CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. MINNIE'S FIRST CONVERT. [A TALE FOR CHILDREN.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860
4 CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. MINNIE'S FIRST CONVERT. [A TAMJ FOR CHILDREN.] WHENEVER Minnie stayed with Aunt Morrison, she was often sent with her cousin, to take gifts to the poor. Many a poor sick one has taken with relish the slice of blanc mange, or basin of ar rowroot, presented by those fairy fingers; the cooling draught, seemed cooler ; the oranges all the sweeter; when the little Minnie, with a grave look over her sweet face, would perform those acts of love ; she would read and talk to them too, in her own winning way ; and many lips have uttered, that child is an angel, or will be soon ; yet, Minnie did not die young, although the transparent skin, the hectic flush, and brilliant eye, all seemed to foretel consumption. In one of these visits to a little sick child one day, Minnie met with its father, and from that day, John Morgan became one of Minnie's fervent admirers ; when John got warm upon the subject, after dis cussing her virtues, he would finish up with,-' Yes, that ch...

EXCUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860
EXCUSES. A number of excuses for staying at home and not attending the services of the sanctuary on the Lord's Day, taken from the catalogue of Thomas Sleep heavy, of Semi-pagan. ' I slept too long, could not dress in time, it is too cold, too hot, too windy, and my eyes are weak, too much like rain, I have no desire to go, I have no other time to myself, I want to look over toy account books, I must put my papers strait, I have letters to write, I must take some pills, I have a longing desire for a walk in the green fields, I arti tied to my business every other day, no fresh air for me except on the Sabbath, I am i troubled with the asthma and tightness j of chest in church, I feel very tmwell (of the Sunday complaint), I feel myself languid and sleepy, I expect some friends to dine with me to day, I have a severe pain in my head, I must nurse myself a little, I'have not shaved, I do not like 4 the Church's * form of worship, all that prasing every Sabbath for the same things, I d...
LOOK UP! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860
LOOK UP! 'OH, defcr I can't.' 'Can't?' 'No, I can't do anything. Everything I undertake to do goes out of the little end of the horn.' ' Pity about you my friend.' ' Ah, I'm a poor worthless creature: would I could die.' 4 Poor worthless fdol, you mean. If you want to die so bad jost step up here and let me give you an ugly plug-or a plug ugly-between the two eyes. Oh you wouldn't do that? Of coarse you wouldn't. You have too mtioh regard for your milk-and-water complexion. Now let me give you a word of advice, man. If yon really want to die just take a dose of arsenic; but if you love life-and I know you do-just stop that snarling. Eat less at dinner take more exercise. Don't drink too ®*ay sherrycobblers Get up in the morning, and when you have got up, look up I Walk out and see the sun riw -I'll bet a hat you never witnessed that phenomenon. And when you walk, don't walk so much like a walking rag. If you can get stiffening in those knees no other way, just get some potato-starch...
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. LITTLE PENGUIN. Spheniscus Minort [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 October 1860
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. LITTLE PENGUIN. Spheniscus Minori THIS species is very abundant all round Tasmania, and on the south coast of Australia generally, where it frequents those parts of the sea that are favorable to its habits and mode of life, and where the depth of the water is not too great to prevent its diving to the bottom. From the weight of the body and density of the plumage, this bird swims very deep in the water, the head, neck, and upper part of the back only being above the surface. Its powers of progression in the deep are truly astonishing; it bounds through this element like the porpoise, and uses its short fin-like wings, as well as its feet, to assist in its progress; 1 its swimming powers are in fact so great, that it stems the waves of the most turbulent seas with the utmost facility, and during the severest gale descends to the bottom, where among beautiful beds of coral, and forests of sea-weed, it paddles about in searce of small fish and marine vegetab...
The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL INTEMPERANCE: ITS MISERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860
C|t Australian Horn* Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL INTEMPERANCE: ITS MISERIES. THE way of transgressors is hard. Misery and destruction are in their paths. To them paths of peace are utterly unknown. There is no peaee to the wicked. Their life is like a troubled sea, whose waves cast up mire and dirt. Delusion is their only comfort; a seared conscience their only refuge; the wrath to come their only reward. Their bread is ' the poison of asps violence,' worm wood, and gall,' their drink ; and their inheritance anathema. The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked. * 0 that they were wise, that they under stood this, that. they would consider their end!' If the life of sin be without honour and without peace, the end is everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord. Intemperance is the sin of which we now speak ; and what are its miseries ? To the remarks made in former paper, I may here add, waste of property. Millions of money, much of it procured with great c...
CHAPTER X. A WEDDING GIFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860
CHAPTER X.. A WEDDING GIFT. * King it out, then, dear bells, fast and loud ! King it out, then, dear bells, fast and loud! King it out, then, dear bells, fast and loud!' Joined 1 Joined ! ' Ring it out, then, dear bells, fast and loud!' Joined! So spake the belfry of an old Wiltshire church, on a February day-yes, a Wilt, shire church, but not the Soresby one, where Dan and Cicely stopped and looked at the plain stone, beside the gravel-walk. That marriage, they thought, should be delayed-and they delayed it. Dan didn't use the words, but he thought them, I can tell you, that even if he had got work that very hour, when Cicely forgave him, it would only be decent that he should go through a sortiof quarantine, before ever he could, with any face, call that ill-used girl by such a gentle, euphonious name as Mrs. Stuggs. I don't believe, that if he had been offered, that moment, a berth of a thousand a year for reading the Times from ten till four in Somerset House, he would have cons...
INTERESTING EXPRIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860
INTERESTING EXPRIMENT. Iv consequence of an extract in the . Moreton Bay Courier' from a Sydney contemporary as to the effect of arsenic as an antidote to strychnine, a very interesting experiment was instituted at the hospital, Brisbane, on Thursday morning by D. Barton, in the presence of a large party of gentlemen. A dog about six months old was the subject, to which one grain of strychnine was attempted to be administered, but some escaped as the beast appeared to revive after seven minute*, half a graiu more was given him. In about a quarter of au hour the effect was very visible, where upon ten grains were tried, but almost escaped from his struggles. In about fivo minutes violent tetanic twitches ensued, and in two more the dog fell over. Another dose of arsenic was then given, after a lap*e of 5h min utes. The pulsation of tbe heart was 52, and one minute more the dog died. The result appeared to the observers that, so far from acting as a curate, the arsenic really hastened...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. MINNIE'S FIRST CONVERT. [A TALE FOR CHILDREN.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. MINNIE'S FIRST CONVERT. [A TALE FOR CHILDREN.] JUST at this time there was a great stir in the neighbourhood about teetota lism. Mr. Morrison had promised to lend his schoolroom to one of its advo cates; several meetings were held, and at one of them Minnie's dear sister Agnes, and one or two of her cousins, signed the pledge. Minnie had not been convinced, for her dear papa was not a teetotaler. Of couse, if it were necessary, lie would be so, Minnie argued with her self, yet like a great many older people, she thought what a capital thing it was for men who could not keep sober. Now if poor Morgan would sign! Why, thought Minnie, I wonder if I would aign, whether he would. The child thought on this long, her heart was full of benevolence, all save one little corner, of which pride had taken possesion. It was a beautiful summer evening upon which this last meeting was to be held the room was closely crowded, an Minnie, to her great surprise, diseovere upon one...

