WOLLOMBI. On the I 'It li instant vrr were visited bv twenty-four hours incessant rain, but this was sucreoiiod by Mich a ll »od of the Wollomhi Brook, Stockyard, nnd Wrr.»ng ('reeks as was seen in October, 1K4I. It has corcrnd the land for miles round, and the damage done i« incalcu lable, nnd when the plough can got to work ngain, it will be hard to fay, r.S it will bo bog;y for weeks to come. I am of opinion that the wheat crop of next season from this district will be very -mall. To recnpitulnt* the amount of damage would be a hard task — fences of the farmers lands are destroyed, in some places altogether s this, though a heavy loss and incon venience, is but secondary to the present state of the Crossing pi ices of the brook.

Sir — In the last issue of your paper there appeared an article relative to the late calamity, which stated that I had removed the Widow Garraty from her residence.

Sim and George Sutcliff for the perseverance and untir- ing energy displayed by them in relieving the distress of their fellow creatures and saving the stock in Narrowgut on Thursday last. The thanks of the people of Morpeth are also due to P.

Th*s district was visited, on Tuesday last, hy ono of I the most terrific K.E. gales we ever recollect, which coti- I tinued all Wednesday, accompanied by a denso aud con tinuous torrent of rain. Tho rush ot wind was inconceivably terrific, and it drove before it immense bodies uf wat-r, that thoroughly Hooded the crocks, swept along the roads and streets in streams, and ponetrnud into evoiy building to a greater . or Uss degree. Stalwart trees in the bush were uprooted, swept away by the raging storm, as if they weie slender twigs, and striking and killing cattlo in their fall in some instances. Huge branches were wrenched off the trunks of trees that would not yield to the tempest, and whisked away through the air as if they were withered leaves. The Band off the sea shore was drifted in clouds into the paddocks adjoining the beach, making it evident that, if some precautionary measures arc not soon taken, nnd w...

A MASQUERADE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 27 June 1857

A MASQUERADE. Prf. pa nations are in active progression by the leadin' actors of the political drama to open the house with sonic new pieces which abound in startling effects. It is true the incidents are rather hackneyed — and some of the performers new to their character — but there will be found such a pleasing confusion of plot aud counterplot that the public must indeed be fastidious if they do not applaud. S me of the disguises are said to be so perfect that it will be impossible to recognise the actor — indeed a complete masquerade is to be the order of the day. Incredulous as it may appear, Parker (not the professor) and bis troupe are rehearsing a grand political drama, in live acts, to be entitled the Electoral Kill. Act the first opens with a grand stage eflect — forty new members are to be sum moned on the parliamentary boards. What a Tori'eous vision is here conjured up for the mind of the ambitious spectator. Every one can fancy himself anM.P. in embryo, aud already se...
