But the full time came. England denied the exclusive pretensions of Spain, in virtue of first visitation, and of the Pope's donation, and affirmed the principle that discovery and prescription, unless aecom panied by possession, were of no avail. Speedily the bold naviga tors of England, and France, and Holland, pressed their vessels more closely to the long stretches of sandy shore, more closely to the wood ed hills and the open bays, more closely to the rocky bluffs that for slumbering ages had known no music but the grand anthem of praise which the sea had rolled up to Him who had set its bounds. Swept onward by the spirit of discovery which had risen to the occasion demanding its ofiice, the coast line was passed, and the. Bays and the rivers running to the sea yielded their secrets. The great barrier to progress was broken down; the New World was opened to the em brace of people of all nations to be welded together in the furnace of common interests.
