   Letters from Naval Officers addressed to the United Kingdom are entitled to be forwarded at the reduced charge of 6d the half ounce via Southampton and 10d. the half ounce vi? Marseilles only when the same are posted here in the Ship's letter bag, and when they are brought to this Office otherwise they are treated as ordinary letters from the Public and charged accordingly.

At the request of the Government of the Cape of Good Hope, the following Notice, announcing the establishment of a light on Robben Island, and certain alterations in the Lights on Green Point and Mouille Point; as also the erection of a new Beacon in False Bay, is published for general information. By Order,

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 16th January, 1865.

GOVERNMENT NOTICE.-No. 299, 1864.

                      Colonial Office, Cape of Good Hope, 19th September, 1864. His Excellency the Governor has directed the publication of the following Notice relative to certain projected alterations in the Lights in Table Bay, and the erection of a new Beacon in False Bay.

By command of His Excellency the Governor,

NOTICE

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

TABLE BAY NEW LIGHTS AND FALSE BAY BEACON.

Robben Island Light.

R. SOUTHEY. Colonial Secretary.

    A Light-house has been erected on the Southernmost (and highest) hill of Robben Island, Minto Hill, at an elevation of 154 feet above the sea, a light from which will be exhibited on the 1st of January, 1865.

The Light-house is in Latitude 33 48′ 52" S., Longitude 18° 22′ 33′′ E.

The building is a cylindrical shaft, 60 feet high, painted in horizontal Red and White bands, exhibiting a White fixed light of the 1st order, dioptric. It is visible all round the horizon, and can be seen from a ship in clear weather 19 or 20 miles. Changes in the Green and Mouille Point Lights.

The two fixed lights in the Green Point square tower will be abandoned on the above date, and a White light of the 3rd order dioptric, flashing at intervals of 10 seconds, substituted. It is 65 feet above the sea, and can be seen in clear weather from a ship 13 miles.

Mouille Light.

    The old pyramidal building which carried this light will be demolished, and replaced by a cylindrical shaft 30 feet high, painted in alternate Black and White bends, and carrying a Red light of the 4th order dioptric. It stands at an elevation of 44 feet above the sea, and can be seen about 10 miles in clear weather.

Sailing Directions.

Ships bound for Table Bay from the southward should not shut in the Cape Point light with the land at Slangkop Point until the Robben Island light--which will be seen before the one on Green Point-bears N.E. 3 E., when they may steer for it; and when the Green Point light bears east, an E.N.E. course may be followed until the red light on Mouille Point comes open to the northward of Green Point light, bearing S.E. by S. This course will lead clear of the Vulcan Rock and the reefs that lie to the northward of it. The course may now be altered to S. E. by E. & E., which will carry them one mile outside Mouille Point, and within this distance no stranger should round the point at night When the Mouille light bears S.S.W. a S. by E. course for the anchorage may be shaped, anchoring as soon as the Green Point light is shut in with the hillocks near Mouille Point, or with Mouille Point light bearing N.W. about one mile off, in from 6 to 8 fathonis. Small vessels may steer S. by E. E. for the anchorage in 4 or 5 fathoms, and anchor with the Mouille light bearing about N.W. by N.

   Ships bound to Table Bay from the northward must not take too great liberty with Robben Island on account of its light, for the Island is low, and the dangerous Whale Rock lies S. 17 W., only 1,5 mile from the Light-house and of a mile from the nearest point of the Island.

10

Having sighted the Robben Island light, a ship should haul to the S.W., if the light bear anything to the westward of th, until the flashing light on Green Point bears S. by E. or S.S.E., when she may steer for it until Robben Island light bears N.E., when she may steer S.E. by E.; and when Mouille Light bears S.S. W. steer, as before directed, for the anchorage. With the light upon Robben Island and the Green Point or Morille Point light, a vessel may readily determine her Position by cross bearings; but the safest and easiest plan to adopt is, whislt the Green and Monille lights are open of each other, to fack when the Robben Island light bears N. by W. W., and when they approach each other and become in line, to tack when the Robben Island light bears A. by W. This will prevent accidents from the lowness of the Baumwberg beach and its deceptive appearance at night. Little, if anything, can be lost in thus beating in by giving up the smooth water near the shore, as the constant northerly current that sets out between Robben Island and the main land more than destroys the seem-

ing advantage; added to which, the wind blows with greater violence from the S.E. on the east side of the bay than it does more to the westward, though not in such sudden and violent gusts.*

New Beacon for the Whittle Rock, False Bay.

