  <p>Below us is the far-famed city of Rome, the most celebrated city in the whole world. In old times the Romans were the conquerors of the world, and their city was the chief capital of their empire. When it was most flourishing its walls extended for 13 miles round, and its population amounted to 2,000,000. It has now dwindled down very much, and, while still the capital of Italy, its population only amounts to 250,000, about the same number as dwell at Leeds; and four of the seven hills upon which it was built,and which were thickly crowded with houses, are now occupied only by vineyards and gardens.</p>
