WILERTAS Representation has heen made to us
of the excessive hardship sustained by many indtvi-
duals, within this Government who are deprived of
thet e vices of their slives, on their being surrender-
ed to dustice and capifally punished for their crimes,
not only by the loss of such slaves without any re-
muneration, but from being obliged to defray the
expences of their prosecution and conviction ; and
whereas we have taken into our consideration, that it
is both ecuitable and conducive to the public evod
(hat some compensation should in future be afforded
to such Fababitants of this colony, asimay be deprived
of the service’s of any slaves, tn conscquence of the
Jaiter betng sentenced to death, bantshment or con-
finement for life, on the pubic works or (his colony.

hereby enacted accordingly: That from and after
the day of the date of these presents, every Planter
or other Inhabitant, who may in future be deprived
of any of his or her slaves, from their being sentenc-
ed by us to capifal punishment, banishment for life,
on the public works of this colony » shall be entitled
to recetve from the colental funds, as a compensation
for such loss, a sum equal to the value, to be put on
such slave or shaves, by appraisers to be ap patted
by us, provided always, thatsuch appraisement shall
inno instance exceed the sum of twelve hundred euil-
ders fora ficld working neeree, and fifteen hundred
fora driver or head neeroe or tradesman,
And lastly we do enact as itts hereby enacted, that
the expences of prosecution and conviction be deft: Vy- the cost of the colony, and not af that of the
individual :—which conpon ou aad costs of pro-
secution shall nevertheless not be made hy the colony,

WHIEREAS it has been duly represented to me, thata
considerable number of the coloured ead black Population
of this colony, claiming exemption from Slavery, have clan.
destinely introduced themselves as Free, which aot onl]
tends to the gencral discredit of the respectable part of
that class; but as several of them have no apparent means
of subsistance, it is to be feared they have recourse to
secret illicit practices for a livelihood, which if not time.
ly restrained, may in the end be subversive of good order,
{tts thercfore, that £ have decmed it expedient to make,
and do herchy declare, the following Provisions :
SSA Tl and every one of the colored or black Inhabitants
within this Settlement, claiming exemption from Slavery,
shall, without delay, and at the farthest, within one
month, from the date hereof, exhibit or cause to be dul
exhibited unto liis Ilonor the Fiscal, such proof of their
Frecdom as they may respectively be in possesion of able
to procure, or refer to.
**And further, in case any one of the aforesaid coloured
or black Imhabiants, remain in default, or omit to comply
with the aforesaid Order, Ilis Honor the Fiscal is directed
to cause him, her or them to be apprehended and lodged int
the colony Gaol, there to remain until my further Order,
with respect to them, as the exigency of their respective
characters or cases may seem to require.”’ e
And in order that no plea, or excuse of ignorance
may be pretended of these presents, the same to ‘be pub.

By the arrival of the Duke of Montrose Packet, with
the December Mail, we come in possession of London
Papors to the \st Jan.—Eetracts from which, as Jar as
time has allowed us, we present vur Readers.—From the
‘ueral feature of those papers, Peace, which we so ar-|
dently hailed and expected, appears by no means so near
as the successess of the Allies, of our armies in Spain,
endkthe emancipation of Holland, led us lo belicve.
We obscrce that overtures have been made by the Al.
bies to the French, but we have in vuin sought for the ac-
quiescence of the British Cabinet in these preliminarics.
rom a Morning Paper of the \si San, we have extract.
ed what are slated to be the Propositions of the Allies—
@hich, we are weld assured, will never be acceded to by
England, who would thereby not allone sa rifice the cause
ef the Dutch People, in which she so energetically em-
barked, but by allowing the Napoleon Jamily to remain
an possession of Holland and Maly, deprive us of all se-
eurity from the insatiable designs of an intriguing and
reval power,

that a vessel of War will call off the Kiver of Berbice, on
the days of the Full Moon in these months, for the pur-
pose of protecting the ships while compleating their lading
and taking them to Grenada, from whence they are to
proceed with the trade ofthat Estland for the place of gene-
ral rendezvous,
Iimaking this communication, will your TI:xcellency be
pleased also to acquaint the Planters and Merchants of
Berbice, that in consequence of arrangements for the pro-
teclion of the homeward bound Fleets fron: the Leeward
Islands, it will be out of my power to defer the periods
established for their departure from thence, and that the

