JONE 1, 1849.
GATESHEAD ADULT EVENING SCHOOL FOR Boys, originated with a few individuals who were strongly impressed with the ignorance prevailing in that place, and who felt the importance of making some effort to remove it. The school was commenced on the 8th January, 1849, in the school room underneath the Presbyterian chapel, Melbourne Street, and has been held four nights in the week. It has been conducted by 15 gratuitous teachers, and one paid teacher, Mr. John White, late master of the British School. The instruction communicated was in reading, writing, and arithmetic, in all of which numbers of the scholars made great proficiency. The number of scholars entered on the books, since the commencement down to the 5th April (the time the school closed), was 170. The greatest attendance in any week was 90, the ages of the scholars varied from 14 to 30, a great number being about 20. The teachers attended one or two nights in the week each ; but Mr. John Blagburn, watchmaker, who ought to be particularly mentioned, attended every night, with only two exceptions. The great interest which he took in the establishment of the school continued undiminished till the last. Mr. C. Burney, jun., acted as Secretary. We trust these praiseworthy and benevolent efforts will be resumed in the Autumn.
SUNDERLAND, PEACE MEETING.-A meeting was held in the Unitarian Chapel, Bridge Street, Sunderland, April 4, to promote the principles of Peace, and to gain signatures to a Petition to Parliament in support of Mr. Cobden's intended motion. Mr. John Wright gave a very eloquent lecture, in which he showed the Unchristianity of War, its barbarity, and its influence in demoralizing mankind. Mr. Braithwaite, an earnest and persevering friend of peaceful reform was afterwards called to the
chair, and the following resolutions were proposed, and carried unanimously:-1. Moved by Mr. James Chapman, and seconded by Mr. Harrison, "That this meeting considers War as incompatible with the spirit and precepts of the Gospel, and that an appeal to arms is a rude, irrational, and barbarous mode of settling international disputes.”—2. Moved by Mr. John Robinson, and seconded by Mr. W. Chapman, “That this meeting, considering the inhuman system of War to be inimical to the commercial interests of the nation, civil liberty, and the progress of civilization, determines to use its best endeavours in furtherance of Peace principles.” Mr. W. S. Robinson next proposed the adoption of a petition to Parliament, which was seconded by Mr. D. D. Scott. The meeting was pretty numerously attended, and the audience seemed to take great interest in the principles advocated.
THE MANCHESTER DISTRICT SUNDAY SCHOOL ASSOCIATION, held its fourth annual meeting in Dr. Beard's Chapel, Salford, April 6. The religious services were conducted in the morning by the Rev. G. Hoade, of Oldham, and the Rev. F. Howorth, of Bury. A numerous audience was present. Mr. Howorth's sermon, from Psalm cxix. 9, embraced various subjects of great interest and importance to the thorough working out of Sunday School instruction, and is to be published. The schools in connection with this District Association are twenty nine, with 878 teachers, and 5,762 children. The schools at Ashton-under-Lyne, Boston Mills, Dukinfield, Flowery Field, Gee Cross, Mottram, Newchurch, Oldham, Clover Street Rochdale, Styal, and Warrington, had been visited by the persons appointed to this duty at the previous anniversary. It is under the auspices of this Society that the “Sunday School Penny Magazine” is published. At the dinner about 150 persons were present, Dr. Beard, chairman. At the tea the commodious School Room underneath the chapel was crowded, J. A. Turner, Esq., presiding. Various interesting and appropriate addresses were delivered at these meetings by the Revds. Layhe, Domestic Missionary, Manchester ; Colston, of Styal; A. Macdonald, of Chowbent; Wright, of Macclesfield ; Dr. Beard, on the Use of the Bible in the Sunday School;" F. Howorth ; John Ashworth, of Newchurch, Rossendale; J. J. Tayler, of Manchester. The union of so many friends from distant localities banded together in the great and good work of Sunday School instruction, could not fail of happy effect on the minds and hearts of all concerned.
FRENCHAY, NEAR BRISTOL, Congregational tea meeting was held April 9. More than a hundred persons were present, the Rev. W. James, one of the Ministers of Lewins Mead Chapel, Bristol, presided.
