In future, their names. with their rating on board, will appear at the end of the passenger lists, and they will be included in the pro s number that the ship can carry, but numerically they will be entered, as heretofore, under the head of “Crew on Ship's Articles." About 4 Cooks and Stewards to every 100 passengers has been the rule.

4.-Either at this time or after the passengers are collected on board they must be inspected individually by a resident Surgeon, who must also inspect the Crew and give his Certificate that none appear, by reason of any bodily or mental disease, unfit to proceed, or likely to endanger the health or safety of other persons about to proceed, in such Vessel.

5.---The Jaster will give notice when all the passengers are on board and when he wishes to clear for Sea.

Note. The Broker must personally assure himself that every passenger is on board and report to that effect, ofter which the Emigration Officer will proceed on board, muster and count the passengers, and make a final inspec- tion of the Ship.

After this is done, and not before, the Ship is at liberty to shift her berth, if it is desired; the Master mentioning the fiet to the Harbor Master; who will then deliver to him his Emigration Papers and Port Clearance.

In the fitting up and equipment of Chinese Passenger Ships the following general Rules will obtain :-- 1.--Ships with full compliment of passengers, shall carry boats according to the following seale, of size and description approved by the Emigration Oficer:--

Less than 200 Tons Registered,

Note. In every case one boat must be a properly fitted Life boat, and oue a Long boat. 2.--Ships must carry at least 2 Life booys, shung, prepared for sudden emergencies.

3.--In the absence of a Forceputup and Hose, reaching fore and aft, a Ship must be provided with not less than 3 dozen buckets, in case of fire.

4.Every Hatchway leading into passengers' quarters must be covered by a well secured Honce about sixfeet high, having as much ventilation as is compatible with strength, and being water tight. The Hatches are not to be used during the

voyage

less stress of weather demands it.

Note. When women are carried, they must have a separate hatchway entrance, apart from the Males; and the Male and Female quarters must be devided by a strong bulkhead with no door or aperture in it. The Female quarters must be aft, as also the Water closets for their use.

5.--The Rerths, Cooking cabooses, Water closets, &c., must be all properly secured; and the Minster must provide himself with two or three spare rice hoilers, as they are very brittle, and liable to accident.

6.-In the very important particular of ventilation, the Government Notification No. 51 of the 22nd April, 1856, is republished here, being not generally known.

No. 51.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH JANUARY, 1861.

NOTICE.

EMIGRATION OFFICE, HONGKONG, 26th December, 1860.

Whereas much ignorance prevails in this Port as to the Law and Regulations affecting Chinese Passenger Ships leading to perpetual reference, by Ship Masters and Merchants, to the Emigration Officer, for information on matters of ordinary detail and standing Rule: and whereas the Laws and Regulations alluded to are contained in various Imperial Acts, Local Ordinances and Proclamations and decisions of the Emigration Commissioners on matters arising out of the working of the system since it came into force:-(some of which documents are not easily procurable by the parties interested) it is therefore considered expedient by the Emigration Officer to publish in a condensed form the leading Rules in force in this Port relating to all Pri- vate Chinese Passenger Ships and Passengers, and as far as the provisions of the Imperial Act are concerned, to Ships chartered by a British Government Emigration Agent.

Any vessel clearing with more than 20 Asiatic Passengers, on any Voyage of more than 7 days duration, is a Chinese Passenger Ship" under the Act.

1.-The Ship laid on for passengers, the Master will notify the Emigration Officer by Letter of the fact, specifying the estimated number of passengers she can carry by Surveyor's Certificate, her destination, and the name of the Licensed Passage Broker employed.

Note. After which, the Emigration Officer will take an early opportunity to inspect Ship.

2.----When the full quantity of passengers' provisions is on board the Master shall notify the Emigration Officer of the fact, who will as soon as possible thereafter, go off and inspect them.

Note. The provisions must be all placed in the "Tween decks or on the Upper deck, and not be stowed away in the

Hold, until after inspection. 3.When the Ship is ready to receive the passengers on board the Passage Broker will bring a written notice to that effect from the Master, when a time will be fixed for the attendance of the passengers at this Office to have their contract pas- sage tickets explained and signed, in the presence of the Broker or his deputy.

Note. This notice must be given at least 24 hours before the passengers appear at this Office, and on the same day the Master, with two approved sureties, will attend and execute the Bond under Section 4 of the Chinese Pas- senger Act 1855, and deposit the following documents :--

1.-Government Surveyor's Certificate of measurement and seaworthyness.

2.-Master's Certificate relative to Chinese Doctor (provided he fails in securing an European Surgeon for a reasonable remuneration.)

3.-Certificate under the Chop seals of two Chinese apothecary's Shops, vouching for competency of Doctor. 4.-List of provisions and medicines, according to the scale laid down in the Act, signed by the Master. 5.-Certificate of a resident Physician that he has examined the medicines, that they are good, and in accordance with the requirements of the Act.

C.-Passenger List in duplicate, with a Summary attached, specifying the numbers respectively of, Pas- sengers under the Act, Cabin passengers, Crew, including Master and all persons on Ship's Articles; shewing total number of souls on board. Signed by Master.

Note. Chinese Cooks, Stewards, Interpreter, Doctor, &c., are invariably passengers, berthed and fed with the others, although borne by Law on the Ship's Articles, for purposes of discipline. In future, their names, with their rating on board, will appear at the end of the passenger lists, and they will be included in the gross number that the ship can carry, but numerically they will be entered, as heretofore, under the head of "Crew on Ship's Articles." About 4 Cooks and Stewards to every 100 passengers has been the rule.

4.--Either at this time or after the passengers are collected on board they must be inspected individually by a resident Surgeon, who must also inspect the Crew and give his Certificate that none appear, by reason of any bodily or mental disease, unfit to proceed, or likely to endanger the health or safety of other persons about to proceed, in such Vessel.

5.-The Master will give notice when all the assengers are on board and when he wishes to clear for Sea.

Note. The Broker must personally assure himself that every passenger is on board and report to that effect, aftor which the Emigration Officer wii' proceed on board, muster and count the passengers, and make a final inspec- tion of the Ship.

After this is done, and not before, the Ship is at liberty to shift her berth, if it is desired; the Master mentioning the fact to the Harbor Master; who will then deliver to him his Emigration Papers and Port Clearance.

In the fitting up and equipment of Chinese l'assenger Ships the following general Rules will obtain :- 1.--Ships with full compliment of passengers, shall carry boats according to the following scale, of size and description approved by the Emigration Officer:-

""

Note. In every case one boat must be a properly fitted Life boat, and one a Long boat. 2.-Ships must carry at least 2 Life buoys, slung, prepared for sudden emergencies.

3. In the absence of a Forcepump and Hose, reaching fore and aft, a Ship must be provided with not less than 3 dozen buckets, in case of fire.

4. Every Hatchway leading into passengers' quarters inust be covered by a well secured House about sixfeet high, having as much ventilation as is compatible with strength, and being water tight. The Hatches are not to be used during the voyage unless stress of weather demands it.

Note. When women are carried, they must have a separate hatchway entrance, apart from the Males; and the Male and Female quarters must be devided by a strong bulkhead with no door or aperture in it. The Female quarters must be aft, as also the Water closets for their use.

5.-The Berths, Cooking cabooses, Water closets, &c., must be all properly secured; and the Master must provide himself with two or three spare rice boilers, as they are very brittle, and liable to accident.

6.-In the very important particular of ventilation, the Government Notification No. 51 of the 22nd April, 1856, is republished here, being not generally known.

No. 51.

RULE----In every ship propelled by steam, or other power, requiring engine-room, an allowance of space or tonnage shall be made for the space occupied by the propelling power, and the amount so allowed shall be deducted from the gross tonnage of the ship; and such deduction shall be estimated as follows, that is to say:

1. Measure the can length of the engine-room between the foremost and aftermost bulkheads, or limits of its length,

excluding such parts, if any, as are not actually occupied by, or required for, the proper working of the machinery;- then measure the depth of the ship at the middle point of this leugth, from the ceiling at the limber strake to the upper deck in ships of three decks and under, and to the third deck, or deck above the tonnage deck, in all other ships also the inside breadth of the ship clear of sponsing, if any, at the middle of the depth;--multiply together these dimensions of length, depth, and breadth for the cubical contents;-divide this product by 100, and the quotient shall be demced to be the tonnage of the engine-room, or allowance to be deducted from the gross tonnage on account of the propelling power.

