The First Glass. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
The First Glass. THERE, was. a young man. in college, one of the brightest, who was greatly be loved for his personal attractions, frank.' ness, good nature, and generosity. But he was occasionally found flushed with, wine, and then he was turbulent and ungovernable.. At length, in one of* these fits of excitement, he committed! a misdemeanor for which he was exr pelled from college-. Soon after this¿ he became very dissipated, abandoned J his studies, and finally beçame a sot People wondered how such a lovely ^roung man could fall into such ruinous courses. A young lady, conversing about him, said she remembered that, when he was a little boy, just beginning to study Latin, she saw his mother bring him a piece of cake and a glass of wine for a lunch. She then thought that perhaps he would become a drunkard, and so it turned out. Beware of the first class.
PITT-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
PITT-STREET. ~ I A temperance Meeting was held, March 5, Mr. Davis, Mr. G\ Bennet, and Mr. Lee, delivered short addresses j a spirit of lively interest seemed to pervade the meeting. The Temperance Melodies were sung with enthusiasm ; eleven added their names to thc roll, and upwards of twenty applied for papers to obtain the consent of their friends to join next meeting. Last Wednesday, a lecture on Tele graphs was given by Mr. j. J. Rutter. The manner in which the lecturer treated the subject was exceedingly simple and interesting. A curious little pocket battery, consisting of a number of little gutta percha cups stood on the table, the strength of which the child ren had an opportunity of testing ; a short piece cut from the same cable that has since been laid down from England* i$ the continent was handed round among them, the section of which showed the position of the wires, and their coverings of hemp and gutta percha, and over these of strong iron wire. Thc lecturer referre...
Mamma's Wish. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
Mamma's Wish, WE drove up to tue station-house where my Aunt Miriam expected to meet a friend in thc six o'clock train from, B. While standing on the platform, my attention was attracted by a little child *of some five years of age, and its mother, a lady of quiet independence of manner, whom, when she spoke, I recognized as a foreigner. The child's dress was rather that of a boy, while its sweet voice, fair face, and delicate limbs were decidedly feminine. A shower of sunny curls dropped lightly to his waist, shad ing a face of wax like delicacy, and con trasting singularly with a pair of large dark eyes. There was in his manner a fine childish spiritedness, and a grace ful politenesss, which quite charmed me. My eyes followed him as he passed and repassed by the side of his mother, who was .walking rapidly up and down the less*throngecl side of the station house. Presently they stopped near tho door of the ladies' saloon where I stood. í(Oh, Mamma!" I started; there was the,.same,...
The Tiger's Leap. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
The Tiger's Leap. À SAILOR, named Campbell, on board a Guineaman, (slave ship,) on the river Congo, West Africa, bathed in that river while in a state of intoxication. When he had swam some distance from the ship, some of the sailors on board dis covered an alligator making tow ards him ; his cscápe appeared impossible. Two shots were fired at the frightful monster, both of which missed him. The report of the piece, and the noise on board the vessel, warned Campbell of his perilous condition, and, turning, he saw his enemy advancing with open jaws ; this impelled him to use his utmost strength and skill in making towards the shore ; on ap proaching some canes and shrubs which covered the bank, closely pursued by the alligator, a ferocious tiger sprang towards him at the very instant the jaws of the first enemy were extended to seize him. At this awful moment, strange to say, Campbell was preserved, for the too eager tiger, by overleaping him, encoun tered the gripe of the amphibious...

The Yellow Pocket. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
The Yellow Pocket. JACK SIMPKIN, a sailor, who worked ia the dockyards at Portsmouth, was much given to drinking. Tlfe na tural consequence was, that he and his wife and children were always ill clad and ill-fed, and their house was a damp, dismal place, with scarcely any furniture. As Jack and some drunken companions were one evening passing aloug the street, be chanced to tumble into a place where a temperance society was holding one of its meetings. A mild respectable-looking man was deli vering a [speech about the evils of in temperance, and the comparatively happy life which was led by those who never drank any intoxicating liquors. The sailor, though half tipsy, had enough of sense to understand and bo convinced by what was said ; and, at the end of the lecture he requested tho speaker to put down his name as a mem ber of the society. Honest Jack ad hered to this resolution, notwithstand ing thc jeers of his coin/panions; he ceased to go to taverns; he spent all his earnings o...

