THE "WESTMINSTER" AND ELEMENTARY EDUCATION. The Welsh literary jvorld is much gratified at the pxhra promiuence given in the Westminster Iteview to the masterly articla on Oar Etemeu- t;,ry Schools," written by Mr Beriah GWfDve Evans. The compliment is regarded not merely as a recognition of the merits of Mr Evans as an educationist, but also as a generous acknow- ledgment of Welsh capacity. No contribution has in recent years excited in the cultured circles of the principality more universal and genuine satisfaction. The Baner, the most representative and popular of Welsh weeklies, devotes two lengthy editorials to a discussion of the chief points in the article, and purposes to devote to them yet another couple of columns. It explains that Mr Beriah Evans has rendered distinguished service to the cause of Weisli education that he was a pioneer of the healthful radical changes which have now been wrought in our educational system. The Baner also refers to the lucid way in which Mr Evans has made plain the perplexities of the new code. The matter to Wales in these days of struggle after fulness of educational life is, the Barter says, of intensest interest, and Mr Evans, by his thoughtful work, has conferred upon Wales another signal service which it is not likely to forget. The Baner (like its contemporaries) appears to thoroughly agree with the argument and conclusions of Mr Beriah Evans. —1"Lladmerydd" (Dr John Thomas, Liverpool, ex-president of the Congregational Union of England and Wales), a critic whose austere judg- ment, is never impaired by sentimentalism, also givas unstinted praise in the Tyst a'r Oydd to the Westminster article. Mr Evans, remarks Dr Thomas, proves that bo understands the subject of elemeutnry education in each of its manifold aspects, Clericalism is bent upon sectarianising education, and it is, therefore, imperative that the musses should make education a study. Mr Evans has helped to make the vast and all-important theme comprehensible in its general and Welsh relationship, and some method ought to be devised by which the invaluable article shall be brought within reach of the many who do not happen to have ready access to the Westminster. The Genedl congratulates Mr Evaus and the We&tminster upon the literary connection which has been so felicitously formed, and believes it is within the limits of accuracy in stating that Mr El v:ljim is the first Welshman who has figured as a Westminster reviewer. No one has a more thorough knowledge of education in its relation to Wales than Mr Beriah Evans, and all who feel an interest in education should peruse his art-icle. The winds are blowing heavily from the direction of Episcopaiianism, and it ia the duty of every friend of liberty: to arise, and assert that the schools sup- ported by the rates shall be under the control of the ratepayers. This is one of the admirable morals enforced by Mr Evans in the Review.—The London correspondent of the Goleuad offers Mr Evans his felicitations upon the capable literary work which he has done, aud the Carnarvon and Denbigh Herald impresses upon a wider constituency that while it is an honour to Mr Evans to have attained the first place in the celebrated Review to which John Stunrt Mill was wont to contribute, it is no less a ptpce of good luck for the editor of the Westminster to have secured a contribution on the subject from one who hxssiudied itso thoroughly." The North. Wales Observer alludes to the article with unalloyed .satisfaction.
