An inspection of the Steam and Hand Engines, Hose, Fire-escape Ladders, and Material generally, was made on the 2nd December, all were found clean and in order. The Hand Engines were worked for a few minutes from the Hydrants near the Cross Roads.

  A parade and inspection was held on the 18th December. As it is not desirable to trench without necessity upon the Pokfoolum water supply, the Steam and Hand Engines were all worked from the sea near the Canton Steamers' Wharf, and found to be in good order. The Government Engines and the Engines owned by Chinese Associations, were present.

An inspection of the Government Brigade, Engines, Hose, Ladders and Implements, was made on the 31st December, all were found in good order.

I have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

Princess Charlotte,

AT HONGKONG, 6th January, 1874.

    SIR,-I have the honor to forward herewith, for Your Excellency's information, the Copy of a Letter I have this day received from the Commander of the P. & O. Steam-ship Avoca, respecting the position of the danger on the East Coast of Kiusiu Island, and marked on the Charts of Japan, as the Nelly Rock.

I have the honor to be,

SIR ARTHUR E. KENNEDY, C.B., K.C.M.G.,

&c.,

&c.,

&c.

P. & O. STEAM NAVIGATION Co.,

HONGKONG, 6th January, 1874.

DEAR SIR,- beg to report for your information that I have had an opportunity of seeing the danger on the East Coast of Kiusiu Island, marked on the Charts of Japan as the Nelly Rock (P.D.), and which was searched for unsuccessfully in 1866 by Commander BULLOCK of H.M.S. Serpent.

The weather at the time being misty with rain, the Islet Ohosima was not visible, but the follow- ing bearings were taken from the S.S. Avoca :

Kayeta Saki, Utoya.na, Nelly Rock,

......

These bearings give the position of the Danger:

.N. 71 W.

....S. 38 W.

....N. 28 W. distance 2 miles.

Lat. 31.48 N.On Admiralty Chart 358, corrected up

Long. 131.35 E. S to 1870.

    I judge that this shoal is at all times covered by about 8 feet of water, there was a heavy swell rolling in from the Eastward at the time of observation, causing heavy breakers on the Rock, about two Cables in extent.

I notice that the latitude is the same as given by the barque Nelly, as also the bearing of Ohosima S.S.W. The longitude of this Coast has been corrected since 1863, which will account for the discre- pancy in that respect.

Commodore PARISH, R.N.,

H.M S. Princess Charlotte,

HONGKONG.

I have, &c.,

(Signed,)

W. B. ANDREWS, Commander P. & O. S.S. Avoca.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 31sT JANUARY, 1874.

  There has lately come to Hongkong a newly coined Japanese Foreign Silver Dollar, and Sir BROOKE ROBERTSON, the British Consul, having requested that Officers might be appointed to assay it, the Viceroy and Haikwan thereupon appointed Officers to melt it down and assay it in conjunction with [an Officer from the British Consulate], when taking the Haikwan pure Silver as the standard, an out-turn was obtained of fully.8957; or, Taels 111.6.4 of this new Eagle Dollar are equivalent to 100 Haikwan Taels of pure Silver. Minutes of the Assay were drawn up in proof thereof.

For the convenience of traders and people, therefore, this Coin should be allowed to be tendered in payment of Duties, at the rate of touch obtained at the Assay, and come into daily circulation.

It becomes the duty then of the Viceroy and his colleagues to issue a Proclamation on the subject for general information.

  This Proclamation, therefore, is for the information of you merchants, traders, soldiers, and people of every district. You must know that a Japanese Eagle Dollar has lately come to Hongkong, and has been jointly assayed by Officers specially appointed for the purpose. It can be taken in payment of Duties and come into general circulation. You must not look upon it with suspicion. Rogues, sharpers and the like are moreover hereby strictly forbidden to fabricate fspurious imitations of this new Eagle Dollar with a view to their own profit; and should they dare to set this prohibition at defiance, and fabricate false Coin, they shall upon discovery most assuredly be at once arrested and punished.

Let every one obey with trembling!

Let there be no disobedience!

A Special Proclamation.

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 29th January, 1874.

From this number of Deaths, so far as the health of the Colony is concerned, should be deducted those of Non-residents, which amounted to 56.

I annex a Return showing the prevailing diseases in the Colony which have resulted in Death. The rate of Mortality for every thousand persons during 1873 among the British and Foreign Community, was 27.72, and amongst the Chinese 22.29, while for the whole population of the Colony the rate was 22.57 for every thousand persons. *

     The Ordinance has been very successful in its operation. It must not, however, be supposed that every Birth and Death has been registered, but there is good reason for believing that compara- tively few cases (especially as regards the Deaths) have not been recorded.

     The success of this important measure at its introduction is, I think, mainly due to the great care and trouble taken by Mr. TONNOCHY in causing its provisions to be thoroughly explained to the Chinese Community, and to the ability he displayed in organizing the staff engaged in carrying out the details of the Ordinance.

I have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

CECIL C. SMITH, Registrar General.

The Honorable J. GARDINER AUSTIN,

Colonial Secretary,

HE 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.

ARTICLE III.

   No British subject shall be delivered up by the Government or authorities of the United King- dom to the Government or authorities of the Em- pire; and in like manner no Brazilian subject shall be delivered up by the Government or au- thorities of the Empire to the Government or au- thorities of the United Kingdom.

   If, however, the person who has taken refuge in the territory of the other High Contracting Party shall have become naturalized there after the perpetration of the crime, such naturalization shall not be an obstacle to his extradition accord- ing to the stipulations of this Treaty.

ARTICLE IV.

   The extradition shall not take place if the per- son claimed has already been tried and acquitted, or punished, or if he is under trial, for the same crime for which extradition is asked. If he should be under trial for any other crime, his extradition shall be deferred until the conclusion of the trial, and the fulfilment of the punishment, when such may have been awarded.

ARTICLE V.

The extradition shall also not take place if, after the perpetration of the crime, or the institu- tion of the penal prosecution, or the conviction thereon, the refugee shall have acquired exemp- tion from prosecution, or punishment, by lapse of time, according to the laws of the State appealed to.

ARTICLE VI.

   The person claimed shall not be delivered up for crimes of a political character, and when he shall have been delivered up on other grounds he shall not be punished for anterior political crimes. He shall not, moreover, be delivered up if he can clearly prove that the requisition is made with the object of trying him, or of punishing him, for a political crime.

ARTICLE VII.

   A person surrendered cannot be kept in prison, or brought to trial, in the State to which the sur- render is made for any other crime, or on account of any other matters, than those for which the ex- tradition has been granted. This statement is not applicable to crimes committed after the extradi-

tion.

ARTICLE VIII.

   If the person whose extradition is demanded by one of the High Contracting Parties shall be also claimed by one or more other Governments, on account of crimes committed in their respective territories, the following rule shall be observed:

   If he shall be a subject of the High Contracting Party who claims him, the surrender shall be made to it. If he be not so, the other High Contracting Party shall have the power of delivering him up to the reclaiming Government which in the case in question may appear to the former best entitled to the preference.

ARTICLE IX.

 A requisition for extradition shall be made through the respective Diplomatic Agents of the High Contracting Powers.

When it relates to a person accused only, it must be accompanied by the warrant of arrest, issued by the competent authority of the State applying for it, and by such evidence as according to the laws of the place where the accused is found, would justify the arrest if the crime was there committed.

If the extradition refers to a person already con- victed, the application must be accompanied by a copy of the sentence of condemnation, passed against him, given by a competent Tribunal of the State making the requisition.

 The requisition cannot, however, be founded on a sentence passed in contumaciam, that is to say, when the delinquent has not been personally cited to defend himself.

ARTICLE X.

If the requisition has been in conformity with the foregoing stipulations, the competent authori- ties of the State to which it has been addressed shall proceed to the capture of the refugee. The prisoner shall be brought before a competent au- thority, who is to examine him and conduct the preliminary investigations of the case just as if the apprehension had taken place for crime committed in the same country.

ARTICLE XI.

The extradition shall in no case take place before the expiration of fifteen days counted from the ap- prehension, and after that delay it shall only be carried out when the evidence has been found sufficient according to the laws of the country ap- plied to, either for subjecting the prisoner to trial if the crime had been there committed, or to prove the identity of the person convicted and condemned by the Tribunals of the State making the requisition.

ARTICLE XII. ·

 In the examinations which are to be made in corformity with the foregoing stipulations, the authorities of the State to which application is made, shall admit as valid evidence the sworn depositions or declarations of witnesses, which were taken in the other State, or the respective copies thereof as was the judicial documents, warrants, or sentences, transmitted therefrom, provided they are signed or certified by the hand of the Judge, Magistrate, or public officer of that State, and authenticated, either by the oath of some witness, or by the official seal of the Minister of Justice or some other Minister of State.

ARTICLE XIII.

If within two months counting from the date of arrest, sufficient evidence for the extradition shall not have been presented, the person arrested shall be set at liberty. He shall likewise be set at li- berty if, within two months of the day on which he was placed at the disposal of the Diplomatic Agent, he shall not have been sent off to the reclaiming country.

