Khiva was at that time in the mouths of all who thought--who does not think so ?-that Russia's advanee in Central Asia means a big tight south of the Himalayas at no distant day. Captain Burnaby determined to reach i hiva, and the Russians determined he should not. He won; partly through his knowledge of Asiatic tongues, but chiefly through pluck.
