Ihe so-called all- ship in the West, which tronomers claim is the star Alpha Orlanlg is attracting considerable attention, the following account of a phenomenon, tak en from a History of Connecticut pub lished in London, England, in 17S1, may interest some of your readers. About 1640 the people of New Haven fitted out a ship and sent her richly laden to Eoglana to procure a patent for the colony and a charter for the city. Aicer tne snip aaa Deen at sea some weeks there happened in New England a violent storm which induced the peo ple or Jew Haven to fast and pray, and enquire ot tue Lord whether their ship was in that storm or not. This was a real fast, for the people neither are nor drank from sunrise till sunset. At 5 o'clock in the afternoon thev canin out of meeting, walking softly and sadly nomewaras. on a sudden the air tlmr, dered, and the lightnings shone abroad They looked up towards the heavens, when they beheld their ship under fnll sail, and the sailors steering her from west to east, bhe came over the meeting ... wnere they had fasted and prayed, and then was met by an euroclydon. which rent the sails, and overset the ship ; in a lew moments she fell down near the weather cock on the steeple, and instant ly vanished. The people all returned to the meeting, where the minister pave thanks to God for answering the desires of bis servants, and for giving them an infallible token of the loss of their ship and charter.
