PREMIUMS offered by the Society, instituted at London, for

the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce, for the Year 1803.

of this kingdoin, by giving rewards for all such useful Inventions, Discoveries and Improvements, (though not mentioned in this book,) as tend to that purpose ; and, in pursuance of This plau, the Society have already expended near FIFTY THOUSAND POUNDS, adyaiced by voluntary subscriptions of their members, and legacies bequeathed.

The manner in which this money has been distributed may be seen by applying to the Secre. tary or other officers of the Society, at their house in the Adelphi. The Register of the Premiums and Bounties they have given will shew the very great advantages which the Public have derived from this Justitution.

The meetings of the Society are held every Wednesday, at seven o'clock in the evening, from the fourth Wednesday in October to the first Wednesday in June. The several Committees meet on other evenings in the week during the session.

In order still farther to promote the laudable views of this Society, it may be necessary to explain the mode by which its members continue to be elected.

Each member has the privilege, at any weekly meeting of the SOCIETY, of proposing any person who is desirous to become a member, provided such proposal is signed by three members of the Society.

Peers of the Realm or Lords of Parliament are, on their being proposed, immediately ballotted for; and the name, with the addition and place of abode, of every other person proposing to bc. come a member, is to be delivered to the Secretary, who is to read the same, and properly insert the name in a list, which is to be hung up in the Society's room until the next meeting; at which time such person shall be ballotted for ; and, if two-thirds of the members, then voting, ballot in his favour, he shall be deemed a perpetual member, upon payment of Twenty Guineas at one payment; or a subscribing member, upon payment of any suin nut less than Two Guineas annually.

Every member is entitled to vote and be concerned in all the transactions of the Society, and to attend and vote at the several Committees. He has also the privilege of recommending two persons as Auditors, at the weekly meeting of the Society; and, by addressing a note to the Housekeeper, of introducing his friends to examine the various models, machines, and produce tions, in different branches of arts, manufactures, and commerce, for which rewards have been bestuwed; and to inspect the magnificent series of moral and historical paintings so happily contrived and completed by James BARRs, Esq. which, with some valuable busts and stafues, decorate the Great Room. He has likewise the use of a valuable Library; and is entitied to the annual Volume of the Suciety's Transactions.

The time appointed for admission to the paintings or models, is from ten to two o'clock, Sun. deys and Wednesdays excepted.
