WATER THE BEST LIQUID. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
WATER THE BE3T LIQUID. BY JOSEPH PAYNE, ESQ. A POET who sang in the olden time, And lived in a classic quarter ; Declares iu his beautiful flowing rhyme, That the best of liquids is WATEK ! He honoured the land, where he loved to dwell, Ar.d many fine things re taught her; Bur he did the most good when he wrote to tril, That the best of liquids is WATER.! It keeps the head clear, and it keeps it cool, It is good for both son and daughter; $ Ol health and of strength lis the golden rule, That the best of liquids is WATER ! Then Christians hold fast to the temperance cause, Stick to it like " bricks and mortat; " And say without doubting, or fear or pause, That the best of liquids is WATER ! But seek to win others by love's mild trne, Don't haig tnem, or draw or quarter; For none by abuse may be brought to own, That the best of liquids is ^ATER !
JUVENILE SMOKERS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
mwmmm SHI&lt;DO&8 BOY'S 5 We have a word to say to you, and we say it not in anger "but in love. Will you listen1? We tell you then, that you should not smoke, because smoking is injurious to health. Such is the testimony of medical men, and among them are many of the wisest and the best. Dr. Bush, a good, kind and benevolent, as well as a great man, says-"Tobacco, even when used in moderation, may cause clyspepeU, he&datfhe, tremors, and "vertigo." That tobacco in any form is a slow poison, working its deleterious effects upon the system, is proved by all experi ence. But you say you feel quite well, and it has done you no harm. So Says the gin-drinker - he says he drinks because it does him good ; and in both cases the poison is so insidious; that its victim is ripe for the grave ere he is a aware that the workjof death is commenced. But you have seen aged men who have been all their lives addicted to its use. It is true that some may have escaped its ravag...
DOG LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
DOG LAWS. Eveby summer thejpoor dogs suffer in our city not merely from cruel boys, but by laws and ordinances which require all stray curs that are unmuzzled to be killed. A correspon dent, whose pet dog was a victim to such a law, takes part with the " doggies," and barks at the dog-killers, thus: If a eat may look on a king, a poor dog may drop a word to those in authority. Please, sirs, why am I chained ? Why am I muzzled ] Why is p, death-writ issued against me? I am not mad, most noble fathers. I am only a poor littl# dog, but i can put my paw on my heart and declare thst I have always tried to do the best J know how ; and can folks with souls say Hint} I wonder 1 Because one dog bites a man and makes him crazy, and he dies, why must all dogs be hunted down, muzzled and murdered ? ifow there "are men with their two legs and souls who make folks crazy, and cause them to die awful deaths too-howling and raving and cursing; why don't you muzzle them, your honors ? They don't bite...

To Our Readers. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
To Our Headers. F COURSE it becomes a *' New Arrival" in this important Colony, in mak ing his introductory how, to do so with considerable modesty and respectfulness* We most fervently hope in so doing now, we shall exemplify our acknowledged duty to your satisfaction. Like too many afloat around, We present ourselves in an atti tude of solicitation. 'We ask for sup port, fully conscious too of dependence upon it, even for existence ; but at the same time in full hope of being able to give such a return as shall not only re&lt;* lieve us from the obligation of mere de pendants on charity, but provoke from you the acknowledgment that at least our obligations are mutual, if not uftu mately, that the claim for gratitude is on our side. Notwithstanding this hope, however, we should have felt some apology needed were we coming forward in rivalry to some previous occupant of the ground on which we intend to stand. But Jtis otherwise, our ground is clear, and being so, is inviting...
Private Prayer. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
Private Prayer. HAVE some sacred spot consecrated to the worship of God. Have set times for it, with which nothing must be allowed to interfere. Read God's Word as though you heard him speak to you in the sacred page. Kneel before God, and make full surrender of yourself to him; thank him for the mercies you have re ceived ; confess your sins; plead for pardon through the blood of Jesus; and ask him to give you suzh blessings as you can see and feel that you need; not forgetting to inter cede also for others. You can do nothing well without God's blessing; and you cannot expect his blessing without asking for it. Everything will go wrong when you begin the dagr without prayer j and when you come to neglect it altogether, soon your feet will be caught in the " snare of the fowler."

