HINTS FOR HOMES. HUSBAND AND WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859
HINTS FOR HOMES. HUSBAND AND WIFE. Bring hints to each other for the good of both, as actually delivered at our own table: HINTS FOR WIVES. If your husband occasionally looks a little troubled when he comes home, do not say to him, with an alarmed counte nance, ' What ails you, my dear?' Don't bother him : he will tell you of his own accord, if need be. Don't rattle a hail storm of fun about his ears either; be observant and quiet. Don't suppose whenever he is silent and thoughtful that you are of course the cause. Let him alone until he is inclined to talk; take up your book or your needlework (plea santly, cheerfully; no pouting, no sullen nesa), and wait until he is inclined to be sociable. Don't let him ever find a shirt-1 button missing. A shirt button being off a collar or wristband has frequently produced the first hurricane in married life. Men's shirt-collars never fit exactly | -see that your Jiusband's are made as j well as possible, and then, if he does fret a little abo...
CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859
CHAPTER Yl. Returning home with nothing but the name. ROGERS. The topmost turret of the castle of Strathdean displayed once more the an cient banner of its lords. A triumphal arch, hung with flowers and evergreens, was erected by the village artificers to grace the return of their long wished-for chieftain. Bonfires were prepared, and the tenants formed in procession to greet his lordship. ' Well neebor,' said the owner of the village shop to the busy little tailor, 4 weel Maister Trimmins will the coun tess hersel be here the day ?' 4 Hout, woman, heard ye nae the led dy's dead,-cauld in her grave, puir thing ?' 4 Be gude to us, ye dinna say it: and here was Maister Knox, the steward, ordering articles for the feast in her name.' 4 Is't o' the auld leddy ye speak ?" 4 And wha but she ? though she's no that auld Maister Trimmins.' 4 It's no o' the auld leddy I spake.' 41 heard no word o' a young leddy.

KATE STAFFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 13 August 1859
KATE STAFFORD. ? Two of the men employed by Aylmer on the farm had rowed our party down the river. They had spent the day at the hut of an acquaintance of theirs who lived near Mr. Cresner, and now return ed in a state which made them quite unfit to give any help in managing the boat, Aylmer determined to undertake it himself. ' Can you steer, Kate ?' * No, I cannot.' * Can you, Fanny ?' 41 can try.' Fanny took the helm, but her hands were numbed, and she became so nervous that she could not per severe. 4 Now, John, I will try,' said Kate, 1 if you will tell me exactly ivhat to do, and tell me quietly.' 4 That is right; but take care, mind, a little more to that side ; now, no-don't alter now. Oh you're j ust too late, you nearly ran her aground that time; now, now, steadly-humph, I thought so,' as the boat struck the bank. 'Now we may wait till morning. It is impossible to get her off; why did you not say at once you would not steer ? ' ' I am sure I wish I had,' said Kate. She had...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OP THE HOME COMPANION. Era.- As a stray sequel, styled ' Forming Square,' has appeared in your columns with my initials unexpectedly attached to it, and as the trifling circumstance has been made a handle of to box the compass for tlie fair equestrienne alluded to, allow me to undeceive them, that the sprightly equestrienne is a graceful native born 'Kitty,' of considerable fortitude and archness, who, not withstanding her contempt for boots when she goes abroad in her pkirt, manages her shewy eheval far more correctly than any English young lady of the present day, and infinitely more fear lessly than the young ladies of Brighton, whom many of your readers may have seen on horseback, ridinsr 6ix a-breast along the 'Marine Parade,' with liveried attendants following in the rear. 1 am, sir, yours,

DRATTI OF HUMBOLDT. AXMANDKU YON HUMBOLDT, died at Berlin in May last in his ninetieth year; he was born at Berlin September 1769, and at an early age was deeply absorbed in the study of Chemistry, Geology, and other physical sciences. In his desire to improve the knowledge of Geology, Humboldt became a traveller in the new and old worlds with an energy unrivalled before or since.

Berlin has always been his home, where he engaged the most intimate acquaintance with the reigning sovereign, and where he was the centre of literary and scientific circles-regarded by all with the most unbounded respect. The greatest men of this century have been the chosen friends of Humboldt. In his last hours he was surrounded by his nephews, and his niece, Baroness Bulow, and retained to the end the full use of his faculties.

