Our Institution fi.st went into opera

scholars, and has since increased its
number to upwards of forty. Previous
experience on the plan ot Mutual In
struction, or that of the Monitorial and
Lancasleiiari combined as circumstances
required, connected with the facilities
afforded by having a uniformity of the
most approved school books, have ena
bled the Principal, the Rev. Sidney

himself, with no assistance except that
of his scholars. Should any, not ac
quainted with the above plan, doubt the
facility which it affords an individual for
teaching a large number advantageously,
let them not hastily decide against (what
is thought by many whose opinions are
entitled to deference) an improvement
in education; but as one means of get
ting light on the subject, lef them attend
the coming Examination and judge for
