The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 ch?- 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 Jan- guage.

ings.

VIII. This Ordinance shall not come into Operation until Her Suspending Majesty's Confirmation thereof shall have been proclaimed in the Clause. Colony by the Governor.

Statement of Objects and Reasons.

The Provisions of this Ordinance are intended to repress certain offences and abuses which there is reason to believe are of frequent occurrence among the lower classes of the Chinese Population of this Colony, viz., the buying and selling of women and girls and their forcible or fraudulent abduction or detention for the purposes of prostitution. Also the decoying away under false pretences, or the abduction by force or intimidation, of persons for the purposes of Chinese Emigration. All the offences defined by this Ordinance, are in a great measure ejusdem generis, and are made punishable alike by imprisonment with or without hard labor for a period not exceeding two years; and power is given to the Supreme Court, whenever previous convictions are proved, to direct the offender, if a male, to be whipped under the Provisions of Ordinance No. 3 of 1868. It is proposed that this Ordinance should not come into force until Her Majesty's confirmation of it has been received, and therefore the usual Suspending Clause to that effect has been inserted.

JULIAN PAUNCEFOTE, Attorney General.

An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thercof, to abolish Minimum Punishments on Summary Convictions before Magistrates.

W1

>

1873.]

Title.

HEREAS by various Ordinances of the Colony a Miniinum Preamble.

as well as a Maximum Amount of Fine or Term of Ini- prisonment is prescribed by Way of Punishment for certain Offences triable summarily before the Magistrates; and whereas it is expedient to confer upon the Magistrates the Power of awarding, in their Discretion, a lesser, and in certain Cases, a nominal Punishment for such Offences: Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Counci! thereof, as follows:-

Punishments

Convictions

Whenever any

   Person shall be convicted upon a Summary Trial Minimum before a Magistrate, of an Offence against the Provisions of any Ordinance or Law now in Force in the Colony whereby a Minimum on Summary Amount of Fine or Term of Imprisonment is prescribed by Way abolished. of Punishment for such Offence, it shall be lawful for the Ma- gistrate, if he shall in his Discretion think fit, to award a lesser Amount of Fine or Terin of Imprisonment than that prescribed by Way of Minimum Punishment as aforesaid, or to award, in certain Cases, a merely nominal Punishment, anything in such Ordinance or Law contained to the contrary notwithstanding.

Statement of Objects and Reasons.

By this Ordinance, it is proposed to abolish generally all enact- ments providing Minimum Punishments for offences triable summarily before Magistrates. In cases of a first offence, or where there are mitigating circumstances, it is very desirable to leave the amount of punishment (below the maximun limit) to the entire discretion of the Magistrate. Examples of the Restric- tion which it is intended to abolish may be found in the "Victoria Registration Ordinance," the "Harbor and Coasts Ordinance," and others; there have been instances in which Magistrates have been reluctantly compelled either to dismiss the case without any punishment at all, or to inflict a graver punishment than the circumstances of the case seemed to justify. This Ordinance, therefore, will give greater latitude to the Magistrates, and is intended as a just measure of relief.

THE above work, which has been chiefly com-

piled for the purpose of aiding students in 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 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.

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

GOVERNMENT GARDENS.

1. Appearance of-As the principal part of my duties is occupied in superintending the iu. Public Gardens, I shall first report on their progress since assuming their superintendence, and Co. also on their present condition. In consequence of the absence of typhoons and strong winds during. the past summer, the plants in the Gardens have presented a healthier and more symmetrical ap- pearance than they did in the corresponding season of 1871, when, owing to the above causes, any of the plants were seriously injured. To give one instance out of many, I have only to remind you of the magnificent appearance which the bracts of the Poinsettias have presented during the last few months. Now, the same plants in 1871 were completely denuded of their leaves by the second typhoon of that year, at the time when the growth of the new shoots was being completed, and the formation of bracts and flowers were commencing.

2. Alterations and Improvements.-These have been few and insignificant, chiefly consisting in the substitution of stout wire stays instead of the unsightly bamboo ropes, which were previously need for the support of the larger frees and shrubs. Those beds also which surrounded the stems of trees and shrubs have been turfed over in those cases where it was thought advisable. This writer alteration has materially improved the general appearance of the Gardens.

3. Orchid House.--A structure 32 feet long, 21 feet wide, and 8 feet high, thinly thatched with grass, similar to enclosures of the same kind in use in the Calcutta Royal Botanic Gardens, has been constructed for growing Orchids and Ferns. A few Orchids have been obtained from Manila and Java, in addition to kinds which are indigenous to Hongkong. The successful growth which the Orchids have made during the past season, and the healthy condition they are now in, for every encouragement for their further introduction. It is greatly to be wished that East an, South American, and other well-known Orchids could be obtained to enrich the collection of his beautiful and interesting class of plants, but as yet, considerable difficulty has been experienced in attempting to procure them.

A. Ferns. Since assuming the duties of my department, a collection of Ferns has been made and systematized. Between seventy and eighty species of Ferns have been collected in Hongkong td from the adjacent mainland and islands. I have to thank Mr. T. P. PULLINGER, R.N., for the valuable assistance he has given me in forming this collection. A Fernery has also been prepared for reception of Ferns in the vicinity of the Orchid house.

34

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST FEBRUARY, 1873.

    5. Pits.--A small range of glass roofed Pits has also been constructed for the propagation and protection of delicate plants and seeds.

6. Grape Vines.-There has been received from England a selection of the best kinds of Vines, A Vine-border has been prepared which are intended to be planted in the following season. specially for this purpose. Grape growing will be an experiment, but at present I know of no in- superable difficulty which would prevent the successful growth of Vines for the production of Grapes in this Colony.

7. New Nursery.-Owing to the increasing number of pot plants in the Gardens, there was not sufficient space available for them. To supply this want, a new Nursery was formed to the South-east of the Gardens. Here also a chunamed basin, 18 fect in diameter and 3 feet deep, was prepared for the growth of the Victoria Regia, which, I am happy to say, has been introduced and bloomed successfully. If the basin surrounding the Fountain in the Public Gardens were deepened, these plants could also be grown there and furnish an additional attraction to visitors.

8. Ccolie and Store Houses.-During the past year, a Store House for the keeping of tools and other garden materials, and Quarters for labourers, have been erected near the Gardens, which, to a greater extent than formerly, secures the punctuality and regularity of the men.

9. Labels. A consignment of Maw's terra cotta Plant Labels has been received, which will be affixed to the plants as soon as the botanical names (and Chinese names if possible) can be painted upon them.

10. New Gardens.--The laying out and preparations for planting these gardens are progressing. Advancement has been made in the formation of walks, drains, &c. It is to be regretted that, owing to the want of skilled European assistance, a portion of these Gardens could not be reserved for strictly botanical purposes, and for the formation of a collection of plants peculiar to China; and thus make the Gardens of use to those scientific visitors who make Hongkong a place of call, as well as students who reside in the Colony.

   11. Peak Garden.-At this place, a collection of seeds, received from Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, of upwards of 400 varieties of plants belonging to higher latitudes have been sown, which, if successfully reared, will be planted along the upper parts of the hills.

TREE CULTIVATION.

   12. During the past season, a large number of trees were planted in avenues along the roads and streets, and in open places where shade, &c., was required, and where trees were likely to grow. The following are the statistics shewing the places, and numbers of trees planted :-

   The trees which were planted consisted chiefly of Banyans, India-rubber trees, and Bamboos. Each side of the ravine to the East of the Gardens was planted a considerable distance up the slopes of the hills. The trees there used were Bamboos, Banyan, India-rubber trees, Whampee (Cookia Punctata), Litchi (Nephelium Litchi), Rose Apple (Jambosa vulgaris), and Longan (Nephelium Langan), which were obtained from Nurseries at Canton. Notwithstanding the exposed nature of the situation, those trees have grown well and are now in a healthy state. A quantity of Chinese Fir Trees (Pinus Sinensis) have been raised from seeds for the purpose of planting on the higher and more exposed parts of the hills where other trees do not thrive. A quantity of the same kind of seeds have again been collected, together with a larger quantity of Cassuarina seeds, which have been matured on trees originally raised, I believe, from seeds received from the Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens. The Cassuarinas grow moderately well on this island and are not much damaged by strong winds, which is a most important quality requisite for trees to possess in this part of the world where typhoons are so prevalent and the exposure is so great. I understand the wood of this tree is very useful for economical purposes.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST FEBRUARY, 1873.

