The Children's Portfolio. THE ISLAND CAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
Cjjt (Hjjilkm's Uortfalto. THE ISLAND CAYE. ONE lovely mofning last week, when the sun shone brightly in the cloudless sky, and tinged with gold the varied land scapes of Sydney's unrivalled harbour, a little fairy-like skiff, with her snow-white sails distended by the fresh north-east wind, flew swiftly as a stormy petrel over the white crested waves. Little did those three sunny-hearted boys who were seated in the boat care for the clouds of spray which occasionally dashed Over them, or for the huge rolliug waves which threatened to engulph their frail tiny bark ; fearless were they us ocean birds, and as merry and joyous as fearless. Pilot H. sat at the helm, and carefully steered the little skiff through the rough waters, while a heaven-like glow warmed his heart as he viewed the smiling faces of the three dear boys whose voices were now united in a hymn of praise to God ; and as he with grateful feelings remem bered that a few evenings before he had seen the mighty power and go...
CURE FOR WIFE BEATING. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
CURE FOR WIFE BEATING. A WOMAN in one of the towns in New Hampshire, who had been ill-used by her husband, on finding him asleep one day, quietly sewed him up in the bed clothes, and then gave him a tremendous thrashing. "FREVER judge from manners," says Lord Byron, " for I once had rny pocket picked by the civilest gentleman I ever met with." THE number of letters conveyed between Great Britain and Australia last year was 1,467,000, and between Great Britain and East India and China, 1,532,000. A CRINOLINE JAM.-To make an ex cellent jam-squeeze six or eight women now-a-days into a common stage coach. LIES FLY.-The Chinese proverb says a lie has no leg and cannot stand, but it has wings, and can fly far and wide. MR. CURRAN was engaged in a legal engagement. Behind him stood his col league, a gentleman whose person WDS tall and slender, and WHG had originally intended to take orders. The judge observing that the case under discussion involved a question of ecclesiastical la\T, Curra...
The Holy Homes. CHAPTER IX. THE JOURNEY INTO KENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
%\t Holg Pomes. BY 8ILVEBPEN. (Continued from page 381.) CHAPTER IX. THE JOURNEY INTO KENT. CYHUS LOXWOOD believed in the great truth, that beauty and utility, when com bined, act favourably on each other. Thus, in devoting life and genius to the elaboration of a class of architecture, which, including the principles of cheapness, easiness of construction, and durability, would meet the crying need for a better house-accommodation in towns, he saw that, after the wants of the lowest social section were met-that section which had unfortunately to learn the worth of privacy, decency, and clean liness-beauty must, in some measure, aid utility; or failure Would be the result. In the first and widest section, there was to absolutely create the very conditions themselves, in which beauty could in the least degree take root and thrive; whilst in the class beyond, that of the artizan, it was necessary to minister to, to elevate, to increase tastes more or less existing. Viewed in this way, ...
On Bathing. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
BY DK. BELL, CAMPBELLTOWN. As the season' has now arrived when many of our fellow-colonists are indulging in the healthful and delightful recreation of bathing, I will make a few remarks on bathing in gene ral, which may be of some advantage to those who do not understand the bene ficial influence of a practice some are now going to adf>pt, but which many have for years bee®, accustomed to. is not necessary to go into detail about who were the first to adopt the custom of bathing; suffice it, that it is of ancient origin, and with some nations vast sums were expended on the forma tion and keeping in proper order, all kinds of baths. Of the nations who were most forward in the work, I may mention the Romans, Egyptians, Grecians, Turks, and others. It is scarcely necessary to enter on a definition of the word bathing. However, I may as well state that it means an immersion of the body, or part of it, in any medium different from that in which it is generally placed, and any substan...
