4 STATE COLLEGE OF KENTUCKY. » within the limits of tl1e city, Rlld thirty thousand dollars _ in city bonds for the erection of buildings. This offer the , county of Fayette supplemented by twenty thousand dol- lars in county bonds, to be used either for the erection of buildings or for the purchase of land. The offers of the ‘ city of Lexington and of the county of Fayette were ac— M cepted by the General Assembly. By the act of incorporation, a11d the amendments thereto, constituting the charter of the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky, liberal provision is made , for educating, free of tuition, the energetic young men of the Commonwealth whose means are limited. The Nor- i mal Department, for which provision is also made, is in- l tended to aid in building up the Common School system by furnishing properly qualified teachers. This College, with the associated departments which will, from time to time, be opened as the means placed at the disposal of the Trustees allow, will, it is hoped, in the no distant fu- ture do a great work in advancing the educational inter- ( _ ests of Kentucky. Being entirely undenominational in ” . its character, it will appeal with confidence to the people of all creeds and of no creed, and will endeavor, in strict conformity with the requirements of its organic law, to afford equal advantages to all, exclusive advantages to none. The liberality of the Commonwealth in supple- menting the inadequate annual income arising from the proceeds of the land—scrip invested i11 State bonds, will, , it is believed, enable the Trustees to begin and carry on, upon a scale commensurate with the wants of our people, the operations of the institution whose management and ‘ · oversight have been committed to them by the General ' Assembly of Kentucky. 1 r r ¤¤¤n@; it-
