Yass. JANUARY 20.-The weather continues very dry, with hot and strong winds; which generally come from the southward and eastward. The roads are very disagreeable owing to the clouds of dust.

THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 23 January 1839
THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE. She all her life, indeed, had been and continued sincerely attached to her mother, and soon after showed how little industri- ous slander had prevailed over her unalter- able confidence in the probity as well as the tender affection of that parent. She was a person of great abilities and tolerably well cultivated; to the quickness of her mother, she united more deliberate judge- ment, and she inherited her resolute courage and determination of character. She had a temper violent and irascible, which neither her own efforts nor those of her preceptors had been able to tame;. but there was nothing mean, spiteful, or revengeful in her disposition : while her mother's easy nature, her freedom from all pride and affectation, her warmth of affec- tion, her playfulness of manner, were yet calculated to shed a singular lustre over so exalted a station, and make the character of her whom they adorned peculiarly at- tractive. These two great Ladies were not more united...

QUEEN CAROLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 23 January 1839
QUEEN CAROLINB. Caroline Princess of Brunswick was the individual whom it was found convenient to make the sacrifice on this occasion to an nrangement that diffused so universal ajoy through this free, moral, and reflecting country. She was niece of George Ill., and consequently,one of the Prince's near e-t re ations. Nor has it ever been denied, that in her youth she was a Princess of siu izulur accomplishments, as well of mind as of person. All who had seen her in those days, represented her as lovely; nor did she on touching our shores, disappoint the expectations which those eye-witnesses had raised. All who had known her in that season of youth, and before care had become the companion of her life, anti the cruelty of others had preyed upon her feel ings and sapped her understanding, describ. ed her mental endowments as brilliant and a jncjge, alike experienced and severely fat tidious,long after she had come amongst us. painetd her as formed to be 'the life, Brace, nod ornamen...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 23 January 1839
Port Phillip. The following is an article headed " Port Phillip &nbsp; in 1838." We doubt not but that Port Phillip, or Melbourne, is as excellent as the writer represents it to be, and we rejoice in the fact. All the Colonies of Australia should rejoice in the superior advan- tages of the other. It is as mean, as it is injurious to all of them, to run each other down, as the little minded author of the following does South Aus- tralia.--Ed. Syn. MON.
PORT PHILLIP IN 1838, BY A VISITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 23 January 1839
PORT PHILLIP IN 1838, BY A VISITOR. I promised a long and full account of this place, but the limited period of my visit prevents the ful- filment of such promise. I have, however, to men- tion, that I approached the Heads with feelings of an unpleasant nature, for reports were unfavorable as to its entrance. The clear channel is about a mile and a half; the rate of tide with its violen ripplings, is not near so bad as som places-- such for instance as Calcutta, Dardanelles, Bosphorus, Pent and Frith, Queen Charlotte's Sound, and many others--it is nevertheless an awkward place &nbsp; for a ship to be becalmed, and it requires a high and low light to render it serviceable to vessels in the night. The sands within the Heads also want buoys, which should be firmly built of pine or cedar, and be well sheathed and coppered. There are many parts within the Heads that require either buoys or beacons, and to render Melbourne river more ac- cessible, buoys and beacons would be found...

The defendant pleaded not.guilty. Alessrs. Chamn hers and Thurlow for the prosecution, and Mr. GJR. Nicholls for the defence. Mr. Nicholls admitted the sale of the cattle, but justified on the ground of it not being the intention of the Act to prohibit the sale of live stock on the premises of the owner, when the ground was safely enclosed, and the sale did not endanger the safety of the public. AMr. Nicholls said, that in this case it was well known that Por.Acx's BAZAAR was 'the TAsrrt?iALL's of Australia. To follow the Act up to the letter, would be to prevent a man sell...
