4 9 11 21- June June June June Note (a.)-The Mails should leave Alexandria one day earlier than is here appointed, but, owing to the Outward Packet being despatched from Marseilles one day later than usual, the departure from Alexandria is necessarily postponed one day.

Note (b.)-This earlier departure, although a deviation from the contract, is permitted, to insure a junction being effected with the Packet from Calcutta at Point de Galle.

Note (c.)-On these occasions, owing to the prevalence of the south-western monsoon, the arrival of the Packets at Suez is likely to be retarded, and the delivery of the Mails at Marseilles and Southampton respectively affected in a corresponding degree.

The following Report of the BOARD OF EDUCATION for 1861, is published for general information.

W. H. ALEXANDER,

Acting Colonial Secretary

To His Excellency

SIR HERCULES G. R. ROBINSON,

Governor, &c., &c. of Hongkong.

We, the Board of Education, beg to submit to Your Excellency the following annual Report :-

Brief as the Report of the Board of Education has been in former years, that for the past year must be still more so. It has laboured under increased disadvantages in consequence of the resignation of the Rev. Mr. Irwin in the early part of the year, and of the departure of the Rev. Mr. Beach for Teen-tsien at a later period. There then remained only the Rev. Dr. Legge, to exercise an efficient inspection of the Schools.

      Dr. Legge has endeavoured to look after the boys' schools in the middle and upper Bazaars, which he undertook to d? in 1860, while there was no regular Inspector. He has also made repeated visits to the schools at West Point and in Webster's Bazaar, Bowrington, and Tang-lung-chow. Ife is able to report favourably of all these. The attendance has been good, and.

the Teachers have been attentive.

The more earnest of the Teachers, however, complain of the difficulty which they have in securing the regular and perma- ?nent attendance of the pupils. In their last Report the Board suggested that this evil might be combated by the institution of a judicious system of rewards for good attendance, good behaviour, and proficiency. It has been unable to take any steps, during the past year, in accordance with that recommendation, but would advise that it be not lost sight of, when the arrival of a Head-master for the Central School shall render it possible to have a regular system of visitation of all the schools. Board rejoices that a gentleman highly recommended for the situation of Head-master will soon arrive; and hopes that the school rooms in Gough Street will be ready for the reception of the three schools of the Middle Bazaar, the Upper Bazaar, and the Tai-ping-shan by the time for reopening them after the Chinese New Year.

The

A new and convenient school room was completed and opened, in the month of August, in the thriving village of Show- ke-wan.

On behalf of the Board,

     PINNACLE ROCK OFF THE SOUTHERN ENTRANCE OF RHIO STRAIT. The rock on which the Dutch Merchant "ship Hendrik Jan is supposed to have struck upon, is a dangerous pinnacle, nearly awash at low water, and steep, having 9 and 10 fathoms close to it all round. From it, the S.E. point of Talang bears N.W. three quarters of mile, and the apex of South- west hill, is just shut in by the south-western extremity of the island. The southern part of Talang is comparatively high, and rises to a peak 350 feet in height; Vessels should give this coast a berth of 2 miles, or by not bringing Pulo Terobi to bear southward of E. & N., until South-west hill over the west extremity of Siolon, comes well open of Pulo Talang.

     BANK NEAR PULO TAYA.-The Castor bank, forming a long ridge of coral and sand, nearly one mile in breadth, extends (from 4 miles east of Pulo, Taya) 13 miles in a N.N.E. direction. The shoalest part of this bank (5 fathoms) is about a mile In extent, with its eastern side steep, and bears N.E. § N. 10 miles from Pulo Taya.

W. H. ALEXANDER,

Acting Colonial Secretary

To His Excellency

SIR HERCULES G. R. ROBINSON,

Governor, &c., &c. of Hongkong.

We, the Board of Education, beg to submit to Your Excellency the following annual Report :-

Brief as the Report of the Board of Education has been in former years, that for the past year must be still more so. It has laboured under increased disadvantages in consequence of the resignation of the Rev. Mr. Irwin in the early part of the year, and of the departure of the Rev. Mr. Beach for Teen-tsien at a later period. There then remained only the Rev. Dr. Legge, to exercise an efficient inspection of the Schools.

