THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER X, BEBTHA AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
THE HO L Y 11 O M E S. BY SILVERWSN. (Continued from page 411.) CHAPTER X, BEBTHA AT HOME. BEACHING home on the evening already mentioned, Bertha's first thought and care, as usual, was her father. Finding him asleep-as she fancied from weari ness- she did not disturb him, but attended to the needs of the poor patients and the other duties of the little shop. Her tasks accomplished, and a neighbour stepping in to close the shutters, as was his custom, she went into the inner room, stirred up the fire, and then leant her face towards that of the old man, for his breathing was heavy, and his sleep quite unlike what it usually was. As she did this, the touch was in a moment revealed to her; some one had been plying him with drink, and this was the sleep of drunkenness. The cause she knew - the purpose and result she stood by the old man, breathless and stricken by this new calamity, then, with that measured calmness so terrible to witness-for at its foundation lies the deepest of human...

WHO'S TO BLAME? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 1 January 1859
WHO'S TO BLAME? You say I love the saucy Kate, She of the nut-brown hair, Who looks so sly, whose laughing eye But mocks my deep despair; &nbsp; The very coral of her lips Sets all my heart aflame, So if I love her, sister mine, Pray tell me who's to blame ? She knows I love her, (artful minx!) And plagues me every way; She steals away my sleep at night, My peace of mind by day; She ever plays me "fast and loose," &nbsp; That tantaiaing game, And so she keeps my captive heart— Oh, sister, who's to blame ? To fling her fairy fetters off, I've struggled all in vain, Her links of love bind full as fast As could an earthly chain; And all the while her witching smile Adds fuel to the flame; So if I burn, oh sister mine, Pray tell me who's to blame ? Yet how I love the tricksy sprite That worries me to death! And how I hang, with rapture keen, On every word she saith! Oh could I but persuade her now To bear for aye my name, I think for once, dear sister mine, She wouldn't ...

YOUTH AND BEAUTY IN THE EMBRACE OF DEATH, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
YOUTH AND BEAUTY IN THE EMBRACE OF DEATH, I SAW the beautiful. Her step was light, And her heart joyous. In her ear were sounds That flattery breathes to youth, and «till her dreams Were of the thornless rose, and soaring bird, And bees that hare no sting. Again I came; There was a shaded chamber* and a coueh, Where lay a marble brow. Pain had reduced The rounded form, and worn away the trace Of comeliness. The weepers stood around. But one wa« nearer still-a spectre-pale, Who clasped her in his arms. The hope whose root Is in this earthly soil, had fled away, * And Fancy held no more her frost-work wreaths Before that glazing eye. One eve, I mosed O'er a new-sodded mound-the mouldering bed Of what was once so fair. Slow rode the moon 'Mid gathering clouds. And then there came a voie* In mournful cadence, to my listening soul : " All flesh is grass ; and all its gooduaeM Like the frail field-flowwr."
CHARADES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
CHARADES. I. My first, is that which all lady's would choose And when ever its offered is seldom refused, My second, is that which before me always goes, Unless by accident I fall on mv nose, My whole if Australia one million possest, The morals of our land, would ever be blest. O. W. B. II. My first is a bird, or a bird and his brother ; Who lustily hail the day's dawn, A personal pronoun is part of my other Before what you till to grow corn, And my whole is a place just three miles from the City; That we need such establishments now 'tis a pity. AQUA. III. My first is most welcome to folks who are tired, My second's a juvenile sheep, And my whole's a .*bleak house" while its sit« you've admired, You've felt your flesh quiver and creep. AQUA. IV My first (a contraction) is oft hard to guess, My second to travellers shelter affords : The poor are more oftenly my whole, I confess, Than the miser will e'er be though thousands h« hoards.

A LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
A LAMENT. | _ i I never had a piece of toast, Particularly large and wide, But fell upon the sanded floor, Right on the Butter'd side ! And so with everything in life Whene'er my turn to draw, In easting lots for Fortune's gift, I pull tile shortest straw. And every girl turns up her nose, If I a glance but take at she : So that in luck, in love, and toast, There's never nothing for poor me ! I say, Phil, who was that pretty girl I saw you walking with last Sunday even ing? Miss Hegges! Hogges! Well she's to be pitied for having such a name. So I think, Joe, rejoined Phil ; I pitied her so mueh that I offered her mine, and she's going to take it soon. DID you pull my nose in earnest, sir ? Certainly I did, sir. It is well you did, sir; for I do not put up with jokes of that kind. MT character, said an alderman, who had cleared himself from a charge of bribery, my character, sir, is like my boots, all the brighter for blacking. THOUGH we may love our own vices, yet we very rarely lov...
FACTS FUN AND FANCY. CONS FOR ANDERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. CONS FOR ANDERSON. I WHY should a pretty girl never marry ' a curate ? Because there's no living with him. BUT why should curates marry pretty girls ? Because there is no living with out them. IF you tread on a tom cafs tail, why is it like an Australian bird ? Because it makes he-mew (emu). WHEN are coals good to eat ? When they are Whittells. LADIES' HATS.-And why not write on ladies' hats as well as bonnets ? The poets treat them with disdain, nor think them worthy. Some people quite detest the hat, and say that it is frightful. I much admire it for all that, and think it quite delightful. I love the hat, indeed I do, you really may believe it. I love the hat-whene'er I find a pretty face beneath it. A. H. T. DOBBS says that when a painter can no longer earn his bread and cheese he should throw away his palate. THE HEIGHT OF IMPUDENCE.-Taking shelter from a shower in an umbrella shop.

INTER-COLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. VICTORIA V. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
INTER-COLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. VICTORIA V. KEW SOUTH WALEb. ON the 20th, 21st, and 22nd of this month will be played, in Sydney, the fourth grand contest between the picked cricketers of the above colonies. Three great matches have already been played, in two of which our colony has achieved the victory. In the third and last played of these, however, our men were so thoroughly defeated that all interested in the retention of our cricketing laurels are intensely excited as to the result of the forthcoming trial of skill. Nor can it be denied that the rivalry in other matters between the two colonies im parts a piquancy to the desire of victory in both which the mere game itself could not produce. Our good Victorian neigh bours are somewhat inclined to boasting like all who are not fully convinced of superiority, try to remove their fears by expressing a confidence not always felt, a favourite subject with them for good banter is the great inferiority in all things of Sydney to Melbou...
THE LEGEND OF COLOGNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
THE LEGEND OF COLOGNE. No stranger ever enters Cologne without going to see the Cathedral, and nobody ever looks upon that fragment of the mightiest Gothic design in Christendom without doing three things-without re gretting that it never was completed, without asking who WAS the architect, or without listening to the LEGEND OF THE BUILDER. Mighty was the Archbishop Conrad de Hochsteden, for he was lord over the chief city of the Rhine-the city of Cologne : but his thoughts were troubled, and his heart was heavy, for though his churches were rich beyond compare in relics, yet other towns not half so large or powerful as his had cathedrals whose fame extended over Europe, and whose beauty brought pilgrims to their shrine, profit to the ecclesiastics, and business to the townspeople. After many sleepless nights, therefore, he determined to add to his city the only thing wanting to com plete it. and sending for the most famous architect of the time, he commissioned him to complete the ...
THE OLD HONEYSUCKLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
THE OLD HONEYSUCKLE. I SAT with my writing materials before me one delightful afternoon last summer, in my temporary retreat at a picturesque little Hamlet on the Parramatta River bearing the euphonious name of Concord, -and truly is that neat place deserving of its peace breathing name,-as I write I sigh over the recollection of the soul hallowing influence of the " peaceful hours I then enjoyed " so encouraging to pro fitable meditation, self-examination, and spiritual growth. When in loved solitude and peace, I'd stray from busy crowd's, bewildering noises free. Oft would my thoughts take wing and soar away till lost in wondrous blissful extacy. A refreshing breeze was gently wafted through my open window, laden with the delicious perfume of the orange blossoms from the orchard, the numberless pretty flowers from the well stocked garden and the blossoming creepers which clustered in rich luxuriance over the spacious ver andah by which the house was surrounded. The lengthening ray...

