PART OF THE BLACK TOWN, MADRAS.

The Black Town (so called from being principally the residence of the native merchants) is distant rather less than half a mile north from Fort St. George, and separated by the Esplanade; along which runs the China Bazaar, or market for Chinese, India, and European merchandize. In the town the Armenians have erected a church, which appears in the distance, and to the left of it are seen the minarets of a handsome Mosque, built by Mahommed Ali, Nabob of the Carnatic.
