And whereas in and by a certain Statute made and passed in the Fifty-ninth Year of His Majesty King George the Third, intituled "An Act to prevent the Enlisting or Engagement of Ilis "Majesty's Subjects to serve in a Foreign Service, and fitting out or equipping; in His Majesty's Dominions, Vessels for Warlike Purposes, without His Majesty's Licence," it is amongst other Things declared and enacted as follows:-

"That if any Person within any Part of the United Kingdom, or in any Part of His Majesty's Dominions, beyond the Seas, shall, without the Leave and Licence of His Majesty for that Purpose first had and obtained as aforesaid, equip, furnish, fit out or arm, or attempt or endeavour to equip, furnish, fit out, or arm, or procure to be equipped, furnished, fitted out, or armed, or shall knowingly aid, assist or be concerned in the equipping, furnishing, fitting out, or arming, of any Ship or Vessel, with Intent or in order that such Ship or Vessel shall be employed in the Service of any Foreign Prince, State, or Potentate, or of any Foreign Colony, Province, or Part of any Province or People, or of any Person or Persons exercising or assuming to exercise any Powers of Government in or over any Foreign State, Colony, Province, or Part of any Province or People, as a Transport or Store Ship, or with Intent to cruise or commit Hostilities against any Prince, State, or Potentate, or against the Subjects or Citizens of any Prince, State, or Potentate, or against the Persons exercising or assuming to exercise the Powers of Government in any Colony, Province, or Part of any Province or Country, or against the Inhabitants of any Foreign Colony, Province, or Part of any Province or Country, with whom His Majesty shall not then be at War, or shall within the United Kingdom or any of His Majesty's Dominions, or iu any Settlement, Colony, Territory, Island, or Place, belonging or subject to His Majesty, issue or deliver any Commission for any Ship or Vessel, to the Intent that such Ship or Vessel shall be employed as aforesaid, every such Person so offending shall be deemed guilty of a Misdemeanor, and shall, upon Conviction thereof upon any Information or Indictment, be punished by Fine and Imprisonment, or either of them, at the Discretion of the Court in which such Offender shall be convicted; and every such Ship or Vessel, with the Tackle, Apparel, and Furniture, together with all the Materials, Arms, Ammunition, and Stores which may belong to or be on board of any such Ship or Vessel, shall be forfeited; and it shall be lawful for any Officer of His Majesty's Customs, or Excise, or any Officer of His Majesty's Navy, who is by Law empowered to make Seizures for any Forfeiture incurred under any of the Laws of Customs or Excise, or the Laws of Trade and Navigation, to seize such Ships and Vessels aforesaid, and in such Places and in such Manner in which the Officers of His Majesty's Customs or Excise and the Officers of His Majesty's Navy are empowered respectively to make Seizures under the Laws of Customs and Excise, or under the Laws of Trade and Navigation; and that every such Ship aud Vessel, with the Tackle, Apparel, and Furniture, together with all the Materials, Arms, Ammuni tion, and Stores which may belong to or be on board of such Ship or Vessel, may be prosecuted and condemned in the like Manner and in such Courts as Ships or Vessels may be prosecuted and condemned for any Breach of the Laws made for the Protection of the Revenues of Customs and Excise, or of the Laws of Trade and Navigation."

And it is in and by the said Act further enacted,—

"That if any Person in any Part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, or in any Part of His Majesty's Domi- nions beyond the Seas, without the Leave and Licence of His Majesty for that Purpose first had and obtained as aforesaid, shall, by adding to the Number of the Guns of such Vessel, or by changing those on board for other Guns, or by the Addition of any Equip ment for War, increase or augment, or procure to be increased or augmented, or shall be knowingly concerned in increasing or augmenting, the Warlike Force of any Ship or Vessel of War or Cruizer, or other armed Vessel, which at the Time of her Arrival in any Part of the United Kingdom or any of His Majesty's Dominions was a Ship of War, Cruizer, or armed Vessel in the Service of any Foreign Prince, State, or Potentate, or of any Person or Persons exercising or assuming to exercise any Powers of Government in or over any Colony, Province, or Part of any Province or People belonging to the Subjects of any such Prince, State, or Potentate, or to the Inhabitants of any Colony, Province, or Part of any Province or Country under the Control of any Person or Persons so exercising or assuming to exercise the Powers of Government, every such Person so offending shall be deemed guilty of a Misdemea nor, and shall, upon being convicted thereof upon any Information or Indictment, be punished by Fine and Imprisonment, or either of them, at the Discretion of the Court before which such Offender shall be convicted.”

Now, in order that none of Our Subjects may unwarily render themselves liable to the Penal- ties imposed by the said Statute, We do hereby strictly command, that no Person or Persons what- soever do commit any Act, Matter, or Thing whatsoever contrary to the Provisions of the said Statute, upon Pain of the several Penalties by the said Statute imposed, and of Our high Dis- pleasure.

And We do hereby warn and admonish all Our loving Subjects, and all Persons whatsoever entitled to Our Protection, to observe towards each and all of the aforesaid Sovereigns, their Sub- jects and Territories, and towards all Belligerents whatsoever with whom we are at Peace, the Duties of Neutrality; and to respect, in all and each of them, the Exercise of those Belligerent Rights which We, and Our Royal Predecessors, have always claimed to exercise.

And We do hereby further warn all Our loving Subjects, and all Persons whatsoever entitled to Our Protection, that if any of them shall presume, in contempt of this Our Royal Proclamation and of Our high Displeasure, to do any Acts in derogation of their Duty as Subjects of a Neutral Sovereign, in a War between other Sovereigns, or in violation or contravention of the Law of Nations in that Behalf, as more especially by breaking, or endeavouring to break, any Blockade lawfully and actually established by or on behalf of any or either of the said Sovereigns, by carrying Officers, Soldiers, Despatches, Arms, Ammunition, Military Stores or Materials, or any Article or Articles considered and deemed to be Contraband of War, according to the Law or modern Usages of Nations, for the Use or Service of any or either of the said Sovereigns, that all Persons so offend- ing, together with their Ships and Goods, will rightfully incur and be justly liable to hostile Capture, and to the Penalties denounced by the Law of Nations in that Behalf.

