Packets of Patterns are subject to the following regulations:-

       1st. The Patterns or Samples must not be of intrinsic value. This rule excludes all articles of a saleable nature, and, indeed, whatever may have a value ofits own, apart from its mere use as a Pattern or Sample; and the quantity of any material sent ostensibly as a Pattern or Sample must not be so great that it can fairly be considered as having, on this ground,

an intrinsic value.

2nd. There most be no writing or printing, in addition to the address of the person for whom the packet is intended, ande address of the sender, other than a trade mark and numbers, and the prices of the articles; and these particulars must in all cases be given, not on loose pieces of paper, but on small labels attached to the Samples, or the bags containing them. 3rd. The Patterns or Simples must be sent in covers open at the ends, so as to be easy of examination. Samples, however, of seeds, drugs, and so forth, which cannot be sent in open covers, may be enclosed in bags of linen or other material, tied at the neck; or the bags may be entirely closed provided that they be transparent, so that the Officers of the Post Office may be able to satisfy themselves as to the nature of the contents.

4th. No article likely to injure the contents of the Mail Bags, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office, may be sent through the Post as a Pattern; but the rule is so far relaxed in this case as to permit Patterns of Scissors, Knives, Razors, Forks, and such like articles to be forwarded, provided they be packed and guarded in so secure a manner as to afford complete protection to the contents of the Mail bags, whilst, at the same time, the Patterns may be easily examined.

      5th. No packet of Patterns or Samples must exceed two feet in length, one foot in breadth or depth, or three pounds in weight.

If either of the foregoing rules be infringed, the packet will not be forwarded.

1 intrinsic value.

2nd. There must be no writing or printing, in addition to the address of the person for whom the packet is intended, id the address of the sender, other than a trade mark and numbers, and the prices of the articles; and these particulars must all cases be given, not on loose pieces of paper, but on small labels attached to the Samples, or the bags containing them. 31st 3rd.

Samples, however, seeds, drugs, and so forth, which cannot be sent in open covers, may be enclosed in bags of linen or other material, tied tant the neck; or the bags may be entirely closed provided that they be transparent, so that the Officers of the Post Office may

able to satisfy themselves as to the nature of the contents.

s to

4th. No article likely to injure the contents of the Mail Bags, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office, may be int through the Post as a Pattern; but the rule is so far related in this case as to permit Patterns of Scissors, Knives, 1 beazors, Forks, and such like articles to be forwarded, provided they be packed and guarded in so secure a manner as to afford

mplete protection to the contents of the Mail bags, whilst, at the same time, the Patterns may be easily examined.

         th. No packet of Patterns or Samples must exceed two feet in length, one foot in breadth or depth, or three pounds in s ateight.

It is on every account to be wished that Her Majesty's Possessions may be well represented in the approaching Exhibition, and I have to request that you will take measures for ascertaining whether the inhabitants of the Colony under your government desire to be so represented. If this should be the case, you will observe that the first step will be to appoint Committee of Superintendence and a Special Commissioner, to conduct the correspondence with this country.-I have the nor to be, Sir, Your most obedient, hunible Servant,

Sin--I am directed by the Lords of the Committee of Council on Education to transmit one hundred copies of the general regulations and classification issued by the Imperial Commission for the guidance of intending exhibitors in the International Exhibition to be held in Paris in 1867, and a list of the several amounts of space which it is proposed to allot

to each colony.

It being important that the colonies should be well represented, my Lords request that you will move Mr. Cardwell to he, as early as convenient, such steps as he may consider necessary for drawing the attention of each colony to these alations, &c., and direct me to observe, that in making known the space offered, it should be distinctly understood that proposed allotment in each case is nett space, exclusive of passage room, for which ample provision has been made, and

quently the entire space offered may be filled with goods.

My Lords suggest that each colony should for:n a Committee having sufficient experience, and invested with authority, cure a due representation of the industry and resources of the colony; and that it should place one special Executive Commissioner in direct communication with the Science and Art Department at South Kersington.

It is desirable that each Colony should inform the Lords of the Committee of Council on Education, with as little delay possible, if it will undertake to fill the space offered; and if not, to state what diminution in the space may be made.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 20TH JANUARY, 1866.

The Imperial Commission having decided upon a particular mode of arrangement into classes and groups, which is set forth in the regulations, the same principle of arrangement will be adopted by Great Britain, and it will be necessary that the colonies also conform to it. My Lords direct me to request, therefore, that the Executive Commissioner from each colony should transmit before the 1st August, 1866, to the Science and Art Department, South Kensington, the space which the colony proposes to occupy, divided into the respective ten groups (which several divisions will be taken as the bases for the final arrangement in the Exhibition building and park), together with a list of the names and addresses of the exhibitors in

each class.

My Lords request that all letters from the colonies may be addressed to the Secretary, Science and Art Department, South Kensington, London.-I have &c.,

DOWNING STREET, 16th October, 1865.

SIR,In reply to your letter of the 9th instant, enclosing, for transmission to certain colonies specified in an accompany- ing list, copies of General Regulations and Classification issued by the Imperial Commission, for the guidance of intending exhibitors in the International Exhibition, to be held in Paris in 1867; I'am directed by Mr. Secretary Cardwell to express to you his readiness to forward to the Governors of the colonies named in your list, copies of your letter, and of the printed regulations therein enclosed; but I am at the same time to observe, that while the list includes very small colonies, others of the same or larger importance are omitted from that list. Mr. Cardwell has, therefore, thought it safest to enquire whether the omissions were, in all respects, intentional. I annex a list showi the colonies excluded from that enclosed in letter. Mr. Cardwell directs me to suggest whether it may not be convenient to allot a certain proportion of space to the follow- ing groups of colonies, viz.:

1. Windward Islands; containing Barbadoes, Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Tobago.

2. Leeward Islands; containing Antigua, St. Christopher, Dominica, Virgin Islands, Montserrat, Nevis."

3. West Africa Settlements, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Gold Coast, Lagos. Placing the subdivision in the hands of some committee or officer at Barbadces, Antigua, and Sierra Leone, respectively.

Sierra Leone has recently set on foot an Industrial Exhibition of its own.

The Committee of Council will, of course, understand that Mr. Cardwell makes these suggestions on the supposition that. they may not have had fully before them the circumstances and relations of the different colonies when their allotment of space was made. Whatever the decision of the Committee may be, he will most readily make the necessary communication to the colonies. I am &c.

