The prospect, in its general outline, commands a close-built, highpiled city, stretching itself out beneath in a form, which, to a romantic imagination, may be supposed to represent that of a dragon; now, a noble arm of the sea, with its rocks, isles, distant shores, and a boundary of mountains; and now, a fair and fertile champaign country, varied with hill, dale,...