And We do hereby give notice, that all Our Subjects and Persons entitled to Our Protection who may misconduct themselves in the Premises will do so at their Peril, and of their own Wrong, and that they will in nowise obtain any Protection from Us against such Capture or such Penalties as aforesaid, but will, on the contrary, incur Our high Displeasure by such Misconduct.

Given at Our Court at Buckingham Palace, this Thirteenth Day of May, in the Year of Our Lord One thousand eight hundred and fifty-nine, and in the Twenty-second Year of Our Reign.

NOTICE TO SHIPMASTERS AND OTHERS.

HARBOUR MASTER'S OFFICE, 25th July, 1859.

The Acting Harbour Master urgently calls the attention of Masters and others in charge of Merchant vessels, to the Notification (herewith again inserted) issued from this Department the 14th May, 1859, for the management of Vessels during the Typhoon months; and desires it to be understood that any one neglecting the Regulations therein set forth, will be proceeded against under Section VIII. of Ordinance No. 11 of 1845.

NOTICE.

W. II. NEWMAN,

Acting Harbour Master,

HARBOUR MASTER'S OFFICE, HONGKONG, 15th May, 1859.

It is hereby notified to Masters and others in charge of Merchant Vessels, that, on or before the 1st June proximo, all Ships in Port are required to move over to the North side of the Harbour, and there moor with Forty-five Fathoms of Chain to each Anchor, open Hawse to the North-cast.

A straight Line from the North-west Point of the Island of Hongkong, intersecting the Southernmost House on the Beach at Limeburner's Village, Cheem-sha-tsui, extending towards the second high ridge from the North of the Island of Lantao, such Line running nearly East and West, will be the Line, south of which no Merchant ship shall lay during the Typhoon months, without special permission from the Harbour Master.

To facilitate the business of the Port during fine weather, Vessels actually loading or unloading may; on written application from Consignees and request of the Master, receive special permission to lay over on the Town side of the Harbour whilst so engaged,-such Vessels having their sails bent and all clear to stand over for the opposite Coast on the first prognostic of foul weather. It is, however, clearly to be understood, that Vessels pursuing this course do so entirely at the responsibility of Masters and Agents.

Merchant Ships, (with the exception of thoso calling for orders, and whose stay in Port will not exceed from two to three days,) will keep their Topgallant Masts and Yards on Deck, Flying Jibboom in, and particular at- tention must be paid to keep their Hawse clear.

As some Ships now in Harbour are moored in a most slovenly manner, so slack that it is impossible to keep their Chains from twisting, the Harbour Master finds it necessary to state that, in mooring Vessels, Masters are required to veer out Ninety Fathoms of Chain on their first Anchor, and when taut in the required direction, then drop their second Anchor, veering out on that Chain, and heaving in Forty-five Fathoms of their first.

Persons neglecting these precautionary measures will be subject to the full penalty provided in Section VIII of Ordinance No. 11 of 1845.

VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF HONGKONG.

No. 6 of 1859.

WEDNESDAY, 18th MAY, 1859.

PRESENT:

HIS EXCELLENCY THE ACTING Governor aND ALL THE MEMBERS, EXCEPT THE AUDITOR-GENERAL,

MR LYALL, AND MR DENT.

Excellency SIR JOHN BOWRING having directed, on the 30th ultimo, that the Meeting of the Council which stood adjourned to the 2d instant, should be postponed till further notice,-The Council was summoned for yesterday, the 17th instant, at Noon, by order of His Excellency The Acting Governor; but it appearing at the expiration of the time allowed by the 5th Rule of the Standing Orders, that the number of Members present on the occasion was insufficient to form a Quorum, the Council stood adjourned to this day, and met accordingly, pursuant to Notice sent round to Members at half-past 10 A.M., as ordered by the Acting Governor. e Minutes of the Council held on the 21st April, were read and approved.

Excellency The Acting Governor laid on the Table the following Petition, received through the Clerk of Councils, on the 23d of April:-

TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR, IN LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

The Humble Petition of WILLIAM THOMAS BRIDGES, Doctor of Civil Law, Barrister-at-Law, and Practitioner-in-Law, in the Colony of Hongkong.

SHEWETH,-

That your Petitioner has been informed that Ordinance 12 of 1858 is under consideration for its amendment at the present time before your Excellency in Council.

That it appears to your Petitioner, that a great hardship has been inflicted upon your Petitioner and other Barristers-at-Law, acting as local Practitioners-in-Law, by the Third Section of such Ordinance.

That such hardship consists in this, that whereas all other distinctions between Barristers and Solicitors are done away with, one is yet preserved, which admits of any number of Solicitors or Attornies being in partnership together, but denies the same right to such Practitioners in Law as are Barristers in the mother-country.

That an injury is thereby inflicted both on the practitioner, and on the client, inasmuch as the Barrister-practitioner is ompelled on absenting himself from the Colony for health or a visit to the mother-country, to break up altogether a business con- nction which it may have been the labour of years to bring together, whereas the interests of the Solicitor-practitioner can be looked after by the remaining partner or partners; and the interests of the client are also similarly affected, as those who employ Barristers as their legal advisers must necessarily be compelled to transfer all their matters in hand to strangers, instead of con- tinuing it in the same office under the superintendence of the locum tenens or successor of their original Counsel.

That your Petitioner confidently submits that no valid reason whatsoever can be adduced for making any distinction in this respect between either class of legal Practitioners in this Colony, and as undoubted advantages have already resulted from the nalgaination of the two branches of the profession, it is but fair and reasonable all restrictions upon this amalgamation should be done away with, unless valid and existing reasons can be shewn to the contrary,

Your Petitioner therefore humbly prays your Excellency.in Council to repeal the whole or so much of the Third Section of Ordinance 12 of 1858, as to your Excellency and the Legislative Council shall seein meet,

And your Petitioner, &c.,

the same having been read,--

(Signed)

WILLIAM T. BRIDGES.

Vas moved by the Acting Chief Justice, and seconded by the Colonial Secretary,that the said Petition do lie

SIR-I transmit herewith for your information and guidance, the Copy of a Letter which I have received from the Lords of the bittee of Privy Council for Trade, with the Copy of a Circular which their Lordships have issued to the Shipping Masters at the various of the United Kingdom, instructing them to warn Coloured Seamen, and the Masters who may engage them, of the state of the Law th respect to free Negroes who may land in the Southern States of America, and of the necessity of such Coloured Seamen being prepared a evidence of their place of Birth and Nationality; and I have to request that you will cause similar instructions to be issued to Shipping sters and others in the Ports of the Colony under your government.-I have the honour to be, Sir, your obedient humble servant,

Governor SI II. ROBINSON, &c., &c., &c., Hongkong.

