A POWERFUL MOTIVE FOR ABSTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
A POWERFUL MOTIVE FOR ABSTAINING. BUT have we not an interest in banish ing this temptation, far higher than any which belongs to money ! If mature habit may have given us a right to feel secure, that in our own persona we can resist all inducements to excess, have we none dear to us to guard from peril, whose habits have to be formed? Have we not our children ? Let not parental fondness close our eyes to their dangers. Let us not indulge too much in those day dreams of their future, in which they are always to do better than we have done, because they are to be made wise by our advice and experience. If we cannot but look upon them as " Our little selves re-formed in finer clay," we must not act on such vain imagin ings. No, not even as to him, the little paragon of the nursery, so pure and sensitive, so gifted with talent, so rich in animal spirits, so ardent and successful in the studies of childhood, and who so revels in its innocent enjoy ments. Beyond a doubt " Spirits are not...
TRUE TO HIS PRINCIPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
TRUE TO HIS PRINCIPLES. A gentleman met another one Satur day, who invited him to dine with him the next day. "I cannot accept your kind invitation for to-morrow," was the answer, " for I never dine out on the Sabbath." Some years after wards the same gentleman was travel ling in a coach, when opposite to him sat another reading from a book which he held in his hand. On looking up they recognized each other, and the reader said, " This is a book which I once did not value much, and it was you who first turned my thoughts to it. It is the Bible." " Indeed," said the other, " I do not remember it." " I suppose not," was the answer; " but I once asked you to dine with me on the Sabbath, and I was quite angry that you gave as a reason for declining that you never dined out on the Sabbath. But the more I felt angry, the more it fixed itself in my mind, until at length it led me to inquire into your principles, and by inquiring into them, I was, by the blessing of God, led to adopt them, ...
THE ECLIPSE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
THE ECLIPSE. WE congratulate those of our readers who escaped the fetters of Morpheus, upon what they saw of the eclipse on Thursday morning, 26th instant, one quarter of an hour only being the time allowed for observation by the inexorable cloudy curtain which hung over the scene. The sun rose in its fullest magnificence and splendour; the view while it lasted was excellent. The edge of the moon, through a telescope, looked jagged and irregular, like the profile of a pine apple clearly showing the mountains on its surface. During the darkness the stars were observed through some of the openings in the clouds. The feathered tribes were evidently greatly concerned, but, so far as our observation went, the animal tribes showed no peculiar symptoms. The darkness, at its climax, seemed to pass away more rapidly than it came on: this was probably owing to the sun being pro portionally higher in the heavens. Our astronomers will no doubt give us all particulars.
NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE FOR THE SUPPRESSION OF INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE FOR THE SUPPRESSION OF INTEMPE RANCE. THE Soiree, under the direction of this society, came off at the School of Arts, on the evening of the 19th March; the attendance was very large and of a highly respectable character. The hall, with its various embellish ments, looked tasteful and chaste; palms, wreaths, flowers, and miniature flags, bearing temperance mottos, formed the ornaments of the walls and pillars. The tables with snowy cloths, looked rich in electro-plate and ; terra cotta, interspersed with vases of elegant shapes, filled with the spoils of the flower-garden, grapes and other fruit, along with the usual tea-table supplies, made its appearance complete. Grace was sung at half-past six o'clock, at which time the hall was well filled, about 450 being present. During tea an Oratorio was performed on the organ by Mr. W. H. Paling, and after the tables were removed Mr. Paling again sat down to that fine instrument. The Chairman, B. MOUNTCASTLE, Esq.,...
GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
GOULBURN. On Wednesday, Feb. 25, a meeting was held, when, after a brief address from Mr. Craig, the magic lantern was exhibited. The views were mostly of a humourous character. The children, of whom there were a numerous attendance, expressed themselves grati fied with the evening's entertainment. On the 11th instant, a lecture on " Alfred the Great" was delivered by Mr. S. F. Blackmore. The lecturer gave a brief sketch of the early history of England. He then proceeded with the life of Alfred, from which he drew many interesting and instructive les sons, and concluded by contrasting the advantages enjoyed in Alfred's days with those possessed in the present times.
AUSTRALIAN BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
AUSTRALIAN BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. With the advice of a large circle of friends the subscription to the JOURNAL in future will be raised to 2s. per quar ter. It has been urged that unless it has a legitimate source of income of its own, sufficient to cover the cost of pub lication, it will never be secure. The sum intended to be raised in its behalf (£100) will not above cover half the loss attending its publication since com mencement, and not quite &lt;£41 has been subscribed at present. The step has been taken with the greatest reluctance on our part-for we feel that cheapness is greatly promotive of a large circula tion-but the old adage has still some force, that " while the grass grows the steed starves We can assure our friends that they may place every confidence in its con tinuing to be published; no effort shall be wanting on our part to render it permanent. The following sums have been sub scribed since last issue : Mr. J. Comiie -----£100 S. Callaghan - - - 1 0 0 M...
