Answers to Questions. 151.-L. J. J.-The art of making glass -was introduced into England from France in the year <574, for the use of churches and monasteries. Benedict Biscop, who in that year founded a jaonastry, and attached to it an elegant church of stone, after the Roman manner, prevailed on some glass makers of France, to come over and glaze the windows. These artificers not only performed the work assigned to their., but also taught the English how to make windows, lamps, and drink ing vessels. Before that period, the windows of houses and churches, were filled either with linen, doth, or lattices of wood ; and even in the twelfth century, glass windows in private houses were very rare. C.

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 November 1860

^ THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PARTS. On the sofa in the sitting-room at Noona, we shall see Philip-how changed^! Flushed face, bloodshot eyes, and shak ing hands, were the outward signs of the demon; but the change within was far more incurable; for temperance could restore him his health; but nothing, the love and confidence of those who loved him, nothing, his own self-respect. Kate was dressing Minnie, which finished, her father called her to his side, she obeyed and standing beside him said, ' Papa, I am sorry you have a head ache, shall I put my cold hand on your forehead-there is not that nice ?' . Yes, darling, will you go with papa to-day 1' 'Yes.' Philip closed his eyes, at that moment something whispered, 4 do you deserve her caresses?' Now was the time for Kate to speak. Alas! she looked sullen, not sorry, his asking Minnie to go with him added fuel to the flame, her caresses also annoyed her, 1 she could not do more for me,' she thought 4 while her father ne...

C|e ^Hstndian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL « A PEEP INTO THE PAST. BY way of contrast, it might be as well to turn over a few leaves of the Colony's past history, by doing so we shall find we have much to be grateful for in the change that has taken place with rega-rd to its drinking customs. An English writer, speaking of New South Wales, says : I have witnessed enough to stir up the depths of my soul. Possibly I have had more than an average opportunity of seeing ' the various forms of human woe' produced by this sin of sins. Some thirty years ago, events, in the course of gracious Providence, set me down in one of the English Colonies at our antipodes, where I continued many years, freely mixing with all classes. Here were convicts, emancipists, and emigrants. Strong drink was the fatal ?enemy of all, the demon of the land. The evil spirits of ' the bottle' (would they were corked up there) were let loose upon us, and became one of our constant and grievous tormentors...

THIS emperor Tiberius is, perhaps, the most striking example which the world has ever seen of the statement, that the greatest talents not onty become of little or no use, but even lead people to greater evil, when joined to a bad heart. He came to the throne with an excellent genius for business, great skill and courage as a general, and an un equalled knowledge of mankind. What then was wanting to ma,ke him a great prince? Nothing but a good heart to direct his heart. Being without that, he became the most gloomy, if not the most bloody, of all the tyrants that the world has ever seen. Tiberius was about fifty when he became emperor of Rome, and not having till then appeared worse than other men, it was never expecte...

JOHN B. GOUGH'S DESCRIPTION OF ALCOHOL. SATAN'S VICE-GERANT, EARTH'S SBEATEST CURSE. WE might almost fancy Satan seated upon his high ;and burning throne in Pandemonium, crowned with a circle of everlasting fire, calling aronnd him his satellites, to show their respective claim for certain privileges, by the power once possessed more than another to bring man to that burning lake. We may imagine mammon, the meanest of all the gods, standing up, and saying, ' Send me, I can send men from their homes, across the burning desert, or the track less ocean, to fight and dig in the earth for yellow dust: and so harden the heart that the cry of the widow and the fatherless shall be unheard. I will so stop up every avenue to human affection, that my victim shall stand as if made of metal he loves, and when the cold fingers of Death are feeling for his heart strings, he shall cling closer and closer to his heart the bag of yellow dust, which is the only god he ever worshipped.'

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

I SPIRIT RAPPING. OBSERVING our contemporaries have' quoted an article upon the Spirit Rap ping mania in England, we present our readers with an extract from ' All the Year Round,' which gives a totally i different aspect to the matter. i In a small street off' one of the west central squares lives two women, one old the other young, both mediums. To them went I and another party of friends some believing, others wholly sceptical, others like myself of no fixed opinion fcut anxious to know the truth : when we entered, a clergyman was interogating the spirits, and seemed much edified by their answers, after a time he took up the Bible from the floor, and turned the leaves till he came to some which the spirits had doubled, while under the table: but which he scarcely found applicable to his present question. However, he helped the spirits and the medium handsomely out of the difficulty, by saying that they bore on the subject of his last week's lectures : but as it would be rather ha...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HIST NO. xxxy. NANKEEN NUiHT HERON. Quaker (Colonists) Mycticorax Caledonicus. THIS beautiful species is universally dispersed over the whole of Australia, but is far less abundant on the western than on the eastern coast. In the southern latitudes it is only a summer visitant, arriving in New South Wales and South Australia in August and September, and returning again in February. As its name implies, it is nocturnal in its habits, and from its frequenting swamps, inlets of the sea, the sedgy banks of rivers, and other secluded spots, it is but seldom seen. On the approach of morning, it retires to the forests, and perches amongst the branches of large trees, where shrouded from the heat of the sun, it sleeps the whole day, and when once discovered is easy captured, as it seldom moves unless shot at or driven from its perch hy some other means, and when forced to quit its perch, it merely flies a short distance, and again alights. Its flight is slow and flapping,...
