Broughton Bay
Strait of Corea
The Yellow Sea
the Sea of Japan.

Corea, a kingdom on the E. coast of Asia, bounded N. by Mantchooria, N. E. by the Russian Amoor country, E. by the sea of Japan, S. by the strait of Corea, and W. by the Yellow sea and the Chinese province of Liaotung, and lying between lat. 34° 25' and 43° N., and lon. 124° and 130° 30' E.; area, 90,000 sq. m. The population has been variously estimated from 8,000,000 to 20,000,000. No accounts of the geography or constitution of the Corean kingdom are in existence, and only the barest notion of the internal configuration of the country has been arrived at. It comprises a peninsula 400 m. long and 140 m. wide, most of the adjacent islands, especially numerous on the W. coast, and a part of the main continent. Its length from N. to S. is 660 m. It is separated from Mantchooria by the Shangpeshan mountains, and the Chimtai range follows the E. coast along its whole extent. Nearly all the principal rivers run W. down the larger watershed which slopes from the Chimtai to the Yellow sea. The largest is the Yalu in the northwest, which is deep and rapid, and navigable for large ships 22 miles.

South of this are the Tatong and the Han. On other watersheds are the Falu, which flows from the Chimtai into the strait of Corea, and the Tumen, a large river in the northeast which flows into the sea of Japan. The coast, which is generally high and rocky, is particularly abrupt on the E. side. On this side there are few islands except in lat. 39° 45' N., in Broughton's bay. In the strait of Corea there are many islands, and between lat. 34° and 35° N., on the W. side, are the Amherst isles and the Corean archipelago. These coast islands are seldom more than three or four miles long, are rocky and high, but generally inhabited. The island of Quelpaert, 60 m. S. of the peninsula, is about 60 m. in circumference, and on it is Mt. Auckland, 6,558 ft. high. The climate is cold, especially in the north, where the Tumen is frozen for six months in the year, and barley is the only grain which can be raised. In the southwest, where the climate is more temperate, the soil is more fertile than elsewhere. The country produces wheat, rice, millet, cotton, hemp, ginseng, and fruits. Tobacco and cotton are cultivated to some extent. The orange, citron, hazlenut, pear, chestnut, peach, mulberry, and wild grape are common.
