THE MONGHA TEMPLEThis is a historically interesting spot, as here the first treaty between the United States and China was signed on  the 3rd of July 1844; and also here in 1849 the head and  arm of Governor Amaral were hidden in ashes, after he had  been massacred at the Barrier by the Chinese. This temple  H at a little distance along the lane that is at the back of  the New Protestant Cemetery. It has a blank wall at each side. Entering the garden, one finds oneself in a large open space, behind which are the several buildings composing the temple. In these buildings are to be found the Three  Precious Buddhas, a goddess riding on an elephant and other idols. Chinese frescoes, some in relief, adorn the place:one of them representing The Fat Buddha with a pack of boys playing with and teasing him, though such a god, the personification of good-nature, is evidently too good-natured to be teased. A garden is attached to the place, and in it there is some curiously ornamented tiling, the figures, &c., being in high relief; but which is, however in rather a dilapidated condition.”
