if you happen to examine a Map of the area, you can find, within the left-hand higher nook of the japanese Hemisphere, Islands mendacity within the sea. they're England and Scotland, and eire. England and Scotland shape the larger a part of those Islands. eire is the subsequent in dimension. The little neighbouring islands, that are so small upon the Map as to be mere dots, are mainly little bits of Scotland,—broken off, I dare say, during an outstanding size of time, through the facility of the stressed water.

In the outdated days, a protracted, lengthy whereas in the past, prior to Our Saviour was once born in the world and lay asleep in a manger, those Islands have been within the comparable position, and the stormy sea roared around them, simply because it roars now. however the sea used to be no longer alive, then, with nice ships and courageous sailors, crusing to and from all elements of the area.

The foaming waves dashed opposed to their cliffs, and the grim winds blew over their forests; however the winds and waves introduced no adventurers to land upon the Islands, and the savage Islanders knew not anything of the remainder of the area, and the remainder of the realm knew not anything of them.

It is meant that the Phœnicians, who have been an historical humans, recognized for wearing on exchange, got here in ships to those Islands, and located that they produced tin and lead; either very beneficial issues, as you recognize, and either produced to this very hour upon the sea-coast. the main celebrated tin mines in Cornwall are, nonetheless, just about the ocean. one among them, which i've got obvious, is so on the subject of it that it really is hollowed out beneath the sea; and the miners say, that during stormy climate, after they are at paintings down in that deep position, they could listen the noise of the waves thundering above their heads.
