"THE TAMING OF ANIMALS." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
"THE TAMING OF ANIMAL S." THE novelty and new method of taming and training the noble animal the horse, as introduced by Mr. Barey, has created a world-wide interest, and saved the most useful and beautiful of all animals from much unnecessary cruelty. During a life long observation of the treatment and training of horses and other dumb ani mals I had seldom indeed even met with more than one or two who knew the secret power of gentleness and kindness over almost every animal in existence. 'Tis true that there are human dispositions and tongues which no gentleness will charm or tame; but I fearlessly assert that I will tame any animal in existence to do as 1 wish them by means of the eolian electric wires of kindness. In support of this assertion and without * shade of vanity I may remark that I have trained wild ducks to follow mo and systematically to walk into the parlour every day after dinner, with a grace and winning sweetness peculiar to wild birds. I have also taught the wil...

The Australian Some Companion AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. OUR MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
C|)t ^nstralian Home dEompition, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. ? OUR MAIL SERVICE. BY a singular coincidence, the Steamship Oneida began and ended our late wretch* edly conducted mail contract. So grateful were we the whole affair had terminated that though painf'illy sensitive of the amount of colonial taxation worse than thrown away in that quagmire of avarice and inexperience, we wished the luckless boat in, commencing the last voyage of the series, had not had to face so stiff a breeze as welcomed hev outside the heads. Nor now the thing is done with, do we feel inclined to pen those strictures to which we have long been tempted to give expression. Amid the congratulations with which we welcome the P. and O. Company, we choose to forget the vexatious laches of the past working of a service so important to the Australian Colonies. Even to England we are feign to believe a regular and speedy postal communication is not altogether unimportant, but to the interests of these colonies it ...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. DBAB MB. EDITOR, Do pray read the enclosed letter. You sent it to me, saying you had no time to read it, but I beg you will. "I can scarcely swallow the Indignation which is rising in my heart at the unmerciful thrashing Lucy gave the gentlemen a few weeks since in your journal. The complaint that they are perfectly unmindful of their pleasure, is hidious. Miss Lucy thinks that to sit at home to receive visitors is a very "pretty idea," but she doss not add " a very expensive one." ah! I am afraid Lucy has not seen much of the world or she would not want to be reminded who it is that gets up early in the morning, swallows his coffee and trudges off to his office, employing every energy, straining every nerve, that he may obtain for "Lucy" those comforts, and the enjoyment of those " pretty ideas " which seem to be the ne plus ultra of her earthly bliss. And what do we ask our fair friends, in return for days of toil, and nights of ceaseless thought, one kind smile, on...

HOW MR. DOBSON LIVED AGAINST TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
HOW MR. DOBSON LIVED AGAINST TIME. "WHILE it was the good fortune of Dobson to inherit from his uncle an ample competency, it was his misfortune to inherit from his parents a shaky con stitution. I do not know that such a person could be called happy ; nor am I sure that he ought to be considered altogether unhappy. Dobson himself was wont to take a very philosophical view of the matter. At a very early period of his career, he adopted the motto-4 a ahort life and a merry one.' So, in every sense of the word, he lived fast; for while he was going to balls, theatres, and midnight harmonic meet ings, eating oyster suppers, and swamp his troubles with punch, he was also by that process gradually shortening his existence by days, weeks, months, and years. Dobson knew this well. He would toss off a sixth and seventh tumbler ef toddy amidst the smoke of the Harmonists of Covent Garden, and say, complaisantly, 4 there goes another nail to my coffin and then would add, as the comic man appe...
"PRESS ON!" A RIVULET'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
"PRESS ON!" A. RIVULET'S SONG. "Just under an island, 'midst rushes and moss, I was born of a rock-spring, and dew; I was shaded by trees, whose branches and leaves Ne'er suffered the sun to gaze through. "I wandered around the steep brow of a hill, Where the daisies and violets fair Were shaking the mist from their wakening eyes, And pouring their breath on the air. " Then I crept gently on, and I moistened the feet Of a shrub which enfolded a nest The bird in return sang his merriest song, And showed me his feathery crest. " How joyous I felt in the bright afternoon, When the sun, riding off in the west, Came out in red gold from behind the green trees And burnished my tremulous breast! " My memory now can return to the time When the breeze murmured low plaintive tones, While I wasted the day in dancing- away, Or playing with pebbles and stones. " It points to the hour when the rain pattered downs Oft resting a while in the trees; Then quickly descending it ruffled my calm, And wh...

