KOREA.

South Korea.-Two low rocks, 6ft. and 12ft. high, lie respectively S. 73° E. distant 2 miles, and N. 66° E 1 mile from the islet close off the East coast of Herschel Point, and there are probably more dangers in their vicinity.

Fusan, or Tsan Liang Hai, Harbour.-The soundings in the Southern entrance have shoaled, the least water now in mid-channel is 10 feet at low water springs-There are 2 patches of that depth, one lying E.N.E. and the other E.S.E. of the large village one mile S.S.W. of the Japanese settlement. The East side of this channel is the safest, but this entrance should only be used near high water.-The soundings at the Northern entrance, between the two rocks marked

uncover 6 feet" and " uncover 4 feet," have shoaled three quarters of a fathom.

Admiralty Charts 104 Korean Archipelago, 1259 Tsan-liang-hai harbour, and China Sea Directory, Vol. IV, pages 63-71, are affected hereby.

To the Commodore and the respective Captains, Commanders

WATER SUPPLY.

The continued absence of rain and the conse- quent scarcity of water in the Pokfúlam Reservoir, render it of urgent importance that great economy

should be exercised regarding the present dimin- ished supply.

Householders are earnestly requested to adopt

all possible precautions against a lavish use of water obtained through the Mains from the Reservoir, and they are desired to prohibit their

servants from procuring water from that source

for the irrigation of gardens.

""

1. Section 15 of the Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, is hereby amended by substituting the words "2 Deputy Registrars" in place of the words "a Deputy Registrar and the words "2 clerks of the Court" instead of the words 66 a clerk of the Court."

2. The Governor may from time to time appoint one or more Bailiffs of the Supreme Court, and may also from time to time approve of the appointment by any such Bailiff of a Deputy Bailiff. Each Bailiff may, however, act as the Deputy of another and execute any process of the Court, although it may have been directed personally to some other Bailiff.

3. The Registrar shall direct the process of the Court to be executed by such of the Bailiffs of the Court as he may from time to time think fit.

4. In case process may be awarded by the Court against any officer of the Court, such process may be issued directed or executed by any other officer of the Court as the Court or a Judge may direct.

5. Each Bailiff shall serve and execute all process of the Supreme Court under the directions of the Registrar, and make a return of the same together with the manner of the execution thereof to the Court, and shall arrest and convey to prison all such persons as shall be committed to his custody by order of the Court.

6. No suit shall be brought against a Bailiff for anything done or omitted to be done by him whilst acting under the directions in writing of the Registrar or of a Deputy Regis- trar of the Court or in pursuance of any order made or given by the Court or a Judge as hereinafter mentioned. Provided always that such Bailiff do not wilfully misrepresent, or suppress any material fact in obtaining any such directions from the Registrar or Deputy Registrars.

7. No suit shall be brought against the Registrar or any Deputy Registrar for any act done or omitted to be done by any of the Bailiffs or Deputy Bailiffs without directions from such Registrar or Deputy Registrar, nor shall any suit be brought against any Registrar or Deputy Registrar for any directions given to a Bailiff with regard to the execu- tion or non-execution of process if such directions shall be in accordance with an order obtained from the Court or a Judge as hereinafter mentioned. Provided always that no material fact be wilfully misrepresented or suppressed by such Registrar or Deputy Registrar in obtaining such order.

8. The Registrar or Deputy Registrar may in case of doubt or difficulty apply summarily to the Court or a Judge for an order for the direction and guidance of the Bailiff, and the Court or Judge may make such order in the matter as may seem just and reasonable.

9. No officer of the Supreme Court shall directly or in- directly ask or receive any fee or gratuity, not authorized by law, in respect of any of the duties of his office.

10. If any officer of the Supreme Court acting under colour of the process of the Court is charged with mis- conduct or with any wrongful act or neglect in the discharge of the duties of his office, the Court or Judge may enquire into the matter in a summary way on such evidence as may appear reasonable, and for that purpose may summon and enforce the attendance of all necessary parties and witnesses in like manner as the attendance of witnesses in other cases may be enforced, and may make such order for the payment of all damages and costs that may have been caused by any such act or neglect as it or he thinks just, and impose such fine upon the officer as it or he may deem adequate; and in default of payment of any money so ordered to be paid, payment of the same may be enforced as a judgment recovered in the Court. Provided always that this provision shall not take away any right of action for damages against any officer, but no action shall be commenced or continued for any act or omission of such officer after the Court or a Judge has ordered compensation to be paid in respect of it under this section.

11. Whenever any suit shall be brought against any officer of the Court for any act done or omitted to be done in the execution of his duties, and a verdict or judgment shall be given for the plaintiff in such suit, the plaintiff shall not have costs against the defendant unless the Judge certifies his approval of the suit and verdict or when the trial is had without a jury of the suit only. If a. verdict or judgment is given for the defendant or the plaintiff becomes non-suited or discontinues the suit after issue joined, or if on demurrer or otherwise judgment is given against the plaintiff, the defendant shall recover his full costs and shall have the like remedy for the same as any defendant has by law for costs in other cases.

12. No such suit shall be brought except within three months after the act of omission or commission complained of. Notice in writing of every such suit and of the cause thereof shall be given to the intended defendant one month at least before the commencement of the suit.

The plaintiff shall not recover if tender of sufficient amends is made before a suit is commenced or if after a suit is commenced a sufficient sum of money is paid into Court by or on behalf of the defendant and the defendant under- takes to pay costs when taxed.

13. All fees receivable in the Supreme Court shall be payable in stamps subject to the provisions of the Stamp Ordinance. The fees heretofore payable under the Sheriff's Ordinance, 1873, shall continue to be payable in respect of process issued by the Court until a new scale of fees for the Supreme Court generally shall be prepared and adopted.·

Short title.

Liability of fugitive

An Act to amend the Law with respect to Fugitive Offenders in Her Majesty's Dominions, and for other Purposes connected with the Trial of Offenders.

[27th August 1881.]

BE

E it enacted by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the saine, as follows; (that is to say,)

1. This Act may be cited as the Fugitive Offenders Act, 1881.

PART I.

RETURN OF FUGITIVES.

2. Where a person accused of having committed an offence (to which this part to be apprehended of this Act applies) in one part of Her Majesty's dominions has left that part, such person (in this Act referred to as a fugitive from that part) if found in another part of Her Majesty's dominions, shall be liable to be apprehended and returned in manner provided by this Act to the part from which he is a fugitive.

Endorsing of

warrant for appre-

hension of fugitive.

Provisional warrant

for apprehension of fugitive.

Dealing with fugitive when apprehended.

A fugitive may be so apprehended under an endorsed warrant or a provisional

warrant.

3. Where a warrant has been issued in one part of Her Majesty's dominions for the apprehension of a fugitive from that part, any of the following authorities in another part of Her Majesty's domihions in or on the way to which the fugitive is or is suspected to be; (that is to say,)

(1.) A judge of a superior court in such part; and

(2.) In the United Kingdom a Secretary of State and one of the magistrates of

the metropolitan police court in Bow Street; and

(3.) In a British possession the governor of that possession, if satisfied that the warrant was issued by some person having lawful authority to issue the same, may endorse such warrant in manner provided by this Act, and the warrant so endorsed shall be a sufficient authority to apprehend the fugitive in the part of Her Majesty's dominions in which it is endorsed, and bring him before a magistrate.

4. A magistrate of any part of Her Majesty's dominions may issue a provisional warrant for the apprehension of a' fugitive who is or is suspected of being in or on his way to that part on such information, and under such circumstances, as would in his opinion justify the issue of a warrant if the offence of which the fugitive is accused had been committed within his jurisdiction, and such warrant may be backed and executed accordingly.

A magistrate issuing a provisional warrant shall forthwith send a report of the issue, together with the information or a certified copy thereof, if he is in the United Kingdom, to a Secretary of State, and if he is in a British possession, to the governor of that possession, and the Secretary of State or governor may, if he think fit, discharge the person apprehended under such warrant.

5. A fugitive when apprehended shall be brought before a magistrate, who (subject to the provisions of this Act) shall hear the case in the same manner and have the same jurisdiction and powers, as near as may be (including the power to remand and admit to bail), as if the fugitive were charged with an offence committed within his jurisdiction.

If the endorsed warrant for the apprehension of the fugitive is duly authenticated, and such evidence is produced as (subject to the provisions of this Act) according to the law ordinarily administered by the magistrate, raises a strong or probable presumption that the fugitive committed the offence mentioned in the warrant, and that the offence is one to which this part of this Act applies, the magistrate shall commit the fugitive to prison to await his return, and shall forthwith send a certificate of the committal and such report of the case as he may think fit, if in the United Kingdom to a Secretary of State, and if in a British possession to the governor of that possession.

Where the magistrate commits the fugitive to prison he shall inform the fugitive that he will not be surrendered until after the expiration of fifteen days, and that he has a right to apply for a writ of habeas corpus, or other like process.

A fugitive apprehended on a provisional warrant may be from time to time

8. Where a person accused of an offence and returned in pursuance of this part of this Act to any part of Her Majesty's dominions, either is not prosecuted for the said offence within six months after his arrival in that part, or is acquitted of the said offence, then if that part is the United Kingdom a Secretary of State, and if that part is a British possession the governor of that possession, may, if he think fit, on the request of such person, cause him to be sent back free of cost and with as little delay as possible to the part of Her Majesty's dominions in or on his way to which he was apprehended.

Such order for return may be made by warrant under the hand of the magistrate making it, and may be executed according to the tenor thereof.

A magistrate in a British possession of a group to which this part of this Act applies, before the endorsement in pursuance of this part of this Act of a warrant for the apprehension of any person, may issue a provisional warrant for the apprehension of that person, on such information and under such circumstances as would in his opinion justify the issue of a warrant if the offence of which such person is accused were an offence punishable by the law of the said possession, and had been committed within his jurisdiction, and such warrant may be backed and executed accordingly; provided that a person arrested under such provisional warrant shall be discharged unless the original warrant is produced and endorsed within such reasonable time as may under the circumstances seem requisite.

The following Hydrographic Notices are published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 20th January, 1883.

39

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

The substance of this Notice, as soon as it is received on board, is to be inserted in red ink on the Charts affected by it; and introduced into the margin, or otherwise in the page, of the Sailing Directions to which it relates. See Admiralty Instructions, Navigation and Pilotage, pp. 312

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

(No. 212.)

CHINA SEA.

UNIFORM SYSTEM OF COLOURING BUOYS AND BEACONS IN CHINESE WATERS.

The Chinese Government has given Notice, dated 4th August 1882, that the following system of colouring buoys and beacons in Chinese waters has been adopted:

The side of the channel is to be considered starboard, or port, with reference to the entrance to any port from seaward.

BUOYS.

1. Buoys coloured red mark the starboard side of the channel, and must be left on the starboard hand by vessels entering.

2. Buoys coloured black mark the port side of the channel, and must be left on the port hand by vessels entering.

3. Buoys painted in red and black horizontal bands mark the fairway, and should be passed close-to.

4. Buoys painted in red and black vertical stripes mark the ends of spits, and the outer and inner extremes of banks, shoals, or extensive reefs, where there is a navigable channel on either side.

5. Buoys painted red and black chequered mark rocks in the open sea, also obstructions of small extent having channels on either side of them. When marking the latter, they will be placed seaward of the danger.

6. When two chequered buoys-red and white and black and white-mark an obstruction, the red and white buoy marks the starboard side of the channel, and must be left on the starboard hand by vessels entering; and the black and white buoy marks the port side of the channel, and must be left on the port hand by vessels entering.

7. Wrecks will in all cases be marked by green buoys, with the word wreck painted on them in white letters; when a wreck lies in the open sea or in a position where there is a navigable channel on either side of it, the buoy will carry no other distinguishing mark, and will in every such case be placed seaward of the wreck.

The numbers on wreck buoys will be painted in white, and placed above the word wreck.

Wreck buoys marked with an even number must be left on the starboard hand by vessels entering. Wreck buoys marked with an odd number must be left on the port hand by vessels entering.

NOTE. All other distinguishing marks to buoys will be in addition to the foregoing, and where such are employed, a particular description of them will in each case be given in the published List of Chinese Lighthouses, &c.

Each buoy will have an iron plate on its outside, above the water-line, with the name of its district and station (as given in the published List) stamped thereon in English and Chinese, to insure its identification if found adrift.

BEACONS.

1. Beacons coloured red mark the starboard side of the channel, and must be left on the starboard hand by vessels entering.

2. Beacons coloured black mark the port side of the channel, and must be left on the port hand by vessels entering. 3. Beacons painted in red and black vertical stripes mark spits and the outer and inner extremities of banks, shoals, or extensive reefs, where there is a navigable channel on either side.

4. Beacons painted red and black chequered mark rocks in the open sea, also rocks of small extent having channels on either side of them.

5. When two chequered beacons-red and white and black and white-mark a rock or reef, the red and white beacon marks the starboard side of the channel, and must be left on the starboard hand by vessels entering; and the black and white beacon marks the port side of the channel, and must be left on the port hand by vessels entering.

NOTE. The above rules for painting beacons apply in each case to the body of the structure. When a beacon painted a single colour, either black or red, is surmounted by a distinguishing mark, such mark may be painted the same colour as the body of the beacon, or with that colour and white combined, or white alone.

When the body of a beacon is painted in two colours, the same colours only may be used for the mark surmounting it. Whenever a distinguishing mark is used, a particular description of it will be given in the published List of Chinese Lighthouses, &c.

Beacons on shore, to enable bearings to be taken, or to give lines of direction for crossing bars or entering rivers, harbours, &c., are to be painted so as to make them as conspicuos as possible. Red, black, and white are the only colours to be used, and a particular description of such marks will be given in the published List.

The following remarks relating to Lui-Kui islands, and to Kiusiu, have been received from Lieutenant A. Carpenter, commanding H.M. Surveying Vessel Magpie, 1881-2.

[All Bearings are Magnetic. Variation, 2° 35′ W. in 1882.]

LUI-KUI ISLANDS.

KAKIROUMA.*-The south-east and south coasts of this island are protected by a fringing reef extending one to 3 cables off shore, containing several boat harbours, and one junk harbour; the latter is situated 2 miles southward of caps Ototsino, near which is a village of some 1,500 huts, principally of a bee-hive pattern. The entrances through these reefe are marked by poles. Soundings of 30 to 40 fathoms, gravel, will be obtained at a distance of 4 cables from the reefs.

