PRAY MUCH—PRAY WELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
PRAY MUCH-PRAY WELL. FELIX N"epp once made the following compa rison :-" When a pump is frequently used, but little piains are necessary to have water ; the water pours out at the first stroke, because it is high. But if the pump has not been used fbr a long time, the water gets low, and when you want it you must pump a long while, and the water comes only after great elforts. It is so with prayer : if we are instant in prayer, every little circumstance awakens the disposition to pray, and desires and words are always ready. But if we neglect prayer, it is difficult for us to pray, for the water in the well gets low."
A Royal Fxample. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
A Royal Fxample. Otjr total abstinence friends are not perhaps generally aware that Charles XII, " the mad King of Sweden," as he was called by some of his contempo* raries, was a pledged man, though not a member of a teetotal society. The anec dote on which this statement is founded is given in M. de Bury's " Essai Iiisto rique et Moral sur 1' Edn cation Fran caise." Charles, as everybody knows, in the commencement of his career, drank to great excess. In one of his drunken bouts he so far outstepped the limits of propriety as to treat the Queen> his mother, with great disrespect. The next day, being informed of his rudeness, he took a glass of wine in his hand and xe paired to the queen's room. " Madame," said he to her, " I have learned that yesterday, in my cups, I forgot myself towards you. I come to ask your par don ; and to prevent the recurrence of such a fault,'! drink this glass to your health; it shall be the last during my life." He kept his word, and from that day ne...

Ancient History. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
-- XJKJ 1 1 1 Ancient History. IT is necessary, to become a historian, that we should have some knowledge of Geogaaphy and Chronology. A study so useful and entertaining makes us inti mate with the rise and progress of nations -their arts and sciences, their trade and commerce. Many "which have been handed down to us only by tradition, are proved by those ancient and noble edi fices, which still exist in almost every country of the globe. This is particu-* larly the case iu Rome, Egypt, Greece, Abyssinia, Thebes, the oity of a hundred gates, where living monuments protest their origin from the earliest birth and history of the first generations of man. We should be apt to be doubtful of muqh that has been recorded to us of what passed in the darker ages, had we not these stupendous edifices, gorgeous pa laces, magnificent churches, and tow'ring pillars which still exist to greet the eye of every traveller, who for the love of curiosity, and in the search of knowledge from time to ti...
WHO IS THE COWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
WHO IS THE COWAim. I WAS sitting in the second story of the house with the window open, when I heard shout of children from beneath me. " Oh, yes, that's capital ! so we will ! come, oome on now ! there is William Hale ! come on, William ;-we are going to have a ride on the road, come with us ! " " Yes, if mother is willing. I will run and ask her," replied William. " Oh, oh ! so you must run and ask your ma ! Great baby, run along and ask your ma ! Are you not ashamed? 1 did'nt ask my mother," " nor/," " nor/." added half-a-dozen voices. " Be a man, William," cried the first voice, " come along with us if you do not want to be called a coward as long as you live. Don't you see were all waiting ! " I leaned forward to catch a view of the children, and saw William standing with one foot advanced, and his hand firmly clenched in the midst of the group ; he was a fine sub ject, for afpainter at that moment. His flushed brow, flashing eye, comprassed lip, an$ chang ing cheek, all told h...
REMEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
REMEMBER. A little boy was amusing himself with his playthings, upon the Sabbath. " Edward/' said his mother it is the Sab bath-day." " Oh. is it 1 said he; " I did not remember" " That is the very command which God has given us," said the mother: "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy." Children often excuse themselves by saying, " I did n^t think," " I forgot," " I did not re member," but such excuses are not acceptable to God. We may plead ignorance as an excuse for the neglect of duty, but not forgetfulness.
WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
W A R. THE horrors of war have at length broken in upon the blessings of peace, which for more than forty years have existed between England and the nations of Europe. The Emperor of Russia, although possessing one of the largest empires in the world-grasp ing for still greater power, has been seeking to subdue the Turkish Empire to his sway. War between the Turks and Russians has been the result. Towns and Yill ages have been, burned up; men women and children have been slain; and thousands of soldiers have been left wrelt«ring in their blood on the battle field. How striking are the words of a great mili tary man ; " I have seen buried cities, desola ted fields, and impoverish familiea. I have heard the groans of the father when deprived of his son, the support of his age ; I have wit nessed the dispair of the mother, when be reaved of the delight of her eyes, and the joy of her life : I have heard the frantic cries of the widow, and have seen the tears of the orphan; I have behel...
A Children's Party at Kiama. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
A Children s Party at Kiama. AN interesting entertainment was given by the Rev. G. Mackie, on Thursday, ] 3th Decem ber, 1855, to the children of this place. As all the boys and girls in and around Kiama having an invitation to the party, it 13 not in the least marvellous that the Free Church should have been barely capacious enough to accommodate with seats the numbers that assembled. The juveniles were honored with the presence of several of the gentry of the district, and with that of Mr. G. Bowman, M.L C., and the Rev. Messrs. Salmon, Lums daine, and M'Kail, who all appeared solicitous for the well-being of the rising generation. The children were addressed by the Rev. Messrs. Mackie and Lumsdaine, to whom they listened with marked attention ; and between the addresses they were plentifully supplied with sweet cake and tea, of which all appeared to partake with a healthxul relish. -lllawarra M ercury.

