OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 10 October 1857
OUR MESSAGE. WE often think, dear readers, that very few of you suffer directly from the drinking customs of the colony. You all suffer indirectly you are willing to admit, but this you care little about; still, could we look into your homes, probably we should find traces of it in many home sorrows, of the existence of which we little suspect. But there are some houses, we know, where our JOURNAL visits, whose inmates have ever and anon to sup from the dregs of this bitter cup-homes that are made dreary, if not desolate, by this infatuating temptation : of the secret griefs, the blighted hopes, the heart sickenings, the feeling of contumely and shame, we know nothing. With them we sympathise, and for them we labour. Would that you who profess to be our friends would put us into a position to be more effective. If we tell you our minds, we would say we often keenly feel your indifference in withholding your influence in assisting us to extend our labours. If we studied our own feeli...

Sunshine. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 10 October 1857
WE closed our last notice of passing events with the eclipse. Since that time we have rejoiced in almost uninter rupted sunshine. Everyone exclaims, What glorious weather !* and we all welcome back our old friend the Sun, and are glad to see him looking so well, after his partial absence during the winter months, and the late season of terrible rains. This beautiful weather makes all nature look lovely, and * Since the above was written occasional .MioWers have slightly changed th« Droupact.-Ed j 13. II J. everything appears to rejoice, drinking in the sunshine. And it has its effect too, we are sure, on our own spirits. How much happier we feel, when we can take our walk on a fine day, than on,days when we are kept at home by rain, or, if obliged to go out, have to wade through the streets turned into gullies. Well, on one of the fine days, las week, we found ourselves, together with numbers more of the good citizens of Sydney, on the Circular Quay, waiting to see the 77fck Regimen...

"THE BURNISH FAMILY." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 10 October 1857
"THE BURNISH FAMILY." N interesting and instructive tale with the above title has been lately published by the " Scottish Temperance League," as the first of their prize temperance tales. We recommend all our readers to obtain a perusal of the book, and earnestly to mg,rh the important suggestions it contains. MABEL ALTERTON is one of the principal characters in the tale-in fact, she is th§ heroine-the consistent " water-drinker,"-ready and preferring to obtain her living by her own exertions, rather than be supported in comfort by the profit and sale of intoxicating drinks by her father, and refusing an advantageous offer of marriage rather than wed a noble-hearted suitor whose pecuniary position depended upon the manufacture of and traffic in intoxicating fluids. This heroine is introduced as a motherless girl at a Ladies' School, where she had been living for twelve years, never during that time visiting her father's house, though receiving visits from him, and fondly attached to...
Cloubs. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
Clffubs. WHO has not seen on a fine summer's day, suddenly the black clouds gather and spread themselves over the whole heavens, obscuring the sun's bright light and changing the beautiful blue 01 the sky into dark and murky black, making all nature cold and cheerless, the flower olose up as if to guard against the approaching storm, the birds fly to the shelter of the trees, and the beautiful butterfly that had just before sported its gay colours in the sun now finds some place to hide in. Just so have the clouds risen from the horizon and overspread our politi cal and social sky. In our last we spoke of the landing of the troops that had so gallantly fought for liberty and Old England in the Crimea. Well do we remember the day when the good news came that the Russians had submitted, and that the treaties of peace had been signed. Then we thought that peace, holy peace, had come once again to reign in the world, that our soldiers would return to their homes, to their dear wives, to...
THE RECENT FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
THE RECENT FLOODS. URINGr the terrific rush of water which lately overwhelmed bo large a portion of the Hunter district, the question was often put, " Where can the water come from?"' This question was started by thoughtful men who could hardly find, in twenty-four hours' rain, a cause for such devastating effects. Some were ready to say a water spout has broken on the mountains; others said the ocean must have burst in and flowed up some valley, which emptied itself on lower ground, and was again flowing out towards its source; others again fancied that as this land appears to be of volcanic origin, these floods were in some way connected with these hidden fires which had uplifted some large internal lake and emptied its contents. Each of these themes was supported by arguments and a reference to facts not altogether undeserving of notice. Those who talked of a water spout referred to the strange loud rushing noise which was so distinctly heard with the previous fall of heavy rain-...
Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
tnrg darker. ( Continued from page 319.j BEING unable to compose his mind either to write or to read, Henry walked into tlie spacious balcony in front of the house. The weather was very sultry, the wind had been blowing in hot puffs from the north-west: daring the day, but it was now quite calm ; tfc air was peculiarly dry, sulphurous, 8id oppressive, huge black clouds like nountainouSi waves were rapidly rolling over from the southward, discharging continuous streams of vivid lightning, while the peals of thunder boomed in rapid succession louder and louder as the storm approached nearer. In a short time the whole city was enveloped in a thick cloud of dust, furiously driven before the fierce southerly squall, commonly known in Sydney as a brickjielder. The roaring of the wind, added to the deafenino peals of thunder, the intensely vivid lightning, and the gigantic hailstones produced a scene of terrific grandeur, rarely exceeded in natural phenomena. Henry quailed before the tempe...
The Matal Gap: A TALE OF THE BUSH OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
Cjie Jafal (lap: r A TALE OF THE BUSH OF AUSTRALIA. NOT many weeks have rolled over our heads since the City of Sydney, and indeed the colony at large, was thrown into a state of mourning by the news of the loss of the Dunbar. That noble vessel having ridden in safety the 16,000 miles dividing us from our fatherland, to be cast at last (when at the very mouth of a haven of safety) on our ironbound coast, and every soul, save one, to find a sudden death, and most an ocean grave, on the shores of that land to which they had all looked so earnestly and with full expectations of happiness-alas! never to be realised -was truly a sorrowful event, an event which will cast a shadow over the happiness of many a home for many a year to come. But my story does not relate to the above tragical event, as most will at first expwt it doss from the title, as the place where the above calamity occurred was called the Gap, and has been so often spoken and written of since as the fatal Gap. Neither wa...

