LOOKING ON THE BRIGHT SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
LOOKING ON THE BRIGHT SIDE. HERE is a letter from a wife in Massa- &nbsp; chusetts to her husband in California. &nbsp; She don't intend going through the world with the blues :-' My dear Hus- band :-As it is now some time since you left for California, I suppose that you would be glad to hear how we are getting along in your absence. I am happy to say that we are enjoying very good health on the whole. Just at pre- sent two of the boys have got the small- pox. Amanda Jane has got the typhus fever. Betsey is down with the measles. Samuel got hooked by a cow the other day, and little Peter has just chopped off three of his fingers with a hatchet. It is a mercy he didn't chop them all off. With these trifling exceptions we are all well and getting along nicely. You needn't be at all anxious about us. I almost forgot to say that Sarah Matilda eloped last week with a tin pedler. Poor girl ! She's been waiting for the last ten years for a chance, and I'm glad she's &a...
INTELLIGENCE. MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
INTELLIGENCE. MELBOURNE. THE following notice from our valued correspon- dent Captain Hoseason, shouklhavebeen inserted in our last issue : "The various Bands of Hope are to have a great -demonstration on the 16th instant, they are to march through the city displaying their elegant and costly banners, and at night are to have a grand entertainment at the Exhibition." Many of the ELITE of our city will take a part in the days proceedings. AMERICA.-We learn that in the summer of 1857 a "Home for the fallen" was established in Bos- ton. It has already had about four hundred inmates, most of whom have been dismissed in a hopeful condition, and many entirely reclaimed from intemperance. Some of the newspapers report that the recent revivals in this country have been the cause of a great decrease of drunkenness. At one town in Illinois nearly the whole mass of the population turned their attention to Temper- ance, and by the force of a well-expressed public opinion expelled every liquor-s...

FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. -« How TO RAISE BB AN s-A man in Mis- souri planted some beans late one after- noon, and next morning they were up thanks to his hens. AN editor at a dinner table being asked if he would take some pudding, replied, in a fit of abstraction, 'Owing to a crowd of other matter, we are unable to find room for it.' THE ORDER OF THE DAY.-The advice given by an Irishman to his English friend, on introducing him to a regular Tipperary row, was, ' Wherever you see a head, hit it.' A LATE Duke of Norfolk was much addicted to the bottle. On a masquerade night, he asked Foote what new charac- ter he should go in. ' Go sober V said Foote. WHERE THE SHOE PINCHES.-'What's the matter there, Cora ? Don't your shoes fit ?' ' No, papa : they don't fit me at all. ' They don't even squeak when I walk.' SMOKING.-'Does smoking offend you?' asked a landlord of his newly-arrived boarder. ' Not at all, sir,' 41 am very glad to hear it, as you will find your chimney smokes dreadful. A GE...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. POOR AMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. -? POOR AMY. ISN'T Christmas a happy time ? I'm sure you will all say ' yes 1' Then, we talk of excursions to Manly Beach, or Watson's Bay, or perhaps to Middle Harbour with the Temperance party ; Or we plan fishing excursions, or Cricket matches, and never think of school or lessons because it is holiday-time, and we may enjoy ourselves without neglect- ing our duty. Do you remember last ' Christmas time ; how happy we were. At home everything and every-body seemed busy preparing puddings, and tarts, and cakes, and lots of other things that our kind mothers were making be- cause it was Christmas time. Happy ourselves, we dreamt not that others were in misery, Sorrow dwelt in many homes last Christmas day, for the evil spirit of Australia had spread bis black wings over them, and written ' Desola- tion.'-Let us glance into one such home. 'Amy, darling, is that you?' said the voice of a poor sufferer, in one of the meanest dwellings in Sydney, asa gentle hand op...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 130.) THUS in erecting two classes of build1 ing, one more decorated and higher rented for the Artisan class, the other simpler, almost wholly unornamented, and much cheaper for the distinctly labouring masses, such as that to which the Appleshaws belonged, it would not . be only necessary to lay down a body of rules for the proper governance of such incorporated dwellings, as is in some degree already the case with the Metro politan model buildings, but to enforce such rules by constantly resident officials, whose powers of course should be defined, as is with the police, but whose dutiet would be somewhat analogous to the Parisian concierge. To talk of perfece liberty-of a man's house being " his castle " and so on, with respect to a class of persons, who know nothing of decency, cleanliness, order, or good manners is [literally nonsense. We do not talk of liberty to children, or let them run wild to effect what evil they please, ...

