Excerpt from The Republican Compiler: Comprising a Series of Scientific, Descriptive, Narrative, Popular, Biographical, Epistolary, and Miscellaneous Pieces, in Prose and Verse; Selected From the Best American Writers, and Designed for the Use of Schools

In the poetical department, the materials to which rem course has been had, are necessaril y limited. The Amer ican muse has not yet furnished the admirers of the more sublime flights of imagination, with many opportunities. Of indulging their tastes From the few whom she has led to the elevated and flowery regions of Parnassus, a selection has been made, embracing as large a ran e as the paucity of materials would admit; and no litt e pains have been taken, to render the introduction of the bard's labours, as eonsistent with the nature of the present work both with regard to useful instru ction, and pleasing reere ation, as the art of poesy will permit.
