THE MISTRESS OF A FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
THE MISTRESS OF A FAMILY". The house mother! what a beautiful comprehensive word it is ! how suggestive of all that is wise and kindly, comfortable and good! Surely,, whether the lot comes to her naturally, in the happy gradations of wifehood and motherhood, or as the maiden-mistresi of an adopted family, or-as one could find many instances in this our modern England-when the possession of a large fortune, received or earned, gives her, with all the cares and duties, many of the advantages of matronhood-every such woman must acknowledge that it is a solemn as well as a happy thing to be the mistress of a family. -A Woman's Thoughts about \\omen. NEARLY all brave men have been of a finely organized system, and therefore, i nervous temperament. Julius Caesar was nervous, so was Bonaparte, so was Nelson The Duke of Wellington saw a man turn pale as lie marched up the battery. " That " said he, " is a brave man; he knows his danger, and yet faces it." THE Chinese have a notion that the ...

The Holy Homes. CHAPTER IV. MOTHER AND SON. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
BY 8ILVERPEN. (Continued from page 286. ) CilAPTEIl IV. MOTHER AND SON. iias. LOXWOOD took her way homewards j gieatly pleased by her interview with M Wroxeter. As the steamer glided quietly up the river on its way to Chelsea, and the evening sua fell Serenely ou tii«i water and flitting landscape, a peace was hers, such as can alone arise in connexion with high principles, that is, when some vantage ground is gained for them, or the realisation of some effective point foreseen. She needed such peace, for it was rarely hers. Landing, she made her way to one of those small streets which occupy a portion of what was once the site of Sir Thomas More'sgarden. Here, knocking at a small but respectable looking house, she was admitted by an elderly woman-servant, whose bronzed face told of long residence in a hotter climate than that of England. It was not a lodging-house by the air of comfort and cleanliness visible, and as the old servant led the way into a pleasant back parlour, where t...

tlttiioiis. THEORY OF THE E1VE. The Quarterly Review says, " Dark blue .eyes are most common in persons of ^delicate, refined, or effeminate natures; light blue, and much more, grey ^yes, in the hardy and active. Greenish eyes have generally the same meaning as the grey. Hazel eyes are the more usual indications of a mind masculine, vigo rous, and profound." Shakespere, it is said, had hazel eyes, Swift blue, Milton, Scott, and Byron, grey eyes.

