This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

The university of Cambridge is a society

of students in all and every of the liberal arts and
sciences, incorporated (13th Eliz.) by the name of the
Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars. The frame of
this little commonwealth standeth upon the union of
seyenteen colleges or societies, devoted to the study
of learning and knowledge, and for the better service
of the church and state. All these *colleges or halls
have been founded since the beginning of the reign of
King fEdward 1. and are maintained by the endow-
ments of their several founders and benefactors.
Each college is a body corporate, and bound by its
own statutes ; but is likewise controuled by the para-
mount laws of the University. The present university
statutes were given by Queen Elizabeth, and, with
former privileges, were sanctioned by Parliament.
They are made the foundation upon which all new
laws are framed.

Each of the seventeen departments or colleges in
this literary republic furnishes members both for the
executive and legislative branch of its government.
The place of assembly is the Senate-House.

All persons who are jMasters of Arts, or Doctors
in one or other of the three faculties, viz. Divinity,

* Colleges and balls are bere synonimons, tbongb not so at Oxford.
Tbus Claks Hall is called ^'Collesium sive Domas, sire Aula de Clace.**

fbnnd among the records in tbe Tower.

Civil Law, or Physic, having their names upon the
college boards, or resident in the town of Cambridge,
have votes in this assembly. The number of those
who have a title to the appellation of Members of the
Senate is at present upwards of a thousand. Those
who erase their names from their respective college
boards, lose the privilege of being Members of the
Senate, unless they r«-enter their names, and reside
the greater part of three several terms.

The senate is divided into two classes or houses ;
and, according to the arrangement, they are denomi>
nated Regents or Non-Regents, with a view to some
particular offices allotted to the junior division by the
statutes of the university.

Masters of Arts of less than five*years standings and
Doctors of less than two, compose the Regent or Upper
House, or, as it is otherwise called, the White Hood
House, from its members wearing their hoods lined
with white silk. All the rest constitute the Non-Regent
or Lower House, otherwise called the Black Hood
House, its members wearing black silk hoods. But
Doctors of more than two years standing, and the
Public Orator of the University, may vote in either
house, according to their pleasure.

Besides the two houses, there is a Council called the
Caput, annually chosen upon the 12th of October,
before whom every university grace must pass, before
it can be introduced into the senate.

The Vice-Chancellor, who is annually elected by the
senate, from the Masters or Heads of the colleges, on
the 4th of November, is a member of the Caput by
virtue of his office. The election, of the other members
of this council is effected in the following manner : —
The Vice-Chancellor and the two Proctors severally
nominate five persons properly qualified for the trust ;
and out of the fifteen^ the Heads of Colleges and Doc-



tors choose ^e. But in general the Vice-Chancellor's
list is honoured with the appointment.

Upon all emergencies the Vice-Chancellor calls a
meeting of the senate for the dispatch of extraordinary
affairs. This is done hy means of a printed notice,
specifying the business, hung up in the halls of the se-
veral colleges three days previous to the time of as-
sembly. Any number of members of the senate, being
not less than 26, including the proper officers, (or their
legal deputies), who, by^ virtue of their oaths, are
obliged to be present, constitute a Congregation, and
may proceed on business. There are also Statutable
Congregations, or days of assembling enjoined by
the statutes, for the^rdinary routine of university af-
fairs, such as conferring degrees, electing officers, &c.
for which no notice is required. Prior to every con-
gregation the university bell rings for the space of one
hour. Every member lias a right to present any pro-
position or grace to the consideration of the senate ;
but previously to its being voted by the two houses, it
is to be read and approved by the Council or Caput,
each member of which has a negative voice. After a
grace has passed the Caput, it is read in the Non-
Regent House by one of the two Scrutators ; and also
in the Regent House by the Senior Proctor; and the
congregation is dissolved by the Vice-Chancellor. It
is read in like manner at another congregation ; and
if it passes through without a non placet y it becomes a
statute, provided the subject is of a public nature. If
a lum placet is put in by a member of either house, it
is voted in that house ; and in such a case Jtbe sense of
the majority prevails. If circumstances require that
the Grace should be considered as a law, it formerly
was the custom to inscribe it in the Proctors' books ;
but this part of the process has of late years been but
seldom put in practice.




We have selected the following Grace as a specimen,
which passed Feb. 28, 1806: —

'^ Cum tempora quihus haetenus kaberi soUta est nuttri-
eulatiOf usu eomperta nnt tncommoda, €t propter hone
atque alias causas ipsa matricukuio ab alumnis caperit

** Placeat vobis, ut in posterum^ pro die insequente cu-
jusque termini Jinem, dies instituatur ad matriculationefk
peragendam^ qui vel proxime vel una interjecto, sequatur
mediam termini cujusque partwi; atque, ut iis qui post
decimum Octohris diem, anno Domini millesimo octingen-
tisimo quinto, intra Academiam per tres terminos com-
morati, non matriculatifuerint, nuUus omnino computetur
terminusj nisi ab illo die, in quo ^natrieulationem rite

No degree is ever conferred without a Grace for that
purpose, which undergoes the same scrutiny and pro-
cess as above related ; that for the degree of Bachelor
of Arts excepted, which only requires reading in one
congregation. After it has passed, the Vice-Chancellor
is at liberty to confer the degree. A Grace in this in-
stance is termed a Supplicat. — ^It is signed by the
Prelector of the respective college to which tlie
person belongs, who is made responsible for the asser-
tion it contains. The penalty for subscribing a false
supplicat, is two years deprivation of the privilege of
voting in the senate, or holding any public office in the

Form of a supplicat for the degree of A. M.

''ColL , UthJan. 18—.

" Supplicat reverentOs vestris A, B. ut novem termini
comphti post Jinalem ejus determinationem, in quihus or-
dinarias lectiones audiverit, (licet non omnino secundum
formam statuti) una cum omnibus oppositionibus, respoti .

ercitiis per statuta regia requisitis, suffieiant, ei ad inci-
piendum in artibus,'' " C. D. Pralector.'' "



Nate, — For every other degree there is a proper form.
