The Prest laid before the Committee a political essay of Prof. B. S. Hedrick's published in the N. Carolina Standard of the 4th instant together with sundry letters & papers relating thereto, whereupon

Resolved that the Executive Committee have seen with great regret the publication of Prof. Hedrick in the Standard of the 4th inst.; because it violates the established usage of the University which forbids any Professor to become an Agitator in the exciting politics of the day; & is well calculated to injure the prosperity & usefulness of the Institution.

Resolved that the prompt action of a majority of the Faculty of the University on the 6th in. meets with the cordial approbation of this Committee.

Resolved that in the Opinion of this Committee Mr Hedrick has greatly, if not entirely destroyed his power to be of further benefit to the University in the office which he now fills.

The President also laid before the Committee a supplemental memorial & statement of Mr H. Herrisse the Instructor in French, in addition to that of the last meeting, setting forth a want of discipline & maladministration of the affairs & government of the College by the Faculty; & he submitted also a copy of the Journal of the Faculty in pursuance of a Resolution of the last meeting & other papers relating to this subject, when it was ordered that the whole matter be laid upon the Table.

Ordered that the Secretary furnish the President with a copy of the foregoing minutes to be laid before the Faculty—

Committee adjourned.
