HOLLOWAY'S PILLS. - Weary of Life.

Derangement of the liver is one of the most efficient causes of dangerous diseases and the most prolific of those melancholy forebodings which are worse than death itself. A few doses of these noted Pills act magically in dispelling low spirits and repelling the covert attacks made on the nerves by excessive heat, impure atmospheres, over-indulgence, or exhausting excitement. The most shattered constitution may derive benefit from Holloway's Pills, which will regulate disordered action, brace the nerves, increase the energy of the intellectual faculties, and revive the failing memory. By attentively studying the instructions for taking these Pills, and obediently putting them in practice, the most despondent will soon feel confident of a perfect recovery.

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.

A green bag full of lies

All proved to be spies.

The Lords began to stare
To see their precious evidence
All vanish'd into air.

HISTORY IN POTTERY AT BRIGHTON.

(Concluded from p. 45.)

Other portraits are of Lord Chatham, Hon. W. Pitt, Wilkes ("Wilkes and Liberty"), Alderman Beckford, the Bristol Philanthropists, Reynolds, and Colston, Wilberforce, Leinster (the honoured and great), Brougham, Russell, Cobden, &c.; some of these are on Bellarmine or Grey Beard jugs. These jugs, of which the neck is formed by the head of the man and the lower part by his body, were died in 1621. The cardinal having, by his deterderisively named after Cardinal Bellarmine, who mined and bigoted opposition to the Reformed Religion, made himself obnoxious in the Low Countries, became naturally on object of derision and contempt with the Protestants, who, among other modes of showing their detestation of the man, seized on the potter's art to exhibit his short stature, his hard features, and his rotund figure, to become the jest of the ale-house and the by-word of the people.

Later on, naturally, these jugs were made to represent any noted character, though the original name "Bellarmine" sticks to them. One, of Lord John Russell, has the words

The true spirit of Reform, and another, of Daniel O'Connell,

The Irish Reform Cordial.

To ye Pious Memory

of Queen Caroline.
1738.

The army and navy, as would be expected, figure largely in the collection. There are numerous portraits of various great commanders: Wel

lington, Nelson, Rodney, Keppel, Wolfe, &c. There are several caricatures of Bonaparte, and many instances of the contempt in which the Britisher of former days held the French.

at his post; or Boney's peep into Walmer Castle," A large jug has the inscription, "The Centinel and below is an amusing sketch. From behind the walls of Walmer Castle a sentry starts up, "Who about, citoyens, for there will be no good to be goes there?" A boat full of Frenchmen is approaching. "Ab, Begar! dat man alive still? Turn done. I know his tricks of old!"

Another has a monkey in field marshal's uniform, running after a bull-dog ("John Bull" on the collar) with a large bone, inscribed "Malta," in his mouth. Dog is saying, for you!" and the monkey, "Eh, you Bull Dog, There, Monkey, that take dat myself. I vas good mind to lick you but vat you carry off dat Bone for? I vas going to for dem dam Tooths." Below is, "The Bone of Contention, or the English Bull-dog and the Corsican Monkey."

A third jug has a sketch of "Facing the Enemy"; a very jolly Englishman with a "John Bull" dog, looks at a shivering, small Frenchman, and says, "I declare it would be charity to give the poor fellow a meals victuals [sic] before I fight him!

The Frenchman remarks, "Begar! me no like de look of dat Jean Bool!"

The following illustrations on a large jug are still more anti-French. One is of an Englishman with oaken staff and sturdy dog, facing Bonaparte, behind whom is the Devil. Bonaparte says, Oh, vat a terrable Jean Bull, me be half afraid, much rather make Peace now, I have obtained the Crown. To reign is worth ambition tho' in Hell." The Englishman says, "Come on you Murdering Corsican Tyrant, this Sprig of Oak will soon do your business, and my companion shall fight your there behind you.' The Devil says, "Fight him, dam him, fight him, Bony; you'll sooner come home, and you know how impatiently we all wait for you." The other picture on the reverse side is called "Bonaparte's last shift." He stands with small attendant devils around him, all with scrolls issuing from their mouths, "Murderer," "Poisoner," "Fraud," "Deceit." He is saying, "What will become of me? My ships taken. Myself escaped on a Plank. I who have done such wonders must now be drowned in salt water. O! what horrors does my imagination picture to me now-down I sink, Heaven will be avenged." Below is the Devil, pulling him down, and saying, "Thy time is expired; well thou hast executed thy Commission, and well thou shalt be rewarded."

