THE PRIMROSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

THE PBIMROSE. 0, the Primrose! O, the Primrose! The golden and gay, Unfolding your petals In the beams of the day y 'Neath the hedgerows,-in gardens, Hound the old mossy stile, You grow in rich clusters, In the sunlight you smile. We may gather them, We may gather them, When glittering with dew, And twine them into garlands With the violets blue; We may wreathe them with the daisy, With the cowslip and the bells, Of the creeping convolvolus. That grows in the dells; Or the lilly, and the camomile, That grows far and wild; And there is a garland For the brow of a child. We may wreathe them With the snowdrop, With the crocus and rose, The fuschia, and the hyacynth, E're the tiny bells close ; With the myrtle and laurel, That grows far and wide, And there is a garland For the brow of a bride. But of wild flowers so maaiy In all their gay bloom, There is none like the Primrose Speaks the language of home ; And here as you flourish 'Neath Australia's blue skies, Who then can wonder That ...

COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

COLONIAL NEWS. FLOOD AT GUWDAGAI.-Swollen by khe late excessive rains the Murrumbidgee has been gradually rising the past week, attaining its full height on Saturday last, being then within two feet of the inunda tion of disastrous memory; the flats were, of course, entirely submerged, and all commnnication stopped, a perfect sea rolling between the rival townships. Mr. William Burt has just succeeded in bringing safely to the colony, per Ardmil* lan, eight horses, and twenty-seven rams, wbich we believe we are fully authorized in saying is one of the finest importations of stock yet made.-Carcoar Diggings : These diggings appear to be gaining a character. Though they have not as yet been extensively worked, they are producing the precious metal with some regularity. -? A lad named Slaven, 10 years of age, son of a settler residing at Gullen, was at his sister's place, about a mile from where his father lives ; there were a number of dogs racing about with each other, and one of the...

THE BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

THE BELLS. BY E. A. POE. HEAR the sledges with the bells Silver bells! What a world of merriment their melody foretells! How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle, In the icy air of night! While the stars that oversprinkle All the heavens seem to twinkle With a crystaline delight; Keeping time, time, time, In a sort of Runic rhyme, To the tintinabulation that so musically wells From the bells, bells, bells, bells, Bells, bells, bells, From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells. Hear the mellow wedding bells Golden bells! What a world of happiness their harmony foretells Through the balmy air of night How they ring out their delight; From the molten-golden notes, And all in tune, What a liquid ditty floats To the turtle-dove that listens, while she gloats On the moon! Oh, from out the sounding cells, What a gush of euphony voluminously wells! How it swells ! How it dwells On the Future ! how it tells Of the rapture that impels To the swinging and the ringing Of the bells, bells, bells, Of...

We have moved off now, down into a beautiful spot in Whilshire, where there is a gentleman's seat, in the midst of a gentleman's park, surrounded by a gentleman's tenantry, and inhabited by a perfect, unexceptionable gentleman. He is not old, for he has just come of age: h e is not gouty, for there never was such a delicate little boot upon any foot but a girl's ; he is not ugly, if he were, the balls for twenty miles round Latson Towers (the name of his house) would have seen it, and fallen through.

CHAPTER II. Joyce. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

CHAPTER 11. Joyce. She had borne it-a long, long while -faad poor Joyce Claymore. A few months ago, it was quite a new thing to Joyce not to hear kind voices, and to see pleasant faces. But those few months seemed to her a long, long while; for she had not had anything gentler than a curse, nor anything brighter than a scowl, since last February, and now it is December. Joyce had been well off once. Her father and mother were so happy, and comely, and prosperous a pair as any in Arland, down in Shropshire. Till one day, when everybody else was failing in business, because of a railway mania or a number of large firms ' coming down,' as they called it, of course her father failed. And Joyce had said to him one evening, as he sat and brooded between his wife and daughter-'You'll come and see me, father, some day, in London, won't you ? and if mother comes, all the better. But come, cheer up, for the last night, do, dear, father.' And she went, and sat herself on his knee, and put her ...

CHARDES, &C. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

C H A R A D E S, &c. I. The sun was struggling thro' a fleecy Teil, To cast abroad its life-essential light; As on their march across a rocky dale, A swarthy band of first appear'd in sight. With lips compress'd and firmly knitted brows, Along the dense and lonely woads they pass'd; Ab breezes caught on high their fearful vows, To plunge their country in my cruel last. 'Twas done-the sun has seen its face in blood, And many a sin-defiled and wretched soul, Has wing'd its way-unfit to meet its God; Since first began to wage my savage whole. £i Ki II. A chill cold wind flew shrieking past, All shudder'd who stood expos'd to the blast; Beneath that gloomy sky Deep clouds of dingy black uprose, Sufficient warning giving those, Who gaz'd, that first was nigh. In deepest danger barks were placed, Where second's fearful course was traced, Upon the treach'rous wave; Loud cries from trighten'd mortals rise, Imploring mercy of the skies, From threat'ning death to save.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF THE CAESARS. AUGUSTUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF THE CAESARS. AUGUSTUS. FEW of those men who murdered Csesar died a natural death themselves. Al most every one is known to have either been killed or to have destroyed himself. Soon after the death of Caesar, a great battle was fought at Philippi; and before it took place we are told that Brutus one night saw a spectre in his tent, though probably he only dreamed of it. He had been too anxious in mind tosleep much, and generally arose about midnight to read and study till morning. It is related that in the dead of night, when the whole camp had become quiet, Btutus was reading by a lamp which was just expiring, when suddenly he heard a noise, as if somebody approached, an«j, looking towards the door, it stood wide ; open. A gigantic figure of a frighfal aspect gazed at him with silent severity, and Brutus is reported to have asked, ' Art thou a demon or a mortal? Why ' comest thou to me V * Brutus,' answered the phantom; ' I am thine evil genius! T...

