THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH JANUARY, 1877.

ANNUAIRE

DES MAR?ES DE LA BASSE COCHINCHINE POUR L'AN 1877.

EXPLICATION.

Les tables suivantes donnent, pour chaque jour de l'ann?e 1877, les heures et les hauteurs des pleines et basses mers ? Can-giou et ? Sa?gon.

Less heures sont exprim?es en temps moyen.

Elles se rapportent aux instants o? l'eau atteint son niveau le plus haut ou le plus bas et non aux instants o? le courant est nul et pr?s de changer. Les renversements du courant sont en retard sur les pleines et basses mers d'un intervalle de temps qui pour Saigon est compris entre 1 heure et 2 heures. Ainsi ? Sa?gon le flot ne commence que 1 heure ou 2 heures apr?s la basse mer et le jusant que 1 heure ou 2 heures apr?s la pleine mer.

Les hauteurs sont exprim?es en d?cim?tres et compt?es ? partir du niveau auquel ont ?t? rapport?es les sondes des cartes. A CAN-GIOU ce niveau est plus ?lev? de quatre d?cim?tres environ que celui des plus basses mers. Les hauteurs affec-

t?es du signe-repr?sentent l'abaissement des basses mers correspondantes audessous du z?ro des cartes.

A SA?GON le niveau de r?duction des sondes est ? peu pr?s le m?me que celui des plus basses mers.

Les hauteurs donn?es pour les mar?es de Sa?gon correspondent ? un ?tat moyen du r?gime du fleuve, dont l'influence irr?guli?re ne saurait ?tre pr?vue. Cette influence affecte principalement les basses mers.

Assez souvent en Cochinchine les pleines mers d'un m?me jour ont lieu toutes les deux le matin ou toutes les deux le soir; on a inscrit alors dans la colonne du matin celle des pleines mers qui se produit le plus t?t, et dans la colonne du soir celle qui se produit le plus tard.

L'initiale S, affectant l'heure d'une pleine mer inscrite dans la colonne du matin, veut dire que cette pleine mer aura lieu le soir du m?me jour, ? l'heure indiqu?e.

L'initiale M, affectant l'heure d'une pleine mer inscrite dans la colonne du soir, veut dire que cette pleine mer aura lieu le matin du m?me jour, ? l'heure indiqu?e.

La m?me remarque s'applique aux basses mers, pour lesquelles, du reste, cette circonstance ne se produit que rarement. Les deux basses mers d'un m?me jour ont des hauteurs in?gales, et il arrive quelquefois que la plus ?lev?e des basses mers atteint presque le m?me niveau que les pleines mers entre lesquelles elle est comprise; dans ce cas, la pr?vision des heures est forc?ment incertaine, et les jours o? cette circonstance est indiqu?e par les tables, il pourra se faire qu'on n'observe en vingt- quatre heures qu'une basse mer et qu'une pleine mer.

Les tableaux des pages 32, 33 et 34 donnent les nombres dont il faut augmenter ou diminuer les heures et les hauteurs de Can-giou ou de Saigon pour avoir les heurs et les hauteurs correspondantes dans les autres lieux de la basse Cochinchine o? il a ?t? fait des observations. Ces tableaux ne contiennent aucune indication concernant les hauteurs des basses mers; on aura une id?e de l'importance relative des basses mers qui se succ?dent en un point quelconque en se reportant aux hauteurs donn?es pour les basses mers correspondantes de Can-giou et de Sa?gon.

La note de la page 35, qui a ?t? ajout?e cette ann?e ? l'annuaire, r?sume les renseignements recueillis en 1874-1875 sur les mar?es du Tong-Kin et fournit des indications pour les pr?dire approximativement.

MAR?ES DU TONG-KIN.

  Dans le golfe du Tong-Kin les mar?es sont diurnes, c'est-?-dire qu'on n'observe en g?n?ral qu'une pleine mer et June basse mer par jour.

L'amplitude de la mar?e d?pend de la d?clinaison de la lune: la plus grande mar?e se produit deux ou trois jou apr?s que la lune a atteint sa plus grande d?clinaison, soit bor?ale, soit australe, puis les mar?es d? oissent avec la d?clinaison, et deux ou trois jours apr?s que la d?clinaison a pass? par z?ro, la mar?e est tr?s-faible, irr?guli?re, dans ce cas on observe quelquefois deux oscillations par jour.-D'apr?s cela, les ?poques des grandes et des faibles mar?es e sont pas dans un rapport simple avec les phases de la lune. Aux solstices (juin, juillet, d?cembre, janvier), les grandes m r?es correspondent aux syzygies; aux ?quinoxes (mars, avril, septembre, octobre), elles correspondent aux quartiers, et ons les autres mois, ? des ?poques interm?diaires entre ces phases.

Les heures des pleines et basses mers sont li?es aux passages de la lune aux m?ridiens sup?rieur et inf?rieur; mais les heures changent suivant que la d?clinaison est bor?ale ou australe. Dans le premier cas, la pleine mer succ?de au passage de la lune au m?ridien sup?rieur, tandis que dans le second cas elle succ?de au passage au m?ridien inf?rieur. Autrement dit, la mar?e change de signe avec la d?clinaison, la pleine mer prenant la place de la basse mer et r?ciproquement. Si l'on tient compte de ce fait qne, lors des nouvelles lunes, la d?clinaison de la lune a le m?me signe que celle du soleil, tandis que lors des pleines lunes les d?clinaisons ont des signes contraires et que de plus, le passage au m?ridien sup?rieur a lieu ? midi pour la nouvelle lune et ? minuit pour la pleine lune, on arrive ? cette cons?quence qui est conforme aux faits:

La pleine mer, les jours de sygyzie, a lieu en ?t? entre midi et minuit, et en hiver entre minuit et midi.

Ces diverses circonstances, que la th?orie explique, se retrouvent dans la mar?e diurne qu'on observe en basse Cochinchine, o? elle se combine avec la mar?e semi-diurne et affecte surtout les hauteurs des basses mers et les heures de pleines mers. Ainsi, en basse Cochinchine, les hauteurs de deux basses mers cons?cutives pr?sentent une diff?rence d'autant plus grande que la d?clinaison de la lune est plus grande, et cette diff?rence s'annule deux ou trois jours apr?s que la d?clinaison a pass? par z?ro; c'est par cons?quent aux basses mers de la basse Cochinchine qu'il faut rapporter les pleines et basses mers du Tong-Kin. Sur le c?te du Delta du Tong-Kin, des ?les Norway ? l'entr?e du Lach-Day, la mar?e arrive ? peu pr?s ? la m?me heure et avec la m?me amplitude aux diverses embouchures et ob?it aux r?gles g?n?rales suivantes:

La pleine mer a lieu cinq heures environ apr?s le passage de la lune au m?ridien sup?rieur quand la d?clinaison est bor?ale, et cinq heures environ apr?s le passage au m?ridien inf?rieur quand la d?clinaison est australe.

Les grandes mar?es rapportent de 3 m?tres ? 3m 6° au-dessus du niveau des plus basses mers; les plus faibles mar?es donnent au-dessus du m?me niveau un accroissement de hauteur qui se maintient entre 1" 5o et 2 m?tres pendant toute la journ?e, en pr?sentant des oscillations irr?guli?res.

On pourra d?duire approximativement les pleines et basses mers, de la c?te du Tong-Kin, des basses mers de Can-Giou, au moyen des indications suivantes applicables particuli?rement aux points voisins de la presqu'?le Do-Son.

HONGKONG, 19th January, 1877.

SIR,--I have the honour to place in your hands, for submission to the view of His Excellency the Governor, the Fire Brigade Report for the Quarter ending 31st December, 1876.

The regular monthly Inspections and Parades were held on the 23rd October, 28th November, and 28th December, respectively, at which were present the Government Steam and Manual Engines and the Manual Engines of the Chinese Associations. They were all examined and found in order, excepting that, on one occasion, a slight repair was needed to one of the Manual Engines. The Fire Ladders, Hose, Implements and general Equipment were also examined and found clean and correct.

During the quarter, the undermentioned Stores were received from England for the use of this Department:-

1 New Steam Boiler and Tubes for No. 1 Steam Engine, 1,000 feet of large size Wrought Canvas Delivery Hose,

2,000 feet of small size Canvas Delivery Hose and Implements, and also general Equipment for the Firemen.

The Engineer made monthly report of the state of the Engines, and tested the Boilers by hydraulic pressure. The "up-take" of the Boiler of No. 1 Engine gave out, and the necessary repairs were promptly made.

A fire occurred at Cross Street, W?n-tsai, on the 31st October last, of which due report was made.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

The regular monthly Inspections and Parades were held on the 23rd October, 28th November, and 28th December, respectively, at which were present the Government Steam and Manual Engines and the Manual Engines of the Chinese Associations. They were all examined and found in order, excepting that, on one occasion, a slight repair was needed to one of the Manual Engines. The Fire Ladders, Hose, Implements and general Equipment were also examined and found clean and correct.

During the quarter, the undermentioned Stores were received from England for the use of this Department:-

1 New Steam Boiler and Tubes for No. 1 Steam Engine, 1,000 feet of large size Wrought Canvas Delivery Hose,

2,000 feet of small size Canvas Delivery Hose and Implements, and also general Equipment for the Firemen.

The Engineer made monthly report of the state of the Engines, and tested the Boilers by hydraulic pressure. The "up-take" of the Boiler of No. 1 Engine gave out, and the necessary repairs were promptly made.

A fire occurred at Cross Street, W?n-tsai, on the 31st October last, of which due report was made.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

?

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable J. GARDINER AUSTIN, C.M.G.,

PRESENT,

THE QUEEN'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

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

NOW THEREFORE, Her Majesty, by virtue of the power vested in Her by the said “Foreign Deserters Act, 1852," and by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, is pleased to order and declare, and it is hereby ordered and declared that from and after the publication hereof in the "London Gazette" Seamen not being slaves, and not being British Subjects, who within Her Majesty's dominions desert from Merchant ships belonging to the Kingdom of Hawaii shall be liable to be apprehended and carried on board their respective ships.

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

  And the Secretaries of State for India in Council, the Home Department, and the Colonies are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.

[No. 16.]

VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 31st January, 1877.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Annual Police Report, Statistics for the Blue Book, and Returns of Crime for the year 1876.

2. Compared with the returns for the year 1875, an increase of 19.43 per cent is shown on all cases reported; an increase exists of 6.45 on Serious Crime, and of 23.86 on Minor Offences.

3. The increase in Serious Crime is caused by 11 more cases of Highway Robbery, and by 121 more cases of Larceny occurring than in 1875. Of the reports of highway robbery, two were false, and in eight cases the property stolen was so small as to average under the value of $4 in each case. On one occasion only was property worth more than $25 stolen, and that case deserves partica- One of them lar comment. Four men conspired together to obtain money from a Chinese Bank. induced the Manager to send a coolie with him with about $500. He took the coolie to Zetland Street, where he was joined by his three confederates, and together they maltreated the coolie; and escaped for the time with $266. The coolie subsequently died on the Mainland from the wounds inflicted. Within a week, full information was received as to the guilty parties, who had, in the mean- while, escaped from the Colony, but owing, to the co-operation of H. B. M.'s Consul at Canton and of the Chinese Authorities, two of the men were shortly afterwards arrested and judged by the Chinese Tribunals.

