[OLIVER & BOYD, Printers, Edinburgh.]


THE curious" Antiquarian Notices," by the learned author of the article "On the Nature of the Office of Mareschal," and the letter relating to the compilation of a Gaelic Dictionary, will appear in our next.

The articles—" On the Utility of studying the Ancient and Foreign Languages"-" On the Origin of Whig and Tory"—" On the Detrition of Mountains, &c."-and the Review of a recent elegant Poem, transmitted by A. D. are under consideration.

The Review of Dr Irving's Life of Buchanan has been unavoidably postponed.

The continuation of the "Memorandums of a View-Hunter,"—and the Letter relating to the proposed New Translation of the Psalms, were too late for insertion.

The obliging 'Hints' from N-'s, and the Additional Communications from 'Strila,' and from "An unknown Friend," have been duly received :—Also, several Gypsey Notices, which will be carefully attended to in our next.

[ocr errors]

The paper on 'Craniology,' by Peter Candid,' would have appeared in our present Number if it had not contained some improper personal allusions.

The "Memoirs of the House of Graham," in the shape in which they have been sent us, have nothing more to recommend them than the good intentions of the author.

The paper under the title of "Irish Literature," which announces the intended early publication of an " Irish-English Dictionary," in one volume quarto, by Edward O'Reilly," was omitted to be noticed in another place. From the same quarter we have received some extracts from a new work, of which the object seems to be to prove an affinity between the Hebrew and Irish languages; but we know not well what to make of them, and our correspondent has not condescended to assist us.

THE learned Selden has traced the etymology of MARSHAL under all its variations of Mariscaldus, Marscaldus, and Marscalcus, from the Teutonic 66 schalk," a servant, and "maere,' a horse, or rather a mare-the mare, it seems, being always the better horse*, and therefore very properly used generically to designate the speciesadding, that the term strictly describes a person who busied himself about horses and the manege.

This popular derivation is, in some degree, countenanced by the epithet having been applied to innkeepers, grooms, farriers, and horse-doctors, as is proved by sundry passages from Becanust, the capitularies of Charlemagne, and other authorities. It is, however, at the same time, evinced to have very early received other significations, having no reference either to the above quadrupeds or to their at
