LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 June 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. (Continued from page, 227.) INTEMPERANCE is, indeed, as a very plague spot iu the metropolis. It is heard of in mansions--it is seen in dens -it staggers through the streets, larking in the alleys and the dark corners-it cries aloud from the poiice courts-it tills the prisons and the hospitals-and it taints with its black infection our homes and hearths. It is thecmse of England's poor. Glisson sa'w enough of it that night, and _>f the facilities afforded for us indulgence. How many of ^at unhappy crowd might have been arrested in their downward coarse : nay, n&ver have entered upon it, but for the terrible temptations ttiur-^t upon them every hour, and at ev«a*y step, by these meretricious liquor shops! Numbers of them were respectable once, hard working, and con.entbd, until the stealthy vice insinuated itself upon them. Not ali at once did it come, in its full baleful aspec;; but gradually and imperceptibly ; moderation grew to deep drinking, deep d...

TO MY INFANT DAUGHTER "ADA." Aged Three Years. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 June 1861

TO MY INFANT DAUGHTER " ADA." Aged Three Years. CHILD of my heart, my loved one, I view thy beauties shine, My work on earth is nearly done, Yet still I feel thou'rt mine. My treasur'd child, my beautiful, With front of guileless mein And eyes like stars-(my heart is full, From wrongs I've felt and seen.) But thou, sweet child, so young in years, Dost wonder when i sigh (Ah, could I weep-my deep-drawn tears Are still and sunk mine eye,} On thee I gaz'd, as thou lay calm In sleep's refreshing rest, Yet when I sleep I close that balm That fills thy placid breast. This very morn I stood beside The couch whereon you lay So still, so calm-Oh! I must hide The " grief that wears away I" And wilt^thou weep thy father's death When down'd in sable dress When I'm laid low!-no flatt'ring breath No blessing, nor caress! Sweet Ada, thy infantive kisa Is all I crave from thee, A brighter world, more fair than this I hasten to-I'm free ! And soon I'll die :-They cannot wane Thy feelings, child, ast...

A RHYME FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 June 1861

RHYME FOR CHILDREN, BY CHARLES HARPUR. VESPRR !-Evening's lovely star, How I wonder what you are I Hanging in the mellow sky Like a golden lamp on high ! Though no stranger, yet so far, How I wonder what you are ! Clouds may hide yon for a -while, Yet, beyond them, still you smile. Ever quenchless, ever there, Beaming through the upper air! Are you, say, mi isle of light In the shoreless Infinite, Homing happy creatures, who Cain or sorfow never knew ? Live there in your crystal sphere Fairer things than any here Things that breathing heaven's breath Pure and perfect, knjw not death? What if you be Paradise, Showing in those evening skies Where the good who here have troi, Once more Spirits, sit with God? But, whether you be such or no, Not less gratefully you glow, Hanging in the mellow sk^ Like a golden lamp on high Glowing still heaven's fairest star, While I wonder what youiare I

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 June 1861

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. I As the end of another Quarter approaches, we find I many of our COUNTRY SUBSCRIBERS still greatly in: arrear with their subscriptions. We have made many applications for payment, which have met with NO notice whatever. We now beg to inform those parties who are indebted to us for a year's subscription, and upwards, that in a future number of our Journal, we shall pumish a1' list of their names and residences, in justice to ourselves, and to those who HAVE been liberal towards us. It is simply common honesty that ype ask for 3-if any debtors do not want our paper, they might, at least, 'pay for what they have regularly received, and then resign. Knowing that many country residents acquire careless habits in payments, although with the best ultimate intentions, we do not like to strike off any names from our books, as by so doing we cut away some of ,our best wishers^ This appeal is now made thus prominently as a last hope, that a prompt remittance from our negle...

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. CHAPTER VI. Training. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 June 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. (Continued from page, 258.) CHAPTER VI. Training. IT was a fair scene. The gqlden gleam of summer shone upon the land, the luxuriant corn already gave token of a plentiful harvest, the grateful scent of the new-mown hay told that the grass "Was cut, and the cattle were lazily stretched beside the gUtering pools. Especially peaceful seemed the sliil air, the calm landscape, as tbese fair country scenes do seem, on the Day of Rest. Walking home from morning service, was a group, amidst other groups.

