Band of Hope Intelligence. BATHURST STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
Viitub of |)ope JiMigeiwt BATHURST STREET. i ACCORDING to our promise in last num ber, we proceed to give some further particulars of the late anniversary. A tasteful display of evergreens and mottos, neatly executed by elder members of the Band of Hope, gave the room quite a cheerful appearance, in which all present seemed to parti cipate. The public tea was rather thinly attended, but a good number came afterwards to the meeting. At © a quarter-past seven o'clock, the Rev. -James Yolier having opened the meet ing, the following report was read by the secretary : " In presenting the first Annual Re port of the Bathurst-street Band of Hope, a brief allusion to the circumstances connected with its origin, may not be without interest. " It is but candid to own that this was not, as some have supposed, the first es tablished in Sydney. The Rev. Mr. Sharpe had started the Woolloomooloo | Band of Hope some months previously ; ' but as that was simply a juvenile teetotal i society, their ...
Prize Essay. WATER, AND ITS ADVANTAGES TO MANKIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 2 August 1856
§BM. (Continued from Page 230.J WATER, AND ITS ADVANTAGES TO MANKIND. BY " DUSTY MILLER." Secondly, Watei is used for culinary purposes. Under this head may be included its use as a purifier. Man, when wild, throws his food on the fire to cook without put ting anything to shelter it from the too great heat or from the dirt it may come in contact with; but when he has made a step or two on the road to civilisation, he makes a vessel of some kind capable of withstanding the fire for a time, in which he puts his meat,-but this wears out, and he, not being very expert in the manufacture of cooking utensils, naturally tries to find out something that will pre serve or make them last longer. Then it is that water presents itself to his mind, it being the opposite of fire, though capable of attaining great heat. After trying it he finds that water pre serves his vessel, gives a nicer flavour to some kinds of meat, and is by far a more economical mode of cooking his food than by throwing it...

Selections. ALCOHOL IN WARM CLIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
I -- I ALCOHOL IN WARM CLIMATES. I T THE intimate acquaintance of Sir Charles Napier with the habits and wants of the Indian soldier can be doubted by no one ; and the following is his testimony in favour of the Absti nence System (delivered in his own characteristic manner) as contained in his address to the 96th regiment, when he reviewed it at Calcutta on the 11th of May, 1849. " Let me give you a bit of advice-that is, don't drink. I know young men do not think much about advice from old men. They put their tongue in their cheek, and think that they know a good deal better than the old cove that is giving them advice. | But let me tell you that you are come to a country where, if you drink, you are dead men : if you be sober and steady, you'll get on well ; but if you drink, you're done for. You will be either invalided or die. I knew two regiments in this country, one drank, the other did'nt drink, the one that did'nt drink is one of the finest regi ments, and has got on as wel...
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
Itstürg of |¿táták (Continued from p, 234J N I79I, Governor Phillip KP*^earing the evil results that aÊL wou^ attend this colony, jjj^ Wm y¡^ if ^e population were con .^.^L^,.^. fined exclusively to crimi nals, impressed the necessity on the home Government of sending out free families to settle, offering grants of land to all who desired to emigrate. He also recommended free grants to all well disposed emancipated prisoners. In this year the first free settler ar rived, a German, by the name of Philip Schöeffu. In 1792, Governor Phillip returned home, leaving the colony under the management of Lieutenant Grose. In this year, some more decided steps were taken towards the proper celebra tion of public worship. A temporary church was commenced, and completed in August, 1793. It is to be regretted, however, that the clergyman connected with it should have induced the Governor to issue an edict, enforcing attendance to his discourses, on the pain of losing 3 lbs. of flour from his rat...

The Glass of Gin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
%\t êkm of êk , ( Concluded from page 244. ) FEELING- that to part with Pinch was impossible, Alice, accompanied by her landlord, set off in search of him ; but though they walked about till nearly midnight, nothing could be either heard of the dog or Mary, not even at the wretched woman's lodgings, "as she had been out two days and a night, having with her the last thing she possessed, an old grey cloak." When she returned at midnight, worn and overcome, Alice's heart leapt up with joy as she opened her chamber door. A charming bright little fire burnt in the grate, some coffee steamed on the hob, the round table was set out with cups and saucers, and potted meat, and cake, and jam, and a large bouquet, and two little letters, red with waxen kisses. And as she looked, only for one moment, the good old servant folded her in her arms, and led her to the fire. " .Dear heart! dear heart!" said Molly, " only to think that dear old master could do such a thing." " To think me sinning in ...
THE WINE OF EDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
THE WINE OF EDEN. DROPS of crystal water, O ! tho summer's showers, Gemming with a thousand pearls Blossom in the bowers ; While the sun is resting On a couch of clouds, Drops of crystal water Trickle down in crowds. Wine's a friend of sorrow, Water's friend is glee ; Drops of crystal water-they Are wine enough for me. From the waving king-cup Bees are drinking dew, Butterflies are waiting To taste a little too ; The cricket on the lady-bird Makes a passing call, Drops of crystal water Furnish drink for all. Wine's, &c. The lily and the daisy, Sun-burnt in the field, Had no parasol of leaves Their purity to shield ; So sunlight dropped its cloud-veil, And rain began to fall, Drops of crystal water Soon revived them all. Wine's, &c. Corn that gilded acres, The clover, and the grass, Cowslips that the children Gather as they pass ; The primrose in the green lane, The berry on the sloe, Drops of crystal water Cause them all to grow. Wine's, &c. Drops of crystal ...

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. "A FRIEMD," who wrote respecting the Pitt street Band of Hope, cannot be replied to through our magazine. According to rule, we should have the name of the party sending. We may hare an opportunity ere long of stating our opinion upon the subject mentioned. M. M.-We can send you the back numbers if you wish it. Send the order direct. Our friends have probably noticed the improved appearance of our magazine. We hope that the errors in the printing, and the miserable appearance it has sometimes made will not again occur. We have felt that they have been very lenient in bearing with our infirmities, for out of nearly 800 subscribers, scarcely one has discontinued taking it. To those who are interested in our progress, we would say that we are steadily and surely advancing. We would take this opportunity of pointedly asking them to obtain for us a still larger circulation. Let them each, at least, get one friend to become a subscriber, and supply us with the a...
COME AND SIGN! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
COME AND SIGN! I ASK'D the blooming, sportive boy, " Say, will you come and sign ? Health beams within thy glist'ning eye, Now is the golden time ! " But " No," he cried, and shook his head, " Now is the time for play ; I cannot, will not, yet," he said, And bounded on his way. I ask'd him, when a youth ; but then He stopp'd me with alarm, " Nay leave the pledge for grave old men ; A drop can do no harm ! Youth is the time for mirth and joy, I'll live thus while I can ; Your sober scheme perchance I'll try When I am quite a man." I ask'd him when of middle age How gleamed his fiery eye ! Such fearful signs his frame betray'd ; They gave a full reply : For many years had firmly tix'd The tyrant's iron chain ; His all for drink he'd madly risk'd, To ask him now was vain. I ask'd him next an aged man, A miserable form ; His course of life had nearly run, Each short-lived pleasure gone : "Alas ! " he cried, in accents wild, With anguish on his brow, " Would I had signed when a child I c...
