The Bishop of London has appointed the Rev Dr W. H.
Barlow (B.A. i857)Â» Vicar of Islington, to the Prebendal Stall in
St Paul's Cathedral, vacant by the death of Bishop Billing. The
St James Gazette^ in announcing the appointment, adds: "At
one time comparatively few of the really important and powerful
clergy of the diocese were to be found on the Chapter of St
PauKs, but the old reproach is now being rolled away. Dr
Barlow's appointment is justified not only by the great impor-
tance of the living he holds, but also by his own work on many
of the diocesan organizations. If Prebendal Stalls are a reward
for such exertions, no man could be more fittingly chosen.*'

Paul's, Ballarat, and Archdeacon of Ballarat.
The Rev George Washington (B.A. 1857), Chaplain of St
George's, Rue August Vecquerie, Paris, has been elected one of

348 Our Chronicle.
The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council have decided
to extend, by a period of five years, the term of the Patent
granted 23 April 1884. to the Hon C. A. Parsons (B.A. 1877) for
â€¢* improvements in rotary motors actuated by elastic fluid pres-
sure and applicable also as pumps." Lord Macnaghten, in
giving their Lordships' reasons, said the invention which was
the subject of the patent was one of conspicuous merit. It had
solved a problem which for a hundred years and more had
exercised and baffled the ingenuity of inventors. Many persons
had endeavomed to employ the velocity of steam for the pur-
pose of causing rotary motion without the intervention of any
reciprocating apparatus. But no one before Mr Parsons ever
succeeded in producing a steam turbine of practical utility.
Mr Parsons had his attention directed to the subject while he
was a student at Cambridge, and he devoted much time and
thought to it then. But it was only after prolonged research
and many experiments that he was able to determine the con-
ditions of success. Mr Parsons stated in his specification that
motors, according to his invention, were applicable to a variety
of purposes. Practically, however, up to the present time they
had been applied only to the two purposes of electric lighting
and marine propulsion. For the purpose of electric lighting
the invention seemed to be specially adapted. In dispensing
with reciprocating action Mr Parsons got rid of vibration. It
thus became possible to establish electrical stations in populous
places, and to use the most powerful engines there without fear
of being stopped by an injunction on the ground of nuisance.
As regarded marine propulsion, only one vessel so far had been
equipped with Mr Parsons* invention. The success of that
experiment, however (as their Lordships were informed), induced
the Admiralty to order two vessels of a similar type, one of
which was guaranteed to attain the speed of 35 knots. Lord
Kelvin, when examined as a witness, expressed his opinion that
there was a great future for steam turbines, and that, for some
purposes, Mr Parsons*s invention was likely to supersede the
reciprocating type of engines.
We take the following paragraph with regard to Mr Edmund
Boulnois MP. (B.A. 1 862) from the Daily Telegraph of March 3rd.
Mr Boulnois was stroke of the First Boat in 1859 and i860, and
stroked the Four in the October Term of i860 : â€” " Mr Boulnois
holds an important place in the Metropolitan Unionist Party.
He is its Chancellor of the Exchequer and general utility man.
He is the descendant of an old Huguenot family, which settled
in the East of England. Mr Boulnois' father was, in bis day,
a famous whip, and it was a favourite pastime of his to drive
the Norwich coach. His chief title to fame lies in the fact that
he introduced the 'hansom' to the London streets. It was
doubtless to this intimate connection of the elder Mr Boulnois
vith the interests of the road that we to-day find the member
Our Chronicle^ 349
fbt East Marylebone the proprietor of the well-known Baker
Street Bazaar, which probably supplies more carriages lo * the
classes' than any other establishment in the country. Mr
Boulnois was born on June 17th, 1838, and was educated at
King Edward's School, Bury St Edmund's, and St John's
College, Cambridge, where he took honours in the schools and
stroked his college boat. He was a member of the Metropolitan
Board of Works, and has for many years played a prominent
part in Marylebone life. When Lord Charles Beresford retired
from Parliament Mr Boulnois was elected to succeed him in the
representation of East Marylebone* He proved himself one of
the hardest working and most useful of the metropolitan mem-
bers, always being at the call of the whips, and ready to take
his share of committee duty. In the Lobby he is one of the
most familiar figures Even poor Sir Henry Havelock-Allan,
who was a devoted habilu^ of the Parliamentary Green Room,
had to yield the pas to him in the matter of regularity of atten*
dance. During the session if Mr Boulnois fails to appear in his
familiar place it is a moral certainty that he is to be found at
Spring Gardens, which has the second place in his affections*
Besides being a member of Parliament and a County Councillor,
Mr Boulnois fills several important directorships, including the
chairmanship of the West Middlesex Water Works.

