RUSSELL, the well known Times' Correspondent has pnblished an ex cellent work entitled ' My Diary in India' in which he gives an account of his adventures The book has had a large sale in Engand and is generally weil spoken of by the press. We now give a sample of its style: . There was a confused clamour of shrieks and shouting iu my ears. My dooly was raised from the ground and then let fall violently. I heard my bearers shouting 4 Sowar, sowar!' I saw them flying with terror in their faces. All the camp followers, in wild confusion, were rushing for the road.

DR. CUMMINGS ON THE 'SIGNS OF THE TIMES.' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 May 1860

DR. CUMMING S ON THE 'SIGNS OF THE TIMES/ » Du. Cummistgs has been stating hia opinion at Leeds respecting the great events which, according to his interpre tation of the Book of Daniel and the Apocalvpse, are looming in the future. He said the year 1867 seemed to end 6000 vears of the world's history, and from the earliest periods onward it liad been the almost universal belief that the six days of creation were tyyical of those 6000 vears, and that the seventh day of creation, or the Sabbath, was typical of the millennial rest of 1000 years. But they would say that, supposing this were so, they were at this moment 140 rears short of the 6000. It was a remarkable fact, however, that the ablest chronolo gists, irrespective of all prophetic theories, had shown that a mistake of upwords of 100 years had been made in calculating the chronology of the world, I and that the year 1860 of the Christian era began not from the year 4004 of the world's history, but in the year 4138 and that t...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY, WHITE IBIS. 7hreskiornis Strictipennis.'-GOD i.n. THIS very beautiful bird frequents the wet hollows of flal country, the bank# of rivers, lagoons, &c., wading knee deep among the rushes and green herbage, in search of frogs, newts, and insects, upon which it feeds; when satiated it flies to the bare branches of the large gum trees bordering the feed ing plaoe, and is so watchful that it cannot be approached within gun shot without extreme caution. It is seldom seen in inhabited parts of Australia ; but in 1839 after the severe draught, it vigited the Liverpool Plains in great numbers. The natives of the places "where it is seen, state that sometimes 1 geveral seasons will pass, and ijot one visit its haunts, it Is therefore con jectured, that it retires into some un known part of the interior.' i Head and upper part of the neck, bare, and, with' the bi.11, a deep slaty black; back of the head and neck crossed by ten narrow distinct bands of rose ...

COLONIAL NEWS. Thb Fass Courier says : the weather fcas lately been most genial-sunshiny days, with bright clear nights, and slightly frosty mornings. The season has been first rate for ploughing and sowing, and an unusually great amount of land has been sown with wheat,-At Kiandra gold fields, the cold weather has set in, and numbers hare left for the winter, only about 1500 are now on the ground.-The last dread sentence of the law was carried into effect on the Bth instant; within the walls of Goulburn gaol, upon the persons of Ellen Monks and Frederick Clark, for the crime of murder. Ellen Monks was forty years of age, and was a native of Cork. She lived an unhappy life with her husband, and there is no doubt the primary cause of the crime for which she has now suffered is to be found in the habits of drunkenness in which her husband in dulged. Frederick Clark was twenty eight years of age only. He was a fine young man, of great strength, a car penter, and very skilful at his tra...

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN OUR LAST. 108.-Umbrellas are of Eastern origin. On an ancient sculpture at Persepolis, in Persia, supposed to be coeval with Alexander the Great, a sovereign is represented attended by two servants, one of whom holds an umbrella over the head of the royal personage. It was first introduced into Italy, where the name umbrella, which means a * little shade,' arose. That remarkable man, Jonas Hanway, first carried one in England, in 1750. JOHN COLLINS, Richmond. Umbrellas are of Asiatic origin. The Queen of George the Third introduced them first into Ene J. BIBB, Junr. land in the year 1775.

THE HEART OF ICE IN THE REGIONS OF SNOW. From the Diary of a returned Digger. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 May 1860

THE HEART OF ICE IN THE REGIONS OP SNOW. From the Diary of a returned Digger. BY CHARLES EDWARDS. THE sun was setting on the grassy ranges of the Australian Alps, studded with little white tents; the stores were closing after a profitable day's work; diggers, successful or disappointed, were returning to their canvass dwellings; the lamps were lit Hp, and touters placed in readiness at the entrances to the circus, the dancing saloons, and the spar ring booths; the serenaders were begin ning to blacken their faces, and try new local songs; the lights at the tippling booths and gambling establishments, appeared through the haze like ignus futuii, to mislead the unwary; the billy j was slung in the digger's tent, the hard ; damper produced, steaks and chops were hissing in the pan, and the weary sons of t toil sat down to partake of their evening meal. Night had set in, the air was sharp and bracing, winter was approach ing, and to remain in these inhospitable regions, during the winte...

A HINT TO DISTRESSED UNCLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 May 1860

A HINT TO DISTRESSED UNCLES. Our good friend Avunculus was en trusted with the care of a child for a couple of hours, He rode-a-cock-hors® to Banbury Cross ; he ran up the hill with Jack and Jill; he expiated merrily on the agricultural distress of Little Bo peep, who had lost all his sheep ; and ate bread and butter an infinity of times with Master Tom Tucker. He played at coach-and-horses: he crowed, and grunted, and brayed, with a fidelity worthy of Herr Yon Joel; and laid bare all his wealth of nursery lore. His young charge , was in eestacies; it laughed, clapped its hands, opened its eyes and ears eagerly for more. The success was undoubted; but alas ! what was fun to the young child was fatigue to the elderly uncle-his strength and memory had alike oome to an end, there was still a big hour left for romping and Cradling. Should he pause but for five minutes, he knew too well the fatality that must ensue. The child would certainly cry !- probably howl!- per-, haps kick! and th...

