* DENILIQUIN. Friday, May 18, 1800. Since our last, the country has been blest by the finest fall of rain that has occurred for eighteen months. The rain-gauge in Deniliquin having been thrown down during the storm, we have no record of the exact quantity, but over tivoinches'and a-half fell between Saturday and this inorning. Some light showers fell early on Saturday, and on Sunday after noon a soaker commenced and continued all night. Monday and Tuesday were fine, but on Wednesday night the rain set in in earnest, hnd continued for the hest part of Thursday. The ground has thus been soaked since Sunday, and already the grass is spring ing. The importance of the fall cannot be estimated except by those engaged in postoral pursuits. With out it, there mu'st-have been hard times for years. The destruction of itdck from absolute starvation would have been immense, whilst there.would have been no employmeat for shepherds, as the sheep must have been universally turned loose-feeding in ...

aoooet Iflurraumbi?gee. frnosc o0n owN connasrUoNENTm. THERR is but little etirring in the distriet just now of any interest to report, if I except the general break up of the drought, which ha had the effect of considerably foreshortening the previonely elon gated countenances of the squatters. On Sunday last, about ten p.m., the rain began to fall in ear nest, and continued, without intermission, for about twelve-hours, when the weather again cleared. On . Wednesday, however, the clouds again gathered, :nd, for about 48 hours, poured forth their contents in torrents, filling swamps, tanks, and waterholes in every direction. Since then, the weather has been tolerably fair, but cold, and still aslihtly threatening. This providential downfall will in deed prove a God-send to the settlers, and will be of inestimable value for the lambing season, which has alread commenced on some stations althou?hl not generally. But -for this welcome supply, the per cente in most flocks must have bee...

Local Intelligence. WESLEYAN TEA MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 26 May 1866
WESLEYAN TEA MEETING. ON Thursday last, the members of the Wesleyan body celebrated both the Queen's birthday and the first anniversary of the opening of their church, by a social gathering of their friends and members in a large booth which had been.erected in the.reserve adjoining the church. Double rowseof tables ran down the whole length of the booth, and around these were seated a large assemblage of happy guests. The rugged rafters of rough hewn saplings which supported the roof, and. the blank expanse of dead. looking canvas of which the walls were composed, were either wholly concealed or tastefully relieved with bushes and shrubs, and, when the candles were lighted and the tables were covered with the profusion of good things which, the ladies had pro vided, the whole effect was extremely pleasing. About two hundred persons sat down to tea, of whom a large proportion consisted of children, and, in addition to these, numbers of late comers were fain to content themselves wit...
