I want to show you the scenery and inhabitants of Hong-Kong, but of either I have little to say. Its scenery is composed of barren rocks, deep ravines, and mountain-torrents, but presents few characters of a very picturesque description. Of its inhabitants none were seen but some poor and weather-beaten fishermen, spreading their nets, and drying the produce of their toils on the rocks which supported their miserable mud-huts. number of its population. Patches of rice, small plantations of yams, and a little buck-wheat, which are remnants of the old society.
