NATIONAL THRIFT. At a meeting of the National Thrift Society, held at the London Offices on Saturday, the following resolutions were passed 1. That the coffee palaces, oocoa houses, &o.,eata. blished in London, and in various parts of the king- dom be communicated with for the purpose of establishing penny savings banks in connection there- with. 2. That series of cheques of the value of Id., 2d., 3d., 4d., 6J., and Is. be prepared, to be given instead of "beer money," &c., by those willing to adopt the system; the cheques to be exchanged at the society's penny banks (and elsewhere according to arrange- ment), for deposit books, in which the amount of the cheque shall be duly entered. Accounts can thus be opened and maintained which it is believed will be productive jof much good in the formation of thrifty habits, besides being greatly conducive to temperance and sal f respect. 3. That as requests for the society's work are coming in from all parts of the kingdom, and that as the whole of the funds of the penny banks established by the society go direct into the Government Post Office or Trustee savings banks, the public be earnestly re- quested to support the work of the society as set forth in its prospectus to be obtained at the various branch offices, or from the head office at Oxford. 4. That further centres of the society's work be established at Birmingham, Chester, Durham, Glou- cester, Liverpool, Manchester, Northampton, South- ampton, Glasgow, Inverness, Dublin, and Carnarvon, and that branches be established at other towns not yet represented as applications are received, and funds become available for the purpose. 5. That the Earl of Derby, who recently forwarded a donation to the funds of the society, and expressed an interest in its work, be requested to become a vice president of the society for the year ensuing. 6. That other of the City companies be requeated to follow the example of the Ironmongers' Company in voting a donation to the funds of the society. 7. That the first annual meeting of the society be held in London during the m"nth of December, due notice of the same having previously been made public.
