In the careful description of these machses which appeared in the Athen?am of the 11th of June, the ingenious writer has stated, in spraulating na their data, that they must have bein expo-ted prior to Sennacherib and Hezekiah; hocumen the cala anicira which Pell upon the empiry milko iment in that period, and the dismemberment of the Assyrian empire a few poses wfter, could not have allowed ficient time to recomplish such extensive and magnificent works na thean on les consider stinn, This need not, nvorssarily, he the case.

Among the ancients it was usual to represent, in the decore tion and enrichment of their temples and public balldings, the herole achievements of remote ages. There is sufficient proof of this in almost all the ancient sexlpture that had reached our time. Dispeling, then, the claim of these marbles to so remote an antiquity,—I will now endeavour to re- concile my speculations of their being of a more recent date with certain contemporary historical cired stances, and with events which they may suppose to illustrate

It was impossible, therefore, even had the murders been committed on Bunday the 5th that the board could have looked as recently shaven" on 'Thare- day the 9th, the date of the first of the inquests, and the one upon which the Editor of the Ching Mail was a Jutor. On this, an open other malters squ arted wish these murders, ho is deceiving hipoelf; we trust he may notelerive othew, it being most desirable that whole truth be known.

We have on the fail's authority that "Mr Moir Surgeon of the Misure complains that his nine should have appeared in the Juquest on Mr Bellamy he not having been present" Auming this to be trug (it would have been more in form hd Mr Moir wade bis complaint publicly through the columns of the paper which published an in- Morrect repon, namely the China Mail) it only shews that Mr Elmalis was not very correct in drawing up these reports. Now, without casting any reflections upon Air Elmalis, such may be the case. An unusual duty was required of him under peculiarly painful circumstances. We believe that at the first Inquest-the one upon which the Edhor of the thing fail to Jator-the report was drawn up from notes taken on the occasion, an in- formality which at the time no one objected to Buietly speaking, there were no oroner's Inqu?te stell.

If he dal this, either from respect to the wishes of others, or from a desire that others should sid him in such an important matter, we appreciate the motive. We believe the Inquests gave entire satisfaction in Canton; and if one or two querulous persons now object because they weren't consulted, we only my, the spirit is to be deplored.

In the political department of the Chinese Repo. eitary we do not pat much faith, a rule which we generally apply to all journals where temporalities are associated with spiritualities, we are however induced to take a pamage or two from the number for December, not in order to contrast them with previously expressed opinions, if they disagree with which, it only shows that the Editor is open to conviction, and of this no good or reachable man

Two of the alleged official documents bear date 19th December; they intimate the capture of the four principal. criminals.

As such it is no doubt intended, though, it is to bethoped that should the Consulate be withdrawn, due and more formel notice will be given.

in Chinese official letter.

These papers deserve no credit; they rather und to strengthen the very gefloral supression that the men were taken out of jail; and may be brought forward as blind to the foreign community. There publication bowaver indpers us to give sa extract from a letter dated Canton 29th December, which has been for a week before us; and though we are not quite satisfied that deception was pranused in the matter, we know that our correspondent would not write what he did not firmly believe to be true,

"I have it from very good authority that the four men executed near Hwang chu-kes had nothing whatever to do with the murders. They would havo been beheaded the same day at the execution ground at Canton for another offence, if not required for this ocession. It appears they were taken from prison two or three night before to Keying's house in chairs and by steakh so as not ti be observed and to avoid enquiry and remark ou the part of the popu Ice. They were there promised by Keying free pardon, if they would go along with his Soldier, c., in a boat and point out the other parties impli cated in the crime for which they were coodemned to suffer. 'I bey consented and were shaved, wash. ed, and decently clotbed They accompanied the Soldiers and rap ers of police to the boat, which they thought we sent in quest of their comrades, On the way up the rivarabey were bound and gag- ged; purposely gagged, my informant mys, to pre- their powering soy quemions put to them by the Enterpreter

This report is quite currant in Gunton, though the Chinese are more cautious in speaking out, as en quiries are being made no to the witnessrs who gave information to Sir John Davis. Compare it (the report) with what look place at the extension and in in at least probable. The men were gagged-the execution were hurried over in the most inderent manner—and not a single villager was present to take warning by the vaunted KEA PLE. It is mockery to speak of an example; the inen might just as well have been ex-outed within the precincta uf Hongkong Jail with the Chinese and European police looking un.

