Mr. Printer,
Please to publish the enclosed Copy of a Letter written to his Excellency Governor Bentinck some time previous to his departure from the Colony.
Stabroek, Appril 9, 1807.
His Excellency Governor Bentinck,
Sir -- In consequence of the conversation which I had with your Excellency yesterday, I am induced to state in writing what I then explained.
I first heard from Mr. Armstrong, that you had issued a Proclamation, dismissing four of the Members of the College of Kiezers and myself. He informed me at the same time, that he had declared to your Excellency (prior to the Proclamation) that I had not signed, nor had any knowledge of the Letter addressed to you. This was literally the fact; for Mr. Armstrong and myself left the fort immediately after giving our votes.
Mr. Nugent has also since given you his testimony, but no blame could attach to me in this point. I was entirely ignorant of you having adderssed a letter to the college, in answer thereto, until I came to town; but as I was not present at the first meeting, I cannot be imlicated in any of the proceedings of that meeting.
I declare solemnly, that since I have had the honour of making one of that College, I have executed my duty conscientiously, and, in every instance where I have given a vote, i have considered the duty a most sacred one, and have religiously justified the tenor of my Oath.
Had these circumstances been known and duly considered, I have a confidence in saying, that you would not have included me in such a Proclamation; and I am now candid in declaring that I expect that justice from your Excellency, which the nature of the case requires.
I have the honour to be your Excellency's obedient, humble servant, (Signed) John Hubbard.

WANTED, [heading]
For a Cotton and Coffee Estate, an experienced Manager. Any one who can produce good Recommendations, may hear further particulars by applying to the Printer.
July 18, 1807

The George, Capt. D. M'Taggert, came in this morning from Newfoundland, laden with Fish, to the House of Douglas, Reid, & Co. (See Adv.)

Two schooners with slaves arrived on Saturday from Barbados, at the same time with the Demerara, which brought the mail. (Vide Advert. of Messrs. Naghten & Fitzgerald.)

The depredations almost nightly committed in this town and its vicinity,. for want of a well-regulated police, call aloud for some means of prevention. One of our most respectable subcribers, who has himelf been a severe sufferer lately by the evil complained of, suggests the propriety of establishing a Town Guard, which, under proper regulations, he is of opinion, would be attended with the most beneficial effects.

Some misreprentations having gone abroad respecting the late intelligence brought from Monte Video by the Juno, we give the following extract from the original letter to Messrs. Heywood and Taylor on the subject: [letter notes that a cargo of spirits would be very profitable]

We have it from good authority, that His Excellency General and Governor Montgomerie has offered to grant any assistance in his power towards the furtherance of a commercial intercourse of the above nature.

Vessels Entered and Cleared Since Our Last.

July 13. Brig Rebecca, Joseph Harrold, from Portsmouth.
July 13. Schooner Porcupine, Benj. Stamers from Barbados.
July 13. Brig Montpelier, R. S. Tibbits, from Portsmouth.
