SOUTHERN DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 27 June 1857
SOUTHERN DISTRICTS. [Abridged from the Qoutburn vapert.) Tin Weather, the Roads, and the Mails. — Tbe mail which left Sydney on Tuesday had not arrived when we went to prosB last night. The weather in tho neigh bourhood of Goulburn has focn very wet, the streets aro iu a frightful condition ; hut the state of tho roads in tho direction of Svdnev is such i»b to put almost a ttop altogether to communication. We know of ono gentle man who declares ho has been a fortnight wading his way up through the mud, and boasts of tbe feat. An adven- turous young Jehu, who readied Picton in two days from Goulburn, is regarded as a marvel of roadsters. Rut really tbe mutter is becoming a very serious one. Put ting aside tho mail question, the Injury to business is enormous. Carriers aro delayed beyond all ptocedent, and it is not wonderful that freight should havo risen to such a figure. We are afraid that somo of our store keepers won't receive their winter goods until summer has set in I When Ins...

We regret to say thoy show a more terrible picture of devastation and ruin. Sufficient is now known to assure us that we have not yet known the worst. In eight and forty hours a thriving agricultural district has been converted into a desolate sea. The comfortable cottage and the cultivated field have disappeared beneath the terrible deluge ; and wo cannot calculate the number of those who havo escaped only with their lives. No caso of suffering could occur with profouuder claims on the sympathies and charities of the people at large. Ono of tho high moral etTects of theuc disasters is the sound feeling...
