SOLICITORS.

Messrs. WATSON & Sons, Bouverie-street, Fleet-street. This Company is founded on purely mutual principles : there is no proprietary under any form to absorb any portion of the profits, which all belong to the Members at large, by whom also the Directors are appointed. During the year 1850 the following new Policies were executed, in addition to the old business :

This Company is adapted to meet all the varied wants of its Members. By its Life Policies provision may be made for the evils anticipated from the death of the party assured. By its Deferred Annuities a certain income may be secured when advancing years reuder labour less remunerative. By its Immediate Annuities a sum of money which now yields an inadequate support in the shape of interest may be rendered much more productive; while the Investment Assurances enable every one to make provision for the time of sickness or other calamity requiring pecuniary aid. The employment of the funds in advances to the Members places within their reach the means of enlarging their trade capital, or of making advantageous purchases as opportunities offer.

As there are many important towns in which Agents are not yet appointed, the Directors are open to receive applications from respectable persons in such places. If not already Members of the Company, they will be required to become so by effecting a life assurance,

Upon receipt of two postage stamps the Prospectus, with Forms, &c., will be forwarded, in which some important and novel applications of Life Assurance will be found.

This Society (although entirely distinct in its funds and management) is conducted at the same Offices, and on the same principles, as the British EMPIRE METCAL LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY.

It is designed to extend to Fire Assurance the Mutual principle which has been found so successful in its application to Life Assurance.

During the year 1850, 1680 new Policies have been issued, assuring property to the amount of £656,423. A large amount of business was obtained in former years.

The Profits are divided every three years.
Less than One-Third of the Premiums bave paid all the Losses.
Assurances can be effected daily at the Chief Offices, or at any of the Agents of the Society throughout the Empire.
