March 18. i The Darling is now, and has been for some j considerable time past, a chain of stagnant \ water holes, almost unfit to drink. There is i at present no signs or prospects of any rise in | the river. The weather has been very hot i and dry, and rain is now much wanted. A ; great quantity of last year's wool is still on the j stations, which makes things very dull just j now. The Mo&lgewanke, Maranoa, Lady j Augusta, Jolly Miller, and leviot, steamers, are all still locked up in the river, and it may be manv months before they are released. Cartage from Wentworth to Mount Murchison is £-25 per ton. There have been bushrauging, horse-stealing, and robberies of all descriptions carried on lately in this locality.

THE BARRIER RANGES GOLDFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 30 March 1867

THE BARRIER RANGES GOLDFIELD. The following letter is from our own cor respondent at Mount Murchison, and may be confidently relied upon as an accurate account of all that is known in that locality about the gold discovery at the Barriers : — Wiicannie, Mount Murchison, March 18, 1867. As I see by tbe Adelaide papers there is some little excitement respecting the reported gold discovery in the Barrier Ranges, I will endeavor to furnish you with what little par ticulars about them have come to hand. It will be remembered that some years back Captain Crawford was sent by the Adelaide Government in charge of a party to explore the Harriers for gold. He came up by one of the steamers to Culparline Station, near Moant Murchison, and went out from there to the Harriers, but I believe was unable to explore much for want of water — it being a very dry season, and the expedition was broken up. I heard no more of it until about Christtnas, when a man from one of the back stations came to this...

MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT AT TROUBRIDGE LIGHTHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 30 March 1867

MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT AT TROU- BRIDGE LIGHTHOUSE. [From the Register of March 23.]   It is a matter for serious alarm that during the past two years so many lives hare been lost by drowning in the Gulf. Now another report reaches us of half a dozen people — all young and hearty — falling victims to the deceitful element. Not a soul was left to describe the event ; but the colla- teral evidence is tolerably clear and conclusive. From the particulars gleaned, it appears the two keepers' wires belonging to the Troubridge Light- house, who had been paying a visit to friends in the Port, sailed in the schooner Omeo on Monday, bound to Salt Creek, where arrangements had been made to transport them to the lighthouse in a fishing-boat belonging to Mr Hook. The 20th JJKK being a fine day, the Head Keeper (Mr Omond) and Second Keeper (Sir Tapley) set sail in the Lightship's boat to fetch their relatives. Charles Brown (the Third Keeper), who remained at the house, watched his compa...

TERRIFIC HURRICANE AT CLEVE LAND BAY. I From tbe Express, 9th March.! On Sunday morning a strong gale blew from the W.S.W., aud to the weather wise this gave a warning of some great disturbance of the atmosphere that would be followed by something unusual in these latitudes. As the hours flew by, so increased the anxiety of our townspeople. At 12 o'clock the gale increased cjusiderably, coming in fearful gusts, accom panied by heavy rain. Up to this time no damage of consequence was done to property ; but now JEalus belched forth his mighty winds, aud spread ruin and desolation around. The wind veering round to the S.S.W., and continuing steadily to shift round the compass, increased the anxiety of all. At 2 o'clock the hurricane seemed at its greatest height.
