AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE LAUGHING JACKASS. (GIGANTIC KINGFISHER, DACELO GIGANTEA.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE LAUGHING JACKASS. " (GIGANTIC KINGFISHER, DACELO GIGANTEA.) THB plumage of this remarkable bird is full and soft, and the feathers of the head are in form of a erest. The bill is large, long, powerful, and swollen at the sides ; the edge of the upper mandible is bowed in near the point, which is acute, And bends over the lower mandible. The wings are rather long, when folded reaching half way down the tail, which is long, broad, and rounded. The eyes have a forward situation, being plaeed «lose to the base of the beak, imparting a sharp, canning, and somewhat fierce expression to the aspect. The toes are armed with sharp claws ; the disposition «f the bird is daring and rapacious. Among the wooded mountain districts in mest parts of Australia, this species is very -common, and may be observed sitting on the watch for its prey, which consists of insects, small quadrupeds, and reptiles. Its cry is very peculiar, wild, and dissonant. The traveller 1U | t...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. THE MORAL VERDICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 July 1859

t¡\t Rastralle ¡¡omt ëamynitsu, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. - A -T THE MORAL VERDICT. LET US look to the wide-spreading evil over the aborigines of this land, and -what must be the moral verdict-whatever be their native degradation, it was nothing to what intoxicating drinks have made it. Now, if we pitied them while they roamed the woods in freedom, but in ignorance, what must be our feeling toward them now, that we have by one sole agency made them worse than beasts-degraded them into the very depths of the most abject debasement-made them believe from our example that drunkenness-a new «vice to them-must be a Christian virtue. The Hindoo casts this reflection in the face ; and the North American Indian avows that fire-water has been the desolation of his race ; nay, benevolence in its missionary career has no greater /Cause to contend with than Intemperance. The idols of the heathen have . been prostrated, and the people of the lovely islands in the Pacific regenerated, «o that com...

CHAPTER XXII. THE YORKS AND THEIR FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

CHAPTER XXII. THE YORKS AND THEIR FRIENDS. There was a good deal that was mys terious in the matter of Mr. York's authorship. The first poem he had sent to the Austins'Journal was excessively good. Abstractedly, it might be con sidered a profound satire on York's own way of life, for it was entitled ' Labour is Worship,' and it had likewise written under it the monkish saying ' Laborare est Orarc,' to labour is to pray; and this class of praying Mr. York as certainly as much hated as he did all others. If this man wrote the poem, of which there was ultimately much doubt, he could at least describe the blessings of labour with a pen of rare felicity. Other poems followed. The majority were of average merit, some few very good, though none reached the mysterious excellence of the first. With a footing thus obtained in Austins' Journal, Mr. York began to be regarded as an author by profession. At such times he condescended to leave off smoking and to work : he elaborated divers tales, ...

I CANNOT SING TO NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

I CANNOT SING TO NIGHT. I cannot, cannot sing to-night, Nay, ask me not to sing, My heart's too full of memories Which wildly round me cling And thoughts will press of other hours Once happy hours to me, Of one who made life beautiful, I cannot sing to thee. I eannot, cannot strike one chord, No ! no ! I may not sing: What can dispel the spirits cloud, When hope has taken wing. Let me forget, the circean draught, I've quaffed of brief delight And then I will your bidding do, But oh, no song to-night. The above was composed by the late lamented L. H. Lavenu; the melody is very sweet and pathetic.

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. 10. S., Goulburn.-In answer to your question -we beg to say, that we have regretted that the article should have appeared at all. It was con sidered that the gentleman who contributed it was thoroughly acquainted with the subject, and it found its way into the hands of the printers without due examination. It is our candid opinion, that several of the drinks can not be used consistently with total abstinence ; the fermented ones should be expunged, reserv ing only those that are of the class of lemonade, ginger beer, sherbets, and those of that nature, and among these will be found some most ex cellent receipts.-ED.

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL, THE WAR TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

®{re Australian lotmf Campaniiw, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL, THE WAR TRUMPET. WAR, a little word of three letters, is perhaps one of the most portentous on record. It is the woe sound of nations ; it startles on the ear of the mul titude, and like the thunder echoes amidst the mountain valleys, reverberates from heart to heart, from country to country. War brings before our imagina tion towns sacked and pillaged, the marshalling of armies, the tears of house holds, the pomp and grandeur of military array marching onwards amidst the last farewells of wives and mothers; the camp, with its wild enthusiasm and its monster train of artillery and engines of destruction, all conveying death; the mighty ocean covered with fleets of floating castles, armed for the ruin of contending powers. And then the battle-field, gory with slaughter, the sham bles of an accursed ambition, where stranger meets stranger but to destroy; the cheer, the groan, the tramp of men, the war-horse snorting to the cha...

