ruTilE I EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE 4 GUARDIAN. AI! SlR,- As the promised rider" of the letter you did me the favor to insert in your paper of the 12 iilt. I beg to offer another, under the idea that no such authorities as Father Prout and Frasor's write Blarney it will be allowed in others; and I call upon the 11 Schoolmaster abroad" to take lip this matter as I took it up and shall now lay it down, in as serious Blarnev as he may be able to concoct. Father Prout observes that the name of the City of the Blarney stone, Carthage, is in the Hebrew Tarshish, and means valuable stone. I have shown that Car- \ba"'e is We'sh, and that the meaning is Field of the stone and as Fatl,er Prout claims parentage for his Countrymen from Carthage, and the Welsh claim by tradition from Gomer, is it not a curious coincidence that a nephew of Gomer was Tarshish, the son of Javan, and that in the verse following the mention of Tarshish we read, 10 Genesis 5 v. "By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided into their lands, every one after his tongue after their families in their nation," Father Prout, a Catholic, is I suppose to be excused, trying to make out the word Tarshish a corruption of the word Tarsus, although the word Tarshish occurs as the name 01 of this family of the Gentiles centuries before that of Tarsus. I venture to set down this Tarshish family as the founders of Carthage, and Carthage as the parentage of Europe, and the name Evan, as also the royal name of Russia Ivan, to be from Javan, the son of Japhet, the son of Noah. I have to trouble you with another dozen proofs that the Welsh word Careg means field stone, and that eg the last syllable was originally stone; on which rests my theory that Carthage is Welsh Ca.rth-age. Kffypl the first of kingdoms and founded only 160 years after the deluge has for its first syllable the last of Carthage, and its name is not only derl/ed from eg-stone, but answers the English sounds eg-heaped-the Pyramids. For says FAther Prout, We built the Pyramids before we left Egypt, and all those Obelisks, Sphinxes, and Mem- nonic stones are but emblems of the Blarney stone." The wisdom imparted by the Blarney stone taught the rulers of this first of nations that the stability of their power over the people depended upon providing for m"n such employment as would place the restless and turbulent over the humble and weak,just as the noisy "'hg-s and Radicals have placed" themselves over us at this time, and will remain until a greater proportion of our eyes have been opened by a trip to the Blarney stone for as each party read only papers of its. own colour" or kidney," how vilull they hear without a preacher 1" And is not preaching 1, The Whi<:s" the real use and employ of the hun- dreds of itineraul coniniissiollel,s ? Usurpers and upstarts unsettled in all their ways, means, and ideas, push their people into wars and changes, and there being at that pnriod no kingdom but that of Egypt, their war was against the Ages (Stoncs) which the deluge had left on the finest soil they had seen; and as to the Pyramids we require no further proof of "the why and wherefore they were erected." It was the war of the first people against the first enemies, and it is curious that three glorious days of war with stoneq in Paris has made our neighbours exhibit as fine a 14ptleiireii of military despotism as is on record roinee '.he war of Stones in Egypt; and does not this show us that the Blarney stone offers a much safer mode of dealing with our superiors lhaa that of breaking up our streets. The first Egyptian name mentioned after Pharoah is Agar, the maid given by Sarah to Abraham. Similar K> Aflar an officer or second fiddle," a name no doubt given by her mistress because she cut her country like an hailsto,e, Ag-ar—Reformers would say like a shot off a shovel." And I find the only Arabic word with which I happen to be acquainted very similar in spund and meaning. Agira, the stone of snow for the act of Mahomet, when in all his pretended purity he fled toMecca, and threw himselfon the support of the believers. As to snow being a thing in that part of the world unknown, you know Mr. Editor there has been little or no snow in this country since the passing of the Reform Bill, and those countries as we.I as our own and our neighbours, must have become a groat deal hotter by every reform they have gone through, and I have no doubt snow was quite common originally in Asia. „ But to return to the days of Gomer, who wa< about an hundred years old at the time of founding the Kingdom of Egypt, his descendants must have remained in that quarter up to fouuding the City of Carthage, called in Hebrew after his nephew Tarshish •, and I call upon the Schoolmaster abroad" or at home," to show by what steps and degrees the Isles of the Gentiles were divided into their lands. My ample term at School will be accurately expressed by the decimal fraction, 73 of a year spent at a tip top establishment, where at the ago of ten I poured over a Latin grammar nearly all a kind mother had taught me of English, and returned to her astonishment shorn of my capability of reading the History of England; and I submit that the Schoolmaster ought to take iip this matter for me iii, return. I wonder can the puffing and puffed up