GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION. ·

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

At the request of Her Majesty's Consul in Canton the following Circular, addressed to the British Mercantile Community at that Port, is published for the information of the Inhabitants of this Colony.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Victoria, Hongkong, 4th January, 1860.

CIRCULAR.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

BRITISH CONSULATE, Canton, 29th December, 1859.

The undersigned having brought to the notice of the Honourable F. W. A. Bruce, C.B., IIer Majesty's Envoy Extra- ordinary and Superintendent of British Trade in China, the circumstances connected with a claim recently made for duties on certain produce alleged to be Chinese, and shipped in Hongkong and Macao for London in a British vessel, which arrived at Whampoa with the intention of completing her lading, but, in consequence of such claim having been made, departed without doing so, has received the following instructions, dated Shanghae, 21st December, 1859.

With respect to ships taking in part of their cargo at Hongkong and coming to Whampoa to fill up, I am equally "convinced that your position is a sound one, and that the pretensions of the Hoppo to impose duties on the cargo, whether consisting of teas or other produce of China cannot be maintained. These goods, being shipped from a British Colony, are "to be treated as having a British origin, and do not become dutyable again, by the mere act of coming within the waters of "China."

The undersigned has therefore formally intimated to the Hoppo that the claim to levy duties here on any cargo shipped either in Hongkong or Macao, and brought to Whampoa or Canton with the intention of being re-exported in the same vessel is contrary to international law, and will be resisted.

In order to enable the undersigned to support the right of individual goods to this exemption, it will be necessary in each case for the consignee or shipper, or other authorized agent, to produce good and sufficient evidence of such goods having been bona file shipped in a recognised foreign Port not under the sovereignty of the Emperor of China, and it will be equally competent to the foppo and his authorized officers to examine such goods and see that they correspond to the certified descriptions. It is also right that the undersigned should state that the rule of international law will not cover Chinese Produce shipped illegally in foreign vessels in Ports of China, and merely touching at either of these Ports; as before observed, tangible evidence of the shipment in a foreign Port, as substantially proving that the goods have been bond file within the range of commercial operations conducted under foreign jurisdiction will be required. Any attempt to introduce under this rule goods not shipped in a foreign Port, or at subsequent fraudulent substitution, will as a matter of course bring them under the operation of Treaty Rules or Regulations, penal or otherwise, as the circumstances of each case shall determine.

Among the most obvious sufficient legal evidence of shipment in a foreign Port may be particularized— 1st. A Regular Port Clearance from such Port to Canton or Whampoa.

2d. A manifest distinctly specifying the place of shipment, and describing the numbers, marks, and contents of the packages, legally declared and attested under the seal of the proper officer of the foreign Port; and, if the shipment shall have taken place in a Port not British, such manifest in respect of British ships might also be further attested and declared before the resident British Consular Authority.

3d. The Captain's copies of the Bills of Lading, with all of which documents, or others of a similar conclusive nature, British shipmasters will do well to provide themselves, as the Customs Officers will have the right to call for and examine the evidence, and compare it with the goods as found in the vessel.

It is also desirable that the undersigned should state that the rule of international law in question will not authorize the undersigned to urge on the Chinese Authorities the regarding such cargo with favor; it only protects the cargo shipped in a foreign harbor while it remains on board the same British vessel which brought it into the Chinese Port. If it is sought to land it, the Hoppo will be strictly in his right to treat it as foreign Import cargo, and charge on it the duty levyable by Tariff; and any attempt to tranship it without permission, will at once expose it to confiscation.

THE BRITISH COMMUNITY,

Canton.

VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL

OF HONGKONG.

No. 11 OF 1859.

MONDAY, 26TH DECEMBER, 1859.

PRESENT:

IIIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR and all the Members, except MR: JARDINE, absent on account of press

of business.

The Council met to-day, pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the last Council were read and approved.

MR. LYALL, one of the Members of the Select Committee appointed to consider the Civil List Bill for

Hongkong, brought up their Report, which was read.

The Report was as follows:---

"COUNCIL CHAMBER, Monday, 26th December, 1859.