NEWCASTLE.

OFFICE OF COMMITTEE OF PRIVY COUNCIL FOR TRADE,

WHITEHALL, 23d June, 1859.

SIR-I am directed by the Lords of the Committee of Privy Council for Trade to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 8th int, with its inclosures, relative to the difficulties which occur in ascertaining and proving the nationality of British Coloured Seamen

in the Southern Ports of the United States.

I am to acquaint you, for the information of his Grace the Duke of Newcastle, that copies of the papers forwarded in your letter have dy been salinitted to my Lords by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, to whom my Lords have stated their opinion that it would He possible in this country to furnish Coloured Seamen with certificates of nativity as proposed by Mr Barclay, as the Shipping Masters re whom they are engaged could have no means of ascertaining their nationality.

It would be practicable in cases where Coloured Seamen are shipped in a British ship for any voyage from a port in the United Kingdom tart in the United States, to furnish certificates that they have been so shipped, but it is doubtful whether any advantage would be deriv- from granting such certificates.

It has appeared to my Lords that the only remedy for the evil complained of would be to instruct all Shipping Masters before whom ured Seiten are engaged for voyages to the Southern Ports of the United States to warn such Seamen, and the Masters who engage of the ine nvenience and risk they run from the operation of the laws concerning the admission of Free Negroes into the Slave States tias Republic, and to point out the precautions which it is desirable that Masters who determine to ship Free Negroes should take.

With this view, my Lords have issued a Circular (a copy of which is inclosed) to the Shipping Masters in the various ports of the United dom, and they desire me to suggest for the consideration of the Duke of Newcastle, whether a Circular to the same effect might not with ware

be issued to Shipping Masters or Officers of Customs in those Colonies from which Coloured Scamen are in the habit of shipping to United States. I have the honour to be, Sir, your obedient servant,

JAMES BOOTH.

BOARD OF TRADE, 14th June, 1859.

The attention of my Lords has been directed to the stringent laws in force, in the Southern States of Americh, with regard to the admis- of Free Negroes,

A happened that Coloured Searren serving in British Merchant ships have suffered in Americau ports from the operation of these and when the British Compal has on tracentred to protect them, he has been embarrassed by the difficulty of producing proof of their pality.

The Bonghong Government Gazette.

[OCTOBER 22, 1859.

Under these circumstances, and in the absence of any means available in this country of furnishing Coloured Scamen with official cert. Beates of birth, my Lords think, that all Shipping Masters before whom Coloured Se una are engaged for voyages to the Southern Ports the United States should warn such Seamen, and the Masters who engage them, of the inconvenience and risk to which they may be expo- through the operation of the laws above mentioned, and should point out to them, in case the Masters determine to carry Free Coloure Sonmen to suel ports, that they should be prepared with full evidence of their place of birth and their nationality.

The Governor said that he would be glad to receive at an early date the remarks which had been called for from th

Coloninal Treasurer, and Messrs Jardine and Dent, on the ultimate conditions of the Postal Authorities Home for placing the Post Office at Hongkong under the control of the Local Government.

A question was then put by the Acting Attorney General, relative to Ordinance No. 5 of 1858; and some remark

were made by the Colonial Secretary on the possible necessity of submitting to the Council, at an early da amendments of the Markets' and Pawnbroking Ordinances.

Criminals were necessarily sentenced to as long periods of penal servitude as formerly of transportation und Statute Law.

Mr Adams under these circumstances advised that power be given to the Court to pass sentences of pena! servitudo for reduced periods.

VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF HONGKONG.

No. 8 of 1859.

WEDNESDAY, 9th NOVEMBER, 1859.

PRESENT:

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR, AND ALL THE MEMBERS.

Council met to-day by special Summons.

Minutes of the Council held on the 21st September last, were read and approved.

Colonial Secretary observed that, under existing circumstances, there was not the same necessity as before for the motion on the subject of the Hongkong Press, of which he had given notice. He thought it right, however, to endeavour to obviate the current misrepresentation of his object in the intended motion. His intention had been solely to provide some substantial security for the Public against the scurrilous attacks of a portion of the Press, and the means which he had designed to propose for this purpose were such as no respectable Editor would object to. With this explanation he would, with His Excellency's perinission, withdraw his notice of

motion.

Excellency The Governor laid upon the Table the Estimates for 1860, and having explained the financial posi- tion and prospects of the Colony, moved the first reading of a Bill, entitled “An Ordinance to apply a Sum not exceeding Ninety Thousand Pounds to the Public Service of the Year 1860." The Bill was accordingly read a first time; and the second, reading was fixed for Monday, the 21st instant, at Noon, to which Day the Council adjourned.

Ene Road, a 3-inch branch proceeds through Elgin Street, and supplies the twin tanks near the Union Chapel. These latter contain 1,000 gallons, and are 151 feet above the sea; a 4-inch pipe is laid therefrom to Hollywood Road, and a 3-inch pipe continued through Peel street to the Queen's Road; a branch 3-inch pipe terminates at the Aberdeen and Hollywood Road junction, and another 3-inch branch ceeds through the West end of Gage Street and on to Gough Street steps. At all the cross streets, fire and ako stop-cocks are placed if

essary,

“A Tank at 100 feet above the sea is placed on the Glenealy Stream at Wyndham Street, with short 3-inch service pipes for fire-cocks By to Wellington Street junction with D'Aguilar Street, and on to Stanley Street junction.

"For present storage of water only an Iron Tank, 180 feet above the sea, for 10,000 gallons, is placed at the head of Tai-ping Shan; two itional Tanks of similar size will be shortly added, and means for a temporary supply are in course of execution. A Stone Tank is also ing built on the Bonham Road, for the supply of Tai-ping Shan West, at 190 feet above the sca; this is to contain 30,000 gallons, and a mporary supply will be laid down to this Tank from the springs in the neighbourhood.

