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

ART AND SCIENCE. STEAM CARRIAGE FOR COMMON EOABS. -IT would seem as though the difficul ties which have hitherto prevented the adoption of steam conveyance upon or dinary roads were being gradually over come, for only a short time since the English journals gave an account of a journey of fourteen miles from Inverness to Beauly, accomplished by the Earl of Caithness, who was accompanied by the Countess and the Rev. B. Ross, of Kin tore. Owing to its being market day there, the road was filled with horses and conveyances of all kinds. His lordship passed through them all without any more inconvenience to the general traffic or alarm to horses than if he had been in a carriage-and-four. So perfectly had he the whole moving power under his control, that he stopped more quickly than an ordinary carriage and horses eonld draw up. The machine drove up the hills without difficulty, and descended at any rate the driver wished with per feotease and salety. The performance of the carriage has...

HOBBS, THE AMERICAN ARTIZAN. A Stray Leaf or Two of Adventure from his Note-Book. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 February 1861

HO BBS, THE AMERICAN ARTIZAN. A Stray Leaf or Two of Adventure from his Note-Book, THE ancestry of Hobbs is English, iiis father being born in the metropolis of England, and his maternal parents a native of Montgomery, in the beautiful county of Shropshire. Just before the birth of their third son, Alfred (which occurred in Boston), they emigrated to the United States, so that our hero barely escaped being an Englishman, an acci dent which the Americans need not regret, as any country might put a laurel in her brow at the citizenship. At the age of five, little Alfred lost his father by the hand of death, and was sent by his widowed mother to a farm near the town of Westfield, Massachusetts, where he remained up to the age of fourteen, working on the farm during the summer months, and attending a village school in the winter. Bfclr this domestic life of quietude did not 4gree with the tempera ment of the lad, for about this time he conceived a strong desire to brave the perils of th...

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

MANNER OF MILKING. Tee manner of milking exerts a more powerful and lasting influence on the productiveness of the cow than most of the farmers are aware. That a slow and careless milker soon dries up the best of cows every practical farmer knows. The first requisite of a good milker is, of course, the utmost cleanli ness. Without this the milk is unendur able. The udder should, therefore* be properly cleaned before the milking com j mences. The milker may commence gradually and gently, but should stea dily increase the rapidity of the opera tion until the udder is emptied, using a pail sufficiently large to hold all, without the necessity of changing. Cows are very sensitive, and the pail cannot be changed, nor the milker stop or rise i during the process of milking without leading the cow, more or less, to withhold her milk. The utmost care should be taken to strip to the last drop, and do it rapidly, and not in a slow and negligent manner, which is sure to have its effect on the ...

HAVE FAITH. BY CHARES HARPUR. HAVE faith in God! for surely He lis good as He is wise and great: Have faith-for here or elsewhere, we Shall prove the harmony of Fate! Though storms the depths of life uptoss Though breakers strew its shores with loss, And Love be slain by Hate! Yet Evil,-rightly understood, Is- but the shadowy test cf more substantial Good. That this is worthy of belief, The heart-thrills it creates declare ; The holy calm it brings to Grief The assurance, like an heavenly air It breathes into the soul, to All The broken measures of the will Made dissonant by despair ; Till, touched as with Apollo's rod, Even Death's the bard, of IiOpe-0 then have faith in.

THE CAESARS. NERO.— [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

THE CAESARS. NERO. - Continued. .NERO next ordered a ship to be built in such a curious manner that, on touch ing a spring, it suddenly fell to pieces ; and by this means the emperor hoped that his mother would certainly be drowned. After it was all ready, Agrip pina was invited to enter it, on pretence of taking a short voyage, from which her cruel son expected that she would: never return alive ; but the sailors who had been ordered to execute his plan of sinking the ship, did not manage to make it go down in the deep water quite so suddenly as had been intended; so that the empress, who was an excellent swimmer, contrived to keep above water till another vessel, which happened to pass, took her on board, and brought her safe back to Rome. Nothing could exceed the rage of Nero at the failure of his wicked intention and he resolved, from this moment, not to conceal his resolution of putting Agrippina to death immediately, since he pretended to think that, while she lived, his own l...

