When the flames were about him, Servetus exclaimed, "Jesus, thou Son of the eternal God, have pity on me." Whether this is heresy or not, is a question of theology, and, as such, inadmissible to "N. & Q." but surely it is not infidelity. H. B. Č.

have the expression vivo xpua, signifying a
colour mixed of black, red, and white (but with
most black)-a brownish grey (vide Liddell and
Scott in verbo). If, therefore, Franklin's scrap-
book were such as described, the term, though
perhaps not over felicitous, would not be inappro-
priate. But how M. E. can be beguiled into the
delusion of regarding it as what he calls the first
supine of fusco, I cannot anywise understand.
Fusco is of the first conjugation, the supine active
of which would be fuscatum. Fuscum is clearly
the adjective agreeing with opus, or some such
neuter substantive understood. Under the word

A PRINCE OF WALES'S BROOCH (4th S. i. 10, 47.) This title for the trinket in question is totally inaccurate. There can be no doubt that it must be referred to George III. during the lifetime of his father. The so-called trident is neither more nor less than the label, which Nisbet states is a brisure upon the armorial ensigns of the eldest sons whilst their fathers are in life. The substitution of two for the three feathers of Wales is

"An Act of Parliament to repeat or alter the Act of Uniformity in England, or to establish episcopacy in ciently valid and binding, and, notwithstanding such an Scotland, would doubtless in point of authority be suffi act, the union would continue unbroken. Nay, each of these measures might be safely and honourably pursued, if respectively agreeable to the sentiments of the English Church or Kirk in Scotland. But, it should seem neither prudent nor perhaps consistent with good faith, to venture upon either of these steps, by a spontaneous exertion of the inherent powers of parliament, or at the instance of mere individuals. So sacred, indeed, are the laws above mentioned (for protecting such church and the English liturgy) esteemed, that in the Regency Acts,

Read "abolish episcopacy in Ireland," for "establish episcopacy in Scotland," and there is an opinion given by one of our greatest constitutional writers, "ante litem motam." Such an abstract opinion, from such a source, is deserving of great attention be it right or wrong.

J. WILKINS, B.C.L. TALBOT, EARL of Shrewsbury (4th S. ii. 32.)— Although it was said by another great captain (the Duke of Marlborough, I believe), that all he had ever learnt of the history of England was in Shakespeare, I repeat with MR. JOHN WOODWARD that "it may be worth noting, that Shakespeare is mistaken with regard to the order of St. Michael as well as the Golden Fleece. As Byron says, I like to be particular in dates." Now John Talbot, first Earl of Shrewsbury, was killed at the battle of Castillon, near Bordeaux, in 1453,

Though Tasciovanus is not mentioned by the Roman historians, these coins show that Cunobelinus was his son. We find another of these petty princes, Eppilus, styled COM.

CRAUFORD TAIT RAMAGE.

CHRONICLE BY JOHN DOUGLAS (4th S. i. 508.) I have never been able to trace the present depository of the Chronicle said to have been written by this monk of Glastonbury. A copy was in the possession of Thomas Rawlinson, in the sale catafogue of whose MSS. (1734, p. 18) it is entered

as follows:

"254. A Chronicle of England, entituled, The Me

morials, Chronicles written by John Douglas, Munke of Glastenburye Abbaye. On velom."

In a copy of this Catalogue in the Bodleian Library, which contains the prices and purchasers' names in MS., there is the following entry: "West, pd 38. 3d." The MSS. collected by James West, President of the Royal Society, appear to have been all sold to the Earl of Shelburne (afterwards Marquis of Lansdowne), and are consequently now to be found among the Lansdowne MSS. in the British Museum, but this Chronicle is not entered in the Catalogue of that Collec

tion. The Catalogue of West's Library, as sold by auction in 1773, contains only printed books. W. D. MACRAY.

