HURRIED ALONG. Lines prompted on seeing a Woman drunken and bleeding, dragged to the Police Office. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 December 1860

HURRIED ALONG. Lines prompted on seeing a Woman drunken and bleeding, dragged to the Police Office. HURRIED along through the passing throng Of pitiless gazing men ! Shoeless her feet on the flinty street Bleeding and chill'd with the cutting sleet Dragged to the felon's den ! Famine speaks from the sunken cheeks; Misery cries from the hollowing eyes A woman's wreck through the heedless throng, Hurried along-hurried along! Hurred along to the prison strong, To be hidden from dainty eyes In vaults of stone-the startling bone Through famine's cheek, and the bursting groan From ears untuned to sighs ; See her not reel-strengthen your zeal For the saving of souls where Ganges rolls 1 Heed not the victim of want and wrong To prison and mad-house hurried along. Hurried "along with odour strong Of gin-shop, hovel, and den, Where the fire fanned in a Christian land Of lust and crime, by penury's hand. . Seureth the soul$ of men ! See not the tear-furnish the bier Hear not the curse-but furn...

CHRISTMAS CUSTOMS; OR THE RUINED POSTMAN. IN the Tillage of there lived a steady industrious labouring man and his wife, whose cottage was noted for its clean and tidy appearance. The village postman having died, Robert was, by general consent elected as his successor. All went on well until Christmas Da v. when on going his rounds, a, lady him a shilling and a glass of rum, as kin ' Christmas Box.' Unfortunately for Robert he was not a pledged abstainer, and although he would rather have declined the liquor, yet whea the glass was so smilingly held out to him by the hand of a fair lady, it was no easy task to refuse it. At many other places particularly the farm-houses, glasses were handed to Robert, and he was urged to drink them off.-'It will do you good,' said one, 'It will keep the cold out, Robert,' said another. Before the postman had got half through his rounds, he was so tipsy that he Jfell in the ditch, and was carried home in a sad plight. He never looked up afterwards: h...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL SOCIAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 December 1860

Cj|t ^Hsfralian Jj(jme AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL SOCIAL HE FORM. No philanthropic and reflecting mind can he otherwise than painfully affected by the shameful spectacles of vice which are constantly forced upon public observation in this citv. The beastly intemperancer the unblushing lewdness,, and the shameless profanity, which court^observation in our streets, and breed moral pestilence in the community, must occasion distress and commiseration in all rightly constituted minds. They should excite in us feelings of the deepest humiliation as men, and prompt us as- Christians, to the use of the most decisive and effective means of social regeneration. It is hardly necessary to dwell upon the extent to which these evils afflict our population, or the utterly odious aspects which they assume in the broad daylight of heaven. It is impossible to travel any considerable distance anywhere through out the colony, without meeting with many examples, and common decency is constantly outraged ...

My education for the church was finished, tat being unprovided witfe a living, I bad come partly to visit my uncle, and partly to look for a tutorship among the wealthy families in that trying town. For some time my se»rcfc was unsuccessful; nobody seetned to want a tutor, and I wa« thinking of returning home, when a friend of my uttfld.who was also a wine-merchant, called to say, that a nobleman from the country, with wham he had some con nexion, *rt the way of business, had to tewn expressly to engage a tutor for his sons, and wished to see me at the merchant's bouse that evening. Of coarse I obeyed the summons, and found, seated in the best parlour, a tall, grey-haired man, who must have been handsome in his youth, and looked unmistakably German.

CHAPTER XT. file Church looks quite Itself again. IT Is in the middle of the night of that same day. Maude raps violently at Latson's door. He has gone to lie down for an hour though he might as well, for all the sheep he got, have sat on learning repentance in the library fire. . Ethel is worse,' cried Maude,' Nurse think* you should know.' And in a few seconds he is again at bedside. Neither the drugs nor the other stim ulants freely given have had any power ? over that sinking strength : ana ; the reason is that her weakness has beeiv collecting, not fri* hour* (then she might have rallied), but for weeks and months. Broken hearts are not cured by brandy. 4 I'm so thankful,' Ethel slowly, and with many pauses, murmured out, as her husband bent over her. * What for ?' he gasped : and well he might. 4 That-I-was-spared to you till little Hugh was born.' * Not Hugh,' sobbed Latson: yes, he fairly sobbed now. *Well, as you like, love.

