Side 147 - But here, — above, around, below, . On mountain or in glen, Nor tree, nor shrub, nor plant, nor flower, Nor aught of vegetative power, The weary eye may ken. For all is rocks at random thrown, Black waves, bare crags, and banks of stone...
Side 294 - We thought, as we hollowed his narrow bed, And smoothed down his lonely pillow, That the foe and the stranger would tread o'er his head, And we far away on the billow. Lightly they'll talk of the spirit that's gone, And o'er his cold ashes upbraid him ; But little he'll reck, if they let him sleep on In the grave where a Briton has laid him.

Side 17 - The double lights (which are seldom used, except where there is a necessity for a leading line as a guide for taking some channel or avoiding some danger) are generally exhibited from two towers, one of which is higher than the other. At the Calf of Man a striking variety has been introduced into the character of leading lights, by substituting for two fixed lights two lights which revolve in the same...
Side 515 - Trade, we find that the total number of wrecks and casualties, from all causes, on the coasts of the United Kingdom and in the surrounding seas, reported in 1865 is 1,656.
Side 29 - J inch between 8 am on one day and 3-26 am on the following day,* at once ordered his ship to be made as snug and tight as possible. The hurricane at the latter hour burst out with fearful violence, swept off the little island nearly the whole of the agricultural produce of the poor people, and caused lamentable havoc amongst the shipping and fishing-boats that happened to be out in those seas at the time. But the Porcupine weathered out nobly the storm ; and in lieu of being in a thousand pieces,...
Side 517 - Then follow 1,267 ships from 30 to 50 years old. Having passed the service of half a century, we come to the really old ships, — viz. 230 between 50 and 60 years old ; 102 from 60 to 70; 48 from 70 to 80; 14 from 80 to 90; 6 from 90 to 100; and 4, 101 years and upwards.
Side 42 - She righted instantly, but the poor fellow who was on the rope lost his hold, and was never seen again. The other held fast to the boat, and the crew once more got into her without accident. The communication with the vessel had not been broken, and the lifeboat again hauled up as near as possible to her. The captain and remaining two men then took to their boat, when the second wave capsized them. Through a fearful sea the lifeboat was hastily hauled ahead, and the three men were most fortunately...