Why do they die? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
Why do they die? The young and the beautiful, why db they die, With the flower on their cheek and the beam in their eye. ! Fresh and unfaded,, and life overflowing, Hope, love, and strength, in the warm bo^ som glowing ! Why is the aged and weary one left, Like the old oak of winter, benumbed and bereft ! The infantine flowers round' his féet that were; playing, Lie smitten and dead, while he lives,, tbough» deoaying;. Lives on to languish, to struggle, forsaken, While they, full of beauty and brightness, were taken."' " Murmer not, mortal, nor dare to refuse The loveliest lilies thy father may choose ; Say, would'st thou offer Him only tha ! dying j All that is budding in beauty dfenymg-? ! Must He not gather the fr«sh and the? fair Only the fading and withering wear? Nay, let Him choose His own favorite blos som : Grudge not the lily He takes to His bosom." ±¿au*á» TATHAM.. i -
GOLD DUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
GÖLt) DUST. Young" people should reverence their parents when at home, and attend to the instructions of their teachers when at school. Custom hi youth, becomes natural in old age. Our only safety is in serving God. Thc shortest life is long enough if it lead to a better, and the longest life is too short if it do not. The sweetest révengé ia to do good to our enemies. . s , i It is often better, to pray for thosô who are mistaken, than to dispute with them. Force may subdue, but love gains. ABSTINENCE strengthens the memory, clears the apprehension, and gives réason i¿s full »scope. A cheerful countenance, is generally the index of a good heart. A child is thé bèginning of what he will be ; ari old man, the remains of what he has been. # . Water Drinkers^ are in general longer livers, and less subject to decay of the faculties, than those who use other liquids, i A divided family can no more stand than I a divided commonwealth.
A Rap on Somebody's Knuckles. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
A Rap on Somebody's Knuckles. IT is very strange my teacher never says a kind word to me. I am quite sure I say my lessons well. I have not had an error since I came six months ¡ ago. I have aot beeu delinquent or tardy. I have never broken a rule. Now, there's Harry Gray, that fat boy yonder with dull eyes and frilled shirt dollar, who nçver can say his lessons without some fellow prompts him. He comes in half-an-hour after school be gins, and goes home an hour before it is done, and eats peanuts all the time he stays ; he has all the medals, and the master is always patting him on the head and smiling at him, and asking him "If the room is warm enough/' and all that ; I don't see through it. My dear, honest, conscientious, unso phisticated* little Moses. If you only knew what à rich man Harry Gray's father was-^-what nice old wine he keeps in his cellar ; how easy his car riage cushions are ; what nice nec tarines and grapes ripen in his hothouse; and how much the master is comfor...
NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
NEW SOUTH WALES. On Friday evening, February 29, the Rev. Dr. Fullerton delivered a lecture OD the virtue of " Self-Denial/' in Hay street Chapel. Owing to the unfavor able state of the weather, the persons present at the meeting were few in number, and chiefly adults. The rev. gentleman commenced by expressing his pleasure at having an opportunity of lecturing on the duty of Self-Denial in connection with the temperance movements. He stated that the virtue of Self-Denial was one which Was in culcated by the Saddueees, and other ancient Jewish sects; and.was also en joyed J^y both Greek and Roman philo sophers. It was a duty also commanded by our Lord Tesus Christ, but by him, on principles very different from those of the Heathen and Jewish teachers. Man was created a rational beiqg, capa ble of understanding the law of God, and is bound by that law to deny him self and to abstain from evil. Those who break the law; and indulge in intoxicating drinks, deprave themselves below the l...
