THE PUBLIC LANDING OF THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 25 January 1868

|THE PUBLIC LANDING OF THE PRINCE. Never since the foundation of thfe colony has there been witnessed .within its limits a sight like that which was presented yesterday in the city of Sydney. When his RoyaUHighness the Duke of Edinburgh entered our harbour as Captain of I the Galatea, he was welcomed *by scores of thou sands on the water and tens of thousands on the shore ; but on the occasion of his public entry, yesterday, as Prince Alfred, there were all the signs of a Royal progress. It seemed as though eacn one vied with Ins neighbour m regard to the display of loyalty, and the masses which lined the streets' through which the procession passed were, in density, not exceeded even by London crowds, whe^ the Queen iu person treads the thronged sweets to Westminister. The distance was of ?-. course much shorter, but the city turned en masse, the suburbs came to town, and tens of thousands from the country swelled the throng.

THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 25 January 1868

THURSDAY. Although there was nothing .special to be .seen yesterday in the city, the streets had a holiday appearance. Many of the illnniinatiqna and trans: parancies had been taken down, but the flags and festoons remained, and crowds thronged the path ways. Tho last four days have been a busy time for the railways. The passenger traffic has been unusually heavy ; and there never was a period m our insiovy wnere so many tnousanu persons poured into the city from the country. On Wed nesday evening, between nine and half-past eleven, there wore three extra trains, which conveyed five or six thousand people to the suburbs. . The 7.27 train to Sydney yesterday evening was crowded to excess, and the return traffic tested the capa bilities of the railway department.

PERSONAL APPEARANCE OF THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 25 January 1868

PERSONAL APPEARANCE OF THE PRINCE. The personal appearance of hit) Royal Highness, as ho stepped on shore and walked up the plat form to the triumphal arch, was interesting in the extreme. His youthful look, comparatively small stature, aud plain dress, -ett.de him appear to some disadvantage, so iar as mere pageantry wus concerned, iu contrast with tho bulky forms and gaudy trappings of most of those by whom he was received. l'lio Prince threw rapid and somewhat timid glances arouud, as lifting his hat he slowly walked up the ranks which lined the access to the arch, and approached the Mayor, who, in his gorgeous robes of office, was waiting to read the illuminated address. His glance being mofc on all sides by looks of welcome and kindly faces, the shade of nervousness which his Royal Highness at first betrayed at once wore off. He never for a moment appeared in the slightest degree disconcerted. It was rather the engaging hesitation of a modest youth upon finding himself under th...

Notwithstanding tho quantity of rain that had fallen this district previous to Wednesday last, the long-parched ground seems to have absorbed all traces of it ; and although the effects of the late showers are very apparont in tho quantity of market able commodities which are on every hand offered for salo at our doors and at the greengrocers', atill our farmers, or rather those amougst them who ' plough deep while sluggards sleep,' cry out for much more moisture to place them in 'full work.'
