The Children's Portfolio. "WHICH WAS THE BRAVEST?" [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858

"WHICH WAS THE BRAVEST?" "THAT'S my marble, Johmiy Wat son," said Edward Drew ; " come, hand it up here." " I shall not give it to you, Edward, for I picked it up/' " If you did piek it up it is mine, and if you don't give it to me directly I'll knock you down," said Edward angrily. " Will you though ; two can play at that game, so come on, I'm ready," said Johnny, doubling his fists and putting himself into a fighting atti tude. " Hurrah ! hurrah ! There is going to be a fight !" cried the schoolboys. Down went the cricket bats, battle dores, and ninepins, in a moment ; and the crowd surrounded the boys all agog for sönae/ittiis'.! * .-^pw »-r** . "Yw. not going to fight about a marble," said Edward. "You said you would knock me down ; why don't you come and do it since you are so clever ?" said Johnny in an aggravating tone.

The Holy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858

BY &TLVERPEIÍ. * (Continued from page 349J , , , > ¡ As Nelly thus sat weeping and hushing her wailing baby, the door opened and Bet came in. Her little stock of netted caps was much reduced, as though she had had a good sale for them that day, and as a rarity she was perfectly sober. Her manners at such times were always most kindly and winning, and she came at once towards Nelly to ask about the babe. Finding her crying, she addressed little Nance, who explained what was the matter. " " Yes, it is just what I thought would happen," she said, gently, " it is a school of sin for children, more especially for those who come new to it from an inno cent life, and brings them more often than not, to one of two things, the gaol or the grave. So if I were you, Mrs. Appleshaw, I'd get another sort of lodging, if it were only a part of a room ; such may be had, and that cheaply." " I wish I could," sobbed Nelly,, in an under tone, " but my master can get no work-leastways but a j...

CHAPTER VIII. NORMAN'S WORK IN PICADILLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858

CHAPTER VIII. NORMAN'S WORK IN PICADILLY. NORMAN had the good fortune to-make continued progress in the estimation of kif,employers, and what was of much account, he was liked and sought for in those direction! where duty took him. It soon became quite customary to see ap pended to orders for costly draperies, carpets, or decorations which would require the attendance of workmen, the words, " Send Norman to superintend;" or my lord and lady calling in Winpole str«et to choose patterns, or inspect designs generally ended their conversa tion with courtly Mr. Newbud or deferential Mr. Stopp, with, "I'll thank you when you execute the order, to send Norman ; both housekeeper and steward speak well of him." Thus raised in his masters' estimation, Norman's services were greatly valued, and his wages gradually raised to the limit assigned by Mr. Stopp, though not to that of his more conscientious and generous partner. Hence it was that excellent Mr. Newbud encouraged Miss Chloe in her liki...

Humphrey Ploughshare in Love. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858

^umpljreg ^Iong^^srt ra fok A COUNTRY BOOR is considered by some persons as a very great bore altogether ; but, for our part, we have always looked upon a " ^rasn-horn " as a very amusing wight,-and a simple rustic clown as one of the most mirth-creating of all merry Andrews. Consequently, we have been interested observers of the eccentricities of the countey bumpkin, two or three of which we will illustrate by the following brief narrative : There were few-men in his station of life who were more respected than honest old Farmer Ploughshare, who had resided not a hundred miles from Ripon, in Yorkshire, from childhood, and was admitted to the society of most of the country gentlemen in the neighbourhood*. Farmer Ploughshare had an only son, who had arrived at the mature age of forty, without having entered into the state of matrimony, and who was as rich a specimen of a country "joskin " as ever graced a dung-fork, or embellished rplougltail/ -; *. ' Humphrey Ploughshare was a simpl...

À RARE HABÍT OF PHILOSOPHY.-It is | not efojry man who can laugh up his sleeve when he happens to be out-at elbows. AXIOM POR THE " UNIVERS."-The only legitimate liberty of conscience consists in being free to confess. .*' WHY is it," asked a Frenchman of a Switzer, M that you Swiss always fight for money, while we French only fight for honour?"-" I suppose," said the Switzer, : "that each nation fights for what it most lacks." AN old gentleman, who has dabbled a$ his life in statistics, says he never heard of more than one woman who insured her life.

Spopsis of Dr. Livingstone's Travels in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858

Spopsis jof fr. fÄgstoiiis Craíiels in Swtf %íúm. Continued from page 344. STARTING from Cape Town in June, 1852, Livingstone never ceased those indefatigable exertions, which have been crowned with such unprecedented success, until he had accomplished his long cherished idea-the opening up of Central Africa-traversing it from the west to the east coast, a journey which occupied rather better than four years. We must refer our readers to the book itself, for the details of this stupendous enterprise. We have already been so led away by the subject as to gi ve longer extracts than we usually do from works of this kind ; but really, the varied consents are so interesting, that it is almost im possible to give the reader any idea of the subject without entering into some details. On the road to Kuru man, the doctor was providentially detained, and thus escaped very rough treatment at the hands of the Boers, who made a descent upon the mission station at that place, destroyed all his go...

