We would remind our readers that, it is also the population, and that circular can paw of the population, and that circular are Dow sent round to the various house-holders in order that they may be filled up. There can be nothing objectionably in this; at some future day tho consia of Hongkong in 1845 will be a raluable statistical document, and one from which evidence of the increase and prosperity of the colony may be deduced.

We hear many complaints of the insolence of the Chinese Mechanics employed on the va- rious buildings, public and private, now in the course of erection, It is to be feared, that the irresolution of government in yielding to their grand demonstration" in the registration melo drama, has imparted to the ignorant natives algas of their own powers, and of the weakness of the law, which will lead to difficulties, and they will only be convinced of the fallacy of such opinions, by coercion.

In some instances, contractors are obliged to throw up contracts the labourere refusing to work for certain individuals who have incurred their displeasure by informing upon my of their number who inay have committed crime. The sinne-masons form one combination, the brick-layers another and the carpenters third, Each act appear to act independently, but either of them can impede the eraction of a building by leaving off work,

It was but a few days ago that, a carpenter was caught pilfering in the market. The man he was rubling, gave him in charge of the police, but when his fellow workman beard of the allair, they struck to the number of soine hun dreds, and intimated to the Gentleman under whom they were employed that, unless he brid- ed the prosecutor to come forward and deny bis charge they would cease to labour. Many other instances are mentioned of unprincipled combination, by which the government, and the Eumpean part of the population, are equally defrauded by the natives. From the domestic servant, to the largo contractor, the system is the armu. We bear--but we do not state it on authority--that the colonial government, in ad- dition to the stipulated amount of contract, was lately compelled to pay their contracture and labourers sums in the shape of gifts, before they could prevail upon them to finish works which they were under obligation to do.

Combinations anong the labouring or manu- facturing classes of England are not of rare go currence. They are however generally caused by the low rate of wages, and the high price of bread, and in no instance, have we over heard f such combinations, or unions, attempting by threats to discontinue labour,lo induce their ein ployer to commit such a heinous crime as 158 bribing witness to criminate himself, by denial of the truth. Neither have we heard of the unions at bome, insisting upon bribes being paid to themselves on employers, before they would finish a work contracted fur. Yet we bear of these things in Hongkong almost daily. The difficulty is how to punish auch inen. The laws of England may not be satisfied with the evidence brought fugward; or the subjegl of complaint may not be incompatible with the Liberty of the subject which they recognise.

SEPTEMBER NEWS.

(From the London Mail) The success of the French arms in Africa have completely eclipsed the glories of Tahiu: Tangier was bombarded on the 6th August, but neither the manner of allack nor the effect of the fift, calculated to impress us very highly with the effici ency of the French matine. The whole proceeding was witoral from the deck of,he Warpus ; and Due of the officers of that ship fyrnished a critique to the Timer, which has been severely saimadvert ed upon; and, perhaps, justly, in as far as it reflects upon the personal courage of the milants, which is of course not to be questioned, in other par lículare ha is probably correct, for the fire does | not seem to have made the impression apon the works that might have been expected. One so count stairs at the Moors fought gallantly, and that the town itself was rarely injured—¡il seeme to have been spared,)-and that the writer adda, that, when after six hours firing, which damaged the works about the water, but did not breach them any where, the French feet bauled off, the forta continued to ie upon them, and nols Bng was struck. The garrigs had to defend the town not only against the French, but the Kabyles, who were at the same time sitempting to pillage and barn it. The Prince de Joinville u charged with baving precipitated this attack in order to achieve ictory ore British influence could secure prace, nad certain it is that Mr Drummond Hey arrived in the mid of the fire, good man; somewhat us. tonished having left Morocco on the 29th July, after an interview with the Emperor, which im- promed him with the belief that his mission had suc. ceeded.