2. In the case of ships having more than three decks, the tonnage of the space or spaces betwixt decks, if any, above the third deck, which are frained in for the machinery, or for the admission of light and air, found by multiplying together the length, breadth, and depth thereof, and dividing the product by 100, shall be added to the tonnage of such space. 3. In the case of Screw Steamers, the tonnage of the shaft trunk shall be deemed to form part of, and added to, such space, and shall be ascertained by multiplying together the length, breadth, and depth of the trunk, and dividing the product by 100.

4. In any ship in which the machinery may be fitted in separate compartments, the tonnage of each such compartment shall be measured, severally, in like manner, according to the above rules, and the sum of their results shall be deemed to be the tonnage of the said space.

ORDERED--

That the proper offices in London, and the Collectors and Comptrollers at the Out-ports do govern themselves accordingly in all future operations for estimating the allowance to Steamers for their propelling power; and with regard to the engine-rooms or allowance to Steamers already measured, that they he remeasured agreeably to the above modification of the Rule, on the application of their owners or agents, and on delivery of the original Certificates for endorsement.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1861.

Majesty undertook to recommend to Parliament the admission into the United Kingdom of bran- dies and spirits imported from France, at a duty upon home- exactly equal to the excise duty levied made spirits, with the addition of a surtax of two pence a gallon, which would make the actual duty payable on French brandies and spirits eight shil- lings and two pence a gallon.

Since the ratification of the said Treaty, the Government of Her Britannic Majesty have as- certained that the surtax of two pence a gallon is not sufficient to countervail the charges with which, in consequence of the operation of the laws of Customs and Excise, home-made British spirits have now to contend; and that a surtax limited to the rate of two pence a-gallon would still leave home-made British spirits subject to a differential duty in favour of foreign brandies and spirits.

Consequently the Government of Her Britannic Majesty having represented these circumstances to the Government of His Majesty the Emperor of the French, and His Imperial Majesty having consented that the amount of the said surtax shall be increased, the two High Contracting Parties to the said Treaty of Commerce do, by the present Additional Article, agree that the amount of such surtax shall be five pence a gallon; and Her Bri- tannic Majesty engages to recommend to Parlia- ment the admission into the United Kingdom of brandies and spirits imported from France at a duty exactly equal to the excise duty levied upon home-made spirits, with the addition of a surtax of five pence a gallon.

The present Additional Article shall have the same force and validity as if it had Leen inserted in the Treaty of Commerce of the 23rd of January last.

It shall be ratified, and the ratifications thereof shall be exchanged at Paris within five days from the date of its signature.

In witness whereof, the respective Plenipoten- tiaries have signed the saine, and have affixed thereto the seals of their arms.

Depuis la ratification du dit Trait?, le Gouver- nement de Sa Majest? Britannique s'est assur? que la surtaxe de deux pence par gallon n'est pas suffisante pour contrebalancer les charges que lois de douane et d'accise font actuellement peser sur les esprits de fabrication Anglaise, et qu'une surtaxe limit?e au taux de deux pence par gallon laisserait encore subsister sur les esprits de fabri- cation Anglaise un droit diff?rentiel en faveur des caux-de-vie et esprits ?trangers.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1861.

Majesty undertook to recommend to Parliament the admission into the United Kingdom of bran- dies and spirits imported from France, at a duty upon home- exactly equal to the excise duty levied made spirits, with the addition of a surtax of two pence a gallon, which would make the actual duty payable on French brandies and spirits eight shil- lings and two pence a gallon.

Since the ratification of the said Treaty, the Government of Her Britannic Majesty have as- certained that the surtax of two pence a gallon is not sufficient to countervail the charges with which, in consequence of the operation of the laws of Customs and Excise, home-made British spirits have now to contend; and that a surtax limited to the rate of two pence a-gallon would still leave home-made British spirits subject to a differential duty in favour of foreign brandies and spirits.

Consequently the Government of Her Britannic Majesty having represented these circumstances to the Government of His Majesty the Emperor of the French, and His Imperial Majesty having consented that the amount of the said surtax shall be increased, the two High Contracting Parties to the said Treaty of Commerce do, by the present Additional Article, agree that the amount of such surtax shall be five pence a gallon; and Her Bri- tannic Majesty engages to recommend to Parlia- ment the admission into the United Kingdom of brandies and spirits imported from France at a duty exactly equal to the excise duty levied upon home-made spirits, with the addition of a surtax of five pence a gallon.

The present Additional Article shall have the same force and validity as if it had Leen inserted in the Treaty of Commerce of the 23rd of January last.

It shall be ratified, and the ratifications thereof shall be exchanged at Paris within five days from the date of its signature.

In witness whereof, the respective Plenipoten- tiaries have signed the saine, and have affixed thereto the seals of their arms.

Done at Paris, this twenty-fifth day of Februa- ry, in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and sixty.

Depuis la ratification du dit Trait?, le Gouver- nement de Sa Majest?

the specific duties to be levied on British moreham- dise imported into France, within the period sti- pulated by the said Article, the High Contracting Parties have considered it advisable, in the interest of the respective commerce of the two countries, te make a fresh arrangement with a view to insure the gradual execution of the aforesaid Treaty within the periods fixed by the same.

In consequence whereof, the Undersigned, in- vested with full-powers on the part of Her Majes ty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Bri- tain and Ireland, on one side, and of His Majesty the Emperor of the French, on the other, have agreed upon the following Articles :--

1. Instead of a single Convention establishing the specific duties to be paid by British merchandise imported into France, three separate Conventions shall be successively concluded; the first of which shall comprise bar and pig iron, steel and worked metals, inachines, tools and mechanical instruments, of all sorts; the second, yarns and manufactures in flax and hemp; the third, all other articles of Bri- tish production and manufacture enumerated in Article I of the Treaty of the 23rd of January.

2. These Conventions shall be negotiated, con- cluded, and ratified in such a manner as to come into force with respect to the Articles to which they apply, at each of the periods fixed by Article XV of the Treaty of which they will form the comple- ment. Nevertheless, the last of these Conventions shall be concluded and ratified before the first of November next

The present Additional Article shall have the same force and validity as if it had been inserted in the Treaty of Commerce of the 23rd of January last. It shall be ratified, and the ratifications there- of shall be exchanged at Paris within four days at latest from the date of its signature.

In witness whereof, the respective Pleniponten- tiaries have signed the same, and have affixed thereto the seal of their arms.

En cons?quence les Soussign?s, munis ? cet effet des pouvoirs de Sa Majest? la Reine du Royaume Uni de la Grande Bretagne et d'Irlande, d'une part, et de Sa Majest? l'Empereur des Fran?ais, d'autre part, sont convenus de ce qui suit :---

For the information of Marine Surveyors and others whom it may concern the following Minute of the Board of Trade is published.

In virtue of the powers given by the 29th Section of the "Merchant Shipping Act, 1854," the Board has approved the alteration herein made in the mode of estimating the allowance for the propelling power of Steamers.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Victoria, Hongkong, 5th March, 1861.

98 1860.

(Copy of Board's Minute, dated the 23rd of October, 1860.)

