The Children's Model. COLUMBUS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
%\t CljUktn's Htflbtl. COLUMBUS. A POOR traveller knocked one day at the gate of an old convent in the south of Spain, to beg bread and water for his boy. While eating this humble meal, the prior of the convent passing was struck with the noble and in telligent look of the stranger. He stopped and spoke, and observing that he was a foreigner, he kindly inquires into his history. The conversation of the stranger kindles a lively interest in the prior, who invites him to come in and rest from the fatigues of his journey; he then sends for some friends from a neighbouring village, and every one is impressed with the appearance and words of the stranger. They enter into his plans with a friendly zeal; : never had he found such sympathy before. It was as unexpected as grate ful, and grateful as unexpected. This poor wayfarer was Christopher Columbus, unfolding to a little circle of new-found friends his grand and cherished enterprise of exploring the ocean to discover that new land, whic...
PERSEVERE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
PERSEVERE. It is a fine remark of Penelon, " Bear with yourself in correcting faults as you would with others." We cannot do all at once. But by the con stant pruning away of little faults, and cultivating humble virtues, we shall grow. This simple rule-not to be discouraged at slow progress, but to persevere, overcoming evil habits one by one, such as sloth, negligence, or bad temper; and adding one excellence afier another-to faith, virtue; and to virtue, knowledge ; and to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, pa tience ; and to patience, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, charity will conduct the slowest Christian at last to high religious attaiments.
WINDSOR DEBATING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
WINDSOR DEBATING- SOCIETY. We have much pleasure in announ cing to our readers that Windsor is following in the wake of the numerous other townships in the colony, and has established the above society. Several subjects have been ably discussed. Judging from the reports in the Sydney journals, we question indeed whether any town of similar size and numbering the same inhabi tants, even in the mother country, would produce more able or more eloquent speakers. The society has in contemplation the furnishing a library and reading room. We trust it will meet with all due success, and become an incentive to youth to enlist in the ranks of the present age of improvement, and to prefer such social advantages to the lower and more debasing attractions of the houses of intemperance. Great thanks are due to the worthy president, J. Ascough, Esq., J.P., and J. Day, Esq., J.P., M.D., for being the foremost to associate themselves with movements of such a salutary character, and which we are ple...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. CLOSE OF NIGHT THE THIRD. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
Cm ftigjjis in a BY T. S. ARTHUR. C Continued from page 174J CLOSE OF NIGHT THE THIRD. I WAS sitting with a newspaper in my hand-not reading, but musing at the " Sickle and Sheaf,"' late in the evening marked by the incidents just detailed. " Where's your mother ?" I heard Simon Slade inquire. He had just entered an adjoining room. " She's gone out somewhere," was answered by his daughter Flora. " Where ?" " I don t know." " How long has she been away ?" " More than an hour." " And you don't know where she went to ?" u No, sir." Nothing more was said, but I heard the landlords heavy foot moving backward and forward across the room for some minutes. " Why, Ann! where have you been?" (The door of the next room had opened and shut.) " Where I wish you had been with me," was answered in a very firm voice. " Where ?" " To Joe Morgan's." " Humph !" Only this ejaculation met my ears. But something was said in a low voice, to which Mrs. i Slade replied with some warmth, "If you don't have t...
BATHURST STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
BATHURST STREET. On the 27th May, the entertain ment consisted of a series of four dialogues, between Conscience and the Distiller, Retailer, and Wholesale Dealer. In these dialogues, the arguments for and against the Liquor Traffic were brought out in a highly interesting manner, exposing the un scrupulous motives of those who sacrifice the interests of their fellow creatures for money. The other pieces given were " The Song of the Shirt," and " Patient Joe, the New castle Collier," who declared that all things were for the best. June 4.-Temperance meeting.
Selections. PROFIT AND LOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
PROFIT AND LOSS. A distinguished merchant, who for twenty years did a vast amount of business, remarked to Dr. Edwards, " Had it not been for the Sabbath, I have no doubt I should have been a ?maniac long ago." This was mentioned in a company of merchants, when one remarked, " That is the case exactly with Mr. . He was one of our greatest importers. He used to say that the Sabbath was the best day in the week on which to plan voyages ; showing that he allowed his mind no Sabbath. He has been in the Lunatic Asylum for years, and will probably die there." Many men are there or in the maniac's grave, because they had no Sabbath. They broke a law of nature, and of Nature's God, and found " the way of transgressors to be hard." Such cases are so numerous that a celebrated British writer remarks, " I never knew a man work seven days in a week who did not kill himself."
No title [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
VERY man who has the welfare of the colony at heart feels that he should take an interest in the great questions of the day-general and local. How and when shall we get railroads ? By what route shall we go or send to the home of our ancestors ? Will the bridge via Panama suit us best ? Should the State support and so recognise as orthodox several forms of religion, in many important points the most opposite in their principles ? Would people cultivate the land if they could get it cheap ? and will they get it ? To build a shed over a hardy tree-say a Norfolk Island pine-to protect it from the wind and weather! Is that what " Protection " would do for our rising manufactures? and would they thrive under the shelter? Can new Corporations break stones and mend roads? if they cannot, who can ? On all such, and many other questions, thinking people generally keep a few opinions in stock. Sometimes the scene changes a little : new wants and woes claim consideration, often not new in them...
