AFRICAN EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
AFRICAN EMIGRATION. THE following humorous letter on the comforts of emigration to Africa, is given in Mr. Hood's Comic Annual: ' Dear brother,-Here we are, thank Providence, safe and well, and in the j finest country you evei saw. At this moment I have before me the sublime expanse of Squampash Flats-the majes tic Mudiboo winding through the midst, and the magnificent range of the Squab mountains in the distance. But the prospect it is impossible to describe in a letter ! I might as well attempt a pano rama in a pill box ! We have fixed our settlement on the left bank of the river. In crossing the rapids we lost most of our heavy baggage, and all our iron work; but by great good fortune we saved Mrs. Paisley's grand piano, and the children's toys. Our infant city con sists of three log-huts, and one of clay, which, however, on the second day, fell into the ground landlord's. We have now built it up again, and, all things considered, are as comfortable as we could expect-and have ch...
CHARADES, &C. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
CHARADES.&C. I. My first is what the ladies lisp Oft at the dinner table, And what my second tries to reach As soon as he is able, And what my third shall never touch While I can keep him from it. My whole we all can look upon Whenever we like best, Sometimes its bosom is disturbed More often 'lis at rest.; J. H. R. II. .A tfeary soldier from my third Retiring sought for rest, Beneath the shadow of my first His aching limbs he press'd. He slept there long, for visions sweet Came flitting o'er his troubled brain; He dreamt not of the battle's strife But of blest peace and home again. He thought that in his arms he prest My second's lovely, trembling form, Thai one to him so truly blest, For whom he braved the battle's storm, His own belov'd, his dearest wife, He sees once more, and vows to roam No more away, nor seek the strife But live with her content at home. Par from this scene I've pictured now, My whole is in Australia seen, A country town away to North You soon will gu...
THE STORY OF A MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
THE STORY OF A MARRIAGE. IT will be in the recollection of most of our (' Carlisle Patriot') readers that on a fine morning in the summer of 1854, the quiet town of Appleby was startled with unusual activity by an announce ment that a young girl, resident at a boarding school in the town, had disap peared during the night in company-as was suspected, and as turned out to be the fact-with her music teacher. The young lady's age at the time was, we believe, thirteen or fourteen, while that of the gentleman-who then held the situation of organist of the parish cburcb -might be about twenty-four. Pursuit was forthwith given, and the electric telegraph put in motion, but the parties arrived at Gretna, where marriage could then be celebrated ad libitum, without any regard to age or any other of the legal requisites attached to the English ceremony, and the Gordian knot was tied ere a veto could be put upon the rash proceedings. No doubt the happy pair now thought the worst past-a too comm...
A DREAM, AND YET A PAINFUL REALITY. (FROM THE Newry Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
A DREAM, AND YET A PAINFUL BEALITT. (FROM THE Netory Herald.) THE following comes to us, introduced thus : *32, Eccles-street, Dublin, ' 29th June' 18fi9. .Dear sir,-The enclosed little alle gory, was written by a lady who has a large and young family. She takes a warm interest in the Temperance move ment. It is worthy of a place in every journal that takes an interest in Teeto talism. I hope many papers will copy it from your columns. -Yours respectfully, James Haughton.' Like good John Bunyan of old, me thought I found myself in a splendid city. It may have been in that wonderful Japan, but it was certainly in the Antipodes. I walked through streets busy with commerce, Raw shops teeming with wondrous art, palace-like mansions, glorious public buildings, and a noble river, bearing on its bosom treasure freighted ships. The men were handsome, intelligent, and well dressed, and the women and children lovely. To crown all, I was told they possessed a 'truly paternal' Government, devot...
ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
ART AND SCIENCE. HERK HOCHSTATTEB, of Hesse Davm stadt, has invented a species of paper the explosive power of which and other projective capabilities are said to surpass those of gunpowder. He has been invited to Woolwich to try the efficiency of his new discorery. MANUFACTURE OF PAPER. - After a large number of experiments, Dr. Collyer has succeeded in manufacturing a paper from straw which is in every respect equal to rag paper-many reams having already been finished. By his mode of treating the straw he splits it, and separates the silica'and^gluten without in any way injuring the fibre. Baron Liebig has pronounced a very favourable "opinion of the invention, and of the manufactured article, and we understand that the necessary arrangements will shortly be complete for showing the entire process necessary for converting two tons of straw into a ton of first-class printing paper.-Mining Journal. SELF-WINDING CLOCK.-After years of mechanical labour and many mechanical tests, Mr. J...
