GLEANINGS. COMPREHENSIVENESS AND BREVITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

GLEANINGS. COMPREHENSIVENESS AND BREVITY. TALK to the point, and stop when you have reached it. Be comprehensive in what you say. To fill a volume upon nothing is a credit to nobody. There are some men who get one idea into their heads, and but one, and they make the most of it. They produce it on all occasions, till it is worn as thin as charity. The idea is lost amid the rum bling of words and flourishes. Short letters, sermons, and speeches are favourites with us. Commend us to the young man who wrote ' Dear father, I'm going to be marriedand to the old gentleman who replied, " Dear's on, go ahead." Bach are the men for action. They do more than they Jsay. The half is not told in their cases. They are worth their weight in gold for every pur pose in^ life. Reader, in speaking and writing be short and to the purpose, and we shall be^ short with the advice. NSALE.

CAN ANY ONE TELL? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

CAN ANY ONE TELL ? CAN any one tell why men who cannot pay small bills can always find plenty of money to buy liquor, and treat when happening among their friends? Can any one tell how young men who dodge their washerwomen and are always be hind with their landlords, can play billiards night and day, and are always ready for a game of poker or seven up ? Can any one tell how men live and sup port their families who have no income and do no work ; and why others, who are industrious and constantly employed, half starve ? Can any one tell how it is that a man who is too poor to pay for a newspaper, is able to pay twenty-five cents a day for tobacco and cigars ?

A HINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

A HINT. IN concluding a congratulatory ad dress to its readers, on the advent of 1861, the Twofold Bay Telegraph ventures on the following broad hint:-" We must recollect also that the greatest happiness we can enjoy in life is that of making others happy, and this reflection should bring to mind the little outstanding bills due to the baker, the butcher, the milk man, and the washerwoman, and after all these neccessary and useful providers for our physical requirements are satisfi ed, think of the" Home Companion," that nourishes our intellectual organs.

Brave are her crew, and her timbers are good enough; Stout is her tackling, and firm every mast; Surely in her there is sound-hearted wood enough Safely to ride through the storm and the blast. Yet she is drifting, with breakers a-head of her; High roll the billows on weather and lee ; Scornful and pitiful things now are said of her. She that so proudly rode-Queen of the Sea !

NATURE AS A TEACHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

NATURE AS A TEACHER. NATURE is a faultless teacher, and she opposes all her children into the perfec tion of their being. The little bird comes out from the nest; it does not under stand the doctrine of balancing; it clings convulsively with its little feet to the springing spray, But, for all that, Nature does not hold it gently in her hand, for she tosses the branch bravely this way and that. The bird does not fall-it only flatters; and swayed into the doctrine of balancing, the next one sees of it, it is sitting and singing on the topmost billows of the green pine.

A CHILD'S SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

A CHILD'S SYMPATHY. A child's eyes ? those clear wells of undefined thought; what on earth can be more beautiful ? Full of hope, love, and curiosity, when they meet your own. In prayer, how earnest; in joy, how sparkling? in sympathy, how tender. The man who never tried the companion ship of a little child, has carelessly past by one of the greatest pleasures of life, as one passes a rare flower without plucking or knowing its value. A child cannot understand you, you think : Speak to it of the holy things of your religion ; of your grief of the loss of a friend ; of your love of some one you fear will not love in return ; it will take, it is true, no measure or soundings of thought, it will not judge how much you should believe, whether your grief is rational in propor tion to your loss, whether you are worthy or fit to attract the love you seek; but its whole soul will incline in yours, and ingraft itself, as it were, on the feeling which is your feeling for the nour,-.

CONVERSATION AFTER CHURCH.-Wichard, ole fellah, did you observe how that gurl gazed at my harvet ? No, Bwyon, I did not, for there was a sweet cweature in the gallery, whese eyes were positively inverted on my boots all the service.

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL THE RELIGIOUS TRAINING OF THE YOUNG DEMANDS YOUR BEST ENERGIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

C|t Australian Jomt Comysnion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL THE RELIGIOUS TRAINING OF THE YOUNG DEMANDS YOUR BEST ENERGIES. THE remark is commonplace, but true, that the young men are the hope of the church. It is, however, a grave question whether the church is discharging its duties or not to the rising generation. When it is remembered that our future ministers, office-bearers, and teachers are now in the school, we may realize somewhat of the responsibility devolving on the church in relation to those in cipient witnesses for Christ. Can man be engaged in a sublimer work than in bringing Christian truth to bear on the opening mind ? The sooner the intel lect and the heart are brought into contact with the Saviour, the likelier are they to be fortified against the assaults of the enemy. Christ should have the first hold on the infant powers. Hence the duty of those who " know Him and the power of His resurrection," to engage heartily in the work of juvenile evangeli sation. There is ...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER XXII. Love and Philosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 58») CHAPTER XXII. Love and Philosophy. " DEPEND upon it, dear Maude, that, fcs the world grows wiser, our distinc tions between trades and professions, and all the rest of it, will pass away, There isn't a more ill-used, misapplied word {ft the language than that word respecta bility." It was a second oousin of the Lady Maude Blance, a middle aged reotor of a small parish, and an accepted suitor for his cousin'& hand, who made this r»> mark, sitting in the same room as that in which, now so long ago, Ethel and the Honorable Hugh had discussed the duties of a landlord. Ernest Mongomery would, very likely, have been thought a strange lover by some of your drawing-room exquisites, who understand by courtship, bracelets and small talk; perhaps a very cold lover, by others who make love only to a pretty face, and would be quite happy with a wife modelled after the manner of the ladies in the hairdresser's show window, very ...

