Major Potter, Secretary of tho
Foreign Oflice, early this morning
went to tho office of Mr. T. Rain
Walker, British Vice Consulate, to
tender his services, as such might
be helpful, on behalf of the Min
ister of Foreign Affiirs,on the sad
Iu view of tho long service of
tho late Commissioner in Japan, a
Bulletin reporter this morning
called ou Captain Kurookn, of H.
I. J. M.'s 8. Naniwa, for particu
lars. Tho Japanese commander
had just been apprised of the sad
event, aud, with an absence of
words that was affecting, produo
ed from his desk a copy of Mr.
Hawes' original commission in tho
British navy as second lieutenant,
which he U keopiug ns a souvenir
of personal friendship with the
diplomat whose loss is mourned.
The commission is dated at Buck
ingham Palace, December '23, 1859.
Captaiu Kurookn says that
many of the officers on board
both tho Naniwa and Hiyei of tho
Japanese navy, now in port, had
the benefit of Lieutenant Hawes'
instructions. Lieutenant Hawes
wns attached to the Japauese ilac
ship Riujiro as gunnery instruc
tor, nnd afterward organized the
infantry corps of marines. He
was lator instructor at tho Imperi
al Naval College in infantry
tactics and fortifications, as well
as in the English language.
Lieutenant Hawes was altogether
fourteen years iu the 6ei vico of
His Imperial Japanese Majesty.
Ho taught discipline and routino
to the Japanese navy, nccording
to British modes, in that time. In
appreciation of his services tho
Emporor of Japan decoratedLien
touaut Hawes with tho 3rd Class
of tho Secret Treasure aud tho 4th
Class of the Risiug Sun.
While our representative was
still in conversation with Captain
Kurooka, an officer from H. B.
M. S. Penguin came ou board the
NaniwB, with a messago from
Captain Field formally announc
ing the death of Her Britannic
Majesty's Commissioner. He
said that the body was expected
iu the Kiuau between 2 and 4 p.
m. today, and that it would bo met
by n guard of honor from the
Penguin. Tho arrangements for
the funeral could not bo made
until after tho arrival of Mr.
Walker, lliH Vice Cousul General,
with tho body.
Captain Kurooka, signaliug to
tho Bulletin man to remain, ex
pressed his deep persouai sonow
at the lobs of Captain Hawes, as
that of an intimate friend. IIo
instructed the mesonger to in
form Captain Field that ho should

was placed in a specially con
structed caso filled with ice, placed
betweou decks and guarded by na
