NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. MARTIN L.-A volume for 1856 will cost 8s. lOof. by post. JUNO.-For poetry to be worth publishing, it ought to be very good. We cannot say that of the piece sent. If F.

SiDNEr: Printed by F. M. STOKES, 8, King-street East (opposite the Supreme Court).

Kent was not present according to previous announce ment, owing to the very unfavourable weather. The evening was very agreeably passed in singing, addresses, and recitations. Mr. Kent's lecture must stand postponed to a future occasion.
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
OUR MESSAGE. SOMETIMES we wonder whether anybody cares for anybody, and then we try to persuade ourselves that there is nobody that does, and that it is all labour in vain to try to get anybody to care whether there are three inquests all in one column in the Herald with verdicts " Died from intemperance," or not, and then we resolve not to care ourselves. A gloomy glow of inward revenge then fills our breasts against those who should take part with us, and we think how sorry they will be at the determination we have come to, and we sip with satisfaction of the sweet thought that we won't relent, that we'll be deaf to all entreaty. Then all at once this delightful hallucination is dispelled by the startling question-who's going to entreat ? Who cares a button for you ? Who would take the trouble to ask after you if you were gone ? And there and then we determine that we won't go-that we'll live in spite that we'll care for ourselves, and not care for anybody; and we resolve to go on...
INTOXICATING LIQUORS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
INTOXICATING LIQUOKS. (75J USTRALIA, both in soil and climate, is well adapted for the cultivation of the vine. This, however, like many of the earth's productions, has been turned aside from its legitimate use. When a man follows nature, his wants are few and easily satisfied. In following her simple laws, he only follows the dictates of reason, and the Divine precepts of revelation. Never would the depraved taste and artificial appetites have existed, if man kind had not turned aside from the sane and open path of duty. In man's vitiated desires and corrupted inclinations, we find the origin of intoxicating liquors. The term most commonly employed in the Hebrew Scriptures to denote intoxicating liquors is, yayin; in Greek, oinos; in Latin, vinum; in Spanish and Italian, vino; in French, vin; and in English, wine:-these being all so many forms or variations of the same word. The proper signification of the original Hebrew seems to be something pressed or squeezed out; and is thus d...
PASSING THOUGHTS ON BANDS OF HOPE. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
PASSING THOUGHTS ON BANDS OF HOPE. No. II. IT is an old adage that " what is worth doing at all is worth doing well," and, in our opinion, a thing is done well when it is done as well as the means at disposal will admit. You cannot build a palace out of a heap of materials laid for a peasant's hut, no matter what your ideal may be. The castle may be sketched in the air, but you will find that you cannot work to the plan. The not recognising this truth has often been the cause of bitter disappointment: many admirable schemes have been abandoned because they did not quickly realise the anticipations of their pro jectors, which, if only slowly and fairly worked out, would have been produc tive of great benefit. In forming a Band of Hope, great re sults must not be looked for in little time. If tended constantly and carefully, a gradual development can be traced, and any degree of perfection ill time be ob tained, but the hind of perfection must depend wholly upon the materials em ploye...
ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
ARALUEN. The following is an extract from a letter received from the secretary of the Araluen Band of Hope: ---- "I am happy to say, we are pro- &nbsp; gressing slowly, but surely. Already the fruits are seen, in the decrease of intemperance, and the loud complaints of the publicans." We may add, that Araluen is one of the Braidwood diggings.
Old Caleb. (Author of "Annie Leslie," &c. &c.) A CONSULTATION, AND WHAT THE NEIGHBOURS THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
Caltlr. BY MRS. BEDFORD, (Author of "Annie Leslie§c. £c.J (Continued from, page 74.J A CONSULTATION, AND WHAT THE NEIGHBOURS THOUGHT. " I CANNOT tell what we shall make of our dear Frank," said Bachel to Caleb one evening: "I do not think he is strong enough for fanning. What can we make of him ? he is quick at his learning; do you think he would make a parson ?" This was said in half jest, half earnest. " Is that your ambition for your son ?" said her husband, smiling. " Where am I to get the money to make a parson of him, and how do you know that he will be able to preach ? " "I do not fear his being able to preach," said Bachel proudly; for the fond mother saw no reason why her darling should not preach as well as the rector himself. " But perhaps if we made a parson of him he would grow proud and not know his parents ; it was only a foolish thought of mine. No, no; I should not like to see him in the pulpit." "You need not fear," said Caleb, smiling; " but I think he had better ...