Boch is Sir John Davie candid assertion in direct opposition to all previous official publications. The | Editor of the Mail could not afford to exhibit the same manly spirit; he had put himself forward as | an omele on Chinese matters, and even the memory of the dead must be slandered to sustain his pul- recent reputation. How does he attempt this In his journal had appeared some tolerably correct accounts of his own, and one acknowledged to be correct and complete, communicated by a gentleman particularly well informed; but it would not do to allow those to go forth in their naked truth A. cordingly, they are clothed with a man of lakeboods, which is alleged were picked up at Cantin, the entire made up deformity, being a complete burlesque, wading to derive the public. The general tenor of the mustulinous reports published in the over- land edition of the China Mail appear in effect be, that lus countrymen commenced the affray in which they were killed at once, and that no reliance can be placed on anything that can he said to the contrary. This is not suid boldly; but few who have read the paper but have come to the sorrowful conclues that such was the impression wished to be conveyed by the reports, and the Editotinl remarks on the Inquiesta, in opposition to this we pines Sir John Davis ja addressing Kryng," that being attacked accord. ing to the previous repeated declarations of the villagers, they defended the maelves with pistols and some of them being captured were subsequently put to death in cold blood.

We annek a translation of one received to-day (Friday) ; it may be from the Gantry of Canton, or it may be the manu facture of the Commissioner's office. The on- liments are “unobjectionable,”—quite,—but it is to be regretted that it did not appear six months ago when it was well known the villagers were confederating to murdor foreigners. As to the twenty policemen furnished by the val- linnt Magistrates, it is a mere burlesque upon security; if attacked by the villagers, while in the discharge of their duty, they would think discretion the batter part of valer and bult to | a mao. Keying know the murdered on were alive on the oth, yet he did not dare to rescue them from the villagers; the Magistrate of Nanbae with a strong force at his command not dare to land, though he also knew they were alive. In the face of those facts, to prate of the security to be afforded by twenty police- men seems very foolish, and only at for the mouths of knaves and fools, and it is to be hoped that none such are among us in a posi tion to work mischief.

By that ordinance the police Magistrates are empowered to fine to the amount of ?60. The ordinance passed in September, and we see the result in an increase of ?3,001 upon the previous year's, and ?2,942 upon Bir Joba Davis's estimate. It is true that between fines and floggings they are depopulating the town, but in the meantime the revenue has been bol stered up.

| suspicious, imposing, and curious clasi ation) ?1,338. The actual expenditure has en considerably under the estimate, as the venue, to which we now turn, was over it. An increase in revenue of ?4,03) gives a clusive appearance of prosperity; it has been rung from the colony at the sacrifice of its best terests; witness the untenented Chinese abope the whole length of the Queen's road. The ceive fines in the Magistrates court are adually depopulating the town, but in the cantime the object has been gained, and under e bead of fees, fines and forfeitures we have 4.142, or ?2,001 in excem of 1846. We can

suppose that there has been any material seration in the amount of fees, and the in- dave must be in fines and forfeitures. In 346these three items were given under distinct ads, the fines being 2560 and forfeitures ?18; year to disguise the iniquitous legalities of inferior coort, the fincs are included with other items. This will be better understood extracting the particulars from the govern

ant returns.

