At a meeting of the Library Association

rights and franchise* of the Association to
the Young Men's Christian Aaauciati n.
This he did, because be considered that it
would, in tbatcapacity, more fully meet the
yrants fur which it was designed. Included
in th* resolution was the provision that
three rooms be maintained under the new
a /re* reading room fur hays, a
second for adults, and the third for tha use
of the Association [.roper, A strcnu -fis
opposition was made Ui the passage of this
measure, and Mr Gepbart thought it ad
visable to withdraw his resolution Wc
sinceraly hope that the Library Association
may meet with greater prosperity and bo
come of more benefit to the masse* of the
inhabitants of this town. An institution
of the kind is eminently necessary, hut un
leas, in a little community like this, if
throw* open it# door# to all, it liecomos a
supernumerary institution. The Y. M C
A ~ of this place, were the originator* of the
Library Association, and the passage of the
resolution would have been a commendable
move. It is, however, lest to allow the
manager* to conduct it in the manner
thry think proper in the premise*.
