YANKEE ELOQUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858
YANKEE ELOQUENCE. " A pietty woman is one of the 'institu tions ' of the country-an angel in dry goods and glory. She makes sunshine, blue sky, and happiness wherever she goes. Her path is one of delicious roses, perfumes, and beauty. She is a sweet poem, written in rare curls, choice calico, and good principles. Men stand up before her as so many admirations, to melt into cream and then butter. Her words float around the ear like music, birds of Paradise, or the chimes of Sab bath bells. Without her, society would lack its truest attraction, the church itg firmest reliance, and young men the very best of comforts and company. Her in fluence and generosity restrain the vicious, strengthen the weak, raise the lowly, flannel-shirt the heathen, and strengthen the faint-hearted. Wherever you find the virtuous woman you also find pleasant fire-side bouquets, clean clothes, order, good living, gentle hearts, music, light, and model ' institutions' generally. She is the flower of humanity,...
WHAT A SAILOR THOUGHT OF MISSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858
WHAT A SAILOR THOUGHT MISSIONS. The Rev. Mr. McLeotl asked the cap tain of a vessel trading in the South Seas the following- question : " Do you think that Missions have done much good in the South Seas ? " He looked at me and said " I do not know what you think about Missions, but I will tell you a fact. Last year I was wrecked on one of these islands, and I knew that eight years before an American whaler had been shipwrecked on the same island, and the crew had been murdered, and you may judge my feelings, when we anticipated that we should either be dashed to pieces on the roc ks during the night, or if we survived to the morning, subjected to a dreadful death. As soon as the day broke, I saw anumberof canoes,mantled,pulling away between the island and the ship. We prepared for the worst consequences. Judge of our amazement when the natives came on board in European dress, and spoke to us in English. In that very island I heard the gospel on the following Sabbath-day, sat down At...

The Children's Portfolio. A NOBLE BOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858
A NOBLE BOY. THE following touching incident in street-life in Paris, demands the ad miration of all our young readers : About nine o'clock in the morning, a little boy of twelve, whose jacket of white cloth and clean apron distinctly indicated that he followed the pro fession of pastry-cook, was returning from market with an open basket on his head containing butter and eggs. When he had reached the vicinity of the church of St. Eustache, the little fellow, who could only with difficulty make his way through the crowd, was violently jostled by a stranger who was passing, so that his basket tipped and fell to the ground with its contents. The poor lad, when he saw hie eggs all broken, and his butter tumbled in the gutter, began to cry bitterly, and wring his hands. A person who happened to be in the crowd that gathered round the little fellow, drew a tenuous piece from his pocket, and giving it to the boy, asked the rest who stood grouped around him to do the same, to make up the lo...
CHAPTER IV. THE FOUR TAILORESSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858
CHAPTER IV. THE FOUR TAILORESSES. .LONG before the brass-plate of " Tad caster, Jeweller," had flourished on the door-indeed, through the occupancy of several previous tenants-the Misses Pool, the tailoresses, and their bed-ridden mother, had rented the same garret chambers. Of this fact the owner of the house made a point when negociating the lease with an incoming tenant by placing it on the list of advantages, just as he did good rooms, register-stoves, or smokeless chimneys. But beyond this fact of permanency little was known of them. They kept rigid counsel of their own affairs i made acquaintanceship neither in their house nor neighbourhood; and, with the habit of those who know the value of time, were brief even in necessary words. Still they were only specimens of a class to be found in all stations of London life, namely, earnest, rigid, conscientious workers : people who work nobly for independence, and asking favour of no one, turn neither to the right nor left in pursuan...
