LITTLE BELLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859

LITTLE BELLA. 4 ' WHERE'S your mother, eh ?' and the speaker gazed around him as he spoke, as though he expected to see, cowering in the deep gloom, her who, he well knew, would tremble as his drunken footsteps sounded in the dirty and creak ing stairs. The insane cunning of drunk enness seemed lurking in the corners of his bloodshot eyes, and as he swayed his body to and fro, his purple lips gave vent to mutterings, as the laughing demons wreathed his maddening brain with cords of fire, and danced in triumph round the ruins of a soul. How long had that child been seated there ? Hours! long hours, beside that hearth, toying with the morsel of fire remaining there, adding a handful of chips or rubbish, and then watching the thin smoke, as it curled in fantastic folds, up the large and soot-begrimed chimney, she would ever and anon pass her tiny hands through the warm cloud, and whisper to herself, as the sunny spots in her childish memory, lay spread in all their remem bered brightne...

HAPLESS is he who meditates the Nine Where Trade is all in all, intent to build Enduring: Verse! for none will deem divine His God-taught lore, however he be skilled. There Faith, like beauty by the hectic killed, Dies early, leaving him alone to pine O'er youth'sand hope's and passion's pale decline, Broken in means, and lastly, broken-Willed. To Misery wedded then, as to a wife, And bearing the burthen of a loving heart Unloved, adown the desolate ways of Life, Lo, all the gain of his harmonious art Is the eold worldling's sneer, or viler smart Of Envy's sting; and with the ignoble-strife!

THE FAR FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859

THE FAR FUTURE. AUSTRALIA, advancing with rapid wing'd stride, Shall plant among nations her banners in pride, The yoke of dependance aside she will cast, And build on the ruins the wrecks of the Past. Her flag on the tempest will wave to proclaim 'Mong kingdoms and empires her national name. The Future shall see it asleep or unfurl'd, The shelter of Freedom and boast of the world. Australia, advancing like Day,on the sky, Has glimmer'd thro' darkness, will blazon on high, A Gem in its glitter has yet to be seen, [been; When Progress shall place her where England has When bursting those limits above she will soar, Outstretching all rivals who've mounted before, And resting will blaze with her glories unfurl'd, The empire of empires and boast of the world. Australia, advancing with Power will entwine, With Honour and Justice a Mercy divine; No Despot shall trample-no slave will be bound Oppression must totter, and fall to the ground. The stain of all ages, tyrannical sway, Will pass ...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. THE FITZ-ROY IRON MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 November 1859

®{je Australian pffuw Coutpanion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOtJRNAL, THE PITZ-ROY IRON MINES. WE have been so much accustomed to look upon gold as the peculiar Australian metal, that it seems almost to be forgotten, or unknown, that a more useful though less splendid product, namely iron, is found in considerable abundance, and of superior quality. We think our readers will derive some gratification in perusing a few extracts taken from ' A Report on the present condition of the Fitz-Roy Iron and Coal Mines,' by Mr. J. H. Thomas, C.E.-a document which we have read with some interest, as at once enlarging our view of the mineral resources of this great country, and affording the hope of useful and steady employment to a future manufacturing population. A writer in the * Sydney Morning Herald,' for May 13, of the present year, thus describes the locality of the Fitz-Roy Iron Mines : 4 The Fitz-Roy Iron and Coal Mines are situated at Mittagong, in the County of Camden, 75 miles from Sydney, on...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. 'YES' AND 'NO.' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859

usfraliait lame Contpnian, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. 4 'YES' AND 'NO.' WHEN little boys and girls first learn to read, their lesson books are gradu ated to their young capacities, and short monosyllables of two or three letters are the hardest tasks they are able to tackle at that stage of their progress. Longer words of two and three syllables are reserved as the more arduous work of subsequent years. Yet in after days, when spelling out the trouble some lessons of life, in the great school of the world, where cfkme Fortune whips her children, and so unequally rewards them, who has not found that the longest words in the language are by no means the hardest to utter, and that the greatest effort is often needed to get out very little ones ? Take, for instance, those two important little monosyllables, 'yes' and ' no.' Is there one of our readers that will not confess that they have occasionally found it very hard indeed to say 1 yes,' and occasionally as hard to say ' no V Other wo...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR— [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, « ANECDOTES OF JULIUS C^SAR - continued. IT was about this time that Caesar wrote a book, giving an account of his victories and conquests. When boys learn Latin, one of the first books put into their hands is ' Caesar's Com mentaries,' which are very entertaining, and so clever that they show that he was not mei'ely a brave general but also a good writer. In those ancient times, it was not so common for people to compose books as it is now ; and men then thought it as important a work to write a letter, as they do now when they write a volume. Solomon says that ' of making many books there is no end but they were not so numerous in his time, nor even when Ca;sar lived long afterwards, as they are now, because printing had not been invented, and it took people several years to copy any large book that they wished to obtain. Those who desired to have one, must either copy it all with their own hands or hire some writer to do it for them, and this made it so ex p...

THE DYING WIFE. THE following most touching fragment of a letter from a dying wife to her hus band. was found by him some months after her death, between the leaves of a religious volume, which she was very fond of perusing. The letter, which was dim with tear markst was written long before the husband was aware that the grasp of a fatal disease had fastened Tipon the lovely form of his wife, who died at the early age of nineteen: ' When this shall reach your eye, dear George, some day when you are turning over the relics of the past, I shall have passed away for ever, and the cold white stone will be keeping its lonely watch over the lips you have so often pressed, and the sod will be growing green that shall hide for ever from your sight the dust of one who so often nestled close to your warm heart. ' For many long and sleepless nights, when all except my thoughts were at rest, I have wrestled with the consciousness of approaching death, until at last it has forced itself upon my ...

