CHE quantity of wines and spirits imported into the colony may possibly be no true index of the exact quantity drunk during a corresponding period. In the report of Mr. F. W. Cosens, of London, (referring to the shipments to Australia and New Zealand,) he states that during the first seven months of the last four years the total quantity exported to these places was as follows WINES. Gallons. SPIRITS. Gallons. 1853 - 507,542 1853 - 1,695,422 1854 .... 498,407 1854 - 896,977 1855 - 228,150 1855 - - - 551,139 1856 - - * 586,567 1856 .... 1,894,039 During the three years first named a gradual decline is shown; but in the last (1856) the quantities increase to ail enormous extent-that of spirits in particular, being nearly four times as much as that of the previous years-? from rather over half a million to nearly two millions of gallons 1 We cannot but suppose that an increased demand has called for this larger supply that these noxious beverages are growing in public estimation.

The Rescued Family. SAD CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
%\t gjtauneh Jfautik BT MRS. HARRIET BE EC HER 8T0WE. (Authoress of " Uncle Tom's Cabin" "Dred" ^c., $c.) (Continued from page 15.) SAD CHANGES. IT is a great mistake to call nothing intemperance but that degree of phy sical excitement which completely over throws the mental powers. There is a state of nervous excitability resulting from what is often called moderate sti mulation, which often long precedes this,-and is, in regard to it, like the premonitory warnings of the fatal cho lera, an unsuspected draught on the vital powers, from which, at any moment, they may sink into irremediable col lapse. It is in this state, #ften, that the spirit of gambling or of wild specu lation is induced by the morbid craving of an over-stimulated system. Un satisfied with the healthy and regular routine of business, and the laws of gra dual and solid prosperity, the excited and unsteady imagination leads its sub* jects to daring risks, with the alterna tive of unbounded gain on the one side, or o...
Band of Sope Intelligence. PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
ianir of |§op fnfellipw. PITT STREET. ON the evening of January 7th, a lecture was given by Mr. W. Davis, on " Eaily English History," he briefly revived the state of Britain before the Roman conquest; pourtrayed the ambition, daring, and perseverance of the Romans under Julius Caesar, their success in gaining almost complete dominion over a great part of the island, the occasional reverses they met with, the decline and fall of their power, their withdrawal from Britain, after having the government of the island in their hands for nearly 400 years, and its eventual conquest by the Saxons. Mr. Davis threw the whole into a sort of narrative, which while it involved no departure from the truth told most successfully in the attention it gained on the part of the youth present. All were evidently gratified; the room was full, and though very warm, no uneasi ness was shown. Mr. Kirby gave a lecture on " Selfish ness as a Motive" last Wednesday evening. Owing to the inconvenience oc casio...
WORKING MEN'S LIBRARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
WORKING MEN'S LIBRARIES. The establishment of libraries in con nection with large business firms con duces not more to the benefit of the workpeople employed than to that of the firm itself. The young men em ployed by Messrs. Millington and Hutton, wholesale stationers, have lately exerted themselves to form a library in their place of business: and it has already been productive of good. " This library is a saving to me," said one of the young men: " how much do you think it saves me?" "I cannot say," was the reply. " It saves me three shillings a week," said he, " for I used to go to the public-house, and smoke and drink; but now, I spend my evenings in reading, at home." G. B., London.
BAZAAR AND FANCY FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
BAZAAR AND FANCY FAIR. The Bazaar, in aid of the funds of the Pitt Street Band of Hope, after several postponements from bad wea ther, took place in the " Botanic Gardens," on the days of January 1st, 2nd, and 5th ; and, on the whole, passed off very successfully. New Year's Day opening so fine, induced the committee to make immediate but very incomplete arrangements for open ing; this they did at twelve o'clock at noon. Upwards of 800 visitors arrived during the day, giving these delightful gardens a look of bustle and cheerfulness. A large awning, 100 feet by 30, made expressly for the occasion, was erected on the usual spot ; under this, on tables covered with red cloth, extending in length some 140 feet, were exhibited the articles for sale, presenting a very pretty appearance: a light frame-work, edged with pink calico, ornamented with palms, added to the effect. Though the weather was very warm, this marque was delightfully cool the jwiiole of the time; this was remarked both ...