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. CHAPTER I. By Mistake.-The Dinner Table. Tt was a winter's afternoon, cold and bright, and the large nursery window of Danesbury House looked out on an ex tensive and beautiful prospect, Seated at it, occupied in repairing some fine lace, was a smart young woman of twenty, an upper maid, sensible and sharp-looking, with quick, dark eyes, and a healthy colour. " There's the baby, Glisson," she sud denly exclaimed, as a child's cry was heard from the adjoining room. Glisson, the person she addressed, was a woman of middle age, active and slender, the valued nurse in the Danes bury family. She was sitting in a low rocking chair, right in front of the fire, nodding at intervals. She half opened her eyes and turned them on Jessy, with a somewhat dull or stupid expression. " Did you speak ?" she asked. The baby, Glisson. Don't you hear him ?" Glisson rose# and stepping into the night-nursery, brought forth little Wil liam Danesbury, a lovely child of nine months old.

WILL MAKE THE ATTEMPT. BY THE AUTHOR OF "BEGIN AT HOME. "I WILL make the attempt, I will endeavour to strangle this monster, whose wiles have lured me to ruin; I will become a teetotaler; it is my only chance of escape from this vortex of misery wherein I am now engulphed.*' Such were the thoughts of Frederick Burns, as with his head buried in his hands he cowered over a miserable fire in a miserable furnished apartment. He was an intelligent shoemaker, married, but had no children. A* he was a good workman his income was considerable, «nd the first few years of his married life were spent in comfort; but the want of offspring caused much discontent in the minds of Frederick and his wife, and they sought to fill up the void from other sources. Many of their evenings were spent at the singing saloons, and the consequence of these visits was a distaste for their regular labour and a growing taste for exciting stimulants. The interval between the evenings of each day, when their visits...

"THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMETH RtGHT UNTO A MAN, &c." Pro. xiv. 12. THERE is a way, that's right, to some men seeming, i Because, a frequented, and a joyous way ; With show of happiness for ever gleaming. "With thoughtless mirth,-is gay. Youth, buoyant youth, is therein careering, Quaffing forbidden pleasures without care, Heeds not the danger, nor the warning fearing, Nor sees the hidden snare. And, manhood too, with strong self-will deciding, To reach the goal of all his care and toil, His coffer fills, his boundaries enlarging, Though these his peace despoil. There age is found with tottering footsteps, bending Toward the earth, as searching for its tomb, With passions gathering strength as life's de clining, Unconscious of its doom. '. There, laurel'd brows, of those who've climbed Parnassus; With pens dipp'd deep in an invenom'd mood; There mars, fierce horses, mostly found tyrannous, With swords besmear'd with blood.

LOVE OF NATURE, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

LOVE OF NATURE, HE who has a lore for Nature can never be alone. In the shell he picks up oa the shore, in the leaf fading at his feet, in the grain of sand, and in the morning dew, he sees enough to employ his mind for hours. Such a mind is never idle. He studies the work of his Maker, which he sees all around him, and finds a pleasure of which the devotee of sin and folly can form no conception.

CHAPTER XXIII. Marks an Era. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

CHAPTER XXIII. Marks an Era. IF there had been a peal of bells at Latson Towers, they would assuredly have been rung when Claude started for Eton: and all the household would have taken turns in the belfry. Except two. Those two were his father and old Ralph. have when a paroxysm was upon him, the colonel made an idol of his boy, so that Claude's life had passed in alternate abuses and embraces-as the life of many a child does, where the parent has 110 principle but only passion to govern ?with. It went, therefore, to the sick man's heart, that, a little new squabble having occurred between them the night before, the lad actually started the next morning without a single " Good-bye.'' Old Ralph came into his master's bed room at his usual time, and found Latson already awake. " Is that you, Ralph ?'. " Yes, sir.'' And Ralph spoke thickly, and with a slight catch of the breath. u Tell master Claude to come to me ; he needn't wait until he's dressed. I want him directly." There was a ...
