FIRE AT THE COSMOPOLITAN COMPANY'S CLAIM, BALLAARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 April 1865

FIRE AT THE COSMOPOLITAN COMPANY'S CLAIM, BALLAARAT. An accident of an unusually serious nature, and which it was feared would have been the cause of the death of several human beings, occurred on 30th ult., at the Cosmopolitan Gold Mining Company's claim. It appears that about seven o'clock p.m., Barker descended and waited at the bottom of the shaft for some timber which ho was informed would come down with the next trucks lowered. While so waiting, some of the men from above perceived that the main shaft was on fire, and immediately com municated the fact to Barker, who, in the most praiseworthy manner, hastened off to warn the men forming the shift of the danger with which they were threatened. This shift, which consisted of fourteen men, with one Heard as captain, was dis tant between 1300 and 1400 foot from the shaft, working in the gutter. The smoke was, of course, rapidly increasing each second, but Barker, with great perseverance, at last succeeded in reaching his fellow- w...

[advertisement.] The Human System. — The delicate structure, and intricate combinations of the human system, are well calulatcd to impress the mind with the wonderful mechanism of our Physical organisation. Like a truly complicated and delicate machine, we are in deed ' fearfully and wonderfully made.' Who does not wonder at the extended duration of human life, even under the most favorable circumstances? Still more strange is it that, when subjected to the in fluence of irregular habits, improper diet, a deleterious atmosphere and unskilful treatment, it does not, like a disorganised machine, rush on to immediate dos truction. Such, however, is not often tho case. Like a fine machine, clogged and foul for want of careful cleansing and good management, we see it with its combinations deranged, and its functions ob structed, laboring and struggling for a precarious ex istence under a complication of diseases that, too often, render life a curse rather than a blessing to its possessor...

Seven other men were severely injured, and it is thought that one of them (Daniel Mace Nicol) oan Bot possibly recover. It is at present difficult to assign the precise cause of this fearful catastrophe, and it is, perhaps, not desirable to offer ? any opinion on the matter, which should be inquired into by skilled and competent persons, The results of the accident may, liowever, be definitely stated; and, so far as ascer tained, they are as follows: — On the western side of the Dry Dock there is a largo building, about one hundred and fifty feet long, the greater part of which is used as a workshop by Messrs P.