The island is hilly, wooded, and well cultivated. The north point is marked by two hills and a steep fall to the point from the outer one. The peaks are continuous to near the south point (Ohotabu) where the land is low. North of Black point on the western side of the island, is a high black cliff (400 feet); the cliffs then decrease to Ohotabu where they disappear.

AMAMI OÖ-SIMA (or HARBOUR) ISLAND is well cultivated with sugar, wheat, potatoes, bananas, and sago palm. Some of the cliffs are black giving an appearance of coal. The strata are in places much distorted, and the higher spurs denuded to sharp ridges. Paths are cut in every direction as in Japan.

The dialect and attire of the natives are Japanese. The houses are partly beehive pattern, and partly Japanese. Trade is carried on by schooners from Japan.

Oö Sima or Porpoise Strait. †-Directions.-Entering from eastward, choose a mid-channel course through the strait, observing that the north shore has the least number of sunken rocks off it. A bank of 6 to 7 fathoms, coral and hard ground, lies 11⁄2 miles from this entrance, but westward, the strait has a mid-channel depth of 25 to 50 fathoms. This bank is not safe to anchor upon, as not only is the bottom hard, but it is subject to tide whirls.

"

A depth of 160 fathoms, coral sand, will be found 5 miles off the eastern entrance to Oö-Sima (Porpoise) strait, and 100 fathoms gravel, one and a half miles off the western entrance.

Anchorage.-At the anchorage formerly marked on the plan, on the north shore 3 miles from the east entrance, the bottom is sand, but the 10 fathoms line of soundings is within 2 cables of the shore, so that in the event of a strong gust down the hills a vessel is liable to drag her anchor.

Kuji Mura Bay (the site of the observation spot), has anchorage for two vessels at single anchor in 10 and 12 fathoms. The bottom is fair holding ground, being a mixture of mud, broken coral and gravel.

Probably no anchorage in this strait would be secure for a vessel during a typhoon.

HANCOCK BAY, ‡ on the western side of Amami-Oo-Sima or Harbour island, is about 6 miles deep.

Sots-taka-saki, the south-west point of the bay, may be distinguished on approaching by a large land slip on its northern side, which gives it the appearance of a red cliff; the rocky islet off it is small, and not seen till close in.

Outer point, from the westward, is a remarkable conical shaped peak, and has the appearance of an island. Fortune point. One cable N.W. of Fortune point, a depth of 63 fathoms, rock, was found, with deep water close to, it is therefore to be avoided, as rocks may exist in the vicinity.

The Fairway up the bay to the anchorage off Asken-saki, is free from danger, but the outlying points should be avoided as they all appear to have ledges extending from them, from a half to one cable distance.

Anchorages. Large ships may anchor in safety on a line between Tree point and Observation point, in 18 fathoms, mud, care being taken to avoid the reef which extends three-quarters of a cable southward of Tree point. Small vessels may anchor in Curlew bay, and between Pillar and Lava points.

Supplies are not plentiful, though fowls, eggs, goats, and pigs, may be had in small quantities. Sago, rice, and sugar cane are the principal products.

There are about 100 Japanese on Harbour island.

Tides. It is high water, full and change, at 7h. 30m. Springs rise 7 feet. §

KIUSIU.

NAGASAKI. ||—Dock.—In April 1882, there were depths of 27 to 37 feet, at high water spring tides immediately off this dock, and the bottom runs level to the north-eastward.

A bank with 18 feet at high water, runs out 14 cables E.S.E. of the south frontage of the dock, and this rises to a ridge of from 8 to 14 feet at high water. A post marks the shore end of the ridge which sometimes dries, and a red pear shaped buoy the outer end. The dock should therefore be approached from northward of East.

A ridge of 24 feet at high water, existed across the actual entrance, 20 yards outside the caisson, but this was being deepened to 27 feet.

A red mooring buoy is moored in 34 feet at low water springs, and a vessel 400 feet long, would just swing clear of the bank at half tide.

WEST COAST OF KOREA.

The following information relating to the entrance to Salee river, approach to Séoul, Prince Imperial Archipelago, and Prince Jerome gulf, is the result of a preliminary examination måde by Lieutenant R. F. Hoskyn, H.M. surveying vessel Flying Fish, 1882.*

[All Bearings are Magnetic. Variation 4° 35′ W. in 1882.]

APPROACHES TO SALEE RIVER.

Shoals. A depth of 2 fathoms was obtained, S. by W. W., distant 10 miles from the south point of Sho-tung-tau, or Sho-Chung-tau island.

A depth of 1 fathoms was obtained, N.W. W., distant 63 miles from the summit of Moulaku-tau island.

A bank of 1 fathoms lies E. by N., distant 4 miles from the summit of Moulaku-tau island, and apparently extends for a considerable distance in the direction of the island.

A bank of 1 to 2 fathoms, extends W. by S. about 3 miles from the south point of Whitthall group. Between this bank and the bank E. by N. of Moulaku-tau, there is a depth of 2 to 23 fathoms.

Between the south point of Whitthall group and the islet off the north-west point of Tcha-oul-to Marolles islands, there is a depth of from 16 to 20 fathoms. Shoal water extends from the Whitthall group to Richy island.

A bank, dry in places, extends 6 miles N.E. by E. & E. from the islet off the north-west point of Tcha-oul-to. The north-east extreme of this bank lies 24 miles S.W. by S. of the south point of Richy island. Between this bank and the shoal water lying between Whitthall group and Richy island, is a straight channel, 12 miles wide, with depths from 8 to 10 fathoms.

Directions.-Approaching Salee river by this route, caution is necessary in crossing the bar between Moulaku-tau and Whitthall group.

When about one mile south of the south point of Whitthall group, shape a course E. by N. N., to pass half a mile south of Philip island, and when the western part of Richy island bears North, alter course to East, to pass southward of Round island, at the distance of a quarter to half a mile. From Round island to Rose island the existing chart will be found a sufficient guide.

BORNEO, NORTH-EAST COAST.

The following information relating to the north-east coast of Borneo, from Mallawallé island to Sandakan harbour, has been received from Lieutenant R. Hoskyn, commanding H. M. Surveying Vessel Flying Fish, 1881-2.

[All bearings are Magnetic. Variation 2° 0' E. in 1882.]

Coast.-The north-east coast of Borneo, between Silk island in Mallawallé channel, and Sandakan harbour, is generally low, densely wooded, intersected by numerous rivers and streams, and for a considerable distance from the shore the water is shallow and abounds with coral reefs.

As it would be impracticable from any mere written description, to navigate with safety among the numerous dangers which lie eastward of Mallawallé island, it will be sufficient to describe the principal dangers, the appearance of the various islands and objects which present themselves as marks, and the routes usually adopted by mariners acquainted with the coast; for further information the charts must be referred to.

*

EGERIA ROCK, in the Mallawallé channel, was found to lie 24 miles S.W. by W. of the small islet off the west end of the island of Mallawallé. This rock, almost in mid-channel, is composed of two small heads of coral close to each other, and has less than 6 feet on it at low water, with a depth of 8 to 9 fathoms close to, all round.

Tide rips.-A. heavy tide rip was observed about 7 miles westward of Egeria rock, and 34 miles from the north coast of Borneo. The boats were sent to examine it, but owing to the strength of the wind and current at the time, no satisfactory results were obtained.

LIN-GI-SAN.-A chain of remarkable rocks 25 to 30 feet high, lying about N.N.E. E., distant 14 miles from the north-east point of Bankoka.

Passage reef.-At the distance of 14 miles N.E. by N. of Lin-gi-san rocks, water spring tides, is easily distinguished, and may be passed in safety on either side. which is a small sand cay, lies 3 miles E. S., of Passage reef.

lies Passage reef; it is awash at low- Another reef, awash at low water, on

Clearing mark.-Banguey peak in line with west extreme of West island, Mallawallé, leads midway between these reefs.

Mandiralla, an island about half a mile in length east and west, is surrounded by a coral reef which, on the north and east sides, extends to a distance of about three-quarters of a mile.

It is densely wooded, the tops of the trees being 144 feet high. Foul ground extends about 3 miles E.S.E. of Mandiralla. Bankoka Hill, is a conspicuous, wooded hill, 587 feet high.

KUKUBAN is a sand cay situated on the south-west part of a coral reef of about half a mile in diameter; it is covered with trees 70 feet high.

Rocks.-Southward of Kukuban are two dangerous rocks; the northern lies S.E. by S. 1 miles from Kukuban, with 6 feet water on it, and can generally be seen from the mast-head. The southern rock, lying S. by E. & E., distant 2 miles from Kukuban, has less than 6 feet water on it, and is very difficult to see. Much caution is therefore necessary when navigating in this neighbourhood.

TANI-BOUNGAAN is a thickly wooded island of considerable extent, about 4 miles south-east of Bankoka hill. Bush island is a sand cay on which are a few bushes, the tops of which are about 10 feet high.

Foul ground.-Much foul ground exists between Mandiralla, the coast of Bankoka, Tani-boungaan, and Bush island. TIGABU is an island about a mile in length, and densely wooded, the tops of the trees being 227 feet high.

Reefs, extend about 3 miles in a north-easterly direction from Tigabu island. Between Tigabu and Kukuban are two reefs which are easily seen from the mast-head.

Tibakkan.—Situated about 2 miles north of the west point of Tigabu island is a sand cay covered with trees 108 feet high. Dangers extend 11⁄2 miles in a north-easterly direction from this island.

Tamboulian, Bu-a-ning, and the adjacent reefs form the south-eastern boundary of the Mallawallé eastern dangers. The channels between the Mallawallé eastern dangers, Tibakkan and its surrounding dangers, and Tigabu with its reefs, are each about a mile in width, and may be navigated with safety.

N.E. and S.W. BLUFFS.-Are two prominent headlands on the west coast of Jam-bangan. The former is 442 feet high, and the latter somewhat less.

From the coast of Jam-bangan, reefs and dangers extend to a distance of about 5 miles. On these reefs are many sand cays, two of which, Mabahōk and Kalangaan, covered with trees, are especially conspicuous; the former is 84 feet, and the latter 80 feet high.

SIPEENDUNG lies about 4 miles E. by S. & S. of Tigabu; it is a sand cay covered with bushes, the tops of which are about 20 feet high. Dangers extend south and south-west of this island, nearly three quarters of a mile, and for about 23 miles in a N.N.E. direction the soundings are irregular, varying between 4 and 12 fathoms. On the north-west side dangers extend 14 miles.

Between the Sipeendung danger and the Tigabu reefs, there is a clear passage 11⁄2 miles wide.

One and a half miles south-west of Sipeendung is a small group of reefs, between which and the dangers south and south-west of Sipeendung, is a clear passage three quarters of a mile wide.

SANDY ISLAND is a small sand cay which sometimes covers; it lies about 4 miles S.E. by E. of Sipeendung. Reefs.-Between Sandy island and Sipeendung is a reef which is easily seen from the mast-head. One and three- quarter miles S.W. of Sandy island is a patch of 4 fathoms, between which and Sandy island, there is a patch of 7 fathoms, and the soundings are somewhat irregular. Three quarters of a mile south-east of Sandy island is another patch of 4 fathoms. †

A Reef which has not been examined lies 7 miles N.E. by N. N. of Sandy island. LEONAN is a sand cay 5 miles S. E. of Sandy island, which also sometimes covers. It is situated on, and about one mile from the north-east end of an extensive chain of reefs which lie in an E.N.E. and W.S.W. direction.

Reefs.-North-eastward of Leonan cay lie two reefs, the first distant 3 miles, and the second about 4 miles. Between the first of these and the reef on which Leonan is situated, is a clear channel nearly 2 miles wide.

Two miles N.W. of Leonan is a patch of 2 fathoms.

BILLEAN.-Situated 10 miles north-castward of Torongohak point is a sand cay on which are a few bushes about 38 feet high. It is surrounded by coral reefs and dangers which extend in a north-easterly direction nearly 4 miles.

Billean North Dangers.-Eight miles north of Billean, and about the same distance east of Leonan cay, is an extensive group of coral reefs. As these dangers have not been completely examined they should be carefully avoided.

Tagypil is a densely wooded and very conspicuous island situated 42 miles S.W. by S. of Billean cay; the tops of the trees are 184 feet high.

Bankuruan Cays.-Are two small sand cays covered with bushes. Billean, Tagypil, Bankuruan, and the mainland are almost connected by a chain of coral reefs.

Cay.-Five miles S.E. by S. S. of Billean is a large and conspicuous sand cay.

The soundings

LANKAYAN is a sand cay covered with trees 100 feet high, and is surrounded by a coral reef. for about 4 miles north-north-eastward are irregular, varying from 4 to 15 fathoms, one patch of 3 fathoms existing 3 miles N. by E. of the north point of the cay.

Kestrel Shoal. This shoal, situated 4 miles east of Lankayan, and over which H.M.S. Kestrel passed in the year 1879, is found to have 2 fathoms least water.*

BO-ANN, the northern of a chain of islands which run in a N.N.E. direction from the mainland, is about one mile in length N.E. and S.W., 192 feet high, surrounded by a coral reef, and its lower parts are densely wooded.

Both Lihiman and Bo-ann are mud volcanoes, which appear to have been active within the last few years.

Islet.—Half a mile N.E. of Lihiman is a small islet with which it is connected by a coral reef. LANGAAN is a small wooded island 120 feet high, situated on the south-west edge of an extensive coral reef. Within a radius of 3 miles, north and east of Langaan, the soundings are irregular, varying between 6 and 18 fathoms.

Great and Little Bakkungaan are two wooded islands 190, and 157 feet high; they are surrounded by numerous coral reefs.

Silingaan is a small wooded island 137 feet high. About one mile east of Silingaan, is a reef on which is a sand cay, awash at high water.

Gulisaan lies about 14 miles S. by W. of Silingaan; on it is a clump of conspicuous trees 76 feet high.

LIBARRAN is a low wooded island about 11⁄2 miles in length, E.N.E. and W.S.W.

Low island is merely a clump of mangroves, on the reef extending from the mainland.