Poetry. SONG OF THE SURGERY; OR, TEMPERANCE SONG FOR 18B8. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
SONG OF THE SURGERY;" OR, TEMPERANCE SONG FOR 18B8. IN dressing gown tattered and torn, « His thin hair all lanky and gray, A poor surgeon sat by his surgery fire, And thus he was heard to say Oh! would I had never been born, 'T would much better have been for me, Than here to sit like a being forlorn ; For nobody brings me a fee. Wait, wait, wait, From ten 'till half-past four And not a carriage has stopped at my gate Nor a patient has rapped at my door. Oh! it was not always thus, Not always wait, wait, wait, Without a patient to rap at my door Or carriage to stop at my gate. It was drive-drive-drive, Through hail, and rain, and snow; It was drive-drive-drive As fast as my horse could go; It was pill and blister and draught, Draught and blister and pill 'Till the sight of a phial made me sick, And the smell of it made one ill.. I know what has caused the change, Why my rounds I so seldom go ; 'Tis the Temperance Cduse with its sapient laws That has left me nothing to do. 1 had but...
Tem Hights in a Bar-Room. NIGHT THE SECOND. THE CHANGES OF A YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
Cm flights itt a Dar-Boaii t. ( Continued from page BY T, S. ARTHUR. NIGHT THE SECOND. THE CHANGES OF A YEAR. A CORDIAL grasp of the hand and a few words of hearty welcome greeted me as I alighted from the stage at the " Sickle and Sheaf," on my next visit to Cedarville. At the first glance, I saw no change in the countenance, man ner, or general bearing of Simon Slade, the landlord. With him, the year seemed to have passed like a pleasant summer day. His face was round, and full, and rosy, and his eyes sparkled with that good-humour which flows from intense self-satisfaction. Every thing about him seemed to say-" All right with myself and the world." I had scarcely expected this. From "what I saw during my last brief sojourn at the " Sickle and Sheaf," the inference was natural, that elements had been called into activity which must producc changes adverse to those pleasant states of mind that threw an almost perpetual sunshine over the landlord's coun tenance. How many hundred of ...
Old Caleb. THE FRIENDLY WABNING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 March 1857
©Ib C&lt;tlelr. BY MRS. BEDFORD, (Author of " Annie Leslie$c. Sfc.) (Continued from page 87.) THE FRIENDLY WABNING. ONE fine evening Joseph set out, stick in hand, and firm in purpose, to fulfil his self-imposed task. Rachel was attending to the bee hives, and when she heard the wicket swing back, she looked round to see who had entered. " Oh, Joseph Andrews, is that you?" she said with a pleasant smile. " Why, it is an age since you came to see us; Caleb will be here directly, so come in and rest." Joseph went in and sat down. " I used to cross this threshold very often in years gone by," said he, musingly, " but times are altered, times are altered ; old folk cannot get into young folk's ways; so they are no company for each other: instead of the fathers have risen up the sons, and when a man lives to my age, he sees a new world altogether." " Times will be strangely altered, indeed, when Joseph Andrews does not find a hearty welcome here," re plied Rachel. "Come, let me p...
A BAD TAINT. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
A BA.D TAINT. " What you learn from bad habits and in bad society," says Mr. Gough, " you will never forget, and it will be a lasting pang to you. I tell you in all sincerity, and not as in the excitement of a speech, but as I would confess, and have confessed before God, I would give my riffht hand to-night if I could forget that which I have learned in evil society -if I could tear from ray memory the scenes which I have witnessed, and the transactions which have taken place before me. You cannot take away the effect of a single impure thought that has lodged and harboured in the heart, You may pray against it, and, by God's grace, conquer it; but it will always be a thorn in the flesh to you, and will cause you bitterness and an guish." If we subdue not our passions, they will subdue us. Labour brings pleasure : idleness, pain.
