[Old English W].

Philadelphia.

Soke Mill (Vol. viii., p. 272.).—Suit is not now enforced to the King's Mills in the manor of Wrexham, in the county of Denbigh, but the lessee of the manorial rights of the crown receives a payment at the rate of threepence per bushel for all the malt ground in hand-mills within the limits of the manor.

TAFFY.

Binometrical Verse (Vol. viii., p. 292.).—This verse appeared in the Athenaeum (Sept. 2, 1848, No. 1088, p. 883.), given by one correspondent as having been previously forwarded by another; but it does not appear to have been previously published.

M.

Watch-paper Inscription (Vol. viii., p. 316.).—Twenty-five years ago this inscription was set to music, and was popular in private circles. The melody was moderately good, and the "monitory pulse-like beating" of course was acted, perhaps over-acted, in the accompaniment. I am not sure it was printed, but the fingers of young ladies produced a great many copies. Your correspondent's version is quite accurate, and I think he must have heard it sung, as well as read it. Segnius irritant, &c. is not true of what is read as opposed to what is heard with music.

M.

Dotinchem (Vol. viii., p. 151.).—Dotinchem appears to be the place which is called Deutichem in the map of the Netherlands and Belgian, published by the Useful Knowledge Society in 1843, and Deutekom in the map of the kingdom of the Netherlands, published by the same society in 1830. Moreri spells the name Dotechem, Dotekom, and Dotekum. It is situated on the Yssel, south-east of Doesburg.

B. J.

Reversible Names and Words (Vol. viii., p. 244.).—I cannot call to mind any such propria mascula: but I think I can cast a doubt on your correspondent's crotchet. Surely our civic authorities (not even excepting the Mayor) are veritable males, though sometimes deserving the sobriquet of "old women." Surveyors, builders, carpenters, {376} and bricklayers are the only persons who use the level. On board ship, it is the males who professionally attend at the poop. Our foreign-looking friend rotator, at once suggestive of certain celebrated personages in the lower house, is by termination masculine; and such members, in times of political probation, never fail to show themselves evitative rather than plucky.

But some words are reversible in sense as well as in orthography. If a man draw "on" me, I should be to blame if at least I did not ward "off" the blow. Whom should we repel sooner than the leper? Who will live hereafter, if he be a doer of evil? We should always seek to deliver him who is being reviled. Even Shakspeare was aware of the fact, that it is a God who breeds magots in a dead dog (vide Hamlet). "Cum multis aliis." The art of composing palindromes is one, at least, as instructive as, and closely allied to, that of de-ciphering. If any one calls the compositions in question "trash," I cannot better answer than in palindrome, Trash? even interpret Nineveh's art! for the deciphering of the cuneiform character is both a respectable and a useful exercise of ingenuity. The English language, however, is not susceptible of any great amount of palindromic compositions. The Latin is, of all, the best adapted for that fancy. I append an inscription for a hospital, which is a paraphrase of a verse in the Psalms:

"Acide me malo, sed non desola me, medica."

I doubt whether such compositions should ever be characterised by the term sotadic. Sotadic verses were, I believe, restricted to indecent love-songs.

C. MANSFIELD INGLEBY.

Birmingham.

Detached Church Towers (Vol. vii. passim; Vol. viii., p. 63.).—At Morpeth, in Northumberland, the old parish church stands on an eminence at the distance of a mile from the town. In the market-place is a square clock tower, the bells in which are used for ordinary parochial purposes.

At Kirkoswald, in Cumberland, where the church stands low, the belfry has been erected on an adjoining hill.

E. H. A.

Bishop Ferrar (Vol. viii., p. 103.).—Bishop Ferrar, martyred in Queen Mary's reign, was not of the same family with the Ferrers, Earl of Derby and Nottingham. Was your correspondent led to think so from the fact of the martyr having been originally a bishop of the Isle of Man?

A LINEAL DESCENDANT OF THE MARTYR.

Cambridge.

"They shot him by the nine stone rig" (Vol. viii., p. 78.).—This fragmentary ballad is to be found in the Border Minstrelsy. It was contributed by R. Surtees of Mainsforth, co. Durham, and described by him as having been taken down from the recitation of Anne Douglas, an old woman who weeded in his garden. It is however most likely that it is altogether factitious, and Mr. Surtees' own production, Anne Douglas being a pure invention.

The ballad called "The Fray of Haltwhistle," a portion of which, "How the Thirlwalls and the Ridleys a'," &c., is interwoven with the text in the first canto of Marmion, is generally understood to have been composed by Mr. Surtees. He, however, succeeded in palming it upon Scott as a genuine old ballad; and states that he had it from the recitation of an ancient dame, mother of one of the miners of Alston Moor. Scott's taste for old legends and ballads was certainly not too discriminating, or he would never have swallowed "The Fray of Haltwhistle." Perhaps he suspected its authenticity, for he says of it:

"Scantily Lord Marmion's ear could brook The harper's barbarous lay."

