HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
HEALTH. SIR Astley Cooper states that the measures he employed for preserving his own health were temperance, early rising, and sponging the body witn cold water every i J morning, immediately after rising. He says he adopted this latter practice for thirty years ; and though he went from the hot lecture room of the hospital into the open air in the coldest nights in win ter, yet he scarcely ever took cold. i
MODERATION; [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
MODERATION ; That is, the allowance of TWO QUARTS of Wine to each guest at a Public Dinner lately held in the School of Arts, Sydney. Come, fill up your glasses, in bumpers o'erflowing, And pledge us in " heel taps " of wine rich and rare There s no lack of nectar, "which sets our hearts glowing Two quarts are apportioned as every man's share. Our sires quaffd brown ale, and were right stalwart yeomen ; Who so famous as they at the sword, plough, or flail ? Then let's toast their exploits on theiT farms or with fbemen, While we talk of guano, pigs, turnips, and kale. Moderation's our motto-fill up the last glass Let pale-faced teetotallers sneer or repine. Drink health to the stewards, who all praise surpass* For their careful allowance of two quart* of wine « 3 AQUA. Sydney, 1st June.
SOCIETIES FOR DESERTED CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
SOCIETIES FOR DESERTED CHILDREN. JNuMEEOus advertisements, as well as frequent but brief appeals, have been made of late on behalf of deserted children through the colonial journals. We have, therefore, been induced to speak more plainly upon the subject through our columns. The most careless observer in walking through our streets cannot have failed to have had occular demonstration that a voice in behalf of the orphan and the deserted child is loudly called for. In a young country like Australia so grave a subject cannot too speedily meet the public eye, nor, if needs be, claim the attention of Government. That any child should be destitute in a " land flowing with milk and honey "-where labour is so well remunerated where wealth so extravagantly abounds, may at first sight seem paradoxical. Such a fact, however, is beyond question, and can only be accounted for by those fixed laws of nature that have existed from the beginning of time. Everything in this world must be comparative...
"SALE OF LIQUORS GENERAL LICENSING ACT OF 1859." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
" SALE OF LIQUORS GENERAL LICENSING- ACT OF 1859." g£UCH is to be the title of a Bill now passing through the colonial legisla 2n) ture, and which it is proposed shall come into operation next New Year's Day. We have neither space nor would it befit the spirit of our JOURNAL to criticise every clause of the Bill ; but against one clause, which proposes to open our taverns every Sunday evening from eight to ten o'clock, as temperance reformers and Christians, we feel bound to protest. Certainly this measure of the Publicans-for it is manifestly the result of their influence -is one of the most bare-faced and shameless attempts ever made to disturb the Sabbath peace and home welfare of any community. When the general spirit of modern legislation tends more and more to repress the pernicious traffic which corrupt tastes will not permit entirely to be prohibited, it does raise one's indignation to think that self-interested parties should thus step in and at one sweep try to break down ...
The Children's Portfolio. A RAT'S TALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
%\t Cjjikttt's Jorffolw. A RAT'S TALE. . i -w-v 1 » » .TH«" T 1 . " JÜEAR, dear, saia mrs. dentins, as she held up the cheese to view, *l those dreadful rats have been nib bling away at this cheese again." " Yes, ma'am," said Mary, " and here's the candle almost eaten up by them. We shan't be able to keep anything in the house soon, but I'll get a trap and see what will come of that." The trap was bought, and a nice choice bit of cheese having been put in to tempt the rat to enter, it was placed in the cupboard. W hen all was quiet without, a little rat went into the cupboard, sniffing his way as usual to the choicest morsels. At last he jumped back squeaking, his nose had knocked against the wire of the trap. " Oh, Oh !" said he, " What's this ?" and he walked round and round the trap, carefully surveying it up and down, not without peeping into the inside, and then turned round and ran away to his old mother, to tell her of the beautiful îïome he had discovered. " Mother, mother, ...
ANTI-SUNDAY LIQUOR SELLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
ANTI-SUNDAY LIQUOR SELLING. A large and influential meeting was held at the School of Arts last Thursday evening, to protest against the attempt on the part of the publicans to promote immorality and vice on the Sabbath evening, by opening their houses from eight till ten o'clock. Thomas Holt, Esq. took the chair, and the meeting was ad dressed by several ministers and gentle men. A petition to both houses was signed by the chairman on behalf of the meeting-, one of which was to be presented last evening, as the bill was then to be read a second time.
Selections. FIXED FACTS IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
BtlttÛBM. FIXED FACTS IN AGRICULTURE. I 1. ALL lands on which clover or other grasses are sown, must either have lime in them naturally, or that mineral must be artificially supplied. It matters hut little whether it be supplied in the form of stone lime, oyster lime, or marl. 2. All permanent improvements of lands must look to lime as its basis. 3. No lands can be preserved in a high state of fertility unless clover and the grasses are cultivated in the course of rotation. 4. Mould is indispensable in every soil, and a healthy supply can only be preserved through the cultivation of clover and the grasses, the turning in of green crops, or by the application of composts, rich in the elements of the best mould.