Jun. 1.—To this hour it is not ascertained to which of
(he terms olicred ty Povaparte, the answer, about which
there has been so much cont.oversy, applies. We believe
the public have not been distinctly appiiscd, that on the
17th ult. the Atlies Jid, on issuing the declaration so wee
morable for its moderate and pacilic tende icy, offer him,
for the second time, positive teems. Kumour says that
these tories were ollereds wathout consultation with the
British Government; and indeed, if what is reported be
truc, they would bear internal evidence of boing offered
without reference to our cabinet, for the eccount is,
That they offered the Rhine as the boundary of France ;
That the United States of Holland should be erected in
fo an independent kingdom, of which Louis Bouaparte
should be Sovereign 5
Phat Murat should give up Naples and be indemnified
by a Government composed of the aucient Dishopricks on
the Rhine ;
That Ltaly should be portioned out into various dis-
tricts for Nusene Beauhartois, the Archduke Ierancis, Xe.
and that the Pope and the King of Naples should reine

to have au indenmity, &e.
This is the outhne of the proposal said to be made to
Donaparte from Mrankfort, tw odaysafter the first sy mp.
toms of the Revorution had manifested themselves in fol.
land, and actually after the cry of Orange Boven was
heardin the streets of Amsterdam. Are these the terms to
which Gonaparte says he has adhered? Are these the
terms to a Congress for the execution of which, he Says,
some difficulttes have occurred 2—Therc is at least a degree
of probability m the supposition (hat there is trath in this
report, for it would reconcile all the occurrences. These
are terms to which, no doubt, Bonaparte would gladly
adhere, but they are not terms that the Allies can now
execute, since the Dutch have spoken out and chosen for
themselves. ‘This would also account for the Journey of
Lord Castlereagh, as it is obviously the desire of our Ca.
binet to second the wishes of the Dutch people for the res-
oration of the House of Orange, though it would not, in
our minds, be true policy to continue the war for such an

ally announced in the two Grand Ledges, by the Duke of
Kent, Grand Master of the Free Masons of England ac.
cording to the old institutions, and by the Duke of Sussex,
Grand Master of the Free Masons, under the Constitution
of England, that Articles of Union between the two Fra-
ternities had been signed and scaled at Kensington Palace,
on Thursday the 25th Novy. last, after the two Societies
had beeu separated for acentury. On the retirement, up-
on account of old age, of Sir Christopher Wren, who had
olliciated for many years as Grand Master, Masonry for
a time fell into disuse; and when, in 1717, a Grand
Lodge was revived, some slight variation took place, which
occasioned a degree of disscusion, and which afterwards
was fomented by violent and cxaspelating Cxpressions, as

men, who perverted the Institution into a gainful trade
Notwithstanding the separation, the two Grand Lodge
Hourished, and spread their contributory Lodges over al
the carth ; and for some years past, a conciliatory dispo.
— sition has manifested itself, which by the fraternal exertion,
a Condescension, and example of the two il'ustrious Princes
How at the head of the respective bodies, has happily res.
{fored perfect unity to the Craft.
. We stated, that some time ago his Grace the Duke of
' Athol, who had been Grand Master of the Ancient’ Ma-
sons for 23 years, resigned the situation in favour cf the
Duke of Kent. Since bis appointment as Grand Master,
a negotiation for an union has gone on, in which, assisted
by three Commissioners, Tis Royal Highness has had se.
veral conferences with his Royal Brother, who was also
assisted hy three Commissioners on the part of the other
Mraternity ~ The result of which was the formal signature
of Articles of Unon, on Thursday se’nnight; in) which
(he principles, traditions, and practice of the Ancient
Craft, as well as the rights and privileges of every Mem.
ber of both Communities are completely preserved.— It
was further agreed, that two Grand Lodges should be held
on one and the same day, to confirm and ratify the same ;
Which accordingly took place on Wednesday last.
Pc viously tothe promulgation of the measure of Union,
the Grand Lodge of Masons, according to the old institu.
tions, was held at the Crown and Auchor Tavern, as we
stated yesterday, for the installation of the Duke of Kent
as their Grand Master. he ceremony was conduct.d
with all the rites and solemnities which have been handed
down to Masons from the earliest ages, and of which we
can render no account. His Roval Highness the Duke
of Sussex, accompanied by the Grand Oflicers of bis Pra-
ternity who had assisted at the conferences, and several
other distinguished Members, took the degree of Master
Mason, according f the ancient fortis. ina private Lodge,
as an example, which is to be rceiprocal, for the sake of
perfect equality, to all the Members of both the Lodyes.
The Procession then took place towarcs the Grand
