SOIREE, i Seid ai the Prince of Wales Theatre on Thursday, June 25, in connection with the Alliance for the Suppression of Intempe rance, $c. HAVING referred to it elsewhere, we may just add that about 1500 sat down to tea, which number swelled up to nearly 3000 after tea ; that the greatest possible order was preserved throughout, and that the company separated about quarter to ll o'clock. From the very heavy expenses, the profits accruing to the society will amount to only a few pounds.

Statte of Itolis THE LIFE, EXPERIENCE, AND JOURNAL OF NATHANIEL PIDGEON, City Missionary : Written by himself. Published by Smith and Gardiner, Pitt-street. A small volume bound in cloth, bear ing the above title, has been published in Sydney within these few weeks, and for a recital of Christian enterprise and labour, surrounded by difficulty of no ordinary kind, it is not to be equalled in the colony. In plain and homely language the story is told-the energy, piety, and devotedness of the narrator forming its principle ornament. To those interested in the moral and spiritual condition of the people of Sydney, the information contained in the book will be considered an invaluable contribution, enabling them to tread in thought and safety the dark lanes and alleys - dens of iniquity -of this fair city under the direction of an experienced and faithful guide. We would recommend each of our readers (at least each family) to obtain one and read for themselves. The price (4s.) is within...
RICHMOND, VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
RICHMOND, VICTORIA. A correspondent forwards us the following which, though in time for last issue, was omitted for want of space. " The Richmond Band of Hope held their first festival in St. Stephen's Schoolroom on Monday, May 25. Above one hundred children were present to discuss the good things provided. Above the platform floated the temperance standard. R. Heales, Esq., M.L.A., occupied the chair, and opened the after proceedings in an excellent address, mentioning that he had been an abstainer since he was fourteen years of age. The meeting was afterwards addressed by the Rev. J. P. Sunderland, Charles Read, Esq., MX.A., and other speakers. The speaking being interspersed by singing and recitations by the children. Upon the name of Mr. Barwood being men tioned as Treasurer acclamations long and joyous spoke eloquently of the high estimation in which that gentle man was held by the children, along with Messrs. Seymour and Emerson. Mr. Burt read the report, from which it appeare...
The Alliance Temperance Soiree. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
Wat Miauet (tarnma Steint. o ^ THE Grand Soiree last night was a glorious sight, Eclipsing all others as day does the night. Since the pioneer band first peopled this land, There never was witnessed a scene half so grand : To describe it, 'twould all Fowler's talent demand. Why the very first glance would a stoic entrance, Or make a prim Quaker with ecstacy dance, To see thousands of eyes, bright as stars in the skies, And sweet faces the loveliest flower scarce outvies - AU charming and bright as a vernal sunrise. There is naught aids a cause like the Ladies' applause, Their smiles will do more than a whole code of laws ; To see them last night in this great work unite, With such hearty goodwill, did our old heart delight, We declare we're in love with them all now downright. There were three thousand there, or more, we declare ; Many came in too late in the tea to take share. The music was grand, by the Eleventh's brass band, The programme by Crouch was most admirably plann'd, The...
FINNEY ON REVIVALS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
FINNEY ON REVIVALS. Resistance to the temperance refor mation will put a stop to revivals in a church. The time has come that it can no longer be innocent in a church to stand aloof from this glorious reformatien. The time was when this could be done ignorantly. The time was when ministers and Chris tians could enjoy revivals, notwith standing ardent spirit was used among them. But since light has beer thrown upon the subject, and it has been found that the use is only injurious, no church member or minister can be innocent and stand neutral in the cause. They must speak out and take sides. And if they do not take ground on one side, their influence is on the other. Show me a minister that has taken ground against the temperance reformation, who has had a revival. Show me one who now stands aloof from it, who has a revival. Show me one who now temporizes upon this point, who does not come out and take a stand in favour of temperance, who has a revival. It did not used to be so, But ...
HUNTING IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
HUNTING- IN CALIFORNIA. Never regret the want of bread with j your meals ; parched Indian corn will do as weil. Neither fret for your wine ; some pure water out of the rivulet, drunk out of the hollow of your hand, will be better : it will be the most cooling and refreshing beve rage after an exciting day's hunt. Thus, after a three or four months' hunting, good living, free exercise in the pure air of the country mountains, you will return to the town you started from as stout as a Trojan."-Dr. Coulter s Adventures, p. 176. j -National Temperance Chronicle.
