The principles of this Society are those of purely Mutual Assurance. There are no Proprietors to share in the Profits. The Rates of Premium are moderate; and hitherto the claims upon Life Assurance have been considerably fewer than were estimated.

Assurances may be made in this Society upon Life; for Provision in Sickness; for Annuities during the early years of Education and in Old Age; iz Endowments; for Reversionary Annuities to Orphans, &c. &c.

In pursuance of notice given by the Standing Committee at the last General Meeting, the Board granted, on the application of the Lord Bishop of Cape Town, Five Hundred Pounds towards the Kafir Institution, Cape Town, for the sons and daughters of chiefs; the sum of 5001. having been granted for this object in July, 1858.

The Standing Committee proposed, according to notice, that Five Hundred Pounds be placed at the discretion of the Lord Bishop of Colombo, for the purposes of native Female Education, in Schools in connexion with the Church of England, in his

diocese; with special reference to education in the

vernacular languages.

A letter was read from the Lord Bishop of Colombo, dated Colombo, Ceylon, Nov. 10th, 1859, giving an and stating, that out of nearly 5000 under educa account of the state of Female Education in Ceylon, tion only 600 were females, half of these being in

The Bishop of Carlisle purposes to hold an Or

It was agreed that this application be referred to the Lord Bishop of Colombo, with the recommenda tion of the Board that such a portion of the 5001, as his Lordship may see fit be assigned to the Galle school.

A letter was read from the Rev. J. A. Sellar, Incumbent of St. Mary's, Scottish Episcopal Church, Montrose, requesting a grant of books towards a library in connexion with his congregation, there being a large proportion of poor and working people.

A recommendation of this object by the Diocesan, the Bishop of Brechin, was read to the Meeting.

The Board, on the recommendation of the Standing Committee, agreed to grant 51. towards this library.

The Rev. Brymer Belcher, pursuant to notice given at the last General Meeting, proposed the following resolution for the adoption of the Meeting.

"That a grant of Books having been made at the November Meeting to St. Peter's English Episcopal Chapel at Montrose, which is not in connexion with the Scotch Episcopal Church, the Society deems it expedient for the future not to make any grant to the English Episcopal churches or chapels in Scotland."

lain, in which he shows the necessity there is for the
establishment of a good grammar-school in this city,
and also of a suitable school for the female children
of our countrymen and other Christian persons in
the middle classes of society. I am directed to
offer the cordial thanks of the Committee to the
venerable Society for its munificent donation, and
to assure you of our fervent desire to promote
Christian knowledge in the diocese.

"It will, I think, interest the Society to know that the friends of the late Bishop Carr met a few days ago to do honour to his memory. Bishop Carr was always a very warm supporter of the Society in this country. I find that he was present at the primary meeting, held on the 8th of June, 1816, under the presidency of the first Bishop of Calcutta, Dr. Middleton, for the purpose of forming a District Committee here, in connexion with the Society."

The Lord Bishop of Cape Town, in a letter dated Bishop's Court, December 14, 1859, enclosed applications for help from different parts of his diocese; the applicants being the Rev. G. H. R. Fisk, at whose request the sum of 251. towards a schoolchapel at D'Urban was voted in January, 1858; the Rev. H. M. M. Wilshere, who is desirous of erecting schools at Caledon; the Rev. H. Hirsch, of Ezel Jah and Schoonberg, who requested help towards building a school-chapel.

The Board agreed to place 1007. at the discretion of the Bishop towards these objects.

A letter was read from the Lord Bishop of Quebec, recommending applications from two clergymen in his diocese. His Lordship stated that help to the clergy in their work in his diocese is greatly needed. The sum of 1007. was voted, and placed at the Bishop's discretion for the Society's objects.

The Lord Bishop of Montreal, in a letter dated See House, Jan. 7th, 1860, informed the Society that the new Cathedral of Montreal had been opened, and that three services every Sunday had been regularly held there since the first Sunday in Advent. At the Holy Communion on Christmas Day there were 348 communicants. For the evening service the building is thrown open for all, the appropriation of seats to certain holders being limited to the morning and afternoon. In order to supply some of those who attend in the evening with a morning service, a free service has been held in a small chapel at the old "Protestant burying-ground," now closed for burials, within the city. This building being only temporarily lent, and always crowded, it has been determined to build an entirely free church, to hold about 300, the cost of which will be between 8007. and 9007. The church will be served by the clergy of the cathedral. The Bishop requests the Society to lend the friends of this measure a helping hand.

