Aborigines of Australia. THE MUSES.—POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 5 June 1858
frights ßf Australis. THE MUSES.-POETRY. THERE are poets among the Aborigines of New South Wales, who compose songs, which are sung and danced to by their own tribe in the first instance, after which, other tribes learn the song and dance, being taught by itinerant professors, who go from tribe to tribe, throughout the country, until, from the change of dialect, the very words are not understood correctly by distant blacks. A lady, Mrs. E. H. Dunlop, published, some years ago, in one of the Sydney papers, a specimen of " Native Poetry," and states thus :-" There is a god of Poesy, Wullati, who composes rnusic, and who, without temple, shrine, or statue, is as universally acknowledged as if his oracles were breathed by Belus or Osiris : he comes in dreams, and transports the individual to some sunny hill, where he is inspired with the supernatural gift." This very individual, Wúllati, or as the white folk ttsed to cél lam, Wollaje-always confounding the sound of t with a j?,-lived ne...

PARRAMATTA BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
PARRAMATTA BAND OF HOPE. The first anniversary of this society was celebrated on Wednesday last. About 120 children and their friends sat down to tea in a prettily decorated room in the rear of the Wesleyan chapel. Several striking mottoes on the walls gave evidence of the natuie of the subject to be advocated. After tea an interesting meeting was held, which closed about a quarter-past nine by singing the Doxology. A young lady presided at the seraph ioe, and a choir of singers graced the entertainment with their performances.
darening. ENDIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
darening. ENDIVE. I This may be grown all the year round, and treated the same as lettuce. LETTUCE. The black seeded Green-cos and the Grand Admiral are the best for spring sowing. The brown Dutch and the Bath . cos for main crops, and the Hammersmith hardy green is best for the winter season. They should be planted in rows about twelve inches each way. A constant succession should be sown, and the outer leaves tied up to bleach. MELON. There are three varieties of melon grown , in Australia-the sweet melon, the water ' melon, and the pie melon. The sweet melones used for desserts, and is reared in hot-houses in England, but it flourishes in the colony in the open air in sheltered situations. The green flesh melon is preferred, and is considered equal in flavour to any fruit. The water melon weighs six or eight pounds, but the climate of Victoria is not warm enough for it. The pie melon is used for pies and preserves, being eaten either raw or boiled with sweets. It keeps throughout...

A Case of Murder. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
% ?w á Harber. Two or three years ago, in this city ' of Sydney, a man was tried for the mur der of his wife in one of the less populous districts near the city ; being too poor to fee a lawyer for his defence, he ap plied to have counsel assigned him, and I was directed, as attorney, in conjunction with an eminent member of the bar, to assist him on his trial. The woman had been murdered in an awful manner ; I think seven ribs were broken, and not simply broken, but, many of them, smashed into little bits, the pieces driven into the lungs and other viscera ; the body so crushed, that the experienced surgeon who made a post mortem examination, had never seen a corpse so mutilated ; and described its appearance, as resem bling rather the corpse of one crushed by powerful machinery than by any more ordinary species of violence. I never heard any man receive a higher character, both from his em ployers for many years, and from his comrades, for peaceable, steady, and reputable conduct....

