SOCIETY'S OFFICE, ADELPHI, June 1st, 1802. ORDERED,
That the several Candidates and Claimants to whom the Society shall adjudge Premiums or Bounties, do attend at the Society's Office in the Adelphi, on the last Tuesday in May 1803, at Twelve o'Clock a: Noon precisely, to receive the same; that Day being appointed by the Sóciety for the Distribution of their Rewards: sind before that Time no Premium or Bounty will be delivered, excepting to those who are about 10 leave the kingdom.
In Cases where the Society may think fit to admit Excuses for not attending in Person, Deputies may be substituted to receive the Rewards, provided such Deputies are either Members of the Society, or the superior Officers thereof.
As the great object of the Society in rewarding individuals is to draw furth and give currency to those inventions and improvements, which are likely to benefit the public at large, candidates are requested to observe, that if the means, by which the respective objects are effected, do require an expense or trouble too great for general purposes, the Society will not consider itself as bound to give the offered reward; but, though it thus reserves the power of giving in all cases such part only of any premium as the performance shall be adjudged to deserve, or of withholding the whole if there be no merit, yet the candidates may be assured the Society will always judge liberally of their ses eral claims.
It is required that the matters for which premiums are offered, be delivered in without names or any intimation to whom they belong; that each particular thing be marked in what manner cach claimant thinks ht, such claimant sending with it a paper sealed up, having on the outside a corresponding mark, and, on the inside, the claimant's name and address; and all candidates are to take notice, that no claim for a premium will be attended to, unless the conditions of the adi vertisement are fully complied with.
No papers shall be opened, but such as shall gain premiums, unless where it appears to the Society absolutely necessary for the determination of the claim; all the rest shall be returned uns opened with the matters to which they belong, if inquired after by the mark, within two years ; after which time, if not demanded, they shall be publicly burnt, unopened, at some mceting of the Society.
All models of machines, which obtain premiums or bounties, shall be the property of the Society; and, where a premium or bounty is given for any machine, a perfect model thereof shali be given to the Society.
All the premiums of this Society are designed for Great Britain and Ireland, unless expressly mentioned to the contrary.
The claims shall be determined as soon as possible after the delivery of the specimens.
No person shall receive any premium, bounty, or encouragement, from the Society, for any matter for which he has obtained, or purposes to obtain, a patent.
A candidate for a premium, or a persons applying for a bounty, being detected in any disingenuous methort to impose on the Society, shall forseit such bounty, and be deemed incapable of obtaining any for the future.
The performances which each ycar obtain premiums or bounties are to remain with the society until after the public distribution of rewards.
No member of this Society shall be a candidate for, or entitled to receive, any premium, bounty, or reward, whatsoever, except the honorary medal of the Society. The candidates are, in all cases, expected to furnish a particular account of the subject of their claims ; and, where certificates are required to be produced in claim of premiums, they should be expressed, as nearly as possible, in the words of the respective advertisements, and be signed by persons who have a positive knowledge of the facts stated.
Where premiums or bounties are obtained in consequence of specimens produced, the Society mcan to retain such part of those specimens as they may judge necessary, making a reasonable allowance for the same.
No candidates shall be present at any meetings of the Society or committees, or admitted at the Society's rooms, after they have delivered in their claims, until such claims are adjudged, una less summoned by the committee.
N. B. The Society farther invite the communications of scientific and practical men upon any of the subjects for which premiums are offered, although their experiments may have been conducted upon a smaller scale than the terms of cach require, as they may afford ground for more extensive application, and thus materially forward the views of the Society and contribute to the advantage of the public.

The models required by the Society should be upon the scale of one inch to a foot.

The Society desire that the Papers on different subjects sent to them may be full, clear, explicit, fic for publication, and rather in the form of Ësays than of Letters.
