Crouch delivered a lec ture to the Pyrraont Band of Hope in MffluigLT ahapel, Pyrmont, on the Xli^nistly |of Intoxicating Liqhors. During the whole of the time a marked attention was paid to the various argu ments made use of by the; lecturer, while he endeavored to explain to the auditory the fallacy that existed in persons be lieving that strength and nourishment could be procured by the use of wine and other intoxicating beverages; and in order to shjw what really existed in strong drinks, the lecturer exhibited the results of a variety of analytical experiments, clearly proving that if any nourishment was derived from them, it is in quan tities so minute as not to be worthy the risk incurred in their use. 1 he audience, which was very large, seemed highly delighted with their evening's entertainment, separated ab >nt nine o'clock, after giving Mr. Crouch a vote of thanks.

OOULBURN BAND OF HOPE. The monthly meeting of the Band of Hope was held in the Beptist chapel on the even ing of the 16th instant, when Mr. 11. Craig delivered the address ; who, after taking a general view of the evils of drunkenness in the world, alio viewed its extensive influence amongst professing Christians, and said it was quite an anomaly to think of a drunken Christian, yet if any one told 99 out of 100 persons who indulged in intemperance, that they ware no Christians they would be, highly offended; and observed that it not unfre quently happened when, efforts were made to shew the inconsistency of their condu ct, that they drew an apology from the Sacred Scrip tures, adducing the miracle of our blessed Lord, at the marriage in Cana of Galilee, when he made the water into wine ; and also take refuge in the recommendation of Paul the Apostle to Timothy, to use a little wine for his stomach's sake and his often infirmities; but Mr. C. asserted that it was a most falla cious ...
The Eclipse of the Moon. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
The Eclipse of the Moon. AN ellipse of the moon occurred on Sunday last, the 2*0th instant* We have thought it, therefore, very opportune to lead our readers to a consideration of this wonderful phenomenon. To our younger readers who may not have dived into the delightful science of astronomy, it may perhaps be useful and necessary to describe first, what the moon is, and her changes, presented to us, the inhabitants of' this sublunary world. The moon, then, is an opaqu® body, in figure nearly round, like an orange, slightly flattened at each end, called its poles. It is continually travelling routnd the earth,and performs also a re volution round its own axis. Of itself it gives out no light, but shines down upon us merely through reflection by the light of the sun. This accounts for why we see it of such variou» small and large sizes, as we can only see that part exposed both to the earth and to the sun. For example-When the earth is be tween the moon and the sun (called, in oppos...

The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
The Glass of Gin. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 117.) The ultimate consequence of this un pardonable act, was a reconciliation, the last true one the sisters ever had,-a reconciliation simply growing out of deficiency of means with which to pur chase the stimulant, and not from natu ral contrition. Alice had always kept Mary's birth_ day, It occurring about this time, sh begged an entire holiday, and, withou saying a word, made several little pur chases. On the birthday morning Alice lose before Mary was awake, and, walking as far as Covent Garden, pur chased a ricb bunch of flowers, and returning, soon decked the room out gaily. She then laid a delicate cloth (the sole one left out of the fine box of linen they had brought with them from the country), placed the rarest of the nosegay in the midst, set out their best china, a small plum-cake, a jar of potted meat, and some ham, and then going into the bed-room, fetched a bunch of keys from the pocket of Mary's dress. Re turning to the sittin...

The Murder at Botany. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
The Murder at Botany. IT is scarcely possible to conceive any crime more horrible than murder ., but in this case it seems almost worse than the cases which sometimfes Come under our notice. A man murders his wife, the being that he once swore to love, the being that had borne to him children, and those children around him. He, with a strong arm, crushes her to the earth, tramples upon her worse than if she had been one of the brute beasts, and then leaves her to die. Now, in the solitude of his cell, with the powerful effects of drink cleared from his mental vision, what must be the agony of that wretched man's mind, to find that he is condensed to die by the just laws of his country ! But, great as may be his suffering on this account, still more intense will it be if he thinks he has offended a right eous God. The deceased appears to have been an habitual drunkard, careless and in different about the welfare and happi ness of either husband or children. The prisoner, on the other...
STRENGTH OF DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 26 April 1856
STRENGTH OF DEINK. ES ! drink is strong in deed ; ;it can do great H things. Look at that big fellow lying in the kennel; he has been & working like a horse all day long, lifting heavy weights and bearing great heat, and yet he was not a bit tired,-it seemed as if nothing could beat him ; yet there he lies as helpless as a child, he cannot stir hand or foot. Who knocked him down? Strong drink. But what is the other man about, who has been loitering so long near that beer shop ? Just now he was going in at the door, but as he set his foot on the threshold he stopped short and seemed to think a moment; then he turned round and walked quite fast away. But see! he slackens his pace; has he changed his mind again V Yes ! he looks back, stops, turns round, lingers a mo ment-and now he has got to the house again-he puts his hand on the latch, the door opens, and there, in he goes, and we see 110 more. Do you wish to know what all this means ? I will let you into the secret. That ma...

A crowd was round her, and...

She died on the passage out, but she fell * asleep in Jesus;' and though she was committed to the restless ocean wave, her friends do not mourn as if they had no hope of seeing her again. A minister, the Rev. A. D. Kinnimont, attended her in her last illness, and, when writing home, gives the following graphic and mournfully interesting ac count. May God touch your young hearts by it, and lead you to seek an everlasting union with the heavenly Bridegroom, * There were about 950 souls in the ship.
