Notice is hereby given that at the Meeting which was called of the Proprietors of Cumingsburgh at Marsh's Coffee House this morning, only 14 or 15 Proprietors attending, they did not consider themselves authorized to enter into any measures relative to the Town; all the business that was transacted was, receiving the resignation of Mr. King, who is quitting the Colony; taking into the Accounts of the Commissaries, by which it appeared that the Town was in a much more flourishing state than it had heretofore ever been and requesting the present remaining Commissaries to continue to act untill they could call a more numerous meeting of Proprietors, which was proposed to be held on Friday the 15th June.
It is therefore hereby particularly and earnestly requested that the Proprietors in general will make a point of attending before 11 o'Clock on that day, (say Friday the 15th instant) in order that new Commissaries may be appointed, and other measures highly requisite and beneficial for the Town, be adapted.

Bridge-Town, Barbados May 22d, 1810.
A very unfortunate and lamentable accident occured yesterday to one of the passage boats between this town & Speight's, by which the lives of about twenty persons have been lost, as well as some considerable property. One of these boats, in luffing out of Speight's road, in a heavy squall, which prevailed yesterday noon all along the coast from hence, was suddenly taken aback, and almost instantly upset. Of upwards of thirty persons on board, only ten or twelve were saved - among the unfortunate sufferers there were only two white persons, and these females; a Miss Mercy Hurst, an elderly maiden lady; and a young lady; by the name of Cozier. These are the only particulars of this calamitous event that have yet come to our knowledge.
