Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. THIS society continues to hold its weekly meetings at the School of Arts. The only advantage that it at present is prepared to offer to the public is that of a course of free lectures; no charge being made for admission except on extraordinary occasions. On the 9th instant, the nature and properties of alcoholic liquors were ably set forth by Mr. G. J. Crouch, Alco hol was distilled from spirits, wine, and beer, in the presence of the audience. The lecturer remarked that wherever alcohol was found it denoted the destruction of sugar-on that it wholly depended for its production; that the difference between fermented and spirituous Ijquors was, that what are I termed spirituous are fermented first and then distilled, and that by this means they possessed a much larger proportion of alcohol. When the product of the three several distillations was set fire to at the close of the (lecture, the very liquors seemed to raise a voice of warning against their deadly...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
OUR MESSAGE. THE present number contains the closing chapter of " Old Caleb." The readers of the story we are confident, will part with it with regret; still we may men tion that we have the promise of the talented authoress that her pen shall still be employed in our behalf, though perhaps in another form. The progress and present state of the colony in some of its aspects is brought into view in the present mrnber. We would draw attention to a few suggestive remarks in the article in reference to the " Licensing Day." Those of our youthful readers who are not favourites at home, will read the sorrowsof the " Neglected Child " with feelings of sympathy. The continuation of " Henry Gardner" in our next.
Poetry. THE NEGLECTED CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
THE NEGLECTED CHILD. I never was a favourite, My mother never smiled Ou me with half the tenderness That blessed her fairer child. I've seen her kiss my sister's cheek While fondly on'her Itnee; I've turned away to &ide my tears There was no kiss ior me. And yet I strove to please, with all My little store of sense; I strove to please-and infancy Can rarely givQ offence. 0 Bat When my artless efforts met A cold, ungentle check, I did not dare to throw myself In tears upon her neck. I'm sure I was affectionate But in my sister's face There seemed to be a look that claimed A smile or an embrace! But when I raised my lip to meet The pressure children prize, None knew the feelings of my heart They spoke not in my eyes. But oh! my heart so keenly felt The anguish of neglect; I saw my sister's lovely form With gems and roses decked. I did not covet them-but oft, When wantonly reproved, I envied her the privilege Of being so beloved. But soon a time of triumph came A time of sorrow...
Old Caleb. By MRS. REBFORD, Author of "Annie Leslie, &c., &c. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
©Ib Caleb. By MRS. REBFORD, Author of " Annie Leslie, $c.T $c. (Continued from page 215.) CALEB was now able to offer poor Fanny and her little one a home, and he was not tardy in doing so. " Fanny," said he, " will you come and live with me and Rachel, if you do not hate us for his sake who has treated you so ill ?" " Hate you and Rachel," said Fanny, " oh, no, never ; I will gladly come, and be a dutiful and loving child to you. I hope more dutiful and loving than I was to that dear © father who is gone." So Caleb took the stricken one to his home. In a few months the cottage and garden were quite a picture; the flowers grew up around the house, and busy bees and painted butterflies came there to sip the sweets. Caleb soon found employment, and in his spare time he cultivated vegetables, which Rachel sold at the market in the town. They began to love the cottage almost as well as the dear old farm. Fanny was indeed a loving daughter to them, and the little Jenny shared largely of ...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. NIGHT THE FIFTH SOME OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF TAVERN-KEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
®£it in % Jlwiit.fV^gyoney) BY T. 8. ARTHUR. (Continued from page 222.) NIGHT THE FIFTH SOME OP THE CONSEQUENCES OF TAVERN-KEEPING. NEARLY five years glided away before businsss again called me to Cedarville. I knew littl^ of what passed there in the interval, except that Simon Slade had actually been indicted for man slaughter, in causing the death of Morgan's child. He did not stand a trial, however, Judge Lyman having used his influence very successfully in getting the indictment quashed. The judge, some people said, interested himself in Slade more than was just seemly-especially as he had, on several occasions, in the discharge of his official duties, displayed what seemed an over-righteous indignation against individuals arraigned for petty offences. The impression made upon me by Judge Lyman had not been favourable. He seeded a cold, selfish, scheming man of the world. That he was an unscrupulous politician, was plain i to me, in a single evening's observation of his sayings ...
A MUTUAL ATTACHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 18 July 1857
A MUTUAL ATTACHMENT. As a lady was walking a short time ago, a gentleman's button caught hold of the fringe of her shawl. Some moments elapsed before the parties were separated. ' I am attached to you,' said the gentleman, good-humour edly, while he was iudustriously trying to get loose. ' The attachment is mu tual, sir,' was the equally good humoured reply. Facts are to the mind the same thing as food to the body. On the digestion of facts depends the strength and wisdom of the one, just as vigour and health depend upon the other. The wisest in council, the ablest in debate, and the most agreeable com panion in the commerce of human life, is he who has assimilated in his understanding the greatest number of facts.-Burke. An action cannot be perfectly good unless it is pure in its motives ; that is, unless the motives are virtuous, and I free from any vice.

