With reference to Notice to Mariners, No. 9, issued from this Department on 7th August, 1880, the Controller General of Egyptian Light-houses at Alexandria points out that the information therein contained-which was reprinted from the Notice to Mariners No. 111, issued by the British Hydrographic Office on 5th July, 1880—is inexact in some particulars. The following revised information is therefore published

1. Two floating light-buoys painted black are placed 897 yards seaward of the entrance of the harbour, from which lights may be exhibited on application at the Port Office-red on the northern side of the channel; green on

the southern side.

2. A fixed red light is shown from the extremity of the north mole head; a fixed green light, from the extremity of

the south mole head.

3. A fixed white light is shown from the extreme (western) end of the inner pier of the harbour.

NOTE. The foregoing green and red lights mark the channel into the port.

Entering Port Ibrahim-the red lights are left on the port hand, the green lights on the starboard hand, the vessel being steered for the white light on the inner pier.

Buoyage.

Also, that a buoy has been placed on each side of the channel to Port Ibrahim, 568 yards from the mole heads-the northern buoy in a line with the red lights, the southern buoy in a line with the green lights.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

(No. 212).

CHINA SEA.

Non-Existence of Sunken Rock Eastward of Hainan Strait.

With reference to Notice to Mariners, No. 113, of 5th July, 1880, on the existence of a rock reported to have been seen in 1880, by M. Rapatel of the French mail packet Oxus, also in 1878 from the English steam vessel Minerva, in a position 67 miles E. S. from Hainan head :-

Information has been received from Captain R. Napier, H.M. Surveying vessel Magpie, that having made an exami- nation extending over two days on and near the assigned position, no trace of shoal ground was detected.

The Magpie, under favourable conditions and with special look-outs from aloft as well as from the deck, sounded over an area extending 9 miles North, 8 miles South, and 10 miles both East and West of the reported position of the danger, but depths of not less than 38 fathoms were obtained.

Tide rips with heavy overfalls were repeatedly seen; these overfalls, near the reported position of the rock, were so heavy that a steam cutter was sent to examine what appeared to be shoal ground with broken water, but the depth found, when so near to the overfall that the boat was in danger of swamping, was 48 fathoms, mud.

Captain Napier is of opinion that it is improbable the rock reported exists within the space traversed by the Magpie. It has been removed from the charts.

(The bearing is Magnetic. Variation 1o Easterly in 1880.)

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

[No. 128.]

CHINA SEA.

CANTON RIVER AND DISTRICT.

Sunken Rocks.

The following Memorandum by Mr. PARKHILL is

published for general information:---

During the last few years several sunken rocks have been discovered in those navigable channels of the Canton River which are used by Foreign vessels. None of these rocks are marked on the Admiralty Charts, nor are they generally known to shipmasters frequenting this port.

The positions of the most dangerous rocks were ascer- tained and reported a few years ago, but, so far as I know,

no step has been taken officially to make them publicly

known.

So far as is at present known, they are:--

1. Three knolls of sandstone in the Eastern Passage

of the 2nd Bar, each having a surface of about

150 square feet, and about 4 feet above the bed

of the river, known respectively as--

(4) Wang Lan (橫瀾), the southernmost of

the three, having a depth of 9 feet on it at low water spring tides, is situated 500 yards from the east bank of the river.’From it 2nd Bar Pagoda bears

N. 66°50′ W., and the. See Cheetow Pagoda S. 75° W.

(B) 150 yards N. 24° E. from the Wang Lan

is Tai Tub (大西), the middle knoll

having a depth of 12 feet on it at low water. It is situated 405 yards from

the bank. When over it 2nd Bar Pagoda

bears N. 68° 44' W., and See Cheetow

Pagoda S. 74°20' W.

(C) Tai Kweichan (大龜產), having a depth

of 11 feet over it at low water, is the

north knoll of the three, and is 207 yards

N. 39° 30' W. from Tai Tub, and 507

yards from the east bank. When over

it the 2nd Bar Pagoda bears N. 71°50′

*This is only an apparent decrease; there has been an increase of Revenue on nearly all descriptions of Licences, but 1879's account includes 13 months' Opium Licence Fees, as the present Farmer paid the Fee for January, 1880, in December, 1879. + Supreme Court fees are now paid by stamps. Fines for breaches of the Opium Ordinance have been paid over to the Opium Farmer since February last year. In 1879, one of the River Steamers was fined $10,675. Hence the apparent decrease. ✦ There is a falling off in tees for the Storage of Gunpowder. M. S. TONNOCHY,

INSPECTORATE OF SCHOOLS,

HONGKONG, 27th January, 1881.

SIR,---I have the honour to forward under this enclosure a tabulated summary of the grants earned by the various Grant-in-aid Schools, amounting to $7,319.77, and, owing to the approach of the Chinese New Year, I beg to recommend that the money be paid at once.

The Estimates for 1881 provide only the sum of $6,900 for the purpose; so that there is an excess of $419.77, which is caused by the in- creased number of the Schools now under the Grant-in-aid System.

I reserve all remarks as regards details of the working of the Grant-in-aid Scheme during the

past year for my Annual Report, and have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient servant,

E. J. EITEL,

Inspector of Schools.

Acting Colonial Secretary.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The following is published for general informa-

By Command,

FREDERICK STEWART,

Colonial Secretary's Office,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

Hongkong, 4th February, 1881.

HONGKONG

GOVERNMENT CENTRAL SCHOOL.

INDEPENDENT EXAMINATION.

[In C.S.O.29 of 1881.]

MINUTE BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE Governor.

The annual prize examination of the Central School, which to some extent is a test of the way the Masters do their work, should be conducted, as in every other Colony, by Examiners other than the Masters.

I should be glad if Dr. STEWART would suggest the names of a few gentlemen who would be competent to conduct the necessary examination.

J. POPE HENNESSY.

(Signed)

11th January, 1881.

REPORT BY THE ACTING COLONIAL SECRETARY.

The Rev. Dr. EITEL, Mr. Justice SNOWDEN

(who takes a great interest in education), the Rev. Dr. CHALMERS and the Rev. Mr. LECHLER

occur to me as the names of gentlemen who would be competent to conduct the necessary examinations.

The Rev. Dr. MURRAY MITCHELL, a great Indian educationist, now the guest of Dr. CHALMERS, might feel inclined to join in the examination. A comparison of results here and in India would be satisfactory.

11th January, 1881.

(Signed) F. STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

MINUTE BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR.

I approve of all those selected by Dr. STEWART,

and as the boys are mostly Chinese and the examination will be partly in Chinese, let the Honourable NG CHOY and Dr. WONG be added to the Examiners.

The examination should be conducted as pre- scribed in the Grant-in-aid Schedule for Schools

in which a European education is given with Chinese in addition.

(Signed)

J. POPE HENNESSY.

MINUTES OF PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD

APPOINTED TO Examine the GOVERNMENT

CENTRAL SCHOOL.

Tuesday, 18th-25th January, 1881.

Members of the Board:-

The Hon. NG CHOY.

Rev. Dr. CHALMERS.

Rev. R. LECHLER.

P. R. SMITH, Esq.*

Dr. WONG, and

Dr. EITEL.

Dr. CHALMERS said that he presumed the

Inspector of Schools would ex officio act as Chairman, whereupon Dr. EITEL, as such, opened

the meeting by reading to the Board all the documents in C. S. O. 29 of 1881 which ex- plained how His Excellency the Governor came to appoint the Members of the Board as Examiners of the Government Central School on the present occasion, after the Masters of the School had, without the knowledge of the Governor, begun and nearly finished their own examination of the School. Dr. EITEL specially mentioned, that in 1879 the Governor had informed the Secretary of State of his intention not to allow the conti- nuance of the system of having the Central School annually examined by its own Masters only, but that both in January 1880 and in January 1881 the examination was held in the same way as before, without the knowledge of the Governor, until the circumstances detailed in C. S. O.29 of 1881 drew His Excellency's attention to the matter.

Dr. EITEL further mentioned that after ordering the Masters' own examination to be stopped, the Governor had been asked by the Acting Head Master to allow the Masters to finish their examination for their own satisfaction, but that the Governor had decidedly refused to allow this examination to be continued, as he wished the present Board, appointed for the purpose, to institute an independent examination of the School de novo. With reference to the order of the Governor that the Inspector of Schools should arrange the preliminaries of the examination to be held by the Board, Dr. EITEL laid before the Board, and explained in detail, a scheme he had drawn up, in consultation with Dr. STEWART and the Acting Headmaster, Mr. ARTHUR, for the examination of the Central School,-1stly in English, 2ndly, in Chinese, and 3rdly, in certain special subjects, on the basis of the provisions laid down in the Grant-in-aid Schedule.

Dr. CHALMERS said that whatever the object of the Governor might or might not have been in ordering the examination by the teachers of the School to be stopped and in appointing separate Examiners, he wished to propose the following resolution for adoption by the Board:--

* Added to the Board, on account of the illness of Mr. Justice SNOWDEN.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH FEBRUARY, 1881.