To turn to the naval heroes. Many of the pieces of china in this department will be recognized by those who saw them in the Naval Exhibition of 1890. A pint mug has a picture of a war-ship (Duncan's, the Venerable), and the words:

Vain are the boasts of Belgich's sons When faced by British ships and guns; Tho de Winter does in Autumn come, Brave Duncan brings his harvest home. Among the many portraits of Nelson is one on a jug, supported by two cherubs, one with trumpet to sound his praises, one with bay leaves to crown him; a ribbon with "Battle of the Nile," and below a plan of the order of the English and French ships during that battle.

[ocr errors]

Hardships of sailors in the piping times of peace is shown on a jug inscribed "The Neglected Tar.' The picture represents rich people looking from a window and giving money to a man and boy with dancing dogs. A melancholy looking sailor stands by in rags; below are the verses:

I sing the British seaman's praise
A theme renown'd in story:
It well deserves more polished lays
Oh! 'tis your boast and glory.

When mad-brained war spreads death around
By them you are protected;
But when in peace the nation's found

These bulwarks are neglected,

There are representations of favourite vessels, as "Success to the Lucy, 1792," and "The Mariner's Compass." Some mugs bear the signals used at Bidstone Lighthouse, near Liverpool, with the flags

and names of shipowners, when the trade was in its infancy. One has a ship in full sail, and below is written:May Peace with Plenty

On our Nation smile & Trade with Commerce bless the British Isle.

Turning from ship to compass is a short step, and on one jug we have the full history of the latter. A compass is drawn, with "Come box the compass" on a scroll above; below is a man with a measuring rod, a ship, and the words :

"Invented by Murphy. a Dutchman, A.D. 1229, first exhibited at Venice, 1260. Improved by Giora, of Naples, 1302; its declination discovd by Hartman, 1538." On the other side, we suppose to point the moral that a married couple should try to steer their Matrimony and course through life well, is "" Courtship." The two faces are so drawn that one time they look smiling at each other, but they look grumpy. The when the jug is reversed, mouths, seen one way, curve upwards, laughing, seen the other, downwards, and sulky:

When two fond fools together meet
Each look gives joy, each kiss so sweet;
But wed how cold and cross they be
Turn upside down, and then you'll see.
That form once o'er, with angry brow
The married pair both peevish grow:
All night and day they scold and brawl;
She calls him ass, he calls her fool.

A very amusing set of figures is that of a crossing sweeper with his broom, the same man in different attitudes and expressions. They might be entitled : 1. Quite done up.

2. A deep drink-satisfying.

3. Pocketing the bottle: glow of content.

(Fate cannot harm him—he has dined to-day.) 4. Preparing the pipe: perfect bliss.

The collection has its Chamber of Horrors. There may be seen figures of William Corder and his sweetheart, Maria Martin, whom he murdered (1827), and buried in the Red Barn, which is represented in a separate piece; this barn, twelve miles from Ipswich, has only lately been pulled down. The murder was brought to light by the girl's step-mother dreaming three times consecutively of the murder and secret burial, which caused inquiries to be made. Another murder, connected also with a dream, is that of Mr. Percival, the Premier (1812), by John Bellingham, in the House of Commons; the dreamer was a Cornish gentleman, entirely unconnected with either party, and who had never even seen the House. Thurtell is there, who took part in the notorious murder in 1823, near St. Alban's, and from whose trial dates the oft-quoted reason of a man being respectable "because he kept a horse and gig "; also the cook being asked if supper was "postponed" the night of the murder; answered "No: it was pork."

A blue and white jug has a picture of the guillo
