TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 18 January 1860

TO THIE EDITOR OF TilE KIA3IA FXAMIRER. Srm,--In your issue of the 14th i:istant I noticed an anonymnous production in the shape of a dialogue between Brownand Jones, reflecting not so much, as it would do, the charnacter of our worthy and well-meaningcouncillors at Shellhliarboi, as it does on the characterof the creature, who wrote it. 'If this fellow be one of those who offered himself to the public at the lastelection, and was happily rejected by the good sense of the cmmunity, we pity him ;. if lie be not, we are not ashlamed to say, we despise him.' There is an old adage which says, " Show mone his company and I'll tell you whlat thie man is." So here we may sayof this worthy, show me his spirit-showv me his dogeral-and I'll tell you what thile blockhead is.. This "satepayer"--this Jones, as he would signify him self to be, has takdn great pains indeed to describe hIis own character in his late 'prelous production, which character, according to his bwn ,acnnowledgment, is that...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 18 January 1860

SGreat pains have been taken in tlhis colony to have the elective franchise extended to everyone of mature years and. of sound: mind. Mr. .COWPER, in his successful labors to effect this, has endeared himself to every lover of liberty. But we would remind our readers that although the suffrage is now nearly universal, any whose qualification does not appear on the electoral roll of his district, cannot vote for a mnemib·ir of par liament; he is ascompletely shut out from the exercise of the politicalinfluence to which, as a citizen, he is entitled, as if the Electoral Act were stillunreformed, and contained, as it for merly did, provisos debarring him from the ex ercise of his inalienable right. The electoralroll is now being prepared for this district; and-notwithstanding the care with which those who have undertaken the work may goabout it, it is quite possible that a number of those qualified may have their names omitted. We would tlherefore request- our readers:to take a little ...

This is the second fiatal accident that has occurred at this identical spot.. Certainly our Council should exert them solves to make the road at this spot safer without further delay. The state.of the roads in the Shellharbor muni 'cipality call for prompt action from the Council. They are almost .impossible to drive over with safety, the stumps and trees are so numerous.

MUNICIPAL ELECTION.--We are given to under   stand that in each of the three wards of this munici- pality there will be a contested election..For the   Kiama ward Mr. Joseph Pike, yielding to the en- treaty of a numerously signed requisition, has taken the field with a fair chance of success. Mr. Pike will have to measure arms with Mr. G. K. Waldron, who is being brought forward in opposition. For the Jamberoo ward the old member, Mr. John Hanrahan, will stand again, and his election will be opposed by Mr. John Black, a highly respectable young man of liberal opinions, who would, if re- turned, make an excellent alderman. What is being done at Gerringong has not as yet reached us, but rumor says there will be a contest there too. TEMPERANCE RE...

ULLADULLA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860

ULLADUJLLA. The land sale turned out a poor affair, there were none of the country lots sold, and scarcely a dozen of the town lots. People who want to purchase land don't want to purchase sandy beach; and how could it be imagined that anything else could be for sale now in the vicinity of tlladulfa. The Milton allotments are expected to go off mnch better, as the place is better situated for general business. I wish to secure a lot there myself, but I am afraid that they will go beyond my means; however, as they are to go by public auction I must take my chance. A portion of the magistrates went on last Thursday to examine the road at Conjoula. I believe they are of opinion that it should be repaired at once, as it is in a very dangerous state. The Debating Society will hold their next meeting in those premises known, as the Doctor's House, near the Traveller's Home Inn.