The Holy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858
%\t Ipaltt joints. BY 8ILVEKPEN. (Continued from page 253.) WITH that selfish indifference which so eminently characterizes a low moral con dition wherever found, no one moved to give Joe or Nelly a seat, till Nix, observ ing this from his eyry behind the parti tion, cried oat, "Room theere for them folks-room theere." A share of a bench was therefore resigned to them, with grumbling expressions of ill-will by two or three loungers. Nix had informed the new comers that Bingly would be in by-and-bye, as he was *' a regular lodgerso Nelly, gathering her children round her, sat down by her husband's side; whereupon the women lolling about the fire-place began ques tioning her with idle curiosity on every possible subject. Used as she had been to the coarseness and to the low moral condition of the agricultural class amidst which she had been bred, some decencies had been found within it, some glimpses of a better lite had cast its light within, but here was nothing but darkness and deg...
F. s. d. BY THE AUTHORESS OF "OLD CALEB." SKETCH THE THIRD.—THE BROKEN HEART. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858
? $? it BY THE AUTHORESS OF " OLD CALEB." SKETCH THE THIRD.-THE BROKEN HEART. " Oh, thou wert mild and beautiful, A .sunbeam in Life's showers; Thou wert too mild and beautiful For this frail world of ours t" ABOUT the year 18)6 there arrived in Sydney a young English clergyman, who was destined to be the pastor of a church on the banks of the Hunter. His predecessor, a most devoted man, had died, and the Rev. Horace Mon tague came highly recommended as a successor to him. It was thought that, being young, he would be better able to fulfil the arduous duties of a widely-scattered parish, than one more advanced in life. Lonely and desolate indeed would have been the existence of the young clergyman, in that isolated position, had he not possessed a highly cultivated mind, which enabled him to find in choice literature a never-failing source of enjoyment. Some of the friends, of whose hospitality he partook during his visit to Sydney, regretted that he was unmarried, while others said...
Tour of a Teetotaller to Melbourne. CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 14 August 1858
%mx of a &eeMtller to ||TfIl)oaritt. Continued from page 247. CHAPTER II. MONDAY morning was piercingly cold, a strong north-west wind made my windows rattle to quick time and my teeth rattle an involuntary accom paniment, while I was shiveringly conscious of strong soot-flavoured draughts, rather than balmy zephyrs, from my fire-place, as with more than ordinary haste, I shot into my double milled kerseymere and commenced my toilet, the meanwhile congratulating my nose that it had not to be jeopardised by the operation of shaving, and ejaculating naughty things about the sitz in my own dressing-room. I have a great vene ration for, and am a debtor to Profes sor Pressnitz and his principles, and in the summer season he would not find a stauncher disciple than myself, then I will drink pure cold water like a beast, flounder in it like a fish, sail over its white-crested waves like an aquatic bird, or be rolled up, if need be, in wet sheets like a parboiled mumray, but in the ...
The Children's Portfolio. THE BEST RECOMMENDATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
THE BEST RECOMMENDATION, j A youth seeking employment came to this city, and on inquiring at a certain counting-room if they wanted a clerk, was told that they did not. On men tioning the recommendations he had, one of which was from a highly respected citizen, the merchant de sired to see them. In turning over his carpet-bag to find his letters, a book rolled out on the floor. "What book is that?" said the merchant. "It is the Bible, sir," was the reply. *' And what are you going to do with that book in this city ?" The lad looked seriously into the j merchant's face and replied " I promised my mother I would i read it every day, and I shall do it," and he then burst into tears. The merchant immediately engaged I his services, and in due time he became a partner in the firm-one of^ the most respectable in the city.

THE DUMB BOY'S EXAMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
_ I THE DUMB BOY'S EXAMINATION. A clergyman once paid a visit to a deaf and dumb asylum in London, for the express purpose of examining the children in the knowledge they I possessed of Divine truth. A little boy, on this occasion, was asked, in writing, " who made the world V He took up the chalk, and wrote underneath the question, " In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth" The clergyman then in quired in a similar manner, " Why did Jesus Christ come into the world ?" A smile of delight and gratitude rested on the countenance of the little fellow as he wrote " This is a faithful say ing, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world io save sinners." A third question was then proposed, eminently adapted to call his most powerful feeling into exercise ; " Why were you born deaf and dumb, while I can hear and speak ?" " Never," said an eye witness, shall I forget the look of holy resignation and chastened sorrow which sat on his countenance, as he...
