The Broken Wreath. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 30 January 1858

firohii SEnallj. BY MISS ELIZA THORP. (Continued from page 28*) BUT there was another cloud about to pass over her oncc bright sky, darker and more dense than the first, one for which she was unpre pared. Her husband begau to stop out late at night, and when her anxiety urged her to remonstrate with him, he would answer her irritably ; after a while he became more bold, and would remain out until three or four o'clock in the morning. "She soon discovered from his altered behaviour and unkind words, that he was become the slave of intempe rance ! He no longer caressad his little ones as lie used to do, and began by degrees to treat them with careless indifference. Thus does the deadly draught which the cup of intemperance contains, change the nature of those who drink from it, destroying natural affection and weakening the brightest intellect. At the age of six and thirty, in the prime of vigour and manhood, her husband died, leaving her another infant, nine months old. 1 cannot dwel...

Poetry. "THE QUEEN—GOD BLESS HER!" Air, "The King—God bless him!" [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 30 January 1858

"THE QUEEIf-GOD BLESS HEE!" BY SIR WILLIAM A'BECKETT, LATE CHIEF JUSTICE OF VICTORIA. The King-God bless him /" Now comrades, uprise whilst a toast I give out, And though water alone's in our glass, I'll warrant we'll give a teetotaller's shout, Which no winebibber's cheer shall sur pass ! Steady hands, steady hearts, for our Queen we have got; And we'll neither insult nor distress her By breathing her name with the lips of a sot: [her!" But for all that we'll shout " Goa bless " God bless her! God bless her! [her!" " Here's a health to the Queen-God bless They may laugh at white faces, the bottle-nosed crew! With fever heat flushing their veins; But better our cheeks wore the palest of hue Than be coloured by blotches and stains, 'lis a Lady, remember, that graces our throne* Nor dare we presume to address her, Did temperance mark not our look and our tone; But for all that we'll shout " God bl<ss her!" In water then pledge her-the pure for the pure Taste, feeling are al...

Division of Labour in London. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 30 January 1858

$ib.istoit of fitter in ITonbon. THE streets in London in many places are so steep that heavy drays and om nibuses cannot come down without locking the wheels. This operation, though insignificant, furnishes an opportune illustration of the extent to which the principle of the division of labour has been car ried in London. | Just look at that lumbering omni i bus, thundering along at a fast trot ! down Holborn Hill It has reached I i the brink when the horses are stopped I for a second; and at that very mo j ment a fellow makes a rush at. the | omnibus, bending his body almost ! under the wheels, and moving forward ] with the vehicle,.which still proceeds, he unhooks the drag, and puts it to one of the hind-wheels. This done, he calls out a All right!" The horses, sagacious creatures, understand the meaning of that sentence as well as the driver ; they fall again into a sharp trot down the hill. At the bottom there is another human creature mak ing a neck-or-nothing rush at the whe...

(Continued from page 25.J U HALLOA, Henry ! I <lon;t call that moderation-drinking so early in the morning," said Mr. Tucker, as he suddenly entered the breakfast-room on the following morning, and saw Henry helping himself rather plenti fully to some brandy from a decanter on the sideboard. " I don't approve of it; that's a downright drunkard's habit. I rarely taste anything of the sort until eleven o'clock." "You surely forget," said Henry, " that I have often seen you take a glass directly after you got up. You say you are a moderate drinker, and I am only following your example." " I will confess that I have occasion ally done as you say, after having been up later than usual overnight at a supper party or something of the sort," said Mr. Tucker, "but then I have used it medicinally, as a kind of cor rective to my stomach." " That is precisely how I am taking it now," said Henry. 4 41 have not quite got over my Sunday's excesses, and I feel so miserably shaky that I s...

The Children's Portfolio. THE COCKS-COMB. A TRUE STORY OF LONDON STREETS.—IN SEVEN CHAPTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 30 January 1858

%\t Cbilh'tn's Intffllk THE COCJ£S-COMB, A TRUE STORY OF LONDON STREETS.-IN SEVEN CHAPTERS. CHAP. I. MARGARET AND HER FAMILY. IT was a fine summer morning, as Margaret Duncan, with her well-filled basket, went slowly along some of the quiet streets which are to be found in the outskirts of London. She was a pale thin-looking woman, tidily, but shabbily dressed; and her burden consisted of several fine plants, nearly in fall flower, ranged in scarlet-coloured pots. Day after day, Margaret might be seen, bent on the same fragrant but wearisome errand, that of disposing of her thriving roots. Sometimes she was very successful, and parted with most of her stock; and sometimes she scarcely sold anything. This morning, however, she had already met with two or three customers, so that the day promised well; and Margaret's eye brightened, and her step quickened, as she pictured to herself-for even flower women can build castles in the air her happy return home towards even ing. Poor Margare...

