Transcript »■■ ■■!■■■ ■pw.au >■ / EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. 19 LXV. Bridge over the River Biswamintree, near Brodera. This being the only bridge of any consequence I ever sawT in India, I have introduced it as a specimen of those structures. It is built of stone; and, during the floods in the rainy season, when the stream frequently rises thirty or forty feet, and rushes with astonishing velocity through the upper arches, it is of so great use in the province, as to render it astonishing it has not been imitated near other principal towns. This bridge was erected when the Moguls possessed Brodera. LXVL The Red, Blue, and White Lotus of Hindostan. These Water Lilies were drawn and coloured from nature : they are particularly described in various parts of the Memoirs, and almost cover the Indian lakes. When gently agitated by the breeze, they give them a beauty and freshness not easily conceived by the inhabitants of a colder climate. LXVII. View of Onore Fort, after the Siege in 1783. This engraving was made from a drawing taken on the spot by an officer, after the siege by Tippoo Sultan's forces in 1783, when it was most gallantly defended by Major Torriano and a small garrison, as fully related in the Memoirs. LXVIII. The Black and White Kingfisher, and Spotted Frog of Malabar. These are both mentioned in the preceding account of the natural history of Tellicherry. The former frequently varies in its plumage, the black marks being sometimes less regular and more predominant; but it always forms a pleasing contrast to the brilliant azure, green, and golden plumage of the other birds of this species. The Frog, so richly adorned by nature, is not uncommon in the lakes of Malabar; which also abound with the aquatic plant introduced in the plate, and many others of singular beauty.
