Poetry. THE BOTTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
THE BOTTLE. WHAT gives the pallid hue to youth, The palsied step, the foetid breath, The bloodshot eye, the ruined health ? The Bottle! What oft makes widows' tears to flow, And orphans want and shame to know, And often houseless wanderers too ? The Bottle! What fills our streets with those-our shame Will scarcely even dare to name, But whom we pity more than blame ? The Bottle! What fills our hospitals and jails, And oft our awe-struck ear assails With self-inflicted misery's wails ? The Bottle! What prompts the wretched suicide His misery and shame to hide, To plunge beneath.the silent tide ? The Bottle! What causes God's most holy day To be profaned by idle play, And crimes my pen dare not pourtray ? The Bottle! Hear you the sound of yon jail bell ? It tolls the murderer's funeral knell; The dreadful cause-Oh hear him tell! The Bottle! What ravages this beauteous land, And deals distress on every hand ? 'Tis Satan's most infernal brand The Bottle! Christians! both old and young, ...
PURE AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
PURE AIR. Throw open the window, and fasten it there, Fling the curtain aside, and the blind. And give a free entrance to heaven's pure air; 'Tis the life and the health of mankind. Are you fond of coughs, colds, dyspepsia, and rheums, Of headaches, and fevers, and chills ? Of bitters, hot drops, and medicine fumes, And bleeding, and blisters, and pills ? Then be sure when you sleep that all air is shut out; Place, too, a warm brick at your feet, Put a bandage of flannel your neck quite about, And cover your head with a sheet. But would you avoid all forms of disease, Then haste to the fresh open air, Where your cheek may kindly be fanned, by the breeze; 'Twill make you well, happy, and fair. Then open the window, and fasten it there, Fling the curtain aside, and the blind, And give free admission to heaven's pure air ; 'Tis life, light, and joy to mankind. -British Workman.
No title [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
'R. JOSHUA JANSEN sat quietly in his large wicker chair. His business was over for the day, and he looked around complaisantly at the quiet scene which everywhere met his eye. He sat in the cool shade of his verandah; the sweet smell of flowers from a well-trimmed garden rose like incense, as if rewarding him for the toil he had undergone; the sound of the water lapping against the little jetty where a neat boat quietly rocked in the gentle swell, fell soothingly upon his ear, for his house was situated in one of the three tlioasand quiet bays that our own Sydney harbour can boast of; it W3|g too early for the musquitoes to begin their torments, and the flies had fled from the shady nook to the bright sunshine at the other end of the verandah. Joshua smiled, and muttered to himself, " who would have thought it ? I came to this pleasant land without a penny, and now I can retire from toil and in this sweet spot, with an occasional trip to the old country, can spend the rest of my day...

ARALUEN BAND OF HOPE. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Journal. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
ARALUEN BAND OF HOPE. To the Editor of the Band of Hope Journal. SIR, -I have the pleasure to inform you that we held our opening meeting, to read the rules and explain the principles of the Araluen Band of Hope, last evening. The attendance was better than expected, and would have been more numerous had it been moonlight. The business was opened by the president, Mr. Cowan ; and the secretary, Mr. Jobling, after reading the rules, addressed the meet ing, urging the necessity of co operation to carry out the object of the society. Sixteen enrolled them selves members and took the pledge, principally adults of both sexes-a greater number are expected to join next Monday, and as soon as it be comes better understood it is probable that the greater number of the children on the diggings will become members. I have the honour to be, your most obedient servant, Gr. JGBLING, Secretary. Araluen, Feb. 17, 1857.
Ten Hights in a Bar-Room. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
®en Higljts in a |kr-|ioflra:. (Continued from page 60.^ BY T, S. ARTHUB. AFTER supper I went to the sitting room, and remained there until the lamps were lighted. A newspaper occupied my time for perhaps half an hour; then the buzz of voices from the adjoining bar-room which h^d been increasing for some time, attracted my attention, and I went in there to see and hear what was passing. The j first person upon whom my eyes rested was young Hammond, who sat talking with a man older than himself several years. At a glance, I saw that this man could only associate him self with Willy Hammond as a tempter. Unscrupulous selfishness was written all over his sinister countenance ; and I wondered that it did not strike every one, as it did me, with instant repulsion. There could not be, I felt certain, any common ground of association, for two such persons, but the dead level of a village bar-room. I afterwards learned, during the evening, that this man's name^vas Harvey Green, and that he ...
OUR MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Band of Hope Journal — 28 February 1857
OUR MESS A GE. IT has sometimes seemed to us that one of the greatest pleasures connected with periodical literature is often overlooked in a magazine-that of cordial and friendly intercourse between the editor and his readers. By their suffrages he is placed in an important and responsible position: catering to supply some intellectual or moral want, some essential to their happiness or advancement, he is ever accountable to them for the trust he holds. Often to the readers of a magazine, he is some "Airy nothing, without a local habitation or a name," a spirit without embodiment-believed to be wandering, though in shape undefinable, through the pages of a " monthly part," eluding every effort to close with him-fearlessly passing each sentinel, disdainful of inquiry or challenge. No doubt he himself feels that, clothed in the habiliments of mystery, he holds a more despotic sway, and that to reveal himself would be to dispel all that halo of superstition that at present encircles h...