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
CHAPTER in. Oh, how we press some hidden token, OF loye that once was ours, Close to our heart that acheth, broken, Faded like storm-crush«d flowers. ANON. 4 FULL twenty long years of my life flowed evenly on, and the gray hairs began to fall from the hand of time upon my head. I never married, for if ever the thought flashed upon me, those great grey eyes were sure to come in sad re proach between me and my thought. Yes, twenty years had passed when I one morning found a note upon my table. Thus it ran '' Clara Haparrassek would be glad to see Mr. St. John.' ' There was an address, but it was to so low a part of the town that it made me start. Could my flower, my pure violet, breathe in such an atmosphere as that? I went-how quickly you may imagine, my pet. I was shown into a room squalid, smoky, and with the ceil ing fallen, and a chill wind blowing through,, but clean and neat as such a, place could be. '' She's not long for this world,' the woman who guided me said, as she point...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
CHAPTER II. Each in his own strict line we move, And some find death ere they find love; So far apart their lives are thrown From the twin soul that halves their own. And sometimes, by still harder fate, . The Iovers'meet, but meet too late. * Thy heart is mine !' ' True, true, ah true!' * Then, love, thy hand! ' Ah, no! adieu!' -ARNOLD. * I MIGHT have seen that girl's face often before-very likely I did. Bat Menie, lighthearted one, believe an old man when he tells you that all souls on earth are twinned, and that souls recognize their fellow-soulg when they look forth from the eyes of the body-temple. I remember, Menie, being inclined to cavil at a remark of Leigh Hunt in his 4 Reli gion of the Heart'-' Be assured that we bodily creatures behold the spirit of which we partake ; that we, 4 houses not made with hands,' disclose the inhabi tants at their windows; that in looking up into the human eye we see a soul.' Bat I agree now to the assertion In siy far as this, that if a soul ...
HINTS FOR HOMES. INDIAN CORN FLOUR AND WHEATEN BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
HINTS FOR HOMES. INDIAN CORN FLOUR AND WHEATBN BREAD. The peculiarity of this bread consists in its being composed in part of Indian flour, which will be seen, by the follow ing analysis by the late Professor Johnston, to be much richer in gluten and fatty matter than the flour of wheat, to which circumstance it owes its highly nutritive character: English Fine.

BROKEN SLUMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
BROKEN SLUMBERS. A fearful outcry rends the vista round," A piercing bitter shriek, as when a being lost Or tortured to the utmost of his life, Outpours his lamentation, as his strength, Gives up the contest and succumbs : Deep groans and wails, as though departed ghosts Had come lamenting o'er the crime : I,-who that dreadful note, so fraught with woe Did hear, and shuddered as its accents fell With curdling «ound of horror on mine ears Did tremble, as -with hasty step I flew To seek the cause, and aid perchance to give. ' What sounds are those ?' I cried to one I met, Whose sage and calm appearance spoke his ?worth ' What dreadful deed is being done that shrieks And groans so sad fill up the air of night ?' He gazed, and smiled, as in his accents calm He said ' Tis but the cats upon the roof.' G. B. M.
THE FIRST TWENTY YEAES OF A MAN'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
THE FIRST TWENTY YEAES OF A MAN'S LIFE. Livb as long as you may, the first twenty years form the greater part of your life. They appear so when passing -they seem to have been so when we look back to them-and they take up more room in our memory than all the years that succeed them. If this be so, how important that thev should be passed ill planting good principles, cultivating good tastes, strengthening good habits, and fleeing all those pleasures which lay up bitterness and sorrow for time to come I Take good care of the first twenty years of your life, and you may hope that the last twenty will take good care of you.
THE FRENCHMAN'S BENEFIT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
THE FRENCHMAN'S BENEFIT SOCIETY. A FBENCH publication-the Almanack du Laboureur - gives the following anecdote: - 'In a factory, where a hundred workmen were assembled, one of them rose and said, ' My f riends, three months ago I entered a Society. A xnbnth after, I had a sovereign in my pocket-a thing I could never keep there before; two months after, I had a good C6at on my back-a thing I had never felt there before. Some months longer, aiid I shall have a' cottage, furniture, a garden, flowers, vegetables, fuel in my cellar, flour in my sack, and linen in my chest.' His fellow-workmen all cried out, * Tell us what is the Society you have joined!' He answered immediately, 'THE TEMPEUANCE SOCIETY.'
