SOUTHERN STEREOSCOPIC VIEWS.

BONAVENTURE.

Bonaventure whose melancholy beauty challenges comparison with any spot of similar magnitude in the world, is situated about four miles from Savannah, Ga.

It was settled in 1760 by Col. John Mulryne, and in 1761 became the property of the Tattnall family; in 1847 it was converted into cemetery and many specimens of sepultural architecture, which time has invested with hallowed remembrances.

Numerous lofty oaks lend their grateful shade to the last resting places of the dead, and the character of the foliage presents a unique and almost indescribable appearance, draped as it is with weeping festoons of moss, whose luxuriant growth makes it shade impenetrable to the sun's rays. Nature and the wise neglect of man have made it a peerless combination of the sublime and picturesque. Here lie the remains of Commodore Tattnall and General Clinch.
