Transcript 6 EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. XII. Dancing Girls and Musicians. This is an exact representation of a set of Dancing Girls and Musicians, drawn from the life at Bombay. The costume of these courtezans varies according to their taste, whether Hindoos or Mahomedans, and it seldom happens that two are dressed exactly alike, either in their robes, or ornaments. XIII. -~ Manner of travelling in a Palanquin in India. This was the general construction of a palanquin, until the late improvements by the Europeans settled in Bengal, especially in one kind, which forms almost a small chamber, with windows of Venetian blinds to admit the light and air, as required. The bearers occasionally relieve each other; and on a journey, relays of bearers are placed at convenient distances. XIV. mm*—* An Indian Hackeree, drawn by Guzerat Oxen. This is engraved from a sketch by Count de Montalembert, of an Indian Hackeree, or chariot, with two wheels, and is an exact representation of that vehicle, as also of the breed of oxen, peculiarly trained for that purpose, as particularly described in the work. Many hackerees have four wheels, and accommodate a small family. The costume of the natives in the back-ground is equally characteristic. XV. A Mahomedan Youth of Distinction. This plate represents the usual character, appearance, and dress of the Mahomedan boys, in the best Mogul families settled in the western provinces of Hindostan. They do not always wear ear-rings; but when dressed are adorned with rows of pearl, diamonds, rubies, and emeralds; also rings of great value.
