Such exhibitions, however, are not confined to this more dissolute class. Of the passion of the Javanese for play, we have another striking illustration in the artifice resorted to by the proprietors of treasure, or other valuable property, to protect it at night frmn the depredation Digitized by VjOOQ IC OF THE INDIAN I8L ANBERS.
Ill of thieves, when it is transported from one part of the country to another. Among the Malays and people of Celebes, the influence of play is still more violent.
After los- ing their money, they stake their jewels, their side- arms, their slaves, and, it is often alleged, men their wives and children, or, in the last extremity, their own personal freedom.
With these tribes, the disputes which arise at the gaming-table are often terminated by the dagger, or generate in- curable feuds between families.
Games of hazard are the favourites of the In- dian islanders. They do not much practise games of sedentary ddll, and games'of exercise are neither congenial to their habits, nor to the climate they inhabit.
From them, too, they have acquired the knowledge of cards, and of a kind of faro. From the Portuguese they have acquired the knowledge of dice, as the name daduj implies.
Among the Javanese, the only game of pure hazard of native origin, consists in guessing the number of beans, of certain de- scription, which the players hold in their hands.
It is called by them Talagatari. Of the sedentary games of skill, the native ones are a variety of descriptions played on checkers resembling our draughts.
Of the celebrated game of chess, supposed'to have been invented by the Hindus, I must on this account say more than would otherwise be necessa- ry.
The collateral evidence afforded on this sub- ject, from an examination of its history among the Indian islanders, does not tend to corroborate the hypothesis of chess having been invented by the Hindus.
The Javanese, the tribe with whom the intercourse with the ancient Hindus was most bu- sy, hardly know the game but by report, and even thus far they know it only by its Persian name.
The evidence of language not only shows this, but shows also that the Telingas must themselves have borrowed Digitized by VjOOQ IC OF TBE IKBIAN IHLAKDERS.
Bidahf a pawn, is but a corruption of the Persiftn word piadah, a foot-soldier ; ter, the Malayan name of the castle, is of the vemaodar language of Kalinga J md mat is not, as some have imagined, a corruption of the Malayan word maH, dead, but the true Persian word for check-mate, borrowed by our- selyes, and still more accurately by the French.
Is it not probable, that, had the Hindus, when they enjoyed a monopoly of the intercourse with the Indian islanders, known the game of chess, they would have recommended themselves to a people passionately addicted to play, by instructing them in this interesting game?
They did not in- strufCt them ; and the probability therefore is, that they themselves did not understand it. Sir Wil- liam Jones acknowledges, that no account of such a game exists in the writings of the Brahmans.
The cock, from his superior courage, is the great favourite ; and the diversion of cock- fighting is most especially in vogue among the Malays, the people of Celebes, and the Balinese.
The breed most esteemed is the produce of Celebes. Quail-fighting, more particularly among the Ja- vanese, is extremely common.
The most famous breed is brought from the island of Lombok. It is singular that it is the female, the male being com- paratively a timid and small bird, which is used in these bitter, but bloodless combats.
The little animals are excited to the combat by the titillation of a blade of grass judiciously applied to their noses I!
The puerility of the Javanese in matters of this sort does not end here. In a favourable day, fifty or sixty of these will be sometimes seen hovering over a Java- nese city.
The buf- falo of the Indian islands is an animal of great size and strength, and of no contemptible courage ; for he is an overmatch for the royal tiger, hardly ever failing to come off victorious in the fight with him.
It must be confessed that there is no small satisfaction in seeing this peaceful and docile animal destroy his ferocious and savage enemy.
Neither are possess- ed of much active courage j the tiger, indeed, is a coward, and fights only perfidiously, or through necessity. On this account, it is necessary to con- fine them within very narrow limits, and farther, to goad them by various contrivances.
A strong cage, of a circular form, about ten feet in diame- ter, and fifteen feet high, partly covered at the topf is for this purpose constructed, by driving stakes into the ground, which are secured by being interwoven with bamboo.
The buffalo is first in- troduced, and the tiger let in afterwards from an aperture. The tiger, soon convinced of the su- perior strength of his antagonist, endeavours to avoid him, and when he cannot do so, springs in- sidiously upon his head and neck.
In the first combat of this nature to which I was witness, the buffalo, at the very first efibrt, broke his antago- nist's ribs against the cage, and he dropped down dead.
The buffalo is not always so fortunate. In nine- teen cases out of twenty, however, the bufialo is the victor. Afier the first onset, there is little satis- faction in the combat ; for the animals, having ex- perienced each other's strength and ferocity, are reluctant to engage, and the practices used to goad them to a renewal of the fight are abominable.
The tiger is roused by firebrands and boiling water, and the bufialo, by pouring upon his hide a potent in- Aision of capsicums, and by the application of a most poisonousnettle, kamaduy a single touch of wfaiek would throw the strongest human frame into a fever.
Wild hogs, which are in vast abundance in Java, are ensnared and fought against rams and goats, a ludicrous, but bloodless combat.
The wild boar of Java is an animal of little ferocity, and not much strength. Digitized by VjOOQ IC or THE INDIAN ISLANDEHS.
