What is the State of the Weather? [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
the Statt of % SKeatlw? BEAR READER,-Were you ever in London on a November day, when, as you stand perhaps on one of the many bridges that span the Thames, and look over at the river as it rushes through the arches, seeming so black and gloomy, and along its banks you see the shipping all wet and misty, as if weeping for the sun-y and the gas lights too, burn yellow, and all looks so chilly that you involuntarily utton your coat up to your chin, and the mind assimilating itself to the weather, becomes sad and dreary too. " Our social barometer " indicates that at present we have just such weather-a cloud of gloom seema to hang over this fair city; every heart is dull, for a terrible warning has been given us from heaven. In the darkness of the night God sent the fearful storm; He bid the winds come forth from their cavern homes, tossing the waves in their furiou* sport, and the ship that had safely traversed the 16,000 miles that separate us from our dear fatherland, and had come wi...
Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
Inltllipiru. HEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. 1 THE exhibition of dissolving views was repeated on Monday evening August 17 ; the attendance was the same as on the previous occasion, about 200, who seemed highly pleased with the scenes exhibited. They are certainly the finest ever shewn in this colony, most of them having mechanism attached rendering the pictures complete and lifelike. Among others may be noticed Vesuvius-day time changed into night scene with eruption, the smoke and and fire rising from the crater, and falling around in the most natural manner; while a torrent of lava rushes impetuously down the side of the mountain. In the foreground is the i»ay of Naples, the water of which sparkles brilliantly with the re flection of the fire. Another, a scene in the Arctic regions, with icebergs floating past. Windmills, vessels, and trains in motion ; winter scenes, with snow falling ; and many others. The music of concertina and harp accom panied the scenes. On Tuesday, August 18, a...
THE CROW AND THE PITCHER. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
THE CROW AND THE PITCHER. A crow, ready to die with thirst, flew with joy to a pitcher, which he saw at a distance. But when he came up to it, he found the water so low that with all his stooping and straining he was unable to reach it. Thereupon he tried to break the pitcher ; then to overturn it; but his strength was not sufficient to do either. At last, seeing some small pebbles at hand, he dropped a great many of them, one by one, into th* pitcher, and so raised the water to the brim, and quenched his thirst. Skill and Patience will succeed where Force fails. Necessity is tht mother of invention. | -From James's Fables of Msop. / CHARACTERISTIC REPLIES.-" What | is the object of making a speech in debate ?" was asked. " To show capacity/'said a Frenchman; "Not so," replied an Englishman, " but to set your shoulder to the wheel to advance the business."

