A SPEECH FROM MR. BUCHANAN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
A SPEECH FROM MR. BUCHANAN. A few days since (says the Boston Journal, of December 5) the students of Franklin and Marshall College, Pennsylvania, paid Mr. Buchanan a visit for the purpose of congratu lating him upon the result of the election. Mr. Buchanan is President of the Board of Directors of the College, and the good-will of the students was expressed by the visit without reference to their politics. In reply to the con gratulatory address of one of the stu dents, Mr. Buchanan spoke at some length. He thanked the students warmly for their manifestation of good will, and happily referred to the re sponsibility resting upon them to make the best use of the advantages they enjoyed. The speaker warned the students of the dangers of the intoxica ting cap in the following language : Mr. Buchanan said, " lie had been a college boy himself, and none of the best of boys either, being fond of fun like themselves. There were many little eccentricities in the life of a col lege student t...
H.R.H. PRINCE ALBERT AND DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
H.R.H. PRINCE ALBERT AND DUTY. "I CONCEIVE it to be the duty of every educated person to watch and study the time in which he lives, and, as far as in him lies, to add his humble mite of individual exertion to further the accomplishment of what he believes Providence to have ordained. Nobody, however, who has paid any attention to the particular features of our present era, will doubt for a moment that we are living at a period of most wonder ful transition, which tends rapidly to accomplish that great end-to which, indeed, all history points-the realisa tion of THE UNITY OF MANKIND."
Intelligence. PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
IntfKwfittt. PITT STREET. A LECTUHE was delivered on the " Arctic Regions," by Mr. Theodore West, on April 1st. A wet evening, and bad roads kept a good many at home. Those who ventured to come were highly interested; 30 or 40 large water-colour paintings amply illustrated the scenes in those dreary u regions. The terrors, beauties, and sublimities, of a search for a " South west passage," were ably described by the lecturer. Many incidents in the voyages of early navigators in these seas were described. The subject was far from exhausted at the close of the hour set apart for its discussion, and the children present were much gratified at the announcement that another on the same subject would be given on a future occasion. Last Wednesday, addresses on " Temperance" were given. Next Wednesday, April 15th, " Electricity and Electro-Magnetism," by Mr. J. Druery, will form the subject of a lecture. April -22.-Recitations. The meetings of this society are held every Wednesday evening a...

Poetry. THE ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
THE ALLIANCE. WHEN England, beloved birth-place of our sires, With her staunch allies,-courteous, bold, and brave, Sent forth their armies to the Russian shores, The cause of liberty and right to save: Their forces to the myriads of their foes, Like David to Goliath might compare; Yet loud along their ranks the shout aiose, " Our cause is right! We'll death or victory share!" What though within his granite walls immured, With bristling cannon hedg'd on every side. The Russian tyrant, with hie countless horde Of priest-led serfs-their allied arms defied! Our gallant men, with superhuman nerve, Although by fell disease and famine pain'd, Fought bravely, nobly on until they gave The final blow, and glorious victory gain'd. The Czar, who long with iron rod had swayed, And menaced Europe's peace by unjust feud, Was by the heroic allied armies stay'd, His strongholds taken, and his fleet destroyed! The Australian Alliance banner is un furl'd! Like Britons true, we've nail'd it to the mast...
OPINIONS OF BRITISH JUDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
OPINIONS OP BRITISH JUDGES. The celebrated chief justice, Sir Matthew Hale, after twenty years' ex perience on the Bench, declared his belief " that if all the crimes committed in the kingdom were divided into five parts, four out of these five could be clearly traced to the influence of ex cessive drinking." Mr. Justice Erskine, at the Salisbury Assizes, when sentencing a gentleman to six months' hard labour, for a crime committed when under the influence of strong drink, declared his conviction, " that ninety-nine out of every hundred criminal cases, arose from the same cause." Judge Pattison, at the Norwieh . T Assizes, said to the grand jury-" If it were not for this drinking, you and I should have nothing to do !" Judge Alderson, on a recent similar occasion, said-"Drunkenness is the most fertile of all the causes of crime; and if it could be removed, the assizes of the country would be rendered mere nullities.
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
itnrg darker. (Continued from page 100 J " HEIGHO 1 " yawned Henry, as he slowly arose from the table whereon lay his untasted breakfast. " I must turn over a new leaf; I will take no more oyster suppers, they disagree with me. I feel uncommonly shaky this morning." "A glass of soda water with a dash of brandy in it will make you feel all right," said Mr Tucker (which was the name of Henry's preceptor,) as he arose, and opening a cheffonier, produced the article he had recom mended, and ere Henry could offer an objection, the tempting restorative was effervescing in the glass which he eagerly drained, and feeling somewhat resuscitated, he descended to the counting-house and commenced the arduous duties of the day. Never before did Henry feel his duties so irksome ; never did the hours appear to pass so heavily, as, with burning, throbbing temples, inflamed eyes, and tremorous limbs he stood over his desk engaged in preparing some important accounts for transmission to England.