"A Stone Tank for 30,000 gallons is erected on the Bonham Road, at 145 feet above the sea, and a temporary supply is laid thereto. These latter will have no discharge pipes, other than what may be necessary for the withdrawal of water therefrom at present.

"It is also contemplated to erect a small Tank at the West Point Police Station, and a similar one at the Civil Hospital; these will supplied in a temporary manner only, and will contain 5,000 gallons each.

With regard to the Drainage of the Town, I may in general terms observe, that almost all the Streets where houses are erected have Sewers therein, and in the Streets leading direct to the sea large Culverts are placed for the reception and discharge of storm waters.

"A Sum of £2,838 has been authorized for the erection of the Tanks last named, and for the temporary supply thereto, and as far as acticable this will be arranged in a permanent manner; that is, where pressure is requisite iron pipes and proper stop-cocks will be fixed, nd in other respects this temporary service is performed by wooden shoots and earthenware pipes.

"I shall be happy to give any further information of which I may be in possession, observing however, that the plan of the city is open inspection in my office, and that the Ordnance Survey shews clearly all existing streams from which water may be procured, but no means ve been resorted to for the collection of such into Reservoirs, the Tanks now erected being merely for the distribution of water into various stricts."

"Regarding all existing arrangements for the supply of Water to this Town, including all Reservoirs, Tanks, Water-pipes, Drainage, &c., for the purpose of the proper competing for the further supply, I have the honour to report that the present arrangements are so simple, being merely intended for the supply of the Gaol, Police Station, Government House and Offices, and a few Fire-cocks in the vicinity of those buildings, they will not affect in any degree a general scheme which may be proposed for the collection of water for the supply of the

whole town.

"The Tanks in existence having pipes therefrom, are those at Glenealy, Wyndham Street, and Union Chapel; namely, Glenealy 258 feet above the sea, containing 30,000 gallons. A 6-inch main is taken to Glenealy Gate, one branch service pipe is thence taken to Government House, and another 4-inch pipe proceeds to the summit of Caine Road, 223 feet above the sea, from which a 3-inch pipe is laid down passing through the Gaol, Pottinger Street, and to the Central Police Station, with fire and stop-cocks at all the cross roads. From the summit on Caine Road, a 3-inch branch proceeds through Elgin Street, and supplies the twin tanks near the Union Chap These latter contain 20,000 gallons, and are 151 feet above the sea; a 4-inch pipe is laid therefrom to Hollywood Road, and a 3-inch pipe continued through Peel Street to the Queen's Road; a branch 3-inch pipe terminates at the Aberdeen and Hollywood Road junction, and another 3-inch branch proceeds through the West end of Gage Street and on to Gough Street steps. At all the cross strects, fire and also stop-cocks are placed if necessary.

A Tank at 100 feet above the sea is placed on the Glenealy Stream at Wyndham Street, with short 3-inch service pipes for fire-cocks only to Wellington Street junction with D'Aguilar Street, and on to Stanley Street junction.

"For present storage of water only an Iron Tank, 180 feet above the sea, for 10,000 gallons, is placed at the head of Tai-ping Shan; two additional Tanks of similar size will be shortly added, and means for a temporary supply are in course of execution. A Stone Tank is also being built on the Bonham Road, for the supply of Tai-ping Shan West, at 190 feet above the sea; this is to contain 30,000 gallons, and a temporary supply will be laid down to this Tank from the springs in the neighbourhood.

"A Stone Tank for 30,000 gallons is erected on the Bonham Road, at 145 feet above the sea, and a temporary supply is laid thereto. These latter will have no discharge pipes, other than what may be necessary for the withdrawal of water therefrom at present.

"It is also contemplated to erect a small Tank at the West Point Police Station, and a similar one at the Civil Hospital; these will be supplied in a temporary manner only, and will contain 5,000 gallons each.

"With regard to the Drainage of the Town, I may in general terms observe, that almost all the Streets where houses are erected have Sewers therein, and in the Streets leading direct to the sea large Culverts are placed for the reception and discharge of storm waters.

“A Sum of £2,838 has been authorized for the erection of the Tanks last named, and for the temporary supply thereto, and as far as practicable this will be arranged in a permanent manner; that is, where pressure is requisite iron pipes and proper stop-cocks will bo fixed, and in other respects this temporary service is performed by wooden shoots and earthenware pipes.

"I shall be happy to give any further information of which I may be in possession, observing however, that the plan of the city is open for inspection in my office, and that the Ordnance Survey shows clearly all existing streams from which water may be procured, but no means

ave been resorted to for the collection of such into Reservoirs, the Tanks now erected being merely for the distribution of water into various - districts."

g into Committee of the whole Council for the further consideration of the Estimates for 1859, Hourable The Acting Governor expressed himself in the following terms:---

In resuming the adjourned Debate on the Estimates' Ordinance, I wish to lay down the course which So Government, after reflection on last Saturday's Proceedings, has come to the conclusion to adopt.

"Although concurring in the main with the wishes and intentions of the Council as expressed on Saturday, i feel that I cannot do more than sanction the amendment of Sir John Bowring's Ordinance, in so far as that amendment is necessary and imperative.

"I propose therefore to add a certain Sum to the Works and Buildings, which Sum may be stated in vo divisions: 1st, a Sum of £5,653.1.9,-—the Balances due on the Surveyor General's Works already in progress, and which will have to be paid in the ensuing Year. I presume the non-entry of this item in the Estimates to have been an oversight, for I find it distinctly laid down, that un-expended Balances at the end of One Year must be re-charged on the Estimates of the ensuing. This item therefore becomes a necessity; therwise I should have shrunk from interference with the Estimates prepared under Sir John Bowring's direction.

The next Sum is one of £5,000, which was agreed to by the Council for the reasons given by the Colonial Secretary, and supported by the Honourable Mr Lyall. It is an Expenditure that can no longer L delayed, as Government is pledged to perform its engagements to the Public without delay, and that portion of the Bowring Praya opposite the Lower Bazaar and Central Market must be at once carried out. In giving consideration hereafter to the Praya Ordinance, this special provision can always be borne in mind.

"The Lock Hospital Receipts and Expenditure must also appear, as all money passing through the Treasury (as this does by terms of Ordinance No. 12 of 1857) must be regularly brought into the Colonial Accounts of Revenue and Expenditure.

