CLEARED. - None.

The trial of Alex. Cahill, surgeon, of the 2d battalion of the 25th regiment of Foot, charged with the murder of Captain Hugh Blair Rutherford, of the same regiment, came on a few days since, at Edinburgh, before the High Court of Justiciary. It appeared, that in consequence of a dispute which had taken place, relative to taking newspapers out of the mess-room, Capt. Rutherford sent a challenge to Mr. Cahill. The parties met, and after the first fire, by signal, without effect, Captain R's second proposed to Mr. C. to apologise, which he declined, but added, he would quit his ground and shake hands with the Captain – this was rejected. He, however, called out to load again, which being told Mr. Cahill, he said he would receive the Captains [sic – no apostrophe] fire but not return it. Captain Rutherford then fell, and was conveyed to the barracks, where he shortly after expired. Mr. Cahill made his escape, but afterwards voluntarily surrendered himself to take his trial. Several witnesses gave him an excellent character, and represented him as a quiet and inoffensive man. The Jury returned a verdict of not Guilty, with the exception of two dissentient voices.


In compliance with the wishes of our numerous friends, a LETTER-BOX is placed at the office-window. - All Communications must be addressed "To the Editor of the Royal Gazette."

We assure an ENQUIRER, that "The Sketch of the State of Society in Demerary," was not suppressed by Authority - nor could it be; in as much as it never was presented for its perusal: we, being, at least in our own opinions, sufficiently capable of judging, not only if an article is worthy of insertion, but if it would be proper to publish it.
