MODERN MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
MODERN MANNERS. SERIOUSLY, I do not think the clubs alone have to answer for the decrease in r early marriages. Other modern im provements in society must bear their share of blame. I would back the hearts - I mean the girls-against the clubs any day, only give them fair play. But no sensible man of modern means - no man who has to work, and is willing to work, for his livelihood - I might, per haps, say no sensible man in any position -picks his wife out of a ball-room or an opera-box, however much he may like to see her there. A true woman has much more chance-we all know it-of winning any love that is worth her winning, in her own home, in her undress, in her little nameless everyday unstudied graces, sitt . ing on a stile, loitering by a brook, rattling in a railway carrage, or busy and unconsious amid common household duties, than in what the sex choose to consider the especial scenes of their glories and triumphs. I have read some were, or have been told, that any woman, three...
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE LYRE BIRD. Menura Superba. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY, THE LYRE BIRD. Menura Superba. THIS beautiful bird is a native of New South Wales On the coast, near Illawarra it is found most readily. It is of a wandering dis position, and al though it probably keeps to the same brush, it is con stantly engaged in traversing it from one end to the other. It seldom flies, but eludes pursuit by running with amaz ing swiftness; its immense claws and strong feet are admi rably adapted for the rough loose stones and the sides of rocky ravines, as for the dense scrubs and reedy beds. The toes are armed with large arched blunt claws; the hind toe is as long as the fore, but the claw of the latter is longer. The head is small, the beak triangular at the base, and small and compress ed the tip ; in the male the head car ries a crest. The wings are short, and rounded, the quill feathers feeble, the general plumage full, deep, and soft. The ornamental tail, which expanded resembles a lyre, is confined to the male ; in the female...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
CORRESPONDENCE. A correspondent in Melbourne, dwelling upon the general fate, an-i present state, of colonial literature, writes as follows : To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. SIR,-Having, by chance, stumbled across some numbers of your entertaining magazine, and reading them,I was very much pleased with the principles you advocate, "and the clevt r manner in which many of the articles in your journal were written. And now desirous of becoming a con tributor to its columns, if deemed woi thy, I enclose you one or two of my first attempts at scribbling, trusting you will find tnem a corner in your paper; if not, consign them to your Balaam basket, and there will be an end of them. Perhaps one of the reasons of my sending this so far from home, is the fact of our having no magazine or periodical printed in Melbourne that deals in trifles such as I send you. Oh, no; we are fir too sensible here for anything of the. sort. Our grand Monthly Magazine, that was to eclipse the...

A young lady would recommend her to send one to Windsor.-*V. R., Windsor. 42. G. E. L.-Respecting the Aphis, I beg to enclose the following extract from a Geelonsj paper :-' The following receipt as a prevention against the cabbage blight (aphis) is from very good authority, and has been succpssfully tested for the last four months. The plants now stand clean; not an aphis is to be seen upon one of them. The seed is steeped in cold water, with 1 oz. of sulphur to every pint of M ater, for twelve hours ; the water is strained off, and the seed mixed in with a little wood ashes ; then sow. No more care is necessary. This appears simple, yet it might have the desired effect. We have, for example, the steeping of seed in a weak solution of arsenic to prevent smut in wheat. The receipt is simple and...

