MUSIC, DRAMA, &c. IN consequence of th« unfavourable state of the weather, during the past week, we have very little to notice in the mußical way. However, Miss Julia Simmon' concert is announced to take place at the new Masonic ball, on Thursday, when, from the amount o'talentengaged, together with the assistance of the band of the XI Ith, and the pieces seiectc d, wc have no doubt, will prove highly gratifying to all who may honor the concert with their presence. We consider the prices are too hij¿h. LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR.-This opera was per formed by Mr. Lyster'6 company, at the Victoria, on Wednesday, before a numerous audience. Though inferior to many of the composer's other works, it possesses some very beautiml morceaux. The drama was originally written in French, and it was afterwards transferred to Italian, but not before Donizetti had composed the music for Anna Thillon, who performed the part of Lucie. Madame Escott as Lucia interpreted the part with great feeling a...

Mr. Church, for the prisoner, had noth ing to ask him. " Oh, yes! I beg pardon. Perhaps your lordship will just allow me to ask him one question ?

THE TRUE AND VERITABLE HISTORY OF A CABBAGE PLANT. CHAPTER III. How it came to pass that I was ' sent to the Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 August 1861

THE TRUE AND VERITABLE HISTORY OF A CABBAGE PLANT. BY A. FORESTER. CHAPTER III. How it came to pass that I was ' sent to the Colonies. The truth will out I I have been an impostor, the reputed, the acknowledged possessor of qualities, which never were mine, the bearer of a name to which I had no right, the supposed native of a country which I never saw. Bat al though I have made a clear breast of it, ; ana in the bitterness of my spirit have called myself hard names, I allow no such liberty to Brown, Jones, or other eccen tric, morose minded grumblers. The treatment I have undergone, the barba rities I have suffered at the hands of general-provision-dealer Thomas Strag gles, the ill-featured, the dishonest, the unwashed and uncombed too, have en tirely soured my formerly amiable and placid temperament, curdled whatever of the milk of cabbage nature waa infu sed into my reins by the genial warmth of a Hy gate sun. I might hug myself in the consolatory reflection, that I am no worse t...

THE TWO ANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 August 1861

THE TWO ANGELS. -o#-; The following sketch is foundea on the beautiful idea of Sterne's (in his Tristram Shandy), where the Anjrel of mercy is represented as blotting out the words just written by the Recording Angel. HIGH in the regions of eternal rest, Far above earth and ear'.hly hopes and fears, Ear from all woe and sorrowing-the blest Abode of those bright spirits to whom tears Are no more known, ard whose ne'er ending years Of bliss and blessedness Time doth not bound Or limit, those whom Care's corroding chain Again can never bind, or guilt enstain. Gazing upon the far off world, iiv stern Serenity, there stood a form of mien, Majestic, and yet sad, as ii to learn Of erring man, and of his faults had been Grief to his pitying heart, rankling and keen ; His lips were thin and,bloodless, and his eyes Were dark end calm, and piercing as are those Of the cloud-oleaving eagle, when the skies Buoy up his kingly form, as forth he goes To greet the sun, scorning his earthly foes.

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 August 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS (Continued from page 806.) "NOT like wine! " I never drink it by choice. At a dinner-table such as this, I sip it, not to appear singular, but I do not like it well enough to do more than just put my lips to it." " I never heard of such a thing as not liking wine," repeated Lord Temple. " What do yon like ?' ' Water.'* " I wonder yon oan choose anything so insipid. Arthur never drank anything but water, I remember." " Never. He is more particular than I. I almost call it one of the points in Arthur's religion, to drink simple water." *' But why ?" enquired Lord Temple. " For one thing, we were brought up to drink it ; as children, neither beer nor wine was ever given to us ; we were not suffered to know the taste of them. And," added Isabel, sinking her voice, *' the very last words mamma ever said to Arthur, were an injunction not to drink anything but water." *. When she was dying ?'' " uh no.

TERRARA! A MOONLIGHT REVERIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 August 1861

TERRA R Af A MOONLIGHT REVERIE» BT F. S. WILSON. Inc« fluttering birds from their leaf-hidden nests, The pale stars beglnneth to scatter ; Shedding silvery charms on the shadowy mists That float around dark Coolangatta. * The river flows bright from its cliff-guarded source Like Mercy illuming- the brow of Remorse-! And ever it sings, as it speeds on ita course, A love-song to sleeping Terrara! And O ! with what gull ty ; yet rapturous bliss, lt hurries away with its booty \ Betraying the flowers with a Judas-like kiss Whilst admiring their, magical beauty ! The breath of the night-wind hath lingered and died Among the tall reeds by the dark water side. But merrily onward the river doth glide Where mountains look down on Terrara ! The light of the cottage fires rises and sink? With a ruddy, yet glimmering quiver, On wattles that cling to the tide-fretted brink Bowing their heads to the river ! ? O ! the landscape sleeps on in a beamtiful .guise . Like a maiden who dreaming of Paradi...

