POETRY PROFESSORSHIP. Documents erplanatory of the contest between
the Rev. Mr. Garbett and the Rev. Mr. Williams, for the Chair of Poetry in the University of Oxford.
“ Christ Church, Nov. 17, 1841. “Sir,- Understanding that a circular is being sent round to all the Members of Convocation, soliciting their votes for the Rev. J. Garbett, late Fellow of Brasenose, and now Rector of Clayton, Sussex, in the approaching election for the Professorship of Poetry, I take the liberty of mentioning some circumstances, which may influence your decision, and with which you are possibly unacquainted.
“ The Rev. Isaac Williams, M.A., Fel. low of Trinity, was, before our recent unhappy divisions, generally thought by resident members of the University, to be marked out by his poetic talents to fill that chair, whenever it should become vacant. In 1823 he gained the prize for Latin Verse ; his subsequent larger works, “The Cathedral," and "Thoughts in Past Years, speak for themselves, both bearing the rich character of our early English Poetry.
“ To those unacquainted with his character, or who know him only through the medium of newspaper controversy, it may be necessary to state, that the uniform tendency of his writings and influence has been to calm men's minds amid our un
happy divisions, and to form them in dutifui allegiance to that Church of which he is himself a reverential son and minister.
“ He is also a resident; whereas employments which involved non-residence were considered a sufficient reason to prevent a member of a leading College from being brought forward by its head.
** On the other hand, it is a known fact, that Mr. Garbett would not even now have been brought forward, except to prevent the election of Mr. Williams.
“ Under these circumstances; it is earnestly hoped that the University will not, by the rejection of such a candidate as Mr. Williams, commit itself to the principle of making all its elections matters of party strife, or declaring ineligible to any of its offices (however qualified) persons whose earnest desire and aim it has, for many years, been to promote the sound principles of our Church, according to the teaching of her Liturgy. “ I have the honour to be, Your humble servant,
“ E. B. PUSEY."
taken. You have received from one of the Fellows a similar assurance concerning himself; and I find that many others of our body were equally destitute of information upon this point.
“ With respect to the non-residence of Mr. Garbett, you will yourself adınit that his case is decidedly distinguished from that of the gentleman to whom you allude. It is, however, precisely similar to that of the present Professor, whose example we have in support of our conclusion, that the duties of the office may be ably discharged notwithstanding.
“ After all, it may unfortunately be true, that what was begun in generous rivalry may be assumning, more or less, the character of religious division. But we deny that we are responsible for this, either generally, or now in particular. We have not sought such an issue ; we have encouraged no step towards it. We only advocate the just pretensions of a gentleman well qualified for the office which he is seeking; who has ably served his college as a Tutor; the University as Public Examiner ; whó has been selected to fill on the next occasion the important office of Bampton Lecturer; and of whom we assert, as you of his competitor, “that it is his earnest desire and aim to promote the sound principles of our Church according to the teaching of her Liturgy.'
dear Dr. Pusey, truly yours,
“ A. T. GILBERT. “Rev. Dr. Pusey, Canon of Christ Church,
" Regius Professor of Hebrew. “ Considering that you have printed and circulated your letter, you will not be surprised at my giving equal publicity to the above."
“ Believe me,
“ Brasenose College, Nov. 19, 1841, “ Dear Dr. Pusey, -Unfeignedly do I regret that any thing should have occurred to place us in opposition to each other; but I am compelled to notice some statements in your printed circular, dated 17th inst., of which I did not see a copy until late last night.
“ I must beg leave to deny altogether that the object of this college in bringing forward Mr. Garbett was to prevent the election of Mr. Williams.
“Mr. Garbett's talents are admitted by all who know him. His acquirements in every department of literature are extensive. He is intimately acquainted with the poetry, of most countries and ages. He has a singular power of retaining and combining all that he has ever read, and of developing his own systematised views to the apprehension of others.
* What I have already said almost implies, but I will distinctly add, that his feeling for the beauties of poetry is true, and his criticism manly, just and compreprehensive.
"With this conviction of his fitness for the office, are needed no other inducement to bring him forward for the Professorship of Poetry
“How far Mr. Williams - had been generally thought by the resident members of the University to be marked out by his poetic talents to fill that chair,' it is not for me to say. I can only state, that I never heard Mr. Williams mentioned for that post until after our own resolution had been
“ St. Giles' House, Dec. 11, 1841. “Sir,In the letter which I have had the honour of receiving from you 'to solicit my vote and interest in Mr. Williams's behalf, you desire also, on the part of the committee, a reply to their communication.
" I hasten to furnish that reply.
" The Rev. Isaac Williams has presented himself for the vacant chair of the Professor of Poetry. I have no doubt whatever that he possesses all those amiable qualities and high attainments which his supporters put forward as the ground of his election. Nor should I hesitate, as I replied to my friend Dr. Pusey, to render him any private service that might lie within my power ; but the rev. gentleman claims a public post, and seeks to be invested with public authority; and it has become, therefore, the duty of every one who has a voice in the decision, to consider
