THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST JANUARY, 1870:

On the 19th December, a Fire occurred at No. 61, Praya, West, at which the Government, P. & O. Company's and "Hongkong" Insurance Company's Steam Engines, the "Imperial" and "Royal" Insurance Company's, and Chinese owned Hand Engines were present. The Fire was speedily subdued. A full Report was made to His Excellency on the 20th instant. On the 21st December, a Fire broke out at No. 43, Jardine's Bazaar; the Government, Insurance Companies', and Chinese owned Engines were in attendance and the Fire was got under; of which, Report was made to His Excellency the following day.

       The Chinese Volunteers attended in readiness and in force the inspection on the 23rd November, and at the two Fires before mentioned.

In consequence of the Fires calling for the attendance of the Volunteers, and the various Fire Engines, there has been no general parade this month, but on the 30th instant there was an inspection of the Government and Chinese owned Engines at the Canton Steamer Wharf, especially with the view of testing some large sized canvas hose, formed of double canvas quilted, tar being laid between the two sheets of canvas: five hundred feet (of the 1,020 feet authorized to be made) having been completed, this was laid out in two delivery branches from the No. 1 Steam Engine, stationed at the Praya, and supplied one large portable tank, and two large tubs, the supply being more than sufficient for five Hand Engines. The new canvas hose was then laid in one branch reaching to the Queen's Road; and this having a connecting screw affixed, two lengths of small sized hose were fitted, and the Sea Water was projected to a height above the roofs of the surrounding houses. I therefore have satisfaction in reporting that Sea Water sufficient for two small Steam Fire Engines and one or two Hand Engines can be brought to any point five hundred feet from the Sea.

No. 115.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

  The following Regulations for Street-Chairs and Chair-Coolies are published for general in formation.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 2nd October, 1869.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN,

Colonial Secretary.

No Street Chairs may ply for hire after midnight; they may, however, carry their fares as long as required.

  Each Chair is secured for a sum of $50. Should articles of a higher value than this be lost in any Chair, there will be very little hope of their recovery through the Security.

  When loss of property in any Street Chair is suspected, its number should be forwarded to the Registrar General at once without any loss of time.

  When ground of complaint arises against any Street Chair-Coolie, the Person aggrieved may either hand the offender over to the Police, or send a Memorandum of the complaint and the Chair's Number to the Registrar General. It must however be remembered, that the Registrar General car inflict only a reprimand, but neither fine nor imprisonment without the testimony of an eye witness or oath. This however may be supplied by any Chinese who witnessed the Offence, if accredited by ? confirmatory note from his employer.

  Persons who are inconvenienced by the congregating of Chairs near their premises should notify the Registrar General, who will, if practicable, establish a "Chair Stand" in the nearest convenient place, and as far as possible enforce the Ordinance in regard to it.

  An attempt will be made to enforce the ordinary "Rule of the Road," along Queen's Road, more especially in the evening. It is requested that all Persons riding in Chairs or driving Vehicles will co-operate with the Police by observing the Rule of keeping the left side.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH JANUARY, 1870.

NOTICE.

Any persons who have in their possession old Registration Tickets belonging to Servants who have left or have been dismissed, are requested to send the same to this Office, with any remarks, on separate papers, they may wish to have recorded.

It would much tend to the more satisfactory working of the Registration of Domestic Servants, if Registration Tickets were in every case kept completely out of the possession of the Servants themselves. On the dismissal of a Servant his Ticket should be sent to this Office, unless it can be handed at once to his new Employer, and should on no account be confided to his own custody.

  Any persons who have in their possession old Registration Tickets belonging to Servants who have left or have been dismissed, are requested to send the same to this Office, with any remarks, or separate papers, they may wish to have recorded.

  It would much tend to the more satisfactory working of the Registration of Domestic Servants if Registration Tickets were in every oase kept completely out of the possession of the Servants themselves On the dismissal of a Servant his Ticket should be sent to this Office, unless it can be handed at once to his new Employer, and should on no account be confided to his own custody.

MAGISTRACY, HONGKONG, 4th February, 1870. SIR,I have the honor to place in your hands for submission to His Excellency The GOVERNOR the Report of the Fire Brigade for the month of January ultimo.

An Inspection and Parade was held on the 20th January. The Government Engines and the Engines of the Chinese Associations were assembled at the Cross Roads at 4 P.M., and thence No. 1 Steam Engine was taken to the Praya West. near the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company's Coal Godowns, and the whole of the Hand Engines to the Queen's Road at the West end of Circular Buildings, laying their delivery hose through the Gap toward the centre of Tai-ping-shan. The No. 1 Steam Engine supplied Sca water a distance of 360 feet to the Hand Engines; all worked satisfactorily.

  The repairs and New Cylinder for No. 2 Steam Engine having been completed by the Engineers of Her Majesty's Naval Yard (as sanctioned by the Senior Naval ?fficer) trials were held on the 22nd and 24th of January at the Naval Yard and as the Engine worked satisfactorily it was delivered over to me on the 25th January.

During the month the hose and implements at the Subsidiary Fire Stations were inspected and found correct and in order.

On the 28th January an Inspection of the Government Fire Brigade was held at the Cross Roads at 4 P.M.; the Steam and Hand Engines, Supply Carts, Hose and Implements, Fire Ladders, Fire Hooks and Ropes, Hose Reels and Hose in store, and the personal equipment of the men, were examined and found clean, in good order, and fit for inmediate usc.

  The following Annual Report on the state of the Government Schools in Hongkong for the Year 1869, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 5th February, 1870.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN,

Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG, 31st January, 1870. SIR, I have the honour of presenting to you the Annual Report on the Government Schools in this Colony for the year 1869.

  2. Having entered so fully into the history of these schools in the last Annual Report, I do not deem it necessary to do anything more in the present one than to refer to a few matters of detail.

3. The arrival of a third English Master, in the course of last year, has added very considerably to the efficiency of the Central School. Subjects which, previously, could be attended to with great difficulty have now become a regular part of the school routine. Two new subjects, Chemistry and Geometry, have been added, and all the ordinary branches receive much greater attention than, in former years, could possibly be given to them. The additional assistance also enables the Head Master to have the whole school more completely under his own personal supervision. He is no longer, what he really was before, simply the teacher of three of the classes. It may be safely said that the school has entered on a new stage of progress.

  4. After long delay, the Laboratory is at last in full working order. Considerable difficulty was experienced at first, partly from the defective state of the apparatus, which had been lying unused for about two years, and partly from my own inexperience.

  5. The Lessons in Chemistry proceed slowly but, it is to be hoped, surely. The aim attempted is not the mere amusement but, as far as may be, the sound instruction of the boys in a department of science to which they have nothing corresponding in their own schools. Much interest in it is taken by them at present. It will be unfortunate if it is allowed to flag. It is not likely, however, that the indifference, real or assumed, of their countrymen to this and kindred studies will be any impediment here. The boys are too young in the art of dissimulation to feel that the gratification of a natural curiosity is a confession of inferiority.

6. Although additional assistance has been obtained, the number of scholars at the school has not been materially increased. This was not intended. With even a smaller attendance, there would be ample work for the present teachers, more especially as the gradual increase in the number of Village Schools necessitates the more frequent absence of the Head Master. The object to be gained is not, at present, the attraction of more scholars, but the thorough teaching of the school in its existing

condition.

HONGKONG, 31st January, 1870. SIR, I have the honour of presenting to you the Annual Report on the Government Schools in this Colony for the year 1869.

Through the liberality of His Excellency The Governor, The Honourable C. C. Smith, Dr. . Mr. Gerrard, and Mr. Wai A-kwong, in addition to the sum placed on the Estimates for the prizes of the value of two hundred and five dollars were awarded to the most deserving, at Public Examination. The encouragement thus given to the school should not pass unno- and the promises made for the coming year give good hope that the school has at last obtained ition to which it is not unfairly entitled. It is now time that when a stranger enquires, at places in Queen's Road and elsewhere, for the way to the Central School that he should not

rek

*. The presence of a number of the parents and friends of the scholars at the late Examination even greater encouragement than the liberality just alluded to. Hitherto, for reasons which it de diflicult to assign, the Chinese residents in the Colony have kept aloof from the school,--par- , even when living here, seldom taking the trouble to come and ask admission for their sons. What- ploure it may have given the boys to see this new feature in the day's proceedings, the pleasure by the teachers was of the most unqualified description. Nothing that has happened since the

was established has augured so well for its future prosperity.

. It may not be out of place in this Report to allude to the admission into the school of boys than Chinese. When the school was first made open to all, of whatever nationality, a few availed lives of the privilege. They remained but a short time. They were evidently disappointed. expectations and objections will be referred to presently. I am aware that many are anxious mission, but they hold back until the terms they dictate be acceded to.

10. By opening the school to all-comers, it was apparently expected that a special class would be for such as do not wish to learn Chinese. Others, who do not object to learning Chinese, object school-hours. They say that eight hours a-day is too hard a task on the energies of the boys. hrs, again, are exclusive, and wish their children to be kept entirely separate from the Chinese.

