To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. Sir,-According to one of your late numbers, I observed, with pain, a com plaint in reference to several of the Bands of Hope having slackened their exertions, and in looking at the names, (which are as follows :- Hay Street, Pyrmont, Chippendale, and Redfern,) Bishopsgate appears to be forgotten; but although you have had no notice of our meetings, I am happy to inform you that we are exerting all the influence we possess, and am thankful to say not in vain, for we have a flourishing Band of Hope. Yours truly, J. G.
Alcohol. ALCOHOL BEGETS CHILDISH BEHAVIOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
P®tol. ALCOHOL BEGETS CHILDISH BEHAVIOUR, i Xenophon relates an interesting cir cumstance illustrative of this subject, relative to Cyrus, which occurred during a visit which the latter made when a a boy, to his maternal grandfather, Astyages. Cyrus was asked by his grandfather why he did not swallow some of the wine ? " Because truly," replied the youth, " I was afraid there had been poison mixed with the cup ; for when you feasted your friends upon your birthday, I plainly found the Sacaan (slave) had poured you out all poison." " And how, child," replied Astyages, " did you know this ?" " Truly," said Cyrus, " because I saw you all disordered in body and mind ; for first, what you do not allow us boys to do, that you did yourselves; for you all bawled out together, and could learn nothing of each other; then you fell to singing very ridiculously, and, without attending to the singer, you swore he sang admirably; then, everyone telling stories of his own strength, you rose and fel...
GO NOT BACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
GO NOT BACK. My brother-go not back; Press on in virtue's way ; Be stedfast in thy sacred pledge, And truth shall be tli> stay, [spring, Hope, bright as morning's dawn, shall | Where'er thy feet may tread ; Then-go not back again, my friend, To paths with terror spread. My brother-go not# back To sorrow and to vice; To reap the bitter fruits of sin, Where none to glory rise; Where, stranger to the joys of eaith, Life will be steeped in woe ; Then-go not back again, my friend, But upward.-heavenv:ard go !
MELBOURNE BANDS OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
MELBOURNE BANDS OF HOPE. A correspondent at Melbourne writes as follows u I will let you know how we are getting on here. Our society (meet ing in Russell-street) is in a flourish ing condition, and we have also a Band of Hope that meets every Thursday evening, numbering about 250 ; and we have also a Band of Hope in our Sunday School at the Rev. J. Townsend's, which numbers 200. I was one of the first to' com mence this society. We have a magic lantern, with views of " The Bottle," which has been a great attraction and done much good. Some time since I had to leave Collingwood and go to Emerald Hill, at which place I now reside, and last April we called a meeting of the inhabitants and formed a society, to which I am secretary. After the election is over, we intend having a tea meeting; it will be about the 16th October, when it is expected that the Rev. J. Townsend, H. Lang lands, Esq., M.L.C., and Mrs. Thomas will address the meeting, on which occasion we intend to form a Band of...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
TASMANIA. TEMPERANCE MEETING.-The usual meeting of the Hobart Town Total Abstinence Society took place in the Temperance Hall, Bathurst-street, on Tuesday evening. It was as well at tended as could be expected, when we take into account the excitement which prevailed on electioneering subjects. The Juvenile Band, connected with this Society, is a powerful attraction. The performance of those lads is very creditable, and indicates a great fact, namely, that the native youth of Tas mania possesses musical talent, which, if rightly cultivated, will be found equal to that of any country in Europe. The Temperance Society, connected with the Wesleyan Reform Church, held a meeting in the Murray-street Chapel, on Friday night, which was well at tended. Mr. H. T. C. Cox presided. This meeting was addressed by Messrs. Shepherd, Ring, Rothwell, and others, and several were induced to sign the total abstinence pledge. On the same evening the Wellington Hamlets Total Abstinence Society met at th...

