HINTS TO OMNIBUS PASSENGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

HINTS TO OMNIBUS PASSENGERS. SUGGESTED FOB PUBLIC CONVENIENCE. NEVER hesitate to hail the wroi^g 'bus as you cannot be expected to read the large letters on the sides, and the time of other people is nothing to you. When you get into the 'bus, tell the driver where you wish to be put down; and having done so, never care to look out for yourself when you reach the spot. If you go beyond it, you may then legally withhold the fare. On entering a 'bus, if you carry a stick or an umbrella, be particular to swing it about with the point upwards. Taking care of other people's eyes is no business of yours; and the stick will clear the way for you in a most surprising manner. If the umbrella is wet, put the point of it into anybody's shoe; you will thus prove that you are a person of precise method, having ' a place for everything,' and everything in its place.' If you take your seat next to the door, thrust your legs directly across it. Whether the other passengers can get in or out easly i...

CHAPTER XXVII. MAKGABET'S JOURNEY. After pacing his sitting-room to and fro half the night, Norman resolved to ask Mr. Newbud's leave on the morrow to let him return at once to Bure to finish his work, alleging as a reason what was really the truth, his anxiety respecting Liddy. From what he had already heard, he half feared that per. ay mission would not be given, still he kuew that Mr. Newbud was his friend, and would grant him any favour con sistent with the exigencies of the busi ness. therefore sought that gentle man in the counting-house, previous to Mr. Stopp's clockHke arrival from Clap ham for the day. As wsual, Mr. Newbud listened with great pat ran oe to what Norman had to say, and with Added interest when he spoke of Liddy. ' Ah ! ah!' said the old gentleman, ' I don't wonder that you are anxious about your child, she's a lovely little creature, and has a sweet nature too. My sister Chole says so, and she's a j udge. I only fear Mr. Stopp will not consent. Orders are com...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, PET PERENNIALS - No. IV. BY PATTT PARSLEY. CHAPTER I. Ah, little ranting Johnny, For ever blithe and bonny. ****** With eock-up nose so lightsome, And sidelong eyes so brightsome, And cheeks as ripe as apples, And head as rough as Dapple's, And arms as sunny shining As if their veins had -wine in; And mouth that smiles so truly, Heaven seems to have made it newly, It breaks into such sweetness, With merry-lipped completeness. LEIGH HUNT. ONCE theie was a little chubby child with eyes like two bits of the blue sky, | and a little star twinkling in each; and I the sun had so often kissed his bonny little head, that his golden locks gleamed and glittered with the light he had left. And the little child was weary with playing the long summer's day, and when night came nurse put him to sleep in his cosy cot. Oh, but he was a lovely little boy, and if any of those good men who picture little children on paper, with the sweet thought that there never can be too much b...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

Australian Point dmnpnioit, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. ? MUSIC. THE gold-loving people of this southern clime seem almost insensible to every charm that would try to win them, for a short time, from their absorbing pursuits. Music alone seems to maintain its ancient prestige-the growing love of it in this city is a green spot in the desert of materialism through which we are travelling. Though the strength of music has often been enlisted on the side of falsehood and vice, and used most disastrously against the ranks of truth, still in its power as a social and moral reformer, it stands alone. This fact should be practically recognized by those who are desirous of refining and elevating the .tastes, and reforming the habits of the people of this colony. Edward Paxton Hood, in speaking of its great power for good, says ' I love those songs whose chorus is a moral principle or a moral experience, & word or two that may sound as a watchword to truth, to freedom, to virtue. And s...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY* * HIS bird is fonnd in New South Wales, from south to north-on the Namoi and Brezi plains, and on the Hunter River. It is sometimes found in flocks of thirty or forty ; is stately and elegant in all its actions, and acids greatly to the interest of the scenery, which is ornamented by its presence. It is not 'infrequently captur ed, and is very easily tamed. James Mac arthur, Esq., of Cam den, at one time had a pair in the neigh bourhood of his resi dence, which were perfectly domesticat ed ; these so far at tracted the notice of a pair of wild birds, as to induce them to settle and feed near the house, to approach the yard, feed from the hand, and even to follow the domesti cated birds into the kitchen. A servant imprudently seized on one of the wild birds, and tore a handful of feathers from its back; the wildness of its disposition was arous ed. and darting forth* followed by its com panion, mounted in the air, soaring higher and higher at every circle,...

WOMAN AND THE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

WOMAN AND THE AGE. 4 She rules the present, past, and all to be yet.' IT seems to be a law in the constitution of the social system, that Woman should Tie either the leader in the civilisation of mankiiid, or suifer deep degradation by the predominance of semi-barbarism; and it would also seem to be so because she possesses grater power for the crea tion of a state of mind and manners than the ruder sex has for the sustenance and prolongation of existing states. Woman is the prime sufferer in a disordered state of society. This theory does entirely away with a popular belief that Woman is a mere ornament to society, a poetical ideality in public, and the object of chivalry, and otherwise a domestic in stitution. Against this belief have the ladies who come forward to take a postion (which has long been theirs in reality) in the literature of the' age, made a protest -oft repeated because little heeded; and they claim the privilege of extending their jurisdiction over youth beyond th...

