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

CORRESPOND ENCE. Mi DSAK ME. EDITOR,-I arrived in Melbourne on Tuesday last, afte^a pleasant passage, which 1 enjoyed very much; the only thing connected ?with it which was not very agreeable was the miserably small allowance of room in the sleeping apartments. To put four berths in a cabi^n not much larger than a hearse is most uncomfortable economy of space. There is no convenience for your clothing when you take it off, and you must either put it upon your bed, and make yourself unpleasantly warm, or leave it upon the cabin floor, and have your rest spoiled by uneasy specu lations of what you may possibly find tlepesited upon it in the morning by some of your groaning neighbours. I have scarcely had time to observe much since my arrival here, besides the usual business like bustle of this remarkable city. I could not, however, fail to remark the number of persons of the labouring class walking leisurely about the streets as though they had no employ ment ; and I was yesterday sto...

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

CHAPTER XII. And this is Death-so sweet, BO calm, So purely free from pain. ANON. OSCAR was the first to reach Alice's room. She lay quietly in the old nurse's arms with a slight smile upon her lips, and the first glance at her would almost have said that the excitement of the servant was not justified by its cause. 4 She's been in a fit, sir,' paid the nurse, in answer to Oscar's hurried questions, 'and I think she's unconscious now." ' No, nurse, I am not,' whispered Alice faintly : 41 know all you say.' 4 My darling!' was Oscar's only ex pression, gasped out from an agonised heart. 1 Do not grieve, Oscar; I am going, but the parting is not for ever.' Again Oscar's eye met the mother's; there was no reproach in it, but bitter anguish. * Mother, kiss me. Oh, mother, it is hardest of all to part with you. Una-' The child came to her side, and Alice whispered, with a look of pain, ' Be kind to her, but, oh Una, act like Aunt Glaynel. Good bye, Mr. Glaynel: tell my aunt her lessons do...

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

NOTICES. DtfBAWtT's revalenta arables food supersedes the expenses and miseries of the materia medica, brings new life and cheerfulness to the invalid, renders the process of cure both pleasant and certain. Fifty thousand well-known and recorded oases establish this ; and the number of -witnesses to its effects is daily increasing. Amongst the female sex its salutary effects are as marked as amongst males. Miss Elizabeth Jacobs writes, from Nazing Vicarage, near Waltham Cross, gerts«I have been suffering, at least, seven TMT3, in the prime of life, for indigestion, nervous ness. head-aches, inflammation, gatherings, low spirits, general debility, sleeplessness, and delusions; and dutingall that time I have required every year, so much medical attendance, that I hire been almost ruined by doctors' bills.' She then presents her heartfelt gratitude to Messrs. Du Barry, for the complete cure effected by Du Barry's Food. Mrs. Mary Godsmark, of Hunton, writes' Your excellent Food has rele...

FACES IN THE POND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

FACES IN T HE POND. Oh { do you not remember, As children wild with gle*, We wandered o'er the sunny fields, And o'er the spangled lea, And surely thought the water clear Was touched by fairy wand, As we gazed upon oar faces there Mirror'd in the Pond. With awe we seemed to gaze far down The unfathomable deep, And a feeling near akin to fear Would o'er our bodies creep; To see the rolling clouds that He Upon the blue beyond, And two little childish faces there Mirror'd in the Pond. We dreara't not in those sunny days What the Future had in store j We thought 'twas sure a fable time When Youth would be no more: Nor thought that Time, with ruthless han^ "Would break our fairy wand, Or seam the happy faces there Mirior'din the Pond. But wisdom we have learnt, 'ti« true, Tho' in learning lost our youth, Yet Memory smiling still is ours. And everlasting Truth ! For well we know that One is gone Far past the blue beyond, That loved the little faces there Mirrer'd in the Pond. Ask me BOW, ...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE WOMBAT. Phascolomys Wombat. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HIST THE WOMBAT. Phascolomys Wombat. THIS animal is the only known speci men of the genus to which it belongs : it is found throughout these colonies. In its general figure, the Wombat is heavy and clumsy; the limbs are short; the muzzle blunt; the eyes very small; the ears short and pointed ; the nostrils widely separated ; no tail. The feet are broad; the fore feet have five toes, with strong claws for burrowing. The teeth are formed for grir ding roots, and , other vegetable matter. The fur is moderately long and very coarse ; the j general tint is grizzled brown, or grey, mottled with dusky black ; the feet are black; the under parts of the body dirty white. The head and body are upwards of three feet in length. As might be conjectured from its clumsy form and heavy proportions,, the Wombat is slow and indolent. It lives in burrows, which it excavates to a considerable depth, and in which it quietly reposes during the day, being nocturnal in its habits. Its fo...

