and the obstacles which impede its progress or efficiency. 3. To take measures for the extension and improvement of education in connexion with the Church of England throughout the diocese. 4. To bring into union with itself as many as possible of the schools existing in the diocese, on the terms adopted by the National Society. 5. To establish an effectual system of inspection and periodical examination of the schools in union with the board, with the concurrence of the managers of such schools, and under the sanction of the bishop.

“ N.B. With regard to the objects of the board, a peculiarity is to be observed, which distinguishes the diocese of London from the other dioceses of the kingdom. Two among the principal objects of the other diocesan boards are, Ist, To institute schools for the training of masters ; 2d, To establish, or take into union, middle or commercial schools. But in London, the former of these objects is about to be accomplished by the immediate establishment of a training institution, under the superintendence of the National Society; and the latter has been already in some measure accomplished by the Metropolitan Cominercial Institution, which has a central school in Rose Street, Soho, and local schools in union. bable, however, that one or both of these objects will hereafter be brought under the attention of the diocesan board, which will put itself in immediate communication with the committee of the Metropolitan Commercial Institution.

"V. That, in furtherance of its designs, it is desirable for the board, 1st, To promote the formation of local or district boards in different parts of the diocese, which shall be in connexion and communication with the general diocesan board. 2. To transmit a periodical report of the inquiries and transactions of the board so far as relates to the education of the poor; as also to invite the co-operation of other societies or institutions for education established in the diocese on the principles of the Church of England.”
