THE little place called Maria's Lodge, (without Negroes), is offered for sale.
This property adjoins Mr. Prins's Bathsheba's Lust, and contains 160 acres of land, more or less. The cultivation is about 60 acres, under Plantains and Coffee. The dwelling-house is spacious and elegant, and stands upon a brick wall 10 feet high, forming underneath large and commodious stores. A small coffee-loge, and kitchen of brick, with other useful out-buildings, are attached, comprising in the whole a most desirable residence for a genteel family. To a person wishful of possessing a good Stock-Farm, this offers advantages seldom to be met with; for, added to the ample support of food in plantains, and the finest grass for every kind of stock, it boasts the valuable supply of a constant stream of fresh water, in a small creek, running by the side-line.

The only arrivals we have to announce, since our last, are the Douglas, Capt. Evans, and the Spectator, Capt. Richardson, from London; the Ann, Capt. De Munnick, from Surinam.

The Packet did not sail until yesterday morning. His Excellency Governor Bentinck being a passenger, the vessels in the river saluted as she passed from the King's stelling.

By the arrival from Surinam, a gentleman of this colony, received a letter from his correspondent in that, which announced his reception, from North-America, of the Act of Congress, ordering an Embargo for ninety days.


Want of room in our last, preventing the insertion of the names attached to the Address to this gentleman, on his departure from Demerary, we have given them a place in this day's Gazette:

This day's Paper is rather barren of articles of domestic interest; but the contents of the London papers by the above-mentioned vessels are, however, of considerable importance -
[Transcriber's note: most European news not transcribed.]

In installing the Tribunal of Commerce at Amsterdam, on the 13th of February, we find that the President, among other things, in his address to the Prefect of the Department of the Zuyder Zee, expresses a hope that the Tribunal "may be able, by administering with strict justice and equity the existing laws, to fulfil the duties imposed upon us, and maintain, in the affairs of commerce, that good faith and equity which are indispensible to commercial prosperity, which raised our ancestors to so high a degree of reputation, and will be the firm basis of our future prosperity, when the moment shall have arrived, that the vast genius of our August Sovereign shall have re-established the liberty of the Seas, without which the commerce of these departments can never resume its activity, nor promise itself that success which rendered it during two centuries the nerve of the State and of this City."

Two American ships, laden with flour, have lately been carried into St. Lucar, by two French privateers of that place. Their cargoes were immediately condemned, and their crews put into confinement.

An American vessel, called the Congress, Captain Clark, from Baltimore, bound to London, has been taken, and sent into Cherbourg. This vessel sailed from America on the 4th of February, and had been been [sic] expected in the Thames for some time. A considerable amount had been insured upon her in London. This ship has been called an English ship in the Paris papers; but this trick will not do. This is another convincing proof that the Berlin and Milan decrees are still in force; and the attempt to palm her upon the public as an English vessel is another instance of the duplicity of the conduct of France towards America. Such attempts ought ever to be exposed in their true shape and complexion. This capture is a valuable one; and therefore they are more anxious to deceive the public.

For Liverpool. [heading]
[sailing ship icon] The Ship Douglas, William Evans, Master,
Will positively sail on or before the 1st of August. For Freight or Passage apply to
May 19. Douglas, Reid, & Co.
