"THE CITY, ITS SINS AND SORROWS." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 19 December 1857
"THE CITY, ITS SINS AND SOKBOWS." ** ^(iEBP thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life." So said the wisest of men; and as wo lately heard it well remarked, the injunction is not more binding on individuals than it is on countries and kingdoms. For what is the heart of a nation ? Is it not its capital ? And just as the condition of a man, physically and morally, depends on the state of the heart, so is it with the kingdoms and empires of this world. They take their tone and complexion from respective capitals, which, like so many centres of influence, are ever operating for good or evil on the surrounding provinces. Hence the importance of looking weH to the condition of our cities and large towns; and those surely are the best patriots, and the greatest benefactors of the race, who do most to maintain and proniote a healthy action, so to speak, in those hearts of our several communities. . . The Eev. Dr. GUTHRIE, whose warm christian sympathy on behalf of th...

Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. NIGHT THE TENTH. THE CLOSING SCENE AT THE "SICKLE AND SHEAF." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 19 December 1857
Sen Pg|ts in a §ar-$krat. BT X. 8. AKTHUR. (Continued from page 400J NIGHT THE TENTH. THE CL08LNG SCENE AT THE " SICKLE AND 8HEAF." ON the day that succeeded the evening of this fearful tragedy, placards were to be seen all over the village, announcing a mass meeting at the " Sickle and Sheaf " that night. .By early twilight, the people com menced assembling. The bar, which had been closed all day, was now thrown open, and lighted; and in this. room, where so much of evil had been ongmaAed,«nconraged,and consumma ted, ftjBKard of earneet4ooking tinea were soon gathered. Among th^sui I saw the fine person of Mr. Hargrove. Joe Morgan-or rather Mr. Morgan .-was also of the number. The lat ter I would scarcely have recognised, had not some one near me called him by name. - He was well dressed, stood. erect, and, though there were many deep lines on his thoughtful counte nance, all traces of his former habits were gone. While I was observing him, he arose, and; addressing a few words to ...
THE "TEMPERANCE TIMES." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 19 December 1857
THE "TEMPEKANCE TIMES." THE first two numbers of a new tem perance paper, edited by the Ret. J. Ballantyne (price sixpence), bearing " the above title, have been forwarded to lis from Melbourne. It is designed to be the organ of the Temperance League of Victoria, we cordially welcome its advent, and wish it long life. It is well printed on good paper, and appears thoroughly to enter into the principles it advocates. To the best of our knowledge it is the only temperance paper in the Australian colonies. "We hope the friends of the cause will resolve upon making it per manent ; its doubtless large expenses can only be met by their generous support. We believe an agent will shortly be appointed for Sydney, and in the meantime Mr. Theophilus Giaffiths has a few copies from the publishers. We shall be happy to receive and transmit the names of any who may wish as subscribers, or they may do so. Direct to Mr. Harmer, Secretary to the Temperance League, 112 Eussell street, Melbourne.

The Children's Concert. 3,000 PERFORMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 19 December 1857
&J|t Cjjtlheti's Cfltutri 3,000 PERtfOR lIBB8k THE following is the copy of a letter kindly placed in our hands : a London, 10th Sept., 1857. " Dear -I have not time to write to many of the family ; but I must manage to give you a brief account of a concert I heard a few days since a concert of a very remarkable kind. ** A gentleman, the Rev. Mr. Curwen, has arranged a new method of teaching singing, not to grown people who wish to sing skilfully, but to school children who desire to sing simple pieces in good tune and time, sufficiently well for church or for home. " There are now 3000 children learning on this system in London, besides many thousands in other parts of England. At Sydenham, near London, is the Crystal Palace, the largest building in England, and this was converted into a concert room last Wednesday, in order that all the 3000 children might sing together. " It was one of the prettiest sights ever seen. There were about 1600 boys, and 1400 girls, from seven ...

CLARENCE STREET. To the Editor of the Australian Band of Hope Journal. SIR, Since the opening of the lec ture room in Clarence-street, in this city, we have continued to hold our weekly meetings for the benefit of the juvenile portion of the community, and they have been pleasingly enter tained with speeches, lectures, and recitations on a variety of subjects.

The Bobs' Bit. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 19 December 1857
Cbe IOJJS' lit. OH ! how I love to watch the lovely birds, carrying the hay, and straw, and moss, and feathers to build their " bonny " little nests! I hope that none of my young friends will ever be found amongst the robbers of birds' nests. Many years ago, a lady was taking a country walk, with her daughter, when they met a boy who had in his hand a pretty nest, containing five beautiful speckled eggs. This nest th&lt;? naughty boy had just stolen from a tree close by, and it was indeed sad to bear the distressing cries of'the poor little birds. The lady remonstrated with the boy, and urged him to return the stolen nest; the little girl pleaded, and even the dog seemed as if he would have said, " / should have been ashamed to use the poor birds so cruelly," I am sorry to say that the boy was a hard-hearted fellow, and refused to replace the nest. The poor little sor rowing birds never got their pretty eggs back again. What became of the boy ? Many years after, a young man ...
