ure:—ln presenting our Fifteenth Annual
Report, we would acknowledge the blessing
of Divine Providence, which has attended
our labors during the year, and Would again

to our care.
For information respecting the statistical,
sanitary and financial condition of the in

to the reports of the Superintendent, Prin

which are herewith submitted.
The Board of Managers feel deeply im

far as possible, a comfortable and happy
A much huger number of chlidred have
been indentured during the past year than
in anyyear since the opening of the Insti r ,
tution, and we'are happy to say that in no
former period have the children, who have
been discharged, done so well; indeed,
those who have again relapsed into their
evil habits are rare exceptions. The em
ployinent of an agent of the Board, whose
duty it is to visit, counsel and encourage
the discharged inmates, has been produc
tive of most salutary Influence.
The Indenturing Committee have la
bored with the ':kindest solicitude in the
discharge of their duties; it is owing to
their ethane that so many of oar chil
dren have been provided with coin•
sortable hoines, , and aftbrded the op
portunity of obtaining the knowl
edge of some useful trade or occupation.
The discipline and instruction of the in
mates receive the cordial approval of the
Board, and it is hoped tlfat the moral and
religious training which our children have
received will be the means, through the
blessing of our Heavenly Father, iu lead
ing many of them, who have hitherto been
the subjects of vice and evil influenees to a
life of honor and virtue. Our thanks are
due to those clergymen in the vicinity who
have kindly volunteered their services in
the chapel exercises during the year and
who have thus aided the institution in the
religious instruction of those committed to
our care. •

condition of Miller, consequent on his ex
posure and other injuries. -
