Steer straight to me, Father, Steer straight to me. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Steer straight to me, Father, Steer straight to me. BY ELIZABETH H. J, CLEAVELAND, A FATHER, rowing with his little sort* touched at a small island, where he left him to await his return. But when he would have gone back to the child, a fog so dense shrouded the water as to cut him off entirely from the island. Wan dering long here and there, in despair of accomplishing his object, a sound from afar floated to his ear, and he recognised the voice of his little child, 'Steer straight to me, father,"steer straight to me.' With this for a gi\ide, the way so dubious was opened before him, and the little boat soon reached the island for his rescue. Some time afterwards the child sickened and died, leaving the mourning and unchristian parent longing, as before, "to regain his lost one, but in despair as to the way. And then did memory bring back the dear child's voice from the lonely isle, and eagerly he obeyed the same voice now, that ever seemed oalling to him thus, from heaven, '.bteer...

The Worth of a Character. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
The Worth of a Character. 'WHERE is John crying?' asked John's fa ther, stepping out of the garden door to learn what the matter was. ' I can't come down/ said a piteous voice from the top of the cherry tree. ' Climb down as ^ou climbed up,' said the little boy's father in an encour- j aging tone, supposing the child was a limb or too higher up in the world than he wished to be. ' I can't ever come down, father,' per sisted the little boy, sobbing. ' Don't be afraid,' said his father, ' I will climb up and take you down.' ' 0,' said the child, choking, ' I can't come down, for I told Lewis I would not ooine down till I saw the sun set, and the tree is not high enough to see it set.' It was some time before his father could satisfy him that it was right to come down; and this story shows what a conscientious child John was. Truthfulness was a strong rope in his character. John grew to thirteen or fourteen years. He was small of his age, and very quiet in his manners. His brothers wou...
The Little drowned Boy. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
w The Little drowned Boy. ON our way to church last Sabbath, we were startled and shocked to be met by the sad intelligence that a little boy had been drowned in the lake the night be fore ; and the calamity seemed to come nearer to us, when we heard that the child was a member of our own Sabbath school, one who had sat with our own children the Sabbath before and listened to the teachings from the word of God. How little he thought when he left his class that day, telling his teacher that ' he would be sure and know his lesson next Sunday,' where that Sabbath morn ing would find him. Little Samuel Kellogg was the young est of the family, and as there were se veral years between him and the one next older, he was a great darlmg and pet,, and was watched over with peculiar care; so much so that he had never been allowed, like maoy other boys of his ag£, to go- to the lake without an older person to accompany him. Last week, however, his father had promised him that he should go on Sa...
PITT-STREET BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
PITT-STREET BAND OF HOPE. Last Wednesday week Mr. Pemell gave the members of the Band an entertainment with his magic lantern. A crowded room gave evidence of the estimation in which this way of spending an evening is held, upwards of 280 being present. Those scenes from Scripture, so dear to the memory of child hood; were vividly depicted in the passing views, commencing with the one that brought death into our world and all our woe' The scenes gradually led on through those dis pensations of grace-pictures of patriarchs, prophets, and kingB passing in pleasing prospect, in shadowy language, telling of a glorious picture, when One should come, who would ransom, redeem, and reign over the raised family of man. The birth that angels heralded-the life that breathed and burned with Deity-the death at which creation mourned with sullen gloom, but which was itself irradiated with a halo of dazzling glory, formed the closing scenes. Singing a hymn, a vote of thanks to the lecturer, end th...
Never be Cruel. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Never be Cruel. WHENEVER'we see a boy cruelly beating a poor horse, or throwing stones at a dog or cat, we say to ourselves, 'That boy is likely to grow up a bad man.' When Nero, the wicked king, was a little boy, he was cruel to dogs, and pulled off the wings of flies, and tor mented them in many sad ways.-Lid he grow up to be a kind man ? Oh no ! sad to tell, he murdered his mother and burnt many good people to death. Boys and girls, we warn you not to be cruel to animals.
TO DAY AND TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
