In the "1,1w Magazine and Review" for August there appears a timely article deal- ing with the treaties which have been made between Great Britain and China. The first dates from 1842. rnd allowed British .-Itil).iec-ts to trade in China, but only I in spoeified ports, including Shanghai and Cow! 011. In that ,I car Hong Kong was! ceded. A supplementary treaty was made ill 184:¡, which provided that British sub- jects should be oil the most favoured ration footing. This was followed by the nccea-Tigrh Convention of 1810, and the Treaty of Tientsin in I808, which con- firmed that c-i 1"42 and allowed Great Britain to appoint Consuls and British subjects to travel for pleasure or trade in the interior, except at Peking, with pat-apart*. British merchants were now allowed to trade on the upper Yazig-tse. In 18G0 was signed the Treaty of Peking. .After this we had the Chefoo Agreement. of 1876, when more ports were opened to trade. This has been lately augmented. Ten years later an agreement was signed by which Great Britain guaranteed the integrity of Korea. Two years ago an extension of Hong Kong territory was granted, and Wei-hni-Wei was leased to us for so long a time as Port Arthur was j leased to Russia. Last year Great Britain and Russia mutually agreed not to interfere with each other in the Yang-t;e Valley and the territory of the Great Wall, the former J¡"ing reC01;llised as the. British spVre of influence and the latter as I Russian. The treaties between China and other nations are to the samo effect, the policy of the "open door" being observed in all ca. es.
