The name of Organci is easily recognized In the
town of Urgenz in
Kheucaresm; which is named Dschordschanio by Abulfeda, and Korkang by
the Persians. But there were two towns of this name, the greater and
the lesser Urgenz, or Old and New Urgenz. The Old or Greater Urgenz
was situated near to where the Gihon discharges its waters into lake
Aral; the New or Ixsser Urgenz is to be found near Chiwa, or Chiva, on
 Oltrarra is properly called Otrar, and also Farab,
which latter name is
to be found in Abulfeda. It is situate on the river Sihon or Sire. The
Chinese, who cannot pronounce the letter r, call it Uotala.—Forst.
 Armalecco is the name of a small town called Almalig,
to Nassir Ettusi and Ulug-beg, is in Turkestan. From the life of
Timur Khan, by Shersfeddin Ali, it appears that Almalig is situate
between the town of Taschkent and the river Irtiah, in the country of
the Gete, and on the banks of the river Ab-eile, which discharges
itself into the Sihon, or Sirr-Daria.—Forst.
 Came-xu is in all probability the name of Khame
or Khami with the
addition of xu, instead of Tcheou or Tsheu, which, in the Chinese
language, signifies a town of the second rank.—Forst.
 Obviously the Kara-Moran, called Hoang-ho by the
Chinese, or the Yellow
 Cassai, or Kaway, seems to be the place called
Kissen, on a lake of
that name, near the northernmost winding branch of the Kara-moran, in
Lat. 41.50’. N. long. 107 deg.. 40’. E.—Forst.
 It is curious to notice, in the writings, of
commercial geographer, and in the travels of Marco Polo, the peculiar
advantages in commerce enjoyed by the Chinese at so early a period, of
being paid in sliver for their commodities and manufactures. This
practice, which prevailed so early as 1260, the era of the elder
Polos, and even, in 851, when the Mahometan travellers visited
Southern China, still continues in 1810.—E.
 The value of the silver somno is nowhere
mentioned; but it is of no
importance, as it would not enable us to institute any comparison of
 Gamalecco is undoubtedly Cambalu, Cambalig, or
Pekin; exactly as Gattay is substituted for Katay Kathay, or Cathay.
