THE HOLY HOMES. BT SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 285.) LiDDT burst into tears, and made no ' answer till she was addressed again. The she said, she was sure she would like Mr. Walter, and be very grateful to be taught what she desired to learn, but added that she did not think that her father would allow her to learn music and other things, the more for that, nor indeed in his stern way of wishing to do all needful things for his children, would he permit others to pay for any portion of their education. * I dare say you are right, Liddy, and his natural feeling of independence shall be respected. Lady Jane shall speak to him, and if between us we can do some thing for you, we shall be glad. Now, I am the bearer of some good news to all the school girls.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. FIRST EMPEROR OF ROME. [B. C. 46 TO B. C. 42.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, j -?- I ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. FIRST EMPEROR OF ROME. [B. C. 46 TO B. c. 42.1 [ JULIUS CÄSAR was one of the most wonderful men that ever lived. He con quered by his extraordinary bravery and skill almost the whole of the world known in his day ; but he had many faults ; for though he was very clever, he only stu died how to make himself a powerful man, and cared little for the happiness of others. He fought battles against the friends who had been kindest to him, whenever he though that they stood in his way, till at length he became such a tyrant that no one ventured to contra dict him ; and he killed thousands of people, and led his own soldiers into the most bloody wars, only to make himself famous in the world, that he might be feared by all men during his life, and remembered and talked about long after his desth. Julius Casar lived forty years before Christ came into the world. He, perhaps, never heard that is was his duty to be humble and peaceable,...
HOW TO WOO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859
HOW TO WOO. -? THE following advice was sent in answer to an enquiry upon the subject : ' When the gentleman has somewhat familiarised himself with the lady, and perceived that he is not, at all events, an object of aversion or ridicule, he should seek a favourable opportunity, and speak to this effect :-' I have come (miss, or madam, as the case may be) to take a probably final leave of you.' The lady will naturally ask the reason ; when the lover can add (and if he is a fellow of any feeling, the occasion may give a depth of tone and an effect to his elo quence, that may turn the beam in his favour, if it was an even balance before) : -' Because, madam, I find your society has become so dear to me that I fear I must fly to save myself, as I may not dare to hope that the suit of a stranger might be crowned with success/ No more-we single men may think it short-but there is actually not a word , more. Naid or widow, whichever she may be, * crowned with success/ is the last she will ...

By passions all untorfcured. quiet lies, Untorn by anguish-undisturbed by sighs.

SYDNEY UNIVERSITY FESTIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859
-? SYDNEY UNIVERSITY FESTIVAL. THE greatest musical treat ever afforded the inhabitants of this colony has just concluded, in celebration of the opening of the Sydney Uni versity. To judge by the large attendance on «ach of the days, the immense efforts made to present a real musical treat, have been fully ap preciated. The glorious compositions of the Creation and the Messiah, were rendered in a manner highly creditable to the amateur and pro fessional musicians. The exertions of Mr. Lavenu, the conductor, have been continuous throughout the long period of preparation for these concerts, and certainly the result has proved a triumph. The chorus numbered 250 voices, pupils of Messrs. Cordner and Chizlett. The Orchestra was very numerous and efficient, playing with great pre cision and brilliancy. Handel's Messiah was twice performed, on Tuesday and on Friday; Haydn's Creation on Wednesday. A full and attentive audience greeted these marvellous com positions on each occasion. A misce...

THE DYING GIRL TO HER MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859
THE DYING GIRL TO HEB MOTHER. ^. - THE scenes are closing round me, Fast sets my young life's sun ; My sinking frame now warns me Life's sand is almost run. I am dying, dearest mother, Ah ! feel my throbbing heart My spirit, like a poor caged bird, Is struggling to depart. The rosy bloom is gone, mother, From my poor faded face ; And girlhood's joyous sunny smiles Sharp piercing pains erase. Tour Mary's soft blue eyes, mother, Which oft in days gone past Hare beam'd on you in fondest love, Are by Death's film o'ercast. Around this once well-rounded form. Where health and strength combin'd, Disease, with fatal, withering power, Its snake-like coils entwined. But, ah ! I'm going to heaven, mother, E'en now, by faith, I see Its golden streets and pearly gates, And angels beckoning me. Darlinghurst. Though Death's dark Talley lies between; I've neither doubt nor fe« At its dread gloom : I calmly smile, I feel my Saviour near. See those bright stars above, mother, Like diamonds in the sk...

My whole's a periodical ordained ' -Amusement with nstruction to combine.
DRINKING FOUNTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859
DRINKING FOUNTAIN. WE have much pleasure in presenting our readers with the above Engraving, (.copied from' the Illustrated Times) of the first drinking fountain erected in London, at the south-east corner of St. Sepulchre's churchyard, in Skinner-street, Old Bailey. The fountain is neatly ex ecuted, and the design is both simple and serviceable, with a touch of ornament about it most gratifying to the eye. In a recess hewn out of the churchyard wall two small pillars are fixed, from the top of which springs a semi-circular arch, neatly moulded; the sides of the recess, with the arch itself, are of polish ed Aberdeen granite. In the centre is a tastefully wrought marble shell, through an orifice in which the water will flo nv into a bowl of white marble, also highly polished. The setting is finished with cement coatings, ornamentally executed in relief, materially heightening the effect of the diminutive work it encloses. % Deeply cut in the cement of the major arch is the inscripti...

GENTLE ANNIE.* TH»Ü wilt come no more, gentle Annie, Like a flower, thy life did depart ; Thon art gone, alas ! like too many That have bloom'd in the summer of my heart Shall we never more behold thee Never hear thy winning voice again, When the spring time comes, gentle Annie, "When the wild flowers are scatter'd o'er the plain. We naive roam'd and lov'd mid .the bowers, When thy downy cheeks were in their bloom : Now I stand alone, 'midst the flowers While they mingle their perfumes o'er thy tomb.

The European passengers had, as usual sat down to dinner in the saloon, off Lan tao, when the Chinese left on deck and about the boat, by a preconcerted move ment, suddenly knocked the mate and the man at the wheel on the head, threw them overboard, seized the arm-chest, which was on the bridge, with its cut lasses and ready-loaded muskets, and began firing down on the passengers. The captain (Wynn) and Mr. Cleverley seized their revolvers, and rushed up the ladder. The former was cut down as he reached the deck, and falling on the latter, they were both thrown back into the...
