MOUNT ROYAL:, a very picturesque mountain on the outskirts of Montreal, whose most elevated point at the furthest extremity is about 750 feet above the level of the river; it gains a moderate height at first by a gradual ascent, which lowers again towards the middle, from thence it assumes a broken and uneven form until it is terminated by a sudden elevation in shape of a cone. The slopes on the lower part are well cultivated, but the upper part is mostly covered with wood. The summit, to which there is a good road of very easy ascent, commands a grand and most magnificent prospect, including every variety that can embellish a landscape; the noble river St. Lawrence, moving in all its majesty, is seen in many of the windings, to an immense distance; on the south side the view is bounded by the long range of mountains in the State of New York that is gradually lost in the serial perspective. The base of the mountain, almost all around,. is adorned with many elegant villas and pleasure grounds. The choicest orchards of the province are also situated around it, the fruit being of great variety and very abundant and also of the most delicious flavor. Mount Royal Cemetery (Protestant) lies in a picturesque position on the St. Laurent side of the mountain, and the Roman Catholic Cemetery on the Cote des Neiges side, near where the road crosses the spur of the mountain that overlooks the city.
