lished. The Imperial canal of China is
over 1,000 miles long. In Ihe year 1681

erranean; it length is 14S miles, it has
more than 100 locks, and about fifty
aqueducts, and in its highest part it is
no less than COO feet above the sea; it is
navigable for ves.-cls of upward of 100
tons. The largest ship canal in Eu
rope is the Great North Holland canal,
completed in 1825. It is 125 feet wide at

Washington has never appeared to
greater advantage than it has during the
lato spring, and the many strangers
who have been there have gone away de
lighted with the Federal city. A very
intelligent Massachusetts gentleman,
wrote: The view from the Capitol
looking westward is a picture that I
never shall forget waking or sleeping
it stands out distinct and clear before
my eyes. It is indeed beautiful. The !
city lies at the spectator's feet, and
Pennsylvania avenue stretches out be-1
fore him, even its mean-looking houses j
acquiring a sort of beauty as being com-1
pooect parts of the vista. Looking
directly westward, the mall spread j
out before him, with the quaint
but picturesque buildings of the Smith
sonian Institute, the National Museum,
and the Department of Agriculture re
lieving the monotony of its once desert
waste. Afar off the huge white obelisk
of the Washington monument rises, its
top swarming with workmen, and dc
tigned to become a noble and com
manding structure. When the monu
ment is finished, and the grounds of the
mall are laid out as a public park, and
the railroad is banished, itwill be un
turpasscd by anv view in any other
city in Christendom.
