THE SEAT OF WAR IN EUROPE, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
THE SEAT OF WAR IN EUROPE, Many questions are asked since the war commenced, as to the locality of the principal places. Where is Sardinia? Where is Turin ? Where is Alessandria ? Who is Victor Emanuel? &lt;fcc. In fact, a general want of information on these points appears to exist; and the object of the present article is, in as brief a man ner as possible, to supply that informa tion. Sardinia, the ally of Italy, is the name of the dominions of the House of Savoy, ?which constitute a monarchy, the head of which is King Victor Emanuel. These states consist of-1st, the Duchy of Savoy ; 2nd, the Principality of Pied mont ; 3rd, the Duchy of Genoa; 4th, the county of Nice. Piedmont is situated in the centre of the kingdom of Sardinia, and composes its principal mass : Savoy is in the north-west, and Genoa in the south-east. The whole of Sardinia is only about 100 miles in breadth from its western to its eastern frontier. Turin is the capital of Piedmont, and the residence of ...

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. 14. H. B.-ST. JCDE'S WELL, RANDWICK.-The formation of this convenience and blessing was suggested to the mind of a water drinker, whose eyes were often gladdened by seeing a beautiful limpid stream running down the hill in the driest weather; his ideas were taken up by the indefatigable Randwick pioneer, S. H. Pearce, Esq., who thought it was the legitimate work of the road trust to add to the comfort of man and beast, who pay them tolls. The pre sident of the trust ordered the work to be com menced:-the labour was found by the trust, the material, ladel, chain, and inscription was done at the expense of two gentlemen in the neighbourhood. The fountain was opened in due form by a lady nearly 20 years a staunch teetotaller, who, in an appropriate speech, named it 'St. Jude's Well,' hoping it might refresh many a traveller.-B. B. H., Randwick. 16. LILLIE, Sydney.-If LILLIE will allow me to offer her advice I should beg her acceptance of the following....
THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER XXIII. FROM GIN TO DEEPER SIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEN. 4 (Continued from page 330.) CHAPTER XXIII. FROM GIN TO DEEPER SIN. As the sequences and results of virtue may be calculated, so may those of sin. Allowing for variations begot by the col lateral differences of physical, educa tional, and social position, there are in the descending scale of vice, as in the ascending scale of virtue, distinctive laws that never alter. From good to better, from bad to worse, are laws as positive as the more rigidly ascertained ones of experimental science. Thus, once a confirmed gin-drinker, Nelly Appleshaw, in her sad career, varied no way from the old rule. A sot, a slat tern, a spendthrift, a brawler; then came steps into a deep, still lower. As soon as she was conscious that Joe and her children knew her for a drunkard, all at tempt to conceal her vice passed away. She went out when she liked, came in when she liked, sold what she pleased, and soon the number of her daily drams was only limited by the extent of means...

KATE STAFFORD. . BE gude to us- tis the Earl himsel.' TTrimmins rushed to the door, and flourished the waistcoat in the manner of a flag above his head, The colours those of the family livery-produced a fine effect, and catching the eye of the occupant of the travelling carriage, now making its way through the crowd, pro duced a special bow of acknowledgment. The cortege passed oni the tailor mingled with the crowd. . Saw ye ony thing like the family likeness?' said one. . He meeght be the auld Earl's son, nae waur.' .

'LODGER'S' SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
'LODGER'S' SUNDAY. ALL my life long I have been a lazy man, a very sloth, a sluggard, a dreamer of dreams, a hater and contemner of every species of labor, a notorious, incor rigible, unawakeable lie-a-bed, I have never, that I know of, seen the sun rise. I believe he does rise, because I always find him up when I get up, and because every body says so, but I never ascertained the fact by personal observa tion, and don't suppose I ever shall. I should like to have slept side by side with Rip Van Winkle, in Sleepy Hollow, and .would rather have been a bed-maker in the Castle of Indolence than have dwelt an early riser any where else. To mo 4 repose' is in fact what to the poet it was in fancy, 'the sweetest bliss of earth,' and ' the cream of all delights' breakfast in bed. One morning, or rather day, last week, lying, more meo, in a sort of plea sant trance between sleeping and waking, a state of existence known only to your genuine lie-a-bed, I was led by a dreamy process of mental...
CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
CHAPTER VII. The babble of the stream Fell, without the steady glare Shrank one sick -willow sere and small. The river bed was dusty white, And all the furnace of the light Struck up against the blinding wall. MARIANA IN THE SOUTH. The season which had succeeded the Alymers' arrival in the colony had generally been fine, but a long continu ance of hot weather had dried the water holes, and want of water began to be spoken of-to be feared-and ere long to be felt. The sky was like brass, the earth parched and dry, the young leaves withered on the trees. The poor animals seemed to lose the instinct which should have guided them to the scanty shade thrown by the gum-trees. They stood in the open ground, apparently lost to every sense but that of overpowering thirst. The insect world were on the wing, buzzing, stinging, and adding to the torments of the suffering animals. The places where waterholes had been, became beds of thick tenacious clay, fiere and there a blade of greenish grass ...
POEMS, I. HAPPINESAS AND FAITH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 27 August 1859
POEMS, BY CHARLES HAMPER. i. H&.PMNESS AND FATT&. No man, ne woman, can be worldly happy. Some flying cloud of infinite despair Some haggard sense of destiny,-will come 'Over our spirits, like a drear eclipse, Even in the mornings of our fairest jays! For so it must be, in a World like this, With mortals conscious ef mortality: Conscious that fortune in her earthly mould Casts all the forward intergrowths of Time, Uninfluenced by the wish that would festoon The random sprays, despite their first brute bent, - Into the bowers of a sequestered weal: Conscious that Love, so mighty in itself, Godlike and capable in pure resolve, Is weaker even than a wind-shaken reed When it would save from inward fear and loss, And bodily decline, and sorrow, and death, Its object! Something of all this must wring Even the thoughtless in their lightest hour Must shudder at their hearts, and give their eyes To see life's brightest hopes burn dim awhile Under the shadow of a swift despair...