11. For a boy to come to the school and not to learn Chinese, it is simply a waste of time. There t be some common language as a medium of intercommunication between the teacher and his class. Nine-tenths of the class are, and will be, Chinese. Translation from. English into Chinese and from ase into English must therefore be the ground-work of the instruction, and, in the lower classes ally, the principal part of it. The mere reading of an English book will not, without a great te of time, give the reader a knowledge of the language. The sooner he understands what he reads better for his progress. For this reason, it is indispensable that every boy at the Central School would learn Chinese. Even an English boy, who understands what he reads, loses a great deal of

When translation is the work of the class he must sit idle unless he knows Chinese.

.....

12. The school-hours are confessedly long, and if it were possible to curtail them it would be e. Practically this is impossible. Two languages have to be learnt, one at least of which is very Cult of acquirement by those to whom it is their mother-tongue. After eight years' experience, after listening to many objections, I am only the more convinced that shorter hours are not con- tent with the efficiency of the school.

?

13. To those who wish a separate class and class-room, only one thing can be said. The Central is no place for them. This is not said from any want of sympathy with those who prefer the al to the mental training of their children. Their objections are well known and felt to be powerful. , the practical conduct of the school is the problem to be solved and, with that, exclusiveness is sistent. At the same time, if it were my province to say so, I should not hesitate to say, that act with the Chinese boys at this school would not be productive of half the harm to which children Constantly exposed by being left, as they are, so much in the hands of Chinese servants.

ject, however, which cannot be discussed further herc.

This is

14. There are now six Indian boys, principally Parsees, in the school. These make no objections

learning Chinese, and some of them acquire it rapidly. One of them carried off the first prize in arth class, which numbers thirty-four, although two of the subjects of examination,-subjects,

with the highest marks, were translation. How such boys could advance at all for a few years, out a knowledge of Chinese, it is not possible to imagine.

15. The conclusion to be derived from a consideration of the whole question is this, that unless school is to be re-organized, to be, in a measure, diverted from the original and important purpose which it was founded, and to be conducted at many times its present cost, it is impossible to make 4cceptable to those who will not take it as it is.

1. The state of the Village Schools needs, this year, no special consideration. What they are, w they are conducted, how they advance, and how they fall-off, with the reasons for this, as far y em be assigned, are points which have been too frequently mentioned to require repetition. stem of Grants-in-aid, instead of complete support, is slowly advancing. Three such schools added during the year, the one at Ap-li Chau receiving a free site, and those at Hung-hom and Wan the usual allowance of five dollars a month. For all other information I refer you to- Following Tables.

VOL. II. NOTICE NO. 5

TONG-KING GULF.

  The following notice relating to the coasts of Cochin China and Hainan island has been compiled from information received from Lientenaut Rodney M. Lloyd, commanding H.M.S. Bouncer.*

(All Bearings are Magnetic.

Variation 1° 30′ Easterly in 1869.) COCHIN CHINA COAST.

  Choukshan:-The Mandarins informed Lieutenant Lloyd that the boundary line between China and Cochin China commenced at Choukshan, and not at Cape Pahkluug as shown on the chart.

Echun Island, about 22 miles S.S. W. from Choukshan, is about 24 miles long by 1 wide; there is a reef and an islet off its eastern

shore.

On the main land, and 9 miles west from Echun island, is an entrance, half a mile wide and 7 fathoms deep, leading into what ap- peared to be a small inland sea, bounded on all sides except the west by islands. There seemed to be other channels 7 or 8 miles apart between the large islands forming the sea front of this inland sea. From a distance these islauds may be taken for the main land.

Chung-lan Island lies about 6 miles from Echun island; it is 3 miles long, by about 2 broad, and forms with Gow-tow island a good harbour, the southern entrance being about half a mile wide, and the northern from 2 to 3 miles across; the anchorage is under the south-west extreme of Chung-lan, and from it the centre of Gow-tow island bore S. W. by W. There is also a good typhoon anchorage for small vessels near the centre of its western side. A reef about three quarters of a mile in extent, and awash at high water, runs out in a south-east direction from the southern shore. Fresh water can be obtained here, but it is hard and brackish at high water.

Gow-tow Island is not more than 24 miles across, although on the chart it is about 7. A reef, awash at high water, nearly 1 cables long, running N.E. and S.W., lies about 3 miles from the north-west point: this point may be rounded close to. There is a reef bearing West, distant 4 miles from the anchorage in Sha-pak-wan, the bay on the western side of the island. In the centre of this bay about 1} miles from the shore is a cluster of dangerous rocks awash at low water, bearing S.W. by S. from its north-west point, and a reef, break- ing in bad weather, extends for about 24 cables to the south-west from the south-western point of the bay.

There is a channel with 2 or 3 fathoms at low water between Gow-tow and the island three quarters of a mile northward of it, but a reef runs along the north-east shore of Gow-tow, coming close to the beach on its northern side. The best channel is found by keeping

close to this reef.

South-west of Gow-tow is an archipelago of small grotesquely-shaped islands and pyramidical rocks, covered with thick jungle in- terspersed with patches of lawn; they rise to a height of about 130 feet, and are steep to; numerous caverns are to be found on their shores, in some cases forming natural arches, having a depth of from 3 to 9 fathoms underneath them. There are some rocks awash bearing S.S.E. about 24 cables from the southern islands of this group.

The main land recedes from the general run of the coast line in the neighbourhood of these islands, forming a bay about 13 miles deep, named Fietze-loong.

Ounong or Apowan:-Is a point of the main land near the southern extremity of the above archipelago, forming the southern point of Fictze-loong bay; there is a passage to the northward of Ounong for small vessels leading out below the small town of Fafung, which

lies to the north-west.

The coast from this point takes a more westerly direction than shown on the chart, the latitudes obtained by observation placing the different headlands 10 miles to the northward of their present position.

TONG-KING GULF.

  The following notice relating to the coasts of Cochin China and Hainan island has been compiled from information received from Lientenaut Rodney M. Lloyd, commanding H.M.S. Bouncer.*

(All Bearings are Magnetic.

Variation 1° 30′ Easterly in 1869.) COCHIN CHINA COAST.

  Choukshan:-The Mandarins informed Lieutenant Lloyd that the boundary line between China and Cochin China commenced at Choukshan, and not at Cape Pahkluug as shown on the chart.

Echun Island, about 22 miles S.S. W. from Choukshan, is about 24 miles long by 1 wide; there is a reef and an islet off its eastern

shore.

On the main land, and 9 miles west from Echun island, is an entrance, half a mile wide and 7 fathoms deep, leading into what ap- peared to be a small inland sea, bounded on all sides except the west by islands. There seemed to be other channels 7 or 8 miles apart between the large islands forming the sea front of this inland sea. From a distance these islauds may be taken for the main land.

Chung-lan Island lies about 6 miles from Echun island; it is 3 miles long, by about 2 broad, and forms with Gow-tow island a good harbour, the southern entrance being about half a mile wide, and the northern from 2 to 3 miles across; the anchorage is under the south-west extreme of Chung-lan, and from it the centre of Gow-tow island bore S. W. by W. There is also a good typhoon anchorage for small vessels near the centre of its western side. A reef about three quarters of a mile in extent, and awash at high water, runs out in a south-east direction from the southern shore. Fresh water can be obtained here, but it is hard and brackish at high water.

Gow-tow Island is not more than 24 miles across, although on the chart it is about 7. A reef, awash at high water, nearly 1 cables long, running N.E. and S.W., lies about 3 miles from the north-west point: this point may be rounded close to. There is a reef bearing West, distant 4 miles from the anchorage in Sha-pak-wan, the bay on the western side of the island. In the centre of this bay about 1} miles from the shore is a cluster of dangerous rocks awash at low water, bearing S.W. by S. from its north-west point, and a reef, break- ing in bad weather, extends for about 24 cables to the south-west from the south-western point of the bay.

There is a channel with 2 or 3 fathoms at low water between Gow-tow and the island three quarters of a mile northward of it, but a reef runs along the north-east shore of Gow-tow, coming close to the beach on its northern side. The best channel is found by keeping

close to this reef.

South-west of Gow-tow is an archipelago of small grotesquely-shaped islands and pyramidical rocks, covered with thick jungle in- terspersed with patches of lawn; they rise to a height of about 130 feet, and are steep to; numerous caverns are to be found on their shores, in some cases forming natural arches, having a depth of from 3 to 9 fathoms underneath them. There are some rocks awash bearing S.S.E. about 24 cables from the southern islands of this group.

The main land recedes from the general run of the coast line in the neighbourhood of these islands, forming a bay about 13 miles deep, named Fietze-loong.

Ounong or Apowan:-Is a point of the main land near the southern extremity of the above archipelago, forming the southern point of Fictze-loong bay; there is a passage to the northward of Ounong for small vessels leading out below the small town of Fafung, which

lies to the north-west.

-There is a reef half a mile off the western point of entrance to this harbour.

The coast from this point takes a more westerly direction than shown on the chart, the latitudes obtained by observation placing the different headlands 10 miles to the northward of their present position.

Per Point:--The reef off this point can be passed close to; it appears to extend from the coast about 2 cables in a north-west By:---The sand bank off Chappoo uncovers at low water, but it is placed too far out; II.M.S. Bouncer, in steaming from t of the bay, passed 2 miles to the northward of it. Heong-po, which is placed on the chart 2 miles to the southward of its joon, is a good anchorage during a typhoon.

