About this Item

Title
Zhang Xianghe zou gao : bu fen juan.
Other Title
張祥河奏稿 : 不分卷.
Summary
Collection of memorials from Zhang Xianghe to Emperor Xianfeng, sent each month during the year 1853, the year when Zhang was promoted from Governor of Shanxi Province to serve in the capital. Only eight volumes of material from that year were preserved. The records of the first lunar month are lacking.
This work contains memorials written by Zhang Xianghe (1785-1862), dating from January-December 1853, the third year of the Xianfeng reign, with those of the month of January incomplete. According to the biography of Zhang Xianghe in chapter seven of Qing shi gao (History of the Qing dynasty), Zhang achieved his jin shi (doctoral degree) in 1820 and assumed a number of posts, eventually rising to the post of president of the Board of Works in 1859-61. In 1853, when these memorials were written, Zhang was recalled to the capital from Shaanxi Province, where he had been the presiding magistrate. These memorials were probably written while he was still in Shaanxi, but they were not printed at the time, thus parts of them were lost. In one of his memorials, Zhang proposed that due to the increasing military actions in the southeastern region, it was imperative to strengthen the military forces' training and to raise defenses. He also recommended the bao jia system (an administrative system for organizing the population based on households) to maintain public order. Only eight out of what most likely were 50 or 60 volumes of Zhang's memorials have been found--these documents written in his last year as magistrate. No information is available on whether other volumes still exist. World Digital Library.

-  清張祥河撰。按此本存咸豐三年正月至十二月,正月份復有殘缺。攷清史稿祥河本傳云:道光二十四掙陝西巡撫,三十年文宗即位,應詔陳言,請述祖德,守成法,勵官方,蠲民欠。咸豐二年,東南軍事日棘,祥河奏言,陝西興安等地,毗連楚境,應舉行團練,擇要防堵。惟鄉勇良莠不齊,易聚離散,不如力行保甲,為緝奸良法。三年召還京」。第七冊謝恩疏稱:「臣於十一月二十八日接准部咨,欽奉上諭:張祥河著來京,另候簡用」,正與清史稿合。疑祥河曾彙陝西巡任內奏稿為一集,未刻散失。此僅存其最末一年,已有八冊,則全書應有五六十冊。餘冊未審尚在人間,能為延津之合否耶?
