(Graham’s Town Journal)
On Tuesday evening about 9 o’clock the extensive wagonmaker’s shop and smithy, belonging to Messrs POWELL of this place, were discovered to be on fire, and must have been smouldering for some time, as when first seen the fire was so extensively spread through the interior as to defy resistance. Even a horse in an attached stable could not be liberated, and after being shockingly scorched was shot in his stall, in order to terminate at once the poor animal’s torture. The usual alarm was given, and an immense concourse repaired to the spot, but without being able to afford any aid save the removal of some fencing and wagon materials which lay outside the building. Everything inside was totally consumed. His Excellency the Governor was on the spot, and also the military with a fore engine from Fort England, but no water was for some time to be had, and when obtained the supply was so small as to be nearly, if not entirely, useless. The military were most active - Col. PERCIVAL, 12th Regt, directing the men to remain on the spot so long as there was any appearance of danger. We regret to state that Messrs. POWELL were uninsured, and thus a crashing loss has fallen upon two of the most industrious and deserving of our community. No clue has been given as to the origin of this fire, but it is supposed it commenced in the wagonmaker’s shop, and that it must have smouldered there from the time of closing at dusk until it burst out furiously at the hour stated. The building being isolated and the night calm, no other injury was sustained, save a personal one by Mr. J. POWELL, who in his anxiety to rescue the horse and save what property he could, got rather severely, though we believe not dangerously, burned.

Five days previous he was in the enjoyment apparently of good health – but was attacked with an affection of the bowels, producing inflammation which terminated fatally.

His funeral was attended by the Civil Commissioner (acting as Pall-bearer) and by a large number of inhabitants”

(Eastern Province Herald)
Among the numerous towns and villages established within the last five years, there is not one whose progress has been so rapid and surprising as that of Queen’s Town. It numbers about 150 houses, some very well built. Somerset, although a much older place, cannot boast of many more houses – its situation for trade could not be better. The town is laid out on the Kommane River, and is bounded on the north by the Albert Division – south by the Kat Berg – East by the Amatolas and Thomas River – and west by the Cradock Division, cutting off some of the best parts of the latter division. The farms in the districts of Cradock and Somerset, although good grazing country, are not equal to the farms in the Queen’s Town division for sheep and agricultural purposes; a fact established by the number of sheep-farmers flocking from these districts, especially from the Baviaan’s River, one of the best parts of the Somerset district – the pasturage is more like that of the Sovereignty – the country between the Zuurberg and Golding’s Farm, the “Morning Star”, the first farm in the Queen’s Town division, is entirely a Karoo Velt, very uninteresting and disagreeable to travel through. But, immediately after leaving Golding’s Farm, the country bears quite a different aspect. It is very sweet and luxuriant grassy looking country, interspersed with beautiful mimosa thorn which add very much to its beauty – the grass in many parts, indeed nearly the whole of this division, stands from 2 to 3 feet high, and looks at a short distance like a crop of waving wheat, the country is not so cold as generally reported to be, it is much better sheltered than the Albert district. The surrounding mountains and high mimosa thorns afford capital shelter and pasturage to stock in winter. There are now about 300 farms occupied by the best men from all parts of the country, the BOWERs, BOWKERs, PRINGLEs, SCOTT, STEWART, BERTRAM, PULLEN, and a great many others well-known in the late war being among the number. They are mostly sheep-farmers, some few are likely to turn their attention chiefly to agriculture. This is another respect in which the division is so much superior to most other districts. Most of the farmers can irrigate to a considerable extent, one farmer on the Univani last season from four buckets of yellow Bengal corn realised 35 muids clean wheat, this is owing to the fact of the crops not being liable to rust, in consequence of the frosts which are occasionally experienced towards the fall of winter. The increase is said to be very great in the sheep, but they are not liable to the geelziekte, a disease which sweeps away hundreds in the Karoo veld. If we may judge from the number of bales lying about the stores of the shopkeepers, it appears to be brought in that market in considerable quantities, the farmers having the advantage for getting up their wool in a proper manner, as most fine farms are watered by rivers and strong permanent streams. Some of these are particularly well adapted for washing sheep. This division bids fair to become on of the principal wool growing districts in the colony, as the farmers have very little to fear from the Native Tribes on the border, the farms are divided in such a manner as to bring to homesteads close together. So that in case of an outbreak some 60 or 70 men could muster at any given point in any one of the respective field-cornetcies within an hour, as the country is very open, the enemy would find it very difficult to make away with sheep. There is no doubt that the farmers owing to the Natives of the country, and the manner in which they are located, will be able to protect their flocks. A grand muster is to take place on the 24th, when it is expected that 1,000 efficient men will be present, the exact strength is not at present ascertained, but it is quoted when all the farms are occupied that at least 1,500 men capable of bearing arms could be mustered together in a short time – the country is at present in a very peaceable condition, and the most perfect good feeling existing among all parties, everything appears to go on smoothly, with the exception of an occasional dispute with the grantees and one of the Surveyors. A great deal of praise is due to the Resident Magistrate, Mr. SHEAPSTONE, and the Commandant of the Rural Police, Mr. GRIFFITHS. The division may well congratulate itself in having two such men appointed to their division, while the former was ever disposed tp promote by his influence and experience the interests of the division, the latter is to be found zealous and alive in his duties. The Rural Police have been of infinite service to this division, and it is hoped after the meeting of parliament that this force will be considerably augmented.

THE WYNBERG FESTIVAL
On the 24th May the loyal inhabitants of Wynberg, with a large accession of holiday makers from the town, assembled to celebrate the Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen. Some well-contested races took place, and the sports were varied with the popular entertainments of “greasy pole”, “sack racing”, “bobbing for oranges” &c – the day’s amusements concluding with a brilliant display of fireworks. On Monday last the sports were continued. Vehicles of all descriptions again thronged the Hill, and thousands of persons from the highest public official to the humblest “nigger” were to be seen, with smiling and happy countenances, enjoying the various well-chosen amusements. It must have been highly gratifying to His Honor, who was present on both days, as well as to the subscribers generally, to have witnessed the peaceable and decorous conduct of the multitudes assembled on each occasion. To the zeal and activity of the stewards great praise was everywhere accorded; and the enjoyments of the day were in no small degree heightened by the animating strains poured forth by the splendid band of the 73rd, which, by the kind permission of Colonel PINCKNEY and Capt. PETO, was in attendance on both days, and remained on Monday until after the fireworks ceased, when “God Save the Queen” cheered the hearts of Her Majesty’s subjects, and was responded to with loud, long and continued cheering for her health and happiness.
