Broad Sanctuary, opposite Westminster Abbey. - This Hospital was instituted in the year 1719, and is the oldest hospital in England supported by voluntary contributions. The high prices of provisions and coals have materially increased the current expenditure, and a sum of not less than 800l. is required to meet the payment of the tradesmen's bills to Christmas last. 16.000 persons are relieved annually, and the doors of the Hospital are open night and day for the reception of cases of accident and urgent disease.

ANOMYMOUS PHOTOGRAPHIC CORRESPONDENT. We have given in former Numbers admirable formulæ for printing positives. MR. POLLOCK's mode on alb umenised paper produces beautiful results, as dues also the more simple one recommended by Dr. DIAMOND. In one of our carliest Photographic communications an iodized form was given which may be used by feeble or artificial light, and which is highly useful.

A. R. (Bombay). Iodide of silver should not be dried for photographic purposes after it is formed; therefore you must'rest contented to approach the nearest you can to the requisite quantity by careful manipulation. A note appended to our photographic article in this Vumber sufficiently indicates how ofien we must depend upon our own judgment, and how difficult it is to reduce Photography to exact laws when the substances used are so constantly varying.

T. M. The sample sent of Whatman's writing paper iodizes most beautifully. It has always been the case that paper made for ordinary purposes is often much better than that made for Photography alone.
