The Courier. TUESDAY, JULY 9 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 July 1861
S3r Courier. TUESDAY, JULY 9 1801. It is difficult to conceive that cither much good or harm will result from tho labours of thc select committee appointed to enquire into the working of the Primary Schools' Act passed last sessiou. The composition of the committee is such that it is highly improbable, that they will return a verdict favorable to, thc existing Board of Education. At tho same time, should they bring up a report unfavorable to tho Board, thc report will bo regarded with a considerable amount of suspicion, as emanating from thc enemies of that system of education which tho Board has been appointed to carry out. The committee originally moved for by Mr. Moffatt waa ono of enquiry into certain charges against the Board, brought by a small section of one particular ch ure li. The oliarges were clearly refuted by tho Colonial Treasurer, a member of thc Board; and had the house divided upon Mr. Moi'FATT's original motion, (hero 5s every reason to believe i hut it would lmve...

Iiettero to the Editor. THE MEDICAL BILL. Mn. Editor,?I want to say a few words upon this bill, which I fear is about to pass and becomo law in Queensland. I am a man with a family, who never grudged paying my doctor's bill; but I don't want those doctors and their bosom friends to pass a law against progress in medicine, or one that would interfere with a practice of medicine different to that which now obtains in Brisbane. Wc all know that at present in England, Scotland, America, and tho Continent, tlicro aro hundreds of medical men who have aban- doned the only profession of medicine wc aro being treated to in this colony, and havo adopted the moro scientific method of treating disease styled Homoeopathy.

THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 10 July 1861
THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. Sir.,?The object of this letter is to desire tho earnest attention of tho public to tho pre- sent utter uselessness of the "Temple of tho Arts and Sciences" (1) now adorning tho principal thoroughfare of tho capital of Quoonslaud, and I trust it will elicit other expressions of opinion with respect to this real grievance. I have said "adorning," but I am not correct?far from being an ornament to our city, it stands a reproach to tho citi- zens ; a laughing stock for all arrivals from the southern colonies; a gloomy edifice throwiug a baneful shadow over the sunbeams of knowledge and wisdom. It is true that it answers tho invaluable omi of a " circulating library,".and possibly it may also bo true that tho "reform oommitteo" may perhaps favor tho good folk of Brisbane (if thoy will bo patient enough to wait) with a few " popular" lectures oro thoir term of oflice is completed. Such an achievement tho " reform committee" will doubtless regard as a great success, an...
