NOTES AND QUERIES;

A MEDIUM OF INTERCOMMUNICATION FOR LITERARY

MEN, GENERAL READERS, &c.

Volume Five, Fourth Series.

Containing, in addition to a great variety of similar Notes, Queries and Replies, articles of interest on the following subjects :

English, Irish, and Scottish History.

Contemporary Portrait of Mary Queen of Seots_Gunpowder PlotSir Thomas Roe and Lord Harrington Battles at Terouenne-Duke of Schomberg's Monument_Queen Elizabeth and FreemasonryDesignation of Chief Justices_Names of Seottish Martyrs_The Duke of Monmouth_Letter of Lord Nelson-Flight of James II.-Yorkshire Jacobites_Darnley's Bed_Lord Palmerston's Dismissal from Office.

Twenty-one years since, NOTES AND QUERIES was started for the purpose of supplying what was felt to be a great literary want, viz. a Journal to assist Lovers of Literature and Men of Research in their respective studies. Its utility as a Medium of Intercommunication between those for whom it was intended was at once admitted; and it was soon recognised as Everybody's Common-place Book. Its steady progress in public opinion since that period, renders any account of its object unnecessary.

But during these years a new generation has arisen, to whom it may be fitting to point out that NOTES AND QUERIES combine two of the most marked characteristics of this age-the spirit of inquiry and the principle of co-operation. For while in accordance with the former, its columns are open to all-from the ripe scholar to the more youthful student-who are in search of literary or historical information, it is by the mutual co-operation of all that the inquiries started in it are solved. Men of the highest attainments and social station have recognised this fact, by both asking and answering questions in its columns, and hence it is that NOTES AND QUERIES continucd to increase in influence, utility, and circulation.

* The interesting running commentary with which NOTES AND QUERIES accompany every current topic of literary interest.

Saturday Review, April 14, 1866. " That useful resuscitant of dead knowledge, yclept NOTES AND QUERIES, the antiquaries' newspaper."

Quarterly Review, No. 184, p. 323. * These two volumes (for 1864) overflow with curious scraps of out-ofthe-way learning, contributed by many of the best scholars of the day, and there are few branches of literature to which they do not furnish some new and amusing illustration. There English History has been illustrated by the curious contemporary narrative of James II. at Feversham, papers respecting Cromwell's head, the signet attributed to Mary Queen of Scots, and a host of similar articles. The gossip of last century is illustrated by the curious story of Charles Fox and Mrs. Grieve. Lord Stanhope shows what were the last books read by Mr. Pitt. The charge made by Lord Campbell against Bacon, in connection with the authorship of the Paradoxes,' is disproved by the discovery of their real author. The Defoe Letters startled the admirers of that extraordinary writer. The question of the assumption of names and arms, which has recently excited so much attention, is diseussed at considerable length. The story of Quenten Matsys and his picture of the Misers' is critically examined. Shakespere's life and writings form the subject of a variety of articles, and, in short, old poetry. ballads, folk-lore, popular antiquities, topography, bibliography, literary history, all alike, have, during the past year, furnished new materials to this weekly journal to justify the character so well betowed upon it, of its being at the same time learned, chatty, and useful." -Morning Post.

to insure which Holloway's Pills and Ointment have long been famous,

penetrates immediately to the liver, whose blood and nerves it rectifies.

In the summary of Cicero's character with which Mr. Forsyth concludes the reader will receive the fairest estimate which, in our opinion, has ever been offered.
