J. R. Brandt,
hereby makes known, that he has taken his passage for Europe on board the
Demerary, Capt. Inglis, the time of whose sailing may be seen by the papers. -
He finds it absolutely necessary to give this information, as he is sorry to
say the principal part of those to whom he addressed his Advertisement of the
30th December last, have paid no attention to it; affecting to believe that it
was not his intention to quit the Colony as therein specified.
He now for the
last time requests all those who have any Business to settle with him,
immediately to come and arrange the same, and thereby prevent the disagreeable
consequences which may ensue from further delay.

C. T. Tinne, first
Mr. Henery, - By
inserting the following lines you will oblige Britanicus.
With hair dishivel'd
and with tear dew'd cheeks
And spear revers'd
Britania - Neptune seeks,
And having found
him on his coral throne
Thus in sad
anguish makes her sorrows known;
O Father why hast
thou withdrawn thy smile
benignant from my white cliff'd Isle
Thy smile which
British breasts with ardour fir'd
Nations trembled and admir'd.
Thy aid O Neptune
to this Isle restore
Or Britain's glory
sinks to rise no more.
the Wave compelling God,
Britain has err'd
and she has felt the rod.
Why leave her
proper element the main
In tented fields
to waste her strength in vain?
The Sea is mine
and I'm Britania's friend,
But on the Land my
power's at an end
On me if she'll
depend for time to come
The Boon you ask
I'll send Britania home.

By the arrival
yesterday of three of the London Fleet under convoy of the Persian Sloop of
War, we are enabled to begin this day's duties with the pleasing opportunity of
congratulating the Public on the arrival of the Silver Money lately coined at
the Tower of London by His Majesty's permission, for the use and convenience of
the Inhabitants of these Colonies, as announced in His Excellency the
Governor's Proclamation of the 3d instant. Assured as we are that there is but
one wish, and one opinion, as to the benefits likely to result to the general
interest of every branch of trade and traffic through this mountain of
circulating Specie, if preserved within the Government, and allowed to
invigorate the sinews of trade by a fair uninterrupted circulation. It may
perhaps be allowed us to observe how much it were wished if Persons in
ostensible situations in the country and particularly the Merchants of
Stabroek, would enter into some regulations so as to co-operate with the acts
of Government and secure the advantages of this valuable importation of Coin as
well to themselves as to the whole of the Community. Some useful and public
spirited hints have been already offered to public consideration through the
medium of this Paper by J.B. who with much zeal and judgement recommends
"individual caution and strict association of Merchants &c." for
the purpose no doubt of detecting not only the depredations of capital
offenders, but to secure the circulation of the Coin from the views of those
who by hoarding or monopolizing Specie in preference to Paper currency thereby
defeats the intention of the Legislature, to the manifold injury of the Public,
and even without incurring any responsibility when detected.
For the names of
the Ships arrived yesterday see our ship list. The indefatigable, Alfred and
Fortune parted with the Fleet in the latitude of Madeira, and is supposed to
have touched at that Island under the protection of one of the Men of War.
They may be daily look'd for.
Passengers by the Ships arrived we notice the following - Mrs. Clifton, Doctor
Lloyd, H. Addison, and Ths. De Lisle Esqrs.
Early last Sunday
morning after a short but severe illness, died at his House in America-Street,
in the 48th Year of his age, Robert Younghusband, Esq. a Merchant of several
years standing in this Colony. In every relation of life he was endeared to
his acquaintances, not more by the integrity and manly firmness of his
character as a Merchant, than the urbanity of his manners, and the social and
correct [illegible] of his heart as a friend and a Gentleman. Of Mr. Younghusband
it may be truly said that few lived more esteemed and respected, or died more
universally regretted by a large circle of respectable friends as well as the
whole Community to whom he was so long known. The deceased has left a
disconsolate Widow, to whom he was only united a few days before his illness,
to deplore his loss.
and Cleared since our last.
