HOW DO BUSH FIRES ORIGINATE? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

HOW DO BUSH FIRES ORIGINATE? TO THE KDITOE. Sir— I was talking to a shepherd this morning, when he took out of his pocket some tobacco, and at the same time dropped through his fingers on to the ground a match, several of which he had loose in his trousers pocket. He took no notice of it. ' I read him a lecture, and showed him that the match, a 'Tandstickor,' would ignite of itself on a day like last Thursday, if some grass or stick were blown against it, As I doubt not that hundreds are doing the same all ;oyer the colony, we need not wonder at these fires. Tandstickors go off almost without 'friction, at the least touch on a very hot day, A fire is now burning across the range, on the Gilbert, visible from my office window, being about the 30th this summer. - lam, Sir, &c, JOHN SMALL. Kapunda, December 24, 1867.

BUSH-FIRES—THEIR PREVENTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

BUSH-FIRES— THEIR PREVENTION. ' TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Having returned again to town for a brief space, I wish, to make a suggestion to the Government for the better prevention of bush fires. I may say that having travelled for several years (15 altogether) in the bush, I ought to know something about the best mode of prevention. Under the system which X am in the habit of adopting in the summer months (not exactly in accordance with the law as it at present stands, but far. superior to its require ments), I am happy to be able to say that I have never yet caused a bush-fire. If the sug gestions I shall throw out be in future required bylaw, I think bush-fires will be very much lessened in number., ? My. system iswmply this. In bush travelling -in 'the summer months, all a bushman requires is a small fire to boil his pot of tea. As soon as that is done the fire is not wanted, and may. be 'dispensed with during October, Noveintegr December, January, Feb.1 ruary, and first , part of Mar...

FREE ADMISSION OF OUR WINES INTO VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

FREE ADMISSION OF OUR WINES INTO VICTORIA. FFrom the Melbourne TTe.raLIA Dr. Bleasdale, who is on a visit to Adelaide, has, we see, been delivering a lecture there on the Australian wine trade and its prospects, especially here in the Australian colonies themselves. The rev. doctor proposes that there should be free trade in wine and other native produc tions, between the various colonies which form the Australian group ; and we can not see How any one can gainsay the wisdom, the advantages, and the com mon sense of such a proposal. It is certainly one of the strangest anomalies which can occur, that a race of men all starting as emigrants from the same mother country, and at the same period of time, and coming out here to the remotest region of the globe in search »f a new home, should, the moment they settle down on different patches of the coast of their newly-adopted land, apply themselves to raise up artificial barriers against the commercial interchange of the commodities whic...

A RATTLESNAKE AT LIBERTY. EXCITING SCENE AT A MENAGERIE. Some weeks ago a group of eight American rattlesnakes, which had been landed at Liverpool, were purchased by Mr. Wm. Manders, and were first ex hibited by that gentleman at North ampton. As the box in which the snakes had been brought over was to a certain exten unsafe, Mr. Manders had a stout case expressly manufactured fer their reception, and the poisonous reptiles were installed in their new quarters. The new case had a thick plate.glass front aud top, hot water cisterns underneath, and a small door, fastened by a spring latch, on one side. This case, in its turn, fitted in a massive oak box, in which, it was placed when the snakes were not on exhibition ; every possible precaution being taken to prevent accident. Mr. Manders arrived with his menagerie _at Tunbridge Wells on Friday morning last, and as soon as he had 'set' the caravans ke left for London to superintend the debarkation of three giraffes which he had purchas...
