Selections. MR. NEAL DOW ON THE MAINE LIQUOR LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
itlttiiflits. MR. NEAL DOW ON THE MAINE LIQUOR LAW. In course of his speech in the City Hall, at the anniversary meeting of the Scottish Temperance League, Mr Dow said,-It had been said that the Maine Law was a failure. It was not.-Heie was an in stance. There was a man whom he knew very well-a habitual drunkard; for some time after the enactment of the Maine Law, he saw his face continued very red; and he knew he must hare had the means of intoxication somewhere. But, by and bye, he missed him ; and on inquiring about him, he learned about a fortnight, before, this man, Thompson, had told the informant that he found it such a bore to get the liquor that he had given it up. Mr. Dow adduced other cases of the like kind that had come under his observation, showing the satis factory operation of the Maine Law. Throughout the whole length and breadth of the State, generally, a stranger might travel and be quite unable to obtain a single glass. A stranger that he knew of travelled five m...
The Children's Portfolio. THE QUEEN'S PEDLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
Alitortn's JPffrtfoIia. THE QUEEN'S PEDLAR. A GREAT drunkard in the Highlands of Inverness-shire was led to hear a lecture on temperance. He was in duced to become a member of a temperance society. For months the craving of his appetite for strong drink was excessive, but, true to his resolution, he set his face like a flint against every temptation. The marsh of his heart being thus drained of one poison, he next received the seed of the word into its soil. It was hid there until quickened by the Sun of righteousness, and nourished by the rains and dews of the Spirit, when it brought forth fruit in Christian life and character. Having no settled occupation, he yet could not be idle, and having, by the help of a few friends, managed to stock a little box with trinkets and other cheap wares, he set out as a pedlar. In the course of his peregrinations, he found himself at Balmoral, and thinking that if he could get the patronage of the Queen, it would help him greatly, he resolved to ...

Gardening. ONIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
(Sarhninj. ONIONS. The early Strasburg, the white Spanish, the brown Spanish, the white globe, and the royal silver-skinned, are the most suitable. The first is adapted for early use, or for pulling green. The Spanish grow to a large size, but the white globe is the best suited for a general crop. The silver onion is small, and only fit for pickling. The onion requires a rich, light soil, and is sown in drills, so as to be readily weeded ; if for early drawing, nine inches apart, but if for store, about eighteen inches; the beds being from three to three and a-half feet wide. The mould requires to be well prepared, and ashes sifted over it after the seed is sown, and then beaten down with a spade. The ground requires to be frequently stirred round about the plants, and manure from the stock-yard or piggeries" well mixed with earth is the beat for onions. When the onions are nearly ripe, the stems should be bent down upon the ground. As these become withered, the onions should be dra...

$tfrwfo. JUVENILE SCRIPTURE PEARL SOCIETY, Syd ney. JarMs Waugh, George-street. This unpretending pamphlet, by Mr. Buckley Haigh, contains many im portant suggestions worthy the serious consideration of every Sabbath school teacher in the colony, and indeed all who are interested in the well-being and improvement of Sabbath Schools. A very simple and suitable plan for interesting and engaging the elder scholars in Christian work is suggested. OO Some idea of its nature may be gathered from the following extract from the work itself " The chief object of the pearl distri butors' care being those persons only that he may casually meet on his way from school. The change in the scenery, however, will tend to increase rather than diminish his interest and pleasure in ttie work, and to present a wider range for his usefulness. "To carry out this project, it is proposed to form a Society, consisting of the more serious boys and girls in the first Bible classes in every Sabbath School, from...

% HIL ANTHROPY and Benevolence seem to have taken leave of absence p} k, .H for a short time from Sydney. When our Crimean heroes were leaving wives and families unprovided for in* their native land, tens of thousands of pounds came-flooding in for their relief: no noble response is now made to the call from those suffering from the mutiny in India. Guv various city institutions are almost at a standstill for want of funds. The Cathedral, which will eventually be an ornament to our city, has no roof, and cannot get one The new Bethel Church has a roof, but no floor; no minister, and no worshippers; and why? it has no money. Who should care for the sailors? Our merchants, whose servants they are in a great measure, and who reap the first and principal benefit from their labours.

Poetry. HOME AND FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
fflJirg. HOME AND FRIENDS. Oh! there's a power to make eacli hour As sweet as Heaven designed it; Nor need we roam to bring it home, Though few there be that find it. We seek too high for things close by, And lose what nature found us; For life hath here no charms so dear As Home and Friends around us. We oft destroy the present joy For future hopes, and praise them, While flowers as sweet bloom at our feet, If we but stoop to raise them. For things afar still sweeter are When Youth's bright spell hath bound us; But soon we're taught that earth hath naught Like Home and Friends arouud us. The friends that speed in time of need, When Hope's last reed is shaken. To show us still that come what will We are not quite forsaken ; Though all were right if hut the light From Friendship's altar crowned us, 'Twould prove the bliss of earth was thi&* Our Home and Friends around us.
Scenes from a Life Drama. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
>tftus from a fife Drama, BY THE AUTHORESS OF " GERTRUDE, CHAPTER I, " The world is full of cares where'er we tread From pole to pole, the self-same cares are spread." I DO not take up my pen to write my life, to^detail the events of each day, or eten of each year; there will be lapses of ma% years, the occurrences of which I shall suffer to fall into oblivion : they have their record in my own heart; but they are made up of trifles. Yet, are there trifles ? Do not great events spring from minor ones, as the grandest building rises stone by stone ? My mother-how naturally that idea first presents itself in retrospec tively viewing the past-my mother was a woman of great natural endow ments, and descended from an ancient and once influential family, but a fall ing race: to those of her generation had descended only the remembrance of greatness and power, and a high mid noble mind. My father was a genius in the truest sense of the word. To him knowledge ajpea-ed intuitive : effects...

Henry Bardner. CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
(fitrkfr. (Continued from page 76J CHAPTER IV. EARLY on the following morning Henry was awakened by Captain Thrum's gruff voice, calling the crew in any thing but polite terms. He hastily dressed, and went upon deck. It was a dull, drizzlv mornmer. with a stroner breeze blowing from the south west. " A lazy, drunken set of rascals I've got for a crew," said Captain Thrum, in an angry tone, after roughly returning Henry's morning salutation ; " I can't get them to rouse out of their bunks to up anchor, and here's this fine breeze blowing to waste. One of the blackguards came on board drunk last night and brought some grog with him, and soon made all hands as drunk as himself; but I'll keep them on mon keys' allowance for it-they shall whip the cat, or my name is not Jack Thrum! Oh, here they come at last, crawling up like a batch of old soldiers with wooda* legs," he continued, as the sailors slowly emerged from the forecastle hatch, looking much the worse for their debauch over-nigh...
A Voice from the Counter. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
% irae front % Counter. WE were to rise at four in the morn ing on the First of May, 18-, to drive to the English village of G-old enwall. Our old experience had attained to something of prophetic strain ; we therefore judged that the festivities usual oil that day would be celebrated as of yore; and that to ramble in the village field s and mingle in its May day games might prove efficacious in plucking " a rooted sorrow from our brain." When the thought floated 011 our mind, we were engaged in framing estimates of the financial loss into which a disastrous speculation had irrecover ably plunged us. However sweet the uses of adversity may be, it is never theless certain, that the severity of oitr misfortune cut us to the quick. But yielding to persuasion, we tried to suppress thoughts about dishonoured bills-depreciation in stocks-failure of other unfortunate traders less able than ourselves to stem disaster-and depart at least for a day, to the fields a/id hedgerows of charming G-...
