National Club, 1, Whitehall-gardens.—Every member is understood to concur in the following fundamental principles. 1. That it is essential to the due administration of public affairs throughout the empire, that the Protestant principles of the Constitution, the Protestant reformed faith, as established by law, shall be maintained. 2. That the authority of Holy Scripture ought to be recognised in any system of national education, as the only infallible standard of faith and morals. 3. That it is the duty of all persons to endeavour to improve the moral and social condition of the people. Entrance fee for laymen, £10 10s. subscription, £8 8s. Entrance fee for clergymen, £5 5s. subscription £7 7s.

National Gallery, Trafalgar-square.—It was not until the year 1824 that any national gallery of pictures was founded in England. The purchase of the collection of the late Mr. J. Angerstein formed the nucleus of the present collection. A grant of £60,000 was originally voted by Parliament to provide for the acquisition of the pictures and the incidental expenses. The collection was first exhibited in Mr. Angerstein’s house in Pall Mall. Many presents and bequests of more or less value were made during the next few years; and the number of pictures in the gallery, including the works of the British school was in 1878 (on the authority of the official catalogue), one thousand and forty-six. The present building was opened to the public in 1838, altered and enlarged by Sir James Pennethorne in 1860 and 1869. Five rooms were added on the departure of the Royal Academy of Arts. In 1876 a new wing, designed by E. M. Barry, R.A., was built. Sightseers should not judge of the building by its exteriors from which point of view it is one of the most unfortunate specimens of English architecture. The interior however, is well adapted for its purpose, the rooms being well. proportioned, carefully ventilated and admirably lit. It is impossible to attempt anything like a description of the many important works contained in the gallery. The authorised catalogues, which may be obtained on the spot, are both historically and descriptively exhaustive. The gallery is open to the public on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, during the following months: November, December, January, from 10 am. until dusk; February, March,  April, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.; May, June, July, August, from 10 am, until 6 p.m.; September, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. The gallery is open to students on Thursdays and Fridays during the above-mentioned months from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. In the month of October the gallery is closed.

Newgate,—A solid and gloomy building of granite, constructed, after the old style, with a single eye to the security of its prisoners. Improvements have been made of late in its sanitary arrangements, but modem requirements can never be satisfied in the present building. The present structure dates from 1782, having been attacked and partly burned by the Gordon rioters in 1780, whilst still incomplete. Shortly after, the execution of capital sentences, which till then had taken place at or in the immediate neighbourhood of Tyburn-gate, about fifty yards West of the present Marble Arch (see TYBURN-GATE), was transferred to the open space in front of Newgate, the scaffold being erected before the low door, called the Debtors-door, which may still be seen. Since 1868 executions have taken place within the prison. Only the officials and the representatives of the press are admitted, unless by special order. The prison itself may be seen by order from the House Secretary, the Lord Mayor, or one of the sheriffs. The nearest station is Holborn-viaduct, in direct communication with the L. C. & D. and the Metropolitan systems. All omnibuses between the Bank and the \Vest-end pass; those for the Holborn routes alone the north side of the prison itself, those via Fleet-street from Ludgate-hill at the south end of the Old Bailey, about 100 yards off. Blackfriars and St. Paul’s piers are each something less than half a mile distant.

Newgate-street — Few streets have been more improved of late years than this, which fifteen years ago was little better than a lane running by the side of the dreary wall of Newgate Prison, and the greasy neighbourhood of Newgate Market. The impediment to traffic was, however, so great that it was determined to widen the street, and the whole of the north side has been thrown back some 20 feet. At the point where Holborn-viaduct ends and Newgate-street begins, the street called Old Bailey runs in front of Newgate Prison. Giltspur-street, which is a continuation of the Old Bailey leads to Smithfield Market. On the north of Newgate-street is Christ’s Hospital, or the Blue-coat School; the play-ground of the school facing the street. Many propositions have been made for the removal of the school into the country, as the land upon which it stands is of great value, and no doubt ere long the change will be brought about. On the northern corner, where Newgate-street runs into the end of St. Martins-le-Grand, is the new Post-office, an imposing pile of buildings. To the south of Newgate-street, behind Newgate Prison, was Newgate Market, which has for some years been abolished, although many butchers still retain shops in their old premises.

