GEOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 19 January 1856
GEOGRAPHY. BEFORE entering into the more interest ing description on the various Quarters of the Globe, it is desirable, for all who wish to be well informed even of the outlines of this valuable science, that they should know how the surface of the earth is described by Geographers. It will greatly assist the readers if they turn to a Map or a Globe, and bear in mind which are the four cardinal points of the compass, viz.,North, South, East, West. The top of the Map being North the bottom must be South, the right hand being East, the left must be West. On these Maps or GHobes will be seen a number of circles drawn across them, and a number of dotts and marks cheqvered all over tbem.alm,ost like a draft or a chess board. These we will endeavour to explain as briefly as possible. Our readers however must not expect at once to know them by memory, for they usually take some little time to learn. As nothing worth learning ought to damp their courage, they must take their first lessons ...

THE DRUNKARD'S END. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
THE DRUNKARD'S END. Y YOUNG FEIENDS will remem * ber that it was the wish of a I very remarkable and very wick ked man that he " should die the death of the righteous, and that his last end should be like his." And oh, from how many hearts does this wish still con tinue to proceed, who nevertheless go on in sin, and die the very death, Balaam died, away from God, and far away from peace. Many a one sees the right path, yet he cleaves to his sins and so perishes, it may be within view of the very gates .f Paradise. And the poor drunkard is one of this sort. In his sober moments lie wishes to be free, and sometimes you find him convulsively struggling against the torrent that is carrying him along on its turbid bosom. But his struggles are only convulsive-they spring not Irom heart hatred of his sin, but only from a view of its terrible consequences, and so lie yields, and yields, until all moral power is gone. The other day it was our lot to follow the remains of a drunkard to the to...
ANCIENT HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
ANCIENT HISTORY. IN pursuing our sketches ot Ancient History, it will be both interesting and ! instructive perhaps to refer to the ad' vancement of the Arts and Sciences ai their earliest period of human and earthly development. After the conquest of the Egyptian Monnrchy by the cele brated Gambyses, a Persian Monarch, ia about the year 525 B.e;-who obtainedhiâ success in arms, by the singular strata-* gem, of placing in front of his Legions a variety of Animals, which the Egyptians worshipped v this pêaple turned serious attention to th« Arts- aa&lt;i Sciences. Among these they first ranked Agricul-^ ture a« the source of the most solid wealth and exhaustless treasure, as well as tlie most natural and honourable pur suit for mao. " Though mines-of gold and silver shouldbe exhausted, and the moneys made of them lost ^though pearls and diamonds should remain hid in the womb of the earth and sea;- though commerce' should be prohibited y though all Art» which have no other obj...
GAS WITHOUT COALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
GAS WITHOUT COALS. We (Boston. Traveller) were much, in terested the other day at the store of Hr. N. W. Turner, Nos. 23 and 25, Bromfield-street, with the inspection of an apparatus for ] generating gas from a new material, and the j joint patentees for which are Messrs. A. and A. Davis of Lowell, and Mr. C. Cunningham of Nashua, N.H. The material for gener ating the gas, which is - eflfected without the application of external heat, and by mere chemical action, consists simply of zinc and hydro-chloric acid. This yields, a gag, |>f great purity and brilliancy,-as contrasted with the coal gas, the same quantity yielding twice the illuminating power. The whole apparatus is contained in a cylinder three foet in height, and sixteen inches in diameter ; »nd by means of it every family may be their own manufacturer. Nor is there much care or attention required in its management, but a machine capable of generating sufficient for eight lights will require looking to and feeding only o...
RUM SELLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
RÏÏM SELLEE, 1 " Don't! oh dont sell him anymore drink ! Have pity on us," cried a poor heart-broken wife to a gin-shop keeper. " You have got nearly all we have in the world-my poor husband's character, health, and reason, are nearly all gone. For the sake of his poor unhappy family, don't let him have any more liquor." " Get out of my house, or I'll kick you out; don't come here with your noise, I am LICENSED' to sell," responded the hard-hearted publican.
Alice, er Killing' Folks in our Hearts. (From the Christian Treasury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
Alice, er Killing' Folks in our Hearts. (From the Christian Treasury.) Alice was the youngest of a large circle of I brothers and sisters. She was the pet; but -she wa* not a spoiled pet-wilful and selfish as pets are apt to be. She had a mother who made her children not only love, but revere and obey her ; she was a praying mother, whose heart's desire, both by pre cept and example, was to lead her little ones to " the Lamb of God, who taketh away ûie sin of the world." The Holy Spirit owed this motherls efforts, and the four eldest were numbered among the people of God. Her first prayer for little Alice was, that she might have an obedient heart and a tender conscience. Alice was now five years old, and could you have seen her in company with her cousin Ruth, her playmate, and schoolmate, as they dressed dolls or skip ped off to school, you would have said. Surely, innocence and love dwell in the bosoms of these little ones. One night when it came for Alice's bed time, slie had no...

