The Broken Wreath. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
Hire Iwluii BY MISS ELIZA THOBP. I HAD a home once, a happy home, where love a id peace reigued, and plenty dwelt. Many years have passed away since then, but memory is still faithful, and often lifts the veil which I would gladly draw over my early recollections, and points to the home of my childhood and youth, and brings vividly to my mind's eye every dear form and face that once lived there. But now they are gone, they have crossed the valley of death, and are gone to a brighter, a happier home, where sorrows can never enter, where tempests cannot beat. I shall see them here aa more; but ere long, I hope to see them again in that happier home which can never be taken from them. I am now alone-the last bright spirit that bound my affections to earth, is also gone-the beautiful pearl is taken from the casket, and is added to myriads of others which adorn the Crown of my Redeemer. I will endeavour to give you a sketch of the history of my loved ones, hoping that it may not be unint...
"Merry Christmas!—Happy Christmas!" [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
How it flew from one laughing lip to another!-trembling on the tongue of decrepitude ; lisped by prattling infancy, and falling like a funeral knell on the ear of the grief-stricken! Little busy feet were running to and fro, trumpeting the fame of " good Santa Claus." The pretty blue-eyed maiden blushed, as she placed her Christmas gift on the betrothal finger. Yes, it might have been ten times colder than it was, and nobody would have known it, everybody's heart was so warm. See that great house opposite ! How bright the fire-light falls on those rare old pictures: on marble and damask and gold and silver! Now they are decking a Christmas tree. Never a diamond sparkled brighter than those children's eyes. 'Tis all sunshine at the great house. Kathleen sits at her low narrow window. She sees it all. There are no pictures on her walls; though she has known the time when they were decked with the rarest. There is nothing there now that the eye would look twice upon, save the fair sad ...

Poetry. A MOTHER'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
MOTHER'S LOVE. A. Mother's Love-how sweet the name I What is a Mother's Love ? A noble, pure, and tender flame, Enkindled from above, To bless a heart of earthly mould; The warmest love that can grow cold: This is a Mother's Love. To bring a helpless babe to light, Then while it lies forlorn, To gaze upon that dearest sight, And feel herself new-born, In its existence lose her own, And live and breathe in it alone: This is a Mother's Love. Its weakness in her arms to bear; To cherish on her breast,, Feed it from Love's own fountain there, And lull it there to rest: Then while it slumbers watch its breath, As if to guard from instant death ; This is a Mother's Love. To mark its growth from day to day, Its opening charms admire, Gatch from its eye the earliest ray Of intellectual fire ; To smile and listen while it talks, And lend a finger when it walks: This is a Mother's Love. And can a Mother's Love grow cold ? Can she forget her boy ? His pleading innocence behold, Nor weep for gr...
The Dying Boy's Reason. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
3Bd|t*s Urasmr. "WHAT is the matter? What is the matter ? " said I to a neighbour who was looking, with a very earnest face, in a direction in which I saw many people running. " A dreadful accident has occurred," he replied. "A poor boy has just had his back broken by the upsetting of a cart." I determined not to run with the multitude to the scene of painful inte rest, but to visit the lad when the people had dispersed. On the following day I went to see him. I was much depressed and saddened as I entered the cottage. There was great disorder and confusion; but I had hardly cast a hasty glance at the scene around, when my eye rested on the mother of the suffering boy. She was evidently stunned and prostrated by the heavy blow. Her eyes were red with grief, tears were ptill running down her cheeks. A few qi her neighbours were standing around, ready to afford their sympathy and help; and they were silently weeping with the mother. t( Blessings on the tender heart of woman/' thought ...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
tnrg darker. ( Continued from page 392 in Vol. IT J ON Sunday morning Henry opened his eyes with an undefined sensation of dissatisfaction and depression. He felt eonscious that he was about to do a wrong act^-that he was deliberately rushing into sin and temptation ; gladly Would he have remained at home for the day, but he had promised to go, and, alas! he dreaded the scoffs and reproaches of his thoughtless com panions more than the anger of God for transgressing His holy laws-so he sprang out of bed and hastily com menced to dress, as he soliloquised, " If I lay there thinking about it I shall soon be afraid to go; that memorable sermon is always ringing in my ears, I almost wish I had not heard it! Well, I here make a solemn promise, that after this I will go on no more excursions on the Sabbath. I'll resist all their attempts to-day to make me break my promise to the Dominie, of total abstinence. I'm determined upon that, and Somers has already agreed to abstain foi the day. "...

