P. 379, No. ccc.Tithonus is a noble variation on Juvenal's noble line in the roth Satire, where, enumerating the things which a wise man may fitly pray for, he includes among these the mind

and temper,

Qui spatium vitæ extremum inter munera ponat
Naturæ :'

words which, grand as they are, reappear in still grander form, even as they are brought into a more intimate connection with this poem in Dryden's translation,

And count it nature's privilege to die.'

P. 387, No. cccvi.-Few readers of this and other choice specimens of American poetry—some of which have now for the first time found their way into any English anthology-but will share the admiration which I cannot refuse to express for many among them. It is true that they are not always racy of the soil, that sometimes they only do what has been as well done, though scarcely better, in the old land ; but whether we regard the perfect mechanism of the verse, the purity and harmony of the diction, the gracious thoughts so gracefully embodied, these poems, by Whittier, by Bryant, by Holmes, by Emerson, and by others, do, so far as they reach, leave nothing to be desired.