“ That we, finding the teachers of the Central School were in the middle of a process of ex- amination, nearly finished, permit them to finish that, and then take further measures to test the School.”

Dr. EITEL reminded Dr. CHALMERS that the documents he had read to the Board showed that the Governor had appointed the Board for the purpose of instituting an independent examina- tion on the basis of the Grant-in-aid Scheme, and that the Governor had twice ordered the discontinuance of the Masters' examination.

Mr. NG CHoy said he would second Dr. CHAL-

MERS' motion, in consideration of the shortness

of time and of the difficulties in the way of the

Board examining the boys independently.

Dr. EITEL stated that this resolution, if passed, would put the Head Master into a false position,

necessitating his disobeying the explicit orders of the Governor.

Dr. CHALMERS asked if the Members of the Board were forbidden to put the questions again,

which the Masters, orally or in writing, had already put, to the boys.

Dr. EITEL replied that the Members of the Board had been asked to conduct a new and independent examination on the basis of the

Grant-in-aid Schedule, that the examination

begun by the Masters was not in accordance with the rules laid down in that Schedule, and that therefore the Board was not asked to finish what the Masters had begun and then to test the School somehow, but to conduct an entirely

new and independent examination on the prin-

ciples of the Grant-in-aid Schedule.

Dr. CHALMERS said that he maintained that, as a Member of the Board, he was free to ask the boys again the same questions which had been asked by the Masters, or which they were about to ask. Dr. CHALMERS-wished to know decisively whether or not he and the other Members of the Board could do so.

Mr. NG CHOY said that when he seconded the

proposition he did not consider the words "permit

the Masters," and would suggest that Dr. CHAL-

MERS should substitute the words "ask them to help us," in which case he would second Dr. CHALMERS'motion.

Dr. CHALMERS said what he wished was that the little portion of the examination held by

the Masters which was left unfinished, be finished

for the convenience and help of the Board.

Mr. LECHLER remarked that the Board could

not ask the Masters to continue an examination which the Governor had twice ordered them to discontinue.

Dr. CHALMERS said he wished to amend his

previous motion, and moved :-

"That we, finding the teachers of the Central School were in the midst of a process of examina- tion, nearly finished, instruct them to finish that, and then take further measures to test the School." Mr. NG CHOY declined to second this resolution.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH FEBRUARY, 1881.

Mr. SMITH then proposed the following resolu- tion for acceptance by the Board :-

"That, having regard to the loss of time and to the inconvenience likely to be occasioned, more particularly to the pupils, by further delay, the Board proceed to examine the School on the basis

of the Grant-in-aid Scheme as placed before us by Dr. EITEL and approved by the Head Master,

the Examiners having due regard to the circum-

stance that the School has already undergone a Masters' examination, now nearly concluded, and

that the work of the School has not been carried

on with a view to benefits to be derived under that Scheme, and that further the Examiners

reserve to themselves the privilege of asking for

the production of such examination papers and

of taking such assistance from the teachers as

may seem to them just and reasonable.”

Mr. LECHLER having seconded this resolution,

Dr. CHALMERS said he was entirely opposed to it unless the papers already begun by the pupils of

the School were completed by them.

Dr. EITEL asked if the examination papers

were required by the Board as a basis for their examination, or merely to compare the results of these papers with the eventual results of a new

and independent examination by the Board.

Dr. CHALMERS said he had already seen the

papers, at least some of them.

The motion of Mr. SMITH being put to the vote,

it was agreed to by all, with the exception of Dr. CHALMERS, who remarked he had doubts whether he would have time to go through this examina- tion, and said that this was a violent proceeding, dangerous to the School.

The details of the scheme arranged by Dr. EITEL for the examination of the School in English

were then formally accepted, the Acting Head Master, Mr. ARTHUR, having been called in and assured the Board that he had considered the details, in consultation. with Dr. STEWART, who

also agreed with him in saying that this scheme

was fair to the School.

Dr. EITEL next explained the details of the scheme he had drawn up, in consultation with Dr. STEWART and Mr. ARTHUR, for the examina- tion of the School in Chinese, and proposed

that Dr. CHALMERS should conduct this examina- tion, assisted by Mr. NG CHOY and Dr. WONG, as a Sub-Committee.

Dr. CHALMERS said that if the examination be- gun by the Masters was not to be finished first, would decline to act on a Sub-Committee.

Dr. EITEL then read the list he had prepared,

in consultation with Dr. STEWART and Mr. AR- THUR, of the special subjects in which some of the classes were to be examined, and proposed that the Government Analyst, Mr. HUGH MACCALLUM, should be invited to assist the Board in the examination of the Chemistry Classes. This proposal was agreed to by all the Members of the Board.

The Acting Head Master, in reply to a question,

stated that if he were asked to produce the finished and unfinished papers of the Masters' examina- tion, he would produce them at once.

the boys to finish without contravention of the Governor's explicit orders.

Dr. CHALMERS said he wished the papers to be finished for his guidance, and said he wished to know why he should not be free to examine

the School in any way he pleased, adding that if this was refused, he would not act on a Sub-

Committee, but only on the general Board.

Mr. ARTHUR said he would obey any decision by a majority of the Board as if it were an order by the Governor.

Mr. SMITH said it was for the Governor to decide whether Dr. CHALMERS might set the boys to finish any paper previously prepared for them by the Masters, and suggested that the

matter be submitted to the Governor as Dr. CHALMERS' Own suggestion.

Mr. NG CHOY said he did not see the necessity for the unfinished papers being given out to the boys to finish.

The meeting was then adjourned, the above

Minutes having previously been read over and

agreed to.

On re-assembling at 2.45 P.M., Dr. EITEL read to the Board the following Minute of the Gov-

ernor :--

"I have read the Minutes of proceedings which,

at the desire of the Examiners, have been commu- The resolution proposed by Mr.

nicated to me.

carried by 4 to 1, seems to me to be a very good

The examination can therefore proceed

one.

the basis of that resolution.

(Signed) "J. POPE HENNESSY.

18th January, 1881.”

Dr. CHALMERS stated that he had ascertained during the recess that nothing had been done by

the Central School teachers with regard to the examination of the Chinese Classes, and that he would therefore now withdraw his objections and consent to act on the Sub-Committee.

It was then unanimously agreed that the Board proceed at once to the examination of the English Classes, and that for the purpose the Board divide itself into three Sub-Committees of two Examiners each, each Sub-Committee taking one of the Di- visions of the Preparatory School and examining each boy according to the rules of the Grant-in- aid Scheme.

It was further agreed that the maximum of

marks should be in Standard I,-40 for reading,

30 for writing and 30 for Arithmetic; in Stand- ard II,-reading 80, writing 25, Arithmetic 25; that two-thirds of the marks be required for a pass in Arithmetic; that 2 mistakes be allowed in reading and writing 10 words in Standard I, and 20 words in Standard II, but that anything beyond that should be counted a failure; Dr. WONG and Mr. SMITH took the III Division, Dr. CHALMERS and Mr. NG CHOY the II Division, Mr. LECHLER and Dr. EITEL the I Division.

The subjoined Special Report by Dr. CHALMERS was presented and read to the Board:-

HONGKONG GOVERNMENT CENTRAL SCHOOL EXAMINATION.

MEMORANDUM, 25th January, 1881.

1. It has been my aim in all that I have said and done during this examination by the Board appointed by His Excellency the Governor, to secure that due allowance be made for the fact that both Masters and Pupils were taken by surprise, having had no warning that any Exami- nation was to be held, much less that it was to be conducted on the lines of the Grant-in-aid System, which fixes Standards for certain subjects to be aimed at by the Master throughout the year, but which are usually attained by more or less of what is called cramming at the close.

2. In making up the Schedules for Special Subjects, of which an abstract is herewith ap- pended, such allowances have been made as I consider fair for the unpreparedness of Masters, Pupils, and Examiners.

3. I consider that the Classes (I & II) examined in Mathematics have done very well.

六至生徒於歲 七至應考人數比平 歐德理參贊提舉

80

4. The higher Chinese Classes (I & II) have

done fairly well, as also the IIIrd and the Prepara-

tory Classes, the Schedules of which have already

been handed to Dr. EITEL.

5. The Classes for Translation are barely

passable. According to the Schedules prepared

by Mr. LECHLER and myself, if 50/% of the total maximum of marks be required for a pass, the results are :--

I CLASS.

6 passed, 17 failed,

III CLASS.

10 passed,

13 failed,

II CLASS.

4 passed,

17 failed,

IV CLASS.

14 passed,

As I have put them, however, allowing 45 %

On the whole, I incline to think that one-half

of those presented might be allowd to pass, placing

the Standard at the very lowest. But even then, scarcely anything has been attained above it. This is not very great success. And we cannot but remark on the fact that scarcely any of the Chinese boys produced in translation into English a single grammatical sentence. We were also struck by the absence of style in the renderings into Chinese, varieties of Canton Colloquial and even mandarin Colloquial being mixed up with book-phrases.

6. I do not condemn the system of moving up boys from lower classes to higher in the middle of the year altogether. Dr. STEWART, no doubt, could give good reasons for the practice; but I think there has been too much of it towards the close of the past year, which has seriously affected the results of the present Examination.

