CHARADES. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
C HARADE S. My first, is the most rapid traveller known It s loss, causes many their fate to bemoan. My second in various sizes is formed ; In plainest of fashions or richly adorned, My whole is a boon to ships homeward bound, To mark where a haven securely is found. II. For sailors most useful ingredient my first; My second is passed upon outlaws accurst; My third winds gently with rippling- .sound, Noar many large rivers is frequently found, My whole is the scene of sadness and riot Where temperate treatment alone will give quiet, A boon to all'ctsd ones, loag >nay it stand To save and to help in this fairest Land. III. My first is an element of constant use Yet somewhat fickle, and subject to abuse; My second Australia can charmingly shew, In her harbours, her mountains, and valleys, rich glow; My third where ships can safely ride, And from the stormy Ocean hide, My whole, is Sydney's progress, shewing Repairs great ships for Neptune's blowing.

PREFACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
PREFACE, + IT is with no small feeling of pride and gratification, that we find ourselves inditing our FOURTH Preface. In the face of all the complex difficulties attending the path of Colonial Literature - difficulties never understood by the uninitiated-we have still held our course, and arrived at the completion of another volume. We beg to tender our best thanks to our literary friends for the able assistance they have rendered us through the year. During no former year have we received so many fovourable notices of the work, and we feel that these compliments, in a very large measure, are due to those whose genius and talent have been so generously plaecd at our service. To cater for the various tastes of our ever-increasing circle of readers is no light matter. We scarcely can expect to please them all in every particular; but we know that they will look favourably upon any failings they may discover, and still hold out to us a friendly hand. Of the coming year we need say but...
A CHRISTMAS REMEMBRANCER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
CHRISTMAS REMEMBRANCER. Dost thou remember Eveline; The Christmas long ago When wintry winds blew loud and cold The ground was white with snow, A happy throng were clustered round; The fire-lighted hearth, The tale of merriment was heard The song of careless mirth. 'Twas there I *iet thee Eveline, So young, and gay, and fair With holly berries twined amid Thy curls of golden hair The genius of the Christmas time, Didst thou appear to me And in that merry evening hour I gave my heart to thee. I led thee to the festive dance ; Thy touch my bosom thrill'd The glances of thy dark blue eye» My heart with rapture fill'd, I mark'd the blush upon thy cheek I heard the falt'ring tone, And on that happy Chrismas night I won thee for mine own. Again 'tis Christmas, Eveline, And we are happy now Although perchance youth's earlier fire Has left each thoughtful brow, But thou hast sooth'd my many cares And cheer'd the path of life ; I bless the by-gone Christmas night, When first I met my wife. A...

LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
LUCY'S LET T E R. DEAR MB. EDITOR*-~I have a great mind to be very angry with you for pub lishing my name. I nearly fainted when I read it in your last number. I am sure every one will know me now, and I shall walk out in fear and trembling. I pro mised to send you a letter each number, and will do so, because, in my opinion, you have shamefully neglected the ladies. You go prosing on, with sketches and papers, vastly interesting no doubt to the gentlemen, but what is there for the ladies ? Until you introduced the charades -nothing. In despair of seeing anything for my ill-used sex, I have offered you my ser vices ; and as I have been to England, I may, perhaps, be able to afford them some information and amusement. The gentlemen I don't seek to amuse; they, of course, will skip over my letter with a pooh! pooh ! of indifference. I must give you credit for your article in the last number about New Year cus toms in New York. I think it a very pretty idea for the ladies to sit at hom...
LEAVES FROM A CHRISTMAS TREE. OR, THOUGHTS THAT HANG ON PLAYTHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
LEAVES FROM A CHRISTMAS TREE. THOUGHTS THAT HA.XG O.V PLAYTHINGS. At Christmas-time, in the society of children, every one is presentable, hut more especially he who comes laden wrth presents. Whipping makes a humming-top go spinningly enough ; but it is thrown away on boys. Xerxes, after his ship was wreck ed, flogged the sea ; but we never heard of the sea having taken a moral turn from that moment. Drums, partake of the quality given by Napoleon to the English soldiers, for therjr never know when they're beaten. Pleasure is but a ball that a child runs after so long as it keeps rolling, but which he kicks away from him the moment it stops. It is pleasant to see a green old age, like a Christmas tree, comfortably boxed up at home. It is pleasant to see its trunk bent bent beneath the weight of riches, surround ed by a host of happy children. Jt is pleasant to see it stretching out its hospit able arms to all, as though it were anxious to embrace the entire party. It is pleasant to...
MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. VERY particular business required my presence at the inland town of Well ington, and I was compelled to leave home just as the Christmas festivities were about to commence. The case, however, admitted of no delay. I there fore quitted Sydney in the mail for Bathurst on the evening of December 22nd. After the usual quantum of jolts, and jars, and hair-breath 'scapes, we reached Bathurst. I was only a new chum, and struggled hard to conceal my discomfort from my fellow passengers, lest I should meet with ridicule, for they were evidently well used to the shocks of the mountain roads. I had still a hundred miles to travel over. On the morning of the 24th I took my seat in the Welling ton mail, a solitary passenger, having the promise of a good night's rest at a town called Molong. The weather was delightful, our horses rattled along merrily, and at noon, though very hot, I was in excellent spirits,when we reached the pretty town of Orange or Blackman's ...
THE NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
THE N E W YEA R. With song and dance, with joy sincere, With tranquil gladden'd hearts We welcome in tiie new bom year E'en as the old departs Let all who witness now the birth, Of this new year still soar, With hope above the ills of earth And hoping grieve no more. The new year, the new year, Brings joy within it's train, The new year, the new year, We welcome in again. If in the year, that's pass'd away, Unhappiness we met We in the one that's born to day, All sorrow should forget; The anguish that did sadly steal, Our hopes and prospects o'er, Tho1 still in mem'ry we may feel, Their force we'll heed no more. The new year, the new year, Brings jov within its train, The new year, the new year We welcome in again. STKELPIN

