THE SLAVE TRADE ON THE EAST COAST OF AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 4 May 1861

THE SLAVE TRADE ON THE EAST COAST OF AFRICA. Mr. Rigby, English Consul, at Zanzibar, in a letter dated August 23, sends to the Governor of the Cape some interesting infor- mation with reference to the Eastern Coast of Africa. Captain Speke had arrived at Zanzibar on the 17th of August, and was about to proceed upon his expedition. Mr. Rigby adds :—   ' Dr. Roscher, a young German, who left Zanzibar in June last year, to explore the Lake of Nyassa, was murdered on the 19 th   of March last, and his two murderers were beheaded here this morning. He reached Nussera, on the east coast of the Lake of Nyassa, on the 19 th of November, and re- mained there nearly four months, being treated with the greatest kindness by the Sultan and all the inhabitants. On the 16th   of March he left Nussera to go up the River Rovooma, accompanied only by two negro servants, and with no arms but a revolver. On the third day's march, while resting at a village, they w...

AN ENGLISHMAM LYNCHED IN MISSISSIPPI. (From the Missouri Democrat.)

THE MORPETH FRANCH RAILWA BILL [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 8 May 1861

THE MORPETH BRANCH RAILWAY BILL. We have observed with some surprise the op- position this bill encountered in the assembly on its second reading, on Friday night last, and were still more surprised at some of the grounds of objection urged against this mea- sure. At the same time it must be confessed that this question has been tampered with from beginning to end, and considerably dam- nged by the false step originally taken by its promoters, when they sought to make it a Government scheme, under the disinterested auspices of the ''Hunter River Ministry.'' Since then it has suffered no less from the blundering incapacity of those who, unfortu- nately for its success as a scheme of private enterprise, have been entrusted with its man- agement. Whilst it remained a measure in the hands of the Government, we offered it all the opposition in our power, but no sooner did we perceive it repudiated by the house as such, and that it was taken up as a matter of private enterprise by those i...

ONE DAY LATER NEWS BY THE GREAT BRITAIN.   (From the Herald's Melbourne Correspondent, by telegram.) Thursday, 8 p.m.     The Great Britain brings intelligence from London to the 27th February, by telegram. The Cork journals of 27th February, state that the Kedar, from New York, 14th February, had ar- rived. The electoral roll for President and Vice Pre- sident was formally obtained by the Congres- sional Committee on the 13th February. Lincoln and Hamlin were declared to be duly elected. Tbe scene was very impressive. On reaching Columbus, in Ohio, Mr. Lincoln made a speech before the Ohio Legislature, in which he said that all that was wanted was time, patience, and reliance on God.   The Montgomery Convention was debating the subject of a flag for the Southern Confede- ration.

THE FLOODS. (From the Maitland Mercury, May 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 8 May 1861

THE FLOODS. (From the Maitland Mercury, May 4.) It is obvious that there are no general rules which can be relied upon as trustworthy in reference to flood casualties. It was formerly a belief of many old residents in Maitland that the Hunter here never rose again after it once commenced to fall, in a flood. But in each of the great 1857 floods we wit- nessed a second rise, although not a high one, while in the present flood the second rise amounted to four feet, and brought the river two feet higher than the first had done. In all previous floods as far as we know, the river, after reaching its highest point, began to fall in a very short time, usually within three hours. On the present occasion it remained at the highest level reached, twenty-one feet, from three o'clock on Wednesday morning till eight o'clock on Wednesday evening, or seventeen hours. Doubtless the cause of these varying phenomena is the varia- tion in the amount of rain falling on the numerous   uppe...

WOLLOMB[?] BROOK [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 8 May 1861

WOLLOMBI BROOK.         I am sorry to report that we have been visited with a very serious and damaging flood, which is with a fee of that of June 18, 1857. During ?? when rain fell in large quantities, but the brook did not   commence rising till Sunday night, when it rose with fearful rapidity, and by daylight on Monday mak- ing the banks overflowing. The quantity of   rain in the district must have been great, as the ?? lies' from the mountains roared with water rushing   into the brook. I fear much damage has been oc- casioned by this severe visitation, especially on low lands. Great quantities of pumpkins must have been washed away, ss they were seen floating; and as the brook rose so unexpectedly, there was not a chance of saving these.       At Bozea much damage has occurred, ind??     dently of the quantity of fencing car...
