Whereas it is found that the care and management of the two academies in the town of Asheboro', county of Randolph, viz., the male and female academies, under two different and distinct boards of trustees, is inconvenient, and attended with difficulty; therefore,

Sec 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That from and after the passing of this Act, the care and management of these two academies shall be under one and the same board of trustees, to consist of twelve in number, in whom shall be vested all the powers and privileges granted to the trustees of the female and male academies by the original Act of incorporation, and who shall take the place of such trustees as were named in the original Act, or may have since been chosen to fill vacancies, and that Jonathan Worth, Alfred H. Marsh, A. J. Hale, J. M. A. Drake, Reuben H. Brown, J. M. Worth, Francis Cooper, John A. Craven, B. F. Hoover, Wm. B. Lane, Hugh M. Cain and Hardy Brown, constitute the board, any five of whom shall be quorum for transacting business, with power to fill any vacancies that may happen by death, resignation or removal from the county.

Sec. 2. Be it further enacted, That these trustees shall receive all the property belonging to the two academics, and that the former trustees convey and deliver over all the said property to this new board, and that they shall have all the rights and privileges that were granted to the former trustees, and be liable in manner and form as there described.

Sec. 3. Be it further enacted, That the former Acts referred to be and are hereby repealed, except so far as the conditions are transferred to the new board as herein referred to.

Sec. 4. Be it further enacted, Reuben H. Brown is authorized to call and preside at the first meeting, until the proper officers are chosen.

Sec. 5. Be it further enacted, That this Act shall continue in force for the space of thirty years, and no longer.

Ratified the 20th day of January, 1855.
