TEMPERANCE ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 December 1860

TEMPERANCE ITEMS. LECTURE.-A second lecture in connec tion with the subject of intemperance, was delivered at the Court-house, on Thursday evening, by Mr. G. Innes, B.A., the subject particularly treated of being 4 the power of example.' Mr. J. Neale occupied the chair. The address (like the former one) was delivered ex tempore, and with a fluency and propri ety of diction which, together with his zeal in the cause he advocates, will make him a most effective lecturer. A case like this deserves more than common notice, where a young man having pass ed successfully his academical career, with means and time in his possession, -with a degree of self-denial and devotion hitherto unwitnessed here, has taken upon himself the task of com bating an evil which he feels is consum ing the very vitals of his country ; a labour in which he is sure to meet with ridicule and opposition, instead of following one of those beaten paths which, in his case, would so soon lead to competence or distinct...

MANAGING WINDOWS FOR AIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 December 1860

MANAGING WINDOWS FOB AIE. -< THHBE is always a draught through key-holes and window crevices ; because the external air is colder than air in the room we occupy, it rushes through the window crevices to supply the deficiency caused by the escape of warm air up the cbimnoy. If you open the lower sash of a window, there is more draft than if you open the upper sash. The reason of this is, because if the lower sash be opened, cold air will rush into the room and cause a draft inward ; but if the upper sash be opened, the heated air of the room will rush out, and of course I there will be less draft inward. A room is best ventilated by opening the upper sash, because the hot vitiated air, which always ascends towards the ceiling, can escape easily. The winds dries damp linen because dry wind, like a sponge, imbibes the particles of vapor from the surface of the linen as fast as they are Í formed. Special attention should be given to the sleeping-rooms ; for pure air and an ab...

Commence earliest in th« I East, where the sun rises, and latest in the West, in the direction of his setting. Sunday at London hegins, in any such, conventional mode of reckoning, always one hour earlier then, for instance, on the east coast of Iceland, on a meridian I fifteen degrees west of London, whereas Sunday begins at Bornholm, in the Baltic, fiiteen degrees east of London, one hour earlier than at London. So also, when it is noon in London, it is six o'clock in the evening at Calcutta, and six in the morning of tbe same day at New Orleans, because these places are a hundred and eighty degrees apart ; and London is intermediate, being ninety degrees distant fr.om both. The result, then, ls, that Monday at Bornholm begins whilst it is still Sunday ...

THE NEW-YEAR'S NIGHT OF AN UNHAPPY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 December 1860

THE NEW-YEAR'S NIGHT OP AN UNHAPPY MAN. -A , 1 AN old man stood on tbe new-year's midnight at the window, and gazed with a look of long despair upwards to the immoveable, ever-blooming heaven, and down upon the still, pure, white earth, on which no one was then so joyless and sleepless as he. For his grave stood near him ; it was covered over only with the snow of age, not with the green of youth ; and he brought nothing with him out of the whole rich life, nothing with him, but errors, sins, and disease, a wasted body, a desolated soul, the breast full of poison, an old age full of remorse. The ? beautiful days of his youth turned round to-day as spectres, and drew him back again to that bright morning on which his father first placed him at the cross road of life, which, on the right hand, leads by the sun-path of virtue into a wide, peaceful land, full of light and of harvests, and full of angels, and which, on the left hand, descends in the mole ways of vice, into a black cavern...

Old Year farewell 1 Peace unto thee-may all the blessings which thou broughtest unto us for ever dwell amongst us ; but may all the evils that did hang around thee still cling to thee, and with him disappear. Thou unknown space new-born amongst us, now turn we to thee. 'Tis thou that shouldst be gazed upon with awe. The dark future-thy shrouded form that human vision may not pierce-how blackly it hovers o'er us I And yet thy form may be of brilliant whiteness, thy aspect kind and genial, thy countenance enwreathed in smiles of sunny lustre, whose glittering hue shall, blot from memory the sadness which perchance has fallen on us in thy predecessor reign. In thy brief life, what multiform events will pass ; to old and young what changes thou wilt bring-to 6ome all joy, to others dreary sorrow. But who shall say which share thou hast for...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. CLAUDIUS, FIFTH EMPEROR OF ROME. (Reigned from A. D. 42 to A. D. 55.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 December 1860

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. CLAUDIUS, FIFTH EMPEROR OF ROME. {Reigned from A. ». 42 to A, r>. 55.) CLAUDIUS, toe uncle of Caligula, bad been always reckoned nearly an idiot, living neglected and despised in the palace; until at the age of fifty, on the day of his nephew's murder, he was accidentally found by some soldiers lurking iu a secret place, where, in fear of his life, he had concealed himself. They instantly placed him on their shoulders, and while he trembled in the expectation 'of being, immediately mas sacred, they proclaimed bim emperor of Borne. Never was there a greater or more un expected change of fortune; and Claud ius began his reign in a-very promising manner. He forbade any. of the Bomana to worship him. He desired that all former offences should be forgotten», and administered justice with mildness. J0Ce restored Judaea to Herod Agrippa, the nephew of Herod Antipas, who beheaded John the Baptist, and he pardoned Caractacus, the brave king of Wales, who had been tak...

