CHAPTER XIII. Fills the Cup to the Brim. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860

CHAPTER XIII. Fills the Cup to the Brim. ETHEL set on in that room for two hours more, all alone. She went over the papers again and again; and had that long band of black hair been curted by some cunning dresser, it would hardly have looked more wavy than it was, after its many twinings around the daughter's fingers as she sat and mused, when the papers were again put away. Suddenly the wife started up. She remembered she had heard no> laughter for a long while. She listened, and she heard not a single sound. Half-past three struck by the chimney piece clock as she rung the bell-gentljv for she felt afraid at the silence. When the servant appeared, Ethel in quired whether the colonel was still in the billiard-room. The man could hardly conceal his astonishment as he answered .No, my lady. The colonel retired about two o'clock.' ' To his room ?' asked Ethel, choking, as the man himself could plainly see, and mentioned five minutes afterwards. . Yes, my lady.' .That will do,' said...

THE TOMATO. THIS plant belongs to that numerous fmily,. the Solinacious order, and is closely allied to the potato. The tornato-fi uit is extensively used on the Continent of Europe, and is pre pared in a variety of ways for the table.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO SIGNING THE PLEDGE! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 December 1860

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO SIGNING THE PLEDGE! ' THANK yon for the compliment cousin Mim,' said John Barker ; 'you imply that I place myself in such a position 4s to make it necessary for me to sign -the pledge.' 'Are you a Christian John?' said Emma. * I trust so dear Emma-do you doubt it,-or why ask such a question?' * Oh no ! I do not indeed doubt it, bat we are told in scripture to take nothing whereby our brother is offended or made weak, and Christ said, Ye are my children if ye do whatsoever I command you,' and although the former was spoken by one of bis apostles, that apostle speaks as be was moved by his spirit.' 4 But look Emma, have you seen ma the worse for drink ? No! I despise tbe thin who by indulging too freely places fcimself beneath the level the brute. I 8e]dom, if ever, take a drop of any thing, so there is no necessity for my figning the pledge. Besides, consci eatioasly I think I can do far more good by showing others how 1 can keep from U without signing.' 'Just so...

ME. STUART'S DISCOVERIES. AT length * the mystery of the interior,' as it has so long been designated is solved Enough is known to warrant us in making the assertion that the centre of this long impervious continent is neither a shallow sea, nor a sterile desert. It is on the contrary, an ele vated region, on the whole fertile, and "by no means destitute of water. The Ministry, who are in possession of Mr. Stuart's secret, are pledged not to reveal it just at present; but they revealed enough during the course of the bebate yesterday in the Assembly to warrant ns in so describing the country over which Mr. Stuart, Mr. Keswick, and Mr. Head have passed and repassed. And this inference is corroborated by the ad missions of three adventurous com paniona in this arduous and most sue GRjsfuf enterprise-all of whom aro now fn Adelaide. From the statements made by the Government, we learn that Mr. Stuart reached a point at least 13000 miles from Adelaide in a straight line, and within 300 ...

GOOD POINTS IN HORSES. PAST II. HOW TO EXAMINE A HORSE FOR SOUNDNESS. Having marked his position, the state of his eyes, and nostrils, we proceed to examine his mouth for wounds, and forage. Wounds are sometimes made in the tongue by brutal men with the bitt, that renders the animal very awkward ever afterwards ; sometimes the tongue is nearly cut through, and sometimes a piece is taken off altogether, this hinders the animal from masticating bis food, so much so, that the proper nourishment of that taken is hardly ever extracted, as it is never properly mixed with salver nor properly masticated. Age This is an interesting part, in a country such as this, where every two horses out of three are said to be six years old. Before you can expect to become an adept in this branch, you prost submit to a great deal of practice; it is by the front teeth that the age of the horse is best known; they are termed the nippers, and are of two kinds -horse and foal-or as they are techni cally call...

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALB IN TWO PABT9. CHAPTER IX. we must now return to Noon a; how fared the inmates there? No change in Philip Page. Shearing was now over, but he did not return to the way of hsppiness. For a long time Kate remembered her resolution, but at last her patience wore out, and she resumed her scolding-who would blame her ? Not Mary, though she thought nothing would induce her to reproach Harry as Kate did her husband. About two months had passed since Annie's death,; when one morning Philip proposed their going to spend the day at Bevau, as the! children were at home. Harry of course had told Mary how changed his uncle was, so she said, 4 Very well I will go,' but Kate declined, saying, *You Have disgraced yourself and me so often, I will never go out again with you, so don't ask me.' Mary's principal induce ment was the hope that during their long ride she might remonstrate with Philip. 'He will be sober if we start »ow,' she thought, 'and he cannot get anyt...

THE GREAT EASTERN. THE New York Herald makes a rough calculation of the financial result of the Great Eastern's trip to New York: ' Let us see now bow the profit and loss account of the voyage stands. The ship left Southampton cm the 15th of June, and she will leave this country on the 16th of August, which, allowing ten days for her return trip, would make the period of the whole voyage just seventy days. Her expenses average about 1200 dollars a day, or probably not quite so much, at which rate the expense of the voyage would be 84000 dollars. ' She will have received before the voyag® is completed, about the following sums from various sources :-Frofli 150.000 visitors in New York, 75,000 dollars*' from her trip to Cape May, including tickets and profits from the restaur*0^ l&OOO' dollars: from visitors at ftfiat point, 5000 dollars: from her visit to Annapolis, 15,000 in coal; from fisitors at Annapolis, Baltimore, Nor folk, &c. 15,000 dollars: her freight home t...