ARTIGO IX.

A requisi??o para a extradi??o ser? feita por intermedio dos respectivos Agentes Diplomaticos das Altas Partes Contractantes.

Se ella referir-se a um individuo s?mente ac- cusado, dever? ser accompanhada do mandado de pris?o expedido pela auctoridade competente do Estado que a solicitar, e de provas que segundo as leis do logar onde o accusado for encontrado justi- ficassem a captura quando o crime fosse ahi com- mettido.

Se a extradi??o referir-se a um individuo j? sentenciado, o pedido dever? ser acompanhado do traslado da senten?a condemnatoria expedida contra elle pelo Tribunal competente do Estado que fizer a requisi??o.

ARTIGO X.

Se a requisi??o estiver de conformidade com as anteriores estipula??es, a auctoridade competente do Estado a que ella se tiver dirigido proceder? ? captura do refugiado. O preso ser? levado ? presen?a da auctoridade competente, que ter? de examinal-o, e de dirigir as investiga??es preli- minares do cazo como se a captura fosse effeituada por crime commettido no mesmo paiz.

\

ARTIGO XI.

A extradi??o nunca ter? logar antes da expira??o de 15 dias contados da captura, e depois d'esse prazo s? se effeituar? quando as provas forem julgadas sufficientes segundo as leis do paiz? que for pedida, ou seja para sujeitar o preso ? processo se o crime fosse ahi commettido, ou seja para justificar a identidade da pessoa convicta e condemnada pelos tribunaes do Estado que fez a requisi??o.

ARTIGO XII.

Nos exames ? que se tiver de proceder de con- formidade com as precedentes estipula??es as auctoridades do Estado, ? que se fez o pedido, admittir?o como provas os depoimentos sob jura- mento, ou as declara??es, das testemunhas, que for?o tomadas no outro Estado ou as respectivas copias, assim como os documentos judiciaes, man- dados, ou senten?as, expedidos d'alli, com tanto que sej?o assignados ou legalisados pela propria m?o do juiz, magistrado ou empregado publico d'aquelle Estado, e authenticados ou por juramento de alguma testemunha ou com o sello official do Ministro da Justi?a, ou de qualquer outro Ministro d'Estado.

ARTIGO XIII.

This delivery shall not be limited to effects or articles robbed, stolen, or obtained by other crimes, but shall extend to all that might serve as evidence of the crime; it shall be made even when the extradition could not be made after orders to that effect, on account of the flight or death of the person claimed.

ARTICLE XV.

    As Her Britannic Majesty has the power to adopt special arrangements in the Colonies and possessions, respecting the delivering up of delin- quents, Her Majesty will facilitate the reclama- tions of Brazil in this respect, as far as may be possible, with due, regard, however, to the pro- visions of this Treaty.

The Undersigned, Plenipotentiaries of Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and of His Majesty the Emperor of Brazil, charged with making a Treaty for the extradition of criminals, upon which they have at this present agreed, having met in conference, took into their consideration the fol- lowing subjects:-

They directed their attention to the fact that the criminal law of England punishes the crime of infanticide with the same penalty as that of murder, when accompanied by corresponding cir- cumstances, and that it results therefrom that extradition should take place even for attempting to commit that crime.

On the other hand, they observed, that accord- ing to the Brazilian law, infanticide is not pun- ished as murder, nor even as manslaughter, but as a crime distinct from both, and by a minor pun- ishment, and that consequently extradition should not take place for the attempt.

They consequently resolved to declare that extradition shall solely take place for the crime of infanticide, and not for an attempt to commit that

crime.

With this declaration they agreed to close this conference, from which the present Protocol emanates, which being found in conformity, was signed, each having a copy thereof.

Reunidos em conferencia os Plenipotenciarios de Sua Magestade a Rainha do Reino Unido da Gr? Bretanha e Irlanda, e de Sua Magestade o Imperador do Brazil, abaixo assignados, encarre- gados de ajustar um Tractado de extradi??o de delinquentes, em que nesta data accordar?o, tomar?o em considera??o a seguinte materia :

Ponderou-se que a lei criminal Ingleza pune o crime de infanticidio com a mesma pena do crime de murder, quando acompahado das circumstan- cias deste, e que dahi resulta ter lugar a extradi??o mesmo por tentativa.

Por outro lado ponderou-se que segundo a lei Brasileira, o infanticidio n?o ? punido como o homicidio sujeito ? pena de morte, nem mesmo como homicidio, sim como crime distincto d'elles, e com pena menor, e que consequentemente n?o deve ter lugar a extradi??o por tentativa.

Resolver?o pois declarar que a extradi??o s? poder? verificar-se pelo crime de infanticidio, e n?o pela tentativa d'elle.

·

Com esta declara??o entender?o terminar esta conferencia, da qual se lavrou o presente Proto- collo, que depois de achar-se conforme foi assig- nado, ficando cada um com o seu exemplar.

With this declaration they agreed to close this conference, from which the present Protocol emanates, which being found in conformity, was signed, each having a copy thereof.

Done in the city of Rio de Janeiro, the thir- teenth day of November of 1872.

Reunidos em conferencia os Plenipotenciarios de Sua Magestade a Rainha do Reino Unido da Gr? Bretanha e Irlanda, e de Sua Magestade o Imperador do Brazil, abaixo assignados, encarre- gados de ajustar um Tractado de extradi??o de delinquentes, em que nesta data accordar?o, tomar?o em considera??o a seguinte materia :

Ponderou-se que a lei criminal Ingleza pune o crime de infanticidio com a mesma pena do crime de murder, quando acompahado das circumstan- cias deste, e que dahi resulta ter lugar a extradi??o mesmo por tentativa.

Por outro lado ponderou-se que segundo a lei Brasileira, o infanticidio n?o ? punido como o homicidio sujeito ? pena de morte, nem mesmo como homicidio, sim como crime distincto d'elles, e com pena menor, e que consequentemente n?o deve ter lugar a extradi??o por tentativa.

Resolver?o pois declarar que a extradi??o s? poder? verificar-se pelo crime de infanticidio, e n?o pela tentativa d'elle.

·

Com esta declara??o entender?o terminar esta conferencia, da qual se lavrou o presente Proto- collo, que depois de achar-se conforme foi assig- nado, ficando cada um com o seu exemplar.

Feito na Corte do Rio de Janeiro aos treze dias de Noveinbro de 1872.

And whereas the ratifications of the said Treaty were exchanged at Rio de Janeiro on the twenty-eighth day of August last :

Now, therefore, Her Majesty, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, and in virtue of the authority committed to Her by the said recited Act, doth order, and it is hereby ordered, that from and after the first day of December, one thousand eight hundred and seventy-three, the said Act shall apply in the case of the said Treaty with the Emperor of Brazil.

loss or damage which he may have sustained by reason of the detention of the ship for the

purpose of survey, or otherwise in respect of such survey.

All moneys payable by the Board of Trade in respect or by reason of the survey or detention of a ship under this Act shall, subject to the right by this section provided of recovering such moneys from the com- plainant, be paid out of moneys to be provided by Parliament.

A CHINESE AND ENGLIS

DICTIONARY,

BY

THE REVD. W. LOBSCHEID.

HE above work, which has been chiefly com THE

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.

PRICE $8 per Copy.

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 24th January, 1874.

 SIR,-In accordance with your instructions, I have the honor to forward, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Annual Police Report and Returns of Crime for the

year 1873. 2. There is a marked diminution in the amount of Crime generally, and fewer cases have escaped detection than in the previous year. The decrease in serious Crimes is 5.73 per cent and in- minor Offences 31.17 per cent.

 3. The most important feature in these Returns is that only one case of Piracy has been re- ported. The helmsman of one of the piratical Junks engaged in this affair was recognized, convicted and executed. It would, however, probably be imprudent for European sailing vessels to rely on this apparent immunity from attack, and to sail unarmed, until it is ascertained what will be the future pursuits of the men now connected with the Coolie Barracoons of a neighbouring Colony when they are thrown out of the employ in March next. Information has already reached me that one gang of these men is being formed close to our Kowloong boundary for the purposes of depredation.

4. In the Spring of 1873, Government decided to repress, as far as possible, abuses in relation to Chinese Emigration, and an Ordinance was passed constituting it (among other matters) an offence to decoy persons from the Colony for the purpose of Emigration. There has consequently been a large increase in the number of cases of Kidnapping reported; but the fact that so many as two fifths of the persons accused were discharged, shows that a large proportion of these reports were false. 5. The severity with which Street Gamblers have been punished has had the effect of causing a diminution in this class of Offence; and it would appear that wealthier Gamblers prefer the security of private Clubs, or to cross over to Chinese Kowloong rather than risk attending any secret Gambling House in this Colony.

 6. Since the construction of a Guard House at Hung Ham and of a Station at Yau-Ma-Ti, crime in British Kowloong has greatly diminished. But as there is reason to suppose that several Chinese frequent the latter village as a convenient place from which to smuggle Opium into China, and as these Smugglers are a dangerous class of people, I think it would be advisable to direct the Inspector in charge of the Station to board and examine Junks as is done at other outlying villages.

