NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

NOTI'CES. TJSCTTJRBS TO WORKING MEN.-The fourth of a series of lectures to the working classes was de livered on Sunday afternoon, by the Rev. Mr. Waters, at the Temperance Hall. The subject selected was-'Man and his Mater.' The rev. gentleman, after some introductory observations, adverted to the estrangement of man from his Maker, which he attributed, amongst other causes, to ignorance, love of the world, pride, predjudice, and unbelief; and proceeded to dwell on and apply the in vital! ens to reconciliation which man's Maker Iras continually offering him by His word, His servants, His mercies, and His visitations, refer ing under the latter division to the frequent Providential warnings given in this city during the Hist few weeks. The service was commenced and dosed with usual religious exercises. 1 he attend ant was not quiet so numerous as on previous occasions. ST.

WHAT DIVERS MEET WITH UNDER WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

WHAT DIVERS MEET WITH UNDER WATER. WHEN the vessel has settled down in a sandy bottom, it is preserved for many months from breaking up ; and its posi tion may he much the same as it would be when floating in calm water, if it be not tilted over by any under-current drifts. The light, of course, depends a good deal upon the depth, and upon the nature of the bottom ; but where there is no chalk to give a milky thickness to the water, the diver pursues his work in a kind of gloomy twilight. By the aid of this he can see and feel his way round the ship, but when he ascends to the deck and winds down into the principal cabins he finds everything pitch dark, and has nothing to guide him but his hands. This is the most difficult, and yet the most frequent, labour he has to en counter ; the danger being, that in a large vessel, where the cabin stairs are deep, and the cabins are long and broad, be may get his air tube twisted round some unfamiliar projections, and so squeeze off his supply...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. ROYAL SPOONBILL. Platelea Regio.—GOULD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL H I S T 0s I fl\ ^ L' X ROYAL SPOONBILL. Platmlea Begia.-GOULD. THIS fine species of Spoonbill may be readily distinguished from those of Europe by the nudity of its face, which is entirely destitute of feathers, even lis von d the eves, and is of the same black colour as the bill; in otherrespects, size and colour of plumage, little dif ference exists be tween the two spe cies. The fine crest which adorns the principal figure in engraving, is doubt less only assumed during the pairing and breeding seasons, as adult specimens are seen with and without it; and this is the same with the European birds. The Royal Spoonbill is common on the East and North coast; it has been killed in New South Wales, though it is a rare visitant to this Colony. It is frequently seen at More ton Bay and Port Essington. It takes up its abode on the margin of the marshy inlets of the sea that run for a considerable distance to the interior; and on the banks of rivers andlakes, feeding up...

BARROW AND ROCHESTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

BARROW AND ROCHESTER. The celebrated Lord Rochestef one day met Dr. Barrow in the Park, and being determined, as he said, to put down the rusty piece of divinity, accosted him by taking off his hat, and, with a profound bow, exclaimed, ' Doctor, I am yours to my shoe- tie.' The doctor, perceiving his aim, returned the salute with equal cere mony : ' My lord, I am yours to the ground.' His lordship then made a deeper congee, and said,' Doctor, I am yours to the centre.' Barrow replied, with the same formality, 'My lord, I am yours to the antipodes;' on which Rochester made another attempt, by exclaiming, 4 Doctor, I am yours to the lowest pit of hell.'-4 There, my lord,'41 leave you;' and immediately walkedaway.

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. THE LORD'S PRAYER, (Continuation of the Moon's Picture Book) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

CHILDREN'S PORTFOLIO. THE LORD'S PRAYER, (Continuation of the Moon's Picture Book) I LOOKED into a large room, no blinds were before it's windows, for they looked out into tbe garden, nobody could but me peep in. What a noisy, merry little Lilil putian erowd was there ? Five little chil dren, all busy and bustling, and undress ing and hunting after their playthings and each other I like to watch them. Look, how a little shoulder creeps forth from the dress, now a plump little leg peeps out, and then a stocking is pulled off, and a tiny rosy foot makes its ap pearance. How pretty they are ! I'here stands tbe happy mother in the middle of them, and watches the sweet rosy faces with their sparkling eyes, of whence sleep seems distant for many hours, yet they must go to bed-all of them. lTie Curly heads crowd all around Mamma, and each little mouth is pointed for a pretty kiss-for each will have the first. They are rather noisy to-night; the eldest little girl makes an effort, and goes ...

HINTS FOR HOMES. FORMATION OF FAMILY CIRCLES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

HINTS FOB HOMES. FORMATION OP FAMILY CIRCLES THE flour mill is the most expensive item in this table of expenditure-and ?what we propose is this: - * Family Circles' should be called, for the purpose of mitigating the evils complained of. Let every 4 Circle' have its mill-let it be kept at a place convenient to all. By such gmeans, a capital of 10s., subscribed by each member, would be sufficient; a little company would be formed, upon a better principle than that of 'limited liability,' since, the capital being paid up, there would be no liability at all f What would be the result? Why, that people ?would obtain pure bread, pure coffee, pure condiments, and other things, a cost of full twenty-five per cent, under that which they now pay for spurious and health-destroying mixtures. OTHER EVILS BESIDES 4 ADULTERATIONS.'

'SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MAN.' [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

* SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MAN.' 'THEUE goes something that should have been a man !' exclaimed a friend. The poor creature was just leaving a low grog-shop. A tall form, with a massive great chest, a noble brow, with a shock of frizzled grey hair; eyes deep, dark, and lustrous once ; now, still deep, but sepulchral, and burning like smouldering fires upon red altars; these made the sum bodily of what should have been a man. But once to trace his career: A beautiful babe, pressed fondly to the breast of a joyous mother. Clinging to her neck, playing with her ringlets, filling the house with the music of hi» laugh. A lovely boy, towards whom all eyes are turned; his face bright with en thusiasm, wending his way to the little school, and there winning prizes. So, in the play-ground, the king among his fellows; vivacious, full of fun and repartee, eager at play. Hear the ring t of his glad shout 1 A youth, already singling his gentle partner. A youth sipping at small , parties...

THE OUTCAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

THE OUTCAST. 4 A HEAVY storm of wind and rain did beat, The night was wild and dark and cold, The trees bent down beneath the furious blast, While sheets of waters washed the dismal streets. Exposed to all this wintry scene, behold A hapless man upon the gloomy road, Alone and sad he stood, while on him poured The chilling wintry storm. Sad, sad indeed he looked as standing there. Around him roared the raging wind ' Why stay you there,' I shouted from my room; ' Why not go home, or else tome shelter take V His streaming face he upward turned and spoke As shivering at my window I did look 'I can't go home,' I'm here upon my beat, 'I'm p'liceman Z, and has to guard this street.'

THE HOLY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

THE HOLY HOMES. SINCE her infamous plot had been ac-1 complished, and the large reward con tingent upon its success had been secured, and she was thus made independent for life, this vile 'and shameless woman had taken by degrees to habits of drunken ness. Whilst work was to do, and active subtle invention necessary, she had been sober and methodical in the extreme, but prevented from returning to England by the search made after her, and even from visiting Paris, by like circumstances, she had remained a mere encumberance in her employer's household, contemptuously teated by his servants, and loathed and dreaded by the unfortunate child she had destroyed. Conscience this woman could have not, but she hated her monotonous and yet necessitated life of seclusion, and, so having no other resource to be guile time, she had sought in the oblivion of intoxication, at first warily and with only the rich wines which spread her table, but soon more fully, and by means more potent. During som...

BRITISH AND AUSTRALIAN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

BRITISH AND AUSTRALIAN HORSES. - -4 IN our last, we wound up with a glowing description of the Horse, penned by Job, the most sublime ever written by mortal roan. There is pleasure in the thought that Job not only possessed a first-rate knowledge of horses, but also of his God. The Bible has high claims on every horseman, and ought to be the base work of his library. The honesty of Job contrasts widely with some of his modern successors, yet the bump of hope bids us wish to read his works and learn his ways. Julius Caesar had the honor of intro ducing to our notice the horses of our mother land. His grandfather thought it was a land of misty steam, and so it was, and so it is,-in art and nature, grandly so; dimming with unmeasured power all other lands, being at first a terror-still the same; great in all her ways, from first to last. Away, far away .-some hundreds years ago-our fathers met the Roman foe upon her shores, and fought with courage, great, unconquered, unsubdued ; and i...

TEMPERANCE ITEMS. ALLIANCE BAND OF HOPE. A social soiree, for the purpose of cele brating the reorganisation of the Alli ance Band of Hope, was held in the Temperance Hall on Tuesday evening. It will be remembered that this Society was in existence some time ago, and was then in a very flourishing state. From the indisposition of one of the principal promoters of the Society, and othei4 un toward events over which the Commit tee had no control, the meetings were discontinued, and the Society became disorganised. The Hall was tastefully decorated for the occasion with the flags and banners of the Society, and also evergreens in great variety. At half past six o'clock, a large and highly res pectable assemblage, in which the ladies predominated, sat down to tea, after which the company adjourned to the open air while the tables were being, cleared. The Rev. W. Cuthbertson was then moved into the chair, and in a very excellent and impressive speech urged the importance of such societie...

A detachment of H. M. 12th had taken up their quarters, at the lonely bush settlement, and the officers were the guests of the hardy old veteran, one of the earliest Canterbury settlers. The English are decidedly the only nation on the face of the globe, who can transport the luxuries and refine ments of civilised life into a wilderness.

VERY little credit to the dignity of mankind under adversity did Stanley's behaviour do, in his interview with the highwayman. So nimbly passed the transfer of property, and the little in cidents following, designed in lieu of lawyers, witnesses, and parchment, to secure that property to its new owner, by securing its old owner from making any claim upon it, that, when the succes ful client, haying won his case under the . ancient law of 'take who may, and keep who can,' passed out of sight at a curve in the road, the defeated one was still staring after hira, with a gaze of blank and wandering stupidity. After a few moments, Stanley made a desperate clutch at the handkerchief which bound him, hut the highwayman had done his work with no amateur hand; strong was the band, and firm the knots, ...
