Notice. [heading]
The Subscribers intending to close their concern on the 31st Instant, will be particularly thankful to those indebted to them, for early assistance, that they may thereby be enabled to pay their Debts. It is their earnest wish, this Notice should be attended to, as on the contrary it is their fixed determination to lodge all Notes and Accounts indiscriminately, which remain unpaid by the first of March next, in the hands of their Lawyer, to be recovered without loss of time; - such proceeding they sincerely hope, may be prevented, as the same will be extremely repugnant to their feelings, however it being a duty they owe their Creditors, as well as themselves, they cannot be blamed.

To the Editor of th [sic] Royal Gazette.
Demerary, 19th January 1810.
Sir, - By inserting the following (if they meet your approbation) you will confer a favour upon A Youth.
While Northern climes, by wintry storms perplex'd
Are, by wars horrors, to their centre vex'd
Fair peace glides quickly o'er the azure main,
By far more gentle, bounteous shores to gain;
Where Demerary swells his rapid tide,
To fertilize the plains on either side,
'Tis there she claims her peaceful throne to place,
And with her kindly arts, the land to grace -
Thus sung the gentle bard three years ago,
The truth he sung; for bard the truth foreknow,
And lo! within that period of time,
What changes made beneath this happy clime.
The greater changes, greater bards may sing,
My muse, is borne but with a youthful wing.
Commerce, Agriculture, let them relate
And sing changes, made in "Church & State"
Amusements only, are my tender themes,
Those flitting objects, oft compair'd to dreams,
And chief of these, behold the mimic world arise,
The Stage transcendant, to deceive the eyes,
"To wake the soul, by tender strokes of art,
To raise the genius, & to mend the heart."
Goepel! to they industrious care we trace,
This new improvement, in this peaceful place,
Let criticks, with their hyperborean cant,
Defame the stage, say all is fustian, all is rant,
Yet will their rigour on themselves redound,
For enemies are few, tho' friends abound,
But lo! see Momus pale, his face in tears,
His form the deepest marks of sorrow wears;
He mourns a favourite, fal'n alas too soon!
Death clouds o'er shadow'd him, ere yet his noon,
Like some fair plant, which just its leaves disclose
Then falls untimely, plp't by winter snows,
So falls Goepel, yet not unmark'd his fall,
His deeds remember'd with his name by all,
His works die not, for yet, (ere long I trust,)
The Theatre renewed, shall grace his dust
And genial friends once more unite to please,
Shall charm the town, with true Theatric ease,
And while loud 'larums, shake the eastern shore,
Urg'd by a daemon, with daemoniac pow'r,
Like proud Britania, we secure shall stand
Nor dred, the wrathful tyrants stern command,
For while Britania rules the azure sea
We live secure, contented, happy, free.

It was expected that the Schooner for which a Signal ran up this morning would be from Barbadoes [sic], with Cummin's Bag, or the Second December Mail, but she turns out to be an American, 45 days from St. Andrews, without any thing new.
