GENERAL POST OFFICE, 10th December, 1867. SIR,-With reference to my letter of the 6th instant, in which I informed you that the Postmaster-General had con- cluded a new Contract with the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company for the conveyance of the India and China Mails, I am directed by His Grace to forward to you some copies of the new Contract.

In transmitting these papers, I am to call your attention to the following points, in which the new Contract differs from that now in force :-

The Mails for India will, under the new Contract, be despatched from London en fixed days in every week, on the morning of every Saturday, for transmission via Southampton, and on the evening of the following Friday, for transmission vid Marseilles, and each Mcil will be conveyed to Bombay instead of alternately to Bombay and Calcutta.

The Mails for Ceylon, the Straits Settlements and China, will be despatched on every alternate Saturday and Friday, and the service, instead of terminating at Shanghai, will be continued to Yokohama.

     In like manner, the homeward Packets will leave Bombay on a fixed day in every week, and will leave Yokohama, Shanghai, Hongkong, and Point de Galle, on fixed days in every alternate week.

     Mails for the several Australian Colonies will be despatched from London with every alternate Mail to Point de Galle. Those Mails will consequently be conveyed from Galle to Sydney, and from Sydney to Galle, once in every fourth week, instead of once in a calendar month, as at present.

In order to accelerate as much as possible the service between Marseilles and Alexandria, the Packet on that route will go direct, via the Straits of Messina, instead of by way of Malta.

     With a like object of accelerating the China Mail Service, the Packets on the line between Point de Galle and Hongkong will no longer call at Penang, and the stay at Singapore will be limited to 12 hours of daylight.

     The Postmaster-General requests that the Duke of Buckingham and Chandos will have the goodness to communicate with the Officers administering the governments of Malta, Ceylon, the Straits Settlements, Labuan, Hongkong, the Australian Colonies and New Zealand, informing them of these new arrangements.

     In connection with these arrangements, I am to observe that, although the Packet from Marseilles will not call at Malta, there will be a weekly service between the United Kingdom and that Colony via Southampton.

     Further, with respect to Penang, which is also omitted from the new scheme, I am to state that the correspondence for that Island will be sent in the Mails for Singapore.

     I enclose some copies of a Time Table showing the proposed movements of the India, China, and Australia Mail Packets for the ensuing year.

The Postmaster-General has already, in the letter of the 6th instant, above referred to, drawn attention to the effect which the new arrangements will have on the correspondence for Mauritius.-I am, &c.,

It will be desirable that you should take such steps as may be necessary for giving publicity to the state of things disclosed in this correspondence, and for warning Ship Owners in the Colony under your Government of the course pursued by the Baltimore Shipping Masters.-I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient humble Servant,

Extracts of a Letter from Mr. Consul Rainals to Lord Stanley, dated British Consulate, Baltimore, 11th November, 1867, No. 25.

"Hitherto white and colored seamen have been shipped indiscriminately on board the same vessel, whereas now the shipping masters and the boarding house keepers have at a period when trade is extremely dull and seamen consequently plentiful, determined not to ship a white man on board the same vessel with a colored man, and their combined power in the matter cannot be counteracted by any means at my command, as through their medium alone can seamen be obtained.

    In order to illustrate the practical result of such combination, I have the honor to submit for your Lordship's consideration a case of recent date.

    The British ship R. B. Mulhall arrived kere a short time ago with a mixed crew of white and colored seamen shipped at Liverpool, Nova Scotia, for a term of twelve months. Soon after her arrival, several of the men deserted (as is invariably the case here), but one colored man and two white men remained by her. When she was nearly ready for sea the Captain told me that the shipping masters positively refused to ship a white crew on board the vessel so long as the colored man remained there.

    This colored man the Captain informed me was an excellent seaman whose services he was as anxious to retain as the man was desirous to remain by the vessel until the expiration of his term of service.

      My instructions give me no authority to compel a seaman to leave a ship without just cause, and yet I felt that, the case being without a precedent as far as I am concerned, I should not be justified in delaying the departure of the vessel for an indefinite period. I therefore determined if necessary to take some responsibility on myself by discharging the colored seaman and sending him home at the ship's expense.

Fortunately, however, I was later able to persuade him to take his discharge on payment of additional wages. And the

matter was so settled.

Under these circumstances I would solicit your Lordship's instructions as to the means I may be permitted to adopt if cases of a similar nature present themselves again, but when the colored seamen insist on remaining on board the vessel until their time of service shall have expired."

Mr. Hammond to Mr. Consul Rainals.

Foreign Office, 30th November, 1867.

SIR, I am directed by Lord Stanley to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch, No. 25, of the 11th instant, reporting a difficulty which had arisen in consequence of the refusal of the shipping masters at Baltimore, to ship a white crew on board the British vessel R. B. Mulhall, as long as a colored seaman remained on board that vessel.

As it appears from your despatch that the negro in question subsequently accepted his discharge, it is unnecessary for Lord Stanley to make any observation on this particular case, but in reply to your request for instructions as to the course you should adopt in any similar case in future, I am to state to you, that this is not a matter in which Her Majesty's Govern- ment can interfere. Your powers as Consul are clearly defined by the "Merchant Shipping Act," and you can only remove a seaman from a British ship as ordered by that Act.

Colored seamen being British subjects are in all respects to be treated as other seamen.

      It must therefore be left to the masters and owners of ships to adopt such measures as they may think best calculated to obviate the difficulties caused by the course pursued by the Baltimore shipping masters, and in order that British and Colonial shipowners may be warned of the necessity of taking such measures, Lord Stanley has caused a copy of your despatch to be communicated to the Colonial Office and to the Board of Trade.-I am, &c.

 A Book Packet may contain any number of separate Books, Almanacks, Maps or Prints, and any quantity of paper, vellum or parchment (to the exclusion of letters whether sealed or open); and the Books, Maps, Paper, &c., may be either printed, written or plain, or any mixture of the three.

All legitimate binding, mounting, or covering of the same or of a portion thereof, will be allowed, whether such binding be loose or attached; as also rollers in the case of prints, markers (whether of paper or otherwise,) in the case of Books, and in short whatever is necessary for the safe transmission of literary or artistic matter or usually appertains thereto.

Every Book packet must be either without a cover, or in a cover open at the ends or sides. It must not contain any letter, open or sealed, nor any sealed enclosure whatever.

No packet must exceed two feet in length, breadth or depth, exceeding these dimensions it cannot be forwarded through the Post.

AS REGARDS PATTERNS.

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

There must be no writing or marks other than the address of the person for whom the packet is intended, a trade mark and numbers, and prices of the articles; otherwise the Packet will be detained or forwarded charged as an unpaid letter.

The Patterns must be sent in covers open at the ends, so as to be easy of examination. Samples however, of seeds, drugs, and so forth, which cannot be sent in open covers, may be enclosed in bags of linen or other material, tied at the neck; bags so closed that they cannot readily be opened, even although they be transparent, must not be used for this purpose. Non-compliance with this rule will also subject the packet to be detained or forwarded as an unpaid letter.

The Packets or the contents thereof must not contain any inclosure, sealed or otherwise closed against inspection.

In all other respects the general regulations of the Book Post will apply to the Pattern Post. Under these regulations, in order to prevent any interruption to the regular transmission of letters, a Packet of Patterns may, when it is necessary be kept back for the following Mail by which, in the ordinary course, it would be forwarded.

31

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 8TH FEBRUARY, 1868.

    The decision of the Postmaster General as to the eligibility of any Packet, pattern, or sample contained therein, to be forwarded under these regulations, will be final and conclusive.

    The rule which forbids the transmission through the Post of any article likely to injure the contents of the Mail Bags or Boxes, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office is, of course, applicable to the Pattern Post; and a packet containing anything of the kind will be stopped, and not sent to its destination. Articles such as the following have been occasionally posted as Patterns and have been detained as unfit for the Post, viz.: Metal boxes, porcelain and China, fruit, vegetables, bunches of flowers, cuttings of plants, spurs, knives, scissors, needles, pins, pieces of machinery, sharp pointed instruments, samples of metals, samples of ore, samples in glass bottles, pieces of glass, acids of various kinds, curry combs, copper and steel engraving, plates and confectionery of all kinds.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 14th February, 1868.

HONGKONG, 22nd January, 1868.

SIR,I have the honour to present to you the Annual Report on the Government Schools in this Colony for the year 1867, and in doing so I shall commence with the Village Schools.

2. I regret that I am not in a position to report much progress in these. Although I am quite satisfied that the children who attend these schools derive certain advantages from the purely Chinese education that they receive in them, it cannot be concealed that education in the Villages remains in a very unsatisfactory state.

;)

#

3. Whatever improvements may have been made in attendance, regularity, discipline, and attention to duty on the part of the Masters, there is still a sad want of intelligace among the children. To the simplest questions-"What do you call the part of your r body with which you see? "What is the organ of hearing?"-in the majority of cases no answer can be obtained. When, failing to get the desired answer in this way, one pomts to the characters for eye and ear and asks the use of these organs, they seem to have no conception of what they meat. Beyond the fact that the character pointed to has a certain sound they are in perfect ignorance of the idea which is attached to it.

    The following Annual Report on the state of the Government Schools in Hongkong for the Year 1867 is published for general information.

By Command,

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 14th February, 1868.

HONGKONG, 22nd January, 1868.

SIR,I have the honour to present to you the Annual Report on the Government Schools in this Colony for the year 1867, and in doing so I shall commence with the Village Schools.

2. I regret that I am not in a position to report much progress in these. Although I am quite satisfied that the children who attend these schools derive certain advantages from the purely Chinese education that they receive in them, it cannot be concealed that education in the Villages remains in a very unsatisfactory state.

3. Whatever improvements may have been made in attendance, regularity, discipline, and attention to duty on the part of the Masters, there is still a sad want of intelligace among the children. To the simplest questions-"What do you call the part of your r body with which you see? "What is the organ of hearing?"-in the majority of cases no answer can be obtained. When, failing to get the desired answer in this way, one pomts to the characters for eye and ear and asks the use of these organs, they seem to have no conception of what they meat. Beyond the fact that the character pointed to has a certain sound they are in perfect ignorance of the idea which is attached to it.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1868.

4. I have witnessed curious scenes on such occasions. Sometimes the Master will lose his temper at such displays of stupidity, and, taking up the question himself, try in vain to get an answer, even when he has communicated it in a whisper trusting that it may not be audible to me. And yet, some of these boys will repeat, without a single mistake, the "Four Books" of Confucius. In one instance, in the Hakka School at West Point, a boy brought up, on the examination day, an armful of books, consisting of the "Shi-king," portions of the "K?-man," the "Four-Books," the "Odes for Youth," and one or two others, some ten goodly volumes in all. When asked what he did with so many books he said he knew them all. He began with the "Four-Books," and, to my astonishment, went on repeating, as rapidly as lip and tongue could move, for a quarter of an hour when I thought it time to stop him. I believe he could have repeated the whole had there been time to listen to him. But this boy, whose powers of memory were so great, and whose application must have been intense, could not explain one word of all this which he must have so laboriously committed to memory.

5. It is almost impossible to get the Masters to understand that one-tenth of this, fully understood, would be infinitely more valuable to their scholars than such a Body of Chinese ethics which is wholly unintelligible to them. This weary plodding, day after day and year after year, in the sterile region of sound without one glimpse at the knowledge which it contains, produces the inevitable result, as conspicuous sometimes in 'the Master as in the Scholar,-an incapacity to evolve a single thought or idea beyond what has been handed down, by tradition, for ages.

6. The question is often asked-Why is this state of things allowed to continue, and why are not suitable books translated, and suitable Masters provided to teach them? In a Western country no question could be more natural, and great blame would attach to those who had the power to make the necessary reform without at least attempting it. To those who are unacquainted with Chinese literature and education it is almost impossible to explain why a reform cannot at once be made in Hongkong. I believe that every such attempt will fail until the Chinese as a nation come, by continued intercourse with the West, to have a higher idea of our civilization and institutions. To say nothing of the difficulty-in itself not an inconsiderable one, of getting the more appropriate lessons of English school books translated into Chinese,-and of training Masters, for that would be indispensable, to teach the schools,-one who knows anything of the people would pause before displacing Confucius by such works as these. Those who have seen the undisguised contempt with which an educated Chinese looks upon an English school book when he is made acquainted ith the nature of its contents will understand what I mean. Ignorant as the villagers are of even their own literature, and unable as they are to give any opinion on education, they have one potent argument in store which would defy contradiction-they would not send one of their children to school. 7. The comparative success of the Central School, where English school books are used, is no argument against what I have stated. I do not believe that one of the two hundred and odd boys in the school comes to be educated, in the proper sense of the word. Their only aim is to obtain such a knowledge of the English language as will enable them to get situations which prove more lucrative than any which they could hope to get without it. I am afraid that, before long, this will receive too disagreeable a confirmation. Complaints are often made by the boys of the difficulty they now have in getting employ- ment. The popularity of the school, therefore, would thus seem to depend very much, if not entirely, on the varying prosperity of the Colony, and not on the nature or amount of real instruction communicated in it.