A WIFE'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
WIFE'S SONG. « DON'T you remember, In a year long gone by, A night in December, When you, Dick and I, Sat down in the parlour, So warm and so bright, And all that you told me That wild stormy night! I was not romantic, But matter-of-fact; Tou were not pedantic. You speak as you act; In a straightforward manner You do things outright, And spoke to me thus On that wild stormy night. You told me you loved me; I said, " I love you," And I don't know what mov«d me^ But what did I do, But I lifted the curls Which lay there so bright, And kiss'd your broad forehead That wild stormy night. The days have gone quickly, And now we are old; Our years have pass'd by, Lite a tale that is told; But we've never repented, (Now am not I right?) Our talk in the parlour That wild stormy night. Ban
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. SHORT MEMOIR OF EDWIN F— LATELY A SABBATH SCHOOL TEACHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ? SHORT MEMOIR OF EDWIN LATELY A SABBATH SCHOOL TEACHER. "LORD, WHAT IS MAN." VAIN is the fleeting life of man, And transient as the snow, Or morning clouds before the sun, Or like the radient bow. Or like a tender flower that blooms To scent the early morn, Cut down before the evening comes, Its fragrant sweets are gone. A handbreadth are his days at most, Replete with grief and pain; Of one day hence he cannot boast, All earthly hopes are Tain. * « . * ' I feel in such unusually good health to night, I think I never felt better in my life/ said Edwin F as he walked homeward with his beloved pastor on Wednesday evening (the 19th January) after attending the usual service in the Pitt-street Congregational Church. * I so much enjoyed the services this evening and last Sunday' he continued, and I look forward with such pleasurable anticipa tion to the next Sabbath to hear your discourse upon the Youth of Jesus. What a delightful theme you have chosen, sir, the yo...
THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER XIII. THE CLERKENWELL LODGING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 February 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEN. (Continued from page 43.) CHAPTER XIII. THE CLERK.ENWELL LODGING. FOLLOWING in the wake of the old Bal lad seller-Joe and Nelly Appleshaw took their way towards Clerkenwell. When partly thither, for the districts lie in near neighbourhood, they met Bernardo the Italian. He carried something on his arm carefully done up in green baize, and guessing from Nelly and her husband's manner-as well as from their children being with them-and they had left Nix's lodgings-he stayed to make a gesticu lation expressive of good speed and kindly farewell, and to caress his little favorite Ruth. As he did so-lifting the child up in his vacant arm-and pouring out a flood of endearing words in his own beau tiful language-the old man gave him to understand-how great the honest crea tures troubles were, in their penilbss con dition and with a sick child-and how cruelly the Nixes had behaved. No sooner did the quick witted Italian understand this-than he made signs that the...
Our Advertising Sheet. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
Our Advertising Sheet. í WE would make the remark to our Subscribers, that the paper on which the advertisements are printed is so much addition to the book and not an enroachment upon the publication itself. We know with how much avidity the HOME COMPANION is everywhere read, that we are not surprised that our readers should wish it to contain very much more reading than it does: we could not at present give another page without endangering its exist ance. The instant our circulation warrants our doing so, nothing will give us greater pleasure, than to enlarge our sheet. If our subscribers would assist us to attain this object it might soon be accomplished. At the commencement of the present year, we enclosed a small circular in their copies, asking each of our friends to obtain for us ONE new subscriber, and out of the fifteen hundred issued, only six papers have been returned, this we must confess has rather disheartened us, with the repeated profes ions of interest that we hear ...
CHILDREN'S POETFOLIO. BEGIN RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
CHILDREN'S POETFOLIO. -» BEGIN EIGHT. A LITTLE girl once said, ' Oh, mother, how very hard it is to do right. I don't believe I shall ever be able.' ' Have you really tried, my dear ?' 'Oh, yes; I try every day. When I awake, before I get up, I say to myself, 41 will be good all the day. I will be gentle and kind. 1 will obey my parents and teachers. I will not quarrel. I will always tell mother, I don't know how it is, I so often forget. Then when evening comes, I have to say, ' There now ! what is the use of trying ? I have been in a passion, I have been disobedient ; and once or twice, mother, you know I have said what was not true !' The dear caild looked very much asha- med, while saying this ; so her mother looked kindly at her, and said, ' My dear, I do not think you have begun right,' The little girl looked up wonderingly; and her mother went on : ' the first thing is to have a new heart ; have you asked for this ?' ' No, mother, I am afraid not.' ' Then, my child, do so at ...

LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. -4 DEAS MB. EDITOB, I have not much novelty in the fashions by the Emeu. There is a very pretty shawl for young ladies, made of plaids or Algerine patterns, simply trimmed with fringe, they are made with a seam down the back, which causes the pattern to join in points. You can recommend your lady friends to alter their old striped and plaid shawls into the new mode. In dresses I find nothing very new. Bodies are fastened in front with a band or buckle, or, which is very becoming for the figure, with a sash fastened in front. Most fashionable colours either for ribbons or dresses, are green, groseille, marigold, violet, drab, dark blue, and with black silk dresses, long wide black silk sashes, edged all round with lace, are worn with good effect. Plaid sashes, made in the same manner, are also worn with black or dark dresses. The skirts of plain thick dresses are frequently made plain ; and although quilles have been for some months discarded, we see many dresses trimm...
