In May 1834, when the Danube was unusually full, a small steamer, the Argo, made this voyage once ;* but the habitual shallowness of the river requires the general substitution of a row-boat for a steam-vessel between Moldova and Scala Cladova. On the occasion above referred to, the Argo reached Orschova in six, and Scala Cladova in eight and a quarter hours from Moldova ; a row-boat sometimes requires twenty-two hours, as above calculated.

* The Pannonia has likewise effected it since these notes were penned.

A steamer goes every third day, during the season, from Presburg to Pest; another plies every twelfth day from Pest to Moldova, communicating, by means of a row-boat, with a third that proceeds from Scala Cladova to Galatz. In the three steamers the engineers are English, and the captains and conducteurs generally talk either English or French, sometimes both.