7. With regard to the total number of boys presented to us for examination, I think the

reason for its being much smaller than that of the School Roll must be obvious to any one, without detracting anything from the efficiency or disci- pline of the School. In order to get the true numbers, the Masters' Examination-papers and the answers they received should be compared with ours.

It was proposed by Dr. EITEL, seconded by Mr. SMITH, and agreed to nem. con.:-

"That Dr. CHALMERS' Report embodies the general views of the Examiners as re- gards the principal points to which it refers."

By Command,

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

GOVERNMENT GARDENS,

HONGKONG, 21st December, 1876.

SIR,-I have the honour of submitting the following Report on the Government Gardens for the information of His Excellency the Governor.

2. When I presented my first Report, on the 31st December, 1872, it was my intention to furnish one annually, but I was afterwards deterred from doing so by circumstances which it is not necessary to particularize. I now, however, have been induced to submit this Report in consequence of the fre- quent inquiries which have, from time to time, been made for it by the public. I venture to hope, therefore, that this effort to instruct and interest will be acceptable.

3. The very numerous inquiries on horticultural matters, and the increased interest taken in the private gardens of the Colony by the proprietors, indicate a healthy state of horticultural progress, which, no doubt, has been greatly stimulated by the Flower Shows which have been annually held in the Government Gardens for the last four years, partially under Government auspices, and especially favoured and promoted by His Excellency Sir ARTHUR KENNEDY.

4. Besides maintaining the old gardens in an orderly state, but little improvement or alteration has been effected in them, as the new gardens, which are about half an acre larger, have, in laying them out and planting, nearly absorbed all the extra time and means available.

5. One of the terrace banks has been broken up, new soil added, and a rugged appearance given by large rough stones brought down from the hills. It has been planted with a collection of succulent plants, such as Cacti, Agaves, Haworthias, Apicras, Fourcroyias, &c., and Yuccas, Beaucarnias, and Dasylirions, received in exchange for other plants and seeds, through the generosity of Dr. HOOKER, of Kew, and Messrs. HAAGE and SMIDTT, of Erfurt. A tolerably good collection has been brought toge- ther, and it will, doubtless, prove a very interesting feature in a few years, when the plants will have I attained good proportions. The collection has, already, an attractive appearance. As it increases, propose to carry it along other banks which are at present turfed over.

6. Along the terrace walk next to the Band Stand an avenue of trees has been formed of Grevillea robusta, the Australian "Silky Oak." It has, for the first year, made excellent progress.

7. A beginning was made this year of bringing together into groups the shrubs which are scatter- ed all over the lawns quite irrespective of any arrangement, picturesque or otherwise. This work, when the demands of the new garden begin to be less, should be continued until the whole presents an orderly and systematic appearance.

8. A good number of small trees of large growing species, newly introduced, have been planted near the sides of some of the walks, so that, besides the botanical variety, they will, when they grow up, supply an increased amount of shade and shelter, which are required by visitors and plants alike.

9. The parts of the new garden which have been put under cultivation are now complete so far as drains, walks, turfing, and planting are concerned, but, of course, every year will bring its own work in relation to transplanting and cultivation of plants, shrubs, &c.

10. Two plots of ground are reserved specially for Coniferous plants and Palms, to receive yearly additions as the new introductions become large and strong enough for final transplanting.

11. The Palms, generally, have made as satisfactory progress as could be expected in our soil and climate, but the growth is far short of what it is under more congenial conditions. I think, however, that when the plants are a few years older-some are yet but very small seedlings-they will well repay

the attention which they receive. There are now nearly 50 species in the gardens.

12. The Coniferous plants are being annually increased by new species. Nearly all the Japanese and Australian Conifers that have been tried have succeeded, more especially the latter, better than I anticipated when the first plants were procured. This is a class which, I think, does not receive so much attention in decorative gardening in this Colony as it should do.

13. Beds of Camellias and Azaleas have been made in positions suitable to their requirements, and both are in a vigorous state of health. Camellias, if grown in pots for more than a few years, are so difficult to preserve in health in Hongkong, that growers would find much more satisfaction in having

87

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH FEBRUARY, 1881.

them planted out, when they have convenience to do so. As soon as a convenient opportunity offers, we ought to introduce some of the excellent varieties of both Camellias and Azaleas which are in cul- tivation in Europe. A collection of new varieties of Azaleas was sent out from England a few months ago, but, most unfortunately, the Captain of the steamer in which they were, put them between decks on the passage up from Singapore, and consequently all the plants succumbed to the absence of light, and possibly the accumulated heat.

14. A new Fernery has been constructed in the Glenealy Ravine, in the new gardens. One portion is planted chiefly with indigenous ferns, and the other side of the walk with exotic ferns, lycopodiums, and a few other shade-loving plants only. All have become well established, and are luxuriating in their new positions, especially the tree ferns (Alsophila tomentosa Hk., and Alsophila australis Br.). which have done remarkably well. It is my intention to extend this Fernery as new species are acquired

15. In the same ravine, and joining the Fernery, specimens of each of the kinds of Dracaena which we have have been planted in the open ground, and these also, by their health and size, show how well the situation agrees with them. These, as soon as we shall be able to propagate and distribute them, will, I am sure, become great favourites for pot cultivation, like the many varieties of Coleus which we have distributed, and which are now seen in almost every garden and verandah in the Colony.

16. The whole of the ground in the new gardens, and those places in the old ones where any- thing has been planted, was trenched to a depth of from three to four feet, the stone and rocks, where they occurred, blasted and removed, and where shrubberies and plants are situated, part of the poor soil has been removed, and quantities of a better nature, together with manure and decayed leaf-soil, substituted and mixed with the other soil. Many hundreds of gallons of ammoniacal liquor were poured on much of the soil at the time of trenching. For this liquor, which has also been extensively used for the fertilization of the grass on the lawns, we have to thank Mr. NEWTON, the Manager of the Gas Works, who has liberally allowed us to have the liquid for taking it away. The soil used for im- proving the garden soil is taken from the surface of the hills to a depth of a few inches, or as far as it appears to contain humus accumulated from the decay of the vegetation growing thereon. All this labour, which is necessary to improve the extremely hard and barren decomposed granite of which the garden soil is composed, renders planting works much more expensive than in countries where the soil is naturally good. Besides the heavy trenching and transport of soil, all the water which is used in the gardens during the dry season has to be carried from streamlets in ravines outside of the gardens. It is to be hoped that when the town obtains the projected new water supply, the gardens will receive some benefit from it, by having a continuous supply laid on at convenient places throughout the grounds.

17. Some Monkeys having been presented to the gardens, a house was erected for their accommo- dation. Several additions have since been made, and it is now tolerably well stocked.

18. An octagon shaped aviary was also constructed this year, for the reception of Queensland Parrots, &c., which my correspondents, Mr. W. HILL, Director of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, and Mr. L. A. BERNAYS, Vice-President of the Queensland Acclimatisation Society, have kindly sent up. Mr. HILL, also very kindly forwarded me a pair of Black Swans, which I wished to try on the Bowrington Canal, but, I regret to say, they frequently escaped into the harbour, and finally disappeared altogether.

19. An attempt was made to get the plants in the gardens labelled for the information of the Public, but from want of time to give that attention which the work required, I was obliged to abandon it, and merely to label a few plants in an obscure style for our own use only. I fully expected when I assumed the management of this Department, that long before this time qualified assistance to carry on this and other work would have been given. It is very much to be regretted that much useful work should have to remain unaccomplished for the want of a little assistance, which I have several times suggested; in fact, what in England are considered the most simple things in garden economy, cannot be effected here in consequence of this deficiency. A Chinaman who could read and write English would be of great service in keeping the plants labelled, receiving written instructions, getting together collections for distribution, arranging plants properly, and acquiring their names, &c. A man who could do such work could be procured for not more than from $15 to $20 per month.

20. The interchange of plants and seeds has been continually increasing, but I very much regret to say that, owing to want of convenience and aid to carry out the work properly, I have been com- pelled in several cases to decline attempting to establish interchanges with correspondents who have kindly offered to reciprocate in things that would be most valuable to this establishment. I may here take the opportunity of thanking the various firms and Captains of vessels who have kindly conveyed plants free of all charges for us, especially Messrs. GIBB, LIVINGSTON & Co., and the Captains of the steamers Argyll and Hindostan.

21. Since the last report the receipts have been 1,158 packets of seeds and 2,841 plants, from 51 contributors.

22. During the past summer I made a trip to India, and collected there, in Penang and at Singa- pore, a great number of plants and seeds, which I brought back with me, thus adding to the gardens about seventy valuable species which were not included before. Much useful information was also acquired, which has been and will be of great service.

23. The number of recipients of plants and seeds was 64, to whom 749 packets of seeds and 3,596 plants were sent.

I have drawn up a list of Plants which are in cultivation in these Gardens; it is in the printers' hands, and will shortly be ready for distribution.

TREE CULTIVATION.

