'IS FATHER HERE?' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
. I S FATHER HER E?' 4 COMB, Jake, do let me have just one more drink ; one more, and I'll go home ; I suppose I am wanted there f Thus, in a thick and husky voice, pleaded a grayhaired man, at the bar of one of our hotels-one very popular among visiting merchants and transient sojourners, as it is kept, and well kept, on the European plan. The old man, amid the blotched and wrinkled furrows on his face, in his erect carriage, and in his language, showed evident signs of having once been a gentleman-a man of position , : and intelligence. His thread-bare gar ments, not ragged, but in places darned and patched, showed lingering tokens of decency, and told too of some tender hand that even in poverty cared for his personal appearance. The barkeeper, who seemed to be too much of a man for the situation which he occupied, said, in a kind tone : 4 You had better not take any more, Judge ; you will feel better Without it.' 'Only just ONE drink!' said the old man; 'ONE more, to steady my n...
SUBMARINE SQUATTING IN THE NEW COLONY OF QUEENSLAND: A NEW SOURCE OF HEALTH AND WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
SUBMARINE SQUATTING IN THE NEW COLONY OF QUEENSLAND : A NEW SOURCE OF HEALTH AND WEALTH. -1 WHO ever heard of a Submarine I Squatting before? The sturdy back woods man, who, with his axe, travels into the far west of the States, and squats upon his eighty-acre farm, and the adventurous squatter who aroes INTO p THE NEW COUNTRY, as it is called in these colonies, and takes up a tract of country as large as an English county, or a German principality are both representa tives of a class of men now pretty gene rally understood ; but the squatter with a submarine run is almost as incompre hensible a personage as a horse marine. However mysterious it may appeai\ the new colony of. Queensland bids fair to foster this new order of squatters, in no inconsiderable numbers, whose produce will doubtless, in a few years, form no insignificant addition to its exports. To the discovery of the valuable medicinal properties of the oil of the Dugong, and the recent exertions made for its develop men...

SEARCHINGS OF HEAET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
SEARCHINGS OF HEAET. EXTRACT of address delivered to the members at the Congregational Union Meeting, by the Rev. S. Martin : And let us ever remember that there is a close connexion between our own well-being and that of our congregations. But let our churches know that the minister's influence upon his people is not more real than that of the people upon the minister. Many a feeble pastor has been rríade strong and great by the patience, and gentleness, and loving kindness of his church ; and not a few have been undone by treatment of an opposite kind. Some pastors have been led into much temptation by some of their own flock, and others have been held up in God's paths by the influence of wise and consistent members of their congregations. There would be no difference of opinion amongst ourselves as to what constitutes c p~ prosperity in our churches. We should all say that a church is prosperous when it consists mainly of true Christians when the several members of the church gr...

COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
COLONIAL NEWS. A DESTRUCTIVE fire at Parramatta oc- curred on the 8th inst. ; three houses were consumed— a tavern, a baker's shop, and a corn-dealer's : the loss is estimated at £3000.— The 'Bendigo Mercury' states that they ' have shown a very fine sam- pie of iron, the result of the first smelting of the iron ore lately found near Sand hurst. It has the appearance of being of a very superior quality, resembling very m icu Tennessee (U. S.) iron, and appa rently quite as ductile as Swedish.— 'The End of a Drunkard' : A man, named Daniel Walsh, better known by the sou- briquet of 'Larry O'Brien,' was on Mon- &nbsp; day found dead in the bush. He had two gin-bottles near him, one empty and the other containing spirits. The deceased was well known to many inhabitants of Ballaarat as an eccentric though very intemperate vendor of newspapers. — The usual weelky meeting of the Inter colonial Cricket Match Committee" was held on the 29th ultimo, at the Argus Hotel, Melbourne, Mr....
A TRUE LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 January 1860
A TRUE LOVE. Oh ! say not that you love me Because my face is fair ; Nor fondly praise my dark eyes, And ebon, flowing hair : For, ere a long to-morrow, My eyes will dim with care, And toil and years and sorrow Will little beauty spare. And you will gaze lamenting, And silently be sighing For graces you had worshipped E'en 'neath your praises dying : And then will come regretting The beauty you had known — Soon, soon you'll be forgetting The love you once have shown. But kiss me on my brow, dear, And bless me with your smile, And tell me I may know, dear, Though age my beauties, pale. Yet I shall ever be, dear, The darling of your life, Your sorrow's closest friend, dear, &nbsp; Your loved, your own, your wife. PATTY PARSLEY.
THE RALLYING-POINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860
THE RALL YÏNG-POINT. -4 WE have been considering the present aspect of the Temperance movement in the Colony, and can but express feelings of regret at its somewhat depressed condition. The giant evil which has from time to time called forth the denunciations of the advocates of Total Abstinence, has by no means abated its force, and we can see no reason for the apathy which has crept through the camp of the Cold Water Army. Is it that the leaders have proved unfaithful? Is it that the ' pledged' have lost faith in the efficacy of their principles ? or is it that the late divisions in the camp have stayed the progress of the siege, and the slaughter of the enemy ? We particularly regret the decline in the Band of Hope movement. These j Juvenile Institutions, if fully worked in the direction which their original promoters intended, are capable of producing the most beneficial effects upon tho community at large, by their moral and intellectual influence. A glance at what was done in ...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS (LESAR. CÄSAR lost no time in hastening with hi3 army to fight against Pompey, and he marched so rapidly that many of his j soldiers could not keep up with him. As it was not safe to divide the army, he suddenly resolved to return alone, and bring forward those who were following behind ; he therefore hastened back, and having to go a part of the way by sea, he boldly ventured in a small boat, with- out any attendants except the sailors, though there were many of the enemy's vessels in sight, who might, perhaps, have discovered him. Trusting to what he considered his usual good fortune, Caesar disguised himself as a slave, that even the sailors might not recognise his figure ; and sitting down in the boat, as if he had been a person of no particular consequence, he remained there perfectly silent for a long time. At length a violent storm arose, and the waves were so rough, that it seemed every moment that the boat would upset ; upon this, t...

