ON THE NUMEROUS ORDERS AND SPECIES OF BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
ON THE NUMEROUS ORDERS AND SPECIES OF BIRDS. PRINCE Charles Lucien Bounaparte, in his work on Ornithology, says, Buffon complained of the difficulty of writing a history of birds, because he knew 800 species, and supposed that there might actually exist 1500, or, even 2000, what would be his embarrassment now, when nearly 6000 species are known, and fresh discoveries are daily augmenting the number.
GIVE ME THE ZEAL THAT'S WING'D WITH LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
GIVE ME THE ZEAL THAT'S WING'D WITH LO^YB. GIVE me the zeal that's wing'd with love, That I may all God's will obey; Swift as angelic beings move, Their love t' assay. If call'd to sacrifice e'en life, In suffering or in doing good, These should subdue all inward strife, And point the road. Or, called to leave my native land, In other climes, unfurl the cross Paddington, January, 1881. In answer to God's high command, Count all things dross. If persecuted for His sake, My mind on Him I still would stay, To Him for refuge would I seek, Nor lose my way. With zeal and love my soul should rise, And bow before the throne of God, Forsake all " refuges of lies," And worship God. AUQVXI.
MY WIFE'S PIANO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
MY WIFE'S PIANO. THE deed is accomplished. My wife has got a piano, and now farwell to tran quil mind, farewell content and the even ing papers, and the big cigars, that make ambition virtue, oh, farewell! " And oh, ye mortal engines, whose rude throats the immortal Jove's dread clamous counterfeit!" But stop, I can't bid them farewell, for one of them has just arrived. It came on a dray. Six men carried it into the parlour, and it grunted awfully. It weighs a ton, shines like a mirror, and has carved Cupids climbing up its limbs. And such lungs-whew ! My wife has commenced to practice, and the first time she touched the machine I thought we were in the midst of a thunderstorm, and the light ning had struck the crockery chest. The cat, with a tail erect, took a bee lide for * particular friend upon the back fence, demolishing a six shilling pane of glass. The baby awoke, and the fellow tried his best to beat the instrument, and he could not do it. It beah him. A teacher has been int...

TEMPERANCE ITEMS. JUVENILE TEMPERANCE SOCIETY.-A tea meeting was held, in connection with this society, on the 22nd instant, at the Temperance Hall, Francis-street, Wool*, loomooloo. About fifty children sat down to 4ea. at four o'clock. Having finished their brave assault on the tea and cake» the juvenile champions of temperance adjourned to the open air and amused themselves* while a party of about seventy older friends to the same cause partook of similar refreshments. A pub-, itc meeting was then held, at which Mr. John Neal presided. The Chairman said he had been very zealous in this cause twenty years ago, and he was glad of it. The total abstinence cause had been a great blessing to many in Sydney. He knew by experience that if the cause was, not attended to, people grew c&lt;&lt;ld upon it. His friend, Mr. Lucas, would remem ber they used to get sixty or seventy ta take the pledge one night, and their num bers soon reached 9000. There were six of them who wen...
THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO PAETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
THE BEGINNING AND THE EN A TALE IN TWO PAETS. Weeks and months passed over, bring ing no happiness to the drunkard's home; to their other troubles was added that of his losing his present situation, for of course the station was not managed as it should be. Men were insolent because he was unreasonable. His employer paid them an unexpected visit, found every thing in confusion, and had it not been for the young wife would have dismissed him immediately, for as he himself told Mary, he had a large family to support and educate, to whom he must do his duty, and that if in three months there was not a decided change in her brother they must leave Noona. " How is it," he asked, "when I engaged Mr. Page, he appeared almost the last person to turn out in this way; if it had been during the time he was alone, I should not have been surprised, for a young man without he is either very fond of music or read ing, or what the French call solitaire amusements, 1 am sorry to say too often become...

COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
COLONIAL NEWS. THE Volunteer display on the 19th instant, was creditable to the colony and to those who took part in it. A more magnificent scene it has rarely been onr good fortune to witness; the event certainly deserves to be recorded, and also to be remembered as chief amongst the many gratifying features which the annals of our young colony present. There were present volunteers number ing a grand total of all arms of 1367. His Excellency the Governor-General was on the ground, accompanied by his Aide-de-Camp, Captain Ward, It. E., two or three military officers, and his usual orderlies. His Excellency addressed the volunteers in flattering terms. Many thousand persons were present, and all were highly gratified by the efficiency displayed. On the 18th instant, the Blue Mountain Inn was struck by light ning and much damaged. No lives lost.

