TEMPERANCE ITEMS. NEW SOUTH WALES ALLIANCE. THE meeting of the New South Wales Alliance for the Suppression of Intem perance, adjourned from July last, was held at the School of Arts, on Thursday evening, the 13th instant. The present committee of the society having refused to call the meeting, it was summoned by the chairman, the Rev. R. Mansfield, at the request of a number of members of the Alliance.

HINTS FOR HOMES. MY WIFE'S LITTLE SUPPER PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
HINTS FOR HOMES. MY WIFE'S LITTLE SUPPER PARTIES. As I said before, my wife's little tea and supper parties became famous from the number of little nicities she intro duced on these occasions: the following are some of her dishes : PUFF PASTE. To a pound and a quarter of sifted flour rub gently in with the hand half a pound of fresh butter; mix up with half a pint of spring water; knead it well, and set it by for a quarter of a hour; then roll it out thin, lay on it in small pieces three quarters of a pound more of butter, throw on it a little flour, double it up in folds, ancl roll it out thin three times, and set it by for about an hour in a cold place. Or, if a more substantial and savoury paste is desired, use the following : PASTE FOR MEAT OR SAVOURY PIES Sift two pounds of fine flour to one and a-half of good salt butter, break it into small pieces, and wash it well in cold water; rub gently together the butter and flour, and mix it up with the yolks of three eggs, beat togeth...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. A PLEA FOR THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
% Australian =§8me Ccnitpanioft, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. PLEA FOR THE ABORIGINES. WE are often grieved at seeing recorded in the public journals accounts of outrages committed by the native blacks ; but still more are we grieved by those accounts which speak of violence against them. In the Brisbane district, quite lately, an unprovoked attack was made by a party of white men upon a .camp of natives. The ruffians, skulking under cover of the bush, fired a volley of musketry, killing one woman, and wounding several children ; and this not for any aggression on the part of those attacked, but in revenge for some wrong done by other blacks. Is not this truly monstrous 1 Is this the method to be adopted to civilize these poor benighted creatures ? Is this the way to bring them from their wretched state of mind and habits, to follow the precepts of Christianity ? How can we expect these untutored savages to believe in our friendly intentions towards them ? or how can we expect them in ...
CHARADES, &c. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
CHARADES, &o. I. My first you'll see on the sides of streams Always used by people of means. My sccond claims each busy street, "Where struggling, striving masses meet. My all to find you cannot fail Ten miles from town, by aid of rail. JACOBUS. II. Harvest-time contains my first; An opossum is oft left without my second. Deprived of my third, The simple name of Mary would lose its sweetness. My fourth is in the human eye. My whole, the dearest, sweetest spot, ? On earth to man, and which He's loth to leave, and gladsome to return. LUCY. III. My first is unpleasant by night or by day, In the ocean my second abounds ; My whole is abhorent to thoughtless and gay, But along with the grave will be found. RICHMOND. IV. Where the road lies low by the river side, Immoveably fixed in my first, A team of weary Oxen i&ood, Whilst the driver loudly cursed. And while to the oxen he cried my next, And stoutly belabour'd each, He said, unless from myfirst he escap'd. My whole he w...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR— continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, » ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CJESAR- continued. How astdiiished a British army would be now to see the soldiers who defended that country formerly, and who scarcely looked like human beings: they had neither wisdom, nor learning, nor arts, nor manufactures, so that they lived almost entirely in a state of nature. And if we think of the miserable condition they were in, we shall see how great an ad vantage it is to have been born after Christianity has improved the habits of the people, and taught them to live peace ably, and to labour for the benefit of one another. These ancient Britons did not know the true God: but they had false and ignorant priests called Druits, who taught them a great deal that was both foolish and wicKed. Amongst other dreadful customs, they frequently sacrificed men upon their altars, because they thought it would please their false gods. It is curious, that in almost every savage country, people shed the blood of their fellow-creatures as an...

KATE STAFFORD. CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
KATE STAFFORD. CHAPTER IX. Which when as that they followed had through out.'-THE FAERY QUEENE. THE Cat and Candlestick, kept by Laurence Cahill, was soon found. St. Quentin entered, and to his surprise, found the landlord to be a respectable looking man. Though the mention of his relatives seemed disagreeable to him, he answered St, Quentin's question tranfcly, and at last volunteered the fol lowing account of his uncle's disappear ance. 'A creditable family may have it's black sheep as well as another, as was shewn by my father's brother, Dick Cahill. He was a capital hand at mak ing locks, and some said as good at breaking them. However that might be, with his opening locks one day. he found a lock shut on him, and out to this colony he came, not at his own expense. 4 WeIIr he got his ticket in time. At that time blacksmiths were scarce in the oolony. He could get money for picking it up, which was quite the contrary to us at home. Hearing this, nothing would serve me, but out I ...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 427.) ONE evening soon after this, upon paying a visit to the Loxwoods, Bertha found the Nawbuds there, and later in the evening Mr. Wroxeter made an un expected call. He brought good news for Cyrus. The time seemed rapidly be coming propitious in behalf of a general movement in favour of associated capital for the purchase of land and ruinous houses in densely crowded districts, and for erecting on their sites improved dwellings for such of the industrious classes as were willing to pay for the ac commodation. Mr. Wroxeter then went on to tell bis deeply interested listeners of his having been for the last four days engaged upon the grand jury, of the con clusion, that afternoon, of the trial of a man for the murder of his wife, for whose defence some evidence was most extraor dinary. ?'* Nothing/he said, ' has hitherto given me such a graphic idea of the evils and contamination that spring from the low lodgings in which the poor a...
VOLCANO IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
VOLCANO IN AUSTRALIA. BEING weary, and all but worn out with the cares and bustle of a city life, I determined to leave it for a time to care for itself, arid starting off one lovely night in March last, by the steamer (^ollaroy, for Newcastle, I intended seek ing out some retired spot in the interior, where I might with all propriety cast off city restraints, and luxuriate in the glorious freedom of a bush life. I reached Newcastle before six o'clock in the morning, where I met with a hearty welcome from an old and dear friend who occupied »n important position in that city, and whose hospitable house has gained great notoriety as it well deserves. Sallying forth with my friend, I was pleased to find some improvements going on in the shape of buildings, and railway extension, that reached from the station close down to the water's edge. But what pleased me most were the new wharves. They appear admirably con structed, and the work most ably exe CUted by Mr. Davison, once a citizen ...

NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
NEW YORK. Four thousand dram shops closed on the Sabbath! A Sabbath Committee has been formed in New York expressly to compel the Publican's to obey the law relative to closing their houses on the Sabbath. The patrolmen were instructed from head quarters to notify every dram-shop keeper that there must be closed doors on the Sabbath, or a complaint would be lodged with the district attorney, and prosecuted to conviction. A very large proportion of the liquor dealers took the hint, and those who resisted or openly evaded the law were complained of. The lager-bier theatres generally aban doned their plays, musical entertain ments, and gambling, but kept on their sales. As a beginning, however, the movement was unexpectedly successful, upwards of four thousand did not open, and our police authorities must share with the citizens in the feeling of satis faction at the result. -New York Observer. ON THE TOP OF AN OMNIBUS.-I have often passed by that large chapel-like first floor over a t...
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 22 October 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. THE FAST CLOCK.-George III. was extremely punctual, and expected punc tuality from every one. The late Lord H. was the most punctual person who attended upon his majesty. He had an appointment one day with the king at Windsor, at twelve o'clock. On passing through the hall the^clock struck twelve, on which his lordship, in his rage at being half a minute too late, raised his cane and broke the glass of the clock. The king reminded him that he was a little beyond his time, which he excused as well as he could. At the next audi ence, the king, as he entered the room, exclaimed, 'H., H,, how came you to strike the clock ?' ' The clock struck first, your majesty.' The king laughed heartily at the grave manner in which Lord H. justified himself, the meek solemnity of the answer adding zest to tfce bon mot. PRESENCE OF MIND.-It is recorded of the late Lord Berkeley that he was sud denly awakened at night in his carriage by a highwayman, who ramming a pistol through ...
'JEANIE DEANE.' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
?JEANIE DEANE.' A ballad under the above title is just published, by H. Marsh and Co., of George-street. It is the composition of Mr. Marmaduke A. Wilson, a recent and valuable addition to the Sydney circle of musicians. The subject of the ballad is the interview of Jeanie Deane with Queen Caroline, when she intercedes for the life of her sister. The melody is very sweet; a simple pathos charac terises it, and it is very judiciously arranged for amateur performance, being easy, and within ordinary compass.

KATE STAFFORD.—Concluded. CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
KATE STAFFOR D.- Concluded. CHAPTER X. Leonato.-Neighbours, your are tedious Dogberry.-It pleases your worship to say so, but we are the poor duke's officer's; but truly for my own part, if I were as tedious as a king, I could find it in my heart to bestow it all of your worship. MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. Morley had promised that his servant's should shew St. Quentin the way to Corbie's Forest, where Graham now lived. Soon after dawn the tramp of horse's feet drew Kate to her window. The wreathes of mist were rising from the surface of the 'river, the wild-ducks leading forth their brood upon the stream, the birds chirping their morning notes, the cattle rising from their pos tures of repose, the dogs running briskly hither and thither. St. Quentin was leaning against one of the posts of the verandah, and watch ing impatiently the groom, who from the stables at some distance, was leading the horses prepared for the ride. He mounted, and Kate watched till they were out of sight. The ro...
SYDNEY VOCAL HARMONIC SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
SYDNEY VOCAL HARMONIC SOCIETY. THE fifth sacred concert of this socioty took place on the 27th ultimo, and was largely attended. Portions of Handel's oratorio,4 Judas Maccabseus,' ?were rendered in excellent style. Miss Brady fiang in her usual fine voice ; and Mrs. Cordner, an amateur, gave the air, 4 Father of Heaven,' with .great taste and skill. The chorus singing was very excellent, but we hope to hear the treble singers lead rather more powerfully, as the tenor and bass singers had a tendency to drown them. We cordially congratulate the Society on its pro gress and success. The love of good music is evidently spreading and deepening in Sydney.
QUEEN OF THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
QUEEN OF THE WEST. BY L. H. LAVENU. OH ! Erin, how sweetly thy green bosom rises, An Emerald set in the ring of the sea; Each blade of thy meadows my faithful heart prizes, Thou Queen of the West, the world's Cushla mat Cree Thy gates open wide to the poor and the stranger, There smiles hospitality, hearty and free; Thy friendship is seen in the moment of danger, And the wand'rer is welcom'd with Cushla ma Cree. Thy jons are all brave, but the battle once over, In brotherly peace with their foes they agree; And tlie roseate cheeks of thy daughters discover The soul speaking blush, that says Cushla ma Cree. Then flourish for ever, my dear native Erin, While sadly I wander, an exile from thee; And firm on thy mountains no injury fearing, May Heaven defend, its own Cushla ma Cree.
