Selections. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 20 November 1858
KENTUCKY REASONING.-'* I don't be- lieve 'tis any ttse to vaccinate for small pox ;" said a backwoods Kentuckian-; "for I had a child vaccinated, and he fell óiit of the window and was killed in less than a week afterwards." SHAVING.-It is said that a pair of pretty eyes are the best mirror for a man to shave by. Probably sp ; and it is un- questionably the case that many a man has been shaved by them. MORE YANKEE FuN.-*An American paper says, there was once a man in their town so remarkably polite, that, as he passed a hen on her nest, he said, *. Don't rise, ma'am." The last scientific Americécn describes a new-milking machine, to work by a crank, illustrating the same by a 5-by-4-inch picture. It suggests the attachment of a music-box to soothe the cow and lull the flies daring the operation. A COUPLE of red-nosed old topers Were complimenting each other on their tempe* tance, when ene asked the other, " Have ,you ever seen me with more than I could carry?1" "No; but I have seen ...
PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 20 November 1858
PROTECTION, QI LTHOUGrH the policy of protective duties is as old, if not older, than JjL our great grandmother, yet the subject has been discussed anew in our ^-s public journals with a youthful zeal, as if the question was some new discovery of these after days' light. We, however, pass no opinion upon this subject as now discussed ; nevertheless, we are staunch protectionists. This, however, is a moral movement, disregardless of the balance of trade, or the nourishing of home productions. Money weighs not with us in the balance ; and the mere prosperity of wealth as the barometer of our natural success has no place in our scheme. We seek and support a moral protection-a protection from vice-from physical decrepitude-from mental prostration -from mond ruin. Our protection is to rescue the mass of our fellow beings from the fiery pestilence of alcohol-to stay the plague which sweeps over the population of our cities, and towns, and rural districts, and which blasts the prospects of...

-->--,--- i . ......-.--.-,-'.. ? '?- ?-1 ' " ;y %\t Holg jomes. BY 8ILVEBPESr. ( Continued from page 365J No one had urged Norman s removal to town more strenously than his wife had ; but the novelty of change worn off, her discontent grew again. Finding this, Norman exhibited a little of his habitual firmness. " Wife," he said, "before we left the country, none counted upon coming here more than you, You should be well, you said, aud as happy as could be. But once here, and the newness worn off, you are as uneasy as you were before, instead of being well content that I have got such an excellent situation, and such good wages. One thing is quite certain, no persuasions will lead me to return to the country, for not only am I likely to provide better for my family here, but I have many means of improving myself, which are not to be met with out of London. If you feel worse than usual let us find the cleverest doctor we can, or if you like, you and Liddy shall have a lodging a li...
MORAL OF THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
MORAL OF THE GARDEN. Nothing teaches patience like a garden. All have to wait for the fruits of the earth. You may go round and watcli the opening bud from day to day; hut it takes its own time, and you cannot urge it on faster than it Trill. If forced, it is only torn to pieces. All the best results of a garden, like those of life, are slowly but regularly progressive. Each year does a work that nothing but a year can do. " Learn to labour and to wait " is one of the best lessons of a garden. All that is good takes time, and comes only by growth.

EFFECTS OF FEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
EFFECTS OF FEAR. A Parisian physician, during his visits made in a hired fly, had received a bottle of real Jamaica rum as a sample, but found, after returning home, that he had left it in the carriage. He went to the office, and informed the manager tbat he had left a virulent poison in one of the (carriages, and desired him to prevent any of the coachmen from drinking it. Hardly had he got hack, when he was summoned in great haste to attend three of these worthies, who were suffering from the most horrible colic; and great was his difficulty in persuading them that they had only stolen some most " excellent" rum.
"FATHER DOES IT." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
"FATHER DOES IT/' Then it is no wonder if sons do it ttfo. If father reads the paper on the Sabbath, John will be likely to Want his toy-box. If father drinks a dram, or utters an oath, the little ones are in a fair Way to do the same. If father pollutes his lips with an Ugly word, it will go down in regular coursc to the barn and the kitchen. Oil the other hand, if father reads his Bible every morning and bends his knees in prayer, his children will never forget it.

CONCESSION TO THE PEACE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
CONCESSION TO THE PEACE SOCIETY. From some statements published by a contemporary on the subject of ordnance, it appears that the cost of a thirteen-inch shell, as it flies through the air, is two pounds ten shillings. Attach explosion there go two guineas, bang! The esti mated cost of firing a thirty-six inch bomb is nearly thirty pounds! These figures afford some idea of the shelling out which is necessitated by warfare. Wd hear a good deal of the bore of mon ster mortars; but it is a still more monstrous bore that we should be obliged to blow away, in making other people iniserable the enormous sums that would suffice to make ourselves jollj '.-Punch.
CHINA AND CHRISTIANITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
CHINA AND CHRISTIANITY. "The doctrine of Jesus and the doctrine of the Lord of Heaven teach the practice of virtue, and the treatment of others as ourselves. Henceforth all teachers or professors of it shall, one and all, be protected. No one peaceably following his calling without offence shall be in the least oppressed or hindered by the Chinese authorities." - ( Vide Article viii. of Treaty of Teen-Tsin, signed June, 1858 ) CHE little leaven leavening the whole lump-the drop of water congealing in the rock and splitting it to fragments-the thin end of the wedge the power of the lever which shall move the world. Such is the boast and mission of CHRISTIANITY; and nothing better reminds us of the fact than the above article in the treaty between England and China. How full of suggestion to the thoughtful is that free permission for Christianity to proclaim her truths to the Chinese race I The celestial empire is now willing to receive celestial light; the "Brother to the Sun" allows...
Poetry. 0 BED! 0 BED! DELICTOUS BED! [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
fotirir. 0 BED! 0 BED! DELICTOUS BED! Ot>ed! 0 bed! delicious bed! That heaven upon earth to the weary head; But a place that to name would be ill bred, To the head with a wakeful trouble Tis held by such a different lease, To one a place of comfort and peace, All stuffed with the down of stubble geese ; To another with only the stubble. To the happy, a first-class carriage of ease, To the land of nod, or where you please, But, alas! for the watchers and weepers, Who turn, and turn, and turn again, But turn, and turn, and turn in vain, With an anxious brain, And thoughts in a train, That does not run upon sleepers. And, O! when the blessed diurnal light Is quench'd by the providential night, To render our slumber more certain, Pity, pity the wretches that weep, For they must be wretched who cannot sleep, When Nature herself draws the curtain. The careful Betty the pillow beats, And airs the blankets and smooths the sheets, And gives the mattress k shaking; P>uf vainly Betty pe...

MAINE LAW IN ENGLAND. A canvass of the whole of the United Kingdom is being made by the " United Kingdom Alliance for the Legislative suppression of the traffic in all intoxica ting liquors."
