se may be mentioned Pentucket, with its memories of old-time Indian raids along the Merrimac; Cassandra Southwick, a tale of the Quaker persecutions; The Angels of Buena Vista, an echo from the battle-fields of the Mexican War; The Garrison of Cape Ann, which tells how the New Englander of old vanquished the powers of darkness; Skipper Ireson's Ride, a spirited song of the vengeance wrought by the women of Marblehead upon a sea-captain thought to have abandoned the crew of a sinking ship; Mabel Martin, an idyl of the days of witchcraft, and Amy Wentworth, a dainty romance of the old colonial time. Upon these ballads, and many others, New England childhood has been nurtured for a century, gaining from them its special sense of a heritage of no mean spiritual content, rich also in picturesque associations and romantic memories. The high-water mark of Whittier's artistic achievement was undoubtedly reached in the years that gave birth to Snow- Bound and The Tent on the Beach. The lat

oices whispered down; Along his task-field weird processions swept, The visionary pomp of stately phantoms stepped. The uncertainty of an author's judgment of his own books was never better illustrated than by the fact that Whittier's poem Mabel Martin first published under the name of The witch's daughter in the National Era for 1857-erroneously described by Mr. Pickard as first published in 1866--was his greatest immediate financial success. It was somewhat enlarged as Mabel Martin in 187Mabel Martin in 1877, and he received for it $1000 at the first annual payment. Mr. Pickard pronounces it charming, but I suspect that it is rarely copied, and hardly ever quoted — perhaps because the threeline measure is unfavourable to Whittier's style or to the public tastes. The absence of rhyme from one line in each three-line verse is not compensated by any advantage, while the four-line verse of the dedication of the whole work to the memory of his mother is very attractive. He has defects of execution

And, with mad cross-purpose, tug and strain At either end of the marriage-chain, The gossips say, with a knowing shake Of their gray heads, “Look at the Double Snake! One in body and two in will, The Amphisbaena is living still!” 1859. Mabel Martin. A harvest idyl. Susanna Martin, an aged woman of Amesbury, Mass., was tried and executed for the alleged crime of witchcraft. Her home was in what is now known as Pleasant Valley on the Merrimac, a little above the old Ferry way, where,ld, Recalling pastoral Ruth in her Who waited, blushing and demure, The red-ear's kiss of forfeiture.

But still the sweetest voice was mute That river-valley ever heard From lips of maid or throat of bird; For Mabel Martin sat apart, And let the hay-mow's shadow fall Upon the loveliest face of all. She sat apart, as one forbid, Who knew that none would condescend To own the Witch-wife's child a friend. The seasons scarce had gone their round, Since curious tho
