CHARADES, &c. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

' c H A R A D E S, &c. I. DR. BUSBY kept a school; Dr. Busby sat on a stool, And thrash'd the boys with his ferule! Grammar, from A to Swine-t&x, He taught them with strokes upon their backs, 'Counts from 1 to Rule o' Three He taught them likewise as easily.

NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

NOTICES Thb annual meeting of the Sydney East Auxiliary to the Wesleyan Missionary Society was held on Monday evening, in the Wesleyan Chapel, Bourke-street. T. W. Bo-v^den, Esq., presided. The report was read by the Rev. S. Ironside, from which it appeared that the society's income for the past year was £10,000. IT would *be to some extent a neglect of the duty which we owe to our readers, if we fail to allude to the unprecedented mass of evidence that has reached us, in proof of the remedial efficacy of . Du Barry's Hevalenta Arabica Food,' in many disorders which whilst most painful and distressing in their symptoms, have, at the same time, through their obstinacy and continuity, been inaccessible to medical skill, we have looked over some of the lists of heartfelt testimony to the benifical effects of this Food, in various and complicated stages of disorder. Upon fifty thou sand authenticated certificates, we have the 'great' and auspicious fact, that, for the first time in the ...

Answers to Questions. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

Answers to Questions. 152.-A. A.-Not unless the regiments have volunteered for foreign service. X. X. X 153.-IDOL. - Grammar. Both are correct. Government is a noun of multitude, and may be used according to the taste or convenience of the writer, either in the singular or the plural. G. B.M. If IDOL look into 1 Murray's English Grammar,' Syntax, Rule 4, he will immediately perceive that the sentence, ' The Government is very backward,' is grammatically correct;-the word Government is a noun of multitude, conveying unity of idea, therefore the verb, is, must agree with it in num ber and person. A noun of multitude, or signify ing many, conveying to the mind plurality of idea must have a verb agreeing with it in the plural number ; as, ' My people do not consider.' W. B-. M. 155.-M.

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PARTS. CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PABTS. CHAPTER VI. WHEN Harry reached Revau, he found, as he expected, Annie awaiting his arrival; she was sitting alone before the fire, looking dreamily into the glow ing embers. Sometime before she had sent Jenny to bed, but hearing a step, concluded it was her returning for some thing, so did not move ; Harry watched her for some minutes then spoke ; with a scream she started, 4 Oh, how you frightened me!' * I am very sorry, but I thought you saw me come in,' he drew his chair be side her'sy but after the few words of enquiry respecting her father had been answered, they sat in silence. Harry had much to think of; besides that inexhaustible theme, the perfections of the loved one, and Annie was satisfied if her cousin was with her. No, not quite, for looking at his silent face she thought * I have no part in his meditations. She was wrong, for he was thinking whether it would not be better to tell Annie at once of his engagements. 4 Not t...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 415) A door opened, in a country place, a few miles farther west, the next day but one after this occurrence in Soresby, and a man walked in, with his head hanging very low, and his gait being very un steady, but not with drink. He was rather better attired than Trhen we parted with him at the cab stand; but his appearance was not re assuring to the cottagers-a woman and a girl of about nine or ten years of age. After a sort of rough apology, Dan, in very few words, asked for Cicely, and learned that she had left the workhouse some time ago, and was in service away in Soresby,-the very town through which, of course, he had just come, on his way to the neighbourhood of Latson Tower*. Stuggs had no difficulty about the distance or the trouble of returning. Bat he entertained the strongest re luctance to be anywhere near Soresby again for a long time to come. It is not known whether he had any acquaintance or relationship with Dame G...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY XXXIV AUSTRALIAN EGRET. Herodias Syrmatophorus. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HIS so. xxxit. AUSTRALIAN EGRET. Herodias Syrmatophorus. THIS noble species of Egret-the largest of the group inhabiting Aus tralia-is very generally dispersed over all parts of the country, and is equally met with along the rivers and lagoons of the interior, as well as in the neigh bourhood of the coast. It was formerly frequently seen on the Hunter, but has retired to more secluded rivers. It is of an exceedingly shy and distant disposition, and can only be approached within range by the utmost care and caution. Its powers of wing are considerable, and like Other herons, it occasionally per forms long continued flights, at a great height in the air; its food consists of fish, frogs, acquatic insects,'&c. When on the ground, its snowy plumage pre sents a strong and pleasing contrast to the green lodgy, and other herbage, clothing the river banks. Some speci mens are found adorned with the long ^hite plumage represented above; while in others it is entire...

