complaints were afterwards made by his workmen and some of his customers that the bread made from this flour was bad, and of inferior quality. It waa the first complaint of the kind that Mr. Oliver had ever had in his life, and as an honest tradesman ho refused to re-the remainder of the tlour. Then Mr. Allsopp originally claimed £57 4s., but this amount was brought down to fOyMe^but Mr. Leigh said the former sum would have/tiade the action outsido the jurisdiction of the court—Dependant was examined at some length, and his Honour deserving I that complainta were sometimes made of what the bikers put into the bread—of there being soda- put iaU it (laughter)—defendant said he had never hoard of inch a thing before.—Mr, Shutte: At any rate ihcre>as no "Soda in your bread?-Defend »nt: Certainly not- In answer to Mr. Shutte, defend aut said Mr. Allsopp called upou him on a Friday, and haying looked at the flour and admitted it- was indifferent, said he would send for what remained of it, and return some better, but he did not do so.—A letter wa. p*t u: from Jlr.

In which he stated that ho had procured tne reliable testimony of «omel(ouaey baker, a, to &h* good quality of the aoor.-Defendant, in anawer to Mr. Ldgh, wld he used off tho flour gradually.—Mrs. Oliver, William Adams, baker in Mr. Oliver's service, who said the bread made from this flour had a " rotten, strong smell (though Mr. Leigh suggested that the evidence was rotten instead of the flour), and Harriet Hooper, ------.—&----called for the defendant the latter
The Chairman' said it had been a subject of consideration by the committee for some time past that some of the arrangements of the institution were not what they ought to be, particularly in regard to the foul laundry, whore the various bandages, &c., were first washed, and the dead-house, which was so close to the main building as at times to be very offensive ; and also at the annual cleaning out of the institution, there was no place to which they could conveniently shift the patients, the consequence being that at this particular period they were obliged to gradually drop them off by diminishing the recommendation*" for admission. Even then it removal«*

Several of her customer, asked her if aho. had changed her baker, as she had hitherto and since always received good bread from Mr. Oliver.—His Honour summed up the case to tho jury, stating that the main question was as to the quality of the flour, and whether or not it was according to contract Then supjiosing a verdict should I hi returned for the plaintiff, considering the fall in the market which afterward, took place, he took it that the extent of the damages would be £21 Ga. fid.—The jury consulted for a few minutes, and then earn* to the conclusion that the flour was good according to contraot, and gave a verdict for £21 10s.—Mr.

another as the cleaning went on. As the governor, had not applied to the public for many years for assistance, and had kept the expenditure of the institution well within bounds, they considered that they could fairly expect the public to sustain them in carrying out the alterations which were so much required to remedy these inconveniences (bear hear). The subject was accordingly referred to a sub committee, who had gone into the details, and made a report thereon.
The report of the committee of management, which was read by Dr. Lake, stated that they had received and examined plans by Mr. Critchlow, for the erection of a new ward of the same size as the Crabbe ward, with accommodation for isolated cases, with new laundries, new dead-house, and new permanent buildings for infections caaes. The cost of execution, roughly estimated, taking the ward at ono storey, would, be £3,000, and if a second storey be added, giving an upper ward, the cost would be £3,000. The cost of removing the present and building a new dead house and laundry vftrald be—for new dead-house, £150 ; laundry, £475 : and new Infectious eottsge, £1,000 ; making the total oost for one storey £4,825. or for the two stories £0,(125. In addition to this expense it would be necessary to pull down the Fame Inn, now yielding a rent of £30 per annum. The large sum required to carry out this pi in, and the conviction that the requirements of the neighbourhood did not call for such an extensive augmentation of the establishment, which would al*i inevitably add to the current annual expenditure, precluded the sub committee from recommending it But they were fully aware that there were at present some iiiperfections existing that required immediate attention', and which could be remedied at a comparatively ■mail expenditure. -These were—(1) To remove the present foul laundry from under the chapel, (2) to remove tho dead-house from close under the Bullar ward ; (3) to re-arrange the apace gained for the separate w.c. accommodation of male and female outpatients ; and (4) to coo vert the Fame Inn to the pur-l**e of receiving patients from the main building at the periodical cleaning of wards, costing £250 for building, and £150 for furniture. It would be necessary, in carrying out what waa here recommended, to remove the present infectious cottage Wad it was suggested to substitute for it a building on another site, similar to that erected by the South Stoneham Union, which met with approval of the late Dr. Parkes : but previous

