Jrish Chronicle.

The Committee have been gratified to learn, from a respectable Gentleman, not connected with the Society, who has been lately in Ireland, and who visited some of their Schools, that they are well-conducted, and that the scholars are making great improvement. A satisfactory proof of their utility will be found in the letter of Mr. Wilson, which gives an account of the subscriptions received this year from Gentlemen in Connaught, residing in their immediate vicinity, and who are, there. fore, well able to appreciate the advantages derived from their establishment. The Committee indulge the hope, as the scriptures is the only school-book in these humble seminaries, the promised blessing of the Holy Spirit will be afforded; so that many of the rising generation in our sister country will be emancipated from the bondage of superstition and vice, and become interested in all the privileges and immunities of the sons and daughters of the Lord God Almighty. The journals of the Irish Readers are very interesting.