After a time the axecutive immoed a pr clamation against Public Breakfasts at Holmer Hotel. The agitators then changed the ocean at their morning palition) moslto Hayes' Hotel Dawson street. The dispersing of one of these gather, inge is graphically related by Mr. Barrett in * Personal Narrative" in the Pilot Our young rendate will thank us for transfering the sc?ne la our alumns:-

Again we are asserabled at Breakfast -bat som at Hayes's Hotal. No fresh proclamatian iwnes -several speeches are made: Frecollect having j conelded a brief addrang, when the door of the `breakfast room in thrown open, and three maga

Gentlemen ganid Aldermen Darley), I come bare to require, in complianc with a inte proclamation, that this anasembly do la. stantly diapers." Mr O'Connell, who was that day in the chait, replied-" Before I consent to die. solve this assemblage, I require to see your autho rity: you must produce the proclamation, conform ably to the law under which you profes to act, and one of your worships must also read it." Then was a pan-they had mot brought the proolume. tion with them: they intimated the fact to M O'Connell. He says-“You must, gratlemen, eand for the proclamation and read it, or I will not con sent to the dispersion of this meeting except by force". There is a messenger dispatched in the [signed]

To the mum and affipace of the 9th ho continum to be own by a piher appulation than that of "bey Jones." which so- gulfed him poti celebelly, shrao se four years ago, in Lomlen and Windsor.—I.line-

THE SHIPS OF THE WAR OR THE OXIPA OF THE SURVEYOR {From the Shipping Gazette.)

Resuming the subject of our naval armament during the last war (continued in our justast of the J?ch ?k), we hare to observe that, between the breaking out of the war in 1793, and the close of the war in 1814, several vary, ?ne ships of two decka wwe osptured from the seamy and added to the list of the Navy ; among the larger of this class, vessels rated 80 guas and upwards were the Malia, Tonnant, Canopus, Pompir, and one or two others; and of a smaller class, rated from 74 to 76 or 68 guns, were the Donegal, Tigre, Impeteus, Herculs, Spartiate, &c., captured from the French. The larger claus of these resule, the 80's, were unquestionably the finest ships of two decks in the world; they were of great size and tonnaga, for the time, and would be found of ample size and tonnage for the present day; they carried a heavy armament, were excellent sea boats in every weather, sailed remarkably fast, and were very weatherly. The Canopuce, which is still In commission, may serve as an inferior specimen of the group. The smaller ships to which we have referred were nothing inferior to the others except in sino; they had every good quality which the larger ships possessed: and as a proof they were powerful vessel we may state that, although beavily masted, they stood up a'mirably wall to their can- vas, and never complai red in bad weather.

In a naval work pub iabed in 1800, we ?nd it anted that H. M. ship Jrepesona's (rated 76, captar- sedefrol the French in the action of the Ist June) lower masla were four feet above those of a 06-gan ship; her tapmasta not quite so high in proportion; her toplantionate higher than what are common. ly used in 74; her lower and tops?lyards very square; topgsilang yards not so. In these days of |naval Inquiry it say he imteresting to give the di- mensions of this vessel's spam as a specimen of the class to which she belonged, and this we are enabled to do from an official document:- Mainmast from the step, 115 feet 4 inches; topmast, 67 feet 4 inches: gallantroust, 32 feet 11 inches; foremast, 104 frei 6 inches; foretopmast, 63 feet 6 inches; foretop- gallant mest, 20 at 11 inches; misen must, stopped in the lower drek, 80 feet 6 inches; reizentopmast 47 feet 4 inches: isentop-gallantmart, 22 feat 8 inchen; bowspril, 71 feat I inch, jib-boom, 48 feet 9 inches: main yard, fel incles; topil yard, 80 feet 5 inches; inpgallam yard, 42 feet 2 inches; fore yard, a fet 0 inches; foretopsail yard, 67 feet inch; torgailent yard, 37 feet 2 inches; mizzen. feel. When we consider the number of year that topsail yard, 47 feet 10 inches; topganol yard 33 these superior ships were in the possession of this country, it is surprising that the new ships upon two deche, Bulk after the renewal of the war 1808, were not constructed from their lines, instead of building a class of vereria which were for the most part of a very mediere description compared to them. We have been informed upon sufficient authority that, out of nine British ships of the line which accompanied the Russian dret to England after the Convention of Cutra, there were hat two of them that could sail with the ship of the Russian Admiral Zineris; these were the Donegal uni) Her cair, both French ships and among the British squadron there were ships, both of the old and new construction. The Russian ship, Swedish-built, was of 78 guna. This fot alone ought to have given a bit to the aaral avaboritim, that there was some room for Improvement in our naval construc- all the virtues of a ship of the line to consist in her tion; not, as we have already said, that we consider sailing qualities; but when this is found combined with every other good property, an in these French hipo, it is certainly most desirable. It is quits possible that some of the Surveyor's shipa may il though judging from the trials with the Canopus, better than those we exptured from the French, al this is by no means well established; but admitting that they have this perfection, it is undeniable that, in every other respect, and in every property which would be required for a sea-going ship, they are Tally inferior.

