HORACE GILMORE. A LEAF FROM A PHYSICIAN'S NOTE-BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
HORACE GIL MORE. A LEAP FROM A .PHYSICIAN'S NOTE-BOOK. H SOME years ago I was called upon to visit a patient, at one of the largest hotels of the city. I met the gentleman, of course, as a stranger, but a physician comes as a friend to the bedside of the suffering, and I soon found myself more deeply interested in this young man than often happens to me in the course of my practice. He told me he was dying of consump tion, and I could well believe it when I looked upon his worn and emaciated frame, listened to his hurried and irregular breathing, the cough that con vulsed his whole physical frame, at short intervals, and saw the color come and go at every exertion. But it was not these common symp toms of that insidious and incurable disease that interested me. Had they been all, I should certainly have exerted my skill to render comfortable the short remainder of a life I had no power to prolong, and those efforts would have ended the duties and cares imposed by our physician and p...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 May 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEK. (Continued from page 176.) UPON again reaching Glasgow, many of the tourists returned by way of Liverpool, amongst these Bertha and the stranger. It was a cold, wet autumn night when the passengers landed, and the larger part sought the shelter of inns or the homes of friends. But hailing a cab, Bertha requested to be driven to one of the railway stations, so as to be in time for the London up-train of that night. On leaving the vessel she had thanked her three weeks friend for his courtesy, and bidden him good-bye, to which, as he sat lost in thought, he briefly replied, so that now to her suprise she saw him stay the cab as it was about to be driven away, and approaching he leant upon the door. ' Excuse my abrupt farewell. Miss Fleming,' he said, ' it was purposely made so to cover the pain I feel, and was moreover meant for the same reason to be the last, but this resolve I have not forti tude to carry out. Your journey and mine are the same, but it ...

WHO ARE OUR CRIMINALS! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
WflO ARE OUR CRIMINALS ! The melancholy relation beetween drunkenness and crime emphatically attested by the JVew Fork Obsercer. It states that-' During the la>t quarter ot" a year the police of this city have made 17,:v28 arrests of persons charged with crime. Of the whole number arrested 2, 954 wese natives of the United States, 10,377 of Ireland 1,621 of Germany, (3 )5 of England. Out of the whole number of persons arretted 12,038 are said to have used intoxicating liquors to excess. We wish that this statement might bo yu'^ishrd in every journal in Eurooe. If it were not for our foreign population we should have less crime than any other people. A,id see whit strong drink does? If this were banished, what a reform would be wrought. Foreign emigration and the use of intoxicating liquors fill our pri-ons and almshouses. On he doings of rum it may not be out of place here to add the testimony of a tavern keeper in liennalaer county, New York, who has abandoned the traffic in liq...
INTELLIGENCE. ASYLUMS FOR THE INEBRIATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
INTELLIGENCE. ASYLUMS FOR THE INEBRIATE. A highly creditable nhilanthronic experiment "has been in augurated at Ne* York. The f u da tion of an asylum intended for the cure and re formation of inebriates has just been laid at Binghampton, Many distinguished men have given to the movement the weight of their names. A handsome fund has already been raised for the completion of the building, "and a large benefac tion in money is expected from the State. A law is contemplated appropriating to the support of the institution a portion of the money received for the licences for the sale of spirituous liquors. Many physicians believe that intemperance is a disease which is curable with the proper means. An opportunity to test the theory is now about to be afforded.
