The Australian Home Companion. AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL AN ORANTION ON TEETOTALISM—continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 April 1861

Cj)f Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL AN O K ATION ON TEETOTALISM - continued. BUT such is no longer the case. The drunkard is no longer conven tionally shut out from every path of life, save the very lowest; and consequently, from every social means of reformation. The Angel of Teetotalism has opened wide the gates of mercy. Its societies are now so many cities of refuge from the malignant influences, which beset his repented steps. As a member of almost any one of these, he may not only regain all he has lost, but become even better than he ever otherwise could have been, though he had never sold himself to the slavery of excess; for there benevolence and wisdom, religion and morality, shall become his associates; not to redeem only, but to purify and exalt him and finally, to re-start him in life, with the talismanic symbol of member ship, the stronger for past weakness, and the more resolute for goad from the bitter experience of evil. No matter how vile a dru...

REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 April 1861

REVIEW. » , ... " The Bushrangers: illustrating the early days of Van Diemen's Land. By James Bonwick." The title of this book is one which, in the Australian colonies, has often struck dread into the heart of the outlying settler or the belated traveller. Many tales of the wild deeds of these lawless desperadoes yet linger amongst us ; and he must be phlegmatic indeed whose pulse does not beat higher at their recital. At present, however, our purpose is not so mi|ch With the outlaws of this colony as wilji those of the island colony of Tasmania. Passing over some entertaining chap ters grotesquely headed 44 Female Bolters," " the Early Escapes," the *' Cattle Stealers," we take a few ex tracts personal to the bushrangers: referring our readers to the work itself for detailed particulars. First on the black catalogue is Michael Howe. He was the captain of a powerful gang, We read, " Howe was now the captain of the gang. In his marauding expeditions he was attended by a faithful nati...

EVIL CONSEQUENCES OF SMOKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 April 1861

EVIL CONSEQUENCES OF SMOKING. « The wide spread habit of smoking has not yet had due medical attention paid to it and its consequences. It is only by twor or three years' observation that Dr. Laycock has become fully aware of the great changes produced in the system by the abuse of tobacco, and of the varied and obscure forms of diseases to which, especially, excessive smoking gave origin. He proceeded to state some of them as they are to be met with in the pharyngeal membrane* the stomach, the lungs, the heart, the brain :and the nervous system. The tobacco consumed by habitual smo kers varies from an ounce to twelve ounces per week; the usual quantity from two to three ounces Inveterate cigar smokers will consume from four to five dozen per week. The first morbid result is an inflammatory condition of the mueus membrane, of the lips and tongue, then the tonsils and larynx suffer, the mucus membrane becoming dry and congested. If the thorax be examined well, it will be found slight...

WASHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 April 1861

WASHING. THE most important department, of domestic economy naturally includes the washhouse, into which philosophy has found its way for the application of marijy useful principles, and much Useful prac~ tice. When water is hard» and will not readily unite with soap,' it will always be proper to boil it before use : which# will be found sufficiently efficacious, If the hardness depends solely upon the impregnation of lime, in the form of what modern chemistry designates as a subcarbonic. The philosophical reason for this Is, that the lithe, by some secret process of nature, is united to a portion of carbonic acid, which causes it to be suspended in the water; bat, in the process of boiling, the carbonic acid unites with the acquired caloric, and is carried off with it into the atmosphere. Even exposure to the atmosphere will produce this effect in a great degree upon spring water so impregnated, leav ing it much fitter for lavatory purposes. In both cases the water ought to be care...

CHAPTER XXVIII. Nurses the Sick. " Ate. aye, ring away, old boy, it'll do ye good : patience is a virtue." And all the household laughed at the easy good humour of the colonel's valet as the bad room bell rang for the third time that evening unanswered. Ralph, thoroughly knocked up with day ana night work for so longf, tod been obliged to take to bed on his.own account, and could hardly manage to crawl, at long intervals, from his room, which was allowed to adjoin his master's, to see how he was going on-his offiga being tilled, at, least nominally, by tll8 above-named gentleman. On this occasion Ralph Grange wag worse than usual; and the faithful, ilj» used old servant lay listening to the un heeded bells in a perfect agony. " It's our turn now," said one of th9 menials, as he stretched his finely-turned calves before the fire, and smoothed-down the plush, while the bell was ringing ft fourth time as if the wires were tearing all before them.

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. " WHAT an exceedingly fine man Mr. Danesbury is," exclaimed Mrs. Serle; " I should call him one of nature's true nobility. The child, Arthur, will be like him." " And .what a handsome house," re turned Miss. St, George. " Everything so well appointed and comfortable." " Ay, plenty of wealth here, Eliza. If you can succeed in establishing a firm footing, you will be fortunate." Mrs. Philip Danesbury, meanwhile, ?was looking about for Arthur, who had disappeared. She found him in the little room where Mrs Danesbury used to assemble her children for the ten minutes after breakfast in the morning, to read to thgm their Bible stories and to talk of heaven. It was a duty she never omitted, and the children had learnt to love it. Arthur was stretched across the low sofa where his mamma used to sit, crying as if his heart would break. Mrs Philip Danesbury c?o^ed the door, sat down, and drew him to her. " My darling, don't sob so: be com forted.'' " Aunt Philip, I shall n...