SHORT TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
SHORT TIME. M There is a limit to toil set by God. He who has given bounds to the ocean -who has placed the duration of light and darkness under rule-who has put all things under law-whose universe is an embodiment of order, has made it impossible to continue toil beyond a certain limit without detriment. And if that limit be passed-injury suc ceeds. * . * * * * * « The man made rich by the long-hour system may be a murderer of men the destroyer of morals and happiness -the adversary of souls; and may hold riches as Judas held the thirty pieces of silver-his gains may be the price of blood! ". Rev. S. Martin.
LOVE TO GOD AND MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
LOVE TO GOD AND MAN. Two men working together in a mine wei e preparing to blast the rock, and had placed the fuse, which accidentally took fire. Seeing their danger, they leaped into the bucket, and called to the man at the top of the shaft to draw them up, that they might escape the explosion. He tried to do this, but was not strong enough. What could be done? The fire was burning to wards the powder, and in a few seconds it would go off. One of the men was a pious man, and, at this awful moment said to the other, "You shall live, and I will die ; for you are an impenitent sinner, and if you die now, your soul will be lost: but if I die, I know that by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ I shall be taken to himself." He leaped from the bucket, leaving his aston ished companion to be drawn up in safety: providentially he himself was preserved uninjured amidst the frag ments of the broken rock.
RUIN AND DESPAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
RUIN AND DESPAIR. It was some years after that a small and partly ruinous tenement in the outskirts of A-- received a new family. The group consisted of four children, whose wan and wistful counte nances, and still unchildlike deport nient, testified an early acquaintance with want and sorrow. There was the mother, laded and care-worn, whose dark and melancholy eyes, pale cheeks, and compressed lips, told of years of anxiety and endurance. There was the father, with haggard face, unsteady step, and that callous, reckless air, that betrayed long familiarity with degrada tion and crime. Who that had seen Edward Howard in the morning and freshness of his days, could have re cognised him in this miserable husband and father; or, who, in this worn and woe-stricken woman, would have known the beautiful, brilliant, and accom plished Augusta? Yet such changes are not fancy, as many bitter and broken hearts can testify. Augusta had followed her guilty husband through many a change and many a...

Bible Questions and Answers. BIBLE QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
libit Questions aub ^nsfotrs. BIBLE QUESTIONS. I. Who was the first king of the twelve tribes ? II. Where is Jerusalem, though not named, classed expressly with Sodom and Egypt? III. Give six instances which are recorded in Scripture of the dead_being raised, or rather restored to life ? In consequence of having received only two answers to Bible questions in our last, and which we suppose has been caused by the lateness of our publication, we will give our young friends the oppor tunity of answering them also in our next, and therefore, we postpone entering the answers till our next. The answers we have received are from X, and XYZ. We should like to have an answer to the whole six questions from one boy or girl; let thenj try.

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. J. WINDEMAN.--We have a few sets on hand, the price will be 8s., bound. J. J.-No work of the kind is done without toil and patience. The difficulties you have enumerated are only ordinary ones; to collect a number of children together to benefit them, is not so easy or so simple as it at first sight looks, but a perseverance that knows no despair will over-ride every obstacle. VESTUS.-A society of the kind is, we believe, about to be formed. There is a society called " THE CHRIS TIAN TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY," meeting at the Juvenile Temperance HaU, Frances Street; but what is wanted, is a society centrally situated in Sydney, and nothing can be done on a large scale till this is formed. MARTIN.-The set of numbers sent to be bound wilt not be ready for two or three weeks E. STIIACEY SHARP.- We again sent the numbers from October 25th to the end of the quarter, last week, and hope they were received safe. We have no intelli gence of the former ones. This qu...
Correspondence. AUCKLAND AND THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Journal. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
Corrtsjjnuktce. AUCKLAND AND THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Journal. SIR,-As I am led to believe your columns are open to all communications having a tendency to promote and assist you in advancing that grand principle of which you are the stern advocate temperance-I have ventured to pen the following observations on the pro gress of the Temperance Cause in Auckland, which may not be altogether uninteresting to your Sydney readers. It is painful in the extreme to all those who have the interest and happiness of the community at heart, to see the vice of intemperance-the root of all evil, and the stumbling-block to prosperity-making such inroads and becoming such a universal vice in both the European and native races. And this is allowed to proceed, nay, is in a measure countenanced by the Go vernment ; for it will ever remain a dis grace to the present justices of the peace for Auckland, when we remember that their predecessors, in 1855, diminished the numbe...
The Children's Model. LITTLE LIZZY LESLIE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 17 January 1857
%\t Chilton's UtoWL LITTLE LIZZY LESLIE. " IF *they wouldn't let him have it!" said Mrs. Leslie, weeping. " 0, if they wouldn't sell him liquor., there'd be no trouble! He's one of the best men, when he doesn't drink. He never brings liquor into the house; and he tries hard enough, I know, to keep sober, but he cannot pass Jenks' tavern." Mrs. Leslie was talking with a sym pathising neighbour, who responded by saying, that she wished the tavern would be burnt down, and that, for her part, she didn't feel any too good to apply fire to the place herself. Mrs. Leslie sighed, and wiped away the tears with her checked apron. " It's hard, indeed it is," she mur mured, "to see a man like Jenks grow ing richer and richer every day out of the earnings of poor working men, whose families are in want. For every sixpence that goes over his counter some one is made poorer-to some heart is given a throb of pain." " It's a downright shame !" ex claimed the neighbour indignantly. '' If I had my own...
