On Monday last, as the schooner with the
baggage of His Excellency Gen. and Governor Montgomerie on board, was
proceeding to Berbice, she unfortunately got aground near the Plantation La
Petite Fortune, and stuck so fast that all the efforts of the crew to remove
her were ineffectual. Mr. and Mrs. Firebrace with three children, and Mrs. and
Miss Beresford were passengers on board, and of course in a very disagreeable
situation; luckily, however, it was moderate weather, and their distress was
considerably alleviated by the kind attentions of H. H. Post, Esq. who sent
them every refreshment, till a colony schooner was procured from town by Mr.
Heywood, which took them safely on board, when they proceeded on their voyage.
The schooner, &c. however, still remained fixed in the sand, till, by the
prompt assistance of Messrs. Post, Florimont, and Breton, who sent upwards of
150 negroes for the purpose, a canal was dug at low water, and she was again
got afloat on Wednesday morning.
Too much praise cannot be given to the
above named gentlemen for their humane and generous conduct, as well as for their
indefatigable exertions, on this occasion.
The Regulation respecting the Change of
Domicilium from one Colony to another, which we mentioned upwards of a month
ago to be in agitation, was published the 19th instant. It is now the Colonial
Law, that no person shall transfer his Domicilium from Essequebo to Demerary,
or vice versa, without giving notice thereof three times in either of the
authorised weekly Newspapers of this Colony.
(Such Advertisements will be inserted in
this paper in English alone, or in Dutch alone, for Two Guilders a time; or in
both Dutch and English, the whole three times, for Four Dollars.)
On Monday the 21st of September 1807, at
two o'clock in the morning, Jacob van Millingen, Esq. Member of the Hon. Board
of Orphans, departed this life.
Without the bright talents which shine
in the Statesman or Hero, his life, more useful to society, has been cut off in
the vigour of it by the will of the Almighty.
His amiable mind, adorned with useful
talents and benevolence, rendered him precious to his friends and society. He
was equitable, just, though feeling for the errors and faults of mankind, and
scorned to depress more those already afflicted. Exemplary in the fulfilment
[sic] of his duties, he never deviated from the paths of honour and virtue.
He is no more!!! - You indigents, to
whom he offered consolation and relief - You Orphans, who deplore in him a
Father- You Friends, whom he esteemed and loved, who now with the same
sentiments feel so severely his loss - let the sacred tear of pity drop on his
untimely grave, and repeat with a Latin poet,
Ossa quieta precor! Tura requiescant in
Et sit humus cineri non onerosa tue.
The remains of the above worthy
Gentleman were interred on Monday evening at the usual burying place, after a
very affecting discourse by the Rev. G. Ryk. Upwards of 100 Gentlemen attended
