View of the Lake See-hoo, and tower of the thundering winds, taken from the Vale of Tombs. This lake, on the borders of which stands the wealthy and extensive city of Hang-choo-foo, with the surrounding scenery, is accounted one of the grandest, as well as most beautiful, spots in all China. The Lui-fung-la, or tower of the thundering Avinds, standing on the point of a promontory jetting into the lake, forms a bold object. It is said to have been built in the time of the philosopher Confucius, who Kved three centuries before the Christian sera. In the Vale of Tombs the variety of monuments is almost infinite. Abundance of naked coffins lie scattered upon the ground ; and the sides of the hills that rise from the vale are thickly set with groups of sarcophagi , in the shape of small houses, arranged in such a manner as to look like so many Lilliputian villages.
