GOULBURN. ON Wednesday April 21, Mr. S, F. Black more delivered an address. He first proposed a simple plan to ensure a larger attendance at the monthly meetings ; and then gave some reasons, not only why the young should join the society, but also attend the meetings as regularly as possible. He showed the many advan tages the young of the present day, and of this land, possessed over others; and the difficulties overcome by many young people not having these advantages to gain knowledge. Mr. B. cited the opinions of the English Judges, and the remarks made by the Judges whilst on the last assizes, as to the crimes com mitted through intemperance. Educa tion was no bar, for in many prisons seven-eighths of the prisoners had been to school. Several anecdotes were given, allowing the baneful effects of intem perance, the influence children exerted on their parents, and the results of the example set by good children.

>mus frp a fife Iram BY THE AUTHORESS OF " GERTRUDE. (Continued from page 139.) THE scenery had changed materially during the last few days ; the open plains and keen atmosphere, had given place to mountains, alternately shel tering deep vales, or rising in exposed barren masses of scrub and rock. Descending one of these ridges where the road had been cut through a broken shale formation, and was on one side shaded by a high bank and on the other hung above a gully, our horse quickened his pace; the road broken by ruts, where in wet .wsons streams coursed across it; and i was anticipating with pleasure the moment when we should have attained the level country, when the animal tossing his head suddenly as he re covered a false step, dashed the ill secured bridle from his head; the trembling groom had not fastened the buckles, and the powerful creature turned his startled gaze upon the tilted cart lumbering behind him; one view with dilated eyes sufficed, he sprang forward, of cour...

CHAPTER IV " Intemperance ! Oh, word of fear-of dread ! On all domestic comforts art thou fed. * * * o * * Wrecks of what had been noble-what might be Still good, and great, and glorious, but for thee!'" H. G. ADAMS. " Etheline," said Miss Berwick one day,looking in at the school-room door, " when my sisters have finished their lessons, will you come to my room ? I have something to say to you." I obeyed. "You know, Miss Yarden," she said, making me sit down, and taking a place beside me, " that Johnny is going to school next month, and Alice and Lilly are now of an age to "i require accomplishments. You have taught them entirely to our satisfaction, and we are much obliged for the un tiring pains you have bestowed upon them, and in hearing them practise their music lessons have really become a very nice performer ; yet-" T understand you, there are French, and Italian, and many other accomplish ments, whieh I cannot teach ; and you would wish to seek a more highly educated instruct...

ijitnr §nxhm. ( Continued from page 140 J HENRY'S tears fell fast as he listened to the old lady's earnest thanksgivings to Almighty God for His great goodness and tender mercies, displayed in an swering their oft presented petitions to His throne of grace, in restoring the poor shipwrecked youth to reason; and as he wept he inwardly vowed if Grod would restore him to health, that he would henceforth live to His service. Another week passed, and Henry was now convalescent and able to walk out in the warm sunshine, and enjoy the delightfully picturesque scenery around. The cottage was prettily situated on a gentle slope, near to the missionary station of Pahia, and overlooking the expansive waters of the Bay of Islands. Within a short distance was a long sandy beach, upon which the waves of the restless ocean continually foamed and roared. This was a spot to which Henry loved to roam, and was often accompanied by one or other of his gentle nurses, who watched and tended to his wants ...

" On rising from our beds at dawn, light suddenly bursts upon us, travelling at the rate of millions of miles per second, although the splendid orb which emits it is ninety-five millions of miles from us. " Cast your eyes around you-if upon a landscape, the glittering particles hanging from a blade of grass remind you that even in your hours of slumber, Nature has still been at work, moistening and refreshing the earth and atmosphere for their myriads of subjects. The dew drop itself is a world in miniature, holding thousands of animalculag which, although so small, have motion and vitality as ourselves. Walk on the banks of a river, and there you will see the finny tribe darting and swimming in sportive merriment, as if they enjoyed the still cool hours of morn, when more freed from the snares of man.

itsunmte. 111 INTEND to insure my life, Polly dear," said John Newman to his wife, as he was changing his working dress one evening, previous to sitting down to the tea table, where his three rosy faced, healthy looking children were already seated in pleasant anticipation of this evening meal with daddy. " Ha, ha, ha," laughed Mrs. Newman, as she laid hsr infant in a snug little cot in the corner of the room, and seated herself at the head of the table and commenced pouring out the tea. 11 Why, what new plan will you pro pose next, John. I thought you had taken the best method of insuring your life, when you joined the Teetotal Society with me twelve months ago; I am sure no one can be blessed with "better health than you have had since that time, thanks be to God, and I think it is presumption to talk of in suring your life, when you know it is in the hands of God alone. I don't like the idea of it." " Ah, I see you do not understand it, Polly," said John, good naturedly, seating ...

