BIBLICAL LITERATURE.-A work has lately appeared, entitled "Motives to the Study of Biblical Literature," by Mr. William Goodhugh, which exhibits to the general reader the advantages of such study in a more clear and popular form than any work of the kind which has fallen under our observation. His medium for effecting his object is a series of lectures, of which six are devoted to the Old, and six to the New Testament; and he takes a full range of the various editions and versions of each, and also of the literature contemporary with the various inspired writers, so as to afford all the illustrations necessary to the effectual study of the sacred writings. Mr. Goodhugh has proved himself to be both a sound scholar and a man of industry and research. ·

The degree of B. D. has been conferred on the Rev. JOSEPH JAMESON, Precentor of Ripon Cathedral, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, in compliance with the unanimous request of the Dean and Chapter of Ripon.
At his rooms, in Queen's College, Cambridge, John Lodge Hubbersty, Esq. M.D. many years Senior Fellow of that Society, Deputy High Steward of the University, and late Recorder of Lancaster, in the eighty-first year of his age. Mr. Hubbersty was a native of Lancaster, and entered at the usual age at Queen's College, where he took his degree of B.A. in the year 1781, being ninth wrangler; he was elected Fellow of that Society in 1782, and at the usual time was called to the bar, where he practised for some years. The statutes of his College, however, allowing only two lay Fellows, one of whom must graduate in Law, and the other in Medicine, and the law fellowship being then occupied, Mr. Hubbersty proceeded in due course in medicine, though he never practised in that profession. Dr. Hubbersty's late years were chiefly spent in college, where his polite, amiable manners rendered him a most agreeable companion. His illness was rather a decay of nature, than any positive disease, and he was mercifully exempted from any painful suffering. For the last two months he was confined to his room, and for three or four weeks to his bed, where in humble preparation for his solemn change, he departed in peace on the 17th of November, about eleven o'clock, deeply regretted by a very extensive circle of acquaintance.
At the funeral the executors and friends of the deceased assembled at Queen's Lodge

On arriving at the church the service in the desk was read by the Rector, when three verses of the 90th Psalm were sung, and a dirge performed while the corpse was depo. sited in the vault, when the remaining part of the service was read, and the mourners and whole party retired to Queen's Lodge.
In Convocation the following Letter of thanks to Queen Adelaide, for the Portraits of herself and her late Royal Consort, recently presented to the University, was unanimously agreed to, and ordered to be sealed with the University Seal::
To Her Gracious Majesty Adelaide the Queen Dowager.
May it please your Majesty, We, the Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University of Oxford, in Convocation assembled, are desirous of expressing to your Majesty our grateful sense of the distinguished honour recently conferred upon us by the presentation of your Majesty's Portrait, together with that of your Royal Consort, our late revered Sovereign, King William the Fourth.
We shall regard these Portraits, not merely as contributing to adorn the gallery in which they are placed, but as affording additional proof of that gracious favour and condescension already evinced towards us on the occasion of your Majesty's visit to our University; an event to which we shall ever look
back with feelings of sincere gratitude and loyal devotion.
That your Majesty may, by the blessing of Providence, derive that benefit which is to be anticipated from a residence in a southern climate, and return to England with renovated health, is our earnest and devout petition at the throne of grace.
