Gardening. BEANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
febtning. BEANS. These require a strong rich land, as they are a very exhausting crop. A cold, wet soil, will not do for them, unless it has been first well trenched, dressed with lime, and fallowed for a season. Beans «re of two varieties, as broad beans and French beans. There are seven kinds of broad beans : the early Lisbon, the dwarf mazagan, the early long-pod, the green loug-pod, the mazagan, toker, and broad Windsor. The three first are early beans, the fourth and fifth occasional crops, and the two last best suited for a main crop. The seeds should be sown in a double and south, the rows being three feet row, and with a broad drill running north apart. As soon as the young plants show their first blossoms it will be time to sow for a succeeding crop. Early cabbages may be planted between these rows, and as the former are removed, the ground should be well forked, and a small quan tity of manure added,, if necessary. A blight known as the black dolphin often attacks beans wh...

Selections. ANECDOTE OF BINNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
Solutions, ANECDOTE OF BINNEY. Mr. Binney is the most eccentric of preachers; innumerable legends float about, descriptive of Tiis manifold oddi ties ; perhaps they are few of them to be wholly believed, perhaps every one of them has some foundation, when it is remembered that he is a man capable of saying anything-at any time-any how. It is said that Dr. Harris-1-then John Harris^ of Epsom,- once invited him to supply a gap in the anniversary services ot' his chapel, made by the illness of the ?expected preacher. " But you know, Brother Harris, a man can't go in this way; to-morrow, you say ? I am quite unprepared, you know. No, no; get somebody else." " Oh ! for that, you know," rejoined he of Epsom, "any sermon from you will do; preach that sermon you gave to them at - " Oh, very well, very well; then I'll come." He went, preached, got on very well through two heads of discourse, then stopped, looked down over the pulpit, '.Brother Harris, what was thirdly?" and Brother Harris ha...

L. s. d. SKETCH THE SECOND.—RECOLLECTIONS OF AN OLD LADY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
f. 8. Jr. BY THE AUTHORESS OF " OLD CALEB." SKETCH THE SECOND.-RECOLLECTIONS OF AN OLD LADY. SWEET, even at this distant period, is the remembrance of my childhood's home ; and as I sit by my now lonely hearth, memory, all powerful memory, carries me back to its smooth lawns, its wide-spreading chestnut-trees, its brave oM oaks, and its stately elms. There was a row of fine filbert-trees too, where the saucy red squirrel knowingly cracked his nuts, dropping the shells at our feet as if in mockery of our inability to reach the clustering fruit; then he hopped blithely from sprig to sprig, till we could fancy he was saying, " Catch me if you can." My father too, ah! methinks I see him now with his noble figure, his finely chiseled features, and keen but benevolent eye beaming with intelli gence and goodness. The poor blessed him as he passed along, and the good and virtuous called him friend. And then my sweet sister, with her bright eyes and glossy ringlets. She was some ten years ol...
The Children's Portfolio. WHAT A CUP OF CIDER DID. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
Cj)t (EijHbrm's ^portfolio-. WHAT A CUP OF CIDER DID. MANY years ago, before steam car riages and railways were thought of, when stage coach travelling was in © . fashion, and ten miles an hour consid ered an enormous speed, I had occasion to undertake in England, what was in those days thought a long journey about fifty miles. Accordingly, one bright June morning, I aro§e with the lark, ma&lt;le a hasty breakfast, and took my departure. It was a beautiful day ; the sun shone clear and bright, over meadow and hill, and the wild woods rang with the joyous songs of the birds. But soon all this was changed, slowly slowly a dark cloud which had been peeping over a ridge of hills, spread itself over the sky, and the rain poured in. torrents. I looked around for a place of shelter, and at length saw a little further up the road, in the midst of a clump of trees at the edge of a wood, a small cottage which proved to be a keeper's lodge. Hurriedly dismounting, I entered, as is the c...
Cour of a Leetotaller to Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
Cour of a ^dataller to Utelkmrc. " TURN a-head," said the portly cap tain of the Royal Mail Steamship " Australasian," as the bell struck four 011 the afternoon of the 11th June hist. The roaring of the escape steam ceased, and a noise beneath like a sub terranean volcano assured me that the engines were in motion, and very soon the white foam was flying from the bows of the noble vessel as she sped through the blue waters of the Pacific. " You will please to excuse the roughness of the luncheon to-day, sir," said one of the numerous saloon ser vants to me as I seated myself at a long table abundantly supplied with cold fowls, hams, and joints of various kinds. The apology was needless; and as I helped myself to the wing of a chicken, I thought I should be glad to be assured that I should fare as well every day during my contemplated tour. What can that noisy blast on the horn mean ? I inquired of myself, as I reclined on a sofa in my comfortable cabin, about an hour and a-half afte...

