A Lecture Delivered by Rev. G. P. i Wsmotri,
hefare the B ad Co
d atuntyTectoliers'
awl published at their request.
Objects and' their names are so
closely united, that it is diffictilt to:
separate them, 'V r ire get from the ex
ternal world sensations; by the aid
of mind these sensations become
perceptions; and these perceptions in
order to be distinguished require
names. If there, were but , one man
in the world, he might reason about
the qualities of obji•cts without nam
ing them to himself; tut we exist in
so3iety, and in order to nuderitand
'others and make ourselves under
st,sod, each object and quality must
have a name. ;
We are not surprised then to learn
th it when the Creator pieced Adam
in Paradise, his first study and em
ployment was to give names to: the
different creatures that passed before
His descendants have follotied the
tilde of their :ether; but having fin
isled the list, of animals, they have
bean giving names to each other.
At:d as with Adam not a name was
given which was not full of meaning,
or which did .not - fit the creature
named: so it may be said that all the
names given by his deacendantsbave
a meaning, and the moat of them are.
Words then have their origin in
the mind,—perceiving, comparing,
discriminating. It is not surprising
that they partake of the nature of
the mind, of which they are born—
immortality. 'The name on the mar
ble tablet lives Icing after the body
has turned to dust. The Indians
who roamed over the pathless wilds
of America, gave names to rivers,
lakes and mountains, which desig
nate them still, though those who
gave them have passed away forever.
If the proper study of mankind is
man, then proper names which rep•
resent some peculiarity of oar race,
are worthy of our,study. It is a sig
nificant fact that the Creator gave
names to some of our race. "It is .
remarkable," 'says Dr. Cummings,
"that the names of the' Patriarchs,
from Adam to Noah, present an spit•
owe of the ruin and recovery of min.
Thus : Adam (man in the image of
God); Beth, (substituted by); Enos,
(frail man); Canaan, (lamenting);
Mahalaleel, (the blessed God); Ja
red, . (shall come down); Enoch,
(teaching); Methuselah, (his death
shall send); .Lamech, (to the hum-
We); Noah, (rest or consolation).
How kind in God thud by the
name of sire and son, to perpetuate
the memory of the fall, and utter
a prophesy of a coming Saviotir eve
ry time their names were uttered:
Nor are. these the only instances of
naming by Divine authority. 1 Thns
was Isaac named, and our SaviOnr,
and John his forerunner. Abram and
Semi and 'Jacob had their names
changed, either as a memorial of
their faith, or a prophecy of the
greatness of race.
Nor .were the Hebrews the only
people who attached great iroport
sum to a name. The Romani had a
proverb, "Barium nomen, bonuni
onisn,"—a good name is al good'
omen. "In the time of Galleons,"
says Camden. "Begilianus, whO com
manded in Myriam, obtained the
empire in consequence of the deriva
tion of his name. -When it Was de
manded daring, a banquet, what was
the origin - of Regilianus, one answer•
ed a 'now,' to, reign, to be a kirig.
Another begin' to decline ' Rex,
Regis, Regilianits;" when the soldiers
began to exclaim : 'Ergo potest Rex
esse, ergo potest regere, Deus tibe regis
unnen imposuit ; ~ and so invested
him with the imperial robes."
In 'speaking on this topic, it will
be well to enquire, first, whence the
great variety of proper sum? This
—.Us -spear()
alst. From the habit originaily
adopted, of giving to an individual
bat one name. ;This we see was the
case "in the Old Testament times.
Of course there would be as many
names as there were individuals.
This practice prevailed in Christen
dom till about the jith century,
when sons took the d'iimis of their
fathers. In heathen lands children
are still named independent of their
fathers, though fathers are some
times called after their sons.
2d. As our language is derived
fr.= many languages, we derive oar
proper nameifrom these languages.
TWA :(a). From the Hebrew we
have Adam, Abel, Enoch, Noah,
Abram, Isaac, Jacob, Matthew, John,
Jt.mes, eta. (b). From '
;, the Greek
wa have Angel. Basil. Philip, Alex
at.der, George, Luke, Theodore, Otis,
Stephen, eto r (c). From the Latin,
Mark, Paul, `Miles, Oliver, Sylvester,
Victor, Ca34ar, Benedict, etc. (d).
From the French, Louis, Bailey,
Grinell, Jewett, Leman, Lisle, Pom