Let our young readers take tbeir slates and pencils, and tnen calculate how much valuable time will be added to their lives, by rising early, should God graciously spare them to live fifty, or sixty years. Early to bed,-early to rise ; The way to be healthy, wealthy, and wise.
CAUTION TO SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
CAUTION TO SMOKERS. An inquest was held some time ago on the body of a boy named George Hill, aged ten years, whose death was caused by smoking tobáceo. He was in his usual health, playing with o*her lads rn the morning; and at about two o'clock he purchased and smoked some tobacco ; on going home at dinner-time he placed his hand on his temple and exclaimed, " Mother ! mother Î murder ! murder ! " and fell on the floor. A medical man was sent for, but the boy was in a state of collapse, and shortly after expired ; the doctor stated that the symptoms were such as over-smoking would produce. It is to be boped that this death will do something towards putting a stop to the absurd and injurious practice so pre valent among mere children of indulging in the habit. There is a youth whoso anxious mother states, that a medical gentleman assured her that if her son had smoked another onnce of tobacco nothing could have been done to restore, him to health. As it is, the narcotic poison has s...
GOLD DUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
GOLD DUST. À CLBAR conscience is the best law, and Tem perance the best physic. ALL is hollow where the heart bears not a part, and all is peril where principle is not the guide. Do WHAT you ought, and let what will come of it LST a man do his best, and the world may do its worst. FIRST deserve and then desire. A CIVIL answer to a rude speech, costs not much, and is worth a great deal. Bs at peace with mankind, but at war with tûéir vices. EXPERIENCE bas taught us little if it has not instructed us to pity the errors of others, and amend our own. À DRUNKEN STORY.-The following story was lately told by a reformed inebriate, a.s aa apology for much of the folly of drunk ards :-A mouse ranging about a brewery, happening to fall in a vat of beer, was in imminent danger of drowning, and appealed to the cat to help mm out. The cat replied, " It is a foolish request, for as soon as I get yo* out I shall eat you." The mouse piteously replied, that that would be far better than to be drowned...
There are two ways to live on Earth. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
There are two ways fo live on Eartfc. There are two ways to live on earth : Two ways to judge-to act-to view ; For all things here have double birth, i A right and wrong-a false and. true ! Give me home where kindness seeks To make that sweet which seemeth small y Where every IÍD in fondness speaks And every mind hath care for all! Whose inmates live in glad exchange Of pleasures, free from vain expense ; Whose thoughts beyond their means ne'er range, Nor wise denials give offence ! Who in a neighbour's fortune find No wish-^-no impulse-to complain ; Who feel not-never felt-the mind' To envy yet another's gain ! Who dream not of the mocking tide Ambition's foiled endeavour meets ; The bitter pangs and wounded pride ; Nor fallen Power r that shuns the streets. Though Fate deny its glittering store, Love's wealth is still the wealth to choose *r~ For all that Gold can purchase more Are gauds-it is no loss to lose ; Some beings, wheresoe'èr they go, Find nought to please-or to exalt ; ...

THE FIRST KIND WORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
THE FIRST KIND WORD. "Was. your lesson difficult," kindly inquired a young teacher of a ragged anii uncouth-looking lad of about ten years, who was one of a class which, had just finished a recitation--" Was your lesson difficult, my bey T The boy thus addressed raised his large grey eyes with an inquiring look, as if to .satisfy himself that words breathed in so sweet a tone were intended for him, ; but as lie met his teacher's gentle gaze they fell, and drooping his head, he forbore, to reply. His teacher perceiving he felt the rebuke, and deeming it sufficient, said no more, and dismissed the class. This lad, Johnny by name, was the son, of poor parents, both of wbom were hab ituated to the use of ardent spirits, and, of course, grossly neglected their children, beating and abusing them, as their excited, passions prompted ; seldom, and perhaps never, letting fall from their lip? a word of kindly intorest even, much les« of love. Johnny being of a mischievous, temperament, was. t...
AWAY! AWAY! AWAY! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 February 1856
AWAY! AWAY! AWAY! BY H. ROGERS. O THAT I were an airy thing, To float on the ocean spray ! For ever, ever on the wing, Still floating, and still wandering Away! away! away! Wild as the billows of the sea, My ever-varying course should be. Fd travel on-for ever on, No pause, no peace, no stay ; Now in the storm-now in the sun Nothing to seek, nothing to shun, Away! away! away! Where'er the drifting winds should blow, Where'r the restless wave should flow? Why should the spirit be thus wife That lives within this clay f O man, thou art a wayward child, By every passing shade beguiled, Away! away! away! Thy wanderings never, never cease -w Thou ever wagest war with peace.
