INTELLIGENCE. j Parramatta JSand of Hope Anniversary. IN compliance with a corteous invitation, we found ourselves, at six o'clock on Wednesday even ing last, seated at a tea table profusely loaded with tempting dainties,, tastily adorned with bouquets, and ably presided over by a very agreeable young lady, (who was assisted by several other agreeable young ladies and young gentlemen to match) in a tent, profusely decorated with flowers and ever greens, erected in the Barrack square Parramatta. The auspicious occasion was the celebration of the third anniversary of the Parramatta Band of Hope. The children, with holiday smiles gracing their happy faces, were marched through the town in the afternoon ^ displaying their elegant banners) under the direction of their worthy President and his able staff of zealous co-operaters, and after wards returned to the ground where they were sumptuously regaled, and then allowed to amuse themselves on the green sward in various innocent games whic...

REMINISENCES OF A FORTNIGHT'S RAMBLE IN THE HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
KEM1N1SENCES OF A FORTNIGHT'S RAMBLE IN THE HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT. -è I QUESTION if my present reminis cences will enlighten your readers very much, Mr. Editor of the "Home Com panion," for, as your polite note informs me you want this article this evening, I must write it this morning, and really one might as well try to write sermons in a sausage shop, with the chopping machine going at full speed, or compose music next door to a coffin maker's, as to write collectedly in my study before ten o'clock at night. All the babblings at Babel, I am sure, were harmony com pared with the distracting noises that I am doomed to endure day after day. I have got used to the din of my daughters' practising the piano and harmonium to gether in the drawing-room just over my head, but these peripatetic street mer chants, with their extraordinary wares, and cries to match, defy all my philo sophy. I shall never get used to their horrible noises, for they are new every day and their name is legion. ...
PRETTY WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
PRETTY WIVES. -* YoüNG men are always talking about getting pretty wives. It is a very pretty thing to have a pretty wife, if she is also a sensible, womanly wife. My sons are all married, and, as I have a numerous family of them, I've something of an opportunity to judge-now that 'tis too late to better their condition-what sort ot* wives a certain kind of girls make. I'm sorry to say it, but all but one of my pretty daughter's-in-law are more plague than pleasure to their husbands. They are vain, silly, fidgety, inefficient, fretful, selfish, and exacting. They are jealous, too ; and it is the grief of my old age to know that the happiness and the entire comfort of many of my noble sons are wrecked for life. And all because they allowed themselves to be blinded by the glare of youthful beauty, and thus render ed unable to detect, or even to regard what they knew, of the mental deformity of the syrens whom they chose for their wives. It is my heart's grief-but I will not interfere ...
THE SMUGGLERS CAVE. FROM THE PAPERS OF A REVENUE OFFICER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 23 April 1859
THE SMUGGLERS CAVE. FROM THE PAPERS OF A REVENUE OFFICER. - F.OB more than a year our revenue vessels upon the sea, and a posse upon the land, had been in search of the smuggler, Ralph Morwood ; hut he had eluded us at every step, and still carried on his ilicit traffic in spite of us. We knew that the northern part of Lanca shire was flooded with rum and brandy of his smuggling ; but the people along the coast were all friendly to him, and lent him their assistance. Finally we learned, through careful spies whom we sent out, that his usual place of entry was somewhere on the eastern shore of Morecambe Bay, between the Wash of the Loyne and Westmorland, and further more, that he had a great quantity of contraband liquor stored near the coast. After considerable consultation, it was decided that I should take the matter into my own hands, and ferrit out the depot of the smugglers if I could. I had not much hopes of success where so many had failed ; but perhaps fortune might favor me...

4 INTELLIGENCE. Opening' of the Temperance Hall. THIS handsome and commodious building: situate in Pitt-street, opposite the Congregational Church, was opened by a series of meetings, commencing on the 20th ult. On the first evening a Public Meeting was held, presided over by Chief Justice Sir Alfred Stephen, who in a most eloquent and impressive speech, advocated the claims of the society upon the consideration of the public; he spoke of the still fearful prevalence of drunken ness, that during the year 3000 persons, less 40, had passed through the Sydney jail committed for this crime alone. In the most eulogistic terms he expressed his desire that the society might prosper, at the same time gave some general hints for its guidance. His Honor was warmly applauded throughout the address. The meeting jgas then successively addressed by the Revds. R. Mansfield, S. Ironside, Dr. Woolley, J. Beaely, P. P. Agnew, J. H. Stanley, and Mr. J. H. Plunkett, Q.C., who all bore able testimony to...

DO THEY MISS ME AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
DO THEY MISS ME AT HOME ? Do they miss mre at home ? do they miss me, 'Twould be an assurance most dear, To know that this moment some lov'd ones "Were saying we wish he were here, To feel that the group at the fireside, Were thinking of me as I roam; Oh yes 'twould be joy beyond measure To know that they miss'd me at home. When twilight approaches the season That ever is sacred in song, Does some one repeat my name over And sigh that I tarry so long ; And is there a chord in the music, That's miss'd when my voice is away, And a chord in each heart, that awaketh Regret at my wearisome stay. Do they set me a chair near the table, When evening's home pleasures-are nigh, When the candles are lit in the parlours And the stars in the calm azure sky, And when the " good nights " are repeated, And all lay them down to sleep, Do they think of the absent and waft me A whisper'd "good night " while they weep.. Do they miss me at home ? do they miss mer At morning, at noon, or at night ? And l...

