From those conbinations, the acroerents botwen particular tints ray be nown. A licht creen Lay be next either to a yellow or a b.omn creon and a brown to a dark freen; all in considerablo Cilentities; and a little rin of dark creen nay bopder on a red or a li-nt creon. Further ol servations will shew, that the yellow and the white crons conngot oasily but that larce quantities of the licht, the yellon, or the white eroons, do not nix well with a large quantity also of the dar: croon; and that to for.i a pleasing mass, eithor the dark crren ziust be reduced to a neer edging, or a brown, or an intannediate eroon must be interposed: that the red the brown, and the internediate creens a[10o acon thoroolyes; and that either of them way be joined to any other tint; but that the red croen will boar a larger quantity of the licht then of the dar creen near it; nor does it see.. so proper a mixture with the white cicon as with the rest.

In massing the e tints, an attention wust be constantly kept us to their forms, that they do not lie in larte stripes one beyond another; but that either thoy be quite interrincled, or, which is cendrally nore pleasing, that considerable pieces of differont tints, cach a beautiful ficure, be, in different proportions, placed near tocether. xactness in the shapes must not be attoupted, for it cannot be preserved; but if the creat outlinos be well crawn, little variations, afterwards occasioned by the crowth of the plants, will not spoil ther.

A small thicket is. Eenerally cost acrceable, whon it is one fino mass of well-nixed treens: that mass cives to the whole a unity, which can by no neans be so perfectly expressed. When more than one is necessary for the extent of the plantation, still 11 tboy al'o not too much contrasted, if the cradations ilou on to another aro besy, the unity is not broken by the variety.

while the union of tints is productive of plousine ordeuts, strone effects may, on the other hand, bo soneti os, produced by their isarrcenents. Opposites, such, i'or instance, as the car's an licht creens in large quantities close to cthor, brea's to pieces the surface upon which they neet; and an outline which cannot be sufficiently varied in forn, may be in appearane, by the wanaouont or its shados.

-VCIY Opposition of tints is a break in a continued line: the depth of rocesses may be deepened by darkening the cloons as thoy rutire. A tree which stands out from a plantation ay be separated by its tint as much as by its position. The appearance of solidity or airinous in plants depends not solely on the thiciness Or t'inness, but partly on tho colour of the leaves. Cluips at a distance !be l'endored more or locs distinct by their Erzens; and the fine eiicct of a dark crcon tree, or rope or treos, with nothing behind it but t'i slendor of a bi'ning, or the flow of an evening s'y, cainot be un nown to any 60 WES evor delichted with a picture or Claude, or with the lol'e beautirul oricinals in nature.

Another cfieot attainable by to aid of the diffe. ont tints, is founded on the first principles oi per soctivo. Cojocts Crow fuint as they rotire froi the eye; & detached clump, Or a sinile trcs of the lichter creens, will, thérorore, 8001: furthor of? than one equidistant of a darker hue; and a rocular cradation from one tint to another will alter the apparent loncth of a continued plantation, accordinr as the dark or tho licht creens bocin t'o cradation. In a straicht line this is obvious; in a brokon one, the fallacy in the appearance i3 seldon detected, only because the real ex.ent is conorally un nown; but ex
