W e rejoice, for our p a rt, that the members can withdraw their thoughts for a time from oar an­ gry domestic controversies, and from the strife often a petty and contemptible strife—of p arty warfere, to consider what thqr are to do and say, when the moral sense of the civilized world is affronted by great crimes Committed in the midst of the community of nations—when the sons of a country nobly strug­ gling, for its freedom, who had been induced, after doing all that bravery could do, to lay down the r ire driven from I the respect of their countrymen, are bntch- d in cold blood—when women are scourged at the whipping-post, and children carried off from their ts or imn high in t ered in col ;>areata or immured in prisons, and the barbarities cf :« of the world’s history are revived.

No member takes upon himself the office of extenuating, even by the slii famy of these proceedings, should go BO farther, we should feel that something has been done—though infinitely less than is our du- y to do—to put the brand of our nation’s censure on j,elties of Austria.

If it had been a struggle of despot with despot, she would have al­ lowed them to weaken each other with long and bloody wars, which would place them more com­ pletely at her mercy, and under her influence It was the insolent a ttem pt to set up a free govern­ ment in the very shadow of her colossal power, whioh provoked her anger. Nor was it that H ungary had failed in vindicating her nationality, which caused the general sorrow throughout Europe at her fall. W hether Hungary irenrain a part of Austria, was of little moment friends of liberty in Germany and in the other countries of Europe ; but it was of the highest import­ ance that her people should successfully aaiert their po­ litical freedom. W hen that hope was crushed, it was feit throughout the continent that the straggle was decided in favor of a b s o lati^ , and the news of the suivender of Georgey was received by the people from the Danube to the Seine, with tokens of grief and consternation, such as nothing but a conviction that the cause of Hungary was the common cause of man­ kind, could have called forth. It is the heroes of this generous struggle whose case is now before the Senate of the United States.

It was a well written and judi c’ous statement of tho objects which are aimed a t by the founders and friends o f tho now academy, coupled with an earnest and persuasive defence of the princi­ ples of Homa'pathy Dr. iJray took the ground, at the outset, that med­ ical students should be caref ully instructed in the whole science of medicine, and that too by free and independent teachers, who should not bo embarrassed in their instruetions by any pecuniary considerations Ho criticised the existing schools as one-sided and partial, and as deficient in that large and liberal spirit of philosophy which makes truth and not the success af a sect the great object of human endeavor He then showed that the doctrines of Hahnemann, resting as they did on careful experience and exten­ sive observations of facts, were worthy of the pro- foundest study of every man who'wishes to render himself an accomplished or a safe physician.

W e have long desired to see an American edi­ tion of this work, whioh, on tho whole, we must es­ teem the best o fthe English versions. Parts of it are certainly nobly translated, and the general character­ istic is that of great fidelity to the originaL Y’et w might easily conceive of a much better version, ft parts of this are feeble, drawling in expression, an clogged with disagreeable inversions. If Coleridge, for example, and SheUey, had taken the old Greek in hand, we should have had a translation which would have left nothing to desire. The volume is illustrated by the designs of F laxman in outline. Flaxman was as much of a Greek in his department of the fine a rts as if he had Bved in the most poUahed age of Athens. The beauty of his conceptions, the symmetry and repose of his figures are so perfect, that a ta?te in arf might be formed and ripened by the were cou plation of his designs.
