GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
GOTJLBURN. ON Wednesday evening, August 5th, a meeting of the Goulburn Band of Hope was held in the Baptist chapel. The evening being fine, the attendance was large. Mr. Jeremiah Williams delivered a lecture on "Moderation ./' the object being first to show that the happy franke of mind which is an essential part of moderation, is entirely destroyed and the judgment obscured by the use of these drinks. The moderation of little drop drinkers was therefore a misnomer; and secondly, its fruits were fraught with great waste, and misapplication of the blessings and necessaries of life; a promoting of deception-as the conduct at midnight contrasted with that of midday of many persons considered respectable was humiliating in the extreme. A temperance melody bearing on the subject, as well as an exhibition of wood cuts, tended to interest the audience. The melody, " Paddy Green," was sung at the close of the meeting, which charmed the juveniles, and elicited great applause.
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
PITT STREET. Mr. Traveller gave a lecture to the members of this society. He entitled it, " An Hour with the Poets." It seemed rather above the comprehen sion of some of the children, though many doubtless were interested. Selections from Mackay, Shakspeare, &c., were given. Last Wednesday a Temperance meeting was held. August 19.-Lecture. No meeting next Wednesday, owing to an Alliance meeting taking place that evening.

Poetry. THE DRUNKARD'S RAGGIT WEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
THE DRUNKARD'S R AG-G-IT WEAN. A wee bit raggit laddie gangs wan'ring thro' the street, Wadin' mang the snaw wi' his wee hackit feet Shiv'rin' in the cauld blast, greetin' wi' the pain Wha's the puir wee callan'? He's a drunkard's raggit wean! He stands at ilka door, and he keeks wi' wi^tfu' e'e To *ee the crowd around the fire, a laugh ing ioud wi' glee; But he daurna venture ben', tho' his heart be e'er sac: fain, For he maun j, play wi' ither bairns-the drunkard's raggit wean! Oh! see the wee bit bairnie, his heart is unco fou; The sleet is blawin' cauld, and he's dieepit thro and thro'; He's speer'in' for his mither, and won'er# wh&i flit's gape, But, oh! his mither, she forgets her puir wee raggit wean. He kens nae father's love, an' he kens nae mither's care, To soothe his wee bit sorrows, or kame his tautit hair, To kiss him when he waukens, or smooth his bed at e'en, An', oh! he fears his faither's face-the drunkard's raggit wean! Oh, pity the wee laddie, sae guilele...
NIGHT THE SIXTH. MORE CONSEQUENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
NIGHT THE SIXTH. MORE CONSEQUENCES. THE landlord did not make his appear ance on the next morning until nearly ten o'clock ; and then he looked like a man who had been on a debauch. It was eleven before Harvey Green came down. Nothing about him indicated the smallest deviation from the most orderly habit. Clean shaved, with fresh linen, and face every line of which was smoothed into calmness, he looked as if he had slept soundly on a quiet conscience, and now hailed the new day with a tranquil spirit. The first act of Slade was to go be hind the bar and take a stiff glass of brandy and water; the first act of Green, to order beefsteak and coffee for his breakfast. I noticed the meeting between the two men, on the appearance of Green. There was a slight reserve on the part of Green, and an uneasy embarrassment on the part of Slade. Not even the ghost of a smile was visible in either counte nance. They spoke a few words together, and then separated as if from a sphere of mutual repuls...
Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 15 August 1857
NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. AT the School of Arts the Rev. George Mackie delivered a lecture, entitled " The Two Slaveries: their Cause and Cure," as announced, on Thursday, August 6. The attendance was good, and the lecture was in every way calculated to make a powerful impression. On Friday, August 7, a meeting was held in the National School-room, Paddington, in connection with the society, at which there was a large attendance, evincing the greatest possible interest in the subject of Temperance. At the Primitive Methodist Chapel, Kent-street, an Alliance meeting was also held on Monday, August 10, at which the Rev. tf. Sharpe presided. An exhibition of Dissolving Views was to have been given last Thursday. Next Wednesday and Thursday, the 19th and 20th of August, two musical entertainments will be given.

DRINK, MURDER, AND THE GALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
DBINK, MURDER, AND THE GALLOWS. WE copy the following paragraph from the Empire, of August 11: MOBETON BAT. EXECUTION OF TEAGLE FOE MURDER ING HIS WIFE. - The gallows, on Tuesday morning last, swallowed up another victim to the cause of intempe rance ; unregretted, almost unpitied, has another soul been summoned to meet an offended God, in the prime of manhood, and in the midst of days. The unhappy man was, no doubt, a kind husband and an affectionate parent, until drink--the curse of these fair lands-took possession of his intel lects, and then he became brutal, and, as the sequel showed, a murderer. Can we hope that Teagle's untimely death will act as a warning to those who are hurrying onwards to a similar end? We fear not; the workhouse, the gaol, and the gallows cannot stop their downward course. Our hope lies in the exertions of our rulers and philanthropists to educate and elevate the minds of the people ; the young of Australia must be the soil wherein to sow the seed of tem...
A Mental Barometer. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
% lltratal litnmuttr. The title of tlie article "Our Moral Barometer," no doubt awakened in the mindsof mostof itsreaders " curiosity." What a queer thing; a moral barom eter ! from the title one would expect a good article, nor were we disappointed; but, dear readers, I want to show you how you may have aMerital Barometer. The human mind is at all times fond of strange and startling tales. When man's bodily frame has become weary by toil, and he is at a loss how to spend his evenings, how greedily does he seize on the lazy and comfortable means of amusement of novel reading. It matters not of what sort the tale may be,providedit be but interesting and exciting; if it makes him forget fatigue for the hour, it is sufficient. But some may say, what about the Mental Barometer ? listen and we will tell you. Novel reading is a most pernicious habit, and by the novel reader's own Mental Barometer we can prove it. Let any one ask a novel reader whether he likes hard and dry reading ? I am ...
TEETOTALISM IN THE NEW HEBRIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
TEETOTALISM IN THE NEW HEBRIDES. The following is an extract from a letter received by a gentleman in Sydney a short time back, from Mr. John Inglis, missionary at Aneiteum, New Hebrides. " A few weeks ago, I opened a new church, at my principal outstation, capable of holding upwards of 400 Worshippers. In and around the building there were 1000 natives present; and all conducted themselves with the ut most propriety. On the Saturday previous, there was a great display of hospitality, there was abundance of provisions; but no drinking and no quarrelling, all was conducted on teetotal principles. In the days of heathenism on this island, all the chiefs, and as many others as could obtain it, drank Kava-a native intoxicating drink, and all the male population^ at least, smoked tobacco. We have suc ceeded so far, that the most, if not the whole of the christian chiefs, have given up the use of kava, and a great number of the most enlightened of the Christian natives have broken their p...
Poetry. THE "DUNBAR." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
THE "DUNBAR." The night was dark, the rain fell fast, The east wind wildly blew, % The .' Dunbar " neared Australia's shore Manned by a gallant crew. The shore they saw but d^mly; 1 he light-house was in view. One instant more, the ship has struck! There on the dashing wSve A hundred forms of young and old The noble and the brave, Lie in that water wild and dark With no hand near to save. Had those in Sydney heard that cry, Quick they'd have lent their aid; Though tearful, fearful was that night, Hone would have been afraid. .' Away, let's see what we can ao,' Some hundreds would have said.
"I'LL SMOKE NO MORE!" [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
" I'LL SMOKE NO MORE!" More than twenty long years have roll'd by, Since the day (fresh in memory still) When I first took a smoke on the sly Oh dear! I felt shockingly ill. I was then a tall youth of fifteen, And had just donn'd my first long tail'd coat; I thought-could I only be seen With a pipe, 'twould my manhood denote. The first try made me terribly sick, But a youth (e'er too lazy to work) Cheer'd -me thus, " Try again-be a brick ! You'll soon learn to smoke like a Turk. " Only see what a cloud I can blow, And I never feel queamish nor sick ; I can smoke six cigars at a go: And I was not long learning the trick.'* Well, I thought, I have never been foil'd In whate'er I've determined to db, Resolution will conquer the world, So I soon learn'd to blow a cloud too. I've been blowing from that time till now, And scarcely a day have I miss'd ; If I could all these clouds just now show, Not a soul in this town could exist. 1 have puff'd from my favour'd meer schaum, Cut, negrohead...