CHE perusal of old magazines and newspapers is rather a favourite amusement of ours. Nor is it uninstructive to obtain from the more ephemeral literature of the past a glimpse of the manners and opinions of our more immediate predecessors, unattainable from their more important works. It is the study of ballads rather than of epic poems. Few who are not fond of this kind of reading can imagine the pleasure and profit derived from what might be styled, " The Curiosities of Opinion and Prophecy," if not " The Curiosities of Literature." A few days ago, while thus passing a leisure hour, we turned up *n article New South Wales, written in 1838, of which a few extracts with a brief commentary of our own may prove not altogether unamusing to the readers of the BAND OP HOPE JOURNAL. The article thus commences: Within the memory of thousands of people now living, the lonely coasts of Australia were scarcely visited but by the winds and waves. There lay, on the map of the world, a huge circ...
ANECDOTE OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
ANECDOTE OF NAPOLEON. NAPOLEON was accustomed to wear a coat of mail under his clothes, and which he rarely went without. On his departure once for Belgium, he thought it best to guard against those dan^ors with which he was threatened-hav ag all Europe leagued against him--by every means in his power. He accor dingly, sent for a clever workman, asked him if he thought himself compe tent to make a coat of such texture that no weapons whatever could pene trate. On the artificer answering in the affirmative, Bonaparte agreed to give 18,000 francs, the sum asked. On the day fixed, the man brought his work to the place. Napoleon quietly examined it, and ordered the workman to put it on himself. The man obeyed. Napoleon took two pistols saying, ' We shall now see if this coat of mail is of the texture you promised me.' He fired at bis breast, the cuirass resisted. ' Turn around.' The man obeyed. The second ball struck his back, with the same result. The poor artificer, half dead with fri...

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
CormpttkitM. SIR,-I have long contended that nothing would tend more to the Tem perance Cause in Sydney, as much as the introduction of Coffee and Chop Houses, after those in England; for many respectable youths are compelled to take their Luncheons at a Licensed Victualler's, that would gladly avail themselves of the former. If such were opened, I feel confident they would prove successful, and likewise profit able to those embarking in them. Perhaps a hint of this in your Journal, would induce some to start such places of resort, which- if given publicity to, would soon prove successful in all ways, last not least to the cause of Temperance. Sydney, July 24th, 1857.
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857

Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE FOR THE SUPPRESSION OF INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
IttMiniMtt. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE FOR THE SUPPRESSION OF INTEMPE RANCE. THE subject of temperance was urged by able advocates at the meeting at the School of Arts, July 23. Mr. B. Mountcastle took the chair. Two of the speakers, a Mr. Martin, and another whose name we do not know, spoke in a most powerful and convincing manner, and from what we could gather, they had never publicly taken part in the advocacy of the same subject before. Messrs. Crouch. Howitt, and Beavis in their usual forcible style pressed the truth of teetotalism upon the attention of those present. Last Thursday, July 30, a tempe rance meeting was again bctd. Next Thursday, the Rev. (George Mackie, of Kiama, will deliver a lec ture, subject-" The two Slaveries." The collection for the Temperance Hall progresses favourably. A deposit of £100 has been paid upon the ground proposed for its erection, situated opposite the Congregational Chapel, Pitt-street. The ground has a frontage to the street of 63 feet, with ...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
OUR MESSAGE. WE often, feel under great obligations to our non-teetotal subscribers, for their allowing us to discourse so continuously on our favourite theme. We could wish to present them with articles on a variety of subjects that we know they are interested in, but our very, very limited space will seldom admit of our doing so. We are sure that all of our readers will concede to us, that the abuses connected with the drinking customs deserve serious consideration. To bring these abuses to light is the work we propose to ourselves, and in doing so, subjects dear to us as individuals, and not less so as a community, must continually be brought into notice, and we feel that our non-teetotal readers will admit that the intense interest connected with these subjects in a great degree com pensates for their otherwise want of variety, Our temperance friends tell us that our JOURNAL is not teetotal enough, but then we know they-cannot speak unbiassed on (to them) so absorbing a subject....

(CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.) CHE doctrine of the natural equality of men is only true in its religious sense. It is false to assert that all men possess the same mental ami moral capabilities, or that all men should possess an equal amoun r of property. To the end of time there will be different classes, though wo trust the influence of pure Christianity will at no distant date make the tie.-, of relationship between them very different from what they are now. The important thing in estimating a nation's character is to observe what are the qualities possessed by those who, by the general voice of the community are elevated to the principal rank, and classed within the category of the "higher classes." When the " ideal " of Christianity is understood, of course they will be esteemed the highest who most nearly, in all that is gentle and beautiful in character, resemble HIM who was the first to testify that perfect goodness was absolute greatness. Next to elevation by character, the ho...
Dialogue BETWEEN MRS. DREW AND MRS. BRAY: TWO OLD SCHOOLFELLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
iialirpt BETWEEN Mas. DREW AND MES. BRAY: Two OLD SCHOOLFELLOWS. " MY dear friend Mrs. Drew-oh, how do you do ? What a very long time 'tis since I last saw you ; I'm so glad you've come early-you've not walked here, surely, You'd have come by the railway, both cheap and securely; Come, sit down and rest, for you're looking quite poorly. Is this your son Dan? why he's grown quite a man; And these your two daughters, Eliza and Ann? Dear me, how they've grown, out of knowledge I own; And pray how are the rest, Charley, Mary, and Joan ? I'm sorry you've left them in Sydney alone. Now, do come up stairs and take off your affairs, Let the girls come up with us, and they'll take off theirs, You've come for the day-now, now, do not say nay, 'Tis so seldom you come, you shan't hurry away, We can have a nice chat, and the children can play. You have been sorely tried since your poor husband died ; I'm sure for your troubles I often have cried. How you've borne them so well I declare I can't t...
SURRY HILLS ANNIVERSARY [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
