CORRESPONDENCE. TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 July 1859

CORRESPONDENCE. TO OUR READERS. Every one is possessed of knowledge peculiar to himself; this, if imparted would probably be of use to others: a medium of communication is consequently valuable. "We propose that the BOMB COMPANION should possess facilities for this in future; a column will, therefore, be de voted to Questions and Answers. Any of our readers that CHOOSE may ask questions, we will print them, and any that can may answer them. Should the information required be connected with subjects of general interest, so much the better. The questions and answers should be as concise as possible, and the answers sent early, that they may appear in the number following that containing the question, distinctive initials should be appended to each. This department has been suggested by the many queries we have received of late, among others the following: - 1.-In what year was the colony of Victoria separated from New South Wales?-R. T. F. 2.-Can a landlord insist upon viewing premise...

THE . CLOUB. AW AIXBOOB.Y, BT CHARLES HA B PUB. Ok* Witty morn, oat of the sea-warefl wild A speck-like cloud arose, and as a child flayfWly glided up the broad blue sky, Ana o'er the sun-parched hills afl brown and Onward she glided, through the azure air Borne by the breeze without toil or care, Till looking down in her etheral joy, The marked earth's laborers at their hard empUjy. A^d oh! (she said) that I could somewhat do J6 e«se the burthens of yon toil-worn crew, To give the hungry food, the thirsty drink The thought of good is very sweet to think. The day advanced-and the cloud greater grew, ?

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 July 1859

THE HOLY HOMES. BY 8ILVEBPBN. (Continued from No. 91.) ' AFTER papa's burial,' said Bertha, struggling with her tears, ' I shall sell the few effects and remove to some other part of London, for this would be too fall of painful associations.' ' Might you not om? and be near me,' said Mrs. Loxwood, 'Chelsea is a plea sant suburb, and I might get you a lodg ing cheap.' flartha thought a moment, and then replied that she did not think it would lie conveniently for the work by which she should gain her bread; that she should prefer a more northern suburb, though now she was become acquainted wi$h Mrs. Loxwood, she would visit her as often as time permitted. Beside these, however, Bertha had another motive: she knew that for a time her struggle with fortune would be a hard one, and she wished to hide its suffering and its detail from all knowledge but that of Maggy. 41 hope you will keep your promise of coming to see us,' said Mrs. Loxwood, * for Gyrus much wishes to have your acquainta...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. * ANNA'S TALE-TOO COMMON AND TOO TRUE. ?ANNA, a little girl, rises to meet her two friends, LVCY and JANE. Anna.-Welcome, dear friends. To see you I'm so glad; For do you know my heart is somewhat sad. JAN*.-Sad! dearest Anna, what can make it so? Your cheeks appear with sunny beams to glow All the year round, and, let what may betide, One pleasant smile seems on your face t' abide. Is't not so, Lucy ? LUCY.-Yes, indeed, my friend; And often as to school our steps we wend, The strange phenomenon we talk about, But never can the secret quite make out. JANE.- Perhaps Anna will the mystery now disclose. ANNA (smiling).-You^make me smile in spite of all my woes; But since you ask me in so kind a way,' 'Twould be the height of rudeness to say nay. Yet I've no marvellous secret to declare, Which well might make your wandering spirits stare: I simply take a lesson from that Book, On whose blest page we all with reverence look; And, having learnt its high behests t' ob...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 July 1859

CHAPTER Farewell-a word that hath been, and must be A word that makes us linger yet-farewell. CUILDE IIAKOLD. THE bright sun beaming through the fissure9 of the slab wall, earl}' awakened the travellers. Aylmer found his horses were uninjured, and one of the men un dertook, with the help of a few yards of rope, to make the carriage serviceable The woman produced some damper and strong tea as a breakfast for her visitors. Graham had already taken his de parture. The heavy rains had produced their usual effect in brightening and refresh ing the foliage; the sun-beams were tempered by the mist, which, like a veil of silver gauze, hung round the moun tain. The organ and bell-birds blended their plaintive notes, for at the hour of dawn may sometimes be heard the 'sweet concert of birds' at all other times so indescribably wanting in these vast forests. Gladly did Aylmer place hi? charge once more in the carriage: and the strange people they had seen, their \nexplieable conduct, their sin...

