Horace and Virgil, but "that mixture of red, brown, grey, and yellow, which should answer to flavus." How far this mixture may correspond with the modern colour, umber, I cannot vouch. The Tiber, it may be noted, was in part the boundary between Umbria and Etruria.
I believe that the effigy of Locrine or Locrinus, the antagonist of Humber, King of the Huns, appears with those of equally veritable monarchs of ancient Britain, on the roof of the chancel of St. Mary's church, Beverley.
In The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur (part II. ch. cxlvii.), we read that "Sir Palomides sailed even along Humber unto the coast of the sea, where was a fair castle." Can E. S. W. say if the locality of this castle is as easily to be identified as that of Camelot ? Hull.

AIMÉ ARGAND (4th S. ii. 98.)—A short notice of Argand is given in the Biographical Dictionary of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. The writer (Mr. J. T. Stanesby) refers to the Biographie Universelle, and to the Penny Magazine, as his authorities. The specification of Argand's patent (along with all other specifications extant) has been printed by order of the Honourable the Commissioners of Patents, and may be obtained, price threepence, at the Great Seal Patent Office, Southampton Buildings, Holborn.
It is dated July 3, 1784 (1425, Old Law), and the patentee is described as "Amé Argand, of Great Marlborough Street, Soho, Gentleman."
According to Schuborth's Repertorium (p. 501), the Argand lamp has also been the subject of a French patent. The reference he gives is—

BIOGRAPHY OF THE CHEVALIER D'EON (4th S. ii.
131.) It is worth while to record for the information of E. X. that about the years 1824-8, I remember seeing a large quantity of MSS. relating to the Chevalier d'Eon, and I believe it was an autobiography. The papers had belonged to Père Elysée. They were then in the possession of Mr. Nicholas de Chenart, of 2, Frith Street, Soho. I have no doubt they were subsequently neglected and destroyed. I took up a document, which was an affidavit made at Marlborough Street, that a post-mortem examination had been made of the Chevalier, and he was certified to be a male. This paper was then given to me by a son of M. De Chenart; and at the intercession of M. Donadieu, who found a large collection of autographs (which were afterwards disposed of by public auction), I gave it to him in an exchange.
I think M. De Chenart, who was a refugee from the first French revolution, made D'Eon a set of artificial teeth. He obtained a patent in England for his teeth, which were very celebrated, and he received very extensive patronage. Frith Street at the time he resided there was one of the most fashionable localities. F. S. A.
NOTES ON BOOKS, ETC.
Memoirs of the Earls of Granard. By Admiral the Hon. John Forbes. Edited by George Arthur Hastings, Earl of Granard, K.P. (Longmans.)
The author of these interesting Memoirs, the Hon. John Forbes, who having at an early age entered the navy, attained in 1743 to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet and General of the Fleet, is honourably remembered for the manner in which he, as a Lord of the Admiralty, protested against the cruel execution of Admiral Byng. The whole tone of the Memoirs before us is indeed distinguished by the same chivalrous spirit. Indeed the book itself springs from the feeling avowed by him, that being descended from progenitors ("parents" is the phrase used by him) "distinguished for their valour and probity, and who were ennobled for their loyalty and good actions to their king and country, and indebted to them for the credit of their good reputation, it was only a debt of gratitude to collect, in the best manner he was able, some
particulars relating to them." Admiral Forbes seems to have been the worthy son of a mother whom he describes
[* Sir Thomas, no doubt, intended his figures to represent 1792; but unfortunately both compositor and reader thought they resembled 1742.-ED.]
as "pious, charitable, generous, social, who delighted in pleasing and doing good;" and of a father, the third Earl of Granard, "whose character, if justly drawn, would add lustre to any family, and dignify the noblest blood." Making every allowance for natural prejudice, it must be admitted that the Earls of Granard appear to have fairly deserved the eulogies passed upon them by their faithful chronicler and the readers of the work will, we are sure, not only share the interest which we have felt in its perusal, but agree with us that much credit is due to the present head of the family for giving to the press a record of his progenitors, which does so much credit to the highspirited men whose active lives are recorded in it; and at the same time throws a good deal of occasional light on the busy scenes of national and continental politics in which it was their fate to be engaged.
A Memoir of the Rev. Nathaniel Ward, 4.M., Author of
of Liberties; which was the first code of laws established in New England. Mr. Dean being anxious to know more than had yet appeared of the history of this learned divine-not only one of the earliest American authors, but also one whose services in compiling the laws of Massachusetts have made his name familiar to the readers of New England history-began many years ago to collect materials for a fuller account of him. This selfimposed task Mr. Dean has worked at with great perseverance and success; and in the handsome volume which he has published, the reader will find not only a very full account of Nathaniel Ward and his family, but incidentally much curious illustration of the social and political history of his time.

It cannot be laid to the charge of our literary brethren on the other side of the Atlantic, that when they undertake an investigation they spare either time, labour, or expense in working it out. Nathaniel Ward was a brother of Samuel Ward of Ipswich, the celebrated preacher-biographical and we should perhaps add, caricaturist-and seems to have shared his brother's gift as a pulpit orator. He was originally intended for the law, and indeed followed that profession for some years before he entered the ministry. His first church preferment was at Stondon Massey, Essex; but his strong Puritanism having brought him under the censure of Laud, he removed to New England in 1634; and being invited to settle at Agawam (afterwards called Ipswich, in acknowledgment of the kindness shown at Ipswich to the emigrants who took shipping from that place), he commenced officiating there in the same year. He returned to London about January, 1646-7, in which month it is believed the first edition of his best-known work, The Simple Cobbler of Agawam, was published. Before leaving America, he had the chief hand-for which his legal education especially fitted
WHEN DID THE NINETEENTH CENTURY BEGIN?

TEETH, fixed without springs, wires, or ligatures; they so perfectly resemble the natural teeth as not to be distinguished from the originals by the closest observer; they will never change colour or decay, and will be found superior to any teeth ever before used.

Decayed teeth stopped and rendered sound and useful in mastication.-52, Fleet Street.

[OLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.
These precious treasures work wonderful cures of the worst diseases which defy other treatment. Thousands have extolled them as they deserved, yet have not given them one word of praise more than they richly inerited. An attentive study of the directions wrapped round Holloway's medicaments will enable any invalid to overcome his infirmity, whether it be outwardly visible or inwardly concealed. Sores, skin diseases, inflammations, erysipelas, chest complaints, as well as most disorders of the head, heart, stomach, liver, kidneys, and bowels. may be radically removed by these means; which are no less potent in successfully contending with the oft-times fatal ulcerations of the throat, which periodically render scarlet fever and diphtheria most terrible public scourges.

The two leading points in which this work differs from ordinary editions of the English Bible are-(1) An improved form and arrangement of the Text; and (2) Emer dations of the Authorised Version. The aim has been to give to English readers the benefit of all such emendations as have the sanction of the best authorities, and at the same time to avoid ercumbering the work with any which are either doubtful or trivial. Explanations of obsolete words and translations of Hebrew and Greek proper names and phrases have also been added.
