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

BEING CONSISTENT. So, SM\ you have had the audacity to disobey my most positive commands, you have had the contemptible impudence to take advantage of my walking in the garden to mix with the sons of that man opposite ; you rush out the moment my back is turned, and dare to enter the door of the greatest enemy I have on earth. By heaven 1 if you were old enough, I would turn you into the street this moment.' ' But, papa-' 4 Silence, sir, how dare you reply ; no doubt you are acting upon the instructions you have received; no doubt your friends opposite rejoice in the success of their machinations. Ha, ha, ha! no doubt laughing, now that they have succeeded in sowing the seeds uf rebellion in my family.' ' But, papa-' ' Silence, you dog, or I'll crush you to death. That man opposite, not content with employing emissaries to traduce my character amongst the electors, and so cause my name to appear at the bottom of the poll-do you hear, sir, at the bot tom of the poll!-but he, by mean ...

Answer to Charade in No. 101. Glittering on the mountain's side, Sparkling through the dusky ground, In the ravines deep and wide, There the shining quartz is found. When with darkness overspread.

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 December 1859

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. 54. PHIL.-In answer to the question, ' What is the reason of the blue appearance of the sky ?'-I would send the following :-Atmospheric air is not absolutely colorless or transparent. Its pecu liar color, blue, is perceptible only when a con siderable depth or thickness of it is exhibited to view. When in the day time, we look up through fifty or sixty miles height of air, illuminated by solar light, we find that a decided and strong tint of blue is perceived. This tint belongs not to any thing which occupies the regions of the universe in which the heavenly bodies are placed, but to the vast mass of air through which these bodies i .are seen. 55. NORFOLK.-Two kinds of wine were in com mon use in the time of our Saviour-fermented wine, and boiled or inspissated wine, which was thick, like syrup, and was mixed with water or milk when used; the latter was the domestic beverage, and was not intoxicating. $ he quantity of wine, our Saviour made, could n...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 December 1859

CORRESPONDENCE. Australian Musical College.-This is a very spirited undertaking in a young country like our own, but the public will at once perceive the ad vantages to be derived from it. A perfect know ledge of music in all its details will be insured by the instructions of the principal professors in Sydney, headed by the well known Henry Marsh. We perceive by the prospectus that a scholar ship will be competed for every year by the students, and weekly examinations in the theory of music will take place. Altogether the plan of operations is most com plete, and must ensure a perfect knowledge of the Divine Art. Silent Tears.-A very pretty little son g, the words by H. Kendall, and the music by George Peck, has just been published. The melody is elegant, and the words are characterised by a poetical pathos that speaks of much talent in their young author.

CHRISTKINDLEIN. (FROM THE GERMAN OF RUCKERT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 December 1859

CHRIS T#K I N D L E I N. (FROM THE GERMAN OP RTJ'CKERT. How bird-like o'er the flakes of snow Its fairy footsteps flew ! And on its soft and childish brow How delicate the hue! And expectation wings its feet, And stirs its infant smile ; The merry bells their chime repeat; The child stands still the while. Then clasps in joy its little hand; Then marks the Christian dome; The stranger child, in stranger land, Feels now as if at home. It runs along the sparkling ground; Its face with gladness beams; It fralics in the blaze around, Which from each window gleams. The shadows dance upon the wall, Reflected from the trees ; And from the branches green and tall, The glittering gifts it sees. It views within the lighted hall The charm of social love; Oh, what a joyous festival > 'Tis sanction'd from above. . But now the childish heart's unstrung : ' Where is my taper's light ? And why no evergreen been hung With toys for me to-night ? ' In ray sweet htome there was a band Of holy love f...

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 December 1859

THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from page 498.) Norman would rather have had leave i to fetch Liddy, than all the rise of wages in the world. But as he could not help himself, he expressed his thanks for his master's kindness and withdrew. He already made up his mind that, in case of failure, he would ask Margaret Pool, to supply hia place, for she had always expressed her exceeding interest in, atjtl love for. Liddy. He had seen her "but once since his return, and then she had repeated the same thing ; though ehe rather avoided him than otherwise. Still he resolved to ask her; there was no harm even if she refused. Without staying to take his dinner at the usual time, Norman finished the estimates he had heen sent to take, and then, on his way to the shop, he went home without a moment's delay, for he was too anxious to eat or drink ; he went up stairs to the Pool's floor. He had been once there before, and that was on the occasion of Liddy's birthday. Tapping at the door, it was opened...

CHAPTER XXVIII. KENSINGTON. IN escaping from the house in the woods, in the dull twilight of that au tum evening, Liddy had met one of the villagers, a respectable old man ; and to him, in her wild terror, she told the story of the outrage. He pitied her, and would have fain had her return to the Halton's cottage, but the remembrance of her fathers peremptory commands, that she should repair to school till she heard from him, decided her to go onwards. The old man saw her safe therefore as far as the school-house, and then hastened back to the village. Here his meeting: with Liddy was soon told ; and long before the evening had waned, the news had spread wide and f;ir, and reached amongst other places the wheelyvright's cottage. ' I ain't a bit surprised,' said Mrs Hal ton, distressed, though chagrined, ' Liddy would have been safe and well enough here, if her father had let her stay. But I never saw a man so full of fancies. I suppose he thinks that my John likes the girl, which he...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. KIWI KIWI. Apteryx Australis.—SHAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 17 December 1859

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY, KIWI KIWI. Apteryx Australia.-SHAW. THIS bird is a native of New Zealand, and in some respects resembles the Emu of Australia. Its favorite locali ties are those covered with extensive and dense beds of fern, among which it conceals itself, and, when hard pressed by dogs (which are used for chasing it) takes refuge in crevices of the groilnd. In these latter it is said to construct its nest of dried fern and grasses, and to deposit its eggs, the number and color of which have not been clearly ascer tained. While undisturbed, the head is carried far back on the shoulders, with the bill pointing to the ground, but, when pursued, it runs with great swift ness, carrying the head elevated like the ostrich. It is asserted to be almost exclusively nocturnal in its habits, and it is by torch-light that it is hunted by the natives, who seek after it with the utmost avidity, the skins being highly prized for the dresses of the chiefs ; indeed so much are they value...
