Bented in 1859 a scene of activity, industry, and riches which could not be surpassed elsewhere in China.The population probably then exceeded a million, including the suburbs.It lies north-west of Shanghai, the way passing through a continual range of villages and cities; the envrirons are highly cultivated, producing cotton, silk, rice, wheat, fruits, and vegetables.It was captured in 1860 by the rebels, and when retaken in 1865 was nevarly reduced to a heap of ruins.It is, however, rapidly reviving,as the loss of life was comparatively small.
The Chinese regard this as one of their richest and most beautiful cities, and have a saying, that to be happy on earth, one must be born in Suchau,live in Canton, and die in Liau-chan, for in tlie first are the handsomest people, in the second the most costly luxuries, and in the third the best Coffins.It has a high reputation for its buildings, the elegance of its tombs,the picturesque scenery of its waters and gardens, the politeness and intelligence of its inhabitauts, and the beauty of its women.Its manufactures of silk,linen,cotton, and work in iron, jvory, wood, horn, glass, lackered-ware, paper, and other artieles, are the chief sources of its wealth and prosperity; the kinds of silk goods produced here surpass in variety and rich- ness those woven in any other place.Vressels can proceed up to the city by several channels from the Yangtsz'kiang, but junks of large burden anchor at Shanghai, or Sungkiang; the whole conntry is so intersected by natural and artrificial.water- courses, that the people have hardly any need for roads and carts, but get about in barrows and sedans.Small steamers find their way to every large village at high tide.
