the dividends thereof should be applied " in the purchase of books on
Theology and Classical Literature," and no part given in money.
The bequest was accepted by Convocation in February 1833. Each
Scholarship was made tenable for two years. Candidates were required
to have passed the Examinations for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, and
not to have completed the fifth year from their matriculation. But,
by Statutes which the University was specially empowered to make in
1863, one moiety of the endowment was united with Mrs. Denyer's
fund to maintain the Theological Scholarships described in the next
article, and the proceeds of the other moiety are given annually in
money to the Senior Mathematical Scholar of the year, who is called
the " Johnson University Scholar."

The Examination took place in Easter Term. The Examiners,
three in number, who were obliged to be at least Masters of Arts
or Bachelors of Civil Law, were appointed by the Presidents of Mag-
dalen and Trinity Colleges, the Dean of Christ Church, the Warden
of New College, and the Provost of Queen's College.

Denyee, and Johnson Scholab ships.

In the year 1863, by a Statute which the University was specially
empowered to make, three Scholarships for the promotion of the study
of Theology were established in lieu of Dr. Johnson's Theological
Scholarship described in the last article and of Mrs. Denyer's Prizes
for two Theological Essays described at page L51, and the joint revenue
of those two foundations, amounting now to about ,£'120, was appointed
for their endowment. By a Statute passed in 1878, amending the be-
fore-mentioned Statute, the Scholarships were reduced to two, of the
yearly value of ,£50 each. The Scholars are elected in the following

Any Bachelor of Arts, who has not exceeded twenty-seven Terms from
his matriculation, may present himself for this Examination, which
is holden every year in Hilary Term. The standing of Candidates
who have matriculated at Cambridge or Dublin before matriculating
at Oxford is computed from the date of matriculation at Cambridge or
Dublin as the case may be, Easter Term in either of those Universities
being reckoned as equivalent to Easter and Trinity Terms at Oxford.
The Examiners, three in number, are nominated by the Electors of
the Examiners in the Honour School of Theology, and must be Mem-
bers of Convocation in Priest's Orders.

The subjects of the Examination are fixed each year by the Board
of the Faculty of Theology.

The Scholarships are tenable for one year only.

Hertfokd Scholarship.

On the dissolution of Hertford College, consequent upon the death
of its last Principal in 1805, part of its property fell to the Crown ;
and in 1818 Letters Patent passed the Great Seal, granting some of
this to the use of Magdalen Hall, hut giving one portion, now re-
presented hy a sum of ,£1251 14s. Id. invested on mortgage, to the
University upon trust to pay the dividends, after the death of the
Eev. Richard Hewitt, M.A., the only remaining Fellow of the College,
to an Undergraduate chosen " hy free competition and public examin-
ation " according to such Statutes as should be made by Convocation.
Accordingly a Scholarship for the promotion of the study of Latin was
established by Statute in 1834.

The Scholarship is tenable for one year only. The election takes
place in Michaelmas Term. Candidates must not have completed two
years from their matriculation.

The Examiners, three in number, who must be at least Masters of
Arts or Bachelors of Civil Law, are nominated by the Vice-Chancellor
and Proctors, subject to the approval of Convocation.

Tatloe Scholarships.

In furtherance of the object of Sir Kobert Taylor, as stated in the
Article on the " Taylor Institution," four Scholarships for proficiency
in Modern Languages were established in the year 1857. They were
tenable for two years. Two Scholars were elected every year, one for
proficiency in German and in some other language taught in the Insti-
tution, the other for proficiency in French and in some other language
taught there. Each received ,£25 a-year from the Taylor Fund.
Candidates were not to have exceeded the age of twenty-four years at
the time of the election. Under a new Statute made in 1869, one
Scholarship worth ,£50 and one Exhibition worth £25, each tenable
for one year, are awarded annually for proficiency in one or more of
the languages taught in the Institution (a year's notice thereof having-
been given), in Comparative Philology as applied to the same, and in
the literature of the selected language or languages.

1 Owing to a change in the time of holding the examination, two elections were
made in 1885, one in Hilary Term and the other in Michaelmas Term.


Candidates must not have exceeded the twenty-third Term from
their matriculation.

In the year 1860, Miss Angela Burdett-Coutts, afterwards Baroness
Burdett-Coutts, daughter and heiress of the late Sir Francis Burdett,
Baronet, having presented to the University " the Pengelly Collection "
of Devonshire Fossils, proceeded to found two Scholarships for the pro-
motion of " the study of Geology and of Natural Science as bearing
on Geology," and gave ,£5000 in £3 per cent. Consolidated Annuities
for their endowment. Owing to a change of investment the annual
income of the fund now exceeds ^'230.

Each Scholarship is tenable for two years. One Scholar, and one
only, is elected every year in Hilary Term. Candidates must have
passed all necessary Examinations for the degree of B.A., and not have
exceeded the twenty-seventh Term from their matriculation.

The Examiners are the Professor of Geology and two other Members
of the University, of whom one must be a Professor ; the two latter being
nominated, subject to the approval of Convocation, by the Trustees of
the Foundation, who are the Vice-Chancellor, the President of Magdalen
College, and the Begins Professor of Medicine.

University. The Scholarship is now of the annual value of about ,£157.

The Trustees are the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire, the Earl of
Derby, the Chancellor, the Vice- Chancellor, the two Burgesses of tin-
University, and the Dean of Christ ( Ihnrch, for the time being, together
with the Right Hon. John, Lord Winmarleigh, so long as he shall be
pleased to continue in the trust. These, after defraying necessary ex-
penses from the dividends, pay the remainder to a member of the
University, chosen by themselves, who has completed his twentieth
and not exceeded his twenty -fourth Term from matriculation on the day
fixed for receiving the names of Candidates.

Candidates must have obtained the following Academical distinc-
tions : — 1. A First Class in Litt. Gr. et Lat. at the First Public Exam-

Davis Chinese Scholarship.

Sir John Francis Davis, Bart,, K.C.B., F.E.S., D.C.L. (sometime
H. M. Plenipotentiary in China), having in the year 1876 transferred
the sum of ,£1666 13s. 4/7. Consols to the University, for the purpose
of endowing a Scholarship for the encouragement of the study of
Chinese in such manner and subject to such regulations as the TJni-


versity should from time to time determine, the University, by a Statute
passed in January 1877, enacted that there should be a Scholarship,
called the Davis Scholarship, for proficiency in the Chinese language
and literature, with an annual stipend of ,£50, payable terminally,
open to all members of the University who on the clay of election
should not have exceeded the twenty-eighth Term from their matricu-

The Scholar is elected by the Yice-C'hancellor, the President of
Corpus Christi College (or, if the President be Vice-Chancellor, the
Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor), and the Professor of Chinese, after an
examination held by such persons as they may appoint for that purpose,
the Professor himself being always one of the Examiners.

The Scholarship is tenable for two calendar years from the day of
election, provided the Scholar keep a statutable residence of not less
than seven weeks in each Term, Easter and Trinity Terms being
reckoned as one, and pursue his studies in Chinese under the advice
and supervision of the Professor.

If at the time of holding an election the Electors do not think any
of the candidates worthy of the Scholarship, they have power to post-
pone the election for any period not exceeding two years, and, in such
an event, to grant the annual stipend of ,£'50, or any less sum, under
