GATHERED AT THE POLICE OFFICE, GEORGE STREET. XHE following facts are the harvest of twelve weeks ending last Saturday (September 20, 1856), from that cherished and cultivated source of crime, THE S AUB OF INTOXICATING DRINKS : Convicted of Drunkenness ... 1294 Other Convictions resulting from Intemperance : Using obscene language ...

SURRY HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
SURRY HELLS. Friday Evening, 19th instant.-Mr. Crouch delivered his third interesting lecture on the " Chemistry of Intoxica ting Liquors," proving very clearly how the good things of God are turned into the evil things of man, through wicked inventions. In reference to the progress of this society-which now numbers about 150 on its books, besides séveral adults who have taken a total abstinence pledge we would simply re-mark that it is going on steadily, hut prosperously ; slowly, but surely. October 3.-A meeting as usual.
Annie Leslie. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
(Continued from page 285J SOME of my young friends in Australia, perhaps, still remember the sweet Sab bath at their village homes, in dear Old England. The soft pure air, whose stillness was only broken by the ringing of the bells, " Calling grateful hearts to pray ;" the walk through the fields of rich waving corn to the Sunday School, whither they trudged so happily with their catechisms and their Bibles ;Jthe kind faces of their teachers and the holy things they taught. I say, perhaps they still remember all these, and if they do, they will be able to fancy Annie Leslie on that bright Spring Sabbath, after the holiday which she so cheerfully relinquished. On awaking, she remembered what day it was, and then thought that she must not leave her grandmother, to go to the much-loved Sunday School: yet her cheerfulness did not forsake her, and she said, "I can say my lessons to dear teacher next Sunday ; granny will be better then." Annie was not, however, to be dis appointed that ti...
LADIES' TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
LADIES' TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. ON Monday evening last, a public tea meeting was held in the Juvenile Temperance Hall, in Frances - street, Woolloomooloo ; nearly 300 partook of the good things provided. After singing a temperance hymn, and the offering of prayer by Mr. A. HOWITT, Mr. REDGATE was voted to the chair, who made a few remarks, and then called upon the Secretary to read the report ; after which, Mrs. MULLINS addressed the meet ing in a clear and impressive manner. She referred to the life of Jonadab, the son of Rechab, (Jer. xxxv.,) and urged upon her audience and Christians generally to come forward and assist them in their great work. Mrs. ROSEBY was the next speaker, and was followed by Mrs. ENSOE. Other speakers were to have taken part in the meeting ; but the time being gone, the meeting was closed with singing and the benediction. Over the head of the Chairman were the words " WINE IS A MOCKEK !" executed in needlework, and on the sides of the tent were suitable ...
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. MORTIMER.-Many schemes might be devised for extending the cause; "what is done in England cannot alway s be done here. There ought to be s public Temperance Hall, and no doubt there will be before long ; but what is most needed at pre sent, is a bold and intelligent advocacy of the principles. Let those whose education and posi tion entitle them to respect, and who in this and the mother-country have already gained laurels to their labours in the cause; let them come forth from their seclusion and others will do the same, and as they look round upon this beau tiful country, determine not to rest till this stain of iniquity is washed away, and this land be not only the most prosperous, but the happiest on the face of the earth. The responsibility rests upon them, and they cannot neglect it with impunity. Should any of our subscribers be in the receipt of English or American Temperance papers or periodicals, they would confer a great favour by forwarding the...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
TASMANIA. We extract the following from the Hobart Town Advertiser : TEMPERANCE.-À most interesting meeting took place at the Wesleyan Free Church, Murray-street, on Friday evening, August 25th, at seven o' clock, for the purpose of. forming a branch Temperance Society, to be connected with the Tasmanian Temperance Alliance. This society is to possess features differing partially from other societies. It is to be decidedly a work ing man's society. There is to be no thing sectarian in it, although its meet ings are to be held in the Murray-street Chapel. One feature in this society is interesting-a benefit society is to be attached to it for members who do not wish to join the Rechabite Society. The chair, pursuant to notice, was occupied by Captain Fisher, who, in an appropiate speech, stated the object for which they were met. Mr. John Rothwell acted as secretary pro tem. The juvenile Rechabites of the Hope of Rechab Tent occupied the upper part of the chapel, at each side of the ...