8. I have sometimes been asked why the best scholars in the Central School were not trained as Masters for the Village Schools. These, it is said, with suitable school books in their hands, would completely meet the want that is felt, and the the present intractable race of Masters could then be dispensed with. It may appear strange to say that, in the meantime, this is impossible, but such, however, is the case. It would involve the necessity of a separate department in the school, with a separate Master for the work. This, it is evident, would entail a very considerable addition to the present Estimate for Education, with the probability, I might say, the certainty, that the special training thus to be given would, if it were through the medium of English, so familiarize the boys with the language that they would not accept such situations, and, if it were to be done through the medium of Chinese-in itself a need hardly say that scarcely one would be found willing difficulty, I to undergo it.

   9. I cannot doubt that the time will come, in the history of the Colony, when the Village Schools will in some such way, be supplied with Masters, and when the villagers will appreciate the ?ducation which such Masters would impart; but, for two very obvious reasons, this cannot be accomplished at present. The first is that the boys can get higher salaries elsewhere than Government could afford to pay them. The second is that the Chinese, to say nothing of the estimation in which they hold them as regards character, to which reference will be made hereafter, look upon them, in the meantime, as totally uneducated and unfit to teach their children.

   10. What has just been said, has been said, of course, judging the schools by a European standard. Looking at them, however, from another point of view, as schools, namely, where a Chinese education is given to Chinese children, there are one or two things to which more particular reference may be made. I stated last year why I thought these schools should be continued and encouraged, poor, in our estimation, though the education given in them be. It is painful to see the number of children in the Colony who seem to spend their whole time in the streets, generally at play, frequently at mischief, always watching for opportunities to pilfer, and thus commencing a career of idleness and crime. Could these children be made to attend school, the opportunity at least of doing evil would, so far, be removed. It were much better that they should be con- fined for the greater portion of the day in school, than that they should spend, as it is to be feared many of them do, the best part of their days in prison. Even on this ground, low though it be, the schools, well attended, would be of no mean ad- vantage to the well being of the Colony.

   11. If it could be possible to make the Chinese here feel a greater interest in the education of their children, and if they could be induced to send them regularly to school, the work of reformation would be more than begun. It would be much easier than to prevail on them to allow changes to be introduced than it is now when there is nothing but stolid indifference to appeal to. In many cases, the people do not conceal that they consider they are doing Government a favour by sending their children to its schools. It does not seem to occur to them that the advantage is at least mutual. I have had cases where a father has urged as a reason why some request of his should be granted that he sent his son to the Government school, and was therefore, doubtless, entitled to a favourable hearing.

12. As regards particular schools, I am sorry to find such a falling off at Tang-lung-chau. Two years ago, the attend- ance at this school was upwards of fifty. Now it is scarcely twenty. This state of things is not due entirely to the removal of many of the inhabitants from the neighbourhood but to a cause with which it is more difficult to deal. In the early part of last year, it was discovered that the Master was appropriating money which should have been spent in the payment of a Monitor to assist him in school, to the payment of his own servant. The case was a clear one against him and he was dis- missed. A petition, signed by many of the people, was then brought to me praying that the Master might be re-instated because he was a good teacher. The cause of his dismissal was completely ignored. When their request was refused, the scholars were sent to me in a body to ask that he should be allowed to return. No reasoning as to the flagrancy of his fault and his consequent unsuitability for such a trust as that of teaching the young had the slightest effect. They admitted most willingly that his conduct had been bad, but--he to a good teacher. Another and undoubtedly the best native Master we have, was sent to the school but one half of the children were withdrawn. Such are the people with whom we have to deal.

13. The most gratifying circumstance connected with the schools is the increasing interest that is now taken in female education. In addition to the Girls' School in Sheung-w?n with upwards of forty scholars, there is now another at Bowrington with upwards of seventeen. In several of the others, clso, there are from two to six girls. To whatever cause

?

it is to be attributed, it is curious to find that the girls make much more satisfactory progress than the boys. Neatness characterizes everything they do, and their handwriting, especially, attracts the admiration of those Chinese who have been shown it. In the school at Bowrington alone is needle-work taught, in addition to the ordinary routine of reading, writing and committing to memory, but I hope that it may soon be introduced into the other school also."

14. It is unnecessary, I trust, for me to state that English is carefully excluded from these schools. To the melancholy results which, in nearly every instance, have followed from teaching Chinese girls English I need not more particularly allude. Its effect on the character of the boys is not, I am sorry to find, what one could wish, but on the character of the girls it has proved to be fatal. And the son seems to be this, that coming, as they nearly all do, from the poorer classes, the care, such as they have never experiented before, which is taken of them, the comforts, to them luxuries, which they enjoy, and the so called accomplishments, which they are taught, totally unfit them for the sphere of life in which they would otherwise naturally remain, and out of which it is impossible for them to rise.

15. The only aim which is attempted to be reached in the Girls' schools, which are under Government control, is that of making them honest and useful in their own humble sphere, and I am happy to say, from enquiries which I have made, that - the effort to do this has not been unsuccessful. The Master of the school in Sheung-w?n tells me that the scholars who have left him, during the ten years in which it has been in existence, have, as a rule been respectably married in their own native Districts of N?m-hoi and P?'n-?.

     16. Further than stating that the Stanley school is, in the meantime, the most regularly attended and that a Girls' school may be established as soon as there is a suitable school-house, I do not think it necessary to do more at present in connection with the Village Schools than refer you to the statistics which are appended to this Report.

     17. I have now, in conclusion, only to refer to the Central School, and, in doing so, I shall be very brief, as no important changes have been made or results reached beyond those previously reported.

     18. The attendance was well sustained during the year. It is a matter of some surprise to me that it was so; for, in the first place, the chances of obtaining situations have lately been rapidly diminishing, and in the second, it is not to be concealed that the classes are by far too large for only two En lish Masters, with the additional duty of inspecting the Village Schools devolving on one of them. The progress of the boys is certainly not what it ought to be, or what I should like to see it. Strangers who pay a casual visit may find some cause for commendation, but those who are daily engaged in the actual working of the school find much that is unsatisfactory, and which either an additional Master or decreased attendance would materially remedy.

19. In previous Reports I have referred to this difficulty. I had hoped that ere this time the Revenue of the Colony. would be in a condition to admit of the appointment of another English Master but I fear such a proposition cannot, in the meantime, be entertained. I content myself therefore, under the circumstances, with saying that nothing could more contribute to the efficiency of the school, and that it will not be efficient without it.

20. Allusion has already been made to the main source of the apparent popularity of the school--the means of money- making which are derived from a knowledge of English. In another respects, I was sorry to be told lately by one who has opportunities of knowing that those Chinese who have no sons at the school look upon the boys in anything but a favourable light. By giving themselves airs, by affecting a superiority they do not possess, by forming clubs, to the exclusion of those who do not know English, where all sorts of dissipation exist, the boys do not place the character of the school or the results of the training which is attempted to be given them in the light which those, whose time and energy are spent in their behalf, have perhaps a right to expect. When one thinks, however, of even the effects of Christianity itself, in its earlier stages, and that one Church in particular which had much to commend it had to be seriously cautioned, among other things, against a propensity to steal, one needs not despair at finding may things to annoy and disappoint in the promotion of Education in Hongkong. Like civilization, or any other moral and intellectual change, education is a comparative term which bears a relation not to this arbitrary standard or to that, but to the particular mental condition of the people among whom it is being disseminated. From the six years' experience I have now had of the work, I do not expect to find any great or lasting results in my time. My only hope is that, at the close of my connection with the schools, I may have done something which my successor will not have to undo.-I have the honour to be, Sir, your most obedient Servant,

AS REGARDS PATTERNS.

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

     There must be no writing or marks other than the address of the person for whom the packet is intended, a trade mark and numbers, and prices of the articles; otherwise the Packet will be detained or forwarded charged as an unpaid letter."

The Patterns must be sent in covers open at the ends, so as to be easy of examination. Samples however, of seeds, drugs, and so forth, which cannot be sent in open covers, may be enclosed in bags of linen or other material, tied at the neck; bags so closed that they cannot readily be opened, even although they be transparent, must not be used for this purpose. Non-compliance with this rule will also subject the packet to be detained or forwarded as an unpaid letter.

     The Packets or the contents thereof must not contain any inclosure, sealed or otherwise closed against inspection.

In all other respects the general regulations of the Book Post will apply to the Pattern Post. Under these regulations, in order to prevent any interruption to the regular transmission of letters, a Packet of Patterns may, when it is necessary be kept back for the following Mail by which, in the ordinary course, it would be forwarded.

The decision of the Postmaster Genera' as to the eligibility of any Packet, pattern, or sample contained therein, to be forwarded under these regulations, will be final and conclusive.

     The rule which forbids the transmission through the Post of any article likely to injure the contents of the Mail Bags or Boxes, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office is, of course, applicable to the Pattern Post; and a packet containing anything of the kind will be stopped, and not sent to its destination. Articles such as the following have been occasionally posted as Patterns and have been detained as unfit for the Post, viz.: Metal boxes, porcelain and China, fruit, vegetables, bunches of flowers, cuttings of plants, spurs, knives, scissors, needles, pins, pieces of machinery, sharp pointed instruments, samples of metals, samples of ore, samples in glass bottles, pieces of glass, acids of various kinds, curry combs, copper and steel engraving, plates and confectionery of all kinds.

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

    The Colonial Surgeon's Report, with Returns on the Sanitary Condition of the Colony for the Year 1867, is published for general information.

By Command,

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 22nd February, 1868.

                                  VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 15th February, 1868. My Ninth Annual Report, which records the Sanitary condition of the Colony during the Year 1867, bears witness to the steady progress which Hongkong has made during the past ten years. I had proposed to embody on this occasion a historical r?sum? of the health of the Colony from its first foundation, pointing out as far as possible to what causes might be referred the sickness to which Hongkong was at one time peculiarly liable, and recording the important prophylactic measures taken from time to time by this Government, which have tended in no small degree to bring about the remarkable improvement now experienced. Unfortunately I found that so little attention had been given to recording the statistics of life in the Colony, previous to the last ten years, that no amount of labor would enable me to prepare such a Report as I should desire, or one the accuracy even of which could be depended upon. I have therefore been compelled to limit myself to the prepara- tion of certain tables, to which I shall more fully refer hereafter. But every year I have greater reason to regret that no system exists for the effectual Registration of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. In regard to the Deaths of Europeans this want is more important than at first sight appears, and I think might very readily be obviated by forbidding interments without the production of a proper Medical Certificate of the cause of death, and the duration of the disease &c., somewhat in the form drawn up under the directions of the Registrar General of England and Wales, see Table XXI. These Certificates, handed over to the Colonial Surgeon, would enable him to compile a really valuable and instructive Report, and would cost the Government nothing beyond the paper and printing.

                                  VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 15th February, 1868. My Ninth Annual Report, which records the Sanitary condition of the Colony during the Year 1867, bears witness to the steady progress which Hongkong has made during the past ten years. I had proposed to embody on this occasion a historical r?sum? of the health of the Colony from its first foundation, pointing out as far as possible to what causes might be referred the sickness to which Hongkong was at one time peculiarly liable, and recording the important prophylactic measures taken from time to time by this Government, which have tended in no small degree to bring about the remarkable improvement now experienced. Unfortunately I found that so little attention had been given to recording the statistics of life in the Colony, previous to the last ten years, that no amount of labor would enable me to prepare such a Report as I should desire, or one the accuracy even of which could be depended upon. I have therefore been compelled to limit myself to the prepara- tion of certain tables, to which I shall more fully refer hereafter. But every year I have greater reason to regret that no system exists for the effectual Registration of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. In regard to the Deaths of Europeans this want is more important than at first sight appears, and I think might very readily be obviated by forbidding interments without the production of a proper Medical Certificate of the cause of death, and the duration of the disease &c., somewhat in the form drawn up under the directions of the Registrar General of England and Wales, see Table XXI. These Certificates, handed over to the Colonial Surgeon, would enable him to compile a really valuable and instructive Report, and would cost the Government nothing beyond the paper and printing.

the hongkong government gAZETTE, 22ND FEBRUARY, 1868.

