"The Good Old Cause" (Vol. viii, p. 44.).—D'Israeli, in Quarrels of Authors, under the head of "Martin Mar-Prelate," has the following remarks on the origin and use of the expression, "The Good Old Cause:"

"It is remarkable that Udall repeatedly employed that expression, which Algernon Sidney left as his last legacy to the people, when he told them he was about to die for 'that Old Cause, in which I was from my youth engaged.' Udall perpetually insisted on 'The Cause.' This was a term which served at least for a watch-word: it rallied the scattered members of the republican party. The precision of the expression might have been difficult to ascertain; and, perhaps, like every popular expedient, varied with 'existing circumstances.' I did not, however, know it had so remote an origin as in the reign of Elizabeth; and suspect it may still be freshened up and varnished over for any present occasion."

HENRY H. BREEN.

St. Lucia.

The following curious paragraph in the Post Boy, June 3-5, 1714, seems to have been connected with the Jacobites:

"There are lately arrived here the Dublin Plenipo's. All persons that have any business concerning the GOOD OLD CAUSE, let 'em repair to Jenny Man's Coffee House at Charing Cross, where they may meet with the said Plenipo's every day of the week except Sundays, and every evening of those days they are to be spoke with at the Kit-Cat Club."

E. G. BALLARD.

Jeroboam of Claret, &c. (Vol vii., p.528.).—Is a magnum anything more than a bottle larger {422} than those of the ordinary size, and containing about two quarts; or a Jeroboam other than a witty conceit applied to the old measure Joram or Jorum, by some profane wine-bibber?

H. C. K.

Humbug (Vol. vii., p. 631.).—The real signification of the word humbug appears to me to lie in the following derivation of it. Among the many issues of base coin which from time to time were made in Ireland, there was none to be compared in worthlessness to that made by James II. from the Dublin Mint; it was composed of anything on which he could lay his hands, such as lead, pewter, copper, and brass, and so low was its intrinsic value, that twenty shillings of it was only worth twopence sterling. William III., a few days after the Battle of the Boyne, ordered that the crown piece and half-crown should be taken as one penny and one halfpenny respectively. The soft mixed metal of which that worthless coining was composed, was known among the Irish as Uim bog, pronounced Oom-bug, i.e. soft copper, i.e. worthless money; and in the course of their dealings the modern use of the word humbug took its rise, as in the phrases "that's a piece of uimbog (humbug)," "don't think to pass off your uimbug on me." Hence the word humbug came to be applied to anything that had a specious appearance, but which was in reality spurious. It is curious to note that the very opposite of humbug, i.e. false metal, is the word sterling, which is also taken from a term applied to the true coinage of the realm, as sterling coin, sterling truth, sterling worth, &c.

FRAS. CROSSLEY.

"Could we with ink," &c. (Vol. viii., pp. 127, 180.).-If Rabbi Mayir Ben Isaac is the bona fide author of the lines in question, or the substance of them, then the author of the Koran has been indebted to him for the following passage:

"If the sea were ink, to write the words of my Lord, verily the sea would fail before the words of my Lord would fail; although we added another sea unto it as a farther supply."—Al Koran, chap. xviii., entitled "The Cave," translated by Sale.

The question is, Did Rabbi Mayir Ben Isaac, author of the Chaldee ode sung in every synagogue on the day of Pentecost, flourish before or since the Mohamedan era?

"Hurrah!" (Vol. viii., pp. 20, 277, 323.).—It would almost deem that we are never to hear the last of "Hurrah! and other war-cries." Your correspondents T. F. and SIR J. EMERSON TENNENT appear to me to have made the nearest approach to a satisfactory solution of the difficulty; a step farther and the goal is won—the object of inquiry is found. I suppose it will be admitted that the language which supplies the meaning of a word has the fairest claim to be considered its parent language. What, then, is the meaning of "Hurrah," and in whet language? As a reply to this Query, allow me to quote a writer in Blackwood's Magazine, April 1843, p. 477.

"'Hurrah!' means strike in the Tartar language."—Note to art. "Amulet Bek."

So then, according to this respectable authority, the end of our shouts and war-cries is, that we have "caught a Tartar!"

Again, in Blackwood, 1849, vol. i. p.673., we read:

"He opened a window and cried 'Hourra!' At the signal, a hundred soldiers crowded into the house. Mastering his fury, the Czar ordered the young officer to be taken to prison."—Art. "Romance of Russian History."

Thus, in describing the "awful pause" on the night preceding the Russian attack on Ismail, then in possession of the Turks, Lord Byron says:

"A moment—and all will be life again! The march! the charge! the shouts of either faith! Hurra! and Allah! and—one instant more— The death-cry drowning in the battle's roar." Works, p. 684. col. 2.

"Qui facit per alium facit per se" (Vol. viii., p. 231.).—"Qui facit per alium, est perinde ac si faciat per seipsum," is one of the maxims of Boniface VIII. (Sexti Decret., lib. v. tit. 12., de Reg. Jur. c. 72.; Boehm. Corp. Jur. can., tom. ii. col. 1040.), derived, according to the glossary (vid. in Decret., ed. fol., Par. 1612), from the maxim of Paulus (Digest, lib. 1. tit. 17., de Div. Reg. Jur. 1. 180.), "Quod jussu alterius solvitur, pro eo est quasi ipsi solutum esset."

