No title [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
Qjf^VHAT a hard-working world this is ! Thousands oí men, women, and ü\tV even children are obliged to rise up early and betake themselves to some set occupation, which they cannot leave until the dark shadows of evening close around them, and then they homeward bend their weary steps. Arrived at home, they can do little more than betake themselves to the some times hard couch, which even their hard work is only able to procure. They have no time to " range the pleasant fields ; " no time for the quiet evening chat with kind and loving friends ; they can join in neither gladsome song nor holy psalm, nor listen to the sweet harmony that charms the richer home ; the poet writes in vain for them, and history, with her limnings of the past, is a sealed book-for they have no time, and no inclination to seek after any of these things. What a pleasure to such people is a HOLIDAY ! How they exult in the thought that for one day they are not to stoop down over the daily task, but are free to...
The Children's Model. JUVENILE ABOURERS. Concluded from p. 41. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
fifo Clriktn's ftM JUVENILE LABOURERS. j BY KATE PTEE. Concluded from p. 41. A FEW days before the vacation closed, Ellen and her brother were invited to spend the evening at Harry Singleton's. Wine was introduced as usual, which Ellen politely declined taking; but Arthur had not the moral courage as yet to follow out his half-formed inten tion, and despite an encouraging look from his sister, he accepted the proffered glass with but slight hesitation. They had spent most of the evening in games suitable to their age, as on a former occasion, and became somewhat hot and thirsty ; Arthur, feeling the exhilira ting effects of one glass, was tempted, while Ellen was in another part of the room, to take a second. This was too much for a boy of ten years, who was but little accustomed to wine at any time ; so when he got into the open air, he could scarcely walk steadily, and poor Ellen felt ashamed and very un happy. Their mamma was sitting up for them, but Ellen managed by talking pret...
UNITED KINGDOM ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
UNITED KINGDOM ALLIANCE. The meetings of the United Kingdom Alliance in the city of Manchester last week, impart courage and firmly estab lish hope. We shall not advert to the bright prospects opened up in the United States and British America, though success in the great enterprise in that country cannot obtain in the face of the world without powerfully in fluencing the kindred people of the British Isles ; but we refer to the po sition of the Alliance, its success, and the opposition with which it has to contend. The institution is grafted on one of an older date, and possessed of a bolder character. Our total abstinence institutions have done great things. Vast numbers have leagued against in temperance, whose sun might have set in darkness ; thousands have been emancipated, who had been hastily rushing down the decline to perdition ; and hosts of juveniles, mighty and full of promise in their early prime, have grasped sword and shield, and nobly taken their place under our bann...

To all you love, and all you know, And all your voice can reach. Child. But there are dying souls, mamma, In many a distant land. Mother. Well, send them men to preach the word, That they may understand. Child. How can I send them men, mamma, Who am so weak and poor ? Mother. Help those who do, and that with prayer, A blessing to secu...

JUVENILE TEMPERANCE HALL. The anniversary of the Juvenile Total Abstinence Society was held on Monday and Tuesday, 2nd and 3rd of February.

