The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL AN ORATION ON TEETOTALISM [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

Cjjt Australian Jome Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL -4 AN ORATION ON TEETOTALISM - continued. BTJT having touched thus incidentily upon the characters of the disputative champions of Intemperance, for moral assurance and refreshf ment, I would just point at those of the friends and advocates of Teetotalism,-at its Cuthbertsons and McEncroes in this colony, and at the glorious company of unmistakably great and good men, who have marshalled forth its weaponless armies, conquering and to conquer, both in Europe and America. And here I proceed with our subject, I would also take occasion, publicly to acknowledge the high social merit of the old private Invincibles" of its cause in our own Australia. They have proved themselves men indeed. However humble they may be in station, few in the highest places of the land have so much to be justly proud of. No sooner was the banner of Perfect Sobriety unfurled before them, than, like the handful of French grenadiers who swam the Adigo in t...

A raw Irishman, on his first sight of a locomo tive, declared it was the devil, 4 No,' said his companion, ' it's only a steam-boat hunting for watoer.'

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY - A_ THE LLAMA. THE recent introduction of Llamas to this Country will render a description ot them interesting. That they are a species of Camel is evident : a close 'observation of their organization, es pecially in the structure of the head, *f*hd in the wonderful power of preser Nftfi'g water in a second stomach, enab ^fog'them to perform long journeys over ' Joched deserts or mountains.

GOULBURN BAND OF HOFE.-On Wed nesday evening, 24th ult., the monthly meeting of the Band of Hope was held in the Baptist Chapel, and was pretty well attended. Mr. R. Craig spoke at some length. He noticed the long standing vice of intemperance, and said that it was coeval with History, and was now so generally prevalent, that every part of the world was groaning under its baneful influence. Every day records of its victims, in one way or another, presented them selves before us. He referred to the case of murder reported in that day's issue of the local pap...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER XXXI. Tumbling Towers. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page, 209*) CHAPTER XXXI. Tumbling Towers. OF course the sale was postponed. Indeed, it would have been, no doubt, had the colonel lived, as soon as they found he was too ill to be removed. Claude was not at the funeral, and merely wrote a short note to the doctor, making some lame excuse, and giving a wrong address. Maude and her husband would, no doubt, have done violence to their feelings, and have paid the last external tokens of decent respect for the dead (however little they might have felt) but the ruin of the estate rendered it impossible that they should be seen in the neighbourhood. So the good old doctor, Ralph, the nurse, and a very thin sprinkling of former tenants, followed to his grave the lord of Latson Towers, His fall, chiefly the result of high play, first his own, then Claude's, had been rapid but oom píete. And when last we were in the part of the country where he flourished, we found the house had undergone a sin...

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. CHAPTER V. Evils. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. CHAPTER V. Evils. CERTAIN changes, in the course of time, took place at Danesbury House. Few persons could be less alike than the! late Miss St. George and the present Mrs Danesbury : they were as two separate and distinct women, especially in the matter of temper, and Mr. Danesbury could not fail to observe that they were. The servants experienced it to their cost, and Isabel also, to hers. Isabel and her new mamma did not certainly get on well together, and yet, Isabel was a sweet-tempered child, re markably lady-like and graceful. Glisson spoke out openly, and in the hearing of her master : " It was Mrs. Danesbury's fractiousness." Mr. Danesbury knew that his wife was in delicate health, and he believed that must be the reason of her being so cross and irritable ; but, so far as Isabel was concerned, he speedily set about a remedy. A gentlewoman of superior mind and manners was taken into the house as her governess, and he gave the little girl into her compani...

THE NEW YEAR'S DAY DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

THE NEW YEAR'S DAY DINNER. ** You will wonder, my dear girl, that I ask you for New Year's Day instead of Christmas Day, after us making it a rule to spend that day together for so many years ; but, to tell you the truth, dear Caroline, I've a particular reason for it. My husband, as usual, when we spend that day at home, wishes me to invite all our relatives, both on his side and mine, who can be gathered together, which will of eourse include his only brother with his wife, who both rank amongst the most incorrigible of Teetotalers, and have, by the-by, hinted to my dear Charles the propriety of holding our Christmas party without one drop of intoxicating drink ! He-good, kind soul-in the exuberance of his brotherly love admonishes me to banish it alto gether for that day. I wish to please him, but should be ashamed to ask any of my esteemed friends, such as your dear husband and yourself, to join us, not because any of us care for the drink itself, but for the un-Christian-like l...