eroy. L'llommedien, etc. (e). From
the Dutch we have Van Buren, 'Van
Dyke, Voorhees, Vrooman, etc. (f).
From the Saxon we have Aiken, Al
bert, Alden, Ashley, Bernard, Ed
mini; tam', Halifax, Reynolds, eto.
(g). From the German, Schenk, Se
ger, Snyder, Stein, Walden, Jager,
Baum, Backman, eto. (h). From
the Gaelio, Egan, Agar, Avery, Bal
lard, -Campbell,' Camden, Carnigan,
Flanigan, etc. (i). From the Welsh,
Bowen, Bael, Banyan, Tamer, Co
nant, Crandell, Dallas, Dinsmore,
etc: (j). From the Danish, Holden,
Rankin, Ruby, Rosencrans, etc. .
Thus it will be seen that we have
drawn from ten or more languages
to make up the proper names in use
in, language. It is not to be
wondered 'at that their number is le
- 3d. Another source of proper
names was the former custom of giv
ing nicknames or sobriquets, which
have in some instances, been retain
ed as the given name of the individ
ual, or as
,the surname of the family.
To illustrate the use of surnames,
we ficid4he following amusing story
told in the Quarterly Magazine, of
what occurred in a. mining region.
An attorney's clerk waneirployed to
serve a process on one of the oddly
named persons, whose real name w as
entered with legal accuracy. The
- clerk, after a great deal of enquiry as
to the whereabouts of the party, was
about . to abandon the search, when a
young woman wbo had -witnessed
hie labors kindly volunteered to as
sist him.
1 0y, gay. Bnllyed !" cried she to
the first person met, "does thee know
a than named Adam Green ?' The
Bull-head was shaken in token of ig
.:Layabed, dost thee II"
Lie-a-bed could not solve the diffi
Stumpy, Cowskin, Spindleshanks,
Pigtail, were severally invoked; but
in Vain; and the querist fell into a
brown study, in which she remained
for some time. At length,- however,
her eyes suddenly brightened, and
slapping one of her companions on
the shoulder, she exclaimed triumph
"Dash my wig! Whoy, he means
moy klther." Then turning to the
gentleman, added, "Ye should n'ax'd
for ode Blackbird:
If his own daughter did not know
his reartame, hut descendants are
probably called " Blackbird" to this
4th. Another source of names was
the practice of incorporating the
name of son with the father'a
Thus, from Jack we get Jackson,
from John, Johnson; Richard, Rich
ardson; David, Davidson; Smith,
Smithson. In the Celtic the word
Mack or son is prefixed, as McDon
ald McKay.
the letter 0, denoting grandson,
is also prefixed, and thus other words
are formed, as O'Brien, O'Hara, o'-
Ne 1.
The Welsh prefixed Ap to denote
son; thus, David Ap Howell, was
David the sun of Howell; Evan Ap
Rees, Richard Ap Evan, John Ap
Richard. Then by abbreviating, Ap
Howell became Powell, Ap Evan be
came Bevan, Ap Rees became Price.
and Ap Richard became Prichard.
The old Normans prefixed fitz from
Latin films, a son,,, and thus we have
Fitigerald. The s in
the word Jones, Mathews, flu,ghs, is
an abßreviation of son, and denotes
the son of John, the son of Matthew
and the son.of Hugh.
sth. Another fruitful source of sur
names is the practice of giving to a
person the name of the country
whence he migrated or where be
lives : as English;- Scott, Irish,
French; Fleming from Flanders,
Burgoyne from Burgundy, Cornish
and Cornwallis from Cornwall, Las
kin from Gaskony, Bomayne from
Borne. Names were taken, says Ar
thur, in his book on the Derivation
of Family Name-, (to whom I am
much indebted for. information on
this subject) from almost every city,
Wm. pariah, village, hamlet and.
farm. These names were first given
with the prefix of shortened to o or
a. As, John 0 Huntingdon, Adam
a Kirby. These prefixes were after a
time dropped, and John 0 Hunting
drin became John Huntingdon, and
Adam a Kirby became Adam Kirby.
The prefix at was sometimes incorpo
rated with the object near which the
person lived, and thus new names
were formed. Thus, Atwell, Adgate,
Atwood, Atwater,—denoting persons
living near the gate, wood, well, or
Gth. We must not overlook the
fact that some incident in the life, or
some peculiarity or habit of an indi
vidual, has given a name to his de
scendants. Thus the name Metcalf
is said to be derived from the follow
ing incident. In the ditys of bull
fights, a certain John Strong met a
ball that hitfl broken from its enclo
sure. Being attacked by the furious
creature, he seized him by the nos
trils and killed him. Meeting the
