TEMPERANCE ITEMS. MANNING RIVER.—THE TEMPERANCE CAMPAIGN IN THE BUSH. To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 31 December 1859
TEMPERANCE ITEMS. « MANNING RIVER.-THE TEMPERANCE CAM PAIGN IN THE BUSH. To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. biR,-As one ot the main objects 01 your publication, which I am glad to observe is getting more and more widejy circulated in the country districts, is the advancement of the Temperance Cause, I think it would be well for your friends and readers in different parts to send reports of facts shewing the necessity of urging forward the Temperance move ment, and accounts of the efforts already made. For instance, on this river, though comparatively a quiet, sober district, there has been a series of most sad sacri fices to the demon of Intemperance. Not many weeks since, for example, two men were seen to enter a boat at Taree, in order to cross the river. When the boat reached the opposite bank, it contained but one man and a hat that had evidently belonged to another. The old man was too drunk to remember what happened in the boat, or how he came into the boit. He an...

I CAN'T ACCOUNT FOR IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 31 December 1859
I CAN'T ACCOUNT FOR IT. * HEBE you, Tom, what the mischief do you call this; do you think 1 gave fifty guineas for this blood filly for you to kill it with 3'our abominable ignorance?-I want to keep this animal in good health, and not destroy it, by feeding it in this ridiculous manner; I watU it to increase in bone, muscle, and beauty, and not to rear it for food for dogs. If you give it food that common sense would tell you was most pernicious, how will it appear ©n the race course? Why, it would not hare fire, life, or power to blow wind in the tail of the commonest hack that ever went to market on three legs. Upon my word, I do believe that the older some people grow, the more foolish they be eome. Some people take charge of the noblest animals in creation-profess to understand theai, and feel most tremen dously offended if you tell them they flon't^and yet they know no more about a horse, than a cow does about handling a musket-' I can't account for it.'' * Please, sir, there b...
PET PERENNIALS—No. IV. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 31 December 1859
t ' PET PERENNIALS - No. IV. BY PATTY PARSLEY. CHAPTER I. I said, ' To other lands I'll roam, Where fate may smile on me, love I said, ' Farewell, my own ©Id home 1' And I said,' Farewell, to thee love!' -GERALB GMFFIN. THE scene was a private room in Lon don hotel;-the speakers, a maiden lady of two score and ten, and a sparkling, glossy-tressed, dark-eyed damsel, whose rich full accent betrayed that she was a daughter of the Green Isle. So, perhaps, was the elder lady, but, if so, a long residence in the metropolis, and the struggling life of an unprotected female, amid its sharp, take-care-of-number-one, every-inan-for-himself atmosphere, had dashed the rich brogue that fell from the lips of the younger with a gush that (if sounds may be compared to tastes) re sembled the ruby, red wine-had dashed, in the elder, that brogue with the vinegar and quinino of life. * I wish 1 could undo it,' said the younger lady sadly. * Oh, dear aunt, was it needed that I should put thousands of mi...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE STORM PETREL. Thallassidroma Nereis — GOULD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE. STORMPETREL. Thallassidroma Ker ein - UOULD. To give a description of the above, We cannot-do better than quote from Gould, who says, - ' During a calm which occurred on my passage from Hobart Town to Sydney, in May, 1839, I obtained four examples of this new species of Petrel ; and I subsequently observed it flying about in considerable numbers near the eastern entrance of Bass's Straits ; I also met with it on my passage home in 1840, between New South Wales and New Zealand, further than this I have little to com municate concerning it. The Thallas" sid) oma Nereis is a species readily dis"" tinguished from its congeners by the 1 total absence of any white mark on the rump, the want of which first drew my attention, and induced me to suspect it, as it proved to be, a different species from any I had before seen ; my readers will therefore easily imagine with what pleasure I descended the ship's side, and sallied forth in a little ' dingy' to procur...

ABT AND SCIENCE. | _._ i A LIFE-PRESERVING COAT.-Some expe riments have been made at the Mayfield Baths with a waterproof coat, manu factured by Messrs. Macintosh and Co^ The coat contained a number of air-tight compartments, which can be inflated by the wearer in a couple of minutes. When' in th^ water the coat not only supported the wearer, but, so buoyant was it, that he was enabled to support two others. The coat is furnished with pockets high above the line which the water reaches, which can be filled with provisions and valuables.