7. I find that boats to the number of 1086 are used solely as residences by Chinese. These boats are unlicensed, and are in every way a source of trouble to the Police. Not only are they convenient receptacles for stolen goods and places of refuge for bad characters, but they are the means of propagating and spreading disease.

    8. It appears to me highly desirable to entirely prohibit the Chinese from using boats solely as residences, but if this is considered too extreme a measure, I would desire to suggest that they should be numbered and their occupants registered. The number of these boats is reported to be as follows:-

Sh?u-ki-wan,.

35 used as residences and fish lans.

POLICE FORCE.

    9. The conduct of the Inspectors has continued to give me every satisfaction. Last year was, I believe, the first since the establishment of the Force during which no vacancy occurred in this rank from resignation or dismissal.

    10. There have been a great number of changes in the body of the Force, no less than 158 men of all nationalities having been struck off the Roll from different causes. The expiration of the terms of five years' service of several Indians caused many vacancies in that portion of the Force. It became necessary to dismiss for misconduct three of the men (exclusive of one who absconded) who joined from Scotland, and three who joined from England.

    11. The Government has authorized the purchase of bedding, &c., from the revenue of the Department. These articles were previously paid for from the Fine Fund, the limited resources of which prevented many articles being supplied which were desirable.

MISCELLANEOUS.

12. I have the honor to enclose the following Returns:-

POLICE SCHOOL,

HONGKONG, 7th February, 1874.

     SIR, I have to submit this my fifth Annual Report on the Police Schools, viz., that for the year ending 31st December, 1873.

In fact, as a rule, they take a greater interest in learning, and study hard in private. Under those circumstances it was thought that two evenings a week was as much as could be reasonably demanded of them.

     6. The classes formed for the instruction of the Europeans in Chinese have, I regret to say, proved Classes for the instruction an entire failure.

     At first all Europeans had to attend, but this caused dissatisfaction. Many had not the slightest in- clination for, or intention of, acquiring the language; others, who were at first willing to attempt it, became discouraged when they found it was not so easily learned as they anticipated, so that when the attendance was made voluntary they fell off till the classes virtually ceased to exist. There are a few who still make Chinese a study, but they are very few indeed. Every inducement has been held out to the men of the Force to encourage them, but without avail.

7. The progress of the School on the whole is satisfactory.

Progress of School satisfactory.

for certificates of exemption from School.

8. At the Quarterly examination for certificates of exemption from School, held in December and Quarterly examinations January last, 52 men presented themselves, and of those only five were found up to the standard. This is a small number, but taking into consideration that examinations are novel to most of the men, and their being the first of the kind, I am not surprised. No doubt at each succeeding examination the number will be greater.

Subjects of quarterly examination.

SIR ARTHUR EDWARD KENNEDY, K.C.M.G., C.B., Governor and Commander-in-Chief.

No. 1 OF 1874.

An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to empower the Governor to exercise certain Powers under "The Merchant Shipping Act, 1873."

[5th March, 1874.]

W Governor of Honghong to those which are exercised under

THEREAS it is expedient to give similar Powers to the

Sections XII and XIII of "The Merchant Shipping Act, 1873," by the Board of Trade: Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:- Survey of Ships I. Where the Governor has received a Complaint or has Reason suspected of to believe that any British Ship is, by reason of the defective Con- being unsea-

dition of her Hull, Equipments, or Machinery, or by reason of worthy. [M. S. A. 73, overloading or improper Loading, unfit to proceed to Sea without Para. 12.] serious Danger to human Life, he may, if he thinks fit, appoint some competent Person or Persons to survey such Ship, and the Equipments, Machinery and Cargo thereof, and to report thereon to the Governor.

Any Person so appointed may, for the Purposes of such Survey, require the Unloading or Removal of any Cargo, Ballast, or Tackle and shall have all the Powers of an Inspector appointed under "The Merchant Shipping Act, 1854."

Any Person who (having Notice of the Intention to hold such Survey) wilfully does or causes to be done any Act by which the Person appointed to make such Survey is prevented from or obs- tructed in ascertaining the Condition of the Ship, her Equipments, Machinery and Cargo, shall be liable to a Penalty not exceeding Fifty Pounds.

The Governor may, if he thinks fit, order that any Ship be detained for the Purpose of being surveyed under this Section, and thereupon the Harbor Master may detain such Ship until her Release be ordered either by the Governor or by any Court to which an Appeal is given under this Ordinance.

:

Upon the Receipt of the Report of the Person making any such Survey, the Governor may, if in his Opinion the Ship cannot pro- ceed to Sea without serious Danger to human Life, make such further Order as he may think requisite as to the Detention of the Ship, or as to her Release, either absolutely or upon the Perform- ance of such Conditions with respect to the Execution of Repairs or Alterations, or the Unloading or Reloading of Cargo, as the Governor may impose. He may also, from Time to Time, vary or add to such Order.

A Copy of any such Order and of the Report upon which it was founded, and also of any Variation of, or Addition to, such Order, shall be delivered as soon as possible to the Owner or Master of the Ship to which it relates.

When a Ship has been detained under this Section, she shall not be released by reason of her British Register having been closed. Costs of Survey. II. If upon the Survey of a Ship under this Ordinance, she is re- [M. S. A. 73, ported to have been at the Time of the Survey, having regard to the Para. 13.]

Nature of the Service for which she was then intended, unfit to proceed to Sea without serious Danger to human Life, the Ex- penses incurred by the Governor in respect of the Survey shall be paid by the Owner of the Ship to the Governor and shall, without Prejudice to any other Remedy, be recoverable by him in the same Manner as Salvage is recoverable.

If upon such Survey the Ship is not reported to have been unfit. to proceed to Sea, having regard to the Nature of the Service for which she was intended, the Governor shall be liable to pay Com- pensation to any Person for any Loss or Damage which he may have sustained by reason of the Detention of the Ship for the Purpose of Survey, or otherwise in respect of such Survey.

Where a Complaint has been made to the Governor that a Ship is not fit to proceed to Sea, he may, if he thinks fit, before ordering a Survey of the Ship, require the Complainant to give or provide such Security as he may think sufficient for the Payment of the Costs and Expenses which he may incur in respect of the Survey of the Ship and of the Compensation which he may be rendered liable to pay for Loss or Damage caused by her Detention for the Purpose of such Survey, or otherwise in respect of such Survey.

III. If the Owner of any Ship surveyed under this Ordinance Appeal from is dissatisfied with any Order of the Governor made upon such Decision of Survey, he may apply to the Vice-Admiralty Court of Hongkong (M. S. A. 73, The Court may, upon such Application, if it thinks fit, appoint Para. 14.] one or more competent Persons to survey the Ship anew, and any Surveyor so appointed shall have all the Powers of the Person by whom the original Survey was made. Such Survey anew shall, if so required by the Governor or the Shipowner, be made in the Presence of any Person or Persons appointed by them respectively to attend at the Survey.

The Court to which such Application is made may make such Order as to the Detention or Release of the Ship, as to the Pay- ment of any Costs and Damages which may have been occasioned by her Detention, as to the Payment of the Expenses of the original Survey, and of the Survey anew, and otherwise as to the Payment of any Costs of, and incident to, the Application, as to the Court may seem just.

                           HONGKONG, 21st February, 1874. SIR,-I have the honour to forward to you the Blue Book Returns and the Annual Report on Education for 1873.

2. With no increase in the number of Government Schools last year, there was a large increase of scholars. The number enrolled was greater by 358 than in 1872, while the expenditure on the whole of the schools was only $290 more than for the previous year.

    3. The Village Schools, a name which has been given to all the Government schools except the Central School, are 29 in number. Of these, 15 are supported solely by Government, and are under its complete control. The remaining 14 receive aid to the extent of $60 a year, the villagers undertaking to provide a school-house and to pay the half of the master's salary. These aided schools are subject to the usual inspection, and Government puts a veto on the appointment of a master, if he is not able to pass the required examination.

4. Such is the theory, but the practice does not quite accord with it. There is no room for doubt that, in most cases, the master has to pay the rent out of the small grant given to the school; and the moiety of his salary which the village undertakes to provide is as often unpaid as not. In many of the villages the people are extremely poor, and the master passes rich with his five dollars a month. On no other ground can much of the reluctance of the people to contribute towards the education of their children be explained: but, as they cling strongly to what they consider their right to select a master, they are ready to promise whatever may be required of them; and then, when the school has been fairly started, and the master tires of paying the rent, the villagers plead poverty and request an additional allowance to provide a school-house.

      Unsatisfactory as this state of things is, no immediate remedy can be applied, without in- curring greater expense than the results would justify. If the schools were removed entirely from local control, they would, except perhaps in the more populous villages, be very badly attended, and, in some cases, they might be entirely deserted; for the parents, who have had little or no education,

No. 14.

J. GARDINER Austin, Colonial Secretary.

                           HONGKONG, 21st February, 1874. SIR,-I have the honour to forward to you the Blue Book Returns and the Annual Report on Education for 1873.

