PROPOSALS [heading]
An English Translation of "The Charter, or Conditions on which their High Mightinesses the States General have granted Permission to the Directors of Berbice, to open a free Trade and Navigation to the said Colony for all the inhabitants of the United Netherlands; as also to deliver, lands, already cultivated or not, one equitable terms. From the Dutch original, printed in Amsterdam by order of the Honourable Directors of the Chartered Colony of Berbice, at the Printing Office of Gerard and John de Bruin." To which is added a Translation of the "Regulations for the Board of Directors of the Colony of Berbice, and for all persons interested in it. Enacted by their High Mightinesses, Resolve of the 25th October 1780"
The price will be only f 3 to Subscribers, and the Work will be begun so soon as a sufficient number of copies are subscribed for, to cover the expence of printing.
Subscriptions are taken in at the Printing Office, and at Messrs. Krieger and Schlahorst's New Amsterdam, Berbice.

Two vessels, a lugger and a schooner, arrived on Wednesday from Barbados. In the former came N. Rousselet, Esq. and his newly-married Lady; also the Rev. Mr. M'Mahon, to escort his family away. There was no particular news in Barbados when these vessels sailed; the 1st Dec. packet had not arrived there; nor were there any late extraordinary arrivals from Surinam, that we have yet heard of. An expedition against some of the enemy's settlements, was said to be in contemplation by General Bowyer.

The Gentlemen whom we formerly stated to be appointed Secretary and Receiver of Berbice, it seems, have not entered upon the duties of those offices. The new Secretary there now is Van der Stoop, Esq. and the new Receiver is Hobson, Esq.

The Meeting of the Court of Policy, which was to have taken place on Monday, is deferred for a fortnight.

The Court of Justice is adjourned till the 9th of February.

A salute was fired from Fort William Frederick on Sunday last, in honour of her Majesty's Birth-day.

The Hon. Colonel Nicholson is gone to Barbados on particular business. He carries with him the good wishes of all ranks of society.

We are sorry to learn that there is some ground of apprehension for the safety of the London Fleet. They were expected here the beginning of this month; and, according to the report of an American, who came in last week, one of them, the Good Intent, bound for this port, was seen in the possession of a French corvette, to windward of Surinam. We hope, however, this will turn out to be a mistake.

The Non-Importation Act, passed in the last Session of the American Congress, was to take effect on the 15th November. There was not, we believe, any power given to the President of the United States to suspend the operations of the Act beyond the time fixed; consequently it must have commenced. But the general opinion in England is, that as the Act was, unfortunately, passed in a moment of irritation, it would be repealed as soon as the Congress met in December.

The Members of the Eendragt Society are hereby informed, that on Wednesday, the 28th inst. a meeting will be held; and on Wednesday, the 4th of February, a Balloting will take place.
Demerary, Jan. 24, 1807. T. Duim, Secretary.

C. F. Guintzel hereby informs all those who are indebted to him in his prive[accent], that if they cannot make it convenient to call at his House, opposite to that of Mr. Hallstead, in the New Town, and settle their Accounts within four weeks from the date hereof, he will be under the disagreeable necessity of putting the different papers into the hands of a Lawyer.

The Buildings are all of the best Colony Wood, mostly Green-heart. Those inhabited by Mr. Daly may be seen every day; and there is no doubt but information with respect to the others will be given by the Gentlemen occupying the same.
To person not acquainted with the advantageous situation of the premises, it will be necessary to state, that these Prizes and Premiums are situate in the centre of La Bourgade, Stabroek and adjacencies of that town, and, without contradiction, in the very centre of Commerce and Navigation, and therefore where the greatest population is to be found.
The two First Prizes can not alone be used for spacious Dwelling Houses, but, at the same time, for Magazines, &c. and many Gentlemen Planters may think it advisable to [illegible - gutter of page] jointly each one Lot, upon conditions not alone to indemnify one another, but with a special contract, that should one of them draw one of the Logies, the same shall be kept for their joint and general Store, for their produce, in proportion to their sending the same to the town, for exportation or for or other uses. Further, one of them might be converted into an elegant Church, or any other public Buildings. The on[illegible] are habitations which will never want good occupiers, should the drawers not wish to inhabit them themselves, as it is [illegible] that many Country Gentlemen would chuse them for [illegible] town residences.
Every Prize or Premium is given in possession of the Drawer the instant it is drawn for Twenty-one years, counting from the day of the drawing, without any further expence as for [illegible] the Premium, or for Ground Rent, &c. only for what his [illegible] amount to. During which term the possessor or drawer of such Building or Buildings shall be obliged to keep the same in good repair. And, in default thereof, the same shall be done by Plantation Flushing for his account.
The Gentlemen who at present rent house of Mr. Daly are entitled to occupy the same until the end of their contract; the drawer being afterwards at liberty either to continue the lease or not; and the monies arising from the house rent are to be in favour of the drawer from the day of drawing.
The Drawer submit themselves or their assigns to all the Regulations already made, or in future to be made, by the Commissaries of the Town, chosen by a majority of the [illegible] inhabitants.
