IPSWICH Wednesday morning. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 31 March 1864

IPSWICH. (FBOM OCB OWN COEEESrOKDKKT.) Wednesday mornini. The recent flood should ho a timely warning to all, more particularly so to those who have to do with public works. None of ns know (perhaps Lieut. Saxbey -does) how soon we may again be visited by another, which may be higher, and cause far greater disasters than have already been committed ; of course, the contrary is wished, and may many years elapse before we are again tion by so nn welcome a visitor. We 'all know that this colony at certain periods is likely to be visited with heavy storms of rain for days and weeks together, ending generally in the accumulation of its waters in localities most inom-etiient. and destroy ing, in many cases, the labours of a season. True, we cannot rule the elements, bnt surely much could be done to pnard against the attendant losses, which, should we be visited with another flood next year of the same height, the destruction will be far greater, than the one of late. In several places the...

MABYUOKOCGH. We extract the following account of the flood in the Mary Biver from the Mary borough Chronicle's supplement nf the -1st instant : — We have to chronicle the greatest flood that has visited these parts since first the white man settled here, and we are fcorry to add the most disastrous, though the full extent of that disaster is not yet koown to us. At present all that is known to us is of Maryborough and its immediate vicinity. AVe shall have to wait for tidings from the np-conntry before we can publish a f nil re cord of tlie calamitous event, our notes now will be therefore brief. For some weeks past there has been daily a heavy rainfall, and ou nns occasion the water rose high enough iu the river to over flow its bank, and flood the lowest of the lands adjacent to the river, but the extent and consequent damage on this occasion was but small, and two or three days of fine dear weather at the beginning of last week led us to hope that all danger of a flood this seaso...

On Saturday the 2Gth March, tile return cricket match between tbe Dalliy and Toowoomba clnbs, came off on the gronud at the rear of the Town Hall.

In the first innings, tbe play was not good on either side, which aroSe no donbt from the constant rain which prevented practice beforehand, but iu the second innings, there was a decided improvement, The Dalby eleven, plucked with their recent victory, were pretty sanjroiue of success, but their first score of S, threw a damper «n them, and .they. iveiiLt_.io U»0- *ickets on eeouud wnreirft3r'*™r^c^i*~nT~I'IJo'woT5lBBa'Was first innings ill. seend ditto 37; tot...

The North Australian. SATURDAY APRIL 2, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 2 April 1864

%\t |i'ovt| gnstraliBir. SATURDAY. APRIL 2. 1SG4. We are not surprised now ai the devo tion shown by the gentlemen, who huddle together under the wing of the Colonial Secretary, to their chief. The reward is a rich one. If we were not afraid oF the accusatiou of profanity, we might almost be tempted to exclaim. ' to whom much is given, from him ranch shall be required.'1 Mr. J. D. McLean is a rich man, and, naturally enough, desires to have Btili more. 'Jock wants more ' — and he gets it. As perhaps the most substantial sup porter of the present Administration in the Assembly, he is entitled to a great donation as he is also bound to render them an efficient service. He does ren der them that aid, and he gets his reward. This accords with what Philo sopher Sqcbe&s called the eternal fitness of things. And Mr. McLean gets from onr wise, and patriotic, and states manlike Government some eleven or twelve thousand acres of land at the agset price ; when, if that laud had been pa...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE NORTH AUSTRALIAN OFFICE, Friday Evening [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 2 April 1864

-£BJrawrriaI |nfelltjptt. Noeth Australia* Office, Friday Evening. Bnt a very slight improvement in the state of trade may be said to have taken place during the past week, although the weather has undergone a favorable, and we hope, a permanent alteration. This depression is attributable to the effects of the late flood, most parties engaged in extensive business being occupied in attending tn their immedi ate interests, which have suffered in some degree fromtheinclemencyof the past month. Should, however, the present fine weather continue, we may antieipate a steady re action, and a resuscitation of bnsiness gratifying to all. Appended are the usual monthly retnrns of there venae received at the ports of Brisbane, Jpswich, and Port Denison. They exhibit % serions falling off from that received dur ing the preceding month.

Early in the day some sharp showers passed; the heat during the intervals ntung most oppressive.. Late in tbe evening the atmosphere became beautifully clear; tbe heat had given way to a more coot and refreshing breeze, while the vast arch of heaven glittered with its myriads of tiny luminaries bespeaking for the morrow a day of sunny skies.

With that impression on my mind, I wended my way to the Forum, or Court house, believing it to be the only ark of safety within the possibility of my reach in such an emergency. As soon as I had reached within sight of the building I could easily perceive by the dangerous and dilapi dated state of its exterior that JEolus was at war with the god of the ocean in trying to gain tbe prize of uprooting the tempo rary temple «f jurisprudence. After finding my way across the shattered bulworks of the building, and having got myself seated in presence of the bench, ...
