MINE AND THINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 24 March 1860
MINE AND THINE. All that I was, —my sin, my guilt, my death was all my own, All that I am, I owe to thee, my gracious God alone. The evil of my former state was mine and only mine; The good in which I now rejoice is thine and only thine. The darkness of my former state, the bondage all was mine; The light of life in which I walk, the liberty is thine. Thy grace first made me feel my sin; it taught me to believe; Then in believing peace I found, and now I live, I live. All that I am, even here on earth, all that I hope to be, When Jesus comes and glory dawns, I owe it, Lord, to thee. REV. DR. BONAR.

ÜSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. -1 AUSTRALIAN MYCTERIA. Mycteria Australia.-SHAW. Barra*erma.-ABOBIOINBÍ. «?AM AS ON*-~ ; BUT very little is known of the habits ? of this fine bird. It is said to extend its haunts through- out Australia, but it is more abundant on ine northern and eastern shores than ¡ elsewhere. It is sometimes seen on the small islands of the Hunter Biver, and more frequently in the neighbourhood of the Clarance and Macleay. Leichardt met some specimens on the lagoons of the interior. No bird is more sly in disposition, or more difficult of approach : its feeding ground and resting place being always on the most exposed situa- tion, such as spits of land running out into the sea, large morasses, &c, where it can survey all around. Its food is varied, consisting of every kind of animal life inhabiting marshy situations, but more particularly I fish and reptiles. The head and neck are a rich deep glossy green, changing into purple, and violet at the neck ; greate...
ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
ART AND SCIENCE. | THE ARMSTRONG GUN SUPERSEDED. Since the adoption of Sir W. Armstrong's invention by the Government numerous competitors have entered the field, and the War Department has sanctioned the carrying out of experiments with vaiious specimens of breech-loading rifled ordnance which are stated to possess great advantages over the Armstrong gun. On Friday week a model gun, constructed upon principles invented by the head of a large engineering firm at Lambeth, was received at the Boyal Arsenal for examination by the ordnance select comittee ; and a rifle gun, in- vented by Mr. Jeffry, of Stepney, which was forwarded to Woolwich about three months since, has been tested at Shoe buryness, and is said to have proved the most extraordinary weapon in point of ! range efficiency yet intioduced. A Mr. Gosling, of Woolwich, also requests per- * mission to test an invention which be states will much enhance the efficien cy of the Armstrong gun.
A SURE WAY TO HEAL DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
A SURE WAY TO HEAL DIFFICULTIES. A person came to Mr. 1»-one day and said, ' I have something against yon, and I am come to tell you of it.' 'De walk in, sir,' he replied ; ' you are my best friend. If I could but engage ali my friends to be faithful with me, I should be sure to prosper ; buVif you please, we will both pray in the firs} place, and ask the blessing of God en our interview.' After they had rose from their knees, and had been muck blessed together, he said, now I thank you, my bi-other, to tell me what it is that you have against me.' ' 0 /' said the man, 41 really dont know what it is ; it is all gone, and believe I was in th? wrong.1
HINTS FOR HOMES. TREATMENT OF DIPTHERIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
HINTS FOR HOMES. TREATMENT OF DIPTHERIA. A_l . . ... . _. ¿v pnysician, writing to the Times some time since, sends the following [ prescription for the diptheria, previously remarking-'The disease is so fatal because it is mistreated. The local disease is not the beginning, but the end. It grows out of a febrile condition of the whole body, and its source is the brain. Diptheria is a new fangled name for an old-fashioned disease, 'malignant quinsy,' which, in the days of our grandmothers, was successfully treated by emetics and bark. This is the treatment which I have never yet found to fail. Let me give you a case. I was telegraphed to Brighton to see the daughter of a general officer, who was suffering from this disease. When I entered the room she was sitting up in. bed, breathing with great difficulty. The glands of the neck were hot and tumid ; the tonsils, on ex- amination, were of the color of red velvet ; but an emetic of ipecacuanha in fifteen minutes not only relieved the...
FRENCH GUN-BOATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
FRENCH GUN-BOATS. A correspondent of an American paper, I in describing the gun-boats which the French Government is now building, says :-4 They carry but one mast, and | are moved principally by a propeller j completely submerged. The mast as well as the machinery can be made to disappear when necessary. The boat carries but one gun, which is of the largest size, placed near the bow, point- ing forward, and behind a screenf blindage) which protects the gunners. The blind- age is the principal feature of this class of vessels. It consists in an immense oaken screen, covered with iron, set up- right across the vessel, and pierced with a hole for the muzzle of the big gun. The wooden part of this screen is twenty inches thick ; the iron which covers it has a thickness of five inches : total, twenty-five inches. The iron plate is retained by immense bolts and screws. After the keel of the vessel (which has a length of say seventy-five feet) is placed in position in the ordinary way, th...

