the school has re-opened, 160 boys and 100 girls have been admitted. They are instructed in two rooms, and in separate classes, by one master and monitors. Excellent order is preserved without any undue severity. The boys read the History of England, learn geography and grammar, are well advanced in reading, and have a satisfactory knowledge of the Scriptures. The master is a conscientious and intelligent man, who has succeeded, under extremely difficult circumstances, in establishing a good school, and in winning the confidence of all parties. The trustees have agreed to suggestions by which the organization of

the school is likely to be improved. Stoke by-Nayland. -An inconvenient school

room in a cottage. The boys are intelligent and receive some general information, and appear well instructed by a zealous master. The girls read well; more time than usual given to needlework. I was favourably impressed by the inanner aud behaviour of the elder girls. The infants appear to be kept in good order by a respectable

young teacber.

Wickham-Skeith.-A pretty village school, in

which a few young children are under the care of a young woman, sent to keep them together until the services of a regular mistress can be secured. The religious instruction is good. The school was kept by the clergyman and

his wife for five weeks, and is maintained at Wisset. -The school-room is not well ventilated,

The children obedient and cheerful, and read the Testament witb ease. The methods are peculiar, and not unsuccessful. The clergymau fears that he will not be able to keep this

school open, owing to the want of support. Witnesham.-A good school, supported by the

rector. The teachers would be much benefited

by training. Woolpit.-The children read tolerably well,

and the penmanship is very good. There
seems to be little or no attempt made to cul-
tivate their intelligence. The school has the
merits and demerits of a common commercial

2nd School. The children are very young,

the instruction elementary, but pains have been taken with the reading, and the children give pleasing answers to simple and practical ques

tions on religious subjects. The organization of these schools might be con

siderably improved with properly trained

teachers. 24 13 0 Wolverstone.-'The manners of the children are

good, and the instruction shows both care and skill in the mistress. Some girls read with

ease in books of general information. Wrentham.--The master and mistress are in.

efficient, but the children have been admirably taught by a lady who attends the school regu. larly. The History of England, geography, and grammar, are taught with success. The infant-school tolerably well conducted by a young mistress. Yoxford.—Both schools are in good order; the

instruction is elementary, but conducted with great care. Penmanship unusually good ; ciphering to the Rule of T'uree; and good religious instruction. The school is much improved since last year.
