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.
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.
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

Patrick's Day. [heading]
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."
