delivered within our walls, are calculated to sustain the reputation of the School, and the credit of the Professors.

If the patronage bestowed be considered as bearing a relation to the merits of our exertions, we begin to perceive grounds of solid satisfaction. Though our zeal and activity were never blunted by the alarming apprehension of pecuniary embarrassment, with which we were once assailed, it still operated in many respects as a repulsive power to the well wishers of the establishment, and gave an apparent sanction to the weak inventions of our enemies. From these we are now relieved, partly by the accession of new members, of whom a list is annexed, and partly by a donation from John Fuller, Esq., of Rose Hill, who has contributed the interest of the sum of ONE THOUSAND POUNDS to the general purposes of the INSTITUTION; and upon conditions couched in terms of unbounded liberality, has proffered the capital either towards the immediate extinction of our very small outstanding debt, or for the foundation of a sinking fund.

It is hoped that such an example of well directed bounty may prove generally useful to the interests of science, and that funds will not be wanting, wherever it shall be shewn that they are not frittered away in visionary schemes, but legitimately applied to the diffusion of knowledge; that they are not suffered to slide into the pocket of the sinecurist, but economically employed for the public good.
