[right pointing hand icon] The publication of "A New-Resident's Hints for the Improvement of the Town of Stabroek," is postponed for the present.

The trial of the case "Guise versus the American brig Park," took place on Friday last, (according to a notification to that effect,) in the Vice-Admiralty Court of this Colony; but the sentence was not passed till yesterday. the pleadings were respectable on both sides; but we consider the summing-up of His Honor the Judge-Surrogate so truly excellent, that, having attained a copy, we shall present it to our readers in a future gazette.

By a reference to the first page of this paper, it will be seen that His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to appoint J. S. Masse, Esquire, to be Fiscal ad interim, of this colony, in consequence of the deeply lamented death of the Hon. J. Van den Paadevoort.