INSCRIPTION AT MOUNT STUART: HEART OF PRINCE CHARLES (4th S. i. 559.)-The inscription over the old door-way at Mount-Stuart cannot possibly have been written by the Prince "when in concealment in the isle," as it is matter of history that he never was either in or near the island of Bute at any time during his expedition of 1745-6. C. E. D. CROMWELL'S COFFIN-PLATE (4th S. i. 553.)— This interesting relic is now in the possession of Earl De Grey and Ripon, who is himself descended from the Cromwell family. X.

THE ATHANASIAN CREED (4th S. ii. 35.)—The inference drawn by MR. R. J. ALLEN from the words of Bishop Grossteste is incorrect. The bishop says that the faithful should all have a plain knowledge of the faith, as contained in the greater and lesser creed,-meaning the Nicene and that of the Apostles,-"et in tractatu qui dicitur Quicunque vult." Now, though he uses the term "tractatus," it does not at all follow that he considered the Athanasian as not a creed. He calls it a treatise, on account of its much greater length, and more explicit language; and had he lived a few centuries later, he would perhaps have applied the same name to the creed of Pope Pius IV., which is longer still. But there can be no doubt that the formulary under the name of St. Athanasius was always designated by the Church as a Symbolum Fidei, a creed, or profession of faith -a very different thing from a mere treatise or dissertation. At the earliest public mention of the Athanasian Creed, which was at the Council of Autun in the seventh century, it was ordered in the very first canon, that all priests and clerics should know by heart the Symbol attributed to St. Athanasius. The church approved of it,proposed it to the belief of all the faithful, and decreed that it should be publicly recited in the divine office. All this proves that it was of much higher authority than a mere treatise, or dissertation; and we should search in vain for any such distinction between this and the other creeds, as Grossteste is unfairly supposed to have

intended.

F. C. H. BRADSHAWE THE REGICIDE (4th S. ii. 34.)— Your correspondent M. J.'s legend respecting the Lord High President's (who ob. Oct. 31, 1659,) having died at a lone house on Baddeley Edge, in the Staffordshire Moorlands, has highly interested me-since, though born and long resident in the immediate neighbourhood, I had never previously heard of it. There is in Longsdon, close to Leek, an ancient grange called "Bradshaw," with which local tradition connects the regicide, but I have

never been able to trace it to any authentic source. Temp Eliz. 3, Thomas de Bradeschawe was sworn a feudatory forester of the Forest of Leeke; and I find Roger Bradschagh witness to a deed bearing date A.D. 1431.

There is an interesting account of Bradshaw Hall, near Chapel-en-le-Frith, the cradle of the family, at p. 145 of the second volume of the Reliquary; but the name is of such frequent occurrence in the sister shires of Chester, Derby, and Stafford, that it is hard to say from which particular branch "poor Jack" actually descended.

"RECOLLECTIONS OF MY LIFE, BY MAXIMILIAN, EMPEROR OF MEXICO" (4th S. i. 535, 563.)-As I ventured to communicate to you the doubts which had arisen in my mind as to the authenticity of this work from the manner of its publication and its contents, I feel bound to tell you the result of inquiries I have made in quarters certain to be informed in Germany.

The work, as now published at Leipsig and translated into English, was, it appears, printed for private circulation by Prince Maximilian while in retirement at Miramar. He then gave, or sold, the copyright to a publishing house at Leipsig; but when it was almost ready for publication, he revoked the contract for its publication, and paid the firm 2000 guilders for the expenses they had incurred. This was before he left Miramar.

Nothing further was done by Prince Maximilian, that I can ascertain, for its publication, and so the matter rested when he perished in Mexico. Subsequently to his death communications took place between the publishers and the Court of Vienna. They terminated in authority for its publication being given to them.

milian.

