HINTS FOB HOMES. MOSQUITOES. The annoyance proceeding from these little imps of darkness may greatly be lessened by hanging up in your bedroom a wet towel far from your bed-head. Let it be dripping wet when you go to bed. It can drip in the basin on the floor, so that it will remain damp till morning.

THE SOUTH SBA ISLANDS. V.«.«« *U _ T\i_ M_A_. * . « , . .... From the Diary of an American engaged in a whaling expedition. EDITED AY CHARLES EDWARDS. -4 ABOUT thirty-four degrees north of Sydney, and lying under the line, is a vast number of small islands, commonly called the South Sea Islands, or King Mills' Coup. These being at an easy distance from each other, the inhabitants are continually shifting from one to the other. Those islands are principally formed of coral, covered by sea sand, and avara ge not more than twenty feet above the level of the sea ; as there are no Streams of water, wells have been dug in tho coral, and springs have been got at. The cocoanut tree is the only tree that grows spontaneously here, and the fruit, ?with fish, which are abundant, form the food of the natives. These are of a stout and robust appearance, well featured, with long black hair, and of a dark brown complexion, and average from five to six feet in height ; they are of an amicable and pe...

And thus he feared to shed its blood Though fully bent to slay : And wrung by this same murderous mood Was he upon the day Whereon we saw the Flock outrun At the uprising of the sun, And all the lambs in play. , And outward still as the Flock did hie Upon that morning bright, A rushy plat, as he followed .by, Did take the Urchin's evil eye AAA And here, hid from the old man's sight, AB the sheep feed home in the evening gloom, I'll wreak, thought he, my spite !

THE DEED OF BLOOD. With ruthless purpose fixed upon his brow; With lips firm press'd, and savage gleaming eye; One hand upon his trembling victim press'd. The other with a keen and glittering blade; The strong man stood-destruction in his look, Determination, void of pity, in his mien. No hesitation in that iron arm, No touch of mercy in that callous heart. The deadly weapon then was raic'd, One instant in the stilly air was poised; Then lightning-like it fell upon the form That shudd'ring in his grasp inert did lie : One bitter cry of agony uprase, V/J-&V UlVbVi VIj V* -8-; -x And, sad to tell- the fig was killed ! ®.

WOMAN'S DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 May 1860
WOMAN'S DRESS. It is a question open to some debate whether mann«rs have affected dress, or dress manners. No one can deny that the one has always reacted on the other! Stiff elaborate dress is connected with stiff and courtty manners; the high flown compliment, the minuet, the re volta. No knight could have borne arms in defence of a Bloomer, nor could the most determined lover drink a toast out of a Balmorae boot. The hair in long ringlets, or wrapped round a classic brow, speaks of poetry, music, painting, and all that is refined. We imagine these vision ary personages thus clothed, walking on" some pleasant terrace, feeding a peacock, whose graceful plumage harmonises with the costume of its fair owner. A woman is decidedly an imitative animal ; and, when you put her in the wide-awake, the short shirt, the jacket, into the poekets of which she is very apt to thrust her hands, you will generally find her sayings curt, her laugh loud, and her talk not a little inclining to slang**...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CJBSAR. CAssius was so anxious and uneasy about the success of the plot, that he was always thinking of it, and probably his conscience felt much alarm at the dreadful action he was planning to com mit ; for Cffisar observed him look so agitated sometimes, that he said to fcis ' friends one day, '* What think you of Cassias ? I do not like his pale look?.' Another day, when people wished to ( persuade 0«ssar that his friend Antony 1 ww plotting treason, he would not be-! lieve it, but answered, 41 am not afraid of fat and sleek men: it is your pale and Ifffri ones who are planning mischief.' .The night before he w£3 murdered, Ciesar supped with his friend Lepidus, who was not in the secret, and would h$ve defended him from danger if he had known it threatened him.

THE HOLY HOMES. So Bosetta finding her materials, for the youngest Miss Traplark had carried off Liddy's box, inclusive of the little desk, she wrote a letter to John Halton, including one to Mr. Walter. The letter was the most innocent and humble letter in the world, a human cry for pity and aid, a human cry to be better taught, a human cry to be saved from eruelty and from the misunderstanding of those who were both vicious and ignorant. The cry was made to those who, in their several ways, were most worthy of it and its innocent intent! (Continued from page 206) itosetta s address was enelosed for the answer and the good girl coming to take her leave, secretly pinned the letter in the bosom of her grown. ' Don't you fret,' she whispered, ' if an answer isn't here soon, I mayn't be able to bring it right directly. But I've left an old gown here, to have an excuse to come.
