WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY. CHAPTER VII. TWO SHADES OF SQUATTER. LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861
WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY. BY V. S. WILSON, CHAPTER YU. TWO SHADKS OF SQUATTER. LIFE. ."In error obst'nate, in wangling: loud, For trifles eager, positive, and loud." MALLET. " I HAVE told you more than once, that this subject is altogether distasteful to me ; then why continue to press it ?" was the exclamation of Mr Ashworth as he rode by the side of his friend, or rather neighbour, Denisher, senior. To judge by the countenance of either the speaker or his companion, the sub ject of conversation must have been an unpleasant one; for the usually frank open brow of Mr. Ashworth wore an I ominous shade, and that of his companion bore a scowl, bespeaking disappointed plans and shattered hopes. There was but little resemblance be tween the features of Denisher and those of his son Linley, but there was a still wider difference in the appearance of the men, who might have been called friends, but whom a certain uncon geniality of feeling had compelled to acknowledge each other as me...

THE UP AND DOWN TRAINS OF LIFE. (Continued from nacre 344.^ CHURCH spoke next. I " i shall not put you to the pain, my lord, of telling us the circumstances under which your family name is dis covered or has been taken away from you-whichever the case may be." "Qou'd better, I should" think-oh, you'd better 1" said Blinniore, trying to taunt-but he didn't make much of it. He could scarcely have been worse off if the question had been pursued ; for there were a hundred directions in which he knew how fatal to him would be this discovery. The cold sweat sat on his brow in heads. He dabbed it up with his handkerchief. " No, my lord," said Hugh, "we won't push that part of your history ; it would scarcely seem fair ; besides, we don't want it. We'll come to another period, long before you left home. ? " Does your lordship recollect ever taking an interest in the races at Sore s by, in the county where you resided ?" " Perfectly," said Blinmore. V Possibly, you remember, m}T lord-" " Now...
GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861
GLEANINGS. SLANG: WOBDS AND PHRASRS.-A lecture delivered in Exeter Hall, London, some time since, by the Bev. Hugh Stowell Brown contained the following amusing and instructive passage.-*The point to which I have next to direct attention is manliness in speech There are many young men who seem to consider it esen tial to manliness (hat they should be masters of slang. The sporting world, like its brother, the swell mob, has a language of its own; but this dog' Ehglish extends far beyond the sporting world. It comes with its hordes of bar barous words, threatening the extinction of genuine English. Now, just listen for a moment to our fast young man, or the ape of a fast young man, who thinks that to be a man he must speak in the dark phraseology of slang. If he does anything on bis own responsibility, he does it on his own * hook,' If he sees any thing remarkably good, he calls it a * stunner,' the superlative of which is a ' regular stunner,' If a man is requested to pay a tavern b...
COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861
COLONIAL NEWS. THB fifth anona] meeting of the New South Wales Bush Missionary Society was held, on Tuesday evening, in the Temperance Hall. Although the weather was extremely unfavour able, the hall was nearly filled. Mr. David Walker, the Secretary, read the-. annual report, from which it appears that during the past year the committee had found, it desirable to change the ! name of the society from the Juvenile Missionary Society to the New South Wales Bush Missionary Society, the latter being considered she most suit able. After alhvding to the departure . from Sydney to Albery of the late Secretary, of the society, Mr. S, Moore, the report went on to notice the opera tions of the society, which consisted chiefly of bush missions. On these, the system of colportage, which had been found, so useful in America as a means of preaching the gospel, had been adopted, and the committee had *j engaged as a colportage Mr. Slater. Since his appointment, their agent had visited 1800 famili...
BARREL AND THE BOTTLE; OR, TRACK MARKS OF THB TBADE. A FEW RECENT SPECIMENS. DRINK'S BLUNDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861
BARREL AND THE BOTTLE; I OR, TRACK MARKS OF THB TBADC» A FEW RECENT SPECIMENS. DRINK'S BLUNDERS. WILLIAM BIÄKS, a young man re spectfully connected, was brought tip under the following circumstance*. The complainants were Andrew Mac farlane and his wife, who resided at East View. The wife having accident ally left the door unlocked, the family were disturbed by hearing a great noise down stairs, caused by the up setting of chairs and kicking at the doors. Macfarlane and his wife, of course in a state of undress, hurried down stairs, and the husband was rudely collard by the defendant, who in the struggle attempted to bite-his leg. The defendant, it seems, resides in the neighbourhood, and; whilst under the influence of liquor, entered Maefarlane's house, and,, believing he was in his own domicile, fancied bim-, self " monarch over all he surveyed," and hence the- unpleasant colusión which ensued, and the defendant's appearance before the bench. Birks, in his defence, said he was ash...

As Captain Morris conduced the kind advice to his nephew, mentioned in the last chapter, he rose with him, and prepered to be^in his journey > homeward. George having declared that he was not at all tired of bearing I his stories about Napoleon, he again returned to the subject. " You would have thought, George, that Napoleon would have boon glad of a rest after all his fatigues with his army in Italy ; but no, he was not one of the idle ones. He was not long at home before he began to be tired of doing nothing. What a man he might have been had he only tried to turn his activity in the right direc tion ! How much good he might have done to his fellow-creatures! Un fortunately, however, he took more pleasure in war, than anything else ; for he resolved to c...
FAINTING BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 August 1861
FAINTING BY THE WAY, BY HENRY KENDALL. SWARTHY wastelands, wide and woodless, glittering miles and miles away, Where the south wind seldom wanders, and the winters will not stay ; Lurid wastelands, pent in silence, thick with hot and thirsty sighs, Where the scanty thorn-leaves twinkle, with their haggard hopeless eyes ; Furnaced wastelands, hunched with hillocks, like to stony billows rolled, Where the naked flats lie swerling, like a sea of darkened gold ; Burning wastelands, glancing upwards with a weird and vacant stare, Where the languid heavens quiver, o'er red depths of stirless air ! " Oh ! my brother, I am weary of this wildering waste of sand, In the noontide we can never travel to the promised land! Lo I the desert broadens round us, glaring wildly in my face, With long leagues of sunflame on it-O ! the barren, barren place. See! behind us gleams a green plot: shall we thither turn and rest, Till a cool wind flutters over, till the Day is down the west ? I would follow bu...
