The ax has often, in one day, laid waite the growth of feveral ages; and thoufands of venerable plants, whole woods of them, have been fwept away, to make room for a little grafs, and a few American weeds. Our vir tuofi have fcarcely left an acre of fhade, nor three trees growmg in a line, from the Land's-end to the Tweed and if their humour for devafiation continues to rage much longer, there will not be a forefi-tree left {landing.
