This is strictly a marine view, and will be best appreciated by those who have been to sea or in sight of the ocean during moonlight. The lash of the waves on the rock-ribbed shore is treated with splendid effect, and from the point of contrast to the horizon an immense distance is successfully indicated. A ship of the line and a steamer typify the two methods of ocean travel; and to endow the majesty of the scene with life enough to relieve it of a feeling of desolation, a group of fishers are bivouacked under the shadow of the rocks. The charming effect of the moonlight upon the threatening clouds will commend itself to the eye of every admirer of nature. [P. 21.]
