ALCOHOL ENSLAVES ITS VICTIMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
ALCOHOL ENSLAVES ITS VICTIMS. The sufferings of animal nature, occasioned by intemperance, are not to be compared with the moral agonies which convulse the soul. It is an immortal being who sins and suffers; and as his earthly house dissolves, he is approaching the judgment-seat in anticipation of a miserable eternity. He feels his captivity, and in anguish of spirit clanks his chain and cries for help. Conscience thunders, remorse goads, and, as the gulf opens before him, he recoils and trembles, and weeps and prays, and resolves, and promises, and reforms, and "seeks it yet again;" again he resolves, and weep and prays, and " seeks it yet again !" Wretched man ! he has placed himself in the hands of a giant who never pities, and never relaxes his iron grasp. L. Beechey, D.D.
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
PITT STREET. On the evening of the 1st October, a large number of persons attended to hear the Recitations delivered by the members. Among other pieces the following were given:-e' Cassa Bianca," " Drunkard's Dying Daughter," " The Indian Hunter," "Dialogue on Tem perance," " Water," " Farewell to Drunkenness," " Slavery," " Toil on." Many of these pieces were said with great skill, in many of the parts bril liantly realising the authors' meaning. The one on " Water" was the piece of the evening : of great length, and diffiicult metre, it was given without prompting or any hesitation. Those present were evidently highly gratified with the evening's entertainment. On the evening of the 8th October, Mr. G. J. Crouch commenced his series of instructive lectures to this society. Too much praise canjiot be accorded to this gentleman for his unwearied exer tions for the benefit of the youthful members of our various Bands of Hope. The great labour which must have been required in preparin...
The New Crockery Shop. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
Cj)e $ttfo Crotkg jljwjj. BY THE AUTHOR OF "THE GLASS OF GIN." (Continued from &lt;page 308J SEVERAL weeks had gone by, perhaps eight or ten, and Madeline had been made happy in hearing from Edward, who had now, though trade was dull, obtained some employment in Wor cester, when Mrs. Gussett's birth-day came round. This good soul had for years kept it as a little festival; but this year, on the very morning, a sudden order for twelve pairs of stays, far a ship about to sail, came in, and all hands had, therefore, to keep at work through the day, in the hope of getting done by early evening-time. Mrs. Gussett, however, determined that the tea should be a comfortable one; so, though no one could lose a minute, the great plum-cake was- cut up, the dish of extraordinary ham set forth, one small apprentice wholly de voted to the art of toasting, the best tea-tray, the best tea-things, the real silver spoons and sugar-tongs, and cream-jug, like a great butter-boat, were brought ou...
ALCOHOL SHORTENS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
ALCOHOL SHORTENS LIFE. Under the same law (whatever that law may be), which makes suicide a crime, must the neglect of health be a crime. For thus stand the two ac counts :-By suicide you have cut off a portion unknown from your life; days it may be, but also by possibility years. So the practical result may be the same in either case; or, possibly, the least is suicide. " Yes," you reply, " the practical results, but not the pur pose, not the intention-ergo not the crime." Certainly not: in the one case the result arises from absolute pre determination, with the whole energies of the will; in the other it arises in spite of your will (mbaning choice)-it arises out of human infirmity. But still the difference is as between choos ing a crime for its own sake, and falling into it by strong temptation. Casuistry, therefore, justly, and without infringing any truth of Christianity, urges the care of health as the basis of all moral action, because, in fact, of all voluntary action. Ever...
THE MURDERED WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 11 October 1856
THE MURDERED WIFE. SOME years since I was &nbsp; travelling from the &nbsp; state of New York into the province of Upper Canada, by the way of Cape Vincent and &nbsp; Kingston. Between the two channels of the river St. Lawrence we pass over Wolfe's or Grande Island, which is but thinly settled. It was in the depth of winter, late in the evening, when I called at an inn. As is but too common in public-houses, several gentlemen were sitting round the fireside engaged in conversation. A little interrupted by my coming in, they made a short pause. Soon one of the company resumed the conversation, and with the spirit of indignation, said, "Well, that man &nbsp; ought to be hung for such conduct to his wife," to which the company re- sponded in the affirmative. As I did not know the particulars of which they were conversing, I thought it was the slander and harshness of a bar-room conversation, and I asked for no ex- planation. The company soon dis- persed....

