HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 19 July 1856
HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA, ( Continued.) \ IN our last extract we gave a few facts illustrative of the appalling horrors and tragedies of Australia« life among the first settlers of this fine colony. We promised to add to them, hut on I carefully looking Over the MSS. now be fore us we fini them teeming With such profligate tales that can only shame mo rality, and considering our Îitilê work is intended chiefly for the eye and amuse rtrtnt of juvenile readers, we forbear put* ting them in type. Sufficient will have been gathered from the letters published in a previous num ber of our Magazine, to prove how hard was the eudurance, and bow cruel the treatment of the first officers to whom was given the power of the law of the land from the Governor down to th« over«* seer. , We will therefore gradually proceed with the progressive historyof thismighty empire of the antipodes, called perhaps into existence to redress the grievance of the old* Our readers will remember, perhaps* that we conc...
The Children's Model. Volney Bekner. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 19 July 1856
Volney Bekner. THIS is an anecdote selected from a ! thousand other similar ones; for, inter rogate our young sailors and1 aged sea- I men-tell them of the rough training ; and courageous daring of young Volney Bekner, and they will all reply, ' I have not been brought up more tenderly, I have suffered as much, I have a hun dred times-displayed the same courage, and yet history will know nothing of all this.' Doubtless, the noble and generous action that cut short the days of our little pilot of twelve years old, is one of very common occurrence in the life of a mariner ; but such of his companions as cati boast of having done as much as he, have not had the misfortune, or, we should rather say, the glory, of losing their lives for the preservation of that of another ;: and as it is by a glorious death that immortality is purchased, it is but just that the name of Volney Bekner should be loudly proclaimed^ while so many others remain un known. He was the son of a poor Irish sailor, ...
The Children's Model. EUDOCIA, EMPKESS OF THE EAST. Born, 406—Died, 460. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
(Ojilkm's ||tokl. EUDOCIA, EMPKESS OF THE EAST. Born, 406-Died, 460. BY M. MASSON. LEONTIUS, an Athenian philosopher, or rather, sophist, had a daughter named Athenais. She was so learned and so beautiful, that her father, at his death, thinking it would be unnecessary to leave a fortune to one so gifted, dis inherited her in favour of her brothers. But beauty and wisdom could not shield her from misfortune; for she was too young to be permitted to open a school in Athens, while those who might otherwise have aspired to her hand, seeing her without dowry, did not think of making her an offer of marriage. At her father's death, which took place about 420, Athenais had scarcely attained her fourteenth year. She had imagined that her brothers would gladly allow her to remain beneath the pater nal roof, in order that she might pursue her cherished studies ; but she was mis taken: the portionless girl did not ob tain even this favour. Her cruel rela tives sent her away with words of mock...
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
listorg of Australia. ( Continued.) rom the journals of Howard, the celebrated philanthropist, we gather numerous frightful reports of the abuses practised and at tempted, in jails and prisons about the end of the eighteenth century in Eng land. We can therefore in some measure suppose how such evils might be mul tiplied, in this colony, situated so far from the seat of authority at home. A series of disgraceful and outrageous proceedings followed here, until about the year 1800, which have been chro nicled by Collins. Among them he states, that a man named Smith, pretending to have a knowledge of farming pursuits only, was engaged by Government and made a Peace Officer at Bosehill, now Par ramatta. Another by the name of Bryant, a fisherman, detected in disposing of a large quantity of fish, was punished for it; but being a useful man, was still kept in his situation to fish for the Government. Others, when their time had expired, claimed their discharge, but the papers containing ...

DEATH AND VICTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
DEATH AND VICTORY. Alexander, having invited several of his friends and general officers to sup per, proposed a crown as a reward to him who should drink most. He who conquered on this occasion was Pro machus, who swallowed fourteen mea sures of wine. After receiving the © prize, which was a crown worth a talent, that is, about a thousand crowns, he survived this victory but three days. Of the rest of the guests, forty died of their intemperate drinking ! The end of these things is death.