    4. The increase in Miscellaneous Offiences is caused by the number of persons arrested as Men- dicants and as unlicensed Hawkers.

    5. With regard to the Mendicants, arrangements have been made for the reception by the Chinese Authories of all Lepers sent to Canton. There has consequently been a marked decrease in the number of Mendicants of this class found within the last few months in the Colony. The Government have ordered the erection of some cells near the Police Stables at West Point for the temporary detention of Lepers, and an Ordinance awaits confirmation which authorises the Officer in command of the Police to deport such persons forthwith.

6. The number of unlicensed Hawkers is very large, and they cause a great deal of obstruction. It would be desirable if more Market accommodation could be afforded in the City. The out-villages have, as a rule, so increased in size, that it will be necessary to apply throughout the Colony the law At the same time, I think it would be more convenient if as to the taking out of licences by Hawkers. the licensing of Hawkers (and of Chair Coolies) should be transferred from the Registrar General's to the Police Department. The law, moreover, should be enlarged so as to deal with Marine Hawkers, Hawkers of goods on board ships, and with Barbers and other persons carrying on business in the Streets.

7. The consolidation of the Deportation Ordinances was a work that was much needed; for the punishment for Breach of Conditional Pardon was simply the completion of the original sentence, and when this was done, branded men might live without molestation in the Colony; but now they can be re-deported. During 1876, 49 Chinese prisoners were deported and 28 released from Gaol on Condi- As shown in Table tional Pardons granted, as a rule, on the completion of half the term of sentence.

D., 27 men were arrested for being found in the Colony after having been deported or pardoned con- ditionally.

8. There has been a decrease in the number of Gambling cases, but the law on this point is still, in this Colony, very defective. An Ordinance was passed in 1876 that renewed the lapsed penalties against holding certain lotteries, but no advantage was taken of certain useful clauses that have appeared in Acts of Parliament in Great Britain, notably as to what is sufficient evidence of a house being used for Public Gaming, and what shall be deemed sufficient evidence of Gaming. During the last year, owing to its sudden prohibition by the Canton Authories, the fighting of crickets was carried on to an unprecedented extent, and large sums of money changed hands in betting thereon. It was obvious that neither the law concerning Cruelty to Animals, nor the Vagrant Act, nor the local Gambling Ordinance applied, and an application to the Magistrate for a summons against the householder for keeping a disorderly house was refused. The keepers of these houses, therefore, remained unmolested and unpunished.

   9. In certain cases of Larceny and Highway Robbery it was observed that the crimes had been committed by Chin-Chiu men, who had previously, as a class, enjoyed a reputation for honesty in this Colony. The detection of the offenders was the more difficult, as I was unable to find men who could

                         procure the necessary security. speak that dialect, who were suitable for Police duties and could

   10. Considering the returns for the year as a whole, they may fairly be deemed satisfactory, especially when the developement of the City, and of certain Villages, is considered, as well as the increased facilities that have been afforded for the influx of strangers into the Colony.

POLICE.

11. The general health of the force has been better than in 1875; this is doubtless owing to the Seven deaths occurred, and among these two were unusual comparative coolness of the summer. especially to be regretted. I allude to those of Inspectors DODDS and YOUNGSON; these two Officers joined from the Scottish Police, and throughout their services in the Colony, displayed great trust- worthiness and ability.

12. The European Force has been brought into a state of efficiency by the expenditure of a great deal of money and trouble. But this is likely to be seriously affected by the conclusion, at the present In 1872, forty-five men joined from Scotland, season, of the term of service of several of the men. and in 1873, 20 joined from London. These latter were unfortunately drafted immediately after a disturbance of some importance had taken place in the Metropolitan Police; consequently, soine of the men who joined here were not of so high a standard of character as could have been wished. I enclose a return of the 65 men above alluded to, with remarks as to the cause of certain of them leaving. With reference to those that will remain in the Force after next month, I must state, that their conduct is, as a whole, very satisfactory, and that, if some of them left, it would cause a serious loss to the Colony. In February, 1877, the European Force, which is not large for the requirements of the service, will be eighteen below its proper strength, and it is with grave doubts, that I view the prospect of supplying these vacancies from the resources of the Colony.

  13. I enclose a return of the changes and casualties that took place in the Police Force during 1876; they are within three of the number that occurred in 1875.

14. The Stations are, as a rule, in good order; but I have to repeat certain previous reports, viz., that No. 7 Station, West Point, is far too small for the number of men stationed there. No. 8 Station, Tai-ping-shan, is old and badly ventilated, and should be rebuilt when possible. At the Central Station, more accomodation is urgently wanted, especially as the adjoining bungalows originally purchased for demolition, and for providing this required accommodation, have been condemned as no longer habitable. When funds admit, it would be a great boon to obtain additional rooms for married Europeans by the addition of another story to No. 9 Station, Caine Road.

  15. New Streets are springing up at Yau-ma-Ti, British Kowloon; but the road drainage is very defective, as the drains are on the surface, and give the Village a very dirty appearance, but, I believe, this will soon be remedied. I notice also, that between two streets, one facing the sea, and one parallel to that, there is an alley formed by the backs of the houses; this, I hear, is on private ground, unless therefore the matter is dealt with at once, the difficulty may there, as in Victoria, arise as to whether it is a private road and inaccessible to the Police for general purposes.

  16. The sale of so much land at British Kowloon renders it expedient that a Guard-house should be erected at the North-east corner of the Peninsula, near Ma-Tau-Wai. This matter has been before considered.

No. 39.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

DATION.

The following Hydrographic Notice, received from the Government of India, is published for general information.

By Command,

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 17th February, 1877.

The information contained in this Notice is to be carefully considered, to be noted in the Sailing Directions, and compared with the charts when the ship is navigating the locality to which it refers.

Hydrographic Notice. [No. 4.]

BAY OF BENGAL-COAST OF ORISSA.

The following information is derived from the recent survey of False Point Harbour, and remarks by Navigating Lieutenant G. C. Hammond, R.N., commanding the Indian Government Schooner Constance.*

[All Bearings are Magnetic. Variation 2o 35′ East in 1876.] FALSE POINT HARBOUR.

False Point Light-house, situated in lat 20° 20′ 20′′ N., long. 86° 44′ E., on low wooded ground, is a granite masonry tower of reddish brown colour, with a large white star painted on it, facing south-east, and exhibits, at 125 feet above the level of high-water, a fixed white light (common argand), visible seaward and over the anchorage between the bearings from N.N.E., through north and west, to S. W., and can be seen from a distance of 18 miles.

Note. In the early morning, during the months of January and February, fog banks occasionally rise over the land, which cause the light to appear as if suddenly extinguished.

The outer coast-line is formed by a tongue of land extending from False Point light-house in a north-east direction to a distance of 3 miles, meeting Dowdeswell island (Nurrea banga Nassee), and thence curves to the northward, terminating at Reddie point, which bears N.N.E., 6 miles from the light-house. The principal feature of this coast and Dowdeswell island, which protects the anchorage, is the range of small sand-hillocks, averaging from 6 to 8 feet in height, and covered with grass and scrub.

 Hookey Tollah, on the inner shore of Dowdeswell island, is the name given to the Custom-house Officers' and Harbour Masters' location, the latter being a refuge-house, and the highest in the locality. A conspicuous flagstaff stands about 100 yards W. by S. of it, on the high-water line near the jetty.

 The inner coast-line of the bay, extending from False Point light-house to Bacood creek, embracing what was formerly known as Plowden island, past the entrance to Jumboo river and towards Temple point, is principally formed of mangrove. Thence to the South Broni river the land is low, covered with grass and scrub, with occasional patches of mangrove swamp, fringed with sand, which forms the high-water line.

 Beacons and conspicuous marks.-The beacon on the north part of Dowdeswell island is a wooden tripod,? surmounted by a cage, 23 feet in height, situate 63 miles N.N.E. E., from False Point light-house.

Three-quarters of a mile within Temple point, on the west shore of the bay, is a remarkable tree, the highest in its vicinity and known as Temple tree, with a pole projecting from its top, which bears from Dowdeswell island tripod W. S., distance 4

miles.

At the proposed site of the Jumboo location, which is three-quarters of a mile to the south-west of Temple tree, is a flag- staff bearing W. by S., 43 miles from the tripod.

 About 3 miles N.N.E., from Temple tree, and marking the southern entrance point of the South Broni river, is an upright spar, with topmast and black cage, situate N.W. W., 4 miles from Dowdeswell tripod.

The only mark of importance on the southern shore is Plowden beacon, on the east side of Plowden point, consisting of a pole and cage, painted white, and from Dowdeswell tripod bearing S.S. W. W., 2 miles.

10

Buoys.-Fairway buoy, painted in black and white horizontal stripes, with staff and cage, lies in 4 fathoms at low-water spring tides, with Plowden beacon and False Point light-house in line S. by W. W., Temple tree W. by S. ? S., and Dowdeswell tripod S. by E. 3 E.

Note. It is proposed to shift the Fairway buoy half a mile seaward on the leading mark, and to place a bell buoy off the north extreme of Dowdeswell island, about 3 cables N. by W. W. from the tripod.

Outer buoy, a black can buoy, lies in 13 feet, N.W. W., 7 cables from the tripod, and indicates the western side of the

3 Fairway channel.

A red buoy, with staff, lies close to Reddie point in 20 feet, 3 cables N.W. W. from the tripod, and marks the eastern. side of the channel.

 Four buoys denote the boundary of the inner anchorage: on the western limit are two black buoys, and on the eastern limit, two red buoys; each buoy lies in 12 feet at low-water.

Anchorages. The outer anchorage, for vessels exceeding 18 feet draught and the most convenient for vessels making a short stay, is off the north point of Dowdeswell island in 4 fathoms at low water, mud bottom, with the tripod bearing S. by E. E., and Temple tree about W. by S. This position is outside the tide-rip caused by the wind along the coast meeting the freshets from the numerous creeks in the bay.

From the inner anchorage, 18 feet, green mud, the tripod bears E. by N., and Hookey Tollah flagtaff S.S.E., distant 11 miles. At one mile from this position in the direction of the light-house is a depth of 2 fathoms.

Tides. It is high-water, full and change, at the inner anchorage off Hookey Tollah at IX hrs. 15 min.; ordinary springs rise 7 feet, neaps 4 feet. The range of tide, however, is much affected by the water out of the numerous creeks, and also by the prevailing winds; the best or highest tides occur during the north-east monsoon, the least or lowest tides in the month of May. The tidal streams within the harbour set fairly through the several channels, and at springs average a velocity of 2

knots an hour.

* See Indian Marine Survey Chart, False Point anchorage, No. 109; also Taylor's Sailing Directory, Vol. 1, page 469.

It is proposed to exhibit a small harbour light from a wooden structure at the tip of Reddie point, N.W. by N. of the tripod.

THE HONGKong governMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1877.

79

At half a mile outside and eastward of Reddie point, the flood stream sets to north, at the Fairway buoy to north-west, whilst midway between the buoy and Reddie point it sets to W.S.W. Great attention, therefore, is necessary in entering the port on a flood tide.

