Poetry. THE CHILD AT PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857
THE CHILD AT PRAYER. i Into her chamber went A little child one day, And by a chair she knelt And thus began to pray: Jesus, my eyes I close Thy form I cannot see; If thou art near me, Lord, I pray thee speak to me. A still small voice sheheardwithinhersoul, " What is it,child? I hear thee, tell me all." I pray thee, Lord, she said, That thou wilt condescend To tarry in my heart, And ever be my friend. The. path of life is dark I would not go astray ; 0, let me have thy hand To lead me in thy way. "Fear not-I will not leave thee, child, alone " She thought she felt a soft hand press her own. They tell me, Lord, that all The living pass away The aged soon must die, And even children may. 0, let my parents live Till I a woman grow; For if they die, what can A little orphan do ? "Fear not, my child-whatever ilia may come, I'll not forsake thee till I bring thee home." Her little prayer was said. And from her chamber, now, Forth passed she with the light Of heaven upon her brow. " Mothe...
Things to be thought on. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857
things to be tjrongjrt mt. As little can we prognosticate with any certainty the future influences from the present aspects of an individual. How many Demagogues, Croesuses, Conquerors, fill their own age with joy or terror, with a tumult that promises to be perennial; and in the next ages die away into insignificance and oblivion ! These are the forests of gourds, that overtop the infant cedars and aloe-treesbut, like the prophet's gourd, wither on the third day. What was it to the Pharaohs, of Egypt, in that old era, if Jethro, the j Midianitish priest and grazier accepted the Hebrew outlaw as his herdsman * Yet the Pharoahs, with all their chariots of war, are buried deep in the wrecks of time; and that Moses still lives, not among his own tribe only, but in the hearts and daily business of all civilised nations. Or figure Mahomet, in his youthful years, travelling to the horse fairs of Syria ! Nay, to take an infinitely higher instance-who has ever forgotten those lines of Tacit...
ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857
ARALtJEN. WE have received the following commu nication in reference to the progress of the above society : " I am happy to state our society haa received an impetus which bids fair lk> extend the sphere of its operations. The committee have hitherto found their etforts to attract the inhabitants to their meetings cramped by the want of a suitable building: the place in which they are at present held being used as a school-room, and also for Divine worship, consequently they have been restricted to a tea-pai ty and temperance melodies. Viewing the great amount of intoxication on the gold-fields as caused in « great measure by the want of social amuse ments and a place to which all may resort in their leisure hours, the com mittee have decided upon erecting a Temperance Hall, in which festive meetings may occasionally be held, lec tures on appropriate subjects delivered, and be used, when not otherwise en gaged, as a reading-room; chess clubs organized, library, &c. The Co...

Shadows. A SERMON BY DOW, JUN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857
A SEBMON BY DOW, JUN. TEXT.-Shadow oft the wedded life; Every boy must have a wife, Every maiden will be wed, Eager heart and simple head, Sure of happiness complete ; What a shadow! what deceit! When the nnptial link is tied, . Shadow husband! shadow bride! MY HEARERS : What shadows we are, and what shadows we °pursue ! This exclamation is old and wrinkly ; and is therefore the more worthy of our considerate regard. We are nothing but shadows in pursuit of shadows; the Deity is the substance, and life the sun that causes them. When that is set, the individual sha dows are seen no more upon the dial of the earth ; but all is one universal shade. But life itself is a mere shadow «-?«, walking shadow, according to Shakspeare-a fleeting shadow, accord ing to somebody else ; and according to some other one, it is but the shade of a shadow. Yes, friends, truly did the fishmonger remark when he said .* Life is a shad ! Oh, how it flies !" down the stream of time, iQ the fall of the year, ...
Rebiem. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 21 November 1857
lUfriefo. The Life, Experience, and Journal of NATHANIEL PJDGEON, City Mis sionary. Written by himself. THE title of the book we propose to review, affords a tolerably correct idea of the want of mental discipline j everywhere apparent in the work itself. The composition is wretched, the grouping of facts by no means good, and on almost every page you meet with the grossest violations of good taste-to say nothing of the delicacy of Christian feeling. With all its faults, however, to those who think while they read, it will prove deeply interesting. It is the first four acts of the life drama of a good and earnest man, to be read reflec tively-in some places with tears. A wise man will spurn no literary effort, however humble, if it only be truthful, for he regards literature, and especially the autobiographical depart ment of it, as an important medium of correspondence between all kinds and classes of men. Looked at in this light, the portraiture of the j Sydney City Missionary is ...
MR. ALEXANDER SMITH'S CITY POEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 5 December 1857
" QKÇT ^0|QMB^ .^n¡^xi^^c>^aé' süf or seven poems of some Joggly on Tarions subjeçjp, Jn^e ..or leja «toj^ect^. wjth city Ufe, ançL a number smaller pieces, ^vejal pl ^lach have appeared from time to tim? in periodicals of the day. The principal poem is entitledHorton." In it, but more particularly in another (and indeed in all the poems,) the poet weaves in his personal experiences of city life, especially as its every-day occurrences affect an imaginative mind--all of them have thus a personal interest. It is curious that over them all hangs a dark cloud, a cloud with a silver lining, it is true, but still a dark cloud, as if heavy with grief. He mourns for some first lost love, with touches of exquisite tenderness. Let us hope that now that another star of Love has arisen for him we shall in some future collection or poem have the chords of the harp struck in quite another key I We have no hesitation in saying that Mr. SMITH'S reputation as a poet will be increased by this wor...
