Submarine jets, apparently of steam, were observed on October 6th, 10 miles N.E. of Cape Diamond near Simoda, about 2 miles off the land. They rose to the height of 20 feet.

Redfield Rocks, [p. 462.] As little as 12 fathoms were found when passing along the west side of these rocks, about equi-distant from either group; therefore it is not correctly stated that the water deepens as they are approached. At half- a-mile from the South and principal cluster are soundings of 20 fathoms, rock. The flat rock also is connected with the South rocks and lies close to them.

Lady Inglis Rocks.-In a south-wester, good shelter may be obtained under the lee of Omae-saki in 7 to 4 fathoms, but not closer in. A vessel may pass inside the reef by giving the shore a berth of a mile. This reef quite covers at high water and does not always break. An iron perch or beacon should be erected on it.

From YOKOHAMA to the WESTWARD.

Directions. After passing Rock Island, take an inshore passage, steering to pass well outside Omae-saki, and thence towards Kii no oosima, but take the greatest precaution to give a wide berth to the dange.ous reefs off Xima, if passing at night. The Serpent carried a favorable current the whole way in October.

KII CHANNEL, &c.

Tanabe has proved at times a convenient anchorage, the usual position for anchoring being south of the Daimio's residence, but better shelter in westerly winds would be found N.E. of the Binzli reef. Two sunken rocks have lately been discovered in the fairway to the above anchorage, one of 22 feet water is S. 6 E. 4 cables from the islet off Maruyama point; the other with 15 feet is, S. 30° E. at the same distance. To anchor :-Stand in for the green earthwork east of the white wall of the Daimio's residence bearing E.N.E. till Ebisima shuts in with Marayuma islet; then keep East and anchor in 6 to 4 fathoms. The low rock of Binzli always shews.

Akasi Strait to Hiago, [p. 491.] A shoal, having 20 feet water on it, is said to exist about a mile south of Mieco on the Nipon shore. The Serpent obtained 10 fathoms on the spot marked on the chart by a Japanese naval officer, although it appeared very shoal from the extreme discoloration of the water in a heavy tide rip, caused by the ebb stream being deflected from the shore after sweeping out of the Akasi bight. There is very probably a shoal nearer the coast, formed by the addy.

   Standing on towards Hiogo there are not less than 9 fathoms at a mile off shore; and Hiogo point, which is low and has a round gray tower at its extremity, may be rounded at one or two cables.

It

  Skenesi or Ose Bank, [p. 490,] Not less than 6 fathoms could be found on this bank when thoroughly examined. is of course sand. The fishermen would not admit the existence of any bank having less than 7 fathoms.

  Hosedasinose Bank extends 2 miles off the shore of Awadji, 3 miles north of Morotzu. There is said to be only 3 fathoms on its edge.

Skanose or Great Shoal, [p. 490,] is probably not nearly so extensive as shown on the Chart The Serpent passed over the centre of it, 6 miles within the spit, in 11 fathoms, sand, but the southern edge in 13 to 18 fathoms was found to be rock. A good leading mark for passing between the banks is the Hiogo range just open of Yesaki, the north point of Awadji.

Oki-sima, [p. 489,] in long. 134° 1, is high and none of the islands about it are low as stated in the China Pilot. Tomo-sima is high also, and affords good anchorage in 5 or 6 fathoms on its S.W. side, with Yosino bluff just open of its south point.

ST. VINCENT CHANNEL.

  The Commander-in-Chief having ordered a survey of the channels about the Conqueror Bank, one has been discovered by which the heaviest ships can pass at all times. It is quite direct and carries not less than 7 fathoms at low water, springs. Some dangers exist on its borders, but they are easily avoided by steering a mid-channel, course. The tides being stronge in this channel, there is some advantage in taking it, when the tide is favorable.

  Three Islet Spit.-A narrow bank of gravel extends from the three rocky islets towards Siyako. Its Spit may be crossed in 10 fathoms by keeping Kodutsi one breadth open of the small round island off the South point of Yosima (not marked in the Chart.)

Rocks which dry towards low water extend one cable off the North point of Usisima. They are steep to.

Siyako Ledge.-A rocky ledge extends 3 cables off the South point of Siyako, at the outer part of which is a rock of less than 10 feet water. Giving the island a berth of half-a-mile, or pasing outside the tide rip or heavy overfall generally seen there, will clear it.

Hirosima, South Bank is very steep to. It lies between Kosima or Round island and Hirosima, projecting somewhat into the channel. For which reason it is preferable to pass South of 10 feet Rock. Parts of the bank are nearly dry.

Ten feet Rock, so named, is 20 feet high and whitened. It may be passed quite safely on either side at 2 cables or less. Tides. It is high water, full and change, at Hirosima, at 11 h. 45 m. rise and fall at springs 11 feet; neaps rise 8 feet. The streams run regularly six hours each way, the flood coming in from the east, and the changes take place about an hour before the end of the tide. The tides have great regularity. The meeting of the tides from the Kii and Boungo Channels takes place in the Bingonada, west of Akenes. Misaki.

Directions.-Stand on E.N.E. between Nezumi and Sayanagi, passing nearer to Nezumi, and when hetween Kosima (Round island) and Takami steer about E. by N. for 10 feet rock which may be passed on either hand at 2 cables, but on the South in preference on account of Hirosima South Bank, continue about E. by N. for the north part of Usisima (Saddle island) hauling up mid-channel through the passage north of it, to avoid the Rocks off its point. Then steer along Siyako for the north point of Yosima hauling up E. by S. with Kodutsi a little open of the island off Yosima, and pass mid-channel between it and the Three Rocks or islets

  From the Eastmard:-Bass mid-channel north of the three rocky islets and haul up W. by N. till Kodutsi is one breadth open, then keep S. W. by W. along the shore of Siyako maintaining a mid-channel course between it and Usisima. When 10 feet rock comes mid-way between Round island and Takami steer for it, but pass 2 cables South of it. Pass 2 cables north

of Takami and half a mile north of Nezi, the summit of Hirosima kept mid-way between Round island and Takami leading through in the best water, viz.: 7 fathoms.

Vessels of small daught may disregard these particular directions, steering a mid-channel course by eye. Anchorage may

               Inoura, the south east bay of Hirosima in 9 to 4 fathoms; the water shoals rather suddenly at the edge of the channel Also in 7 to 5 fathoms between Takami north point and Nezumi Sima; on Three Islets Spit in 7 to 5 fathoms, gravel; and within a mile East of Usisima in the same depths.

KURUSIMA SETO.

Southern Route, (p. 488). The name of this is Kurusima Seto or Strait of Kurusima. A more particular examination of it than was inade in 1861 has been rendered necessary in consequence of numerous reports of the difficulty of its navigation by strangers.

A singularly clear atmosphere and great mirage are very prevalent at this part of the Sea, and when under these circumstances the sun is shining on the islands, they blend with the mainland, and the passage is not then readily detected on approach.

Cape lyo is a long promontory of undulating hills rising gradually from the point to no great elevation. Half-a-mile north-west of it is a grassy island 20 feet high, and 3 cables outside the islet, a low reef which never covers. rocks above water.

There are other

   Kosima being well cultivated contrasts well with the barren hills of Osima at the back. It has also a clump of trees on the western part of its double summit.

The White-topped Rock (p. 486,) is half a mile W. by S. of the South point of Masima, and the ground southward of it towards the village of Obama is rocky and uneven as far as a rock, awash at low water, which lies 3 cables from the shore and is 6 cables S. S. W. of Masima. There is chow-chow water even outside this which it would be prudent also to avoid.

   Directions (p. 480). When passing Cape Iyo the western or Junk channel will be seen open. Proceel E. S. E. and round Kosima (thus opening the strait) at 3 or 4 cables till the course is S. S. W., changing to South when passing the west point of Masima at 2 cables. After rounding the South point of Masima at 3 cabies, steer S. E. by E. and giving the islets off Osima a good berth, haul up E. N. E. Easterly through the Bingo nada.

There is much clow-chow water in the strait, especially off Kosima on the flood; a mid-channel course will avoid that which appears dangerous.

From the Eastward:-After rounding the islets off Osima the western or Junk channel only will be seen open: steer N. W. by W. for (or to the right of) the White topped Rock and haul up North between it and Masima. west point of Masima keep a mid-channel or N. N. E. course and round Kosima at half a mile.

After passing the

   Anchorage may be obtained off Imaharu; also off the South end of the village of Obama, one mile north of Imaharu, in 6 to 9 fathoms.

   Tides. It is high water, full and change, at 11 h.; springs rise 10 feet. The flood here comes in from the westward. Both streams run with great velocity in the strait at springs; at neaps about 4 knots.

IYO NADA,

   Iyo Nana. [p. 485.] Keep to the route recommended; it is the best passage, and no time is saved by passing North of Nukusira where the tides are very perplexing, specially with a vessel under canvas.

SIMONOSEKI STRAIT.

   Tano Pank._[p. 482.] A better leading mark for passing between the Tano Bank and the Kanabuse Rock is—a large clump of trees on Takas.ki, the South point of Simonoseki town, in line with the high water of Mozi point. The so-called Custom house is seldom to be recognized.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 12TH JANUARY, 1867.

Middle Ground.—There is a 2 fathoms patch on the South-eastern part of this shoal not laid down on the chart; and a cluster of dangerous rocks, called Takaba, is reported to lie between it and Kanabuse rock.

Buoy.--If a buoy be placed in this vicinity, it will be at the southern edge of the Middle Channel, north of Barruse Shoal, the channel here for vessels of heavy draught being only 2 cables broad at low water, and the course through it East.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

D. ERSKINE, Colonial Secretary.

  A Lighthouse has been erected on the Bluff at the south side of the entrance of Port Ne above high water, a light from which will be exhibited on the 23rd January, 1867.

at an elevation of 292 feet

The Lighthouse is in Latitude 29° 52′ 50′′ S., and Longitude 31° 3′ 35′′ E. The building is an iron tower, in the form of a frustrum of a cone, 81 feet high,inted white; centre of light being 70 feet above the base, exhibiting a revolving white light of the second class (dioptric), aming its greatest brilliancy once every minute.

It is visible in all directions from North (round by East and South), to S. 59° W.; and can be seen from a ship's deck 24 miles in clear weather.

