GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The following Report of the Colonial Surgeon, with Returns annexed for the Year 1870, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 20th January, 1871.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 17th January, 1871.

       In my Sanitary Report for 1870, being the Twelfth I have had the honor of submitting to the Government, I rejoice to be able to continue to record the improvement which has taken place in the health of the Colony since 1858. When the sudden and startling death of several members of our community is recalled to our recollection, we are prepared to find that 1870 has been eminently unhealthy. But the vital statistics of the past year, as shown in the following Tables, point out, that in the Gaol, the improvement has been so marked that the mortality has been lower than in any year previously recorded-and if among the general community it appears somewhat larger, it must not be forgotten that the Tables are calculated upon the Census of 1869, and that the additional five deaths recorded would probably not increase the percentage of mortality above the average, if the Tables were compiled from more correct data, which will never be obtained until a proper system of Registration of Deaths is enforced by law. There can, however, be no doubt that in the carly part of the summer, and up to the 3rd of August, there was a great and unusual increase of fever among the residents. For the most part it was not of a dangerous type, although by its tendency to relapse, it caused great prostration; but in one or two cases it assumed something of the character of typhus, and proved rapidy fatal. Opinions varied among practitioners, as to the cause of this disease, and I am aware that it was generally attributed to some cuttings in the hill side, and the spreading of the cut soil over the roads undergoing repair. I have never, however, concurred in this view, and believe that the sole cause of the malady must be traced to the remarkably small fall of rain, which had taken place previous to the 3rd of August. I was led to form this opinion from the fact, that although cases of fever really did occur in the immediate neighborhood of, and to leeward of these cuttings, and in certain localities in considerable number, this was not always the case; and not only was fever absent, in certain other localities, equally exposed to the supposed exhalations, bus it occurred both to windward of them, and in places where there had been no such cuttings. I think it much more reasonable to cast the onus on the absence of rain, and the state of our drains; for this reason, that no sooner did rain fall on the 3rd of August, in sufficient quantity to wash out the sewers, than a marked amelioration took place in the health of the community.

RAIN FALL from 1st January to 31st July for the last four Years registered at the GOVERNMENT CIVIL HOSPITAL.

And this naturally leads me to refer to the drains. It is not creditable to this Colony that after their unhealthy condition has been pointed out, both by myself and by the Sanitary Commission, they should remain as they are, a source of disease and death. In the early part of the past year the tenants, and others interested in the Praya lots, applied to the Government, through me, in regard to the seaward openings of the drains, and the noxious emanations from the foreshore, but the lowness of the public exchequer is the excuse offered for the unavoidable continuation of this most dangerous nuisance. Pending some more radical improvement, the drains should be run out into deep water, so as to prevent sewerage being exposed on the foreshore at low tides, and the openings trapped, to prevent the wind blowing up them, and thus forcing the foul air out at the various gratings through- out the town.

           Carbolic acid has been freely used, but no amount of it will suffice, until the system of drainage has been entirely remodelled as recommended by the Sanitary Commission.

Typhus fever was imported in eight vessels from Yokohama between the 10th February and the 11th May-and all these vessels were placed in quarantine. In the eight vessels, there were thirteen cases of fever, of which number one terminated fatally. The Health Officer of the Port, Dr. Adams, has, as promised last year, sent in a Report on the subject of the connection between this disease and the ballasting of ships with tidal mud, a subject which has attracted considerable attention in other Of 235 vessels in ballast, only 20 carried mud alone, obtained from Shanghai; and in those 20 no case of fever occurred" 124 of the total number came from Yokohama, Japan, ballasted

countries.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST JANUARY, 1371.

either with ordinary soil, obtained from the hill side, or with muddy shingle, taken from the beach :" 'eight of the ships so ballasted had typhus fever on board.” "It is significant that (although cases of typhus had occurred on shore at Yokohama where the crews might have been infected) no typhus fever was reported while the vessels had cargo on board, general, or otherwise." Now as Shanghai mud is unquestionably "tidal" and the ballast obtained at Yokohama was not strictly of this character, there does not appear to be any strong evidence afforded in the cases recorded, in favor of the theory that it is a frequent source of typhus.

    In the winter of 1869-70 there were very few cases of Small Pox reported, but in December last, they commenced to appear, and by the end of the year there had been 14 cases admitted into the Government Civil Hospital, and 46 into the Seamen's Hospital, besides 7 in the Gaol. Since the beginning of the year the discase has been rapidly approaching an epidemic form, in spite of every precaution taken by the Police to prevent its spreading.

No other epidemic visited the Colony during the past year..

I. THE POLICE.

    Although both the rate of sickness and the rate of mortality of this Force have been higher than in the previous year, it is not much above what it was in 1868, nor greatly in excess of the average

rate.

Table I. shows the number of admissions into, and deaths in, the Hospital, of members of the Police Force, during every month of 1870. The greatest number of admissions took place in August, but the greatest number of Europeans were admitted in June.

Table II. shows the rate per cent of sickness and mortality of the Force during the same year. Table III. shows the state of the health of the Troops serving in Hongkong during the year 1870 not to have been so good as in 1869, nor to compare as favorably with that of the Police, as it did in the previous year.

II. THE GOVERNMENT CIVIL HOSPITAL.

There is no Institution in this Colony with which I am connected, that I have less satisfaction in referring to. I do not complain of the management, or the staff of the Hospital, for under Dr. YOUNG'S vigilant superintendence, the results are most satisfactory, but the building is quite unfit for the pur- pose to which it is applied, both in regard to size and construction. During the past year no less than 1,996 cases have been treated in the present structure, which is neither large enough for, nor adapted to, the treatment of one third of that number. There is, therefore, great reason for thankful- ness that the rate of mortality has been less than in the previous year, although it exceeded that of 1868.

    Table V., which gives the rate of mortality during the last twelve years, distinguishing that of Europeans from colored persons and Chinese, shows at a glance that the general mortality has not reached the average, except in the case of colored persons; that the rate of mortality is still much higher than it was in 1868 among Europeans, somewhat lower among colored persons, and about the same as it was that year among Chinese.

By examining Table IV., which gives the number of admissions into, and the mortality in this Hospital during the year 1870, it will be seen that the admissions have increased under the heading of Small Pox, Diarrhoea and Dysentery, Fevers, Gonorrhea, Vertigo, Pneumonia, Pleuro Pneumonia and Pleuritis, Hepatitis and Splinitis, Drunkenness, and lastly Impostors. The increased mortality resulted from Small Pox, Remittent and Typhoid Fever, Dropsy, Pneumonia, Hepatitis and Abscess of the Liver, Anemia, Fractures and Gun-shot Wounds. There have been fewer admissions from Phthisis, Paralysis and Delirium Tremens, Bronchitis, Colic, and notably both fewer admissions and deaths from Jaundice and from all forms of Wounds, except Gun-shot Wounds. There have also been fewer moribund persons sent to Hospital, many, doubtless, having been taken to the "I-tze."

Table IX. shows the number of admissions into, and deaths in, the Government Civil Hospital during every month of 1870.

During the year, 6 invalids were sent home by the Harbor Master and the United States' Consul, and I understand they all arrived in safety at their destination.

Table VI., A, B and C, kindly sent to me by the Resident Surgeon, Dr. ADAMS, gives similar information in reference to the Seamen's Hospital, as the preceding tables give for the Civil Hospital. The result of treatment has been eminently successful during the year, and the tables are exceedingly satisfactory in consequence.

the

III. THE GAOL.

Table VII. shows the number of admissions into the Gaol Hospital, and the deaths there, during year 1870.

Table VIII. shows 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 1870. By this table it will be seen that the total number of prisoners is greater than in 1869, that the rate of sickness was also greater, but the rate of mortality 25 per cent less than in the previous year-less in absolute number than I have recorded since 1859, when there was a total of 2,484 Prisoners, a daily average of 239, and 4 deaths.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST JANUARY, 1871.

The daily average was 482, of which number only 4 died. the total number during the year 4,122, and the deaths 5.

