LOCAL AND DOMESTIC. ANOTHER MAN DROWNED . — We arc sorry to have to record the death of Mr. Thomas Wallace, the well-known jockey, who was drowned on the 4th instant, while attempting to swim his horse across Sandy Creek, on the Warwick Road. It appears that the unfortunate young man had driven a lot of fat cattle trom Messrs. Davidson's station, on the. Canning Downs, to Brisbane, and was on his return home, accompanied by Mr. Walter Davidson, on Saturday week last. On arriving at Sandy Creek, about eight miles from Messrs. Balbi and Gray's Inn, they 'found the water had overflowed. the banks, and rushing down with great force. Undismayed by the obstacle before tliem, and being anxious to proceed on their journey home, they determined to swim     their horses across. Mr. Davidson got safely to the opposite side, but Wallace's horse went under water, and after unseating his rider, rose to the surface. and then swam ashore. The poor follow, finding himself s...