Just to the northward of Hoi-ta is a reef covered at low water, about 3 miles long, and three quarters of a mile from the roaching it the soundings decrease rapidly from 7 to 3 fathoms, and then to 8 feet, in a distance of 200 yards. Between and Hoi-ta good water can be obtained, but the shore is foul for the distance of one mile from the beach. Two small standing in the plain by themselves, and in front of the range behind them, form good land marks for Hoi-ta to vessels com- the south-west: from the north-east these hills appear as one, but are still remarkable.

   Font:--Slight shelter will be found here in the south-west monsoon, and a little good water may be obtained. The coast is ceni-ta and this point. A low sand extends from this point to Back-li Bay, with a ridge of hills 3 or 4 miles inland.

A reef

     Boy:--A low sandy beach runs from the spit off Sce-ku-sha point, the north horn of the bay, to the point marked "reef” art, where it terminates in a curious domed shaped hillock visible some distance to seaward, and making like an island. vers at high water, and extends about 200 yards from the shore, runs from this point to the anchorage off the water port of Back-li, Tung-tow, which is a small creek in the sand, with a depth of from 5 to 6 feet at high water. Between Tang-tow and See- ant there are sand flats on which the sea breaks: a depth of 24 fathoms at low water was found at a distance of about 2 miles a top shore, and at half a mile from these banks.

koll bay is a bad anchorage in the south-west monsoon.

   aik-li bay the Bouncer passed about three miles from Pyramid point, and steering 6 miles off the land kept outside all the A low sandy beach with hills from 4 to 5 miles inland extends round the whole of the west coast.

Niebow is a bad anchorage, having only shelter for junks in a small creek. Two islands marked on the chart as 10 miles W. by N. Hatton island (which lies off Nychow) do not exist. Two hills standing on the low sandy point which extends further out than is

wa, and appearing as islands to vessels coming from the south-east or north-west, may account for this error. -

Current:--During the passage from Gow-tow island to Hoi-how on the north coast of Hainan a current of 3 kuots an hour was

need to the N.N.E.: this was after south and south-westerly winds of a week's duration.

SHIPPING.

   2. It is satisfactory to find that the trade of the Colony in 1869 shows an improvement on that of the previous year, and although the difference of grand total of European shipping and of Junks is but 23,593 tons, the excess in British ships is 45 vessels measuring 41,615 tons, and in Foreign ship- ping, exclusive of Chinese, is 135 vessels with a capacity of 95,230 tons, or a total of 180 ships and 136.845 tons, the difference being made up by loss on the Junk Trade.

3. This large increase of trade is mostly due to the extended traffic between the Colony and Australasia, the United States, the Phillipine Islands, and Japan.

4. The trade between this and British India remains nearly the same.

   5. The amount of tonnage arriving during the current year will probably exceed that of any other similar period during the Colony's existence.

   6. The successful opening of the Suez Canal, the anticipated doubling the number of steamers belonging to the Messageries Imp?riales, and to the Pacific Mail Company, together with two newly formed local Steam-ship Companies will add immensely to the activity, progress, and it is to be hoped, wealth of the Island.

7. The total average of ships of all classes exclusive of Chinese and Native Craft lying here daily was, in January, 109; February, 100; March, 81; April, 78; May, 73; June, 90; July, 100; August, 103; September, 138.4; October, 154; November, 132.5; and December, 131.3; or the daily average throughout the year was 107.5; 18.7 per cent being vessels propelled by steam.

JUNK TRADE.

8. On this subject I am not able to report favorably. During the year there has been a falling off in arrivals of 2,222 vessels equal to 113,252 tons. It is however satisfactory to find that this decrease is not the result of local legislation, as in my last annual Report I was able to shew an increase of tonnage in 1868 as compared with 1867 of 142,996 tons.

   9. In the 13th paragraph of that Report I alluded to the action of the Chinese Government in having then recently established Customs stations in the vicinity of the Colony. I think the decrease of tonnage in Junks can reasonably be attributed to the existence of these stations and to the activity

of the Cruisers attached to them.

   10. Whether the result of this policy has been beneficial to the Chinese Imperial Treasury it is difficult to say, but it is a fair assumption, unsatisfactory though it be, that if the Junk trade of Hongkong has decreased, so, in proportion must that of the Ports with which the vessels traded.

   11. Although the close blockade kept up by these Cruisers appears to be producing a bad effect on the native shipping of the Colony, it may eventually result in the supersession of Junks by European vessels as carriers, to the ultimate advantage of the foreign snip builder and trader.

   12. Between the Cruisers and the rumored possible appointment of a Chinese Consul at Hongkong, the destruction of trade in native vessels and ruin of the sea-faring population of China trading with Hongkong seems imminent.

   13. Of the arrivals of Junks, those froin Macao shew a diminution of 298 measuring 51,227 tois, so that the neighbouring Colony would appear to be suffering equally with ourselves and probably from the same cause.

   14. In a few instances Junk Masters have reported that officers from the Chinese Revenue Crui- sers have searched their vessels whilst in Colonial Waters, when prompt measures have been taken to obtain redress and to prevent a recurrence of the offence. The constant cruising of the Victoria outside the Harbor and visits of the Blanche have doubtless been an effective check on the proceedings of Chinese Officials in these matters.

   15. An important Commission was appointed by His Excellency, consisting of Officials and Merchants, to enquire into the result of the application of the Harbor and Coasts Ordinance (No. 6 of 1866) to the Colony, and to determine if any and what changes the present immunity of the Colonial waters from Piracy rendered desirable. The Commissioners' Report is in the hands of the Government.

EMIGRATION.

16. In the return under this head it will be found that there has been an increase of 9,408 Adults, or 47.4 per cent on the return for 1868.

   17. The increased traffic is principally to San Francisco, which is resuming the position it held in that respect previous to the American War.

18. The rapidity and greater comfort offered by the vessels of the Pacific Steam Ship Company have obtained them great success, native passengers preferring this mode of conveyance to that by sailing vessels. 69 per cent of the Chinese conveyed to San Francisco during the year have gone by

those steamers.

19. A report was circulated in the Colony that women kidnapped in the province of Annain were placed on board these vessels to be conveyed to California for purposes of prostitution.

   20. Every measure which suggested itself to the Government with a view to ascertaining the truth of the rumor was adopted, His Excellency the Governor, the Attorney General, the Registrar General, the Police and some natives of Annam visited the ships to examine for themselves. The circulators and believers of the report were urged to give up their authority or produce some proof of the truth of their statements. At length the report was stated to have emanated from some Jesuit

residing at Macao, who were also questioned but who declared themselves unable to say anything

having heard that such was the case.'

*

""

1. A ship was laid on during the year for the conveyance of contract laborers to Peru. Emigra- that country from Macao had attained so unenviable a notoriety that the Captain and Owner gian ship thought to try the experiment of despatching a number of Chinese from Hongkong

to ascertain if a system could not be organised here that should be free from censure.

A draft contract was submitted to, and after some alteration approved by the Government, had no legal power at the time to prevent such Emigration. The amended contract contained stipulation prohibiting the employment of the laborers in the working of Guano. Two Emi- Depots were opened at West Point, and at first Chinese came in tolerably freely. During the nth 200 had been medically examined and registered in the books of this Department. 43. This apparent success of the scheme did not however last long, and Coolies presented themselves instances only to avail of the good food and lodging which the Dep?t offered. Many left to seek nent elsewhere, whilst others were induced by small advances and promises of a better contract their way to Macao, where they have been finally shipped on terms not nearly so favorable.. 2. This scheme cannot be said to have succeeded, as the ship did not get her complement of pas- until the first week in January last; 762 having been registered, whilst 382 only actually left Port, the absentees being at the rate of 50 per cent. It remains to be seen whether on arrival in In the terms of the contract will be fulfilled.

25. The Home Government and Charg? d'Affaires at Lima having lists of the persons embarked 40 copies of the contracts entered into, it may be presumed that no evasion of their contents will attempted.

    26. A large demand for labor in the Southern States of America, as also a request for a farther sup- of Chinese for Dutch Guiana has met with a check so far as the contract system in Hongkong is urned, the Home Government having prohibited it, except to British Possessions and in British

27. The American Agents have however decided to obtain the labor, leaving the Chinese free, on rival at new Orleans to enter into any agreement they may choose.

s. This is a novel and doubtful experiment, but the demand for labor in these States appears so ant that it is considered worth the cost of a trial. It is thought success may attend it on the mption that the Chinese, although now only verbally promising to serve a term of years (varying be three to five) will consider themselves morally bound to complete a contract on arrival at their tination if it is in keeping with the promises held out to them here. It has however been fully plained to those that have passed through this office that their freedom of action is undoubted, and have been assured, in the presence of the United States Consul, who was good enough to be pre- wat on the occasion of 140 being questioned, that they have the same protection in the country to

ch they are proceeding as they find in Hongkong.

29. These Emigrants are procured without the intervention of Chinese brokers, an extensive olation of notices in the Colony and neighbouring Villages being the only means employed to obtain . This system will doubtless in the first instance prove a slow process, but the Agents trust to Evorable reports sent to China by the earlier arrivals to enable them to engage laborers more rapidly suring the fall of the present year.

REGISTRY OF SHIPPING.

30. 16 vessels have been registered and 13 have been struck off during the year..

SEAMEN.

1. Although there has been a larger amount of shipping frequenting the port during the year, is no great difference in the number of seamen shipped and discharged, the year under review biting 7,113 of the former and 6,713 of the latter.

MARINE MAGISTRATE'S COURT.