itltttifllts. u GOD," says Elder John Jones, of Syd ney, " is one eternal roundor, in the words of Orson Pratt, an " eternal series which, in plain terms, is eternal nonsense; for to have a series you must have No. 1 to begin with, and that which has a be ginning is not eternal. But if God be " one eternal round," then there has been an " eternal generation of gods "-which is the Mormon doctrine, and thus the idea of one self-existent Being is a fallacy, and our Bible is a book of lies.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
MERRY CHRISTMAS! In old England, Christmas is celebrated when the ground is probably thick with and the trees are bending beneath their winter clothing of snow- the rivers and the ponds are frozen hard, and covered with merry groups &nbsp; of boys and men sliding and skating. All along the street are seen signs of Christmas fare.; the grocer fills his windows with the requisites for plum pudding-far famed as the only legitimate Christmas pudding ; the butcher exhibits huge ribs of beef literally encased in fat, and decorates his clean sanded shop with holly-the English holly, with its bright red berries; and then the poulterers and fruiterers, how attractive their stalls look ! prize turkeys, of incredible weight, geese kept for Christmas, and only to be killed at this high holiday; and see &nbsp; the evergreens-the ivy, and the fir palm, and the beautiful holly, and above all, the mistletoe-held holy by our Druid forefathers, now to be hung over the door and in the ...
PREFACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
PREFACE. THAT Australia should have a literature of her own is generally admitted, and accomplishing the feat of completing another volume of an Australian periodicaL, we have the honour of doing something towards the realisation of so desirable an object. Fortunately for this noble colony it is not inundated with reading that is vile and impure, such as we meet with in the mother country. This advantage brings with it a duty to every individual who wishes well to his fellows, to promote the spread of that which is good and useful. To supply a class of reading at once entertaining and instructive, is been the design of the BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL ; its peculiar merit, that of having the articles original and colonial, only such are selected as give taste and variety to the whole. In looking over the table of contents, supplied in the present issue, we feel it will bring to remembrance many pleasant readings that the JOURNAL has afforded during the year. It has ever been our care to imp...
Loans. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 2 January 1858
Loans &nbsp; A LOAN is an entrusted possession, to &nbsp; be returned or repaid. When not limited by any stipulated term of con- tinuance, it may be reclaimed at the volition of the owner ; and its tempo- rary use generally implies a favour, or obligation of gratitude. Strictly speaking, are not all our earthly gifts loans ? We are accus- tomed to speak of them, as if their title was inherent in ourselves, yet their unannounced departure often &nbsp; corrects this error, and discloses the tenure by which they are held. All history is but a field to illustrate the shadowy nature of ambition's honours. Multitudes who, by virtue, or valour, laborious service, or haz- ardous enterprise, deemed themselves wealthy, or secure of popular favour, have been made examples of its un- certainty. Thus was Aristides, in his banishment, and Socrates, under the chill of the hemlock, and Columbus, in his sequestration at Valladolid, and the fallen Wolsey, in his remorseful adm...
Anniversary Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 16 January 1858
BEFORE we shall have issued another number of our periodical we shall have kept the seventieth anniversary of our colony. All look forward to this day with pleasure, and when it comes keep it as a holiday ; and we think it is one of the most festive times in Sydney. What with the regatta, and all the other ways the Sydney people have of amusing themselves, it would be a * Thc names of those who have already forwarded subscriptions for this year will be published shortly. wonder indeed, if this colonial birthday were not a day of mirth. Gloriously do our American brethren keep their fourth of July, the day on which that vast country declared her independence, and in that declaration laid the foundation of her present greatness-pity, is it that there should be the one blot on her flag-that the stripes of her slaves should cry shame on her vaunted banner, bespangled with stars and stripes. Bat the American must keep another anniver sary of the day when that little band of puritans land...
English Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 16 January 1858
THE anniversary meetings of the Alli ance were held ia Manchester, on Wednesday the 14th October. The proceedings of the day were opened by a breakfast at half-past eight a. m.