In all their exer- cises they would rather sit than stand, even where there is an obvious advantage in the latter position. If, for example, a chief amuses himself with the exereise of the bow and arrow, it is always sitting, and not standing, that he takes the diversion.
When the monarch in Java, according to the custom of the east, shows himself once a week to his subjects, or the governors of provinces, ia imitation of him, to their dependents, a kind of awkward tilts are exhibited.
From the circumstan- ces of the country, the probability indeed is, as has been pointed out elsewhere, that the pro- gress towards civilization was not in general from the hunter state, but that of the fishenhan.
Some of the more abject tribes of savages, however, confined to the mountains and forests of the interior, while the fisheries of the coasts and rivers are in the occu- pation of powerful enemies, pursue the chace as the principal means of subsistence.
The negro races which inhabit the interior of the Malayan Penin- sula hunt the deer, the hog, the monkey, and all the animals of the forest, as the chief means of livelihood, and use poisoned arrows to destroy their game.
Of the civilized races who pursue the chace for amusement, the most celebrated hunters are the na- tives of Celebes, who are passionately fond of the chace.
Celebes, contrary to the more usual character of the other great islands, abounds in extensive grassy plains free from forests, which aiSbrd the proper cover and food for a variety of the best game, suck as various kinds of deer, the wild hog and ox, which are not disturbed by beasts of prey ; for in Celebes the tiger and leopard, which are plentiful in the western countries, do not exist.
Persons of all ages join in the divernon. A hunting party frequently consists of not less than horsemen. Although pretty strict Mahomedans, at such times they will not even disdain the pursuit of the wild boar, but follow him with ardour.
The chace is pursued on horseback. They are not encumbered by any useless weight, being rode bare backed, with a very slight snaffle bridle.
The tiger is sometimes pursued by the JayaBese with more skill, and in a manner peculiar to them- selves.
An extensive circle of spearmen is formed round the known haunt of a tiger, which is gradual- ly contracted, until the animal, hemmed in on all sides, is compelled at length to attempt m.

Dexterity, agility, or livelinessi are nerer attempted. Of the first kind are the war dances of the people of Celebes.
If a warrior throws out a defiance to his enemy, it is done in a dance in which he brandishes his spear and kris, pronouncing an emphatic challenge.
If a native of the same country runs a muck, ten to one but he braves death in a dancing posture. When they swear eternal hatred to their enemies, or fidelity to their friends, the solemnity is accompanied by a dance.
There is a good deid more vivacity on these occasions than I ever saw exhibited on any other of the same kind. AH orders executed in the presence of a Javanese monarch, on public occasions, are accompanied by a dance.
When a message is to be conveyed to the royal ear, the messenger advances with a solemn dance, and retreats in the same way. The ambassadors from one native prince in Java te Digitized by VjOOQ IC OP THE INDIAN ISLANDERS.
Previous to the introduction of the Maliomedan Mligion, it appears to have been the custom of all the oriental islanders, for the men of rank, at their public festivities, when heated with wine, to dance.
Upon such occasions, the exhibition ap- pears to have been a kind of war dance. The professed dancers differ little but in in- feriority of skill, from the common dancing girls of Hindustan.
So tliese dancing women sung themselves, and danced to their own music. After this the general's women, and the sultan's sons, and his nieces, danced.

The singular fact of the sovereign havings among the Javanese, the most beautiful and admir- ed of his concubines instructed to dance, and their exhibiting their performance in public, accords with what I have stated respecting the condition of women among the Indian islanders.
Upon their head they had a sort of hat, made of spangles of gold, which glittered mightily, together with a plume about a foot and a half high, made of the same spangles.
This hat buBg down upon one ear. They had large ear-pendants of spangles of gold, hanging down to their shoulders. Their girdle was tied above the haunches, from which there hung a cloth of gold, with straight breeches underneath,.

As the rudest and earliest efforts of the stage, and as af- fording interesting elucidations of the character and manners of the people, these exhibitions deserve a degree of attention which they are far from nmrit- ing on their own account.
Among the Javanese there are no dramatic writ- ings ; there is no stage, and no attempt at scenic deception.
The acting is of two kinds, in equal esteem among the people themselves, one consist- ing in the performance of living actors, and the other in that of puppets.
The first sometimes ex- hibit without masks, but much more frequently with them. They are invariably men, for women never perform.
The second are of two kinds, one consisting of ordinary puppets,' much inferior, in ingenuity, to those among ourselves, and the other of certain scenic shadows, which are peculiar and national.
These last are monstrous and grotesque figures, of about twenty inches long, cut out of a stift' untanned buffalo liide, and commonly very highly gilt and painted.
Each player does not study his part, or, at least, get it by heart ; but the little he says he furnishes unpremeditated, as his recollection of the story, or his fancy, may assist him.
This person's office is veiy inadequately described by calling him the prompt- er ; he is the soul of the whole drama, and his func- tions are better depicted by comparing him to our ancient bards or minstrels.
He does the same thing with the scenic shadows, sel- dom venturing, however, to furnish a dialogue for the puppets. The acting, consistent enough with the mannen of the people, is heavy and nouotonous.