Our Fred's Letter Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 30 January 1858

(Dm; Jfreifs fetter Home. DEAR FRANK Your last letter was rather too severe upon your old friend for not keeping you thoroughly " posted up" in the goings on of Sydney. I plead guilty to the charge of being a bad correspondent, but urge in mitigation of damages the wretched manner in which Sydney has been treated by the directors of our too-richly-subsidised Mail Steam Company, and also the fact that there has been little occurring here worth writing about. With the exception of the loss of the " Dunbar " and " Catherine Adamson " (news too full of sadness for epistolary corres pondence), our surface history has been as bleak and barren of interesting events as Salisbury Plains of mountains. I knew that you, almost as crusty and cynical as your favourite philosopher, il Tom of Chelsea," were heartily sick of home- party statesmanship, that with a few exceptions you entertained a profound contempt both for the mental calibre and purity of motive of the heroes of St. Stephen's, that y...

NEWTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

NEWTOWN. February 5.-Mr. E. Pavey enter tained the members of this society with an address on " The Gold-fields of New South Wales." Some new members were added at the close. Last evening Mr. H. B. Lee gave a lecture entitled, 4< Reminiscences of London. Next Friday, the 19th inst., Mr. J. B. Mummery will give a lecture on the " Aborigines of Australia." These meetings are held weekly, and not fortnightly, as erroneously stated in a previous notice. Between 80' and 90 have become members of the society. A FEW numbers back we published an extract of a letter from a gentlemen in London. In another letter we find the following: " Although all do not join you in your spirit of philanthropy, yet they say, and must say-no thanks to them the community will be bettered. Go on ! your labour has the sanction of the Most High. You will be the means of making many a heart that would have been otherwise sad to dance tor joy. Look at the mothers of Australia, who have to follow their c...

THE ALLIANCE BAND OF HOPE. (LATE PITT STREET.) [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

THE ALLIANCE BAND OF HOPE. (LATE PITT STREET.) Last Wednesday evening an enter tainment of more than ordinary interest was given by Mr. G. J. Crouch, with the Dissolving Yiews. The scenes were brilliant and exciting, and accom panied by the plaintive music of the harp and concertina, were exceedingly interesting. Upwards of 500 were present. The next meeting will be held on j Wednesday week, when addresses will be delivered by several warm friends of the society. For prizes, &c., see advertising sheet.

Gardening. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

darbtning. As a Home Companion we have long thought of introducing into our JOURNAL the subject of G-ardening. The desirability of occupying any part of its limited space with such matter has been the question at issue, knowing that if done at all it must be somewhat superficial; and though some of our readers may be better able to instruct us than wTe them on such matters, still we have decided upon finding it a comer. Many of our subscribers have plots of ground to our certain knowledge, of which they make little use, (we know they will forgive us for peeping through their palings and over their fences), and a few hints from an " Old Colonist " about kitchen stuff, as to what to grow and how to grow it, might be to them acceptable. We shall confine our attention to the useful rather than the ornamental, giving from month to month some general directions for a kitchen garden. Taking it for granted that all know how to dig a piece of ground, water it, or sprinkle seeds upon it, we p...

The Children's Portfolio. THE COCKS-COMB. A TRUE STORY OF LONDON STREETS.—IN SEVEN CHAPTERS III.—MARGARET'S PURCHASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

%h Cfrilhtn's Itortfolio. THE COCKS-COMB. A TRUE STORY OF LONDON STREETS.-IN SEVEN CHAPTERS .MARGARET'S PURCHASE. When dinner was over, Margaret put on her things again, kissed her children, and taking in her hand the money for the ordered plant, went up to Covent Garden to get it. She chose a beautiful flower, which she was sure would please the lady : and little thought of the fate that awaited it. As she was very carefully making her way through the streets somebody pushed roughly against her, or rather against her precious plant, and broke off the flower! That " somebody" was a young man, or rather a great boy, with a large bag on his arm ; but he did not choose to see what mischief he had done, nor to hear the reproaches and lamentations which issued from Margaret's lips. He had no intention of paying for his carelessness, so he marched off as quickly as he could, leaving Margaret no other consolation than the pity and sympathy of a few lookers-on. But all the pity in the world...

The Bushman's Grave. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

CJjt ^us|man's (§hk SEVERAL summers and winters, with their various changes, have come and passed away since the rough paling enclosing the grave of poor Dick Morriss was erected by his sorrowing hutmates, necessitated by the assidu ous efforts of the native*dog to disinter his remains. When first I saw his grave the mound was fresh, and so was the fencing of rough iron-bark surrounding it. But now, of course, the latter is discoloured, and the former plentifully grown over ] with the herbs and wild flowers in digenous to that part of the colony. Poor Dick was a stockman at a station about twelve miles from the one I resided at, on the Barwan lliver. He was beloved by all who knew him, for he was always kind and obliging to his neighbours, and truly hospitable to such travellers as passed his way ; and his melancholy end, which occurred whilst I was on a visit to Sydney, I here chronicle hoping that whilst it in terests, may also carry with it the moral intended, that of showing to ...

NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

NORFOLK ISLAND. fflyA' HO would have declared ten years ago that Norfolk Island-beautiful vIlAi/V though it be in all the glories of waving pine trees and tropic verdure-would ever present a picture of moral loveliness worthy of imitation by civilised and religious communities ? Yet so it is. As at the close of a black and stormy day, when the " elemental strife " has ceased, the darkest cloud turns into the brightest mass of fleecy gold, so this lonely islet, once the abode of vice and crime, is now the home of a Christianity that shines through the moral firmament with pristincflbrightness. Arcadian simplicity is not extinct, and the gardens of the Hesperides are found in an island of the Pacific, We do not want, however, to give a history of this transformation, full of wondrous scenes as that history may be. We cannot go with the muti neers of the "Bounty" and their Tahitian wives to Pitcaim Island, nor watch the man, who, after having wandered from the right path, returned from...

Poetry. "GIVE ME TO DRINK?" [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

"GIVE ME TO DRINK?" " Give me to drink ?" and who ana wnat art Thou That askest drink of me, a child of earth ? 0 wondrous suppliant! Yes, I know Thee now, Though once a stranger to Thy match less worth. Give Thee to drink! Yes, had I seen Thee here Athirst and Weary, seated on the well, Oh, how my heart had throbbed Thine heart to cheer, This feeble tongue it hath no words to tell. But Jesus, say what would'st Thou have me do To prove the love I then would fain have showed. " I have a little band, a faithful few, Pilgrims and strangers on their home ward road. "Whene'er you see them weary on the waj, Athirst or fainting, then remember ME ; Think then thou hearest Me, the MASTER, say, ' Give me to drink'-this boon I crave of thee. " And Oh ! when thou shalt sit with me beside The river of life's water, cool and clear The same which issued from my wounded side When, in death's agony, 1 thirsted here " I will give thee to drink-Oh! such a draught Of life and love from my unbounded sto...

"I Can't." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

Can't. APOLLO! what a face! Doleful as a hearse ; folded hands ; hollow chest; whining voice ; the very picture of cowardly irresolution. Spring to your feet, hold up your head, set your teeth together, draw that fine form of yours up to the height that God made it; draw an immense long breath, and look about you. What do you see ? Why, all creation taking care of number one; pushing ahead like the car of Jugger naut, over live victims. There it is, and you can't help it. Are you going to lie down and be crushed? By all that is manly, no! dash ahead ! You have as good a right to mount the triumphal car as your neighbour. Snap your fingers at croak ers. If you can't get round a stump, leap over it, high and dry. Have nerves of steel, a will of iron. Never mind sideaches, or heartaches, or head aches-dig away without stopping to breathe, or to notice envy or malice. Set your target in the clouds, and aim at it. If your arrow falls short of the jnark, what of that ? Pick it up and go a...

The Broken Wreath. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

BY MISS ELIZA THORP. (Continued from page 41.) " WE shall have to leave here," said my mother, "but that is the least of regrets. We must retire to some very humble cot tage, and there, by our own industry, earn a scanty subsistence." " I will freely work for you, dearest and best of parents; the thought almost makes me happy," " I bless God that you are thus enabled to bring your mind to your circumstances, for the worst trial is thus over. We can not expect that Miss Haberfield should go with us into obscurity and indigence ; but I shall ever remember her sympathy and kindness in my heavy calamities, and unwearying attention to both you and your cousin during your illness. Your cousin is still very ill; she blames herself for dear Mary's death, in sending her for the book, nor can I comfort her. The doctor gives us little hope of her recovery; she is so changed you would hardly know her." At the end of the week my mother received a note from her lawyer, stating that he had the ple...

Selections. "YOU DON'T TALK OF JESUS AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 February 1858

Stltdioits. "YOU DON'T TALK OF JESUS AT HOME." In the neighbourhood of Ross, a lady, who was in the habit of visiting the poor for benevolent purposes, took he? little daughter with her. The child saw, heard, and was interested. But there was something which the child could not exactly make out. So, on the road home, she said, " Mamma, when you are out visiting the poor, you always talk about Jesus Christ to them, but you don't talk of him at home" HOW A SUN" STROKE AFFECTS MAN. The general impression is that death by sun-stroke is very painful, but the contrary would seem to be the fact, judg ing from the following account of the effect of such a visitation, given by General Sir Charles J. Napier. He ex perienced an attack while in Scinde, where the thermometer, according to General Napier himself, was of as much use to him as it would have been to a boiling lobster, and wrote as follows to one of his daughters : "The sun-stroke was a staggerer; yet my hope is to die by one, for ne...

He loved the sea; and had long had an ardent desire to visit the romantic islands of the south, and view those tropical scenes which he had so often pictured in his glowing imagination; and now he was actually going-was about to cast aside for a time, the anxieties and irksome duties of his office, and roam about as unfettered as an ocean bird: he was delighted with the idea, and was in unusually good spirits when he reached his home. He found Mrs. Tucker sitting alone one oi the dining-room windows, with a book in her hand; but it was long past the time when she could see to read it without the aid of a candle, " I am enjoying the cool, refreshing air of this calm, quiet evening, and am far from being dull," she said in reply to Henry's polite salutation. " Mr. Tucker is dining on board the 'Frolic,'" she continued, "and as the servant...
