CHAKADES, &C. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 30 June 1860

CHAKADES, &c. Upon my second where it dips Into the placid water, I' saw youg ' Brief' the lawyer's son. With ' What-d'ye-call-him's' daughter.. By hearing something like my first, I guess'd what they were doing; And-yet unseen-did creep away, So not to spoil their wooing. ' Twas at my whole that this took place, Now isn't it distressing; You cannot find what's meant by wholes Without the work of guessing. II. Of the lightness of my fitst, My second aid complain, And quickly had to use my whole, To ease him of the pain. III. Night on the wave-and lowering on high, Dark gloomy edg'd clouds overshadow'd the sky? And the waters disturb'd by the voice of the wind, Arose in huge columns before and behind The track of my seeond; as swift on her way, She drove thro' the storm in the face of the spray : Steering for where in the vista was seen, My first o'er the darkness that brooded between. There were those on the deck that were watching the foam, Whose sunshiny hearts were alread...

A PARABLE BY SPURGEON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

A PARABLE BY SPURGEON. I A certain tyrant sent for one of his subjects and said to him, ' What is your employment?' He said, 'lama black smith.' . Go home,' said he, ' and make a chain of such a length.* He went home. It occupied him several months, > j and he had no wages all the while ne wM making it. Then he brought it toi the monarch, and he said, ' Go and make1 it twice as long.' He gave him nothing to do it with but sent him away. Again he worked on, and made it twioe as long. | He brought it up again to the monarch, and he said, ' Go and make it longer still.' Bach time he brought it, theie was nothing but command to make it longer still. And when he brought it np at last, the monarch said, * Take it, and bind him hand and foot with it, and east him into a furnace of fire.' These were his wages for making the chain.

VARIETY OF NARCOTICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

-+ VARIETY OF NARCOTICS. THS mode in which the honey-dew tobacco is prepared in America, is by steeping the leaf in a spirituous solution of opium, and then compressing. A medical friend recently returned from the State tells me that this drugged article is known as the * Orator's Friend.' The fol lowing are the facts of some experiments \ I made :-A piece of honey-dew weighing 4 oas. was divided ; one-half was found to contain 20 grains of opium ; the re maining half was cut into four parts of j ¿ oz. each, and a part chewed each day for four successive days. Symptoms pro duced first day-nausea, vomiting, giddi ness, and ultimately stupor ; second day +-ending in vomiting and prostration ; third day-intense delirium, seiniparaly sis lasting two hours, increased vomiting, *nd longer prostration.

PITY AND PRAY FOR HER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

PITY AND PRAY FOR HER. _:_A_:_ A CALM clear evening had followed a beautiful calm day in the winter of last year. Such a day as is not to be seen in the winter mouths in dear old England. The brief night was rapidly passing away, when a poor deluded creature crouched down in her tatters and misery beside a cottage gate; bright young faces looked out from one of the windows of the cottage, and with silvery voices asked was she ill? That poor dirty-looking woman, ahl no she was not ill; suddenly an alteration in her position revealed her face to the gaze of the sympathetic chil dren, bat such a face, such a disfigured, helpless, hopeless lookiugface. The little ones glanced towards her in dismay, and asked with quivering lips and hushed voices, what made that strange look in her face? 4 She is intoxicated I' 4 Oh ! why, could she- drink, and make herself like that ? ls God angry with her ? Can she go to heaven ?' At length the youngest, a tiny fragile flower ot' two.brief summers, who...

PHYSIOGNOMY AND PHRENOLOGY OF THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

PHYSIOGNOMY AND PHRENOLOGY OF THE HORSE. WE have now passed the most roman tic part ef our essay, and enter the more practical, viz., How do we know a good horse from a bad one ? It is not to be expected however, that the mere reading the following description, though of itself plain, can ever make us masters of the subject; to know we must see and handle a true model ; the verbal aid of any true lover of the species will do no harm provided he or she be not a biggot. Perfection here as elsewhere is rare, in fact you need never expect to look at a perfect horse. You will however find points in different animals as good as could he wished for, and thus from one yon learn one point from another, until in the long-run, a perfect model may exist inside your own cranium, and then you may venture to choose for yourself and others. We must commence with a description of the head, for all the body ought to be made subservient in form and use to this part. As a matter of course, each chapter...

A YANKEE AT A RESTAURANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

A YANKEE AT A RESTAURANT. AN American in Paris went to a restau rant to get his dinner. Unacquainted with the French language, yet unwilling to show his ignorance, he pointed to the first line on the bill of fare, and the polite waiter brought him a fragrant plate of beef soup. This was very well, and when it was despatched he pointed to tho second line. The waiter understood him perfectly, and brought him a vegetable soup. * Bather more soup than I want,' thought he, 4 but it is Paris fashion.' He duly pointed to the third line, and a plate of tapioca broth was brought him. Again to the fourth, and was furnished with a bowl of preparation of arrow-root. He tried the fifth line, and was supplied with some gruel kept for invalids. The bystanders now supposed that they saw an unfortunate individual who had lost all his teeth, and our friend, determined to get as far from the soup as possible, pointed in despair to the last line on the bill of fare. The intelligent waiter, who saw at o...

THC old lady has come to London t» select a guardian for her precious son Ike, and remarks as follows : - ' How the world has turned ahout to be sure,' said she ; * 'tis nothing but change, change. Only yesterday, as it were, I was in the country, smelling the odious flowers : to day I am in London, my oilfactories breathing the impure execrations of coal smoke that are so dilatory to health. Instead of the singing of birds tjae blunderbusses almost deprive me of con scientiousness. Dear me ! Well, I hope I shall be restrained through it all. They say that the moral turpentine of this"city is frightful; but it isn't any use to anticipate trouble beforehand : he tnay escape all harmonious influences that would have a tenderness to hurt him ; and as the minister of our parish said, with judicial training he may be come a useful membrane of society ; though training is bad generally, and is apt to make the young run to feathers, like cropple-crowne...

