Notes

Scope and Content:
The Department of Archives' newspaper collection consists of newspaper runs printed in Barbados, or other former British colonies, in English. Newspapers in the collection range from the 18th c to present day (the oldest extant being The Mercury Gazette from 1783). Most of the newspapers in the collection were acquired through the Public Library and the Barbados Museum and Historical Society c 1965. The newspapers provide information about Barbados’ social, political, economic, and religious history during slavery, and after Emancipation. They frequently also contain information on other British colonies, the U.S., and Britain. They are an important source for the study of the Atlantic World. Some of the titles in the collection are: The Barbadian; The Times; The Agricultural Reporter; The Liberal; The Barbados Globe and Colonial Advocate; The Advocate; The Barbados Herald; The West Indian, etc. "The Mercury Gazette was printed in Bridgetown, Barbados, between 1762 - 1848 (or possibly up to 1864). It continued as the Barbados Mercury and Bridgetown Gazette from c 1805. Its first editor was George Edmand (sic). Subsequent editors were William Walker; the Orderson family (father John; sons Robson and Isaac Williamson); T.A. Walker; Henry King; and D. J. Benskin. It was printed initially once per week on Saturdays (until c 1784), then twice per week on Tuesdays and Saturdays (until c 1840), and then on Tuesdays and Fridays (occasionally on Thursdays or Saturdays). In the masthead, it bears a woodcut of the British Royal Coat of Arms, which changes through the run of the Mercury’s publication to reflect territorial changes that took place during the reign of different monarchs. The Mercury consists of 1 folio (four pages in total). The size and quality of the paper used varies throughout the run of its publication. The typeface used is also inconsistent. Some issues have supplements and can have additional pages. Issues were bound in volumes. Most volumes contain one year’s worth of issues, while others contain two, and rarely three. Many issues have deteriorated considerably. Some are brittle, beyond repair, and others have worm holes and tears. Some are quite dark due to the acidic nature of the paper. While most of the issues are legible, some of the above reasons impact legibility for parts of the newspaper. As a result, many issues miss pages or parts of them, some issues are missing, and at times whole months are missing all together (please see relevant extent information for each volume). The Mercury is an important primary source, crucial for understanding Barbados’ 18th and 19th century history, particularly because these were formative years for the island. The newspaper sheds light on the everyday life of a slave-holding society and provides a wealth of information on networks of people, commerce, governance, socioeconomic conditions, race, religion, politics, entertainment, education, etc. Of particular interest are the ads offering rewards for enslaved people who had “absconded,” as they are filled with detailed accounts of who these people were, including their names, what they looked like, their clothes, accents, distinguishing features, friends, families and skills. The extant volumes at the Department of Archives span nearly seventy years and cover the period of the transition from slavery to Emancipation, including the 1816 Bussa Rebellion (slave revolt). It gives an intimate window into the island's colonial past."

the rain that bas partially impeded the manu-
facturing process, appear to have decreased
the wonted activity of the past two or three
monthe, exhibited in the shipping business.
Freightage, therefore, is notin demand ; parti-
cularly, toc, as returo ahips ere expected,
aod the crop is far advanced in reeping.
Importations are not very extensive. Some-
where about 2,461 barrels of flour, 1,939
barrels of corumeal, 495. barrels of .crackers,
483 barrels pork, 700 bags peas, 195 do.
corn, 2,000 bags of Rice, (via Demerary )
beans, candles, beef, &c. dcc., have been
taken in, but from these quantities the usual
exportations to the Colonies will be made.
From ‘the. Colonies there has been a full
supply of articles grown there, aod also of
imported goods. ‘There being a continuous
interchange of commodities between this and
the other Islands, it would be unp/ofitable
to detail every item mioutely, From En-~
gland there bave teen only afew arrivale,
with supplies of goods, coming under the
head *‘ general cargo.”, The. Steam Packets
bring constant supplies of five articles in
the Haberdashery line, and Grocers’ perish-
able azticles. There is now a monthly
communication between the Colonies and
the United States, and it is very prognos-
tic. of immense advantage to the trade of
these placez. The sales of Dry Goods on
the first day of the week are generally
very heavy, and great spirit is manifested by
purchasers ; alterwarde, only a fair business is
done, and itis.exclusively in the bands of a
limited number of large Importers. ‘The Pro-
vision Trade is in a fixed and sound state,
varying but little, according to supply. end
demard—transactiong limited, but on the
best terms. From the States, the princi-
pal importations, besides those already men-
tioned, are of White Pine and Shingles.

not be expected that any decided improve-
meot, or any permanent increase of prices,
would follow this intelligence immediately,
aod not uvtil a more lasting feature is as-
sumed by commerce in England. There
are a great macy rumours respécting the
intentions of the British Goverament to
lay a heavy Protecting Duty on Sugar.
(B.P.) We fervently trust that such may
not be mere fumour ; but that it may assume
the tangible character of a Government mea-
sure, extending its benign influence ver
the now languishing interests of the West
Indies—geviving them, and restoting the
failing fortuoes of West Indians to prosper-
ty bitherio enjoyed; supporting the new
Colonial system, which was and is intend-
ed to befor “the glory of God, and the
present and future welfare of mankind,”
We must.not omit to notice that Sweet
Potatoes have been exported to’ Demera-
ra to a very large extent. This eviden-
ces the fact that the country can feed its
inbabitants and spare a neighbour its pro-
ducts liberally. It is @ sure source of
helping the planter to,meet his expenser,
for the sale is effected for cash, and of

such description, that he is not only as-
sisted, but accommodated, with.“ small
chenge.”

rley Hurricane of the 10th October; from the effects

” of which it was not restored for several years.

