informed liim of his adventures, imagined he had lost his
wits; whereupon, taking his oxen and sheep out of his
pockets, after great astonishment, he clearly convinced
the crew of his veracity.

The Storm.
Hark! the wind's loud sullen roar,
Behold the huge and foaming wave;
How happy we, who, safe on shore,
Can view, yet all its horrors brave.
See yonder sail, that bending low ,
Appears each moment to be lost,
This moment scarce a speck can show,
The next is high on billows tost.
How will your little bark withstand
These angry winds, this raging sea;
But trifling aid can human hand
Aflford thee in this misery.
Yet shall thy trembling inmates' cry
Be heard in this sad threat'ning hour;
Nor shall the elements defy
The strength of God's superior power.
