HINTS FOR HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 July 1860

-w - HINTS FOR HOMES. SOBSTANCES SWALLOWEn B'S CHILDREN INJUDICIOUS TREATMENT.-Now it is ne cessary to mention the regular error often pursued in such cases, evidently without thought, by parents or those having care of children, when any article has been swallowed ; and this is the plan of flying immediately to the use of castor oil or x other aperients, with the intention no doubt of thereby quickly expelling the said article from the system. Now, nothing is so injurious ; it is, in fact, as I \ have had occasion to mention elsewhere, \ one of those popular acts and prejudices ! so prevalent that lead persons to do the very opposite of what they ought to have done. When the accident occurs give \ the child a piece of bread and butter, and be cautious, moreover, so long as the article continues in the body, so give the patient very little to drink. The reason is simply this-that the article thus gets * imbedded in the substance thus produced )( and is disposed of in due course, and...

CHAPTER XXXVI. BOTH CROSS AND CROWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 July 1860

CHAPTER XXXVI. BOTH CROSS AND CROWN. Many circumstances tended to advance ( the great social question of a better f house accommodation for the people with those whose influence and means were adequate. But though the general bearings of an important matter such as this serve, when apprehended to move to action the enlightened, there are not a few who need the stimulus of more \ special motives. This was the case with worthy Mr. Newbud. So long as the question remained a general one, how ever ably discussed in his hearing, or in the newspapers he daily read, he was comparatively uninterested and in credulous, but when once the matter came home, as it were to him, in the misfortunes of one of his workmen, the case was wholly different. He had seen his foreman's beautiful child, admired her innocence and beauty, and when he came to know, as he eventually did, the story of her abduction, and how that j ( abduction had been planned months ? j before, and in a large measure brought about...

CHECK TO THE KING. AN HISTORICAL ANECDOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 July 1860

CHECK TO THE KIXQ. AN HISTOBICAL ANECDOTE. -» MOHAMMED THE SIXTH, King of Grenada, was raised to the throne in 1396, in despite of the claims of Yusef, his elder brother. As a measure of pre caution, therefore, he immediately con signed his brother to the prison fortress of Salobréna, where for twelve years he pined in a hopeless captivity. At the end of that period Mohammed was seized with a fatal illness, and being desirous to assure the succession to his son, resolved to remove from his path his sole com petitor. Accordingly he addressed the following order to the Governor of the fortress : . Alcaide of Salobreña, and my servant, -Immediately that you receive this writing from the officer of my guards, Ahmed-ben-Xarde, you will put to death the Cid Yusef, my brother, and send his head to me. I rely upon your zeal in my service.' When Ahmed arrived at Salobreña with thig gentle missive, he found Prince Yusef playing at chess with the Alcaide, j who had no sooner read the fatal man...

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

SCREWS. IN the manufacture of screws, women are greatly employed, even to the pro portion of ten to one ; and of that one portion many are boys. In one factory, screws from the smallest required for the nicest instrument, to the heavy bolt screws for mighty steam engines, are made. The forging is of course done by men. Coils of wire of different thickness are used-these are prepared by being forcibly drawn through smaller and smaller holes, until of the thickness required. One end of a coil is presented to a machine, the end is seized and drawn forward, snipped off the proper length, and falls, hot, into a pan of sawdust. It is in this department that most of the accidents occur, boys who look away from their work are likely to lose the ends of their fingers. The heads of the bits of steel are stamped by machinery, and delivered over to the women to polish, at which work they earn from five to twelve shillings per week. The screw's head is presented to a vice, which seizes it and ca...

But his mother less child had grown up in her luxuriant home, proud and overbearing, with a narrow soul and an untrained mind, and this the ...

- I PET PERENNIAL S.-Np. XII. BY PATTY PARSLEY. -i CHAPTER I. » The truth, the truth, the glorious truth ! Search about, search about, till ye find it. OLD SONG. ' HEIGHO! for a cushioned chariot and two prancing steeds. Methinks it were a gallant throne to mount!' The speaker was a queenly-girl, whose every look 1 and motion betrayed the proud heart within ; her head arched, her lip quiver ed, and her eye sparkled as she spoke. She was lovely undoubtedly, but her loveliness would never have satisfied any but a surface-gazer : any other would j have missed the shade of thought from that smooth, bright brow, its depth from that radient eye, and its emotions * from that ruddy well-cut mouth. And she whom she addressed was a small slight figure, with a head bent in thought over her book till nothing but the drooping brown curls was visible. But there is no need for the little head to be raised : nought is hidden but a pale face, dull grey eyes, and a large and by no means delicate mout...

