The ESSEQUEBO & DEMERARY ROYAL
THE Gentlemen, appointed for carrying into effect the wishes of
the Inhabitants of these Colonies, in conveying the mark of their esteem to their
old and much respected Brother-Colonist, THOMAS CUMING, Esqr. (executed through
the friendly medium of ALEXANDER CAMPBELL, Esqr. of Glasgow,) have now the
honour of laying before them, that gentlemen's acknowledgements, received by
the present Packet.
1st January, 1813.
"I have been honored with your kind letter, accompanying the
very flattering address, signed by a great number of the respectable
inhabitants of the colonies of Essequebo, Demerary, and Berbice.
"To express to you, in adequate terms, what I felt on
receiving so honourable and unexpected a mark of the approbation of my Brother
Colonists, is a task which no language of mine can possibly do justice to.
Although I am far from laying claim to the merits, which their kind partiality
has ascribed to me, yet I can with truth assure you, that their remembrance of
me, however unmerited be their praise, affords the greatest felicity that could
have fallen to my lot, at this advanced period of my life.
"As far as it has been the wish of my friends in the Colonies
to shed a ray of comfort on my declining days, it has indeed been completely
fulfilled; for certainly, no good, which it is in the power of Fortune to
bestow, could have afforded me a higher gratification, than so affectionate a
farewell, from those among whom I passed so many years of my life.
"The elegant Piece of Plate, presented to me with the
address, I accept with grateful thanks.
"It now only remains with me to request you will receive for
yourselves, and all the Gentlemen in whose names you have addressed me, my
warmest wishes for your own, and their individual happiness, and for the
continued prosperity of the Colonies you inhabit; and to assure you that I
remain, with the greatest respect.
"Your most obedient humble servant.

COPY of a Letter, received this day by the Acting-Postmaster:-
H. WILLIAMS, Esq.
As I am positively assured, that Captain Wilson brought a Letter
from London to my address, and which he accordingly deposited in the
Post-Office, I have therefore, to request you will deliver it to the bearer,
otherwise I shall be under the necessity of addressing myself to His
Excellency, for the recovery of the same – having repeatedly requested
that my letters should not be delivered to my person without a written order
I am, Sir,
Your most obedient servant,
J. C. SCHULTZ.
H. Williams, Esq. Feb.
From the above positive charge, and from various applications for
letters said to have been delivered at this office, from the ships which
arrived on the 24th instant – the subscriber has reason to suppose the
letters missing, (if such letters were actually sent) have been brought by
Passengers, or kept by Captains, for personal delivery. But from whatever
motives such letters have not been regularly at the Post-Office, it is
necessary, for the character and responsibility of the Subscriber, acting for
the Postmaster, to declare publicly, that no letter, addressed to Mr. J. C.
Schultz, has been received by him, or at the Post-Office; and that no ground
for a charge or insinuation of that nature, can be made to affect him in his
official capacity. He also pledges himself to the complaining parties, to
enforce the penalties, according to the subjoined Abstract of an Act of
Parliament, and a Colonial Act – upon proof being given him, of any
person with-holding letters entrusted to their care; or taking up letters
belonging to others, without a proper authority.
Extract of a Clause of the 5th Geo. 3d, Chap. 25th, relative to
"It is therefore enacted, that no ship or vessel shall be
permitted to break bulk, or make any entry, in any particular port in the
British Dominions, until all letters or packets, brought by any master of any
such ship, or by any of his company, or by any passenger on board the same,
shall be delivered to the Postmaster-General, or his deputy, deputies, or
agents – under a penalty of twenty pounds for every offence, with cost of
Demerary Colonial Act, 11th February, 1809. [centered]
"Any Master of a Vessel, Passenger, or others, who shall neglect
to deliver the Letters he may be entrusted with, (open letters of introduction
excepted) to the Post-Office, immediately on his arrival, is liable to a fine
of f 25 for each letter."
Note – To Capt. Richardson of the Spectator, the
Acting-Postmaster returns thanks for the promptitude with which the letter-bag
was sent from that vessel.
IN order to obviate any future difficulty in collecting the Fees
of the Market, I have received orders from the Commissioners, not to allow any
animal to be slaughtered, without first receiving the usual fee; and in case of
default, the animal shall be liable to be taken away, and sent to the Colony
Hospital; and that no Hogs shall be slaughtered before five o'clock in the
morning, until further notice.

sinking, after a most severe action with a superior force, subsequent to the

belonging to the said vessel, have floated on shore between this River and
Mahaica - it is requested, that any papers or small articles picked up, may be

