THE OCCURRENCE OF THE RECENT FIRE in this neighbourhood renders the present a fitting op- portunity to call general attention to the frequency of such accidents in the United Kingdom, notwithstand- ing the variety of means which advanced science and individual prudence have suggested for their preven- tion. As IN THE CASE OF EVERY OTHER CATASTROPHE, the evils of accident by fire are but faintly realised when viewed from a distance. It is when they are brought close to our own doors, and affect those whom we know, that we become adequately impressed with their nature and the extent of our own liability. While, therefore, the impression of the recent fire is vivid on the minds of all in this neighbourhood, a con- sideration of the following facts may with great pro- priety be asked. s r OF ALL ACCIDENTS FIRES ARE THE MOST FREQUENT and the most ruinous. In London the Superintendent of the Fire Brigade sends round to the Insurance Offices each morning a list of all the fires to which the engines have been called during the previous twenty- four hours and this Fire Sheet" ordinarily contains the report of several conflagrations. In the whole twelve months there is rarely a twenty-four hours during which the'engines are at rest, and rarely an occasion on which the" sheet" states that there has not been any fire from 6 a.m. of the previous, to 6 a.m. of the current day. THIS IS ONE CITY ALONE; while in other large cities, in tewns, in villages, fires_ daily occur, in the aggregate in large numbers; but it is only the most extensive and disastrous of which the general public hears. Hun- dreds of persons are for ever crippled in their resources, of whom the world hears nothing. Indeed, the ear would weary with the perpetual reiteration of reports of I I fire," if but one-half of the cases were made known by the press. Where the fire occurs, the newspapers particularize it; elsewhere, save it be of great magni- tude, it is probably unheard of. THE CAUSES OF ACCIDENTS BY FIRE are often en- tirely beyond our control. The following are a few instances of this. A man may himself be scrupulously careful; but it avails him but little if he has a NEGLI- GENT NEIGHBOUR; for if the latter has a fire, the con- tiguous property is almost certain to be more or less injured. Or an UNNOTICED SPARK, a diminutive messenger of evil, wafted quick as thought from a candle or expelled from the fire, may lie hidden and unsuspected in some favouring substance, until a cur- rent of air wakens it into a fierce and spreading flame. The INOAUT ON OF A SERVANT OR A LODGER may set at nought all the prudence of a householder, and cause his rum. An ill-constructed flue; a defective gas joint; chemical action resulting in spontaneous firing: all these causes, with many others, may cause at any .cY-u a x- 'which shall lay in ruins the accumulations of the patient industry of years. EVERY ONE POSSESSING PROPERTY IS EXPOSED TO THE RISK of accidental fire. None can say when or where the next will break out; and so no one can claim im- munity against the raids of this subtle enemy. All are exposed to a certain risk of this uncertain danger, some of course to a greater degree than others. The owner of the mansion and the cottage, the merchant-prince and the shop-keeper, the householder and the occupier of a single room, the farmer and the labouring man, are each, to a certain extent, liable to such losses. FOR A FEW SHILLINGS, an Insurance Company will take the risk of. ruin by fire from any man's shoulders: and, in the event of his sustaining a loss, will place him exactly m the position he originally held. For a FEW SHILLINGS, the ruin is averted, although the possi- bility of accident remains precisely the same. The value of Insurance consists in this, that by it the con- tributions of the many go to make up the losses of the comparatively few sufferers. MILLIONS OF PROPERTY ARE UNINSURED, and people are constantly reduced to beggary in consequence. This can only result from one of two causesIGNO- RANCE OF THE LOW TERMS on which Insurances may be effected, or culpable thoughtlessness. The premium for Fire Insurance ranges from eighteen-pence per cent. upwards, according to the risk. An uninsured man may lie down to rest in high prosperity, surroun- ded by support; and yet, before the next sunrise, a fire, sudden and unexpected, may bring him to ruin. Is it worth while to continue so great a risk, when it may be so cheaply guarded against ? ONLY TWO CLASSES OF PERSONS can afford to remain uninsured, seeing how constant and subtle the danger, and how low the terms for protection. The first class is composed of those whose property is large and widely dispersed, so that the heavy annual sums they would have to pay, if kept in hand, will be sufficient to meet the loss of accident occurring to any single part of lr their property. The other class is composed of those who have nothing to lose. All between these two extremes are clearly urged, by the logic of facts, by the doctrine of probabilities, and by the experience of their neighbours, to insure at once. LET THE READER CONSIDER THESE STATEMENTS. They are not hastily or flippantly made, but are calmly set forth, and cannot be disproved. The space com- pels brevity, but much more might be said to the same effect. It is well to learn wisdom by experience; but let it be remembered, that he who gains it by an obser- vation of the experience of others is wiser than he who can only be admonished by what he personally endures.
