labors in this department, the profession in this country owe much of the attention which is now paid to the study of the tissues, both in a state of health and disease.

His, if we are correctly informed, was the first systematic work of any importance, which appeared on this side of the Atlantic, devoted to Pathological Anatomy. It has firmly maintained its position of favor with the profession, by the side of Vogel, Iłasse, Kolliker, Cruveilhier, and a host of others, and through the author's indefatigable watchfulness is kept posted up to last hour of the Science at the issue of its several editions.

Dr. Gross bas displayed much good judgment in keeping his work within the bounds of a single volume, and that one of convenient size. To the student of medicine we would say, that we know of no work which we can more heartily commend, than Gross' Pathological Anatomy.

Treatment of Chorea.—Dr. Barlow still continues the employment of the iodine of zinc in the treatment of chorea when complicated with struma, a remedy which he introduced into use, and to which we then adverted about two years ago. In cases in which there is no peculiarity of diathesis he employs the sulphate, but in those in which any indications of struma exist he prefers the iodíde. Besides its influence over the scrofulous cachexia. it is quite possible that the iodic element may be useful against the rheumatic diathesis to which the choreic is so close a congener. Good authorities are not wanting who would account for the frequency of heart complications with chorea by supposing that the latter is a condition very closely connected with rheumatism, depending upon similar causes, and occurring more frequently in those liable to it than others. A little girl was discharged the other day from under Dr. Barlow's care in Guy's, in whom, under a course of the iodide for zinc in chorea, a loud cardiac bruit had very much diminished in intensity.-[N. 0. Med. Nexts and Hospital) Gazette.

Nitrate of Potash in Dysentery. Dr. Tiedeman, of Philadelphia, has issued a pamphlet on Dysentery, and its Treatment. He says: “The internal remedy which I have almost exclusively prescribed, and frequently with surprising success, is nitrate of potassium, (kal. nitr.) I have giver it in large doses, which agreed perfectly well with the patients. Locally, I have ordered, immediately after each evacuation, no matter how often they occurred, injections of pure cold water. In very severe cases, particularly in hot weather, he has ordered injections of ice water with the best effects. As diet, I ordered milk, gruel, barley, rice-water, toast and water, pure water, and butter-milk, as much as the patient liked to take.”—[Nashville Journal.

Inflammation and Ulceration of the Sound Skin, produced by the application of a strong Arsenical Solution.—Dr. W. N. Brown, of Melrose, has recorded the case of a farm servant who was affected with inflamination of the skin of the lower part of the abdomen, the penis, scrotum, and upper part of the thighs, running on in some places to ulceration, consequent on exposure for two hours to the action of a solution of white arsenic. He


had been engaged in washing sheep in a bath composed of white arsenic dissolved in boiling water, and his trousers had become saturated with the drippings from the sheep. The skin was nowhere broken. He was engaged in the work for nearly two hours, and on going home, had immediately changed his clothes. In the evening he complained of pain and smarting, and the following morning the skin was red and inflamed. He had severe burning pain, and considerable constitutional derangement. It was a fortnight before he could return to work. The solution consisted of two pounds of arsenic, and a considerable quantity of soft soap to about fifty gallons of boiling water.--[Edinburgh Med. Jour.

Dr. Ch. Robin, of Paris.-We find in a letter of the Parisian correspondent of the New York Times, a glowing but just tribute to Robin. Of the medical luminaries of Paris, he is a "bright particular star.” To listen to his instructions; to see and kuow him and kindle one's own zeal by wito nessing his enthusiasm and self-sacrificing industry, are objects of them. selves, sufficient to repay for crossing the Atlantic. The labors of Robin are not known in this country so much as their importance claims. His great work incorrectly styled anatomical and physiological chemistry, prepared in conjunction with M. Verdeil, is yet to be translated. He has been for some years past engaged on a still larger work-general anatomy, heal. thy and morbid—which we trust will soon be completed. It is safe to predict that the publication of this work will form an important epoch in the history of these branches of medical science. By his admirers, Robin is often styled the Bichat of the present day. The following is the passage in the letter referred to:

" There is a young physician at Paris, whose example is well worthy a notice here. His is a name which is heard hundreds of times daily from one end of Europe to the other in the mouths of the most distinguished men of science of all countries. And yet he is a poor man, who dines at a cheap restaurant in the Latin quarter with students, and who lives upon a patrimony that would scarcely pay the servant hire of many of his colleagues in science. This is Robin the microscopist. He is a deathly pale, thin, serious-looking man, of about thirty-four years of age. His whole life is devoted, by means of the microscope, to the study, the demonstration and classification of morbid tissues. There is scarcely a cancer excised at Paris, nor a doubtful post-mortem examination made, that Robin and his microscope are not consulted, and his word is authority. His whole life is spent in the exploration of the dead body in order to benefit the living. And all this he does modestly, in poverty, and to the sacrifice of his health, for the promotion of pure science and correct opinions. He has, it is true, the gratification of being adored by his colleagues, old and young, of never having his name pronounced but with veneration; but it is such men as these that are neglected by the public."-[Buffalo Medical Journal.

The Retired Physician."--The readers of the newspapers for the last few months, must have noticed an announcement of the existence of a “retired physician whose sands of life have nearly run out,” hailing from Jersey city. This aged advertiser of a quack nostruin is said to be a young man about twenty-five years old, in good health, and engaged most of the time in writing for the New York Sunday papers. Such is the inexhaustible credulity

of a portion of mankind on the subject of remedies, that we presume this “ new dodge” has proved remunerative to the inventor.”—I).
