THE VILLAGE. Notwithstanding the modern fashion of placing a house in the centre of a park, at a distance from the haunts of men, or even the habitation of its own dependants and labourers, yet there are numerous objects belonging to a village with which the mansion must be connected, such as the church, the inn, the shop, the carpenter, the blacksmith, and other tradesmen, to which may here be added, the farming premises and the steward's house.
