The Children's Model. JUVENILE LABOURERS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
®k Cbiihtn's Hlobcl. JUVENILE LABOURERS, BY KATE PYER. "No, Arthur dear, don't touch," said a gentle girl about twelve years of age, to her young brother, who was lifting a wine-glass to his mouth, that he might drain from it the remaining drops, with which it was still wet. The children were amusing them selves in the dining room, which had just been vacated by their parents and a few friends, where the remains of an elegant dessert, and a range of empty wine-glasses were still standing, as they had been left, upon the table. " Why not, Ellen,'5 responded the little boy, " I like wine very much. It is so nice." Ellen had a persuasive way of her own, and loved her brother dearly ; so she drew him nearer to her, and placing her arm round his waist, said, in a kind winning tone of voice, " In the first place, Arthur, it is neither pretty nor proper, to drain the glasses from which other people have been drinking; and then, dear, you may learn to like wine too well, and per haps when y...
Band of Sope Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
Imtir of lioiic MHiptt. NEW SOUTH WALES. THIS society held its first anni versary on Monday last, the 26th inst. It was the original intention of the committee to have held their meetings on New Year's Day, that being the date of the ( establishment of the society; but the inclement aspect of the weather rendered it expedient to postpone the meetings until Monday last. In the forenoon of that day, be tween two and three hundred of the juvenile members of the society were taken out to a large paddock on the Glebe Boad, and there regaled with plum cake, buns, and fruit. The juveniles then, led by those " children of an older growth " who accompanied them to the place, amused themselves with the old English games of cricket, football, drop handkerchief, and other innocent, and healthful re creations, and were, about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, taken from the paddock to their respective homes. At half-past six o'clock in the even ing the society held their tea meeting in the schoolroom ...
Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
lociT. OH, water, bright water, thy station sohigh! Earth's beautiful daughter the bride of the sky. The fond earth doth bless thee with gentle delight, And soft clouds caress thee embosomed in light. Thy pearly streams wander 'mid wild blooming flowers, Or gently meander through green shady bowers, Anon wildly leaping adown the cascade, Or pensively sweeping along the green shade. Of thee, O pure water, of thee do we sing ! Wine! wine is a mocker, it leaveth a sting. Ye gay, and ye happy, oh, fly from its thrall, 'Twill lead you to ruin, 'twill mock at your fall. Turn, turn to the fountain where bright waters flow, From hill side and mountain wherever ye go ; Quaff, quaff the pure nectar, 'tis flowing for thee, Health's surest protector it will ever be. J. w.
The Rescued Family. "LET EVERY MAN MIND HIS OWN BUSINESS." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
%\t lesoirir Jfantik BY MRS. HARRIET BEECHES STOWE. (Authoress of " Uncle Tom's Cabin"Dred (Continued from page 2Q.) LET EVERY MAN MIND HIS OWN BUSINESS." IT was about a week alter this that Augusta one evening presented herself at the door of a rich Mr. L , whose princely mansion was one of the ornaments of the city of A . It was not till she reached the sump tuous drawing-room that she recognised in Mr. L one whom she and her husband had frequently met in the gay circles of their early life. Altered as she was, Mr. L did not recognise her, but compassionately handed her a chair, and requested her to wait the return of his lady, who was out; and then turning, he resumed his conversa tion with another gentleman. " Now, Dallas," said he, " you are altogether excessive and intemperate in this matter. Society is not to be reformed by every man directing his efforts towards his neighbour, but by every man taking care of himself. It is you and I, my dear sir, who must begin with ourselve...

Next Wednesday the meeting will be again suspended, and will be held on Wednesday, llth February, when Mr. W. Davis will give a lecture on " Life of Alfred the Greatafter which period the committee hope to resume their ordinary weekly meetings again. Steps have been taken to organise a cricket club among some of the boys who are members of the society, to be styled " The Pitt-street Band of Hope Cricket Club." It is highly desirable that everything that is interesting and entertaining, consistent with the high object of the societies, should be connected with them. We would cordially recommend the other Bands of Hope who have not already done so, to endeavour to get their members to join for the same purpose.

