A Pastor's Responsibility. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
A Pastor's Responsibility. UPON the ministers of religion especially does responsibility devolve. This fact was once well put by a simple shepherd, A gentleman, travelling in a rural dis trict in the east of Scotland, had occa sion to call at a cottage on the roadside, to ask for a drink of water, which was cheerfully handed him by an old silver headed man, the inmate of the cottage. The gentleman, being an abstainer, em braced the opportunity afforded him of extolling his favorite beverage, when he very soon recognised a brother in the person of the venerable host, who, with a very hearty shake of the hand, informed him that he was also a temperance man. The old shepherd (for such was his calling), began then to converse freely on the subject, and, continued he, " Is it no! strange that so many of our clergy stand aloof from the cause ?" The gentleman said that it certainly was un accountable ; but observed that " If they do not come forward, we must just do our best without them."...

To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. SIR,-It gave me great pleasure on peru sing your last number to observe that the J handsome sum of £5 is offered for the test Essay on" Water, and its advantages to man kind this appears to me a step in the right I direction, and I have no doubt that e're this many of the young are hard at work on the > sutgect; but my object in writing is to sug gest the propriety of extending the age of the competitors a FEW YEARS, as I consider by confining it to to those under 21, you exclude many, of both sexes, who would feel some 1 degree of interest in competing for the prize in question. Yours truly, VEKITAS. Balmain, April, 18, 1856. As in the announcement made in last number, we again lay before our readers the parti culars respecting the Essay.

The Apples of Sodom. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
The Apples of Sodom. BY MBS. L. H. SIGOURNEY. Ah! what is life thus spent? And what are they Put frantic, who thus spend it 1- COWPER. THE heir of a noble house grew up to manhood. His person was lofty, and his step commanding and proud. He had been nurtured in halls of learning, and all that wealth could lend to intel lect was his. He dwelt in a stately mansion, and many waited for his smile. In his ample library were gathered the wisdom af ancient sages, and the varied knowledge of modern times. Tomes, enriched by the skill of the engraver, and gay in silk and gold, strewed his tables. There he sometimes liLgered till the lamps grew pale, and the fire in his burnished grate faded. But, as he sat in his deep chair of velvet, with his feet upon an embroi dered ottoman, he sometimes dozed over the open page, for a wine cup was beside him there. Once he read from a c assic hook of ths apples of Sodom ; but deep sleep came upon him, and falling, he lay upon the rich carpet. His servant...
BAND OF HOPE INTELLIGENCE. BATHURST-STREET BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
BAND OF HOPE INTELLIGENCE. BATHtJRST-STREET BAND OF HOPE. On Thursday, the 17 th instant, the evening was passed in singing exercises, interspersed with recitations. The pieces sung were ' Try, try, try again,' ' Give me a draught from the crystal spring,' and * Should e'er cold water "be forgot,'-4 all taken from the selec tion of temperance melodies, just pub lished in Sydney expressly for the use of our Bands of Hope. The recita tions were commenced by Master Alfred Rofe, who gave ' There's a good time coming boys.' The next was the well known dialogue of 4 The two robbers,' Master Alfred E-ofe taking the part of Alexander the Great, and Master John Drury that of the robber; both seemed to enter into the spirit of the charac ters personified, to the admiration of all present. In conclusion, an ode on drunkenness was appropriately given by Master Stechnan Moore. The at tendance was tolerably good, and all seemed highly pleased with t. he evening's entertainment. Last Thursday, the...
Abstinence Abolishers Pledging. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
Abstinence Abolishers Pledging-. I I ' 'You complain of my taking the pledge/ said a reclaimed man in Kent to aa uuti-teetotal acquaintance, 'Strong drink occasioned ma !o have more to do with pledging than ever teetotalism as. When I was a consumer of strong drink I pledged my coat, I pledged my bed, I pledged, in short, everything that was pledgeable, and was losing every hope and blessing, when teetotal truth met me and convinced me of my folly. Then I pledged myself, and by so doing, soon got my other things out of pledge, and got more than my former property about me.'
The Way to Pay Rent. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
The Way to Pay Rent. A BLACKSMITH, in the city of Philadel phia, was complaining to his iron mer chant, that such was the scarcity of mo ney, he could not pay his rent. The merchant then asked him how much rum he used in his family in the course of the day. Upon his answering the question, the merchant made a calcula tion, and showed him that this sum amounted to more money in the year than his bouse rent. The calculation . so astonished the mechanic that he de termined from that day neither to buy nor to drink any more rum, or spirits of any kind. In the course of the ensuing year he paid his rert and bought a new suit of clothes out of the savings of his temperance. He persisted in n ihrough the course of his life, and competence and respectability were the conse quence. t

