The Constitution of the Company,
LIFE ASSURANCE having become a duty with the greater part of the population of these kingdoms, an enquiry is
unturally made into the constitutions of the various Companies established for that purpose.

The EAGLE LIFE ASSURANCE ASSOCIATION is empowered by Act of Parliament, The Public is secured by fan ample subscribed Capital. All Payments are set apart to accumulate in a distinct and inviolable fund; the Premiums have been calculated expressly for the Institution from the Data recently published by order of the House of Commons. The values of Male and female Life are now, for the first time, distinguished; and the rates, though lower than in most of the other established offices, have yet been kept sufficiently high to protect them from the fluctuation of the laws of mortality and of interest; by these precautions, Security, the first great object of the Assured, is effectually provided for, and the possibility of mischance for ever removed.

At the end of every Seven Years, a strict investigation is made into the funds, the full value of every existing claim determined, its amount retained, and the surplus apportioned. Four-fifths of the Profits of these periodical divisious are then allotted to the Assured, and may, at the option of the party, either be added to the Policy, or applied in reduction of the future Annual Payments ; so that a person insuring his own life, or the life of another, in this Office, without incurring the responsibility of mutual Assurance, may justly calculate upon a gradual annihilation of the Annual Premium, and after having fully obtained his object, and secured an independence to bis family, or his reversionary claims on others, that in. come will revert to him to be employed in further investment, or to increase the comforts of his declining years.

There are few who have not, at some period of their lives, been called abroad, and at the present enterprising moment, a Policy which should restrict a man's exertions within the limits of Europe, or subject him, after the payment of many years, to an arbitrary demand for every additional indulgence, must be felt as an incumbrance rather than a protection. To obviate this, one of the greatest evils of a still imperfect system, Tables have been constructed for all the principal Commercial and Colonial Establishments, and in this Institution, a person enjoys the gratuitous advantage of knowing, from the cominencement of his Assurance, the rate at which he must be accepted, and be entitled to proceed wherever bis future fortunes may call him.

The Directors having thus, in their general principles, endeavoured to extend the utility and improve the practice of Life Assurance, will, in all the details of the Office, meet, as far as possible, the convenience and facilitate the business of Parties Assuring.

The Board assembles every Tuesday and Friday, to determine on special cases, but Assurances may be completed on any day, a Medical Officer attending regularly at 2 o'Clock in Cornhill, and at 3 in Waterloo Place.

The Payments may be made Quarterly or Half-yearly. No extra charge is made for Admission, or nnder any other pretence, beyond the Government Duty. The Lives of Military or Naval Officers Assured at the ordinary rate, until called into actual service.

No additional sum required for a voyage, in a decked vessel, from any one port of the British Isles to another; Nor, in time of peace, from England to any harbour between Brest and the Texel, both inclusive.

Policies re-purchased.--Annuities bought and granted.

Assurances may be effected by letter, Medical Practitioners of eminence having been appointed as Referees, in every part of the kingdom.

Any further information—the particular rates of Premium for Survivorships, Endowments, Joint Lives, and other Lire Contingencies, Forms of Proposal, Declaration, Prospectus, &c. may be obtained by personal application at either of the Offices of the Company, or by letter, addressed to the Actuary in CORNHILL.

HENRY P. SMITH, Actuary.