‘ards At lenvth, upon thereceipt of £400 from Mr,

the John Brathwaite, Chairman of a Committee for
distributing private donations raised in England

ased forthe relief of the sufferers, who ina letter
ee forwarding this sum to the Reverend Thomas
Wharton, Rector of St. Michael, acqnainted him

Pet: thatit was unanimously voted by the Committee
Les~ to go towards the rebuilding Harrison’s. Free
ural School, the work was commenced ; the interest
Saint of the money deposited in Mr. Harrison’s Estate

being also applied by the Trustees to the same
purpose ; for the accomplishing of which a Com-
ased . mittee, composed of the Rector, Mr. G. Wat-
stice { rond, the T'reasurer of the School at that time,
ndar, and Mr. Crichlow the Church-Warden of the
orge Vestry, wae appointed. The expense of rebuild.

‘ural ® } ing the School amounted to £543 9s 81, which
rat ie did not greatly exceed the sum at their disposal,

Indeed it would seem that the repairs of the build-

| ing were estimated more in reference to the

ased | limited amount of their funds, than to its. com-
stice plete restoration ; for it was not many years af-
1olas terwards that a subscription was got. up iv the
aud Town, amongst those Gentlemen who had been
{ educated at the School, for putting anew floor

ased and other repairs toit. which bad become neces-
. sary. Thesum of £138 15s, obtained in this
eues. way, was presented tu the Rector, the Revd.
ncan W: Garnett, in 1805, and applied by him to that

Wm. purpose; the Revd. Neblett, afterwards Rector

Ro- t of St. Lucy, being then Master.
eof ~ The House bought hy the Trustees as a resi-

dence for the Master, was not rebuilt after the

the ~# Pe which no benefit was derived for many years
after ; till in 1820 they some determiaed upon

PALS selling it, but difficulty arising in the execution
hael, of'a Conveyance, they agreed to lease it fora
seph term of years at £25 per annum. The rent was

allowed to remain in arrear, and to accumnlate
been a > to a considerable sum (£166 10s.), _which it

4 amounted to in 1828. About this time a

hea proposal was made to the Trustees throngh the
cial Jate Mr. Gill, in behalf of the tenant, who had
nem erected a house on the vacant®piece of land leased
rt yal by her, which rented for £45 a year, that they
cave, ghould become the purchasers of the House. for
a certaic sum, and terminate the lease; which

they agreed to accept accordingly; they the

Sam- This srrangement was effected in February,
ables 1831, and the prospects. of the School began to
ch { brighten, when suddenly-they were again over-

cre effects however were not quite so disastrous as

DP the former; the buildings wero less damaged

f by any means 80 greatan outlay to restore them.
Neither did it occasion an interruption of more

i. . thana few months to the instruction of the boys

CARLISLE’ BAY.



REVIEW OF THE COMMERCIAL

MARKET.

During the past fortnight, a large quan-
tity: of Sugar has been exported, together
with a cargo or two of Molasses. © (bis, and
the rain that bas partially impeded the manu-
facturing process, appear to have decreased
the wonted activity of the past two or three
monthe, exhibited in the shipping business.
Freightage, therefore, is notin demand ; parti-
cularly, toc, as returo ahips ere expected,
aod the crop is far advanced in reeping.
Importations are not very extensive. Some-
where about 2,461 barrels of flour, 1,939
barrels of corumeal, 495. barrels of .crackers,
483 barrels pork, 700 bags peas, 195 do.
corn, 2,000 bags of Rice, (via Demerary )
beans, candles, beef, &c. dcc., have been
taken in, but from these quantities the usual
exportations to the Colonies will be made.
From ‘the. Colonies there has been a full
supply of articles grown there, aod also of
imported goods. ‘There being a continuous
interchange of commodities between this and
the other Islands, it would be unp/ofitable
to detail every item mioutely, From En-~
gland there bave teen only afew arrivale,
with supplies of goods, coming under the
head *‘ general cargo.”, The. Steam Packets
bring constant supplies of five articles in
the Haberdashery line, and Grocers’ perish-
able azticles. There is now a monthly
communication between the Colonies and
the United States, and it is very prognos-
tic. of immense advantage to the trade of
these placez. The sales of Dry Goods on
the first day of the week are generally
very heavy, and great spirit is manifested by
purchasers ; alterwarde, only a fair business is
done, and itis.exclusively in the bands of a
limited number of large Importers. ‘The Pro-
vision Trade is in a fixed and sound state,
varying but little, according to supply. end
demard—transactiong limited, but on the
best terms. From the States, the princi-
pal importations, besides those already men-
tioned, are of White Pine and Shingles.

not be expected that any decided improve-
meot, or any permanent increase of prices,
would follow this intelligence immediately,
aod not uvtil a more lasting feature is as-
sumed by commerce in England. There
are a great macy rumours respécting the
intentions of the British Goverament to
lay a heavy Protecting Duty on Sugar.
(B.P.) We fervently trust that such may
not be mere fumour ; but that it may assume
the tangible character of a Government mea-
sure, extending its benign influence ver
the now languishing interests of the West
Indies—geviving them, and restoting the
failing fortuoes of West Indians to prosper-
ty bitherio enjoyed; supporting the new
Colonial system, which was and is intend-
ed to befor “the glory of God, and the
present and future welfare of mankind,”
We must.not omit to notice that Sweet
Potatoes have been exported to’ Demera-
ra to a very large extent. This eviden-
ces the fact that the country can feed its
inbabitants and spare a neighbour its pro-
ducts liberally. It is @ sure source of
helping the planter to,meet his expenser,
for the sale is effected for cash, and of

such description, that he is not only as-
sisted, but accommodated, with.“ small
chenge.”
