ation on that subject. On motion of Mr. S. N.
Castle, Mr. W. L firetii was called to the chair, when
the meeting being calll to onler, Mr. A ilder, at the
request of the ("hiiirmnn, made his statement as
Mr. Chairman a.nd Gextlemkx : You will notice
, that in the report I have to make to you to-night.
there will be found some difference in the views I
have to express and thoe contained in my first letter
to the Association on this sulject. A five months'
resi jencc ani expfcrjei,ce in China IcJ to these
, , 1 .
changes from my first impressions,
With strong letters of recommendation from the
"Tghett ctncials cf this Gjvernnient, and with letters
frCni Her Uiitannic Majstys Commissioner and
Cotwul-Gener 1 to the Governor of Hongkong, I left
onojuiu jn ti,e American ship Charger on the SOth
Janutry la-t, and arrived at Hongkong on March
jst Bfter a pfissage of 28 days. On that day I waited
, ,, .. .
upon Mr. Keswick, the Hawaiian Consul-General,
wi,0 receivcl me ro'itelv. but who at once informed
nie that I had no chance whatever of getting 1 iborers
there, as an onler hud recently arrivetl from the
home Government forbidding the emigration f.om '
Hongkong of any laborers under contract, except to
U.itUh Colonics and lutoh Surinam,
I then went to Cuitou where the Governor of
Hongkong, .Sir Richard MclX-i.ald Graces, was re-
siding teiiiK.niriIy, to pay my respects to him. I
stateil to him the object of my mission and presented
rny letters. He met me with great Courtesy and
kindness, aud a-ked me numerous questions ubout-
our islands, our Government. ?uirar ijlantations. &c.
and state-1 that nil he ever heard about the islands
f. vorablf. mid th.it l.e nv-r I.Mnl nnv l,:id
reports about our treatment of Chinese ; but although
wi us, it was not iM power
to concede anything beyond his instructions from
home, and which had quite receutly arrive.1, pro-
hibiting the emigrativii t-f laljorers under contract
roin Hongkong except to lintish Colonies. He said
,j,at btlieeJ tint the emigration of Chinese un-
der a f.iir and honorable contract was a boon to the
... - i . t - i i .i . .t
Chinese, but he considered that the wages that we
cQVred (tC.OO i.er month) did not imply that we
were very much in n-ed T labor. He stateil that
an exception was made iu favor of Hutch Surinam,
that Government having satisfied the Briti.h author
ities thtt their laws were sufficient to protect the
Chinese. I afterward, addressed an official note to
His Excellency through the Hawaiian Consul-General
making the same request, which I had made to him
verbally nd to which I received the following reply :

I would here state that Hongkong i. , as you are
all aware, an island belonging to the British. It is
! eleven miles long by about two to five miles wide,
containing twenty-nine square miles area, and
situatel about s'x hours efeiiming from Canton. It
coutains a population of lC!.fi'X) souls, by the last
censu?, of which 2,'VK) are what wc cill foreigners.
There are about H policemen, l!00 of which arc
; white men, 3 t- 4'h .Sikks from India, and the re
: maindcr Chinese. About 2-,000 to .'JO.OnO of the
; Chinese population arc born, live and die in boits or
'. sampans. The common laborers or coolies, as they
; are always called, get $6 per month ; toys," or a
' better clius. of men or house servants, get S10 per

