AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HIS -4 THE URSINE OPOSSUM. (Dasyurus ürsintis.) 4 THIS animal is a native of Tasmania, and is called by the colonists, the native devil! by which name it was known some thirty year.s back. Its head is thick, the. muzzle short and stout, the eyes small, the mouth wide. The limb3 arc short, robust, and clumsy ; the toes, five on the fore feet, %>ur on the hind, are armed with large claws, well adapted for burrowing.

The fur of the body is rather long, harsh, and black ; a white gorget is conspicuous on the chest, and a white transverse mark often crosses tbe haunches This animal measures twenty-one inches in length, exclusive of the tail, which is seven inches : it is stupid and voracious in the extreme. Its habits are nocturnal, and it frequents the shore of the sea, .f...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. THE HOME AND CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
C|t Australian Dome Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. _A_ -w THE HOME AND CHILDREN. * CHILDREN,' says the Scottish poet, ' are as dew-drops at day-spring on a seraph's locks, roses that bathe about the well of life ;' and the Oracle, using another simile, has proclaimed in the deep intonation of its music, ' happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them.' And indeed, no one can look upon children without an emotion of inexpressible joy ; they are comporatively innocent and untainted by sin ; they exhibit so much openness and confiding attachment. If they love, they will come and throw their little arm round your neck, and kiss again and again ; they act from feeling ; hence they so often judge correctly. They are bound by no fashion, but the fashion of affection ; bound by no tie, but the tie of seuls. Their domain is home ; they are the pledges of a true and holy faith ; the cup of labour becomes then the cup of blessing ; the curse of sin falls less heavily, the bitterness...
ALONE IN THE WORLD YET NOT ALONEA! LINES TO A YOUNG FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
J0 ALONE IN THE WORLD YET NOT ALONEA LI2TES TO A YOUNG FRIEND. _- -A. Oh, to be alone ! In social darkness drear ; The spirit racked with fear, Without a friend to cheer, Or comfort near It may be felt, but it defies expression. Oh, to be alone Î Amidst a world of seoxn, Despised and forlorn ; Of hope and pleasure shorn ; To evil born Tho heart expands, and will not bear représalo». Oh, to be alone ! While neighbours pass you by And look askance and shy, And break the hallowed tie Of unity The spirit shrinks and lays in dread prostration. Oh, to be alone Ï In sadness, woe, and sorrow, Nor a single hope can borrow, For a happier to-morrow, Life seems hollow Worthless, wretched, naught but one dull sensation» But you are not alone ; You may lose a friend in others, But you've one the best of 'brothers,' Whose love surpasses that of mother's,. Or any other's THEN TRUST IN HIM ; his love has no exemption. Tou are not alone ; Nor have you ought to fear, While Jesus sees the tear, And con...
WHAT IS THE LORD DOING AMONG YOU? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
WHAT IS THE LORD DOING AMONG YOU? A YOUNG minister, not long after his settlement among his people, was in- troduced to the devoted M'Cheyne. In- stead of greeting his visitor with the customary words of welcome, M'Cheyne accosted him with this searching, solemn question, 'What is the Lord doing among you?' Surprised, and grieved that to this he could only answer, ' Nothing. The Lord did not seem to be working at all among his people !' he was led, on his return, simply to tell them, at a Con- gregational prayer-meeting, what ques- tion M'Cheyne had put to him règarding them; his sorrow at having nothing to say, and his desire the Lord should begin to work mightily in their midst. This simple statement was blessed that same night to one soul, and in how many more the Lord then began to work in answer to prayer, the great day will declare.
EXCELSIOR! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
EXCELSIOR! -4 " Ambition is the stamp impressed by Heaven To mark the noblest minds.'-JONSON. A trite expression oft survives a man, And lives for ages past his mortal span ; Oft is a name remembered for a word Or single deed, which to the heart's referred ; And Raleigh's name's familiar to our ears ; Immortal words of his our history bears, A brilliant line writ by a noble son, " Fain would I climb, but that I fear to fall," Liyes ages after he life's course hath run, Together with the royal words attached Whose curtness craven hearts had quick de- spatched, " If thine heart doth fail thee do not climb at all.' How oft in life meet we with men like this, AnxioHs to climb, yet dread the goal to miss ; Ambition in their souls, their hearts in fear, And this, pervading all ; -they doubtful steer ; Life is a stormy voyage, 'set with shoals These, lacking courage, drift, and wreck their souls. To manhood true no danger is appalling, Through life 'twould ever climb, and risk the falling....
