Rio Demerary den 1de Nov 1806.

King's house, Nov. 7, 1806.
His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor highly satisfied with the conduct of some Gentlemen holding the rank of Officers in this Colony, who wish to join the Company of Cavalry as Privates, hereby orders, that if, at any future period, this Corps should be disbanded, such Gentlemen shall not be considered as having forfeited the rank they have held, and the exemption granted them by Law.
By His Excellency's Command,
(Signed) J. Brown, Aid du Camp.

As no attention has been paid to my former Advertisement respecting brining the Horses to water on this Estate, and as the roads from it to town have become very dangerous through the number of horses constantly galloping there, Orders have now been given, not to allow any boy to water his Horse. Still, however, to oblige the Owners of Horses, they may send their boys daily for as many pails of water as they may have occasion for.
Plantation Ruimveld, Nov. 7, 1806. F. Martin.

The Undersigned is obliged, from the frequent accidents that daily happen by the carelessness of Negroes watering Horses, to state, that unless the Horses are rode quietly in a bridle, and that the Negro brings with him a pail, no horse in future will be allowed to water on the Plantation. It is also requested, that the Owners of Horses coming to water, will give strict orders to their Negroes not to tie any Horse to the railing, as it is not quite convenient to keep two Carpenters every day at work, mending the breaches made by such abuse. Any Horse found (after this Notice) tied to the railing, will be sent into the Barracks.
No Grass Cutters will in future be allowed. Further than the Second Gate. Any Negro found inside will be considered a trespasser, and dealt with accordingly. Observe, from this date, all the Watchmen will be armed with muskets, to prevent the depredations that have of late been committed on the back parts of the Plantation.
W. L. Cowan.

Wanted, an Overseer for a Coffee Estate in Canal No. 3. A liberal salary will be given to a person well recommended. Apply to the Printer.

The Members of the Eendragt Society are hereby informed, that on Wednesday, the 19th inst. a Balloting will take place.

The Undersigned gave public notice, in this paper of the 24th May last, that he had resigned Business, and shortly intended to quit the Colony altogether; and at the same time requested, "that such as had claims against him, would apply for them, and those indebted to him, would call and pay their account" [If the latter part of this solicitation had been as well attended to as the former, he would now have been spared the disagreeable task of informing the defaulters, that they will most assuredly be sued at the next January Court, unless they think proper previously to come to a settlement.

Nov. 8, 1806. Jacoba Elizabeth Timmermans.

His Majesty's brig Demerara came in on Wednesday from a cruise.

The Board of the Rolls and Court of Justice will meet on Monday the 17th inst.

We understand, that by a late regulation of the Hon. Court of Policy, the Members of the Hon. Court of Justice are in future to be released from the payment of Head Money for their slaves.

ON Wednesday evening last, as James Robertson, Esq. and Mrs. Dusart, were taking an airing in a single horse chaise, on the road between Le Repentir and La Penitence, they were violently rode against by some Negroes, who were every improperly riding their masters' horses to water. We do not know whether these sable jockeys were riding a race - whether they were practising any new feats of horsemanship - or, whether they fancied themselves Cavalry Men! but we rather think the latter; for they closed their files so admirably, came so well up together, and made so grand a charge, that the poor chaise was instantly shattered to pieces, and it was with difficulty the Gentleman obtained quarter, and escaped bodily injury. As for the Lady, we are sorry to say, she has been extremely ill ever since from the bruises and the fright she received. The display of blood and bottom on the part of the horsemen, however, unfortunately for them, did not end here. There were soon surrounded, taken prisoners, and reported to the Hon. the Fiscal, who ordered a severe flogging to each; which punishment was inflicted the next evening on the public road, as an example to others, and we hope it will have the desired effect. Masters should not allow their boys to ride the horses to water; they must know that negroes are not fit to be trusted. It is more safe, more proper, for the slaves to lead them, and at the same time it has a more decent appearance.

(Deaths.) On Thursday, I. Robb, Esq.
The same day, on Plantation Wittenburg, Mrs. Adriana De Wit.
Early of Friday morning, suddenly Mr. Ritman, baas [sic] to J. H. Wideman, Esq. This unfortunate man is said to have himself put a period to his existence by a pistol.
