NEEDLEWORK. DAISY MAT. FIVE SHADES OF WOOL. A Frame Nine Inches square, with Ten Wooden Pegs on each side. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860

NEEDLEWORK. DAISY MAT. FIVE SHADES OF WOOL. A Frame Nine Inches square, with Ten Wooden Pegs on each side. COMMENCE with the dark shade, tie it to the corner peg, cross it to the peg on the opposite side, wind it fifteen times round; do this on all the corner pegs. Then tie the next lighter shade on the next pegs, and so on to the fourth shade. There will then be two centre pegs on each side which must contain the lightest shade. Thread a netting needle with strong twist, tie the crossings together each way, so as to form small squares; work to the opposite peg and back on the next line, and so on till all are finished. Take a pair of small pointed scissors and run the points between each square, leav ing about four threads at the bottom uncut. In doing this be careful not to cut the tieing twist. The wool thus cut forms the tufts. Comb them up, and cut them round, before you take it off the frame. Then slip it off and comb the fringe, and cut it straight.

CHAPTER VI. Or this? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860

CHAPTER VI. Or this? IT was a pretty home of which Bessie Glaynel was mistress in that western suburb. Rather than richness, purity reigned there. Soft white draped the rooms, and light inexpensive furniture was in them. I do not know if they were fashionable-I am not even sure that they were fully furnished; I only know that they were pretty and home like, and that people stepped into them with a refreshened feeling. By the hearth usually sat Mr. Martin, an old man now, but with a gentle smile upon his face that never was there in his more prosperous days. The baby was found oftener upon his knee or nestling in his bosom than elesewhere. By the table sits Bessie stitching at gome childish article of clothing, while her little boy on a stool at her feet cuts lengths of cotton and threads needles as mamma wants them. But the father's knee is empty ; 4 and now as we look round we feel that th«re is a void, and our eyes rest sadly on Bessie's black dress. Yes, even here has theBereaver...

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860

ART AND SCIENCE. EXCLUSION OP DAMP FROM BBICKWORK. -The following methods for obviating this evil have been described at the Royal Institute of Architects :-' Three quarters of a pound of mottled soap dissolved in one gallon of boiling^ water, and the hot solution spread steadily with a flat brush over the outer surface of the brickwork, taking care that it does not lather. This is to be allowed to dry for twenty-four hours, when a solution formed of a quarter of a pound of alum dissolved in two gallons of water is to be applied in a similar manner over the coating of soap. The operation should be performed in dry, settled weather. The other method consists of sulphurised oil as a varnish or paint, and is said to improve the colour of brick and stone, as well as preserve them. It is prepared by subjecting eight parts of linseed oil and one part of sulphur to a temperature of 278 degrees in an iron vessel, It is said to keep out both air and moisture, and prevent deposits of soot and...

LADY MACBETH. A SKETCH. ALL palely shone the moon o'er wold and heath, Dimly up lighting lea and forest shade, The barren mountain and the mead beneath, The savage rocky glen and glassy glade. *Neath her cold beam and mystic glance of light Deep in the silence of a lonely dell, Three Eldrich beldames wove with mystic might, And words of gramarye their unholy spell "Wizen'd, wither'd, tatter'd in attire, Bearded and toothless, skinny, grim and grey, Their green eyes gleaming with infernal ire, They muttering chanted, their unwholesome lay. * . * * * * And sweet o'er Dunsinane's embattled tower, Shone the fair moon so lovely and so bright, Silvering each russet stone and leafy bower, Nature seem'd sleeping in her virgin light. In the deep stillness of a tap'stried roum; At midnights lonely hour in silence slepc' A royal lady from whose cheek the bloom Of youthfalness stern Time yet sc.irce had swept. Softly the moonbeam fell through lattic'd pane, Upon that sleeping lady-she so fair. ...

PET PERENNIAL S -No. XII. i'ATTY PARSLEY. CHAPTER V. How like you this 1 IT would have been a study of no little interest to compare the life of the Brandons and Glaynels for the next eight or ten years. In the pretty villa at Darling Point splendoar . reigned supreme.' But no vulgar display, no glare and glitter-all was subdued and quiet. Everything was of the best quality and of the first fashion, but of the neatest and most plainly elegant form. The whole dwell ing was a scene of rich simplicity. And its mistress was at home in her proud abode. Mrs. Brandon's queenly figure had improved since her girlhood's days, and if her face was less fair she had atoned for the beauty which a few years had carried away by the increased taste in her dress. Mrs. Brandon's taste was exquisite, elegant,faultless; pronounced a coterie of eager silly women, who made her the fashion, and eagerly sought to attain the same easy loftiness of manner, and appearance which she observed. She did not associ...

