The Australian Some Companion, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 June 1861

C(j£ ^ustialiari Dome Conipnioii, IN our last number we adverted, rather pointedly, to the precarious condition of the Australian Home Companion j or rather to the uncertain .tenure by which it held its footing, when, nominally supported by a class, who actually clung to it--as ivy clings to a withered tree-apparently increasing its importance, at the same time rather retarding, than promot ing its growth. We alluded to those who have 'forgotten' to forward their subscriptions --some for their quarters'-some for their year*/-copies. We would readily believe that the evil has been ' wrought by want of thought f the more so, as many have forwarded their back payments, sine* reading our expostulation. And who shall say that an expostulation was not needed, when we place before them the fact of those apparently insig nificant hal for owns, amounting to no less than Four Hundred and Twenty two pounds! (£422.) We believe,-and we should be sorry to alter our opinion,-that the Journal is a ...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER XXXIIX. Changes to Earnest. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 June 1861

THE UP AND DOWN TRAIN8 OF LIFE. (Continued from page 254.) CHAPTER XXXIIX. Changes to Earnest. On the next night, when Claude entered the billardroom at an early hoar, the time fixed, no one was there. But, early as it was, it would have bqen evident to any, even a cursory, observer, how at least a part of his two sovereigns had been laid out. He flung himself on the sofa, ani was goon in a snoring sleep, dreaming, per haps (who knows?), that he is reading " Pilgrim's Progres," away in Wilt shire, with Mrs. Glyde, and that the two girls in Court, dressed in white are Frudence and Charity, at the gate of the House Beautiful t When Latson awoke, he started up at observing that Swillman was loung ing on an opposite sofa. He could scarcely suppose that any consideration for hi.n, or' any regard to good manners, had induced such a man to let him sleep on there, instead of keeping his appointment. But he gave himself 110 time for reflec tions or questions, and strode across the room; and,...

AUNT RACHEL had just rang for the tea-things to be taken away, and carried her knitting to the side-table at the window, when George ran over to the sofa where his unclo was sitting with spectacles on his nose, busily turning over the leaves of a volume which he had talcen down from the book case. " Now, dear uncle, now for your stories about Napoleon.'' " Well, George, I have just been turn ing up a picture of a statue of Nopoleon» erected in his honour at the Place Ven dome, in Paris. There he is, you see, on the top of a lofty pillar of loronzB, made from cannon which he had taken from nations whom he had conquered. All round the sides of it, are sculptured the various battles which he fought. Had the pillar been made of *knlls and cross-bones, however, it would have come nearer the truth !''

CHAPTEll XXXIX. Thorns among Roses* Two days before the arrest of Latson atthe gamblinghouse in Leicester-square, there was mournihg and lamentation in the old rectory at Sharstone. The family were all seated round the father's library table, and he was play ing with the younger children one of their favourite games. . A gentleman was announced as wait, ing to see Mr. Montgomery in the diuing-room. " I have taken the liberty," said the stranger, " of coming down, in some haste,from London, to ask a question of you about a little matter of business, though I'm exceedingly sorry to disturb you at so late an hour ot the day." Mr. Montgomery bowed. " I have had lately a little #ftnsaction with A gentleman in town, who lias given me a bill bearing your name, and from circumstances that have come to my knowledge, I thought I should be more ! satisfied if I succeeded in getting a per sonal interview with the acceptor."

SOMETHING TO LOVE! Ballad, by F. S. Wilson. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 June 1861

SOMETHING TO LOVE! I Ballad, by F. & Wilson. Something to love !-like the moon on the waters, Those words of affection flash deep on the soul; And the heart sinks to rest, in the joy of contentment, Like a torrent subsiding on reaching its goal ! But a heart void of love, is ft garden weed-garnish'd, Where tangled vines cluster, in funeral pomp A fading star, lit with a transient glory, Like false fires that flit o'er a desolate swamp ! Oh 1 give us but something to banish dejection To lighten the darkness which hovers above : To draw from our souls the pure smile of affection Some one to care for us-something to love! Nothing to love!-like the morning wind stealing O'er war-shattered towers, with its frolicsome laugh . All hush'd into sadness, as-nervously feeling It misses the flag that once fondled the staff! Nothing to cherish, till all have evanish'd All that is beautiful-all that is fair : And the cells of the .heart are but treasureless caverns, ^ That echo the hollow...

