eration of proportion, between the object, and the spot it is intended to occupy; , and if the desired effect can be atuained by a single tree, the si: plicity of the means recomends it. Sometimes it will be preferred merely for variety; and may be used to mark one point in a scono in thich two or three points are already distinguis'ed by clu ips.

it may occasioially be applied to cost of the p?rposes for which clumps are used; may be an independant object; nay interrint a continued line, or decorate an extent of space: there is but oe eifect resiltin Troll clumps which may not to a certain decree be produced by sin le trees, a niiber of the will never unite into one larų:0 liass; but more distant relations may be observed betwen them. Scattered about a lawn, they cast it into an acrecable shape; ani to produce that shape, each rust be placed with an attention to the rest; they way stand ii pulticular directions, and collectively forri a l'eeuble ricures; or between several stragcling trees liitle {lades may open, full of varity and beauty. Tie lines they trace are fainter than those which larger plutations describe but then their forlis are their own; they are therefo e absolutely free from all appearance of art; any disposition or then, if it be but irreEular, is sure to be natural.

The situations of single trees is the first consideration; ani dirierences in the distances between them their createst variety. in Siape, they adiit of no choice but that wic their species arfords; {reatress often, beauty often, sometiiies were solidity, and now and then peculiarity alone, recol. ends then. Their situations will úlso frequently deterine the species: if they are placed before a continued line or wood, only to break it, they should cornionly be similar to the trees in that wood; they will else love their connexion, and not affect the otline which they are intended to valy; but if they are cosicned to be independent objects, they are as such hore discernible when ristinguished both in their shapes and their greens iron any plantations about then. Aitor all, the choice, especially in lurte scenes, is luc': confined to the trees on the spot; younc clumps from the first have some, and soon produce a considerable effect; but a young single tree for iany years has none at all; and it is often kore judicious to preserve one already crowing, thouch not exactly such as Licht be wished, either in itself, or in its situation, than to plant in its stoad anoth I, will lay boy iner object, and better placed, in a distu.lü futurity.