In 1869 the daily average was 465,

        It will be seen that the increase in the number of Prisoners is entirely among Europeans, for refusal of duty and similar cases, and that the number of Chinese and colored Prisoners is even less than in 1869.

In 1869 the greatest number any one day in Gaol, was on the 10th February, when there were:-

        There is very little to record in reference to the sickness of the past year in this Institution. Three of the four deaths which occurred arose from fever, the fourth being a case of sun-stroke in an European. The building is neatness itself, and as long as its management continues in the able hands of Mr. DOUGLAS, it must remain a model of good order, and perfect discipline, combined with as much kindness and consideration, as the control of such a number, of criminals wil admit of.

IV. THE LOCK HOSPITAL.

       In my last Annual Report, I entered so fully into the question of the working of the Contagious Diseases Ordinance, and this establishment, that I need do little more, on the present occasion, than refer to the statistics contained in Tables A, B, C and D of the Appendix. It will be seen that a great improvement has taken place during the past year. In the two Hospitals, the percentage of contagious diseases contracted in Hongkong to all admissions, was 8.96 against nearly double that amount in 1869. In the Garrison, the percentage of primary disease to the total strength was reduced to 5.51 against 6.83 in 1869, and among the British ships of war which have visited this Port during the past year, only. 116 cases of contagious disease were contracted in Hongkong. In the Police, a similar improvement has taken place and the percentage of infection has been reduced from 16.66 in 1869 to 13.75 in 1870. Again, in turning to Table X., we find that the type of the disease is undergoing a steady improvement, under the strict surveillance to which the women are subjected; the average number of days of treatment having further diminished from 24.8 in 1869 to 23.1 in 1870. The whole of these Tables, as well as Table XIV., convey a large amount of information, and will well repay a careful study.

20

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST JANUARY, 1871.

I have added in Appendix E. and F., a letter addressed to me by Deputy Inspector General POTTINGER of H. M.'s Naval Hospital; and statistics from Surgeon RAMSAY of H. M.'s 75th Regiment, in reference to the freedom of the men of his regiment from contagious disease. The evidence of these gentlemen is extremely valuable and gratifying to myself, under whose care the medical exa- Both gentlemen have had experience of minations have been carried on for the past twelve years. Hongkong, and known what "Hongkong Disease" was, before the introduction of the Contagious Diseases Ordinance into the Colony-and both agree as to the great contrast. Dr. POTTINGER Says: "Judging from my own experience, I should say that Syphilis has all but disappeared from the Colony." Dr. RAMSAY writes: "I may add that during an experience of 16 years as an Army Medical Officer in "all climates, I have not seen a similar immunity.'

"7

Dr. POTTINGER refers to my method of examination and says: "The instruments used by you are "admirably adapted for bringing into view the parts, including the Os and Cervix Uteri, very quickly, "thoroughly and without the least pain to the female." Deputy Inspector Dr. BERNARD wrote to me in 1868: "I was much struck by the method adopted by you, combining as it does an efficient search "ing inspection with great rapidity of execution and appearing to me much better than that mad "with the ordinary speculum." Dr. HEFFERNAN, Deputy Inspector General, writing in regard to th same matter refers to these instruments thus: "I have witnessed this examination as carried out b "you here, and consider it to be done most effectually." Surgeon Major BARNIER of the Frenc Frigate "Guerri?re" who had great experience in France, after expressing his opinion as to the "pe “de gravit? et du petit nombre des cas de Syphilis contract?s par les Europ?ens dans cette ville,” say in reference to these instruments: "J'ai vu examiner ces femmes avec un instrument invent? par "Docteur MURRAY, Colonial Surgeon, et j'ai constat? que l'emploi, d'ailleurs tres facile, de cette instr ment, permet d'examiner en moyenne trois femmes par minute." I have only to add that D NEWTON, who has charge of the Lock Hospitals and the prevention of Syphilis in Japan, uses no oth instruments and writes of them: "They are such effective instruments, much superior to any kind "speculum."

I shall be glad to find that the value of these instruments, which a twelve years' daily use h enabled me to perfect, is appreciated by the Profession and that they are brought into general u as it is impossible to imagine anything that could be used better adapted to the purpose for whi they are intended, or more likely to facilitate the carrying out of the Ordinance with advantage. T two points I have constantly kept in view being rapidity of employinent combined with an effect and searching examination, I believe that I have succeeded in attaining these objects. This, howev is no place in which to describe the instruments themselves.

Table XI. shows the approximative estimate of the mortality among the Foreign Residents It does not include Deaths among Soldiers, Sail Hongkong during the past thirteen years. whether of the Navy or Merchant Service, nor those buried from the Hospitals, who are usually r Residents. It has no pretension to accuracy, nor can it be any more than approximative, until s system of Registration of Deaths is introduced. This is a matter of the greatest importance really of more interest to every Resident in the Colony than is generally supposed, for until possible to obtain proper statistics, of the actual mortality and the cause of death, in all case valuable aid is withdrawn from the medical practitioner in the treatment of disease.

Table XII. gives the usual information regarding the work performed by the Inspecto Nuisances attached to this Department.

Table XIII. shows the Annual Mean State of the Atmosphere during the year 1870, as reco at the Government Civil Hospital.

H. M.'s HOSPITAL SHIP Melville,

HONGKONG, December 28th, 1870.

My Dear Sir,-As you are about to leave this Colony for a time, I would beg to address a few words to you on the sub- et of the working of the Contagious Diseases Ordinance, carried out under your inspection. During the years 1849-50 and 11, I was Surgeon of the Reynard, Sloop of War on the China Station, and though unfortunately I am not in possession of ay Journal for that vessel, I have a vivid remembrance of the sufferings of the crew from syphilitic disease in Hongkong. On very cccasion when the men had leave on shore, a large proportion of them became affected with the disease, which showed itself in the form both of hard Chancre, and large Phagaedenic sores. Secondary symptoms were also of frequent occurrence, ften requiring the patients to be invalided and sent home. The altered state of things at the present time is very striking. During the year and nine months that I have had charge of this Hospital, I have not seen a case of regular Hunterian Chancre contracted in Hongkong, and only a few soft sores which healed readily. Judging from my own experience, I should say that Syphilis has all but disappeared from the Colony, and I have no hesitation moreover in attributing this success to your qarticular method of examination, which I have repeatedly witnessed. The instruments used by you are admirably adapted Er bringing into view the parts, including the O and Cervix Uteri, very quickly, thoroughly and without the least pain to the female. Could a similar system of examination be established in the Treaty Ports of China and Japan, a great boon would Indeed be conferred on the Naval Squadron serving in these waters.

Believe me to be, Dear Sir,

DR. MURRAY.

Colonial Surgeon, Hongkong.

The forms of Secondaries were very mild, amenable to treatment, and left no sign of permanent injury. The above figures speak for themselves, and show the great gain which the enforcement of the Contagious Diseases Act as been to the Government in preserving the health of the men of the Regiment, and I may add that during an experience of 6 years as an Army Medical Officer in all climates, I have not seen a similar immunity. To me it is the more striking as ok back on the prevalence, and terrible severity of the disease which existed in this Colony in 1857, when "Hongkong isease," was a well known bye-word. At times for an entire month there has not been a man reported as suffering, from any rm of Venereal, thus attesting the thorough manner in which the duties in connection with the Contagious Diseases Act ave been carried out, and the efficacy of legislation against this "scourge of humanity hose ever shifting population, native and foreign, must render success unusually difficult.

THE CLIFFS, HONGKONG, January 9th, 1871.

   SIR,-In accordance with your request, conveyed to me in your communication dated January 11th, 1870, desiring specific information regarding the sanitary condition of vessels calling at this place, ballasted with mud, during the year ending December 31st, 1870, I have the honor to submit to you, for transmission to His Excellency The Governor, the following as the result of my observations.

   In the period under review, I have visited 235 vessels in ballast; of the above number, 20 only were ballasted with mud proper; in none of these did disease of any kind occur, or more correctly, the crews were healthy on their arrival in this Port, as in each case they were mustered for inspection. In all, the mud was taken from the river near Shanghai.