In the offing the flood sets to north-east, the ebb to south-west, at a rate of about one knot per hour; but the velocity is much influenced by the prevailing wind, so that the flood stream in the south-west monsoon attains sometimes a speed of 4 knots.

    Supplies, Trade, &c.-Inferior water can be procured at Hookey Tollah, free of expense, by using the vessels' boats, and good water at Marsaghai, situated about 30 miles up the Bacood creek.

Provisions are scarce and expensive; sheep, vegetables, &c., can be obtained from Cuttack, and from villages within a

Firewood is plentiful and cheap. radius of 20 miles.

False Point is the port of Cuttack and the Orissa district: the imports are principally Birmingham and Manchester goods; exports, rice and various seeds.

Directions.-Vessels bound to False Point outer anchorage in the south-west monsoon, on approaching the light-house, should not shoal into less than 10 fathoms. When the light-house bears N. W. distant 4 miles, in soundings of 10 fathoms, olive mud bottom, alter course to N.N.E. for about 7 miles, or until the tripod on Dowdeswell island bears N.W. W. Thence a N.W. N. course for about 3 miles will place a vessel in about 7 fathoms mud, one mile off shore, with Dowdeswell tripod bearing west. Haul in gradually until Temple tree, the Jamboo location buildings and flagstaff, on the west shore of the bay, are well opened to the northward of Dowdeswell island, and anchor as convenient.

If proceeding to the inner anchorage, round Reddie point at about 2 cables distance, taking care to guard against an eddy, extending from the pitch of the point to the 3-fathom line, and steer up the harbour with Plowden beacon and False Point light-house in line, bearing S. by W. W., to the required anchorage.

    Commander Taylor observes that with a strong flood-stream (which will reveal itself by drifting a vessel rapidly to the northward), it will be found best to steer in on a southerly course, bringing the vessel's head to east and north-eastward, through the S.E. quadrant, so as to breast the tide before anchoring. Instances have occurred of steamers steering in towards Reddie point, and attempting to turn to starboard, or through south-west and north-west, on the flood-tide; thus they were rapidly swept across (see tides) the channel to the westward, and grounded in the shoal water extending from Temple point.

From abreast Hookey Tollah, where a flat or receiving hulk is moored, boat channels, winding through mud banks and partially buoyed, lead to the Bacood and Jumboo creeks. There is also a channel, available for boats, through mud flats and imangrove, leading to False Point light-house; the banks on either side being marked by bamboos.

The channel to Jumboo is the deepest, and at high-water is navigable for vessels of 10 feet draught. The Bacood channel, although shallower than the Jumboo, is at present the highway to Cuttack. In navigating these channels, it is recommended that the services of a local pilot should be obtained, as they alter from time to time, consequent on the large quantities of detritus and silt brought down in solution from the upper portion of the Mahanuddy, necessitating frequent changes in the position of the buoys and bamboos denoting the fairway.

Marine Survey Department, Calcutta, 29th December, 1876.

It is recommended that this beacon, being small, should be replaced by a larger one.

THE HONGKong governMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1877.

At half a mile outside and eastward of Reddie point, the flood stream sets to north, at the Fairway buoy to north-west, whilst midway between the buoy and Reddie point it sets to W.S.W. Great attention, therefore, is necessary in entering the port on a flood tide.

In the offing the flood sets to north-east, the ebb to south-west, at a rate of about one knot per hour; but the velocity is much influenced by the prevailing wind, so that the flood stream in the south-west monsoon attains sometimes a speed of 4 knots.

    Supplies, Trade, &c.-Inferior water can be procured at Hookey Tollah, free of expense, by using the vessels' boats, and good water at Marsaghai, situated about 30 miles up the Bacood creek.

Provisions are scarce and expensive; sheep, vegetables, &c., can be obtained from Cuttack, and from villages within a

Firewood is plentiful and cheap. radius of 20 miles.

False Point is the port of Cuttack and the Orissa district: the imports are principally Birmingham and Manchester goods; exports, rice and various seeds.

Directions.-Vessels bound to False Point outer anchorage in the south-west monsoon, on approaching the light-house, should not shoal into less than 10 fathoms. When the light-house bears N. W. distant 4 miles, in soundings of 10 fathoms, olive mud bottom, alter course to N.N.E. for about 7 miles, or until the tripod on Dowdeswell island bears N.W. W. Thence a N.W. N. course for about 3 miles will place a vessel in about 7 fathoms mud, one mile off shore, with Dowdeswell tripod bearing west. Haul in gradually until Temple tree, the Jamboo location buildings and flagstaff, on the west shore of the bay, are well opened to the northward of Dowdeswell island, and anchor as convenient.

If proceeding to the inner anchorage, round Reddie point at about 2 cables distance, taking care to guard against an eddy, extending from the pitch of the point to the 3-fathom line, and steer up the harbour with Plowden beacon and False Point light-house in line, bearing S. by W. W., to the required anchorage.

    Commander Taylor observes that with a strong flood-stream (which will reveal itself by drifting a vessel rapidly to the northward), it will be found best to steer in on a southerly course, bringing the vessel's head to east and north-eastward, through the S.E. quadrant, so as to breast the tide before anchoring. Instances have occurred of steamers steering in towards Reddie point, and attempting to turn to starboard, or through south-west and north-west, on the flood-tide; thus they were rapidly swept across (see tides) the channel to the westward, and grounded in the shoal water extending from Temple point.

From abreast Hookey Tollah, where a flat or receiving hulk is moored, boat channels, winding through mud banks and partially buoyed, lead to the Bacood and Jumboo creeks. There is also a channel, available for boats, through mud flats and imangrove, leading to False Point light-house; the banks on either side being marked by bamboos.

The channel to Jumboo is the deepest, and at high-water is navigable for vessels of 10 feet draught. The Bacood channel, although shallower than the Jumboo, is at present the highway to Cuttack. In navigating these channels, it is recommended that the services of a local pilot should be obtained, as they alter from time to time, consequent on the large quantities of detritus and silt brought down in solution from the upper portion of the Mahanuddy, necessitating frequent changes in the position of the buoys and bamboos denoting the fairway.

Marine Survey Department, Calcutta, 29th December, 1876.

It is recommended that this beacon, being small, should be replaced by a larger one.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

     The following Census Returns of the Population of the Colony, for the year 1876, are published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 24th February, 1877.

[ No. 6.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 12th February, 1877.

SIR,—I have the honour to enclose the returns of the Census which was taken on the night of the 4th December last in accordance with the directions of His Excellency the Governor contained in C. S. O. 1263.

No Census has been taken since 1872, the returns for which are contained in the Government Gazette of the 15th February, 1873.

     As great care has been taken in collecting the information on both occasions, a comparison of the returns may be relied on for giving a correct knowledge of the increase or otherwise of the different items of population in the Colony.

     The whole population in 1872, numbered 121,985, it is now 139,144, showing an increase in four years of 17,159. The major part of this increase is in the Chinese population in Victoria, Kowloon and the Villages.

The European and American Community, is larger by 247, but this is almost solely attributable to the number of Portuguese who have made Hongkong their residence since the partial destruction of Macao by Typhoon and Fire in 1874. Nearly every other nationality shows a decrease, especially amongst male adults. There are now 86 British, 12 German, 12 American and 10 Danish male adult Residents less than in 1872.

All the Villages, with the exception of Stanley, have more or less added to their inhabitants. The Typhoon in 1874 destroyed a large number of houses in the Village of Stanley, and many of these have not been since re-built. Certain projected improvements will, however, it is to be trusted, restore the place to its former thriving state. The fishing Villages, as Aberdeen, Stanley, and Shau-ki W?n may be called, should prosper, as they are now frequented by more than three times the number of fishing boats to what they were four years ago. Late sanitary reforms have done much to improve the condition of the inhabitants in these Villages.

      Yau-ma-ti in Kowloon has become a new Town within the last few months, and it will continue to increase, if facilities are afforded to the boat-builders and to the junk people, who repair thither to careen and repair their vessels, for on these the trade of the place chiefly depends.

     The introduction of Steam Ferries has not had the depressing effect which was expected on the pull-away boats, but the contrary, as they have increased largely in number.

It is satisfactory to notice the addition which has been made to the number of shops, and other buildings, since e last Census.

I beg to en ose certain Returns required for the Annual Blue Book.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable J. GARDINER AUSTIN, C.M.G.,

Colonial Secretary,

HONGKONG.

REPORT OF THE GAOL COMMITTEE.

;

GENERAL REMARKS.

The principles on which the Gaol system in England as well as in the Colonies ought to be carrid on are now so well ascertained, and have received such high sanction, that it only remains to accept them and apply them to each particular Gaol, as far as local circumstances permit.

It is now settled beyond the reach of controversy, that the primary object of punishment is to deter from crime, and that every other idea must be subsidiary to it.

Important as the mental and moral training of criminals may be, and satisfactory as it may be to make a prison self-supporting by employing prisoners in remunerative labour, these objects must be considered of secondary importance, and must be put aside if they have the effect of rendering punishments lighter, and therefore more tolerable and less deterrent.

Owing to the peculiar circumstances of this Colony, and the fact that by far the larger proportion of the criminals confined in the Gaol are Chinese, whose language is but little known to those who have charge of them, whose characters and dispositions are imperfectly understood, and of whose previous history and lives it is almost impossible to obtain any knowledge, any attempt to cultivate their higher faculties and to improve their moral condition seems hopeless.

The European prisoners undergoing long sentences are very few, the larger portion by far are soldiers and sailors imprisoned under what may be termed moderate sentences for breaches of Military and Naval discipline, and there is not time enough to give room for hope that permanent impressions can be produced by teaching and moral discipline.

The only resource is to make the life of prisoners in Gaol, and of Chinese prisoners especially, as distasteful as it can possibly be made, consistently with reason and humanity, by hard labour, hard fare, and strict physical discipline. In the course of their investigation, the Committee have formed the opinion, that Chinese prisoners on long sentences have been fed on a scale of diet which must be a positive inducement to the majority of them to return to Gaol, so superior is it, both in quantity and quality, to the fare which the free labourer earning honest wages can command.

As to European prisoners, the majority of the Committee are of opinion, that the dietary has been too high in some respects.

In this opinion Mr. TONNOCHY, who has had great experience in the results of the management of the Gaol, does not concur, and it is right to state that the Medical Officer agrees with him.

In the suggestions drawn up for the use of His Excellency the Governor in Council, which follow, the Committee have tried to remedy serious faults in the system, and have sought to discover what is the minimum of daily food on which a prisoner can perform the maximum of daily labour.

The recommendations made by the Committee, after very careful enquiry, might, it is suggested, be tried experimentally, under the close supervision of the Medical Officer and the Visiting Justices, before they are finally adopted.

GAOL REGULATIONS.

The code of Gaol laws now in force consists of the Gaol Ordinance, No. 4 of 1863, the Penal Servitude Ordinance, No. 10 of 1858, and the involved and confused body of Regulations drawn up as long ago as 1857, and amended and altered by Orders of various Governors.

These Ordinances and the Regulations are in many points contradictory.