Knowledge.—Printing and the Press. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
Knowledge.-Printing and the Press. KNOWLEDGE, whether received by tra dition, or originating with ourselves, stands often in the place of strength and dexterity. The familiar aphorism, that knowledge is power, has long since passed into a proverb. Why it is power, is evident : there are diiferent ways of do ing the same thing, some which require less strength than others. These easier ways of accomplishing any particular object are discovered sometimes by accident; at others, by su perior sagacity, or education, or both. There are various kinds of knowledge, for the possession of which personal ex perience is necessary. # Hence the superiority of age over youth; and hence, also, the distinction between mere book-knowledge, and what is called practical knowledge, or experi ence. Hence it is that the increase of knowledge is so generally looked to as the chief means of diminishing the toils under which the human race now suffer, and of the increasing pleasures, on the other hand, whic...
The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
The Glass of Gin, (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 68.) After several days' illness, Mary grew better ; and returned Alice's kindness, with such unusual tenderness, as ta touch by it the very inmost cords of this little creature's soul, and to draw from thence, if Mary could have under stood it, a beautiful morah of penitence,, love, and truth. One thing alone pained Alice ; there was ^o un account able a humility in Mary's manner, as, at times to amount to that with which the criminal kneels before the benig nant and pardoning judge, the guilty before the innocent, the morally weals before the self-denying soul of virtue. Touching as was this-psychologically curious-full of meaning to one accus-, tomed to infer -} but then Alice was not yet made a casuist through suffering ; ! and God only knows how stern is tho ' acuteness and the philosophy learnt [ thus ! I As soon as she was able, Mary re sumed her needle and her pen with unusual diligence, and so happy was Alice, so peaceful was their nar...
Be Kind to Your Sister. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
Be Kind to Your Sister. THE following anecting story, which is given in the language of the brother himself, will admonish every boy who reads it, to be kind to his sisters, and especially to avoid blows on thc head, as it is probable the blow given this little girl by her brother was the cause of her death. What a shame for a brother to strike his sister. " One morning in my early life, I, remember to have been playing with my younger sister, not then three, years old. It was one of those brigjit , mornings in spring, that bring joy and, life to the heart, and diffuse gladness and animation through all th& tribes of living creatures. Our feelings were, in, perfect harmony with the universal gladness of nature. Even now I seem to hear the merry laugh of my little sister, as she followed nie through the winding alleys of the garden, her cheek suffused with the glow of health and animation, and her waving hair floating in the wind. "She was an only sister, the sole companion o...

The question in your 5th number must refer to Chedorlaomer, King of Elam, to whom the neighbouring princes paid tribute for so many years, and who, upon their re belling, made the attempt to subdue and punish them, in which he so signally failed through Abraham coming in to the rescue.-?

Oppression of the Maine Law. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Oppression of the Maine Law* A GENTLEMAN waa filing, at a public tabid, against the law of Maine, as depriving men of their natural rights to buy and sell, and get gain; and turning to his neighbour, asked him, if he did not think it high-handed oppression. The gentleman replied " Sir, call it oppression if you please; 1 will state one fact well known to myself. A tax bill was recently brought to me on my city property, of 800 dollars, for which I gave my cheque, I carefully looked into the sub ject, and found that 650 dollars of it were fof \ the support of drunkenness^ Kow, what is " this but oppression 1 But, I suppose, I have no rights ! Rumsellers have all! They may tax me to support criminals and drunkards - they make m# pay 650 dollars, and I must b« still." " Sir," said the gentleman, " Maine is i right. It is the best argument I ever h6ard. It has overthrown all my theory about free trade. I will say no more> but go with you * for a Maine Law in New York." American paper...
Truths and Trifles. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Truths and Trifles. PLEASURE.-Pleasure owes its greatest zest to anticipation. The promise of a shilling fiddle will keep a schoolboy happy for a year; the fun connected with its possession will not last an hour. Now, what is true of school' boys is equally true of men : All they differ in. is in the price of their fiddles* The face of truth is not the less fair for all the counterfeit vizards that have been put upon her. When a drunkard resolves to abstain, the first glass he yields to, though only a glass, is like cutting the cable of a vessel that is riding out a gale on a lee shore. BOYS that have been properly reared are men in point of usefulness at 16, whilst those who have been brought up in idleness are a nuisance at 21. Every thing useful or necessary is cheap est: Walking is the most wholesome exer cise, water the best drink, and plain food the most nourishing and healthy diet-even in knowledge, the most useful is the easiest acquired.
