TWO GUN SALUTE FROM FORT REGENT AS THE QUEEN DEPARTS THE ISLAND

Early next morning the royal squadron weighed anchor and returned to England. The effect of scenery is so much influenced by the atmosphere, that a short description of it’s effects on that of the Island ought not to be omitted in this Work.

Surrounded by the sea, Jersey is almost every night shrouded in a mist, which the rising sun in dissolving tinges with prismatic colours, From the eastern coast is best seen the splendour of sunrise-the cold, white light of dawn silently creeping up the dark and starry sky, extinguishing their pale fires amid its rosy and increasing light, – lines of golden brightness fret the clouds; the sun is near – is up; a stream of light dances over the pale blue sea and sparkles on the wet and pebbly beach: as the mists disappear each object becomes more defined, and every thing shines in dewy freshness.
