Demerary, 5th July 1810.
Mr. Printer,
Several letters have appeared within these few days in the Public Papers relative to the English Church, which have called forth much of the general attention; and in consequence an opinion has gone abroad of considerable sums being still due to the Workmen employed in this Building! But such a statement of these claims, as I have seen in the hands of the Treasurer, if made Public, would at once prove the distresses of the Committee are much misrepresented, and that they are not by any means of the magnitude they are perhaps to generally believed to be. The amount actually due (about Eight Thousand Guilders,) is entirely owing to a misstatement given in at the Meeting held the 20th December last, as on that day the Gentlemen Subscribers, who were assembled together, came to a determination to fix a Quit-Rent on the Pews at such a sum, as would more than cover the amount of the outstanding Debts laid before them this of course rendered it perfectly unnecessary to think of making any application to Government for assistance.
The advertisement in the Public Papers, "for all Persons who had claims against the Church to give them in to the newly appointed Treasurer," soon proved this statement of the former Agent extremely erroneous! - there has since, it appears, been paid double the amount given in as outstanding at the above Meeting, and the Committee have yet claims to satisfy of about Eight Thousand Guilders. Nevertheless, I believe, nothing has been further from the idea of the Committee, than to evince such a temper, as is endeavoured to be ascribed to them, "as that they had rejected all thoughts of making any application to the Governor and Court for assistance. Nothing disrespectful at least, I am sure, in their ernestness to meet if possible the expence of this Sacred Building without application to Government, was ever discovered or intended; for, the amount of the Subscription being deemed fully adequate, it was generally observed, that it was unnecessary to make such an application. And if their busy, persevering Agent, thro' whose activity the Church was begun and completed, and to whom we are most certainly much indebted, had been but a little more correct in the statement which he laid before the meeting in December not a shilling, I believe, would have been owing at this day, as it would have been an easy matter at that moment to have prevailed upon the Gentlemen present to have given some small additional Subscription, and the Quit-Rent could have been fixed at double or triple what it was; the Treasurer would thus have been able to pay off every thing by the 25th March, according to his advertisement.
Instead therefore of endeavouring to clog the good will of the Inhabitants with painful insinuations on points so very disputable, which can never work any good effect, while the friends of the Church really suffer by such conduct, let every one of us come to a resolution on our parts to assist the Treasurer with some small additional aid - most of us, I feel persuaded, will rather acquiese in this, than in a course of argument, which only produces murmuring, and is attended with no kind of advantage either to one party or the other!
I am, Sir,
Your most Obedt. Servt.
An Englishman.

On Tuesday, after our Paper was put to Press, the Ship Friendship arrived from London; she left Gravesand on the 6th of May. - During the last three days the Ceres from Liverpool, the John from Glasgow, and the Ann from Newfoundland, have also arrived - to these we may add the Argus Schooner, from Guadeloupe, (she touched at Barbados and remained there about two hours, she did not bring any Letters or Papers,) and two American Vessels. - But, notwithstanding this long list of arrivals, we are, as to News, in precisely the same situation as when our last was published.

We take leave to inform "Anglicanus" that a paper has been published signed "A Dutchman," abusing him and ourselves; - to be even abused, in such company, is highly flattering, and we feel quite delighted at having our productions designated "stuff" and "nonsense," by one who sneers at the admirable style, denies the powerful logic, and detests the pure principles of "Anglicanus." We are convinced, however, that "Anglicanus" might have written, until he had worn his pen to a stump, on Church matters without exciting the spleen of his angry antagonist had he not pen'd that grating, gravelly, paragraph at the conclusion of his letter - there lies the never-to-be-forgotten or forgiven, crime of our Correspondent.
Until the angry "Dutchman" adopts the tone of "Anglicanus," that is, a tone of suavity, and until he condescends to write English, we trust he will remain disregarded by our Correspondent, who would refute him as easily as he vents his clumsy abuses; and as to his Prophecy of England, our beloved Country, when Cromwell was Protector, was it not a great, and independant nation, and in spite of the irrascible but loyal "Dutchman" it never will become a wretched dependant, existing by the mere sufferance of the Tyrant of France!

Died. - On Thursday last, Mr. John McRobb, School-Master.