S., Collector.-Your censure is not altoge- ther undeserved. The virtues and attainments of Marcelia Euphrosine's life, were the patterns to be followed ; these were certainly marred by her unhappy death, but her virtues and not her fail- ings, were intended as a model Scriptural cha- racters, such as Abraham, Jacob, Daniel, and others, would be offered as models, but it certainly would not be intended that their faults ßhould be copied. The design of this series of articles is to select from history those of the young, who, by their devotion or genius, have rendered them- selves famous, and whose like qualities we should like to see in the youth around us.-Two quarters have been paid. MARTHA.-The suggestion is a good one. Of late years the juvenile cause has taken the prece- dence of the adult ; in it alone is embosomed the hope of a s...
Band of Hope Intelligence. ST. ANDREWS BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
ST. ANDREWS BAND OF HOPE. . m . i . . O il _ 1._ THE inaugural meeting 01 me auove Society was held last Wednesday, (22nd October) in the schoolroom attached to the church whose name it bears. The Kev. G-eorge King is its president, and Mr. R. W. Young is acting as secretary pro tem. The Lord Bishop of Sydney was expected to have taken part on the occasion, but we believe he was out of town, and by this means the meeting was denied the honour of his presence. The names of 130 children were en- rolled, who had previously gained the consent (in writing) of their parents : several of their friends joined the society themselves, and all present evinced the greatest interest in its objects. For the present meetings will be held monthly, but it is intended to make them fortnightly as early as possible. The evening of the first Wednesday in each month will be the meeting night; the next will take place on the 5th of November, when probably a lecture on so!ne scientific subject will be deli...

%\t lé êtzàtm Ste. U*(svm^ BT THE AUTHOR OF " THE GLASS OP GIN." ^^^j'^-l^^^^A THE next day the good staymaker re- turned to renew her wonted labours, and make divers preparations for Ma- deline's arrival after the wedding trip to Dover. Mrs. Gussett had not been home more than a day, before many things concerning little Sue at Moses' reached her ears. These rumours in- creased in their seriousness ; and at last a neighbour telling her that the child had not been seen for some days, Mrs. Gussett took the opportunity afforded by the leisure of Sunday even- ing to call with a respectable neighbour upon the before-mentioned official. He looked grave at the information, and returned with them to Moses' house. With some difficulty they gained ad- mittance, and found the old man and woman in their triangular room, in their usual dirt and. squalor, busy over their account-books. At first they said Sue was out; next, that she was ill, and could not be seen; but at last, when pressed upon th...
Poetry. TO THE YOUTH OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
TO THE YOUTH OF AUSTRALIA. I YOUNO Australians come and join us, Let our band be good and strong Temperance is the cause we speak of ; Total abstinence our song. Knowing well the strong temptations, That beset life's opening day ; We ask you all, and no exceptions, Join.us hand in hand to day. Cast your eyes for once around you, See the misery and the crime, Drunkenness, with all its evils Causes in this sunny clime ; Conscience then I think will whisper Hard indeed must be your heart If to lessen all this evil You'll refuse to bear a part. See the curse that ever follows In the wretched Drunkard's way ; Every step presents new horrors Whilst he fools his life away ! Would you help him? would you save him ? Give us then the friendly hand, Cast aside all foolish feeling Join our happy temperance band. J. P. M.
PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
PITT STREET. The meeting at the School ot Arts took place last Wednesday, (22nd.) CAPTAIN KENDALL, a staunch friend to the cause, (having been an abstainer for twenty-one years,) was to have taken the chair, but circumstances which he could not control, prevented him. A letter having been read by the secretary regretting his absence, Mr. Asshur, from Newcastle, was unanimously veted into his place. The CHAIRMAN said, that upon leaving Woolloomooloo that evening, lie had not the slightest idea of occupying the position he did, but that it was a matter of duty with him to embrace every opportunity of being useful, and though he was scarcely at all acquainted with the circumstances of the present meeting, still, upon being requested, he had consented to fill the post he held. He then called upon Mr. DAVIS, who moved the first resolution " Feeling that the happiness and pros- perity of the colony is greatly affected by the drinking customs of the community, this meeting considers that e...