13. Bowrington Plantation.-This seems the most unpromising of all the plantations under my

charge. This appears due chiefly to the unfavourable nature of the soil, and to the unsuitable nature and quality of the trees which were planted, but as our stock increases, trees will be intro- duced more agreeable to the nature of the soil and situation.

INTERCHANGE OF PLANTS AND SEEDS.

14. Dr. HOOKER in his Report on the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, for the year 1871, in speaking of the Hongkong Government Gardens, attaches great importance to them as a means of "introducing a multitude of valuable vegetable products which are described by travellers in China, but which are totally unknown in Europe." Nearly all the plants in these Gardens are already introduced or known to botanists in Europe. But, in order to carry out the views of Dr. HOOKER, I respectfully invite the co-operation of botanists and residents in the East, to assist in carrying them into effect, by mutual interchange of plants and seeds. This has already been done to a small extent, and my thanks are due to the ladies and gentlemen who have kindly contributed. The exchange of plants is by no means so extensive, as it ought to be, if we take into account the great facilities which now exist for such interchanges.

15. The number of contributors to the Gardens were 27; from these, 1,192 plants and packets of seeds were received. The largest number of contributions were from the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens.

      16. 348 plants and packets of seeds have been sent to 212 recipients which include Kew Gardens, Queensland Acclimatisation Society, &c., &c.

now are,

SUGGESTIONS.

17. The addition of an European Garden Assistant, who would have a good knowledge of gar- dening, is required, as the duties attending the management of the Garders and the propagation and cultivation of trees in the Colony are so various and numerous, and the scenes of the works, in many cases, so widely separated, tha: it is impossible to give that attention to details which is desirable. The number of visitors to the Gardens is such as might be expected from the large number of residents in the Colony. With more intelligent assistance, the Gardens might be made more attractive, and thus become a source of greater pleasure and instruction to visitors than they In addition, the Government Gardens is a fitting place for the establishment of a Herbarian of dried plants; which would be useful to botanists when they might wish to refer to specimens of plants that could not conveniently be seen in a living state. A Gentleman, who is celebrated as an authority in Chinese botany, has kindly intimated that he "would be most happy to aid in the establishment of a Chinese Herbarium in Hongkong, giving every advice and assistance in his power." As well as the establishment of a Herbarium, a library of botanical, horticultural, and aboricultural works should be provided for those having the direction of Garden affairs; and also for the section of the Public who are interested in botany.-I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

CHARLES FORD, Superintendent of Government Gardens, and Tree Planting Department.

     SIR,-In accordance with your instructions, I have the honor to submit the following Report and Returns for the consideration of His Excellency the Governor.

     2. I am happy to be able to report that the Crimes committed in 1872 were not in themselves of so serious a nature as those that occurred in the previous year. The Police were also more successful in arresting the Offenders.

     3. The increase in the Miscellaneous Offences is so great, that I have added a Return which gives in detail the offences committed. It will be readily seen that the operation of new Ordinances in a great degree accounts for this increase.

4. Three Murders were committed. In one case, a Soldier of H. M.'s 10th Regiment shot a comrade on guard; an acquittal on the grounds of insanity ensued. In the second case, a Chinaman aving murdered a Chinawoman in Tai-ping-shan vas cleverly captured by two Native Constables as he was leaving the Colony; he was duly convicted and executed. The third case was the murder of a Fisherman which took place on the Sea near the Eastern extremity of the Island; the shot which caused death was fired from a piratical vessel, which has not again been seen within British Jurisdiction. 5. The Piracies and Robberies in Chinese waters reported are few in number, but I have reason to believe that this falling off is due to the junk people who suffer being aware that no assistance is given by the British Authorities to trace pirate boats beyond their jurisdiction, and they, therefore, abstain from making reports.

6. The Highway Robberies recorded (five at least of which were false reports) were, with one Exception, not of a serious nature. The total value of the property stolen in eighteen undetected cases was under $100.

in the house.

7. A decrease of 111 cases is recorded in the number of Burglaries and Larcenics from Lwelling houses.

In the majority of cases, there was little moral doubt but that the thieves had an accomplice I cannot too strongly urge upon residents the advantage of prohibiting their servants from lodging friends or clansmen at night.

8. Whilst on this point, I may again recommend that both servants and visitors should be Lede liable to punishment, when the latter have been allowed to sleep in a house contrary to the her's instructions; and that the registration ticket of each servant should contain his description and photograph, together with the name of his native village, &c. (Letter No. 199 of 1871.)

     SIR,-In accordance with your instructions, I have the honor to submit the following Report and Returns for the consideration of His Excellency the Governor.

     2. I am happy to be able to report that the Crimes committed in 1872 were not in themselves of so serious a nature as those that occurred in the previous year. The Police were also more successful in arresting the Offenders.

     3. The increase in the Miscellaneous Offences is so great, that I have added a Return which gives in detail the offences committed. It will be readily seen that the operation of new Ordinances in a great degree accounts for this increase.

4. Three Murders were committed. In one case, a Soldier of H. M.'s 10th Regiment shot a comrade on guard; an acquittal on the grounds of insanity ensued. In the second case, a Chinaman aving murdered a Chinawoman in Tai-ping-shan vas cleverly captured by two Native Constables as he was leaving the Colony; he was duly convicted and executed. The third case was the murder of a Fisherman which took place on the Sea near the Eastern extremity of the Island; the shot which caused death was fired from a piratical vessel, which has not again been seen within British Jurisdiction. 5. The Piracies and Robberies in Chinese waters reported are few in number, but I have reason to believe that this falling off is due to the junk people who suffer being aware that no assistance is given by the British Authorities to trace pirate boats beyond their jurisdiction, and they, therefore, abstain from making reports.

6. The Highway Robberies recorded (five at least of which were false reports) were, with one Exception, not of a serious nature. The total value of the property stolen in eighteen undetected cases was under $100.

in the house.

7. A decrease of 111 cases is recorded in the number of Burglaries and Larcenics from Lwelling houses.

In the majority of cases, there was little moral doubt but that the thieves had an accomplice I cannot too strongly urge upon residents the advantage of prohibiting their servants from lodging friends or clansmen at night.

8. Whilst on this point, I may again recommend that both servants and visitors should be Lede liable to punishment, when the latter have been allowed to sleep in a house contrary to the her's instructions; and that the registration ticket of each servant should contain his description and photograph, together with the name of his native village, &c. (Letter No. 199 of 1871.)

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 8TH FEBRUARY, 1873.

    9. The increase in the number of Gamblers arrested is the natural sequence of the discontinuance of licensed houses. The inveterate Gamblers have resorted to playing in the streets, and cases of arrest more frequently occur. The amount of public gambling in houses was very small; several clubs, however, are opened, in which private gambling is carried on, but these are not amenable to law.

    10. In January 1872, the issue of licenses for houses to be used as Public Gaming Houses, was stopped by the recovation of the Rules and Regulations passed under Ordinance No. 9 of 1867. For sometime, the Chinese were in doubt as to the powers and intentions of the Government with reference to unlicensed houses. It was not therefore until May, that any house was opened for gambling. Measures were taken for effecting a seizure, which proved successful, and fires amounting to $800 were inflicted on the persons arrested. Taking advantage of the powers conferred by the Registration Ordinance of 1866, I proceeded against the registered householder for the recovery of the fines not paid by those prisoners, who had resided in the house. I obtained a conviction, which was appealed against to the Supreme Court; this appeal was, however, dismissed with costs. The course of action adopted had a beneficial effect, in as much as the registered householders have since that time been especially careful as to the occupations of their tenants, and have in one or two cases stopped an embryo gaming house. In another case, fines to the amount of $1,200 were inflicted on the prisoners, who had been arrested in a stable belonging to an European.

11. Two prosecutions have also taken place against sellers of Lottery Tickets (Pak-kop Piu), and both resulted in convictions. There have, therefore, been 5 cases of House Gambling brought before the Courts, in which 48 prisoners have been convicted, 11 discharged, and fines amounting to $3,700 inflicted.

