The Right Rev. Bishop Ryan, D.D., in moving this resolution, said the publications of the Institute had done a very large amount of good in combating the infidelity which was, unfortunately, too prevalent at the present time, arising from erroneous views as to the true results of scientific discovery, and from the rash adoption of such pseudo-philosophical and quasi-scientific theories as tended to undermine the belief in revealed religion and so also had the lectures ; and argued that such a central society for the defence of Christianity was of paramount importance at the present time, and referred to the comparatively small cost at which the Society accomplished its work, the average of the item for salaries for the last five years having been at the rate of £38 per annum.
