The two Grants were, indeed, brothers. their University course they ran pari passu. In 1801 (Henry Martyn's year) one was third wrangler, and the other fourth. In after life Robert was Governor-General of Bombay, and Charles Secretary of State for the Colonies: and while one wrote such hymns as that in question, and "By thy birth and early years," the other raised his University in sacred poetry into rivalry with

Oxford.

In 1803, Heber recited "Palestine"; and 1806, Charles recited his beautiful poem "On the Restoration of Learning in the East." In the remarks on these two poems, the reviewer awards the palm of genius to Grant, and of taste to Heber. S. S. S.

In 1861 I corresponded with Lord Glenelg on the subject of his brother Sir Robert Grant's hymns, when his lordship distinctly informed me that Sir Robert was author of that hymn. His lordship presented me with the little publication of his brother's Hymns, edited by himself, in which the hymn in question is included-two versions being given, both from Sir Robert's MSS.

ONE ALPHABET FOR EUROPE (3rd S. x. 329, 400.)-In the account given in The Times of the visit of the Sclavonian deputies to St. Petersburg in May, it was stated that, in the conversation which took place on their reception at court, the Empress deigned to express her regret that the Sclavonian people had not a common alphabet and orthography. As Russia professes a strong desire to cultivate friendly relations with the widely-scattered races of a kindred descent, would not the patriotic wish of the Empress be best realised by the adoption of the Roman character as the common alphabet? The use of a very few years would be sufficient to prove the immense advantages of the new system in an empire with such a great future before it as Russia. Professor Max Müller says, in his Surrey of Languages, that

"It has been the policy of Russia to support the introduction of her alphabet among the nations which in the course of time she expects to absorb. Still it is a

Afterwards the moderate demands of Alaric had sworn by the head of the emperor. were rejected, because Jovius and the courtiers

Εἰ μὲν γὰρ πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν τετυχήκει δεδομένος ὅρκος, ἦν ἂν ὡς ἐικὸς παριδεῖν, ἐνδιδόντας τῇ τοῦ Θεοῦ φιλανθρωπία, τὴν ἐπὶ τῇ ἀσεβείᾳ συγγνώμην· ἐπεὶ δὲ κατὰ τῆς τοῦ βασιλέως ὀμωμύκεσαν κεφαλῆς, οὐκ εἶναι θεμιτὸν αὐτοῖς εἰς τον τοσοῦτον ὅρκον ἐξαμαρτεῖν. τοσοῦτον ἐφλύαττεν, ὁ νοῦς τῶν τότε τὴν πολιτείαν οἰκονομούντων, Θεοῦ προνοίας σrepnuévwv.-Id., cap. 51, p. 509.

The above is substantially in Gibbon (Decline and Fall, chap. xxxi.), and it may seem impertinent to quote any other writer when he can be referred to; but I think that in "N. & Q." we should cite originals when we can.

"A more striking picture there could not be imagined than the beautiful English face of the girl," &c. And in a foot-note

"WHEN ADAM DELVED," ETC. (3rd S. xi. 192,323, 429, 486.)-MR. WYLIE'S alteration of the word loam for lame agrees with the accounts we have of Adam in several MSS. Thus the Harleian, 1704, says that Adam was made of "viij thinges," one of which was (6 slyme of the earth." Another source also confirms the reading earth; for Master of Oxford's Catechism, published by Elfric Society, in answer to the query, "Whereof was Adam made? of viij thingis, A. The first of erthe," &c. Lastly, a MS. in the Bodleian reads erthe: three pretty fair evidences in MR. WYLIE's favour. I should be very glad to find any allusion to Adam's lameness; in several MSS. that I have searched there is no mention of it.

ST. MATTHEW (3rd S. xi. 399, 469, 511.) — MR. C. T. RAMAGE is perfectly right in supposing that the saying "Matthai am letzten" refers to the last verse of the Gospel of St. Matthew, and that the real phrase is "Matthäi am letzten sein," although Matthai im letzten sein" would be more correct, meaning "im letzten Vers." Since I wrote (p. 469) I have inquired into the matter, but have not been able to find out who first used this very original expression. HERMIT.

CROMWELL FAMILY (3rd S. xi. 325, 467.) — I am unable to give your correspondent, JAMES WAYLEN, any further information on the claim of the family of Markham to be descended from Oliver Cromwell; but I think that he will admit that on the authority of Mark Noble it is more probable that Mrs. Fennel was the child of Gen. Fleetwood's second than of his first marriage, inasmuch as Noble satisfactorily accounts for all the issue of the first marriage, whereas there is no certainty as to the issue of the second, though it is most probable that there was issue. (See Noble, vol. ii. p. 368, 3rd ed., 1787.)