      Dr. Legge has endeavoured to look after the boys' schools in the middle and upper Bazaars, which he undertook to d? in 1860, while there was no regular Inspector. He has also made repeated visits to the schools at West Point and in Webster's Bazaar, Bowrington, and Tang-lung-chow. Ife is able to report favourably of all these. The attendance has been good, and.

the Teachers have been attentive.

The more earnest of the Teachers, however, complain of the difficulty which they have in securing the regular and perma- ?nent attendance of the pupils. In their last Report the Board suggested that this evil might be combated by the institution of a judicious system of rewards for good attendance, good behaviour, and proficiency. It has been unable to take any steps, during the past year, in accordance with that recommendation, but would advise that it be not lost sight of, when the arrival of a Head-master for the Central School shall render it possible to have a regular system of visitation of all the schools. Board rejoices that a gentleman highly recommended for the situation of Head-master will soon arrive; and hopes that the school rooms in Gough Street will be ready for the reception of the three schools of the Middle Bazaar, the Upper Bazaar, and the Tai-ping-shan by the time for reopening them after the Chinese New Year.

The

A new and convenient school room was completed and opened, in the month of August, in the thriving village of Show- ke-wan.

On behalf of the Board,

G. VICTORIA, Chairman.

      The following Hydrographic Notices by WILLIAM STANTON, Esq., R.N., are published for general information, in anticipation of more detailed directions :-

     PINNACLE ROCK OFF THE SOUTHERN ENTRANCE OF RHIO STRAIT. The rock on which the Dutch Merchant "ship Hendrik Jan is supposed to have struck upon, is a dangerous pinnacle, nearly awash at low water, and steep, having 9 and 10 fathoms close to it all round. From it, the S.E. point of Talang bears N.W. three quarters of mile, and the apex of South- west hill, is just shut in by the south-western extremity of the island. The southern part of Talang is comparatively high, and rises to a peak 350 feet in height; Vessels should give this coast a berth of 2 miles, or by not bringing Pulo Terobi to bear southward of E. & N., until South-west hill over the west extremity of Siolon, comes well open of Pulo Talang.

     BANK NEAR PULO TAYA.-The Castor bank, forming a long ridge of coral and sand, nearly one mile in breadth, extends (from 4 miles east of Pulo, Taya) 13 miles in a N.N.E. direction. The shoalest part of this bank (5 fathoms) is about a mile In extent, with its eastern side steep, and bears N.E. § N. 10 miles from Pulo Taya.

     SHOAL PATCHES NEAR TIMBAGA ROCKS.-Inside the depth of water ships were cautioned not to approach within, when passing Timbaga rocks are several sheal patches of coral, and sand, about a cable's lenth apart, and steep having a depth of 8 At the middle patch (2 fathoms), Timbaga rocks appear nearly in line with a sharp peak (330 feet high), fathoms close to. south of Bukit Limaun; Apex of distant long hill (657 feet high) just open west of White rocks, off Tanjong Bedaamon, and bearing N. by E. 3 E. These shoals, and Timbaga rocks, may be avoided, by not bringing Tamjong Lalarie (Langgon Point) to bear southward of S.E. S., until Branie peak bears E. by N. N.

    The patches are very steep, and not more than a boat's length in extent; to show their position, we left a black buoy on the outer patch in 4 fathoms, and nearly two cables west of the shoalest water.

     TIMBAGA OR COPPER ROCKS.-The highest one is four feet above high water, and with a setting sun, their reddish colour from the contrast offered to the green verdure of the land, makes them readily identified. To make them more con- spicuous at high water, and with a rising sun when they are not so clearly seen, I have had a white conical beacon surmount- ed with a ball erected on the highest part, and the whole height being 24 feet, will make it visible from a ship's deck in clear weather, 6 or 7 miles.

CAUTION TO MARINERS.

    The buoys that formely marked the position of Lucipara, Frederick Hendrick shoals, and beacon on Karang Hadjie, in Banka Strait, are all missing. The Dutch Authorities have acquainted me of their intention to re-place these buoys, but owing to the numerous floating trees, and strong tides in Banka Strait, no dependence can be placed in the buoys remaining long in their proper position.

     SPIT FROM MUD BANK NEAR TANJONG BON.-At S.E. S. 10 miles from Tanjong Bon, there is a spit of 3 fathoms, projecting East 3 miles from the ordinary depth; vessels should give this coast a berth of 5 miles, until Tanjong Bon bears

West.