At the conclusion of the ceremony a bouquet, composed of violets a...
WHAT IS TO BE DONE? [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 17 July 1858
WHAT IS TO BE DONE? C^tHEN we see some fearful evil impending over a community, or the fljfH, enemy as it were at our gates-our prosperity threatened-our personal safety jeopardised-our lives placed in the balance-in the emergency of the moment, the inquiry generally arises, What is to be done ? Men bewildered, and possessing no originality of thought-no fertility of invention, look around in every direction for some master mind to awaken and lead them on to deliverance. The world, in fact, has but few master minds; and the generality of men, instead of being originators, are mere copyists, following each other's foot steps, whether it be in the fashion of a coat, or in an expedient to avert an evil. The current of human thought, like the wind, flows in one direction, whether right or wrong, until a master mind alters its course. Such, then, is the great question of intemperance. Drunkenness poured in upon the most highly Christianised nations of Europe and America like a flood, thr...

The Holy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 31 July 1858
Cjje fjaljj Homes. BY 8ILVERPEN, (Continued from page 237.) AFTER much further weary search through innumerable hot and foetid smelling streets, and mounting up and down so many stairs, that it seemed a process like a treadmill, they observed the ticket of "Lodgings to let" in the window of a private house, on the door of which was a brass plate, subscribed " Tadcaster, jeweller. Repairs neatly executed." A faded, care-worn woman, who had peeped over one of the parlour blinds as they knocked, opened the door. Without answering them, she went along the dirty passage to the top of the kitchen staircase, and calling " Mrs. Tadcaster, here are people wanting lodgingsshe retreated to her parlour with work of a light gauzy texture that she appeared to sewing. Thus summoned, the mistress appeared, with a baby at her breast, and led the Normans into a small, dull back parlour, apologising as she did so for its dusty appearance, by saying it was " Saturday." She was a comparatively young wom...
SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 31 July 1858
SECOND DAY. The members assembled in the school room at half-past two o'clock for a walk in the Domain, where they dispersed for an hour's play, and returned to tea at six o'clock. An abundant supply of cake gave great satisfaction. After tea the secretary said that five essays on " The Duty of Christians abstaining from IntoxicatingDrinks/'had been received; for the three best of which the following works were given-" Di\ Kitto's Biblical Concordance," " Memories of Germesaret," and the latest volume of Lectures to Young Men." All the essays, especially those winning the first and second prizes, were written remark ably well, but from want of time, only one of them was read to the meeting. After a few remarks were made on the past year, Mr. Griffiths, with his Welsh tire, enlivened the meeting for a feW minutes, when a vote of thanks to the gentlemen who have assisted the society during the year, in giving lectures, &c., was moved and seconded by two members, and carried wi...

About 200 sat down to tea, which was afterwards augmented to 300. At half-past seven o'clock the Rev. James Voller, in a few preliminary remarks, opened the meeting, when the secretary read a gratifying report of the past year's operations. [From want of space its publication is deferred until next issue.] Its adoption was moved by Dr. Charles, and seconded by Mr. H. B. Lee. Three recitations then followed, consisting of conversations between '. Conscience and Wholesale Dealer," " Conscience and Retailer," and a selection from a new prize tale, entitled, " The Burnish Family." In these pieces, as well as in the speeches preceding, the drinking customs of the present day were shown to be inconsistent with the spirit of the Gospel, and, therefore should not be sanctioned by the Church of Chr...