New Granada.—(See COLOMBIA)

New Jerusalem Places of Worship.—The following information has been kindly furnished by the respective ministers, the “terms of membership” being given in their own words:
ARGYLE-SQUARE CHAPEL, King’s-cross, W.C— Terms of Membership: Any person, of twenty years old and upwards, duly elected by the society, be. comes a member on subscribing the following declaration of faith:“That God is one in whom there is a Divine Trinity, and that He is the Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ. That a saving faith is to believe in Him. That evil actions ought not to be done, because they are of the devil, and from the devil. That good actions ought to be done, because they are of God and from God, and that they should be done by a man as of himself; nevertheless, under this belief, that they are from the Lord, operating with him and by him.” Seat rents, 3s., 4s, 5s., or 6s. per quarter. Service on Sunday at 11 am. and 7p.m.; holy communion, first Sunday in each month. Particulars of other meetings are published in the Argyle-square Manual.
NEW JERUSALEM CHURCH, Camden-road— Terms of Membership: “Election and subsequent signing of the creed of the New Jerusalem Church, as contained in the theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.” Seat rents, 5s.a quarter.

New River. — Was started in 1608 by Sir Hugh Myddleton. He was not Sir Hugh then, but a simple “citizen and goldsmith,” the baronetcy being a subsequent reward for the success of his great undertaking, which up to this day furnishes more than one-fourth the water supply of the metropolis. The New River is carried from the springs and chalk wells some twenty miles from London to the great reservoirs, 40 acres in extent, at Stoke Newington; thence, after time to clear itself, to the New River Head by Sadler’s Wells Theatre—which in the old times had a special connection therewith, and could turn its stage into a huge tank for nautical exhibitions—and thence direct to the lower portions of the city or to the high-level reservoirs in Claremont-square and at Highgate.

New Road, or, as it now called, the Marylebone and Euston roads, forms, with its continuation, the City-road, the northern alternative route from the City to the West-end. It starts from Moorgate-street by way of Finsbury-square, and debouches into the Edgware-road about half a mile from the Marble Arch. It has no very special feature, except perhaps the semi-surburban character of most of its houses, each with its little patch of garden in front, and its little cluster of tombstone-makers about Tottenham-court-road. The Metropolitan Railway runs under it for nearly its whole length.

Notting Hill is a comparatively cheap district, lying between Kensal-green Cemetery and Campden-hill, and continuing the town westward from Bayswater to Shepherds Bush. Here a fair-sized house may be had from about £75 to £120, according to whether it approaches the western or eastern verge of the district. Stations: Notting Hill, Latimer-road, on the City and Hammersmith; Uxbridge-road on the West London; and Notting Hill-gate on the Metropolitan Line, A good deal of confusion arises from the similarity of name between the two stations of Notting Hill and Notting Hill-gate, which are more than a mile apart on two different lines; the former (City & Hammersmith) being at the north end of Ladbroke-grove, and the latter (Metrop.) nearly half a mile to the east of its south end in Notting Hill High-st. Omnibus routes: Westbourne-grove and Uxbridge-road.

