The Coining Day, and Other Poems. By Henry John Doogood.

(Cas- sell, Potter, and Galpin.)—These poems are marked by a cheerful piety, which is more than ordinarily pleasing from one who labours under the affliction of blindness. The diction is graceful, and the simpler poems are very natural and touching. We are glad to see that this is a second edition, and that Mr. Doogood's admirers have an opportunity of acquiring an old friend in a very handsome dress. The binding is extremely tasteful as well as sumptuous.
