And the Honourable Members,

The Hon. F. P. VAN BERCKEL, Fiscal.

(After Prayers.)
His Excellency the Acting-Governor, addressed the Court as follows:
"I should regret so frequently attracting your attention from your private concerns, were it not for the public good; to promote which, your conduct for the last nine months has proved to me your constant readiness to sacrifice your personal interest to the colonial advantage.
"At an extra meeting, I stated to you my anxiety for the exposed parts of the coast, to the eastward and westward, particularly in that description of warfare, which has been carried on here for six or seven weeks, and by which private individuals have suffered, and the colony involved in expence.
"To avert further mischievous consequences that might have ensued, by the capture of plantation boats, interruption of the trade, and other evils - I thought it proper to take every possible measure for a speedy communication. - The most expeditious in the first instance, is by signals along the coast, which have, to a certain degree, been already established, but will require further regulation, with the cheerful assistance of the gentlemen resident along shore. The expences can be but of trivial consideration, in competition with the public advantage to be derived, exclusive of the protection that may thereby be promptly afforded.
"A suggestion has been made to me, from a very respectable quarter, and communicated to the Honourable Court at a former meeting, which appears founded in humanity - I have therefore great pleasure in recommending it to you, Gentlemen, for mature deliberation, being convinced that such a cause, also apparently agreeable to local policy, will excite your warm and cordial interest.
"It is, Gentlemen, from a very respectable character and proprietor in these colonies, with regard to the execution-sales of estates, and with a view to ameliorate the condition of negro families, and unpleasant circumstances that may attend the disposal of them at vendue.
"I think, Gentlemen, I can best explain the sentiments and motives of the gentleman who wrote the letter (a member of another branch of the legislature), by submitting it to you, agreeable to his own statement and words; as also some salutary arrangements respecting the ferries, and other matters, recommended from the same source, part of which has been anticipated at your last meeting.
"I have the honour to intimate to you, Gentlemen, that having received His Royal Highness the Prince Regent's order, to place in office, as President of the Court of Criminal and Civil Justice, the Honourable Thomas Frankland - that gentleman was sworn in on Saturday to that important trust, reposed in him by his Sovereign.
"Upon being relieved, Gentlemen, from this arduous part of my former duties as Acting-Governor - feeling upon this occasion, as I hitherto have done, but one object in view, the public good, and advantage of the colony; at the same time conforming, to the best of my abilities, with the orders and intentions of His Royal Highness, whose gracious solicitude for the welfare of those dominions, has been in so many instances evinced.
"I congratulate you, Gentlemen, upon this salutary measure; being confident, that whoever may have the honour to be Governor of these territories, cannot have time, from other essential and indispensable avocations (whatever his personal assiduity and diligence may be), to attend to the minutia of law proceedings, in obtaining justice and equity for every individual.
"I have great pleasure, Gentlemen, in stating to you, that notwithstanding the accumulation of business, in consequence of the union of Essequebo, the perseverance and indefatigable attention of the Honourable Court of Criminal and Civil Justice, has heard and determined two hundred and seventy-four causes since April last; exclusive of four hundred and fifteen petitions and other law processes, during their non-session.
"I would be extremely concerned, Gentlemen, to suppose that this multiplicity of law-suits proceeded from a litigious spirit; it may be attributed to various reasons, some of which are probably ideal. I think it, however, my duty to suggest, that many disputes brought before a judicial tribunal, might be amicably arranged by arbitration; and should the difference of the parties be founded upon points of law, or intricacies that required professional assistance, I am confident the liberal principles and enlightened understandings of Barristers, and generally presumed the characteristic of good lawyers, will always prefer an adjustment in this way, in the place of overwhelming their clients with law expences through the public offices - which, in many instances, are ruinous to those unable to pay, and even injurious to the advocates, whose just demands frequently remain unpaid.
"Gentlemen - Reverting to the numerous causes that have been heard, I feel myself in common justice called upon to make known to you the assistance I received as President, from my Secretary, L. Van Rossum, Esq. who from his having previously acted for a considerable time, and the character I had received of him for honor and integrity, I thought it would conduce to the public benefit, to retain a gentleman of that description in so important an office - I have now the pleasure to say, that Mr. Van Rossum's experience in the legal routine and processes, with his assiduity and diligence, were highly beneficial to the public.
"I beg leave to propose to you, Gentlemen, providing the usual fund for what is commonly called the King's Chest - the provident disposal of which, as also the reduction in the colonial expenditure, shall be strictly and minutely attended to, as far as rests with the officer at the head of the civil administration, avoiding unnecessary extravagance; and, at the same time, keeping in view that liberality and generosity, for which Demerary has ever been so conspicuous."
His Excellency having concluded, the Court returned its warmest thanks for the communication; and then proceeded to the business of the session.
By Command,
Clerk to the Court of Policy.

THE Fiscals' Office will, for the present, continue to be held at the House of Mr. Martens, the Drossart.

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 in will also at a future period of 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, as refusing to exchange any old note that may remain out at any future period whatever.