2. With no increase in the number of Government Schools last year, there was a large increase of scholars. The number enrolled was greater by 358 than in 1872, while the expenditure on the whole of the schools was only $290 more than for the previous year.

    3. The Village Schools, a name which has been given to all the Government schools except the Central School, are 29 in number. Of these, 15 are supported solely by Government, and are under its complete control. The remaining 14 receive aid to the extent of $60 a year, the villagers undertaking to provide a school-house and to pay the half of the master's salary. These aided schools are subject to the usual inspection, and Government puts a veto on the appointment of a master, if he is not able to pass the required examination.

4. Such is the theory, but the practice does not quite accord with it. There is no room for doubt that, in most cases, the master has to pay the rent out of the small grant given to the school; and the moiety of his salary which the village undertakes to provide is as often unpaid as not.

      Unsatisfactory as this state of things is, no immediate remedy can be applied, without in- curring greater expense than the results would justify. If the schools were removed entirely from local control, they would, except perhaps in the more populous villages, be very badly attended, and, in some cases, they might be entirely deserted; for the parents, who have had little or no education,

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 7TH MARCH, 1874.

do not see the necessity of it for their children, unless it can be had in a way which brings some present and direct advantage to themselves. On the principle, therefore, that it is better for the children to have some instruction than to have none, the schools should be maintained. By constant vigilance, improvements although necessarily slow cannot fail to be effected.

6. During the year, the number enrolled at these schools was 338, giving each an average of 24. The attendance is not very regular, the two harvests and other field work taking away the children for a considerable time. Towards the end of the year, too, the numbers rapidly decrease, for no reason that can be assigned except the fact that in these villages time is of very little account, and a month or two less at school in the course of the year is a matter of no importance. On the whole, however, there is considerable improvement on the state of things three years ago.

7. In last Report, the schools at Yau-m? T? and Little Hongkong were mentioned as having given rise to much annoyance. After the Chinese New Year, on a promise being made of a change for the better, the schools were continued as they were. At Yau-m? T?, it was soon discovered that the master and a number of the people were doing their utmost to prevent the erection of the Police Station in the village. The school was then taken away from local control, and is now one of the Government schools properly so called. This change was made in June, when the numbers fell at once from 22 to 8; and, although they afterwards reached 17 in November, the opposition made to the change by the former master and his friends kept the school in a very unsatisfactory state up to the end of the year. The present master, however, has had many promises of scholars after the New Year holidays, and if these promises are kept the Yau-m? T? school will be very differently reported on next year.

8. A new master was appointed to the school at Little Hongkong in the month of March, and the grant was continued, with the understanding that on the next complaint it would be permanently withdrawn. The villagers have, this time, got a man of a very different temper from that of the previous one, who would not bate a tittle of his rights. The present master makes no complaints, but it is currently reported and generally believed in Aberdeen and other adjacent places that, instead of receiving anything, he has to give monthly presents to certain of the villagers for the privilege of getting their children to teach. The school has improved considerably under the pre- sent master. In order of efficiency it was last on the list in 1872. It is now twentieth, but it will be long before it is in a very satisfactory state, if the people continue to do as they have been doing.

√998. 9. The number enrolled at the 15 schools which are entirely under Government control was

998, giving an average of 67 scholars to each. These schools are now getting into a very satisfactory condition, as far as numbers and regularity are concerned. They were long a source of much trouble. A school would be first on the list this year and at the bottom of it the next, without any very apparent reason for the change. No doubt the getting quit of many unqualified masters, and the fact that both masters and scholars now know better what is expected of them, have gone far to bring this about. These schools, ten years ago, were as unsatisfactory as the aided schools are now; and it is this which gives rise to the hope that before another decade is over an equally great change will have taken place in all the native schools in the Colony

10. The best of the 15 schools is the one at Stanley. The present master has the credit of making it what it is. It is a model of order and regularity, and is in high esteem in the village. The master, however, is very unwilling to remain. He is dissatisfied with the place, as it removes him so far from anything like congenial society. The people, too, do not seem to live together in great harmony, and he is very much afraid of getting mixed up with their disputes. It will be a serious matter for the school if he cannot be persuaded to remain.

11. The schools at Sai-ying P?n, Sh?ung W?n, T?i Wong Kung, W?ntsai and Sh?u k? W?n come next in order. At these, the attendance is very large and very regular. At no place has the advantage of a good master been so evident as at Sh?u-k? W?n. Three years ago, it had become a question whether any further attempt should be made to maintain a school in the village. When a H?kk? master was appointed, failure was attributed to the indifference of the people. When he was succeeded by a P?nti, similar excuses were never wanting. Under the present master, both P?ntis and H?kk?s avail themselves of the school, and express themselves as highly satisfied. If the people were more straightforward when anything is really amiss with a school, salutary changes would be effected more rapidly; but, as a rule, they are studiously silent until their information is no longer of any use.

12. The change at Aberdeen, recommended last year, has now been carried into effect. The best scholar at the Central School was appointed master. English is taught in the forenoon and Chinese in the afternoon. Nothing more was attempted than reading, writing and arithmetic, and possibly little more may be effected during the present year. The little, however, that was attempted was well done; and, taking all things into consideration, the examination at the end of the year was sufficiently satisfactory.

13. The change took place in March, and before the end of the month, 18 scholars were enrolled. They came in very gradually. The new r?gime was not so popular as some expected; but it was much better that the school should gradually make its way, than be frequented at first and ultimately deserted. The attendance was very regular for six months; but, after that, it declined rapidly, till in November there were only seven scholars. The master got disheartened and insisted on re-

1

105

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 7TH MARCH, 1874.

   signing. There was much difficulty in persuading him to stay. The reason given for withdrawing the boys was that, as they had failed to learn to speak English in six months, there was no hope of their ever being able to do so. It was thus the immediate prospect of turning a knowledge of English to practical account that induced the parents to send their children. Mere mental im- provement was an element in the calculation which it never occurred to them to include. Not- withstanding this, the number of scholars rose to 18 again in December, and 17 were present on the examination day. Nothing startling was ever expected from the change, and years may elapse before much good is done, but in its ultimate success there need be no want of confidence. Prejudices are not removed in a year, and Chinese prejudice in favour of their own system of education is too firmly rooted to be uptorn by any sudden effort.

14. The Central School has reached its culmination as regards numbers and efficiency if the building and the teaching staff remain as the are. It might have been nearer the truth to have said that it had already begun to decline, for it is impossible that only three English masters can do justice to so many scholars. During the year, 502 were enrolled. The highest attendance was 364, the lowest 308. The average number enrolled during the twelve months was 349, and the average attendance for the same period was 329. This is very much in advance of previous years, but here advancement must stop for the present, simply from want of room.

5. There is no reason to suppose that any difficulty will be made about the appointment of an additional master, and that in itself will be of the greatest possible advantage to the school. A new building is a very different matter; but, as the Government is fully alive to the inadequacy of the present accommodation and to the desirability of having as early as possible a school worthy of the name, it is sufficient to record the want here, that there may be no chance of its being lost sight af. On these two points, that of a new master and a new school, a special report was made in July last. It is not necessary, therefore, to go into the details again.

     16. In the month of May last, the sum of $3,000 was handed over to Trustees by the members of the late Morrison Education Society to found a Scholarship at this school Up to the present time, the fund has been lying idle, as the Government has been obliged to decline the scholarship on the terms offered by the majority of the Trustees. Whether the school will ultimately enjoy the benefit of the scholarship, unfettered by conditions inconsistent with the system on which it is con- ducted, is a question which cannot be much longer delayed. A legal decision on the point at issue seems to be the only practical solution of the difficulty, and such a decision will have to be obtained soon, if no arrangement can be made in the meantime.

     17. The difficulty which has arisen in this matter points to recent discussions on the constitution of the school and to the dissatisfaction which has been expressed by some at what they are pleased to call its "godless" character. Were any good likely to accrue from a re-opening of the discussion, or were it at all likely that a statement of the case would carry conviction to the minds of those who object to the school, the question would be discussed here, at the risk of much repetition; but the position which has been taken up with regard to religious teaching has been so often reviewed in these annual reports, and as often challenged by fresh critics, that it would be a futile task to go over the ground again. Theoretically right or theoretically wrong, the position of the Government with regard to education is perfectly intelligible, and has been found to be eminently practical. It is simply an endeavour to meet, as far as can possibly be done, every denomination, Christian and Pagan, on common ground; and a determination to refrain from wounding the susceptibilities of any one on the point of all points on which men are most susceptible. If a precise statement cannot be given of the exact spot on which all are thus met, it does not follow that no such meeting-place has been found. To wait till a theory has been perfected, before action is taken in a matter of vital importance to the well being of the colony as well as of individuals, is to follow the example of Rusticus in making no effort to wade or swim the stream, but contenting himself with waiting on the bank until all the water shall have run down.

