TO THE YOUTHS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 July 1856
TO TEE YOUTHS Who have written Essays on Water, for the Prize lately offered in the Band of Hope Review. DEAR YOUNG FRIENDS, I have within these few davs read once and again the essays which ou have written, on Water and its ad anrages to mankind. I have also ssisted in awarding the prize to the ?writer of what is considered, upon the whole, the best essay submitted to us. While engaged in this labour of love, there occurred to me some thoughts which I resolved to reduce to writing, and to get printed in the Review. All the essays were marked by rather serious imperfections. And this is not to be wondered at, considering the years and educational disadvantages of the writers. In s>me of the essay we found the spelling very incorrect. I have sometimes heard offenders blame the pen io such cases, declaring that the pen would not spell coriectly. I can not conscienciously adopt this view. I believe the pen should be made to spell aright, and that the writer alone is to be held respo...
BEAR AND FORBEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 July 1856
BEAR AND FORBEAR. Oh ! bear ye with the world, though it Perchance may use thee ill, Perhaps it's blame's been well deserved, Oh ! therefore, peace, be still. Oh ! bear ye with the scoffing ones, Whose uvea are nearly o'er Speak softly, kindly, to them now, They will return no more. Oh? bear ye with the taunting ones, Though fierce their malice burn, By calmly giving kindnei.s back, Their hearts may haply turii. And oh ! forbear to bruise the reed, Nigh broken to the ground ; Lest in thine hour of sorest need, i^o mercy should be found. Forbear to quench tha smallest spark, Of pity, or of lore ; Such emanations are from heaven, The gift of God above, Forbear to wound the mourning ones, Whose lives have been so dreer, 'Twere better far to succour them, To pity and forbear. Forbear to tread the giddy maize Of dissipation's throng; Lest thou shouldst perish neath its bla»ze Of fascination strong. Forbear to quaff the tempting cup, Though nectar to thy lips ; Such joys are earthly-grove...

THE HOUSE FULL OF WINE. A GAT little fly, on a bright summer's morn, Went buzzing about 'mid the clover and corn, Till buzzed out of breath he sat down on a flower, And thought he would just take a nap for an hour. A spider, who'd built up a dwelling close by, Just wanting a morsel to make up a pie, Looking out efhis window, delightfully sees, This fat little fly coolly taking his ease. So he let himself down with his pulley and thread* Till he came to a leaf that was over his head, And speaking as kindly as ever He oould, Began to persuade him he'd come for his good. ' My dear little fly,' said the spider above, I've a house full of wine and a heart full of love, You're wcleome to both and I've just come to say, How glad I shall be of a visit to-day. I fear you'll take cold from the damp of this flower, There's room in my house, snd I dine in an hour. Take hold of my arm-you have nothing to fear, I'll give you the best both of welcome and cheer.' So the poor little fly, with a nod ...

In this instance he was tempted to practise k base cheat upon the poo% Indians. He persuaded them that gunpowder was a seed, which would grow like millet when sbwd on the ground. They cofi pequently sowed all that they had, and bought more from him, for which they gave him skins and furs. The Indians placed a guard to protect the field from wild beasts, and went from time to time to see if the powder was growing.

&lt;00 Matty and Mabel; or Who is Rich?-Who is Poor? THERI, PUSS ! said little Matty, you may have my dinner if you want it. I'm tired ot bread and milk. I'm tired of this old broom house. I'm tired of that ol& barn with its res! saves, I'm tired of the garden, i%ith its rows of lilacs, its sunflowers, and its beds of catnip aud pennyroyal. I'm tired of the old well, with its pole balancing in the air. I'm tired of the meadow where the cows feed, and the hens are always picking up grasshoppers. I wish I was a grasshopper! I'm not happy. I'm tired of this brown stuff dress, and these thick leather shoes, and my old sun bonnet. There comes a nice car riage,-how smooth and shiny the horses are; how bright the silver mounted harness glitters; how smart the coachman looks, in his white gloves. How nice it must be to be rich, and ride in a carriage ! Oh, there's alitfclo girl in it no bigger than I, all alone, too, -a RICH little girl, with a rose-coloured bonnet and a sil...
THE DRUNKARD'S HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 5 July 1856
THE DRUNKARD'S HOME. BY REY. GEORGE MACKIE. HERE is music in the word Home-it is the most attractive of all places upon the earth's surface. Home is home still, ~be it ever so homely. There may be very little there of the ease and elegance which wealth can always command; and the fare at home may be of the very hum blest description; a frail tenement it may be, and poorly furnished; there may .be no large and airy rooms, and no soft well-swept carpet for little feet to tread upon, and no rich dishes to .tempt a sickly palate-no matter, it U home still. It is there my fond father and mother dwell; it is the residence of my brothers and sisters ; it is there we were all born, and there a food mo ther's affection was lavished upon us ; and there, too, a pious tather every night and morning gathered us around his knees; and Oh, how many, many, quiet, happy,- Sabbath evenings have we seen ift that hom«k It: was there that the big I^ble, was 'spread before us, and it&lt;life lijce...
