Our Sunday Schools.
T is believed that since the year 1851 the number of Sunday-

schools, of teachers, and of scholars, has more than
doubled in this country. In America, however, the
Sabbath-schools are not only more numerous and more

largely attended, but are regarded as of greater importance than in England. All who pay flying visits to that country—and it will soon be a sign of heterodoxy among Nonconformist ministers not to have made a Transatlantic tour—are struck with the large measure of attention given to this important branch of Christian effort. We believe onr American brethren are right in holding the Sabbath-school in the highest repute, and regarding it as the pet scheme of their churches. Our English churches have been too neglectful of the children, and as a consequence, we lose many adults who might be worshippers at our half-deserted chapels. The unceasing devotion of ministers and Christians generally to the Sabbath-schools of the United States is manifested in a variety of ways. It falls to our lot to scan many American religious papers, and there is scarcely any that do not devote one of the pages of their large broad-sheets to lessons, illustrations, and counsels for teachers. The existence of this feature of their religious journalism is essential to an extensive family circulation. Moreover, the handsome, well-lighted and ventilated and furnished school-rooms are a marked contrast to the delightful dungeons in which so many thousands of English children are immured every Lord's-day. In this respect, it is to be hoped that we are improving, if we may judge from the published accounts of new
