DOMESTIC LIFE IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

DOMESTIC LIFE IN AUSTRALIA, BT CAROLINE CHISHOLM. -* . DALLY soon found a violin, and in a few minutes the happy party were all on the move, and as couple after couple whirled about, the elders of the party seated themselves on fallen trees, where they could have a better view of the dancers, and witness the mirth of the young people. Dally was in earnest conversation with Mrs. Grant, and it was evident that he had gained her consent to his proposal, that as the evening was far advanced, the dance should be ad journed to the wool-shed, which was near Mr. Grant's residence; so Mrs. Grant took the arm of young Dally, and . walked up to a group, of which Mr. ?Grant formed one, to support him in his application for the use of the spacious wool-shed. The request was readily granted, and Dally then undertook to have all ready soon after sundown. The merry group of young people that sur- rounded Mr. Grant did not conceal from an observing mother that her husband's thoughts were with Lucy, ...

NEEDLEWORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

NEED LEWORK. -« LOUNGING CAP IN BRIOCHE KNITTING. As these caps from their Oriental in- troduction, have usually obtained the title of smoking caps, some conscien- tiously object to purchase or make them, fearing it might look like an encourage- ment to smoking. But when the change- able nature of the atmosphere here is ; considered, and the necessity of protec- tion to the head, both from sun and air, it will be at once seen that no present can be more useful or unobjectionable for a gentleman who has either garden or verandah to study or recreate in. The present pattern is simple and inexpen- sive, but. if approved by our subscribers, shall he followed by mere elaborate and elegant specimens. Materials required :-12 skeins each of yellow, white, and black Berlin wool; 24 skeins ditto of claret, dark green, or blue, whichever color is preferred, and a pair of wood or bone knitting needles, No. 12.

HINTS FOR HOMES. BREAD WITHOUT YEAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

-? HINTS FOR HOMES. i BREAD WITHOUT YEAST. j 1 AM sure every lady reader of the * Home Companion' will thank me when 4 they have tried the following recipe for making bread, and will admit that it is the finest bread that they have ever seen. First procure the following ingredients : half a pound of cream of tartar, six ounces of carbonate of soda, two ounces of tartaric acid ; have them well crushed and mixed together, and sifted through a fine sieve : keep in a stoppered bottle, if possible. The above is sufficient for making up fifty-six pounds of flour, and costs two shillings, Put as many pints of flour as you wish into a large bowl or bason, add to it the same number of heaped teaspoonsfull of the mixture. Mix well with the flour, pour in sufficient cold water, stirring it the while, to make it into a thin dough, pour into tins or dishes, and bake at once. If baked with- out a dish, which is quite as good, it will require to be made a little stiffer. It makes most excellent ca...

SMALL APOLOGIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

SMALL APOLOGIES. j The subject of M. Thiers's parentage j iras once discussed in his presence, and the question was mooted as to whether his mother was not a cuisinière ? ' She was,* he said; appologistically adding, with the view of showing she deserved a higher destiny-* but I assure you she was a very bad one.' Mrs. Siddons's marriage joke was an improvement on this. Her father had always forbidden her to marry an actor, and of course she chose a member of the old gentleman's company, whom she secretly wedded. When Roger Kembla heard of it he was furious. 4 Have I not,' he exclaimed, * dared you to marry a player?' The lady replied, with down cast eyes, that she had not disobeyed. * What ! madam, have you not allied yourself to about the worst performer in my company ?' * Exactly so,' murmured the timid bride -' nobody can call him an actor.' A third instance in this style was current last season, and attributed to a young beauty, whose name, with an added title, has since passed...

