Tuesday 17 June 1873, The Sydney Morning Herald

ARMIDALE, Saturday.

It has been raining here for the past week, with but few intervals – at times in torrent. All the creeks are flooded. The southern mail has been very late at times – not arriving till 11 p m. some nights. The ponds are in a deplorable condition. There are no signs of a clearing up, but there are prospects of a high flood.