It was agreed that 501. be granted towards a church intended for 300 worshippers; but, should the building be constructed for 500, that the grant be augmented to 100%.

The Lord Bishop of Barbados informed the Society that he had received 501. to be expended at his discretion in Bibles, Prayer Books, and religious and other books for distribution or sale at reduced prices among the peasantry of Barbados, and that he had purchased books from the Society's Catalogues with this sum.

"This most liberal grant," said the Bishop, "was the act of an Association, less known perhaps than, for the public good, it is desirable that it should be -an Association formed in the year 1857 by gentlemen having property in Barbados, but resident in England, for the religious and social improvement of our labouring population in that island. The Association have placed considerable sums at my disposal, more especially for the maintenance of Scripture readers acting under the clergy, and the establishment of infant schools, selecting for themselves departments of usefulness which had attracted less local attention and support, such as schools and chapels. They have, however, given liberal grants to many special objects brought under their consideration. It is a pity, I think, that the existence of such an Association is not more generally known." The Board agreed to make a gratuitous grant of the Society's Books and Tracts to the value of 201. A letter was received from the Rev. H. R. Nevill, Great Yarmouth. He said,—

"I have received your letter respecting a grant of books to be made by the Society in aid of the mission to the beachmen and fishermen, and the mission to the wherrymen. I beg to offer my very sincere thanks, and to say that we propose imme. diately to open a reading-room for the wherry men, and shall be grateful for any number of books that can be given by the Society for the use of the men.

"For the beachmen I would rather, if I might, make a later application. Schools are now in course of erection, and though they have for the present been delayed by the Rev. F. W. Johnson's death, they will, I doubt not, be completed before the summer; and I shall gladly, if I may, then apply for a grant. I cannot tell you how great a loss we have sustained. The work has been done most zealously among the beachmen and fishermen ; and it is no easy thing to find a successor to Mr. Johnson."

It was agreed to grant Books to the value of 107. for the use of the wherrymen.

Several grants of Books were made.

GOSPEL IN FOREIGN PARTS.

79, Pall Mall, February 10, 1860. THE statement of the Society's income in the year 1859 is necessarily reserved for the Annual Meeting on Feb. 17th. It may be well to remind members that the meeting on that day takes place, as required by the Charter, shortly before noon.

The Society has received an interesting report, dated June, 1859, of the Native Training Institution at Sawyerpuram, Tinnevelly, Southern India.

Grants of money were made in aid of the erection of churches at Dunham, in the parish of Thornton. on-the-Moors; and Over, near Northwick, Che shire; Exeter, St. Mary Magdalene; Mithian, near Truro; and in a district of the parish of All Saints, Maidstone; and towards enlarging or otherwise increasing the accommodation in the churches at Stoke, near Coventry; Bicknor, near Maidstone; Holy Trinity, Ely; Hawkley, near Petersfield, Hants; and Kirmington, near Ulceby, Lincoln. The grant formerly made towards rebuilding the church at Spetisbury was increased, under the very urgent circumstances represented. The grant to Whitchurch, near Monmouth, which had been cancelled, was renewed.

When it is considered that the grants voted since the 31st March last amount to no less than 17,933!., and that the real income of the Society amounts to little more than half that sum, it must be seen how fearfully urgent is now the need of increased efforts in its behalf.

Owing to some serious disturbances which had occurred in the mission of Nazareth, the rev. missionary, with the sanction of the Tinnevelly Local Committee, withdrew eleven of the boys of that district, who were the very flower of the school, from the Institution. We filled up their places with the best substitutes we could find, but scarcely any of the new boys were qualified for places in the higher classes, but were obliged to be drafted into the lower classes. In spite of this serious interference with our plans, the Institution has made rapid progress; and, I trust, each succeeding report will prove that Sawyerpuram is realizing the expectations of its supporters and friends.