   124 of the total number came from Yokohama, Japan, ballasted either with ordinary soil, obtained from a hill side, or with muddy shingle, taken from the beach. Although such ballast is not (strictly speaking) mud, I mention it here, seeing that, of the ships so ballasted, eight had Typhus Fever on board. The first infected vessel arrived on the 10th February, the last on the 11th May, being confined to the season of the year when Epideinic Contagious Diseases generally occur. All the cases, as soon as discovered, were removed to Stone Cutters' Island, and the ships placed in quarantine till thoroughly disin- fected; no fresh cases presented themselves among the remainder of the crews, after the removal of the Fever-stricken patients. Regarding thie Fever, I may state that it was unmistakeable Typhus, running the recognized course, only ending fatally in one of the 13 cases treated.

   It is difficult from such data, to conclude positively that the Ballast used, was the primary, or even the exciting cause, of the Fever, as Typhus was prevalent at the same season in 1869; in both years, cases occured in the foreign settlement at Yokohama, where other influences must have been at work.

   It is, however, significant that no Typhus Fever was reported while the vessels had cargo on board, general or otherwise. The subject is deserving of further investigation.

I have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

SI-A question having been raised as to the course that should be followed in determining the day to be appointed for the celebration of Her Majesty's Birthday in the Colonies, when circumstances render the 24th May an inconvenient day for that purpose, I have been in communication with the Secretary of State for War and the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty on the subject, and Mr. CARDWELL and their Lordships concur with me in the opinion that it is desirable that the selection of a convenient day should rest with the Officer Administering the Government in each Colony, the day so to be fixed being not more than a week before or after the 24th May.

      In the event of your finding it expedient to appoint a day other than the 24th May for the cele- bration of this anniversary, you will give early intimation thereof to the Officers in Command of Her Majesty's Military and Naval Forces (if any) in the Colony, and make it known to the people in the usual and most public manner.-I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient humble Servant.

        Copy of a Circular Letter addressed to the Society's Medical Assistants by order of the Committee. The Committee, in returning their most cordial and grateful thanks to those Medical Gentlemen who have gratuitously given their time and attention towards the fulfilment of the objects of the ROYAL HUMANE SOCIETY, beg leave to offer the following observations for the favour of their careful consideration.

    However nearly the resuscitative process recommended by the Royal Humane Society may now approach towards perfection, much may yet be effected by close attention to those symptoms which occur during the progress of recovery, and the changes which may result from the means employed.

Many interesting restorations from apparent death have been communicated to the Committee with no other narrative than "that the means recommended by the Society were employed." But, in order to ascertain the real efficacy of the methods so adopted, a more minute history of the case would be very acceptable, especially with reference to the following data, viz.:

The time of actual submersion.*

The appearance of the body.

Resuscitative process employed.

The first and progressive symptoms of returning animation.

Aud the time from commencement of the restorative plan to a return of animation.

* As it is seldom possible to ascertain this by direct means, the mode by which the time of submersion is calculated should be also stated.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH FEBRUARY, 1871.

On the next Vote for "Miscellaneous Services" being proposed, The Honorable The Colonial Secretary, by desire of His Excellency The Lieutenant-Governor, suggests that this Vote, which is put down on the Estimates at $29,000, be increased by $3,500, being the amount of the Contribution promised by the Government towards the erection of a larger Chancel in Saint John's Cathedral, the first Stone of which was laid by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on the 16th of November, 1869.

Discussion follows.

The Correspondence on the subject is then produced, and it appearing from it that His Excellency Sir RICHARD MACDONNELL'S promise to contribute the sum named was conditional upon an equal amount being raised by the Community and paid into one of the Banks,-a condition which has not as yet been fully complied with,-it is generally agreed, that the promised Contribution on behalf of the Government should form the subject of future consideration by this Council.

Whereupon, it is Resolved that a Sum not exceeding $29,000 be appropriated to defray. the Expense of "Miscellaneous Services."

It is also Resolved, that a Sun not exceeding $94,000 be appropriated to meet the amount of "Military Contribution."

The Estimates having gone through Committee, and the Appropriation Bill being amended in accordance with the foregoing Votes, His Excellency The Lieutenant-Governor puts the Question that this Bill as amended do pass, and that the Title be--"An Ordinance enacted by The Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to apply a Sum not exceeding Six hundred and Eighty-seven thousand Dollars to the Public Service of the Year 1871.

Question put and carried, the Ordinance being numbered "No. 15 of 1870.”

The Honorable The Colonial Secretary, by desire of His Excellency, submits that a further Sum of $1,000 is required to defray the Cost of the maintenance of the Colonial Steamer Victoria to the end of the current year; and the Expenditure of the sum named is sanctioned by the Council.

On the representation of the Colonial Secretary, the Council also sanctions an Expenditure not

exceeding $670 for the overhauling and caulking of the Gunpowder Hulk.

The Bill relating to Breach of Conditional Pardon, is read a Second time, amended in Com- mittee, and passed,-bearing the Title of "An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to provide for the Trial and Punishment of Offenders, not being Subjects of China, to whom a Pardon has been granted under Ordinance No. 1 of 1860, and who may be found at large within the Colony in Violation of the Condition of such Fardor,"-being No. 16 of 1870.

The Bill respecting Crown Fees is read a Second time, committed, and passed with certain verbal ainendments, bearing the Title of "An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to empower the Governor in Council to reduce, vary, and in certain Cases to remit and refund the Amount of Fees payable for the Use of the Govern- ment of the Colony"-being "No. 17 of 1870."

The Honorable The Attorney General, Chairman of the Special Committee appointed to examine and report upon the Clauses of the Bill to amend the Law respecting Pawnbrokers, brings up their Report, and the same is read and received.

The Report is as follows:-

?

"The Special Committee of the Legislative Council of Hongkong, appointed by His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor to examine and report upon the Clauses of the Bill to amend the Law respecting Pawnbrokers, which was read a first time at the meeting of the Honorable Council, held on the 28th day of July last, have the honor to report as follows:-

"The Committee are of opinion that the following Concessions should be granted to Pawnbrokers:-

"Firstly. That they should be relieved from the Liability to make good the Loss of Pledges which may be stolen without any Default on their part, before the Period of Redemp- tion, and therefore that Section XVIII of No. 3 of 1860 should be repealed as proposed in the Bill, so as to leave the Rights and Liabilities of the Parties on this subject, as they now exist by the Common Law of England.

LL

Secondly.-That a Provision should be introduced in the Bill relieving Pawnbrokers from the Liability to forfeit their License at the discretion of a Magistrate for the Offences mentioned in Sub-sections 1, 3 and 4 of Section XXIV of Ordinance No. 3 of 1860, but that a Power to cancel the License in Gross Cases of Misconduct should be reserved to the Governor in Council in whom alone, the Power to grant the Licenses is now vested.

?

"On the other hand the Committee are of opinion that Pawnbrokers should no longer be entitled to the absolute forfeiture of Pledges at the Expiration of Three Months (or Six in case of renewal) without regard to the value of the Pledge, but that they should have a Power of sale at the Expiration of One Month from the Period of Redemption, and that within Six

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH FEBRUARY, 1871.

77

Months from such Period, they should be liable to pay the Surplus, if any, arising from such ale, to the Borrower. The Surplus to be forfeited to the Pawnbroker unless claimed within such Period of Six Months.

     The Committee also recommend that enactments to the following Effect be retained or introduced, as the case may be, into the Bill:-

1. That Pledges may be made for Six Months, and renewed indefinitely for Periods not

exceeding Six Months at a time.

9. That in the absence of any Special Agreement, a Loan shall be deemed to have been made or renewed for Six Months, but that the Borrower may redeem at any time before the sale of the Pledge.

3. That in addition to the Particulars now required to be recorded in the General Book and Pawn Ticket, the date of each Loan, and the Terms of any Renewal thereof, shall be likewise entered, and also accurate Particulars of any Gold or Silver Articles or of any Jewellery which may be taken in Pledge.

