The State owes the School Fund $36,346 07, and there is a State loan due and unpaid of $35,000, making a total indebtedness of $71,346 07. There is a contingent fund of $200,000, being the amount of stock owned by the State in the Camden and Amboy Railroad, and Delaware and Raritan Canal. The amount of the Free School Fund is $371,091 06, the increase last year being $1,161 25. There is due to said fund from insolvent banks $11,169 85. If the amount due the School fund were added to its present capital it would amount to $407,437 13.

A METHOD OF COMPUTING INTEREST. A correspondent of the Baltimore Sun communicates the following simple plan for computing interest, at 6 per cent per annum, for any number of days, which he learned, he says, twelve years ago :

“ Divide the number of days by 6, and multiply the dollars by the dividend, the result is the interest in decimals; cut off the right hand figure, and you have it in dollars and cents. Thus :-What is the interest on $100 for 21 days ? Twenty-one divided by 6 is 31; 100 multiplied by 34 is 350, or 35 cents. Again—what is the interest on $378 for 93 days? Ninety-three divided by 6 is 157; 378 multiplied by 154 is 5,859, or $5 85 9-10. Let book-keepers try this rule, and they will find that it is no humbug."
