In theological attainments there were few, and in the qualities which endear a minister to his people, there were none to surpass him.

This bust was placed here, Dec. 16, 1843,

by a grateful congregation.

Rev. Francis William Pitt Greenwood, D. D.
The Colleague and Successor of Dr. Freeman as Pastor of this Church,
Chosen July 11, 1824. Settled Aug. 29, 1824. Died Aug. 2, 1843.

Aged 46 years.
Endowed with rare powers of observation and expression,

his services in the pulpit were distinguished

for their beauty, truth, and persuasiveness. The natural earnestness of his manner left no doubt of his sincerity;

the justness of his thoughts no room for censure; and the poetical beauty of his language no opportunity for objection. His character, as developed through long years of lingering disease,

corresponded with that of his writings;

it was truly Christian, consistent and attractive. His people have placed this bust here in affectionate commemoration

of his wisdom and his virtues, March, 1845. Harvard University. — The Inauguration of Hon. Edward Everett, LL. D. as President of the University, which took place on Thursday, April 30, 1846, was an event which the friends of the institution hailed with peculiar feelings of satisfaction and hope. The Address which Mr. Everett then delivered, showed the earnestness of purpose with which he entered on his duties, and the desire he felt to give a moral and religious tone to the academic life of which he was appointed the guardian. The influence which has since been exerted by the President discovers the same purpose, in which we trust he will be supported by every officer of the institution and every parent whose son enters the College, as well as by the clear sentiment of the community. The condition of the College is prosperous, and although changes inight undoubtedly be introduced with advantage, the instruction and discipline are such as make an education at Cambridge what every young man should desire. The vacancy created in the Dane Professorship of Law

by the death of Judge Story, has been filled by the appointment of Professor Greenleaf to that chair, and the Royall Professorship, formerly held by Mr. Greenleaf, has been accepted by Hon. William Kent of New York. Eleven young men have entered the Junior class of the Divinity School.

The Commencement exercises were attended as usual in the meetinghouse of the First Parish, on the last Wednesday of August, when' sixty-four were graduated. The honorary degree of A. M. was conferred on Mr. Nathaniel Barker of Bellevue, Geo., John W. Fessenden Esq. of Boston, and Rev. James Means of Groton; the degree of LL. D. on Benjamin Rand Esq. of Boston, Hon. William Campbell of Columbia College, S. C., Hon. Henry Black of Quebec, and Hon. Thomas Granville of London; the degree of S. T. D. on Rev. Alexander Young of Boston, and Rev. Leonard Woods, Jr., of Bowdoin College, Me.
