SESSION 1850-1851.

THE SESSION WILL COMMENCE ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2nd,

THE INTRODUCTORY ADDRESS WILL BE DELIVERED
AT TWO O'CLOCK, P.M., IN THE THEATRE OF ARTS,

BY THE RIGHT HONORABLE THE PRINCIPAL, F.R.S.

STATEMENT, The great and increasing population of the Town of Birmingham and the central district of which it is the Metropolis, the rapid development of its resources, the augmentation of its wealth, and its influence in a national point of view, have long pointed out the expediency of establishing in that part of the kingdom an Institution which should secure to its inhabitants, and to others resorting to it in the present increased facility of communication, the advantages of a sound, yet not expensive, Collegiate Education. It was considered desirable that such an Institution, while based in its main features and principles on the system pursued at Oxford and Cambridge, should yet be adapted in its details to the circumstances of the present age, the requirements of its particular locality, and to the modern advance and enlargement of every branch of science and learning. The obtaining of Degrees and Honours in the several departments of study was regarded as essential to such an Institution, both as an incentive to students, and a guarantee to the public of professional attainment. A system of collegiate discipline was contemplated as a main feature in the undertaking; and it was determined that the whole should rest as a fundamental principle on Sound Religious Education.

The Council of Queen's College at Birmingham, have now the satisfaction of stating to the public that this undertaking has been accomplished, and that these views hare been realized. Through the indefatigable exertions of Mr. Sands Cox, supported by the munificent endowments and gifts of Dr. Warneford, aided by Mr. Chancellor Law, and under the sanction and authority of two Royal Charters, they are enabled to offer to the community on a moderate scale of expenditure, the advantages of a University Education, based upon sound religious principle, accompanied by the control of a carefully arranged discipline, and carried forward so as to embrace the advantages of all modern discoveries, and the various improvements in Literature, Science, and Arts.

RELIGIOUS CHARACTER OF THE COLLEGE. The following extracts from the Supplemental Charter granted in the tenth year of Her Majesty's reign, by which act of Royal Favor the position of the College was completed as an incorporation embracing all the branches of literature, science, and art, will sufficiently attest the Religious character of the College.

" In the said College the doctrines and duties of Christianity are taught as the same are inculcated in the United Church of England and Ireland." The consideration by which Her Majesty is moved to grant the powers conferred on the Principal and Council is thus expressed: “We being desirous of maintaining indissolubly the connection between sound religion and useful learning, and of aiding the establishment, extension, and permanence of institutions in which are taught the doctrines and duties of Christianity as the same are inculeated by the United Church of England and Ireland.” And it is also provided that “from and after the decease of the present Visitor, the Lord Bishop of the Diocese for the time being shall be Visitor of the said College; that the Principal shall be a nobleman, or one of the Honorary Governors, and a member of the Church of England; the Vice-Principal, a Dignitary of the Church of England, residing at or near Birmingham : and that the Treasurer, the Dean of the Faculty, and all the Classical and Mathematical Tutors of the said College shall be members of the Church of England and Ireland as by Law established; and that the Classical and Mathematical Tutors shall be graduates of the Universities of Oxford or

Cambridge."

THE DEPARTMENTS.
The College is divided into the following departments :-

1.- THE MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.
II.-THE LAW DEPARTMENT.
111.--THE ENGINEERING DEPARTUEST.
IV.—THE JUNIOR DEPARTMENT.

V.--THE ARTS DEPARTMENT.

VI.—THE THOLOGICAL DEPARTMENT. All these departments are under the general control and superintendence of the Warden of the College, occupying in this respect a position similar to that of the Rev. the Principal in the sister Institution of King'- College, in London.

The appointment as Warden of a Dignitary of the Church of high standing and great educational experience, and the assigning to him the important and responsible functions indicated in the following extract from their bye-laws, the Council regard as an highly auspicious step in the progress of the College. --

THE WARDEN. That the Warden be a Clergyman of the Church of England in Priests Orders, and Graduate of Oxford or Cambridge; that he be appointed by the Council, subject to the confirmation of the Governors at their Annual General Meeting: that he do take his meals in Hall at his pleasure, free from charge; that in the absence of the Principal and Vice-Principal he do take the Chair at all Meetings of the Council and Committees and do perform in their absence all their other duties; that he be responsible for the instruction of the Students in all the Departments of the College in Christian Ethics, Church History, and the Doctrines of the Church of England; that all the Students on coming up for admission do call upon him first, and bo examined by him in reference respectively to the Departments which they propose to enter; that they do produce to him a testimonial of previous good character, and be by him admitted into the College.
