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

THE CAESARS. I NERO. - Continued. J ST. PAUL was at Rome during the dreadful persecution by Nero, before whom he had once been called to appear some years previous to this time, on which occasion he had shown the courage and resolution which wee worthy of a Christian apostle, whose strength was not from man, but fromGod. His friends were so alarmed when he was summoned before the. emperor, that " all men for sook him ;" and we read that Demas. of whom he had once judged favourably as his feUow-liboUrer, had forsaken him. Paul was enabled on that occasion to stand alone and undaunted before the tyrant of Rome, and to defend the cause of Christ with the same boldness as he had formerly shown before Felix and Agrippa. In this way, doubtless, Nero and all his attendants heard for once a clear ex planation of the gospel; for we read Paul's declaration, that his " bonds in Christ were manifest in all the palace" (Phil, i., 13) ; and though Nero's hard and wicked heart did not turn to God,...

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

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 104.) " WELL," said that worthy lady, who was now quite recovered, and who had flung no more pewter pots at Hugh's forehead, " I can't blame you, Hugh Church, for you've had a poor life of it here with us, and you've seen many things lads shouldn't see : and I don't know that we can help a good deal that goes on. But I don't like your going, Hugh Church, one bit, for all that." And if you won't think, good reader, that we are imposing on you, we will venture to say, that Mrs. Slike brought up, just then, the corner of her apron, and first touched her left eye, and then blew her nose, or seemed to do it. She always blew her nose when she wiped her eye, not because the nose wept, but because the display of any emotion on her part, appeared to require a public apology, and the blowing furnished it. In the course of an afternoon just be fore his time at the public-house expired, Mr. Slike came into the cellar where Hugh was busy with ...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL SIXTEEN HUNDRED LIVES LOST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

C|)f Australian Hom* Compilion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL -'- 1 SIXTEEN HUNDRED LIVES LOST. SUCH is the title of a leading article in a recent number of an English paper in which the writer calls attention to the " terrible accidents upon the coasts that distinguished the autumn and winter months of 1859, and led to the anticipation of a dismal story when the statistics of the year had been completed, and which expectation, to his regret, had not been disappointed." After stating the loss of property, he says, " but more melancholy still, the fearful and unparalleled number of 1645 persons lost their lives by these catastrophes, and all, be it remembered, on our own coasts, where, if there be a liability of disaster through the vast con gregation of shipping, there ought, on the other hand, to be a supply of I resources sufficient to check such disasters," he then complains of the I " lamentable indifference" to all this, even in maritime districts, and calls the attention to the " t...

GLEANINGS. CORN AND OIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

GLEANINGS CORN AND OIL. OUR maize is a precious plant. It gives us bread ; it makes our pork ; it is tooth some for kine ; it is grand for hominy ; our poultry are mostly made from it; horses like it; its stalks supply sugar; the syrup from it produces alchool ; the envelope of the ear dried makes a sweet and refreshing bed, and now it is found that it produces a clear burning fluid that burns with a soft light without odour, without smoke, and that; it is inexpen sive, affording a good lighten-an ordinary kreosene lamp for half a penny in an hour. The corn«oil is as clear and colourless as water.

MY POOR MARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

MY POOR MARY. OH cruel death ! thy fatal dart Hath peirced my own poor Mary's heart. Speak now, thou ruthless tyrant ; say Why did'st thou seize so young a prey? Could not the ranks, of tottering age Thy hungry appetite assuage 1 ThoBe, who, fron depth of misery's gloom, Would hail with joy, the friendly tomb. Why fill for me this bitter cup, To seethe my torn heart's fountain up ? Did her endearing ceaseless love, Thy jealousy and envy move ? Dids't thou behold my youthful bride Welcome me home at eventide With cheerful looks, and luscious kiss And envy me my happiness 1 Could not her unassuming grace, Her happy, mild and placid face, Her love-lit eye, her sunny smile, To pity, thy stern heart beguile 1 I gaze around my cheerless home, »And mourn her sad untimely doom ; In all ï see, her hand I trace, But ah, I miss her smiling face. " Hush. ! hush !"-a voice speaks to my heart "No longer rashly blame death's dart, 'Twas God that bid him aim the blow Which laid your earthly idol lo...

