Extract from the Minutes of the Proceedings of the Honorable Court of Criminal and Civil Justice, of the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo, held at the Court House, George-Town, Demerary, on Thursday the 5th of January, 1815.
"The Court having taken into consideration the serious inconvenience Accounting Parties are put to, in not having their books returned to them in time, particularly at the end of the year, which prevents them from closing their accounts at that period; and the Court having further taken into consideration, that they would be enabled to examine such accounts with more facility, if they were all laid upon the table at a certain fixed period - it was resolved to direct all Accounting-Parties, Curators, Sequestrators, Administrators, and all others, appointed by the Court, or under their controul [sic], to give in their Accounts, properly prepared and made up, with the Vouchers thereto belonging, for examination, on or before the 31st of July, of each year; when the Court, after referring them to the Sworn-Accountant of this Court, will immediately proceed, on the coming in of his Report, to examine and pass the same at their next session.
"And the Secretary is hereby directed to publish an Extract from the Minutes, of this Resolution; of which all parties interested therein, are desired to take due notice."

Anniversary of Her Majesty's Birth-Day. [heading]
On Wednesday last, pursuant to the Order of the day before, the George-Town Battalion, Demerary Militia, assembled at an early hour - preparatory to the usual ceremonial on such occasions.
At, or about eleven o'clock, they marched to the Parade in Cumingsburg, and formed immediately on the left of the 60th Regiment: - a field-piece of the respective corps, marking the extreme wings of the whole line.
At the usual period, His Excellency the Commander in Chief and Suit, made their appearance; and the business of the filed commenced under the immediate auspices of Colonel Codd: - Major Tulloh of the Militia, repeating the word to his own troops.
The inclemency of the weather however, so far prevailed on the considerate mind of the Commander in Chief, that he dispensed with every manoeuvre, not absolutely necessary; - first riding round the line - next receiving the present - then waiting the fue [sic] de-joye: - on the conclusion of which, he left the field: - followed soon after by both battalions.
At one o'clock, the vessels in the river, commencing with His Majesty's brig Chanticleer, saluted as usual - They had been dressed, in honour of the day, from early dawn, in all the pride of maritime magnificence. The Fort also paid its customary respects.
In the evening, cards of invitation having been sent to a considerable number, the Camp-house became the seat of an hospitality, every way worthy of the host, the occasion and the guests; - the latter, consisting of the heads of Departments, and the most distinguished of the other classes of the community. They sat down to an elegant dinner; - and afterward spent the evening in characteristic conviviality - intermixed with those loyal sentiments, which the day, the place, and the majority of the company, were particularly calculated to inspire.
In justice to the 60th Regiment, we must confess never to have seen more steadiness under arms or facility of movement: - circumstance, which speak much for the discipline of the corps, and reflects considerable honor on its Colonel-Commandant - whose unremitted attention is thereby recompenced, in the manner certainly most agreeable to an Officer. The Militia, also on that day, was truly respectable.
