8. As the accuracy of the Returns published by our Alleged inaccuauthority, in our various Reports, of the number of racy in the Rechildren on the rolls, continues to be questioned, we by the Commisdeem it necessary to repeat the statement made in our sioners of the last Report, viz., that “these Returns are furnished to the children on us half-yearly by the Patrons or Managers of the the rolls. schools; that they contain the names of all the children who have been in attendance for any portion of each half-year; and that the names of the Patrons or Managers are affixed to the Returns, certifying that they have examined the class-rolls, and found them to be correct.
