Mr. Bret Harte puts forth in the eleg

boofc contains forty-six "poems," eight
which comprise the "poems, in dialect, " t
so^famous through the length aud brea
of th* land. Of these it is sufficient to

by the old Scotch and English ballads to i
rough, wild, baif-barbarous civilization

i iLnr i ?? - - .it-? . -t-c
nearly as long a lease of life, When su
bits of quaint pathos as "Cicely/* "Jim" a

the world, the heart or humanity is not ve
likely ever to forget or outgrow them. T
youDg lady in the populur novel, who "hat

man of exquisite culture and refined taste,

bizarre shape- oftue verses, in"dialect m;
have concealed. "Her *Lettej,|'?? .?'The B

"Dickens in Camp" is perhaps the be
poem drawn forth by the great master

figured by false quantities and defeeth

"material" does not rhyme with "tell," nc
"talk" with "New York," nor "heiress

Whenever Mr. Harte step3 out of the tuc
nel, or the rauche or the raine, he become
slipshod and commonplace. We have sai
before that we think the verses in dialec
will live. It" will certainly be better for th
author's fame that the rest of the. voium