pUrsners, Who inquired whether he
had met a l bull, he replied, "1 met a
calf;" and was afterwards called John
Metcalf. The name Turnbull had a
similar origin. A strong man of the
name of Bud having turned a wild
bull by the head, which_ ran against
the k ing, Robert Brno% received
from the king this name, whicli his
descendantsittill retain.
The name Tynte goes back for its
origin to the crusades. A certain
knight distinguished himself at the
battle of Ascalon, and Ring Richard
conferred on him for a coat of arms
a bon on a field, with six ceoulete,
and thin motto; Tinctus cruori Sara
ceni. Whence the name Tynte.
But not so honorable are all names
given for some act which made the
doer notorious if not noted. "It is
said that the parish clerk of Lang
ford was called Iltedcook,' for many
years before bis death, for having
one Sunday slept in church, and
dreaming that he wan at a cock fight,
hobawled out, 'A shilling upon the
redcock And behold the family
are called , Itedcock' to this day."'
And to' often names given in con
tempt, founded upon some peculiari
ty or habit of, the individual; have
been - retained and transmitted. Thus
we have such names as Doolittle,
Hearsay, Timeslow, Homeless, Step
toe, Golightly, ' Rushoot, Troll Ope,
Lawless, Billiman, Bastard, Popkisit,
Leatherhead, Addlehead,
Gallows and Fell.
Lower informs us that persons are
sometimes called from the oaths they
were in the habit of using. And that
there - were living surgeons in a fash
ionable, square in London, whose
names are Churchyard, Death, Blood
and Slaughter.
Under this head we might perhaps
class thri long compound names, giv
en either to command or exhort. As,
Faint not Hewet, Make Peace Heat
en, Kill Sin Pimple, Be Faithful Join
er, Hope Fear Keating, Stand fast.
on-high Stringer, Fly-debate-Roberts
Be-steadfast -Ell, ard, Be-court eons-
Cole, The-peace-Of God-Knight, and
But these-names, as given by Fowler
in-his grammar,' are too long to come
into general use in this fast age.
, 7th. Nor should we' overlook an
other fact, that official 'titles have
been retained as proper names. Thus
welave King. Prince, Duke, Lord,
Earl, Knight, Pope, .Bishop, Priest,
Monk, a ll . Bailey., Chamber
ban, Ste , Constable, Chancellor,
Sheriff, Sergeant, Mayor, Warden,
Burgess, Porter, Champion; Beadle,
Page, Parker, Forester, etc.
We give below --a list of Jurymen
selected-by a Sheriff after the Judge
had found fault with the rank of the
former jurors Maximilian King,
Henry Prince, George Duke, Wm.
Marquis, Edmund Earl, Richard Bar
on, Stephen'Pope: Stephen Cardinal,
Humphrey Bi s hop,' • Robert Lord,
Robert Kuight, Wm. Abbot, Robert
Wm. Dean; John Archdeacon,
Peter Esquire, Edward ,Fryor, Hen
ry Monk, - George Priest, Richard
He certainly bad a jury of quality,
if not a 'qualified jury. The joke is
mote apparent wnen we remerelm
that the Sheriff, in reading
names, gave the place of residence or
jurisdiction, emphasizing 'the Christ
ian instead of the surname. Time :
Maximilian, King of - Toseland; . Ed
mind, Earl of Hartford; Humphrey,
Bishop of Buckdom, etc.
. Bth. Bat perhaps the most , fruitful
source of proper names is occupa
tion. It is proper that 'the word
Smith, from Smitten,' to smite, head
the list. It' seems to stand to the
otherb almost in the relation of genus
to species, and is the most common
of aIL
The New York City Directory of
1866,. contains 1800 Smiths and 11 . 7
John Smiths. In the list of Baptist
ministers in the United' States for
1872, there are 127 Elder Smiths.
"A wag," says Arthur, "coming
late to tke theatre, and wishing to
get a seat, shouted at the top of his
voice, 'Mr. Smith's house is on fire."
The house was thinned five per cent.
in a moment, and the man of humor
found a snug seat. The name is so
common that a significant soubriquet
must be appended to identify, the
person. Can you tell me where
Mr. Smith lives, Mister'?' 'Smith;
Smith—what Smith? There are a
good many of that name in these
parts—my name is Smith.' Why, I
do n't know his tether name ; but
he 's a sour•ciabbed sort of fellow ;
and they call him Crab Smith.' " Oh;
the deuce! suppose I'm the man."!
• With this preliminary dissertation
on Smith, I pass to a list of names
from occupation. To begin with
preparation of food, we have Mr ;
Butcher, Slaysman,Skinner, Potter,
Cook, Baker, Bak, Bakewell, Fry,
Browning, Barns, Boyle, Steward,