SHE CROSSETH MY PATH. A BALLAD BY HENRY KENDALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 August 1861

SHE CROSSETH MY PATH. A BALLAD BY HENRY KENDALL.   SHE crosseth my path with a beautiful smile, That will wax, when I watch it, the brighter ; She bringeth the face of the absent to view, And my bosom grows lighter and lighter ! It cannot be her that I loved in the Past, Yet a something will-when I behold her -- Awaken the feelings which slept in my heart, And I long in my arms to enfold her. When Morning comes stealing the dews from the tree, And the sunlight is over the wildwood, I traverse the valley that leads to the sea ; And I roam o'er the scenes of my childhood ! It is there that I meet her and straggle to speak   But I cannot-a spell is around me; And she glideth away, and she leaves me alone In the darkness in which she had found me!   When the Moon in the evening is gleaming above, And the night breeze is kissing the river, I sit by the margin and sigh for the Days That have left me for ever and ever ! But often a joy, like a glimmer...

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS CHATTER X. Lord Temple's Folly. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS I Contimit d from page 3060 CHATTER X. Lord Ten»pie's Folly. TIME went on. Time goes on with us all. Lord Temple paid occasional visits to Danesbury House, his conduct there teing: all that it ought to be, and Isabel's attachment to him grew deeper and j deeper. Their marriage was not spoken of, even yet, as a speedy event, although they were both some years older than when first engaged, but his affairs did not get straight. Serle and St. George performed prodigies of wonder towards righting them, so the former assured Lord Temple ; but the more they effected, the more his lordship spent. Every morning of his life did Lord Temple make a firm resolve that the morrow should see him begin a life of reforma tion, of saving, and every night saw his lordship spending as before. j Robert and Lionel Danesbury had been for some time resident in London. Robert's regiment, a foot regiment, was quartered there; and Lionel, who had done with Mr. Pratt, was with an eminent tow...

" THY WILL BE DONE!" -1 "SHOULD deep affliction's heavy hand Press sorely on my hoad", And the dark clouds at God's command, j The firmament o'erspread ; Though not a hope of cheering ray From the bright rising sun, j May Heaven inspire my-hear; to say, 1 « Thy will, O Lord, be done !'

If, at the close of earth's career, Sharp pangs my patience try, On the sick couch when death draws near, I lay me down to die ; Ere the last pulse to beat shall stay, And death his prize has won, May I, in sweet submission, say, 4 Thy will, O Lord, be done !

THE GOOD TIME'S COMING. Only wait a little longer, Boys. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861

THE- GOOD TIME'S COMING. Only wait a little longer, Boys. - THESE words are almost become a household phrase. Children lisp it, and men of hory hairs utter it with ecstacy, exulting at the thought that those whom they are soon to leave behind are born to a brighter destiny than fell to their own lot. Yonder mother, as she takes her hungry children to their cheerless dormitory, and ransacks the house for every old garment that may serve as a substitute for bed-clothes, wipes the falling tear from her cheek as she dreams of a better time coming Those fathers, too, who have borne the burden and heat of many a day and night of labour, who have for years risen early, late taking rest, and eating the bread of carefulness and affliction, though their brow is prematurely wrinkled with care, their countenance worn, and their hands horny with incessant hardship and toil, yet brace themselves with patience and courage as they see in the distance the dawn of a happy day. Yes, and those self-den...

CULTIVATION OF GRAPES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861

CULTIVATION OF GRAPES. WE will suppose you are about to form a trellis-that you set your plants and erected your frame last year, and . you now wish to commence trimming and training. Cut the vines down to three good buds - no more-if you want vines, let them grow. If yon want grapes, cut away the vines. The two most thrifty roots of the three buds, you will permit to grow. When two are well established, cut away the third and train the other two along the lower wire, (wire is better than strips of wood,) in opposite directions. If you are cultivating vinès in a field or large plat, it will be well to plant po tatoes between the rows ; at any rate, keep the ground free of weeds. Leave all your cuttings and leaves to rot upon the spot where they will be of service to the growing vines. Second Year's Management.-As soon in the spring as the weather will permit, make the ground mellow with spade or cultivator, adding manure if necessary.
