HINTS FOR HOMES. COOKING OLD FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
HINTS FOR HOMES. COOKING OLD FOWLS. The following method is given in the * Cottage Gardener' for making the best and most savory dish with old fowls : Take a dish (an ovel one is best), and it must have a cover to it: cut thin slices of bread, and line the bottom and sides of it with them; then put a layer of bacon. You may then either put in your fowl whole, or, if you have more than one, you may cut them up; if the latter, place them in layers, filling up with any old scraps of meat you may have-nothing is too common or too fat: any remains or trimming, pieces of bacon, any of the little bits that turn to no account; but fill every space-make it, in fact, a sort of edible gouting. When the dish is full, pour in gravy; or, lacking that, pour in water till it is full; then put a layer of bacon and bread, as before; put on the lid, and tie it down. Let it be put in a slack oven over-night, and allowed to remain simmering till the morning; then let it get cold, and your old Cochin-Chi...

LOCUSTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
LOCUSTS. ACCORDING to recent accounts, large flights of locusts have made their appear ance in Italy. In the neighbourhood of lake Como their ravages have been very destructive. No more fearful plague can be endured than a visit from these creatures. In the * Life of a Travelling Physician' we find an account of them: f He observes ' that they are accompanied in their flight by birds the size of a thrush, which devour them, and make continual war against them. These birds are cherished by the peasants in Syria. I have watched them for hours, but must confess I never saw them make much havoc in the ranks of the enemy. Some few would drop maimed on the ground; but I never saw more than twenty of these birds at a time, and what could twenty do against millions ? I think the destructive power of the birds has been overrated. Volney has given an accurate descrip tion of these insects in his travels in Syria. As he observes, the locusts are sometimes carried by the wind towards the sea; a...

I WOULD BE THINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
I WOULD BE THINE. I would be thine, Oh, not to learn the anguish Of being first a deity enshrined, Then when the fever fit is past to languish, Stript of each grace that fancy round me twined. Not such the lot I crave. I would be thine, Not in bright summer weather, A sunny atmosphere of joy to breathe; But fear and tremble when the storm cloud gather, And shrink life's unrelenting storm beneath, Fainting when needed most. I would be thine, To loose all selfish feeling, In the sole thought of thee, far dearer one, To study every look thy will revealing : To make thy voice's ever varying tone. The music of my heart 1 I would be thine When sickness doth oppress thee ; With love's unwearied vigilance to watch. Waking-to soothe, to comfort, to caress thee; Sleeping-to list in dread each sound to catch Thy slumbers that might break. I would be thine. When vexed by worldly crosses, To cheer thee with affection's constant care ; To stay thee 'neath the burden of thy losses, By showing thee...
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. | SIR,-Referring to the spirited and truthful illustration of the 'Menura Superba' ('Native Pheasant' of the colonists), in your last number, and the description of this remarkable bird accom panying it, I observe your contributor has omitted to mention two singular features, viz.. That it correctly imitates the notes of all the feathered tribes in its locality; and that it lays but one egg, and this almost always on the summit of a lofty stump. A living specimen of the Lyre-Bird is now to be seen in the avairy of the Zoological Gardens at Melbourne, the first, it is said, that has been reared in captivity. Yours obediently, Shankj, Balmain. 7th November, 1859.
THE GOSPEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
THE GOSPEL. « THE divine character of the gospel ap pears in this-in its wonderful capacity to adapt itself to the boundless wants of the whole family of man. It is like the mighty ocean which rolls itself on the wide-spreading shores of a hundred em pires, and yet replenishes and fills with its tide the little creek. Thus the gospel, while it visits with its healing waters, the wide-spreading church of Christ, fills, and supplies with the waters of life, the soul of the meanest believer in Jesus. The gospel is a plant which is not affected by earthly changes. It is the same in the temperate as in the torrid zone, and as in the frigid. It does not seem to he scorched by heats, or be numbed by cold : age does not diminish the freshness of its bloom ; soil does not affect its nature ! climate does not modify its peculiar properties. Among the frost bound latitudes of North America, and the burning sands of Africa, or the fertile plains of India, we find it still shooting up the same p...

