One half of this kuin (fo.taoi) waa to constitute a perpetual fund for tbe purchase of fuel for tbe poor of tbia city, tbe interest only being available for that purpose Tbe remaining half (fLVffn) waa to be Inverted in Corporation stocks until tbe Interest amounted to S6.tK.lU more When a fuud of ?10 liuo should have been thus accumulated, tbe interest money accruing on the whole of that amount waa to he uaed thereafter for the purchase of grocerits for me worn** 01 our cuy. na idc in dar pi July, lvlc. our corporate authorities appointed u trustees of the fund Mraars.

Tbe intereat of the fuel fund (S&IU per annum) has been judiciously expe&ded every year, the contract for furiilibing being awarded to the lowest respousible bidder, after due advertisement for proposals aud the distribution being In charge of the Indies' Benevolent Societv of Georgetown. which tnonlti Itself of tb? trust in the fair and Impartial manner to be expected from the well-known character of Its members. In relation to the grocery fund, th? main object we had in view In this communication, was to announce, and we do so with great pleasure, and congratulate our citizens on the fact, thst the Interest on the original fund of fo.uoo had accumulated on the first day of July of the prearnt year to the sum of S-VICHi IN, maklnp ?