    12. The number of Mendicants arrested (558), mostly Lepers, is a matter worthy of serious con- sideration. I have suggested that "Maskong" or Round Island, off Stanley, should be converted into a Lazarette, but a forcible objection to this is that this Government would, in that case, have pro- bably to provide for the Lepers of the adjoining provinces of China. The want of any suitable place for their temporary detention is much felt.

    13. British Kowloong continues to supply the most numerous cases of Crime accompanied by violence. The guard-house lately erected at Hung-Ham will doubtless prove very useful; but no radical improvement can be hoped for, until the proposed Station at Yau-Ma-Ti is built, and accommodation provided for a sufficient Police Force. The assessment of the villages at Kowloong for Police rates should fully meet the necessary expenditure.

POLICE FORCE.

There

14. The conduct and ability of the Inspectors during the past year deserve great praise. have been no resignations or dismissals, neither have I had to report any serious case of misconduct.

15. The European Constables have been strengthened by the enlistment of 45 men, who had previously served in Scotland. The tone of that portion of the Force has been materially raised, and the breaches of discipline committed have been below the average generally recorded among so many men. 16. The Indians and Sikhs have decreased in number, owing to the expiration of the time of service. of the men enlisted in 1862 and 1867. Their general conduct has been about the same as in previous years. 17. No West Indians have been enlisted since September, 1870, and of those then in the Force only five remain.

18. The Chinese Force has been increased in proportion to the falling off in the number of the Indians. Several cases have been brought before the Courts in which the prisoners could only have been arrested by men of the same nationality.

19. Experience showing that the Indians are most useful when they have limited beats to control, and when their duties are minutely defined, I have adopted the plan of placing them on fixed posts in different parts of the town. (Table E.) By this arrangement the Public are enabled to know where, at any time by day or night, a Constable may be found; and by allotting to the Indians and Chinese, two tours of duty each four hours in length, instead of one of six hours as heretofore, I have been enabled to afford the above advantage without detriment to the general duties.

20. The beats between and about these fixed points are filled by Europeans and Chinese.

21. The Horses belonging to the Force, 12 in number, are in good condition. It will, however, probably be expedient to cast one or two of them during the present year, as they are becoming very aged. North-China Ponies appear to answer better for Police purposes than Horses.

22. The returns enclosed are:-

A.-A Table of all Offences committed during 1872.

B.-A Table of Miscellaneous Offences committed during 1872.

C.-A comparative Table of Offences committed in 1870, 1871, and 1872.

D.-A Table of the Punishments inflicted on members of the Force.

E-A List of Places where Indian Constables are posted.

POLICE SCHOOL,

HONGKONG, 3rd February, 1873.

   Sin, I have to submit this my fourth Annual Report on the Police School, viz., that for the year ending 31st December, 1872.

Change in character of the School

2. During the past year the School has assumed altogether another character. Formerly the attendance was voluntary, but now it is compulsory on all those doing duty in the Attendance now compul- central part of the city, that is, on those who are within a reasonable walking distance to the Central Soy on the part of certain Barracks, where the School is held.

men of the Force.

The only exception o this rule is to men who have passed a written examination, and obtained two- Subjects of examination thirds of the maximum number of marks, in the following subjects:---

1 Handwriting.

2 Dictation.

3 Arithmetic.

4 Composition, sufficient for keeping Occurrence

Book.

5 Duties of a Constable.

6 Knowledge of Town and Sections,

7 Knowledge of Police Regulations.

8 Knowledge of Drill.

   3. Every man in the Force must now learn one language other than his own. The Europeans have to study Chinese, and the Indians and Chinese must learn English. To carry this out every facility in the way of Teachers, Books, &c., is afforded them, and many have made considerable progress.

to exempt men from School attendance.

Police to learn one lan- age of mens afforded

own, and

to enable them to do so.

Inducement offered to the

4. Indian and Chinese Constables are encouraged to make progress by the promise, that, if they obtain Certificates for a competent knowledge of English they will be recommended for "good conduct" allowances, men to study. I trust that this inducement holds good with regard to such Europeans as make corresponding progress in

Chinese.

   5. The progress during the year is satisfactory, but it is innch retarded by the frequent transfers from Progress of the scholars. the Central Barracks to the numerous out-stations. This is lessened as much as possible by allowing those transferred to take with them their School Material, so that, if they are inclined to study, they have the means at hand to enable them to do so. Those who are more constantly near enough to attend School, necessarily, make the greatest progress.

on board Police Hulk.

   6. It is the intention of His Excellency the Governor to establish a School for the benefit of the large School to be established number of men stationed on board the Police Hulk, thus affording them means for instruction, and employ- ment of time, which, as they are situated, must occasionally hang wearily on their hands. to be able to report favourably on the result of this scheme.

Next year I hope

   7. Of the conduct of the men while in School, I can only speak in the highest praise. As a whole they satisfactory conduct of are desirous of instruction. Of course, in a large body of men, there are some who look upon the School as the men while in School. a nuisance, because it curtails their spare time; such only come because they are obliged, but even these are most orderly and attentive.

8. I have found the teachers diligent and attentive to their work.

9. Of School Material we are, at present, very deficient, for the following reason.

In making my requisition for School Stores for the past year, I applied for only sufficient to meet ordinary wants. In consequence of the changes made as to attendance, I had to supply three times the usual amount; but for the assistance rendered by the Head Master of the Central School, in lending stores, we should have been badly off indeed. Stores are expected from England shortly, which will," I hope, supply most of our wants.

Teachers.

Present deficiency of School material explained.

for School purposes

   10. In consequence of there being no suitable place within the Central Barracks, the use of some of the Proper accommodation rooms within the Police Magistracy was granted for the evening classes. No better arrangement, as a ceded. temporary measure, could then have been devised, but it is not suitable now. What is really wanted is one room, large enough to accommodate all, where the scholars will be constantly under the supervision of the European Masters; and as it is absolutely necessary that the School should either be within, or close to, the Central Barracks, in case the services of the men should be required on any emergency, I would suggest that, in the event of any alterations in, or additions to, the Central Barracks, a suitable room be provided for School purposes.

   11. In the following Tables of Attendance, you will observe a great increase in the numbers, as com- Increase in attendance. pared with last year's Report. Compulsory attendance will, in a great measure, account for this. In the beginning of the year, the numbers on the On the 31st December, they were :—

VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF HONGKONG.

No. 1 of 1873.

MONDAY, 6TH JANUARY, 1873.

PRESENT:

His Excellency Governor SIR ARTHUR EDWARD KENNEDY, K.C.M.G., C.B.

The Honorable the Chief Justice (JOHN SMALE).

The Honorable the Acting Colonial Secretary (CECIL CLEMENTI SMITH). The Honorable the Attorney General (JULIAN PAUNCEFOTE).

The Honorable the Acting Treasurer (CHARLes May).

The Honorable IIENRY JOHN BALL.

The Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE.

The Honorable HENRY Lowcock.

The Honorable WILLIAM HASTINGS ALEXANDER.

The Honorable JAMES WHITTALL.

The Council meets this day at 2.30 P.M., pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the Council held on the 30th December, are read and confirmed.

The Honorable JAMES WHITTALL, pursuant to notice, proposes for debate-"That a necessity exists for the erection of two or more Light-houses at the Eastern and Western Entrances of Victoria Harbor."

Having enlarged on the manifest advantages to Foreign and Native Shipping which would result from the approaches to the Port being lighted, the Honorable Member expresses an opinion that the total cost would not exceed $25,000, which ought to be defrayed out of the Special Fund, while the maintenance of the Lights, &c., estimated at $6,000 per annum, should be provided for by Light Dues levied at the rate of 50 cents per 100 Tons.

The Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE seconds the motion.

The Honorable the Attorney General states that any legal difficulty that might have existed to the proposed scheme was met by "The Merchant Shipping Act Amendment Act, 1855," which gave power to levy dues for the erection and maintenance of Light-houses on or near the coasts of any British Possession. His Excellency the Governor, having referred to the Reports on the subject which had been called for by Sir RICHARD MACDONNELL in 1867, says that as the Un-official Members, who represent the Mercantile Community, and to whom the Government looked to initiate such questions. as that before the Council, are prepared to support a measure to provide for the erection and maintenance of Light-houses, he is most anxious to take the necessary steps to carry out the Honorable Member's proposal. His Instructions, however, from the Secretary of State preclude without doubt the probability of obtaining the sanction of Her Majesty's Government to devote any portion of the Special Fund to the purpose indicated. The attendant expenses would be properly met by a Loan, and the collection of Light Dues to pay off the Loan and maintain the Lights.

