AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTO[?] BLACK SWAN. Cygnus Atratus. Mul-go.—ABORI[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL III & T / W&A -- ; :V&lt;? v V t/> \ L) ?' ^ ^ - BLACK SWAN. 1 ~-r^ Cygnut Atratv*. Mul-go.-Aaowivm. BLACK SWANS were unknown, and deemed fabulous until in 1726, when two were taken from the Western Coast to Batavia. Captain Cook observed tliem on many parts of the Coast. T&ey have never been found out of Australia, but appear to exist in all the Strath and in the Islands of Bass's |&raits, and on the Southern portion of , Sksmania. Wherever there are rivers, lagoons, or large water holes, they are found in vast flocks of many hundreds together, particularly on those arms of the sea, which after passing the beach line of the coast, expand into large sheets of | shallow water, on which the birds are seldom disturbed by boisterous winds,. or intruders. In many parts where they were formerly numerous, they have now be come unknown, as the colonists advance, they retreat, but in many parts they are as numerous as ever, and wi...
PET PERENNIALS—NO. IX. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
PUT PERENNIALS - No. IX. BY PATTY PARSLEY. -J CHAPTER I. .Faint as an autumn leaf Trembling to part; So, in that moment brief. Trembled my heart! Nothing I but thee, Nothing could find; Vision had fled frdta. me, Lingering behind I SWAIN. 4 Yes, I am an old man, Menie ; an old and a lonely one in my age. Were it not for you, darling, there would be none to caress my gray hairs. Tell yo'i a tale of my youth, little one, a tale of my youth? There are but few connected with it, and yet-I do remember one. It is a bitter tale, a weary one , it will tire out your wistful eyes, my golden tressed pet, but it will teach you that all is not joy upon earth, and that no earthly sorrow is all woe. ' I was a young man when I first got a living, young, and poor enough. I was proud too ; of necessity I was nearly in the position of those apostles who went forth taking neither two coats nor shoes, nor gold, nor silver, nor brass in their purses. But I strove hard to hide my poverty ; harder, perhaps...
MAKE A BEGINNING! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
MAKE A BEGINNING! KEMEMBER, in all things, that if you do not begin, you will never come to an end. The first weed «pulled up in the garden, the first seed set in the ground, the first shilling put in the savings' bank, and the first mile travelled on a journey, are all important-things; they make a beginning, and thereby a hope, a pledge, a promise, an assurance, that you are in earnest with what you have undertaken. How many a poor, idle, e/ring, hesitating outcast is now creep ing and crawling his way through the woMwho-might have held up his head g&t prospered, if, instead of putting off ^resolutions of amendment and indus try,- he had only made a beginning. GODWIN.
WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 21 April 1860
WOMAN. GOD'S best, most precious gift to man, when lovely and pure as virgin snow-a companion in health-a solace in woe a well spring of joy, which fills his heart with love to overflowing, She is a bril liant star, whose lustre is of virtue's glow-a sacred gift of honor to be worn upon his breast. Oh! prize the sacred boon, and in virtue's name shield the beautiful star, lest the foul breath of slander should touch and tarnish it for ever ; for no art can restore its lustre when once dimmed $ and it would then be valueless to you, even unto scorn. You would indignantly snatch it from the throne upon which you have placed it, and dash it under foot-crush out its life-or cast it for ever away, down into the dark, unfathom able depths of endless despair, where it will quiver in its agony of pitiless wretchedness, or, obscured from the joy of love-beaming eyes, with a conscious ness of its irreparable disgrace, grieve and die away. . A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband;' but sho...
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. Chewton, Victoria, April 18, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
I CORRESPONDENCE. Ib the Editor of the Australian Home Companion. Chewton, Victoria, April 18,1860. Sm,-In reply to question, No. 103, permit me to say that the East India Company originated in the desire of our ancestors to share in the lucra tive trade with India. In A. D. 1600, a Charter of Incorporation granted the exclusive right of trading to India to the . Governors and Company of Merchants of London trading to the East Indies.' Attempts to open this trade resulted in the formation of the ' Eng lish Company,' in 1698. The rivalry of the two companies being hurtful to the interests of both, a fresh charter, in 1702, incorporated them as ' The United Company of Merchants trading to the East Indie? ;' thus forming the famous East India j Company. I -Yours, &c, JAMES GILBERTSON. ggf* Those of our readers who can supply in formation in answer to the Questions asked from time to titne, are kindly requested to do so.
ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
ART AND SCIENCE. A BEC it NT invention has been patented in America, for printing photographic pictures on wood prepared for engraving, thus saving the time and expense of drawing the subject. AN application of the electrotype process, promises to reduce the cost of first class engravings. Engraved copper plates although very expensive, are soft and soon wear in printing, by this invention, the plate is coated with steel after being engraved, which coating can be removed as often as necessary ; thus there is no limit to the number of impressions that can be taken, and superior engravings will come within the means of thousands, who now go without them. NON-COMBUSTIBILITY OF CBINOLINE. At a recent meeting of the Pharma ceutical Society in George street Hall, Dr. Stevenson Macadam exhibited a crinoline dress, one half of which had been immersed in a solution of sulphate of ammonia, in order to test its non combustibility. On a light having been applied to the erinoline, the part of it...

-t TEMPERANCE ITEMS. ALLIANCE. OD Thursday evening, the 26th April, Mr, J. Kirby gave a lecture upon the 'Philosophy of Intemperance;' and in a series of excellent remarks, went on to show that the intemperance of the com munity was entirely owing to the. beverage use of intoxicating liquors, by , beings so liable to temptation as we are ! at present constituted. A tolerably ' good audience testified frequent approval. I of the sentiments advanced. MKLBOÜBKK. Mr. Michie, ia the Melbourne Parlia ment, brought io a Bill 1 To amend the Laws relating to the Sale of Fer mented and Spirituous Liquors by Wholesale Dealers.' He states that it would tend to the comfort and morality of the working classes and discourage the excessive drinking of liquors away from their homes if persons were per mitted to purchase such liquors from spirit merchants and other wholesale dealers in quantities not less than one bottle at a time provided that such liquors be not drank upon the premisas of the vendo...
CHARADES, &C. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
CHARADES, &c. I. Deep in the shady woods, Hy first is often heard ; And in it you will recognize. The language of a bird. My next the driver shouts, To urge his horse along ; My whole is near where Ocean sings, Its nerer-ceasing song. E. K. II. Ky first will clothe the barren rock, In garb of richest green ; And always tends, where'er it grows, To beautify the scene. The gust of wind, that fiercely wakes. My third from placid rest, Is like the sudden fit of wrath That sweeps my second's breast; My whole-a. sweet romantic spot, The trouble will repay ; Should you to it a visit make, Some sunny holiday. £. K. III. In the wilds of Australia my first may be seen, Denoting that man has a residence there : My second affords to the vessel, I ween, A home till the winds and the breezes are fair. When sunshine from heaven is gilding my whole, How pleasand it is o'er its bosom to glide ; To watch the white billows as shoreward they roll, And the abb and the flow of the murm'ring tide,...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
-w CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ? ANECDOTES OP JULIUS CJSSAB, THE Roman people were so angry at the friends of Caesar for wishing to elect hinTking, that many of those who had made the proposal where hurried to prison ; and when the criminals were led away, some of the spectators applauded the officers of justice, saying that they were 'like Brutus/ The meaning of this was, that Junius Brutus, who had lived a very long time before, had in those days killed Tarquin, because he had called himself the king of Rome. Kow, there was a person called Brutus who lived in the days of Caesar, and who is supposed to be decended from Junius Brutus*, he was ono of the most virtuous men then living, and always acted ac cording to that which appeared to be his duty ; though it would be seen how sadly he was mistaken in what he thought it right to do, because he did not know that j .rule of Scripture which tells us, we must not do evil that good may come. Brutus loved Casar, but he loved bli country still ...

CJjt Australian jome Compnißit, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL -? ? DWELLINGS OF THE POOR IN SYDNEY. THE Report oí the Select Committee of the Legislative Assembly appointe^ to take evidence about the condition of the working classes in the Metropolis, have published their report, and a startling document it is, laying open a mass of physical and moral disease which our readers would hardly have expected to exist in a city where the beauties of nature, and a brilliant southern clime are so favourable to the largest amount of health and comfort. In the short space of a lifetime we have introduced the luxuries and refinements of European society, and within this short space we have reproduced here all the criminal abnormities which have grown up through centuries of ignorance, pestilence, arbitrary power, and civil war in the cities of the Old World. We have now before us one of the most graphic pictures drawn by a physician, in London, of some portion of Field Lane, and place it side by si...

ETIQUETTE AND FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
ETIQUETTE AND FASHION. IN continuing our remarks upon thil subject, we wish particularly to dwell upon the necessity of young people ac quiring in early life those habita of care for others' comfort, and attention to duty instead of appearance, which ii too often the cese. If the leaton of youth passes away without habits of consideration being acquired ; they will come tardily and with little grace in after life. Be, then, kind, thoughtful, and courteous to your domestics ; win their love, and they will be faithful, and serve you far better than if used with coldness and distrust Let the aged bear a large share of your love and sympathy, and you will appear to others far more ladylike in attending to the comfort of an aged relative, than figuring in the haunts of fashion to dis play your attire. As regards dress, let not the fashion book be your guide, un aided by sound sense and application to circumstances. The dresses generally described there are those of brides iu the wealthie...
