THE NEW ARCH BISHOP OF CANTER- B FIR Y. The Archbishopric of Canterbury, vacant by the death of Dr. Longley, has been conferred on the Bishop of London, and has been accepted. The Right Hon. and Right Rev. Archibald Campbell Tait, D C.L., who has thus been raised to the highest position in the English Church, was born on the 22nd of December, 1811, and is the fifth and youngest son of the late Mr. Crawford Tait, writer to the signet, of Harvieston, in the county of Clackmannan. He was educated at the High School, and after- wards at the Academy of Edinburgh, under Arch- deacon Williams. In 1827 he went to the Univer- sity of Glasgow, where he attended the lectures of the late Sir Daniel R. Sandford and Mr. Buchanan. He was elected in 1830 as an exhibitioner on Snell's foundation to Balliol College, Oxford, of which he be- came successively scholar, fellow, and tutor. He took his B.A. degree in 1830, when he was first class in classics. In 1842, on the death of Dr. Arnold, he was elected to the Head Mastership of Rugby School, and in 1850, was nominated by Lord Russell, then Prime Minister, to the deanery of Carlisle. On the resignation of Dr. Blomfield in 1856, Dr. Tait was nominated Bishop of London, in which diocese he has laboured with un- wearied assiduity up to the present time.
