JOHN BRUCE.

Engine-a-verge (Vol. vii., p. 619.).—Is not this what we term a garden engine? The French vergier (viridarium) is doubtless so named, quia virga definita; and we have the old English word verge, a garden, from the same source.

H. C. K.

—— Rectory, Hereford.

"Populus vult decipi," &c. (Vol. vii., p. 572.).—The origin of this phrase is found in Thuanus, lib. xvii. A.D. 1556. See Jackson's Works, book iii. ch. 32. s. 9. note.

C. P. E.

Sir John Vanbrugh (Vol. vii., p. 619.).—Sir John Vanbrugh was the grandson of a Protestant refugee, from a family originally of Ghent in Flanders. The Duke of Alva's persecution drove him to England, where he became a merchant in London. Giles, the son of this refugee, resided in Chester, became rich by trade, and married the youngest daughter of Sir Dudley Carleton, by whom he had eight sons, of whom Sir John Vanbrugh was the second. The presumption is he was born in Chester, but the precise date is unknown.

ANON.

Erroneous Forms of Speech (Vol. vii., pp. 329. 632.).—With regard to your two correspondents E. G. R. and M., I hold that, with Cowper's disputants, "both are right and both are wrong."

The name of the field beet is, in the language of the unlearned, mangel-wurzel, "the root of poverty." It acquired that name from having been used as food by the poor in Germany during a time of great famine. Turning to Buchanan's Technological Dictionary, I find,—

"Mangel-wurzel. Field beet; a variety between the red and white. It has as yet been only partially cultivated in Britain."

In reference to the assertion of your later correspondent, that "such a thing as mangel-wurzel is not known on the Continent," I would ask if either he or his friends are familiar with half the beautiful and significant terms applied to English flowers and herbs? If he prefer using mangold for beet, he is quite at liberty to do so, and I believe on sufficiently good authority. What says Noehden, always a leading authority in German:

"Mangold. Red beet; name of some other plants, such as lungwort and sorrel."

Mangold is here, then, a generic term, standing for other plants equally with the beet. One suggestion, however; I would recommend the generic term, when used at all, to be used alone, leaving the more familiar appellation as it stands, for the adoption of those who prefer the homely but suggestive phraseology to which it belongs.

E. L. H.

Devonianisms (Vol. vii., p. 630.).—Plum, adj. I am at a loss for the origin of this word as employed in Devonshire in the sense of "soft," e.g. "a plum bed:" meaning a soft, downy bed.

Query: Can it be from the Latin pluma? And if so, what is its history?

There is also a verb to plum, which is obscure. Dough, when rising under the influence of heat and fermentation, is said to be plumming well; and the word plum, as an adjective, is used as the opposite of heavy with regard to currant and other cakes when baked. If the cake rises well in the oven, it is commonly said that it is "nice and plum;" and vice versa, that it is heavy.

Clunk, verb. This word is used by the common people, more especially the peasantry, to denote the swallowing of masses of unmasticated food; and of morsels that may not be particularly relished, such as fat. What is the origin of the word?

Dollop, subs. This word, as well as the one last-named, is very expressive in the vocabulary of the vulgar. It is applied to lumps of any substances, whether food or otherwise. Such a phrase as this might be heard: "What a dollop of fat you have given me!" "Well," would be the reply, "if you don't like it, clunk it at once." I should be glad to be enlightened as to the etymology of this term.

ISAIAH W. N. KEYS.

Notices to Correspondents.

Owing to the necessity of infringing on the present Number for the Title-page of our Seventh Volume, we are compelled to omit many interesting communications, and our usual NOTES ON BOOKS, &c.

ABREDONENSIS must be referred to the Philosophical Transactions, vol. xliii. p. 249., for a reply to his Query. It will be sufficient here to state, that the Willingham Boy was at his birth of gigantic form, and an object of great curiosity to the philosophical world. It is not stated how long he lived, or what education he received, so that we cannot ascertain whether he distinguished himself in any "department of literature or art."

H. N. will find in our Seventh Volume, p. 192., that the quotation—

"Perhaps it was right to dissemble your love," &c.,

is from J. P. Kemble's Comedy of The Panel, altered from Bickerstaff's 'Tis well 'tis no worse.

