MY LORDS,

The schools under Inspection in Hampshire, Wiltshire, and Berkshire, forming the Southern District, are 292 in number. Of these schools, 117°have received your Lordships' grants; 53, those administered by the Lords of the Treasury; and 102, have invited inspection not having received any public grant.

The following table exhibits the numbers in which these different classes of schools are distributed through the three counties of my district.

I commenced the inspection of these schools in the month of March, and continued it until the end of May, when, by your Lordships' authority, the periodical Inspection of schools was discontinued ; and I have since devoted to the examination of such schools as applied for the appointment of pupil teachers, under the provisions of your “ Recent Minutes,” the time left to me by the discharge of other duties.

N. B.— The items in the foregoing Tables are extracted from Returns made by the correspondents of the various Schools enumerated, in an. swer to questions addressed to them. It could not, perhaps, be expected that the answers should agree in form sufficiently to admit of tabularization. But it was deemed useful to supply the information which these answers contain relative to the position of Elementary Schools in various parts of the country, and it is expected that the nature of these inquiries will be better appreciated by the parties to whom they are addressed after they are seen thus reduced to a tabular form.

The returns from which the above table has been extracted, show 32 schools in which the expenditure is stated to exceed the income, without accounting for the deficiency. In 284 returns the deficiency of income with regard to the expenditure, is stated to be covered by charitable individuals. In but 144 schools is the income stated to exceed the expenditure, and in 68 schools the expenditure is barely covered by the income.

No account of income or expenditure has been returned by 141 schools.

The assistance of the Committee of Council on Education has, within the short period that has elapsed since the publication of the Minutes relating to Pupil Teachers, (up to 30th June 1848) been sought by 517 schools in England, and by 1,437 teachers and pupil teachers. In these schools the sum of £20,664* has been granted. A further grant of £5,013 has been made in augmentation of the salaries of such Schoolmasters as have obtained a certificate of merit. Thirty-eight pupil teachers have been apprenticed in 10 schools in Scotland with annual grants amounting to £551. The average cost of education in 519 schools in England, which have made complete returns, is £1. Os. 7£d. per head per annum.

That in 20 schools in Wales averages 12s. 1d. per child. In Scotland the average charge is 12s. 9d. per

child

per annum.

These amounts have been corrected to the 1st Oct. for the information of such schools

as have, or have not complied with the requisitions contained in the Minutes of the Committee of Council. The sum stated in the folio volume is £26,242 10s., as granted in gratuities to teachers, and in augmentation of salaries where certificates of merit have been obtained.
