King's College School.—During the last month, his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury, accompanied by the Rev. Dr. D'Oyley, Dr. Shepherd, and the Principal, visited the school. “After an examination of nearly two hours' duration, conducted personally on the part of the Archbishop, his Grace was pleased to express himself to the masters of the different classes in high terms of approbation as to the proficiency of the pupils. It was very gratifying for his Grace to observe that an institution, in whose welfare he had ever manifested a deep interest, was steadily supported by the public, the number of pupils at present (430) showing an increase over the marimum of any previous period.
• The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress twice honoured the grounds, and Col. Wood, M. P., Col. Thomas Wood, jun. M. P. for the county, Lady Caroline Wood, Mrs. Wyndham, and all the élite of the neighbourhood, enlivened the scene by their presence.

The DEANERY OP Exeter.— The Chapter of Exeter have elected to the vacant office of their Dean, the Rev. Thomas Hill Lowe, M.A. Precentor and Canon Residentiary of Exeter. It was only at the end of six months from the vacancy, and in order to avoid a lapse, that the Chapter resorted to their ancient right of free election. We understand that they expressed throughout the greatest readiness to pay all due respect to the wishes of the Crown, and therefore postponed their election from day to day, in the hope that the Crown might recommend for their choice a person fully qualified for election under the existing law. It will be remembered, that Lord Wriothesley Russell was first nominated by the Crown, being utterly ineligible : one of the Prebendaries of the cathedral was then nominated in his stead; but in consequence of the operation of the Ecclesiastical Appointments Suspension Act, he too was incapable, according to the invariable usage of the Church, of election to the Deanery, and the Chapter very reluctantly objected to any special legislative enactment to qualify the nominee of the Crown by a partial repeal of the Suspension Act. We mention these circumstances the rather, because we see that Lord John Russell has brought in a Bill for the continuance of this very objectionable Suspension Act, which has been productive of great inconvenience at other places as well as Exeter. This Act was originally passed in 1836 for one year, and has been renewed each year since. It prejudges the question of Cathedral Reform, and assumes the right, which has never yet been shown, of Parliamentary interference in the ancient constitution of these bodies, without the consent of the Church or themselves. We hold it, therefore, to be equally unconstitutional and inexpedient; and we hope an attempt will be made to prevent its revival. If any well-digested scheme of improvement, whereby the integrity of our cathedral institutions may be preserved, and the true claims upon them properly answered, can be devised (and we have reason to think that such a scheme is in contemplation), it will be time enough to suspend appointments, when the permanent act shall have passed for "rendering ” (in the words of the Royal Commission) our cathedral institutions, and not their revenues only, conducive to the efficiency of the Established Church.”
