A (ieoeral Meeting of the Subscribers to this undertaking look place yesterday, at the Crown and Anchor Tavurn. Strand. Shortly after one o'clock the Right Hon. Lord Viaroonl Auckland entered the room, followed by H. Iir�ugliamv Esq , M.P., John Smith, Esq. M P., A. Smith, Esq. M-P., Joseph Home, Esq. M.P., and several other Members of the Council, appointed hv the subscribers. Lord ArckLOD having been called to tbe Chair, returned thanks for the honour conferred upon him. The object for whic'i the 3uhsrriber8 bad assembled, was simply that statements should be submitted to them of what had been done by the Council, of the receipts and disbursements on account of Ihe Institution, and of the proceedings in contemplation, in order that, before so important a step af .lie commencement of ihe building should be taken, the subscribers should be made acquainted with all Ihe particulars. The Honorary Secretary (the Rev. F, A. Cox) then read the minutes of the proceedings of the last general meeting of the subscribers, which were confirmed. Dr. Cox mxt read the following Report of the Council. " ihe Council constituted by the deed of settlement, bearing date the I Ilh day of February last, have- proceeded incessaully in piomotinr the gTeat object entrusted to their care, and have convened this first General Meeting of the proprietary according to the provisions of that deed, for the purpose of submitting to tliem the presentstute of the funds of tbe Institution. The proceedings hitherto taken by the Council, and th�d>rther measures they would recommend to the Proprietors for their sanction, n ith a view lo the gradual completion of tha propossd esta-hlisbuient. " To this Report is subjoined, by way of appendix, the half-yearly balance sheet of the several sums received and paid, on account of the Institution, up to the 11th of August last, as checked and verified by the auditors. " Subsequently to such account, further subscriptions have been received, whereby the number of shares on which ihe rle-|io8it hua been paid, has been increased to 1,157; in addition to winch, upv�ards of 143 shares have been subscribed by individuals of ihe greatest respectability, on which, owing to various causes, the pay ment of the deposit Iiub been drlayed, but may be considered perfectly secure. The total number of shares a lion. By the Deed (whether wisely S say), the project coald not be begun, carrted in&b until the vAole 1,500 share* should have been absolutely sao-scribed for-(Go on)-tb^naare.theConBcil coald not, and much time would of necessity be lost waiting until tbe whole number should be made up. It was true, that it waa not necessary fur the outfit of, and to start with, the laaartotion, that the whole sum of 150,000*. should be subscribed ; for it wootd be sees by the Report, that little morethan lOCOOOL would b* required to complete the centre building, except tbe colonnade and portico, for the forming and constructing oflibrary, lectare-wjonw, &c, lo enable the Institution to go-on for two or Urea year*. Bat it disappear to the Council, that as Ihe sanction pf the subscribers was aecessaiy to the step which this state or things otortausly called for (because the Council did not *rt*h to hsv* it sakt, that they had coiurrrenced. operatkuis, by Sab verting 8 fundamental part of their constitution), it, therefore, became neceatan, tan} the mh.wri.rf5- ^- hole 1,560 snare* fcbOulH be filled, and 1 - � - - . - &i*k"fiSSSJS? ifly atwrl' ��pJeted.

The engagement entered into by these Proprietors, constitutes No. Sin the Appendix. " The Capital required having been thus provided for (exclusive of H.",j7. contributed by way of donation), the Council w�� enabled to proceed in the exercueof the powers confided tothein ; b'lt the only material step taken by them has been, a selection from among the sevorHl plans submitted to them of that designed by Mr. Wilkms-a sel tction in which their own judgment coincided with that of almost every Proprietor who inspected Ihe drawings ; and the Council are enabled to state, thai tbe work, in ii� execution, will have the benefit of Mr. Gaudy's supcrin-lendance, in conjunction with Mr. W'ilkins. " The wish of ihe Council will appear to have been rather lo select h ;;reat design suited to the wants, tbe wealth, and th� magnitude of the population for whom the Institution is Intended, than one commensurate with its present means ; but as they were determined lo take 110 step in this important part of their trust, without first ascertaining and Hunting the utmost extent of expense to w Inch any contract or engagement might lead them, ihey advertised for lenders, by public competition, for the execution of the works. The lowest offer was made by Mesars. Lee, who engaged to complete the buildings for the suui of 107,000/., exclusive of stone ornaments, to tbe amount of about 3,000/. " Thi� auiji e\c�eds by 20.000/. the estimate made by Mr. Wil-kins, whu, id explanation, has staled that his specification in the (|ii.ility or auioiiut of the materials, goes farbeyoud the usual j course oi building, bis main object having been lo give durability and beauty lo a building which would find but few in this country to vie with it.

