ART AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860

ABT AND SCIENCE. COMBUSTIBLES MADE FIREPROOF.-A wonderful discovery is described in the French papers, of which a Monsieur Cateron is the inventor it is said, of a new kind of paint, which renders every- thing towhioh it is applied fireproof. In presence of the Emperor and the Empress, a series of experiments to test the value of this invention have been made. Fire was applied to some ladies' dresses, but (without any effect, thus proving that articles of the slightest texture may be rendered non-combustible. An attempt was afterwards made to set fire, by means of torches, to the tent of a superior officer, completely fitted up with muslin eu»tains to the bed, &c, hut without effect, A hut built with wood and thatched with straw was operated upon, but the half to which the new invention had been applied, re- mained uninjured. A small theatre, with all the geenery, &c, prepared with the composition, resisted every attempt to set fire to it. RAILWAY SIGNALS.-A new sign...

THE AUSTRALIAN EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860

THE AUSTRALIAN EMIGRANTS. -« How dazzling the sunbeams awoke on the spray, When Australia first rose in the distance away, As welcome to us on the deck of the bark, As the dove to the vision of those in the ark : What fairylike fancies appear'd to the view As nearer and nearer the haven we drew "What castles were built and rebuilt in the brain,, To totter and crumble to nothing again. We had roam'd o'er the ocean-had traversed a path, Where the tempest surrounded and shriek'd in its wrath : Alike we had roll'd in the hurricane's breath, And slumber'd on waters as silent as death : "We had watcja'd the Day breaking each morn on the main, And had seen it sink down in the billows again ; For week after week, till dishearten'd, we thought An age would elapse, ere we enter'd the port. How often while ploughing the ' watery waste,' Our thoughts-from the Future have turn'd to the Past ; How often our bosoms have heav'd withregret ; . For faces and scenes we could never forget : For we'd se...

1 NOTICIES. WK doubt not that many of our readers will deeply sympatliwe with us in our Tegrets at bear- ing that our old friend and contributor, Mr. J. R. Houlding, has been oompelled to call his creditors together. We could have earnestly wished that a different fate had awaited one who has so con- stantly endeavoured to assist others. Our own obligations to him have been very great, for the deep interest he has ever taken in our journal, being one of its earliest and staunchest friends, and we have to acknowledge his constant readi- ness to help us in every possible way. We havo had many opportunities, during several years past, of observing his acts of liberality and kind- ness, and we are sorry to hear that among those who are under the gt eatest obligations to him, are some who have returned his kindness with the deepest ingratitude and wrong. We are glad to find that his liabilities, which are small, are ex- ceeded by his assets, and that no pecuniary loss is likely to accrue...

THE HORSE.—ITS HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860

THE HORS E.-I TS HISTORY. WH propose with your permission, Mr. Editor, giving a brief account of that noble animal, the horse. Let us glance at his general history, then the various breeds ; then his use and abuse ; then his shape ; as condition of health; and then finish with some practical remarks to propietors, and purchasers, avoiding as far as possible, all technicalities; and when they must occur, your readers may pardon the explanation of them, for be it remembered that some benefit may accrue from these familier expressions, they being such as horsemen do understand and use. Having then promised a popular essay, and one which, with your permission we may extend over many numbers, it is to be hoped your readers may feel induced to spend a few moments' study. Indeed such a result may in some measure be expected, the subject matter being our familiar friend the horse. ?

CHAPTER XXXV. WITHERED AND DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860

CHAPTER XXXV. i WITHERED AND DEAD. "WHILST in England the spring was late, though the month was April leading into May, the forests in the central provinces of France were richly clothed in foliage. Already the beech and chesnut trees cast down solemn shadows on leagues and leagues of solitary forest land ; already in open glades and on upland heights a profusion of vernal flowers coloured the landscapes and filled the air with per- fume ; and the rivulets and little springs sparkle in the sun, or murmur through the sylvan shadows. Amidst these forests, and where the river Loire rolls swiftly to the town of Nevers, the sun began to set on a solitary chateau a hunting seat known as Castle St. Jonan. Long uninhabited except by the paysan and his wife who kept it for the owner, long to let furnished and ready for the use of any one who might like the wild solitudes of th» Nevers during the heats of summer, it had been hired, in the very earliest flush of spring, for the use of an Engli...