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860

THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from page 374.) THE wife is away, and has been it seems some weeks on a theatrical ex pedition, and so he has gone to her, it is presumed. He had evidently seen me in the vicinity of the house, whither replies to his begging letters were addressed, and this soon gave him to understand that the game was up. As the woman at his real lodgings says, he came home in a great hurry, called for a wine glass, and was then for some time busy in his bed-room-he then went out, no one seeing him go, and has never returned. When she repaired to his sitting room, that same evening, there stood half a bottle of first rate port wine upon the table, a bundle of cigars,! an uncut number of Punch, and dishes filled with grapes, ratafin biscuits, and almonds and raisins, such being a specimen of his daily indulgences since his wife's absence. To crown all, when ; the police came to search a ehest of drawers in the bedroom, otherwise empty, but for a few sordid rags, they found...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY NEW HOLLAND VULTURE. Wastled Talegalla. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 August 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL H I S T NEW HOLLAND VULTURE, Wastled lalegalla. THIS is the brush turkey of the Colonists, and much diversity of opinion exists as to its natural system and situation. How far its range may ex tend over Australia is not yet ascertain ed; it is known to inhabit various parts of New South Wales, from Cape Howe to Moreton Bay; but the timber-cutters, and others who frequent the bushes of Illawarra and the Hunter, having nearly exterminated it from these solitudes, it is now most plentiful in the dense and little trodden bush of the Manning and Clarence. ! Specimens have been found on the Brezi range to the North of Liverpool1 plains, and also on the banks of the j Namoi. It is a gregarious bird, generally moving in small companies; is very shy and distrustful. When disturbed, it readily eludes pursuit by the facility with which it runs through the tangled bush. If hard pressed, or when rushed upon by its great enemy-the Native Bog-it springs upon the lowermost branch...

CHAPTER IV. Pharaoh's Daughter. WHILE the magistrate was down among the partridges at Latson Towers, cracking jokes, first about one of his prisoners, and then about one of his victims (and there was not very much difference between the two classes, ex cepting thfit he sent away his victims to seek their misery for themselves, but furnished his prisoners with theirs at his own, or the country's cost nearer home); and while Joyce Claymore was passing her days in concealment, and hev nights in the street (that infant, her amulet against insult or suspicion); and while poor Cicely was asking Grod, in His mercy, soon to lay her down, if He pleased, beside her little girl, and out of | its father's road - while all this was i going on, an old woman, in very feeble i health, and plenty of poverty, was sipp-1 ing her private cup of trouble in the room 'Where her daughter was a dress maker.

ANCIENT SHOES AND SANDALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 September 1860

ANCIENT SHOES AND SANDALS. LADIBS and others paid great attention to the beauty of their sandals. Those worn in Palestine were, probably, of some substantial make and material. Those of the Egyptians varied in form: the superior ones being, for the most part, pointed, and turned up at the ends. They were wrought of palm-leaves, stalks of papyrus, &c., but some times of leather. Shoes, or low boots, are found at Thebes; but these, perhaps, belonged to foreigners. They were generally green and laced in front with thongs. It was the custom to take off ssndles on holy ground, in the act of worship, and in the presence of a superior. This is still done in the East. There the shoe is removed, as we remove the hat. Can you find two or three texts in the Bible which ball this to mind? and what lessons do they teach ?

BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 September 1860

BIRDS. GENERALLY birds have a tome, from 'which they only migrate at stated times, to find a supply of food and temperatnre well suited to reproduction. ^ISfeir admirable power and motion enable them to circulate, for these purposes, more widely and more freely all over the earth than any other class of animals. In this they are led by the same instincts from the Almighty, that direct alike the life-withering flight of the locust, and the cheerful migrations of the swallow. They are never deceived in their time by any peculiarity of wind and weather; for truly 'the stork in the heavens knoweth her appointed time, and the turtle, and the crane, and the swallow, observe the time of their coming.' It even seems as if certain impulses were given to birds, indepen dent of their early imitative propen sities, which must proceed directly from the Almighty Power that governs the universe. How else could the instinct of migration be felt by birds ^pt in cages, whom neither cold nor want* of ...

CHAPTER. VIII. Life is only bright when it proceedeth Towards a truer, deeper Life above; Human Love is sweetest when it leadeth To a more divine and perfect Love. Miss PROCTM. WITH his parents' consent, Oscar kept his promise, and visited his cousin almost daily. Alice made the required apology, and from that day there was a marked alteration in her character. She would often apparently be on the verge of an angry outbreak, but with a start and a rush of colour to her face she would com mand down'the impulse, and speak in a soft girlish voice, with a half-tone of con trition in its flow. Her mother said ' she did not know what had come to the child, for she had lost all her fine high spirits,' but Alice waited upon her with greater assiduity than ever, and if she laughed less often hor smile became daily more beautiful. To her father she became a companion ; and, as years, went on, she might be often found bending over the great book with dazzling rows of figures, with her arm thro...

PET PERENNIAL 8.-No. XII. BY PATTY PABSLEY, CHAPTER VII. The deep glad spirit of the boy To love and reverence grew. Mas. HEMAKB. THE Brandons and the Glaynels were in the habit of exchanging visits :-that is, Mrs. Brandon was in the habit of drawing up to Mrs. Glaynel's humble door, and, after her coachman had given the earsplitting knock, which certainly is a most inappropriate herald of the approach of a gentle woman, sweeping from her carriage into the unpretending little white drawing-room, and sitting there, while she answered her cousin's affectionate courtesies with her silver - sharp meaningnesses of fashion; for ex actly the time which custom marked for a call of ceremony and not for one moment longer: - Mrs. Glaynel would answer the call in due time and enter the drawing-room with a little trepidation of heart for fear she should cross the path of any of Mrs.Brandon's fashionable friends. It has struck us sometimes that the moss rose blushed to its core when it first foun...
