The Children's Model. CLARISSA HARRIS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 3 January 1857
Wat (ffiten's Mflkl. -5 CLARISSA HARRIS. BY THE REV. JABEZ BURNS. IN the year 1849, a lovely, intelligent girl, of eleven years of age, the daughter of one of my hearers and christian friends, returned to London from Staffordshire, where she had been residing with a relative. She at once united with her sisters, in attending my Bible-class. Her manners were very engaging, her conduct quite exemplary; and she soon became an object of my affectionate regard. She was very quick,and lively, yet gentle and meek, and showed a very tender and loving spirit. She had been well trained, and read the holy Scriptures with great correctness and propriety. Her voice was sweet, her enunciation clear and distinct, and her manner made it evident that in general she understood what she read. Her replies were apt, and in the main correct. She was very regular in her attendance, and evidently loved her Bible-class. She united great simplicity with con siderable self-possession, and was neither foolishl...
SWEET HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 3 January 1857
SWEET HOME. HOME, sweet home, and the father's chair, Oh, what happiness centres there ! A day of toil, and an eve of rest, Circled by those he lores the best ; And a calm and a peaceful sleep at night And spirits at morn as the morning bright. Did happiness dwell here always so In days gone by ? Ah, no! ah, no! That happy father was wretched then, That happy house was a demon's den; That happy mother was left to moan In grief and poverty all alone : For he drank of a spirit that fired the vein, Blasted the heart, and scathed the brain; For children or wife, no thought had he, But he wallowed in guilt and misery; But now-sweet home! and the father's chair, Oh, what happiness centres there ! BY JAMES EDMESTON, ESQ.

Poetry. THE DESPOT. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 3 January 1857
THE DESPOT. WHEN alien hordes menac'd the land, And despots mark'd us for their prey; Then rose our Saxon valour high, And ne'er was seen beneath the sky A nobler, braver band, then they Who, by a kindly Alfred led, Press'd sternly to the battle field, Bravely for freedom fought and bled, And taught the haughty Dane to yield Submission to that Saxon band. Alas! there dwells among our race A despot worse than robber Dane; The war he wageth lasteth long And, luring us by toast and song, He treacherous, links us to his chain, . And Britons are by millions bound Slaves to his most ungodly sway; Drunkards and paupers pine around; And who-and where-such slaves as they ? Their misery stamp'd on every face. Awake! our Saxon father's flame And beat the brutal despot back! And spring our British courage up To burst the "bondage of the cup," And lift the sufferer from the rack. Where is the man who dares to raise His moral power in such a cause, And snatch the martyr from the blaze Of bigot fi...
WHO CAN TELL? WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT? [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 3 January 1857
WHO CAN TELL ? WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT? NOT long ago we heard the following story told at a public meeting among very poor people in a miserable part of London: " When people instead of putting their names and occupations over their shops as they do at present, only used signs and mottoes, there was a poor costermonger who got written for him over his door "WHO CAN TELL?" By degrees the costermonger's little barrow grew into a cart, for he was sober, frugal, and active, and feared God, and wasted nothing. Then in time the cart became a waggon, and at last the costermonger drove about in his carriage, and then he wrote up "WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT?" Well, "who can tell" how soon, if you set to work the right way, the miserable one room may become a comfortable house of two stories-how soon the staggering husband or the unhappy wife and the crying children may be changed into the sober, dili gent, affectionate companion, and duti ful sons and daughters-how soon the wretched pallet ...
OUR PAST AND FUTURE EFFORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 3 January 1857
OUR PAST AND FUTURE EFFORTS. commencing a new year we have almost assumed a new title; this ^21 we found necessary for the sake of being more consistent, as the work, from the nature of it, could never be properly called a " Review." We have made other trifling alterations, which we hope will be considered improvements; and with sincerity we would say, that all that can be done to render it interesting to its numerous readers, as far as our humble abilities and limited means will admit, it shall be our pleasure to do, during the year upon which we are entering. The " AUSTRALIAN BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL4' has just reached its twenty-seventh issue. Embarked as it was under a multitude of conflicting circumstances, we thank our readers and congratulate ourselves 'that we have been enabled, through their indulgence and our untiring efforts, to continue its publication with so much success. To attack so vital an evil as its pages have constantly grappled with, at first sight appeared to us, ...

