The wind then sprang up with increased violence, but from the opposite N.w. direction, and, after enduring for a period, the force of the wind abated, and the storm passed away. The advantages resulting from a knowledge of this law of storms, have been exceedingly great, as, by attending to certain indications, the mariner is enabled to ascertain his position relative to the centre of the storm, and to adopt the course which will most readily bear him beyond its influence. The tendency of all matter, whether solid or fluid, to assume when disturbed a series of alternating movements, known by the terms vibrations, undulations, leaves, or oscillations, might have claimed our attention in this chapter; but it is thought advisable, for the purpose of avoiding repetition, to reserve the consideration of these important forms of motion, until the laws of the propagation of motion in fluid bodies, and the phenomena of sound, light, and heat, come to be considered. Before this portion of our subject is closed, it becomes, however, necessary to examine an hypothesis, which is sanctioned by the authority of some of the most talented philosophers of the present age.