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
CHAPTER XII. WtiEN the laughing baby had been dead about three weeks, Maiy received her first letter from Harry, written or at least sent from Rio Janiero, for it was commenced on the day he sailed. Ob ! how different was the picture he drew to tb« reality ! We will read it; H While I f 8rn writing this in my cabin, with my ship's goods around me, viz., one box, which is at present almost perpendicular, a chair, which had once two arms, but, alas! is now armless and useless, for last night it lost a leg, the only seat I possess is on the floor, and really it is the best, for then the lap does for the table; still you will allow it is not pleasant, u this is a very damp ship. Well now for the contrast-you at home, Kate, (for it is evening with you), sitting by the fire, cradle on one side, Philip on the other, you opposite, with Minnie beside you, everything looking, ah ! just as it did the first night I saw it, a per fect little Paradise-it proved so to me Mary dear for there I foun...
ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
ART AND SCIENCE. SCIENTIFIC APPLIA>CES TO MII.ITABY PUUPOSHS.- THE special correspondent of the Times, writing from Brescia, men tions a fact which has not hitherto tran spired concerning the scientific appli ances of electricity to war purposes. It would appear that the remarkable pre cision and unity of the French evolutions were accomplished by a quite novel sort of aide-de-eamp. From each corps, once in position, a horseman rode off to the next position, unrolling on his course » light wire, which no time was lost in adapting to a field apparatus; and the process was repeated along the French lii.e of twelve miles. Hence the move ment of the whole line was known and regulated like clockwork, "from dawn to dewy eve,' on that decisive day. This arrangement had been planned at Pari.®! and a srpply of gutta-percha covered metal forwarded with secrecy and des patch. It has done its work, and the patent may now be disclosed. Portable galvanism beats'portable gas. It was #li ready k...
INFANT-REARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
INFAKTKEAR^NG. Miss Martinp^u, who, like all philoso phip$l ladies, fcas studied the matter thoroughly, says, that " in England alone, babes die annually; and one-third more of that number grow up ©ither idiotje, sigfcjly, or deformed." The reason is evident, as mothers, through inability to nurse their offspring, resort to the administration of baked flour, biscuits* top§-ft8$-.\}Qttoms, or pap. The infant stomach cannot assimilate such crude preparations, fmd frequently rejects them; but still the nurse or mo ther continues them, under (lie hope of soothing the child. Internal inflamma tion takes place-eructations, diarrhoea, $t\d consumption appear-and most fre qi^fltly convulsions are induced which sea) the infant's fate.

LOLA NONTES ON THE COMIC ASPECT OF FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
LOLA NONTES ON THE COMIC ASPECT OF FASHION. MADAME MONTES, Countess of Lands felt, delivered a lecture at the Rotundo, on Friday evening, having for the sub ject "The Comic Aspect of Fashion." The audience was large and attentive, with the exception of an individual who having come apparently with the view of hearing himself exclaim ' hee-aw, hee aw," in base tones, and at inappropriate intervals, was first laughed at and in the cud deservedly hissed by those present. In the opening portion of her address, of which a brief outline is appended, Madame Montes said it was a melancholy reflection that Fashion owed its origin to the sins of mankind ; and it was of somewhat ancient date, too, having com menced about the time that civilised man began to blush at the knowledge of his own partner's nakedness in the Gar den of Eden, a circumstance which led to the wearing of figleaves-(laughter) and it must be confessed that at that period fashion was a somewhat simple and very innocent affai...

BOTANY. CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 January 1861
BOTANY. CHAPTER It. in oraer tnat tne student may be able to distinguish plants, it Is necessary for him first to determine to what class they belong. To do this* he must ascertain whether it is a simple or a compound flower. The compound flowers are sufih as the marigold and sunflower, the dande lion, chinaaster, &c., where several small florets unite in one whole ; the essential character being, that the parts which contain the fertilizing dust or farina, are united into a cylindrical form, each ? floret having a single seed below the re ceptacle. Linnseus, a native of Sweden^ who flourished about a century ago, was the first to facilitate the study of plants, fcy anything deserving the name of a system. He founded his arrangement upon the structure of flowers, and it is therefore Called the natural system. Without system Botany is intricate and perplexing, but by the help of an ar rangement-, a determined student may in a few days acquire an ascendancy over ia.ll difficul...

Answer to Bouts Rimes, initio. 132. How beautifully clear and bright Broke in the morning light, Which by God's providence was sent To teach man-fully intent How to spend a useful life, In the new land where vice was Tife, That every act might be approved. And himseif-beloved. His time and talents not being his own, But Sis, who is the only One, Who suffered the ignominious fate To save the poor, tne rich, and great; And though, to us, mysterious and strange^ Our trust in Sim, will never change, For " Jesus" is the only name . Which means, and is to all the same, A sure foundation on which to lay Our future hope,, and soar away To Sim who ever dwills on high, To record the penitent's sigh; And when called to leave this world behind, We trust in Sim who gave sight to the blind; Assured, when by the trumpet wojse, Our peace again will ne'er be broke.
