Extracts from works on Emigration.
"For the purchase of Ironmongery, it is necessary to be very particular as to the description, sizes, and quality; what you want, therefore, should be procured of a person who well knows the market; if the things are not the patterns in use, they will not be even looked at, much less purchased."—Widdowson on Van Diemen's Land, page 42.
"The articles to the above patterns may be seen and bought at Messrs. Richards, Wood, and Co."—Widdowson on Van Diemen's Land, page 41.
"I bought my Ironmongery of Messrs. Richards, Wood, and Co., No. 117, Bishopsgate-street Within, and upon comparison of invoices with some of my friends in the Colony, I found I had been well used, and the quality of things furnished me was excellent; they had been for years in the Australian trade, and understand the kind of articles required in these Colonies."—Gouger's South Australia, page 126.

Carson'S Original Anti-Corrosion Paint.

Specially patronized by the Government.
The Anti-Corrosion Paint has been used by the Hon. Board of Ordnance for upwards of half a century, who have proved it to prevent rust or corrosion on Iron longer and better than the very best White Lead or any other description of Paint; and, inconsequence of its possessing this invaluable quality, all the Iron Guns and Gun Carriages both for land and sea service, have been painted with it for the above period. It will, therefore, be found a very superior preservative of Iron Steam Boats, Iron Bridges, Piers, or any other extensive Iron-Work. It has also been used in great quantities by other public bodies, and by numbers of gentlemen of the first distinction, to preserve Wooden Houses, Farm and other Out-buildings, Conservatories, Park Paling, Iron Railing, Compo, &c., Fronts, and Tiles to represent slating.
This paint is admirably adapted for preventing the decay of old Stone or Brick Mansions, Churches, or other Public Edifices requiring an effectual defence against the elements, as it will become harder than stone in a few months after it is laid on. It is particularly recommended to West India Proprietors, Emigrants, and others connected with the Colonies, who will find it to stand all climates better than any other Paint hitherto invented. The superiority of the Anti-Corrosion to any other Paint may be easily inferred from the simple fact, that its use has always been most strenuously opposed by persons interested in the sale of common Paints.
Colours:—Light Drab, and Yellow Stone, Light and Dark Lead, Copper, Chocolate, and Red, 34s. per cwt.; Invisible Green, 50s. per cwt.; Deep Green, 60s. per cwt.; Oil and Brushes.
The Mark-lane Express, in alluding to this Paint, says:—"—which, from its intrinsic excellence and durability, has been patronised by the Hon. Board of Ordnance for upwards of half a century, and is held in the highest estimation by numbers of the most influential agriculturalists throughout the kingdom."
An eminent writer (Mr. Loudon) speaks of this Paint n the following terms:—"It lasts so long when applied to iron or well-seasoned timber or masonry, as seldom to require a renewal during a man's life-time."
The Original Anti-Corrosion Paint is only to be obtained of Walter Carson, (Successor to the Inventors) Manufacturer, by appointment, to the Hon. Board of Ordnance, the Hon. East India Company, and the principal London Dock Companies, 15, Tokenhouseyard, near the Bank, London.
