October. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 25 September 1858
Fix wattles and sticks to train peas and scarlet rnnners upon, and set them in the form of arches, so as to afford a shade. Clear and weed the onion, carrot and parsnip beds ; re-set the small onions thinned out of the bed in ground previously prepared. Plant out pump kins, vegetable marrow, cabbages, garlic, and eschalots ; sow, in warm situations tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, nastur tiums, Chili pepper, and capsicums. Sow a full crop of peas of all kinds, and turnips, also celery, onions, leeks, dwar kidney beans, small salad, and land cress The weather is generally very dry at this time, and a little water throughout the garden would be a great advantage Few people in Australia think of irriga tion, although it might be applied so advantageously. If water can be obtained by sinking, select the most elevated spot and form a reservoir or well. This wil collect enough water every day for the plants, and the water may be raised by either a pump or a lever and bucket.

dwliflns. HENRY IV., of France, passing through a is mall town, perceived a congregation .ambled to congratulate him. on his arrival. Just as the principal magistrate had commenced a tedious oration an ass began to bray, on which the king, turn ing towards the place where the noisy animal was, said gravely, "Gentlemen, one at a time, if you please." YOUR cabman is the most aspiring of mortals Whatever rank he may be on, he is always looking for-a hire. " MB. D , if you'll get my coat done by Saturday, I shall be for ever indebted to you."-" Jf that's your game, it wont be done," said the tailor. " MARY, where's the frying-pan ? " " Jemmy's got it, carting mud and oyster shells up the alley, with the cat for a horse."-"The dear little fellow, what a genius he will make! But go and get it, we're going to have company, and must fry some fish for dinner." As Irishman, in speaking of a relative who was hanged, says he died during a tight-rope performance.

Synopsis of Dr. Livingstone's Travels in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 25 September 1858
jiniWMs j)f Jpr, pjinptiwe's Cntkls in Souflj Africa. Continued from page 294. REMAINING but a short time at the Cape, Livingstone found it easier to gain the missionary station of Kuril man, from Algoa Bay ; sailed, there fore, along the coast to Port Elizabeth, and immediately commenced his jour ney inland. Kuruman lies 500 miles due north of Algoa Bay, and was founded by Moffatt in 1823. But few Europeans have penetrated beyond this station, or those who have, never returned, being cut off by fever or the treachery of the- natives. Our explorer arrived here in 1841, and did not return to England until 1856, having spent sixteen years of his life in medical and missionary labours without cost to the inhabitants. As soon as the oxen were a little refreshed, Livingstone, following the instructions of the London Missionary Society, proceeded with a brother divine about 250 miles further north ward, to Shokuane or Shokwan. There they remained but a short time, and returning to Kuruman...

|oeto. THE DYING WIFE. O ! draw the curtains o'er a bit An' let me see the mune, Wi' the winkin' starry lanipiea A' dancing clear abune. The sun's awa' in robe of fir© A' gloriously an' bricht, But it sent a beam to kiss me Before it bade guid nicht. Its bonnie rays gaed ling'ringly, I watch'd ilk partin' smile, For I kent we'd never meet again, An' grat me sair the while. Scarce twenty simmers o'er my head My young an' yearnin' heart, A' glowing wi' affections kind, Oh! 'tis terrible to part. But tak' me in your arms, Jamie Your doatin' deein' wife; An' lean my head upo' your breast As lang's there's ony life. Your tears are fa'in' burningly, I fin' them on my cheek; But calm yersel' and whisper me We hae na long to speak. O monie, monie trystin' nicht I've stolen out iri haste, All purity and happiness, To meet you on the waste. Prood imther since, an' fonder wife, "lis hard to leave so sune; Oh ! fain the young heart wad rebel, But God's will maun be dune. In decent time, ye'll p...
The Children's Portfolio. A FRIEND IN NEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 25 September 1858
%\t Cljilbitit's ^otlfolro. A FRIEND IN NEED. A GENTLEMAN returning from a visit to New Orleans, writes, u I was fortunate enough to secure passage in a line steamer, with but a few passen gers. Among the ladies, one especially interested me. She was the wife of a wealthy planter, and was returning with only one child to. her father's house. Her devotion to the child was touching, and the eyes of an old black ! nurse would fill with tears as she besought her mistress 4 not to love that boy too much, or the Lord would take him away from her.' "We passed through the canal of Louisville, and stopped for a few moments at the wharf, when the nurse, wishing to sec the city, walked out on the guard, at the back ol' the boat, when, by a sudden effort, the chUd sprang from her arms into the terrible current that swept towards the falls, and disappeared immediately. The confusiou which ensued attracted the attention of a gentleman who was sitting in the fore part of the boat quietly reading. ...

