Matriculation of the Prince of Wales. --The Prince of Wales made quite a brilliant entry into Cambridge on the 19th ultimo, on his way to his college. The bells of the town were rung, and flags and banners displayed, while the municipal authorities, in the servile phrascology in use abroad, "humbly craved permission to offer to his Royal Highness" their congratulations. The Prince was then duly matriculated a member of the University, swearing to maintain the supremacy of the Sovereign, her heirs and successors, the Church of England, as by law established, and the privileges and immunities of the University. After this, there was a regular scramble among the ladies present for the pen with which the Prince signed the matriculation book. The Prince, we are told, put on his academical robes, went through the buildings with the Master of the College, Rev. Dr. Whewell, and ended the day in the Tennis Court with Gen. Bruce.
