TEE BISEOP OF PETERBOROUGH. The ceremony of confirming the election of the Very Rev. W. C. Magee, Dean of Cork, to the bishopric of Peterborough took place on Saturday morning at the parish church of St. Mary-le-Bow, Cheapside. After the Litany had been read by the Rev. Marshall Hallvine, M.A., the rector, Sir Tiavers Twiss, the Vicar-General of the Province of Canterbury, took his seat at a table in the body of the church, the bishop elect remaining in his pew. The proctor for the Dean and Chapter of Peterborough then presented to the Vicar-General the letters patent of the Queen issued under the Great Seal, which the Vicar-General directed the principal regis- trar of the province, Mr. F. Hart Dyke, to read aloud after which the proctor for the Dean and Chapter prayed the Vicar-General to proceed according to the letters patent. The bishop elect then advanced from his pew, and took his seat at the table opposite to the Vicar-General, and some other documents having been admitted, the Vicar-General directed that all opposers should be publicly called, upon which the appointee made the usual and somewhat quaint proclamation to the effect that all persons who wished to oppose the said election should appear. Proclamation having been made, the Vicar-General signed the schedules. The bishop elect then knelt down before the Vicar-General and took the oaths, after which it was declared that the election of the Dean and Chapter of Peterborough was confirmed.
