Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840
Country NIews. WEST MAITLAND, FEB. 3.--From the effects of the last rain, which commenced on the 23d, and continued to the 29th ultimo, the river Hunter rose nearly to a level with the banks, and on the 31st overflowed in the lowest part of the land. With the exception of the awful appear- ance and consequent fears created that it would rise to a destructive height, I may say the town of Maitland has sustained no injury; but it is with sorrow I relate that a great many of the neighbouring farmers have lost their all. The greatest sufferers are the small settlers between East Maitland and Morpeth, as the land in this part of the country lies the lowest. Two or three heads of families have lost their lives in trying to extricate their property : one infant child was also drowned in the flood. The greatest loser is Mr. Turner. About three hundred acres of a most promising crop of maize is at the present moment under water, the greater part of which was planted in the low land that form...
