HE Meetings of the Committee of the National Society have been attended during the past month by his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Earl of Romney, the Lords Bishops of London and Oxford, Rev. Lord John Thynne, Sir H. Thompson, Bart., Sir Thomas Phillips, the Ven. Archdeacons Sinclair and Harrison, and Rev. Canon Jennings.
The subscription to this Paper, 2s. 6d. payable in advance, is now due. The amount may be remitted as usual in postage-stamps. The Editor desires to observe, that this direct mode of remittance is preferred to payment through local channels with subscriptions to the general funds of the Society.
In the notice given in the December Number respecting copies of the Sundayschool Paper, a serious error occurred. It was stated that any subscriber to the Monthly Paper could have six copies of the Sunday-school Paper sent to him regularly under the Monthly Paper cover for 2s. 6d. extra a-year, if paid in advance; while the correct amount is 5s. extra. As remarked in the December Number, wherever it is practicable, the mode of obtaining the Paper through a bookseller is much to be desired, as more generally advantageous to the Society.
In commencing the series of Numbers for the new year, regard has been shown to the expressed wishes of many contributors that the typography of the Paper should be improved. In future it is proposed to allow more space for the several articles which may appear, and to avoid as much as possible the use of very small type. The best thanks of the Society are due to those correspondents who have so kindly contributed to the pages of the Paper during the past year. With the new year it is to be hoped, that the deep interest taken in the work of education will continue to call forth communications which may edify alike the promoter, manager, and teacher of day as well as Sunday schools. Correspondents are requested to observe, that rejected contributions cannot be separately acknowledged as heretofore. A large portion of the papers sent are not inserted because it is found impossible, even if it were desirable, to devote space to numerous communications on the same subject.
The following Grants have been voted by the National Society during the past month in aid of building and fitting-up schoolrooms and teachers' residences. Contributions are now much needed to enable the Committee to continue this important branch of the Society's labours.
St. Stephen's, Old Ford
The Treasurer has been authorised to pay the Grants voted to the Schools in the following places, the several undertakings having been reported as completed:
A meeting of the friends and supporters of the National Society was held on the 5th of December at Carlisle, under the presidency of Archdeacon Jackson. The meeting was opened by prayer. The chairman read letters from the Bishop of the diocese and the Archdeacon of Westmoreland, expressing regret that previous engagements hindered their attendance, and then, after some prefatory remarks, called on the Society's Travelling Secretary, who addressed the meeting at some length. Mr. Warren referred to the present peaceful state of the Education question as compared with the discussions and differences which ten years ago so hindered the work,―arguing that the present was essentially the time for vigorous and united action on behalf of the Church. He drew attention to the large number of schools in the diocese aided by the Society; and the fact, that owing to the non-existence of diocesan training institutions the applications to London for teachers were very numerous; and concluded by urging the formation of a local committee and branch depôt for school books and materials. Resolutions embodying these ideas were unanimously carried, and a special collection made on the spot. Rev. Frederick Tireman was appointed local secretary and treasurer.
On Monday the 14th, a meeting was held at Leamington,―the Lord-Lieutenant of Warwickshire in the chair,-in aid of the funds of a joint depôt recently established in that town of the National Society and Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge. The second resolution, to the effect that "it is the duty of every Christian citizen to aid the efforts made for the religious education of the poor, and that the National Society had by its past exertions deserved the confidence and support of the country," was proposed by the Rev. J. R. Young, Rector of Whitnash, and National Society's Local Treasurer for Leamington; and
seconded by the Rev. Richard Chaffer, who attended as a deputation from the Society. Mr. Chaffer gave a sketch of the efforts made by the Church on behalf of education from the Reformation to the present time, and detailed the various operations of the Society. The Rev. J. Wise gave an account of the Leamington depôt; and a vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the meeting. The collection amounted to 277.
Sermons have been preached during the past month at Cambridge and Lamborne, by the Rev. Richard Chaffer; at and near Durham, by the Rev. Alan Greenwell, who has announced that the Bishop of the diocese has fixed the Easter recess for a general meeting at Durham on behalf of the Society.
The following Donations and new Annual Subscriptions have been contributed since the last announcement, and are hereby thankfully acknowledged. The List is made up to the 15th December:
