Gardening. CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
CARROTS. I À good depth of soil is necessary for »carrots, or they will be forked. Ground from which cabbage has been cleared, well trenched, and left for the summer, .will answer best. Top dressing may be carefully applied when the young plants are well up. If the ground has not been trenched, it should be ridged up. Carrot seed will keep for three or four years, and it should be properly mixed with fine sand or ashes before sowing, in order to separate it, and the sowing should be done on a fine day. They should be sown in rows eighteen inches apait, and the plants thinned out to a distance of six inches from one to another, and hoed up every two or three weeks. As soon as » the stems and leaves wither they become ripe, and should be forked up. They ?should be left on the ground a day or two to dry, and then be trimmed and stored away in layers with straw between them. They will thus be dry, and yet the air will have access to them. Carrots increase the milk when given to milch co...
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 — 28 August 1858
f. s. h BY THE AUTHORESS OF " OLD CALEB." SKETCH THE THIRD.-THE BROKEN HEART. Continued from page 260. BRK many weeks had elapsed, the young clergyman was become a frequent visitor at Mrs. Grrey's cottage. He had much to learn about the people and neighbourhood, and that lady was able to impart to him valu able information and advice. He .found it most agreeable, when wearied with the toils of the day, to call in there and spend the summer's evening; to hear in that quiet little spot the sweet tones of Marian's harp, and read with her books, which they oould both .appreciate. Marian was indeed, one of those bright intelligent spirits, which so rarely flit across our path, as we wander through the wilderness. High minded, truthful, and guileless, she ¿rusted implicitly in all around her, " hoped all things, believed all things," and thought no evil. Her's was not the trusting of a weak intellect, but of a noble heart, above the meanness .of suspicion, and too deeply imbued with chris...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
CHAT a community like ours, possessing so little genuine piety and so much inveterate selfishness, should be characterised as Christian, appears somewhat contradictory. It affords us partial relief, however, to be able to show that a spirit does exist amongst us Avhich is totally unknown in places beyond the influence of the Gospel, as strikingly manifested in the organisations that abound on every hand for promoting the public weal. In forming an estimate of the relative value of these agencies, it should be borne in mind that man's happiness and advancement can only be promoted as his spiritual nature is brought under the control of Gospel principles. Experience has fully shown that the missionary, with the Bible in his hand, j, is the only successful civiliser of the savage, and, for the same reason,'ail rightly directed efforts among ourselves will commence with the heart-set that right, and the rest will follow. This all-important truth is too often disregarded. For instance : ...

RE-ENACTMENT OF THE MAINE LAW IN MAINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
KE-ENACTMENT OP THE MAINE LAW IN MAINE. It affords us peculiar satisfaction to announce that prohibition i? once more triumphant in the State of Maine. The new Maine Liquor Law has passed through both Chambers (the Senate and the House of Representatives), and now only awaits the final ratification by the vote of the people. The good news that Maine is again emancipating herself from the curse of the Liquor Traffic, and about to resume her proud position at the head of the great prohibition move ment, will be received with enthusiasm by the friends of the cause the world over. As evidence that so far from public opinion having receded in Maine on this question, it may be stated that the origi nal law of 1853 was passed by 86 votes against 40, in the House of Representa tives, and by 18 against 10 in the Senate; whilst the law just passed, received 103 votes in the Lower House, and was op posed by only 26 ; and in the Senate only one voice was raised to resist its adoption 1

