The Holy Homes. CHAPTER VI. THE HOUSEKEEPER AND WILLIAM NORMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 9 October 1858
% folg fames. BY SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 318.) CHAPTER VI. THE HOUSEKEEPER AND WILLIAM NORMAN. IT was the middle of September. Mrs. Burn had been staying a week at Mr. Wroxeter's country house; now re turning, she invited William Norman to take tea with her, as she had brought home some country dainties, and wished to learn what he had been doing during her absence. So, as soon as Mr. Harlow was gone, and the offices closed, he went down-stairs into her neat little parlour. She was a charming, motherly old creature, quite a lady in her way, making the lad heartily welcome, by greatly sweetening his tea, and piling his plate with cake and fruit. Seeing him eat these dainties lingeringly, she bid him proceed, as there were more. " If you please," he said bashfully, " I would rather save them for Liddy than eat them. Because she's been in great trouble, and I should like to comfort her." "In trouble," asked Mrs. Burn, "in what way ? she -is yet a little girl." " She's grown a g...
GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 9 October 1858
GOULBURN. On the 30th ultimo, a most interesting meeting of this society was held. The chair was taken by Mr. R. Craig. Two prizes, one a gold and the other a silver pencil case, were awarded for the two best essays on " The most effectual means to suppress Drunkenness." The prizes were carried oflf by the two Messrs. Craig. Mr. Jeremiah Williams read the essays aloud, previous to the writers' names being known: they elicited much commendation. The Rev. William Ross, who presented the prizes to the successful awnpetitors, then commenced his lecture, | as announced, on "The Motions of the Planets," illustrated by an orrery. At the close, a vote of thanks to Mr. Rosa for his interesting lecture, and for the interest he had taken in the Goulburn Band of Hope, in awarding prizes, was carried by acclamation. Several new members joined the society. We under stand that the 24th instant will be the anniversary, when the usual picnic will take place in some convenient spot near the town.

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 9 October 1858
MELBOURNE. The WESLEY CHURCH Band of Hope is now in active operation, and from the known energy of those gentlemen who have the immediate management of it, we augur great and happy results. The meetings (which are held every Friday evening) are opened with prayer and singing from tho Sunday school collection of hymns, and afterwards addresses are delivered to the children to fill up the hour allotted for the meetings, which are closed by invoking Graft's blessing on the undertaking. We heartily wish it God speed, and we rejoice to see the God honouring cause of total abstinence is being supported so warmly by our Wesleyan friends generally.

'duliotts. IF you want a favour of a married woman, praise her baby. WOMEN, SO amiable in themselves, are never so amiable as when they are useful; and as for beauty, though men may fall in love with girls nbplay, there is nothing to make them stand to their love like seeing them at work. IMPORTANCE OF A NEWSPAPER.-" My son, bevare ov vimmin wot reads no noos paper. Your father married von as read none, and you're the sad konsikens; your'e as hignorant as a 'orse. SOME Latin epigrammatist gives it for a reason why Nature has not furnished women with beards-" that they could not hold their tongues long enough to be shaved!" A SURE SIGN.-When you see a gentle man at midnight, sitting on the step in front of his house, combing his hair with the door scraper, you may conclude he has been to an evening party. BASHFULNESS is merely a matter of position. Ladies who object to be kissed under the misletoe, show no such reluc tance to be kissed under the rose. YOUNG AMERICA. - "John," said a ...
Poetry. HAVELOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
||ottr¡j. HAVELOCK. Great Havelock needs no praises trimly turn'd, To mar or make the glory he has earn'd ; The love of England is a nobler prize, Than senates can decree or kings devise. And England's grief a statelier monu- ment. Than wealth can build or heraldry invent. Yes, Albion lov'd the hero, for she felt, That in his soul true English virtue dwelt ; Steadfast, yet ardent, prompt, but wary, brave, To heights of daring, yet not daring's slave, Dauntless in danger, hopeful 'mid despair, Pious as valiant, ne'er neglecting pray'r ; Alike in peace and war one path he trod, His law was duty and his guide was God. Through arduous struggles, and with toils severe, His friendless virtues ploughed their slow career ; He could not match in purse the carpet lords. Of purchased epaulettes and baubb swords. Mind, not wealth, when manhood's prime was past. Raised the born leader to command at last, And with command came glory-Why recall, The deeds that dwell within the minds of all! We all...

The Holy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
BY SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 335. ) WHEN William entered the sitting room, his father, who was seated at the table making some little drawing or plan for his work on the morrow, turned and looked sternly at him, for the hour was beyond that on which the boy usually returned. But when an explanatory word gave him to understand that he had been taking tea with Mrs. Burn, and he saw the present brought home for his darling, his anger passed away, and for the next few minutes he sat leaning back in his chair, watching with delight his beautiful child unpack the basket and divide its treasures. " These are for you, father," she said coming towards him, with a piece of the cake and the richest plums, and express- ing; by her hesitating step and drooping head, still remembered penitence for her childish faults. These given, she took the same portion to her mother, who, far from well, lay on the sofa, and then gave a share to each of the boys. After this she fetched some plates from t...
TOTAL DECREASE IN THREE YEARS, 2,159,253 GALLONS! [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
TOTAL DECREASE IN THREE ¡ YEARS, 2,159,253 GALLONS! It has beén demonstrated lately that the people of Scotland have drunk less by two millions of gallons of all kinds of spirits, during the three years' operation of the Forbes Mackenzie Act for closing the public-houses on the entire Lord's day and restricting the hours of sale on other days, than they did during the three years immediately preceding tho period when the Act came into force. Behold the blessed effects of even a partial prohibition ! The Act has worked a wonderful change wherever it has been thoroughly enforced ; and we strongly Advise all our Scotch readers to do all in their power to see that it is enforced, and »Iso to support it when assailed by the publicans ; and besides, exert themselves to the Utmost, at the ensuing licensing ieasou, to prevent fresh licenses being granted and also the renewal of all they possibly can. - The fewer the better, for they form our country's deadliest bane. -British Messenger.

CO-OPERATION OF THE WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
CO-OPERATION OP THE WIFE* There is much good sense and truth in the remark, of a modern author, that no man ever prospered in the world without the co-operation of his wife. If she unites in mutual endeavours, or rewards his labours with an endearing smile, with What confidence will he resort to his merchandise or his farm, fly over lands, Bail upon tlie seas, meet difficulty or en- counter danger, if he knows he is not spending his strength in vain, but that his labour will be rewarded by the sweets ot hamel
Selections. NEVER BE HAUGHTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
NEVER BE HAUGHTY. | A humming bird met a butterfly, and | being pleased with the beauty of its person and glory of its wings, made an offer of perpetual friendship. " I cannot think of it," was the reply, " as you once spurned me, and called me a drawling dolt."-" Impossible ! " exclaimed the humming bird. "I always entertained the highest respect for such beaut iful crea- j tures as you."-" Perhaps you do now," said the other, " but when you insulted j me I was a caterpillar. So let me prive you a piece of advice-never insult*the numble, as they may some day become your superiors."