A Beacon has been erected on a large flat-topped rock near Oatlands Point, which will, in conjunction with the beacon that now stands on the shoulder of the hill beneath Simon's Berg, point out the position of the Whittle Rock. The rock on which the beacon stands lies a few yards from the shore and 0.85 miles from the Shoulder Beacon. When on the Whittle Rock the two beacons will be in a line, and also in line with a large patch of whitewashed rocks on the hill northward of Simon's Town, bearing N.N.W. 3 W. The shoulder beacon is white, with a staff and ball. The Oatlands Point beacon is triangular, 35 feet high, and painted white with a red band in the centre.

The advantage of this beacon is that it points out to ships from the westward that they are clear of the. Whittle Rock whilst it is kept open to the eastward of the Shoulder Beacon. This was somewhat difficult with the patch of whitewashed rocks behind Simon's Town for a mark, as vessels were obliged to run far to the eastward before the patch opened out clear of the shoulder of Simon's Berg hill.

      Vessels from the eastward will still find the white patch of rocks serviceable for pointing out the position of the Whittle Rock.

F. SKEAD, Master R.N., Admiralty Surveyor.

13th July, 1864.

       * Vessels entering Table Bay during the day when blowing hard from S.F. after passing the Mouille Point, may, with great advantage, anchor in 10 or 12 fathoms, where they will be in a good position for dropping into the inner anchorage on the following morning, as the wind invariably falls light during the night' although the S.E. may continue to blow hard on the East side of the Bay. By observing this rule, more particularly in ships of large tonnage, a great deal of anxiety and risk in wearing ship, when missing stays, will be avoided, and less casualties occur from loss of anchors and cables when endeavouring to bring up on

the Eastern shore.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 28TM? JANUARY, 1865.

BRITISH CONSULATE, BANGKOK, January 5th, 1865. SIR, I have the honour to inform you that the Siamese Minister for Foreign Affairs has informed me that the export of Rice from this country will be prohibited from the 25th of January until the 21st of August, 1865.

Vessels that have been chartered before the publication of the Proclamation in Singapore and Hongkong will be allowed to load.

     This step has been taken on account of the smallness of the crop which, from the paucity of rain that has fallen during the last ten months, will not be half an average one.

     I have made no objections to this prohibition because I am aware that there is a great scarcity of Rice, and as the neighbouring countries are in similar or even worse condition unless some step of this sort was taken, the results, to a country in the state of civilization which Siam now is, might be very serious.-I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient humble Servant,

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 4TH FEBRUARY, 1865.

The Bill having gone through Committee, the Governor put the Question-That this Bill do pass, and that the Title be-“An Ordinance to facilitate the Remedies on Bills of Exchange and Promissory Notes by the Prevention of frivolous or fictitious Defences to Actions thereon."

Question put and carried,--the Ordinance being numbered "No. 12 of 1864."

The Bill to amend the Laws of Trade and Commerce was read a second time; And the Council went into Committee upon the said Bill.

The Bill having gone through Committee, the Governor put the Question-That this Bill do pass, and

that the Title be—“An Ordinance to amend the Laws of Trade and Commerce.”

Question put and carried,--the Ordinance being numbered "No. 13 of 1864."

Consideration was given to the Correspondence which had been ordered at the last Mecting to be circulated amongst Members, respecting the Grant of a Pension to the Bishop of Victoria from Colonial Funds; and after discussion, the majority of the Council--the Colonial Treasurer and the Acting Chief Justice dissenting,-agreed to the following Resolutions:

The Council is willing, in consideration of the Colonial Services performed by the Bishop of Victoria without remuneration for several years, to entertain His Lordship's application for a retiring allowance, as an exceptional measure, and to award him a Pension of ?300 per annum from Colonial funds to commence from the date of his retirement.

The Council considers that the principle embodied in the 17th Section of the Hongkong Pension Minute should be applied to any Pension allowed to the Bishop of Victoria from Colonial Funds, and that such Pension should cease if he were to obtain Church preferment elsewhere to an equivalent amount--or if to a less amount his Pension should bear a proportionate

reduction.

The Council would wish also to place on record its opinion that the Bishop of Victoria has no real claim to a Colonial Pension, and that any future Incumbent of the office should be made to understand that the Grant to Bishop Smith is not in any way to be considered as establishing a precedent.

The Council adjourned sine die.

Read and approved, this 2nd Day of February, 1865.

XXV. It shall be lawful for the Court at any time [during the progress of the Trial] to amend the Indictment or Information in any matter of Forin or Substance, the omis sion or insertion of which, as the case may be, has not, in the opinion of the Court, prejudiced [or is calculated to prejudice] the Prisoner in his Defence.