IN pursuance of the powers granted by the 29th section of "The Merchant Shipping Act, 1851," the Board, with the Trade, direct, with a view to the more accurate and uniform application of the principle of granting approval of the Board a certain allowance to Steamers for their propelling power, that, in lieu of the rules set forth in the sec. 23 of the Merchant Shipping Act, and in paragraphs 4, 5, 6, 18, and 20 of Instructions to Measuring Surveyors of 1855, the following Rule be adopted in future, viz:

RULE.-?n every ship propelled by steam, or other power, requiring engine-room, an allowance of space or tonnage shall be made for the space occupied by the propelling power, and the amount so allowed shall be deducted from the gross tonnage of the ship; and such deduction shall be estimated as follows, that is to say :---

1. Measure the mean length of the engine room between the foremost and aftermost bulkheads, or limits of it length, excluding such parts, if any, as are not actually occupied by, or required for, the proper working of the machinery;- then measure the depth of the ship at the middle point of this length, from the ceiling at the limber strake to the upper deck in ships of three decks and under, and to the third deck, or deck above the tonnage deck, in all other ships; also the inside breadth of the ship clear of sponsing, if any, at the middle of the depth;-multiply together these dimensions of length, depth, and breadth for the cubical contents; divide this product by 100, and the quotient shall be deemed to be the tonnage of the engine-room, or allowance to be deducted from the gross tonnage on account of the propelling power.

2. In the case of ships having more than three decks, the tonnage of the space or spaces betwixt decks, if any, above the third deck, which are framed in for the machinery, or for the admission of light and air, found by multiplying together the length, breadth, and depth thereof, and dividing the product by 100, shall be added to the tonnage of such space. 3. In the case of Screw Steamers, the tonnage of the shaft tank shall be deemed to form part of, and added to such space, and shall be ascertained by multiplying together the length, breadth, and depth of the trunk, and dividing the product by 100.

4. In any ship in which the machinery may be fitted in separate compartments, the tonnage of each such compartment shall be measured, severally, in like manner. according to the above rules, and the sum of their results shall be deemed to be the tonnage of the said space.

ORDERED-

That the proper officers in London, and the Collectors and Comptrollers at the Out-ports do govern themselves accordingly in all future operations for estimating the allowance to Steamers for their propelling power; and with regard to the engine-rooms or allowance to Steamers already measured, that they be remeasured agreeably to the above modification of the Rule, on the application of their owners or agents, and on delivery of the original Certificates for endorsement.

Lesquels, apr?s s'?tre communiqu? leurs pleins pouvoirs respectifs, trouv?s en bonne et due forme, sont convenus des Articles suivants:

ARTICLE I.

Les objets d'origine ou de manufacture Britan- nique ?num?r?s dans le Tarif joint ? la pr?sente Convention, et import?s directement du Royaume Uni, sous pavillon Fran?ais ou Britannique, seront admis en France aux droits fix?s par le dit Tarif.

.

ARTICLE II.

Pour ?tablir que les produits sont d'origine ou de manufacture Britannique, l'emportateur devra pr?senter ? la Donane Fran?aise, soit une d?clara- tion officielle faite devant un magistrat Britannique si?geant au lieu d'exp?dition, soit un certificat d?livr? par le chef du service des Douanes du port d'embarquement, soit un certificat d?livr? par les Consuls ou Agents Consulaires de France dans les lieux d'exp?dition ou dans les ports d'embarquement.

1860, may, if he prefers to do so, demand a valua- tion of his goods by Experts.

The same demand may be made by the French Customs when they may not think it to have im- mediate recourse to pre-emption.

ARTICLE VII.

If the result of such valuation by Experts should prove that the goods have not a value of five per cent. above that which has been declared by the importer, the duty shall be levied upon the

amount of the declaration.

If the proved value is five per cent, above the value declared, the French Customs shall be en- titled, at their choice, either to exercise the right of pre-emption, or to levy the duty on the value determined by the Experts.

This duty shall be increased by fifty per cent., as a fine, if the valuation of the Experts is ten per cent. above the declared value.

In the cases contemplated by Article VI the two arbitrating Experts shall be named, one by the declarant, the other by the local Chief of the French Customs Service.

The decision of the Arbitrators shall be given within the fifteen days which follow their nomi-

nation.

ARTICLE XI

The present Convention shall have the same duration as the Treaty concluded between the

pr?f?re, demander l'estimation de sa marchandise par des Experts.

La m?me facult? appartiendra ? la Douane Fran?aise lorsqu'elle ne jugera pas convenable de recourir imm?diatement ? la pr?emption,

ARTICLE VII.

Si l'expertise constate que la inerchandise n'a pas une valeur de cinq pour cent sup?rieure ? celle d?clar?e par l'importateur, le droit sera per?u sur le montant de la d?claration.

Si la valeur constat?e est de cinq pour cent sup?rieure ? celle d?clar?e, la Douane Fran?aise pourra ? son choix exercer la pr?emption, ou percevoir le droit sur la valeur d?termin?e

par les Expertes.

Ce droit sera augment? de cinquante pour cent ? titre d'amende, si l'?valuation des Experts est de dix pour cent sup?rieure ? la valeur d?clar?e.

Si la valeur d?termin?e par la d?cision arbitrale exc?de la valeur d?clar?e de cinq pour cent, les frais de l'expertise seront support?s par le d?cla- rant. Dans le cas contraire ils seront support?s par la Douane Fran?aise.

ARTICLE VIII.

Dans les cas pr?vus par l'Article VI, les deux arbitres Experts seront nomm?s l'un par le d?cla rant, l'autre par le Chef local du Service des Douanes Fran?aises. En cas de partage, ou m?me au moment de la constitution de l'arbitrage, si le d?clarant le requiert, les Experts choisiront un tiers arbitre. S'il y a d?saccord, celui-ci sera nomm? par le Pr?sident du Tribunal de Commerce du port d'introduction; ? d?fant par le Pr?sident du Tribunal de Commerce du lieu le plus voisin.

La d?cision arbitrale devra ?tre rendue dans les quinze jours qui suivront la constitution de l'arbitrage.

ARTICLE IX.

It is understood that refined sugar is not com- prised in this list, because the duty of 41 francs per 100 kilogrammes, fixed on the importation of that article, includes the duty on consumption with which it is now charged in France.

It is equally agreed between the High Con- tracting Powers that, in the event of the mo- dification or the suppression of the duties of ex- cise now imposed upon French manufacturers, goods of British origin and manufacture shall, with re- gard to such duties of excise, be subjected to the same conditions as similar French goods. If, however, in consequence of the suppression of any of such duties, the Government should establish a supervision or control, or an administrative sys- tem over certain articles of French manufacture, the direct or indirect charges which may be borne by the French manufacturer shall be countervailed by an equivalent surtax imposed upon similar British articles. It is further understood, that if drawbacks are granted to other articles of French manufacture, the duties of Customs which are imposed upon similar articles cf British origin or manufacture shall be augmented by a surtax equal to the amount of the drawbacks.

ARTICLE IV.

With regard to pure and mixed tissues taxed ad valorem, the valuation of which may appear to the French Government to present difficulties, they reserve to themselves the power to designate the Custom-house of Paris exclusively for the ad- mission of such goods.

ARTICLE V.

Each of the High Contracting Powers engages to extend to the other any favour, any privilege or diminution of Tariff, which either of them may grant to a third Power in regard to the importa tion of goods mentioned, or not mentioned, in the Treaty of the 23rd of January, 1860.

ARTICLE VI.

The Tariff annexed to the present Convention shall come into force within a time which shall not be later than the 1st of June, 1861, for yarns and tissues of flax, hemp, and jute, and the 1st of October following for all other articles.

ARTICLE VII.

The present Convention shall have the same duration as the Treaty concluded between the High Contracting Parties on the 23rd of January last, of which it is a complement.

ARTICLE VIII.

The present Convention shall be ratified, and the ratifications shall be exchanged at Paris with- in fifteen days, or sooner if possible.

In witness whereof the respective Plenipoten- tiaries have signed it, and have affixed thereto the seal of their arms.

Done in duplicate, at Paris, the sixteenth day of November, one thousand eight hundred and sixty.

Il est entendu que le sucre raffin? n'est pas com- pris dans cette noinenclature, parceque le droit de 41 francs par 100 kilogrammes fix? ? l'importation de ce produit, comprend l'imp?t de consommation dont il est actuellement gr?v? en France.

