Poetry. MY NEIGHBOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
MY NEIGHBOUR. i He was prudent, brave, and gentle, Living as a man should do ; K ept a conscience, did his duty, , Loved his fellows-served them too. Modest, virtuous, self-reliant, Rich and learned, wise and true. He had faults, perhaps had many ; But one fault above them all Lay lik.3 heavy lead upon him, Tyrant of a patient thrall Tyrant seen, confessed, and hated, Banished only to recall. "Oh! he drank?" "His drink was water!" " Gambled ?" " No ! he hated play." " Then, perchance, a tenderer failing Led his heart and head astray !" " No ! both honour and religion Kept him in the purer way." " Then, he scorned Life's mathematics, Could not reckon up a score, Pay his debts, or be persuaded te Two and two were always four." " No ! he was exact as Euclid, Prompt and punctual-no one more." "Oh ! a miser ?" " No !"--" Too lavish ?' " Worst of guessers, guess again !" " No ! I'm weary hunting failures ; Was he seen of mortal ken, Paragon of marble virtues, Quite a model man of men ?" "...

Miss Haberfield was still spared to me. I loved her dearly ; for I could not forget how her character had shone forth in the dreary hour of bereavement and suffer ing. I was at last called to part with her also. A woman in the village came to our cottage one day to ask relief. I was not aj; home. She only saw Miss Haberfield, She said that her daughter had just recovered from a fever, and that she required nourishing food ; that her husband had been out of work for some time, therefore she was not able to pro core what was necessary. When I re turned, Miss Haberfield related the circumstance to me. The woman had brought the infection to the house: my friend caught the fever. In her delirium, she called ...

Henry Bardner. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
Henrg (Satimer, (Continued from page hi.) " THAT must be your primary act ; but another act must follow, which God will give you grace and strength to perform if you earnestly pray for it-you must renounce the intoxicating cup entirely and for ever. [ have seen, alas ! how you have been tam pering with and fighting against the demon of Intemperance for years past. I now warn you to tamper no longer with it. The love of the mad excite ment it produces has become a disease in you, and your safety consists in entire abstinence alone ; that is the cure for the disease, and the only one. You have been advised to try modera tion in the use of strong drinks, and you cling to the idea that you are able to follow it. I tell you emphatically, Henry, you are mistaken ; you have no more power to restrain your craving appetite after you have aroused it by drinking one glass of wine, than a ! child has the power to stem a moun I taia torrent. Persevere in trying j moderation, and your ruin is ine...
Selections. HUMAN FREIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
St Iuít 011 s. HUMAN FREIGHT. A negro woman, in going from Boston to New York by train, persisted, according to the principle of the Dred Scott decision, in being charged not as a passenger, but as property or freight. She got off by paying the usual rate for goods of five cents per foot. In due time the con ductor came for his money, and upon extending his itching palm, was some what astonished at receiving the precise sum of ten cents. " What do you mean ?" he exclaimed, " the fare to New York is five dollars." " Yas, yas, I know dat, for white folks-folks what am folks, but Fte nobody ; Fee freight, I is. Yah, Yah. Poor rule as don't work bof ways ; five cents a foot, here they is !" said she, extending a pair of enormous perambula tors for the inspection of the conductor and us all. The nonplussed functionary stood undetermined for a moment, among the shouts of the passengers, until an idea of compromise occurred to him, as he exclaimed. "Well, if you are freight, take yourself ...
LITTLE HARRY'S PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
LITTLE HARRY'S PRAYER A FEW days ago, I called to enjoy half an hour's agreeable conversation with a very intelligent lady friend, residing in a pleasant part of the suburbs of Sydney. As she sat in the spacious verandah by which the pretty cottage she re sides in is surrounded, conversing upon topics dear to the heart of every Christian, the lady's only son (whom we shall cali Harry), a remarkably handsome little boy, about four years of age, came running to his mamma, his chesnut curls flowing in rich luxuriance, and his full, black eyes sparkling with animation, to show her how very cleverly he had made a belt with the hoop of his tambourine ; and then, to prove its peculiar musi cal qualities, he commenced running up and down the verandah, until our voices were drowned with his merry laugh and the jingle of his new fashioned belt. Our conversation now naturally enough turned upon the boy ; and many were the anecdotes which I listened to, delivered in â fond mother's partial styl...
Bardening. PEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
PEAS. THE most suitable to Australia are, Bishop's early dwarf, the early paragon er Charlton, the dwarf Prussian blue, the dwarf green marrow fat, and the blue scimitar. The first and second are for the early crop, the two next are good yielding peas. The scimitar, from its growing so tall, exhausts the ground more than the others. A good soil, but not too rich, is requisita for peas. They are sown in rows from two feet to two and a half feet apart, the dwarf being sown the closer. The rows should run .north and south. As they grow, the earth should be drawn round them, and stakes fixed for the climbers. The pea is said to contain a very large pro portion of farinaceous matter, and ranks next to the French bean in nutritious properties. A bushel of peas weighs about fifty-four lbs., and contains seventy five per cent, of nutriment. When peas are intended for cattle, they succeed an exhausting crop, as rich soil causes them to throw out too much haulm. Ground peas form excellent foo...
March. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
KITCHEN GARDEN.-Sow onions, cab bages, turnips, early frame peas, carrots, radishes, beets, French peas, and small salads of different kinds, and other vege tables intended for early use. Transplant successive crops, continue watering cu cumber and other plants accordingly as may be required. This is the best time foi planting celery; if deferred any longer the plants will not be sufficiently strong to stand the weather. Spinach beds require to be weeded and sorted, and a little top dressing added. The main crop of onions may now be gathered in, roped, and hung up, and the same with the various seeds as they ripen. Lay straw berries eighteen inches apart in the rows, and twelve inches between each plant.
The Children's Portfolio. THE COCKS-COMB. A TRUE STOKY OF LONDON STREETS.—IN SEVEN CHAPTERS V.—MARGARET'S CONSCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
THE COCKS-COMB. A TRUE STOKY OP LONDON STREETS.-IN SEVEN CHAPTERS v.-MARGARET'S CONSCIENCE. But to return to Margaret. She went home and tried to feel thankful and happy, but there was an uneasiness in her mind which she could not quite get rid of, and a good thing it was for her that she could not. No one is more to be pitied than the person who can do wrong, and yet feel perfectly comfort able. She got a loaf of bread and a little milk for supper, and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and even little Jessie seemed less languid and fretful than usual, but Margaret was dissatisfied with herself, and that cast, so far as she was concerned, a cloud over everything. She went to bed and to sleep, but her rest was not so sweet and refreshing as it ought to have been after the labours of the day ; perhaps she was over-tired, or perhaps the disturbed state of her mind kept her from perfect repose ; certain it is that she awoke very early without feeling much refreshed. " Why, Mar...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
fy/UST at the present time, when all the Sydney world is astir about Mr. JJ PLUNKETT, and his dismissal from the National Board, we would take ^ the opportunity of expressing a few thoughts about that prosy subject, education. . Now, every one acknowledges that education is of the highest importance ; that a state or a nation to be truly great must be educated. But then comes the quarrel about the method, and while legislators are debating the respective meiits of different schemes, the poor man finds that his children are growing up uninstructed around him. As we jot down our rambling thoughts beneath the shade of our beau tiful University, and as we look over the whole of Sydney in all its dustiness, we fancy that the angel on the gable of our hall may be the type of the guardian angel of the city, waiting to execute its commission from Heaven, to rescue from the sea of misery the ignorant and vicious. Do you look through Sydney-see how the people are given to backbiting, to indul...
The Sousebold. A RECEIPT FOR MAKING UNFERMENTED WINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
A RECEIPT FOR MAKING TJNFER MENTED WINE. rRESS the juice from the ripe grape and strain it, and as soon as possible, bottle it, and have a boiler over the fire filled with cold water, place the bottles in the cold water, and leave the water for about two hours-and-a half, with the bottles standing in it up to their necks, then take them out, cork them carefully, and seal them over to keep them air-tight; place them in a cool place, and it will keep for years without fermentation. On a cork being drawn from a bottle, it will ferment in a few days.
MARRIAGE AND SMALL INCOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 February 1858
MARRIAGE AND SMALL INCOMES. A discussion is going on at present in the London press, on the disinclination to marriage exhibited by young men now-a-days, owing to the false state of society, young people deeming it unad visable to marry on small incomes, in stead of beginning as their fathers and mothers did. The immorality to which this often leads is set forth and deplored. THE HUSBAND'S BEST EXCUSE.-" I wag detained upon business, my dear." Men who make money, rarely saunter ; men who save money, rarely swagger. " A man" said one of the Jewish fathers, ';should be prepared for death the day before ; but, as he do^s not know when that day is, he should always be pre pared." A good man shines amiably through ali the obscurity of his low fortunes, and a wicked man is a poor little wretch in the midst of all his grandeur.-MASON. A physician has been defined as an unfortunate gentleman, who is every day required to perform a miracle-namely, to reconcile health with intemperance. ASTER...