"These are the only alterations I can sanction, and the Ordinance as amended, I will now read to you." Ordinance having been read and agreed to, His Honour resumed :-

Before formally proposing the passing of this Ordinance, I wish to state that I am ready to adopt and rt the Expenditure on Public Works which the Council agreed to on Saturday, but that I can only do this in my Despatch to the Secretary of State; and if the Secretary of State sanctions the Expenditure, I presume that the Council can entertain an amended Estimate. But as time presses, I am anxious to get over this Ordinance, too long delayed already, and I therefore move that this Ordinance as amended do pass, and that the Titlo bo- An Ordinance to apply a Sum not exceeding Seventy-six Thousand Pounds to the Plic Service of the Year, 1859.""

[JANUARY 22, 1859.

Her Majesty's Government would much regret that the commencement of British intercourse with Japan should be signalized by act of smuggling and other illegality or violence on the part of British Subjects, which, although they might for the moment be pecuniari beneficial to the parties concerned in them, would tend to check the dispositions of the Japanese Government to enter into friendly intercours with this country, to paralyze legitimate trade, and to impress the people and Government of Japan with an unfavorable opinion of th British character, which would require a long time to efface.

At all events, it is the duty of Her Majesty's Government to do their utmost to avert any such evil consequences, and I have according to request Your Lordships by to-morrow's Mail, to send instructions to Sir M. Seymour, at once to despatch to Jeddo a Ship of adequ force, and to instruct the Commander of such Ship to inform the Japanese Government that Her Majesty's Government are not privy to an British Sabjects carrying on any illicit trade with Japan, if such should be attempted either before or after the exchange of the ratification: of the Treaty; but that Her Majesty's Government highly disapproving of such conduct, will not extend their protection to any Briti Subjects, who may violate the laws of Japan.

The British commanding officer in Japan should also warn the Masters of any British Ships so trading, that they will not be protecte from the effects of any such illegal proceedings on their part.

It might also be desirable that Sir M. Seymour should, in the manner which he may judge most suitable, make known to Britis Subjects in the Chinese Ports and at llongkong, the course prescribed to Her Majesty's Naval Force in Japan.-I have, &c.,

At a Council held on the 4th instant, I submitted the following Motion for debate:--

"That His Excellency the Governor be requested to lay before this Council all Correspondence between the Local Govern- ment and the Secretary of State for the Colonies, with respect to the proceedings of this Council on the subject of the Opium Farm privilege, and other matters referred to it by Dr Bridges then Member of this Council; and particularly with respect to the selection of the Committee of Inquiry thereupon appointed by this Council, the conduct of its proceedings, the drawing up of its Report, and the confirmation by this Council of the said Report."

The Honourable the Lieut.-Governor, then Acting Governor and Chairman of the Council, refused to allow any discussion what- ever on the Motion. I now respectfully enter this my Protest against such refusal of the Lieut.-Governor, with my reasons for thinking the Motion a proper one to be discussed. My reasons are that :-

---

It is obviously desirable, unless special reasons are shown to the contrary, that this Council, which appointed the Committee of Inquiry and unanimonsly adopted its Report, should be officially and certainly informed whether any, and, if any, what communications on the subject have been made by the Local Government to the Secretary of State, and whether any, and, if any, what communica- tions in reply have been received by the Local Government from the Secretary of State; and it is neither advisable nor respectful to this Council, that it should thus be left as a body in complete ignorance on the subject. It is still less advisable when many Members, if not every individual Member of the Council, must have heard and read in the local Newspapers reports as to the nature of the Cor- respondence referred to. If the Correspondence is such as it is reported to be, it contains a great amount of error, falsehood, and slander, and it is only by the production of the Correspondence, that the Council can ascertain the truth or falsehood of these reports.

The Hongkong Government Gazette.

FEBRUARY 5, 1859.

I have been informed that some Members of this Council have stated, and I have read on more than one occasion in the lo Newspapers, that De Bridges-then Acting Colonial Secretary, and himself the person whose conduct had been under inquiry by t Committee referred to-forwarded to Downing Street the Report of the Committee, immediately after it was presented to the Count before the evidence was printed, and with his answer to it,-in which answer he charged Mr Dent and myself, the only Members of t Committee, with injustic», falsehood, and hostility to himself. He stated, it is reported, that through some management of Mr Anstey we were appointed because we were hostile to him (Dr Bridges),—that we conducted the Proceedings of the Committee under Anstey's influence, and that the Report which purported to be ours, was not sɔ, but was really drawn up by Mr Anstey. The Coun knows that some of these statements are untrue; and I denounce the whole of them not only as untrue, but as the very opposite of tru slaud rous they clearly are. Had I been allowed to speak in favour of my Motion, I could have given facts in evidence of their untru I shall only now state, that I believe that the Honourable Mr Lyall would, if called upon, without any prompting on my part, rek circumstances which manifestly contradict the notion that I was actuated by any hostility to Dr Bridges. I say, that I could har given facts in evidence, but I should not have considered it necessary to do so, until I had ascertained by the production of the Co respondence, that the above statements had been made in it.

But the public reports do more than allege that Correspondence went hence to Downing Street which should not have gone: the further assert, that no communication has ever been made to the Secretany of State, that the Report of the Committee was unanimous approved by the Council. Until I know whether this statement is true, I refrain from remarking on it-I might be but fighti shadows. But how am I, how is this Conncil, to be informed of its truth or falsehood, except by the production of the Correspondence The reports do not even stop here: they further allege that a Despatch has been received from the Secretary of State highly com plimentary to Dr Bridges, and approving of his conduct in reference to the Opium Monopoly. Surely. if there be a Despatch of th nature, virtually condemning a Report unanimonsly adopted by the Council, it is desirable that the Council should be informed thereof and it can only be properly informed by the production of the Correspondence.

These reports of communications sent home, which should not have been sent home-of facts not communicated to the Secretar of State, which ought to have been communicated to him-of a despatch received from the Secretary of State, virtually reflecting up the conduct of this Courcil,-may be true or may be untrue; but they are certainly very widely known and believed, and that rela to the Despatch from the Secretary of State appeared in the China Mail-a Newspaper which, although it is denied that it is t Government organ, does certainly appear to have more ready access to official information than other Newspapers, and which, in i accounts of the Proceedings of the cil which adopted the Report of the Committee of Inquiry, curiously enough omitted. mention of the important fact that the Report was so adopted.