Old Caleb. THE MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
By MRS, REDFORD, Author of "Annie Leslie, §c., $c, (Continued from page 168.) THE MARRIAGE. ON the eve of the day which was to see Fanny fulfil her fatal promise, she sat beside her father and linked her hand closely within his. The usual air of neatness and comfort pervaded the room, and the portrait of her lost mother seemed to smile upon them as they sat. That portrait had been taken in days of happiness, when Fanny was a guileless child, the joy and pride of her mother's heart. The smile of serenity was still upon that mother's picture ; but Fanny's days of innocence and joyous childhood, where were they? When Fanny wished her father good night, there was a fervour in her parting kiss which sent a thrill of joy to the old man's heart. " Good night, my heart's treasure ; may thy sleep be sweet, and may the God of love protect thee," was the father's benediction. And the "heart's treasure," how felt she? was her sleep sweet ? Oh, no. " Tired nature's sweet restorer," came not, and...
An Abbenture in Italy. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
!pknta in $t% IN the year 1836 on a bright autumn morning, accompanied by Captain B. and Lieutenant H., with a guide to steer us through the intricate woods of the Maumina in Tuscany, we started on a shooting excursion. In the ex citement for sport, we had unconsciously gone farther than we expected, and before we could retrace our steps through the dense scrub, (which by the bye much resembles that of Australia) the day had quickly passed, and Lie setting sun warned us that it was time to return; we stopped for a moment to consult which would be better, to camp out for the night or to return to our Albugo. Our medi tations however, were suddenly inter rupted by a loud rustling of the trees and branches far around us. Our guide, who was well versed with the signs of the chase, quickly gave us to understand that it was occasioned by a herd of swine, (wild boars,) lustily calling out," Mio Dio! il porco, ilporco." Hardly had the words escaped from his lips, when we beheld hundreds of ...
THE REV. ROBERT HALL'S ESTIMATE OF BRANDY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
THE REV. ROBERT HALL'S ESTI MATE OF BRANDY. Conversing with a friend, Mr. Hi ll said,-" You remember Mr. , sir!" " Yes ! very well." " Were you aware of his fondness for brandy and water?" " No." " It was a sad habit, but it grew out of his love of story telling; and that also is a bad habit,-very bad habit for a minister of the Gospel. As he grew old, his animal spirits flagged, and his stories became defective of vivacity ; he there fore took to brandy and water ; weak enough, it is true, at first, but soon nearly ' half-and-half.5 Ere long, he indulged the habit in a morning ; and when he came to Cambridge, he would call upon me, and before he had been with me five minutes ask for a little brandy and water, which was, of course, to give him artificial spirits, to render him agreeable in his visits on others. I felt great difficulty, for he, you know, sir, was much older than I was ; yet, being persuaded that the ruin of his character, if not of his peace, was in evitable, unless ...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
turn darbtur, (Continued from page 170 J " MY dear fellow, do, pray, be more composed," said Mr. Tucker, now really alarmed at Henry's violent excitement, as rising, he gently took his arm and led him to a sofa, " there sit down and let us talk calmly. I am sure I have always sliown an interest in your affairs, and you know that you have not a friend "in the colony who would do more for you than myself; now do hear me patiently while I reason the ijiatter over with you," he continued, as Henry seated himself, and covering his face with his hands gave vent to a copious flood of tears. " Only let me know what I can do for you, Henry, and I will gladly do it, but pray do not distress yourself and me too by making such horrid allusions, and thereby do yourself so much injustice. I really cannot bear to hear them, and there is not the least analogy between yourself and that poor unfortunate wretch whom you have just referred to, and whose dreadful fate I shudder to think of, for of all t...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 6 June 1857
OUR MESSAGE. IT has often struck us that among the many bores of life, not the least tolerable are those persons who are born without a notion of adaptation. They have not the least idea of how to turn to the best account the materials and circumstances around them. If any work is to be done or plan executed, their minds revert at once to some mill-horse-track in their past experience. They have a sort of settled conviction that it would be madness to attempt to move out of it. " Our plan was this," " We used to manage in this way," " I'll tell you how we did," and such expressions at once escape their lips; and they stupidly believe it possible to literally follow their model, forgetting that they are surrounded by different circumstances and new combinations. If we would do anything in a colony like this, further than being guided by our experience, we must come down to the level of things as they are, and construct out of them the forms of worth and beauty that we desire to see e...

The Children's Model. THE JEW'S DAUGHTER. From an American Work. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
THE ' JEW'S DAUGHTER. j From an American Work. As I was going through the western part of Virginia, an old clergyman gave me a short account of a Jew which greatly delighted me. He had only lately become acquainted with him. He was preaching to his people when he saw a man enter, having every mark of a Jew in his face. He was well dressed, and his looks seemed to tell that ho had been in great sorrow. He took his seat, and listened in a serious and devout manner while a tear was often seen to wet his manly cheek. After the Service, the clergyman went up to him and said, " Sir, do I not address myself to one of the children of Abraham ?" " You do," he replied. "But how is it that I meet a Jew in a Christian church ?" The substance of his account was as follows :-He had been well educated, had come from London, and with his books, his riches, and a lovely daughter of seventeen, had found a charming retreat on the fruitful banks of the Ohio. He had buried his wife before he left Europe...
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
PITT STREET. On the evening of Wednesday, May 10th, Mr. Mills, late missionary in the South Seas, gave a lecture cn " Heat and its Sources." Several striking yet simple experiments illus trated the. subject.

The secretary, at the conclusion announced that nine essays had been received by him, on the subject pro posed a month previous, viz., " The i Advantages of Bands of Hope."
