Ladies’ Department, — The resuscitation of the Society, whose Constitution is given below, is a source of pleasure to us. It was formed in 1818, and consisted of between forty and fifty members; but death and other causes reduced it very low. During its active existence , it was evidently of great advantage to many, if not all, of its members. With our whole heart, we now bid it God-speed. Its objects are highly commendable.
