BISHOP OF MANCHESTER ON CHURCH CATECHISM. The Bishop of Manchester, at a Sunday-school meeting in Manchester, said :-He did not know much of the teaching in the great Sunday schools in Lancashire. His knowledge of such institutions was formed on a very much narrower basis, those he knew most of being in small rural parishes, in Wiltshire and Berkshire. He had inspected schools in those counties, and found that the instruction given, though somewhat elementary, was very thorough and sound, and neither teachers nor scholars were ashamed of teaching and learning the Church Catechism. He thought, in spite of all that had been said to the disparage- ment of that admirable formula, he would have to wait a long time before he see a better manual of instruction to be placed before the children for soundness and simplicity of doctrine and instruction in the great principles of Christian faith and duty. They did not expect to turn their scholars out as theologians armed to meet any possible adversary, but they did wish them to understand the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer and the great principles of the Christian faith. He was afraid that a great deal of the unhappy and unwholesome controversy that marked the religious mind in the present day arose from people not understanding that there was such a thing as a law of proportion in the Christian faith, that some doctrines were more important than others, that on some points men might be allowed to differ in opinion, while there were others that must be held to be fundamental and could not be given up as long as Christianity was recognized as a revelation from God at all.