"We, the Members of a Committee of the Legislative Council, appointed on 21st November last, 'to consider the proposed 'Ordinance to grant a Civil List to Her Majesty for the Colony of Hongkong and to report thereon to the Council, having fully considered the same, do now report:-

"That at our first meeting, when taking the whole bearing of the Ordinance into consideration and viewing it as a means of fixing definitely the Salaries of the several Chief Officers of Government for a lengthened period, it became apparent to us that at the present time, when everything in regard to expenditure in this Colony is in a most unsettled state, it is impossible to fix such a scale of salaries as would for years to come be both a proper remuneration to the several Officers, and just to the Government itself.

"

That, should His Excellency the Governor see fit to postpone the further consideration of the proposed Ordinance grant- ing a Civil List until the end of next year, we are of opinion that the Council will then probably be in a much better position to arrive at a correct view of this matter.

"That it appears to us beyond question that the Salaries of most of the Chief Officers of Government, from His Excellency the Governor downwards, should be increased; but, for the reasons before given, we are not at present prepared to state the

amount of increase.

“That it has been shewn to us by some of the Officers of Government, that the Salaries which they at present receive are wholly inadequate for their proper maintenance in the position which they ought to hold, and that we consider the case so urgent in respect to them, that we would recommend their Salaries to be at once increased.

"That the Officers to whom we allude are :—

The Registrar of the Supreme Court, whose salary we would recommend should be increased to £800 per annum. The Deputy Registrar of the Supreme Court, whose salary we would recommend should be increased to £450 per

annum.

The Accountant in the Surveyor General's Office and Clerk of Deed Registry, whose salary we would recommend

should be increased to £500 per annum.

"And finally, that it appears to us that the Salary of £150 per annum at present paid to the Crown Solicitor is quite in- adequate for the duties performed by him, and we would recommend that it be at once increased to £300 per annum.'

"J. JARDINE.” "JOHN DENT.” "GEO. LYALL.”

The Bill, entitled "An Ordinance to authorize the appropriation of a Supplementary Sum not ex- ceeding Four Thousand Pounds to defray the charges of the year 1859," was read a second time;

And the Council went into Committee upon the Supplementary Estimates for the said Year. The following Votes were then agreed to:--

Attendu que les habitants de la Malaisie et d'une partie des côtes de la Chine, des iles de la Réunion et Maurice sont hautement interressés à voir s'ouvrir une voie qui leur permette de tirer, des provinces du Sud de la Cochinchine, les riz dont ils out besoin

DÉCIDÉ: ARTICLE I.

La rivière de Saigon, depuis le cap St. Jacques jusqu'à la ville de Saigon, est ouverte, sous la protection de l'autorité française, aux navires de commerce de toutes les nations en paix avec la France, en se soumettant aux réglements de port qui leur seront signifiés par le bâtiment stationnaire à l'entrée de la rivière.

Le blocus de tout autre point de la côte de Cochinchine, tel qu'il a été établi par la déclaration de l'amiral commandant en chef à la date de Septembre 1858, est rigoureusement maintenu.

ARTICLE III.

Toute introduction ou tentative d'introduction d'armes et de munitions de guerre sur un point quelconque de la Côte, entrainera la saisie et la confiscation du navire qui se livrerait à ce commerce prohibé.

Colonial Secretary,

COUNCIL ROOM, 12th March, 1860.

SIR,--We have the honor to intimate, in accordance with the request conveyed in your letter No. 163 of the 2nd Instant, that we have considered the comparative merits of the several Schemes for providing the City of Victoria with Water, submit- ted by Messrs. Bird, Walker, and Rawling, and that we are of opinion that that forwarded by Mr. Rawling is the best and most practicable, and entitles him to the premium of $1,000 offered in the Government Notification No. 98 of 14th October, 1859, published in the Gazette.

We have also attentively considered the Report sent in (but not intended for competition) by Mr. Murrow; there is merit in its suggestions, but it scarcely meets the requirement of the Government Notification for a constant and sufficient supply of Water to this City, as it is of a temporary character, and the proposed conduit is not adapted for the conveyance of so large a volume of water as is requisite to meet the wants of the population.

