COUSIN GEORGE'S WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 June 1860
COUSIN GEORGE'S WEDDING. -» . * So cousin George ia married at last,' .said Clara Morgan, pushing the news paper towards her sister. Laura took the paper with assumed indifference, but her heightened color betrayed the feeling she was at some pains to correct. ' I wish,' she said (curling her lip scornfully) 'I wish cousin George may be happy.' ' Obi he will, beyond a doubt, at least for the first few weeks,' rejoined Clara; 'all newly married people are, you know.' . I am at a loss to know, girls,' said aunt Martha, smoothing the creases from her black silk apron-' I am quite at a loss to know what you mean by George being married at last ?' 4 Why, aunt Martha, George is of a very proper age to take upon himself the responsibi lities of the married state.' ' Yes, George is,' continued the old lady, with much asperity, ' but the girl ; what can she be fit for ? a perfect child-a doll wife, to sit in the drawing-room, and receive company, and know no more about house keeping than a p...

HOW TO ESCAPE ADULTER ARION S, AND ALSO TO DETECT FRAUDULENT TRADES PEOPLE. Wc are not about to advise the house wife to set up a chemical laboratory, nor to put her hutband to the expense of a compound achromatic microscope. Our instructions will neither burn holes in her dress, stain her mahogany tables, blacken her nails, make smarting chaps in her hands, nor fill her with monomani acal fears that she is being ossified by bone-dust, or that in a little while she will be crystallised all over like an alum-basket. Our apparatus is as fol lows : A band-flour-mill which will cost about .. .. ..£500 A pestle and mortar .. .. 0 10 0 A coffee-mill. 0 3 0 A pepper and spice-mill .. 0 3 0 Meat-cutting-machine .. .. 1 10 0 Scales and weights .. .. .. 0i5 0 Imperials measures .. 0 5 0 £8 6 0 This seems a good deal of money, and anything but a 4 simple* means of'meet ing a great evil.

[?] BLESSINGS OF MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 June 1860
THF BLESSINGS OF MUSIC. That which I have found the best re creation both to my mind and body, whensoever either of them stands in need of it, is music, which exercises at once both my body and soul, especially when I play myself ; for then, methinks the same motion that my hand makes upon the instrument, the instrument makes upon my heart, lt calls in my spirit, composes my thoughts, delights my ear, recreates my mind, and so not only fits me for after business, but fills my heart at the present with pure and useful thoughts; so that when the music sounds the sweetest in my ears, truth commonly flows the clearest into my mind. And hence it is I find my soul is become more harmonious by being accustomed so much to harmony, and so adverse to all manner of discord, that the least jarring sounds, either in notes or words, seem very harsh and unpleasant to me. -Bishop Beveridge.

AMERICAN BULL,-A Tennessee paper announces that * the inauguration of the Governor wasjcelebrated by firing minute guns every half-hour.' ^ AN old lady once complained to her doctor that she could scarcely breathe. * DON'T try, my good soul,' replied the physician ; ' nobody wants you to do it.'

