The university of Oregon, by an act of the State legislature, wa founded and located at Eugene in 1872, and it was opened for th reception of students and giving instruction in 1876.
The management of its affairs is placed in a board or regents, a pointed for a term of twelve years, by the Governor of the Stai and confirmed by the State senate. The board of regents confer such degrees and grants such diplomas as other universities ar wont to confer and grant.
The permanent endowment of the university consists of eight thousand dollars, realized from the sale of the land granted to th State by the general government for the purpose of establishing university, and a fund of fifty thousand dollars generously donate the university by Mr. Henry Villard, and an annual income fror the State of one-seventh of a mill on all taxable property.
LOCATION. The university is located at Eugene, Lane county, Oregon, on hundred and twenty miles south of Portland, on the Oregon & Ca ifornia Railroad. Eugene is the county seat of Lane county, ha four thousand inhabitants, and is situated amidst scenery of muc natural beauty. The university campus lies southeast of Eugent about one mile from the city postoffice, and contains some eightee acres of land.
BUILDINGS. The universiiy bias on its campus three brick buildings. On was erected in part by the citizens of Lane county and finished by the State. It is one hundred and fifty feet long, fifty-four feet wich and three stories high, besides the basement. The second building named by the regents " Villard llall," is made of brick, and has concrete finish on the outside. It is one hundred and fifteen fet in length, sixty nine feet wide, and two stories high above the base ment. The third brick building was erected by the regents in 185 at a cost of about four thousand five hundred dollars, for a gym nasium. It contains the most approved apparatus for exercise.
A brick observatory, on an eminence convenient to the university has been erected by the regents at a cost of about four thousand dollars.
LIBRARY. The university library occupies a room in Villard hall, and con tains at present about three thousand volumes. A part of the book
. was bought at a cost of one thousand dollars by Mr. Henry Villard
Another part has since been bought at a cost of seven hundred dollars, out of the income from the Villard endowment fund. The annual sum coming from the Villard fund for the purchase of books. for the library is four hundred dollars. This money is now spent in buying books of reference for the use of the university.
Through the influence of Hon. J. N. Dolph, Oregon's United States Senator, the library has been made the depository of all documents published by the general government at Washington. In the library room may also be found a large number of magazines, reviews and other periodicals published in England and America. There is no charge for the use of all these books and periodicals.
Much might be done towards preparing this university for the place it ought and must fill in the future growth of the intellectual power of our State, if some man or men would, out of their abundance, give the university a library endowment fund.
The university has about two thousand dollars' worth of mathematical instruments. Students in surveying and engineering, by means of the solar compass and engineer's transit, can become acquainted with practical field work in their department, and by means of the sextant and other instruments they can learn the methods of finding the latitude and longitude of any place.
Students in astronomy will have access for observatory practice to the sideral clock, the forty-two-inch astronomical transit and the sextant, and with these instruments will be able to find the latitude and longitude, as well as the exact solar time, of the university building by the methods used by astronomers and navigators.
The apparatus belonging to the department of physics and chemistry has cost the university more than three thousand dollars, and though such a collection of instruments can never be complete, it affords greater facilities for class illustrations than can be found elsewhere in the "Great Northwest."
The departments of geology, mineralogy and natural history are provided with large and valuable collections to illustrate their teachings. Professor Condon's cabinet is already widely known on on this coast, and and is justly noted for its wonderful record of Oregon's former history.
To this collection, large additions of eastern and foreign minerals are yearly made, and the whole is freely used in illustrating truth to the classes taught in these departments.
People in all parts of the State are respectfully requested to aid
