The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
CJje Australian fiante (êouipiibn, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. -A BUSH Life, we consider in many respects, like life at sea; the same monotonous round of every day events, but wanting the excitement of ever changing scene enjoyed on the great ocean. Day by day, and year by year, the same tasks fall to the bushman; at earliest dawn he is forth seeking his cows in their great paddocks, and driving them to his stockyard; or leading forth his sheep, to crop the grass while yet the dew glistens on it. How delightful is a summer early dawn, deep in the bush ! ' An awful stillness, unbroken save by the occasional cry of a bird, or the bleat of sheep. The sun rises tinging all around with his first golden rays, the air is fresh and balmy, the perfume rising from the foliage delicious : the heart and soul of man feel uplifted, and an involuntary sense of gratitude steals over him. The day rolls on, the labour ceases as the sun sets, the sheep are in their fold and night comes on. In the dark h...
"THE MYALL LAKES." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
"THE MYALL LAKE S." -? ' THE Myall Lakes.' In a late number of the ' Australian Home Companion,' the numerous readers of that excellent publication may have observed an article styled ' The Lakes at Port Stephens,' and as the remarks made under that heading were thrown together for the purpose of attracting attention to a highly interesting, though secluded, and almost unknown part of the colony, it is desirable that one or two omissions should be now added to the general observations therein made. In drawing public attention to the Myall Lakes, it is but fair to point out the difficulty of access by describing the heights that must be climbed on the one side, and the long circuitous route by the river on the other, but once there an able settler may in truth say that he is monarch of all he surveys. As the Surveyor General of the colony has lately measured off a great number of small farms in different parts of the Lakes, of from twenty to a hundred acres each, and as the said farm...
"AS IF SHE DIDN'T KNOW!" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
"AS IF SHE DIDN'T KNOW!" THE Christmas log blazed on the hearth Some twenty years agone, And I sat in the ingle-nook Beside sweet Letty Lorn ; But though the touch of her soft hand Set all my heart a-glow, She look'd up archly in my face As if she didn't know ! Each word of hers I treasured up, I watch'd each wistful look, I studied every wayward whim As though it were a book ; But though I strove by act and word My ardent love to show, She ever treated me the same As if she didn't know ! I read her out soft tales of love From many an olden book, Of swains wno woo'd their ladies fair Beside some babbling brook ; And all the while I felt my face Flush up from lip to brow ; But still she listen'd on unmoved As if she didn't know ! At last, worn out by hopes and fears, I told my love outright Told how her fair face haunted me By day and eke by night ; As passion lent me eloquence, I vow'd by Cupid's bow I prized her more than life itself As if she didn't know ! SYLVESTEB CLARENCE.
EXAMINE YOUR LAWYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
, - EXAMINE YOUR LAWYERS. WE cannot Bee wüy tne Jüaw rxeiorm Association should not recommend some such examination as this, for every young barrister who wishes to be let loose upon society :-Would you consider it honest to undertake to be in two places At once? Would you risk your clients' interests by taking briefs to which it is impossible for you to devote sufficient .attention ? Would you change sides in the course of a cause, and for the sake of higher fees, carry over to the enemy information acquired from your first briefs? Would you, if ordered by the court to return client's fees, do your best to weary him out of his claim, or to cheat him ? Would you " eagerly assent to a reference," to save yourself the trouble of arguing out a just but complicated case of right? Would you appeal to heaven, professionally, as certain of your belief in what you know to be a lie ? Would you " hug " an attorney to seduce him into entrusting you with a brief? Would you give an "opinion" cal...
THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
THE HOLY HOMES. BY SILVERPEK. (Continued from page 99.) NELLY was very ill next day, though it brought a brightness of its own. This was the first morning of Dick's going to school, and Nance came to show him the way thither. Jim was to go, as well as little Ruth, as soon as their mother could get them some shoes and things to make them decent with-for both she and Joe wished them to be as respectable as their poor means afforded, though more than two-thirds of the children went ragged and shoeless. The little lad's heart was full of beautiful joy ; he was very fond of his book, and as old Madge had well said, there was that in the little fellow that might be made much of, if the chance were but given. So days went onwards, Joe's work still continued, and though the wages were low, he was very grateful for the assist- ance rendered. True to the sterling worth so often to be found in the English poor, his friend Bingley was not forgot- ten, every week Joe got an hour's leave from the...
CHAPTER XIV. LIDDY'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
CHAPTER XIV. LIDDY'S BIRTHDAY. To the astonishment ot all m the Tad casters household, the Pools for once broke through their iron rule of economy and seclusion, and invited the Normans to spend Liddy's Birthday evening with them. Though as yet the families had not been on more than speaking terms, Liddy had won a deep way in these soli- tary women's hearts, not so much through ber exceeding beauty, as by her artlessness and naive innocence. Another cause had assisted in drawing together these bonds of tenderness Their old mother had from the first tak( n. a great fancy to the child, and this had waxed rapidly into the most solicitous love. She would listen for her footsteps -reckon of her coming-seemed sudden- ly endowed with new life and spirits; when Liddy entered the room with her magpie on her shoulder, and this to the daughters who loved the aged creature with a reverential affection it is almost impossible to describe was an attrac- tion of the surest kind. So the Normans wer...
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. -~* THE EXPERIENCE OF LIFE.-What a fool I've been, A financier lately .described a poet as one who soared or dived after the infinite but didn't pay his bills. WHAT relation is that child to its father who is not its father's own son?-His daughter. THE mother who saw a baby prettier than her own has been sent to a lunatic establishment. WHAT kind of a fever have those who wish to have their names in print? Type-us (typhus). To some men it is indispensable to be worth money, for without it they would be worth nothing. No doubt there is room enough in the world for men and women, but it may be a serious question whether the latter are not taking up more than their share of it just now. MRS. Partington says, 'I cannot de- ceive how the young gentlemen can drink to such a recess, when they know it is so conjurious to their institutions. AN old maid, speaking of marriage, says it is like any other disease, while there's life there's hope. WHAT reason have we to sup...
SIGHTS AND SCENES IN SYDNEY, BY EVERAED EVERGREEN, THE YOUNGER, GENTLEMAN. No. I.—THE VALENTINE MANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
SIGHTS AND SCENES IN SYDNEY, BY EVERAED EVERGREEN, THE YOUNGER, GENTLEMAN. -+ No. I.-THE VALENTINE MANIA. A STROLL through George-street at about half-past ten o'clock in the morning should tho weather be very fine-is a rich and healthful treat. The semi-luminous shadows fall down so softly on the pave- ment, coolingly enwrapping you; the shop windows are tricked out so gaily in their various glories ,delightfully tempt- ing you; the hum of incipient city industry swells upon your ear so melodi- ously, telling you of the might and energy of life, that you must indeed be cold of heart and not very poetic of head, if you cannot steal an unalloyed rapture from the ramble. I often enjoy this promenade : that is to say, wherever the shadowed pavement is tolerable. From the post-office to Hunter-street, or vice versa, from Bathurst to Liverpool-streets, with a few score yards of unmistakeable exception ; I can gaze and meditate without any apprehension of tumbling into a Municipal chasm, ...
A TALE OF CIVIL WAR; OR, THE PARISH REVOLUTION! "My soul's in arms, and eager for the fray."—SHAKSPBRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 26 February 1859
A TALE OF CIVIL WAR; OB, THE PARISH REVOLUTION! "My soul's in arms, and eager for the fray."-SHAKSPBRE. NEVER was the usually quiet little village of Little Snuglington thrown into sud direful confusion as on a recent occasion, the details of which it is now our duty to lay before the reader. From the best sources of information, it appears that the revolutionary spirit first manifested itself in the Union Workhouse, the inmates of which com- fortable asylum have for some time past given vent to certain grumblings and growlings of disapprobation that were not to be mistaken. The master, fearing a sudden outburst of popular feeling, very prudently, in the first instance, sent to Mr. Bounce, the parish beadle, desiring to have his advice in an affair that threatened the total overthrow of his power and authority. In about hajf-an-hour afterwards, how- ever, the beadle hurried to the yard in which the refractory were assembled when, striking his staff fiercely upon the ground three tim...

