Benet College, Cambridge, 25th October, 1820. DEAR MR NORTH, Why does not the Ensign come up to Cambridge, as he promised ? I have been looking for hiin, in his under graduate's gown, about the middle of every term these two years. However, I see he still keeps his name on the College boards, so there are some hopes of him yet. I am confident he would turn out a wrangler-among the first ten, for a dozen. He is already as well trained as most freshmen. He measures distances to a nicety; describes a circle (or, as he would call it in his unmathematical way, a ring) to adiniration; and for squaring, and bringing out the fluent, he is, I verily believe, unrivalled. Here is food for his fancy, in all her forms and figures ; and mathematics would, I am confident, give the last finishing touch to him. A mathematician is never knocked down but he can tell the reason, which is more than the primest swell at the Castle-Tavern can say at all times. If he knows the force and direction of the blow, which a man of quick parts and feeling can always discover, he can calculate how long he will be in tumbling from a stage twenty feet high, which is a great satisfaction, besides being a great help in coming to time. And should his neck, by any awkward accident, be dislocated, he is perfectly acquainted with the law by which said accident befell him.

We are rather flat here at present, but I enclose you a squiblet, which was written when Sir J. E. Smith, that knight of the gillyflower, made his grand charge on our Botanical Chair.


A Botany Bay Eclogue.

O GALLANT Sir James is come out of the North,
Through all that wild region his fame had gone forth;
Yet, save the Vice-Chancellor, friend he had none;
He came all unask'd, and he came all alone.
So daring in heart, and so dauntless in pith,
There ne'er was Professor like President Smith.
He staid not for frown, and he stopp'd not for groan ;
He put in his clamour where claim he had none;
But e'er he arriv'd at a Lecturer's state,

The tutors conspir'd-and the lectures came late.
