HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT and PILLS.

I Diseases of the skin.-No case of disease of the skin, be its nature what it may, has failed to be benefited when these potent remedies have been properly applied. In scrofulous and scorbutio affeotions they are especially serviceable. Scurvy, eruptions, and glandular swellings, which had resisted all other modes of treatment and raduslly become worse from year to year, have been completely cured by Holloway's cooling Ointment and purifying Pills, which root out the disease from the blood itself and leave tbe consitution free from every morbid taint. In the nursery Holloway's Ointment is simply invaluable; it will give ease in sprains, contusions, burns, scalds, and infantile eruptions, and may always safely be applied by any ordinary attendant.

THE NEW DICTIONARY OP NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY. May I appeal to such of your readers as are ■willing to give me help in the new " Dictionary of National Biography " which I hare undertaken to editf

I have now in type a list of the names intended for insertion under the letter A. I shall have great pleasure in forwarding this list to any one who will read it in order to mark errors and omissions, or with a view to contributing. I have already promises from many competent historical authorities. I am, however, very anxious to get the help of a3 many students of special departments of biography as possible, in order that justice may be done to cames in all classes, and especially to the less conspicuous names.

Many of your readers possess the kind of knowledge which would be most useful to me, and I shall be greatly obliged to any who will communicate with me. Leslie Stephen.

BISHOP BURNET'S CIVIL WAR COLLECTIONS.

A few years ago I purchased from a friend a MS. volume, a notice of which will probably interest some of your readers. It is a small quarto volume, in the original parchment covers, containing one hundred and eighty-three leaves, closely yet very plainly written on one side only. The handwriting is that of the end of the seventeenth century or beginning of the eighteenth, and the contents consist of letters, reports, and other documents copied from the State Papers and relating to the Civil War. These documents extend from Oct. 3, 1645, to Jan. 5, 1645/6, a period of three months. On the inside of the cover is the well-known book-plate of "Gilbert Burnet, Lord Bishop of Salisbury, Chancellor of the most Noble Order of the Carter," and above the book-plate is written in ink "V. 20," which I take to mean vol. xx. If each volume contained transcripts of the State Papers for three months only, the series would commence about 1640, and no doubt it would be continued to 1648, or perhaps later. If these surmises are correct, the whole series of MSS. must have extended to quite thirty-two volumes, if not more, and from this set this odd volume, vol. xx., has become detached. It would be very interesting to know if any other volumes of the series are known to be preserved anywhere, and it is partly with that object that I send you this note. Judging from this one volume, the whole series, if it could be found, would be of singular value -and interest, and to the future historian of the Civil War it would be almost priceless. This volume alone contains about one hundred and fifty documents, transcripts of State Papers, &c, of the most varied interest, as will appear from the following list of the first twenty :—
