GOODWUN. A TALE OF TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 10 May 1856
GOOD WUK A TALE OF TRUTH. T is a tale of the trials and the C^7^>)=D triumphs of a moral hero of ëiltê humble birth,mo»t beautifully, l^¿g¿¿%? graphically, and pathetically written. The hero is the son of a man of business, who foolishly and sinfully re duced himself, and his wife and family, to beggary and misery, through intem perance. His drunken father diçd the one week, and his pious mother the next ; and Goodwun, having laid his last pa rent in the grave, was left an orphan in his fourteenth year. This is a true tale, and sadly interesting ; we fear it has many a parallel in this drink-blighted land. The poor orphan, with an inde pendence truly Scotch, that scorns to beg, leaves Aberdeen, the place of his early woes, and goes up Dee side in search of employment. As drink has been the ruin of his father, the death of his godly mother, and the imbitlerer of his youthful years, no wonder though he denounces it. Listen to his mourn ful tale, and learn to hate and shun the cause...
PART THE SECOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 10 May 1856
i PART THE SECOND. J Afraid of adding to the yet unpaid doctor's bill, Alice had not hitherto re : ceived advice respecting the ophthalmy j , which affected her. But now, as the sternest necessity was before her, as to work was to exist, as to be ill was to starve, she at once resolved to consult Mr. A-, the eminent occulist, ot whom she had heard noble things. She waited upon him with less hesitation than she otherwise would have done, ewing to her ability to proffer him bis fee ; the kind friends at Hastings hav ing sent her two sovereigns a few days previously through their banker's hands. But had she been a duchess, or a well known millionaire, Mr. A-- could not have behaved more nobly than he did ; he entered with singular interest into her case, gave a note to his own druggist for the necessary medicines, said she must take very great cate of herself,and bidding her attend regularly thrice a week, pressed back the fee into her hand with a gentle " you must not offen'l me."

TEMPERANCE versus INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 10 May 1856
! ÏEMPEBAJtfCE versus INTEMPERANCE. . To drink or not to drink-that is the question. Whether is it better for mankind to per petrate This vice, or become at once teetotal I From drink, what good do ve obtain % None. Then why drink at all, if not for good ] j The sober man, whose intellect is bright, Whose reason is not clouded with the fumes of drink- , Whose home is happy-and whose wife ' And children's faces give truthful index l Of their happy state of mind-will say " Thou should'st not drink at all." I Drink is the prime mover to all sorts^ of vice, To disease-to infamy-to murder-* And to sudden death. The murderer curses when too late The drink-for that it was, and nothing else, Which brought him-to the gallows ! Contrast the homes of those who drink With those who drink not, And see the difference :-? The one is lovely, for 'tis clothed. In the robes of happiness and contentment : No drunken brawls are there ; Peace and plenty are the lot of those who dwell therein ; The husba...