It will scarcely be contended, therefore, that it is not of importance that the truth or untruth of these reports should be know to Mr Dent, Mr Anstey, and myself, whose honor and honesty it is said have been called in question to the Council, whose conduc also, it is said, has been disapproved by the Secretary of State;-to the Government here, that these reports, so injurious to character for sincerity and justice, may, if untrue, be contradicted;-to the Secretary of State, that he may learn whether he has be deceived or not;-to the Public, who are present by their representatives at our sittings, in order that they may know whether an secret injustice has taken place. It is only the production of the Correspondence before this Council, which can satisfy any one on the points.

For the above reasons, I think that my Motion for the production of the Correspondence was a proper one for debate; and for the -game reasons, I respectfully protest against the refusal of the Acting Governor to allow any discussion whatever on the subject.

And the same having been read, and ordered to be entered on the Minutes,- His Excellency remarked, that the Correspondence between himself and the Secretary of State being of a privileged of Ladir

character, he was not at liberty to lay it on the Table without special instructions; and as to the reports in the local Newspapers, if the Honourable Member trusted to them, he would find himself frequently misled. Br His Excellency had no objection to state, that the whole of the Documents connected with the Opium Monopol Committee appointed by the Council had been sent to the Home Authorities, and though acknowledged, they had elicited no opinion from the Secretary of State. In another Despatch, however, of a subseqent date, the Secretary of State desired the acknowledgments of Her Majesty's Government to be conveyed to Dr Bridges, for his very effective services, energy, and judgment, whilst discharging the duties of Acting Colonial Secretary. Read Despatch, No. 44 of 1st October last, from the Secretary of State, conveying instructions for amending

Ordinance No. 8 of 1858.

The Ordinance “to amend Ordinance No. 8 of 1858," was then read a second time,―

With reference to Ordinance No. 5 of 1858, a Despatch having been read from the Secretary of State, with En

It was moved by the Acting Attorney General, seconded by the Colonial Secretary, and carried unanimously,-

That the consideration of the Despatch now read, and of the Ordinance therein referred to, be deferred until some

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

The subjoined Report, for which the thanks of this Government are due to the Members of the Committee for Superintending Government Schools, is published for general information.

By Örder,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Victoria, Hongkong, 11th February, 1859.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

The Committee for superintending the Government Schools in the Island of Hongkong, in presenting to His Excellency the Governor their Report for the year 1858, have but few facts of any special interest on which it is necessary to make any lengthened remarks.

The aggregate number of Scholars attending in the Schools has, during the past year, increased from about 420 to 675, in the five months of January to May 1858 inclusive

The number of Schools is fifteen as in 1857; and the Inspector Rev. W. Lobscheid has male application for permission to establish three additional Schools in the present current year, all of which are intended to promote the instruction of the Hakha population, who emigrate from their homes on the mainland, and dwell for longer or shorter periods in Hongkong. One of these Schools is proposed to be near the Mahomedan Mosque in Victoria; another at the Stone-cutters' Village to the West of the City; and the third is designed for the Village of Tung-lung-chow near East Point. There are three Hakha Schools, in the Villages of Sai-wan, Shaou-ke-wan, and Tai-tam-tuk, included in the fifteen Schools already established.

During the summer months of the South-West monsoon, the fishing season greatly diminishes the number of Scholars, especially in the villages of Shik-pai-wan, (Aberdeen,) Tung-lung-chow, and in a less degree at Shik-ow. This, together with the poverty of the parents, is a great difficulty in the successful promotion of Education.

The severe epidemic an I mortality at Aberdeen and other parts of the Island during the past year, served to break up many Native The threatening edicts of the Mandarins, and the consequent exodus of a large part The Chinese have, however, now generally families, and seriously affected the Government Schools of the Native population of Hongkong, still further served to thin the attendance of the Scholars, returned; and under Mr Lobscheid's efficient Inspectorship, marked improvement has taken place. The Committe notice especially the large attendance of 80 pupils in the School at Chung-wan (Central Victoria), and the presence of a few girls at some of the Schools.

The course of instruction pursued is the general routine of Native Chinese books, with an endeavour to impart at the same time the meaning of the sentences or words more fully than is usual in purely Native systems of teaching at School.

The Pupils learn also portions of the New Testament in Chinese. The meaning is explained, and passages are committed to memory. The first rudiments of spelling and reading English are also taught in the larger schools; and a few facts of Geography are learnt by their finding places on European Maps.

There is the continued difficulty in raising the moral and intellectual tone of the Native teachers. Being dependent on their neighbours, and often having opportunities of adding to their income by drawing up petitions and legal documents, they are frequently in danger of having their attention absorbed in the law-suits and altercations of the Villagers; and to watch over this source of inconvenience a close oversight is required. They are represented by the Inspector, however, as willing and docile; and as not excluding the hope of eventually being elevated and improved.

The Committee feel, that it is no part of their province in the establishment of Government Schools, to discourage or to supersede private Native Schools. Their aim and endeavour is rather to raise the educational standard, and not to place themselves in antagonism to voluntary efforts to provide for themselves a good education for their children on the part of the Chinese population.

It is, however, a natural expectation on the part of the Committee, that the system of Governinent Free Schools, while it confers the boon of education on those who cannot afford to pay for it, will also, as an inevitable result, if they are carried on by efficient Chinese Teachers, and superintended and visited frequently by a European Inspector, with the additional advantage of junior Chinese Teachers in some of the Schools, able to impart the first elements of English reading, tend gradually to attract Chinese Children from private Schools, and to diminish the prospect of any but the most efficient Chinese Teachers being able to support themselyes by their independent efforts.

With respect to the expense of the Schools, the Committee have to observe, that during the past year special causes have operated to retard the increase in the attendance of Scholars; and that in ordinary years the number of Pupils may be expected in future to amount to upwards of 1,000 boys. The sum of £1,500 granted by the Colonial Government for the ensuing year, will thus provide education for each Day-Scholar, at the rate of £1 to £1 10s.-a cost not unreasonably large amid the necessary expenses of European Inspectorship and the scattered position of the Schools.

With the view of rendering their supervision more complete, the Committee have requested Mr Lobscheid to furnish them with a Monthly Journal of his visits; and hope to arrange frequent periods of individual visits from one or another of their number to the outlying Schools, which most need the moral support of such countenance from Europeans.