With respect to the feasibility of carrying out the several competitive Schemes laid before us within their estimated cost, much will depend on the correctness of the assumed prices of the Iron piping, and should the plan which we consider the best be adopted by Government, various modifications in its execution have suggested themselves to us which, should His Excellency desire it, we shall be happy to submit to him hereafter.

We have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servants,

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The Colonial Surgeon's Report, with Returns on the sanitary condition of the Colony for the past year, is published for general information.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Victoria, Hongkong, 12th March, 1860.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 25th February, 1860. My first annual Report of the Sanitary condition of Hongkong refers to a year eminently healthy. Asiatic cholera, which proved a formidable scourge in 1858, has not revisited the Colony.

Small pox, which recurs each Spring and Autumn did not fail to make its appearance, and I understand that its ravages were considerable, especially among the native population.

In June and July an epidemic of ophthalmia first appeared in the Gaol and rapidly spread throughout the Colony, attacking both Europeans and Natives. It was of a very mild character and generally yielded to the simplest treatment in a few days. It was difficult to assign any local cause for its appearance. The unprecedented drought at the commence- ment of summer, and the great glare and dust, consisting of decomposed granite violently blown about by the high winds, I found however that the disease was equally prevalent at Canton, would naturally have suggested themselves as causes. Amoy, and Foo-chow-foo, and even more so at sea and among the ships in harbour, than on shore. I am therefore inclined to attribute this visitation to soine atmospheric influence.

In November the Colony was threatened by an epidemic of Diphtheria. Ten cases were seen, of which two proved fatal, and a third very narrowly escaped death. I understand that about the same time this disease made its appearance in Bombay, where at least one fatal case occurred in a school.

Diarrhea, Dysentery and Intermittent fever, which are to some extent inseparable from a tropical climate, occurred among us, but the cases were by no means so numerous or fatal as in 1858.

As it might be considered presumptuous in one, who has held office for so short a time as myself, to enter at any length upon Sanitary matters, I shall, as briefly as may be, append the usual Statistical Tables, making a very few remarks upon the various Institutions under my professional supervision.

The following Tables I, II, III, and IV will show in a remarkable manner the extreme healthiness of the Police Force of this Colony.

Tables V and VI will show the nature of the diseases, and the result of treatment, in the Government Civil Hospital. The new building at West Point, first opened in July, is a great advance on the former building, which is now used as the temporary Magistracy.

Table No. VII, kindly furnished to me by the Resident Surgeon, Mr. Preston, gives somewhat similar information in regard to the Seamen's Hospital.

Table No. VIII exhibits the state of health in the Gaol, which it will at once be seen was remarkably good during the past season. Only four deaths have occurred therein in the course of the year: one previons to my taking charge; the second in the case of a woman, a confirmed opium smoker, who sank under the combined effects of chronic Hepatitis and Dropsy; the third from congestion of the brain, the result of injury, the death occurring almost immediately after admission; the fourth, a beggar, from starvation. Not one of those deaths therefore resulted from disease contracted within the building; and none of the Europeans have suffered fatally. From the date of my taking charge (in April) there have been seldom more than two Europeans or a dozen Chinese in Hospital at one time. The Chinese thrive amazingly in confinement and, after a few months' incarceration, are sent out fat and healthy.

As in all Prisons, a continual change of prisoners is going on. During the year the numbers were :---

Europeans.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The subjoined Proclamation, issued at Kowloong by Order of His Excellency The Lieutenant- General Commanding-in-Chief Her Majesty's Land Forces in China, is published for general informa

tion.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Victoria, Hongkong, 24th March, 1860.

PUBLIC NOTICE.

W.T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

By LIEUTENANT-COLONEL MACMAHON, 44th Regiment, Commanding the British Detachment on the Kowloon Peninsula. In consequence of the injury resulting to British interests by Tseem-sha-tsung and its neighborhood having been allowed to become a resort for pirates and outlaws His Excellency the Governor General of the two Kwang has now effected an ar- rangement with the British Authorities by which all that part of the Kowloon peninsula lying South of a line drawn from a point near to but South of the Kowloon Fort to the Northern-most point of Stone-cutter's Island, together with that Island is leased to the British Government in order that it may be placed under their control.