4. That false entries of any Particulars should render the Pawnbroker liable (in addition to the Fine now imposed) to forfeiture of all interest in both the Loan and the Pledge. 5. That the Governor in Council should have Power to direct Public Sales of unredeemed Pledges, excepting Articles which having regard to their Description or Value, it may not seem expedient to include. The Committee while approving of Public Sales of unredeemed Pledges, are disposed to think that the introduction of the system among the Chinese being experimental, it should be brought into force for a certain Period by Order in Council, so as to obviate the necessity of fresh Legislation in the event of it being found not to work satisfactorily.

6. That the amount of the Proceeds of every unredeemed Pledge, sold by the Pawn- broker, shall be entered in the General Book, and that the Borrower shall be entitled to inspect such Entry at any time before the forfeiture of the Surplus.

7. That Pawnbrokers be prohibited from taking unfinished Goods in Pledge.

8. That Pawnbrokers be required to affix in a conspicuous part of their Shop a Copy in

Chinese of Section XVII of Ordinance No. 3 of 1860.

9. That Section VIII of Ordinance No. 13 of 1867, (an isolated Section relating to Pawn- brokers introduced in an Ordinance relating to Naval and Victualling Stores) be repealed, and its Provisions substantially re-enacted in the Bill now under consideration. 10. That Power be given to the Governor in Council to make Orders for better carrying

out the Provisions of the Law respecting Pawnbrokers.

"In conclusion, the Committee have the honor to submit to His Excellency The Lieu- tenant-Governor a Copy, annexed to this Report, of an Amended Bill embodying the above Recommendations."

"JULIAN PAUNCEFOTE. "HUGH BOLD GIBB. "PHINEAS RYRIE."

“Council Chamber, Hongkong, the 27th day of October, 1870.”

It is then resolved that the Original Bill be withdrawn, and that the above Report, together with the amended Bill submitted by the Special Committee, be published in the Government Gazette for general information, -with a Notification to the Public, that the said amended Bill will be laid before the Legislative Council, and read a first time after the expiration of one month from

this date.

At the conclusion of the Proceedings, His Excellency directs a Record to be nade on to-day's Minutes of Two written Statements which had been transmitted to him by The Honorable The Chief Justice, as provided by Article VIII of Her Majesty's Instructions.

The said written Statements are as follows:--

To His Excellency

"Major-General WHITFEILD, Lieutenant-Governor,

ge., &c., &c.

I deemed and am of opinion that an Ordinance of which I under cover of a Letter on the 5th of August, 1870, a Draft sent to the Honorable the Colonial Secretary entituled "An dance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to make Provision for the more effectual Suppression of Gaming" is a Law fit to be enacted by the Legislative Council, and that it ought to be proposed for a first reading at the Legislative Council to be held on the 11th of November, 1870.

"I have in my said Letter of the 8th and in another Letter of the 15th of August last, Both addressed to the Colonial Secretary, set forth at large some of the reasons upon which my *pinion is founded.

Among my reasons for this Ordinance are shortly the following:

..

78

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH FEBRUARY, 1871.

"That keeping Gaming House being by English Law criminal it is at least very ques- tionable whether the Ordinance of No. of 18 authorises the Governor to license some Houses for Gaming, and that it is contrary to Law to create a Monopoly even in fair trade much less in Crime without an express and clear Enactment and that therefore such Licensing should be discontinued.

"That the sole object of issuing the Licenses was to decrease Gambling, whereas it has very greatly increased that vice.

That it has caused and fostered very serious Crimes, and that Suicides have been hand to it. "That the Gambling Houses have been too numerous, Fifteen in Hongkong. At the worst times at Paris there were only Eight and in the few places in Germany in which Gambling is allowed One only usually exists.

"That as I have fully expressed in my Letter to you of the 8th August last, I deduce from the figures contained in Official Returns by His Excellency the Governor that over $5,000,000 were in Two Years only won by Gamblers before the Licensees were recouped the amount paid by them for their Licenses, that at least an equal sum was won from them making the total over $10,000,000 and that it is to be presumed, that the Gambling Licensees gained as much as they paid the Government in order to cover their expenses and to pay them a profit for their disreputable trade. The amount must therefore be doubled and over $20,000,000, has it would seem been lost and won across the Gaming Tables of Hongkong within the Two first years of the Licensing system. From like data if the Tables are open for 7 days in the week, I calculate that Asiatics have made over 10,000,000 of visits to these Houses within Two years.

   There may be errors in these calculations, but under any calculation a mass of Gambling is represented unequalled according to population anywhere destructive to the honest labors of the Gamblers and withdrawing from time to time these large amounts from legitimate trade and commerce and thus tending to empoverish and destroy trade in Hongkong as all amit like practices have empoverished and destroyed trade in Macao.

"That from my experience on the bench I infer that a tone of dishonesty has been engendered by Gaming Houses in petty tradesmen as well as the lowest class, and that this tone has infused itself into and demoralised the Police.

"That Gambling is a Crime in China as well as in England and that the actual licensing of it being a Crime, lowers the prestige of the English Government and name more especially seeing that it was actually put down by a good Governor, lately in Canton Province.

"That the due suppression if not eradication of Gaming has been successfully effected in the Straits Settlements as I was informed by a Police Magistrate and Superintendent of Police there--and that like care can without the Licensing system keep it under here. That the Licensing system introduced avowedly as in itself an evil, but a lesser evil than the evils then existing has not licensed those evils, whilst it has itself been an enormous evil-that as an experiment it has failed and ought to be suppressed which the Ordinance proposes to do.

"That Gaming in England has been effectually dealt with by stringent Statutes four in number not one of which has been made Law here. The proposed Ordinance proposes mainly to embody these Statutes making them Law here."

"To His Excellency

"Major-General WHITFEILD,

Lieutenant-Governor,

&c., &c., &c.

"I deem and am of opinion that the question raised by the Resolution following, that is to say:-

"Resolved that a Committee of this Council be now appointed to enquire into the state "of the Police and into the constitution and duties and mode of payment of the Force called "District Watchmen and of the body of men designated Mr. CALDWELL'S Informers and of "the causes why perpetrators of crime have in many cases remained undiscovered-that His Excellency The Lieutenant-Governor is hereby requested to cause a copy of the first and "second or amended Reports of Messrs. SMITH, MAY and MITCHELL, Commissioners appointed "by His Excellency the Governor, to be laid before such Committee, and that the Committee "do make a Report to this Council and that the consideration of the item 'Police Depart- "ment $172,395.20' be postponed until after the receipt of such Report, is proper to be de- "bated at the Legislative Council, to be held on the 11th day of November, 1870."

"My reasons upon which the above opinion is founded are among others because I believe that-

"The Police Force has become demoralised one main cause of which my experience as Judge leads me to trace to the debasing influence of the Gaming Houses and of Gaming therein on all the lower classes.

"That this demoralised state first forced itself on my attention as largely affecting the Police in the HOLWORTHY murder and Sowkewan murder cases, in both of which the hope of obtaining Government rewards led to conspiracies to convict innocent men of murder in which the Police were implicated and which they concurred in originating.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH FEBRUARY, 1871. 79

"That it has been further manifested in other cases of conspiracy as in the stealing of the Captain Superintendent DEANE'S watch and the attempt to fix the felonious possession of the watch on an innocent man, and also in various cases of extortion and other crimes.

     "In some of these cases European in nearly all Asiatic and especially Chinese Constables were implicated.

"That it has appeared to me that among the Seikh Constables unnatural crimes have been not unfrequent and that they have in this respect demoralised the Chinese. One member of that Force is now in Gaol for life, contaminating by his presence even the worst inmates of that place. That they are stupid and though strong, from their crass ignorance very inefficient. "That by Ordinance the force called District Watchmen are by virtue of their nomination constituted Constables that the Funds mainly supporting that force are raised by an illegal assessment on the Chinese, and that although they are subject to the Jurisdiction of the Regis- trar General whose duties are alien to Police duties they are mainly under an independent body of Chinese shopkeepers who however well intentioned are not trustworthy for such purposes. And that the Force contains objectionable characters to whom it is dangerous to the Colony to give the powers of Constables. And that on enquiry other reasons will appear for the suppression of this Force one of which is that all Persons having the powers of Con- stables should be under the central power of Mr. DEANE.

