Notices of Books. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 31 July 1858

THE AUSTRALASIAN BAPTIST MAGAZINE, 24 pp., demy 12mo; price, 4d., or 3s. per annum. W. Fairfax and Coi, Melbourne. THE first number of a new monthly publication bearing the above title has been placed in our hands. It is designed for general circulation over the colonies as the organ of the church whose name it bears. We rather think its small size prejudices its appearance. Though not concurring in all the sentiments it ex presses, its contents appear to us to be truly evangelical, and well calculated to disseminate the principles of Christianity among its readers. It should command, and well deserves a large circulation. Agent in Sydney, G. R. Addison, George street South. TUB AUSTRALIAN SUNDAY SCHOOL MONI TOR, 16 pp. crown 8vo. Price, Id. H. Bancroft, Parramatta-street. This little- work, started by its enter prising publisher at so cheap a rate, seems in every way adapted to interest its youthful readers. The tales and sketches it contains have evidently been carefully prepared,...

A MEETING of the ministers, stewards, leaders, and a number of the members of the Wesley an Church was held in the Bourke-street School-room on the 19th inst.. when the following resolution was unanimously agreed to " It is now an admitted fact by even the most determined opponents of total abstinence that intemperance is fearfully on the increase, and that throughout this city and colony its dire effects are too apparent. Being fully convinced of this j lamentable fact, the ministers, office- | bearers, and members of the Sydney j East Circuit, now assembled, feel it to be \ their duty as members of that section of | the Church of Christ which has hitherto, j through the blessing of Almighty God, : been the honoured instrument of so much j good to the world at large-to use their i utmost efforts, unitedly and individually, j to stay the course of this moral pestilence, j With this object in vie...

Poetry. ON LAYING THE FIRST STONE OF THE NEW TEMPERACNE HALL, SYDNEY, BY MISS DENISON, ACCOMPANIED BY SIR WILLIAM T. DENISON, JULY 14, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 31 July 1858

ON LAYING THE FIRST STONE OF THE NEW TEMPERANCE HALL, SYDNEY, BY MISS DENISON, ACCOMPANIED BY SIR WILLIAM T. DENISON, JULY 14, 1858, THE Ruler whom the people lov'd In days of old, was he who led Their serried ranks, in danger prov'd Where Carnage stalk'd and Battle mov'd, And freemen for their freedom bled : Round the war-hero's stately tread, Gather'd the people's mutter'd trust; The hand, the deepest stained with red, And soil'd with conflict's thickest dust, Was best obey'd, was most ador'd : The strongest arm, the longest sword, Acknowledg'd King, acknowledg'd Lord. And still-who guards his country's fires, From foreign despot's loathed thrall, Lives rightly honour'd, and expires, With youths and men and deep-eyed sires, Wailing in sorrow round his pall - Him, on whom God bestow'd the power To save his land in danger's hour. If there are foes, more deadly far, Than foreign arms or hostile band ; More strong the soil's best strength to mar, Than all the terrors of the war, Subtl...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 31 July 1858

<7^HE foundation stone of the Temperance Hall is laid at last, and a goodly U / structure of hopes has already been built upon it, which we trust will prove as solid as the mass of rock itself around which so much interest has gathered. Auspicious, indeed, to the friends of the great reformation of this nineteenth century is the event. Australia made a gala for her sons that day. No wintry cloud hung o'er her sky, But fair celestial blue in mighty arch. Soft southern sunshine gilded all the scene, While gentle zephyrs, like neat waiting maids, Swept up the path for infant feet to tread. We base upon that foundation stone the hope that temperance principles will gain some consideration from those who lead public opinion, or give to social circles their character and tone. Birth and beauty often lend to the winecup its richest hue and most fascinating charm. Who can withstand the witchery when lustrous eyes make eloquent appeal for us to pledge them quenchless light? Were t...

CHAPTER III. THE APPLESHAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 31 July 1858

CHAPTER III. THE APPLESHAWS. The same day that saw Giddy's cage in its new place, and the artizan's two rooms at the jeweller's neatly furnished and arrayed, Joe Appleshaw, his wife, and children approached London. Fail ing to obtain further work by the way, Joe, at Nelly's suggestion, turned aside no longer to obtain it, but proceeded on direct to town, which, weary and footsore, they reached at the close of day. Passing over Blackfriar's Bridge, whither they had been directed, and on which the3r lingered for some minutes to gaze down with rustic wonder on the splendid liver sweeping far below, they had little difficulty in finding the no torious locality of Saffron Hill and its surrounding streets. But it was not so eas}' to make out the exact house they sought. For though many of these pur lieus were thronged with idle loungers, though the doorsteps and windows were mostly ciowded with women and children, whose features in the mingled twilight and scanty gaslight looked still mor...

Solutions ALTHOUGH benevolent men cannot do all the good they would, their duty is to do the good they can.

The Children's Portfolio. THE TWO FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 31 July 1858

THE TWO FRIENDS. " WELL, Tom," said a lad of about seventeen summers to another of the same age, " where are you bound for?" " Well, I've not exactly made up tny mind; just wait while I step in here for a bundle of cigars. At any rate we'll have a smoke and a stroll." <c What Tom, do you smoke ?" " Smoke, of course I do, don't you ? you needn't look so bluff, I'm sure I've often seen you do a thousand times worse." " Well, Tom, don't let us have any words about it; come, at any rate, we'll have a stroll and a chat." " Agreed. By-the-bye, Harry, did you see those youngsters walking about the town the other day ?" " Yes, Tom ; do you know who they are?" "Yes, I've heard they're a band of youngsters who have pledged them selves against taking any intoxicating beverages, even a glass of wine, which, I am sure couldn't hurt an infant They process to see harm in it, but I'm not the fellow to refu.se anything in that way, don't believe it."