CHRISTMAS TIME IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 December 1860

CHRISTMAS TIME IN LONDON. IN strong contrast to our Australian Christmas, we present our readers with the following picture: It is Winter, and the firm of Slumkins and Bubb, .the enterprising firm in the city, as they expressed it in their bills, which they employed two boys and a man, rather shabby, to distribute to every passer-by in that crowded neigh bourhood-Slumkins and Bubb are sell ing off. Dear me, what wonderful people they were, that enterprising firm ! why, to judge from the size of their posting bills,-which were carried on the backs, and fronts of half-a-dozen palsied ola men, who tottered beneath their, loads, and were at the mercy of every passenger, being quite tied up and helpless in their wooden paletots,-and the confusion that appeared to reign in the entire economy of the Establishment^ the windows crowded with a miscellane ous assortment of articles in the way of women's apparel, piled up in a most wonderfully clever style to intimate care lessness, and the doo...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY NO. XXXVII. NODDY TERN. Anous Stolidus. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 December 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HI NO. XXXVII. NODDY T E R N. Atious Stolidm. IF this bird be identical with the Sterna Stolida of the older writers, then the range of the species over the temperate and warmer parts of the ocean must be almost universal; but it will be seen that although the "Noddies of the Northern and Southern hemis pheres are very much alike,"considerable variation exists in the number and coloring of the it eggs, and in the season of lading;-those of the Northern hemisphere being said to lay three, our own only one. These birds form nests of sea-weed, placed on the ground or on top of the I close scrub. Sume nests serve for two or more seasons, as the birds repair them if necessary, building some to the height of two feet. They are very numerous, and breed in prodigious j numbers. The eggs are laid in Novem ber and December. When setting, the birds will not move when approached, out remain on the eggs or young till, taken off by the hand.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. CALIGULA, FOURTH EMPEROR OF ROME. (Reigned from A.D. 38 to A.D. 42.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 December 1860

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. OAL-IGULA, fOUBTH EMPEROR OF ROME, (Reigned from A.D. 38 to A.D. 42,)' THOSE who are the meanest in crouching before the great, are generally the proud est and most arrogant to their own infe riors, when raised to authority. Cali gula, in his youth, had been so cowardly, that even when his own admirable mo ther Agrippina, and bis brother DTUSUS, were murdered by Tiberius, he did not otter one word of compassion or sorrow; and he concealed his own selfishness under a veil of so much mudesty, that a famous orator said of him, " There never was a better slave, or a more detestable master." On the first accession of Caligula to be Emperor, the Romans hoped they had made a happy exchange from a cruel gloomy tyrant to the young son of their favourite hero, Germanicus, and they called Caligula " The Propitious Star." Never were people more sadly unde ceived than when they saw Caligula sud denly break out into a degree of folly which would have been merely ridicu lous,...

MIDNIGHT MASS FOR THE DYING YEAR. YES, the year is growing old, And his eye is pale and bleared ; Death, with frosty hand and cold, Plucks the old man by the beard, Sorely, sorely. The leaves are falling, falling, Solemnly and slow ; . Caw ! Caw !' the rooks are calling, It is a sound of woe, A sound of woe. Through woods and mountain passes, The winds, like anthems roll, They are chaunting funeral masses, Singing, * pray for this poor soul Pray, pray.' And the hooded clouds like friars, Tell their beads in drops of rain, And patt( T their doleful prayers ; But their prayers are all in vain, All in vain ! Theer he stands in foul weather, The foolish, fond Old Year, Crowned with wild flowers, and heather Like weak, despised Lear ! A king !_a king ! Then comes the summer-like day Bids the old man rejoice ! fíis joy ; his lastl O, the old man gray, Loveth that ever- soft voice Gentle and low. » To the crimson woods he saith To the voice gentle and low, Of the soft air, like a daughter'...
