Poetry. DRINK VERSUS MIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 22 November 1856
DRINK VERSUS MIND. BY THOMAS RAGES. (SONNET on hearing the statement made by the Rev. William Wight, at the "Model Parish" Meeting, in the Town Hall, Birming ham, that while £65,000,000 per annum was paid in Great Britain for intoxicating drink, the whole literature of the country cost little more than £2,000,000.; Oh, England ! oh, my country ! can it be That thou art thus degraded ? Doth the thirst Of maddening drinks, as Cize's draughts accursed, So overpower thee with its witchery, That of the idolized and cherished gold Thou sacraficest more, yea, thirty-fold On maddening potions than thy hand can give F jr all the stores whereon the mind doth live ? Up, then, ye Ministers of Christ! Arise, Teachers and Poet s ! menofhigh emprise; With those who're pledged such customs to expel [hell ; As cloud the brain and drag the soul to Join in the conflict, letnotthe hand of God Write on thy chalky cliffs a withering "Ichabod !"

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. H. M.-We would acknowledge the compliments H. M. pays to our little journal, and thank him for the list ot subscribers sent. Those who wish it, can have the back numbers from the commencement. ELIZABETH.-Not one twentieth part of the children in Sydney are members of ihe Bauds of Hope at present. No doubt, if systematic measures are adopted, a great part of them may be induced to join. In numbers of instances the parents, though not abstainers themselves, have been very desirous of having their children enrolled as members. No argument that is worth the name can be advanced as a reason why they should not. Let Elizabeth, and the numerous friends of the cause, but keep the thought prominently in their minds, wheniu the circle of their acquaintances, and they will do much to bring about the desired result. T. HUTTON.-We have not sufficient confidence in our friends to enlarge the publication. We teel it would add to its interest, but at the same time also, t...
Annie Leslie. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 22 November 1856
TIME glides quickly past, and ere we are aware of it, years roll on. I must now pass over a period of eighteen years. Many changes had taken place in Crompton during that time ; the little children had grown up men. and women, other little children plucked the buttercups and daisies on the pretty village green ; other little children went merrily primrosing on (Concluded from page 352.) Saturday afternoons, and other little children attended the Sabbath and weekly schools. The silvery heads had been laid beneath the church-yard sod, and the green grass grew over many a form which moved about in health and vigour when Annie Leslie was a child. " Gone were the heads of the hoary hair, And the young, that were, had a brow of care." The good vicar had gone to his rest and his reward, and another had filled his place. One bright Sabbath afternoon a strange lady appeared in the Sunday School ; some of the teachers knew her, but none of the children. She looked around her with deep interes...

BY MRS. S. C. HALL. jwjLETHA gave mm another shilling; and after he was fairly out of the room, grappled the book, commenced looking at the pictures in right earnest, and congratulated herself on her good bar gain. In due time, the house was cleared, and she went to bed, placing the Bible on the top of the table, amongst a miscellaneous collection of worn-out dusters and tattered glass cloths, " waiting to be mended." That night the master of " The Grapes" could not sleep ; more than once he fancied he smelt fire ; and after going into the unoccupied rooms, and peeping (Concluded from page 356.J ?rn «? . _ _ . . - - _ through the key-holes and under the doors of those that were occupied, he descended to the bar, and finally enter ing the little bar-parlour, took his day book from a shelf, and placing the candle, sat down, listlessly turning over its leaves, but the top of the table would not shut, and raising it to remove the obstruction, Matthew saw a large family BIBLE ; pushing a...

I have met with a provo cation too great for a man to bear. You know the only wine I drink is Cyprus wine, as it agrees with me better than any other.

The Children's Model. THE GOOD ANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 6 December 1856
%\t Cjjilkm's MM. THE GOOD ANGELS. " (JOME, Adyand Henry, it's time you were in bed," said Mrs. Freeman to her two little darlings, about nine o'clock one evening. Ady was nine years old, and Henry was a year and a half younger. The two children had been sitting at the work-table with their mother, one studying his lesson, and the other engaged on a piece of fancy needle-work. " Papa hasn t come home yet," answered Ady. " No, dear, but it's getting late, and it is time you were in bed. He may not be home for an hour." Ady laid aside her work, and left the table, and Henry closed his books, and put them away in his school satchel. " You can light the lamp on the mantel-piece," said Mrs. Freeman, after a few moments, and looking around as she spoke, she saw the chil dren had both put on their bonnet and hat, and were tying their warm capes close about their necks. She under stood well the meaning of this, and therefore did not ask a question, al though the tears came to her eyes, and ...
WHY ARE THE MIGHTY FALLEN? (From Mr. Buckingham's" History and Progress of the Temperance Reformation") [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 6 December 1856
WHY ARE THE MIGHTY FALLEN? LEST it should be supposed that intem perate habits are confined exclusively to the labouring classes, and the crimi nal population, the interests of truth demand that it should be added that amongst the most highly educated, and in other respects, the least criminal portion of the community, those habits are not so rare as we could desire them to be. Though there has, no doubt, been a considerable change for the better in the habits of the English ' gentry, as to the intemperate use of wine and stimulating drinks, and though education is much relied on as a pre ventive against the evil practice, it is, unfortunately, far from being oblite rated. In the course of a single week in the month of March last, there ap peared in the public journals,-1. The case of a young nobleman, allied to one of the highest families in the land, dying suddenly on board one of the ships of war forming the Baltic fleet, ot' which he was an officer, from the effects of extreme i...