"That I believe it will be found that one main cause of the inefficiency of the Police is that the English Inspectors and others do not speak Chinese. In India, in Ceylon, and in Japan it is required of all Officials to learn the native language.

     "That a body of men called Mr. CALDWELL'S Informers are paid by and are really the servants of the wealthy Chinese Licensees of the Gaming Houses and that these Licensees have obtained by means of these Informers power over honest nen as well as over the Criminal classes of which one instance appears in the Daily Press of 22nd February last; and that this power has been rendered more certain by the direction therein copied by the head of the Police to all Police Officers to obey the directions of the bearer of the piece of paper unnamed, thus in effect constituting in the Masters of these Informers an imperium in imperis of the regular Police.

"That a Commission having on my statement been issued to Messrs. SMITH, MAY, and MITCHELL, and they having made one Report and afterwards an amended Report, they were put aside. The result should have been made known at least to the Members of the Legisla- tive Council in order that in voting the supplies, the Council might give such Advice to the Executive as the facts elicited might call for and that not having received such Report that the Council should investigate the facts for themselves through a Committee."

Hongkong, 11th November, 1870."

His Excellency then adjourns the Council at 5 o'clock.

Read and confirmed, this 23rd Day of February, 1871.

SHIPPING.

2. In my last Report I was enabled to show an improved state of the Trade of the Colony as compared with the preceding year.

   3. It is satisfactory to find that the year under review exhibits a still further improvement, although the fortnightly French Mail has ceased running; and the Pacific Mail Steam-ship Company have not as yet increased the number of their vessels, but there seems every prospect that such will shortly be the case.

4. The gross increase of Ships and Tonnage on the year 1869 is 2,433 Vessels, with a carrying capacity of 311,028 Tons. Of this increase, there are 20,543 tons from Great Britain; 48,349 tons from India; 28,436 tons from Siam; 86,615 tons from Japan; 32,166 tons from Macao; and 109,594 tons from the Ports in China and Formosa; whilst from other places, there is a decrease.

   5. Of the ships of different Nations arriving at this Port, it will be seen that there is a marked increase in those under the British Flag, consisting of 133 Vessels and 161,520 Tons. The Number and Tonnage of Vessels under the French and American Flags have also increased, whilst those under the North-German Flag, in consequence of the War, have 87 vessels with 26,148 tons less than in 1869, and this large diminution is but the effect of a few months' hostilities.

   6. To this Report I have appended a Comparative Statement of the Trade of the Colony during the several years I have been connected with Hongkong.

   7. Some idea can be formed of the necessity for increasing the number of Employ?s of this De- partrient when it is seen that the total of Arrivals and Departures, combined, in 1870, is 62,572 Vessels and 5,864,514 Tons as against 2,179 Vessels and 1,164,640 Tons in 1859, or 2,771 per cent more Vessels' movements are recorded, and 403 per cent more Tons are registered now than in the year brought forward for purposes of comparison.

JUNK TRADE.

   8. In my last Report on this subject, I attributed the then falling off of this Trade to the effect of the Customs' Stations in the vicinity of the Colony. Whether it is that the Officers in charge of them are less zealous in the performance of their duties, or that brighter days have dawned on the Com- mercial prosperity of the Colony, I am unable to say, beyond, that the latter would seem probable. But certain it is, that Trade in native bottoms has increased, and now stands at its highest since the "Harbor and Coasts' Ordinance, 1866" was introduced.

   9. The former opponents of this measure, it is to be hoped, will now rest satisfied that its antici- pated baneful effects have not been realised, but that on the contrary, the general trade of the Colony, whether Native or Foreign, is in a highly healthy condition, and Piracy, once so rife in these waters, and their neighborhood, is now seldom, if ever, heard of.

EMIGRATION.

   10. Under this heading, there is a sensible decrease, amounting to 3,460 men, 1,549 women, 204 boys and 80 girls.

   11. The opposition evinced in the United States of America to the introduction of Chinese labor is having its effect, whether for good or evil remains to be seen..

12. Emigration under Contract is at present prohibited at Hongkong, except to British Pos- sessions, but to these the restrictions and difficulties are so great, that only 70 Chinese left, for Labuan, during the year.

I have the honor to be,

Sir,

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

       The following Annual Report on the state of the Government Schools in Hongkong for the Year 1870, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 13th March, 1871.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG, 28th February, 1871.

        SIR,--I have the honour to forward to you the Annual Report on the Schools in this Colony under Government supervision during the year 1870.

       2. The state in which these schools are will be best scen by considering them under the following livision:-The Central School, The Village Schools supported by Government, and The Schools eceiving Grants-in-aid.

3. A reference to the Tables which are subjoined will show that the Central School continues o maintain its ground in point of numbers, the average for the year being a little higher than for any previous year. Apprehensions of a falling off in the attendance may be said to have disappeared. The commercial prosperity of the Colony can hardly fall to a lower ebb than it has been at during he last few years, and, this being so, and the boys looking forward solely to mercantile employment, lepression of trade, unless carried to a much further extent than has yet been experienced, can hard- be expected to interfere with the prosperity of the school. It is to be hoped that this is an indica- on of some appreciation of the school for its own sake rather than for any mere money-making for which it may be considered a preparation.

4. The highest attendance was in June, when there were 248 on the roll for the month. The owest was in January when the number was 208. The average for the year was 237. There is ery little cause for complaint about irregularity. It would be difficult to find, anywhere, a school the size more regularly attended. Sickness is the principal cause of absence, but even that prevails to a very small extent. The only absences which cause annoyance are those necessitated by some amily matter, a marriage or a funeral. In such a case, nothing less than a month is thought suffi

nt, and, sometimes, no persuasion, not even a threat, avails to reduce the period of leave below weeks. Nothing could more clearly show the extraordinarily little value which the Chinese set on time, except, perhaps, what is seen at some of the villages, where many of the children leave chool at the end of the Tenth Month, because it is then the end of the year.

year. Of recent years, the amber of long absences has been decreasing and this is probably duc, in a great measure, to the fact the school holidays are fixed to suit the two most important Chinese Holidays, those, namely, the New Year and the Tomb Festival.

5. The greatest number of absentees was in August, when they amounted to 17; but, of these, 13 were absent from continued illness. The smallest number was in February, when there were 5, of m 3 were sick. The average number of such absentees for the year was 12 per month. Taking things into consideration, this number is exceedingly limited.

Paper

6. The result of the year's work was, as usual, tested by written examinations in all the classes.. is set on each subject which the class has been taught during the year and those who get than one third of the total number of marks assigned to the subjects of their class are considered aving failed. The total number of such failures in the six English classes was 20, or an average about 3 to each class. Even this proportion, though small, is not due entirely to idleness, but ses, in the majority of cases, from promotion to a higher class but a few months before the exami- Another cause of failure is found in the case of boys other than Chinese. Thesc, knowing at little of Chinese, lose the marks assigned for translation from and into that language..

116

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18TH MARCH, 1871.

    7. It would occupy too much space either to give the examination lists and papers or to analyse them minutely. They are, however, all recorded and are available at any time when required. The boys themselves take great interest in these lists. They carefully note the number of marks they have gained in each particular subject and take them as a guide to future study. The masters, too, look forward to the results with no little anxiety, as they find in them a test of their success or failure in teaching. The work of examination is necessarily very laborious, but what is gained by it more than compensates for the unusual exertion.

?.

8. The first or highest class was examined in ten subjects,-Algebra, Arithmetic, Chemistry, Dictation, English Composition, Geography, Geometry, Grammar, Translation from Chinese into English, and Translation from English into Chinese. The total number of marks assigned to these subjects was 780, and the marks gained by the first six on the list were respectively 683, 669, 669, 655, 643, and 633. After these, nine had over 500, six over 400, and four over 360 marks.