The Australian Home Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL SACRED SLAUGHTER HOUSES AND PLACES, OR CHURCHES AND CEMETRIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 May 1860

^Hsfraliait Jflmt Compnioii, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL SACRED SLAUGHTER HOUSES AND PLACES, OR CHURCHES AND CEMETRIES. FROM the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, who perished between the altar and the temple, it appears that the sanctuary of the Lord has been a place of slaughter ; there it was that Joab was slain, holding on by the horns of the altar; and without violence the subtle gas of 36,000 tons of human remains, buried within our London Churches-'rank masses of corrupting matter'-are now slaying many of the unconscious worshippers within. Many thousand coffins lie in the vaults, so that the living worship kneeling on the dead, with the slight partition of a thin slab between them ; while thousands of cubic feet of churchyard mould-' rank and fetid matter'-are actually lifted up above the streets, sending out noxious 'eftluviae through the ventilations of these buildings, into the (outer air,' to destroy health, and shorten life. The t leaden coffins have become corrod...

THE TOWN OF KIANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 19 May 1860

THE TOWN OF KIANDKA. As a specimen of the wretched houses of the township of Kiandra, a description of a building will suffice, part oi which is occupied by the Bank of New South Wales. An irregular framework of branches covered with coarse and rotten looking canvass, enclosing a space of ground not more than 30 feet in length, comprises the bank premises, the stole of an auctioneer, and a grcg shanty. The building is lowly enough ia its height as Well as in its character, as, at the higher side of it a tallish man can hardly stand upright, The compartments occupied by the three different businesses are of equal dimensions, and access can be had from one to the other by the simple act of lifting a flap of canvass, The fortu nate digger, having disposed of his golden treasure at the one end, may pur - chase a ham ov a bushel of oats in the centre aparmtfnt, and wash the cobweb3 from his thoat with any amout of nob biers at the other end. The buildings of the larger storekeepers are n...

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 June 1860

[ -V I CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. THE whole senate stood up when Osar entered, and it was the proudest moment of his life when he saw those who were considered greatest and noblest in the world bowing before him, awd trying to do him honor. Antony was one of the few who really loved Csesar, therefore many of the conspirators wished to mur der him also ; but Brutus was anxious to cause as little bloodshed as possible, so he would not consent ; but as Antony was a very strong man, and might perhaps try to defend Caesar, he was de tained at the door by a person who pretended he had something of con sequence to tell him, and made as long a story as he possibly could. { The conspirators were much alarmed by one of the senators, who passed j Brutus, and whispered in his ear that he knew the whole plan. Soon afterwards this person was observed talking ear nestly to Cassar, and not a doubt remained that be was betraying the whole secret ; so Cassius and some of the ot...

HINTS FOR HOMES. HONEY MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 June 1860

HINTS FOB HOMES. HONEY MATTERS. Have a supply of change in band shillings, sixpences, half-pence. This will obviate the various inconveniences of keeping people at the door, sending out at unreasonable times, and running or calling after any inmates in the house, supposed to be better provided with 4 tho needful.' The tradespeople with whom you regularly deal will always give you extra change, when you are making purchases or paying bills ; while those to whom you apply for it, on a sudden emergency, may neither be willing nor able to do so. Some housekeepers object to this arrangement, that, * as soon as five pounds notes or sovereigns are changed, they always seems to go, with out their understanding how ;' but to such persons I would humbly intimate, that is rather the fault of their not getting understanding, than any inevi table consequence of getting change. The fact is, that it Í3 the necessity of parting with your money which obliges you to get the large piece changed, and n...

DR. WOOLLEY'S LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 June 1860

DR. WOOLLEY'S LECTURE. ON the 1st. of May, Dr. Woolley de livered a very eloquent lecture at the School of Arts, upon the social use of such institutions. The lecturer touched in his usual masterly manner upon the various points of his important subject. The following extract we present for our readers careful perusal. 41 never was a lady's man : and my age and profession sufficiently vindicate me from the suspicion of impertinent flattery or unmeaning jesting. I have, therefore, no faar in saying that I believe the most formidable amongst our social dangers is the increasing separation of our young men from the companion ship of pure and refined women. Until we can strike this evil to the heart, all efforts are vain to destroy intemperance and immorality. So far as we even in directly countenance it, we are guilty of the moral and spiritual death of those whom we profess to aid. For myself, I confess that I entertain a daily grown ing misgiving with respect to clubs and to all othe...

THE ELOQUENCE OE GRIEF-THE RAVAGES OF RUM. _ ... . . . i _A. THE following shows in the most strik ing light the awful responsibility of those who, by their example, and countenance encourage the drinking usages connected with the traffic in intoxicating liquors : - The inhabitants of a thriving town of Pennsylvania having assembled, as was their custom, to decide what number (if any) of spirit licenses the town should petition from the County Court, there was a very full attendance. One of the magistrates presided, and upon the plat form were seated, among others, the pastor of the village, one of his deacons, and the physician. After the meeting had been called to order, one of the most respectable citi zens of the borough rose, and after a short speech, moved that the meeting petition for the usual number of licences for the ensuing year. He thought it was not best to get up an excitement by refusing to grant licenses. They had better license good men, and let them «ell. The prop...
