THE BEGINNING AND THE END, The Tale in Two Parts. PART I.—CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

THE BEGINNING AND THE END, % Mt m ®to0 |atts. PART I.-CHAPTER 1. J " Is old German tales we read of weir wolves, fiends, of many form and color, taking up their abide in homes and hearts; and in some English romances we are told of haunted castles, souls sold for gain, revenge, or beauty ; my tale is one of the present day, where a fiend, whose name is Lsgion, becomes an in- mate of a once happy heart-a once peace- ful home. It is said there is a skeleton in every house; alas, how trae! the Egyptians of old had one seated at the festive board, to remind their guests, what they must all one day become ; we in this refined nineteenth century take the ghastly visitor home, with us, mak- ing it a bosom friend, a cherished inmate, soon by its baneful presence driving away happiness, pure pleasures, innocent enjoyments, making a happy home (the only remnants of Eleu left us) an earthly hell, making the youn;r, old, the old wretched. On! that my pen had pawer to portray the hateful vice of...

CHAPTER VII. Mr. Daniel Stuggs. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

: ! : CHAPTER VII. Mr. Daniel Stuggs. Mr. Daniel Staggs was not called npon for his services in providing ahorne for Ms companion, on that eventful evening when he overtook Joyce near Ruth's house. Jóvce was out ófhis sight, holding her hands against the precious paper in her poor wet dress, before her muddled partner missed her. As for Dan, it is difficult to understand how he would have found a lodging for Joyce, ac- cording to the promise he had hiccuped out, considering that he possessed very slender means of providing a home for himself. In fact, at this particular time, Stuggs had no home. He was living in that Aràbian and rather questionable manner, wherein he had passed the five years daring which, with all deference to his friend the magistrate, he had been deserting Cicely. Nevertheless, he was under no particular concern about the ffóare, for his vocation was not of a character that rendered a little temporary tightness in the money market a cause of serious embarrassment...

HOW TO GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

! HOW T0 GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS. j WE present our readers wita another I extract from a thousand chances for j making money, believing that it contains many valuable hints, and much good advice. John Jacob Astor is reported to have said that it cost him more severe effort to get the first thousand dollars than all the others. If he had bequeathed to man- kind an easy and certain method of over- coming the difficulty, the bequest would have^ been a far more valuable one than all his fortune, entitling him to the most conspicuous niche in the gallery of the world's benefactors. The task, however, was beyond his powers, as it has proved too vast for abler men. Franklin attempted to teach the true secret of money-catching-the certain way to fill empty pockets,- with what success we have seen. Missionaries have favoured the world with their dicta and opinions ; but the world has not attached any great importance to their sayings, and certainly not been much benifitted bf theil Ob...

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

CHAPTER X. She dwindled away, as a shadow might fade Wh en the night, coming down, drown'd shadow in shade. ANON. Oscar Glaynel was a man with a man's heart, and in that heart he locked the secret of his insulted love. His mother knew instinctively all that had passed, and with her own sweet tenderness wiled the tale from him, and comforted him as she could ; hut to none other did there appear any other change than a firmer earnestness in all noble purposes. Between the two families the sepera tion was complete: Mr. Brandon was puzzled, but his wife hinted of a mis- understanding between Oscar and Alice, and he was too truthful himself to dream of any double-dealing. So he was un- satisfied, but silent ; just now too his business became greatly embarassed and between struggles to keep afloat and anxiety to keep from his wife all know- ledge of his troubles, his attention was i fully occupied. Mrs. Brandon was busy with her own projects. She took Alice out with her always now ; spent...