The Committee have revised and drawn up the Regulations anew, preserving as much of the old materials as seem to be suitable, but re-arranging them under heads of cognate subjects, and incorporating such portions of the Prisons Act of 1865, the Singapore Ordinance recently prepared by the late Mr. BIRCI, and Captain ?NNES, R.E., and of the Rules found in the Appendix to the Lords' Report, as seem likely to be of use in this Colony.

The number of the proposed Regulations is somewhat increased, but principally by sub-division. The Committee have avoided too minute directions which might tend to embarrass an intelligent Superintendent.

7

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1877.

DIETARY.

EUROPEAN PRISONERS.

The diet is abundant in quantity and good in quality.

They have 3 meals a day provided in the form of rations in the proportions set out in the scale.

117

On a previous enquiry, some soldiers described the food they received in Gaol as rather better than what they got in Barracks, or at any rate not worse.

A sailor lately informed one of the present Committee, that the meat supplied to him was better than what he got on board ship.

The quantity of the ration (meat), lh. without bone, becomes, after cooking, about 9 ounces.

This is boiled, stewed, or curried and given with rice. It is more than some prisoners care about consuming at one meal, and, as an indulgence, they are allowed to reserve part for supper.

Recommendation as to Meat Ration.-The majority of the Committee recommend that this ration be reduced to 10 or 11 ounces. (Mr. TONNOCHY dissents, considering the present meat ration not excessive).

VEGETABLES.—The ration is at present 1 lb.

The majority of the Committee think that this should be reduced to 14 ounces. (Mr. TONNOCHY dissents). Recommendation.-The Committee are unanimously of opinion that rice, a most wholesome and nutritious article of diet, would form a part of the regular dietary of Europeans with advantage.

The Medical Officer informed the Committee that many of the prisoners complain of acidity and heartburn. This Dr. AYRES attributes to the tea, which is however of fair quality. The ration is lb.

Recommended.—That cocoa or gruel be allowed 2 or 3 times a week in the place of tea.

That the ration of tea be slightly increased to lb. for convenience in calculating the quantity required. The cost of cocoa or gruel, it is supposed, would be somewhat higher, but in other respects the change seems desirable as variety in food and drink is necessary to health, dyspepsia frequently following too long a continuation of one kind of food, or food cooked in the same way.

SUGAR.-The ration hitherto allowed has been 31 oz. This quantity is quite unreasonable, it is largely in excess of what the prisoners can use.

Recommended.-The Committee unanimously recommend that the quantity be reduced to 2 oz.

General Recommendations.

That the ordinary diet be slightly varied. That fresh fish and suet pudding take the place of meat 2 or 3 times a week. The value of the latter, as an article of prison diet, is mentioned in the Appendix to the Lords' Report, page 93, Note C.

PENAL DIET. EUROPEANS.

This ration, 1 lbs. of bread given in two meals, is as small an allowance as will sustain health.

By an Order of His Excellency the present Governor, dated 3rd September, 1872, prisoners sentenced to 3 months' imprisonment, or more, for the first 10 days in each month, up to 6 months, were to be fed on bread and water only.

By an amended Order, this diet is imposed from the 1st to the 5th day and from 16th to the 20th of each month. In the case of prisoners sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment only, the diet for the whole period is bread and water. This diet affects the weight and strength, but not the health of prisoners, according to the Medical Officer's statement, when not carried out for longer periods than directed in the Order referred to.

Sometimes, when prisoners fall off in weight, it has been the practice to add gruel to the penal diet, or in cases where the decrease of weight is great and rapid, extra rations are ordered, or the prisoners are put back to full rations. The Committee cannot but think that too much importance has been attached to a decrease in weight, which is by no means a perfect test of insufficiency of diet, as is pointed out in the Lords' Report, part 2, Chap. 11, page 76.

Some prisoners, Chinese especially, owing to the suspension of hard labour, actually gain flesh on rice and water as the weight book proves.

The penal diet, as before remarked, cannot be reduced.

The attention of the Committee has been particularly called to the manner in which a bread and water diet given as a punishment for Goal offences conflicts with the bread and water diet given as part of the punishment under the sentence, and their remarks and recommendations on this point will be found in a subsequent part of the report.

Recommendations.-It is sufficient here to state that the Committee strongly recommend that extra rations be more sparingly ordered by the Medical Officer, and that the rule which they have drawn up, that he be directed to enter in his journal the medical reasons for ordering any alteration in the diet of any prisoner, be sanctioned.

The Committee also strongly recommend that prisoners on penal diet be compelled to do every day some amount of moderately hard work. It is the opinion of the majority that they should be compelled to pick a certain amount of oakum, say from 1 lb. to 1 lb. each day.

Ordinary diet for Chinese prisoners, (see Appendix).

RICE.-The Committee are of opinion, that this scale may be reduced with very good effect to 1 lb. 10 oz. The amount of rice allowed, viz. 1 lb. 13 oz., is unnecessarily great, and the consequence is, that a quantity

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1877.

The free labourer on hard work consumes generally 1 lb. of cooked rice, or in the case of very strong men, 11 lbs at one meal, but this is exceptional. (N.B. There has been great difficulty in ascertaining the average meal of free labourer. This amount seems to be a fair estimate as obtained from various persons likely to know).

In the Gaol, each Chinese prisoner is allowed 1 lb. 13 oz. of uncooked rice. The quantity becomes about double or 3 lbs. 10 oz., when boiled.

Part however of each ration is withdrawn to make conjee, which is served at 11 A.M.

Aration of rice thus reduced but partially boiled and therefore not of its full weight, was lately weighed i the presence of a member of the Committee. It weighed 1 lb. 9 oz., that is 1 ounce more than the exceptional mea of the free labourer referred to. To this was added, after it was weighed, 3 large slices of turnip, forming a mos abundant meal.

The conjee is given, by way of refreshment, to such prisoners as like to have it at about 11 o'clock. It consist of rice boiled in a large quantity of water, so as to become something like gruel in consistency. Cabbage and bean are boiled in it, and it seems to be a most nutritious and palatable compound as made in the Gaol.

Free labourers, when engaged in hard work, generally take it early in the morning.

FISH.-Salt fish is supplied 3 days a week. Fresh fish 2 days, this is necessary probably to prevent scurvy. CAYENNE CHUTNEY.-Of this, 1 oz. is supplied. It seems to the Committee to be an unnecessary luxury. VEGETABLES.—These are supplied with rice 2 days a week.

6

TEA.-The quality of this tea is very inferior. It might be improved, and the quantity increased from to l as before recommended in the case of European prisoners.

Chinese prisoners sentenced to 3 years' penal servitude and upwards are allowed 1 lb. of pork per week i addition to the very abundant and generous diet provided by the Gaol Rules. When this unwarrantable luxury wa introduced, the Committee are unable to discover. The Medical Officer is of opinion that pork is a proper and necessary addition to the ample diet already provided.

In this opinion the Committee cannot concur, and recommend that the ration of pork be at once discontinued. Chinese prisoners generally increase in weight, which is not to be wondered at under the circumstances.

The amount of rice supplied is 1 lb. 13 oz.

PENAL DIET.

CHINESE.

The Committee are of opinion that this amount may be considered a sufficient and proper amount; the fact tha it is enough to support a prisoner in health seems to prove that the same amount given with other food is too much in the ordinary diet.

Should the suggested alterations in the dietary of European and Chinese prisoners be carried out, the Committed recommend that the Medical Officer be directed to watch the effect upon the prisoners very carefully, reporting at once to the Colonial Secretary, or His Excellency the Governor, any change he may observe in the health and strength of the prisoners.

FIREWOOD AND SOAP.-The attention of the Committee has been directed to very large quantities of these articles provided daily by way of rations for the prisoners.

The ration of wood is 2 lbs. per head, and of soap lb., or a little more than 1 half oz.

The wood is never issued to the prisoners and the soap only to Europeans.

Supposing an average of 400 prisoners in the Gaol, 800 lbs. of wood is supplied daily. This is far in excess of

of what is required for cooking, and the Gaol clothes are not washed in boiling water.

A large quantity of washing from the Hospital is done in the Gaol, but the wood is sent in from the Hospital with the dirty linen.

Turnkey JONES, who is in charge of the cook-houses, states that for cooking for 400 prisoners, on full diet 560 lbs. would be sufficient. This exact number is never on full rations and even if it were, it is supposed that a smaller quantity would suffice.

Part of the surplus wood has hitherto been used for the Turnkeys' cooking and the residue has been stored. Mr. JONES says that in February 7,000 lbs. were saved and nearly the same amount in March up to the 24th.

SOAP.-The Chinese can hardly be induced to use soap, so that a reduction of the quantity might well be made. Recommendations.-The Committee recommend that the practice of issuing firewood and soap as daily rations be at once discontinued, and that they both be supplied according to a scale to be drawn up. The Committee are of opinion that about one half the quantity would suffice.

It cannot be difficult to ascertain with tolerable accuracy the quantity of wood required to cook provisions for a certain number of people, and that quantity should be procured daily.

WOMEN'S DIET.

There can be no doubt that the dietary for women is excessive. They have the full ordinary diet of a male prisoner.

Recommendation.--That it be reduced at least by one quarter.

HOSPITAL DIET.

This is half of the full ordinary diet, and seems sufficient. It must be, of course, very much under the control of the Medical Officer.

DEBTORS AND FIRST CLASS MISDEMEANANTS, &c.,-DIET.

Recommendation. For this class, and for persons confined for want of sureties not being dangerous to the peace and good order of the Celony, who cannot provide their own food, the Committee recommend that the diet be somewhat improved.

PUNISHMENTS.

Istly. Under sentences from the Supreme Court and the Magistracy.

2ndly. For breaches of Gaol Regulations.

These consist of:-1stly,

1. Shot-drill with 32 lb., 24 lb., and 18 lb. shot.

2. The crank.

3. Oakum-picking with stone-carrying as an alternative punishment..

4. Stone-breaking and dressing.

119

  Of these different forms of punishment the "Shot-drill" and the "Crank" can only be considered as strictly penal, and these with the "Treadmill" are reported by the Lords' Committee of 1867-68 as the most deterrent in England. The latter is not at present in use in this Colony.

  According to the opinions of those who have had most experience of the effects of punishments in the Gaol of this Colony, to European prisoners "Shot-drill" is the most irksome, whilst to Chinese prisoners "Oakum-picking" is far more laborious and disagreeable.

The reasons assigned for this difference in taste are perfectly intelligible.

  The European prisoners are generally soldiers or sailors, and the latter form the largest proportion. Accustomed to handle rope, their fingers by habit have acquired dexterity in unwinding the strands. They are allowed also to use a sort of hook called a "jigger," which enables them more easily to open the junk and lightens the task very much.

Recommendation.-This "jigger" the Committee recommend should be taken away.

  The Chinese prisoners have all their lives been used to hard work and especially to lifting heavy weights, and the mechanical nature of "Shot-drill" requiring no thought beyond mere listening to the word of command is better suited to their more indolent natures, than "Oakum-picking," a task which demands close attention in untwisting the fibres.

The hours of "Shot-drill" are 4 for Chinese and 3 for European prisoners each day. Mr. GREY thinks that Chinese prisoners care very little for "Shot-drill."

