Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. NIGHT THE SEVENTH. SOWING THE WIND. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 26 September 1857
Cm figjts in a ( Continued from page 301J NIGHT THE SEVENTH. SOWING THE WIND. Thb state of affairs in Cedarville, it was plain, from the partial glimpses I had received, "was rather desperate. Desperate, I mean,, as regarded the various parties brought before my ob servation. An eating cancer was on I the community, and so far as the eye could mark its destructive progress * the ravages were fearful. That its roots were striking deep, and penetrating, concealed from view, in many un suspected directions, there could be no doubt. What appeared on the sur face was but a milder form of the disease, compared with its hidden, more vital, and more dangerous ad vances. I could not but feel a strong interest in some of these parties. The case of young Hammond had from the first awakened concern . and now a new element was added in the unlooked-for appearance of his mother on the stage, in -a state that seemed one of partial derangement. The gentleman at whose office I had met Mr. Harrison o...

THE WOVEN SUNBEAMS. A little child, with, golden locks, Danced on net father's knee ; " Father," said she, " from all thy flocks, The fairest give to me." The fairest lamb the father had, . He singled from his iold : Well pleased that father was and glad, That lamb had ne'er een sold. The father's neck, with tight-clasped hands, His child embracing held; "Father," said she, ' of all tliy lands, I want the fairest field." He sought that field in all his ground, Where richest crops were grown; And when the favoured spot he found, He told her, 'twas her own. The little maid mysteriously Gazed in her father's face, " The ripest flowers, I want," said she, " YVhicn. grow in this fine place." The father soon fulfilled his task. He spared not even one, Whate'er the maiden chose to ask, Ungrudgingly was done. Thus rich, the child in joyous play Passed all the sunny hours, Crowning the lambs with garlands gay, Or sleeping on her flowers. While sleeping on her rosy bed, She saw, amid her drea...

Poor Smmp. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 26 September 1857
loot- Wanting. " WHAT is the matter, my poor boy ?" kindly asked a gentleman of a little dirty ragged boy, about nine years of age, who was standing in one of the streets of a town on the Hunter River, crying as though his heart would burst. "Mother's drunk again, and the constables have taken her to the lock up," replied the boy, sobbing bitterly. " Where is your father ?" asked the gentleman. " He's in Maitland gaol," sobbed the boy. " Where do you live ?" " In that hut yonder in the bush." " Have you any food in it ?" "No, sir." The gentleman gave the boy a ?hilling to buy himself some food, and went away for the purpose of enlisting the sympathies of some of the neighbours in the poor boy's behalf, in which he happily succeeded a poor but kind-hearted woman offering to take care of him, until his parents came out of gaol. Upon searching for the boy, the gentleman was informed that he had been seen, going towards the lock-up, with x loaf under his arm ; and upon inquiry there, th...
Henry Gardner. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 26 September 1857
ifttrg darker. (Continued from pagt 278.) CELAFESB IIL Wh must now return to Henry wh#re we left him at the close of our first chapter. He retired to his room, fastened the door and window, and after peeping into every corner and under the bed with a sort of undefinable apprehension, he hurriedly took off his clothes and flung himself into bed, leaving the candle burning on his toilet-table. He covered his head with the bed clothes and tried to pray, but his head reeled and his mind was so confused that he could recollect but small por tions of the Church prayers which he once knew by heart-and which he fancied were the only medium of ap proach to God-so he derived little or no comfort from the exercise. But we will avoid the details of that long dreary night, the most miserable Henry had ever spent. The sudden cessation of his accustomed excessive nightly draught, banished sleep and produced a slight attack of dilirium tremens. He was quite conscious of the cause of his sufferings ...
NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 10 October 1857
NEWCASTLE. THE following extract from a letter, from the Rev. John Gibson of | Newcastle, shows pleasing progress in that town: "We have recently opened our large school-room under the congregational church, for a Working Man's Institute, and which already numbers more than 70 members. We have a library, several British and Colonial newspapers andperiodicals, and fortnightly lectures. This infant institution is greatly pros pering, and it will prevent many men frequenting houses where only the lower appetites are gratified, and where they spend their health, money, and time, for that which is not bread. You will be glad to hear that the BAND OF HOPS JOURNAL, is read in the above room."

Poetry. A VICTIM. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 10 October 1857
IMni. VICTIM. " On! mother, do come here and see Those cold and bleeding feet, Pattering along so painfully The wet and frozen street. " 'And see his little rounded limbs Are blue and red with cold ; His head without a covering His garments torn and old. " I see the spots of biting sleet Upon his curly head, The tears are frozen on his cheek, That he this moment shed. " Oh! mother, has this little child . Been doing any wrong ? That he should in this weather wild Be tottering along. " By teacher I was taught to pray-. ' Oh! Jestis, meek1 and mild, . With love and great compassion look Upon a little child'. There, there! Oh, mother, now he's past Down that dark, narrow lane, And th' moment when I saw him last He was tott'ring the same." " Come, leave the window n$w, my son, And sit here at my feet, Ana I'll tell you of that poor child, Yon've just seen in the street. " There many are such little ones In dwellings dark and foul, Where curses are their lallabies With scream and drunken...

Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. CONTINUATION OF NIGHT SEVENTH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 10 October 1857
&ra Itigjjts in a ffov-|laaitt. BY T. S. ARTHUR. CONTINUATION OF NIGHT SEVENTH. " HAVE you noticed Mr. Green about this morning ?" I asked. " He hasn't come down from his room yet," she replied. " Are you certain ?" said my com panion. " I knocked several times at the door just now, "but received no answer." What do you want with him?" asked Mrs. Slade, fixing her eyes upon us." "We are in search of Willy Hammond ; and it has been suggested that he is with Green." " Knock twice lightly, and then three times more firmly," said Mrs. Slade; and as she spoke, she glided past us with noiseless tread. " Shall we go up together ?" I did not object, for, although I had no delegated right of intrusion, my feelings were so much excited in the case, that I went forward, scarcely reflecting on the propriety of so doing. The signal knock found instant answer. The door was softly opened, and the unshaven face of Simon Slade presented itself. " Mr. Jacobs!" he said, with surprise in his to...
