the Board having received and examined the Returns of the Appraisements of the various Districts, and having taken into consideration the various objects that called for attention and improvement in the said town, and having also read several Tenders made for the purpose of repairing and weeding the roads, cleaning the trenches, and performing whatever work was necessary for the preservation of health, and for the ease and comfort of the inhabitants --
It was unanimously resolved - That a tax of one per cent. on the appraised value of the lots and buildings, according to the schedule given in, be levied for the present year; which they trust will be sufficient to meet the necessary expences:
That the above tax be paid in to J. M. Spooner, Esquire, Receiver, on or before the 1st day of January next, on pain of summary execution on the defaulters, as authorised by His Excellency the Governor, and the Honourable Court of Policy.
The Board having observed, that some of the Districts are still in arrears for their former taxes, and that debts are due to individuals in consequence, do request Mr. Spooner to use every diligence to collect the same immediately.
The Board beg leave to return their sincere thanks to the Gentlemen who made the different appraisements, for the trouble they have taken on that occasion.
By Order of the Board,
H. S. Thomas, Clerk.

To all whom it may, or may not Concern. [heading]
AS an advertisement made its appearance in the Royal Gazette, under date of the 25th of August last, where my Husband Mr. Robert Powell Conway's name was unjustly mentioned; I do hereby counteract the same by making it null and void; it being done more from passion and want of thought, than any thing else, never having the least cause to mention his name in so public a manner; and that he is truly authorised to sign any papers, documents, &c. and to act in all and every manner for me, and that whatever he will do in future, will be as valid as if done by
Susanna Conway.
George-Town, 26th Sept. 1812.

B. Hebbelinck,
Acting-Government Secretary.

The only British arrival since our last, is the Kingsmill from Liverpool, via Madeira; but, we believe, that her solitary entrance will not be much regretted, when our readers become acquainted with the various and important intelligence she is the bearer of.
