        The DIRECTORS of the North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company present the foregoing statement as their Third Annual Report to the members of the Company.

        By reference to this statement, it will be seen that, whilst there has not been a very great increase of business, the accumulated capital of the Company is amply sufficient, independent of the Sound Assurance Principles upon which this Company is conducted, to afford a sure guarantee to the Member in case of Death.

        As it is a matter of no small importance, that the transactions of this Company should be well understood by all its members, the Directors take the liberty of calling their attention to the last clause of the eleventh section of the By-Laws: This Regulation provides that, "If the Premium is paid within forty days after it is due, the Party taking the risk of Death during the forty days, the Policy will be renewed without Extra Charge."

        They will likewise mention in this connection, what they desire shall be distinctly understood as a settled law of the Company, vis: That where a life member forfeits his Policy, the Board will, in every case, proceed to collect the Premium Note, which has been given in part payment of the Premium. The justice of this law is obvious; for, not to mention other sources of evil and imposition, which the neglect of it might open upon the Company, it would be so strong an inducement for those, who had, with the best intentions and purposes, taken out a Policy of Insurance for life, to suffer it to expire after a short time from mere whim or caprice

        Upon the subject of Slave Insurance, the Directors have again increased the rate of the Premium. This has been done because, in the opinion of the Directors, the nature of the risk and the best interest of the Company require it.

        The Directors have this day declared a dividend of 14 per cent to the life members, who have renewed their policies prior to the first Monday of July. This dividend has been carried


Page 5

to the credit of each member entitled to it, and will be allowed on the Premium Note at the next annual renewal; or, where the whole Premium has been paid in cash, the dividend will be allowed as cash in the next annual payment of the Premium.

Page 15

PROOFS OF LOSS REQUIRED.

        A certificate of the Physician who attended the party in his last illness, stating particularly the nature of the disease, its duration, and the time he died.

        A certificate of a friend or intimate acquaintance, stating how long he was sick, and that he was present during his illness, or at his death, and that he is knowing to his death.

        A certificate of the Undertaker, or Sexton, who attended the funeral of the party, and saw his remains interred.

        These several certificates must be sworn or affirmed to, before a magistrate, or some one empowered to administer an oath or affirmation.

NECESSARY RECEIPT.

        When it is a wife's policy on the life of her husband, or of a party insuring the life of another, or in case of an assigned policy, a receipt on the policy is sufficient, from the parties holding such policies. But when a party insures his own life, in case of loss, the insurance must be collected by an Executor or Administrator, legally authorized to settle the estate, and the policy must be surrendered, receipted by the Executor or Administrator.


Page 16

REMARKS.

        Until within a few years past, Life Insurance in this country was not known, except through the agencies of a few European Companies in our populous cities; and the first attempt to establish such Companies in this country was regarded as an infringement upon the decrees of that Superintending Providence, which hath "appointed unto all men once to die." Many supposed that, being unwilling to confide our doctrines to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, we were about to transfer the safety of human life to the keeping of our follow men.

        It has by some been doubted whether any thing like an accurate calculation of the mean duration of life can be made; and that any attempt to base the chances of success upon the average bills of mortality, would be exceedingly unsafe. In this opinion, however candidly entertained, there is a decided error. The experience of an accurate observation of nearly two hundred years has proved that it is possible to make a calculation of human life, which will not in that time vary 6 per cent.

        The first table made in England, showing the expectation of life at various ages, was by Dr. Price, from observations of the Bills of Mortality in Northampton; and, fifty years subsequent to this time, the Carlisle table was made by Joshua Milne, from observations of Dr. Heysham of Carlisle; this was from 1779 to 1787.

        The decrements of life in these tables differ very materially; the Northampton is much greater than the Carlisle. This discrepancy can readily be reconciled, by taking into account the difference in the location of the two places. The Northampton District is decidedly unhealthy, while the Carlisle has always been regarded as one of the most healthy Districts in England.

        The Northampton tables make the whole number of persons embraced in their calculations become extinct at the age of 96


Page 17

and the Carlisle at 104. Various other tabular views of the bills of mortality have been compiled in various districts of England, and on the European Continent, by men of deep research; and an immense amount of facts have thus been given to the world, which have formed the basis of the law of average of human life, and the value of annuities, and a correct scale or tariff of Premiums on Life Insurance.

        Life Insurance only guarantees the laws of average; it is not founded on the calculation whether death will or will not happen. Death is inevitably the fate of all men. Every person born must die; but most live through a series of years, and the law of average and duration of human life is reduced almost to an exact science, and furnishes a data upon which to base the operations of a Life Insurance Company, without subjecting it any contingency which can impair its ability to meet its losses. In this respect, it is very different from all other species of Insurance. The Insurer of a number of houses does not know whether a fire shall occur among his risks or not. The Underwriter for the vessel which leaves on a distant voyage, does not know whether the elements shall be prosperous for the safety of the noble bark, or otherwise. The Health Insurer does not know whether his subject shall continue well, or be taken sick. There is no positive data upon which to base the calculations of success in Companies of this kind; but, in Life Insurance, death is regarded as a fixed fact--"dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return"--and all the calculations are made in view of the final drama of human life.

        Among the different tables in use with Insurance Companies, the Carlisle seems to be the favorite. Its calculations are found to apply with exceeding minuteness to the present experience of Insurance Companies in the middle States of our Union, and all that have adopted it seem to be doing a safe and profitable business.

        Life Insurance Companies are divided into three classes, viz: Joint Stock, Mixed, and Mutual. The Joint Stock Company


Page 18

has a Capital furnished by subscription as a means of investing surplus funds, and whatever accumulation of profits occur, they are placed to the credit of each Stockholder as a speculation on his part. In a Mixed Company, there is a partial division of profits, according to the mode fixed for a division of profits among themselves.

        In the Mutual system, all Life Insurers are equally entitled to the profits of the Company, in proportion to the amount of premiums by them respectively paid in; all are entitled to share in its management and deliberations, and all stimulated by the same interest in securing a successful administration of its affairs. It thus presents the strongest inducements to the insurer; and whilst it cannot be denied that these features of the Mutual System have of late years attracted the most favorable consideration of the public, it is equally true that the experience of such Companies, well conducted, shows they have been uniformly and eminently successful.

        By reference to the charter of this Company hereunto annexed, it will be perceived that the privilege is granted to a Husband to insure his own life for the benefit of his Wife and Children, without any liability to have the amount diverted to the payment of any contracts, or debts of his own; and in like manner the wife may insure the life of her husband, subject to the same regulations. These are highly important features in our character, which will readily commend themselves to the attention of the intelligent reader. This company also gives an annual division of profits to all life insurers, and proposes to charge no more for insurance than actual cost. The abundant success which has attended other companies, based upon similar principles, leaves no doubt as to the efficiency of the institution, and also its ability promptly to discharge all claims accruing against it.

        The North Carolina Company will also insure the lives of all healthy Slaves from a period of one to five years: but, in no case can their owners or insurers participate in the profits of the company.


Page 19

        This feature is deemed a most important desideratum to the people of North Carolina and adjoining States. It opens a new field of thought to our planters, and other slave owners, and proposes to secure them in the possession of that kind of property, which constitutes half of the actual wealth of the State.--Its utility has thus far been recognized on all hands; and it is confidently predicted that the day is not far distant when this species of property will be almost universally under insurance.

        But it can scarcely be deemed necessary, at this day, to enter into an elaborate argument to show the advantages and benefits of Life Insurance. The system speaks for itself. It is known by its fruits, not only in Europe but in this country; and its usefulness, in the future, must keep pace with the expectations of society and the demands of an enlightened civilization.