Il est ?galement convenu entre les Hautes Puis- sances Contractantes qu'en cas de modification ou de

supp ression des droits d'accise actuellement im- pos?s aux fabricants Fran?ais, les produits d'origine ou de manufacture Britannique seront, pour ces droits d'accise, soumis aux m?mes conditions que les produits similaires Fran?ais. Toutefois, si par suite de la suppression de l'un de ces droits, le Gouvernement ?tablit une surveillance, un contr?le, ou un excrcice administratif sur certains produits fabriqu?s Fran?ais, les charges directes ou indi- rectes dont seront gr?v?s les fabricants Fran?ais seront compens?es par une surtaxe ?quivalente ?tablie sur les produits similaires Britanniques. I demeure en outre entendu, que si des drawbacks sont accord?s ? d'autres produits de fabrication Fran?aise, les droits de Douane qui gr?vent les produits similaires d'origine ou de fabrication Britannique, seront augment?s d'une surtaxe ?gale au montant de ces drawbacks.

ARTICLE IV.

A l'?gard des tissus purs et m?lang?s tax?s ? la valeur, dont l'estimation dans les ports lui para?- trait pr?senter des difficult?s, le Gouvernement Fran?ais se r?serve la facult? de d?signer exclu- sivement la Douane de Paris pour l'admission de ces marchandises.

ARTICLE V..

Chacune des Hautes Puissances Contractantes s'engage ? faire profiter l'autre de toute faveur, de tout privil?ge ou abaissement de Tarif, que l'unc d'elles accorderait ? une tierce Puissance pour l'importation de marchandises mentionn?es ou non dans le Trait? du 23 Janvier, 1860.

ARTICLE VI.

Le Tarif annex? ? la pr?sente "Convention entrera en vigueur dans un d?lai qui ne pourra d?passer le 1er Juin, 1861, pour les fils et tissus de lin, de chanvre, et de jute, et le 1er Octobre sui- vant pour tous les autres articles.

ARTICLE VII.

La pr?sente Convention aura la m?me dur?e que le Trait? conclu entre les Hautes Puissances Con- tractantes le 23 Janvier dernier, dont elle est l'un des compl?ments.

ARTICLE VIII.

La pr?sente Convention sera ratifi?e, es les ra- tifications en seront ?chang?es ? l'aris dans le d?lai de quize jours, ou plus t?t si faire se peut.

Eu foi de quoi les Pl?nipotentiaires respectifs l'ont sign?e, et y ont appos? le cachet de leurs

THE FAMINE AND ITS PALLIATIVES.

As the season advances, the calamity impending over some of the Districts of the North-West Provinces gathers deeper shodes and becomes invested with a more tragic interest. It is no longer a question of fact as to whether Famine is to be met or no in the Northern Doab. On authority above all question or suspicion, the reality of the terrible visitation has been placed beyond doubt. In the details published in the Supplement to the Gazette of the 29th ultimo, a series of pictures of suffering

are presented to us, so clear in outline and so vivid in coloring, that none who look on them are likely to refuse to the sufferers their earnest sympathies, and, if need be, their abundant help.

Excepting only in the narrow tracts of country lying under the shadow of the Iimmalayas, and having their climatic condition influenced by the vicinity of the mountains, there has been no rain crop from lands naturally irrigated. It is only where artificial irrigation from wells, tanks, or canals is procurable that any food-grains have been raised for man or beast. Scores of miles of country are spoken of, which present no green spots to the eye, save here and there a few sickly patches of stunted wheat, living feebly on the limited water supply that is available, and promissing a harvest that will be but mockery to a people perishing of hunger. The cold-weather crop, the great food crop of the Provinces, has not been even sown in these stricken Districts, except under the influence of artificial irrigation. The aspect of the country generally was described, so far back as the end of November last, as that of vast arid plains, where the soil has been baked to the hardness of iron, and where all agricultural effort is paralysed. Whole villages are said to be migrating to less desolate territories.

The last extremity of all, death by starvation, has not been unknown. "His Honor has traversed the Doab diagonally," says the official report, "from Anoopshuhur to Muttra; the Commissioner has traveled through it from Meerut to the South-Western boundary of the "Division, seeing everywhere the same unmitigated state of drought." And if this was the condition of things on the 16th of November last, it is scarcely necessary to say that the lapse of six rainless weeks between that time and this must have intensified deplorably the misery of the people. Even those Christmas rains which usually make the season one of security and gladness to the native, almost as much as to the European in the North-West, have this year utterly failed. There is now not a hope of mitigation from ordinary or natural sources to brighten the gloomy prospect that lies before us. Under these circumstances it seems to us desirable that we should make some endeavor to measure the true magnitude of the calamity. There is as much danger in exaggerating as in underrating it, and although it is undeniable that all data available for tho investigation of the subject are liable to some doubts, it is still practicable to arrive at conclusions that will be of the highest value in directing our future course.

It is very important to note, first, that the Famine is, correctly speaking, a local one. Its range is no doubt large, and the population it affects is numerous enough to make the difficulty of saving thein from starvation most grave and formidable. Still it is unquestionable that the famine-stricken area is small in comparison with that of the Districts adjoining it, whence surplus grain may be attracted by famine prices. Hence, we would hope for an effective palliative from, that source. But all foolish interference on the part of ill-informed local officers, with the natural flow of trade under conditions like those we have to deal with, must be peremptorily checked. Such interference can have no other result than to aggravate the horrors of Famine, while it inflicts a grievous injustice and wrong on the farmers and traders of the protected Districts, by depriving them of most profitable markets. So far as perfectly reliable information is as yet, before us, we conclude that the Famine is restricted in its greatest intensity to the Districts of Seharunpore, Mozuffernuggur, Meerut and Boobundshuhur, East of the Jumma, and Muttra, Westwar of that river. Future experience probably will extend the range of the Famine, but for the moment, at any rate, the above are the only Districts in which its pressure is such as to have elicited official reports or to have required active measures to lighten it. To these Districts, therefore, we request attention, and primarily to the extent of their population. The following Abstract will serve to give a sufficiently accurate conception of this for all practical purposes:→→→→

Although the statistics of the North-West Provinces may not be perfectly reliable, we shall not be far from the truth in assuming that the six famine-struck Districts contain a population of about 4 millions, distributed in very nearly equal parts between the agricultural and non-agricultural classes. It is on the 2 millions forming the first mentioned class that the cala- mity will fall with its most disastrous force, but no such great convulsion as is implied in their misery can possibly occur, without producing the most serious distress among the traders and artisans of the towns and villages, who form the man sections of the non-agricultural class. Hundreds of bonds link the two classes together in intimate union, and their adversity, like their prosperity, must be a common fortune. Hence, we must expect that the suffering masses will be largely supplied from sections of the community, not directly dependent on the land.

But a considerable deduction must be made on account of the population of those parts of the Districts where artificial irrigation is sufficiently abundant to save the crops. After full consideration of this point, we believe that about three-fourths of a million will fairly represent this fortunate section of the community. Further deductions must be made on account of persons having independent resources, of the number who will manage to subsist on reduced means and avoid absolute destitu- tion, for emigrants who will leave the Districts, and for those who, on many miscellaneous grounds, may be preserved from the necessity of appealing to public charity. Making, however, the largest and most liberal allowance for these numbers, it is im- possible to conceive that they can exceed from about 1 to 13 millions in all the Districts together. We fear much, that in assuming these figures to represent the aggregate of the classes capable of self-support, we present too favorable a picture of the possibilities of the case, but taking even the highest, we come to the terrible conclusion, that in a very short time hence- perhaps in a month or six weeks--we shall have, at the very least, a million and a half of men, women and children, between whom and death there will stand nothing, but the helping hand of human charity.

What resources are available to meet this sad demand upon us? All the suffering Districts, except Muttra, are traversed by canals of irrigation. Seharunpore, Mozuffernuggur and Meerut are, in this respect, doubly fortunate, since on one side they are watered by the Eastern Junina Canal and on the other by the Ganges Canal. Boolundshuhur and Allyghur are par- tially irrigated from the Ganges Canal only. The rivers supplying these Canals are, however, in a sensible degree, affected by the drought, and it is sometimes a matter of difficulty to fill them. The Lieutenant-Governor laments, that the failure of the Ganges Canal supply at the most critical period of the rain crop should have aggravated the general misfortune; but, for the cold weather crop, the supply is as abundant as it is possible to admit with safety into the channel. The supply of Eastern Jumna Canal has been continuous, both for the rain and cold weather crops. Whatever therefore of alleviation can be given at the present time from canal irrigation, must be attributable to the Eastern Jumna Canal only, and it will not be before the very end of March, or beginning of April next, that the influence of the harvest saved by the Ganges Canal can be felt in the markets. The food-grains of the rain crops saved by irrigation from the Eastern Jumna Canal must have amounted to about a million of maunds, of which about 700,000 would be reserved for feeding the population of the Canal Districts, while surplus produce to the extent of 300,000 maunds will have been made available for export, and would realise at present Famine rates about a million and a half sterling.

