Canon of Christ Church, Regius professor of Hebrew, and Landian professor of Arabic in the University; and rector of Melton, in Suffolk. Dr. W. is succeeded in the Hebrew chair, and the prebend of Christ Church, by the Rev. Richard Lawrence, LL.D. The Laudian Arabic professor. ship is conferred by election on the Rev. T}r. Winstanley, principal of St. Alban's Hall, and Camden professor of History. r. White was born of humble parents, in sloucestershire. From his parents he inherited a serious temper, and employed such time as could be spared from his employment in his father's profession, that of

..a weaver, in reading such books as fell in

his way. The youth's attainments at last attracting the notice of a gen:!eman of the neighbouihood, he patrosized him and sent Thim to Wadham College, in Oxford. In February, 1773, Mr. W. took the degree of M. A. and by the advice of Dr. Moore, afterwards Archbishop of Canterbury, applied to the study of the Oriental angliages. In 1775 he was appointed Laudian professor of Arabic, on entering on which office he pronounced a masterly oration, soon afterwards pointed, on the utility of the Arabic tongue in theological stoodies; by which many were induced to devote thenselves to that branch of literary occupation, formerly much neglected. In 1774 He became a fellow of his college: in 1773 he published the Philoxenian Syriac version of the four gospels, from the manuscripts given by Đr. Gloucester Ridley, to New College. In November, 177 , Mr. W. preached and printed a discourse recommending, but hitherto unsuccessfully, a revision of the English translation of the Old *Testament: about the same time he was appointed one of the preachers of Whitehail Chapel. In 1780 Mr. W. published “a Specimen of the Civil and Military Institutes of Timmour or Tamerane,” translated from the Persian. In Easter term r. W. was appointed to preach the Bampton lecture the next year. In preparation for this enterprise, he purposely consulted with the learned Mr. Badcock, then settled as a dissenting minister in South Molton, in Devonshire; a circumstance which, upon the death of Mr. B: in 1788, occasioned certain discussions, by which a temporary cloud was drawn over the reputation of the lecturer, on the score *** . . . . . . - - -
