AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTCRY YELLOW LEGGED SPOONBILL. Platalea Flavipes.—GOULD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HIS TV ¡/¿I VD NE Y)' YELLOW LEGGED SPOONBILL. ^-T^-^ Platalea Flavipes.-GOULD. THIS bird somewhat resembles the Ibis ia plumage and form, but its habits are entirely distinct. lt is in disposition shy and distrust ful, and a con siderable degree of caution is necessary to ap proach it within gun-shot. It is occasionally met with singly, but more generally in pairs, or small companies of six or eight. When not oc cupied in procur ing food, which they do by skirt ing the edge of lagoons, or by wading knee ' deep amongst grass and rushes; they maybe seen reposing on the dead branches of the highest trees growing near ; frequently stand ing on one leg, with the head drawn back, and the bill resting on the breast. When thus 4 situated a near approach to them is impossible. The rainy and luxuriant season which followed the draught of 1839, brought to this colony amongst other rare birds, numerous flocks of this species, in fact so plentiful were they that there was sca...

ALL ROUND THE ANTIPODES, AND TAHITI} VIA PANAMA AND THE UNITED STATES, TO ENGLAND, BY CHARLES EDWARDS. ONCE upon a time a French author, not unknown to fame, was, through sick ness, confined to his room ; poor fellow ! he tells us in his little work which, I dare say. many of the readers of the * HOME COMPANION' will recollect as a school-book, bound together with the 4 TSxiles of Siberia,'-how he used to hobble on his crutches, from his couch to the book-shelf, and from thence to the table, he was such a while making the circuit of his chamber, that it became a journey to him, and he resolved upon publishing an account of the adventures he encountered in these travels; he called his book * A Journey Round my Boom.' Since then, Charles Dickens has revived the title, and after him came a host cf others, my humble self amongst the rest, with the difference, that whilst Le Maître occupied from fifty to sixty pages of close print to walk over his ' room, I shall travel over half the wor...

ENGLISH CUSTOMS IN INDIA. A Ta» fact I believe to be nevertheless, that the incidents of the mess-room to be often the staple conversation of the , bazaar. I saw once an eatract which ^ purported to be a translation from a native journal, giving an account of a party at one of our stations, which was somewhat to this effect-that a great assemblage of Sahibs and Mem-sahibs had been held at Mr. B-'s in order to eat and drink wine, and dance together. That they all sat down at table, where there i was a large piece of pig {ham), which not j only the Sahibs, but the Mem-sahibs, j devoured, taking it several times over; and that having eaten many other dishes and swallowed much wine, the ladies went upstairs to recover themselves, but the gentlemen remained below, and drank till they began to shout at each other and to make great outcries, calling each others' names and crying out, when the man whose name was called stood np, and then putting their feet on the tables, and waving their gl...

JELLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

I JELLY. Jelly is another article of diet in great favour with nurses and friends of the sick : even if it eould he eaten solid, it would not noxirish, hut it is simply the height of folly to take half-an-ounce nf gelatine And make it into a certain hulk by dissoMng it in water and then give it to the sick, as if th em ere bulk represented nourishment. Tt is now known that jelly does not nourish, that it has a tendencv to produce diarrhoea, and to trnst. toit to repair the waste of a diseased con stitution is simply to staive the sick under the guise of feeding them. If one hundred spoonfuls of jellv were given in the course of a day. you would have given one spoonful of gelatine, which spoonful has no nutritive power what ever. And, nevertheless, gelatine con tains a large quantity of nitrogen, which is one of the most powerful aliments in nutrition : on the other hand, beef tea may be chosen as an illustration of great I nntritient power in sickness, co-existing ¡ with a very smal...

HINTS FOR HOMES. THE SWING AS A CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

?-w HINTS FOB HOMES. THÉ SWING AS A CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. As American physician recommends the gymnastic as a preventative and cure of pulmonary disease. He says-'Sus pend the body by the hands, by means of j a strong rope or chain, fastened to al beam at one end, and at the other a stick three feet lone, convenient to gra^p with the hands. The rope should be fastened to the centre of the stick, which should hang six or eight inches above the head. Let a person grasp this stick, with the hands two or three feet apart, and swing very moderately, at first-perhaps only bear the weight, if very weak, and gra dually increase as the muscles gain strength from the exercise, until it may be freely used from three to five times daily. The connection of the arm with the body (with the exception of the clavicle with the sternum or breastbone] being a muscular attachment to the ribs, the effect of this exercise is to elevate the ribs and enlarge the chest ; and as nature allows BO vacuum, the l...

-« CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. THE FATAL RACE. j ABB JIOU going out to night, George ? I said Mr. Syneton to his son one evening after tea, as the servant was engaged re moving the tea things. .Yes, fath3r ; I promised Mr. Barnsley to ç*H upon him this evening.' * George, with my consent you shall not go ; he is a thorough man of the world, and it is dangerous for a young man of your disposition to be much in his company.* * A.t any rate, he s nr»t worse than his neighbours : and I think him a jolly, kind-hearted fellow,* returned the son. < Well, my son, you are of age now ; I cannot force your obedience ; may the Lord direct and guide you.' There was something like a sneer on the face of that young man as he passed from the presence of his father. Satan î had already shown symptoms of his work of destruction in the bud. As he strolled towards Mr. Barnsley's dwelling, he thus soliloquised-4 What right has father to tell me-a young man-where to go and where not? He has such ant...