DOMESTIC LIFE IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
DOMESTIC LIFE IN AUSTRALIA. BY CAROLINE CHISHOLM. MB. and Mrs. Grant had been on a four days' visit to their friends, Mr. and Mrs. Joyes, at Goulburn, and on their return home to their own station, the conversa tion naturally turned on the pleasure they derived by their visit. . A fine family that,' said Mrs. Grant. ' Splendid home; capital fellow, Mr. Joyes is,' replied Mr. Grant ; * such a fond mother, too, is Mrs. Joyes.' . She'll be missed when she dies ; what order; dinners so well cooked and served up; everything neat, clean, and tidy about the house.' How sharply she looks after the servants ! a more clever managing wife, mother, and mistress I never saw ;' and with one of woman's sweetest smiles, added, as she looked archly up at Mr. Grant, ' and she keeps her husband in excellent order too.' It is here hardly necessary to add that this playful challenge, at the close of this speech, was requited as it was ex pected it would be,--the fond husband stooped down-and remarked, '...

PREFACE TO VOL. V. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
PREFACE TO VOL. V. ? IN closing the FIFTH VOLUME of " THE AUSTRALIAN HOME COMPANION,"' we feel a glow of pride at our position. That we are still enabled to hold our ground, and to cater for the reading public, is a subject of great rejoicing to us in these times so fatal to Australian literature. Our difficulties have been numerous, but we are steady in our faith of success ; and though not pandering to the morbid, vicious taste, so paramount in the reading world, still find many readers. In the past year we have added considerably to our List of Subscribers, and have many promises for the coming year. We purpose still adding to the attractions of our work as means admit. We shall continue to present Histories, Amusing Tales and Essays, Poems, &c., all strictly of a moral tone. In addition, we intend to add to the attractions of the Journal, by giving more space to the News of the Day, and by a series of articles on Botany. This subject will be illustrated, and carefully di...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO, ANECDOTES OF JULIUS OESAB. WHEN Caesar was told all tbat had happened at Rome, he wished very much to go there immediately, but as no general was allowed to leave his army without an order from the senate, and he must not venture to take his soldiers along with him, he felt quite at a loss what to do, iMost people in his situation would hav* remained quiet, and left bis friends to manage his affairs for him at Rome ; but Ceeaar could not rest inactive ; and such success had always followed him in' whatever he undertook, that he almost believed that nothing could possibly happen to him but good fortune. After considering for a long time what it would be best to do. Caesar resolved at last that he would go to Rome accord ing to his own wishes; and he hoped' that enough of his friends would be there to defend him from harm, and also to destroy Pompey and his party entirely. As Caesar intended to take only a part of his soldiers with him, he did not wish the rest o...
SALLY LUNN TBA CAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
SALLY LUNN TBA CAKES. Take one pint of milk quite warm, a quarter of a pint of thick small-beer yeast: put them into a pan with flour sufficient to make it as thick as batter, cover it over, and let it stand till it bas risen as high as it will, t. e about two hours : add two ounces of lump sugar, dissolved in a quarter of a pint of warm' milk, a quarter of a pound of butter rub bed into your flour very fine,-then make you dough the same as for French rolls, &c. ; let it stand half an hour : then make up your cakes, and put them on tins : when they have stood to rise, bake them in a quick oven. Care should be taken never to put your yeast to water or milk too hot, or too cold, as either extreme will destroy the fermentation. In summer it should be lukewarm,-in winter a little warmer,-and in very cold weather, warmer still. When it has first risen, if you are not prepared, it will not hurt to stand an hour. BAKED HAM. A ham (if not too old) put m soak for an hour, taken out a...

HINTS FOR HOMES. THE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
i HINTS FOR HOMES. THE TEETH. DISSOLVE two ounces of borax in three pints of water ; before quite cold, add thereto one tea-spoonful of tincture of | myrrh and one table-spoonful of spirits | of camphor ; bottle the mixture for use". 1 One wine-glass of the solution, added to j half a pint of tepid water, is sufficient for each application. This solution, ap plied daily, preserves and beautifies the teeth, extirpates tartarous adhesion, pro duces ajpearl-like whiteness, arrests de cay, and induces a healthy action in the gums. EYELASHES. The mode adopted by the beauties of the East to increase the length and strength of their eylashes is simply to clip the split ends with a pair of scissors about once a month. Mothers perform the operation on their children, both male and female, when they are mere infants, watching the opportunity whilst they sleep ; the practice never fails to produce the desired effect. We recommend it to the attention of our fair readers, as a safe and innocent ...