PARIS UNIVERSAL EXHIBITION, SOUTH KENSINGTON, 21st October, 1865.

space

  I am to observe that in apportioning the space to the different colonies, my Lords were guided by the requirements as shown in the International Exhibitions which were held at Paris in 1855, and in London in 1862. No articles from any of the colonies mentioned in the list accompanying your letter were exhibited in either of those Exhibitions.

  My Lords are, however, desirous that every British colony should be represented in the forthcoming Exhibition to be held at Paris in 1867, but as they have no data by which they can ascertain the requirements of those colonies which have not previously exhibited, they do not consider that it would be advisable to allot any fixed amount of space to them, but will be prepared to receive for exhibition any articles which may be forwarded to them through a properly accredited agency.

  Their Lordships thank Mr. Secretary Cardwell for his suggestion respecting the grouping together of certain of the colonies for better and more convenient representation, and I am to request that you will nove Mr. Cardwell to take the necessary steps for obining the appointment of Committees for-

En cons?quence, la Commission imp?riale ne correspond pas avec les exposants ?trangers.

 Tout produit pr?sent? par un producteur ?tranger n'est admis que par l'intervention de la Commission ?trang?re, dont celui- ci rel?ve comme exposant.

 Les Commissaires ?trangers, pourvoient d'ailleurs selon leurs convenances, au transport, ? la reception, ? l'installation et ? la r?exp?dition des produits de leurs nationaux, en se confor- mant toutefois aux mesures d'ordre prescrites par la Commis- sion imp?riale.

POST OFFICE NOTIFICATION.

It is hereby notified for general information that the following modifications have been made in the regulations for the transmission of Patterns by post from Hongkong to the United Kingdom by way of Southampton.

1st. The removal of the prohibition against the transmission of articles of intrinsic value by the Pattern and Sample Post. 2nd. Samples of Seeds, drugs and similar Articles are now allowed to be sent in bags entirely closed, provided such bags be transparent, so that the Officers of the Post Office may satisfy themselves as to the nature of the contents.

3rd. The rule which prohibited the transmission through the post, as patterns, of articles of cuttlery, &c., has been rescinded, and scissors, knives, razors, forks, steel pens, nails, keys, watch machinery, metal tubing, pieces of metal or ore, and such like articles, are now allowed to be forwarded by the post as samples, provided they be packed and guarded in so secure a manner as to afford complete protection to the contents of the mail bags, and to the persons of the Officers of the Post Office.

         Such articles however must be so packed that they may be easily examined, and it is made a rule that any packet containing such articles which may be found to be insufficiently guarded shall not be forwarded through the post.

        It will be understood that the foregoing modified regulations extend only to Patterns to be sent in the mails forwarded by way of Southampton to the United Kingdom, at the same time the regulations at present in force as to the transmission of Patterns in the mails forwarded by way of Marseilles to the United Kingdom have been so far altered as to admit of samples of seeds, drugs and similar articles being forwarded in the mails via France packed in transparent bags which may be closed: such bags, however must not contain anything in the nature of a letter and the articles themselves so forwarded must not be of intrinsic value.

1st. The removal of the prohibition against the transmission of articles of intrinsic value by the Pattern and Sample Post. 2nd. Samples of Seeds, drugs and similar Articles are now allowed to be sent in bags entirely closed, provided such bags be transparent, so that the Officers of the Post Office may satisfy themselves as to the nature of the contents.

      Brd. The rule which prohibited the transmission through the post, as patterns, of articles of cuttlery, &c., has been rescinded, and scissors, knives, razors, forks, steel pens, nails, keys, watch machinery, metal tubing, pieces of metal or ore, and such like articles, are now allowed to Le forwarded by the post as samples, provided they be packed and guarded in so serute a manner as to afford complete protection to the contents of the mail bags, and to the persons of the Officers of the Post Office. Such articles however must be so packed that they may be easily examined, and it is made a rule that any packet containing such articles which may be found to be insufficiently guarded shall not be forwarded through the post.

It will be understood that the foregoing modified regulations extend only to Patterns to be sent in the mails forwarded by way of Southampton to the United Kingdom, at the same time the regulations at present in force as to the transmission of Patterns in the mails forwarded by way of Marseilles to the United Kingdom have been so far altered as to admit of samples ofoods, drugs and similar articles being forwarded in the mails via France packed in transparent bags which may be closed: such bags however must not contain anything in the nature of a letter and the articles themselves so forwarded must not be of intrinsic value.

It shows through an angle of 16P 30 illuminating the western horizon, and is cut off on two bearings, respectively, N. N. W. and S. 3 E. from the Light House, the former passing one and a half miles clear of the Patch Buoy, off Amherst to the west; and the latter, one and a quarter miles clear of Callagouk Island, also to the west. beam of light shows from the Patch Buoy eastward as far as Amherst Point.

The Officer Administering the Government of Hongkong.

EDWARD CARDWELL.

[L. S.]

AT THE COURT AT WINDSOR,

the 5th day of December, 1865. PRESENT:

THE QUEEN'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

Whereas by "The Passengers' Act, 1855," it is amongst other things enacted, that before any Passenger Ship shall be cleared out, the Emigration Officer at the port of clearance shall satisfy himself that there is on board a sufficient quantity of pure water, carried in tanks or casks, to secure throughout the intended voyage the issue of three quarts daily to each statute adult, for the use of the Passengers, exclusive of the quantity required for cooking:

And whereas it is also enacted, that it shall be lawful for Her Majesty, by any Order in Council, to prescribe such rules and regulations as to Her Majesty may seem fit, for permitting the use on board Passenger Ships of an apparatus for distilling water, and for defining in such case the quantity of fresh water to be carried in tanks or casks for the passengers, and such Order in Council from time to time to alter, amend and revoke, as occasion may require:

And whereas Her Majesty, by an Order in Council dated the ninth day of January, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, prescribed certain rules for permitting the use on board Passenger Ships propelled by steam engines of less than a certain power, and on board Passenger Ships propelled by sails, of a certain apparatus for distilling fresh water from salt water: And whereas it is expedient to repeal the said Order in Council, and to issue in lieu thereof the Order hereinafter contained: Now, therefore, Her Majesty doth, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, and in pursuance and in exercise of the authority vested in Her by the said "Passengers' Act, 1855," hereby repeal the said Order in Council of the ninth day of January, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, except in so far as the same repeals a certain Order in Council of the thirteenth day of May, one thousand eight hundred and fifty-nine, and doth hereby order as follows:

      Any Passenger Ship propelled by sails only, or by steam engines of less power than is sufficient, without the aid of sails, to propel the ship at the rate of five statute miles an hour, may be cleared out and proceed on her voyage, having on board, in tanks or casks, only half of the quantity of pure water required by the said Act to be carried for the use of the Passengers, provided the following conditions be observed, that is to say:--

1. That there be on board such Ship an efficient apparatus for distilling fresh water from salt water, of the description commonly known either as Normandy's patent, as Winchester and Graveley's patent, or as Chaplin and Company's patent.

