The Undersigned beg leave to acquaint
all whom it may concern, that, during the absence of the Partners (Messrs.
Mackenzie and M'Leod), they are duly qualified to transact Business for the
firm of Wm. Mackenzie & Co. of this Colony, and that the second Subscriber
continues to attend for that purpose at their Counting House in Kingston.
The Debtors of said Firm are at the same
time respectfully informed, that no further indulgence can be given to them,
the credit of the House requiring the most speedy collection possible of these
outstanding debts; to which effect, the Undersigned have ordered to use the
most summary means.
The Houses and Lots in Cumingsburg and
Kingston belonging to Messrs. Wm. Mackenzie and Co. are both offered for Sale
or Hire. For particulars, apply as above. Colin Macrae.

such of his Subscribers as may happen to receive a queer sheet this week. He
has the satisfaction to state that the long expected paper is arrived on board
the Good Intent; but not being able to get it landed in time (though he must
acknowledge every effort was made by Captain Stuveng), he has been necessitated
to make up sufficient for this publication of odds and ends.

We are sorry to have to state, that
another inhabitant of this Colony was on Tuesday last arraigned for selling Rum
contrary to law. The prisoner requested that he might be indulged with
counsel, to which the Court having agreed, he chose Messrs. Hofstede and
Cantzlaar. These Gentlemen, however, begging to be excused, he presented a
petition to the Hon. Court, praying that they might be ordered to under take
his defence, which the Court did accordingly. Thus commanded, the above
Gentlemen exercised their abilities in his behalf yesterday, and this day sentence
was pronounced, viz. to pay a Fine of One Thousand Guilders, and be banished
for Twenty Years.
Died. - On Thursday morning last, at the
house of Wm. Niel, in Bridge Town, Mr. John M'Verran, lately from Tobago.
Same day, in Cumingsburg, Mr. Cornelis
In North America, died, the same day,
and were buried in the same place, two old inhabitants of this Colony, viz. Mr.
I. F. Le Blanc, who resided upwards of 12 years in Canal No. 2, as Manager of
the Estate now the property of R. B. Daly, Esq. And Mr. Thos. Hays, who, after
a long residence here, left us a few months ago for the recovery of his health.
