Muse of Numbers, the writer offers here a few of the few things that he has learned, at different times, from her, and hopes that they may not be thought too many. Lest the dates, put to most of them, should be thought to have been occasioned by a conceit or affectation, it is right to say that they are owing to a friends discovery of a remarkable chance-likeness between one of these, printed years ago, and a recent poem in aM agazine. One being dated, some others, at least, must be so; and in the end, most of these pieces have had the time at which they were written, given, after them. The general reader will be kind enough to pass over these dates as harmless; some friends may even find a slight interest in them. Some persons may need to be told that, where more than one date is given, the piece was left (forgotten, perhaps) altogether, between; then found and carried on. March,
