TO LUCILLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

TO LUCILLE. THERE are moments of deep passion. The life-springs of the heart, That flash across the memory, And from it never part. There are feelings deep and fervent, From worldly dross quite free ; And sentiments of hallow'd faith : Such is my love for thee! There are words that fail in utterance, Beyond the heart's deep core. That burn thereon with fervid troth, 'Till thought's itself 8 na more. There are looks that are unfathomable* Like the depths of yonder sea, That tell the heart's deep love aad truth. All these I bear to thee I DBLTA.

COLONIAL NEW S. GotJiiBTJBur BAND OF HOPE.-On "Wed nesday, 20th of March, the usual monthly meeting of this society was held in the Baptist Chapel. Mr. Robert Oraig pre sided, and several speechesr with vocal and instrumental musie, entertained and enlivened the audience, which, as on other occasions, was numerous and attentive. MELANCHOLY AND FATAL ACCIDENT. DEATH OF MB. J. H. STBICKLAND.-It is our painful duty to have, to record another death, the result of intemperance, rendered the more poignant because the deceased had just become a member of our staff, and had been for many years connected with the press in the adjoin ing colonies. On Easter Monday, the deceased had accompanied a pleasure party on their trip to Port Stephens in his capacity as reporter. On the arrival of the steamer-at the wharf, he was seen on deck without either coat or waistcoat, wing handed on shore by two sailors belonging to the Sampson.

THE MEDUSA, OR SEA NETTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

THE MEDUSA, OB SEA* NETTLE. They consist of a tender gelatinous mass of varying figure, furnished with arms, or a tentacular process. The larger species when touched cause a tingling and redness, and are therefore called sea nettles. Mr. Wilderspin, in the sea of Forth, seems to have been affected by one of them. " Whilst swim ming, I was "suddenly struck, as by an electric shock, I then discovered that I had swam on a gelatinous substance, n^ut three feet in diameter, which n-oved" to he a fish sirrronnded by stints. In a moment it enwrapped me so that every part of my body was stung, and I could only disengage myself by tearing the animal piecemeal from me, at the peril of my hands, which felt just as if I had poured vitro! on them. With great difficulty I swam back toward shore ; but when I reached the machine, I had not strength enough to d-ess; ancT was afterward led home by two persons. A medical friend ordered an application of oil and vinegar. Intense agony, as if stung by t...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL AN ORATION ON TEETOTALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

C|* Australian J-amt CompaRiflw, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL ? AN ORATION ON TEETOTALISAL To arrive at the most striking idea of the vast benefit to society at large, which must'accompany the general adoption and practice of the Teetotal Principle, let us survey, somewhat pictorially, the excesses which derange and devastate the moral world in the vaunted " good old days"-'not of Adam and Eve-but of Drunkenness. Like the gulf that opened andyawned destruction, in the midst of ancient Rome, in the time of Marcus Curtius, the moral abyss of excess, wide open in the very heart of the world, con tinued enlarging with the flight of every century, more insatiable than the grave; for death, in the ordinary course of nature, has its seasons, but who may dare to hope for the drunkard a timely departure ? Such a gulf, in 4^0 very centre of society, up to the advent of Teetotalism, was the ever spread ing vice of Drunkenness. All, of course, who could conceive an idea of better things, were miser...

CHAPTER XXVI. Clears an Escutchcon.

Hugh was a^kind of protection to the establishment, which consisted only 'of a few old substantial retainers, whom the clergyman (rare blessing!) had in herited with his property from his father and mother. Young Church had a room entirely to himself, half bedroom, half study, at the top of the house, where Mr. Bliss frequently came when he was in town, and gave him useful hints about that portion of his reading (a very small portion, by the way) which did not come ander the superintendenc...

REVIEW TRAVELS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 6 April 1861

4 REV IEW TRAVELS IN AUSTRALIA. BY MRS. MEREDITH. It is as an amusing, rather than as an instructive writer, that we recommend Mrs. Meredith to our readers. She is cheerful, self-reliant, and shrewdly observant. She paints men and manners that come within her range, vivaciously, after this fashion. The scene is the Castlemaine diggings: " Amongst these were two officers of high rank in the British army, who had sold their commissions and embarked the proceeds, together with all their other means, in digging speculations, and were living with their families near the " reef (a reef destined, I fear, to see the wreck of their fortunes.) A young relative too, who had, whilst a governess, saved one or two hundred pounds, was induced to add this, her little all, to the general fund and was then enduring, with patient hope, both privation and fatigue, and earning a small stipend, as morning governess, near Castlemaine, walking daily four miles to and from her duties. Her adventurous friend...

