St. Mary's Orphan Asylum, Annual Report for the Year 1868.

The Board of Managers of St. Mary's Orphan Asylum are again able, through the good Providence of God, to report another favorable year in the history of the Institution under their care. There have been from 190 to 200 Children in the Asylum during the year, sometimes a few more and sometimes a few less, but notwithstanding this large number there has been remarkable freedom from sickness. An industrial department has been established during the year, in which the larger girls are learning some branches of industry. Some of the work has been sold, and the amount received for it credited in the account, besides the work done for the house. Next year it will no doubt be larger. The older boys render much assistance on the farm. The farm produced during the past year, 480 bushels of Potatoes; 350 bushels of Corn ; 100 bushels of Turnips, 85 bushels of Oats; 14 Tons of Hay, besides milk, eggs and butter, the total value of which may be set down as about $2500. Alterations in the building are absolutely required. They could not be made during the past year, owing to want of funds. It is earnestly hoped that the success of the fair this year will be so great as to enable them, to be made.