for Cooks ever since, although out of proportion to
j I found in Hongkong two gentlemen, Mr. Gift and
Mr. Williams, who were endeavoring to obtain labor
j for the United States. They bad becu unable to
! make any contracts with responsible parties to fur
; nish them with laborers, the British law not allowing
j them to make any contracts. None were willing to
endeavor to obtain laborers for thetu simply on the
word of the Chinese, that they would go. They were
j therefore obliged to operate in their own names, offer
j ing as high as $13 per month wage, and found in
j every way a return passage or Si o in money at the
expiration of a three years service. Mr. Gift obtained
178 men in five months and a half, at a cost for ad
vances and passage money of 213 e tch. Mr. Wil-
I liams obtained 213 men iu the same length of time,
which cost for advances and pnssage money S315
each. Of this number 43 died on the sea passage by
sailing ship to New Orleans, which would increase
the expense of those landed. Mr. Williams bad a
good ship fitted and provisioned according to British
law, for 346 men. He had an English and two Chi
nese doctors, and yet the mortality was as stated.
With the experience of these gentlemen before me,
I did not see my way clear tcT obtain men. I was
recommended to try Amoy, and left on the 13th of
March in the steamer Douglas, and reached Amoy
on the ICth. The steamers now used on the China
coasting trade are built of iron, and are from 200 to
250 feet long, and from 350 to GOO tons measurement ;
they sit low in the water, with rather a deep draft,
large accommodation for Chinese passengers, carry a
Uargc cargo, and steam from 10 to 12 knots at sea
using about lOOOIbs of coal per hour. The cabin
passage money from Ilocgkong to Amoy was $So
On reaching Amoy, I called upon the British Con
sul. He gave me to understand that my mission was
useless, and .that nothing whatever could be done.

that this gentleman treated me with any courtesy or

structions were such that if they could be carried oat
, , J ... , ,,.
they were honorable and honest, and if he could Ob-
sin thc conM'nt f thc TouUi tr "rnor) he
would du so. After waiting two days, I received in
an envelope on a small slip of paper the following :

cndeil my hopes and efforts in Amoy, and I left for
Hongkong next day:
I next detcrmlnol to visit Macao. The distance
from Hongkong is about forty miles. The steamer,
w,jcn wa9 an American sidewacel boat, leaves every
jday at 2 p.m. The latitude of Macao is 22 11'
i north, the same as Kauai. It is bituated upon a
rnsui. about th
and it is scparatc-i from Chinese territory by a high
wall. A gate in the centre, with sentries, is opened
at sunrise and closed at sunset. This ia a Portuguese
I territory under a Governor, thc principal business of
f which is the shipment of Chinese coolies, together
'. with a little tea trade. There is an inner harbor,
which is not used generally for large vessels on ac-
count of the prevalence of hurricanes, which obliges
I ships to get under way and leave at short notice,' 90
that all coolie ships anchor from 2 to 4 miles from ;
-Lore, at which anchorage I saw th ships Dolores j
6r and Louisa Canetaro at anchor. j
The business of obtaining coolies is done only by i
nrincinals. or resident asents of the parties for j
whom thev are reouired. There is not a single firm
in the city of Macao who will obtain coolies on or
der, giving security for the advances made to them.
Each principal desiring men employs brokers, making
to them certain advances, without security, who pro
ceed up the rivers and along the coasts of China in i
Chinese junks fitted for the purpose of procuring

a thing would be absurd and unnecessary, as they j a contract with the brokers, paid $?10 a man each,
can get all the men they want, to go willingly at the
current rates. The cost of advances on coolies at
Macao are first brokerage, which varies from $55 to
$65 ; to the Government, $6 ; advance to each
coolie, 8 ; clothes and blankets, 5.25 ; inspection
of doctor 50 cents ; food consumed on board before
leaving, 1.50 to 2.00; food for the voyage. from
58 to 10 ; doctor and interpreter 1.50 ; to the
head coolie broker 3 to 85 extra. Making a total
of 03 to 100 each ; to this add exchange, about
17 ; passage from 20 to 40 ; add the probable
mortality, and we get the approximate cost of con
tract laborers brought from Macao to this place.
These laborers from Macao cost landed in Peru or
Havannah never less than 200 each ; wages 4
per week, and all contracts are readily disposed of
there at 400 each ; and I was assured by those that
knew, that the cost per month of these men Was
never less than 20 to 22 per month over all. All"
contracts in Macao for labor abroad are made for a
term of eight years. No men are allowed to be ship
ped at Macao under 20 years old, and the brokers do
not take any over 40 years old. No women are ship
ped at Macao. My honest opinion of Macao ia that
men cau be obtained there honorably and fairly, and
no injustice need be done, or to my mind is done, at
Macao, than elsewltere.
But the reason why I did nothing at Macao, was
simply because I had not funds sufficient to operate
with. I should have had in the first place, means to
buy ships, which I was not authorized to do, and my
instructions were to obtain a certain proportion of
women, which at Macao, is utterly impossible.
I returned to Hongkong, and decided to try to
obtain laborers without a contract My reasons for
so doing were that, even iu the face of the failure of
Messrs. Gift and Williams, the short distance to
Honolulu, compared to New Orleans, and that to a
certain extent we are favorably known, that all the
Chinese that have returned to China from here have
spoken well of us, and that there are n evil reports
whatever respecting the treatment of Chinese on
these islands, together with the hundreds that were
continually asking me to take them, induced me to
commence operations. First, under the law of the
country, I was obliged to give notice of my intention,
and to open emigration houses ; to procure license
for the same ; to employ brokers to procure the men,
and upon receiving them to feed them and care for
them a certain length of time before they are allowed
to go on board the ship. As contracts are not allowed,
I drew up a memorandum of agreement embodying
what we were willing to do, and what we expected
from them, and I believe that no man came in the
ship Solo without having fully and farely understood
that agreement. At this time I employed an inter
preter by name Ahiow, who was in the employ of
the English Government as interpreter of the Police
Court. I was led to employ this man by the advice
of Mr. Achuck, who had known him for years, and
he agreed to assist me in procuring my men, and
then proceed in the ship as interpreter. We held
out hopes to this man that when he arrived he might
be able to obtain employment from this Government
as Chinese interpreter, and I do hope that the Gov
ernment may find a situation for bim.
I sent Mr. Ahiow with the numerous brokers that
I had employed to procure men. Tbey were to send
me an answer in one week if men were procurable.
At this time (April 18th) -hips were very plenty,
and I had daily offers of vessels desirous of accept
ing a charter to Honolulu, and Baker's Island for
guano. One in. particular, the British ship St.
Peters, of 1450 ton-, with capacity for 600 passengers,