    18. In the month of April last, the Legislative Council approved of a scheme for the better promotion of elementary education by assisting denominational and other schools on the well-known system of Grants-in-aid. The scheme as applied to the Colony differs in no essential particular from that in operation elsewhere. Certain modifications had, of course, to be made to suit the peculiar necessities of the place, but, beyond that, the scheme contains nothing new or unusual. Its purport may be given in a single sentence. All schools which devote four hours a day to secular instruction may devote the other school hours to religious instruction; and for the actual results of the secular instruction, as ascertained by examination, Government allows a certain fixed sum for each scholar who reaches a certain standard of scholarship. That is virtually the whole scheme; and it has met with the approval of all denominations, Catholic and Protestant alike.

19. During the past year, the following schools applied for Grants:-St. Saviour's Day School (Catholic), St. Stephen's School (Church of England), Victoria Boys' School (Undenominational), W?ntsai Chapel School (London Mission), T'?i-p'ing Sh?n Chapel School (London Mission), and the Baxter Vernacular Girls' Schools (Church of England). St. Saviour's School, being the first to make application, had to comply with the provisions of the scheme in their entirety. The others applied later and, with the exception of the last, were allowed half the values of the standards for those scholars who had attended 100 times. The Baxter Vernacular Schools, not having applied till

September, were allowed two-fifths of the values of the standards for 80 attendances. These ar- rangements were made to enable the scheme to be brought into operation at once, and to get the returns made up at the end of the year.

was 25.

20. St. Saviour's School, under the Management of the Revd. Father PALMER, was attended during the year by 110 scholars, principally Portuguese, but including English and other nation- alities as well. The average monthly enrolment was 64, and the daily attendance varied from 44 to 62. The number presented for examination, that is, all who had attended 200 times and upwards, Of these 16 passed and 9 failed. The grant to the school amounted $64. This must not be taken as a measure of what the school can do, and will do in the future; although, even as a first examination, it is not by any means satisfactory, and no one feels this more than the manager and teacher. Two points need careful looking to in this school. There must be a stricter discipline in the way of attendance, and the teaching power must be increased, before the school can take a high rank among the educational institutions of the Colony. In all other points it leaves little to be de- sired. The teacher is able and energetic, but he cannot possibly do justice to such a large school single- handed. A very favourable change has recently been made in the school books, which were formerly by far too difficult. All the other appliances are ample and in excellent order.

21. St. Stephen's School under the Management of the Revd. A. B. HUTCHINSON was only recently established and is solely for Chinese boys. The number of scholars for the year was 75, the average monthly enrolment being 61, and the daily attendance varying from 40 to 53. On the examination day 29 scholars were examined, of whom only four failed. A larger number would have been presented, if the examination had taken place earlier. Many of the boys had left for their native villages on the approach of the Chinese New Year. This difficulty will be obviated in future either by holding the examination earlier, or by insisting on the boys remaining until within a fort- night of the new year. The school is doing

The school is doing much good in a very poor locality of the city. The teacher has his work at heart and labours faithfully. The sum gained by the school was $33. This will be very much improved upon next year, when the full number of attendances is made up, and full values given for passes. It is also to be noted that the third was the highest standard under which scholars were presented. As the school advances, higher standards will be reached, and a more liberal sum will thus be at the manager's disposal for its support and extension.

22. W?ntsai and T'?i-p'ing Sh?n Chapel Schools for Chinese boys are under the Management of the Revd. Dr. EITEL. At the former, 54 scholars were enrolled during the year. The average monthly enrolment was 54, and the daily attendance varied from 48 to 52. The number examined was 42, and of these 19 passed very satisfactorily. Scholars were presented under all the six standards, which accounts for the greater number of failures. T'?i-p'ing Sh?n Chapel School was attended by 42 scholars. The monthly average was 37, and the daily attendance varied from 31 to 35. At this school 28 were presented for examination under the first five standards. There were 14 failures. The sum gained by the two schools amounted to $110.50. A very much higher pro- portion of passes could have been obtained at these two schools, if the scholars had been ranged, as it was perfectly competent for the manager to do, under lower standards. Having, however, full confidence in the teachers, he classified.the scholars as has been stated, and the result showed that his confidence was not misplaced. The teachers are able, hard working men. They were fully aware of the extent to which the credit of the schools depended on their exertions, and they exerted themselves accordingly. The schools reflect great credit on masters and manager.

A

23. The Baxter Vernacular Girls' Schools under the Management of the Revd. A. B. HUTCHINSON, are three in number, but for the purposes of the Grant-in-aid scheme they are considered as one. This arrangement was necessary because the schools, taken singly, could not have reached the average attendance qualifying each of them for a grant; and, in order to meet, as far as possible, the difficulties attending female education here, and the reluctance of parents to send girls any but the shortest distance from home, the manager thought it advisable to have three schools in various parts of the city, to secure as large an attendance as possible. The three schools were, therefore, taken as three separate class-rooms, the scholars being classified as if belonging to one school; and as such they will be here spoken of. The total attendance for the year was 133. The average monthly enrolment was 72, and the daily attendance varied from 42 to 48. On the examination day 37 scholars were presented under the first three standards. Of these 28 passed and 9 failed. There were also 32 passes in plain needlework. The sum paid to the school amounted to $57.60. The school is solely for Chinese girls. The average age is 10, the extremes being 7 and 16. The school is well conducted, well superintended and well taught. The education given is solely in the Chinese language, a fact to which undue prominence cannot be given. Hitherto, the educating of Chinese girls in English has been one of the most disastrous experiments which the Colony has ever witnessed. 24. The Victoria Boys' School is under the. Management of the Honourable P. RYRIE. The number enrolled in 1873 was 28; but, as the average daily attendance, for the last six months, during which the school came under the provisions of the scheme, did not amount to the minimum of 20, the school was not examined. During the present year, the numbers have increased, and the school will no doubt be able to qualify itself for a grant. It was only opened in 1873, and being at present self-supporting, it has been much hampered in many ways, the fees being insufficient to provide a large school-room in a central locality. It is attended principally by Portuguese, but it is open to

  all who choose to avail themselves of it. The education given is solely an English one; and, judging from the results of several inspections, the school is well taught and well conducted.

    25. Adding the numbers taught at these six schools to the numbers taught in the Government schools, the total number of scholars subject to Government inspection in 1873 was 2280. This, with an allowance of 1220 for the numbers attending all other schools, would bring the number of school children in the Colony up to 3500 This is very far short of the number who should be at school; but comparing the results with those of previous years, there is much cause for satisfaction and great encouragement to perseverance.

    26. One point alone now remains to be noticed. When the Grant-in-aid scheme was proposed, great difficulty was felt in applying it to Chinese schools, from the want of a graduated series of school books containing lessons on the model of those in use in the West. A committee was appointed by the Government to compile such a series, and two school books are nearly ready for publication. The remainder will in all probability be finished within the next twelve months. The use of these books will be entirely optional. As long as a school can impart the requisite amount of secular instruction it will be free to use any school books its manager may choose to select; but there can be little doubt that, if the undertaking is at all successful, the new series will ultimately find its way into all the Chinese schools in the Colony, with perhaps a very few exceptions. It will supply a want which is very much felt by all who have the conduct of native schools.

Regulations made by His Excellency the Governor in Council, in pursuance of Section IV of

Ordinance No. 8 of 1869, for the granting of Police Pensions.

      I. The following Regulations apply to all Inspectors, Sergeants, Sergeant Interpreters, and Constables of the Police Force who have joined since 24th September, 1869; excepting those who have enlisted under special agreement.

      II. Subject to the exceptions and provisions hereinafter contained, a Pension will be granted to any Member of the Force, who has served ten years, at the rate of 15/60ths of the Annual pay of his rank, provided he shall have been in receipt of the same for at least three years; otherwise, the Pension shall be calculated upon the average amount of pay received by such person during the three years next preceding the commencement of such Pension. Further, for every full and complete year's service after ten years, an addition to the Annual Pension of 1/60th part shall be made for each additional year of such service.

III. All Pensions granted shall be payable in Hongkong or London, or in the principal towns of British India.

IV. Full Pensions will be granted only on the Candidates' conduct having been uniformly good. V. Should the Candidate's conduct not have been uniformly good, a modified Pension, or Superannuation Allowance will be granted. Should his conduct have been decidedly bad, no Pension or Superannuation Allowance will be paid.

      VI. A Superannuation Allowance in lieu of a Pension calculated at five times the amount of the Annual Pension may be granted if the applicant will be unable to draw his Pension at any of the places before mentioned, or on the application of the Grantee, at the discretion of His Excellency The Governor.

      VII. If any person receiving a Pension under these Regulations should be appointed to fill any Office in any Public Department, such Pension shall cease to be paid for any period subsequent to such appointment if the annual amount of the profits of the Office to which he shall be appointed shall be equal to those of the Office formerly held by him; and in case it shall not be equal to those of his former Office, then no more of such Pension shall be paid to him than what with the Salary of his new appointment shall be equal to the profits of his former Office.

VIII. A Pension, or Retiring Allowance is granted only upon the condition that it becomes forfeited, and may be withdrawn by His Excellency the Governor, in any of the following cases:-

(a.) On the conviction of the Grantee for any indictable Offence.

(b.) On his knowingly associating with thieves or suspected persons.