Poetry. THE PAWNBROKER'S SHOP. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
Ifltiro. THE PAWNBROKER'S SHOP. lis oaturaay nignr, ana tne cniu rain and sleet Is swept by the wind down the long dreary street; The lamps in the windows flicker and blink, As the wild gale whistles through cranny and chink; But round yon door huddles a shivering crowd Of wretches, by pain and by penury bowed ; And oaths are muttered, and curses drop From their lips as they stand by THE PAWNBROKER'S SHOP! Visages, hardened and seared by sin ; Faces, bloated and pimpled by gin ; Crime, with its plunder-by honesty's side; Beauty in ruins, and broken-down pride; Modesty's cheek crimsoned deeply with shame; Youth's active form, Age's fast failing frame, Have come forth from street, lane, and alley, and stop Heart-sick, weary, and worn, at THE PAWNBROKER'S SHOP ! With the rain and the biting wind chill'd to the bone, Oh ! how they gaze upon splendour, and groan ! Around them-above them-wherever they gaze, There wete jewels to dazzle, and gold to amaze! Velvets, that tricked out some bea...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
®tn ftigljis in a §ar-^oom. (Continued from page 79.^ SY T, S. ARTHUR. JUST at this moment the outer door was pushed open with a slow, hesitating motion; then a little pale face peered in, and a pair of soft blue eyes went searching about the room. Conversa tion was instantly hushed, and every face, excited with interest, turned to ward the child, who had now stepped through the door. She was not over ten years of age; but it moved the heart to look upon the saddened ex pression of her young countenance, and the forced bravery therein, that overcame the native timidity so toucli ingly visible. " Father !" I have never heard this word spoken in a voice that sent such a thrill along every nerve. It was full of sorrowful love-full of a tender concern that had its origin too deep for the heart of a child. As she spoke, the little one sprung across the room, and laying her hands upon the arm of Joe Morgan, lifted her eyes, that were ready to gush over with tears, to his face. " Gome, fat...
The Dismal Swamp. (A true Story.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
(A true Story.) BY THE REV. GEORGE MACKAY, KIAMA. PERHAPS many of those who read this paper have recently read Mrs. Stowe's late work, Dred, a Tale of the Dismal Swamp. That tale is full of interest, and I trust the time is speeding on when, by means of such exposures, American slavery will come to an end. The dismal swamp was to Dred and many others a secure resting-place. There they were hid in safety ; and from it many of the refugees escaped to a land of freedom. Now I am to tell you-especially my young friends -of a swamp of a different description from that of the fugitive slave's hiding place. The place, and the facts about to be narrated are more dismal than aught that human slavery can exhibit. The place of which I am to speak is not a refuge, but a moving, bottomless bog. It is a swamp in reality, in which no green resting-place can be found. And in order to illustrate to you, my young friends, what I mean, I may tell you that not far from my residence there is a swamp of ...
Band of Sope Intelligence. THE TENT. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 March 1857
Band of Hope Intelligence. THE TENT. THE Band of Hope Meeting at this place is carried on with difficulty, the secretary reporting that little or no assistance is rendered him in its ma nagement. We feel that those living in the neighbourhood, who are inte rested in its welfare, need only be reminded of this, for a different state of things to exist. Feb. 24. - Mr. Rucker gave a lec ture on "The History of Australia." &nbsp; March 3. - Singing and recitations occupied the evening. 10. - A lecture was given by Mr. W. J. Allen. Subjec t- "Honesty is the Best Policy." March 17 .- A Temperance Meeting will be held. 24.-Continuation of "The History &nbsp; of Australia."
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
PITT STREET. The attendance upon the lecture on " Chemistry," on the 18th of March, was larger than it has been for some time past, (about 240). The number of experiments prepared were far in excess of the time for preparing them; they will be eligible for a future occasion. March 25.-Recitations occupied the evening. April 1.-'The Arctic Regions,' by Mr. T. West, illustrated by drawings. 8.-Temperance Meeting.
