The report was discussed at great length, but the meeting could not adopt it, because the law provides that a notice of a proposed araeudment shall be published at least five weeks before action is taken upon it, and that it shall also receive the signatura of the Attorney-General. The affairs of the company have not moved along of late as smoothly as the members could wish, and the opiuion seems to prevail that there have been too many iucendiary fires. Resolutions were offered to fix the amount insured for at two-thirds of the value of real estáte, and that only two-thirds of the value of personal property destroyed should be paid upon adju3tment, but all were finally laid upon the table.

We shall publish the proposed new charter next week.
