BRITISH AND FOREIGN SCHOOL SOCIETY.

SUMMARY OF OPERATIONS, FROM MARCH 1, 1854, TO SEPT. 1, 1854.

One hundred and ninety-one students have been in training in the Normal College.

Forty-eight have received appointments to schools.

7'welve have withdrawn, either from illness, a desire to change their occupation, or a want of fitness for the work.

One hundred and twenty remain in the Institution.

It often acts at home, and generally in the colonies, through Societies having mainly religious objects; and, therefore, altogether unconnected with the State. Its agencies all tend to protect the schools from any possible interference with their liberty of action. It provitles, in fact, against dangers to which the reception of State aid might expose, if the organizations of the Government were not met by this and similar organizations of the voluntary principle.

“Further, it should be remembered that the Society, as such, is the only effective
