CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860

CORRESPONDENCE«. To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. MR. EDITO»,-In some of your late issues you have been alluding to a Hagged School about to be started in Sydney ; and in your publication of to- day, you say, ' it has been proposed, within the last few weeks to establish a school of this sort in Sydney.' You then expatiate on the expenses and exertions requisite for the successful establish- ment and conduct of such a school. Now, Mr. Editor, as by writing so, I presume you are igno- rant of the fact that such a school is already in existence in Sydney, and that all the difficulties of commencement, &c, have been encountered and overcome by the unaided zealous devotion of a lady and her children, and that it has now been in operation about two months, not a thousand miles from the Scotch Church, Church Hill. If, like one of old, you express surprize and say, ' Can any good thing come out of Nazareth,' I can only invite you to come and see. The school meets dai...

N OTICES. Vocal Music Association.-A concert of this society was held on Tuesday evening, March 27th ; the audience were pretty numerous. Madame Sarah Flower, Mr. J. Howson, and other artistes were engaged to assist on the occasion. The pieces selected were well executed, and frequently encored. 'Must 1 len ve thee, Paradise,' by M. Sarah Flower, was exquisitely rendered. This society deserves every encouragement in its en- deavours to bring first class musical entertain- ments within the means of all. THE ' Goulburn Herald' of the 31st ultimo says, - In accordance with the usage of the Wesleyan Connexion the ministers belonging to this circuit are now on their way to other stations. Without exception they are all deservedly beloved in the spheres in which they have respectively been labouring. The Rev. W. Kelynack is being re- moved from Braidwood to Yass ; so that he will not be perhaps less seen by his Goulburn friends than formerly ; but the Rev. J Watsford, being removed to Mai...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. SLAUGHTER HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860

$]}t Australian Jome Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. - SLAUGHTERHOUSES. WE may enumerate many of these, wholesale and retail. The battlefield, where gory-handed ambition slays skillfully, and according to the most modern improvements of destructive engines of war, thousands and tens of thousands of human beings. We may take the graveyard in the midst of a dense city i population, where the smouldering and putrifying remains of humanity are destroying the living, so that what we once admired, loved, venerated, is to us the agency of disease and death. We may take the licensed tavern as dealing forth under the sanction of law, liquid poison, multiplying disease, insanity and f death-physical and moral ruin to the gin and brandy loving portion of our population. We may go to many employments as fatal to life, which never- theless are sought for as the means of livelihood, although the span of existence is shortened thereby to a few sorry years.

THE POST-OFFICE AS IT WAS IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860

THE POST-OFFICE AS IT WAS IN MELBOURNE. BY CHARLES EDWARDS. -* IT was a curious building that old post office at the corner of Bourke and Eliza- beth-streets ; what style of architecture it belonged to would have been difficult to determine : it was something between a barrack and a hospital. The French would have called it l'Hotel Dieu, from the number of starving individuals who used to take up their abode under the i portico ; and one of the brightest features ! in the life of the Whittington of Mel- bourne, was when, one Sunday afternoon, lie led this famished mob to a neighbour- ing restaurant and regaled them to a dinner. Poor John Thomas ! how have tlie mighty fallen ; and the post-office bas been levelled with the ground too, sud nothing remains but the office of the detective constables, which)peers spectre- like through the ruins exposed to the vulgar gaze of the passers by. What '«ales that little building could tell : how many celebrities in the criminal history of the c...

A CHRISTMAS BALL IN BETHLEM HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860

A CHRISTMAS BALL IN BETHLEM HOSPITAL. _ A THE announcement of a ball in Bedlam seems at the first blush, almost as much anomaly as a fancy fair in Pentonvale Penitentiary, or a flower show at Char ing-cross Hospital. A restrospective glance, however, at the modern treat ment of lunacy, and at the gentle and soothing remedies now brought to bear on that unhappy disease-methods which have been marvellously successful in allevaiting its pangs, if not in mitigating its severity and arresting its progress will convince us that a soirée dansante in oar great civic hospitals for lunatics is a perfectly rational and desirable adjunct to the system of treatment adopted by the learned, skilful, and eminently benevolent men who have made mental maladies their study, and have devoted their time and energies to the painful and laborious task of the care of the insane. Although comfort, kindness, and healthful relaxation ave now the rule in well-conducted lunatic asylums, in lieu of the old, horr...

