A life Picture in Naw To rk CONCLUDED FROM jPAQK 173. ANOTHJSR hand clings to. her dress, and looks up with such an appealing look, and says, ' Don't go, mother ; 'they will take^ care of father. Don't leave us/ She looked upon her sickly boy, and thought ot the night he was born. Why did, site start, and turn round 1 Did som&lt;^ one pull her by the hair? No ; it was^ otjly fancy. A sort of magnetic influence linked with thought. That twinge decided her ; that twinge decided bis iate, aod saved her children's Hves. She went home with them, and tired na- 1 ture slept in spite of mental agony. At four o'clock the bells rung for 'fire; it was long before she could wake Iraffltei" ently io count the eight strokes whi^h told it was in her district. Dreamily unconscious of danger, she moves not till she hears a crash and sees alight through the small rear window, when she springs up, opens the tloor, looks ont in the di rectioiv of Vbe stairs, and meets a burst of flame ^fld smok...
A Great Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 21 June 1856
A Great Thought. The dying Werder- said to one who watched in his siek-chatn Wer, " Give me a great thought, that 1 m?ty refresh my self with it." It was indeed a beautiful request. What thinker has not felt the refreshing influence ot a great thought ? Wh$n the mind enters the waves of a vast fresh thought, the feeling is ueli^lj.t ful, as when on a delightful July.loom ing the body is plunged beneath ihe soitly rippling waters of a summer ocean. I do not know what thought was tiiven the learned German, but I know what, should have given him. I wv»uhi, haye said, there is no thought, my friend, greater,or mare likely to refresh you than this, " That Christ Jesus'came into the world to save sinners, of whoiji f am chief." It was in the waves of thi& grieat thought that the dying magnates of hte rature and reasoning, Dr. Samuel Johfc son and Bishop Buller, laved iheir cjepart* ing spirits, and felt refreshed. And thousands of lesser note have, in the ar ticle of death, likewi...
The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 July 1856
The Glass of Gin. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 196.) Half breathless, half disbelieving, the Admiral rose and came near him. ' Why, how is this, boy V 'Dear grandpapa, Clive wonld not let you know before; but I have sat up a little for several days ; she wanted me to be more cured before you knew, lest it were not certain, any you were disap pointed. But I feel like a giant to night.' The ,old man bowed his head upon his hand, and only saying, ' God bless you, girl, God bless you,' left the room, for he knew he was weaker than a child. But in a little while, whilst the boy still sat, both Molly and Pompey came in. The old nurse came quickly to the bed, and sobbing, clung ronnd Alice. 4 Dear, dear miss, the Admiral has been in to my room to say that, his mother, in heaven, will bless you. Yes, the young widow, who died in giving the little one birth, will bless you; yes, their seaman father, who once lay a little infant in these arms, will bless you out of Heaven, where he is, for he perishe...
THE SPIRIT OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 July 1856
THE SPIRIT OF DflATtt- ' BT CHURL Eg MACKAY. Thb Gin Fiend cast his eyes abroad. And looked o'er all the land, And number'd his myriad worshippers With his bird-like long right hand. , He took his place in the teeming streets, And watched the people go, Around and-about, With a buzz and a shout, For ever to and fro. And it's'Hip!' he said, 'hip! hip ! hurra f For the multitudes I see, Who offer themselves in sacrifice, And die for lore of me !'. There passed a man in the crowded way, With eyes blood-shot and dim; He wor« a coat without a sleeve, And a hat without a brim; His grimy hands with palsy shook, And fearfully he laughed, Or driveled and swore, As he clamour'd for more Of the burning poison draught. And it's ' Hip !' said the Gin Fiend;-? hipjK hurra! Success to him over his bowl; A. few short months have made him mine Brain, and body, and soul!' There sat a madman in his cell Palm-clenched, with lips compressed God's likeness blotted from his face, And fury in his breast. T...
PEACE. Blessed are the Peace Makers. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 July 1856
. PEACE. Blessed are the Peace Makers. Two short years have passed away since our beloved Father-land unsheathed the sword, to defend the rights and li berties of a suffering dominion. Alas ! how many have gone to their final rest ing place,' since that ever memorable day in March, 1854. Pestilence and the sword have wounded many a loving parent's heart,- sons, husbands, fathers, and brothers, have alike beeu strnck down in the bloody Alma, Inkerman, Balaklava, Sebastopol. The Generel and the Private have each shed their last drop of blood for their Country's cause. The victories, of which we are alas too proud to boast, have cut off from society thousands of human beings, who left their native soi] full of strength and vigor. But the Sound of War is no longer heard-the aiching ^eart again leaps for joy at the / anticipation of soon seeing the fond bro ther or the affectionate father. The wi dow and the orphan, how sad ,their case-the sound of cannon to them must be as the sad tolli...
