Assistant Secretary.-FRANK WEBB, Esq. The clergy and all others qualified to make Assurances upon Life in this Society are informed that Assurances upon Life may be made upon payment of Reduced Annual Premiums, viz., upon payment of "four-fifths” of the rates chargeable according to the Society's Table, subject to certain conditions. A Prospectus setting forth the table of reduced rates, and the special conditions referred to, may be had by application at the Office.

Bonus.—The whole available Bonus is the sole property of Life Assurers; no part whatever is taken from it to be shared amongst proprietors. The greatest advantage to Life Assurers necessarily results from this principle of Mutual Assurance. At the end of every fifth year, profits are equitably apportioned amongst existing Life Assurances. By means of Bonus upwards of One Hundred of the earlier Life Assurances have been relieved altogether from the payment of Annual Premiums, and additions made to sums Assured; nearly £150,000 was divided amongst Life Assurances in May, 1861.

Assurers have the privilege at the time of making an Assurance, of selecting the mode in which the Bonus, whenever due, shall be applied, i.e., either in an immediate Cash payment, or to the reduction of the Annual Premium, or to the increase of the Capital sum assured.

Next Bonus in 1866. Assurances made previously to such year will share therein. ASSURANCES may be effected on LIVES, SURVIVORSHIPS,

&c. &c., as stated in the Society's Prospectus, to any amount

not exceeding £5,000. Applications for Prospectuses, or further information, to be made at the Office, 3, BROAD SANCTUARY, WESTMINSTER. (Entrance to the Office at No. 2.)

This Society is strictly confined to the Clergy of the Church of England and of the Episcopal Church of Scotland, their Wives and Families, and the near relations of themselves and Wives, and is distinguished from other institutions by the title of THE CLERGY MUTUAL ASSURANCE SOCIETY."
