Criminal Justice of the Colony Berbice.
To all to whom these presents may or
shall come; Greeling! be it known:
\ \ HEREAS we have taken under consideration,
that altho’ the right of Szanmary Execution has been
granted by us tothe Vendue Master, for the time
being, of the Colony Berbice, (for the recovery of
Debts contracted at Public Sale), in order that the
Sellers of Goods at Public Vendue, may meet with
no delay {roan the Vendue Office at the expiration of
the credit stipulated by them. Yet that the object
of this authority tothe Vendue Master granted for
the advantage of the Public, has been in many in-
stances frustrated; several of our Inhabitants who
have sould goods at Public Sale, having’sustained se-
rious inconverfence in their payments betng procras-
tinated by the Vendue Master, beyond the Jimita
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
vranting, as we do hereby Enact and Grant, from
and after the day of the date of the Publication of
- these presents, to the Sellers of Goods, at_ Public
Sale, within the Colony Berbice, the same Right of
Summary Tvecuticn, for the recovery of the amount
of the proceeds gf such Sales at Vendue as has been
heretofore granted by usto the Vendue Master, for
the time being, against all) Purchasers of Goods at
Public Veodue, with this reserve however ;
That the enforcement of Payment by the Scilers,
against the Vendie Maoter, shall only take place Six
weeks after the expiration of the credil, stipulated
af the day of Sale. and ander which the goods are
soli, ana after payinent of the net proceeds of the
goods so sold shall have been legally demanded trom
the Veudue Master.
And should a‘ter the expiration of the credit un-
der which goods are ex; osed by the Seller, as also
alter the further atlowaace of six weeks for collec-
tion, the Vendue Master still remain in default Por-
ty cig in hours after a leonl demand for payment shall
have been made; the Seller in order to profit of this
present enactinent in their favor may proceed to pre-
sent a Petition to the Honorable Court of Civil dus-
tice, or by their non-sessions to His Excellency the
Goveraor as President of the said Court, in order to
elleet a recovery of what is due him or them, by
Summary Execution; and on his Excellency the
Governor, or the Hon, Court granting the Prayer ot
the Petition, the Petitioner may proceed to the en-
foreement of the fiat, thro’ the Deurwaarder, aticr
due Sommation and Renovation.
And in order that no ignorance may be pretended,
these presents shall be published, printed and posted
up as Customary,
hus enacted in our Assembly, held at the Court
House, New Amsterdam, Berbice, this 15th day of

selves unto us by Memorial, representing the neces-
sity of establishing a fund by Annual Contribution,
from each and every Proprietor of Land, within the
said ‘Town, in proportion to the quantity of Land pos-
sessed by him, her, or them, for the purpose of im-
proying the Public Dams, Roads, Bridges, and Drain-
View original age, Ol the said ‘Lown, at present in a total state ot
Neglect and Decay, as also for the future preserva-
tion of the Town by maintaining and keeping up the

An order has lately been issued bythe War Office. per-
mitting the Fife Militia now at Chatham, and all the other
regimeuts of Scotch Militia, to volunteer into the 49th
regiments of the linc, now serving in Canada; on conditi-
on, as is to be stated in their attestations, that each vo-
lunteer shall be discharged at the expiration of six months
aficr a general peace, and be allotted a certain quantity
of land inproportion to his rank.
On the Ist of June, the Officers and men, quartered at
Radipole Barracks, were gratified in seeing a brother
soldier rewarded. Serjeant William Butler, of the 12th
Light Dragoons.—AIl the Non Commissioned Officers of
that Regiment were ordered (o attend the Mess-room, after
their Officers’ dinner, when Capt. Cole, of the Regiment,
in the presence of the Field Officers and men belonging to
the garrison, presented unto Serjeant Wm. Butler a silver
cup, which the Officers had voted to him as atoken of
their regard for bis goud services, as a man and a soldier,
for 48 years in that Regiment. Capt. Cole’s address in
presenting the same, was such as to animate the young
soldier, and to inspire those of more mature age to follow
the example of the old veteran whom he was about to
reward; the same was received with every dezree of dix-
nity and respect becoming the soldicr., When the old
Warrior received the emblem of houour, his feelings may
be better imagined than described. ‘The Band struck up
‘Britons strike home,’ and they marched to the old veter-
au’s room in military order, waore the enp was filled with
Claret, and the evening spent with the gteatest: order and
conviviality, atthe expence of the Officers of the garrison,
during which the old soldive dauced several burupipes, in
the 74th year of his age.