Recommendation.-The Committee do not see any reason for recommending that the hours of "Shot-drill" be

lessened.

  CRANK. This form of punishment was introduced by Sir R. G. MACDONNELL in 1868. Twelve were imported, but no directions as to their proper use have ever been obtained, and none of the Officers of the Gaol have had much experience in their employment as a means of punishment. (Two only are now in use). Prisoners are put to them when the Medical Officer reports to be unfit for "Shot-drill."

  The price of a "Crank" in England is ?12. The Surveyor General thinks that they could be made quite as well in this Colony for a smaller sum. · Mr. TOMLIN thinks that work as hard can be found at a saving of the expense of providing more cranks, and is of opinion that they should be reserved for offences against the Gaol Rules only. He objects too that one inevitable consequence of the use of many "Cranks" would be that the air inside the Gaol would be polluted, as the men employed on the cranks are obliged to use a "bucket" instead of the latrine in the yard in relieving the wants of nature.

  The Committee are of opinion that this difficulty may be easily overcome and is a fault of administration principally. The fact that this punishment is undergone in a separate cell must add much to its deterrent effect.

Recommendation. The Committee recommend that the remaining 8 "cranks" be put at once into serviceable order. The propriety of ordering more depends so much upon the form of punishment adopted by His Excellency in Council, that the Committee make no remarks on the subject.

  It will be for His Excellency to consider whether the Acting Superintendent Mr. TOMLIN's suggestion should be adopted that the "Crank" be reserved for offences against Gaol Rules as hereafter mentioned.

  OAKUM-PICKING. This is generally classed amongst the hard labour punishments, but is not strictly penal and is termed in the Lords' Report, page 70, "and intermediate form of work.”

  It has already been pointed out how distasteful it is to Chinese prisoners. The difficulty is to supply a sufficient quantity of junk to keep all the prisoners at work.

  The Superintendent states, that owing to the introduction of wire rigging, and the preponderance of steam over sailing vessels, at times the supply runs very short. For these reasons, fewer hours are occupied with this punishment than in the majority of prisons.

  In combination with other punishment, European prisoners now pick 11?2 lbs., Chinese 1 lb. a day; 3 lbs. would be the amount required to be picked, if the sole punishment, per diem. The Chinese pick it more slowly and often do not pick their quantity in the prescribed time.

Moreover, there is not a good market for Oakum at Victoria, as women and children are employed by some shipchandlers in picking at 14 cents per lb.

  This in itself should form no objection, provided a sufficient supply could be obtained, as it has long been settled that a profitable return from an industrial employment should not be made the test of prison efficiency (Lords' Report, Part 2, page 72). One lot of junk (5 tons) converted into Oakum and sold proved very remunerative. It cost $49 a ton and 2 tons sold for $112.

?

120

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1877.

To supplement "Oakum-picking" and "Stone-breaking," the present Acting Superintendent introduced “St carrying." Stone of the weight of 90 lbs. are carried, hung from a bamboo, by two men. The work is continu and certainly is hard labour, and in the opinion of the Committee well suited for the purpose in view. It is severe than "Shot-drill," or the "Crank," but is harder, though less irksome than "?akum-picking" and "St breaking."

The Committee are of opinion that "Stone-carrying" may be continued with advantage as a substitute for o intermediate forms of labour.

STONE-BREAKING. This is a form of punishment strongly recommended by all persons authorities. It f one of the "intermediate" kinds of labour generally.

Here the granite is so soft and easily broken that the Committee think it doubtful if it be really hard labou The present Regulations assign 1 bushels as a daily task, but the present Superintendent thinks that quantity might be increased to 3 bushels.

The duty of supplying the granite has hitherto fallen upon the Surveyor General's Department and the co charged to it.

110

The Surveyor General complains very strongly of the great expense e 5ng thereby in road repairs, except per

for roads or streets in the immediate neighbourhood of the Gaol.

ice mi

Carring stone to and from the Gaol to any part of the Colony, except e-streets immediately adjoining, cau large outlay. Mr. PRICE says that since the system has been altered, roads can be mended 25 per cent more che Contractors object to take stone broken in the Gaol, as they can get stone broken in site or very nearly so at 75 the cubic yard. Women and children are largely employed in this way in the roads and streets.

al

Recommendation.—The Committee think that if "Stone-breaking" is to be considered a form of punishme useful that it deserves to be retained, any loss should fall on the Gaol Deparent. If, however, owing to the nature of the material, it does not form a punishment of the "intermediate" class, "Stone-carrying" seems t equally or more useful, with the advantage that the prisoners are not armed with such deadly weapons as ham would be in case of an outbreak.

STONE-DRESSING.-This is an employment which requires a certain amount of teaching, and is given to long sentenced prisoners.

The Surveyor General complains that it is costly to his Department for the same reason as stone-breaking this may be remedied in the way before suggested.

It has the advantage of teaching the prisoners employed a sort of skilled labour by which they may e livelihood on the expiration of their sentences.

STONE-POLISHING.-This has been tried to a very small extent. It is doubtful whether it could be made

labour.

The granite of the island is capable of taking a very high degree of polish, and a demand for polished gr or marble, might be created, which would render the labour self paying, if not remunerative.

N.B.——Mr. TONNOCHY objects that this work, riquiring the constant application of water, keeps the pris sitting or standing in wet clothes, and thus is likely to affect their health. The Committee think that this obje might be easily overcome and would recommend this as a useful form of work, provided there are no other re to the contrary.

The 5 forms of labour considered so far alone constitute work to which the epithet "hard" can in any ser applied, 3 being intermediate. The rest are employments to which prisoners under long sentences are put, and be considered together.

They come under the head of "industrial" forms, and are valuable as teaching a trade, or kind of work, will enable a man to maintain himself on leaving Gaol.

It is unnecessary to describe them.

The Committee, however, desire to call the attention of His Excellency, especially to No. 11 ("Serv Under this heading, the employment of long sentenced prisoners in the service of the Officers of the Gaol About 15 in all are so employed. Some of the prisoners are employed in cooking for the Turnkeys. The kit are situated outside the immediate precincts of the Gaol near the entrance gate, through which coolies and persons bringing necessaries, or having business in the Gaol pass constantly, so that communication with the o may be, and no doubt is easily carried on, and articles forbidden by the rules introduced.

Recommendation.—The Committee strongly recommend that all this should cease. That the prisoners never be allowed to pass the prison gates by the Office yard, and that a sufficient number of servants shou employed to attend on the Cfficers.

CLERICAL LABOUR.---One prisoner is employed in the Office and keeps all the books under the direction Superintendent and Warden. The sentence of the prisoner now so employed, it is understood, will shortly exp

2ND CLASS PUNISHMENTS.

PUNISHMENTS FOR BREACHES OF GAOL RULES.-These punishments are inflicted under the authority Gaol Ordinance, No. 4 of 1863, either by the Superintendent acting alone (Section II) for the offences enum there, or a breach of the Gaol Rules or discipline--or by the Superintendent in conjunction with the Visiting Ju if the offence is beyond the power of the Superintendent to visit with adequate punishment.

They are: Imprisonment in a "solitary cell" for 3 days on a diet of bread or rice and water; or Flogging 12 strokes of the rattan in case of felons.

In conjunction with Visiting Justices, the Superintendent may punish by close or solitary confinement on or rice and water for 14 days in the case of felons or prisoners twice convicted within 3 months by 36 strokes.

FLOGGING.

121

In the Regulations of June, 1857, the limit fixed by Rule 78 was not more than 6 strokes after a previous inspection by the Colonial Surgeon, the highest number of strokes being 15 (by Rule 83).

The Ordinance having over-ridden the Gaol Regulations, it will be seen that the Superintendent has no power to inflict corporal punishment on any prisoners but those convicted of felony when acting alone. With the concurrence of the Visiting Justices he has the power to punish not only felons, but prisoners twice in 3 months guilty of a similar breach of Gaol Rules or of the offences enumerated in the 10th Section of the Ordinance whether felons or misdemeanants.

  Recommendation as to flogging.—The majority of the Committee (3 to 2) recommend that the power of flogging a prisoner, except in the case of boys under 16 years, be taken altogether out of the hands of the Superintendent acting alone.

(Vide Lords' Reports, Part 2, Chap. 2, Note II).

That in cases of breach of Gaol Rules or of offences enumerated in the Special Rule proposed for the sanction of His Excellency, should the Superintendent consider that his powers of punishment are not adequate to the gravity of the offence, the Visiting Justices for the week should have notice given to them and be requested to attend at the earliest hour convenient to them.

That should neither two of the Visiting Justices of the week be able to attend, the Police Magistrate for the day shall go to the Gaol. That the offender be brought before them or him, and that the complaint be investigated on the oath of the witnesses, and that a note of the complaint and the evidence, as well as the sentence, be taken down in a book.

That such Visiting Justices, or Police Magistrate, should have authority to order all prisoners, except debtors and 1st class misdemeanants, to undergo a flogging of not more than 24 strokes if above 16 years of age, and not more than 12 strokes if under.

  IRONS, CHAINS AND HANDCUFFS.-By regulation 9, the Superintendent has at present power to put a prisoner in irons for an unlimited time, recording the facts in his book, meaning, it is presumed, the book answering to the "Daily Occurrence Book."

In a letter dated 8th February, 1876, the attention of the Committee was directed to this subject by the Colonial Secretary, who forwarded an extract from the Visiting Justices' book by which it was pointed out that a prisoner, MOK-A-KAP had been kept in double irons for a period (it is presumed but not stated) of 6 days consecutively, and suggesting that an Order be made placing a limit to the punishment.

Recommendation. The Committee recommend the adoption of a rule that this punishment (handcuffing and "chaining") should only be employed in cases of great necessity, as where a prisoner is in a state of great excitement and irritation and has used or threatens to use violence.

  Such restraint should not be continued for more than 24 hours consecutively without an order from a Visiting Justice specifying the cause thereof and the time during which the prisoner shall be kept in such restraint, which order the Superintendent shall preserve as his authority. This shall not affect the power of the Superintendent to make a prisoner work in leg-irons.

  SOLITARY CONFINEMENT AND DARK CELLS.-Solitary confinement will be considered separately as forming part of the punishment to be undorgone in carrying out a sentence. Of course, it is applicable to breaches of Gaol Rules as well.

  It means in England confinement by day and night in a light cell without any occupation or any possibility of speaking to any other prisoner. The Turnkeys who bring in the meals are forbidden to speak.

Dark Cells are a form of this punishment and a very severe one.

There are no proper dark cells in the present Gaol, as all admit some light. Intense darkness is the essence of the punishment, and is most irksome.

The Committee recommend that a certain number of "solitary cells" be so constructed as to be capable of being turned into "dark cells" provided care be taken that proper ventilation is secured.

That power be conferred on the Superintendent to confine misbehaving prisoners in dark cells for not longer than 12 hours and with the consent of the Visiting Justices or the Police Magistrate for the day, for 24 hours, care being taken that such prisoner be visited by a Turnkey at regular intervals with a light and that such Turnkey be strictly ordered to report at once to the Superintendent any injurious effect he may observe.