DAY BREAK AT THE DIGGINGS. I 1 ' ? - » * * # And now it wa» cold, much colder than it was before, darker too, no moon now, only the silver stars ; nature seemed to lie stark and stiff and dead. All tended to shivering and gloom-yet a great event approached. A single event, a thousand times weightier to the world each time it comes than if with one fell stroke all the king doms of the globe became republic, and all the republics empires, so to remain a thousand years ! An event a hundred times more beautiful than any other thing the eye can hope to see while in the flesh, yet it regaled the other senses too, and blessed the universal heart. Before this prodigious event came its little heralds scross across the face of night. First came a little motion of cool, cool air1-it was dead still before, then an undefinable freshness, then a very slight but rather grateful smell from the soil of the conscious earth. Next twitter ed from the bush one little hesitating chip. Craake ! went the l...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE GREAT KANGAROO. Macropus—MAJOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. i THE GREAT KANGAROO. I ^ Haoropua-MA JO E. 9 THE family of Marsupial^' to which this animal belongs, are an intensive group, differing essenti ally from all others in organiza tion. The first species belong ing to this OTder that was brought under the notice of Zoologists, were those of America - the opossums. The leading^ pecul iarity in all these animals, is that the mother has a pouch, or purse, to which the young fly upon the approoch of danger, or enter when fatigued, and may often be seen peeping out to as certain whether it is safe to venture abroad. The Kangaroo is so well known to our readers, that a description is unnecessary beyond our illustration. In size it varies, some are stated to stand seven feet high, their leaps are prodigious, often clearing obstacles eight feet high. The flesh is similar to venison. They are being gradually driven to the depths of the interior, but, as they readily become domesti cated we should suggest, that a ûumb...

A POET BOY'S LOVE WISHES* BY CHARLES HA BP OB. .'Ah, that yon Moon, when thus silvery beam in?, Hight come through the spells of my passionate dreaming. In the guise of a lady fair, blessing and. blest, ! And pillow my head on her beautiful breast ! " Ah, that yon Star which in heaven is whitest, Hight come when Love's visions around me are1 brightest, Come like a fancy-pale Girl from her rest, And rap me away to its home in the West ! " Ah, that the Spirit of Music by flowing When Love, the pure test of all beauty, is glow ing, Might take such a shape as my heart can con ceive And breathe in my arms like a daughter of Eve !

CHAPTER XXIV. Coming and Going. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

CHAPTER XXIV. Coming and Going. GET into a London omnibus on a wet day. There is just " room for one " on the right-hand side. Not a single passenger on that side is going to leave the vehicle till he gets to the end of the journey ; and yet, ten to one, you will have passed along through that crush of knees right to the top. There you will sit down, half of you on a lady's lap, the other half on the sharp handle of an old gentleman's umbrella. If one thought occurs to you at that moment with greater force than any other, it is that you are not wanted there. Directly the door was opened, and the cad assured you," Plenty o'" room sir,/ giving a click or a hiss, or a slap of the leather on the roof, to tell the driver he might shake you down into your proper place as soon as he pleased, you discov ered at once that you were not wanted there.

RAISING THE WIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

RAISING THE WIND. Two Yankees on their travels through the States, having indulged in a little gambling one night, found themselves completely stripped of their cash, and pursued their journey with melancholy forebodings of the future. One of them relates the manner in which they escaped from their difficulty as follows : " This will never do, Harry," said Cobb, as we jogged leisurely along'. " Never," said I. .* We must hit upon some plan to raisej the wind," continued he. " I wish we could," said I. " Think of something," said he. " I'll try," said I ; and I commenced turning over in my mind every plan I could think of that would be likely to relieve us from our difficulty. " But raising the wind" by the mere process of thought is an achievement which has puzzled sharper intellects than mine; and I was about abandoning the twentieth project that had offered itself to my mind, when Cobb, who was riding some distance in advance, suddenly checked his horse, and, wheeling round in the...

