Captain Endicott's gallant capture of a piratical vesel at Cursingmoon, as cominunicated by our correspondent, is beyond all praire, and we placere. ly hope that the wound he has received will be Merely a temporary inconvenience

The Blamer Plato left the harbour yesterday having Sir John Davis on board. 11 je understood that His Excellency proceeds to Camsinghoon to enquire into the particulars of the capture. We presume that the pirates will be handed over to the Authorities of their own country. As they were Isken by sa American, in the Chinese wateis, aller having rod into a Chinese vessel, it is questions- 1 ble, if brought to 11ongkong, whether they could be tried by English law,

We hear from Canfou that business is quite at a stand, nor will it be removed until after the Chinese boliday In the mean time foreigners are amusing themselves with shooting on the river side, Saipa being numerous this season.

The Chinese offer no opposition to parties visiting the suburbs, though the populace particular the lower classes-are determined that faoigners shall not be permitted to saler the city. The violent patriotisun of the mob will mom likely subside after the first entry, and we resume that foreigners will but seklom sval! themselves of the privilege. As a proper pre caution, however, it is don ?able that a war Steamer be moored off the acturica, and that in bo distinctly intimated to the Authorities, that they will be held responsible in the event of any outrage being sonumitted on the person or property of foreign residents in consequence of their admision to the city.

It is said that the American Consul now de. clares that w? Jave no right to insist on the privilege. We may at least doubt whether he holds such opinions upon the subject, as it has besa unilerstood hitherto that be was strenuous in lis endeavours to secure such a reasonable office.iur.

lo Table No. 111.We see the number and proportion of deaths among the prisoners, which shows the mortality in the prison to be very small, being about J? per cent. The chief causes of tho | mortality are Ulcers. These occur among the lowest class of the Chinese, and nru owing to their unexcitable or non inflamatory temperament, their spare dist, consisting of rice and salt fish, their filthy habita, and a wish on the part of the pallents to prevent the Ulcers healing so as to avoid work. Tboss Ulcers are often induced by the clains on their limbs, which may be mid to act as the imaxe. dinte exciting causo. Epidemies have been unknown in the Jail.

In Table No. IV.We God the deaths among the Government O?eers to be small, only amounting tot in 68 of the whole, that is 14 per cent, or a li?la more then I per cent among all the cases that have been under treatment in 1845. But in the Police Department, including Overseers of Rosda, we find a much greater mortality, being 1 in 14 of the whole number of persons, that is 7 per cent, or among these who have been under treatment, in 19.5, that is, about B? per cent. This mortality is owing to the commant exposure to the vicissitude of the climate, ike intemperate habits of the individuale, the deleterious nature of the spirits they imbibe, and further, to the Road Overseers living in temporary dwellings erected on the damp soil.

Table No. V.-Shows the European and Portuguese population in Hongkong for 1843, und the number and porporsion of deaths to the population, which we dlacover to be 1 in 18-3 or nearly 5 per cent.

The past year appears to have been much more heshy among the civil community then the years previous, which is to be recounted for by the improved" state of the Culony, improvements in draining, in roads, and in dwellings more adapted to the country, also from the deleterious nature of the climate being better known, and therefore mote care taken to avoid the causes which promonto diarane; and it is hoped that disease will now cuntisue to diminish an the improvement of the place

anmal saving the British Government of ?15,000.

Canton continues to be in a very unsettled state, and a residence there is far from agroen- ble. We have conversed with a Gentleman who left on the 4th. He has been many years In China, but at no time does he remember so much hostility being exhibited towards foreig. Dere by the lower orders of the Chinese. Ta the vicinity of the factoried crowds of disorder ly people, who have no ostensible object for doing so, are congregated daily, and their gest ures and manner towards any foreigner who may appear in the back streets, are rude and of fensive, There is an evident desire to provoke * quarrel, which would be the commencement

of serious riola.

On Sunday one of the Gatekeepers was sa saulted by the mob and much injured; a drun- ken soxman was also beaten for some alleged Indignity he had committed on a temple, or Joss house. The same day a party of young Gentlemen crossed the river to view a Jo house inmediately opposite the factories. This spot has alway been open to foreigners, nor is it known that they were ever insulted there be- Sare. On Sunday, however, the party mun- tioned were pelted with stones and driven back to their boats. By the latest accounts - the 4th-there had been no further outrages committed, but there were still nume- rous suspicious charactors lounging about the streets outside the factory walls. The respec- Table Chineso say that the Magistrates have little osatrol over these people-that they are notorious characters-nor is it knows where they come from.

It is the general opinion in Canton that had the Pluto not arrived off the factories on the afternoon of the 17th of January, there would have been a very serious riot that night. The presence of a steam vessel would still bo a check upon the mob, and add greatly to the security of the foreign Merchants. We certainly think that the Naval Commander in China is acting very imprudently in keeping the Pluto at Hong kong, where her services are not required, and leaving his countrymen in Canton without any protection nearer than the ships at Whampoa Before amistance could be rendered by II. M.8. Agincourt from her present anchorage the factories might be destroyed. Such a calas- trophe is not impossible, and we apprehand that should it ooour the Rear Admiral would be severely censored for not having the Pluto moored off the factories,

By the Orig Fibberty we are in receipt of papers and letters from Sydney to the 27th of December. The Fanny Connel had sailed for Manila and China, and the Anita arrived from this port.

The markets are represented as being in a satisfactory state; and the agricultural and graning interests continue to improve.

Captain Beauvais of the Kestral, and Mr. Dobson, chief Mate, are in custody at Melbourne charged with having killed some lancars on the voyage from Manila.

Bydney, December 23rd, 1845.

I is generally supposed that a change is to be made in the government of the Austraiation Colo nice-the whole being ruled by a Governor-Gene- cal. You will see by some of the latest Australian Journals, who the parties are it is rumoured, that may fill he head sout

Our present Governor

(Sir George Gippe) will leave in all probability in January or February next, ie. if his resignation be accepted; for although His Excellency has re- ceived an indirect intimation of the acceptance by the Home Government of his Excellency's desire to resign the government of New South Wales. I baliere. ? mm right in asserting that nothing official has been received by Sir George. That an im portant change will take place ere long in the go- noral government of these colonion, it is the belief of all those acquainted with political aire. It is asserted (and I believe it) that Bir Cleorge was of fered the Clovernor General hip of the Colonies; but declined the honor on the score of ill-health. Hi has also been affirmed that Sir Charles Fitzroy, brother to the late governor of New Zealand had been offered the berth, and had accepted the same. Our Colonial Becretary (E. Deus Thompson) I have been told gavo directions to the son of Sir Thoman Mitchell-four Surveyor general who is at present on an expedition to endeavour to penetrate through the vast Interior of this gigantin island, to the northe ward)-to write to his father by the first opportunity Manchester appears to be rather a round mating the fact that Fitzy was coming out.