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

ART AND SCIENCE, HOBSB RAILWAYS.-Mr. G. F. Train," of New York, has proposed a system of horse railways for Liverpool on' the American plan. The time seems ap proaching when the introduction of some facilities of this description will be witnessed in all large European towns, and the method may possibly be promoted by a contrivance lately brought forward by a Mr. Curtis, for enabling carriages to pass off and on a line of rail at pleasure. There are five city railroads in New York operating on a total length of 44 miles, constructed at an aggregate cost of 1,000,000 dollars, which pay dividends of from 6 to 12 per cent., and are alleged to have carried 84,000,000 passengers in the 1858. At Boston and Philadelphia the plan has long been resorted to, and the busy people of all these cities would, it is believed, view a return to the old condition of traffic with as much sur prise as a retrogression from gas to oil.

Mr Craig gave a statement of his ex perience in travelling as a Teetotaller, shewing the few bad effects he sustained from rainy weather, though he is much exposed to such vicissitudes of climate.

A Traveller between life and death ! The reason given, the temperate will, Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill; A perfect woman, nobly planned, To warn, to comfort, and command. WORDSWORTH. MB. GLAYNKL was right in his COL" jecture as to Miss Martin's reception o* his news. She did not meet the com munication in any very placid mode ; nor was her subsequent explanatory inter view with her father characterised by any great appearance of filial affection. The spoiled child could not be expected to be the self-denying woman. But in a few days her feeling of active resentment wore off, and, finding that it was well to take the matter quietly, she began to consider how she could best make her self comfortable in her altered circum stances of life. From more than the considerat...

GOOD POINTS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860

GOOD POINTS TN HOBSBS. 11th-The head should be properly sus pended from the neck. There are three ways -first, a right angle; second, an acute angle; third, an obtuse angle. Of all the three, the last is decidedly the best, provided that the angle has d kind of stay passing from head to neck, and giving the part a bulged appearance beneath. Horses of the first and second st&tify are, in general, more showy when rein&d up, but they never possess so mtish power, and from these two classes come ! many roars-that is, diseased appara tus at the head of the windpipe: cer tainly the obtuse are very often heavy in hand, but this, perhaps, depends more on mouth than angle of head and neck. 12th-The neck should be long and tapering gradually from its union with the head to where it joins the chest: this gives length of muscle and in creased power. It should also be made wedge-like from above, down the thinnest part upward, and the mane pliantly hanging from it. This shows puri...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTO PAPUAN POD ARGUS, (Podargas Papuensis). AUSTRALIA appears to be the head quarters of the larger members of the Genus Podargus, of which this species may be considered an example. The subject of our engraving is found at Cape York, and is a similar bird to that which exists in New Guinea, pro bably the same species. This is the largest specimen of the former yet dis covered, the beauty of the marking, and the extreme length of tail render it one of the most graceful. It is a light brown, beautifully marbled .on the under surface, with large blotches of white. The male has the whole of the upper surface marked with greyish white, brown and black, presenting a very close resembl ance to some of the' larger kinds of moths, the lighter tints pre vailing in some parts, ; and the darker in others. Some of the wing feathers are marked in the form of bars, and of redder hue, ftps of others white, forming irre gular bars across the wing ; tail very similar, the markin...

Which it should have been, and the bride should have been the corpse; and oftentimes she wished it bad been so, and bitterly she wept while wishing.

VISIT TO THE B U RR A BURR A. - » IN anoient days, that is some ten years since, a journey in South Australia was an event to be cautiously undertaken, no line of railway had then smoothed the difficulties of travel, but the rough bush road and rough bush carts only, were to be used. I took a trip to the Buria Mines in the year 1850; and I will re cord some of the troubles I had to endure. It was winter, and a very wet winter as usual in Adelaide. I think for two months there had been no settled sunny day. I could not stay for fine weather; but one muddy morning I took my seat in the mail, which was an ordinary spring cart with two wheels and three seats, to carry eight passengers and the driver; no covering whatever; three horses were harnessed to it, and at a signal from the driver, away they bounded, splashing through the mud of Ilindley-street, and so into the bush. It was just noon, and a faint glimmer of sun gave us some hopes of nne weather; the mail was full of passengers, t...