HOW TO MAKE A FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
HOW TO MAKE A FORTUNE. Take earnestly hold of life as capa citated for and destined to a high and noble purpose. Study closely the mind's bent for labour or a profession. Adopt it early and pursue it steadily, never looking back to the turning furrow, but forward to the new ground that ever remains to be broken. Means and ways are abundant to every man's success, if will and action are rightly adapted to them. Our rich men and our great men have carved their paths to fortune, and by this internal principle-a principle that cannot fail to reward its votary, if it be resolutely pursued. To sigh or repine over the lack of inheritance, instead of inheritance, is unmanly. Every man should strive to be creator instead of inheritor. The human race, in this respect, want dignity and dis cipline. They prefer to wield the sword of valorous forefathers, to forging their own weapons. This is a mean and ignoble spirit. Let every man be conscious of the power in him and the providence over him, a...
THE OLD COTTAG CLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
THE OLD COTTAG-E CLOCK. OH, the old, old clock, of the household stock. Was the brightest thing and neatest; Its hands, though old, had a touch of gold, And its chime rang still the sweetest. 'Twas a monitor too, though its words, were few, Yet they lived though nations altered; And its voice, still strong, warned old and young When the voice of friendship faltered. "Tick," "tick," it said-"quick, quick, to bed For ten I've given warning; Up, up and go, or else, you know, You'll never rise soon in the morning." A friendly voice was that old, old clock, As it stood in the corner smiling, And blessed the time with a merry chime, The wintry hours beguiling; But a cross old voice was that tiresome clock, As it called at daybreak boldly, When the dawn looked gray o'er the misty way, And the early air blew coldly: "Tick," "tick," it said-quick, out of bed, For five I've given warning; YouII never have health, you'll never get wealth, Unless you're up soon in the morning." Still hourly the...
TEMPERANCE AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
TEMPERANCE AND RELIGION. THE countless myriads of the human race might become teetotal to morrow without it (teetotalism) teaching one of them their alphabet, or impressing them with a single religious principle. Were teetotalism in the abstract necessarily and inseparably connected with religion, this assertion oould not be made. Drink, on the other hand, enslaves and ruins men, body and soul, and that by thousands and tens of thousands. It might be asked, then, what is Teetotalism's peculiar mission? We reply, not to take people to heaven ; but to save them from going to hell by the road of drunkenness, a road which is now thronged with untold numbers of infatuated travellers, and which the sober, thinking part of the community have the power to close if they will, and cannot neglect doing so without incurring a fearful responsibility. Teetotalism offers at once to close the road; if men refuse her solicitations, the consequences must be chargeable to their account. Those who cont...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
CHOUGH protection to native industry may be dead, encouragement to native talent ought not to be extinct. We fancy there would be no controversy with regard to the latter proposition, applied to the inventions popularly termed useful; but remove the pleadings to art and literature, and we fear the proposition would have few practical believers. This involves considerations which should command the most careful thought of all those who desire for Australia a future worthy of her fine geographical position and wonderful resources. We feel we need not now discuss the abstract questions of the importance of literature and art to a nation, or the relative value of the application of thought to the increase of our physical comforts or to the supply of our mental and moral requirements. As general theories, most minds are satisfied on these questions. Where opposition begins is when the necessity of colonialism in our literature is asserted, and appeal is made for encouragement of the same...
Old Caleb. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
Caleb. BY MRS. BEDFORD, (Author of " Annie Leslie$~c. Sfc ) (Continued from page 104.) LONG after Joseph had left, Rachel stood at the window straining her eyes up and down the road as though she would fain pierce the dusk of the evening, and, if possible, look into the town two miles beyond. When it was too dark to distinguish a single object, the mother still remained. She was loath to close the shutters, it would make, it appear so late. She lingered till the blackness of night had shut out every object. Caleb watched her a long time in silence, and his thoughts had been much occupied in reflecting upon what Joseph Andrews had been saying. At length he said, " Where is Frank ? does he often stay out so late ? You know, Rachel, I am generally obliged to go to bed at nine, or I could not rise at four. I ask, does he often stay out like this ? " "Not very often," replied Rachel with hesitation, "he has done so a few times; but this is a dark evening," she continued excusingly. "You ...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
OUR MESSAGE. IT gives us very great pleasure to see the gradually increasing interest that is gathering around the subject of Temperance. The three several leading articles that have appeared in the Empire, in reference to th.e "Alliance," show the talue and importance that that journal attaches to a systematic and combined effort for the eradication of the evils resulting from drink, from which the colony i» suffering. We feel convinced the men of the colony have a heart and are generous and patriotic; that they have long wept in spirit over the ills they believed they could not cure; and that they really breathe more freely when they know that some are really desperate enough to attempt a reform, though, at the same time, looking upon the object as a forlorn hope that can never run the gauntlet of the file of difficulties that stand ready to cut it off;-but still ready to applaud, from their very souls, any success that may attend the movement. Such, for some time to come, will be...