      32. 239 Cases have been tried as against 198 in 1868, the principal complaints being those of k. fral of duty.

EXAMINATIONS FOR THE POSTS OF MASTERS AND MATES IN THE

MERCANTILE MARINE.

3. Of 40 Applicants for examination under this Ordinance, 20 per cent failed to obtain Certifi-

   This is a large proportion, but is owing to the want of opportunities for study and the means . paration for examination.

COCHIN CHINA COAST.

      Aan--The Mandarins informed Lieutenant Lloyd that the boundary line between China and Cochin China commenced at te, and not at Cape Pahklung as shown on the chart. Arkan Island, about 22 miles S.S.W. from Choukshan, is about 2 miles long by 13 wide; there is a reef and an islet off its eastern

main land, and 9 miles west from Echun island, is an entrance, half a mile wide and 7 fathoms deep, leading into what ap- a small inland sca, bounded on all sides except the west by islands. There seemed to be other channels 7 or 8 miles apart large islands forming the sea front of this inland sea. From a distance these islauds may be taken for the main land. alan Island lies about 6 miles from Echun island; it is 33 miles long, by about 2 broad, and forms with Gow-tow island a ur, the southern entrance being about half a mile wide, and the northern from 2 to 3 miles across; the anchorage is under the extreme of Chung-lau, and from it the centre of Gow-tow island bore S.W. by W. There is also a good typhoon anchorage Vels near the centre of its western side. A reef about three quarters of a mile in extent, and awash at high water, runs out

ast direction from the southern shore. Fresh water can be obtained here, but it is hard and brackish at high water.

Island is not more than 23 miles across, although on the chart it is about 7. A reef, awash at high water, nearly 13 cables S.E. and S.W., lies about 3 miles from the north-west point: this point may be rounded close to. There is a reef bearing 4 miles from the anchorage in Sha-pak-wan, the bay on the western side of the island. In the centre of this bay about 14 the shore is a cluster of dangerous rocks awash at low water, bearing S.W. by S. from its north-west point, and a reef, break-

ather, extends for about 24 cables to the south-west from the south-western point of the bay.

   * 4 channel with 2 or 3 fathoms at low water between Gow-tow and the island three quarters of a mile northward of it, but slong the north-east shore of Gow-tow, coming close to the beach on its northern side. The best channel is found by keeping

reef.

of Gow-tow is an archipelago of small grotesquely-shaped islands aud pyramidical rocks, covered with thick jungle in- with patches of lawn; they rise to a height of about 130 feet, and are steep to; numerous caverns are to be found on their cases forming natural arches, having a depth of from 3 to 9 fathoms underneath them. There are some rocks awash about 21 cables from the southern islands of this group.

   and reccdes from the general run of the coast line in the neighbourhood of these islands, forming a bay about 13 miles. Fitze-loong.

 Apnea --Is a point of the main land near the southern extremity of the above archipelago, forming the southern point by there is a passage to the northward of Ounong for small vessels leading out below the small town of Fafung, which

   Consignees and Masters of Ships are hereby informed that, after the 15th Proximo, the Boundary, North of which Vessels shall not anchor, is as follows:-

Kellet's Island bearing E. by S. S.

All Ships to be properly moored with 35 fathoms Chain (East and West).

NOTICE.

   Any persons who have in their possession old Registration Tickets belonging to Servants who have left or have been dismissed, are requested to send the same to this Office, with any remarks, on separate papers, they may wish to have recorded.

   It would much tend to the more satisfactory working of the Registration of Domestic Servants, if Registration Tickets were in every case kept completely out of the possession of the Servants themselves. On the dismissal of a Servant his Ticket should be sent to this Office, unless it can be handed at once to his new Employer, and should on no account be confided to his own custody.

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE, HONGKONG, 8th March, 1870.

    I have the honour to transinit herewith the Blue Book Returns for last year which are ted with this Department.

to my having so lately resumed the duties of my post, I am unable to furnish a general of the doings of the past year, and will, therefore, only refer to one or two subjects, connected

Chinese Community, which are niatters of interest and worthy of note.

haps the most important point to which I should call attention is the manifest desire shown by e substantial and intelligent members of the Native Community to take a part in public matters reader some assistance to the Government in Chinese affairs.

s feeling took an active form, when in 1867, the inhabitants of the several Districts of this ing on the provisions of certain Sections in the Registration Ordinance, recommended a body District Watchmen to be paid for by themselves, whose duties should be connected with the portion of the City.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19?? MARCH, 1870.

These men have done good service during the past year and continue to render valuable assistance in preventing and detecting crime.

Again, regard for the wants of the destitute sick led the Chinese Compradores, Merchants and others to consider the feasibility of building and supporting a Hospital. This matter has been under consideration and discussion for about three years, out of which has been matured a scheme likely to meet adequately the charitable object in view.

The subscription lists shew that the collections have already reached Forty-seven thousand Dollars. By Government a site, near Possession Point, has been granted, and on this the Buildings, calculated to hold about 140 patients, will be erected. In addition however, a donation of $15,000 from the Special Fund has been devoted towards the expenses of the undertaking.

  That the institution will be well conducted, and be a great boon to those for whom it is intended there is every prospect.

  Three Doctors of good repute will be engaged, on one of whom will specially devolve the task of vaccinating all those brought for that purpose to the Hospital. There is at present a Native Doctor who, on four stated days in each month, attends for this purpose at the neighbouring building and he reports having been successful in 275 cases since the 14th December last. The system adopted is that which is in vogue in Western countries, while to ensure as far as possible that the patient be brought back to the vaccinator after the expiration of seven days, the fee of twenty cents is promised to be returned, and this inducement has in almost every case had the desired effect.

  The Fire Brigade still meets with the hearty co-operation of the Chinese, who have now on foot the establishing of a Salvage Corps to work with the Brigade.

  To refer to the trade of the Native population, of course as usual, it is impossible to forward accurate returns, and the Department has to depend for information, on the statements of different leading firms. But one and all concur in the fact that a great depression still continues, and in some instances, as Cotton, is very marked. It is stated that in respect of this article only 110,000 bales have been exported in place of 200,000 in the previous year, while of Rice there has passed through Hongkong only the small amount of 335,000 peculs. The abundant harvest, however, of 1868 will account in a great measure for the falling off in so important an article of trade.

  In Sugar it is estimated that the Native trade did not exceed 150,000 bags, thus shewing a consi- derable decrease compared with previous years.

That sold from the Refinery at East Point is not, I learn, much consumed by the Chinese here, as it is dearer than the other Sugar, and does not possess, in their opinion, the same amount of sweetness. It may be interesting to note that of live stock (the majority of which comes from T'am-Shui, in a neighbouring District) about 39,600 Pigs, 9,000 Bullocks and 3,240 Sheep have been slaughtered in. the Eastern and Western Slaughter Houses for the use of the Community and shipping.

In the Markets there has been an increasing improvement in the Meat and Vegetables therein sold and both are slightly cheaper. Indeed as regards the latter they frequently compare well with those grown in the numerous private gardens in the Colony.

  The dealers, however, complain of a depression in this trade and report sales amounting only to $146,000 against nearly $165,000 in the previous year. Still the Revenue derived by Government from the various lettings in the Markets being in 1869 $31,941.08 against $32,131.18, shewing a decrease of $190.10, exhibits the fact that in the different kinds of business a thriving state continues.

   The trade in Salt Fish remained on the decrease as had been the case since the establishment of the cordon of Revenue Stations in our neighbourhood. Ping-chow and Tam-Tsai opposite Macao, have apparently reaped the benefit of the falling off of the trade here, but I am glad to report that this year has opened with a great improvement and the dealers in this important trade are anticipating better times than the last three years have produced.

A large business has been done in prepared Opium, the exports to Australia and California reaching an aggregate of about 2,562,000 taels in weight. The value of this Opium is 5 mace and 5 candareens of silver per tael, so that the value of the amount exported was $1,950,000. In Hongkong about 648,000 taels weight was purchased.

The rent of Chinese houses has fallen about twenty-five per cent. during the year and there are about 250 houses in some of the principal streets alone empty and There was very little building unoccupied.

In the few buildings, however, both in the Foreign and Native districts, which have been erected or restored, attention has been paid to a recognized system, which has a decided tendency towards utility as well as appearance.

In conclusion I may refer to the Ordinances which are peculiarly connected with this Department. The Registration Ordinance still works satisfactorily, and under it 663 Householders have been regis- tered, while the re-registration or removals amounted to 169, thus shewing the changeable nature of the Native population in the Colony. Regarding the Registration of Servants, matters remain almost in statu quo, owing to the lack of co-operation on the part of Employers.

The Special Watchmen complain that they are unable to display the same success as formerly, owing to the manifest decrease in crime. They have been engaged in 48 cases of any note in the

Police Courts.

  Any persons who have in their possession old Registration Tickets belonging to Servants who have left or have been dismissed, are requested to send the same to inis Office, with any remarks, on separate papers, they may wish to have recorded.

It would much tend to the more satisfactory working of the Registration of Domestic Servants, if Registration Tickets were in every case kept completely out of the possession of the Servants themselves. On the dismissal of a Servant his Ticket should be sent to this Office, unless it can be handed at once to his new Employer, and should on no account be confided to his own custody.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

No. 35.

  His Excellency SIR RICHARD GRAVES MACDONNELL, C.B., directs the publication of the subjoined Annual Report of the Hongkong General Post Office, for the Year 1869.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, IIongkong, 28th March, 1870.