L—'S REFLECTIONS ON THE DEATH OF HER FAVORITE RABBIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
L--'S REFLECTIONS ON THE DEATH OF HER FAVORITE RABBIT/ Cruel death, with his old-fashioned merciless habit, Has laid his cold hand on my poor little rabbit ; ? Last night he was living, and full of his /un ; This morning he's dead, and his gambols are done. I say he-perhaps I'm wrong-for I really don't know, To which sex it belonged-whether buck or a doe ; But no matter now-in the grave 'twill soon lay, And the worms on it's fine furry jacket will play. - By the death of my rabbit a lesson 1 learn, That I too must die, and't may soon be my turn ; Though now in life's sunny and bright vernal bloom, I know not how soon death's dread summons may come. Oh, may I find grace so to live day by day, For its call quite prepared, let it come when it may. Darlinghurst. AQUA.
THE LATE AWFUL CATASTROPHE, IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
THE LATE AWFUL CATASTROPHE, IN AMERICA. At the Penberton mill, Lawrence, Massachusets, on the 10th January last, a fearful accident occured. It waa five stories high, and 960 operatives were . employed. The building fell-the dif ferent parts almost simultaneously-at five minutes before five o'clock. A por tion of the; operatives had left, but it is probable that six hundred (the minimum calculation) were in the building at the time. The news of the disaster went like an electrio shoek over the city, and people commenced running to the spot. The Washington Mills were entlrsly deserted and others in the city poured forth in excited throngs. Those on tbs street rushed to the place, stores deserted, and houses left unprotected, and almost the whole population gathered around toa spot. Those who could work plied hand and tools briskly, all with heavy hearts, and spirits saddened by the frantic eries of some for help, the groans of the dying, and the disfigured corpses of those who had be...
HOW CAPTAIN HARRISON WAS DROWNED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
HOW CAPTAIN HARRISON WAS DROWNED. - The 4 Great Eastern' lay at the doeks at Southampton. Captain Harrison during her stay was residing with his wife and family on the opposite side of water. The captain's gig, under the command of Ogden, the captain's coxswain, and a picked crew, used to come over from the vessel every morning, to fetch the cap tain. On Saturday, Jan. 21, it came over as usual: the weather was threatening. Captain Lay, the chief purser, and his son, thirteen years of age, were in the boat; and after taking on board Captain Harrison, and Dr. Watson, the surgeon of the 4 Great Eastern,' they started for Southampton; before they left Hythe (where the captain resided) the wind had risen to a gale, and the sea was very rough. 4 According to Dr. Watson's statement, they stood rapidly across the Solent with the wind fair on the starboard tack. Captain Harrison sat in the stern sheets at the helm, Dr. Watson and Captain Lay and son were on the windward side. The crew, with...
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. MEMBRANACEUS DUCK. Malacorhynchus Membranceus. SW[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 5 May 1860
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL H I ft T W^/^^ - » MEMBRANACEÜS DUCK. Malacorhynchu» Mtmbranaceut, SWA^ÍÍ THIS bird, which is by no means common, is found in the south, and also occasionally visits Tasmania, although at uncertain intervals. Its favourite haunts are shallow fresh water lagoons ; it is generally during the rainy season, when the flats and hollows are temporarily , filled with water, giving life to myriads of the lower animals, that it may be looked for. As it has never been seen out of Australia, or even on the Northern Coast, it no doubt exists in large numbers in the interior. No one of the duck tribe presents a more graceful appearance than this bird, which is generally seen in small companies of from six to twenty in number, swim ming over the placid lagoons, and betraying* so little fear, and shyness at the approach of man, as to present a singular contrast to other members of the family. Its peculiarly light plumage renders' it very buoyant on the water; its flight is very p...

Can it be that in this age of Bible societies it is necessary to present the very existence of woe to invite, not to extraordinary effort, but to simple duty? If it be so, then ere long will be. a ntl« merous class-those who vegetate in this district, if unrooted, who will regard crime as the title of admission to what in comparison with those they have, ara well appointed and wholesome dwellings. Unhappily the standard of morality ia low enough among the poorer classes; and so it must continue while every con« dition of their existence lends to brutalize them and to efface every moral sentiment.
