PET PERENNIALS.—No. I. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 September 1859

PET PERENNIALS. — NO. I. BY PATTY PARSLEY. CHAPTER I. Farewell to the mountain, Farewell to the dell, The flower and the fountain; Bright spot in the wild wood Dear home of my childhood, Farewell — oh, farewell! OLAVE LYSTOR sat silently gazing from   her chamber window. What ailed the maiden, I wonder, that she who was the very spirit of joy and mirth, should sit alone in the moonlight while ringing peals of laughter floated up from below. Her dark gleaming eyes shone brighter even than usual, for they were shining through tears; her rosy cheeks were rosier with excitement ; the rings of soft dark hair floated back with the night breeze, and the full pouting lips quiver- ed with suppressed utterance, and the lovely Olave Lystor appeared beneath the moon's soft light, and with the gloamings of feeling reflected upon her features, like a being of a more beautiful world. But, again what ailed the maiden? Truth to say, gentle reader, her's is a sad tale to tell, but have p...

HINTS FOR HOMES. HUSBAND AND WIFE. HINTS FOR WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

HINTS FOR HOMES. HUSBAND AND WIFE. HINTS FOB WIVES. NEVER complain that your husband pores too much over the newspaper, to the exclusion of that pleasing converse ?which you formerly enjoyed with him. Don't hide the paper; don't give it to the children to tear; don't be sulky when the boy leaves it at the door ; but take it in pleasantly, and lay it beforg your spouse. Think what man would be without a newspaper; treat it as a great agent in the work of civilisation, which it assuredly is; and think bow much good newspapers have done by exposing bad husbands and bad wives, by giving their errors to the eye of the public. But manage you in this way : when your husband is absent, instead of gossiping with neighbours, or looking into shop windows, sit down quietly, and look over that paper ; run your eye over its home and foreign news; glance rapidly at the accidents and casualties; carefully scan the leading articles; and at teatime, when your husband takes up the paper, say, ' My dea...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ANECDOTES OF JULIUS. CAESAR—continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ANECDOTES OF JULIUS. CAESAR- continued. CAESAR endured as much labor and fatigue as the meanest of his soldiers and was always in the front of the battle, where the danger was greatest; he never seemed to care what he ate, nor where he slept, nor whether he lived or died, provided he could show what a hero he was ; and whichever of his sol diers was the bravest in battle might be sure that Caesar would notice it, and give him some magnificent reward. He seemed only to wish for money and trea sures in order to distribute them as prizes amongst his soldiers, who some times were so hard pressed by their ene mies, that they would have to run away if any other person had commanded them; but they always stayed and fought to the last for Caesar. When the Roman soldiers were taken prisoners, several of them were condemned to die, bat the enemy offered to spare their lives if they would fight against Caesar, which they all refused to do, preferring death to baing disgra...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE LONG NOSED BANDICOOT. (Perameles nasuta.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE LONG NOSED BANDICOOT. (Perameles nasuta.) THE Bandicoots are closely allied in their structure to the Kangaroo, yet their teeth exhibit a remarkable differ ence, more closely resembling the opos sum, and indicating an appetite for insects. The general form of these animals is rabbit-like, but the muzzle is elongated, narrow, and pointed, the nose advancing considerably beyond the jaw. The forefeet are divided into five toes, of these the innermost is rudimentary, and the outermost a mere tubercle hav ing a minute nail. The three middle toes are large, and armed with strong claws. The hinder limbs, though not developed to the same extent as in the kangaroo, are longer than the fore limbs. The toes of the hind feet are four in number, on the inside two toes joined, as in kangaroos, each furnished with a claw, a large and robust middle toe, with a straight strong pointed claw, and a small outer toe armed with a straight claw. Bandicoots feed upon vegetab...

M., Camperdown. - In answer to your question, ' Who are the persons whom the Church of England designates heretics?' Strictly speaking, any who profess or teach opinions contrary to her faith or standards may be do denominated. The definition of what constitutes heresy has always been somewhat vague.

