TEMPERANCE ITEMS. THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
TEMPERANCE ITEMS. » ? ~-r THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL AT HOME. The Secretary of the Ipswich Society writes :-The Ipswich press and puplic opinion have stamped the grand Temper ance gala. held on the 13th inst., amidst the charming scenes of Sir Fitzroy Kelly's beautiful estate as a great success. From seven to eight thousand persons gave wondrous animation to the sylvan shades: the lovely walks and picturesque grounds of the Chauntry, the effect of which was heightened by numerous tents for public accommodation, studded with mottoes indicative of Temperance and progress: at a short distance from and immediately in front of which was a convenient covered and decorated platform, from which the assembled thousands were ad dressed by the world-renowned champion of Temperance, J. B. Gough. He held his audience spellbound to the last, and finished midst applause which woke the echo of the silent woods. Sir Fitzroy Kelly, iM.

A LOVED ONE'S DEATH BED. 'O Death where is thy sting; O grave where is thy victory,' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
LOVED ONE'S DEATH BED. 4 O Death where is thy sting; 0 grave where is thy victory,' The wind in fitful gust did sadly moan, But everything looked drear and lone, As near the dying couch of her he loved; A youth did stand : his lips were moved In silent prayer, to that Almighty One, Who rules o'er life and death, and none Can stand, if once in awful majesty he rises up, And puts into our hands that bitter cup. Which all must drink; oh! spare her life he cried. High School, West Maitland. August 9th, 1859 The cry was vain, her hour was come-she died Now mark the bitter scalding tear as from The eye of manhood it doth burning come: Sure 'twas a deep, a pure, a bold love, That burned within his breast, when it could move As with an earthquake shock his very soul, And bowed down every faculty to its control. ExesLsioR.
VOCAL HARMONIC SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
VOCAL HARMONIC SOCIETY. We were much pleased at perceiving so numer ous and brilliant assemblage attending the concert on the 15th instant. Selections from the Oratorio of ' Judus Maccabseus' formed the subject of entertainment for the evening. The correctness and precision with which the concerted pieces were rendered, was highly gratifying. Mrs. S. John Adcock was in excellent voice," and sang with her usual good taste. Miss Brady's full rich notes rang through the Hall with delightful effect; cultivation will render her a first class singer. Several lady aud gentlemen Amateurs took part on the occasion in solos and duets; in many of these instances, although the exquisite notes of Handle were correctly given, much want of fee ing characterized their execu tion. The subjects were not treated with the enthusiasm they require, to give them due effect;-time, however, will cure this defect. This Society is rapidly advancing, and it is grati fying to perceive how greatly the love of mu...
YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION BAZAAR. A grand Bazaar and Fancy Fair, in connection with this Association, was held in the Hall of Temperance, Pitt Street, on Monday, 19tli iust., and three following days. The stalls were furnish ed most elegantly with fancy goods of every kind, and the fair saleswomen in attendance pressed their wares upon the visitors with the most modest grace, and enchanted them into buying £240 the first day, £220 the second, and £220 the third; the fourth weare not able to report. About £40 each day was taken at the door, a post office was in full oppei ation : the postmistress' receipts for the three days amounted to about £12 we believe. A printing press was also at work in the Bazaar during the evenings. A band of fourteen per formers, conducted by Herr Ziems, was in attend ance each day. The stalls, their attendants, the music, the delightful weather, and the fashionable company, made the fairy-lite scene complete. About 1200 visitors were present each ...
CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
CHAPTER Atlast Tesolviaar forward still to fare, Till that some way they find, or in or out That path they look which beaten seemed most bare, And like to lead the labyrinth about. THE FABRY QUEENE. ' I have staid too long for my own happiness,' thought St. Quentin; 'too long, if I am to forego the hope of contri buting to hers.' Thus be pondered throughout the morning: towards noon the real object of his mission resumed it's wonted place in his thoughts, but a Tjrilliant sunset recalled the last evening spent at Breeza, and he fell into a dreamy mood, very imprudent for a stranger travelling with some vague hope of finding a supper and a bed in the bush of Australia. Following implicitly, as he thought, the direction he had received, he entered one of those impracticable scrubs, dread ed and avoided in all Australian travell ing. An unlimited I number of acres covered with an old quickset hedge, not absolutely impervious, but to be penetra ed only with danger and discomfort, such s...
PUBLIC DRINKING FOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
PUBLIC DRINKING FOUNTAINS. Sir,-During my late visit to London no sight delighted me half so much as the drinking fountain at the top of Snow-hill. I cannot express the pleasure it gave me to stand and watch the poor as they drank of that pure water which is an emblem of * the water of life.' Move ments are in progress to raise drinking fountains all over London : a meeting was held in St. Giles's the other evening, when £14 was subscribed for the purpose. A proposal has been made to erect drink i insr fountains in memory of the late Joseph Sturge, Esq. -Extractjaf letter.
WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
WATER. Sweetest and purest of all created fluids, How I love the sight of thee and thine ! In all thy forms some joy attends thy presence. Art thou the ocean? How dost thou remind us Of thy Maker's power, And set us mortals musing on the Omnipotence of the Infinite! Art thou disturbed! How grand 1 At rest? How beautiful! Art thou a river ! At thy sight our minds revert to time still rolling on And on, and on, to vast Eternity. A brooklet! then we think of childhood's joyous ways: Sportless, heedless, gay, disdaining check or hindrance, Forgetting, while enjoying, the scenes through which it passes. A Lake ? disturbed by winter winds, or calm at rest, Beneath a summer sun thou heaven reflecting element I love to gaze on thee, to bathe me in thy liquid heaven; Then refresh my soul, my drooping: spirits cheer With a sweet draught lifted from thy fair bosom. Depart! Depart! ye curses of my race, ye vile usurpers, How dare ye intrude your loathsome presence In the same "world, with this ...