of lope pettmp. OPENING OF THE JUVENILE TEMPERANCE HALL. THIS neat and comfortable structure in Francis street Woolloomooloo, was opened with due ceremony on the evening of Monday, Oct. 12. After a most sumptuous and well arranged tea of which about 150 partook, the chair was taken by the Rev. Josiah Parker, a gentleman from Bathurst, who after introducing the subject of the evening in a speech of some length, called upon the treasurer to read a statement of the present financial position of the society, from which it appeared that it was still in debt to the amount of .£67 8s. incurred through the alterations. Able addresses were then delivered by the Rev. S. C. Kent, Rev. J. Sharpe and by Messrs. G. J. Crouch, T. Griffith, A. Howitt,J.Davis, and H. B. Lee.

Poetry. BRIGHTER HOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
BRIGHTER HOURS. Though dark the present time may seem With trials, care, and strife; Though Gladness may not shed her beam Upon our sky of life; Yet fear not, for amidst the gloom, One hope is ever ours, That joy may yet our lot illume, And bring us brighter hours. Fear not, but nobly struggle still, For others look to thee ; And they would cease to strive with ill, If you would conquered be. In darkest nights some star appears, In Winter's hand, some flowers; So shines for us, in adverse years, The hope of brighter hours! With fearless spirit, still press on, Act your allotted part; Life's high rewards were never won By faint and coward heart. Keep on your course and falter not, Though the dread tempest lowers ; But still, however sad your lot; Hope on for brighter hours. Cares may pain you, and doubts and fears Your trembling heart oppress ; But oh! look upward through your tears, Your God is near to bless! Een if Hope's earthly ray grows dim, A better light is ours, Which leads u...
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
PITT STREET. On the evening of the 14th instant, an amusing recitation composed by some of the youthful members of the society, entitled " The trial of John Bacchus," was given. The lawyer-like way in which the whole was arranged reflects great credit on the writers and reciters, the only respect in which some of them were deficient, was in voice " but unaccustomed as they were to public speaking" as Daniel O'Connell used to say, this perhaps is excusable, about 300 young people and their friends were present. The enter tainment was got up for the benefit of the " Juvenile Temperance Band " and the proceeds £5 were handed to the treasurer. The treasurer reports that the sum of &lt;£16 has been received from various sources, and spent in the pur chase of instruments comprising cornopean, piccolo, tuba, and three cjarionettes. The serjeant of the band of the 77th has kindly consented to instruct them in music, in place of the serjeant of the 11th, who is leaving with the regim...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. CLOSE OF NIGHT THE SEVENTH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
Cen itigjjts m a lar-loora. BY X. 8. ARTHUR. (Continued from paqo 334.) CLOSE OF NIGHT THE SEVENTH. , " WHERE is he ? Where is he ? Let ua find him. He knows where Green is, and he shall reveal the secret." I went to my room and laid down, for my head ached, when a sound reached my ears apparently in the room. I started up instantly and lis tened ; but my quickened pulses were now audible to my own sense, and obscured what was external. " It is only imagination," I said to myself. Still, I sat upright, listening. Satisfied, at length, that all was mere fancy, I laid myself back on the pillow, and tried to turn my thoughts iiway from the suggested idea that some one was in the room. Scarcely had I succeeded in this, when my heart gave a new impulse, as a sound like a movement fell upon my ears. " Mere fancy!" I said to myself, as some one went past the door at the moment. " My mind is over excited." Still I raised my head, supporting it with my hand, and iistened, directing my attent...
Selections. RECREATION SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 24 October 1857
'tltttions. RECREATION SOCIETY. .Birmingham has taken the lead in a new public institution. Some time back twenty-five working men clubbed their spending money to provide re gular recreation for themselves; they rented a place of meeting, the experi ment was successful, and within twelve months a " Public Recreation Society" sprung from it; and at the place where the Society carry on their operations as many as fifteen hundred people have attended at a penny per head, the ordinary attendance being five hundred. The receipts of the Society are £20 per week, and for this they provide chess, draughts, swings, electric apparatus, gymnastics, fencing and single stick, reading, &c &lt;fec. A band also performs, and choruses are sung by members of the society. The rooms are open from five to ten every day except Sunday, and the whole is conducted with per fect order, showing what working men may do for themselves if they will.