2. That the Owners, Charterers, or Master of such Ship, before clearance, lodge with such Emigration Officer a Certificate from the Engineer or Surveyor of the Board of Trade, or from some other competent person to be named by such Emigration Officer, declaring that within seven days immediately preceding the date of such Certificate, the apparatus has been examined

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1866.

by him, and is then in good working condition, and stating the number of imperial gallons of pure fresh water which it is capable of producing in every twenty-four hours, and further declaring that the apparatus on board is either Normandy's, Winchester and Graveley's, or Chaplin and Company's Patent, as the case may be.

   3. That in every case such Emigration Officer shall be satisfied that the number of gallons of pure water which the apparatus is so certified to be capable of producing is not less than the whole number of persons about to proceed on the intended voyage of such Ship, that is to say, the whole number of Cabin Passengers, Passengers, and Crew.

   4. That there is rated on the Ship's Articles, and that there is on board the Ship, some person or persons who, to the satisfaction of the said Emigration Officer, shall be competent for the proper management and repair of such distilling

apparatus :

   And to prevent all doubts on the construction of this Order in Council, it is hereby further Ordered, that the terms "Passenger Ship," "Emigration Officer," "Statute Adult," and "Master" shall herein have the same significations as are assigned to them respectively in the said "Passengers' Act, 1855:"

And the Right Honorable Edward Cardwell, one of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, is to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.

No. 13.

W. H. ALEXANDER,

Acting Colonial Secretary.,

HARBOR MASTER'S OFFICE, HONGKONG, 5th February, 1866.

SIR,I have the honor to forward the annual Returns of Shipping, &c., for the year ending 31st December, 1865. The gross trade of the Colony is still advancing, shewing an excess of nearly 50,000 tons; from Great Britain and Australia there is a decline in tonnage; from the former place of 23,321 tons, and the latter of 11,571 tons; there is also a decrease in the direct, trade from Japan, amounting to 11,199 tons, as well as a large reduction in the amount of Tonnage from Siam, due to the late prohibition to the export of rice from that Country, a prohibition which led to an extensive introduction of that grain from India. In connection with this I am able to report a very large increase to the trade between Hongkong and India, and Hongkong and Coast of China; between the first named places the gross tonnage entered is 297,288 tons, being an increase of 67,450 tons, and it is satisfactory to know that this excess is due to Ships carrying the British Flag.-The trade between the last mentioned places for 1865 exceeds that of 1864 by*64,140 tons, but the increase of tonnage by the British Flag alone amounts to 75,338, the difference being made up by the reduction of the number of foreign Flags in these seas, their tonnage having fallen off 11,198 tons; the entire British tonnage from Indian and Chinese Ports gives the large addition of 142,401 tons on the last year's arrivals, the trade between Java and this has increased but chiefly in foreign Vessels. The arrivals from South America shew an addition of 12,336 tons also in foreign bottoms, these being the Vessels whose principal employment is the conveyance of Chinese Emigrants from Macao.-The large increase of tonnage under the British Flag is doubtless due to the introduction of steam, and when the coal mines of Labuan and neighbouring Countries shall supply this Colony with regularity, and Steam Vessels can be more cheaply worked, sailing Vessels will find a difficulty in obtaining employment for short voyages.

The great diminution in the number of Junks frequenting the Port is worthy of observation, and is suggestive of the much greater confidence which Chinese Merchants place in the carriage of their goods in foreign Vessels than hitherto; if more Ports in the South of China were open the whole of the Junk trade would soon cease, and with it Piracy, for there can be little doubt but that every armed Junk becomes a Pirate when an opportunity offers.

In the Shipping returns the trade between this, Canton and Macao, whether by Steamers or Junks, is not included; but I have taken steps to ensure that, so far as the Steamers are concerned, the report for 1866 shall contain that information; the establishment of a Registry of the Junks frequenting this Port would also add much to our knowledge of the trade done by those Vessels.

Sheets of Exports and Imports remain blank from inability (through absence of a Custom House) to keep those returns. Twenty-nine Vessels were registered during the year, and thirty-one struck off for yarious reasons as shewn in Return No. 10. The total Emigration hence shews little difference on last year, that to California having since May last wholly ceased, the Chinese returned are also fewer in number and bringing much less Gold than has been usual.

The number of men shipped and discharged amount to 7,862, and 7,900, respectively, shewing a decrease on the previous year; this is consequent on the want of employment for sailing ships during the late summer when the average number of Vessels in Port was about 250.

Forty-four Candidates have passed examinations, and eighteen have been rejected, under Ordinance 17 of 1860. The cases tried in the Marine Magistrate's Court amount to 228, being composed principally of refusal of duty, and disorderly conduct.-I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

Samples, however, of seeds, drugs, and so forth, which cannot be sent in open covers, may be enclosed in bags of linen or other material, tied at the neck, or the bags may be entirely closed provided that they be transparent, so that the Officers of the Post Office may be able to satisfy themselves as to the nature of the contents.

4th.--No article likely to injure the contents of the mail bags, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office, may be sent through the Post as a pattern.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 23rd February, 1866.

W. H. ALEXANDER, Acting Colonial Secretary.

NOTIFICATION.

BATAVIA, 16th January, 1866.

   The Director of ways and means makes known, that the two easterly Beacons of the Pan-Reef (northern entrance of the Riouw straits) have been destroyed.

The Beacons will be replaced as soon as the weather permits.

POST OFFICE NOTIFICATION.

(Signed) C. CASTENS.

It is hereby notified for general information that henceforward the fee for Registering a letter posted at this Office addressed to the United Kingdom will be reduced from Sixpence to Fourpence.

F. W. MITCHELL,

General Post Office, Hongkong, 23rd February, 1866.

