FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. A BEAUTIFUL brunette said her brown complexion was owing to her being so often toasted. THE man whose conscience troubles him, proposes having it arrested for disturbing the peace. A PERSON being asked why he had given his daughter in marriage to a man with whom he was at enmity, answered -"I did it out of pure revenge." A CLIMAX.-Why is it difficult to starve in the desert ?-Because of the sand-which-is there. And how came the sandwiches there ? -Ham came first, and his followers mustered and bred there. A FELLOW who was caught beating his wife, excused himself by saying, " The treasure which we value most, we hide." * THE best of friends must part,' as the rat observed to his tail. 'YOURS is a very hard case,'said the fox to the oyster. "'Tis plain! 'tis plain!" Dick musing, cried, " What's plain, my dear?" said Dick's young bride, "Your face, my dear," said Dick,'and sigh'd. ANY fool can ride a quiet animal; but it is when the Nag of Life 'jibs' and 'cuts u...
SIGHTS AND SCENES IN SYDNEY, BY EVERARD EVERGREEN. THE YOUNGER. GENTLEMAN. No. IV.—THE ROCKS. SECOND SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
SIGHTS AND SCENES IN SYDNEY, BY EVERARD EVERGREEN. THE YOUNGER. GENTLEMAN. « IV.-THE ROCKS. SECOND SKETCH. THE readers Interested in my free-and easy sketches, cannot have forgotten the sharp-featured, intelligent, somewhat testy little gentleman, whom I intro duced in my last hurrigraph. He seemed to know the neighbourhood and its nu merous windings thoroughly well: for lie jumped down uneven steps-swept through obscure alleys-turned lound projecting corners of old huts, nearly every one of them in the last stage of decrepitude, until we at length gained the remarkable wooden bridge that spans the cutting in Argyle-street. Here for the first time since my arrival, I observed a decided old-world feature in this metro polis. It is impossible for any one possessing keen sensibilities to lean over the slight rail of the wooden way alluded to; look down into the profound black ness, set in a frame by the walls of per pendicular rock, through which the cutting has been made;listen to the...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. THE KANGAROO, A BALLAD FOR LITTLE BOYS, BY CHARLES HARPUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 April 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLI O. &nbsp; --o-- THE KANGAROO, A BALLAD FOR LITTLE BOYS, BY CHARLES HARPUR. [This piece-insinuating the beauty of a helpful spirit of pity-was written expressly for the amusement and instruction of my own little boy, Washington ; and as it pleases him abundantly, I suppose it will be equally agreeable to other little boys, and to that end publish it -C. H.] A pretty playful Kangaroo Dwelt by a mountain stream, There drinking of its waters And oft mirrored in its gleam. And there he dwelt for many a day, Till he grew large and fair, For the grass he cropt was growthful Because of the moisture there. So to himself one day he said In a proud and pleasant mood, No beast more beautiful than I E'er bounded through the wood; And I have a gentle mate, and she Hath borne me a gentle child, So that never a happier creature Was free of the forest wild! Just then the bay of a Hunter's dog Was heard on the mountain side: It smote him through with terror, And dashed his...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. WILLIAM AND MARY; A RECITATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
CHILDREN'S POR TP OLIO. _?_ -w WILLIAM AND MARY; A RECITATION. BY GEORGE ROY. »TWAS midnight's deepest, darkest hour, 'The clock had just struck two, "When Mary-lonely watching-raised The sash, the street to view, She strained her eyes, hut nought could see Her drooping heart to cheer ; She listened, hut his well-known step Fell not upon her ear. " He soon must come !" she said-and yet Her heart o'erflowed with fear ; And slowly o'er her blighted cheek, There stole a burning tear. She inly pray'd to God for strength To bear her heavy fate. A drunkard's Wife ! ' No, no !' she cried " It is not yet too late To turn him from his erring ways. Oh ! Father, touch his soul, And cleanse him from this leprosy, For thou canst make him whole ; Oh ! let him see the drunkard's late, In truth's own searching light, His children's crushed and bleeding hearts ; Oh ! rouse him with the sight Of all the woes that fast approach His broken hearted wife ; Oh ! turn his erring footsteps hack From paths o...