Long hath He sought admission to thine heart, He's thy best friend, and seeks an interview ; Admit at once, lest He should quick depart, And worse ensue. How sad, if He should say, ' I sought thee once, And thou didst me refuse ; departJye hence. A table in the wilderness He'll spread, To meet thy wants.-and not with homely cheer, But food angelic,-the true heav'nly bread, Why starve ye here. He from the desert sands, can raise Dainties so choice, as to set forth His praise. And wine, to cheer-not made from earthly fruits And richer far, than e'er famed Eschol grew; Paddington, Gather'd from vines which Zion only suits, Reserv'd for you. Which cheers the heart,^-invigorates the soul, Gives peace and gladness...

HOW A MINISTER WAS TREATED BY HIS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 June 1861

I HOW A MINISTER WAS TREATED 1 BY HIS WIFE. WE extract the following from a work by the Rev, John Kennedy, of Dingwall, entitled " The Days of the Fathers in Ross shire." Speaking of Mr. Fraser of Alness, the author says-"A oold, unfeeling, bold, undeeding, worldly Woman' was his wife. Never did hep godly husband sit down to a comfortable meal in bis own house, and often would he have fainted from sheer want of need ful sustenance but for the considerate kindness of some of his parishioners. She was too insensate to try to hide her treatment of him, and well was it for him on one account, that she was. His friends thus knew ot his ill-treatment, and were moved to do what they could for his comfort. A godly acquaintance arranged with him to leave a supply of food in a certain place, beside bis usual walk* of which he might avail himself when starved at home. Jijven light and fire in his study were denied to him on the long, cold winter evenings; and as hjs study was his only place of...

DEATH OF CAPTAIN BOYD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 June 1861

DEATH OF CAPTAIN BOYD. A very melancholy catastrophe occur ed at Kingstown Ireland at noon, on the 9th February. The following particulars relative to the .above catastrophe are from a corres pondent of the Freeman's Journal at Kingstown :-" A strong gale blew all Friday night (February 8) from the N. E., changing to N. W. The schooner Clyde was driven by the violence, of the storm from her position on the back of the east pier into the harbor, and thrown with violence against the rocks between the Iri^h Yacht Club-house and the Coal quay. She is now a perfect wreck. The brig Wanderer, bound from Whitehaven to Dublin, with a cargo of coais, about 300 tons burthen, on coming into harbor for shelter ran against the pier, near the Revenue stores, and sank ; she is rapidly going to pieces. Altogether there are about fourteen vessels wrecked or other wise disabled. The whole of tlie south pide ot the harbor is lined wi';h the debris of the vessels gone ashore. It is too true about the fa...

CHAPTER XXXVII. Play. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 June 1861

CHAPTER XXXYII, Play. How strange it is, reader, to watch the pendulum of benevolence in different epochs of English, and especially of London life. Pull it up to the loft-hand side, further than it ought to go, in the days of the Tudovs and the Stuarts , let the vices and the miseiies of the poor be left to take their chances and murder their victims, while nobles, and clergy', and law-makers care for none but themselves. And then, up will spring the pendulum, j in these happier limes, to the right side, I and we hear of little but the reform, the instruction, the conversion, of the " work ing classes." i Mark, we say. the right side-right in tho best strose. For if we needed to i j-have monopoly of Benevolence for any class, let us have it fcr the larger ones. { But need we this "monopoly ? And may not this ba the very day, good reader, in which-without talking a jot less about the vices of the poor, or the ungodliness of the poor-we might; reasonably think oftener on the vices of...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE". (Continued from page 254.,) CHAPTER XXXV. Scum. m j i . THE theatres were all closed, and liacl been for two hours or more. There was no light along the Strand but that of the street-lamp.s, save, per haps, here and there, where a night coffee-shop s^nt a glimmer through a lettered blind-a glimmer which a dazzling rain made duller. YoU could hear the policeman's tread long before you saw him ; and when you did see him, 3'our better way was to walk right boldly past, or he would turn his bull's-efe on you in a moment. London at two o'clock in the morning ! Surely it would have been sombre and silent enough for hiin who wished, for the "lodge in some vast wilderness some boundless contiguity of shade." Looty up one of these side streets. Here is no policeman here. All is silent as the grave-in front, that is to say. ^ Plenty is going on at the back of two or three of these side street houses.