   The Year 1866 I described in my last Report as "the mildest and most healthy year the Colony has passed through for a very long period" and it is with peculiar satisfaction that I find myself able to state that 1867 has surpassed its predecessor in salubrity nearly as much as 1866 had exceeded 1865. Indeed it is very gratifying to examine Table XI and find the death of only 56 Residents recorded, giving the low ratio of Mortality of 2.60 per cent, or little more than half of the average rate of the last ten years, or than one third of the average rate recorded since 1845 as seen in Table XIV.

The epidemic of Yellow Fever which occurred during the years 1865 and 1866, and which proved so fatal in Gaol, in Hospital, and among the poor of the town, was all but unknown in 1867; only one doubtful case having been recorded as occurring in Victoria Gaol, while not a single case of this disease was admitted into the Government Civil Hospital.

It is only justice to the memory of my predecessor in office, Mr. Morrison, to state that in his Annual Report for 1847 he drew attention to the resemblance which some cases of Hongkong Remittent Fever presented to the Yellow Fever of the West Indies, as I also did in my Report for 1863. He appears however not to have extended his researches in this direction, and no such epidemics as recorded in my last two Reports seem to have come under his observation.

   Small Pox, which may be said to be endemic to Hongkong in the cold weather, was first seen in the Civil Hospital on the 13th January, the last case admitted being received from a vessel of war on the 5th June. In February Her Majesty's Ship Princess Royal arrived from Japan with Small Pox on board-56 cases were disembarked into the Convict Gaol at Stone Cutter's Island, which was placed at the disposal of the Naval Authorities by the Colonial Government, into a Gunboat fitted up as a Hospital, and into the Seamen's Hospital-of the whole number 4 died. Up to the present date no case has been admitted this winter into the Civil Hospital, although I understand several have been received into the Seamen's Hospital. This disease raged among the Chinese population at Kowloon during the months of March and April, where it was said to have proved very fatal, while there were comparatively few cases in Victoria; but in the following month it attacked the Portuguese residing in the less healthy parts of the town-such as the neighbourhood of Bridges Street-and there it com- mitted considerable havoc.

It appears to me that there exist unhappy facilities for the propagation of this and other infectious diseases in this Colony, and, having reference to the action taken by the Lords of the Privy Council under authority of the "Diseases Preven- tion Act, 1855," I believe that great benefit would arise to the Community if Medical Practitioners were obliged to report the occurrence of all cases of infectious disease to the Colonial Surgeon, or such other Health Officer as might be appointed, with whom the power should rest-either independently, or in conjunction with a Board of Health to order such case into Hospital, or to take such steps as might be deemed advisable for the isolation of the infected persons, and, at the same time, have the premises in which the disease occurred thoroughly disinfected-I have so frequently seen Small Pox recurrent year by year in the same locality that I believe some such course as I have just recommended to be essential to the well-being of the Colony.

  As bearing upon this subject the question of compulsory Vaccination demands attention. It is very evident that, as long as the population of this Colony is as migratory as at present, and while Vaccination is so little known on the mainland, no system for compelling the adoption of this precaution could be enforced, but it is not the less possible to encourage it, to a great extent, by the establishment of Public Vaccinators, who should be paid for their succesful cases only, and by insisting on all persons in Government employ undergoing the trifling operation. By such means something might be done to lessen the number of the valuable lives that succumb to the fearful scourge of Small Pox.

The next subject deserving of notice is the action taken under the "Order and Cleanliness Ordinance," of 1867, by which the liquors sold by the Tavern keepers were submitted to rigid analysis. The character of the liquors was found to be less noxious than had been feared, but a good effect was derived from warning the dealers of the penalty they incurred, and it is probable that the exhibitions of frantic madness produced by the adulterated spirits formerly supplied by unscrupulous dealers will soon become only matter of past record.*

The diseases most prevalent and the most dangerous to life in Hongkong, are undoubtedly Fever-usually of the Remittent type, of which happily there have occurred but few cases last year-Dysentery, Diarrhoea, and diseases of the bowels. Acute Dysentery however is in some cases not sufficiently distinguished from a form of acute inflammation of the rectum, and the correct treatment by large doses of ipecacuan, which proves so successful in the former disease, affords no relief in the latter. It is not always easy to distinguish between the two diseases in the acute stage, and still more difficult when the case assumes the Chronic form.?

The Chinese are remarkable for the peculiarly friable nature of their spleen, so rendering that organ extremely liable to rupture upon the application of slight violence--so very slight indeed, as to leave no external trace on the body. On several occasions I have had to describe in a Court of Justice the condition of this organ as presenting the appearance of a rotten apple or gourd, which had been squashed by a blow. A somewhat singular instance of this peculiar affection was seen in the case of an European Seamen, a notorious drunkard, who got into a disturbance at the Sailor's Home, and whose spleen was ruptured in the struggle to eject him. The Constable had to stand his trial for manslaughter, but was acquitted as there was no evidence that the man had even been struck in the region of the spleen.

On the 7th and 8th September, and again on the 30th September and 1st October, the island was visited by typhoons which did great damage to the shipping in harbor and the buildings in the Town-but still greater damage to the health giving trees which are so highly cherished, and can be but badly spared. Any one knowing how much the great improve- ment in the state of Health of Hongkong is, at least coincident with the planting and growth of the trees that now adorn it, must have grieved at the havoc a few hours effected, and which years will not repair-what may be the resulting loss of salubrity sustained is not easily estimated.

I shall now proceed to make a few remarks on the condition of the various Institutions of which it is my duty to take cognizance in my Annual Report.

I. THE POLICE.

Numerically this Force is not much above what it was last year-but both the European and Indian element have in- creased at the expense of the Chinese. The death rate is therefore somewhat in excess of what it was in 1866, but still the average is under that of the ordinary residents. The rate of sickness is much lower than it was last year. Considering the nature of the duties to be performed, and the manner in which the men are liable to be exposed to night air and other morbific influences, and the fact that one third of the entire mortality is due to consumption, I consider the result very favorable. The Sikh element, while it has improved the general appearance and bearing of the Force, has not added to its health. It is dif ficult to assign a correct reason for the result, but the fact remains indisputable, that men under military discipline are unhealthy in proportion as they diverge from the character of the true civilian.

* The unlicensed Chinese retailers of Samshu will however still require the utmost vigilance on the part of the Police.

It may, however, be fairly diagnosed as the local affection, if, without other premonitory symptom, an acute pain referred to the rectum suddenly attacks the patient, and usually at night, a desire to empty the bowel being followed by violent spasms, producing excruciating pain and burning, even in some cases causing syncope, and followed either by a copious discharge of blood, or of a mucous fluid-and all these symptoms without the previous existence of h?morrhoids, or other local cause of irritation. At first it is almost impossible to relieve the suffering, owing to the spasmodic action of the sphincter, but a sitz bath as hot as the patient can submit to soon allows of the use of warm enemata, which, in the few cases I have seen, have acted beneficially-and by rest, and maintenance of the heat for a sufficient length of time, the disease has been arrested-but where the case becomes chronic and a greater number of such instances have come under my notice than of acute inflammation,I have found the electuary of sulphur, internally, with injections of acetate of lead and opium, or Gallic Acid suppositories, the most successful treatment. It is not easy to assign a cause for the disease. but it is of the utmost importance to distinguish it when met with.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 22ND FEBRUARY, 1868.

Table I-Shews the number of admissions into, and deaths in, the Hospital, of Members of the Police Force, during every month of 1867.

            It will be seen that the greatest number of admissions took place in June and October. The latter month is always the most unhealthy, but September usually ranks next to it. It would appear that men are able to go through the extreme heat of summer but break down with the change of the monsoon.

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. Heffernan, Deputy Inspector General of Hospitals, and 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 further improvement in this respect has taken place among the Military last year, the rate of sickness being less than two thirds, and the rate of death sensibly lowered. The present Return is more interesting than usual, as the numbers refer to a body of men scarcely double that of the Police Force.

Table XV-Shews the rate per cent of Sickness and Mortality in the Police Force, from the year 1845 to 1867, with the exception of the four years from 1854 to 1857, of which there are no sufficient data. By this table the singular result is shewn that in 1848, when the lowest rate of sickness was attained, the highest rate of Mortality was indicated, a rate seven times what it was last year-but, as nineteen of the deaths are accounted for by the typhoon of that year, the rate is reduced to 3.80 per cent or less than double that of 1867.

Table XVI--Shews the number of cases of Infectious disease occurring among the Police during the last seven years, with a classification of the special nature of the disease--an examination of this table reveals the important fact that a steady im- provement in this respect has been going on in this body of men, that in the year 1867 the rate of sickness to the whole strength was only 14.13 per cent, against 31.00 per cent in 1862-and that the diminution of disease has taken plaec especially under the head of Chancre and Bubo, the two most dangerous forms for the general health of the Force.

II. THE GOVERNMENT CIVIL HOSPITAL.

    Deficient as this Institution is in every essential for the effectual treatment of disease, it is with peculiar pleasure that I am able to point to the last year's results, which are mainly attributable to the zeal and fidelity with which Dr. Cochran, the Superintendent, performs his arduous duties. It is not creditable to a Colony which was only lately considered one of the wealthiest of its size, that it possesses no Colonial Government Hospital worthy of the name, and that the only provision for the treatment of the sick is a mere make shift of an altered dwelling, without even the means of supplying hot baths at a moment's notice, and to which it is impossible to adapt any of the modern therapeutic improvements. This state of matters will not, I believe, be of long duration, as His Excellency the Governor, appreciating the necessity of supplying the proper means for successful treatment, has, I understand, already taken preliminary steps to prevent the Government Civil Hospital continuing to be pointed at by visitors as the one public Institution which is unworthy of inspection. Nor is it fair to the Police, in whose interest the Hospital was originally established, to transfer them for treatment of disease to Worse quarters than are afforded by their own new barracks.

    It is gratifying to refer to Table IX, which presents a summary of the result of treatment in the Government Civil Hospital from the year 1849 to 1867, both inclusive, with the exception of an interval of five years between 1852 and 1858, of which there appears to be no records. Nor are there any previous to the year 1819. By this table it may be seen that out of 9,516 cases, treated in 14 years, 910 died, thus giving an average Mortality of 9.57 per cent and that the average of 1867, viz. 7.56 per cent-has been lower than any year recorded since 1862, and only exceeds the three years 1860-61 and 62,

    On reference to Table V, which gives the rate of Mortality during the last nine years, distinguishing that in the case of Europeans from Colored Persons and Chinese, it will be seen that in no year registered has the rate been so low among Europeans as during the past one, when it only reached 4.70 per cent of the cases admitted, the year which approached it nearest in point of success being 1862. A result almost as satisfactory is recorded in reference to Chinese.

    Table IV-which gives the number of admissions into and the Mortality in this Hospital during the year 1867, explains to some extent the improvement. Among the Europeans the admissions for Remittent Fever have not been half as numerous as in 1866, and only one death is noted from this disease. Typhoid Fever has not been seen at all, whereas in 1866 two deaths were attributed to this cause. No case of Delirium Tremens has proved fatal among the Europeans admitted: in 1866 no less than 4 died. Apoplexy leaves an equal blank this year-of Disease of the Heart only one case terminated fatally, against 4 in 1866. On the other hand Small Pox, Phthisis and Hepatitis have been treated with less success in 1867 than in the preceding year.

    Among the Chinese patients the great improvement may be mainly attributed to the milder form of Diarrhoea and Dysentery, to the total absence of Yellow Fever, of which no less than 30 cases proved fatal in 1866, and to the smaller number of Phthisical patients admitted. Under the head of Starvation it is melancholy to find an equal number of patients dying as in 1866, viz.: 17.

    The increased Mortality among the colored people admitted may be said to be entirely owing to the reception of an unusual number of cases of Phthisis, of which no less than three of the fatal cases were from the Indian Police, or equal to one fourth of the entire Mortality of the Force.

