THE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

THE FLOODS. The followling was published in our Extraor- dinary of Tuesday last : In our regular publication of Friday last, it became our painful duty to record several of the rumors which were then flying about of various casualties which had occurred in the backwaters of the rivers Thomson, Macalister, and Avon during the recent flood. Up to the time of our going to press on Friday morning we had but little information concerning the fearful realities which have since revealed themselves to us, coupled as they have been with the certainty that at least seven human lives have been sacrificed by the unrelenting waters, which seemed, as if in the very plenitude of buoyant exhuberances, to rush with impetuosity over every dry spot of land which lay within their grasp. On that occasion we referred to an incident which brought with it feelings of dreadful suspense, but up to Saturday evening we had no certainty of the fate of Drolette and his wife. We then described the melancholy spec...

THE INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

THE INQUEST. About five o'clock on Saturday evening the melancholy cortege arrived at Sale, when the bodies were immediately taken to the Club Hotel, there to await the Coroner's Inquest. A short space of time served to collect the number requisite to form a jury, and in less than half an hour after the arrival of the remains of the deceased, the Coroner, A. Arbuckle, Esq., opened his court, and pro- ceeded to swear in the following gentlemen :- W. B. Cunninghame (foreman), James Davey, Robert Hood, William Legge, Peter Smith, Ferdinand Duval, Daniel McGhee, George French, William Williams, A. H. McIntyre, R. Henderson, and John Duncan. The jury having been duly sworn, the Coroner briefly addressed them, and requested them to proceed at once to where the bodies were lying, when the constable in charge would point out each individual to them. The jury accordingly followed the constable to the back part of the premises, where the melancholy spectacle was revealed to them. Four bodies ...

TOWN TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

TOWN TALK. Tile following oxtract from the A rgas report of the parliamentary preeeedinga of the liSt inst., exemplifies very fully the amount of red tape which has to be unravelled before any of the Government oflicials can be led away from their ordinary avocations. Fully four weeks have now passed since Mr. Duly stated in the Assembly that orders had been issued for the survey of the enutrance to the Lakes by two efficient oficers. Nevertheless, it is only within this present week that one has started for the disputed ground, and the other as far as we can leanu has yet a considerable ball tf the sanguinary string to unwind before he co be at all prepared to mako an attempt to start Great bodies indeed more slowly: "TIE ENT?RNCR TO THE orIPPSLlND LAKES.

TO TlHE EDITOR OF THE GIPPSLAND TIMES. SIR,--Will you allow me through the columns of the Gippsland Times to correct a current report--that I refused to leave my house during the flood on Wednesday morning. I beg to state that the assertion is not true, as no help was proffered me by any one, nor had I any means of escape whatever from my perilous position until Mr. William Thomson, of Airly, came in his boat to my assistance, for which I return him my thanks publicly in the most heart- felt manner.

NEW ZEALAND GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 6 March 1863

NEW ZEALAND GOLDFIELDS. The past month hbts been a very stirring one, as far as mining has been concerned. The Lake diggings, as they are still called, have been extending in every direction, and the quantity of gold obtained has exceeded the most sanguine expectations. In our last summary, published on the 16th January, we noticed that the first escort from Lake Wakatipu had come to hand, bringing 8,303 ounces, and that some disappoint ment was felt at the smallness of the quantity, although it was at the same time known that 3,600 ounces had been taken to Invercargill. On the 23rd January, the next escort from the dig gings came to hand, bringing down 25,208 ounces, of which 13,072 ounces 15 pennyweights were from thoWakatipn field. This was an improvement, but it still fell short of expectations. This quantity had come by way of the Dunstan, but the next was to conic by an inde peondent escort, and it was expected that it would bring a largo quantity, Nor was that expectation unr...

DONNELLY'S CREEK. [Frnos A connttrosNDENv.] This week's news is very meagro, for,botween flooding out and Stringer's rush, the Works on the creeook are quite deserted. I have little to tell you of importance, with the oexception of recounting the loss by the late floods. We have escaped, I am thankful to say, without loss of lifo, but I aenn assure you that it will come pretty hard either on the miners or store keepers, for we all know that diggers are as improvident race of people, never layingby for a rainny day, but spending their all in the shanties. Good, bad, and middling paying claims are all alike. Spend, spend, spend, and IMonda:y or Tuesday, generally speaking, sees thems with empty pockets until another pad. dock is washed.

SALE POLICE COURT; Monday, 2nd March. Before N. Guthridge, A. Arbuckle, and R. Inglis, Esqrs., J.P.'s   Queen v. Brahe & Bischoff. Remanded on a charge of murder. Sergeant McDonald applied to the Bench to have both prisonors discharged, there being no supposi- tion now that they were in any way implicated in the murder; he had been up to Donelly's Creek, and, from diligent inquiries, he found that it would have been impossible for either of these men to have been at the scene of the murder at the time it was committed. They were accordingly discharged. ELLEN STEERS alias STACK v C. McLEAN, Assault. Plaintiff deposed that on Wednes-   day evening last, as she and her husband were coming front " the Creek" that she saw defen- dant opposite Mr. Clark's house, and that she said to her husband, "I will go over and ask Charly McLean what he has been saying about me." She went over and asked him very civilly if he had been talking about her, when, without ...
