The eighth anniversary of this Society was heid at Clay-Street church Suuday afternoon at 3 o'clock?T. L. D. Walford, piesideut, in the chair; Charles P. Rudy, secretary. .The meeting was opened with ringing by Clay-Street school, and prayer by Rev. W.B. McGilvmy. The President then read his annual report, which reviews the work of the Soeiety for the past year, and shows an improvement in nearly every department. Well-deserved thanks are returned to the pastors of the Methodist eburehes and ministers of other . denominations, as well as laymen of their ?own and other schools, for interesting ad dresses and other help during the year. The Presideul issues his call for help du ring the coming term, aud expresses the hope' that many who have hitherto held ott' will be .encouraged and emboldened to come forward .md aid the good work. It gives the follovyiug facts: Twelve regular and three social meetings have beeu held. The Society now has nine self-sustaining and two mission schools. Tlie total roll of ,078 scholars, 8(1 officers, I 258 teacher8?average attendance, 77 per cent.; 3,300 volume* in library?value, ?1,800; 2,500 papers and mnguzines distri buted ; deaths, 1 officer, 1 teacher, and II scholars; conversions, 13G. It recommends special meetings during the year, visitation of small schools, establishment of mission schools, uniform grade lesson system, intro duction of the catechism in all schools, teachers' meetings, aud the new Sunday school paper? Sunday-School Record. The report will doubtless awaken a lively iu terest in the Society and be productive of much good, if its suggestions arc carried out. Mr. A. L. West, assistant president, then made his annual report. He stated that he had visited all the schools during the year, besides two in Norfolk and one in Baltimore, with a view to'obtaining information upou the following questions: "What is the best mode of inducing children to join the 'schools?" "What is the best mode of re taining children in the schools ? " " What is the be^t mode of conducting schools?" "What is the best system of teachiug?" "How can the schools keep themselves sup plied with teachers h " To all of these ques tions there were many answers, and many different modes suggested. He n commended boaidsof visitors and systematic visitation hy teachers, uniform series of lessons, and simple machinery in management of schools. Dr. Gmnbery then addressed the meet ing, congratulating the Society on the arrival of its eighth birthday, and wishing many happy and prosperous returns of the same. The Society had continued to increase in in terest and grow in favor with God and man. I Among the many benefits that had gone out from this organization not least was that of Christian communion and intercourse monthly. Heads full of plans to advance the good cause met with willing hands ready to execute them, and great good had been and would he accomplished. He called attention to the German school held in Clay Street school-room cvprv Sabbath afternoon, and, on motion of Kev. G. C. Vandersliee, it was resolved that the German school he re quested to unite with the Society, and Mr. Caspar Briell, 'superintendent, he elected twelfth vice-president of the Society.

University of Virginia??Annual Rh rouT of the Board of Visitor^,?The an nual reiyjrt of the Board of Visitors of the UniYCfsity of Virginia has been transmitted b the General As>emhly through the .Second Auditor. The revenue of the University for the last, fiscal year was ?32,5G0.SG, against ?31,428.85 for the previous year?showing an increase of ?1,132.01 ; uud this increase was.effected notwithstanding the number of students at tending lectures in 1872-3, was 842, against! 36o atteuding in 1871-2. The current ex- j peuses were reduced from ?41,882.74 for 1871-2 to ?40,985.98 for 1872-3, including the ?6,000 annually appropriated by the trustees of the Miller Fund?or, (rejecting that item from the disbursements as well as from the receipts)?from ?35,882.74 to ?34,985.98; equal to ?896!76. The Board of Visitors have given their moHt anxious uttention to the finances of the University, and at their annual meeting in June last adopted measures which they feel warranted in believing will hereafter insure a current income adequate to meet current expeuses and enable them to prepare to make some provision for the Board debt, which in a few years will begiD to full due. While, owing to causes adverted to iu the last unnual report, the numbers attending the University have not increased, and the Board, therefore, find themselves unable to develop the University upon the scale which all true lovers of the State and of learning would desire, still much has been done. The chair of Agriculture and Natural History has been put iu operation with Dr. John Randolph Puge as professor. Pro vision has been made in the school of chem istry for a course specially adapted for train ing practical druggists and apothecaries. A class of practical physics has been establish ed, and other improvements are reported. The deutb of Professor McGufley is noticed with profound regret; and the election of Professor N. K.