To Let. [heading]
A Convenient House for a Family situate in Kingston, in an airy and Healthy situation: - For further particulars apply to the Printer.
Demerary, 30th June 1810.

Mr. Printer
I observe in your Paper an address to the Subscribers of the English Church or Chapel in Stabroek, by which it appears that their Funds have fallen short of their expectations, or at least have been unequal to carry their undertaking into effect.
I have not a doubt of the very good intentions of the Writer, and I trust if the difficulty has arisen from a too sanguine calculation of their ability, or from a want of economy or attention to a proper restriction of their expence to their means, it will be done away by better future Regulations. - But there are some points on which I must differ from your well-meaning Correspondent - he seems to approve of an application of a proportion of the Taxes to the Building a Dutch Church, but if it is a proper appropriation, why not an equal sum for an English one, in a Country where three fourths of the Population, and at least that proportion of those who pay the Taxes, are of the Country of the Sovereign, - English. It has been indeed whispered that in the time of the late Governor Nicholson the Promoter of the erection of St. George's Chapel decline, or as some say, rejected the offer of assistance from the Colony Chest, wishing to hold themselves independent of the Government.
I have no means of knowing that this was the fact, or if it was, of the motives that led to it; but on the first blush they seem to shew but little of Christian Humility on their part, and I can see no wise reason for their abstaining now from such application, if their situation calls for it. What your Correspondent means by the Dutch Church (the Calvinistical one I presume) being by the Capitulation of the established one in the Colony, I cannot conceive. That the Capitulation granted to the Capitulants the free exercise of their Religion, that it preferred to them the Funds of their Church, whatever they might be, free from confiscation, is most certain, but that it set up the Capitulants to command the Conquerors, and to consider and treat their Religion as one indulged only by the lenity of the Capitulants, is so monstrous a proposition that I am surprized any person should adopt it, much more one who has the word Britannicus appended to his signature.
Besides, which whom did the British treat, and to what Government were the Capitulants subject? - To the Batavian Republic. Without stopping to ask where that said Batavian Republic is to be found; is it not well remembered, and if Laicus Britannicus was then here, does he not know that the Farrago that was then so profusely banded about as the Regulations of that then new Batavian Constitution, there was an article that stated that there should be no predominant Religion but a general Toleration, on each Communion or Congregation providing for their own Ministers and the expences of their own Church. I have no intention of throwing any damp upon the zeal of those who are willing to support the undertaking, which is in every sense a most proper one, and I trust the crops will fully justify the Representatives of Proprietors coming forward with handsome Subscriptions but Laicus is a little in the general fashion of the Country by giving good reasons for expending the Crop before it is gathered. - At home they reason differently and say, now when I have realized thus much I can venture to apply such or such part of it to charitable purposes. We prudently do not wait for that time here to expend our Crops, least it should never arrive, and take care that our charities as well as our luxuries should precede our means.
Certainly if the heavy sums drawn by Takes here from the subjects, are fairly, honestly, and equally levied, and if they are applied with economy and Wisdom to the uses of the Public alone, and not to enriching Individuals under pretense of Public Service, they must be fully adequate to a respectable provision for the English Protestant Church of the Colony as well as for that of the Dutch Capitulants.

The Ship James, eleven weeks from Cork, arrived yesterday; and an American with Cattle on Thursday - they are the only arrival since our last, and they bring no News.

The Public will see that the communication of Laicus Britannicus given in our last has drawn forth a very able letter from Anglicanus, for whose information we state that the Government has appropriated f 15,000 in furtherance of the project to erect a Dutch Church.

Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last.