Solutions. "A WOMAN'S THOUGHTS ABOUT WOMEN." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
Solutions. "A WOMAN'S THOUGHTS ABOUT WOMEN." A clever book has been puüiisnea unaer the above title, but we do not see what necessity there was to publish such a book at all. A gentleman only has to attend a tea-table, and he is sure, before the first cup of Bohea has gone round, to hear what a " Woman's Thoughts,'* are " about Women." Generally speaking, the " thoughts " expressed are not of the most friendly nature ; for woman, as judged by her own sex, is by no means the beautiful divine creature that poets delight in imagining her. However, the book we have honoured by mentioning is perfectly free from scandal and ill nature, and is so sensible in most of its observations, and at the same time so gentle in its reproofs, that really a man might have written it. There isn't a squeeze of satire in it, and so old maids, who rush to its pages in the hopes of finding something spiteful, will be griev ously disappointed. The work ought to be on every lady's teatray. -Punch.
The Holy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
BY SILVERPEN. ( Continued from page 269J . ON a sunny Monday morning, soon after this, a neatly clad woman, with a quick, energetic step, made her way to the Marylebone savings' bank. Here, where the lengthened regularity of her weekly visits caused her to be well known to each official, she deposited her ordinary sum, and then retraced a portion of her eteps with accustomed diligence. By and-bye, diverging from her way to make a purchase at a shop she frequented, she was attracted by the rich scent and bloom of a basketful of flowers which a woman seated on a step offered for sale ; she stopped, inquired the price, and then selected some bunches of the most fragrant. " I see you know which are the sweetest, ma'am," said the flower-seller, for she liked the kindly look of the purchaser. " Nature must teach me, then," she said quietly, " for I know little of gardens or the country. But those I love do, and these are for a poor old bedridden mother -just ninety-who, in her young marri...
"MY MASTER IS OLD, AND WANTS HIS LUNCH." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
" MY MASTER IS OLD, AND WANTS HIS LUNCH." During the approaches of the army to one of the assaults upon Sebastopol, a civilian was seen walking across the front space between the enemy and the besiegers, and was ordered to retreat. He appeared to disregard the order, and con tinued his course. An aid-de-camp rode up to him, and angrily ordered him back, blaming him for the rash exposure of himself to danger. The man replied, " I am Lord Raglan's servant. My master is old, and wants his lunch, let me take it over to him."
Tour of a Teetotaller to Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
©our of a teetotaller to licitante. Concluded from page 263. To give my pen full scope to describe j all that I saw during my tour to provoke a grumble or to arouse my admiration, my limited space forbids me, and with a feeble and inadequate description of the glorious teetotal display on the 1st of July, I will close ; my subject. The many letters with which I wai favoured by friends in Sydney, pro cured me introductions to some of the leading members of the Victoria Temperance League ; and foremosl amongst them is Richard Heales, Esq.. member of Parliament for Melbourne, This distinguished gentleman is Presi dent of the League, and a more zealous and indefatigable advocate oi the total abstinence cause does not exist. I had the honour of waiting upon him at his counting house, (he is a partner in an extensive mercantile firm in Melbourne.) I felt sorry to intrude upon his time while engaged in his business affairs, but a glance at his bland, expressive countenance, which is consta...
The Old Soldier and the Bushranger. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 28 August 1858
UP the country was a store, which had been frequently robbed by bushrangers. At length the owner hired an old ser geant to take charge of it, who declared, with man} ferocious asseverations, that no bushrangers should rob it whilst he was in possession. That he might be enabled to keep his word, he provided himself with a fearful array of fire arms, which he arranged in convenient positions about the store ; so that, in whatever part of it he might chance to be when the enemy appeared, he might be able to lay his hand on a weapon, and be thus always ready for action. But he placed his chief depen dence on a large blnnderbuss, which he loaded so heavily, that, like a gun charged with grape and canister, it was calculated to scatter destruction amongst a whole anny of assailants. Day after day had elapsed, and no enemy appeared. The sergeant began to hug himself on the terror his name and mighty preparations had inspired, and to venture on a few modest wishes tfat they would come, in ...

Poetry. THE WONNERFU' WEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
THE WONNERFU' WEAN. Our wean *8 the most wonnerfu' wean ere I saw It wad tak me a lang summer day to tell a' His prank frae the mornin' till night Shuts his ee, When he sleeps like a peerie 'tween faither an' me. For in his quiet turns siccan questions fye'll spier, How the mune can stick up in the sky that's sae clear ? What gars the wun blaw, and where frae comes the rain ? He's a perfect divert-he's a wonnerfu' wean! Or wha was the first bodie's faither ? an' wha Made the vera first snaw show'r that ever did fa' ? And wha made the first bird that sang on a tree ? An' the water that sooms the ships on the sea ? But after I've tellt him as weel as I ken, Again he begins wi' his wha? an' his when ? An' he looks aye so watchfu' the while I explain He's as auld as the hill#-he's an auld farrant wean.