9. The other classes were examined on the same subjects,--Algebra, Chemistry, and Geometry excepted, these being confined, at presunt, exclusively to the senior class. The general result of way in which the examinations, previously referred to, must suffice, in this Report, for indicating the these classes passed.

    10. The Chemistry class, after a full year's experience, can now be reported on with some confidence. The course for the year embraced the most important of the non-actallic clements. No text-book has as yet been used and it is a doubtful point whether one should be used, because the oral instruction given both ensures attention on the part of the class and is also a test of their knowledge of English, the only language which is spoken.. The class has been conducted in this way. On Saturday, a lesson is given with experiments. On Monday, the boys bring in English an account of what they have heard and seen,-on exercise which serves the double purpose of fixing the lesson on their minds and of practising them in composition. In the course of the week, an hour is devoted to oral examination on the last, and a revisal of the preceding, subjects. There can be no hesitation in saying that this part of the school work is thoroughly enjoyed and, if one may judge by the papers written at the examination, not unprofited by.

11. The three junior classes are now taught the elements of Music, but this has been too lately introduced to permit of any report on the progress made. One lesson of one hour a week is all that has yet been attempted, although it is very questionable if such short time gives either class or subject fair play. At the same time, it is impossible at the Central School, where a language has to be acquired, to give the same time to such subjects as is given in schools where only one language is required of the scholars and that their mother-tongue.

12. Drawing will be commenced in the three senior classes as soon as the materials arrive from England. There will then be an extra subject for each of the English masters,--for the Head 7 need not Master chemistry, for the Second Master drawing, and for the Third Master music. Say. that these will be treated strictly as extra subjects. Nothing must be allowed to interfere with or, at least, to impede the learning of English.

   13. The number of boys other than Chinese is gradually increasing and, in a few years, will necessitate another master and an additional class-room. There are now 5 English, 2 Portuguese, 2 Japanese, and 14 Indian boys. The number of half-caste boys, too, has lately increased consider- ably. With this difference, that they are of a livelier temperament, owing probably to a less restrained up-bringing, and that they can enunciate more easily and clearly than their Chinese school- fellows, due no doubt to their being accustomed from their infancy to the jargon which passes for English here, there is not much to distinguish them from those of purely Chinese descent. If any- thing, they are rather worse to manage, but when one considers the extreme docility of Chinese boys this trait scarcely deserves a passing notice. A school of Chinese boys is a disciplinarian's paradise.

   14. In the course of the year, 95 boys left school. Of these, 40 are in business, some as inter- preters, some as clerks, some as assistant compradores, some as assistants in Chinese shops, some as brokers, printers, and so on. Some have gone to California, some to Japan, others to Tientsin, Shanghai, Foochow, Canton, Macao, Saigon, Annam, and Bombay, while 25 remain in Hongkong. Of the remainder, 8 left on account of sickness, 18 left the Colony along with their parents, 14 were removed from the roll principally for irregularities, 6 went to Chinese schools, 6 left for causes un- known, 1 was poor, I died, and 1 was married. Why the last should have considered himself excused it is difficult to say, for nearly all in the first class and many of those in the second are

married.

   15. There is nothing special to report in connection with the Chinese classes. They are three in number and under three very competent masters. The same time is devoted to Chinese as to English, that is, four hours a day to each. Every effort is made, by weekly revisals and occasional examinations, to ensure as much attention to this part of the work as to that of the English classes; and this is the more necessary, as a good deal of latent opposition has to be encountered in the teaching of Chinese in the school. The people have very deeply rooted notions of their own as to the selection of masters and the number of scholars whom one master should teach; and teaching by classes, while admitted to be very good in the teaching of English is declared to be altogether unsuitable for the teaching of Chinese. Patience and perseverance will enable the school to outlive these prejudices..

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18TH MARCH, 1871.

117

       16. The Preparatory Class, which was established to secure a certain knowledge of both Eng- lish and Chinese before admission into the regular classes, has given proof of the usefulness which was expected of it. The master-ship of this class is given as a reward to one of the best scholars taught in the school. Under him, the boys learn the elements of reading, writing, and arithmetic, as a preparation for the English classes; and, under one of the Chinese masters, who take this class alternately, they are prepared for the Chinese classes.

17. The school-fees for the year amounted to $1,701.65, of which the sum of $1,460.75 was paid into the Treasury, and $240.90, being the fees paid by the Preparatory Class, went to the pay- ment of the teacher of that class.

18. There only remains, under this division, to acknowledge, on behalf of the school in general and of successful scholars in particular, the liberality of the Honourable C. C. SMITH, Dr. MURRAY, Mr. HAYLLAR, Mr. GERRARD, Mr. WAI KWONG, and Mr. KwOK CHEUNG, who added so largely to the Prize Fund. While there is, no doubt, a good deal of hard work on the part of the boys, due to a desire for respectable and lucrative employment, the incentive to diligence produced by the valuable prizes which are given annually is of the most marked character. It is gratifying to be able to state that, next year, the list of donors will be considerably increased. These and others of the community would add greatly to. their kindness by coming and making personal experience of what the boys can or cannot do. It is matter of regret that while so many give liberally, so few care to come and judge of the school for themselves. This is not said from any desire to parade the school, than which nothing could be more distasteful, but it is not unnatural to wish that the public knew exactly what an institution is worth which needs so large a sum of the public money for its support

19. The Village Schools, which are free schools supported entirely by Government, are twelve in number. They stand in the following order of efficiency, as tested by an examination of cach school.

1. Stanley.

2. Sai-ying P'?n, (P?n-ti.)

3. Girls' School.

4. Bowrington.

5. Sai-ying P'?n, (Hak-ka.) 6. Webster's Crescent.

7. Tang-lung Chau, (P?n-ti.) 8. Aberdeen.

9. West End.

10. Tang-lung Chau, (Hak-ka ) 11. Wong-nai Chung. 12. Sh?u-ki W?n.

20. These, as has been said in previous Reports, are Chinese schools, pure and simple. Chinese books alone are used and the mode of instruction is such as would be found in any native village school in China. But, this has been too often noticed to need repetition.

       21. The great aim in the supervision of these schools is to see that what is taught is taught me- thodically and well, that regularity, and especially punctuality, be attended to, and that cleanliness be not forgotten. It would perhaps be difficult to fix any precise amount of improvement from one year to another; but, on looking back over the last nine years, evidences of progress are not wanting. The Chinese are very slow to appreciate anything which is not precisely as they are accustomed to it, and in nothing is their conservatism so apparent as in education. Foreigners may know some- thing of other matters, especially if they have reference to trade, but, in the matter of education, the dullest villager and the most ignorant boat-woman loudly proclaim their superiority, without the slightest suspicion of its being questioned. They know exactly what books their children are to read, and when and how they are to be read, the opinion of all foreigners to the contrary notwithstanding.

22. The school buildings are good and suitable, except those at Bowrington and Stanley. I had hoped to see these two re-appear on the Estimates. A new school-house at Stanley is greatly needed, but one at Bowlington is an absolute necessity, as has been pointed out on previous occasions. The number of scholars taught at the school, during the year, was 92. The highest number on the roll, on any one month, was 76, the lowest 56, and 63 was the average for the year.

                                             Yet this large number has to be accommodated in the upper floor of a small, low-roofed, ill-ventilated, Chinese house. I cannot forego this opportunity of, once more, calling the attention of the Government to the necessity of proceeding with the erection of the proposed school-house at Bowrington.

23. Three masters died in the course of the year,—those at Sh?u-ki W?n, at the IIak-ka school at Tang-lung Chau, and at the P?n-ti school at Sai-ying P'?n. The last had been a Government school-master for upwards of ten years and had always a very good school. There was one dismissal, that of the master at Sh?u-ki W?n, the predecessor of the one that died. This has always been a wretched school as regards attendance. It was thought advisable, as the Hak-kas showed so little ppreciation of it, to allow the P?n-tis a chance, but last year's experience does not inspire much fidence as to the benefit of the change. The schools at Aberdeen and Wong-nai Ch'ung are con- tinual sources of disappointment, but they are good schools when compared with the one at Sh?n-ki

W?n.

