De specum horrisono, Smellen vulgariter dicto.


CAP. IIII.


                                        VISVM est superiore capite, glaciei tantam inesse fortitudinem,
                                        vt equestres, pedestresque bellatrices turmas facilime
                                        sufferre possit. Iamque intuendum erit, specum subterraneam
                                        fore prope littoralem vrbem, Viburgum appellatam,
                                        eisdem Moschoviticis terris plurimum vicinam: quæ eius
Sonus vehementissimus.                                         secretæ virtutis est, vt animali vivo in ipsam projecto, tam
                                        horribilis sonus excitatur, que sua excellentia aures prope
                                        positorum suffocat, ne audire, aut loqui, vel stare possint:
Opificium naturæ mirabile.                                         qua virtute multo plures, quam vehementissima bombarda
interimit, vel debilitat in momento. Sed neque hoc naturæ opificium videntur esse otiosum.
Ingruente enim hostilitate præfectus terræ jubet omnium aures concludi cera,
Hostes debilitantur horibili sono. cellariisque, ac antris abscondi victuros: & demum se muniens, animal aliquod
vel hasta, vel fune præcipitat in os speluncæ: vnde tam horridus excitatur sonus,
vt hostes obsidentes in circuitu, quasi mactanda pecora collabantur, lapsique (si incolis
visum est ) longo intervallo remaneant spoliandi. Sed nulla voluptas vltionis
Inimici fugatur. sumendæ victoribus inest, quando naturæ potentia tam fortiter opprimi videntur
inimici: qui mox vt sensum ceperint, non præliandi, sed fugiendi tempus assumunt,
ne sono iterum excitato, tandem moriantur, vel mortifera ægritudine
contracta, paululum etiam fugientes supervivant. Quo
casu evenit, vt qui armis, & viribus a bellico furore
reprimi non poterunt. solo terrore
mugientis naturæ tabescunt,
pristinum vitæ robur
tarde, vel nunquam recuperantes.
De eodem