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. MT DBAB PATTY,-According to my promise I will proceed to give you an account of the daily routine of the school of my young days. Perhaps its most active agent was a large hell that hung in the hall, the first sound that greeted our half waking ears in the morning, the last that reverberated on them at night was its intolerable clang. Called by it to -rise at six, our hours of study com menced at seven and continued until eight in the evening, interrupted alone by an interval of one hour for breakfast, one for dinner, and two for a third meal and exercise in the evening. Then the i wearied scholars sought .their beds to be I awakened next moruidg for another day of detested study. Nor were these hours assured to us as hours of relaxation. The six or seven pianos did not cease* in them their incessant jingling, and the unfor tunate performer...

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 December 1860

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. -.-, IN the earlier days of his professional career, the present commander was a midshipman on board one of the sloops of war sent to cruise in the Pacific. The duty being merely to give authoritative countenance to the merchant vessels in those seas, much of their time of course was passed in the anchorage of the dif ferent islands, and Maury, having alwa}'« a taste for languages, had employed many an idle hour as coxswain of the go-ashore boat, in mastering the dialects of the natives. So successful had he bedn in this volunteer study that he be came at last the regular interpreter, and was the main channel of communication between the commodore and the petty sovereigns of the islands. The thing he most struggled with in those days was a constitutional bashful ness ; and he was not a little flabber gasted, therefore, when he was sum moned to the quarter de^ck, one bright morning, to interpret between the com mander and a young Owhyhee princess, the favourite d...

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PARTS. CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 December 1860

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PARTS. . CHAPTER X. I THE meal was a silent one, How could it be otherwise-there was so much of the past to thmk of to make it so. Philip Page was astonished at seeing nothing but tea and water on the table ; at last he said, ' I say Brown, have you taken the pledge?' *Yes,' was the answer. .You are surely not t going to be shabby enough to make your visitors do go against their will.' * I keep, nor allow to be kept, nothing but water and tea in the place now.' 'If so, it was foi túnate I brought a supply,' so saying he drew the flask from his pockets : the contents soon drove the cloud from his brow, but ita effects made Mr. Brown look if possible still more miserable. 4 I am an apt pupil you see,' laughingly remarked Philip. At these words Mary without thinking, looked at their host, and Aiice at that moment said something about Minnie, and so recalled to the unhappy man those very *words he had made use of ; with a groan he rose from the t...

CHAPTER XVI. Takes a Leap. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 December 1860

CHAPTER XVI. Takes a Leap. THESE was another little Church away in London, that though not exactly hung in black, was always uncommonly sober in its appearance, and was at least original enough to deserve the Wiltshire pew-opener's encomium of being ' quite itself,' for certainly it warlike nothing else. Little Hugh Church very seldom smiled, and never laughed. At all events, they never saw him laugh who saw him most. He began speaking by calling Hath I his aunt, and Mrs Wofield grandmother. The very names Joyce would have chosen, had she lived to see the little fellow running (if he ever did more than walk) from one to the other. There seemed to be an air of gloom al ways on his pale face-not that sort of air which precocious children generally have, as if they were always in deep thought, and could puzzle their elders, any moment, with some outlandish re mark-but an air of veritable gloom, as if he knew how much he had lost, and as if it seemed quite uncertain, whether he was not ...

THE OLD YEAR. ---o--- It pass'd like the breath of the nightwind away ;   It fled like the mist at the dawn of the day ; It lasted its moment then backwards was hurl'd ; Another ' increase' to the age of the world. It pass'd with its shadows, its smiles, and its tears,   Pass'd as a stream to the Ocean of Years-- Years that were coming were here and are o'er-- The Ages departed, to visit no more. It pass'd-but the bark on its billowy track Leaves an impression on waters aback-- The glow of the ' Come' remains on the sky. Unwilling to leave us,. unwilling to die. H. KENDAL,

THE BOYAL CHARTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 January 1861

THE BOYAL CHARTER. -i I WITHIN the last few days public atten ticm has been drawn to a notice inserted i j io the daily journals at the instance of ] j the Marine Department of the Board of [ Trade, announcing that a quantity of jewellery, watches, and other valuable ! property, recovered from the wreck of the Royal Charter, had come into their possession. The various articles were described in order that they might be claimed by their owners, the necessary application having to be made to the secretary of the Marine Department. At fiwt this notice gave rise to an impres sion that the divers had resumed work on i i the wreck, and that jewellery in question was the result of their labours ; but on inquiry we ascertained that the property alluded to was recovered as far back as November, 1859, that since the divers were withdrawn from the spot in January last the wreck has to all intents been abandoned, Iso far as regards the opera* tions for recovering the treasure.
