THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER XI. Number Nineteen. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 November 1860
THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 415) CHAPTER XI. Number Nineteen. BOTH WGFIELD would have been the ?err last person in the world to draw the distinction that was drawn by the charitable charwoman, between ' poor folks' and ' millionary' people. ' It certainly was not any absurd idea that dressmaking raised her above her neighbours, that first led her to take to it. She knew better. She knew that, in the books of etiquette, which you cannot buy at the shop3. but which are learned by heart, in kitchens and in sculleries, and by hall-porters in their chairs (like sedans with the fronts off, any housemaid, second, third, or fourth, is ranked above the dressmaker, i. e., the dressmaker who ' goes out.' Nay, Ruth, knew very well how her excellent neigh bour herself would have spoken, not only of, but to, a dressmaker, if she had been scrubbing or washing, where Ruth was gone for a day's sewing. We cannot explain it-we only know it is so, that a duster and a long broom...
RECOLLECTIONS OF A VISIT TO MELBOURNE. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 November 1860
RECOLLECTIONS OF A VISIT TO MELBOURNE, hO. I. 'MB. DUDDLE, sir?' 'No, sir; no such gentleman on board, sir,' said one of the stewards of the Sternfirst, steamship, (which was lying at the Sandridge pier,) in reply to the enquiry of m^ valued friend, Captain Splicem, about 6 o'clock one fine morning, a few weeks ago. 4 Here's Joey Duddle,' shouted I, open ing my eyes, and hastily scrambling,out of my berth, having overheard the col loquy, and the retreating footsteps of my disappointed friend up the companion stairs. ' Here's Mr. Duddle : hoy! stew ard, stop the gentleman,' I shouted, as I excitedly selected my apparel from the assortment on the cabin floor, which was mutually owned by my two slumbering cabin partners and myself, and having hastily enveloped myself in my gar ments, emerged from the state-room (an enclosure containing about as many cubic feet as an omnibusj, glad enough to breathe the fresh air, and rest my body. You may safely trust a sailor in any emergency ; he is ...
MISS JESSIE'S SCHOOLDAYS, AND WHAT CAME OF THEM. Being the substance of several Letters now in the possession of, and revised by, PATTY PARSLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 November 1860
MISS JESSIE'S SCHOOLDAYS, AND WHAT CAME OF THEM. Being the substance of several Letters now in the possession of, and revised by, PATTY PARSLEY. MY DEAR PATTY,— Your remarks in the letter which I last received from you, on the present unnatural condition of femin- ine education, very much interested me; and, as, while you asked my opinion on the subject, you also broadly hinted your curiosity as to the events of my past life, I shall be very happy, by giving you an insight into at least the beginning of the ' few and evil' days which I have witness ed, to leave you to conclude what must be the only feeling with which I can regard the system of education which had upon them a lasting influence. And, my dear Patty, you need not fear that because I am now a lonely old woman, I shall, therefore, become either prosy or lachrymose over the sorrows and evils of my youth. The fact is, my clear, that I am by no means so stricken in years as you may suppose, in your ignorance of the masterly ...
The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL WORD FOR THE CHINESE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
Cjjt Australian Dornt dompnion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL WORD FOR THE CHINESE. A GREAT outcry is constantly being raised amongst us against the Chinese, Their extensive immigration is looked upon as an immense evil to the countiy, and the interests of European oolonists are supposed to be in great danger. Let us calmly consider the question, and we think it will be apparent that much of the anticipated evils are purely imaginary, and the remainder capable of remedy by ourselves. Although some years have elapsed since first the Chinese arrived, there has been but little of the discord which their presence here was expected to produce. What outbreaks have occurred, may be-in almost every instance-traced to their European neighbours for the commencement. Since coming amongst us, they have shewn an example of industry and sobriety well worthy the imitation of their companions. They possess very little money on arriving, but, by their prudence and perseverance, they soon acquire sufficie...
THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PARTS. CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO TARTS. CHAPTER VIII. SLOWLY and sadly Harry carried his lifeless burden towards the house, while the weeping Mary removed the tangled tresses from the dead girl's face. ' A message must be at once sent to her father,' said Harry : but as he spoke, he saw that Mi. Brown had returned. They reached the house together, and Harry paused. Terrible to relate, the dead girl's father was evidently suffering from drink; his face was flushed, his step uncertain. Observing that it was his daughter whom Harry was carrying, he bounded forward and in less time than it takes to write, he stood beside his child. 'Give her tome-is this your doing?' he asked of Harry in a hoarse whisper. 'Rather yours,' was the involuntary reply, for Harry was horrified at seeing him in such a state. He evidently did not think her dead, for h.e said, ' why don't you take her in?' then followed Harry as he carried his flead cousin into her room. When he saw no means used for her...

