Notes of the 'Week. Some time ago we said that Mr. Glad stone might in all probability reccom- . mend the Queen to appoint Dr. James Fraser, at present Protestant Bishop of Manchester, Bishop of London. We were mistaken for once. The Queen has appointed Dr. Frederick Temple, BishoD of Exeter, to the vacancv in London. When we first knew Dr. Temple he was head master of the celebrated school at Rugby. He was afterwards appointed one of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools and Inspector of Training Colleges for Sohoolmasters. He was then made Bishop of Exeter. He is a distinguished classical and mathematical scholar and was a double first-class man of Oxford, that' is to say, like Mr. Gladstone, and Lord Selborne, the present Lord Chancellor, he was in the first class in classics ; and the first in mathematics. He wrote, an essay in the well known volume, ' Essays and Reviews ' which gave great offence to many persons. The Very Rev. Dr. Bickersteth, Dean of Gloucester succeeds, Dr. Tem...