OH TELL ME YE BREEZES. --o-- OH tell me ye breezes that spring from the west, Oh tell me ere passing away, If Leichardt's bold spirit has fled to its rest ? Where moulders the travellers clay? Perchance as ye flitted on heedlessly by The longlost was yielding his breath ; &nbsp; Perchance ye have borne on your wings the last sigh, &nbsp; That 'scap'd from the lone one in death. Then tell me ye breezes, ye've traversed the wild, And pass'd o'er the desolate spot, Where reposes in silence, sweet Nature's own child Were slumbers one nearly forgot ? Ye answer me not but are passing away Ye breezes that spring from the west, Unhallow'd still moulders the traveller's clay For unknown is the place of his rest. H. K. &nbsp;

-? INTELLIGENCE. "WE have taken the liberty of extracting and printing a paragraph received from our old friend and contributor, Mr. J. R. Houlding. Lest any of your readers should begin to think Îrour old contributor AQUA, is either dead or grown azy, you had better state among your usual notices that I have something preparing for your next issue. I am very far from being dead at present, thank God, the salubrious air of this charming district, the delightful weather which I have been favoured with since I came up, the wholesome unadultera ted fare, and the cheering welcome which has everywhere greeted me, have all tended to im prove my health surprisingly, and I hope to return to Sydney with renewed energy, when I will soon fetch up arrears of desk work. Well, I do not think I must admit that I have been lazy since I left Sydney. The Wesleyan Missionary meetings are being held just now, and I have had the honor of presiding at several and very much I have en oyed myself. I am try...