Pulo Tikus is a wooded pyramidical island, 234 feet high.

CLOTILDE ROCK.-A small coral reef, part of which is about 2 feet above high water, there is about 20 fathoms of water close to, all round it.

Laurel rock, in lat. 6° 9′ 30′′ N., long. 118° 29′ 0′′ E., is 6 feet above high water.

Baguan is a densely wooded island 228 feet high.

TAGANAC.—This island is about one mile in length, N.N.E. and S.S.W., and is surrounded by a coral reef; it is densely wooded, the tops of the trees being 554 feet high.

Taganac patches.-Irregular soundings, varying from 5 to 14 fathoms, were found to exist between 3 and 6 miles W. by N. of the north point of Taganae, this position is occasionally marked by tide ripples.

Caution.-Commander C. Johnstone, H.M.S. Egeria reports having obtained a cast of 4 fathoms "with Taganac island, bearing S. 48° E., Bahala bluff S. 11° W., and Baguan island S. 74: E., it was apparently, of some extent, to the "westward of this."

This shoal was not found by the Flying Fish, but the neighbourhood was but partially examined.

Gubbins reef is a dangerous patch of coral with about 6 feet water on it, lying 7 miles W. S. of the south point of Taganac island, and 11 miles N. by E. E. of Bahala north point. ‡

BAHALA. -An island about two miles in length, north and south, lying in the entrance to Sandakan harbour. The northern part of it is low, the southern rises in two conspicuous hills 643, and 544 feet high, these slope gradually to the westward, but their eastern faces are imposing precipices.

Nunuyon Laut and Nunuyon Derat are two low wooded islands, lying about 2 miles north-west of Bahala; they are almost connected with the mainland.

SANDAKAN HARBOUR.-Of this magnificent harbour, only the part north of Pulo buy has been examined. This portion of it lies in a N.E. and S.W. direction, and open to the N.E.

At the entrance, between Bahala and Towsan Dooyon, it is 14 miles wide, from which place it gradually increases in width, forming a spacious basin of rather more than 3 miles diameter.

Three-peaked hill. The nothern shore is hilly; two of these hills are very conspicuous from seaward;` one, on the point south-west of Bahala, being 674 feet high; the other, a three-peaked hill, is 844 feet high, and both, like Bahala, slope gradually on the western side and are somewhat precipitous on the eastern.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 20TH JANUARY, 1883.

Towsan Dooyon, forming the eastern side of the harbour, is low and densely wooded; a shoal of considerable extent runs north-eastward from Towsan Dooyon.

Elopura, the principal town, is built on the north shore, three-quarters of a mile from the point. In the early part of 1881, the population was about 800, composed principally of Malays, Chinese, and Sulus.

Dangers.-The only danger is the Atjeh rock, lying three cables S.E. of the end of the wooden pier at Elopura; it has 2 fathoms of water on it at low water springs. There was a small black buoy on it in 1881.

Anchorage. The most convenient anchorage is from half to three-quarters of a mile south of the town, in 8 or 9 fathoms mud.

Supplies. No fresh provisions could be procured in Sandakan in 1881. Water is plentiful and good. Excellent fire-wood was obtained at the rate of seven or eight dollars per thousand pieces; (one thousand pieces were found to be equal to about 24 cwts. of coal,) and occupied a space of 240 cubic feet.

MALLAWALLÉ CHANNEL TO SANDAKAN HARBOUR.

Directions. The route most commonly adopted by vessels trading on this coast, is that through the Mallawallé Channel, thence south of Kukuban, Tigabu, and Sipeendung, north of Leonan, passing midway between it and the small reefs north-eastward. From this position a course may be shaped to pass about 4 or 5 miles north of Billean.

This route is probably the shortest; the principal difficulties are the two isolated rocks south of Kukuban, and the narrowness of the channel south of Sipeendung. The dangers south of Kukuban may be avoided by adopting the route north of Kukuban and the reef lying É.S.E. of it, and the either proceed south of Tigabu and Sipeendung as before, or through the channel between Tigabu and Tibakkan, north of Tigabu reefs; thence north of Sipeendung, east of Sandy island, passing through the channel between Leonan and the reef north-eastward of it, with due care but little difficulty will be found in navigating these channels.

Most of the dangers are easily seen from the masthead, except when the sun is right ahead, and the numerous islands and wooded cays afford excellent marks for bearings. It will generally be found advisable to take the channel next north of ̧ Leonan, as from this position, Tagypil will be distinctly visible, and shortly afterwards Billean; whereas by taking a more northern route, there is practically nothing to guide the navigator, and he will probably get foul of the North Billean Dangers.

Pass Billean island, at a distance of from 4 or 5 miles, Lankayan also should be given a berth of about 5 miles. Having passed Lankayan, no difficulty will be experienced in making Sandakan, by passing well northward of Bo-aan and Langaan islands, thea between Taganac and the Taganac patches, all dangers will be avoided, and a straight course may be shaped for the mouth of the harbour.

Caution.-It should be borne in mind, that no reliance can be placed on the position of Sand cays which have no vegetation on them; the action of the sea frequently causes them to shift considerably and even disappear.

Tides. At Sandakan, it is high water, full and change, at Oh. Om. Springs rise 6 feet 9 in. Neaps vary from one foot, to 4 feet.

At Tigabu, it is high water, full and change, at 11h. 38m.; springs rise 6 feet 6 in.; neaps vary between 0 feet 10 in. and 2 feet 6 in.; at both places the tides during neaps are exceedingly irregular.

In the Mallawallé channel, the flood was observed to run to the eastward and the ebb to the westward, and at springs had a velocity of about 24 knots.

On the coast between Mallawallé and Sandakan, no regular tidal stream was perceptible, but when the N.E. monsoon blew steadily, there appeared to be a constant set to the N.W.

Carpenter range. The coast near Nau-sa bay is low and wooded, rising gradually to the Carpenter range, the summit of which, is a high flat hill visible from near cape Cami.

Ooshek hill is an isolated peak westward of mount Carpenter, and from the vicinity of Tong-chong bay, appears like a round islet on the horizon.

GUIE-CHAU ISLAND.-The Gulf north-east of Guie-chau is shallow, and many fixed fishing stakes may be seen, some in 9 fathoms, and a few even in 12 fathoms water. There is no reason to suspect shoal water on meeting with them, but irregular and shallow soundings do exist eastward of a line drawn from Kwan-tau point (Pakhoi), to Mongtau ledge.

Discoloured patches of small diameter having an appearance of shoal water are very common between Guie-chau and Pakhoi. They are only detached mud whirls, or weed patches.

Current.-When the current is westerly in Hainan strait, there is an easterly and north-easterly set near Guie-chau

island.

Chai-une island, except from eastward, shows a high bold cliff at its west extreme, above which is the summit of the island (500 feet high).

HAINAN ISLAND, EAST COAST.

TY-CHAU OR TINHOSA island, is 23 miles in extent in a N.N.W. and S.S.E. direction, and formed by two hills united by a sandy isthmus which partly covers at high water springs, and from bearings of about N.E. by E. and S.W. by W. appear as two islands. The southern hill (1,083 feet high)'is'in lat. 18° 39′ 50′′ N., long. 110° 28′ 0′′ E., very bold and is higher than any other summit on this part of the coast. The northern hill has two summits about half the height of the other. They are covered with thick foliage chiefly pandanus and palmettos.*

A sandy spit with 3 fathoms on it least water, lies 6 cables S.W. of the north extreme of the island, and is 5 cables long in a north-east and south-west direction. There are soundings of 5 to 7 athoms north-west and south-west of it.

R

Directions.-Anchorage.-Tinhosa south hill is steep-to on its south and east sides, and a vessel may stand in westward of the island, until the sand isthmus bears N.E., when steer for it, and anchor in 6 fathoms sand, as soon as the western points of the north part of the island are in line.

Tinhosa island has risen in importance, as an anchorage or refuge during strong N.E. Monsoon, since steam vessels have adopted the direct route from Singapore to Hongkong. It affords a perfect lee, and is the last anchorage at hand before a vessel leaves the friendly shelter of the coast, and steers out for Hongkong. It must not, however, be used as a typhoon harbour, for it is open to the southward. The German steamer Quinta, took refuge here during a typhoon in 1881, and on the wind shifting was driven ashore.

Route. If coasting up under the lee of Hainan island, a steamer should pass midway between Nankin island and Mun-chau coast, then giving a wide berth to Green point which is foul for a distance of 11⁄2 cables, stand over for the centre of Tinhosa, and when within a quarter of a mile of it, stand to N.N.W., keeping at that distance from the island until the spit is passed.

Green point consists of a long range of low hills terminating in a cliff, off which a shoal extends about 1 cables. The coast, from Green point, trends N.E. N., 12 miles to False point, showing a flat country faced with sand beach, with here and there hills rising like islands on the coast, Some of these hills project seaward, and form shelter for junks during the N.E. Monsoon. Baker Hill, one of these, has a small pagoda north-west of it.

Round island, (340 feet high,) and about 200 yards in diameter, lies 9 miles, N.E. N. of Green point, and a rock awash at low water lies half a cable's length S.E. of it.

False Tinhosa is an islet 150 feet high, off False point, and from a S.S.E. or N.N.W. bearing, a pillar rock shews at its eastern extreme. A rock (10 feet high) stands on the end of a ledge running out N.N.W. of False Tinhosa. There is little or no shelter under this island.

The Coast. From False point, which is 494 feet high, the coast trends northward nearly straight for about 15 miles, where another point projects, having hills behind it. At 61⁄2 miles from False point, two black rocks, 20 to 30 feet high, guard the entrance to a small river where there are cocoa nut plantations. The country is flat with a few small hills dotted about, and there is deep water within 2 miles of the shore as far as the two black rocks; but, north of these, breakers com- mence, extending half a mile off shore up to the next point. There was no other islet seen up to lat. 19° 04′ N.

TONCON is a dark coloured mountain, from which a point with three or four hill-rocks stretches 21⁄2 miles to S.S.E. A cluster of rocks above water, one of which is 15 feet high, extend half a mile from the point. It does not appear that there is proper shelter under the point in a strong monsoon, for when the Magpie visited it, the swell was rolling in, and breaking heavily along the whole line of shore, and several rocks just above water were seen in the most sheltered portion. The bay was also full of discoloured patches.

Caution. If standing northward by night along this coast, give Toncon a wide berth as there is always a set on to

the shore.

Mofou point.f-Owing to the continual thick weather during the N.E. monsoon, Mofou point is frequently difficult to distinguish by vessels making it from north-eastward. It may be recognised by a conspicuous conical grave close to its extreme. Also, the hills west of Mofou point are of a raddish soil whilst those southward of the point are higher, and covered with black patches. A reef fringes the coast to the southward.

DIRECTIONS.-Vessels bound through Hainan strait from eastward, are recommended to make for North bank, as the soundings give good indications when approaching it, and when their position is determined, either of the channels can be taken.†

Captain Marsden, of steam vessel Kang-chi, who has used these channels on more than fifty runs from Hongkong, states that he steers for North bank, picks up the 20 fathoms line by sounding, and if dusk or thick, runs 5 miles pass it, when he turns north or south to feel for one of the banks. Having picked up a bank he steers through, generally sighting Hainan head.

Vessels bound from Hainan strait to Hongkong finding the monsoon heavy, may, on clearing the banks, shape course under fore and aft sails for Tien-pak, on nearing which, the wind and sea usually moderate. They should then pass north- ward of 'Round island by day, or outside Mandarin's Cap by night, and close past Wy-caup, when they can haul up for Great Ladrone island. Fine weather will generally be experienced between Nauchau and St. John islands.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 20TH JANUARY, 1883.

HAINAN ISLAND, SOUTH AND WEST COASTS.

YU-LIN-KAN-BAY.*—During the N.E. monsoon, the wind blows from E.N.E. right across the bay, so that after rounding cape Bastion, a vessel will fetch into the inner harbour. The holding ground in the bay is good.

Tides. During single day tides, for time of high water, calculate from a high water full and change of 9h. 05m., p.m., low water being at 9h. 05m., a.m.

SAMA BAY.-East island, is low and long, whether viewed from southward or westward. West island is 200 feet high and pointed.

Horn Mountain, 3,160 feet high, is very conspicuous from eastward, and has a sharp knob on its summit. From westward it looks high but well rounded.

GREAT CAPE,-rock.-A dangerous rock which covers and uncovers, lies S.W. distant 31⁄2 miles from Great cape. There is deep water between it and the cape.

YAI-CHU BAY.-Snake point, the west limit of Yai-chu bay, lies 10 miles W.N.W. of Great cape, having at its extreme two hummocks, 90 feet high, which shew open when viewed from S.E. or from W.S.W. The high land closes the shore at this point in one or two peaks, and then recedes and forms a background to the level plain of Yai-chu, which appears to be fertile and well watered, closing the coast again at Great cape which is bold with a flat summit 1,740 feet high, with a slight saddle in it.

Islets.-Off Snake point are two islets, Mud islet, 223 feet high, and Button islet, which is conical, 256 feet high. There are no other islets in the bay.

Maddock rock, which covers and uncovers, lies 2 cables N.E. of Button islet.

Winds. When within 5 or 6 miles of this part of the coast,

the N.E. monsoon blows from N.E. to E.N.E. off Yu-lin-kan,

Light and variable off Snake point,

with a tendency to blow off the land at night.

North to N.N.W. off S.W. point,

North to N. by E. off Shoal point,

The Coast from Snake point, strend in a W.N.W direction for 20 miles to Inkohai village which marks S.W. point. The low coast line forms a long bay, fronted with sand beach 20 to 40 feet high. Two hills, False (400 feet), and Flat (700 feet high), form a foreground near Three-tree anchorage, which is 2 miles south-east of S.W. point.

South Bank, having probably less than 2 fathoms, sand, occupies the centre of this long bay, and is connected with the beach. To pass outside it, do not bring Mud island to southward of the Great cape saddle.

S.W. POINT, situated in lat. 18° 31′ 15′′ N., long. 108° 41′ 0′′ E., is bare and sandy, and the country is flat; but towards S.W. hill, foliage commences, and cocoa nut plantations are common. This appearance is carried nearly up to Shoal point, where sand again predominates, and from here to Pyramid point, which lies 10 miles northward, it is a long sand plain, with occasional scrub and lagoons.

