Rev. William H. Ryder, pastor of the Congregational church of this city, has been elected by the board of trustees, to the professorship of New Testament Exegesis in Andover Theological Seminary. This professorship was formerly filled by the late Professor Moses Stuart, and more recently by Profetsor J. Henry Thayer, now of Harvard. Dr. Ryder is a gradúate of Andover, and before coming here was a professor of Greek in Oberlin college. His congregation here will be glad to learn that their pastor is honored, but some member8 express themselves as desirous of disappointing Andover in this thing.
