THE Committee for Financial Purposes, give notice that the supply of larger Notes yet received being exhausted, attendance will be given on Tuesday next the 19th instant, from nine till two o'clock, at the house of Mr. JOSEPH BEETE, jun. in Columbia-District, for the exchange of those of ONE and TWO JOES only.
The Committee are in hourly expectation of the arrival of the rest of the Notes from England, which have been delayed beyond their calculation. Due notice will be given, as soon as they can be prepared, of the time for exchanging all those remaining, as it will also at a future period of the time, when the old Notes will no longer be considered as a tender. - But though it is on many accounts the wish of the Committee to withdraw the old notes from circulation, as soon as can be done with perfect convenience to the public, it is never the intention of Government to take advantage of the negligence or ignorance of any one, by refusing to exchange any old note that may remain out at any future period whatever.

Having been favoured with London Papers to the 11th ultimo, we have taken the liberty of omitting several advertisements, for the purpose of giving publicity to two very important British documents.


Nov. 30. – The Prince Regent this day proceeded in great state from St. James's to the House of Lords. . . . Being seated on the Throne, and the Commons in attendance, he delivered the following Speech:
"My Lords and Gentlemen,
[Transcriber's note: European items not transcribed]
"The declaration of War by the Government of the United States of America was made under circumstances which might have afforded a reasonable expectation that the amicable relations between the two nations would not long be interrupted. It is with sincere regret that I am obliged to acquaint you, that the conduct and pretensions of that Government have hitherto prevented the conclusion of any pacific arrangement. Their measures of hostility have been principally directed against the adjoining British Provinces, and every effort has been made to seduce the inhabitants of them from their allegiance to his Majesty. The proofs, however, which I have received of loyalty and attachment from his Majesty's subjects in North America are highly satisfactory. The attempts of the enemy to invade Upper Canada have not only proved abortive, but by the judicious arrangements of the Governor-General, and by the skill and decision with which the military operations have been conducted, the forces of the enemy assembled for that purpose in one quarter have been completely defeated. My best efforts are not wanting for the restoration of the relations of peace and amity between the two countries; but until this object can be attained without sacrificing the maritime rights of Great Britain, I shall rely upon your cordial support in a vigorous prosecution of the war."


His Excellency the Governor of Berbice, landed here yesterday from the Fanny - which brig received him from the Coquette, sloop of war, for that purpose. He was immediately conducted to the King's House, where he was warmly congratulated by Governor Carmichael, on his safe return; and where a party of the most Distinguished Characters in the Colony, assembled in the evening.

The following extract of a London Paper, will doubtless be read with universal regret. It intimates the death of him who, in 1803, swayed the colonial sceptre of Demerary, to the unanimous approbation of those he governed: - "Letters mention the death of General Andrew Ross, Aid-de-Camp to the King, who died at Carthagena, greatly lamented."

Marsh's Assembly-Rooms, last night, were as crowded by Beauty and Fashion, as could possibly be expected, when the previous unfavourableness of the weather is duly considered. The dance commenced at the usual time, and continued to an early hour this morning.

The Cotton Planter will hear with pleasure, that several licences for several ports of France, have been granted by the Government, for the importation of that commodity - and the Sugar-Planter we also congratulate, on the circumstance of several Public Bodies in England, being about to petition Parliament, for the continued prohibition of distillation, from grain.

The homeward-bound Fleet, under Convoy of the Peacock, sails to-morrow - in consists of the Fame, Thomas, Kingsmill, Caledonia, Camilla, Herald, Hawk, Pilot, Trelawney, Albion, Granger, Ramoncita, Isabella, Nereus, and Diana, from this river, and Speculator, from Berbice.

The Passengers in the Packet were, The Hon. Thomas Frankland, President of the Court of Justice, J. C. McLeod, and C. D. l'Escaille, Esqrs.

The vessel which came in on Saturday, with the Thomas, instead of a Sloop of War, proved to be the brig Alexis, from Newfoundland.

The Packet sails on Thursday.

For London.


Will sail with the First Convoy. For Freight or Passage apply to the Master on board, to G. ANGLE, or
January 18. W. F. DOBBRAUSKI.