Nurses. —
ADDLESTONE NURSING INSTITUTION, Alexandra-road, Addlestone, Surrey near the station. — Six nurses. Terms from £1 1s. to £2 2s. per week, according to the cases. Infectious and insane cases always  £2 2s. Travelling expenses to and from,the institution, extra.
AESCULAPIAN MEDICAL & SURGICAL HOME, 10, Bentinck-street, Cavendish - square. — Number of nurses: indoor, 5; out-door, 25. Terms: resident patients from £4  4s. per week, with their own medical man (which the director prefers). This institution affords the most suitable accommodation to ladies and gentlemen requiring medical and surgical care, combined with the advantages of trained nurses, or trained gentlewomen to act as nurse and amanuensis, appropriate apartments, &
ASSOCIATION OF TRAINED NURSES AND MALE ATTENDANTS, 37, Davies-st, Berkeley square, W.—No fixed number of nurses. Terms vary according to nurse and case. Monthly nurses are never sent to infectious or contagious disorders. Nurses in this association have their own homes, and the bulk of their earnings; many of them are widows.
HOME AND SISTERHOOD OF ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST. Branch Home: Maternity Home and Training School, 7, Ashburnham-road, Chelsea, S.W. Superintendent, the Lady Superior of St. John’s Home.—Twelve beds. Admission free. Applicants must be poor, respectable, and married women. This home was opened in August, 1877, for the reception of poor married women, and for the training of monthly nurses, It is under the charge of a qualified sister and nurses of St. John’s Home. Monthly nurses supplied.
INSTITUTION FOR NURSES FOR NERVOUS AND MENTAL DISORDERS, PARALYSIS, AND EPILEPSY, 1, King-street, Park-st, Grosvenor. square W. —Number of nurses unlimited. Terms: £1 2s., £1 6s., £1 11s, per week. Payment to be every six weeks, when the fifth week is expired. No nurses to be sent home on Sunday; if sent out Sunday, their week ends Saturday. Founded on the rules of Mrs. Fry’s Nursing Sisters’ Institution. Ten per cent. on the payments is devoted to superannuation fund. Persons desirous of being engaged as nurses must be Protestants, and willing to attend the Church of England services. The strictest enquiries will be made as to their previous moral character, and no one need apply who is unwilling to undertake the menial offices that may be required in a sick room, Candidates are received on probation or for training for not less a period than three months; they pay an entrance fee of £2, which is returned to them if they engage with the institution, but not otherwise. Probationers, after three months’ training in an asylum, or, if already trained for mental nursing, a trial in the home and at cases, are engaged as nurses. They then promise to serve for three years, which engagement they cannot break, except on giving three months’ notice to the superintendent, and on paying a fine of £6. This engagement is renewable, where the testimonials and conduct have been satisfactory, every three years for a like period. They are allowed an annual stipend of £20, which is raised to £23 after three years’ service; £26 after six years’ service; ~£29 after nine years’ service; supplied with an appropriate dress, and maintained in the home provided for them during the intervals of their engagement. At the end of twelve years they have a superannuation pension of £20 a year when the fund allows. The nurses are engaged from the age of twenty-five; if younger, a reduction is made in their salaries. Families sending for nurses are required, before the expiration of six weeks, when the payment becomes due, to renew their application for the nurse to continue in attendance. The payments for nurses are to be sent every six weeks to the superintendent; but strangers are expected to apply at the end of the first month for permission for a nurse to remain, and to send their six weeks’ payment if they wish her to do so. The nurses are sent out at regular charges, which cannot be lowered. As the institution is supported by the nurses’ earnings, it would be impossible to do charity at their expense. Persons employing nurses are at liberty to exchange them, if unsuited in any way to the case of the invalid; but attendants are not allowed to leave their charge without permission. When a nurse is discharged from an infectious case, fifteen shillings must be paid to her for lodging, as for the safety of others she cannot return home until danger of infection has ceased. The nurses are not permitted to receive mourning or presents (except a book as a trifling remembrance), directly or indirectly, from the patients or families on whom they attend; those who wish to express gratitude for benefits received can best do so by contributing to the superannuation fund. The nurses of this institution are only engaged to attend on ladies.
LONDON ASSOCIATION OF NURSES, 62, New Bond-street; branch office, 86, Kennington-park. road. — Number of nurses, 200. Terms, from £1 1s. to £4 4s. per week. Medical nurses, from £1 1s. to £2 2s. per week; mental nurses, from £1 1s. to £3 3s. per week; monthly nurses, prom £4 4s. to £21 per month; surgical nurses and male attendants, from £2 2s. to £3 3s. per week ; fever and smallpox nurses, £1 1s. to £3 3s. per week. In this association the nurses are not paid by salary, but receive their earnings. Firth’s Home Hospitals for the Well-to-do—In connection with the Association of Nurses there are “Home Hospitals,” where patients can be received under the care of their own physicians, each patient being provided with a separate room. Hospital No. 1: For medical and surgical non-infectious cases. Hospital No. 2: A country house, with large garden, for convalescents. Hospital No. 3 : For the reception of convalescents from infectious