A DREAM ON THE VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

A DREAM ON THE VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT. Musing on thee, my country ! yesternight, I dreamed a dream A lady, "wondrous fair, "With voice all music, and blue eye* star bright, A crown that well became her parted hair, Sat on a throne that graced a flowery mound O'eriooking many a forest, vale, and hill, Hamlet and city scattered far around Where rivers flowed through meadows green and still. A tear of love stood in her queenly eye, While gazing on the multitude below; A million hearts ready for her to die By holy book bowed down, and vowed the vow: Wise statesman also round that lady stood, Or knelt by tho»o with whom ihey had beenioec: Burying all quarrels for their Country's good, Their Queen, their holy altar, and their laws. Malice and envy seemed uprooted there, Place, power, ambition, sunk into the grave; How changed their looks when they becam* sincere ! The crowd exclaimed ' These will our Caontry save.' Loud was the shout the assembled throng did raise ; Hill, wood, and stream, an...

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

STARTLING FACTS. Tlicly so. Here are a few of them, as reportedly the Reverend Secretary to the Clerical Fund and Poor Clergy Relief Society. A clergyman of twenty five years' standing has for that period had only an ayerage income of £44 per annum. He has now £80 a year, as a curate, in sole charge with a population of 12,000; he is burthened with debt, and has to maintain a delicate wife and young family. A curate, his wife and seven children, lived for two months on bread and water. A poor incumbent, with seven children, has been obliged to build a house, and borrow £300 for the purpose, at six per cent. ; he can never afford animal food for himself and his family more than once a week. An in cumbent, with £50 per annum, has a wife and eight children, another daily expected, and only Is 5d to meet its ex penses. A vicar, who has brought up seven sons and a daughter, in a most creditable manner, writes to the society: -'I stand greatly in need of aid, having a large family to supp...

HOW TO GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

HOW TO GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS. [Continued from page 459.] SECONDLY. The records of labour and the facility for the acquisition of capital are increased by the possession of some PECULIAR KNOWLEDGE OP SKILL. A man's pecuniary value may^ be said to augment in exact proportion to the amount, of his effective intelligence super added to ordinary physical power. The demand for EDUCATED labour in pro gressive countries so far exceeds the supply, that it may, to a certain extent, dictate its rewards. Men, animals, and machines are everywhere working fruit less, or unprofitable for the want of suitable persons to direct their move ments : enterprises of the first magnitude languish for want of competent man agers ; and regions where nature has been most bounteous in her gifts are yet comparatively a wilderness, because the arts and mechanism of civilisation have not been introduced. The soil of Uruguay, for instance, would produce wheat and Indian corn abundantly and luxuriantly: bu...

LOVE, LIFE, AND HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

LOVE, LIFE, AND HOPE. Ian to the infant, lore to the child, The gentle flew of a murm'ring stream, Lull'd by the wind's voice, music mild, Lit by the sun's gay glittering gleam. Life is a paradise, with sweet's o'erflowing; Love is the rose in life's glad garden growing; Hope, the perfume of flow'rets ever blowing. Life to the hopeful, love to the young, Fair and pure as a summer sky ; Gay as the lark's fresh matin song, As he carols his gladsome melody, From the blushing morn's first faint halo, Through the burning glare of the noonday sun^ To the last red tinge of sunset's glow, Proclaiming that the day i» done. Life is ah endless source of pleasure; Hope, bright hope is the hearts'chief bliss ; The deep well of love is the hearts' chief treasure; Hope and love, life's happiness. Life is a rainbow wreath, o'er dull earth bending; Love, the bright sun, its magic fire rays lending; Hope, the prismatic drops, soft colors blending. North Shore. Life to manhood, is like Ocean's voice: ...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL A VOICE FROM THE OCEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

Cju Australian J|omt Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL 4 A VOICE FROM THE OCEAN. OUR duties lie abroad in the world as well as within our domestic circle-to narrow our obligations to our own households, is far from fulfilling the benevolence which Christianity teaches of loving ALL men ; and allowing our affections to go out on the wide world regarding humanity as one family, however diversified as to colour, nation and circumstances. Yet while we thus give wing to our affections, we must not disregard those who lie within us-persons indispensable to our welfare, and to whom we are indebted for numerous services which none others could perform-there is in such a case a reciprocity of benefits, binding each other to good offices, and to friendly obligations. We are no strangers to Sailors-they especially come within the class w» describe-they are incorporated with us in all our relations of life-we are dependent upon them for the world's progress-without them, commerce could not ex...

