ADVERTISING—A CERTAIN WAY TO SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859

AD VERTISIG-A GCERTAIN WAY TO:" SUCOESS. We most cordially 'recommend to the cbonsidera tion of all business men the following sentiments of the greatest and most successful advertiser> thei world ever saw-P.~.?-T.Barnum, of Yankee no-. toriety. ADVERTIsE YOUR, BUSINESS5.-DO NOT HiiDE YOUR miOIT: UNDER AD USHEL. ,,Whatever yotr occupation or calling iiay be, if it needs': support from.the public advertise it. thoroughly and efficiently in some shape or other, that will.arrest public attention. I freely con fess that what success I have had in my life may fairly be attributed more to the public press than to nearly all other causes combined. There m@iy possibly be occupations that do not require adver tising, but I cannot conceive what they are. Men in business will sometimes tell you that they have tried advertising and that it- did not. pay. This is only when advertising is I done: .sparingly and grudgingly. Homoepathic doses of advertising will not pay, perhaps-it is like lhalf...

METALLURGICAL DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859

METALAURoICAL DIScovEaY. - Tungsten,-is a metal which .ha .hitherto been little studied in a practical point 6l view. It appears, however, des tined to operate acomplcte revolution in the manu facture of stdel. Tt has been lately discovered that an alloy formed of 80 per cent. of steel and 20 per cent. of tugsten possesses a degree of hardness which has never been obtained in the manufacture of steel. This alloy works on the latter with ifi credible facility, and can even cut it. Experi ments have been made with this new composition at Vienna, at Dresden, and at Neustadt, Eurst waldo; and considerable quantities of the alloy in question are, it is affirmed, being manufactured in that part of the world. Meny old tin mines have been brought up with a view of extracting tungsten ore, and considerable prices have been paid for some that have not been worked for a long time.-Mor. ning Star.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859

TO T'I iDITOI OF THE KIAMIA EXAInER. Sm,--In the report ofa speech made by me in your last issue, I am represented as stating there was only one school in the neighborhood alluded to. IIow the reporter could have so understood me, I cannot imagine. The whole drift of my argu ments and facts went to show the evil of multiplying schools in neighborhoods that ~ould only support one good one. The poorer dissenters were obliged to establish a "British School" In self-defence. Thus sectarian animosity and Jealousy were kept rife, and twohalf-famished schools woro in existeonce where there oughlt to have been one well supported, Tides was the re suit of tie Privy Council system in the country districtsof North Wales. I know of several such cases, and to such only did I allude in my remarks. Theroe is one other serious mistake, or rather deflcency, in your report, which I think yos oughtto rectify-the word "national" is omitted before the word "system" in the third resolution, which gives t...

DALTON'S PORTRAITS OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 29 October 1859

DALTO~n'S PORTRAITn S OF THIE LEGISLA TIVE ASdSEMBLY. (FROM TnE S. II. HERALD.) We have received one of the first'impressions of Mr. Dalton's sheet collection of photographic portraits of the members of the Legislative Assembly. The size of the group is about seventeen inches by thirteen, a convenient size for either framing or transmission to distant friends. ?Vithin these dimensions the portraits of seventy-nine gentlemen are grouped, the non.receipt of the writ for the northern gold fields electorate preventing the absolute com pleteness of the series. The collection, how ever, represents the gentlemen who were re turned by almost universal suffrage and vote by ballot to the first Legislative Assembly under the Electoral Reform Act of 1858. The group is an interesting one in many respects. The portraits, though of the ordinary miniature size, are wonderfully true and life-like, tlhe characteristic expression and attitude of each hen. member being exhibited with the most careful-a...
