There have been two arrivals since Saturday, with the Ceres from Liverpool, and Union from Newfoundland, but nothing new by either of them.

Silence respecting the progress of the Expedition lately fitted out to windward under the command of C. Edmonston Esq. against the Bush Negroes, being no longer, if it was ever thought seriously necessary; we now take leave to announce the return of the Party, with Seventy-six black prisoners, after having killed Twenty-six more in different skirmishes with the Banditti. The prisoners were marched through town this morning and are either to be sent on board a Hulk already moored for that purpose in the mouth of the River, as soon as properly fitted up for their reception, or divided amongst the shipping in the harbour. We mention these things on report without vouching for their authenticity.

Demerary, 19th December, 1809.

New Town, 27th Dec. 1809.
In consequence of being appointed Treasurer to St. George's Church at a Meeting of the Subscribers thereto, held by public advertisement the 20 inst. at Marshall's Hotel, the undersigned, in order to ascertain what monies may be yet due by the Committee under whose direction the Church has been erected, and to bring all accounts against the same to a close by the 25th of March next, according to order, requests all persons having accounts relating to the Church, to be pleased to render to him an exact statement of them, properly authenticated by any one of the Committee, crediting at the same time such payments as may have been made on account thereof.
He will also be obliged to those Persons, who have taken Pews, for the amount of the Rent fixed at the above meeting to be paid immediately, for which Receipts guaranteeing the entire and free possession of the same will be given by him.
And, as some respectable names appear as Subscribers to this excellent purpose, who have suffered the payment of their Donations to escape recollection, he was particularly desired to call upon them to pay the same without delay; he therefore hopes to be excused for thus publicly soliciting them to contribute their assistance, that he may be the better prepared to meet every claim, and save himself the unpleasantness of importunate and repeated applications.
James Robertson, Treasurer.
