MAITLAND, IROnt Til? SMAITLAND IMERCURY. TIIE F.LOODs.-During the whole of last week the rain has been almost unceasing, and from various parts of the country we learn that the overflowiig of the creeks has done mutch mis chief. The River Hunter rose at Singleton oli Wednesday about ten 'feet, but on Thursday morning the rain having in some degree abated it began to thll, and has graditallybeen decreas Ing. InThle iMonday's mail to Singleton didnotreach tie place until Tuesday about noon ; the mail bags were obliged to be carried on horseback from Black Creek, the bridges on the road hav ing been swept away by the floods. The roads are in a most dreadfill state, the rains having rendered them ahlmost impassable. Anvil Creek rose upwards of seven feetwitlhin an hour, and immense stones from the bridge were carried away by the rapidity.of tile cur rent.

PORTLAND GUARDIAN, And Normanby General Advertiser TO PROTECT OUR ILIaIITS-- OT0 TO NFRINGEUPON THOSI OF OTIIHRS." SA'URDAY, APRIL 29, 1813. BANKING. T'rH establishment of a bank in Portland, has been an object long anrid devoutly to be wished for; and certainly if that earnestly desired event shall ever take place, we are nearer to it now than we have been at any previous period. Theseia'c deceiving times: the best are out of their reckoning in mone tary affairs; and that public expectation should have been formed, deferred, and dis appointed, is owing more to the unusual and extraordinary direction mercantile transac tions and business affhirs have taken, than that opinion has been formed on insuf ficient ground as to the eligibilty of Portland for banking operations. The establishment of a bank among us will be either aipersonal benefit or an injury, and will individually be either a good or an evil, just as we make it ourselves. The use ofinoney, in profitable enterprise and spe...

'CAP'rUnE or A WIIAL 'AT LYxN.-Early on Saturday morning a whale 'of the species called a, Finner, was'discovered by some Lynn pilots, left dry by the tide between this port and the Roads. It so happendd that one of the party was-experienced in' the wlhale-fishing, and au attempt was immediately made to secure the stranger. 'A. rope was'fastetned roulid the tail with much difficuty, the fish exhibiting no signs of motion. The tide, which was flood,soon surroutided him, and as soon as lie saw there was suf ficient to floatin, the wl'a'e stack offwith rapidity, dragging the boats wi:hlease towards the Rtoads. Ileretheagain changed his course, and made for the town, the boat being still attached to his tail. -A wound was now.inflicted- by the aid of a knife fast cuned to a pole, but still insufficentfoi hlis destruction.

DISTRICT COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

DISThICT COUNCILS. By one of the arrivals of the week, we received a file of Portland Bay newspapers forthermontli of Janu ary. The district appearsgraduallyimnproving, and the town appears to bu entirely free from that inor dinate system of land-jobing, which is the bane of most new settlements. There are two well-con ducted journals, "The Portland Mercury," and "The P'ortland Guardian," extracts from which will be found in the fourth page of this morning's "Herald." (By a typographical errror, the ex tracts are headed" Geelong," instead of "Portland Bay.") The "salt beef question," we perceive, is exciting considerable interest in that, as well as other districts of the colony. The papers before us have long articles on the new Bill, whichh on thle whole they approve of, particularly that portion relating to tihe fonrmation o District Cuneils. Tuin above editorial paragraph we have copied verbatim front the S'dney Morning Hcrald. It has innocently given a sltham plea to the iMercu...

SYDNEY. Bt.aurMA.-The IIigh Sheriff ias fided £50 for neglect of duty in not summoning more than ten persons, to attend the Quar ter sessions at Berrima. INSOLVENT ACT.-The evil effects of this act are beginning to be seen, very distinctly by the trading communities ofSydney; and loud complialits against its operations are heard. Its repeal or amendment will be soon demanded. A merchant of forty years experience has addressed a letter in the Syd neyq herald, to AIr. Justice Burton, on the subject and concludes with this sweeping declaration. -the present insolvent Law, as it now stands, is erroneous on general principles ; it has done and his doing, great and grievous injury to this community, and, unless speedily arrested in its progress, will involve in one common devastating ca lamity our whole colony. - His Excellency the Governor has appoin- ted Lieutenant Mair, 99th Regiment, Pay master and Adjutant of the Mounted Police Corps, vice Lieutenant Somerset, 51st.

This skeleton must be the remains of King Alpin, who was taken prisoner in the action, and beheaded by the Picts; for though some histories state that his head-and body were re moved by the Scots to Ineoltnkill wtrad tthlee buried, yet the fact of now finding the head severed from the body, which waon in the centre of the mound, and dis tant some fields front the mass of bones of tlose who fell in the action, renders it certain that this must he the skeleton of some chieftain,-and there is no record of any one of hote having fallen on -this occasion ex cept King Alpin, the last king of the'tiidivided sept of the Scots, end fromt whom her Majesty, Queen Victoria is lineally descended, was discovered the very day she crossed the Tay and entered t...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

NEW ZEALAND. By the Nelon Ex.aminer, we observe the different settlements on New Zealand are gradually but steadily improving, yet a great deal of dissatisfaction is evin ced iii many parts on account, of defective titles to land. In Nelson, in consequence of the uncertainty of titles, jury lists cannot be made out; no security to-purchasers or mortageee can be offered ; the inclination to invest capital il land is altogether checked, and a fertile source ofdiscord and quarrel created. Sheep, according to the pricc-current of the Nelson Examiner, of the 11th Feb., were 25s. each; working bullocks £50 per pair; milch cows, from £12 to £25 each; fowls, per pair, 10s.; ducks, ditto, £1 ; mutton per lb. 11d. to Is.; beef the same price i bread, per 21b. loaf, Od. By an address presented to his Excellency the officer administering the government, by a deputation from the land proprietors, at Port Nicholson, relative to the settlement of the land claims, it ajpears that the greater part d...
