5. The College continues to maintain its reputation, and to be resorted to by the children of the higher and richer portion of the inhabitants of this city and its vicinity.
6. The annual general examination of the junior school department was conducted by Professor J. Sutcliffe and Mr. R. Jones, the head master, and tabular statements of the result of the examination were forwarded, of which the following is a brief analysis :
“ The first class consists of 34 pupils. Their attendance during the past session has, on the whole, been fair, although there have been nine instances of absence extending from 40 to 75 days. The return by the master of the class of their progress speaks favorably, that of 16 being pronounced 'good' and 10 very good,' generally very high marks have been obtained by them at the examination. Taking 60 as the standard of complete proficiency in all the subjects of study, the examiners have awarded from 40 to 52 marks to 19 pupils : only one of them receiving less than half.
“ The second class section A, under the charge of Babu Isser Chunder Saba, consists of 34 pupils. Their attendance. comparatively speaking, has been good : their progress generally fair. They have passed a highly creditable examination : 11 students obtain from 50 to 57 marks out of 60: 18 from 40 to 49, and only two get 28.
“ Section B, of the second class, contains 31 boys. One of them has been absent 100 days; another 95; another 78 days; the rest from 5 to 57 days. Their progress has been generally · fair.' They have passed a good examination.
* Section C, of this class, consisting of 37 pupils, exhibits a fair attendance. Two pupils who had been absent 123 and 188 days respectively, did not make
their appearance at the examinations—which the rest passed creditably. The highest number attained is 57, the average is 45.
"Of sections A and B, of the third class, consisting of 35 and 38 pupils respectively, the first has been more regular in attendance than the second. The results of their examinations are satisfactory.
“ The same remarks, with respect to progress, apply to the third section, which contains 34 boys. There is nothing remarkable regarding their attendance during the past year.
“ The fourth class is divided into four sections, which contain 31, 26, 22 and 24 pupils respectively. The first two sections have obtained fair numbers at the examination; the last two fall considerably below the standard assumed for complete proficiency. The absenteeism is general and very considerable.
“The examiners recommended that prizes be awarded to the following pupils whose names are mentioned along with the classes to which they are attached :
3rd Class, Section A.,
3rd Class, Section B.,
3rd Class, Section C.,
Jogesh Chunder Mitter, Arithmetic.

4th Class, Section B.,
4th Class, Section C.,

7. The Vernacular examination of the junior school was conducted by Pundits Petumber Surma and Gourichurn Surma, and the result of the examination is embodied in the tabular statements referred to in the preceding paragraph.
8. There was no separate examination held this year for the purpose of ascertaining the qualifications of the candidates for junior scholarships previous to their being selected for that ordeal, but the whole of the first class of the senior school department were allowed to compete for junior scholarships, and the remaining two classes of that department were subjected to a general examination by Messrs. Lodge, Jones, Sutcliffe and Babu Ramchunder Mitter in written questions previously prepared.
The tabular statements submitted by them contain the following particulars deserving of notice :
“ The second class, consisting of 30 pupils, 7 of whom are marked very good,' 11 'good,' have been pretty regular in attendance. Out