Debate ensues.

Question put, and carried unanimously.

The Honorable the Chief Justice presents the Report of the Special Committee on the Sheriff's Bill,

suggesting amendments therein; and the same having been received,--

The Council goes into Committee upon the Clauses of the Bill.

The proposed amendments are agreed to; and some alterations and additions having been made, the Bill, as amended, is adopted by the Council.

At the suggestion of the Honorable the Attorney General, it is ordered that the passing

of the Bill be deferred till the next Meeting of the Council.

Read a first time, a Bill for the better Protection of Chinese Women and Female Children, and for the

Tepression of certain Abuses in relation to Chinese Emigration.

The Honorable the Attorney General states the grounds and reasons upon which the Bill is founded.

After which,—it is ordered that the Bill to make better Provision for the Protection of Women and

Girls, which was read a first time on the 10th December, be withdrawn.

Read a first time, a Bill to abolish Minimum Punishments on Summary Convictions before Magistrates.

The Honorable the Attorney General explains its Provisions.

His Excellency moves that there be placed on the Supplementary Estimates for 1873, the sum of $960 as an additional Salary to the Superintendent of the Civil Hospital,-an increase which has been sanctioned by the Secretary of State, in lieu of the Fees hitherto allowed to that Officer.

Question put, and carried.

HONGKONG, 31st January, 1873.

Sir, In accordance with the Memorandum on C. S. O. No. 3,151, I caused the Census of this Colony to be taken on the night of the 1st December last; the Returns would have been sent in sooner, had they not been delayed by the pressure of work incidental to the commencement of the year.

   The Returns call for no particular report. There is an apparent decrease in the number of Europeans and Americans resident in the Colony, but I am of opinion, that the figures given under this head in the Returns for 1870-1871 are not correct, and my reasons for supposing so are these:

www.

If we look at Table No. 13, it will be seen that since the year 1864 there has been each year a gradual increase, on the average of about 82 persons on the previous year. I can, therefore, scarcely think that in April 1871, when the last Census was taken, there could have been so large an increase as 447. There is no doubt that at least 100 of this number ought to appear under the heading of Temporary Residents, the latter only being returned as 57 in 1871, whereas in previous years they averaged more

than 160.

If we take 82 as the average increase per annum in the number of European residents, the correct Return would be nearer 2,371 than 2,736; consequently this year would show an increase of 149, instead of a decrease of 216.

Since the taking of the last Census, the Chinese Population has increased.

The following Annual Report on the State of the Government Schools in Hongkong for the Year 1872, is published for general information.

By Command,

No. 12.

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG, 3rd February, 1873. SIR.I have the honour to forward to you the Annual Report on the Government Schools in this Colony and the Blue Book Returns for the year 1872.

2. The Tables which are appended give, in a succinct form, nearly all the information which it is Pecessary to supply on the state of the schools. Last year's Report contained a r?sum? of their history Ar the ten preceding years, and nothing has happened since then to necessitate its reconsideration.

3. Five new schools were added in the course of the year, and one was discontinued. This brings e number of school now under Government supervision up to thirty. Four of the five obtained usual grant-in-aid, and the fourth, which promises to be a successful one, was added to the Govern- ment Schools properly so called.

1. As regards the number of scholars, the rise for the year was considerable, the increase over the previous year being 188. A more encouraging feature connected with the schools is the increased gularity in the attendance. This, however, must not be judged of solely by the figures which are given, for the school rolls are not, in all cases, kept so carefully as they should be. This does not arise much from a desire to mis-represent, as from a want of appreciation, on the part of some of the ters, of habits of strict accuracy. Nevertheless, making all due allowance for this fauit, there can no doubt that the regularity with which the children attend the schools is steadily increasing.

3. It is also evident that the people take more real interest in the schools than formerly. They allow themselves to be too much the prey of needy school-masters, to the injury of the school of the peace of the village; but it is very seldom that the obstinacy, which used to be carried so ras to make them decline all education if not given on their own terms, is now long persisted in. The practice which has been strictly adhered to for some years of appointing no master until his com- *ience has been tested by examination has tended almost entirely to this result. The annual exami- Lation of each school, too, supplies a criterion of the master's diligence which can be used against any attempt to oust him, simply because the people would prefer a change.

6. Two of the schools gave rise to much annoyance. At Little Hongkong and Yau-m? Ti not uth passed without some complaint, either by the villagers against the master, or by the master st the villagers. In the case of these schools, one of two things will have to be done. Either grant-in-aid must be withdrawn until harmony is restored, or the schools must be taken entirely ay from local control, and be maintained solely at Government expense. The latter is the se which should be taken with them. In any other way, the children will be neglected, and their being is of too great importance to be subordinated to the caprices of their parcits.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1873.

7. The giving of grants-in-aid to certain schools, which at first gave promise of much good, is not proving so beneficial a measure as was anticipated. Although it would be very difficult to give proper proof for the assertion, there can be no doubt that, in many cases, the grant is the master's sole means of support. And this is not all; for out of this pittance he has to pay rent and other exactions. In one case where these were refused, the villagers approached the master with much cunning. They asked him for a loan of money, which it would require much charity to believe they ever intended to

repay.

8. As has been often repeated in these Reports, no one who has not had actual experience among the schools could believe what difficulties have to be encountered in connection with them. These difficulties are not to be removed by any ordinary means, for they originate almost entirely from igno- A firm determination to bear with rance, from prejudice, and not infrequently from something worse.

  the people, in the faith that good must ultimately accrue from an attempt to protect the children from the misfortune of the parents is almost the only motive for perseverance that can be supposed to exist.

9. These Annual Reports have also contained repeated references to the kind of education imparted in these village schools. It is needless to repeat that, at best, it comes far short of anything which would be dignified with the name of education in the West. Still, it has been tha or nothing since the establishment of the schools; and, although a hope has been cherished that the present state of things would soon give place to a better, no opportunity for the realization of the hope has occurred until now.

    10. How far the experiment will be successful, it is impossible to say; but if the Government is prepared to sanction it, it will now be made. The school-master at Aberdeen has allowed his school so to dwindle away both in numbers and in efficiency, that it will be necessary to make an application for his removal. That granted, his place will be filled by the lad who proved himself the best scholar in the Central School at the recent examinations.

    11. The school will then be conducted on the plan of the Central School. One half the day will be devoted to English, and the other half to Chinese. English books will be read as a means of inpart- ing knowledge in subjects which there is no hope of ever having taught in the Chinese Language by the present class of masters. Chinese books will also be read, because no attempt will be made to denationalize the boys.

12. If this plan succeeds, the children of Aberdeen will, before long, know something of, at least, Arithmetic and Geography, in addition to the very laudable aphorisms about "Benevolence and Righte- ousness," which are at present so drearily dinned into their ears. Committed to memory with a facility which is marvellous, and retained there with an equally surprising tenacity, these sayings of the sages may be ever ready on the tongue; but for all purposes of information, and of education in its strictest sense, they are, for such young children as we have at our village schools, practically useless. The children, certainly, learn to read and write; but, with the exception of a few boys in the best of the schools, this is all the good that is ever gained, if we except the opportunities for mischief which are avoided by confinement in school.

13. The difficulties which underlic this scheme are these. The teacher's knowledge of his own language will be ignored by many, and undervalued by all. His knowledge of English will, with some, be it subject for contempt. His youth will expose him to no little interference on the part of the old people in the village, and, greatest difficulty of all, it may be a serious drawback, as regards character and conduct, to the prosperity of the school. As matters now stand, the Inspector of Schools cannot exercise that constant supervision which he could do before the establishment of the Central School. Unless, therefore, the young teacher has force of character enough to keep himself straight, the con- sequences to this experiment may be very disastrous.

    14. It is not now for the first time that this plan for the gradual supersession of the present masters has been thought of. Hitherto, lads who would have taken the posts were not such as could have been trusted in them, and those who could have taken them were always able to command higher. remuneration for their services elsewhere, than could have been given them as teachers. It so happens that, at present, everything bids fair for a first attempt, and, if it should ultimately fail, we might do worse than revert to Confucius for another decade. If, on the other hand, it succeeds, it will be the commencement of a new educational era in the Colony.

