NOTICE.

This volume, intentionally miscellaneous for variety's sake, represents and is selected from a much larger mass of poems produced by me from time to time during some five-and-forty years. No arrangement is attempted, chronological or otherwise : these are my mingled Sibyllines, old and new, lively or severe, — the less likely to be wearisome to readers if not presented in too-large classes of similar character. The volume includes samples of every kind of my lyrical poetry, except the dramatic and satirical ; and it is commended to the favour of many old-time friends both hemispheres ; with the hope that it may be found acceptable also to the rising generation of their children,-“ virginibus pueris-que.

MARTIN F. TUPPER.

ALBURY, July, 1874.