Hog king of the land of brains of pretender3" express this term at school by the decimal fraciion of a year. I beg also to call the School- master to aeconnt for having made the only four men of the "couple of hundred" 1 employ who have "had school," so unwilling for their hands in manhood to take the office of their heads in youth and work, that I find the reformed colliers as Cobbett found a re- formed House of Commons not worth a Anti that, Mr. Editor, is precisely the value an old relative of mine (who had stooped to the lilaruey stone, but never to the doctrine that men could not learn in Church enough to practice) foretold would be their value out of the School- master's hands. They will do, said he, to walk the country with tea. to make their females labour, and to increase the classes productive" of speaking mildly botheration. Memnon, the Egyptian, invented letters about 400 years afterthe founding of his nation, and as I have proved Ag to have been stone, and Father Piout speaks of the Mem- uonic stones (of course the books or tables of Memnon), and we find one Åg-a-memnon commanding the Greeks I at the Siege of Troy, I do say there is good data for the Schoolmaster's operations if he will produce. The most serious contentions of the men of old would ba as to the extent of their land, and the setting down a stone would be the Ag reement and edge of the property. ¡ The lirst fixing of stone on record was between Jacob and Laban. And Laban called it J eg arsa-ha-duth a, which stripped of the J (of which we all know the serious meaning in the. Hebrew) gives its the eg or stone. But Jacob called it G.ileed.—Now G m Welsh is eg, and a is a conjunction. I leave tile rest to the Schoolmaster, for as I before observed hQ cannot expeci much from one. Where deadly damps infest from childhood bred, And piles insatiate rear their flaming head. But I just now remember that you expect of me as to the Welsh names of places in the centre of hngland. In a square mile of marsh on the Banks of Rother is a spot called, time out of mind, Battle Meadow," in which implements of war were found a few years ago. and of which ail men would have road had It been since the people "trui little but hear and ten some new thing." A name of the parish is Rillamarsh, from Rilla, to give way Britt I challenge the Schoolmaster to name a battle finished without one party having given way, reminding him that the abominable battle carried on by his patron, i glorious or otherwise, against the barons of England who, tight for the Crown'' is as Capability Jones said of Old England by no means finished. The adjoining parish is called in Dooms day hook, Eckington cwn) Ballro, being a fine valley wider it brow ill the shape of a pointed spade, Parlbro* names, which 11.11" flare up Welsh." Another adjoining parish is Wales, the-property of His Grace the liuke ot Lefuii, and I beg to notice the young gentlemen of Wales that the Marquis of Carmarthen stands, in tles- pite of 11.11 rights, titles, and possessions, heir apparent to every inch of land in Wales. Should some caviller set about to show that one word IValeS is not Celtic, that Wales has nothing to do with Welsh, I say fire away at father Prout for he began this ag-itation, and 1110 word is derived from the agitation «n the ranks of out enemies when the ages or stones came down the Cam among them, 1 understand from a friend of Mr. "Morgan the great cal. culator that it is hard to say which language T of all known in Europe has the greatest quantum of the Welsh in it, the Alps, alt high Jihtaltar head higher; Italy, spoken of the soil as the first question, It will pay, are as clearly Welsh as the name Sir W. W, Wynn for the gr at l,ionof e. the Vorth. or Pengwyn for White-headed Bob in the exhibition. The English word Carpenter says as Welsh he who did the tirst work of wood ca shut up, pen head or fold, ter land expressed in Welsh by the sound sar. Then does not the name Cresar give both in nve letters ? Fipld Carpenter. But there is a name which reduces English, Welsh, and Irish into one and the same. in WeWh it stands for he who makes every kind of hole but the hole in his neighbour s coat, and that man goes bv a far lesa honourable name. rtFlkI In Ireland, it is greater than theONettaand 'O'Iahonys of the Falher Prout. and all the curls in tbe tail of O'Connel, and goes far to justify the opinion that the Clan (Butler) were the makers of those wonderotis subterraneous excavations, miles far and wide, to which the Pyramids of Egypt are nothing, lately discovered in Ireland. And there is to my knowledge one of the name still so deep in subterraneous affairs, that be has not I believe left a stones (age) unturned. In England, the name has authority oyer the liquors which make men o'er all the ills of life victorious. A name also of such account that it sent to the head assembly of triankinciffour, when no two took place" there of any other name. An assembly now brow beaten by an abo- mination of desolation". who was at all times the last man on earth to be sent there. And in respect to this name, let it be recorded, that one sojourning at Golden Grovo, in this county, produce the first and bit book of iti kind. This will be cleared up by my saving one of the name U mains. 4 Sir, Your obEuient humble Servant, Au-f. luS-Jk IJLDIIiRAs.