Tryal ; but before tne Jury was sworn, he retracted bis former Plea, and
pleaded guilty. In Miiigaiion of his Crime, he alledg'd. That he had never
taken the Oaths to King George ; and that, when he was among the Rebels,
he disapprov'd of many of their Proceedings, and took the first Opportunity
to get away, which he actually did before the Action at Preslon : However^
he would not insist on that, bat threw himself on the King's Mercy, sincerely
repenting of his Fauk; and begg'd llie Intercession of the Court in his
Favour. After this, his Flea being recorded, he received Sentence of Death
as in Cases of High Treason. In Pursuance of which Sentence, he was, on
the I3lh of July following, drawn on a Sledge, together with Mr Hall, of
whom we have spoken before, frottr Newgate to Tyburn. He went to the
I'lace of Execution m the Canonical Habit of the Church of England, which
so rais'd the Com}?assioi> of the People, that many of them sighM, sobb'd, and
wept bitieily;. nay, some of them, particularly of the Women, snatch'd
K-isses from \kvct as he pass'd by them. Bemg come to Tyburn, and put out
of the Sledge into a Cait, after he had pray*d some Time by himself, he
begun to read his Speech to the People, which containing Refkclions on the
late Revolution, and on the present Settlement both in Church and State, he
was interrupted by some that stood by, who told him, that this was not a
Place to Preach up Rebellion, and that no Body thete would care to hear his
seditious Harangue. Upon this he stopt, and gave his Speech to the
Sheriffs of London ; then being executed, as in Cases of High Treason, his
Limbs were given to his Relations, who caus'd them to be interr'd in the
Church-yard of St. Giles' in the Fields. The next Day the Pape* he had

I am just going to make my Appearance in the other World, where X
must give an Account of ail the Actions of my past Life, and tho' I have
endeavoured to make my Peace with God by sincerely repenting of all my
Sins ; yet, forasmuch as several of them are of a publick Nature, I take it
to be my Doty to declare, here in the Face of the World, my hearty
Abhorrence and Detestation of them, and fkst, I ask Pardon of God and
the Kmg for having violated my Loyalty, by taking most abominable Oaths-
in Defence of Usurpation, against my lawful Sovere^n King James the^
And as I ask P^don of all Persons whonk I have injur'd or offended, so
I do especially desire Forgiveness of all those whom I have scaudaliz'd by
pleading guilty .> I am sensible that it is a base and dishonourable Action v
that it is inconsistent with my Duty to the King, and an entire Surrender of
my Loyalty. Hunuin Frailty, and k>o gieat a Desire of Life, together witb
the Perswasions of several who pretended to be my Friends, were the
Occasion of it. I ttust God of his infinite Mercy, upon my sincere Repent-
ance, has forgiven me, and I hope all good Christians wUl.
You see, my Country-men, by my Habit, that I die a Son, tho' a very
unworthy one, of the Church of England. But I would not have you think
that I am a Member of the Schismatical Church, whose Bishops set them-
selves up in Opposition to those Orthodox Fathers, who were unlawfully and
invalidly depriv'd by the Prince of Orange. I declare, that I renounce that
Communion, and that I die a dttliful and faithful Member of the Nonjunng^
Church, which has kept it self free from Rebellion and Schism, and has
preserv'd and maintain'd true Orthodox Principles, both as to Church and
State. And I desire the Clergy, and all Members of the Revolution-Church,
to consider what Bottom they stand upon, when their Succession is grounded
upon an unlawful and invalid Deprivation of Catholick Bishops ; the only
Foundation of which Deprivation, is a pretended Act of Parliament.
Having ask'd Forgiveness for my self, I come now to forgive otheis. I

