OXFORD.—The statutes made by the new Commissioners for the different colleges are appearing in their final shape. The statutes of six colleges are already printed and in the hands of Members of Convocation. They resemble each other closely in several respects. Ordinary Fellows are to be elected by examination, all the branches of learning recognised in the final schools of the University being taken from time to time as the subject of examination. These Fellowships are tenable for seven years. Tutorial Fellows are elected without examination, but the colleges may require two years' college work from an ordinary Fellow, having given notice of such requirement before the examination. The colleges may elect persons distinguished in literary or scientific work to Fellowships tenable for a term of years, during which the Fellows shall devote themselves to a. definite research specified in the resolution appointing them.