CHAPTER II. THE LAWYKR AND HIS CLIENT. "'Thoa smiles* !-thy destructive smile ls foul deceit, and false as hell !" ' Jacob Foggleton,' was the name inscribed, on a little old brass plate that ornamented a blistered door of a house in Clibb's Court. The paint had contracted-leaving slimy-looking cracks-like the various intersections of a map, or as if some bewildered snail had lost its way, and crawled all over the door in hopes of regaining it. Some people Avere ill natured enough to hint that the door resembled Lawyer Foggleton-inas much that no way was too slimy or crawling, for Jacob-that his heart and conscience were as withered and seared as his door ; whilst others affirmed-of course on their own suppositions-that the lawyer's reputation was as tarnished as the little brass plate that bore his name. The lawyer was not a favorite with his neighbours-he lived there because j the place suited him, and kept aloof ] from the other inhabitants of the lane, -consequently receiving fe...

'* And what is life 1 a dream w ithin _ a dream I" 1 IN one of the leading thoroughfares of Sydney, there stands-or rather did stand, at the time in which my story commences-an old and dilapidated shop ; one of those old-fashioned gabled tenements, which, though fast becom ing obsolete, are still to be met with in parts of our city. The adjoining houses had long since been taken down, or had fallen themselves beneath the ever decaying stroke of Time ; and new shops, with jauntily-painted fronts, had risen .phonix-like írom their ashes. For a do2ien years, the dwelling had looked as shattered and infirm as it did then ; who the real owner was no one . could tell : most people thought that ' its original possessor had died, and j willed it to some distant relation in j foreign lands, who still remained bliss- ¡ fully ignorant of th...

THE CURLEW SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

THE CURLEW SONG. BY HENRY KENDALL. The viewless blast, flies moaning past, Away to the forest trees ;   Where giant pines, and leafless vines Bend 'neath the wandering breeze. From ferny streams, unearthly screams Are heard in the midnight blue ; As afar they roam, to the Shepherd' s home--   The shrieks of the wild Curlew ! As afar they roam, To the Shepherd's home-- The shrieks of the wild Curlew ! The mists are curled o'er a dark-faced World, And the shadows sleep around, Where the clear lagoon reflects the moon In her hazy glory crowned ; While dingoes howl, and wake the growl Of the watchdog brave and true ; Whose loud rough bark shoots up in the dark, With the song of the lone Curlew ! Whose loud rough bark Shoots up in the dark, With the song of the lone Curlew ! Near herby banks the dark green ranks Of the rushes stoop to drink And the ripples chime, in a measur'd time, On the smooth and mossy brink,   As wind-breaths sigh, and pass and...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page, 209*) CHAPTER XXXIII. The Old London Church. THAT was a memorable day, in the great house at Hackney, in more re spects than one,-the day when Hugh was entered of the Middle Temple. Rath had scarcely known what trouble meant since she had become housekeeper to the returned medical missionary. The servants had ever treated her with great respect, for she had always treated them with kindness and consideration. She remembered other days. And gratitude would have taught her to govern gently, if her own good sense had not. Then, Mr. Bliss himself had made her position ; in the house as easy as it was honourable,; And now that he lived altogether at home, and depended upon Ruth's manage ment of the household for more than ; half his comfort he had discovered, every day, how very safely he could depend on it, and how little he was ever disap pointed. j Marmaduke Bliss was not past the i 0 ' aprime of life.

CP Terry, to whose pencil we art Indebted for the sketches which illustrate this article. . The building, which bears marks of age in its appearance, is delightfully situated about a mile from the township, standing on an elevation; ifck commands an extensive view, and is undoubtedly most healthfully placed.' Entering the somewhat dismal gateway, which forms the front, we were introduced to Mr. Statham, the Superintendant, who, with tke utmost courtsey, at once conducted us to the interior. Passing through a second gateway we entered a spacious courtyard, surrounded on all sides by high walls. The sun was shining pleasantly upon it, and upon its occupants, who consisted of from eighty to one hundred men, all attired in the costume of the Asylum. In a moment we were surrounded-handB grasped out own in the warmest friendship, and we were...
