The interest of the amount is to be applied to the purchase of apparatus for the Physical Laboratory and to the remuneration of any Assistant employed, under the Professor of Natural Philosophy, in giving practical instruction to Students; or in any other way that shall seem to the Senatus of the time being best calculated to promote the practical study of Physics in connection with the ordinary teaching.