26. Since my last report the cultivation of trees has been greatly extended in a new direction, viz., the rearing and planting of Pinus sinensis on the hills. Before this was done, trees were only planted along the streets and roads for shade; but now we annually plant many thousands on the hills above and surrounding the town. This tree is the one which has been found, by experience, to thrive the best of all yet tried on exposed situations; in fact, but few or none of those attempted (and experiments with other species have been made every year) will thrive at all on the higher grounds. Exposure and the hardness of the soil prevent the trees growing. All the trees experimented with on the hills, thrive well in made and sheltered ground in the gardens.

27. The whole of the Bowrington plantation has been replanted with Pinus sinensis, and the trees are now doing well.

28. In compliance with the wishes of Captain Superintendent DEANE, we have raised a quantity of the Blue Gum tree (Eucalyptus globulus), and planted them adjacent to the Police Stations at Cause- way Bay, Shau-ki-wán, Stanley and Aberdeen, for the sake of the prophylactic qualities which they are supposed to possess. During the past season the young trees have become well established.

29. The Surveyor General having complained of the injury caused to drains, channels, walls, &c., by the roots of Ficus retusa, with which nearly all the streets and roads are planted, I have introduced other kinds when vacancies have occurred owing to removals for street improvements and the de- struction of them by typhoons and other causes. So far, most of them have succeeded, but I anticipate, a greater annual expenditure to maintain them in a healthy and progressive state than is required for the Ficus retusa, as it is very doubtful if they will grow with as little attention to soil as the latter requires. Those planted have had the soil broken up and prepared as far as the roots have yet gone, and this work will have to be continued every year as the roots extend. To do this, it will be neces- sary to break up the roads, a proceeding which will not only be troublesome but expensive.

30. The following are the new species planted :-

Cedrela australis (Australian Red Cedar) Swietenia Mahogani (Mahogany tree). Castanospermum australe (Moreton Bay Chestnut). Dryandra cordata.

Ailanthus glandulosa.

Bauhinia purpurea.

Sterculia nobilis.

Do. lanceolata.

Camphora officinalis (Camphor tree).

Putranjiva Roxburghü.

Celtis sinensis.

32. The nutritious qualities of the Guinea grass (Panax maximum) being considered much greater than those of the indigenous grasses, and the supply being very limited in the Colony, a large quantity was propagated and planted on a piece of ground on the hill-side, and kept under Government manage- ment for two years. The Chinaman who was living on the ground and had the direct management of it, was then permitted to rent the farm from the Government, and he is now making his living by the sale of the grass. It was thought that when the Government had introduced the cultivation, other enterprising coolies would apply for ground to extend it, but, as yet, no one has done so.

GOVERNOR SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY, K.C.M.G., TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY.

GOVERNMENT HOUSE, HONGKONG, 2nd August, 1880.

MY LORD,-In Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH'S Circular Despatch of the 24th of February last, he presses upon my consideration the subject of the preservation and re-establishment of forests as one of great and increasing importance, in which the health and prosperity of the Colony may be very deeply

concerned.

2. Small as my experience of Her Majesty's Colonies has been, it has long since convinced me that there is a general tendency to under-estimate the necessity of local action on this subject, and that even in Colonies with apparently the most limited scope in this respect, something ought to be done. I have not, therefore, been entirely forgetful, since my arrival here, of the advantages of tree preservation and tree planting in Hongkong, but I was unwilling, until I could point to some actual results, to trouble the Secretary of State with any report of what I was doing.

3. On my arrival in Hongkong, I found that Mr. FORD was on leave of absence in England, and that tree planting had been temporarily placed under the superintendence of Mr. PRICE, the Surveyor General. Early in the summer of 1877, I advised Mr. PRICE that, on sanitary and other grounds, the operation of the so-called Forest Department should be extended. In reply to my enquiries on the subject, he had informed me that the waste lands of the Colony capable of being wooded comprised about ten thousand acres, and the average number of seedling trees planted per annum was about 15,000. In his report of the 28th of August, 1877, he said:

"If our planting operations were continued at their present tortoise speed, viz., at the rate of 15,000 "trees a year, it would take us eleven hundred years to complete the job."

4. In laying Mr. PRICE'S interesting report before the Legislative Council on the 12th of November, 1877, I said:-

"I think the time has come when the Colony should deal in a more comprehensive manner with "the question of tree planting, * * * with a vote of $2,000 a year to be expended on forming "nurseries for seedlings and paying a regularly organized staff of tree planters, we shall be able in a "few years to transform the appearance of this island and permanently improve its sanitary condition."

GOVERNOR SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY, K.C.M.G., TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY.

concerned.

5. The enclosed extracts from the local papers show that this proposal was well received. The Legislative Council not only sanctioned it at once, but, having watched the beneficial effect of the vote, they have allowed me to increase it from year to year, and I am now asking them to sanction an expenditure in 1881 of $10,000 on tree planting.

I

6. Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH was good enough to allow me (despatch No. 4 of 15th February, 1878) to engage, as a temporary measure, the services of a European Forester at a cost of $1,200 per annum. The engagement with this forester having terminated on the 31st of last December, have practically retained this sum on the Estimates by giving $600 additional to Mr. FORD, the Superintendent of Gardens and Plantations, and spending the remaining $600 on Chinese foresters, Clerk and Interpreter and General Works.

7. M. PRICE's report of the 28th of August, 1877, which I published in the Government Gazette No. 50 of 1877, undoubtedly_reflected on the Tree Planting Department. It was printed, however, during Mr. FORD's absence in England, and when I was not in a position to test the accuracy of all its details. Last October, Mr. FORD transmitted to the Colonial Secretary a Report on tree planting in Hongkong, in which he defends his Department from some of Mr. PRICE's criticisms. Mr. FORD also asserts that seventy-five per cent perished of the young trees planted during the time Mr. PRICE was in temporary charge of the tree planting.

8. No doubt, the great majority of the seedlings planted on the hill sides in 1878 and early in 1879, have died, and for the reasons given by Mr. FORD. So far, a serious failure has marked the first steps in my attempt at afforestation on a large scale. On the other hand, in the minor work of planting along the sides of the Kennedy Road and the Peak Road and in transporting large trees (30 and 40 feet high) to a short new road leading from St. PAUL'S College to Mr. GIBB's house, Mr. PRICE was entirely successful, though at a cost somewhat out of proportion to the limited result achieved.

9. That afforestation has now been taken thoroughly in hand, your Lordship will see from Mr. FORD's recent report of the 15th of May, 1880. Instead of planting out 15,000 trees per annum, Mr. FORD has already planted 60,000 this year, and he anticipates a total of over a quarter of a million for the year's work.

10. With the cooperation of the Chinese, to which Mr. FORD refers in paragraph 6 of his report, we may, perhaps, be able, from the middle of next year, to plant out half a million of trees per annum. 11. I have confined the planting to the native pine tree, the Pinus sinensis, only. The nurseries contain seedlings of indigenous oaks, casuarinas, and other hardy and valuable timber trees.

29. During 1878, about five thousand cocoa-nut palms were planted by Mr. PRICE on Stone Cutters' Island, at Bowrington, and close to the village of Aberdeen. These trees will be ornamental, though, at this latitude, they do not bear ripe nuts.

13. On the important sanitary question of cultivating the Eucalyptus in Hongkong, I have the honour to lay before Your Lordship a brief report by Mr. FORD, which I called for and printed in the Government Gazette in March, 1879. Up to that time, it appears that only four hundred seedlings of the Eucalyptus Globulosa had been planted in the Colony, and of these but one hundred survived. On receiving Mr. FORD's report, I instructed him to take the necessary steps for getting four thousand seedlings of another species of Eucalyptus which grows in a climate resembling that of Hongkong. I hope to increase this number to twenty thousand next year.

14. Accompanying Mr. FORD's report of May, 1880, are some photographs that may, perhaps, enable Your Lordship to understand more clearly what we have been attempting to do in the way of tree planting than anything I could say in a Despatch. No. 1 shows the Kau-lung nursery, containing this year's seedlings, with some patches of little trees two years old. The boundary of the British territory runs between the two hills at the right. The hills in the extreme distance are in Chinese territory. No. 2 is the Sò-kon-p'ò nursery, about a mile from the eastern extremity of the town of Victoria. The Chinese gardeners and farmers are very skilful in utilizing uneven and sloping ground so as to admit of irrigation, and this is well shown in the Sò-kon-p'ò nursery. In the left corner of the photograph are some groups of trees which have been preserved by the villagers who were settled on this spot before our occupation of Hongkong. No. 3 shows a spur of Mount Gough above the Kennedy Road and overlooking the harbour. All the trees on it have been planted within the last eight months. The Banyans on the left are about fifteen feet high; then come bamboos, indigenous oaks in the middle, and Pinus sinensis on the right, about six feet high. The hill visible on the other side of the water is Chinese territory. No. 4 is an avenue at Bowrington of bamboos, casuarinas and pines, planted five years ago by Mr. FORD. The pine trees on the hill behind the Forester's Lodge are a few of those that were on the Island when the British Flag was first raised. They are about forty feet high. No. 5 shows Victoria Peak, and some houses just behind Government House. The highest trees on the left are some of those planted in 1877. The darker mass lower down and just at the back of the houses, are trees planted by Mr. FORD in 1875. The Peak Road runs beneath this plantation, and through the plantations of 1877 and 1878. Under the road, and to the right, are nurseries of the tree planting Department, and higher up is a Guinea grass farm. In the foreground on the right are Pinus sinensis, planted by Mr. FORD in 1874, and on the left, indigenous vegetation. No. 6 shows the indigenous trees in what is called Little Hongkong Wood. I have ordered a careful survey of this district to be made, and I have asked Mr. FORD to prepare a special report on the best means of preserving and utilizing it.

