{When Captain Cox returned from Rangoon, from the embassy described in this original work, he found that Sir John Shore, under whose auspices he went, had sailed for Europe, and been succeeded as Governor-General by the Earl of Momington, who expressed himself perfectly satisfied with his conduct during his negotiation with the Burmhan Government. The tyranny of the Burmhan Government in the province of Arracan, having, in 1T98, driven a considerable bod; of its unfortunate inhabitants to the resolution of abandoning their homes and native country, to seek a precarious existence in the woods and forests, which form the boundary of toe British territories on tbe Chittagong frontier;—to give immediate assistance to these unfortunate beings, Captain Cox was commissioned by the Governor-General to proceed toChittagong, for the purpose of arranging tbe most effectual means of relieving their necessities, by giving them a permanent settlement on the waste lands of that extensive district. In an active performance of the arduous duties of this situation, and in a cliamte peculiarly noxious to an European constitution, Captain Cox persevered I ill his own life became a sacrifice to his zeal and sense of public duty. Hi* premature death at tbe age of thirty-nine years, in the midst of public employment, of a nature that demanded the whole of his time and attention, therefore, prevented his making many additions to his journal from his private memorandums, (which it was his intention to bave done had bis life been spared ;) or even of arranging the matter it contained for the press.]


AS the journal of a voyage is usually barren of events which can afford either interest or amusement, and is Monthly Mao. No. 363.

generally a repetition of remarks on the wind and weather, I shall commence my detail, says Capt. Cox, with the arrival of the Swallow packet in the Rangoon river, October 8, 1796, where I was met by a boat containing the king's linguist, who brought me a present of fruit from the Shabunder* of Rangoon, and informed me, that the Nathan and a Sercedoghee were in waiting at the entrance of the river, to compliment ine on my arrival.

October 9. To-day, two war canoes came along-side, each rowing about ten oars, with music playing, which consisted of two pipes, sounding like the bagpipe, and called in the Burmhan language, Nhae, a tomtom,t and a pair of cymbals. The seat in these boats for passengers is placed on the bow, with a raised platform and canopy, the stern being elevated above the water about six feet or more; the rowers sit two on a bench, using short oars like paddles; the steering oar is also like a large paddle, fixed obliquely, and worked with a pin or arm on its side, by way of tiller. The stern is ornamented with bushy tails, something like small chowries,t hung all round, and a long pole projects over it. In these boats were a Nakhan, or reporter, and a Sercedoghee, or writer, sent by the Rangoon government to compliment me on my arrival. I received them in the cabin, and gave them chairs to sit on; they were well-dressed, handsome men, above the middle stature, with flue open countenances, and an olive-brown complexion; they had small, thin beards from the tip of their chins; their hair gathered up and tied in a knot on the crown of the head, and their teeth quite black.