The undersigned, having now occupied the said site with the detachment under his command by order of the Lieutenant General Commanding-in-Chief, with directions to prevent settlers coming there in future, while at the same time protection is to be extended to all orderly people already located there, hereby issues the following Notice for the information and guid- ance of all the inhabitants of the said locality.

Be it known to you that all the old inhabitants of this site, who are indeed orderly people, will be allowed to live there for the present and follow their various occupations as heretofore, but no new comers will be permitted to settle there, and stringent measures will be taken to prevent its becoming as heretofore a resort for thieves and outlaws, who are hereby warn- ed that they will be proceeded against with severity if they attempt to conceal themselves within the above-mentioned limits.

Dated at Kowloon, this Twenty-fourth Day of March, 1860.

P. W. MACMAHON,

Lut.-Col. 44th Regiment.

"The Board of Education" under the circumstances of their recent constitution and appointment content themselves with a brief summary of facts in relation to the government of the Schools in the Island of Hongkong for the past year.

During the year 1859 nineteen Schools were in operation in the City of Victoria and in the principal Villages of the

Island.

In these nineteen Schools twenty-one Chinese Schoolmasters and Assistants were employed, exclusive of three younger Chinese Teachers appointed to give instruction in the elements of English reading, and dividing their time between eight of the Schools in Victoria and its immediate vicinity.

The attendance of Scholars varies considerably at different parts of the year in those hamlets in which the people are chiefly engaged in fishing.

The greatest number of attendants at each School formed an aggregate of 873 boys and 64 girls, as calculated from the highest number in each month attending on any one particular occasion in each School. The average attendance of every day throughout the year was 713.

The total expenditure of the year (as per accompanying tabular Schedule) amounting to £1,260.13.6 in which sum are included the stipend of the Inspector of Schools-£300—and some smaller sums incurred in his travelling allowances and Chinese Writer, and some disbursements on account of English and Chinese School books.

The course of instruction pursued embraces the general course of a native Chinese education in the text books of their national literature, and works prepared by Foreigners, and the New Testament and religious works in Chinese, except in cases of individual objection from the parents of children.

Under the new system recently inaugurated the Board of Education reserves fuller particulars for their next Annual Report to the local Government.

The total expenditure of the year (as per accompanying tabular Schedule) amounting to £1,260.13.6 in which sum are included the stipend of the Inspector of Schools-£300—and some smaller sums incurred in his travelling allowances and Chinese Writer, and some disbursements on account of English and Chinese School books.

The course of instruction pursued embraces the general course of a native Chinese education in the text books of their national literature, and works prepared by Foreigners, and the New Testament and religious works in Chinese, except in cases of individual objection from the parents of children.

Under the new system recently inaugurated the Board of Education reserves fuller particulars for their next Annual Report to the local Government.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