    Table VI-Kindly sent me by the Resident Surgeon, Dr. Adams, gives information in reference to the Seamen's Hospital. The admissions appear to have slightly exceeded those of 1866, as 324 to 313, the number of deaths being exactly the same in both years, viz. 29, and the death rate consequently somewhat lower as 8.95 per cent against 9.26 per cent in 1866. In this Return no distinction is drawn between Europeans, Colored persons, and Chinese-but as I am led to believe that almost the whole of the patients belong to the two former nationalities it would appear that the death rate has been nearly double what it has been in the Government Civil Hospital for Europeans and Colored persons, and even greater than that of the three classes together.

    During the past year several chronic cases were received into the Government Civil, from the Seamen's Hospital-cases which could only terminate in one manner-it is to be regretted that such cases should be transferred at all. One was that of a man suffering from chronic Dysentery, who had contracted Small Pox before his reception into the Government Civil Hospital, as the latter disease made its appearance within five days of his admission-and he died of it.

    Although I do not propose entering on the subject of treatment of disease in general, the successful use of small doses of the Chlorate of Potash, in the treatment of Secondary Syphilitic affections, deserves to be recorded among the events of the year.

    During 1867 the Harbor Master sent home 11 invalids from Hospital, and the Italian Consul 2 suffering from Phthisis. This is the greatest number ever sent from the Government Civil Hospital, and, as much has been said on the subject, I cannot omit to point out the absolute necessity there exists for the Harbor Master retaining this power. I would even go farther, and, in the interests of humanity, urge the desirability of the power being extended to a greater degree. There can be no doubt that many valuable lives might be saved if the system of invaliding adopted in the Army and Navy extended to the Merchant service. At present invalids have to wait so long before a suitable vessel can be found to afford them a passage, that the chance of effecting good is often past, but that they should have the chance, although it may be a small one, of preserving their lives is not to be denied, even although the Masters or the Surgeons of the Vessels compelled to afford them a passage complain of the trouble or annoyance. Vessels carrying such invalids should be required to supply a proper sick- berth, and afford kind and careful Hospital treatment-but, to carry out such a system it would be necessary for the Home Government to legislate, in the interest of the shipowner and sanction an indemnification to him which would, however, prove, in the long run profitable to the country.

56

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 22ND FEBRUARY, 1868.

   Table XVII-Shews the number of dead bodies brought to the Government Civil Hospital for examination, with the cause of death in all cases where it could be ascertained. It will be observed that 12 are entered under the head of suffocation, caused by the numerous landslips which took place last year, 14 under the head of drowning, the result, to a great extent, of the two typhoons by which the Colony was visited.

III. THE GAOL.

   Table VII Shews the number of admissions into the Gaol Hospital, and deaths there, during the year 1867, with the average number of admissions and deaths during the past 10 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 1867.

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

Europeans Indians

The daily average was 42718 of which number 14 died. In 1866 the total number of prisoners was 5,461: the daily average 5842, and the deaths 70. In 1866 the greatest number any one day in Gaol was on the 13th November,

   The means described in my last year's Report as having been adopted to check the number of cases of Ulcer have proved so efficient that only 13 admissions to Hospital under this head are recorded in 1867, against 281 in 1866, of these 13 ad- missions in 1867, two terminated fatally; in 1866 there were 16 deaths from Ulcer. It is however necessary to keep the strictest watch upon the prisoners to prevent them from injuring themselves, with the object of escaping from the now really heavy work in the chain gangs, and which they occasionally succeed in accomplishing, even in spite of the greatest care taken of them, and the important improvement in the formation and finish of the irons lately imported from England.

   Remittent Fever has proved the source of the greatest Mortality, there were 45 admissions to Hospital, and 4 deaths, among the Chinese from this cause.

   The deterrent effect of the public flogging which was at one time of monthly occurrence has been shewn by the fact that it has not been necessary to go through this ceremony for the last six months.

   Table XVIII-Shews the rate of sickness and Mortality in Victoria Gaol from the year 1845 to the year 1867, with the exception of the four years from 1854 to 1857, both inclusive, of which no records appear to have been kept. By this table it will be seen that the past year has shewn the smallest Mortality, in reference to the total number of prisoners, in any but the two years 1859 and 1860.

   The building is, as usual, a model of cleanliness and good order. Under the management of the present able Superinten- dent many improvements have been made during the last twelve months, and that principally with the convict labor. The Hall and Yards have been relaid with beautifully smooth granite, neatly cemented, which does not retain the dirt and moisture in the same manner as the roughly hewn stone pavement formerly employed. Sheds have either been built, or are in course of erection, round three sides of the open yards, which will prove of great benefit in protecting the prisoners in those yards, either for purposes of exercise or labor, from the effects of sun and rain. Open ironwork gates have been placed at the end of each passage, so as to permit of better classification, and greater safety of the prisoners. A similar arrangement replaces the old wooden doors of the cells, and, v. hen completed, will nearly double the cubic space of air allotted to each prisoner, beides insuring a better watch over his movements, and, lastly, gas is being introduced throughout the establishment, which, while it adds to the cleanliness and security of the Gaol, materially assists the care and attention to the sick.

IV. THE LOCK HOSPITAL,

   It is my intention to devote a much larger portion than usual of my Report to this institution, and the working of the present Ordinance for the check of infectious disease. That Ordinance has been on trial for nearly ten years, and has done singular service, and it is only justice to it's framers to record it's working, before the more perfected legislation of last year becomes the law of the Colony. This is rendered the mere incumbent on me in consequence of the apparent ignorance of those even who should be better acquainted with its details, as was shewn in the evidence given before the committee appointed to enquire into the means of reducing Venereal Disease in the Army and Navy, the port of which was erly published last year. The ignorance therein displayed by Medical Officers who had served in China is most remarkable, eg. one gentleman expresses it as his opinion that the Prostitutes in Chia are dirtier than in England, whereas the reverse is notoriously the

Another Medical Officer, who, in 1863, more than endorsed the undermentioned opinions, is doubtful about the success of the Hongkong system when he comes to be examined before the committee.* In opposition to the evidence obtained by the committee I shall now record a few deliberate expressions of opinion on the part of officers fully qualified to express them- selves on the subject.

Deputy Inspector General Dr. Home, formerly Principal Military Medical Officer here, and who had experience of the Colony before the introduction of the Ordinance, as well as after, writes to me in February, 1863: "on behalf of the Army "Medical Officers stationed here, I have pleasure in expressing to you the great advantage we have derived from the excellent sanitary arrangements in force in regard to Prostitution. Venereal disease, from being but a few years ago one of the most common causes of unfitness for duty here, has now become of comparatively rare occurrence."

((

    The evidence of Dr. Bernard, Deputy Inspector General of Hospitals and Fleets, conveyed to me in a letter dated 27th January last, is even more satisfactory: he writes. "I am enabled to say that true Syphilis is now rarely contracted by our "men in Hongkong."

    Table XI-Is an approximative estimate of the Mortality among Foreign Residents in Hongkong during the last ten years. The data from which it is compiled are furnished to me, so far as the number of Residents is concerned, by the Registrar General, and by the Sextons of the two cemeteries, so far as the deaths are concerned. This table does not embrace Soldiers, Sailors, whether employed in the Navy or the Merchant Service, or those who have been buried from the Hospitals. Table XIV, already referred to at the commencement of this Report, gives similar information, as far as it could be collected, from the year 1845 to the present date, by which it will appear that 1862 alone stood higher in the scale of salubrity than 1867. It must not, however, be forgotten, in drawing up statistical tables of the Health of this Colony, that the character of the population is by no means analogous to that of England, that there are comparatively few females and children among the Resident Foreigners, the two combined not equalling in number the adult males, that paupers are not numerous, and that, for the most part those suffering from chronic sickness are sent away from the Island, still I believe that after making every allowance, the result will compare favorably with that of any other settlement of similar extent situated on the verge of the Tropics.

Table XII-Gives the usual information regarding the work performed by the Inspectors of Nuisances attached to this Department.

Table XIII-Shews the annual mean state of the atmosphere during the year 1867, as recorded at the Government Civil Hospital.

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

* And as if ignorance was courted, I find it stated in the Report of the Health of the Royal Navy for 1863, in reference to Hongkong:- "the Sanitary regulations that were for some years enforced with good effect have lately been greatly neglected, and are now, I believe, scarcely "attended to in any particular."!!!

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

     The following Report of the Harbor Master, with Returns annexed for the Year 1867, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 7th March, 1868.

SIR,

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

HARBOR MASTER'S DEPARTMENT, VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 19th February, 1868.

1. I have the honor to enclose the undermentioned Annual Returns of the Shipping and other matters connected with the Marine Department of this Colony.

I. Number, Tonnage and Crews of Vessels, entered at Ports in Hongkong from each Country in the Year 1867. II. Number, Tonnage and Crews of Vessels, cleared at Ports in the Colony of Hongkongt o each Country in the Year 1867. III. Number, Tonnage and Crews of Vessels, of each Nation entered at Ports in the Colony of Hongkong in the Year 1867. IV. Number, Tonnage and Crews of Vessels, of each Nation cleared at Ports in the Colony of Hongkong in the Year 1867. V.

VII. Return of Junks entered at the Port of Victoria from the Outstations of the Island and the Villages in British

XII. Return of Emigrant Ships cleared by the Emigration Officer, Hongkong, during the Year ending 31st December, 1867. XIII. Return of Vessels bringing Chinese Passengers to the Port of Victoria, Hongkong, from places out of China,

SHIPPING.

      2. This is the first occasion on which the Arrivals and Departures of the Canton and Macao Steamers, and of the native Junks trading between this Port and the Ports of China, &c., are included in the Returns. The grand total, conse- quently, exhibits a very large increase on the Year 1866, of 21,337 Vessels with 1,612,672 tons entered, and 20,989 Vessels with 1,593,769 tons cleared, or that of Foreign trade, a grand total of 42,326 more Vessels with a capacity of 3,206,441 tons and manned by 602,781 Seamen were Registered in the books of this Office in 1867, than were noted in the preceding Year.

      3. It must not be taken that these figures indicate a positive increase to the trade of the Colony, but rather that recent legislation has in addition to other important matters (hereafter treated of) enabled this Department to keep more detailed and accurate accounts than previously of the amount of trade actually being done between this Port and Foreign Countries. But extraneous of the tonnage thus added, there has been an increase in the gross trade of the Colony during the Year, amounting to 9,118 tons; this increase is in a great measure due to the establishment of the Pacific Mail Steam-Ship Company and to the increased steam Coasting trade with China. There is a decrease of 29,484 tons, in the trade between this Port and British India, which is somewhat due to the Abyssinian campaign; Her Majesty's Government having engaged some of the Vessels, usually frequenting Hongkong, to carry Troops and Stores for the expedition.

4. In view of the general unsatisfactory condition of the mercantile world, the Returns of Shipping, other than in Chinese bottoms, evince a better result than could have been anticipated.

JUNK TRADE.—“ Harbor and Coasts Ordinance, No. 6 of 1866."

?

      5. It will be gratifying to Her Majesty's Government to know of the great success, which has attended the introduc- tion of this very important Ordinance. Previous to, and for some time subsequent to its inauguration, it was surmised by many that the effect of this Law would be to drive the owners and Masters of Junks from the pursuit of a legitimate trade, to

88

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 7TH MARCH, 1868.

follow a career of piracy; but the Returns accompanying this Report prove how erroneous and groundless those fears and doubts were. I trust it may not be considered out of place to give a slight description of the measures adopted with a view to impressing on the Chinese mind that the new order of things was not opposed to the freedom of trade, but was intended to ensure it a greater amount of protection than it had hitherto enjoyed.

