(From the Adrertiser.) The negotiation for a new ministry isat .a end. The cause is a personal iunsult to our young Queen by Sir Rbertn Peel, and, strange to say, authorized by the Duke of Wellingtori. Every oflice in the state-every place in thla househoid, held by any member of parliament ; or by any person of political influencr, was placed at the disposal of Sir Robert Peel. But not content with this,sacrifice, sanctioaed by our oonstitutional principles, though never freely or completely granted by her grandfatiher and uncles, and in truth never exacted, from them to its full extent-the Queen was ree quired to sacrifice to the vanity of tile Tory I?. dies, or to the rapacity of their lordsand-hul betdid, all the ladies in attendance one hbr pers son. In otlier words, a young Queen,. twenty years of age, who has lived for two years withl friends, whose affeotions she has gained, and-to whom she was warmly attached, was abitiptll called upon to ensconce herself'among pers who hav...

Port Essington. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 September 1839
Port Essington. &nbsp; The last accounts from Part Essington re- presents the satisfactory progress of that infant settlement. A Government House, Church, Military Barracks, Gaol, and several houses have been already erected; a good wharf has been constructed, and other important public works are in progress. Some new rivers have been discovered, one of which is repre- sented as being sufficently broad and deep to allow a vessel to stand upon a tack for an hour. The country is said to produce abun- dent pasturage for cattle, and fruit of several descriptions, but the heat is excessive. The natives were peaceable, and had established a friendly intercourse with the Malays, who occasionally trade with the coast. The Gilmore, now discharging at the Queen's wharf, has been again chartered by Govern- ment, to proceed to Port Essington with stores. She sails in company with H. M. Ship Alligator.

RESIGNATION OF THE PEEL MINISTRY.-The Parkfield, which arrived on Sunday last, has brought the rather startling intelligence, that the Tory Cabinet, after having been almost completed, has been compelled to re linquish office; and that Lord Mel bourne is again at the head of affairs. Sir Robert Peel, it seems, had de manded of the Queen the power of removing some of the ladies of her household, and appointing others in their room. The Queen, with great propriety, resisted such an application, and Sir Robert finding, besides, some difficulty in forming a Cabinet to his satisfaction, tendered his resignation. Upon this, the Queen requested Lord Melbourne to resume office, to which request he had acceded. We trust the Whig Ministry will see the necessity of taking a more de termined and straight-forward course ...

To our agents and Subscribers. We continue to send a few extra copies to our country friends and agents, that new subscribers may have access to the early numbers; but this we will continue to do only for a very limited time, and we beg that we may be put in possession of complete lists at soon as possible. New subscribers should state whether they wish to have the numbers from the commencement. A Gentleman, whose name by some mistake had got into our list of Subscribers, having intimated that he is no Subscriber, we beg to request any person to whom our Paper is sent against his wish, to make known the fact to our Publisher. We are not under any necessity, nor have we any inclination, to force a circu lation. We have only been a few weeks in ex istence, and our circulation is already nearly double that of some the oldest Sydney Journals.

(From the Morning Chronicle.) When we last addressed our readers we naturally concluded that, as the Queen had em- powered Sir Robert Peel to form an adminis- tration, the Tories would possess themselves of the government as a matter of course. The country will be not a little astonished to learn that the Peel administration is already at an end.................................... ..We have never understood that ministerial responsibility extended to the affections and domestic enjoyments of the Sovereign. Occa- sionally, indeed, our Sovereigns have contended for the nomination of the higher officers of the household, and ministers have sometimes yielded to the personal wishes of the Sovereign, and at other times insisted on their right to these appointments ; but this, we believe, is the first time that a minister contended that the Sovereign should be a perfect automaton in his hands, and consent to be placed in personal durance. We protest, in the name of the coun try, against th...
