A generous present of 1,000/. to University College, London, towards

a building fund for adding a new wing to the school, has just been made by Mr. Samuel Sharpe. This gift is to be invested in the Funds, and the interest accumulated till other such gifts,— for which it is reasonably expected to be an attracting particle,— and the interest, amount to a sum which will warrant the Council in beginning the new building. The Council of course accepted the gilt, and indulged in a moderate hope that Mr. Sharpe would soon be found to be very successful in teaching by example.
