Country News. FLOOD AT MUDGEE AND LOSS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 September 1856

Cmratnr Hems. FLOOD AT MDDGEE AND LOSS OF LIFE. The following particulars of this distressing occurrence, are taken fiom the S. ftl. Herald, of Tuesday last. An appalling visitation has just overtaken us. On Monday (yesterday) evening, Messrs. L'Estrange and Gorman were both together drowned in the river. The particulars, so far as can be gathered, are these ; About sunset Mr. L'Estrange rode hurriedly down to the river, at tho Mudgee Water Hole crossing-place, to recover his horse, which had swam across the river in the course of the day, and, heedless of the rushing torrent, he dashed into it. He was speedily swept into the waterholo immediately below, and, so far as is known, was unseated, and struggling for life, when Mr. Gorman, who had followed on foot, plunged in to his rescue ; the force of the current was quite overpowering, and both were soon seen some distance downwards, rising together, apparently in each other's arms. One of them was again observed to rise near the cros...

ROCKY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 September 1856

110CKY RIVER. (From the Armidale Express , August 30.) The news from the Rocky River is of the same character as usual. A large majority of those who have bottomed their claims are doing well, and the diggers are gradually scattering over a wider scope of country. Many are arriving, and but few departing. , The want of an escort is severely felt, and the residents on tho /}?-v-v5nrvc o.ro vni«v n.nvimic f.Viflfe nnA cWnil/1 ha nfifnVilJcliA/T j mediately. Considerable excitement has been lately exhibited on I the llocky, respecting the cause of which we proceed to give a brief sketch. Without pledging ourselves to its being absolutely correct, we may state that wo have reason to believe it to bo authentic. A short time ago Mr. Bucliantl'n, a miner on tho nocKy, received a grant or a large section oi ground on one sine of the river, with half-a-mile water frontage, from the Commis sioner, J. Buchanan, Esq. Wo are informed that several diggers subsequently tried this ground, and prove...

Mining News. STONEY CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 September 1856

\ Units. STONEY CllEEK. (From the Bathurst Free Press.) Notwithstanding the reiterated assertions of unsuccessful diggers and others who delight in underrating the character of ? the\Yestern Gold Fields, the continual arrival in town of heavy nuggets, and other large quantities of gold, proves ^beyond dispute that there is plontv of gold, in somo form or other, at the Stoney Creek diggings. On Thursday last a Stoney Creek digger, who came into town the preceding evening by the Urange mail, brought to the Court house 95 ounces of gold to be forwarded to Sydney per escort. This amount, together with ten ounces which he sold in Bathurst the previous evening, was his share of the proceeds arising from tho labours of himself and five mates during ; a period of seven weeks. The depth .at which this was obtained : was from one to five feet. He further stated that he knew of a very considerable quantity, we understand upwards of a thousand ? ounces, waiting for the establishment of an escor...

THE TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 September 1856

? THE TURON. The F'ce Press correspondent savs : — I have this evening read ?your occasional correspondent's letter, in which there is a great ?deal of truth, with a little exaggeration. 'It is true that, with ??few exceptions, all have returned from the Louisa and Stoney Creeks, and large numbers from Bendigo and Ballaarst, with many or whom'i am acquainted, i nave ueen conversing witn .?some of them, . and find that they ?consider that, from their ??experience at those places, they can make the valley of Old Turon turn' them up their pile in a much easier way than formerly, that -19, by bringing water on the points. Two parties ! know are particularly bent upon so doing. One has already fired on the place where they intend to commence operations. The other, I expect, 3ias decided also. It would be swelling my communication to an ?iin warrantable length were I to enumerate all the various places on the Old Turon where very good prospects have been obtained .-of late.

(From the Correspondent of the Maitland Mercury, Sept. 9.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 September 1856

( From the Correspondent of the Maitland Mercury, Sept. 9.) The weather has set in uncommonly fine, and spring in the tyecollection of the oldest has never been known to put 011 a more .promising aspect. Tho wheat — the little that is of it — in this ?immediate vicinity looks moat promising. There is a very great breadth of this most necessary article sown in this district, and ?there is very little to apprehend that, with ordinary weather, there will be quite enough for the consumption or the district, and .io spare, during the ensuing season. ? The arrivals here are daily augmenting, many of whom are .experienced miners. These will unquestionably confer a benefit on the less experienced, who form rather a large number here at -present. The miners have recently begun to prospect on a more extensive *and divided scale than hitherto, and there can be no question but .as this prospecting continues fresh discoveries will every day take :place, and ultimately place the llocky River digg...
