MANILLA MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845
MANILLA MARKETS. THE schooner Munford Mt Manilla on the 1st October last-Reports cigars are very sea»ce in the Manilla maiket,and at the time of the Mun* ford's leaving there were none to be purchased from Government. The supply oí leaf stol being deficient, th re are t'nly a few attire mu- nn facto red than are required for lue consumption of the place. A 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, (hose for consumption being prohibited. For the month previous to the Munford's departure, there 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 i COO above the Government prices. A great scarcity of cigars having taken place at Singapore, China, Batavia, and the Colonies, t...
SOME THINGS WORTH KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845
' SOME THINGS WORTH KNOWING. [Br A COBBESFONOENT.j TUE experience of every day leaches us, that the prosperity of any trading community, whose production is restricted to one or two articles of commerce, must necessarily be very precarious. But if this has been the case hitherto, much more so ts it now, when, owitig to the progress of freMrade principles, and that cupidity of character of a commercial people, by equity itself is ifm pel led to bow to political expediency. TbJrtTuth of this position is strikingly illustrated jn the case of the West Indian planters, who, j ^compelled by the British Government, despite oí their expressed wishes, to empky slaves for the cultivation of their estates, and afterwards compelled lo abandon the slave-system (on re- ceiving 5s. in the pound indemnity), are now deprived of the sugar monopoly, because it is more for our interest to procure sugar from the Brazils. What can be mote impolitic than for the co- lonists to be lavishing their attention...

SIR GEORGE ARTHUR AND THE AMEERS. [FRIEND OF INDIA, SEPT. 20.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845
SIR GEORGE ARTHUR AND THE AMEERS. j LFB12KJ> OF INIHA, SEPT. 29-] ITHE H-C. steamer Tenasserim, Captain A.. P. j Wall commanding, came into harbour yesterday j afternoon, from Bombay, having on board their Highnesses the Ex-Ameers of Hyderabad. The Tenasserim left Bombay at six o'clock on the evening of Wednesday, the 10th ; passed Point du Gaile on the lilli ; reached the pilot vessel off the Sand Heads at two, p.m., oo Sunday, and came to anchor off Saugor at ten, p.m. The weather throughout was fine, with light breezes as far as Ceylon, from which there was hardly any wind all the way up the Bay. Ou the 13*1», spoke the Mary, of Loudon, in latitude 12 ° north, from Colombo to Bombay, out fourteen days. The following list gives the names of their Highnesses the Ex-Ameers and other passeur i gers : - j Meer Nusser Khan.

RETURN OF EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845
RETURN OF EXPORTS. Is another column will be found a return of ex &nbsp; ports during each year from 1838 to 1844, both inclusive. As the exports from South Australia, as a colony, commenced in the former year, this table gives a complete view of the export trade of the province since its establishment, and we think we may fairly challenge the world to produce a separate and isolated colony, such as this has been, which can exhibit equal results. Our neighbours at Port Phillip, and even our braggadocio friends at Portland Bay sometimes boast of their progress, but they ought to re- member, that in their case it has been merely the extension of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, which colonies sent to a new district their superabundant flocks and herds. Wherever their progress has been the result of their own industry, they are immensely behind this colony. For ex- ample, it appears that the quantity of land cul- tivated is only about 8,000 acres, and by the last accounts...
THE NEW BRIDGE OVER THE TORRENS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845
THE NEW BRIDGE OVER THE TORRENS, MUCH unnecessary remark has been indulged in, chiefly by our verbose contemporary the Register, in consequence of a notification in the Gazette, requiring tenders for the erection of a bridge in the direction of Morphett-street. Our contempo rary apparently supposes that, though money was subscribed, and received by Government, on the express condition that a bridge should be erected on the old site, the Government will, nevertheless, appropriate that money to the building of a bridge in the line of Morphett-street. That the Govern ment will not keep faith with the subscribers is certainly a very violent as well as a very unchari &nbsp; table supposition, and could only be promulgated &nbsp; by one habituated to evil thoughts, or who has acquired an inveterate habit of crying wolf! We believe the real fact to be, that the Colonial Engineer, on a careful inspection of the site of the old bridge, has found that, in consequence of a bend...
Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845
RELIGIONS AND EDUCATIONAL STATISTICS. - In consequence of the space taken up by important extracts from yesterday's Gazette, and other cir- cumstances, we cannot publish our promised article upon the present state of the colony in reference to the means of religious instruction and education till our next. CASE OF WILKINS. - The authorities have deter mined on a full investigation of this affair. Dr. Wright was this morning arrested, and is to be brought up to-day for examination before the po- lice magistrates. LAST evening we had a visitation of thunder and lightning - the latter as vivid as any we ever saw. The only accident we have heard of is a very re- markable one. About ten in the evening the lightning lifted the main (iron) shaft and the sails of Messrs Phillips & Horne's splendid windmill from their place and threw them on the ground. The sails, of course, were dashed to pieces, but not a single brick has been displaced, and no other damage was done. The shaft weig...
