THE FOLLOWING SELECTION from the

Minor pieces of the principal MODERN POETS, has been

made with a view to exhibit in one volume some of the best

specimens of their Genius.

To accomplish this object the

Editor has in general made choice of those pieces which seem to

hare been most impressed with the mark of popular favour.

The accompanying little Essay on their respective merits, has

been inserted, not because it accords altogether with his own

sentiments, but on account of the general beauty of its style and the talent displayed in it, and also, because he conceives it

to be the most appropriate introduction which could be found

for a work of this class.-It first appeared in one of our daily

journals.