COLONIAL NEWS. The Cowper Ministry are again in office, it h,aving been found difficult to form another at present-A list of sub scriptions is now opened in Sydney for the Adelaide Admella Relief Fund. The object is to reward those to whom the survivors are indebted for their lives, and to assist those who are left widows and orphans by the sad catastrophe The mail steam ship Bombay cleared the Sydney Heads on the 14th inst., with the mails for England, via Suez.

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
THE HOLY HOMES*. BY SILVERPEU. (Continued from page 379.) FREQUENTLY Joe found some little homely delicacy, such as had decked their rustic table in happier days, placed ready for h;im, but the thing was rather a bitter than a sweet, and smote him to the soul. Sometimes Kelly would not appear for several days, this probably when her drunken fit was upon her, and Joe would miss his bright fire and tidy room, and be filled with anxious thoughts about her, but as she had moved her lodging, and kept it's whereabouts secret, as well as the places where she had char-work, he was necessitated to be content. When she re-appeared, penitence would seem to be expressed by the added signs about the room of diligence Still Joe was obtuse to the real truth, j He would not have been so, could he! have only guessed how sublime woman ; often is in her low estate f Sin is nega-1 tived, the stain washed, by redemption whose worth none but God can know. Sometimes his distress was so extreme that he cou...
TEMPERANCE BAZAAR IN BIRMINGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
TEMPERANCE BAZAAR IN BIRMINGHAM. A bazaar and fancy fair, in aid of tho funds for removing the debt on the Tem perance Hall, was opened at the Town Hall on Wednesday, June 15,and continu ed during the week. At 12 o'clock the i inauguration took place, when a goodly number of the friends of the Temperance cause, headed by the Mayor, Sir John Rat cliff, assembled in the organ-gallery, for the purpose of taking part in the cere mony. His worship having taken the | chair, Mr. W. Tweedie, of the National Temperance League, read an opening ad dress, in which the history of the move ment for the erection of the new hall was traced. Its necessity was forced upon the committee by the inabilityof the building in Ann-street to hold all who came to the meetings of the society: and having re alised £-5">0 by the bazaar held two years ago, and £-508 by subscriptions given at a public breakfast, the building was ulti mately ei*ected at the cost of £2,500. If it were now freed from debt the inco...

