THE EDUCATIONAL QUESTION. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 26 July 1856

THE EDUCATIONAL QUESTION. j ( To the HdUor oj the Kiar. ) | Sra,-That the discossioa of this subject de generate not into a " strife about words," it will be necessary to overlook much that is being written, as decidedly beside the question. Your remarks, for example, in Tuesday's issue may be very just, but the dispute about using school houses for public worship, is a mere matter of detail-the point is by no means a constituent clement of the Denominational system. To meet tiie emergencies of the extraordinary crisis which passed over the colony a few years since, it was deemed expedient to allow the worship of God to bc celebrated in school houses. But as the necessity dies away it may be desirable to alter | this arrangement. I am decidedly of opinion it I would be better to do so, but inasmuch as it is j impossible that these buildings should ever be diverted from the purposes of education, I can- j not see that much harm has been done. The real question, as I understand it, is...

CRESWICK. {From our own Correspondent.) Joly 25th. LOCAL COCBT.-Saturday, July 19th. Martín Carter and two Others v. Patrick Madden and three Others.-Refusal to fulfil agreement The plaintiff claimed two sleeping shares in each of Kos 5 and 6 claims at Sulky tinily, for furnishing. Defendants said they had agreed to give only one in each. It appeared from the evidence that they intended at first to erect whims to work the claims with a smaller number of mon. If this was doue two shares were to be given in each for providing whim horses, &c. This plan was altered by the plain tiff failing to erect the whim, and filling up the party with the rall complement of men. The case was dismissed. The court is about revising their rules ; when they have completed their task I will forward a copy. They have granted fron tage claims at Sulky Gully, as memorialised for by the miners resident there. A more suitable place is in the course of erection for the accom modation of the members. B...

THE STAR THURSDAY, 2Gth JULY, 1856. OFFICIALISM AND THE NEW REGULATIONS. THE oday in the introduction of the ] New Regulations at Sebastopol Hill, and j at the other leads in the neighborhood, of which the miners there have been ! complaining so strongly, was yesterday put an end to by Mr Warden Cogdon.
