Not illustrated.1860 Excerpt: ... THE BRAVE OLD SHIP, THE ORIENT. Woe for the brave ship Orient! Woe for the old ship Orient! For in broad, broad light, and with land in sight, Where the waters bubbled white, One great sharp shriek! One shudder of affright!--And--down went the brave old ship, the Orient!

On the round waters wide, floated no thing beside, But we and the stranger sail: And a hazy sky, that threatened storm, Came coating the heaven so blue and warm, And ahead hung the portent of a gale; A black bank hanging there When the order came, to wear, Was remembered, ever after, ...