MR. PIDGEON AND OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 5 December 1857
MB. PIDGEON AND OURSELVES. j MT seems our review of Mr- PIDGEON'S Journal in our last issue Has failed ¿J to satisfy that gentleman. He has sent us a rejoinder, with an earnest request for its publication, with which for several reasons we at present decline to comply. We thus act because we trust Mr. PIDGEON himself will see were we to make it a rule to insert answers to our reviews bj the authors reviewed, on mere questions of opinion, our little magazine would become simply a vehicle for' controversy and personal flattery. In the next place, we I refrain from printing the letter for Mr. P.'s own sake, believing as we do that 8 it is not calculated to present Mr. PIDGEON in his most amiable aspect. But above all we think it unjust to ourselves. We ask Mr. P. and his friends to do us the justice to read the article once more, with eyes undimmed by vanity, and say whether in their conscience they believe the writer to have been actuated by unkind feelings towards Mr. P. We fearlessl...
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. CLOSE OF NIGHT THE EIGHTH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 5 December 1857
BY T, S. ARTHUB. *. - .&lt; (Continued from page 364. j CLOSE OF NIGHT THE EIGHTH. I I TURNED toward the door, and there stood the father of Edward Hargrove. How well I remembered the broad, fine. forehead, the steady, yet mild eyes, the firm lips, the elevated superior bearing of the man I had once before seen in that place, and on a like errand. His form was slightly bent now ; his hair w*as whiter ; his eyes farther back in his head ; his face thinner and marked with deeper lines ; and there was in the whole expression of his face a touching sadness. Yet, superior , to the marks of time and suffering, an unflinching resolution was visible in his- countenance that gave to it a dignity, and extorted in voluntary respect. He stood still, after advancing a few paces, and then, his searching eyes having discovered his sonyhe said mildly, yet firmly, and with' such a strength of parental love in his voice that resistance was scarcely possible, " Edward ! Edward ! Come my son." ...

Henry Gardner. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 5 December 1857
lenrü toher. ^--T^ -- (Continued from page 8.67 J As Henry retraced his steps homeward his thoughts were busy with the events of the day ; the kind reception he had met with, and perhaps the increased attractions of Miss Green. The bells in the various churches were proclaiming the time for evening worship as he re-entered the city. He felt a momentary impulse to obey their summons, and go to church, but he recollected that he had not taken tea ; he had been to church once that day, he reasoned to himself: that was an improvement. He felt depressed, and he thought going to church would make bim feel worse, so he would take a quiet stroll round the Domain-there could be no hann in doing that. " Young Somers has been here for you this afternoon," said Mr. Tucker, as Henry seated himself at the tea table, " he says he has not seen you for a month, and he thought you were ill ; he wants to see you at his lodgings to-night particularly." "I heartily wish Somers would remain in bis lodgin...
GREYSON'S CORRESPONDENCE. (Abridged from the "Eclectic.") [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 5 December 1857
(Abridgedfrom the "Eclectic") Selections from the Correspondence of R. E. H, Greyson, Esq. Edited by the Author of " The Eclipse of Faith." In two volumes.-Long man and Co. 1857. Wa shall not attempt to remove the veil of obscurity with which Mr. öreyson's editor and most intimate friend has chosen to surround him. The dullest reader, however, of these two volumes may construct from them a very accurate idea of their writer's character, disposition, and personal habits. It would be easy to make a show of lawyer-like sagacity^ by weaving into a consistent texture all the hints concerning* Mr. G-reyson s history and occupations, which lie scattered through these " Selections from his Correspon dence;" but we leave this agreeable amusement to our readers, and pro ceed at once to speak of the profound wisdom, the subtle analysis of our mental operations, the humour, pathos, and fun, which are so marvellously intermingled in these fascinating pages. Tn the preface there is this singular ...
NIGHT THE NINTH. A. FEARFUL CONSUMMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 5 December 1857
NIGHT THE NINTH. A. FEARFUL CONSUMMATION. NEITHER Slade nor his son were present at the breakfast table on the next morning. As for myself, I did not eat with much appetite. Whether this defect arose , from the state of my mind, or the state of the food set before me, I did not stop to inquire ; but left the stifling atmosphere of the dining room in a very few moments after en tering that usually attractive place for a hungry man. A few early drinkers were already in the bar-room-men with shattered nerves and cadaverous faces, who could not begin the day's work without the stimulus of brandy or whiskey. They came in, with gliding footsteps, asked for what they wanted in low voices, drank in silence, arni departed. It was a melancholy sight to look upon. About nine o'clock the landlord made his appearance. He, too, came gliding into the bar-room, and his first act was to seize upon a brandy decanter, pour out nearly half a pint of the fiery liquid, and drink it off. How badly his han...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 19 December 1857
OUR MESSAGE, IN anticipating tmy alterations in our next year's series, we feci it a duty incumbent upon us to communicate with our subscribers as shareholders in the concern. During the past year many improvements for the Journal have suggested themselves, but none of them can be adopted without involving expense, and this in its present position would rapidly bring it to ruin. Still the opportunity offered by the commencement of another year, has, after careful and deliberate consideration, induced us to attempt the introduction of several improvements by making a slight advance in the sum charged for subscription* so small as not to be felt by any individual subscriber, yet sufficient to warrant the alterations contemplated. One thing that we have long desired, was. that of printing the work on a better paper, as this would greatly enhance its value and appearance: this we shall now be able to do. Another thing was, to put part of it in smaller type, from want of space to insert ...
