COVENTRY RELIGIOUS AND USEFUL KNOWLEDGE SOCIETY.

SIR, -Allow me, through the medium of your valuable journal, to direct the attention of the public to the origin and formation of an institution lately established in this city, having for its object the providing for the workingclasses the means of obtaining all necessary and useful knowledge upon religious principles.

This Society originated with the teachers of the Sunday school in Trinity parish. In that school there are twelve hundred children, and it is conducted, under the direction of the clergy of the parish, chiefly by persons who volunteer their services, having been themselves educated in the school. Of these there are between fifty and sixty in number, who are anxious for their own improvement, but found that the only Society open to them was the Mechanics' Institute, where they stood a chance of having those principles in which they had been educated undermined by their associates, while they could not obtain the religious works of which they stood in need in order to defend the church from the attacks constantly made upon it by persons in their own line of life. They accordingly waited on the Rev. W. F. Hook, the vicar, and proposed to him the adoption of some such plan as that upon which this Society is conducted. He immediately acceded to the proposition, obtained the Bishop's sanction, and the support of the neighbouring clergy.

Such was the origin of this Institution, and it may be considered as the result of the inculcation of those sound church principles which the clergy in this city uniformly preach.

The Bishop is of course President of the Society, and the Archdeacon of Coventry its Vice-President; among its members and friends are several noblemen, and nearly all the clergy in and near the city.

With respect to the objects of the Society, they cannot be more ably shewn than by transcribing the address at the head of the catalogue :“The object of this Institution is to afford to its members the means of obtaining all useful knowledge, by establishing a library by organizing classes for mutual instruction, and by procuring the delivery of occasional lectures on those branches of science which require the exhibition of experiments for their illustration.

To the studious and industrious an opportunity will thus be provided of raising themselves to a respectable station in society, while society itself may be improved by their exertions. But since man is an immortal being, to whom religious knowledge is of paramount importance,—and since the same authority which commands us not to be slothful in business, enjoins us to be ready alwags to give an answer to every man that asketh us a reason of the hope that is in us with meekness and reverence, -while no species of knowledge calculated to benefit its members will be neglected,-instruction in the faith and discipline of the Christian church is recognised as a primary object.

To assist in this desirable work, the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge have presented this Institution with books from the Society's catalogue to the amount of 25l. which is considered the basis of a library, to which the committee add, from time to time, such works as they consider most conducive to the ends for which this Institution has been formed.

Thus, while no species of knowledge calculated to benefit its members will be neglected, the most useful of all knowledge, “religious knowledge," is the grand distinguishing feature of this Society, to imbue the mind with that wisdom from above, the highest and holiest, adapted to all states, and attainable by all capacities, endeavouring not less to induce habits of social feeling, of order, of loyalty, and unobtrusive industry, to which valuable qualifications, it must be admitted, this age does by no means seriously incline us. While, therefore, our library is well stored with theological works, and those of the best character, and the reading of them recommended to our members, still they are only recommended, and it remains with them to choose between such works and others purely literary and scientific. The reading-room is well