SOUTH ENTRANCE TO DURIAN STRAIT.-At nearly one mile south from Rocky islet, forming the eastern extremity of Near the centre of this bank, False Durian island, we found a bank of sand and shells carrying a depth of 3 fathoms over it. the high peak of Great Durian shows just open east of Rocky islet, and False Durian peak N.W. W. Vessels from the Southward, after passing South Brother island, should give the South side of False Durian island, a berth of 4 miles, as other shoals extend nearly this distance on that bearing.

All these dangers may be avoided by keeping South Passage island, or west end of Little Durian open west of Rocky islet, or by not bringing the latter to bear westward of N.N.W., until nearly abreast.

     PRINCES ISLAND.-On the eastern side there is a coral ledge extending about 3 cables beyond the trees, and E.S.E. of the southern extremity of the island.

      ADVANTAGES GAINED BY ADOPTING THE ROUTE THROUGH VARELLA AND DURIAN STRAITS DURING THE NORTH MONSOON.From the Southward bound to Singapore, I would strongly recommend adopting the route through Varella and Durian Straits, where good anchorage, regular tides, and the chance of favourable land are found, whereas by going east of Linga, and through Rhio Straits, a heavy sea, head winds, and current governed by the winds will be experienced.

All bearings are Magnetic, and Distances given in nautical miles.

PROCLAMATION.

By His Excellency Sir HERCULES GEORGE ROBERT ROBINSON, Knight, Governor and Commander- in-Chief of the Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies, and Vice-Admiral of the same.

Whereas His Grace The DUKE OF NEWCASTLE, Her Majesty's Secretary of State for the Colonies, has communicated to the Government of this Colony Her Majesty's pleasure on various matters connected with the Hostilities which are now carried on between the States of North America which have seceded from the Union and those which adhere to it, in a Circular Despatch of which the following is a copy:-

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET, February 1st, 1862.

SIR,I enclose, for your guidance, the copy of a Letter which I have received from Lord Russell, from which you will learn Her Majesty's pleasure on various matters connected with the Hostilities which are now carried on between the States of North America which have seceded from the Union and those which adhere to it.

You will not fail to conform exactly to Her Majesty's commands.

I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient, humble Servant,

The Officer administering the Government of IIongkong.

NEWCASTLE.

MY LORD DUKE,

FOREIGN OFFICE, January 31, 1862.

     Her Majesty being fully determined to observe the duties of neutrality during the existing hostilities between the United States and the States calling themselves the Confederate States of America, and being, moreover, resolved to prevent, as far as possible, the use of Her Majesty's harbours, ports, and coasts, and the waters within Her Majesty's territorial jurisdiction, in aid of the warlike purposes of either belligerent, has commanded me to communicate to your Grace, for your guidance, the following rules, which are to be treated and enforced as Her Majesty's orders and directions.

Her Majesty is pleased further to command that these rules shall be put in force in the United Kingdom, and in the Channel Islands, on and after Thursday the 6th day of February next, and in Her Majesty's territories and posessions beyond the seas six days after the day when the Governor or other chief authority of each of such territories or possessions respectively shall have notified and published the same, stating in such notification that the said rules are to be beyed by all persons within the same territories and possessions.

     1. During the continuance of the present hostilities between the Government of the United States of North America and the States calling themselves the Confederate States of America, or until Her Majesty shall otherwise order, no ships of war or privateers belonging to either of the belligerents shall be permitted to enter or remain in the port of Nassau, or in any other port, roadstead, or waters of the Bahama Islands, except by special leave of the Lieutenant-Governor of the Bahama Islands, or in case of stress of weather. If any such vessel should enter any such port, roadstead, or waters, by special leave, or under stress of weather, the authorities of the place shall require her to put to sea as soon as possible, without permitting her to take in any supplies beyond what may be necessary for her immediate use.

     If at the time when this order is first notified in the Bahama Islands, there shall be any such vessel already within any port, roadstead, or waters of those islands, the Lieutenant-Governor shall give notice to such vessel to depart, and shall require her to put to sea within such time as he shall, under the circumstances, consider proper and reasonable. If there shall then be ships of war or privateers belonging to both the said belligerents within the territorial jurisdiction of Her Majesty, in or near the said port, roadstead or waters, the Lieutenant-Governor shall fix the order of time in which such vessels shall depart. No such vessel of either belligerent shall be permitted to put to sea until after the expiration of at least twenty-four hours from the time when the last preceding vessel of the other belligerent (whether the same shall be a ship of war, or privateer, or merchant- ship) which shall have left the same port, roadstead, or waters adjacent thereto, shall have passed beyond the territorial juris- diction of Her Majesty.