(c.) On his refusing to give information and assistance to the Police whenever in his power, for the detection and apprehension of Criminals, and for the suppression of any disturbance of the public peace.

If he enter into or continue to carry on any business, occupation, or employment which shall be, in the opinion of His Excellency the Governor, disgraceful itself or injurious to the Public, or in which he shall make use of the fact of his former employment in the Police in a manner which His Excellency the Governor considers to be discreditable and improper.

SIR, I have the honor to forward to you, for submission to the view of His Excellency the Governor, the Report of the Fire Brigade for the months of January and February last.

A Parade and Inspection of the Volunteer and Government_Brigades took place on the 16th January. The assembly was at the Cross Roads, and thence the Engines were taken to the Praya and worked from the sea. The Steam Engine of the "Hongkong Fire Insurance Company" and the Hand Engines of the "Chinese Associations" were present: all were found to be in excellent order. An Inspection of the Government Brigade Engines, Stores, and Equipment, was made on the 31st January: all were found clean and in order.

A Parade and Inspection of the Volunteer and Government Brigades was held on the 28th February. The Fire Engines, including three of "Chinese Associations," were taken to the Praya and worked from the sea: all were found in good order.

It is deserving of remark, that for three months and-a-half during the cold season, there has been no outbreak of fire in the City of Victoria.

   The following Annual Report of the Hongkong General Post Office for the Year 1873, is published for general information.

By Command,

GENERAL POST OFFICE,

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 19th March, 1874. SIR,-I have the honor to present to His Excellency Governor SIR ARTHUR Edward Kennedy, K.C.M.G., C.B., the Fourteenth Annual Report on the Post Office, being that for the year 1873.

   2. The year 1873 was characterized by a general dullness in Trade, and the Department has not escaped the consequent effect upon its revenue.

3. The events and alterations which are worthy of note are as follows, viz. :-

   4. The arrangement referred to in my last Annual Report, paragraph 5, for sending correspon- dence paid or unpaid between this Office and Austria, and the several Continental States, vi? Trieste, by means of the British Mail Packets has been completed.

   5. The French Mail Packets continue to afford the best means of transmitting Mails to and from the Australian Colonies and New Zealand vi? Point de Galle, from whence they are carried by Packets under contract with the Victorian Government, the Mails for Queensland are however now forwarded vi? Singapore by a line of Steamers through Torres' Straits, under Contract with the Queensland Government.

6. A line of British Mail Contract Packets has been established between Aden and Zanzibar, and thence to the Cape of Good Hope, calling at certain Ports on the Eastern Coast of Africa, and at Natal, which affords a regular means of conveyance of correspondence from Hongkong for the foreign ports on the East African Coast as well as for Natal and the Cape Colony, and by the connecting line, to St. Helena and Ascension also, at a reduced rate of postage.

   7. The correspondence forwarded to London in private ship Mails, vi? Suez and Brindisi, is still inconsiderable, although in one instance, viz., the private ship mail sent by the Steamer Glaucus, which was despatched from Hongkong on the 23rd January, was delivered in London on the 3rd March, the day upon which the Mail despatched from Hongkong by the Contract Packet Sumatra on the same date was delivered in London, and the Ulysses' Mail which was despatched from Hongkong on the 27th May, was delivered in London on the 8th July, the date upon which the Travancore's Mail which was despatched on the 24th of May was delivered; the Travancore however met with an accident. The shortest time in which a private ship Mail from Hongkong, was delivered in London was 40 days, and the longest 58 days. No private ship Mails, were sent from the United Kingdom to China via Brindisi during the year.

8. There has been no instance of a Mail having been lost, such as was reported in the year 1872. The British Contract Packet Madras which left Hongkong on the 1st September with the Mails for Yokohama struck on a sunken rock off Swatow on the following day, and had to put into that Port, and the Bombay was despatched from Hongkong on the evening of the 4th September for Swatow and proceeded to Yokohama, with the Madras's Mails.

9. The question of establishing a Money Order system between Hongkong and China on the one side, and Saigon and Cambogia on the other has been fully considered; but for the reasons set forth in my Report of 30th August, No. 31, it was not deemed expedient to carry the project into effect.

10. The proposition to erect a Post Office at Shanghae in lieu of paying high rent has received consideration, and the Home Government having given at a peppercorn rent, the plot of ground referred to in my Report of the tour of inspection of the Postal Agencies in China and Japan, dated 20th July 1871, No. 43, Mr. BoYCE, the Government Surveyor in charge of Legation and Consular Buildings in China and Japan, stationed at Shanghae, has received instructions to prepare the ne- cessary plans, &c., an arrangement which, as I then shewed, will be more economical than that now existing.

11. The following statement shews a decrease in the Gross Revenue of 1873, as compared with 1872, amounting to $11,961.56; of which $3,969.46 is apportioned to the Imperial Post Office and $7,992.10 to the Colonial Government.

  28. The following returns shew that the average time occupied in conveying the Mails from Home has been about the same in 1873 as it was in 1872, by the British Packets, and that by the French Packets the average time with the Mails from Home, was a little more in 1873 than it was in 1872. The shortest time in which a Mail was delivered in Hongkong from London by British Packet via Brindisi last year was 37 days, and the shortest time in which a Mail was delivered in Hongkong by French Packet vid Marseilles last year was 38 days. As regards the Homeward Mails, two Mails sent from Hongkong by French Packet vid Marseilles were delivered in London in 35 days, and three in 36 days, whilst by the British Packets via Brindisi the quickest time occupied was 39 days on four occasions.

I have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

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.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 25th March, 1874.

FINDING OF THE COURT.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

First. We find that the British Steam-ship Sunfoo, Official Number 65,572, of London,-Master JAMES MCKENZIE, number of whose Certificate of Competency is 2,840,-was totally lost on Reef Island, about 27 Miles S.S.W. of Hongkong, at 7.40 P.M. of the tenth day of March, 1874, 'whilst on a voyage from Singapore to Hongkong.

·Second.--We find that the Ship was carefully navigated up to about 6.30 P.M. of the tenth instant, when she met with foggy weather. We are of opinion, that, when thick weather and the night had set in, the Ship's head should have been put off the land; or she should have been anchored; and, it is owing to the non-adoption of either of these courses that the Ship was lost.

Third. We find that the use of the lead was neglected.

     After due consideration of the above finding, we hereby direct that the Certificate of Competency of JAMES MCKENZIE, No. 2,840, be suspended for three months.

     We are of opinion that the measures taken by the Master and Officers subsequent to the wreck, reflect great credit on them.

Given under our Hands at Hongkong, this Twentieth day of March, 1874.

No. 53.

     The following Report of the Marine Court of Inquiry into the loss of the British Steamer Sunfoo, Official Number 65,572, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 25th March, 1874.

FINDING OF THE COURT.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

First. We find that the British Steam-ship Sunfoo, Official Number 65,572, of London,-Master JAMES MCKENZIE, number of whose Certificate of Competency is 2,840,-was totally lost on Reef Island, about 27 Miles S.S.W. of Hongkong, at 7.40 P.M. of the tenth day of March, 1874, 'whilst on a voyage from Singapore to Hongkong.

·Second.--We find that the Ship was carefully navigated up to about 6.30 P.M. of the tenth instant, when she met with foggy weather. We are of opinion, that, when thick weather and the night had set in, the Ship's head should have been put off the land; or she should have been anchored; and, it is owing to the non-adoption of either of these courses that the Ship was lost.

Third. We find that the use of the lead was neglected.

     After due consideration of the above finding, we hereby direct that the Certificate of Competency of JAMES MCKENZIE, No. 2,840, be suspended for three months.

     We are of opinion that the measures taken by the Master and Officers subsequent to the wreck, reflect great credit on them.

Given under our Hands at Hongkong, this Twentieth day of March, 1874.

SHIPPING.

???

1. There is a decrease in the number of vessels arriving at this Port during the year caused by the general stagnation of trade which seems to have prevailed almost everywhere, and Hongkong can scarcely expect to be freed from its effects.

2. Under the heading of Shipping, the Junk trade is not considered, each class being of sufficient importance to be separately treated. It will therefore be seen that, deducting native craft from the totals of all vessels, there is a decrease as compared with 1872 of 2.31 per cent in the number of vessels and of 7.17 per cent in tonnage on the arrivals in 1872. The decrease is not so great as would be expected, if we only judge by the few vessels which are now lying in the harbor in comparison with the number which used to be seen there in former years. The paucity of vessels now would lead many people to suppose that the trade of the place was dying out. But this is not so. Steam- ships have superseded sailing vessels to such an extent that more constant action is necessitated than used to obtain in former years when sailing vessels arrived, discharged their cargo and crews, and were content to wait in a port where no dues were charged until something worth having turned up either here or elsewhere.

     3. The old state of things has entirely changed, and competition, so valuable to the general good, is inciting ship-owners and merchants to procure vessels with high rates of speed, good carrying capacity, and moderate expenditure of fuel.

