The Mercantiei Ad-. vertiser of Monday fortnight ri.ybe quoted with great effect, more particularly as the number we allude to is said to " exhibit perfection!" That " faultless monster which the world ne'er saw," is embodied (if we can believe Mr. Ironside) in The . ercan tile Advertiser, No. II.! !1 The paragraph which so complacently and confi dently avows that The Advertiser of the 15th of June exhibits perfection, is the more ridiculous when we find that this very paper contains some of the grossest blunders. For instance, the cargo of the Thomas Harrison is shipped on board the schooner Jane rnd Henry?! That this blunder should .have been copied by all the Sydney newspapers is not so much to he wondered at; but ...