  Bread or Rice and Water for Europeans and Chinese. For the former it is a very efficacious punishment, for the latter it is not so as it differs but little from the ordinary diet, and as they have hitherto been relieved from all labour, whilst under this punishment, it has no deterrent effect.

The attention of the Committee has been called to one very great evil attending dietary punishment, inflicted for a breach of Gaol Rules.

They conflict with the dietaries awarded as part of the punishment under sentence.

The Rule as to bread or rice and water at present is this. Prisoners sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment and under, are kept the whole time on bread or rice and water, all other prisoners are kept on this diet for the first 6 months of their sentence during 10 days of each month from the 1st to the 5th and the 16th to the 20th. This was an alteration from the Amended Regulations of 1872, by which the first 10 days were passed on this diet.

The difficulty is that when bread or rice and water is ordered as a punishment for some Gaol offence imme- diately after the termination of a period of penal diet as part of the punishment under the sentence, the prisoners are apt to complain to the Medical Officer of weakness or ill-health. Either extra rations or a return to the full ordinary diet have in many cases been ordered by the Medical Officer, and thus the intended punishment is defeated. Recommendation. The Committee strongly advise that the Superintendent be empowered to give as punishment for Gaol offences, Solitary confinement for not more than 3 days consecutively, extra shot-drill with the 32 lb. shot if necessary, or "stone-carrying," or extra "oakum-picking," "irons," "chains" and "handcuffs" under the limits proposed, in the place of dietary punishments.

 "Crank."-The present Acting Superintendent is of opinion that this punishment should be reserved for offences against Gaol discipline.

 The Committee are of opinion that unless the crank can be used more extensively as a punishment by way of hard labour under sentence, it will be of advantage to adopt the recommendations of the Superintendent, as it would

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1877.

Mr. ToxNOCHY desires to state that he is strongly opposed to any reduction in the powers at present possesse by the Superintendent to administer any punishment allowed by the Regulations on his own and sole authority f offences against the Gaol Rules.

Solitary confinement generally ("Separate" System).-The possibility of introducing this system depends to great extent upon a reconstruction of the present Gaol. The whole subject was referred to the Surveyor Genera who gave his opinion in a written communication and explained his views to the Committee.

By pulling down the range of buildings occupied at present by the Magistrates' Courts and the house of th Captain Superintendent of Police, and using this space for building ranges of wards, and by altering the baseme floors of the present Gaol and the upper stories and the women's wards, the whole Gaol might be adapted to th

separate" system and at least 500 cells provided.

66

Though strongly recommended as making the Gaol more complete, this proposal may be considered too extensiv at present, and the Committee have not thought it necessary to go minutely into details or to ask the Survey General for an estimate of the cost.

But the Committee are of opinion that although they are not in a position to recommend a reconstruction of th whole Gaol, the partial adaptation of the present buildings to solitary cells might be carried out at no great expens and with very excellent results especially in the case of Chinese prisoners convicted for the 2nd or 3rd time.

The Surveyor General made a calculation that by converting the basements of the Gaol, the present wings, 6 solitary cells could be contructed, and by adding 12 by converting the women's ward would make 75.

It has been proposed that the present Dead House and Store Room contained in the same yard, which is 44 fee long by 14 broad, should be converted into a women's ward with 2 rooms for the Matron. The 20 women are the maximum number confined at any one time on record.

space is sufficient a The objection has been raised that there is no yard annexed in which the women could take exercise, and tha the Police latrine is on the other side of the wall.

But these objections might possibly be overcome, but still they are of weight.

Another proposal is that the range of buildings at present forming the Magistrates' Courts shall be given u to the Turnkeys and Gaol Officers and that their present quarters should be occupied by the Hospital on the lowe storey and by the women's ward on the upper, and that over the Turnkeys' Cook-houses quarters for the debtor should be built.

This is a plan which the Committee (although they strongly recommend, if it could be entertained, the large scheme of reconstruction) consider ought to be brought prominently under the notice of His Excellency.

A site for Magistrates' Courts, it is stated, was procured some time ago, just below the present residence o the Captain Superintendent of Police, and the dilapidated condition of the Courts now in use rendering it ver improbable that they can stand much longer, the Committee would strongly recommend that new Courts be buil on the site indicated, and that the present building be employed as quarters for the Gaol Officers as long as it i habitable.

The Committee think it only necessary to make these suggestions without going into question of cost o questions of general expediency. The requisite information would of course be sought for from the Surveyo General, should the suggestion be entertained.

COOK-HOUSES' REMOVAL.-The present Superintendent has suggested to the Committee the propriety of recom mending that the cook-houses be removed and rebuilt in the washing yard, where it is supposed there will be room for the operations of both cooking and washing.

There are great objections to the present position of the cook-houses. It intercepts the view from one end of the Gaol buildings to the other, rendering an additional sentry necessary, and is out of place altogether.

The removal of the building has been often strongly urged, and the Committee recommend that the Surveyor General be consulted and the building be removed if possible.

It may

 here be remarked that if the suggestion made of removing the Officers' quarters to the buildings at present occupied by the Magistracy be adopted, the present Turnkeys' cook-house could be used for the Gaol cook-house.

It has been already remarked, that the Committee think it extremely objectionable that the long sentenced prisoners, who are now employed in cooking for the Gaol Officers, should be allowed to come beyond the prison gates, as it is a relaxation of all discipline, and easy means of communication with the world outside are afforded. Coolies bringing necessaries for the use of the Gaol come constantly in contact with them.

Recommendation. The Committee strongly recommend, that iron gates be erected at the end of each of the "ramps" as they are called, and that no prisoner be allowed on any pretence to go beyond them.

TREAD-MILLS.

The erection of "Tread-mills" would come under the heading of Gaol alterations.

The experience collected in the various books and Reports on the subject goes to prove that the objections once entertained and still entertained by Sir WALTER CROFTON to the "tread-mill" as a punishment are groundless (Vide Prison Discipline 1868, page 88), and in a despatch of Lord GRANVILLE, (See Further Correspondence Prison Discipline in Colonies, page 38), it is stated to be most useful and deterrent. It would be especially adapted for the punishment of soldiers and sailors, who are committed in large numbers for offences against discipline.

Some years ago, it appears, a "Tread-mill" was in use in this Gaol, but it fell into disfavour, then into disuse, and was taken down.

The Surveyor General estimates the cost of a "Tread-mill" capable of holding 16 men at $2,000, and one suited to 8 men at $1.000.

The Committee think that "Tread-mills" might be introduced with great advantage into this Gaol, but they do not know anyone in the Colony who has had experience in their management.

GAOL STAFF.

The state of the Gaol staff is a very important question, which has engaged the attention of the Committee. The present number of Turnkeys is not sufficient. The Superintendent and the Warden consider their work excessive. Their hours of attendance are from 5.30 A.M. to 6 P.M., with intervals of ? of an hour for breakfast, 1 hour for luncheon, an hour f dinner. Once a fortnight in turns they get Friday night from 5.30 P.M., Saturday night and all Sunday to themselves.

  The Superintendent is of opinion that the class of men employed as Turnkeys should be improved. Very few of the present staff can write, which is certainly objectionable, as they cannot make entries in the Log and other books with their own hands. Mr. TOMLIN is of opinion that the salaries should be raised, and has sent in a body of suggestions to the Committee. As the enquiry involved a comparison with the pay of Police Officers, which is entirely beyond the question submitted to the Committee, they have contented themselves with laying Mr. TOMLIN'S statement before His Excellency.

DRY EARTH SYSTEM.

The Superintendent and Warden have called the attention of the Committee to the vitiated state of the air in the wards in the early morning caused by the stench proceeding from the night buckets. It is not easy to suggest a complete remedy as there is great difficulty in procuring mould in Hongkong. The soil of the island, a sort of laterite or desintegrated granite, does not absorb the urine so well or deodorise it so thoroughly as mould. The great point, however, seems to be that the earth of whatever kind (except clay) should be dry and well sifted; when mixed with a small quantity of the common carbolic acid it would, it is believed, mitigate the nuisance.

PENAL SERVITUDE AND IMPRISONMENT WITH HARD LABOUR

SENTENCES.

  The Supreme Court has at present power to sentence a prisoner to two years' imprisonment with hard labour, or to penal servitude for any period not under 3 years. But under the present Gaol system the words "Penal Servi- tude" in the sense which they bear in England as implying progressive stages of imprisonment and punishment have no meaning.

  Long sentence prisoners after undergoing 6 months of penal diet and hard labour are for the residue of their term in many cases put to light labour such as cooking, service, washing, mat-making, and go through no real course of penal labour.

  The Committee are strongly of opinion that prisoners condemned to penal servitude should, during the whole term of their sentences, pass periods on penal diet of at least 5 days every month and in the case of previous convic- tions 10 days a month, and that such prisoners should be kept to real hard labour for at least 3 years of their sentence. (Mr. TONNOCHY dissents).

  It is also recommended that the Ordinance No. 4 of 1863 be amended to meet the proposed alterations in the Regulations, and that the shortest term of Penal Servitude be increased to 5 years and of imprisonment with hard labour to 3 years if the distinction between the two is to be kept up, the advantages of which are doubtful.

  It would certainly be desirable that the Judges should know more exactly to what amount and kind of punish- mnt they are sentencing a prisoner and if the distinction between imprisonment with hard labour and penal servitude be preserved they should be more clearly defined.

During the course of the enquiry the attention of the Committee was called particularly by the Colonial Secretary to the subject of cutting off "queues" of Chinese prisoners.

""

By the present regulations, except on grounds of health and cleanliness, the "queues" of those prisoners only on whom sentences of 2 years and upwards have been passed are cut.

queues of prisoners The Committee recommend that the rule at present existing be retained and that the " sentenced to 2 years' imprisonment with hard labour and upwards be removed, but be allowed to grow for 6 months previous to a prisoner's discharge from Gaol.

In the case of 2nd convictions for 6 months or more up to 1 year, it is recommended that the "queue" should be cut off or not at the discretion of the Judge or Magistrate before whom the case is tried, such discretion to be em- bodied and to form part of the sentence.

The Committee strongly recommend that the photographing of prisoners be carried out more carefully. The photographs are now taken in the Police Station, and are not well executed.

The evidence shows that under the present abundant diet, Chinese prisoners alter so much between the conviction and trial that identification is difficult. And identification is still more difficult when prisoners return to Gaol a second or third time, and the recollection goes back to the appearance of the prisoner at the time of trial.

The Committee think that great advantage would be derived from causing the prisoners to be photographed twice-once on admission and a second time on leaving the Gaol.

The Committee recommend that prisoners convicted for a second and third time be distinguished by a coloured sleeve, or some other apparent difference in their dress.

65. The said Medical Officer shall deliver to the Colonial Secretary, as soon as possible after the close of the month of December in each year, a report in writing in which shall be detailed the number of the sick amongst the prisoners during the year just closed, the mortality, the sanitary condition of the Gaol, what diseases have been most prevalent therein, and shall point out any defects in the construction or management of the Gaol to which such sickness may be attributed, and also what precautions should be taken to prevent the same.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

  The following Annual Report on the state of the Government Schools in Hongkong, for the Year 1876, is published for general information.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 8th March, 1877.