&lt;£EW things more unfavourably strike an intelligent settler among us than our deficiency in agencies for affording rational amusement, refining pleasure, or mental improvement. We seem as a colony to have been so intent upon the materialism of life, as not even to have given time to build a hall where music could be relished, or speaking could be heard. Apart from the theatres, where is the building in which real singers would risk their musical reputation ? or where one of Handel's choruses could be produced with effect ? The Swedish Nightingale would croak like a raven in our School of Arts ; and Lablache or Herr Formes would deafen for a month every soul assembled in our new Exchange Hall. There is a similar but more pressing want with regard to a suitable place for holding public meetings, or where public lectures could be given. The Prince of Wales Theatre may do for a temporaiy convenience, but the inhabitants of Sydney owe it to their own. dignity and interests to ...
Poetry. A RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 8 May 1858
odrir. A RECORD. BY CHARES HARPUB. I had wandered, a wild sinner, To the wreck-strewn shores of madness, Where, through the cloudy vagueness Hell's fiery horrois glow: A weird delusive region, Where Wit, and Strength, and Gladness, Are changed to Riot's demons A Trinity of woe! There roaming a wild sinner A flown Circdan dreamer, The cup was smitten from me By, it seemed, a golden rod! And I heard a clear voice, saying Return ! and a Redeemer Shall clothe thee in the morning With the sanity of God! I know not how it may be But lo, the day is breaking! And lo, the cup of Circe Lies shattered where it rolled! And the water sparkles gladly Wherewith my thirst I'm slaking; And the morning life around me Looks fresher than of old ! And hark! yon dawn-lit chamber Is vocal with young voices The voices of my children! How healingful they sound! While more and more within me A new-born strength rejoices In the mystical assurance Of Redemption breathing round! I know not whence it cometh But ...
The First Spark. THE SEPOY MUTINY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 8 May 1858
THE SEPOY MUTINY. A MAN of low caste employed in tlie artillery arsenal at Dumdum-so runs the tale-one day asked a Brahmin soldier to allow him to drink some water out of his lotah (a small vessel of brass used for drawing and containing water). The Brahmin declined, on the ground that his lotah would be rendered unclean by the touch of the thirsty and low-caste man. " You are very particular about your caste to-day," rejoined the other with a sneer ; " but you don't mind biting cartridges that are made up with animal fat." The Brahmin, in an agony of shame and terror, inquired the meaning of this startling accusation, and was informed that the cartridges given out for the new Enfield rifles were made up with pigs' or bullocks' fat. The story spread with the rapidity of fire in a stack yard, and the credulous sepoys, both Hindoo and Mohammedan, readily believed that a covert attempt was being made to undermine their respective religions. It is needless to insist upon the absurdity o...
"Zat is my Trunk!" [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 8 May 1858
is nig Crunk!'' IN the days of coaching over the Provi dence turnpike, before railway carriages were in esse, and baggage-crates existed, and when travellers had to keep a sharp look-out for their luggage, some forty or lifty persons had just stepped on board the old " Ben Franklin," and got under weigh on Narragansett Bay. A gentle man, who had occasion to get some of his wardiobe, had just hauled out from an immense pile of baggage stowed amid-ships, a new black leather trunk of portly dimensions, studded with brass nails, when a little withered Frenchman, of a mottled complexion, and fashionably dressed, darted from the crowd, and interposing between our friend and his property, exclaimed, courteously, but posi tively " I beg your pardon, sare-mats, par donnez mot-you have got ze wrong cochon by ze oreille-zat is my trunk I" " Not so, monsieur-I hope I know my own traps." " Restez tranquille-hold on-dans un instant, I vill prove my props-aha! you see dis key, eh ?" Apply img it t...

>«nts front a %'xk Drama. BY THE AUTHORESS OP " GEKTBUDE. (Continued from page 154.) I had been for a walk one evening, and on my return found Miss Annie very unwell, and applied myself to alleviate her sufferings. Dr. and Mrs. Willoughby were from home, and im patiently I awaited their return. It was about two in the morning when the carriage stopped at the door; I would have ran down stairs but Annie laid on my arm, and it was some minutes before I could do so. The light of a candle led me into the dining room. Mrs. Willoughby was there hastily and impatiently unclasping her jewellery and furs. " Miss Annie is very unwell," I said. 4 41 will go to her, Etheline." " But I must have the Doctor where is he T' " He cannot see her to night." " Why?-he must, she is very ill." " My poor darling," she looked so wounded, that I regretted the warmth with which my words had been uttered. " Where is he ?-has he not re turned ?"