Inkohai Village, or Ng-go-hai, on S.W. point, is built of stone. There are numerous fishing stakes off it. Three low trees on the sand beach, south eastward of it, mark the sheltered anchorage during N.E. monsoon.

S.W. Bank, with about 3 feet water on it, is situated S. 73° W., distant 43 miles from S.W. point, and is 11⁄2 miles long in a N.W. by N. and S.E. by S. direction. It generally breaks, and is steep-to on its off shore side, but it is connected by a shallow ridge to a shoal of about 6 feet N.W. by W. W., distant 34 miles.†

Outer Bank, (sand) in lat. 18° 37′ N., long. 108° 23′ E., lies N. 75° W., about 18 miles off S.W. point, and is a dangerous isolated shoal of about 11⁄2 fathoms. It is steep-to both northward and southward, and appears to be the end of a ridge that extends from S.W. Bank. It breaks in a moderate swell but would not show in smooth water.

A shoal with about one fathom on it, part of a ridge, lies N. 86° W., distant 74 miles from South West point.

A shoal of about 3 feet, lies S. 73° W., distant 41⁄2 miles from South West point, and is one-and-a-half miles long, in a N.W. by N. and S.E. by S. direction.

A shoal of about 3 feet, lies N. 28° W. distant 18 miles from South West point, and another with the same depth, N. 34 W., distant 5 miles.‡

A shoal breaks about half a mile N.W. W. of Inkohai village, half a mile off shore.

A shoal breaks 5 miles N.W. by N. of Inkohai village and 2 miles off the adjacent shore.

Shoal point. From Inkohai village, the coast trends in a general northerly direction to Shoal point, which is 22 miles N. by W. of Inkohai village. Shoal water named Kum-ing-sha extends for several miles off Shoal point, and blocks navigation except for junks.

Caution. This part of the coast should not be approached from seaward within 8 miles, or in less water than 20

fathoms,

Directions.-If steering to north-westward and desirous of visiting Inkohai village, steer in for mount Etna in line with the village N.E. N.; or if Etna is obscured, steer in with the east end of village in line with Flat hill N.E. † E.

False hill in line with village leads on to S.W. bank.

Deep water exists between S.W. bank Inkohai village and is carried up 3 miles towards the sand bank situated 5 miles N.W. by N. of S.W. point. It is probable there is a channel leading to seaward from here, passing to northward of Outer bank, but it has not been surveyed, and should on no account be attempted without a pilot.

If it is desired to visit the coast between S.W. point and Shoal point, a passage will be found for vessels, midway be- tween the sand bank and the point 3 miles north of the village, after passing which, they may coast up in about 3 fathoms, at a distance of 2 to 4 miles from the beach.

Mount Etna (4,970 feet) is a very remarkable summit. It shows as a lofty precipitous crater from S.E. or N.W., but viewed from westward, it appears like a single pinnacle. It can be seen plainly from Yu-lin-kan or from Back-li bay. The mountain ranges are continuous from the vicinity of Tinhosa island round to S.W. hill, which marks the extreme of the Etna range.

Several fine valleys occur, notably at the head of the Yu-lin-kan inner harbour, at Yai-Chu bay and one west- ward of Snake point. From S.W. hill, northward as far as Hoita, the ranges lie far inland, and although they close the coast somewhat at that port, from thence they turn away sharp eastward leaving only detached hills between them and the north coast.

BACK-LI BAY.-Pyramid point, the south limit of Back-li bay, is a low flat sandy point bearing a steep rock 138 feet high, the summit of which is in lat. 19° 4′ 30′′ N., long. 108° 36′ 30′′ E.

Anchorage.-Pyramid point affords protection from S. W. monsoon for small vessels, in 3 fatlioms, mud, 9 cables N.E. of the rock. A reef fringes the shore at a distance of 2 cables from high water mark, and 3 fathoms will be carried close up to it.

The coast towards Shoal Rock.-A rock 10 feet above high water, shows about 2 miles south of Pyramid point.

miles. point is one long sand beach, nearly straight, and off it there is shoal water for many

CHUN-YAN BAY is small and shallow, with a river entering it by several mouths. There is a walled town 4 miles south of Bluff point.

Bluff Point (120 feet high), is bold and rocky, with 8 fathoms close to its north shoulder, shallowing to 4 fathoms off the shoulder entering Chun-yan bay. There is a high sand cliff on both faces, that on the south face, falling abruptly into Chun-yan bay. This declivity kept on a bearing of N.E. by E. E. will, allowing for tide, lead between the northern and southern sand banks off this coast.

Banks.-The extent of the Northern bank is doubtful, as it seldom breaks, but the Southern bank stretches out from See-ku-sá sand point about 5 miles, shows discoloured, and breaks in a fresh breeze. Six fathoms will be found 6 miles off this point, 9 and 10 fathoms between the banks, and shoaling to 6 fathoms in Chun-yan bay.

There is probably shelter from S.W. monsoon immediately northward of Bluff point.

The Coast.-From Bluff point the coast trends N.E. by E. 15 miles to Hoita, commencing with a high sand beach and getting low and darker coloured towards Saddle hills, which are 1,060 feet high. Near Hoita the coast is foul.

HOITA* is very conspicuous with its white houses and junks, and the Saddle hills are the best guide from any dis- tance, they being the only isolated coast hills between Pingmar and Bluff point.

Anchorage.-Do not approach within a mile of the village without a pilot, but anchor in 7 fathoms with the small white fort bearing E.N.E.

The coast from Hoita trends N.N.E. for 7 miles to Flat point, which is comparatively high (200 feet), but level, and then turns into Chappoo bay.

CHAPPOO BAY.-The reef in the centre of the bay has a sand islet on it, 6 feet high.

Pillar Point.-A small pagoda stands low down near the point. High sand shows on both sides, the pillar being The small islet connected with Pillar point at low water only distinguishable from northward, when close in to the coast.

is 40 feet high.

Coast.-At the extreme of Pingmar point there is a pyramidal bluff 50 feet high. From this the coast is low, round a small open bay to Pillar point.

HAU-SUI BAY.-The land is low and flat all round the bay, but rises a little inland southward and south-eastward. Eight miles east of Pingmar point, is a cone shaped crater topped hill, (Koong-chin), 683 feet high.

Anchorage.-Enter the bay with Koong-chin hill, bearing S. by E. E., until Chun-kwan-yan (Stumba island), bears East, when haul up, keeping it a little on the port bow. Anchor in 4 fathoms, three-quarters of a mile S.W. by W. of the island.

Heong-pi.

Heong-Pi.-About 4 miles E.N.E. of Chun-kwan-yan island is a very small boat harbour formed by reefs called MOUNTAINS.-The Ng-Chi range (5,870 feet), pronounced Ung-Chee, signifies the Great Five Fingers, and This is not visible from seaward, though other ser- is named after one of them that has five remarkably steep peaks on it. rated peaks are frequently visible. They occupy the centre of the island, midway between False Tinhosa and Pyramid point, and the highest of them are usually visible from Hainan strait.

North of the Ng-chi range, the whole island is level, with here and there isolated hills.

The most remarkable of these,

is Dome (2,645 feet high), which appears from the northward like its name implies, but as a perfect sugar loaf from the westward.

Southward of these, range below range of hills, slope gradually to the south coast.

HAINAN STRAIT.

SOUTH SHORE.†-From Heong-pi, the coast trends in a curve 15 miles north-eastward to Western Cap, which is a conspicuous lump, like Mandarin Cap near Ching-mai point.

Reefs, some of which show at low water, fringe the shore as far as Western Cap, and this coast should not be approached within 2 miles, or in less than 10 fathoms. From the Cap, the coast turns south-eastward forming an open bay 6 miles in width, at the eastern end of which, Hong-pi-kok marks the vicinity of Maniu.

HOI-HOW BAY.-Backsha spit, has extended S. by W. W., 24 cables, and therefore should not be used as a leading mark.‡

NORTH SHORE.-Cape Cami,§ Tides.-It is high water full and change at cape Cami in the winter months at 2h. 45m. a.m.

Directions.-The banks westward of Hainan strait give plenty of warning by soundings, to vessels approaching from The widest passage is between the bank north-westward or westward, and but little warning by soundings, from eastward. with 18 feet on it, and Laamkoo, care being taken to keep at least 2 miles off the coast.

Vessels proceeding to Pakhoi from eastward, round cape Cami at a distance of 2 miles, and then haul up for Chai-une East or west currents of consi- island, sighting it, and then passing west of Guie-chau island before steering for Kwan-tau point, Pak-hoi.

Those bound to Hai-Phong, should make Bacht-long-vi and then the Norway islands. derable strength may be experienced on this track, but very little north or south set need be feared, unless the monsoon is very strong.

Vessels from the westward, should not attempt to make the strait on a dark night, as both coasts are low and dangerous. If, however, either coast is well aboard by dusk, a mid-channel course may be taken until the lights of Hoihow town or those of the vessels in the bay are sighted. The bay is frequently empty of vessels.

SOUTH COAST OF CHINA.

NAU-CHAU ISLAND.-Directions.-Approaching from north-eastward, Jacquelin hill will be first sighted, do not approach it within 9 miles, until it bears W. by N., by which time Nauchau island will be seen, when steer for the north point of that island.

Erratum.-In Hydrographic Notice, No. 13, of 1882. Page 4, line 22, for Noo-shik or Oo-skek hill which appears low and isolated, read Carpenter range will first appear, as a long flat hill, then the Shenwan range, &c.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial

practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

GAOL.

The following Rules are published under Section 6 of Ordinance 10 of 1858.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 25th January, 1883.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

Rules for the management of Prisoners employed on the Hongkong Public Works, and for the guidance and instruction of the Officers who shall have charge of those prisoners. Made by the Governor in Council under Section 6 of Ordinance 10 of 1858.

*

PRISONERS.

1.-The Prisoners shall be divided into parties of 12 men, and each party shall be known by its number as No. 1 Party, No. 2 Party, and so on.

2.-Each party shall be under the charge of an Assistant Turnkey armed with a short sword for his defence, and who shall have the number of his party on a badge affixed to his left arm; and the whole of the parties shall be under the charge of a Head Turnkey armed with sword and revolver, who shall be assisted by a Turnkey armed in the same manner.

3. The Prisoners will work in coupling chains of about 12 feet long, fastened to the prisoner by anklets and padlocks.

4. If the work is near the Gaol, the prisoners shall be marched in to their mid-day meal at 12 noon, but if at too great a distance from the Gaol, the meal will be sent to them.

5. The prisoners will breakfast at 6.20 A.M., and leave the Gaol for their work at 7 A.M., rest one hour for their mid-day meal from 12 to 1, and knock off work in the afternoon so as to reach the Gaol at 5 P.M. (9 hours daily including marching in and out.)

6.-On Saturdays the prisoners will work until 12 noon, and take their mid-day meal in the Gaol. 7.-They will have 1 pint of congee thickened with cheap meat served to them when they reach. the Gaol at 5 P.M., previous to being locked up for the night.

8.-No prisoner with a longer sentence than 8 years shall be sent out to work until he has served one third of such sentence, and no prisoner shall be sent out until he has completed either 4 months' penal labour, (shot drill and stone carrying, crank, &c.,) in the Gaol, or 6 months' separate confinement.

OFFICERS.

9. In addition to the Head Turnkey in charge of the District, the Turnkey to assist him, and the Assistant Turnkeys in direct charge of the parties, 3 or 4 Sikh Guards shall be posted in conspicuous positions round the works, armed with loaded rifles, to prevent escapes.

58

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH JANUARY, 1883.

10.-The Head Turnkey will be continually on the alert during the day, repeatedly visiting the parties in his district, and ascertaining that all is correct or otherwise. He will take discreet measures to prevent the escape of prisoners, and to effect their recapture if they are successful in escaping. He will carefully observe the officers under his charge, and report, weekly to the Superintendent of the Gaol, on their efficiency in the management of their parties. He will enter in a book the number of parties, number of prisoners, and the names of the officers under his charge, with the name of the district where working, and the description of labour. He will be responsible to the Surveyor General for all the tools used by the prisoners. He shall on no account allow people to loiter near the prisoners while at work, or to converse with the officers.

11.-The Turnkey shall consider himself to be under the command of the Head Turnkey, and shall assist him in the performance of his duties. He shall move about continually among the parties, keeping a watchful eye on both officers and prisoners. When needed, he shall take charge of detached parties, and shall at such times use great discretion in the disposal of his officers so as to prevent the escape of any prisoners, remembering that their safe custody should be his first care.

12.-The Assistant Turnkeys in charge of parties must remember always that the safe custody of the prisoners shall be their first care. They shall, therefore, place themselves when on the works so as at all times to command a good view of their men; they shall repeatedly count their prisoners during the day, and never turn their backs towards them, and shall on no account use a spade, pick, or any other tool, so as to place themselves at a disadvantage with the prisoners.

13.-They shall be careful to ascertain that the anklets, chains, and padlocks are in proper order, and minutely examine them before leaving the Gaol, when knocking off work for the mid-day meal, and before returning to the Gaol in the evening.

14.—In the event of a prisoner attempting to escape, the officer in charge of his party will blow his whistle to attract the attention of the other officers, and will then fall-in the remaining prisoners of his party and await instructions from the Head Turnkey.

15.-The Head Turnkey, the Turnkey, and the Sikh Guards will not fire at an escaping prisoner unless his escape cannot be prevented by any other means; and then only endeavour to disable him, remembering that the death of the man is to be avoided if possible.

16.--The Assistant Turnkeys will keep a book in which they will enter the numbers, names, and sentences of the prisoners of their respective parties, making special remarks as to the industry of each prisoner, and they will be responsible to the Head Turnkey for the tools used by their parties.

13. In pursuance of the warrant aforesaid, the Bailiff shall seize the moveable property found in or upon the house or premises mentioned in the warrant, and in the apparent possession of the person from whom the rent is claimed (hereinafter called the debtor), or such part thereof as may, in the Bailiff's judgment, be sufficient to cover the amount of the said rent, together with the costs of the said distress.

