PADDY'S MARVELLOUS ADVENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 September 1860

PADDY'S MARVELLOUS ADVENTURES. * Och! hone boderation! I've met with starvation, And all sorts of troubles since here I have been, It's in the bush rambling—through deep gullies scrambling I've seen such queer sights, as never were seen. I've been to the diggings to look for the gold there, From the Turon to Bendigo, all I have tried; I'vve been to the Snowy, but found it too cold there, My toes were all frozen, I thought I'd have died. I once got a nugget, and off I did lug it On my way back, for a mile I had carried it home, When three big bushrangers came looking like strangers And axed me which way I was trying to roam. They took off my nugget, and said they must kill me; I tould them I'd rather they left it alone, But they fired their pistols, wid bullets did drill me, And murdered entirely I tumbled, Och hone! Then off I went rovin' — right through the bush shovin', Looking about for the nuggets so bright, But all was a bubble, I'd nothing but trouble, And of gold big or littl...

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

ART AND SCIENCE. NEW REVOLVER.-A series of experiments have been completed at Chatham for testing a valuable patented improvement in revolving and repeating firearms, by means of which the inventor, Sergeant G. Sturrock, has succeeded in doubling the number of shots fired from a revolver, making it, in fact, a revolver of fourteen or sixteen consecutive shots without any necessity for reloading. The new wea- pon, although double-barrelled, ha3 but one cylinder, one trigger, and one lock and hammer. EXCAVATING IN WATER.-A new ma- chine has been invented by Dr. Payerne, for the excavations under water at the port of Fecamp, which he calls the 'hydrostat.' It consists of a wrought iron case, divided into three parts by two horizontal divisions. The lower story, or, if we may so call it, the working chamber, rests on the bottom of the sea, and presents an area of 8m. square by 2m. high. The double sides, enclosed at bottom, contain the necessary ballast for the sinking and stability of ...

GOOD POINTS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

G.OOD POINTS IN HOUSES. 29th.-Of the hind extremities I have already spoken in No. 18 as a whole. Now let us notice a few individual points. That joint which lies nearest flank is termed the stifle ; it resembles in construction the knee of the human subject, and, like it, easily injured. That muscular part beneath it, cannot be too large or too firm ; the distance between stine and the next joint, termed hock, should be great, not however so great as to throw hock an unseemly way out behind, but just of sufficient length to give the cat-form, and springing to leg. 30th.-Hock : this is a most impor- tant joint, made up of eleven bones ; if not very particularly formed, it can never stand much work, as from projec- tion and angle the greatest amount of stress falls here as you examine it with your eye, stand up to shoulders about one foot out ; and glancing at the inside, you will observe a prominent point at the upper part, this has been mistaken for malformation, and its prominence...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 415) THBT had been so often called into the cold for nothing, that they waited for another rap : and then Ruth took up the candlestick, which was a wine bottle, holding the narrowest diameter of tallow perhaps you ever saw. "A figure stood outside, wrapped up about the throat with a red woollen comforter, aûd over that, with the collar of an old, worn, camlot cloak, that reached to the ground. There was an umbrella, but the shelter it gave was little worth the carriage ; for all it did was to collect the pelting rain into rather larger streams, and send it down over the bending shoulders of the old man, somewhat blacker with the dye than it would have been with simple London soot. 'I beg your pardon,' quavered a very low voice at the top of the comforter. 'This isn't a night to keep you standing at the door,-but if you'd trust an old man inside a few minutes, I've a word to say to you that, mayhap, will be some excuse for disturbi...

A PAC f. ' HALLOA ! young shaver, what are you doing with so much vinegar ?' said a store keeper on the Brickfield-hill, some time biok. He addressed a little white-headed hoy, who was applying for ' another pen' lorth o' vinegar,' having been supplied fjth seven similar quantities within the ft^ar; ' father's druuk, so we gives him thia to sober him,' was the reply. . 3ut yon will kill him if you give him so IBUQV ' Sarve him right ; what business has lit to get drunk?' was the undutiful answer, ' How do you get him to take so > maoh finegar ?' « He don't take it, we pours \\ down his throat ; and when the old aove gets sober, he soon feels the vinegar, «nd then he kicks up a row.'

TOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

TOYS. IF a boy must have toys, furnish him with a hoe, spade, shovel, and weel li barrow, of a size suited to bis yean, md take him into a garden with you for actual1 work. He may help the wrong way, possibly, as the discipline is all the same to him so long as he understand! that he works. Tell him what he can do, and teach him how to do it : it will he a ,, real treat to him, fully equal to play. When the haymakers are in the field, ' give him his rake and send him forth to be one of their number ; he can rate a little. Perhaps he has visited a boot manufactory, and is facinated with what he there saw. Buy him an awl and some I pegs, and let bim go to work on an old boot or shoe, or even drive the pegs into a pine board, lt is an amusement that may be of service to him hereafter. If he exhibits considerable tact in any branch of labour or learning, let his toys if possible, point in that direction.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. AUGUSTUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. AUGUSTUS. When Eros was commanded by Antony to perform this promise, the faithful follower instantly drew a sword, and. pretending he was about to strike, he plunged the fatal weapon into his own breast, and dropped down dead. Antony then gave himself a mortal wound, but when about to expire, he discovered that Cleopatra was yet alive, and desired to be instantly carried, bathed in his blood, into her presence. He had to be drawn up by ropes to the window of the monument, where the queen of Egypt had taken refuge, and she herself assisted, with all her strength, in raising him, after which she wept over him, tore her clothes, beat her breast, and gave way to the most violent grief; but Antony begged her to act more moderately, say- ing, 'Lament not my misfortunes, hut . congratulate me on the happiness which I have enjoyed. I have lived the greatest and most powerful of men ; and though Í fall, my fate is not shameful.* Cleopatra was very soon after taken priso...

