DISCOURSE,

DELIVERED IN THE

NEW-YORK CITY HOSPITAL,

ON LORD'S DAY MORNING,

MAY 23, 1824.

INTENDED AS A MORAL IMPROVEMENT OF THE CALAMITY OCCASIONED

BY THE BORSTING OF THE BOILER OF THE STEAM-BOAT ÆTNA;

BY WHICH SEVERAL LIVES WERE LOST. AND, OUT OF

NINE PERSONS BROUGHT TO THIS HOSPITAL,

THREE ONLY SURVIVED.

TO WHICH IS ADDED, SOME ACCOUNT OF THEIR LAST HOURS.

BY JOHN STANFORD, A. M.

The evils that beset our path,

Who can prevent or cure ?
We stand upon the brink of death,

When most we seem secure.
If we to-day sweet peace possess,

It soon may be withdrawn ;
Some change may plunge us in distress,

Before to-morrow's dawn. COWPER.