Ahiow promised that I should hear from him on the
night of the 23d of April. That evening at seven
o'clock, I had an interview with the Captain of the
St. Peters, at the office of Messrs. Carlowiti & Co.,
the house which I employed to assist me in charter
ing my vessels and here I would take the opportu
nity of mentioning this house as a firm extremely
courteous and business-like. The Captain urged me
to close with him at $5,000, but I had no assurance

Achuck having cngiged 40 passengers, he would

to receive men, and tlie Frederic was being fitted,
All day on the 14th, I was making out passenger j
tickets. I made out 513, expecting that some would
not go, and that I should get 400 picked men for the j
Solo. Un the morning ot tne lotn, l started the
men for the harbor master's office, aud here I would
state that every passenger that leaves Hongkong, has
to pass through the harbor master's office to obtain
a passport, giving him permissiou to leave the port.
To do this business you have to employ a broker, to
whom you have to pay from one dollar to two dollars
for each man, passed through the office. My men
had left the barracoons at nine o'clock, and up to
this moment I was convinced that every one of them,
513 men, were willing and anxious to go in the ship
Solo. I went to the harbor master's office ten
o'clock came and no men. I sent a messenger to
see what wns the trouble. Before he returned, I
went myself to find, almost half way between the
office and the barracoons, an excited crowd of say,
3,000 Chinese, among which were my men, refusiug
to go to the harbor master's office, aud stating that 1
had deceived them and misled them, and that I was
going to take them to Callao, and not to the Sandwich
Islands. By persuasion and argument I got a portion
of them to go to the office ; they entered the office in
squads of about fifty, the officer attends with an
interpreter, aud they are asked if they know where
they are going, for what purpose, what wages, and
who for ; have you made a contract ? The auswer of
course was, no, we have not, but we want to make
one. You cannot make a contract ; British law does
not allow it, unless you go to a British colony. Then
we will not go ; then go out at that dor. The
greater portion of my men took this course, went
away, while a portion of them said we believe this
man, and we are willing to go without a contract.
The result was that out of 613 men that started to
go on board the Solo that morning, 121 were all that
went on board, and of these 21 went on shore next
morning, believing that as I would not make a con
tract, that I was going to take them to Callao.
This report and this trouble was, as I was informed
and believe, caused by some of the Macao brokers,
who spread the report among the men that the reason
why I did not make a contract was because I was
going to take them to Callao, while they at Macao
would make a contract and put in it that they should
not go to Callao thus taking from me my men. The
two following days I renewed my efforts. I offered
higher brokerage, and did get a number of my old
men back, I again tried to get some responsible
party to guarantee the shipment of a certain number
of men, offering as high aa 40 apiece brokerage,
but the answer was, it was not Chinese fashion to
give guarantees, and we can make more money by
sending our men to California.
On this day 113 men arrived in two junks for the
Frederic, but they hearing the reports of the rqcn
that had declined to go in the Solo, refused even to
land, and the two junks went right back with them
to the village from whence they came, and the brok
ers had to pay the expense. At this time about as
many men were leaving the Solo aa were going on
board, and I believe that the best men were leaving,
so that with the advice of my friends, I determined
to get the ship away with the men she had. At this
time she had on board 225. I declared my intention
at the Harbor Master's office, and demanded the
usual inspection of nassenzers. The officer went on
board, inspected the men and declared that all who i