TEN YEARS OF PREACHER LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

TEN YEARS OF PREACHER LIFE. . TEN YEARS OF PJBEACHER LIFE' is an American work by W. H. Milburn, author of ' Rifle, Afce, and Saddle-bags ;' it abounds with life-like description of character and incidents; In a future number we propose giving a more lengthened notice of the work; at pre sent we must content ourselves and our readers with an extract: ' You are borne by the majestic flood of the Mississippi from the wild-rice lakes of the frozen North, to where its tawny waves are lost in the blue bosom of the summer gulf; emerging from regions where moss and lichens only grow, and the frost king holds almost perpetual court, to gardens of orange and pomegranate, where the magnolia sheds her perfume; while the deep silences are broken only by the paddle's dip, the crack of the rifle, the scream of the steam whistle, and the buffet of the engine's fleshless arms beating the stream to foam. Primeval woods ovei shadow the skirts of savannas undulat ing out of sight. Wood-crowned bluffs ...

HINTS FOR HOMES. DR. KITCHENER'S RULES FOR MARKETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

HINTS FOR HOMES. KITCHENER'S RULES FOR MARKETING. THE best rule for marketing is to pay ready money for everything, and to deal with" the most respectable tradesmen in your neighbourhood. If you leave it to their integrity to supply you with a good article, at the fair market price, you will be supplied with better pro visions, and at as reasonable a rate as those bargain-hunterg, who trot' around, around, around about' a market till they are trapped to buy some unehewable old poultry, tough top-mutton, stringy cow-beef, or stale fish, at a very little less than the price of prime and proper food. With savings like these they toddle home in triumph, croacking all the way, like a goose that has got ancle-deep in good-luck. Ah! the skill of the most accomplished cook will avail nothing unless she is furnished with fine pro visions. The best way to procure these is to deal with shops of established character, you may appear to pay ten per cent, more than you -vould were you to deal wit...

GOOD POINTS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

GOOD POINTS IN HORSES. 1 HAVING briefly noticed a few of the prominent and essential qualities possessed by a good horse, let us now turn oar attention towards a few of those failings found constituting what may be termed a bad horse. If we have made ourselves thorough masters of what is right.it will not be difficult to detect what is wrong. We shall have occasion to speak of two distinct forms of weak ness ; the first is termed the predispos ing cause. that is, a state of organisation so developed as to render the part or parts liable to disease, whenever the animal machine may be put to a fair course of labour; the second state con sists in the actual existence of disease, or disorganisation of the parts. Now in prosecuting this, as in every other department, always act upon a fixed plan; this not only facilitates your move ments when persevered in, but makes one feel always at home, bringing with it a calm, confident, and masterly style. We are about to commence a minute examina...

THE GREAT SPIRIT AND AN INDIAN WAR-CHIEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

THE GREAT SPIRIT AND AN INDIAN WAR-CHIEF. DUBING the recent sojourn in our city (New York) of the Indian princess Nab ne-bah-wee-quay, or upright woman, on an embassy for her red brethren to Queen Victoria, she related in a simple, childlike manner the following narrative of the ope^tion of the Holy Spirit directly upon the mind of a war-chief, unaided by any human agency whatever, which was felt to be instructive to those who heard its recital, and it is thought would be interesting to others. T?hi& chief, belonging to the Ojibways, near Owen's Sound, Lake Huron, was a poor pagan, and lived, prior to the civilised condition now witnessed, amongst a remnant of that once powerful tribe, reduced at present to about one thousand souls, embracing parts of other tribes also, and was noted for his strong and noble frame, his fearlessness in danger, and his remarkable success in the chase. It so happened, whilst yet a young man, with a wife and family surrounding him, he left the c...

HOW TO GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 November 1860

HOW TO GET THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS. [Concluded from page 493.] IN 1852 an Englishman and two Ger mans came from the mines, with a united capital of thirteen hundred dollars. They bought six hundred and forty acres of land and farmed it. Last year one of the Germans sold his share in the increased concern for nine thousand dollars. ' Some years ago, an intimate ac quaintance of ours, a German, in com pany with another as partner, bought a farm, and took to cultivating it and raising cattle. He now owns upwards of fifteen thousand acres of land, and is ?worth pretty well nearly one thousand dollars. This person, too, began with out a halfpenny.' The cultivation of fruits and vege tables, especially in the vicinity of large cities, is, if skilfully managed, almost uniformly a profitable business. An acre of superior pear trees has pro duced to their owner 2,650 dollars in one season; and supposing thirteen bushels to the tree, and the price four dollars per bushel, it is possible fo...

HABITUAL DRUNKENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 November 1860

I HABITUAL DRUNKENNESS. THE Melbourne Argus of Saturday, the 1st instant, contains the following among its reports of the pieviouB day's proceedings in the Assembly Bill to prevent Habitual Drunkenness.--Mr. Enabling moved for leave to bring in a bill for the more effectual prevention of the crime of habitual drunkenness, and for many years he had been casting about the means of putting a stop to the great social curse of habitual drunken ness. As the law at present stood in the colony, no good could be done with persons of that class. He had, however, found in the New York statutes an act in which habitual drunkenness was placed in the same category with idiotcy, lunacy, and vagrancy. The Americans were, they all knew, an eminently practical people. With reference to the matter in question, the Legislature of the colony recognized the sin, but no action would be taken until some awful crime hed been committed. In New York, on the contrary, upon information laid before two justices ...
