AT the final meeting, on Saturday last, of the General Committee of the International Fisheries Exhibition, the balance of the funds was disposed of. The surplus amounts to over 15,000l., and of this 10,000l. were allotted to alleviate the distress of widows and orphans of sea fishermen, while 3000l. were voted as an endowment to a society which is to be called “The Royal Fisheries Society,” whose functions will be somewhat similar to those of the Royal Agricultural Society; the remaining 2000l. are kept in reserve.
