Oh sick at heart grew Polydore,
Some words he mutter'd o'er the latch,
“Why shrink'st thou thus, good comrade, now
“But come thou forth, we’ll visit now
“The wind is loud, but clasp my arrh–
Soon had they reach'd a wilderness
Then turning round, his ghastly face
“Now living things are far remote,
Brothers we were, false Polydore,
Brothers in life, and we in death
“Behold the elm, behold the rope,
The eyes of Polydore grew dim,
All vanish’d now the cursed elm,

WHILE far, dear friend, your parting steps recede,
Yet sure too soon, thou brother of my heart,

Lachesis Lapponica; or, a Tour in Lapland. Now first published from the original Manuscript Journal of the celebrated Linnaeus; by James Edward Smith, M. D. F. R. S. &c., President of the Linnaean Society, 2 vols. 8vo, London. 1811.
THE name of Lapland first occurs in the writings of SaxoGrammaticus, who composed his History of Denmark about the close of the twelfth century. At the distance of three hundred years, it is again slightly mentioned by Eric of Upsala; and the meagre description of the country by Ziegler is supposed to have first made it known beyond the limits of northern Europe.* * Charles the Ninth, King of Swedland' (to use the language of Scheffer, as rendered by his Oxonian translator,) “in the year
* There is a brief description of Lapland, in that great mass of obscure his. tory, entitled, Hispania Illustrata, published at Frankfort in 1603. At p. 1314 of the 2d vol. there is a pathetic piece, called Deploratio Gentis Lappiane, which is followed up by a short Lappie Descriptio, -both addressed to the Pope, by a learned person who takes the name of Damianus à Goes, under date of 1540. Mention is here made of their poverty, their rein-deer, and their incantations; upon which last subject there is the following edifying intelligence. “Incantamentis sic pollent ut naves in medio cursu retineant, sic ut nulla vi ventorum amoveri possint. Quod malum solo virginum excremento, foris navium ac transtris illitis, curatur ; a quo, ut ab incolis accepi, spiritus illi natura abhorrent.”