VICTORIA, by the Grace of GoD of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland Queen, Defender of the Faith. TO ALL TO WHOM these presents shall come Greeting. WHEREAS by an Ordi- nance passed by the Legislative Council of Hongkong in the Year One thousand Eight hundred and Forty-five, intituled Number 6 of 1845 "An Ordinance to repeal Ordinance No. 15 of 1844 for the establishment of a Supreme Court of Judicature at Hongkong, and to substitute other provisions in lieu thereof," it was enacted that there should be within the said Colony a Court which should be called The Supreme Court of Hongkong. AND WHEREAS by an Order in Council, bearing date the Third Day of March One thousand Eight hundred and Fifty-nine, it was ordered that in the event of any Suit of a Civil Nature arising between British Subjects within the Dominions of the Tycoon of Japan it should be lawful upon the Application of any Party to such Suit for the Consul of the District within which the Party sued should be found to hear and determine such Suit subject to an Appeal to the Supreme Court of the Colony of Hongkong, and that every such Appeal should be made and conducted in the manner and form and under the same Conditions as were prescribed by the said Order in Council in case the Defendant only were a British Subject. AND WHEREAS by the 28th Article of the aforesaid Order in Council it was further ordered that the Supreme Court of the Colony of Hongkong should have and might exercise concurrently with Her Majesty's Consul Authority and Jurisdiction in regard to all Suits of a Civil Nature between British Subjects arising within any parts of the Dominions of the Emperor of Japan: Provided always that the said Supreme Court should not be bound unless in a fit rase it should deem it right so to do by Writ of Certiorari or otherwise to debar or prohibit the Consul from hearing and determining pursuant to the Provisions of the several Articles of the said Order any Suit of a Civil Nature between British Subjects or to stay the proceedings of the Consul in any such matter.--Now KNOW YE that WE upon consideration of the premises, and of OUR certain knowledge, nd mere motion have thought fit to direct and ordain, and do direct and ordain, as follows, that is to say: If any Party to any such Suit as aforesaid heard and determined in Japan shall be dissatisfied with the Decision given upon the said Suit by the Consul before whom the same shall be tried it shall be lawful for such Party within Fifteen Days after such Decision to give to the Consul notice of Appeal to the Supreme Court of Hongkong, whereupon the Consul shall, with as little delay as possible, stamp with his Consular Seal, and transmit all the Documents, which were produced before him, and none other, and also the Notes taken by him of the evidence in the said Shit, together with a Statement of the grounds on which he formed his Decision to the said Supreme Court, and an exact Copy of the Order made by him, and shall forthwith notify to the several Parties the transmission thereof.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 12TH MAY, 1860.

GOVERNMENT NOTICE.—No. 64, 1860.

COLONIAL OFFICE, Cape of GOOD HOPE,

16th February, 1860.

His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor has directed the publication of the following notice, describing the new CAPE OF GOOD HOPE LIGHT, which will be exhibited on the first day of May, 1860.

By Command of His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor, Administering the Government,

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE LIGHT. The bearings are true, and the distances nautical miles.

RAWSON W. RAWSON, Colonial Secretary.

An iron tower has been erected on the Cape of Good Hope,- The tower is 30 feet above the ground, and is painted white; the light is 816 feet above the sea, and is visible in all -a light from which will be exhibited on the first of May, 1860. directions from N. 34° W., round by the west, south, east, and north, to N. 7° W., save and except on a sector included between N. 54° W. and N. 61° W., where it is obscured by the intervention of a high peak, 880 feet above the sea, and 1,800 yards from the light tower.

The light is on the catoptric principle and of the first class; it is white-revolving--and shows its most brilliant beam once in a minute for the space of twelve seconds of time, and it is visible in clear weather from a deck 16 feet high at the distance of 36 miles.

Latitude of the light.. Longitude...

34° 21′ 12′′ S. 18° 29′ 30′′ E.

The light tower stands N. 49° W., 925 yards fro the Dias Rock, which is the southern extremity of the Cape Peninsula. The following bearings and distances are given from the light:-

Anvil Rocks..

Bellows...

S. W. Reef.

Whittle Rock.

S. 54° .S. 1° .S. 55°

E. 1.8 miles.

W. 2.1 W. 1-8

""

""

‚N. 27° 30′ E. 7·2

""

A current of varied strength sets round the Cape and turns to the N.W. from the Bellows Rock. This rock always breaks;

but not so the Anvil, which only breaks at low water and with a heavy swell. Sailing vessels should not pass between these dangers and the Cape, unless with a commanding breeze. The rocky patch, "S.W. Reef," lies south 42° W., one mile only from the S.W. corner of the Cape Peninsula, and there is foul rocky ground between it and the shore.

Ships from the eastward should not bring the light to bear more westerly than W. by N., by which they will clear all dangers off Cape Hanglip. A tongue of low land stretches from this Cape in a S. 23° W. direction for 12 miles, rendering caution necessary in passing Hanglip in hazy weather, especially if bound into Simon's Bay. If bound for Table Bay from the eastward, vessels, after rounding the Cape of Good Hope and passing Slangkop Point, should not shut in the light with that point until the Green Point light becomes visible (which will be on a N. 41° E. bearing). This course will carry them about two miles to the westward of the Vulcan Rock, which lies off the northern entrance to Hout Bay; a course for Table Bay may then be shaped with safety.

