union with the National Society, and been in constant communication with its Committee, as far as the education of the poor is concerned.
"The funds cannot yet be represented as being in a very flourishing condition, the receipts for the year, in donations and subscriptions, amounting only to 8761. 4s. 6d. The Board has hitherto abstained from any extraordinary efforts to increase them; but the time has arrived when, without a wide and prompt encouragement, the Board must abandon all ulterior purposes, and even its present objects cannot be carried fully into execution. Unless more ample resources placed at its command, its actual arrangements and operations can hardly be completed; and still less will it be enabled to afford any aid towards
erecting schools,-raising the salaries of masters and mistresses,-putting out as apprentices to them boys and girls of promising abilities and unexceptionable conduct,-providing, by other means, a larger supply of pupilteachers or assistant-teachers, or, in
fact, furthering any of those ends which would make the advantage of an union with itself more deeply felt and more generally recognised.
"The Committee therefore suggest, that great advantage might accrue, if the Clergy of each parish could make it convenient, assisted by a portion of the laity, to acquaint their respective parishioners with the formation and constitution of the Board, and invite their cooperation in the efficient promotion of its designs."