CHARADES, &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
CHARADES, &c. Oli'tering and white in the sunny light, High on the mountain's brow; Or rolling below where torrents flow, Tell me my first one now. I'ts often seen where the sunbeams gleam, On the Ural's rocky sides; And you tread it o 'er by the ocean's shore, And where the river glides. When dark clouds show, and loud winds blow, As the deck the seaman treads, In the murky night, the sound or sight Of my next he sadly dreads. Then high waves dash, and breaker's crash O.i my second's dreaded form, And the good and brave find a watery grave By it in the fearful storm. Tet myriads bring this dangerous thing" From the ocean's depths below, And there at last, when time goes past, Doth man both reap and sow. In Austral's It nd, there's many a hand,. My whole brings from the ground, For it brings a store, of richest ore, To all by whom 'tis found. YOUNG AUSTRALIAN.
HINTS FOR HOMES. FAMILY TOOL CHESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
HINTS FOR HOMES. ? FAMILY TOOL CHESTS. MUCH inconvenience, and considerable expense might be saved, if it was the general custom to keep in every house certain tools for the purpose of perform ing at home what are called small jobs, instead of being always obliged to send for a mechanic and pay him for execut ing little things that in most cases, could be sufficiently well done by a man or boy belonging to the family, provided that the proper instruments were at hand. The cost of these articles is very tri fling, and the advantages of having them always in the house are far beyond the expense. For instance, there should be an axe, a hatchet, a saw, (a large wood-saw also, with a horse, if wood is burned), a claw hammer, a mallet, two gimlets of different sizes, two screw-drivers, a chisel, a small plane, one or two jack-knives, a pair of large scissors or shears, and a carpet fork or stretcher. Also, an assortment of nails of various sizes, from large spikes down to small tacks, not...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from page 452.) WHEN he had gathered her to him, he told her that he had been watching for her all the evening, and seeing John Halton in the garden, he fancied she had come hither, though he was sorry as she was. In the angony of her filial grief, she wept afresh, and Walter elicited from her how desolate she felt, and how un happy she was. ' But this must not he my darling,' he said. * One earthly tie is broken, but another still more protective and near, will soon be made; and as my little wife, every tear will be wiped away. I can say no moie than this, love, and here upon your mother's grave I most solemn ly vow that all my intentions are as full of truth, as my love is passionate and unchangeable.' Liddy said , she thought so, that his words made her happy, but that being still a little girl, she missed her mother, and this the more that, though she loved her father dearly she dreaded his austerity. ' You shall not dread it long dear one, for as soon...
PHONOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
PHONOGRAPHY. WE found on our editorial table, this morning, amongst other matters of varied interest, a little lithographed pamphlet, very neatly printed, and rejoioing in the melodious title of ' The Southern Phonographic Harmonia,' a production of our sister colony, Victoria; and although not phono graphers ourselves, we are informed by some of our phonographic subscribers, that this useful art is making rapid progress in our own colony. The periodical does credit to its enterprising author, Mr. Wm. Murray, of Melbourne, and we wish him, and all who (like him) aim to elevate the intel lectual and moral principles of our fellow-towns men the most abundant tucc> ss; and we trust that the phonograpliers of Sydney will not only encourage the author, but emulate him in his effort to spread a knowledge of the art. We may refer again to this subject, as it is one of growing importance.
PET PERENNIALS—No. 11—Concluded. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
No. 11-Concluded. BY PATTY PARSLEY. I I CHAPTER III. Rise! for the day is passing: The low sound that you scarcely hear, Is the enemy inarching to battle Arise! for the foe is here! -ANNA PROCTER. TEN years later, the sun rose over a gloriously fair land under tropical skies, Bright birds and lovely flowers were glancing around, and in the distance glittered the roofs of an eastern city. All was peace and quiet-pure and spot less. As the eye roved over the beaute ous scene, the soul dreamed of the lost' Eden, and pictured it as fair and radiant. But on yonder towers gleam more than the sun-kissed roofs-gleams the armour of men-of-war. Yes, it is so. And they who watch there, and brace their hearts for a struggle hand to hand with mighty death, will fight in a noble cause. They protect the weak and the helpless, the women and the children, against which come a mighty army of destroyers. They protect them from outrage worse than a thousand deaths-from men whose souls are incarnate fie...
CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
CHAPTER IV. Beyond the blue sky and death's river I shall be soon, ? Beyond the last sigh and last shiver; Beyond the last breath's trembling quiver I shall be soon. Oh, then, for yonder home! Lord, come, come, oh, come! There was a far different scene about the same time in one of the Pacific is lands, It was noon on a burning day, and the sun poured down its rays from a cloudless sky upon a nalive village. Everything bespoke peace and happiness; the small verandah cottages covered with lovely climbing plants, the orderly little gardens, the well swept streets, told that a peaceful civilization was there. Yon der cottage, a little larger than the rest, is especially lovely. Its little garden is crowded with flowers* and the wide verandah forms a climbing place for many a lovely wild blossom. It is shel tered beneath spreading palm trees, and around it tower the cocoa nut and banana. But step within that door, and you will forget the lovely scene without. This, too is beautiful, but...

TWO LIVES MADE DESOLATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
TWO LIVES MADE DESOLATE, 'Bf MARY C. VAUGHAN. * ARTHUR, you arg my sole pride and hope-the heir of my fortune and your father's proud name. I have nothing to live for but your happiness, which is my sole study. How, then, can you disap point me by persisting in this unaccount able pursuit of one so every way beneath you.' * Mother, I do not understand you.' 1 How ccruld I expect you would under stand a mother's anxious affection! But at least, I thought I had a right to ex pect common gratitude for all I have lavished upon you. You will bring me to the grave-you are killing me ! Un grateful boy ' * Mother, I am not, believe me, ungrate ful. I do appreciate your kindness, and love you as dearly as ever son loved mother. That is right! look at me once more, and forgive me.' ' Of course, I forgive you, Arthur,' Mrs. Fair man answered, with the air of a martyr, after she had suffered herself to be coaxed into a cessation of her tears; * but you try me beyond patience, 1 must say.'

THE PERMISSIVE BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859
THE PERMISSIVE BILL. THE following is an extract of a lecture delivered in Scotland on the Permissive Bill: Of all rights, the rights of life are chief, as embracing every other ; and anything that comes into clear and direct collision with the rights of life must stand pilloried as the greatest of crimes^ Now, those who plead so boldly for their right to destroy the people's food, wholly forget the astounding fact that there are tens of thousands whose existence now depends on that which is so prodigally and per petually wasted by the brewer and dis tiller, whose rights are, therefore, wholly and totally ignored by the trafficker and his traffic. A VOICE : I deny the assertion-prove the fact. LECTURER: I will do so immediately. There are, it is supposed, about 600,000 drunkards in the United kingdom. Let us suppose half a million, less or more, for my arrangement does not depend on exactness of the number, it being a ques tion not altogether of number, but of right. Upon these half...
