The following Ordinances are re-published, by Authority, for the information of all concerned: -
By the Governor General and the Honble: Court of Police of the Rivers and Districts of Essequebo and Demerary, &c. &c. &c.
To all whom these Presents may come, or concern, Greeting! be it known:
Whereas We have taken into consideration the representations, that have been made of late with respect to the unrestricted Traffick of Gun-Powder, carried on by all those who think it proper, which may give Cause to a great many abuses, and having also deliberated the Dreadfull consequences which may proceed, particularly in Stabroek, should every Person be at liberty to have an unlimited quantity of Gun Powder at his abode.
This Court has thought expedient to enact by these Presents, that henceforth no Person whatsoever, either residing on any Plantation or in any of the Towns be permitted to have on his Estate or in his Dwelling House more ammunition then [sic] Five Pounds of Gun-Powder for his own use, and the same quantity for every effective Burgher living with him or her (including the Ball Cartridges that are to be provided agreeable to the Burgher Regulations; all Inhabitants are hereby enjoined to remove within Four Weeks after these have been sent about in the respective Divisions, all the Gun-Powder which they may have over and above the before-mentioned quantity, either in Essequebo to the town where the same is to be deposited to the care of the provisional Commissary Von Kl[illegible]r, or in Demerary with the Commander of the Garrison residing in Camp near the Fort William Frederick. - The Proprietors of any Gun-Powder thus removed will obtain a Receipt for the same, as in Essequebo from said provisional Commissary, and in Demerary from some Person to be appointed by the Commandant of the Garrison, with the sanction of the Governor General, all Persons transgressing these Orders will forfeit a Fine of One Hundred and Fifty Guilders.
From the before-said limitation as to the quantity of Gun-Powder, are to be excepted the Merchants, who will be specially authorised to Sell that Article, it being required that these only remove to the Town of Essequebo or to the Camp in Demerary, all the Gun-Powder they have over and above One Hundred Weight, which quantity they are now and in future Permitted to have in their Houses or Stores, but not exceeding, on a like Penalty of f 150 Fine, exclusive of having the said Permission immediately annulled.
The Proprietors of Gun-Powder deposited as before said will on their written Order, receive from time to time, free of any expences, to the quantity of Five Pounds, and the Merchants to that of One Hundred Pounds.
All Persons in these Colonies, are forbid to Sell any Gun-Powder, or cause the same to be Sold, or to give in Payment or exchange or cause such to be done to any Person whatsoever, this being permitted to such Merchants only as will have obtained a Written licence from the Governor General (who is requested and authorised to grant them) and whereof notice will be given in a subsequent Advertisement by Government, all those transgressing this Order will incurr every time a Fine of Five Hundred Guilders.
The said Merchants are not permitted to Sell any Gun-Powder but to Persons that are well known to them, and not in a greater quantity then [sic] Five pounds every time; it is expressly forbid to Sell that Article to Slaves under any pretence whatsoever, and should any Persons that are unknown to the before-said Merchants, ask for Gun-Powder alleging they want it for their Burgher equipment, such Merchants, previous to delivering any Ammunition, are bound to demand and to obtain a Certificate from the Burgher Officer that Commands the Company or Division to which such a Burgher belongs, by which it appears that the Ammunition is really wanted for said purpose, all on pain that the said Merchants shall on transgressing either of these Orders, incurr a Fine of Five Hundred Guilders, and exclusively Forfeit the License granted to them by the Governor General for Selling Ammunition.
It is likewise prohibited to all Slaves without any distinction to go about on the Roads or Plantations with Gun-Powder or Shot for the purpose of Huckstering, on pain of Corporal Punishment, and should it appear that they had done the same by Order of their Masters, the last-mentioned will be liable to a Fine of Five Hundred Guilders. - And in order to prevent the Sale of Ammunition on Plantations more effectually, all Proprietors or Managers on Plantations are Authorised and if necessary enjoined, when they may meet on the Roads or on their Plantation any Person, either Free or not, who goes about for the purpose of Huckstering Ammunition to act as follows. - If the same is a Slave, he shall be sent immediately with the Articles found on him to the Fiscaals in the respective Towns, and should the same be a Free Man, he is to be detained and with the knowledge of the nearest Burgher Officer secured, until he sent for by the Fiscaal, to whom immediate Notice is to be given in such a case.
