COLONIAL ALE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
COLONIAL ALE. BT A CORNSTALK. You have often, I presume, heard that delightful beverage entitled Colonial Ale, foully stigmatised by all those uncivilized Britishers, who were able to invest the sum of three halfpence in the purchase of a glass of it. They have the audacity to assert that, in comparison to what they drank " at home," it is mere hogwash. " At home " is ever lastingly in their mouths. Their rugged, uncultivated palates are as unable to detect the delectable flavour of that miraculous compound as an old-man kangaroo is to sing the Hundreth Psalm, or a staunch tee totaller to get drunk, after reading the u leader" (to speak typographi cally) of the Band of Hope Journal. Don't believe these home-sick English men, you Sydneyites. Your Colonial Ale is the ambrosial nectar formerly imbibed by the gods. The inventor of it was inspired by Bacchus himself. It elevates the animal spirits of us miserable worms to an aerial altitude from which it is utterly impossible to look dow...
Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. I A LECTURE was delivered by the Rev. Mr. Quaile, entitled "The Nobility of Labour." The lecture was highly interesting, and the atten dance upon the occasion^very good. No meeting was held last Thursday, partly from the inclemency of the weather. Next Thursday (June 25) the society intend holding a grand meeting at the Prince of Wales theatre in the shape of a Soiree. Should any pro ceeds arise from it, the same to be devoted to the Temperance Hall Fund. The expenses and risk to the society will be very great. Some of the most talented artistes, vocal and instrumental, in Sydney, will grace the evening's entertainment with their performance.
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
OUR MESSAGE. THE friends of colonial literature will again have opportunities of showing it encouragement in several new forms. It gives us great pleasure to see four or more new journals raising their heads at the same time and demanding attention. The Month, a literary journal, edited hy Mr. FRANK FOWLER; The Sydney Magazine of Science and Art, edited by Mr. JOSEPH DYER ; The Windsor Review ; and, lastly, The Southern Spectator, an interesting magazine, hearing a religious character, to be published in Melbourne, and edited by thc Kev. RICHARD FLETCHER. How truly characteristic of Australia is the bursting the shell of so many at the same instant ! however, it would not look colonial if it were otherwise. We give to them, and that heartily, our wishes for their success. We could desire for them each a perpetual existence ; Ave hope they are prepared for the struggle that lies before them. Feelingly we speak, and " fellow-feeling makes us wondrous kind." Glancing back along the rug...

^VÍ-TE would draw attention to a few facts contained in a paper read before ^ALv the Philosophical Society, by CHRISTOPHER ROLLESTON, Esq., Registrar-General, on the " Sanitary condition of Sydney," on the evening of Wednesday, 10th May-published in full in the Herald of May 12th. The returns on which the observations were based were for the year ending February, 1857, and from such returns we gather that the total number of deaths for the year was 1340 ; that half this number (638) died under fifteen years ; and a quarter (378) under one year, and twenty-eight over 100 years After speaking of the caution that should be used in drawing inferences from one year's observation, this gentleman proceeds : But if the inquiry had been confined to the mere numbers which are born and cut off annually from amongst us, I should not think it worth while to occupy your time in listening to a barren statement of these facts. My object has been to ascertain tne causes windi nave lea to wnat I must...

WINDSOR DEBATING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
WINDSOR DEBATING- SOCIETY. THE usual weekly meeting of this society was held on Monday last. The subject debated was, "Does morality increase proportionally with civilisation ?" It was opened in the affirmative by Mr. R. Nidson in a most appropriate address, presenting the leading features of the question in a clear and distinct manner that called forth much ap plause. He was followed by Mr. Baines in the negative, but owing to the little time he had to prepare him self for so serious a subject, he failed to make so much impression on his hearers as no doubt he otherwise could have done. Mr. Smith then rose, who spoke briefly, but to the purpose, and read several extracts, with much feeling, from various authors, connected with the question, in favour of the increase of morality. Mr. J. Walker succeeded him, speaking very briefly on the same side. On the president taking the votes of the society, the speakers in the affirmative had a very large majority. On Tuesday next, J. Ascough,...
Old Caleb. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
Êh Cáeír. By MRS. REDFORD, Author of "Annie Leslie, $c., $c. ( Continued from page 168.) FRANK WILLIAMS was now in a position to pay his " debts of honour" mistake me not, gentle reader, I do not mean honourable debts, but those contracted at the tavern and gaming tables. It was astonishing to see how rapidly he rose in the estimation of his companions, now that he had married money. In fact, they all at once dis covered that he was an excellent fellow-"a downright good fellow." Some of them would even die for him, so deeply did they become attached ; and the finest gentleman and dandy in the town, who had somewhat looked down upon the small farmer's son, now condescended to link his arm affection ately within that of Frank's, and walk with him up the principal street in broad daylight. Frank's vanity was highly flattered, and to maintain his character of "good fellow," his money was lavishly squan dered. I say his money, but it was Fanny's : the money which good Mr. Warden had toil...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. NIGHT THE FOURTH. DEATH OF LITTLE MARY MORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
BT T. 8. ARTHUR. ( Continued from page 189.j NIGHT THE FOURTH. DEATH OF LITTLE MARY MORGAN. " WHERE are you going, Ann ?" It was the landlord's voice. Time-a little after dark. " I'm going over to see Mrs. Morgan," answered his wife. " What for ?" "I wish to go," was replied. "Well, / don't wish you to go," said Slade, in a very decided way. I can't help that, Simon. Mary, I'm told, is dying, and Joe is in a dreadful way. I'm needed there and so are you, as to that matter. There was a time when, if word . came to you that Morgan or his family were in trouble" " Do hush, will you ?" exclaimed the landlord, angrily. " I wont be preached to in this way any longer." " Oh, well ; then don't interfere with my movements, Simon ; that's all I have to say. I'm needed over there, as I just said, and I'm going." There were considerable odds against him, and Slade, perceiving this, turned off, muttering something that his wife did not hear, and she went on her way. A hurried walk brought her to...
