Insurances are granted by this society on buildings, goods merchandise, and efK-cts ships -n port, harbour, or dock goods in boats or canal, or in waggons; agricultural produce, farm- ing stock, implements, and utensils of husbandry, from loss or damage by fire, in any part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The Norwich Union Society, instituted 1797, was the first office to make returns to the parties insured, and its connexions have, to the present time, enjoyed this important benefit. The last return on the premiums paid between Michaelmas 1811 and Michaelmas 1845, was made in 1846, distributing in that year amongst the p rties insured £ 50 000 making a total of JE:350 OOf) returned to the assured since the first establishment of the office. and this per centage was paid to every insurer without excep- tion, whether his policy had been in existence the whole period or for only a single year, or even but for three months, an ad- vantage not afLrded by any other society whatever. It is expected that the next return will be made in the course of the ensuing year 1850. The directors have the strongest grounds to expect that the future returns will equal the pist, and the constant increase of business (over sixty millions) sufficiently attests the public con- fidence in the stabili'y "'is company. These nnprecedented returns show the great benefits which insurers in this otfice have derived, and the rates are the same as charged by other offices (where no returns are made.