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. " COME with me, Harry, I've made all the arrangements, and we shall be sure to frighten them." " But, Willy, I am afraid it is not quite right; do you not think we are doing wrong ?" " Wrong ! what wrong can there be in it! we are not going to hurt any one ; what nonsense!" Harry was the elder, and Willy yielded to his influence, and went with him. This conversation occurred on a beau tiful evening in December, at a house a few miles from Sydney. A large party of juveniles had been entertained by Mr. and Mrs. Sutton, the parents of Willy, whose sister's birthday was the cause of the merry-making. Emily Sutton, a laughing blue eyed beauty, completed her tenth year. As the two boys ceased speaking, they withdrew from the assem bled children, who were busily engaged in a game of forfeits. Night had closed in, but sleep was banished from their merry eyes. Little Emmy was the gayest of the gay, and her parents were delighted to hear the silvery laughs that echoed th...

TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
TO OUR READERS. OUR wondering senses would fain make us doubt the reality of our present proud position,-but 'tis not a dream, for here we are, sitting in our editorial arm-chair, trying to coax our puzzled pen to compress within the limits of a leader the grateful language of our overflowing hearts to our many kind friends for their generous patronage and support to our humble, but we trust useful, little journal during the past year. 'Tis not a dream, but a happy, gratifying fact, that we are about to commence the fourth year of our literary life (a prodigous age for an Australian periodical), and after our many desperate struggles for bare life, and all our gloomy fears, and dismal doubts, lest' our tiny barque should founder in the turbulent waters through which we have steered our course with nervous hand and anxious heart, we are here at this auspicious season to comfort ourselves on our many hair breadth escapes from shipwreck, and to thank our numerous supporters for their a...
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
CTS, FUN, AND FANCY. THE secret of genius is to suffer no fiption to exist for us; to realise all that we know; in the high refinement of modern life, in arts, in sciences, in book?, in men, to exact good faith, reality, arid a purpose; and first, last, midst, and without end, to honour every truth by use.-GCETHK. IN former times it was a maxim that a young woman should not get married until she had spun herself a set of body and table linen. From this custom, all unmarried women were termed spinsters -an appellation they still retain in England in all deeds and legal proceed ings. ONE of twin brothers died ; a person meeting the surviuor, asked, Which is it, you or your brother, that's dead. Boy, where does this road go to ?-I doan't think a goes anywhere. I always sees un here every morning. THE most quiet place I know, said Z&kiel, is Woodville, in Mississippi; there's no quarrel or rowdyism, nor light ing in the streets. If a gentleman in sults another, he's quietly shot...

A DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
A DREAM. I imagined myself in my native valley, and that a rumour had circulated that ic was to swallowed up by an earthquake. A man had passed through the village, it was said, at evening, and in haste, and nad cried aloud, in the ears of all he met, the tidings of approaching doom. His name no one knew, but his appearance seemed that of a wild bard-of one who, like the hermit Brian in the " Lady of the Lake," the child of the spectre, might have been let down to the ledge of a cataract in the skin of a white bull, and whose hair had, ere morning, been blanched by the terrible visions which had visited his slumber from that "hell of waters" thundering beside him. tie disappeared as mysteriously as he bad come ; but methought the impression of his words was such, that on the morning of the forefated day all the inhabitants got up as one man, and left the region. I joined the throng; but after travelling with them for a few miles to the eastward, I turned aside, and went up alone to ...
CHAPTER XI. MORE OF THE TADCASTEB'S HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
CHAPTER XI. MORE OF THE TADCASTEB'S HOUSEHOLD. We have already said that no one knevr anything of the history of the Yorks prior to their occupation of the jeweller's first-floor. They were Londoners, and had lived in London all their lives, was quite evident from many circumstances. Indeed, Mrs. York had admitted as much to Mrs. Tadcaster; but beyond this and a few such simple facts, that will be come current in every homehold, tlieir history was a blank. They had taken the Tadcasters' lodg ings late one Saturday evening, had paid a week's rent in advance, and saii they were leaving their then abode on account of railway improvements that would necessitate their house being pulled | down. They then gave their address in | a distant street in the Borough, and be came Mrs. Tadcasters' lodgers that same night at a very late hour. Many worldly possessions did not incumber them; a very small box, a few books, a roll of music, constituting such moveable riches as came with them in a cab....