READ.—We have probably all of ns
met with instances in which a word
heedlessly spoken against the repnta-,
tion of a female has been magnified
by, malicious minds until the cloud
has been dark - enough to overshadow
her whole existence. To those who
are accustomed, not necessiarly from
bad motives, but from thoughtless
ness—to speak lightly of • ladies, we
recommend these hints as of
consideration : •
Never use a lady's name in improp
er places at an improper time, or in
mixed company. sever make asser
tions about her that you think nature
or allnsionr that yon think she her
self would' blush to hear.
, When you meet with men who do
not scruple to make use of a woman's
nanie in a reckless and unprincipled,
manner, shun 'them—they 'a - t.e the
veryworst members of the condmuni
ty—men lost to every sense of honor,
every feeling of humanity. litany a
good and worthy woman's - character
has been forever ruined'and her heart
broken by a lie manufactured by
some villian, and in the presence of
those whose Hale judgment could
not deter them from circulating the
fonl and damaging report.
A slandei is soon propogated, and
the smallest thing derogatory to a
woman's- character , will fly on the
wind, and magnify as it circulates
until its monstrous weight crushes
the poor unconscidus victim. Respect
the name of woman; your mother
:and sisters are women; and as you
wouldhave their fair names untarn
ished, and their livei3 nnimbittered
by the slanderer's bitter tongue, heed
the ills your words may bring upon
the mother, and sister or the Rife of
some of your _fellow creatures. •