And it is lastly very expressly forbid to all Masters, Supercargoes or other Commanders of Vessels or Craft that arrive in these colonies, to Sell any Gun-Powder to others but to those Merchants as are specially Authorised by Government, to retail that Article, on forfeiture of such Gun-Powder and the said Fine of Five Hundred Guilders.
All former Regulations that may be anywise contradictory with these are Annulled.
The Fines fixed by this Our Proclamation are to be applied as follows, one-third for the Fiscaal, one-third for the Poor and the other third for the Informer.
And in Order that no Person may Pretend to be Ignorant hereof, these shall be Printed, Published, posted up and sent about in the respective Divisions as usually done.
Thus Resolved in Our Ordinary Assembly in Stabroek, Rio Demerary, the 20th of May 1803, and Published the 20th of July following.

[republishing of Anthony Beaujon of 25th May 1803 reasserting the Ordinance of 8th of June 1789. about slave population - see 18050525EDG for text]

By His Excellency Anthony Beaujon Esq., Governor in and over the Colonies of Essequebo and Demerary, and their Dependencies, President in all Courts and Colleges: - and the Honble: Court of Policy of the said Colonies; &c. &c.
Unto all whom these Presents shall or may come, Greeting! be it known:
Whereas it is essential for the good of the Colonies to adopt measures for encreasing the number of White Inhabitants throughout the Country and whereas We have considered that altho' an Ordinance was made by this Court on the 8th of June 1789, in this behalf, enacting that the number of Whites upon Estates or Plantations should be in the proportion of at least One White Male Person to every Fifty Working Slaves; - yet that this Law, from not having been enforced for a considerable time, has become obsolete, and whereas it appears to us necessary from the greater extent of the Colony and the considerable encrease of the Black Population since the above period, that the Ordinance aforesaid should be revived with such amendments as are called for by the present state of the Colony, for the better attainment of the object abovementioned.
We therefore have judged fit to alter and amend the Ordinance aforesaid of the 8th of June 1789 and in consequence to enact, and it is hereby enacted accordingly, that on all Estates or Lands in these Colonies, the number of White Male Persons, in proportion to the number of Male and Female Slaves on such Estates or Lands, shall and must be as follows, viz: -
On Estates, Plantations or Lands on which the total number of Slaves of every description, is from One to 75 inclusive, One White.
From 75 to 200 inclusive, 2 Whites.
From 200 to 350 inclusive, 3 Whites.
From 350 to 450 inclusive, 4 Whites.
From 450 to 550 inclusive, 5 Whites.
From 550 to 600 and upwards, 6 Whites.
And it is also enacted that each and every Proprietor or Attorney of any Estate or Land in these Colonies, shall be bound to conform to the present Ordinance within the space of Six Months from and after the date of the Publication thereof, on Pain of forfeiting a Penal Sum or Fine of Five Hundred Guilders for each White Male Person that according to the foregoing classification shall be found deficient on any Estate or Land; to which fine, after the Term of Six Months so fixed in the first Instance, shall again be liable on the expiration of every Three Months of their so being or continuing deficient in conforming to the present Law.
The said Fines to be divided one-third for the Fiscaal, another third for the Poor, and the remaining third for the Informer or Informers.
Those Free Coloured Persons employed on any Estate or Land in these Colonies, who on representation made by their Employers shall be approved of by His Excellency the Governor or the Commandeur respectively, shall with respect to the provisions of the present Ordinance, be considered in the same light as Whites.
And that no ignorance may be pretended hereof, the present Ordinance shall be Published, posted-up. Printed and sent round in the respective Divisions, for general information.
Thus Enacted at our Ordinary Assembly held at the Court House in Stabroek, on the 30th of April 1805, and Published in Demerary, on the 25th of May next thereto following.