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860
ART AND SCIENCE. NUTRIMENT IN APPLES. - Chemical researches by Mr. J. Salisbury, of Albany, show that good varieties of the apple are richer in those bodies which strictly go to nourish the system than potatoes are, or, in other words, to form muscle, brain, nerve ; and, in short, to assist in sustaining and building up the organic part of all the tissues of the animal body. - 4 Timb's Curiosities of Science.' A FOREMAN in the Toulon dockyard has just made a discovery which is anti cipated to become of the greatest value to nautical science. It is that of a means whereby the transmission of signals at sea may be carried without limit of words or sentences, and with no more complicated, machinery than four pdles and two balls, which, by their end less change of position, are made to cotivey every order, or warning, or inquiry, in usual requisition at sea. A BELGIAN named Stipheen, of Ghent, has made a discovery whfch may be of some utility; it is that the rusting of nails employed to...

THE KANGAROO HUNT; OR, A MORNING IN THE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860
THE KANGAROO HUNT; OB, A MORNING IN THE MOUNTAINS. BY CdABLES HABPOB. Soon as that lofty wood is past, "While yet its margin shades the last, Comes swimming dim on the staggered eye As if it lay loose against the sky, A prospect wide and vast! The more that morning's mist yet keeps Cragging up in broken heaps Wherever the eyes is cast. Here grassy slopes all greenly gay Save where embrowned with clumps of broom, Heave their broad breasts to the opening day ; There steepy ridges loom Out from a sea-resembling gloom With peaks of iron grey, And bank yon glen that 'neath their throng Of shadows, (a) broken, broad and long, Wind's like a giant's path away. Full in the 'midst a rill's deep course Leads on the eye to its flashing source Welled in yon Alp that wedged between The valley's lips, shuts in the scene. Its high bare back cuts half the blue Expanse of heaven sheer from the view, And thence, forth jutting bluffly,-lo, Its cliffs their time-hewn caverns show ! Broods o'er the whole...

WATERING PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860
WATERING PLANTS, As a rule water should never be given to out-door plants until the further with holding of it would be detrimental to them. Habitual watering does, in the majority of cases, more harm than good. Plants left to battle with drought send their roots down deep in search of mois ture, and when rain does oome, they benefit more by it than those that have regular waterings all along, if the ground is dug deeply and kept in good heart. THE WORLD. The population of the world is now estimated at 1,279,000,000, namely : Asia, 75-5,000,0©0; Europe, 272,000,000 ; Africa, 200,000,000; America, 50,000,000; Australia, 2,000,000.