   6. By the 1st of January, 1867, the day on which the Ordinance was proclaimed to take effect, the Junks with but few exceptions had left the harbors of Victoria, Sowkewan, Stanley and Aberdeen. Those which remained were immediately moved into their proper anchorages and their Masters were informed that they could not proceed to sea without previously obtaining Port Clearances. Only a few vessels bringing a small quantity of fuel and provisions for the markets, and some boats to load granite arrived during the first few days. This reduction in the supplies soon showed itself in the increased price of all articles required for immediate consumption, but the Chinese in their calculations for starving the Government into a repeal of the new Law, if such ever was their idea, soon saw that the Colony was not depending on their Junks for its ordinary supply of food, as the steamers of the Hongkong, Canton and Macao Steam-boat Company were able to bring large quantities, and if it had become necessary, doubtless other European vessels would have been ready to assist. However, the natives could not afford to leave their vessels idle and soon began to make enquiries as to what real injury (if any) was likely to happen to them if they resumed their trade. As each owner came forward for information, the object of the Law was care- fully and patiently explained to them. From their looks of surprise on finding the real nature of the Law, it was evident their minds had been filled with stories totally at variance with the object and intention of the Government. Their objections soon resolved themselves into two only. The first was the too-frequent reporting at this Office by those Vessels whose business led them into Port five or six times a month, and the second objection was the having to find security before a License could be issued. The first objection was met by granting the Licensee a monthly "Special Permit" exempting him from reporting in person more frequently than was necessary to change his Permit, and the second objection was met by adapting the amounts of the bonds to the importance and nature of the trade of the Vessels desirous of obtaining Licenses. In the meanwhile the Officers of the Department were actively engaged afloat here and at the Outstations to see that no breach of the Law took place. By these means and by a careful exercise of the powers invested in the Magistrates in the cases of offenders, the Law and its object soon became extensively circulated amongst the natives, and applicants rapidly came forward for Licenses, and that part of the Harbor and the line of the Praya frequented by Junks soon became as full and active as ever. There are now 364 Licensed trading Junks, measuring in the aggregate 27,524 tons manned by 3,940 Chinese; but in addition to this, a far larger number of other Junks trade to this Colony, obtaining the necessary Anchorage and Clearance Documents on each visit.

7. During the Year the total number of Chinese Vessels entered inwards engaged in Foreign trade was 20,787, measuring 1,367,702 tons with crews consisting of 281,897 men, and there were entered outwards 20,443 vessels with 1,353,700 tons, and crews of 278,725 men. These Vessels trade with 37 Ports West and South of Hongkong, and with 33 Ports to the East and North of Hongkong. Their cargoes consist of Opium, Rice, Cotton, British and Foreign Manufactures, Earthen- ware, Granite, Lime, Peas, Salt Fish, &c., besides bringing Firewood, Cattle, Poultry, Fruit and Vegetables, &c., for the subsistence of a resident population of 117,471 souls.

8. The owners of the numerous Fishing Boats in the vicinity of the Colony also hesitated for some time before they could be induced to return to the Ports of the Island and sent their fish to the markets by means of small boats, but they soon found that to be a slow and unprofitable process. The several Inspectors at Victoria and at the Outstations were directed to visit the Fishing Junks in their neighbourhood to explain to their owners the object of the Law. These boats eventually returned and there are now 1,444 of them licensed, with a carrying capacity equal to 48,838 tons and crews composing of 6,136 men.

9. The before mentioned Junks (with the exception of the Fishing ones), are those connected with the Foreign Trade only, (i.e. they trade to places outside of Hongkong and its Dependencies) but there is a daily traffic between Victoria and the various Villages of the Colony by Junks conveying Passengers and supplies. These amount to 10,774 Vessels, 319,208 tons and 43,483 crews entered and 10,832 Vessels, 321,863 tons and 43,647 crews cleared during the Year under review; consequently the Foreign and local trade of this Colony in Junks alone (except those engaged in Fishing) amount to 31,561 Vessels, 1,686,910 tons and 325,380 men entered; and 31,275 Vessels, 1,675,563 tons and 322,372 men cleared, or a grand total of 62,836 Vessels, 3,362,473 tons and 647,752 Chinese seamen.

10. The introduction of the Harbor and Coasts Ordinance has led to a large increase to the Staff and to the labor of this Department.

11. As each of the 31,561 Junks arrived in the various Ports of Hongkong in 1867, she was boarded and a full description of her Guns, Arms, Ammunition, &c., was taken and a record kept of them. In addition to this the greater por-. tion of the 1,444 Fishing Junks which are licensed come in or leave the Ports almost daily during the winter months. At Stanley I have seen as many as 300 of these boats arrive in the evening and all leave the following morning. Of course it is impossible to visit the whole of them in so short a time, but as many as can be, are boarded and as the Vessels are taken indiscriminately the check on any misconduct should be complete. A full description of all licensed native craft is kept on record, and they are so frequently boarded, that the Officers are able to see that no change takes place in their respective fittings.

12. Besides the afloat work there have been 36,713 documents issued in the various Offices.

13. I am glad to be able to report that the fees collected have been found sufficient to cover the expenses of the Ordinance.

14. Fifty-one trials have taken place under this Ordinance, but in very rare instances was it proved that the charges preferred were otherwise than the result of ignorance of the Law.

15. The Outstations have been frequently visited by the Assistant Harbor Master and myself in the Colonial Tender and other means of conveyance. The former has answered her purpose as well as could be expected, but being a Junk her movements are slow and it is at times inconvenient to be away from the Harbor of Victoria for any length of time. A vessel with steam power would enable the Department to perform the duties required by the Ordinance with greater expedition and the visits to the creeks and bays round the Island would be more frequent and consequently of more value as a help in the work of checking piracy.

16. From the following list it may be fairly presumed that the effect of this Ordinance has been to produce as good results as its warmest supporters could have hoped, for it will be observed that while piracy has sensibly decreased, attacks on European vessels have entirely ceased, but it will be difficult to ensure the complete suppression of Piracy until either a total disarmament of all native vessels shall be assented to, or the whole Coast of China shall be blockaded by men-of-war.

18. There can also be little doubt that the result of the new Law has been to keep many evil disposed persons out of Hongkong. Formerly there was good reason to suppose that Piratical vessels were fitted out in this Harbor. Free trade amongst Junks had become free License and these piratical pests of our waters had unmolested ingress and egress at all hours of the day or night. Under the existing system the certainty of being boarded on arrival and the uncertainty as to the number of times the Junks are likely to be visited whilst lying here, check the operations of any Chinese who may be meditating aggressive measures on Vessels at sea.

19. In concluding that part of my Report which has reference to the Arrivals and Departures of Vessels, I insert a statement of all vessels Foreign and Native (exclusive of Fishing Junks) that have entered and left the Ports of the Colony during the Year of which this Report treats.

or, including Sundays, 185.5 Vessels enter and leave these waters daily.

20. Besides the cargoes brought by the above mentioned Vessels they have also brought 429,079 Chinese Passengers to Victoria, and a somewhat less number have left by the same means. This would make it appear that the population of Hongkong has not increased to any great extent. But the Arrivals and Departures of Chinese included in this Report must not be taken as affecting the resident population, as many Passengers daily arrive in the Colony by means of the small pulling boats and of whom no register can be kept by this Department.

EMIGRATION.

?

21. Emigration from Hongkong has sensibly decreased, there having been but 4,129 souls despatched in 1867, which is 986 less than in the previous Year. This is in a great measure to be attributed to the present cheapness of Rice and clothing in China, as it is well known that Chinese will not leave their native Country unless driven from it by want of em- ployment or by want of food.

     22. The number of Chinese returned from various Countries to their native land is 9,866, being an increase of 613 on the previous Year. In this increase are included 97 from Havana. This is the first Year that any Chinese have been reported as returning from that place.

23. The Netherlands Government is continuing its efforts to encourage Chinese to emigrate to Dutch Guiana and with that view, the advantages to Emigrants have been improved. The terms of their Contracts are most liberal. On their engagement at this place, they receive two suits of clothes with bedding and other comforts for the voyage. In addition to this a sum of eleven dollars is given them, with which they purchase a few articles, giving a large proportion of their remaining money to their friends who accompany them to see them off. The intending Emigrants agree to serve for a term of Five Years at the rate of Seven Dollars a month. They are excused from all labor on Sundays and public holidays. At the end of their service they receive Sixty Dollars bonus, which, with the savings accrued from their monthly pay, enables them either to pay their passage back to China or to embark their little fortune in shopkeeping or in cultivating a piece of ground which the Netherlands Government gives to those who wish to remain in the Country as settlers. During their period of service the Chinese are under the special protection of the Government and enjoy the same rights as other citizens. With so many advantages offered it is difficult to conceive on what facts the opponents to the system of hired Emigration can ground their arguments, for it must be self-evident that the condition of the Chinese is much improved by their transferrence to British or Dutch possessions.

    24. It has lately been prominently brought to my notice that during the North-east monsoon the Masters of some of the Vessels bound to Singapore and Bangkok have been in the habit of carrying more Chinese Passengers than is permitted by the Chinese Passengers' Act, 1855.

    25. The Vessels are cleared in the usual manner with 20 Passengers, after which they are dropped a little way beyond Green Island and then take on board large numbers of Chinese. In the possible event of any Vessel so laden falling in with heavy weather or calms, the loss of life in the former case from want of proper accommodation, and in the latter from want of food and water together with the risk of an epidemic breaking out would be frightful.

    26. Heavy penalties have been imposed in each case where the Masters of Vessels have been proved to have infringed the Law.

    27. I trust that the steps adopted at this Port with the co-operation of the Government of the Straits Settlement, will shortly put a stop to this most objectionable and dangerous practice.

REGISTRY OF SHIPPING.

    28. Thirty Vessels have been registered during the Year and Thirty-seven have for various reasons been struck off. The loss on the difference amounts to 2,182 tons.

SEA MEN,

29. The number of Seamen shipped during the Year amounts to 8,117 and of those discharged to 7,535.

    30. A large number of Seamen have been forwarded to this Colony during the Year from the Consular Ports in China, the Philippine Islands and Siam.

    31. The system of doing so, in cases where it could be avoided, is most antagonistic to the good order of Victoria. The legal discharge of Seamen at the local Mercantile Marine Office is purposely limited to meet the probable requirements of the Port; therefore any large influx of Seamen from other Ports tends to overthrow all calculations made here to keep the supply and demand of this class of men on a proper footing and is attended with considerable expense to the Imperial Government as the greater proportion of the Seamen land in a destitute condition. Measures have been taken which I hope will prevent a recurrence of this evil.

32. The sum expended in 1867 for the relief of destitute Seamen was $6,545.75.

MARINE MAGISTRATE'S COURT.

33. The total number of cases tried during the Year was 241 or 10 less than in 1866 and of these 51 were for breaches of the Harbor and Coasts Ordinance, so that it will be observed that Seamen have not been so frequently as hitherto before the Court for breaches of discipline.

EXAMINATIONS,-Ordinancc No. 17 of 1860.

34. Under this Ordinance 35 Masters and Mates have received Certificates of Competency, 6 only have been rejected, showing an improvement on the last Year's Return.

MARINE COURTS.-Ordinance No. 11 of 1860.

35. Three of these Courts have been held during the past Year. The first was held on the Chief Mate of the Moldavian for harsh treatment towards the crew, which being proved, the defendant's Certificate of Competency was suspended for Three Months. The second was to investigate charges of drunkenness and incapacity brought by the Officers, and a portion of the crew against the Master of the Ethel. This resulted in the defendant's acquittal, and the Chief Mate being severely repri- manded. The third Court was to enquire into the cause of the loss of the steamer Genkai, near Chelang Point. The Master, Officers and Crew, were acquitted and highly commended for the exertions they made to save the Vessel.

GUNPOWDER STORAGE.-Ordinance No. 4 of 1867.

36. In consequence of an explosion on board a hulk containing about 100 tons of Gunpowder, moored at Kowloon, it was deemed necessary to bring the storage of Gunpowder under the immediate control of the Government. A hulk for this purpose was therefore purchased and fitted as a floating magazine. The Ordinance is in full working order, 31,777 packages, containing nearly 330 Tons of Gunpowder, have been delivered since June last.

   37. There has been one conviction under this Ordinance, but as the case was attended with much danger during the passage of the Ship and also for a short time to the Vessels in Harbor and to the Town, it is worthy of special attention.

   38. A ship left New York with a full cargo of what the Master supposed to be non-explosive packages and consequently did not pay such particular attention to the storage as would have been the case had he known he had a quantity of Gun- powder on board. In the manifest was entered a certain number of packages of merchandize. In the meanwhile advices had been received from Shanghai by the Agents here to the effect that a number of cases of Cartridges was on board the Vessel, so that on her arrival they applied in the usual way for permission to store 394 cases in the Gunpowder Dep?t. It was only then, that the Master knew he had been carrying 34 cwt. of Gunpowder.

   39. The fine imposed will doubtless lead to greater care being taken at the Ports of Shipment, to state distinctly in ships' manifests if Gunpowder forms a portion of the Cargo.-I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

The following Report, with the Census Returns annexed for the Year 1867, is published for general information,

By Command,

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 14th March, 1868.