ENJOYMENT OF RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
ENJOYMENT OF RELIGION. WHEN you propose to yourself the question, ' Do I enjoy the comforts of religion ? it is not difficult to find a true answer, and I would hope a satisfactory one. You have but to ask, Do I enjoy God himself? Do I enjoy the truths of re ligion? Do I enjoy its sweet and heaven ly spirit? Do I enjoy its refreshing duties ? Do I enjoy the ordinary duties of my calling ? Do I enjoy the approba tion of my own conscience ? If you enjoy these, then you enjoy the comforts of religion: you enjoy its hopes, its pro spects, its triumphs in the world, and its everlasting triumphs hereafter. - - THE vJ ON Tit AST.
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. MY PICTURE BOOK, I HAVE a friend-a dear old friend from home - who, whenever she goes out, comes and peeps through my window curtains, and tells mo pretty little stories, and shows me many a picture of what she has heard and seen the evening be fore. I watch for her gentle smiling face, it reminds me of my merry child hood, where-when I nestled my head into my pillow - I was rather afraid of all the moving figures which she painted on my little bed ; it makes me wish for ideals, too glowing and too beautiful to be realized. Now I wait for her and want to learn what she has seen. I watch the passing clouds, will she come to-night and pay jne her welcome visit ? Oh, there she is, there is tiie dear old face, just the sauie as it used to look down upon me in my beloved home-the face of the moon. And now listen, what is she going to tell me? THE HINDOO GIRL. The evening was quiet, the stream rushed quickly on in curling waves, and my beams made them shine in sparkl...
COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
COLONIAL NEWS. WE have lately paid a visit to Mr. Patterson's Arboratinn at Balmain, and were much pleased to witness the rare collection of plants and exotics, many of them introduced at great expense and labour in this colony. We would recom mend the lover of botany, and all those who take an interest in the introduction of plants indigenous to foreign climates, to take a stroll over Mr. Patterson's shrubbery, and their trouble will be amply repaid. At the last Horticultural Exhibition the first prize was awarded to the indefatigable owner of the Balmain arboratum.-The ostensible cause of the New Zealand war is the purchase of a tract of land near Taranaki by the British Government, and the determination of a native chief, named Wiremu Kingi (Wil liam King) to resist its survey and occu pation. The succours demanded have been dispatched. The troops embarked on board the City of Sydney on Tuesday afternoon, and left the same night. "During their march to the place of em barkation-t...
THE HOLY HOMES. CHAPTER XXXII. TEMPORARILY FOILED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
THE HOLY HOMES. (Continued from page 157} CHAPTER XXXII. TEMPORARILY FOILED. MRS. CLARE did not mention to Liddy her fears, but under one excuse or another put off, for some days, her accompanying her in her airings in the gardens. How ever, after some bad weather, a frost that crisped the ground came on; and the man arriving with the chair, the old lady preferred to go out as usual. It was afternoon, and Liddy having assisted the old gentle-women as was now her custom, asked what she should do whilst she, Mrs. Clare, was gone, as Mrs. Stork had not objected to her staying up 3tairs. 4 Why, my dear,' replied the old lady, as she went to the window to look out upon the weather, * there is a great deal of snow coming, and the best thing will be to come with me, as the afternoon is temporarily fine. For you look pale and anxious ; and in an afternoon like this, we shall be more quiet in the gardens than we sometimes are.' So Liddy dressed and accompanied Mrs. Clare. Though sunny and pl...
THE ALSATIAS OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
THE ALSATIAS OF SYDNEY, BY CHAKLES EDWARDS. I BELIEVE it was Sir Walter Scott who first made the terra familiar to our ears, as denoting a locality inhabited by law less characters; and certainly, the in habitants of the beautiful province of Alsatia, on the borders of the Rhine, will not be rejoiced to think of the sudden relationship claimed by their filthy cousins all over the world. Paris has its Alsatia; the dreadful persons who have been seen at the different revolutions issued from the wretched lanes, and cul de sacs-from the Isle Louviers, or from the back streets of the Halles. A military gen tleman, who had witnessed some of the butcheries of the first revolution, told me that they had been enacted by men and women whom he had never seen before. They were the Alsatians, whose work begins when night has set in, but who during the turbulent scenes of a revolu tion, show themselves in open daylight, and enjoyed a horrid Saturnalia of blood and plunder. When a;t the great fire...
