IIIRWAUN. THE NEW BRITISH SCHOOL.—We are glad to learn that the projected British School at this place is progressing most satiafac- torily. It is in contemplation to build a house that will accommo- date from 30J to 400 children. The estimated expense is about £ 500, and it is expected the amount will shortly be realised, with- out the aid of the Committee of Council. All parties and classes join most heartily in the work. Mr. Francis C'rawshay, with he, accustomed liberality, has subscribed £50 towards the building' and has also promised all the aid in his power to further the ob- jects of the committee. It is worthy of remark, and should be put on record (and we do so not merely for the gratification of personal feeling, however pleasing that may be, but for the public good, in the hope it may induce others in similar circumstances to go and do likewise), that Mr. Crawshay's kind feelings and gene- uus conduct have won for him the esteem of all with whom he has to do. Remakes frequent practice of visiting the abodes of the poor and the sick, and with a liberal hand and a generous hsart, dispenses to their wants. His conduct, contrasted with that of many landlords and ironmasters, is most praiseworthy. We hap- pen to know of some who have not only not contributed towards the establishment of British Schools in their respective neighbour- iiiods, but have positively refused to sell land for that purpose I We hope the liberal and benevolent conduct of Mr. Crawshay will have its due influence upon others in similar circumstances and that instead of enslaving their tenants both physically and mentally, we shall find landlords and masters engaged in acts of charity and benevolence similar to those we have had the pleasure of recording of Mr. Crawshay. We need hardly say that Mr, C. will be amply rewarded, not only in the pleasing satisfaction of having contributed to the welfare and comfort of society, but also irfthe gratitude and respect of the humble recipients of his gene- rosity.
