The first annual general meeting
of the proprietors in the National Loan Fund Society, for the purpose
of receiving the Director's report, electing some Directors, &c. took
place on Thursday. It was numerously and most respectably attended. Amongst
the proprietors present we observed the Lord Provost of Glasgow, Mr. Stoddart,
the treasurer of the City of Edinburgh; Andrew White, Esq., M.P. for Sunderland;
and several gentlemen connected with the Society from Exeter, Bath, Brighton,
Bristol, Birmingham, Worcester, Falmouth, Salisbury, Liverpool, &c. T.

It appeared from the report,
that the original capital of £500,000 of the Society is divided into 50,000
shares. Of this number 18,623 have been disposed of, and the deed of settlement
has been executed by the proprietors of 14,659.
The number of policies issued
by the Society, including Deferred Annuities, amounts to 1,230, and the
aggregate premiums received therefrom amounts to £31,219.19s.7d. The sum
received on Immediate Annuities amounts to £21,251.3s.2d., and the present
income of the Society is equal to £19,065.8s.9d.
The claims already paid by
the Society on five policies amounts to £1,800, and the sum received on
short and lapsed policies, upon which no claim can accrue, amounts to
£1,571.1s.9d. It is upon these results, so early exhibited in favour of
the National Loan Fund Life Assurance Society, that the directors have
ventured to anticipate for the future steady and prosperous results.

VALUABLE WORKS PUBLISHED BY C. DOLMAN, 61, NEW BOND-STREET. Just published,
Vols. I., II., and III., price 12s. each, in cloth, THE CHURCH HISTORY
of ENGLAND, from the Year 1500 to 1688, chiefly with regard to CATHOLICS.
By CHARLES DODD, with Notes, and a Continuation to the beginning of the
present Century, by the Rev. M. A. TIERNEY, F.S.A.
The work of Hugh Tootle, better
known under the assumed name of Charles Dodd, stands alone among the compilations
of Catholic History. Commencing with the period of her first misfortunes
in this country, the writer accompanies the ancient Church in all the
vicissitudes of her course, during the next two centuries. He marks the
origin of the Reformation in the wayward passions of Henry: mourns, with
religion, over the ruined altars and desecrated shrines of Edward's reign:
watches their alternate rise and fall under the sister sovereigns, Mary
and Elizabeth; and, tracing the varied calamities of his Catholic countrymen
under the dynasty of the Stuarts, closes his work with the closing fortunes
of that unhappy family. It is proposed, in the present edition, to place
the work under the two grand divisions of history and biography; to print
the history in the earlier, the biography in the latter, volumes; to subjoin
to each volume an Appendix, containing its own records properly arranged:
and to insert a reference in the notes to each article of that Appendix,
according as its subject arises in the course of the narrative. It is
only requisite to add, that the lives in the biographical part will be
methodically disposed; that the authorities both of Dodd and its editor
will be carefully stated in the notes; and that a General Index to the
contents of the whole work will be given at the end of the Continuation.
To be completed in 14 vols.

appearance of the present work the more acceptable to all who desire to
become acquainted with the first Institution, and the many interesting
events which have accompanied the Progress, of the Church of Christ. The
present volume will be found rich in learned disquisitions, which, from
the depth and originality of thought which distinguish them, cannot fail
to be interesting and pleasing to all.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
"Mr. Tomlins has bent the
powers of an active and reflecting, well stored with the most valuable
lore of our national literature, to investigate the causes of the success

Book' in which everything that is vital is retained, while superfluities
are unsparingly rejected." - Court Gazette.

which its merits deserve." - Courier.

that to a large class of persons his work will be highly acceptable."

The publisher of this work
has the gratification to announce, that the sale has exceeded his most
sanguine expectations, and that a new edition, making, in the whole, a
demand for nearly 30,000 copies, is already called for.
He permits himself to hope,
that the main reason for this great popularity is the circumstance of
deriving all information from those fountain-heads of refinement, Paris
and London, by one familiar with the best society of both. This must necessarily
create a confidence to the prejudice of works less authenticated, or of
Another great advantage of
the Ball Room Guide is, the fidelity wherewith all those variations in
the world of fashion, which relate to dancing, are annually noted down
- (gathered from the archives of the palace itself) - and which renders
it a text book for the entire circle of polished society.
The editor of the Times calls
this:- "A very neat, well got up, sensibly written little book, worth
at least five times the price at which it is charged. Its merits ought
to make it a work of great utility."

" Let no novice presume to enter a ball room without having perused it."
The editor of the Chronicle
says:- "Certainly much needed, and far superior to any thing of the kind

and should be found in the hands of every female between the ages of 17
The editor of the Herald observes:- "This little book is indeed a 'family
counsellor,' we recommend it with confidence as a work unexceptionable
in its sentiment, and worthy of public support."
The editor of the Sun observes:- "We earnestly recommend this neat 'Epitome
of Woman's Social Duties and Domestic Enjoyments' to every maid, wife,
and mother, within the sphere of our admonitory influence. The store of