2. During the continuance of the present hostilities between the Government of the United States of North America and the States calling themselves the Conferate States of America, all ships of war and privateers of either belligerent are prohibited from making use of any port or roadstead in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, or in the Channel Islands, or in any of Her Majesty's Colonies, or Foreign Possessions, or Dependencies, or of any waters subject to the territorial jurisdiction of the British Crown, as a station or place of resort for any warlike purpose, or for the purpose of obtaining any facilities of warlike equipment; and no ship of war or privateer of either belligerent shall hereafter be permitted to sail out of or leave any port, roadstead, or waters subject to British jurisdiction, from which any vessel of the other belligerent (whether

     Her Majesty being fully determined to observe the duties of neutrality during the existing hostilities between the United States and the States calling themselves the Confederate States of America, and being, moreover, resolved to prevent, as far as possible, the use of Her Majesty's harbours, ports, and coasts, and the waters within Her Majesty's territorial jurisdiction, in aid of the warlike purposes of either belligerent, has commanded me to communicate to your Grace, for your guidance, the following rules, which are to be treated and enforced as Her Majesty's orders and directions.

     1. During the continuance of the present hostilities between the Government of the United States of North America and the States calling themselves the Confederate States of America, or until Her Majesty shall otherwise order, no ships of war or privateers belonging to either of the belligerents shall be permitted to enter or remain in the port of Nassau, or in any other port, roadstead, or waters of the Bahama Islands, except by special leave of the Lieutenant-Governor of the Bahama Islands, or in case of stress of weather.

     If at the time when this order is first notified in the Bahama Islands, there shall be any such vessel already within any port, roadstead, or waters of those islands, the Lieutenant-Governor shall give notice to such vessel to depart, and shall require her to put to sea within such time as he shall, under the circumstances, consider proper and reasonable. If there shall then be ships of war or privateers belonging to both the said belligerents within the territorial jurisdiction of Her Majesty, in or near the said port, roadstead or waters, the Lieutenant-Governor shall fix the order of time in which such vessels shall depart. No such vessel of either belligerent shall be permitted to put to sea until after the expiration of at least twenty-four hours from the time when the last preceding vessel of the other belligerent (whether the same shall be a ship of war, or privateer, or merchant- ship) which shall have left the same port, roadstead, or waters adjacent thereto, shall have passed beyond the territorial juris- diction of Her Majesty.

2. During the continuance of the present hostilities between the Government of the United States of North America and the States calling themselves the Conferate States of America, all ships of war and privateers of either belligerent are prohibited from making use of any port or roadstead in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, or in the Channel Islands, or in any of Her Majesty's Colonies, or Foreign Possessions, or Dependencies, or of any waters subject to the territorial jurisdiction of the British Crown, as a station or place of resort for any warlike purpose, or for the purpose of obtaining any facilities of warlike equipment; and no ship of war or privateer of either belligerent shall hereafter be permitted to sail out of or leave any port, roadstead, or waters subject to British jurisdiction, from which any vessel of the other belligerent (whether

the same shall be a ship of war, a privateer, or a merchant-ship) shall have previously departed, until after the expiration of at least twenty-four hours from the departure of such last-mentioned vessel beyond the territorial jurisdiction of Her Majesty. If any ship of war or privateer of either belligerent shall, after the time wher this order shall be first notified and put in force in the United Kingdom and in the Channel Islands, and in the several Colonies, and Foreign Possessions, and Deper- dencies of Her Majesty respectively, enter any port, roadstead, or waters belonging to Her Majesty, either in the United King dom or in the Channel Islands, or in any of Her Majesty's Colonies, or Foreign Possessions, or Dependencies, such vessel shall be required to depart and to put to sea within twenty-four hours after her entrance into such port, roadstead, or waters, except in case of stress of weather, or of her requiring provisions or things necessary for the subsistence of her crew, or repairs, in either of which cases the authorities of the port, or of the nearest port, (as the case inay be), shall require her to put to sea as soon as possible after the expiration of such period of twenty-four hours, without permitting her to take in supplies beyond what may be necessary for her immediate use; and no such vessel which may have been allowed to remain within British waters for the purpose of repair, shall continue in any such port, roadstead, or waters, for a longer period than twenty-four hours after her necessary repairs shall have been completed: Provided, nevertheless, that in all cases in which there shall be any vessels (whether ships of war, privateers, or merchant-ships) of both the said belligerent parties in the same port, roadstead, or waters within the territorial jurisdiction of Her Majesty, there shall be an interval of not less than twenty-four hours between the departure therefrom of any such vessel (whether a ship of war, a privateer, or a merchant-ship) of the one belli- gerent, and the subsequent departure therefrom of any ship of war or privateer of the other belligerent; and the times hereby limited for the departure of such ships of war and privateers respectively shall always, in case of necessity, be extended so far as may be requisite for giving effect to this proviso, but not further or otherwise.

