BURWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
BURWOOD. Some lime ago we mentioned the probability of a Band of Hope being formed in this neighbourhood. We believe that want of accommodation has been the great obstacle ; this is now likely to be removed. A few Christian friends in the locality have determined upon raising a building that wilt be suitable for a Sabbath school, and for preaching in, and that will also answer for Band of Hope and other purposes during the week; and for the carrying out this object a tea and public meeting will be held on the ground-the gift of a gentleman in the neighbourhood-intended for the erection, on Tuesday, August 11, on which occasion ministers from the Congregational, Wesleyan, Baptist, and other churches, are expected to take part: among others named, are Mess.Eggleston, Cuthbertson, Beazley, Kent, Slatyer, Voller, Sharpe, and Whiteford. We understand a special train, without extra expense, will leave Burwood for Sydney after the meeting in the evening. Doubtless this will form to many a ...

A meeting is held every Wednesday night when the weather and the roads will permit.

Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. CONTINUATION OF HIGHT THE FIFTH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
in a BY T. S. ARTHUR. (Continued from page 238.) CONTINUATION OP NIGHT THE fIJTH. *' IT was thought in the beginning," said I, u that the new tavern was going to do -wonders for Cedarville." " Yes," answered the man, laughing, " and so it has." " In what respect ?" " Oh, in many. It has made some richer, and some poorer."! " Who has it made poorer?" " Dozens of people. You may always take it "for granted, when you see a tavern-keeper, who has a good run at his bar-getting rich, that a great many people are getting poor." " How so ?" I wished to hear in what way the man, who was himself, as was plain to see, a good customer at somebody's bar, reasoned on the subject. u He does not add much to the | general health. He produces nothing. He takes money from his customers, but gives them no article of value in return-nothing that can be called property, personal or real. He is just so much richer and they just so much poorer for the exchange. Is it not so ?" I readily assented to the pos...
Henry Gardner. CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 1 August 1857
Imp darker. JCV CHAPTER n. AFTER Jienry nad retired to ms room, Mr. Tucker stood for some minutes gazing vacantly at the table ; now and then uttering a bitter im precation on Henry, consigning him to an unmentionable abode of misery, and swinging to and fro with a sort of involuntary motion, no doubt caused by the copious libations in which he had indulged during the evening. "'Tis bedtime, I think," he soliloquised, "but this fellow's ranting has quite upset me. I shall not sleep, if I go' to bed." As he spoke, he poured a large portion of brandy into a tumbler, and adding about an equal quantity of water, swallowed half of the mixture; then, with a heavy sigh, he flung himself into an arm-chair near the table with his glass before him, and sat for some time in moody silence. At length he started up and emptied his glass, exclaiming, " Hang the fellow! I wish he had cut his-" A noise in an adjoining room startled him, and prevented the completion of the sen tence. "Eliza, is that ...
Our Moral Barometer. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
Moral litmnttfcr. STRAWS in the air show the current of the wind; very little things are often indices of very great events. The long line of quicksilver in the j barometer tells to the mariner the approaching storm, and warns that if i he wishes to ensure the safety of his ship he must quickly make all snug aloft. We think it is very much the same in the social world; and that our kind patrons may be able to read the signs of the times, we propose from time to time to indicate to them, by means of passing events what may be the state of the moral atmosphere by which we are surrounded; and in doing so, we do not consider that we are pledged to confine ourselves to any one class of events, but we shall bring before their notice whatever we may. think beat's upon the state of the social world. We were pleased to hear Sir Alfred Stephen (Chief Justice) express himself very strongly on the subject of drinking during the late trial of Kemp for robbing the Commercial Bank. His Honor put t...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
ftnrg darbntr. (Continued from page 246J A DREADFUL feeling of loneliness crept over her as she sat throughout that long dreary night. Her dismal reveries ; were occasionally disturbed by the plaintive whinings of her sick Ghild, or the incoherent mutterings of her besotted husband as he now and then partially aroused from his deep sleep, and rolled himself over only to Msume^his heavy snoring®, which re-echoed round the large and cheerless apartment. The watchman without, in loud and sonorous tones announced the time as hour after hour passed away, and oh ! what long hours they seemed to the poor weary watcher within. Her memory, as she sat silently gazing with her tear bedimmed eyes on her husband's helpless form which lay stretched at her feet, was busy in retracing some of the most prominent events of her past life; and although she had scarcely passed its meridian, her life had been an eventful one, and had been overshadowed by many dark clouds. Very few bright sunny days had f...
