The vessels for the present month's
convoy, have dropped down, and it is expected they will sail on Tuesday.
On Sunday morning last, a boat belonging
to one of the merchant ships in this River, laden with cotton, was unfortunately
overset soon after it left the American stelling. Two white men were on board:
one of whom was saved by the exertions of a Negro who happened to be in a boat
lying near; the other was drowned.
His Majesty's brig Demerary came in on
Sunday from Surinam.
The same day arrived the ship Ruth from
Newfoundland, with a cargo of Cod Fish, consigned to the house of M'Bean and
Co. Vide their advertisement.
To all whom it may concern be it known,
that his Honour the Fiscal has been graciously pleased to grant his permission
for a new Negro Woman marked T IIII and a Bay Horse with no mark at all, to be
sold at public Vendue for the benefit of the Barrack Establishment, if not
owned, and Fees paid, within fourteen days from May 30.
Deaths - On Saturday last, at Capt.

On Sunday, at Plantation Land of Canaan,
Mr. Murdoch Mackenzie.
On Wednesday, Capt. James Senter, of the
transport No. 10.
On Wednesday night, in Bridge Town, Mr.
Robert Stephenson, one of the Commissaries of the Town now called Dalysburg.
The deceased, who was much respected, was interred on Thursday with military
honours; the Rifle Company, to which he belonged, attending for that purpose,
after having done honour to the anniversary of their Sovereign's birth at the
On Friday, in Cumingsburg, Mr. Roberts.
The return of the celebration of the
British Sovereign's Birth-day is one of those occasions, upon which, however
often repeated, the public joy never appears to suffer any diminution. Whether
abroad or at home - whether rolling in wealth or struggling with poverty, the
firing of the first complimentary cannon on that day imparts the same exhilarating
sentiment to his subjects, and is in general productive of the same effects.
On Thursday last, his Majesty completed
the 69th year of his age; and, though we cannot, like our London brethren, spin
out a long account of the morning being ushered in with the ringing of bells -
of flags being hoisted on all the churches and steeples - of new carriages
going to court - or of new dresses sported at the Ball - we can with truth aver
that every respect was shewn the day which could be done during the absence of
his Excellency the Governor at Berbice. The Royal Standard was hoisted at Fort
William Frederick, and the troops in garrison paraded as usual, under the
command of the Hon. Colonel Nicholson. The Militia, commanded by Major Macrae,
mustered in their ground about ten o'clock, (strong, as was to be expected
after the delicate terms in which the request was made in the polite letter of
General and Governor Montgomerie to the Major, inserted in our last week's
paper); and, after being inspected, marched down and joined the line, taking
the left of the Royals. A feu de joie was then fired, and three enthusiastic
cheers given in honour of the day; the Hon. Colonel himself giving the word in
a style which made the scene more impressive. The whole then passed him in
review; and, notwithstanding the rain which fell during the whole time, had
completely spoiled it, as a military spectacle, the Hon. Colonel expressed his
approbation of their appearance and marching, and complimented them with the
full band of the Royals back.
In the afternoon, the Colonel gave a
grand dinner to the Garrison.
We understand it is the intention of
several gentlemen of the Colony to celebrate his Majesty's Birth-day on the
corresponding day in old style, which is the 15th instant, by a Subscription
Ball and Supper. There will no doubt be a great assembly of all the
respectable Ladies and Gentlemen of the two Colonies. That worthy Character
and public-spirited Gentleman Thomas Cuming, Esq. appears to be the promoter of
this patriotic entertainment, assisted, we believe, by Messrs. M'Leod, Macrae,
and Fitzgerald, as Stewards.