When they sighted her again she was beating in, but quickly put of before the wind; they gave chase and cap whed her. On board was crew of seven man, also a woman and a boy. There was a quantity of Malwa Opium similar to that found on the five men captured sabore, part of it was concealed under the bedding on the floor there was Opium dust and among other articles was a bug such as is only used by Chinabow milors. The day after the capture, the Master of a Chinchew trader appeared at the station and complained of having been robbed by pirates outside the Ly-moon pamago, and on being shown the prisoners he recognized them. Mr Caldwell's evidence as to the capture wa corroborated by that of the policemen he had with lum.

The Captain of the Chin-chew Junk stated that about 8 o'clock on the morning of the 19th Dpcember, be was attacked by pirates outside the Ly-moon passege; there were two boats, in one was about ten men, in the other eleven or iwelve. He was assailed by two men arm- ed with swords and spears, and after receiving any wounds (the marks of which were shown) he was driven into the water. He identified the two men by whom he was assailed, as also the other prisoners, though there may have been a mistake, as it in doubtful whether the man who planned the piracy and furnished the arms &c. was on board. Two of the Chinchew seamen gave evidence ilar to the above; they also had besa wounded severely and for a time were insensible, They also identified se- veral of the prisoners. Two other witnesses had been besten and driven into the hold while the vessel was pillaged. All these witnesses besides recognising the pirates, also identified the property carried away.

Tho Triad, and other political societies have been gradually maturing their schemes, and a revolt was not distant with the view of placing on the Imperial throne & descendant of the old Chi- pese dynasty. A force of about 60,000 men was organized, and the treason only detected by the

They were there on purpose to ass- jannato him, and their detection has led to the arrest of about 40 of the principal conspirators, Buch is the report, and it is by no means im- probable, as n is clear that the government has little control over the people. Perhaps Keying has conciliated too long, but if the above is cor rect, he now requires to act with vigor and so- repily.

The first trial was that of a man charged with having been connected with the piracy of the Caroline on the 5th February 1841. The evidence was similar to that in the third case in the Register's report, vil; that of the pirate Too-apo who has turned Informer.

good will of those who did not regund politics ; while { (Bigned) his liberal sentiments and close application to busi miso were appreciated by others. Mr Begida han had much expiece in legislating for a comercial settlement, and we anticipats that his career in Chi na will not detract from his well earned repumtion. Unfortunately on his arrival, if he does not at once require to plunge into the intricacim of Chinese diplomnoy, he will very shortly have to attunge a tristy either by force of arms or amicably, is the latter caso laking ample security for the fath of the other contracting party, and thus for a time much of his atterring will be drawn from the colony. The removal of axisting restrictions, a rigorous suppress. ion of piracy, a reform of the police, and a modi- fication of the enveriting of the police court, appear to be the chief reforme called for, learing trade to its natural growth. We trust Mr Bonhem will call into Council a few of the mom experiencel members of the community; and the colonista may congratulate themselven that His Excellency will be aided by an able colonial legislator in the commander of the forces.

