FLATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
FLATTERY. A bear, who was taking his lesson in dancing, and who believed that he would not fail to be admired, paused for a moment on his hind legs to ask an ape how he lilied his dancing. "To say the truth, friend, you dance very ! badly ; you are too heavy." " But ¡ surely I do not want grace, and what you call heaviness, may it not be dignity ¡ of carriage ? " and Bruin commenced his practice with somewhat of an offended air. " Bravo," cried an ass, who was passing by, " Such light and graceful dancing I have never seen ; it is perfection." But this unqualified praise was too much even for the self love of the bear, and startled by it \ into modesty, he said within himself, : " While the ape only censured, I doubted, but now that the ass praises i me, I am sure that I must dance J horridly." Friends, suffer a word of advice ! When good taste censures, hesitate, doubt ; when folly applauds, jj be certain you are all in the wrong. ; READING.-The amusement of read ! ing is among the...
New Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
p» »rt Review of Dr. Fullerton's Tract on the National Duty of Christian States. By W. MAKKS, Kiama. THOUGH it does not fall in with the scope of our little magazine to enter upon the controversy to which the above publication is devoted, we are glad (as we have before stated) to see any one thinking and writing about it ; and the earnestness with which Mr. Marks writes, and the thorough inde pendence with which he expresses his sentiments, suggestive as they are of many things worthy of consideration in the Christian world, will no doubt induce all who commence the perusal of his pamphlet, to go to the end of it.
A WARNING VOICE, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
A WARNING VOICE, BT THE KEV. J. ANGEL JAMES, BIRMINGHAM. When will the ministers and members of our churches begin generally to in quire whether it is not expedient for them, if not for their sakes, yet for the sake of the community, to discoun 1 tenance altogether the use of intoxi cating liquors ? When it is considered that one-half of the insanity, two-thirds of the abject poverty, and three-fourths of the crime of our country are to be traced up to drunkenness ; that more than ,£60,000,000 are annually expended in destructive beverages, that myriads annually die the drunkard's death and descend still lower than the drunkard's I grave, that thousands of church members are every year cut off from christian fellowship for inebriety that every minister of the gospel has to complain of the hindrance to his usefulness from this cause, and that more ministers are disgraced by this than by any other habit, that, in short, more misery and more crime flow over society from this source tha...
'TIS BUT A DROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
'TIS BUT A DEOP. " 'Tis but a drop," the father said, And gave it to his son ; But little did he think a work Of death was then begun. The " drop " that lured him when thc babe Scarce lisped his father's name, Planted a fatal appetite Deep in his infant frame. " 'Tis but a drop," the comrades cried, In truant schoolboy tone ; " It did not hurt us in our robes It will not now we're grown." And so they drank the mixture up, That reeling youthful band ; For each had learn'd to love the taste From his own father's hand. " 'Tis but a drop-I need it now," The staggering drunkard said : " It was my food in infancy My meat and drink and bread. A drop, a drop-0, let me have, 'Twill so refresh my soul ! " He took it-trembled-drank, and died, Grasping the fatal bowl.
Annie Leslie. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
WHAT a pretty village Crompton was ! I really think it was the prettiest vil lage in dear old happy, merry Eng land. The cottages were so nicely white-washed, the gardens were so neatly trimmed, and the scent of the sweet flowers quite revived you as you passed along. Then the village green was such a pleasant sight on a bright summer's eve. There were happy little children filling their laps with daisies, or playing at " tisty-tosty,"* and many other childish games. The weary cattle grazed there after the toil of the day, and a flock of snow-white geese cropped the fresh green grass. " There was a round pond, and a pretty pond, too, Around it sweet daisies and violets grew; And dark weeping-willows that stooped to the ground, Dipt in their long branches and shaded it round." * Playing with balls made of cowslips. Merrily laughed the joyous children, merrily rang the bells of the village church, whose taper spire pointed up to heaven; merrily chirped the grass hoppers and sweetly sa...
The Children's Model. LADY JANE GREY. Born, 1537—Died, 1554. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
LADY JANE GREY. Born, Vom-Died, 1554. BT M. MASSON. WE have here a mournful story. Fancy a beautiful and joyous girl, about fifteen years of age-a model of grace and learning ; a girl on whom Heaven had bestowed all the virtues of an affec tionate daughter, a loving wife, a de voted friend, a courageous woman; a girl, in fine, who asked no greater blessing from Heaven than to be the joy of her parents, and the happiness of her newly formed household, for she had been married a few months pre viously to a young and virtuous noble man, Lord Guilford Dudley. Well, upon that radiant brow, which sought no other ornament than its wreath of flowers, the ambition of her father-in law, the Duke of Northumberland, de termined to place a crown. Edward the Sixth was dead, and, j regardless of the rights of Mary, daugh ter of Henry the Eighth, the old Duke of Northumberland caused his daughter in-law, Lady Jane Grey, to be pro claimed Queen. But of all this, Lady Jane remained in ignorance; and ...
