1761 4700

It appears from the University Calendar, that the number of Members on the boards is 4700, being an increase of 210 in the last year, and of 1905 since 1813. The number of Members on the books of Oxford is 4660, so that the numbers at Cambridge now, for the first time, we believe, exceed those at Oxford.

He took the Degree of M.A. in July 1797; of B.D. in October, and D.D. in November, 1823. Fuller, J. at Chesham. Bucks, aged 74. Girdlestone, John Lang, at Sherringham; this divine was born at Baconsthorpe, Jan. 5, 1763. He was educated by his uncle until the age of fourteen, and then placed under the care of Dr. Potter, the translator of the Greek tragedians, with whom he continued until he went to Caius College, Cambridge, Oct. 1781. In Jan. 1785, he took his

degree of B.A., having, notwithstanding his habitual aversion to the study of mathematics, obtained a respectable station among the senior optimes of that year. During the same year he was elected a Fellow of his College, and took his M.A. degree at the usual standing. In 1788 he was instituted to the rectory of Swainsthorpe, on the presentation of his sister, Mrs. Brooke, and married during the following year. About this period he was appointed by the Bishop of Norwich, and the other trustees, to the Mastership of the Beccles Grammar School. In this situation he exerted no common abilities, and not without considerable success: but the employment was far from congenial to his peculiar turn of mind, and he resigned it at Christmas, 1813, on being instituted to the vicarage of Sherringham. Shortly before this period he became known to the public as the author of a very spirited translation of all the odes of Pindar into English verse. In the ensuing year he published the first part of “Familiar Dialogues on Religion,” a work of considerable merit, designed by himself to act as an antidote to the effects of Mr. Belsham's version of the New Testament. He was in the habit also of printing short and useful tracts for the use of his scholars, and afterwards of his parishioners. His last publication was an Essay on the Foundation of the Christian Church: besides which he had prepared for the press some religious poetry, shortly previous to his death. This event took place after a severe illness, at Sherringham, Jan. 22, 1825. Severe domestic affliction was thought by his friends to have aggravated his natural irritability of temperament and sensitive perception of the ills and sufferings of life. In him were united unbending firmness of principle with the most extreme tenderness of heart. Though tenaciously averse to enter into mixed society, he exercised in the small circle of domestic life powers of conversation, vivacity of manner, and benevolence of purpose, which insured him the love as well as the admiration of those who had the happiness to be known to him. Nor has he left them without the best of consolation, the recollection of that unshaken Christian piety, which animated the tenor of his life, and supported him in the valley of the shadow of death. Hall, Benjamin, D.D. of Jesus College, Oxford, Prebendary and Precentor of