Vessels from the westward bound for Simon's Bay, after rounding the Cape of Good Hope and having brought the southern end of the lofty Zwartkop range (which stands over the northern side of Smith's Winkle Bay), to bear west-should keep the light on Cape Point between S. 2° W. and S. 23° W., until the Roman Rock light bears between N. 30° W. and N. 47° W., when they may haul towards it. These limits leave the rocks off Millar's Point on the one hand and the Whittle Rock on the other, half a mile distant. Should the weather be hazy and the whitewashed mark and beacon for the Whittle Rock indistinct—there is a dark peak over the southern side of Hout Bay which being brought on with Elsey Peak on a N. 42° W. bearing, will lead clear (but close) to the westward of the Whittle Rock.

Simon's Bay, February 2, 1860.

An iron tower has been erected on the Cape of Good Hope,- The tower is 30 feet above the ground, and is painted white; the light is 816 feet above the sea, and is visible in all -a light from which will be exhibited on the first of May, 1860. directions from N. 34° W., round by the west, south, east, and north, to N. 7° W., save and except on a sector included between N. 54° W. and N. 61° W., where it is obscured by the intervention of a high peak, 880 feet above the sea, and 1,800 yards from the light tower.

The light is on the catoptric principle and of the first class; it is white-revolving--and shows its most brilliant beam once in a minute for the space of twelve seconds of time, and it is visible in clear weather from a deck 16 feet high at the distance of 36 miles.

Latitude of the light.. Longitude...

34° 21′ 12′′ S. 18° 29′ 30′′ E.

The light tower stands N. 49° W., 925 yards fro the Dias Rock, which is the southern extremity of the Cape Peninsula. The following bearings and distances are given from the light:-

Anvil Rocks..

Bellows...

S. W. Reef.

Whittle Rock.

S. 54° .S. 1° .S. 55°

E. 1.8 miles.

W. 2.1 W. 1-8

""

""

‚N. 27° 30′ E. 7·2

""

A current of varied strength sets round the Cape and turns to the N.W. from the Bellows Rock. This rock always breaks;

but not so the Anvil, which only breaks at low water and with a heavy swell. Sailing vessels should not pass between these dangers and the Cape, unless with a commanding breeze. The rocky patch, "S.W. Reef," lies south 42° W., one mile only from the S.W. corner of the Cape Peninsula, and there is foul rocky ground between it and the shore.

Ships from the eastward should not bring the light to bear more westerly than W. by N., by which they will clear all dangers off Cape Hanglip. A tongue of low land stretches from this Cape in a S. 23° W. direction for 12 miles, rendering caution necessary in passing Hanglip in hazy weather, especially if bound into Simon's Bay. If bound for Table Bay from the eastward, vessels, after rounding the Cape of Good Hope and passing Slangkop Point, should not shut in the light with that point until the Green Point light becomes visible (which will be on a N. 41° E. bearing). This course will carry them about two miles to the westward of the Vulcan Rock, which lies off the northern entrance to Hout Bay; a course for Table Bay may then be shaped with safety.

Vessels from the westward bound for Simon's Bay, after rounding the Cape of Good Hope and having brought the southern end of the lofty Zwartkop range (which stands over the northern side of Smith's Winkle Bay), to bear west-should keep the light on Cape Point between S. 2° W. and S. 23° W., until the Roman Rock light bears between N. 30° W. and N. 47° W., when they may haul towards it. These limits leave the rocks off Millar's Point on the one hand and the Whittle Rock on the other, half a mile distant. Should the weather be hazy and the whitewashed mark and beacon for the Whittle Rock indistinct—there is a dark peak over the southern side of Hout Bay which being brought on with Elsey Peak on a N. 42° W. bearing, will lead clear (but close) to the westward of the Whittle Rock.

Simon's Bay, February 2, 1860.
