THE OUTRAGE AT CHRIST CHURCH. OXFORD. The surrender of the perpetrators of the recent outrage at the library of Christ Church has released the authorities of that Society from the painful dutv of prosecuting, and enabled them to take the punishment of the offenders into their own hands. During the week, meeting after meeting has been held both by the authorities and undergraduates, and it having been found by the latter that in the absence of a confession, the whole truth would un- doubtedly be elicited at a public inquiry in a court of justice, they made a virtue of necessity, and gave in their names to the Dean, on the understanding that they were to escape a prosecution, and on Sa- turday morning the nature of their punishment became known. Three or four of the ringleaders have, it appears, been expelled-i.e., had their names taken off the books of the college, without the option of entering at other colleges, while one has been rusticated for eighteen months and one for twelve months, and the two least culpable of the party have been gated," or, in other words, confined withig the college walls until the end of term (in June next). The gentleman who has ab- sented himself since the affair was discovered is, it is said, amonsrst those who have been dismissed the college. His father, who is a well-known Lon- don banker, has been to Oxford several times in his son's absence, and is much distressed at the conduct of his son, who was one of the most popular and one of the leading members of Christ Church. The other ringleaders are gentlemen whose names will be found in the lists of the landed gentry, and the less onendingpartiesareconnectedwiththepeerao-e.