I waited then for news of Mr. Hay, before commencing hostilition. On the 4th a letter of Bidi Boussolou, Fachs of Larache, was sent ut, more measured, morn conciliating, than preceding one; it reneweil, nevertheless, the insolent demand of the punishment of the marshal. The letter of Bidi Bousselas said not a word of the removal of the corps of troops collected near Ouchds As to Abd el-Kader Sidi Bousselain nameled that he was no longer on the Marocco territory, and that orders had been given to prevent his returning to it. Nevertheless, the Marshal learned at the same tima that Abdel Kader had gone into the interior of Morocco, and that he was two days' march in the rent of the Moorish camp Those accounts had but one object, to triffe with us. Unessy at learning nothing of Mr Hay, I sent the Foloer stromer in juquire and bring news of him. The Veloce came back on the 6th to Tangier, bringing und word that Mr. Hay, was in mfely at Mogador.

English news to the 19th September,

via the Sandwich Island.

We have this morning bean favored with a Sandwich Island paper of the 14th Ultimo, brought by the Schooner Denia, after a quick passage of 27 days. Intelligence from England, via the West Indies and Mexico, had been received at the Islands, of 13 days luter dates than we are now in possession of. The Tahiti question has been settled amicably; the French Government pay- ing Mr. Pritchard 25,000 francs as com. pensation; removing M. D'Aubigny from the Islands, and apologizing for his conduct.

The French war with the Sultan of Morroco is also at an end; and we ap prehend that, for a time, the peace of Europe is not likely to be di turbed by any grand national war between France and Eugland.

The United Statre Brig Perry, had arrived at Hon-lulu previous to the 14th Ultimo. She landed Mr. Cushing at San Blas, on the West Coast of Mexico. It was anticipated that he would arrive in the United States in December, hav- ing sailed from China in the latter end of August.

We copy a few paragarplis from "the Polynesian."

The Tahiti question has been settled. little to the taste of the Bre-enters on both sides of the channel. The par- ticular in regard to Tahiti, we unve not learned; but satisfactius has been made to Alt. Pritchard by a præent of 25,000 francs. M. D'Aubigny has been removed from Tahiti, and his conduel ninde the subject of apology. He had previously been censured by his superior officer, Gov, Bruil The latter has become Capitaine de Vaisseau, of the first clo.-The Times admits that Mr. Pritchard bad certainly outstepped propriety in the part be took towards the French after their occu pation of the island, and hail aclod niore or less an the partisan and fomenter of hostility to them, seema but too probable. And although such a dis position on his part, if it abstained fmm positivo overt acu of hostility, did not render hitn liable to soisure and deprive him of the privilege of inviola bility which surrounds the person of British Consul, still it was a provocative to violence, and therefore must be considered a palliation of "

In ruumilling to you the accompanying Ordi. nance, by which the nature of the jurisdiction con- ferred

upon you in malere of a Criminal nature is further deful and the manner in which such jurisdiction is to be exercised by you pointed out, 1 have to call your particular attention to the follow ing obarvations.

The right of British Consular Officers to exercise duy jurisdiction in China, in matters which in other countrica come exclusively under the control of the local Magistrates, depends originally on the extent to which that right has been conceded by the Em. perer of China to the British Crown, and therefore the right is strictly limited to the terms in which the concession is made,

You will forthwith report upon the menus at foar disposal for executing maisaces of imprison. ment, and on the practice which you have hitherto observed in this respect; and in the meanwhile you are enjoined, whenever recourse is had to the prisons of the country, to arange with the local Authorities that any British prisoner who may be confined therein shall be visited daily by any person appointed by you, and if necessary by Medical

Majesty's Government that those powers shoult not be needlessly or lighly employef; but that, on the country, whenever differences can be adjusted in a cogciliatory manner, such a termination should be promoted and recommended, and that whenever crimes are to be punished, certain and speedy, rather than sevete, punishment is to be preferred.

You will oluerre that three courses of proceed Ing are prescribed. viz. A summary decision; a decision with the amistance of Aressure chosen from the British Community; and a course to The Criminal tribunal of Hongkong.

