Having come to a stream of water, which runs into the Tanasserim ; and in or er to avoid an extremely hadjoad over an xceeding high mountain, our natives in a w minutes, made us four bamboo rafts, on which we, and our company wete rricd the rest of the way. These rafts ere about 4 feet wide and 20 or "30 in nth, with elevated places for our bag Te to keep it from the water. This was )us a novel way of traveling; and for a ne quite amusing, until we became too eary to enjoy it. The stream being very pid and reeky, our men were obliged fre lenily to jump off in order to steady the fts down ihe rapids, which in some places ere sevtrit frei fall of water.

For instance, there is a man that takes a newspaper ;"lhis is only a small sum, and the publisher cannot send a collector to every individual; so this man lets his subscription lie along perhaps for years, and perhaps never pays it.
