A MOTHER'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
A MOTHER'S LOVE. -1 SOME twelve years ago, the stations in New England, N. S. W., were few and far between. A family lived in a hut full 20 miles from the nearest human habitation. The father, a bush carpen ter, was 40 miles away from home occu pied in his trade, the mother with six children, the oldest but ten years old, and the youngest an infant, was in that cot age in the wilderness. While the mother was occupied with her household duties, the children were all playing together outside, the little girl who had charge of the infant laid him down on the grass for a while to join in the sports of her brothers and sisters. Suddenly a scream of terror from the children called out the anxious mother to see what had happened. A large snake had coiled around the poor babe. Fear paralyzed the children, but the mother instantly siezed her infant and shook off the venemous serpent. The child was sa ved ; but the snake bit the poor woman's ancle. In a twinkling the eldest boy came to his mo...

A VISION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
A VISION. -1 ON that bold cliff-'neath, which with sullen roar, I The great Atlantic laves Australia's shores, | Lulled by the breaking surge a poet slept, And as he slumbered, o'er his mind there crept A vision bright with happiness and bliss As poets dreamings ever are-t'was this . . * . . High on a rock, amid the troubled air, Hope stood sublime, and waved her golden hair, Calmed with her rosy smile the tossing deep And with sweet accents charmed the winds to sleep, To each wild plain, she stretched her snowy hand, To each high waving wood, and sea girt strand, ' Hear me,' she cried, ' ye rising realms record, 'Time's opening scenes, and truth's unerring word, * There shall broad streets their stately walls ex-| tend, ' The circus widen, and the crescent bend, ' There, from thy cities, o'er the cultui*ed land, ' Shall bright canals, and solid roads expand, * Swift flying" trains, impelled by mighty steam, 4 Replace the waggon, with its crawling team, ' There the proud arch, Colos...
Band of Hope Anniversary at Araluen. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
Band of Hope Anniversary at Araluen. THK celebration of the second Anniversary of this society, took place on the evening of Wednesday, 16th ult., in the Temperance Hall. A goodly array of members attended, demonstra ting by their cheerful and happy demeanour the efficacy of total abstinence, and the warm interest they felt in the welfare of the society. The annual report of the committee showed that although the society had made no rapid strides, yet its progress was satisfactory. During the year 61 new members had been admitted, making the total number on the society's books 148. The expenditure for the year, (£27 9s. 7d. of which went to complete the Temperance Hall) amounted to £46 ls. 6d., the receipts to £46 5s. 9d., thus leaving a small balance in the treasurer's hands. The arrangements made by the committee to provide healthful and instructive entertainment for the members had met with much success, the meetings had been very frequent, and the attend ance generally good. The...
CHAPTER XV. PROGRESS IN IRONWORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
CHAPTER XV. PROGRESS IN IRONWORK. Cyrus Loxwood made no lengthened stay in Kent. Airer rambling for a couple of mornings about the fields and woods with Kitty and Josh, and spending two most pleasant evenings in the old bowery parlours, or on the sunny lawn, he return ed to town, leaving the good old major and his man to dress flies and hook fish at will. On bis own part, he had formed a most worthy opinion of these excellent Newbuds, whose hospitality, simplicity, and intelligence, had all been quite to his taste. Yet to the true worker-there is no place so full of enjoyment as the spot where his work lies around him. This was the case with Cyrus, who was never so happy as when quiet in his garret study, or in his workshop with his men, for he now employed two others besides John Olave. What was of further account at this time, a yard and work shops were to let in his own neighbour hood, these pleasantly situated close to the river, and with a field on one side, so hiring them and ...

Look round as though you were quite cool and collected, and suddenly put your hat upon the floor. Turn then to the audience, pass your fingers lightly and gracefully through your hair-and say, ' Fellow-citizens !' extend your right hand-put your left on your vest, on whichever side it is your private opinion your heart lies-swell out your chest as though all the god desses of liberty in the world had left their respective countries, but had taken board and lodging in your expansive bosom, and were now struggling to find their way out at the front-door. Repress their generous efforts for awhile, and then out with them in a blaze of glory, the...

SIGHTS AND SCENES IN SYDNEY, BY EVEEARD EVERGREEN, THE YOUNGER, GENTLEMAN. -* No, IL-THE MARKETS;. I WONDER how the people of Franc« after the Great Revolution-as historian! c ill that anomolous period when Pur« Reason ruled the millions-managed t( do without a Sabbath ? It is true the j kept-and kept after a rare fashion every tenth day a holiday-certainly no a 4 holy-day.' And on each recurring da} of these memorable decades, history tells u¡ of the frenetic freaks, the mad orgies, th&lt; demoniac deeds done and accomplishec by men and women. The goddess of Rea son-the helmitted Minerva-seemed foj the nonce solely bent on evoking the foll} and fool-hardiness-in a word, arousing the evil passions of the nation It must have been hard-very hard foi this great people to have at once at tempted to trample on old associations to snap the golden cords that bound th( present to the past-to sweep away man j grand memories and venerable tradi tions, like so many fragments of cob web...
OBLIGING A FRIEND. A TALE OF THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
OBLIGING A FBI END. A TALE OF THE TIMES. -&lt; . RUINED Î-ruined !-ruined ! ' was the wildly uttered exclamation of Mr. Fleet wood, as he came hastily into the room where his young wife sat embroidering a scarf, and throwing himself at full length v upon the sofa, he hid his face, and lay shuddering like one in an ague fit. The needle work dropped from the hands of Mrs. Fleetwood, and for a moment or m two she sat like one paralysed. Then * rising hastily, she sprang aeross the room, and dropped on her knees beside her husband, put her arm round his neck and said, 'Oh, Edward! Edward! what has happened?' But the only response she received was a groan so full of anguish that it sent a shudder through her heart. .Speak, Edward !' she said. .Ruined !' he replied, hopelessly ruined. 'Oh, Edward, look up! Let me see your face, dear husband.' And she tried to lay her cheek down against his ; but he kept his face turned from her. Very, very pale was Mrs, Fleetwood, as she raised he...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. -* THE OBJECT OF LIFE. A LESSON FOR BOYS AND GIRLS. 1. uome mm me to the sea-shore. On this hand are the high cliffs, on the other the open sea. Now let us look around us. Observe this rock, there is something fastened to it, which looks as if it were growing out of it, like a vegetable in a garden. But though it looks like a vege table, it has no soil under it nor sap to nourish it. It is not a plant, but an animal -the anemone, i. e. the wind flower. But let us leave it, and in six months or more return. There it is in the same cleft, it has not moved, and the only dif ference w§ observe is, that it is larger and thicker than before. I wonder what it has been doing all this time ? nothing but eating and drinking. Now let us see who lives like the anemone- I go into a school, take notice of one class-there sits a child with a va cant eye-he takes no interest in the les son. I go six or twelve months after, and find him there still ; he has made no progress, an...

