PARRAMATT A CHRONICLE VERSUS TEA-TOTALISM. OUR DIGEST OP LEADING ARTICLE IN THAT PAPER OF 23RD APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
PARR AM ATT A CHRONICLE VERSUS TE A-TOTA LISM. OUR DIGEST OP LEADING ARTICLE IN THAT PAPER OF 23RD APRIL. Things have come to a pass-when we can't take our glass, And get boozy in comfort and quiet; So we'll shoot a dead shot, that will shatter the nlot, Which is formin? to mizzle our diet. test the teetotal band, should quite sober the land, And doom us on water to nine; We'll lock their pump handles, the Goths and the Vandals, And prove that there's wisdom in wine. Sfaop the di vs of old Noah, and most likely before Folks fuddled-a fact undenied; Which nroves in a minute, the virtu e there's in it We've scores of examples beside. We can see every dav, let us look where we may, The time honoured custom embraced ; From the King on his throne, to the cobbler's wife Joan, They are all mighty fond of a taste. There's old Parson Pure, as prime and demure, As a Quaker perched up on a hearse; He'll prove since the flood, wine was held to be good, And that water alone WAS a curse. And the ...

FAREWELL TO [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
FAREWELL O Thou art leaving thy cottage home, In the sunny slope of the hill, To the cherishing vines by the open door Thou hast looked a long farewell. To the pleasant stream with its rushing sound The river bank and the old mill ford The winding steps to the water's edge To the nook where the boat lay moor'd. To the homes, and the hearts in fair mill brook Thou hast lingering bid Adieu! They will miss thee, aye when trouble comes Thy sympathy kind and true. May thy distant borne be the dwelling place Of prosperity and peace May loving hearts aye meet thy own Till thy days on earth shall cease. Then when thy pilgrimage now is done May the Saviour be thy stay Through the darksome vale we all must pass Ere we reach the land of day. Accept this parting prayer my friend". Kind friend, tho' 1 now may tell The anguish that word oft has caused my heart | That simple FAK> THIS WILL. NINO,
THE WATEBS ARE OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
THE WATEBS ARE OUT. WHF.N I first settled at Gundagai my residence wasa little verandah cottage, "built of wood. At the rear was a large garden devoted to kitchen produce, and in front there was a wilderness, which we liked to call a flower-garden. Flowers there were, truly, but so utterly neglect ed that they looked more like overgrown weeds. There were thickets of gera nium, tangled masses of pinks and carnations, and hedges of straggling rose-bushes. The cottage itself consisted of four rooms, all on the ground floor, and it seemed a little singular that it should have been built on piles, raised three feet above the level of the gardens, but subsequent experience showed me the necessity of this arrangement. One morning-1 remember the date well, it was the last day ia March-I left my pleasant home to visit a settler on the Tarcutta Creek, about thirty miles distant. I had several calls to make on the road, so that it was past midday when I arrived at my destination. Busi ness ove...
The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. ROYAL HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
E O Y A L HOMES. SINCE the publication-of our last number, the Queen's Birthday nas Deen ueicnu » 'ted by the usual public holiday-the celebration being contemporaneous with Bimilar rejoicings held at spots in every quarter of the globe. For wherever the British ensign waved, there those in authority and those subject to authority, alike united to do honour to the character and majesty of the most potent of Eartirs monarchs. And where does not that ensign wave? It is but bare justice to say that on the-Queen's dominions the sun never sets. For in its daily revolutions, it flashes its li^ht not only on to little islands and excerpted patches of land that own her sway, but looks down on enormous territories and almost whole continents, where her name is never mentioned but with enthusiasm. Such an empire thw world never saw before-so scattered, and yet so united-so enormous, yet so little uuwieldy. The secret of its real compactness lies in the mastery of the ocean-that apparent barri...

