THE Professors, previous to the year 1773, were elected by a Grace of the Senate; but there being several competitors for the office at that time, this mode of election became impracticable; and, as it appeared that no adequate provision had been made for such cases, it was decided that the election should, on that occasion, be "more burgensium:" by a Grace dated 24th October, 1793, it was determined that all subsequent elections to this Professorship should be in the same manner.

It appears, by the Graces appointing the first Professors, that a house and apparatus were attached to this Professorship: but there is now no apparatus exclusive of what is the private property of the Professor. A Course of Thirty Lectures, on the general principles of Chemistry, is given during the Lent Term, in the Schools in the Botanical Garden; and Twenty Lectures, principally on Organic Chemistry, during the Easter Term, in the rooms recently added to the north end of the same building.

The Medical Students are required to attend these Lectures, under the same regulations as those of the Anatomical Professor. The Salary is £100. per annum, which is paid by the Lords Commissioners of her Majesty's Treasury, on exhibiting a certificate of the delivery of a Course of Lectures.

ASTRONOMY AND EXPERIMENTAL PHILOSOPHY. THE Candidates may be bachelors, married men, Englishmen (Nostrates), or Foreigners. The election is not to be before the thirtieth, nor protracted beyond the sixtieth day after the schedule is affixed. The electors are, the Vice-Chancellor, the Masters of Trinity, Christ's and Caius colleges, and the Lucasian Professor. If any of the Masters be Vice-Chancellor, the Master of St John's acts in his stead. Founded by Dr PLUME, Archdeacon of Rochester, 1704.

This Professorship was endowed with the rent of an estate situated at Balsham. The stipend was increased by the bequest of Dr Smith; £50. per annum being left by him to the Plumian Professor, on condition of an examination for Smith's Prizes being annually made. The late Professor having represented to the University, that the income of the Professorship offered no adequate remuneration for the increased labours occasioned by the superintendence of the Observatory, a Grace of the Senate was passed Feb. 27, 1829, for granting annually to the Professor from the Common Chest (by Grace), such a sum as would raise the income of the Professorship to £500. per annum.

the division of each), between the hours of one and two. The terms of attendance are five guineas for each of two courses: afterwards gratis.

These Lectures (a certificate of attendance on which, provided they amount to fifty in number, is required by the Senate from Candidates for medical degrees,) explain the general and special Anatomy of the human body, together with the principles of Physiology.

The pupils have the opportunity of dissecting in private.


THIS rich and interesting Collection, now placed in commodious buildings lately erected at great cost by the University, is under the care and superintendence of the Professor of Anatomy for the time being. It is used by him and by the Regius Professor of Physic, for the illustration of their respective lectures. It originated in a small number of choice preparations which were presented to the University by Mr Lawrence. The Museum of the late Sir Busick Harwood was afterwards added to it by purchase: and further acquisitions were made at various times, with grants of money from the common chest, particularly on occasion of the sale of Mr Brooks's Museum, and when a series of models in wax was executed under the direction of the present Professor at Florence and Bologna. From these sources, and from the donations of many friends of the University, this portion of the Collection consists of more than thirteen hundred specimens.

In the year 1836, the rare and valuable collection of Dr Macartney, Professor of Anatomy in Trinity College, Dublin, was purchased by the University. This consists of more than two thousand specimens, and is an acquisition by which the riches of the Museum have in every department, except the osteological, been more than doubled.

A descriptive Catalogue of the entire Museum is in course of preparation. It will distinctly record the names of each of the donors, or authors of the works, which it enumerates.

By a Grace of the Senate, passed Nov. 16, 1836, the Museum is at all times open to the Regius Professor of Physic; to the other Professors of Medicine or Natural Science, to Doctors and Bachelors of Physic, and to all Students attending the Lectures of the Regius Professor of Physic and of the Professor of Anatomy, or of any of the above-described Professors, from Eleven to Twelve every day, with the exception of Sundays, Christmas-day, and Good Friday. It is also open to all Graduates, and to Visiters introduced by any Member of the Senate, from Two till Three on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