XXVIII. If a Witness, upon Cross-examination as to a former Statement made by tory Statements of ad-him relative to the subject matter of the Cause, and inconsistent with his present Testimony, does not distinctly admit that he has made such Statement, Proof may be given that he did in fact make it; but before such Proof can be given, the circumstances of the supposed Statement, sufficient to designate the particular occasion, must be mentioned to the Witness, and he must be asked whether or not he has made such Statement.

XXIX. A Witness may be cross-examined as to previous Statements made by him as to previous State-in writing or reduced into writing, relative to the subject matter of the Cause, without such writing being shown to him; but if it is intended to contradict such Witness by the writing, his attention must, before such contradictory Proof can be given, be called to those parts of the writing which are to be used for the purpose of so contradicting him: Provided always, that it shall be competent for the Court, at any time during the Trial, to require the production of the Writing for its inspection, and the said Court may thereupon make such use of it, for the purposes of the Trial, as it shall think fit.

HARBOR MASTER'S OFFICE, HONGKONG, 31st January, 1865. SIR,- herewith have the honor to submit for His Excellency's inspection the annual Returns of shipping &c., for this Colony for the year ending 31st December 1864.

The welfare of the Colony is so bound up with its shipping that it will be gratifying to Her Majesty's Government and His Excellency to find that much as the Trade had increased up to 31st December, 1863, (date of last returns) to how much greater an extent do the returns for the last year shew that prosperity to have steadily advanced, the entries at this Port for the years 1863 and 1864 shew 894,924 and 1,013,748 Tons respectively or an increase of 118,824 of which 77,037 Tons are British.

The Trade under the American Flag has fallen off very considerably, the returns for 1860 shewing 231,834 Tons against 56,164 Tons for 1864.--Entries from the United States for last year amount to 46,679 Tons and clearances to 30,712 Tons bat these Cargoes are conveyed principally in Foreign bottoms, the tonnage under the French and German Flags shews a large addition.

Sheets of Export and Imports remain blank from inability (through absence of a Custom House) to keep those returns. Forty four Vessels have been added to the Register Book for this Colony during the year, while thirteen have been struck off.

      The Emigration hence shews a slight decrease.-The Head Quarters for the Government Emigration to the West Indies having been transferred hence to Canton, to some extent, accounts for this--the return Emigrants from various ports are 6,778 in number bringing gold to the amount of ?159,758 Sterling and 1,181,200 dollars.

      The cases tried at the Marine Magistrate's Court are 80 in excess of those of last year, this is to be attributed to the increased number of ships in Port, none of the cases were of a serious nature.

The number of men shipped during the year is 9032 being an increase of 166.

Under Ordinance No. 17 of 1860,-78 Masters and Mates have passed examinations before the Boards established under that Ordinance, other 28 presented themselves but were rejected as being incompetent, this is of itself sufficient evidence that this Ordinance with the compulsory clause 5 of Ordinance No. 1 of 1862,—are productive of good, as most of the applications come from men anxious to obtain employment in China it follows that but for the local law much valuable property and many lives would be in charge of incapable men.

?

      Although Hongkong has progressed so wonderfully since the signing of the Treaty with China in 1861, it must not be forgotten that the Trade of Canton the most Southern open Port in the Chinese Empire has been almost ruined, the opening of the Yang-tze-kiang to Haukow has diverted the transport of Teas &c., to Shanglan for shipment where formerly a great deal of the produce of the Country was conveyed South by land and shipped at Canton Whca, it is however to be hoped that the proposed Railway Scheme will bring the trade back again to the Southern Fors, and should Railway communication be extended to Kowloong, Hongkong would become the principal shipping Port for the whole of China; the Railway system will save much time and danger at present experienced in Ocean and River Navigation by Vessels that under existing circumstances have to ship at the Northern Ports.—I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

SIR HERCULES GEORGE ROBERT ROBINSON, Knight,

Governor of the Colony of Hongkong.