The Blind Musician. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
% $5Irab Pusitran. MANY years ago, a poor blind boy might be seen sitting under a tree, in 0 O ' Yorkshire, playing various sweet tunes on the flute. 1 am glad to say that his little sister was very affectionate to him ; at all times ready to give up her play, that she might sit and read to her sightless brother. Many a time whilst under the shade .f the tree, the blind boy had heard the sweet warblings of the beautiful birds, and this created in his mind a }©ve for music. A kind-hearted boy from- the neighbouring school,"*instead of spending his money in &lt;.>>'; ob., pur chased a small ikt- " * ^oT redit to the blind boy. Oh how this instru ment gladdened the little fellow. He soon learned to play very sweetly; bo I much so, that the schoolboys would often stop to listen to him, and cheer him with kind words and heartfelt thanks. As the boy grew older, his proficiency in music was so great, that on a vacancy occurring in the office of or ganist for one of the large ...
SIR WILLIAM A'BECKETT ON THE MAINE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
SIR WILLIAM A'BECKETT ON THE MAINE LAW. A LECTURE was delivered in the School of Arts, Pitt-street, on Monday evening, 24th August, by Sir William a'Beckett, late Chief Justice of Victoria, on the necessity of suppressing by law the sale of intoxicating drinks, About 250 were present, amongst whom we noticed Sir Alfred Stephen, and many others standing high in the estimation of their fellow citizens. Sir William gave the history and working of the Maine Law, showing that it was perfectly constitutional, and no infringement on the liberty of the subject. He showed that where the law had been repealed it had been followed by the most disastrous conse quences. The various objections to the measure were ably combated. The drunkenness of countries where only light wines were used was clearly shown, and the lecturer's opinion was, the vine in Australia should be culti vated for the table only. The present effective society in England, entitled " The United Kingdom Alliance for the suppres...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
OUR MESS A GE. ANOTHER fortnight has elapsed, and again our little journal threads its way over the length and breadth of the land: saluting the members of twelve hundred households. Should we ask each of you, i( How do you do ?" readers, what reply would you give? "Very well, thank you," would probably slip off your tongue without a thought; and yet the next instant you would remember that you had a headache or a heartache-'that the unrelent ing wet had destroyed your property or your trade, or had so damped your spirits, that every cheerful look you gave had to be " got up for the occasion or perhaps the dark shadow of the ill-fated "Dunbar" falls/across your threshold, throwing a gloom of deepest shade on all within. The " Very well, thank you," will want a heavy discount off in almost every instance, to reduee it to a true answer, expressing the sentiments of your minds. Having said, "How do you do?" we will complete Our Message, and leave you to your reflections. We have been e...

WpjjHAT about the Temperance Hall? This is a very natural question for those to put who have taken part in the recent remarkable demonstrations got up by the promoters of that object, or who have given their contributions towards it. The subject is one of general interest as well' as general benefit. Though we are not authorised to make any official state ment, we believe that the sum of. about .£770 has been promised towards the erection of the building, and that about ,£360 has been already paid in to,the Treasurers. Out of this sum, £100 has been paid as a deposit on the pur chase money (£3000) of the land, which is 135 feet deep, with a frontage of 63 feet to Pitt-street, immediately opposite the Congregational Church perhaps the most eligible site in Sydney for the purpose. On the payment of £400 more, the land will be conveyed to the Trustees, and the remainder of the purchase money will remain on mortgage, until means are forthcoming to liquidate the debt. The recent bad weat...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
itnrg (ikrker. (Continued from page 261.^ WITH many other similar arguments and quaintly-expressed aphorisms would he reply to his wife's emphatic but mild reminders to him " To keep holy the Sabbath Day ." Mr. Tucker was one of her father's favourite guests, and, as he often expressed himself, was a man after his own mind. He (Mr. T.) was then a young man of rather showy exterior and of very lively and pleasing man ners, and was reported to be an ?excellent man of business. He some times occupied a part of her father's pew in the church on the Sabbath, and called himself a churchman-the oceupancy of the pew was the only title he could show for that distinction, and as it was never questioned, he held it to be valid enough. He had many opportunities of jeeing Eliza, so he wooed and won her; and although lier mother with many tears remonstrated against her union with a man of such very questionable religious principles, and her own conscience sorely troubled her upon the subject, sti...