The above light is not visible from the Aliwal Shoal, which is 25 miles S., 53° W., from the Lighthouse: Vessels should not, therefore, when coming from the southward and westward, approach the shore nearer than 4 miles, or shoal their water under 40 fathoms, using the lead freely until they make the light well out from the deck, when they may stand in until it bears N. 59° E.,-which bearing will keep them outside all known danger-until they are abreast of the Umlazi River (about 9 miles below the Lighthouse), when they must keep it more to the northward, as the land trends more to the eastward, giving the shore a good berth of a mile, and when the light bears about E.N.E., they can haul in to the northward for the anchorage: anchoring in 83 to 10 fathoms, with the Lighthouse bearing S. W. to S.W. S., distant 1 mile.

GOVERNMENT NOTICE No. 122, 1866.

  His Excellency the Administrator of the Government directs the publication, for geners information, of the following Notice of the Erection of a Light-house on the Bluff at the south side of the entrance of Port Natal.

By His Excellency's command,

Colonial Office, Natal, October 20th, 1866.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

D. ERSKINE, Colonial Secretary.

  A Lighthouse has been erected on the Bluff at the south side of the entrance of Port Ne above high water, a light from which will be exhibited on the 23rd January, 1867.

at an elevation of 292 feet

The Lighthouse is in Latitude 29° 52′ 50′′ S., and Longitude 31° 3′ 35′′ E. The building is an iron tower, in the form of a frustrum of a cone, 81 feet high,inted white; centre of light being 70 feet above the base, exhibiting a revolving white light of the second class (dioptric), aming its greatest brilliancy once every minute.

It is visible in all directions from North (round by East and South), to S. 59° W.; and can be seen from a ship's deck 24 miles in clear weather.

The above light is not visible from the Aliwal Shoal, which is 25 miles S., 53° W., from the Lighthouse: Vessels should not, therefore, when coming from the southward and westward, approach the shore nearer than 4 miles, or shoal their water under 40 fathoms, using the lead freely until they make the light well out from the deck, when they may stand in until it bears N. 59° E.,-which bearing will keep them outside all known danger-until they are abreast of the Umlazi River (about 9 miles below the Lighthouse), when they must keep it more to the northward, as the land trends more to the eastward, giving the shore a good berth of a mile, and when the light bears about E.N.E., they can haul in to the northward for the anchorage: anchoring in 83 to 10 fathoms, with the Lighthouse bearing S. W. to S.W. S., distant 1 mile.

No. 16.

The following Copy of an Order in Council, extending to the Subjects of the Kings of Siam the provisions of the Foreign Deserters' Act, 1852, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 23rd January, 1867.

At the Court at Windsor, the 10th day of November, 1866.

PRESENT,

The QUEEN'S Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

WHEREAS by the "Foreign Deserters' Act, 1852," it is provided, that whenever it is made to appear to Her Majesty that due facilities are or will be given for recovering or apprehending seamen who desert from British merchant-ships in the territories of any Foreign Power, Her Majesty may, by Order in Council, stating that such facilities are or will be given, declare that seamen, not being slaves, who desert from merchant-ships belonging to such Powers, when within Her Majesty's dominions, shall be liable to be apprehended and carried on board their respective ships, and may limit the operation of such Order, and may render the operation thereof subject to such conditions and qualifications, if any, as may be deemed expedient; and whereas it has been made to appear to Her Majesty, that due facilities are given for recovering and apprehending seamen who desert from British merchant-ships in the territories of their Majesties the Kings of Siam;

Now, therefore, Her Majesty, by virtue of the powers, vested in her by the said "Foreign Deserters' Act, 1852," and hy and with the advice of Her Privy Council, is pleased to order and declare, and it is hereby ordered and declared, that, from and after the publication hereof in the London Gazette, seamen, not being slaves, who, within Her Majesty's dominions, desert from merchant-ships belonging to the Kingdom of Siam, shall be liable to be apprehended and carried on board their respective ships:

Provided always, that if any such deserter has committed any crime in Her Majesty's dominions he may be detained until he has been tried by a competent Court, and until his sentence (if any) has been fully carried into effect.

  And the Lords Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury, the Right Honourable the Earl of Carnarvon, the Right Honourable Viscount Cranbourne, and the Right Honourable Spencer Horatio Walpole, three of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.

(Signed)

EDMUND HARRISON.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

His Excellency SIR RICHARD GRAVES MACDONNELL having reason to think, that many Chinese labor under a mistaken notion that they cannot apply direct to the Registrar General, who is also Protector of the Chinese, when they have any grievance to redress or petition to present, reminds them that the office of the Registrar General is always open to the Chinese, and that Officer is most ready and willing to forward petitions to the GOVERNOR and to hear statements made to him by Chinese. Neither the Registrar General nor the GOVERNOR will send replies to any communication not signed by the actual petitioner, nor will such replies be sent to any party but the petitioner himself. It is the wish of the GOVERNOR, as it is the interest also of the Chinese, that the latter should avail themselves, as far as possible, of the means afforded by Government, for enabling them to communicate directly with the Registrar General, and His Excellency hopes they will see the advantage of so doing.

By Command,

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

His Excellency SIR RICHARD GRAVES MACDONNELL having reason to think, that many Chinese labor under a mistaken notion that they cannot apply direct to the Registrar General, who is also Protector of the Chinese, when they have any grievance to redress or petition to present, reminds them that the office of the Registrar General is always open to the Chinese, and that Officer is most ready and willing to forward petitions to the GOVERNOR and to hear statements made to him by Chinese. Neither the Registrar General nor the GOVERNOR will send replies to any communication not signed by the actual petitioner, nor will such replies be sent to any party but the petitioner himself. It is the wish of the GOVERNOR, as it is the interest also of the Chinese, that the latter should avail themselves, as far as possible, of the means afforded by Government, for enabling them to communicate, directly with the Registrar General, and His Excellency hopes they will see the advantage of so doing.

These will be followed by a series of Tables giving in a condensed form an estimate of the extent to which the Chinese community have availed themselves of the Government Scheme of educa- tion during the five years of my connexion with the schools.

THE CENTRAL SCHOOL.

   From the peculiar position which I occupy with respect to this school I am unable to enter with minuteness into, or to speak with impartiality of, its merits, defects, discipline, in short, all that is connected with the system which has been adopted and the mode in which it is carried out. I must therefore confine myself to a few particulars more in the form of statistics than in that of an opinion as to the actual state of the school.

   The subjects taught are substantially the same as they were last year. The Irish National School Books and the Trans- lation into English of portions of the Chinese Classics form, with the ordinary branches of all National Schemes of education, the sum and substance of the work. Nothing higher has, as yet, been attempted for two very obvious reasons. In the first place, the boys are, ipso facto, dependent on the English Masters for all their instruction. The Chinese Assistants are not competent, even under the closest supervision, to do more than teach the most elementary of the subjects. Reading, Translation, Composition, Geography, and all beyond the simplest rules of Arithmetic if not attended to personally by the English Masters had much better not be attempted at all. When it is considered that last year the scholars in the Upper School numbered eighty six and in the Lower School ninety six it becomes very evident that there is little time left for going on to the more advanced subjects of History, Algebra, and Geometry. The great aim hitherto has been to push on the more intelligent of the boys only as far as shall not be inconsistent with all, except the incorrigible, obtaining a fair average amount of instruction, in other words, not to neglect the many for the benefit of the few; and, until the services of another English Master have been obtained, I see little hope of much more being done. Then, in the second place, when the boys reach that stage in their progress when they would be capable of appreciating, and profiting by, a more advanced course of instruction they leave school for situations in which they can turn their knowledge of English to practical account. They have not yet learned to consider education an aim in itself. It is, at present, but a means to a particular end, and the minimum amount that can serve their purpose is all that they seek for.

As the year drew to a close I began to fear that the increased size of the classes would be found to have operated preju- dicially on the general efficiency of the school. The results, however, of the examinations which have just been held have to a certain extent proved that these fears were groundless. Of the total value of the papers set to the first class only two failed to reach the minimum of one third which may be allowed as a fair standard for passing. Two failed in the second class and four in the third. Thus, of the sixty nine examined in the Upper School eight would have failed had the examinations been held for any other purpose beyond that of testing how far master and scholar had succeeded, the one in imparting, the other in receiving, the instruction given during the year. Nearly equal results were obtained in the Lower School where it may be a question whether written examinations are not too severe a test considering the age of the boys and the short time they have been at school..

In my last Report I stated that I entertained the hope of being soon able to overcome many difficulties connected with the school by training Chinese Assistants for their work. I then anticipated that I should always be able to retain two of the more advanced boys for a period of at least four years, after which they might, if they chose, find employment elsewhere and be succeeded by the two who stood next to them. This project has all but failed. The demand for the services of the more intelligent of the boys is so great that it is, in the meantime, hopeless to expect them to remain for any length of time. The two in whose case the experiment was tried have both left many months ago. Their place has been filled by others, but these will doubtless leave also, just when they are beginning to be of real service to the school. I shall not, however, abandon the scheme. Out of several it may be possible to retain some; and, as the knowledge of English becomes more general and situations therefore more difficult to be obtained, the greater will be the probability that these Assistants will remain until, at least, others are fully qualified to take their place.

His Excellency the Governor has signified his intention of extending the course of study by the introduction of Lectures on the simpler elements of Science,Chemistry, Electricity, and other branches of Natural Philosophy. I trust that, at first, only very moderate expectations will be entertained of their success. Considerable difficulty must attend the communication of a knowledge of these subjects through the medium of a language in which the scholars are but in their first stages of advancement, and for the ordinary nomenclature of which there exist, as yet, no equivalents in Chinese. To this must be added the fact already referred to that the boys leave school by far too early for acquiring a taste for such studies. It must not be supposed that I am throwing difficulties in the way or attempting to exaggerate those that confessedly exist. In every school, where it is possible, more attention should be given to such subjects than is generally done, and the Central School should certainly not be content to remain in ignorance of such branches of knowledge considering the advantages that would arise from their diffusion. I have thought it right, however, in making reference to the proposal to mod?rate as far as possible any undue expectations of success. I hope that, at first, the amusement to be derived from the Lectures will be considered as not the least essential reason for their introduction, and all that it is possible to do shall be done to make them, in time, pro- fitable sources of instruction as well.