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. CHAPTER II. The Night Journey. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 March 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. CHAPTER II. The Night Journey. MKS. DANESBURY naturally felt impatient for particulars, and pressed Thomas Harding to relate them, as they.sped on their way. He was enabled to do so, having had them detailed over to him at length by Jessy. Mrs.Danesbury listened to the end, but she was not satisfied. " I cannot comprehend," she remarked *' The tiucture of opium has been in the closet in my bedroom undisturbed since the night it was first brought into the house. I had the toothache badly, and sent to the chemist's for some. Sarah went for it ; and, knowing I was in pain, she brought it away without giving time to label it. I placed it in my closet, and how it is possible for Glisson to have gone thither for it, and taken it, believing it was the baby's cough mixture, which she kept in her own nursery, I cannot conceive. It is an understood thing in the house, that nobody interferes with what may be in the closet but myself- I should not be so much surprised had it...

THE CAESARS. NERO—Concluded. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

-,-t _ THE CM SAES. NERO- Concluded. THE rebellion was begun by Viadex, a brave general who commanded the army in Gaul. He was anxious to con vince all men that his intention was only to save the Romans from tljeir present slavery, and not to raise himself to power; so he selected Gralba, who had long been know for his courage and good conduct, and at once proclaimed him emperor of Bdme, amidst shouts of joy and triumph from the soldiers. Yindex was so impatient for the tyrant's JW1, that Fhe even declared, that " whoever brought him Nero's head, might cut off his in exchange." When the news reached Nero of this sudden revolt, he was scarcely at all alarmed, but went to the theatre as usual. He seemed as much afraid that had' lost bis voice for singing, owing to a cold, as that he had lost his empire, and was much more angry at Vindex for sailing him a bad musician than a bad emperor. It was very different, some days afterwards, when intelligence reached Nero that his enemies were m...

HINTS ON BATHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

HIKTS ON BATHINGr. THE most cleansing bath is a warm one of from 96 deg. to 100 deg., into which the whole body is immers ed. If cleansing alone to be the aim, the hotter the water the better, up to 108 deg. It expands the pores, dives well into them, and increases the circular tion for the time being. But since it is J an unnatural agent, it exhausts the physical powers, and leaves us prostrate. For health, therefore, rt should be spar ingly indulged in, except in persons of rapid and heated circulation. Even with such, it should be used with discretion, and the time of remaining in the bath should never exceed a few minutes. The cold bath of from 60 deg. to- 70 deg., on the other hand, cleanses less, but invi gorates more. It should therefore be avoided by persons of full temperament, and becomes really dangerous after eat ing, or even after a long rest following a heavy meal. If you have supped largely over night, or been foolish, enough to dripk stimulating liquids, you should c...

THE CLEFT IN THE GLACIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

THE CLEFT IN THE GLACIER. + THE Glacier des Boisons is one of those which we traversed in the ascent of Mount Blanc. It lies shut in by the Aiguille de Mint£ on the left hand and by the Montagne de la Cote on the right, Most people now-a^days know what a glacier is, thanks to brave Albert Smith, and the stereoscopic slides. To those, however, who may not have attained to this knowledge, I may say that a glacier is a large plain of frozen snow, some times hundreds of feet in depth; and that its whole body is not unfrequently covered with cracks and fissures, some of which may scarcely be a foot wide, and others perhaps thirty or forty feet across. These fissures form the chief danger of the journey across the glaciers; the footing on the edges of them is often uncertain and treacherous, and should the traveller's courage fail him, or should the natural bridges of ice, which are sometimes formed from one side to the other, give way, he would be hurled in an instant down a frightful ch...

A DISTINCT ACTION OF JUDGING MIND IS TO BE OBSERVED IN SOME KIND OF FISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

A mSTTlTCT ACTION OF JUDGING MItiD IS TO BE OBSERVED IX SOME KlND OF FtSH. THE CH®TODON ROSTRATUS is about six or eight inches long, frequents the sea shore in the East Lidies. When it observes a fly sitting on the plants that grow in shallow water, it swims to the distance of five or six feet, and then with surprising dexterity ejects out of its tubular mouth a single drop of water, which never fails striking the fly into the sea, when it soon becomes its prey. Hijjnmel, a Dutch Governor, Had some of thesreiish put into a tub of water, which never failed to hit their mark. Sharon Turner makes the fol lowing remarks on the above:-" There,'* says he, " is a distinct action of judging mind, that directs the projectile blow on the insects it perceives and desires to make its food; for it requires a careful proportioning of the force to the distance, and to the amount of water that is thrown; in this operation an accurate perception and instantaneous judgment are necessary in order to p...