15. I take this opportunity of laying before Your Lordship some papers that I printed for the Legislative Council last year respecting the rival claims of Mr. PRICE and Mr. FORD to be Superintendent of the Gardens and Tree Planting Department. Your Lordship had duly appointed Mr. FORD to this office in 1871; and Governor Sir RICHARD MACDONNELL issued the necessary Minutes, under which the Government Gardens and the Planting of Trees were declared to be under the sole control of Mr. FORD, who was to render all accounts for his Department.

16. Subsequently, Mr. PRICE arrived in the Colony and induced Governor Sir ARTHUR KENNEDY to make the Gardens a sub-Department of the Surveyor General's Office. Mr. FORD was, however, left the sole control of the aboricultural Department. During Mr. FORD's absence in 1877, I trans- mitted to Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH a further proposal of Mr. PRICE to get rid altogether of Mr. FORD. Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH did not, however, approve of this suggestion of Mr. PRICE, and he transmitted to me for my guidance a memorandum of Sir JOSEPH HOOKER, recommending that I should recur to the original plan and encourage Mr. FORD to enlarge the scope of his activity. Accordingly, I replaced Mr. FORD in the position to which he had been originally appointed by Your Lordship, and in which he had been installed by Sir RICHARD MACDONNELL. This was unani- mously approved by the Legislative Council. It was felt to be a simple act of justice to Mr. FORD, and it has contributed more than anything else to the successful afforestation of the Island that is now proceeding, and to the present satisfactory state also of the Government Gardens.

17. The enclosed Report by Mr. FORD on the Gardens and Plantations, dated 15th April, 1880, shows how well this interesting Department is now conducted.

SIR,-Before commencing tree-planting operations for 1881, I beg to have the honour of submit- ting the appended scheme of the proposed localities, and number of trees to be planted, and seeds sown in situ in them, for the approval of His Excellency the Governor.

The increase in the tree-planting vote placed at my disposal for next year, will enable us to increase the annual number of trees planted by the large number of 600,000, which will cover an area of about 500 acres, giving a total for next year of about 800,000 trees, on about 666 acres of land planted.

I have, &c.,

SIR,-I have read with interest the account given in your despatches No. 116 of the 2nd of August and No. 181 of the 2nd of November, of the planting operations which are being carried on in the Colony, and I am glad to express my satisfaction at the energetic steps which are being taken in this direction.

I wish to be kept informed, from time to time, of the progress which is made in preserving and re-establishing the woods and plantations of Hongkong.

The printed reports and photographs which accompanied your despatches, have, I presume, been transmitted to Sir J. HOOKER by Mr. FORD; if not, he should forward them at once, adopting the same course in regard to his Annual Reports in future.

By His Excellency's Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 12th February, 1881.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

DOWNING STREET, 22nd December, 1880.

SIR,-I have the honour to transmit to you, for information and publication in the Colony under your Government, a copy of an Order of the Queen in Council of the 20th of November last, exempting from remeasurement in this Country, ships of the Russian Empire and of the Grand Duchy of Finland, the measurement whereof, after the 20th of December, 1879, and the 1st of June, 1877, respectively, has been ascertained and denoted in the Registers and other National papers of such ships.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient humble Servant,

KIMBERLEY.

The Officer Administering the Government of

HONGKONG.

AT THE COURT AT BALMORAL,

The 20th day of November 1880~ `

PRESENT,

THE QUEEN'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

Whereas by "The Merchant Shipping Act Amendment Act, 1862," it is enacted that whenever it is made to appear to Her Majesty that the rules concerning the measurement of tonnage of merchant ships for the time being in force under the principal Act have been adopted by the Government of any foreign country, and are in force in that country, it shall be lawful for Her Majesty by Order in Council, to direct that the ships of such foreign country shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their certificate of registry or other national papers, and thereupon, it shall no longer be necessary for such ships to be re-measured in any port or place in Her Majesty's dominions, but such ships shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their certificates of registry or other papers, in the same manner, to the same extent, and for the same purposes, in, to, and for which the tonnage denoted in the certificate of registry of British ships is to be deemed the tonnage of such ships:

And whereas it has been made to appear to Her Majesty, that the rules concerning the measure- ment of tonnage of merchant ships now in force under "The Merchant Shipping Act, 1854," have been adopted by the Governments of Russia and the Grand Duchy of Finland, with the exception, as regards Russian steam ships, of a slight difference in the mode of estimating the allowance for engine room, and such rules are now in force in those countries, having come into operation at the following dates, viz. in Russia on the 20th day of December 1879, and in the Grand Duchy of Finland on the 1st day of June 1877:

HER MAJESTY is hereby pleased, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, to direct as follows:

1. As regards sailing ships; that merchant sailing ships of the said Russian Empire, the measure- ment whereof after the said 20th day of December 1879, has been ascertained and denoted in the registers and other national papers of such sailing ships, testified by the date thereof, and merchant sailing ships of the said Grand Duchy of Finland, the measurement whereof has after the said 1st day of June 1877 been ascertained, denoted, and testified as aforesaid, shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in such registers and other national

papers in the same manner, and to the same extent, and for the same purpose, in, to, and for which the tonnage denoted in the certificate of registry of British sailing ships is deemed to be the tonnage of such ships:

2. As regards steam ships; that merchant ships belonging to the said Russian Empire which are propelled by steam or any other power requiring engine room, the measurement whereof shall, after the said 20th day of December 1879, have been ascertained and denoted in the registers and other national papers of such steam ships, testified by the dates thereof, and that merchant steam ships belonging to the said Grand Duchy of Finland, the measurement whereof has after the said 1st day of June 1877, been ascertained, denoted, and testified, as aforesaid, shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in such registers or other national papers in the same manner, and to the same extent, and for the same purpose, in, to, and for which the tonnage denoted in the certificate of registry of British ships is deemed to be the tonnage of such ships: provided, nevertheless, that if the owner or master of any such Russian steam ship desires the deduction for engine room in his ships to be estimated under the rules for engine room measurement and deduction applicable to British ships instead of under the Russian rule, the engine room shall be measured and the deduction calculated according to the British rules.

NG CHOY,

Acting Police Magistrate.

CORONER'S OFFICE,

21st February, 1881.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward herewith, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, Returns of Coroner's Inquests, &c. for the year 1880.

Table A gives the total number of all cases, from which it appears that there were 60 inquests held in 1880 and 102 in 1879, while the number of burials without Inquest were, for 1880-133, and for 1879-104; the total number of cases coming under the observation of the Coroner being 193 in 1880 and 206 in 1879.

Table B gives the number of Inquests held, with the Verdicts obtained, nearly half being "Accidental death."

Table C gives the number of Burials without Inquest, with the reason why none was held.

or

It will be seen that nearly half of these were decomposed bodies and concerning which there was no evidence, all but one being unknown.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

II. In the interpretation of this Ordinance, the expres- sion "Governor of Macao" shall include the person for the time being administering the Government of Macao.

The expression "territory of Macao" shall extend to any place within the jurisdiction of the Government of Macao, and shall include the high seas.

The expression "Superintendent of the Gaol" shall mean the Superintendent of Victoria Gaol or the keeper of any prison or place of custody for criminals within this Colony.

III. In case requisition is at any time made by the Governor of Macao to the Governor of this Colony to deliver up to Justice any person who, being accused or convicted of any of the crimes and offences specified in the First Schedule of this Ordinance, and alleged to have been com- mitted either before or after the passing of this Ordinance within the territory of Macao, has taken refuge within this Colony, the Governor of this Colony may, if he in his discretion thinks fit, by Warrant under his hand and seal signify that such requisition has been made, and require the Police Magistrates to govern themselves accordingly and to aid in apprehending the person so accused or con- victed, and hereinafter referred to as the fugitive.

IV. Upon the issue of such, Warrant any Police Magis- trate may issue his Warrant for the apprehension of the fugitive, and if he be already in custody, issue an order to the Superintendent of the Gaol forthwith to bring the fugitive before him to be dealt with in manner hereinafter provided.

V. If the fugitive be apprehended, or if he be already in custody, he shall be brought forthwith before the Mag- ̋istrate, and the following conditions and regulations shall

be complied with:

1. There must be the production before the Magistrate of a valid Warrant of Arrest issued by a Judge or other competent Magistrate having authority within the territory of Macao to take cognizance of the crime charged, and clearly setting forth such crime. 2. In the case of a person accused but not convicted, such evidence shall be produced to the Magistrate as would in his opinion justify the apprehension of the fugitive if the crime of which he is accused had been committed within the jurisdiction of this Col- ony, with this qualification,—that copies of deposi- tions signed or taken before any such Judge or other competent Magistrate as aforesaid and authenticated in manner hereinafter provided may be received in evidence of the criminality of the fugitive.

