ROGER EDWARDS' GRAMMAR SCHOOL, AT USK. [TO THE KDITOn ] SIR,-I hope to befavoured with a share of your impartial liberality, lo make a few remarks on the above school. Being an old inhabitant of Usk, I complain, with many others interested, of a new arrangement of ihe trustees, not to admit any boy into the school under a charge of £ 2 per annum. From 1624, when this excellent institution was founded, down to a recent date, the grammar school was raEE to all classes and many are they who can testify to the great advantages ihey received under lhal favourable circumstance but it now appears that boys in the 19th century, are not to be favoured with that education which was freely offered to them in the 17th,—and therefore the old advantages must be protected or inquired into. I hope the trustees will not overlook the effect of their new plan when they make their observations on the present scholara and will hesitate before they persevere in depriving the poorer boys, expressly included and cared for by the benevolent founder of the free-school in Usk. April 28tb. Yours respectfully, PITER.
