proved at the last general meeting, has been printed, and the society formed into a limited liability company. _

Abolitiim of Cm-tifirnte Duly.—-The committee have given their support to petitions for abolition of duty on certificates, and signified their approval of the Bills now before Parliament for this object.

Libnn-y.—Although the room taken by the society is in every _way

adapted for the formation of a good library, and has been fitted up with a view to being used for this object, the committee have been unable to make satisfactory progress in this matter beyond the taking in of the law reports and law journals for the past year, and the purchase of a few good text-books. The committee hoped to be able to induce the corporation to allow the law reports belonging to them to be removed to the society’s rooms, on loan; but the Finance Committee of the corporation could not see their way to accede io the request, having communicated with several towns, and not being able to find a precedent. The committee desire to express their obligations to those members of the society who have so kindlylent various sets of the older reports. The committee have continual complaints by members of the society as to the small amount of work the society has done; and although they have given careful consideration to all matters brought under their notice, they are strongly of opinion the society can never be a success unless a first-class library is established, and then some annual benefit will thus accrue to every member of the profession which will make it really worth his while to become a member. The committee have been hampered throughout by a lack of funds, as, beyond one or two offers, there has been no response to their applications for subscriptions for this purpose. There is not a complete set of reports in the town, and‘ the want is strongly felt by the profession, as also of many expensive standard text-books. The committee recommend the issuing of debenture stock for the formation of a library more commensurate with the requirements of the profession-a course which they are given to understand has been very successful in other towns. They have carefully selected a list of books, consisting of complete sets of reports, statutes, and standard text-books, and got in a considerable number of tenders for the same, and find, in order to place an eflicient library on a satisfactory basis, they will require a sum of £350 or ‘£400. They consider there ought to be little or no difilculty in raising this sum on four per cent. debentures amongst the members of the profession, as there wil be a thoroughly good security, which will be increased yearly by the addition of new books bought from the proceeds of the annual subscriptions. There are about 60 members of the profession in the town, of whom about 40 intimated their willingness to become members of the society, and this would produce an annual revenue of £70, which,'after payment of rent and debenture interest, would leave a sum of £28 for the purchase of books and expenses of the society.