3. In the case of a person convicted, a copy of the conviction, authenticated in manner hereinafter pro- vided, shall be produced: But if it should appear that the conviction was pronounced in the absence of the accused for contumacy in not having surrendered to take his trial, the same evidence shall be produced to the Magistrate as in the case of a person accused but not convicted.

4. In every case proof of the identity of the fugitive must be given to the satisfaction of the Magistrate. 5. Warrants of Arrest and copies of depositions, signed or taken before any such Judge or other competent Magistrate, as aforesaid, and copies of convictions, shall be received in evidence, if the Warrant of Arrest purports to be signed by such Judge or Magistrate and if the copies of depositions purport to be certified under the hand of such Judge or Magistrate to be true copies of the original depositions, and if the copy of the conviction purport to be certified under the hand of the Judge of the Court by which the fugitive was convicted to be a true copy of the ori- ginal conviction. The signature of every such Judge or Magistrate and his authority to take cognizance of the crime or offence charged, shall be sufficiently proved if the document purport to be sealed with the official seal of the Governor of Macao, and all Courts of Justice in this Colony shall, for the purpose of this Ordinance, take judicial notice of such seal, and shall admit the documents so authenticated by it to be received in evidence without further proof.

¿

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH MARCH, 1881.

6. The original Warrant of Arrest and the copy of the depositions, or, as the case may be, the copy of the conviction, shall be read to the fugitive, and he shall be asked if he has any valid cause to show why he should not be committed to Gaol to await the Order of the Governor in Council.

VI. If the fugitive fails to show cause to the satisfaction of the Magistrate why he should not be committed, and if the Magistrate is of opinion that there is sufficient primâ facie evidence to establish the criminality of the fugitive, he shall commit him to Gaol, there to await the Order of the Governor in Council: Provided that before any such com- mittal, the Magistrate shall inform the fugitive that a period of fifteen days will be allowed him to appeal to the Supreme Court if he shall think fit, under Section 7, or to apply for a writ of Habeas Corpus.

VII. Ordinance 4 of 1858 as to appeals from the deci- sions of Magistrates shall not apply to proceedings under this Ordinance, but the following rules as to appeals shall be observed, that is to say :-

1. If the fugitive desires to appeal to the Supreme Court against a Magistrate's Order of committal and notifies such desire to the Magistrate at any time before the expiration of fifteen days from the date of such Order; or if the Attorney General desires to appeal to the Supreme Court against a Magistrate's Order of discharge of a fugitive and notifies such de- sire to the Magistrate at any time before the actual discharge of the fugitive, the Magistrate shall, sub- ject to the provision in Rule 3 hereinafter contained, grant such appeal and transmit forthwith to the Registrar of the Supreme Court the depositions and all other documents relating to the case, together with any statement in writing which he may think fit to annex in relation thereto.

2. If the appeal is by the Attorney General against an Order of discharge, such Order shall be suspended until the conclusion of the appeal, and the fugitive shall be detained in custody until further Order of the Magistrate, or of the Supreme Court.

3. If the appeal is by a fugitive against an Order of committal and the Magistrate has reason to believe that the appeal is merely frivolous, he may refuse to grant the same.

4. In case the Magistrate refuses to grant an appeal to a fugitive on the ground that the same is frivolous, the Supreme Court may, if it thinks fit, upon the fugitive's petition in writing, setting forth the grounds of appeal, make an Order directing the Magistrate to grant the appeal.

5. The Magistrate shall cause notice of his intention to discharge a fugitive (otherwise than in pursuance of any decision of the Supreme Court), and also of any appeal by a fugitive against his committal, to be served upon the Crown Solicitor, and no fugitivę. shall be discharged by a Magistrate (otherwise than aforesaid), unless the Attorney General has had an opportunity of being heard in opposition thereto, and of giving notice of appeal.

6. Every appeal under this Ordinance may be heard in Vacation and either in Court or in Chambers, and shall be set down for hearing on such early day and at such hour as the Chief Justice appoints, notice whereof shall be given in writing by the Registrar to the Superintendent of the Gaol, who shall on the day and hour appointed bring the fugitive before the Chief Justice; and on the hearing of the appeal the Chief Justice may, if he thinks fit, receive any new evidence and may either affirm or reverse the decision of the Magistrate according as he is of opinion that there is, or is not, sufficient primâ facie evidence of the criminality of the fugitive or that the conditions and regulations of Section 5 have, or have not, been complied with, and may order the fugitive to be committed to gaol or to be discharged, as the case may be, or make any other Order with respect to the said matter as may be requisite to the due adjudica- tion thereof.

VIII. The Magistrate before whom a fugitive is brought under this Ordinance shall, at the conclusion of the case, send a Report thereon to the Governor,

Documents to be read to the fugitive, who must be asked to show cause.

X. No Extradition Order shall be granted by the Gov- ernor in Council in any case where in the opinion of the Governor in Council the requisition for the extradition of the fugitive has been made for political reasons or a political offence is involved in the crime charged; but it shall not be open to the fugitive to claim his discharge from custody on such ground before any Judge or Magistrate, and any at- tempt against the life of the Governor or of any Public Officer or member of the Government of Macao shall not be deemed a political offence.

any

XI. No Extradition Order shall be granted by the Gov- ernor in Council in respect of any fugitive who is under- going any sentence of imprisonment pronounced by any of the Courts of this Colony, or who is charged with crime or offence cognizable by the said Courts, until the expiration of such sentence or of any sentence which may be pro- nounced upon his Trial for such crime or offence, or until his acquittal or the abandonment of such charge.

XII. The Governor in Council may at any time issue an Order directed to the Superintendent of the Gaol for the release of any fugitive in custody under this Ordinance in respect of whom the Governor in Council does not think fit to issue an Extradition Warrant, and thereupon such fugi- tive shall be forthwith discharged from such custody.

XIII. Where any fugitive who has been committed under this Ordinance is not delivered up pursuant thereto, and conveyed out of this Colony within one month after the date of such committal, the Chief Justice may at any time, upon application made to him by or on behalf of the fugitive, and

upon its being proved to his satisfaction that reason- able notice of the intention to make such application has been given to the Crown Solicitor, order the fugitive so committed to be discharged out of custody, unless sufficient cause is shown to him why such discharge ought not to be ordered: Provided that in every case where such fugitive has appealed to the Supreme Court or has applied for a writ of Habeas Corpus the said period of one month shall be computed from the date of the decision of the Supreme Court upon such proceeding, and in every case within Section 11 the said period shall be computed from the date of the expiration of the fugitive's sentence or of his acquittal or of the abandonment of the charge as therein mentioned.

XIV. The Governor in Council may, from time to time, by crime Order to be published in the Gazette, declare that or offence specified in such Order, and not included in the First Schedule hereto, shall form part thereof, and from and after the date of the publication of such Order, the several crimes and offences specified therein shall come within the operation of this Ordinance as if the same had been originally included in the said Schedule.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH MARCH, 1881.

XV.

XVI. All expenses incident to the apprehension, deten- tion, maintenance, and delivery of a fugitive under this Ordinance, shall be borne by this Colony.

ANNONCE HYDROGRAPHIQUE.

AVIS AUX NAVIGATEURS.

LE MYRE DE VILERS.

Le 20 janvier dernier, le vapeur Octavia, calant 18 pieds anglais, se rendait de Bangkok à Hongkong et faisait route le long des côtes de l'Annam. Il venait de passer entre l'île Tortue et la terre, et se trouvait par 14° 30′ de latitude nord, lorsqu'il toucha sur une roche qui lui a enlevé toute une partie de sa coque. Il n'a dû son salut qu'à ses balastings.

Les parages où est arrivé cet accident étant très-fréquentés par nos bâtiments de guerre et les vapeurs de commerce, l'Administration locale a cru devoir porter le fait à la connaissance des navigateurs, en attendant une connaissance parfaite de la position de la roche.

66

66

(18.) Malicious injury to property, if the offence be indictable.

66

"The extradition is also to take place for participation in any of the aforesaid crimes, as an accessory before or after the fact.

ARTICLE III.

"No Swiss shall be delivered up by Switzerland to the Government of the United Kingdom; and no subject of the United Kingdom shall be delivered up by the Government thereof to Switzerland. -

ARTICLE IV.

"The extradition shall not take place if the person claimed on the part of the Government of the United Kingdom, or the person claimed on the part of the Swiss Government, has already been tried and discharged or punished, or is still under trial, in one of the Swiss Cantons or in the United Kingdom respectively, for the crime for which his extradition is demanded.

"If the person claimed on the part of the Government of the United Kingdom, or if the person claimed on the part of the Swiss Government, should be under examination, or have been condemned for any other crime, in one of the Swiss Cantons or in the United Kingdom respectively, his extradition may be deferred until he shall have been set at liberty in due course of law.

