Notice is hereby given that all Ships and vessels in the Ports of these Colonies are at liberty to depart the same in Ballast, or with such Articles of Produce as are allowed to be Exported from hence, notwithstanding any thing in my Proclamation of the 19th January, to the contrary.

Robt: Nicholson.
By Command,
Geo: Eddington, Govt. Secty.

BY His Excellency Colonel Robert Nicholson, Acting Lieutenant Governor in and over the Colonies of Essequebo and Demerary, and their Dependencies, President in all Courts and Colleges, &c. &c. and The Honb: Court of Policy, of the said Colonies, &c. &c.
To all whom these presents may or shall concern, Greeting, be it known:
Whereas it has been found on experience that the provisions made by the existing Laws on Public Roads and Bridges in these Colonies, for effecting that said Roads and Bridges should constantly be kept up in the order thereby required, are not fully adequate to that end, - and Whereas it appears to us that this object would probably be better attained by subjecting the Public Roads and Bridges to the superintendance of Commissaries chosen from the Inhabitants themselves in each District of the Colony;
We therefore on a revisal of the general Ordinance on Public Roads and Bridges, enacted on the 31st of October 1796, and published on the 23d November of the same Year, with the several subsequent amendments thereof, have judged fit, by way of further amendment of the same, to enact, and it is hereby enacted accordingly, as follows, viz:-
In each of the Districts of these Colonies herein after to be mentioned, two Commissaries or Way-Wardens are to be appointed by this Court, on whom it shall be incumbent to see that the Public Roads and Bridges throughout the District are at all times kept in the order required by the general Ordinance of the 23d of November 1796, and by the several subsequent amendments thereof.
In case of either of the said Commissaries or Way-Wardens observing that a Road or Bridge in their District is not in the order required by the Law, they shall immediately give warning thereof to the Proprietor, Attorney or Manager of the Estate to which such Road or Bridge belongs, and fix the space of time within which the defect must be altered or repaired; and should such warning or notice not be complied with, they shall at the expiration of the time so fixed, transmit a Report thereof to the Fiscaal of the Colony, in order that he may recover the Fine or Fines such Defaulters are liable to according to Law. - In fixing the space of time time for repairing any defect in a Road or Bridge, the Way-Wardens shall govern themselves according to what is ordered in this respect by the existing Laws, and where any thing is required to be done for which the time has not been already limited by the said Laws, the Way Wardens shall fix the same at their reasonable discretion.
It is further enacted that the Reports or Certificates of the Way-Wardens shall, to all intents and purposes, be considered and acted upon as complete legal evidence in recovering the Fines from defaulters; - and in cases where any defaulters, after having become liable to or incurred the Fines fixed by the Laws, and in which they have been amerced [sic] by the Way-Wardens, do nevertheless persevere in disregarding the injunctions of the Way-Wardens, the latter shall then have the power, immediately to have the Work, whether of repairing or altering a Road or Bridge, done at the expence of such defaulter, and the amount thereof, on an Account certified by the Way-Wardens, is to be levied by Execution of such defaulters as provided by the general Ordinance aforesaid.
It is further enacted that in case of remissness on the part of the Way-Wardens in executing the Authority entrusted to them for the Public good, or on complaint made by any respectable Inhabitant, that the Way-Wardens have neglected or refused to interfere in chusing any defective Road or Bridge pointed out to them, to be repaired, the said Way-Wardens, on such charge or complaint being judged well founded shall incur and pay, as well as, and exclusive of the defaulter himself, the Fine or Fines provided by the Laws against the particular defect, whether in Road or Bridge, to which such complaint shall refer. - The Actions for the recovery of the Fines in this case, to be instituted at the risk of the Fiscaals, unless they should have received a previous special injunction or authorisation for that purpose, from the Governor or the Commandeur of Essequebo respectively.
All the former Ordinances on the subject of Public Roads and Bridges are to remain in full force as far as any thing therein contained is not particularly altered or amended by the present Publication.
In consequence of the foregoing Regulations, We have made the following Appointments of Way-Wardens in the respective Districts of Essequebo and Demerary, untill the 1st of March 1809, viz: -

-- Hominem pagina nostra sapit.
The political die seems to be cast. The United empire of George the Third stands alone: Its august Sovereign is the solitary Protector of Religion, Moral Order, and Civil Society!
His loyal Subjects know, that, unless Monarchy is constitutionally maintained, supported and defended, They cannot assure themselves of the enjoyment of either liberty or Peace.
Animated by this inherent and incompressible idea of spontanious [sic] irracliancy [sic], every Briton, from his inmost soul, invokes the Supreme Dictator of Heaven's unsullied mandates, who in the infinity of his Power call'd this Terrestrial habitation into form (wisely creating for it, Tennants at Will) to delay the approach of England's Meridian.
Britons! view with firmness your immediate, important, and hazardous situation: call to your solemn recollection the National benefits you derived from the unequalled talents, dignify'd style, incessant application, and paramount accumen of, the assiduous relative of the virtuous and fluent Lord Chatham. Englishmen ought to engrave on their hearts, and instil into the susceptible minds of their ripening offspring the Godlike Pitt's associated maxim: - "That when any empire is subordinately linked with another, in relative compacts, the extreme pride, and cherished, self-sufficiency of the superior, constitutes the danger of the connection" - Wou'd to God, the Genii of England had succeeded in their placid petition to the gustful Throne of Omnipotence for prolonging his stay: whose effulgence of ethic excellence, combined with natural persuasive mildness awed the haughty, convinced and subjected the turbulent. His attachmet to his Sovereign and his love for the British Constitution was eternal! under all his trials, none can say, that, in any one instance he yielded up his protection of the Oak, to court the convenient favors of the salacious Willow.
Britannia may cease to lament the loss, - 'tis irreparable. - Her tears, tho' they flow like unmeasurable rain drops, cannot effect the recal of such transcendent worth. Peath to His Manes departed Favourite of disenterested [sic] and Virtuous Loyalty.
---------------- My mind is inveloped [sic] in sympathetical commisseration, and completely disvested of ireision [sic] when I speak of one of the Heaven born Pitt's successors in Office whatever were his weaknesses and frailties we all have, let them be absorbed with him, in his Tomb, but not introduced into his Epitpah.
[to be continued] [centered]