QUACKERY AND LEGITIMATE MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

QUACKEKY AND LEGITIMATE MEDICINE. BY DR. BELL, CAMPBELLTOWN. A wise physician skilled our ills to heal Is more than armies to the public weal. A GREAT many imagine there is noth ing more easy than to treat diseases, but the fact is the reverse, and there is no profession upon which a man will he thrown more upon his own resources, and self-reliance, than that of practical medicine, often some faint glimmerings of nature being his only guide or assist ance. He who has ever witnessed the pro tean forms of maladies, the innumerable complications which surround or connect them, the multifarious circumstances which obscure and modify them, must admit the truth and justness of my re marks. Many diseases however, no matter how their causes have been treated or their symptoms classified and understood, are still beyond the remedial aid any human being can bestow, and it is not an unfrequent spectacle to see beauty fading, youth languishing, and art exhausted, without the slightest ray of ho...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. FIRST EMPEROR OF ROME. [H. C. 46 TO B. C. 42.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CM8AR. FIRST EMPEBOB OF ROME. [b. C. 40 TO B. <;. 42.] C-ffiSAB "was now no longer afraid of tSylla, whose power was nearly at an end, so he returned to Rome, and instead of passing his time in idleness, as many foolish young men would have done, got a tutor to teach him how to make speeches, and to compose good letters and poetry. There was another person ?who was learning these things at the same time as Csesar, whose name was Cicero. Both were excellent scholars, but Cicero turned out afterwards to be the better writer and speaker. Caesar, however, was the braver soldier of the two, and obtained more power, if not fame. When these two young men were at their studies together, Cipero watched all that Cffisar said or did, that he might find out what sort of person he was; but though very clever at understanding people in general, Cicero did not well know what to think of his new companion. He said that it was very plain Caesar .w...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HOME COMPANION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OP THE HOKE COMPANION. Sir,-I think it is a pity that your widely cir culated journal should not give the best possible information. I therefore beg to draw your atten tion to the first receipt in the last number of the HOMK COMPANION-food for an infant-wherein it is recommended that artificial food should be given to a new-born infant every two or three hours, 'till the mother's breast affords natural nourishment.' Now, Mr. Editor, surely the God who has sufficiently provided for the young of the brute creation, has not left the infants of the human race without needed nourishment. If, however, the light of nature fails to give guidance, allow me to tell any young mothers among your readers, not only from my own experience, but an eminent medical authority, that the* new-born infant requires no nourishment for many hours after birth, and by the time it is needed, the mother's breast affords it in sufficient quantity, and of the proper kind; and any art...

TEMPERANCE ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

TEMPERANCE ITEMS. A PUBLIC MEETING of noblemen and gentlemen was held in London, in the large room at Willis's, for the purpose of forming an association to erect public drinking fountains throughout the metro polis upon the plans already adopted in Aberdeen, Liverpool, Oldham, and other provincial towns.

THE LATE MR. LAVENU. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

THE LATE MR. LAVENU. IT is our most painful duty to have to record the death of this highly talented musician, which took place on the 1st of August, after a few days illness. Mr. Lavenu, while arranging and conducting the University Musical Festival, be came known to a large portion of the Sydney public, and by general urbantiy, and incessant attention, won their esteem. Mr. Lavenu was a pupil of the Royal Academy of music, where he obtained deplomas of merit-while still a youth he composed the opera of LOHETTA, which bears the highest marks of ability; his ballad composi tions were very popular, amongst them were, 'Molly Astliore,' 'The Banks ofQuadalquiver,' 'I cannot sing to night,' &c. Mr. Lavenu gained a world wide reputation while travelling as musical conductor with Miss Hayes. He was an excellent pianist and violoncellist, and his love for music was enthusiastic. In his last moments his thoughts wandered incessantly to music, each article shewn him in his delirium h...

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERFEN. (Continued from page 308.) Mb. VERDUN was far from calm him self, and the sight of him and his tender manner made Liddy's tears hurst out afresh. She had been thinking a great deal of him since his last visit in the school, and now she knew she liked him very much; indeed, better than even Griddy, or dear Margaret, or her beloved father. These fresh tears, these convulsed sobs, this almost implied dependance on his protection, revealed to him as much as words could do, and all his stern resolves to educate and protect Liddy before he made any revelation of his love, were swept instantly away, He drew her towards him, kissed away her tears, hushed her sobs upon his manly breast; this with as pure an intent as heretofore, for though his love for the girl was as idolatrous as human love could be, the angels themselves would have found it shadowless from sin. 4 It is me, Liddy,' he said, when he had dried-more than dried her tears. Though I did not wish you...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE DUGONG. (HALICORE DUGONG, CUVIER.) HALICORE AUSTRALIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY* G. B. Mason. THE DUGONG. (HALICORE DUGONG, CUVIER.) HALICORE AUSTRALIS. THIS species of the ' Acquatic Pachy der mata' tribe, is a native of the Australian coasts. Its favorite haunts are the mouths of rivers and straits, between islands, where the depth of the water is but trifling (three or four fathoms) and where at the bottom grows a luxuriant pasturage of submarine vegetables. The position of the mouth, the muscular powers and mobility of the lips, gar nished with wiry bristles, and the short tasks of the upper jaw, enable the ani mals to seize and drag up their food. The Dugong is in high esteem as an article of food in the Indian ocean, where it is hunted assiduously by the Malays, who attack the animal with harpoons: its flesh is tender, and not unlike beef. The mutual affection of the male and female is very great, and the latter is de voted to her offspring. If a Dugong be killed, the survivor of the pair, careless of danger, follows after the b...

ROUGH JOTTINGS. A BUSINESS-LIKE MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859

ROUGH JOTTINGS. BY CHARLES MIBAN. A BUSINESS-LIKE MYSTERY IN this peculiar age of rapidity, (when every one is deeply impressed with the danger of stooping in fear he should get tripped up by his fellow, who is close upon his heels,) it appears necessary to he apparently doing something, regard less of the fact if you have something to do or not. The luxury of * taking your time' can only strictly belong to either a very rich man, who has a very contemp tible idea of business and business-like people, or to him who is ambitious of be coming notoriously known as 4 the idle vagabond.' Should you have no particular call upon your time, and disdain remaining in your own domicile, you must rush through the streets with a kind of ' I'm in a hurry* look in your face, and should you contrive to check the natural pro gression of a few pedestrians on your route, so much the better; they may be offended by the violence of the concus sion, but on reflection they will certainly say . by Jove, th...
