TRAVELLING BACHELORS.

1

WILLIAM WORTS, M.A. of Caius College, formerly one of the Esquire Bedells of this University, gave two pensions of £100. per annum each, to two junior Bachelors of Arts, nominated by the Master of the college whose turn it is to present, and elected by the Senate, at which election the Vice-Chancellor and the Proctors stand in scrutiny, the senior of whom, after reading the votes, declares the election. The Bachelors are required to visit foreign countries, to take different routes, and severally to write, during their travels, at least one Latin letter in each year, descriptive of the customs, curiosities, &c. &c.; which letters, as soon as received by the Vice-Chancellor, are laid before the Senate, and afterwards deposited in the Public Library.

The income of these travellers is continued for the space of three years, the period they are obliged to be absent.

ANNUAL PRIZES.

Classical.

CHANCELLOR'S MEDALLISTS.

WO gold medals, value 15 guineas each, are given annually by the CHANCELLOR of the University, to two commencing 1 Bachelors of Arts, who, having obtained Senior Optimes at least, shew themselves the greatest proficients in classical learning. On the day after the first Tripos Day, the candidates for these medals send in their names to the Vice-Chancellor, who appoints an early day for examination, of which notice is given to the several candidates. The successful candidates declaim on the second Tripos Day, upon a subject appointed by the Vice-Chancellor. These prizes were establishsd in 1751, by his Grace Thomas Holles, Duke of Newcastle, and have been continued by the succeeding Chancellors. H. R. H. the Duke of Gloucester, the late Chancellor, gave annually, a third gold medal, to be conferred upon a resident undergraduate, who shall compose in English the best ode or best poem in heroic verse2. The present Chancellor, the MARQUESS CAMDEN, continues this prize. The subject is given out at the end of Michaelmas Term, and the exercises are to be sent in to the Vice-Chancellor on or before the 31st of March following, and are not to exceed 200 lines. Each candidate is to send his exercise privately: each is to have some motto prefixed; and to be accompanied by a paper sealed up, with the same motto on the outside which paper is to enclose another, folded up, having the candidate's name and college written within. The papers containing the names of those persons who do not succeed, are destroyed unopened. No prize will be given to any exercise which is written, wholly, or in part (or of which the title, motto, superscription, address, &c., are written), in the hand-writing of the candidate nor to any one who has not, at the time for sending in the exercises, resided one term at least. Any candidate is at liberty to send in his exercise printed or lithographed. The successful candidate recites his Poem in the Senate House on Commencementday. The examiners appointed by HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS to determine all these prizes are, the Vice-Chancellor, the Provost of King's, the Masters of Trinity, St John's, St Peter's, Clare Hall, and Christ's, the senior resident Fellow of Trinity who has gained a medal3, the Public Orator, the Greek Professor, and the Professor of Modern History.

1 No one is a complete Bachelor until after the second Tripos Day.

2 Several of these Poems have been published nader the title of "Cambridge Prize Poems."