The Humble Petition of the undersigned, Members of the HONGKONG GENERAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, Humbly Sheweth:

P

That whereas it has come to the knowledge of your Petitioners that on the second reading of the Draft Ordinance, entitled The Limited Liability Ordinance of 1864, the said Draft Ordinance was thrown out in the Legislative Council assembled on Thursday the 2nd Instant: A very numerously attended Meeting of the Members of the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce was held upon the 9th Instant for the purpose of fully ascertaining the views of the Commercial Community upon the subjects of which the said Ordinance treats, when the following Resolutions were almost unanimously carried, to say:

Resolution 1.-That this Meeting views with extreme regret the rejection by the Legislative Council of the Companies' Ordinance of 1864 believing that the operation of the principle of Limited Liability of Shareholders in Joint Stock Companies is essential to the general interests of this Colony, and this Meeting therefore resolves that a Petition, to be signed by the Members of this Chamber be presented to His Excellency the Governor, praying that he will be pleased to again introduce the said Ordinance, laying before the Council the Petition as an expression of the opinion of the Mercantile Community of this Colony and of their desire that the said Ordinance be passed.

Resolution 2.-That the Committee of the Chamber of Commerce be authorized by this Meeting to draw up the proposed Memorial, to submit the same for signature to the Members, and to lay it before His Excellency the Governor with all convenient speed.

Resolution 3.--That this Meeting is impressed with the belief that the general Public other than the Members of this Chamber are deeply interested in the proposed Ordinance being carried out, and the Meeting therefore resolves that a similar petition be left open to the Public for signature.

Your Petitioners are deeply impressed with the conviction that the said Ordinance will be the means of developing the general prosperity of the Colony by promoting undertakings not open at present to Individuals or Mercantile Firms, and they are also of opinion that its action would lead to the retention within this Colony of a large portion of the wealth now usually withdrawn by Capitalists, who, from an absence of the security afforded by the Law of Limited Liability are compelled to seek investment elsewhere.

Your Petitioners accordingly humbly pray that Your Excellency will be pleased again to bring forward the said Draft Ordinance for discussion in the Legislative Council, that it may receive Your Excellency's powerful support together with the favorable consideration of the Council, and that it may at an early date become Law in this Colony, and your Petitioners will ever pray.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25?? FEBRUARY, 1865.

To HIS EXCELLENCY

SIR HERCULES G. R. ROBINSON, Knight.

Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the Colony of Hongkong

and its Dependencies and Vice-Admiral of the same.

This Memorial of Residents in the Colony of Hongkong humbly Sheweth: That the Memorialists whose names are hereto subscribed respectfully lay before Your Excellency their anxious desire that the Law of Limited Liability of Shareholders in Joint Stock Companies as prevailing in England may be carried into effect in this Colony.

2. Your Memorialists are aware that an Ordinance embodying this principle and described as the "Companies' Ordinance of 1864" was lately rejected on its second reading in the Legislative Council by a majority of one vote, but your Memorialists are led to believe that this circumstance simply arose from a misapprehension of the views held on this 'important question by the great majority of this Community.

3. Your Memorialists are deeply interested in the prosperity of the Colony and are convinced that its welfare can be largely promoted by Joint Stock Associations formed for the purpose of carrying out such enterprises as cannot be undertaken by single individuals or by Mercantile firms. And your Memorialists clearly perceive that such combinations of private Capital can only be attained through the influence of a measure which will limit responsibility of Shareholders to a fixed

extent.

4. It is most respectfully submitted by your Memorialists that there always is in this place and in the neighbouring Ports of China a certain accumulation of private means not actively used in Commerce, and which could in many ways be advantageously employed were the desired Law in force. There is also a large stream of wealth constantly leaving China, some of which would assuredly remain here for permanent investinent, by means of the facilities created under the operation of the said Law. An amount of outside Capital would thus be attracted to the Colony which would greatly stimulate its industrial character. It is moreover highly probable that nearly all the public Companies at the open Ports of China, would in course of time, avail of the privilege of registration in this Colony which would thus become the Official Head Quarters of many important enterprises, and attain a more eminent position in connection with the trade of China than belongs to it now. 5. Lastly your Memorialists confidently believe that there is nothing exceptional in the character of Hongkong as a place of business, so as to render it unfit to possess the desired facility for local enterprise, and your Memorialists earnestly pray Your Excellency to consider with favour this petition, and again lay before the Legislative Council the “Companies' Ordinance of 1864," together with this prayer of the Inhabitants that the said Ordinance may become the Law of this Colony.

And your Petitioners humbly pray, &c.,

VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF HONGKONG.

No. 2 of 1865.

THURSDAY, 23RD FEBRUARY, 1865.

PRESENT:

     His Excellency the GOVERNOR and all the Members, except the COLONIAL TREASURER. The Council met to-day by Special Summons.

The Minutes of the Council held on the 2nd Instant, were read and approved.

