Hydropathy. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Hydropathy. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) OF all the various systems of medicine of -medical treatment, that which is termed Hydropathy or the Water Treatment, seems to me to be the most rational. In this brief account of "Cold Water Cures," I do not mean to enter into the details of the modus operandi of the system, but just in a few simple remarks try to impress upon the readers of the ' Band of Hope,' that great benefit is to be derived from the frequent us$ of cold water-not only to the drunken man on the intemperate man-or even the mail who only takes one glass a day, but even to the sick, the poor, the wretched, and, in one word, the great family of human beings-s even to all these I add, Cold water is a boon. Yes, the sick brother or the stricken dowti. sister may find relief in this medicine. No bad effects will remain, to torture and vex the sick patient after his recovery-but a clear skin, a healthy complexion, and a body free from pain will be the reward for adopt ing cold wate...

GOLD DUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
GOLD BUST. You earrv gunpowder about you; oh, take heed of sparks. True repentance is a drop out of the eye of faith. Where affliction is heavy, sin is light. Sin brought' death into the world, and no thing but death will carry sin out. Denials, in love, are better than grants in anger. Thou shalt not smoke. Spirituous liquors destroy more lives than the sword. Tobacco is one of the most virulent poisons in nature. The miser is a friend to none, but a bitter enemy to himself. Affairs must suffer when recreation is pre 1 ferred to business.
Which will you have? Wine or Oranges? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Which will you have? Wine or Oranges? A GENTLEMAN, who had two fine little boys, the one a year older than the other, wished to see whether Wine was good for their health, he agreed to make the following 'experiments upon them, to satisfy his own mind and that of others. Every day after dinner he gave to one of them a small glass of port wine, and to the other an orange, this was continued for a month ; at the end of that time, the child who had received the oranges was as plump and well as ever^ while the one who had the wine had grown pale, dark under the eyes, and his appetite nearly gone. Be rig thus far satisfied he reversed the aLowaiioe, the on6 who had the wine received the otange, and his brother the wine; the change was soon evident; the one that had suffered through drinking the wine recovered his former good looks within a month, but the color had fled from his brother's cheeks: the wine had stolen^,il$ffray, and he looked as sickly as- his brother did a month before.
Are you kind to your Mother? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Are you kind to your Mother ? WHO guarded you> iri health, and com forted you when ill ? Who hung oyer your little bed when you were fretful, and put the cooling drink to your parched lips? Who taught you how to pray, and gently helped you to learn to read? Who has borne with your faultsand been kind and patient in your childish ways ? Who loves you still, and who contrives and works and pray3 for you every day you live ? Is it not your mo ther, your own dear mother ? Now let me ask you, are you kind to your mother ?
BIBLE QUESTIONS. ABSTINENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
BIBLE QUESTIONS. ABSTINENCE. - Where is the use of-wine first forbidden iH the Bible 1 COVETOUSNESS. . What was the name of the young man men tioned in Scripture, who kept part of the'spoil of a conquered city, contrary to God's com mand, buried it in the earth, and suffered the punishment of a dreadful death for hia crime ? To the Editor qf the Band of Hope Review# SIR,-Having seen Bible questions in your columns, I take the liberty of asking the fol lowing one.-In the twentieth chapter of John's Gospel we read :-'Jesus said unto her* touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father.' And in the twenty-seventh verse, we read :-.' Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust jt into my side.' Now the question is this -During the eight days that elapsed between the circum stances recorded in these verses, did the body of Our Blessed Lord undergo any change 1 bELL lilltD.
The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
The Glass of Gin. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 86.) " So, this is what I'll do with it then.'' As she spoke thus, the besotted woman swept suet and frfiit into the hearth with a deliberate hand, pushed the table back with an infuriated look, and half striking Alice, half dragging the chair from be neath her, sat down upon it before the fire. She had sat thus in sottish apathy, per haps an hour, without moving or speak ing, when turning suddenly round she saw Alice weeping on a chair hard by. "So you're crying!" she said, with a laugh; and with this -she rose, and fiercely bid her to get to bed. Afraid of an altercation, and thus making the miserable sorrow known, Alice complied, but what sleep, or even rest could there be, with such a sorrow even in the very chamber ?--a sorrow not to be shut out but one recognised by all the senses. Rest I It is desecration to name this sweetest right of nature, in the remotes^ relation to such a scene! For if there be a hell on earth-if there be one form ...
Happy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 29 March 1856
Happy Kernes. LEt it be our object to multiply the number of virtuous and happy homes. The domestic Kearth is the seed-plot of a noble and flourish ing commonwealth. All laws are vicious, all tendencies are to be deprecated which in crease the difficulty of diffusing through every rank the refined and holy influences which are cherished by the domestic affec tions. Keckless speculations among capital its, disturbing the steady and uniform course of employment, and its sure counterpart, improvidence and debauchery amongst work men-are the deadliest fees to the household virtues. In how small a compass lie all the elements of man's true happiness. If society were on\y conducted in a rational and mode rate spirit, and its members of every class could be restrained from vicious indulgence and the pursuit of phantoms. A marriage contracted with thought fulness, and cemented by pure and faithful love, when a fixed posi tion is gained in the world, and a small fund his been accumulated - h...

