A meeting of the supporters of this institution, .,bich was opened in October last at Bangor, was old on Monday in the Town Hall, Liverpool. he layor presided, and the Earl of Powis and a oputation from the Council of the College were Ifjo present.—The Mayor stated that the new -e was in urgent need of funds, and seeing at a recent meeting at Manchester a sum of A had been subscribed, Liverpool, with its ger and more intimate relations with the upality, ought to do at least as much. (Hear, )-On the motion of Mr Alderman Chambres, ided by Mr J. Hughes, and supported by •x. W. Rathbone, M.P., a vote of. welcome to the deputation was passed with acclamation.—The Earl of Powis expressed the pleasure it gave him to njoet so large a gathering of his fellow- oonntr^ men. They had been very successful in slart, and especially in the appointment of 11 'principal and staff of professors, and their its were in numbers quite as satisfactory as tney could expect at first, and were of a class which spuke well for the success of the College. The erage age of the students were 22, which was proof that a great want needed to be supplied. (Hear, hear.) The residents in Wales had done theii duty well in swppoiting the College, and he hoped io see their example followed by the Welsh residents in Liverpool. (Applause. I Principal Re.i. hel stated in detail the system of the college Wurk. At present there were 63 students, but he anti ipated an early increase. They were deter- mined to maintain their status as a University College. As to the character oi the stndents, tlieo were plenty of will and enthusiasm, but the material was rather raw, which was to be attributed to the want of good intermediary education. In nine centres in North Wales they were giving courses of lectures at nominal fees and some were delivered in Welsh. (Hear, hear1) Sir R I Cunliffe, M.P., remarked that all the students of tv-j new college, with two exceptions only, were Welshmen. He hoped to see in the coming session an Intermediate Education Bill psssed for Wa' :s, and thought there was a reasonable prosnect for it. (Applause.) This would prove of course, an important feeder to their University College.—Captain Verney paid a tribute to the labours of the Liverpool Council of Education, and « jccially to those of Mr W. Rathbone, M.P., in educational work. Mr C. Bushell also addressed the meeting. The Mayor announced Liverpool subscriptions to the College 'to the amount of over £ 6,0 ;0 which included Mr W. Rathbone. M.P J. Roberts, M.P., £ 1,300; the late Mr R. S. Hudson, £ 1,000 and Mr Henry Tate, xi,ooo.
