DISTRICT.: INTELLIGENCE. FROM OUR COIRErSPONDIENT.J GERRINGONG. - - August 1, 1860. RI-N, rain, is ithe order u-t f thle day but of nearly every day, till both muan and beast are tired of it. It rained nuearly all last week, and, after a few days snn .*hine, it set in again last nighlt, has been unceasing all to-day (Wednesday), andl looks so bad now that though writing this scrap for the Ezamoiner, I doubt if opportunity will offer to send it into town to morroig. There have been no high floods, lut on road and yard mud aroundsla, and in the splashly paddocks streamns nd pools iinnumerable. But I am sorry to say the weather has bea productive of worse con seqluenccs than the discomnforts of wet fooeet and all plervading dampness, for it has canused the death of cattle. Soveral of Mr. Ilerry's tonants livingon ex posed swamp farms ihave beer. heavy losers through it. Nearly every one of the dairy herd of M[r. G.

MIISCELLANEOUS EXTRAC'TS. ----+--- REARKAnBLE ESCAPE.-Aun accident, the serious consequences of which were averted bya remarkable instance of courage and presence of mind, occurred on the Hampshire Roof at Plea sant Creek, a day or two since. A party were working in a shaft about 180 feet deep; one man was at the windlass; a backet of mullock was comingup, and a man going down at the same time. When the bucket of dirt was about 20 feet from the bottom and the man the same distance from the top, from some cause connected with the hook the. bucket slipped off and fellto the bottom. The counterbalancing weight being taken off, caused a violent shock to the windlass which jerked the handle out of the hands of the man who was lowering his companion, and the windlass commenced revolving with fearful ra pidity; the cross piece was violently thrown on, and ws very nearly goinglown the shaft on the top of the man on his way down.

All the circumstauoes relating, or supposed to relaste, to LeiChhardt's party, few and slight though they be, extend over a period of a dozen years, and tile present is not an unfit time to arrange them in coonnected form. In 1848, Dr. Leiehhlardt left Sydney, on Iris last expedition. During 1845, while Leich hardt was on his inmense journey to the Gulf of Carpentaria and Port Essiorgton, Sir Thomras MIitchell Irad conducted oin expedition into Cen tral Australia, and brought back intelligence of a great river--the Victoria--flo...
