OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
OUR MESSAGE. THOUGH we felt it would be undeserved, yet we had prepared ourselves for a slight expression of opinion in the shape of " grumbling/' at the alteration of the subscription to the JOURNAL; but, with one or two isolated instances, only good feeling and encouragement have met us on every hand. We cannot help thanking our friends for the confidence they repose in us. Though several trifling alterations have been made, our circulation is as great as before, with every prospect of it extending. We have considered that one great obstacle to our progress has been the want of confidence the public have had in the probability of the JOURNAL continuing in existence. Subscribers have been afraid to recommend it to their friends for fear they should be compromised by so doing, feeling as they did, and that without much reasoning, that while it was not in a paying condition, it was not safe; and we know, that the moment we can report that it is remunerative, then its advancement will...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
&lt;\jfN our last number we attempted to show that the person who believes in a n}} colonial literature is not on that account alone to be condemned as hopelessly insane. Now we wish to carry the argument a little further, and boldly ask, why should we not have in this and the sister colonies a powerful literary expression of colonial thought and feeling ? The answer to that question is generally twofold. First, it is asserted that our colonial daily and weekly press sufficiently represent our local necessities; and secondly, that we have in European literature an abundant supply of all our wants in the higher departments of thinking. The force of these answers to a very great extent we are ready to admit, but think they do not (to put the matter on the lowest ground) a priori, stop further discussion on the claims of native mental industry. We suppose our opponents will not assert that newspaper literature, however able, is all that is necessary for any man or any number of...
The Dismal Swamp. (A true Story.) PART II. SHOWING HOW, AND WHEN THE SWAMP CAME INTO EXISTENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
Cjw gismal Stamp. (.A true Story.) BY THE REV. GEORGE MACKIE, KIAMA. PART II. SHOWING HOW, AND WHEN THE SWAMP CAME INTO EXISTENCE. LONG ago-how long, my young frien'ds will easily discover-we are informed that this world was in a state of confusion. There was neither land nor water, and yet there was both. They were so mixed up together that neither form nor beauty could be discovered anywhere. There were no mountains, no hills, no valleys, no waving forests, and no verdant plains. The sea was nowhere, and yet it was everywhere. Sun, nor moon, nor stars, had yet begun to run rejoicingly their various courses. This was chaos. God, however, had determined out of this confused mass to make a fair and beauteous world ; and when His own time came, " He commanded, and all things stood fast; He spake, and it was done." He said, let light be, and light was. The waters at his bidding flowed back to the place prepared for them; the dry land appeared; mountains and valleys, forests and fields ...
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
isfow of 3Ust.nt!ht. Continued from p. 38. OUR last accounts on this subject gave some afflicting scenes in the lives of men who worked under the old system in gangs, taken from facts narrated to us by living witnesses, the real victims of the punishment and torture alluded to. With our readers' permission we will now resume our course in the history of this great country. Passing then from the time of Governor Macquarie, we proceed to the reign of his successor, Sir Thomas Brisbane, from the year 1821 to 1825. Very strong opinions being main tained at this time between the people and the Government, the Duke of Newcastle, their Colonial Secretary, ac corded to Australia " Self Government." In 1824 we find a Chief Justice, an Attorney General, a Solicitor General, a Master in Equity, and Colonial Treasurer duly installed in office. Another most important event affecting the liberty of the subject also occurred, viz.-the establishing trials by jury. The Press assumed a more independe...
Old Caleb. THE DOWNWARD ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
©II) Caleb-. By MRS. BEDFORD, Author of " Annie Leslie, $c., $c. (Continued from paqeXVJ,) THE DOWNWARD ROAD. MB. RICHARD SAMPSON was the only son of a retired tradesman, who, by many years of industry and economy had acquired a competency, and whose earnest desire was to see his son prosper by his own effqrts as he had done. But Richard, like many young * men so situated, preferred living upon the fruits of his father's industry to making for himself a respectable position. Such false pride and pitiable meanness are too often mistaken for gentlemanly feeling. " My brother is a gentleman," (said a young lady once to the writer,) " he cannot stoop to do this or that." No, but he could stoop to allow his wife and children to receive support from any of his family who would assist them, and he was not too proud to draw upon the means of an aged father till he could help him no longer. Richard had been placed with a surgeon, but he soon told liis father he was tired of that horrid pestl...

Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. CLOSE OF NIGHT THE SECOND. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 25 April 1857
®cn $%|ts in a |kr-|taom. BY T, S. ARTHUR. ( Continued from page 124.,) CLOSE OF NIGHT THE SECOND. " OFF with you, I say ! And never show your face here again. I wont have such low vagabonds as you are about my house. If you can't keep decent and stay decent, don't intrude yourself here." " A rum-seller talk of decency!" retorted Morgan. " Pah ! You were a decent man once, and a good miller into the bargain. But that time's past and gone. Decency died out when you exchanged the pick and facing hammer for the glass and muddler. Decency ! Pah ! How you talk ! As if it were any more decent to sell rum than to drink it." There was so much of biting con tempt in the tones, as well as the words of the half-intoxicated man, that Slade, who had himself been drinking rather more freely than usual, was angered beyond self-control. Catching up an empty glass from the counter, he hurled it with all his strength at the head of Joe Morgan. The missive just grazed one of his temples, and flew by o...
ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 9 May 1857
ARALUEN. The tea-party fixed for the evening of Easter Monday duly came off, and was a marked event in the annals of Araluen. Over the door of the schoolroom in which it was held was a transparency, with " Band of Hope," in large letters. The room was tastefully decorated with flowering shrubs, evergreens, and flowers ; the word " Welcome" at the end of the room immediately attracted the eye of the visitor. About eighty sat down to tea, grace being said by the Rev. Mr. Rich, of Braidwood. After ample justice had been done to the viands, and the tables cleared, the president (Mr. Cowan) expressed his pleasure at seeing such a numerous assembly, and apologised for the non arrival of the magic lantern, which should be exhibited gratuitously as soon as received. During the evening various temperance melodies were sung, and addresses from the secretary and the Rev. Mr. Rich, who expressed himself highly pleased with the zeal and energy of the members of the Araluen Band of Hope, the bene...
Selections. ENGLAND'S QUEEN A DISTRICT VISITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 9 May 1857
khtÛWB. ENGLAND'S QUEEN A DISTRICT VISITOR. A pleasing incident recently trans pired in one of the Scotch Law Courts, which will secure for our Queen many a hearty cheer from British sons of toil. It appears that a mason from Balmoral was being examined as a witness before the jury, when the presiding Judge spoke rather sharply to the hard-toiling Scotchman, who, although probably very expe ditious in dressing stones, was some what slow in addressing the Court. In reply, the man said, " Just allow me to tak' time, my lord, I'm no accus tomed to sic a company." On leaving the box, the mason said to the by standers, " The QUEEN has been to my hut, and she speaks pleasantly, and draws pretty pictures for the bairns. I would far rather speak to the Queen, than to yon chap wi' the big wig." Long live Queen Victoria! who, although swaying the sceptre over dominions in every part of the world, is not above leaving the gaiety oí palace life, and, entering the cottage oí a working man, is fo...
RESPONSIBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 9 May 1857
RESPONSIBILITY. The watchman of the Calais light house was boasting of the brilliancy of his lantern, which can be seen ten leagues at sea, when a visitor said to him, " What if one of the lights should chance to go out ?" " Never ! im possible !" with a sort of consternation at the bare hypothesis. " Sir," said he, pointing to the ocean, " yonder where nothing can be seen, there are ships going by to every part of the world. If to-night one of my burners were out, within six months would come a letter perhaps from India-perhaps from some place I never heard of-saying, that such a night, at such an hour, the light of Calais burned dim ; the watchman neglected his post, and ves sels were in danger. Ah, Sir ! some times on the dark nights, in the stormy weather, I look out to sea, and I feel as if the eye of the whole world were looking at my light ! Go out ? burn dim ? No, never !" Let your light so shine before men.
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 9 May 1857
OUR MESSAGE, THAT intemperance is a great evil none will dispute ; that teetotalism is a great good many do. Suppose we give it up-what plan have you offer in its stead? Remember that if a vessel at sea is sinking from a leak, plausible theories or impracticable projects will not keep her afloat. At a loss for any other plan you will say, "Leave things to themselves-they will come right." The experience of several hundred years pronounces that hopeless. " Try education and religious training." Out of 9000 criminals, in about 130 jails in f England, 6000 had been Sunday scholars, and four-fifths of these entered the path of crime through the gate of alcoholic drink ; and a hundred names among the refined and educated, are ready to start from the pen to prove that education is no safeguard. " Let us have free trade in the drinks," says another, " and we should soon get rid of the drunkards : they would not live long to annoy us if they got their fill ! " But, happily, the days of ROBE...
BOOKS AND BEADING— RULE THE WOELD. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 9 May 1857
BOOKS AND BEADING- EULE THE WOELD. QH S " Robinson Crusoe," and the songs of DIBDIN have sent many a youth *£\ from his home in search of adventures on the ocean, so we believe can the influence of almost every volume be traced to affect a peculiar tribe of followers, to whom it has afforded impulse in some path of life. There are those who have shaped their course, and formed their characters by the sage advice annually doled out by almanacs-while others have had their souls fired by the perusal of NELSON'S victories, NEWTON'S discoveries, and the more plaebian, but still bold achievements of " Tom Thumb," and " Gulliver's Travels." Whereon a book falls, there arises a spark which nought but extreme sickness or death can put out. Every man looks into a volume as he looks into his glass-to adjust his opinions--and smooth down some rough spot on the face of his character and appearance. A book is only a philosopher in type whom we can force to chat whenever we like, and draw from him...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 9 May 1857
(Continued from page 121.) TOWARDS evening the storm ceased, the stars shone out brightly, and Henry felt in much better spirits. He had resolved to go to a place of worship that evening, so after taking tea he walked out, undecided where to go to. He.feared to go to St. James' Church, lest he should see his employer there ; he had some time previously told him as an excuse for his absence from his pew, that he had taken a sitting in a dissenting chapel. He wandered down George-street, and seeing a chapel in as he thought a secluded spot, (at the rear of the new Cathedral,) where he would be unlikely to meet with any person who was acquainted with him, he walked in. The Rev. John Saunders, who will long be remembered in this colony as a zealous, faithful servant of Christ, and a most unflinching advocate of Temperance, preached a very appro priate sermon to young men. In most ear nest and touching language he warned his hearers of the many dangers to which they were constantly and p...