PRIZE ESSAY. IT will be seen below that the age of the com petitors for the £5 Prize is extended to all under 25 years of age. This step has been taken at the suggestion of several friends who are exertirfg themselves to get as many com petitors as possible, and we trust thai the alteration in the conditions will be hailed with pleasure by all. We have been asked many questions as to how the essay is to be written, and upon what grounds the subject, (Water and its advan tages to mankind,) is to be treated 1 To this we answer, that we have no voice in the mat ter ; let every person take their own view of the subject, and the adjudicators will decide which is the best and ablest written Essay. The gentlemen who have kindly con sented to act as adjudicators, are persons in whom we can place the utmost confidence, and to them alone we shall refer all the Essays. The strictest secrecy will be observed to prevent any person knowing who wrote any of the Essays, and after the Prize is award...
Say A. says the Schoolmaster. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
Sav A. savs the Schoolmaster. A WOMAN, in the north, on being ap plied to, to join the temperance society, said 'Na, na, I'll no do that; its no that I care for the whiskey, for weel I wot I can do without it, but you'll no stop there, you'll be for takin away the drap o' tea, and the bit tobacco, and I canna do without the drap tea and the bit tobacco ava.' Similar to this is the case of the young school boy, who, when the master first put the alphabet before him, and desired him to say A, was silent.-Say A, re peated the schoolmaster, the boy was still silent;-say A was again repeated, but still he was silent; and neither commands, threats, nor punishment, could prevail on the youngster to say A. When the school was dismissed, lots of young urchius flocked round their young companion, each of them trying to look wiser than the other. ' You fule, mon !' said they, 1 why did you no say A, and save yoiirsel' from being threshed?' ' Ah !' replied he, * I'm no sic a fule as ye tak me t...
YE SONS OF FREEDOM. Air, 'The Marseillaise.' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
YE SONS OF FREEDOM. Air, ' The Marseillaise.' YE sons of freedom, burst asunder The chains that now your souls enthral; Come forth ! no longer slumber under The sway of tyrant alcohol. Your wives and children deeply wailing, With tears of anguish in their eyes, Are ealling on you to arise, And shall their tears be unavailing 1 Arise, be free, be free ! Break, break from bondage low; To arms, to arms, and strike the blow For God and liberty ! Hark, hark, the trump of temp'rance ringing Triumphantly from shore to shore; Hark, hark, to myriad voices ringing King alcohol shall rule no more ! Too long, too long his reign.has lasted, Dark reign of terror and despair, Our blooming hopes and prospects fair Too long has fell intemperance blasted. But now we're free, we're free ! The temperance battle's won; We've hurled the tyrant from his throne Welcome, sweet liberty!
A NIGHT IN THE BUSH. EXTRACT FROM A MISSIONARY S JOURNAL IN MORETON BAY, OF 4TH APRIL, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
A NIGHT IN THE BUSH. EXTRACT FROM A MISSIONARY S JOUR NAL IN MORETON BAY, OF 4TH APRIL, 1856. BLACK FELLOw, undertaken to guide me to a large company of sea const aborigines, who were encamped ^he thought) about ten miles from the house, we walked out j together, ! Not finding them where he expected, | we went iu the direction of smoke, which i he could see between the trees long be- J fore I could discern it. As we came ? near we heard the roaring of the fire | getting louder and louder, till we were j almost deafened by it. The grass was long and dry, so that a line of flame, | with .much noise and smoke, marched on, dev°uring the green pasturage, and leav ing the ground black and desolate be- j hind* In. a few days after the next I shower it will be clothed with a richer j pasturage than before. j We could see the track of a numerous j company in the long grass; but, of j course, the fire destroyed every sign of ! their footsteps, so that, when we had run over the flames, at a sp...
TO QUERO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
TO QUERO. Was the Deluge partial or otherwise? It would require more space than is allowed in this publication for me to enter fully into this subject; and even if more room was allowed, I do not think that such a quesj tion could be answered at all with certainty gome of our ablest divines differ on this point, but I am inclined to think that the deluge was only partial:-that is, that the then known world was subject to this terrible punishment. I can scarcely think that the many uninhabited and unknown portions of the world were deluged, but that merely so much as was inhabited by man. We read of Alexander as having conquered the world, but we are not to infer from that he was ruler of a kintrdom which was undiscovered. CECILIA.
PITT-STREET BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
PITT-STREET BAND OF HOPE. Last Wednesday week, Mr. Edwin Bridges, architect, gave a. lecture on colors. '1 he manner in which the subject was handled, showed a thorough acquaintance with the subject; it was scarcely adapted for so juvenile and pleasure-seeking an audience, the at tention accorded to the lecturer was not very gratifying. At the conclusion Mr. Lee announ ced that on the following evening the members would receive their collecting cards. Last Wednesday some new pieces were sung. Next Wednesday, April 30th, Mr. J. Jewel Rutter will give a lecture on an other branch of the subject of Electric Telegraphs, that of ' Magnets.' On the fallowing Wednesday a tem perance meeting will be held.