14. The Bailiff shall not seize :-

(a.) Things in actual use, in the hands of a person at

the time of seizure;

(b.) Tools and implements not in use, where there is other moveable property in or upon the house or premises sufficient to cover such amount and costs; (c.) Goods of temporary guests at an inn; (d.) Goods of lodgers at a furnished lodging house; (e.) The debtor's necessary wearing apparel;

(f) Goods in the custody of the law;

(g.) Goods delivered to a person exercising a public trade, to be carried, wrought, worked up, or ma- naged in the way of his trade or employ.

15. On seizing any property under section 13, the Bailiff shall make an inventory and appraisement of such property and shall give a copy of such inventory and appraisement notice in writing according to the form in Schedule D, or to the like effect, to the debtor or to any other person upon his behalf, in or upon the said house or premises.

16. The Bailiff shall, as soon as may be, file in the Court copies of the said inventory, appraisement and notice.

17. The Bailiffs and officers appointed to execute distress warrants may break open inner doors; and if denied admit- tance to any building as to which they have a warrant to distrain, after declaring their names and business; or if, after waiting a reasonable time, no person answers, or is in the building, they may apply to the Court for authority to break open outer doors and windows so far as may be necessary to enable them to execute the warrant.

18. The Court on being satisfied, on the affidavit of one of the officers having the warrant for execution, that there are no reasonable means of executing the warrant without breaking such outer doors or windows, may grant an order in writing, addressed to a Bailiff of the Court, authorizing him to break open, or have broken open, such doors and windows. Before executing such order, however, the Bailiff shall inform any persons or person in or about the build- ing, that he has such order and that he is about to act on it unless the doors or windows are opened.

19. The Bailiffs may impound or otherwise secure the property seized, in or on the house or premises, chargeable with the rent, or may remove the same.

PART III.

Of Application to discharge Distresses and of Compensation.

20. The debtor, or any other person alleging himself to be the owner of any property seized under this Ordinance, may, at any time within five days from such seizure, on twenty-four hours' notice to the party who obtained the warrant and to the Bailiff, setting out the facts on which the claim is founded, verified on affidavit, apply to the Court, to discharge or suspend the warrant or to release a distrained article; and the Court may discharge or suspend such warrant or release such article accordingly, upon such terms as it thinks just.

21. Upon any such application, the costs attending it and attending the issue and execution of the warrant, shall be in the discretion of the Court, and shall be paid as the Court directs.

22. If any claim be made to, or in respect of, any pro- perty seized under a distress warrant, or in respect of the proceeds or value thereof, by any person not being the debtor, the Registrar, upon the application of the Bailiff who seized the property, may issue a summons calling before the Court the claimant and the person who obtained the warrant, and thereupon any suit which may have been brought in respect of such claim shall be stayed, and the Court, on the proof of the service of such summons, and that the property was so distrained, may order the plaintiff to pay the costs of all proceedings in such suit after the service of such summons.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1883.

23. Every such claim shall be verified by affidavit or declaration setting out the facts on which it is founded. When so verified the Court shall adjudicate thereupon, and make such order between the parties in respect thereof, and of the costs of the proceedings, as it thinks fit; and such order shall be enforced as if it were an order made in a suit brought in such Court.

24. In any case under section 20 or section 22, the Court may, if a claim shall have been made therefor at the time of application, and if it appears to the Court that the landlord or Bailiff had no reasonable ground for believing that the goods were properly distrainable, award such com- pensation by way of damages to the applicant or claimant (as the case may be) as the Court thinks fit, and may for that purpose make any enquiry it thinks necessary; and the order of the Court, awarding or refusing such compen- sation, shall bar any suit in respect of injury caused by the distress.

25. The Court may in its discretion, at any time upon the application of the debtor and upon reasonable notice being given of the application to the party who obtained the warrant give time to the debtor to pay the rent due from him upon such terms as it may think just and reason- able.

PART IV.

Sale of Distresses.

26. In default of any order to the contrary, the distrained property shall be sold on the day mentioned in the notice of appraisement and sale hereinbefore referred to, and such sale shall be conducted at such a place and time and by such person as the Registrar may direct, whether by an auctioneer or a Bailiff of the Court and such auctioneer or such Bailiff shall on realizing, the proceeds, pay over the amount thereof to the Court, and such amount shall be applied, first in payment of the costs of the said distress, and then in satisfaction of the debt; and the surplus, if any, shall be returned to the debtor.

27. Provided that the debtor'may require that the sale shall take place in any other manner, than that directed by the Registrar, upon giving security for any extra costs or loss thereby, or that in the Registrar's opinion may be thereby, occasioned.

PART V.

Deserted Premises where no Distress left.

28. Where any immoveable property is held at a rack rent, or where the rent reserved shall be full three-fourths of the yearly value of the demised premises, and where neither the value of the premises by the year, nor the rent payable in respect of the tenancy by the year, shall exceed three hundred dollars, if the tenant shall be in arrears for two months, and shall desert the demised premises and leave the same uncultivated or unoccupied so as no suffi- : cient distress can be had to countervail the arrears of rent, it shall be lawful for the Court, at the request of the lessor or landlord or his agent and on information on oath, to issue its warrant authorizing any Bailiff to enter on the premises, breaking any doors, windows, or.gates if neces- sary; and if the premises are found to be deserted with no sufficient distress therein, to place the same in charge of a Bailiff and to affix a notice thereon, in a conspicuous place, that unless cause to the contrary be shown before the Court within ten days, the premises will be given over to the applicant; and if no such cause be shown, it shall be lawful for the Court, on proof of the fact of desertion, of non-payment of at least two months rent last due, of want of sufficient distress, and that the applicant is the lessor or landlord of the premises or entitled under this Ordinance to a distress warrant, to make an order directing a Bailiff to put the applicant in possession of the premises and the demise shall become void.

PART VI.

Rules as to Distresses.

29. Arrears of rent may be distrained for after the end or determination of any term or lease at will, in the same manner as if such term or lease had not been ended or determined; provided that such distress be made during the continuance of the possession of the tenant from whom such arrears became due.

J

31. If personal property, otherwise liable to distress for rent, shall, at the time of the issue of any distress warrant, or thereafter before seizure by the Bailiff under such war- rant be seized under any writ or warrant of the Supreme Court, the said Bailiff shall not seize such personal property, but shall return the warrant into Court and deliver copics thereof to the execution creditor or his agent and to the debtor either personally or by leaving the same at the place where the goods were seized, and such execution creditor or debtor or either of them may apply to the Court to discharge or suspend the warrant within the time and in the manner mentioned in section 20, and should no such application be made within the said time, the Registrar shall, out of the first money to be received by him from the officer executing such writ or warrant, pay over to the person obtaining such distress warrant the amount thereof, provided that if the amount mentioned in the warrant of distress shall exceed the amount due for six months rent, the Registrar shall pay the amount of rent due for six months and the costs and

no more.

32. If any execution shall be paid off after issue of a warrant of distress, the Bailiff shall immediately execute the warrant of distress.

Married women, with or without the concurrence of their husbands, for arrears of rent due on property held by them to their sole and separate use. 34. Where a right to distrain accrues to parties jointly interested, or together interested, in any premises such as Coparceners, Joint Tenants, Tenants in Common, Executors, Administrators, Trustees, Guardians, partners or otherwise, proceedings under this Ordinance may be taken by any one of such parties, in his own name and the name or names of those jointly or together interested with him, and the levy- ing of rent so distrained for shall be a complete discharge to the tenant, for the rent, or for so much thereof as may be so levied; and the parties so levying shall be liable to account to the parties having the interest jointly or together with them for all sums so levied.

35. Provided that if it should, in any particular case, appear to the Court or to the Registrar or Deputy Registrar, to be advisable so to do, the Court or Registrar or Deputy Registrar may require the party so applying to produce a written authority to distrain, signed by one or more of the persons jointly or together interested with him.

36. No property found at the time of distraint in or on any premises, as to which an arrear of rent is due, shall be removed from such premises without the consent of the person issuing the distress warrant, or by direction of the Registrar, till satisfaction is made, for the rent due if the arrear has accrued during the current tenancy, and if at any time such property would have been liable to distraint for rent under this Ordinance; and the landlord or lessor shall be entitled to require the Bailiff upon giving such Bailiff a sufficient indemnity to the satisfaction of the Registrar to follow the property if removed, and seize the same under the distress warrant, whether or not such property was afterwards dis- posed of by the owner by way of sale, exchange, mortgage, pledge or otherwise.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1883.

37. If the tenant or lessee, or person in possession or occupation, of any premises on which there is an arrear of rent due, recoverable by distress, shall remove, carry away, or cause or permit to be removed or carried away from the premises any moveable property liable to be scized for such rent, so as to prevent or hinder the Bailiff from distraining the same, it shall be lawful for the Court, on application verified by affidavit, to authorize the Bailiff, to whom the warrant of distress to distrain for the rent on such premises is addressed and the officers acting with him, to follow, and to take and seize such goods and chattels, as a distress for the said arrears of rent, wherever the same may be found, at any time within thirty days from the day of their removal, ex- clusive of the day of removal, and to deal with the said moveable property so removed in the same way as if it had been found on the premises, and if advisable so to do, to place the same again in the premises.

38. Provided that it shall be lawful for the Bailiff, with- out such authority to follow and seize any such property found by him in the act of being removed from any such premises, and before the same is placed in any other house. or building.

STAMP OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 4th January, 1883.

SIR, I have the honour to enclose the usual Annual Returns of Stamp Revenue for 1882.

Although these Returns shew a decrease of nearly $13,000 as compared with those for 1881, they cannot but be regarded as of an encouraging nature. The decrease in question is caused by a falling off of $18,534 on Conveyances, due no doubt to the collapse of the deplorable land mania, and another falling off of $5,276 on Bills of Exchange and Promissory Notes. But not only are these two decreases, amounting as they do to nearly $24,000, redeemed to more than half their extent by a general increase spread pretty evenly (except $4,077 on Bank notes) over the entire Schedule, but also the Collection for 1882 exceeds by more than $30,000 that for 1880, and is, except the entirely exceptional Collection of 1881, the largest annual amount ever accounted for by this Office. The totals for the last five years are as follows:--

1878, 1879,.

1880, 1881, 1882.

....

....

$128.519' .$116.043

.$127.623 average $136.457.

.$173.641 .$160.769

Some deductions should be made from the Total for 1882 on account of Court and Land fees, but I am unable to state their amount.

I have the honour to be,

The Honourable F. STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

MARINE COURT.

The following finding of a Marine Court appointed to enquire into the loss of the British Steamer Carisbrooke, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 17th February, 1883.

FINDING.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

1. We find that the British Steam-ship Carisbrooke, Official No. 65,463, of which MORRIS GEORGE SCOTT, Number of whose Certificate of Competency is 227, Penang, was Master, caught fire on the morning of the 27th January, 1883, while lying at anchor in the harbour of Victoria, Hongkong, and that the Ship was sunk in four fathoms water by means of opening the several cocks and valves in the bottom of the Ship.

2. We are of opinion that the fire originated in the Store-room, but there is no evidence to shew what caused it.

3. We are of opinion that the Master, MORRIS GEORGE SCOTT, committed a grave error in judg- ment in not making the signal for fire on board ship provided by the Harbour Regulations. Had the proper signal been made, assistance would most likely have been supplied by the several Ships of War in Port, and by the ships of the Mercantile Marine.

4. The Police were in good time at the fire and rendered very valuable assistance in getting the Passengers landed; the Chinese junkmen also rendered great help in lending their boats for that purpose. 5. We are of opinion that, with the exception mentioned in paragraph 3, the Master, Officers and Crew did all that lay in their power, for the preservation of the ship and passengers. Given under our hands at Hongkong, this Seventh day of February, 1883.

5. When a Steamer, or the smoke of a Steamer, is sighted, the Compass Bearing at the Yard Arm, and Distance off at the Mast Head, will be hoisted. If, when the vessel is made out, she is not a Mail Steamer, the Vessel's Distinguishing Flag will be substituted for the Compass Signal, and it will be kept flying until the Ship anchors. The Distance Signal will be kept up fifteen minutes after the Steamer is made out.

6. If the Steamer is a regular Mail Steamer a Gun will be fired, and a Ball over the English, French, or American Ensign, with the Distance off at that time, will be shown at the Mast Head. The Compass Signal and Symbol will be hauled down. The Ball and Ensign will be kept up until the vessel anchors. The Distance Signal will be kept flying for half-an-hour, and changed at each successive half hour to show the Distance off at those times. When the vessel is between Green Island and the North Point of Hongkong the Distance Signal will be hauled down. If the Mail Steamer is not in the Harbour when it is too dark to distinguish flags, a red light will be exhibited at the West Yard Arm, or a green light at the East Yard Arm until she anchors.

7. River Steamers will not be signalled. The approach of other Steamers from Macao or Canton will be made known by showing the National, or House Flag and Symbol at Yard Arm.

8. If a Flag showing that an Officer of high rank is on board an incoming vessel, a similar Flag will be shown above the Ball, or the Flag alone will be hoisted at the Mast Head.

9. The approach of Men-of-War and Sailing Vessels will be notified by their proper Symbols and National Colours, or House Flags, at the Quarter of the Yard, or at the Yard Arm.

Note. The Distances of vessels will be estimated from the Peak, and will be made by means of the Numerals which are attached to the letters in the table of Flags.

ITALY.

The following reports on the recent inundations in North Italy are published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 17th February, 1883.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

My Lord,

REPORTS ON INUNDATIONS IN NORTHERN ITALY.

No. 1.

Consul-General Colnaghi to Earl Granville.—(Received October 23.)

Florence, October 20, 1882.

Ir is impossible, at the present time, to estimate the damage done to the Venetian provinces by the recent inundations, some idea of the extent of which may be derived from the statement that two- thirds of Venetia are, or have been, under water.

During the first ten days of the month of September the weather was fine, with occasional refresh- ing rain. The official reports of the state of the country, including the provinces which were shortly to be so heavily tried, were satisfactory, the vintage promised well, and it was thought that the year 1882, if not among the most fortunate, might fairly be considered as good.

In the second decade of the month, however, a change came; there was a heavy and continuous rainfall, the amount of which, for Venetia and the Lombard Provinces of Brescia and Mantua, is noted below:-

On the 13th and 14th September snow fell on the St. Gothard and on the mountains about Lugano, Castasegna, Santis, Domodossola, &c. The average temperature in North Italy was between 14 and 18 degrees centigrade.

