Correspondence. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
?ttxmp\xhm. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Review. SIR,-It has seemed to me that the operations of the different Bands of Hope are too isolated, there seems but little of reciprocal feeling between them ; in a work so important as that which they have undertaken, united effort is indispensable to insure any great measure of success. The work is of gigantic magnitude, and the plans for its accomplishment should be drawn on an extensive scale. As a spectator, I have long looked on, and with no small degree of interest ; but it has seemed to me that what the movement is deficient of, is organisation. I know that this is somewhat difficult to obtain in a country so unsocial and unsettled as the one in which we live ; but I think it might be secured in a comparative degree. Any general com- mittee for their management would ruin them, societies never work better than when each individual committee is re- sponsible for its own advancement. But still something in the shape of a con- fer...
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
listora of ^ttrfralk CAPTAIN BLIGH soon found a formid- able antagonist to his arbitrary power in the person of Mr. M'Arthur. To vent his spleen against this gentleman, the Governor ordered his arrest on a very frivolous charge, founded on pre- sumptive evidence of his infringing upon the laws of the Customs. Mr. M'Arthur refused to acknow- ledge the validity of his summons, for which he was lodged in prison by the Advocate-General, who at once pro- ceeded to try him. As the Advocate General presided over the Court, it is easy to imagine how hopeless must be the prisoners case, and more especially when we inform our readers " that he was not a lawyer ; a man given up to inebriety, the laughing-stock of the whole colony, and frequently sat upon, tried, and sentenced prisoners even with death, in moments of rage and intoxication." He selected, moreover, to assist his legal inefficiency, the valuable aid of an attorney who had been sentenced here for forgery. (See Sidney s Australia.) ...
NO FIRESIDE DRAMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 25 October 1856
NO FIEESIDE DRAMS. BT THE EBV. CHARLES MARSHALL. T is no uncommon thing to ©YÙ ^ear Pe°p^e say» " ^ y°u K§ JL§§ lessen the number of public |s/^Qy£ houses you will increase pri w$$û&i vate drinking." Now this is not an argument, it is rather a predic- tion-a prophecy. As such, I do not believe it, having no faith in the pro- phetic character, or in the oracular verity of those who uttered it. It is a statement with a condition annexed an assertion without proof. To fulfil the prophecy, or prove the assertion, you must first diminish the number of public-houses. Then you will see whe- ther the prediction be true-yea or nay. Till you do so, yonr conditional un- proved assertion must go for nothing. It is a fallacious nullity. What are your distilleries and your public-houses? Why, tfeey are the reservoirs, the cisterns from^hich pri- vate houses are supplied with the " water of death.5* If you shut up the common wells, will there be more water consumed in families ? If public ...
FIRST TO NO. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
FIRST TO NO. II. At Shiloh.-Joshua xviii. 1. MARIA D. 1 Answers also from Elizabeth Medway, C. Earnshaw, Eliza Millar, Neill Quigg, and one poetical answer, which we give entire. A similar answer was received, with the same signature, to the first ques tion, but our limited space would not admit of its insertion. In Shiloh's plains, the Israelites The Tabernacle set, And there the God of truth and love Them wonderfully met. Above the mercy-seat of gold, Between the cherubs twain; The Holiest commun'd of the laws, Which were to govern men. Shiloh, prophetic name of him. The sovereign Prince of Peace: Who from the ceremonial law, Would afterwards release. Who would his tabernacle raise, In every willing heart, With love a precious mercy-seat, And faith a glorious ark. Oh! that we all may enter in, The Tabernacle fair, The Holiest has most skilfully For his redeemed prepared. REBECCA S.
The Household. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
%\t |)oust|oUi. ESCAPE FROM FIRE.-In case of a person's clothes being set on fire, in stead of throwing open the door and running into the road-as is too often done by the sufferer in extreme terror, or by those around him, who, instead of rendering aid, run out to seek it let the person (particularly if a female, whose dress ignites so rapidly) fall on the ground, and roll in a carpet, blanket, curtain, cloak, coat, or what ever thick woollen article may be at hand. If any other persons are pre sent, they should assist in doing this, and be particularly careful to keep all doors and windows shut, as every draught of air stimulates the flames, which it is the object to depress. MOTHS.-A small piece of paper, or linen, just moistened with turpentine, and put into the wardrobe or drawers for a single day, two or three times a year, is a sufficient preservative against moths.