KATE STAFFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

KATE STAFFORD. THE girl entered the room, to inform the guests that4 Master hoped no offence, but his compliments, and he hoped they did not wish to sit up much longer, ks those were the last two bits of candle, and missis could not make any till to morrow, because the fat was not cold yet.* St. Quentin was already well disposed to retire, but waited to receive directions for hia road from Mr. Wragsby. He took out the ba«k of a letter to note some particulars. ' You'll excuse me, sir, but that's an unsafe way of carrying memorandums. Heie's'-diving into his well furnished pocket-4 here's a nice little book, now, so fortunate to be sure.' St. Quentin's eyes were fixed on the armorial bearings stamped on the vellum cover. They were those of the Lennox family. ' May I ask, Mr. Wragsby, where you | obtained this ?' I Wragsby shrank back. 4 Really could not say : picked up so many trifles in the way of his business.' i ' You are a man of sense, sir, and know the world. I believe that thi...

TOM-BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

TOM-BOYS. ? WHY is it that the 'Tom-boy' has. always been considered a name of re proach, and that as a class it is one for ever persecuted and be-rated? Simply because it has become a custom with us to consider that there is no development for the young but the mental-that our daughters do not need beautiful forms, but only 4 loves' of dresses-that Jessie, or Jennie, or Hallie, must not be children but tiny women - just mamma in duodecimo. This is a mistake. At this day, when our young men want so sadly what is tersely termed * back-bone,' when our young women want stamina, when as a people, we need physical strength, there is a ' reform' upon this subject very much needed also. I would have mothers remember that their daughters' lungs are no better adapted to bear without injury the putrid air of close and heated rooms, than is the breathing apparatus of their sons. I would have them remember that if physical education be restricted, enfeebled health, and a purposeless, aim less l...

MR. BLACK'S ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

MR. BLACK'S ENTERTAINMENT. SEVERAL very excellent entertainments have recently been given at the Library, Bent-street, by Mr. Black, upon4 National Minstrelsy.' The songs have included choice gems of many lands, but ehiefly English, Irish, and Scotch, which have been rendered in a most effective manner. Mr. Black's singing is very excellent, and his manner is highly impressive. In love songs he is parti cularly happy ; but we could have wished Moore's favorite, ' Harp that once,' had been given with a little more the air of a patriot. We perceive that he has commenced a series at the School of Arts, .where, we do not doubt, he will be largely patro nised. «

The Australian Hom Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. OUR TEA AND SUGAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

Cjjt Australian pome Compiiion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. OUR TEA AND SUGAE. OUR position in this colony is not unlike that to which the states of Europe, and the people of the world, were reduced by the introduction of gunpowder on the battle-field; for the decision of the battle of life is in some degree taken from man, by the peculiar changes in which he sometimes finds himself suddenly placed. The consequences of the inductive process are everywhere around us combining the simplest with the most magnificent results. The accident which has led to the introduction of a measure for reforming the tariff which has so long deprived this country of a free indulgence of that beverage so copiously showered down upon us from the climate of C hina, and the Chinese empire, is likely to be turned to a greater moral account than any other that has happened in this our Southern Hemisphere. Let us hope that it may be as abundantly availed of by the people. We can hardly suppose that any subject...

WILD BEE HUNTING IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

WILD BEE HUNTING IN AUSTRALIA. I AM indebted to my brother, who has been a resident for twenty years in va rious parts of the bush of Australia, for the following account of the mode employed by the aborigines in obtaining the wild honey of the stingless bees that are found in some parts of the interior of this continent. These bees, which are about the size of our common house flies, build their combs (composed of globular cells) in the hollows of trees. The black, who is desirous of obtaining the honey, betakes himself to the side of some small water-course, having provided himself "with a slender stick. He has also a little piece of fine down, picked off the leaves of a common plant, which he has previ ously twisted into a point at one end, and dipped into the sticky juice obtained by breaking the stem of another weed. Thus armed he fills his mouth with water, and when he sees a bee alight on the margin of the pool to drink, he discbarges the mouthful of water over it in a fine s...