POST OFFICE NOTIFICATION.

Postmaster General.

It is hereby notified for general information that under the terms of an additional postal convention which has recently been concluded between the United Kingdom and Belgium, and of a Treasury Warrant dated the 22nd July last, the postage of Letters, Newspapers, and Book Packets transmitted to and from Hongkong and Belgium by way of the United Kingdom will remain unchanged, but certain alterations have been made in the terins of the Book Post, and a Pattern Post has been established between Hongkong and Belgium.

In future, under the term "Book Packets" may be forwarded not only stitched or bound books, pamphlets, and sheets of music, but also printed proof sheets, with ordinary corrections in writing and manuscripts attached to such proofs, and having reference to them, as well as legal and other documents in manuscript, photographs and drawings (so long as those articles are not on glass or placed under glass), prints or maps, printed, engraved, or lithographed, and whether on paper, parchment, or vellum; but no letter or communication of the nature of a letter must be forwarded in such packets, or in or upon their covers.

   Further, all legitimate binding, mounting, or covering of a book, publication, &c., or of a portion thereof, will be allowed, whether such binding, &c., be loose or attached, as also rollers in the case of prints or maps, markers, (whether of paper or otherwise), in the case of books, and, in short, whatever is necessary for the safe transmission of literary or artistic matter, or usually appertains thereto.

1st.-The Patterns, or Samples must not be of intrinsic value.

Patterns, or Samples of merchandize, may also, in future, be sent to Belgium, at the same rates of postage as Book Packets, and subject to the following Regulations:

                        This rule excludes all articles of a saleable nature, and, indeed, whatever may have a value of its own, apart from its mere use as a pattern or sample; and the quantity of any material sent ostensibly as a pattern or sample must not be so great that it can fairly be considered as having, on this ground,

an intrinsic value.

2nd. There must be no writing or printing, in addition to the address of the person for whom the packet is intended, and the address of the sender, other than a trade mark and numbers, and the prices of the articles, and these particulars must in all cases be given, not on loose pieces of paper, but on small labels attached to the samples, or the bags containing them.

3rd. The Patterns or Samples must be sent in covers open at the ends, so as to be easy of examination. Samples, however, of seeds, drugs, and so forth, which cannot be sent in open covers, may be enclosed in bags of linen or other material, tied at the neck, or the bags may be entirely closed provided that they be transparent, so that the Officers of the Post Office may be able to satisfy themselves as to the nature of the contents.

4th. No article likely to injure the contents of the mail bags, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office, may sent through the Post as a pattern.

The following are the rates of British postage chargeable on correspondence sent from Hongkong to Belgium by way Southampton, viz:

Not exceeding

Above an ounce and not exceeding 1 ounce.

30 cents.

60 cents.

an ounce.

FOR A LETTER Above 1 ounce and not excceding 2 ounces. $1.20.

The postage on letters may be paid at the time of posting or it may be left to be collected on delivery of the letters, in the case of Newspapers and Packets of Books or Printed Papers and of Samples of Merchandize, prepayment of the postage is compulsory.

  Newspapers and Prices Current may be sent unpaid to Belgium vi? Marseilles, but Packets of Printed Papers and Samples cannot be forwarded from Hongkong to Belgium vi? Marseilles.

If either of the foregoing rules be infringed, the packet will not be forwarded.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

His Excellency the ACTING GOVERNOR directs the publication of the subjoined Annual Report of the Hongkong General Post Office for the Year 1865.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 26th February, 1866.

W. H. ALEXANDER, Acting Colonial Secretary.

No. 7.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG, 22nd February, 1866.

SIR,-In transmitting for the information of His. Excellency the Acting Governor this my Sixth Annual Report of the Revenue and Expenditure and general working of this Department, being that for the year 1865, I have the honor to point ent, that, although the figures shew that the revenue which the Colonial Government acquired in the year 1865 is somewhat less than it was in the year 1864, yet this apparent diminution is to a great extent accounted for by the altered system of Accounts which was brought into operation on the 1st March last, under which the profits on the Remittances made to London have not been credited to the Post Office, as was the case in former years, and as these from March to December 1864 amounted to $10,653.05, it is proper, for the sake of comparison, to add this sum to the Revenue actuaily received;-in the year just closed the profit on exchange in the Remittances of Revenue from Shanghae, was $024.68 less than it was in 1804.

        The revenue collected at the Packet Agency Shanghae on loose letters (i. e. letters carried outside the Mails), in the year 1904 amounted to $3,466.18, whilst that received in the year 1865 was $1,672.01 only; this reduction of revenue is occasioned by an arrangement which obtains there for the masters of Vessels arriving at Shanghae to deliver all their loose letters at the Local Post Office; these formerly were taken to the British Packet Agency, and it is proper to remark that the Steamers of the Peninsular and Oriental Company are not exceptions to this rule, although the Messageries Imperiales Packets deliver de correspondence conveyed by them, to the French Post Office at-Shanghae.

To find the Colony's share of Revenue for the past year, the change in the mode of keeping the Accounts bas made it ecessary to deduct from the total revenue received, the amount remitted to the General Post Office in London, and for the same cause it became necessary that the debts amounting to $6,839.98 due to that Office by the Packet Agents at the Ports is China and Japan should be taken over by the Colony, and it is therefore also necessary in comparing the Colonial Revenue of 1865 with that of 1864, to add that sum to last year's revenue.

The difference between the amounts outstanding due to the Colony at the end of each of these years would be a very per item to add to or deduct from, as the case might require, the last years revenue; but as in the year 1864 this was put down inclusive of the unsold postage Stamps on hand at the Packet Agencies, and in 1865 the sums due at these Agencies properly estimated without the Stamps on hand, the difference under this head cannot, with any proper degree of certainty,

e contrasted.

The comparative account then stands thus:

Total amount of Revenue (Imperial and Colonial) collected during the year 1865, Imperial portion of the same (?27,207.18.54),

$192,143.06

130,886.03

leaving Colonial portion,.

€1,257.03

against $86,341.11 revenue of 1864, the difference being inade up principally, by

Profit on remittances made to London in 1864, the corresponding item not being included in

Post Office revenue for 1865,...

10,653.05

Excess of Profits on Remittances from Shanghae in 1864 over those of 1865,

624.68

Amount due to London Office on the 1st March, 1865, paid by the Colony under the changed

plan of keeping accounts,..

