Falmouth, June 18 - At Martha Brae, Mr. David McConnell, of this town, merchant, to Miss Crew.


Early on Wednesday morning, Francis Dashwood, Esq. Deputy Post Master General of this island, and in the commission of the peace for this parish. He was a few hours before his death in apparent good health, but was seized in the night with a fit of apoplexy, which shortly deprived him of life. In the department this Gentleman held under Government, he studiously endeavoured to give general satisfaction, and by his affability endeared himself to a large and respectable circle of friends and acquaintances.

At Purling Stream, in St. James, Mrs. Agnes Bryan.


A letter from Clarendon mentions, that a melancholy accident had happened to Captain Smith, of the ship Castle Douglass, who, on his way from Salt River to Hillside Estate, was thrown from his horse against a honey comb rock, by which his skull was so severely fractured that his life is despaired of.


His Honour the Lieutenant Governor has been pleased to appoint George Bogle, Esq. Deputy Post Master General of this island, protempore, in the place of Francis Dashwood, Esquire, deceased.


The public are hereby cautioned against two of the most accomplished swindlers that have ever appeared on this continent, Major Richard Barrington, and Susannah his wife, or whatever else she may be: he is about five feet eight inches, handsome and well made, an aquiline mole, his hair flat on his forehead, short at the ears, platted and turned up behind with a comb. His upper garment in generally the Windsor livery, a blue frock with red cape, a mixed brown coat or a green. Elegant and polite in his manners, and exceedingly plausible in his conversation. She is about five feet three inches, a handsome brunette, very ruddy, her hair generally dressed in the French West India style, and will travel occasionally with a white or black beaver hat, a green or blue riding habit. She is a native of Philadelphia, her maiden name "Budden." Since they clandestinely decamped from Charleston, evidence of signatures of forgery have made their appearances; and if their persons could be detained till matters were ascertained, by documents from England, it would be highly pleasing to the community, and particularly to the subscribers.