Alcohol. PROPERTIES AND EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
%ltokí PROPERTIES AND EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL. ALCOHOL possesses three distinct pro perties, and produces, consequently, a three-fold physiological effect.- 1. It has a nervine property, by which it excites the nervous system inordinately, and exhilarates the brain.-2. It has a stimulant property, like ammonia, phosphorus, capsicum, and others, by which it inordinately excites the mus cular motions and the action of the heart and blood-vessels.-3. It has a narcotic property. This is precisely the same in alcohol as in the pure narcotics, as henbane, prussic acid, deadly nightshade, and others. The operation of this property is to suspend the nervous energies, and soothe and stupify the subject. It is because u alcohol possesses this combination of properties, by which it operates on various organs and affects several func tions, in different ways, at one and the same time, that its potency is so dread ful and its influence so fascinating, when once the desires and appetites are thoroughl...
ALCOHOL PERVERTS THE JUDGMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
ALCOHOL PERVERTS THE JUDGMENT. At the beginning of intoxication, the ideas flow with a more than natural rapidity; self-love soars above our prudence, and shows itself openly ; we lay aside the scale of deliberation, the slow, pondering, measuring, and com- j paring instruments of judgment. In this condition every man is a hero to himself; he feels as he wishes, and the state of his mind is betrayed by boast ings and falsehoods, by pretensions to abilities beyond his possession, and by a delusive contempt for the evils that beset him. -Sir A. Carlyle.
Poetry. YE THREE VOYCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
YE THREE VOYCES. BY R. S., A WRITER IN DOUGLAS JERROLD'S SHILLING MAGAZINE. Y» glasse was at my lippe, Clear spyrit sparklinge was ; I was about to sippe, When a voyce came from ye glasse : 'And would'st thou have a rosie nose ? A blotched face, and vacant eye ? A shaky frame that feebly goes ? A forme and feature alie awry ? A body rack'd with rheumy paine ? A buvn't up stomach, fever'd braine ? A muddie mind that cannot thinke ! Then drinke-drinke-drinke ! " Thus spoke ye voyce and fledde, .N or any more did say ; But I thought on what it saide, And threw ye glasse away. Ye pipe was in my mouthe, Ye first cloud o'er me broke; I was to blow another When a voyce came from ye smoke ! Come, this must be a hoaxe ; Then I'll snuffe if I may not smoke; But a voyce came from ye boxe, And thus these voyces spoke : "And would'st thou have a swimmie head ? A smokie breathe and blacken'd toothe? And would'st thou have thy freshness fayde, And wrinkle up thy leafe of youth e ? Would'st thou ha...
THE TENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
THE TENT. The Kev. J. Voller gave an instruc tive lecture on " Growth," on the evening of the 16th September-about 130 were present. The lecturer drew an analogy between the small beginnings and gradual development of seeds and plants and that of character, - the advantages resulting from training and cultivation in both instances. Speaking of the cultivation of a good taste, he said that he should, in a great measure, estimate the character of persons by the love they had for the grand scenery -the beauty and variety-everywhere spread around them. This was the first lecture of the society ; and it is somewhat singular that the opening lecture of the parent society at Pitt-street was given by the same gentleman. Sixteen joined at the conclusion. September 23.-The subject of tem perance was simply and clearly brought out by the speakers, who were listened to with great attention. Five signed their names, making the total number thirty. Tuesday, 30th.-Mr. Crouch will deliver a lecture...
