Poetry. THE SOULS OF THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
THE SOULS OF THU CHILDREN". BY CHARLES MACKAY. " Who bids for the little children, Body, and soul, and brain ? Who bids for the little children Young and without a stain ? ' Will no one bid," said England, " For their souls so pure and white, And fit for all good or evil, The world on their page may write ?" "We bid," said Pest and Famine, " We bid for life and limb ; Fever and pain and squalor Their bright young eyes shall dim. When the children grow too many, We'll nurse them as our own, And hide them in secret places, Wrhere none may hear their moan." "I bid," said Beggary, howling, " I bid for them, one and all ! I'll teach them a thousand lessons To lie, to skulk, to crawl ! They shall sleep in "my lair, like maggots, They shall rot in the fair sunshine ; And if they serve my purpose, I hope they'll answer thine." " And I'll bid higher and higher," Said crime with a wolfish grin, " For I love to lead the children Through the pleasant paths of sin. They shall swarm in the street...

Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
Inuü (larker. (Continued from page 108J IT was late on the following mornino" 1 when Henry awoke from a heavy sleep. He had thrown himself into his berth overnight in a state of helpless intoxication, without undress- ing. The gale had raged furiously during the night-a heavy sea had broken on board and carried away the longboat, galley, all the bulwarks on the lee side, and alas ! two of the sailors also, and had caused the vessel to leak badly-still Henry had slept on unconscious of his danger. We will not attempt to describe his feelings as lie staggered put of his cabin with great difficulty-from the excessive motion of the ship and the debility consequent on his late excess. The captain was lying on the sofa in the cuddy snoring like the roar of a volcano, and as Henry attempted to pass him to get to the spirit locker, a violent lurch of the ship precipitated him head foremost on to the captain, who started up and let out a volley of oaths and curses as he rubbed his inflamed ë...

The Children's Portfolio. BOYS, DON'T IMITATE! [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
BOYS, DON'T IMITATE ! " MY father," says the Kev. Andrew Fuller, "was a farmer, and in my younger days it was one great boast among the ploughmen that they could plough a straight line across the furrows or ridges of a field. I thought I could do this as well as any of them. One day I saw such a line, which had just been drawn, and I thought, 4 now I have it.' Accor- dingly, I laid hold of the plough, and putting one - of the horses into the furrow which had been made, I resolved to keep him walking in it, and thus secure a parallel line. Bye and bye, however, I observed that there were what might be called wriggles in this furrow, and when I came to them, they turned out to be larger in mine than in the original. On perceiving this, I threw the plough aside, and determined never to be an imitator^ 1. Do what you can as well as you can. " Whatever is worth doing, is worth doing well." Take care that that you do is right ; is worth doing ; and when you have resolved to do it, do it h...
BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. Our readers are probably aware that the prosecution of our work, at the present time, is one of extreme difficulty. Of the importance of sustainingthe publi- cation we ar e more thoroughly convinced than ever; and when looking back upon the path of the past, much that is cheering meets our eye. During the last year alone, upwards of thirty-four thou- sand copies of the JOURNAL were distri- buted, and upwards of seventy thousand since it first appeared, visiting in town and country hundreds of homes, carrying to their inmates lessons of love, kindness and instruction, and affording amuse- ment ar?d recreation where perhaps no other would have been supplied. That it has fostered and sustained a strong public opinion against our present destructive drinking customs, we have had re- peated proofs during its history. In several instances it has been solely instru- mental in forming in different parts of the country, those interesting and impor- tant juvenile literar...
WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
WOMAN. 4 (\| T is not good that the man should be alone ; I will make him an hèlp meet for him," is the voice of GOD touching the purpose for which ^ he chose to create woman. Moulded to a form of matchless beauty by the fingers of our divine artificer, and above all born with a soul laden with the sweetest love, woman has been from all times a mighty help-meet for man, to ease his steps across life's " burning marie." Not infrequently, indeed, she has ascended thrones to promulge laws to masses. VICTORIA has done so : her fame has spread to the uttermost corners of the earth, and her name will be handed down through all times as a queen, who lived more in the hearts of her people as a mother, than reigned as a ruleteras one who gazed upon them from afar, and stooped but to inflict chastisement. Never- theless, to our mind, woman's grand and peculiar province is to adorn, ag well as lavish her rich affections within, the circle of man's hallowed HOME. Wherever Ignorance and its foul...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
CHAPTER II. " Poor indeed thou must be, if around thee Thou no ray of li^ht and joy canst throw; If no silken cords of love hath bound thee To some little world through weaFand woe." Mrs. Dean had a large family. The boys when mere infants mounted a horse and rode out after the stock ; and the. girls ran in a great measure wild. They were all tall grown children, with fresh, ruddy complexions, for we were in a district where snow fell in winter, and the air was at all times bracing and pure. They were not shy, for though they saw few strangers, they were accustomed to see those treated like friends, and made much of ; and I soon found myself surrounded by cheerful faces, and young voices rising in their eagerness to interest me in pet calves and foals, and other little possessions. " My dears," you will trouble Miss Varden ; run away and play. Polly, take the little ones." I honoured that mother when I saw how promptly she was obeyed, and how quickly the eager group dispersed ; and ...
Sunday Morning at the Dibdins [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
Sankt Ponting at % gibbins. " JANE," suddenly exclaims Mrs. Dibdin, " do you know it is nearly time for your Sabbath School to commence? I hope you have committed your hymns and commandments to memory. Put on your little jet bracelet, and your ruffled pantalettes. Now, say the third com- mandment, while I fix your curls. It does seem to me as if your hair never curls half as well on Sundays as on week days. Mind, you ask Letty Brown where her mother bought that cunning little straw hat of hers-not in Sabbath School, of course-that would be very wicked-but -after it is over, as you walk along to church. "Jane, what's the chief end of man? Don't know ? Well, it's the most as- tonishing thing that that Assembly's Catechism don't stay in your head any better ! It seems to go into one ear and out of the other. Kow pay particular attention while I tell you what the chief end of man is. The chief end of man is -is-well-I-why don't you hold still? -you are always putting a body out! You had...

