AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. * FUNEREAL COCKATOO. Wy la-ABORIGINES. Calyptorhynchw Tunereus. THIS is the largest species of the ;genus to which it belongs its large wings and expansive tail being un equalled by those of any other member of this great family yet discovered. Its native place is New South Wales it has frequently been seen inthe neighbour hood of Sydney; on the Hunter ; and on the Liverpool ranges. The thick bushes on .the mountains and bordering the coast ?lines, the trees of the plains, and the more open country, are equally frequented by it; it is usually met with in small companies of from four to six in number, except during the breeding season - when it is only to be seen in pairs. Its food is much varied ; sometimes seeds of plants, at others grubs and caterpillars. When busily en gaged in scooping off the bark in search of its insect food, it may he approached very closely ; and if one is ?shot, the remainder of the company will fly round for a short distance, an...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

Cjjt Australian gjomt Corapnifln, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL « HOME. THOSE who have had to encounter the struggles of a stormy career look forward to, one desirable haven of rest-a happy Home. Those whose career has been placid and smooth, unruffled by the cares and troubles which crush the peace of their less fortunate brothers, point also to the great spring of their happiness, their peaceful pleasant Home. The home of childhood is associated with our happiest remembrances. Do ?we not each and all look back upon it with feelings of bright and unalloyed pleasure ? That Home must be bitterly devoid of comfort, which has no power to raise such memories. Yet there are such homes; the dwelling places of those whom worldly cares have robbed of the spirit, and the heart too, adorn them with graces, and of those whose selfish natures lead to the wreck of every hope built upon them. An interchange of kindliness and of esteem, by congenial natures, create and bring into existence graces and f...

SMILES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

SMILES. THERK'S a vacant smile, a cold smile, a smile of hate, a satiric smile, an affected smile, a smile of approbation, a friendly smile : but, above all, a smile of love. A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy-the smile that accepts the lover before the words are uttered, and J the smile that lights on the first-born babe, assuring it of a mother's love.

A HERO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

A HERO. John B. Gough, the celebrated tem perance lecturer, who has returned to the United States from a visit to his na tive England related in one of his recent speeches, the following anecdote: 4< John Maynard was well known in the Lake district as a God-fearing honest, intelligent pilot. He was a pilot on a steamer from Detroit to Buffalo one sum- i me.i afternoon. At that time those stea. mers seldom carried boats. Smoke was seen arising from below, and the Captain called out, 4 Simpson, go down below, and see what that smoke is.' Simpson came up, his face as pale as ashes, and said, 4 Captain, the ship is on fire ! then, Fire! fire! five! fire on shipboard!' All hands were called up. Buckets of water were dashed on the fire, but in vain. There were large quantities of ro sin and tar on board; and it was useless to attempt to save the ship. The passen gers rushed forward, and enquired of the pilot, 4 How far are we from Buffalo ?' ' Seven miles.' 4 How long before we...

MARVELLOUS TRANSPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

MARVELLOUS TRANSPOSITION. AN amusing error of the press occurred la the "New York Herald" recen tly, when an article about a sermon by an eminent divine got mixed up with a dog story in this funny way :-" The Rev. James Thompson, rector of St. Andrew's Church, preached to a large concourse of people on Sunday last. This was his last sermon. In a few weeks he will bid farewell to his congregation, as his physicians advise him to cross the At lantic. He exhorted his brethren and sisters, after the expiration of a devout prayer-ran up Timothy-street to John, and down Benefit-street to College. At this stage of the proceedings, a couple of boys seized him, tied a tin kettle to his tail, and he again started. A great erowd collected, and for a time there was a grand scene of noise running, and eonfusion. After some trouble he was shot by a Jersey policeman."

THE FISH RIVER STALACTITE CAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

THE FISH RIVER STALACTITE CAVES. * THE chain of rugged mountains which divides the metropolitan county from the more fertile districts westward,, presents few objects of interest to the traveller to compensate for the tedious and uncom fortable journey across them. Almost the only relief from the monotony of a wretched road and stunted gum trees is in the romantic scenery which now and then opens out, stretching away as far as the eye can reach ovar billowy mountain ranges interspersed with bnge orags aud precipitous ravines, and occa. sionally with green cultivated patches One of the few attractions which the Blue Mountains possess-interesting alike to the scientific, and to sight-seekers gen erally-consists in the curious snbtcrra nean excavations known as the Fish River Stalactite Caves. The beeuty as well as the rareness of these formatious entitle them to a description. The caves In question perforate one of the limestone ridges comprised in the Blue Mountains, and are about fo...