24. The P?n-ti school at Tang-lung Chau, after being for many years at the head of the Village Schools, has lately been very unfortunate. For situation, the healthiest, apparently, of all the schools, O fewer than three masters have died within the short period since the new school was opened. Other masters of the school have had long periods of serious illness, and several of the scholars have died. As death after death occurs, the superstitious fears of the children are increased and the with- drawals become more and more numerous. There is no apparent remedy for this, but a change for the better is greatly desiderated.

118

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18? MARCH, 1871.

   25. The Schools in receipt of Grants-in-aid are now 11 in number. Five were added during the year.

These are the schools at Shek Sh?n, Hok Un, Yau-ma Ti, Ma-t'an Ch'ung, and the Elak- ka School at T'o-kwa W?n. The whole may be arranged in the following order :--

1. Ap-li Chau.

2. Ma-t'au Ts'?n.

3. T'o-kwa W?n, (Hak-ka.) · 4. Little Hongkong.

5, Ma-tau Ch’ung.

6. Mong Kok.

7. Yau-ma Ti. 8. Hok ?n.

9. Hung Hon. 10. T'o-kwa W?n. 11. Shek Sh?n.

26. Ap-li Chau which, in 1869 had simply a free site, received last year a grant-in-aid, the site being abandoned. This is by far the best of these schools and if classified with the whole of the Village Schools, without regard to grant or otherwise, would stand ninth in order.

The highest number of scholars on the roll was 41 and the lowest 30. The regular attendance averaged 31.

   27. These schools differ from the ordinary Village Schools simply in this, that the villagers provide the school-house and select the master, who gets, or is supposed to get, one half of his salary, in kind, from the parents of his scholars and the other half, amounting to sixty dollars a year, Government.

from

   28. It was thought, at the commencement, that this system of grants-in-aid would meet many difficulties and might probably be extended in time to all the Village Schools. It enables the villagers to choose their own school-master, a privilege which they consider peculiarly their own and which they very reluctantly resign. It was thought, also, that by having to provide one half the master's salary they would be more anxious to have their children taught by way of a return for the expense incurred, and that they would be a check on the master,--a safeguard, I am sorry to say, not so unnecessary as it might be.

   29. These hopes are a long way from their realization. Application for a grant-in-aid in too many cases means simply a source of revenue to the village. Government is a fair object for plunder. The want of a school is first discerned by a needy and place-less school-master. The next step is a circuit of the village, full of promises of many good things to come. The next is a petition, composed by himself, but purporting to be from the villagers, setting forth the poverty of the village as extreme, the ignorance of the children as appalling and the merits of the aspiring school-master as unparalleled. The last step is a deputation for the presentation of the petition. All this is, outwardly, as it should be; brt, behind so much fair seeming, there has been no lack of chicanery, -a hard driven bargain on the part of the villagers for so much hard cash for the privilege of teaching their children, but proba- bly taking the form of so much rent for the school-house, albeit the petition distinctly states that the village provides the school-house free.

   30. When the master is appointed, everything goes well for several months, perhaps for the whole year, but, by that time, envy has done its work. Another candidate appears and larger pro- mises are made or exacted. The petition is now to the effect that the master is as bad as he was formerly good and that the new candidate is the only man who can repair the injury done to the school. When any reluctance is shown to comply with the request, it is pretty plainly intiinated that if the new man is not accepted there will be no children at school next year.

   31. Something of this nature is now going on at Little Hongkong. The master there was the people's choice some years ago. It so happens that the Ti-po of the village has a son who aspires to the office of school-master. Towards the end of the year, the Ti-po headed a deputation from the village and presented a petition against the present school-master and in favour of the aspiring one. The catalogue of the former's demerits was long, but not longer than that of the latter's merits. attempt was made to convince the deputation that they were greatly to blame for not making the charges at the time the faults were alleged to have occurred, thus giving an opportunity of enquiring into them. They had no time to come and do so was all their answer.

An

   32. The school-master was informed of what had been done and probably taxed the villagers with their deceit, for they soon returned with a complete change of argument. The present master had enjoyed the salary for many years and it was now time that another should have his turn of it. This was not to be listened to and the deputation was plainly told so. Shortly after, the Ti-po returned alone and wanted to know definitely whether the new master would be accepted or not. When told that he certainly would not, the old man retorted so impudently that there should then be no scholars that nothing but his gray hairs saved him from forcible extrusion. A scheme of a similar sort is understood to be maturing at Ma-t'au Ts'?n. As has been often said, the Government is the obliged party when the villagers condescend to let their children learn to read.

   33. Attention is, as usual, called in Table VI to the number of uneducated children in the Colony. This is done simply because it is well to have such a fact fairly presented and fairly looked at. blame is attachable to any one, it is to the parents, because they have only to show the slightest willingness to have their children taught to secure attention to their case. It will probably be suthi- ciently evident from what has already been said that if left to themselves the parents, in the majority of instances, have no great desire for the instruction of their children. If education were made obligatory one point would certainly be gained, but only one. The extreme poverty of many of the people in the villages and in boats would throw on the Government the onus of clothing and feeding, as well as educating, if any compulsory scheme were enacted.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18TH MARCH, 1871.

34. To find an exact parallel to the state of things here we must go back a century or two in the history of our own country. Education there has not had its present extensive diffusion by any fiat. It has been a gradual and a very gradual process. We have the whole of that gradual process to go through in Hongkong, although there is a tendency in most of us to forget or ignore that fact, and to imagine that the nineteenth century in England means the nineteenth century in Hongkong, or, which comes to the same thing, that there is no reason why what is done in England should not have its exact counterpart here. It is argued, moreover, that education is universal in China and that the orest 'coolie' can read and write. This is one of the many fallacies which prevail on the subject of China and its people. It is only after a certain stage of material comfort has been reached that people

can turn their thoughts to anything which is not material; and, until we have many more eople among the poorer classes in Hongkong who have not to go and earn a meal before they can at it, it is almost folly to discuss comprehensive schemes of education for their benefit. Those who have been in the way of visiting the villages on the mainland say that the state of Hongkong is not peculiar. Every village has its school, but only a fraction of the village children attend it. As the Chinese Government affords then no assistance, those who wish their children taught must take the whole burden of the school-master's salary on themselves. This, in such poverty-stricken places, excludes the very poor, who are by far the majority; and if poor parents, by dint of much self-denial, should be able to send one of the family to school, it is all that they can possibly accomplish. The result is that, while ten or twelve may be found in the school, scores of children are to be seen on the hill-sides tending the cattle.

35. Perhaps the greatest educational want in Hongkong is that of a school, or schools, for European and American children of both sexes. In spite of the facilities afforded by St. Saviour's College and the Convent, many residents must have much difficulty in knowing how to get their children taught. The school need not be a free one. After the preliminary expenses of Site and Building, with which Government might fairly charge itself, the fees would go far to make the school self-supporting. It has been often suggested that the Colonial Chaplain might have such a school under his immediate care, but subject to Government supervision. Under whatever regula- tions it might ultimately be placed, such a school is very much wanted, and it is matter of astonish- ment that parents have not long ago made a strenuous movement in this direction.

36. I have only, in conclusion, to add that I should be very glad if the state of the Village Schools were such as to cuable me to pay them fewer than monthly visits. As the Central School advances my time is more and more required in it. As each additional master has been added more

work has been rendered possible, and as long as the possible is not actual, a school is not in the state in which it ought to be.

I have the honour to remain,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

FREDERICK STEWART. Inspector of Government Schools.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG, 17th March, 1871.

SIR,I have the honor to lay before you for presentation to His Excellency Major General WHITFEILD, Lieutenant-Governor, the eleventh Annual Report on the Post Office, being that for the

Year 1870.

2. The principal changes of interest which have taken place in the Postal Service during the year are as follows, viz. :

124

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18TH MARCH, 1871.

