Vice-Provost are to be chosen by the fellows out of their own body. Vacancies in the Senate are to be filled up by the remaining fellows, until there are one hundred graduates entitled as Masters of Arts, &c., to vote, when the vacancies as they occur will be filled up by the graduates themselves, duly convened in convocation.
3. In addition to the entire management of the educational and financial affairs of the University, the Senate has power to make by-laws as to discipline, degrees, honours, &c., which when duly approved of by the Governor and Executive Council, have the force of law. It has also authority to confer the degrees of Bachelor and Master of Arts, and Bachelor and Doctor of Laws and Medicine.
4. An endowment of £5000 per annum is provided by the Act of Council; out of this fund provision has been made for Eighteen Scholarships of the annual value of £50 each, to be held for periods not exceeding three years. An additional scholarship of equal value has been founded by the liberality of a public spirited citizen, Thomas Barker, Esq., and is to be granted as the reward of peculiar proficiency in Mathematical and Physical science.
5. Although the University has no Theological Professorship, such an appointment being obviously inexpedient in a community possessing no dominant church, and in which no less than four leading Christian Churches are partially endowed by the state; yet the establishment of suffragan colleges by the several communions will in due time supply this deficiency, without interfering with the unsectarian character of the University.