ROGUES AND ROGUERY, WHOLESALE AND RETAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

ROGUES AND ROGUERY, WHOLESALE AND RETAIL. THE annexed letter from the Melbourne Argus, is by our old friend ' Aqua.' In passing through Flinders-lane a few days ago I saw a miserable-lookiug man steal a box of tobacco, which was too temptingly exposed at the door of a store, when two men, who had been watching the bait, darted out of the store and seized the thief with as much apparent satisfaction as they would have felt in hooking the shark that had just swallowed their aunt. A policeman (who I imagine was also on the watch) quickly presented himself, his face, all over grins, at the immediate prospect of being serviceable to society, and dragged the thief, tobacco and all, amidst a pitiless crowd, to the ' lock-up there, I suppose, to await the formal pre liminaries to his commencing lessons in . drawing' on the rpads, without fees, for a year or two. The foregoing little every-day incident awakened a host of uncomfortable re flections in my mind on the incongruities and anomalie...

PROVERBS WORTH PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

PROVERBS WORTH PRESERVING. HASTY people drink the wine of life scalding hot. Death is the only master who takes his servants without * character. A. sonr-faced wife fills the tavern. Content is the mother of diges tion. When oride and poverty marry together, their children are want andi <jritne. W^ere hard work kills ten, idle ness kills a hundred men. Folly .and pride walk side by side. He that borrows, binds himself with a neigh bour's rope. He that is too good for good advice, is too good for his neigh bour's company. Friends and photo graphs never flatter. Wisdom is always at home to those who call. The finest friends ask the fewest favors.

HINTS FOR HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

HINTS FOR HOMES. HEALTH IN YOUT*.- Late hours, irregular habits, and want of attention to diet, are common errors with most young men, and these gradually, but at first imperceptibly, undermine the health and lay the foundation for various forma of disease in after life. It is a very diffi cult thing to make young persons com prehend this. They frequently sit up as late as twelve, one, or two o'clock, with out experiencing any ill effects; they go without a meal to-day, and to-morrow eat toreplention, with only temporary in convenience. One night they will sleep three or four hours, the next nine or ten; or one night, in their eagerness to get awav into some agreeable company, they will take no food at all; and the next perhaps, will eat a hearty supper, and go tp bed upon it. These, with various other irregularities, are common to the majority of young men, and are, as just stated, the cause of much bad health in mature life. Indeed nearly all the shattered constitutions with which...

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

ART AND SCIENCE. ARTIFICIAL ICB.-M. Carre, of Paris, has recently introduced a machine for the artificial formation of ice which is highly spoken of. The principle is that of the well-known air-pump experiment, in which water is frozen by the abstrac tion of its heat through the evaporation of ether in contact with it; and some of our readers inay remember an ingenious apparatus for carrying on this process on a large scale which was exhibited in Holbron a few years ago. Ice formed in this manner could never, in point of price, compete with the natural produc tion in the vicinity of cheap means of transport; but it is quite possible that it i&ight become an article of merchandise among a wealthy and luxurious com munity out of tht way of ordinary sources of supply, M. Carre's refriger ator consists of a cylindr'cal rase of copper, hermetically sealed in all parts. The upper wall ot this cylinder is pierced with holes, into which copper tubes are fixed with solder. These tube...