EARTHQUAKE AT JAMAICA. [centered]
Extract of a Letter received in London. [centered]
is so perturbed by the tremendous Earthquake that happened on the morning of
the 11th instant that I am unable to reply to your letters by this packet. I
will give you the best account of that most awful convulsion I can, but it is
impossible for me to describe to you what I felt at the time. It was just day
light, and I had at that moment got out of bed when the shock came on and the
walls of this immense pile of building began to move and crack in every
direction. I slept in the body of the house, and attempted to make my escape
out of it by the door of the room by which I generally entered, but the motion
of the roof was shaking down such vast quantities of stones from the top of the
wall, as prevented my approaching that door for a moment or two I stood in the
middle of the room observing the motion and cracking of the walls and roof,
expecting the whole would fall upon me and crush me to death; at that time the
boiling-house chimnies were shaken down, from which issued a large body of
fire, that appeared through the windows as if it came from the bowels of the earth,
and, if possible, terrified me the more. At length I made my escape through a
door that led to the yard, without any thing on but my shirt, and presently
appeared the Doctor and Millwright (he slept in the house) in the same state.
We stood for some time without regarding each other, expecting to see the house
levelled with the ground; and for a long time after the shock, we were afraid
to venture into the house for our clothes. I was never so terrified, and have
not had one night's sound sleep since. The mill was about, and the Negroes ran
out of the works most dreadfully terrified; and those going out to work were as
much frightened by the motion of the earth, and the rippling of the water in
the canal and Little Spanish River, which appeared as if large hail-stones were
falling into the water.
"This house is cracked in fifty places, but not so badly as
to be taken down. It is, however, a dangerous house to be in, in an earthquake,
and though I may stay in it by day, I shall never again sleep sound in it. You
perhaps are not aware what an immense building it is. - The body is 57 feet
long, and 24 feet wide, of solid stone; wall, 18 feet high from the floor, and
two feet thick; with one cross division wall of the same height and thickness,
and four flankers, 14 feet square, projecting East and West 10 feet, and North
and South 15 feet beyond the body wall, forming at each end a small piazza, of
10 feet wide, and 21 feet long, and in the front and back a piazza of 15 feet
wide and 39 feet long, making the extreme breadth 53 feet, and length 76 feet.
One flanker room is finished, the rest of the house is in a rough unfinished
state, the same as it was erected, nothing but the bare walls and roof without
plaster, lathing, or ceiling. The boiling-house chimnies are shaken down to the
offcet [sic], and the boiling and curing-house walls cracked in
several places, but will not require to be taken down. - The mill and
distil-houses are not much injured. All the springs between this and Golden
Grove were discoloured. The force of the earthquake appears to have been in
this quarter, between Annstown and Buff bay, and such a severe one has not been
felt since the year 1692. If it had been attended with another shock, or had
continued a few moments longer, I firmly believe not a building would have been
standing on your property. Some properties in this neighbourhood have suffered
very severely." Jamaica, Nov. 26.
BRITISH AND AMERICAN VESSELS. [centered]
To the Editor of the Courier. [centered]
SIR - In order to enable the Country to appreciate the heroism
with which our officers and seamen have defended themselves in recent actions
with our Trans-Atlantic descendents, I request your insertion of the following
Table of the comparative dimensions of the British and American ships: -
This is the larg-
est frigate we
have on the Am-
Average of 12
This is an extra-
74, built by Sir
W. Rule, 1798
Average of 12
Average of 13
By this table it will be seen, that these American frigates are
longer even than an English first rate, that they are larger and of nearly
equal tonnage with our modern larger seventy-fours, and of greater tonnage than
our old seventy-fours, and that they are longer, broader, and of greater
tonnage than any of our sixty-fours; and that they exceed in tonnage our
fifties, in proportion of nearly 8 to 2: and our 33 in the proportion of 7 to
4. Is not the term frigate most violently perverted when applied to such
vessels; As well might we call the Ville de Paris a fifty, or the Caledonia a
sixty-four; or as well might we call the one a jolly boat, and the other a
These frigates carry long 24-pounders on the main-deck, when even
the largest first rates in our service carry on the main-deck only long
eighteens. Their quarter-deck and fore-castle guns are 44lb. carronades; and no
vessel of any description in our navy carry on either of these decks a heavier
gun than a 32. Now the vast superiority a ship derives from heavy metal, was
pretty well illustrated by Sir H. Trollope's action last war, in which that
celebrated officer was able to beat off a French squadron, in consequence of
his ship (the Glatton) carrying carronades.
To all these
advantages, we must add the consideration of the number of their crews. The
complement of an English 74 is 500 men, but seldom is there on board, even on
the home-stations, more than 460 to 480, and of these generally about 30 are
foreigners, and about 80 are boys. The United States, in the recent engagement,