I'M TOO BUSY. A MERCHANT sat at his office desk, ?vsarious letters were spread before him ; his whole being absorbed in the intri cacies of his business. A zealous friend of the Gospel entered the office. * I want to interest you a little in a new effort for the religious good of your neighbourhood,' said the good man. The merchant cut him off by replying, ' Sir, you must excuse me, but really Fm too busy to attend to that subject now.' . But, sir, the bodies and souls of the people at your door are being led by the devil to ruin,' 4 Are they ? Well, I'm sorry, but I'm too busy at present to do anything.' i When shall I call again, sir ?' . I cannot tell. I'm very busy. I'm busy every day. Excuse me, sir: I wish you a good morning.' Then, bow ing the intruder out of the office, he resumed the study of his papers. The merchant had frequently repulsed the friends of religion and humanity in this manner. No matter what was the object, he was always too busy to listen | to their claims....
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR— [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. 1 ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CJESAR - continued. On the day of election. Caesar's mother ?was so afraid th« great men of Rome might punish him for his ambition in expecting this high office, that she shed many tears when he left his house; hut Caesar embraced her, and said, with a cheerful countenance, that he either would succeed, or go far away to some distant country and live in exile. The mother of Caesar needed not, however, to have been so much alarmed, as he soon returned to tell her that he had been made pontiff of Rome; and he was already dressed in the robes of his new offioe. At this time it was discovered that a number of great men had secretly joined in contriving how the/ might destroy the government of Rome, and place a king upon the throne. The chief leader amongst these persons was Catiline, a j very courageous and clever man, but I greedy of money, and so extremely wicked, that he had murdered his brother and his son with his own hands, and done many...
HINTS FOR HOMES. DOMESTIC SDRGEBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
HINTS FOR HOMES. DOMESTIC SDRGEBY. A FEW hints for the bush, or on emergency may prove useful; always send off for a surgeon if one is to be got, immediately an accident occurs, but treat j as directed till he comes. BLEEDING Is sometimes necessary at once in certain accidents, such as concussion, and therefore it is well to know how to do this, First of all, bind up the arm above the elbow with a piece of bandage or a handkerchief pretty firmly, then place your fiager over the veins at the bend of the arm, and feel if there is any pulsation; if there is try another vein, and if it does not pulsate or beat, choose that one. Now rub the arm from the wrist towards the elbow, place the left thumb upon the vein, and hold the lancet as you would a pen, and nearly at right angles to the vein, taking care to pre vent its going in toe far, by keepiug the thumb near to the point, and resting the hand upon the little finger. Now place the point of the lancet on the vein, push it suddenly inwa...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. OUR GAOLS.—CRIME AND ITS PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
C|e ^Hstralran Unrne Corapattion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. ? OUR GAOLS.-CRIME AND ITS PUNISHMENT. PERHAPS from no place more than where our journal is issued, will the sub ject of crime and punishment strike more horror to the human heart. The huge pillars of stone, frowning in the vast fabrics for the reception of frail humanity, stare us in the face; and, while we daily witness the ingress and egress of so many subjects-victims to our laws, dupes to our customs, and slaves to our habits-perhaps we ought to have excited in us more pity for their sins, than blame. If any man will examine, with quiet earnestness, into the mysteries of our social state, he will pass through a stage of self-enquiry and self-education, to which before he was a stranger. Let him but look upon the contrast between conventional frauds and the less deceptive invasion of the laws, and he will find so narrow a line drawn between them that little or no difference exists, but under the various positions and al...
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. VULPINE PHALANGES. (Phalangista Vulpina.) WHA TAPOA ROO—NATIVS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. VULPINE PHALANGES, (Phalangista Vulpina.) WHA TAPOA ROO-NATIY* THIS animal presents an example of a group termed Phalanger, frequently, but erroneously, called oppossums in the writings of travellers and persons not conversant with natural history. Pha langers form three sections, the first of which is exclusively Australian. In these animals the tail is long, well furred, and naked beneath the tip only. The other two species are distinguish ed by scaly and naked tails, and by a variation in the dental formation. The Vulpine Phalanger is of all the species probably the most oarniverous. The female is destitute of a true pouch, and the teats are two in number. The Vulpine Phalanger is about the size of a cat; in capability it displays but little to interest ordinary observers, the day being passed in sleep; nor when roused up by the approach of night, is it remarkable for activity or alertness. Its furs is soft, fine, and wooly ; the pre dominating tint is...

COLONIAL NEWS. A LECTURE upon the Holy Land was delivered at Waverley, on the 15th inst.. by the Rev. S. Mitchell; the Bishop of Sydney in the chair.

BUNGAREE, KING OF THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
BUNGAREE, KING OF THE BLACKS, THERE aro few old Australian colonists to whom the name of Bungaree is not familiar. King Bungaree and myself were con temporaries : but there was a vast differ ence between our ages. When I first knew him he was an old man over sixty, and I a hoy of twelve. In person, King Bungaree was about five feet eight inches high, not very stout and not very thin, except as to his legs, which were mere spindles. King Bungaree's dress consisted of the cocked-hat and full dress coat of a general officer or oolonel, an old shirt, and no pantaloons. As the king was a person of irregular habits he generally slept as well as fished in his clothes, and his tailor's bill would have been enormous, even if he had had a tailor; but, as he 1 borrowed* his uniform, as well as his money, bread, and rum, his finances were in no way embarrassed. Every new governor, from Governor Macquarie down to Go vernor Gipps (during whose administra tion Bungaree died), supplied him with an ...