A li+flo Innmnf n*.A ~«-1_._ ex unie lung ci yci-¡mu ange* voices Shall ring in heavenly chant upon thine ear, Angels and Saints await thee, and Godneeds thee, Beloved, can we bid thee linger here ! ANNE PROCTOR. Another twelve months had swept on, and at its end the day set leaving sorrow in the household of Willian Enly. In one little room they were all gathered. The Venetian windows were open; outside the birds twittered, the flowers bloomed in fair loveliness, the sun shone with softened parting rays, all nature was ) beautiful, passing beauty. Within was a lovelier sight, the joyous departure of a Christian to his God. The aged father, the mother stricken in years ? No, but the young man, the affectionate son, the ¡ loving brother, the tender husband and | father, he it was who was called. f Calmly he lay, no woe upon his face, no . regret, nought but a tinge of pity for j ¡ those around, not that he left them be- hind, but that he could not take them with him. * M...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. SOOTY TAPOA. Phalangista Fuliginosa. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. -? SOOTY TAPO A. . Phalangista Fuliginosa. In a former number we gave a speci- men of the animals termed Phalangers, the above is another example of the same family. The shape and propor , tions of the Sooty Tapoa are similar to those of the Vulpine Phalanger, des- cribed at page 343, vol iv. The ears are also of a similar shape in each, hairy on the outside, but naked within. The colour is a uniform sooty-brown over all parts of the body and head, not even excepting the belly. The hair has a frizzled appearance, but it is mt so close, nor so fine in the Vulpine. The tail is long, black, and father bushy; the naked slip underneath, (as well as the nose and soles of the feet which are also naked), is of a bright green colour, the mustache is large, stiff and black. These animals are of arboreal habits, residing almost con- stantly among the branches. Their food consists of fruits, buds, leaves, &c, but insects, eggs, &c, are also eaten. Nig...

MES. SIGOTJKNEY. WHO does not know the still solem- nity of the house of death ? Who is not acquainted with the low, unsteady voices, tho shadowy features, the muffled tread, which are the signs of the fearful visitor's presence ? Yet why ?-why pay this mournful homage to Death, or to the dead ? Death,-is he the messenger of * love, joy, peace ?' Ah, pause not to worship the servant when the master is at hand. Is he the messenger of sorrow «nd woe ? Who pays respect to an un- welcome guest ? Let him go, hide your faces, turn away your thoughts, forget him, if you can ; it were best so to do.

ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

-» ART AND SCIENCE. NEW COTTON FIELDS.-The adaptability of Australia and South Africa to the growth of cotton of the most useful as well as the finest qualities is placed be- yond doubt by the samples now at Man- chester of cotton recently grown in those colonies. Private merchants and cul- tivators in both countries are turning their attention to cotton culture ; and 500 labourers have been engaged to com- mence cultivation at Bockamton, in Australia. WOOD GAS. - Wilmington, in North Carolina, is now lighted with wood gas, which, it is stated, can be obtained more j cheaply than coal gas. A ton of coals yields about ten thousand cubic feet of gas, while one cord of wood produces ninety-eight thousand feet-in the pro- duction of light being as seven to three in favour of ligneous oils over coal. MR. TITE has estimated that a work like the Great Pyramid could not now be constructed, with all the aids of modern science, for less than £30,000,000. THE results of experiments with Arm- j...

CONSISTENCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

CONSISTENCY. ' YES, and you cannot imagine how pained, how grieved I was when I heard it,' said Mrs. Kestl\, as- seated at dessert in the parlor of her magnificent mansion, she looked round with an eye of motherly pride upon the beautiful faces of the children around her. 4 Patty,' continued the lady, addressing the guests who enlivened with their presence the festive board, in honor of the anniversary of the natal day of the eldest daughter of the family-4 Patty was the daughter of poor though honest parents, and I am confi- dent, from having known little Patty from a child, that she was far from having a propensity to theft. That she was fond of looking vf ell, as far as dress is con- cerned, is true-that was but natural ; but then her dress was formed of the most simple materials, and her dark hair arranged without any other ornament than its own glossy brightness, that it was impossible, while looking upon that fair young face, even to imagine a word of censure, to overshadow th...

DON'T KEEP THE BOW ALWAYS BENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

DON'T KEEP THE BOW ALWAYS BENT. I HAVB been employed these rast threfé hours with John Elliott and other boys in trying how long we could keep up two cricket balls. Lord Minto caught us. He says he must send me on a mission to some very young monarch, for that I shall never have the gravity of an am- bassador for a prince turned of twelve. He, however, added the well-known and admirable story of Henry IV. of France, who, when caught on all-fours, ca/rying one of his children, by the Spanish envoy, looked up and said, ' Is your Excellency married ?'-* I am, and have a family/ was the reply.'-4 Well, then, said the monarch, ' I am satisfied, and shall take another turn round the room and off he galloped, with his little son, flogging and spurring him on the back.