15. The Central School has made another rapid advance in numbers. It has far outgrown the limits of the present building, and not of that only, but of the teaching power of the present staff of masters. A hope was expressed in last Report that another year would see a more commodious and suitable building in course of construction. If increased accommodation and an additional English master were necessary then, still more so are they necessary now. Last year showed very plainly the effects which result from even the temporary absence of one of the masters. Certain subjects had to remain in abeyance, and the masters on duty were overworked. If anything should happen which would necessitate, the prolonged absence of one of the English masters, the only course that could be adopted would be a reduction of the numbers. This is too serious a step to contemplate. There is no help, therefore, but to bring the subject once more to the notice of the Government, and beg for it the consideration which it deserves.

A

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1873. 63

16. If a new building and additional masters were obtained, the Central School might be made supply all the educational wants of the Colony. That the Chinese alone are not the only persons so need such a school is yearly becoming more and more evident. Last year, there were no fewer

SS boys of other nationalities at the school, and that number might be considerably increased. As long as these boys formed only a mere fraction in each of the classes, their presence interfered but fle with the ordinary routine of the school; but now that their importance is increasing with their ambers, and our duty to them is as imperative as that to the Chinese, another arrangement of lasses is absolutely necessary to secure to them the education which they require. As, however, this a subject which was relegated to a committee appointed for the purpose on behalf of the com- unity, it would be trenching on their duties to discuss this subject further. Perhaps this reference

it will accelerate their final decision.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

FREDERICK STEWART, Inspector of Government Schools.

ance Company," Hand Engines of Chinese Associations, and the Steam and Hand Engines of Government Brigade were taken to the vicinity of the Sailors' Home. The Steam Engine of "Hongkong Insurance Company" worked from the sea with one branch of delivery Hose, about 500 feet. No. 1 Steam Engine of Government Brigade also worked from the sea with four branches of delivery Hose, each extending about 100 feet to Queen's Road, and No. 2 Steam Engine worked from the sea with two branches of delivery Hose, each 216 feet in length: all worked satisfactorily.

   In practising the Firemen to replace a supposed bursting of 300 feet of Hose, the Hose on, the Reel became entangled from not recollecting that it had been put on the Reel for two branches to be simultaneously run out; this caused delay, but it was a matter of practice only and knowledge was gained.

   At these last two Inspections, the comparative merits of leather and canvas Hose was fairly tested, and I consider that the canvas is at least equal to the leather.

THE above work, which has been chiefly com- Filad for the purpose of aiding students in 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 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.

(2.) No change shall be made in the name of a ship without the previous permis- sion of the Board of Trade signified in writing under their seal, or under the hand of one of their secretaries or assistant secretaries. Upon such permission being granted, the ship's name shall forthwith be altered in the register book, in the ship's certificate of registry, and on her bows and

stern:

(3.) If in any case it is shown to the satisfaction of the Board of Trade that the name of any ship has been changed without such permission as aforesaid, they shall direct that her naine be altered into that which she bore before such change, and the name shall be altered in the register book, in the ship's certificate of registry, and on her bows and stern accordingly: (4.) Where a ship having once been registered has ceased to be so registered, no person, unless ignorant of such previous registry, (proof whereof shall lie on him,) shall apply to register, and no registrar shall knowingly register, such ship, except by the name by which she was previously registered, unless with the permission of the Board of Trade granted as aforesaid.

Such surveyor or other person shall survey the ship, and make his report in writing to the court, including an answer to every question put to him by the court. The court shall cause such report to be communicated to the parties, and unless it is proved to the satisfaction of the court that the opinions expressed in such report are erroneous, the court shall determine the questions before them in accordance with those opinions.

      For the purposes of such survey, a surveyor shall have all the powers of an in- sector appointed by the Board of Trade, under the Merchant Shipping Act, 1854.

      The costs (if any) of the survey shall be determined by the Board of Trade accord- jug to a scale of fees to be fixed by them, and shall be paid in the first instance out of the Mercantile Marine Fund.

      If it is proved to the satisfaction of the court that the ship is in a fit condition to proceed to sea, or, as the case may be, that the accommodation is sufficient, the costs of the survey shall be paid by the person or persons upon whose demand, or in consequence of whose allegation, the survey was made, and may be deducted by the master or owner out of the wages due or to become due to such person or persons, and shall be paid over to the Board of Trade.

If it is proved that the ship is not in a fit condition to proceed to sea, or, as the case may be, that the accommodation is insufficient, the costs of the survey shall be paid to the Board of Trade by the master or owner.

Any failure to give such information, except under circumstances which render it possible or unnecessary to do so (proof of which shall lie on the master failing to give it), shall involve the same consequences as failure to render assistance to the other vessel, or to the master, crew, or passengers thereof.

     In this section the term "vessel" includes any vessel used in navigation, how- ever propelled.

10.

A CHINESE AND ENGLISH DICTIONARY,

*

BY

THE REVD. W. LOBSCHEID.

THE above work, which has been chiefly com-

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 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.

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

PRICE $8 per Copy.

THE above work, which has been chiefly com-

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 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.

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

VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF HONGKONG.

No. 2 OF 1873.

TUESDAY, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1873.

PRESENT:

His Excellency Governor SIR ARTHUR EDWARD KENNEDY, K.C.M.G., C.B

The Honorable the Chief Justice (JOHN SMALE).

The Honorable the Acting Colonial Secretary (CECIL CLEMENTI SMITH). The Honorable the Attorney General (JULIAN PAUNCEFOTE).

The Honorable the Acting Treasurer (CHARLES May).

The Honorable HENRY JOHN BALL.

The Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE.

The Honorable RICHARD ROWETT.

The Honorable JAMES WHITTALL.

ABSENT:

The Honorable WILLIAM HASTINGS ALEXANDER, absent on leave.

The Council meets this day at 2.30 P.M., by Special Suminons.

The Minutes of the Council held on the 6th January, are read and confirmed.

His Excellency makes the following Statement:-

Since the last Meeting of the Council I have received a very important Despatch from the Earl of KIMBERLEY, in relation to the abuses which constantly arise out of the system of Chinese Emigration carried on in the neighbouring Colony of Macao, and which have been so long the subject of complaint and remonstrance on the part of the British Government. The Despatch is in these terms:-

“Downing STREET, 20th November, 1872.”

(

"SIR,-It has at different times been represented to me that foreign vessels engaged in the shipment of Coolies from Macao are equipped in the Port of Hongkong, or furnished with supplies or stores from that Colony, and my attention has recently been directed to the following paragraph extracted from a Hongkong Newspaper: The Spanish steamer Bueno Ventura, a sister to, and belonging to the same owner as the Steamship Yrurac Bat, which vessel fitted up up for here and left a few days back for Macao, for a cargo of Coolies, has arrived here to fit the same purpose.'

"2.You are probably aware that during the late Session of Parliament, an Act (three copies of which I enclose) was passed for the purpose of repressing the abuses connected with the movement of natives from their Islands in the Pacific Ocean to labour on Plantations.

  "3.-Although great cruelties have been perpetrated in connexion with this traffic in South Sea Islanders, they can hardly have been greater than those which have led to the dis- graceful and horrible occurrences from time to time reported as having taken place on board ships conveying Chinese Coolies from Macao.

?

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST MARCH, 1873.

 "4.-Her Majesty's Government, which has been under the necessity of making repeated remonstrances to the Portuguese Government on the subject of the Macao Coolie Trade, can- not permit that there should be even the shadow of a justification for any such imputation as that British subjects in Hongkong partake in and profit by a traffic which the Queen's Government deplores and protests against. And I see no reason why British subjects resident in Hongkong should not, as well as those in Australasia, be subjected to the punishment prescribed in Section 9 of the * Kidnapping Act, 1872,' for the offences specified in that Section, if committed within the territorial jurisdiction of the Colony.

 "5.--I request you to give your particular attention to the 'Kidnapping Act, 1872,' and to consider whether some of its provisions might not with the necessary alterations be made applicable to Hongkong. If you are of opinion that they might be, I request you to transmit

                                 purpose. to me, as soon as possible, the Draft of an Ordinance for that

"As Chief-Justice SMALE has given much attention to this question, I request you to give him a copy of this Despatch and of the Act enclosed in it, and to intimate to him that I shall be glad to receive from him, through you, any observations or suggestions which he may wish to offer, either in conjunction or after consultation with the Attorney-General and yourself, or separately.