SONG OF THE SPIKIT OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
SONG OF THE SPIKIT OF HOPE. " OH! mine is a rare, and wondrous spell; I have power the griefs of the heart to quell; Come listen,-I'll tell you the things I have seen, And how great the spell of my spirit hath been!" Thus the Spirit of Hope, Sang loud with glee ; As she spread her fair wings Exultingly. " I saw a sad watcher, by the bed of pain, And I flew to bring joy to her eyes again; By breathing the heart-thrilling words, that he She lov'd so well, would restored to her be!" Thus the Spirit of Hope, Sang loud with glee; As she spread her fair wings Exultingly. " I saw a small band, with my standard high raised, Striving hard to win souls from the drunkard's grave; And I circled them round with my spirit, and they Rear'd their banner aloft!-right joy fully." Thus the Spirit of Hope, Sang loud with glee; As she spread her fair wings Exultingly. "I saw a few workers, to the mass unknown Hard trying the prince of this yorld to dethrone; And I told to them the reward of the just And...
Poetry. LEAVE OFF YOUR DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
LEAVE OFF YOUR DRINK. BY JOHN RICHARDSON. LEAVE off your drink, you wretched men! And buy your children food and clothing; Nor hug the curse that drains your purse, And fills your hearts with scorn and loathing; In vain they cry aloud for bread, Ye care not how their hearts are bleeding: The wretches shiver in their bed, While ye carouse all night unheeding. The drink that makes you curse and swear, And scorn yourself and hate your neigh bour; Oh! shun the draught that sparkles fair, And turn again to honest labour: Redeem the hours you've spent in vain And warm the hearts your sins have sadden'd; And brighten'd eyes shall speak again, The joy of hearts that you have gladden'd. Leave off your drink, you silly youth! And put your money in your pocket; Or throw it in some beggar's hat, Or go and buy your love a locket: But pay not for disease and pain, Nor put your money down for sorrow; For though to-night your hearts are light, They will be heavy on the morrow. What is the pleasure ...

WESLEYAN NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL, SUSSEX STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
WESLEYAN NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL, SUSSEX STREET. A GENERAL Social Tea Meeting, or Soiree,was held in the Wesleyan Chapel, Sussex-street, on Friday evening, July 18th. Fifteen ladies very handsomely came forward and gratuitously fur nished tea for twenty each. The weather was unfortunately very wet, but notwithstanding a pouring rain, about 140 sat down to tea with forty children, who had been selected from the Sabbath School. The extra ordinary abundance and excellent ar rangement elicited from all the highest praise, while a universal cheerfulness and social feeling pervaded the whole company. The chapel was beautifully deco rated, an arch of evergreens being erected in the centre; on one side, worked with leaves and flowers, was the motto, " Social intercourse re fines and elevates the mind;" on the other, " Suffer the children to come unto me." The proceeds of the Soiree (about i:10) will be devoted exclusively to the establishment of a library in connection with the Sabbath School. ! ...
The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
Cfjt (§tes of dm. (Continued from Page 228J THEY had not proceeded far, before all at once John Murray stopped, and taking the hand which so tremblingly rested on his own, he slightly drew back and looked down upon her, as we do at things which are precious to the sight; and then he said, in a voice more choked with suppressed emotion than it had yet been, " What can we do for you, Alice ? how reward you ? how thank you ? I in particular ?" He laid an emphasis on the pronoun. Alice trembled ex ceedingly, and could not, for several , minutes, answer. At last slie strug ; gled to say, " I am more than fully repaid, Sir. A servant, so nobly treated as myself, can have nothing to complain of. The regard of your family, and the love of the children, are my best rewards.'" ; She tried to speak calmly, but her agita j tion betrayed her. j "Nonsense! the word servant has no thing to do with a case like this; you must understand-I have wanted you to un derstand me for a long time.