KATE STAFFORD. CHAPTER I. Who's here, beside foul weather.—KING LEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 July 1859

KATE STAFFORD. ;-«-; CHAPTER I. Who's here, beside foul weather.-KING LEAR. LATE in the afternoon of a sultry day in October, a gentleman's carriage stop ped at the little roadside inn which forrtis the resting place between Thornton and Wallawallah. Servants, children, and luggage, the tired horses, and the whole equipment generally, betokened the party to be in the course of a long journey.' The children, weary of the confine ment of the carriage, were disappointed at hearing they were to goon that night; a step determined by the earnest entrea ties of their mother, a pretty delicate woman, evidently a stranger in the colony, and apparently unfitted for its roughusages. The time of our story was before the year 1840; and a person with less delicate nerves than Fanny Aylmer might have shrunk from a road side inn of that period. 4 Never mind, Harry. You shall have a game of play with Aunt Kate among those trees, while the horses are fed; and we will see if those great coils are real...

DRINKS FOR TEETOTALLERS. [SECOND ARTICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 July 1859

DRINKS FOR TEETOTALLERS. [SECOND ARTICLE.] IN the moral history of nations, few countries escape a period of leaden lethargy. The doing of evil-the neglect of doing good-the free-and-easy spirit of society-are the standard manifesta tions of this condition. We believe we are n#w, in this country, passing-living -through this nnhappy phase. What prophet-what preacher-can awaken the slumbering crowds around us ? If we offer to improve public taste, to refine popular habits, to elevate the general mass of our fellow-mortals, how many will listen to ©ur teaching ? If an angel from heaven were to visit the earth and tell us not only what is good and best for us, as far as our immortal souls are con cerned, but our bodies also, would this reckless, self-seeking, gold-gaining, selfish, drinking, drunken world listen to his revelation ?-No, it wouldn't. We not know what our number of just m6n may be, but we well know the num ber of the reckless is indeed great. No thing save the Goodness wh...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OP THE HOME COMPANION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OP THE HOME COMPANION. SIR-I have read with surprise and pain the im portant parts of the article in your last issue, en titled ' Drinks for Teetotallers,' with surprise that so very mischievous a composition should not, by Yourself, have been recognised as such, and re jected at once, instead of coming forth with your sanction ; and with pain, because I fear it will lead astray some people who have resolved to be consistent teetotallers, and who are, in all good faith, shaping their course of life accordingly, yet are liable to be misled ; and also because the enemy, seeing the inconsistency as in times past, Will be heard to pronounce our abstinence from alcoholic beverages a pretence and a delusion : and judged in the light of the paper referred to, they would be correct in FO doing. You have given various receipts for making wine for the consumption ' of teetotallers.' I am neither chemist or brewer, therefore not prepared to say what is the alcohol...

THE ENGLISHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859

THE ENGLISHMAN. THERE'S a land that bears a well-known name, Though it is but a little spot ; I say 'tis the first on the scroll of fame, And who shall aver it is not ? Of the deathless ones who shine and live In arms, in arts, or song, The brightest the whole wide world can give To that little land belong. 'Tis the star of earth, deny it who can, The island home of an Englishman. There's a flag that waves o'er every sea, No matter when or where ; And to treat that flag as ought but thc free Is more than the strongest dare. Por the lion spirits that tread the deck Have carried the palm of the b\ ave ; And that flag may sink with a shot-torn wreck, j But never float o'er a slave. | Its honour is stainless, deny it who can, And this is the flag of an Englishman. _. - There's a heart that leaps with burning glow The wrong'd and the weak defend ; And strikes as soon for a trampled foe As it does for a soul-bound friend. It nurtures a deep and honest love, The passions of faith and pride...

CHAPTER XXI. A DAY IN THE WOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859

CHAPTER XXI. A DAY IN THE WOODS. FROM the date of his visit to the school-house, Walter's love for Liddy was a boundless thing. It overcame all other purposes, mastered all other pas sions, was ever present with him, and in depth and intensity had never been ex ceeded. It was, moreover, as pure as it was passionate. Not one sordid or sen sual idea sullied it : if he thought of Liddy, it was with the view of eventu ally making her his wife ; and when all the circumstances that would oppose such intention rose up before him, he ] would occasionally, with the impetuosity of youth, dismiss them from his thoughts and give himself to passionate worship solely. But there were soberer moments -moments when the consciousness of their difference of rank, education and breeding, was present with him, in the full vividness of stern reality. He would then strive to subdue his love, to calcu late its possible results with stern saga city, and resolve to leave the neighbour hood whilst she was the...
