NACK, James, poet, born in New York city, 4 January, 1809; died there, 23 September, 1879. He was the son of merchant, and showed great precocity in early youth. An accident deprived him at first of the power of articulation, and afterward of hearing, and he was educated in the Institution for the deaf and dumb in New York city. He married in 1838, and became an assistant in the office of the clerk of the city and county of New York. Here he continued more than thirty years. Toward the close of his life he lived in retirement, but kept up an extensive correspondence. His incessant regret was that he had accomplished so little to advance the cause of letters. Nack frequently contributed poems to the New York "Mirror," varied with renderings from the French and German poets. Among his verses that have been popular are "Spring is Coming" and "Here She goes and there She goes." His publications include "The Legend of the Rocks" (New York, 1827);" Earl Rupert, and other Poems" (1839); "The Immortal, and other Poems" (1850) ; " Poems" (1852) ; and "The Romance of the Ring, and other Poems" (1859).