THE SYDNEY VOCAL HARMONIC SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
? , THE SYDNEY VOCAL HARMONIC SOCIETY. This society gave their second Concert on Thurs day, 27th ult. A very large audience assembled, and were agreeably surprised at the vast progress made by members of this soci ety. The Solos were well sung, especially those by a young lady amateur, whose clear fiute-li ke tones rang home to the hearts of all who heard her. Her rendering of the passage entrusted to her, was most effective. The chorusses were excellent: the rich flow of melody from so many, now well trained voices, produced an effect impossible to describe. Want of space prevents a larger notice, but we cordially congratulate the society on its evident progress.
COURTING THE WIDOW: A MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
COURTING THE WIDOW : A MISTAKE. Mr. Crane : 'Well, widder, I've been thinking of taking another companion, and I thought I'd ask you.' Widow: 4 O, Mr. Crane, egsuse my commotion-it's so unexpected.

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. THE TEMPERANCE HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
Cjje Australian Pome Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. 4 THE TEMPERANCE HALL, The opening of the Temperance Hall in Sydney, is an event on which we may fairly congratulate our readers. It is not so very long ago since the idea of having such a building was started ; and even then, it seemed to many rather a thing that was desirable than one that was possible. Formidable difficulties stood in the way of the realisation of the idea ; the movement was not so widely and efficiently sus tained as could have been wished; and for some time, it seemed as though the project must be abandoned, or, if carried out, that it would have to carry on its early existence under the depressing incubus of a heavy debt. However, when men are really enthusiastic in a good cause, they are not easily diverted from their purpose. Though cast down they are not destroyed, and hold to what they have set their hearts on with a tenacity which results ultimately in success. This is the secret of all great and w...
The Wesleyan Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
The Wesleyan Bazaar. The Temperance Hall, Pitt-street, presented a very animated and attractive scene during last week on the occasion of the Wesleyan Bazaar, for which preparations have been long in progress. The stalls were numerous, and the display of articles for sale, whether for use or ornament, could hardly be surpassed. Great credit is due to the contributors for the taste and liberality they have shown. A very good attendance thronged the Bazaar, about 1000 persons were present on the first day. The fair stall keepers exerted their | winning way to great advantage, and few were I proof against their pretty pertinacity. The receipts, exceeded £700. free of all expences SYDNEY :-Printed by SAMUEL BANCROFT, No. 9, Parramatta-street; and Published by H. B. LK« 300, Pitt-street.-Saturday, May 7th, 1859.
EARLY SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
EARLY SUMMER. BY CHARLES HARPUB. 'TK the early summer season With its skies so clear and blue ; And the wide warm fields are glad with coin As green as ever grew; And the hill-side growing wattles are All golden to the view; And the woods are whitened over by The loud Cockatoo. O there is a conscious smiling In a heaven so clearly blue ; And it must-it must be a felt joy That thus comes blooming through The great mother heart of Nature when The golden year is new; And the woods are snowed all over by The white Cockatoo. NOTE.-When the forest trees come into bloom-sooner or later, according to the badness of the season-the white cockatoos suddenly appear in some locali ties in vast numbers; for the blooms of these forest trees, particularly those of the so called apple, contain a good deal of saccharine matter; and it is upon these, at this season, that the cockatoos feed. And while thus engaged, they will hang more or less thickly all about the wide-spreadboughs of an apple tree for...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ADA LONGMORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ADA LONGMORK 4 OH ! Lillie, Ive had such a hunt after you; who'd ever think of finding you in the garden at this time of the day ' said Ada Longmore to her cousin, one morning. 4 Well, Ada,' rejoined Lillie, 'have you any pleasant news to communicate ?' 4 Yes, indeed, I have. What do yon think; there is to be a quadrille party at Mr. Layton's, on Thursday ; invitations have been sent, and papa says we may all go.' 'Yes, Lillie,' said Mrs. Longmore, joining the cousins, ' I quite revel in the idea of seeing you once more in suitable colours; never put on that sombre hue again.' Lillie's cheek grew paler, and she trembled as she replied, 'Dear Uncle, do not ask me to go; poor mamma is only six months dead, and I know she had a great objection to dancing parties, or anything upon which God's blessing could not be implored.' 'Lillie,' said her Uncle, interrupting her, ' I insist upon a stop being put to this nonsense and hypocrisy ; there is no harm in it, and you ...

F A C T S, FUN, AND FANC Y. WHAT era in the world has been most destructive ? The Choi-era. GIRLS use powder on the face as men do in the musket pan-to make them go off. THERE are hundreds of sewing machines in New York city driven by steam, and thousands driven by want. THE child's idea of ice-' Water gone to sleep.' THE lad's translation of Latin to the schoolmistress-vir, a man ; gin, a trap ; -virgin, a man-trap. TUB difference between a hair bed and a bare head is, that one flees for shelter, and the other is a shelter for fleas.

THE SEA. BY "[?] LOVER OF NATURE." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
THE SEA. LOVER OF NATURE. ,4 There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on a lonely shore, There is society where none intrude, By the deep sea, and music in its roar.' I AM no poet,-I cannot hope to write 1 words that the world will not willingly let die,' but the subject of my few ramb ling thoughts is sufficient to inspire almost any one with the feelings of poetry, and a line of the beautiful, how ever much the power may be wanting of expressing them. I have no patience with would-be poets who cannot express themselves in plain prose. I know little of what 1 may call the technicalities of poetry, nor have I any patience with the versifiers of the day, who rhyme upon any or no sub ject. But all honor be to the true poets, who have given expression to thoughts that will never die, but will ever find an echo in the hearts of man, while the world endures. The sea has ever inspired the true poet, from the time when Homer sang of I the launching of the ships of the ...
