RATES OF POSTAGE.
In consequence of the general ignorance in the
South of the rules of postage established by law,
many letters of importance are daily lost to those
interested by being improperly or insufficiently
stamped. The regulations require that all such let
ters dropped into post offices shall be immediately
forwarded to the Dead Letter office, where they are
uever heard from unless thty contain money, or
other enclosures of value. "We give below some in

Opinions of Distinguished Busi
"Advertise your business. Do not hide your
light under a bushel. Whatever your calling or
occupation may be, if it needs support from the
public, advertise it thoroughly ana efficiently in
some shape or other, that will arrest public atter
tion. Ifreely confess that what success I have had
in life may fair!y be attributed more to the publio
press than to nearly all the other causes combined.
There may possibly be occupations that do not re
quire advertising, out I cannot well conceive what
thev aie. P. T. Barncm.
"I have always considered advertising liberally
and long to be the great medium of success in bus
iness, and the prelude to wealth. And I have al
wavs made it an invariable rule, too, to advertise
in the dullest times, a long experience having taught
me that money thus spent is well laid out; as by
keeping my business continually before the public,
has secured me many sales that I otherwise would
have lost." Stephen Qibakd.
"Whatever success 1 may have had in business I
owe mainly to continuous advertising, and I deem
it good policy to advertise long in the same papers.
From a close observation I am fully convinced that
it is impossible to make much headwsy in any kind
of business, without the facilities which the press
alone can give. Jacob Bidgkwat.
"My motto through Hie has been, work and ad
vertise. In busine8, advertising ia the trua philos
opher's stone, that turns whatever it touches to
g'jld. 1 have advertised much, both in the weekly
as well as the daily papers; nor have 1 foind that
those of the largest circulation, of either clss, ben
efitted me the roost. Johx Jacob Astor.
'Advertise! advertise! advertise! This is the lift
of trade; and standing advertisements, you will
find, will prove the most remuneiative, at least I
have found it so during my business career thus far;
for should you withdraw but a single week from the
paper & w nich yon are accustomed to advertise, ten