The GOVERNOR laid on the table two Petitions very numerously signed, one being from the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce, the other from 293 Residents in this Colony. The Prayer of both Petitions was to the effect that His Excellency would be pleased again to introduce the Bill known as the Limited Liability Ordinance, which had been rejected at a previous Meeting. The Petitions having been read and received, and His Excellency having expressed his concurrence in

the views therein set forth,-

The Bill, entitled "An Ordinance for the Incorporation, Regulation and Winding-up of Trading Com-

panies and other Associations," was read a first time.

The GOVERNOR then explained to the Council that if the regular interval required by the Rules were allowed to elapse between the first and second reading, the measure could not become law before his departure from the Colony; that the Bill now introduced had been already for some time before the Public, and was identical with that which appeared in the Government Gazette; and that it was thereupon for the Council to decide whether this was a case of emergency which admitted of a suspension of the Rules, at the same time expressing his individual opinion that no inconvenience could ensue from such proceeding, as in the event of the Bill being read a second time, it was his intention to refer the same to a Special Committee.

Whereupon, it was moved by Mr. MURRAY and seconded by the AUDITOR GENERAL, that, the case before the Council being one of emergency within the meaning of the Rules, the one which prescribes an interval of Ten Days to elapse between the first and second reading of a Bill be suspended.

And on His Excellency putting the Question, that the Rule be suspended,-

Debate ensued.

Council divided.

(No. 7.)

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE, VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 31st January, 1865.

SIR,-In accordance with your letter No. 995 of 2nd December 1864, I have the honour to forward the enclosed sheets of the Bine Book filled up, viz., Establishment on 31st December 1864-Population-Ecclesiastical Returns-Agriculture,

and Manufactures.

I beg, also, to enclose the following Returns of the Census of Hongkong for 1864, viz: No. 1, Census of Hongkong- No. 2, Population of Hongkong-No. 3, Classification and number of Houses in Hongkong-No. 4, Return of Chinese residing in Hongkong-No. 5, Mortality amongst the Chinese Population during 1864-No. 6, Boat Population in the Harbour and Bays of Hongkong-No. 7, Summary of Boat Population.

While forwarding these Returns, I would call attention to the seemning decrease in the Population of Hongkong, whereas, undoubtedly there has been a fair increase.

     The Census for 1863 shewed a total population of 124,850, while for 1864 the Returns make only a population of 121,498, hence there is an apparent decrease of 3,852.

However, though in the gross there is this decrease, yet an inspection of the attached Schedules, will manifest a steady increase upon previous years.

In the Returns for 1853, Schedule No. 1, an estimated return is made of 5,000 Street Coolies.

     Being of opinion, that the state of the Colony on 31st December 1864, did not warrant such a return. I have not entered anything under this head, considering that the sum of 2,000 was sufficient to include all the persons who live in matsheds or have no certain dwelling place.

Therefore deducting this item from the total for 1863, the Population would be 119,850, while, as I said before, it is for last year estimated at 121,498, shewing an increase of 1648.

     But the whole Returns shew even a greater increase than this, for a deduction has to be made under the head of Emi- grants; the Office having been removed to Canton--the Emigration Officer acquaints me that on the 31st December 1864, there were no Emigrants living in this Colony.

Hence, though there was a Return made for 1863, there is none made for 1864.

     For the Villages, the Return that only requires notice is the one for Kowloong where there is a difference of 1,053 between this and that for 1863.

Considering the great changes that have taken place on the Cession in Kowloong, the removal of the Village of Tsim- sha-tsui, and a number of detached houses having been pulled down in different places, to carry out the Scheme of the Government for laying out the land,-allowance having been made for these, there will, I conceive, be no difficulty in ac- counting for a diminution just now in the Population there, though the place shews signs of being highly populous at no distant period.

Requesting that these considerations may be submitted with the Returns,-I have the honour to be, Sir, your most obedient servant,

The Honourable

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Registrar General.

    His Excellency the Governor directs the publication of the subjoined Annual Report of the Hongkong General Post Office for 1864.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 8th March, 1865.

(No. 10.)

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG, 22nd February, 1865.

     SIR,-I do myself the honour to report for the information of His Excellency the Governor that the Revenue which accrued from this Department to the Colonial Government during the year 1864, amounted to eighty-six thousand three hundred and forty-one Dollars and eleven cents, being an increase of seventeen thousand five hundred and eighty-one Dollars and two cents on the Revenue for the year 1863, $35,208.36 on the Revenue of 1862, and $51,021.57 on the Revenue of 1861, which shows the steady and continued prosperity of the Office.