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. 44. J. G.-Canaries should be fed during the time of breeding, with hard boiled egg, chopped small, mixed with crumbs of stale bread, just soaked in water, and squeezed dry; a little crushed hemp seed may also be mixed with it. Similar food should be given to the young brood, till they are five or six weeks old. At ordinary times "a little watercress or lettuce, or other green stuff is necessary for the birds. At Redfern, a short time back, a canary brought up twenty-three young ones in three months, which at ten shillings each, well repaid the trouble spent upon rearing them. MARTIN, Chippendale. 45. ERITH.-In reply to your correspondent, I beg to send the following account respecting print ing:-'On the 7th of May, 1850, the Times news paper and supplement contained 72 columns, or 17,500 lines, made up of more than 1,000,000 pieces of type. Of the matter thus ' set up,' two-fifths were written, 4 set,' and corrected after seven o'clock in the evenin...
'DRINKING FOUNTAINS.' To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
&lt;DRI^KING FOUNTAINS.' To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion* SIR,-As the humane and happy idea of estab lishing water fountains throughout the thorough fares of towns and cities is being nobly carried out in England as well as in New Soutli Wales, can the Home Companion, or any one of its staff, inform us where the suggestion first originated. I am inclined to think that we are indebted to France for the notions which have led to these simple but princely public gifts. When in Paris several years ago, no monument -not even the statue in the Place Vendome-> gave me a higher estimate of the g'reat official consideration evinced by the Government for the ' People,' than the magnificent fountains in the Place de la Concorde, and within the gardens of the TUilenes and Palais Royal. Since that period it has often struck me that if fountains as plain as the old fashioned ' pump wells,' still to be seen in the borough towns of Great Britain, With drinking nipples at t...

PET PERENNIALS—No. III. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
IP E T PERENNIALS - No. lit. BY PATTY PARSLEY. CHAPTER I. 'Twas but a. deed of duty done, Nought but a man should do, "Why, then, to you hath my spirit gone, Why fiy my thoughts to you ? Alas ! on this earth are so few-so few ! Who the manly dictates of duty do! ANON* IN the front balcony of a house in one of the suburban streets of Sydney sat a young girl looking forth upon the life below. A half-drawn curtain screened her from the passers-by, whilst it per mitted her to see clearly all that was passing. And so Minnie Conner laid her head on her hand, and watched passively the varying scene;-but if she watched with her eyes, her thoughts were evi dently wandering. . Ah,' she whispered, with a thrilling distinctness that told how the words were cutting their way from the heart,-?' ah, ye have all souls, you people down there, but well I know that almost all of them are asleep, or at least drowsing. Do I not know that you have hushed them down, and lulled them with promises of gold, ...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 November 1859
CHAPTER II. Sister, since I met thee last, O'er thy bro* a change hath past. In the softness of thine eyes, Deep'and still a shadow lies ; From thy voice there thrills a tone, Never to thy childhood known; Through thy soul a storm hath moved, Gentle sister, thou hast loved ! MRS. HEMANS, MISNIE and Cora walked with arm twined in arm, in the little garden be hind their dwelling, If possible, there was more depth in Minnie's eye ; if pos sible, more light in Cora's. 'Well, my' sister,' Minnie said, with faltering tones, ' I wait to hear your joy ous tale.' 4 And you shall> little one,' said the stately Cora; 'but first, what is this?' and she caught as it fell from Minnie's bowed face a pearly tear. ("What is this ?' 4 Oh, nothing,' Mihnie said, as she dashed up her head and made a very tre mulous effort to laugh ; ' nothing, only I feel so sad to-day, as if something dread ful were going to happen.' 4 How silly! just interpret this trouble some feeling like a dream-will you, siste...
THE GAMING HOUSE AN ANTE-ROOM TO THE GALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859
THE GAMING HOUSE AN ANTE-ROOM TO THE GALLOWS. ? HE plays the game of a great enemy who places temptation in the way of others. If this conclusion be deemed sound in a general point of view, it has special force when applied to the young, who with principles scarcely fixed, with inexperience of life, surrounded by much that is novel and much that is bewilder ing, require to be fenced in and protected by every restriction and safeguard which can be ranged around them. To them command and control of money should, surely, be slowly, gradually, and spar ingly entrusted, and only after their bent, disposition, habits, and principles, have been accurately ascertained. The con trary course is cruelty. Poor Westonr feelingly alludes to this omission in his touching defence. As to the other popular haunt, to the delirium and excitement of which he mainly ascribes his fall, that may be safely pronounced a scene in which the Tempter daily and hourly triumphs - the gaming house ! How many hundre...
