THANKSGIVING FUND FOR THE COMPLE- TION OF ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL. On Monday afternoon a public meeting was held at the Mansion House, for the purpose of considering the best means of providing funds for the completion of St. Paul's Cathedral, the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor in the chair. Among the subscribers were:— Her Majesty the Queen, £ 1,000; the Prince of Wales, £.500; Mr. Richard Foster, £1,000; Mr. Peek, M.P., £750; Lady Burdett Coutts, £100; the Dean of Westminster, £100; the Dean of St. Paul's, £200 (in addi- tion to JE1,000 already promised); Canon Liddon, £100; Canon Gregory, £100; and Canon Lightfoot, £100 (in addition to £500 already promised). The Lord Mayor, in a brief introduction, said they were met to enlist the sympathies of the whole nation for the completion of their metropolitan cathedral, and then called on Mr. Beresford Hope to move the first resolu- tion :—" That the National Thanksgiving for the happy recovery of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales would be incomplete without some national thank-offering to mark the people's gratitude and that in the opinion of this meeting the most suitable form which such thank- offering could take would be the completion of the cathedral in which that national thanksgiving was offered up to Almighty God." The speaker then entered into a detailed account of the proposed decorative treatment of the Cathe- dral, and said they took up the naked work which Wren left sore at heart at the age of 90 years, in order that it should be completed as was the wish of the architect. Mr. W. H. Smith, M.P. for Westminster, seconded the reso- lution, which was carried unanimously. Other resolutions in support of the foregoing wero then put to the meeting, and carried nem din., and a vote of thanks to his lordship, for presiding on the occasion, closed the pro- ceedings. Among those present were Dean Stanley, the Earl of Faversham, the Rev. Gordon Calthorp, Lord George Hamilton, the Bishop of London, Mr. Wren Hoskyns, M.P., Mr. Brassey, M.P., &c.