The Indian Relief Fund. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
%\t $nbi¡tn %t\iû $uù, * WITH one accord the hearts of the Sydney people béat sympathetically for the Indian sufferers. The late »««ting in the School of Arts was in truth an enthusiastic one. I do not think that Sydney people ever listened ; to more glowing eloquence than they I did last Monday bût one. What with the benignant countenance and gentle voice of the Bishop, uttering burning, heartfelt words of tender sympathy for the sufferers -- the Boanerges appeal of Mr. Cuthbertson to his countrymen, and his bold state- ment of his confidence in the religion of his Saviour, as the grand panacea for all evils-'the emotion of Sir W. Burton, as he told of -his two heroic nephews defending their father and their bungalow to the death--and the nervous, yet manly voice of the Prin- cipal of the University, pleading in poetic, and most exquisitely beautiful strains for Britain's children--every heart was stirred, and all present, of whatever religion,' creed, or political party, were read...
Scenes from a Life Drama. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 10 April 1858
Sffitta foam a fife Brama. BY THE AUTHORESS OF " GERTRUDE." CHAPTER I. (Continued from page 105.) THERE was a place called a township, although it contained not more than half-a-dozen houses, a court house, a lock-up^a store, one or two mechanic's dwellings, and a public house. I needed to make some draperypurchases, and Angas took me to this place. As we passed the low verandah building there were horses fastened to posts ; one I had seen rode by Prince, and remarked so. " Yes," he said, with a cold bitter- ness, " that is where he passes many of his days, drinking with stockmen." I started. " Prince !" he continued, " a prince of drunkards-a brave distinction. Poor pitiful creature ! Etheline, he might have been a gentleman, a man of wealth, but for this vice. And after all there is little superiority in those who give way to an occasional debauch, or those who drink in private, to those weak, ungoverned wills which have no power to resist the constant recurrence of such habits." ...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
^vp'HERE is a story told of a man who, dying, left his sons a small patch (ly of land, giving them at the same time the exciting information that underneath lay hid untold treasure, which careful search with spade and pick would reveal to their wondering eyes. They searched long and carefully, but no yellow dust discovered its glistening beauties ; a well-cultivated farm and splendid crops were the only reward of their ardent toil, and the only mine from which the riches which they eventually became possessed of were procured. Whether the gold-seekers of Australia will be the means of developing the riches of her soil in like manner, time will tell; one principle, however, is clear-that the pursuit of an apparently secondary object has gained objects of the first importance, which had been looked upon as of hopeless attainment. A M'CLTJRE goes to seek for the lost exploiter of northern seas-Sir JOHN FRANKLIN-but instead he finds the north-west passage, the long-sought prize that hun...