4. Of the 2,327 foreign vessels arrived during the year, 67.8 per cent are propelled by steam power; and 32.2 per cent are sailing vessels, exhibiting a large disproportion of the latter as com- pared with the carrying trade in this class of vessels in former years. The carrying capacity of the 1,579 steamers is thus divided amongst the various nationalities, 76.64 per cent of tonnage is British; 10.54 per cent French; 6.65 per cent American; 2.91 per cent German; and 1.25 per cent Spanish. The remaining 2.01 per cent is made up of vessels of other nationalities, amongst whom the Chinese are beginning to lay claim to a share of the foreign trade of the Colony.

5. In the returns for the year, the vessels trading with Saigon and ports to the Southward are now entered under the head of Cochin China instead of entering them as formerly under the erroneous heading of Coast of China; so that although the Coast of China trade shows a large decrease, it is not so great as at first sight appears.

6. The same remark applies to a change that has been made with regard to the steamers of the Messageries Maritimes. They have hitherto been returned under India and Singapore but are now transferred to Continent of Europe, that being the place of original departure, instead of Singapore which was merely a port of call. The vessels belonging to the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company whose original port of starting is England are returned as coming from there, although they take in Indian cargoes en route to China which do not appear.

7. Notwithstanding that the number of vessels from Great Britain is 49 less than arrived in 1872, the decrease in carrying capacity is only 9,180 tons, showing the much larger class of vessel employed in the trade between the two places.

8. The lighthouses in course of erection at Cape d'Aguilar, Cape Collinson and Green Island will be completed, and the lights in full operation, before the close of 1874.

                                             This will be a great boon to Captains of ships who now frequently have to lie off during the night for the want of well defined marks to show them their position.

JUNK TRADE.

      9. The Junk trade has shared the same fate as has the trade in foreign bottoms, but it is surprising that the trade keeps up at all seeing the manner in which the Chinese Authorities stationed at the outlets of the port harass the trader. As this question is the subject of enquiry by a Com- mission, I advert to it but slightly in this Report.

10. The decrease in the Junk trade with Macao and the Ports to the North-eastward, amounts to 82,212 tons, of which 42 per cent is with the former port and 58 per cent with the Coast ports.

11. The accompanying Diagram will show that the Junk trade for 1873 is about on a par with what it was in 1871. I trust it may fall no lower, but strong measures are being adopted by the Cantonese with a view to withdrawing it from the Colony.

EMIGRATION.

12. Emigration on the whole to Countries other than China has increased by 1,047 persons. In the early part of 1873, there was a large demand for labour in California and several steamers in addition to those of the Pacific Mail line were laid on to meet this.

13. It is to be regretted that the laws controlling the conveyance of Chinese to the United States from British Possessions are not assimilated. As it is, vessels leave here with their number of passengers as prescribed by the Chinese Passengers' Act of 1855; but on arrival at a port in the United States the vessels are remeasured and if they are found to have more passengers on board than the United States' laws allow, the Masters of the ships are liable to heavy penalties. These difficulties lead to much inconvenience which by an assimilation of laws might be avoided.

14. Much pains have been taken in endeavouring to prevent the export of young females from here who are in many instances sold for improper purposes. With this object in view, girls who have not been sufficiently able to explain their reasons for emigrating have not been permitted to proceed. But it has been found that in several instances vessels going to Singapore and other places, without coming within the meaning of the Chinese Passengers' Act, have taken twenty of the very class of persons whom this and the Registrar General's Departments have been endeavouring to protect.

15. The Government of the neighbouring Colony of Macao have lately issued stringent orders prohibiting the further Emigration of Chinese from there under contracts of service; and they have also established new Regulations by which none but free Emigrants shall leave Macao, Emigration under Contract to Portuguese Possesions however is permitted, the Government being in a position to overlook the labourers on arrival at their destination.

REGISTRY OF SHIPPING.

16. Twenty-three new vessels have been registered and twenty-five vessels have had their registers cancelled during the year. These, with a few transactions such as Mortgages, &c., is a small amount of work for the whole Registry of Hongkong, China and Japan.

17. With so little work in this branch of the Department it seems strange that it should be found necessary to make Shanghai a port of registry. Instead of the whole of the open ports in China and Japan performing their ship registry through Hongkong; they will under the contemplated change have to perform it through Shanghai, which appears a questionable advantage, seeing how far Canton, Swatow, Amoy and the Japanese ports are from that port.

18. The amount of fees collected under this head for the year is $491.

?

MARINE MAGISTRATE'S COURT.

19. There are fifty-one per cent. fewer cases than appeared in 1872. This is partly due to the shortened period of the stay of ships in port and to the smaller number of vessels arriving; as also in part, to the new system of hard labor introduced into the Gaol.

EXAMINATIONS FOR THE POSTS OF MASTERS AND MATES,

UNDER ORDINANCE No. 17 OF 1860.

 20. Of forty-five applicants under this Ordinance, thirty-six obtained Certificates and nine failed in showing themselves qualified.

MARINE COURTS, UNDER ORDINANCE No. 11 OF 1860.

21. Three of these Courts have been held during the year.

 22. One to enquire into the circumstances attending the casualty to the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company's ship Bokhara, which struck on a sunken and unknown rock in the fairway of vessels navigating the Tathong Channel.

 23. One into the circumstances attending an accident which happened to the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company's ship Madras when off the Southeast end of Namoa Island.

 24. The third enquiry was into the circumstances attending the alleged loss of life on board the Steam-ship Glenlyon while on a voyage from Singapore to Hongkong.

SEAMEN.

25. 6,046 seamen were legally discharged, and 6,154 seamen were shipped during the year.

I have the honor to be,

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.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The following Annual Report of the Colonial Surgeon, with Returns annexed, for the Year 1873, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 2nd April, 1874.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 9th March, 1874. SIR,-I have the honor to forward my Annual Report for the year 1873, concerning the health of the Colony and the working of the different establishments under my supervision,

In making out this Report, which contains the usual Tables compiled from observations made during the past year on the health of the Colony, I must premise that I have to depend in a great measure on information received from others who have kindly assisted me, owing to my late arrival in the Colony; still there are some things on which even my limited experience enables me to speak strongly, and which require little time for any one to see the necessity of reforming.

POLICE.

Table I. shows the admissions and deaths of Police in Hospital during the past year. The health of the Police, all things considered, has been fairly good, and sickness is less in proportion to the strength of the force than last year, though the mortality is greater.

The deaths have been chiefly among the Indian portion of the force and the result, in most cases, of Diarrhoea in men who have suffered much from fever and whose spleens were excessively diseased. The native clothing which they prefer to wear when off duty is quite unsuited to this climate and renders them specially liable to attacks of diseases of the bowels from the effects of cold.

The following Annual Report of the Colonial Surgeon, with Returns annexed, for the Year 1873, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 2nd April, 1874.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 9th March, 1874. SIR,-I have the honor to forward my Annual Report for the year 1873, concerning the health of the Colony and the working of the different establishments under my supervision,

In making out this Report, which contains the usual Tables compiled from observations made during the past year on the health of the Colony, I must premise that I have to depend in a great measure on information received from others who have kindly assisted me, owing to my late arrival in the Colony; still there are some things on which even my limited experience enables me to speak strongly, and which require little time for any one to see the necessity of reforming.

POLICE.

Table I. shows the admissions and deaths of Police in Hospital during the past year. The health of the Police, all things considered, has been fairly good, and sickness is less in proportion to the strength of the force than last year, though the mortality is greater.

The deaths have been chiefly among the Indian portion of the force and the result, in most cases, of Diarrhoea in men who have suffered much from fever and whose spleens were excessively diseased. The native clothing which they prefer to wear when off duty is quite unsuited to this climate and renders them specially liable to attacks of diseases of the bowels from the effects of cold.

  Very few of the Indian recruits come up to the standard required of thirty-six inches girth of chest, indeed most of them are very considerably below that, more attention seems to be paid to length than breadth the result is long weedy looking men wanting in muscular development and activity. It would also be better, I think, that Indians should arrive here at the beginning of or in the hot season than in the cold, which is more variable and severe than they are accustomed to.

  Table II. shows the strength of the force as compared with the sickness and mortality. The principal cause of admissions was Diarrhoea, Simple Continued Fever, a few severe cases of Remittent Fever, and Chest Diseases.

TROOPS.

  Table III. gives the strength, sickness and mortality of the Troops in Hongkong in 1873. The rate of sickness and the mortality have greatly diminished when compared with 1872.

GOVERNMENT CIVIL HOSPITAL.

  The present building with all possible care cannot last many years longer, the floors are at present a long way off what those of a Hospital should be and the building is not worth the repairs it requires, all this setting aside the unsuitableness of the building for a Hospital at all, for which it was never designed.