PASSING THOUGHTS ON BANDS OF HOPE. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
PASSING THOUGHTS ON BANDS OF HOPE. No. I. THEKE are some projects when once set on foot, like a ball rolling down liill, want no further urging to keep them in motion. It may be desirable to accelerate their speed, and to do this it may require all the concentrated power and energy that can be brought to bear upon them; but, independent of this, their nature is to progress. Unless any scheme has this tendency, n§ artificial means will supply its place. The temperance movement has evi dently been one of natural progression, and it is only a question of time, as to the accomplishment of its mission. What its promoters have to do is to give to it all possible impetus. They have this object in view in instituting Bapds of Hope, and as it is the express design of our JOURNAL to afford en couragement and assistance to the various societies in this and the neigh bouring colonies, a few stray thoughts upon the best method of establishing and working them may not be without their use. Wherev...
The Soldier's Death. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
THE. following affecting details are 1 extracted from the Memoirs of Lieu tenant Shipp, of H.M. 87th Foot. He sajrs, as to one of the soldiers, "I shall not mention the name of , lest my narrative should by possibility meet the eye of some dear relative who still lingers on earth, and droops under the recollection of the sad event. Through the whole course of his drills and military exercises, I ever found i this young man attentive, obedient, and willing to learn: and he promised to be an ornament to the army. He glided through the commencement of liis career with the smile of joy on his youthful countenance. These were halcyon days, which were not long to last: the poisonous cup of inebriety seduced him from the paths of duty, and he drank deep of its baneful eon tents. This indulgence in intemperance led him from one error to another; on account of which, from time to time, lie incurred serious admonitions; until, at length, for the commission of a more aggravated offence, he fel...
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
of Australia. (Continued from page 395 of Vol. /.) THE last two issues have contained nothing on the history of this colony in consequence of the extra space re quired for the report of the gratifying visit of the members of the Bands of Hope to His Excellency the Governor, and the articles which it was necessary to present to our readers at the close of the old and commencement of the new years. In this number we beg to digress a little from the course of topography on which we had entered, to give an account of the extreme hardships and sufferings of those who first arrived here. They will, perhaps, become the more interesting, from the fact that J they have been just reported to the writer himself from one who was not only an eye-witness but one of the sufferers who endured the monstrous inflictions here recorded. One narra tive fan in these words:-" I was sent here at the early age of fourteen, for a crime of which I wTas as innocent as a babe. A man met me in the street, in Lon...
THE BESETTING SNARE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 31 January 1857
THE BESETTING SNARE. At a recent public meeting in Bir mingham in support of the Discharged Prisoners' Aid Society, Lord Calthorpe, who occupied the chair, called the at tention of the meeting to the evils of drunkenness, the chief cause of crime in this country, and advocated the necessity of secular education combined $rith religious instruction. The Re Harder of Birmingham addressed him self to the artizans of Birmingham. " You have no doubt," he said " been exposed to temptations of which the noble lords and right honorable gentle men present, know nothing. You have triumphed over those temptations, and you will bear me out when I say that among the most fearful and irresistible by which you were beset were the 1500 public-houses-(cheers)-the 308 taverns, the 321 ginshops, the 871 beer-houses-the authorised tempta tions offered by the Legislature to crime. (Renewed cheers.) I speak in the presence of members of both Houses of Parliament, and I affirm that these 1500 dens which t...

ND so New South Wales has beaten Victoria at that excellent game, ' CRICKET-beaten them well! How the boys love cricket! In spite of bruised fingers and broken shins-in spite of burning sunshine and burning winds, the young batsman will stand at his wicket and triumphantly resist all attempts to " bowl him out." Go where we will-wherever a little level spot of ground is to be found, and a flat board and a ball can be obtained -there are youthful matches being played. But, if cricket was popular before, what will it be now? We dare say that many a Sydney youth, as he stood watching with intense interest the late cricket match, allowed his heart almost to burst with gladness as he saw the last Victorian out, and New South Wales proclaimed the winner; and resolved that in the future he would endeavour to sustain the fame which his colony has gained. We hope he will. Cricket is a noble and healthful game, and it was a beautiful sight that might © 7 O O well gladden the young to see thos...
THE WORTH OF A WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
THE WORTH OF A WEEK. A criminal condemned to death was reprieved. The kind friend who con veyed the message of mercy, fearful of too much excitement, merely told him that it would be better for him to ^ live for another week. " A week ! " said the poor convict, " a week ! that is a long time ! "-and fainted away j through excess of joy. And if such was his joy when supposing that but | one week was added to a forfeited life, what should be our feelings of rapture and thankfulness for salvation from eternal death, and the sweet hope of eternal life, through the sufferings of God's beloved Son ? Blessed God, ! how cold is our most fervent gratitude ! how feeble our loftiest praise ! I

NEWMAN HALL AND PROHIBITION. At a meeting of a Temperance Society recently formed (October, 1856) in London, in St. George's in the East, we noticed among other speakers on the occasion the names of the Rev. Newman Hall, B. A., of Surrey Chapel, and the Rev. Hugh Allen, M. A., of St. Jude, Whitechapel. They both strongly re commended the prohibition of the liquor traffic by law as the only means of removing temptation from the path of the drunkard.
RISE AND PROGEESS OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
EISE AND PROGEESS OE AU S TEAL IA. THE following lecture on the Bise and i Progress of Australia, was delivered on the 23rd ultimo, at the Commercial School Rooms, Windsor, by Mr. Ken nedy, to the pupils of that establish ment. As one of the first things most in teresting to the minds of all, is the history of their native or adopted eountry, I will now lay before you a brief outline of the history, rise, and progress of Australia. It is true that there aie now many works from which you might glean much of what I am about submitting t . to your notice. History, however, for the most part, is dry entertainment for youths of your age, and, notwithstand ing the ability of historians, never fix^s so much on the memory as personal explanation. Under this impression I will first commence by informing you that the discovery of this vast island continent is attributed to various nations and their heroic circumnavigators. According to some writers the French, English, Dutch, and Spanish, lay...