Cju Rastrallan J»MÍ Companran, AND FAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. -* OUR SOCIAL CONDITION CONSIDERED. To aid the great cause of Truth in all its struggles should be the constant object of man. The power which any writer-the worthiest writer-cart possess now-a-days may be small among a nation, but in a more circumscribed community he cannot fail to have effect for good or for evil. Although one writer, or one man, may do little by himself, yet if each will consider his obligations to his fellow-man, writers in the aggregate can and do exercise influence. Each taking upon himself his proper responsibility, the search of truth and the condemnation of error, may stimulate virtue and suppress vice. Just as a fire may cast á heat sufficient to warm and gladden the hearth of a family, or as a light may beam with sufficient brightness to guide a body through the labyrinths of darkness-so may writers individually and collectively apply home truths to warm the human heart with gladness, each in their ...

VULGAR ERRORS RESPECTING THE BAROMETER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 28 January 1860

VULGAR ERRORS RESPECTING THE BAROMETER. -? TÊE barometer has been called a wea- ther-glass. Rules are attempted to be established by which, from the height of the mercury, the coming state of the weather may be predicted ; and we ac- cordingly find the words 'rain,' 'change- able,' 'fair,' 'frost,' &c, engraved on the scale attached to common domestic barometers, as if, when the mercury stands at the height marked by these words, the weather is always subject to the vicissitudes expressed by them. These marks are, however, entitled to no attention; and it is only surprising to find their use continued in the present times, when knowledge is so widely dif- fused, They are in fact to be ranked with the Vox Stellerium, or astrological almanac. Two barometers, one near the level of the river Thames, and the other on the heights of Hampstead, will differ by half an inoh, the latter being always half an inch lower than the former. If the words, therefore, engraved upon the plates ...

PICKINGS ABOUT AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860

PICKINGS ABOUT AUSTRALIA.* -* WE do not know whether the number of books already published about Austra- lia has exhausted the theme or not, but certainly, the book before us does not add much to our stock of information about the colony, nor does it propound any new ideas whatever with respect to it. Under the name of " William Bur- rows,' the author professes to descrbe the adventures of a mounted trooper. Somehow, writers on Australia seem to fix their attention exclusively on the scamps and vagabonds. We seldom meet with any descriptions of the plea- sant scenes which do exist, or tho "decent" people who are to be found. The scenery of the land, especially, seldom meets with an able limner. The work before ns describes those scanes and iacidents often met with in the bush and at the diggings ; it also describes the climate, birds, animals, vegetable productions, aborigines, &c, &c, of the colonies. The following extracts will give some idea of the nature of its c...

THE BAY OF VULCANO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860

THE BAY OF VULCAN O. During the Greek war of independence it was a frequent custom to send the vessels whose sheathing had become in crusted with pebbles, shells, and earthy ¡ matter to tho Bay of Vulcano, in the is- land of Santorin, twenty-six leagues north of Candia. After a stay of only a few hours in that bay, the incrustation could be swept away from the copper sheathing with a common broom. This property of the waters of Vulcano was known throughout the East, but had been quite neglected during the last few years. In 1856 the Greek Government resolved to put it to the test, and applied to Rear Admiral Bouet Villaumez to send a vessel there by way of experiment. Accordingly, the Solon, an iron-built ship, protected by a strong coating of red-lead paint, and having her keel encumbered with a quantity of sea-weeds and shells, which adhered firmly to the surface, received orders to repair to the Bay of Vulcano, and to stay there three or four hours. This short stay appeared to ha...

REVIVAL IN IRELAND, SHEWING the decrease of intemperance in Ireland, in connection with the revivals.-One states that, in one town, a a public house, which frequently took £190 on a Saturday evening, found a few weeks after the revival had commenced, that its takings had dwindled to i>Os. Another states that in one place twenty five publicans have renounced the traffic. -Another writes : * In the district of excise, of which Coleraine is the centre, comprehending a radius of perhaps ten or twelve miles, by no means densely popu- lated, the falling off in the duty paid on spirits, for the month, was no less than £400 sterling. Markets, which a few weeks ago, were scenes of revelling, are now quiet and orderly. The publican's occupation is gone, and not a few public houses are actually shut. The 12th of July, a day of celebration on which party spirit was wont to run high, and on which not seldom blood was shed, was consecrated by prayer-meetinçs, and spent with decorum and solemni...