It will give a more complete view however of the Palliatives to be found in these Canal works, if we take their action for a complete year. The last is the best we can have, as its results must have influenced very materially the present state of affairs. In 1859-60, the produce of food-grains, from lands watered by the Eastern Jumna Canal, was, we are informed, in round numbers, about 24 millions of inaunds. Of this quantity about 1 millions must have been required for local consump-

tion, leaving about three-fourths of a million of maunds for the markets of the distressed Districts. Similarly the Ganges Canal aust have watered land producing in 1859-60 about 63 millions of maunds of grains suited for food, and the largest estimate of the supply for local consumption within Canal villages can scarcely raise it above 43 millions, thus leaving 2 millions clear for export. Thus then these two Canals contributed in 1859-60 to the food markets of the North-West about 2 millions of maunds of grains suited for the food of man, and a corresponding quantity of straw fodder for cattle. The aggregate results during the present year will not be quite so high, both because of the failure of the Ganges Canal to protect the rain crop and of the influence of the drought on the volumes of the supplying rivers. Even however with these abatements the beneficial in- fluence of the Canals has been and will be immense.

It is impossible to make more than the very roughest guess at the probable produce of the land beyond the influence of the Canals. We are told on the highest authority, that it is only in the vicinity of wells or tanks that any crop at all exists. It must not be overlooked that the same drought which dries the soil to metallic hardness, parches up the springs, both of wells and tanks; and we greatly fear that, rigidly speaking, we ought to conclude that any Palliative from well or tank irrigation is not to be relied on. In ordinary seasons the breadth of land under cultivation in the six Districts is rather over 5 millions of acres, of which probably about three-fourths, or roughly 33 millions, are under food crops, in both harvests. It would, however, be a large estimate that would put the watered area,-wells or tanks being the sources of supply,-at one-tenth of the total area, and it is from this narrow field of some 375,000 acres only, that even the most sanguine can look for any food grains in addition to those furnished by canal-irrigated lands during the current year. The yield per acre will be far below the or- dinary average. Taking one kind of grain with another, we doubt if more than one million of maunds could be calculated upon, even supposing that the wells continued moderately well supplied with water.

By the close of the present season, therefore, it may be expected that the Districts will supply from their own interior resources about 5 or 5 millions of maunds of grain, which, however, it must not be overlooked, cannot affect the markets either within or beyond irrigated tracts earlier than April next. Now for the whole food supply of the Districts between, say, the 1st of January and 15th of April 1861, not less than 75,000 maunds daily, or about 8 millions of mannds, must be provided, and of this quantity, it is vain to look for more than about 13, or at the very utmost 2 millions of maunds from the produce of the Districts themselves, even with all the help irrigation can have giver them. Hence 6 millions at least must be imported either by aid of private enterprise or by the action of Government.

We have previously estimated the proportion of the population which will be reduced in the course of the season to absolute destitution at about 1 millions. It is possible that this number may only be gradually arrived at, and allowing for this, we may take an average of only a million to be fed. Reducing rations of food to Famine standard for men, women and children alike, and economising to the utmost we think justifiable, we cannot see how life is to be maintained among them for those 34 months for any smaller supply of grain then about 14 million of maunds, the whole of which must be issued either without return at all, or for the only return these wre ched people can offer their personal labor. Now 14 millions of maunds are 50. millions of seers, and taking superior and inferior foed-grains together, it will probably not be excessive to assume the averago bazaar rate at 12 seers for the Rupee. Whence we conclude that from 4 to 4 millions of Rupees, or ?150,000 sterling, must be expended on food alone to avert the frightful possibilities of the next few months. The alternative is, that the people must be allowed to perish by tens of thousands, while we stand by in pitifal imbecility. And even if we were to succeed in tiding the 'stream of misery over the immediate crisis, and suppose the sufferers to have all the help which the harvest to be reaped in the Spring can give them, we have beyond that time equally dark prospects, if they be not even darker than have now to be looked at and thought of.

We leave these details to the consideration of our readers. We know well they will create among them a deep and uni- versal sympathy. They will see that, tone down our descriptive terins are cautiously as we may, it is a calamity that cannot be painted otherwise than as awful which we ask them to centemplate. It has ceased to be imminent, and is among us with all its sad and ghastly features, growing gradually larger and more stern. The measures of initigation adopted by the Govern- ment are but as drops in the ocean. They scarcely penetrate beyond the merest surface of the misery, or meet it to even the tithe of a tithe of its lenght and breadth. What are a few loaves and fishes among so many? Sixty thousand pounds is a generous donation even for a Government, and especially for a Government harassed on all hands by financial difficulties of the gravest kind. But its expenditure will barely be felt in mitigation of the great woe, and it must be multiplied many-fold, if it is to produce any material impression upon it. The community, we believe, only awaits the signal from Government, that its help is needed and would be welcome, to come forward with that broad and generous liberality which has never been known to turn away from a righteous appeal. And there are communities beyond our own, who would at once open their hearts and hands to such claims as the present. We believe the time has come to state them with all the force which official authority can give to them. We trust very soon to see the Government and the community working earnestly together to lighten the great burden of suffering and sorrow which those unhappy Districts will have to bear.-Friend of India, 10th January, 1861.]

THE FAMINE IN THE NORTH-WEST AND THE PUNJAB.

The circle of suffering widens, as we had led our readers to expect it must widen, with the mere lapse of time. To the districts in the North-Western Provinces before indicated must now be added that of Agra and the whole of the Delhi Territoty. There are grounds for the gravest anxiety regarding the prospects of the Cis-Sutlej Districts, and unless the rain we have lately had here has extended beyond the Sutlej, the Spring crop even up to the West of the Indus will be in jeopardy. We have looked to the vast wheat fields of the Punjab as one of the great granaries for the districts East of the Sutlej, but if failure of rain there too should destroy the hope of a present harvest it will prove a deplorable aggravation of the general misery. It is as yet however only possible that such a result may have to be met; it will not be matter of certainty till ten or twelve days hence. What is certain at this moment, however, is that to the number of people previously stated as the population of the famine- struck districts must now be added about 3 millions more, making the whole in round numbers about 7 millions. And of these we believe we may take about 2 millions as representing the proportion at present wholly incapable of self-support, either from want of means to purchase food or from physical incapacity. When once the grip of the famine has laid hold firmly of a Some of the details laid before the Public district, the rapidity with which its influence spreads is startling and terrible.

?

Meeting in Calcutta on the 21st instant, and the accounts which appear from time to time in the North West Journals, illus- trate this very strikingly. Many there were quite unprepared to learn that in the Delhi Districts crowds of human beings were living on the raw berries of the jungle; that thousands had lost all ability to move near to the means of subsistence and were perishing in their desolate villages, that the village accountants who were able to keep up their records, recorded little else than the deaths of their people from lack of food. Yet these facts were supported by the highest local authority and con- firmed to the meeting by the testimony of an earnest and intelligent eye-witness. The raising of the curtain on such scenes of misery must quicken sympathy and stimulate action, while it brings into clear view the swift march of the calamity with which we have to contend. The demands of the sufferers have grown of course with the growth of their numbers. To feed the whole at famine rates will require about 33 millions of maunds of grain, the cost of which would be about 12} millions of Rupees or ?1,250,000.