By Command,

H. E. WODEHouse, Acting Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG, 14th February, 1877.

SIR, I have the honour to forward to you the Annual Report on Education for 1876.

  2. From the Tables that form the appendix it will be seen that there was a marked increase in the attendance at all the schools, whether taken collectively, or in accordance with the classification usually adopted in these reports. This will be best shown by the following abstract:-

Increase at all the Schools,.

Increase at the Government Schools, Increase at the Grant-in-Aid Schools,

.12 per cent. .13

3. One very important feature in the history of the year is the great increase in the number of girls at the various schools. It may be stated thus:-

Increase at all the Schools,

Increase at the Government Schools,

Increase at the Grant-in-Aid Schools,.

.27 per cent. ..30

Although the number of girls bears but a small proportion to that of boys, being only about 1 to 5, yet in a place where female education is not merely neglected but looked upon as unnecessary, if not pernicious, it is gratifying to see prejudice yielding as it is doing to the dictates of common sense and duty.

4. As regards the Central School, it would be superfluous to add anything to previous reports. The numbers are all but stationary; and this is due to but one cause, the want of accommoda- tion. Applications for admission are steadily increasing, and disappointments at refusal are becoming more numerous and are being less patiently borne. As a remedy for all this cannot be far distant now, although it cannot arrive in time to affect the current year, further notice of the school, its working, its aims, and its success, may therefore be deferred until the new building is occupied, and a more extended sphere of action thus opened up to it.

                         Schools has now been very happily 5. One drawback to the efficiency of the Village Schools has now removed. It had long been but too evident that the masters reserved their energies for the closing weeks of the year, instead of applying themselves with sustained effort to the whole year's work; and, as it had been found that, in the Grant-in-Aid schools, the proportion of the grant which is handed to the masters has a most beneficial effect in maintaining steady application throughout the year, a modification of this plan was adopted in the case of the Village Schools. It amounted to this, that at the end of the year the schools were to be divided into three classes, Very Good, Good, and Fair; that masters whose schools were in the first rank would receive a bonus of $25 each; those of the second $15 each; those of the third nil; and all below the third were to be recommended for dismissal. The classification was to depend primarily on the result of the annual examinations, but it was to be modified by the masters' attention to discipline and other points of order, as ascertained on occasions of inspection.

6. It may be premature to found too much confidence on the result of the first year's experiment, but that result amounted to this: that more attention was paid to the work, that the number of scholars did not fall off rapidly towards the close of the year, that on no previous occasion were the scholars present on the examination day so numerous, and that the amount and quality of the work done were never so satisfactory. Five schools were placed in the first rank, nine in the second, and the remaining fifteen in the third. Two or three at the end of the last list are very poor in many ways, but there were circumstances, local and personal, connected with them that prevented the adoption of the severe measure which forms part of the scheme. It does not, therefore, follow that they will be so favourably dealt with on a future occasi、 1. Two schools also were placed in this rank, which, if judged by the result of the examinations alone would have been placed in the second; but the discipline was so lax that any reward to the masters would have been injurious, both to themselves and to their schools. A table with the schools now referred to arranged in the order of their efficiency will be found in its proper place in the appendix.

132

THE HONGKong goverNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1877.

7. There is little to be said of these schools individually. Aberdeen alone calls for any comment. In the beginning of the year it was almost extinct, the attendance having dwindled to four. This con- tinued till the month of June, at the end of which it was seriously intended to shut up the school. It so happened, however, that Mr. MATHIESON of the Police Force was then in charge of the Aberdeen Station, and seeing so many children doing nothing except getting into mischief, he remonstrated with their parents, and the consequence was that the numbers rose from 4 to 20. As a final effort towards utilizing the school, an evening class was opened in the month of July for the benefit of the Chinese police and the workmen at the Aberdeen Docks. This gave promise of being a very fortunate step. There were more applicants for admission than the schoolroom could accommodate, and considerable disappointment was occasioned thereby. The class at first numbered 34, and continued at nearly the same point for some months; but on account of the constant shifting from place to place of the scholars, and also on account of one of those outbreaks of fever from which the village hardly ever escapes. autumn, the numbers declined rapidly during the last months of the year. There is reason to believe, moreover, that the master is far from blameless for the falling off, but how to find a better man is a very difficult problem. Taking the year as a whole, the results were not altogether unsatisfactory. The average monthly enrolment of the day and night schools together was 25, and the average daily attendance for the year was 17. Nevertheless, it is evident that the Aberdeen school has not yet overcome its difficulties; and its future history is altogether uncertain.

in

8. The Grant-in-Aid Scheme has now had a three years' trial, and the result is upon the whole satisfactory. With one exception both managers and masters have expressed their satisfaction with the scheme itself and with the working of it. St. Paul's College School, St. Stephen's Church School St. at Sai Ying-p'?n, and the Victoria Girls' School were added to the list during the last year. Saviour's Day School was withdrawn. This makes the present number of those schools eleven, and there are fresh applications for the current year.

9. Experience has shown the necessity of one or two modifications of the original scheme. It is now evident that the values of the passes should be raised, and a proposal to that effect will soon be offered for approval. It will also be proposed to pay for attendance. Regularity is in itself a very valuable result, calling for much attention from all connected with a school, and being only attainable after considerable exertion. A payment, therefore, of so much per head on the average attendance will be included among the recommendations that are to be made. This, it is to be hoped, will satisfy the conductors of St. Saviour's Day School, now St. Joseph's English School, and induce them to re- consider their decision of declining to receive aid on the present conditions. On another point which presents an obstacle there may be some difficulty. It is objected to the present scheme that 200 daily attendances of 4 hours each in a year, is an excessive requirement, and that so much is not required elsewhere. It will of course rest with the Executive to say how far, if at all, it is desirable to make a retrogression in this direction, but a recommendation to that effect is not likely to be inade. In agricultural and other districts where the services of the children are indispensable at certain seasons, it is only proper that due allowance should be made; but here, in the city of Victoria, there is nothing At present 113 days, exclusive but sickness which can possibly interfere with a scholar's attendance. of Sundays, are allowed for holidays and other causes of absence; and if that margin is not ample enough for all contingencies, it is difficult to see how we can stop short of allowing work to yield to play. On no other ground will any objection be offered, but firmness on this point seems to mean the difference between efficiency and inefficiency; between a school where education is considered a diffi- culty to be strenuously grappled with, and a school where only a certain routine of duty is considered sufficient.

10. A slight change was made last year in two of the standard's for schools in Class I, that is, schools in which a Chinese education is given. These standards were too low, as was evident from the numbers that were presented for examination under them. The managers were satisfied with the change, but the masters, at first, did not accept of it without some demur. They ultimately admitted, on being pressed, that the change was all in favour of efficiency.

11. There is one subject which demands the strictest attention of managers. There is a tendency on the part of some of the masters to push on their scholars too quickly to the higher standards, probably, (shall it be said?), for the greater pecuniary advantage which they offer. This was seen very conspicuously at St. Stephen's Church School and the London Mission School in T'?i-p'ing Sh?n, and very disastrously at the London Mission School in W?n-tsai. Managers will find it necessary for the character of their schools to give their personal attention to this matter, and not allow the examina- tion schedule to be forwarded until they have satisfied themselves that the scholars are entered in standards suited to their attainments and to their stay.hool. It will no doubt happen that a clever boy can, with advantage to himself and to the school, be allowed to skip a standard occasionally; but, if this were the rule and not the exception, it would follow that the present standards are too low. That they are not so is admitted, and that being the case, the patient passing from standard to standard in successive years will be found to be the safest for the school and the wisest for the scholar. This is It was only a subject which cannot be too earnestly commended to the consideration of managers. last year that the tendency was observed, and it is probably due, in some measure, to the introduction of the changes already referred to.

12. Ta another matter also the personal attention of all managers is requested. Greater accuracy is necessary in making up the annual returns. In England, grants are not paid until these have been examined and passed; and, although there is no desire to hold out a threat, it may be advisable to adopt the same plan here. Chinese teachers especially have no notion of accuracy, probably because they cannot appreciate the value of statistics, which, it is needless to say, are worse than useless when not strictly correct. Managers will find it absolutely necessary to check every entry made by the teachers, if trouble to themselves and delay elsewhere are to be avoided in future.

  13. Coming more particularly to the results of the examination, the question of attendance. having already been discussed, 390 scholars were presented and 300 passed; in other words, the passes amounted to 77 per cent. This is lower than the average reached in England, but not lower perhaps than our special circumstances will account for. Speaking of the Birmingham Board Schools in November last, the Chairman is reported to have said: "As to educational results, the average number of passes is now 86 per cent., and for the past three years 84 per cent., while the average for the whole country has been a fraction less than 80 per cent." As only three of our schools are below that mark, there are good grounds for hope that we shall not be long behind our contemporaries.

It is always necessary to repeat that this does not afford a just basis of comparison between the schools, on account of the different classes to which they belong; but, taking it in conjunction with the passes in the several subjects taught in the schools, as given in Table XIII, it will not be difficult to arrive at a fair conclusion as to the comparative merits of the schools. Managers will do well to give that Table a careful perusal, as by it they can best ascertain wherein their strength or their weakness lies.

  15. In explanation of these two kinds of passes, it may be stated that a scholar may pass in read- ing but fail in writing or arithmetic, or in both. He will therefore not pass in the standard, but his pass in reading will count in estimating the general efficiency of the school. In England, all passes are paid for, but here, as in some other places, scholars are treated individually, and they have to pass fairly in all the subjects of a standard before the school gets the benefit of the result. This, of course, is a more laborious work for the examiner, but while the schools are limited in number as at present the additional labour may be disregarded; for the plan adopted is a better test of how far each scholar has benefited by the instruction given to him, and of his individual fitness for promotion to a higher standard. The higher values assigned to passes here make up for any loss arising from failures in individual subjects. In England, the rate is four shillings for a pass in reading, the same for one in writing, and the same for one in arithmetic, in all the standards. Here, the sums allowed for passes in the standards rise in a graduated scale from two dollars in the first to as much as eight, nine, and ten dollars in the sixth, according to the class in which the school is ranked. The greater expense attending education here is an additional reason for the higher rate of payment.

  16. In addition to these general remarks, it will be proper to say something of the individual merits of these schools. For this purpose they will be taken in groups, in the order suggested by the preceding arrangement.

17. The Baxter Schools for Chinese Girls are advancing steadily both in numbers and in efficiency. The Staunton Street school was rather weak in geography, and the T'?i-p'ing Sh?n school in the explanation of the passages selected for reading; but, with these exceptions, the schools stand very high in all the subjects taught in them. The T?i-p'ing Sh?n school was removed early in the year from very incommodious premises to the Baxter Memorial Sol, which is all that could be desired as a class-room. The other schools are in fairly suitable buildings.

18. The St. Stephen's Church Schools are two in number. The new school situated in Sai Ying- p'?n, promises well. The scholars were wisely confined to the three lower standards, thus ensuring efficiency for the present and a solid foundation for the future. Reading was comparatively the weakest subject, but in other respects the school stood well. There were only four failures. The T?i-p'ing Sh?n school, for the reason already given, did not stand so high as in the previous year. The fall of 12 per cent. in the number of passes was due to too great an anxiety on the part of the master to push on his scholars too rapidly, and also to his undervaluing the effect of the slight raising of the standards. This will be remedied in future, as both manager and master arc alive to the mis- take that was made. Barring this, there was abundant evidence of much hard work during the year. In several subjects the school stood much higher than any other in its own class. In composition alone could it be said to be really deficient.

