Et may appear sin. gular that or John Davis-or any man of common 10410-would officially recogai a measure injurious to the interests of commerce and repugnant to a treaty the integrity of which he was bound to sustain ; but the fact is doniable. The co-hong system, so far as

gards, Cassin, was thus in full operation, sanc- Gooed by H. M. Plenipotentiary, and had that distingumhod individual boon continued a few office, ulk and other articles years longer would also have been monopolied upon his pet plan of granting licences.

The Sungtai hong bold the monopoly for three years; the partners of the Hung, we are informed, were Tony-wei-chuen(the same who had been deprived of the monopoly (), a moda- | rin of potty rank named Mih-king-pih and his brother; the other nominal partners were the hong gervants.

The gold was discovered in May last, and up to the 12th of Oe tober, it was estimated that $4,000,000 had been taken from the earth. Thoumada are Bocking there, and probably in the satires of twelve months there will be 50,000 people in the country. Let u suppose that during the year 1840 the average number of laborets will amasat to 20,000 and that their arscete product of gold is #10 sech per day. This number of Jabouters, working 313 days in the year, would produce 302,000,000 worth of gold per annum, or more than a third more than the whole prodest of gold during the year 1846, and n?a half ones than the entire juodust of silver das. ing that year. This amount added to the yearly product of gold from other onenes, would swell the annust product of gulu to over $100,000,000 against $37,000,000, the onus product of silver.

A LITTLE before noon to-day (Tuesday) a Na, tive Indian Servant on his way to the Gar. den at West Point for somn flowers for his em- ployer was attacked by three Chinese, near

the hands of a liberal Executive.

The 8th clause of the draf petition reads, *Your Brillioners canost too strongly express thest conviction of the bad moral affect produced on the mlede of the Chinese by the present system adopted in the Supreme Court, whereby the ends of justies are too often frustrated, and parties oorking redraw are obliged to call in the assistance, in Civil enito, of Attorneys, whose charge are excessive, but whose servicm aro ?rindared dreessary by forme which none but an Attornay under-

alanda ; wheresa these, in the opinion of Your Petitian. ere, should be so simple as to wimit of any one pleading

his own cause."

Parties on the spot will understand that this refore especially to the expenses of litigation in Hongkong, and to the heavy bills of costs which have been run up against Chinese suitors, who ignorant of our laws and acting upon bad ad- vice, have rushed into litigation when they had no chance of success. But to others the fan

Furius wrong in the court itself; such an opinion is tely Mr Cameron of the Royal Engineer Dupar-foreign to the gentlemen who drow up the tment was passing with a capital dog which fastened on one of the rascals; he was captured and lodged at the Central Police Station.


We might avail ourselves of the publication of the drails to descant at greater longth on the matters to which they refor; but this appears in a great degree uncebessary, as we feel en isfied that our readers will think over them calmly. There certainly is a general desire that these documents should embody the opinions antertained by a majority of the European inha- bitants of Hongkong.

We have much pleasure in publishing the subjoin ed Circalar from the Contul at Amoy. The Con- sut has apparently found that his former restrictions ware unnecessary, and much to his credit has not only withdrawn them, but arramped with the Hau- kwan to dispense with shipping off and landing chops akogether:—

Auligue with the Barbada establishment, the rate would be raised to upwards of 32 per hood, an a- mount which the colony could not bear. This is precisely what has been done in Hongkong, with a population less than that of Antigua we have an ex- penditure greater than Barbados; to pay which the fired population (Chinese included) would require to be taxed at the rate of ?4 a band, a burden which is not borne by any British possession, nor could the rerourced of any colony support it.

Many of our readers have probably been ignorant of the existence of " the Journal of the Indian Archipelago," and our duty of directing observation to it has been too long neglected our present notice is purposely brief, in order to give an extract from the prospectus, where the design of the work is fully disclosed :-

Tus attention which, for some time past, has been attracted to the Indian Archipelage recent approximation to Europe by the ment of steam communication, encourage the hope that the time bas now arrived when a Journal de E-voted to this region may meet with readers. After the period when the writings of Me ManaDEN, Sir T. 8.

and at Macao than it does at Com sing-moon, but much is undoubtedly the fact, and because is readily explained. Foreign merchants in Canton only sell opium deliverable in the outer waters that is at Cum-sing-moon, Macao or Hongkong. the buyers pay the money in ad- vance and receive orders for the drug, which is delivered at the place named on presenta tinn of the orders. It is needless to say that these purchases are made with the full intention of snuggling the opium into China, and that Cum-sing-moon possamos peculiar advantages for this sort of traffic with the Canton river. Re- cently, however, a rigid blockade has been es- tablished by the Mandarins, and the smuggling boats are only allowed to pass on payment of a fee (or duty) of 650 a chest, and in conse- quence the market value of opium at the ropean settlements, where the trade is free and unletiered, is usually $10 a cheat above the Com-sing-moon rate.

We have repeatedly expressed an opinion that ultimately thin colnay will be the seat of a large trade in opiums, both no regards the ex- tensive purchases of the professional Chinese contrabandistas and the moderate dealings of the Junk traders. To's considerable extent this opinion luss been verified, and if no “un- toward affair" intimidates the Chinese, at no distant day the whole or nearly the whole of the Cum-sing-moon trade will be concentrated

The figure and face of Thiers are ludicrous enough. He is a little man, somewhat about four feet and a half high, with large bead, and larger spectacles. The expression of his eye is so furtive, that were not known his paros in so well lined as to place him beyond such temptations a casual sportator would immediately button up his pocke on the little tonn's approach. He is a great bater of the English-bastilled Paris chiedy to keep | them at a distance-looked maligally unatterable when he visited them here and sasvin?s on seprei of dignity, meant to be overpowering, bat in reali ly only abound, whenever he comes in kontruaL with the son of perfute Albiam.
