Selections. THE PINT O' ALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
Stltttiüits. THE PINT O' ALE. I k Tl*- i - !._ A _-I A Manchester calico-printer was, on his wedding day persuaded by his wife to allow her two half pints of ale a day as her share. He rather winced under the bargain ; for though a drinker himself, he would have pre ferred a perfectly sober wife. They both worked hard ; and he, poor man, was seldom out of the public-house while the factory was closed. The wife and husband saw little of each other except at breakfast ; but, as she kept things tidy about her, and made her stinted, and even selfish, t allowance for housekeeping meet the demands upon her, he never com plained. She had her daily pint, and he, perhaps, had his two or three quarts ; and neither interfered with the other, exqept at odd times, when she suc ceeded by dint of one little gentle artifice or another, to win him home an hour or two earlier at night, and now and then to spend an entire even ing at his own house. But these were rare occasions. They had been married ...

&lt;^jfT is with hopeful satisfaction we £ß dispatch the last little messenger ^ for this year to our friends, in having been enabled with their co operation, to reach the present stage of our existence ; and we feel that they will naturally look for a brief review of the past, and a general intimation of our future hopes and prospects. The miseries and evils of intemperance are fully admitted by all ; and itsalarm ing prevalence in these young colonies is a fact, which so intimately affects our future national welfare, as to call for the strenuous and increasing exertions of all thoughtful and in telligent men, in checking its destruc tive progress. With this object in view our little publication was started, and although many discouragements have arisen, some of them inseparable from such a project, yet, upon the whole we are bound to acknowledge that the hearty support of our friends, affords strong and convincing proof of the interest | now excited in many minds on the s...
History of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
pstarg of ^nsíntik WE left our readers in possession of 1 the intelligence, (in our last chapter,) that Governor Macquarie and suite had arrived at the proposed site foi the township of Bathurst. A road from our great city of the antipodes to that place was construc ted under the orders and supervision of the late and lamented Sir Thomas Mitchell, Surveyor-General of New South Wales. To give some idea of the difficulties he had to contend with, we may no tice that at a place called Mount York, the pass was so steep that team-men and bullock drivers had frequently to hew I down a tree or a log, and attach them behind their drays, to check their pro gress down the steep and rugged ridges. It is singular indeed to compare the rise and progress of the Bathurst dis trict, of the present day, with the first day of its dawn upon Australians. It is to this district that the whole island-continent of Australia owes its prosperity and greatness. It was here that grazing both sheep and cattle ...
NOT TO BE TRUSTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
NOT TO BE TRUSTED. A aistinguisnea nierciiant, a gréai judge of character, once said, " When I see one of my apprentices or clerks riding out on the Sabbath, on the Mon day I dismiss him ; such a one cannot be trusted." Remember this, boys, and form the habit of keeping the Sabbath, not only because God commands it which indeed should be the chief rea son ; but also because it will be for your best temporal interest. VERY CONSIDERATE.-A very con siderate hotel-keeper at Geelong adver tising his " Burton XXXX," concludes his advertisement in the following manner :-N.B. Parties drinking more than four glasses of this potent beverage at one sitting, carefully sent home gratis ! in a wheelbarrow if required.
HOW TO EMPTY JAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
HOW TO EMPTY JAILS. The Burlinaton Courier, U.S., says, that last year (1852), when the present jailor took charge of the jail, there were seven in its cells, and that there have since been, at different times, thirty others ; but now, since the Vermont Maine Law has had time to produce its legitimate effects, locks and keys are useless, as the jail is with out a tenant. This is the third jail in Vermont which has been emptied by the new prohibitory liquor law, and the editor adds :-' The simple truth is, the sale of liquor peoples jails-prohi biting its sale empties them-and it is in tiie power of the people to say which they will have.'
The Picnic. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
%\t f kit. OH, pleasant summer holidays ! when parties of merry young folks wander in the fields and woods, and gather wild flowers, and run up and down the verdant slopes, and play at hide and seek among the trees, or chase the bounding ball upon the green, and then, when tired of ramble and race, game and frolic, assemble at the base of some stately tree, and there on the fresh turf spread the sweet and simple repast of cakes and tarts and fruit. I trust it is pure water that they have in the great stone bottle, and milk in the smaller bottles. No other drink is half so good. All the birds that are singing in the air, all the flowers that are blooming on the earth, all the trees that are waving in the breeze, all the cattle on a thousand hills, are refreshed and strengthened by water ! Dear children, that fluid which gives strength and health to all nature is surely best for you. A wine bottle at a picnic, always puts me in mind of a poisonous serpent slyly coiled up among flowers...
LORD KINNAIRD AND TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 20 December 1856
LORD KINNAIRD AND TEMPERANCE. As lovers of our mixed constitution, we respect the Peerage, but we doubly admire those members of it who take a lively interest in the welfare, spiri tual and temporal, of their fellow men. Such people exalt themselves, as well as aid the cause they patronise. Our country may well be proud of such men as Lord Shaftesbury, Harrington, Leicester, and Kinnaird, who are ever and anon devising plans of ameliora ting the condition of their species, and advancing them in the social scale. We are ¡led to these remarks by an incident which we noticed last week, connected with Lord Kinnaird. Our readers will remember that, nearly two years ago, his lordship invited Mr. Gough to lecture in Dundee, for the purpose of giving the railway officials in that quarter an opportunity of hear ing that celebrated orator; and, upon that occasion, by way of encourage ment to those present, he took the pledge for a twelvemonth. To show that his convictions were not temporary o...