19. The Victoria Schools are also two in number. The Boys' School stands 19 per cent higher than it did in 1875. Writing (from dictation) and arithmetic were rather weak, but in other subjects, geography especially, the proficiency was very great. The discipline of the school is hardly strict enough, but this reference to it will doubtless bring about the necessary change. It may be reinarked in passing that in the majority of these schools this subject needs greater attention; for it includes not merely order and regularity, but habits of strict honesty when under examination. The necessity for keeping a close watch on the scholars while doing their written work imposes on the examiner a dis- agreeable duty from which he could be considerably relieved, if greater strictness were exercised throughout the year. It should not be forgotten that an adverse report on this point reduces the grant to a school by 5 per cent. The Girls' School is in a highly satisfactory condition. Although only in its first year, scholars were presented in all the standards except the sixth, and all were fit for the standards in which they were placed. Every subject was thoroughly taught, as the high per- centage of passes will prove. The discipline of the school and the intelligence of the scholars were especially noted as worthy of commendation. These two schools are strictly undenominational. They are attended pricipally by Portuguese, but are open to scholars of every class and of every creed.

20. St. Paul's College School is the third of the new schools which came under the scheme during the year.. It was attended by 102 scholars, and the average daily attendance was 65. The teaching power is strong, there being a European master and two Chinese assistants for the three classes into which the scholars are divided. The class-rooms are spacious and well ventilated. The school materials are good and sufficient. The discipline is good. Great proficiency was shown in all the subjects that were undertaken. Several of the boys could have been placed in higher standards; but as the school was in its first year, and consequently feeling its way, it was wisely decided to limit the standards to the first three. Writing (from dictation) was the weakest subject, but all the others were very strong. If nothing unforeseen occurs, there is a successful future in store for this school.

1

21. In the Basel Mission Girls' School there was a falling off amounting to 10 per cent. This was due to the greater, number of presentations in the two highest standards. It was in these alone that any weakness was shown. The others were well up to the previous mark. There was a remark- able falling off in History, owing to the manager's having had to place the class entirely in the hands of the Chinese teacher, who will have to exert himself considerably before the lost ground has been recovered; but the school is in good hands, and defects have only to be pointed out to receive the attention which they require.

22. The London Mission Schools were particularly unfortunate, and the cause was clearly ambi- tion overleaping itself. The masters are energetic, intelligent men; but they allowed themselves to be allured, it is to be feared, by the pecuniary advantages which the higher standards offer. This was not so conspicuous at the T'?i-p'ing Sh?n school, which has risen one per cent., but as it had a long leeway to make up, on account of the former teacher's neglect, this is not so satisfactory as it would otherwise have been. The W?n-tsai school fell from 88 to 59 per cent. No scholars were entered in the first standard, and only three in the third. The rest were distributed among the second, fifth, and sixth; and of the 16 presented in the fifth standard no fewer than 12 failed. In addition to this error of judgment, the master made a mistake as to the amount of work he had to do, and in certain cases attempted to do just double what was required of him. The result could hardly have been otherwise than it proved. Perhaps the worst effect has been the resignation of the master, who lost heart and gave up his post. Although the examiner could not transgress the bounds prescribed to him, the manager would have been able to make allowance for failings which leaned to the side of duty. The same energy properly directed would, on another trial, have regained all that had been lost, and future success would have blunted the sting of last year's misfortune. At these two schools care will hence- forth be taken that the manager is consulted about the classification of the scholars before the examinations take place.

23. The School Book Committee's books, which vere at first neglected and not a little despised, are now read in all the schools in the Colony over which there is Government supervision. Chinese masters, like a great many grown up people, object to aking up a new study. What they were taught at school is good enough for those whom they have to teach. The subject-matter, though very familiar to Europeans, was, it must be remembered, entirely new to the masters, who, if left to themselves, would not have taken the trouble to familiarize themselves with the contents of the books; but steady pressure from all who were in charge of the schools brought about a change of attitude. When the masters understood that they had to teach them, the necessary exertion was soon forthcoming, and the books are now read side by side with the Chinese Classics and no objection offered. Three of the books have now reached the second edition, and the series promises to have more success than could ever have been anticipated for it.

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

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

HARBOUR DEPARTMENT, HONGKONG, 21st February, 1877.

SHIPPING.

2. Under this heading, it is satisfactory to find that the number of vessels frequenting this Port continues to be on, the increase, 2,113 more vessels of different descriptions, measuring 338,117 tons, having arrived in 1876 than entered the Port in the previous year. In my last Annual Report, I was enabled to show an improvement in the Trade of the Colony, and it is gratifying to report for the year 1876 in an equally encouraging manner.

3. Of the above mentioned numbers, the Junk trade absorbs 90.7 per cent. of vessels and 36.6 per cent. of tonnage, but this trade will be dealt with in its proper place.

4. Excluding the Junk trade, 2,867 vessels, measuring 2,173,435 tons, entered the Port in 1876, being 6.84 per cent. of vessels and 9.86 per cent. of tons more than arrived in 1875; and, dividing these arrivals into classes, it will be found that 76 per cent. of vessels, and 81.6 per cent. of tons were steam-ships; and 24 per cent. of vessels, and 18.4 per cent. of tons were vessels propelled by sails

alone.

5. The Steam trade of the Colony is divid proportions: 83.75 per cent. British; 4.31 per cen

mongst the following nationalities in the stated French; 3.77 per cent. each German and Chinese; 1.74 per cent. each Danish and Spanish; and the re naining 0.92 per cent. are American, Dutch, and

Russian.

6. The Port of Hoi-how in the Island of Hainan was opened for trade on the 1st April last, and since that date 27 vessels, with a capacity equal to 15,495 tons, have been entered from that Port, which may be considered a very fair beginning.

7. The trade with Great Britain remains nearly the same; that with the Australian Colonies is also about the same, 10 more British vessels having been entered as against 13 vessels less under foreign flags. The principal increase is with the Coast of China, Formosa and Cochin China. With the Coast of China, a good deal of the increase is consequent on the competition for the Passenger and Cargo traffic between this and Canton and Macao. There is also a slight increase between this and Siam and Japan.

JUNK TRADE.

S. There is an increase of 1,917 vessels and 123,724 tons with the Coast of China and Formosa: an also an increase in the Local Trade, that between the villages on the Island, of 419 vessels and 15,643 tons; while there is a slight falling off in the Junk trade between this and Macao, which may be accounted for by the additional steam accommodation which is now provided.

9. The fluctuations of the Junk trade are very uncertain and unaccountable. A glance at the accompanying diagram will show a steady rise from 1867 to 1872, when there was a sudden fall in 1873 and 1874, rising again in 1875 and 1876.

EMIGRATION.

10. The gross emigration of Chinese for the year 1876 has been 1.892 persons less than left here he previous year.

5,134 less Chinese left for California, and out of a total, of 14,034 leaving for

ate, only 52 were women.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH MARCH, 1877. 11. Cooktown still absorbs a goodly number of Chinese, and is the only Port in the Australian Colonies that takes many. Little or no advantage has as yet been taken of the facilities offered by Ordinance No. 5 of 1876, which permits of contracts being entered into with Servants; and also allows first class Chinese passengers to proceed in Emigrant vessels without being passed through this Office. 12. It is reported that the Queensland Quarantine laws have been brought to bear hardly on the British Steamer Mecca, which left this for Cooktown on the 11th December last with 378 Chinese passengers. This vessel arrived at Cooktown on the 28th of the same month with one case of small-pox on board. The vessel was placed in Quarantine and the Master is reported to have been ordered to perform about 21 days Quarantine with the whole of his passengers on board; or procced to Keppel Bay, about 600 miles South of Cooktown, and there perform Quarantine. The Master very properly adopted the latter course rather than run the risk of spreading the contagion on board his crowded vessel. The loss to the Charterers in Hongkong is very considerable, and it is to be regretted that greater facilities for the performance of Quarantine at or near Cooktown were not provided.

13. A total of 46,350 emigrated in 1876, against 48,152 who left in 1875; and of the returned Chinese, 42,390 landed at Hongkong in 1876, against 38,502 landed in 1875.

REGISTRY OF SHIPPING.

14. There are at present 66 vessels registered in Hongkong as against a total of 70 vessels on the books at the end of 1875. Nothing noteworthy under this heading has occurred during the year.

MARINE MAGISTRATE'S COURT.

15. There have been the usual number of cases for trial. Refusal of duty being the principal charge brought against Seamen.

EXAMINATIONS FOR THE POSTS OF MASTERS AND MATES, UNDER

ORDINANCE No. 17 OF 1860.

16. Of fifty-four applicants for examination, 66.7 per cent. obtained Certificates, and 33.3 per cent. were rejected, which is the usual average.

MARINE COURTS, UNDER ORDINANCE No. 11 OF 1860.

17. The following Courts have been held during the year:-

On the 9th August, 1876,-Inquiry as to the alleged misconduct of the Chief Mate (WILLIAM HENRY MOSS) of the British Schooner Bethany, Official No. 62,560. The Master failed to prove the charges.

On same date,-Inquiry as to the misconduct of the Chief Mate (JOHN RUSSELL HELLYER) of the British Barque Corea, Official No. 21,333. The Chief Mate was ordered to be discharged from the ship.

On the 5th September, 1876,-Inquiry as to the loss of the British Brig Rob Roy, Official No. 51,781, on the North Shoal, Paracels Group. Certificate of Competency returned to the Master.

   On the 24th November, 1876,-Inquiry as to the misconduct of the Second Mate (GEORGE GREY) of the British Steamer Estepona, Official No. 68,353. Certificate of Competency suspended for 12

months.

   On the 30th November, 1876,-Inquiry as to the collision of the British Steamer Leonor, Official No. 64,129, with the American Schooner Frances Lewy, off the White Dogs Island near Foochow result- ing in the loss of 6 lives. Third Mate's (HARRY THOMAS WAVELL) Certificate of Competency was sus- pended for 12 months.

SEAMEN.

   18. A record was kept for six months during the year with a view to ascertaining the proportion of foreigners to natives of Great Britain serving in British vessels, with the following result:-

Of 143 British vessels arriving during that period, 4 per cent. of Masters and Officers were foreigners; and, of the crews, 47.16 per cent. were British subjects; 25.21 per cent. Chinese; 17.92 per cent. East Indians; 3.83 per cent. Norwegians and Swedes; 1.14 per cent. German; 1.08 per cent. West Indians; 0.98 per cent. natives of North America; the remaining 2.68 per cent. being Seamen of other nationalities than those mentioned.

19. Shipmasters, when their vessels are employed in the Coast trade, prefer to have a Chinese crew. Chinese make fair Seamen, they are sober, industrious and subordinate; and, as a rule, they obtain as high rate of wages as Europeans.

C

20. There have been 7,147 men shipped and 7,194 discharged during the year.

I have the honour to be,
