p.3 Celebration of His Majesty's Birth Day - Tuesday last being the day appointed for commemorating the birth of His Majesty King George the Fourth, ...At an early hour we were exceedingly gratified with the novel and splendid sight of the vessels in commission decorated with the innumerable flags appertaining to the pride and glory of Britain. At one o'clock a royal salute was fired from guns placed near the residence of Commodore Barrie, and from the vessels moored near the Commodore's wharf. A feu de joie was also fired by the marines. The effect of the whole was exceedingly fine, and inspired the sons of Britain with feelings of the proudest exultation.