THE MURDER OF THE LAMB: A LEGEND OF THE SHEEP-FOLD. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 2 June 1860
THE MURDER OF THE LAMB: A LEGEND OF THE SHEEP-FOLD. BT CHABLES HARPUR. -? m. i ALL through the forewatch of the night That mournful Mother's wail Did thus reproach his cruel sprite ; Until he thought he also caught Her Lamb's voice in the gale Homeward desolately brought ! And his conscience then like a Fury wrought, And his wilful heart did quail. And so, all in the dead midnight Unto himself he said, I'll fetch it home !-His heart grew bright, For Mercy is ever a spirit of light, And he leaped from his thorny bed But to stand aghast as if stricken fast Into cold stone with dread ! For sees he nert in the lightless room The Victim of his spite ! But never might gleam in the solid gloom A living Lamb so white ! And there is the power of some terrible doom In the glow of its eyes so bright ! Breathless, pulseless, long he stared ! Long, ghostly stiff, h&lt;» stood ! When from the hearth, on a sudden, flared From the covered and smoulding wood, A wild flash of light on that sp...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
I Í CHAPTER II. Strive ; yet I do not promise The prize you dream of to-day, Will not fade when you think to grasp it, And melt in your hand away. ADELAIDE ANNE PKOCTEE. STANLEY determined that he would go on foot to the diggings. Being of a more independent class than the majority of goldseekers he was enabled to start free of any encumbrances, having sent his 4 traps' on to Bathurst under the care of a less enterprising friend. But if he had more of pecuniary means at his disposal that was the one only point in which he exceeded his more sturdy com- panions of the road. A merchant's desk gives no practice to the pedestrian skill of its attendant, nor do the dimmed windows of a merchant's office let in sufficient sunbeams to try, in any great degree, the eyes or brains of those be- hind them. But, for the task which Stanley had undertaken, untiring feet, strong eyes, and a cool head were indis- pensable, and these he had not. After the first two days his strength failed rapidly. Al...
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE SQIRREL PETAURUS. Petaurus sciureus. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. -« THE SQIIUEL PET,,AURUS. Petaurus sciureus. THIS creature belongs to a group of beau- tiful animals, bearing the same relation- ship to the phal angers, that the flying . squirrels do tu ordinary squir rels. They con- stitute the genus Petau rus, divided into three sec- tions according to- certain forms of denti tion. This animal is cha- racterised by a broad expan- sion of skin on either side of the body be tween the fore and hind limbs ; the tail is free, long, and destitute of pre- hensile power ; it forms a balancer to the body in the flying leaps, which these animals take, and perhaps assists them in modifying the direction of their career. The animals are nocternal in their habits, and feed upon fruit, leaves, and insects, k During the day they conceal them- selves in hollow trees, and are said generally to associate in small flocks. Their aerial evolutions, when the shades of evening have roused their activity, are described as being peculiarly g...

A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF PARIS. BT CHAULES ÄDWAHDS. - .H I. THE BOULEVARDS. I 'PABIS is so altered, my dear fellow, that you would not know it again,' said a friend of mine who had just arrived by the mail steamer. * Indeed,' replied I, * but tell me how.' . In every way,' re- turned my friend. But I have one of Anderson s magic rings, which he gave me when in Sydney last, put it on the middle finger of your right hand, turn the stone towards the palm of your hand, and I'll transfer you to Paris, in imagina- tion at least, if not bodily. * Now fancy yourself in my house on the Boulevard St. Martin ; open the win - dow, before you is the Boulevard. It is more homely than the Chaussé d'Antin, and not quite so dull as the Marais, and I'll promise you, you shall see a little of everything. It is seven o'clock in the morning, rather early for the Parisians, and few shops on the Boulevard are open. There are not many Marchands de vin (public houses), or grocers' shops in- this direction.

CHARADES, &c. I. Beneath the bleak and wintry skies, My first was toiling sore ; "With pick and spade he earnest tries, To find the precious ore. My whole from friends was often sent, His lonely hours to cheer ; When pass'd beneath the digger's tent, Through evenings eold and drear. At length, rewarded for his pains, For second starts away ; To share with last his golden gains, A goodly sum they say. II. My whole knelt at my second's feet, And vowed my first for ever : * Oh, will you have me maiden sweet V She laugh'd, and answer'd-'Never.' ni. Upon the mountain's craggy side, Deep clothed in vernal green ; With branches spreading far and wide My beauteous first is seen. While far beneath my second lies, Rich with the golden grain ; Blest with alike, unclouded skies, And genial showers of rain. My whole, a pleasant little place, Not far from Sydney's seen ; If you but irv I'm sure vou'll trace, ine rery spot I mean. CARAOTACÜS.
HINTS FOR HOMES. TO AVOID CATCHING COLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
HINTS FOB HOMES. I TO AVOID CATCHING COLD. Accustom yourself to the use of spong- ing with cold water every morning on first getting out of bed. It should be followed with a good deal of rubbing with a wet towel. It has considerable effect in giving tone to the skin, and maintaining a proper action in it, and thus proves a safeguard to the injurious influence of cold and sudden changes of temperature. Sir Astley Cooper said, * The methods by which I have preserved my own health are-temperance, early rising, and sponging the body every morning with cold water, immediately after getting out of bed: a practice which I have adopted for thirty years without j ever catching cold.' j HOW TO CBBB A COL©. 1 Of all other means of curing colds fast- ing is the most effectual. Let whoever has a cold eat nothing for two days, and his cold will be gone, provided he is not confined in bed, because by taking no carbon in the system by food, but consum- ing that surplus which eaused his disease by b...
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CAESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. ANECDOTES OF JULIUS CÄSAR. IMMEDIATELY after the murder was completed, Brutas and the other conspi- rators paraded through the streets with an air of triumph, calling on everybody to rejoice at the death of a tyrant : hut most people fled from them in horror and dismay, shutting up all the houses and shops to show the destestation of this cruel deed. All men pitied Caesar, who had made himself beloved for his liber- ality and his popular manners; but when it was found that in his will he had left a large sum of money to each of the citizens of Rome, there were no bounds to the rage and grief with which they thought of his tragical death. Antony made a speech over the dead body of Caesar, in which he reminded them of all his great vietories-of all his kind actions-of «ll the good that he had done to Rome-and of the love he had felt to the Roman people : then holding up his cloak, he showed them the places where it had been twenty-three times pierced by the dagge...

