years in so high latitude without getting the
scurvy. They must have been reduced to salt
ing down fowl for the Winter of 1848-50, which
would accelerate this disease very materially.
They must have been very weak front it in the
Summer of 1850. Tho Esquimaux agreed
saying that there was no old man in the party;
so Sir John must have gone before. He asked
the Esquimaux why tliey did not feed them, but
they answered that they were almost starved
themselves. Starvation, he found, carried off the
Esquimauxat times. Sixty of his old friends died
of it in one season. When the sea animals shift
ed their ground, they were particularly liablo to
this. On this occasion, the conjurer of the par
ty strangled himself; one of tho men froze him
self to death, and two young girls, whom he
saw again, maintained themselves by eating
others of the party. Tho Esquimaux were can

He could not well have spent another Winter
there without provisions, so he returned to York
Factory and took tho vessel for England. It
was not surprising that when he returned and
searched tho place, there should be no traces
of the bodies; the point was occasionally cov

off at some time during the Winters and Sum

LORD ELGIN’S VISIT TO JF.DDO AND A
DESCRIPTION OF TIIF. CITY.
From tlie Eastern Correspondence of the Lon
don Times we copy tho following interesting
account of tho visit of Lord Elgin and Suite to
tho Capital of Japan—and a description of the
city—now for tho first time laid open to Euro
pean gaze. The visit of Lord Elgin was for the
purpose of presenting the Japanese Emperor
with a steam yatch, and making a Commercial
Treaty. In accomplishing the latter, the Ame*
rican Consul-General Harris and his interpreter
were of indispensable service to the British
Embassy, which is handsomely acknowledged:—
Siinoda is about eighty miles from the city of
Jeddo, situate at the extreme point of tho pro
montory which forms one side of the capacious
bay, or rather gulf, at the head of winch the
capital is placed ITp this hay the squadron

“1H5. Hchadeoly three years’
the 12th, and passing through the Straits of
Uraga, the left shore of which is feathered with
rich verdure and indented with little bays,
reached a point opposite the ]>ort of Kanagawa,
beyond which no foreign ships had ever ven
tured, and where the Russian squadron could
then lie discerned at anchor. Captain Osborn,
however, professing his readiness to explore the
unknown waters at the head of the hay, and to
approach as near the city as possible, Lord Elgin
seemed determined not to lose an opportunity
of establishing a precedent likely to lie so im
portant in our future intercourse with Japan,
and to the astonishment of both Russians and
Japanese, the British ships deliberately passed
the sacred limit without communicating with
tho shore, and a few minutes after were cautious
ly feeling their way round a long spit of land
which runs far out into the hay, and offers some
danger to the navigator. An instinct for deep
water must have guided tho ships along the
channel, which was afterwards found to be suf
ficiently narrrow and tortuous, hut at last all
our doubts as to tho feasibility of the enterprise
were removed by the appearance of several large
square rigged Japanese vessels at anchor, the
draught of water rtf which was a guarantee for
our own. Behind these rose gradually- out of
the waters of the bay a line of insulated forts,
which marked tho defences of Jeddo, while an
extensive suburb, running along the western
shore, formed a continuous street as far as the
eye could reach. The ships ultimately anchor
ed in three fathoms ol water, about a mile and
a half from this suburb, and the same distance
from the fine island forts above mentioned,
which are situated on a sandbank, the interven
ing channels being always covered with water.
About a mile beyond these forts and parallel to
them lay the main body of the city, the wooded
height, on which is situated tho Castle of the
Tycoon, forming a conspicuous object The
arrival of tho British souadron in waters which
the Japanese had sedulously represented as
being too shallow to admit of tlic approach of
large ships filled them with dismay and aston
ishment ; boats followed each other with officials
of ascending degrees of rank to beg them to re
turn to Kanagawa; and finally urgent repre
sentations were made to the Ambassador on the
subject Tlie pleas generally put forward were
amusing and characteristic:—First, it was said
the anchorage was dangerous, but the presence
of their own squadron was referred to as an evi
dence to tho contrary; then that it would be
impossible to procure and send off supplies, but
it was protested that if necessary we could do
without those. Tho merits and comforts of
Kanagawa were expatiated on in vain; the
paramount duty was the delivery of the yacht
at Jeddo, and to deliver the yacht there it was
necessary to remain at the present anchorage.
No sooner was this settled than the Japansc in
their usual way became perfectly reconciled to
the arrangement sent off supplies with great
willingness, and began to prepare a residence
on shore for I-oni Elgin and las staff It ap
peared that Count Putiatino had been delayed
for ten days negotiating on this subject at Kana
gawa, and only succeeded in taking up his resi
dence at Jeddo on the same day that we cast
anchor before the town. He had made tlic jour-
noy overland from Kanagawa, a distance of
The landing ora British Ambassador in state
at the capital of the Emnirc of Japan was only
in keeping with tlic act of unparalleled auda
city which had already been committed in an-
choring British ships within tlic sacred limits
of its harlior. Japanese officials were sent off
to superintend the operation, hut they little ex
pected to make the return voyage in one of her
Majesty's gunboats, with thirteen ships boats
in tow, amid the thunder of salutes, the in
spiriting strains of a naval band, and tho flutter
of hundreds of flags with which the ships were
dressed. Close under tlic green lotteries,
threading its way amid hosts of huge masted
broad-sterned junks, the little Lee, surrounded
by her gay flotilla, steamed steadily, and not
until the water had shoaled to seven feet, anil
the Japancso had ceased to remonstrate, or even
to wonder, from sheer despair, did she drop an
chor, and the procession of boats was formed,
the four paddle box boats each with a 24 pound
howitzer in her bows, enclosing between them
the Ambassador's barge, the remainder of the
ships’ boats with captains and officers all in
full dress*]ending the way. The hand struck up
“God Save the tjuecn” as Lord Elgin ascended
tlic steps of the official landing place near the
centre of the city, and was received and put
into his chair by sundry two sworded person
ages, tlic rest of the mission, together with
some officers of tlic squadron, following on

to condense within tlie limits of a letter the ex
periences and observations of a residence in the
capital of an empire about which the informa
tion at home is so very scanty, which presents
probably a greater variety of interesting and cu
rious matter to the stranger than any other part
of the world. Suffice it to be recorded xs our
general impression that, in its climate, its fer
tility and its picturesque beauty, Japan Is not
equalled by any country on the lice of the glebe;
while, as if to harmonize witii its surpassing
natural endowments, it is peopled by a race
whose qualities arc of the most amiable and
winning description, and whose material pros
perity has been so equalized as to insure happi
ness and contentment to all classes. We never saw
two Japanese quarrel, and beggars have yet to
be introduced, with other luxuries of Western
civilization. It is not to bo wondered at that a
people rendered independent by the resources
of their country and tlie frugality and absence
of luxury, which so strikingly characterize them,
should not have experienced any great desire to
witablieli an intoroonrae with outer rations,
which, in all probability, would carry in its
train giy«tcr evils than could be compensated
for by its incidental advantages.