VITELLIUS. HINTH EMPEROR OF SOME. (RRIGNED A. D. 70.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 April 1861

YITELLIUS. HINTH EMPEROR OF SOME. (RBIGNED A. D. 70.) The new emperor, Vitellius. though a brave general, became so slothful and fclttttonous after this eleyalioi:, that he was looked upon, before long, with universal contempt. Even those who are " clothed in pnrple and fine linen, and fare sumptuously every day,'' may yet be very lowminded and vulgar. It is only persons of virtuous and generous spirits who can ever be truly great. Vitellius, in his grand palace, surrounded by slaves and flatterers, was nevertheless a very contemptible character. He be came so greedy, that he contrived to eat two or three dinners a day ; and to save himself the expense of paying for those feasts, he went to the houses of his subjects, breakfasting on the most tx pensive dishes in one house, dining ih another, and supping in a third. At last, every man in Rome hated and despised him ; and (lis army having been defeated bv Vespasian, Vitellius now betrayed the greatest cowardice. He came out of his pa...

CHAPTER IV. The Same Played Out. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 April 1861

CHAPTER IV. The Same Played Out. THE time went on. March Assizes came and passed, and Roger Giles entered upon the punishment awarded him-two years imprisonmeut. Miss St. George stopped on at Daneshury House ; nobody suggested to her that she should l«ave it, and she took ca-e not to suggest it to herself. She behaved wonderfully well, and endeavoured to ingratiate her self with all in it, master, servants, and children. Her exertions never flagged. Her chief consideration seemed to ho that of rendering herself unobtrusively agreeable to Mr. Danesbury ; and, so far as he or any body else saw of her temper, it might be that of an angel. The servants were indulged; the children were petted ; it all went on as smooth as oil. Miss St. George was playing her game. Summer came round, and with it Isabel's birth-day. Some children were invited to dinner, and Mrs. Philip Danes bury was expected to preside ; but she did not come, and they sat down without her. Miss St. George occupying the pl...

Answer to BouU JRimes, in N~o. 134 BEHOLD the widowed mother with tearful eyes, Feareth from her heart her past earthly ties ! Her only son-see him bounding o'er the fields To a distant land for the gold it yields : Silently he contemplates the waves as they play And gallantly glides the bold ship on her way : The Book of books, which he values as dirt, The mother carefully wraps in his shirt, Arid prays that her Son may yet be brought To see the vanity of all earthly sport; One with whom this young man miss'd, Was caltfed to wear the Spotless vest. Wlio, when on earth, spalse ©ft of joy To this the widow's orphan bay E'er he landed she'd gained tho race, Her last prayer was, her steps he would trace; To this his Heavenly Father replied I at the helm of affairs preside Years will roll on-wealth abound, But in this peace could not be found.

THE CiE SAKS. GALBa. SEVENTH EMTEROR OF ROME. (BKGAJT TO RIltiN A. D. <>8.) Several of the einperGrs after Nero survived so short a time, that they were like kings at a theatre, who wear their crowns only for a few hours, and then disappear. Galba, during his very short reign of seven months, acted admirably. At first he refused to be *madev emperor, and retired to a cit}' in Spain, wishing to live out hi* days in ease and quietnens, but a messenger, who followed, rushed into his bed-room during the night, announcing that the people of Rome had elected him emperor Galba seemed glad of this news, bntpf he had known the sad end it would bring him to, he would have grieved at it.v He was very rich, but used often to say that he was not so proud of being wealthy, as of being related to a very wise and pru dent man, called Quintus Catulus, who was reckoned the best citizen at Rome, but who, never attempting to be great or powerful, lived a much happier aud safer life than i...

OTHO. KIGTH EMPEROR OF ROME. (reiqnkd A. d. 69.) OTHO had scarcely time to be called an emperor before he killed himself, after having reigned only three months and five days. He began well by pardon ing Maains Celsus, the most constant friend of Galba, stying that "fidelity deserved every reward," and the new emperor at once forgot all bis own private quarrels. But the army in Germany having proclaimed their own general. Vitellius, emperor, a war ensued, in which the troops of Otho were defeated One of the emperor's followers on this occasion drew his sword, saying, " See what your soldiers are reiady to do for you," and stabbed himself to the heart The troops of Vitellius iisulted those of Otho, saying, they were puffed up with pride merely because they had cut off the head of a poor unarmed old man (mean ing Galba), but added that they Were wretches who durst not look men in the face, or fight a fair and open ba,ttle.