Great Princess and Kaisers may reign over fools, Over-awe them, with pcmp, and make them their tools, I'm sure they're unenvied by me ; In ruinous chamber all fusty with damp, In shabby old doublet, I'll write by my lamp For a king of the future I'll be, For a king of the future I'll be, For a king For a king For a king of the future I'll be Fine Lords and fine Ladies avoid rae with care ; Old friends grown successful, pass by with a stare, Poor things they are pitied by me; Their genius I know is their purse and their clothes, The cringing and scraping an honest man loaths; But a king of the future I'll be. Rogues saunter along, who for titles or gold "Would stifle their conscience whlist freedom is sold ; They scowl at, but dare not strike me; They are cowed by my eye, they thought me a slave, Though poor, they thirk I'll turn coward or knave; No, a king of the future I'll be. 0 pitiful grandeur of humb...

WOON 0 ONA. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY. BY F. S. WILSON, On ascending the stairs JoTo found the office-door slightly open, and the room tenantless. Feeling very drowsy after his unusually abundant meal, he pushed open the door of an old cheffonier, that served to contain the lawyer's unused law-documents, and curling himself up as comfortably as the circumscribed imits of the place would allow, he was soon asleep. How long lie remained wrapped in slumber is hard to say,5, but be was awakened by the sound of voices in loud contention, and screwing ^his bociy so as to get a glimpse of the dispu tants, through a chink in the piece of furniture that concealed him, he found them to be Foggleton, and Gray the merchant. * I tell you,'' said the latter, " I have decided onee for all-for years this secret has rested like a mill stone on my heart -I have wasted wealth in order to pur chase your silence; but the last payment has been made, that you will ever reeeive from me, come what will/' A change...

It was a busy scene-many of the bullock-drivers were yoking on their sleek well-fed cattle, preparatory to a start for home, while ono or two teams still stood in the square, their contents unsold ; the drivers cracked their whips^ the dogs frisked about in high glee, and the bullocks trudged sturdily alorg, with wagging heads and half-elosed eyes, keeping time to the music of the bells that jingled behind the empty drays£ and no doubt thinking of thep...

THE WINTRY WINDS. [Air-"The Vicar of Bray."] THE wintry winds rush howling past, And whistla through the moorland; The tall oaks answer to the storm, Like billows on the foreland; The windows shake, the chimney groans, So draw your chairs together; File up the coal, and fill the bowl, And let's defy the weather. There's storm without, but love within, And friendship's pure embraces ; We'll make amends for winter cold By sunshine of our faces. Pile up the firel we'll dance and sing; Bnt yet, amid our gladness, We'll not forget the fate of those Who pine in want and sadness : The shivering wanderers in the streets Who tramp the homeless city, And sailors shipwreck'd far at sea With none to aid or pity. May beav'n protect them, one and all 1 And sweeten our embraces, Both by the raindrops of our hearts And sunshine of our faces!

The Australian Home Companion, THE NATIONAL MUSIC OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 July 1861

Cjje Australian Home Companloii, THE NATIONAL MUSIC OF ENGLAND. It has been frequently affirmed of late years, that the English, whatever they may be at present, were formerly not a musical people. It has been loudly asserted by many, who claim to be the exponents, if not the leaders, of public opinion, that we have not, and never had, any National Music. " The music, <jf England 1'' said the Emperor Napoleon to a lady at St. Helena, "it is execrablel They have only one good melody." And he named a Scotch air, u Ye banks and braes of bonnie Doon," as the sole example of English music which he considered endurable. But all this is a misconception. England has as much music as her neighbours-perhaps more. English music is peculiar: it is not simply a music of imitation, but of originality ; racy, and of the soil. There was a time when the English was pre-eminently a musical people, when singing was considered a necessary part of the education of a gentleman, -when music was...