Would the Revenue of the Colony permit of it I would recommend most strongly the appointment of another English Master not only for reasons already given but for the additional one that a class could then be formed of boys whose parents are able to pay a higher scale of fees for a higher grade of instruction than can be given under present circumstances. There are several boys now in the school who could advance to Algebra, Geometry, and kindred studies could it be found possible to devote time to them, but the time thus spent would have to be taken from more elementary cubjects to the detriment of the present average proficiency of the school. For these reasons I cannot hold out hopes of much higher than present results so long as present circumstances remain as they are.

I am glad that it has at last been decided that the school is to be no longer exclusively confined to the Chinese, as this will be the first step to a more general extension of education to other and equally deserving portions of the community. How the amalgamation of the different races in one school will be found to succeed if advantage of the privilege is taken to any great extent no one can at present undertake to say. It will not be without difficulties, perhaps serious ones, but these must be encountered not only for the sake of many children in the Colony who are without the means of instruction and who, unlike their Chinese neighbours, would be very glad to avail themselves of such advantages, but also for the sake of the repu tation of the Government whose duty as well as interest it is to dispense its gifts with perfect impartiality. I am only afraid that when the announcement has been made public the alacrity with which it will be responded to may be attended with serious embarrassment. That it will lead ultimately to the establishment of another school, both from the number of applica- tions and from differences that will be found necessary in the system of teaching, I do not think there can be a doubt; and, that the public education of the Colony should tend to this result, all its well wishers must be gratified to find.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 9TH FEBRUARY, 1867.

I have not yet been able to get the Chinese department into the satisfactory state in which I could wish to see it. The inability of the Masters to comprehend a system of teaching that differs from their own, and, it may be, their tacit opposition. to any change that is proposed, from their knowledge of my comparative ignorance of what a Chinese education really is, doubtless go far to retard the efficiency of this part of the work. Improvement is appearing although slowly, and it is to be hoped that ere long this duty will be not less carefully performed than the others. There seem to be grave doubts in the minds of many as to the propriety or necessity of devoting the half of the boys' time to the study of their own language. For myself I have none.. I hold it to be an axiom that a boy cannot be taught a foreign language without a knowledge of his own, unless, indeed, he is sent to the country where the language is spoken, and that his progress in the one will be in proportion to his attainments in the other. Chinese is not studied at the Central School so much for the sake of making the boys acquainted with what their sages have written as that they may master as far as possible the language as a language, in the investigation of its elements, and in the construction of its parts. I know of no more humiliating spectacle than to see boys, as we frequently do in Hongkong, who know English much better than they do Chinese, who entirely neglect their own language when they begin to learn the other, and who when asked for the translation of a letter or a petition fail to render it intelligibly. If there is anything which ought to be aimed at in connexion with the School it is that this disgrace shall not attach to it.

   The payment of fees has not proved the slightest drawback to the school. The sum paid into the Treasury during last year amounted to $1,231.97. I had it in contemplation to propose the raising of the fee in the Lower School this year, but, on consideration, I think it would be advisable, in the present rather unsettled state of the minds of the Chinese, to make no change for at least six months. As a rule, the parents of the boys are not in very prosperous circumstances, and hence any additional tax on their resources would not be likely to be well received. As soon, however, as trade revives among the Chinese and the Colony regains its previous status I shall propose the increasing of the fee. To do so in the meantime would be highly impolitic, and this conclusion has not been arrived at without consideration and enquiry.

   I think it but right in concluding this part of my Report to take the opportunity of recording my sense of the obligations under which the school lies to C. C. Smith, Esquire, Registrar General, for the handsome contribution he put into my hands in order to increase the Prize Fund. In the present, comparatively speaking, infant state of the school any encouragement of this nature is invaluable, and I need scarcely say that I wish it were more common.

THE VILLAGE SCHOOLS.

   I shall not enter, at any length, into this part of my Report as, on consideration, I find that it would involve the repetition of a great deal of what was stated last year. An attempt was then made to show what these schools are, how they are conducted, and the nature of the instruction of which they are made the vehicle. In all these respects they continue as they were. They are simply schools where the villagers can obtain for their children, free of all cost, such an education as would be given to them in any native school in China, and, although this may be very barren of what we consider as the necessary elements of any education that is worth the name, it is not to be supposed that it is useless. It is founded on principles which are strictly moral, which have minute reference to all the relations of life, and which have sustained, from centuries before Europe was civilized to the present day, the whole fabric of Chinese polity and manners. It, at least, deserves to be maintained until the Colony is in a position to substitute something better in its stead. This is not intended as a defence of a Chinese education but merely a statement of the grounds on which the Government bases its present relations with these schools.

   I have, in conclusion, to refer you to the following Tables for all statistical information.—I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

FREDERICK STEWART, Head Master and Inspector.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

  At the request of the Government of Mauritius the following Notice, announcing the intention of exhibiting, from the 24th May next, at the entrance of Port Louis Harbor, a Floating Light, instead of the present Harbor Lights, is published for the information of Mariners and others whom it may

concern.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 6th February, 1867.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

NOTICE.

  On the 24th of May 1867, the Harbour Lights at the Entrance of Port Louis, Mauritius, will be done away with, Floating Light at the Bell Buoy Anchorage will be substituted.

and

a

  The Floating Light Vessel will be moored a little to the N. Wrd. of the present well known Bell Buoy, with the following bearings:

Extreme of land to the Northward: N.E.?N.

Extreme of land to the Westward: W.S.W.

Flagstaff on Fort George S.ES.

Depth of Water: 15 fathoms.

The Light Vessel will be painted white, which will enable her to be distinctly seen against the dark land during the day. She will shew a "flashing white Light" from Sunset to Sunrise, which will be visible a distance of 9 miles in every direction from Seaward, from the poop of a large vessel.

  The fact of this being a flashing Light, at short intervals, will sufficiently distinguish it from the Revolving Light at Flat Island, even were a mistake possible.

Vessels from the Northward, after rounding Cannonier Point, must be careful not to bring Cannonier Point Light to the Westward of Flat Island Light, till the Floating Light at the Bell Buoy is seen; they may then steer for the latter, on a S.S.W.W. bearing, and anchor on that bearing, from a mile to a mile from the Light.

  Vessels approaching the Point from the Westward, may steer for the Floating Light on an E.bN.IN. bearing, and either anchora mile from her on that bearing, or further to the Northward as convenient.

The Mooring Chain of the Floating Light runs about 150 fathoms in a N.N.W. direction, Vessels must therefore be anchored in such a manner as to avoid hooking it.

The depths at the anchorage vary from 12 to 20 fathoms.

All the bearings are Compass bearings.

His Excellency SIR RICHARD GRAVES MACDONNELL having reason to think, that many Chinese labor under a mistaken notion that they cannot apply direct to the Registrar General, who is also Protector of the Chinese, when they have any grievance to redress or petition to present, reminds them that the office of the Registrar General is always open to the Chinese, and that Officer is most ready and willing to forward petitions to the GOVERNOR and to hear statements made to him by Chinese. Neither the Registrar General nor the GOVERNOR will send replies to any communication not signed by the actual petitioner, nor will such replies be sent to any party but the petitioner himself. It is the wish of the GOVERNOR, as it is the interest also of the Chinese, that the latter should avail themselves, as far as possible, of the means afforded by Government, for enabling them to communicate directly with the Registrar General, and His Excellency hopes they will see the advantage of so doing.

It is hereby notified by His Excellency The GOVERNOR, in accordance with instructions received from The Right Honorable The EARL OF CARNARVON, Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies, that the Prussian Ambassador has made known to Lord STANLEY, that in consequence of the Union with the Prussian Monarchy of the Kingdom of Hanover, of the Electorate of Hesse, and of the Free State of Frankfort-on-the-Maine, the Consular Posts of the aforesaid Countries are abolished, and united with the Prussian Consular Service.

By Order,

W. T. MERCER,

Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 13th February, 1867.

No. 29.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

   The following Decision of the Marine Court of Inquiry into the charges brought by the Crew of the British Barque Moldavian against JOHN JOBSON, Chief Mate of the said Vessel, is published for general information.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 15th February, 1867.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

FINDING.

The Court having considered the evidence adduced conclude:

   First. That JOHN JOBSON, only Mate, the number of whose Certificate of Competency is 31,602, did violently assault JOSEPH MEADOWs, able Seaman of the Moldavian at Swatow on the 21st December last, and that the assault was unprovoked. Second. That JOHN JOBSON did violently assault WILLIAM JOBLIN, Carpenter, and GEORGE LUNEBURG, 2nd Mate and Boatswain when in the Woosung River on the 3rd instant:-in the case of JOBLIN there was some provocation, but not sufficient to justify the Mate committing the assault he did-in the case of LUNEBURG there was no provocation. Third.-JOHN JOBSON appears to have struck other men, but the assaults were not of a serious nature.

We therefore adjudge that the Certificate of JOHN JOBSON be suspended for three months.

   The Court is of opinion that the Master is deserving of censure for not having preserved proper discipline on board his ship.

Given under our hands at Hongkong, this 12th day of February, 1867.

W. H. RENNIE, Acting Police Magistrate. H. G. THOMSETT, R.N., Harbor Master, &c. FRANCIS PARRY, Unofficial Justice of the Peace. CHAS. VINCENT, Government Marine Surveyor. A. OVERBURY, Master, Mercantile Marine.

VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF HONGKONG.

No. 13 of 1866.

WEDNESDAY, 5TH SEPTEMBER, 1866.

PRESENT:

His Excellency Governor SIR RICHARD GRAVES MACDONNELL, C.B. The Honorable the Aeting Chief Justice (HENRY JOHN BALL.) The Honorable the Acting Colonial Secretary (W. H. RENNIE.) The Honorable the Attorney General (JULIAN Pauncefote.) The Honorable the Colonial Treasurer (F. H. A. FORTH.) The Honorable JAMES WHITTALL.

The Honorable JOHN DENT.

The Honorable H. B. GIBB.

The Honorable W. T. MERCER, on leave.

ABSENT:

The Council meets this day at half past 3 o'clock, pursuant to postponement as ordered by His Excellency The Governor,-no Meeting having taken place on the 31st ultimo, or on the previous day to which the Council was originally adjourned.