MACDONNELL LIGHTHOUSE," CAPE NORTHUMBERLAND.

The Bearings are Magnetic. Variation 5' East.

The Master and Wardens of the Trinity House, Port Adelaide, hereby given notice, that the "MACDONNELL LIGHT," on Cape Northum. berland, in Latitude 38° 3'0" S., Longitude 140° 37′ 45′′ E., will be EXHIBITED NIGHTLY on and after the 1st of January, 1859, from Sunset to Sunrise.

The Lighthouse Tower, which is 28 feet in height, stands on a rocky headland elevated 103 feet above high-water mark. The Light, which is catopric and revolving, consists of three faces, and exhibits alternately every minute a White, Red, and Green Light, on an arc visible from seaward from N. 74o E. to N. 66o W. round by south (by compass).

The White Light may be seen from the deck of a moderate-sized vessel about 18 miles, and from aloft at a distance proportionate to the elevation attained.

The Red Light will not be seen, under the most favorable circumstances, at a greater distance than 15 Miles. The Green Light will not generally be distinguished beyond a range of 8 miles.

During hot weather and N.E. Winds, when there is often much refraction, the White Light will frequently be observed at a great distance.

Vessels approaching from the eastward should not bring the White or Red Light to bear to the westward of W.N.W, and when the Green Light becomes visible on that bearing should steer more southerly, in order to give the reef, which stretches to the eastward of Cape Northumberland, a wide berth.

Vessels from the northward, should never sight the White or Red Light on a bearing more southerly than ES., and on distinguishing the Green Light should immediately alter the course so as to give the outlying reefs, to the westward of the Cape running parallel to the coast a mile from the shore, an offing.

pass

In bad weather with the wind hanging from the southward, it will be advisable to give the Cape such an offing as will enable a ship to the Lighthouse without sighting the Green Light, and should the weather, which is occasionally the case, be thick, or it be blowing hard, it will be prudent not to sight the Red Light, which, under such circumstances, would not be seen at the distance first given,

The coast to the north-westward of the Cape soon becomes low, and owing to the heavy ocean swell, which sets directly on the shore, should be very carefully avoided.

The Lightkeepers are provided with a nine-pounder carronade, and a code of Marryat's Signals, which will be used to warn vessels if observed to be standing into danger.

No. A.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

His Excellency SIR JOHN BOWRING, Knight, L.L.D., Her Majesty's Plenipotentiary, &c., &c., is pleased t direet the publication for general information of a Despatch from Captain CRACROFT, R. N. of H. M. S. Nig addressed to be communicated by H. E. the Naval Commander-in-Chief, detailing proceedings against the plunderer- at Cupehi of the British Steamer Five Brothers.

By Order,

Superintendency of Trade, Victoria, Hongkong, 10th February, 1859.

No 3 of 1859.

G. W. CAINE.

REPORTING PROCEEDINGS.

HER MAJESTY'S SMP Niger, HONGKONG, 5th February, 1859. SIR. In compliance with your Excellency's instructions, I left this harbour at 2 P M. on Monday last the 31st ultimo, with the Steam Gu vesse! Nimrod, and Gun-boat Plover,-taking the latter in tow in the Lyemoon Pass, and proceeded to Cupchi, where I arrived at 4 P.M. Tuesday.

2. I found the remains of the Five Brothers in the spot indicated by the Master of that Ship, a very small portion of the fore part ‹{ the Vessel and her Funnel only shewing above water,-the hull having parted in two, and being almost broken up owing to the heavy swe setting through the narrow pass.

3. I immediately diretted Commander Mends to search the vicinity with an armed party, in case any of the plunder from the wreck should be in the neighbourhood; but everything taken from it had been removed into the interior, while his proceedings were watched from the heights above by a great number of Chinese, who kept aloof, and it was impossible to communicate with them before dark.

4. The following morning, after an unsuccessful attempt to get the Plover over the Bar, I proceeded up to the town of Cupchi with the armed Boats, and demanded an interview with the Authorities. A Military Mandarin was immediately sent to me, and on stating the objec of my visit, he replied that the Authorities had already been made acquainted with the outrage committed upon the Passengers and Crew the Five Brothers, and bad sent a report to the Prefect of Lok-fun ;-that measures were being taken to discover the perpetrators of it, bu: that some of the Villages were wholly beyond the control of the Mandarins, and requested I would punish them in any way I thought proper, as a warning to deter others from committing a similar offence, the South western suburb of Cupchi itself being especially requiring to be made an example of, being the resort of men half fishermen and half pirates.

inted out as

5. Accordingly, on Thursday I landed all the Small-arm Men and Marines, with a 12-pounder Rocket Battery, marched to the Villages nearest the scene of the wreck, and demanded an indemnity from the Elders for the loss of life and property that had taken place, threatening them with the destruction of their Villages if my demand was not complied with. A similar demand was next made on the Elders of the S W suburb of Cupchi, but as no notice was taken of my message, I directed a few Rockets to be thrown into the place, and the Fishing Boats off it to be set on fire. Some resistance was offered, but these measures had the desired effect, and they came off to sue for mercy,

6. The result was that, after due deliberation, I accepted the sum of 2,500 Dollars from the Elders of the Suburb and Villages, which I considered sufficient indemnity under the circumstances of the case, the Master of the Five Brothers statement having been, from reliable and corroborative evidence, much exaggerated; and considering also that the suburb of Cupchi, and one of the Villages, which opened a fire on our force with Matchlocks, had suffered severely from the Rockets, which were directed with great precision by Lieutenant Blake, First of this Ship.

7. During these operations, Mr Veitch, the Master of the Niger, made a survey of the pass where the wreck took place, a copy of which is enclosed. It is impossible to look at it, without being satisfied that to attempt the passage was in the highest degree imprudent.

S. I cannot conclude without expressing my thanks to Commander Mends and Lieutenant Rason, for the manner in which they carried out my orders. We had no casualties, but I fear that the Chinese had several; and as this expedition was carried out on their New Year's day, a strong impression will have doubtless been made upon a people so superstitious, which, if it tends to cause shipwrecked mariners to receive better treatment for the future in this locality, will not have been thrown away.