The expenditure for the year 1861, so far as the same has been defrayed by the Colony, amounts to twenty-four thousand four hundred and thirty-one Dollars and five cents, or three thousand two hundred and fifteen Dollars and sixty-three cents in excess of the expenditure of the year 1863, and this is accounted for by the continued increase in the gratuities paid to Masters of Vessels, under the 12th Clause of the Post Office Ordinance, for the conveyance of Ship Mails; the employment of an addi- tional Sorter; and the increased expenditure at the Packet Agencies at the Ports in China and Japan.

     The Amount of Imperial Revenue which was collected in Hongkong, and remitted to the General Post Office in London during the year 1864, was twenty-six thousand and sixty-seven Pounds and eleven shillings Sterling, being an increase of ?1,981.6.0 on the Revenue of 1863, ?7,504.9.3 on the Revenue of 1862, and 15,809.7.9 on the Revenue of 1861.

In the cases of both the Imperial and Colonial Revenue I consider the increases to have arisen from the additions which have been made to commerce at the various Ports in China and Japan, and also to the addition to the Mercantile and Banking Population of Hongkong.

     The total Revenue of the Hongkong Post Office for the year 1864 amounts to two hundred and eleven thousand four hundred and sixty-five Dollars and thirty-five cents, or a total excess over the previous years' Revenue of twenty-seven thousand and ninety-one Dollars and twenty-six cents.

From the 1st of August last the business of the Department has been carried on in a portion of the Supreme Court House, and pending the completion of the new Post Office, now in course of erection, these temporary Offices will be sufficient for the requirements of the Department, I fully anticipate however that in the new building I shall be able to give the public increased Facilities, and I hope to make many improvements in the efficiency of the Office.

During the past year the Mails sent and received by the French line of Packets have increased in some small degree. The compulsory use of Colonial Postage Stamps in the payment of postages in Hongkong, and also at the Ports, has met with complete success, and although great opposition was made to the measure at the outset, it is now, I believe, admitted on all sides to have advantages over the old system of payments in money, and so far as the Department and its Agencies are concerned, the introduction and use of Stamps has been found an improvement.

The illegal transmission of correspondence by the great firms still continues, and it has been observed that although some of the houses who have important Agencies at Shanghae seldom receive their Correspondences arriving by the British Contract Packets through the Post, yet in many cases their Correspondence sent from and to the same place by the French Mail Packets through the Post Office, and I submit that this fact goes to show that greater attention is paid to the Regulations and Law which prohibits the transmission of general Correspondence outside the Mails, on board the Messageries Imperiales steamers than is given to the subject on board the Vessels of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, which are under Contract to Her Majesty's Government for the conveyance of Mails, and who are prohibited under that Contract from carrying letters otherwise than in the Mails, excepting of course such letters as are exempt by Law, but notwithstanding, the Vessels of this Company never make a trip to or from the Northern Ports under Contract, or otherwise, without illegally conveying Correspondence, and although I have taken every means in my power to prevent the continuance of the system, which injures the Revenue and gives advantages to those who adopt it, over those who adopt the legal method of sending their Correspondence,

that my attempts have been unsuccessful.

negret to say

The accounts of the department still grow in intricacy, and I am unable to recommend any change which would work dvantageously in the system of keeping them, except it be to adopt a similar system to that which I believe prevails with the Australian Colonies, or some of them, and that is for the Colony to retain all the Revenue collected here, the Imperial Po-t ce acting in like manner with that collected in London, and for the Colony to contribute annually, say ?20,000.0.0, or me other fair fixed sum which might be arranged, to the General Post Office in London, a system of this kind would much

* It should be understood that candidates are at liberty to name at their pleasure any or all of these branches of knowledge (subject only to the restriction above mentioned as to Natural Science), and that no subjects are obligatory.

"Nothing can be further from our wish than to hold out premiums for knowledge of wide surface and of small depth. We are of opinion that e "Candidate ought to be allowed no credit at all for taking up a subject in which he is a mere smatterer.”—--Report of Committee of 1854.

+ Full instructions as to the course of study to be pursued will be issued to the successful candidates as soon as possible after the result of the ope" competition is declared.

The following Report of the Board of Education for 1864, is published for general information.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 20th March, 1865.

W. H. ALEXANDER, Acting Colonial Secretary.

To HIS EXCELLENCY

SIR HERCULES G. K. ROBINSON, Knight,

Governor of Hongkon?, &c., &c.

     The Board of Education have the honour to present to Your Excellency their Annual Report on the state of the Govern- ment Schools in the Island of Hongkong.

In doing so, they desire to report, first, on the Village Schools, and, secondly, on the Central School.