From the data obtained as to the quantity of rain on the North-eastern Alps, where the greatest fall occurred, the height of water may be estimated at 500 millim., equal to 1 cubic metre of water for every 2 square metres of superficial area. If to this be added the snow, which, rapidly melting under the influence of the prevailing southern currents, would have been alone sufficient on some points, especially in the absence of forests on the mountains, to produce floods, it is not astonishing that the inundations were of almost unexampled severity, exceeding those which occurred on previous occasions during the present century, particularly in 1801, 1823, 1868, 1872, and 1879. The present floods are said to bear the greatest resemblance to those of 1801.

The Adige began to rise on the 15th September; by the 17th the city of Verona was, in great part, under water. The Venetian plains are covered with a network of rivers, torrents, and canals, in almost every

instance raised above the level of the plain, which is protected from ordinary floods by embankments ("argini") between which the waters flow. These embankments, for some of the prin- cipal rivers, rise to the average height of 6 metres above the river-bed, though at certain points they are much higher, and are from 15 to 20 metres thick. The sudden rush of water from the hills proved too much for the works of defence; the embankments of the Adige were broken down in four separate places; elsewhere the rivers, torrents, and canals overflowed their banks, while in certain cases the dykes had to be cut, to avoid the more terrible consequences of the sudden inroad of an over- whelming body of water; railway and other communication was interrupted; bridges, houses, crops, and doubtless cattle, with, in happily but few instances, human beings, were swept away in helpless con- fusion; while the unhappy peasantry, in thousands, sought shelter on the embankments, or fled to the neighbouring towns and villages which still held their heads above water. The distress occasioned by

110 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1883.

this disaster is very great, and cannot be considered as temporary only. Public assistance and private charity in Italy have come in aid of the sufferers, but much still remains to be done to heal the wounds that the floods have inflicted, and foreign help would, doubtless, be most gratefully received. The sanitary condition of the inundated provinces may also give cause for anxiety.

In the midst of the sudden confusion caused by the inundations, the authorities of every grade appear to have done their duty, the conduct of the army being especially deserving of praise. Wherever life and property had to be saved, where provisions had to be carried, or where the embank- ments had to be defended, there the troops were to be found working with courage and abnegation under the command of their officers.

My Lord,

Consul-General Colnaghi to Earl Granville.—(Received October 26.)

Florence, October 23, 1882.

In continuation of my despatch of the 20th instant, relating to the recent inundations in North Italy, I have the honour to add some observations taken from an Italian periodical, "The Bulletin of the Triennial Society for the Promotion of Silviculture in Italy,"* on the augmentation of floods since the mountains have been disforested. The Society of which this "Bulletin "is the organ was founded by the Senator Torelli, author of the great map of the malaria in Italy, and it has at its head, as Honorary President, Signor Quintino Sella, the well-known Italian statesman. I have endeavoured to summarize, as briefly as possible, the writer's remarks, which he has to preface with the confession that the Society has failed to interest the Italian public in its object.

"The 'Bulletin' was founded for the purpose of attracting, if possible, public attention to one of the great causes of inundations, the inconsiderate destruction of woods and forests. With this view a few gentlemen formed an experimental Society to last for three years only, hoping to constitute later a permanent association. The experiment has unfortunately failed, and the Society will cease to exist in the month of April next.

"The immediate cause of the recent inundations, the disastrous consequences of which will be felt for many years to come, was the heavy rains that fell on the North-eastern Alps during the second and third decades of September last, but their effect was greatly aggravated by the denuded condition of the mountains. From a well-wooded mountainous area the same mass of water would not have been precipitated to the plain with equal velocity as was the case from an area bare of trees. It is evident that, where woods exist, a certain quantity of water must be absorbed by the vegetation, while the larger portion, though it indeed descends, does so gradually, thus making an important difference in the volume of the floods. Paleocapa, the distinguished Venetian engineer, placed this truth in evidence, as far back as 1845, in a lecture delivered at the Venetian Institute of Sciences, Literature, and Art, on the diminished carrying capacity ('portata ') of rivers. Citing as examples the Venetian rivers Sila and Brenta, he proved that their carrying capacity was diminished, and that the floods were higher and the average flow lower than formerly, which he unhesitatingly attributed to inconsiderate disforesting on the mountains.

"Another Italian celebrity, Lombardini, has furnished almost. mathematical proofs of the same fact, in his studies on the Lake of Como. The Como basin, containing a superficial area of about 70 square kilom.,.receives eight-tenths of its waters from the great valley of the Adda, which extends for more than 100 kilom. from Colico, near which place the river discharges its waters into the lake, to Bormio, where it has its source. The Adda has more than fifty tributary streams, between rivers and torrents, and, through its long course, varies from a minimum, discharging into the lake 14,000 cubic metres in the twenty-four hours, to a maximum, discharging 70,000 cubic metres within the same period. Numerous small torrents, which, in ordinary times, are almost always dry, become rapidly swollen after heavy rains, even of short duration, and the Adda as suddenly rises. Lombardini proved that the floods of the Lake of Como were in strict relation to the cutting down of the woods, which was effected, in the valley of the Adda, between 1825 and 1850. He showed that, in the early part of that period, there was only one flood every three years and a-half; then, every two years; later on, the average period between each flood was only eighteen months; and so, in gradation, with the dis- appearance of the woods, the floods became more frequent. Paleocapa's observations in Venetia pointed to a similar conclusion. The same quantity of water was distributed in a different manner; it accu- mulated with greater rapidity, and, in consequence, the floods recurred oftener and were more dangerous in character than when the woods existed.

((

While, however, Italy is still blind to the danger arising from this denudation, such is not the case with her neighbours. Austria, Switzerland, and France have turned their serious attention to the reforesting of the bare mountain slopes, and, it would appear, not without success.'

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1883. 111

In proof that the benefits arising from reforesting are real, the example of the small town of Varazze, on the Riviera di Ponente, an honourable exception to the general indifference in Italy, is cited by the writer in the “Bulletin.” The mountains above Varazze in 1854 were entirely denuded of vegetation, as the neighbouring heights still remain. The territory belonged to the commune, but, although covering a superficial area of some 4,000 hectares, it yielded little or no revenue. Every heavy downpour of rain caused the torrent Toira, which traverses Varazze, to swell; and, on more than one occasion, the very existence of the town was threatened. The communal authorities at length determined to dispose of their property in numerous small lots, in part on perpetual leases, to the no small advantage of their finances. But the principal benefit that has accrued is that the mountain slopes are now covered with woods of stone pines ("pino marittimo"), that the rains no longer cause the Toira to swell, and that the town of Varazze is safe from inundations.

The Italian Alpine Club has made several partial efforts towards reforesting various points of the Alps and the Apennines, the merit of the initiative in the matter being, in great part, due to Mr. R. H. Budden, an English gentleman, President of the Florentine section of the Club. But, however deserving of praise private efforts in this direction may be, they cannot cure an evil which has grown to such dimensions as to demand a remedy of a national character.

2. Each licence shall state the name of the Licensee and the shop or house where the business is to be carried on, and specify the name of the street, and the street number of the house.

3. The consideration money shall be paid monthly in advance; and there shall be paid in addition to the first monthly payment by every Licensee upon his licence being granted, a further sum equal to one monthly payment as a deposit on account of the consideration money, and the deposit shall

go in payment of the last monthly payment of the said term.

4. Every monthly payment must be paid on the first lawful day of each month, and in default of any such payment the Governor in Council shall be entitled to withdraw the licence, and to retain all moneys paid thereunder, and the Licensee shall make good all losses and expenses incurred by reason of such default.

5. No licence shall be transferable without the permission of the Governor in Council.

6. All Opium sold by the Licensee shall be prepared at the Factory at Sai On Lane, or at other places specially licensed by the Governor in Council.

Each ball shall produce between 20 and 30 taels' weight of prepared Opium.

7. The Licensee shall report daily to an Officer appointed by the Governor for the purpose, the quantity of opium sold per day. If the Licensee should make default in sending in such report, or should send in an incorrect report, all the opium found in the shop of the Licensee shall be liable to be seized by a Police or Excise Officer, and to be forfeited, and shall be by a Magistrate directed to be sold, and the proceeds paid into the Treasury for the public use.

8.

9.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

SIR,

DOWNING STREET,

8th December, 1882.

No. 118, 1st October, 1881. With reference to my Despatches noted in the margin, I have now the honour to transmit to you copies of Mr. OSBERT CHADWICK's Reports upon the Sanitary Condition of Hongkong which have been printed for the use of this Office, and also copies of a Blue Book, which has been presented to Parliament, containing those Reports, together with the recent correspondence connected with the subject to which they relate.

2. You will observe that, besides furnishing Reports upon the Sanitary Condition of Hongkong and upon the Sanitary surroundings of the Hongkong Barracks, Mr. CHADWICK has added much useful information on Sanitation in an Appendix to his first Report which it was not thought necessary to include in the correspondence presented to Parliament, but which will be found given in the Departmental Print.

152

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD MARCH, 1883.

3. In transmitting to you these papers, I have to request that you will, with the assistance of Mr. PRICE, and with the advice of the Legislative Council, before whom you will cause these papers to be laid, consider in what manner and to what extent it will be possible to carry out Mr. CHADWICK'S recommendations.

4. I defer giving any detailed or precise instructions on Mr. CHADWICK's scheme for introducing a complete system of house and street drainage into the Town, until I hear what course of action you would recommend in order that this great work may be so regulated as not to press unduly on the strength of the Surveyor General's Staff or on the Colonial Revenue of any one year; but there is no reason why I should not at once advert to some of the less expensive operations suggested in the Principal Report to which in my opinion your attention should be turned without delay. The minor improvements to the existing Sewers, the establishment of free public Latrines and Urinals, Baths and Laundries, and the proper regulation, &c., of the public Markets should be taken in hand at once; but what appears to me to be most urgent is that immediate steps should be taken to organise and enforce a thorough house to house and street to street service for the removal of night soil, garbage, ashes, house sweepings, and rubbish of every sort.

5. The proposals in the 6th Section, part 2, of the Report seem to be well adapted for this purpose, and Mr. CHADWICK makes it clear, I think, that the removal of excreta under the house bucket system and the scavenging and cleansing of the Streets should be provided for by separate Contracts; on the basis of separate tenders for the work to be done. I see no reason why it should not be easy to make arrangements in accordance with the recommendation of the Report for effectually carrying out both these operations, and as regards the night soil, as its sale should under proper management yield a profit both to the Contractors and the Government, the strict enforcement of its removal ought to present no difficulty, but as regards the sweeping and scavenging work it will be necessary, as pointed out by Mr. CHADWICK, that the Government should carefully watch the proceedings of the Contractor and his servants, and by constant supervision and control see that the conditions of the Contract are punctually and scrupulously fulfilled.

6. This control can of course only be exercised by an Officer of the Government supported by an adequate staff, and I request you to consider Mr. CHADWICK'S recommendations on this head and report to me the name of an Officer fitted to undertake the duties which will have to be performed in connection with the two Contracts above mentioned. The Officer selected for this appointment will also be responsible for the inspections you will doubtless establish under Regulations to be framed for the purpose of bringing into effect the various improvements described by Mr. CHADWICK in his observations on the need of an efficient and energetic Sanitary Staff.

I would especially draw your attention to paragraph 282, where it is recommended, with a view to make the Government arrangements for removal of night soil and scavenging popular among the Chinese, that the present Chinese District Watchmen should be employed as Subordinate Sanitary Inspectors; and to paragraphs 276 and 277, where remarks are made which show that their necessary house to house inspection ought, with ordinary care and management, to be made without giving offence to the Inhabitants.

7. The Officer selected, should carry on his duties under the general control of the Colonial Engineer and the Colonial Surgeon, and it would seem convenient that he should form part of the establishment of the Public Works Department.

8. It will be for you to consider what will be the best method of providing funds for carrying into effect such of the larger works as it may be decided to undertake, and the time at which it will be possible to undertake them. At present, and until the completion of the Tytam Water Works, I presume that it will be possible to make but little progress with them, and I may here remark that the Reserve Fund having been already appropriated for that work, it will not be available for the improvement of house construction and house drainage as suggested by Mr. CHADWICK. You should nevertheless introduce a new Building Ordinance at an early date in order that every opportunity which occurs hereafter may be taken of removing the defects in existing streets and houses, and of guarding against the perpetuation of such faulty building and draining in the houses to be erected and streets to be laid out in future. This branch of the subject is fully discussed in the 2nd Section of the 1st Part and the 2nd Section of the 2nd Part of the Report, and also in the Appendix. I commend the views therein set forth to your careful perusal and consideration.

9. As the District Watchmen have Police duties to perform under the direction of the Registrar General, the Sanitary Officer must be in close relations with that Officer. The Sanitary duties of the District Watchman will be principally to see that the inhabitants of his District remove nuisances and to report any negligence on the part of the Contractors. The discharge of these duties would not interfere with the due performance of their ordinary Police duties. Any reports respecting Sanitation would be referred by the Registrar General to the Sanitary Officer who would deal with them accord- ing to his Instructions from the Colonial Surgeon and the Surveyor General.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD MARCH, 1883.

153

10. As the new Tytam Water Works will not be completed for some time, and even when finished the supply of water will not be unlimited, waste prevention should be attended to and the present system of distribution should be improved, water waste checked, and the unjust incidence of the present water tax remedied.

11. To this end a new Water-works Act should be introduced at once, giving powers to punish waste of Water, and regulating the rate of taxation in a more equitable manner. I propose to request Mr CHADWICK to furnish me with a memorandum which will be of use to you in considering this subject.

12. The minor improvements to the distributing mains should also be taken in hand at once, as proposed in Part 2 of Mr. CHADWICK's Report, Section 5. To make the new supply suffice for the wants of the city, all this will in any case require to be done. By doing it at once the present supply may be rendered far more efficient at a moderate cost.

13. I cannot conclude this Despatch without expressing my satisfaction, in which I feel sure you will concur, at the care and ability with which Mr. CHADWICK has accomplished the Mission entrusted to him, and at the clearness and completeness of the reports which he has furnished.

