^[N a previous paper we partially investigated the nature and character of 3] our metropolitan in-door amusements, and ventured to suggest reasons ^ which called for the introduction and patronage of a higher class. Desirous of ever guarding the reputation of our city for morality and progress, we propose now to consider briefly, the existing mismanagement of one of those places specially consecrated to the out-door recreation of our inhabitants : we allude to the promenade on Hyde Park. Promoters of virtue need scarcely to be reminded that in this one depart ment involving the public weal there exists great cause for instant and thorough reform. Justly regarded as the lungs of this populous and important city, we apprehend it is the bounden duty of those who are deputed by the people to act for them as civic magistrates to see that justice and morality are main tained in the matter of the public domains. To abandon them, as Hyde Park now is, to the dominion of the lewd, the cruel, ...
"Call Again!" [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 March 1858
"dû lpn!" HERE Tom," said a respectable working tradesman to his son, one Saturday morning, " put on your best hat and coat, and go out and try to collect some money this morning-I must have five pounds to pay the man's wages to-night, for I could not pay him last Saturday night, and I know he wants his money, for his wife was re cently confined, and he has a large family. Here's a list, 'tis a long one although the amounts are very small. Tell the parties how much they will oblige me by paying you to-day. Some of the accounts have been a long time owing." Tom took the list and sallied out with no very sanguine expectations ; most of the parties he had called upon several times before, and had been peremptorily ordered to ' call again,' and he anticipated no better. success this morning. " Come in/' said a loud gruff voice, in response to Tom's gentle tap at the office door of Mr. Blow, the rich mer chant. " If you please, sir," said Tom as he respectfully entered the office, hat in...

SENDING BACK THB MONEY. At the Bankruptcy court, it was stated by the Commissioners that in the case of Leopold Redpath, the Great Northern Railway swindler, Mr. Pennell, the official assignee, had received a letter from a gentleman named Rowe, living in the north of England, enclosing £20, and stating that he had applied to Redpath for a subscription towards building a new church, and he had sent £20, He (Mr. Rowe) as a clergyman, did not feel him self justified in retaining it* as it was unquestionably the produce of fraud upon others. His Honour said that such con duct was highly commendable ? i- ?* t

ARAL [JEN BAND OF HOPE» I his society held its first annual meeting in the new Temperance Hall on the evening of the 16th ult. The meeting was well attended by both members and visitors, and as the object of the society is now beginning to be more clearly understood, there is little doubt but that ultimate success will crown the labours of those interested in it. The president, Mr* Cowan, in opening the proceedings, said, as he intended to address them again in the course of the evening, he would not then occupy their time by saying much > but would proceed at once to the more important part of the business : he here remarked that having been appointed to the additional offices of secretary and treasurer since the resignation of these omceis, he would now assume the duty of secretary, and read the REPORT. Your committee in bringing before you their first annual report of this society are rejoiced to see their efforts have been crowned with so much success ; notwithstanding the pe...
Poetry. THE WAGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 March 1858
THE WAGER. I THERE once lived a toper, I need not say where. The genus is lucklessly not very rare : Just take a walk through Sydney streets for a day, And alas ! you'll see proofs that it's true what I say. This veteran toper of whom I now write Would tipple strong fluids from morning till night. He'd a face like red cabbage-a nose like a plum, The essence of brandy, gin, whiskey, and rum. He one day agreed a large bet to decide, (And show correct taste, in which he took pride,) With his eyes bandaged tightly, by taste or by smell, The names of all liquids he'd instantly tell. The stakes were paid down, the bandage was tied, And the toper with spirits and wine was well plied : Every sample presented he named with a grin, Which shook his fat sides-for he thought he should win. And he said, as he grinned, " Why, who would suppose, I'd not know the rich stuff which has painted my nose? My every day's diet for forty-five years. Sure none but sheer fools could have such ideas!" " Come, ...

Family Retrenchment. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 March 1858
MRS. PIPKIN, I am under the disa greeable necessity of informing you that our family expenses are getting to be enormous. I see that carpet woman charged you a dollar for one day's work. Why, that is positively a man's wages ;-such presumption is" intolerable. Pity you did not make it yourself, Mis. Pipkin ; wives ought to lift their end of the yoke ; that's my creed. Little Tom Pipkin.-Papa, may I have this bit of paper on the floor ? it is your tailor's bill-says, " 400 dollars for your last year's clothes." Mr. Pipkin.-Toni, go to bed, and learn never to interrupt your father when he is talking. Yes, as I was saying, Mrs. Pipkin, wives should hold up their end of the yoke ; and it is high time there was a little retrenchment here ; superfluities must be dispensed with. Bridget.-Please sir, there are three baskets of champagne just come for you, and four boxes of cigars. . Mr. Pipián.-Will you please lock that door, Mrs. Pipkin, till I can get a chance to say what I have to say to...

THE COCKS-COMB. A TRUE STORY OP LONDON STREETS.-IN SEVEN CHAPTERS vi.-MARGARET'S RESTITUTION. I Well, the scanty breakfast was sooji dispatched, and then Margaret departed with her basket. - She purchased another plant, which was if anything rather finer than its unfortunate pre decessor, and carried it to the lady's house. With a beating heart, she again knocked at the door, and just as it was opened, the lady herself was passing through the hall. "Oh, I don't want anything to-day," she said supposing when she saw Margaret that she had come to offer her flowers again for sale, " but I will show the cocks-comb which you brought the other day, for it began to wither almost directly : I can't tell what is the matter with it." "Oh, ma'am!" exclaimed Margaret, " I knew it would wither, it was sure to do so." The lady started. " A boy running against me did it," con tinued Margaret hurriedly, " and the pins came into my head, and I tried to persuade myself it wasn't wrong as we were so p...
The Declaration of Independence. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 13 March 1858
Clje ^tatton of $iibepkna. ( Concluded from page 70.J ALL public dinners are discussed with more or less fuss and bustle ; but a Fourth of July dinner seems to surpass all others in these respects. Some stages of the proceedings of what is called by the printers in England, a " way-goose," are tolerably extra vagant, but these are eclipsed by far. The waiters seem more vivacious, and the guests more uproariously enthu siastic than on similar occasions. How the little men-those of brief duck legged architecture-do appear at these festivals. We could almost suspect' them, if we were io judge by seeing them eat, of having sold their birth-rights, like Esau, for a beefsteak. Talk to them of walking in military processions. Fie ! They repudiate labor in whatever shape, preferring to glorify the day of Independence by a grand demolition of turkey, with copious washes of golden sherry, or libations of sparkling moselle. Everybody, that is somebody, and even these who are to a certain exten...

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 27 March 1858
MELBOURNE. We believe the Temperance League of Victoria have sent home for a paid lecturer. We meet with the following letter of the Eev. Dr. Burns, of London. " Paddington, London, Dec. 10, 1857. " Sir-I have just received your docu ments in reference to the Temperance League of Victoria. 411 have long felt that I should like to visit the Australian colonies, and lecture on temperance and prohibition. If arrangements could be made, I would spend twelve or fifteen months in your parts of the world, including New Zealand; lecturing during the week, and preaching on the Lord's Day.