MISS JESSIE'S SCHOOLDAYS, AND WHAT CAME OF THEM. Being the substance of several Letters now in the possession of, and revised by, PATTY PARSLEY. MY DEAR PATTY, - That school to ] which I was sent by my kind relations, was one of, what my aunt called, a 'novel and superior kind of manage ment.' That is, it was about the first that banished from its programme the ' good old arts of hemming and stitching J .substituting in their place the fabrication of bunches of unnaturally coloured and .shaped flowers. In short, my school was too fashionable to teach its pupils ' how to cut out and make their own apparel. Not one of all the young ladies ever hemmed her own pocket handkerchiefs. We were supposed on the Saturday half-holiday to mend our o own clothes, but we did not do it, and so long as the clothes were kept in repair, no one enquired about them. As I spent the whole of my life from my seventh to my eighteenth year in this school you may guess, my dear Patty, how great a slave to the...
A STORY IN A STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
A STORY IN A STORY. Some years ago,-the exact date is of no import, for it is likely no legal claims, or disputes will arise to need you or I to swear to tbe ,day and hour-some years ago having discharged very credit ably the emigrants who had come out under my charge, 1 presented my letters, 110 solitary letter of introduction to a brother medicus; and having an open ing in the rising township of for one of my profession, packed up my mov ables and started per coach. Really arrived at 1 looked around me, and rubbed my eyes ; where was the town ? True I saw a low verandah cottage, ?with a signboard proclaiming entertain ment for man and horse; a brick dull building of the prison sort; a few huts ; a store, and a church: near to which stood $ rather more pretentious hut in size: but to balance this advantage its fcark roof was evidently leeky; its uri glazed windows scantily sheltered by cude shutters, and its grey slabs shrink ing apart, and stuffed with straw and mud. The word town...
LOUIS NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
LOUIS NAPOLEON. A PARIS writer thus describes Louis Napoleon on one of the spacious avenues of that imperial city :-* Driving a pair of splendid bays, attached to a box-waggon, with thfc reins in his own hands, and handling them as though he was accustomed to it, without any out riders, equeries, or guards, the Emperor Napoleon came along the avenue. He was dressed with a black over coat, and a hat which was of a fashion of its own. The points of his moustache looked particularly sharp, and his ' imperial' as though it had just come from thejbarber's-. It required a steady hand and a quick eye to guide those dashing horses through the immense throng of vehicles of every description which filled the avenue, particularly $s the driver, while keeping one eye on the steeds?, was obliged with the other to acknowledge the salutations which he received on everjT side, and he kept up a continual bowing. The Emperor gives as yet no sigus of a;ge, (he will be 52 on the 20th of April next), bu...
INSECTS AND THEIR HUMAN PREY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
INSECTS AND THEIR HUMAN PREY. IN Africa thir5 is a worm, called the Guinea worm, which buries itself in the flesh of man. It is loncr slender, and round I\ke a fiddle string; its length varies from six inches to twelve feet. The British soldiers stationed at Bombay were freauentlv attacked by it; out of 360 men, 199 were attacked. When it introduces itself into the flesh, it ig a very minute parasite, not more than l-60th part of ail inch in length, and exists on low, muddy shores. This little intruder now grows immensely, ®nd becomes the parent of numerous off Spring. It produces itching and crawl ing sensation, and finally a boil forms, and when it breaks, the head of the animal protrudes, which is then caught and gently extracted, care being taken not to break it, otherwise, serious and even fatal effects are apt to follow. The extraction is very tedious work. The natives cut the skin when they are near the surface, and then extract them. Medical writers describe no less than twe...
THE CAESARS. TIBERIUS, THIRD EMPEROR OF ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
THE CJESARS. TIBERIUS, THIRD EMPEROR OF ROME. The emperors of Some seemed born to show how wicked the heart of man is, and certainly their reigns form one of the blackest periods in the world's his tory. Tiberius, surrounded by wealth, power, and magnificence, was little better than a wild beast, or perhaps worse ; and all his grandeur could not make him really great or really happy. At this very time, in the reign of Ti berius, when the guilt of men seemed at its worst, Jesus Christ died to save sin ners. He utterly despised the honours and luxuries of this world : but, without riches, or titles, or equipages, he was truly great, not only that he was Divine, but in his -perfect holiness and goodness; so that even Tiberius, when he received from Pilate an account of Christ's mira cles, death, and resurrection, is said to have been so impressed with the whole futatiw, that He related it to all the' lenate, desiring that Jesus Christ might in future be considered by the1 Romans as I g...
ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
ART AND SCIENCE. ROVEL PUMPING APPARATUS.-The . S. A. Register' remarks : - 4 We ihspected on Friday, at tbe back of the Cremorne Hotel, an ingenious aDnlication of flip windmill to the purpose of pumpfnif water from a well, which has been con tiived by Messrs. Palmer and Co., of Unely, with a view to the adaption for watering stock or irrigating land. The idea so far is not a new one, as the plan was, we believe, first tried in America, whence it was imported to the diggings in Victoria for the pumping out of claims. The chief merit of Messrs. Palmer and Co's apparatus seems to consist in its self adjusting power, by which not only are the sails always turned to the wind, but are made to spjead out or feather them- ' selves according to the blast, by means of a weight attached to a chord proceed ing from the sails and passing over pulleys. The sails work with greater ease than ordinary, and while a very gentle breeze is sufficient to turn them round and so work the pump, the self a...
NEEDLEWORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
NEEDLEWORK. THE sewing of English embroidery has now become so general, that any instruc tions about it seem unnecessary. The engraving is a copy of the newest design received from England by the last mail, and can be had, stamped on a large scale, snitable for petticoats, frocks, sleeves, or insertion, at Mrs. Reading's, 19, Market street East. The pattern^ can be stamped in ladies' own material, if required.
THE LOVED ONES AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
THE LOVED ONES AT HOME. Time flies and the hour draws nearer, When the last sad good bye must be spoken, By loved ones than ever now dearer; In voices all trembling and broken, One long sad embrace, and you've parted, The moment long dreaded has come, And you take now almost broken hearted, One last look at the loved ones at home. As gaily your ship skims the ocean, You are silently pacing her deck, Stilling your sad spirits commotion, Vainly trying its anguish to check; The silver moon softly is beaming, Sportively glancing o'er the light foam, And you gaze, but your spirit is dreaming, Of the loved ones now sleeping at home. And when Albion's cliffs are receding, And will soon disappear frotn your view, Then think that fond hearts may be pleading, At the footstool of mercy for you ; Then fervently lift up your spirit, Be it darkly o'ershadow'd with gloom, And plead through the Saviour's great merit, For yourself and the loved ones at home.
THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER XII. Fulfils a Prophecy. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 535) CHAPTER XII. Fulfils a Prophecy. THERE was not one prayer too many offered, in that low London room, for the comfort and the happiness of the Lady Ethel. | Ye who read, from day to day, the | newspaper stories of ruffians brought I before magistrates, for half-murdering, or quite murdering, the wretched crea tures whom the law calls their wires,~ beware how ye think, that all the woe of married life festers and bleeds in dark cellars, or in garrets that let in the rain ! Pokers and pewter-pots are not the only symbols of human faithfulness to the TOW, ' for better for worse, to love and to cherish,' and a man may knock down a woman in another sense besides that which obtains for him the familiar six mouths (which ought to be six years) at the oakum picking. Ethel had hardly ceased to think herself a bride, when she found all this out. And yet, we are Dot going to say that Latson loved her less than he would have loved another...
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY NO. XXXVI. AUSTRALIAN PELICAN. Pelecanus Conspicillatus. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL NO. XXXVI. AUSTRALIAN PELICAN. Pelecanus Conspicillatus. THIS may be regarded as one of the very finest of the members of the genus Pelecanus; in size it fully equals its European prototypes, and although devoid of crest plumes, this ornament is fully compensated for by the varied markings of the face and mandibles. It is abundant on all the rivers and inlets of the sea, both here and in Tas mania; although as colonisation ad vances, it retreats into the wilds. It was formerly very abundant on the Hunter, as well as in Spencer's Gulf, and now may be found in all the waters of the interior, such as she Namoi, Mokai, &c.; and on all lagoons of suf ficient magnitude, to afford it a supply of food, consisting principally of fish. The nest is a large structure of sticks and grassy herbage, placed just above high watermark. The eggs are gener ally two in number, of a dirty yellowish white, three and three-quarters of an inch long by two and three-eighths "Wirta ...
