\ \ TWEREAS we have taken under consideration,
that altho’ the right of Swmmary Execution has been
eranted by us tothe Vendue Master, for the time
being, of the Colony Berbice, (for the recovery of
Delis contracted at Public Sale), in order that the
Sellers of Goods at Public Venduc, may meet with
no delay trom the Vendue Office at the expiration of
the credit s(ipulated by them. Yet that the object
of this authorily tothe Vendae Master granted for
the advantige of the Public, has been in many m-
stances frustrated; several of our Luhabitants who
have sold goods at Public Sale, having sustained se-
rious inconvenience in their payments being procras-
tinated by the Vendue Master, beyond the limita
tion of the Credit engaged to be allowed by them.
We have therefore thought it expedient to make
further disposition on this head, by enacting and
granting, as we do hereby Enact and Grant, from
and afterthe day of the date of the Publication of
these presents, to the Sellers of Goods, at Public
Sale. within the Colony Berbice, the same 2i¢ht of

of the procceds of such Sales at Vendue as has been
heretofore ranted by usto the Verdue Master, tor

Public Vemlue, with this reserve however ;
Maat the enforcement of Payment by the Sellers,
avainst the Venduc Master, shall ouly take place Six
weeks after (he expiration of the credit, stipulated
at the day of Sale, aud under which the goods are
sold, and atter payment of the net proceeds ot the
coos $0 sold shall have been legally demanded from
the Vendue Master.
And should after ihe expiration of the credit un-
der which woods are exposed by the Seller, as also
aller the Paci dae Y wlowance Of six weeks for colicee-
tion, (he Vendue Master stil remain ia default Por-

sent a Petition to the Honorable Court of Civil Fus-
tice, or by thetrnon-sessious to His Excellency the

**It will be remembered that the American forces, sup-
posed to consist of 6 and 7000 men, under Gen. Dearbion,
made alandingeat Newark Ou Thursday morning, the 27th
May: the Britishafter a short contest, retreated to Forty,
Mile Creek about 55 iiles distant from Fort George, and

Heligoland, June 10.—The French, for the purpose of
punishing the citizens of Jlamburgh, have demanded acon.
tribution of 84 millions of frances, to be paid within four
weeks from the 12th instant, the one half in cash, the re-
mainder in bills payable at Paris. ‘Those who have been
most liberal in their subscriptions for the liberty of Gere
many are to pay the greater part of it. - Fight of the most
respectable inhabitants of Hamburgh, among whom are
Messrs. Godeliry, S. Schrader, and F. de Chapeaurouge,
have becn formed into a Commission to regulate the sums
to be individually paid.
It appears by an article from Altona, that all the pro-
visions which the Danish Government wished to send to
Norway have been seized by the English and Swides, and
collected in magazines close to the Swedish frontiess, in
revenge for which the Danes affect to mcnace Sweden with
an immediate invasion from Norway. This silly threat
was held out before the conclusion of the armistice in
Silesia, and was doubtless intended to deter the Crown
Prince from proceeding to co-operate with the allies.
We have no doubt that measures have already been (a-
ken for holding a Congress for the adjustment of the affairs
of the Continent, at which we still hope the Emperor of
Austria will act a part becoming. the high station he now
holds, His Imperial Majesty, we find, had set out from
Vienna for Bohemia, and was immediately to be followed
by his Minister for Foreign Affairs, Count Metternich,
a circumstance of itself sufficient to shew that negociation
is the object of his present journey.