"You will also lay this Despatch before the Legislative Council.--I have, &c.,"

"Governor

"Sir A. E. KENNEDY, K.C.M.G., C.B."

(Signed,)

"KIMBERLEY."

In compliance with the Earl of KIMBERLEY'S instructions, I have conferred with the Chief- Justice and with the Attorney General, and have carefully considered, in conjunction with these officers, the kind of legislation which is best calculated to carry out effectively the wishes of Her Majesty's Government. I am also at the present time in communication with the Secretary of State on the subject, and I hope to be able very shortly to submit to the Council the Draft of an Ordinance, intended to prohibit and prevent, to the fullest extent that the powers of this Legislature will allow, all residents of this Colony, of whatever nationality they may be, from taking any part in what's commonly known as the 'Macao Coolie Trade,' and from participating, directly or indirectly, in its profits, either by chartering or equipping and furnishing vessels for the purpose of Macao Emigration, or in any other manner. I have every reason to believe that, in introducing such a measure, I shall have the hearty support and co-operation of every Member of the Council, as well as the approval of the Community of the Colony. I do not now invite any expression of opinion on what is proposed, but when the Draft Ordinance is laid on the Table, the subject can be fully discussed.

The Sheriff's Bill, with the amendments adopted by the Council at its last Meeting, is laid on the Table, and His Excellency puts the Question:-That this Bill, as amended, do pass, and that the Title be-An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Llongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to make better Provision for the Appointment and Remuneration of the Sheriff and Deputy Sheriffs of the Colony, and to afford them Relief and Protection in the Execution of their Duties.

Question put and carried,-the Ordinance being numbered "No. 1 of 1873."

The Minimum Punishments Bill is read a second time, committed, and passed, bearing the Title of—An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to abolish Minimum Punishments on Summary Convictions before Magistrates,--being "No. 2 of

1873."

His Excellency adjourns the Council at 5 minutes before 3 o'clock.

Read and confirmed, this 24th Day of February, 1873.

THE above work, which has been chiefly com- piled for the purpose of aiding students in the study of Chinese literature, comprises maay characters not met with in any of the Di?tionaries 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 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 lau- guage.

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

THE above work, which has been chiefly com- piled for the purpose of aiding students in the study of Chinese literature, comprises many characters not met with in any of the Dictionaries hitherto published.

The selection of between 8,009 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- jguage.

SHIPPING.

2. I regret having to report that so many inaccuracies appear in the Returns for 1871, published in the Hongkong Government Gazette of the 20th April, 1872, that it is useless to attempt to institute a comparison between them and the Returns accompanying this Report. I have, therefore, preferred to

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH MARCH, 1873.

take the years 1870 and 1872 to show the commercial progress of the Colony so far as the statistical information obtained by this Department will convey it. The Officer to whose laches these inaccuracies are mainly attributable has been allowed to resign the position he held in the Department.

   3. The grand total of all the arrivals in the Colony, exclusive of ships of war, during the year 1872, amounts to 31,394 vessels, measuring 3,777,676 tons, manned by 483,816 seamen; of this total about 49 per cent represents the Junk trade, whilst British vessels absorb 32 per cent, and vessels of other nationalities claim 19 per cent.

4. The arrivals entered in Table I exhibit the large increase in the trade of the Colony, of 3,503 vessels, 941,240 tons, and 69,144 men, of which, the Junk trade shows an increase to the extent of 2,849 vessels, measuring 363,104 tons, leaving the increase of trade in foreign vessels at 654 vessels and 578,136 tons; of the latter increase, 65 per cent is in British tonnage, and 35 per cent is in tonnage

of other nationalities.

   5. Of the increase in the trade alluded to in the preceding paragraph I find that that in the trade between this Port and the Ports of China and Formosa is the largest, it being 707,271 tons in excess of the arrivals in 1876, -Chinese Junks laying claim to 42 per cent of this, British vessels to 36.6 per cent, and foreign vessels to 21.4 per cent.

   6. There is also a total increase of 189,195 tons on the trade of Hongkong with the following, Countries:-Australia and New Zealand at the rate of 12.1 per cent, Great Britain 48.7 per cent, India and Singapore 24 per cent, Siam 8.3 per cent, and the United States of America 6.9 per cent; whilst there is a decrease of 49,179 tons in trade with Japan. The places not mentioned remain nearly

the same.

   7. In separating the steam tonnage from the tonnage of sailing vessels, I have not considered the native craft, as Chinese merchants had not, up to the end of 1872, adopted the use of their native flag on such steamers as they owned. The amount of tonnage of sailing and steam vessels under other flags is 1,905,866 tons, of which 1,216,223 tons are propelled with the aid of steam;

                                                 76 per cent of this latter tonnage is under the British Flag; 10 per cent is under the French Flag; 7.5 per cent is under the Flag of the United States; and 4.5 per cent is under the German Flag. The remainder of the percentage consists of Spanish and other vessels.

   S. I trust steps will shortly be taken to bring the large steam irade of the Colony under periodical official inspection.

   9. It is to be observed that in the foregoing statement I have referred only to vessels engaged in trade outside the Colony entering the Port. If, to the 31,394 vessels arrived in 1872 be added the departures, which, in the same year were 30,875 vessels; and if again to this sun we add the arrivals and departures of those engaged in the local trade alone, it will be seen that the movements of about 75,000 vessels, measuring nearly 8,000,000 tons have been recorded by this Department during the year under review. This total excludes the movements of the 2,000 fishing vessels licensed under Ordinance No. 6 of 1866, which, under certain conditions, are allowed undisturbed ingress and egrcss.

10. Comparisons have been made between the cost of administering the Government Departments now and their cost in former days, the year 1863 being taken as the model year.

11. I find, so far as this Department is concerned, on reference to the records, that in 1863, 1,822 vessels, measuring 894,924 tons, manned by 29,561 seamen, arrived in this port. These were British and foreign ships only, the movements of Junks not being noticed in those days, with a result to which the Police piracy reports will testify.

12. The records for 1872 show that 1,232 more British and foreign vessels, measuring 1,010,942 tons, manned by 81,465 scamen, arrived in that year than came here in 1863. This alone is sufficient to account for some of the increased expenses of this Department, but when to this increase of work is added the boarding and recording the movements of 28,340 native Craft, all wonder at the greater expenditure must cease.

13. Ordinance No. 4 of 1867 (Gunpowder Storage) has also added to the duties and cost of the Department.

14. In 1863 the Departmental revenue about balanced the expenditure. In 1872 the revenue exceeded the expenditure by $20,226.

  15. I am much gratified to find that steps are being taken for the erection of light-houses to mark the approaches to Hongkong, for, although the port and its vicinity are nearly entirely free from hidden dangers, it is important that the Masters of the numerous ships frequenting these waters should be enabled, under almost any circumstances of weather, so to distinguish the neighbouring groups islands as to ensure them a certain means of reaching the Port of Hongkong, no matter whether bound to it, or seeking its harbour as a place of refuge.

16. I regret having to call attention to the number of casualties that have happened in 1872 to ls frequenting Hongkong. In nearly all the cases that have come under my observation I find at the use of the lead has not received that attention by which safe navigation may almost ways be ensured, and to this oversight, much more than to the existence of unknown rocks, do I

ribute the casualties which every one must deplore.

As a

    17. A desire to outdo rival ships in the rapidity of their movements too frequently leads an over ergetic shipmaster to sacrifice safety and security to his anxiety to make a quick passage. neral rule the Coast is well surveyed, but it is almost impossible in the most careful examination of Coast to discover and lay down the position of every rock and stone lying near the shore. Much ruust be left to the discretion of the officer in charge of the navigation of the ship as to how near the tast, on dark nights or in hazy weather, it is prudent to approach. A timely cast of the lead will ally caution him as to his nearness to it. This neglected, all theories as to position are based on merc njecture.

LA

JUNK TRADE.

18. It is satisfactory to find that, in the great increase of the traffic of the Colony, the Junks are maintaining their ground, and still retain a goodly proportion of the carrying trade. This arises from two reasons; one is the greater cheapness of this means of conveyance; the other is that Junks only are permitted to visit non-Consular Ports. But for this prohibition steam would shortly drive nearly the

hole native craft out of all competition, as it must already have considerably reduced it.