olg pomes. BT 8TLVERPEN. (Continued from page 302.J As soon as he had gathered some measurements and papers together, Cyrus took his departure, too, promising to be back again at as early an hour as possible. He then proceeded by a steamer to London Bridge, and landing there, diverged into that mass of streets which lie westward from the High-street, Borough. The direction which had been forwarded to him was to a blacksmith's shop, kept by a widow, who, by the aid of journeymen, carried on a fair trade. After some search he found it in a street of old, dilapidated houses, and the mistress of the place a civil-spoken woman. She was seated at an old desk in a little squeezed-up kitchen, paying her men, but amongst these was not the one Loxwood sought. " John Olave, sir," she said, " isn't here to-night, for during the mid-week he was off as usual on the drunken spree, and hurt his hand. But most likely you will find him at old Doctor Floring's; one of the men met him an hour ago, and ...
THE NEW GOLD FIELDS.—THE FITZROY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 25 September 1858
THE NEW GOLD FIELDS.-THE FITZROY RIVER. QH T the beginning of the present month general trade in Sydney, and H indeed throughout the colony, was exceedingly dull and inactive. Houses of business, both small and great, were cutting down expendi ture in every possible way-even the prospect of the summer trade was dimmed by the latest accounts of the state of the wool market at home. Contractors were ready to enter into engagements barely remunerative workmen no longer dreamt of short hours and large wages, and woe to him who dragged his weary limbs along our Sydney pavements seeking a situation. Public meetings were held to consider the claims of the unemployed, and a large and influential gathering of our citizens met by public invitation, the real object of which was to urge upon our Government a large public expenditure, to prevent our artizans from flocking in numbers to Victoria. Now, however, all this has either changed, or is most rapidlj'- changing. At the sound of the joyous ...

f. s. fc BY THE AUTHORESS OP " OIiD CALEB." SKETCH THE FOURTH.-AUNT ALICE. l>'Tis gweet to know there is an -eye will mark our . , coining, - And look brighter when we come." A GENTLEMAN reclined on . a rich damask couch, in an- elegant mansion overlooking the enchanting-harbour of Port Jackson. His age- might be . forty-five or fifty, perhaps net quite' so much; but his white hair and blanched cheeks told that the constitution was in advance of his age. He looked upon the lovely s.cene before him with that listlessness which familiarity with any .?object often creates,' and turned restlessly upon hi&, downy couch. Dinner was announced ; and as luxury after luxury was placed before him, he just tasted, and then pushed them from him with some expression of discontent. The fish was overdone, the fowl was tough, the tarts were loo sweet, and John had not iced the wine. . Yet Mr. Spencer was not ill: he had only too muGh of tljis world's goods. He had "more than heart could w...
OUR NEW GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 9 October 1858
OUR NEW GOLD FIELDS. CHOUGH full proof is still wanting of the great extent and richness of the Port Curtis Diggings, our accumulating information is all of the most satisfactory nature. The intelligence which has come to hand since onr last issue is most important, and calls for distinct notice at our hands. In most cases it is dangerous for a journalist to attempt prophesying. In our last we ventured to predict the probable effect of the news brought by the " Uncle Tom," and " Albion," and if half we hear be true, *our only error will be that we did not give imagination its full play, and paint a whole community under the influence of " dreams of golden splendour." Information reaches us that the Yictorian diggers in thousands are about to seek our shores, and the fact that every vessel which has left our awn port has been crammed from stem to stern is known to all our readers. Our inland diggings are being rapidly deserted, and every town in our colony is contributing a large quo...
The Children's Portfolio. THE WISE CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 9 October 1858
C|t Clnlteit's ^portfolio. THE WISE CHILD. "Who is that dull quiet looking boy, sitting alone, while his brothers and sisters are all so merry ?" " " That is Edward, my stupid son; he seems incapable of learning, and although now twelve years old he can barely read: I dread the future for him." So said the anxious father of a large family in Sydney in answer to a ques tion put to him by a visitor. Edward seldom talked; and none knew his cares, or joys, but one little sister much younger than himself. A few days after the above remark Scarlatina laid five of the children on a sick bed ; among them was Edward, I the " stupid boy," as he was called. | "You will lose your son Edward !" said the family doctor; "no earthly power can save him." Edward heard the remark so care lessly made, and calling his weeping mother, told her how in secret he had long loved his Saviour, and what joy it was to go to him; blest his father for his Sabbath teachings; and with fervent prayer for his brothers...

% Cjrapto on fife Insurance. SHOWING HOW PADDY RYAN INSURED HIS LIFE. (Concluded from page 315.) MOST vigorously did the whole party commence operations on the whole some viands before them, and many were the humorous sallies of Nelly, (as she presided over the herculean teapot,) which were generally directed at Paddy's blunders or omissions ; for in the excess of his joy at seeing his old long lost friend, " he was," as he expressed it, " not himself at all." " Did yer ever see sich a rum ould crater as Nelly, Mick ?" inquired Paddy, convulsed with laughter, "Be dad she'd make a man laugh if he'd got the cholery mopus, so she would." " Now thin, Paddy, we'll say prayers, and thin Norah will put these gossoons to bed, for yejll git no pace till they're asleep, and thin Mick and yerself can smoke yer pipes comfort ably," said Nelly, after they had finished their meal, at the same time taking from a shelf a large Bible, carefully covered with green baize, which she handed to Paddy, wh...