The Australian Some Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL THE SYDNEY UNIVERSITY AND THE SYDNEY GRAMMAR SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
% ju Australian gomt Companion, AND BAND OF HOPE JOURNAL -» THE SYDNEY UNIVERSITY AND THE SYDNEY GRAMMAR SCHOOL. IN continuing the article in our last issue upon these two institutionSj we desire to be considered as writing in no hostile spirit to their conductors. We look upon them as among the most valuable gifts the Government has ever bestowed upon the colony. Our only anxiety is that they should accomplish all the good they may easily be fitted to perform. We promised, before concluding our remarks on the University, to notice its scale of fees. Relatively to the sums paid in this colony for preparatory educa- tion, of course the fees in our University will not seem large. But as the University is ' sui generis/ any such comparison involves a fallacy which destroys the arguments based upon it. The University doing its proper work can, in no sense, be looked upon as a rival of other educational establishments. If its educational standard of admission were sufficiently raised, th...

THIEVES! THIEVES! THIEVES! (From the Empire June 5th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
THIEVES! THIEVES! THIEVES! (From the Empire June 5 tb.) -"» FELLOW CITIZENS,-Look well to your locks, bolts, and bars, and request your servants not to go to sleep during your absence From home, for there are plenty of expert thieves prowling about the city, as the frequent robberies noted in our daily papers fully certify. During the temporary absence of my family from home on Saturday last, some nimble individual eluded the vigilance of my faithful servant, and, by most mysteri- ous means, extracted from my daughter's bedroom, a small casket, containing all her little stock of trinkets and treasures, to the value of about £30, with which he decamped without leaving the slightest clue to his identity or his whereabouts. I feel it my duty to give you this caution to prevent, if possible, your being simi- larly victimised. But there is another class of thieves also alarmingly prevalent in Sydney, who are not so easily guarded against, whilst they are nine times more dangerous than th...
NEW THEORY OF CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
NEW THEORY OF CHOLERA. A supposed discovery in physiological science is making a great sensation in Germany at present. Dr. Martin Kouis berger has occupied himself during his thirty-five years' in the East, in the al- most exclusive study of that frightful dis- ease, cholera, and has arrived at the con- viction that it is occasioned hy the ab sorbtion of atmospheric animalcuse in- visible to the naked eye, and inhaled into the lungs, whence they distribute themselves throughout the whole system corrupting the blood, and poisoning the fountains of life. Dr. Martin Konis berger accordingly combats the enemy with quassia, known to he fatal to insect life, and administers the remedy under the form of vaccination, which arrests on the instant the decomposition of the blood, and the patient is cured as if by a miracle. It appears that during the raging of the disease at Mecklenberg, the docter exerted his powers with the most brilliant success. The account of his labours at Hamburg has n...

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860
THE HOLY HOM E â . [Continued trom page 251) . AT the dead of night when all had been for some time still, Miss Wayland j was awakened from her sleep, by heavy j t I and continuous knocking at the outer door. Rising in great alarm, for the ' knocks were peremptory and incessant, she threw something on her shoulders, and hastened to the window, opened it, and saw not only a coach at the outer gate, but three men standing outside the porch below. She enquired what they wanted. One stepping a little back, and raising his umbrella, so as to show a man of gentlemanly exterior, said in a low voice, that he was the bearer of bad tidings, which he would communicate, if she would come down stairs and let him in ; Miss Wayland's suspicions were aroused at this, and she said that whatever they were, they must ba spoken there. * Oh you have no need of fear of any sort,' replied the man, c my name is Mr. Roberts, I ara an Oxford apothecary, your maid servant knows me well.