14 June last the British Merchants at the port of Shanghai formed a Chamber of Commerce, similar to that at Choloo, for the acouragemani and pro- lection of trade. Of this due intimation was given to Her Majesty's Consul with a request to be inform ed whether he would recognise the Chamber offici ally. To this communication no abewer was re. ceived, and on the 15ih Ultimo the Chairman aguin addressed the Consul, which called for the lengthy letter we now lay before the public

There are many assailable points in Afr Alcock's letter, but we will merely point out one or two of them.

As to the logle,-by which he condemne him. self If the Chinees had a right to establish Cham bees of Commerces for legitimate purposes, he was que unjustified in tending to the jealous feelings of foreigners and preventing such establishments.

2nd. As to the facts The Chinese did not wish to form a Chamber of Commerce. They were de sirous of forming a Consoo fund similar to that abo limbed at Canton. The primary object of this fund wat to pay off the creditors of the bankrupt Hoogs, though its ulterior effect would have been to esta blish a strict monopoly of the foreign trade in a few hands, levying a direct tax upon it of 24 per cent.

?rd. Mr Alcock was not solely instrumental in preventing this. "We refer to the statement from the ton Merchants at Ningpo and Hwuy-chou, and also to the proclamation forbidding the association. It will be observed from the latter, that the Tau-tai pro. hibited the association because" the merchants were

divided in opinion on the subject," and not because the Consul disapproved of it.

The British Bubjects resident at Shanghai hava addressed Sir John Davis on the Hwang-chu-kee murders. While expressing their horror of the deed that has been commited, they urge upon His Ex- the absence of Our Cloverone and Comcellency the necessity of taking steps to prevent the death chief of our agid Island of Hongkong now and perpetration of similar atrocities, not only at Canton but also at Shanghai. It is true that the people of the latter port have hervsofore been quiet, bot how long they may continue so, if the perpetrators of the Late murders go unpunished, or unless some severa example is made, is extremely problematica. There are now a considerable number of Cant?d Chi- nese settled at Shanghai, and ibay will not fall with Mr Alcook in bad in bis logic, and innocurate in Lue Chinese insolence to expatisis upon the degend face. It was notorious to the community during position of foreigners at the factories; the poison last winter that the creditore of the bankrupt Honge thus instilled into the minds of the people of the were holding meetings to concert some scheme for north, and a sense of their own humiliation during repaying themselves. The silk and too Hell with the war, may possibly encourage them to insch for- - a duly of 24 per cent was devised ; but apart from eigners who live among them with liule or no pro- | the creditors, not an honest man had any connection tection.

Janem Darm, Bart,

#. M. Pimipotetiary in China,

B-We have heard with mingled feelings of herrar and indignation of the draufal tragedy lately enacted in the waighbourhood of Canton, and as Brilch Bigbe jects realdent at Shanghai, fool imperatively called opon, with unanimous voice thas publicly to record timents. at so momentous a period of British interc??em

with Chies.

Justice demands, and must receive a full mess of retribution for the paparalleled atrocity; but this can be socosolation to the sorrowing relatives of the unfor Tunate victims, as thay mourn their unalmaly fate, and reflect that for a period of forty-eight boars, with death before their vai no their only friend, the most earl and revolting tortures were inflicted in the absence of

any arm to save.

While we participate in thais grief), we feel that they will reciprocate our conviction that the previous warns logs of impending dangar were too lightly regarded, and that the continued presence of efficiant protection di Canton might Providentially have averted the pro-

1 catastrophe.

We trust that a diffrent Use of policy to thai hitherto parsed will now be adopted ; and that so con. Tineing a proof of the litter and deep rooted heality of the people of the Cantes province towards we will be met by Your Excellency with such vigour and de. termination as may at length teach them, and teach the vation, then forbearance has its limits, and that merey cannot for ever avert the Just paishment of guilt. In this view, we would respectfully bring to Year Eteel- lency's notice our position and the relation in which we stand with the people of this part of China.

