CARDIFF POLICE.—Monday, Feb. 6. [Before the Mayor.] John Shaiighnessey, Wm. Pittence, and Robert Williams, were charged with stealing coal off a coal yard, near the Bute docks, the property of Mr. Edmunds. The parties were caught in the fact with the coal in their possession. Mr. Edmunds was to-day unwilling to press the matter to a conviction. He was merely anxious that an example should be set by a summary proceeding, if possible, against the delinquents. It is not always possible to enclose several thousand tons of coals, and the case of the present parties who were of mature age, differs materially from that of young, thoughtless urchins, who, if the coals were red hot, would not find them either too hot or too heavy for them. REGIUS PROFESSOR OF DIVINITY AT CAMHIIIDGE.—We are delighted to announce to the numerous friends and admirers of Doctor Ollivant among our readers, that the election for the Regius Professorship has terminated in his favour. It is not only a subject of congratulation to himself, his pupils, and his friends but it is also a. most gratifying coincidence that immediately on the close of his connection with St. David's College, of which, from its infancy, he has been so efficient and able an officer, he should be selected to fill so important and responsible an office in the University of which, in early youth, he was an eminently distinguished member; and in the honours of which he shared in, we believe, an almost unequal degree. The voting was as fol- lows :—For Dr. Oil vant, 4 for Dr. Wordsworth, 2 for Dr. Mill, 1. The electors were, the Rev. W. Whewell, B,D. (Vice-Chancellor), the Rev. George Thackeray, D.D. (Provost of King's), Joshua King, LL.D. (President of Queen's), the Rev. John Graham, D.D. (Master of Christ's), the Rev. Ralph Tatham. D.D. (Master of John's), the Rev. George Adam Browne, M.A., and the Rev. John Brown, M.A., the two senior Fellows of Trinity College. Professor Ollivant took his M.A. degree April 28, 1824, and was created D.D. July 5, 1836. Until very recently he held the office of Vice-Principal, Professor of Hebrew, and Junior Professor of Divinity in St. David's College, Lampeter. He is one of the chaplains to the Bishop of St. David's, is a Canon in the Cathedral Church of St. David's, and of St. Harman's, in the Collegiate Church of Brecon. This pro- fessorship, founded by Henry VIII., 1540, and endowed with a stipend of £ 40 per annum, was augmented by James I., with the rectory of Somersham, in the county of Hunting- don (to which are attached the curacies of Colne and Pidley), of the yearly value of £ 1,770, as returned to the Ecclesiasti- cal Commissioners.
