Athenæum :-"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
leave a strong impression on the memory of those who read them."

Coughs, Influenza.-The soothing properties of these medica-
ments render them well worthy of trial in all diseases of the respiratory
organs. In common colds and influenza the Pills, taken internally, and
the Ointment rubbed over the chest and throat, are exceedingly effi-

safest, and surest. Holloway's Pills purify the blood, remove all
obstacles to its free circulation through the lungs, relieve the engorged
air tubes, and render respiration free, without reducing the strength,
irritating the nerves, or depressing the spirits; such are the surest
means of saving suffering when any one is afflicted with colds, coughs,
bronchitis, and other chest complaints, by which so many persons are
seriously and permanently afflicted in most countries.

Notices to Correspondents.
Various notes have appeared from time to time
in N. & Q.' having indirect bearing on this sub-
ject, but none, so far as I know, setting out any
exact comparison of names in use at different
periods. I do not, therefore, seek to connect this
note with anything that has gone before, but in
examining the registers of this parish (namely,
of Lapworth, twelve miles from Birmingham) over
a long period of years, it seemed to me that such
a comparison as I now make would be of general
interest, and might be thought worthy of the rather
extended space it must occupy in the only paper
to which it seems by right to belong.

In the previous century we had the form
Phillippe as a male name, we now have Phillip as
a female name.
