COLLEGIATE SCHOOL OF CAMBERWELL.-On the 26th of January last was opened the Collegiate School of Camberwell, an institution newly established, with the view of uniting, at a moderate expense, not only a good education with sound religious principles, but also the advantages of a public school, with the domestic care and parental superintendence of private tuition. The institution, for which an elegant Gothic building has been erected in the Grove, is calculated for the reception of 200 pupils. Nearly half that number have already been entered, and the friends of the establishment are sanguine in their expectations of success. In the absence of the Bishop of the diocese, the President, the Rev. J. G. Storie, M.A., Vicar of Camberwell, presided at the ceremony of opening the School, when an inaugural address was delivered by the Head Master, the Rev. J. A. Giles, M.A., late Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. The Committee of Management, consisting of the Vicar, the Rev. H. Melville, the Rev. T. Dale, the Rev. M. Anderson, and several of the lay members, dined afterwards at the Grove House, with a numerous and select body of the friends of the institution.

The course of education pursued at this establishment comprises religious instruction according to the doctrines of the Church of England. The Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, as well as the modern languages, Mathematics, Arithmetic, Geography, History, with every other branch of useful and polite learning. The liberality with which all its provisions have been framed, and the zeal that has been manifested by every one connected with it, give the most flattering hopes that the Collegiate School will soon occupy a leading station among the institutions which have lately been erected on the same principles.

MORE DISSENTING HONESTY.-In “A Comparative View of the Hearers, Communicants, and Scholars, belonging to Churchmen, Dissenters, and Wesleyan Methodists in two hundred and three towns and villages in England," just put forth by the members of the “ Voluntary System,” we have the following comparison. The totals of these 203 places are thus stated :

Hearers.

Communicants.
Dissenters . . . . 231,701

47,276
Episcopalians ... 166,099

9,625 But now, how do our readers suppose that these marvellous results are got at? By such means as these : under the head of Liverpool we have set down for Roman Catholics, hearers, 50,000; communicants, 12,000; and these two little items, with divers others of the same kind, are then made to swell the above totals of “ Dissenters."

The discrepancy of " communicants" between the Dissenters and the Churchmen is remarkable ; and no wonder. Professing to give the facts as to these 203 towns, they altogether omit the communicants in the churches in eighty-eight of them! and 80 coolly sum up their total, and talk of the “ general result" of the whole 203.

Having thus, by throwing 50,000 Papists into one scale, and leaving out the communicants of eighty-eight churches from the other, brought the balance to a conveniet size; they end by earnestly desiring a general census, professing to believe that half the kingdom would present a picture very much like that which they have here depicted.

Of course these 203 towns present a fair specimen of the empire. Of course there was no reason whatever for their being selected by the Congregational Magazine. Shall we remind these gentry of a small item or two, which it seems very convenient to them to forget!

The parishes of England are in all, we believe, 10,701. In how many of these have the Dissenters even the smallest footing?

The Congregational Magazine itself, of December, 1829, furnishes a complete list of all the meeting-houses of that denomination in England ; they amounted to 1,289. There were also 888 of the Baptist persuasion, and rather more than 200 Presbyterian, which, however, were mostly Socinian.

In above 8,000 parishes of England, then, that is, in more than four out of five-dissent has no footing whatever. We would have them bear this fact in mind, and it may, perhaps, cool their ardent desires for a complete and general census.

BISHOPRICS OF MADRAS AND BOMBAY.-Lord Ellenborough, the new President of the Board of Control, has the patronage of the above sees, each with an allowance of 2,500l. per annum, and which have not hitherto been filled up.

ORDINATIONS.—The Bishop of Oxford intends to hold his next General Ordination at Christ Church, on Trinity Sunday, June 14; and all Candidates are required to send their testimonials and certificates to his Lordship's Secretary, J. Burder, 27, Parliamentstreet, Westminster, on or before Saturday, May 2.

The Lord Bishop of Gloucester will hold an Ordination in London on Trinity Sunday.

CONFIRMATIONS. — The Bishop of Oxford purposes to hold Confirmations in Oxford, and in the northern parishes of the diocese, in the course of May; and due notice of the days of Confirmation will be given to the parochial ministers without delay.