SPANISH COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

SPANISH COURTSHIP. A YOUNG man entered the diligence ?which was to take him to the interior. On starting he found only one companion, a young lady, strangely travelling alone; her figure was all it should be, but a mantilla covered her face. Consequently, to use the words of a novelist. 4 A strange sensations uddenly took possession of him ; love entered liis soul.' After some small civilities he proceeded to take her hand, which she withdrew, while she glared at him with two dark eyes through j the lace that enveloped her. Again he I took her hand; he kissed it, and feeling perfectly secure from intrusion, he in sisted on removing the veil. With this request, after some resistance, she com plied, and her features fully answering all his expectations, he might have assured her of his approval; but, as Segovia is approaching, he is compelled to leave her; before doing so, however, the youth pressed her to tell him where she lived, and as she leaves the diligence she gives him her nam...

PROPAGATION OF OYSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

PROPAGATION OF OYSTERS. * Long as the world have been acquaint ed with the flavour of oysters, the savans have not as yet discovered the secret of their amours. There is a scientific crown still awaiting the man who shall tell us the story of the loves of the oyster. In spring time and summer, when, as the people say, there is not an r in the month, the oysters spawn their gelutinous splashes, which the fishermen call4 spat.' The spawn looks like drops of tallow or whitish soup. The spat adhears to loose oyster shells and stones. When examin ed under a magnifying-glass, there are seen in the spat innumerable little eggs, like ill-made pills, of a brilliant white ness. As they change, they become compressed, and approach more and more towards the-shape of the oyster. Little hairs appear as the egg-cluster break up, and the thousands of the brother and sister ostrea swim off to seek their fortunes. When the steady age comes I ought rather to say the steady hour the settingdown epoch, ...

'MY OWN OLD CROSS AGAIN.' 'No Cross—no Crown.' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

«M Y OWN OLD CROSS AGAIN.' 4 No Cross-no Crown.' IT was a time of sadness, and my heart, Although it knew and loved the better part, Felt wearied with the turmoil and the strife, And all the needful discipline of life. And while I thought of these as given to me, My trial-tests of faith and love to be, It seem'd as if I never could be sure That faithful to the end I should endure. And thus, no longer trusting to Sis might, In whom ' we walk by faith and not by sight,' Doubting, and almost yielding to despair, The thought arose-' My cross I cannot bear !' * Far heavier its weight must surely be Than those of others, which I daily see: O, if I might another burden choose, Methinks, I should not fear my crown to lose.' A solemn silence reign'd on all around, 15'en nature's voices utter'd not a sound; The evening shadows seem'd of peace to tell, And sleep upon my weary spirit fell. A moment's pause-and then a heavenly light Beam'd full upon my wondering, rapturd'd sight; Angels on silve...

BASHFULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 3 December 1859

BASHFULNESS. THERE are two distinct sorts of what we call bashfulness: this, the awkward ness of a booby, which a few steps into the world will convert into the pertness of a coxcomb; that a consciousness, which the most delicate feelings produce, and the most extensive knowledge can not always be removed.

Within a door or two of the number sought was a lamp-post, and up and down past this a man had sauntered for sdibe time, regarding eagerly every passer-by and listening for every new and approach ing step with skilled attention. He was & shaby, puffy, white faced man, with an tmrefreshed look as though got of sitting up late at night, and exercising vigilance during midnight hours. He had the look of » discarded valet, a broken down waitefr, and certainly that of a man who crawled in some slimy track apart from honest men's eyes.

HINTS FOR HOMES. ALBEBT BISCUITS. The following story is told respecting the Duchess of Kent and baker of Edin burgh On her way to the Highlands the Duchess spent a Sunday at Barry's Hotel, in that city. The hotel-keeper had no biscuit of a particular kind, called ' Albert biscuits,' to present to his guests, and, in the afternoon, sent to Mr. Calderwood's, the baker, to buy some. He refused to sell biscuits on a Sunday, even to Royalty. On hearing this, the Duchess was so pleased that she ordered Mr. Caldenvood to supply her household with biscuits during her stay in the Highlands ; and the Queen likewise ordered him to send forty dozen of the said biouits weekly to Balmoral. 0EBVANTS.

THE GREAT EASTERN. TERRIBLE EXPLOSION ON BOARD. 1 Poetlanh, September 11.-Before this reaches your readers most of them will have heard, by rumour or otherwise, of the shocking accident which occurred on the evening of the 9ih. The explosion which has now cast so sad a gloom over the trip round to Portland took place in the for ward funnel, which passed throuuh the grand saloon and lower deck cabins to the boilers. It was probably one of the most terrific which a vessel h«s ever survived, and which none in the world could have withstood save a structure of such marvellous strength and solidity as the 'Great Eastern.' The strongest line-of-battle fhip would have had her sides blown out by it, and must have gone down like a stone. The * Great Eastern' not only resisted it, but in spite of the dreadful nature of the catastrophe, it made so little difference to the movements of the vessel, tbat her engines were never once stopped, and save for half-an-hour, her course was never al tered...
