Delhi College.

AFFILIATED, 1864. An Oriental College, founded in 1792, and supported by voluntary contributions of Mahomedan gentlemen, acquired a large accession of income in 1829 by the munificent gift of Rs. 1,70,000 of the late Nawab Itmad-ud-Dowlah, formerly Minister at Lucknow. The College was then divided into two departments, an Oriental and an English ; and in 1841 Mr. F. Boutros was appointed first Principal ; in 1855 the Institution, up to that time under the supreme direction of a Managing Committee, was placed under the control of the Director of Public Instruction for the NorthWest Provinces.

General Assembly's Institution, Calcutta.

AFFILIATED, 1864. This Institution was established in 1830, by the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. It is the oldest Institutiou of the kind in India ; for it was here that the system, now all but universally followed, was first tried, -of imparting the highest forms of knowledge, including sound Christian instruction, through the medium of the English language. Before this experiment, Bengali or Sanskrit had been exclusively favoured in Bengal by the Government, by Oriental Scholars, and even by Missionaries themselves. The new system was introduced by Dr. Duff, who began his Missionary labours by founding this lustitution, Valuable help in the way of procuring pupils was given at the commencement by the famous Rajah Ram Molun Roy. The success of the Institution soon surpassed all expectations. The GovernorGeneral declured publicly that it had produced “unparalleled results." After having been carried on for some years in various hired premises, the Institution was removed in 1839 to the

present building, which is most conveniently situated in Cornwallis Square, in the very centre of the Hindu population.

The Institution was temporarily closed in 1844, in consequence of tbe secession of the Missionaries with the Free Church. But it was re-opened in 1846 by the Church of Scotland, under the superintendence of the late Rev. Dr. Ogilvie, by whom it was carried on uninterruptedly, and with great efficiency, till bis death in 1871.

The General Assembly's Institution is divided into two departments, – the College Department and the School Department.

The College Department, which has been affiliated in the Faculty of Arts to the University of Calcutta since 1864, was attended in 1878 by 328 students, divided into four classes, and paying a monthly fee of Rs. 5 each. In these classes the regular subjects of the University curriculum are taught, embracing the English language and Literature, the Sanskrit language and Literature, History, Mathematics, pure and applied, Chemistry, Mental Philosophy, and the doctrines and evidences of the Christian religion.

The School Department was attended in 1878 by a daily average of 928 pupils, divided into fourteen classes, and paying fees in the different classes from 8 annas to Rs. 2-8 a month. Instruction is given in these classes in English, Bengali, and Sanskrit, History and Geography, Arithmetic, Algebra, and Geometry, according to the degree of advancement which they have attained. Careful attention is also given to instruction in religious knowledge.

In 1878, the fees collected in the Institution (including both departments) averaged more than Rs. 2,030 monthly; which with the Government grant of Rs. 350 monthly, sufficed to pay all the local expenses (i: e., excluding the salaries of the European Missionaries), and left a surplus of Rs. 13,000 at the end of the year.

Scholarships and Prizes. 1. The Macfarlane Gold Medal is awarded every year to the student of the fourth-year class who shows the greatest proficiency in all the College examinations of the year.

2. 'The Ogilvie Memorial Scholarship, of at least Rs. 5 per mensem, is awarded every alternate year to the student of the second-year class who takes the highest position in all the College examinations, and succeeds in passing the F. A. Examination of the University. This Scholarship is tenable in the General Assembly's College for the two years after passing the First Examination in Arts.

3. The Macleod Memorial Scholarship is awardeıl to a Chris. tian student, wlio, being an undergraduate of the Calcutta University, is preparing for the ministry of the Christian Church,

4. Several prizes and scholarships are awarded for general proficiency in the College examinations.

Lahore Mission School.

AFFILIATED, 1864. This Institution was founded on the 19th December, 1849, soon after the annexation of the Punjab, and is the oldest English School in the province.

The four religions represented in the School are the Hindu, Mussulman, Sikh, and Christian. The greater part are Hindus. The number of Sikhs is small, owing to the fact that they compose a small part of the community.

The instructive staff consists of the Rev. C. D. Forman, M.A., Principal; C. B. Newton, B.A. ; Mr. R. C. Dass, Head Master; and seventeen other Teachers.

Cathedral Mission College, Calcutta.

AFFILIATED, 1865. This College was established by the Church Missionary Society in 1865, chiefly at the instance of the late Bishop Cotton, who, in his last charge, delivered in 1863, expressed his earnest desire to see a Missionary College established in connection with the Church of England, in wbich native undergraduates of the University might be educated up to the B. A. standard under purely Christian influences.

It takes its name from the circumstance of the Missionaries who take part in the work of instruction within its walls, being supported by the Cathedral Endowment Fund, originally raised by Bishop Wilson for the support of a body of Missionary Canons in connection with his new Cathedral, with the view of thereby exercising a directly Christian influence upon the upper classes of
