4 Annual Report of the Agricultural Lexington and the county of Fayette were accepted by the General Assembly. By the act of incorporation, and the amendment thereto, constituting the charter of the Agricul- tural 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 Normal Department, for which provision is also made, is intended to aid in building.up the Common School System by furnish ing 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 will allow, will, it is hoped, in the no distant future, do a great work in advancing the educational interest of Kentucky. Being entirely undenominational in its character, it will appeal with confidence to people of all creeds and of no creed, and will endeavor, in strict conformity with the requirementsof its or- ganic law, to afford equal advantages to all, ex- clusive advantages to none. The liberaliqy of the Oom onwealth in supplementing the inadequate annual income arising from the proceeds of the land scrip invested in State bonds will, it is be- lieved, enable the Trustees to begin and carry on, upon a scale com ensurate 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.
