In evidence of which, this is subscribed at Glasgow, the 30th of September 1816, by X. Y., (one of the Masters.)

As the annual prizes, given in public, have been productive of great emulation and much good in this School, it is fondly hoped that some of its numerous friends will set apart such a sum, as the interest will purchase a gold medal to the dux in the Rector's class. Were a measure of this kind adopted, the name of the Scholar, in gold letters, placed on a tablet in the Common Hall, would act as a lasting stimulus to the Students in succeeding classes. A donation of this nature would also show an approbation of a seminary, for which the Magistrates and Council contribute the liberal annual sum of at least five hundred pounds, including the rent of the buildings and play-grounds.

Report of the Committee on the Grammar-School †.

year.

On Saturday, 28th September 1816, the Lord Provost and Magistrates held the annual meeting, for the distribution of Prizes to the Boys of the GrammarSchool. The meeting was full and respectable; several of the Professors of the University, Clergy of the City, and other literary gentlemen attending, besides the parents and relations of the Scholars. It was stated by the Convener of the Grammar-School Committee, C. S. Parker, Esq., that, according to custom, the School had been eight times examined in the course of the year, by the Professors of the University, the Clergy, and the Committee of Council. At each examination the place which each boy held in his class was marked, and the Prizes for general eminence were adjudged according to the average rank throughout the To promote punctual attendance, a Prize was also awarded to every Boy who had not been one meeting absent throughout the year; also to every one who had not been once absent during the whole course, which now extends to five years. The lists containing the names of the Boys entitled to Prizes were handed to the Lord Provost; and each boy, as his name was called, came forward, and received his Prize accordingly. After the distribution was over, his Lordship, in a very appropriate and animated address, congratulated all present on the very flourishing state of this Seminary. He stated, that it was very creditable to the Boys to hear their progress in their education, during the last year, so favourably reported by such competent judges; and it was creditable to the Masters, by whose talents and industry the School had attained its present eminence. He adverted particularly, in very strong terms, to the recent institution of a fifth class, under Dr. Chrystal, the Rector of the School, which, in point of numbers who attend it, and the progress made in the different branches taught in it, has greatly surpassed the sanguine expectations that had been previously formed. He mentioned that he had the authority of Mr. Walker, Professor of Humanity, and other gentlemen belonging to the University, to state, that the institution of this class had their entire approbation, and was considered by them as an essential improvement. He recommended strongly to the parents of the Boys of the fourth year, to avail themselves of this improvement; and recommended to all, a perseverance in good behaviour, and an eager pursuit of their different studies, by which they would raise still higher the reputation of this School, and bring themselves, in the world, to honour and fortune. He concluded by intimating, that the Rudiments class will be opened on Thursday the 10th of October, by Mr. Gibson, whose merits as a teacher are sufficiently well known; and that the other classes will meet on Wednesday the 2d of October, at ten o'clock; when boys from Mr. Gibson's last class, or from any other school, who intend to join the Rector's class, are expected to come forward.