ANOTHER MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
ANOTHER MAN. , Though to ministers of the gospel be- longs the high preeminence of being * fellow laborers with God,' yet such honors are not reserved exclusively for the pulpit. The youth who, finding Sabbath rest in Christian labors, holds his Sabbath-class ; the mother, with her children grouped around her, and the Bible resting on her knee ; the friend who deals faithfully with another soul ; any man who kindly takes a poor sinner by the hand, and seeking to conduct him to the Saviour, says, 4 Come with us, and We will do thee good'-these, not less than ministers of the gospel, are 4 fellow laborers of God.' During a heavy storm off the coast of Spain, a dismasted merchantman was observed by a British frigate drifting before the gale. Every eye and glass were on her, and a shelter on deck suggested the idea that there might yet be life on boord. The order instantly sounds to put the ship about, and pre- sently a boat put off to the wreck. They reach it ; they shout, and now a st...
A MORNING'S SALUTE A LA FRANCE.' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
.A MORNING'S SALUTE A LA + FRANCE.' THE following fragmenta relating to the Peninsular War, during the reign of the great Napoleon, will give some of our colonists, an idea of the daring bravery of our present Allies, of La Belle France and the rapidity with which her soldiers follows the national eagles. During the severe contests against Marshall Soult, the late Colonel Snod- grass, who was for many years in com- mand of the troops in this colony, was stationed with about a thousand men in defence of a strong position-the o country residence of a Spanish family« The home had a fine garden at the rear , surrounded by a strong **all, built in the style peculiar to Spain.» which afforded excellentshelter to the infantry» who wera snugly encamped within the garden. The enemy having made several important attempts to foroe the position had with- drawn, and as there was no immediate prospect of an attack, the Colonel had issued a regimental order that all match- locks were to be undone,...
CHILDREN'S FORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
CHILDREN'S FORTFOLIO. j ANECDOTES ÖF JULIUS CAESAR. MANY of Casar's soldiers had now grown old and feeble, from their long se/vicef, and the many hardships they had endured; so that they could no longer make such rapid marches, nor endure so much fatigue, -as formerly, though they were still as courageous and as willing to fight as ever ; so they often entreated Casar to bring on another battle, especially as & bad fever raged in his camp» which reduced their num- bers every day, and they had scarcely »ny money or provisions left. Pompey, on the contrary, tried to delay fighting, because he was so unwill- ing to see two armies of Romans cutting themselves to pieces, and he hoped that their lives might be spared, owing to the sickness and distress in Cosar's camp, which must have soon obliged him to make peace. It was both wise and humane of Pompey to think as he did, though he was not able to act afterwards according to his wishes; for his army was as brave as Cosar's and qu...
A PATRIOT'S RESOLVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
A PATRIOT'S RESOLVE. A VENERABLE American miuister, of more than three-score years and ten, afflicted with a bodily infirmity, for which he had been advised by his phy- sician to use ardent spirit as a medicine, was presented with the total abstinece pledge. After reading it he said ' This is the thing that will save our country : it will free us from the deso- lating scourge of intemperance : I will sign it !' ' No,' said one of his friends, ' you must not sign it, because ardent spirits is necessary for you as a medicine.' ' I know,' said he, ' I have used it for many years ; but if something is not done, our country will be ruined ; and I will not be accessory to its ruin. I WILL sign if 'Then,' said another, 4 you will die.* . Well,' said the noble-minded old man, 4 for my country I CAN die.' The pledge was signed, the medicine was given up, and, stfange to say, the disease for which it had been prescribed, lied away. It was the remedy that kept up the disease ; and when he had ...
WHAT SIXPENCE A DAY WILL DO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
WHAT SIXPENCE A DAY WILL DO. r THERE was, recently, an old man in an Alms-House in Bristol, who boasted that for sixty years he spent sixpence a day in drink, but was never intoxicated. A gentleman who heard this statement, was somewhat curious to ascertain how much this sixponce a day, put by every year at five per cent, compound interest, would amount to in sixty years. Taking out his pencil, he began to calculate : putting down the first year's savings (365 sixpences), £9. 2-$. 6d., he added the interest, JJS. l£d., and thus went on year by year, until he found that, in the sixtieth year, the 6d. a day reached ß the startling sum of £3,225 16s. 8d. Judge of the old man's surprise when told that, had he saved his sixpence a day, and allowed it to accumulate at compound interest, he might have been worth the above noble sum ; so that, instead of taking refuge in an Aims House, he might have comforted himself with a house of his own, costing £700, and fifty acres of land, worth £50 ...
