A moonlight picture. Two vessels are seen; the one enveloped in flames, and from which the crew are making their escape, while the other is dismantled, and making signals of distress. A ship is in the distance, bearing down to their relief; while near by are seen figures clinging to the floating spars, and anxiously watching the destruction of their ship. The effects of the moonlight and firelight are finely contrasted and the whole scene is rendered with great spirit and effect. [P. 10.] 50 x 26. [P. 18.]
