But knowing lating the manner in which the open trade, thus permitted, the divine wish of his great master to cherish both those should be carried on; and this act provided for the appoint within and those without, he was unwilling to involve ment of a superintendent of the China trade; to whom, thousands of the latter in ruin for the disobedience and residing in China, were granted the powers deemed neces- obstinacy of one individual.

Matters being thus brought to extremities, said, “ I hereby issue an order to the said hong-merchants, the resolution was taken to order up his Majesty's ships, that they may forthwith enjoin my command on the said Andromache and Imogene, which were anchored without nation's chief, early to send a letter home, that if, indeed, the Bogue.

continued suspension of intercourse; and on the 14th he announced his determination to yield, and to quit Canton. The ships of war, also, on the demand of the native government, were ordered to move out to Lintin. It was at first intended to bring up a British cutter for his lordship; but, by arrangements afterwards made with the hong merchants, two chop-boats were provided, in which he embarked on the evening of the 21st. Although there had been a full understanding that he should be conveyed in a commodious manner, suited to his dignity and with the utmost possible despatch, it was soon discovered that they were under the convoy of several armed boats, which proceeded so very slowly that they anchored for the night still in sight of the town. They reached Heang-shan on the 23rd, at midnight, but were there detained for nearly two days, amid a tremendous beating of gongs, noise, and confusion, which severely aggravated his illness. It was not till after the most urgent representations, that Mr. Colledge, the surgeon, obtained a pass to proceed; nor did they reach Macao till the 28th. His lordship's weakness, however, which, at his departure was so great, that he required to be assisted into the boat, had increased so much, that the attentions of his family and medical attendants were of no avail, and he expired on the 11th of October. The functions of superintendent then devolved on Mr. Davis.

The Chinese authorities, according to custom, transmitted to court a boastful account of this transaction; representing Lord Napier as having been admitted to mercy only after the most humble submission, and then ignominiously driven out of Canton. As it had, however, been previously necessary to intimate the fact of the ships having forced their way up the river in defiance of the forts, that proud government, unwilling to own its weakness, threw the whole blame on the officers employed. In the "vermillioncoloured reply," it was said, "it seems that all the forts are erected in vain; they cannot beat back two barbarian ships;

it is ridiculous, detestable. The military preparations
being reduced to such a state as this, it is not surprising
that the outside barbarians regard them slightingly." By
a mandate from the tribunal of war, the naval officer im-
mediately in command, was degraded, and condemned to
wear the cangue, or wooden pillory, in public at the mari-
time entrance. All the officers on duty at the forts were
to carry the same disgraceful badge; he, the naval com-
mander-in-chief, had, by gross negligence, shown himself
wholly unworthy of employment, and was therefore deprived
of it. Even Governor Loo must have his two-eyed pea-
cock's feather plucked out and lose some of his titles; but,
as he had announced certain active measures as new in
operation for expelling the barbarians, he was allowed to
retain the command, with injunctions, to carry his plan into
effect.

[ocr errors]

The departure of Lord Napier was immediately followed by the re-opening of the trade, which took place on the 27th of December following. Speaking of Lord Napier, Mr. Reynolds, the historian of the Voyage of the United States' Frigate, Potomac, says, that his name will be remembered as that of a benefactor to the commercial world. "The English," continues this American writer, "have made a good beginning by battering down the Chinese forts on the river Canton; we hope they will follow it up, and with increased force teach the Chinese a still more impressive lesson of barbarian justice and prowess.' A certain amount of fighting is necessary, and the sooner it is done the better." To this sentence there is a note appended, rather curious for its amusing candour. "The English," says Mr. Reynolds, "who have so often fought the battles of their continental neighbours, will most probably perform this service, from which we shall be equally benefited; and should they now, as formerly, be content with the glory they may acquire for their pay, we cannot object, provided we increase our trade, and increase it we will."