BOYS OUT AFTER NIGHTFALL. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 20 June 1857
BOYS OUT AFTER NIGHTFALL. " I HAVE long " (says one) " been an observer, as I am a sympathising lover of boys. I like to see them happy, cheerful, gleesome. I am not willing that they should be cheated out of their rightful heritage of youth, indeed, I can hardly understand how a high toned, useful man can be the ripened fruit of a boy who has not enjoyed a fair share of the glad privileges due to youth. But while I watch with a very jealous eye all rights and customs which entrench upon the proper rights of boys, I am equally apprehensive lest parents, who are not forethoughtful, and who have not habituated themselves to close observation upon this subject, permit their sons indulgences which are almost certain to result in their demoralization, if not in their total ruin ; and among the habits which I have observed as tending most surely to ruin, I know of none more prominent than that of parents permitting their sons to be in the street after nightfall. It is ruinous to their mor...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
OUR MESSAGE. WE must congratulate the Temperance Alliance Committee on their successful meeting. The interest they have raised, and the good-will they gained, will no doubt be sufficient to ensure a safe carriage to their project, even though it will require .£10,000 for its realisation. We have often wondered whether our readers are fond of poetry or not. We wish some five hundred of them would write and tell us, and set us at rest on the subject, and make such other suggestions for the improvement of the JOURNAL as in their superior judgment they may deem practicable. However, we have ventured to present in verse a report of the soiree above referred to. The readers of " Henry Gardner," will again miss the continuation of their avourite story ; we may say that from want of space we have deferred insert ng it until the conclusion of " Old Caleb," which will appear in next issue. The results of frugality and temperance form the subject of our first article.
HOW EVERY MAN MAY HAVE HIS FREEHOLD BY FRUGALITY AND TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
HOW EVERY MAN MAY HAVE HTS FREEHOLD BY FRUGALITY AND TEMPERANCE. CHE daily blessings and mercies we enjoy make little or no impression upon us. In the continued and uninterrupted use of GOD'S gifts we are apt to forget, or lightly to esteem the Almighty Benefactor, from whom they are derived. Forgetfulness of their value makes us indifferent to preserving them, till at length we learn their value from their loss. It may be reasonably asked whether this be not especially the case with GOD'S first blessing to man -Health. Have we not enjoyed this blessing so long, that we often forget ita benefits ? We are not sufficiently aware how much such a heavenly gift is abused by mankind. We are not so mindful as we ought to be of the bitter bondage under which the indiscretion of our forefathers have suffered, and under which thousands of our fellow-creatures labour in the present day from the frightful evils of intemperance, and the obvious punishment it entails. Our ignorance of the wide-sp...
Old Caleb. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
By MRS. REDFORD, Author of "Annie Leslie, $c, $c. ( Continued from page 200. ) * "WE must prepare to leave the farm, Rachel," said Caleb, the morning after the sad scene already described. . "Leave the farm, Caleb! why?" asked Eachel. " Because this man whom Frank has robbed must be paid back his money; no one shall ever lose anything by me or mine, if I can help it. All must go, Rachel," he continued ; " yes, it will take all that I possess to make up the sum." The thought of leaving the dear old farm was dreadful to Rachel, but she forbore to say much, because she dreaded seeing Caleb so dreadfully excited as he had been the night before ; so with a heavy heart she began to make preparations, and Caleb made arrangements for the disposal of his little property. His cattle, his farming implements, his favourite horse who knew his voice ^ and was so obedient to his call, even :.his furniture-all must go to make up the required amount, (for be it remembered Caleb was only a small farm...
The Children's Model. SAM POWEES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
SAM POWEES. I WHERE'S Sam?" asked Joe Dennett, coming into the Powers' yards, and seeing Mrs. Powers at the door. "Up in his study," answered Sam's mother. "And where's that?" asked Joe, "I did not know Sam had a study." Sam's mother smiled and told him to go in the garden, and may be he would find it. He did so, and shouted " Sam, where are you ?" " Halloo ! " said a voice from above. Joe looked up and saw his friend perched in the crotch of an apple tree, with slate and book in hand. " Come," said Joe, " the boys are going a boating, and want you to go." " Can't," answered Sam, " I am trying to master this algebra ; we all missed to-day." " Why, it is Wednesday afternoon, and that is our time. I would not study, I am sure; what's the use ?" asked Joe. " Well, for my part, I am bound to get this lesson the first thing I do," said Sam. " Pooh 1 it's too hot to study ; besides, I hate algebra; what's the use of puzzling your brains over x plus y ?" " I think it is of use to get our l...
