THE CANTON REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 13 September 1828

THE CANTON REGISTER. By the favour of Captain Harper of the ship Ephe- mina, we have had the pleasure to peruse some of the early numbers of this weekly English Journal lately commenced in China. It contains besides English news, selections from the various Chinese publications, and will doubtless be read with great interest throughout the civilized world. When his celestial Majesty issues an edict, he writes it with his own hand, in vermillion ink. The civil commotions in Cashgar having been completely subdued he conferred various honours on his officers, civil and military. On Tsaonchinyung, member of the imperial council, was conferred the honour of using a purple bridle, and of being created imperial instructer. On Wangting, President of the Board of Revenue, was conferred the right of wearing at- tached to his cap, a peacock's feather: the edict   concludes in these words—"and as to the rest of the   officers let a list of them be made out and submitte...