HINTS FOR HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

I HINTS FOR HOMES. 1 HOUSE FLIES; A SANITARY HIST. These troublesome summer visitors are not without their use, for they serve to indicate certain impure conditions which require care ; it may be, that they also have the effect, to some extent, of purifying the atmosphere. Where flies ' J abound, it shows to a certainty that there is something which should be removed. When visiting the dwelling of the poor, great difference in the number of flies in some rooms in comparison with others may be noticed, and it will be found that those apartments which are most dirty and neglected have the greater number of flies. At this season of the year, all dust and refuse should be kept carefully covered and closed, both for the purpose of preventing an escape of efluvia, and preventing the mixture of moisture, which causes fermentation. In houses of the better kind, if flies are troublesome, a careful inspection of the neighbourhood would show some offensive refuse of stables and cow-sheds close...

PET PERENNIALS. - No. XII. BY PATTY PARSLEY. ' CHAPTER XTI. ^ I It wa« a falsehood, breathed in low «oft words of sweetness. ANON ALICE BRANDON'S life glided softly from girlhood into maidenhood with no very great sorrow to interrupt its peace- ful course, until fshe reached nineteen years of age. It is true that her nature revolted at the superficial character of her mother's life, but her love palliated that in a large degree , both to her own heart and in the sight of others. It is true, also, that her frequent perusals of the rows of figures over which her father pored had made her acquainted with the bubble-like [nature of his fortune : |bnt then she found around her every luxury of life without any apparent difficulty in I obtaining them, and the shadow^ of ! trouble was not yet very obtrusive. Then she not only walked in the peace- ¡ ful consciousness of a soul at ease, hut 1 also a light of rosy radience grew to t brighter strength over her path each day. It culminated when ...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. WHITE BELLIED SEA EAGLEIehthyiactus Leucogaster. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. WHITE BELLIED SEA EAGLE Ichthyiactus Leucogaster. THIS noble species of Eagle, it is sup- posed, extends its range over all the coast of Australia. It never plunges beneath the,surface for living prey, but depends almost entirely for its subsis- tence upon the dead fish, &c, that may j be thrown up by the sea and left upon tho a lt np A Yixf +Via va/iaJini* nrairaa T I this respect it Í9 very different to the wedge tail Eagle, who boldly makes even the Kangaroo and bas- tard its prey. The peculiar province of this Sea Eagle is the sea shore, and it especially delights to take up its abode on the borders of small bays and inlets of tiie sea & rivers as far as they are influ- enced by the tide ; it is sometimes, though rarely, met within the forests and plains of the interior. As it is al- most invariably seen in pairs, it would appear to be permanently ma- ted, each pair in- habiting a parti- cular bay or iulet, to the exclusion oí others o...

BACON CUBING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

BACON CUBING. THE best period of the year is at hand for the caring of bacon, and it should be attended to as speedily as possible. The pig having been killed and scalded, not by putting it into a tub of boiling water as most people do, but by pouring the boiling water over it as it lies on some straw or other material of a similar nature, is hung up until it is perfectly cold. The head is then cut off and put | into, the pork tub; the back bone and | ribs should then be taken out, with as little meat as possible, the side of the flitch being left smooth. These ribs make excellent pies-spare rib pies, as they are called in the North of England. Any bloody veins in the ham or shoulder should be carefully wiped out with a clean sweet cloth, and the flitch^ is then laid on a table, the skin upwards, *n¿ rubbed with salt in the hand uu$ij: the salt runs off in a brine.

BLESSINGS OF POVERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

BLESSINGS OF POVERTY. THE following remarks of a very dis- tinguished writer on the subject are worthy of serious consideration : Poverty is the nurse of manly energy and heaven-climbing thoughts attended by love, and faith, and hope, around whose step3 the mountain breezes blow, and from whoes counterpane ? all the virtues gather strength. Look around yon upon the distinguished men that in every department of lif¿ guide aud con the origin, and what was their early fortunes. Were they, as a general rule, rocked and dangled in the lamp of wealth? No, such men emerge from the enquire what was houses ot decent competence of struggl ing poverty. Necessity sharpens their faculty, and privation and sacrifice brace their moral nature. They learn the art of renunciation, and enjoy the happiness of having few wants. They know nothing of indifference or satiety. There is not an idle fibre in their frames. Th3y put the vigor of a resolute purpose in every act. The edge of their mind is always ...