CHAPTER XVI. HOPLOW SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 March 1859
CHAPTER XVI. HOPLOW SCHOOL. Though Margaret had been brief in what she said respecting Liddy and her school, it had been quite sufficient to give Norman great uneasiness. This the more from perceiving that some- thing wag held in reserve, and during his little journey into Kent that day, various plans respecting his London life, and his management of his darling child, passed through his mind. The lodging question was at the root of all his trouble, and the evils likely to result therefrom. Ponder as he would he could see no method of extrication. His employers necessitated his residence in the neigh- bourhood of his work, and there rents were so high, and the houses so densely crowded, as to leave scarcely any choice. If he left the Tadcasters-if he took lodgings in another house of the same class-the evils he suffered from would only start up in a new form, as the same set of causes were in existence, turn which way he might. The men with whom he worked, and those with whom he oth...

SIGHTS AND SCENES IN SYDNEY, BY EVERA.RD EVERGREEN, THE YOUNGER, GENTLEMAN. A - *To, III.-THE KOCKS. FIRST SKETCH. AN hour on the acropolis of Sydney i not without its interest, pictorial, philosc phic, and historical. I don't know whethe a lounge or ramble there gratifies or satis fies the visiter by day, but I can bea testimony to their salutary effects a night-not sombre, tenebrous night not starless and melancholy night ; bu night in its robes of empassioned blui gemmed with golden stars-night wit] its crescent moon exquisitely silvering th ribbed breast of the waters-night hal luminous, half shadowy !-such a nigh in fact as that of Sunday, 13th of March in the current year of grace. It seems to me a strange anomaly tha the finest and healthiest promenades ir large cities are so generally neglected bj the great crowds. It seems stranger tha' Debating Societies- those imposing congresses where all the incongruities o life, social and moral, are so eloquently discussed-have never ...
Oar Advertising Sheet. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
Oar Advertising Sheet WE would make the remark to our suDscmers, that the paper on which the advertisements are printed is so much addition to the book and not an encroachment upon the publication itself. We know ' with how much avidity the Horn; COMPANION is everywhere read, that we are not surprised that our readers should wish it to contain very much more reading than it does: we could not at present give another page without endangering its exist ance. The instant our circulation warrants our doing so, nothing will give us greater pleasure, than to enlarge our sheet.

INTELLIGENCE. Parramatta. THIS society is in a flourishing condition. The usual meeting was held last Wednesday evening, and on Wednesday, April 18th, the second anniversary of this society, will be celebrated by a Tea and Public Meeting. The president Mr. John Meale, will preside. Among other marks of progress we notice that a branch has been formed under very favourable circumstances at Castile "EKIIH lately. DH. CAJLPENTEB.-We Boston Temperance Visitor -wish that more of the productions of this eminent English writer on Temperance could be distributed and read in this country.

CHARADES. ? h -' My first is for craftliness ever renown'd, And oftentimes sport it affords; My next a small portion of dress will be found, That with poverty never accords, In a word of eight letters my whole stands reveal'd 'lis a plant that is common In wood and in field.

My first, I am certain all of us possess, We oft lose it when we are not well; My second the sportsman doth often caress, After toiling through field and through dell; The slave has good reason, alas! to confess, That my whole does in fieetness exoell.

