Consecration of the City Cemetery.-The Bishop of London this day consecrated the new City of London Cemetery, situate at Little Ilford, a few miles eastward of Stratford-le-Bow, in the presence of the Lord Mayor and a large number of civic officials. On arriving at the chapel, prayers were read, and afterwards the Bishop, accompanied by Dr. Shepherd, acting as chancellor, and several aldermen and clergymen, proceeded to the ground, which the Bishop consecrated according to the ordinary used in the diocese of London. The musical portions of the service were performed by the gentlemen of the choir of St. Paul's Cathedral.

used for divine service until the remainder of the church has been rebuilt and restored; after which all the damage done to the chancel will be made good. With reference to the rebuilding, a meeting of the parishioners has been held, at which Mr. James Harrison, of Chester, architect, reported as to the state of the church. He estimated the expense of rebuilding the pillars and arches in the nave, and restoring the windows in the west end, the roof of the nave and aisles, the floor, seats, doors, and the pillars, arches, and floor to the tower, re-glazing the windows, and completing all damage, at an outlay of £3,025. He also estimated the restoration of the roofs, stalls, &c., in the chancel, at £413. A plan for raising funds, by rate and subscription, was agreed to, and a subscription-list at once opened, when £500 each were subscribed by Sir S. R. Glynne, Mr. Gladstone, M.P., and the Rev. R. Glynne, the rector; and £100 each by the Bishop of St. Asaph, the Hon. Mrs. Talbot, and others: various smaller sums were also subscribed.

The Rev. F. Temple, formerly Principal of Kneller-hall, to be Head Master of Rugby School. "This appointment," the Literary Gazette remarks, "is one from which the best results may be expected. Mr. Temple, in his recent position as Principal of Kneller-hall, and subsequently as one of her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools, has had opportunity of becoming accurately acquainted with the most advanced acquirements of modern training, while his own classical accomplishments are of the highest order. At Oxford, in 1842, he gained first classes in Classics and Mathematics, and was afterwards Fellow of his college, Balliol. Mr. Temple is the third Balliol scholar in succession who has filled the head-mastership of Rugby,-Dr. Tait and Dr. Goulburn being also Balliol men. The Bishop of London, the Deans of Hereford and Wells, the Masters of Balliol and Pembroke Colleges, Dr. Vaughan, of Harrow, the Rev. Canon Stanley, Arnold's biographer, and many other distinguished scholars, having given testimonials to Mr. Temple in his candidateship, is evidence of the estimation in which he is generally held. As the proposer of the new scheme of middleclass examinations in connexion with the Universities, Mr. Temple's name will be associated with one of the most important movements in the history of education in this country." Member returned to serve in Parliament. Oldham-William Johnson Fox.

OBITUARY.

THE DUCHESS DE NEMOURS.

WE are sorry to be called upon to announce the premature death of this lamented princess, whose accouchement took place at Claremont, Oct. 28. Her Royal Highness had gone on favourably for some days, and the attack under which the princess sank on Tuesday was as sudden as it was unexpected. The Duke de Nemours and the whole of the members of the exiled royal family are plunged in the deepest grief by the visitation. Intelligence of the sad event was forwarded by express to Windsor Castle at an early hour on Tuesday afternoon, and the Prince Consort immediately proceeded to Claremont to pay a visit of condolence. The melancholy news caused great affliction to her Majesty and the Prince, who had visited the Duchess at Claremont on Saturday last, when apparently convalescent: and orders were given for postponing the statereception of the Siamese ambassadors, fixed for Thursday; and all invitations to Windsor Castle have been postponed for the present.

The Duchess de Nemours was a daughter of the Grand Duke Ferdinand of SaxeCoburg and Gotha, and was consequently cousin of her Majesty and Prince-Consort. Her Royal Highness was born in 1822, and married, in 1840, the Duke de Nemours, by whom she has had four children-the Count d'Eu, the Duc d'Alençon, the Princess Marguerite, and, after an interval of eleven years, the infant whose birth has preceded by only a few days the untimely decease of its illustrious mother.

THE BISHOP OF ANTIGUA.

Oct 25. At No. 3. Bryanstone-st., Portman-sq., London, aged 69, the Right Rev. Dr. Daniel Gateward Davis, Lord Bishop of Antigua. The good Bishop's decease was sudden, it having been occasioned by a disease of the heart.

He was born in the island of St. Christopher, in the West Indies, in the year 1788, the son of the Rev. W. Davis. He was placed under the care of the Rev. Dr. Valpy of Reading a short time before going to Oxford, where he entered at Pembroke College. From that college he took his de

gree of Bachelor of Arts in 1814. Having been ordained Deacon and Priest by the Bishop of London, Dr. Wm. Howley, he proceeded to the West Indies, and not long after his arrival there was instituted to the Rectory of St. Paul's, Nevis, an island near St. Christopher's. At Nevis he faithfully discharged his pastoral duties for eleven years.

It was during his ministry in that parish that Mr. Davis stepped boldly forward to claim for the poor degraded slave the right of marriage. This was a most important movement, dictated by justice and true benevolence.
