THE GAWtER FLOODS. Retcbn of the Water Police. Eight of the Port Adelaide water police, who were dispatched to Gawler on Wednesday morning with lifeboata and other life saving appliances, returned to the Fort on Thurs day. There was some little consternation at Gawler among the residents when the water police arrived, conveying three boats, three lifebuoys, and fonr sets of drags. Places where pertona a few hours before could walk on tena firma had been converted into veri table lagocDB and pocde, while the current of water was mmenqo_8, ana proved tne greatest obstacle to the police ia the discharge of their duties. Our Port reporter obtained the folio wing statement on Thursday morning from Water Constable Burke, who is stationed at the Port:— 'We left Port Adelaide by the 7.10 a m. train on Wednesday .morning, and reached Gawler at 9 a.m. It was blowing and raining furiouBly, and part of the railway-line between Smithheld and Salisbury was oovered with water.

THE REEDBEDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
THE REEDBEDS. To fully appreciate the extent of damage caused by the recent floods one has only got to p*y a visit to the Beedbeds and its neighbor hood, and as the storm waters have now con siderably Bubsided a much better idea can be gained than was previously the cobb, A repre sentative of The Advertiser drove down to Henley Beach on Friday, and in the course of bis travels was able to glean a good deal of in formation regarding the loss to property, both public and private, and of the damage caused by the vast body of water that rushed down the Torrens and spent itself in the low lying lands around the Beedbeds, before flow ing into the Port River and the Patawalonga Greek. From the time of leaving Mile-End, the Henley Beaoh-road bore evidence, every few yards, of the severe treatment to which it had been subjected. The 'blinding' has nearly everywhere been washed away, and the rough usage that the tramline met with is now apparent. From early morning the employe's of the Hindma...

Qoxxtzymbtntz. (For other Correspondence seepage 6.) BAKER'S CREEK GOLD MINE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— I note the letter of 'Anxious,' and being like him anxious, well, I am anxious ' to knock the shares' a bit. I have followed his example and got together a few rumors which, have leaked out through unofficial sources* having carefully avoided making enquiry from the legal manager. First, it is stated that there is danger of the creek taking fire, in which caEe there would be no water for crush ing ; next, tbat in getting an anvil down the cliff it broke away, and falline down the shaft knocked the bottom clean out of the reef, and that the manager, having constructed a diving bell from an inverted kibble, is now down searching for it, having with him a dog chain with which to tie it up if found. It is also rumored that some evil-disposed person came in the night and carried o& the new battery in a wheelbarrow. I quite agree with ' Anxious' that if all these perils are hanging ov...
EDEN VALLEY, APRIL 10. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
EDEN VALLEY. April 10. The splendid rains this month have made the farmers rejoice. Although we had over five inches of rain last week and one inch already this week no damage has been done worthy of mention. In the North Rhine distriot, about six miles from here, the floods had more effect, as several traffio and foot bridges were washed away by the floods of April 2. I am also glad to Bay that the Murray flats around Sedan, Towitta, Rhine Villa, Sandlewood, and other places were covered with water, Sedan had 4 feet of water running through it, and lakes are to be seen a mile in circumference ; people are using troughs for boating purposes. Tbe grass is springing up beautifully, and I have seen wheat sown this day week which is already up 1 inch.— Special sermons were preached in the South Rhine Church on Sunday last by the Rev. Mr. Newbold, of Truro, on account of the promising season. On Monday a tea meeting was held in the same church, and a public meeting following, when addres...
DEATH-RATE AT BROKEN HILL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
DEATH-RATE AT BROKEN HILL. TO TEE EDITOB. Sir — Hearing from time to time the moat ab surd reports as to the death-rate at Broken Hill, I have been led to forward you the num ber of burials that have taken place in the Broken Hill Cemetery for the last nine months, viz.— July, 27; August, 16; September, 28 j Oc tober, 20 ;Nb vember,30 ; December, 56 ; January; 42;. February, 32; March, 39 ; total, 290. 101 of these are of children under two years of age, 31 underl5,and82 under 40. The highest number buried in one day is six. The last returns col lected by the police of the number of inhabi tants gave 12,000, I believe. There have been about six buried at Round Hill, and a number have gone away to 'die ; yet I thinkthe death rate is in no way equal to what people would lead ub to believe. — I am, &c,, ALPHA. Eroken Hill, April 15, 1889,