So from (ky to day for full a fortnight, \ * tho raft glided slowly down the river, passing occasionally great towns, but being more usualy amidst the deep silence of nature, with marshy meadows on either side, or league after league of primeval forest land. Had the unhappy girl been less ill than she was, the lovely scenery, clad in all the full glory of the spring, would have greatly charmed her ; but she could do little more than lie still ' within the hut of boughs the raftmen had built for her, and occasionally cool her fevered hands in the clear waters as they rippled by. The men, though rough and savage, were not unkind, yet in spite of Jacques* warning, they w»>re con * stantly soliciting money wherewith to buy wine, so that sou by sou the nar row store decreased.

THE KANGAROO HUNT; OR, A MORNING IN THE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

THE KANGAROO HUNT; OR, A MORNING IN THE MOUNTAINS. BY CHARLES HABTUR. MANY an eminent hill sublime Hast thou, Australia, like this we climb : Beyond the loud Ñapean they rise, And by old Hawksbury's billowy tide, And by the rapid Hunter's side, And where the Wallombi darkling lies, Or with a broken and lonely moan, Or with a sudden and strenuous chide, Adown its rocky channel hies ; Girt with wood to the craggy cone tip they go into the skies, O'er hills and vales and prairies wide Staring, as with stony eyes. Now from some Crag brushed by the green Fresh sprays, wind-floated to and fro, The extremest sprays of stately treen That find their roots in the ravine A dizzy depth below, Send the glad eye o'er a glorious View ! Here ever-verdent vales are seen All veined with brooks that glister and glow Green bays amid the mountains blue ; Till brown by distance, and then grey, In winding indistinctiveness, they Behind those folding mountains go Upon their hidden way : Or else located pla...

THE CEMETERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

THE CEMETERY. WAïiKiNGthrough our cemetery at New town a short time ago, reading an in scriptien on this splendid monument, and anon bending to decipher the tribute of perhaps a more sincere love, and deeper affection displayed in the growth of a few carefully nurtured violéis and heartsease surrounding the plain and simple head stone, placed to denote the terrestial sleeping place of a fondly cared-for relative or friend, my ears were frequently asailed by peals of merry laughter ringing out as though the owner of that glad heart was to live in the flesh for ages, and had no thought of ought but joyful passing time. Again I could detect the sarcastic criticism be stowed on the labour of perhaps a heart wrung dear one left behind to mourn in silent solitude and black despair. The effort of a beardless boy, to please a silly girl by venting his coarse wit in finding or attempting to find, a foible in the composition of a couplet on a simple stone, particularly attracted my notice.

FEAR NO MORE. _A_ O ! come let us go to the cliff, Lisette, I Now the shadows of evening fall, And list to the surf as it madly beats As a foe on a castle wall. Look ! look ! at the storm-tossed sea, Lisette, And hark how the seagulls cry, As driven before the hurricane wild They shriek as they hitherward fly. Look at yon trembling foam, Lisette, And hark how the breakers roar, As they wrench the weeds from the surf's grim crown, And fling it in heaps on the shore. A storm ! a storm ! can you hear, Lisette, 4 As you trembling crouch at my side, Why are your lips so quivering white, And your eyes why struggle to hide Î Ho! ho! there's a lightning flash, Lisette, And now what a thundering peal, Ha ! ha ! what a shudder the old crag gires, Say, can you the trembling feel ! The kin? of the storm is awake, Lisette, Around him the lightnings play. Yet a voice is above the loud storm wind, Do you hear what the thunders say ! Do you hear when the lightning strikes, Lisette, Oi the crag wher...

NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 14 July 1860

t NAILS. \ n IN the last century the manufacture of nails was by no means a simple operation, yet men who were trained to the work were able to make 2300 in a day. This must have been a dexterity derived from years practice, for each part of the nail had to be forged, and tools changed for forming the heads. The Americans have effected a great change in this ; they invented some years since a machine, by which boys can cut more nails in a day than our readers would care to count. In Birmingham one factory makes 20 tons of nails per week, all sizes. Sheets of iron six feet in length, and two in width, these are qut in strips. The strips must be cut the long way of the sheet, because that would bring the grain of the iron the wron cr wav for the nail, and a bad article .would be produced. As the nails are cut across the strip of iron, the strip must be cut across the sheet. The width of the strip must be some what longer than the length of the nail, ¡ because the head must be allowed ...

THE CAMELS. -A_ -- THE long-expected camels for the ex ploring expedition have arrived in Melbourne, in charge of Mr. George J. Landells, on board the ship Chinsurah, from Kurrachee. It will ever be remem bered that in December, 1858, it was resolved to purchase camels in India, for the purpose of facilitating the ex ploration in the interior, for which, it was supposed, their speed and endurance, and more especially their power of travel ing long distances without water, would especially recommend them. Mr; Lan dells, then in India, was communicated with, and in May of last year he ac knowledged from Lahore the receipt of the instructions addressed to him. lt was desired that the camels should reach Melbourne by the month of March last, but the difficulties Mr. Landells experi enced in procuring the animals-for which he travelled to Affghanistan at a time when Northern India was still under the influence of the expiring flames of rebellion-occasioned more de lays than had been anti...
