Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. END OF NIGHT THE SIXTH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
Ctn ftigj)ts in a §ar-^oum. BY T, S. ARTHUR. ( Continued from page 267. j END OF NIGHT THE SIXTH. As I sat in the bar-room of the " Sickle and Sheaf" that evening, I noticed, soon after the lamps were lighted, the gentleman referred to in the above conversation, whose sons were represented as visitors at the bar, come in quietly, and look anxiously about the room. He spoke to no one, and, after satis fying himself tha# those he sought were not there, #ent out. " What sent him here, I wonder ?" muttered Slade, speaking partly to himself, and partly aside to Matthew, the bar-keeper. " After the boys, I suppose," was answered. "I guess the boys are old enough to take 'care of themselves.'' " They ought to be," returned Matthew. " And are," said Slade. " Have they been here this evening ?" " No, not yet." While they yet talked together, two young men whom I had seen on the night before, and noticed particularly as showing signs of intelligence and respectability beyond the ordinary visi...
Progress of Temperance in England. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
frosms of WE notice from the English papers that large and influential meetings have been held all over England to welcome and turn to the tiest possible advantage the visit of the Hon. Neal Dow, the founder of a prohibitory law in the State of Maine. In Cumberland, at Pradshaw Craig, fourteen thousand persons assembled on one occasion (the 17th June) to hear this dis tinguished gentleman advocate the Maine law for England, on the very spot where George Fox of old stood to declare the principles he held. Neal Dow was to proceed through Scotland and North Wales. Everywhere arrange ments were made for large meetings. A Band of Hope conference was held in Bristol, on the 5th June, at which Neal Dow was present and Sir Walter C. Trevelyan presided. The great conference of ministers held at Manchester in favour of a pro hibitory law, at which there were some hundreds of all denominations, and from all parts of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, closed most successfully after three da...
Selections. HOW TO MAKE MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
elections. HOW TO MAKE MONEY. LET the business of every body else alone, and attend to your own. Do not buy what you do not want. Use every hour to advantage, and itudy to make even leisure hours use ful. Think twice before you throw away a shilling-remember you will have another to make for it. Find recreation in looking over your business. Buy low, sell-fair, and take care of the profits. Look over your books regu larly, and if you find an error trace it out. Should a stroke of misfortune come upon you in trade, retrench, work harder, but never fly the track ; confront difficulties wit^trnffmchitT^* perseverance, and they will disappear at last. Even should you fail in the struggle, you will be honoured; but shirk the task, and you will be despised and disgraced.

SYDNEY BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
SYDNEY BAND OF HOPE. The inaugural tea meeting of this Band of Hope was held on August 31st: about 100 sat down to tea. The place of meeting, which has been lately occupied as a school, is situated in Clarence-street, between Market and King Streets, and is styled " The Sydney Band of Hope Lecture Room." Mr. J. Hawley and several friends have undertaken the formation and management of the society. After tea Mr. G. J. Crouch was voted to the chair, who after intro ducing the subject of the evening, called upon the secretary, Mr. Coxhead, to read the Report; after which the meeting was addressed by Messrs. jDewey, Griffiths, Lee, Bennett, Davis, Kirby, and Howitt, who all bore testi mony to the advantage that every new formed society would confer upon the community. After passing the votes of thanks to the chairman and others, the meeting separated shortly after ten o'clock. The room was tastefully ornamented for the occasion with flags, wild flowers, Ac. A pianoforte was provided, an...
VALUE OF THE PBESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
VALUE OF THE PBESENT. Are you a Christian ? If not, do you ever expect to be f If so, when ? If God should soon call you to your £nal account, what reason could you give for being impenitent ? Might you not be a Christian now t Delay not, then, now to seek salvation, lest you should put it off too long, or at last seek too late. Receive these questions kindly from one who may never meet you, till the day of judgment. Think of them; think seriously; think prayer fully ; think now.
NEW DISTRESS SIGNALS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
NEW DISTRESS SIGNALS. Some important experiments have been tried at Portsmouth, with the patent detonating and luminous signal, invented by Messrs. Langford and Wilder, of Birmingham ; the composi tion is enclosed in metal tubes, whereas the common light is enclosed in paper oases. The light showed itself so brilliant and diffused at the distance of five or six'miles from the point of ob servation, that it presented the appear ance of a ship on fire.

