A careful examination of these Tabular Statements, and a comparison of the opinions formed by the Faculty individually, and submitted to the President in writing before Tables were prepared, are believed to indicate with sufficient precision the most prominent features of the Report with respect both to Scholarship and Deportment.

I. Scholarship
The First distinction was assigned to
The Second to
The Third to
The young gentlemen, entitled to the first distinction, were directed to allot the delivery of the Salutatory and Valedictory Orations to two of their number, and honorary Orations were assigned to each of the thirteen remaining individuals.

II Deportment
This Class is remarkable as having exhibited more conspicuous instances of accurate scholarship, combined with correct deportment and exact punctuality in the discharge of collegiate duties, than any preceding one with which our records afford the requisite data for comparison. We regret that our Tables exhibit cases of an opposite character, no less striking in their details.
Mr. J. S. Johnston has been perfectly punctual in the discharge of his collegiate duties during the entire term of four years, including more than 5000 attendances upon scholastic and religious exercises; and has in no instance incurred any species of college censure. Mr. Horner was confined to his bed about a fortnight at the close of the Junior year, and with this exception, never failed in the discharge of his duties. Mr. W. H. Hinton, though in delicate health, was absent but six times from Prayers and seven times from Recitation, during the same period, all excused by sickness, and neither he nor Mr. Horner has in any instance fallen under college censure.
Mr. J. M. Graham was but once absent (from Recitation) during the three first years, and would not have been absent during the Senior year, if he had refrained from visiting Raleigh on the 12th April. The next most prominent instances of punctuality were afforded by Messrs Rounsaville , Grier, Whitaker , Sanders, Smith, and Bryan . Mr. Wimbish was not absent in the Senior year, except during a visit of 3 days to Raleigh about the 12th April.
In addition to the names of Messrs Johnston, Horner , and Hinton mentioned above, Messrs Ballanfant , Dalton, Fuller, Lewis, Scott , Smith, Stanfield, Wetmore and Whitaker have not been recorded on the Conduct Roll, during their connection with the Institution, and Messrs J. M. Graham, R. Jones and Wimbish avoided all censure during the Senior year.

The Examination was resumed Monday the 3rd and closed Tuesday the 4th of June. The whole of the first week was devoted to the three younger classes. All the classes were examined on the Holy Scriptures on Monday the 3rd of June by the Faculty of the University, in the presence of the Hon. Wm. H. Battle . The forenoon of Tuesday was occupied in the examination of the Senior Class by the President in the department of Constitutional and National Law, in the presence of the Hon. Wm. Battle , a member of the Board of Trustees. The result of each examination is stated under the appropriate heads of the Report.
The forty one individuals, whose names are recorded on the 1st and 2nd pages of the Report, as constituting the Senior Class, are respectfully recommended as worthy of the degree of Bachelor of Arts.
