Quorn. December 13. After-the great heat we were visited 'on Sunday evening by a severe thunder storm and heavy rain, the lightning being most vivid, with loud thunder. About 4 p.m. heavy rain set in, and continued to fall till a late hour, Nearly all the creeks were flooded, and the railway lifle damaged slighily in vari ous places.; The rain must have fallen a good deal further North, as I hear of the line hating been damaged as far as Blackfellow's Creek. It is reported that about three inches of rain fell sit Mount jlrddn and various other places surroundings but only about 600 points fell here. The weather is very un settledr^-strong north winds, dust, and heat.-^ ?Register.
