Note 378, p. 321.- Of her dream.-See p. 215.
Note 379, p. 322. Like that painted porcelain. “The Chinese had
formerly the art of painting on the sides of porcelain vessels fish and
other animals, which were only perceptible when the vessel was full of some
liquor. They call this species Kia-tsin, that is, azure is put in press, on
account of the manner in which the azure is laid on.”_“ They are every
now and then trying to recover the art of this magical painting, but to
no purpose.”Dunn.

Note 380, p. 323.-House of Azor.-An eminent carver of idols, said in the Koran to be father to Abraham. “I have such a lovely idol as is not to be met with in the house of Azor.Hafiz.

Note 381, p. 323. The Unequalled.—Kachmire be Nazeer.— Forster.

Note 382, p. 324.- Miraculous fountains.—“The pardonable superstition of the sequestered inhabitants has multiplied the places of worship of Mahadeo, of Beschan, and of Brama. All Cashmere is holy land, and miraculous fountains abound.”—Major Rennel's Memoirs of a Map of Hindostan.

Jehanguire mentions“ a fountain in Cashmere called Timnagh, which signifies a snake ; probably because some large snake had formerly been seen there.”—“During the lifetime of my father, I went twice to this fountain, which is about twenty coss from the city of Cashmere. The vestiges of places of worship and sanctity are to be traced without number amongst the ruins and the caves, which are interspersed in its neighbourhood.”—Toozek Jehangeery.—Vide Asiat. Misc. vol. ii.

There is another account of Cashmere by Abul-Fazil, the author of the Ayin-Acbaree, “who," says Major Rennel,“ appears to have caught some of the enthusiasm of the valley, by his description of the holy places in it."

Note 383, p. 324.--- Roofed with flowers.—“On a standing roof of wood is laid a covering of fine earth, which shelters the building from the great quantity of snow that falls in the winter season. This fence communicates an equal warmth in winter, as a refreshing coolness in the summer season, when the tops of the houses, which are planted with a variety of flowers, exhibit at a distance the spacious view of a beautifully chequered parterre." -Forster.

Note 384, p. 324.—The triple-coloured tortoise-shell of Pegu.—“Two hundred slaves there are, who have no other office than to hunt the woods and marshes for triple-coloured tortoises for the King's Vivary. Of the shells of these also lanterns are made.”— Vincent le Blanc's Travels.

Note 385, p. 325.Like the meteors of the north as they are seen by those hunters. For a description of the Aurora Borealis as it appears to these hunters, vide Encyclopædia.

Note 386, p. 325.-Odoriferous wind. This wind, which is to blow from Syria Damascena, is, according to the Mahometans, one of the signs of the Last Day's approach.

Another of the signs is, “ Great distress in the world, so that a man when he passes by another's grave shall say, “Would to God I were in his place !"-Sale's Preliminary Discourse.

Note 387, p. 328.-A8 precious as the Cerulean Throne of Coolburga.“On Mahommed Shaw's return to Koolburga (the capital of Dekkan), he made a great festival, and mounted this throne with much pomp and magnificence, calling it Firozeh, or Cerulean. I have heard some old persons, who saw the throne Firozeh in the reign of Sultan Mamood Bhamenee, describe it. They say that it was in length nine feet, and three in breadth ; made of ebony, covered with plates of pure gold, and set with precious stones of immense value. Every prince of the house of Bhamenee, who possessed this throne, made a point of adding to it some rich stones ; so that when in the reign of Sultan Mamood it was taken to pieces, to remove some of the jewels to be set in vases and cups, the jewellers valued it at one corore of oons (nearly four millions sterling). I learned also that it was called Firozeh from being partly enamelled of a sky-blue colour, which was in time totally concealed by the number of jewels.” — Perishta.