DownING STREET,

30th December, 1882.

SIR, I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No. 192 of the 12th of September, reporting on the Normal School, and of your Despatch 221 of the 10th of October submit- ting the Report of the Commission appointed in 1880 to consider whether it would be expedient to raise the Central School into a Collegiate Institution.

With regard to the Normal School, I agree in Dr. STEWART'S recommendation that it should be continued provisionally until the New Central School has been built and the Establishment re-organized, when the latter institution should take up the work of training pupil teachers, and the present Normal School be closed. No new pupils should be admitted and those in training should be given a strictly moderate subsistence allowance, and be called upon to sign bonds similar to the one enclosed in your despatch, if they have not already done so.

I think it also very important to adopt Dr. STEWART's suggestion that if the present pupils live together on the school premises, a proper supervision of them should be exercised after school hours.

With regard to the Central School, I agree in the Report of the Committee that neither a Collegiate Institution nor a Normal School are at present required, and I generally concur in the other recommendations submitted.

A new Central School should be begun without avoidable delay on the site selected by Sir ARTHUR KENNEDY, and I gather from your Despatch that the plans had not been finally approved by you; when you have discussed them with Mr. PRICE you will forward them for my acceptance and I will now only observe that convenience should certainly be considered before architectural effects.

I gather from the evidence that the hours of school, which were apparently eight in summer and seven-and-a-half in winter, have been shortened; this change is clearly beneficial and has my approval. I also approve the recommendation of the Commission in paragraph 5, so far as relates to building five new schools, but I do not clearly understand whether they recommend a more expensive class of school than was approved by Sir M. HICKS-BEACH, and I wish for information on this point.

Until the new Central School is built, it is premature to sanction any definite arrangement, but the 7th paragraph of the Report appears to suggest satisfactory means for insuring a more efficient study of the English language.

Any Medical or Surgical Practitioner who, pursuant to law, is registered as such and entitled accordingly to certain privileges in practising medicine or surgery, accord- ing to his qualifications in any one or more of the provinces of the dominion of Canada, or in any other British Colony other than Hongkong, shall, upon proof thereof, be entitled to be registered accordingly under this Ordinance. Documen- tary evidence of his being thus lawfully registered in such other Colony may be submitted to the Colonial Secretary by any such Practitioner who wishes to be registered in Hong- kong. If the Colonial Secretary is satisfied that such evidence establishes sufficient proof of the registration in such other Colony and of the identity of the applicant, he shall give to the Practitioner a certificate to that effect, according to the form C. in the Schedule to this Ordinance and, upon the applicant returning the same to him duly impressed with a stamp of $5 for duty by way of registration fee, shall register him accordingly under this Ordinance. If the Colonial Secretary is not satisfied, he shall submit the case to the Governor in Council for decision as to whether he shall or shall not give such certificate, and such decision shall be final.

13. Any Medical or Surgical Practitioner holding a di- ploma, a license, or a certificate of any kind concerning his professional qualifications granted to him by any Univer- sity or by any College or Faculty of Physiciaus or Surgeons, after and in consequence of his having passed through a course of study and examination as thorough and sufficient as is the minimum course in any like case approved by Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, under Section 21 of the Act of the United Kingdom, 21 and 22 Victoria, Chapter 90, shall, upon proof that such diploma, license, or certificate was so granted, be entitled to be registered ac- cordingly under this Ordinance. Documentary or other evidence of his identity, and of the fact that such diploma, license, or certificate was so granted may, together with his di- ploma, license, or certificate, be submitted to the Medical Board by any Practitioner who wishes to be so registered and such evidence shall, without delay, be taken fully aud fairly into consideration by the Board. If the Board are satisfied that the evidence establishes sufficient proof that the Practitioner has passed through a course of study and examinations as aforesaid, they shall give to such Practitioner a certificate to that effect, according to the form D. in the Schedule to this Ordinance, and such certificate when impressed with a stamp for duty by way of registration fee of $25-shall be to the Colonial Secretary authority for registering the Practitioner accordingly. If the Board are not satisfied, they shall submit the case, with a full report of their opi- nions about it, and of the grounds on which those opinions are based, to the Governor in Council, for decision as to whether they shall or shall not give the certificate as afore- said; such decision shall be final, and, if in the applicant's favour, shall entitle him to have given to him such a certifi- cate as aforesaid.

14. If any Practitioner registered under this Ordinance is convicted of any felony or misdemeanor, or, after due inquiry, is adjudged by the Medical Board to have been guilty of infamous conduct in any professional respect, the Medical Board may, if they think fit, inform the Colonial Secretary thereof and the Colonial Secretary shall thereupon strike the name of such Practitioner off the Register.

15. All questions respecting the right of any person to be registered, or the mode of registration, or the liability of any person to be struck off the Register, and all questions respecting any alteration of the Register, shall, in case of dispute, be decided, subject to an appeal to the Governor in Council. If there is no such appeal, the order, direction, or decision shall be final. If there is such an appeal, the decision of the Governor in Council shall be final, and he may give all such directions to the Colonial Secretary as may be necessary for enforcing such decision.

16. Any person who wilfully makes before any Justice of the Peace any false declaration, purporting to be a declar- ation under this Ordinance, shall be guilty of perjury.

17. If any person fraudulently procures or attempts to pro- cure himself or any other person to be registered under this Ordinance by making or producing, or causing to be made or produced, any false or fraudulent representation or decla- ration, either orally or in writing, he and every person aiding and assisting him therein shall be guilty of a misde- meanor, and shall, on conviction thereof, be imprisoned, with or without hard labour, for any term not exceeding two years.

18. Any person not registered under this Ordinance who falsely takes or uses in this Colony any name or title or addition, implying a qualification to practice medicine or surgery, shall be liable for each offence, on summary con- viction before a Police Magistrate, to a penalty not exceed- ing one hundred dollars.

GOVERNMENT CENTRAL SCHOOL,

HONGKONG, 17th February, 1883.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward to you the Annual Report and Returns, connected with this School, for 1882.

In reviewing the events of the past year, the following facts deserve to be noted.

(1) With the approval of His Excellency, the Officer Administering the Government, Euclid and Algebra have been restored to the Time Table. As these subjects with Mensuration occupy half of the 6 hours given weekly to Arithmetic, no loss accrues thereby to the Study of English.

(2) Elementary Geography and Grammar are now taught in the lowest classes outside the Preparatory School, by which arrangement increased proficiency in English may reasonably be expected in the upper classes in two or three years' time.

(3) A half-yearly examination was held at the end of July, in the work of the past 5 months, with the satisfactory result in the English School of 80.75 per cent. passing, although no time was given for special preparation.

(4) By the return of Mr. MCKINNEY (4th Master) the School, for the first time, enjoyed for 4 months the benefit of the full complement of 6 European Masters; which rendered the discipline of the School highly efficient, and contributed to the satisfactory result at the Annual Examination.

(5) On the other hand, toward the close of the year, the staff suffered severely by the temporary removal of Mr. ARTHUR (5th Master) to the Magistracy, on the score of ill-health; and by the permanent loss of Messrs. CHAN-KAI-MING, TSANG-KIT-FAN, LAU-HO and A. RAMJAHN. The interests of the School have, however, been secured by suitable appointments.

(6) The statistics call for no remark, as they have for some years attained a somewhat fixed average; no alteration for the better can be made in the Roll Returns in the present building.

(7) It is, however, satisfactory to observe that the Central School continues to meet a demand, having in the past year supplied 30 important vacant situations, in the Colonial Service, in the Chinese Imperial Customs and in leading legal and mercantile firms.

I have the honour to be,

GEO. H. BATESON WRIGHT, Head Master.

EDUCATION DEPARTMENT, HONGHONG, 20th February, 1883.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward herewith the Annual Report on Education and the Blue Book returns for 1882.

2. The total number of Schools subject to supervision by the Government amounted in the year 1882 to 80, as compared with 72 in 1881, 63 in 1880, 53 in 1879 and 47 in 1878. The total number of scholars enrolled during the year 1882 in Schools, subject to supervision and annual examination by the Government, amounted to 5182 as compared with 4372 enrolled in 1881, 3886 in 1880, 3460 in 1879, and 3152 in 1878. It is evident, therefore, that the number of Schools and the number of scholars, subject to Government supervision and examination, is steadily increasing from year to year. The annual increase of scholars in such Schools amounted in 1879 to 308 scholars, in 1880 to 426 scholars, in 1881 to 686 scholars and in 1882 to 810 scholars.

3. These Schools, subject to Government supervision and examination, may roughly be divided into two classes, viz. secular (Government) Schools and denominational (Missionary) Schools. The secular schools are under the entire control of the Government and supported, in one way or other, by fixed monthly payments, whilst the denominational (Missionary) Schools are under Government inspection throughout the year and annually subsidized by the Government on the basis of definite results, in fixed subjects, ascertained in each case through the annual examination of each individual scholar by the Inspector of Schools. Referring to the former of these two classes of Schools, I find that we had in 1882 in 39 Government Schools 2114 scholars, as compared with 1986 scholars in 1881, 2078 scholars in 1880, 2043 scholars in 1879 and 2101 scholars in 1878, which figures show a hardly appreciable increase of scholars. The explanation lies in this that in all these Government Schools all available space is crowded, and in the case of the Central School overcrowded, with scholars, the accommodation being entirely inadequate to meet the demand. As regards denominational (Missionary) Schools, we had in 1882 on the rolls of 41 Schools 3068 scholars, as compared with 2237 scholars in 1881, 1801 scholars in 1880, 1417 scholars in 1879, and 1051 scholars in 1878, which figures show, from year to year, a steady increase of scholars attending these denominational (Missionary) Schools.

186

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD MARCH, 1883.

4. The proportion of boys to girls, enrolled in the Schools under Government supervision, deserves attention, the more so as there are but two or three Girls-schools in existence in this Colony apart from those under Government supervision. In the latter Schools we had in 1882 but 1241 girls, as compared with 3941 boys, whilst the Census of 1881 showed but a slight difference in respect of sex, for there were 10,629 Chinese boys and 9,940 Chinese girls returned as under sixteen years of age. Among the non-Chinese population the relative proportion of boys and girls is tolerably equal. It appears, therefore, that we may safely infer from the above given figures, that two thirds of the total number of girls in the Colony, who ought to be sent to school, receive no schooling at all and conse- quently, as a matter of fact, in most instances no education worth having.

5. Of the 80 Schools under Government supervision, there is but a small minority teaching English. The vast majority of the children in the Colony learn Chinese only. In 1882 there were 64 Schools in which a purely Chinese education is given, but in most of these Schools Christian teaching is superadded to the teaching of Confucianism under the Grant-in-Aid Scheme. Two (Missionary) Girls-Schools give a European education in the Chinese language, and 2 other (Missionary) Schools, of a mixed nature, give a European education in the Portuguese language. There were further 6 Schools - giving a European education in the English language and 8 Schools which give an English education with Chinese in addition. English teaching is advancing in the Colony in quality rather than in extent, yet there is from year to year a steady, though slow, progress made in promoting a knowledge of the English language among the people residing in Hongkong.

6. As regards the range of subjects comprised by the education given in the various Schools under Government supervision, the Government Central School stands forth, facile princeps, among all the educational establishment of the Colony, owing to the unrivalled range of subjects it comprises. Whereas, for instance, the highest classes in such a well-organised School as St. Joseph's College, consisting of Portuguese and Chinese boys, are taught neither Portuguese nor Chinese, and could be examined merely in the following English subjects, reading, composition, arithmetic, grammar, geo- graphy and history, the corresponding classes in the Government Central School, consisting of boys of almost any nationality, were examined by me both in English and in Chinese, viz. in reading, map drawing, arithmetic, algebra, composition, dictation, Euclid, geography, grammar, history, mensuration, translation from Chinese into English, translation from English into Chinese, Chinese essay-writing, Chinese letter-writting and Chinese prosody. I only fear that multa are being preferred at the Central School to multum and that the load here laid on young shoulders, through the extraordinary difficulty of the written Chinese language, is too heavy to be compatible with the physical and mental health of weakly boys in a tropical climate. It is noticeable, on the other hand, that St. Joseph's College, the princidal school of the Portuguese community and filled with an overwhelming majority of boys who speak but Portuguese, does not teach (nor employ in teaching) the language of Camoes, nor does the Hongkong Public School, specially designed for European Protestant boys, teach anything but English. The Hongkong Public School, however, laudably added in 1882 to its subjects the teaching of Euclid, of physical geography and geology. It is desirable, in my opinion, that Schools like the Central School, St. Joseph's College and the Hongkong Public School, should-where it can be done with safety- superadd to their present scheme of class teaching also special higher classes (requiring boys to remain a year longer in school) for book-keeping, chemistry and physiology, and for Latin. There has been visible for years past a natural tendency to expand in that direction the range of subjects comprised by the teaching of the Schools at present existing in the Colony, but the demand for such teaching is still small and the natural tendency referred to is hampered by the extra-ordinary difficulties of the written Chinese language and by the multiplicity of different languages and dialects spoken in the Colony. The teaching given in the Schools under Government supervision represents at present three separate language viz. English, Portuguese, and Chinese, and Chinese teaching is moreover given in three different dialects, as some schools teach Punti, some Hakka and some Hoklo.