WHERE THERE'S A WILL THERE'S A WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
WHERE THERE'S A WILL THERE'S A WAY. " I learned grammar wh6n I was a pri vate soldier on the pay of sixpence a day. The edge of my berth, or that of the guard bed, was my seat to study in; my knapsack was my book-case; a bit of .board lying on my lap was my writing table; and the txsk did not demand anything like a year of my life. I had no money to purchase candle or oil; in "winter time it was rarely that I could get any evening light but that of the fire, .and only my turn even of that. And if I, under such circumstances, without parent or friend to advise or encourage ?me, accomplished this undertaking, .what excuse can there be for any .youth, however poor, however pressed with business, or however circamst&hced as to room or other incoaveniencies ? To buy a pen or a sheet of paper I wag compelled to forego some portion of food, though in A state of half starvation. I had no moment of time that I could call my own : and I had to read and to write amidst the talking, lau...
Synopsis of Dr. Livingstone's Travels in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
jignopsis of |)r. ftomgstoite's Irakis iu Jfontjj ^fcfot. MANY of our readers have lately heard of Livingstone, the greatest of modern travellers; but few of them, beyond- some unconnected extracts that have appeared in the daily papers, know anything of the magnitude of his discoveries, or the ways and means of their achievement. The general impression conveyed by reading this book, is one of wonder at the untiring energy and fixity of purpose exhibited by the explorer, together with a strong conviction of the protecting power of the Almighty so strikingly vouchsafed, whether in his connection with the natives, or in his struggles with the malaria of JI&Etee tropical »climes. Sixteen years, we may say the whole I lifetime of this man, has been devoted, not to personal aggrandisement-not to the acquisition of riches; but to the diffusion of the gospel amongst i the heathen, and, as a means to that end, the opening up of a large unknown and fertile country to commerce and pro...
The Clouded Dawn; OR, GREAT MEN'S EARLY TRIALS. BY THE AUTHORESS OF "SCENES FROM A LIFE DRAMA," "GERTRUDE," ETC, [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
Clonkir IMuit; OK, GREAT MEN'S EARLY TEIALS. BY THE AUTHORESS OF " SCENES FROM A LIFE DRAMA," " GERTRUDE," ETC, IN our childhood's home there was a volume of Leigh Hunt's Journal and Printing Press, which among us juve niles was known as the " big green book," such title having reference to its size and binding. The motto of this publication will be familiar to many of the readers of the BAND of HOPE JOURNAL. It was this, " To assist the inquiring, animate the struggling, and sympathise with all." Such a profession we believe might be made by this perio dical with much truth; therefore, though the present paper does not refer to temperance, it may be more appro priate than at first sight appears. What more fatal rock in the tide than an aimless existence ? Idleness as the root of all evil has become a proverb. And in pointing out to the young what they may do, since others with no greater, perhaps far less advantages, have con quered and come out glorious, we may be snatching some y...
The Children's Portfolio. THE DYING GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
%\t Cj)ili)reit's |)ot'lfo!ra. THE DYING GIRL. YOUNG friends, have you ever seen in Macquarie-street, a long strange-look ing building with a verandah and balcony, and high iron railings in front of it ? Do you know what place it is ? At any rate, I'll tell you: it is the Sydney Infirmary. There are a great number of sick and wounded people there, and I am now going to tell you of one of them. In one of the beds of No. ward, lay a beautiful little girl, about ten years of age. Her name was Eliza beth W , and a3 I entered the ward the little head turned towards the door, and the large blue eyes filled with tears, for I was not the one she looked for. I went over to her, and said, " How are you to-day, dear ?" " Oh, I am no better, thank you. When will father come ?" 44 What is the matter with you ?" said I. " I have had the croup. We live in a cold house, and since my own dear mother died I have had to take care qf myself. I was ill a long time at home, and then some kind neigh bours...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
^VARIED are the opinions entertained upon the subject of a prohibitory TnI liquor law. In England numbers of people who are not teetotallers are zealously supporting the movement ; in Norfolk Island, one of the dependencies of the Australian Government, the principle has already been brought into operation; and, doubtless, hundreds and thousands of the in habitants of New South Wales regard it as the greatest blessing that could be bestowed upon the colony. Law is the embodied voice of the people ; and when the people in a majority shall demand a prohibitory law at the hands of their legislators, then, but not till then, should it be granted. In our last there is a paragraph in the intelligence relating to the re-enact ment of the Maine Law in Maine, U. S., and now in the following we give the substance of an article from the Crusader, a paper edited by General Carey, who has been distinguished for many years past as an eminent pro moter and powerful advocate of the temperance cause...
THE AUTHOR'S HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
THE AUTHOR'S HISTORY. Of Scottish extraction, his father | a small tea dealer, we find him at the age of ten working in a factory as u piecer," near Glasgow. With his first week's wages he purchased Ruddiman's Rudiments of Latin, and sedulously pursued the study of that language at an evening school, besides devouring every scientific work or book of travel that he could lay his hands upon. At nineteen he became promoted to the post of a cotton spinner in the same factory, and with increase of wages, enlarged the field of study by attending various lectures on medicine, divinity, and Greek, besides scouring (as he himself expresses it) the whole country side collecting samples-thus adding a practical knowledge of botany and geology to his store, as a recreation from bodily and mental toil. Every thing he began he worked at with untiring ardour : placing his book on the spinning jenny, he read sentence after sentence as he passed to and fro undisturbed by the roar of the machinery. T...
CAMDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 11 September 1858
CAMDEN. It is with much pleasure we announce to our readers the formation of a Band of Hope in the above thriving township. In a long and interesting communication we have received from Mr. Simeon Brown, the superintendent of the Primitive Methodist Sabbath School, we learn that the number of members at present is 62. We trust Mr. B will have the active co-operation of the many influential persons in that town, and that we may soon have to announce that the number of members of the Camden Band of Hope is quadrupled.
Gardening. CUCUMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 25 September 1858
darbtning. ctfc UMBER. rne long prickly and Southgate are the best, and although hardy require to be protected at night. The short prickly is most suitable for pickling. The seed should be sown in a frame formed of broad palings and stakes for early produce, and covered over with calico oi1 thick paper oiled. Some well-rotted manure should be spread within, and fine earth sifted over it. The seeds may be sown in rings, ten or twelve together, and thinned out as they come up. The air may then be let in gradually. Water round the bed in dry weather, or place a pan of water without the frame, which will discharge moisture by evaporation. Remove all imperfect buds or rotten leaves, and train the runners by forked pegs.
SURRY HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 25 September 1858
8URRV HILLS. This society celebrated its second Anniversary .on Friday last, the 3rd instant, by an afternoon's sport on the Itandwick Road-a tea festival to the members, and a public meeting in the evening, which was most agreeably spent in recitations, and real Band of Hope speeches. The inclemenc}7 of the weather did not prevent a large attendance-the Wesleyan school-room being full of members and adults, which place is kindly granted by the trustees of the chapel for the use of this Band of Hope -its staunch, warm hearted friend J. R Houlding, Esq., presided on the occasion. The short and pithy remarks of the different speakers were evidently appreciated by the children. The progress of the society, though it has not been so rapid as some of the older societies, its numbers now being 257, an increase of about 85 during the year, yet the attendance at the meetings has been well sustained, and a growing interest manifested. September 17.-Mr. P, R. Houldsworth on Bands of Hope."