MR. POLLOCK'S PROCESS.—"In answer to N. T. B., a saturated solution of hypo. saturated with iodide of silver.

"21. Maddox Street. HENRY POLLOCK."

T. B. (Coventry). Paper positives are seldom varnished. The glossy appearance which they possess may depend either upon their being printed on albumenised paper, or upon their being hot-pressed. The latter process always much improves the picture. Where the size has been much removed, it is well to re-size the paper, which may be done by boiling a few parchment cuttings in water, and soaking the prints in the liquor.

H. H. H. (Ashburton). All the best authorities concur in the uncertain properties of the salts of gold. We have seen some Daguerreotypes which have been executed about three years, and were treated with the salts of gold, and which are now mere shades.

C. M. M. (Abbey Road). Your question as to the spots has been carefully answered in a late Number. The film which you notice on the surface of your nit. silver bath depends upon the remaining portion of ether in the collodion being liberated, which, not being very soluble in water, causes the greasy appearance. It soon evaporates, and is of no consequence.

T. COOK is thanked for his offer of a cheap and easy method of obtaining pictures for the stereoscope. We shall be glad to receive it.

DR. DIAMOND'S PHOTOGRAPHIC NOTES.—We share in the desire expressed by W. C., J. M. S., and many other Correspondents, for the speedy publication of this volume. But we believe the delay is not to be regretted. It is a very easy matter to write a book upon Photography; but it requires no small labour, and great consideration, to produce such a volume as DR. DIAMOND proposes, in which it is his desire to explain everything so clearly, that a person living in a remote part of the country, or in the colonies, may, from his directions, make a good photograph.

Errata.—P. 25., last line, read "campus" for "campres;" p. 26., fourth line, read "iaro" for "iars;" p. 36., 2nd col. line 18., read "regularity" for "irregularity."

A few complete sets of "NOTES AND QUERIES," Vols. i. to vii., price Three Guineas and a Half, may now be had; for which early application is desirable.

"NOTES AND QUERIES" is published at noon on Friday, so that the Country Booksellers may receive Copies in that night's parcels, and deliver them to their Subscribers on the Saturday.

INDIGESTION, CONSTIPATION, NERVOUSNESS, &c.—BARRY, DU BARRY & CO.'S HEALTH-RESTORING FOOD for INVALIDS and INFANTS.

THE REVALENTA ARABICA FOOD, the only natural, pleasant, and effectual remedy (without medicine, purging, inconvenience, or expense, as it saves fifty times its cost in other remedies) for nervous, stomachic, intestinal, liver and bilious complaints, however deeply rooted, dyspepsia (indigestion), habitual constipation, diarrhoea, acidity, heartburn, flatulency, oppression, distension, palpitation, eruption of the skin, rheumatism, gout, dropsy, sickness at the stomach during pregnancy, at sea, and under all other circumstances, debility in the aged as well as infants, fits, spasms, cramps, paralysis, &c.

A few out of 50,000 Cures:—

Cure, No. 71, of dyspepsia; from the Right Hon. the Lord Stuart de Decies:—"I have derived considerable benefits from your Revalenta Arabica Food, and consider it due to yourselves and the public to authorise the publication of these lines.—STUART DE DECIES."

Cure, No. 49,832:—"Fifty years' indescribable agony from dyspepsia, nervousness, asthma, cough, constipation, flatulency, spasms, sickness at the stomach, and vomitings have been removed by Du Barry's excellent food.—MARIA JOLLY, Wortham Ling, near Diss, Norfolk."

Cure, No. 180:—"Twenty-five years' nervousness, constipation, indigestion, and debility, from which I had suffered great misery, and which no medicine could remove or relieve, have been effectually cured by Du Barry's food in a very short time.—W. R. REEVES, Pool Anthony, Tiverton."

Cure, No. 4,208:—"Eight years' dyspepsia, nervousness, debility, with cramps, spasms, and nausea, for which my servant had consulted the advice of many, have been effectually removed by Du Barry's delicious food in a very short time. 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."

Regent Street, London, in full, without which none is genuine.

"I have great pleasure in bearing testimony to the beauty of the type, the clearness of the definitions, and to the great addition of words of recent introduction into our language. I have compared it with several contemporary publications of a similar character, and hesitate not for one moment to say, it is decidedly the best of those which have come under my notice."—E.