The friendly latercourse hitherto subsisting between the foreign residents of Shanghai and the surrounding population, le to be attributed mainly to the salutary lesson taught in the latter during the late war ; strong- thened, so trost, by intercourse with a nation whom they had previously only known by report, and that in terms of grow misreprmentation. We cannot, how- ever, conceal from ourselves the fact that, our presmice bare le one of sulferen?a alene, and borne with no good will. According to the spirit displayed by Your Ex- cellency at the present erlain, may thla pasive toleration merge into subinlisten, or be farmed into hostility to the disappointment of ibi expretations formed by Her Mas jesty's Govertiment of the steady advancement of Bri- tish Interests at this place.

Je regard to the official recognition of British Chamber of Corona Shanghai to which your letter more part cularly refers, I fear there are local circumstances which would render a surp of this nature injurious rather than beneficial to British Inarena.

Extreme Jealousy on the part of the foreign sommunity has been manifested as often as this question has been ag tated among the Chinese; and on the last decalm, but a few months ago, the determination of the Ci

In conclusion, we would respectfully and sernantly urge upon Your Excellency that our existence in China depends on a moral as well as a physical ascendancy; and that if we do not take timely warning and su rights by a course of the most vigscans and un- Binching policy, our position in China may soon be no longer sewable.” With a request that you will have the

A VISIT TO PITCAIRN'S I^LAND. Her Majesty's brig Spy arrived off this island on the 26th of February, and was boarded by George Adama and some more natives shortly after she berto. George Adams is the son of the colebrat ad John Adams, the father of the colony, the mu ineer of the Bounty West ashore in a oulter, piloted by George Adams. Landing place a very small sandy beach with many rocks, and in the breeze impracticable. We were met on the beach by some of the natives, who cordially wel comed us to Pitcaire's Island, and showed us the way to the market-place, up a steep and rugged park, winding along the cliff, and throng a beautiful variety of all kinds of tropical flowers and shrubs. The scene when we arrived at the summit was picturesque in the extreme. The whole of the aires, men, women, and children, headed by Mr Neppe, the schoolmaster, had assembled in a space of about half an sore aquare, carpeted with thick soft gras, and eaunpied overhead by the spreading busechs of cocoa-nut tree, to meet the strangers, all of them being dressed in their gayest. Their welcome was warm, all of them advancing and shaking us by the band, and addtoming we in per fectly good English. We were extremely pleased by their quiet and decorous behaviour. As soon uwe bad made acquaintance with them all, we were led through gently winding paths to the prin cipal village, where the court-house and church stands, as there were one or two slight disagree- tenta about land, which they wished to be brought before Lieutenant Wooldrige, 'commander of the Spy, and whe very speedily disposed of them without their having evinced, during the investigation or afterwards, the lost feeling of discontent or die plouture. The church issa cost building, well arranged, with a pulpit and benches, and is used au well for a court-house as a church. Mr Noppe, the schoolmatig, performs the various oc We were shown the old gun belonging to the Bounty, that had been under water for 66 years, and which was now lying near the court-hours We villed old Adams's house and grave, the last of which is situated le a beautiful spot next to his wife's grave, and kept in trim order.

Victoria, December, ISIT

(From the Overland Friend of Chine, Jan. 29) W mentioned last month that for wretches had been executed at the village of tlwang-chu- kee, said to have been four of the murderers of our countrymen. According to the Chinese notions of justice, these four lives, and those of the two men killed in their attack on the six En-

subject, they would be dispelled by two docu mente published in the China Mail, Chey are