There tt no life nor action in it, and nothing natural. Their dresses are characteristic and pro- per, generally in the ancient costume of the coun- try, suitably to the parts they have to perform.
A full band of Javanese music, in the manner of a chorus, constantly accompanies every kind of act- ing. The empire of custom, so arbitrary among all barbarians, renders it a rule not to be trans- gressed, that the performance by scenic shadows should be confined exclusively to the representa- tions of Hindu story ; the true acting to the most ancient portion of theif own legendary history, and the ordinary puppet-show to the more modem.
Besides the more regular dramatic entertain- VOL. I Digitized by VjOOQ IC 6AME8 AHD AMUffiHENTS ments now alluded to, there are two ptliers occa- sionally introduced, in the manner of interludes, between the scenes of the more regular perform- ances, which afford more amusement to the stran- ger.
One is an exhibition of buJFoonery, which I have seen so well acted as to afford much merri- ment. The only personages who eon bejacetidus, by the rules of the Javanese drama, are Sdmar and Bagongy the redoubted friends and servants of Ar- juna and Rama.
The acting of the persons who represent these characters is less constrained, more bustling, and more natural than that of any others.
So much drollery is frequently displayed as to con- vince us that the Javanese have considerable comic powers ; and that, if the sphere of their acting were enlarged, and their talent cultivated, they might make excellent comic actors.
Whatever strangers may think of the dramatic lentertainments of the Indian islanders, they excite a deep and lively interest in a native audience. MANNERS OF FOREIGN SETTLERSt Different descriptions of foreign colonists.
In their cha- racter these adventurers are shrewd, supple, unwar- like, mendacious, and avaricious. Trade is their main pursuit, but when labour is well rewarded, as in the British settlement of Prince of Wales Island, they occupy themselves in day-labour.
A large portion of these emigrants return to India, but a considerable one also colonizes in the country, in- termarrying with the natives j for it is rarely that the females of their own nation accompany them.
This description of settlers is confined to the western portion of the Archipelago, and, comparatively, few of them are found beyond Su- matra and the Peninsula.
Of all foreign nations, the Cfiinese have settled in the greatest number in the Archipelago. The Chinese settlers may be described as at once enter- prising, keen, laborious, luxurious, sensual, de- bauchedt and pusillanimous.
They are most gene- rally engaged in trade, in which they are equally speculative, expert, and judicious. This skill is adrantageously transferred to the culture of tropical products, to that of the sugar-cane, pepper, and indigo.
Thoae from the lat- ter bear a much better character than those from the former. They are rarely from the lowest or- ders of society, and they are less gross and abject in their manners.
The principal bulk of the settlers are in Java, Borneo, and the iitde island of Penang ; but a few scattered families are to be found in every country of the Archipelago In any manner civilized.
These latter come hither sometime in June, about ten or twelve sail, and bring. They take up houses all by one another, at the end of the town next the sea : and that end of the ' city is called the China camp, because there they always quarter, and bring their goods ashore thither to sell.
In this fleet come several mechanics, viz. The Arab settlers are more considerable firom their influence than their numbers. But as their business decreases, their gaming among themselves in- creases ; for a Chinese, if he is not at work, had as lieve be without victuals as without gaming ; and they are very dex- terous at it.
Even the Europeans go thither for their diversion; the English, Dutch, and Danes, will go to drink their hoc-ciu, at some China merchant's house who sells it: for they have not tippling-houses.
The Dutch and Spaniards are the only Euro- pean people who have colonized in the Indian Archipelago, or at least who now exist there as colonists.
The Dutch are permitted freely to pmrchase and hold lands, and in Java especially may fairly be considered as naturalized. Convivial gaiety seems to veign among them, and yet it is linked with a kind of suspicious reserve, which pervades all stations, and all companies, and is the consequence of an arbitrsry and jealous government.
I have heard many people assert, that they would not confide in their own brothers in this counUy. It is not that they have no opacity to learn, but the men have no inclination to teaeh.
This is done, by lay- ing aside the sword, pulling off the coat and wig, for most men wear wigs here, and substituting in the room of the last a little white night-cap, which is generally carried in the pocket for that purpose.

August 9th HMS Birmingham sinks German submarine U "The look-out of the questing Birmingham suddenly sighted, amidst the wraiths of mist, the hull of U, lying immobile and hove-to.
It would seem that no watch was being kept in the submarine, and, from the sounds of hammering which pierced the haze, the crew was apparently trying to remedy an engine breakdown.
Altering course, and making sure that U was within her turning circle, the Birmingham bore down, opening a rapid fire at close range.
The submarine slowly began to move through the water, but it was too late. The bows of the light cruiser caught her fair and square, cutting her completely in two.
The two severed parts of U appeared to float for a short time, possibly because the sheared plating was folded over at the point where her hull had been rammed, so partially sealing and making watertight the severed ends.
Only temporary repairs could be effected to the light cruiser, owing to the urgent demand for her services; for several months the Birmingham bore evidence of her success in the shape of two long scars, almost exactly symmetrical in length and pattern, which defaced her bows.