Notices to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 10 May 1856
Notices to Correspondents^. A C OTT START READER seems to have particularly* strong feelings, reaching a.stafe of disgust at a single' volition. Still we sympathise with him, and would desire to endeavor to administer a restorative at the/ earliest possible moment.- We would say that from the communication- being!- anonymous, what is in tended to be so cuttfatg loses its edge, and as to the! arguments, we feel it a compliment paid us, that our correspondent >houlá think that B , At s,-, "that have received a-degree ia the university" should be drawn' from their classical and studious repose to contest for the " paltry £b" (as he styles it), offered for an* e»sav cn water ; still it may be true, we hope it is. But it does not follow, because they are B.A.s that tney should sweep the course. The " Labourer's Daughter," who stood out so'brilliant in the comped tition for the .prize essay on the Sabbath, had not received a degree at a university ; and many of «hö best prizes given in...
Children of America. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
Children of America, A gentleman in Virginia, says Mr, Gough, had a boy six or seven years old, who wanted to sign the pledge of totalabstinence from intoxicating drinks; all in the family had done so, but the father thought him too young, and would not let him. After muchentreaty, per mission was given. Soon alter the father went on a journey. At one stopping-place away from the town, he called for some water. It did not come, so he called again; still he could not get it; but cider was brought, atuhbe ing very thirsty, he so far forgot himself as to drink that. When he got home, he related the circumstance. After he had finished, the little boy came up to his knee with his'eyes full of tears, and said, " Father, how far was you from James' rver when you drank the cider?" "fta'her more than fifteen miles, my boy." " Well," said the little fellow, I'd have walked there and back again, rather than have broken my pledge." Oh, God bless the children. We have thousands such as these chi...
England and the Maine Law. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
England and the Maine Law. The United Kingdom Alliance for the Total Suppression of the Liquor Traffic has prosecuted its operations very success fully during the past year, and already numbers upwards of 21,000| paying members, with a General Council of 500 noblemen, ministers, and gentlemen of influence. Articles of great literary merit and comprehansive grasp, in favour of a Maine Law, have appeared in the pages of the Edinburgh, North British, and Eclectic Reviews, Tait's Magazine and Chambers's Journal. This new movement bids fair to become one of the most important of the present day ; its success has already been much greater than could have been anticipated. The Alliance Weekly News, by its able advocacy and large circulation, has materially contributed to promote the principles of prohibition. In order more fully to bring the merits and great national importance of the suppression of the liquor traffic under the* consideration of the public, a pre mium of £100 was offered f...
Winter Evenings. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
Winter Evenings. How do you spend your winter evenings? " Tell me how you spend vour winter evenings," said a gentleman addressing a congregation of yonng men, " and I will tell you what position you will occupy in the world ten years hence." This portion of the day is yours for self improvement, for recreation, or for pleasure ; and its use or abuse will affect incalculably your future character. Do you spend it at the drinking saloon, the card-table, or as an idle lounger at low places of public amusement ? Do you waste your health, exhaust your energies, and debase your mind by vulgar pleasures?' Do you pass your winter evenings aimlessly, listlessly, doing nothing, or doing something, just as it happens ? Or have you set them apart for some definite and worthy pur suits? Have you-resolved to devote same to a course of valuable reading : some to a course of lectures *, some to the enjoyments of virtuous society; some to the house of prayer? Have you resolved to pass your evenings...
The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
The Glass of Gin. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 148.) " Work," he laughed, when she had gravely stated her business. " 1 scarcely thought your wanted such a thing Miss Clive." Startled by his words, and more by the tone of voice, Alice looked at him, and was confounded as she looked. But, scarcely a moment was left for doubt; with familiar licence, he put out his arm drew the young girl to wards hira, with the whisper, '* we'll make the matter easy, pretty one." Far quicker than he had spoken,i, Alice moved away, and now confronted him with a face which had but two expres sions-indignation and surprise. "Come, "he continued, with the same j familiatitv, " don't affect coldness ; it's not natural to lady gin drinkers." These two last words revealed the truth to Alice, and despair gave place to breath less indignation.. Nothing yet h.id ap palled her like the import of these few last words, implying a whole catalogue of sin and degradation. She stood so rigid, and with a face so blanched, as e...
At His Post. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
At His Post. In those scenes of confusion, flight, horror, and agony, which took place on the Atlantic steamer Arctic, which struck another steamer and sunk on the coast of America in four hours, and three hundred aouls perished, there is one act, between the time of her accident and her 'Sinking, which looms up with a mournful grandeur never to be forgotten -the firing of the signal gun. This duty belonged to Stewart Holland, a young man of the engineering depart ment* who, when all lus comrades j deserted the ship, faced the danger and stood at his post. i "About two hours after the Arctic was struck, the firing of the gun attrac ted my attention," says the third mate, " and I recollect when I saw Stewart, it strui-k me as remarkably strange that he alone of all belonging to the engi neering body, should be there. He must h ive had a good chance to go in the chief engineer's boat and be saved ; but he did not, it seems, make the slightest exertion to save himself, while there was ...

Out of the grogshop I've stepped in the street, Road ! what's the matter? you're loose on your feet; Staggering, swaggering, reeling about, Road f you're in liquor, past question or doubt. Gas lamps, be quiet-stand up, if you please, What ever ails yon 1 you're weak in the ; knees; Some on your heads-in the gutter some sunk Gas Iaaaps, I see it, you're all of you drunk! Angels and ministers! look at the moon Shining up there like a paper balloon, Winking like mad at me: - Moon !

Lead us not into Temptation. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
Lead ns not into Temptation. We remember once reading an account of a certain valley which while possessing every beauty that could chirm and captivate the eye, and presenting a scene of the most delicious repose and loveliness-was yet the abode where death reigned supreme,-for no living creature that should once breath the air of that valley, could hope for life. Poison hung over the place like a cloud, and woe to him who seduced by the delicious prospect, entered within the noxious circle. And if in nature there are scenes which at once delight and lead to des truction. so in society there are habits and customs which, though fraught with delight, and decked out with unnum bered heauti» s, are yet the bane of all life, and the destruction of thousands. And such is the custom that has joined the cup of intoxication to all our social habits. On the pleasant scenes of the birth day, the wedding, the social re-u»ion, nay, even around the sad and sacred precincts of the death chamber; ...
The Cup and the King. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
The Cup and the King. Cyrus,"when a youth, being at the court of his grandfather Cambyses, undertook one day, to be the «eup-bearer at table. It was the duty of this officer to taste the liquor before it was handed to the king. Cyrus, without performing this ceremony, delivered the cup, in a very graceful manner, to his grandfather. The king observed the omission, which he imputed to forgetfulness. " No," replied Cyrus, " I was afraid to tdste, before, I apprehended there was poison in t\e liouor ; not long since, at an en tertainment which you gave, I observed that the lords of your court, after drink ing of it, became noisy, quarrelsome, and frantic, even you, Sir, seemed to have for gotten that you were a king !
The Passion for Gaming. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
The Passion for Gaming. 1 The following anecdote shows the strength of this passion, when once it has gained the ascendancy: " A. coloured man, employed as a fireman on board a steamboai,between Cincinnati and New Orleans, lost ail his money at play with his companions. He then staked his clothing, which he also lost. Having nothing more, he laid down his free papers aud staked himself, loosing this time, also, he was actually sold by the winner to a slave dealer." What a power must this passionr have over a man, when he will play at the hazard of his own liberty, which most men esteem dearer than life ! Young man if you once contract this habit, you will have no power to restrain it. You will gra ity the passion at the hazard of every thing. My mother related ail anecdote of some young men, who retired to a garret to play at cards, where they could not he seen. There was an cpen cask of pow der in the room, and they had stuck a lighted candle into the powder, which served the purpo...
