The minder of Its mem bers in 1810 very considci.ibly exceeded that of any prclnus year, and there is every Indication that cheering " progress" will marl; the transac tions Tor 1S47. This is a It should Ii3. We bellew the association is conducted in the most Judicious and imp.iiilal manner, and with the view, simply nnd solely, to promote thu cause of Ait In our Country, and to win faior and "aid and comfort" for it ineritoiioin dbclplc.. Tho character of tho gentlemen who arc charged with the active management of thu luihuss af fairs of the Union, is a sufficient guaranty for tho houorablo and faithful perfoi mance of its " trusts," snd we cannot too highly commend tho objects and ends at which they, in behalf of the Union, aim. The Committee of Management for the year 1817 lune already purchased more than eighty works of Ait, in pursuance of the Plan indica ted in the adveiti-cpient which will be found in our mtvei rising column., for distribution among those v. ho may become members plior to the drawing in December next. Among thaui are a marble bas-relief representing " Christ giving sight to the blind," by the eminent sculptor, IJuowx, and pictures by Cr.ors.'.r, liANxr.v, Or r.A.Mi, Cot.n, llt.Misi.iox, (j'wxoew, I!ol'teli.i:, liixuiiAJl, (whoso picture of " Tho Jolly l'lat boatuicn'' .Mr. l)o.r.v is engraving for the mem bers for tho present year) Ixxns, l'liicn, Winn, Woninisroox, Oddit., (3t.As, .Shuiooue, Tal uot, Cir.u.suu'AT.n, and other artists w hoo woiks have been found woithy of encoiiiagemcnt and patronage.
