Mr Marshall is unfortunately going to leave this school, where he has been for nearly 30 years, having been nominated by the Chapter of Christ Church to the living of Pyrton.

A testimonial was presented to him in the library by the members of the Sixth & Shell, consisting of a silver vase, gilt & engraved, & supported on an ebony pedestal, with a plain inscription. He made an appropriate address, and evidently was much touched.