6,839.98

$79,374.74

which shews a decrease of $6,900.37 in the ordinary Colonial Revenue of 1865, as compared with that of 1864.

     This decrease may be accounted for in numerous ways, such as the inroads the French Post Office has made upon the venne by the extension of the French line of Packets from Shanghae to Yokohaman; the extended operations of the Shanghae tal Post Office, and the depressed state of Commerce in China and Japan.

?

100

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD MARCH, 1866.

The Imperial Postal Rvenue collected in 1865 is ?1,200.7.5 in excess of the Imperial Revenue of 1864.

I have already pointed out the Imperial portion of Revenue collected here last year has been ?27,267.18.51, the Imperial share of Revenue collected in Loudon on outward mails must of course be greater; although I have not the means of ascertaining it exactly, assuming it however to be but little in excess, it still shews that the Hongkong Post Office contributes a sum of not less than say ?60,000 per annum in aid of the Postal subsidy.

The altered system of keeping the Accounts of the Department above referred to has been found so far to work well. The expenditure for the year 1865, so far as the same has formed a charge upon the Colonial Government, amounts to $25,413.59 or $982.54 in excess of that of the previous year; which is partially accounted for by an addition to the Staff of one Sorter who was appointed on the 10th February, 1865, at $720 per annum; this sum does not however include the cost of the new building, or the subsidy for the English Mail Contract, which disbursements are not made through the Department.

The Staff of the establishment now consists of--

1 Postmaster General,

1 Assistant do.,

1 Clerk,

1 Charge Taker, and

5 Sorters,

1 Compradore,

1 Head Coolie,

9 Ordinary Coolies, and

5 Boatmen,

and there are 8 Agencies under its control, viz.: at

Canton,

Swatow,

Amoy,

Foochowfoo,

Ningpo,

Shanghae,

Nagasaki, and Yedo;

C

in the case of Shanghae, the Colonial Government contributes a portion of the Packet Agent's Salary, the rest being paid by the Imperial Post Office, which Department also pays the salaries of each of the other Packet Agents; all other expenditure at the Ports being borne by the Colony-the Hongkong Post Office also keeps an account with the Post Office at Macao, and the same instructions are issued to the Office of Macao as are given to the British Packet Agents, but the salary of the Postmaster of Macao is defrayed by the Portuguese Government, which gives security to this Department, for the revenue received there;-with the exception of Shangle, the Packet Agents are all Officers in the British Consular Service.

Mails are also sent to the Legation at Pekin, and to the British Consuls at various other Ports, but with the exceptions indicated, there are no regularly appointed or paid Packet Agents.

The new building was opened to the Public on the 12th September last, and it has been found in all respects sufficient to meet the increased requirements of the Colony.

On the 25th September last I issued a new code of regulations for the guidance of the Officers of the Department, and these were published in pamphlet form.

I am unable to report that any improvement has taken place on the subject which was touched upon in my previous report as to the illicit conveyance of correspondence by the British Contract Packets between Hongkong and Shanghae; on the contrary, my letter of the 28th July last, No. 43, will have informed you of the continuance of the practice, and also of a defect in the Colonial Law which places the Company subsidized by the Crown without the compass of the Law which affects the Masters of Vessels not under Contract to carry Mails.

The loss to the Public, and the inconvenience caused to the Department by the continuation of this system, can hardly be overestimated, and notwithstanding every endeavour has been made by the Officers of the Post Office, to counteract it, it has been found, in the present state of the Law, to be practically impossible to effect any improvement.

 The compulsory use of Postage Stamps in the payment of postages both here and at the various Packet Agencies at the Ports of China and Japan is still found to be an advantage, the Stamps now in use however, although of 10 separate values, are not wholly suitable to the present rates of postage, and the introduction of four additional kinds, viz.: a 10 cent Stamp, a 32 cent Stamp, a 53 cent Stamp, and a 480 cent Stamp would be received by the Public as a convenience.

Towards the close of the past year the time for posting correspondence for the Mails by the British Contract Packets was extended from 6 P.M. on the evening prior to the Packets departure until 9 A.M. on the morning of her departure, and a box for the receipt of Correspondence has been kept open during the night; this box however except for the use of persons who reach the Office just after the closing of the Windows at 6 P.M. has been almost in disuse.

$163,982.98 has been received for Postage Stamps sold during the year 1865.

 The Colony's Share of the Postage on Mails received fron London during the year 1865 amounted to ?1,241.19.0 or ?44.14.6 in excess of the Colonial Revenue from the same source in the previous year.

 During the year 1865, 230,073 Letters and 158,011 Newspapers and Prices Current, were sent in the Mails by the British Packets to London, and 9,870 Letters and 5,136 Newspapers and Prices Current, were sent in the Mails by the French Packets to London; no account is taken of the number of letters and papers received at Hongkong, in the Mails by either the English or French Packets.

904 Registered Letters were received from London, and 979 Registered Letters were dispatched to London during the year 1865.

 1,233 Ship Mails (i.e. Mails carried otherwise than by the subsidized Packets) were received at the Hongkong Post Office during the year 1865, and 1,506 Ship Mails were dispatched during the same period.

 During the past year 1,269 Official Letters on the business of the Office were received, and 794 letters transmitted in reply; this is exclusive of printed Time Bills, Letter Bills, Returns, &c., and of numerous Unofficial applications for information made in Memoranda and Notes.

In the month of November last an agreement was entered into between His Lordship the Postmaster General in England

for

and the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company under which the system of fines for overtime and premiums time saved on the voyage, which was then in operation on the line between Point de Galle and Sydney, was extended to all the services for which the Company are under contract with the Post Office.

 I inclose a Return shewing the number of days allowed for the conveyance of the Mails from London to Hongkong vi Southampton and vi?

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 3rd March, 1866.

  A very general impression having prevailed that the year 1865, the subject of my Seventh Annual Report, has been marked by an extraordinary amount of Sickness and Mortality, it becomes my duty to point out how far this impression has been well founded in regard to certain classes of the population, and at the same time to show that amid some startling instances of sudden death, the general average Mortality of the Resident European and American population, has actually been below that of the two years immediately preceding. This I shall do very briefly by reference to the instructive tables, which I have been enabled, with the kind cooperation of my professional brethren, to draw up, and which will, in some measure, enable me to explain the reasons of the enormous increase in the general Mortality, which has prevailed amongst the Residents of Hongkong in the year 1865:-reasons which, it will in part appear, are not necessarily connected with a greatly increased amount of insalubrity.

