Of Ihe s&ii) 560 men, ibe folk>wiug ships conveyed, viz.-Tartar and Perseverance, 300; George Canning, 80 ; and the Hero, 16p, bat^* the family were going in the evening to his lather's, I agreed to'accoiupany ihent. ] here met a Captain Charles Van Heestandt, who has a small estate called Boili Hiver, he had breii at sea twenty years, and at Calcutta several times under Danish colours. Willi this Geiil-leman I proceerled to old Tlieunis-sen's, al Tecklienhuis. The Captain was .received most kindly, but 1 observed a coldness in all tnwarda me, and the old nran was almost rude. This was accounted for in the course of the evening.- The hardness of the time", and the differeiice of the Dutch and Eiiglisli Governments, were occasionally alluded Ui. At length the old gentleman said e was �evei,tty-twoyears old, fifty of which had been passed in Africa, and never before had he kiion'ii the Boors so unhappy or so wretchedly off. The abolition of the sUve trade was the principal can�e. Slaves were now diffi?ult to be got, and the Hoiten-toiswho used formerly to be procurable in numbers had of late years ilecreased, and those that reioain-ed had flocked round the Missionaries, who had taught them tbe valu� of their labour and hire was now demanded a dollar a d.iy for ploughing, and four shillings for other labonrs; that, thus deprived of hand'*, the Governor liiid a year ago increased the tiixes and antiessed the land tenures. Formerly for 30 dollars a year, an estate of 3,000 moi-uans, equal to 6,000 acres, was held, that then 30 doUa.a were in some estates with difficulty raised^ and now that hands were scarce and the farmers must themselves plough, reap, and even drive their own �vaj;-gons, an increased revenue Vfa^ lo be paid; besides the mode of fixing the increase was parli-ciilarly objectionable, as the ipse dixit of the land-rost is taken and acted upon. Why does not Government, said the old man, appoint a Committee ? let them go to, and fairly examine the capaUilities of each entate-then ..asjess, and we would cheerfully [jiiy.
