sun, beaming on the blue and yellow mountains' sides, produces effects of light and shade the most charming that ever a son of Apelles imagined. In approaching the head of Newland-hawse, on the left, a mountain of purple-coloured rock presents a thousand gaping chasms, excavated by torrents that fall into a bason, formed in the bosom of the mountain, and from thence precipitating themselves over a wall of rock, become a brook below. In front is a vast rocky mountain, the barrier of the dell, that opposes itself to all further access. Among the variety of water-falls that distinguish this awful boundary of rock, one catches the eye at a distance that exceeds the boasted Lowdore, in height of rock and unity of fall, whilst the beholder is free of all anxiety of mind in the approach. Not one pebble or grain of sand offends; but all is nature, in her sweetest trim of verdant turf, spread out to please her votaries.
Whoever would enjoy, with ease and safety Alpine views, and pastoral scenes in the sublime style, may have them in this morning ride.