The Try Company. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
?h to fcrnm. A MANUFACTURER was travelling on a railway in company with a gentle man, his wife, and a little boy of some five or six years of age. The little fellow had a parcel in his hand and was trying, apparently in vain, I to unloose the knot in the string, [ when the stranger took out his knife and offered to cut the knot, saying, " You can't open it." The child immediately said, " Please, sir, Father does not allow me to say / cant-I belong to tlie " TRY COM PANY." The manufacturer was delighted with the remark, and watched the little member of the TRY Company until he exultingljf finished his task. " Right! Right!" said I, when I heard of the circumstance, we should have fewer dunces in schools, and many more clever, industrious youths and men in the land, if parents would teach their children not to say " I can't," but train them up as members of the TRY Company. Whenever I see a boy or girl diligently learning some difficult lesson, I say to myself, theres a member of the ...
REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
REVIEW. "THE WINDSOR REVIEW:" a Monthly Magazine. Published, at the *' Empire " Office. ON looking over this-one of the new periodicals that it the present time are asking tht ^ffrages of the reading world-our fir&v - vclamation was, " it will do" ; hut came the proviso, if the editor is detefiiined bravely to hold on through thick and thin, and to endure all the vexations and annoyances to which the editor of an Australian magazine is inevitably doomed. Glancing through its pages we were pleased with the variety of matter that they present. We find an article on " Practical Economy " that it would be well for all carefully to study. One passage we transfer as particularly adapted to our own pages A man who spends sixpence per day only beyond what he can afford, for cigars, tobacco, and alcoholic drinks, wastes in a year the sum of nine pounds two shillings and sixpence. This sum would defray the annual charge for a policy on his life for £250, beginning when he is 21 years ...
A SMART BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
A SMART BOY. When Lieut. Governor Paterson was speaker of the Legislature of one of our states some dozen boys presented themselves for the place of messenger, as is usual at the opening of the House. He inquired their names, and into their conditon, in order that he might make the proper selection. He came in the course of his examination to a small boy, about ten years old, a bright looking lad. * Well sir,' said he,' what is your name ?' ' John Hancock, sir,' replied the boy. What, said the speaker,' you are not the one that signed the Declaration of Independence are you?' No, sir/ replied the lad, stretching himself to his utmost pro portions, bat I /would if I had been there.' Y^^an be one of the messengs^*, sap. the speaker. -American Paper.

Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. END OF NIGHT THE FIFTH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
£ra lliglits in a fiar-fioom. BY T. S. ARTHUR. (Continued from page 238J END OF NIGHT THE FIFTH. " UH, (ireen ! is that you?" exclaimed the judge, as Harvey Green came in with a soft cat-like step. He was, evidently, glad of a chance to get rid of his familiar friend and elector. I turned my eyes upon the inan, and read his face closely. It was unchanged. The same cold, sinister O 7 \ eye; the same chiselled mouth, so firm now, and now yielding so elasti eally ; the same smile " from the teeth outward"-the same lines that revealed his heart's deep, dark selfishness. If he had indulged in drink during the five intervening years, it had not corrupted his blood, nor added thereto a single degree of heat. u Have you seen anything of Hammond this evening ?" asked Judge Lyman. " I saw him an hour or two ago," answered Green. " How does he like his new horse?" " He's delighted with him." " What was the price ?" " Three hundred dollars," 44 Indeed!" The judge had already arisen, and | he an...