EFFECT OF A SINGLE TRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

EFFECT OF A SINGLE TRACT. A poor pedlar, a humble but zealous Unna tiarj, stopped at the house of a rich man, and trembling knocked at the door. The master himself came and purchased a ¡tract, called the . Bruised Reed,'by Dr. I Sibbs. He threw it carelessly aside, and thought no more of it, but the Lord had destined it to an important end. That I small despised tract the rich man's son paw and read, and by the Spirit's power, it became to him the means of saving grace ; that son was the celebrated Richard Baxter, who wrote the * Saint's Rest.' But the conversion of one sonl does not end there; that soul is much concerned for the souls of others, and seeks to know what the Lord would have him ,'to do, and in a variety of ways, his influence spreads, and the little leaven leavens a large lump. Baxter is dead, but he has left us his 4 Saint's Best,' which was the means of converting Dr« Doddridge. That holy man died, hat the jasntfo fell on others, and the leaven did not fall, for he ...

SAXON ORIGIN OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 September 1860

SAXON ORIGIN OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. PÍOM them (the Anglo-Saxons) we derive our language; of which the structure, ania majority of its words, much greater than thase who have not thought on the subjact would at fir3t believe, are Saxon. Of sixty-nine words which make up the Lord's Prayer, only five are not such ; of eighty-one word3 in the soliloquy of Hamlet, thirteen only are of Latin origin ; even in a passage of ninety words in Milton, whose diction is more learned than that of any other poet, there are only sixteen Latin words ; in four verses of the authorised version of Genesis, containing about a hundred and thirty words, there are no more than fi ve ; in leventy-nine words from Addison, whose perfect taste preserved him from a pedantic or constrained preference for any portion of the language, we only find fifteen. In later times, the language has rebelled against the bad taste of those otherwise excellent writers who, instead of ennobling their style like Milton, by the p...

WB mean not that great commercial and political herald which is regarded the barometer of Europe, and which wiugs its way into every country ; has its large staff of correspondents in every busy scene ; mingling in camps, assemblies, and the business haunts of men ; which leaves no subject untouched, and scrutan izes the very mind of statesmen and of rulers : great vehicle of thought, by which thousands of minds are guided, and to whose opinion multitudes bow down in sub- missive compliance. No; we mean the TIMBS working at home and working hore-the day of our present life and activity. At home, suspicion broods over the public mind ; that our times are ominous ; the mutterings and the speculations of the past at length have become audible, and the Premier of Old England has spoken out-his language is * PREPARE!' A great nation's safety, honor, prosperity, are now cast into the scale o...

Bangred on the nearer hills, and scoured Those vales o'er which too oft are poured From Wealth's full hives amid the woods Their fleecy swaime, for ihe wild-bom broods To won about them as of old : Thete ebbing back, as those intrude On some yet trackless solitude; Even such as shall ere lone unfold Its game-grazed scope to those Hunters bold, Making the gladdest gladder.-gee, Merry reen I trow they be! Or struggling ont-or side by side 'Tis theirs, thus in the Forest green, To mix with manhood's vigorous pride The glad surprise, the relish keen, And all the unresisted glee Of boyhood's large sincerity ! Mark with what fire each eye is filled The inbreathed soul of the ancient wild! Mark with what life each motion's willed ! Were ever the nerves of the City's child Thus, like a harp's chords, thrilled ? yon grasy nook, of forest bare, But belted round with cedars high And clumped with brambles here and there, A f...

STRAY LEAVES FROM A BUSH MINISTER'S NOTE-BOOK. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

STRAY LEAVES FROM A BUSH MINISTER'S NOTE-BOOK. NO. I. WEDNESDAY, August 15th.-Arrived 4bout noon at S . . . H . . . Cannot say much for the beauty of the place; peedbeds are not very picturesque; though the open plain, skirted with the dark mallow and deep green of the Murray River pines, hag rather a pleas ing appearance, especially as Nature just now has donned her inany-coloured car pet of spring flowers.

