It is stated by the Morning Pose that the vacant

Bishopric of Lichfield has been filled up by the translation of the Hon. and Right Rev. Horatio Powys, D.D., Bishop of &dor and Man, from the retired Isle of Man (in which he has been Bishop for thirteen years), -with its little population of 52,000, and its comparatively. small episcopal rerenueof 2,0001., to the busy diocese of Lichfield, with its population of upwards of 1,000,000, and its revenue of 4,500/. Dr. Powys is a Cambridge man (of St. John's College), as it was predicted that the new Bishop would be. He is appar- ently a quiet person, who has published nothing but a sermon or two, and quite innocent of theological distinction. The retired diocese which he is to vacate is a prize that still remains to be given away. The translated Bishop is the third son of the second,' Baron Lilford, and the uncle, therefore, of the present Baron.