   3. The two Marine Sorters previously employed on the line between Hongkong and Shanghae have been withdrawn for general duty in this Office, and arrangements have been made for completely sorting the Mails for Shanghae before they leave Hongkong. By this change of system the resi- dents of Shanghae obtain the advantage of having their letters, by both the English and French Packets, delivered immediately on arrival, and this without extra charge, the alteration having been made with a view to discourage the transmission of letters outside the Mails. Similar arrangements have been made at the British Post Office at Shanghae to enable the letters for Hongkong to be despatched ready for immediate delivery on their reaching this Office. The Imperial Postinaster General has withdrawn the Officers employed in sorting the homeward Indian, China and Australian Mails, on board the Mediterranean Packets, the Mails from Hongkong are now therefore, subdivided in this Office, so as to facilitate the arrangements made for sorting them on their arrival in England.

   4. The Director General of the Posts in France has consented to a proposal to send Closed Mails by the French Packets between this Office and the British Post Offices at Shanghae and Yokohama, instead of forwarding the correspondence for the community at those Settlements in the Mails for the French Post Offices, thereby accelerating the delivery of the local correspondence.

5. Sanction having been obtained to the Mails from London for Shanghae and Yokohama which are brought to Hongkong by French Packet being delivered over to this Office, advantage has been taken of one or two opportunities of sending the Mails forward to Shanghae earlier than they would have reached their destination by the branch French Packet for Shang hae.

   6. Arrangements have been completed under which correspondence Frought from Batavia by French Packet to Singapore is sent to this Office by the first Packet leaving for Hongkong, instead of, as formerly, awaiting the departure of the next French Packet to China, which involved, in some cases, a delay of twenty days.

   7. Arrangements have been completed under which British Closed Mails between Hongkong and Nagasaki, and between Hongkong and Hiogo, are conveyed from Shanghae and Yokohama respec- tively by means of the United States' Mail Packets; the demand made by the United States' Post Office for their conveyance has however necessitated a small extra rate of postage on correspondence thus conveyed, but the advantages gained for the Public by these arrangements are manifest.

   8. The hour of despatch of the homeward British Mail Packets from Hongkong has been advan- tageously changed from 9 A.M. to Noon, making it conform to the hour of despatch of the French Packets.

   9. With a view to averting the inconvenience which has sometimes been experienced here on account of the late arrival of the British Mail Packets from Yokohama, their departure from Yokohama has been made one day earlier than formerly.

   10. The scale of progression of weight having half an ounce for its unit has been extended to let- ters sent between the British Post Offices in China and Japan, and Manila, Batavia, Saigon, Pondi- cherry, Bangkok, Labuan, Singapore, Penang, Malacca, Ceylon, India, Aden, Suez, Malta and the Ionian Islands; Gibraltar, and Spain and Portugal vi? Gibraltar.

   11. The reduction of the fee upon Registered Letters from six pence to four pence in 1866 was confined to Letters to and from the United Kingdom, but during the past year, this reduction has been applied to Registered Letters addressed to any British Colony, or Foreign Country in transit through the United Kingdom; for instance a letter addressed to the United States of America can now be registered through to its destination for a fee of 16 cents instead of 24 cents as formerly.

   12. In July the outward French Mail Packets commenced to leave Marseilles every alternate Sunday, instead of every fourth Sunday, and a fortnightly French service was also begun on this side, thus affording, in conjunction with the Packets of the Peninsular and Oriental Company, a weekly Mail service to and from the United Kingdom, but soon after the commencement of hostilities between France and Prussia the French line was reduced to one Packet each way every twenty-eight days.

   13. Soon after the breaking out of the war between France and Prussia the difficulties attending the transmission of the Mails through France were such as to necessitate the outward Mails being sent, by way of Belgium and the Brenner to Brindisi, for transmission thence by Italian Packet; the Homeward Mails followed the same route.

   14. The number of letters sent between the United Kingdom and Hongkong by means of the unsubsidized Steamers proceeding through the Suez Canal has been very inconsiderable.

   15. Negotiations are being carried on having for their object a regular exchange of direct Mails between Hongkong and Brindisi, including of course on the one side, correspondence for Italy and the Continent from China and Japan, and on the other, letters from Italy and the States. beyond for Hongkong, China, and Japan.

16. The rates of Commission on Money Orders issued in the United Kingdom on Hongkong, Shanghae and Yokohama have been increased, and although the Commission on Money Orders issued at these places on the United Kingdom has also been increased, the charges are still much less than those made at home. So far, the Revenue derived to the Colony by the introduction of the Money Order system has been unremunerative.

36. The Correspondence on Official business sent from this Department to private individuals and firms, to the Postal Agents at the Ports and to the various Public Offices, has materially increased, as has also the Official correspondence received.

37. Returns are appended, marked A. and B., from which it is satisfactory to notice that the British Mail Packets have arrived with the Mails from home with punctuality, that the average time occupied in making the voyage has been less than it was in the previous year, and that 39 days is the shortest time in which a Mail has been conveyed from London to Hongkong vi? Marseilles, and 38 days vi? Brindisi. The return marked C. shows that 38 days was also the shortest time occupied by the French Packets in delivering a Mail from London. On one occasion, however, the French Packet arrived without a Mail from London. Owing to the communication across France having been interrupted, this Mail had failed to reach Marseilles in time; it was brought forward by the following British Packet.

38. A return, marked D., is appended of the Arrivals and Departures of the United States' Mail Packets at Hongkong, from which it will be observed that the voyage from San Francisco to Hong- kong has been performed five times in 33 days; and that the voyage to San Francisco has been accom- plished on three occasions in 32 days. The average time occupied in the voyage from San Francisco has been 344 days against 354 days in 1869.

The Council meets this day at 11 A.M., pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the Sittings of Council held on the 27th instant, are read and confirmed.

The Council then resolves itself into a Committee, and resumes Consideration of the Bill relating to

the Court of Summary Jurisdiction.

The Honorable The Attorney General explains the remaining Clauses of the Bill, and the same are discussed Clause by Clause and amended.

Clauses 45 and 46 are struck out, and some new Clauses substituted and added in various parts of the Bill.

The Honorable RICHARD ROWETT suggests that some Provision should be introduced into the Bill

for Trial by Jury in the Court of Suminary Jurisdiction in certain cases.

Discussion follows.

The Attorney General states that if The Honorable The Chief Justice has no objection to the Power being conferred upon him of exercising Summary Jurisdiction under the Provisions of the Ordinance in cases over $500 and not exceeding $2,000, he is prepared with two new Clauses which would perhaps meet the views of the Council generally, by enabling Suitors to have cases within those limits decided much more rapidly and inexpensively than at present, and at the same time would empower Suitors in the Summary Jurisdiction Court to have any case tried summarily before The Chief Justice and a Jury, it the Chief Justice should think it a fitting case to be so tried.

The Bill as amended, and the two new Clauses suggested by the Attorney General are ordered to be

printed, and circulated among the Members of Council.

His Excellency adjourns the Council at 20 Minutes past 1 o'clock, till 3 P.M.

NOTICE.

ST. JOHN'S CATHEDRAL CHURCH.

  At a meeting held in the Vestry this day, the Trustees under the power in them vested by Clause 8 of Ordinance No. 2 of 1847, assessed the rent of each Sitting in the Cathedral at Twelve Dollars for the year commencing the 1st proximo.

  This increase, of Two Dollars per annum in the rent of each Sitting, has become necessary, on account of the Revenue being inadequate to meet the increased Expenditure which has arisen from the employment of an Organist, (whose Salary absorbs nearly half the revenue); the cost of pulling the punkahs; and the introduction of Gas for the preservation of the Organ,-charges which did not exist when the annual rent of each Sitting was, some years since, fixed at Ten Dollars.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prove a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan guage.

DICTIONARY,

THE REVD. W. LOBSCHEID.

THE above work, which has been chiefly em-

the study of Chinese literature, comprises many characters not met with in any of the Dictionaries hitherto published.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radial), and the addition of the Synonyins will prove a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

The work contains 584 Imperial Octavo pages, and is neatly bound in cloth.
