Patriotic Poetry. (Norgate and Co.)—This little collection may be commended

to teachers. Hymns will naturally be the first things that most children will learn. After them, a choice has to be made, and patriotic poetry has a first claim. This volume will be suitable for children fairly advanced in intelligence. Copyright, we suppose, keeps some fine things out of the collection, but, so far as it goes, it is distinctly good.