Astronomy. A COMET; WHAT IS IT? [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858

Istrûïïonm. >-/ -o A COMET; WHAT IS IT? THE sudden visitation of a comet has engaged, and naturally so, the serious attention of all who are conversant with the sublime science of astronomy. When we consider the number of years that have been spent since its last appearance, (SOO,) the vast space j it must have run through in its fiery j course, and the regularity of its motion, we are almost lost in wonder at the omnipotence of that Being who with Iiis finger has written his word in the spacious heavens. The perfection to which the science of astronomy has been brought eau be no longer disputed. The re-appear ance of such wonderful phenomena to the naked eye, predicted for so many years hy those who have been carried to "that bourne from whence no traveller returns," must fill every sensible mind with marvellous delight ; must curb the headlong disbeliever and bid him pause. As to the fears and perplexities into which the ignorant have been fre quently thrown-they may now fully ...

Synopsis of Dr. Livingstone's Travels in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 20 November 1858

Spopb oí gr. f itótgsfone's fetós in Soníji %íxm. Continued from page 357. UN reaching Loanda, long exposure to malarious influences had nearly worn ont the Doctor's body, although unable to touch his spirit; chronie dysentery and fever had reduced him to a mere skeleton, and but for the medical assistance of Mr. Gockin, surgeon of H. M. Ship Polyphemus, and Mr. Gabriel's unwearied care, our traveller might never have returned to us. They wished him to go to St. Helena, and thence home, but he would not desert his trusty com- panions ; well knowing that from the inhospitable character of the tribes near Loanda, it wonld have been im- possible for them to return alone ; besides, from the amount of forest, rivers, and marsh they had passed through, the conviction was re- luctantly forced upon him, of the impossibility of a highway for waggons, from the territory of the Makololo to Loanda, ever being established. He therefore declined the tempting offers of his naval friends, determine...

DEAR NEPHEW :-I havn't shit ye's a lither since the last time I wrote to je'ß Jbekase we've moved from our former place of livin', and I didn't know whether « lether would reach ye's or not.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 20 November 1858

TASMANIA.. The cause of temperance is advancing in Hobart Town, and indeed, throughout the colony, not with a fitful, impetuous rush, but with a steady, resistless impulse. Our chief city, Hobart Town, possesses two fine Halls, four Rechabite Societies, a flourishing Teetotal Society, a vigorous Temperance Alliance, and above and beyond all, it has twelve or thirteen Bands of Hope, numbering about 1500 children! Strong in these resources, Hobart Town is doing battle with King Alcohol, with a prospect of ultimate victory! Nor is Launceston behind her southern rival ; the work there progresses more rapidly than in Hobart Town, for it has less to contend against. The country districts are in most cases only just taking the initiative steps in teetotalising their respective populations; and here, even at the risk of going out of the depth of the geography of your Sydney readers, I would mention the Huon, and O'Brien's Bridge, as districts ia which the people have been most active and su...

Poetry. AFFLICTING DOMESTIC OCCURRENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 20 November 1858

AFFLICTING DOMESTIC OCCURRENCE. i sat within my old ancestral hall, Once on a sweet and balmy autumn night, wind, musing, watch'd the silver moon-beams fttt Across the floor in floods of chastened light. tfell fitted was that plane for solemn thought, Its every look did other days recall, The panelling with quaint devices wrought, The armour hung around the oaken wall. My teeming fancy peopled all the gloom With figures conjured up by waking dream, When suddenly from out a distant room There came upon my ears a piercing scream. " What mean fl that shriek of woe ?" I wildly cried ? As quick into the kitchen I did dash " Ah me ! alas !" a wailing voice replied, " The TÀT0ES is completely biled to tmask:''

Revivals. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 20 November 1858

THOSE who have at heart the spiritual advancement of the human family must have rejoiced at the glorious tidings that have, from time to time, arrived from distant lands, of the copious outpouring of God's Spirit, in answer to prayer. And earnest, observant christians in these colonies, are confidently looking forward to the same good work going on as exten- sively here. The little cloud seems already rising out of the sea. Mid-day prayer meetings are being held, at which numbers gladly congregate ; but the most remarkable manifestation of the work of the Spirit has been in connection with the Wesleyan Chapel, Surry Hills, on Sunday evening last, the 14th instant, when at the prayer meeting, at the close of the service* numbers-'young aud old-* Wrestled with the angel and prevailed ; the meeting was closed with difficulty at half-past ten o'clock, numbers of those most unlikely, with tears streaming from their eyes, professed a deep earnest interest for their souls salvation.

CELERY. i THE seed of this plant must be sown in a box, six inches deep, with a layer of pebbles at the bottom, filled in with rich mould. The seed should be strewn on the surface and covered with light earth, or a smalt quantity of sand. The box must be kept under a shed, and the soil sprinkled with water night and morning. The plants may be placed out in the air as soon as they show themselves, but the box must be taken in at night, and pro- tected from frost. The bed must be pre- pared for them by first digging a trench twelve inches deep and nine inches wide. A Bmall quantity of compost must then be placed at the bottom and well stirred «p with a fork, so as to render it a rich mould. The plants may then be set in it, and those intended for early use must be^ twelve inches apart, the main crop being placed eighteen inches from one to another.
