PET PERENNIAL S.—NO. XII. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 August 1860
PET PERENNIAL S.-No. XII. BY TATTY PARSLEY. CHAPTER III. "What is it all?-an ancient rhyme, Ten thousand times besung That part of Paradise which man Without the portals knows "Which hath been since the world began, And shall be till its close. ANON. BESSIE'S reading appeared destined to interruption that day, for scarcely had she reached her own room when a note was put into her hand, the perusal of which brought several conflicting hues to her cheek. ' The gentleman said he would wait, for perhaps you might wish to see him, miss. ?Very well, Jane. I will go down.' She started to the glass, not to smooth her hair (a lady's usual purpose), but to calm her face into its former placidity, if possible. I suppose it was not quite so, for thare was a red spot on either cheek as she entered fhe drawing-room. He who came forward to meet her, was scarcely more than a youth in appear ance, certainly not more than twenty years of age, but with marks of more than ordinary character upon that t...

HINTS FOR HOMES. OPERATING UFON FOWLS. THE treatment of domestic fowls under disease being confessedly difficult, and the result of the medicines usually re commended being very uncertain, per haps the following statement may prove useful to some of your readers. Pro bably many a valuable hen might be saved by the operation to be described. Qtie of my hens which had been laying regularly for a few days suddenly stopped laying, moped about in corners, and her plumage became rough and untidy. Sht fed pretty heartily, but her crop seemed to pass little or no food" into the stomach, and became daily larger, and bad a puffed appeaiance. As the bird speedily be came weak and appeared likely to die shortly, I determined upon opening the crop exteriorly and extracting its eon tents. I did this by making a slit about li inch long with a pen-kife, cutting freely through to the inside I found a large quantity of grain and other food, and also a large piece of glass about 1£ inch long, jagged, ...

®Ji? Australian Hamt Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL ARM!-MAKE READY! WAR still impending: the drum and the trumpet have scarcely ceased to stimulate men to strife, than the noise and bustle of preparation in the arse nals of the great European States awakes anxiety and forbodes fresh outbreaks. Another sanguinary contest threatens Italy, if not all Europe, incited and embittered with religious opinion and religious dissention. Disraeli's 'Warning Voice' has been raised in his celebrated speech on the Representative BiH in the British House of Commons, wherein he pourtrays, with a masterly hand, the French Empire-' A great military nation, match less in valour, with public organisation more complete than any that has existed since the days of ancient Rome; abounding in the resources of men, money, and military materials ; and so enamoured of glory that it has freely bartered freedom for fame-no longer conceals her thirst of general empire. In the days of Lous XI4V., Europe was f...

Whew !' sighed Solomon again, 'what a sombre panorama is before me of slip pery slates, nodding chimney-pots, rain washed walls, and greasy-looking church steeples. The winds have all run wild, and, like a mad-house fall of maniacs just broken out, are playing funny freaks with everything; now upsetting a weak chimney-pot-now rolling up the lead on my neighbour's house like a raspberry sandwich, and sending a shower of shin gles into his back-yard ; then trying to upset that baker's cart, bread, and boy too; and playing hundreds of tric...

SCENE IN AN AMERICAN COURT. Judge: Bring the prisoner into court. Pete: Here I is bound to blare, as the spirits of turpentine said when it was all afire. * We will take a little of the fire out of you. How do you live ? I.-I ant par ticular as the ooster said, when they axed him if he'd be fried or roasted, . We dont want to hear what the oyster said, or the turpentine either, what do you follow ? Anything that come's in my way, as the locomotive said when he run over the little nigger.-We don't care anything about the locomotive. What's your business I That's various, as the cat said when she stole the chicken off the table. That comes nearer the line. I suppose al together in my line as the rope said when it choked the pirate. If I hear any more absurd comparisons I will give you twelve months -I am done, as the beefsteak said to the cook. Now sir your punishment shall depend upon the shortness and correctness of 'your answers. I suppose you live by going round the docks !-No, si...

» PURSUING A WIDOW UNDER DIFFICULTIES. THE Bucyrns (O.) Journal tells the following, which is readable as a romance. The editor was prompted to ' perpetuate' it, by observing in a Pittsburgh paper, the marriage announcement of a couple who formerly resided in Bucyrus. ' Twelve years ago the bride was a };oung lady of twenty, the daughtei of a wealthy merchant in Washington, Pa. ill her father's employ was a yoimg man named Robert , who, the young lady being bewitchingly beautiful, as in duty bound, fell desperately in love with her. &lt;? She reciprocated the attachment, and they were both betrothed. Unfortunately the young lady's father entered his pro test against the pleasant arrangement, and accordingly the young couple put off the happy day indefinitely. About a year afterwards she received a most tempting proposal, which, urged by her father, she accepted, and to the eternal despair of poor Robert, was married. Tiut alas, for the poor bridegroom!

