THE WORD OF GOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

THE WORD OF GOD. _._._ _?__... 11 ^ Ora's word Mke a swift arroto is, < Sent by a skilful hand; And most unerring is the aim , When God gives the command; It sorely rankles in the heart, And nene but Christ can heal the smart. 'Tis said to be a hammer too. And heavy blows are given, Until the flinty is subdued And the hard heart is riven ; Made plastic as the heated wax, And readily God's image takes. Much sharper than a two-edged sword, Made of Damascus steel ; Piercing the joints and marrow through. Making the conscience feel An agony within the soul, Which its own power cannot control. Faddiriyton, r And from the smitten soul issues A long suppressed sigh ; From fear of God's impending -wrath. And knows not where to fly ; But God the Spirit hears the sound, i And shows where mercy may be found. It is a lamp to weary souls Benighted on their road, If followed they shall surely reach A hallowed, safe abode ; Where sin and sorrow, grief and pain» Its sacred precincts ne'e...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL FAMILY DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

'?{¡¿ Australian ¡|flmt Computen, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL ,-. FAMILY DISCIPLINE. IN every family (says a writer in the "British Quarterly") where there are young children there almost daily occur cases of what mothers and servants call '^making a litter." A child has had out its box of toys, and leaves them scattered about the floor. Or a handful of flowers, brought in from a morning walk, is presently seen dispersed over tables and chairs. Or a little girl, making doll's clothes, disfigures the room with threads. In most cases the trouble of rectifying the disorder falls anywhere but in the right place : if in the nursery, the nurse herself, with many grumblings about " tiresome little things," &c, undertakes the task ; if below stairs, the task usually devolves either on one of the elder children, or oh the housemaid ; the transgressor being visited with nothing more than a scolding. In this very simple case, however, there are many parents wise enough to follow out, more...

ARREST OF DECAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

ARREST OF DECAY. You remember reading h >w upon a day not many years since certain miners, working far underground, came upon the body of a poor fellow who had perished in the suffocating pit forty years before. Some chemical agent to which the body had been subjected-an agent prepared in the laboratory of nature-had effect ually arrested the progress of decay. They brought it up to the surface, and for awhile, till it crumbled away through exposure to the atmosphere, it lay there the image of a fine sturdy young man. No convulsion had passed over the face in death-the features were tranquil;: the hair was black as jet. No one recog nized the face ; a generation had grown up since the day on which the rainer went down his shaft for the last time. But a tottering old woman, who- had hurried from her cottage at hearing the news, came up, and she knew again the face which through all these years she had never quite forgot. The poor man was to have been her husband the day after that...

THE CAESARS. NERO.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

THE C iE S A K S. JXERO.- Omtinued. NERO took this opportunity to execute multitudes of people, under pretext that they had been in the conspiracy. Sixjpf the principal men at Rome were con demned without mercy, besides maujfc others of less note, who all suffered death. But the most surprising act of cruelty in Nero at this time, was when he con- j demned Seneca to die, because he pre tended to suspect him of having joined in the plot. A messenger was first sent to the country house of that great philosopher, with information that he wa» accused of beinjr a conspirator against the emperor's life ; but Seneca, who was seated at table with bis wife Paulina, did not seem the least discon certed by this intelligence, though he knew at once that his life would be sacrificed on the occasion. When Nero heard that no alarm had been excited by his message, be became enraged to find himself so little feared, and sent to Seneca an order instantly to kill himself. This awful sentence was recei...

THIB T«T» GLEANINGS. u u U A i THE INFINITE WISDOM, POWER, AND GOODNESS OF GOD, AS DISPLAYED IN THE ANIMAL CREATION.-It is obvi ously impossible to enumerate the amount of the individual living creatures which are always existing on our globe, and partaking of its produce in some way or other. Yet so admirably are the whole placed and disposed, and the size and movements of each so care fully regulated and adapted to us and to _, wo »re neitner disturbed by the number, nor even conscious of it. There is no crowding ; no confusion ; the enormous amount is nowhere visible to our sense. We must calculate, search i it out, in order to know it. We must calculate from what we may observe, be fore we can perceive, or believe the ever palpable but unobtrusive truth. What but an all-mighty, and all-adjusting saga city, infinitely beyond the highest expan- | sion of human genius, could hare arranged such inexpressible multitude of living, sentient, and ever-moving beings into positions, limit...

IMPROMPTU. OH ! what's the cause of this strange motion A furtive trembling of the heart ; Is it Love ? Oh, no ! strange notion Whatsoever thou be, I charge you to depart. Ah ! yes, it must be emulation Rivalism is the more proper word ; I always feel the same when after reading An author I deeply love. Yes, my country, thou art the reason Of this pain T never felt before, This deep feeling thou hast awakened, When reading of thy days of yore. When thou wert one great nation, Diffusing knowledge far and wide, When your sons with emulation Proclaimed aloud thou wert their pride. And now, my country, when the stranger Looks upon thee, perhaps with disdain, Yet, bethink you, tho' your sons are rangers, Still their hearts with thee remain.