THE DRUNKARD'S DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

THE DRUNKARD'S DEATH. « WE will be bold to say, that there is scarcely a man in the constant habit of walking, day after day, through any of the crowded thoroughfares of London, who cannot recollect among the people whom he "knows by sight," to use a familiar phrase, some being of abject and wretched appearance whom he re members to have seen in a very different condition, whom he has observed, sink ing lower and lower, by almost imper ceptible degrees, and the shabbiness and utter destitution of whose appearance, at last, strike forcibly and painfully upon him, as he passes by. Is there any man who has mixed much .with society, or whose avocations have caused him to mingle, at one time or other, with a great number of people, who cannot call to mind the time when some shabby, miserable wretch, in rags and fifth, who shuffles past him now in all the squalor of disease and poverty, was a respectable tradesman, or a clerk, or a man following some thriving pursuit, with good pro spects...

A WONDERFUL STORY !-OURIODS CLAIM. Ay American citizen, Mr. Robert A. Parish, §jun" has memoralised Mr. Bu. chanan, asking rhis intention ^as to a demand of £60,000 upon the French Emperor. Mr, Parish says his claim is based upon a personal ^promise of the Emperor some time about the year 1853, to give him the amount in question, if he succeeded in demonstrating the existence of a gold field similar to that of Califor nia, and accessible to the arms of France. He has fulfilled this condition, and France is not only in possession of a gold-field, but has worked it for several years, and obtained an annual profit of £20,000,000. The scene of the wealth is in the interior^of Africa, especially east of Senegambia and the Kong Mountains. After an interview, thirteen vessels and 2500 men were despatched for the con quest of the territory, and the result has <been the unparallelled opulence" of his -Majesty.

WAS ADAM BLACK OR WHITE? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 February 1861

"WAS ADAM BLACK OR WHITE DR. ^GUTHRIE, at a meeting held in Edinburgh recently, said that he was not sure hut what Adam was black. (Much and long-continued laughter, and cheers.) He would tell them the reason why. (Renewed laughter.) Major Dan ham, a distinguished African traveller Meat to that country, and spent three or four years in the home and cradle of the slave race, and he had got so accustomed to the dark beauties of Africa, and had got so much to admire what men called God's image in ebony, that when he reached the shores of our land, and saw the white ladies, oh, they looked very .sickly to him. (Laughter.) That was a fact in a man's experience. (Renewed laughter.) And he was now going to tell them a fact in philosophy and he had never heard it answered. The cele brated Dr. Fleming, professor of natural science in the Free Church College, and one of the greatest naturalists of his day, maintained that black was the right and proper color, and that we are all bleached up- ...

CHAPTER XXV. Dissolves a Scene. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

CHAPTER XXV. Dissolves a Scene. " SPECIMENS of my h and-writing before receiving lessons of Mr. Lewis.'' Here I followed a performance very much like that of a spider just emerged from an ink-bottle, and drying himself on the paper. Specimens of my hand-writing after receiving lessons of Mr. Lewis." Here followed a very extraordinary line of penmanship in large text, another in small text, and another in running hand ; all excellent in their way. This advertisement, if it did not move him to enlist under the particular master in question, set Hugh Church on the taking writing lessons in an evening, after working hours. If half a dozen lessons were not enough, he took more, and he soon wrote so admirable a hand that Ruth's employ ers wondered where she had picked up such an accomplished amanuensis, when her accounts went in. One of Hugh's greatest enjoyments was a bookstall that stood somewhere between number nineteen and "The Swan.'' He invariably left home early enough to get a goo...

Lilias, up!" he softly said; and far away we flew, By clouds, and stars, and rosy bowers all siiverM o'er with dew. "And up and up we went; and still the stars were everywhere, And mild and murmuring music roll'd along the balmy air : And, O ! I wist not of the change, so sudden and so bright ; But, mother dear, I stood before...

"You don't know what's good for them, I see," interposed Mr. Serle. But the subject dropped.

CHAPTER II.—SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

CHAPTER II.-SECOND DAY. John Paley was of an easy temper. He was disposed to make the best of things as newfound them ; but there was no such thing as compromising with in cessant grumbling. Unlike many others he could not be driven to the dram-shop, nor even the usual haunts of loafers in the country places. He was obstinately bent on staying at borne in the evening. He was fond of reading, and home was the centre of his thoughts. Even the perversity of his wife could not eradicate his deeply seated love of home Still, home was not half so pleasant as it might be. Mary loved him-he could not doubt that. During a long illness, the winter befere, she had been unremit ing in her devotion. A piece of red-hot iron flew into his eye, so that the ball of it had nearly run out. He had suffered the most intense agony. Day by day he had groaned with anguish, and seen the tears of his wife fall as she witnessed his suffering. By night while he tossed in agony, she;had watched by him nor slept...