Νο. 19.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG,

19th March, 1870.

SIR,-I have the honor to present to His Excellency SIR RICHARD GRAVES MacDonnell, C.P., the tenth annual Report on the Post Office, being that for the year 1869.

2. The alterations of any importance which have taken place in the Postal service are as follows, viz : 3. The Imperial Postmaster General consented to an application made by the Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company that they might be allowed to convey the Yokohama Mails from and to Hongkong direct, instead of via Shanghae as theretofore.

  4. This change doubtless afforded satisfaction to the mercantile community of Yokohama, whose correspondence with the United Kingdoin vi? Suez is materially expedited by the new arrangement.

  5. The time allowed for the voyage from Hongkong to Yokohama during the north-east mon soon is 170 hours, and in the south-west monsoon an extra allowance of 24 hours is made for the packets from Yokohama; but the service has not been satisfactorily performed hitherto. The Packets nearly always exceed the time allowed, and in one case more than 13 days were occupied in the voyage to Yokohama with a fair monsoon. These delays are attributable to various causes, the most import- ant of which are that the direct course from Hongkong to Yokohama has been little travelled, and is not yet thoroughly surveyed, and furthermore it traverses the region of typhoons and constant bad weather. On two occasions during the year, the homeward British Contract Packets started after their appointed time owing to the late arrival of the Mail from Yokohama.

  6. The practice referred to in the 15th paragraph of the last Peport on the Post Office, under which Mails brought to Yokohama by United States' Packets were forwarded to Shanghae by British Packets when time could be thus saved, and Mails brought to Hongkong by British Packets were, under similar circumstances, forwarded to Yokohama by United States' Packets, has, under the new plan for performing the Japan Mail service, necessarily come to an end.

7. The book and pattern post has been reestablished between Hongkong and the Australian · Colonies.

  S. A reduction has been made in the rates of postage chargeable on packets of printed papers and patterns if under 2 ounces in weight sent between the United Kingdom and Hongkong. This alteration applies to all printed papers other than newspapers, and to price lists, printed circulars and market reports.

  9. The registration of letters and other descriptions of correspondence and the transmission of book packets and packets of samples of merchandize at low rates of postage, between Hongkong and each of the Postal Agencies in China and Japan, and also between any two of such Agencies, has been sanctioned both as regards articles sent in the Mails by Private Ships and those sent by the British Contract Packets.

  10. Arrangements have been completed for the transmission of Maile by the fast Opium steamers plying between Calcutta, the Straits, and Hongkong. These steamers are now classed as Indian Mail Packets, instead of as private vessels, and the correspondence thus conveyed is governed by the same rules as to rates of postage and conditions of transmission as govern the correspondence sent by the British Contract Packets.

  11. The privilege granted some years ago to Officers serving on board Her Majesty's ships of war abroad, of sending and receiving their letters at a reduced rate of postage, and which was subsequently extended to Officers in the Army serving abroad and in the Colonies, ceased at the end of the year.

12. The route by Brindisi has been adopted since November last for the transmission of letters and papers addressed to the United Kingdom and to places beyond the United Kingdom. The adoption of this route has been urged by the Italian government on the grounds that accelerations hav taken place in the Italian Railroad services, and that improvements have been made in the harbor f Brindisi. The public nevertheless do not appear to have sufficient confidence in the facilities afforde! and only 308 letters and 71 papers have been sent in the 8 Mails despatched up to this date, and about an equal number have been received since the inauguration of the new route in London in September, 13. The Postmaster General of the United States has discontinued the employment of the Postal Agents heretofore in charge of the Mails conveyed by the Pacific Mail Steam Ship Company's steamer on the line between Hongkong and San Francisco, and their duties have been assigned to the Purser of these vessels; the French Post Office has also withdrawn the Post Office Agents on the line betwests Hongkong and Shanghae; the Mails by French Packets are now exchanged between this Office and the British Post Office at Shanghae instead of as formerly, with the Post Office Agents on board the

Packets.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND APRIL, 1870.

? 157

11. A reciprocal exchange of books, pamphlets and patterns, in the Mails transmitted between Yokohama, San Francisco and the United States generally, by the United States' Packets carried into operation.

15. The whole of the postal Agencies in China and Japan have been thoroughly inspected during t year, and the result of the examination thereof was submitted in my letter of the 23rd September last, No. 57.

!

1. The advantages derivable from occasional personal inspections of these Agencies are manifold, At the public and to the members of the postal service generally. Opportunities are thereby

to the Postmaster General of seeing with his own eyes that adequate facilities are at all times il to the Public in the receipt, transmission and delivery of their letters, and of effecting such ements, as circumstances may require. I therefore embody in this Report such portions of the art of the tour of inspection as may be useful.

1. At all the Ports, except Shanghae and Yokohama, the Post Office duties are performed by malar Officers, (who are, in some cases, the junior Officers of the service;) and, on this account, not to be expected that the work can be so thoroughly done as it would be by experienced ers of this Department; at the same time, I observed that they took some interest in the effective ment of the postal labor imposed upon them. A complete code of instructions for their use has en printed and forwarded for their guidance.

      is. Arrangements have been made for the continuance of the amalgamation of the British and Lal Post Offices at Shanghae.

19. Communication between Shanghae and Hongkong by the British and French Mail Packets the numerous other vessels now running is constant, and under the new agreement the Local Office of Shanghae has undertaken to hand to the Agent of this Department all loose letters ved from Hongkong. The British Office at Shanghae is largely availed of and the duties are per- d satisfactorily to the public, who, among other advantages, reap the full benefit of the system sorting their letters at sca, without any charge whatever. The system of sorting the Mails at sea veen Hongkong and Singapore, and between Hongkong and Shanghae has been successfully

rried on.

20. The building occupied conjointly by the British and Local Post Offices is not well situated. 21. A new Post Office has been erected at Yokohama on a plot of ground obtained from the vernment of Japan, and it is now occupied. This building being near the Hatoba and centrally ated, is found convenient and equal to the requirements of the public. The present prospects of this eney are however by no means brilliant, and I feel sure that so soon as the public have full con- ence in the regular and speedy transmission of Mails to the United Kingdom vi? San Francisco and Sew York much of the correspondence will be sent and received by that route.

    22. In paragraph 12 of the Report of 19th July, 1867, it was estimated that some additional ex- lture would be necessary at Yokoha?na, and since then a Clerk at $720 per annum and a Shroff 216 per annum have been appointed to the Agency there.

23. Yokohama was not at that tine, however, a place of call for the Contract Packets, as it is and therefore all the revenue collected on Local letters sent and received accrued to the Colony; **these letters are now carried by the Contract Packets, almost exclusively, the revenue goes to the rial Post Office; in fact since the British Packets commenced running under Contract, the tes of the Yokohama Post Office has been, with but little or no exception, for the benefit of the rial Post Office; at the same time, like the other Agencies, it collects and delivers letters the tage on which swells the general Colonial revenue of the Department.

24. The completion of the Pacific Railway from San Francisco to New York has necessarily ted most of the letters for the United States from their former course of transmission by the Packets, vi? Marseilles and vi? Southampton, to the more direct and quicker route now afforded United States' Packets running from Yokohama vi? San Francisco.

25. The discontinuance of the British Mail Contract line between Shanghae and Yokohama has a injurious effect upon the revenue of the Yokohama Post Office, whilst the French Post Office deprives it of some of its business.

At Nagasaki the opportunities of sending and receiving Mails have considerably diminished. present the United States' Mail Packets to and from Shanghae afford the only regular means of alcation, but as I mentioned in the Report of my tour, I was unsuccessful in the attempt I made these vessels to carry the small English Mails between Shanghae and Nagasaki; arrangements ven made however under which some of the merchants at Nagasaki have their correspondence firms at Shanghae who repost it at the American Post Office there to be forwarded in the United Mails to Nagasaki; and therefore some of the inconvenience which might otherwise have been need at Nagasaki has been averted; but much inconvenience, which I regret I am unable y, is still felt from the non-receipt of home Mails at regular intervals; as it often occurs that three Mails from home reach Nagasaki at the same time, owing to their having been delayed at le for want of an opportunity to send them across.

  In view of the reduction in the business of the Post Office Agency at Nagasaki, the salary of nt has been reduced from ?100 to ?10 per annum; the Expenses of that Agency have recently

excess of the revenue.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND APRIL, 1870.

  23. At Hiogo the Post Office Agency has been in existence so short a time that it is unnecessary to say more than, that from the representations made to me and from information gained on the

spot, its establishment will, I feel sure, be a boon to the inhabitants of Hiogo and the adjacent Ports of Kobe and Osaca.

29. At the ports of Swatow, Foochow, Ningpo and Nagasaki, the Consulates are so much more distant from the anchorage of the steamers than are the merchants' quarters, that very few letters, except those to be forwarded by the Mail Packets from Hongkong, are put into the Post Offices, therefore most of the letters for Hongkong are placed loosely on board, and, in many cases, I fear, are handed to the steamers' Agents here, who distribute them without the agency of the Post Office, a practice which I regret to say all efforts to put an end to have failed; it is, however, right to say that the Agents of the Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company, of the Messageries Imp?riales and of the Pacific Mail Company are exceptions.

