The qurtatt* ?r. well nderd. rbe third movement --itd of a very sweet chorale, "My Jesus, as Thou wilt, when D ath itself draws Nigh," aud the way this was sung was exceedingly tiDo.

Profossor Parry's musical friends nfarlylilled all the seats on one ride of the 8enate House. They appearod 10 be very muoh amused with the prooeodings, there being another MaeUr of Arts to be adulltted.. well. fortunately for them, the undergraduates' galleries were ali but di^M\rted, and "eil.4w the professor nor his W"Isb friends had to run the gauntlet of undergraduate chaff, ail the mem- t:roof the university in *fufu pupdfan h?'ig gone dOWD, or M?riy so. The Hwr of the Hentte Home prettnted iu usual Wusted "poot on a Congregation day, wniuhaas rather intensified by what may be regarded. something very like a hitch. The conferment of the Dootor s Degree on Profearor Parry was evidently not oontoioplated, as uo stipplieat was prepared, and on thu arrival of Dr. Atkinson, the Vico-Channellor, preaeded by the two Esquire Beadles bearing the tnaoe, at about half an hour after the regulation time, it was found necessary to hastily convene a uieetiug of the council.

Here Pro- fessor Macfarren was brought to him by Mr. l;, F. Cobb, M.A,, the Bursar of Trinity, and conducted Professor Parry to within half a score Imrds of tho Viae.

Tina done, the pro. leaser lOt uiusio retired, and tbo new doctor doignate advanced up the first step of the dai., and knelt at tho feet of the Vioe-Chanoellor, who, tskiiig hia hands between his own, admitted him in the following wordH: "Auct¿;ritate mihi oom- mitsa, aiin:itt<) te ad titnlnui dcofc rie in inusica defigiiati, in n.aiue Patii*, et Filii, ct Pprit- Ssneti."