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 29th February, 1868.

   In forwarding the Annual Census Returns for the Year 1867, I avail myself of the opportunity of offering a few cursory remarks in elucidation of their contents, and of the progress of which they bear evidence.

2. My last Report furnished details shewing a decrease in the population generally of more than 10,000 Souls, and as I then pointed out such a decrease might faithfully be attributed to the fresh legislation which had been so lately introduced, and explanations of the purport of which had been extremely well circulated among the Chinese, although its operation had not then commenced.

   3. That such was the case, time has since completely proved; but as the provisions of the new Ordinances began to be understood in their working, and their effect upon the Native Community, those who had left, soon returned, and before the Year closed, more than 10,000 Chinese had taken up their residence here, as compared with the numbers shewn in the Returns of 1866.

   4. Much labor was expended at the commencement of last Year in ascertaining the basis of the fears which were generally reported to exist among the Chinese. I found that idle rumours were added to well grounded fears. The scope of the legisla- tion was in many cases wilfully misinterpreted, and many individuals, instead of learning for themselves by reading the ex- planatory notices which were conspicuously published and placarded by Government, and the translation of the Ordinances which they held in their hands, took fright and left the Colony.

   5. It will be remembered, too, that the Festival of the New Year fell much earlier than usual, and thus, having a good reason for visiting their native places, the Chinese residents seized the opportunity of going home, thereby reaping the double advantage of performing an almost sacred duty and being absent from Hongkong when the provisions of the new Ordinances were to be carried into effect. I may here add that the only Ordinance which created apparently the principal spirit of anta- gonism was that by which power was given to a Medical Inspector to chose his own opportunity for intruding on the privacy of their family houses.

   6. But as year by year, uninfluenced by local causes, the Chinese do leave the Colony at Christmas time to spend their own nearly approaching festive season in their own country, it is impossible to compile Census Returns, shewing the real popula- tion of Hongkong, at that time. There are, undoubtedly, more residents on shore and more boats in the Harbor during any other months in the Year than December and January, and while pointing out what I consider an error on the part of those who fixed the 31st December as the day for taking the Census, I would suggest the easy remedy of postponing the Census. which would in due course be taken at the end of December 1868 to June 1869.

   7. Analysing however, the present Returns, it appears that in the gross there has been an increase of 2,373 souls over that of 1866. But the increase is, I hold, still larger, for I have taken the liberty this Year of crossing out from the Census a Return of 2,000 persons which have hitherto been described as Vagrants. Since the mat sheds which everywhere dotted the hills have been so properly pulled down I see no justification for such a Return, and have, therefore, erased it from the present Tables. It is true that those figures were inserted in 1866, and I must plead guilty to having allowed them to stand although grave doubts existed in my mind as to the truth of the estimate. My only excuse is that I followed the practice introduced by my predecessors.

   8. Taking into consideration, then, this point, the total population being 117,471, may well be considered as shewing an increase of 4,373 for the past Year. In Victoria, alone, however, the Chinese population has increased to the extent of 9,731 souls, and that this amount is not apparent in the grand total is to be explained by an inspection of the figures shewing the boat population, where there has been a falling off, of nearly 5,000; this great decrease is to be found almost entirely in the Villages, and may be due to the fact that, whereas prior to the introduction of the Harbor and Coasts Ordinance, numerous craft of all descriptions left the main Harbor, and retired to the Villages, where the Ordinance was not expected to reach them, thus increasing the boat population in those places from 7,738 in 1865 to 13,099 in 1866, a few months enabling them to see the futility of their conduct, they gradually came back, and the Returns shew that the numbers have nearly reached their former amount, a state of affairs to be expected, since there has been little or no increase of trade in the Villages.

   9. I would next draw attention to Keturn No. 3 which shews that during the past Year a fair increase in the number of buildings for the Chinese, and in the number of families, viz., 189, over the previous Year, which settled in the Colony. This latter point is, I hold, of considerable importance as evincing a gradual surmounting on the part of Native of Residents, of old prejudices-formerly deemed insurmountable by many,-against bringing their wives and families to live in a British Colony, or indeed in any place out of their own country.

   10. To gather a correct estimate of the progress made, it must not be forgotten that during the great fire of October last more than 300 Houses were burnt to the ground. The Returns, however, being compiled in December shew a slight decrease of 189, which taken into account with the 300 burnt down, proves as I have stated, that in this important point there has been no retrogression, but the contrary, during the Year under review.

   11. The decrease in the number of houses in the Villages is to be explained by the fact that in the Assessment books, which form the basis of the computation, no mention is now made of Tenements under the assessed value of $10 per Annum, and thus numerous hovels usually included in the Returns have been omitted.

12. Trade among the Chinese, as may be expected, was far from flourishing. Great losses were sustained, more especially in Gold, Rice, Peas and Sugar. In Salt-fish, too, owing it is reported to the action of the Chinese Authorities, and the string- ency of the regulations of the salt revenue, the business fell from about $700,000 in 1866 to $600,000 in 1867. Live stock paid but badly, although the trade in Pigs alone is stated to have reached $300,000, and in Poultry $130,000.

13. Great losses in the Gold trade, which is calculated by the Chinese at about Four Million Dollars for last Year, seem at last to have induced the Dealers to turn their attention to the Mint. It appears to have been the custom for the seller to enter into a contract with the buyer that the Gold landed in India should on assay prove of the same touch as that stated at the time of sale. Much difference, however, has been alleged, which the Native Dealer has had to make good, and at last he has arranged that the assay should take place at the Hongkong Mint, when, before the purchase is completed, the position of all parties to the transactions can be well known.

   14. The trade of the Opium Farm has been considerable during the past Year. No less than 644,200 taels weight of prepared Opium has been exported to California and Australia, and 252,800 taels weight has been sold in the Colony. The former is valued at 80 cents, and the latter at 65 cents per tael, thus making the value of the total exported $505,360 and of the latter $229,320, or a gross total value of $744,620,

     15. I do not think it would be out of place here to give some account of the working of the recently enacted Ordinance which almost entirely affects the Chinese. I refer, of course to the "Victoria Registration Ordinance 1866," and in order that the material results of that Act may be seen, I annex certain Returns (A) shewing among other things the number of Certificates issued, the Fees received therefor, and the prosecutions which have been sustained.

16. Many defects have cropped up in the operation of the Ordinance, which it is unnecessary to enlarge upon in this Report, but on the whole, it can safely be said that the introduction of such legislation was a success, and that much public good has been derived from it.

     17. There can be no doubt that the responsibility thrown on the Householders of preventing the Tenants or Occupants of their houses from committing any breach of the laws, relating to the illicit sale of Spirits, the keeping of un-registered Brothels or Public Gambling Houses, has materially assisted in putting down those offences. Nor as far as the Chinese are concerned has there been any opposition to carrying out what was required. Except in a few instances, a ready compliance has been observed on all sides.

     18. But these remarks refer more especially to the Registration of Houses. The Registration of Servants has been far otherwise, and I am inclined to consider its partial failure due more especially to the want of support which the measure has received at the hands of the Foreign Community. Still much good has resulted and is likely to be strengthened as time progresses, for as any member of the body of Foreign Residents conscientiously observes, not only the letter, but the spirit of the enactment, so does he assist towards purging the community of a class of men, who have an organized system for com- mitting petty robberies.

     19. Great laxity, however, is displayed by the Colonists in this matter, who, for the most part, seem to forget that the Ordinance was passed solely for their protection, and not as a means of Revenue. No law is perfect, but if the Community had rendered the assistance, which I believe they were bound to give towards allowing the Registration Ordinance a fair chance of remedying a very palpable defect in this portion of our municipal legislation, matters would bear a very different aspect to that which they do at present, and the Executive might have seen its way towards advantageously legislating afresh in the same direction. At it is, so great is the apparent passive opposition displayed, that I hesitate to suggest alterations, firmly believing that if the Police Court is the only means of compelling the Foreign Residents to assist towards self-protection, no good result is ever likely to arise.

     20. I proceed, however, to that portion of the Registration Ordinance, by which has been established a body of men, acting as a help to the Police Force of the Colony. Sonre considerable time and labor was expended by myself in creating, as it were, this auxiliary Force. And the month of August arrived ere I was enabled to state that the special Watchmen could be recognized by the Executive.

     21. Much jealousy was at first displayed as to the powers which were to be exercised in controlling the Watchmen. Some thought that a Central Committee of Chinese Merchants appointed by the Native Community would act as the best Medium between the Watchmen and the Government Police, who should receive and report on the information which might be gathered from this new aid to the Executive, while others held it advisable that each District should have its own Council, to which the Watchmen in that District should be surbordinate.

     22. The difficulty of my position in this matter will be understood when I call to mind that this additional Force was to be supported solely by the Inhabitants of the different Districts and was to receive no aid whatever from Government.

     23. It is true that under the Ordinance, powers were conferred on the Registrar General as regards the Watchmen, but they depended, in the first instance, on the action of the Chinese in recommending or not chosing to recommend fit Persons for the posts of Chief or other Watchmen.

     24. After much discussion, however, the Community of the Five Districts to the West of the Parade Ground, agreed to elect a certain number of their body to act Watchmen, whose pay should be disbursed by themselves and be collected from house to house by men especially appointed for the purpose. Thus five Chief Watchmen, (and one subsequently appointed for Wanchai,) as well as 40 Ordinary Watchmen were recommended and appointed by His Excellency The Governor. The pay of the former is at the rate of $20, and of the latter at $8 per mensem. In addition, five Stations are rented for their occupa- tion, and a uniform Coat provided from the special fund. The accounts are kept in this Office, and are open at any time to inspection.

     25. Subject to correction, for I know that there is much diversity of opinion as to the advisability of employing Chinese at all as Police,-I consider that a very valuable nucleus for Police purposes has been formed, from which, if unanimity between the Government Constables and the Watchmen is maintained and cultivated, great public advantage may be reaped. This Report, however, would be greatly lengthened, and perhaps unnecessarily so, were detailed reasons given for this opinion, which I believe are patent to those who will bear in mind the great difference between the present and past times, in that now we have men capable, however imperfectly, of communicating with, directly supervising, and understanding the class with which they have to deal.

     26. Nor have the Watchmen been idle during the short time which they have been doing duty, as the accompanying Return (B) will shew. But not having in the first instance instituted any accurate means of recording their acts,-a inistake since remedied--much labor would be incurred in tracing the assistance given, in all instances, in the interests of Justice.

     27. But writing generally, I may say that my expectations never led me to suppose that they would take a very pro- minent part in apprehending criminals, and become of much notoriety. It was rather as a detective force that much assistance was looked for, and, according to the recognized Chinese Custom, those who pay for their support expect them to keep the vagabonds and bad characters from congregating in their different Districts.

     28. It is a fact, however, that during the latter portion of last Year, Crime had diminished, and some credit I consider due to the Watchmen appointed by the Native Cominunity. Seeing them every day, much information, which could not otherwise be obtained, is learnt, and among themselves they are not likely to become very corrupt, as any instance of dis- honesty would surely come to the knowledge of one or other of the residents, from whom a well substantiated report of irregularity in duty would entail instant dismissal and punishment.

     29. This Report has reached a greater length than was originally intended, nevertheless, it would not be complete without some allusion to the Stamp Act, and its effect on the Chinese Community. Indeed, were the subject passed by without comment it might be suggested that I adopted such a course purposely. But my only reason for so acting would be that I had so recently handed in a general Report on the subject. Still as I am now passing under review the state of the Colony so far as the Chinese are concerned, I may shortly state that no enactment, as it at present stands, could have been less burdensome or less vexatious to the Native portion of the Colonial residents. Instead of the Stamp Act being a blow to Chinese trade, from personal observation and minute enquiry it appears to have had no such influence, and I am quite sure that no satisfactory or reliable evidence of its unpopularity can be gleaned from those who are put forward by some as being of their own accord actively opposed to the measure.

     30. Finally, I may add that although trade generally during the Year 1867 has been far from flourishing, yet the Colony appears to be on as sound a footing, and in as healthy a state as in many previous Years when business of all kinds was thriving and increasing.

SIR,

GENERAL POST OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 7th March, 1868.

