The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser
12 April 1832
We are glad to find, by our Agricultural Report from Argyle, published in this day's Gazette, that in that part of the country there had been no serious damage done by the late rains.
From gentlemen recently returned from the remote southern stations, we learn that the Murrumbidgee had risen considerably above its banks, and covered most of the extensive plains in its neighbourhood with an ocean of water.
We, have before us several letters from the Hunter, describing the inconvenience and loss sustained by the writers during the prevalence of the flood: in some cases the loss has been very severe, but on the whole the flood has been far less injurious than was generally anticipated.
