A successful Merchant of the Olden Time [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 6 December 1856
% satttssfcl lltmjrant of % ©kit $ime. THE working men of England, ever since the introduction of Christianity, have been for the most part a strong handed, stout hearted, and clear headed people:-brave, kind and free. Their great fault for many ages has been, and still is, the love of strong drink. This, and this only, has kept them from being the most virtuous, happy, and prosperous people on the face of the earth. Whenever a man has had health, strength, talent, and industry, and has kept clear of the love of strong diink, he has had, and still has, in his dear old England, a fair chance of great prosperity. His being born a poor man need not keep him down. The poorest have often risen-some by wisdom to be mighty, and many by diligence to be rich. Examples of this latter kind are common in our time; let us not suppose they belong to our time. There are some working men of the past ages, who lived noble lives, died Christian deaths, aud left wealth to the world that has benefitted...

PITT STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 6 December 1856
PITT STREET. The anniversary meeting of this society took place on the 26th lilt. 400 persons and upwards sat down to tea, of which, with its usual accompa niments, there was an abundant supply. The body of the hall was comfortably filled; the galleries would have accomr modated above 100 more. Nature and Art had evidently vied with each other in making flowers for ornamenting the room, which was tastefully decorated with wild flowers, wreaths, flags, &c. A bottle brush tree, above fifteen feet in height, covered with flowers, formed an ornament for the platform, half covered in which sat the Chairman, G. Allen, Esq., M. L. C. The Chairman, in introducing the subject of the evening said, he felt great pleasure in meeting so large and respectable an audience for commemo rating the anniversary of the Pitt street Band of Hope ; that he had not seen so large a meeting connected with the subject of temperance, since the time when the Sydney Temperance Society met at the Victoria ...
PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 6 December 1856
PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. EOPLE will have amusement. JjjJ Perfectly true; and from the character of national amuse ments we may forni a pretty accurate estimate of a people's moral elevation or debasement. Considering popular amusements with reference to the land we live in, and from our point of view, we cannot fail to remark how large an amount of in temperance is combined with nearly every recreation indulged in by the colonial " Million." Picnics, regattas, rural sports, railway trips, musical en tertainments,-all innocent, healthful, and consistent with the strictest morality in themselves; but all turned into a bane, a deadly curse-by the drinking customs with which they are so closely connected. To consider the amount of innocent cheerfulness marred, of money recklessly spent, and of health destroy ed-because the "bottle" is thought absolutely requisite as an accompani ment to rational pleasure-is, indeed, a melancholy reflection. Thus the agency of the potent bottle changes pleasur...

SURRY HILLS. r riaay evening, the xZth. instant. Mr. Crouch exhibited his beautiful Dissolving Views, descriptive of seve ral of the principal cities and towns of England and the continent of Europe, flowers, &c,, &lt;fcc, to a large audience, who seemed to be greatly delighted with the evening's entertain ment.

POOR, YET RICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
POOR, YET RICH. A gentleman was walking across a meadow a few years ago, when lie overtook a beggar bending under the weight of three-score years and ten, carrying a bundle of sticks on his back. " Well, my friend," said the gentle man, " where do you think you will be in twenty years." " In heaven, I hope, sir," cheerfully replied the old man. On further con versation the gentleman found that this beggar was rich in faith, and rejoiced, even in poverty, having a believing trust in Christ. I Surprised at the clear scriptural views of salvation expressed by the j poor man, the gentleman inquired where he had got all his knowledge. "I will tell you," said he. "About ! nine or ten years ago, I was begging at one of the houses in the Boyal Crescent at Brighton. After waiting for some time, as no one gave me any thing, I turned and walked away ; a servant then came after me, and said that a lady had sent me a penny and a little tract, which she desired I would read. It was that little bo...
The Children's Model. EMMELINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
EMMELINE. BY KATE PYER. " So you have a sad headache this morning, my sweet child. I am truly sorry, though I cannot wonder at it." These words were addressed to a light hearted little girl, who had been to a juvenile party the evening before, and according to a foolish custom, but too common on such occasions, wine had been given them to drink. A rest less night had followed, and little Emmeline rose from her pillow with heavy eyes, and a throbbing brow. She had learnt a lesson, however, she did not easily forget. A short time after, she was again in vited to the same house, but now our little heroine came away without tasting what had previously given her so much uneasiness. We hope she will keep her resolution through life, for then she will never learn to like that which makes so many people unhappy, and so many homes wretched. And we wish every girl and boy who may read this paper, to begin at once the noble plan of keeping from all kinds of drinks that intoxicate. And I will t...
SUPPLICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
SUPPLICATION. ] FATHER ! at thy footstool kneeling. Humbly we implore thy aid, 'Gainst the dark and wide spread evils That intemperance hath made. « Home* are blighted, hearts are broken, Souls are ruined through its snare. Hear us! help us! Gracious Father, Listen to our earnest prayer ! By the misery and anguish That Intemperence hath brought, By the fearful degradation That its fatal spell hath wrought, By its merciless dominion Over body, mind, and soul We are warned to shun the danger, And renounce the deadly bowl. And we ask for strength to combat Till the Demon's power is riven, At whose shrine the drunkard offers Earthly joys, and hopes of heaven. "Well we know the work is arduous, There is much to do and dare, But our trust is in thee, Father ! Thou wilt listen to our prayer !

BREVITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
BREVITY. Dr. Abernethy, the celebrated phy sician, was never more displeased than by having a patient detail a long account of troubles. A woman knowing Abernethy's love of the laconic, having burnt her hand, called at his house, showing him her hand, she said ; " A burn." " A poultice," quietly answered the learned doctor. The next day she returned and said ; " Better." "Continue the poultice," replied Dr. A. In a week she made her last call, and her speech was lengthened to three words : " Well,-your fee ?" " Nothing," said the gratified phy sician ; "you are the most sensible woman I ever saw"
A PERSIAN FABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
A PERSIAN FABLE. ¿ A climbing gourd wound itself round a lofty palm-tree, and in a few weeks climbed to its very top. " How old mayst thou be ? " asked the new comer. " About a hundred years," answered the palm-tree. " A hundred years, and no taller ! only look ; I have grown as tall as you in fewer days than you can count years." " I know that well," replied the palm. " Every summer of my life, a gourd has climbed up round me, as proud as thou art, and as short-lived as thou wilt be."
