New-town, 20th March 1810.
The Commissaries of this District beg leave to acquaint its Inhabitants of their wish to hold a Public Meeting on Friday next at Marsh's Hotel, and to request the favor of their attendance on that day at Ten o'clock, to enter into measures to prevent the misfortune of having any of the Lots in the District taken under Execution, which they are very apprehensive will be shortly the case, if not timely prevented: - Mr. Daly being extremely urgent for his Money.
They have paid on Account Seven Thousand and odd Guilders, but there is yet a considerable balance due; and as several inhabitants refuse to pay their quota, and seem to consider the late assessment of 29th January, altho' so willingly entered into and paid by a very great majority, as an improper encroachment upon their property, the Commissaries are desirous of having the subject debated over again. They also wish to give notice, that it will be necessary to lay an additional small tax on each Lot, the one provided for the occasion not answering this claim which is greater than was calculated upon.
At this Meeting the names of those who shall have then refused to contribute their share of the general burthen will be given up, that the rest of the Inhabitants may see, who those unreasonable Member of Society are, that thus shamefully withhold their aid in a time of distress - the Tax being meant for the good of the whole. That the Inhabitants are not a little disgusted by these Taxes is not improbable; but the Commissaries cannot help it, they have not occasioned them.

Now Landing from the Brig Abeona, from Portland N.A. and for Sale by the Subscriber for Immediate payment: -
[first column]
Boards, Plank and scantling
R. O. Staves,
W. O. do.
Wood hoops,

St. Patrick's Day. [heading]
At the Union Coffee House last Saturday evening a select Party of the Sons of St. Patrick gave an elegant Ball and Supper to a very brilliant assemblage of fashionables, in honor of the anniversary of their [illegible]telar Saint. Amongst the company present on this splendid and highly patriotic occasion, we will only mention His Excellency the Governor and suite, the Members of the Honble. Courts of Policy and Justice, the Officers of the Army and Navy, heads of Civil Departments, some of the principal Merchants in Stabroek, and several other Gentlemen of fortune and consequence in the Colony. The following is the most approved of two accounts which have reached us of this grand divertisment: - "About eight o'clock in the evening the Union Coffee House exhibited on all sides from without, a very beautiful, and from the shrubbery in front, certainly a very picturesque spectacle of variegated lights, while the arrangements made in the apartments within claimed still more admiration, particularly the Ball-room, which besides a multiplicity of small chrystal glass lamps tastefully arrayed, it was over and above lighted with four superb chandeliers suspended from the roof or dome at convenient distances and giving a powerful effect to the dazzling splendour of the whole. The company being nearly assembled at nine o'clock, the Dancing soon after commenced to the music of the Band of the Royals, and continued with much harmony and vivacity until one, when the company retired to a spacious saloon, where the table made in the form of an inverted u was covered with all the delicacies of the season. Toward the top of the room sat His Excellency the Governor at the head of the table, near which there was a large transparent painting of the Irish Harp with the motto "Quis Separabis" skillfully inscribed within an appropriate device in the upper and lower corners, by the ingenious artist who executed the Drop-Scene at the Theatre, giving a view of the ruins of Palmyra &c and which has been so generally admired by the lovers of the fine arts. A number of loyal and appropriate toasts and sentiments having been drank and given and the company refreshed on this happy occasion. - Each lovely Belle led by her gallant Beau returned once more to the Ball room and resumed the amusement of Dancing, which was kept up till near gun-fire, when the company retired highly pleased with their entertainment."