The Household. PURE AIR IN BEDROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
PUEE AIR IN BEDROOMS. i PURE air is essential to health, and at night the free supply of it is of especial moment. Each sleeper draws into the chest, about fifteen times every minute, a certain quantity of the surrounding at mosphere, and returns it, after a change within the body, mixed with a poison. One hundred and fifty grains by weight, of this poisonous ingredient are added to the air of a bedroom, in one hour, hy a single sleeper; more than one thousand during the night. Unless there be a sufficient quantity of air to dilute this, or unless ventilation provide for a gradual removal of foul air, while fresh comes to take its place, health must be seriously undermined. Dr. Hunter states, in his work on the " Diseases of the Throat and Lungs," that impure arr alone will bring j on consumption in the strongest consti tution. The oxygen of the air we breathe ' regulates our appetite, and, to the weight of the grain, the nutriment that is built np in the system. The chyle undergoes...
The Rev. Thomas Binney. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
C|Í %á. Cromas IJrrateg. À CURIOUS incident occurred, some sixteen or eighteen years since,* illus trative of the peculiar manner of Mr. Binney. When preaching in a chapel near London^ delivering a charge to the people, on the ordination of their minister, he made some apparently irrelevant remarks upon the duty of Christian courtesy in the Temple of God, commenting upon the frequent inattention in allowing persons to stand in a place of worship, when there was room near at hand in the pews. And he would cite, he said, an instance from his own experience. He was preaching, he said, in a chapel not over-crowded, and in one of the aisles of the chapel stood a young woman, apparently not too strong or robust) leaning upon a pew in which were only two young men-only two young men-and would you believe it, said the preacher) there they sat, and never opened the pew door for that young woman-there was no oc casion for them to vacate their seat, although that might not have been too much i...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
(Continued from page VIS.) Brrr we will change this horrible picture, and for the sake ©f brevity, draw a veil over the fearful sufferings which Henry endured for the ensuing six weeks, during which time he was kept closely confined in the Prison Hospital, ia Sydney, from whence he at length emerged, a shattered wreck of his former self. Weak, pale, emaciated, affrighted at his awn shadow, he had scarcely strength to walk to the jetty in the cove off which lay Mr. Golding's little vessel, with her sails hoisted, ready to start for the - River. Mr. Golding had kindly instructed the master of his vessel to call at the Prison and make inquiries -after Henry's health, and as soon as he heard that he was convalescent, he generously invited him to bis house. Henry thankfully accepted his friend's kind offer, and overjoyed at being re leased from his gloomy confinement, he made his way on board the vessel, and the next day he arrived at Mr. Golding's residence, where he received a cordial ...
When to Marry. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
IL MEN should not marry/' it is com monly said, " unless they can main tain for themselves the social position to which tiley have been accustomed, and extend the benefits of that posi tion to their wives and children. A j woman who marries is entitled to be ! kept m the same rank and comfort in which she was reared." But-- this is not true philosophy. It should be « . Í the aim of every married couple to make their own fortunes. No son and daughter, who become man and wife, are entitled to rely on their patrimony, " but should willingly commence life at a lower step in the social ladder than that occupied by their parents, so that they may have the merit and happi ness of rising, if possible, to the top. Imagine the case of an aged couple, who, by great perseverance, have ac quired the possession of immense wealth and are living in style, ease, and splendour, which is no more than the reward of their long life of indus try. Will anybody say tliat the chil dren of such " old folks1'...

Scenes from a Life Drama. BY THE AUTHORESS OF "GERTRUDE." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
Bttms hm a fife granta. BY THE AUTHORESS OP " GERTRUDE." (Concluded from page 169.) iHE puDiic nouse at tue comer was crowded. There was a dazzling glare ¡ of lamps, and a fire burned in the tap room grate ; several persons were sing ing, evidently from the style, they were the " professionals " of such . localities ; in a group of political dispu tants I recognised Doctor Willoughby, essaying to address the assembly on the rights of the people. I made my way to him, and touching his arm whispered, " Annie is ill, come home." He was too much absorbed in his oration to heed me, and repeated shakes were requisite to attract his attention, then in bewilderment he pronounced my name, while bis companions rudely stared at the grave intruder. " Come home, Annie is ill-perhaps dying !" Me took up his hat, muttered some thing about having looked in to see a sick child, as if explanatory of his presence there, and accompanied me. The cool air and a shower of rain perhaps only added to the me...
CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
CHAPTER VI. Group after group glide on with noiseless tread, And round the accustomed spot with pleasure I meet, Where holy though*s in infant hearts are bred, A nd holy words their ruby lips repeat Oft with a chastened glance in modulation sweet. MKS. SIGODBNKT. Rouse to some work of high and holy lore, And thou an angel's happiness shalt know. CARLOS WIXCOX. And now I draw the curtain, and reveal the last scene of my Life Drama which my pen shall record. Years have passed since Annie died. The afternoon wanes - a bright summer's afternoon ; rather hot and heavy masses of clouds begin to rise Above the horison, and tell of an approaching storm, and I bid several little girls who are occupied with work, or books, to lay aside their tasks and hasten home before the storm comes. The alacrity with which I am obeyed rather provokes a smile than a reproof, though I am their schoolmistress. " Shall we leave off Miss Varden?" inquired another. " No, Lucy, you have but a few steps to take t...