It is believed, prove perfectly a leq.late. " Three iti.'iths may probably elapse before these r reparations ,n be cmpletrn, after winch the Council propose an address to his Roval Highness Ihe Duke of Sussex, requesting huu to Uy tin- tirst stone of the building, his Royal Highness having been '� ed.Hr* Hon. and eteellent Ffl^.m John Smith, and Mr J.L.Gcddsjnid, at once said," we wiD^ti&MconR responsible for 50 shares each." (Uod cheeriac.) HtstVoped he might be permitted to say, thai another excel lent friend, who, he lamented was not then present-he meant Mr. Morrison (of the City)-bad, upon the first inlamaiion of tbe awtetsiiy. fori the *tei>, declared himself responsible for 60 more share*. (Cheer*.) It was agreed that these individuals should not be held to nave subscribed for more than fifty shares each; and that the ten shares, which eaeh had originally oilacribed for, should be deemed part of the subscription for fifty shares. Thus, enchnn-dred and fifty of the shares deficient were sabscribed for-other Gentlemen subscribed for additional shares-so that 190 of the 200 required had been taken in that wav. To this mode of com pletiug the required aomser of shares, the sanction of that general meeting was deemed necessary. [After a warns nulugium on the Oentleman alluded to. Mr. Brougham proceeded.] The sanction of the subscribers obtained, the undertaking might be proceeded with, and in two or three month*, all the preliminary strps might be taken. When thus the commencement should have actually taken place, that in Aire* months tbe tooodatino should have been actually laid, and that, in two or three months more, when the walls should begin to appear above the paling, the Council reckoned, not only upon tbe approbation, but. upon the cordial and "warm exertions of the rubscribera, among their respective friends, to complete, not merely tbe 1,500 (bare*, in the first instance contemplated, but 3,000 shares, the maxmirm, to which tbe number would ever be carried. The consequence is ould be, that not only would the operations thus reach their originally intended extent, but (and he trusted thateouid shortly be done) not only would the 200 supplemental shares, to. which he had risen to refer, be redeemed, but so far the number of shares would be increased, as to render it most doubtful whether or not the full payment of W0 p*/ cenL upon each share would be required. (Applause.) The Resolution was agreed to unanimously. A Subscriber then moved, that the capital of tbe Tnsiitulian be 150,000/., with liberty to the Council to increase it to300,000/. The Resolution was carried unanimously. Mr. K. Tavlor (a Subscriber; expressed his satisfaction at the Report and statements the Meeting had heard, and I moved, that the Report of the Council be approved and confirmed, 'and that the Council be authorised lo commence the building forthn ith. A Subscriber here remarked upon that passage in the Report which stated the contemplated cost of the building at 87,0001.. and that none of the estimates were under 107,000/. (being 20,000 more). He wished therefore to know what sum the Council proposed expending in the first instance. Ixird ArcKi.Asw could only speak from recollection, but l.� believed from 36.000/. to 40,000/. had been calculated as sufficient to place tbe building in such a slate as to enable the great objects of the Institution to be proceeded with. (Applause.) The Resolution was then agreed to. Air. HltMf., M.P. here stated, that, by advertising for tenders, aud using other precautions, Ihe Council had prevented the possibility of the outlay exceeding (or indeed amounting), in any case, to the estimate. He thought it necessary to state this, because he knew that a number of individuals bad declined becoming subscribers, under the idea that the funds would not.be adequate to the expense of the proposed undertaking. Mr. Brougham said, he might perhaps be permitted to add, in explanation (in case it should pa forth), that nothing should impede the opening of the classes the moment the building would admit of it. The Council thought that, ut least, twelve of tho most important classes might be opened for actual operation when that portion of thebuildicgreferred to should be completed.. He underrated ihe number of classes, he was sure, for eighteen would be found nearer to the mark. The Rev. Mr. Shkphkrd asked, in case there should not be room to accommodate a student for each subscriber, how was (he selection lo be made .' Mr. Brougham said, one criterion, by which to regulate the admissions, would be (and a very advantageous, and a very fair one too), that, where competition should arise, tire priority would belong to tbe party who should have first signed the deed. Mr. Titos. Campuell said, that (as he had anUcuwted), although all that was done might not have the stamp of perfection upon it, yet that all had been dene by the Council to the best of their judgments. A great deal bad been done, and in a manner too which warranted hit congratulation of the subscribers. If no more had been done than to fix upon a locality, to fxquire a freehold of such extent in London, he should feel it of sufiicirnt importance to congratulate the subscribers upon it. That had been achieved, aud, at a comparatively small cost-nearly eight acres of ground had been purchased in a most admirable situation. (Applause.) But that was not all. The undertaking might be deemed to be fairly