LIFE LET US CHERISH. H. L. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
IffFE LET US CHERISH. H. L. LIFE let us cherish While yet the vapotir flows, -? And the taper nourish While yet it glows. Why should we drink the poisoned eup 1 Or why its venomed juices sup ] That takes Che roses from our cheek That steals OUT health away. Life let us cherish, *&c. Our life will be b*t short, And health-is only frail, And we feel we ought To prize them alway. We'll see around us thousands fall# And to us they seem to call, And bid us banish far away, The drink that slays them all. Life let ufc cherish, &c. We will its scares defy, And trample on its power, We will on God rely For the victory. It shall not round us weave its charms, We'll Sleep not in its treach'rous arms, We'll burst its chains, and always say Away! away I away! Life let us cherish, &c. Why am intoxication like a wash bowl? asked sambo. Cause it am de ba?in.
TWENTY REASONS FOR ABSTAINING, FROM INTOXICATING DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
TWENTY REASONS FOR .ABSTAINING, FROM'INTOXICATING DRINKS. 1. Because ale, beer, forter, cider, wine, rum, gin, and brandy, contain a portion of spirit, which is calculated to injure the human system. 2. Because none of thtse drinks, as an ha bitual beverage, ar« ever useful, b*t always injurious, to persons in health. 8. Because drunkennesi is a besetting sin, and leads to idleness, gambling, swearing, fighting, stealing, adultery, murder, and al most every other sin, and, finally, to eternal misery. 4. Because drinking produces poverty, domestic miserf, insolvency, bankruptcy, destruction of property, loss of reason, disease, and premature death. 5. Beoause a great deal of valuable land, time, labour, and capital, are worse than wasted, upon making, vending, and using these intoxicating drinks. 6. Because many millions of money are annually expended upon these drinks, which might be laid out in food and the manufac tares of the country. 7. Because several millions of good grain are...
A Drunkard's Teacher. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
A Drunkard's Teacher. A PIOUS and kind-hearted lady, who employed a decent widow to wash in her house,- was in the habit of giving her, not a cup of tea or coffee, but a glass of whisky, when she was wet and weary with her work. Time wore on, and at length the lady found to her distress that the poor widow had fallen into habits of drinking. At length she c*sfc her off; bat learning some years afterwards that she was dying, she felt called upon to visit her* and, while doing her all kind ness, to set her sin before her. She did so ; and the wretched woman closed the confession of "her guilt by asking 'And do you know, Ma^am, who taught me to drink?' 'No,' replied the visitor^ 'but it was cruelly done,' and in- saying so, she had sharpened an arrow for her own heart. Reminding her of her mistaken kindness'-*It was you,' said the dying woman; 'and it was thus I. learnt a habit which has been my ruin, which has ruined my poor children, perhaps my poor soul for ever.'

Obedience. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
Obedience. A BOY was once tempted by some of his companions to pluck some rip* cherries from a tree which his father had forbidden him to take. You need not be afraid, said they, for if your father should find out that you had them, he is so kind that he will not hurt you. That is the very reason, replied the boy^why I should not touch them. It is true, my father may not hurt me, yet my disobedience, I know, would hurt my father, and that would be worse to me than anything else. An excellent reason.