The Burning_ Nine In Penneylianin
Oueue:led—Hoer Ilelonia Trin,ophed
ver INature..
WEST Prrrsitin, Nov. I.—The. fire
in the: "burning mine" is at last
conqdred. The emploriient of steam
'by the Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre coal
company in:.extidonishing the 'Em
pire mine fire has proved a success,
which must be of incalculable value
not alone in Pennsylvania, but in
mining districts everywhere.
• The story is one full of fascination
:and of value se -well, in view of the
vague and curionsideas of ,what fire
in the mines yeally amounts to, set
forth by comments on the same,
even in the midst of the mining re
gions. The general thought semis
to be of a vein of coal , burning itself .
Out in pertain restricted limits, or so
situated that a stream - of water could
he easily turned in, flooding it °tit.
Comparatively few persons are aware
Of the absolute necessity of conquer
ing it, involving .not merely heavy
expenditure, bitt a warfare taxing to
the utmost the inventive and execu
tive ability of mien familiar with
Mines and engineering,
On the hillside, perhaps a mile
from where we stood;'•was the month
of a slope from which mines, now
abandoned; *ere formerly worked ;
afterward used as an up-cast for pur
poses of ventilation in connection
with boilers • below. These, boilers
were placed near the head of Empire
slope No. 5, which, still leads further
down into newer workirga. Near
the entrance -to the slope stood a
wooden stack 'which, at 1 a.m., - on
the alat of last December, was dis
covered to be in flames, doubtless
Parried up to it almost instantane
ously from fire originating at the
boilers. The open spaces on each_
side of the slope had been walled up
with stone, but with doorways for
occasional necessary entrance 'to the
old workings ; and the fire had com
municated at once through those
doors with the timber, supports,
Stretching in all direetions through
the abandoned chambers. So that,
while officers and men were promptly
on the spot, they were met, at the
very first by a turrent of flame, like
that which the like winds swept over
Chicago, carried up through a diago
nal chimney of 1,00 feet, from what
was almady a stream of fire on a
level of 250 feet, as a plumb line
thightfall, below the spot where they
stood. Water was poured into the
slope froM a reservoir abp've, and
turned on below from the water pipe
that fed the boilers, so soon, as they
could be reached through the nearest
shaft with its connecting gangway,
while every effort was used to cut off
air from the fire without destroying
the ventilation. necessary for • the
workers. Bat at the end of three
hours .the slope fell in, shutting fhe
fire in from above.
At the close of February the fire,
save for about 200 feet, had been ce
curely enclosed, and the end seemed
near, when sound aud.sign gave token
that the roof of the old workings to
the west was about to fall. - This had
been so provided as to insure its
coming quietly, but the men; fearing
the concussion of air which resultS
from violent falls, and which drives
even loaded cars like playthings be
fore it out of the mines, refused to
remain. Watchers were stationed at
safe distances, but the fall came so
gently that tey were unaware of it.
Un March officers found that it
was over, but while the men were
absent the fire had swept through
the open space and covered a field
far beyond its original dimensions;
air currents were reversed ; connect
ing passages closed or flooded. To
stop the fans was certain death to
the men • to keep them going was to
feed thjfire. •
• It was at .this time when now
measures were imperative that the
mine boss, Lewis S. Jones, urged the
trial of steam. From the 12th to
the 18th of ?larch it was tested in'
spaces stilianclosed. A well entirely
surrounding the old workings was
completed with eager baste ; all cave
holes above were tightly paced virith
clay; a single airway; to. 'be after
wards gradually' closed, alone re - -
maiming. The steam from eighteen
boilers was driven down through
pipes already inserted, and early in
,aliiy all eyes looked their joyful.fare
well to the fire. At that time -the
thermometer attached to the test
pipes registered 176 degrees. A
month later the lower stratum was
cold. The steam, however, will be
kept confined until the first of Janu
ary next; to provide against any pos
sibility of lurking danger.
BAD LecatreoE.-=There is as much
connection between the words and
the thoughts as there is between the
thoughts and actions ; the lattei is
only the expre'ssion of the . former,
but they have power -to react upon
the. soul and leave the stain of cor
ruption there. A. young man who
allows himself to use one vulgar or
profane word, has not only shown
that there is a foul spot upon his
mind, bat by the appearance of that
one word he extends that spot and
inflames it till, by indulkence it will
pollute and ruin his soul. Be careful
of your words as of your thoughts.
If you can control the tongue that
no improper words are pronounced
by it, you will soon be able to con
trol the mind, and save it from cor
ruption. You extinguish the fire by
smothering it or preventing bad
thoughts bursting into language.—
Never utter; a word anywhere which
you are ruipamed to speak in the
presence of the refined female or .the
most religious man.
hiY friends, if there is any man
whom from the bottom of ' my heart
I pity, it is the man who believes
that all mankind are cheats and
swindlers, and who considers life
merely a game of grasping and grip
ing. It there is any young man for
whom I feel a deep regret, as for a
man sure to fail, sure to live and die
wretchedly, it is the - young man who
goes forth into the world believing
that the only motives in this world
are selfish motives. Depend upon
it that selfishness is not the only
motive in this worldnay, it is not
even the strongest motive.—Preeident

the salt waters in. the Fall, always
going in large ,schaols. There are a
great many peculiarities connected
with the eel that but few people know
of. For instance, there are some
eight or ten kinds of them, of which
several never enter into f es& water.
Some of the varieties are when fall

weighing one hundred pounds. The

turtle, they can travel ot of water
for some distance, from stream to

The gills, or breathing organ, are
_covered up by a most delicate curtain

village from the next cony to work
upon a new church, on of whom,
having left hie hammer behind; came
to the blacksmith's to• gr one made,
there being none`in the illage store.
"Make me' a good one,'; said the
.carpenter, "as good a done as you
know bow." •
"But," said the young blacksmith,
who had already considered hammers
andlad arrived at some notion of
what a hammer Ought" to be, and had
a proper contempt for cheapness in
all its forms,vArhapa you don't
want to pay for as good a one as I
can make:'
"Yes; fdo ; I want al good bam.

And so David May ole made a
good hammer, the best one probably
that had ever been mad; since• Tubal

the carpenter.,. = The next day' the
man's five companions came, each of
them wanting last snob a hammer,
and when they were &ma the employ

the storekeeper' of the villa,ge ordered
two dozen, which were onght by la
