A MOTHER'S TREASURE IN HEAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
A MOTHER'S TREASURE IN HEAVEN. LITTLE Ellen used to say her prayers kneeling at the foot of her bed like her brothers and sisters. She was six years old. But one morning she told her mother she was not satisfied with that, and wished they could have a little prayer together night and morning till she could be sure she was one of Jesus Christ's lambs. Now, this mother had often prayed for each of her children and given them to Christ from the day they were born, so it made her very happy, j*nd they prayed together morning and even ing to the Good shepherd; and he heard their prayer. About three months passed away and the dear child grew more and more thoughtful, and then after a few days severe suffering she died, for Jesus&lt; took her, and her last words were, There is a happy land, far far away.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. -* THE APPLE. THERE dwelt a rich man in King Herod's Palace, who was his lord cham berlain, and clothed himself in purple and fine linen, and lived every day magnificently and in all pleasures. And there came from a far country a friend of his youth, whom he had not seen for many years. And the chamberlain to do him honour, made a great feast and bade all his friends. Upon the tables were placed many magnificent dishes in gold and silver, and numerons costly flagons with ungents and wines of every sort. And the rich man sat on high at table and made good cheer; and on his right hand sat his fiiend who had come from a far country, and they ate and drank and were merry. Then spake the guest from afar land to King Herod's chamberlain: "Never throughout my own country far and wide, have I beheld such magnifi cence and splendour as in thy house!' and he lauded his splendour and praised him as the most fortunate of the sons of men. But the rich man the chamberlain of...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
Australian Home (fompatmn, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. ? CAN any thoughtful mind look upon this our adopted country without feeling the . great responsibility which rests upon those whose influences are moulding the institutions which are to form our national character. Is it to such a matter of indifference if they are men who aim not at the highest statue of national greatness. We say it is a subject worthy the consideration of every lover of his species, and who are anxious to engraft into the very foundation of our social and moral institutions, those great principles and virtues which alone can exalt this or any nation. We are proud to claim citienship with the mightiest nation of either ancient or modern times, a nation to which suffering and oppressed humanity look to with eyes full of expectation, knowing on her shores the oppressed can breathe with freedom, as tyrants can not polute her shores, or oppressors drag their victims from off her territory. Yet even Britain groans u...
"SMUGGLING AT PORT STEPHENS;" OR, THE "MYALL PETS OF NEW SOUTH WALES." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
SMUGGLING AT PORT STEPHENS OR, THE "MYALL PETS OF NEW SOUTH WALES." To the north of Port Stephens there is almost half a colony of country entirely isolated, and as wild and free from the domineering disposition of the white man as any part of the world can possi bly be. This happy region is cut off from all other settlements by a high and almost inaccessible mountain range, and may be said to be in the possession and under the government of the descendants of the original Aboriginal natives of * Seal Rock,' and Port Stephens, called by the Aborigines ' Carrabean.' The grand features and attractions of this region are the Myall Lakes, out of which the natives obtain deliciously-flavoured fish throughout the year. A long sinnous river of nearly seventy miles in length is the only other channel of communication with the Lakes. The mouth of this river is in the harbour: the east coast being girt in by the billows of the Pacific ocean, and the west and north boundary by the high mountai...
THE WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
THE WIFE. * WHY SO sad, Earnest ?' said the young wife to her husband, affectionately twi ning her arms around his neck and kissing tiim. He looked up with a sad smile and replied: ' I am almost out of heart, Mary. I think of all pursuits, a profession is the worst. Here have I been, week after week, and month after month-I may soon say, year after year-waiting for praGti®, yet without success. A lawyer may volunteer in a celebrated case, and so make himself; but a physician must sit painfully in his office, and, if unknown, see men without half his acquirements, rolling in wealth, while perhaps he is starving. And it will soon come to that,' he said bitterly, 4 if I do not get employ ment/ An unbidden tear started in the wife's eye, but she strove to smile and said, ' Do not despond, Earnest, I know you have been unfortunate so far, but you have talents and knowledge to make your way, as soon as you get a start. And depend upon it,' she added with a cheerful look, 'that will come w...

THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER XII. BERTHA'S ADVENTURE, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
TIIE HOLY HOMES, BY 8ILVERPEN. (Continued from page 27.) CHAPTER XII. BERTHA'S ADVENTURE, IT might have been thought that Ber tha's father still slept, and that her duty lay in watching him by the lengthened time she knelt, and by the manner she gazed upon his face. Maggy's knocking at length aroused her, so going lightly down-stairs, she let the woman in. The faithful creature was at once struck by her young mistress' looks. " What is the matter, ma'am? Some fresh trouble, I know. Eh ! what a pity these troubles be-to you. too, who give nothin' but comfort to others." " It is indeed a great trouble, Maggy ; come up-stairs with me, and see." She led the woman, who was young and comely, up to the old man's cham ber, and thence very softly to the bed. " There it is, Maggy, the greatest that earth can ever hold for me." Then, her fortitude all gone, she flung herself down by the bed, and gave way to a wild par oxysm of grief, quite awful to behold. Maggy sought to console her; apart fr...
