      LOWOOD.
      [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT]
      The rain fell so incessantly on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, that the river rose rapidly, and all the creeks and gullies over-flowed. Intelligence of a fatal accident to Mr. Michael Killeen [Kerlin] was brought into Lowood, on Sunday afternoon. It appears that, while crossing a swollen stream, near his home, on horse-back, the unfortunate man was washed away by the current, and his body is supposed to have been carried to the river. He leaves a widow and six children.

      Monday Morning.
      The body of a man was found, by Mr. G. Watson, lying face-down, stock-whip in right hand against a fence on the bank of Sandy Creek, near the Brisbane River. The corpse is supposed to be that of poor Killeen [Kerlin], who was drowned last Sunday week.
