IN DEMERARY. [heading]

On Friday the 1st of May ensuing, will be sold by Public Vendue, for immediate payment, by Order of John Evans, q.q. Solomon van Thol, on the premises - The Plantation Calcutta, situated in Abary, betwixt the Recess and Catharine estates, containing 500 acres of land (more or less). There are from 90 to 100 acres planted in Cotton, and from 20 to 30 acres in Plantains; with all the buildings thereon, comprising a dwelling-house, 36 feet by 18, and 8 feet gallery; a logie, 36 feet by 18, and 8 feet gallery; a gin-house, negro-houses, &c. together with fifteen negro men and one woman.

Not having had any arrival since Saturday, and, of course, being without intelligence of more importance - our readers will find most of the subsequent columns of this day's publication, occupied by the detail of a Trial of High Treason, which has lately taken place in England; and the Particulars we promised in our Paper of the 7th instant, of the lamented Fall of Valencia in Spain.

Shipping Intelligence. - The Opossum brig-of-war, left this River yesterday, for Surinam.

It is with deep concern we announce the death of G. A. F. Van Kinschot, Esquire - for he was not only a gentleman in manners, but the amiable qualities of his heart certainly conferred as much honour on human nature, as his talent would have done, on the profession he had lately engaged in! The afflictive event thus mentioned, took place on Sunday last. Mr. Kinschot was Provost-Marshal of the First Battalion of the Brigade of Demerary Militia; and, for some time, a Marshal of the Court of Justice in this colony - a situation, however, he resigned, in consequence of being admitted in the Practice of the Law.
