extract from a Letter from the Secretary to the Commissioners for Auditing
Public Accounts, to His Excellency the Acting Lieut. Governor, is hereby made
Public for the information of those concerned, and of which all Public
Accountants are requested to take Notice:-
Office, Somerset Place,
"Sir, - I
am directed by the Commissioners for Auditing the Public Accounts to inform
you, that it is required by an Act of 46 Geo: III. Chap. 141. Sec. 8. that all
Public Accounts shall, within three Calendar Months at the least after the 31st
December in each Year, or within three Months after the period to which their
Accounts are usually made up, deliver into, or transmit to this Office, an
Account Current of all Sums of Money received and paid by them for the Public
Service within the preceding Year, duly attested upon Oath before one of the
Barons of the Court of Exchequer, one of the Commissioners of this Board, or
the Chief or principal Magistrate of any place out of the United Kingdom where
the person attesting the same may reside at the time of such attestation; which
Account is to be accompanied, by Vouchers, Authorities, and all other Documents
necessary in support thereof, and in every respect fit for Examination and
Audit. I am therefore to request that you will pay due attention to the
provisions of the above Act, as far as it may regard you, and that you will
have the goodness to give Notice of such provisions to all Public Accountants
within your Government, and to apprise such of them as have not yet transmitted
their Public Accounts to this Board, that they are to make up and transmit to
this Board without delay, complete Accounts, made up in the manner above
described from the date of their appointments to the 31st December 1805, and
seperate [sic] Accounts for the Years 1806 and 1807, or for any broken period
of the said respective Years during which they may have been in the receipt and
expenditure of Public Monies, taking care to keep the services previous to the
1st of January 1806, distinct from those of subsequent periods."
Ordinances are re-published, by Authority, for the information of all
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
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.
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.
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
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
Thus Resolved in

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.
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: -
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
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.
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
