(a) Toulouse is a large and ancient city, on the
right bank of the Garonne, where the canal of Langoe^
doc terminates. It had formerly an aniphitlieatre, m
capitol ftnd several other superb monuments; bat the
Visigoths completely destroyed them : no vestiges now
remain, except some ruins of the amphitheatre. An uu-
Yersity was founded here in 19S9) and several acade-
mies, amongst which that of the Jeux Floraux was dis-
tinguished as one of the most ancient literary societies
,in Europe. The Hotel de Ville is one of the most mag-
nificent in France. The mill of Basacle is much ad-
mired : there are sixteen milbtones put in motion *by
the waters of the Garonne, without the disagreeable
.npise which i% made ' in other mills ; each millstone
grinds from 4 to 6oo bushels of flour in a day. The pro-
menades of Toulouse are very pleasant antl extensive,
and tiie bridge is one of tlie finest in Europe. The pro-

The environs of Toulouse everT wbere preset charm*
log promenades. The esplanade consists of several
walks of unequal length, which lead to a circular enclo^
sure. Near this, the canal du Midi offers another pro«
menade equally pleasant, and very long. At a diort
distance from the place where the canal enters the Ga-
ronne, on a level with the river, another canal has been
cut, which rejoins the Garonne above the mill of
Basacle, and is intended for the boats which, bein|^
stopped by the dike, cannot proceed along the river.
These two canals, being bordered with several rows of
trees, form beautiful walks, which are terminated by
bridges, locks, and a view of the river. This town has
a royal court, an archbishop's see, a mint where pieces
mariiied N. are cohied, an academy, and a roval college,
formeriy a lycenm. It is the birthplace of Cujas, the
famous lawyer, and of Campistron, a traeic author.

lters, and Adffe, whence vessels are continually proceed-
ing to MarseiUes and Leghorn. Merchant-boats occupy
three days in going down the Garonne from Toulouse to

The fare for each person is 19 francs , but during die
sommer the Garonne is occasionallv so shallow as to pre-
vent the passage of boats. The government packel-boat,
