Shie-tsih, gods of the land and grain among the Chinese. There is an altar to these deities in Pekin, which is square, and only ten feet high, being divided into two stories of only five feet each. Each side of the square measures fifty- eight feet. The emperor alone has the privilege of worshipping at this altar, and it is not lawful to erect a similar one in any part of the empire for the use of any of his subjects.
