Before I answer this question, let me caution yon against beginning to write too soon-do not be ia any burry to be gin tee writing part of the process, stay till the matter is. thoroughly prepared in your mind.

THE CHURCH AND The Temperance Cause. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 19 July 1856
THE CHURCH AND The Temperance Canse. \Â M HE religious principle, whether right or wrong, is th e most power ful of all th« principles of action. He that controls that, controls the man. It can hardly be necessary to illustrate tins. The priest in^this world has heen everywhere a man of power, if men were willing to confide to him the control of the religious principle. The ambitious statesman has always sought to obtain control of this for the accomplishment of his purposes, and the demagogue has done the same. The office of Pontifex Maximus was an object of ambition to Cdnsuls and Emperors, and one of the first acts of Napoleon when he came to power, was to give to France a religion ; one of the things which he did with greater reluctance than perhaps any other of his life, was to restore the Pope from being a captive under his control, to the Vatican. The Augurs and Fla mens were the real depositaries of pow er in ancient Rome. The tremendous power of the Jesuit everywhere has co...

ÎHE DRUNKARD'S REMORSE BY PR0FE8S0B LONGFELLOW. PM thinking on thy smile, Mary Thy bright and trusting smile In the morning of our youth and lore, Ere sorrow came or guile ; "When thine arms were twin'd about my neck And mine eyes look'd into thine, And the heart that thvobb'd for me alone Was nestüag close to mine. * Tm thinking on that night, Mary, The night of grief and shame, When, with drunken ravings on my Ups, To thee I homeward came ; O, the tear was in thy earnest eye> And thy bosom wildly neared, Yet a smile of love was on thy cheek,. Though thy heart was sorely grieved*. O, my wolds were harsh to. thee, Mary I For the wine-cap drove me wild ; I And I chid thee when thy eyes were sad* And CUMVI 'thee when they smiled ; ©od kmwsJ InVd thee even then, Bat the fij? was m my brain, And the curse»of drink waa m my hearty To make my love a bane.

Kindness and Conscience. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 19 July 1856
Kindness , and Conscience. THE Story of the robber who left his victim a few shillings in his pocket to pay for his bed' and board at the next inn, forcibly presents itself to ones mind when reading some of the speeches"made at the Licensed Victuallers Society's dinner a week or two since. The noble objects the Society has in view cannot be too highly- commended, but when it is considered how much evil the trade produces, the blood-curdling horrors that spring directly from its traffic,, and the unmitigated woes of its deluded vo taries, it is enough to make one sicken at its charities, and turn pale when it : assumes the character of Samaritan. Perpaps, as the Sydney Morning He raid expressed it m one of its leaders a short time since, that it is unjust xo charge the Publican with all the evils attendant on intemperance. Still justice and conscience tortured a confession from two of the gentlemen | taking part on the occasion, representa tives of the people, that intemperance | wit...

BT "DWSmr MTLLB».* WATER, and its Advantages to Mankind. The advantages of water to mankind are Very numerous, so much so, that it enters int« the composition of nearly everything aronnd us. I shall therefore attempt to explain some few of its advantages, and for that purpose, divide the subject into four parts. First,-Wat« is advantageous to man as a drink. Secdrtd,*^Water is advantageous for ctdí nary purposes. Third,-Water is advantageous aaa mfttive power,- and Fourth,-Water is advantageous as a read or highway. » First, then. Water as a drink. If we reft* to the period when mm was created, we shall find that God gave man «very herb to eat, and also that there were rivers of water in Eden, te quench the thirst of ear tret parents, and give life to the her bage, and support te the «attie.

Battle with a Snake. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 19 July 1856
Battle with a Snake. A recent number of the Liberia He rald records the following feat between a native of the coast and a mammoth snake : " Not long since, some half-dozen of the Congoes brought here in the 'Pons,' while engaged in clearing away brush on a farm at Bushrod Island, started an enormous snake» As if apprised of the Congo predilection for snake meat, his snakeship went off at full speed for the covert of his house, but the Congoes, as determined to have him as he was to get away, raised a deafening yell and started in chase. The snake went in the ¿irec* tion of the house, in the vicinity of which there was a large bug-a-bug hill, which had been long abandoned by its builders. The snake reached this mound, and had succeeded in getting one half its length into a hole in its side, when one of the Congoes, to whose feet, hunger and hope, and desire for a delicious repast, had given wings, reached the place. " Quick as lightning the Congo seized him by the tail, and a severe...
THE VISION OF THE REVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 19 July 1856
-w THE VISION OF THE REVELLER; BT GEORGE SOAKEL. Come, till my glass again, old friend, and pr'ythee leave off preaching ; I never yet could find the «age who'd follow his own teaching. By heav'ns it makes my blood run wild, while rings the very rafter, To see the flashing eyes around, and hear their shouts of laughter. / Butwhát is this?--Tht song grows dull, rouse np, and let's be jolly : Your wisdom, when all's said and done, I'll swear's the greatest folly. h ! darter, dimmer, grow the lights, and all around is reeling ; My eyelids sink, and spite of mej this sleep is o'er me stealing. But no ! I do not dream-right well I know your face, God Bacchus ; pleasant friend are you when pains of mind or body rack us. ' y, ay," he said, or seemed to say, "I'm all that yon pronounce me, Though soulless things with crabbed looks and words denounce me." Then rouad him press'd an eager throng,- j the wretch for consolation, The brutal herd for love of drink, the bard for inspiration ; The g...

This business had taken her the full afternoon, and evening bad now closed in, somewhat early to be sure, for the day had been cold and rainy, when on going the distance of a . few streets, to the stationer's shop where she had dealt, to order her usual weekly newspaper to be forwarded to her whilst in Devonshire, her way along the pave ment was suddenly stopped by a crowd gathered round a glaring gin shop of unusual splendour.

Mrs. Roseby was first ealled upon to address the meeting. 1 regret that the best part of her speech was lost to me, being anxiously hoping^that her courage would not fail. She stood up in her i Master's name, und His name was a strong tower, and she did not lose heart« She related her own experience as a total abstainer for twenty years. About twenty-five years ago she signed the old moderation pledge; she did not think this sufficient to overcome the great evil, and therefore became a pledged tee-totaller. The old moderation society began too high. Some of t...
