Mr. Printer, Demerary, Nov. 8,
Sir - It is scarcely necessary for me to
say, that I feel the most heartfelt and keen remorse at having so far committed
my character as ever to suffer my name to appear in public, connected with that
of so universally despised and notorious a pest to society - Martin Doyle. had
I been as well acquainted with the vile depravity of his profligate heart, as the
whole Colony now appears to b, the wealth of the Indies - nay, no earthly
consideration whatever - should have induced me even to be seen in his company.
Like the midnight assassin in the garb of a monk, he took advantage of my
inexperience and short standing in the colony, and, by his sanctified sophistry
and pretended religious deportment, succeeded in making me believe him what I
have since found him to be as different from as light from darkness, or heat
from cold, viz. an honest man.
The consummate hypocrisy which the
atrocious and abandoned wretch then displayed, is only equalled by the
impudence and total disregard of truth evinced in the letter which bears his
signature, published in your last paper. I shall not attempt to vie with the
writer thereof in abuse; the greater part, in my opinion, required no other
reasoning than the powerful force of Argumentum Backalinum, and with the
administering of that I should have been contented, did I not know that your
papers go out of the Colony, and into societies where I am known, but where
such a grovelling miscreant as Martin Doyle dare not attempt to show his face.
On that account alone, Sir, I think proper to state, that I am ready to prove,
at my Domicilium, at any time, the truth of what I have before asserted. There
also I am ready and willing to exhibit the Books of the Concern to any
respectable Gentlemen, by which it will appear that he is indebted more than f
15,000, while I stand in credit upwards of f 12,000, a balance sheet whereof I
had the honour to present to the Hon. V. A. Heyliger, Acting President of the
Hon. Court of Justice, before which tribunal he must not flatter himself (by
mistaking indulgence for irresolution] that I have given up my intention of
Convinced, therefore, that I am duly
warranted in so doing, I now finally direct and request that no payments may be
made to him, on account of the late Firm of Doyle & Wells, nor did I wish,
or offer myself to receive any till the business is determined by the said Hon.
With regret for giving you so much
trouble concerning so dastardly and truly unworthy a being, I am, Sir, yours,
&c. W. H. Wells.

There appears to be very little doubt
that the Pyreka boat is taken, but we are happy to state that the enemy has not
been equally successful in every instance. In an intended attack on the boat
of Mr. R. Cozier, most likely by the same canoe, these modern buccaneers were
completely foiled, and with such considerable loss as will we hope put a stop
to their depredations, at least for a time. The following are the particulars.
Mr. R. Cozier, accompanied by his two
Nephews, Messrs. Yarwood, Ebern, Pollard, Clark, and some more Gentlemen, with
Negroes, (making 17 persons in the whole), on retuning to town from his
Plantation, had put into Evergreen. On the 31st ult. they sailed thence, but
had not been long out of the trench when they discovered the privateer, and
observed her, in the twinkling of an eye, to hoist out her canoe. Mr. Cozier
was for waiting and giving them battle, being well prepared; but there being
sufficient water to return into the trench, it was generally thought most
prudent so to do. Here they remained unmolested till the dusk of the evening,
when the canoe was again observed to be fast approaching. Everybody being now
well armed and prepared, Mr. C. begged them to lay down on the deck while he
watched the proper moment of firing with effect. He then waited till the canoe
was close abreast of the trench, at not more than 60 yards distance, when,
giving the signal, such a volley of musketry was poured in that the Spaniards
appeared to be quite thunderstruck, and never attempted to proceed to the
attack, nor did they return a single shot till they had got to a considerable distance,
when they gave one from their swivel. Mr. C. and his friends kept peppering
away at them till they were out of reach of musketry; some of the party then
jumped ashore, and gave them a few shot from a pie of cannon there fixed. From
the short distance at which the cane was when the first few rounds were fired,
and the nature of the charges put in the muskets, every one of which had three
balls besides shot, there is no doubt but great execution was done. Mr. C.
thinks that at least half her crew must have been killed or wounded, and indeed
it seems likely that she was too much damaged to reach the schooner that
evening, as the latter vessel was making signals all night, and in the morning
she fired a gun.
The conduct of Mr. R. Cozier, and t, and in the morning she fired a gun.
The conduct of Mr. R. Cozier, and do
more towards putting a stop to the depredations of these marauders than perhaps
any other measures.