AAAAAHHHKNPZTEP. No name of nation, or of place, I, by these letters mean ; But if you do tliem rightly trace, And put each letter in its place, A word will then be seen. To know whgt word these letters spell, Read your Bible and that will tell, And when you've searched the Scriptures round, It only once can there be found. We copy th?, above from a Foreign Sunday School Paper. In our next we will insert the solution, giving our readers in the mean time an opportunity, if they please, to ex ercise their ingenuity in attempting to discover it.
SGHG OF THE DECANTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
SGHG OF THE DEC ANTES* There was an old decan ter, and its mouth was gaping wide ; the rosy wine had ebbed away and left its crys tal side ; and the^wind went humming humming > up and down the wind it flew, and through the reed-like hollow neck the wildest notes it blew, I placed it in the window, where the blast was blowing free, and fancide that its pale mouth sung the queerest strains t0 me. "They tell me-puny conquerors! the Plague has slain his ten, and war his hundred thousand of the very best of men, but 1"-'twas thus the bottle spake-" but I have conquered more than all your famous conquerors, so feared and famed of yore. Then come ye youths and maidens all, come drink from out my cup, the beverage that dulls the brain and burns the spirits up ; that puts to shame your conquerors that slay their scores beloLW ; for this his o eluged mil lions with the lava tide of wo.

PREFACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
PREFACE. THE timepiece is wound up for the first time, with majestic sweep the pendulum performs the first stage of its journey; arid though it registers the fact with a tick, yet so impressed is it with its responsibility, that it stays not one instant to congratulate itself, but eagerly presses on to the next point. Figure after figure on the dial plate is reached, but it hesitates not. A revolution is accomplished; the music of its hammer reports progress, still it does not loiter to listen to the music it has created. With wondering haste, sternly resolved upon accomplishing its mission, it presses onward and rests not, till released from the weight of its trust. Progress as ceaseless and unwavering should mark each movement of the machine of life. Such would we' desire to be characteristic of the existence of the BAND OF HOPE REVIEW. At the commencement of the year 1856, our little timepiece was drawn up for the first time. It was naturally expected that it would soon be out of...
LOST! LOST! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
LOST! LOST! LOST. Yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two goldenjiours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone for ever. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. SIR,-Would you allow me through the medium of your journal, to make a tew re marks with reference to the Bands of Hope, the objects, &c., which they have in view, Viz., the preservation of the young from vice, and the leading or retaining them in the paths of virtue. The objects are good, men must applaud thein; Heaven must pronounce them good. Whilst there is but one opinion with refer ence to the object, there is a variety of opinion as to the means to be used in attaining that object; for instance, Temperance is, and has generally been held to be the fundamental principle ; its basis, its superstructure, its all. A man, however good a Christian, is not thought fit to ^ffork on theii committees, nor to take any part in its operations, and tem perance or teetotali...
Honesty in Business. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
Honesty in Business. | Two brethren were riding in a waggon one day; th" conversation turned on the manner of doir»g business, j " Brother," said one, " if we would succeed in store-keeping, we cannot be strictly upright in every little thing. It is impossible. We could not live." " It is contrary to religion not to be upright," replied the other. " Honesty is as much a part of religion as prayer, or reading the Bible. A man may pray and read the Bible, and yet if he be not strictly an honest man, he cannot be a religious one." " I don't know about that j we mast live-that is my doctrine." ** But you pretend to be a Religious man, don't you ? You are a professor its Weil us I am." "But we must live. I shall break down in my store if I do not shave a liltle." " And you will be more likely to break down it you do. I tell you, my brother, honesty is not only a part of re ligion, hut it is the best policy too ; atul 1 will venture to say, the man who is honest will succeed better in his...
A Chldl's Thoughts on War. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
A Chldi's Thoughts on War. A GENTLEMAN spoke to his family of the horrors of war. Not many mornings after, he heard his little boy talking to himself whilst lying on his bed. The father listened and heard his child repeat over and over again the following lines, the untaught production of his little poetic mind: " Awful, awful, awful, Murder, murder, murder, Lay down thy sword, Lay down thy spear ; And help to fight no more. . They have to DIE themselves, Thou need not KILL them, then.
THE SUNDAY SAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
THE SUNDAY SAlfc. J?IVE persons, bent on having a " day of plea sure " gaily stepped into a hired boat at the Quay. Whilst in the harbour, a sudden squall caught the sail and capsized the boat. Two men and their wives found a watery grave. A boy was the only one of the Sabbath-breaking party who was saved. The following extract of a letter from the survivor supplies some painful details : " As I am the only survivor, 1 will doubtless be expected to relate the heart-rending scene, which is as follows :-On Sunday morning, at seven o'clock, myself, and four others left the harbour, in a small boat, with sail. We had got a little drinkl before we started, but what might be called sober* Unfortunately, how ever, we carried with us a pint of whisky. The management of the boat being committed to one who was a sailor,we thougt ourselves safe. But not so. When we reached a certain point, the sea being rough, and the mati being in an intemperate condition , owing to a divide of the whisky pre...
