李鐘玨:《新加坡風土記》17

69 西國於大小書院外,別有博物院。所以考平日之耳聞,徵諸目見,實與書院相輔而行,於學問一道大有裨益者也。叻中博物院,規制甚隘,儲物無多。然惈之族有巨人全體之骨焉。毛之族有虎、豹、犀、象及馬、牛種種焉。羽之族有射屏之孔雀焉。鱗介之族有鱷魚、巨黿焉,皆習聞而罕見者。至如彌之類十有餘。鸇之類二十有餘。蝶之類百有餘。鸚鵡綠者正色,而或朱或黃或白或黑。蝟之毫如刺,西人取以為筆,而其形如狼而無尾。豕與羊有一首而二身者。魚之首有如人面者。蟒之長有十餘丈者。又若各國古衣冠、古戰具、古錢,奇奇怪怪,莫殫其數。然聞倫敦博物院百倍於此,殊興望洋之嘆矣。

70 西人醫院之設,所以惠濟窮黎非淺。其治法有與中國不同者,故華人每震駴(駭)不敢入。然其規制之善,固可仿行。……坡中醫院,為英人所設,地寬廣,病房潔淨透風,人設一榻外,又具長棹凳,以時食息。病者或偃或立,或坐或行,無拘苦狀。……

71 閩廣沿海人民,至南洋各島謀生,雖已日久,然皆貿易之商賈,或以負販營生,一廛受處,即佣工之輩往時航海而來,亦多有依托。二十年來,西人開墾招工,佣值頓貴。於是販賣人口出洋者,名曰賣豬仔。設館於澳門,公然買賣,沿海人民或被騙,或被劫,一入番舶,如載豚豕。西人以賣者賤視之,即亦虐役之,其慘有不可言狀者。迭經查禁,一時稍戢,日久網疏,此風漸長。近來廈門、香港每一輪船開行,搭客多至千人,少至四五百。其中自願出洋者固多,被拐者當亦不少。去歲竟有拐同母兄及從兄來坡者。經粵省大憲訪聞行查,遞籍其由,領事就地訪確,超拔遣回者,近歲較多。
