POCAHONTAS; AND OTHER POEMS. Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan, an Indian chief. When the first English settlers in America were in danger of perishing from want of food, she (a child of ten years old), accompanied by her companions, supplied the garrison with baskets of corn at intervals of two or three days. Subsequently, when one of the settlers was about to be killed, by order of her father, she laid her head upon that of the victim, and could not be induced to quit her position. The chief was moved by her entreaties and saved the captive's life. Pocahontas afterwards married a Mr. Rolfe, one of the settlers, came with him to England-was presented at the court of James I., and died here at the age of twenty-two, while preparing to return to her native country, and was buried at Gravesend. Mrs. Sigour. ney has produced a very pleasing Poem from these materials.

POEMS, RELIGIOUS AND ELEGIAC. It is impossible, within the confined space of an advertisement, to convey an adequate description of the various Poems contained in this volume, and when we say that the subjects are full of interest-the thoughts original and pointed,--and that the whole work breathes a spirit of fervent piety, we fail in doing justice to the Author.