It is, I am assured, published as originally printed for private circulation by Prince MaxiCURIO. SACK BUT (4th S. ii. 42.) — It is truly observed by MR. NICHOLSON that the French drew a jocular phrase from the resemblance between Ebrius and Ebræus. "In French slang," he continues, drunken man was one qui savait l'ébreu." An amusing illustration occurs in the old French song which begins thus:

Being, however, just at present enjoying an outing in the country, I have not my copy of the Arundines at hand in order to give a precise reference to the page, and the name of the translator of the poem into Latin Sapphics. Be it observed that the editions of the Arundines Cami vary very materially, and perhaps the poems in question may not have a place in all of them. The last, to my knowledge, underwent considerable alterations at the hands of its late accomplished editor, Archdeacon Drury.

Miscellaneous.

NOTES ON BOOKS, ETC.

The whole Works of William Browne of Tavistock and of the Inner Temple. Now first collected and edited, with a Memoir of the Poet, and Notes by W. Carew Hazlitt of the Middle Temple. The First Volume. (Printed for the Roxburghe Library.)

Nearly a century has elapsed since Tom Davies gave to the world the only collective edition of the writings of this admirable poet. In this good work Davies was assisted by Dr. Farmer, the Rev. Thomas Warton, and other admirers of Browne's genius. In 1815 Sir Egerton Brydges published a volume of Browne's hitherto inedited poetry, which Park pronounced to be even more marked by a peaceful delicacy and pure morality" than those already given to the world. Under these circumstances, we think Mr. Hazlitt has shown good judgment in including the whole works of Browne in the Roxburghe Library. This first volume, which is very handsomely printed, contains, in addition to Britannia's Pastorals, a Life of the Poet, which Mr. Hazlitt's industry and researches have enabled him to detail much more fully than his predecessor, Brydges. The work will be welcome to all lovers of Old English Poetry.

The Annual Register: a Review of Public Events at Home and Abroad for the Year 1867. New Series. (Rivington)

The Annual Register now stands alone as a permanent and available record of the more remarkable events at home and abroad, and the gradual development of the political history of this and other foreign countries; and we are, therefore, glad to record the appearance of the volume for 1867, which appears to be ably and carefully compiled.

BOOKS RECEIVED.

We have a number of small books which require a few words of notice. First and foremost among them is Warne's Chandos Shakespeare: Plays, Poems, Glossary, &c. reprinted from the Original Edition, and compared with all recent Commentators, printed very neatly and legibly, and sold for one shilling; and from the same publisher, and at the same remarkably low price, The Poetical Works of Longfellow. Milton and Machiavelli, two Essays by Lord Macaulay, printed with great neatness and distinctness, and published at sixpence. We have received from Messrs. Lockwood a volume which will be acceptable to many-Instructions in Wood-carving for Amateurs, with Hints on Design, by a Lady. From Mr. Walker of Leeds, an amusing little volume, Old Leeds its Bygones and Celebrities, by an Old Leeds Cropper. And from Messrs. Moffat of Dublin, St. Patrick's Ruction, by Burney Bradey; an amusing bit of rollicking Irish fun and rhyme.

A few guidebooks have also reached us, which we may make a note of for the benefit of "intending" tourists, viz. St. David's: its Early History and Present State, by an Ecclesiologist (Bemrose); Bemrose's Guide to Matlock, Bakewell, Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, &c., with Lists of Wild Flowers, Ferns, &c., by John Hicklin; and Through the Peak, between London and Manchester, or Tourist's Guide between London and Manchester via Derby, Matlock, and Buxton (Bemrose).

LIBRARIANSHIP OF THE CORPORATION OF LONDON: LAMBETH LIBRARY.-The salary of Mr. Overall, who fills this office with so much credit to himself and with so much advantage to all who have occasion to consult the Library entrusted to his charge, has just been increased from 2007. to 3007. a year, with an annual increase of 101. until it reaches 4007. per annum. The salary of his assistant, Mr. Welch, is in like manner to be gradually increased to 2007. a-year.

As nothing has yet been done, we believe, on the subject of the Librarianship of Lambeth, we venture to recommend the liberal conduct of the Fathers of the City to the consideration of those who may have the settlement of this question.
