The following extract from a letter
the Herald will show how small-pox may be
detected by the health officers. Hs says : — In
1850, I was an apprentice on board a well-
known Sydney barque, and left Sydney with a
cargo of horses for Calcutta. We arrived safely
at our destination, and took in a general cargo
for Hobart Town and Sydney. Tho poop cabins
were full of officers and their families on their
two years' leave to tho colonies, the after part
of the lower deck was fitted up for
the second cabin passengers, the apprentices'
berths and a place petitioned off for some
had not an inch of spare room. We left Cal
cutta and ran down to Madras to pick up some
eight or ten more military convicts. They were
shipped on board, one of them (as we found out
hospital, cured of the small-pox. A few days
after we left Madras C. and I were taken sick ;
the doctor examined us, and declared that we
had the small-pox. You can ima
gine the consternation and horror that
there was on board, especially among the
cabin ladies. Disinfectants were freely used ;
but we were so crowded that we could not be
isolated. However, the disease took a favour
able turn, and in a week we were all right
again ; but as we were- getting well another
apprentice, V., took sick. Tho disease showed
pustles, was delirious, and not expected to live.
He, however, also got round quickly, but was
very much pitted.
" We were hoping then that it was all over—
we were to the southward of the line and getting
into cool weather — but the second mate was
stricken down ; he had it also very severely, and
we anchored off Hobart Town, with him lying
ill in the awning cabin. The pilot
and health-officer had boarded us, and
we were reported all well. We lay
there two or three weeks, discharged some
of our cargo, the second mate got convalescent,
the captain paid him off, and gave him
his discharge. We then ran up to Sydney, and
of course reported all well there. There was
not the slightest doubt of their being genuine
cases of small pox, as poor V. and the second
mate very very much pitted.
"As to the question of the benefit or otherwise
of vaccination, I have always believed that
the reason that C. and I escaped so
well was through being vaccinated, but how
the disease did not spread any further has
always been a mystery to me.
"I give you the name of the vessel, captain's
name, owner, and my fellow-apprentices, two of
whom are well known in Sydney."

THE WARREN FIRE
WARREN,. Friday.
The fire which occurred at Warren last
night effected much greater destruction
than was at first supposed, although it was
at one tine thought that the whole town
would be burned down Over 30 business
places were completely destroyed. The
fire broke out a little before 5 o'clock, and
spread rapidly. The afternoon had been
extremely hot, followinhg on the several
days previously. All attempts to stop the
fire were unavailing, although hundreds of
hands were working willingly. The dam-
aged property is variously estimated from
£70,000 to £100,000. Numbers of families
are left homeless, and house accommoda-
tion is limited. Great distress necessarily
prevails on account of the hot weather. Se-
veral horses were burned in their stables,
but no loss of life is recorded.. The arte
sian water supply was turned on, but ow-
ing to the limited quantity of hose avail-
able the firemen were unable to cope with
the flames. The town has a desolate ap-
pearance this morning.
Appended is a list of more important
promises destroyed and injured by the con-
flagration.
