by the wood-cutters and falt-makers whose "dreadful trade” is exercised at the constant peril of their lives : for the tygers not only appear on the inargin in quest of prey, but often, in the night time, swim to the boats that lie at anchor in the middle of the river.

These passages are used during the whole year, by those who go to and from the lower parts of the Ganges and Calcutta, &c: and during the season when the western branch of the Ganges is almost dried up, the whole trade of Bengal (the western provinces excepted) passes either by Channel-creek, or Baliagot, but chiefly by the former ; some articles of the Company's cargoes being brought more than goo miles by water, at this season.

EXPLANATION of PLA TE, N°. I.

A. A. A. Steep Banks, corroded by the current; the fragments of

which are deposited, and form the Banks B. B. B. c. A sand Bank, accumulating to an Iland. This once joined to

D; till insulated by a breach of the river. E. An Inand, formed and inhabited. This also was a land-bank, thrown

up

round the point F.
G. An Inand accumulating in the midt of the Cliannel.
H. The line of the strongest current.
I. A Gulf occasioned by the force of the current, from the op-

posite side, striking against the Bank: the origin of a future branch
issuing from the great river. In a course of time, the first reach
of it becomes retrogade to the course of the river (see note, page
263) as at K and L.

N. B. The section of the Branch of the Ganges is exactly similar to that of the Ganges itself, except in the article of width.