"In case such individual should be proceeded against or detained in the country in which he has taken refuge, on account of obligations contracted towards private individuals, his extradition shall, nevertheless, take place; the injured party retaining his right to prosecute his claims before the com- petent authority.

180

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 12TH MARCH, 1891.

ARTICLE V.

"The extradition shall not take place if, subsequently to the commission of the crime, or the institution of the penal prosecution, or the conviction thereon, exemption from prosecution or punish- ment has been acquired by lapse of time, according to the laws of the State applied to.

ARTICLE VI.

"If the individual claimed by one of the two Contracting Parties in pursuance of the present Treaty should be also claimed by one or several other Powers, on account of other crimes committed upon their respective territories, his surrender shall be granted to that State whose demand is earliest in date; unless any other arrangement should be made between the Governments which have claimed him, either on account of the gravity of the crimes committed, or for any other reason.

ARTICLE VII.

"A fugitive criminal shall not be surrendered if the offence in respect of which his surrender is demanded is one of a political character, or is connected with a crime of that nature, or if he prove that the requisition for his surrender has, in fact, been made with a view to try and punish him for an offence of a political character.

ARTICLE VIII.

"A person surrendered can in no case be kept in prison, or be brought to trial in the State to which the surrender has been made, for any other crime, or on account of any other matters than those for which the extradition shall have taken place.

"This stipulation does not apply to crimes committed after the extradition.

ARTICLE IX.

"The requisition for extradition must always be made by the way of diplomacy, and to wit, in Switzerland by the British Minister to the President of the Confederation, and in the United Kingdom to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs by the Consul-General of Switzerland, who, for the purposes of this Treaty, is hereby recognised by Her Majesty as a Diplomatic Representative of Switzerland.

"The requisition for the extradition of an accused person must be accompanied by a warrant of arrest issued by the competent authority of the State requiring the extradition, and by such evidence as, according to the laws of the place where the accused is found, would justify his arrest if the crime had been committed there.

"If the requisition relates to a person already convicted, it must be accompanied by the sentence of condemnation passed against the convicted person by the competent Court of the State that makes the requisition for extradition.

"A requisition for extradition cannot be founded on sentences passed in contumaciam.

ARTICLE X.

"A fugitive criminal may, however, be apprehended under a warrant issued by any police magis- trate, justice of the peace, or other competent authority, in either country, on such information or complaint, together with such evidence or after such judicial proceedings as would in the opinion of the officer issuing the warrant justify its issue, if the crime had been committed in that part of the dominions of the two Contracting Parties in which he exercises jurisdiction. Provided, however, that in the United Kingdom the accused shall in such case be sent as speedily as possible before a police magistrate in London. Such requisition may be made by means of the post or by telegraph.

"The accused shall, however, be discharged if, within such reasonable time as, with reference to the circumstances of the case, the police magistrate may fix, the requisition shall not have been made according to the stipulations contained in Article IX.

ARTICLE XI.

"The extradition shall not take place before the expiration of fifteen days from the apprehension, and then only if the evidence be found sufficient, according to the laws of the State applied to, either to justify the committal of the prisoner for trial in case the crime had been committed in the territory of the said State, or to prove that the prisoner is the identical person convicted by the Courts of the State which makes the requisition.

ARTICLE XII.

"In the examinations which they have to make in accordance with the foregoing stipulations, the authorities of the State applied to shall admit as entirely valid evidence the sworn depositions or state-

181

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 12TH MARCH, 1881. ment of witnesses taken in the other State, or copies thereof, and likewise the warrants and sentences issued therein, provided such documents are signed or certified by a Judge, Magistrate, or Officer of such State, and are authenticated by the oath of some witness, or by being sealed with the official seal of a British Secretary of State, or of the Chancellor of the Swiss Confederation.

ARTICLE XIII.

"If sufficient evidence for the extradition be not produced within two months from the date of the apprehension of the fugitive, he shall be set at liberty.

ARTICLE XIV.

"All articles seized, which were in the possession of the person to be surrendered at the time of his apprehension, shall, if the competent authority of State applied to for the extradition has ordered the delivery thereof, be given up when the extradition takes place, and the said delivery shall extend not merely to the stolen articles, but to everything that may serve as a proof of the crime.

ARTICLE XV.

"The Contracting Parties renounce any claim for the reimbursement of the expenses incurred by them in the arrest and maintenance of the person to be surrendered, and his conveyance to the frontiers of the State from which he is required; they reciprocally agree to bear such expenses themselves.

ARTICLE XVI.

"The stipulations of the present Treaty shall be applicable to the Colonies and foreign Possessions of Her Britannic Majesty.

"The requisition for the arrest and surrender of a fugitive criminal who has taken refuge in any of such Colonies or foreign Possessions shall be made through the Swiss Consul-General in London to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, who shall proceed in conformity with the provisions of the present Treaty and the laws of the land.

"Her Britannic Majesty shall, however, be at liberty to make special arrangements in the British Colonies and foreign Possessions for the surrender of such individuals as shall have committed in Switzerland any of the crimes hereinafore mentioned, who may take refuge within such Colonies and foreign Possessions, on the basis as nearly as may be, of the provisions of the present Treaty.

"The requisition for the surrender of a fugitive criminal from any Colony or foreign Possession of Her Britannic Majesty shall be governed by the rules laid down in the preceding Articles of the present Treaty.

"The

ARTICLE XVII.

present Treaty shall come into force ten days after its publication in conformity with the forms prescribed by the laws of the High Contracting Parties. It may be terminated by either of the High Contracting Parties, but shall remain in force for six months after notice has been given for its

termination.

"The Treaty shall be ratified, and the ratification shall be exchanged at Berne in four weeks, or sooner if possible.

"In witness whereof the respective Plenipotentiaries have signed the same, and have affixed thereto the seal of their arms.

"Done at Berne, the thirty-first day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy-four.

And whereas a Protocol amending Article XVI of the aforesaid Treaty was signed by the Pleni- potentiaries of Her Majesty and of the Swiss Confederation on the twenty-eighth day of November, one thousand eight hundred and seventy-four, which Protocol is in the following terms:—

"The Undersigned Plenipotentiaries of Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and the Federal Council of the Swiss Confederation, having met in Conference, have taken into their consideration the following subject:

182

66

They have directed their attention to the fact that the second paragraph of the XVIth Article of the Treaty, which stipulates that the requisition for the arrest of a fugitive criminal who has taken refuge in any of the Colonies or foreign Possessions of Her Britannic Majesty shall be made through the Swiss Consul-General in London to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, was not in accord- ance with the law of England, and they have consequently resolved to declare that the second para- graph of that Article beginning:

"The requisition for the arrest,' and concluding with, and the laws of the land,' shall be null and void, and in lieu thereof the following words shall be substituted:

"The requisition for the surrender of a fugitive criminal who has taken refuge in any of such Colonies or foreign Possessions shall be made to the Governor or to the Supreme Authority of such Colony or Possession through the Swiss Consul, or, in case there should be no Swiss Consul, through the Consular Agent of another State charged for the occasion with the Swiss interests in the Colony or Possession in question.

"The Governor or Supreme Authority above-mentioned shall decide with regard to such requisi- tions as nearly as possible in accordance with the provisions of the present Treaty. He will, however, be at liberty either to consent to the extradition or report the case to his Government.'

"The other provisions of Article XVI remain in force as they have been agreed upon in the Treaty. "This Protocol shall be regarded and acted upon as forming part of the Treaty in question. "In witness whereof the Undersigned have signed this Protocol, and have hereunto affixed their seals.

An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hong- kong, with the advice of the Legislative Council thereof, entitled "The Macao Extradition Ordinance, 1881.”

W

[14th March, 1881.]

HEREAS persons who have committed certain crimes within the territory of Macao may escape to this Colony and it is expedient to provide for the appre- hension of such fugitives from Justice and for their sur- render to the Government of Macao in order that they may be dealt with according to Law: Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows :-

I. This Ordinance may be cited as dition Ordinance, 1881."

"The Macao Extra-

J. POPE HENNESSY.

Governor.

!

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH MARCH, 1881.

II. In the interpretation of this Ordinance, the expres- sion "Governor of Macao" shall include the person for the time being administering the Government of Macao.

The expression "territory of Macao" shall extend to any place within the jurisdiction of the Government of Macao, and shall include the high seas.

The expression "Superintendent of the Gaol" shall mean the Superintendent of Victoria Gaol or the keeper of any prison or place of custody for criminals within this Colony.

III. In case requisition is at any time made by the Governor of Macao to the Governor of this Colony to deliver up to Justice any person who, being accused or convicted of any of the crimes and offences specified in the First Schedule of this Ordinance, and alleged to have been com- mitted either before or after the passing of this Ordinance within the territory of Macao, has taken refuge within this Colony, the Governor of this Colony may, if he in his discretion thinks fit, by Warrant under his hand and seal signify that such requisition has been made, and require the Police Magistrates to govern themselves accordingly and to aid in apprehending the person so accused or con- victed, and hereinafter referred to as the fugitive.