THE CHARACTERS OF CHRIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860

THE CHARACTERS OF CHRIST. How difficult would it be to name a noble figure, a sweet simile, or a tender and attractive relationship, in which Jesus is not set forth to woo the re- luctant sinner, and cheer the desponding saint. Am I wounded? He is balm. Am I sick ? He his medicine. Am I naked? He is clothing. Am I poor? He is wealth Am I hungry? He is bread. Am I thirsty ? He is water. Am I in debt ? He is a surety. Am I in darkness ? He is a sun. Have I a howse to build ? He is a rock. Must I face the black and gathering storm ? He is an anchor, sure and steadfast. Am I to be tried ? He is an advocate. Is sentence passed, and I am condemned ? He is pardon. To deck him out and set him forth, nature culls her finest flowers, brings her choicest ornaments, and lays her treasures at his feet. The skies con- tribute their stars ; the sea gives its pearls ; from fields and mountains, earth brings the tribute of her gold and gems, and myrrh and frankincense- the lily of the valley, the cl...

THE MURDER OF THE LAMB: A LEGEND OF THE SHEEP-FOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 7 April 1860

THE MURDER OF THE LAMB: A LEGEND OF THE SHEEP-FOLD. BY CHARLES HABPUB. _A._ I. O'er the heavenmost verge of a mountain high Through a gate of burning gold, The Sun, pven like a great red eye, Looks down against the Fold ; While the stirring sheep out staring keep, Their Shepherd to behold. Forth from his well-slabbed Lodge thereby Singing a merry rhyme, He comes-for his old heart runs high For joy in his morning's prime : And with him comes a Shepherd Boy, For it is lambing Urne.» And at their side with social mien And glossy waving hair, A well-kept, well-taught Colley's seen Right knowingly to fare : A sage and faithful dog, I ween, And full of happy care. * At the time to which this refers, but few of the flockmasters of the Colony had more than a single (large or 6mall) flock of mixed sheep, the breeding ewes being "lambed down," not by them- selves as now, but mostly along with the rest in the manner indicated. And indeed, I am myself compelled at the present writing, by the sc...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860

CJjt ^astraliaa ]§®ine Cutttpntjii, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL EDUCATION. THE term Education is commonly applied to those only who can read, write, and have a smattering of arithmetic, or, as an old and ignorant man once observed at a public meeting,, as consisting of the three It's-reading, 'riting, and 'rithmefcic. Never was there a word in our language taken in such a limited sense. Education not simply applies to the first rudiments of learning, but in the teaching of manners, habits, and customs. It it stops short at the rudiments only that are taught at primary schools, it falls much under the mark. If it even be extended to some of the higher branches of education it yet unfulfills its true mission. If to tutors and instructors of youth these duties consisted only in the teaching of Mavor, Carpenter, Guy, and Pinnock, their task would be easy indeed, and their money easily earned ; but among masters who thoroughly understand the responsibilities they assume, much more is requir...

REMARKABLE ELECTRICAL PHEMOMENA, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860

REMARKABLE ELECTRICAL PHEMOMENA, Some of the most remarkable electrical phenomena are observable in the houses pf New York, where the rooms are covered with a thick carpet, and strongly heated my means of a hot-air apparatus. If one move upon such a carpet with a sliding or sci aping motion, and then pre sent the knuckle to a metallic conductor, such as the handle of the door, an elec tric spark, accompanied by a crackling noise, will be perceived. If one goes in this way once or twice quickly along the carpet, the spark may be three quar ters of an inch long, very brilliant, and accompanied by a tolerably loud noise. This phenomenon is common to almost every house in New York, where the rooms are covered with a woollen carpet, and are well warmed and dry. Professor Loomis visited a ,lady in New York where the phenomenon was exhibited in a marked degree. She made one or two short strides upon the carpet, and then sprang up so as nearly to touch the metal work of a gas-chandelier. Aa...