The report of the 5>outlr^VesUni_District of this Order-for the six months ending the 31st of. March, to be submitted at the half yearly meeting at Newport, I.W., on Monday next states that owing no doubt to the had state of trade, the number of suspensions of members has been unusually large during the past quarter, but the Diatrict nevertheless continues to in: crease in numbers, iu wealth, and in influence, and tho present return shows 147 more members than at the termination of the year 1877. Tho extenaion of the district includes as one of its prominent and leading features the opening of a new Court at Cranborne, In Donet The financial condition of the Funeral Fund is one of which the District may well b* proud, a considerable addition to the capital during the current half-year arising from results which are somewhat remarkable. At the meeting of delegate, in April, 1876. the officers' report showed that the district comprised 12,085 members, and-that tho funeral payments for the half-year ending March had amounted to £1.312 10s. In April 1877, there . were 13,639 members, and for the like period the funeral payments were £1,207 10s. Now, though the Dbtrict comprises 14,447 members, the funeral claims for the past six months have amounted to £1.032 10s. With regard to the Investment of sur-plus funds, the committee state" We are pleased to report to you thst we are on the point of completing an arrangement for advancing the sum of £1,000 on the security of the rate, of the pariah of Alverstoke, the Local Board paying interest at the rate of 4 per cent per annum, and repaying the capital by instalments extending over fifteen yeara. It i, really Ismentable, however, that with so many opportunities offering for the investment of our capital on public securities at 4 per cent, and occasionally on household property at 4| or 5 per cent, we should have to call attention to the fact that at this moment the Savings' Banks are the repository of no jess than £25,877 Gs. Id. of the capital
half-year received additions to it, fund, by way of gra-tuities from the Courts. The question of a proposed alteration of the basis of the fund will be raised at the District meeting from Court 4,234, and though much " formation may thereby be elicited, the committee are opinion that the liabdity which hss of late pressed heavily upon their capital waa to some extent of exceptional nature, and they, propose therefore __ defer till a future meeting recommending any decided course of action. The summary of accounts givea the following figure,:—On the receipts sido—Funeral fund (capital), £11,778 3a. ; management fund, £149 9s. MM.; Widows and Orphans' Fund. £4S 18s. 2Jd.; distress fund, £92 3s. ; goods fund, £20-12a. 4\d.; cheque not presented, 13,.; total. £12.089 19a 5a. On the expenditure side appear the following : —Mortgages, house property, £4.802 10s. ; ditto. Corporation bonds, £4,000; ditto. Watts Memorial Hall, £1,080; in treawrer's hsnds, £19 16s. lid.; Hampshire Bank, £2,169 lis.; due for goods from Courts, £18 la Gd.; total, £12,060 IBs. 5d. The auditor, state that they regret to find the state of the Widow, and Orphans' Fund required urgent consideration, the present balance in hand being £40 leas than the preceding half-year.—At the end of the year 1877 the Order comprised 287 districts, 4,414 Courts, 521,416 benefit and 11,379 honorary members—the Increase on the year being 4 districts, 38 Courts, 11,897 benefit and 2s2 honorary members. The ajwregate Court funds are returned at £2,209,519, and tho district funds at £287.841. showing an increase of £148,299 Court and £3,^03 district funds. Ths admission of new members in Great Britain and Ireland during the year wa, 43,818, againat 46,944 in the previoua year, and the deaths of members are returned at 5.2S8. The aggregate sickneaa experienced In the year ia returned at 3,952,829 daya, or an average of 8"99 days per member, being a trifle higher than tho experience of the year 1876. The juvenile societies continue to progress, the number of members on December 31st, 1877, being 3S..170, with £23,367 of funds, an increase in the year of 3,027 members and £4,500 of funds. In the year there were 7.949 youths who joined these societies, and in the same period 2,224juvenile members were transferred to various Courts of the Order. The .next High Court meeting will be at Newcastle ou-Tyne, commencing on Monday. August 5th.

these Fellowship, shonld be tho simple reward of .lis-tingnished scholarahifCand they should be thrown open to the whole nation, and not given as a perquisite to the clergy of a certain church. Dy diwtal liahlhg the church the vast amount of property attached to it could be applied to purely national purposes. And it had been abpwn that the people were impoverished I? the (torch being so rich. We had now to educate the children of tho country by an enforced rate, but if the property now claimed by the church was set at liberty, it would he enough to educate all the children in tho land without laying a charge of an additions! penny upon the people. And more than thst. they cnuhl rstaldi,h higher schools. Then formerly one third of the tithe charges was employed in the relief of the poor, instead of going into the pockets of the parsons, and would it not be better to apply this one third now in the relief of the poorer classes, thereby relieving us from the heavy incubus of the poor-rate! (applause). Ho maintained that disestablishment and disendnwment would be better for the clergy themselves. We should have a clergy then of a better quality ; now we had some very good, snme middling, and some altogether indifferent. Then we should not have men often entering upon the ministry when they had no real inclination for it, and those who felt no desire for that kind of work would he enabled tn get out of IL Dlssstabliihmrnt, ton. would benefit the laity, snd make them understand what their duties were in a manner that they did not understand them now. He referred to what had been done by tho Presbyterians in Scotland who severed themselves from an established church, and spent in thirty threo years, over £11,000,000 on churches, chaj>els. school-houses, and In fact the little Free Church waa almost £2,000 ahead of the Established Church there. By dis- " establishment there would be a flow of liberality such as wss never known before ; the Episcopal Church ho behoved would grow in usefulness and prosper to a greater degree than now ; the system of - patronage would bo put an end to; and, finally, it would be of good to the whole community, dispossess men's minds of a great number of misconceptions, and deliver religous matters out of the hands of men who had no right preemptively to manage theui. He urged them all to asust in bringing about that which would be a benefit to the churches, a benefit to the Legislature, and a bsnefit to the whole nation (applause).
Vote, of thanks to the Lecturer and Chairman—proposed by Mr. T. Falvcy and seconded by Mr. A. J. Miller—brought the proceedings to a close.
