2991 LOFTUS (W. K.) Inscriptions on the Columns and Bricks dug out amongst the

Ruins of Susa, oblong folio, a Series of 19 large plates, hf. bd., UNPUBLISHED, 12s

1852 Plate 7 exhibits the “Characters or Marks on glazed composition Bricks, Ruins of Susa."

The learned Mr. Loftus was sent by the Assyrian Excavation Fund and afterwards by the Trustees of the British Museum (with a salary of £500. per annum), to attend, under Sir Henry Rawlinson, to the important discoveries made at Susa. The above Series of Inscriptions contains careful facsimiles of the Inscriptions; the reading of them must be left to the ingenuity of gifted philologists. The copy at the Department of Antiquities, British Museum, consists also of 19 plates. I believe that was the only copy issued by the late Mr. Loftus. 2992 Rich (C.

It would appear that there are only three English interpreters available for our use in all China. Mr. Wade and Mr. Parkes are worked beyond all reason, and, what is more to the purpose, they toil in vain to overtake the exigencies of the public service. Mr. Alabaster, a young man of some acquirements in Chinese, is in attendance upon Yeh. There is a Chinaman named Wang, and a Portugueze named Lozario. These are the only mouths through which we can communicate with this people. All the other Chinese scholars are, I suppose, engaged in their consular or their missionary labours. Where are the students' who are sent out with a salary to learn Chinese? Some say the experiment is yet so young that they have not had time to earn; others affirm that they are taken from their studies to do clerks' duties as soon as they arrive in China, and therefore never will have time to learn ; and there are others who say that, notwithstanding the King's College examination, the choice is made with so little discrimination as to aptitude for learning languages that they never can learn. As to the cause I am not confident, but the effect is certain--they are not available in any number proportionate to the demand for their services,

• Where are the interpreters who were to be supplied by the Bishops' College, an institution that I believe has for some years received £250. annually for this purpose ? It has never yet turned out one Chinese scholar. In the destitution which exists, I understand that some of the pupils of this College have been employed to interpret in the Police-Court, I can testify that their performance is most distressing to witness. A question from the magistrate is followed by a five minutes' wrangle between the interpreter and the witness or prisoner. I am told that their Chinese has the greatest possible degree of remoteness from resemblance to Mr. Davies's English, and it would certainly puzzle a jury of sphinxes to understand the English they extract from Chinese.

" If we are to have an extensive intercourse with China we must have a large staff of interpreters, who should be confined to their duties as interpreters."