had a complement of 478 men; that is, twelve less than the nominal complement
of our 74s' and at least equal to the number than any 74 actually has on board.
But a consideration of by far greater consequence than the quantity of men is
their quality. From the extended state of the British navy, it is impracticable
to man our fleets with seamen. About 6-7th of every ship's company are landmen;
and thus, in a 74, there are seldom more than 70 hands that can be put upon the
fore-castle or rated Ab [sic]. Now the Americans, having but few national vessels, are able to man
their ships, not only entirely with sailors, but with picked choice sailors;
and they have been but too successful in enticing some of our ablest hands to
become their petty officers.
It must not, however, be imagined that, with equal force, we
should effect our conquests over the Americans so easily as we have been
accustomed to effect them over the French. At the beginning of last war, our
naval triumphs were often precarious, and always dearly purchased. It was not
until the seamen of the continent, by being so long blockaded in their ports,
had become disused to their element, that our victories were atchieved [sic]
with so much facility. It is now far otherwise with the American seamen, they
have been long in the habit of cruising and practising naval evolutions and
tactics, and one half of their crews are British sailors, and what is nearly as
much consequence, the other half have been bred up and formed in the British
London, 31st Dec. 1812. A Naval Officer.
The following Extract of a Letter, from a Gentleman of the first
respectability in Mahaica, we present our readers with considerable (though
melancholy) satisfaction; particularly as, on the score of information, it acts
as a complete introduction to what appears on the subject, from the King's House:
"We have all been much shocked at the capture of the Peacock,
and the melancholy circumstances attending it. I had the detail from four of
the crew, who escaped from her (by means of the small boat, hanging over her
stern, which was much shattered, and with difficulty kept afloat by them until
they were picked up by a colony-boat, after having been six or seven hours in
that situation) two hours after she had taken possession of by the American
sloop of war Hornet, of 20 guns, principally 32-pounders, and 175 men. The
action took place a little to windward of Mahaica, in five fathom water, and
commenced about ten minutes before five o'clock, on Wednesday evening last, and
in forty five minutes the Peacock was obliged to strike, being a perfect wreck.
About a quarter of an hour before she struck, Capt. Peake was in the act of
cheering his crew, and encouraging them to continue the unequal contest, when
he received a four and twenty pounder in his breast, and fell with a smile on
his countenance. The man from whom I received this account, was then at the
helm, not two yards from where the captain was standing, and sprang forward and
took him in his arms to carry him below, when he was knocked down by a splinter
- "Here is some of poor Capt. Peake's blood, (said he, pointing to his
trowsers) I was covered with it, but the salt water has almost washed it
out." No other Officer was killed. Early in the action, Mr. Lot fell -
"Poor Lot! (exclaimed the Captain) I did not think you would have been the
first." Mr. Lot was taken down to Dr. Whitaker, but returned to his
quarters before the action ceased, having merely been deprived of his senses
for a time. When these poor fellows made their escape, the wounded only had
been taken out of the vessel; and at that time, she had eight feet water in her
hold, and the American Lieutenant (whose name is O'Connor) had hailed his ship
to say, that the prize was sinking, and these lads conceived that all hands on
board the Peacock were in danger of going down in her, as she had been brought
to an anchor, and the Hornet had drifted a considerable distance from them, and
did not seem to take notice of the Lieutenant, when he hailed. They conjectured
that the Peacock had from 20 to 25 killed and badly wounded. The enemy only acknowledged
one of each, but they say, they do not believe that, as their fire was well
kept up, and the other did not send their boat to take possession, for twenty
minutes after the Peacock had struck. The plain and apparently sincere
testimony of these men, and the regret which they expressed for the Captain,
were both convincing and affecting. The spokesman, a respectable looking
sailor, said, that he had been fourteen years in His Majesty's service, and six
with Capt. Peake; and "Sir, (said he) a better man, or braver officer, or
better disciplined ship, never sailed out of England; every man exerted himself
to the utmost, but they were too heavy for us."
Since, however, the receipt of the above extract, the men alluded
to, have arrived in this town, and their account here of the regretted
disaster, does not vary in the least.
The Hon. J. S. Masse, it will be seen, is appointed President of
the Court of Justice, ad interim.
Alexander Simpson, Esq. is re-appointed Deputy Receiver, Register,
and Secretary of the Court of Justice.

The following is extracted from a London paper: - "The Lords
Commissioners of the Admiralty have been pleased to inform the Committee of
Lloyds, that in consequence of the Douglas, W. Evans, from Demerary to
Liverpool, having deserted the fleet under convoy of the Helena sloop of war,
and Captain Montressor having particularly mentioned the great neglect and
disobedience of the Masters to his instructions and orders, they have given
directions to their Proctor to prosecute Mr. Evans."
