The ingenious Author of the English and
Dutch Acrostic was not aware, perhaps, that our paper has the honour of being
perused by Ladies as well as Gentlemen, his communication, therefore, is not
altogether proper for our use, though it may be though a d----d good thing over
It gives us concern to state, that the
Highlander, Capt. Stevenson, and two other homeward bound running ships, have
been captured by the enemy. The former is said to have arrived at Point a
Petre on the 30th ult. It was at first supposed that the two other ships were
the Maxwell and Jason from this port; but that was found to be an error. The
following account from the Barbados Mercury, it will be seen, makes them the
America and Ajax; there appears, however, to be some mistake in the latter
name, so such vessel, we believe having sailed from this port; perhaps it
should be the Alexander, which did sail about the same time.
[Barbados Mercury article not
More correct accounts have been since
received here from the other islands, which state the ships captured to be the
Highlander and Alexander from this port, and Anne and Harriet, from Berbice,
and that the enemy was left in chase of two more. The Harriet has been
recaptured by his Majesty's schooner Mozambique, and sent into Grenada; but it
is feared the others are got safe into Guadaloupe.
The Park and Tower guns were fired in
London on the 21st Feb. for the taking of Curracoa. Besides the ships of war
taken there, consisting of a Dutch frigate, Kenan Husslar, of 36 guns, the
Surinam sloop, of 22 guns, Flying Fish schooner, of 14 guns, and a Spanish
schooner of 10 guns, 69 other fell into the hands of the captors, besides
300,000 dollars, in specie.
The vessels of war made a gallant
resistance, most of their officers being either killed or wounded before they
surrendered. Among the former was the Commodore J. C. Evertsz, who bravely
fell while encouraging his men. He was, we believe, an elder brother of Mr.
Evertsz, of this colony. The gazette account of this capture will be given the
We understand that His Excellency
Lieutenant Governor Bentinck is about to depart for Europe, for the
re-establishment of his health. In consequence of his Excellency's
indisposition, the Hon. J. J. Kotwyk officiated as President of the Court of
Justice this week.
His Majesty's sloop Helena, Capt. Worth,
which convoyed the Cork fleet her, went over the bar on Thursday, and we
believe has since sailed - A handsome vessel, or a finer crew, perhaps, never
before was in this port. She will first go to the Western Isles, and then

On Wednesday week, at the same place,
Dr. Maasbach, Manager of Belle Vue.
On Friday week, at Mahaica, Joseph
Stads, Esq. formerly Exploiteur here.
On Thursday morning last, Mr. Aut,
partner with Mr. Schaapers, blacksmith. He went to bed the preceding evening
in perfect health, and at three o'clock in the morning was a corpse.
On Thursday night last, Mr. Francis
Cromby. The deceased having belonged to the Rifle Company, was buried by them
with military honours.
