KATE STAFFORD. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859
KATE STAFFORD. CHAPTER III. I *TÍ8 gone ! there's nothing there. I The waves have swept away the bubbling tide ; ¿right crested waves, how calmly on they ride. DANA. WE must return to the party, whose esôape from the storm we have described in the first chapter. No farther inci dent occurred till they arrived at their destination-a cottage on the banks of the Maruah. It stood on a small estate purchased for Aylmer by his agents. The place was sufficiently favoured by ( nature to encourage plans for improve ment; and many were the schemes which had been projected on board ship. But the rain, which had returned with violence, prevented for the present any active operations. This state of inaction did not improve Aylmer's temper. The servants constantly wanted things which were to be found at the bottom of large packing cases, and when these were un packed their contents were at the mercy of the children ; for the cottage afforded no room to put them away. Kate was glad when the first ...
THE FIVE NIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859
THE FIVE NIPS. BT JAMES DIXON. i A FIVE tradesmen in London were in the habit of meeting every evening abou eight at the Cheshire Cheese' a well known tavern in Fleet Street. These five jovial old gentlemen belonging to five different Companies, viz. the Gold smith's, the Fishmonger's, the Haber dasher's, the Draper's, and the Tailor's. But not one happened to be of the trade of his Company. For several years these five had sat in the same chairs, drank their beer from the same pewter pot, for each had a mark, smoked the same number of pipes and settled the affairs of the nation, more to their own satisfaction than either "Wel lington, Grey, or Canning. They were industrious men, never absent from their respective places of business from morning to night, had all amassed handsome competencies. In those days it was customary for tradesmen to frequent some respectable tavern in the evening, talking over the news of the day, and enjoy a pipe, a 'rummer,' or a 4 nip of Burton' -' every ...
QUACKERY AND LEGITIMATE MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859
QUACKERY AND LEGITIMATE MEDICINE. BY DB. BELL, CAMPBELLTOWN.. _ v A wise Physician skilled our ills to heal,. Is more than annies to the public weal. IT is very often, and with much truth, remarked, that in proportion to the in tensity of any folly, is the difficulty of eradicating it ; and there is scarcely any error-the glaring absurdity of which is to palpable-as that of quackery, and at the same time so difficult to convince people of its absurdity, contradiction, worthlessness, and danger. If the task were an easy one, the nos trums of empirics would soon be at a discount, and the mystifying, baser and unscrupulous advertisements of menda cious charlatans would be regarded in their right sense, and viewed as odious inventions put forward to serve private ends, though ostensibly under the pre tence of benefittirng the public. That volumes might be written on quackery is certain enough, and then the subject would not be exhausted : for there is so much of the Hydra-headed monster...

ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859
ADELAIDE. Dr. Whittle, long and pleasurably ex pected by his friends in this colony, ar rived, with Mrs. Whittle and family, by the ship Europa, from London, after a long and somewhat tedious passage. As soon as the arrival of the vessel was an nounced in Adelaide, a deputation of the officers and members of the South Aus tralian Total Abstinence Society was formed, and proceeded at once to the Port. After the presentation of an ad dress, Dr. Whittle rose and said he had been taken so much by surprise by the presentation of the address which had been presented to him, that he trusted he might be excused making any lengthy ! reply. Having but just landed on a strange shore, where, as he had supposed, he nräs scarcely known, it had afforded him the highest pleasure to find himself welcomed by friends and fellow-labourers in a cause to which he had devoted a considerable portion of his life, and pro ceeded in his remarks to say that the cause should have his fullest support.

