from District Inspectors

relative to the No. 1.-RETURN from INSPECTOR of DISTRICT 1, relative to the Religious Religious Denominations of the Children attending the Depominations

of Pupils. National Schools in his District, which comprises a portion of the County Donegal.

Ramelton, June 21, 1852. GENTLEMEN,-In reply to your letter of the 5th of April, I beg leave to state, that upon strict investigation, I find there are but few schools in my district which do not furnish fair and satisfactory specimens of a mixed attendance of children of different denominations.

With but one exception, I have found the attendance is mixed in proportion to the population.

That exception is Letterkenny Male and Female School, where the scholars, teachers, and manager profess the Roman Catholic religion.

My opinion is, that it arises, not from any opposition given by the Church clergyman, but because it happens here that the persons belonging to the Established Church form the more respectable class, and, therefore, are unwilling to allow their children to mix with the children attending these Schools ; but whatever the reason, this is the only exception of all I have examined, where the National System is not carried out on the united principle.

I do not think it necessary, therefore, to include in the subjoined table the names of all the Schools where I have found the scholars mixed in proportion to the population. I send the accompanying twelve, as fair examples of the working of our system, trusting that that number will be sufficiently adequate. If, however, it be not, I can, in a very short time, send a larger number.

In the accompanying form I have given the information you required—the number on the rolls, the religion of the managers, teachers, &c., and, in addition, the number of children capable of attending any school within a circuit of one mile.

I consider this distance affords a number sufficiently accu-' rate to prove what I have already stated, “that the number of children in attendance is mixed in proportion to the population."

TABLE showing the Number on the Rolls for different dates, the

neighbouring Population, the Religion of Managers, Teachers,
&c.

The statistics regarding the population I obtained from
the master of each of the schools; and being persons of long
residence, generally, in the country, they can vouch for the
accuracy of the numbers.

In the case of Newtowncunningham, Carrickascanlan.
Legnahoorey, &c., it appears there are a greater number of
children of the Established Church in the vicinity of the
schools than appears on the rolls; but the teachers of these
schools state, that a part of these attend no school, being either
employed by their parents, or unwilling to come on account
of poverty. These reasons will apply to the discrepancies as
shown in the columns headed Roman Catholics and Presby-
terians. The last reason, will especially apply to the Roman
Catholics, as they are for the most part through this county
very poor.
I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, your obedient servant,

R. ROBINSON,

Sub-Inspector.