Prize Essay. WATER, AND ITS ADVANTAGES TO MANKIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 16 August 1856
fContinued from page 236.J WATER, AND ITS ADVANTAGES TO MANKIND. BY " DUSTY MILLER." THE value of water as a motive power was discovered at an early period. The Homans used it in a very singular manner. They had large boats with wheels affixed to each side, very simi lar to a steamboat with paddle-wheels. The interior of the boat was fitted up as a flour mill, when the miller wished to grind, he had his boat taken into the centre of the stream-the Tiber made fast, and then the velocity of the current caused the wheels to revolve, they in turn giving motion to the machinery. That the Romans were also acquainted with the "under-shot" mode of using water we must believe, because there are old mills in England which were built at a period just sub sequent to the departure of the Romans from Britain. It is not probable that the people learnt their use from the Saxons, who at that time certainly had no knowledge of machinery. All the old flour mills in England were un dershot untill withi...

GRATUITOUS DISTRIBUTION FUND. Several kind friends, knowing the difficulty and the loss attending the establishment of a periodical like the present, have offered us pecuniary assistance; this, at first, we felt some delicacy in receiving, till the thought occurred of appropriating it to the gratuitous distribution of the work itself. This we shall henceforth do, publishing, occasionally, a list of the donations re ceived, and to what schools and places the work has been sent. We shall be glad to acknowledge sums, however small, for the above purpose. Address T\*im Cit J 1 -Care of H. LEE, 179, f> 7 jfitt street, Sydney.

MRS. FLETCHER AND THE MALTSTER'S MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
MRS. FLETCHER AND THE MALT STER'S MAN. MRS. FLETCHER, wife of the Rev. John Fletcher, the pious vicar of Madeley, was returning from Church one Sabbath noon, when she accidentally met one of the maltster's men in his smock-frock and working-day attire, just leaving the malt-kiln. With deep surprise and concern, Mrs. Fletcher exclaimed, "John, whatever have you been doing ? I'm grieved to see you in your working dress on the Sabbath morning. Why have you not been to church, John?" " I've been turning the malt, ma'am," replied the man. " Turning the malt, John! but surely you do not do that on the Sabbath ?" continued Mrs. Fletcher. " Yes, ma'am; if we did'nt you would have no beer" " Do you mean to tell me, John, that malt cannot be made without your breaking the Sabbath ? " " I do ma'am; malt was never made, I believe, without it." Mrs. Fletcher having satisfied herself of the truth of the man's statement, went home, and under feelings of deep concern said to her husband, " My dear,...

THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
THE COW. As among the various; animals with which the earth abounds, none is more necessary to the existence of man than the cow, so likewise none appears to be more extensively propagated. In every part of the world it is found, large or small, according to the quantity and quality of its food. There is no part of Europe where it grows to so large a size as in England, whose pastures are admirably suited to its nature. The quantity of milk and butter varies according to the difference of its pas ture ; some cows in favorable situations yield twenty quarts of milk in a day; from twelve to fourteen pounds of butter may be made in one week from the pro duce of a single cow. In ancient times the ox was accounted the most proper animal for agricultural purposes, and frequent reference is made to its service in this capacity in the Holy Scriptures; now, however, from the increase in the number of horses, it is seldom so employed. To form a just idea of the value of this animal, we ought ...
LADIES' TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
LADIES' TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. THE second public meeting of this Society was held on the 20th instant; Mr. Etherington in the chair. Mrs. Roseby first addressed the meeting, and gave an excellent apology for female teaching, selected chiefly irom the Old Testament. She was followed by Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Louden, and Mrs. Frances. Several pledges were obtained. The Secretary acknowledged the 1 kindness of Mr. Lucas, in havipg the s use of the Tent; of Mrs. Lucas, for permission to meet in her house during the cold weather; and of the Rev. J. Sharpe, for some Temperance Tracts. The Secretary, in speaking of the operations of the Society, says, " Our most important duties are, to visit from house to house, distribute Tem perance Tracts, and get as many as possible to sign the Temperance Pledge, especially females. With the exception of the first Monday in the month, which is devoted to a Tempe rance Prayer Meeting, we meet every Monday afternoon, at four o'clock, to hear the report of ...