CHARADES, &c. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859
CHARADES, &c. I. The wealth of Australia comprises my first, My second may lead you to ruin accursed; The tune which the old cow gaiped out when she died, In sound to my third is; too, closely allied. My last in old Scotland very often is used To signify love, but elsewhere abused. My whole from Hyde Park lies unmasked to the view And may be seen any day by your sisters or you. w. w. II. If I give my first and second away, Then nothing with me would remain; My third you will see in shining array, Surrounded by mountain or plain. To reach my whole 'tis a circuitous route, Before strong minds the danger will fade; And you'll say when you reach it, without e'er a doubt, For your trouble you well are reDaid. F. W.
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859
CHAPTER III. And must the first who teaches me Tne form of shrouds and funerals, be Mine own first-oorn beloved? He Who taught me first this mother-love ? Dear Lord, wbo spreadest out above 'J hy loving, transpierced hands to xneet All lifted hearts witii blessings sweet, Pierce not my heart, my tender heart, Thou madest tender! Thou who art So happy in thine heavtn alway, Take not mine only bliss away ! -MKS. BROWNING. JOHNNY lay tossing in his cot in the height of a fever-fit. For the little boy's loving heart was 'not able to bear the parting with poor Effie. His mother leant sadly over his bed, and watched his restless slumber, praying to the God of love to spare her boy, her darling boy. Soon came the doctor, and with grave face leant over the poor child, and watched his slumbers. Then he sat down and as gravely wrote his prescrip tion. The mother could not bear this silence, and she implored him tell her if her child's illness were dangerous. And he said softly that according ...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859
CHAPTER II. Dear little baby! sweet pretty love J Mamma, did it come down from Heaven above ? Oh, if it did, will not God take again The dear little baby to keep it from pain ? -ANON. A FEW days after nurse took Johnny up out of his mother's room. Johnny laughed, for he thought it very funny to be carried in nurse's arms, and very funny to leave the nursery in his cool night-dress, and with bare feet and dis hevelled curls. Nurse carried him into mamma's room, and put him on the bed ; Johnny wondered why mamma was not up, and why the shutters were not open yet, and he was just going to ask, when mamma told him to peep over on the other side, and when he did he saw a little red baby snuggled up among the bed clothes. Then Johnny remembered his dream, and clapped his hand, and cried, Oh, the good angel, the good angel!' And his mamma wondered what he meant, and so he told her all his dream, 'And oh, mamma,' he said 4 will the angel take away the pretty baby-oh, will she ?' And his mam...
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. THE people on the diggings must be a youthful set-for nearly all are miners. WHEN a thought strikes you, what should you do with it ?-Hit it again, . WHAT church do you attend, Mrs. Partington?'-'Oh any paradox^ church where the gospel is dispensed with.' THE weathercock, after all, points to the highest moral truth, for it shows man that it is a vain thiug to a-spire. A NEW mode of dispersing mobs has been discovered, said to supersede the necessity of a military force-it is, to pass round a contribution box. A NEW sewing machine to collect rents, mend manners, and repair family breaches, is much needed. A WOULD-BE wit having fired off all his stale jokes without effect, at last exclaim ed, ' Why, you never laugh when I say a good thing.'-' Don't I ?' retorted Jcrrold, 4 only try me with one.' MOLIERE was asked the reason why in certain countries a king may assume the crown at fourteen years of age, and can not marry before eighteen.-' It is,' said Moliere, '...
'STILL TO MEMORY DEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859
'STILL TO MEMORY DEAR. WHERE the river gently murmurs 'Mid banks of mossy green ; And the willows, kindly bending In friendship kiss the stream. Where the old mill's homely presence The landscape seems t:> cheer ; 'Twas there I dwelt in childhood, And 'tis still to mem'ry dear. I've oft in fancy gather'd Its sunny flowers again, And heard each feather'd warbltr Repeat its joyous strain. B And when Misfortune o'er me Sheds her mantle dark and drear, That one bright spot-tho' lost to sight Is still to mem'ry dear. The happy blithsome'loy'd ones That wander'd by my side. Have passed with noiseless footsteps Down Time's unchanging tide. Perchance their welcome voices Asrain I may not hear ; But tho' their forms are absent, They're still to mem'ry dear. F. S. W.