4. No ship of war or privateer of either belligerent shall hereafter be permitted, while in any port, roadstead, or waters subject to the territorial jurisdiction of Her Majesty, to take in any supplies except provisions and such other things as may be requisite for the subsistence of her crew; and except so much coal only as may be sufficient to carry such vessel to the nearest port of her own country, or to some nearer destination; and no coal shall be again supplied to any such ship of war or privateer. in the same or any other port, roadstead, or waters subject to the territorial jurisdiction of Her Majesty, without special per mission, until after the expiration of three months from the time when such coal may have been last supplied to her within British waters as aforesaid.-I have, &c.

No. 36.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19?? APRIL, 1862.

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, Hongkong, 17th April, 1862.

W. H. ALEXANDER, Acting Colonial Secretary.

A reference to the Meteorological Table, which accompanies this paper, will shew that my third Report on the Sanitary Condition of Hongkong, must relate to a year so exceptional as regards the absence of violent extremes of temperature as to justify the expectation that the inhabitants of this crowded Colony have experienced even a greater share of health than in the two immediately preceding years, which were themselves so remarkable for their salubrity; and this expectation will be found in some measure justified by the Tables which I shall be able to append.

The Colony has passed through another year without being visited by Cholera or any very violent epidemic of Fever. Small Pox has however been much more prevalent than usual, both in the Spring of 1861, and again at the end of the year; and I am sorry to report much more fatal in its character.

     The mortality from Dysentery, Diarrhea and Intermittent Fever will be seen to have maintained an average very nearly the same as in the previous year.

I.-The Police.

     This body contini es remarkable for its great healthiness; much of this fortunate result is doubtless owing to the care with which the officers attend to the men, and also in no small degree to the wise provision afforded by the Government for their care in sickness.

Table I. shews the admissions and deaths in the Hospital of Members of the Police Force during every month of 1861. Table II. shews the rate per cent of sickness and mortality of the Force during the same year.

It will be noted that the mortality is absolutely greater but relatively less than in former years.

II.—The Government Civil Hospital.

     Tables III. and IV. give the classification and result of treatment of the various patients admitted into this Hospital, with the per centage of mortality.

     Table V., kindly furnished to me by the Resident Surgeon, Mr. Enscoe, gives similar information in regard to the Seaman's Hospital.

III. The Gaol.

Table VI., which shows the rate of sickness and mortality in the establishment during the past year, is the least satis- factory table I have framed up to this time. It will be seen that the rate of mortality has been 4.03 per cent to the average number of prisoners, in comparison to a rate of only 1.67 in 1859. It must not be forgotten, however, that that average has increased to 146 against an average of only 239 in 1859, and that crowding has been a necessary consequence, which the completion of the new works will to some extent remove.

IV.-The Lock Hospital.

      Table VII. affords a complete answer to those who think, that the Ordinance under which this institution was establish- ed, has effected no good. It will be seen that during the four years it has been in force 1,089 infected women have been segregated from the localities in which they could convey infection, and that during a total of 30,072 days; or in other. words supposing that every infected woman could only convey the disease to one man during each day she was diseased, we have at least 30,072 cases of disease prevented, or at all events 30,072 opportunities of conveying disease have been pre- vented. The table shews further that the average number of days in which these diseased women have been under treat- ment has steadily decreased until it has almost reached the minimum we can look for. This proves the disease to be milder in type and to have been arrested in its earlier stages.

Table VIII. gives the usual information as to the work done by the Inspector of Nuisances attached to this Department Table IX. shews the annual mean state of the Atmosphere during the year 1861, as recorded at the Government Civil Hospital.
