Whatever may be the ultimate fate of this colony, it must be allowed, to quote the candid admission of a writer in the United Service Journal, that "at present we are not occupying a very proud position in Arabia"--though considering the means by which we obtained our footing in that peninsula, our position is perhaps as good as we deserve.

Nicholas Gerbelius, that good old man, was so much ravished with a few Greek authors restored to light, with hope and desire of enjoying the rest, that he exclaims forthwith, Arabibus atque Indis omnibus erimus ditiores, we shall be richer than all the Arabic or Indian princes; of such esteem they were with him, incomparable worth and value.

The cold desert of the tribe of Jel, was probably in the eastern part of Soongria; perhaps the Karang desert, north from Turfan and the Alak mountains.--E. This is supposed to be the same place with Aramuth in other Journals; and to be named Oramchi in the Jesuits map--Astl.