      19. If the Junk trade is not what it was ten years ago, it must not be attributed to the so called faulty Legislation of the Government, but rather to the fact that Chinese traders are as much alive to the value of time in the transport of their goods as are any other merchants. As a proof of this we see Chinese themselves becoming owners, or part owners of steam vessels, to the exclusion of their own native slow-going craft.

20. The Junk arrivals for the year 1872 exceed by 61,644 tons from Macao. by 301,460 tons from Ports in China and Formosa, and by 91,888 tons from the villages of the Colony (denominated in the returns Local trade), the arrivals for 1870; and the total number of Chinese passengers brought in this class of vessels from the same places is 22,051 more than arrived in the same year.

     21. I attach a Diagram showing the monthly range of the number of documents issued by this Department in connection with the Junk trade, which will readily show its improved condition. The smallest number (2,200) issued was in February, 1867; the greatest number (5,400) was issued in May, 1872.

22. In considering the steady increase shown by these figures, it must be remembered that every re- xation has, from time to time, been made that the objects for which Ordinance No. 6 of 1866 was framed, would admit of. The prices of Licenses, Passes, &c., have been gradually reduced; and a large number of well known Junk owners have been permitted to avail themselves of the Special Permits which, requiring them to report but once a month, materially decrease the irksomeness attending the frequent reporting at this Office which necessarily obtained in the early stage of the introduction of the new law, and of which Native traders so constantly complained. These concessions have tended decrease the issue of papers considerably, nevertheless a far more than corresponding increase of trade has more than doubled it.

EMIGRATION.

It relaxes

23. The introduction of Ordinance No. 8 of 1871 has been attended with great success. the stringent nature of the Chinese Passengers' Act, 1855, allowing a greater number of passengers to embarked in vessels proceeding on voyages proclaimed as being of less than 30 days' duration than Les hitherto been permitted from Hongkong and the Consular Ports of China.

24. Before this Ordinance was passed, the restrictions were so great, and the number of passengers wed to be carried so small, that ships leaving here for the Straits Settlements took but their twenty Chinese passengers in each ship. Under the new order of things 8,480 men, 1,042 women, and 268 ale and female children under 12 years of age were despatched to Singapore in 1872. ·

25. There is no material change in the Emigration to other Countries.

     26. The records exhibit a large number of Chinese as having returned to their native Country. There were 886 from the Australasian Colonies; 719 from Siam; 3,236 from Manila; 4,259 from the United States of America; 4,065 from Saigon, and 10,482 from the Straits Settlements.

     27. In marked contrast with this, I find that the two vessels which arrived here from Havana during the year brought but 58 Chinese from that Colony; whilst in 26 vessels measuring 20,566

only 68 Chinese were brought from Callao.

REGISTRY OF SHIPPING.

  28. Twenty-six vessels, measuring 7,856 tons, of which 17 are propelled by steain, aggregating 1.520 Horse Power, have been registered at this Office during the year.

  29. Twenty-four vessels, measuring 7,644 tons, of which 13 are steamers with a total of 1,656 Horse Power, have had their Registers cancelled in this Registry for the reasons stated against their

           proper Return. respective names in the

MARINE MAGISTRATE'S COURT.

  30. The hard labour prescribed for prisoners confined in Victoria Gaol is having a salutory effect on the number of cases brought to this Court. It is found that seamen do not so persistently refuse duty as heretofore, a few days' punishment being generally found sufficient to bring them to reason.

  31. Complaints have been made during the year of the absence of any rieans to enforce order and diligence on Foreign ships. I need scarcely point ont that the Consuls at this port have the matter completely in their own hands, and have only to exercise their authority on board to obviate all the inconveniences complained of.

EXAMINATIONS FOR THE POSTS OF MASTERS AND MATES IN THE MERCANTILE

MARINE. (ORDINANCE No. 17.OF 1830.)

  32. Of the 37 applicants for examination under this Ordinance, 31 candidates received their Certificates, whilst 6 failed in showing themselves qualified.

  33. Much inconvenience and considerable insecurity arises from the employment of uncertificated Engineers on inany of the steamers on this Coast. I should view with great satisfaction an Ordinance extending the present Examination Board at Hongkong to the examining into the qualifications of and granting Certificates to this class of officers.

MARINE COURTS (ORDINANCE No. 11 OF 1360.)

  34. There have been six Courts held under the provisions of this Ordinance on four vessels propelled by steam and two sailing ships. The sailing ships and three steamers became total wrecks, whilst one steamer was ultimately got afloat. In three of these cases the Masters' Certificates were returned to them; two Masters had their Certificates suspended for nine months; and one Master's Certificate was suspended for six months.

SEAMEN.

  35. 7,829 Seamen were legally discharged in this Colony, and 8,096 were shipped during the year. The number of Seamen in the port legally discharged is now very small, there being, on the 24th instant, only twenty. There is now no excuse for the destitution of even a single Seaman in the Colony. The indiscriminate charity which some persons persist in exercising towards destitutes merely serves to cherish and conserve an intolerable social nuisance.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

117

     The following Extract from the Report on the late Balasore Cyclone by Mr. WILLSON, Officiating Meteorological Reporter to the Government of Bengal, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 15th March, 1873.

EXTRACT.

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

     43. It may be well here to draw attention to those indications of the formation of a cyclonic vortex in the north of the Bay and some of the laws of such storms (determined by the researches al experience of Mr. Blanford, Colonel Gastrell, and others) which appear to have been specially Verified by the experience of the late cyclone. These are all practical rules, and are independent of the various theories which may be set forward by different persons to attempt to account for the

rnation and course of a cyclone.

44. Indications of the probable formation of a cyclone in the north of the Bay during the months of May and June:-

      I. The barometer falls steadily for some days round the north of the Bay. The fall occurs first to the south-east at Chittagong and Akyab, and afterwards at Saugor Island, Cuttack, and Calcutta. The barometer at Saugor Island ranges lower than the barometer at Calcutta, (normally, at this season, it ranges higher).

II. At Calcutta the winds become light and variable from S.E. round to N.E. As the disturb- ance increases, masses of clouds drift from E.N.E. or N. E., and as the storm approaches, showers are frequent and the wind blows in gusts.

III. At Saugor Island the winds are at first light and variable, working round from S. E. to N.E. As the disturbance increases, and as the storm approaches, the barometer continues to fall steadily; the wind increases in force with squalls from the N.E., and masses of clouds float rapidly from the same direction. Outside there is a heavy southerly swell.

     IV. At Cuttack, or False Point, the winds are at first light and variable from N.N.E., working gradually round through N. to W. and W.S. W. As the storin approaches, the wind increases in force with squalls from W. and N.N.W.

V. At Chittagong the winds are light and very variable, mostly from S. E. and N.E.

VI. At Akyab the winds are at first light and saturated with moisture, mostly from S. and S.E. As the disturbance increases, the wind increases in force, and works gradually round from S. E. to S. utal S.S.W.

     VII. In the Bay, along and south of a line drawn from about False Point to Cheduba Island, south-westerly gales, accompanied with torrents of rain, prevail. Standing northwards the barometer 1.lis. and rises when standing southwards.

     45. Under the circumstances above specified (III), it, appears unwise for ships in a good anchor- age at Sangor to put to sea. The great danger is that they may be caught in a cyclone before they have got sea room to avoid it. Moreover, the pilot vessels will, under the circumstances, be generally of their stations, and ships will be unable to land their Pilots. It should be remembered also that generally the worst part of a cyclone is the heavy cross sea which accompanies it. In the late cyclone it was this tremendous sea, which is reported never to have been equalled in the Bay, which did such damage. It is accounted for by the long-continued gales from the S.W. This danger would be avoided by not putting to sea until the weather improved. From (VII) the following would appear to be a side rule. Ships coming up the Bay in the months of May and June with fresh south-westerly gales, Accompanied by torrents of rain and a falling barometer, should not press northwards until the weather

pores and the barometer rises steadily.