id to be despatches from two Magistrates of Nanbao intimating to Keying that they had each siered two of the murderers. The docu- ments bear fraud on the face there. They are both dated the 19th December, Keying having informed Sir John Davis of these captures on the 17th! The truth is that Koying was making the best terms he could and possibly when he found that four heads would be taken as “part of my demands," the official report of the seizure was drawn up; though we have great doubts as to whether the documents are of Chinese origio at all. They read inore like the bungling efforts of a European to copy the Chinese stylo, and may have been concocted for a very un- worthy purpose. The framer is probably but tyro at the traile, and bence the over-sight as to dates, as well as the omission t? naine the place from whence dated. It is not the leasi painful circumstance connected with our pre- sent difficulties, that suspicion of a desire to malign the dead should attach itself at least to one British subject, and another who nominally has that honour. In the face of the prepara- tions made by the villagers for the mur der of all foreigners who might land it was urged by the official paper again and again that with "ordinary discretion" there was no throven upon the Englishman, and the illusory danger. The blame of affrays was invariably punishments reported in Keying's despatches were held up as evidence of the impartiality of the Chinese Commissioner. This agreed exactly with Bir John Davis's despatches to the Foreign Secretary,and was considered an amplopology for withdrawing the Pluto. There is now an evi dent desire to throw thy blame of the Hwang chu-kee murders upon the victims. In the al leged vemped up despatches from the Nanbao Magistrates, one of the four primmers is made to say that the six Englishman fied insulted a woman and then shut a boy dead. Another prisoner repeats the story, the truth of which has been obscurely, though repeatedly hinted at in the paper in question. The perversity of disposition which induces an individual obati- nately to adhere to an expressed opinion is obetinacy when it battens on the reputation to be censured, but what will be maid of such of the dead 1

ut I have the boomer of batting to Your Excellency, In the inclosures marked them to 1, my correspondence with the Imperial Commissioners the subject of the protection to be afforded to British subjects on their ex- cursions, by the local authorities, in accordance with the Instruction contained in your Despatch of th· lat faunare, Your Excellency will have perceived, from the Imperial Camaioner's communication in me dated the 8th Instant of which I tranunlited a copy in my Despatch Na.

He also lalands in future ja despatch oflearn at times to proceed in

way places and explain matters clearly to the people, Its concludes by saying that he has used the utmost exper tion both of mid and body in what he has dams for the protectios of our countrymen, met sparing kla off?rts In be slightest degree.

From the Imperial Commissioner's letters of the Beh and 9th fotant it appears, moreover, that in consequence of orders issued by him to the District Magistrates of Nah hot and Pyran-yn, each of them has appointed template and axperionedd Palleemen, formed by long service, who have been placed under the control of the especial oficer at the guardhouse of Old China Street, for the purpose that whenever British Kubjects are disirous of making an ens cursion, I may previously madmate the use to the special offers there, we will then appoint whether mes may be deemed necessary to proceed with them in to be available for their protettion

(True Extract)

A. R. JOHNSTON,

This Notification and its accompanying er. tract were received with derision, it being the general impression that after a vast deal of gas. conade we were to be pacified with twenty Chinese policemen subject to additional safe- gaurd, and further modifications | Some low would not believe that Bristish diplomacy was thus to be disgraced-that British subjects were to have their lives still farther endangered by blind compliance with the "devi wishes of Keying. They would rather look upon it as a ruse to gain time. It appeared impossible that the demands, which Bir Jobo Davis said would satisfy every one for the pre. sent, should consist of the execution of four of the murderers a guard for the protection of fu reigners, with ertain mysterious safeguarda and modifications, and the idea of its being a sestle- ment in full ww scouted, The acceptance of a guard is in itself a most dangerous step; it is establishing a syste?n of espionage of which the Chinese will avail themselves, at the same time the force being quite ineffective.

glishmen, is full compensation for the end blood. el murders. We will not particularly discuss this point ; every man with's British heart will scout the idea of six guilty crimmals being equi. valent to six inancent men. The doctrine once admitted, and there is an end to even the sha dun of personal safety for foreigners in any part of the Chinese empire. These mu ders dia to be desk with as a tational crimo,--a gravo offence committed by one people upon another, --and the atonement must be commensurato, A mere homicide in a brawl or bonickles result ing from the rudsen outbreak of popular feeling are very diff?rcol affairs, and the distinction must not be lost sight of. The Hwang-chu-kec murders were the result of deliberately devised plans, sanctioned by the Elders of the people; published in all the villages; and known to the authorities. No measures word taken to frus rate there plans; if they were not instigated by the Excentive, they were at least left up- disturbed. The British Plenipotentiary kaverta that "the Canton people have been encouraged against foreigners, and are ready to murder them when they merely take recreation in the country under the treaty." The responsibilty lies heavy upon a corrupt government and corrupt people.