     I. The Board regret that although there are not wanting certain indications of improvement in a few of the Village Schools, there are still many obstacles to be removed before Chinese Education in this Colony is productive of much good.

Among the obstacles which present themselves may be enumerated the following:-

1. The low moral tone of many of the masters, and the difficulty of supplying their places with a class of men superior

in this respect.

2. The extreme indifference of the poorer class of Chinese, in this Colony, to the education of their children.

3. The prejudices they entertain against any change in their own syste:n of teaching.

In reference to the first of these obstacles, it is often painful to find the indifference and obstinacy of the masters in the work of teaching; their attempts at deception with regard to the School Rolls; and the efforts made to make it appear that the whole blame of the inefficiency of the Schools lies not with them, but with the parents and children.

The difficulty of obtaining good masters-men of character for ability and truthfulness-is a source of deep regret; but is a difficulty which is almost insuperable in the present state of the Colony. It is scarcely possible for Europeans to culti- ate that acquaintance with the Chinese which would enable them to judge correctly of their character and attainments. This may be Leing the case, when a master is wanted, application must be made to Chinese in whom some degree of confidence placed; but even these are always ready to use the power thus delegated to them in behalf of some friend or acquaintance, rather than in favour of a man chosen simply for his character and learning.

The second obstacle-the indifference of the Chinese-cannot easily be accounted for, since no fee is charged at the Village Schools.

It is believed, however, that this arises also from the present peculiar state of the Colony. The children who do attend long principally to the boat-population. This being the case, in addition to the impossibility there is of turning education any practical account, their poverty renders them dependent, in some measure, on what can be gained by the manual labour of their children; and this not only makes the attendance irregular, but causes it to be of very short continuance.

The attendance at Chinese Schools is very fluctuating, and this peculiarity is not confined to those in Hongkong. The ambers increase from the Chinese New Year to the month of May, when the attendance is greatest. From that time to the cre of the year the numbers steadily decrease.

At the commencement of last year, of the 21 enrolled at one of the Schools 10 of the pupils were new; of the 22 at ther 12 were new; of the 34 at another 20 were new; and of the 5! at another no fewer than 40 were new. Many of the pupils of the previous year must therefore have left School, perhaps never to return, with no other attainment than the Simple retention in their memories of the names of a few hundred characters, of the meaning of which it is not too much to ay that they knew absolutely nothing.

This state of things would be very much improved if the children of the more respectable Chinese attended the Schools, at these seldom bring their families to the Colony; and, so long as this is the case, it is greatly to be feared that Education will not make that progress here which those interested in it could wish to see.

    As regards the third obstacle mentioned, one great objection made by the Chinese to the Government Schools is that the ystem of teaching by classes is insisted upon. The objection is generally stated thus:-"The books used in English Schools are learnt, not so much perhaps for the information they contain, as that they are a convenient means of acquiring a practical

owledge of the language.

Chinese books, on the other hand, are learnt solely for what they contain: the language in which they are written is not that of every day life: a traditional explanation, to be communicated only by the master, is quired to render them intelligible: and, to be of any use, they must be committed to memory. A Chinese boy, therefore,

Chinese books, on the other hand, are learnt solely for what they contain: the language in which they are written is not that of every day life: a traditional explanation, to be communicated only by the master, is quired to render them intelligible: and, to be of any use, they must be committed to memory. A Chinese boy, therefore,

if absent from School for a few days, could not join his class at the lesson they had reached, as the part he would thereby want is necessary to the understanding of the whole; and, besides, if he were not to resume his studies at the exact point at which he left them, he would fail to learn a number of characters which might not recur again in the whole course of his reading."

     But, allowing that there are peculiarities attending the acquisition of Chinese which are not to be found in other lan- guages the objection does not operate to the extent which they persuade themselves it does. If the children were sent more regularly to School, and the choice of the books to be read left to the masters, acting in this respect in accordance with their instructions from the Board, the objection would be found to be practically invalid. And that it really is so may be seen from the state of the School at Tang-lung-chow, which has the greatest attendance of any Village School in the Colony. The master, several years ago, brought out a system of teaching by classes for himself, and steadily adheres to it-the result being. that his School far surpasses in efficiency any of the others, where, in deference to the prejudices of the parents, the old system is more or less followed, the masters being afraid that a departure from it would leave their Schools empty.

Another objection is that the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Schools. It is very discouraging, after the repeated attempts which have been made to explain to the Chinese that this is not compulsory, but entirely at the option of parents and guardians to find this objection continually put forward: and, that it also is more ostensive than real may be gathered from the fact that in a School supported by one of the Missions, where the Bible must be read, there is a regular attendance of forty children, while there are only some ten or twelve at the Government School in the neighbourhood.