A TRUE PREDICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
A TRUE PREDICTION. IT is confidently predicted that on Saturday evening next, between the hours of 8 and 12 o'clock, some hun dreds of the citizens of Sydney will lose their reason! Those who have occasion to walk the streets during those hours will have occular demon stration of the truth of this prophecy. The sufferers will exhibit a variety of symptoms, as observable in ordinary lunacy. Some, who were strong and vigorous but an hour before, will appear to have lost the power of locomotion, and will be seen, with vacant counte nances, and tottering steps, seeking their homes, supported by their wives and comrades. Some will appear to fancy themselves at sea, as though the pavement were rocking and heaving beneath their feet, every now and then leaning against walls and palings, and exhibiting all the usual indications of sea-sickness. Some with a drivelling and idiotic stare, will be wanting to shake hands with every one they meet; while others, fancying themselves seriously affro...
A HAPPY HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
A HAPPY HOME. " Six things," says Hamilton, "are requisite to create a happy home. Integrity must be the architect, and kindness the upholsterer; it must be warmed by affection, and lighted up with cheerfulness, and industry must be the ventilator, renewing the atmos phere, and bringing in a fresh salubrity day by day; while over all, as a pro tecting canopy and glory, nothing will suffice except the blessing of God"
GOOD MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
GOOD MAXIMS. Idleness renders us unfit for every thing. Flattery is more prejudcial than rudeness or anger. Pride is the most ridiculous and the most foolish of all vices. We owe the" greatest gratitude to those who tell us the truth. The longer the saw of contention is drawn, the hotter it grows. If we commit small faults without regret to-day, we shall commit greater ones to morrow. Calumny is the voice of those who have neither a good heart nor a good understanding. Lying is a vice so very infamous, that the greatest liar cannot bear it in other men. In matters of conscience, first thoughts are best; in matters of prudence, last thoughts are best. In everything we do, however trifling, we ought to reflect and reason, otherwise we shall never do anything well. We ought never to believe ill of any one till we are certain of it. We ought not to say anything that is rude and displeasing even in joke, and even jokes should not be carried too far.
The Mater Cart. A TALE OF THE BUSH OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
u A TALE OF THE BUSH OF AUSTRALIA* ALL the numerous evils attached to public houses, and all the hard things said and written-deserving, as I am willing to admit they are-of them, fall infinitely short of the evil caused by those pests of bush society, the " Water Carts." Dear reader, do not for a moment suppose that I am alluding to those harmless, quiet, jogging machines, parading our streets on a summers day to allay the dust, and perform the part of the reluctant showers of rain. I have no quarrel with these, but rather have an affection towards them. Would that the carts I write of were so harmless! Any old bushman who may see these lines will know what to expect from the title. But as all are not bushmen, I must premise that these " Water Carts," as they are familiarly called in the interior, are in reality Grog Carta, or unlicensed travelling public houses! smuggling the fire water of destruction into the far i interior, where taverns do not exist. These drays, sometimes sing...
TO BE TAKEN BY THE DOCTOR'S ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
TO BE.TAKEN BY THE DOCTOR'S ORDERS. ON Sunday, an Irishman made a sudden rush into a druggist's shop in town. Drawing from his pocket a soda-water bottle, filled to the brim with some pure liquid, he handed it across the counter and exclaimed, " There, doctlior, snuff that, would you ?' The doctor did as directed, aud pronounced the liquor to be genuine whiskey. " Thank you, docthor," said the Irishman, "hand me it back again.'* The doctor again did as directed, and asked Patrick what he meant. Och, then," said Pat, " if you will have it, the Praste tould me not to drink any of this, unless I got it from the hands of a docthor. So, here's your health, and the Praste's health, and the health of Moses! - Glasgow Daily News.
A HINT FOR WORKMEN IN POOR HEALTH, WHO HAVE TO RISE EARLY, AND TO WALK A GREAT DISTANCE BEFORE BREAKFAST. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
A HINT FOR WORKMEN IN POOR HEALTH, WHO HAVE TO RISE EARLY, AND TO WALK A GREAT DISTANCE BEFORE BREAKFAST. Into the bottom of a tumbler or sugar-basin put the yolks of two eggs, and mill them up into a froth, with some powdered lump sugar or brown sugar: then fill the tumbler or basin with boiling coffee, and you will have a " before breakfast" fit for a king, and on the strength of which you may defy malaria, or a ten miles' walk. I write this for the " delicate," as health is everything to them, for themselves and families; and is far better than the morning dram, or glass of beer, and it is a cheaper and far better tonic than can be purchased at the doctor's shop. Engineers on railways agree that coffee is the very best thing to take early in the morning. Plumbers, - painters, and glaziers, should drink good milk." Builder.
TO MOURNING FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
TO MOURNING FRIENDS. Why now mourn ye, 0 ye weepers; Ye also ready be, 0 sleepers! I am just the same as ever; I am God-I change-no-never! The " Dunbar " struck, and all was o'er, Those lov'd ones sank to rise no more; But parents, children, all shall meet Before my holy mercy seat. Ah! why then weep ye for the dead, Why weep because the spirit's fled. And left its weary home of clay To dwell in peace and joy for aye. Sydney. E. A.