The Children's Model. ELIZABETH CAZOTTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
ELIZABETH CAZOTTE. BT M. MASSON. IT is a consoling thought for humanity that it is always in times most fertile in atrocities, that modest virtues are most prominently displayed; the scaffold erected by crime has always been a pedestal for virtue, and the lower do iniquitous judges sink into infamy, the higher do the victims whom they strike ascend into the lofty regions to which God calls those who have suffered and mourned. If there are days of which we cannot speak without horror, there are also names which we can never pronounce without respect. If there are memories of blood which might almost lead us to question, whether man be the work of a God, there are also admirable ex amples of devotion which prove his celestial origin; and among these, who can forget the courageous resistance of Elizabeth Cazotte, when disputing with the executioners the life of her father. She was a young girl of sixteen, lively, intellectual, and sharing in the literary labours of the ingenious writer...
ON READING THE TERRIBLE STATISTICS OF INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
ON READING THE TERRIBLE STA TISTICS OF INTEMPERANCE. " We that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves."-Rom. xv. L 0 wherefore is our land in darkness shrouded ? Why are those thousand homes in ray less gloom ? The loftiest intellects so oft beclouded, And sinking to the shadows of the tomb? Why is the gospel call so long unheeded ? The heavenly message scorn'd 'mid sin and strife ? At home-abroad, the mission work im peded, And ignorance preferr'd to light and life? Why do the nations point in sad derision At her whose glory is her Christian name ? Arise, my countiy! and in deep contrition Haste thee to wipe away this blot of shame. By all the love that Christ himself hath taught us, That holy, pitying, self-denying love; By all his suffering martyrdom hath bought us, We are arraigned, our faithfulness to prove. 0! mockery vain, to pray against tempta tion, Whilst we with open eyes the danger seek. Indulgence is the road to desolation; The...

WAR ABROAD AND WAR AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
WAR ABROAD AND WAR AT HOME. Lord Panmure has laid before Par liament the statistics of our late deadly conflict in the Crimea and on the shores of the Euxine. The subject is very sad ; and to-day we look only at the loss of life. The soldiers who fell in battle were 1993 ; those who sank under their wounds were 1621 making in all 3614, the fruit of the sword. But 4297 died of cholera, and 11,451 of other diseases; and 2873, disabled by wounds and sickness, were discharged. In two years, then we have lost, say, just 22,000 men by this war. This is very dreadful, and thousands of wives and children and other relatives suffer and will suffer i the sad consequences, and will shed ; floods of tears for many days. Add to this &lt;£80,000,000 of money, the lowest calculation of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, over the ordinary ex penditure of the army and navy. We shall not seek to increase it. Excluding the discharged, we have lost 20,000 men and £80,000,000 sterling within two y...
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. HINTON.-We cannot say. The number of those who practise abstinence in this colony is far greater than is generally supposed. We have no mean9 of ascertaining. Sixteen years ago, when the temperance societies were very flourishing, there was said to be above 10,000 consistent members. There are great numbers now who are highly favourable to the movement, and who, though not disposed to take a prominent part themselves, would encourage and support others in their efforts. MANGROVE.-We would refer our correspondent to the first article in No. 20 of the present series. SARAH BELL.-Riddles and conundrums might be interesting, but in our opinion, not suitable.-The receipt was given from the best authority. We shall be most happy to receive from Sarah, or any other of our numerous friends, contributions for the " Household." SYDNEY : Printed by F. M. STOKES, 8, King-street East (opposite the Supreme Court).
GO AHEAD! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
GO AHEAD! Never fear a righteous cause ; Go ahead! Throw yourself completely in ; Conscience shaping all your laws, Manly,-through thick and thin, Go ahead! Do not ask who'll go with you; Go ahead! Numbers!-spurn the coward's plea; If there be but one or two, Single-handed though it be, Go ahead! Though before you mountains rise, Go ahead! Scale them !-certainly you can; Let them proudly dare the skies What are mountains to a man ? Go ahead! Though fierce waters round you dash, Go ahead! Let no hardship baffle you; Though the heavens roar and flash, Still-undaunted, firm and true Go ahead! -Louisville Journal.
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 8 November 1856
iistora of ILustralk IN our last issue we had advanced to 1 the period when Governor Macquarie arrived to supersede the Lieutenant Governor Johnstone, who had forcibly assumed the reins of Colonial Govern ment, by deposing Governor Bligh. For this act, although according to uni versal approbation, and at the express desire of the colonists themselves, he (Lieutenant Johnstone) was tried by Court Martial, found guilty, and cashiered. His successor, (Colonel Macquarie) on the assumption of power, immediately forwarded the fol lowing dispatch to the Home Govern ment, which so aptly describes the general state of the colony, that we insert it verbatim,-it is as follows: " I found the colony, on my arrival, barely emerging from infantine imbe cility, suffering from various privations and disabilities; the country impene trable beyond forty miles from Sydney; agriculture in a yet languishing state; commerce in its early dawn; revenue unknown; threatened with famine; distracted by faction;...