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
Wískq oí ^ustndk (Continued from p, 267.,) OUR last accounts reached to- the memorable flood on the Hawkesbury, in 1806. In addition to the calamities it brought upon the toiling and industrious families who had so rapidly progressed in the flourishing district of Windsor, these early settlers had now inflicted upon them one of a more social and political character, by the appointment from the home Government of a man alias a monster in human form-to reign over them as governor, in the person of Captain Bligh. The only claim he appears to have had on Downing Street for the respon sible distinction of Governor of New South Wales, appears to have been his qualities as a sailor, in saving the lives of himself and crew of eighteen men from the mutineers of the " Bounty," and his escape with them to the Island of Timor. Such simple qualification, however, soon proved that it was not sufiicient for the onerous duties of a governor of a young and rising colony ; that the hardihood and dari...

(What we have here are coffee and eating houses combined.) I mean strictly in the London style : houses neatly and comfortably fitted up ; the daily papers, weekly and monthly periodicals taken in ;-some of them even have a small library. They are very convenient and attractive : there you may walk in, take tea or coffee and a chop or steak, if you wish-and amuse yourself with paper or pamphlet. From the number of them, and the clean and respectable way in which they are conducted, and the extensive patronage they receive, they must be profitable speculations. Sydney is now sufficiently advanced for their introduction. There are a mim uer 01 younis auu yuuiig men wiiu take ...
The New Crockery Shop. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
?k fei» ^aàtq Mm. fe y r: BY THE AUTHOR OF " THE GLASS OF GIN,' (Continued from page 292J ^--' As I have said, another customer had entered with the girl. He now came close up to Mrs. Gussett's side, and examined the teapot, for he himself had come in to buy a little painted drinking mug for his child, and had not yet been waited on. He was a tall lusty drayman, on whose arm this little child rested, as lightly as summer down floats on the outstretched branch of some great forest tree ; but though both the little mite and himself had looked through the whole range of dirty mugs, both on shelves and counter, yet none had pleased their eye. That this was not owing to insensibility to beauty was most certain, by his look of intense wonder and admiration at the teapot, and by the baby's little pointed finger : it saw the loveliness before it, and smiled down upon the flowers. . " Well there," the drayman said, as i he drew his hands across his face, "if I was as I was in my single days,...
"BE IN EARNEST." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 27 September 1856
.'BE IN EARNEST." BY G. E. LOMAX. Be in earnest, toiling brother ; The darkest night will turn to day ; If ODe plan fails thee, try another; One effort more may clear the way. Be in earnest ;-sit not weeping O'er thy lot,-but be a man ; Sluggards conquer not by sleeping ; Earnestness is Nature's plan. Dost thou see a neighbour careless ? Let his conduct fire thy zeal ; Be may mingle with the prayerless, Toil thou for Australia's weal. As thou toilest be not creed-bound, This betrays a little mind ; Be in every time of need found Labouring for all mankind. Be not selfish in thy labours : Strive to raise thy fellow men ; Do a little for thy neighbours : GOD will bless thy efforts then. Look around thee ! men are dying, Wrapt in clouds of darkest night ; Be in earnest-daily crying By thy deeds, " Let there be light I"
Correspondence. MELBOURNE. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
MELBOURNE. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. SIR,-I do not know whether or not it is against your rules to publish letters in the REVIEW, if addressed as above, but if not, I should feel very grateful to you if you could spare a corner for a few lines. How is it, Sir, that Melbourne is so far behind Sydney with regard to such associations which you fortnightly re view, and with success too ? Is it because there are no drunkards in that city ? or because there are no youths in this part of the world to be saved from the evil of intemperance ? I am sure it is not from such reasons as these; but rather I expect, because no one has thought of it in such a busy money-seeking place as this. Have you no subscribers in Victoria, Sir, to whom this may come, who might be roused by it through your REVIEW? Surely there are some in Victoria who would take an interest in such an object! Can they not join in such a work ? for there is plenty here amongst the young; and from what we can lea...