30. At Canton and Amoy, although the Consulates are conveniently situated, the number of letters for Hongkong which are posted is very inconsiderable, in fact at all the places mentioned in this and the previous paragraphs, the Post Offices are used chiefly for the receipt and delivery of letters to and from home, the sale of Postage Stamps, and, in exceptional cases, for the registration of letters. I am satisfied that no possible alteration that could be made would induce the merchants to send their letters through the Post Office while the steamers are closer at hand, and while they offer the advantage of a later receipt of letters than the Post Office can possibly give.

31. Under the provisions of Clause 3 of Ordinance No. 8 of 1862 correspondence sent between Canton and Hongkong is exempt from the exclusive privilege of the Post Office, and it is therefore not to be expected that the public will pass their letters through the Post when they can lawfully send and receive them otherwise free of charge.

32. The number of Chinese letters daily sent between Hongkong and Canton is very large. Various Offices for their reccipt exist at both places, and on the passage they are taken charge of by a man who travels for the purpose, or by some one connected with the steamer who has a share in the enterprise; on arrival they are delivered and a fee of about 30 cash or three cents each is .collected; no system of prepayment of postage exists.

33. It is not, in my opinion, desirable to interfere with the practice as every means would of course be taken by the Chinese to evade the law if it were made incumbent upon them to send their letters through this Office, so long as the rate of postage exceeded that charged by private Offices, and were it reduced to the same level, the Revenue would probably be more than swamped by the additional expenditure incurred. As regards the correspondence of foreigners it is very doubtful whether or not they would avail themselves to any extent of the security the Post Office affords if the postage was considerably reduced.

34. The Money Order system is much used at Amoy. There is no office there however, the place not containing inhabitants enough to justify the establishment of a Money Order Office yet, even if there were no difficulties in the way of doing so; but the Post Office Agent procures Money Orders from this Office for all who apply to him, remitting with his requisition the probable amount required to pay for them, and receiving back any excess in such remittances in Postage Stamps.

35. It was suggested in the Chamber of Commerce here on the 9th August last, that, on account of the vast importance of the trade of Foochow and the great revenue which the Imperial Govern ment derives from the duties on Tea exported therefrom, and also because it sometimes occurs that the Foochow steamer reaches Hongkong just after the homeward Mail has departed, or in too short a time before her departure, to enable the merchants to do their business and save the Mail, that steamers should be subsidized for carrying the Mails to and from Hongkong at the cost of the Imperial Post Office.

  36. Whatever the claims of the Foochow Community or those of their agents here may be to such an advantage, I look upon the matter as one of some importance to this Colony, and I feel satisfied that unless some step is taken to improve the Mail service, much of the business which now comes to Hongkong, will with the frequent and regular communication afforded by the four steamers run- ning to Shanghae, diverge to that place.

  37. There are two lines of steamers in existence between Hongkong and Foochow each calling at Swatow and Amoy on both their up and down trips, one belonging to the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company and the other to Messieurs Douglas Lapraik and Company; the former, run at somewhat irregular intervals and the latter very regularly.

  38. The estimated distance from Hongkong to Swatow is 180 miles; from Swatow to Amoy 120 miles, and from Amoy to Pagoda Anchorage 175 miles.

  39. The voyages are at present generally made thus: the steamers leave Hongkong at say 2 P.M. and arrive at Swatow at about 8 A.M. the next morning, leaving Swatow for Amoy at 5 P.M. and reaching that port at 5 A.M. the next morning, they then leave Amoy for Foochow (Pagoda Anchorage) at 3 P.M. and reach there at 9 A.M. the next morning, giving a steaming time of about 48 hours, and 19 hours in port at Swatow and Amoy.

  40. The vessels generally remain at Foochow 3 or sometimes 4 days, and return to Hongkong in about the same time as that occupied in the upward voyage, generally arriving back in Hongkong on the 9th or 10th day after having left here, and they usually remain for 5 or 6 days discharging and loading for the return trip.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2nd APRIL, 1870.

159

The prompt transmission from Hongkong to Foochow of the Mails from home is not of the rtance as the regular dispatch of Mails from Foochow to Hongkong, whilst to the steamer is most important to have a liberal allowance of time at Hongkong after the arrival of the Mail, and the time of departure from Foochow is not usually of much importance as the cargo Foochow to Hongkong is insignificant when compared with that carried in the contrary Under these circumstances, therefore, the payment of any subsidy would really be for the of despatching the steamers from Foochow at times convenient to the Mail services and to ments of the foreign merchants. At present, the vessels of Messrs. Lapraik and Co. notedly depart at intervals of about the same extent as would be required of them for the Mail but the owners, of course, now hasten or delay their departure as best for their own interests, se being large shippers, as I understand, the arrival and departure of English Mails is not

A moment to them.

5. The arrangement I have suggested is that an offer be made to the owners of one or other or lines of steamers to give them half of the revenue derived from the local correspondence to and fro, conditionally upon all letters, being duly handed over to the Post Office Agents of the Ports touched at, with a penalty of $20 for each letter otherwise conveyed save and (such as are exempt by Law,) viz. the letters of the owners or of the consignees of cargo then and the vessel.

1. Such an arrangement would, I am satisfied, materially increase the Colonial revenue, ace having fully convinced me on a recent journey from Foochow that immense numbers of are systematically carried in Lapraik's vessels and handed over to the steamer's Agents at the ports named, and, I believe, that many are almost as regularly brought here in the same and delivered by the Agents to the persons to whom they are addressed.

1

5. As the payment suggested would not be sufficient to induce the owners of the steamers to to the above proposal, the Imperial Post Office should be called upon to contribute a further sum, on to the proposed payment from local funds, towards the maintenance, as suggested, of a ar communication with Foochow in connexion with the Mail steamers. The more especially so as rester part of the correspondence to be forwarded to and from Foochow would consist of letters which the Imperial Post Office receives a large proportion of the postage.

4. The bulk of the Mails will be a matter of little or no consideration, as the Mail for Swatow

a exceeds one bag, and those for Amcy and Foochow seldom exceed three bags each.

17. The terms of any Contract should be assimilated, I think, where possible, to those contained Contract made between the Postmaster General of Great Britain and the Peninsular and Oriental

Navigation Company on the 19th November, 1867.

1. These suggestions are thrown out with a careful regard to all legitimate interests and the growing wants of the public.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND APRIL, 1870:

WO-

52. The following statement shews a total increase in the Revenue of 1869, over that of 18es. amounting to $8,364.29; but as the amount of uncollected revenue at the end of 1869, $1,375.16 less than that which was outstanding at the end of 1868, the actual excess of total reven in 1869, as compared with the revenue of 1868, is only $6,989.13, of which $6,191.20 belongs to the Imperial Post Office and the remainder, viz., $797.93 to the Colony.

  53. This increase in the Imperial Revenue is accounted for by the Mails for the United Kingdom per French Packet having been made up at the British Post Offices at Shanghae and Yokohama. instead of as in the previous year at the French Post Offices at these places. The direct servic between Hongkong and Yokohama by British Contract Packets has also contributed to the Imperial Revenue, whilst it has lessened the Revenue of the Colony.

56. This increase in the expenditure of last year, as compared with 1868, is accounted for by the payment of the full year's salaries of the Marine Sorters in 1869, whereas in the previous year, they were only paid from the month of July, the time the system of sorting the Mails on board the British Contract Packets at sea began, and also by the additional charges for assistance it has been found necessary to give the Postmaster at Yokohama by the appointment of a Clerk, as well by an increase of $600 paid for the conveyance of Ship Mails, last year. The excess of the Colony's Postal Revenue over its ordinary expenditure for Post Office purposes during the past year amounts to $26,656.38.

The numbers of registered letters sent to and received from some of these places in 1868 comparatively small, and to others the system of registration had not been applied, there can fre be no complete comparison.

The number of Letters on Official business sent from the Department to private individuals , the Agents at the Ports, and to the various Public Offices during 1869 has increased by he number in 1868 being 1220, against 1689 last year, and the number of letters received has

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2xD APRIL, 1870.

70. I append returns, marked A and B, from which it will be observed that the British Contract Packets have arrived with the Mails from home with punctuality; that the average time occupie in making the voyage by these vessels has been a few hours longer in 1869 than it was in 1868; ani that 10 days is the quickest time in which a Mail has been conveyed from London to Hongkong by them; whilst the Mails despatched from London via Brindisi one day later than the Mails vi Marseilles, have invariably reached Hongkong with the Marseilles portion of the Mail. From another return annexed, marked C, it is shewn that the quickest time a Mail from London has been brought to Hongkong by the French Packets is 41 days. The average time occupied in the voyages by the outward French Packets, is one hour more than by the British Packets.

10

71. I also append a return, marked D, of the arrivals and departures of United States' Mail Packets at Hongkong by which it is shown that the lowest number of days occupied in the voyage from San Francisco to Hongkong during 1869 was 33, whilst the average time occupied in the voyage from San Francisco was 35 days against 35 days in 1868.

  72. The French Packets are to run fortnightly carrying Mails between the United Kingdom and China and Japan commencing with the Mail to be despatched from Hongkong on the 14th July; this service will afford weekly communication (vi? Suez) between the United Kingdom, France, &c., on the one side, and China and Japan on the other, by the British and French Packets alternately, and it is, I hear, in contemplation to inaugurate a fortnightly service, between Hongkong and San Francisco.

