Among the passengers on the steamship Gaelic, which arrived on Friday from China, is Jack Yuen, who presents a passport issued by the Chinese Consulate in this city, indorsed by the United States Consul at Hongkong, R. E. Withers. The letter approved the certificate on receiving a letter from the Chinese Consul-General and Consul Bee, in which they asked that Jack Yuen might be lawfully landed in this city.
