The old bridge was carried away by floods two years ago, and the want of some means of crossing with cattle during the interval of its re-erection has been much felt by numerous travellers to the Corinna. Some other useful jobs were also contemplated such as culverts over dangerous creeks between the Lagoon River and the Arthur. Several new wire fences have been recently put up on the line of route, in order to mark the division or boundary of tho various cattle runs, at Sandy Cape, Whale's Head and Sudown Creek, so that all the coast line from the A...
