He was appointed Professor of Classics and English at the new University College, Auckland, New Zealand, in 1883; and in June 1885 was elected as professor of classical philology at the University of Melbourne. In 1889 he published an important critical edition of the "Supplices" of Æschylus, in recognition of the merits of which work the degree of Doctor in Letters was conferred upon him by the University of Cambridge. He is a contributor to various literary and philological publications, and has collected into a volume entitled "Things Worth Thinking About" a series of lectures on literature and culture previously delivered in Melbourne. A critical edition of "Thucydides, Book VIII.," was printed in 1892, the same year he represented Melbourne University at the Dublin University celebration.