Cjje gttteatioii of $ùt$tùtm. As the festivities of our own anniversary, but so lately celebrated, recurred to our mind, tho thought suggested itself, that a glance at the way in which Brother Jonathan keeps his national day might not be altogether uninterest ing. The circumstances commemorated by these holidays are widely dis similar, stilly the two countries respectively are the great themes of interest. The following is from the pen of au American : FOURTH of July in the United States --It is the signal-the 1 banner on the outward wall " for sin and shoot ing crackers, pedantry and pin-wheels, oranges and orations, sky-blue toilettes and sky-rockets.

MORAL INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 March 1858
MORAL INFLUENCE* Away among the Alleghaaies there ia a spring, so small that a single ox, in a Summer's day, could drain it dry. It steals its unobtrusive way among the hills, till it spreads in the beautiful Ohio. Thence it stretches away a thousand miles, leaving on its banks more than a hundred villages and cities, and many thousand cultivated farms, and bearing on its bosom more than half a thousand steamboats. Then joining the Missis sippi, it stretches away and away some twelve hundred miles more, till it falls into the great emblem of eternity. It is one of the great tributaries of the ocean, whichj obedient only to God, shall roll aud roar till the angel, with one foot on the sea and the other on the land, shall lift up his hand to heaven, and swear I that time shall be nö longer. So with moral influence. It is a rill, a rivulet, a river, an ocean, boundless and fathomless as eternity; Montreal Witness
The Sawyer's Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 March 1858
BT THE AUTHORESS OF GERTRUDE. THERE are scenes which entrance the painter and poet-nay, which make men painters and poets-scenes where Nature stores her choicest treasures, where her jewels lie in wild disorder and profusion, to be scantily drawn from to adorn here and there her ruder works- Such are the Cedar Gullies, such was the one we would now pourtray. The locality among blacks and sawyers was named, to all else it was a dingle in the embossed mountain side. A path led to it, at first well trod, for it ran between farms ; then onward for miles it pursued its course, the forest thickening, the dull brown of the gum tree yielding to the deep glossy greens of the myrtle and hickory, as the mountain side was gained. Still the track of dray wheels led on - up the precipitous mountain side, under beetling rocks, across rills dashing impetuously between mossy stones and fern, bubbling, gurgling, splashing over a fallen stem of a tree, or silently creeping beneath over-hanging vegetat...