OUR CIRCULATION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
OUR CIRCULATION. To those of our friends who would desire to see the BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL continue in existence, we would appeal, for an effort on their part to obtain subscribers. We need a circu lation of 2000 to make it in the lowest sense remunerative. If those who are interested in its welfare would obtain half a dozen subscribers among their immediate friends, this number would soon be obtained. Our most strenuous efforts without their help will be un availing-we leave its destiny in their hands.
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. NIGHT THE FIRST. THE "SICKLE AND SHEAF." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
%m ftigljts in a $ar-|lMmi. BT T. 8. ARTHUR. NIGHT THE FIRST. THE "SICKLE AND SHEAF." TEN years ago, business required me to pass a day in Cedarville. It was late in the afternoon when the stage set me down at the "Sickle and Sheaf," a new tavern, just opened by a new landlord, in a new house, built with the special end of providing " accom modations for man and beast." As I stepped from the dusty old vehicle in which I had been jolted along a rough road for some thirty miles, feeling tired and hungry, the good-natured face of Simon Slade, the landlord, beaming cs it did with a hearty "welcome, was really . I a pleasant sight to see, and the grasp of j his hand was like that of a true friend. I felt, as I entered the new and neatly furnished sitting-room adjoining the bar, that I had indeed found a comfort able resting-place after my wearisome journey. " All as nice as a new pin," said I, approvingly, as I glanced around the room, up to the ceiling-white as the driven snow-and over ...
RESTORATION OF THE MAINE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
RESTORATION OE THE MAINE LAW. The following cheering news has recently been received from the Hon. Neal Dow, and will be read with ex tensive interest, conveying as it does, the exhilarating information that the recent elections in Maine have restored to power the great party identified with the glorious Prohibitory Liquor Law of Maine : "The Maine-law, after a trial of # five years, was repealed by a party pledged in favour of ' a suitable pro hibitory law,' and a license law was enacted in its stead. In Maine, we were certain that the triumph of the anti-Maine-law party would be short, because we were confident that a large majority of our people were in favour of prohibition. The license system being revived, as it was in April last, our streets were filled once more with grog-shops and drunken men, and our people disgusted and alarmed at the frightful exhibitions of unchecked rum selling. " The Maine-law men have waited impatiently for the day of reckoning to come, when the part...
A GOOD RECOMMENDATION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
A GOOD RECOMMENDATION. I " PLEASE, sir, don't you want a cabin boy?"-"I do want a cabin-boy, my lad, but what's that to you ? A little chap like you aint fit for the berth." " Oh, sir, I'm strong ; I can do a great deal of work if I aint so very old." " But where do you come from ? You don't look like a town boy. Run away from home, hey ?"-" Oh, no, indeed, sir ; my father died, and my mother is very poor, and I want to do something to help her. She let me come." " Well, my lad, where are your letters of recommendation? Can't take any boy without a character." Willie had never thought of its being necessary to have letters from the minister, or teachers, or from some proper person, to prove to strangers that he was an honest and good boy. Now, what should he do? He stood in deep thought, the captain meanwhile cu riously watching the working of his expressive face. At length he put his hand into his bosom and drew out his little Bible, and without one word, put it into the captain's ...
The Canker, Discontent. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 14 February 1857
%\t Canker, gkoutoi BT THE LATE O. MOGRIDGE, ESQ. WHEEE one is altogether free from the canker of discontent, two, at the very least, are afflicted with it. The mouth betrays the disease, but its seat is the centre of the heart. j " I wish I was a butcher's boy," said ' a fishboy, who, with a well supplied basket, was carrying on a profitable trade, crying out at the top of his voice, * Live mackerel ! live mackerel !' " " It's fine to be a butcher's boy," to have as much as he can eat and drink, and a horse to ride on. Here am I tramping about in all weathers, hardly getting salt to my porridge. If I clears a trifle by selling a few fish, by the time I've filled my belly, and paid for my night's lodging, it's ten to one if I've enough to buy any more, and then I'm obliged to sell for some body else : I wish I was a butcher's boy." Perhaps you do, for you were once a butcher's boy ; you lost your place through misconduct, and are not at all likely to get another. It will be better t...
AUSTRALIAN BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
AUSTRALIAN BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. A MEETING was convened by circular at the School of Arts, on Tuesday evening, 17th February, for the pur pose of taking into consideration the present position of this journal, and for receiving an annual subscription towards its support, over and above the ordinary subscriptions to the work itself. Mr. Etherington was voted to the chair. A statement was made to the effect that, if left to its own resources, the magazine must eventually suspend its issues, from the heavy periodical expense of publication, and that assistance to only a small extent would enable it to overcome its present diffi culties. A statement of its receipts and expenditure for the past year was read, from which it was evident that the JOURNAL was rapidly advancing towards a paying condition; and yet, with all that, it must stop unless the call was responded to. Messrs. G-. J. Crouch, H.C.Burnell, J. J ones, J. Hawley, and others spoke in its behalf. A suggestion was made that th...
RISE AND PROGRESS OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
RISE AND PROGRESS OF AUSTRALIA. Concluded from p. 51. INTO its political condition I could hardly expect you at present to enter so fully as no doubt you will be inte rested enough to do as you approach manhood. It is right, however, that I should say a few words to you even on this head ; because it is very probable in deed that you, the rising generation, will be called upon to play some part in it; and who of you knows what that part may be ? As an easy com parison to your minds, I may observe that a station, a farm, a business, or a profession cannot be managed without a head, a responsible party to direct its daily proceedings. Neither can the head do much without its subordi nates. It is the same with a country. It cannot manage or govern itself. For this reason we have at present placed over us a Governor, the Queen of England's representative; under him there are two Houses of Parliament called the Legislative Council and Legislative Assembly. The members of the latter, as I...
THE DRUNKARD'S GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
THE DRUNKARD'S GRAVE. BY W. B. BAKER, NEW ZEALAND. " FOKEIGNER, can you sleep on sacred ground ? " exclaimed a voice near me, in tones of eagerness and surprise, which roused me from a profound reverie ; " know you not that the bones of an Englishman lie beneath you ? " I was reclining at the foot of a shady kowhai tree watching the ever varying tints with which the setting sun illumined the western sky, and soothed by the sigh of the summer breeze as it fitfully played through the foliage above me, and the rippling murmur of the streamlet that flowed at my feet; mind and memory had wandered from things present to' indulge in retrospective reminiscencies of bygone days. The exclamation, however, recalled my er rant thoughts, and on looking up I re cognised in the person of the speaker an elderly wahine,* whom I had known for several years, but with whose history I was imperfectly acquainted. Her manners and language unmistakeably bespoke an intimacy with the habits and feelings of E...
Old Caleb. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
©lit Cdtk BY MRS. REDFORD, (Author of " Annie Leslie£c. $c.) " The cottage homes of England How beautiful they stand.!" THERE is a cottage, no matter where, for none of you will feel disposed to take a long journey for the purpose of looking at it; though many would travel far to visit the stately halls of some noble lord. It is a small whitewashed cottage, enclosed in about half an acre of garden-ground. When I knew it, its occupant was a very old man, who was poor, the produce of the garden being the only means of subsistence for himself and his little grandchild, Jenny; and as he could not work so briskly as in former days, his earnings were but small. " Caleb "Williams" was bis name, but the villagers called him '. Good Old Caleb." I am told he gained this appellation on account of his charitable and peace-making spirit; for if two neighbours disagreed, Caleb was sure to try and heal the heart; and many in the village who would perhaps have been at enmity for the remainder of th...
The Children's Model. JOHNNY WOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
JOHNNY WOOD. BY KATE PYEE. LITTLE JOHNNY WOOD was a smart active boy, much beloved in his native village, because ever ready to do an act of kindness for his neighbours. To run on an errand, to help some tired little playmate carry a heavy burden, or in any way to make himself useful, was the delight of his young heart. I assure you it made Johnny's smile the sweeter, and his cheek the ruddier thus to be occupied, for industry and happiness are very closely united. But his home was not a very happy one, for his father was a drunkard. Oh I what a sad example for a brave hearted little boy. His gentle, patient mother had early taught him many noble lessons, and kept from him as much as possible the sad truth which darkened her own weary lot. To strengthen him in good principles she sent him to the Sunday School. In this school had been formed a Band of Hope : that is, the children who wished it, and whose parents did not object to their doing so, had signed the temperance pledge ; and...