GLEANINGS. A BIVAL TO BRIGHAM YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

GLEANINGS. ? BIVAL TO BRIGHAM YOUNG. A correspondent of a New York jour nal, writing from Nauvoo (Illinois) on the 20th September, gives the following particulars of the new Mormon move 'ment, inaugurated by Joe Smith, son of the founder of that singular sect: "Joseph Smith-perhaps I should say Joseph II,-who on the 6th of April last assumed the leadership of all the Mor mons ( who will submit), is understood to have orginised his church here, and has determined to make this the head of the church, or the holy of holies. When the Mormons came to Nauvoo in 1839, they found in our country about 3000 or 4000 people all told. Now we have a popula tion of over 30,000, who it is believed have nothing to fear from all that will be disposed to settle at Nauvoo under the guidance of Mr. Smith, let their disposi tion be what it may; but from what is understood here of Mr. Smith's notions, nothing could be feared if the whole town, should be composed of Mormons. It is understood that Joe adher...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER XX. Gatherings the First-fruits, and the husbandman eats them. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 31.) CHAPTER XX. Gatherings the First-fruits, and the husband man eats them. LORD BLTNMORE had called his friend a barrel of gunpowder. The explosion might have occurred less opportunely for the schemes of his lorrtship, than it did that day, On reaching " The Towers." Claude found that his father had been several times inquiring for him and in no very placid or promising language, " What's the matter ?'' said old Ralph, to the lad, as he met him in the hall, <c goodness only knows : but you must make haste to the colonel, and put his mind qniet, or we're in for another of our favourite nights,' " Psha!" said the youth, " let him wait. - Am 1 in livery ?" And he took hold of his jacket, and turned fiercely on the old man. Then, made his way, purposely sauntering, to bis father's room. "Well, you sir'."cried the colonel' " You might wait till you've buried your father, I should have thought, before you left him all day l...

TEJ&PEjR ANCE ITEMS. INTEMPEBANCK, The following excellent letter we clip from the Wagga Wagga Express» and Regent it to our readers as worthy of 0fisideration, - {To the Editor of the Express.) SIR,-The crying evil of the day and . country, that curse that overhangs this our adopted land* blighting the energies pf our people, shortening the brief span of life allowed to us, rendering the youth prematurely old, and striking down the old into an unhonoured grave, degrading alike man and woman to a level with the brute creation, is-alcoholic drink. 0 that a man Should put into his mouth a thief To steal away his brains.

THE BEGINNING AND THE END. A TALE IN TWO FARTS. (Concluded from page 37.) CHAPTER XIV. ON the third evening after the attack, Kate asked Mary if Harry had written to ! her. " No, dearest, but you know he said, not to expect a letter after his arrival in England, as he would leave imwedi rately." " I have been thinking, dear sister," said Kate, "how good God is, every thing he ordains is for the best; when we are well and happy things puzzle us, but now when I look back, bow plainly do I see his hand in everything. You will not grieve for me. I shall be happy You will take my little Minnie. I know Harry will be a husband to you and a father to her. My poor Philip (at this name her lip trembled), will one day come to himself and me. I do not wish to live, for I feel the last page of my life is written. If, dear Mary, Philip should never see me again, tell him I loved and prayed for him always." Wearied with talking she now fell asleep, leaving Alice by her. Mary left the roorn to see ...

THE C M SABS. NERO, -Continued. THE wise and prudent Seneoa still had some Influence over his pupil, who was now only seventeen years of age; and he persuaded Nerq to form plans of govern ment which were full of mercy and jus tice, so that he appeared to all men as one of the most humane and liberal prin ces who had ever yet reigned at Rome. When it was necessary for. Nero 'to use his pen in signing an order for the exe>> cution of criminals, he sometimes ex claimed, with an appearance of great regret, " Oh that I had never learned tt> write !" And on one occasion, the senate having praised him for acting in a man ner which pleased them, he answered, that they should not give him their thanks tilj he deserved better to receive such an honour, Agrippina was enraged to find that no share in the government of Rome was given to her ; and though at this time Nero treated her well, she could not be satisfied without ruling him entirely, and committing all the cruelties she wished...