jfktiims. EGGS IN ENGLISH. JL storekeeper at Ballaarat preferring good English to bad, was stopped with, " What's eggs this morning ?" " Eggs of course/' replied the dealer. " I mean, how do they go?" u Go? Where ? " " Pshaw ! " says the customer, getting up his fury, " what do you-want for eggs." "Money, sir, money, or good endorsed credit!" replied the dealer. " Don't you understand the English language, sir?" says the customer. "Not as you mangle it, I do not," responded the egg merchant. " Then-what is - the - price-per-dozen-for -eggs." " Eighteen-pence, sir, and very fine.'' They traded.
RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 29 August 1857
RAYMOND TERRACE. A -Band 01 Mope has been iormed at this thriving and pretty little township, and from the earnest and spirited ex ertions which have been used so fax by those persons who have taken a leading part in its formation we have sanguine hopes of its lapid progress.

Mr. J. H. Hawley is the secretary, and he has the active co-operation of Mr. Bishop, the worthy superintendent of the Wesleyan Sabbath School.
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
PITT STREET. Eight hundred juveniles, with their friends, were present at the School of Arts on the evening of September 2nd, to hear the amusing trial of John Barleycorn. The general appearance of a Court of Justice was well tustained in the arrangements of the platform; judge, jurymen, prisoner, clerk, counsellors, crier, and witnesses, occupied their respective positions. This, with the hall densely crowded in every part, made an imposing spectacle. The examinations of all those witnesses whose voices enabled them to make themselves heard in so large a building, were listened to with intense interest. A vote of thanks was passed at the conclusion to the youthful company who had sustained the characters in the trial, which was responded to by Mr. George Webber in behalf of the Bathurst-street society. About £9 10s. was taken at the door for admission, the largest sum ever taken by the society. Last Wednesday recitations and addresses occupied the evening.
Poetry. HOUSEHOLD FORTUNE-TELLING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
HOUSEHOLD FORTUNE-TELLING. Be sure you're up early, dear Jane, Get the morning work speedily through; There's a long letter coming, that's plain, If ever a candle told true : See, the spark is as clear as a star; 'Tis a sign never known to betray : And the stranger, you know, at the bar, Is the letter that's now on its way. When at tea we were seated, last night, I wonder'd what luck I should find; So I shook the cup round quick and light, And my fortune prov'd quite to my mind! There was somebody, some time to call, ! A letter to come and a ring': Some value these signs not at all, But fate's a most wonderful thing! C. SWAIN.

Mp Apple Tree. FOR THE LITTLE ONES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
Hi Uple Cm. FOE THE LITTLE ONES. BY UBS. BEDFORD. '' FREDDY MORGAN, will you come home with me alter school, and see my apple tree ? It is such a beauty ! all covered over with rosy-cheeked apples. I do believe there is a sack of them at least." The little boy who spoke thus to his playmate was Willie j Grieves. His own cheeks were as ' rosy as the apples of which he was so proud, and his clear blue eyes were so : merry and looked so truthful that you j would have said on meeting him, " I i could trust that little fellow with untold goldand so he might have been trusted, for he never told a lie. One day the schoolmaster went into the playground in great anger, and said quickly, " Boys ! boys! who has been throwing balls through my study , window, and not only broken the win dow, but destroyed my choice plants which I had reared with so much .are ?" 1 The boys ran forward at the sum mons, and " Not I, sir," " Not I, sir," "Not I, sir," was boldly uttered by nearly all of them.

MONSTER MARQUEE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
MONSTER MARQUEE. A Mr. Wm. Hibbert in England, has constructed a tent of enormous size on a new model, much superior to ordinary tents for public meetings. Some idea of its capacities may be gathered from the following advertise ment appearing in the Alliance Weekly News: AN Extraordinary Phenomenon in . Acoustics, in connection with HIBBERT'S MONSTER MARQUEE, which, although covering an area of 20,000 square feet, and calculated to hold seated 8000, or standing 16,000 persons, a person speaking or even reading can be heard at the utmost distance-viz. 64 yards from the speaker-showing that they are eminently adapted for public meetings, preaching, &c.