THE HOLY HOMES. BT SILVEBPEK. (Continued from page 114.) STILL Liddy stood with her back to the sofa, not as yet having seen who reclined there " Well it is the prettiest frock 1 ever saw,' exclaimed the woman with affected admiration, ' and what a pretty sleeve,' as she said this she lifted one of Liddy's beautiful arms, so that it could be seen in the strong rays of the lamp light. * Please let me go,' said Liddy, not liking this latter impertinence. So say ing she tried to get away. ' No don't be in a hurry dear,' intreated the woman ' my neice has not looked yet at this work round the frock, or your beautiful hair.' Liddy turned her face, glanced up at the bonneted woman, and felt sure she had seen her before, though in the ner vous trepidation of the moment she could not say where, ' It is beautiful,' said the suppositious neice, ' the loveliest I ever saw. Is it not.' She addressed the person, sitting in the rear, and whom, as yet Liddy had not seen. Now she turned quickly rou...

A LITTLE TOO BLUNT.) A SCENE AT A CHEAP INN. Hungry Customer : Here, waiter, bring me another carving-knife. I can't cut anything with this villanous thing ! Honest Waiter : Beg pardon, Sir, but we never sharpen the knives for a Shilling Ordinary.-Punch. DUBING the personal canvass of Mr. Garnett among the electors of Salford, he and his friends calling at a huckster's shop found only a boy, who, having learnt their business, went to the foot of the stairs and called, ' Mother, here's a man as wants yo'r vote for him t'be a Parliament man.'-'Well,' shouted the mother, 'tell him thy feyther's not in, but if he'll chalk his name on th' counter, we'll inquire into his character !' CHINESE WIT.-A missionary in the Chinese waters having distributed several copies of the Ten Commandments on shore, they were sent back the next day with the request that they might be distributed among the French and English, for the tracts contained admira ble doctrines, and these people evidently much need...
The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. THE BURWOOD MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
Cjje Australian ||anu (Jfcautpnion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL. -? THE BURWOOD MURDER. Wiî call this the age of improvement. We fondly believe men are growing more religious-more humane-more civilized-more intellectual. That the world generally is growing better. And yet time after time there are exhibited such specimens of sin and depravity, that we shudder at the sight. How is it that such scenes as the late murder at Burwood should ever be enacted ? We see a man and his wife who might have lived happily together, given up to sensual gratification. We see their companion of the same mind and tastes. We see the wife forgetting her fidelity and murdering or permitting tobe murdered her husband for the sake of an other; concealing and consenting to themurder; livingfor sixorsevenweeksinclose contact with a loathsome and putrid dead body : never trying to evade justice or to flee from the horrid scene of crime, bloodshed, and corruption. Surely the natural depravity of the heart must ha...

DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
DRINKS. FEW men can be induced to live in a state of isolation from their fellows, and fewer still can practice such abstinence from food and drink, as merely permits them to use what simply sustains life, without ministering to its pleasures. Diogenes and Simeon Stylites are neither common nor pleasant specimens of humanity. AU love society, and it is our anglo-saxon habit to combine eating and drinking in our social intercourse. Not that we are gluttonous or grossly sensual. Civilized life, sedentary occupations, and regular habits, preclude gormandizing ; but still the palate likes to be gratified, and social kindness loves to minister to such gratifica tion. Delicacy and flavour, richness and rarity, are more sought than quantity and profusion. It is almost appalling to think of the number of men and women whose lives are devoted to the production of delicacies ; and what an amount of talent is expended in administering to the senses of taste and smell. But notwithstanding the p...
LUCY'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 12 March 1859
LUCY'S LETTER. DBAB Mn. EDITOR,-I have frequently wondered why you did not call the attention of Sydney people to the cruelty practised towards animals daily in our streets. Of what can the men be thinking, that they can walk through the streets and see so many poor dogs and goats so shame fully ill-used. I think if the aldermen I did their duty, they would put a stop to such dreadful proceedings. I frequently see a great brute of a man pass my win dow, a dealer in fish-he walks lazily along, bawling out *' fish oh," and followed by two poor di'ooping panting dogs, who drag a cart loaded with fish. When all the stock has been sold, there is no relief for the poor dogs, as their cruel master lights his pipe, gets into the cart, and compels them to drag him home. Another man, a dealer in tin ware, loads his cart most unmercifully, then up hills, or over newly made roads, his unhappy dogs have to draw the burden. Boys naturally following the example of these older wretches, have their ...