[right pointing hand icon] The Lines from E. are unavoidably postponed 'till next Week.

The second December Mail arrived here on Saturday Evening last: - It brings London Papers to the 16th December inclusive. Upon the arrival of the Mail Boat a report was in circulation that the King was dead, there is however, no reason to believe the report, altho' a paragraph in one of the Papers mentions that indisposition had prevented His Majesty from coming to Town from Windsor as usual. As nothing very circumstancial [sic] is mentioned; we may yet hope that His Majesty will soon be in a situation, to appear in Town.

By a Vessel arrived in England, from Holland, Letters have been received which state that Tallyrand was shortly expected at the Hague, his journey is evidently connected with some considerable political change about to take place in Holland, indeed the answer of King Louis, to the Dutch Legislative Body, in which he says - "he can do them but little service, that his health is declining, and that he does not expect any favourable change," is hints that are evidently preparatory to his abdication of the Throne of Holland, and to leave that ill-fated Country, to become merely a Province of France. According to the latest accounts from Rotterdam, we learn that Trade is completely at a stand, and that according to accounts by Passengers the People at large have declared their inability to pay the Taxes. The Captain of the above Vessel states that note of the Vessels detained under Bonaparte's decree of September last, had been permitted to depart, yet a Passenger in the same Vessel says that several of them had been released, but that their Cargoes had been confiscated.

A report prevailed in London on the 15th of December, that Sir Sidney Smith had returned to the Tagus (after escorting the Royal Family of Portugal a considerable way on their journey) and had made himself master of the whole Russian and Portuguese Squadrons. It is known that he entered that River on the 18th November.

The Active Privateer spoke one of his Squadron the day before, no dispatches have yet been received from this Gallant Officer.

The following singular Paragraph is taken from a respectable Liverpool Paper, dated the 10th December 1807:-
"It is an undoubted fact that goods have in the course of these few days been cleared at our Custom-house, as for a neutral or friendly port, but which have positively been shipped by the merchants under a licence signed by Tallyrand himself, and transferred to this country to ensure their secure landing in a French port. - Our government will do well to look to this trick of the enemy."

On the 23d ult. His Majesty's Ship Argo, Capt. Digby, arrived in Barbados from Goree, on her passage she touched at St. Jago, (one of the Cape de Verd Islands) and there obtained a report which had reached St. Jago about the 3d or 4th of January, that Admiral De Courcey had fallen in with the Rochfort Squadron, soon after it had quitted that Port, and had taken six large and one smaller Ships, and that the rest had effected their escape into Port. The abouve account bears some marks of probability about it, as Admiral De Courcey was known to be cruising off Rochfort, and from the circumstance of the Enemy expecting some further supplies at Martinique.

The West India Convoy was waiting at Portmoth [sic], on the 13th December, for a fair wind; the Convoy is unusually large.

Two Ships, the Triton, Van Dyk, and the Fortune, --- both of the London Fleet arrived here last night. The Triton parted convoy off Cape Finisterre, in a Gale of Wind. The Fleet consisted of upwards of one hundred sail of Vessels under Convoy of the Astrea Frigate and a Sloop of War. The Fortune left Convoy, (as we hear) in consequence of observing a Russian 74 gun ship in the midst of Fleet, and fell in with the Triton off this Coast. We understand there were 12 vessels for this Port. The Triton spoke the Grenada, Capt. Richardson, two days before she parted from the Fleet. They sailed from Portsmouth on the 18th of December.

Four of the prize schooners captured at St. Thomas and Santa Croix have been commissioned for His Majesty's service, and the following Officers appointed to them:-
To the Maria, Lieut. Bennet, from the Swinger.
Bacchus, Lieut. Malbon, from the Skipjack.
Elizabeth, Lieut. Fitch, from the Grouper.
Subtle, Lieut. Spearing, from the Bellisle.
Lieut. Fellows, from the Melville to the Swinger.
Lieut. Anthony, from the Acasta to the Skipjack.
Lieut. Winlark, from the Cerberus to the Grouper.
Mr. Morgan, Sub-Lieut. of the Express to the Acasta.
Mr. Russel, Midship. of the Bellisle to the Cerberus.
The Favourite's name is changed to Goree, and Lieut. the Hon. Michael De Courcy, of the Bellisle, acting Commander of her, in the room of Capt. Parkinson, sent to England with dispatches.

Half past 3 o'Clock P. M. - The Julia Brig is comeing [sic] into the River; - we understand she brings Dollars from Barbados for the Payment of the Troops.
