after passing a high and well-merited eulogium on the character of the late Earl of Hardwicke, High Steward of the University, dwelt at great length, and with the most eloquent simplicity, on the excellent traits of character evinced in the public and private conduct of the late Chancellor. As we venture to hope that the sermon will be published, we will not diminish the effect which it must have produced on those who heard it, by giving an imperfect analysis of it; but we cannot refrain from borrowing one small portion of the Professor's sermon, which proves the most important point of all-the piety and resignation of the noble sufferer. "The truth of the following circumstance may be relied upon:-During an occasional intermission of the pains of disease, one of his attendants said to him, You are better; you need not despair.' To which the Duke replied, I shall die; but I do not despair.' After the sermon, the anthem, Behold, I tell you a mystery," was performed by the choir.

On Friday, Dec. 12, the Marquis Camden was unanimously elected to the office of Chancellor of this University, vacant by the death of his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester. Immediately after the election and the affixing the official seal to the letter to the new Chancellor, announcing his appointment, the Deputation, consist

ing of the Vice-Chancellor, several Heads of Houses, the Caput, and other officers of the University, proceeded to town, for the purpose of installing the Chancellor in his office; and, after the election had been announced to his Lordship, they were entertained by him at a sumptuous dinner. On the following morning the Deputation, which was joined by a large number of Members of the Senate usually resident in London, proceeded from the ThatchedHouse Tavern, in St. James's-street, to the Chancellor's residence in Arlingtonstreet, in the following order :

The Yeoman Bedell,
Three Esquire Bedells.

The Vice-Chancellor.

The Members for the University.
The Commissary.

The Master of Magdalene College.

Catherine Hall.
St. John's College.
Clare Hall.
Pembroke Hall.
Christ's College.
Downing College.

The President of Queen's College. The Doctors of Different Faculties. The Public Orator.

The Proctors.

The Scrutators.

The Registrary. Members of the Senate.

Having arrived at the Chancellor's residence, and being introduced in due form, the Vice-Chancellor addressed his Lordship in an appropriate speech. After passing a very high and most deserved compliment upon the late Chancellor, for his great attachment to the University, and for his urbanity of manner and facility of intercourse, the Reverend Gentleman expressed the great regret which the death of his Royal Highness had excited in the University, and lamented the loss it had sustained, particularly in the present times, when that learned body had so much occasion for his valuable and powerful assistance. In speaking of the new Chancellor, Dr. French observed, that his disinterested public conduct and his private virtues were so well-known that it was unnecessary for him to attempt to eulogize his exalted character. He concluded by saying, that he had no doubt, from the great regard the Noble Marquis had ever evinced for the University, and the services he had rendered it, they might at all times depend upon his zealous assistance and support.

The necessary oaths were then administered, and the statutes of the University presented to his Lordship; after which he

was addressed by the Public Orator in a very eloquent Latin speech, at the conclusion of which the Chancellor addressed the Deputation at great length. The purport of the reply will be found in his Lordship's letter to the University, which was read in the Senate House on Tuesday.

The Duke of Northumberland, Lord Prudhoe, Lord Bayning, Lord Brecknock, &c. were present during the ceremony. The whole party were afterwards entertained by the Chancellor at a handsome dejeuné.

At a subsequent congregation, a letter from the Marquis Camden, accepting the high honour conferred upon him, was read to the Senate.

The Noble Marquis, after expressing, in feeling terms, his regret for the death of the late Chancellor, H. R. H. the Duke of Gloucester, stated he could not adequately convey the sense he entertained for the high honour conferred upon him, in selecting him for the important office of Chancellor, at a time when attempts were making, not only to subvert the discipline and management of the Established Church, but its very existence, and of our most venerated institutions. His Lordship further said, it would be his most anxious endeavour to promote the interests of the University, and maintain the connexion of Church and State, and hoped for the assistance of that distinguished body to which he was united. He concluded by again expressing his acknowledgments for the good opinion personally entertained of him by the University, which he would endeavour to show was not misplaced; and the distinguished honour he felt at being placed at the head of that body which, throughout his life, he so much venerated.

His Grace the Duke of Northumberland has been appointed High Steward of this University, in the place of the Right Honourable the Earl of Hardwicke, deceased.

A meeting of the Philosophical Society was held on Monday evening, Nov. 24, Professor Airy, one of the Vice-Presidents, being in the chair. Professor Airy gave an account of the calculations which he had caused to be made, in order to determine the apparent disk of a star, and the rings which surround it, when seen through an object glass with a circular aperture. He also stated that corrections had recently been discovered to be necessary in the results of the trigonometrical survey of this country, by which the differences which had previously appeared to exist between the astronomical and geodetical determinations of the latitude and longitude of Cambridge Observatory are greatly diminished.Mr. Stevenson, of Trinity College, read a memoir on the establishment of certain geometrical properties by the combination of the infinitesimal method with the doctrine of projections.-Professor Sedgwick and other members then communicated some observations illustrative of the geology of Cambridge. The upper chalk with flints runs in a distinct terrace from near Newmarket, by Balsham and Linton, to Royston Downs, and thence into Hertfordshire. Beneath this is the lower chalk without flints, which appears at Reach, Cherryhinton, and Haslingfield. Below this is a thin bed which represents the upper green sand; and which, though not above a foot thick, is remarkably continuous in the neighbourhood of Cambridge, being found at the Castle-hill, Barnwell, Ditton, Coton, and Madingley. Under this are the blue galt, and the "lower green sand" of geologists, which may here be called the red sand. The red sand runs from Gamlin
