ustly observed by a celebrated writer on the embellish-ments of gardens^ that they are usually uninteresting from wantof variety^ and insipid^ as they induce no sentiment beyondwhat springs from rural beauty, although their object is, to fillthe mind by varied incident and contrasting subject. To thistruth, however, many of our best gardens are tasteful exceptions;and fashion is again adopting the aid of architecture and sculp-ture towards multiplying the means by which a judicious changeand interest are created, which she once abandoned; becausemere eye-traps and grotesque absurdities were substituted forworks of real art, and intrusively thrust upon the observer atevery turn and alley of the plantations. The annexed design is intended not merely as an embel-lishment, but as the model for some monument of veneration,esteem, or respect for departed worth or friendship.