The community of Calcutta has thus far responded nobly to the appeal of the Chamber of Commerce. In three days up- wards of thirty thousand rupees have been placed at the command of the Committee, and the stream of charity is still, we trust, far below its full flood. Madras and Bombay will doubtless move at once, and if the tidings of these sufferings touch, as touch they will, the warm sympathies of the people at home, they will not deny to millions of the native subjects of the Queen that munificent charity which they are now pouring out on thousands of the suffering subjects of the Sultan. There is no great

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH MARCH, 1861. room for difference of opinion as to the destination of the sum that may be collected in Calcutta. The first want of the famine- struck districts is, for the present at least, simply MONEY. There is every reason to believe that food is available for purchase, at high rates indeed, but in sufficient quantities. Private enterprise is playing its usual natural and healthy part in such emergencies, and to interfere with it in any way, so long as it is plainly adequate to all needful aids, would be Leaving therefore the supply of grain in the hands of the merchants now stimulated to extraordinary exertions and justly re- pure fatuity. warded for them by famine prices, what the Committee have to do is to make their money reach the sufferers either as payment for labor or as food, through the channels that will make it go farthest and do most. European residents ready and willing to make their wants widely known, may absorb much too large a share of such aid as is There is some danger that localities having available, to the exclusion of the remote but not less suffering village communities. Now whoever else may forget these villages it is absolutely certain that the Revenue Officers from the Lieutenant-Governors to the Deputy Collectors, never will de so, for the sufficient reason that on the villages the land Revenue depends, and with it all the personal interests and pro- fessional instincts of these gentlemen are intimately allied. It is probable therefore that, taking a large view of the matter, every one will agree that it is safest and best for those at a distance and wholly unacquainted with the distribution of suffer- ing in detail throughout the different districts, to work through Local Authorities of known reputation and capacity. Hence the decision of the Executive Committee to make their first remittances for the North West to Mr. Edmonstone, and for the Punjab to Sir Robert Montgomery, will be generally accepted as the soundest they could have arrived at under present cir-

cumstances.

The following Report of the Board of Education for 1850, is published for general information.

By Order,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Victoria, Hongkong, 2nd April, 1861.

W. T. MERCER,

Colonial Secretary.

In fowarding to His Excellency the Governor a Report of the Government Schools for the past year, the Board of Education has to commence with expressing its regret that it cannot be so full and thorough as might be rendered under more favourable circumstances.

The Inspector having resigned his situation in the month of June, the Board was not able to exercise so careful a super- vision of the Schools, particularly the more distant ones, as he had done.

Pending the appointment of a successor to Mr. Lobscheid, or the adoption of a new system of management which the Board submitted to His Excellency in September, the Revd. Mr. Irwin undertook to look after the Schools from Webster's Bazaar Eastward as far as Sai-wan; the Revd. Dr. Legge to look after those in the Middle and Upper Bazaars; and the Revd. Mr. Beach to look after the other Schools in Victoria and at West Point. These Gentlemen have endeavoured to discharge the duty so undertaken as efficiently as their other engagements would admit.

The larger Schools, those namely in the Middle and Upper Bazaars, Tai-ping-shan, Tang-lung-chow and Bowrington, have been carried on with a good degree of success. There were complaints indeed about the School at Bowrington in the first part of the year, but they were obviated by a change which the Board made in regard to the Teachers.

Mr. Irwin reports favourably of the school in Wong-nei-chung, the Hakka schools at Tang-lang-chow and Show-ke-wan, and of the school at Sai-wan.

At the beginning of the year two Teachers were appointed to several of the schools, but the benefit has not equalled expectation. The Board is of opinion that excepting in the very largest schools, it will be advisable to encourage a monitorial system in preference, in the arrangements for next year.

The attendance has been in general good, as is shown by the Tabular Statement which accompanies this Report. It fluctuates, however, and in all the schools it gradually diminishes towards the end of the year. This is an evil, which is un- avoidable in the village schools, where the children are drawn off to assist in agricultural labours, and where the fishing population is large. But the Board is of opinion that it may be combatted to some extent even in those cases, and more in the schools in Victoria, and other benefits also be secured, by the institution of a judicions system of rewards for good attendance, good behaviour and proficiency.

The Board cannot speak very favourably of the English classes. The Teachers, indeed, are willing and attentive, but they need the counsel, and countenance also, of an Insector. Sall the Bound does not recommend any considerable change in the arrangements of this department, for the coming year. Education in English should in its opinion enter more largely into the conduct of the principal schools than it has yet done. Some at least of the young men now employed may be ouud useful assistants, in the new plan of management which the Board has submitted to His Excellency,

In conclusion, while the Board of Education cannot rejoice in the Government Schools as being all which could be desired, it is some matter of satisfaction that they are more efficient than they formerly were. It looks forward to a time when they will become not only a great benefit to this Colony, but exercise an important influence on the system of Education pursued in the schools of China itself.

* THE NEW SYSTEM REFERRED TO IN THE ABOVE REPORT,-PREPARED BY THE REVEREND DR. LEGGE.

To the Members of the

BOARD OF EDUCATION.

VICTORIA, 11th July, 1860.

GENTLEMEN,--The Inspector of the Government Schools having resigned his Situation, we shall probably be requested by His Excellency, the Governor, to recommend some other gentleman to till the vacant office, and if a competent person shall not immediately be met with, a more careful supervision of the Schools will devolve upon ourselves. The present seems a favourable opportunity for me to solicit your attention to some thoughts concerning the management of the Schools, and the general promotion of education in this Colony under the auspices of the Government, which have been revolved by me for many years; and if

you concur in the propriety and advisability of my views, I would beg that they may be laid before His Ex- cellency, with the favourable recommendation of the Board.

The appointment of a European Inspector was a great improvement on the system by which the Schools were previously conducted, and we owe much to Mr. Lobscheid for the increased efficiency of the old Schools under his management, and for the establishment of many new ones. Having been resident in the Colony (with the exception of temporary absences) since 1843, I have rejoiced to witness how attention to the important business of education has grown, in some roportionable de- gree, with its general growth and prosperity.

But great results cannot be realized under the present system. There are about twenty Schools distributed over the island. The pupils are mostly children of the poor, whose attendance is irregular, and cannot be calculated upon for a series of years. The teachers are in general men of no particular qualifications for their work. The teachers of English are young men whose own knowledge of our language is only rudimentary. The Inspector does not teach himself, but his business is to see that the teachers do their duty, and to assist them by his counsel. We cannot expect that he will spend more than two or three hours in each School in the course of every month.

The plan which I would recommend instead of this is the following:-

First. That there be erected a building in Victoria, in which the Schools now maintained in T'ae-ping-shan, the upper and central Bazaars, Webster's Crescent, and near the Mosque, shall be concentrated in different rooms.

Second. That in connection with this building there be provided a residence for a European Master, who shall form and conduct English Classes; and that only in the Schools concentrated there shall English be taught.

Third. That this European Master, aided by a Board of Education, constituted like the present, or modified as cir- cumstances may render desirable, exercise a Superintendence over the other Schools in Aberdeen and the villages over the Island.

This plan would retain all the advantages of the present system of inspection, and might be expected to produce real and definite results, which cannot now he looked for.

In the first place, the Government would have an officer, himself actively engaged in the work of education.

In the second place, the English education carried on under the Master's eye would be more efficient than it is now, and he would be able to collect into his own classes he pupils whose progress and interest in their studies gave promise of their making real attainments.

In the third place, many young Chinese, well-educated in Schools in China, and connected with Chinese firms and fami- lies in the Colony, would be found to enter his English classes.

In the fourth place, an impulse would be given to the Chinese education carried on in the concentrated Schools. The teachers under the immediate and daily observation of their superintendent might be expected to be diligent, and earnest to further the progress of their pupils. And an influence would go out from their Schools, which would tell upon those in the villages.

There would be the outlay for the building which this plan supposes, but the permanent expenditure for such a system would not be very much larger than that of the present. And fees should be charged from pupils attending the English classes, who did not enter from the Government Schools. My own opinion is that these would amount to no inconsiderable sum.

But I beg to submit to you that it ought to be so, of Justice is conducted in the English language, and according to English law. It ought to be so, that an influence may go forth from the island, which shall be widely felt in China, enlightening and benefiting many of its people.

At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 4th day of February, 1861.