9. Mr Caldwell, whose services have been invaluable, having completed his arrangements with the Elders for the payment of the indemnity, I left Cupchi at 2.30 yesterday afternoon, and have the honour to report my arrival here, with H. M. S. Nimrod and Plover, at 11 o'clock A.M. this day.I have the honour to be, &c., &c.,

His Excellency Rear Admiral SIR MICHAEL SEYMOUR, K.C.B.,

Commander-in-Chief.

P. CRACROFT,

Captain.

HER MAJESTY'S SHIP "Niger," OFF CUPCHI, 3d February, 1859. SIR,-In compliance with your orders, I have examined the position of the Merchant Steamer "Five Brothers," and find that she is on a rock 60 Fathoms South of Cupchi Point; the least water on the rock 2 Fathoms. It is not marked in the Admiralty Plan, but the surrounding waters are strewed with rocks.

The Vessel is a complete wreck, a part of the bow and the funnel being above water.

I beg to enclose a Copy of the Admiralty Plan of Cupchi Point, with the position of the wreck marked, and the soundings around her; also of the water on the Bar at the entrance of the River.--I have the honour to be, Sir, &c., &c.,

Hydrographic Notice.

[No. 5.]

INDIAN OCEAN.

EASTERN ARCHIPELAGO.

All bearings are Magnetic.

SUNDA STRAIT.

W. T. MERCER,

Colonial Secretary,

CAUTION.-Welcome Bay, lying immediately to the eastward of Second point, on the southern shore of Sunda Strait, appears to be full dangers not surveyed, and should be entered with extreme caution. A Shoal, with 12 feet on it, and 6 fathoms close to, extends between

Second point and Tambing point to the distance of half a mile off shore.*

COVENTRY SHOAL.t-This shoal was discovered by the ship Caroline Coventry, when steering to the Eastward of West Island for the Northern entrance of Sunda Strait. It is described as being partly above water, and the Breakers on it to be a quarter of a mile in extent. Its position is in about lat. 5° 30′ S., long. 106° 25′ E., and it was in line with West Island when bearing N.N.E. 1 E.‡

GASPAR STRAIT.

ALWINA ROCK §-The ship Alwina passed close to a rock lying N.N.W. 14 miles from the North-westernmost of the eleven islands, off the N.W. Hook of Billiton Island. It appeared to be a detached danger, with a depth of 6 to 9 feet on it, and to have deep water all around. Its position is in about lat, 2° 27′ S., long. 107° 42′ E.||

MOLUCCA PASSAGE.

BAHIA REEF.-The ship Bahia, when proceeding to the southward through the Molucca passage, struck, and dragged heavily over a Coral Reef lying in about lat. 1° 10′ S., long. 126° 50′ E.

AUSTRALIA, NORTH-EAST COAST.

THE KENN REEF-On which the English ship Rodney, and Dutch barque Olivier Van Noord, were wrecked, 7th June, 1858, when kund from Melbourne to India through Torres Strait, was discovered in 1824, and stated to consist of rocks and sand banks, partly above wer, extending S E. and N.W. about 9 miles, and apparently 6 or 7 miles across, with the middle of its eastern edge in lat. 21° 9′ S.

155° 49′ E.¶

From the report of these vessels, the position of this reef (supposing it to be Kenn Reef, which does not seem clear,) appears to be about ven on the Admiralty chart, but its extent 20 miles in a S.W. and N.E. direction. Mariners, therefore, are warned to be very careful when approaching this neighbourhood, until it has been correctly examined; more particularly as Mr M'Kenzie, who passed close to the posel position of Kenn Reef in the Gambia in 1851, states that it could not be seen, although the vessel's course was shaped for it after observations. Probably the safest route (if intending to pass to the Eastward of Kenn Reef,) would be to keep on the Meridian of 157° E. until well to the Northward of its parallel.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The following Notification addressed by RUTHERFORD ALCOCK, Esquire, Her Majesty's Consul at Canton, to the British Mercantile Community at that Port, respecting various matters in connection with the Chinese Custom House, is herewith published for general information.

By Order,

Superintendency of Trade, Victoria, Hongkong, 18th February, 1859.

NOTIFICATION.

G. W. CAINE.

BRITISHI CONSULATE, Canton, February 15th, 1859.

Ilis Excellency the Hoppo has requested the undersigned, 1Ier Majesty's Consul, to call the attention of the British Mercantile Community at this Port to the necessity for greater care on the part of those who transmit Foreign Goods from any other Consular Port to Canton, with an exemption Chop. Unless the Chop supply full particulars as to the Quality, Quantity, Number of Pieces, &c., so as to give the Custom House Officials here satisfactory means of identifying the Packages or Goods as those upon which Duties have actually been paid, and also specify the Sum paid, the Importers cannot be allowed the exemption sought. of such details, it would be well if Mercantile correspondents at the other Ports, were duly warned of the necessity for greater care as to the And as much inconvenience frequently arises from the absence insertion of such full particulars in every exemption Chop.

Various questions have also been the subject of discussion recently connected with a carrying trade in Chinese produce; more especially Cotton, Peas, and Beans, and the transhipment of Teas at Whampoa, from Macao or other outlying Ports, and for which exemption from duty has been erroneously claimed by the Shippers.

The undersigned is further requested, therefore, by His Excellency the Hoppo, to advise the British Mercantile Community, that no Chinese produce, brought here from any other Port or Place for consumption or sale, can by Treaty be held exempt from an Import Duty, either on the plea that it has already paid an Export Duty at the place of shipment, or that it is of a class of produce exempted by the Treaty Import Tariff,”-only applicable to Foreign Goods or produce. In the case of Teas, brought from any other Port or Place for shipment at Canton or Whampoa, the Tariff Export Duty is justly leviable, unless it can be shown such Teas have already paid at some other Consular Port the legal Export Dues according to Tariff.

The Duty levied on Cotton, the produce of China, brought to the Port in Chinese Vessels, His Excellency the Hoppo states to be the same as that specified in the Treaty Tariff: namely, 4 Mace per Picul. There is no distinction made therefore to the disadvantage of Foreign Ships, since this is also the amount claimed when the same produce is brought in the latter. The duty on Peas, at the present rate of exchange, is about 56 Cash per Picul in Chinese Vessels, and the same rate only is claimed when brought in Foreign Vessels.
