Annie Leslie. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
Ilirate feslie. (Continued from page 269. J " BLESSED Jesus, help me and teach me what to say." This was a simple prayer of a simple little child; but He to whom it was addressed despised it not for its simplicity. He turned not away from the prayer of the orphan. Annie felt happier when she had thus briefly raised her heart to God, and she tried to think of some words of comfort, to speak to her whom she loved so much. " Dear grandmother," said she, "do you not remember any of God's sweet promises ? Dear teacher often talks to us about them." " Yes, I remember some of them, Annie, but I cannot think they are for me, because I have thought so little about the Lord; I have always been thinking of getting a living. Some times, when you come and tell me what you have heard at the Sunday School, I think a little about these things, and wish I had gone to a Sun day School when I was young, but it is of no use wishing now, that time is past." Poor Annie felt her heart sink for a moment, b...
The Children's Model. THE CHILDREN OF EDWARD THE FOURTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
%\t Cbittans Utokl o o THE CHILDREN OF EDWARD THE FOURTH. BT M. MASSON. Edward the Fifth, born, 1471-died, 1483. Duke of York, born, 1472-died, 1483. THERE were two brothers-Edward the Fifth, who was rather more than twelve years old, and Richard, Duke of York, who had just attained his eleventh year. The father, Edward the Fourth, during a reign of twenty two years, had been placed in circum stances of great difficulty, and had not, at all times, extricated himself from them with honour. Still, he was far from being a bad king, but as he could not govern his passions, his nobles en tertained but little respect for his cha racter, while his people rendered him only a discontented obedience. Dis covering, when too late, the errors he had committed in the exercise of sove reign power, he died overwhelmed with remorse, leaving the guardianship of his two sons to their mother, Elizabeth Woodville. Elizabeth was not of royal descent, but she deserved to fill the throne to which her virtu...
Poetry. THE DENIAL OF AFFECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
THE DENIAL OF AFFECTION. I " Oh! Willie dear, the day has gane, Dark night is closing in; Ye're welcome, loved, and weary ane, When e'ening joys begin: When e'eniug joys begin, Willie, An' songs o' childhood's glee, Ye're welcome at the gathering in, To blythesome bairns an' me." " A thousand welcomes, Mary dear, Are poor without the bowl The sparkling .bowl o' e'enin's cheer, That warms the weary soul. That warms the weary soul, Mary, An* lifts the sorrowing e'e; There's ne'er a drop within the bowl But lends a charm to thee." " 0! Willie, wnen your hameward feet, The bairnies rin to see, When tiny faces, saft an' sweet Are resting on your knee: Are resting on your knee, Willie, Like flowers Upon a brae ; [can be, What sparkling draught more dear At close o' weary day. " Then, Willie dearest, ask nae mair, An' let that frown depart; To gie to thee, wad grieve me sair What break my mither'a "heart, What break my mither's heart, Willie, .An' quench her smile o' glee ; Ah, no! what br...
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
PITT STREET. September 3.-An unusually large audience was attracted, by the exhibi tion of " Dissolving Views," by Mr. G. J. Crouch ; about 480 were present. As it was expected that more would apply for admission than could be ac commodated, it was decided that a charge of 2d. each should be made; this was an experiment, and a very successful one. The proceeds enabled the Society to clear off a small debt resting upon it, and had the effect of impressing the minds of those attend ing the Band of Hope meetings with the fact, that they are bound to support them. Places of importance iii England formed the first series of views, which were described as they passed. With the comic representations that followed the children were highly delighted. After these came the " Chromatropes," and ended with the scene " Good Night." A powerful organ enlivened the meeting; this was also kindly provided by Mr. Crouch. At the close of the meeting sixteen joined the Society. Wednesday, the 10th.-Mr. J...
THE DRUNKARD'S DYING DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
THE DRUNKARD'S DYING DAUGHTER. " 0! TIE the casement, father, the snow falls on my bed; 0 tie the casement, father, for it rattles o'er my head. Don't sleep so sound, my father, I am very numb and chill, And I cannot bear to listen, with the room so black and still! " The drunkard heard no plaintive voice, for death en wrapt his form, Nor the poor child's moan, " I'm all alone, in the wild, dark storm." The blast roar'd down the chimney, and shook the fragile wall, And the casement rattled louder, at the shrieking, angry call; The child in agony uprose, and sway'd her wasted form, As she whisper'd,-" I am all, all alone, in the wild, dark storm." A light shone m upon her, her heart beat quick with fear; She could see no form around her; no voice, no footfall near; But a whisper came unto her, as a zephyr's tone might be, And its melody breath'd, fairy-like, " My child come home to me." " There's snow upon my bed, mother, my heart is freezing fast; And shadows from the corner, are fl...