CHAPTER XXXVI. Advertises an Investment. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 June 1861

CHAPTER- XXXYI. Advertises an Investment. CLAUDE BLANCE knew better than to go 1 tack at once to Lis lodgings with the j few shillings he brought away, the gift -of the Magdalens in the court. They would not have paid a fiftieth part of his debt, and would have only quickened the appetite of his hungry landlord for the impossible balance. At least, this was Claude's reflection. He was very likely wrong; for one of the commonest and most tatal errors ol' poverty, especially of criminal or ex travagant poverty, is to pay nothing, because you cannot pay all. However, Claude's plan was to turn away from the chief thoroughfares, and swallow a cup of coffee and eat a slice of bread-and-butter at one of those openair extempore breakfast tables, where, depend on it, you often get better served than in many a prouder establishment nuder cover; and then ho thought he would try, by the old means, to make the little remained sufficiently more to be able to go to what he called his home.

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. AN ORATION ON TEETOTALISM—concluded. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 June 1861

Australian |)ome Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL^ A an ORATION ON TE ETOTALISM-concluded. ? I WILL conclude by addressing a few remarks to those who move in ^hat are called the upper circle of society. Amongst those who esteem thomselves, par excellence, respectable, the silly notion seems but two preva ^ lent,^liat there is a vulgarity in the goodness of Teetotalism-for few amongst them not interested cither in the importation or manufacture of stimulants, dispute its beneficial public tendency-that there is a vulgarity in its goodness, which is incompatible with the exclusiveness of a fashionable, or would-be fashionable, person or family. To this I can only reply: that if the fitness and propriety of any thing are to be tested by its plasticity to the conventions of what is termed high life, alas for Good ! for it has never been much in harmony with the vanities of fashion, nor heartily esteemed by the exclusives of the world. Yet the doers of good are the aristocracy of heav...

WOON OON A. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY. BY F. S-. WILSON. CPAPTETL III. PA6T HOPE-PAST CURE. " Like twilight imaged on a bank of snow' The smile that waneth o'er thy marble cheek." IT is a sad, solemn task to sit beside the couch of death, watching lest the trembling spark should quit its tene ment of clay, and, without warning, wing its way to ' the land where all things are forgotten,'-to look on those we love, and se&the terrible inroads disease is silently making-to feel that all our cares areunavailing-that though the victim lingers beneath the stroke, the shaft of Death has sped surely alas ! too surely, to its mark. Perhaps these were the thoughts that occupied the mind of Gowland Gray, as he stood beside the couch of his patient, but suffering daughter : gazing On her wasted features as she lay in an uneasy slumber,, the hetic flush on the centre of each cheek, and the heavy difficult breathing, proclaiming by what uncertain tenure the soul occupied its present habitation. ...

THE WILD KANGAROO.   BY HENRY KENDALL. The rainclouds have gone to the Deep The east like a furnace doth glow; And the Day-spring is flooding the steep, And sheening the landscape below. Oh! ye who are gifted with souls That delight in the music of birds, Come forth where the scatter'd mist rolls, And listen to eloquent words ! - Oh ! ye who are fond of the sport, And would travel yon wilderness through, Gather-each to his place-for a life- stirring chase In the wake of the wild Kangaroo ! Gather - each to his place - For a life-stirring chase In the wake of the wild Kangaroo ! Beyond the wide rents of the fog, The trees are illumin'd with gold ; And the bark of the Shepherd's brave dog Shoots away from the sheltering fold ! Down the depths of yon rock-border'd glade A torrent goes foaming along ; While the blind owls retire into shade, And the " echu"* beginneth its song By the side of that yawning abyss, Where the vapours are hurrying to, We will merrily pass, looking...
