CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. SPEAK GENTLY TO EACH OTHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. 9 SPEAK GENTLY TO EACH O T H E E. . PLBASE to help me a minute, sister,' gaid little Frank. ' Oh, don't disturb me/ I said; ' I'm reading,' ' But just hold this stick, won't you, while I drive this pin through?' said Frank. 'I can't now, I want to finish this story,' said I, emphatically; and my little brother turned away with a dis appointed look, in search of somebody else to assist him. Frank was a bright boy of ten years, and my only brother. He had been visiting a young friend, and bad seen a windmill, and as soon as he came home his energies were all employed in making a small one, for he was always tiying to make tops, wheelbarrows, kites, and all sorts of things, such as the boys delight in. He had worked patiently all the morning with saw and knife, and now it only needed putting together to complete it; and his only sister had refused to assist him, and he had gone away with his young heart saddened. I thought of all this immediately after he left me,...

BANDS OF HOPE.—PUBLIC MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859

BANDS OF HOPE.-PUBLIC MEETINGS. THE manner of conducting the public meeting of Bands of Hope is a subject of great importance and one on which considerable diversity of opinion has obtained. One thing will have struck our readers already, namely, that a strong infusion of the religious element should be cultivated, and whatever tends to diminish this should be care fully avoided. A education, to be effective in relation to moral excellence, must be religious. Let us not, however, be misunderstood here; we have no faith in any attempt to transform boy» and girls into old men and old women. Dull, heavy meetings will never do ; what is it, then, we want ? It is the happy medium, short, ear nest, and sensible addresses, good lively singing, simple, unaffected addresses by the children. Always let our young friends have something to do, but avoid giving too much to a few of them. Divide the work as fairly as possible; this may involve a little more time and patience on the part of those ...

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859

THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVEUPEN. (Continued from page 209.) AMONGST the latter was Liddy. who had already won the hearts of divers of the little scholars, through her sweet gentle way, her loveliness, her exquisite stories about Giddy, and the readiness with 1 which she undertook to renovate the dresses of certain delapidated dolls. Nay i more, she produced her workbag, and I distributed many little pieces of rich J silk, the gift of Margaret, amidst the happy little ones about her, and they, looking on such as infinite riches, were "boundless in their grateful thanks. Liddy thus sat, the centre of a group that diligently watched the fabrication of a pretty bonnet, when the door opened, and a little shaggy dog came bounding in, and so to the place where the little scholars sat. There wagging its tail an instant, it leapt up into Liddy's lap, and began caressing her pretty hands. ' Oh, get up, and hide the bonnet,' said the children to Liddy, ' this little dog belongs to the Manor House...

CHAPTER XIX. DOWNWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859

CHAPTER XIX. DOWNWARDS. WITH Ned Binley's recovery, and the commencement of a new con tract by Ned's employers, Joe Ap pleshaw's fortunes at once mended. On a previous application, the fore man of works liad been favourably impressed by his decent appearance and herculean frame; and now, with Ned Bingley by his side to say a good word for him, he was at once ' taken on' at wages almost fabulous compared to his earnings as a Dorsetshire labourer. Thus, from day to day, this descendant of some Danish viking, or some stalwart Roman legionary of the old Germanic races, delved side by side with Bingley, amidst the relics of Roman London-its temples, its statues, its streets, its houses, and possibly at every stroke of mattock or spade, effecting that irreparable ruin, which will be only adequately mourned over when general intelligence shall be higher than what it is at present, and history iinderstood to be an induction from positive facts, rather than the mere reweaving of monkish stor...

CHAPTER XX. NEW WORK—NEW FRIENDS—A NEW HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859

CHAPTER XX. NEW WORK-NEW FRIENDS-A NEW HOME. Cyrus Loxwood upon returning homer told his mother of his meeting with Bertha, of her sudden illness^ of the death of her father, and what he had also learnt from John Olave. ' If I knew in what way we could assist her/ he said, ' we wouid do so, poor a$ we are, but her spirit of independence i» as rigid as our own. For I fancy that Mr. Wroxeter. to whom she seemed to be slightly known, has offered her aid in this extremity, but she has steadily refused to accept it in any shape. You, dear mother, might have a better chance of aiding a noble woman, fronded we had the means.' ' We are poor, dear Cyrus,' replied the mother thoughtfully, 'for generous as our friend the major is, the works absorb for the present all superfluity, Still leave the matter to me, and I will go to her, and see what can be done.' Mrs. Loxwood was as good as her word, for she set off at once to the address Cyrus gave, taking with her half of Mr. Wroxeter's gift. She ...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. POLITICS AND PUBLIC HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 June 1859

Cljt Australian point dompnion, . AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. POLITICS AND PUBLIC HOUSES. LOOKED at from a temperance point of view, a General Election, as conducted now a-days, cannot but be considered as containing some dangerous tendencies. The practice which has become so common of holding meetings in public-houses, can hardly fail to lead to a considerable increase in the consumption of intoxicating liquors. This is evident enough, from the conduct of publicans themselves, and no other testimony is needed. It is notorious, that when there is no immediate prospect of a contest, they bestir themselves to get up one, no matter whether it is based on principle, or on personality. Why should they do this, but that they know that rivalry will give rise to meetings, that the meetings will take place at public-houses, and that the thirsty speakers and the thirsty listeners will stop to drink when the meeting is over? A publican lets the use of his best and largest room '. free gratis-for...

I have been a tavern-keeper.' At this announcement there was a movement through the whole room, and an expression of increased interest. 'Yes, Mr. President,' he went on-' I have been a tavern-keeper, and many a glass have I sold to you, and to the Secretary there, and to dozens of others that I see here,'-(glancing around upon the Company.) ' That's a fact,' broke in the President -' many a glass have I taken at your bar. But times are changed now, and we have begun to carry the war right into the enemy's camp. And our war has not been altogether unsuccessful, for we have -taken prisoner one of the publicans' bravest generals f But go on friend W , let us have your experi ence.' 1 As to my experience, Mr. President,' the ex-tavern-keeper resumed, * in rum selling and rum-drinking, for I have done a go...

Its progress i* only apparent, like the workers of a treadmill. * * * Its change is not amelioration. For everything that is given, something is taken. Society requires new arts, and loses old instincts-' EMEESON. (Essays, p. 85.) IT is a pity mankind doesn't keep pace in moral progress with material achieve ment. We hear all sorts of laudations often couched in sterlinglanguage-of the successes of the current age-the glory that illumines this nineteenth century the great destiny that is dawning for the human race. We fear the picture is too flattering : the sharp bright lights are driven too freely into the canvas. Drunkenness-well personified by the Polyphemus, the old blind, reeling, rolling giant of Homer-stalks hide ously over the face of the earth, flouts the splendour of civilization, and flings drear shadows on the beauty and bright ness before it.

Judgea, indeed, by the inexorable law of supply and demand, there would not seem to be much scope in Australia for Magazines. Time after time, attempts have been made to re-produce in these colonies the serial literature which forms so large a portion of the reading of the British public, yet almost invariably not only without success, but with most egregious failure. It would take a great many pages, merely for us to give a list of all the abortive projects that have been started. Their name is legion. The . phenomenon has not been confined to any one colony, for all of them have witnessed the same experience. Enthusiastic authors and adventurous publishers have, from time to time, started under fresh auspices...
