MANILLA MARKETS. THE schooner Munford left Manilla on the 1st October last-Reports cigars are very scarce in the Mauilla market.and at the time of the Mun ford's leaving there were none to be purchased trotn Government. The supply of leaf still being deficient, there are only a few more ma nufactured than are required for the consumption j of the place. À new regulation has been adopted by Government to issue what overplus there may be three times a month equally between all applicants who may require for exportation, those for consumption being prohibited. For the month previous to the Munford's departure, lhere was no overplus, and of course none distributed, and little hopes of any for some time ; so much so that whoever urgently require them buy of Spa niards, who have been gathering them up from these distributions, and have obtained 2 dollars per 1CO0 above the Government prices.

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 February 1845
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. PUTTING AN- EKD TO THE BALL.-A ball took place on Friday night, at the barracks of the mu nicipal guards, on the occasion of the King's fete. An extraordinary and rr^lancholy event occurred at the barracks of the rue Notre Dame des Vic toiries. At about five in the morning, when the animation was at its highest point, one of the men, who had been dancing for a long time, said to a comrade, " The ball lasts too long-I will put an end to it." He immediately left the dancing room, and in a few minutes afterwards, an explosion being heard, several of the municipal guards rushed out, and found their comrade lying dead in the yard, he having blown his brains out with a pistol. The act is attributable to disappointed love. EASY SHAVING.-To those who desire comfort in this operation., the following simple plan is re commended, after several years' experience of its efficacy, by a gentleman who has been necessitated .to experiment a good deal in consequence of having ...

CULTURE AND MANUFACTURE OF TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 February 1845
CULTURE AND MANUFACTURE OF TOBACCO. DURING the last week or two we hate been making enquiries respecting'the quantity and value of tlie tobacco grown and manufactured in the Hunter River district. We had no means of arriving at exact information on the subject; but we think that the following particulars may be regarded as a pretty close approximation to the truth, as the persou from whom we received our information chiefly is largely engaged in the tráde, and is well informed on the subject. The quantity of leaf grown tn the district during the past season is estimated at 330,000 lbs. Of this quantity Mr Boydell purchased about 160,000 lbs.; Messrs Walthal & Co. 70,000 lbs.; the remaining 100,000 lbs. has been chiefly made up by the settlers themselves-the sinai 1er manufacturera who have recently commenced having purchased, perhaps, about one third of it« The price paid for the leaf by the manufacturers varied from 2|d to öd per lb., according to quality and condition ; th...
