hillock evidently thrown ups on purpose to be crowned with a clump, is artificial to a derro:e of discust: sore of the trees should therefore be planted on the sides, to take orr that appearance. he see enegient may be applied to clinips placed on the brow of a hill, to i + mint its sanoness: they will have les3 ostentation of jesien, if trey are in part carried moun oither declivity. The objection alreedy made to plantinc nany along such a brow, is on the saio principle: a single clump is less suspected of art; if it be an open one, there can be no finer situation for it, than just at the point of an ahunt ill, or on a pr00ntory into a lake or a river. It is in either beautiful torrination, distinct by its position, and enlivened by an expanse of al or of water, about and boyond it.