Cjjt Australian Jjoru Compnfon, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. . THE tfEW P0STMAN-E LETRICIITY. WHAT may be the medium of communication between spirits, it is difficult to decide: but as they have none of our grosser nature, we may be certain that their exchange of ideas must be rapid : they appear to have some senses like our own, seeing and hearing ;-*?whether to these may be added the power of discerning thought, and thus at every new creation of idea having .an instinctive knowledge of what is passing, is a question rather suggested than actually revealed. The rapidity of communication has been argued by divines from Daniel, nineteenth chapter, when the angel Gabriel is represented as ' flying swiftly,' or in a state of exhaustion, having received the command at the beginning of DaniePs supplications to come forth, 4 swift as lightningtherefore this mighty spirit received the command, and executed the commission; he touched Daniel while he Was still praying. Many allusions are thus m...
SUPPRESSION OF TEMPERANCE IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
SUPPRESSION OF TEMPERANCE IN RUSSIA. We have just received a curious circu lar, published by the head Russian of ficials in Lithuania. It is aimed at the worthy endeavour of the Catholic clergy to lead away our poor people from that drunkenness which is even a greater misfortune than serfdom it.self. We are anxious to seethe answer which Le Nord will make to these observations, which, for its benefit, we reproduce in the original language. * Circular to the officials in town and country. Commission of internal affairs, first department of the chancellery of the Civil Governor of Wilno, March, 18/>9.

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
CHAPTER Not ill scorn do I reprove thee, Not in pride thy vows I waive, But, believe, I could not love" thee, Wert thou a prince and I a slave. * » . * « Can I love ? Oh, deeply-truly Warmly-fondly-but not thee ! Olave sought the drawing-room, and the old lady stood at the top of the stairs and listened anxiously; old ladies will do such things, you know, gentle reader. There was a lulling sound of voices, a silence, and a murmuring again, and then the drawing-room door new open, and Mr. Weston trod hastily through the hall, mounted his horse, and rode furiously homeward. Then Olave came out, and the old lady retreated to her own room, but not before she had seen that the girl's cheek was flushed, her eye tearful, and her elastic step more tardy than usual. Mrs. Glenstone figeted about for awhile, but the true woman's heart was working within her, and pre sently she sought Olave's chamber. She entered, and found her kneeling. Long she stood there and watched the slight form tremblin...
KATE STAFFORD. CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
KATE STAFFORD. CHAPTER VIII. I do not love theeno, I do not love thee; And yet when thou art absent, I am sad. Mas. MERTON. A LETTEE from home is delightful in its way, but to be actually speaking to a person fresh from home; to have questions answered and doubts solved; to find that those whom you have left are as you always thought them, wisest, dearest, best, - that is indeed delightful. St. Quentin told Kate that he had several times met Mrs. Emerson at her uncle's, and that she looked well and happy; she liked the country, took interest in the people, had found pleasant society at Elmsley Manor. Kate knew all this, but she liked to hear it again. ' But you have not asked about Mr. Stafford's new furnishing his drawing room.' Kate answered with something between a laugh and a cry. Mr. Stafford had always promised his nieces that the old library should be refurnished, and called a drawing-room. ' Oh, I wcftild not hear of it on any account; the dear old library-but I am not a bit...
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859
CHAPTER Proud of you, fond of you, haying all right in you, Quitting all else through my love and delight in you! Glad is my heart now 'tis beating so nigh to you ! Light is my step for it always may fly to you! Clasped in your arms where no sorrow can reach to me, Beading your eyes till new love they shalt teach to me, Though wild and weak till now, By that blest marriage vow. More than the wisest know, your heart shall preach tome. Next day Olave wandered pensively forth to take a farewell for a time of her much-loved home. She kept within the bounds of home, at least her footsteps did, but her eyes wandered away to the pretty little cottage on the hill, and I fancy her heart followed after them-I -wonder why. What interest could Olave find in the parsonage that she watched it so intently ? Perhaps she was think ing that when she came back there would be new faces there, and among them she might find her soul's ideal-perhaps. Or, more likely, she was thinking of her little golden-...