The New Crockery Shop. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
Cbt Ifcfo Crotkra SI) on. BY THE AUTHOR OF " THE GLASS OF GIN, FAMOUS as it is for the varied cha racter of its districts, London possesses not one more singular, yet at the same time less known, than the great region ?which intersects the various city docks. Opposed both in respect to aspect and inhabitants to the neighbouring districts of Spitalfields and Stepney Green, a sort of rude, and, what 1 may call, grotesque plenty is visible everywhere; and whilst in each shadow of its lusty draymen, its (lock-cleaners, its ship wrights, its caulkers, its porters, three ill-paid Bethnal Green or Spitalfield's weavers might walk abreast; the men i tal distinction is equally remarkable. The weaver is a speculator, a thinker, a politician-wisely or not according to his education; but here, supreme indifference and ignorance prevail, in regard to all matters not immediately relating to the common events going on around, or to the rude plenty which fair wages allow. Still, amidst this dense i...
THE TWO-PENNY MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
THE TWO-PENNY MARRIAGE. $4 HE following incidents of Industry, at the Five Points, New York. Some account of this destitute neighbourhood, of the first city of the American States, is given in No. 5 of the present volume, in a sketch, by Fanny Fern, entitled, t( New York in Shadow." " Mr. Pease, we want to be married." " Want to be married-what for ?" " Why, you see, we don't think it's right for us to be living together this way any longer, and we have been talking over the matter to-day, and you see " "Yes, yes, I see, you have been talking over the matter over the bottle, and have come to a sort of drunken conclusion to get married. When you get sober, you will both repent of it, probably." "No, Sir, we are not very drunk now-not so drunk but what we can think; and we don't think we are doing right. We are not doing as we were brought up to do by pious parents. We have been reading about the good things you have done for just such poor outcasts as we are, and we want you to try a...
Invenile Essay. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 13 September 1856
fiikule fern. For the sake of drawing the attention of young persons to this important means of improve ment, the following short Essay has been printed, for which a valuable work on Chemistry was awarded by MR. KNIBBS, to MASTER T. S. MOORE, a member of the Bathurst Street Band of Hope, at the late Anniversary of that Society. THE ADVANTAGES OF BANDS OF HOPE. THIS is a subject which cannot be treated with due justice, for the advan tages which are and will be derived from the Band of Hope are so nu merous, that it is impossible to write a full account of them-chiefly because they display themselves in so many different ways, from the first time of entering the meeting room, all through life. In every occupation in which we are engaged these advan tages may be traced. Ou!r attention shall only be occupied by the more immediate and most im portant advantages. The first that comes under our no tice is, that of drawing young persons out of the way of temptation: pre venting them from a...
THE TEMPERANCE PRINCIPLE SCRIPTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
THE TEMPERANCE PRINCIPLE SCRIPTURAL. ' ^ BT JABEZ BURNS, D.D. )80íOflOfiQfl£ HE temperance principle (Ra^l 0. is one easily denned, and j¡i&t v\\P* M with regard to which, Jï\ there can be no possible _ misapprehension. It is jSC.^.^^.^ the entire abstinence, as beverages, from all drinks that contain the intoxicating element. It is well known what these drinks are, and their relative inebriating power chemists have definitely settled. In their strongest and most obnoxious form they appear under the aspect of ardent, or distilled spirits. In a modified form, they are presented in fermented wines and other drinks. There are some wines which are but slightly intoxicating; but the temperance principle draws its unmis takeable line of separation between fluids in which there is no element of inebriation, and all the rest, whether they possess the noxious spirit to the extent of five or of fifty per cent. Science can settle the chemical part of the temperance question ; physiolog...
ALCOHOL EXCITES LOQUACIOUSNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
ALCOHOL EXCITES LOQUACIOUSNESS. Byron made the following charac teristic note of a party at which Sheridan was present, and when the wine, as usual, was freely circulating : " First silent, then talky, then argumen tative, then disputatious, then unintel ligible, then altogethery, then inarticu late, and then-DRUNK." An Indian, on one occasion, in reply to an inquiry made by a French officer, said, in relation to brandy :-" It is made of tongues and hearts ; for when I have drank it, I fear nothing, and I talk like an angel."

The Children's Model. MILTON. Born, 1608—died, 1674. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
Cht (SMMs WM. MILTON. I BY M. MASSON. Born, 1608-died, 1674. WE will relate but a single anecdote of the childhood of the great Milton that sublime poet who was blind like Homer, who possessed the genius of Dante, and who died without knowing that his country would one day inscribe his name in the hst of her most dis tinguished men: for let it be always borne in mind, in order that we may never despair of the future, that the author of " Paradise Lost," in the eyes of his contemporaries, was nothing more than an obscure poet, and that England did not think of counting this divine work amongst her national trea sures, until many years after its author's death. During his lifetime scarcely would any one consent to read even a few fragments of "Paradise Lost;" and even those who possessed what they termed the courage of wading through the beautiful verses of the poet-schoolmaster, pronounced the work deserving of the utmost contempt. All you, therefore, who feel the noble desire of hon...