A CEYLON JUGGLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

A CEYLON JUGGLER. As this was one of the idle seasons of the year, during which labor is sus pended while waiting for the rains of the monsoon, ere recommencing the sowing of rice; the Kandyans were longing about their villages or gathered in groups by the roadside, engaged in listless and sedantary amusements In one place a crowd was collected to watch the feats of a juggler, who, to our surprise, commenced his performance by jumping up on to a pole, and placing his feet upon a cross bar six feet from the ground. On this he coursed along by prodigious leaps, and returning to the audience, steadied himself on his perch, and then opened his exhibition. This consisted of endless efforts of legerde main ; catching pebbles thrown up to him by his confederate below, which, upon opening his closed hand, flew away as birds; breaking an egg-shell and allowing a small serpent to escape from it; and keeping a series of brass balls in motion by striking them with his elbows, as weil as hU hand...

THE IVY ON THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

THE IVY ON THE WALL. The verdant ivy clings around, Yon m»ss-bemantled wall; As if it sought to hide the stones, That crumbling soon must fall : That relic of a bygone age Now tottering to decay, Has but one friend the ivy left, The next have pass'd away. The fairy flowers that once did bloom, And smile beneath its shade; They linger'd till the autum came, And anturtiR saw them fade : 468 The emerald leaves that blush'd between, The winds away have blown I But yei, to cheer the mournful scene, The ivy iiveth on. Thus heavenly Hope will still survive,. When earthly joys have fled; And all the flowering dreams of youth, Lie withering and dead : When winter comes-it twines itself Around the human heart; And like the ivy on the waR, Wilt R»'ar fiTim theni>p Hpnflft.

HINTS FOR HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

HINTS FOR HOMES. BITHING t-If to preserve health be to save medical expenses* without even reckoning upon time and comfort, there is no part of the household arrangement >o important to the domestic economist u cheap convenience for personal ablu tion. For this purpose baths upon a large and expensive scale fire by no means necessary : but though temporary or tin baths may be extremely useful upon pressing occasions, it will be found to be finally as cheap, and much more readily convenient, to have a permanent bath constructed, which may be done in any dwelling-house of moderate size, without interfering with other general purposes. As the object of these re marks is not to present essays, but merely useful economic hints, it is unne cessary to expatiate upon the architec tural arrangement of the bath, or, more properly speaking, the bathing-place, which may be fitted up for the most re tired establishment, differing in size or shape agreeable to the spare room that may be approp...

OUR SUNDAY SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

OUR SUNDAY SCHOOLS. THE BE is no w«rk more important in the present day than the moral and religious education of the young, who are especially draWD into the evil of in temperance by the delusion that strong is useful, and necesssry to health, also by the respectability of the drunkeries and their accomplices All this appears very fair to the eye, there is no apparent danger, but the old serpent lurks in the cup, there is poison in the chalice, and it is not often discovered, until it stings and destroys its victim. It is this cursed system, appearing harmless, which is working so much destruction upon the effects put forth in our Sunday schools, destroying the good which may be effected in the minds of the children, during their early training in the school: and ag&inst which Sabbath school teafchers and all christians have to con tend. Let us look at some facts to prove this. There is this fact, that the elder scholars, after they leave the school, do not come into our ch...

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

ART AND SCIENCE. GCN POWDER Suieuseeded.-Sir Mac flonald Stephenson writes to the Times, describing a new mortar upon which he is now engaged : -4 It consists of the application of high-pressure steam to produce great centrifugal velocity, and the angle of discharge of the shot or shell is regulated by very simple mechanism. No gunpowder is used. Every description of missile can be dis charged, and' if necessary, the boulders or beach stones can be used. The mortars can be kept in continuous operation, loaded, and discharged by two men. The range varies from 800 to 2000 yards, according to the velocity angle of elevation, and dimensions of shot. Ten or more shots can be discharged for every single discharge of the ordinary mortar. In the original plan I proposed to apply a rotary steamengine to impart high centrifugal force to a cylinder of about seven fee.t in diameter, near the cantre of which the shot are inserted and pass down the arms or spokes to the periphery, where they are ...
