La Martiniere, Calcutta.
AFFILIATED, 1857. La Martiniere of Calcutta, together with similar Institutions at Lucknow and Lyons, was founded by General Ciande Martin, a native of the latter place, and a General in the service of the King of Oudh.
General Martin bequeathed a large sum of money to be devoted to the establishment of a school for the Christian inhabitants of Calcutta, under the direction of the Supreme Court. The School was opened on the 1st March, 1836, and was, according to the provision in General Martin's will, named “ La Martiniere."
By decrees of the Supreme and High Courts, a body of Governors has been constituted, consisting of the Governor-General, the Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal, the Chief Justice of the High Court, the Bishop of Calcutta, the Commander-in-Chief, the Members of Council, the two Senior Barrister Judges of the High Court, the Advocate-General for the time being, and the Chairman of the Justices of Calcutta. The ex-officio Governors elect annually four other Governors, who, with one of the ex-officio Governors, form a Board of Acting Governors, to whom the general control of the Institution is entrusted.
By the decree of the Supreme Court, there must be upon the Foundation not less than 75 boys and 40 girls. The Foundationers are entirely supported from the funds of the School, and receive an apprentice-fee or other allowance on leaving the School.

AFFILIATED, 1857. This Institution was founded in 1818 under the patronage of the Marquis of Hastings, then Governor-General of India, by the Revs. Dr. Carey, Dr. Marshman, and W. Ward, who, together with olonel Krefting, the Danish Governor of Serampore, and J. C. Marshman, Esq., formed the first Council.
In 1821 it received a munificent donation from the King of Denmark, consisting of certain premises to the north-west of the College, and this act of liberality was followed in 1828 by the grant of a Royal Charter giving perpetuity to the Institution and its endowments. At the cession of Serampore to the East India Company, this Charter was confirmed at the especial request of the Danish Sovereign.
The ground on which the College stands was purchased chiefly by snbscription ; the entire expense of the buildings, amounting to about £15,000, was met out of the private funds of the Serampore Missionaries, who were the first promoters of the undertaking. After the death of Dr. Marshman, the funds for carrying on the operations of the College were provided partly by the endowments, but chiefly by the liberality of J. C. Marshman, Esq., the only surviving member of the original Council. On his departure from India in 1856, the College was placed under the general direction of the Baptist Missionary Society, which has since contributed towards its support and become identified with its operations.
It is conducted by three European professors, assisted by twelve * native teachers. The number of youths in the College Department is about seventy; in the School, three hundred.
The interest of funds raised by the late Mr. Ward in Europe and America supports wholly, or in part, several European youths con. nected with the Mission or wishing to become so, and also a boarding school for the children of native preachers. Scholarships to the amount of about Rs. 40 monthly are distributed amongst the most deserving of the native students in the
College classes. An education fee, exacted from the European students, contributes to the preservation and improvement of the library.
The course of study is intended to impart a liberal education, and special attention is paid to the principles of Christianity.
The present members of the Council are:-R. Scott-Moncrieff, Esq., Revs. J. Trafford, and C. B. Lewis.