7. As regands the Government Central School, I have but little to add to the Report of the new Head-Master, Mr. WRIGHT, beyond detailing the results of the examination. This examination was this time conducted by me in a far more searching and comprehensive manner than before, as, by an understanding with the Head-Master, the examination was not arranged, as formerly, as a mere pass- examination, confined to the limited range of subjects required by the Grant-in-Aid Scheme, nor merely on the basis of the rule of 200 attendances. Every boy, present in school whilst the examina- tion lasted, was examined in every subject that had been taught in his respective class in the course of the year, whether he had been in school only a few days or throughout the whole year. I drew up the examintion papers and framed the questions in each subject myself independently, on the basis of what had been taught in each class, and none of the Masters saw the papers before they were given out to the boys, except the Head-Master who confined himself to suggesting, in the case of two or three papers, that a few of the papers set by me be made more difficult for prize purposes. For this same reason, of combining with this examination the annual prize-examination, I had set more numerous questions in each subject than is customary at the pass examinations of the Grant-in-Aid Schools. The severity of the test applied lifts, therefore, the results of this examination beyond all comparison with the results of Grant-in-Aid School examinations, even considering that at the latter examinations two-thirds of the marks possible entitle to a pass, whilst at the Central School I passed at this examina- tion all who had made half marks. Under these circumstances it is highly creditable to the new Head-Master of the Central School and to his staff that, as the net result of such a searching

187

examination, out of the 363 boys as many as 331 boys or 91.18 per cent. passed. As regards the Chinese teaching of the Central School, the result was on the whole satisfactory, considering the little time that can be spared for Chinese studies. It seems to me clear, that all the Central School can, without injury to its English teaching, successfully aim at in its Chinese department, is to maintain and revise the respective standard of Chinese knowledge which each individual Chinese boy brings with him to the Central School on beginning his English studies. So far the Chinese teaching of the Central School in 1882 has indeed been satisfactory. But as regards the Chinese teaching given in the Anglo-Chinese Class to boys whose mother tongue is other than Chinese, the result of the examination I held appears to me not only far below what might have been expected, considering the amount of time devoted to Chinese teaching in this Class, but there seems to have been in this branch of the Central School a general lack of energy. This was probably caused by the little amount of interest which non-Chinese boys take in Chinese studies, by the appalling nature of the difficulties of the written language of China, and by the concomitant discouragement felt by the teachers who see no hope of success except in the case of some few boys who happen to take, for a while, an excep- tional interest in Chinese studies. I think it might be well for the Head-Master to consider, whether it would not be better for the School and of more practical use for the boys of the Anglo-Chinese Class, to confine the teaching in this Class to the spoken vernacular, making attendance at such teaching obligatory, and to make the study of the written Chinese language optional to all non-Chinese boys who have obtained a certain proficiency in speaking Chinese.

9. As regards the Government Normal School, I append the Report of the Principal, Mr. MAY. The results of a searching examination of the Students which I conducted, by giving the Students papers to work out, by orally questioning them, and by making them teach classes under my eyes, are satisfactory and highly creditable to Mr. MAY. Considering two thirds of the highest possible number of marks as entitling to a pass certificate, every one of the Students has satisfactorily passed his first year's examination. The students were under the observation of the Chinese Master both in and out of school hours, and their conduct has been exemplary. I also noticed throughout the year the strict discipline kept by the Principal in all branches of the Normal School. I subjoin a Table showing in detail the number of marks obtained by each Student in English examination of the Normal School:

To the Chinese studies of the Normal School Students the same observations apply as those which I made above with reference to the Chinese Classes of the Central School. All that can be expected, in view of the limited time available for Chinese studies, is that the standard of Chinese attainments acquired by the Students before entering the Normal School be maintained and deepened. So far the result of the Chinese teaching of the Normal School has been highly satisfactory. I subjoin the details of the Chinese examination.

Apart from the above mentioned eight Students, secured by Bonds, two Probationers were received a few weeks before the close of the year, subject to three months' trial, but it is doubtful whether they can eventually be enrolled.

10. The smaller Government Schools and the so called Aided Schools (in the villages) have gone their usual course in 1882 and do not call for special remarks. A growing demand for English teach- ing manifests itself now in the outskirts of the town and in the larger villages, and English teaching has shown satisfactory results in Saiyingp'ún, Wántsai, Wongnaich'ung, Stanley and Yaumati. In Stanley especially good progress has been made in 1882 as compared with the state of things there in the previous years.

The Anglo-Chinese teacher at Shaukiwán had to be dismissed and purely Chinese teaching has been temporarily substituted there for Anglo-Chinese teaching, owing to the present impossibility of finding a trained or competent Master for such an out-station. In some few of the Aided Village-Schools, which give a purely Chinese education of a low class-Schools in which occasionally children do not learn writing because the parents are too poor to buy pen and ink-the results of the annual examination came near the average results of the corresponding class of Grant-in- Aid Schools. But in a vast majority of cases these Aided Government Schools in the villages are far below the lowest standard of education given in the Grant-in-Aid Schools. A comparison between those Aided Government Schools and the Denominational Grant-in-Aid Schools tends to impress upon the observer the desirability of encouraging the attempt which, I understand, is about to be made by some Grant-in-aid School Managers, to introduce in the villages also the Grant-in-Aid system which hitherto was confined to the city of Victoria and Yaumati. I can well remember the low stagnant condition in which the Denominational Schools of Hongkong were engulfed before the Grant-in-Aid Scheme, with its system of payment by results, was introduced and raised them gradually to the high educational standard they now occupy. I would fain see the same reforming influences brought to bear on the Government Aided Schools of Hongkong. Although the Grant-in-Aid Scheme affords material aid only to Schools which enjoy a large attendance and is therefore inappropriate to some of the smaller villages of Hongkong, which will ever require a continuation of the present system of Aided Schools with its fixed monthly payments, the Grant-in-Aid system might beneficially and suc- cessfully be introduced in a considerable number of the villages of Hongkong.

11. With reference to the Denominational Grant-in-Aid Schools, all the details, such as I have given above with reference to the Central School and the Normal School, will be found collected in the Tables accompanying this report, viz.: in Table XIII showing the number of scholars who passed and failed in each standard, as well as the amount of grant earned in each case, in Table XIV, which ex- hibits the percentage of scholars who passed in each School, and in Table XV, which shows the per- centage of passes obtained by each of those Schools in English reading, writing (or composition), arithmetic, grammar, geography, history, and in Chinese reading, repetition, writing, explanation, geography and composition. There are only a few of the English teaching Schools, which call for special remarks.

12. St. Joseph's College was moved during the year, first into temporary mat sheds and subse- quently into a splendid new building for which a Building Grant is now applied for. These changes in the locality of the School-rooms might have been expected to impair the efficiency of the teaching of the year, but the result of the examination has been highly creditable to the excellent organization and discipline maintained at this School by the Christian Brothers. The Chinese Division indeed has not been as successful as in former years, owing to the fact that the staff in this Division is inadequate now for the annually increasing number of classes into which the scholars in this Division have to be sub-divided. In former years, when there were only two or three classes in this Division, it was quite possible for the one Master to teach the whole Division single-handed, but to teach effectively 55 boys divided between 5 different standards, as was the case in 1882, was beyond the range of possibility for one Master, even assisted as he was by a Chinese pupil teacher. I mention this, in justice to the Master in question, in view of the fact that in this Division, out of 53 boys examined, 45 only passed, or 84.9 per cent., being a decrease of 13.12 per cent. as compared with the results of the previous year. The Portuguese Division of St. Joseph's College passed very well, as out of 105 boys examined in the various standards of the Code, as many as 100 boys or 95.24 per cent. passed, which is a result reflect- ing the highest credit on the Head-Master and staff of the College. It will also be noticed that the number of days, during which this School was taught in 1882, has been increased to 234 days, whereby a defect has been remedied to which I drew attention in my last Annual Report. Another defect of

190

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD MARCH, 1883.

this School remains, however, still to be remedied, viz., the irregularity of attendance on the part of the Portuguese scholars. Now, since the number of school days has been brought up to a satisfactory standard, the blame for failures in making up the 200 daily attendances required by the Code rests almost entirely with the parents of the children. The College itself suffers severely under this apathy of the parents, as out of 342 boys on the roll of St. Joseph's College in 1882, only 158 could be allowed to compete at the examination for the annual grant, which is paid by the Government on the basis of a minimum of 200 daily attendances during the year.

13. The Victoria Schools suffered, in the boys' division, a considerable decrease in the number of scholars attending this School, but the Tables appended to this Report will show that the efficiency of the teaching given in both divisions, that for girls and that for boys, has but slightly decreased as compared with the very high standard obtained in former years. As many as 94.74 per cent. of the scholars passed in 1882 in the girls' division and 86.66 per cent. in the boys' division.

14. The Italian Sisters are beginning to come to the front in their efforts for the improvement of the standard of education formerly available by the Portuguese community. In the Bridges Street Poor Schools as many as 91.66 per cent. of the children passed, being an increase of 52.77 per cent. over the result of the first year's examination. In the Italian Convent School, which has been examined for the first time and was accordingly under considerable disadvantages, as many as 86.48 per cent. of the children passed. The Portuguese division in St. Francis' School has also been highly successful, but the English division of the same School is too poorly attended to do credit to the excellency of the teaching of the Italian Sisters.

15. The Hongkong Public School has evidently been much improved by the present Master, as the general range of intelligence displayed by the boys, and the excellent method and discipline of this School amply testified. I have also above referred to the praiseworthy addition of extra subjects included in the programme of this School in 1882. But as the increase in the work of the School was not accompanied by a proportionate increase of time devoted to schooling, the result has been disappointing as far as a mere pass examination is concerned. Although, out of 4 boys, 3 boys passed in Euclid, 2 boys in geology and 2 in physical geography, yet only 2 passes could be counted for a grant in these extra-subjects, as there were failures in the ordinary subjects (arithmetic and geography). These details will explain the decrease of 7.15 per cent. in the passes obtained by the School, but I must further mention that, in my opinion, the boys did not do justice either to them- selves or to their Master because, having been separately examined by the Manager of the School for the

purpose of the annual prize giving but a few days before the Government examination, the boys saw no immediate purpose served by a renewed examination and did not work, therefore with a will when examined once more. It is but due to the Master, of whose efficiency I have the highest opinion, that I should mention these facts.

16. The vernacular Grant-in-Aid Schools in Class I of the Code, which give a Chinese education, combined with Christian teaching, in the Chinese language, call for no individual remarks, as the results of the examinations are sufficiently illustrated by the details which will be found in the Tables appended to this Report. I may allude, however to some points of general interest.

17. When referring, in my last Annual Report, to certain evil tendencies arising from some of the provisions of the Grant-in-Aid Scheme, I ought to have also pointed out, at the same time, that, whatever evil tendencies are called forth, for instance, by the high personal bonus paid to Masters of Schools in Class I, the good effect which these same provisions exercise may be considered as more than counterbalancing the mercenary spirit and the subterfuges arising among Chinese Masters through the system of payment by results which forms the quintessence of the Code. Falsification of the daily attendance roll, which is one of the commonest subterfuges adopted by that mercenary spirit alive among the Chinese Masters, will be effectually checked to a great extent by enforcing the rule which for years past has been enforced in the Government Schools of the Colony, viz. that the daily attendance roll should be filled up punctually at 11 A.M. and that the slightest deviation from this regulation be treated as a serious breach of order and unsparingly visited, with a fine. I found last year that some of the Chinese Masters in Grant-in-Aid Schools persisted in filling up the daily attendance roll during the recess for the noon-day meal, making it thereby impossible for me to detect one special form of falsification of the roll, whether I inspected a school in the forenoon or in the afternoon.

18. From premature applications made, at the close of the year 1882, by some Chinese Masters for new schools to be opened in 1883, I obtained renewed proof of the tendency existing among Chinese Masters to take advantage of the liberality of the Grant-in-Aid Scheme for the furtherance of private purposes. They sought to secure a promise on the part of the Government to receive, under the provisions of the Code, Schools which profess to be bonâ fide public Schools but which are in reality private Schools intended for private emolument.

19. As a curious illustration of the continued prevalence of kidnapping practices in Hongkong, I may mention that I noticed in 1882 several cases in which Chinese girls, living at a great distance from school and having to traverse on their way to and from school the most crowded portion of the town, were dressed like boys and attended, all through the year, Girls-schools in boys' dress.

20. I enclose the usual Tables, I to XVI, containing the Educational Statistics for the year 1882.

I have the honour to be

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable F. STEWART, LL.D.

APPENDIX.

GOVERNMENT NORMAL SCHOOL,

February, 17th 1883.

SIR, I have the honour to forward you the Report of the Government Normal School for the year 1882. After the trial examination held by you in December 1881, ten Students (that number being the full complement for the first year) took up their residence on the premises in January following.

In March, one of the Students obtained permission from His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government to withdraw on condition of refunding the sums of money that he had actually received from Government. He is, however, now in Government employ.

In August, one of the Students obtained leave to go to his native Village, where he died, after a lingering illness.

In September, another of the Students asked permission to go to Canton to consult a native doctor, as he was also ill; but before he obtained permission he absented himself, and consequently his name was struck off the Roll. I have heard since, on reliable anthority, that he returned to the Colony, more ill, and died in October.

During October, one of the Students was sent to take temporary charge of the Shaukiwan School, on the dismissal of the master there. He had sole charge of that School for the whole of October, and one week in November, and judging from the results of this year's Examination, I venture to say that the experience did him good, as it imparted to him a spirit of self-confidence before a class, which is highly essential in a Teacher.

The remaining seven Students have already entered into a bond, required by the Government, to the effect that they are to remain in Training for three years and serve the Government as Teachers for five years after their training, if required so to do.

In December last, two more youths entered on three months trial, who, if approved of and accepted by Government, will bring the total number of Students for the coming year, up to nine. There is therefore still one Student more required to bring the number up to the intended complement of ten, and if a notification were inserted in the Gazette, before the end of the New Year's Holidays, inviting applicants, I am of opinion that there would be more applying for the vacancy, than was the case when a notice was inserted towards the end of the year, as Chinese do not care to make any changes at so late a period.

Considering that the object of the School is to train young men to act as Teachers in the Elementary Schools, it has been my chief aim to instruct them more especially in such subjects as are required for a Pass in any of the six Standards laid down in the examination Schedule (for Grant-in-Aid Schools) of June 1880, which in my opinion is the highest Standard that an Elementary school can be brought up to, allowing six years to complete the six Standards in.

In addition to these subjects English speaking and Translation have been specially taught, these being the substantial roots for the growth and expansion of teaching power of other subjects.

Besides the study of the ordinary subjects, each Student has had practical experience in teaching, by taking a class two hours daily in the Government Elementary School which is attached to the Normal School for this purpose;

and once a week, a practical lesson on the art of teaching has been given by myself to the Students before a class of boys, which lesson was supplemented on each occasion by requiring a Student to give lessons to the same class under my personal supervision. The form attached shews the Attendances, &c. for the year. As the Students reside at the School none has been absent at any time except on leave obtained either on account of sickness or special circumstances.

I have the honour to be,

Dr. E. J. EITEL,

Inspector of Sehools.

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

A. J. MAY,

Principal.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.