While the villagers were organizing de ultis and maturing these diabo- real plans, Keying was writing hollow des patches to Sir John Davis, aasturing him of the Pacific disposition of the people. The Envoy was deceived by these delusive statements, and withdrew the protection which the Britub go verument all but demanded should be kept constantly near the factories; a portion of the press added to the mistaken feeling of security y bold assertions that no danger was to be apprehended from the villagers. The result je one of the most melancholy tales of blood and erucity that ever sullied a page of history. Even now, after the lapse of two mouths, the mird cannot without difficulty be brought to a contrinplation of the fiendish crueltics came froes Ella Excellency, H. M. Plenipotentiary, &c., e..ined by self prohibitions which are as power-

Alarmed by the circular the representative of the United States addressed Sir John Davis, and received an answer which appears irro concilable with the circular itself, or at lenst leads to the conviction that the circular was very uncalled for, only causing unnecessary alarm and expense, British subjects are per- fectly aware of the rule the application of which is contingent upon a mere posibility," without having much a coatly intimation of it:

On the 20th January another Notification appeared, introducing snother extract from Mr Macgregor's despsicles. It now become evi dent that negotiation had again been fruitless, carrying his threats into effect. Koying was not and that the British Envoy had no intention of

Keying alleges that the well prohibitions" of the people here more mal power than the prohibitious of the authorities, and after sending runners through the villages admonishing them, and issuing pr clamation to the surge effect, the whole affair is len with the sovereign people. The Gantry of Canton have also issued a proclamation "admonishing and commanding the country anity with the foreigners. The latter procla people that they must all praction peace and mation bears no date, and in all likelihood it was concocted in the Commissioners office, It is said that the villages have been visited by a foreigner versed in the language, and not a single proclamation was found, the villagers exhibiting their usual ferocity.

It will be observ ed that Keying tacitly acknowleges his inability to control the people, and foreigners are tow at the tender mercies of a mob only restra-

Bottlements self-

Hongkong should have been made a fitting seat for our representative power, and a fitting specimen of the free trade we bloat to merce has been delven from ite fine barbour; and British power has been mainly employed in screw. ing a revenue from reots and monopolis.

Whether, with the Sve poria on the Chinese mainland open, Hongkong would ever have become place of very considerable trado, is a polal on which we need bot stop to weigh the conflicting evidence. It was first selected by Captaic Elliott as the best situation near Canton, from the fineness of the barbour, and from its eligibility as a statica for ships to rest at. That was before the extension of our trade to the northern port. But it ame probable that neither Hongkong nor Chuan-bad wo retined the Isner island-wore likely to become preeminent places of trade-in the vicingga, res pectively, of Canton and Shanghel. We ought, however, at fenat to have given our insular ontle meat a chance. The past local administration has given it no chance; sod, in addition to all direct British landers, Chinese someness was offered to insert a clase in the Supplementary Treely, obliging all junks resorting to Hongkong to bring permits from one of the five ports. The effect of this might have been anticipated-either the pre- hibition, or the taxation by the mandarine of the native trade. This clause proved so palpably veza lions, that it has lately been tacitly disregardl witbon complaint from the Chinese authorities. But it operated long enough to divert the junk trado fein Hongkong.

had been better carried out in detail; and if we were to prescribe to ourselves the nar west possible limits of territorial possession, we would have sought to establish a seat of more un quivocal moral influence. Hongkong must be brignideant, except se a British residence, and a British port; on its administration must depend ely in arefalange and importance to British tel. It is not disputed in any quarter that has hitherto failed to answer expectation; and or this there are abundant reasons, apart from