THE WANDERER'S GRAVE! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 July 1861

THE WANDERER'S GRAVE! by A. M'NEIIL. AWAY in the forest's dull funeral shade ' Neath a tall and majestic old tree, The wanderer's grave was silently made Where grasses were waving in glee. Now the mistletoe creeps o'er the desolate mound And decks it with evergreen leaves While it clings to the tree-its gnarl'd branches around Ajid a fanciful garland it weaves ! No sound strikes the ear, near his last resting place Save the hum of the murmuring stream, As it dashes along in a wild, rcckless race, Or glides-like an undisturb'd dream. And the whispering breezes, as softly they creep 4 Mongst the branches so lusty and brave, That-moisten'd with dews from the skies nightly ween. Gentle tears o'er ihe leaf-shrouded grave. When the Sim has gone dawn-like a king to his rest And Night in supremacy reigns When the gaudy.plumed parrot has fled to its nest, And the kangaroo leaveth the plains The timid-eyed possum comes forth with the moon, The dingo deserts his lone cave, While the night-owl ...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. CHAPTER XL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 July 1861

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from page 254.) CHAPTER XL. Shows that blood is thicker than "water. "LAreoNl Latson! What'a this?" aaid Hugh Church, as he hurried over the police-report in the morning paper the day after Claud's committal. " For gery 1 committed for trial 1 It isn't a common name." . Hugh's practice lay in a very different direction from the plea of the crown. Neither his partner nor himself had ever had anything to do with criminal law. , This is a strange feature in the practice of the law, but a universal one. Hundreds of the country's best lawyers, thousands, would rather have been con. eerned all their Jives in the settlement of conveyances, where a few yards of dirt were all the matter in dispute, than be suspected of once interfering with the conviction or acquittal of a fellow fcreatnre on trial for his life. Nothing we can say, probably, 'will *rmke any difference. Criminal law is voted the lowest kind of law, " and there's an end." But it has a...

GLEANINGS. THE EYES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 July 1861

GLEANINGS. THE EYES. AN eye oun threaten like the loaded gun, or cat; insult like hissing or kick ing : or in its altered mood, b}7 beams of kindness can make the heart dance with joy. The eye obeys exactly the action of the mind. When a thought strikes up, the vision is fixed, and re mains looking at a distance; in ennumer ating names of persons or countries-as France, Spain, Britain, or Germany-? the eye winks at each new name. There is an honesty in the eye which the mouth does not participate in. "The Artist,*' as Michael Au<?«lo said, " must have his measure rn his eyes." Eyes are bold as lions-bold, running, leaping. They speak all languages; they need no encylopedia to aid in the interpretation of their language ; they respect neither rank nor fortune, virtue, nor sex, but they go through in a moment of time. You can read in the s of jour com panion, while you talk with him, whether your argument hits, though his tongue will not confess it. There is a look by which...

CHAPTER II. "What I was, and what I am. I FIRST saw tho light of day in a garden not twenty miles from the great modern Babylon. Breaking up through the moist earth under the genial in fluence of an April sun, I peeped out in the middle of an innumerable number of my brethren, who like myself had just struggled into existence-watered by the spring showers, and warmed by the spring sun. I rapidly passed through 1 the various stages of my babyhood, was transplanted into a more roomy bed, and, having once narrowly escaped the ravages of a voracious slug, and once been happily rescued from the jaws of a greedy, half-starved goat, who had sur reptitiously broken into the enclosure, I at last arrived at a full blown maturity, and stood out in fancied society, a British grown cabbage; a security which, however, was but of a very short dura tion, for the sharp edge of a knife soon aroused me from my sleepy abstraction, and a shrill screechy voice exclaiming in the high treble of childhood, ...

COLONIAL NEWS. LAMBING FLAT.-Nothing new of im portance from Lambing Flat. Every thing seems quiet there. The police having all left, a vigilance committee li||s been established for the preservation Or order; and they seem to have preserved order pretty effectually, probably because many of the greatest rascals-in fear of that punishment which they have so Well earned-have left. But the ap parent calm may be very deceptive. It is reported that the diggers are arming and drilling, and have expressed a decided intention to resist any and every attempt to apprehend such rf the leaders of the late brutal assault upon the Chinese as remain among them. If so, there must be a collision, for surely the authorities will not allow the chief ruffians to escape with impunity.
