PITT-STREET BAND OF HO?E. Last Wednesday week was appointed as the night for receiving the missionary collecting boxes connected with the Sabbath school. The addresses deli vered w^re calculated to encourage the children in prosecuting their commend able work. One of the speakers referred to the evils that the drinking customs of the whites produced upon the minds and characters of the natives in the va rious islands and countries where the missionaries were engaged, mentioning the circumstance of a heathen priestess, who, comparing the conduct of the hea then community, with the nomi nally Christian, said what a horrible religion the Christian religion must be, to allow men to make such beasts of themselves ; she had seen the men who came ashore from the ships that called at the island.

A Mother's Prayer. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
A Mother's Prayer. SOMB years since, a fine young man, "the only son of his mother, and she was a widow,' 011 becoming of age, and receiv* ing his patrimony, entered into company, and indulged in the dissipation of gen teel society. Her watchful eye saw his danger, pointed out its tendency to ruin of body and soul, and used every argu ment, persuasion, and entreaty, in vain. One day she learned he was to dine with* a large and jovial party, and she spent the forenoon in persuading him to relin quish it, but all in vain. 'Mother, I will go.' 'Then, John, I will retire to my closet, and pray for you, till I see your face again,' He went to the party, but could find no enjoyment; the thought of his mother being 011 her knees, wrestling with God in prayer for him, formed such a contrast to the scene bei fore him, that he slipped away-found his mother in the act of prayer-knelt down by her-fell on her neck-and from that day became the delight of his pious mother's heart; a brand rescued ...

He ruled over a great empire, and dwelt in a palace, prodigious in size, and su perb in embellishments. Amid all the glory of eastern kingdoms, there was nothing so grand. Nebuchadnezzar had conquered Jerusalem ; and among those whom he had dragged from their homes were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. They are supposed tor have been of royal extraction. In consequence of their beautiful appearance, good edu cation, and distinguished rank, they were retained as the king's personal attendants. To fit them better for the distinguished offices to which they were appointed, it was resolved to train them in all the arts of the Chaldeans, and feed them with meat and drink from the roygl. table.

PRIZE ESSAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
PRIZE ESSAY. HE idea of i contesting for a prize by a li terary scheme may seem something out of the common course'.of events to some, but to others of our readers it is no new plot, but & high and no ble means of drawing out the hidden ta lent of a community, It is a well-known fact, that every right-minded person has a talent, no matter for what, but every one has a talent for something. Persons often live very many years with the idea that they could never write a sermon, a lecture, or an essay, simply because they never tried. Let them re member that Full many a gem of purest ray serene, The dark, unfathomable caves of ocean bear; Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air. They may be unnoticed and unknown, but that does not say they are unfit for doing many things that they now believe themselves incapable of accomplishing. ' Every young man and every young woman under 21 years of age, has now an opportunity to write an essay,...

A Mother's Kiss. THERE is an affecting story told of one of our painters. When a mere child, he ran to his mother with the first drawing he had executed. She looked upon it with hope and pride, and from it to the young enthusiast, and. clasping him in her arms, stamped a kiss upon his glow ing cheek. After many years of toil, when public fame had confirmed the ex pectations of that mother's heart, he told it with tears, and exclaimed, * That kiss made me a painter!'

The Ancient Persians,—Water Drinkers. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
The Ancient Persians,-Water Drinkers. XENOPHON, speaking of their mode of training their children, says : The boys under sixteen or seven teen years of age, were required to take with them to the place of in struction, for their food, bread, with a sort of herb, much in use, to eat with it., and a cup to drink in, that if any were thirsty they might take from the river. The young men, until twenty-seven years of age, "were re stricted to the same diet. And the historian remarks, that, if any one think that they eat without pleasure, when they have this herb only for food, with their bread, and that they drink without pleasure when they drink water, let him recollect how pleasant it is to one, who is hungry to eat plain cake or bread, and how pleasant to one who is thirsty to drink water. To perpetuate by meditation the re membrance of woe, is to embalm a viper that has stung you.

I ASKED A SWEET ROBIN. HODGES REED, ESQ. Air, ' Pirates' Serenade.' I ASKfiD a sweet robin one morning in May, Who sung in the apple tree over the way, What 'twas she was singing so sweetly about, For I'd tried a long time but could not find out? Why, I'm sure, she replied, you cannot guess wrong, Don't you know I am singing a temperance song ? Teetotal-rrO, that's the first word of my lay, A.nd, then, don't you hear how I rattle away. 'Tis because I've just dipped my beak in the spring, And brushed the fair form of the lark with my wing. Cold water, cold water, yes, that is my song, And I love to keep singing it all the day long. And now my sweet Miss, won't you give me a crumb For the dear little nestlings waiting at home? And one thing beside, since my story you've heard, I hope you'll remember the lay of the bird, And never forget, whilst you list to my song, AU the birds to the cold water army belong.
GOLD DUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
GOLD DUST. ART is gained by labour and industry. A COVETOUS man is always in want. BEAUTY is commendable in some, but it ruins others. CONTENTMENT is preferable, to riches and honour. CAN they be deemed wise who counsel de spise 1 DERIDE not infirmities, nor triumph over injuries. DELIGHT in virtue's ways, and then you'll merit praise. EXAMPLE oft doth rule the wise man and the fool. FAIR words are often used to hide bad deeds. FEW do good with what they have gotten ill.

I will haye a bird next summer, and that will stay all winter. ? George, don't you remember my beau tiful canary bird ! It died in the middle of the summer, and we planted bright flowers in the ground where we buried it. My bird did not live as. long as the tree. Well, I don't see that we can love anything.

Mamma's Pet Lion. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 12 April 1856
Mamma's Pet IioH. FREDERICK JONES was the son of a rich manufacturer. His father being engrossed in business, the children were left to the care of the mother, who, being a weak woman, did not restrain thera as she ought. There were four^ but three of them died ; and Frederick, being left the only child, was indulged still more. At a very early age he showed his angry temper, and he became such a tyrant that the very dogs and cats about the house were afraid of him. Once, when he was three years old, he insisted that he would have the silver tea-urn, to drag about the room for a coach. And,because his mother would not let him do so, he seized her cap and tore it from her head. When Frederick was ten years old, he went into the kitchen, where the ser vants used to let him do as he pleased, for fear of his dreadful temper, for they used to call him MAMMA'S PET LroN, He had not been long there before he upset the table, knocked down the shovel and tongs, and broke several plates.

The child, as night came on, feared to remain in the house, lest her father, whoiif she dreaded to look upon, should come home ; and, besides this, in that miser able home, there was neither fire nor candle ; so, knowing that there was to be some sort of meeting in a large room near, Where she might have light and warmth, and a refuge from her father, the little girl went there. It was a teetotal meeting; she listened very attentively, and it happened that one of the speakers spoke of the evils of intemperance-of the misery of the drunkard's home...

The Glass of Gin. (CONTINUED PROM PAGE 100.) But if these days were mournfal ia ^ their course, the.nights were often hor rible ; and thus, with broken rest, and in a ioul and fcelid atmosphere,. Alice's ' health gradually gave way, the only light within these grim shadows closing round, being her daily.duty to her pn pils;'or el&e the fatal secret, guarded with so much care, must have bereft her of reason, or driven her to extremity.
