"ONCE I WAS PURE." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

"ONCE I WAS PURE. 0 ! the snow, the beautiful snow, Filling the sky and earth below; Over the housetops, over the Street, Over the heads of the people you meet; Dancing, Flirting, Skimmering along, Beautiful snow ! it can do nothing wrong, Flying to kiss a fair lady's cheek; Clinging to lips in a frolicksome freak ; Beautiful snow from the heavens above, Pure as an angel, and fickle as love! O ! the snow the beautiful snow ! How the flakes gather and laugh as they go! Whirling about in its maddening fun, It plays hi its glee with every one, Chasing, Laughing, Hurrying by, It lights up the-face, and it sparkles the eye ; And even the dogs, with a bark and a bound, Snap at the crystals that eddy around; The town is alive, and its heart in glow, To welcome the coming of the beautiful snow. How the wild crowd goes swazing along, Hailing each other with humour and song 1 How the gay sledges, like meteors flash by, Bright for the moment, then lost to to the eye: Ringing, Swinging, Dashing...

GOOD NEWS FROM HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

GOOD NEWS FROM H;OME. Good news from home, good news for me Has come across the deep blue sea, From friends that I have left in tears From friends that I've not seen for years. And since we parted long ago, My life has been a scene of woe, But now a joyful hour has come. For I havtt heard good news from Home. No Father's near to guide me now; No Mother's tears to sooth my brow; No fcister's voice falls on mine ear ; No Brothers smile to give me cheer. But though I wander far away, My heart is full of joy to-day, For friends across the Ocean's foam Have sent to me good news from Horn#.

THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER XXIV. BERTHA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

THE HOLY HOMES. SILVERFEN. (Continued from page 402.) CHAPTER XXIV. BERTHA. MAGGY nursed Bertha very tenderly through several weeks of severe indispo sition, during which nothing was heard of the Yorks. Bertha, indeed, saw no body, and heard but little of her friends generally; for most of them were out of town, or incidentally away from home. She was rather glad of this than other wise ; it enabled her to still more ef fectually conceal the deep shadows of poverty through which she had to strug gle, for whilst her pen thus lay idle, the fountain of supply was necessarily stayed. With the barest return to con valescence she had to resume it, and, ?working when she best could, in this way made progress. One day Mrs. Austin called, and herself broached the subject of the Yorks. 4 The abrupt discontinuation of Mr. York's story,' she said, ' has been a sad loss and perplexity to us, more particu larly as the last few chapters were so much more powerful than the first. It was curious too...

COWANDA, THE VETERAN'S GRANT. [REVIEW.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

CO WANDA, THE VETERAN'S GRANT. [REVIEW. FEW and far between are Australian literary productions; it is therefore with a feeling of greater interest that we welcome any addition to the small col lection. The above-named tale has recently been published by Mr. Clarke, and is written by the authoress of Gertrude, which was issued some months since from the same house. The work before us bears many marks of a skilful hand, but we regret the fair writer did not fill up the sketches she has made more fully. She leaves many scenes half told, and breaks abruptly from incidents capable of working out to a degree that had proved more satis factory to the general reader. A pleas ing, pious, and moral tone pervades the work throughout. The characters are well drawn; take for instance this description of Aunt Nancy: ' She was such an every-day character, only unusual in the excess of her home ly worth,-not the remotest selfishness in her composition. A peculiarly square, flat face, of a pale hue...

OUR GUNNERS SHOT. AN INCIDENT OF OCEAN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

OUR GUNNERS SHOT. AN INCIDENT OP OCEAN LIFE. OUR noble ship lay at anchor in the bay of Tangier, a fortified town in the extreme north-west of Africa. The day had been extremely mild, with a gentle breeze sweeping to the northward and westward, but long before the close of the .afternoon the sea beeze died away, and one of those sultry, oven-like, at mospheric breathings came from the great sunburnt Sahara. Half-an-hour before sundown the cap tain gave the order to the boatswain to call the hands to go in swimming; and in less than five minutes the forms of our tars were seen leaping from the gang ways, the ports, the nettings,, bowsprits, and some, more venturesome, took their leap from the arms of the lower yard. One of the studding-sails had been low ered into the water, with its corners sus pended from the mainyard-arm and the swinging boom, and into this some of the swimmers made their way. Among those who seemed to be enjoy ing the sport most heartily were two of the boys. Tho...

