The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 7 June 1856
The Glass of Gin. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 165.) BUT the nature of Alice was such a ge nuine thing, and; by following its own - promptings, it £erformed its part always so fittingly, as to make her feel, with Harold's assistance in talking and fetch ing the playthings, as much at home with the sick child in an hour, as if she had known and tended him for a year. She helped Harold to sail the little fleet upon the counterpane, to range it in bat tle line, and descend upon a hostile coast ; to draw a frigate on a slate, to make a foresail for a tiny man-of-war ; till at last; as the pallid lips of the sick child warmed into smiles, and pain was lulled, and petulancy hushed, be nestled to her arm^ which leant upon the pillow. . Whilst the children thus grew merry, old Pinch was accidentally mentioned, and Alice saying he was down stairs, in one moment Harold had hounded off ; presently returning, with the old dog squeezed in his arms, in a way evidently vëry uncomfortable ito the jold fall...
The Devil's Walk. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 21 June 1856
The Devil's Walk. During a continued snow-Btorm in England 'asft year, some mysterious footprints were ob served near Exeter, in Devonshire. They were marks of a strange footstep-a hoof-and the track was easily traced for forty miles, it was said, nearly in a straight line. The creature seemed to have gone over high hedges, over walls, and across the river, without difficulty. The people of the country parts were alarmed ; many talked, and tried in vain to conjecture the origin of these footprints ; and at length most were content to fancy they were super' natural, and called the track, "The Devil's Walk." vlbout the same time, the like prints in the snow were discovered in Somersetshire and Gloucestershire. What could all this be ? In other days priests, monks, and over-credulous people would at once have said, " There is some strange evil lurking in the land, and Satan is let loose." But what is the explanation of the whole ? It is the following interesting fact:-The se vere and r...
GOLD DUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 21 June 1856
GOLD DUST. Of all the passions, jealousy is that which exacts the hardest service, and pays the bitter* est wages. He that has lived without a God, would wish to die without one. Ignorance has no light; error follows a false one. Slight condescensions cost little, but are worth much. Concealment is the grave of integrity. Great accomplishments require great re* sources. The nearer decision, the stronger is hope. He is most . powerful; who it able to com* mand himself.

At about 9 o'clock the framework of the bridge fell through, and among the spectators, some 20 in number, was a little boy about twelve years of age, named Eli Rheem; who, remembering that the express passenger train was then about due, started oft at the top of his speed to en deavour to stop the train, whieh he knew must be close at hand. As soon as he reached the curve, about two hundred yards from the bridge, he observed the train coming at full speed,; and, fearing that be would be unable to stop it unless by the use of e...