E. M.

Tsar (Vol. viii., pp. 150, 226.).—Is not tsar rather cognate with the Heb. (Sar), a leader, commander, or prince? This root is to be found in many other languages, as Arabic, Persian; Latin serro. Gesenius gives the meaning of the word (Sarah), to place in a row, to set in order; to be leader, commander, prince. If tsar have this origin, it will be synonymous with imperator, emperor.

B. H. C.

Scrape (Vol. viii., p. 292.).—I do not know when this word began to be used in this sense. Shakspeare says "Ay, there's the rub:" an analogous phrase, which may throw light upon the one "to get into a scrape." Both are metaphors, derived from the unpleasant sensations produced by rubbing or grazing the skin. The word pinch is, on the same principle, used for difficulty; and the Lat. tribulatio=trouble, and its synonym in Gr., thlipsis, have a similar origin and application. {423} "To get into a scrape" is, therefore, to get into trouble.

B. H. C.

Baskerville (Vol. viii., p. 202.).—Among the articles consumed at Mr. Ryland's at Birmingham, was the body of the late Mr. Baskerville, who by his will ordered that he should be buried in his own house, and he was accordingly interred there. A stone closet was erected in it, where he was deposited in a standing posture. The house was afterwards sold with this express condition, that it should remain there."—Account of the Birmingham riots in 1791, from the Historical Magazine, vol. iii., where it is said the house was burned on Friday afternoon, July 15."

B. H. C.

A great-uncle of mine owned the Baskerville property (he, Baskerville, was buried in his own grounds) at the time of the Church and King Riot in 1791; but it was the recent growth of the town that occasioned the disinterment.

R.

Sheriffs of Glamorganshire (Vol. iii., p. 186.; Vol. viii., p. 353.).—Your correspondent TEWARS is certainly wrong in ascribing to the Rev. H. H. Knight the list of Glamorganshire sheriffs inquired for by EDMUND W. It is true this gentleman printed a list of them many years after the former, which was privately printed by the Rev. J. M. Traherne, and subsequently published a Cardiff Guide, by Mr. Bird of Cardiff. I have seen both copies, and the latter may doubtless yet be seen upon application to Mr. Bird. I have also seen the more recent list by my learned friend the rector of Neath.

BIBLIOTHECAR.

CHETHAM.

Synge Family—sub voce Carr Pedigree (Vol. vii., p. 558.; Vol. viii., p. 327.).—Has the statement made by GULIELMUS, as to the origin of the name of Synge, ever appeared in print before? And if so, where? I have long been curious to identify the individual whose name underwent such a singular change, and to ascertain if he really was a chantry priest as reported. Was he George Synge, the grandfather of George Synge, Bishop of Cloyne, born 1594? Of what family was Mary Paget, wife of the Rev. Richard Synge, preacher at the Savoy in 1715? The name appears to have been indifferently spelt, Sing, Singe, and Synge. And I believe an older branch than the baronet's still exists at Bridgenorth, writing themselves Sing. The punning motto of this family is worth noticing: "Celestia canimus."

ARTHUR PAGET.

Lines on Woman (Vol. viii., p. 350).—Your correspondent F. W. J. has occasioned me some perplexity in tracing the quotation which he refers to Vol. viii., p. 204., but which is really to be found at p. 292. He appears to have fallen into this error by mistaking the number on the right hand for the paging on the left. As accuracy in these matters is essential in a publication like "N. & Q.," he will excuse me for setting him right. The name of the author of the poem of "Woman" was not Eton Barrett, but Eaton Stannard Barrett. He was connected with the press in London. Your correspondent is correct in stating that the Barretts were from Cork. Eaton Stannard Barrett was a man of considerable ability. He published several works anonymously, all of which acquired celebrity; but I believe the poem of "Woman," published by Mr. Colburn, was the only work to which he attached his name. He was the author of the well-known political satire called All the Talents; of the mock romance of The Heroine, in which the absurdities of a school of fiction, at that time in high favour, are happily ridiculed; and of a novel which had great success in its day, and is still to be found in some of the circulating libraries, called Six Weeks at Long's. Eaton Stannard Barrett died many years ago in the prime of his life and powers. His brother, Richard Barrett, is still living, and resides in the neighbourhood of Dublin. He is the author of some controversial and political pamphlets, of which the principal were Irish Priests, and The Bible not a Dangerous Book. He afterwards conducted The Pilot newspaper, established for the support of Mr. O'Connell's policy in Ireland, and was one of the persons who suffered imprisonment with Mr. O'Connell, and who were designated in the Irish papers as the "martyrs."

ROBERT BELL.

Lisle Family (Vol. vii., p. 365. et ante).—R. H. C. will find in Berry's Hampshire Genealogies (1 vol. folio, London, 1833) a pedigree of the Lisles he alludes to as being buried at Thruxton, Hampshire. The shield, Lisle impaling Courtenay, on the altar tomb there would appear to belong to Sir John Lisle, Kt., who married Joan, daughter of John Courtenay, Earl of Exeter.