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVEBPEN. (Continued from page 264.) BERTHA eventually addressed a decent ; middle-aged woman, who came towards her carrying a bundle, as though con taining work. Bertha was greatly struck by her intelligent, thoughtful sedate countenance. She might well be so, for the woman was Margaret Pool. When the street, which was near, had been pointed out, Bertha asked Margaret if she could give her any account of the widow's family as she had to speak to her on a somewhat painful subject, and it might facilitate her object if she could find an opportunity of seeing her alone. 4 That will be difficult, ma'am,' replied Margaret, in her turn greatly struck by Bertha's earnest and noble countenance, 4 for her daughters are mostly at home at work. But may, I ma'am, without im pertinence ask one thing - does your business relate to a daughter that did badly.' Bertha hesitated to reveal even thus much to a stranger, particularly on a point intrusted to her in confidence ; so sh...
The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. THE MORAL VERDICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859
%\t %MlwX\n ¡¡onu (fflittpaniffn, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. -1 THE MOEAL VERDICT. APART from the Law of the Land, with its penalties and its verdicts, there is a moral Jury which occupies the highest tribunal seat in the conscience, and which reaches offences beyond the pale of the law. Something of this moral inquisition is seen in Scotch Law, which pronounces upon accusations not legally proved, but of which, in the moral bearing there is little doubt of the guilt of the party, the sentence " Not proven "-a moral judgment, deeply affecting the reputation of the party. To this moral tribunal we appeal as to the rectitude of the Spirit Traffic. If the captain of a vessel engaged in the introduction of immigrants into our midst be not only legally criminal, but morally so, by landing on our shores those fearful diseases which undermine health and destroy life, such as smallpox, the cholera, plague, leprosy, &c" and his culpability be unanimously pronounced by a public verdict...

.MY INTENDED.' ; Is she not beautiful? Round face, rosy cheeks, ripe lips, and roguish eyes. Yes, it is her picture ; it is just like her. You may gaze your fill at it, old chum, for I shall not show you the original, not ?ret ; I am afraid of you, you are such a àvourite with the girls ; they all run away from me when "rou come. But she is all my own. We are promised to each other, and one of those days the knot is to be tied. Will you come and see us when we are married ? Angelica will always have the cloth laid for company, and look smiling and very good-natured when I bring a friend home to dinner. We have come to an understanding already, that there shall be no * washing-day,' and no periodical cleaning in our housekeeping, and con sequently no scolding or sulks. I am never to be savage, and she is never to pout. I shall not smoke cigars, and she will not put her head in papers. O, we shall be a model couple, I assure you ! I am never to go to market, or to the grocer's : such ...
HINTS FOR HOMES. MY WIFE'S LITTLE TEA-PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 July 1859
HINTS FOR HOMES. -+ MY WIFE'S LITTLE TEA-PARTIES. MY wife is celebrated for her little tea parties ; not tea-parties alone-but din ner-parties, pic-nic parties, music parties, supper parties, in fact, she is the life and soul of ALL PARTIES, which is more than any leading politicians of the day can boast. But her great forte is her little tea-parties-praised and enjoyed by everybody. A constant visitor at these little parties is Mrs. Hitchings, arid she remarks that she ' never knew any one who understood the Aart of bringing so many Aelegancies together' as my wife. Nobody makes tea like her, and how she makes it she will impart at a future time. But for her little ' nick-nacks,' as she calls them, which give a variety and a charm to the tea-table without trench ing too deeply upon our own pocket, she has been kind enough to give a few receipts upon the present occasion. NICE PLUM CAKE.-One pound of flour, I quarter of a pound of butter, quarter of a pound of sugar, quarter of a po...

THE beams of departing day gilded tower and tree, stream and forest glade -the possessions of the ancient family of Strathdean. There is something sadly sweet it the last rays of autumnal sun. The scene and hour remind us of the impending shadows closing over the day and year; and with the unfailing elo quence *tff nature, speak to the soul of man of those deeper shadows, which as surely, though it may be more slowly, await him in the tomb. Fondly the light seemed to linger on the landscape : still gleaming on turret and battlement : and pouring, with softened radiance, through a gothic case ment on the western front of the castle. The sunlight fell on the portrait of a young lady, well placed ab...

Time passed on, bringing little varia . tion to the monotony of Kate's life.

LIFE THOUGHTS. THE TRACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859
LIFE THOUGHTS. BY HENRY WARD BEECHER. THE TRACK. J NOT parties, but principles ! Let us be of no party but God's party, and use all other agencies as we use railroad car riages-travelling upon one train as far as it will travel in the sight direction, «nd then leaving it for another. RICHES.* No man can tell whether he is'rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich or poor according to what,"] he is, not according to what he HAS. STARS AND TRAVELLERS. Men have different spheres. It is for some to evolve great moral truths, as the heavens evolve stars, to guide the sailor on the sea and the traveller on the desert : and it is for some, like the sailor and the traveller, simply to be guided.