LINES FOR MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
LINES FOR MUSIC. + OF beauty's spells in other lands, no more than oft sung strain, No more of the Italian's charms-or sun-burnt girls of Spain, Nor yet of merry England's maids, whate'er may be their powers. There is no land beneath the sun which can compare with ours. Then sing to beauty if you will, but never wish to roam, Sing to Australia's lovely ones-our own fair maids at home ! Fair as the land which they adorn, and b right as are its skies, They bear its freshness in their hearts, its sunshine in their eyes. And like a halo every charm, encircles them around, M igic in every motion still, and music in each: sound, Then sing to beauty if you will, but never wish, to roam, Sing to Australia's lovely ones-our own fair maids at home ! Strike the glad lute! those sunny smiles, might wake Apollo's lyre Happy in native beauty's wiles disdain more distant fire, Let dreamers dream of far off lands, and unseen beauties sing, In praise of our Australian fair, we'll make the welkin rin...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. DEAR MR. EDITOR,-Don't scold me for not writing last week, for it, was not my fault. I r-01>v send you the fashions, which of course will pr°ve acceptable to your lady friends. Dresses composed of silk of two different colors I may mention as one of the latest novelties. A dress recently made in this new style is so pretty in effect that it deserves special notice. The skirt is of black silk, and two bands of violet-colourecl silk, running in undulating lines, descend from the waist down each side of the skirt, graduating in width and diverging one from the other until they unite with a very broad band of violet silk which edges the bottom of the skirt. Between the two waving bands, which form a tablier, there are fixed ornaments of black lace, having in the centre of each a rosette of violet ribbon. The corsage is divided into two distinct parts. The under part, of black silk, is shaped like a low cor sage, and is pointed at the upper edge, in front, in the Swiss ...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 192.) 'MRS. SPRINGFIELD,' he said, address ing her in a voice expressive of the utmost anger, for by the light of the lamp which burnt he could detect the leer of triumph which sat upon her vicious countenance, ' why have you come again, against my express wish to the contrary. Why give Sara drink when you know the effect it has upon her; and why aid her to escape from the house, when you are aware what her conduct is-even at the best-' 11 have a purpose in everything I do; in this matter it is to annoy you. Take her home-take her where she has a right to he-and I will cease.' ' Never !' he said firmly, ' never! At present it is reputable, with her as mis tress it never was.' ' Why did you marry her, then ? I did not ask you.' ' I know it; but you otherwise deceiv ed me as to her age, her sanity, her habits. The old man her uncle, who a,s you know was senior partner in the firm, asked me to take pity upon Sara and marry her, the mor...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. THE CHILD WITNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. THE CHILD WITNESS. IN one of our courts, a little girl, nine years of age, was brought forward as a witness against a prisoner, who was on his trial for felony committed in her father's house. 'Now,' said the counsel for the prisoner, *1 desire to know if you understand the nature of an oath?' * I don't know what you mean,' was the simple answer. 'There, my lord,' said the counsel, addressing the Bench, 'is anything fur ther necessary to demonstrate the validity of my objection ? She d^es not compre hend the nature of an oath.' . Let us see,' said the Judge. ' Attend, my child.' Assured by the kind tone and manner of the Judge, the child turned toward him, and looked confidingly up in his j face, with a calm, clear eye, in a manner so artless and frank, that it went straight to the heart. ' Did you ever take an oath ?' inquired the Judge. The little girl stepped back with a look of horror, and the red blood mantled in a blush all over her face and neck, as she ...
CHAPTER, XVIII. LIDDY AT SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
CHAPTER, XVIII. LIDDY AT SCHOOL. Though he knew he should miss his darling when he came home of an even ing, Norman very anxiously pressed Liddy's departure to Hoplow school-his le-ser reason being, that he wished to see if she liked it before his arid his wife's return to town-and his greater, that of perceiving John Halton's growing and undisguised liking, and the zeal with which his mother sought to make the attachment reciprocal. But beyond playing childlike with John riding the donkey he brought home for her, enjoy ing a game of hide and seek with him and Tom about the orchard and work shop, or going walks with him into the fields to get flowers, Liddy had neither taste, nor indeed comprehension, and where his ostentions teased her, as they soon did, even these childish pleasures were abridged. It was thus quite plain to see, that though John Halton was worthy, industrious, and likely to be a prosperous man, and however much his mother might wish that Liddy should in time becom...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. LIBERTY, AND THE AUTHORS OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
%\i Australian ponm (Sompmuim, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. LIBERTY, AND THE AUTHORS OP IT. NAPOLEON the Third, sitting in his imperial palace, hears the sigh of the Italian patriots down-trodden under the hoof of the conquering foreigner, and yearns to set them free. This is edifying. These laments for lost liberty, and these passionate desh*es to restore it, sit so becomingly on the author of the coup d' etat, and the de portations to Cayenne. Alexander the Great, we are told, sat down and wept because there were no more worlds to conquer. Oar modern Alexander, whose 4 Empire is peace,' having so completely restored liberty to France that nothing more remains to be done, pines for other and wider spheres of action on which to display, with still greater distinction, his splendid talent for making nations happy. Casting his eye abroad over Europe, to find fame for himself and occupation for his half-million soldiers-all eager for excitement, plunder, and promotion-he sees Lombardy kep...
MUSIC IN TAVERNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
MUSIC IN TAVERNS. To the Editor of THE HOME COMPANION. SIR,-Hailing as I do with unfeigned pleasure the advent of thj 'Feast of Reason' so vividly brought to my mind lately on the occasion of the celebration of the opening of the New Temperance Hall, of the New South Wales Alliance for the Suppression of Intemperance, I c nnot resist (although in no way connected with your truly philantrophic association,) from offering a few observations. The subject of which I most fervently hope, when treated by abler pens than mine, may ultimately tend to the suppression of one of the most baneful of the attractions now exist ing to entice men into public-houses. The attraction t> "which I allude is (when under proper control and not abused) one which exerts its enchanting influence oyer all.-from the prince to the peasant, and even the sage would not hesitate occasionally to admit its power pleasurably to di&tract him from his more deep and philosophical researches ; of course the po...