  An observation of the Meteorological currents for many years past had induced the belief that, unless the temperature be kept down by an abundant fall of rain, the summer of 1865 would prove to. be the point at which the Thermometrical wave would attain its highest altitude, and the greatest amount of insalubrity would, based upon somewhat similar calculations, have nearly coincided with this maximum temperature. Unfortunately the rainfall throughout the year proved to be much below the average-and possibly to this cause may be attributed in no slight degree the appearance of an epidemic, happily as yet almost entirely restricted to the Chinese population, but which has not, as far as I am aware, been hitherto described as occurring in China, if indeed in the Eastern hemisphere.

Small pox appeared as usual in the months of January, February and March, but the mortality did not exceed that of previous years, nor was the number of admissions into Hospital for this disease above the average.

Cholera may be said to have been absent in its epidemic form-although several sudden cases have occurred among the community. The admission of one patient only suffering under this disease is recorded in the Returns of the Government Civil Hospital and two in those of the Seaman's Hospital.

An epidemic however of quite as startling a character was first recognized in Victoria Gaol upon the 3rd of March, when a prisoner, who was said to have cone directly from Macao, was seized with symptoms closely resembling those of Yellow fever. No new case occurred until the 15th of the same month, and during the whole of March there had been 5 cases only, but of these three had terminated fatally. The disease increased rapidly until it attained its acm? on the 2nd of May, on which day there were 46 cases in Hospital, inclusive of 15 admissions on that day. From that period it commenced to decline, but did not entirely disappear until there had been 373 admissions and 40 deaths.

  The disease as it exhibited itself was of the nature of a bilious fever, occurring in the form of the continued, remittent or intermittent type, rapidly passing in all fatal cases into the typhoid, and frequently terminating by hemorrhage from the bowels and in some cases by black vomit. The skin became yellow with an orange tinge, passing into olive, and all the Auids of the body were of a marked yellow. In fatal cases spots of cechymosis over the body were not unfrequent. A detailed account of the pathological changes, as collected by Dr. O'Brien, from the examination of several bodies, I have added in the form of an appendix. As far as I could ascertain the fact the disease proved to be contagious but not infectious and the period of incubation about 10 days. It was undoubtedly a form of Yellow fever.

The disease was not however limited to Victoria Gaol, but prevailed throughout the Town, among the lower classes principally. There are 103 cases recorded as admitted into the Government Civil Hospital, of which no less than 40 died; but it is a little doubtful whether these were all ascertained cases of the epidemic and not in some simply a severe form of bilious fever. Many of the men admitted were nearly or quite moribund when sent to Hospital, and 20 dead bodies were sent there for examination after death, in which the same epidemic had been the active agent. I notice that two cases of Bilious fever were admitted into the Seaman's Hospital, both of which proved fatal. Possibly they may have been cases of the epidemic.

The disease was most easily studied in the Gaol and upon the observation of it, as it there presented itself, I have based these remarks. As I have already said the number of admissions were 373 and the deaths 40, giving a per centage of 10.79 deaths, which after all is not very high for any epidemic, and nothing in comparison to the usual mortality in Cholera. Very few Europeans were attacked, a comparatively small number of Indians and no females were brought under its influence.

It is a curious fact that the British Ship Tricolor left this port for Dutch Guiana on the 2nd of May, when this epidemic was at its worst, with 480 coolies on board, and that upwards of 200 died on the voyage, as far as can be ascertained, from the effects of a somewhat similar epidemic.

Poverty and destitution appeared to be one of the most marked predisposing causes of the disease, and the long drough

In this belief the diet of the prisoners, more

                                              especially of and great heat were probably in some measure the exciting causes. the wretched and most emaciated, was greatly improved by the addition of strong soup made from bullocks' heads; the prisoners were carefully examined every day and at once segregated from their fellows when showing any sign of disease. I foun obstinate constipation generally preceded the outbreak of the fever, a constipation extending from 5 to 15 days and yet it was almost impossible to get the prisoners to admit its existence until brought into Hospital with unmistakeable symptoms of fever upon them.

Duris.

                                       calomel purge. The treatment which I found most successful was the immediate administration of an emetic, followed by a and either quinine or calomel and opium according to the circumstances of the particular case, a hot bath was given when th fever ran high, and blisters to the head and sinapisms to the stomach and feet had frequently to be resorted to. convalescence quinine and beef tea and wine were freely administered. I believe that scarcely a single case terminated fatally where there had been sufficient time to get the gums slightly affected by the mercury.' With these preliminary remarks I sh now proceed to consider the result of the past year's treatment of discase in the various Institutions which come officially my cognizance.

*

uwie

 * As this discase has shown itself again this year and we have already had 105 admissions although only 6 deaths, it may be advisable to request " heads of the Medical Department in the Ariny and Navy to consult with me as to its probable cause and possible means of staying its ravages.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH MARCII, 1866.

I. THE POLICE.

123

    The Police Force of this Colony, with all its disadvantages in the material of which it is composed and the trials to which exposed, is eminently remarkable for one quality: that of its sanitary condition.

       Table I. shews the number of admissions into, and the deaths in, the Hospital, of Members of the Police Force, during every month of 1865.

!

Table II. shews the rate, per cent, of sickness and mortality of the Force during the same year.

Although the average strength of the Force was considerably greater in 1865 than in the preceding year, the mortality as not much increased and still remained very low: 1.96 per cent, while the rate of sickness was only 98.19 per cent, which ot much above that of the previous year. The health of this body of men is mainly attributable to the care which is taken hen, the comfortable quarters in the New Central Station which they now occupy, the sufficient and suitable clothing which applied to them and the monthly inspections they undergo for the detection of venereal disease. I am also glad to be able port that there has been a great diminution in the number of Impostors, feigning disease, to avoid night duty, or punish- ent, admitted into Hospital.

Table III., kindly furnished to me by Dr. Dick, the Principal Military Medical Officer, gives a comparative Return of the alth of the Troops serving in Hongkong, from which it will be seen that the rate of mortality was more than double what it been in 1864 and this Table does not include the great number of deaths which occurred among the invalided soldiers iter leaving Hongkong. It forms no part of my duty to enter into the question of the probable cause of this great difference the health of two bodies of disciplined men, performing somewhat similar duties, I therefore abstain from any comment on bis portion of the subject.