The Minutes of the Council held on the 22nd ultimo, being read and confirmed,-

A Protest of the un-official Members of the Council against the Stamp Bill is brought forward; and

the same having been read, is ordered to be entered on the Minutes as follows; namely:-

PROTEST OF THE NON-OFFICIAL MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

  Under the privilege accorded to us by Rule 15 of the General Rules for the Legislative Council of Hongkong, We beg to protest against the Stamp Ordinance being passed, or promulgated, on the following grounds:

1st.-That the expenditure proposed in the Estimates for 1867 would be covered by the existing Revenue, were it not for the absorption of so large a portion of it by the Military Contribution; and as the latter amount has to be voted yearly, it is clearly open to consideration at each recurring period. This Contribution was originally exacted against the recommendation of the then Governor, the Protest of the Majority of the Legislative Council, and the unanimous remonstrance of the whole Community; and the two principal reasons for such a demand upon the Colony, were: 1stly, an apparent surplus Revenue which in fact never existed, and 2ndly., an expected profit from the Mint which expectation was equally groundless. Since the first exaction of this sum by the Imperial Government, the Military Establishment has been largely reduced in its staff, its materiel, and its numerical strength, and the Gun-boat borne upon the Estimates for 1867 is as much as the Colony can be expected to pay for in the face of the admitted fact of the sum of $866,270 (exclusive of Stamp Act) being insufficient to pay for what Government consider necessary expenditures in a Colony of the size and position of Hongkong. These are new reasons not previously urged against the exaction of this sum, but in our opinion when added to those formerly advanced, are unanswerable.

56

Mandada.com

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1867.

   2ndly. That, assuming that the Military Contribution remains to be paid, the alleged deficiency in the Revenue to meet the expenditure arises from the following items on the expenditure side of the Estimates for 1867:

1. Cost of maintenance of Gun-boat,

2. Amount to be expended on additional Reservoir at Pok-foo-lum,

3. Sanitarium at Kowloon,

4. Carriage Road to Gap above Race Course,

5. Roads in Kowloon,

....

$26,000.

50,000.

11,000.

23,000.

4,000.

$114,000.

That, in preference to imposing an entirely new tax, the natural and ordinary course of Legislation with regard to Item No. 1 would be to impose a special addition to the Police Rate for the year of the requisite amount, and the expenditure would thus be borne by the proper constituency and come under its own departmental accounts as it undoubtly is of a Police and protective character.

   With regard to Item No. 2 a similar argument applies, and the expenditure can only properly be met by a special addition to the Water Rate, which would gladly be paid by the Community in this form, and, if any difficulty be imagined in this course, the Government could obtain the Money on a debenture, for three years at eight per cent per annum, giving the debenture holder a charge on the extra Water Rate to be imposed for three years expressly to provide for it. The only argument adduced against this is the reluctance of Government to borrow, but this is an evil of a minor character to that threatened by the proposed Stamp Ordinance.

Item No. 3 is an expenditure of a decidedly experimental character and considering recent Medical Protests against the salubrity of Kowloon and the sad loss of life the Military recently suffered there or from disease contracted there, it might well be deferred until the result of the new Military Trial Barrack there (now approaching completion) is known.

Item No. 4. This cannot be called a necessary expenditure being one purely for the greater comfort and convenience of that minority of the Public who can afford to make pleasure excursions or to keep horses and carriages. The Road leads to nowhere, can never, in any way, be helpful to trade or commerce, and the expenditure is one that ought only to be thought of when the Public Purse is in a position better able to afford ornamental improvements or extra conveniences than now when a new tax has to be imposed for the purpose.

Item No. 5. This small sum we only allude to as embodying the principle of our next ground of Protest, as roads in Kowloon are only wanted if people are expected to take up land, build and occupy houses, shops, or godowns there, which, in our opinion, will not be the case if the Stamp Ordinance passes.

   3rdly. That the tax will be an undue burden upon trade and seriously detrimental to the true interests of the Colony. Hongkong produces nothing, and the position it has acquired, in a Mercantile point of view, is partly owing to convenience of position coupled with a certain security afforded by being a British Colony, but mainly, and chiefly, because there have been no burdens on trade whatever, and it has been therefore cheaper to have this as a port of call for orders, as a dep?t, and centre of exchange and shipping business, than at any Chinese Port, where vessels have to pay Port Dues, &c., and goods have to pay Customs Dues, and where shipment and reshipment are encumbered by customs forms and requirements. This must be borne in mind when considering this tax, as a great many of the items in the Schedule will have to be borne by a foreign principal, the agent here having no interest (beyond commission) in the transaction. The Charter-parties, Bills of Lading, Agreements, Bills of Exchange, Policies of Insurance, Agreements and Powers of Attorney necessary to carry out such operations, would all be taxed, though no "trade," in the proper sense of the word, originates here as a Port of export, and the tax would have to be paid by persons who can get their business done without such a tax, say at Macao. The tax will drive business away very probably, and also deter people from investing capital in property as heretofore.

4thly. That the tax will be unequal in its operation and press unduly upon European and American Residents, as the Chinese are certain to evade the Ordinance, and without much fear of detection, their documents being in their own language and never seen by others than those directly interested.

5thly. That a new kind of tax should only be imposed when existing means fail, and that so far from there being any necessity for such an impost at present, it is not only unnecessary, but politically inespedient, as all the Money really required for the Public Service in 1867 can, if wanted, be readily raised by a special increase for a fixed period of the existing taxes respectively appropriated to each item of expenditure.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1867.

57

Lastly. On the ground that this, being a measure of taxation, should under the terms of Lord Stanley's despatch to Governor Bowring dated the 5th March, 1858, meet with the concurrence of the Majority of the Legislative Council, whereas the expressed opinions of the Majority of the Council were against the second reading of the Ordinance, and the Majority of one vote which appears as the actual result of the voting on the occasion was obtained solely under the pressure of that obligation on Official Members to vote, even against their convictions, for a measure proposed by Government, which places us, and all other non-Official Members of Council, necessarily in a ininority of votes on questions affecting the welfare and interests of the Colony and its residents, even though the opinions of the Majority of the Council may be with us and against the proposed Government measure.

His Excellency replies in the following terms; and directs an entry thereof to be made on the Minutes:- REPLY OF HIS EXCELLENCY.

I gladly find myself once more in a position to give this Council and the Community at large such explanations, as I hope may remove many misapprehensions connected with the measure submitted to you for placing your finances on a sounder footing,

I would have done so earlier, but felt it right to accede to the wishes of certain gentlemen, who asked for time to complete a Memorial against the proposed Stamp Bill. Accordingly I first adjourned the Council till last Friday, and on receipt of a further communication from the same gentlemen, adjourned the Meeting to this day.

To make the interval as useful as possible I published in the Government Gazette of the 1st instant the Schedule intended to be affixed to the Bill-a Schedule of that description and extent which from the first I had hoped, and which I should have preferred, to have framed in Council with your aid, after a careful sifting of the items in the Singapore Act. That Schedule has now been several days before the Public, and I am quite ready to amend it still further, if improvements can be suggested.

The Memorial transmitting resolutions against the Stamp Ordinance and presented to me this day has also been some time before the Public-whilst the Protest of three of the non-Official Members of Council, which you have just heard read, was laid before me by those gentlemen a week back. I have therefore the advantage of dealing with both instruments at once, and ascertaining whether either contains reasons that should stay the action of the Executive in this matter.

I must here remind you that a Public Meeting was held on the 28th ultimo to get up a Memorial against the imposition of any Stamp Duty, and that previously I had become aware that the intentions of Government were very generally misrepresented and ill understood.

I therefore took at once such measures as placed fully before the Public my intention of raising just as much and no more by the proposed Duty as might meet the probable annual deficit-assumed to be about $120,000. It was also stated that the published Schedule of the Singapore Act would be so modified as to meet the limited requirements of this Colony.

Very extensive circulation was given by the Press to those explanations, but nevertheless they were completely ignored subsequently, by the Meeting, and unnoticed in the Protest.

Hence the value of those documents is impaired, for, I presume that here as elsewhere it is desirable and convenient that parties protesting should know against what they protest. Thus a great portion of both the Memorial and Protest is really irrelevant, and directed against a proposal which I do not make, and which I never did intend to make.

Still through both documents runs a line of argument applicable to any Schedule of Stamp Duties, viz. the argument that the finances of the Colony exhibit no deficiency of a permanent character- and, if they do, that a Stamp Duty is not the best mode of meeting it.

Before dealing with these points I must advert, to one assertion of the Memorialists-who affirm that "though the proposed Stamp Act was originally given out to be merely a temporary measure to provide for the alleged deficit of 1867 it appears" from a subsequent statement by me that $120,000 "is fixed as a yearly addition to the Colonial Revenue to be derived from the new Duty."

66

I regret that such an assertion should be made so lightly, as it almost imputes a breach of faith to the Government for which there is not the shadow of a foundation. I recall to your recollection that on the 25th July I laid before you a statement of the financial position of the Colony and having shown that there had been for some years "an annually increasing deficiency"-I stated it was impossible to permit its continuance, and that there were two modes of dealing with it-by diminishing your Expenditure, or increasing your Revenue. I gave reasons for preferring the latter course, and my intention to ensure such result by a permanent increase of Revenue was obvious from the context, and especially from my recommending a Stamp Duty, the least likely of all taxes to be introduced for one year only. It so happens however that I left no room for mere inferences. I put an end to all doubt by subsequently adding the words "whilst I come before you with estimates necessarily exhibiting a "large deficit and a deficit, which there is no reasonable hope of soon seeing disappear, I rely on your "finding permanent funds to meet that deficiency, &c., &c., &c."

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1867.

To assert in spite of such plain language that I gave out the Stamp Act to be merely a "temporary measure to provide for the alleged deficiency of 1867"—is therefore, to say the least of it, very illogical.

