It appears that Mr. Holly was engaged by Mr. C. A. Lee, storekeeper, to take a load of general store goods for one of his constituents in the Western district, with which he left here with a team of sixteen bullocks. On arriving at the Sovereign River, near Mongoola, it was found to be in a very swollen condition, in consequence of the recent rains. Holly, however, attempted to cross (although at the most favourable time it is not a good crossing), when the force of the current carried the bullocks off their legs, and twelve of the animals were drowned before the pole could be cut and the team released. The dray was, we understand, pulled out of the river with, great difficulty by some teams who were be- hind, but some of the goods were a good deal damaged. Mr. Holly's loss is a very heavy one, and much sympathy ís felt for him under
    the circumstances." The article did not specify if the owner of the dray was Mr Holley, junior or senior.