Selections. THE MEDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
kktiom THE MEDAL. " W hat have you in your purse ?" I asked a little hoy. " My medal. I always keep that in it ; don't you want to see my medal ?" and William handed me a round bright piece which looked like gold, although I do not suppose it was, hut it had golden words inscribed upon it: on one side, " Tobccso tends to idleness, poverty, strong drink, vice, I ill-health, insanity, and deathon the other, there was the figure of a boy I with a very resolute expression upon | his face, treading a hunch of tobacco leaves under his feet, and saying, " I will never use tobacco in any form." A capital resolution, I thought. Wil liam keeps the medal in his purse, and what is better still, he sticks to its principles in his conduct. But as good principles are sometimes assailed, and his companions may try to make him believe that smoking and chewing are manly and commendable accomplish ments, every time he opens his purse the medal stares him in the face, re minding him of his principles, ...
INDECISION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
INDECISION". During a violent storm, a trading vessel was driven upon a high rock on the western coast of England, and im mediately became a total wreck. Many of the crew perished, but the captain and his wife were providentially enabled to reach the rock, and clam bering up it, to escape from the waves. But all danger was not yet over. Their place of shelter was a crag, sepa rated from the mainland by a deep channel, where the sea rushed with terrific violence between the rugged cliffs on either side. The cold was in tense, and they had neither covering nor shelter. The tide was rising ra pidly, and night was drawing on. It was plain that unless prompt assistance was rendered they could not hope to survive. Happily they were descried from the neighbouring shore, and a boat was immediately launched to attempt their deliverance. For the boat to approach the rock was found utterly impossible, and the only alter native was,* to project a rope towards them from the shore by means of a r...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
OUR MESSAGE. IN looking through our cabinet of curiosities in this issue, we notice, that the light of our lantern has been turned upon a rock of some importance, and one on which many have split, that of the comparison between temper ance and religion; the ray that falls upon it is feeble, but sufficiently strong to point out its bearings. Another pen commits to our keeping the memoirs of a youth, who, as he floats by us in fancy should speak in deep-toned warning, of the woes that intemperance brings in its track. We could wish that others of our readers who have the ability and material at command, would make the attempt to put to paper sketches of scenes and circumstances coming under their own observation, holding up for an instant the curtain that shades some drama of sorrow known but to themselves-silent arguments drawn from the living present for the world's good. Not in the language of empty compliment, but in very truth, we con gratulate the Alliance on its successful open...
TO DRINK OR NOT TO DRINK?—THAT IS THE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
TO DRINK OR NOT TO DRINK?-THAT IS THE QUESTION. NE of the greatest mistakes ever fallen into by either the friends or opponents of Temperance, is that of instituting a comparison between the so-called "cause of Temperance" and the "cause of Religion," and endeavouring in this way to estimate their respective value. Why you might just as well compare the value of religion with the value of the grocery business! How is it possible to compare two things that have no essential points in common-not only entirely different in degree, but perfectly dissimilar in kind ? What connexion is there between religion and the traffic in an article of daily consumption ? What can that which you eat and drink necessarily have to do with religion ? It is connected with it in one sense, and so is the science of astronomy or chemistry, or the building of ships-but no farther than that they form parts of one great whole. The men who take upon themselves to decide whether the traffic is a dangerous and de...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
itnrg darhtr. THE subject of this little memoir was well known to many persons now in Sydney, although they may be ignorant of his fate, and may not recognise him in the assumed name which I have chosen. If this distressing narrative, which is substantially true, should have the effect of warning and saving even one youth from a similar dreadful down ward course, I shall be more than repaid for my trouble in writing it-and that it may have that effect is my earnest prayer to God. A long residence in this colony has made me, alas! too intimately acquainted with the horrors and miseries caused by intemperance, and could I but nar rate all the terrible cases of suicide and frightful deaths, and depict but a tithe of the wretchedness, poverty, disease, and crime, which have come under my immediate notice from the same cause, I think they would aid those worthy men who are now so actively exerting themselves in the cause of Temperance ; but respect for the feelings of the surviving relat...
