Executive Committee met.

Present

Present

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.
