Accounts to the beginning of May have been received from

Demerara. The new Civil List, demanded by the Downing Street people, and adopted by the Court of Policy, in which the Govern- ment officials thrill an absolute majority, had been submitted to the Combined Court, which includes six " financial representatives" chosen by the colonists. The Combined Court decided by a vote of 10 to 5 against the Civil List, and substituted another, hardly less liberal in salaries to the Executive and subordinate officers— much more liberal to religious and educational establishments, but insisting on a complete control of the revenue for the purpose of encouraging immigration, and security for "legislative privileges." The Governor was not authorized to comply with these demands ; so there must be another reference to Downing Street. Mean- while, the majority of the Combined Court have done their duty nobly.
