Should this statute be adopted by Convocation, the effect will be to do away with the Subscription to the Thirty-Nine Articles at the time of entering the University ; substituting in place of such subscription, a Subscription to the Declaration above mentioned. The Subscription to the Thirtynine Articles would, in that case, be deferred till a candidate offered himself for his first degree, when he would be called on to subscribe, and declare his assent to the Articles as heretofore.

An address to His Majesty, with reference to the present critical state of affairs, deprecating in very strong terms the alienation of the funds of the Irish Church, was yesterday proposed in the Senatehouse, and was carried in the Black Hood house by a majority of 54 to 17, and in the White Hood house by a majority of 32 to 10. It is only right to add, that several influential members of the Whig party voted in the majority, whilst others purposely absented themselves.
NEW UNIVERSITY LIBRARY. The friends and well wishers of the University, in the provincial towns, are
active in furthering this most important object; and we observe, with great satisfaction, that the following resolutions have been passed at a meeting at Wakefield, and circulated in that district:—
"At a meeting of the members of the University of Cambridge, held in the West Riding Proprietary School, at Wakefield, on the 2d of April, 1835, the Right Hon. the Earl of Mexborough in the chair, the following resolutions were unanimously agreed to:—
"Whereas, it appears that the present University Library at Cambridge is totally inadequate to the reception of the books which are daily accumulating, and thet its rooms are for the most part confined and incommodious, and even at this time unequal to the proper and convenient stowage of the great treasures which it contains; and that the funds of the University are wholly insufficient to meet the large expenditure necessary for the erection of a new library, in consequence of the great sums already expended upon public buildings:
"It is resolved unanimously, that the * members of the University of Cambridge now present, rejoicing to hear of the great success and zealous support which have rewarded the exertions of the Syndicate (constituted by a grace of the Senate, passed unanimously on the 4th March nit.) for the purpose of soliciting and receiving subscriptions to be applied to the building of a new library, do form themselves into an Association, to co-operate with the Library Syndicate, and to solicit subscriptions from such members and friends of the University as may be personally known to each individual,
"And further—That meetings of the Association be held every Wednesday and Saturday at 12 o'clock, in the West Riding Proprietary School, and that, in ordinary cases, four members have power to act for the whole; and that it shall be in the power of four members to call a special meeting, if circumstances should require one.
"And further—That the Rev. R. J. Bunch be appointed Secretary, and J. M. Robinson, Esq. Treasurer, to receive subscriptions,
CAMBRIDGE PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY.
March 30.—A paper, by Augustus de Morgan, Esq. of Trinity College, was read, containing remarks on the Memoir of M. Abel, relative to the algebraical expression of the roots of equations which are connected by the law of periodic functions. Afterwards, Mr. Whewell exhibited and explained a new anemometer, the object of which is to measure the whole amount of the wind which blows in
each direction in a given time, and thus to
make measures of the wind in different
times and places, comparable with each
other. He pointed out, also, how such
measures might be employed, so as to
compose a type of the annual course of the
winds at each place, and thus to solve
several important problems in meteorology.

term:—Mondays, May 4, 18, and June I,

Art. I.—Neutrality in Time of Danger to the Church, an Abandonment of the Faith, and very Short-sighted Worldly Policy: An Admonition to the Members of the Church of England, delivered in a Sermon at South-Hackney Church, on Sunday, April 5, 1835. By the Rev. H. H. Norms, M. A. Rector of the said Parish, Prebendary of St. Paul's and Llandaff, and Chaplain to the Earl of Shaftesbury. London: Rivingtons; Cochran; Cock; & Wix. 1835. 8vo. Pp. 30.
In the present crisis of the Church, there are two classes of persons who need special admonition: indolent Churchmen, and religious dissenters. We would not willingly abandon the idea that there is yet a remnant of the latter class; men who by the prejudices of education, or the exercise of what we deem mistaken judgment, have been led to attach themselves to some dissenting communion; but who yet are so far from regarding the Church with hostility, that they see, no less clearly than ourselves, that on the article of her existence depends, in all human calculation, the continuance of the gospel faith among us; that she is not only the bulwark, but even the citadel of Protestantism; and that, with her fall, all that is christian in dissent must perish likewise. If such dissenters yet exist, they altogether mistake their policy in continuing dissenters. If they would see the Church maintained> they must join her array, and combat on her side. Prejudices and minor differences must be forgotten: the fact that Christianity, as regards these realms, is in danger, is quite enough to show that they cannot be guiltless, if they delay to come "to the help of the Lord against the mighty." If these considerations be true as regards dissenters, they
