DYNASTY OF THE KAJARS.
sula of India was governed by Tippoo Sultan, a
powerful and mighty prince; and his kingdom, which
was called Mysore, in beauty and organization like
the spring, was managed with perfect order and well-
regulated splendor. The English people fought
against him several times : at last, in the year of the
Messiah 1802, Tippoo Shah was slain, and all the
realms which had been under his government fell
into the hands of the English troops, so that they
obtained an increase of power and dignity beyond
all limits. At the present date, the provinces belong
ing to the English in Hindustan are more numerous
and extensive than the countries they possess in
Aroopa (i.e. Europe), and the island of Irelandah
(*Ireland), which was under their sway before these
events : therefore we may truly say they have added
kingdoms to their kingdom. Their Indian possessions
are divided into three Governments : the first, that
of Calcutta or Bengal, extends along the course of the
river Ganges ; the second, that of Madras, along the
Coromandel coast; the last is that of Bombay. The
English State has not introduced any innovations
into India, but remains occupied in the administra
tion and regulation of affairs: the maintenance ot
all descriptions of troops, and the expenses of naval
armaments for India, belong to the Compania, which
is settled in Ingilterrah. The Compania has entered
into partnership, alliance, and friendship with the
nation -j- » » * * under their own responsi-

in geographical knowledge.