Synopsis of Dr. Livingstone's Travels in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 4 December 1858
>mwpsis of Jr. fj&ragste's Crabels in Soufjj ^frtnr. Concluded from page 377. AT thft confluence of the Chobe, the Zambesi is very wide and deep. Strong easterly winds raise such large waves on its waters, as to threaten to swamp the canoes. From Kalaia-a large island, where the chief Sekote lies buried, in a grave ornamented with seventy large elephants' tusks-they intended to pursue a north-east course, but before proceeding further, devoted some time, in order to visit the extraordinary falls of Victoria, called by the natives Mosuatunya, literally " smoke does sound there." After twenty minutes sail from Kalai, they observed, at a distance of six miles, live mighty columns of smoke, rising till they seemed to touch the clouds, exactly as when large tracts of grass are burned, being white below and becoming darker as they ascend. The whole scene as they approached nearer, was one of extreme beauty. The enormous baobob tree, graceful palms, silvery mohononos resembling ...

WE ARE SEVEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
WE ARE SEVEN. I met a little cottage girl, She was eight years old, she said ; Her hair was thick with many a eurl That cluster'd rouud her head. She had a rustic, woodland air, And she was wildly clad ; Htr face was fair, yea, very fair Her beauty made me glad. ' Sisters and brothers, little maid, How many may you be V 1 How many ? seven in allshe said, And wondering look'd at me. ' And where are they, I pray you tell ?' She answered,' Seven are we; And tmo of us at Conway dwell, 4bd two are gone to sea. y vtfwo of us in the churchyard lie, My sister and my brother; And in the churchyard cottage I Dwell near them with my mother.' ' You say that two at Conway dwell, And two are gone to sea, Yet you are seven ; I pray you tell, Sweet maid, how this may be? Then did the little maid reply, ' Seven boys and girls are we: Two of us in the churchyard lie, Beneath the churchyard tree. ' You run about my little maid, Your limbs they are alive ; If two are in the churchyard laid, Then ye are...
Charades. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
I. My first and my second, a wager I'll bet You and I every day are striving to get; My third not far from your door will be found Either above or under the ground, And my whole, if you'll put together the the same, You will find is a great modern traveller's name. E. K. n. In my first if you try it I'm sure you'll agree, That your best and most useful of friends you will see; My next is a letter egotistical men Are always abusing-my third is a glen, And my whole is a township away in the north, As I guess some three or four hundred miles off. E. K. in. In my first, an old pastime, for sportsmen you'll view, When with hounds they assemble 'mid dawn's early dew; A something that's definite is shown by my second, My third, quite an easy fit always is reckon'd; With my whole at this season, some merry time passes, With happy young lads, and bright smil ing lasses; In one joyous cluster they mingle around, For only with cheerfulness I'm to be found.

A PETITION WHICH OFGHT BE ANSWERED. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
A PETITION WHtCH OFGHT BE ANSWERED. "We, the undersigned, who have to carry or protect the property of our mas ters, humbly ask for a drink of water. During the hot summer months we fre quently suffer great pain from the want of this. A few hundred troughs fixed in . suitable places, with a good supply of water, either from the pumps or the waterworks, would help us on many a weary journey. Kind words and kind actions are never lost upon us, and if our petition is granted, we will try to be better servants than ever. Gladden our hearts, then, with a drink of cold water ! " THE HORSES, DONKEYS, AND DOGS." F AN eccentric banker was eying with suspicious vision a bill presented tp him for discount. " You need not fear" said the palpitating customer; "one of the parties keeps his carriage."-" Ay," rejoined the banker, " I shall be glad if he keeps his feet." AN old lady, sleeping during divine. service in a church in Liverpool, let fall her Bible, with clasps to it; and the noise partly...

solutions. FRIGHTFULLY MYSTERIOUS. 1 A GENTLEMAN sojourning at a fashion able watering-place hotel, and whose sleeping apartment was next to that of two young ladies, overheard the following conversation one morning:-" My dear, I cannot find my bones; and how can 1 go down to breakfast ? I shall look as if I had fallen to pieces."-" I will lend you my skeleton, dear, if it will fit you." -" Oh, thank you, how kind ! -yes, ex actly." Only one young lady appeared at breakfast. What was the condition of the one who lent the skeleton ?
