PUBLICANS' LICENSING BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
PUBLICANS' LICENSING BILL. WITH great satisfaction we notice the withdrawal of this Bill upon its second reading. Mr. DALLEY appeared desirous to wash his hands of it altogether. With regard to the 45th clause, and that part of it relating to opening public houses on Sunday night, he said he thought that the public must be under a wrong impression : they could not have noticed that there was à " strict pro- vision against allowing anybody to be drunk." Oh ! model legislators, to have arrived at such a stage of perfection ! te A strict provision against allowing anybody to be drunk!" Simple Mr. DALLEY, why not try your hand in legislating against southerly-busters !-a " strict provision " against their blowing, would be hailed as a boon by the public. We would also recommend the ascertaining whether there does not exist, at the present time, such " strict provision " to prevent drunkenness on the other days of the week. Mr. DALLEY, however, admitted his willingness to support the vie...
MECHANICS' INSTITUTES IN AUSTKALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
MECHANICS' INSTITUTES IN AUSTKALIA. ^|ÍN all the leading states of the world, there are a variety of institutions established for the rising generations of all ages and classes, from the ^ humble village school, to the university ; and it must now be a source of great consolation to the people of this country, to see gathering around them numerous establishments of a similar character. It must be especially gratifying for all, whether in this, their native land, or in the land of their adoption, to see springing up daily, fresh means within their reach, by which all " who will read may learn" Institutions within the means of all to avail of, even from the humblest labourer. Mechanics' institutions however, are perfectly peculiar. It is impossible to value them too highly ; for to the mechanic they furnish the means for acquiring theoretical as well as practical knowledge ; their shelves unfold to the man of neglected education, various opportuni- ties for self improvement ; hours of...
Poetry. TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
TO-MORROW. , Sweet clay-from whose perpetual dawn Half of life's little light we borrow ; Veil of the future yet undrawn ! Hope's own beautiful TO-MORROW ! Day ever rising-never risen ! Time ever coming-never come ! Thou, who dost paint the soul's dim prison With landscapes of Elysium, Still peeps thy morning star behind, Though sorrowful TO-DAY is glooming ; And o'er the vexed, tempestuous mind, The thunder-peals of thought are booming ! When th' heart to its black depths is stirred, Still, in each pause of raging sorrow, A voice,--a soft, blest voice is heard ! 'Tis thine-the sky-lark of hope's heaven, -TO-MORROW. What hoards of happiness to be, Lie somewhere in thy secret keeping ! Aye keep?, as keeps a sunny sea, The rich wrecks in its bosom sleeping ! Yet, blest in but expected pleasures, Earth's millions wait, and watch thy dawn: As well the owners of those treasures Mischt wait to see the deep gulf yawn, And give them back their gold! Oh! when That burial-vault of wealth shal...
BATHURST STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
BATHURST STREET. June 23.-Mr. Kirby- entertained the meeting, at the close of which, Mr. Lee coming in, several anecdotes were given of noble conduct, and showing the ad- vantage of presence of mind when over- taken by sudden danger. July 1.-Mr. Crouch's Dissolving Views were again unavoidably postponed on account of the weather. Rather a large number, however, had assembled. As repeated disappointments have arisen from wet weather on three or four successive nights fixed upon by Mr. Crouch, he intends exhibiting his views on some regular meeting night within the next few weeks, without any previous announcement being made. The members of the various Bands of Hope are referred to an advertisement on the wrapper about a meeting on thc Racecourse, on the 14¿A of this month, at which they will be expected.