Taking all these things into consideration, and coupling with them the fact that there are so many children in the Colony who never enter a School, and who are, in consequence, growing up in ignorance and vice, the Board, while lament- ing that the advantages offered by Government are not better appreciated, are willing to wait patiently in the hope that, in the ordinary progress of events, the cause of education will ere long present a more favourable aspect.

     The Board have to report a decrease in the number enrolled for the year, but it is satisfactory to find that the attendance is much more regular, as will be seen from the Tabular Statement appended. This attendance is judged of, not from the reports of the masters, but from the state of the Schools as found by the Inspector on the days of his visits.

     The School Rolls are now more faithfully kept than formerly, although there are still instances of considerable discrepancy between the number recorded and the number actually found present. At the same time, the entire blame of this cannot be thrown on the masters. As Chinese Schools are open from 6 o'clock in the morning to 4 o'clock in the afternoon, it is possible that most or those marked present may have been so at some portion of the day which suited either their own or their parents'

convenience.

     The Board have pleasure in reporting on the favourable state of the Schools at Tang-lung-chow, and Stanley, together with the Girls' School in Victoria.

The first of these has a larger and more regular attendance than any of the other Schools. At the examination for Prizes recently held, the number of books which had been read during the year, the accuracy with which the lessons had been learnt, and the discipline which was maintained, were deserving of special commendation.

The School which occupies the next place is that at Stanley. In the course of two years the present master has raised the attendance from almost nothing to an average of thirty-thus deserving the promotion promised to him of being placed in the first grade of teachers with an increase of salary.

to

The improvement at the Girls' School is particularly marked. It was thought last year that it would be necessary ti dismiss the master on account of negligence; but the caution then given him has had the effect of raising his School to be the third in order of merit.

The Board regret that the School at West Point does not this year occupy its previous place either in numbers or effi- ciency. The causes of this are not very apparent, although it may be attributed, in part, to the feeble health of the master.

Of the other Schools it is not necessary to enter into details. They are far from being in a satisfactory condition; and so strongly are the Board of this opinion that if another year does not show any improvement they will deem it advisable to recommend their discontinuance, and the centralizing of education in Victoria and its immediate neighbourhood.

     The education at all these Schools is exclusively Chinese, if the reading of the Scriptures be excepted. These, however, are taught to the pupils in their native language.

The Board have not been able to entertain the requests made by several Villages for the restoration of old or the esta- blishment of new Schools. In the former case sufficient results have not been shown to justify the Board in granting any further aid than the School-houses already lent. In the latter, the counter-petitions presented show that it was only when rival candidates, for the office of Government Schoolmaster, held forth to them the hope of a pecuniary reward that they entertained the idea of educating their children.

     Although the Board have thus deemed it necessary to dwell at considerable length on the drawbacks which are experi enced in the conduct of the Village Schools they have not done so with the intention of impeding the cause of education in Hongkong; but they have acted in the belief that a faithful statement of the real difficulties with which it is beset will do more to its advancement than if the favourable aspects of the case had been brought more prominently into view.

     II. In entering on the second part of their Report, the Board have pleasure in referring to the state of the Central School.

Being now more efficiently conducted from the appointment of an additional English master, of considerable experience in teaching, it is likely, in the course of a few years, to justify the hopes entertained on its establishment. It is attended, principally, by a class of boys superior to those at the Village Schools; and, for this reason, the Board have resolved that, for the future, fees shall be charged against all the pupils.

The School is divided into two Departments which comprise the ordinary branches of an English and Chinese education -the latter being considerably superior to that imparted at the Village Schools, from the fact of admission being allowed only on passing the Entrance Examination in the more commonly used Chinese Books. The Bible is not used as a text-book, in English, but it is taught by the Chinese masters, in their own language, to those pupils whose parents offer no objections. Being under the immediate superintendence of European masters, the School does not experience the same difficulties in its management as the others do. With some little firmness necessary at its commencement a daily attendance has been secured, which, in regularity, will bear favourable comparison with that of any school in England. The pupils, too, from the adva?- tages they anticipate from a knowledge of English, are, as a rule, diligent and obedient; and, when not too old, show consi- derable aptitude in the acquisition of the language.

     The School continues to grow in favour with the Chinese. Admission is eagerly sought by many more than can received; and the Board entertain the hope that the favourable impression which this School seems to have made will extend itself also to the Village Schools, as prejudices are gradually removed, and confidence established in the benevolent intentions of the Government.

On behalf of the Board,