She was a virago of the first orden Some of O'Connell's friends thought he coull beat her in the use of her own weapons, and he professed his readiness to encoun ter her, and even backed himself for the match. O'Connell com menced the attack. 'What's the price of this walking stick, Mrs. what's your name ?' * Moriarty, sir, is my name, and a good, one it is ; and what have you got to say again it ? and one and sixpense's the price of the stick.

-? - CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. THE GATHERED FLOWER. 'DOES dear marama feel inclined for a walk this afternoon ?' said Emily R-, a beautiful girl of twelve summers. 'Do come, dear marama, and tell Jane to ask papa to join us upon his return ' Mrs. R-had been an invalid many years. She had resided in Sydney, but owing to her bad state of health, Mr. R-- had purchased a beautiful sea-side villa not many miles from the city. He was one of the best of husbands and fathers ; but, alas ! he lacked ' the one thing needful.' Many and earnest were the conversations he had concerning his soul with his once beautiful and still much-loved wife. Two of his dear little ones had been transplanted to the garden above at the early ages of one year and two-and-a-half years old, but when af fliction is not accompanied with the Spirit of God, the heart of man is seared .-not softened. It was thus with Mr. R-: the death of his children had for a time led him to think seriously of the uncertainty of life, and...

LETTER FROM A FRIEND. j Sydney, June 21st, 1860. i MY DEAR ARTHUR, Australia is far away from England, so far, perhaps, that you can scarcely imagine that we, in this far off land, think often of you in connection with your dear brothers and sisters ; yet it is so, and for two years we have not ceased to pray for you day by day-not sepa rately-but as a family; and since the arrival of last mail, bringing the good tidings from aunt Kate, that you had given your heart to God, yoar name has been breathed with a prayer that having thus joined your name to the people of God, you may go on rapidly in the bright, but narrow pathway, straight leading to the skies. 1 should like you, in answer to this, to send me a full ac count of your conversion and present attainments in Divine knowledge, and your thoughts and wishes for the future. You will not remember much about my self, yet perhaps enough to feel that no idle curiosity prompts me to make this request, neither is it to read the heart s...

ALL ROUND THE ANTIPODES. AND TAHITI, VIA PANAMA AND THE UNITED STATES, TO ENGLAND, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 July 1860

ALL ROUND THE ANTIPODES. AWD TAHITI, VIA PANAMA AND THE UNITED STATES, TO ENGLAND, BT CHARLES EDWABDS. WEDNESDAY, Mav 24th, and the an niversary of her Majesty's natal day ; but as we are now on board of an American ship, you must not expect any demonstrations of loyalty to our British sovereign. We are now in sight of the island of Morea, and let me point out those water-spouts to you ; they gradually expand as they are nearing the clouds, while the part nearest the sea retains its cylindrical form. Tahiti as we approach it, looks like a chain of very high mountains ; we are stearing round the island now, and the gulf we are entering, as well as the harbour, is called Papeete ; our colours are hoisted, and the signal is fired for a pilot ; under his guidance we enter a narrow passage, commanded by a small battery, groups of natives and Europeans can now be seen on shore ; there are about a dozen vessels at anchor in the harbour, viz., three French men-of-war, two Yankees, three Eng...

THE KANGAROO HUNT; OR, A MORNING IN THE MOUNTAINS, ' BY CH ABLES HARPUR. UNDER the grey dawning skies,   Behold a knot of Hunters meet   On the grassy swell of a gentle rise, All sprinkled about with saplings slim Or fringed with the wattle so golden and sweet, And backed by the Forest that, dreamy and dim, Looms out from the log where it thinnest lies ; And thrown from which the eye commands Clearings (a) and cultivated lands, With rude-wrought homesteads islanded, Or farther forth some new-built shed : There a knot of Hunters meet ! All unincumbered are their hands And fitly shod their feet ; While furry caps their temples grace The trophies of many a former chase. t And there is the man of England,-fair His visage, and composed his air ; And there is the sinewy Scot, with eye That calculates incessantly ; The gayer son of Erin too Is found amongst that jolly crew, And now he jests, and now he sings, And loudest there his laughter rings : But with them mo...