All sons of this clime my first we would see, My second for ever is wash'd hy the sea, My whole is a spot where hundreds resort, For picnic enjoyment and holiday sport. E. K. III.

FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. ¡ ! -w LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THINGS. Look on the bright side. It is the right side. The times may be hard, but it will make them no easier by wearing a gloomy and sad countenance. It is the sunshine and not the cloud that makes a flower. There is that always before or around us which should cheer and fill the heart with warmth. The sky is blue ten times where it is black once. You have troubles, it may be. So have others. None are free from them. Perhaps it is as well that none should be. They give sinew and tone to life ; fortitude and courage to man. That would be a dull sea, and the sailor would never get skill, where there was nothing to disturb the surface of the ocean. It is the duty of every one to extract all the happiness and enjoyment he can without and with in him, and above all he should look on the bright side of things. What though things do look so dark ? The lane will turn ; and the night will end in broad day. In the long run, the great b...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEN. j (Continued from page 162.) 'AY!' replied Mrs. Halton, 'Lady Jane is a true friend. Though my boy John here had to take up his father's work whilst he was so young-he wasn't more than seventeen then, and he isn't quite twenty yet-she was so good as to make no difference, but said that if he didn't do things quite so well at first he would learn in time. So you see this helped to keep the business in our hands, and since then it has increased greatly, and in a few years John'll be as substantial a man as any the country round.' As she said this, not without maternal intent, Mrs. Halton glanced at Liddy, with a look as much as said, 'In these prosperous days for which my boy shall strive, this is the dove that I hope will fly home to his ark and bring him peace.' Perhaps her son thought so too, for his large grave eyes, so full of truth and tenderness, watched the lovely child. 'And Miss North,' said Norman, ' she does not talk so much as my lady, still ...

CHAPTER XVII. A DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
CHAPTER XVII. A DISCOVERY. ABOUT three years previous to the death of her father Bertha had had a severe illness. Her recovery was so slow as to lead the eminent physician who attended her, to strongly urge the abso lute necessity of change of air, and a voyage or excursion that would arouse by variety and picturesqueness of scene for some weeks in continuation. As she herself saw this necessity if she had desire to save a life so precious to her father, she set out on a solitary sea-voyage to Scotland and the Western Isles, as such would give what was requisite at the least possible cost. She took nothing more with her than a carpet-bag and a few books, and was thus the most in dependent of voyagers. Proceeding from London to Edinburgh by sea, thence by railway to Glasgow, she took passage by a steam vessel then ready to start for a fortnight or three weeks' cruise amidst the Western Isles. The period being autumn, is was crowd ed with tourists intent upon the same purpose of chang...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. DEAR MR. EDITOR,-I want you to say a little to your lady friends about their " small waists." So much has been written on the evil consequences of tight lacing, that it may, perhaps, be super fluous to allude to it again, but the sub ject will not be exhausted until the prac tice is discontinued. Did you ever know any of your lady friends confess to tight lacing? No, 1 am sure you never did, and they will challenge you to prove their clothes tight, as they hold in their breath and compress their waste with their hands to cause the drapery to appear loose. They hope to deceive you as they deceive themselves. Never mind how loose the dress appears, just notice the sudden diminution in size from the armpit to the waist and the truth will be apparent. Poor deluded girls think small waists a beauty. Why do not their friends undeceive them, and acquaint them with the structure of the human frame, which should, in fact, form part of the education of every woman. A small wais...

%\t Australian Jome (ßompaniün, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. -? THE BANNS OF MURDER. &lt;* I PUBLISH the banns of marriage," says the clergyman, in an audible and «olemn tone, " And I," says the Demon of drink, in an inaudible chuckle, " I publish the banns of murder." " I promise to love and to cherish her all the days of my life/' says the young bridegroom, before the altar, " You will do nothing of the kind," mutters the Demon of Drink from underneath; "you will heather head with the broomstick ; you will give her a black eye nearly every week, and call her all the foul epithets that a low and scurrilous tongue can vent." " I pro ' mise to love, honor, and obey," says the bride, casting herself with fond and sanguine hope on the unknown future, but trustful in the promises of the man that has wooed her. " You will do neither," whispers the evil spirit, with a malignant prophecy. You will learn to hate him, to curse the sound of his footfall, to tremble at his angry words, to...
