in this University. After the Presentation to degrees, the annual speech in celebration of the benefactors to the University, was delivered by Mr. Crowe, of New College, the public orator.

The prize . were then recited in the following order; viz. The Latin verses “Trafalgar,” by Mr. John Latham, Commoner of Hrazenose College; and the English Essay on “Posthumous Fame,”

by Edward Gerrard Marsh, B. A. Fellow of Oriel College; the English verses “Travels of Discovery into the Interior of Africa,” (a private donation) by Mr. Henry A. Johnson, Conmoner of Christ Church; and Sir Roger Newdigate's prize English Verses “On the Study of Grecian and Roman Architecture, Sculpture, and Painting, by John Wilson, Esq. Gentle

man Commoner of Magdalen Col

lege. The versification of Mr. Latham was remarkably correct and classical; and in expatiating on his proud and triumphant subject, he very successfully embraced the opportunity of making many splendid and pathetic allusions to the hero of Trafalgar. There was considerable elegance and polished propriety in the English poetry of Messrs. Johnson and Wilson. The former had evidently availed himself of every thing communicated upon the subject of Africa by Mr. Mungo Parke; and we heartily wish success to the harsky exertions

of that gentleman, who is now, for the second time, engaged in the dangerous task of exploring that country. Mr. Marsh, in his Essay, took a very comprehensive view of the subject, and with great force contrasted the permanent importance of “Posthumous Fame” with the capriciousness and inconstancy of popular applause. His style was eminently plain and perspicuous: and at a time when most writers are searching after ornament, and the tinsel and glitter of language, his composition was recommended by the chaste simplicity which distinguished the immortal writings of Addison. All the prizes were received with warm applause. 19. The Rev. Charles John Spencer, of St. Edmund Hall; Mr. James Boswell; the Rev. John Clavering, and Robert Henry Johnson, of Brazenose College, B.A. were admitted M. A. Messrs. Henry Barnes, of Exeter College; and Griffith Phillips, of Jesus College, were admitted B. A. 21.
