OXFORD.—No further regulations have been issued by the University Commissioners for the Professoriate. Opinion is much divided in the University itself as to the operation of the new rules. There have been several memorials to the Commissioners got up, some praying that no alterations be made, others approving the new Councils of the Faculties. There seems to be a general feeling against insisting on the professors examining their classes every term, and against making attendance at their lectures compulsory. The Councils of Faculties are regarded by many with favour as a means of bringing the tutors and lecturers of the various colleges who are engaged in teaching the same branch of learning into closer relationship, and enabling them better to divide the work among them.