A LADY FREEMASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860

A LADY FREEMASON. -t The Hon. Elizabeth St. Legerwas the only female who was ever initiated into the ancient and hononrable mystery of Freemasonary. How she obtained this honour we will lay befoie our readers, premising that our informa- tion is derived from the best sources : Lord Doneraile, Miss St Leger's father, a very zealous mason, held a warrant and occasionally opened lodge at Don- eraile House, his sons and some intimate friends assisting; and it is said that never were masonic duties more rigidly performed than by the brethren of No. 150, the number of their warrant. It appears that, previously to the initiation ©f a gentleman to the first steps of masonry, Miss St. Leger who was a young girl, happened to be in an apart * ment adjoining the room generally used as a lodge-room, but whether the young lady was there by design or accident, we cannot confidently state. This room at the time was undergoing some alteration; amongst other things, the wall was con- siderably reduce...

PET PERENNINAL S.-No X . BY PATTY PARSLEY. -i CHAPTER I. God asks not what, but whence thy work is : From the fruit He turns His eye away, To prove the utmost root. TRENCH. AT the door of a merchant's office in George street, stood two young men, con- versing in low, and apparently, from their gestures, very earnest tones. Assuming the time-honored privileges of Scrible rius-to hear that which to other ears is inaudible, we overheard the converration, and report it for the benefit of our readers. It was romantic enough, if it be admitted that real life can pioduce romance-instinct with the romane of common sense. ' I tell you I will go, Arnold ;' said j one, ' there is no use in wasting your I eloquence upon me for I am determined -go I will.' » * A wilful man must have his way, Stanley,' was the answer, 4 but beware ! you are standing with hands stretched out to break with a golden mallet throngh the perfect table of God's command.' Stanley laughed ; 'It is your profes- sion, or it...

LOOK OUT FOR THE WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 16 June 1860

LOOK OUT FOR THE WOMEN. Young man, keep your eyes open wjien you are after the women. If you bite at the naked hook you are green. Is a pretty dress or form so attractive ; or a pretty face even? Flounces, boy, areno sort of consequence. A pretty face will grow old. Paint will wash off. The sweet smile of the flirt will give way to the scowl of the termagant. Another and a far different being will take the place of the lovely goddness who smiles and eates your sugar-candy. The coquette will shine in the kitchen corner, and with the once sparkling eye and beaming countenance will look daggers *tyou> Beware ! Keep your eye open, boy. when you are after the women. If the dear is cross and seolds at her mother in the back rooin, you may be sure yon will get particular rubs ail over the house. Ifshe blushes when found at domestic duties, be sure she is of the dishrag aristocracy-little breeding, and a great deal less sense. If you marry a girl who knows nothing but to commit woman sla...

A YANKEE ADVOCATE. T BE following plea of a spread-eagle lawyer needs no comment:-'Gentlemen of the jury-The Scripture saith, 'Thou shalt not kill!' Now if you hang my client you transgress the command as slick as greese, and as plump as a goose egg in a loafer's face. Gentlemen, mur der is murder whether committed by twelve jurymen 01 an humble individual like my client having killed a man, but is that any reason why yoti should do so ? No such thing, gentlemen; you may bring the prisoner in guilty; the hang man may do his duty, but that will not exonerate you! No such thing. In that you will be murderers. Who among you is prepared for the brand of Gain to be stamped upon his brow to-day ? Who, freeman-who in this land of liberty and light ? Gentlemen, I abjure you, by the manumitted ghosts of temporal society, to do no murder. I abjure you for the love you have for the seculent and continental gusto of our native pumpkin, to do no murder ! I abjure you by the stars set in the flyi...

HINTS TO BUSH TRAVELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

HINTS TO BUSH TRAVELLERS. IN long journies over hilly ground, keep the highest part of the ranges till you arrive at dividing vallies or see the plain beneath^ as diversing to gullies on either side is almost sure to cause error. 2. In crossing a plain, keep your eye along the path, and more particularly when you come to a break or valley, look well over what part of the opposite rise the footpath tends, and steer straight for the same as the traveller is apt to diverse from the path, unless this be kept in view, when he descends amongst the rushes or long grass which abound in the low ground, and where consequently the path is not distinct. 3. At the first starting these is material importance in the right road, in cases where two tracks strike off in nearly the same direction, as a slight divergence at the outset may lead far astray. There fore be particular in making enquiries at this stage of the journey. 4. Avoid cattle or pig tracks, unless there be also many footprints; horse...

Last Friday I went over to the school just to see how Nancy was getting along, and I sees things I didn't like by no means. The school master was larnin her things intirely out uv the line uv eddycation, an as I think improper. I sat for a while in the school house, and heered them say ther lesson. They was a spellin, and I thot spelled quit© exceedingly. Then cum Nancy's turn to say her lesson. She did it very spry. I yras shot, an determined she should lave that school. I have heered that gramer was an uncommon fine study, but I don't wan't any more gramer about my house. The lesson that Nancy sed was nothing but the foolishest kind uv talk-the ridiclest luv talk you ever seed. She got up, and the first word she sed was ' I love.'