  73. The amount realized by the sale of Postage Stamps in 1869 was $155,785.52, of which Stamps of the value of $76,830.88 were sold in Hongkong, and the remainder, viz., $78,954.64, at the Post Office Agencies at the Ports, shewing a Decrease of $939.38, in those sold in Hongkong, and an Increase of $22,922.78 in those sold at the Ports, as compared with 1868.

  74. I annex a list of the number and value of cach kind of Postage Stamps sold in 1869 and 1868, shewing the Increase or Decrease, as the case may be, under each head, viz.:-

Colonial Secretary.

MAGISTRACY, HONGKONG, 5th March, 870.-· SIR,-I have the honor to forward to you, to be laid before His Excellency the Governor, the eport of the Government Fire Brigade for the month of February ultimo.

An Inspection and Parade was held on the 18th February. The Government and Volunteer 3ades assembled at the "Cross Roads" at 5 P.M.; from thence the "Hongkong Insurance Company's"

a Engine, and No. 1 Government Steam Engine, proceeded to the Praya near the "Five Lanes,'

    re both were got to work from the sea. The large size hose was laid down through "Gilman" set, and supplied a Tank from which No. 2 Government Steam Engine got a supply of water.

Government Hand Engine also got supplied froin the same source.

   The Hand Engines of the three several Chinese Associations were got to work near the Canton ner Wharf.

The whole of the Engines both "Steam" and "Hand" worked satisfactorily.

?

It occurred, as it has done on two previous occasions of Inspections, that the No. 1 Government. an Engine, in consequence of its great weight sank down when being conveyed along the Praya; occasioned some delay in extricating it. As this may reasonably be expected to happen again, e taken the precaution by having a Jack-screw and appliances obtained (to be conveyed with Engines) to raise it without delay.

A second "Tank" has also been made within the Jail which will facilitate the supply of sea ter from the No. 1 Steam Engine to other Engines.

   An Inspection of the Government Brigades was held at the "Cross Roads" at 4 P.M., 28th February. Steain and Hand Engines, the Hosc-reels, Coal-truck, Ladders, Supply Carts, Hose for service in store, Implements, Hooks and Ropes, and personal equipment of the Firemen were examined. found correct and in order.

I have the honor to be,

All were brought satisfactorily into work excepting the Hand Engine of the "Nam-pak" Hong, which from the break. ing of a "crank" was unable to act; this Engine has since been repaired.

No. 1 Steam Fire Engine sank into a hole on the Praya, but was extricated by the application of two Jack-screws, as referred to in my Report of 5th March.

An Inspection of the Government Brigade was held at the "Cross Roads" at 4 P.M., 31st March.

The Bill to co-operate with the Chinese Authorities for the Suppression of Piracy is brought forward for the Second reading, and His Excellency states that this Bill had been introduced in pursuance of Instructions from the Secretary of State for the Colonies, which directed the re-enactment of Ordinance No. 2 of 1868, now expired. The Despatch (No. 148 of 14 September, 1869,) conveying the above Instructions, is then read and considered.--After which, the Bill is read a Second ime, committed, and passed, bearing the Title of "An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to enable the Governor to co-operate with the Chinese Authorities for the Suppression of Piracy,"-being "No. 2 of 1870." On the representation of the Attorney General, who states that upon further consultation with the Members of the Profession he is desirous to submit a more comprehensive measure which he has prepared on the subject of the Admission of Attornies, and the Chief Justice concurring, the Bill relating to the Admission of Attornies is withdrawn by order of His Excellency. The Bill for the Establishment of a Chinese Ilospital is read a Second time, amended in Committee and passed, bearing the Title of "An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Ilongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, for establishing a Chinese IIospital to be supported by Voluntary Contributions, and for erecting the same into an Eleemosynary Corporation,"-being "No. 3 of 1870."

His Excellency then lays on the Table the Annual Report for 1869 from the Acting Captain Superin tendent of Police, and calls attention at considerable length to the Statistics of Crime in the Colony, just completed, from 1865 to 1869, by which a great decrease in 1869, amounting to 22.6 per cent, is evidenced in Serious Offences as compared with 1868, and 51 per cent as illu trated by Comparative Returns of the latter half of 1865, and the latter half of 1869. His Excellency concludes by stating that this Meeting of the Council may possibly, for some time af least, be the last over which he will be able to preside, as he is compelled by the state of hi healtlt to avail himself of the Leave of Absence to proceed to England, which had been accorde to him by the Secretary of State, though if possible, he would return from Japan for a short period to assist in passing the Estimates for 1871, before finally leaving for Europe.

pon, the Honorable the Chief Justice reads the following Address to Ilis Excellency:—

183

"As this is probably the last occasion on which I shall have an opportunity of addressing Your Excellency in public, I ask permission to say a few words before the business of this itting is closed, to express the regret we feel that a long and most arduous tropical service has caused a break-down-we hope only a temporary break-down-of your strength, compelling you to seek restoration in quiet in England. We trust that whether in higher office, to which on restored health we may anticipate your elevation, or in a prolonged life of hardly earned and dignified ease at home, you may find renewed enjoyment of life. It has been the misfor- ne of some, at least of one of us, to have differed from the policy of the Executive in some very important particulars. Divergencies in opinion are daily incident to public life, even in England, much more do honest differences, (occasionally expressed in too warm a manner,) necessarily arise here, where there is so much that is to us unprecedented and anomalous. It would be inopportune and improper on this occasion to comment on the policy of the Government, but there is a great merit in an able and vigorous carrying out of a policy, and if we may be permitted to say so, to this great merit Your Excellency's Government is pre- eminently entitled. Guarding myself individually from expressing concurrence in-indeed, having dissented from some of the measures adopted, I am bound to state what I think all will concur in, that on the results-the increased security to life and property, and great decrease of crime to which I have elsewhere referred, the extent of which is confirmed by the Statistics which Your Excellency has this day laid on the table-the materal improvements in roads, in buildings and in water supply-and also the increased educational advantages for the Chinese--on the foundation of a Chinese Hospital by Chinamen, helped by the Government, which we have this day established by Ordinance, and on the display by the Chinese of incr?as- ing interest in public affairs, Your Excellency's Government may well be congratulated. The traffic, which having been so designated by one of Her Majesty's Ministers, I individually may be excused for calling the Coolic slave trade, has been watched and regulated with jealous care, ever since your attention was first directed to it. That watchfulness has culminated in the Ordinance No. 4 of 1870, the last, the crowning act, of this day's Legislation, which will render, as we hope, enforced labour of Coolie Emigrants from this colony impossible. A generous liberality on all occasions, especially during the recent Royal Visit, has well sustained the dignity of your high office as the Representative of Her Majesty. We should be wanting in the duc expression of our own sentiments-the sentiments of the whole Community-did I omit to add that Lady MacDonnell as filed her exalted station with an urbanity of manner, and a kindness of heart, which will leave a grateful remembrance of the gentle courtesies which she has extended to all. No Lady who has presided at Government House, will have left the Colony, more deeply, or more generally regretted, than Lady MacDonnell." Honorable HUGNI BOLD GIBB next rises, and on behalf of himself and the Un-official Members of

the Council, says:-.

"I was not aware when entering this Chamber, that the Chief Justice had prepared an address to Your Excellency, or following the same course, I should perhaps have more dis- inctly stated what I wish now to say on behalf of my Non-official colleagues and myself. We dorse most heartily the expressions of good-will towards you that have fallen from the Chief Justice, for although we have sometimes found it our duty to differ from, and oppose the casures that have been brought forward in this Council, we have always felt that Your Excellency has been actuated with an honest desire to promote the well-being of the Colony. Apart, however, from the deliberations that have taken place around this table, having had an pportunity of becoming acquainted with the nature of some of your correspondence with Her Majesty's Government, I cannot help thinking and am glad to have this opportunity of saying so, that this Colony has great reason to be thankful for the manner in which you have guarded its interest. I refer more particularly to the establishment of the Chinese Cruisers and Revenue Stations around this Island, and further the proposed appointment of a Chinese Consul within the City, both matters, in my mind, affecting very seriously the interests of this Colony, and Although your efforts in preventing their existence have not in the one case been so successful as could be wished, yet we owe you a deep debt of gratitude for your exertions to that end. Again we have more lately to thank you for the able manner in which you have backed up the Memorial by this Community, in reference to the Convention lately made by Sir RUTHERFORD ALCOCK, and the Chinese Government. I trust, Your Excellency, that you are leaving us but for a short time, and most deeply are we concerned that ill-health should have attacked

yout

the eve of your leaving to avail yourself of your well earned leave. As regards the expressions regard and esteem made by the Chief Justice towards Lady MACDONNELL, we most sincerely concur, and whether to return to this place or in the more genial climate of home, we trust

may enjoy a long and happy life.”