REVIVAL OF RELIGION IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858

REVIVAL OF RELIGION IN AMERICA. The New York Herald gives an interest ing account of the religious services and revival at Button's Theatre, and says* that the Old Chambers' Street Theatre, formerly used by Palmo as an opera-house, was the scene of an interesting praver-meeting yesterday, under the auspices of the Young Men's Christian Association. The meeting was opened by our friend the Rev. T. L. Cuyler, who said, " At last we may con gratulate the defenders of the stage that a theatre has become a school of virtue, and not a school of vice, a house of prayer, and not a haunt of profanity ; a spot for the real tears of penitence, and not the scene of fictitious grief ovei the fictitious sorrows of the stage. For this let us give God the glory. To day for the second time in the his tory of New York, we set apart a disused play-house for a house of worship. Oh, what soul tragedies may have been enacted in this very building! l.et our services here be as solemn as eternity. Let us i...

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858

GOULBURN. We have much pleasure in presenting to our readers the following extract from a letter lately received by a gentleman in this city, from the Rev. John Watsford, of Goulburn, and which we have no doubt will be read with much interest by the many friends of that most indefatigable servant of Christ: " Tou will be glad to hear that we com menced a Total Abstinence Society here about three months ago, and have been doing pretty well. I have entered fully into it, but have not been able to do any thing in the meetings for the last month, as I have been at prayer-meetings every night in the week. "I lectured at Wesley Vale about a month ago, and about forty persons signed the pledge. " The Society will succeed if it is car ried on in the proper spirit. Teetotalism has suffered more from its friends than its enemies. We must persuade and con vince, not abuse the people." We heartily wish the Society success' and should be very glad if some of its members would, occasionally furni...

WHAT IS PRAYER? [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858

WHAT IS PRAYER? A little deaf and dumb girl was once asked by a lady, who wrote the question on a slate " What is prayer?" The little girl took her pencil and wrote the reply- V " Prayer is the wish of the heart." And so it is. All fine words and beautiful verses said to God, do not make veal prayer, without the sincere wish of the heart.

OUR SOLDIERS IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858

OUR SOLDIERS IN INDIA. During the last year, 40,000 men sailed from our shores for India. Thousands more will follow them during this and succeeding years to fill up the ranks of those cut down by war and the climate. Sir Charles Napier and Sir Henry Have lock have both borne testimony to the fearful fact, that more soldiers are sent to a premature grave in India through the ravages of intemperance, than from either the sword or the climate.

BATHURST STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858

BATHURST STREET. LECTURES-August 5. On Bands of Hope, by Mr. Houldsworth. August 12. New Zealand, by the Rev. Samuel Iron side. The following Report of this society was deferred from last publication WE have much pleasure in reporting that the past year has been one of progress to this society, and that its present condition is highly encouraging. About the time of our last annual meeting, much dissatisfaction was felt by some on account of the noisy and dis orderly meetings of the Bands of Hope generally. It was said that children brought up in well-conducted families had become rude through attending these meetings; and there was reason to fear that the evils resulting from this defect in their management would coun teract much of the good laboured for. The Committee have therefore regarded orderly meetings to be indispensable to the accomplishment of much good, and with this view, throughout the past year admission tickets have been issued to the boys at the close of the meetings...

^THE only test of the right use of knowledge," says an eminent writer, {Jy "is in its promoting the happiness of mankind." Whether we look upon animated nature, or among those relics of art and science which through naturalists, artizaus, and scientific men, surround us at every step, we cannot help exclaiming, How great are the blessings of the DIVINE CREATOR ! how bounteous are the supplies provided for the benefit of his creatures! If we step into the fragrant field on a dewy morn, we are reminded by the spangling drops in their graceful clusters-sparkling like crystal on the variegated herbage-that while we have reposed, nature has been at work to refresh her myriads of worlds in the insect tribe ; purifying the atmosphere, moistening the parched and feverish thirst of browsing herds; and both man and beast launch out again with refreshed vigour for the toils and trammels of the day. The gay swallow, whirling and twisting in its hasty flight, for means of sustenance, or of formi...

IMQ. LINES BY MILTON IN HIS OLD AGE. LATELY DISCOVERED AND PUBLISHED IN THE RECENT OXFORD EDITION OP THE POET' WORKS. We publish this poem of Milton's, as there may be many who have never seen it, but may wish to preserve it as the revelation of his old a^e, and the philosophy of his affliction and sorrow. There is in It a deep and significant, philosophy, which teaches the lessou of thankfulness to God, under all circumstances, since there is no position iu society, no condition in life, that has not its compen sation and peculiar blessings. I am old and blind, Men point to me as smitten by God's frown, Afflicted and deserted ef my mind Yet I am not cast down. I am weak, yet strong I murmur not that I no longer see Poor, old, and helpless, I the more belong, Father supreme! to thee. 0 merciful One, When men are farthest, then Thou art most near, When friends pass by, my weakness shun, Thy chariot 1 hear. Thy glorious face Is leaning towards me-and its holy light Shines in upon my l...

"EVERY LITTLE HELPS." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858

" EVERY LITTLE HELPS." " Robert, can't you get out to-night, and let us have some fireworks and fun ?" " Thank you, Charley," replied a little chubby-faced fellow, whose ap pearance betokened humble life, " I love best to be at home on dark wintry nights. When dear father has come home from the mill and has eaten his supper, he makes baskets, mother sews, and I read to them out of my library books. Mother says it is a good thing to make the most of (cor ners of time,' for last winter she sold the baskets for more than paid the rent. ' Every little helps,' she says, in these hard times, when bread is so dear."'