desired to go on shore could do so when 37 men
left, leaving 188, to whom I paid 10 ech advance.
You will understand, gentlemen, that thc Solo
was now provisioned tor 400 men, and that it was
impossible lor me to remove the extra quantity,
inasmuch as the men baring received their money,
it was necessary to get tinder way as fast as possi
ble, for at thin time the ship is surrounded with
hundreds of sampans with three to six men in
each boat, all tryiog to get something out of the
men on board. 1 waa obliged to pay the advance
the day previous to the sailing of the ship, and
upon the following day when I went on board
with the pilot to get the vtssnl under way. on mus
tering the men. I found one hundred and seventy
instead of one hundred and eighty-eight, to whom
I had paid the advance the day previous. Under
such circumstances, gentlemen, I at last got the
Solo off to sea.
I was now left with the Fitderic on my hands,
and not a man for her ; my barracoon9 were empty.
The three brokers whom I had engaged to bring
me the men, having brought me one hundred and
thirteen, who had all returned, became discourag
ed, and I must acknowledge, gentlemen, that I
was somewhat so myself. I was not willing to
again make contracts with men who would not
guarantee that the laborers would go, and after
trying for one week. I gave the matter up as im
possible to accomplish. I had fortunately put a
clause in the charter party of the Frederic, that in
case I failed to get the" men, I could annul the
charter by paying $1500; I therefore paid the
amount and cancelled it.
Vmi will understand, eentlemen. that had I
and before the new regulation preventing emigra
tion under contract from thence, that I would have
been assisted and protected by the British authori
ties, and that when once a man had signed a con
tract to go abroad under British regulations, they
would have obliged him to keep it, so far, at least,
that he had to go in the ship ; and I would state
here that Captain Thcmsett. the harbor master,
and the officers under him, rendered me every
assistance that they possibly could under the law.
The result of the whole of these difficulties and
troubles to you. gentlemen, will be that your con
tracts by the Solo will cost yon for advances. &c,
about $149 to 142. I cannot tell the exact amouut,
because I do not know what the expense of plac-
ing the money in London will be, where we have
to place it.
(To be continued next treefc.)
Mr. Wilder Jias requested us to state that the
figures of S140 to SI 42 each was the sum he bad
expended, but the cost of placing the money in
London, and the expenses of the vessel in Hono
lulu, which were higher than he bad supposed,
will bring the total cost of advance up to about

There is every reason to believe that tlie des
perate struggle between France and Prussia ia ap
proaching its final ftcene. Slowly but surely the
German lines arc clotting around Paris and girding
it with a circle of devastating fire. The French
still resist gallantly, and prove that their old
heroic spirit has not left them, though success no
longer follows their standard ; but all their efforts
seem unavailing, and there is every probability
that their complete overthrow cannot be far dis
tant. Already the Prussians are on the eastern
and southern boundaries of the Capital, and they
are rapidly pushing on to the west and north, so
as to completely environ the city. They are
masters of the beautiful palace of Versailles, and
their occupation of the Tuilleries may be expected
to follow almost as a matter of course. It will
be some time before the siego-guns can be placed
in position and an effective bombardment com
menced, because the French troops outside the
walls, will harass their foes and delay
operations as much as possible. The interim be
tween this time and the begining of the bombard
ment would seem to be opportune for a final at
tempt to secure peace. France is certainly will
ing to concede much ; it only remains for Prussia
to declare explicity what 6ho will accept.
