WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1860

WEA&'Itseei-'O last onday this' toxn was visited by an unusually heavy fall of rain. The shower was not fortunately of long continuance; yet while it lasted the streets and low places pre sentdd the appearance of rivers an'd lakes; We have now quite a sulliciency of rin for the pr'sent. We regret to hear that several have had their wheat crops injured by the wet weather, those who were not fortunate enough to have it securely hooded before the coming of the rain. But whatever in jury may have been done by the rain to some, is amply counterbalanced by good to others. This neighborhood now everywhere puits on a verdant hue, quite exhilirating to behold.

NoW, Sli, I would remind tilo " Backwoodsman," that although lie chose so remote a corner to hide his unwanton attacks ihi, he is not altogether unknown to a desiring few.

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. FOX GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1860

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE, (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) 'FOX GROUND. I notice in yorr .paper of the 4th instant, a letter, signed " Backwoodsman," wishing some information concerning the Gerringong grievances with tlldhe Kiama municipality. It would appear by the tenor of his letter that he was the happiest of all beings, and not left a fither's care, and still under the fond caresses of a mother's affection ; but the picture hl has painted will not do. Let us remove the screen, and see the aictor in his real character. Will he come forward.? No. But by the glimmering light at a distance, we see him, as it were, pen behind Ihs ear, representing himself as a bushma-n. If w?oonly knew his address, we would place him in some honorary ofllice when we have a municipality of our own. Perhaps it would be as remunerative as the' one he now holds. If " Backwoodsman" were only to traverse our roads a few times, he would not want to kinow what grioevances we complained of. But, perhaps, lie would be...

The Christmas eve thlunderstorm ocourred on the first day of the present moos, and, as not unfreqiently happens when a marked change occurs on the lay of the new moon, the weather since continued of a broken character, marked by frequent storms.

JAMBEROO. Since Christmas day, the dry weather, whose long. continuance has caused many a wlstful look to theheavens above and the earth beneath, bad been exchanged, until within the last day or twro, for what some people werie beginning to regard as a plague of immoderate rain and waters, and the condition of our roads has again forced itself upon our attention and extorted many an expres sion of impatience in regard to that Ihalf-mythical "good time coming" when there shall be "an highway for the opeoplo" that may be worthy of tihe name. Tihe main road through the settlement of Jamberoo is proba bly, in wet weather, as bad as any piece of the same lenath from the northern boundary of the municipality to tie town of Kiama; and it appears likely that its im provement will be retarded by as manly dlfficulties andcl. obstructions as the most cordial enemy of improvement could desire.

From the decomposed state of the bodyit was apparent that the man must have been dead for several days. I believe the coroner held an in quest, and made apoSf mortems examinatioin of the body, but I have not heard the verdict.