--T CHARADES, &c. .- \ I. In joy or in Borrow my first may be found, And my second you see where mountains abound,. My whole is a fruit, delicious and sweei, Fragrant and juicy, and wholesome to eat. E. B. II. A raiser counting o'er his gains, For my first he wishes sincerely; Poor grasping fool, death soon will part, Him from that he loves so dearly. A ship was riding in my third, And for a voyage was preparing, With anchor weighed, and sails unfurl^ Away for sea she's proudly hearing. Bound for my whole, she scuds along, Her freightage hundreds of my second, Whice for a bark, her size and build, A hearv coreo still is reckoned. E.

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860
THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from page 14.) A THIS demand had taken place on the same evening as Mr. Verdun's call, and Norman had spent his time in hunting for the rent book till William's return. Then without referring to this subject, he sat down to talk with his boy, till interrupted as we have seen. William received his father's reproof as doggedly, as he had already done on more than one previous occasion. He replied but little, and utterly denied a more than passing acquaintance with the girl Pirouette. '. As you sit and tell me so deliberate a lie, William,' said the angry father, ' I can hope for nothing truthful from you. One thing, however, perhaps you will confess, that is the names of these two men in whose company you are con- stantly seen. So constantly, as to be notorious to the police.' * They're very nice people.' replied the lad sullenly, ' a good deal better than I am, that's all I know.' Then when he had been asked again a time or two, he admitted that the name of...

CORRESPONDENCE. ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. 67. A SUBSCRIBER wishes to ascertain the most economical method of erecting the walls of a neat, and at the same time substantial cottage. Dig a I. series of holes about two feet deep ; cut some sap- lings, not les* than six inches thick, prepare them for the wall plate at the top, place them in the holes about two feet apart and ram them well ; then cut a great many very small saplings not thicker than inches, twist them in and out of your uprights already described, in imitation of a wickerwork basket ; then temper clay with short straw or grass, or hair off bullock's hides, plenty of either will do ; commence then to daub the walls with the tempered clay, not putting too much on at a time, so as to allow it to dry as you proceed. When you have completed the daubing, get some lime, pipeclay, or chalk, and whiten over ; such a house will be cheat), and. when drv. substantial. and is called wattle and daub. J.

WHOSE NAMES ARE IN THE BOOK OF LIFE.— PHILIPPIANS iv. 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860
WH03E NAMES ARE IN THE BOOK OP LIF E. PHILIPPIANS iv. 3. ? » There is a Book in Heaven ! an ample scroll, On which the eye of the Eternal rests With joy ineffable. In characters As beautiful as light, as permanent As those enduring pillars that sustain The dwelling-place of God-the Book is writ. No record it contains of enterprise, Discovery, or Achievement ; Science there Has spread no treasure ; never on that page Has genius written her seraphic song, Yielding the tribute of her praise to Him Who gave, from His own altar, all her fire. The annals of Eternity ! the facts Of universal being ; all that pass'd ' Within the Eternal bosom, when in long Mysterious solitude, God lived alone Himself the Universe ; the ecstacy Of all the elder-born, and thrill Of rapturous exultation they sustained When conscious of existence ; the delight Mingled with awe, with which they first beheld The birth of worlds, and all the beautiful Arrangement of Creation ; the dread shriek Sent from a falling ...

CHAPTER XXX. A CONFESSION OF SIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860
CHAPTER XXX. A CONFESSION OP SIN. THOUGH it was sought to make Nor- man's son the instrument of a deep laid scheme of fraud, as well as actual robbery, the plot itself, had been longer in contemplation, than the lad's residence in London. It had been taken up, as any speculation with gain for its end, might be, and followed with unruffled perseverance for a considerable period. Clerks and porters bad been tampered with, directly as well as indirectly; their seduction had been sought by the strangest means ; women, men disguised as city missionaries, betting officials, and others, had taken the matter in hand; each in turn to be baffled by the incor- ruptible integrity of those employed by Mr. Wroxeter, as well as by the ceaseless vigilance of Mr. Harlow. But the scheme had been concerted by those, not easily deterred by procrastination or defeat. They had soon observed the advent of a raw country lad in the jgreati offices in Mincing Lane, and were! soon eqally cognisant that he was...