IV. Upon the issue of such Warrant any Police Magis- trate may issue his Warrant for the apprehension of the fugitive, and if he be already in custody, issue an order to the Superintendent of the Gaol forthwith to bring the fugitive before him to be dealt with in manner hereinafter provided.

V. If the fugitive be apprehended, or if he be already in custody, he shall be brought forthwith before the Mag- istrate, and the following conditions and regulations shall be complied with:

1. There must be the production before the Magistrate of a valid Warrant of Arrest issued by a Judge or other competent Magistrate having authority within the territory of Macao to take cognizance of the crime charged, and clearly setting forth such crime. 2. In the case of a person accused but not convicted, such evidence shall be produced to the Magistrate as would in his opinion justify the apprehension of the fugitive if the crime of which he is accused had been committed within the jurisdiction of this Col- ony, with this qualification,-that copies of deposi- tions signed or taken before any such Judge or other competent Magistrate as aforesaid and authenticated in manner hereinafter provided may be received in evidence of the criminality of the fugitive.

3. In the case of a person convicted, a

copy of the conviction, authenticated in manner hereinafter pro- vided, shall be produced: But if it should appear that the conviction was pronounced in the absence of the accused for contumacy in not having surrendered. to take his trial, the same evidence shall be produced to the Magistrate as in the case of a person accused but not convicted.

4. In every case proof of the identity of the fugitive must be given to the satisfaction of the Magistrate. 5. Warrants of Arrest and copies of depositions, signed or taken before any such Judge or other competent Magistrate, as aforesaid, and copies of convictions, shall be received in evidence, if the Warrant of Arrest purports to be signed by such Judge or Magistrate and if the copies of depositions purport to be certified under the hand of such Judge or Magistrate to be true copies of the original depositions, and if the copy of the conviction purport to be certified under the hand of the Judge of the Court by which the fugitive was convicted to be a true copy of the ori- ginal conviction. The signature of every such Judge or Magistrate and his authority to take cognizance of the crime or offence charged, shall be sufficiently proved if the document purport to be sealed with the official seal of the Governor of Macao, and all Courts of Justice in this Colony shall, for the purpose of this Ordinance, take judicial notice of such seal, and shall admit the documents so authenticated by it to be received in evidence without further proof.

6. The original Warrant of Arrest and the copy of the depositions, or, as the case may be, the copy of the conviction, shall be read to the fugitive, and he shall be asked if he has any valid cause to show why he should not be committed to Gaol to await the Order of the Governor in Council.

VI. If the fugitive fails to show cause to the satisfaction of the Magistrate why he should not be committed, and if the Magistrate is of opinion that there is sufficient primâ facie evidence to establish the criminality of the fugitive, he shall commit him to Gaol, there to await the Order of the Governor in Council: Provided that before any such com- mittal, the Magistrate shall inform the fugitive that a period of fifteen days will be allowed him to appeal to the Supreme Court if he shall think fit, under Section 7, or to apply for a writ of Habeas Corpus.

VII. Ordinance 4 of 1858 as to appeals from the deci- sions of Magistrates shall not apply to proceedings under this Ordinance, but the following rules as to appeals shall be observed, that is to say :-

1. If the fugitive desires to appeal to the Supreme Court against a Magistrate's Order of committal and notifies such desire to the Magistrate at any time before the expiration of fifteen days from the date of such Order; or if the Attorney General desires to appeal to the Supreme Court against a Magistrate's Order de- of discharge of a fugitive and notifies such sire to the Magistrate at any time before the actual discharge of the fugitive, the Magistrate shall, sub- ject to the provision in Rule 3 hereinafter contained, grant such appeal and transmit forthwith to the Registrar of the Supreme Court the depositions and all other documents relating to the case, together think with any statement in writing which he may fit to annex in relation thereto.

2. If the appeal is by the Attorney General against an Order of discharge, such Order shall be suspended until the conclusion of the appeal, and the fugitive shall be detained in custody until further Order of the Magistrate, or of the Supreme Court.

3. If the appeal is by a fugitive against an Order of committal and the Magistrate has reason to believe that the appeal is merely frivolous, he may refuse to grant the same.

4. In case the Magistrate refuses to grant an appeal to a fugitive on the ground that the same is frivolous, the Supreme Court may, if it thinks fit, upon the fugitive's petition in writing, setting forth the grounds of appeal, make an Order directing the Magistrate to grant the appeal.

5. The Magistrate shall cause notice of his intention to discharge a fugitive (otherwise than in pursuance of any decision of the Supreme Court), and also of any appeal by a fugitive against his committal, to be served upon the Crown Solicitor, and no fugitive shall be discharged by a Magistrate (otherwise than aforesaid), unless the Attorney General has had an opportunity of being heard in opposition thereto, and of giving notice of appeal.

6. Every appeal under this Ordinance may be heard in Vacation and either in Court or in Chambers, and shall be set down for hearing on such early day and at such hour as the Chief Justice appoints, notice whereof shall be given in writing by the Registrar to the Superintendent of the Gaol, who shall on the day and hour appointed bring the fugitive before the Chief Justice; and on the hearing of the appeal the Chief Justice may, if he thinks fit, receive any new evidence and may either affirm or reverse the decision of the Magistrate according as he is of opinion that there is, or is not, sufficient primâ facie evidence of the criminality of the fugitive or that the conditions and regulations of Section 5 have, or have not, been complied with, and may order the fugitive to be committed to gaol or to be discharged, as the case may be, or make any other Order with respect to the said matter as may be requisite to the due adjudica- tion thereof.

VIII. The Magistrate before whom a fugitive is brought under this Ordinance shall, at the conclusion of the case, send a Report thereon to the Governor.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH MARCH, 1881.

IX. It shall be lawful for the Governor in Council, if in the discretion of the Governor in Council it seems fit, after the expiration of fifteen days from the date of the committal of a fugitive by a Magistrate or, in case of any proceeding by appeal or writ of Habeas Corpus, then subject to the decision of the Supreme Court thereon, and subject also to the provisions of Sections 10 and 11 hereinafter contained, by Order directed to the Superintendent of the Gaol and hereinafter called an "Extradition Order" to order the fugitive so committed to be delivered to such person as shall by Warrant under the hand and seal of the Governor of Macao be authorized to receive him, and such fugitive shall be delivered up accordingly; and the person authorized as aforesaid may hold such fugitive in custody, and convey him to any place within the territory of Macao, and if such fugitive escapes out of any custody to which he is com- mitted or to which he is delivered as aforesaid, it shall be lawful to retake him in the same manner as any person accused of any felony committed within this Colony may be retaken upon an escape: Provided that in every case where before the expiration of the said period of fifteen days the order of committal has been affirmed on appeal or the fugitive has applied for a writ of Habeas Corpus, and has failed on the return thereof to obtain his discharge, it shall be lawful for the Governor in Council in such discre- tion and subject as aforesaid, to grant an Extradition Order without further delay.

X. No Extradition Order shall be granted by the Gov- ernor in Council in any case where in the opinion of the Governor in Council the requisition for the extradition of the fugitive has been made for political reasons or a political offence is involved in the crime charged; but it shall not be open to the fugitive to claim his discharge from custody on such ground before any Judge or Magistrate, and any at- tempt against the life of the Governor or of any Public Officer or member of the Government of Macao shall not be deemed a political offence.

XI. No Extradition Order shall be granted by the Gov- ernor in Council in respect of any fugitive who is under- going any sentence of imprisonment pronounced by any of the Courts of this Colony, or who is charged with any crime or offence cognizable by the said Courts, until the expiration or previous determination of such sentence or of any sentence which may be pronounced upon his Trial for such crime or offence, or until his acquittal or the abandonment of such charge.

XII. The Governor in Council may at any time issue an Order directed to the Superintendent of the Gaol for the release of any fugitive in custody under this Ordinance in respect of whom the Governor in Council does not think fit to issue an Extradition Warrant, and thereupon such fugi- tive shall be forthwith discharged from such custody.

XIII. Where any fugitive who has been committed under this Ordinance is not delivered up pursuant thereto, and conveyed out of this Colony within one month after the date of such committal, the Chief Justice may at any time, upon application made to him by or on behalf of the fugitive, and upon its being proved to his satisfaction that reason- able notice of the intention to make such application has been given to the Crown Solicitor, order the fugitive so committed to be discharged out of custody, unless sufficient cause is shown to him why such discharge ought not to be ordered: Provided that in every case where such fugitive has appealed to the Supreme Court or has applied for a writ of Habeas Corpus the said period of one month shall be computed from the date of the decision of the Supreme Court upon such proceeding, and in every case within Section 11 the said period shall be computed from the date of the expiration of the fugitive's sentence or of his acquittal or of the abandonment of the charge as therein mentioned.

XIV. The Governor in Council may, from time to time, by Order to be published in the Gazette, declare that any crime or offence specified in such Order, and not included in the First Schedule hereto, shall form part thereof, and from and after the date of the publication of such Order, the several crimes and offences specified therein shall come within the operation of this Ordinance as if the same had been originally included in the said Schedule.