IMPORTANT TRUTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
IMPORTANT TRUTHS. No man can safely go abroad that does not love to stay at home ; no man can safely speak, that does not willingly i hold his tongue ; no man can safely govern, that would not cheerfully ! become a subject ; no man can safely I command, that has not truly learned I to obey ; and no man can safely j rejoice, but he that has the testimony j of a good conscience. - Thomas A'Kempis. The true secret of living at peace with all the world is to have a humble opinion of ourselves. True goodness is invariably accompanied by gentleness and humble-mindedness. Those people who are always "sticking on their dig nity," are continually losing friends and making enemies, and fostering a spirit of unhappiness in themselves. A child, when asked why a certain tree grew crooked, replied, " Somebody trod on it, I suppose, when it was young." How painfully suggestive is that answer.
Selections. NEVER DESPAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
Stltiftons. A WANT of faith in their own abilities to do something, and to be something, has been the ruin of thousands. It is the rock upon which the hopes of many a prosperous voyage of life have been wrecked. With the first blast of adversity we are too willing to yield, and we suffer ourselves to be driven before it ; until having lost sight of every star of Hope, we calmly resign ourselves to despair, and spend our life-time in miserable inaction, repining over Our hard fate, and making all around us unhappy by our wailings of bitter discontent. Never despair ! What though your barque may be rudely tossed upon Fortune's billows, and the clouds obscure the light which has guided you on your way! What though calamity, wave after wave, beats upon you, and the stormy vicissitudes of life threaten to overwhelm ! Never despair! High up in the heavens, above clouds and storms, above the warring elements, the bright sun shineth still, without a cloud to mar the brightness of his rays, ...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 4 July 1857
Ctn fflqj$s in a $5ar-$lij0in. BT T. S. ARTHUR. ( Continued from page 206.) IT was my fourth evening in the bar-room of the " Sickle and Sheaf." The company was not large, nor in very gay spirits. All had heard of little Mary's illness ; which followed so quickly on the blow from the tumbler, that none hesitated about connecting the one with the other. So regular had been the child's visits, and so gently exerted, yet powerful, her influence over her father, that most of the frequenters at the "Sickle and Sheaf" had felt for her a more than common interest; which the cruel treatment she received, and the subsequent illness, materially heightened. " Joe Morgan hasn't turned up this evening," remarked some one. " And isn't likely for a while," was answered. " Why not ?" inquired the first speaker. " They say the man with the poker is after him." "Oh, dear! that's dreadful. It's the second or third chase, isn't it ?" " Yes." " He'll be likely to catch him this time." " I shouldn't wond...
NEW SOUTH WALES. HAY STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
NEW SOUTH WALES. HAY STREET. On Friday, July 24, Mr. J. Druery on " Science." ERBATA.-Many of our readers were, 110 doubt, struck with the odd calculation made in the first article in last number. How so glaring an error could have passed so many eyes before publication, and not be detected, seems strange; but that it was not done till too late, is evident. Of one thing we are confident: that none of our readers read it as written to deceive. They could only look upon it as a piece of gross carelessness on our part. It should have read, £1 15s.,'instead of £5 5s.; and £21, instead of £63, and acres to correspond.

Selections. A MODEL PUBLIC HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
sfktions. A MODEL PUBLIC HOUSE. I BEING on a short tour of' pleasure, a few weeks since, my curiosity ]ed me to the little village of Kirkby, in the county of Leicester, about two miles from the celebrated battle-field of Bosworth, where for the want of (I could not say better or more respectable accomodation, but in the absence of) a temperance hotel, I was obliged to put up at a public-housev called the Roebuck Inn. On arriving at the house, I was ushered into a large, com fortable. and well-furnished room ; the centre and side tables were covered with the leading newspapers of the day, journals, periodicals, &c., and a copy of the Alliance Weekly News actually made one of the number. A large bookcase occupied one side of the room, well stored With useful, instructive, and interesting works of history, travels, the sciences, &c.; but that which ex cited my curiosity most was the follow ing inscription, painted in large letters over the fire-place ; May he who has l...