Annie Leslie. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
^nuit ITcslie. (Continued from page 303J FULL of her new scheme of getting needle-work, Annie dressed herself in her best, and asked a neighbour to stay with her dear granny for an hour, while she went out. " I am going to the vicarage, to see if the lady there will give me some work; I will not be long." " Work," said the woman, laughing, " what work can you do, I should like to know ? Well, go along, I will stop with your grandmother, but you must make haste, for I have to get my hus band's dinner." " Thank you, neighbour Edwards," said Annie, " I will run as fast as I can all the way." As she passed the green, the school children were assembled there, for school was just over. " There is Annie Leslie going along the path," cried one; "I am sure it is, where can she be going ?" " So it is," said another. " Annie Leslie, Annie Leslie, come here: where are you going all in your Sunday clothes ?" " Can't stop," said Annie, shaking her head and still keeping the path. One of the most ...
Poetry. CHRISTIANS, SAVE! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
CHRISTIANS, SAVE! From haunts of vice and sin, From scenes of sadness, and of bitter woe, From gay and careless scenes where crimes begin, Sounds of deep meaning flow. Sad warning voices speak., Some in low whispers where the dying lie, Some with the idiot's drawl, the madman's shriek, Raise loud their bitter cry. The pauper clothed in rags, The felon in the prison's gloomy cell, The child neglected, who in misery begs, Their tales of sorrow tell: They tell of broken hearts, Of time, health, money, reputation, gone, And still,-deluded by the syren's arts, Her victims hasten on. Intemperance ! at thy shrines, The old, the young, the rich, the poor fall down; And he who wears the crown Of genius on his brow ; "Prophet and priest have erred" and kingly pride Has knelt before thy altar, and there bowed, Thy veriest slave beside. And more-e'en woman's knee Hath bent to offer gifts of costly price, Her loveliness, her worth, her purity, Laid on the shrines of vice : Yet more-the dark brow...
The Children's Model. MARCILIA EUPHROSINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
MARCILIA EUPHROSINE. BT M. MASSON. MARCILIA EUPHROSINE was the daughter of Apollodorus, a celebrated architect who flourished under the reign of Trajan. She was endowed with extraordinary" beauty; brought up in principles of great modesty, she would never consent either to be painted or modelled by the artists who vied with each other for the honour of having so beautiful a subject for the exercise of their genius; but, not withstanding her refusals and those of her parents, she everywhere beheld the canvas and the marble emulously re produce her features. The painters and sculptors of Rome went wherever they saw any chance of meeting her ; their pencils seized with avidity the expression of her beautiful counte nance, and the countour of her ma jestic figure ; and under the names of Hebe, of Flora, or of Venus, palaces and temples were adorned with her image. Marcilia Euphrosine was not only beautiful, she was also sensible, gentle, and learned. Familiar with the fine arts, as with...
Band of Hope Intelligence. BATHURST STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
BATHURST STREET. OCTOBEE 2.-Dissolving Views were exhibited by Mr. Crouch. He has a most valuable collection of 150 views, but about 70 of them occupied the evening. While the comic scenes were shown, an organ in the adjoining room, also kindly provided by Mr. Crouch, added to the entertainment. A charge for admission of 2d. each was made on this occasion, in aid of the funds, and &lt;£2 Os. 4d. was taken at the door. A larger number would have been pre sent but from the unfavourable state of the weather; but even this would not have deterred many from coming had the superior quality of the entertain ment been more generally understood. A vote of thanks to Mr. Crouch for his gratuitous services having been carried amidst loud and prolonged cheers, the meeting was concluded by singing the Doxology. October 9.- The Rev. Mr. Ridley gave a lecture on " Astronomy." Next week, the 16th instant, is the monthly night for " Recitations."
ALCOHOL PRODUCES DISAGREEABLE SENSATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
ALCOHOL PRODUCES DISAGREEABLE SENSATIONS. The morning after a debauch the drunkard awakes in a high fever. The whole body is parched; the palms of the hands in particular are like leather. His head is often violently painful. He feels excessive thirst; his tongue is white, dry, and stiff. The whole inside of the mouth is likewise hot and constricted, and the throat often sore. Then look at the eyes-how sickly, dull, and languid! The fire, which first lighted them up the evening before, is all gone. A stupor like that of the last stage of drunkenness still clings about them, and they are disagreeably affected by the light. The complexion sustains a great change: it is no longer flushed with gaiety and excitation, but pale and wayworn, indicating a pro found mental and bodily exhaustion. There is probably sickness, and appetite is totally gone. Even yet the delirium of intoxication has not left him, for his head still rings, his heart still throbs violently; and if he attempts getting...
