By His Excellency Henry William Bentinck, Esquire, Governor and Commander in Chief of the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo, Vice-Admiral of the same, President in all Courts, Colleges, &c. &c. &c.
[end columns]
WHEREAS it is become highly requisite that every precaution should be taken to prevent improper persons introducing themselves into this Colony, which, if the same were not timely and effectively checked, might be of great prejudice to individuals, and possibly tend to a general disquiet; it is therefore, after mature consideration, that I have resolved on the following regulations, in order to prevent occurrences of that nature, so subversive of good order:
All persons (except those in His Majesty's service) arriving at this Port, shall not be permitted to land until the Master of the ship or vessel in which they are embarked has reported his arrival to me, and also the names and descriptions of the passengers he may have on board, on which he will receive a Licence for their landing and immediately proceeding to the King's House; and if, on examination, I find that they be fit persons to be admitted, they will receive a Certificate from the Government-Secretary to that effect, which must be registered at the Fiscal's Office within twenty-four hours after their report to me; or, in default thereof, they will be apprehended, and dealt with as the exigency of the case may require.
And all persons whom these present doth, shall, or may, concern, are hereby enjoined to observe the regulations herein-contained, and conduct themselves accordingly.
Given under my Hand and Seal-at-Arms, at the King's House, Stabroek, this 12th Day of March, 1812, and in the 52d Year of His Majesty's Reign.
H. W. Bentinck.
By His Excellency's Command,
F. White,
Gov. Sec.

By His Excellency Henry William Bentinck, Esquire, Governor and Commander in Chief in and over the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo, and their Dependent Districts, Vice-Admiral, President in all Courts and Colleges, &c. - and the Honourable the COURT of POLICY of the Colonies aforesaid.
Unto all whom these Presents shall or may concern, Greeting, be it known:
THAT we have thought proper to enact, as an amendment to the existing laws on the subject of Public Roads and Bridges, and it is hereby enacted accordingly - that, in future, it shall lie in the option of every Proprietor or Attorney of Estates in these Colonies, to have the railings of the public bridges, on the estates belonging to them, or under their charge, either painted white, in oil-colour, or white-washed; provided only, that care be taken to keep the same at all times white - under the penalty of incurring the fine provided by the law in this case.
And, that no ignorance may be pretended of this our Ordinance, the same shall be published, affixed, and printed, for general information.
Thus resolved in the Ordinary Session of the Honourable Court of Policy aforesaid, held at the Court-House, in the town of Stabroek, Demerary, on the 30th of January, 1812, and published the 14th of March next thereunto following.

A Colonial Duty at the rate of Fifty Guilders per Pipe, containing 110 Gallons, and so in proportion for every larger and smaller quantity, on all Madeira or other Wine in Wood, - and also a Duty of One Guilder per dozen of all bottled Wine of every description and denomination to be imported in these Colonies; both which duties shall be Paid at the Office of Francis White, Esquire, Government-Secretary, (who has been specially appointed for the collection thereof on the part of the Colony) on pain of a Fine of Five Hundred Guilders to be forfeited and Paid to the Colony, for every offence, in case of any Wine of the aforesaid description being found to have been landed without the Colonial duty having first been Paid or Security for the same given to the said Secretary; and it is further provided in this behalf with the concurrence of His Excellency the Governor, that no Ships or Vessels, having imported Madeira or other Wine, either in wood or in bottles, shall be admitted to a final Clearance, unless, in addition to the other Colonial requisites, it shall also appear by the signature of the said Secretary on the Manifest of the Cargo of such Ship or Vessel, that such duty has been Paid, or Security given, for the same as beforestated.