KATE STAFFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
KATE STAFFORD. Wr hare already explained that Lord Strathdean's heir was but distantly re lated to him. The failure of successors in his own line was embittered to the haughty spirit of the old lord by the dis union which had made the Lennoxs of Craillie strangers to the elder branch of their family, and the unforgiven disobe dience of his own and only daughter had concentrated his wrath upon Captain William Lennox. Captain Lennox and Lady Edith had wandered long in foreign lands. They had held no communication with the family which had rejected them. Lord Gerald had traced them to New Zealand. Thenceforth no certain information could be obtained. They had sailed for Syd ney, but his enquiries in the colony of New South Wales had failed to discover them. Shortly after Lord Strathdean's death, howver, which soon followed that of his son, an individual presented him self, who was at once acknowledged by I&lt;ady Strathdean as the rightful heir. The strong and distinctive famil...

CHILDRENS' OFFERINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
CHILDRENS' OFFERINGS. It often happens that people of limited means are called upon to do great things, and not (infre quently childre n have achieved great successes in enterprises which at first appear out of the range of children's immagination. Hence it comes about that we read so much of Juvenile Mis sionary Societies building ships for mission pur poses, and purchasing Bibles for distribution among the heathen, all being done by the united «xertion of young minds. To illustrate this, a case has occurred in the remote district of Gun dagai, a town some 2S0 miles in the interior of the Colony, and on the banks of the Murrum bidgee, which deserves our special notice. Till within the last six months there has been no 8abbath School, Church or Minister, in that town; some few months ago a gentleman and his wife took up their residence there, and determined on starting a eabbath School. The idea was carried out with spirit and energy, and a good school soon established: the numbers ...
YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
YOUNG M,EN?S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION BAZAAR. A fancy bazaar is about to be held in the Tem perance Ha.ll, Pitt Street, far the purpose of raising necessary funds ta pay a debt that at present rests upon this Association. This debt has been incurred in consequence of the Com mittee having had to occupy no less thaa three suites of rooms within a few months. Since removing to their present premises, hawever, their income has very nearly covered their expen diture, so that the debt once paid off it is not likely any other will accumulate. We are given to understand that there will be a very beautiful collection, both of useful and fancy goods, at this Bazaar, as many ladies for seme time have been generously, as well as strenuously, preparing for it. And we confidently predict that those who visit it will come away highly gratified.
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERFEN. (Continued from page 330.) NOT because Ruth was less a favorite -but because her mother had been very rude to him, when he had called last, and had bidden him go there no more. He had obeyed her for a time, though con scions that she was in a state of inebria tion when she said so; till now, no lon ger being able to resist a wish to see his little favorite, and coming into the neigh bourhood with some work he had been effecting for a gentleman, he sought her out and found her thus. With quite a choked utterance he asked her how long she and Nelly had sat there, and when her mother was coming home. The little girl told him that she and her sister had been there since early morning, and as to the time their mother would be home, no one knew; it might not be till the morrow night, it often happened so. Then he asked her about her father, but as she had a bad cold, and spoke hoarsely, little Nelly replied for her, and said, that he might not return till late, a...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
%\t Australian loittt Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. ? CALIFORNIA. IT is exceedingly interesting to discover the source of a mighty river, equally so the first track marks of a band of pioneers, who lay the foundation of a mighty-state. In our readings in an old magazine the other day, a short paragraph conducted us to the very fountain head of that great river of emi gration flowing during the last few years towards California. In looking back at the history of new countries and colonies, we are often struck with their small yet significant beginnings. Perhaps no country has risen so rapidly as California; yet a little more than eighteen years since the determination was only just formed by a company of enterprising men, of making the attempt to Teach the distant part of the North American Continent, there to find a home, and, as the sequel shows, to found a state. Its present greatness doubtless exceeds the most sanguine dreams of those hardy pioneers. The following extract ...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR—continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ? ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR- continued. Having now spent most of his money, Caesar got himself appointed governor of Spain, and prepared to leave Rome. But an unexpected difficulty occurred; for several persons to whom he owed large sums of money refused to let him go away till he had paid them, which he could not possibly have done, if it had not been for Crassus, who was the richest man in Rome, and who lent him eight hundred and thirty talents, with which he paid all his creditors: he then set out on his journey. When Csesar was passing through a little obscure town on the Alps, one of his friends laughed and said, that surely in such a very small village no one would be caring in the least degree about rank or greatness. But Caesar replied, *1 would much rather be the greatest man in this little plaoe than the second man in Rome P Caesar sometimes sacrificed his own comforts for other people. On one occa sion, when one of his attendants was taken ill> h...