PRESENT,

The QUEEN's Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

Whereas Her Majesty was pleased, on the twenty-third day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, to issue a certain Order for the exercise of the power and jurisdiction which Her Majesty has in the dominions of the Tycoon of Japan, under and by virtue of an Act of Parliament made and passed in the Session of Parliament holden in the sixth and seventh years of the reign of Her Majesty, intituled "An Act to remove doubts as to the exercise of Power and Jurisdiction by Her Majesty within divers Countries and Places "out of Her Majesty's Dominions, and to render the same more effectual." And whereas it is expedient that the said Order should be amended as hereinafter mentioned. Now, therefore, in pursuance of the above recited Act of Parliament, Her Majesty is pleased, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, to order, and it is hereby ordered, as follows:

I. The seventh and eight Articles of the said Order of the twenty-third day of January, A.D. one thousand eight hundred and sixty, shall be, and the same are hereby revoked and cancelled, save and except as to all acts, matters, and things done under the said seventh and eighth Articles of the said Order, or either of them, or which may hereafter be done under the same, or either of them, by Her Majesty's Consul-General, or by any Consul, Vice-Consul, or Consular Agent in Japan, or by any person duly authorized to act as such, previously to the day next succeeding the day on which this Order shall be received by the Consul-General in Japan.

II. And it is further ordered, that any charge against a British subject for a breach of any rules and regulations other than those relating to the observance of Treaties be heard and determined by the Consul; and in all cases in which the penalty shall not exceed two hundred dollars or one month's imprisonment, the Consul shall hear and determine the charge summarily, without the aid of assessors; but when the penalty attached to a breach of any rules and regulations other than those relating to the observance of Treaties, shall amount to more than two hundred dollars, or to imprisonment for more than one month, it shall be obligatory upon the Consul before he shall proceed to hear the charge, to summon two British subjects of good repute, residing within his district,, to sit with him as assessors, which assessors shall, however, have no authority to decide on the innocence or guilt of the party accused, or on the amount of fine or imprisonment to be awarded to him on conviction; but it shall rest with the Consul to decide on the guilt or innocence of the party accused, and on the amount of fine or imprisonment to be awarded to him: Provided always, that in no case shall the penalty be attached to a breach of rules and regulations other than those for the observance of Treaties, exceed five hundred dollars, or three months' imprisonment; and provided further, that in the event of the said assessors, or either of them, dissenting from the conviction of the party accused, or from the penalty of fine or imprisonment awarded to him by the Consul, the Consul shall take a note of such dissent, with the grounds thereof, and shall require good and sufficient security for the appearance of the party convicted at a future time, in order to undergo his sentence, or receive his discharge; and the Consul shall, within twenty days, report his decision, with all the particulars of the case, together with the dissent of the assessors. or either of them, and the grounds thereof, to Her Majesty's Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary and Consul-General in Japan, who shall have authority to confirm, or vary, or reverse the decision of the Consul as to the said Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary and Consul General may seem fit: Provided always, that if an appeal shall be entered against the decision of the Consul, no such report shall be made to Her Majesty's Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary and Consul-General, on the ground of the dissent of the assessors, or either of trein, but the appeal shall be prosecuted in the manner hereinafter ordered.

III. And it is further ordered, that in any question relating to the observance of Treaties, or of rules and regulations for the observance of Treaties, or of rules and regulations other, than those for the observance of Treaties, a report of any and every decision made by a subordinate Consular Officer, with or without the aid of assessors, shall be sent in by such subordinate

the

superior Consular Consular Officer to the superior Consular Officer of the district, and that on the receipt of such report, Officer of such district shall proceed, without assessor to revise such decision as to him may seem fit, and such revision shall have, for the purposes of the said recited Order, and of this Order, the same effect as if the case had been originally heard and determined by such superior Consular Officer, with or without the aid of assessors: Provided always, that in any case in which the assessors, or either of them, shall dissent from a decision of a subordinato Consular Officer, auch decision shall not be subject to revision by the superior Consular Officer, but, in the event of no appeal being cutered as aforesaid, shall be submitted

Well, let

Colonial Secretary's Office, Victoria, Hongkong, 19th April, 1861:

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET, 1st February, 1861.

SIR,-I transmit to you a copy of a letter from the Promoters and proposed Trustees of the Exhibition of Works of Ie- dustry and Art of all Nations to be holden in London in the year 1862.

You will see that these gentlemen are desirous to learn from what Colonies articles will be sent for exhibition, and also to be put in communication with such persons or bodies in each Colony as are likely to command the confidence of those who may become exhibitors.

It is, I am sure, unnecessary for me to urge upon you the adoption of any means in your power for furthering the im- portant object in view, and I shall be glad to learn that the Colony under your government is prepared to become a Contributor to this undertaking.

The general conditions of the Exhibition will be made known to you as soon as they are completed.--I have the honour to be, Sir, your most obedient humble servant,

NEWCASTLE.

SIR H. ROBINSON,

Sc., sc.,

&c.

:

LONDON, 18th January, 1861.

MY LORD DUKE,-I am directed by Earl Granville to intimate to your Grace that the Promoters of the Exhibition of the Works of Industry and Art of all Nations, which it is proposed to hold in the year 1862, are about to apply to Her Ma- jesty for a Charter of Incorporation, by which certain Trustees, to whom the management of the Exhibition has been confided, may be vested with the powers requisite for effectually carrying out the projected undertaking.

:

The names of the Trustees are as follows:-

The Earl Granville, K.G., Lord President of the Council.

The Marquis of Chandos.

Thomas Baring, Esq., M.P.

C. Wentworth Dilke, Esq.

Thomas Fairbairn, Esq.

The Trustees have every reason to believe that the application for a Charter will be favourably entertained: but, as some short interval must necessarily elapse before the usual preliminary formalities can be complied with, they are anxious that no time should be lost in giving notice of the intended Exhibition to the distant Colonies of the Empire.

I am therefore directed to request that your Grace will do the Trustees the favour to take the necessary steps for making known to the various Colonial possessions and dependencies of the Crown, that the Exhibition will open on Thursday the 1st of May, 1862, and that the Trustees are very desirous to learn from what Colonies articles will be sent for exhibition, and also to be put in communication with such persons or bodies in each Colony as are likely to command the confidence of those who may become exhibitors.

The Exhibition will be held in London, on a convenient site which has been placed at the disposal of the Trustees by the Royal Commissioners for the Exhibition of 1851, in the immediate vicinity of the ground occupied in 1851, by permission of Her Majesty, on the occasion of the first International Exhibition.

The general conditions of the Exhibition, and the terms on which exhibitors will be invited to take part in it, will shortly be published, and the Trustees will at once communicate them to your Grace.

In the meantime I am to state that the Exhibition, in its leading Patures, will closely resemble that of 1851-pictures, however, being added on this occasion--and that such preparations as can be made, in anticipation of more detailed information, may proceed upon this understanding.

As the demands for space, however, will, in all probability, be very much in excess of what it will be possible to provide, so that quality and not quantity, will have mainly to be looked to in deciding upon the articles to be admitted, the Trustees. hope that the greatest care will be exercised in selecting good specimens of the Industry and Art of each Colony, and more especially of its natural productions.

As your Grace will readily understand that, sc soon as proper channels of correspondence have been opened, the Trustees will have many matters to which to draw the attention of the Colonies, which are likely to take an interest in the undertaking, they venture very earnestly to request that the earliest opportunity may be taken for making known the substance of the pre- sent communication to the various Colonial authorities.I have the honour to be, my Lord Duke, your Grace's very obedient

HYDROGRAPHIC NOTICE. (No. 9.)

INDIAN OCEAN-GLENDINNING SHOAL.

Bearings are Magnetic. Variation 0° 15′ West in 1861.

Captain Glendinning, of the barque Queen Mab, of Liverpool, reports that on his passage from Singapore to the Cape of Good Hope, on the 20th October last, in lat. 9° 54′ S., long, 97° 50′ ?., he came upon a dangerous shoal not marked in any of the charts, and lying in the direct track of vessels coming from the Strait of Sunda on their homeward

voyage.

