WHEREAS His Royal Highness the Prince Regent has commanded (as already notified) a Union of the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo, I have judged it expedient, as a primary measure, to dissolve the Courts of Justice for those Colonies, and to organize the Kiezers, by calling on the assistance of the Senior Members of each College to form one Court of Justice for the United Colony, which Court being duly summoned will meet on Monday next, the 4th of May, for the dispatch of public business.
Given under my Hand and Seal-at-Arms, at the King's House, this 29th Day of April, 1812, and in the 52d Year of His Majesty's Reign.
H. L. Carmichael.
By Command,
Henry St. Hill,

We have had no arrival since Tuesday, but the following Vessels have cleared at the Custom-House: - the Ariadne, for Glasgow, the Lady Sherbrooke, for Halifax, North-America, and the Phoenix, for Barbados.

That so important an occurrence, as the formation of a New Court of Justice for these new United Colonies, should have excited a considerable interest in the inhabitants, (being, as they are, emanations from most of the different sections of the world,) will not, we believe, excite the least surprise; but, that the choice of Members, which His Excellency the Governor has made, should have given such universal satisfaction, is, perhaps, an happier result than even himself anticipated. They are, in fact, chiefly selected, as the Proclamation in our first page declares, from the Seniors of the College of Keizers; and, certainly, the Scales of Justice could not have been placed in more correct hands than those of the following Gentlemen:-
[first column]
A. C. Boode,
John Wilson,
John Johnston,
Thomas Naghten,
[second column]
David King,
Thomas Mewburn,
Baron Van Grovestein,
And William Austin,
