Poetry. GOD BLESS THEE! [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 23 May 1857
GOD BLESS THEE! I Her eyes were eyes that melt in love, My sister's voice was soft and low, And lips that never oped to blame, And hands that still'd the throbbing brow ; And ever with her " Good night " came My sister's sweet a God bless thee." I sought the tavern's reeking den, And drained the cup till reason fled ; All gentler thoughts I spurned then, And welcomed devils in their stead. She met me with her own fond smile, And whisper'd " May God bless thee." I herded with a gambling crew, Joined hands with that infernal host ; I staked her life upon a throw, Then turned, and found the die had lost. I met her, and she knew the cost, Yet murmur'd still, "God bless thee." " Why are the worthless thus beloved ?" I raised my desperate hands and cried ; And " Who shall save the drunken sot ?" She held my arm and sweet leplied, " Who loves, he reasons not," Then kiss'd and bade God bless me. Her face was pale, her eyes were dim, She lay npon the bed of death ; Mine was the hand that bro...

Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 23 May 1857
JjMtrg üarbntr. (Continued from page 149.) " You will recollect when you first knew ' me that I very seldom drank wine or any other strong drink-in fact, I almost disliked it ; and you will also recollect, Mr. Tucker," added he, with consider able warmth, " that you first tempted me into excess, and laughed at the absurd nonsense which I practised when my reason was temporarily gone, lead ing me rather to take a pride in afterwards talking of my folly to my companions, instead of being thoroughly ashamed of myself for my disgraceful and sinful conduct. I soon acquired a liking for wine (though I could not then drink spirits), and after a time I could drink with impunity twice the quantity which at one time would have intoxi cated me. I recollect once over-hearing Dr. Ball say to you at one of your evening ' bachelor parties,' (as you used to call them,) that I was a ' first rate fellow' when I was 'half-seas over,' and you laughed and pressed me to sing a bacchanalian song which you...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 23 May 1857
BT T. S. ARTHUR. ( Continued from page 157.) AND now Morgan and his wife are alone with their sick child. Higher the fever rises, and partial delirium seizes upon her over-excited brain. She talks for a time almost incessantly. All her trouble is about her father ; . and she is constantly referring to his promise not to go out in the evening until she gets well. How tenderly and touchingly she appeals to him ; now looking up into his face in partial recognition ; and now calling anxiously after him, as if he had left her and was going away. "You'll not forget your promise, will you, father?!' she says, speaking go calmly that he thinks her mind has ceased to wrander. "No, dear; I will not forget it," he answers, smoothing her hair gently with his hand. " You'll not go out in the evening again, until I get well ?" "No, dear." "Father!" "What, love?" " Stoop down closer ; I don't want mother to hear ; it will make her feel so bad." The father bends his ear close to the lips of Mary. H...

Ç^I^VE were much pleased a few days ago while perusing a daily contemporary ií¡Jl£v to light upon a passage quoted from a provincial paper, in which the poems of a Mr. HARPUR were reviewed, clearly putting as one of the grounds of recommendation, the very thoughts we have been laying before our readers on the subject of a colonial literature. And perhaps to a reflective mind there might be much matter for thought in the fact of two journals at the same time taking up a topic for discussion, which is far removed from the exciting arena of party politics. "We concluded our last paper by stating as clearly as we could the very arguments which some of our opponents when pestered by our appeals to national feeling tersely and gruffly put as clenching the whole matter-Europe slightly aided by America, may as well do our thinking. We also admitted the force of this reply to some considerable extent ; but asserted it was not sufficient to meet the necessities of the case looked at from the ...

SURRY HTT.T.S. a riclay, May 29.-Mr. Druery delivered a lecture on Hydraulics, explaining clearly the means of ob taining water from a great depth, from great distances, to any required height or position, by various kinds of pumps. The lecturer also explained how large ships can be lifted several feet, when on the stocks, not by the tedious old plan of wedges, involving great and expensive labour, but by simple water pressure, called Hydraulic power. This has been done in a short time to ships of 900 tons, at the Patent Slip of the] Australasian Steam Navigation Company, Pyrmont.

THE INTOXICATING DRINKS MANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
THE INTOXICATING DRINKS MANIA. The following letter on the excessive or immoderate use of spirits has been addressed by Dr. Nicolls, Medical Officer, Longford Union, to the Lunatic Asylum Commissioners of Ireland: " I beg respectfully to request your attention to a species of madness which (though not legally recognised as such) has led to more individual and family destruction than any other form of insanity I have met with in an extensive practice of more than 20 years, 16 of them as medical officer to this workhouse. The mania I allude to is an insane and irresistible desire for intoxicating drinks, induced by an over-indulgence in fermented or distilled liquors. I could, if necessary, give many, very many, most dis tressing instances of the sad effects of his madness, not confined to the humbler classes, but extending to men of high professional attainments and intellectual superiority-not even to those, but to ladies of superior edu cation and family connexion. It occurs to me ...

Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. i i A CHEAP evening's entertainment (6d.) was advertised by this society, and came off at the School of Arts, on Thursday, May 28. A new series of dissolving views were exhibited by Mr. Crouch of the most elaborate and complicated description. Owing to want of a more intense light in the lanterns, and some trifling incomplete ness in the arrangements, which Mr. Crouch explained, the views were far from being clear and distinct. The Buckingham Family, who were to have Fung songs appropriate to the scenes as they passed,reserved their part of the entertainment till the conclusion of the exhibition, when a number of pieces were sung and played by this talented family, evidently to the satis faction and delight of all present. Upon one of the Secretaries of the society attempting to make an apology for the views, the audience, in a most marked manner, expressed the feeling that it was entirely unnecessary. About 700 were present.

Poetry. THE DRAPERS' ASSISTANTS' HUMBLE APPEAL TO THE LADIES OF SYDNEY, TO ALLOW THEM TO CEASE BUSINESS AT SIX O'CLOCK, INSTEAD OF ELGHT OR NINE O'CLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
THE DRAPERS' ASSISTANTS' HUMBLE APPEAL To THE LADIES OP SYDNEY, TO ALLOW THEM TO CEASE BUSINESS AT SIX O'CLOCK, INSTEAD OF ELGHT OR NINE O'CLOCK. IN this glad age, when moral progress reigns, And warm philanthropists no efforts spare To lessen misery's many woes and pains, We'll tell our woes, and trust we'll pity share. To whom can we with such bright hopes appeal, And on their generous aid our grievance rest ? Ah! where does sympathy and kindness dwell So warmly as in lovely woman's breast? Dear ladies of this happy, favoured land! With hearts as warm as our bright summer's sun, Let th i s appeal your sy m path ies command: Unite to aid us, and our aim is won! Pardon our freedom whilst we urge our plea, Think not this act presumptuous nor bold; With much respect and deep humility We crave your ear, while we? our tale unfold. The greatest pride and happiness we feel, In waiting with obedience your com mands ; And we will use our utmost efforts still 'Tis but what your kind patronag...
