THE WEATHER AT WOLLONGONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
THE WEATHER AT WOLLONGONG. Last Tuesday's Mercury says: It is al most impossible to state the asmount of da mage inflicted, but scarcely a house in town has been free from its effects. The bridge .near Higgins', Mount Keira Inn, was washed away, thereby preventing all communication witll the Dapto side, except by crossing the creek at a point some dis tance to the West of the Dapto Road, a task not unattended with danger.. At Bol lambi both jetties received some damage, although, fortunately, not to any great ex tent, being confined to the washing away of two piers. Of course the new breakwater has not escaped, and it would be a wonder if it had, for never has tlhe sea broken with such violence as during the present gale. The sume paper, of Friday, continues: Although the wind has abated, yet there are no certain indications that the weather is settled, the raiin falling at intervals both day and niight. With reference to the Bulli jetty we regret to ascertain that the injury inflic...
SHELLHARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
SIIELLIIAIBOR. (PRO OUR CORnnrPONDENT.) I porceive two communications in your issue of 14th instant,--one signed "A. Guest," the other "A Correspondent," both of whom appear greatly surprised at me for neglccting to report the " dinner and dance" which took place in the mill on the evening of the Queen's birthday. No'w, Sir, if there he any blame to any ano, I attribute it all to yp'O yourself, for this reason: you never' tol. se to clhroiicle weddings and social' gatherings on private occasions. Publib events of local interest are what you wislied to be recorded. But I think the gentlemen referred to eannot have boon long in Sliellharbor, or they would not hano let other pieces of news slip that have occurr&d from time to time. For instance, Mrs. Wilsod bartered with a settler's wife for ninehturckeys, upon the following conditfnas v~iz.-that she (Mrs. 'Wilson) was to give thedother Sydiey mar keot price, deducing freight, &c., but alas i a storm came and they, coop...
GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
GOULBURN. On Friday morning last, rain commenced falling and continued without intermission until last night (Sunday). On Saturday, the Mulwarre Ponds and theV.ollondilly rose rapidly, and in the evening fears of a flood were entertained. Yesterday, the'ponds and river continmied rising until about 3 o'clock, when the flood reachled.its greatest height, being then some inches over the Fitzroy Bridge.: Mr. Blacksliiw, of the .Foston Brewery, who lives on the other' side of the Malwarre, just opposite the Market-square, and his family were brought over in a boat, as were also another family living in an adjacent house, the flood having risen to the windows of thle second story of each house. The amount of damage done is not yet kziown, but it is supposed 'to be considerable. Sheep, pigs, cows, hay, casks,- and various articles are floating down the stream. There is every reason to believe thlit three men (carriers) hlave been drowned. The water is now fialling rapidly, and all danger ...

RATHER STRANGE, IF TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
RATrnn STRAnGE,, IP TFU.-It waS Tre ported in town, yesterday, that two of the largest alligators yet seen in the waters of the Fitzroy, by that mythical individual, the oldest inhabitant, were observed taking, a piscatorial ramble along the north bank of the river, about seven miles above the Falls. The monsters were trackeda consi derable distance, by some lucky diggers lately returned f$p m the Peak Downs, who had been out for a day's shooting and coming on the"si n,"one of the party,a Ken tucky man named Flint, took up the trail and, in company with his mates, stitlked tihem up to the centre of a scrcub; one of the men through fright or excitement foolishly discharged his gun at the nearest monster, whereupon he deliberhtely turned round and showed fight, makinog use of the most unearthly noises ; the man, meanwhile made tracks for the nearest tree which hlie fortunately. succeeded in being able to climb to a sufficient height out of harm's way, for the time being, as the sequel...
SILK CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
SILK OULTIVATION. At the last annual dinneor' bf th Agricul tural Society, liis .Excelldcy Sir John Youig alluded in his speech to' the:cultiva tion of silk as a branch qf industry that 'might be carried o sivith a'dvantago. in.this colony; and .dwelt upon the numerous re commendations in its favour i-that .the producti n was one requiring very little labour-that it could bo 'committed to young people and to females-that it only occupie~ thirty-fivo or forty days in the courseo of the year-that being carried on in buildings .it was not' exposed to the climate in.the same way that other kinds of cultivation were-that the mulberry ,grew luxuriantly in Australia-and that no possible amount of silk.' that could be thrown into the market would ever meet the demaind for it. Thesoeimportant in. ducements in connection with the recent failure in the coreal crops, and the continual complaints of- want of employment for young persons, appear likely to bring the cultivation of. silk into favou...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
THI inumlier of calamities of a great and :striking magnitude which have occurred in various parts of the world, and within a comparatively brief space of time, has become such .at the present moment as may naturally induce that class of per sons, whose imagination delights to recur to the supernatural and incomprehen sible, to indulge the vague and terrible notion, that some great change is about to take place in the economy of the uni verse, or in ordinary language, that the world is likely to be soon brought to an end. The destruction of cities and temples by earthquakes, by the eruption of new volcanoes, or:by the almost equally stupendous results of human folly and ambition, provoking, as it were, the de structive powers of the elements; the reiterated outbreak of stupendous inun dations throughout the wide interior of this continent, its rivers expanding them selves in some instances to the dimen sions of an ordinary province; the yet unmitigated fury of the wide-spread and de...

WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
WINDSOR. When day broke .on Sunday morning, it appeared as if the whole of the surround ing country was converted into an oceimn, so frightfully rapid had the waters risen, that from the barrack-gates in Windsor to Ansell's house, near 'the top of M3'Grath'e Hill, there extended an immense sheet of water rushing madly over the Fitzroy Bridge, houses, telegraph-posts, and all the many improvements whtich the industry of man had raised, and so had the foaming element overflowed the banks of the Hawkesbury River, that the water rose up to the side -of Dr. Day's old. residence, carrying before it'the 'homesteads, furni ture, and farming implements--the hard earned property of many an honest settler. A. great portion of Wilberforce was under' water. T. Monday, 12. noon. The waters rose about seven feet during, the night, 'and are nows upwards of fifty; feet above high water nark.