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

NURSERY THOUGHT. Do you ever think haw much* work a little child does in a day ? How friyn sunrise to sunset, the little feet patter round-to us-so aimlessly ! Climbing up here, kneeling down there, running to another place, but never still. Twist ing and turning, and rolling and reach ing, and doubling, as if testing every bone and muscle for their future uses. It is very curious to watch it. One who does so may well understand the ddep breathing of the rosy little sleeper, as with one arm tossed over its curly head it prepares for the next day's gymnastics. i ireless through tue aay, tin mat time comes, as the maternal love which so patiently accommodates itself hour after hour to its thousand wants and caprices, real or fancied-a busy creature is a little child. To be looked upon with awe as well as delight, as its clear eye looks trustingly into faces that to God and man have essayed to wear a mask; as it sits down in its little chair to ponder precociously over the white lie yo...

CHAPTER V.—PART II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

CHAPTER Y.-PART II. IT is the same time of day as when we commenced our tale ; Kate Page and he? sister are seated at work outwardly the same. No! not, Kate fov she is thinner and looks different. Alas ! how different! Three months ago had any one told her she would speak of Philip as she had just been doing, or think of him even, she would have imagined impossible. «I do not care, Mary, what you say is, I dare say, true, but I cannot feel pleased or glad to see Philip when he comes home in the state he did last night-I will scold and sulk-and you would do the same: but of course you have Mr. Herbert to speak to, I have no one, for you both defend Philip.' ' No, I do not, Kate dear, but it makes him worse to hear you scold.' ' I Bee how it will end; you will marry and leave me to my wretched home, and the drunkard's wife's early grave perhaps.' She now gave way to an hysterical burst of tears. Mary soothed her, saying,' It is not so bad as you imagine. After shearing Philip will set...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER IX. The Bench and the Dock. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 415) CHAPTER IX. The Bench and the Dock. THERE have been worse dispositions in the world, after all, than that of Dan Stuggs. Indeed, we have just left one standing in a lady's drawing-room. Dan could either he made or marred by his company. He was like one of those chemical landscapes that yoit see sometimes. In the shop-window it is a picture of snow, and bare boughs, and icicles, and everything to chill you and make you shudder. Bring that piece of paper near the fire for a few moments, and the heat colours the ink, and every patch of snow is a bunch of flowers, and all the leaves are on the branches, and "winter has become summer. We have not forgotten how that Stuggs hated himself for letting Cicely go to prison, and how, in a moment, he repented of hard words to Joyce on tha Sunday night. But there is just now another evil fit upon Dan. He has guessed a part of the truth as concerns the county justice, and he reflects on it ...

ADVENTURES AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

ADVENTURE S AT HOME. I RECOLLECT reading a story of a ] Eastern youth in humble life, who wa9 taken by a great man of the country in which he dwplt and made much of, as the saying in the present day is. This lad, after remaining a certain time with the Sheik, at length got tired of bis artificial mode of life and made his exit, returning to his former occupation of a shepherd. A moral might be drawn from this stor y, and would be illustrated by the acts of older and wiser personages than this Eastern boy. How many persons have a partiality for some pursuit aboye everything else. This is a great cause of preventing persons from becoming completely sucked in by the whirlpool of daily tur moil and routine, which is apt to draw human beings within its circle. Some persons have a taste for anything, others for lectures, some for horses and their coincidents, and at the close of life men frequently take to building as a hobby. On this principle a taste for adventure leads the writer somet...

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PARTS. CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TW® FARTS. CHAPTER IV. Thh next morning at an early hour the cousins left Noona; it was a lovely morning, not a cloud dimmed the clear blue sky. After riding on for some time in Bilence, Annie asked Harry, 5 If they ever had such beautiful weather in England.' He answered briefly, and then apparently resumed the train of thought; his companion had been watch ing him for some time and at last asked, . What are you smiling at, Harry ?' # Surely there was nothing in the ques tion to makehim blush like a girl. ' I was building castles. No, 1 am not so ambitious-cottages will do for me, in the air, fair coz.' She did not continue the subject, and presently proposed a gallop; when they stopped to rest their horses, she said,' I wish I could live on horseback.' . Another mile, and we shall be home, said her cousin. 4 Home V she repeated bitterly. * I have none, and wonder you profane the sweet word, by calling the place we are returning to home ; you, t...