PROFESSOR MILLER AND THE FREE CHURCH ASSEMBLY ON TEETOTAL ABSTINENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

PROFESSOR MILLER AND THE FREE CHURCH ASSEMBLY ON TEETOTAL ABSTINENCE. A MORE remarkable speech, consider ing its occasion, the parties to whom and by whom it was delivered, has scarcely been uttered than that of Professor Mil ler, before the evening assembly of the Free Church of Scotland. Our space only allows us to give a few passages, which we take from the 4 Scottish Week ly Journal,' where the whole is given at length. In presenting their report of their Committee on Temperance, of which the learned and eloquent Professor had been the convener, he moved : 4 That they rejoice in the present ap pointment of the Royal Commission into the working of the Forbes Mackenzie Act, in the confident expectation that the result will only be to secure farther re strictions in the same beneficial direc tion.' He then proceeded with the following challenge to the rev. fathers and elders : 4 Obnoxious as he might be to some of his rev. fathers and brethren by being a teetotaller, he was yet goi...

FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

?FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. AN Israelite witness at the Court of Requests being asked his Christian name, naively replied,4 I have no Christian name! I'm a Hebrew.' WHAT are the most unsociable things in the world?-Milestones-you never see two of them together, A MAN advertises for . a competent person to undertake the sale of a new medicine;' and adds that 'it will bt) found profitable to the undertaker.'

LECTURE ON POETERY BY CHAS. HARPUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 8 October 1859

LECTURE Ott POETRY BY CHAS. HARPUR. I A lecture was delivered by this gentleman at the School of Arts, on the evening of Thursday, the 29th ultimo. In his introduction, the lecturer remarked ' In the following discourse I propose-I, To define the nature and determine the office of Poetry, and at the same time rebut certain objec tions as to the character of its influence.-II, To shew that it is heaven-the ideal- is as much a part of man's nature as the sky is of the outward world; and that as man is progressive, so of course is Poetry.-III, To indicate, by following out the drift of our visionary tendencies, the manner in which I conceive Poetry to be related to Prophecy.-And, IV, To endeavor to explicate, in the briefest manner possible, the real, or essential difference between Poetry and Prose.' Our space precludes further remarks; the lecture is published entire in the Empire, of Monday, the 3rd instant.

AYAH AND CHJLD, OR MEMORIAL WELLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859

AYAH AND CHJLD, OR MEMORIAL WELLS. THE fidelity which has marked the conduct of the native domestics during the late Indian mutiny, calls for Britain's thankfulness to God. Not a few * ayahs' and ' bearers' risked their lives in en deavouring to save the little ones in their charge. In one memorable instance, a domestic carried a sweet little child for several miles through a disturbed district, to the nearest English fort. The task was an arduous and dangerous one, and the lives of both had nearly been sacrificed. At length they reached the English station. There was great joy on receiving the little prattler safe and sound. A liberal reward was cheerfully offered. But no J oh, hear it, ye fathers and mothers ! The nohle-minded deliverer refused every offer, and would not receive even a single farthing! 4 Dig a well! Dig a well !* said the faithful creature, and then left the station. In the hot country of India, one of the hest memorials is ' the digging of a well,' by which the w...

