The Millennitan ; or, the New Golden Age. A Lay

of Edon Restored. By a Pilgrim from the Holy Land. (Adams and Francis.)—On so grave a subject we must needs speak under correction, but this poem seems to us a very fair attempt to vie with Satan Montgomery. There is the same outward appearance of smoothness, which, when analyzed, is found to result from a bold neglect of the laws of grammar, and the same show of imagination which produces the well known pictures in the style of the Turkey carpet. One of the finest passages, perhaps, is to be found at p.85, whore scenes of Eden and Hell contrasted with each other suddenly admit of the introduction of a Jewish old-clothes man.