KEMINISCENCES OF BYGONE DAYS. 4 It is not ntw as it has been of yore, Turn wheresoe'er I may Byjtoht or day, The things ^Ruch i have seen I now can see no more. - WORDSWORTH, THERE is a spot endear'd to me, Engraven'd deep on memory : The best belov'd on face of earth, That place is where I had my birth ; There my first joyous feelings beain'd, My childish heart with pleasure gleam'd; ' There my first sorrows were beguil'd, Forgotten, when a mother smiled. 'Twas she first taught my lips to praise The glorious Author of my days; And afcher knees I oft have stood, "With cla&ped hands in prayer to God Who sw^ptly smiled with suppress'd joy To hear the lispings of her boy.

TRIP TO NEWCASTLE-ON-TYNE. " I TELL you what; I tliink I will go and spend a few weeks at Newcastle," said a young man as he sat staring into the fire, fancying that meanwhile he saw, in the varied shapes of the pieces of coal, his portly uncle giving him a hearty welcome to tke Dairy House of Seatan Delavel Hall. Now, for the gratification of those of my readers who wish to know everything about everybody, I will intro duce this young man. Look at him, as he sits before the fire superintending the conking of his own beefsteak-kindly provided for him by friends who loved him much. The time of the day is eleven o'clock a.m.-rather an unusual time for beefsteak and porter -but it discloses to ua something about this young man that we wish you to know. He is recovering from a severe illness, brought on by confinement in a London printing office ; his age is about twenty-one ; complexion sallow ; he has a strongly built frame, but now greatly weakened by suffering; of an excitable tempe...

AN EDUCATIONAL COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 20 April 1861

AN EDUCATIONAL C THE educational scheme or cause I established by Mr. Wopsle's great aunt j may be resolved into the following synopsis. The pupils ate apples and put straw up one another's backs, until Mr. Wopsle's great-aunt collected, her ener gies, and made an in discriminative totter at them with a birch rod. After receiv ing the charge with every mark of derision, the pupils formed in line and buzzingly passed a ragged book from hand to hand. The book had an alphabet fci it, some figures' and tables, and a little spelling-that is to say, it had opce. As soon as this volume began to circulate. Mr. Wopsle's great aunt fell into a state of eoma, arising either from sleep or a rheumatic paroxism. The pupils then entered among themselves upon a competitive examination on the subject of boots, with the view of ascer taining who could tread the hardest upon whose toes. This mental exercise lasted until Biddy made a rush at them and distributed three defaced Bibles (shaped as if they ...

HOOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 May 1861

HOOPS. HOOPS on barrels, kegs, and pails, Hoops on boxes, tabs, and bales, Are articles indispensible But hoops as they puff out woman,s dress, Making' the women seem so much less, Are thmge most indefensible. Hoops, when their sturdy clasp confines In brown old casks the richest wines. Are objects of admiration But hoops as part of women's baggage, Are like the whoops of a painted garage A Vile abomination. Hoops make useful, pretty toys For active little girls and boys, But hoops on women gentle Are things to sneer at and to scoff. And like the whoop of a whooping-cough. Neither useful nor ornamental. For while dear woman bones her skirts, And with a skeleton flaunts andfiirts, She has so nuch to carry, Han finds it ha»d with her to talk, And harder still to sit or walk, Bat holiest of ett to marry. 198 For when a smitten wretch has seen, Among the lost in crinoline, The one his heart holds dearer, Oh! what a chill to ardent passion. To feel that through this hollow fashion He nev...

THE HONEY BIRD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 May 1861

THE HONEY BIRD.* BY CHARLES HABPUB. WHERBVBH in some wildwood bower There blooms a honey-yielding -flower. There too dweHs a Bird, to sop Out of its delicious cup, And sing by times, lest it should be Q'erfed intosatiety: So, wherever Loveliness Dwells retired,-dwells to bless, Not daeale ; there some destined Spirit, Feeding on its hicious merit, Can at peace with Passion be Only through sweet f oetry. * The native bird thus called, or, more com* monly, the honeysucker, is quite a curiosity in natural history. Its bill is a mere tube, about as large in girth as a darning needle, and nearly ae long. It is, in fact, nearly equal in length to all the reBt of the bird's body, the tail . as in the case of #U fowls with very Ion? bills) being .short and stumpy, like that of the Kingfisher. In this tube there is a sort of natural pump-sucfcer, and the bird is thus enabled to come at the honey which is contained in the deep cups of the mountain bngle and bell flowers. Hence, the habitat of...
