CARTER, Nathaniel Hazletine, author, born in Concord, New Hampshire, 17 September, 1787; died in Marseilles, France, 2 January, 1830o He was educated at Phillips Exeter academy and at Dartmouth, where he was graduated in 1811, after which he studied law and taught school in Salisbury, New Hampshire, and Portland, Maine In 1817 he was appointed professor of languages at Dartmouth, which was made a University at that time by the legislature, but lost his chair through the decision of the Supreme Court in the Dartmouth College case. He then removed to New York state, and in 1819 became editor and proprietor of the Albany " Register," afterward the "New York Statesman," an organ of the Clinton faction. In 1822 he established himself in New York City, uniting his paper with another and forming a copartnership with G. W. Prentiss. He delivered a poem on the " Pains of the Imagination" before the Phi Beta Kappa society of Dartmouth in 1824, and the following year travelled in Europe and wrote descriptive letters, published in the "Statesman " and widely reproduced in other papers. After his return he issued the same letters, revised and enlarged, comprising the journal of his tour in Great Britain, Ireland, France, Switzerland, and Italy, in two volumes (New York, 1827). His health failing, he spent a winter in Florida, and after his return withdrew from the editorship of the " Statesman." In the autumn of 1829 he accompanied a friend on a voyage to Marseilles, and died of consumption a few days after his arrival. He produced many occasional reflective poems.
