The annual general meeting of the friends and supporters of the schools was held on Monday last, at the school-room. Lord James Stuart, who kindly presided, on taking the chair, called on The Rev. T. Stacey, who read the report, from which it appeared that the schools had progressed satisfactorily for the past year. It dwelt upon the beneficial effect to the schools from the .occasional examination of the children by the visitors. We quote an abstract of the It Ll'OlIT It is gratifying thus, in the twenty-eighth year of their establishment, truly to report of these schools, and to believe that their efficiency is not only unimpaired, but improving in strength and vigour, fullilling in deed as wtll as in design the objects for which claims are so constantly made upon the public benevolence through this institution. The committee desire to acknowledge, with due thankfulness to Almighty God, the continuance of the confidence and support of their fellow-townsmen. They experience no diminution of an enlightened christian liberality; on they contrary. They find the subscriptions fully adequate to their necessities, with something to spare. And this brings them to the subject of new schools, the necessity for which was acknowledged by the subscribers in the reception of the committee's report of last year. The difficulties that at the annual meeting of 1842 presented themselves to the adoption of the suggestion made in that report, for carrying out the measure of building new school- rooms, were handed over to the committee to deal with and they are thankful to say that they have beer- dulv rOIl- sidered, and, happily, overcome. A special general meeting of the subscribers was held on the 18th day of April last, at which resolutions were unanimously passed, expressive of the expediency of increasing our school accommodation, and of tht- grateful acceptance of a piece of land, in the parish of Saint Mary, As a site for the erection of new school-rooms, and for a play-ground, offered to us by the Marquess of Bute with his characteristic generosity, who was pleased to recommend the committee to have a sufficient outlay to the building to enable them to carry out the system of instruc- tion in the most effectual manner. Advertisements were subsequently inserted in the public newspapers for plans and estimates. Six were consequently sent in, out of which two were chosen by the committee, and referred to the secretaries, and to the Rev. J. C. Campbell, with a request that they would select of these two such one as to them appeared best. At this point the business now stands, and it is most de- sirable that this year's committee will not suffer the next building season to approach without being prepared for going forward with this most important work. The means for helping this work at the disposal of the committee are considerable, and no doubt can be entertained, that by the aid of public societies, and individual liberality, sufficient fund* may be raised to complete the new buildings with as little delay as can be reasonably anticipated in the progress of undertakings of this kind. ° "Of the improvement that has taken place in the ctl-rying on of the system mention has been already made, The committee are glad to add, that the benefits of instruc- tion are as much sought after, also, by the poor as at anv previous period; and the only drawback from the general satisfaction they feel in the present condition of the school is the fact, that the small weekly contribution of the children is collected with difficulty, in consequence, as it is alleged, of the scarcity of work and the occasional sus- pensions from attendance that the terms of the rules enjoin lead to something like laxity in the enforcement of discipline. But a discretion has been left to the master and mistress of dispensation from a rigid exaction of the weeklv payment in cases that appear to them to require such indulgence, which cases, however, they are instructed to lay before the secre- taries, who have seldom thought it necessary to alter their decisions. The average number of weekly attendances during the last year has been, of boys, 137, and of girls, 79, out of a list of 158 of the former, and of 100 of the latter." It was moved by Mr. William Williams, seconded by Mr. Charles Andrews, c. That an abstract of the treasurer's accounts, with the. report of the committee just read, be printed, and circulated among the subscribers." Mr. C. C. Williams, in moving the next resolution, said that he did so with much pleasure, as it afforded him an opportunity of bearing testimony to the assiduity and fidelity with which the duties entrusted to them had been discharged; and his regret at the loss the institution must sustain in the absence of the Rev. Mr. Campbell. He was not, he was sure, single in his appre- ciation of the efficacy with which he uniformly discharged the duties which his connection with the school imposed upon him. He was glad of the adhesion of the Rev. Mr. Morgan to the school, who, he hoped, would be found a fit successor to the Rev. Mr. Campbell. Mr. Williams con- cluded by moving — That the thanks of the subscribers be given to the committee for their services last year, and that the following gentlemen constitute a committee for the en- suing year Bird Mr Wiliiam Pearson, Rev. W. Bradley, Mr. W. A. Phillips, Mr. G Booker, T. A\ Esq. Pl.yce, j. B R Daw, Robert, Esq. Traherne, Rev. J. M. Langley, John II., Esq. Ti*ed,ven, Nlr. R. Evans, D., Esq. Watson, W. J., Esq.

The proposition was seconded by Mr. T. H, Lowder .rP' I?a\id1.Eva»9 proposed the following resolution — that the ladies of the committee are entitled to the grate- ful acknowledgments of the meeting for their past services especially for their assiduous and efficient attention to the Sunday-schools and that their committee for the ensuing year consist of the following ladies 0 Lady James Stuart Mrs. Miller Miss Stuart M rs. Aloore Mrs. G. Bird Mrs. Henry Morgan Mls- I)a^ Mrs. W. L. Morgan Mrs. David Evans Mrs, Stacoy Miss Langley Misa Towgood Miss Lewis It was seconded by Mr. John Williams. On the motion of Mr. J. B. Woods, seconded by Mr R. Daw— That the hearty thanks of the subscribers be given to the Rev. John Nelson, M.A rector of Peterstone-super- Ely, for the able and appropriate discourse preached by him in Cardiff church, in aid of the funds of this institution It was proposed by Mr. George Bird and seconded by Mr. Griffith l'hillips- That the best thanks of the subscribers are due, and are hereby given, to the treasurer and secretaries, for their at- tention to the. duties of their respective offices." Mr. Priest Richards said, that the purport of the resolu- tion which he had to propose consisted in a vote of thanks to the Rev. J. C. Campbell, for the very great services which he had rendered to the institution of the Cardiff Schools during his residence among them. The regret they Jlatnrally felt at being deprived of so much solicitude and aeal in the person of Mr. Campbell was qualified by the cordial and general satisfaction felt at his promotion, and his removal to another place, where the sphere of his utility was increased. He had undoubtedly conferred great benefit on the town of Cardiff; and it was no less a satisfaction to o.heis than ,0 lumself, that his opportunities for doin<» good ill a way most congenial to his own feelings will be promoted by the change. lie was glad to have that opportunity of expressing his worth, a d should be happy to find that his cessor followed 111 his steps. The Rev. Mr. Campbell kadi taken much interest in the school of the parish of St. Maw- The plans and specifications had been arranged, and a site. consisting of a quarter of an acre of ground, and from its vicinity to the church, perhaps the most eligible in the town, had been granted by Lord Bute. The space would afford not only ample school accommodation, but also agreeable to the plan of some of the Scotch schools, room for plav- ground. Those who knew the value of laud in that aeisfh- bourhood could easily estimate the munificence of the noble- Marquess in this grant Mr. Richards concluded by moving 1 hat this meeting deeply regrets the loss tW schools experience in the removal from Cardiff of the Puv.

Lord James Stuart, in reply, said that it afforded him gieat satisfaction to find that those schools, which were the object of their common solicitude, should prosper. Frolo the handsome and, no doubt, deserved eulogy passed on the- character of the Rev. Mr. Campbell, his conduct while among them must have been highly satisfactory and their regret was the greater, that a clergyman every way so amiabli and kindly disposed should have left them He was quite satisfied of the truth of what had been stated re- specting him, and he was sure that lys best efforts bad been directed to the promotion of the spiritual interests of the' church committed to his care, He could not conceal the- pleasure he felt that the Marquess of Bute bad been so for- I I
