Hodgson, the Rev. William, D.D., Master of St. Peter's, Cambridge, 16th Oct. Dr. Hodgson was the thirty-seventh Master of St. Peter's, since the foundation of the College. At the period of his decease, he was in the forty-seventh year of his age, and the tenth of his mastership. His entrance at the University bears date in 1819, and his Bachelor's degree in 1823-a year known as Airey's 's year," from the fact of the Astronomer Royal having been Senior Wrangler on that occasion. Mr. Hodgson held the place of Eleventh Wrangler. In 1826, he proceeded to his Master's degree; in 1833, was created B.D.; and, in 1838, obtained the Presidency of St. Peter's, at the death of the Venerable Dr. Barnes; and, very shortly after, he became D.D. Few members of the learned community of which he formed part were more universally beloved and respected. For some time past, he had been in a declining state of health, but no immediate danger was apprehended until shortly before the fatal termination of his illness. The College Chapel will be hung with black, and all outward testimonies of respect to the deceased Principal will be observed by the authorities. Dr. Hodgson married, in 1838, Charlotte, daughter of General Tarleton, of Chester, and leaves issue, two sons and one daughter.

Horseley, the very Rev. Heneage, Dean of Brechin, 6th Oct., aged 72. Howard, Henry, Esq., R.A., 5th Oct., aged 77. Mr. Howard, the Royal Academician, was Secretary to the Academy, and the Professor of Painting in that Institution. The professional career of this distinguished artist commenced in 1794, when he sent from Rome, where he was then residing, "The Dream of Cain," from Gesner's, "Death of Abel," for the Royal Academy Exhibition of that year. In the following season he was living in the Strand, and exhibited at Somerset House "Puck," from "Midsummer Night's Dream," "Ariel and Satan awakening in the Burning Lake," and, for nearly forty years, he continued to contribute without intermission to the annual displays of the Royal Academy. In 1801 he was elected an associate; and, in 1808, an Academician of that Corporation; and, at the period of his decease, was the third senior Royal Academician. On the death of Mr. Richards, in 1811, Mr. Howard was appointed Secretary to the Academy, the duties of which office he continued to discharge till his advanced years rendered the services of a deputy necessary, and Mr. Knight was nominated as such. Mr. Howard filled for some years the important office of Professor of Painting to the Academy, to which he was appointed in 1833. Although devoted throughout a long life to the poetic portion of his art, Mr. Howard at one time applied much of his practice to portrait painting. Numerous and excellent as were his early productions, he does not appear to have met with many patrons. One, however, was a host in himself, and this was Sir John Soane, who was a valued friend. Several of Mr. Howard's pictures now adorn the Soane Museum in Lincoln's-inn-fields.