^¿ /^p'HE landlord will call for the rent to-day," is one of those announce ments which fall with different effect upon different people. Made at the breakfast table of a new married couple-with enough to live upon in prospect, and flushed a little with the importance of their new position, it has a rather pleasant sound. The opening of a cash box, the click of the lock and rattle of a bunch of keys-natural results of the announcement-are full of suggestions and associations particularly agreeable at this interesting stage of connubial life. Young Benedict feels he is no longer a single young man lodger-obliged to mind his p's and q's, and behave himself before strangers ; and the " partner of his affections " feels no doubt just as such a sensible lady ought to do. Experience has gathered round the rent day nothing disagreeable as yet ; but wait a few years, and it is very likely that the morning of the day devoted to the visit of " that old screw of a landlord," will wear a gloomy...
Poetry. SUSAN TUCKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
SUSAN TUCKER. j An Appendix to the tale of Ilmry Gardner, respectfully inscribed to that earnest phi lanthropist, Mrs. Foster. Oh, speak to her in Pity's kindest tones, And its warm tears let fall at Mercy's shrine ; Let your soft sighs respond to her sad , moans, And fondly round her neck your arma entwine. By gentle arts only to woman known, Staunch up the wounds in her sad, bursting heart ; Point her to Christ, whose healing power alone. Can in her dire distress, relief impart Like some poor, tender, exotic flower, Bowed down before the cutting, wintry blast, This poor young victim to a villain's power, Is on the world, a drear, lone wanderer cast. Judge her not hastily, in pity spare The fearful agony her heart must rend ; But try in tender words of love to cheer, And teach her how her future lite to mend. Oh, leave her not to bitter grief a prey, So young, so tenderly, so fondly reared, \ Or she may sicken, droop, and pine away, Like a frail flower, for lack of moisture seared....
L. S. D. SKETCH THE FIRST.—THE SCHOOLBOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
BT THE AUTHORESS OF " OLD CALEB." SKETCH THE FIRST.-THE SCHOOLBOY. IP these three simple letters of our common alphabet could speak or write the history of their influence upon mankind, what countless, interesting, and thrilling pages would they give us from the vast book of human life ! Pounds, Shillings, and Pence ! Va rious indeed are the feelings with which different individuals look upon these. The rich and self-indulgent man coolly counts out his gold to pay for luxuries. The tradesman and artisan sparingly expend the shillings, because they are profit upon their trade, and they hope ere long to convert them into pounds. While the poor man counts over and over the few pence which he is about to pay for his hardly earned loaf of bread. The miser too. Oh ! G-od forbid that any of our readers should ever understand his feelings whilst in the dark den he tells his heaps of glittering gold, and the fearful passion Avarice deadens his heart and turns it into stone. He trembles at hi...
The Holy Homes. CHAPTER I. SOME TRAVELLERS TOWARDS LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
Wat lolg gaines. BY SILVERPEN. CHAPTER I. SOME TRAVELLERS TOWARDS LONDON. ACROSS one of those downs of southern England which Sylvanus has sketched with such exquisite effect, Joe Apple shaw, a Wiltshire labourer, and his wife trudged steadily one hot, fine morning. Their five children were with them ; but, with the exception of the baby, which lay asleep in its mother's arms, and the next to it in age, that made little steps by its father's side, none else were to be seen; for the three eldest were onward in the distance, chasing the tiny blue butterflies which flitted amidst the gorse and budding fern, or the countless heath flowers which decked with wild luxu riance the thymy sward. Joe, in appearance, was a fair specimen of the English labourer of the southern counties and their Danish population. Well knit and built, though with a slouch that took from his height ; fair, but sun-burnt ; whilst his face-so regu lar were its features-would have been handsome, had it been lighted ...
Selections. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
BOOK-KEEPING TAUGHT IN ONE LES SON.-Don't lend them. ELOQUENCE consists in feeling a truth yourself, and in making those who hear you feel it. THREE things come not back ; the spoken word, the neglected opportunity, and the past life. LIFE.-A farce to the rich ; a tragedy to the poor ; a comedy to the wise. THE ART OP CONVERSATION.-Not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. MEDICAL men of experience, it is said' attribute much of the prevailing mor tality among children to the practice of taking them about in perambulators, in which they sit for hours without motion for the limbs, or any exercise to keep up the necessary warmth.
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 19 June 1858
( Cowhided from page 184 J THE next morning Mr. Golding re ceived a letter, written in a scarcely legible hand, its soiled appearance plainly indicating that it had been saturated with the tears of the writer. With a dreadful foreboding at heart, he with much difficulty deciphered its contents, which were as follows : " My dear, much abused friend, " Could you but see me now I know you would forgive me - vilely, treacherously as I have behaved to you. My agony of mind is indescribable : reason cannot long retain its seat, if it is not already fled. The torments of hell must be pleasure in comparison with what I am now suffering. I am being devoured by furies as I write. I would give my soul for one glass of brandy to appease them whilst I finish this letter my last act on earth. I must tell you of my dreadful relapse, not as an excuse for my conduct-for nothing can extenuate my abominable ingratitude and sin-but to warn you should you ever show sym pathy for a poor drunkard again. D...
The Children's Protfolio. THE NEWFOUNDLAND DOG'S REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
%\t (Saltos Ijortfalk THE NEWFOUNDLAND DOG'S REVENGE. I WAS always fond of dogs. Gold- I smith, in his eloquent plea for the dog, ' in alluding to a sort of mania for d'^g killing which prevailed at the time of which he speaks, in consequence of an unreasonable apprehension of hydro- phobia, says, among other fine things, that the dog is the only animal which will leave his own kind voluntarily, to follow man. It is true, and the truth should bind man to be the dog's protector and friend. The American brig " Cecilia," Cap- tain Symmes, on one of her voyages, had on board a splendid specimen of the Newfoundland breed, named ' Na- poleon,' and his magnificent size and proportions, his intelligent head, broad white feet and white-tipped tail, the rest of his glossy body being black, made him as beautiful as his peerless namesake, who would, no doubt, have been proud to possess him. Captain Symmes, however, was not partial to animals of any kind, and had an unaccountable and especial re...