SPLINTERS. A detachment of the 12th regiment, will shortly leave Hobart Town, for Sydney.-It is proposed to borrow eight million pounds, from Rothschild for Railway extension in New South Wales.-?

THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER XI. MORE OF THE TADCASTER'S HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
T H S HOLT HOMES. BT SILVBBPEN. (Continued from page 13») CHAPTER XI. MORE OF THE TADCASTER^ HOUSEHOLD. As a matter of course, the Yorks look «d with great contempt upon people of the Normans' olass, and upon the Nor mans in especial, for presuming to rent a floor immediately above theirs. Mr. York never condescended to notice one of them, with the exception of William ; though Mrs. York, always curious about the lodgers* affairs, sometimes gossipped with poor Mrs. Norman, or asked Liddy questions. But Liddy rarely went into their room ; Mrs. Norman, never. For though a sensualist in the fullest sense, Liddy was too much a child-too infantile in her manners, thoughts, and feelings to win anything more than a passing glance from Mr, York. It was some nobler, grander nature that he must subdue ; some one who, though very womanly, he would wrestle with in words ; for no one more than he, knew better how to make speech the instru ment of human woe and ruin. Norman, from only meeting thi...
The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
Cj|e Australian ffome Computen, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. "From the green rivage many a fall Of diamond rillets musical, Thro' little crystal arches low Down from the central fountains flow, Fall'n silver chiming, seem'd to shake The sparkling flints beneath the prow." -TBNYSON. NOTWITHSTANDING the taunt anent cold water, hurled with such contempt against the teetot.aller, rivers of cognac, and Niagaras of Byass' porter would hut poorly substitute the limpid fluid which nature has so bountifully supplied to her thirsty offspring. The perfume of a brandy-stream meandering through fields of flowers would sadly mingle with their sweet smelling incense-and the falling foam as it leaped from rock to rock down some dread abyss, instead of being radiant with a thousand hues would be changed to whitey-brown, and would be nothing more than the big corolla of a monster ale jug. Poetry has been largely indebted to cold water for some of her most beautiful images. Let the picture of charity be ...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. MT DEAR MB. EDITOR-What a shame ' that so much is said against the ladies' style of dress ; I'm sure I never take up a paper hut I find something about crino- | line ! You Editors should write about things you understand ; then you would \ not be so ridiculous. One says that a lady's dress carried away a gentleman's hat from a church, leaving the poor man to go home bare-headed-that the ladies are only a kind of clothes horse-that r they ought to be charged double at con certs-that they smuggle lace, cigars, and other things. It is really too bad, and shows how little they have to write about, when they fall upon such subjects, Much as they rail against us, I am sure they cai n >t but admire our graceful floating figures, and admit they are bet ter than the narrow slices our grand mothers were, Let us alone say I. We despise the supercilious airs the men as sume towards us. .We will be their com panions, if they will allow us only our own way. We will sit beneath t...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. COOGEE BEACH—A WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 15 January 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. COOGEE BEACH-A WARNING. " SEE, papa, the sun is peeping out at last from those great cross looking clouds, and I declare there is a hit of blue sky as big as my bonnet, and it is getting bigger every minute. The rain is all over, and we can have our drive to &lt;3oogee Beach after all," cried Minnie Myrtle, as she skipped in from her obser vatory in the balcony in an ecstacy of delight, " I have been quite cross with j the rain all the morning," she continued, " though I know it's very wicked of me. Papa, do tell Solomon Snail to get the carriage ready quickly, and come, sister, let us get ready-I long to be off. We will have a merry afternoon on that nice long sandy beech, and play at ' catch me if you can' with the big waves which come toppling over and over each other with their great white bends looking like cart loads of cauliflowers." # » * Half-an-honr afterwards the carriage, containing Minnie and her sister Anna, with their mamma and their gove...