II. THE GOVERNMENT CIVIL HOSPITAL.

Table IV. gives the number of admissions into and the mortality in this Hospital during the year 1865, to which is added the purpose of comparison the average number of admissions and deaths during eight years. By this table it will be seen that the admissions (1357) during the past year have been nearly double the average number.

of

     Table V. gives the rate of mortality in the Civil Hospital, during the past eight years, distinguishing the rate in the case Europeans from Colored persons and Chinese.

Table VI., kindly sent to nie by the Resident Surgeon, Dr. Adams, gives information in reference to the Seaman's Hospital. The rate of mortality shews an improvement in comparison with that of the preceding year; but it is still high, as might have en expected from the temporary and imperfect nature of the accommodation available, for the treatment of patients, until the completion of the new buildings. Although the death rate in the Seaman's Hospital has been below that in the Civil Hospital, it is very much above that of the Europeans and Indians treated in the latter Institution, and with them alone a comparison can fairly be instituted.

        In the Civil Hospital the rate of mortality has been higher than it has been since 1858. But after all this is more apparent than real, for in the case of European patients the rate has been more favorable than during the two preceding years, while in the case of Indians it does not much surpass the average: it is among the Chinese that the great increase of mortality has occurred, and this is owing in part to the number of nearly moribund patients admitted whilst suffering under Yellow fever or starvation, and who, although only a short time under treatment, greatly increase the death rate. Whether it was owing to the great commercial depression of the past year or to the greater facility for poor people reaching Hongkong from China, it is certain that a much larger proportion ultimately came to the Civil Hospital than in former years. Among the two classes of patients just mentioned, namely those suffering from Yellow fever and starvation, there were 49 Chinese who died; this zumber, if deducted from 163, the total number of deaths, would at once reduce the death rate to a little over 9 per cent.

Two Europeans were admitted under the heading of "starvation." The arrangement by which destitute Europeans can now, as for some months past, find shelter and food in the Gael, will I trust enable me to omit this heading for the future in reference w Europeans.

Altogether the result of the last year's treatment in this Institution has been very satisfactory.

III. THE GOAL.

       Table VII. shews the number of admissions into the Gaol Hospital, and deaths there during the year 1865, with the average number of admissions and deaths during eight years, as a means of comparison.

       Table VIII. shews the rate of sickness and mortality in the Gaol Hospital as compared with the total number of prisoners and with the number treated during the year 1865.

       The great mortality of the past year is mainly attributable to the epidemic of Yellow fever which I have already described; from which cause alone there occurred 40 deaths. If these are omitted from the calculation the death rate is at once reduced below the average.

The building is clean, well ventilated and admirably well managed, so as to secure the most satisfactory sanitary condition of the prisoners.

       An important change has been introduced in the mode of punishment adopted for graver crimes among the Chinese. I refer to the public whipping post and the substitution of the "Cat" for the rattan. Having been present and narrowly watched the culprits during most of those public floggings and treated them subsequently in Hospital, I can state without hesitation, that for the majority of adult Chinese the punishment is not such as to affect their liealth, and if the Surgeon in attendance has the power, as at present, to stay the hand of the operator at once, the number of strokes, now administered need not be altered. I desire however to suggest that a better form of whipping post be adopted, to enable the back to be better stretched; and in this manner the man flogging may apply his strokes with more regularity. I would also suggest that where more than two forgings are ordered to be given within six months, the intermediate one be, at the direction of the Surgeon when he considers it necessary, given within the Gaol on the buttocks, instead of on the back and shoulders. The object with which this change is suggested, is to meet the difficulty of getting the skin sufficiently healed within two months, so as to enable the culprit to bar a second flogging, more especially when the men are well aware that they are interested in retarding a cure. Of the salutary effect of the punishment I have nothing to say, but of the dread with which the prisoners view it I can speak confidently.

IV.. THE CONVICT HULK.

Table IX. shews the rate of sickness and mortality, in the Convict Hulk at Stone Cutter's Island, during the past year. The result is not so satisfactory as it was in 1864 which is another proof of the sickly character of the past season. Notwithstanding this the men appear for the most part robust and healthy and are well cared for, while at the same time imprisonment to them is somewhat more than mere detention; as they are really obliged to work.

  It is somewhat remarkable that not a single case of Yellow fever occurred on the island. This is in part no doubi attribut- able to the great care taken in sending prisoners thither to avoid sending any who were likely to convey the disease.

V. THE LOCK HOSPITAL.

  Table X. gives all necessary information in regard to this Institution. The good it does is undoubted; the good it might do were all unlicensed brothels suppressed is incalculable. At present many of the worst cases of infected women escape entirely the beneficial operation of the Ordinance, by removing to unlicensed houses, where they propagate infection without hindrance, to the great injury of the troops and sailors. Greater stringency is required to meet this evil as the prevalence of venereal disease is again becoming the subject of complaint on the part of the Military and Naval Medical authorities. I believe that if any plan can be devised so as to bring the whole of the prostitutes of the Colony under the system of periodical examination, as adopted in regard to the licensed houses, the disease would become nearly unknown here. As it is I am certain that very few cases of disease are contracted in the licensed houses, from their nominal inmates.

  Table XI. is an approximative estimate of the Mortality among Foreign Residents in Hongkong during the last eight years. The data from which it is compiled are furnished to me, so far as the number of Residents is concerned, by the Registrar General, and by the Sextons of the two cemetaries so far as the deaths are concerned. These data however exclude in both cases Military, Naval and Merchant Seanen, as well as those who have been buried from the Hospitals. From this table it appears that the Residents actually died in smaller numbers than in the preceding year. From the manner in which the table is compiled, it is impossible to say positively, whether the amount of sickness as well as the mortality has been less, but I am inclined to believe that it has really been very much greater, and that the actual rate of mortality has only not appeared by reason of the number of invalids who have left the Colony, either in time to recover their health, or to be counted in the death returns of some other place. I believe that it is the opinion of the majority of the medical practitioners here, that no such sickly year as the past, has been experienced since 1858.

  Table XII. gives the usual information regarding the work performfed by the Inspector of Nuisances attached to this Department.

Table XIII. shews the annual mean state of the atmosphere during the year 1865, as recorded at the Government Civil Hospital.

APPENDIX.