THE CRADLE SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859

! THE CRADLE SONG. WHAT is the little one thinking about? Very wonderful things, no doubt: Unwritten history I Unfathom'd mystery! Yet he laughs and cries, and eats and drinks, And knuckles and crows, and nods and winks, As if his head were as full of kinks, And curious riddles as any sphinx! Warp'd by colic and wet by tears, Punctured by pins and tortured by fears, Our little nephew will lose two years ; And he'll never know Where the summers go He need not laugh for he'll find it so. Who can tell what a baby thinks ? Who can follow the gossamer links By which the mannikin feels his way Out from the shore of the great unknown, Blind, and wailing, and alone, Into the light of day - Out from the shore of the unknown sea, Tossing in pitiful agony Of the unknown sea that reels and rolls, Speak'd with the barques of little souls Barques that were launched on the other side, And slipp'd from Heaven on an ebbing tide ? What does he think of his mother's eyes ? What does he think of his mo...

REV. L. E. THRELKELD [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859

REV. L. E. THRELKELD. « THIS gentleman, a colonist for forty years, and a minister for fifty years, has died suddenly. On Sunday, the 9th inst., after having twice preached, as usual, Mr. Tbrelkeld complained of illness, and a doctor was called in, but no change was appar ent, and he retted ,to rest as usual. A daughter of the rev. gentleman who was watching, waB alarmed by a groan, and reached her father's side to find him insensible and receive his last sigh. His loss will be severely felt, for he spent his time amongst those who from their lonely positions will miss him much-the sick in the hospital, and the prisoner in his cell, were the objects of his constant attention. His principles were most liberal; he would speak in the highest terms of the Sisters of Charity, and always asserted the civil rights of the Roman Catholic citizens. Mr. Threlkeld was sent to the South Seas by the London Missionary Society in 1815, and after a brief stay in Sydney, proceeded to the Society Isla...

CHAPTER XXV. ANGUS IN HERBA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859

CHAPTER XXY. ANGUS IN HERBA. THE death of Mrs. Norman affected none more deeply than it did her hus band. He had loved her very tenderly, for her beauty in her young married days had been a charming thing, though nothing so extraordinary or radiant as that of Liddy; and her gentleness of temper had been another fountain of love to the austere, self-reliant man. This virtue had had however its weak side ; it became allied to imbecility when it had to govern or guide; and this fail ing, together with the fretfulness that impaired health begot, had done some what towards lessening his first strength of attachment ; still behind was much that was deep and sterling, and he felt her death proportionately. There were other causes too, that made his grief severer ; indulging and self indulgent as she was-she had been in some senses a guardian to Liddy, such as no one else could be; and Norman saw at a glance the new responsibility that was his. "What he should do with his beautiful child he...

Commit your cares unto the Lord; he will preserve our pet lamb,' commenced the husband in a tender voice, but he was prevented from saying more by the entrance of the object of the mother's so licitude. And, in truth, Lester Eshton was a boy worthy to inspire the utmost anxiety in a mother's heart. Not hand some, not even goodlooking, he yet en gaged the interest of all who knew him. Those deep earnest eyes did not betoken more thought than the brain possessed ; that massive brow did not tell a false tale of intellect, for now, at the age of fifteen years, that intellect was plainly shewn in his language. ...

THE POWER OF GOODNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859

THE POWER OF GOODNESS. As sheenter'd our cottage she came like asunbeam, And lighten'd each corner, so long cold and drear, Ev'ry nook of our hearts felt her genial soul gleam Ev'ry eye look'd a welcome, though dim with a tear. For she came in our sickness, she came in our sorrow, And heal'd the heart as she bound, up the limb; She fed us, and clad us, and taught us to borrow A light from the Page that never grows dim. But for her, and her teaching, my end. might have been, In the darkness of doubt, in an infidel gloom, Doubly dying, doubly curs'd, with nought to redeem, For the troubles of life, but the horrors of doom. In my ' right mind * my calling I now can pursue, And if toil is my portion, there's comfort at home For the . friend's cup' is broken, nor will I renew The dark Past, which the Present alone can atone.
