It s oul not be forgotten, however, that while the various Presbyterian bodies around make use of the Shorter Catechism, ' in which partial and often erroneous dogma is taught of the barest and baldest nature, a corresponding policy must be adopted by those having the responsible management of Church Schools, in order that, on the other hand, the ancient truths may be implanted in a terse and dogmatic form. The danger which at present threatens is a tendency to overlook this most important point. Another subject of congratulation is the remarkable in crease in schools which has taken place during the past ten years. In 1851 there were exactly 29; whereas in 1861 there are 123.