Band of Hope Meetings. ALLIANCE BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
ALLIANCE BAND OF HOPE. MR. ALFRED CANE delivered a lecture to the members of this society on the even- ing of 23rd June, on the Houses, Furn i ture, Food, and Clothing of our Forefathers. The night was unfavourable to a large attendance ; about 100 were present, who seemed intensely interested in the subject of the lecturer. The pleasing and familiar style with which the various divisions of the subject were touched upon, could not fail to attract. The secretary at the close informed the children that a stock of Temperance Medals, handsomely illuminated Pledge Cards, and an assortment of new Recita- tions, had been received and could be obtained at the meetings. Last Wednesday several Recitations were delivered by the more youthful members ; addresses were also given by several friends of the cause on the sub- ject of Temperance. Prizes were offered at the close for the best essay on the "Indian War." Wednesday, July 7.-A lecture. Wednesday, July 14.-Recitations. The Juvenile Temper...
The Holy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
BY SILVERPEN. ( Continued from page 207.) THE sun was waning into the bright shadows of the afternoon, when the travellers' cart entered the green lane already referred to. At about half a mile or so, where it ran imbowered in the verdant downs, a picture of sylvan beauty began to show itself that could have but few parallels. As this widened, and the belt of fern and gorse-clad sward was lost on either side in bushy hedge-row depths, and the tall oak and elm trees canopied their branches into one, the scene was still more picturesque. To add to this, a little swift and limpid rill gushed out from some adjacent woodland, and wound its way along the lane, at such distance from the hedgerow as to leave between a broad patch of mossy sward-cool, shady, and fragrant with the countless flowers of June. Here it was that Joe and Nelly Apple shaw had eaten their dinner, and now rested. Taking advantage of Joe's nap -for he lay asleep, his head upon one of the bundles he had borne swung on h...
CHAPTER II. THE SEARCH FOR LODGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
CHAPTER II. THE SEARCH FOR LODGINGS. The Normans and their household goods reached London that same evening. The morrow was Saturday, and by nine o'clock in the morning, Robert Norman was to present himself at the counting house of Messrs. Newbud and Stopp, the well known cabinet-makers and uphol- sterers, of Winpole-street, with whom he had obtained regular work. As he would not commence his duties till the following Monday, there would be time enough after his interview with his new masters, to make search with his wife for a home. Leaving their goods accordingly at the railway station, they obtained beds for the night at a neighbouring coffee-shop of decent appearance. Some time before nine o'clock on the following morning, Norman had found nis way into that mass of quiet streets which lie between Cavendish and Man- chester squares, eminently suited by theil quietude, I might almost say dulness, tc the tastes and habits of the intellectua classes, and by their old fashioned arist...

The Vision [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 3 July 1858
As I, lay ruminating over the fearful scenes I had just witnessed of the evils and contentions of drunkenness, and looked back upon the cold and lonely cell of the murderer whom I had just visited to awaken him to eternal realities, and who, in the feverish paroxysm of drunkenness had, with that arm which should have protected, destroyed the mother of his own offspring-a fearful spectre passed before me and touched me with his icy hand, exultingly exclaiming ** Follow, and I will show my victory." Methought, as I viewed this unearthly spectacle, I could see his heart was one mass of solid stone, a perfect petrefaction, unfeeling to every touch. His brain sent forth a blue and lurid flame from his nostrils and his mouth. His hair dropped human blood, and his body bore sundry scars, gaping like fresh wounds unstaunched and unmedicated. I shrank back with horror; but with fiendish laugh he exclaimed, as he held up a huge flagon labelled in letters of gold, "Elixir of Life"-"I am the as...
Poetry. RAISING THE WIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
I«tiu RAISING THE WIND. 'Twas in a little country town, Not far from here they say, A couple lived of some renown, £nown by the name of Gray. John Gray and Mary Ann his wife I So dearly loved the drink, ! It steeped them to the chin in strife, And swallowed all their chink. It took the cloak from off the nail, The gown from off the peg ; John's boots too would have found a sale But for a wooden leg. At length they were reduced so low, From yielding to desire, That poor John's wooden leg would go, Sometimes to poke the fire. However, one cold winter's day, No drink could they obtain, For credit none would give to Gray, All too well knew the name. Ihe name was blazoned forth in chalk On every pot-house wall; In fact their deeds afforded talk For all the great and small. Cried John, 44 The horrid blues I've got," Said Mary, " So have I, Of egg-flip I should like a pot; Oh, John, for gin I die." " But you shan't want, for hark'ee John, I've just bethought a plan To raise the wind, the c...

The HOly Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
BY SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 222.) ..PRICE was not the only circumstance that dismayed the artizan in his search for a home. There was the uniform stench arising from defective sewerage, varying a little more or less, according to the habits of each house occupier, hut still never absent; there were in some cases, where a sight from a staircase win dow could he obtained, narrow yards heaped up with unremoved rubbish, from which the fa.tor, mingling with the malaria of the sewerage, formed that ofiensiveness so perceptible in, and so rarely absent from the third and fourth class of houses of the metropolis. Usually where this stench was at its worst children swarmed, whose begrimed faces, dirty clothes, boisterous voices and occasional rudeness, gave proof enough of the abundant evils arising from such homes. By some strange circumstances, that amounted almost to a rule, a lodger's possession of children seemed confined to a certain class of houses. Jn those of a more decent Ri...
