When I was rector of St. Margaret's, Westminster, Matthew Arnold was inspector of iny national schools. It was always delightful to see and hear bim as he exainined the litile children - many of them among the poorest of the poor - in grammar or arithmetio, or looked critically at the work done by the little Aunes and Mary Janes of the back streets. He manifested a trae dignity by the uncoinplaining faithfulness and regularity with which for many long years he dischnrged the comparatively hunible routine duties of an inspector, which must have often seemed very uncongenial and from which he ought to have been exempted by promotion or some f orm of national gratitude.