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE STATE HOARD OF HEALTH. The Fecond Annual Report of the State Board of Health and Vital Statistics has been printed for transmission to the General As sembly. It states that the failure of the last General Assembly to nuke any appropria tion for the purposes of the Board has ren dered it impossible for them to perform the various duties assigned them, and that the Board does not a>k compensation for any of its members except for the permanent sec retary, whose whole time is necessarily con sumed by the duties of his office. The report sets forth that there has been no general sanitary system heretofore in Virginia, with the exception of the Boards of Health in the cities and sonic or the larger towns. The legislation of a general charac ter in relation to the public health has been mainly limited to the power conferred upon courts and town councils to establish hos pitals for the reception of persons affected with small-pox or other contagious or infec tious diseases; the subject of quarantine; the provision for the appointment of a vac cine agent ; the requirement that when a mill is proposed to be erected upon any wa ter-course a jury shall inquire, among other things, into the probable effect upon the health of the neighborhood ; und the impo sition ot a penalty for the sale of unwhole some provisions and adulterated food, drink, or medicines. The self-nullifying act cre ating the State Board was the* first attempt to establish such a body to " take cognizance of the interests of health and life'' in the State at large. This remarkable anomaly therefore pre sents itself: that while some two thousand physicians in the State earn a livelihood by the cure of disease, receiving for their ser vices at least $2,0J0.000 annually?suppos ing their professional incomes to average no more than $1,009?(here is not a dollar ex pended for the pretention of disease among our population of 1/2*25,000, and not an indi vidual in the State ichose professional in terest it is to labor for such prevention. it is remarked u that at a very mode rate rate of mortality?lower than a full re gistration of deaths would justify?at least 20,000 persons dieanuually in Virginia. It! is true that the returns of mortality accom panying the United states census of 1870 give an aggregate for this .Slate of only 15,183; but when we reflect that these returns are not the result of un actual registration of deaths, hut were made up l'rom the recollec tions of heads of families as to the deaths which occurred during the twelve months preceding the census, and when we bear in mind the incompetence of many of those who were charged with the collection of the census returns, and the very imper fect maimer in which their work was often done, we arc obliged to admit that the sta tistics of mortality thus obtained are alto gether unreliable. The worthless registra tion of our own State affords no means of correcting their errors; hut if we take as a standard of comparison the death-rate in other countries, where a faithful system ot registration is maintained, and in which the conditions affecting health and life are at lea>t ns favorable as it: Virginia, we may rea sonably conclude that 20,but) is a low esti mate for the number of deaths annually o ? curring in this State. "VVo artfalso justified by the daily experience of physicians in a*suming that for every death there arc at ku>t twenty-Jive eases o?"sickness sufficiently serious to call lor medir.il treatment. Wcl thus o.btaio an aggregate of 500,000 eases.of sickness annually, giving employment and support to a nuuieious corps Of physicians at a heavy expense, to the people. Yet the State practically disregards this wide-spread visitation of disease and this yearly harvest of death, and with strange indifference refuses to make any expenditure for the investigation of the causes of disease with a view of its prevention, and puts forth no serious effort to save the lives of its eiti zons." After elaborate and interesting remarks on the cost of disease and death to tin? commu nity, and the practical results of sanitary improvements, t!ie report sets forth at length the necessity of a sanitary organization with a central board, and concludes as follows: " It remains with the General Assembly to decide whether vitulity and permnuene'e shall be given to the State Hoard of Health by such reasonable provision for its support as is indispensable' to its efficiency, or whether this first attempt, at sanitary im provement in our State shall prove abortive. In the former event, it must still be apparent that tb<^enterprise cannot be intelligently conducted without the help of a reliable system of registration. "Vital statistics must furnish the data to j guide the sanitarian?must inform him where and in what degree the evils exist which require to be remediedfand they will iu due time express the results of bis efforts by the variations iu the death-rate which they will reveal. This Board, therefore, If the General Assembly sball judge fit to con tinue its existence on u proper footing, will ?regard it as a primary duty to urge a revision of the existing laws relating to the registra tion of births, marriages, and deaths, which experienoe has shown to be well-nigh bar ren of useful practical results."