fwirdon tliose who, under the Notion of Friendship, perswaded me to plead
guilty. I heartily forgive all my most inveterate Enemies, especially thq
Elector of Haaover, my Lord Townshend, and all others who have been
instrumental in promoting my Death. Father, forgive them : Lord Jesus
have Mercy upon them, and lay not this Sin to their Charge.
The next thing I have to do. Christian Friends, is to exhort you all to
return to your Duty. Remember that King James the third is your only
rightful Sovereign by the Laws of the Land, and the Constitution of tho
Kingdom ; and therefore, if you would perform the Duty of Justice to him,
which is due to ail Mankind, you are oblig'd in Conscience to do all you can
to restore him to his Crown. For it is his Right, and no Man in the World
besides himself, can lawfully claim a Title to it. And as it is your Duty to
serve him, so it is your Interest ; for 'till he is restor*d, the Nation can never
l>e happy. You see what Miseries an<l Calamities have befallen these King*
doms by the Revoiation ; and I believe you are now convinc'd by woful
Experience, that swerving from God's Laws, and thereby putting your selves
out of his Protection, is not the Way to secure you from those Evils and
Misfortunes which you are afraid of in this World. Before the Revolution,
you thought your Religion, Liberties, and Properties in Danger ; and I pray
you to consider how you have preserved them by rebelling ? Are "they not
Icn times more precarious than ever ? Who can say he is certain of his Life
or Estate, when he considers the Proceedings of the present Administration ?
And as for your Religion, is it not evident that the Revolution, instead of
Jceeping out Popery, has let in Atheism ? Do not Heresies abound every
Day ? And are not the Teachers of false Doctrines patroniz'd by the Great
Men in the Government ? This shews the Kindness and Affection they have
for the Chvrch. And, to g^ve you another Instance of their Respect aa4
Reverence for it, you are now going to see a Priest of the Church of England
vnurderM for doing his Duty. For it is not me they strike at so particularly^
but it is through me that they would wound the Priesthood, bring a Disgrace
upon the Gown, and a Scandal upon my sacred Function. But they would
do well to remember, that he who despises Christ's Priests, despises Christ x
and who despises him, despises him that sent him.
And now, Beloved, if you have any Regard to your Couqtry, which lies,
bleeding under these dreadful Extremities, bring the King to his just and
undoubted Right ; that is the only Way to be freed from these Misfortunes,
and to secure all those Rights and Privileges which are in Danger at present.
King James has promis'd to protect and defend the Church of England ; he
has given his Royal Word to consent to SQch Laws which you your selves
shall think necessary to be made for its Preservatio;i ; and his Majesty is 4.
JPrince of that Justice, Virtue, and lionour, that you have no Manner of
Reason to doubt the Performance of his I^oyal Promise. He studies nothing
so much as how to make you all easy and happy ; and when ever he comes
Co his Kingdom, I doubt not but you will be so.
I shall be heartily glad, good -People, if what I have said has any Effect
upon you, so as to be instrumental in making you perform your Duty : It is
out of my Power now to do any Thing more to serve the King, than by
employing some of the few Nfinutes I have to live jn this World, in praying
to Almighty God to shower down his Blessings spiritual and temporal upon
his Head, to protect hjm, and restore him, to be favourable to his Under-
taking, to prosper him here, and to reward him hereafter. I beseech the
same infinite Goodness, to preserve and defend the Chuich of England, and
to restore it to all its just Rights and Privileges : And lastly, I pray God
have Mercy upon me, pardon my Sins, and receive my Soul into his everlasting
Kingdom, that with the Patriarchs, Prophets, Apostles, and Martyrs, I may
praise and magnify him for ever and ever. Amen.
As to my Body, Brethren, I have taken no. Manner of Care of it ; for T
value not the barbarous Part of the Sentence, of being cot down and (juarter'd ;
When I am once gone, I shall be out of the Reach of my Enemies ,* and I

<' This unfortunate Clergy-raan, who llv'd and dy'd a Batchelor, was tlie
Son of Mr. John Paul of Little Ashby near Lutterworth, in the County of
Leicester : His Mother was Daughter to Mr. Barfoot of Street-fields in
Warwickshire. They had a freehold Estate at Little Ashby, of about
ieveniy Pounds a Year, Iiv*d in good Repute, and had five Children, of
which this William Paul was the eldest : He was born at Ashby in the Year
1678 : He was sent to School, and Iearn*d his first Rudiments of Learning
under Mr. Thomas Seagrave, Rector of Leir in Leicestershire : About the
Year 1697 he was remov'd to a Free-School at Rugby in Warwickshire, and
remained there under the Care of Mr. Holyoak, the Master thereof, for near
two Years; from thence he went to Cambridge, and was admitted inta
St. John's College in May 1698. He was at first a Sizer, and then made
Scholar : He took bis Batchelor of Arts Degree in 1702, and soon aAer went
into Orders. After which, he was Curate of Carlton Curlieu near Harbrough
in Leicestershire, and at the same time Chaplain to Sir Geoffry Palmer.
From thence he went to Tamworth in Staitordsthire, where he was aba
Curate, and Usher of the FreeÂ«School there ; He went from thence to NonÂ«
Â£aton in Warwickshire, where he was Curate likewise. Here he conlinu'd
'till by the late Lord Bishop of Ozon, he was presented to the Vicaridge of
Orton on the Hill in Leicestershire, worth about sixty Pounds per Annum.
He was instituted into this Benefice by the present Arch -bishop of Canter*

for it, took the Oaths enjoin' d by the Government. He went with Mr
Gascoigne and others to meet the Rebels at Preston; on his Way thither
was seiz'd by Major Biadshaw, and one Matthews, a Clergy-man ; but was
set at Liberty again by Colonel Noel, a Justice of Peace in that Country.
After this, he went to Preston, where he read Prayers to the Rebels three
days together, in the Parish-Church there, and pray'd for the IVetcnder by
the name of King James the third. But just before King George's Troops
invested that Town, he made his Escape out of it, and only callinÂ» in his own

A CoLLKOK Song.
I O the life of a Student's the life made for me,
By the Cam or the Isis, the Seine or the Spree!
But the best of all Students, or more is the pity,
Are the Students who gather in Sheffield's black city !

With (heir minds ever shrinking, their hearts growing cold ?
The Student who lives with the great ones of yore
Has more in his garret than they in their store I

3 For life's little hardships, 'tis litlle we care :
We've a world of our own and they can't enter there.
We have Newton to lead us, and Shelley to sing,
So, if the flies sling us, Amen, let tliem sting !
Chorus.â€” O Studiose, etc.

When he conquers a poser and feels himself grown.
When he sees a bit deeper in nature or man.
And thinks a bit harder than simple folks can.