A GUANO ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
A GUANO ISLAND. AMONG the various new manures intro- duced by experimenting agriculturists within the last quarter of a century, no one has been so rapidly and universally adopted as guano, which consists of the deposits of birds on the rocky islands of the ocean. It was first found on the island of Ichaboe, on the west coast of ' Africa : and since the supply from that source has been exhausted, it has been j chiefly obtained from a group of small ! islands called the Chineas, near the coast j of Peru. One of these islands on the side next the main land, rises preeipi ' tously from the sea, presenting only a I bare, dark wall of rock. From the upper edge of the precipice, the huge mound of guano slopes rapidly upward for a short distance, and then spreads into a level surface that gradually decends on every side to within a few yards of the water. The ships being brought close to the fact of the perpendicular side of the island, a huge canvas pipe is suspended from the top of the c...
FACTS FUN AND FANCY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
FACTS FUN AND FANCY SINGULAR RELATIONSHIP.-A few years ago, a Mr. W., with two children, both boys, entered into a matrimonial union with a widow, Mrs. F., having two daughters. In the course of time the husband died, leaving two young children, a little boy and girl. The eldest son of Mr. W., entered into a matrimonial union with his step-mother, Mrs. W. of course retaining the same name. A child was born, a fine bouncing little female. This being the state of the case, who can tell the precise relation the parties have with each other ? The step-son becomes step- father to those who by law are his step- sisters, while of the step-mother becomes the wife her step-son. This is plain enough. But what is the exact relation- ship of the little babe to the elder daughters of the daughters of Mrs. F. ? Can it be a step-sister when its father, the husband of their own mother, is their step-brother. It would seem so. But the 2nd son of Mr. W. married his step- sister, Miss F., and they hav...
SWISS COURTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
SWISS COURTING. , Is Switzerland, when a girl has arrived at marriageable age, the young men of the village assemble by consent on a given night at the gallery of the chalet in which the fair one resides. This .creates no manner of surprise in the mind of the parents, who not only wink at the practice, but are never better pleased than when the charms of their daughter attract the greatest number of admirers. Their arrival is soon an- nounced by sundry taps at the different windows. After the family in the house lias been roused and dressed (for the scene usually takes place at midnight, when they have all retired to rest,) the windows ?of the room prepared for the occasion, in which the girl is first alone, is opened. Then a parley commences, of rather a boisterous description ; each man in turn, urges is suit with all the eloquence and art of which he possessed. The fair one hesitates, doubts, asks questions, but comes to no decison. She then invites the party to partake of a repa...
ASCENDING PYRAMIDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
ASCENDING PYRAMIDS. The great pyramid of Cheops is said to contain six million cubic feet of stone, and to have occupied a hundred thousand men for twenty years in building it. Its , base is about eight hundred feet square, covering a surface of more than eleven acres, while its height, according to the most correct measurement, is four hun- dred and sixty-one feet. There are two hundred and six tiers of stones, from one to four feet in height, to be climbed, each receding as you ascend so as to make the side of the pyramid somewhat like a vast stair-way of solid stone. Some twenty minutes are occupied in ascending, which is done by the help of the Arab guides. On reaching the top, one may behold, to the eastward, the Nile stretching off in the distance, and the mountains which form the barriers of the Arabian desert. Westward may be seen the vast expanse of the desert itself. Southward the other pyramids are in full view, and the ancient Necropolis, extending not less than sixty mi...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
-? . CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. -* ANECDOTES OF. JULIUS CAESAR. THAT; night a loud noise was heard in Cato's room ; and when his son and ser- vants rushed in, they found him welter- ing in his blood ; a hasty attempt was made to bind up his wounds, but he íeso lutely tore them open and expired. All men mourned the sad end of this eminent Roman, for he had constantly acted as he believed to be right ; and when Caesar was told of his having destroyed himself, he said in a voice of j sorrow, ' Cato ! I envy you your death ! why did you not allow me the glory of frivinar vou vour life ?' In the meantime, Pompey's sons having raised a great army, marched against Caesar, and seemed determined to avenge the death of their father, by fighting against him with desperate courage. Caesar's soldiers were beginning to give way in the midst of the battle, and would soon have taken flight, but he hastily rushed into the midst of them, crying out, 4 Are you not ashamed to deliver me into th« hands of bo...
