An old Man's Advice to his Daughter. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
Ail old Man's Advice to his Daughter. Well now, Mary, I find I am getting older every day and may not always be with you; do let me now give you a bit of advice you may one day need. Never receive the addresses of any young man who seeks your hand till you have contrived by hook or by crook, to as certain what time he goes to bed at night. If he retires to his room with the same steady step as he left it in the morning. If when, he said " good night" to you for the last time last evening he went straight home* Whether the last door he O r closed ere he entered his house was that of tavern, or billiard room ; or that of a reading-room or literary institution. If either of the latter two. put it down as " so far so good." When he vows he is ready to become your * . servant" and '* slave," ask him if he has first become the servant and slave of the Lord Jesus Christ. Take notice how and what he talks to you. If his manner be respectfully affectionate, 'tis well; if his matter be common...
GOODWUN. A TALE OF TRUTH. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
GOODWUN. A TALE OP TRUTH. [CONCLUDED.] GOODWUN pursued his weary way, rag ged, cold, and hungry. He felt himself a lorn thing in a friendless world. But as he went, a robin sat singing on a tree, ''with no one near it," and even that revived his " sinking spirit." He also gazed upon the majestic forms of " the great mountains " around him , and " his soul with wonder glowed-devotion kindling as he gazed yet night was approaching, and he was worn and weary, without a parent, without a shelter, and without a friend. What is to become of the poor orphan boy 1 He had sought employment, but could find none. He was making the last application to a farmer, when he was spurned from the door by a servant maid;1 but he would not leave till he saw the master of the house; he was at last admitted, and stood in presence of the farmer. Struck with the gentle bearing of the youth, His noble countenance and forehead high, The unaffected honesty and truth That shone conspicuous in his earnest eye, H...
Shipwreck of Prince William, of England, the son of Henry I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
Shipwreck of Prince William, of England, the son of Henry I. HISTORY yields but little detail in the shipwreck of Prince William, son of Henry I., King of England. In the year 1120, the Prince had been taken in Nor mandy, by his father, that he might be recognised as the successor to the sove reignty, and receive in that part of the royal dominions, the homage of the barons. He was in the eighteenth year of his age, amiable and accomplished.. The ship hi which the Prince was to sail, had been detained by some accident, after his father had embarked and got out to sea. It appeared they had been revelling during the interval of their detention, and when the vessel was ready they embarked while heated with wine, being in great haste to follow the king, whose ship having a fair wind, was soon out of sight of the Norman shore. The sailors, it is reported, were in the same over-heated state as their Prince and Captain Fitz stephens, the commander, when they set sail. In their heedlessness...

A Visit to the Ruins of Hercula neum, a City destroyed by the Burning Mountain at Naples. j*kl F our readers will lo >k on tlie .qj lxiap they will find the Italian City of Naples is hounded on ^ the north-west by the See of Rome, or Ecclesiast:cal States ; north-east by the Gulf of Venice, and on all other prtsby the Mediterranean Sea which separates Europe from Africa. Situated as it is at the bottom of the Bay, one of the finest in the world, and built of the form of avast amphitheatre, gradually sloping to the sea from lofty hills, it forms a splendid sight to the visitor, but particularly so when viewed from the sea. To all who have any historical know" ledge of the kingdom of Italy, many sad recollections must crowd upon the memory. It was in the latter part of the last cen tury, 1799-that this city was invested by the French, but shortly afterwards taken by the British Fleet, under the^ lamented immortal Nelson. Many traces of the scenes of war by both Nations are still le...
HYDROPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
HYDROPATHY. O madness ! to think use of strong wines, And strongest drink onr chief jsupport of Health, When God, with these forbidden, made^choice to rear His mighty champion, strong above compare, Whose drink was only from the limpid brook. "In the midst of a society, where wine and spirits are considered as of little more value than water, I have lived two years without either; and with no other drink but water, except when I have it conve nient to obtain milk; not an hour's illness; not an headache for an hour; not the smallest ailment; not a restless night; not a drowsy morning Rave I known dining these two -famous yearjs of my | life. The sun never rises before me, I I have always to wait for him to come anjl 1 give me light to write by, while my mind is in full vigour, and while nothing has come to cloud its clearness."-COBBETT. No one can deny the truth of the as sertion that " Water is earth's noblest boon." In all ages water has been resorted to by men of different classes...
Best answer to Natural History. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
Best answer to Natural History. The food that John the Baptist eat, was the same that the poor people of Palestine gene rally lived-upon in times of scarcity; the locusts were a kind of bean that grew in abundance in that country. Some persons think that the locusts he eat were the insects that came in clouds and devoured every thing, and which the poor people salted and dried, and eat when they could not get any thing else, but these only came at uncertain times, and John the Baptist wanted some thing to eat regularly for years. A BIBLE CLASS GIRL A good answer also from Sarah Anil Young.
Good Advice from an Old Lady. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
Good Advice from an Old Lady. Now, John, listen to me, for I am older than you, or I could not be your mother. Never do you marry a young woman, John, before you have contrived to call at the house where she lives, at least four or five times before breakfast. You should know how lale she lies in bed of a morning. ¥ou should take notice whether her complexio n is the same in the morning as ir is in the evening, or whether the morning wash anl the towel have robbed her of the evening blooja. You should take care to surprise her, so that yon may eee her in her mdrning dress, and observe how her hair looks,' when she is not expect ing you. You should hear the morning conversation between her and her mother; If she is ill-natured and snappish to her mother, so she will be to you, depend upon it, But if you find her up and neatly dressed in the morning, with the same countenance, the same smiles, the same neatly combed hair, the same ready and pleasant answers to her mother, which charac...

BAND OF HOPE INTELLIGENCE. PITT-STREET BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 24 May 1856
BAND OF HOPE INTELLIGENCE. PITT-STREET BAND OF HOPE. Mr. G. J. Crouch gave a lecture entitled " The Great Delusion.° on 14th May. The e.vident design of the lecturer was to show, that, what at one time is considered a delusion, at another, is ad mitted as real* and truthful, this was demonstrated by jeference to the op position that many of those truths and principles now familiar to the minds of all, once met with. The application of steam power; the introduction of vaccination; the fact, of the blood cir culating, of the sun-standing still, and others. They were none the less true, because, considered false at the time. So with the principles anu truths of temperance, its votaries and supporters may be looked upon as visionary enthusaists and their hopes and aspi rations, as dreams of the imagination, still in no distant future they shall be hailed as the spirits of progress and the principles they propagate, be inter woven into the fabric of the worlds standard truths. By the aid...
