VIEW IN THE FORT OF TRITCHINOPOLY.

The Fort of Tritchinopoly belongs to the Nabob of the Carnatic, but is garrisoned by the English. Its walls are nearly four miles in extent, and surrounded by a broad and deep ditch. There are several tanks here of excellent water; the one seen in this view is principally used by the Hindoos for ablution, where persons of all ages and of different sexes assemble together to perform that religious ceremony.