  That things are no worse than they are is due to the able supervision, activity and care of its Superintendent, Dr. WHARRY, of whose knowledge and performance of his arduous duties, I can speak with great pleasure. The Hospital Subordinates too deserve praise and I do not think their value in

   some cases is sufficiently well understood. One of the European Wardmasters has hardly been in the post a year the other just appointed. It is greatly to be desired in the interest of the Institution that there should be as few changes as possible in these posts, it is impossible to get men that are trained without going to great expense in bringing them out from home and it takes more than months to train them. Any one who has suffered from sickness and injury will readily understand the difference between the cool and gentle firmness of the handling of a trained nurse and the nervous and clumsy roughness of an inexperienced one which habit alone can overcome, and it is for this and an hundred reasons as little change as possible should be made among this class of employ?s. Their duties are not only arduous and trying to the nerves, but they often confine the Wardmaster to the building for days together and this under their employment by no means agreeable to them, it is therefore greatly to be desired that their services should be thoroughly well understood and ap- preciated. In especial I may mention with praise the services of the Chinese Wardmaster, A Lok, a servant of nearly ten years standing, quiet and well behaved, a very good Interpreter, a skilful dresser and of great assistance in the post mortem room; he deserves encouragement.

     I do not hesitate to say that, in my opinion, the pay of the Wardmasters is too low when the climate, the confinement to the Hospital, the comparison of the pay in England of men holding similar situations and also of men of similar grade in other employs here is taken into consideration. The European Wardmasters are very much worse off in the duties they have to perform than Inspectors of Police, their posts are quite as responsible, for ignorance or carelessness on their parts, means death or injury to patients and therefere they should not be worse paid.

     The number of the admissions to the Hospital has somewhat increased during the last half of the year owing to the closing of the Seamen's Hospital, but this increase has not been so great as might have been anticipated, partly owing to the number of seamen in port being fewer and perhaps also partly to the general health being better than in the last few years.

     Nine hundred and fifty-two persons were admitted during the last twelve months; of these, fourteen were in a dying condition from injury or previous sickness and only survived a few hours.

     Of the nine hundred and thirty-eight treated, it will be seen from Table IV, that one hundred and twenty-five were venerial cases, deducting these and. the Police admissions from the total, a remainder of four hundred and four is left to represent the number of sick seamen, destitutes, and paying patients admitted.

     The principal diseases for which patients were admitted, according to Table IV, are Simple, Con- tinued and Intermittent Fevers, Diarrhoea, and Diseases of the Chest.

     In July, during ten days of continued drought, no wind, and a maximum temperature in the sun of 131°, three fatal cases of Remittent Fever occurred, all of them dying within three days of ad- mission apparently utterly prostrated from the outset of the disease. In August and September, during the prevalence of Cholera in the Siamese ports and Straits Settlements, three fatal cases of Choleraic Diarrhoea occurred, two were Indian Constables and one a colored seaman.

+

A number of cases of Low Continued Fever, some resembling Typhus others having many of the characteristics of Typhoid Fever, were admitted from the brothels, all were without a doubt.en- gendered by the bad sanitary condition of the houses. This I have already made a subject of special Report and with improved condition of these houses and those of the lower classes, there would be unquestionably a considerable diminution of this class of cases. But that this type of disease is gradually assuming a severer form and steadily and surely increasing in Hongkong there is no doubt, as is shown on inspection of. the Tables of previous Annual Reports; this most decidedly indicates a necessity of improvement in the drainage of the town and of regulations concerning the sanitary condition of the houses of the lower classes whose filthy habits are well known, or in future years these plagues will be endemic in the Colony, and probably end in an epidemic of unenviable renown. The mortality notwithstanding the increase in the number of admissions is considerably less. than that of the preceding year. This is a great matter of congratulation considering the general mixture of diseases in the Hospital, which the limited space and peculiar design of the building render unavoidable.

The treatment of diseases of the respiratory organs is especially unsatisfactory, owing to the defective accommodation, and many of the cases admitted are both aggravated and prolonged on that

account.

A number of this class of cases occur every year among the Police, and it is not surprising that complaints should arise on this head. The Seamen too contrast their present accommodation with what they were accustomed to at East Point and not to the advantage of the Civil Hospital.

In November, ten men were addmitted from the American Ship Meron, all suffering from Scurvy, the disease in some having reached an advanced stage. This was, I believe, made a matter of enquiry by the American Consul.

No deaths from Small Pox occurred among Europeans in the Colony, and only a few cases were reported among Chinese at the beginning of the year, none in the latter months.

A number of the Chinese male and female have voluntarily applied for advice at the Civil Hospital and some have come for operation.

The number of dead bodies brought to the Hospital for examination during the twelve months was one hundred and thirty-one, eight of them were Europeans and one a Colored person.

158

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 4TH APRIL, 1874.

 The amount received during the year as shown in the Hospital books on account of paying patients is $2,440.08 as compared with the $929.57, received the preceding year. This does not include the Seamen sent by the Harbor Master, whose expenses are paid directly into the Treasury by him and not through the Hospital, nor does it include, Police ?xpenses.

 I would here remark that I think that the Seamen belonging to the naval services of other Governments should not be charged $1 per diem, the nominal charge made for Seamen belonging to the merchant services, but that their Governments should defray their actual cost. One dollar does not in many cases defray the cost of diet, including that of wines, spirits, &c., &c.

SEAMEN'S HOSPITAL.

 Table VI. gives the diseases and the mortality and number of admissions into this Hospital during the first four months of the year that it was open. The admissions were seventy-two, the deaths four, two from disease of the heart, one from accident, and one from frost bite.

TUNG-WA HOSPITAL.

HOSPITAL

 This Institution at present hardly deserves the name of Hospital, in the ordinary acceptation of the word. It does good as a refuge for the destitute natives, and in time when their inveterate dislike to European improvements is overcome, may do much more good than it can now. Though in native hands, it does not appear to me to be greatly esteemed by those for whose use it is intended.

 That this Institution is kept clean, according to Chinese ideas of cleanliness at least, the people well fed and lodged, and a fair amount of vaccination done, is I think nearly all that can be said in its favor as present.

VICTORIA GAOL.

 Table VII. shows the admissions to Hospital, the diseases and deaths. Table VIII. shows the number in the Gaol and the proportion of sickness and mortality among the prisoners during the year 1873.

 Diarrhoea has been the cause of the greatest number of admissions to Hospital, the general health of the prisoners is about the same as the preceding year.

LOCK HOSPITAL.

 This is a fine, roomy, well designed and ventilated building and is perfectly suitable but for one exception, not a single ward has a stove or fire-place in it, and it is painful to see the poor women shivering about in the winter time. Considering in this climate the most robust feel the cold and the effects of the sudden variations of temperature, it is extraordinary to find Hospitals of all places, without grates or stoves. It seems to me wonderful that it has never struck any one that the sick should feel the inclemencies of the weather more than the healthy, or at least as much.

 On reference to the tables, it will be seen that the substantial results of the working of this Institution are good. The number of the admissions is nearly one fourth less than that of the previous year, and the type of disease is less severe as is evidenced by the shorter duration of the stay in Hospital. This is satisfactory as although a certain proportion of the decrease of disease might be attributed to the diminished numbers of seamen entering the port in 1873, compared with 1872, yet there is no doubt that the main cause at work is the constant supervision exercised.

In Table C, it is noteworthy how small a proportion of seamen, naval and mercantile, have suffered, and Table E shows how trifling has been the character of the disease.

 That the disease still exists in severe forms among the Chinese is well seen among the prisoners in the Gaol, and seamen from neighbouring ports. Of twelve men admitted in one day into the Gaol, eleven were syphilitic having hideous scars of buboes, secondary eruptions, &c., and one man had lost his nose and penis from the effects of this disease. The women belonging to the brothels licensed for Chinese are not examined nor are European prostitutes.

 Reference has been made in the part of this Report referring to the Civil Hospital to cases of Fever resembling Typhus and Typhoid coming from the brothels, I have already reported on this matter and on the inefficient supervision that has hitherto been exercised as regards their sanitary arrangements, which have been left entirely to the Inspectors of Brothels who are quite ignorant of and cannot be expected to know what is required.

HEALTH OF THE COLONY.

 Table X. shows the Mortality among European and American Residents in the Colony in 1873, which is much less in proportion than in the previous ten years, and is more than one fifth less than the mortality of last year. I think this may be accounted for in great part by the heaviness of the rainfall which exceeds that of 1872 by nearly thirteen inches, for it is always noticed in India the heavier the rainfall the better the health of the community and vice versa. It certainly must have had a great effect on the drains of Hongkong.

 On looking over the returns of the Registrar General as regards the mortality, I find the largest proportion of deaths is from diseases of the chest both among Europeans and Chinese. With the Europeans, there is very little mortality from Fever which takes the next place with Chinese, after that comes Diarrhoea and Dysentery from which both suffer severely.

SANITATION.

159

Table XI. shows the work done by the Inspectors of Nuisances by which it will be seen that the number of person fined and the number summoned is much greater than usual. The fines and punishments do not seem to me sufficientry deterrent, at any rate they do not prevent the same people from over and over again making their appearance in Court in the same year for keeping pigs in upstair rooms, having their down spouts choked up, throwing filth into the streets, &c., &c.

WEATHER.

    Table XII. gives the Annual Atmospheric Report of 1873, the heat has been greater during the hot season and the cold more severe in the early and latter months than in 1872. The rainfall as already inentioned is greatly in excess.
