CORRESPONDENCE. ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
CORRESPONDENCE. ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OTJB LAST. 20.-W. V.-In answer to your question I would beg to say, that if two parties of the ages you name are married without their friends' consent, their friends cannot set aside the marriage. If they are married by license, some one must take a false oath that the young man has the necessary consent; his marrying without con sent would not operate a forfeiture of his property. There is one serious consideration, and that is, that if the husband choses to desert his wife, she has no legal claim upon him, in consequence of having married him under age, without his friends consent.-ANTRIM, King-st. 21.-E. S. No -G. J. S. 22.- WALTON.- I think the justices have no jurisdiction; but you have a remedy by an action at law. In Sarch v. Blackburn, 4 c. and p. 297, Tindal, C. J. expressed himself upon the subject in the following terms : I think a man has no right to place a dog too near the door of his house that any person coming to ask for mone...
COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
COLONIAL NEWS. A meeting was held at the Sydney Chamber of Commerce, to consider the proposal for telegraphic communication between Great Britain and Australia; a resolution was adopted to the effect that Mr. Gisbourne's proposition was most feasible, and was strongly recommended to the earnest attention of the Govern ment-The ball in honor of her Majesty's Birthday came off at the Government House on the 24th ult.; about 1800 persons were present-A Fancy Bazaar, in aid of the School of Industry, was held in the Government Gardens on the 2ofh and 26th: about £600 were realized -The foundation stone of anew Wesley an Chapel was laid at Newtown on the 3rd ult. by the Hon George Allen, M.L.C.; several hundred persons were present-The Legislative Council and Assembly took their seats and the usual oaths on the 30th ult., Sir Daniel Cooper was re-elected Speaker-Five bullocks broke loose from an enclosure on Sunday the 28th ult. and rushed madly through Sydney, severely injuring several ...
THE LODGBE'S SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
THE LODGBE'S SUNDAY. GENTLE reader, have you never, in your . wanderings round this world of care' homeless, perhaps, and friendless, weary of foot, more weary still of heart-light ed, as by angel-guidance, on some charmed | spot, some leafy dell, or gentle murmur-1 ing brook, where trouble seemed to leave you; where you might sit and think, and not be full of" sorrow; bathing your tired spirit in a holy calm ? O, there are many such spots on this beautiful earth, and happy they who find them. But would you have all your wounds healed, all sorrow turned to gladness, bitterest pain turned lulled to the calm est rest, go, as I did that happy morn ing, to those pleasant 4 courts,' where the waters of joy run always sweet; the j true Bethesda of these later days, and there lave and drink. It is of all places the holiest. The world may not enter there. Your cares and miseries, like the shoes of Moses, must be cast off, while you stand there. You may not even think, you can only feel; fee...
NATURAL HISTORY. THE GORILLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
NATURAL HISTORY, » - THE GORILLA. WE have departed from Australian Natural History for the purpose of noticing this discbvery. The Gorilla is a new species of ape discovered in Western Africa. Professor Owen received some account of it from Dr, Savage, a missionary in Gaboon, W.A., in 1847; and in February, 1859, he read a paper on the Gorilla, before the Royal Institution. It is said to be the most closely allied of any animal to the human race. The gorilla is of the average height of man, five feet six inches; his brain case is low and narrow, and, as the fore part of the scull is high, and there is a very prominent ridge above the eyes, the top of the head is perfectly flat, and the brow, with its thick integument, forms a " scowling pent-house over the eyes," which flare with a baneful emer ald light, when the fierce passions of ffce animal are aroused. Couple with this a deep lead-coloured skin, much wrinkled, a prominent jaw with the ca nine teeth (in the males) of* huge-size,...
INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
INTEMPERANCE. Intemperance, thou bane, strange, fearful, vice, Thou dark perverter of the human race, Vile desolater of the heart of all That makes existence precious to the soul. Where'er thy presence comes, 'mid rich or poor, The lofty or the low, thou dost destroy, Dost hurl thy victims past repentance down. Beyond the reach of struggling love to save, Of prayers to move or virtue to reclaim. Till like the maden'd steed which hurries on, With furious bounds, towards the dread abyss, Where crashing headlong down he sinks to death. Till ruin in thy rash and desperate track Comes thundering on with overwhelming force, Till life at length is quenched in guilt and shame' Thon murderer of the soul!-thou monstrous sin! What days of agony, what nights of .tears, Through long, long hopeless years, thou dosl neglect. Lo, trembling yonder view a piteous group Qf children, hiding, from a father's sight: T A mother next, with babe upon her breast, A pale young blossom scarce to life innured, ...
HARRY WILMOT; OR, THE HUNTER'S MISHAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
HAKKY WIL5T0T; o»r THE HUNTER'S MISHAP. IIARKY WILMOT was a tall lumbering young fellow, something over twenty, with a frank, open countenance, and a pair of bold blue eyes that were silent but powerful recommendations in his favor; in fact, good humour and good na ture were legibly stamped in every linea ment. His fine figure struck one imme diately; nearly six feet three inches in height, full formed, muscular, athletic; his shoulders wide aud evenly spread, falling down in a gentle undulation ; his chest deep, ample and swelling, denoting great strength and a powerful constitu tion. Harry Wilmot had been brought up by an old aunt, to whose fond indulgence he probably owed some of his careless, lazy habits; but these latter had only been apparent to strangers. The good old lady had lived and died in the devout belief that her Harry was the finest, dearest, best young man in the world; in fact, an abridgement of all perfections. One other person in the village had always most coinc...
REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS OF THE RAILWAY TO DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 10 September 1859
REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS OF THE RAILWAY TO DESTRUCTION. THB Directors take pleasure in re assuring. their numerous friends and patrons that the Road to Ruin is now in good order. Within the last three months it has carried more than three hundred thousand passengers clear through, from the town of Temperance to the city of Destruction, while the number of way passengers is encouraging. An enormous amount of freight, such as mechanics' tool?, household furniture, and even whole farms, have gone forward; and the receipts of the year have been so large that the directors have resolved to declare a dividend of five hundred per cent. The track has been much im proved* and relaid with Messrs. Diabolus and Co.'s patent rail. The grades are reduced to a dead level, and the switches are brought to such perfection all along the route as to jerk the cars in a moment from the main track, to avoid collision with the Total Abstinence engine and the Temperance trains which have re cently occasioned...
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
FACTS, PUN, AND FANCY. DEFINITION OP A NEWSPAPER.-. We ' are to-day compelled,' says an American editor, 'in consequence of the misappre hension of many of our readers, to define what a newspaper really is. It (and let those in arrear for the last quarter mark well) is a luxury which those who cannot afford to stump down for in advance, or promptly on the day their quarter is up, should never for a moment think of in dulging in.' AMERICAN . LADIES.'- Tn America all females are * ladiesthe noble word 4 woman ' is never heard. Miss Martineau wishing to see the women-wards in a pri son at Tennessee, was answered by the warden, 4 We have no ladies here at pre \ sent, madam.' A lecturer discoursing on the chracteristics of women, illustrated thus: * Who were the last at the cross ? Ladies. Who were the first at the sepul chre? Ladies.'

HINTS FOR HOMES. "POTATOES FKTED WITH FISH. I Take cold fish and cold potatoes. | Pick all the bones from the former, and mash the fish and the potatoes together. Form into rolls, and fry with lard until the outsides are brown and crisp. For this purpose, the drier kinds of fish are preferable. This is an, economical and execellent relish. Potatoes and other vegetables may be mashed with onions. POTATO CHEHESE CAKES, One pound of mashed potatoes, quarter .of a pound of currants, quarter of a pound of sugar and butter, and four eggs, to be .well mixed together; bake them in patty pans, having first lined them with puff paste.

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE NATIVE BEAR, OF KOALA. (PHASCOLARCTOS CINEREUS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. __ 4 - THE NATIVE BEAR, OR KOALA. (PHASCOLARCTOS CINEREUS.)] Tftis extraordinary animal is thick and stoutly made, with robust limbs and powerful claws: there is no tail. The head is large, the muzzle blunt, and the naked space in which the nostrils are situated, is continued along the naaal bones till it nearly attains the level of the eyes. The ears are very large, standing out fr«m the sides of the head, and tufted with long full fur; the eyes are small. The fore feet have each five toes, armed with sharp claws; these toes are divided into two sets: the first, or inner, two forming a pair by themselves. The hind feet have also five toes, consisting of a large and powerful thumb, without a nail, and four strongly clawed toes, of which the two first are united together as far as the last joint. The Koala is not very abundant, but is found in many parts of New South Wales. In its habits, it is nocturnal and arboreal; it climbs with great facility, and in ...
TO-DAY AND TO—MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
TODAY AND T O-M OEBOW. To-day, man lies in pleasure, wealth, and pride, To-morrow, poor of life itself denied. To-day, lay plans for many years to come; To-morrow, sinks into the silent tomb. To-day, his food is dress'd in dainty forms; To-morrow, is himself a feast for worms. To-day, he's clad in gaudy, rich array; To-morrow, shrouded for a hed of clay. To-day, enjoys his halls built to his mind; To-morrow, in a coffin is confined. To-day, he floats on honor's lofty wave; To-morrow, leaves his titles for a grave, To-day, his beautious visage we extol; To-morrow, loathsome in the sight of all. To-day, he has delusive dreams of heaven;. To-morrow, cries too late to be forgiven. To-day, he lives in hopes as light as air; To-morrow, dies in anguish and despair.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR—continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR-continued. No one ever shed a tear for anything that Christ did. He went about continually doing good; and though he only lived thirty-three years in the world, his name will he remembered and blessed for ever, and the good that he did will last as long as the world itself, and throughout the endless ages of eternity. You see in, Caesar what men are by nature-selfish, revengeful, and proud; but yon have an example in Jesus Christ of what men ! ought to be, full of kindness, tenderness, forbearance, long-suffering, forgiveness, and mercy. When Caesar returned to Rome he mar ried his daughter to Pompey, who was the greatest man there, and had long ruled the whole city by means of his talents and power. Pompey was a much handsomer man than Caesar, and there was an air of princely dignity in his whole appearance which struck all per sons with awe when they approached him. He was very kind to Caesar, and got him clected one of the consuls ...
RAYS OF LIGHT. FAMILY AND CLOSET WORSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
RAYS OF LIGHT. FAMILY AND CLOSET WORSHIP. Punctuality in family worship is, of course, taken for granted in the case of all who call themselves Christians. Wherever His people have a house, God expects an altar. It is supposed, more over, that both morning and evening sacrifices are daily presented there ; and that this is done in the presence of children, servants, and visitors, without! exception. With less than this amount of service we can hardly presume to reckon ourselves among the families which call upon his name. In truth our piety, whatever may be its pretensions, is worth only as much as it appears to be in our domestic circle. Nay, its real character must be tested in a still narrower range. It is actually worth no more than it passes for-when we are alone with God. D. E. FORD.