OPINIONS ABOUT TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
OPINIONS ABOUT TEMPERANCE. .' I AM convinced that there is no cause more likely to elevate the people of this country, in every respect-whether ! as regards religion-whether as regards political importance-whether as re gards literary and moral cultivation than the great question of temperance." -Lord John Russell. " Let me record my sense of the value of temperance, and my friend liness to temperance societies."-Dr. Chalmers Scripture Readings. Dr. Chalmers, in a conversation with a friend, only a few days before his death, uttered this sentence: " The temperance cause I regard with the most benignant complacency." " It cannot be denied that abstinence societies have done immense good." Rev. Dr. JVardlaw. " There is one condition among the rules for the Great Exhibition, for which the commissioners cannot be too highly commended, and which should be inscribed in letters of gold over the building. It is, that' No wines, spirits, beer, or intoxicating drinks, can be sold or admitted....
LITTLE WILLIE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
LITTLE WILLIE. LITTLE WILLIE was a gentle fair haired boy, and the child of Christian parents, though born in a heathen land. He had been taught with his earliest lispings to repeat nightly, on retiring to rest, that beautiful child's prayer " Now I lay me down to sleep." When a little more than three years old, God called him away from earth, but the closing scene of his life was beautiful. As the shadows of death gathered round him, he supposed it the darkness of night, and clasping his tiny hands, he commenced " Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep ; If I should die " and here his lips faltered, his pulse ceased, and his spirit returned to God who gave it.-Day.

There were a good number present notwithstanding the unfavourable weather. Several signed the pledge at the conclusion.
Selections. A PUBLICAN'S ESTIMATE OF HIS TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
A PUBLICAN'S ESTIMATE OF HIS TRADE. A PUBLICAN on the South Head Road last week, finding it was getting near closing time, proceeded to launch his drunken customers into the road. One who never got thoroughly under weigh, though kindly assisted a few yards by his worthy host, lay down outside the house, and by his drunken ravings attracted the attention of two police men. One of them, after vainly en deavouring to persuade the man to get up and go away, turned to the publican, and a few observations were made to the following effect: "You have no business to serve liquor to a drunken man." " The man drank what he chose." "You had no business to make the man drunk!" " Well, what is that to you ! Who pays you your wages ?" " Not the publicans !" " You have to thank the public houses for it, so you need'nt hollow!" " Have we ?-I wish to my heart there were no public-houses." "Do you?-then you'd get no pay!" " Well, never mind. Come, get up and go home; don't lay there!" - Walls have ea...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 11 April 1857
fe f)Mts in K fntr-fvooi &lt;?v.nNEY ( Continued from page 107.,) BY T, S. ARTHUR. FKANK, the landlord's son, was behind the bar. He had grown considerably in the year-and from a rather delicate, innocent-looking boy, to a stout, bold lad. His face was rounder, and had a gross, sensual expression, that showed itself particularly about the mouth. The man Green was standing beside the bar talking to him, and I noticed that Frank laughed heartily at some low, half obscene remarks that he was making. In the midst of these, Flora, the sister of Frank, a really beautiful girl, came in to get something from the bar. Green spoke to her familiarly, and Flora answered him with a per ceptibly heightening colour. I glanced toward Frank, half ex pecting to see an indignant flush on his young face. But no-he looked on with a smile ! " Ah ! " thought I, " have the boy's pure impulses so soon died out in this fatal atmosphere ? Can he bear to see those evil eyes he knows they are evil-rest ...
Frederick Hunter. A WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
Jfnkrkli luntfr. A WARNING. IT was autumn. The night was dark and dreary, and a thunder-storm which over-hung the city caused the rain to pour down in torrents. On this same evening, Fred. Hunter sat before a cheerful fire, at his lodgings, in Fort street, Sydney, sheltered from the rain and secured from the storm, though far from being pleased at the thought that the inclemency of the weather should prevent him from resorting to the place, where, with others, he was accustomed to meet night after night, to indulge in the contents of the cup that inebriates and destroys. Fred, would have made a venture out if' it had only rained, but the loud peals of thunder which reverberated through the heavens, connected with the rain, was that which prevented him. He thought for a moment of the power of that awful Being whose voice, he imagined, he could hear in the roaring thunder; and he feared that night to join his associates in evil, lest the thunderbolts of heaven, which weie raging all a...
Poetry. THE LONG AGO. AS ISLE ON THE STREAM OF TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
THE LONG AGO. AS ISLE ON THE STREAM OF TIME. OH! a wonderful stream is tlie river Time, j As it runs through the realm of tears, With a faultless rhythm, and a musical rhyme, And a broader sweep, and a surge sublime, And blends with the ocean of years. How the winters are drifting like flakes of snow, And the summers like buds between ! As the ear in the sheaf, so they come and they go, On the river's breast, with its ebb and its flow, As it glides in the shadow and sheen. There's a magical isle up the river Time, Where the softest of airs are playing ; There's a cloudless sky, and a tropical clime, And a song as sweet as a vesper chime, And the Junes with the roses are straying. j And the name of this isle is the LONG | AGO, And we bury our treasure there ; j There are brows of beauty, and bosoms j of snow; There are heaps of dust, but we loved them so! There are trinkets and tresses of hair. 1 There are fragments of song that nobody sings, And a part of an infant's prayer; There's...