TAKEN AT HIS WORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
TAKEN AT HIS WORD. A French savan, of excellent heart, but somewhat eccentric, lately discharged a servant. Another presented himself, and when matters were nearly settled, the gentieman said-"Listen, my good fellow. I am not unfair, but I hate to waste words. You must understand me at a hint. For example, when I say,' Give me my razors, to shave me,' you must bring me at the same time warm water, soap, a napkin-in fact, all the accessories of the toilet. And so with everything." i'or some time all went on to a marvel, and our friend congratulated himself on having so excellent a servant. One day he felt indisposed, and told his man to go for the doctor, who lived a few steps off. One hour, two hours passed away. No physician, no servant. Finally, at the end of three hours, back came the servant. " Well, sir!" said his master, " what made you so long a time gone for the doctor, who lives close at hand?" " Ma foi " he replied, " monsieur remem bers that when he gives me an order, I m...
On Bathing. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
©K ^atjring. BELL, CAMPBELLTOWN. Concluded from page 388. The hip and foot bath, so called from their application to these parts, are very useful in their way, and valuable reme dies when their application is properly understood. With respect to the diseases for. which cold bathing is serviceable, I may as well point out before entering on that subject, certain conditions of the system in which it is either inadmissable, or its employment must be cautiously and very carefully entered on. 1. The periods of infancy and old age *are less applicable for its use, than those of youth and manhood. 2. During pregnancy and the men itrual periods, it should be either omitted or used with great caution. 3. It is inadmissable in very robust persons, who have a tendency to local congestions, fullness of blood to the head, predisposed to apoplexy, or who suffer from spitting of blood. 4. It should be avoided by persons with disease of the heart, and with whom the circulation is feeble, and who ar...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
CHE close of another year offers a fitting opportunity for saying a word to our friends. We doubt not that they share with us in feelings of satisfaction that the waters of oblivion have not closed over the BAND OF HOPS JOURNAL during the current year. Of the usefulness of the publication we have had most abundant evidence; entertaining and instructive reading has been systematically circulated over the colony, exerting its influence upon thousands of homes. Against one custom fraught with evil it has raised a voice, and always in the tones of kindness and persuasion ; still, it has by no means been devoted to this one subject; every other that came within the province of a home journal, has shared its pages. The JOURNAL, during the^ year, has been the means, more or less, of calling into existence those societies for promoting the best iuterests of youth in various parts of the colony Bands of Hope, or Juvenile Literary Institutions, based upon temperance principles. Numbers of fac...
Poetry. "I THOUGHT SOME ONE MIGHT HEAR." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
" I THOUGHT SOME ONE MIGHT HEAR." I knew that I was blushing As he leant upon my chair; I felt my pale cheek flushing As he breathed his ardent prayer; I heard him sottly sighing As he whispere'd in my ear, But I dared not risk replying, For I fear'd some one might hear. He took my hand and press'd it A moment in his own ; He vow'd a» he caress'd it His heart was mine alone; I met his earnest glaDCes, I knew that he was dear. But I turn'd from his advances, For I fear'd some one might hear. He heeded none around him, He watch'd my crimson cheek, He own'd the spell that bound him, And pled with me to speak; I telt my dark eye filling, And brush'd awav a tear, But I check'd niy julse, wild thrilling, For I fear'd some one might hear. He turn'd-I thought him going; Concealment thea were vain I felt ray warm tears flowing, And call'd him back again; Then aa he bent above me, Dispell'd was every fear I gently said " I'll love thee !" Aud forgot some one might hear.

The Holy Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 18 December 1858
BY 8ILVERPEN. (Continued from page 398.) ON arriving at the village inn-a bowery, rustic old place-the major and Cyrus found Crab in the best of humours, and the viands of the larder of so excel lent a kind, as t.o leave the wine and fowl still in the recesses of the haversack. Accordingly, partaking of this meal with great zest, they were at its conclusion joined by their companion, and went their way. The walk was as beautiful as Mr. Verdun had described it-winding by the side of more than one silvery rivulet that, brawling over mossy stones, was bordered by the countless liowers of spring. By-and-bye, where the most picturesque of these little streams bent round and formed an arc, they came in sight of the gables and turrets of the old school-house, which looked as though hall-buried amidst a mass of woodland and orchard-trues. A vast gar.ien, broken into portions by wide patches of unshaven lawn, and by vast evergreen bushes clipped into the form of peacocks, tables, covered sea...