WILLIAM WICKHAM. COMMUNION (3rd S. xi. 518.)-I have always understood that communion is derived from communis, and that from an ante-classical word, munis (the root of immunis), which word is probably connected with munus, and bears the meaning of "performing a duty," or "having a duty to perform." Vox may refer to White & Riddle's Latin Dictionary, articles "Communio" and "Munis." SCRUTATOR.

If Vox will turn up to this word in the last edition of Webster's Dictionary, he will there find its derivation given from con and munus. HERMIT.

In every land

I saw, wherever light illumineth,
Beauty and anguish walking hand in hand
The downward slope to death."

(A Dream of Fair Women.) Surely nobody can read Dan Chaucer's "Legend of Good Women" without thus moralizing, though Chaucer himself (so far as I remember) did not express the moral.

Byron refers to the same notion in his

"Italia! oh Italia! thou who hast
The fatal gift of beauty," &c.
(Childe Harold, iv. 42.)

I am surprised, however, at MR. KEIGHTLEY'S acquiescence in the other portion of Fielding's statement, viz. that "Male beauty is fortunate." Narcissus, Adonis, Absalom, and a long train of handsome heroes suggest themselves in proof of the contrary.

Indeed I had considered it almost a maxim with the poets (classic and romantic), that Fortune was hostile to Beauty without regard to sex; Goddess Fortune being at lasting feud with Goddess Na

REYNOLDS (3rd S. xi. 467.)-In my "abbreviated sketch," Robert Reynolds is made the son of both the wives of his father, James, instead of being son of the first wife only; and the Chief Baron is in a like predicament, instead of being the son of the second wife ouly. The Chief Baron's second wife is called "Rainboid" instead of "Rainbird." And, finally, John Hatley is marked as the eldest child of Robert Reynolds, instead of being named

as the husband of Isabella Reynolds, the eldest
sister of Chief Justice Sir James Reynolds.

NOTES ON BOOKS, ETC.

Gesta Regis Henrici Secundi Benedicti Abbatis. The Chronicle of the Reign of Henry II. and Richard I. A.D. 1169-1192, known commonly under the name of Benedict of Peterborough. Edited from the Cotton MSS. by William Stubbs, M.A. In two volumes. (Longman.) The value of Benedictus Abbas has long been made known by Hearne's edition, now extremely scarce, and to the great value of which the learned Librarian of Lambeth bears generous testimony in his Introduction to the work before us. That introduction will be read with great interest, more especially Mr. Stubbs's critical remarks on the distinction and comparative value of Chronicles and Histories. Nor will the Preface to the second volume, in which the Editor sketches the character and position of Henry II., be found less worthy of attention. The present is far from the least valuable of the important series of historical documents to which it belongs.

Antenicene Christian Library. Vols. III. and IV. (Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1867.)

If ever the jarring sections of Christendom are to be brought into unison, it must be by the common resolution stare super antiquas vias. And therefore we cannot but heartily welcome this attempt of our Scottish brethren to put before the ordinary reader, in a vernacular dress, the whole body of Antenicene Theology. Moreover, the originals are well rendered; and the contents of these two volumes are of more than average interest-comprising the works of Tatian the Assyrian, and Theophilus of Antioch; the religious Romance known as the Clementine Recognitions, in which St. Peter and St. Barnabas appear as dramatis persona; and the writings of

Clement of Alexandria.

The Practical Angler; or, the Art of Trout-Fishing. More particularly applied to Clear Water. By W. Č. Stewart. Fifth edition, revised and enlarged. (A. & C. Black.)

It is not more than a few years since we first commended Mr. Stewart's Practical Angler to our piscatorial readers, and lo! a proof that the work deserved their attention, we have to chronicle the appearance of this its fifth edition, revised and enlarged,-enlarged certainly, but still not too large to be the Angler's companion by the brook side.

Our Constitution: an Epitome of our Chief Laws and Systems of Government. With an Introductory Essay by Charles Ewald, F.S.A., of Her Majesty's Record Office. (Warne & Co.)

Intended to occupy an intermediate position between strictly technical and legal Essays, and the more popular Handbooks on the same subject, this little book is well calculated to fulfil that object. Mr. Ewald, who, as one of the Civil Service, we are glad to see applying himself to such purpose as the work before us, will add to the utility of future editions by specifying precisely the statutes and chapters of the acts to which he refers. Tennysoniana. Notes, Biliographical and Critical, on the Early Poems of Alfred and C. Tennyson, &c. (B. M. Pickering.)

A little volume which we can cordially recommend to

those of our readers who deem the "growth of a poet's mind an interesting study;" and more especially to those who admire and love to trace the progress of Tennyson. Sermons preached in Country Churches by R. Drummond Rawnsley, M.A. Second Series. (Hatchard & Co. 1867.)

A set of very sensible and useful discourses; never wanting in solid matter, and yet not above the apprehension of a country congregation.