I do myself the honor to hand you the Eighth Annual Report on the Post Office being that for the Year 1867. 2. It is satisfactory to remark that, in the declining and disturbed state of trade, the Revenue of 1867 has exceeded that of the previous Year by the sum of $3,089.37, and the subjoined statement shews that whilst the Imperial Share of the Revenue collected in 1867 is ?730.4.10 less than that collected in 1866, the Colony's share has improved by $6,594.54, at the same time it must be borne in mind that the amounts (exclusive of Postage Stamps) outstanding and due to this Office

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST MARCH, 1868.

from the Post Office Agencies at the Ports in China and Japan is $5,019.22 cents less at the end of 1867 than it was at the end of 1866, and therefore the increase in the Colony's Revenue for 1867 is really only $1,575.32 in excess of the previous Year, which may be accounted for by improved arrangements at Shanghae, and, in some measure, to the Colonial Revenue derived from Mails carried by the new line of Pacific Steam Ship Company's Vessels, running between this place and Yokohama and San Francisco, which was inaugurated in February last Year.

  4. Although, as I have before pointed out, the Revenue of the Post Office is not perfect evidence of the amount of duty performed, it may be looked upon to some extent in that light, and I fully anticipate that so soon as the power, obtained by the Imperial Post Master General under the 22nd Clause of the New Contract which he has entered into with the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, to fit up the Packets running between Singapore and Hongkong, and Hongkong and Shanghae, with the necessary appliances to admit of the Mails being sorted on board the Packets, is exercised, the Revenue will be much increased, as the acceleration in the delivery of the Correspondence, which this sorting en route will bring with it, will take from the Public the plen, if so it may be called, for sending any letters otherwise than through the medium of the Post Office; the necessary arrangements for giving effect to this measure are now under the consideration of the Imperial Postal Authorities and its introduction will, I appreliend, necessitate the remodelling of the Department, for whilst fewer Officers will be required at the time of the receipt or dispatch of an English Mail, a considerable staff will still have to be kept up to work the Mails by the French and Pacific Steamers as well as those by the numerous other Vessels, frequenting this Port.

  5. During the Year 1867, the Postal Agencies at the Ports and those ports where no Agencies of the Post Office exist, but where it was proposed to establish Agencies, have been inspected by myself and Mr. Rea from St. Martins-le-grand with a view to assessing the conditions, and completing arrangements for their immediate transfer to the exclusive control of this Government, and much information has been gained and many improvements effected thereby, the carrying out of which either await the authority of Treasury Warrants, which are in course of being obtained, or further consideration at home.

  6. A reciprocal Postal Convention has been entered into by the Colony and the United States' Post Office, for the con- veyance of Mails between Hongkong and Yokohama and San Francisco, which, whilst being convenient to the two Postal Departments in avoiding the necessity for keeping accounts, is also advantageous to the Public.

7. An arrangement has been made for accounting for the Mails from London to Hongkong and vice versa by bulk weight instead of Letter by Letter, which has resulted in a great saving of time and the keeping of less complicated accounts without entailing any loss to the Colonial Revenue, and it has also been arranged that the regulation, under which Letters for any places in China and Japan could not be forwarded from the United Kingdom unpaid or insufficiently prepaid, has been abolished, and such Letters are now sent from London to these places, the unpaid postage being charged against this Office and accounted for by it to London.

8. The Mails between the United Kingdom and this Office are now sent in bags instead of Boxes as formerly, a system which has been adopted as a matter of economy. I have been informed that the Mail Boxes for the service generally, cost the Imperial Office upwards of ?5,000 per annum, and it is anticipated that the bags will cost considerably less, and it is also said that bags stow in less space than boxes, for whilst they take up no unnecessary room, boxes which it is sometimes necessary to send only partially filled with correspondence take up much more space on board the Packets; the use of bags however is in my opinion much to be deprecated, as they do not afford the same protection as Boxes do, and in many cases it has been observed that Letters are much mutilated by friction in the bags.

9. A concession has been obtained in gaining permission for the Agents of this Department at Shanghae and Yokohama to make up Mails for the United Kingdom to be forwarded by the French Packets which has given very general satisfaction, and I hope soon to see that Mails per French Packet will be made up in the United Kingdom for delivery from the British Post Offices at these places.

  10. The Expenditure of the Department for the Year 1867, so far as the same has been defrayed by the Colony, amounts to $26,278.95, which includes the sum of $3,427.66 paid for the conveyance of Mails by private ship, a sum $987.85 in excess of that paid in the previous Year for similar services; the total Expenditure in 1867 was therefore $1,077.51 in excess of that for 1866, whilst the sum disbursed by the Imperial Office in the maintenance of the Postal Agencies at the Ports amounts to ?870.0.0.

11. It has been found necessary owing to the growing importance of the duty in Japan to establish a Post Office at Yokohama entirely independent of the Consulate, which is to be maintained at a cost of ?500 per annum, from Imperial funds and ?300 per annum from the Colony, and Mr. Simpson, late Assistant Postmaster General at Hongkong, has been sent there to carry on the service. This step has necessitated the temporary promotion of each of the remaining Officers, pending the arrival of an Assistant Postmaster General from home.

  12. The amount realized by the sale of Postage Stamps during the Year 1867 was $128,176.24 of which Stamps of the value of $80,350.96 were sold in Hongkong and the remainder, viz.: $47,825.28, at the Ports; the following is a list of the number and value of each kind of Postage Stamps sold, viz:-

    13. The sum which the Colonial Government derived on Mails from the United Kingdom during the Year 1867 amounts to ?790.3.6, or ?437.4.9 less than the sum received from the same source in the previous Year.

14. During the Year 1867, 164,761 Letters and 145,597 Newspapers and Prices Current were sent in the Mails by the British Packets to the United Kingdom, which show a decrease of 7,070 Letters and 7,258 Papers in the Year 1867 as compared with the Year 1866, and this accounts in some measure for the falling off in the Imperial share of the Revenue.

    15. The number of Letters sent to the United Kingdom in the Mails by the French Packets during the Year 1867 is 10,597 and the number of papers 4,428, shewing an increase of 523 Letters and 2,557 Papers in the Year 1867, as compared with 1866; the number of Letters and Papers sent from the United Kingdom, either by the English or French Packets is not entered in the accounts which accompany the Mails from London, and it has not been considered desirable to take the numbers here because such a practice would involve delay in the delivery of the correspondence to the Public.

    16. The Letters received in the Mails by the Pacific Packets number 4,091 and the Papers 6,188, and those sent 4,366 Letters and 4,670 Papers: the first Mail by these Vessels was received on the 31st January, 1867, and the first Mail was dispatched on the 17th February: there were 5 Mails dispatched and the same number received during the Year.

17. The Registered Letters received from London during 1867 numbered 985, or 46 in excess of those received in 1866, /whilst those sent from Hongkong to London number 821, or 184 less in 1867 than in 1866.

/whilst

    18. The number of Ship Mails (.e. Mails conveyed by Vessels not under Contract) received at Hongkong during the Year 1867 was 1,179, or 58 in excess of those received in 1866, and the number of such Mails which were despatched from Hongkong was 1,747, or 131 more than the number sent in 1866.

    19. During the Year 1867, 1,110 Official Letters on the business of the Office were received and 855 Letters were sent from the Office.

    20. From the Returns appended it will be observed that during the Year 1867 great improvements have taken place in the Arrival of the British Contract Mails and that 19 Mails have arrived before their due date, one on its due date, and only four arrived after they were due here, and that 41 days were gained on the voyage and 12 lost in the transmission of the Mails via Southampton, and 42 days were gained and 10 lost in the transmission of those vi? Marseilles, against 31 days gained and 25 days lost in the Year 1866, and that the quickest time in which a Mail was brought from London to Hongkong vi? Marseilles was 38 days against 37 days in 1866.

21. I append a Return shewing the dates of the Arrival and Departure of the French Packets in the Year 1867, by which it is shewn that the quickest Mail brought from London by this line in 1867 occupied 39 days; the same time in which the quickest Mail was delivered in Hongkong in the previous Year.-I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant.

Circular No. 65.

DEPARTMENT OF STATE, WASHINGTON, D.C., August 13th, 1867.

To the CONSULAR OFFICERS of the UNITED STATES.

Your attention is called to the 25th Section of the Act entitled "An Act further to prevent Smuggling, and for other purposes," approved July 18th, 1866, which is as follows:

"Sec. 25. And be it further enacted, That, on and after the first day of July next, the several provisions of the Act "entitled 'An Act to regulate the collection of duties on imports and tonnage,' approved March two, seventeen hundred and "ninety-nine, relating to manifests, shall apply as well to vessels owned in whole or in part by foreigners as to vessels of the "United States; and that the Secretary of State send copies of this section to all consular officers of the United States in "foreign countries."

 Your attention is also called to the fact that, by section 3 of chapter 42 of the laws of the second session of the 39th Congress, the section above quoted was amended by inserting the word "March" in place of the word "July" therein,

 It will be seen that the law has already gone into effect, which places vessels owned in whole or in part by foreigners upon the same footing as vessels owned by citizens of the United States, so far as the production of manifests is concerned.

 You are, therefore, instructed to inform the masters of all vessels leaving your port for the United States, that they are required to produce manifests in accordance with the provisions of section twenty-three (23) of the Act to regulate the collection of duties on imports and tonnage, approved March 2, 1799, a copy of which is hereto annexed. (Statutes at Large vol. i. p. 644.)

And be it further enacted, That no goods, wares, or merchandise shall be brought into the United States from any foreign port or place, in any ship or vessel belonging in the whole or in part to a citizen or citizens, inhabitant or "inhabitants of the United States, unless the master or person having the charge or command of such ship or vessel shall "have on board a manifest or manifests in writing, signed by such master or other person, containing the name or names of "the port or ports, place or places, where the goods in such manifest or manifests mentioned shall have been respectively "taken on board, and the port or ports, place or places, within the United States, for which the same are respectively and consigned or destined, particularly noting the goods, wares, and merchandise destined for each port or place respectively, "the name, description, and build of such ship or vessel, and the true admeasurement or tonnage thereof, the port or place to "which such vessel belongs, with the name or names of each owner, according to the register of the same, together with the name of the master or other person having the charge or command of such ship or vessel, and a just and particular account "of all the goods, wares, and merchandise so laden or taken on board, whether in packages, or stowed loose, of any kind or nature whatsoever, together with the marks and numbers as marked on each package, and the number or quantity and "description of the packages, in words at length, whether leaguer, pipe, butt, puncheon, hogshead, barrel, keg, case, bale, "pack, truss, chest, box, bandbox, bundle, parcel, cask, or package, of any kind or sort, describing the same by its usual name or denomination, together with the name or names of the person or persons to whom the same are respectively "consigned, agreeably to the bills of lading, signed for the same, unless when the said goods are consigned to order, when it "shall be so expressed in the said manifest or manifests, together with the name or names of the several passengers on board "the said ship or vessel, distinguishing whether cabin or steerage passengers, or both, with their baggage, specifying the "number and description of packages belonging to each, respectively, together with an account of the remaining sea stores, "if any; and a form of a manifest for goods and merchandise imported in a vessel of the United States shall be as follows, "to wit:

The Postage must in all cases be paid in advance.

Special attention is directed to the following Rules and Regulations which will be strictly enforced.

AS REGARDS BOOKS.

  A Book Packet may contain any number of separate Books, Almanacks, Maps, or Prints, and any quantity of paper, vellum or parchment (to the exclusion of letters whether sealed or open); and the Books, Maps, Paper, &c., may be either printed, written or plain, or any mixture of the three.

  All legitimate binding, mounting, or covering of the same or of a portion thereof, will be allowed, whether such binding be loose or attached ; as also rollers in the case of prints, markers (whether of paper or otherwise,) in the case of Books, and in short whatever is necessary for the safe transmission of literary or artistic matter or usually appertains thereto.

Every Book packet must be either without a cover, or in a cover open at the ends or sides. It must not contain any letter, open or sealed, nor any sealed enclosure whatever.

  No packet must exceed two feet in length, breadth, or depth, exceeding these dimensions it cannot be forwarded through the Post.

AS REGARDS PATTERNS.

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

  There must be no writing or marks other than the address of the person for whom the packet is intended, a trade mark and numbers, and prices of the articles; otherwise the Packet will be detained or forwarded charged as an unpaid letter.

  The Patterns must be sent in covers open at the ends, so as to be easy of examination. Samples however, of seeds, drugs and so forth, which cannot be sent in open covers, may be enclosed in bags

of linen or other material, tied at the neck; bags so closed that they cannot readily be opened, even although they be transparent, must not be used for this purpose. Non-compliance with this rule will also subject the packet to be detained or forwarded as an unpaid letter.