THE DYING SORROW OF THE WIDOW'S BOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
THE DYING SORROW OF THE WIDOW'S BOY. I DO not fear to die, mother, Why should I fear to die, Since God hath many abetter world Away in the starry sky ? But with the years of the loving past All shadowed on my heart, Filled with thy motherhood,-I weep To think how we must part. It is leaving you alone, mother, With little sister Bell Whom we do love so tenderly, And who loveth us so well: I'm thinking of a thousand things That we have done in play And how lonely will poor Bell be When I am reft away. And who will bring you chips, mother, And water from the well ? And who-for 'tis a lonesome way Will go to school with Bell ? I know 'tis sinful to repine I know 'tis good to be resigned; Yet sorrow is in the thought of how I am leaving you behind. Nor can I well forego, mother, The fondly cherished plan Of all I had to do for you When once I were a man: Ah, this, that erst in prospect rose Like a tree in its summer bloom, Is standing, now, a withered thing Between me and the tomb! But -...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. BEAR MR. EDITOR,-I am delighted at finding that Sydney is to be embellished with fountains-it will be charming! I have often listened to the murmur of the splashing water at Versailles, and even in London with delight; how beautiful it will be in Sydney, hot, dusty Sydney. I'm sure the Citv Council ought to have a handsome testimonial presented to them. I must give you the the fashions now, they came to me by the Oneida. I find poplin and woollen plaids are much in favor for walking dresses ; satin, taf fetas, and velvet are also worn ; skirts are still very full, some made quite plain, many with two, three, or more flounces, and double skirts are not quite discarded. One deep flounce with a heading, or seve ral narrow flounces are worn. Flat plait ings of ribbon, or taffetas of colours different from the dress, make pretty trimmings. Bodies are made quite plain, with the exception of handsome buttons which fasten the front. Basques are worn, but rounded or pointed bo...
THE FORCE OF EARLY HABIT: AN EMIGRANT'S STORY TAKEN FROM REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
THE FORCE OF EARLY HABIT: AN EMIGRANT'S STORY TAKEN FROM REAL LIFE. NEVER my dear friend, exclaimed a settler, some three years ago, never shall I be able to conquer the early habit of my youth-never be able to withstand the charms of Mountain Dew. It is the first beverage I distinctly remember to have drank-it seems far more familiar to me than mother's milk-far more na tural than the draft which cheers bat not inebriates. Well, I remember, when yet a youngster barely let loose from my mo ther's apron string, how I clambered up the rocky-pass which led to the secret still, and how I smacked my lips as I tasted the freely offered spirit. Little did the good natured fellows think of the fatal seeds their illicit trade was daily, hourly, sowing amongst their kith and kin-little dreamed they of the lasting hold and withering influence their fancied kindly gift would hereafter exercise on the hardy child, who then stood all life and ruddy health before them. As I grew up there was littl...
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 29 January 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. A Chinese in Victoria was a witness at an inquest. He was asked how he took an oath? He said, 'on the book.' The magistrate then asked if he were a Chris tian. He replied that he was. The magistrate then inquired what he meant by being a Christian ? The witness ans wered, 'Oh, wearing a coat like yours, and being a great swell.' A FEW days ago, a poor Irishman, who applied for a license to sell ardent spirits, being questioned by the Board of Excise as to his moral fitness for the trust, replied, ' Ah, sure, it is not much of a character that a man needs to sell rum!' THE young lady, who eloped a few months since with a ' distinguished major,' has returned with a minor in her arms. AT a wedding the other day one of the guests, who often is a little absent minded, observed gravely, ' I have often remarked that there have been more women than men married this year. IT was observed of a deceased lawyer, that he left but a few effects. ' No wonder,' said a wag, he...

"WE HAVE JUST BEGUN TO FIGHT." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
WE HAVE JUST BEGUN TO FIGHT." "We have just begun to fight This is the battle cry, Be thi9 our motto till the night Of darkness hence shall fly, And virtue as the glorious light; Reigns universal clear and bright, And in each heart and every home Her sister tem'prance shares the throne. We have just begun to fight, Nor shall we ever fail, Till public voice, and public right, The "great Maine Law" Bhallhail Till drinking Hall and Palace proud No more deceive the sottish crowd. Nor drunkard's revelry be heard, But peace shall triumph undisturbed. We have just begun to fight, Our arms shall still be strong, Till prince and people use their might To crush this public wrong, Till freedoms flag floats proudly o'er Australia's golden, sunny snore, Till we a band of Freemen stand And victory's cry rings thro the land.
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. AVARICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. AVARICE. AGE and reason are generally cures tor most passions, while avarice appears to find new strength in old age. The nearer we advance toward that fatal moment ?wherein onr sordid treasures must disap pear and be taken from us, the closer we cling to them. The nearer death ap proaches, the more we feast our eyes with the miserable gold, the which we consider a necessary precaution for a chimerical future. In old age this unbecoming passion, is thug to speak reborn. Years, sickness, reflection, each help to plant it more firmly in the soul, and it is fed and inflamed by thoie remedies which cure and extinguish the others, men have been seen in a decrepitude, barely leaving them strength to sustain a carcase ready to fall into dust, preserve amidst the total failures of the faculties of the soul, a sign of sensibility but for this passion it alone feeds and fattens upon the ruins of all the rest. The last sigh is for it, the disquietudes of the last moments...