Reverting however to the general argument against the necessity for any permanent addition to our Revenue-which forms a most legitimate ground for discussion-I cannot too strongly impress on you that almost the whole case for the Stamp Duty depends on the expediency and necessity of keeping up the usual Expenditure in the Surveyor General's department. Strike that off and you can balance your Revenue and Expenditure at once. No other items are capable of reduction in the same degree,- because even closing the Mint to-morrow would not bring you back the large sums sunk in starting it, and as shewn by the Estimates, would only save $20,000 in 1867-its supposed cost over receipts during that year. Now a saving of $20,000 does not give you $120,000, the sum required to square your account, and neither I nor this Council are at liberty to take such action, nor would as yet be justified in closing the Mint-a step premature and undesirable, till we know what profit it can realise by the subsidiary coinage, a process just commenced and on which the profits are larger and smaller than in coining dollars.

expenses

The main question however, preliminary to imposing any taxation, is whether for several come there is any fair probability of the usual Expenditure and the ordinary Revenue of the Colony years to balancing one another in the natural course of events. I venture to say that no one has given such details on this point as would justify us in adopting such a conclusion.

It is true that on all sides there is a very creditable willingness expressed to meet all necessary Expenditure. So far, so well, but the moment the items of Expenditure are mentioned, there is an immediate, onslaught on them and a declaration that some are unnecessary, and that others may be put off, whilst for the remainder it is better to borrow money at "8 per cent," or to double your Police and other Rates irrespective of the object for which those Rates have been imposed.

I may "en passant" explain that some of the items suggested for omission are not happily selected. The Road from the Gardens to the Gap is one passed in the Estimates of 1864, and deferred by dis- cussions with the Military Authorities. It is now again brought forward not merely as a boon to all classes in the form of an easily reached and agreeable addition to their walks and drives, but also as opening up hereafter pleasant and suitable Villa sites, destined at some future period to repay part of the cost of the Road's construction.

The suggestion to strike off the $4,000 for Roads in Kowloon is not feasible because the Colony is actually bound by agreements with its tenants to expend that sum. the Sanitarium at Kowloon referred to in the Memorial and Protest, it has only been deferred till now As to the proposed outlay on by discussions between the Civil and Military departments. It may be regarded as eventually repro- ductive because calculated to open up and render attractive a valuable property hitherto neglected, through causes beyond the control of the local Executive. Already Kowloon

Already Kowloon brings you a Revenue of $20,000 per annum, and it was understood originally that money derived from thence was mainly to be expended in improvements there. I think, whilst discharging that obligation, there is reasonable hope when the fine site of Mount Elgin is occupied by a suitable building, that public attention will be once more attracted to the neighborhood with results beneficial to the Treasury. The utility of other and important items are not disputed, such as the intended Reservoir at Pokfoolum, and a con- tribution by the Colony towards the maintenance of a Gunboat to be placed at the disposal of this Government. The expediency however of raising money by a Stamp Duty for those purposes is dis- puted and I shall presently come to that point.

In the mean time I would observe that, although I feel it right to shew that no items have been placed in the Estimates without due consideration, I nevertheless regard the discussion of these parti- cular details as really but an adjournment and as it were a frittering away of the main question which lies behind all such minor discussions. That question is, whether there really be to suppose, or whether it is desirable, if practicable, that for many years the Expenditure should any reasonable ground be less than now on works of utility and ornament, the promotion of sanitary objects, and general convenience or the rendering productive property which now lies unproductive.

  If our last road and our last drain and our final repairs to Public buildings, if in fact every thing, that marks progress in a Community, not yet smitten by decay, could be all completed by the end of 1867, most assuredly it would be unwise to introduce a Stamp or other tax of a permanent character to tide us over so short an interval as twelve months.

Yet those who signed the Memorial and the Protest know well that of all Public Expenditure, the one which tells most in conserving the reputation of Hongkong as the best commercial centre for the great financial operations of commerce in this part of the world, is the Government Expenditure on useful and sanitary, and (within reasonable limits) ornamental works. I hope that such Expendi- ture will never be less than in recent years.

way"

""

Strike out this or that item for next year and you will find they were merely "stopping the of other items no less necessary and useful in their turn because finality in progress is a thing contrary to the law of growth in a young and vigorous Community.

The mould, therefore, in which you should cast your legislation ought to be adapted to the pro- portions and the form which it is the hope of this Colony to attain hereafter, and I trust that we shall not be advised again to borrow money at eight per cent to fulfil what I regard as our ordinary annual

duty, loading our finances with obligations increased by heavy interest and for repayment of which, if honest, we must either impose an equivalent burthen by taxation in some other form or discontinue our Public improvements hereafter.

  These are some, but far from all the reasons, which should induce us to look our affairs in the face and cheerfully consent for the permanent benefit of the Community to provide funds adequate to discharge our natural, and ever recurring duties.

Possibly however, as the Estimates show a surplus on this year of about $85,000 it might be thought reasonable to wait for the Expenditure of that sum. It may therefore surprise you to learn. that although, if at the end of the current year the machinery of Government was suddenly to stop, and all expenses cease, the assets of the Colony might after collection of arrears and realising outstand- ing balances be found to reach some $80,000 beyond its liabilities, nevertheless you cannot hope to conduct the affairs of a large concern like this Government without some capital sunk to give you a margin to turn in. The whole Civil establishment is at this moment being paid with borrowed money. The Colony has actually no funds available and has been obliged to use for its current Expenditure portions of the fund known as "Judicial deposits"-money entrusted by the Courts to the custody of the Government. The greater part of these funds, will be called in after vacation, and must be made good by the Colony, whilst if other funds now expected, but not arrived, be not available, I shall have to prove the accuracy of the Memorialists' estimate of our flourishing financial condition by appealing

to them for assistance.

In proof of this I lay before you the usual weekly statement of the Treasurer, dated last Monday, the 3rd instant, and you have only to glance at it to see that-omitting the small balance of $6,426 then payable to the British Postmaster General-the Colony had only $59,200 to make good its liabilities to the Judicial deposit fund amounting to $147,249. In other words the Colony on Monday last owed that fund-which is soon to be called in-no less than $88,049. I therefore feel that you must agree with me in thinking it high time to put our finances in order.

I come now to the second great branch of the subject. Assuming that our financial difficulty is not unreal, it is said--this is the worst of all measures and a Stamp Duty the most unsuitable of taxes -that it will destroy the freedom of the Port, drive away trade, banish the Chinese, who will not even live at Kowloon, according to the Protest, if the Stamp Ordinance passes. Indeed I have seen in print of late some very gloomy pictures of Hongkong a few years hence, when the Stamp Duty shall have converted it into a sort of howling wilderness and the tenants of its palatial dwellings shall have become refugees at Macao and Canton, and the shipping which, at this moment crowds this magnificent harbor, shall have taken refuge in the muddy shallows of Macao.

I think I am entitled to ask in what manner the freedom of the Port will be narrowed, and what Duties will be levied on goods? What Port charges be payable, or what interference with the liberty of the Port can possibly result? No special case of the kind has yet been pointed out.

                                           All is vague and declaratory prophecy.

Those results have not followed the adoption at Singapore of a policy precisely similar in principle to that of the proposed Ordinance. Yet Singapore is essentially like Hongkong in being a free Port and a Commercial dep?t-where produce of other countries centres for subsequent distribution.

 There are no Customs Duties at Singapore any more than here-though some fees received for Registration of Shipping under the Merchant Shipping Act are entered under the head of "Customs" and might without explanations mislead on that point.

Now with this striking similarity of circumstances between Hongkong and the Straits Settle- ments, increased by the large Chinese population settled in the latter why should we infer such fatal results to our commerce from a Stamp Duty only 1-3rd of that imposed in those Settlements.

The Straits Times of the 25th ultimo speaks of the Stamp Act as "working satisfactorily,”—and in his annual report, just received, I find the Governor entirely confirming that statement, and adding the remarkable fact that at Singapore, Penang and Malacca the fines and penalties recovered under the Act for the preceding year "had not exceeded in the aggregate 200 Rupees," or less than $100! It would seem superfluous waste of your time to argue that, if a heavy and complicated Stamp Act works satisfactorily and without impediment to business in a Colony wonderfully similar to this in its general business transactions, it follows that an extremely simple application of the same prin- ciple, with a greatly lighter tariff would probably work even more satisfactorily.

 Compare the Schedule of the proposed Ordinance with that of Singapore. Instead of 71 heads under which Duties are leviable in the latter place you find only 21 here whilst the omitted items are considerable, such as Stamps on Cheques, Policies of Insurance, &c., &c. In those which are retained -as Bills of Exchange and Conveyances-the application of the Duty is greatly simplified and reduced. I therefore assert that the probable satisfactory working of the Bill here follows as a simple logical deduction from the facts ascertained at Singapore, and effectually disposes of nine-tenths of the denunciations against it--whether founded on the character of the trade here the history of the Colony-its previous legislation, or the danger of the precedent now introduced.

 Why therefore should this Council give to this vague, and I will even say, these unworthy apprehensions greater weight, than to the evident conclusions, which our Reason forces on us. I know one reply which has been given, and indeed the Memorialists do give it without any diffidence, in the assumption that they represent all the interests of the Colony and speak its unanimous voice.

60

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1867.

I must distinctly say that the Memorialists do not represent all the Colony nor even those resi- dents who now pay more than half the Revenue of the Colony, for the Asiatic residents, pay 4-7ths. of the existing ordinary Revenue. I have moreover received urgent remonstrances from several gentlemen whom the Memorialists say they represent, declaring the proposed Duty the fairest to the poorer class of European Householders, and protesting against what they somewhat unceremoniously call the "selfish effort" of the Memorialists to roll a burthen from themselves and their principals, without caring who may have to bear it, provided it falls from their own shoulders.'

   I will admit to the fullest degree the weight due to the position and individual intelligence of the leading Memorialists. And I further admit that it would be difficult to find so liberal and intelligent a Community as this in proportion to its numbers. Nevertheless I can recognize a Merchant's or Banker's experience and intelligence without being surprised-if he becomes suddenly incapable of seeing the wisdom of forcing his class to pay a percentage towards the Public exigencies. Therefore I think the policy of such a tax, as the Stamp Duty, can be more fairly decided otherwise, than by taking the votes on such a subject of the very persons, who expect to pay the greater portion of it.

It is unquestionably a Duty levied on the general business transactions of the Colony-which may be said to comprise in round numbers-including dealings with land, Bills of Lading and Exchange, &c., &c., 'transactions representing annually some 120 millions of Dollars. It is true that the tax is intended to be extremely light, not even one per mil, whilst much of that will fall on absent parties interested in and deriving profits from those transactions but otherwise in no way contributing to the expenses of the place. Nevertheless, small as that amount may be, those who have the largest trans- actions will have to pay the largest proportion, and I do not hesitate to assert that it is evidently right and just they should do so here as they do at Singapore.

