'I THE ASYLUM FOB FATHERLESS CHIL- DREN, BEEDHAM. The general meeting and Midsummer election of this charity was held on Monday at the London Tavern, Bishopsgate-s.treet, for the purpose of receiving a report of the domestic and financial state of the insti- tution, choosing the several officers for the ensuing year, and electing 16 children (ten boys and six girls) to the benefits of the institution out of a list of 76 candidates. Mr. Henry Harvey, sub-treasurer, took the chair, who claimed indulgence as this was his debut as a chairman of a public meeting (hear). The progress of the sooiaty was encouraging, and this was the 21st annual meeting, and now it had attained its age. But like the cases of many individuals, the event of com- ing of age was accompanied with the encumbrance erf mortgage debt. They had rapidly, however, diminished their debt. In 1862 their debt was £ 16,400; at the last audit it was -08,150, and of late they received 30 children instead of 20, as formerly. This charity had received 555 children, and there were now 196 chil- dren under the protection and nurture of the institu- tion. There had been only 16 deaths out of the total number of 555. During the last six years they had been at Eeedham only one death had occurred, and that was from an accidental cause. To Dr. Rose and the matron the hearty thanks of the charity were especially due (hear). Dr. Eose moved the adoption of the report, Mr. Twining having seconded the motion, it was carried with acclamation. Mr. Mead, in highly complimentary terms, proposed thanks to the treasurer, sub-treasurer, and honorary secretary, and that they be requested to resume their duties for the ensuing year. Mr. F. Clark seconded the resolution, which was agreed to unanimously. The Chairman acknowledged the compliment in brief terms. Votes of thanks were presented to the several medical and other officers, committee, &c., and they were requested to act for the ensuing year. These gentlemen, with the auditors, were severally re- elected.