diseases. Hospital No. 4 : For the cure of inebriates. Terms, from £4 4s. to £12 12s. per week, according to nursing and accommodation required. Address of hospitals given only to patients or their friends. Male attendants and medical rubbers always in readiness. There is no danger of infection being carried by nurses from this association, as those nurses whose specialty it is to attend infectious cases are never in contact with those who do not. Nurses are supplied to the poor as well as to the rich. The advantages to nurses of this association are, that through it they hear of more regular work than if not thus registered, and that the earnings belong to themselves. The terms upon which the hospital-trained nurses work vary;  some are willing to accept 15s. per week, others are paid from £1 1s. to £4 4s. per week. Wet nurses are carefully selected, and super vision is given to the persons and places where their infants are placed. Any form of application, per letter or telegram, stating the class of nurse required, will receive attention, day or night.
METROPOLITAN AND NATIONAL NURSING ASSOCIATION FOR PROVIDING TRAINED NURSES FOR THE SICK POOR, the Superintendent-General, 23, Bloomsbury-square.—Terms, gratis. Where artisans or others are able, they contribute small sums weekly. No cases are nursed where the patient is able to board and pay a resident nurse. There is no rule with respect to creed. Any lady can attend any church or chapel that she pleases. Ladies when trained live in a district home under a Lady superintendent trained like themselves. These homes are arranged and furnished suitably for gentlewomen, and ladies are at liberty—when the work for the day is done—to dine out, or to spend the evening as they please. Ladies are required to dress for the evening, as they would naturally do in their own homes. The following are the principal regulations: Nurse candidates will be selected by the sup.gen., and received into the central home of the association, where they will reside for a month on trial. If considered suitable, the candidate will pass on from the central home to the hospital training school where they will be admitted as a probationer, and receive a year’s training. On the satisfactory completion of the hospital course the probationer will return to the central home for further training in the practice of district nursing, combined with technical class instruction, for a period of three months, and her training will usually then be considered to be completed. The probationer who has completed her training to the satisfaction of the committee will be placed upon the staff of the association. Nurses so trained will be expected to continue in the service of the association for a period of three years, dating from the completion of their training, and if they wish to terminate their engagement, either at the end of that period or subsequently, will be required to give three months notice in writing. The nurse’s engagement may be terminated on the part of the association at any time by three months notice. Nurse candidates, upon admission to the home, will pay 5s, to cover the expense of board, lodging, and washing, during their month’s trial. No claim will be admitted for the return of any portion of this sum in the event of their not remaining the whole time. Probationers will pay, for maintenance during their year’s training in the hospital training school, £30, by two instalments: viz. £15 upon admission to the hospital school, and £15 at the expiration of six months after admission. The about payment for maintenance in the hospital school is based upon an arrangement made with the committee of the Nightingale Fund, and applies only to St. Thomas’s Hospital. The probationer will be provided with full board, including the usual extras, an allowance of 1s. 6d. a week for washing, a uniform dress, a separate furnished bedroom, and a sitting-room in common. The instruction being provided at the expense of the Nightingale Fund will not be charged for, except in the event of withdrawal or dismissal. Probationers, upon re-entry into the home, will pay in advance £14; viz. £9 for maintenance during their further training (whether for three months or longer), and £5 as a fee towards the expenses of class instruction, books, &c. Probationers who satisfy the committee that they are unable to make the above payments will be allowed to postpone the payment of the whole or a portion until after the completion of their training, upon their entering into an undertaking to repay the amount by quarterly instalments, to be deducted from their salary, but so that if the engagement ceases from any cause, then the whole sum or the balance then due shall become payable at once. The total payments being then £44, the repayments shall be made as follows: £14 during the first year, £15 during the second and £15 during the third. Nurses on the staff of the association will receive a salary, payable quarterly, and commencing on their return to the central home from the hospital, of £35 for the first year, £38 for the second year, and so on increasing £3 every year until it reaches £50. The annual increase will depend upon the duties being satisfactorily performed. Nurses will, as a rule, reside in one of the homes of the association, and they will be provided with full board, including the usual extras; an allowance of 2s, 5d. a week for washing, and uniform dress; a separate bedroom furnished; and sitting and dining-rooms in common. Nurses will be required to wear, when on duty, the uniform dress adopted by the association. The association reserves the right of requiring the nurse to subscribe to a pension fund, the annual payment to any such fund not to exceed one-sixth of the nurse’s salary.