The Children's Model. EMMA RAY. (From the Baptist Children's Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
Ut Chiton's Wahl EMMA RAY. (From the Baptist CMMreris Magazine.) J±;MMA ±ÍAY was twelve years old when she died. Dear child, how sweetly she fell asleep ! So calmly, so pleasantly, did she sink to repose, like a summer's sunset ! ' Folded her thin and wasted hands over the 3Toung heart so early stricken, opened her eyes that beamed with celestial hope, and looked around upon her friends with so sweet a smile, faintly murmured "Jesus," and then she slept ! It was just at evening, one day about the middle of June, when a little boy, perhaps eight years old, came to the door and said, "Mother wishes you would please to come to our house." " "Who is your mother?" I asked. " Mrs. Ray," was the reply. " What does your mother want," I inquired. " Sister Emma is sick," was his j answer; "is very sick, and wishes you would come and see her;" and the tears forced themselves down his cheek, in spite of his evident attempt to keep them back. He mentioned the street where they lived, and I said,...
Annie Leslie. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
"WHAT is your name?" said the I little girl, as she gently led Annie to ' the library. " I think I have seen you at the school." ." Annie Leslie, Miss, I live at the . cottage near the common ; my granny is very ill." " Your granny ! What, have you no father or mother ? " , " Oh, no ; they have been dead a long time." " You are an orphan then : oh, that is very sad." A beautiful expression of. tender sympathy passed over the young lady's face as she spoke. They had by this time reached the library, where sat the good vicar and his lady. " Mamma," said Amy, still holding Annie's hand, "Here is a little orphan wants to see you,-' Annie Leslie.' " " So you know her ! " Her mamma looked up from her work, and seeing Annie blushing and trembling, said, in a kind, gentle tone "Well, little Annie Leslie, what do you want with me ? You have been crying. What is the matter, my poor child?" "Oh, mamma," said Amy, "she was frightened because the bell rang so loud and James spoke rather sharply ...
POPULAR PREACHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
POPULAR PREACHER. I Mr. Spurgeon was born at Kelvedon, Essex, June 19th, 1834. His grand- father is the venerable Rev. James Spurgeon, Independent minister, Stam bourne, Essex. His father, Mr. John Spurgeon, minister of an Independent Church, Tollesbury, Essex. Mr. Spurgeon was educated at a respectable school in Colchester, and then spent one year in the Agricultural College, Maidstone, Kent, where, with ample leisure, he gathered scraps of botany, chemistry, and the applied sciences. He then removed to Newmarket, tho noted town of races, where he abode one year as an usher, and commenced speaking to the Sabbath schoolchildren, at which service scores of grown up persons attended to hear the boy preach to the children. He next removed to Cambridge, where he became usher in an establishment which happily received no boarders ; consequently, out of school-doors, the time was his own. Here he again spoke to the Sabbath school children, and was thus at sixteen and a half years, thought...
The Household. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
Wyt |)ottsc|jüá To PURIFY WATER.-Pounded alum possesses the property of purifying water. A large teaspoonful of pounded alum sprinkled in a hogshead of water (the water stirred round at the time), will, after the lapse of a few hours, by precipitating to the bottom the impure particles, so purify it, that it will be found to possess nearly all the fresh- ness and clearness of the finest spring water. A pailful, containing four gal- lons, may be purified by a single tea- spoonful. JOINING GLASS.-Melt a little isin- glass in spirits of wine, and add a small quantify of water. Warm the mixture gently over a moderate fire. When mixed by thoroughly melting, it will form a glue perfectly transparent, and which will reunite broken glass so nicely and firmly that the joining will scarcely be perceptible to the most critical eye. To REMOVE GREASE FROM CLOTH. Spots of grease may be removed by a diluted solution of potash, but this must be cautiously applied, to prevent injury to the cloth. St...