Captain Glendinning states that at 9 P.M. of the above date he observed the water all around the ship much discolored, in appearance milky white; that he immediately hove the ship up in the wind, had a cast of the hand lead and got 7 fathoms, but the next cast (having run about 2 miles W.S.W.) had no bottom with the band lead. The water continuing discoloured, at 11 o'clock, having run 10 miles further to the W.S.W., love the ship to, and sounded with the deep sea lead in 55 fathoms, hard ground.

Caution. This shoal lies about 130 miles N.N.E., of the Keeling or Cocos isles and directly in the track of ships on the' homeward voyage from China and Singapore by the Strait of Sunda.

As it is most desirable to verify the cast of 7 fathoms and to ascertain how far the bank extends, any Captain passing this neighbourhood is requested to get a few deep sea casts of the lead, and, if time and circumstances will permit, to endeavour to trace the possible connexion of the bunk with the Cocos Isles.

Hydrographic Office, Admiralty, London, 1st February, 1861.

This notice affects the following Admiralty charts on which this danger has been inserted:-Indian Ocean, General Chart, No. 2483, and Indian Ocean, castern part, No. 748c.

SIR,--With reference to the printed "Decisions" of Her Majesty's Commissioners which have already reached your Excellency through the Secretary of State for the Colonies, I am now instructed to enter into some further explanations, for the information of the gentlemen, in the Colony under your Government, who may undertake the duty of forming a Collection for the International Exhibition in 1862.

In the first place, it would facilitate the arrangements here if the appointment of the Commission or Central Authority referred to in the "Decisions" were to take place at as early a period as practicable.

Your Excellency will have remarked, that no article will be admitted from the Colonies without the sanction of such Commission or Central Authority, and it is important that Her Majesty's Commissioners should know with whom they can officially correspond. Upon this point I am instructed further to observe, that it is highly desirable, in the interests of the Colonies, that whoever may be nominated as Agent in this country, should be a man of business, well acquainted with the resources of the Colony he represents.

The lists of articles adinissible are so ample as to include every kind of produce, raw or manufactured, with only the three specified exceptions. With regard to one of these, viz., "fresh vegetables and animal substances liable to spoil by keeping," it seems desirable to explain that the term "fresh" is to be literally interpreted; therefore articles of export, in whatever manner prepared, so as to keep without undergoing change, will be admissible.

Produce such as Wine, or other articles the result of fermentation, now admissible, although excluded from the Exhibition of 1851, will be submitted to the judgment of a Special Jury, who will decide upon their respective merits.

In the article of Timber, the specimens should in all cases be converted into plank or scantling, of such a size as to show its mercantile value. If possible they should be four inches thick, and ent so as to show the "sap" on both edges. Moreover, since there is great uncertainty as to the origin of much Colonial Timber, it will be very desirable that each kind of timber should be accompanied by a few twigs showing its leaves and flowers, when procurable. If the latter are pressed between sheets of paper enclosed in boards, they will furnish the evidence required.

Each Colony will have a separate space-assigned to it in which to exhibit its products, distinct from that of other Colonies. It is, however, the wish of Her Majesty's Commissioners also to classify Colonial Raw Produce, bringing all Textile Materials, all Minerals, and so on, into our general comparative view; and they therefore invite Exhibitors to furnish, when practicable. duplicate specimens for that purpose.

Her Majesty's Commissioners will be prepared to receive all articles which may be sent to them, on or after Wednesday the 12th of February, and will continue to receive goods until Monday the 31st of March 1862 inclusive.

Articles of great size or weight, the placing of which will require considerable labour, must be sent before Saturday the 1st of March 1862; and manufacturers wishing to exhibit machinery, or other objects, that will require foundations or special constructions, must make a declaration to that effect on their demands for space.

Any exhibitor whose goods can properly be placed together, will be at liberty to arrange such goods in his own way, pro- vided his arrangement is compatible with the general schieme of the Exhibition, and the convenience of other exhibitors.

Where it is desired to exhibit processes of manufacture, a sufficient number of articles, however dissimilar, will be ad-

mitted for the purpose of illustrating the process; but they must not exceed the number actually required.

Exhibitors will be required to deliver their goods at the building, and to unpack and arrange them, at their own char- ge and risk; and all articles must be delivered with the freight, carriage, porterage, and all charges and dues upon them paid. Packing cases must be removed at the cost of the exhibitor or his agent, as soon as the goods are examined and deposit- ed in charge of the Commissioners.

general regulations, to erect, according to their own taste, all the counters, stands, glass frames, brackets, awnings, hangings, or similar contrivances which they may consider best calculated for the display of their goods.

Exhibitors must be at the charge of insuring their own goods, should they desire this security. Every precaution will be taken to prevent fire, theft, or other losses, and Her Ma- jesty's Commissioners will give all the aid in their power for the legal prosecutio of any persons guilty of robbery or wilful injury in the Exhibition, but they will not be responsible for losses or damage of any kind which may be occasioned by fire or theft, or in any other manner.

Exhibitors may employ assistants to keep in order the ar- ticles they exhibit, or to explain them to visitors, after obtain- ing written permission from Her Majesty's Commissioners; but such assistants will be forbidden to invite visitors to pur- chase the goods of their employers.

Her Majesty's Commissioners will provide shafting, steam (not exceeding 30lbs. per inch), and water, at high pressure, for machines in motion.

Intending exhibitors, in the United Kingdom, are request- ed to apply, without delay, to the Secretary to Her Majesty's Commissioners, at the Offices, 454, West Strand, London, W.C., for a Form of Demand for Space, stating at the same time in which of the four Sections they wish to exhibit.

Foreign and Colonial exhibitors should apply to the Com- mission, or other Central Authority appointed by the Foreign or Colonial Government, as soon as notice has been given of its appointment.

Her Majesty's Commissioners having consulted a Commitee as to the organization of the Fine Art Department of the Ex- hibition, will publish the rules relating thereto at a future date.

Any exhibitor whose goods can properly be placed together, will be at liberty to arrange such goods in his own way, pro- vided his arrangement is compatible with the general schieme of the Exhibition, and the convenience of other exhibitors.

Where it is desired to exhibit processes of manufacture, a sufficient number of articles, however dissimilar, will be ad-

mitted for the purpose of illustrating the process; but they must not exceed the number actually required.

Exhibitors will be required to deliver their goods at the building, and to unpack and arrange them, at their own char- ge and risk; and all articles must be delivered with the freight, carriage, porterage, and all charges and dues upon them paid. Packing cases must be removed at the cost of the exhibitor or his agent, as soon as the goods are examined and deposit- ed in charge of the Commissioners.

general regulations, to erect, according to their own taste, all the counters, stands, glass frames, brackets, awnings, hangings, or similar contrivances which they may consider best calculated for the display of their goods.

Exhibitors must be at the charge of insuring their own goods, should they desire this security. Every precaution will be taken to prevent fire, theft, or other losses, and Her Ma- jesty's Commissioners will give all the aid in their power for the legal prosecutio of any persons guilty of robbery or wilful injury in the Exhibition, but they will not be responsible for losses or damage of any kind which may be occasioned by fire or theft, or in any other manner.

Exhibitors may employ assistants to keep in order the ar- ticles they exhibit, or to explain them to visitors, after obtain- ing written permission from Her Majesty's Commissioners; but such assistants will be forbidden to invite visitors to pur- chase the goods of their employers.

Her Majesty's Commissioners will provide shafting, steam (not exceeding 30lbs. per inch), and water, at high pressure, for machines in motion.

Intending exhibitors, in the United Kingdom, are request- ed to apply, without delay, to the Secretary to Her Majesty's Commissioners, at the Offices, 454, West Strand, London, W.C., for a Form of Demand for Space, stating at the same time in which of the four Sections they wish to exhibit.

Foreign and Colonial exhibitors should apply to the Com- mission, or other Central Authority appointed by the Foreign or Colonial Government, as soon as notice has been given of its appointment.

Her Majesty's Commissioners having consulted a Commitee as to the organization of the Fine Art Department of the Ex- hibition, will publish the rules relating thereto at a future date.

By Order,

Exhibitors will be permitted, subject only to the necessary

Offices of Her Majesty's Commissioners,
