ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864
ROCKHAMPTOU. We have Northeni news in the E. Bulletin to the olh instant. The fuelinff against tiiB nreseut Jlinistrv seems to he rampant as ever on the banks of the Fitzroy ; iudeed. it is asipiificaut fact that every journal in this colony — onr friends tlie Guardian auJ Q. Times, ofeourze. excepted — is loua m in its complaints agaiust the Herbert cabal on the score or local grle vanres, and glaring abuses, and shameless disregard for the in terests 'f the people. It is nut easy to comprehend thtt inducement which satisfies four men to persist in 'holding office, while from all quarters a storm of reprobation la hurled at their heads.

She gale, the flood, and the consequences. BRISBANE. As we anticipated U out last issue, the equinoctial gale, in a few honrs brought down the much dreaded visitor that has been threatening us for the last month. The event may tie regarded as one of those dread calamities which cannot he forestalled liy human skill or precaution,— when the fearful forces of nature are let loose upon the earth, and the pony works oT art are shivered aud swept any in overwhelming tHestroctton. The storm may be said to have com menced on Thursday at mid-day, and it gradually increased in violence until about tiro o'clock on Saturday morning. when it culminated in a hurricane before which houses, trees, chimneys, and a host of other obstructions fall in prostrate ruin. The wind was not a steady wind; it blew not with a consistent ferae enabling objects to brace themselves, as. it were, against its extensive violence. Bat it came on in gosts sudden and fearful. like the continued shock of a cannonade or ...
IPSWICH. Tuesday Morning. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864
IPSWICH. fFBOX ODE OWN COB.RE5POKDEHT.1 Tuesday Morning. To describe the various scenes attendant on the late disastrous flood wonld not only be a task of much difficulty, bnt at the same time be- far from conveying to the reader anything like the reality; therefore, I will only give s brief sketch of what Uas oc curred. Late on Friday evening last the rain came down in torrents, and continued throughout the jugbt mceompjm«4»-«»» Ugfe wind, » sure foreboding of a rise in the river soon, especially as it had been raining more or less during the two previous days. On the morrow, as we expected, the river had risen to an nnusnal height, and still continued to do so with a rapidity that nut only created the fears of those who possessed stores on tbe bank, but seriously alarmed many whose dwellings were threatened with destruction sooner or later. At an early hour families might have been seen quitting their abodes — some in camps surrounded by their household goods ; and in many cases o...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE North AUSTRLIAN Office, Friday Evening [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864
(Suuiwtrrial gntellidtiue Nobth Acsieauak Office, Friday Eveuinc Is our March Summary for Europe, we reported a general depression of trade, from the then prevailing inclemency of the wea ther. For some fourteen days immediately succeeding the period of that issno, the same unsettled state of skies continued, which, coupled with a flood, almost unparalleled in the history of the colony, rendered business. if possible, still more stagnant. The wea ther of the last two weeks of the month has, however, been settled in character, and boEi -ness has just begun to assume its wonted activity. This week, the change has been mostinarked. and but for tbe unfortunate occurrence of a fire of great magnitude, we should have to report a com plete ' restoration of our commercial spirit and buoyancy. Communication with the interior is now perfectly restored, and supplies of stock and produce, which were delayed by the impassable state of the roads, are now being freely sent in.

The following particulars of the recent floods in the Fiiz Boy and itsbutariet tris, appear in the Bulletin's issue of the 22nd instant : — Saturday broke brilliantly, thesun bcatine hotly down and silvering the vast sheets of water environing the town. Owing to the sloppy state of the ground the evaporation was excessive, and the atmosphere cave that heavy, warm, oppressive sensation with which the Bengalee is familiar.

MARYBOROUGH [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864
MABYBOROCGH. We extract the following account of the flood in the Mary Biver from tho Mary borough Chronicle's supplement of the 21st instant :— We have to chronicle the greatest flood thnt has visited these parts since first the white man settled here, and we are f.orry to add the most disastrous, tbongli tho fall extent of that disaster is not yet known to us. At present all that is known to us is of Maryborough aud its immediate vicinity. We shall have to wait fur tidings from the up-country before we can publish a full re cord of the calamitous event, our notes now will be therefore brief. For some weeks past there has been daily a heavy rainfall, and on one occasion tbe water rose high enough in the river to over flow its bank, and flood the lowest of tbe lands adjacent to tlie river, but the extent and consequent damage on this occasion n-as bnt small, and two or three days of cue clear weather at the beginning of last week led us to hope that ilUu-»r of * flood tbis season wa...
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864
DESTRUCTIVE FIEE. ONE of the most serious fires which has oc- curred in the history of the colony broke ott on Queen-street yesterday morning about four o'clock. Sergeant Lang, of the police force, was on duty at the time, and discovered smoke issuing from the roof of the premises of Mr. E. W. Fegan, wine and spirit merchant. He immediately gave the alarm, and shortly afterwards the entire constabulary force, then in barracks, were on the spot, the fire bell in the mean time being kept incessantly ringing. The town and its environs was soon in a state of alarm, and almost the entire population of the north side were quickly on the spot. In the mean time the flames, fed by the in- flammable fuel in the store, spread with frightful rapidity, and a forked tongue of fire shot high above the houses surmounted by a dense volume of smoke. In a short time Sergeant Hawkes arrived with a detachment of the 12th Regiment, and several members of the Volunteer Artillery were also in atten- dance,...
ARRIVAL OF THE PRINCE CONSORT. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864
ARRIVAL OF THE PRINCE CONSORT. The Black Ball Liner Prince Consort, Captain Aicheson, commander, arrived in Hervey's Bay on Wednesday, the 30th of March, after a very fair run from Ply- mouth, which port she left on the 24th of December last. Her captain report that he was for three days beating about Plymouth, and only passed the Eddystone Light- house on the 27th. Thence till he arrived off Moreton Island on the 21st of March, he &nbsp; &nbsp; had a continuance of fair winds and favor- able weather. The passage hence to Her- vey's Bay is described as having been dirty and disagreeable — the ship having to beat about under contrary winds to Wednesday morning. The Montrose, from Liverpool to Sydney, thirty-two days out, and all well on board, was spoken during the passage. The Prince Consort received her cargo and portion of her passengers in the East India Docks, London, which she left to move down to Gravesend on the 13th December. Her passengers amounted on starti...
NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864
IfOTSS .AJCOVD JSTEWS. Ocra Summary issued to-day, for trans mission from the colony, is the largest newspaper hitherto published in Queens land. Much might be said concerning its compilation and contents to interest the carious ; but labouring nnder tho dis advantage of ' blowing onr own trumpet,' to us auvtbinir bat a congenial occupation. n shall content ourselves by observing on one fact, of which so large a publication is an evidence. Four years and a half ago, it was difficult to find sufficient information of importance in Moreton Bay, to fill four pages of a weekly journal ; now, a conden sation of such news as was then furnished fills twelve pages in a month. In other worths, making allowance forthe summarised form of the information, the news of the colony has increased more than four fold. The past month ha* no doubt been exceptional, in supplying a larger mass of intcrestiug information than is usual, and we could not promise to keep up so balky a record of each month; b...
