PREFACE.

The title of this publication is chosen less for appropriateness than for originality. Poetical selections, as various in talent as in name, have been so multiplied of late, that we have been at no small pains to discover an appellation sufficiently distinctive for our purpose.

It is for this reason that we have a certain pleasant melancholy upon our brow, and not because we have banished our readers into the wild waste, far from the strife and turmoil of congregated thousands and the populous city; on the contrary, wherever man hath tabernacled or nature dwelt, there, with a joyous gladness have we followed the leadings of the Muse :—we have tracked her from sea to sea and from shore to shore; the Old and the New Worlds have alike furnished contributions; and wherever her gifts have been most prodigally dispensed, have we put in our sickle and gathered in the harvest :

TO OUR READERS
