The Printer hopes that the excuse of 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.

To Correspondents [heading]
Philo on the New Comet shall appear in our next.
We decline the insertion of Castigator's Song; being fearful of surfeiting the generality of our readers.

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 Hendrickse.
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.