afloat. He begged Jearo bow to refer to a different circumstance-the deed of settlement bad not. yet been signed by a majority of the subscribers. (Hear.) lie had notcome prepared with legalities to urge upon the subject,and therefore what he should say would be more in the way of entreaty than of argument He shoo Id implore of the gentlemen, who had not yet complied with that necessary formality, to join at once iu responsibility with these who bad so spiritedly coma forward. Surrounded, as lie was, by British gentlemen, who were actusAed by nobler motives than base lucre, he was can. unced arguments were unnecessary to induce them to romplelo that which lh-y had so honourably begun. I Hear, hear.) H* was the more strongly convinced of that, because, like Henry, he conld say of those around him - " There is not one of you so mean and base. That hath not noble lustre in his eyes."-(Applause.) Mr. Broicium said, his worthy friend's question had sug-gfsted another point. Legally, an I strictly speaking, no snb-s opeiation of the subscribers. I n ariditi. m tu about 1, laO shares, on w htch the required ,1,,. .|is had been u.a.le, there were 120 more subscribed for, on wh , a the depo'its had not been paid, but on wh.cli, there could be no d. bt v.hatever that the deposits w.inll be paid. The i; 1 b id arisen out of various accidental circumstances-Some d to. p rtics had gone abroad, others hid lett town without having go eii direutiocs to make the payments required it Ho- ir bankers, but who would, un. oibtedly, cause bos.- payment] to ba mxde immediately upon their ar-nv.i! in London. He felt competent to hold out t lat expectation, by knowing that of the latter class, was hit Hon. and excellent Friend, W. J. Denison, Esq. M.P. tluc wh. 111 it was hardly necessary for him lo say the Bank itself wk, not u.urc secure. ,A laugh and applause.} Those two sums iiavi concurred in his Hon. Friend's statement and added, that when any class. Chemistry for example, should be so much crowded as lo cause au overflow, the number of students would be divided, and a second lecture given lo, and an examination had of, the second half/for it was determined that there should be no lecture without an examination). No want of accommodation could, therefore, be contemplated. After a suitable eulogium on the Solicitor to the institution, by Mr. B., the thanks of the Meeting were voted tojthat Gentleman. Oa the motion of a Subscriber, K was resc.lvad, that the Report should be printed, and a copy sent to each subscriber. The Rev. Mr. Shfphfrd moved the thanks of Ihe Meeting to W'.Tooke, Esq. (a Member of the Council), for his zeal and exertions on behalf of the Institution. The Resolution passed unanimously. Mr. Brocghav( moved the thanks of tha meeting to Ibe Rev. E. A. Cox, for his zealous co operation with the Council, and b.s rrrj proper discharge of his funi tions as Honorary Secretary , The Resolution was unanimously agreed to. In reply to a question put by a subscriber, the Noble Chaicrian said, the building would, be hoped, be ready for tbe reception of students in about IS months. It was hardly possible tha.t U could be sooner. Air. Broi'Oham said it was not derirable that it should bo ready it an earlier period. No evil could arise from the delay of lifieen or eighteen months, as a still more important duty, and one which would require much time, remained to be performed -he meant the selection of Professors- Hear)-and the preparation of those learned persons lor the discharge of their respective duties. There was, therefore, nothing to regret in the circuin-stanre that the building would not be completed before the lapse of fifteen or eighteen months. A Subscriber said, so far from being dissatisfied at the delaj mentioned, he felt surprised at its being limited to so short * period. 2 Mr. A. Smith, M.P. said, there was not a shadow of doubt that the University would afford suliicietit accommodation for 1,500 students in the first instance, and in case the number should b� extended from 1,500 to 2,000, or 3,000, care would be taken to extend Ihe means of accommodation in proportion. Mr. Broioiiam -We pledge ourselves to that undertaking. Mr. Hum: said, that in the interim the Clonal would prepare themselves to receive doe-ations of books, so that when the University should be ready for opening, he hoped it would possess an excellent library. The thanks of the Meeting were then voted to the Nobla Chairman, and to the Council. Lord Arcai.and, and Mr. J. Smith (on behalf of the Council) returned thanks, after which the Meeting separated. I p.vards of 100 subscribers were present. The prsceedings appeared to give general satisfaction. AshtoN-UNDER-Lynb.-a ludicrous instance of modern fanaticism occurred hereon Wednesday. la conformity with tbe ith chapter of Ezekiei, one ofthe Snutheotariaas (a son of St. Cri>pin)et this place, cut off bis beard with a razor, and ihen adjourned to the most central part of the town, and there performed the operation of burniog, cutting, and scattering to the wind his monstrous bushy beard, after which with % yoii-e, opt the most audible, he read the before-mentiooed chapter, and exhorted hi* audience 10 read attentively that, and the 3d chapter of Isaiah. The novelty of this circumstance occasioned some Interest, and it is proper to observe that his face appeared nu.cn ruproved by the curtailment of a nasty beard of two years' ,ruwth.-Jtfavr/rVf�W Uoald.
