In 
America, 
therefore, 
although 
there 
has 
been 
lack 
of 
clever 
versiflers, 
HOT 
of 
HIGH

ideas 
current 
in 
the

the 
country has produced nothing of

value descriptive of 
the peculiar associations con- 
nected

its 
scenery. 
Among

original 
Poet ry 
has, 
but the riches of the mine 
deed, been discovered;

the American 
climate with 
the

but 
they are of