THE POVERTY OF WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
THE POVERTY OP WEALTH. . I CANNOT hold out much longer, I am exhausted.' ' Come on, what use in lying here to die-you should have stayed behind-I warned you of these perils.' 4 You warned me not; you said the path was intricate, but was I to linger on in hopeless captivity rather than make an effort to be free?' The speakers were two men of about forty years, whose appearance was rough in the extreme ; each bore an expression of severe suffering-the sunken eye-the rigid muscles of the face-and the hard breathing betokened the acuteness of their pain. They had been for two weeks pressing through the bush, by the most unfrequented paths, avoiding mankind, subsisting upon such provisions as the}r had been able to carry with them. In fact, they had escaped from prison; they were both hardened criminals, but by the aid of friends they had succeeded in leaving their bondage and now were in pursuit of gold. Peters, the elder of the two, was acting as guide, he having been on a rich mine so...
WORK SOME GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
WORK SOME GOOD. OH, work some good, for every man Can help to make a reformation; No matter -who or what he be, Of high degree or lowly station, Set on thy mind to work a change ; Be firm and break the coward's fetter, 'Tis always easy to do bad, But quite as easy to do better. Choose for thy task a noble one For noble thoughts will find their lev e L And good must come from them at last For nothing good can bring forth evil Work oil, though slow thy progress he Yet proudly keep thyself from sinking I If hands will not perforin the task. Go hack and have recourse to thinking, Begin thy work with steady brains, Nor hurry on thy inclination, No house was built within a day That did not soon want alteration. Work on and do the best you can, 'Twill be a hint to many a brother, Thy recompense will surely come, For one bright action brings another. T.

FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. I'LL VOTE FOR THE OTHER MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. I'LL VOTE FOR THE OTHER MAN. THE following story is told of a Revolutionary soldier, who was running for Congress : It appears that he was opposed by a much younger man, who had never 'been to the wars,' and it was the wont of 4 Revolutionary' to tell the people of the hardship he endured. Says he : 4 Fellow citizens, I have fought and bled for my country-I helped to whip the British and Indians. I have slept on the field of battle with no other cover ing than the canopy of heaven. I have walked over frozen ground till every footstep was marked with blood.' Just about this time, one of the . sovereigns,' who had become very much affected by this tale of woe, walks up in front of the speaker, wiping the tears from his eves with the extremity of his coat tail, and interrupting him, says : 'Did you say that you fought the British and the rnjines ?' ' Yes,' responded ' Revolutionary.' . Did you say that you had slept on the ground, wit: O it any kiver, while servi...

SIGHTS AND SCENES IN SYDNEY. BY EVEKARD RVERGKEEN, THB YOUNGER, GENTLEMAN. ? NO. v.-THB PAVEMENT ON SATURDAY EVBNING. BEING-like a policeman and the ghost in Hamlet, 'Dooaied for a certain time to walk the night,' I have rare opportunities of making carious observations; and, of course, if I am not lazy, of committing the record of them to paper. Let no one, however, presume to assume that this necessity for nocturnal ramble on my part arises frotn the fact of my being a detective or a fast young man-or a swain that needs must sigh unsolaced under a case ment-or any mysterious character what ever. A person of quieter habits or more prosy daily employments, it would be hard to find. No one seeing me in my business den, would ever fancy that I played occasionally with golden sun shine-the specimen you see on a fine Aus tralian evening-ever infancy followed shifting shadows-ever wrote sonnets full &lt;£ love and moonshine. Just imagine a cell, 4 six-by-eight' - an overgrown wri...
NOTE FROM A FRIENDLY HAND. TO PETER RUBYGILL, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 May 1859
NOTE FROM A FRIENDLY HAND. TO PETER RUBYGILL, ESQ. MY Dkak PEIEK,-May I, by a friend ship of ihirty years' growth, be permit ted to address you on your faults-or rather, your fault ? for it is so capacious th,at it swaliows every other error ; in the same way that boa constrictors gulp toads and other unsightly creatures of smaller growth; may I venture to re monstrate with you on - well it must be said-your habitual drunkenness ? Alas ! my friend, to what a condition has this folly, this wickedness, reduced you ! This morning only, I saw a full-grown cucumber in a bottle : there is nothing in the object; it is common-place, to be seen in the window of every pickle merchant, and yet did that imprisoned cucumber touch my heart, and bring pathetic mois ture into my eyes ; for by the tyranny of association, it made me think of my forlorn friend. Yes; looking at that cucumber, trained to grow in its glass prison, did I behold in it the hopeless condition of Peter Rubygill. There he is, ...