BATHURST STREET ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
BATHURST STREET ANNIVERSARY. ON Thursday and Friday, the 6th and 7th August, the second anniver sary of this Band of Hope (the oldest in Sydney) came off in a highly satis factory manner. The room was profusely decorated with evergreens, made-flowers, and mottos, and behind the platform stood the new banner, the design of which is appropriate and expressive, some thing like the colonial arms, having an emu and kangaroo on either side, and a landscape in the middle, where a boy is catching the crystal beverage as it falls from the rocks, and at a shoii distance a girl is drinking i some already brought to her. Over all is the rising sun - seeming to (indicate that by instilling temperance principles into the youthful mind, a | glorious day is dawning upon Australia. On Thursday evening, about 140 1 sat down to tea, and perhaps as many more came in afterwards. The Kev. JAMES Voller having opened the meeting, the Secretary j read the following ; BEPORT, " On the 15th June, 1855, the Ba...

itltttums. LINES BY A SCOTCHMAN. (On reading that an Act oj the Australian Legislature against the growth of Thistles received the RoycU A&sent.) What this? Forbid the growth o' thristles, Auld Scotia's cherished symbol-flower! The'hair upon ma head it bristles, At sic an awlu' waste o' power! Tis idle wark, as time will show, To root the bonny plant frae ground; For Nature still gars thristles grow Where canny Scots are to be found. What soil so puir hut it can keep. A thristle green amang its staines ? What land so bare a Scotchman deep Canna pick something aff its banes. As weel keep bees frae honey-pots, Keep cats frae cream, or bairns frae tarts As Thristles and their blither Scots Frae land whaur gaud is found i' quarts. -Punch.
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
OUR MESSAGE. To those who are desirous of knowing what a Band of Hope is, and what it is designed to accomplish, we would refer to the condensed report of the Bathurst-street society given in another column. Would that such "juvenile literary institutions " were thickly spread over the whole colony. From statistics in first article some estimate may be made, from the ruinous losses mentioned, of the enormous profits of the brewers and spirit dealers of Sydney. From the present declining state of the trade it is evidently being powerfully sapped. We do not attribute this to any one cause ; the present languor affecting business generally tells upon it. The article dealt in being a luxury is another reason. But we are strongly inclined to believe that the cultivation of the teetotal element of late in Sydney and elsewhere, has permanently put the drag on the wheel of the car of BACCHUS.
No title [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
Cj!HAT a pleasant study is the human face! Watch it as you take your morning walk, or in a large assembly ! What feeling of sympathy it conjures up in the heart of an observer. One face pourtrays a fixedness of purpose that would remove mountains; another would melt the hardest heart; another make the coppers jingle out of the pockets of the most parsimonious-would break the heart of a miser; whilst others, on the contrary, make the heart dance for joy, and praise the diver of all good for his kindness and love, spreading hilarity and happiness around. But again, there is another face intent on its object, that of money-it is a selfish and sordid one-which says, " Rich I want to be, rich I must be, and rich I will be;" whose continuous cry is more gold, let the sacrifice.be what it will, whether of my own body and soul, or of my fellow beings; and yet another class, who say to themselves "Eat, drink, take thine ease, be merry, for to-morrow we die." No thought or care for the future...
BURWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
BURTVOOD. THE meeting, as advertised, took place i last Tuesday; about 300 sat down to an excellent tea, laid in two large tents erected on the ground intended £or the chapel. The chair was taken after tea by the Rev. L. E. Threlkeld. Mr. Alderton was first called upon to give some account of the origin, history, and object of the cause that had brought them together that evening. He said they were desirous of having a place of worship where those belonging to several sections of the christian church might meet without any compromise of principle. We understood that £100 had been alreadv collected for the purpose, and the land was a gift. The meeting was afterward# addressed by the Reverends J. Volley J. Beazley, W. Cuthbertson, S. C. Kent, Boag, and W. Slatyer. After Mr. Kent's speech, a collection was made which, in promises and money, amounted to £43. The money for sale of tickets for the tea would be mostly profit, as we understand the tables were generally furnished by several ...