Still if any better mode of repairing our financial position had been suggested, I was always ready to give it the most favorable consideration, because even an unreasonable repugnance to a just and necessary measure should at times have some weight with a Government.

   Yet what alternative I ask has been suggested? Procrastination and a temporary loan-as though, when we are already paying our way, as I have shewn, with borrowed money, it is not high time to devise means rather for repaying such debt, than for borrowing more.

That was one plan-another was to throw the cost of various Public Works on the House Rates. That, say the Memorialists, "has hitherto been the wise and prudent course of Legislation," and "all "previous Legislation has been in accordance with their Convictions," &c.

   Let us follow up this reasoning, and see where it would lead. When Legislation first commenced here Rates were unknown. As money was wanted houses were subsequently taxed. At first lightly, and subsequently more heavily till now the Rates amount to 12 per cent on the rental. Therefore say the Memorialists, Householders should now pay more because they already pay much. Thus if" previous Legislation" had gone on piling every burthen on that one spect of property till Rates amounted to fifty per cent we should, according to the Memorialists, have all the stronger argument for raising them still higher.

I confess I should argue in the reverse way that in proportion "as there has been previous "Legislation" of that kind, the more it becomes the duty of the Government to devise some fresh scheme for raising the necessary supplies instead of unfairly laying every new burthen on one species of property. Throwing every thing on the House Rates would really make scarcely any perceptible difference to the leading firms, but it would make a very sensible and painful difference to a class of persons who find it already very difficult to procure suitable or healthy abodes, and I would give to that consideration in this climate greater weight than in Europe.

But, say the Memorialists and my protesting friends, a Reservoir should be met by a water Rate, and the cost of the Gun-boat by an increased Police Rate. If it were so I think it would be soon necessary to raise those rates in some other than the old way-but I deny that the cost of a great Public work like the contemplated Reservoir should be thrown on the Householders alone. In the first place it is notorious that the existing Water Rates have been paid by numbers without receiving the supply to which they were entitled and I scarcely see why, now that we propose to give the promised supply, we should demand additional payment. 2ndly,-One main reason for increasing the supply is to ensure the means of cleansing the Chinese portion of the Town-and this, it must be frankly owned is done more from sanitary reasons affecting the general Community than from a regard to the interest of the Chinese, who would prefer living in their ordinary indifference to cleanliness if we were to permit it. We know however that yellow fever and cholera produced in the Chinese quarter may spread to the European quarter-and we endeavor therefore for our own safety to purify the abodes of our neighbours.

   As for the gun-boat, if H. M. Government be still disposed to continue their liberal offer of such a vessel, it would be for the purpose of enabling the Colony to perform its duties as a separate State better than heretofore,-duties which involve a surveillance over the neighboring waters and the prevention of any part of the Colony being made a rendezvous and place of equipment for Pirates. The cost whether large or small of discharging that duty should evidently be borne by the General Revenue and not by each Householder, as though he were contributing to the expense of the Police for patrolling his street. Finally as to this question of increasing the Rates, I would remind the Council that at a Public Meeting in August 1864, consisting of nearly the very same persons who attended the recent Meeting-an address to the Secretary of State was voted protesting against the

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1867.

61

Military Contribution and one of the leading arguments in that address was the poverty of the Chinese residents, who were represented some to be "quite beyond the pale of taxation," and the majority of the rest to be only artisans or "small shopkeepers in "a way of business far from lucrative."

I have already stated that this impoverished class contributes 4-7ths. of the Colonial Revenue, and I may now inform you that although the European population paid $110,000 of this year's Rates, the Chinese had paid up to the 25th August no less than $94,000. Now it does seem inconsistent to have represented them two years ago as incapable of bearing the burden of taxation, and yet, when the object is to move that burthen from the Europeans, to discover that doubling the Rates, to which the Chinese already contribute so heavily, would be a just and expedient measure. I think it would be well, if each indignation Meeting, before endorsing any Memorial, were to refer to the records of its predecessor.

I may add that even the weak argument of the Chinese probably evading the provisions of a Stamp Ordinance is not borne out by experience in the Straits, where the Chinese regard the Government Stamp as giving an additional validity to their bargains, in harmony with their own customs, and which they think well worth the cost.

I scarcely know whether I ought to note the fact mentioned in the Protest that one of the official Members of Council expressed an opinion adverse to the principle of the proposed Bill. I understood him merely to ask for a preliminary inquiry into the preferable mode of raising the necessary funds, and that he disapproved of the Schedule of the Singapore Act, which I likewise disapproved. I believe the amended Schedule entirely meets his views and that it really meets those of many others originally opposed to the measure, and indeed it is quite evident from the tone of a portion of the Press that the Memorialists do not represent Public feeling so generally as they had supposed.

I regret extremely that I have been obliged to occupy your attention so long, but I have no other means of placing before the Public the Government views of a very important question. I shall however only advert to one more point, but that is the heaviest grievance of the Memorialists, viz.: "the expansive powers of a Stamp Ordinance." It appears I had mentioned this as amongst the advantages of such taxation. This they call "the evil at the bottom of the whole proposition." I would remind them that, if I mentioned that point, I equally alluded to such a Bill's "capability of immediate contraction" whilst the objection of expansiveness Hes more or less against every scheme of taxation. Those who see a capability of expansion in Stamps have not failed to discover it also in the Police and Water Rates and even to press it to the extent of class legislation.

In point of fact however it was rather contraction than expansion which I had in view-for I was aware that a serious objection to the Bill-and one, which deprives me of the adhesion of some leading Members of the Community is that it is impolitic for the Colony to shew any surplus on its Balance Sheet. It is thought I hope only by a few that the Home Government might in such case increase the Colonial contribution towards Imperial objects.

   You see that I am very candid-but that such feeling did exist and does exist is well known to many of my friends and I could not ignore it.

   I therefore caused the proposed Bill to be so framed as to give the Governor in Council power to annul or lessen the Duty on any item, but no power to add to the items or increase the Duties. It does appear to me therefore rather hard that, having been thus careful to prevent the receipts from Stamp Duties exceeding the contemplated requirements of the Government, I should find the Memorialists designating my well intentioned effort in their behalf-as "the evil lying at the bottom "of the whole proposition."

I have now put the Government case before you-and shall be well pleased, if I find, on discussion, that without undue sacrifice of Revenue, I can redistribute the incidence of the proposed taxation in a manner more acceptable to those whom it will affect.

HARBOR MASTER'S DEPARTMENT, HONGKONG, 20th February, 1867.

 SIR,-In forwarding my Annual Returns and Report of the Shipping of this Port for the year ending the 31st December, 1866, I regret having to report a large decrease in the arrivals amounting to 113,403 Tons the whole of which is in British bottoms; the arrivals in foreign bottoms remaining at about the same tonnage as in 1865.

Shipping.

The British trade with India has fallen off 91,880 Tons, and with the ports in China (exclusive of Macao and Canton) see River Trade, 25,758 Tons; with America, Java, and Japan there is also a decrease amounting to 19,267 Tons, but against this large decrease from the places mentioned it is satisfactory to find the trade from Great Britain, Australia, and Siam has increased 24,158 Tons, still leaving with a few trifling differences on other Countries the large falling off before mentioned.

With respect to the arrivals in foreign vessels, the trade with India, North and South America, Java, and Japan has decreased to the amount of 44,923 Tons, against an increase from Great Britain, Australia, Siam and Ports of China of 44,290 Tons, which with a few slight differences from other Countries will shew in the whole an increase of 57 Tons.

Of the difference in the numbers of vessels arriving at this port during the last year, there is a falling off on the whole of 310, of these 259 are British. The Danish Flag in these waters, since the war in the Schleswig-Holstein Duchies has nearly ceased to exist. In 1865, 141 vessels of that nation were entered, this last year, shews a Return of 33 only. The Prussian Flag is becoming more common and will during the current year shew a still larger number of vessels wearing it. The American, Dutch, French and Spanish vessels have also increased in numbers.

 The depressed state of Trade between China and India during the last year will account for the great falling off of British Shipping, nearly the whole of that Trade in 1865 having been done by English Steamers. There was then a strong inducement for vessels to bring cargoes here en route to India and Great Britain and several large vessels were employed in bringing Indian produce for China; during 1866 there was no such inducement and many vessels were consequently kept running between the Northern ports of China, while others were sold to the Japanese.

River Trade.

Hitherto the Trade with the neighbouring ports of Macao and Canton, has not been included in the Returns; it is now entered, but as an addition, so that it shall not appear in the comparative statement of Trade between 1865 and 1866; it will for the future be included under the common heading of "Coast of China and Formosa." This Trade (with the exception of that conveyed in Junks) is now entirely under the British Flag, the vessels engaged in it being owned by the "Hongkong, "Canton and Macao Steam Boat Company, Limited,"-a Company composed of Foreign and native residents.

My next Report will include the Junk Trade between this and the coast of China.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 9TH MARCH, 1867.

Exports and Imports.

   These sheets are forwarded in a blank state as from the absense of a regular Custom House the Returns cannot be collected.

Emigration.

There has been little doing in this branch of the Department for the year 1866. The Emigration to California at one time averaging from seven to nine thousand Chinese per annum has lessened considerably; but there is a probability of its increasing with the advent of the new American Steam line. While Emigration hence to the British West Indies has wholly ceased; the Dutch Government appears desirous of introducing Chinese agricultural laborers from Hongkong into its colonies. The total number of Emigrants returning to their native country is 9253, the greater number being from Singapore, San Francisco, Bangkok, Sydney and Saigon. The arrival of Bullion from Australia is 20,821 ounces of gold, and 13,445 Sovereigns; and from San Francisco 1,512,901 Dollars.

Registry of Shipping.

   Under the Merchant Shipping Act 17 Vessels have received Registers at this Port, but the total remaining tonnage on the Register Book has decreased considerably, for the reasons given in a former part of this report. The amount of Fees received under the same Act is a little in excess of the

Seamen.

year 1865.