?h $Usqm jfraolj. BT MBS. HARRIET BEECHES STOWE. (Authoress of " Uncle Tom's Cabin" "Dred4"c., See.) THE REQUEST AND THE REFUSAL. " AND SO you will not sign this paper ?" said Alfred Melton to his cousin, a fine-looking young man, who was lounging by the centre-table. " Not I, indeed. What in life have I to do with these decidedly vulgar temperance pledges ? Pshaw ? they have a relish of whiskey in their very essence ?" " Come, come, cousin Melton," said a brilliant dark-eyed girl, who had been lolling on the sofa during the conference, " I beg of you to give over attempting to evangelise Edward. You see, as Falstaff has it, 'he is | little better than one of the wicked.' You must not waste such valuable temperance documents on him." " But, seriously, Melton, my good fellow," resumed Edward, " this signing and sealing, and pledging is altogether an unnecessary affair for me. My past and present habits, my situation in life-in short, everything that can be mentioned with regard to me...

Som three of mp Neighbours Kept Christmas. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 3 January 1857
$ofo tjjm of mjr ^Ccig^bonrs Iiejjt Cjiristmns. BY MRS. CLARA LUCAS BALFOUR. " CHRISTMAS will soon be here, ma'am," said my little maid Letty, in a tone of voice that told me she had a favour to ask. " Well, Letty, and what then?" " Oh, nothing ma'am, but, if you please, I should be. glad to have a trifle of money; I know my wages ain't due, but* please I want to help mother to keep Christmas comfortable like, now she's got a house and lodgers." " I like you to think of your widowed mother, Letty,"-was my reply; " but how is it that her taking a house, and having your eldest bro ther's shopmates to board and lodge with her, should make it needful that you should lend her money to keep Christmas?" " Oh, ma'am, some of the lodgers don't pay till after Christmas Day, and mother has many things to buy to make them comfortable, that she'll be paid for afterwards, and then she'll pay me if I lend her anything." This seemed so feasible a story that I cheer fully advanced Letty's wages, and...

THE AUSTRALIAN BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. VOL. II.-1857. " Everything is education: the trains of thought you are indulging this hour; the society in which you will spend the evening; the conversation, walks, and incidents of to-morrow. And so it ought to be. We may thank the world for its infinite means of impression and excitement which keep our faculties awake and in action, while it is OUR Important office to preside over that action, and guide it to some divine result."-JOHN FOSTER.

PREFACE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 3 January 1857
PREFACE. WHERE is the subscriber that would not have closed one of his shutters, if, during the year, a neighbour had rushed in with the intelligence that the BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL had ceased to be? But no such calamity happened. We &nbsp; live, and to-day is the completion of the second year of our existence. "Great age," says some one, " for a 'colonial.' Yes, so we think, and we &nbsp; &nbsp; have come to congratulate, and to be congratulated accordingly. Indulgent reader, believe us when we tell you that it has been a hand to hand conflict with destruction since we last figured in a preface, and believe also that the sacrifices that have been made to sustain life have not been by any means small. But this we had calculated upon in commencing the present volume. In no way has it failed our hope. " Blessed are they who expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed:" so says the proverb. Eventual success will be ample compensation. Still, if in a cash po...

MY RENOUNCEMENT OF KING ALCOHOL. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
MY RENOUNCEMENT OF KING ALCOHOL. THERK was a time, when I could bear thy sway, When my young mind sought what waB bright and gay; When buoyant youth knew not thy withering curse, Knew not the subjects, that for thee did » ride the hearse ! Knew not the foul, degrading minions of thy throne, Who, for thy fiend like life, had bartered their angelic own! Knew not that minds of strength, and noble hearts of pride, By thee were govern'd, and for thee had died! No, no! I knew not then, that thou wert such a devil As to build beneath the brute, for living man a hovel In days of yore, when I could nurse thee as a friend, And think that thou didst in all pleasure blend, I saw thee but as childhood views this life, Void of evil, and all villanous schemes of strife; I knew not then the serpent that my bosom nurs'd, And knew not that who nurs'd thee, would by thee be curs'd ; But as my years grew older, and my thoughts more true, Thy plans and projects I more learned to view, Not as the child i...
