No title [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 7 November 1857

CHE great controversy going on in England between GOUGH and the Maine Law party is the means of bringing the temperance reformation more and more into notice. One anomaly of the contention is, that the publicans almost look upon him as their champion, while, at the same time, he is their declared and deadly foe. Their present singular partiality for him is based on a statement he made in a letter, a,s to the working of the prohibitory law in the United States. The (by them) much-admired paragraph was as follows : " The cause in this country is in a1 depressed state. The Maine Law is a dead letter everywhere. More liquor sold than I ever knew in Massachusetts, and in other states it j* about as bad." This and one or two similar statements has so charmed them . that they have had the letter printed as an ornament for their parlours. Every antagonistic paper from The Times downward has published and commented on it, and by this means it has given the Temperance party an importance in t...

Poetry. THE POSTMAN'S KNOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 7 November 1857

THE POSTMAN'S KNOCK. What a wonderful man the Postman is, As he hastens from door to door; What a medley of news his hands contain, For high, low, rich, and jfcor. In many a face he joy doth trace, In as many he grief can see, As the door is ope'd to his loud BAT TAT, And his quick delivery. Every morn, as true as the clock, Somebody hears the Postman's Knock. No. 1, he presents with the news of a birth, With tidings of death, No. 4 ; At 13, a bill of a terrible length He drops through the hole in the door. A cheque or an order at 16 he leaves, And 16 his presence doth prove ; While 17 does an acknowledgment get, And 18-a letter of love! Every mom, as true as the clock, Somebody hears the Postman's Knock! May his visits be frequent to those who expect A line from the friends they hold dear ; But rarely we hope that compell'd he will be Disastrous tidings to bear. Far, far be the day when theenvelopeshowa The dark border shading it o'er; Then long life to Her Majesty's Servant we say...

"Be a Man!" [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 7 November 1857

" i< » Ita!" BT THE AUTHORESS OF " GERTRUDE," ET(J., ETC. We must let our old friend C- tell ids tale in his own words and leave the incidents to point their own moral. " Be a man, Hal.," said Mr. Lock to His son. I thought as I looked at the noble boy that the command was unneces sary; he would assuredly never fail in manliness, nor be that miserable spectacle, a child in years, copying the vices without any of the nobility of manhood. It was a very warm day, and after the ladies left the table-for in that simple, country family they had not retired from the room, but grouped themselves before the open French windows-I had joined th6 little party. The*e were several of those -eheerfal, sensible persons amon them, whose society is always marked by a certain freshness quite indescri bable, but reviving as a sea breeze on a February day--an Australian February-and their spirited conver sation illustrated, if the expression be allowable, by a rather more than or dinary share...

Storms. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 7 November 1857

Stflms. THE sunshine has gone-the clouds have become thicker and blacker the lurid lightning has flashed across the sky-the loud thunder has roared, and, like the discharge of a thousand of heaven's artillery, has reverberated through the air. We have spoken of the beauties of sunshine ; we have told you of the clouds we saw arising all around our social hemisphere, and this time it becomes our gloomy task to tell the gtorm has c broken - that He who holdeth the lightning in His hand, and fwho commandeth the winds and the waves, has once more afflicted us that His decree went forth, and again at our gates we see tossed by the ocean the remains of a noble, and gallant ship, and some of us again are called to mourn departed friends, who found a watery grave. How vain are man's best devices and most matured plans! The ship was good and strong, she was manned by a crew of stout British tars, the pilot was on board, the anchors were already down - all seemed to have been done that was ne...

Don't play at your Work. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 7 November 1857

IN the interior of a printing-office, where all were busily engaged on. a fine afternoon at the close of summer, I was quietly seated at my desk, busy with my pen, the sound of the types, clicking in the iron stick of the compositor, making a sort of .treble to the rough bass -of the machine which rolled below. There was thus a kind of harmony in the sounds, and the mind seemed to be at rest though in the midst of labour. All was going on smoothly, when suddenly there was a shriek and the trampling of feet, and the machinery was stopped. It was evident that something of a fedrful and distressing nature had happened. Presently a messenger came in, and the truth was made known. A boy had been caught by the machine; his hand and arm had been drawn between the massy cylinders, and he had been carried away to the hospital, followed by his agitated father, who, in his affectionate heart, feared to. know the worst. And what was the cause of ; the accident ? Listen, boys ; and espe-, cially...

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 7 November 1857

GOULBURN. The second anniversary of the Goulburn Band of Hope was celebrated ,on Tuesday, 27th October. About noon a large number of juveniles were arranged in procession, the boys wearing rosettes, and many of them carrying flags bearing appropriate inscriptions. After parading through the principal part of the town they returned to the green in front of the Baptist Chapel, where they gave three hearty cheers, and being joined by many of their adult friends, proceeded a short distance into the bush. There the happy party amused themselves in various ways suitable to the occasion, which fully prepared them for the enjoyment of the good tea provided. Before, however, tea was quite concluded, a heavy shower sent the company into the tents which had been erected. The state of the weather preventing a longer stay on the ground, the party dispersed, many of them returning to the chapel, where Mr. R. Craig delivered an excellent address. Three cheers were given for the Queen, for the Band...

Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. NIGHT THE EIGHTH. HEAPING THE WHIRLWIND. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 7 November 1857

Cm fjtigjjts in a §ar-^o»in. BY T. S. ARTHUR. (Continued from page 351J NIGHT THE EIGHTH. HEAPING THE WHIRLWIND. I WAS in Washington City during the succeeding month. It was the short or closing session of a regular Congres . sional term. The implication of Judge Lyman in the affair of Green and young Hammond had brought him into such bad odour in Cedarvitte, and the whole district from which he had been chosen, that his party deemed it wise to set him aside, and take a candi date less likely to meet with so strong, and, it might be, successful an opposi tion. By so doing, they were able to secure the election, once more, against the growing temperance party, which succeeded however, in getting a Maine Law man into the State Legislature. It was, therefore, Judge Lyman's last winter at the Federal Capital. While seated in the reading-room at Fuller's Hotel, about noon, on the day after my arrival in Washington* I noticed an individual, whose face looked familiar, come in and glanced ...

OUR PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857

OUR PARLIAMENT. QiF it be true that sermons may be found in stones, we are surely not passing the boundaries of truth in asserting that instruction as well as ^ amusement may be gained by occasionally sitting in the visitor's gallery of our Souse of Assembly. Though the lawyer's clerk who has a turn for the comic is led there by the same instinct which in London would guide his steps to enjoy an hour with his favourite " Paul Bedford ; " though the absurdity of WISHY or, the pompous drivel of WASHY be as productive of laughter as ROBSON in the "Wandering Minstrel," we must still maintain, however plausible the merely comic theory may appear, that a thoughtful .man may with advantage from his snug corner, look down upon the wprking of responsible government, say once every session. The fact that these gentlemen are the representatives of the highest thought and loftiest moral feeling which this fair colony has yet attained to, and that according to the light or darkness within them, ...

The Courageous Bop. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857

®jrt Cffttragt®ns ^og. In the district of Ebbw Yale, Mon mouthshire, Wales, where there are numerous lines of railways for the removal of the produce of the mines, a boy, wlv> is a member of one of the Bands of Hope, had the misfortune to have his leg crushed, not long ago, by the engine, as it passed through the valley. His screams brought some men to his assistance, who conveyed him home. The doctor came, and he found it necessary to remove the in jured limb. In order to nerve the youthful sufferer to bear the pain, he was told that he should have some brandy, but the courageous lad nobly said, " No, thank you, I want none, nor will I have any if both legs have to come off" This instance of moral courage under severe suffering is both pleasing and encouraging, as an instance of what is doing, and may yet be done, amongst the young, thereby proving the truth of the statement contained in the best of books, u Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will no...

The Vision. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857

CJj't fision. ONE evening lately, I was sitting at an advanced hour in my study, revolving the pages of Dante's Inferno. My mind was agitated by many harassing circumstances, magnified and distorted by an over-wrought imagination. Yet instead of seeking to calm this perturba tion by the charm of soothing words, such as are to be found in the poems of Cowper, or Campbell, or Rogers, I felt urged by an unnatural impulse to satiate my thoughts, as it were, with what is terrible and overwhelming, by plunging into the strange horrors of that revelation of vengeance and woe.! Dante describes himself as being guided j by Virgil through the portals of hell, and conducted from one region of punishment to another, each region being appropriated to some particular crime, which is there visited with its own peculiar sufferings. As my eye passed along the lines, I accompanied them in thought through each gradation of guilt and misery, and carried away by the vivid delineation of torment, seemed ...

GOULBURN. ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857

GOTJLBURN. ANNUAL MEETING, THE second annual meeting of this Band of Hope was held in the Baptist Chapel, on Wednesday evening, Nov. 4th. The chapel was crowded. The chair was 1 taken by Mr. B. Craig, and the meeting having been opened by singing and prayer, the Chairman addressed the assembly in a long and eloquent speech. He referred to the time when the tree which was expected to yield the fruits of sobriety was planted-the many fears which were then entertained. It was for those present to say, whether after the growth of two j'ears it presented any signs of decay. Whether the originatorg had muse to despond and not expect the best results. Their procession, last week, had excited inquiry, particularly amongst those who resided out of the town. The Secretary read the Beport. The present number of members was 235, being an increase of 75 during the year. About 20 meetings had been held, many devoted to addresses on teetotalism, and a few to lectures on other subjects, singing, an...
