NOTES ON DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860
NOTES ON DRESS; S FROM Pece: rnoF5 rusoir: IT is astonishing howl much rin olid iat eiidri be improved by rain. It is a fact that one which had been nearly three yahrs in Wear, having been thorough'y washed in' u thii'iddr hlidwsor and then carefully wiped, pres'rited, when dry, such a smooth and glossy dplicaranco thast it was mistaken for new by a little boy. A h black coat which is so old and threadbare that the slovenliest philosopher would rither not go about in it by day, will, if only ironed smooth, pass muster with wonderful success by candle light in the crowd of an evening party: A dress coat will last a careful man through several fashions. Trousers should be black or blue, or of some other colour as easily matched; for they are too apt to wear out in the bifurcation, and repeat edly require to be re-established on a new basis. Old clothes had better be kIept laid sip in lavender, of which a few bunches will last many ycur.r. Waistcoats should always button high. Shirts w...

LOST IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860
LoosT IN TE lusn.-A .distressing case of a lldy having been lost in the bush for upwards of six days has recently occurred at the Manning Rtiver. It appears that Mrs. Crofton, the wife of Mr. C. Crofton, at Toree, was suddenly missed from her homo a foew days ago, and al though not absent more than half an hour before parties were in nearch of her, all efforts were unavailing for that night, the next day, and the next; and it was not until the sinth day from the time ashe was lost that Mr. Avery providentially found the poor woman almost in a state of nudity and completely worn out and exhausted. lier mind seems quite astray since 'the occurranco.-Corres pondent Tnrmworlh Examiner.

GREAT MATCH AGAINST TIME.—BATHURST TO SYDNEY IN TWENTY HOURS! [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860
GREAT MATOCH AGAIVNST TIME.- -BATI URST TO SYDNEY ,V TI'WENTY 110OU .RS! [raOs s.3I. nsraaLD.J Ms. Phillip Skillicorni, of -Bathurst, succeeded Inst evening in accomplishing a feat unparalleled we be lieve in this colony, and one which for the credit of humanity it is to be hoped will not be repeated. T'ho cruelty which suich a performance involves, in our opinion more than ctdintex-balances any inter est which it may oltherwise create; and it is but sorry sport, after allt to dvcrtax the powers of a noble horse to such ail rsxtraodinary degree. In Bathurst, as will be seen from the annexed letter of our correspondent, the mattei appears to have been treated very lightly, and it is spoken of as though it were an ordinary sporting event of everyday oc currence. A different feeling, however, prevailed in Sydin y, and it is to the credit of our metropolitan sportsmen that, so far from approving of the match; they have for the most part strongly condemned the whole thing from beginning ...
NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860
NOTICE. WVE beg to inform our subscribers at Kiama, Jamboroo, Shellharbor, and Jerringong, that at Sthe end of this month (being the termination of the present quarter) we intend to discontinue the practice of sending the Examiner round by a courier. We are induced to take this step for tivo reasons-first, on account of the expense which it entailed, and secondly, because of its 'being found to work unsatisfactorily. During the late witer months it has required two horses to perform the bi-weekly journey by the way of Jamberoo to Shellharbor, iand the keeping and feeding of these, with the wages of a lad to ride, together with the weekly payment to a'postman for taking the papers southward, formed no in considerable item of expenditure. And, besides this, mistakes were constantly occurring in the delivery :. numerous complaints having been made to us on that score. We have endeavored as far as we could to check any irregularity, but as it was impossible to exercise proper super visi...

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1860. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1860. [COM31MUNICATED.] IIT.is one thing to promise, and another to per form,-but great is the faith of'mankind ;-and ;notwithstanding repeated experiences to the con trary, the pronmisers generally succeed in beat itg the performers hollow in public estimation: the magnificence of their intentions (words are easily spoken) making the dull, attained present, look wretched and unsatisfactory before the glow ing future. With this class of persons, New .South 'Wales is pretty familiar; we have them ..of all varieties, from the quack who cures every known disease by ona infallible remedy, to the :hero of the hustings, who has a panacea for the wrongs-real or imaginary-of the country; aind who, on the strength of his promises, worms `himself into power. 'With the first class, if they dispense injurious remedies, we bring the strong rurm of the law to bear upon them ; but what remedy have we against those who having in veigled themselves into position, abuse the tru...

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. JAMBEROO. September 3, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860
DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. LFno oU0 conn0fEos5o rT.] JAMBEROO. September 3, 38G0. Tut public tean meeting and musical entertainment which was to be holden as per advertisement, at Stoney Creek, in aid of the funds for the establish ment of the new National school in that locality, came off on Friday evening last in the building recently erected for a school-house, and with a re sult highly satisfactory, especially considering tihe difficulty and hazard of travelling a few miles in the present state of the roads and the weather. Thn attendance, however. was quite as large as the apartment would well accommodate: and some of the visitors had actually come from Wollongong for the purpose of attending. As the hour for the collation was comparively early (one o'clock) it is not surprising that the company assembled at that part of the proceedings was somewhat meagre. The number increased, however, during the eve ning, until, as mentioned above, they became as large as the building could conv...
