Memoir of the lale Francit Hyde Wollaston, B. D. Archdeacon of Essex, Sfc. Sfc.

Thk subject of this Memoir was educated, on the foundation of the Charter-House, from whence he removed to Sidney College, Cambridge, and obtained the high honour of Senior Wrangler in the <ripos of 1783. Soon after he was appointed lecturer in that college; and subsequently he became fellow and tutor of Trinity Hall. He held the office of Moderator in the Senate House Examinations in 1788 and 1789. In 1702 he was appointed Jacksoniaii Professor of Natural and Experimental Philosophy; which place he held till the year 1813; having delivered no less than twenty-one courses of lectures. His ecclesiastical preferments were the rectory of S. Weald and the -vicarage of Cold Norton, in Essex, the rectory of West Deithain, in Norfolk (the presentation to which benefice is vested in his family); together with the Archdeaconry of Essex, to which he was collated by the present bishop of London, in 1814. He died in London, October 12, 1823, at the house of his brother, Dr. Wollaston, having gone to bed at a very late hour in perfect health, and being found in the morning a corpse. His death was the effect of apoplexy.

In this short Memoir, it is not our purpose to dwell minutely upon the long and arduous services performed in the University of Cambridge by this distinguished person, in the various offices of Moderator, Fellow and Tutor of Trinity Hall, and Jacksoniaii Professor of Natural and Experimental Philosophy. The latter office he held for the long space of twenty-one years, and in the discharge of the duties attached to it, he distinguished himself uot less by his diligent and unceasing

assiduity, thau by his clear and comprehensive views of all subjects connected with the science which it was his duty to illustrate and to teach.

The Archdeacon was not, however, a mere theoretical philosopher; mathematical and chemical knowledge recommended themselves to him, not only as an exercise of the mental faculties, but as contributing to the comfort of mankind, whilst they raise our views to the great Artificer of the Universe, to the order and beauty of his creation. His invention of the Barometrical Thermometer, will be a lasting monument of his skill in applying to practice previously existing theorems, and in combining known principles for the more distinct elucidation of one particular point. This tribute of applause to the Archdeacon's merits, as a mathematician and a philosopher, we could not in justice withhold; it enhances our estimation of his character, when we perceive, that the pursuits of science, aud a long intercourse with the society of an University,' were so far from rendering him unfit for the discharge of the more active duties of public life, that they seem to have contributed, in no small degree, to increase those natural powers of speedy decision and sound judg. merit, which he displayed in the discharge of the public duties of his Archdeaconry. In filling that high and important office, he considered himself, in a literal sense, the servant of the Church. He watched with the greatest vigilance over every part of his charge; there was no place, however remote or obscure, which did uot experience the advantage of his personal inspection; he spared no labour of body, or toil of mind, to preserve the Clergy within his charge, in active attention to their duties, whilst he applied an extensive knowledge of the civil aud ecclesiastical law, to
