The Last Crusader. A Poem in Four Cantos. (Saunders and

Otley.) —The author of this string of rhyme spells "poesy," "courtesy," "chivalry," "minstrelsy," and all other similar words, " poesie," "courtosie," "chivalrie," " minstrolsie," and so forth. By this simple device ho gives an antique appearance to his volume, and makes it look as if it had survived two or three centuries. But the date on the title- page is 1867, and we do not think the poem will live till 1868.