The object for which the jurisdiction is to bằ exercised renders il unnecessary to deal with crimes occording to the strict definition of English Law, even if the means at the disposal of the Consula, and the extent of legal knowledge which they can be expected to possess, admitted of such a course.

"The utmost that it appears necesary to attempt In this respect is, that a rule should be laid down that an action which would be criminal in the Bri. tish dominions, should be equally considered an criminal in Ching. But, in dealing with such criminal actions, regard must be had to local cir. cumstance and necessities to the British Domi- njona, many crimes unimportant in thehaselves must be dealt with, in consequence of the denomination by which they are distinguished, in the anne formal manner as crimes of more solous description. An insignilicant theft, boing a "felony," must in most cases be submitted to the decision of a jury, equally with the most extensive robbery. But this rule need not be adhered to in the Copular Courts in China. There all crimes of a trifling kind, ander whatever legal denomination they many be else, may safely be disposed of summarily by the Consol, and sufficiently stoned for by punish- inent within the limits prescribed by the Ordinance for the sole jurisdiction of the Consul ; while crimes of a more serious kind must be reserved for adju- dication by the Consul in a tribunal more formally constituted by the prosence of Assessors.

But in onder to provide the means of dealing with crimes which may be too serion for even this more formal tribunal io decide upon and which in England would be reserved for a Judge of Ausize, the Tahod of Hongkong has been appointed as the place of trial fur offences committed by British Subjects in the Chinese Dominina.

It is intended that in all places where more than oor Conmalar Officer is residing, the Squier t'on- pular Officer shall hold the Constar Compta esta- blished by the present Ordinance, unless be shonki for some reasonable exuse be temporarily incapa. citated from so doing; and that little time as circunstances will admit abduk! in all cases in- Terreno between the apprehension of a party, and the hearing and decision of the charge brought agajost him.

Much dissatisfaction continues among the slone masoud and other employed in buiki ing. Ono gentlemen, who has been greatly annnyed by contractor throwing up th contract after the building had commencer, made arrangements with seened party to finish the work: one of the people employed by the first contractor appeared on the ground and endeavoured to intimidate the new hands, when he was handed over to the police, and the offence being proven, the Chief Magistrato very properly fined him forty dul- lars with a short imprimament

Upon hearing of this, the stone masons held was resolved that, the meeting, at which

party who obtained the conviction mould also obtain the entprit's beration; that the new contractor should pay all arrears of wages duo by the old contractor, who has abscondeil; and that the four men who appeared as wit- nesses should be fined by this self constituted court in the sum of 20. Failing the carrying out of this their fiat, labour was to he spend ed. We hear that the contractor has submitted to pay inen wages whom he did not employ, also that the witnesses have paid their fue, but the man is of course still in prison.

SANDWICH ISLANDS,

We copy from the "Friend of India" a good cleal of information, regarding this interesting group of islands now about being changed

from barbariam to civilization.

On looking over a list of the fines and pe- nalties enforced by the laws of the semi-barbe. rous government, our Europoon ideas are rather startled at the ratio by which erines are put nished. We read 1000 for any captait, land ing a passenger without permission-adultery 30; breach of the quarnitine laws $1,000, lewd seductive and tasrivins conduct 810; korwingly and maliciously violating the quaran nne laws, whereby a contagios desea is to

ment.

The third course pointed out is for crimes of the greatest enormity; such as at home are usually reserved for a Judge of Assizes. It is intended, at least for the present, that poople charged with murder shall be sent for trial to Hongkong; but previnas to this being done the depositions, of witnesses require to be for warded to His Excellency, who will consult with the legal authorities as to the probability of obtaining conviction, before the expence of transporting the accused with the witnesses is incurrent.

We think a perusal of the circular and or dinance, will show with tolerable clearness the ties and pover of the Consuls, and enable the British residents to understand their precise position. Among Christian nations it is not stal in grant to foreigners the privilege of trial by their own lawr,and by their own country.