REPENTANCE. -+ Wine is a mocker, strong drink isra^ing, and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."-PROV. XX. 1, WHO dares to speak, with oily voice, To me in praise of wine, And sing of Bacchanalian joys And days of "Auld Lang Syne," When like a fool without a rule To guide me in life's way, Save drinking And winking, I squandered many a day. The taprooms fishy smell-the brawls And fumes of drunken men, The gaumbling boards and musty walls Of Crib or Devil's den, Shall now no more as heretofore Delude my senseless heart To revel \ In evil And play a madman's part. Green Lodge, near Sydney, Feb. 23. 1859. Accursed be he whose murderous hand, On stormy night and dark, Inveigles to the rocky strand A frail and struggling bark : ¡ I But doubly curst is he-the worst And blackest of his kin Who watches I And snatches A sinner back to sin. Who triumphs in the good man's fall Mocks penetential tears, And jeers insultingly at all The trembling sinner fears Mark well his end ! without a ...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. DEAR MR. EDITOR,-Really it is time you should take some notice of the nast}' habit of smoking indulged in by the gentlemen of Sydney, to so great an . extent. It is a custom which should be at least discontinued in the presence of ladies. The gentlemen are incessantly protesting their great regard and venera- tion for the " fair sex," and yet their devotion to them is not to interfere with their own selfish comforts. Frequently in private houses, some fop will give what he considers a killing smile-and hope smoking is not disagreeable to the ladies, from whom, if course, politeness forces an assenting smile. Unless he receive a positive request to desist he will continue his nauseous puff- ing, sickening to endure, and leaving its horrid fragrance for days ensuing in the room, and on the dresses of its oocu pauts. In the open air, at pic nics, or rambling at Manly Beach, it is barely ex- cusable, and at all times inconsiderate. ? These same gentry will exclaim against...
The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
Cjje Rastrallo ¡ponu Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. -? AMUSEMENTS. HB would take a very churlish view of the world which God has created for human creatures to dwell in, and of God's method of government in it, who should conclude that it was forbidden us to enjoy ourselves. We may very safely reason as to our Creator's evident intentions where we can trace evident proofs of design Our loving Father wills us to be happy, He has constructed us so as to be capable of this happiness, and constructed the world around us so that it can contribute to it. The very consciousness of existence is in itself a pleasure, and the charms of gocial life increase that pleasure. When we indulge ourselves in company with kindred spirits, or with those whom ties of blood have made dear to us, we double our enjoyments; we give back what we receive, and receive again what we give. It is not true to represent this world as nothing better than a howling wilderness. There are times indeed, which come ...

"EVER OF THEE." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
"EVER OF THEE."* - "Ever of thee I'm fondly dreaming, Thy gentle voice my spirit can cheer Thou wert the star, that mildly heaming Shone o'er my path when all was dark and drear, Still in my heart thy form I cherish Ev'ry kind thought, like a hird flies to thee, Ah! never till life and mem'ry perish Can I forget how dear thou art to me, Morn, noon, and night, where'er I may he fondly 'm dreaming ever of thee. Ever of thee when sad and lonely, Wand'ring afar my soul joy'd to dwell Ah ! then I fe lt I lov'd thee only. All seem'd to fade before affection's spell, Years have not chill'd the love I cherish True as the stars, hath my heart been to thee, Ah ! never till life and mem'ry perish Can I forget how dear thou art to me, Morn, noon, and night, where'er I may be Fondly I'm dreaming, ever of thee.

"NOT AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
"NOT AT HOME." * -1 IMRS. Granger, Mrs. Dr. West, and Mrs. lee, all happened to meet at the residence .of Mrs. Grand, one morning. They were fashionable women, and of course making fashionable calls. Mrs. Grand's first impulse was to be . not at home,' as she felt somewhat ?indisposed, but on second thought she contrived to infuse a little animation into her features, and crept down stairs. The ladies, however, were so cordial and chatty that Mrs. Grand did not regret having made an effort. Conversation for once took an unex- pected turn, and instead of wasting ex- clamations upon that Mrs. Upham's extravagant bonnet, or Miss Smith, the little flirt's new moire antique, the theme was, ' Not at home.' Mrs. Granger declared she could see no harm in such a very little white lie, for in one sense people were not at home-to company I She found it a most conve- nient excuse for bores, and if she had a headache, or wanted a day for herself, she did not scruple to use it. 41 shall remember ...
