INSIDE CANTON.

years, every traveller who has been to China has stopped short at Canton; and knowing, myself, of a score of descriptions more or less exact of the same localities, the same structures, the same entertainments, I have not had the courage to execute fresh variations upon such exhausted themes. Canton is, after all, only one corner of China, and if this narrative should be favourably received by the public, I will supply my apparent oversight, by describing, hereafter, some quarters less known than the famous City, and for that very reason more interesting.