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. FELIX 6T0WE. AND there stepped up to the bar, dressed in workhouse clothes, a girl, who, in manner, in beauty, and every thing but dialect and clothing, would have graced any drawing-room, or any carriage in the land. No sooner, how ever, did she catch a view of the male pauper than she put down hev face be tween her hands and.rested her elbows on the iron-bar, and sobbed out, as it seemed, her very soul in wretchedness. 'Oome, come!' said Laston; 'that's very well meant. But what have you to say' (he asked, after hearing the governor and the man) 'to creating disturbance in the Workhouse? How do you defend the assault upon this man?' Immediately she started, as if a ser pent had stnng her, but never ceased weeping and sobbing, cried out ' Assault him 1 Did I assault ye, Pan ? Does he say assault ? I'd crush the first butterfly that dared to light 011 him! Why, ask him, and he'll tell ye, I only took him by the hand And asked him whether he'd forgotte...
THROUGH NORWAY WITH A KNAPSACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860
THROUGH NORWAY WITH A KNAPSACK. "WE have derived much pleasure and information from the perusal of a new work, with the above title. The writer is most happy at descrip tion; the country has been so little visited, that this book has a freshness which is highly pleasing. A few extracts will, we are sure, prove interesting, and induce some of our readers to peruse the whole of the book. The author's description of his Knapsack may be of service to colonial pedestrians. ' My Knapsack is ihade of strong open wicker work, curved, like an angler's basket, to the sliape of the back, and lined on the inside with water proof cloth, so that the bare wicker rests on the s back. A free ventilation is thus secured, which effectually carries off the perspiration. , The top is closed by a leathern flap with straps.' The bread in general use, is called iriadftrod, which he says, Is a remarkable substance, composed of bruised cfats, cemented together by some means, and flattened out wonderfully. It...

[a PACT.] Eabnbs F WILSON was tho only son of a Christian widow who gaiued her liveli hood by sewing for one of the krge drapery establishments in Sydney, wliile her son had a situation in one of the newspaper offices. Never was there a more devoted mother ; her daily prayer was for the conversion of hur son, but, alas! Earnest, like many others, asso ciated with bad companions; he knew the boys at the office were bad boys, but he thought ho had too much sense to fol low their example. Boys! be careful with whom you associate. Earnest was a dutiful son, a happy boy, until he went into bad company. He was told it was unmanly to give his small weekly wages to his mother; it was very well if he kept himself in clothes with it; that boys shouldn't be much with their mo then, unless they wished to grow up like girls, and so on. Earnest was sorely tempted, and he didn't go to Him who alone could shield him. ' I gay,' said Bob Q to Earnest one ...
HINTS FOR HOMES. TOOTHACH[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860
HINTS FOR HOMES. TOOTHACHB. N"ebvotts people, young women especially, are sometimes suddenly attacked towards nightfall with violent toothache, without any apparent cause, the pain continuing unabated during the whole night. This affection has generally been considered hopeless : but Dr. Bergo uhnious now publishes the following as a sovereign remedy in such cases:-Pour a few drops of chloroform into a glass of water, and when the excess of chloroform has fallen to the bottom, let the water be administered as a gargle. On the first application, the pain will cease as if by enchantment; but this only lasts a few minutes; a second application will afford relief for a quarter of an hour, and a third will enable the patient to compose herself to sleep, and afford her a good night's re3t.-'Qalignanu WEAK EYES. Many who are troubled with weak eyes, by avoiding the use of them in reading, sewing, and the like, until after breakfast, will be able to use them with greater comfort for the rem...

One party produced his tailor's bill, with a receipt attached to it. A buzz went through the room that thi«* could not be surpassed, when a second proved that he bad ar rested his tailor for money lent him. .

RELIGION IN THE ROYAL HOUSE HOLD. ONE of the speakers at a mission meet ing in Leicester, gave some information concerning the teachers and nurses to whom is intrusted the training of the children of the Royal family.

The i Princess Royal, now the Princess Fred | erick William, was awakened through reading a sermon of Adolphe Monod, and became thoroughly religious. When the l last child was born, a Wesleyan was selected for nurse. The teacher of the Princc of Wales, Mr. Gibbs, was a NOB cpnforraist. Previous to the appoint ment he was sent for twice, and for two hours was subjected to a severe question ing by the Princ« Consort and her Majesty to test his knowledge. All the heads of the departments about her Majesty were pious people. Every child that was born in the Royal family was born amid many prayers.

WINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860
WINES. What American wines are made of i is dislosed by Hiram Cox, M. D, of t Cincinnati, who has made the following startling statement :-During the sum mer of 1856 I analyzed a lot of liquors for some conscientious gentlemen of our own city, who would not allow me to take samples to my office, but insisted on my bringing my chemicals and apparatus to their store, that they might see tbe operations. I accordingly repaired to their store and analized samples of six teen different lots. Among them were port-wine, sherry wine, and Madeira wine. The distilled liquors were some pure and some vile aftd,pernicious imita tions ; but the wine had not one drop of the juice of the grapes. The basis of the port was diluted sulphuric acid, colored with elderberry juioe, with alum, afld neutral spirits. The base of the sherry wine was a sort of pale malt, sulphuric acid from the bitter almond oil, with a per centage of alcoholic spirits from brandjr. The basis of the Madeira was a decoction of h...
HAVE FAITH IN GOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860
HAVE FAITH IN GOD. Uow oft our minds are filled with gloom. (Which torturing fears increase), And picture woes, which never come, And thus we mar our peace. If ills we dread should never oome, Then vain is our distress ; But if they come in blackest gloom, Fear will but them increase. The tender grass, the fragrant flowers, And lilies of the field, God feeds with air, and sun, and showers Yet they no tribute yield. The countless bir«& which fly abroad, Are free from anxious care, Yet they are not unwatch'd by God; He doth their food prepare. Shall He not much more care for us, And all our wants supply ? Yes-He hath promised-cease all fears, And on his word rely. Darlinghurst. AQUA. | I

DYING WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860
DYING WORDS. A past number of the Quarterly Review has a curious article on the dying moments of distinguished characters. The case of Cardinal Wolsey is well known. The morning before he died, he asked Cavendish the hour, and was answered past eight. 1 Eight of the clock,' replied Wolsey, * that cannot be -eight of the clock:-nay, nay, it can not be eight; for by eight of the clock shall you lose your master.' The day be miscalculated-the hour came true. On the following morning as the clock struck eight his troubled spirit passed from life. Boerhaee lay feeling his pulse till some new published work which he wished to read had arrived. He read it, and, exclaiming that the business of life was passed, died. Miss Linley died sing ing * I know that my Redeemer liveth.' Napoleon fought some battles o'er again, and the last words he muttered were tete d'armee. Lord Tenterden, who passed straight from the judgment-seat to his death bed, fancied himself still presiding at trial, and expi...

FAOTS, FUN, AND FANCY. * HOTJLD your tongue for a fool !* was the polite recommendation-of an Irish husband. 'Sure, thfin, you're, going*-to spake yourself,' was the smart reply of the wife. AN exquisitely dressed young gentleman, after buying another seal' to dangle about his delicate person, said to the jeweller that 'he would-ah like to have-ah something engraved on it-ah to denote.what he was.'-'Certainly, certainly, I will put a cypher on it,' said the tradesman. GARDENING FOR LADIES.-Make up your beds «arly in the morning; sew buttons on your husbands shii'ts; do not rake up any grievances ; protect the young and tender branches of your family; plant a smile of good temper on your face; carefully root out all angry feelings; and expect a good crop of happiness. Mrs. Partington having heard her son say that there were a great many anecdotes in Kingston's Annual for Boys, begged him to cut them all out, as she heard that when anybody was poisoned, nothing was necessary but to gi...
WHAT ARE YOU GOOD FOR? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860
« - WHAT ARE YOU GOOD FOR? . What are you pood for?' said a gentleman to a little boy. * Good to make a man of,' was the prompt, appropriate, and significant reply. That boy, if he live, we venture to predict, will make a man ;-a man not merely in form and statue and physical strength, but a man in mind, in dignity, and in carriage. Boy8 should expect to be men, and aim to be men ; should cherish many qualities, and eschew everything that is unmanly. 4 Show thyself a man,' was the expressive charge of King David to his son Solomon. And, 41 dare do all that may become a man; who dares do more is none,' ia the language which a great writer employs. Who of our young readers are seeking to be men, in the full and honourable sense of that term '?

A t.ONG, long way behind the rest of the civilised world are we in Sydney Our ideas of social improvement mako so little progress, our efforts for social reform are so slight. This is apparent in many instances, which reflect dishonor upon us as citizens* * but in no case more lamentably than in the darkness, crime, and abuse, which mark that otherwise wholesome spot-the Racecourse. In the daytime the loungers on the walks, of Hyde Park and the Racecourse are charmed by the extent of scenery they command; and as the fireshest breezes of ocean fans the fair cheeks of rosy children, and smiling ladies-they think how happy are we in possessing this delightful place of resort.