46. I wish to draw particular attention to the following modern development of the laws of "The direction Melonie storms. Disregard of this law may lead, and has led, to many losses at sea.

the wind, especially at a distance, is far from being at right angles to the bearing of the centre. wind does not revolve round the vortex in circles, but along incurving spirals, differing two, tree, or more points, from the tangential circular direction." For example, a ship running up the Bay with a S.W. gale, squalls, torrents of rain, a barometer falling rapidly, and every appearance of cyclone has no right to conclude that the centre bears N.W. and that therefore a N. or N.NE. The centre, if at a distance, may bear N. or N.N.E., and a northerly course

curse is a safe one.

*

:

y run the ship into it particularly as it may be then almost stationary.

above work, which has been chiefly com- piled for the purpose of aiding students in 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 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.

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

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 radical), 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.

REMARES.-The greatly diminished number of cases, only 178 as against 277 in 1871, may perhaps be accounted for by the following circumstances: (a.) The marked absence, during the year, of Typhoons; Severe epidemics; Casualties involving extensive loss of life, as Landslips, Explosions, &c.; and Fires: (b.) A cooler summer, leading to fewer deaths amongst Sailors, &c., from exposure to the sun, drink, &c.: (c.) Greater care on the part of the Chinese in not exposing dying persons, more especially children, about the streets: (d.) That many persons who would otherwise have been left moribund about the streets haye-been taken to the Chinese Hospital.

E above work, which has been chiefly com- piled for the purpose of aiding students in

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 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.

!

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH APRIL, 1873.

3. In the early part of the year, a reduction of one penny per half-ounce was made in the postage letters sent between the United Kingdom and Hongkong by French Packet thus equalizing the ra to thirty cents each half-ounce letter whether conveyed by British or French Packet, and the

ostage on newspapers for and through the United Kingdom was also reduced by one penny.

4. Under the new arrangement of the China and Australian Mail services, the Mails from the tastralian Colonies and New Zealand for China now reach Point de Galle after the departure of the British Packets for Hongkong, and therefore these Mails are generally conveyed from Point de aile to Hongkong by French Packet, and permission has been given for the transmission of the Mails from China for Australia to Point de Galle by French Packet on occasions when it may be desirable do so, in order to overtake the Australian Mail Packet before her departure from Point de Galle for Sydney. The postage collected in Australia on letters for Hongkong, or in Hongkong on letters for Australia, viz., one shilling per half-ounce letter, now covers the whole charge whether the letters are conveyed by British or by French Packet.

+

      5. Arrangements have been nearly completed, under the Postal Convention entered into by the Imperial Post Office and the Post Office of Austria, by which correspondence addressed to Austria and the several States of the Continent, may be transmitted by the British Mail Packets between this Otice and the Post Offices at Trieste and Alexandria, paid or unpaid.

                               or unpaid. Hitherto pre-payment to Alexandria was compulsory, the postage from thence to destination being collected on delivery.

      6. An altered system of keeping the accounts between this Office and the Imperial Post Office has been inaugurated, which is more comprehensive than that formerly employed, and has imposed increased labor upon this Office.

7. The losses of Mails are fortunately of unfrequent occurrence; but during the past year the Mails from America for Hongkong, Macao, Canton, Swatow, Amoy, Foochow, Manila, the Straits and India, were totally lost by the burning of the United States' Mail Packet America, in the bay of Yoko-

hama.

8. The Mails, which left Yokohama on the 4th September last, were delayed in reaching Hong- kong by the breakdown of the British Mail Packet Ottawa at Oosima, and were forwarded by the following French Mail Packet.

9. On the China Coast, the steamers:

Suwonada, (Mails lost),

Sunshine, (Mails saved),

Chukiang, (Mails lost),

Yeddo, (no Mails), Douglas, (Mails saved),

Rona, (Mails lost), Sedan, (Mails lost),

have been lost, and the Hailoong (Mails saved) went on shore at Breaker Point.

        10. The return marked D shows that the number of United States' Mail Packets between San Francisco and Hongkong was increased to two Packets a month during a few months of the past year, whilst towards the close of the year only one Packet a month arrived and departed.

      11. A Post Office Agency has recently been established at Hankow, which has been found a great convenience to the inhabitants of that Port. The returns from the sale of postage stamps and the business of the Office has been, so far, satisfactory. Its chief patrons are the Russians who readily avail themselves of the security which the Post Office affords, as contrasted with the practice which prevails at all the Ports of China and Japan of sending letters loosely on board, or to the steamers' Agents.

      12. During the year, Mr. D. J. BARRADAS, an Officer who had filled many important positions in the Department during a period of 17 years, and latterly that of Accountant, and who had always been a most zealous servant, was compelled, through a paralytic seizure, to retire.

      13. The Money Order system with the mother country which has been continued during the year with benefit to the remitters of small sums of money has not been productive of sufficient com- mission to cover expenses. It will be observed that whilst the amount remitted to the United Kingdom has increased by ?1,810.17.6 as compared with the amount in 1871, the amount of the Money Orders drawn in the United Kingdom upon China and Japan has remained almost nominal, it has however, exceeded that of the year 1871 by about ?39. The total of the local Money Order transactions in 1872 only slightly exceeded that of 1871.

      14. The question of the establishinent of a Post Office Money Order system between Hongkong, Canton, Swatow, and Amoy on the one side, and the Straits Settlements on the other, has been fully considered, but, for the reasons set forth in my Report of the 10th September last, No. 39, it has not been considered expedient to take any steps to give effect to the scheme.

     15. The proposal, made by this Office, referred to at paragraph 8 of my last annual Report, that the postage on all correspondence forwarded by "private ship" between Ilongkong and the Straits Settlements should be paid at the dispatching office only, and that the receiving office should deliver such correspondence without charge and pay the gratuity to the ship master, still remains in abeyance.

16. The practice of sorting the Mails at Sea, between Hongkong and Singapore, and the arrange. ments under which the Shanghae Mails are sorted at this Office, instead of at sea as formerly, ready for immediate delivery on their reaching Shanghac, has continued to work satisfactorily. In consequence of the Mail from home arriving one day earlier, and the Mails from Hongkong one day later than formerly at Singapore, it was found impossible, on some occasions, to send the Marine Sorter by the British Packets in time for the return Mail, but by the liberality of the Agents of other steamers, they have been, so far, provided with passages to Singapore at little or no expense.

past

17. The usefulness of the British Post Office at Yokohama has not diminished as much as was anticipated, notwithstanding the increased service by the United States' Packets for a part of the year, and I am glad to be able to report that a slight improvement has taken place in the revenue; but whilst the staff of the Office has been reduced, and a saving thereby effected, the total expenses were not less in 1872 than in 1871, owing to a sum of $318.50 having been expended in repairs to the buildings.

18. The Report of my last tour of inspection of the Postal Agencies in China and Japan (20th July, 1871, No. 43), has already brought to your notice the Postal system inaugurated by the Japanese Government, and the information, printed and otherwise, I have afforded that Government on the Pillar boxes are erected English Postal system. The service is now performed by overland couriers.

in the Foreign settlement and in the Native town at Yokohama; the postage from thence on a letter weighing less than an ounce to Kobe, Hiogo and Osaka is 4 cents, to Nagasaki 5 cents, to Neegata 3 cents, and for Hakodate 5 cents; to Yedo a cent and, for every additional 25 miles beyond, one cent. Newspapers, books and packets of samples are charged 1 cent for every 2 ounces; the fee for registering a letter is 2 cents, and the regulations for the transmission of letters, books, samples, &c., are very similar to our own.

  19. The correspondence forwarded to London in private Ship-Mails via Suez under the arrange ment published on the 20th December, 1871, by which such Mails are forwarded to their destination vi? Brindisi, has been very inconsiderable, although Mails forwarded by this route from Hongkong, on the 25th February by the Antenor, on the 10th March by the Patroclus, and on the 16th October by the Antenor, were delivered in London in 38, 39 and 40 days, respectively. The private Ship-Mail despatched on the 28th May by the Deccan from Shanghae was delivered in London in 43

                                       days, and it arrived on the same day as the regular Mail which was forwarded from Shanghae by the British Contract Packet on the 19th May vis. Brindisi. The Mail which was despatched from Foochow foo by the Achilles on the 8th June was delivered in London in 45 days. The average number of days in which such Mails were delivered in London from Hongkong during the North East monsoon was 43, and during the South West monsoon 49. No private ship Mails were forwarded from the United Kingdom to China vi? Brindisi.