EASTERN TORTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

EASTERN TORTURE. TORTURE is occasionally resorted to for the purpose of extracting money from those who are reluctant to disgorge their dishonest gains, and for'the purpose also extracting confessions in criminal cases. One method is to place the party astride on a charpoy ; his feet are then 'led below with a rope as tightly as pos sible, thereby causing intense pain ; but «this be insufficient to produce confes Mon, water is thrown upon the ropes, *hich causes them to shrink to such a j degree that they cut the unfortunat e suf ferer to the bone, causing so much agony, that the poor wretch at once gives up his money, or confesses to what is required of him; occasionally, it is supposed, confessing to a crime ho never committed, through sheer physi cal inability to support the agony in flicted. Another mode of torture is placing an iron ramrod, burning hot, be tween a man's thighs while he is hung by his thumbs from a beam. Monstrous as this appears, it is exactly what was practise...

FAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

FAT MEN. THERE is something cordial about a fat man. Everybody likes him and he likes everybody, lour Ishmaelites are, in truth, a bareboned race; a lank tribe they are, skeleton and bile. Food does a. fat man good; it clings to him; it fructifies him; he swells nobly out: and fills a generous space of life. He is a living, walking minister of gratitude to the earth, and the fulness thereof; an incarnate testimony against the vanities of the earth : a radiant manifestation of the wisdom of good humour. A fat man, therefore, almost in virtue of being a fat man, is per se. a popular man, and com monly he deserves his popularity. In a crowded vehicle, the fattest man will ever be ready to make room ; indeed he seems to be half sorry for his size, lest it he in the way of others; but others would not have him less than he is, for his humanity is usually commensurate with his bulk. A fat man has abund ance of rich juices. The hinges of his system are well oiled ; the springs of his being...

NONE BUT THE BBAVE DBSBBYE THE PAIR. A young, beautiful and wealthy lady . widow of a French Officer, who lost his ; life at the assault of the Malakoff, has chosen a second husband after a some what eccentric fashion, arising either , from a Martial disposition, or the diifi« < culty of a selection between no less than ten sighing aspirants for her hand. Madame C , invited the ten gentle men to breakfast, at lier country villa, and having thus united her suitors, in formed them that she would unite herself to the one who would hold in his hand a watch for her to fire at and break with a pistol, at twenty paces. Nine of the party didn't'care to run the risk exacted by this female Travis; hut the tenth, a young merchant, courageously deter mined to fulfil the condition* imposed.

PAST MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

PAST MEN. THE vicious die early. They fall like shadows, or tumble like wrecks and ruins into the grave-often while quite young-almost always before forty. The wicked " liveth but half his days." The world at once ratifies the truth and assigns the reason, by describing the dissolute as " fast men/' that is, they live fast, they spend their twelve hourft in six, getting through the whole before the meridian, and dropping out of sight and into darkness while others are in the glow and glory of life-" Their sun is down while it is yet day." And they might have helped it. Many a one dies long before he need. Your men of genius, like Burns and Byron, to whom, when dissipated and profligate, thirty seven is so fatal; and your obscure and nameless " wandering stars," who waste - their youth in libertine indulgence-they cannot live long. They must die early. They put on the steam till they blow up' / the boiler. They run at such a rate that the fire goes out for want of fuel. The machinery...

CHAPTER XXI. The Up-Trains. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

CHAPTER XXI. The Up-Traina. ALL this while the up-train was going along without accident, and with few stoppages, though, perhaps, not at ex press speed : for there were third-class carriages attached, and they can afford only a moderate velocity. Hugh is the shoeblaek, and boy of all work at " The Swan." The bit of rusty erape round his cap is getttng very rusty, but nothing will in duct him to put it off; so Buth takes him by surprise one morning, and there is a new band for his grandfather and grandmother, which he wore, and then renewed, for a long time. He said that it kept him right, poor boy, to look at the crape sometimes when he was at work; for it reminded him of Arland churchyard, and of the only grave, and the only coffin, he had ever seen at present. Slike, Hugh's master, was not a bad specimen of his order-we mean he was not a fair one, for he was above the average, viery far, of your licensed vic tuallers. He had been a gentleman's butler, but, coveting independence, ...