     The Packets or the contents thereof must not contain any inclosure, sealed or otherwise closed against inspection.

In all other respects the general regulations of the Book Post will apply to the Pattern Post. Under these regulations, in order to prevent any interruption to the regular transmission of letters, a Packet of Patterns may, when it is necessary, be kept back for the following Mail by which, in the ordinary course, it would be forwarded.

The decision of the Postmaster General as to the eligibility of any Packet, pattern, or sample contained therein, to be forwarded under these regulations, will be final and conclusive.

     The rule which forbids the transmission through the Post of any article likely to injure the contents of the Mail Bags or Boxes, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office is, of course, applicable to the Pattern Post; and a packet containing anything of the kind will be stopped, and not sent to its destination. Articles, such as the following, have been occasionally posted as Patterns and have been detained as unfit for the Post, viz.: Metal boxes, porcelain and China, fruit, vegetables, bunches of flowers, cuttings of plants, spurs, knives, scissors, needles, pins, pieces of machinery, sharp pointed instruments, samples of metals, samples of ore, samples in glass bottles, pieces of glass, acids of various kinds, curry combs, copper and steel engraving, plates and confectionery of all kinds.

of linen or other material, tied at the neck; bags so closed that they cannot readily be opened, even although they be transparent, must not be used for this purpose. Non-compliance with this rule will also subject the packet to be detained or forwarded as an unpaid letter.

The Packets or the contents thereof must not contain any inclosure, sealed or otherwise closed against inspection.

In all other respects the general regulations of the Book Post will apply to the Pattern Post. Under these regulations, in order to prevent any interruption to the regular transmission of letters, a Packet of Patterns may, when it is necessary, be kept back for the following Mail by which, in the ordinary course, it would be forwarded.

The decision of the Postmaster General as to the eligibility of any Packet, pattern, or sample contained therein, to be forwarded under these regulations, will be final and conclusive.

The rule which forbids the transmission through the Post of any article likely to injure the contents of the Mail Bags or Boxes, or the person of any Officer of the Post Office is, of course, applicable to the Pattern Post; and a packet containing anything of the kind will be stopped, and not sent to its destination. Articles, such as the following, have been occasionally posted as Patterns and have been detained as unfit for the Post, viz.: Metal boxes, porcelain and China, fruit, vegetables, bunches of flowers, cuttings of plants, spurs, knives, scissors, needles, pins, pieces of machinery, sharp pointed instruments, samples of metals, samples of ore, samples in glass bottles, pieces of glass, acids of various kinds, curry combs, copper and steel engraving, plates and confectionery of all kinds.

TREASURY WARRANT.

   Whereas by an Act of Parliament passed in the fourth year of the reign of Her Majesty, chapter 96, for the regulation of the duties of postage, certain scales of weight and rates of postage were fixed and made chargeable and payable upon, for, or in respect of letters, newspapers, Parliamentary proceedings, and printed papers transmitted and forwarded by the post, and various regulations were made for facilitating the transmission of such letters and papers by the post; and by the same Act powers were given to the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury from time to time, and at any time thereafter, by Warrant, under their hands, to alter and fix any of the rates of postage therein mentioned.

**

158

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH APRIL, 1868.

And whereas further powers are given to the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury by another Act of Parliament, passed in the eleventh year of the reign of Her Majesty, chapter 85, for giving further facilities for the transmission of letters by post, and for the regulating the duties of postage thereon, and for other purposes relating to the Post Office.

And whereas it is expedient to authorize the transmission of certain packets by the post between Hongkong and Shanghai, and between Hongkong and Shanghai and certain other ports in China and Japan, and for that purpose to fix certain rates of postage and make certain regulations in the manner hereinafter mentioned and set forth.

   Now we, the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury, in exercise of the powers reserved to us in and by the said herein- before recited Acts of Parliament respectively, and each of them, and of all other powers enabling us in this behalf, do by this Warrant, under the hands of two of us, the said Commissioners (by the authority of the statute in that case made and provided) order, direct, and declare as follows:-

1. All packets consisting of books, publications, or works of literature or art, whether British, colonial, or foreign, or consisting of printed votes or proceedings of the Imperial Parliament, or the Colonial Legislatures, and all packets consisting of patterns or samples of merchandize, posted in Hongkong, addressed to Shanghai, or posted in Shanghai, addressed to Hong- kong or posted in Hongkong or Shanghai, addressed to any other port in China, or any port in Japan at which the British packet boat calls, or posted in any port in China (except Hongkong or Shanghai), or any port in Japan at which the British packet boat calls, addressed to Hongkong or Shanghai, may be transmitted direct by British packet boat between Hongkong and Shanghai, and between Hongkong or Shanghai, and any other port in China, or any port in Japan at which such packet boat calls, subject to the several rates of postage hereinafter mentioned, that is to say:-

---?

On every such packet so transmitted, if not exceeding four ounces in weight, there shall be charged and taken an uniform

rate of postage (British and colonial combined) of three pence;

And on every such packet exceeding four ounces, and not exceeding eight ounces in weight, there shall be charged and

taken two rates of postage;

And on every such packet exceeding eight ounces, and not exceeding twelve ounces in weight, three rates of postage; And on every such packet exceeding twelve ounces, and not exceeding sixteen ounces in weight, four rates of And for every additional four ounces in weight of any such packet above the weight of sixteen ounces, there shall be

postage; charged and taken one additional rate of postage; and in charging any additional rate of postage under this clause every fractional part of every additional four ounces shall be charged as an additional four ounces in weight; and each progressive and additional rate chargeable under this clause shall be estimated and charged at the sum which any such packet would be charged with under this Warrant, if not exceeding four ounces in weight.

   2. The postage of all such packets as aforesaid shall in every case be paid at the time of the same being posted either in money or by the proper postage stamp or stamps being affixed thereto, which stamp or stamps shall in every case be affixed or appear on the outside of every such packet near the address or direction, and shall be of the value or amount of the postage duty payable thereon under or by virtue of this Warrant.

3. Every packet transmitted by the post, under the provisions of this Warrant (except packets consisting of patterns or samples of merchandize), shall be sent open at the ends or sides, and either without a cover or envelope, or in a cover or envelope open at the ends or sides, and there shall be no written letter, either closed or open, nor any written communication in the nature of a letter, either closed or open (whether such letter or communication be addressed to or intended for the person to whom the packet shall be directed or any other person), nor any enclosure sealed, or otherwise closed against inspection, nor any other enclosure, not authorized by this Warrant, sent in or with any such packet, nor shall there be any written letter, or any written communication, in the nature of a letter in or upon any such packet, or on the cover or envelope thereof. 4. Every packet consisting of patterns or samples of merchandize transmitted by the post, under the provisions of this Warrant, shall be so transmitted in conformity with and under and subject to the several orders, directions, regulations, and conditions following (that is to say)-

There shall be no enclosure sealed or otherwise closed against inspection and examination, nor any other enclosure, not

authorized by this Warrant, sent in or with any such packet;

There shall be no writing or printing upon any such packet, or the cover thereof, or contained therein, except the address of the person for whom it is intended, the address of the sender thereof, and a manufacturer's or trade mark, and number and price of the pattern or sample, and every such manufacturer's or trade mark, number and price, shall be written or printed on labels attached to such patterns or samples, or to the bags or boxes containing the same, and not on loose pieces of paper or other material;

All such packets shall be sent in covers open at the ends, so as to be easy of examination, nevertheless, samples of seeds, drugs, and such other articles, and things as cannot be sent in open covers may be enclosed in boxes or in bags of linen, paper, or other material which shall be tied with a string or otherwise fastened in such a manner that they may be readily opened, and closed bags, if transparent, may be used for this purpose;

No article which might injure the contents of the mail bags or the persons of the officers of the Post Office, shall be transmitted by the post under the authority of this Warrant; nevertheless any packet containing any razor, scissors, knife, fork, or other sharp, or pointed instrument, keys, watch machinery, metal, metal tubing, or ore, or such like, shall and may (notwithstanding anything in a certain Warrant of the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury, bearing date the 28th day of November, 1844, contained to the contrary), be transmitted by the post under the authority of this Warrant, subject to the several orders, directions, regulations, and restrictions herein mentioned and contained relating thereto; provided that every such article or instrument so contained in any such packet shall be securely packed and guarded, and every such packet shall not only conform in every respect to the several orders, directions, regulations, and restrictions herein contained, but the same shall also furnish sufficient protection against injury to the officers of the Post Office, and to the contents of the mail bags, while at the same time the patterns or samples may be easily examined, provided always that nothing herein contained shall extend to authorize the transmission by the post of any packet containing any explosive or other dangerous material or substance.

   5. No packet exceeding in length two feet, or in breadth or depth one foot, shall be forwarded by the post under the provisions of this Warrant unless under the special authority of the Postmaster General.

6. Every packet transmitted by the post under the provisions of this Warrant shall be put into the Post Office at such hours in the day and under all such regulations as the Postmaster General may appoint.

   7. If any packet be sent or be tendered or delivered in order to be sent by the post under the provisions of this Warrant otherwise than in conformity with the provisions and regulations applicable thereto hereinbefore contained the same shall (except as provided by the eighth clause of this Warrant), be chargeable and shall be treated in all respects as a letter.

   8. If any packet sent or tendered or delivered in order to be sent by the post, under the provisions of this Warrant, shall contain any written letter or any written communication in the nature of a letter, whether closed or open, or any enclosure sealed or otherwise closed against inspection, or any other enclosure not authorized by this Warrant, every such letter or communication or enclosure may be taken out by any officer of the Post Office, and either returned or given up to the sender thereof, or be forwarded to the address on the packet, charged not only with the full rates of postage as an unpaid letter, but also with a further and additional rate of postage of three-pence, and the remainder of the packet, if duly prepaid, may be forwarded to the place of its address without any extra charge.

   9. In order to prevent any obstacle to the due and regular transmission of letters by the post, any officer of the Post Office may delay the transmission of any packet posted or forwarded by the post under the provisions of this Warrant, either

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH APRIL, 1868.

159

for the space of twenty-four hours after the time at which the same ought to be despatched in due course of the post, or, at his option, until the despatch of the mail next after that by which the same ought in due course of the post to be forwarded by him.

10. In all cases in which any question shall hereafter arise whether any packet or anything contained therein, transmitted under or by virtue of this Warrant, is entitled to the privileges of this Warrant, and to be so transmitted within the intent and meaning thereof, such question shall be referred to the determination of the Postmaster General, whose decision thereupon shall be final and conclusive on all parties.

11. The terms "books, publications, or works of literature or art," used in this Warrant, shall, for the purposes of this Warrant, mean and comprise all such articles as in their general character are either literary or consist of printed, written, engraved, or lithographed matter (although not strictly literary), including books (whether printed, written, or plain), publications or compilations (whether in print or in manuscript), almanacks, printed or lithographed letters, and such artistic productions as prints, maps (whether on paper or canvas or cloth, and whether printed or written), and photographs, when not on glass, or in frames containing glass, and any description of paper, parchment or vellum (whether printed, lithographed, written upon, or plain, or any mixture of the four), together with any binding, mounting, or covering of or upon or belonging to any such article or production, or any portion thereof, or of or belonging to any paper, parchment, or vellum, and including also any cases or rollers of prints or maps, book markers (whether of paper or otherwise), pencils, pens, or other thing usually appertaining to any such article or production, paper, parchment, or vellum, or necessary for its safe transmission, which shall be sent in the same packet with any such article or production, to which they or it shall belong; and all letters, notices, and other communications (whether upon paper, parchment, or vellum), partly printed or partly lithographed and partly written, which, if wholly written, would not be considered letters or communications in the nature of letters: Provided, nevertheless, that nothing herein contained shall extend to authorize the sending by the post, under the provisions of this Warrant, of any letter, notice, or other communication (whether upon paper, parchment, or vellum), partly printed or partly lithographed, and partly written, which, if wholly written, would be considered a letter or communication in the nature of a letter, nor of any packet consisting of or containing any photographs, drawings, prints, or other contents which may be obviously of an obscene character, nor of any packet comprising prints or printed matter, unless such prints or printed matter shall consist wholly of prints or printed matter on paper, parchment, or vellum; and the several other terms and expressions used in this Warrant shall be construed to have the like meaning in all respects as they would have had if inserted in the said first hereinbefore recited Act.
