religious denominations in its support, notwithstanding all the efforts made by it& opponents to excite hostility against it. In the Queen's Colleges at Cork and Galway, pupils, including a tull proportion of Roman Catholics, are steadily augmenting; the ordinary National Schools are still extend: iog, wbilst the National Model Schools (against which peculiar grounde of opposition have been recently started) are represented by the local clergy of the different religious denominations as admirably calculated to promole sound secular education, with ample opportunities for religious instruction, without the slightest interference with the religion prosessed by any of the children.-(English paper.
Queen's College Cork.-Opening of the Session of 1851–52.Progress of the mixed Collegiale system in Ireland.-Notwithstauding we have so frequently of late, noticed, in a spirit of natural exultation, the progress of education in this country, we feel that no apology is necessary for recurring to the subject in connexion with the proceedings which took place in the Queen's College, on the 3rd of November. In the Examina. tion Hall of that College, we saw on that day the middle and upper classes of this city, congregated for the purpose of manifesting their approbation of the system of education pursued within its walls since its formation. The importance and significance of the attendance we are disposed to estimate more highly than we would on any previous occasion. To all intents and purposes we construe the entrance of Catholic pupils by their parents, and the attendance of the Catholic chief magistrate of this Catholic community, and so many of our leading Catholics at the proceedings yesterday, as tantamount to a formal declaration on the part of the laity that they will manfully maintain their temporal rights against any interference whatsoever. When it is considered that a deputation from the Transatlantic Packet Station Committee visited this city yesterday, for the purpose of examining our harbour, the presence at the College of so many of our fellow-citizens of high standing is the more remarkable. The event proved that the Cork people, while ihey are fully alive to the imporiance of securing direct communication between this country and America, ibey are not insensible to the high er claims which the educational movement has on their support, at this particular crisis ; and that the feeling in favour of that movement is steadily progressing. Indeed, in the list of those present yesterday, we observe the names of some whom, up to the present, we had understood to be opposed to the Queen's Colleges. There is one part of the President's address to which we direct the attention of those who oc. cupy the important position of teachers. It is evident, as the President observes, that, on the secondary education given in the classical schools throughout the country, it will depend whether any advance shall be made in the standard of entrance qualification. It is very true, indeed, that private schoolmasters will find it difficult to introduce the necessary reforms, but if a few succeed in carrying them out, in each of the provinces, the general body will make stronger efforts to imitate their example. As to the Royal Schools of Ireland, the abuses of which have become almost as notorious as the Cathedral trusts in England, we are glad to see that something is likely to be done shortly to reform them, and make them what they were originally intended to be. Colonel Rawdon, M. P, has been for some time collecting all the necessary information respecting the present mismanagement of these establishments, and, no doubt, in the next Ses. sion of Parliament steps will be taken for rendering them more useful. In the eloquent remarks with which the address of the President concludes, we cordially concur. After two years' existence, during which the College has had to undergo the most jealous, captious scrutiny, it has continued to attract still closer the sympathy and approval of the more intelligent of the community of all creeds, and to disarm not a few opponents of their hostility. “Thrown,” says the address, “into the hottest furnace, the Colleges have increased in fullness and efficiency, unscathed, gaining, amongst the fires expected to consume them, the strength which now enables them io offer to Ireland the realization of that plan of University edu. cation of which, two years ago, but an imperfect sketch could be presented." Of the result of the conflict we have no fear. In this, as in every other struggle, the fury of barbarism and ignorance will waste itself before the cool discipline of civilization.-(Cork paper.
The Queen's College, Galway.—The following very gratifying statement with respect to the Queen's College, Galway, appears in the Vindicator :-"We believe that all attempts to arrest the progress of sound mixed education will prove utterly abortive in this country. The experi. ence of each succeeding day strengthens us in this opinion. In Galway, where the whole strength of the opponents of mixed education was put forth, the new college is completely triumphant. At the matriculations, to-day and yesterday, the number of fresh students entering the college amounted to twenty-eight. From the sound system of education adopted in the Galway College, and the acknowledged ability of the several profresors, it was reasonably supposed that there would at least be no falling off under any circumstances ; but we were not prepared to expect so large an increase to the number of the students who have already matriculated. The fact of such an addition to the ranks of mixed education in Galway is in itself a sufficient protest against any interference with that freedom of opinion which an enlightened laity will be ever found ready to appreciate and sustain. At the October examinations last year there were only thir. teen martriculated students, which fact renders the present increase the more significant, and gives a strong guarantee of the future success of the institution.”

Lectures at the Toronto Mechanics’ Institute.-Two Lectures, of which the following is an abstract, have been delivered in the Institute this season thus far. Oibers of equal interest and importance are announcede The first Lecture of the season was on “ Terrestrial Magnetism." It was delivered by the director of Her Majesty's Magnetical Observatory in this city, Capt. LEFROY, R.A., F.R.S. Very lit:le, the Lecturer remarked, appears to have been known of the earth's magnetism, even in its effects upon the Mariner's Compass, before the time of William Norman, a clockmaker of Loudon, who, in the 16th century, discovered "the dip," or that force which causes a magnetic bar of iron, when freely and equally suspended, to assume an inclined position to the earth's surface, north or south of the magnetic equator. It has been found that the dip is subject to continual variations. In London, in 1773, the dip was 72° 19' and 1839, only 69° 38'. Ai Toronto the dip is now about 75%, and is slowly suffering a small variation. The phenomenon of the dip was strikingly shown by causing a dipping needle to move along a magnetic bar of iron. Ar the centre of the bar it assumed a horizontal position, correspondiog to the real position of the needle ai the Diagnetic equator of the earth. As it was moved towards the northern or southern end of the bar, it dipped towards - them, in proportion to iis proximity wilh them. When over the poles, it stood vertically. Capt. Lefroy exhibited, by means of diagrams, the situslions of those parts of the earth, where there is no dip, which correspond pearly with the equator. Lines of equal variation, and of no variation, were also exhibited, traced over a map of ihe earth's surface. The mode of measuring the variation of magnetic force was illustrated by causing a dipping needle to vibrale, and then counting the number of vibrations that occurred before it assumed a position of rest. The number of these vibrations varies at different parts of the earth's surlace, and thus indicates the variations of inagnetic force. This mode of measuring the variations ja magnetic force, on different parts of the earth's surface, was undertaken by Humboldı, in his first expedition to South America. Humboldi's name was alluded to by Capt. Lefroy, in language expressive of deep admiration and feeling. 11, said the eloquent lecturer, we seek for an example of tha, ardour with which some men investig ile the mysterious and wonderful works of nature, we may contem late a young man, more than hali a century ago, laying the shadowy foundation of a science, which he has since pursued with such astonishing zeal, acuteness and success, as to have ir sused his own warm and investigaling spirit of observation into the scientific bodies of every civilized country; and not being contented with exciting a spirit of enquiry, he has succeeded in inducingihe Goveromenis of England, Russia, and the States of Germany, to join in one harmonious scheme for advancing our knowledge of the phenomena and cause of Terrestrial Magneslism. Thirty difierent stations have been established over the surface of the earth, to watch the changes and measure the inten. sity of this force-a force existing in the earth to such an extent, that if it were concentrated on one point, it would exercise an influence equal to that of eight thousand four hundred and sixty-four trillions of magnels, similar to the one he held in his band. This vast force appears to be concentrated, as it were, in four different poles, two of whieh are situated in the norihern henispliere, iwo in the southern. These poles do not coincide with the
