[In place of the full Report read at Milford, the following general statement is furnished by Rev. S. P. LEEDS, Secretary.]

About eight hundred dollars have been contributed to the Education Society during the past year, in New Hampshire, or nearly three times the amount annually raised for several years past. Thirteen young men have been assisted in Dartmouth College. Now that the fund accumulated during the war has been exhausted, the Society needs aid to an extent it has not done for many years.



The Annual Meeting of the Trustees of the Ministers' and Widows' Charitable Fund was held at the office of Dr. Bouton in the State House, June 1, 1870. The Treasurer made his reports, which were adopted. Rev. John K. Young, D. D., was chosen a Trustee in the place of Rev. P. B. Day, D. D., deceased.

Made choice of the following persons as officers for the ensuing year:

PresidentRev. N. BOUTON, D. D.
Secretary-Rev. Wm. R. JEWETT.
Auditor-Rev. B. P. STONE, D. D.

Prudential Committee Rev. N. BOUTON, D. D., Rev. WM. R. JEWETT, SHADRACI SEAVEY, Esq.

At a meeting of the Prudential Committee, held immediately after the annual meeting of the Trustees, appropriations were made to the amount of $200, to eight widows in indigent cir. cumstances.

The Treasurer presented his reports, showing that the funds of the Widows' Charitable Society amounted on the first day of June, 1870, to

$2,763.05 The amount of the Ministers' and Widows' Charitable Fund, on June 1, 1870, was

$1,464,41 The following donations have been received from June 1, 1869, to June 1, 1870:

For the information of any who may ask why our pecuniary resources are divided into two distinct sums, I would state, that the moneys contributed to the Society previous to the charter being modified, are left apart, forming the Widows' Charitable Fund. The interest of this fund can be paid only to the widows of indigent clergymen. Moneys given subsequently to the modification of the charter, are added to the Ministers' and Widows' Fund, the income of which can be appropriated to indigent clergymen, as well as to the widows of such. The utmost economy has been observed in the management of the funds, the Prudential Committee paying themselves the necessary expenses which they incurred in the collection and disbursement.
