Down, down, down, it plunges, plowing deep furrows, shattering trees, loosening other rocks, making the hills and the clouds reverberate with its thunder, and lashing the calm waters into fury as it dives down to their profoundest depths. At other points the mountain range, or at least spurs of it, approach the sea-line and jut out into the very ocean. At such places the waves of old ocean, in angry controversy, have been battling against the granite bulwark of the mountain side through long ages in vain. It is a sublime scene, where these two symbols of the Almighty’s power and eternity-“ the everlasting hills” and the majestic ocean-are brought together and display their wondrous signilicance in conflict with each other. One of these last scenes, taken by Mr. Hart upon the very spot, has been transferred to steel by our artist, and is herewith presented to the reader. It is true to life. See the stunted and scattered white birches that, contending for life upon the rocky ridges, make the dreary barrenness of the bald rocks and naked crests still more oppressive to the mind. See the wild sea-gull spreading his white wings and sporting amid the blasts of the gale. See the crested waves: the whole ocean seems in a ferment. It swells upward; it is above the level of our feet. It would be impossible for a boat to pass through the surf out upon the ocean. Do not be deceived by the deceitful calmness of the little strip of inland water inside of the crested wave: As the mountain wave rises, thunders its approach, and rolls up its crest for the attack, the sleeping water along the shore forgets its calmness, joins in the onset, and adds its own murrnurs to the thundering war-cry. No one can conceive of the fury of the ocean nor the might of its power, unless he has stood beneath the rock-girt bank in the midst of a storm, and witnessed the rush and the war of the waves. Such a scene, witnessed once in our early manhood, has left its vivid impression on our memory and imagination. Even the grandeur of Niagara has never surpassed it.
