Militia General Order. [heading]

His Majesty's Packet, Queen Charlotte, and the armed-brig Hawk, having returned into port this day, with the Cork fleet, which was exposed to the enemy's vessels upon these coasts:
Captain Kirkness, commanding, has reported the good conduct of the troops on board the two vessels, with the exception of three or four discontented individuals, dismissed and sent on shore; and who, with such disposition, should not have volunteered.
In consequence of the Captain's representation, His Excellency the Acting-Governor returns his warmest thanks to Brigade-Major Brandt, Captain King, and the Detachments under their command.
When Lieutenant-Colonel Otto, commanding the George-Town Militia, reported himself and corps, on the 4th instant, ready to embark as volunteers, to attack the enemy in the offing, it only corresponded with the conduct of that Loyal Body, who had acted in a similar manner on the 30th September, by chasing off the coast an insulting enemy.
His Majesty's Naval and Land Forces, when they discharge their duty faithfully, receive due glory and praise; and certainly the highest applause, and cordial thanks of every good subject in the colony, are merited by those who voluntarily relinquished their domestic comforts, and private self-interest, to embark upon an element which they were unaccustomed, for the purpose of combating an insolent foe, bidding defiance, and presuming they could plunder with impunity in sight of the British Flag.
The enemy having again found means, through some unaccountable channel, to elude the vigilance and promptitude of the inhabitants of Demerary, which has now been so conspicuous on two emergencies - His Excellency the Acting-Governor trusts they will still continue on the alert, and ready to oppose, either on sea or shore, unnatural enemies, the allies of a nation whose entire ambition appears to be that of tyrannizing and oppressing every civilized Government in the universe.
King's House, George-Town, 9th November, 1812.
By His Excellency's Command,
John Eyre,

MILITIA (after) ORDER. [heading]
November 9, 1812. [heading]

Since the foregoing Order His Excellency the Acting-Governor has, with deep regret, received Reports of the misconduct of certain individuals which will require investigation; particularly as one of them had on a former occasion, transgressed.
Misbehaviour on the part of an inconsiderate person, can never create any unfavorable impression of an honorable body of men, who came forward in the most gallant manner to offer their services, and which have produced the following good effect, as declared upon Oath, and from the most undoubted authority: - When His Majesty's Packet and Brig sailed, there were Privateers from America, of considerable force, upon these coasts; one, to the east-ward, had taken the Union brig from Guernsey, and the Tiger colony-boat of Berbice - the latter of which she released - with other small craft, as her object was the Cork fleet. About the same time, the Caledonia, commanded by Captain Thompson, had an action, on the west-ward coast, and beat off a large privateer.
On Saturday the 7th instant, Captain Kirkness, with the Packet and Brig, cruising off Berbice, where the enemy had been the day before, fell in with the fleet from Cork for Demerary, without any convoy, and saw the whole safe in, on the morning of the 8th instant, which would probably otherwise have become a prey to the enemy - who, it is certain, received intelligence of the former armament, and there is every reason to suppose upon the present occasion, timely notice has been obtained by them.
It is expected, that the Commandants of Militia, and Burgher Captains, will use the utmost vigilance and exertion to discover the emissary, and for which purpose One Hundred Pounds Sterling will be given to any person who will give such information as may lead to a conviction of an internal traitor or spy; who will be brought to that condign punishment established by the Laws of Nations and War, in such cases.
By His Excellency's Command,
John Eyre,

Arrived since our last - The Cork Fleet; consisting of the Pilot, Barton - the Thomas, Foster - the Fame, Williams - the Camilla, Gemmell - the Flora, Ravely - and the Trelawny. Neither of which, however, has brought later intelligence than the Caledonia.

LOCALITIES. [heading]

It will be found, from the above Militia Orders, that the Packet and Hawk brig, mentioned in our last to have sailed in quest of the Privateers, are returned.

The Chichester Packet, which left this River on the 3d of August, arrived at Falmouth on the 13th of September.

The Packet now in the river, will depart for England to-morrow.

By a reference to our first page, it will be seen that the Hon. J. Johnson, is appointed King's Receiver for the United Colonies.

[right pointing hand icon] We have been under the necessity of deferring the insertion of several Political Pieces, until a future paper.


LONDON. [heading]

Sept. 23. [heading]

Captain Tucker, of His Majesty's ship Cherub, arrived from the Leward [sic] Islands, has informed the Lord Commissioners of the Admiralty, that 42 of the fleet which sailed from St. Thomas's the 3d ult. under his protection, parted company at different times during the passage by making sail from the convoy - 'The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty have informed the Committee, that if Masters of vessels under convoy, continue inattentive to signals and instructions, and will voluntarily part company in the manner they at present so generally do, that his Majesty's Officers cannot be responsible for the safety of the Trade."