The Australian Home Cimpanion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL THE SABBATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

C|e Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL THE SABBATH. IF there is one subject among what may be termed the politic-moral institutions of our country, about which we feel at all times a more lively interest than another, it is in the preservation of the integrity of the weekly day of rest. The ' Sabbath' is the glory of our land ; it is the pbstratum of our national greatness ; it is the principal ingredient of our superior physical power-the great element of our moral and intellectual superiority among the diversified populations of the world. We contemplate then with a feeling of inexpressible pity, almost of contempt, the individual-be he whom be may, and sustain whatever character in society he may-who would attempt openly to overthrow, or insidiously to subvert, this great palladium of our social happiness as English men, and our moral dignity as Christians. If there be one question more emphatically than another the poor man '«question, it is the Sabbath question...

BAPTIST NOEL AND THE KECENT PRIZE FIGHT. i A THE Hon. and Rev. Baptist Noel has jost published ' A letter to the noblemen and gentlemen who attended the fight between Heenan and Sayers.' Mr. Noel deals leniently with Sayers and Heenan ; it is for the spectators he reserves his , censures, and of them and their tastes he says;-'To go fifty miles and to pay three pounds in order to witness the intense sufferings of others, while sitting one's self at ease on a comfortable chair, enveloped in a warm wrapper, and then, after lolling in an easy carriage, to laugh over a good dinner at the end, seems to me a process adapted to form an effemi nate ruffian. A ruffian, because every man is a ruffian who takes pleasure in the sight of suffering ; and an effeminate ruffian, because the indulgence of the appetite for horrors is in these eil cum stanqes. accompanied with no danger, and , no hardship.

CJjt Australian ponu Comßiuticn, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL POLITICAL ECONOMY. j, THIS is a subject but little entered into, and, perhaps, less understood than any that engages ordinary attention. Still it must be admitted, that in its fullest sense it deserves continued consideration. At first sight it may appear a dry one for study, yet we are acting, or attempting to act, upon it every day jj of our lives. ¡ Giving it its full range, it equally concerns the rich and poor-the humblest voter and the greatest representative. The statesman, and even majesty itself, cannot afford to throw it aside. It touches on our liberty, our laws, our institutions, our habits and customs ;-in fact, all that we see, eat, drink, or use. * Our health and raiment-our character, habits, and nationality-depend j chiefly on political economy. . j If we consider the present situation of the people of this country and that I of their forefathers-if we contrast our present homes with their comforts, to | the ...

CHARADES, &C. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 July 1860

I -» I CHARADES, &c. T. The glassy stream was lit with silver fires, That from the bright rob'd queen of evening fell ; As morunful breezes turn'd their trembling lyres, And murmur'd faintly down the distant dell. The silent stars towards the earth they glanc'd A labyrinth of forest-branches through; And on my first a rich reflection danc'd, Of million lights-enshrin'd in crystal dew. But where my next my deeper gloom had thrown, Or closer round their emerald mantles spread ; The rays that fired the meadow never shone, And lonely darkness brooded down instead.^ How thrillingly old Nature's minstrels played, To what delight their music woke my soul ; As by the placid river's bank I stray'd, And heard the echoes stealing thro' my whole, II. When back retires the ebbing tide. My first is often seen ; Along my seconds sandy side, I The slimy rocks between. The sunny waters of my whole, i They wash the beaches near, ! Wherp stands a town that erows in size. Much larger every year...

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 July 1860

ART AND SCIENCE. I AT the last sitting of the French academy, M Boutigny, in a note, endea voured to show that the expression com monly used of ' the spheroidal state of liquids * was erroneous, and calculated to give a false idea of the molecular state of matter. He observes that it is by no means necessary that a body should be in a liquid state in order to assume the spheroidal one : and that he has made chloride and nitrate of ammonia, the bichloride of mercury, camphor, iodine, stesrie acid, wax, tallow, Ac, pass directly from the molecular to the spheroidal state, fie move especially calls the attention of the academy to a curious fact in corroboration of his theory, viz, that if small pieces of ice, the weight of a few grammes only, be operated upon, and they be thrown on the back of the hand, partly in a liquid and partly in a solid state, two different sensations will be felt in a very short time : first, a strong heat(98 deg, centigr, 208 Fahr.), and afterwards an equally ...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTOR[?] NEW HOLLAND DARTER. Pelotus Novce Hollandioe.—GOULD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 July 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORÍfí^^ NEW HOLLAND DARTER. Pelotus Novce Hollandio.-GovLV. THIS singular bird is found only in New South Wales and South Australia, where it is thinly dispersed in all situa tions favourable to its habits, such as the armlets of the sea, rivers of the interior, extensive water-holes, and deep lagoons. Sly and secluded in its habits, it usually takes up its abode in localities unfrequented by man ; it seeks its prey in the water, dives with i the greatest ease to the bottom of the ^ deepest ponds, and is as active in this element as can well be imagined. It in general swims with a considerable portion of the body above the surface, but upon being disturbed immediately sinks below the water, leaving only the head and neck to be seen, and which from their form, and the motion caused by swimming, present a close re semhlance to those of a snake. Its food consists of fish, aquatic insects, newts, frogs, &c. After feeding, it perches on a snag oí some falle...

But pleasure or joy can never live In the sin-consnmed abode, It is hard in that wretched place to strive For a rest at last with God. Down in a dreary unhealthy street, Where pestilence strides midday, Crime ever entices the wayward feet Of the drunkard's child away. i In rags, where wretchedness reigns supreme, Sits the being he vow'd to love, Oh, is it a maddening fearful dream, Great God ! of the worlds above ! Nay, it is no dream, more fiercely wild ^ The startling mirth appears, Blows heavily fall on her helpless child, And its father's voice she hears, Cruelly cursing its crush'd young life, tHf And vowing that life to take, Then the mother cries, 'mid the noise and strife, ' Spare, oh spare, him for my sake.'
