composed of trees and shrubs, divided by gravel-walks, and ornamented with seats and statues, allcarried forward with the cavalcade. On another occasion, having accidently discovered the ruins ofa castle of Charles XII. of Sweden, he immediately not only caused it to be repaired, but surrounded bygardens in the English taste. {Carres Baltic, &c.) 260. The most extensive seats laid out in the modern style, in the neighbourhood ofMoscow, are those of Gorinka, a seat of Count Alexy Razumowsky {Jig. 23.), andPetrowka, a seat of Petrowsky Razumowsky. The former is remarkable for its botanicalriches, and an immense extent of glass. The grounds are of great extent, but the sur-face flat, and the soil a dry sand. A natural forest of birch and wild cherry clothes thepark, and harmonises the artificial scenes.