HOW TO GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

HOW TO GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS [Continued from page 436.] AMONG the records of the Savings'. Banks, which perform a most useful I purpose in collecting and rendering available the dribblets of wealth, no doubt there are many other remarkable instances. In Massachusetts the deposits in Savings' Banks amount to over 23,000,000 dollars. 3. Another element of Eeonomy, essential to the accumulation of capital, is protection against great losses by carefully providing against small ones. The importance of this principle is thus illustrated by M. Say, the political economist: 'Being in the country, I had an example of one of those small losses which a family is exposed to through negligence; from the want of a latch of small value, the wicket of a barn yard, looking to the field, was left open Every one who wen! through drew the door to; but having no means to fasten it, it reopened. One day a fine J>ig got out and ran into the woods, and im mediately all the world was after it. ...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

CHAPTER III. A few weeks have passed. Mary Grey is sitting at work in the verrandah, with Minnie beside her; she seemed very thoughtful, so much so, that her little companion was evidently tired of her continued silence, and after vainly trying to pursuade her to play ' dolls' dinners,' gave it up, and went into the garden, but presently ran back saying, 4 Auntie, Auntie, here is Mr, Herbert and Annie !' When Mary reached the gate, they had dismounted. .Oh dear, Miss Grey/ said Annie, running towards her, ' I am so glad to see you again: where is Mrs. Page ?' 4 Come Minnie, and give me a dozen kisses; why you will soon be as tall as I.' Taking the child in her arms she turned to her consin, saying, 'Is she not a little beauty ?* 'Sire is exactly like her Aunt,' was the quick reply. . Yes ! bat Minne is a natfv* roa I knowyou cannot think what Vttfa Harry and I have about our country; be thinks there is nothing good or beautiful in Australia.' .

We Will now see what tbe gentlemen &ie doing, busily engaged in asking and answering questions. « You are a lucky fellow, Phil, ray boy, said Harry. . What a charming little wife, and such a sister-you are to be en vied! Miss Grey is the most beautiful girl I eversaw; I little thought I should find anything so lovely in the wilds of Australia. It is too soon, I suppose, to ask you to put in a good word for me we promised, you know, to share and to share alike in our school-days, there fore as you have one sister, you might try and help me to win the other.' 'I cannot promise,' said Philip, speak ing more thoughtfully than the occasion required, for of course his friend spoke gaily and unthinkingly.

HEAVEN IS MY HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 October 1860

HEAVEN IS MY HOME, I'M journeying on with rapid flight To realms beyond the stars of night. "Where all is pure, serene, and bright, And ' no night there.' When Death shall my cag'd soul release, These wearying cares and pains shall cease, And I shall endless joy and peace With angels share. No pang of pain, or sorrow's sigh, Shall rend my heart, for God is nigh To wipe the tear from every eye, In that bright home. Yes, Heaven is min«, for Christ is true; Then why, with such a prize in view, Should I in grief my way pursue, And torturing gloom. Darlinghutst.

I think if you diminish your usual charge of powder, however little, it will remove the diffi culty you complain of. Another way, if you wish your shot to carry closer, is to u-e a very close tight-fitting wad", and to wet the shot before putting it in the gun. Another, and more con venient plan, is the following: Get a piece of stick, about 18 inches long, and smooth it down so as to lit loosely in the barrel of your gun, then roll some stout brown payer round it, gumming the edges well.

And indeed we cannot But sympathise in her sorrow. Her whole life was on tbe eve of a living death. Her existence was indissolably Connected with costly dress and furni ture, fashionable friends and fashionable entertainments. Costly dress and fur niture were no longer at her command; fashionable friends would fall away from the stricken one, and ' pass by on the | other side and the doors of fashionable I entertainments would be closed as firmly aranst her as they were against the daring adventurer of the eastern tale, for like him she would have lost the mftJric pass-word.

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 415) CHAPTER. VIII. Love's Labour Lost. LATSON, having flung to the servant his enormous pilot-coat, and having shed his overalls, and hung up his hunting whip, stood revealed in that splendid room, one of the handsomest of country gentlemen. He knew it, while he waited there, not a mirror from end to end of the apartment missed the honour of re flecting, first the front, then the profile, then the half reversed view of that well made form. The pier-glasses had the preference, for they showed the com pleter outline: and depend on it, the Colonel hated the winter, that forced those marvels of little feet into some thing stouter than glazed kid that day. The visitor had no time to do more than make this hurried and very satis factory circuit. * The Lady Ethel is nut at home, Colonel,' said the iady herself, promptly opening the door, and standing at the entrance, with a very well-sustained imitation of the well-bred domestic.

Cjjt Australian Home dUmpiuan, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL THE CREDIT-SYSTEM. "WHEN a man works upon money of his own,, he proceeds with caution,, and the best exercise of judgment that is in his power. Give him other people's money to do as he likes with, and he makes it spin. Carried to such extremes as we have seen lately, it promotes wasteful, mischievous, and unsuccessful business and suffers a fearful penalty in itself ' An ingenious and accomplished man was in business as a publisher. He planned and superintended the preparation of many excellent books. His spe culations were, however, too great for his means. He had consequently to buy paper from wholesale stationers at perhaps twenty percent, above ready-money prices: had to give large percentages to bill-discounters: had to take in partners, who, for the sake of small advances, drew a large share of profits. All the natural and proper fruits of many years of laborious industry were thus absorbed, and large losses incurred bes...

I am not certain if her elder sister glanced over my shoulder as I write, that she would endorse to the full that last sen tence, for Miss Minnie was a wee bit mischievous, and did think it good fun to abstract a neatly-strapped parcel of letters from the desk of sister Agnes: caucy Minnie knew well that these pre cious epistles were love-letters, and any young lady of eighteen, will be ready to vote our little Minnie ...

PUBLISHING FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

PUBL I §HIHG FI SD, The present position of the Australian Home Companion urgently demands assistance from its friends. The depressed state of trade is the prin cipal cause of its needing help. If this is given, and that to but a small amount, its prosperity may be secured. The publisher trusts that those who have it in their power will hold out a helping hand. The difficulties of starting a publication are almost insurmountable, but to keep one in existence that has a footing like the Home Com panion is comparatively easy. Donations to the Publishing Fund for assisting the paper will be received with thanks, and acknowledged in its pages from time to time. E. C.