TO-DAY AND TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
TO-DAY AND TO-MORROW. DON'T tell me of to-morrow! Give me the man who'll say Whene'er a good deed's to be done " Let's do the deed to-day !" We may all command the present, If we act, and never wait; But repentance is the phantom Of the past that comes too late. Don't tell me of tomorrow! There is much to do to-day, That can never be accomplished If we throw the hours away. Every moment has its duty Who the future can foretell'? Then why put off till to-morrow, What to-day can do as well'? Don't tell me of to-morrow! If we look upon the past, How much that we have left to do We cannot do at last. To-day ! it is the only time For all on this frail earth ; It takes an age to form a life A moment gives it birth.
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
listen) of Shstedk (Continued from p 250.J THE colony had long suffered for the want of a printing press, in the absence of which, all Government proceedings, laws, enactments, and the decisions of courts of justice, and every other de scription of business, had to be issued and recorded in manuscripts. In this year, however, 1795, from whence we continue our history, a printer was dis covered, and the press put into imme diate use. The natives, who had now become more friendly towards their white brethren, led Governor Hunter to believe that there was a herd of cattle belonging to the Government grazing at large in some fertile fields, since known as the Cowpasture. This intelligence proved correct, for on search being made, sixty-one head of cattle, the produce of the five cows and two bulls, lost, as our readers will re member, in 1788, were found. This to men so long kept on the low diet and salt provisions, day after day and month after month, was no ordinary cause for thankful...
Annie Leslie. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
Slraw ftslk (Continued from page 251.) WHY was Annie Leslie's steps so light, and why did she go thus cheerfully back to that dull chamber ? Did she not love the clear blue sky, the bright green fields, the rippling rills, the lovely flowers, and her joyous playmates ? Oh, yes: Annie Leslie was a blithe some little spirit, and she loved them all; her's was the merriest laugh upon the village green, and her s the sweetest voice when the children sang. I dare say, many children who read this will wonder, how she could relin quish that bright holiday, and many perhaps, had they been told to stop at) home, would have indulged in a hearty cry, and fretted all the afternoon. I will tell you a secret, little ones. Annie attended the Sabbath School, and she dearly loved her kind teacher, who took great pains to lead her young heart to God, and to show her what is pleasing in his sight. Annie knew, that to leave the sick alone without a soothing word could not please her Heavenly Father. She...
The Children's Model. FRANCES MARIETTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
%\t Cbilkm's Utokl FRANCES MARIETTE. BY M. MASSON. IN a miserable hut of the village of Rochebaucour, on the confines of a wood, there lived, in 1763, a little girl and boy named Frances and John Mariette, the former eleven years old, the latter about two. They were orphans; their father, who had for merly been a collector of taxes, had died a ruined man, and his wife had sunk under the grief occasioned by the loss of her husband. The poor children lived on very little; but nevertheless that little had to be bought, and to buy it Frances was obliged to sell, piece by piece, the effects of her little household. She had, indeed, been olfered employ ment at a farm, to keep cows or to work in the fields; but no one would burden themselves with her little bro ther, and Frances could not bear the idea of separating herself from him. Early accustomed to work with her fingers, Frances was able both to sew, to knit, and to spin. With the price of a piece of furniture which she had just sold,...
Selections. THE DRUNKARD. A SKETCH. (To the HEAD-EATER of the "Band of Hope Review.") [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 30 August 1856
THE DRUNKARD. A SKETCH. ( To the HEAD-EATER of the " Band of Hope Review) THE strong and prevailing tendency to indulge in spirituous liquors, is one of the momentous signs of the times. It militates against every scheme of bene- I volence devised for the amelioration of mankind. As soon as the taste for intoxicating liquors is acquired and strengthened by habitual indulgence, the only avenues by which the heart can be successfully approached is shut; the man is marked gradually negligent of his person, his clothes are covered with shreds and patches, his counte nance betrays the pallid hue of con firmed dissipation, his gait is hurried, and, in the moments most favourable for exertion, he betrays the languor and inefficiency of an unhinged frame. Stimulants afresh are plied with un sparing hands, and the strength unna turally acquired is wasted in feeble and fruitless exertion. His ear is open to every invitation, and resists the re peated efforts employed to destroy its power. But...