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILTERPEN. (Continued from page 146.) As seen from the other side, where a broad carriage-way swept close up to it, and where a small lawn nicely kept j blended with the woodland, it proved to j he a place of much greater pretension than would be at first suspected, and i evidently not only not to let, but far beyond the compass of Norman's means I if even it were. It seemed furnished too, for through the chinks of the shutters he could detect in the dim light tables and chairs, in what appeared to be a kitchen. 'Still,' thought Norman, 'those to whom it belongs, might n't mind letting part of it for a few weeks. So as there '11 be no harm in asking, I will go back to the wheelwright's cottage, and learn what I can.' He did so, and found in the pleasant farmhouse-like kitchen a middle aged woman and a very young man, seated at a little supper table. Their respect able and kindly manners struck Norman greatly, and they in turn felt attracted towards him. ' No! the ...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. POLITICS BY THE FIRESIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
®j|e Australian Home Compnion,' AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. POLITICS BY THE FIRESIDE. THEBE are many quiet well-meaning men who rather pride themselves on their abstinence from all the excitement and quarrels of politics. Their disposition i* alien to the noisy strife. Their tastes and habits lead them away from the publia arena. And under this feeling they often shirk even those obvious duties of citizen ship, which in a free country devolve on almost every man, and which cannot be very generally neglected without injurv to the commonwealth. Yet haw closely pub lic policy touches the affairs of home'may be seen in a striking light by a glance at the present state of Europe. The Emperor of the French on New Year's Day, instead of wishing a happy new year to all the fifty millions of his subjects, addressed a few studied words of ambiguous yet apparently hostile meaning to the Austrian Ambassador-words which flew with lightning rapidity over the length and breadth of Europe, reverbera ...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. _ DEAR MB. EDITOR.-The Fashions of course will form the principal subject of interest this time for your lady friends. Here is one great novelty in dress. The skirt is composed of alternate breadths of violet terry velvet and black cut vel vet. It is quite plain, but very full and long. The two side breadths are trimmed with elegant passementerie, violet and black. High body made to match the skirt. Small full sleeves, in alternate stripes of violet and black, with epaulette and cuff covered with passem enterie to match that on the skirt. Tarlatine will not be the fashion this winter; tulle will be more worn. Tulle dresses with two skirts, the upper ones raised with bouquets, will be very gene rally adopted. The materials most in favour for this season for neglige are gros d'Ecosse, terry velvet, ottoman velvet, imperial velvet, and tweed. These materials are all very thick and warm. The skirts are generally made plain-it is even con sidered good taste not to put any ...
THE ACTOR AND THE MINISTER, LATELY IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
THE ACTOR AND THE MINISTER, LATELY IN SYDNEY. uWHY, " enquired a celebrated trage dian of a minister, on leaving a certain port in which the steam vessel in which they voyaged, had been for a time detained for repairs u why, did you not come with the other passengers to see the performance in the theatre ?" The minister replied, " I was preach ing in the church on the Sunday, and I did not dare by my example to lead any of those who heard me to the theatre on. the Monday." "But what barm could it have done either them or you to have come?" was the next enquiry. " If you will have patience with me, for a few moments," said the minister, 41 will place before you a circumstance which cannot fail to convince you that gentlemen of my cloth, cannot too care fully avoid every thing which may lead others to temptation. And I know you have candour enough to allow, whatever may be your opinion of the theatre in itself considered, that there are many seductions which the wicked have con nected...
SHATTERED BY THE FIRST STORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
SHATTERED BY THE FIRST STORM. AT the ripe age of twenty-one Harry Melville decided to go into business on iiis own account. ' Wait until your are twenty-five,' said Harry's prudent father. ' And lose four years!' returned Harry, almost with indignation. ' It is folly.' 4 And gain ten,' said old Mr. Melville. 4 The earlier a young man goes into busi- j ness the oftener he has got to fail before he grows wise enough and strong enough for success. My advice is to wait until you are thirty. There will be ten chances in your favour then to one in your favour now.' Harry, however, considered his father old-fashioned, and behind the times, and so let his prudent counsel go for naught. Harry had been three years in a city house, and considered himself fully post ed up in business matters, and quite equal to the common run of traders. Indeed, his talk on matters of trade was quite edifying; and an uninitiated listener could hardly have failed to give him credit for considerably more know led...