T. D. RIDLEY.

Punning Devices (Vol. viii., p. 270.).—In the 4th volume of Surtees' History of Durham, p. 48., there is an account of the Orchard Chamber in Sledwish Hall:

"In the centre is a shield of the arms of Clopton; being two coats quarterly, a lion rampant and a cross pattee fitchee; over all, a crescent for difference.[1] On two other shields, impressed from one mould, are the initials E. C., the date 1584, and a tun with a rose clapt on."[2]

OLD GRUMBLEUM.

[Footnote 1: This note says the arms are reversed, being impressed from a mould.]

[Footnote 2: "The crest of Clopton is a falcon clapping his wings, and rising from a tun; and I verily believe the rose clapt on to be the miserable quibble intended."]

Ashman's ParkWingfield's Portrait (Vol. viii., p. 299.).-Could any correspondent in Suffolk inform me if Ashman's Park has been sold; and if the pictures are anywhere to be found, especially that of Sir Anthony Wingfield? The communication of H. C. K. relative to the above subject is very interesting.

Q.

"Crowns have their compass," &c. (Vol. iv., p. 428.).—In the well-known lines attributed to Shakspeare, and quoted in the above volume, the third stands thus:

"Of more than earth can earth make none partaker."

I find that Quarles has borrowed this in his Emblems, book i. Emblem vi.:

"Of more than earth can earth make none possest."

HENRY H. BREEN.

St. Lucia.

{377}

Ampers & (Vol. ii., pp.230. 284.; Vol. viii., pp. 173. 223. 284.).—Allow me to thank both [Phi]. and MR. HENRY WALTER for their replies to my Query; but I am unhappily no wiser than MR. LOWER was after [Phi].'s first response. What on earth "et-per-se" or "and-per-se-and" can mean, I am at a loss to imagine. Why should et be called "et by itself?" Until this Query is answered, I am as much in the dark as ever. While I am upon the matter, I would farther ask this mysterious Ampers and, "who gave thee that name?" May it find a proxy to answer for it!

C. MANSFIELD INGLEBY.

Birmingham.

The origin of this expression is, explained in Vol. ii., p. 318. With regard to the orthography of the word, it seems to me that, if the etymon be followed, it ought to be written and-per-se-and; if the pronunciation, ampussy and.

L.

Throwing Old Shoes for Luck (Vol. vii., p. 411.).—There is an old rhyme still extant, which gives an early date to this singular custom:

"When Britons bold, Wedded of old, Sandals were backward thrown, The pair to tell, That, ill or well The act was all their own."

An octogenarian of my acquaintance informs me that he heard himself thus anathematised when, leaving his native village with his bride, he refused to comply with the extortionate demands of an Irish beggar:

"Then it's bad luck goes wid yer, For my shoe I toss, An ye niver come back, 'Twill be no great loss."

CHARLES REED.

Ennui (Vol. vii., p. 478.).—It is a curious fact that in English, properly so called, we have no word to express this certainly un-English sensation, which we are obliged to borrow from our friends across the channel. They repay themselves with "comfortable," which is quite as characteristically wanting in their vocabulary: so they lose nothing by the exchange. Were we disposed to supply the gaps in our language, by using our own native words (which is much to be desired), we might find a sufficient (and I believe the only) synonyme in the Bedfordshire folk-word unked: at any rate, it is near enough for us, for we neither require the word nor the feeling it is meant to designate.

Notices to Correspondents.

BOOKS WANTED. We believe that gentlemen in want of particular books, either by way of loan or purchase, would find great facilities in obtaining them if their names and addresses were published, so that parties having the books might communicate directly with those who want them. Acting on this belief, we shall take advantage of the recent alteration in the law respecting advertisements, and in future, where our Correspondents desire to avail themselves of this new arrangement, shall insert their names and addresses—unless specially requested not to do so.

ALL COMMUNICATIONS should be addressed to the Editor, to the care of Mr. Bell, 186. Fleet Street. They should be distinctly written; and care should be taken that all Quotations are copied with accuracy: and in all cases of References to Books the editions referred to should be specified. Every distinct subject should form a separate communication; all inquiries respecting communications forwarded for insertion should specify the subjects of such communications.

ARTERUS (Dublin) has not replied to our inquiry as to the book from which he has transcribed the Latin verses which form the subject of his Query.

OUR PROSPECTUS has been reprinted at the suggestion of several Correspondents, and we shall be happy to forward copies to any friends who may desire to assist us by circulating them.

SEMPER PARATUS. We cannot afford the information desired. Out Correspondent would probably be more successful on application to the editor of the paper referred to.

* * * * *

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.