CHILDREN'S' PORTFOLIO. LITTLE MARY. OR, A DAUGHTER'S LOVE. A TRUE TALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
CHILDREN'S' PORTFOLIO. ? LITTLE MARY. OR, A DAUGHTER'S LOVE. A TRUE TALE. ON a winter's day, at the commence ment of the year 1846, a benevolent lady was visiting, as was her custom, the female department of the prison of New gate in Dublin, when her attention was attracted by the interesting look of a lilttle girl not more than ten years old, who was in the prison yard, talking through the grating to a disreputable woman, an inmate of the prison. The child was weeping and the woman scold ing ; the lady listened to the dialogue between the two, and gathered that the child was the daughter of the woman in prison whom she was talking to, and that she was in the habit of \ tinning errands ' for her depraved mother ar.d the other equally debased female prisoners. No thing is more affecting than to witness childhood in an atmosphere of guilt and pollution ; and there was a gentle sweet ness in the young face the lady looked on, an innocent expression of touching help lessness, that went ...
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. * Tis strange,' uttered young: Verdant Green, as he staggered back to his rooms, after his first initiation into the mysteries of a college supper party, 4 'Tis strange how evil communications corrupt good manners. I've beeu surrounded by N tumblers all the evening, and now I'm a tumbler myself.' AN EX-PUBLICAN ON DRINKING FOUN TAINS.-The Sanitary Committee, in their , report, recommended * that five public I drinking fountains be erected, one in each of the following places : Islington-green, Holloway-road, Lower-road, Liverpool road, Caledonian-road, at an estimated cost each, whether of iron or granite, of £12 or £15, and at an estimated annual cost of about £8 each," ONE boy in a shop is as good as a man. Two boys, however, are worse than Old' Scratch. If there be but one boy in a room, he is as quiet and sedate as a Quaker. Introduce another, and ground and lofty tumbling, and somersaults, will be the order from sunrise till dark. ' PAPA, I planted some p...
INTELLIGENCE. ENGLISH PROSE COMPOSITION, AND PUBLIC SPEAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
« INTELLIGENCE. ENGLISH PROSE COMPOSITION, AND PUBLIC SPEAKING. The Rev. Thomas Binney delivered a lecture on 4 Writing and Speech,' in the Congregational Chapel, Pitt-street, on behalf of the Building Fund of the Sydney School of Arts. His Excellency Sir W. Denison presided. We have only room to notice two or three points in the lec-ture. In the course of his remarks Mr. Bin ney said 4 the habit of composition was one which ought to be encouraged by every young man who had any mental power, or any desire for mental improvement. It should not take the place of reading. He who did not read well could scarcely be expected to write well, and he who had never written, could scarcely be expected to excel in speech. In a country like this there were numer ous reasons why yaung men should cultivate the art of writing, for many who never dreamed of it in their youth would probably be called to import Ant positions. It was the assertion of Madame De Stael that it "was more difficult to write...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVEBPEN. (Continued from page 209.) THE old school-house looked tranquil and richly picturesque in the early sun light of the autumnal morning, and as the little company approached it, a rusty -clappered bell was ringing out the hour for school. The chapel-like room in ?which it was held might be entered from the courtyard by a door of its own, so that knowing the old building well, Mrs. Halton led the way at once to the schoolroom. The mistress was not at her duties it was evident by the un scholarlike din that could be heard be fore the door was opened, and w hen it was the uproar and confusion made the place a Babel. The mistress and elder scholars were not yet come in, so that the children assembled, in number about twenty, were following each one the fancy of the moment. A considerable portion chased each other round the room, one more than usually daring usurped the mistress's chair, and imitat ed with rich zest her imbecile method of rule, whilst four or ...
RILL FROM THE TOWN PUMP. [SCENE.—The corner of two principal streets. The Town Pump talking through its nose.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 June 1859
RILL FROM THE TOWN PUMP. [SCINB.-The corner of two principal streets. The Town Pump talking through its nose. NOON, by the north clock ! Noon by the east 1 High noon, too, by these hot sunbeams which fall, aslope, upon my head, and almost make the water bubble and smoke in the trough under my nose. Truly we public characters have a time of it! And among all the town officers, chosen at March meeting, where is he that sustains for a single year, the burden of such manifold duties as are imposed, in perpetuity, upon the Town Pump ? The title of 'town treasurer,' is rightfully mine, as guardian of the best treasure the town has. The overseers of the poor ought to make me their chairman, since I provide bountifully for the pauper, with out expense to him that pays taxes. I am at the head of the fire department, and one of the physicians to the board of health. As a keeper of the peace all water-drinkers will confess me equal to the constable. I perform some of the duties of town-clerk, ...
GIVE ME WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859
GIVE ME WATER. Give me water, sparkling water Water glancing clear and bright; It will bring no shapes of terror Rotmd a restless couch at night. I shall dream no clammy fingers Rest upon my burning brow, But my brow will be all peaceful And my thoughts as calm as now. Give me water, sparkling water Far be from me " generous wine, They who quaff that goblet freely, Know no bliss so pure as mine ; No thick mist obscures my vision, No dark shadows veil my sky No fears fire my soul to fury, No grim spectres pals me by. Give me water, pure light water Water glancing cool and free, All so sparkling and reviving, Emblem fit of purity. Press my hand, it never quivers From the influence of wine ; Every stimulating beverage, I for water would resign. Give me water, pure bright water, With the blessings it bestows ; He who lingers o'er the wine-cup Such true freedom never knows, Freedom from earth's deepest sorrow From its foulest darkest stains : He who quaffs pure water only, Never loses, a...
THE FLIGHT OF TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859
THE FLIGHT OF .TIME. One by one our days are gliding, Gliding silently away ; Some are spent in careless gladness, Heedless of the touch of sadness ; Gloomy shadows never 6tray, Where the light is brightly shining, Where the sunbeams play. Others pass in doubt and sorrow, Joy gives place to care and pain; Death of many a friend bereaves us, Hope, deceitful Hope, deceives us, False is its alluring strain; Its thrilling tones how soon they're lo«t, They never come again.
EDUCATION FOR ALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859
EDUCATION FOR ALL. Throw -wide your 'portals' to the march of mind ; Bar not the entrance to the mighty poor ; Ask neither tax nor custom, toll nor coin, Gleaners are they but now for hidden lore. They with a careful hand will sow again What hath been gathered their harvest springs, Rich with high hopes and deep designs, Of purpose, will, of pure imaginings Give ye them tools and they will hew the way, Great Learning's lever shall uproot the wrong Of centuries of darkness, toil, and care, [strong. "Which press'd the life-blood both from weak and Point out the 4 footsteps in the sands of time,' Which minds, now fed in Heaven, left us below, And reason's railroad swift shall span the space, Joining past greatness with the greater now. Then shall up-dawn the Mind's millenium, When tutor'd souls shall subjugate their clay, Shall bend their hearts in faith, their knees in prayer, And wait with trembling hope Christ's coming day.

ENGLISH TEMPERANCE NEWS. We notice by late Temperance papers, that the principal subject in connection with the move ment that is now attracting attention, is the in troduction of the Permissive Bill. Petitions in favour of the bill will be sent in by upwards of 540 societies in England, 180 in Scotland, and 160 in Wales, making 780 separate societies who have pledged themselves to this course, the aggregate number of members must be very large indeed.