£5"HE drinking custom reformers of Melbourne are waking up with renewed energy. A conference of delegates from the various societies scattered over Victoria was invited, and held in April last. Representatives met from twenty places. A report of the sittings, which lasted three days, has since been printed and circulated over the colony. An alliance of the societies was formed: giving for the future a oneness to their aim. We notice with pleasure in the report, among the delegates, the names of four ministers : the Reverends J. P. Sunderland, J. Ballantyne, J. Townsend, and J. Bradney; and two M. P's: R. Heales and C. Read, Esquires. The subjects submitted for the consideration of the conference were: 1. Basis of petition to the Legislature, with statistics. 2. The supervision of public-houses, and the opposing of the appointing of persons in the traffic to hold office as magistrates. 8. Paid agency and Victorian alliance. i g 4. The establishment of a book dep6t and a periodical. 5...
The Ladies' Companion. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
C|e fitbies' Companion DEAR LADIES,-We have often seen in the fancy shops of George-street an article labelled " The Ladies Compan ion "; and this all know, to contain scissors, thimble, etc., things very much used in the science of millinery. Again, we have often seen advertise ments in the Herald and Empire, for a Lady's Companion. What sort of ware this is, some may know, and some perhaps might be ignorant enough to send the first described article; but these, though good enough in their place, are common and cheap in com parison with the one we would desire to see our. colonial ladies possess-a ' smile!' What wonders has a smile brought to pass ! We are told that in t]f good old days of chivalry, knights perilled their bodies to gain the appro bation of their fair lady. A smile's prerogative is vast; for in some cases it has even the power to bring back the past, which our poet Moore describes " When first that smile, like sunshine, blessed my sight, Oh what a vision then came o...
The Black Bottle. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
%\t |ottk BY THE AUTHORESS OF " GERTRUDE." THE strokes of an axe, and the yelp ing of dogs, urged on by juvenile voices, mingling with the distressed cries of a pig which, being detected in the potatoe patch, was rather warmly made to cease his satisfactory ?explorations among the rows for a scamper to escape his mischief-loving assailants, were sounds which, rever berating along the wooded hills, indicated the presence of man's abode. It was Zachary Brown's farm. The latter word must not convey to the mind of the English reader, ideas of soft green meadows, or neatly clipped hedges; and orchard trees ruddy with fruit, half concealing the white walls and thatch roofs of the f«*rm buildings. Nothing of the sort. Four unornamented wails of rough split slabs supported a roof covered with sheets -of bark; which were kept in their place by overlaying logs, and stones *wung across the roof by strips of bark. No glass prevented the circula tion of summer or winter's winds through the small...
ONE SAVED IN FORTY-FOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 12 September 1857
ONE SAVED IN FORTY-FOUR. The following striking passage from the life of Sir Charles Napier, Commander-in-chief in Scinde, India, contained in his journal written in 1843, when upwards of sixty years of age, has been forwarded to us by the Rev. Dr. Ross as worthy of remark. Sir Charles proceeds : I had hardly written the above sentence ten days ago, when I was tumbled over by the heat with apoplexy. Forty-three others were struck, all Europeans, and all dead within three hours, except myself! I do not drink ! that is the secret: the sun had no ally ia the liquor amongst my brains.
Photographs. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 26 September 1857
THAT most wonderful of all painters, the Sun, has been pressed into man's service to picture and to delineate for him, with perfect faithfulness, the varied scenes of nature, together with the human form divine. In a minute this strange artist will give you a perfect sketch of anj^scene you may require. Flattery with him is im possible, whilst at the same time he cannot fail to give correctness. The last time " we dared" to address you, we had to comment on the loss of the " Dunbar happily this time we have no such terrible picture to place before you: God's arm has been, mercifully thrown around to protect and guard us. The first view that appears in our camera is in the stillness of midnight. Silently are the bright stars that oversprinkle the heavens, peeping down on the world, and twinkling with delight. All is calm and still, when suddenly we hear the loud clamour of the bells : The loud alarum bells Brazen bells! What a tale of terror, now, their turbu lency tells! In the star...
"THE INTEMPERANCE OF TEMPERANCE." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 26 September 1857
"THE INTEMPERANCE OF TEMPERANCE." NOTHING pleases us better than to see the different classes of society directing their attention to the subject of intemperance, and discussing the different modes by which the giant evil of the day is to be annihilated. We would much rather see Qur own principles attacked than have to deplore apathy and indifference in respect to them, and with especial pleasure we notice that the Month-a journal claiming to be the highest literary authority in our southern world-has cast a glance, though none of the kindest, at the temperance men and their doings. We remember seeing a print representing a worthy son o B> :CHTJ» endeavouring to cultivate the friendship of a contiguous pump which he mistook for a fellow mortal; but the cold-hearted supplier of water not responding to the generous and warm-hearted appeal, he was pronounced by our hero " dead drunk." Our contemporary has come to a similar conclusion in reference to the temperance cause. " Temperanc...

concluded a previous article by some comments upon a Reviewer's QjlJj, opinion of our New South Wales theatres. We resume by noticing what he says of our love of music. His statement is,4 4 A taste for music, however, is general and the concerts are respectably attended, particularly, on the evenings when they are patronised by the Governor." This we believe to be a true testimony, unless Reviewer means to insinuate in the latter part of the sentence that our sycophancy to position is more powerful than our appreciation of sweet sounds. A true love of music (which being interpreted, means neither delight in low buffo-songs, nor the obscene filth to which the degraded listen with rapture, in at least some of England's if not of Sydney's licensed dens of iniquity) is a sign of health in any community; for the glory of music is that she can neither wound nor defile ; and that she so influences as to transport us into a sphere where selfishness and worldliness have no part to play. When...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 26 September 1857
OUR MESSAGE. Our friend " The Month" seems to have grown nervons under the advocacy of our potent principles; seems afraid, in fact, that we shall go so far as to " stop his grog apd as that, according to his own stating, seems to be the inspiration under which his suburban and other sketches are produced, * and having some desire that they should continue, we see no - .-???. -? - See Jfonth No. 3, page 163. alternative in the event of our deeming it expedient to carry matters to the extreme he so much dreads, but that of making a special recommendation that his allowance be served as usual, taken, of course, as a sort of mental medicine, yet on one condition only, that he ceases to brag of his vices and laud them as virtues.
