Transcript 20 EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. LXIX. View on the Island of St. Helena. This is selected from a number of drawings made at St. Helena, some of which, containing the town and shipping at anchor in the road, would, perhaps, be deemed more picturesque and interesting. The present engraving gives a preferable view of the interior landscape, and manner of enclosing the fields and plantations round the farm houses, to any of the other drawings. / LXX. Flying Fish, Exocoetus Evolans. This unfortunate inhabitant of the ocean was drawn of the natural size and colours, from one which alighted on the deck of the ship, in its flight from its watery foes, and pursued by the sea-fowl hovering over the shoal from which it separated. When the oceanic flying fish first emerges from the water, it is of the most beautiful silvery hues, softening the varied shades of purple and blue. LXXI. Medusa, or Portuguese Man-of-War. The latter is the usual appellation of this beautiful production of nature, which expands its light transparent sail at pleasure, and with thousands of its comrades scuds before a light breeze, and enlivens the surface of the ocean in the tropical latitudes.
