A meeting of the University Council was held yesterday afternoon, and attended by tho Chancellor (the Rjv. Dr Stuart), Dr B s, Messrs R. L, Stanford, J. M'Lean, Ui.a E. B. Cargill. THE UNIVERSITY COUNCIL HILL. The Chancellor stated that he had received from Mr Fulton, M.H.R., a copy of Dr Pilchett’sUniversity Council Bil'. Mr Fulton was of opinion that the Bill might come up again this session, and requested the advice of the Council upon the matter. Hu (the Chancellor) had also that morning received a letter from Mr Allen, M.H.R., who said that there was no chance of tho Bill coming up again. Mr Stanford thought the only thing that was necessary before the Council gave their consent to the Bill was that clause 13, which withdrew from the Council tho right of applying for a charter, should be deleted. He agreed that it was objectionable that there should be a senate, but it was in the essence of tnc machinery of the Bill that there should bo a senate for the purpose of electing one-third of the members of the Council. It was agreed—“ That clause 13 must be deleted, and the Council adhere to their expressed opinion that a senate is undesirable,” A PRESENTATION. A letter was received from the Registrar of the New Zealand University stating that the late examiner upon history and political economy had presented a copy of his work ‘ English History and Commerce ’ to the library of the Otago University. It was resolved that the Chancellor should convey tho thanks of the Council to the donor. POLITICAL ECONOMY CLASS, The Chancellor said that the provision for teaching political economy expired this session, and it was necessary that they should appoint a committee to consider what provision should be made for giving instruction in that science next session. A committee was accordingly appointed, consisting of the Chancellor, Vice-Chan-cellor, and Mr Cargill. CONSTITUTIONAL HISTORY CLASS. The Chancellor said it would also be necessary to appoint a committee to see what was to be done in the matter of constitutional history. The Law Society had taken a little interest in this matter, but the business had not been carried out to its proper issue, and he would suggest that a small committee should be appointed to confer with tho Law Society.

Mr Stanford suggested that the instruction in political economy and constitutional history should be given by one man. He thought tho same committee as had already been appointed might act in this matter. Mr Cargill suggested that for this purpose Mr Stanford’s name should be added to the other committee. Tho suggestion made by Mr Cargill was adopted. This concluded the business.
