The Rellgioui. xract Society had generously offered to double that amount in prizes of Bibles and Teatamenta, and awaited instruction*a*to the same and theconsequent disposal of thia money.—The VicE chairman moved that the offer of Messrs.

He was sure they felt strongly indebted to those gentlemen for the trouble they had taken in tho matter.—Mr. Meldrcm seconded the proportion, which was unanimously agreed to, Mr. Webtlak* remarking that they hoped to raise £100, but did not consider it desirable to wait any longer before dealing with the sum subscribed.
the transfer of th* t. and o. school*.
A letter was read from Captain Bain, a trustee under a chanty termed the " Widows' Fund, notifying that if the Board carried out the purchase of the P. and O., now Eastern District, Schools, and accepted a convey-ance of the property, he should protest against any claim which might hereafter be made by the Board or other person on account of money expended on the buildings, or on tho land comprised in the lease, on the ground that the P. and O. Company had no right to conclude a sale to ths Sohool Board, which, moreover, not fair, provident, or beneficial to the charity to which the property belonged.—Mr. Westlake aaid he would Suggest that no further notice should be taken of the matter.—The Chairman : I don't think wa need take any notice of iL—Mr. Westlaxe said Captain Bam quite misunderstood the facta of the case. They did not purchase the lease, but had a fresh lease for certain properties.—Mr. Meldeum urged that the lease should not be signed unless the director* of the P. and O. Company would give them a guarantee against any claim that might hereafter arise in regard to the pro-p«rty, which oould not be disposed of unless ths wishes of the donor (Mr. Anderson) were strictly carried out. In the lease obtained through the Ecclesiastical Commissioner* it was provided that the Bible ahould be read in the schools ; and directly the trust was broken the property would revert t, the original trustees—Captain Bain, Mr. Howell, and Mr. Thomas Hill. Juat provioua to his death, Mr. Anderson transferred the property and ££0,000 to the director*, the fund to be devoted to charitable purposes iq connection with the company; and he (Mr. Meldrom) contended that if the director* of the company had not carried out the trust reposed in them, tJbe trustees would be able to come to the Southampton School Board and demand the property to be given up to them, together with any additions that might be made to IL For sixteen or eighteen months Csptain Bam refused to sign tho surrender, believing they were not carrying out the wishes of his uncle, Mr. Anderson j and before he signed it he was told that it had been signed by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, which was not the case.—The Chairman: The whole thing has been transferred.--Mr. Westlaes: I will move that no further notice be taken of the matter—Mr. PmrrARi) ded the proposition.—Mr. Meldeum : And I move amendment that a guarantee be obtained from the directors. — The Chairman: There i* not ths slightest necessity for It—Mr. Mxldbcm : The amendment not being seconded, I will move that the letter be inserted in the minutes.—The Rev.

In the draft lease the provision waa also made that the managers should have the right to veto any enlargement of the proeent building, the expense* of which were to be met •by loan.