ARTHUR PAGET.

Duval Family (Vol. viii., p. 318.).—If H. will have the kindness to address himself to me either personally or by letter, I shall be happy to give him any information I can, derived from old family documents in my possession, respecting the Duval family and the Walls of the south of Ireland.

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS.

BOOKS WANTED. So many of our Correspondents seem disposed to avail themselves of our plan of placing the booksellers in direct communication with them, that we find ourselves compelled to limit each list of books to two insertions. We would also express a hope that those gentlemen who may at once succeed in obtaining any desired volumes will be good enough to notify the same to us, in order that such books may not unnecessarily appear in such list even a second time.

P. G. We are not in a position to answer P. G.'sinquiries. Why not try one of the series and judge for yourself?

A GERMAN INVESTIGATOR, who states that some important moves towards the "flying by man" have lately been made upon the Continent, and who inquires "what noblemen or gentlemen would be likely to foster similar researches in this country," should rather address himself to some of the journals devoted to mechanical science.

SCIOLUS. The author of Doctor Syntax was the well-known William Coombe, a curious list of whose works will be found in the Gentleman's Magazine for May, 1852, p. 467.

CHARLES DEMAYNE. We have a letter for this Correspondent; where shall it be sent?

ERICA will find his illustration of Campbell's Like Angel Visits anticipated in our 1st Vol.

J. N. C. (King's Lynn). We have one or two Replies on the same subject already in the Printer's hands.

A. J. V. (University Club) will find his Query respecting Solamen miseris, &c. in Vol. viii., p. 272., and an answer respecting Tempora mutantur in p. 306.

Our Correspondent C. E. F. (p. 373.) is informed—1. That both the solutions of the muriate salts and the nitrate of silver may be used in the manner he proposes; but a portion of sugar of milk, mannite, or grape sugar, as has been previously recommended, much accelerates the process. 2. The positives should be printed about one-third deeper than is required, and they should remain in the hypo. bath until the mottled appearance is removed, which is visible when held up against the light and they are looked through: at first the positive often assumes a very unpleasant red colour; this gradually disappears by longer immersion, when the proofs may be removed at the point of tint required, remembering that they become rather darker when dry, especially if ironed, and which is generally desirable, especially if the print is rather pale. 3. The sel d'or does not seem to have the destructive effect which the chloride of gold has, and if the chemicals are entirely removed, in all probability they are quite permanent. Those which we have seen printed several months since appear to have suffered no change. Pictures produced by the ammonio-nitrate are most uncertain. There are few who have not had the mortification to see some of their best productions fade and disappear. A learned professor, about eighteen months since, sent us a picture so printed "as something to work up to;" a few yellowish stains are now all that remains on the paper.

I shall be happy to answer any inquiries.—REV. JOHN W. FLAVELL, Ridlington Rectory, Norfolk."

Dr. Wurzer's Testimonial.

"Bonn, July 19, 1852.

"This light and pleasant Farina is one of the most excellent, nourishing, and restorative remedies, and supersedes, in many cases, all kinds of medicines. It is particularly useful in confined habit of body, as also diarrhoea, bowel complaints, affections of the kidneys and bladder, such as stone or gravel; inflammatory irritation and cramp of the urethra, cramp of the kidneys and bladder, strictures, and hemorrhoids. This really invaluable remedy is employed with the most satisfactory result, not only in bronchial and pulmonary complaints, where irritation and pain are to be removed, but also in pulmonary and bronchial consumption, in which it counteracts effectually the troublesome cough; and I am enabled with perfect truth to express the conviction that Du Barry's Revalenta Arabica is adapted to the cure of incipient hectic complaints and consumption.

"DR. RUD WURZER. "Counsel of Medicine, and practical M.D. in Bonn."

Containing Sixteen Pages, Crown Quarto, Price Three Halfpence, of

THE CHURCH OF THE PEOPLE,

A Monthly Journal of Literature, Science, the Fine Arts, &c., devoted to the Religious, Moral, Physical, and Social Elevation of the great body of the People.

This periodical, projected and conducted by a committee of Clergy and Laity, in the heart of the manufacturing districts, is intended to express the sympathies of earnest Churchmen towards both their brethren in the faith, and their fellow-men in general.

Designed to avoid unreality, lukewarmness, and dry dogmatism, as well as compromise and controversy—and not unmindful of things temporal, whilst chiefly directed to things eternal—it is hoped that it may assist to refresh the faithful, correct the erring, and win the unbeliever.

A trial is respectfully requested for it, and that at once.

It is a work of love, not of lucre; and, as such, is commended to the brotherhood.

It will be eminently fitted for parochial distribution and, by God's blessing, may do its part towards removing English heathenism.

*** Suggestions and communications, written in a plain, earnest, and attractive style, are respectfully requested, and may be addressed to the editors of "The Church of the People," care of MR. SOWLER, St. Ann's Square, Manchester, to whom books for review, and advertisements, may be sent.
