GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE LIBRARY.
Edited by G. LAURENCE GOMME, F.S.A.

This section of the "GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE LIBRARY" is particularly interesting as giving an accurate record of the Principal Seats of the Local Gentry, the Birthplaces of Noted Inhabitants, &c., and other information which cannot be found elsewhere, and which is invaluable to the Local Historian, the Genealogist, and the Student of our Country's Progress.

"The editor has performed his work with accuracy and discretion, while the method of classification is excellent." Saturday Review. "Not a dull line is there in the work, and the whole constitutes pleasant and edifying reading."

HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT and PILLS

need only a single trial to make known their capabilities. No outside sore or inward inflammation can long withstand the cooling, purifying, and healing influences exerted by these twin medicaments. Be the mischief recent or chronic, great or slight, painful, or simply annoying, it will succumb before the curative virtues of these noble remedies, which can be rightly applied by any person who will attentively read their accompanying directions, which are propounded in the plainest language, void of technical terms, and printed in the most legible characters. To the man of business, confined to his countinghouse, and harassed by engagements, these Pills are invaluable; for the man of pleasure, addicted to free living, they are peerless.

The GOLDEN LIBRARY.-Square 16mo.[cloth, 28. CONTRIBUTIONS to a BALLAD HISTORY of

ENGLAND.

Atheneum:-"These ballads are spirited and stirring: such are 'The Fall of Harald Hardrada,'' Old Benbow,'Marston Moor,' and 'Corporal John,' the soldier's name for the famous Duke of Marlborough, which is a specially good ballad. 'Queen Eleanor's Vengeance' is a vividly told story. Coming to more modern times, The Deeds of Wellington,' Inkerman,' and 'Balaklava' are excellently well said and sung. As a book of ballads, interesting to all who have British blood in their veins, Dr. Bennett's contribution will be welcome. Dr. Bennett's Ballads will eave a strong impression on the memory of those who read them." CHATTO & WINDUS, Piccadilly.

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.-For the cure of debility,

bile, liver and stomach complaints this inappreciable medicine is 80 well known in every part of the world, and the cures performed by its use are so wonderful, that it now stands pre-eminent above all other remedies, more particularly for the cure of bilious and liver complaints, disorders of the stomach, dropsy and debilitated constitution. In these diseases the beneficial effects of the Pills are so permanent that the whole system is renewed, the organs of digestion strengthened, and a free respiration promoted. They expel from the secretive organs and the circulation the morbid matter which produces inflammation, pain, fever, debility, and physical decay-thus annihilating, by their purifying properties, the virulence of the most painful and devastating diseases.

LORD GRENVILLE'S 'NUGE METRICE,' 1824. I have in my possession a copy of this work inscribed "The Reverend Archdeacon Wrangham from the Author," in Lord Grenville's handwriting. In it are inserted two autograph letters to the archdeacon, a translation into Latin of the third and fourth stanzas of Collins's 'Dirge,' which, as will be seen, Lord Grenville had omitted, having translated the poem from memory.* There is besides a translation of Waller's "Go, lovely rose,' another of an Italian dialogue between Love and Spring, together with Lord Nugent's answer, to which Lord Grenville alludes. These trifles, which have not been printed, seem of sufficient interest, coming as they do from the pen of this distinguished statesman and accomplished scholar, to find a place in 'N. & Q.' Archdeacon Wrangham, to whom they were addressed, was a well-known scholar and the author of British Plutarch,' containing the "Lives of the Most Eminent Persons of Great Britain and Ireland from the Accession of Henry VIII. to the Present Time. 6 vols. 8vo. 1816." He was for many years Vicar of Hunmanby, Yorkshire, where his valuable library was collected.

This will account for the omission of the two stanzas in the printed edition which hitherto has been unexplained.

Charles Street, May 1, 1825.

SIR,-In putting aside some papers to-day your letter and the beautiful poetry which it incloses, came again under my eye. When I first received it, the admirable Greek version of Collins's dirge reminded me that in translating that little poem from memory, I had left ou two stanzas, and I then attempted to supply the defi ciency. The knowledge that you are one of the few who derive pleasure from these amusements now so unfashionable (for there is a fashion in litterature as in everything else), tempts me to send you these additional lines, for insertion if you think it worth while, in your copy of the 'Nuga Metricæ.' And I add to them, as a sort of pendant to the dirge, an attempt to versify Waller's 'Rose,' by far the best to my taste of all his compositions.-I am Sir your most faithful and obed. humble eert. GRENVILLE. The Revd. Archd" Wrangham. Collins's Dirge, stanzas iii, and iv.,—