HOW YOU MAY KNOW GOOD FATHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
HOW YOU MAY KNOW GOOD FATHERS. _:_" IT is a good sign and true when you see amid a little group of boys one dart from the rest and tossing his arms above his head, shouts, ' There's my, father !' as he runs to meet him. You J may be sure, no matter what business j troubles soever that man may have, that there is a spot in his heart still fresh and green, which the cares of the world have Had no power to blight. ' There's my r father !' With what a pretty pride thc the little fellow shouts this ! After all, love is the only thing worth having in this world. They who stand over new made graves tell us so. Fame, and money, and ambition,dwindled to nothing beside the white, calm brow of death, though God knows it may be but the youngling of the flock, whose lips have never even learned to syllable our name.
BEAUTIFUL STAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
-» BEAUTIFUL STAR. BÏÀTJTIFUL star, in heaven so bright, Softly falls thy silv'ry light, As thou movest from earth afar ; Star of the evening, Beautiful Star. 1 In fancy'6 eye thou seem'st to say Follow me from earth away ; Upward thy spirit's pinions try To realms of love beyond the sky. Shine, O star of love divine ! May our soul's affection twine Around thee as thou mov'st afar, Star of the twilight, Beautiful Star. This song, arranged to a very pretty air, may b* had of J. B. Clark, George street.
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from page ISO) -4 LIBBY returned the maternal caress, with a passionate warmth that told of gratitude and love, more than this she aestled her face in the folds of the lady's > i garment, and wept out the bitterness «f the few past hours unrestrainedly. Hush! hush, no tears,' said the old I lady, ' I am earnest in my meaning, only I trust your hohotir to say nothing to Mrs. Stork.' A pressure of those little hands, a deeper nestling of the beauteous face, was the truthful answer. Poor child ! had these kind intentions been permitted to take place, her whole fate would have been different ; but they were not. The house was a spider's web, from which no fly was suffered to escape, if possible. The truth was, that from the moment of Liddy's entrance into the house both Stork and his wife regarded her with in- stinctive feelings of fear and envy. Her indescribable air of superiority, the more disagreeable to them on account of her social position, and her c...
BIOGRAPHIC OUTLINES. SAMUEL GOODRICH (PETER PARLEY). [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
BIOGRAPHIC OUTLINES. , -*- 1 SAMUEL GOODRICH (PETER PARLEY). ' IN the succeeding year, 1812, the war | broke out between the United States and England, but disturbed the unimportant town of Hartford in no other way than by the excitement of national feeling until 181o. During this time Goodrich re- mained quietly in hi3 situation, most concerned, it is to be supposed, in calm- ing down the mental fermentation with- in. But in 1813 orders were issued that all companies of town militia should be dispatched to New London, which was then in danger from the enemy. Good- rich belonged to an artillery company, which immediately started for New London, and reached the environs of that city, after a day's hard travel, Goodrich of course, being with it. But he was not destined to engage in actual fight, for the company was dismissed after remain- ing at New London six we eks, being admired by the women when they went to church, and marching through the town to the sound of fife and drum, unti...
COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
COLONIAL NEWS. Mr. William Kirton, at the Mount Keira Gardens, near Wollongong, has grown several pumpkins weighing within a few pounds of là cwt. Upon one stalk of the plant, fifteen of these monsters were grown, the smallest of which was 100 lbs. in weight.-The Aurora Aus- tralis was plainly visible in the south- east on the 28th and 29th ult.-Snowy River : the special correspondent of the . Sydney Morning Herald* represents the diggings in a very unfavourable aspect, and reports that, although every endear our has been made to discover fresh spots that are payable, they have all proved in vain. He says, emphatically, that there are no poor man's diggings at Kiandra, and that all the payable ground is taken up.-The 'Illawarra Mercury' states that the ' Mimosa,' on her last trip took back a hundred persons from the diggings, very few of them had done any good, and numbers of whom, unable to pay the full fare, had been kindly allowed by Captain Fletcher to come at reduced rates.-Lyn...
THE BROKEN FIDDLE.—AN IRISH STORY, SKETCHED FROM REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860
THE BROKEN FIDDLE.-AN IRISH STORY, SKETCHED FROM BEAL LIFE. POOR blind Jemmy Connor ! he played the sweet and plaintive melodies of Erin's Green' Isle with a deep and touohing pathos. I have listened to him ¥ for hours with a mixture of sadness and pleasure ; and as he drew the varying heart touching strains from the strings of his fiddle, I do not feel ashamed to own that he drews the tears from my eyes. He was taught by affliction. But, perhaps, you have never heard the story of Jemmy Connor and his broken fiddle ? well then, I will tell it you. The calm sunshine of domestic happi- ness brightened and made glad the young days of Jemmy Connor. He had married early in life the object of his devoted affection, whose faithful love and cheerful attention to household duties had endeared to him his little home. He never missed the clean and tidy room, the comfortable and whole- some repast, and the welcoming smile, at his return from his work; and his sober and industrious habits had ga...