CHAPTER XXIV. A Strong Family Likeness. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

CHAPTER XXIV. A Strong Family Likeness;. THE letter which had occasioned young* Latson this crowning triumph over any lingering sympathy or regard among his schoolfellows, read as follows : - " Dear and respected young Master, "You will wonder at seeing this, coming from me; and I little thought, when I went away from *- The Towers,' that it would ever come to this. If I hadn't nursed you, dear Master Claude, when you was a little baby, and if I hadn't closed your dear mamma's eyes, the sainted Lady Ethel, believe me, I never would have troubled you. But I thought that you would remember me, even if you couldn't do anything. I've sent a dutiful word to my old master., the colonel, two months ago, but have heard nothing from him, though I know he is at home. Dear Master Claude, I am now a beggar, without a friend, and without a sixpence in the world 1 After I left * The Towers, ' having saved a little money, as Mr. Grange could tell you, I went to live with a half sister in London ; ...

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

CHAPTER III.-THIED DAY. j The battle had been fought, and the victory won. Mrs. Paley's heart was full of tenderness and sympathy. She eould not have realised the pain that her useless and ceaseless grumbling had caused her husband, or she never would have indulged the habit. She would not make him unhappy for the world ; and now, when the lesson had opened her eyes, she set a guard upon her tongue. Almost always, an habitual grumbler is an indolent person. A man or woman whose mind is occupied has no time to be discontented. But Mrs. Paley's was « kind of moral indolence. She permitted her noble faculties to sleep for the time, and discontent stole in while the sentinel was oft guard. She had chosen a new course of action, but she had to watch with ceaseless vigilance, just to curb the disposition to complain. To be indolent was to lose the battle and fail. *. Forgive me, John." *. I won't say another word, my dear," ke added, with a smile that turned it all toto sunshine. .'Shall ...

THE DRUNKARD'S DEATH—Concluded. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

THE DRUNKARD'S D E A T H.-Concluded. -#-=. FOB two whole days, all three remained in the wretched room, without stirring out. On the third evening, however, the girl was worse than she had been yet, and the few scraps of food they had were gone. It was indispensibly neces sary mat somebody should go out ; and as the girl was too weak and ill, the father went, just at nightfall. He got some medicine for the girl, and a trifle in the way of pecuniary assist ance. On his way back, he earned six pence by holding a horse ; and he turned homewards with enough money to supply their most pressing wants for two days to come. He had to pass the public house. He lingered for an instant, walked passed it, turned back again, lingered once more, and finally slunk in. Two men whom he had not observed, were on the watch. They were on the point of giving up their search in despair when his loitering attracted their atten tion ; and when he entered the public I house, they followed him. " You'll drin...

" What in the world did you bring three quarts for ? I cannot use more than two," replied Mrs. Paley. "Oh, well, now I think of it, Mrs^ Thompson wants a quart, and wished me to get them for her, if the man came along to-day.** "Humph ! Now I think of it, I want them myself, and Mrs. Thompson cannot have them." "Never mind ; I left a quart in the shop for luncheon to-morrow-she can have them." "Do without yourself ?" "Certainly ; if she wants them she can hare them." "You take good care of Mrs. Thompson,*' added Mrs. Paley, with a slight sneer "Becuase I let her have a quart of berries ?" "That is more than any one would do for you or me." "Oh, no ; I guess not." *'I asked her to lend me her washtub, the other morning, and she wouldn't/' replied Mrs. Paley, rather spitefully. "...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 9 March 1861

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 85.) One day there reached Latson, along with a letter from his father (to whom he never wrote but when he wanted money), another letter, directed in a strange, wandering-looking hand, evidently a fe male's put quite a puzzle to him. " Aha! " cried a senior gownsman, looking over his shoulder, as he was sta¡ ring at the direction "Come here, Bristoe, nereus a lark ! John Howard's got a letter from a real woman ! Suppose we look at it first, to see if it's proper for him to read it." And so they all gathered round Latson, *ho hastened, in a burning rage, to pocket the epistle. " Nonsense ! you let him be," shouted Bristoe. " It's from the young lady he saved from drowning-you remember, |je week before last-giving him eternal "»«des, and her hand to boot." . And they all roared and cried, " Bravo, i i ' Bristoe ! " '« Three cheers for the Go Samaritan !" For Latson had seen a little girl fall into the river some days back when' he w...

THE FRIENDS OF EARLY YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

THE FBIENDS OF EARLY YEARS. I sought my youthful home again ; The birds poured forth a tuneful strain; The silver stream its waters flung O'er banks wheré blushing wildflowers clung. The lambs were sporting on the lea, Light waved the milk-white hawthorn tree, And yet I received the scene with tears, I mourned the Friends of early years. I left the spot of life and bloom To seek the churchyard's sheltered gloom, They slept beneath the mossy earth, Untold, unsung, their simple worth. » Yet fondly, softly I avowed That none amid the dazzling crowd", Had shared my hopes, or soothed my feanv Like these-the Friends of early years, That home I wish not now to see, It boasts no charm, no joy for me, Yet Time my feelings cannot chill, j My faithful friends are near me still,, I lift to them my longing eyes, I Whene'er I view the peaceful skies, ¡ For there the blessed home appears, ¡ Where dwell the Friends of early years, î ? !