The number of, shipped and discharged amounts to 7150 and 7197 respectively, this is a decrease and is consequent on the dullness of Trade during the year. The removal of the shipping and discharging branch of this Department to the "Sailors' Home" is found a great convenience to Shipmasters and Seamen, and of course assists materially in the support of that very excellent Institution. By the change, Masters and Seamen are more readily brought into contact, they each enjoy greater freedom of choice and while the former escape the great nuisance of being harassed by Boarding house keepers the latter claim and receive the willing assistance and advice of the able Superintendent of the "Home."

Marine Magistrate's Court.

   The number of cases tried is in excess of the number in the previous year, but none of the cases were of a serious nature, and with the exception of two, were dealt with summarily.

Examinations, Ord. 17 of 1860.

   Under this Ordinance-27 Masters and Mates have received Certificates of Competency and 10 have been rejected as being unable to pass the required examinations. This is a large proportion of rejections and can be attributed to the want of proper training of young Officers for the Mercantile Marine.

Marine Courts, Ord. 11 of 1860.

These Courts have been held in five instances during the year. The first on the "Pride of the Ganges" to enquire into the circumstances attending the mutiny of Chinese Emigrants and loss of life on board that vessel while pursuing a voyage from Whampoa to Demerara. The other four being to enquire into the causes of the wrecks of the "Fairlight" on the Meiaco Sina group, the "Westminster" on the Pratas Shoal,-the "T. E. Boyd" on the Pescadores Islands, and the "Teen Chang" on Cupchi Point.—I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

  The following Report of the Registrar General, with Returns annexed for the Year 1866, is published for general information.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 12th March, 1867.

No. 14.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE, VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 22nd February, 1867.

SIR,I have the honor to forward you the Census Returns for 1866, and the Statistics required for the Colonial Blue Book, as called for in your letter No. 712 of 31st December last.

The Returns shew an estimated decrease of 10,406 in the Population of the Colony compared with those for 1865. Considerable care has been taken in compiling the different Schedules and I have fair reason for believing that the Returns in their entirety exhibit a more accurate account of the Census of Hongkong, than those hitherto presented.

  Free use has been made of the experience gained by this Office in former years, and the plan as submitted in my Report of 3rd December last was fully carried out.

  The Mercantile crises which during the past year have affected more or less the trade of all civilized countries have left a clear and well defined mark on the trade of the Native Merchants of Hongkong.

It has been a year of most unusual depression in business.

  On examining the accounts of tradal transactions, which in ordinary course takes place at the close of the Chinese New Year, it is found that the largest amount of profit made by a single Hong did not exceed $15,000, and that those who made anything at all were very few in number.

The Rice dealers compute their losses at Four Hundred Thousand Dollars, and those who deal in general merchandize, while unable to find out what their deficiencies may be in the bulk, yet put forward one instance of a Hong in ordinary business losing $130,000 and many others whose losses were over $10,000.

  And as these Hongs have thus failed to make money, a conclusion may naturally be drawn that the smaller shopkeepers have felt most severely the ill-success of the larger dealers.

  This state of affairs combined with an ill-defined feeling of fear as to the scope and effect of the fresh legislation introduced by His Excellency Sir R. G. MACDONNELL, caused numerous families to leave for their own villages from whence they could contemplate, without experiencing, the good or (what was expected) bad results of the operation of the new Ordinances. These people had nothing to keep them in Hongkong and saw nothing but advantage in leaving it at least for a time.

  However, that they did not go away in great numbers is shewn by the Returns, for the last quarter of 1866 of the Hongkong, Canton and Macao Steam-Boat Company, which by the courtesy of the Agents I have had the opportunity of examining.

  It is there seen that by the Canton and Macao routes very nearly as many persons arrived in the Colony as left. Of course other outlets have been availed of, but had there been a great exodus there can be little doubt but that the Steamers of the Company referred to would have afforded the means of departure.

  With respect to the class of persons who have gone away, I do not consider that they formed a very large portion of those whom the Colony would be interested in retaining. A wholesome fear of the new Ordinances inspired many, and their departure from Hongkong has been to our advantage.

The Boat population is slightly larger than that for 1865, though there is this marked difference. In former years the Harbor of Victoria contained by far the larger share, while the Returns for 1866 shew that the Villages claim very nearly half of the total Boat population. And as the number of Steamers, frequenting the Harbor, increases, we may naturally expect that the number of native craft will decrease, for the one cannot stand competition with the other, and the necessity for the smaller Boats will also by degrees become less and less.

  Considering all the circumstances connected with Trade and other results of the past year I think that the Returns on the whole present as favorable an appearance as could be expected, and though the Population was less on December last year than when the Census was taken in 1865, yet there are now unmistakeable signs of a daily increase.-I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

The Honorable, W. T. MERCER,

CECIL C. SMITH,

Registrar General.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The Colonial Surgeon's Report, with Returns on the Sanitary Condition of the Colony for the Year 1866, is published for general information.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 18th March, 1867.

W. T. MERCER, Colonial Secretary.

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 23rd February, 1867. The Year 1866, the subject of my Eighth Annual Report, has been generally considered the mildest and most healthy year the Colony has passed through for a very long period. That opinion I am happy to say is supported by statistics. From Table XI it appears that only 74 Residents have died during the year, bringing the ratio of mortality as low as 3.50 per cent, a very remarkable result when compared with the average number of deaths during the past nine years as exhibited in the Table. A year so remarkably healthy having succeeded what may not inaptly be termed the pestilential year of 1865 appears to favor the theory to which I alluded in my last year's Report namely that the Meteorological wave is not of the usual undulating character, gradually rising to a maximum and as gradually attaining the minimum, but which if capable of being presented to the eye on paper would appear rather as a zig-zag figure, which having attained the maximum, suddenly drops to a minimum. Then assuming this theory to be correct and that the salubrity of Hongkong follows this wave in some degree, we may fairly infer that the unhealthiness would gradually increase up to a certain year, when its maximum would be again attained and the following year would in like manner be as healthy as the one which has just terminated. I do not profess to have arrived at any very definite conclusions on the subject and rather mention it as a matter to be followed out by others. What I have stated has appeared to me the legitimate result of observations extending over a period of more than 20 years.

   Notwithstanding the remarkable healthiness of the past year I regret to say that yellow fever or pseudo-yellow fever, has been even more prevalent than in 1865. In the Gaol alone 533 cases were admitted to treatment, but of this number 32 only terminated fatally. The Civil Hospital was not so fortunate, there of 53 patients admitted 30 died, but the difference in the two cases may be explained by the fact that most of the patients when admitted to the Civil Hospital were in a nearly moribund condition. In consequence of my last year's Report on this disease His Excellency the Governor appointed a commission consisting of myself and the Principal Military and Naval Surgeons, to enquire into the nature and probable cause of this disease and to devise means for arresting its progress. As the Report of this committee was published in the Government Gazette of the 12th May 1866, it is unnecessary for me to do more than refer to it here. Suffice it to say that the general conclusions at which the committee arrived corroborated to a great extent the statements I had made in my own Report. Last year's experience of such a large number of cases has not induced me to alter my opinion and the only alteration made in the treatment has consisted in adding diuretics to the mercurial course. I free from any sign of the epidemic this year.

am happy to say that up to this time we continue

   Small pox began rather later than usual, the first case occurring in February, but on the other hand it extended further on in the season, a case having been recorded in April and two singular isolated cases in August.

It has been for long a point under discussion whether Hydrophobia occurs in Hongkong. A very sad case of a gentleman well known in the Colony, who had been bitten by a dog and subsequently died, was narrowly watched by myself and several other practitioners throughout the course of the malady, but even after careful Post Mortem examination, the case remained obscure and I believe that the majority of my professional brethren were of opinion that a strong mental impression had more to do with the fatal result than Rabies. A feeling of terror appeared to seize the community and had an epidemic of hydrophobia occurred I should not have been the least surprised, as it was, several cases were reported amongst the military, but as I had no opportunity of examining closely into their details, and as the existing excitement was not conducive to arriving at dispassionate conclusions, I am compelled, as far as my own opinion is concerned, to let my antecedent impressions retain their full force. That hydrophobia has occurred in Hongkong cannot be doubted, but that it is of extremely rare occurrence appears to me equally evident. condition of the various Institutions of which it is my duty to take cognizance in my Annual Report.

My few remaining observations had best be made when treating of the

I. THE POLICE.

   This Faroe has undergone considerable weeding during the past year. It is no longer called upon to act as a chaingang guard, a mode of employment which appeared to be very demoralizing in its tendency, and its duties are now limited to the preservation of the Public Peace. Whether from these or other causes the health of the Force has been much better in 1866 than in the preceding year, and although the total number of men employed was somewhat less than in the year 1865 it will be seen from Table I and II that both the mortality and sickness were less than the average, the death rate being only 1.78 per cent and the rate of sickness 96.08. With efficient officers and the splendid accommodation with which the Force is now provided, it ought to retain that preeminence in health for which it has always been characterized.

NAME. SENTENCE.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 23RD MARCH, 1867.

Table I. shews the number of admissions into, and deaths in, the Hospital, of members of the Police Force, during every month of 1866.

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

  Table III. kindly furnished to me by Dr. Robertson, the Principal Military Medical Officer, gives a comparative return of the health of the Troops serving in Hongkong, from which it will be seen that a marked improvement has taken place in the health of the Military: the death ratio not having reached one half of what it attained in 1865.

II. THE GOVERNMENT CIVIL HOSPITAL.

  Table IV. gives the number of admissions into and the Mortality in this Hospital during the year 1806, to which is added for the purpose of comparison the average number of admissions and deaths during the past nine years.

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

  Table VI. kindly sent me by the Resident Surgeon, Dr. Adams, gives information in reference to the Seaman's Hospital. It is gratifying to find a marked improvement in the death rate, following upon the opening of the magnificent establishment at Morrison Hill, for which the Seamen frequenting this port are entirely indebted to the princely liberality of one of our mercantile firms.

In the Civil Hospital the absolute mortality has been a trifle higher than it was in 1865. But as I pointed out last year this increase is rather apparent than real, for in the case of European patients the rate has actually been more favorable than it has been since 1862, 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 again occurred, a mortality reaching as high as 33.55 per cent on the admissions. Such a frightful state of matters requires the explanation that, the great majority of Chinese admissions to Hospital consist of moribund or nearly moribund patients. Some of these I am led to believe have been put out into the street by those with whom they lodged, who are desirous of escaping the expense and other inconveniences attendant upon death in their houses, and are in As all cases of this this state picked up by the Police and brought to Hospital, where in half an hour or so death ensues. description have to appear in our Returns it is thus that the result looks so bad.