Heney, addressing the Chief Justice, Mr. Gibb, and the other gentlemen, said that there were anes when words to express one's feelings did not occur readily; and as he had no notice of Bese friendly intentions until he was just entering the Council room, he confessed he was

entirely unprepared to mark his grateful sense of these kind expressions of feeling, especially, too, at a time when one's feelings were more than usually susceptible. He would be most heartily ashamed of himself, however, if he could not thank them--though not in adequate lan guage, at least with manner, spirit and feeling adequate to the occasion. He deeply regretted that he had to leave without winding up affairs in so satisfactory a manner as he could have wished; but it was his intention to return. And, whether he returned or not, it would be found from the records, however misunderstood he may have occasionally been by parties who had not access to accurate information, that he had exhibited a laborious interest in the Colony's welfare. He had great satisfaction in thinking this would be so, though they had differed as ta several points of policy---the Stamp Act and the Licenses, for instance. Nevertheless he believed the majority of the Community and the Council would now admit themselves in favor of these on the whole. He had always adopted a straight-forward course of action, and sought to conceal nothing. It had been said by some-for it happened to suit them to say so that the Council does not represent the public feeling of the Colony; but he denied the fact, and also that the public were not fairly represented. There were four unofficial members; and ther had been chosen partly because they were known to hold views on certain questions opposel to his own, as his correspondence with the Secretary of State would show. So little desirous was he to assume autocratic powers, that he had never influenced a member as to how he should vote; and he would say that none were better able than those now in the unofficial seats of the Council, to exercise a salutary influence. The influence of the Council was quite as great as that of any elective or non-elective assembly elsewhere; and the Estimates were always the estimates of the united Council, though as in every assembly there must at times necessarily be a few points on which they could not all agree. If the members had not interfered with his policy often, it was because they well knew there was no one actuated by a more thorough desire to advance the best interests of the Colony, than the Governor himself. He had

                               He had again to thank them on his own behalf, and more especially on behalf of Lady MacDonnell, who would be much gratified by their kind allusions to her. He hoped they would meet again, and have as good results to show as they had had this day. He begged them to excuse these very imperfect remarks, as he had not his former strength.

His Excellency then adjourns the Council at 10 minutes past 6 o'clock.

 Only three of the five cases of murder reported during the year were coramitted in this Colony In one the prisoners were brought here for trial, the crime having occurred on board the Britis! Barque "Nile" off Borneo.

 Of the three cases which occurred in this Colony the most atrocious were those of Mr. Holworthy Assistant Superintendent Military Stores Department, and of Police Sergeant Mahoney.

1. Mr. Holworthy was attacked when walking at mid-day on one of the hill-roads on 24t January; the object appears to have been robbery solely. Within two weeks information was receive that the stolen property--a watch and chain-was in a Chinese District about 40 miles from Hong kong. In May the names of the four men said to have been implicated in the murder were obtained and in July and August two of them were arrested, and the watch recovered in Chinese territory by the co-operation of Mandarin Chi?n T?ng (.) The two prisoners were subsequently tried convicted, and sentenced to decapitation in Canton by the Chinese authorities, as there exist m means, under

any treaty, of claiming the rendition of Chinese guilty of crime on British soil.

2. The murder of Police Sergeant Mahoney arose from a piratical attack on the Village o Shau'-ki-wan, by a party of twenty-eight armed men who landed from a junk. They were observe by two Punjaubee Constables on duty, who showed much courage in resisting them, and were bot}. severely wounded. Sergeant Mahoney, hearing the report of fire-arms, hastened to their assistance but appears to have been killed before he could use his arms. In this case, four men were convicted and sentenced to death; but they were subsequently released, -the principal witnesses for the prose cution having been convicted of perjury.

3. On the night of 18th February four armed men landed from a sampan in Deep-Bay, and attacked a lonely hut which is situated close to the beach, and was at that time inhabited by a fisher man named Ch?-a-Cheung and his wife. In attempting to protect his property the fisherms: received a wound in the neck, from which he died a lingering death in hospital. The robbers having ransacked the hut, and transferred the few articles worth taking to the sampan, shoved off, and wer out of sight long before the woman, who made the report at the Stanley Station, returned with the Police.

In this case, no clue has ever been obtained, nor under the circumstances, was it from the first at all probable that evidence would be forthcoming, as all the parties implicated had so speedily escaped beyond the jurisdiction of the local Courts.

4. Three Greeks were charged with piracy and murder in the nighbourhood of Shanghai, and were arrested, two by the local Police in Hongkong, and one by a Shanghai Constable, in Macao. It consequence of there being no Greek Consul in this Colony these men were subsequently released by the Supreme Court.

5. There is a very remarkable decrease in kidnapping compared with last and previous years viz:-68 cases in 1867, 53 cases in 1868, against 7 cases reported during 1869. This may partly attributed to the introduction of Ordinance 3 of 1868, which empowers the Supreme Court t award the punishment of whipping in addition to imprisonment, and also to a subsequent Proclamati- in the Government Gazette offering a reward of $20 for evidence leading to conviction of this offenc

6. With the exception of drunkenness, which is almost entirely confined to Foreigners, which, I regret to say, has increased by 169 cases, i.e. 27.2 per cent-compared with last year minor offences shew a large decrease.

(a.). This is probably much less than the real number of inhabitants, but the figures have been taken from the last census return. (b.) This proportion of Police to the population is smaller than that which prevails in some Indian towns, where the duties are ??

no means so difficult.

7. Prevention of Crime.--The success of the Police is so much enhanced by the deportation of fenders that every effort is made to arrest men of this class. In this we have received valuable tance from the Gaming-house licensees, who have, during the past year, caused the apprehension men who were convicted under Ordinance 9 of 1857; most of whom had been previously Leded and deported.

8. Assistance has also been received from the Native District Watchmen, who have brought up everal cases during the year.

   9. Night patrolling, both on horseback and on foot, has been efficiently performed and its value been especially shown on the roads above Victoria, at Pok-foo-lum, and British Kowloon, re several daring robberies have been averted by the opportune arrival of the Police.

10. The introduction of new Ordinances has doubtless reduced some serious offences; accidental rcumstances may also have contributed to the temporary diminution of crime, but I consider that teady decrease during the last four years may be reasonably accepted as proof that the exertions the officers of this department have not been wholly futile; and that, as regards the prevention of rine, the chief purpose for which a Police is maintained, the force has not been unsuccessful.

11. Detection.--The subjoined statement shews an improvement in the working of the Police as ted by the percentage of prisoners convicted and discharged. No reliable record has hitherto en kept of the number of cases traced, and the amount of property recovered, by the Police; but rms for this purpose are now being prepared.

12. It is impossible to lay down any standard in detection below which the working of a Police tree can be justly condemned. Success in this respect must depend quite as much on external rcumstances, such as the talent and dexterity displayed by the criminal classes, the natural features of the country, and the character of its natives,-as on the ability and exertions of the Police. As a remarkable illustration of this I may refer to the present deplorable state of Ireland, where numerous rarian outrages, of the most daring character, have hitherto baffled the ablest detective officers, se much so that it was lately stated by Lord Cairns in the Honse of Lords that in Ireland, during the ar 1869, out of 59 cases of murder and other heinous offences, including eighteen assassinations, in aly one had the criminal been discovered and committed for trial. Here the dishonesty of the na- Lives, on whom we have to depend for the detection of crime, renders it impossible to maintain an rganized detective Police. Indeed, if such a force did exist, I am of opinion that it would be of very le use, unless outposts could be maintained, under European supervision, at different points in the -On District, and in Canton and Macao; which, under existing circumstances would of course impossible.

13. There is ample evidence to shew that the perpetrators of most of the serious offences which Lave occurred in this Colony were inhabitants of Chinese territory. Many daring crimes have been lently planned beyond our jurisdiction. And, in most cases, precautionary arrangements were le by the depredators to secure a safe retreat before information could reach the Police.

14. From Appendix C it will be seen that larceny by servants has decreased in a very remark- le manner since the opening of licensed Gaming Houses, the average number of cases reported per ter during the years 1865, 1866, and 1867 being 82, compared with 25 during 1868, and 15 during

15. I take this opportunity of submitting a statement, Appendix D, of the working of the different nbers of the force, as tested by the number of persons arrested, convicted, and discharged; which as called for some months ago by Ilis Excellency the Governor, but in consequence of Mr. Deane's less, remained unfinished when he left the Colony on sick leave. This return shews the number of sous apprehended and the result of these arrests. In the Water Police, the European Constable charge of a boat invariably gets credit for all arrests, although in most instances he receives the rmation from Chinese Lo-kongs. For this reason the statement cannot be relied on in the cases Europeans, and Chinese; but, it is useful to show the comparative efficiency of the Sikhs and other an members of the force, in the performance of the most important duty of a Municipal Police,

16. In drawing this comparison it must be borne in mind that as yet the Sikhs have not had the same focal experience as other members of the Indian force, and little opportunity has yet occurred for weeding out the worst men, as in the case of the Bombay and Madras Constables, who have been selected from the large number of men brought on at different times from India. The worst men of cach batch having been discharged on the expiration of their first term of service.

17. From Appendix E will be seen the punishments inflicted on the force during the past year. No similar return was submitted last year, but I believe the conduct and discipline of the force to have considerably improved.

   18. The Sikhs, than whom there are no braver or more reliable men in a critical emergency, are becoming better acquainted with their work, and many have already acquired a slight colloquial knowledge of Chinese, and are making good progress in English; being regular attendants of the evening class established by His Excellency the Governor.

   19. Before suggesting any improvement in our present Police system, or deciding as to the class of men best qualified to perform the work, it is necessary to consider what the nature of the duty really is; a point which does not appear to have received sufficient attention from some who have advanced opinions on the subject. For the efficient performance of Municipal Police duty in the town of Victoria, we undoubtedly require many more Europeans than we now possess; but I fear little advantage would be derived from increasing the number unless the pay was also enhanced, as that now offered is insufficient to induce many good men to join.