The committee felt the want of such information at the com mencement, and although there were found kind friends willing to supply all that was required, still, it occupied much 'time and no small degree of trouble to collect. But it is not designed to offerthisasamodel institution, knowing that many who read this outline will detect faults and see much that might be improved.

A RAILWAY STATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
A RAILWAY STATION. A RAILWAY STATION presents an aspect which constantly varies. At one hour you shall find it a cool promenade, where the footfall of the porter or the policeman reverberates from the lofty walls and the glazed roof broken now and then by the thundering echoes of a heavy hammer-stroke, or the crash of a ponderously loaded truek shunted suddenly into its place. The pleasant,sunlight shimmers softly through the arched roof, and at tiie open endi towards the country you see the glittering rails wind ing onwards for miles, and converging to a point in the far perspective. As you stand gazing, a bell rings sonorously, at your elbow, and, if your eyes are as sharp as those of the ringer, you will discern in the distance a dim speck, or a fitful wreath of silver stream, w hich grows rapidly bigger and bigger as you look upon it, and soon bursting upon the ear with its sharp iteration of the piston stroke, gives indication of its near approach, Another mi uute and the huge ...
The Disobedient Son. A DARK SHADOW UPON MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
The Disobedient Son. A DARK SHADOW UPON MEMORY. MY father, after an absence of some years, returned to the house so dear to him. He had made his last voyage, and rejoiced to have reached a haven of rest from the perils of the sea. During his ahsence I had grown from a child and baby of my mother's (for I was her youngesfc), into a rough, careless boy. Her gentle voice no longer restrained me. I was often wilful, and sometimes disobedient. I thought it indicated manly superiority to be independent of a woman's influence. My father's return was a fortunate circumstance for me. He soon perceived the spirit of insubordination stirring within me. I saw by his manner that it displeased him, although for a few days he said nothing to me about it. It was an afternoon in October, bright and golden, that my father told me to get my hat and take a walk with him. We turned down an open field,-a fa vourite play-ground for the children in the neighbourhood. After talking dheerfully on different t...
THE BAD BOY MADE GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
o THE BAD BOY MADE GOOD. BOYS, I have something to say to you very important. A very kind father, who had "been to chapel one day, coming home in the evening, took his little boy, and placing him on his knee, inquired of him if he had been a good boy during the sabbath ? With a sad look, he said he had not. He had not been doing good, and he had grieved his mother. After suitable admonitions, he left the room, and the mother explained the case. She had occasion to reprove him during the day for indulging in trifling conduct. Instead of submitting meekly to the reproof, as was usual with him he became angry and mani fested a spirit of stubbornness. " My son," said the mother, " I must pray with you." They retired; aiid she prayed with him until his stubborn heart relented, and he was melted into sorrow for what lie had done. They returned but his little heart was troubled. After sitting awhile by her side, he looked up into her face, &nd said, with the most touch ing tenderne...
EGYPTIAN LIGHTHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 January 1856
EGYPTIAN LIGHTHOUSE. Have you ever read, dear children, about the beautiful lighthouse built of white marble, that stood many centuries ago at Pharos, in Egypt ? It was erected at great expense, and on the summit of the town, which was several hundred feet above the ground, was a great fire &nbsp; kept burning every night. So as the sailors passed over the Mediterranean sea, and came near the city of Alexandria, they saw far away in the distance the beacon-light, by which to steer their course. Now, the Bible is the same to you as the light-house is to the sailor. It is "a lamp unto your feet, a light unto your path." How earnestly does the pilot gaze to catch a glimpse, if possible, of the bright beacon-light that shall guide him safely over the dark sea. So should you make the Holy Bible your guiding-star, giving heed "as to a light that shineth in a dark place."

At about the revolution of every seven years, we find ourselves another and yet the same being; we undergo a change in our views, and no lesa of the light in which we regard them, a change of motives too, as well as of actions. Circumstances considerably altered by a variety of causes, some per haps under our control, and others quite beyond it, so operate on our worldly po sit'on, that we are as it were, new crea tures, with other wants and requisites by which to support our more artificial state -our general well-being.

Numerous ancient ruins on the banks of the Nile still stand, and show by their grotesque characters and designs, the horrid carnage and warfare carried on by barbarous and blood-thirsty warriors, as far back as more than three thousand years from the present time. The Pyramids of Egypt with their huge masses of stone-about thirty of which still exist, are the natural wonder of every traveller. Indeed, the mind is los...
