They therefore earnestly request that all obstacles may be removed from the draining trenches; - this request is addressed to the Inhabitants in the front Districts as far as No. 105, (The Districts aback having long ago removed such obstacles,) but particularly in that district from No. 57 to No. 98, where there is scarcely a House that has not a Necessary, or rails across the draining trench; - they must be aware that this is directly contrary to the Original Regulations of the Town, and numberless complaints having been made, cannot any longer be permitted - they therefore particularly request that the Inhabitants in that District will be kind enough to cause all such obstacles to be removed within One Week from the date of this notice, otherwise they will be under the unpleasant necessity of ordering them to be removed at the expence of the Proprietor of the Lot.

The Ship Sibella, and Sloop First Attempt, arrived yesterday from Barbados, but bring no particular news.

By the Ship Braganza, which arrived on Sunday last, in 44 days from Liverpool, London Papers have been received to the 1st ult. with a sight of which we have been favoured. The following are the only articles of importance in them: -

On Tuesday last the Theatre was opened, but the Entertainments were to wretched to attract criticism. On Friday the Theatre was opened the second time in the week - owing, however, to some mismanagement there was not any Performance.
We regret much to see that the Company (notwithstanding they sometimes expose us to such disappointments as the above), is about to be dispersed. - The Theatre will lose all the actresses and two of the best actors. This loss will be sustained as soon as the benefits have taken place, which commence to night [sic]; we trust Mr. Gard will have a good House - and on Friday next, which is Mr. Burke's night, we hope he will experience the public favour in its fullest extent. - We say thus much in justice to his merits, which are of such varied kinds that to neglect them would be to do a negative injury to Genius.
