Excerpt from Manhood, or Scenes From the Past: A Series of Poems The reader of a former volume, written by the au thor of the present, will recognise, in this, the contin nation of a work, which was there left unfinished. To those who have not seen that volume, it may be meces sary to say, that the original design embraced a series of poems, in which the progress of Human Life should be traced from infancy to old age. The part formerly published was devoted to Youth; the subject of the present is Manhood as that of the next (should anoth er follow) will be Age. But though thus connected, in design, each forms a separate work, complete in it self, without reference to the two other parts.
