Description

Excerpt from Papers Relating to the Riot at Canton in July 1846, and to the Proceedings Taken Against Mr. Compton, a British Subject, for His Participation in That Riot The foreign community formed themselves into watches for the night, and were stationed at the several gates of the factories, and the avenues leading to them, the Chinese military officers disposing of their force in the manner they thought most advantageous. The rest of the night passed without further disturbance. Early this morning I received assurances from the authorities that they would use every endeavour to prevent further mischief, and they entreated me to urge upon my countrymen to keep quiet within their fac tories. Several ships' boats having arrived with men from Whampoa, it was soon found necessary to prevent them from obtaining spirituous liquors. I accordingly issued a circular to our merchants, calling on them to keep the crews of such vessels as were consigned to them, within their respective factories, and again exhorting them not to commit any acts of aggression, but to use all preper means for the protection of their lives and properties.