J. I. MURRAY, M.D., Colonial Surgeon.

Post Mortem Examination of bodies of Prisoners who died of yellow fever.

(Skin, conjunctiva and cartilages of ribs, &c., of greenish yellow hue.

In one instance only was there any attempt at coagulation: it consisted in a small clot in the left ventricle. In every case the spleen was very much distended (in one weighing 28 ounces). Diaphragmatic surface

of liver generally of a mottled appearance, and sometimes coated with reddish serum.

Surface of kidneys at times very vascular. Mucous membrance of stomach near pylorus generally intensely congested, and in many cases studded with spots of blood. The heart in one instance had several spots of blood on its surface. A slight turg escence of blood in the brain in one instance. Liver much increased in size and but little in weight. The substance pale and presenting numerous oil globules under the microscope. The gall bladder always contained bile of a very liquid character.

This fluid resembled that contained in the gall bladder, but was much more viscil.

In one instance there was a similar fluid in the colon, and in the same case there was about four ounces of chocolate colored urine in the bladder.

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 12th February, 1866. SIR.I have the honour of presenting to you the Annual Report on the Government Schools in this Colony for the Year 1805.

In reporting on the Central School it unfortunately happens that I have to review the principal part of my own duties. My report, in this respect, will not therefore, assume the form it would have done had I been differently situated.

      The instruction given in the School, I need hardly state, still of an elementary character. Nothing has yet been empted beyond the most common branches of an English education as taught in the National Schools at home.

The School-books used are those of the Commissioners for National Education in Ireland. Complaints are not unfre- ntly made at home against the series, and graver objections might be made to their suitability for the Chinese; but, with their faults, it would be difficult to find others which could advantageously be substituted for them. To have proper Mool-books would entail the necessity of compiling a series for the special use of the School. The modes of life and the s of thought in the West are so different from those that prevail in the East that a lesson which would be simplicity itself a class of English children is beset with numberless difficulties to a class of Chinese-difficulties, too, which tax all the Powers of the teacher to obviate or explain.

As to the progress of the boys I have every reason to be satisfied. Up to a certain period it is, in fact, remarkable. During two or three first years of their stay at School they advance rapidly in reading, spelling, writing, and the simpler rules of Ahmetic. After that, progress is not so marked; and, out of a class of thirty, not more than five or six, perhaps, attain great degree of proficiency in those subjects which depend more on the independent exercise of their own intellectual ties than those just referred to.

Translation and Composition are subjects of considerable difficulty, arising from the great disparity between the English the Chinese idiom. The first or highest class have translated into English Esop's Fables, by Thoin, and the First Book Mencius. If a stranger were to examine them on these books he would at first he struck with the translation, but more te enquiry would show him that memory had been cultivated at the expense of judgment; and, if he were to set them a ge they had not previously read, he would immediately discover where the weak point lay. Nothing seems, at first sight,

more satisfactory than the work of revision with the Chinese; for, when the correct translation has once been given them they rarely forget it; but, if teacher or scholars were to rely on this as an evidence of progress nothing could be more fallacious. Much of the blame which attaches to this is due to their previous training. The Chinese have no education in the real senso, of the word. No attempt is made at a simultaneous development of the mental powers. These are all sacrificed to the enli vation of memory. The boy who can repeat correctly the writings of Confucius and Mencius is considered a great scholar although he may be as ignorant of their meaning as if they were written in a language of which he did not know the alphabet. If docility and regular attendance are necessary to progress there is nothing left on these points to desire. Nothing can be easier than the maintenance of proper discipline, and the daily attendance will bear favourable comparison with that of any day-school in England. With the exception of a few weeks last summer, during which sickness was prevalent among the Chinese, there are seldom more than two absentees a day. Such regularity in a School of nearly two hundred dered as perfect as it is possible for attendance to be.

may

be consi-

The Scheme proposed by J. J. Mackenzie, Esq., and sanctioned by the late Board of Education, is now followed as closely as circumstances will permit. In another year there will be nothing to interfere with its operation.

You are aware that this Scheme altered the original constitution of the School. It was, henceforth, to be no longer optional for a boy to learn English. Previously, he could read Chinese, or English, or both if he chose; and this accounts for the high average of attendance in 1862, the year in which the School was opened. As none were, in future, to be admitted except those who wished to study English the first step necessary was to reduce the numbers--the staff of teachers being then inadequate for the proper instruction of so many.

To secure that attention to Chinese studies which are no apt to be neglected by those who learn English, an Entrouce Examination, on the more commonly used elementary books, was made compulsory. Boys who passed this examination were to be admitted into the School to read Chinese for a year, after which, on a second examination, they were to be admitted into the English classes. They were then to devote four hours a day to English and four to Chinese.

It took some time before this Preparatory Class could be got into such a state of efficiency as to supply the English classes. The standard of Chinese among applicants for admission was so low that many more had to be rejected than could With 3 be admitted, and many of those who did pass were unwilling to remain unless they were taught English at once. little firmness, difficulties of this description were overcome; and now, when it is understood that the examination is a reality and not a name, boys willingly conform to the regulation. Few, and in a short time, noue will be admitted to the Eaghsh Without it, it classes who do not remain the stated time in the Preparatory Class. The wisdom of this measure is evident. would be difficult, if not impossible, for the boys to acquire that knowledge of their own language which is so necessary for the acquisition of another..

The English School is divided into two Sections, of three classes each--the Upper and the Lower. The latter is under the care of Mr. Willcocks, the Assistant Master, and the former is under my own immediate superintendence. Here, also, pro- motion to a higher class is regulated by examination.

To enable this Scheme to compass the end at which it aims it would be desirable that the boys should remain for the period of seven years which it implies; that is to say, one year in the Preparatory Class, and one year in each of the six English classes. In shorter time than that it is hardly possible to reach a standard of scholarship which would confer lasting good on the boys themselves or raise the character of the School. With a shorter course of study I should despair of getting beyond the present elementary instruction.

At present, two obstacles to a lengthened attendance operate unfavourably on the School. In the first place, there is such a demand for English-speaking Chinese that many of the boys leave as soon as they can perform the duties of compositore or copying clerks; and, secondly, the majority are so poor that they are glad to avail themselves of any situation which offers them the means of subsistence.

This state of things will work its own cure here as it did in India. Mere smatterers in English will soon become too numerous for the demand, and those only who have made some solid attainments in the language will be sought after aud employed.