Under the head of Starvation there have been 35 admissions, 6 Indians and 29 Chinese; of this number 2 Indians and 17 Chinese have died. The same explanation, which has been offered in reference to yellow fever cases, may also to a certain extent apply to those of starvation admitted to Hospital. I am glad to say that no European was admitted into Hospital under If therefore year. this head, a result no doubt consequent upon the wise arrangements of the Government to which I referred last the 30 deaths from yellow fever and the 19 deaths from starvation are put out of consideration, the total number of deaths will be 89 only, which would give the wonderfully low death rate of 7.93 per cent on the 1,122 admissions. A result which, considering the utter unfitness of this establishment for its intended purpose, reflects great credit on Dr. Cochran the Resident Surgeon.

III. THE GAOL.

Table VII. shews the number of admissions into the Gaol Hospital and deaths there during. the year 1866, with the average number of admissions and deaths during the past nine 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 1866.

The numbers imprisoned in Victoria Gaol during the past year, were:

Europeans Indians

Chinese

The daily average was 5842 of which number 70 have died.

Another year of yellow fever, as I have already mentioned has gone far to swell the death rate. from this disease were admitted into Hospital, of which number 32 died.

533 Prisoners suffering

Extensive ulcers of the feet and legs terminating not unfrequently in death formed almost an epidemic at one time. 281 prisoners were admitted into Hospital of whom 16 died. This disease became so alarming in its extent that His Excellency the Governor ordered an enquiry to be made by the Police Magistrates and myself, and the result of our enquiry proved these sores to be in the great majority of cases self inflicted, for the purpose of escaping from the, to them objectionable, system

of chain gang work which had lately been adopted. It was however found that by punishing every case of well proved self inflicted injury and compelling those who had thus hurt themselves to march down and break stones in some public locality, with boards specifying their crimes placed in front of them, what threatened to be an epidemic soon diminished and has now nearly disappeared. Of those who died the great majority refused to submit to amputation and perished from mortification or the extreme prostration of the system consequent on the great drain produced by the extensive ulceration.

In my last year's Report I referred to the system of public flogging and I have seen no reason to alter the opinion then expressed. A more efficient whipping post would however be a great improvement. I have been present on every occasion when this punishment has been inflicted and have subsequently had the treatment of the men in Hospital and I have become very strongly impressed with the belief that a great improvement on the present system would be to cast the criminals a drift from the whipping post, to return to their companions in guilt, a terror to evil doers, rather than to take them into Hospital It to be nursed for a couple of months, where they are too comfortable to be at all desirous of making a rapid recovery. would prove much more deterrent of crime than long imprisonment or even repeated floggings. This suggestion applies all the more forcibly where the crime has been one admitting of branding the criminal previous to deportation, which might be accom- plished before the men are flogged. This admirable plan of tattooing a broad arrow on the lobe of the left ear, considering that it is never done except at the criminal's own request, has nothing objectionable in it that I can imagine. It is a painless operation which cannot affect the health.

The Establishment is a model of cleanliness, good ventilation and good management and reflects the highest credit on the Officer in charge.

IV. THE CONVICT HULK.

As this establishment was discontinued and merged into Victoria Gaol in October, as yet with apparently nothing but good results, I need not do more than refer to Table IX. which shews the rate of sickness and mortality at Stone Cutter's Island, during the first nine months of the year.

V. THE LOCK HOSPITAL.

Table X. gives the usual information in regard to this Institution. Much has been done in the way of suppressing pri- vate and unlicensed brothels by the new Inspectors on their appointments, but whether from the first burst of zeal having be- come extinct or from the Prostitutes and their keepers being too sharp for the Inspectors, these spurts of improvement have been temporary only. No really thorough efficiency can be expected until the new Ordinance on the subject, which I believe it is the intention of His Excellency the Governor to introduce, becomes the law of the Colony.

Table XI. is an approximative estimate of the mortality among Foreign Residents in Hongkong during the last nine years. The data from which it is compiled are furnished to me, so far as the number of Residents is concerned by the Regis- trar General, and by the Sextons of the two cemeteries so far as the deaths are concerned. This table does not embrace Sol- diers, Sailors whether employed in the Navy or the Merchant Service, or those who have been buried from the Hospitals. From an inspection of this table it will appear that the death rate among Foreign Residents in this Colony was, as might well have been expected, very much below the average, lower indeed than it had been since 1862.

Table XII. gives the usual information regarding the work performed by the Inspector of nuisances attached to this De- partment.

 Table XIII. Shews the annual mean state of the atmosphere during the year 1866 as recorded at the Government Civil Hospital.

VICTORIA, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Queen, Defender of the Faith. To

all to whom these Presents shall come, Greeting:

  Whereas, by a Warrant under Our Royal Sign Manual, countersigned by one of Our Principal Secretaries of State, and bearing date at Our Court at Buckingham Palace, the 29th day of January, 1856, in the nineteenth year of Our Reign, We did constitute and create a new Naval and Military Decoration, to be styled and designated the Victoria Cross, which Deco- ration We expressed Our desire should be highly prized and eagerly sought after by the Officers and Men of Our Naval and Military Services, and did also make, ordain, and establish the Rules and Ordinances therein set forth for the government of the same, to be thenceforth inviolably observed and kept:

  And whereas during the progress of the operations which We have undertaken against the Insurgent Native Tribes in Our Colony of New Zealand, it has happened that persons serving in the Local Forces of Our said Colony have performed deeds of gallantry, in consideration of which they are not, according to the strict provisions of Our said recited Warrant, eligible for this high distinction :

Now know ye, that We of Our especial Grace, certain knowledge, and mere motion, have thought fit hereby to signify Our Royal Will and Pleasure that the said Decoration may be conferred on such persons aforesaid, who may be qualified to receive the same in accordance with the Rules and Ordinances made, ordained, and established by Us for the government thereof, by Our said recited Warrant, and We do by these Presents for Us, Our Heirs and Successors, ordain and appoint that it shall be competent for such persons aforesaid to obtain the said Decoration in the manner set forth in the Rules and Ordinances referred to, or in accordance with such further Rules and Ordinances as may hereafter be made and promulgated by Us, Our Heirs and Successors, for the government of the said Decoration, provided that it be established in any case that the person was serving with Our Troops, under the Orders of a General or other Officer, under circumstances which would entitle an Officer or Soldier of Our Army to be recommended for the said Decoration, in accordance with the Rules and Ordinances prescribed in Our said recited Warrant, and provided also such person shall be recommended for it by such General or other Office

..

130

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH APRIL, 1867.

  And We do further for Us, Our Heirs and Successors, ordain and appoint that the said Decoration may also be conferred, in accordance with the Rules and Ordinances prescribed in Our said recited Warrant, and subject to the provisions aforesaid, on such

persons who may be qualified to receive the same in accordance with the said Rules and Ordinances, as may hereafter be employed in the Local Forces raised, or which may be raised in Our Colonies and their Dependencies, who may be called upon to serve in co-operation with Our Troops in military operations which it may be necessary to undertake for the suppres- sion of Rebellion against Our Authority, or for repelling invasion by a foreign enemy.

The above light is not visible from the Aliwal Shoal, which is 25 miles S., 53° W.; from the Lighthouse: vessels should not, therefore, when coming from the southward and westward, approach the shore nearer than 4 miles, or shoal their water under 40 fathoms, using the lead freely until they make the light well out from the deck, when they may stand in until it bears N. 59° E.,-which bearing will keep them outside all known danger-until they are abreast of the Umlazi River (about) 9 miles below the Lighthouse), when they must keep it more to the northward, as the land trends more to the eastward, giving the shore a good berth of a mile, and when the light bears about W.N.W., they can haul in to the northward for the anchorage: anchoring in 8 to 10 fathoms, with the Lighthouse bearing S.W. to S.W.S., distant 1 mile.

 "On the 25th February the Board received Your Excellency's despatch stating that it had been represented by the British Consul that a Mint had been established at Hongkong for the coinage of a new Dollar, and that (on application for) the appointment of officials for an assay of this coin Your Excellency together with the Superintendent of Customs had appointed officers for this purpose, by whom, on an assay being held, it was ascertained that (the new Dollar) was equal to the standard

of 9/10 as compared with the pure Silver (Sycee) of the Customs' department, and was equal (in purity or value) to the Mexican Dollar at present used as currency, whence it resulted that Taels 110.1.1 in the new coinage of Hongkong equals Tacls 100 in Hai-Kwan Sycee, an authentication to which effect was accordingly drawn up in testimony thereof. The dollar should therefore be permitted hereupon to be used in payment of duty and in ordinary currency, as a convenience to the mercantile and other classes; and the VICEROY hereupon issued a proclamation, conjointly with the Governor of Kwang-tung and the Superintendent of Customs, notifying the same to the public. Copies of the Authentication, proclamation, &c., were forwarded annexed to this despatch. On receipt hereof, the Board have to observe that, in as much as it appears on an assay of the quality of the new coinage referred to that it is equal to the standard of 9/10, and may pass current on equal terms with the present Eagle (Mexican) Coinage and may also, on payment of the due amount of premium as against Sycee, be used in the discharge of Government duties, it is certainly proper that such privileges be conceded to it. It is at the same time necessary that evil doers be stringently prohibited from counterfeiting this coinage or perpetrating (other) acts of fraud by means thereof, to the end that (the arrangements now made) may be obeyed in perpetuity. Should, however, the intrinsic value of the coin hereafter become depreciated, or the trading classes be averse to making use of it, or should irregularities occur entailing injury to the public interests, the Dollar may not in such cases be insisted upon as a valid tender in payment of Government dues. It is impossible not to take into account the possibility of the various objections above enumerated; and the Board in addition to communicating with the British Minister, have to address this despatch to Your Excellency and to request that it may be duly noted. Enclosed is copy of the Board's despatch to the British Minister."

   On receipt of the foregoing the Viceroy, in addition to communicating its purport to his colleagues, has to acquaint. the honorable Consul with its contents, and begs him to take note thereof,-He avails, &c.
