REFLECTIONS ON THE FLOOD. iThas pleased Providcnce to visit us with a ter rible calamity. In the midst of our security, and ? ivhen wo had the .least expectation of such a catastrophe, tho waters have come down upon us, bearing with Ihom an amount of loss and ruin -which 'is utterly incalculable. No one in tins dis trict will altogether escape loss ; — all of ua will be mQre or less sufferers. The district will not, enterely recover from the disastrous uffecta of the late floods for .two or three years tn come. In another article we have pointed out the best oourse to pursue with respect to the sufferers. ]Every one is willing to lend a helping hand ; the ,ouly thing to be considered is the adoption 0f the most effectual plan f»r affording relief. Many opinions — somo of them absurd enough — have been broached as to the causes of the flood. It has been said that a waterspout buret some where about tlie head of the I'aterson.

MORPETIf, On Friday night the river, which In the morning had somewhat subsided, again rose, although the Paierson river was not so high The rise in the HuuUr at Mor peth was occasioned by the fresh rise in the river at Maitland on Friday.

WHAT IS TO BE DONE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 24 June 1857
?WHAT 13 TO BE DONE. After the visitation of a great calamity sucli as we have just experienced, the prevalent feeling nnd enquiry amongst all classes is, 'what is tolie 'done to provide for the future.' The flood (which is happily now subsiding) lias carried de vastation over the fields and into the dwellings of the working man. By one fell swoop he has had the result of his labour borne away, and all his past earnings swallowed np by the ruthless ele ment. lie is left without provision for himself .mrV'faniily. The picture of ruin ivould be suf ficiently desolato if individual losses alone formed its chief objects, but with the destruction of those fertile crops for which the Hunter District has been long famed, and the abandonment of the in dustry which has raised them, must arise an amount of suffering from vOiich no class or mem ber of the community can . escape. .It behoves, therefore, all, both as a matter which demands the exercise of charity, as well as of interest, to lead...

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. TnE Postmaster-General. — On Sunday. Major Christie returned by the City of Sydney from Victoria, whither ho lately proceeded as ono of the numbers of the Conference which mot in Melbourne to consider the subject of Inter-colonial Steam and Postal communica tiou. Sisoular Accident. — On Sunday a rather novel cir cumstance occurred on the Coo igee-road, which might have be«'n attended with serious cnnsrquencvs. Two gentUm-n wero riding in the above locality, when they saw bearing towards them a forc'gn gentleman, who re. j quested they would render him s mie assistance, as he was sure that he had burst a blood vessel. The gentle- I men, much alarmed, caused tho sufferer who had Katuted | them to get off his horse, when, on unbuttoning his coat, they discovered that the inner part of it and his waist coat were iu a complete flame. It is most likely the fire originated in sparks from a cigar ho had been smoking falling on his necktie, and thence to his pocket kerch...