THE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES OF MARRIED LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
-* THE EIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES OF MARRIED LIFE. BITTING with ociara in her father drawing-room, I could always find sonn thing to say to her. Finding my se seated beside her as bridegroom, on th wedding-tour, I was quite at a loss. \V were both silent for a long time. Com&lt; thought I, this will never do, I must sa, something. Let me see ; it's beautifu weather-I'll say that. So I said it * It's a fine day, Clara.' * Is it indeed 5 said she. * Well, I'm obliged to you fo the information.' She said this as spite fully as if we had been married year! instead of hours. Well, thought I, thu v is a strange beginning ; but perhaps ii was a stupid and common-place tiling tc say to one's bride at the outset. I'll trj a more tender strain. So I said, rathei timorously, 'Are you happy, Clara? 0 * Don't be a fool !' This was the reply * Don't be a fool !' Was ever bridegroom so saluted before? I was choked. 1 looked at my bride in stupified amaze- ment, scarcely believing my ears. ' My ...
HEART QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
HEART QUESTIONS. Are you a Christian ? If not, do you ever expect to be? If so, when? If God should soon call you to your final account, what reason could yon give for being impenitent ? Might you not be â Christian now? Delay not, then, now to seek salvation, lest you should put it off too long, or at last seek too late. Receive these questions kindly from one who may never meet you till the day of judgment. Think of them ; think seri* ously ; think prayerfully ; think now.

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from page 35) MONTAGUE, otherwise Clark, or indeed any other of some twenty aliases he was known by, had taken a flashy lodging, ina locality of tarnished fame near the Î Haymarket ; this for the convenience of his fair danseuse ; though in reality his home was anywhere, where the business of the last concerted scheme of business called. Just at this time it was a hidden court at the rear of Cornhill, and here, he and the friend who assisted in polite ministrations to Mrs. York, as well as another confident, sat in council as to what was to be done : it having been ascertained that a more than usually large- sum was at the tin e in Mr. Wrox eter's keeping. Their power over the lad was felt to be already wane, and in deed in spite of promises both to them- selves and Adeline, he had not been near their haunts for more than a week. They had already tampered with him, as to the means of ingress to the premises, but had failed in eliciting what they required :...
ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
-w ART AND SCIENCE. TIMS AN© PHOTOGBAPHT-We have heard it affirmed that a fly is a medium sized object amongst living beings meaning that there are objects as much smaller than a fly as an elephant or a whale is larger, and this we believe to be true. But what shall we say to a second in respect to photographic time of action ? Taking six hours as the maximum time . of exposure, we can show differences m ' times of exposure, and variations in active action on the other side of a second of time, far exceeding anything ever dreamed of in the ordinary practice of photography. In taking photographs of rapidly-moving objects-the waves of the sea, for instance-we have been ob- liged to judge of the proper exposure requisite to bring out the half-tints, and estimate differences of time varying be- tween the l-50th and the l-l 20th of a second. Exposures like these are, how- ever, enormous when compared with the time occupied in other photographic ex- periments. Thus, in solar photogi-aphy,...
DOMESTIC LIFE IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 11 February 1860
DOMESTIC LIFE IN AUSTRALIA. BY CAROLINE CHISHOLM. LUCY, the now happy Lucyt-happy in the consciousness of having performed a sacred duty by making her parent the confidant of her secrets, and strengthen 0 ed in her judgement by this council, now looked on the attachment for Graham in a different light ; her confidence in her- self was less-she would have no more concealments, no more clandestine meet- ings- no more secret letter writing. She met Graham the next day, and she looked, if anything, more lovely than ever; there was a sereneness, a placidness of expression spread over her counte- nance, as if a variety of feelings had given their own peculiar hue to her * features ; there was tenderness intermixed with firmness, there was fear mixed with hope, and a touch of melancholy inter- mingled with all, that gave a peculiar softness and expression to her looks, for her heart was teaming with affection towards him, but her moral feelings had been aroused, nay alarmed ; she had raise...