Come, neighbor George, thee bean't a fool, Just step aside wi' me, Put thy sickle on the shook, And stretch beneath this tree; To tell thee that thou munnat drink, And tell thee true I'll try ; For that thou maunt a drunkard be, There are many reasons why* l?irst there is thy little Nell, A bonnie winsome thing, Who came aero ss the fields the morn.

FASHIONS FOR JULY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859

FASHIONS FOR JULY. » MUSLIX and Barege dresses are universally adopted for the hot weather: dresses of this thin texture are all ma® with flounces, some with one bro»d flounce at the bottom, and a double skirt, the edge just touching the top of the flounce. This looks much prettier than five or seven narrow flounces, which have lately been highly fashiona ble. As these narrow flounces cover only one half of the skirt, the dress when made of transpa rent texture, has the effect of being composed of two different materials. Many muslin dresses are made with low or half high corsages, and worn with pelerines, some of which are extremely showy and elegant. They are .usually made of muslin, tulle, or guipure, and tastefully trimmed with runnings and bows of colored ribbnns. No form of sleeve is more fashionable than the pagoda. An unsuccessful attempt Ijas been made at Paris to introduce tight sleeve*. .Silks, with white ground, figured with bouquets of flowers, in vari gated hues, are v...

BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859

BEAUTY* BeI it a work of art, a scene in nature, or, rarest of all, a human face divine, a beauty never before beheld strikes us .with hidden pleasure, like a burst of light. And it is a pleasure that elevates; the imagination feels itself richer by a new idea of excellence; for, not only is real beauty wholly original, having no prototype, but its immediate influence is spiritual. It may seem strange-I ap peal to every observant artist if the assertion be not true-but the first sight of the most perfect order of female beauty, rather than courting, rebukes and strikes back every grosser instinct that would alloy admiration. There must be some meanness and blemish in the beauty which the sensualist no sooner beholds than he covets. In the higher incarna tion of the abstract idea which runs through all our notions of moral good and celestial purity-even if the moment the eye sees the heart loves the image the love has in it something of the reve rence which it was said the charms of ...

THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER XXVI. PLEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859

THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from Daee 475.) CHAPTER XXYI. PLEAS. Miss NORTH'S opportunity of speaking to Walter in relation to Liddy Norman soon came. That same evening that the girl had been to the Manor-house, Lady Jane was sent for to the hall to dine with Lord Bure : so Miss North taking tea in her own room, employed herself in reading, as was her habit. Upon enquiring from Lady Jane's maid, she learnt that Mr. Verdun was likewise at the hall, though he had left word that he should return as soon as he possibly could. It was, therefore, be fore the evening was very late, that Walter entered her room. Mis counten ance wore a worn, anxions look, and his usually calm and genial manner was changed into one betraying recent anger and agitation. This was so evident that Miss North enquired the cause almost as soon they were alone. ' Oh ! my uncle,' he said, ' is as usual full of schemes and plans totally opposite to those of mine. But to thwart, instead of aid or wisely counsel, has al...

WRECK OF THE POMONA. It is stated that the loss of this ill fated vessel, and 400 lives, was occa sioned through drink. A private letter from one of the mates of the ship, J. P. Harwood states that at the time the ship Struck, the three first officers were drunk in the cabin, and so drunk that neither of them came on deck at all, although it was three-fourths of an hour after she struck before she went down, and they went down with her in their drunken sleep!-Christian News.

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE ALLIGATOR, OR CROCODILE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859

A V STRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY, THE ALLIGATOR, OR CROCODILE. THE above engraving represents a female alligator, caught in the Fitz-Roy River, seven miles below Rockhampton ; it was found entangled in the net of a fisherman, and shot. Mr. McGregor, naturalist, stuffed and set up the speci men at Rockhampton, in the most skilful manner, and brought it to Sydney in a' perfect state. It is the finest specimen of the alligator ever exhibited, and is quite a different species from any hitherto seen. The skin is soft and pliable, coated with a scale resembling tortoiseshell, but thin as writing paper: a ball from an ordinary rifle will pierce any part of the body, but an iron pointed bullet is required for the head. A fatal shot is just behind the ear, or in the back, piercing the spine. The color of the skin is a dark green and yellowish tint; the eyes, yellow, very small; ears close behind the eyes; brain, very small. The mouth is two feet long, with thirty six teeth in the upper jaw, and ...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859

CHAPTER III. Radiant daughter of the sun! Now thy living wreath is won. * * * Oh, art thou not Happy in that glorious lot? Happier, happier far than those With the laurel on thy brow, She that makes the humblest hearth Lovely but to one on earth.-MRS. HEMANS. FIVE years had glided slowly by with all their weight of sin and woe, with all their death-partings and births of sorrow, and the sixth looked on Minnie Conner, and found her a very different being from the Minnie of by-gone days. She sits by her sister's hearth with her sister's baby on her knee, and the ready smile plays in her eye and on her brow as she listens to Wilfred's joyous converse-Wilfred the hero of her girlhood's dream. Far and wide, through Australia and the Colonies, through America and the continent, is ringing the voice of Minnie Conner, the thoughtful poetess, the pure woman bard. And she is altered by her fame. Her glance is more lofty, more self-confiding; her form more erect, her step firmer, and her voice...