TO DAY AND TO-MORROW. If fortune, with a smiling face, Strew roses on our way, When shall we stop to pick them up ? To-day, my love, to-day. But should she frown with face of care, And talk of coming sorrow, When shall we grieve, if grieve we must ? To-morraiv, love, to-morrow. If those who wronged us own their faults* And kindly pity pray, When shall we listen and forgive To-day, my love, to day. But should she frown with face of care-, And talk of coming sorrow, When shall we grieve, if grie ^e we must ? To-morrow, love, to-morrow. If th ose who've wronged us own their faults,. And kindly pity pray, When shall we listen and forgive 1 To-day, my love, to-day. But if stern justice urge rebuke, And warmth from memory borrow, When shall we chide-if chide we dare 1 To-morrow, love, to-morrow. If those to whom we owe a debt Are harmed unless we pay, When shall Ave struggle to be just ? To-day, my love, to day. But if our debtors sue for grace, On pain of ruin through, When shall we slig...
FIGHTING DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
FIGHTING DOGS. As I strolj'd through the streets of Sydney one day, Observing the sights, whether mournful or gay- . . I notic'd two dogs, that each claim'd as his own The right to partake of a very large bone. With anger and rage they look'd at each other, And neither in kindness regarded his brother, But with teeth and with claws determined to hurt, ^ They grappled together, and rolled in the dirt. Amidst the confusion, a little dog spies This very large bone, and thought-what a prize ! The big dogs may fight, but whoever's the .winner, Let me have the bone, it will make me a dinner. So, watching his time, he seizes the prize, And to a sly corner he off with it hies Where, licking his lips without intervention, He laugh'd at the folly of strife and con tention. For soon, the fight over, tlia dog that was beat Full of pain and disgrace, ran fast down the street While the dog that had won, amidst panting and puffing Found, with sad disappointment,, he'd fought " all for nothing." W....
An Indian Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
An Indian Story. ^ ^ie early settlement of x America, a strange Indian £%^s_^Lp field, Connecticut, and asked for something to eat; at the same time saying th t, as he had been unsuccessful in hunting, he had nothing to pay. The woman who kept the inn, not only refused his reasonable request, but called him hard names. But a man that was standing by, seeing that the Indian was suffering for want x)f food, told her to give him what he wanted at his expense. When the Indian had finished his supper he thanked the man, and assured him that he should be faith fully recompensed, whenever it was in his power. Some years after this, the man had occasion to go from Litchfield to Albany, where he was taken prisoner by the In dians, and carried to Canada. Some of them proposed that he should be put to death, but an old woman demanded that he should be given to her, that she might adopt him in place of a son, who had been killed in the war. This was done, and he passed the winter in her family....
THE REASON WHY MRS. SIGOURNHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
THE SEASON WHY MRS. SIGOURNHY. I SAW a little girl, With half-uncovered form, And wondered why she wandered thus, Amid the winter storm : They said her mother drank of that Which took her sense a,way, And so she let her children go Hungry and cold all day. I saw them lead a man To prison for his crime, Where solitude and punishment And toil divide the time; And as they forced him through the gate, Unwillingly £tlong, - They told me 'twas intemperance That made him do the wrong.. I saw a woman weep As if her heart would break; They said her husband drank too mttdh . Ot what he should not take ; I saw an unfrequented mound, Where weeds and brambles wave, They said no tear had fallen there, It was a drunkard's grave. They said these were not all The risks th' intemperate run; For there was danger lest the soul Be evermore undone. Since, water, then,-is pure and sweet, And beautiful to see, And since it cannot do us harm, .. It is the drink for me. TRIPLES NOT TO BE DESPISED.-The nerve ...

WHAT CAN CHILDREN DO? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
WHAT CAN CHILDREN DO? JN answer to our question, marry will be ready to say Why, children can do a great deal; they can bUild ships and schools-they can give a deal of money to patriotic funds, and send out missionaries to distant lands to preach the gospel-they can make them selves useful to those who are older than themselves, and do a great many things that nobody else can do, and which never would be done if children did not do them ; and, above all, they can help for ward the great cause of Teetotalism. And they can do this in various ways; but there is one way which if carried out with spirit will help forward the tem perance cause in a most effectual manner, and that is, by means of this little maga zine. They can read it-and what they there reatl they can tell to every one of their young friends who have not read it. And they can think about what they readj and see whether it is true, and ask those who are older and wiser what they think about it. They can Jet others read it...

Drini makes Men Murderers. CAN our young readers peruse the fol lowing account without a chill of horror running through their veins, and a stern and impassioned resolve forcing itself into their minds that they will not touch, taste, nor handle that drink that can make even them such demons* At the water police court, George-street, on the 11th of this month (March), a man named ' Thomas Gough was charged with attempting to drown his infant child, aged twelve months.
