GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL.-A special meeting of the General Medical Council will be held on Wednesday, the 13th of January next, at 32, Soho square, for the important purpose of electing a president in the place of the late lamented Joseph Henry Green. THE MEDICAL ACT.-A numerously attended meeting of the owners of proprietary medicines has been held at Ander- ton’s Hotel, Fleet-street, for the purpose of adopting measures for opposing in the ensuing session of Parliament the insertion of Clause 57 in the Medical Act. Mr. R. Barclay occupied the chair, and stated that if the General Council of Medical Edu- cation succeeded in engrafting upon their present Act the con- templated clause its effect would be to render valueless some .62,000,000 of invested property, now regarded as a sort of copyright, and which, in fact, is the sole maintenance of some thousands of persons.

AUTHORITY OF MEDICAL SUBORDINATES. - The Com. mander-in-Chief in India, having submitted a case for the opinion of the Risrht Honourable the Judge Advocate General of the British Army, London, arising out of a refusal on the part of a sergeant to obey an order given by an hospital apothecary. by whom he was ordered into arrest, has just published the following opinion, which will be read with great interest by those connected with the Army Medical Department:-" It would appear that Sergeant Piggins was attached to the hospital, and that it was in a matter connected with the discipline of the hospital that he was ordered into arrest by Apothecary Lawrence, who, being a warrant officer, was not only superior in rank to the sergeant, but clearly his superior officer in matters connected with the discipline of the hospital ; and therefore, in my opinion, a lawful authority when he ordered Sergeant Piggins under arrest." And it is gratifying to add, that the Judge Advocate General of the British Army fully concurs with the Judge Advocate General of the Bombay Army, in thinking that any apothecary or hospital steward in the Indian forces may lawfully order an hospital sergeant into arrest for an offence directly connected with hospital duties. CIVIL SURGEONS V. MILITARY SURGEONS.-In conse- quence of the encroachments of a military surgeon on the prac- tice of a civil surgeon, a complaint was made by Mr. John C. Harper against Apothecary S. Sansman, in the court of the Commissioner Tenasserim Dinision, of British Burmah. After hearing the case, Lient.-Colonel Fytche disposed of it in the following terms :-" With regard to the competition com- plained of by petitioner, the Court believes that the Govern- ment, either in this country or in England, have no objection to their servants in the Medical Department having private practice, so long as it does not interfere in any way with their public duties, or that the knowledge they possess should not be made available for the benefit of the community as well as the personal advantage of their servants themselves ; and that the community of Maulmain can be very safely left to make their own selection of medical advisers, whether in the Go- verament service or not." ACCIDENTAL POISONING.-On Monday evening several men in a silk dyer’s warehouse in Mile End partook of some beer from a can which had been previously used for a mixture called "Springfield’s Patent." They were all seized with severe symptoms of poisoning, and one of them, John Herren, died whilst the stomach-pump was being used. What is the composition of Springfield’s Patent ? - BIRTHS AND DEATHS IN SYDNEY.-The seventh annual report of births, deaths, and marriages records that in 1862 there were 15,434 births and 6524 deaths, showing an increase of population, independent of immigration, of 8910 persons. The mean of six years shows that to every 1000 persons living there are 42 births and 17 deaths. THE NEW VACCINATION ACT.-With the opening of the present year the new Vaccination Act, to fur:her extend and make compulsory the practice of vaccination in Ireland, comes in force. All children are to be vaccinated within six months of their birth, and are to be medically inspected on the eighth day. For non-compliance with either of the require. ments the parents or guardians are liable to a penalty of ten shillings. Districts are formed for vaccination purposes, and the registrars of births and deaths in such districts are to give notice to the parents, and the Poor-law Guardians are to enforce obedience to the Act. THE SOCIAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATION.-At the last meet. ing of this Association it was decided that its next congress should be at York. A deputation had previously represented the views of that city. AN ARTIFICIAL TONGUE.-M. Maisonneuve, surgeon of the Hotel Dieu, describes in " Cosmos" how he removed from a patient the whole of a tongue affected with cancer, by means which he terms cauterization m fleches, so as to cause all the diseased portions to slough off in one mass. This patient, after the removal of the tongue, could neither swallow nor speak, but performed both these functions on being supplied with a gutta percha tongue of the natural size. BEQUESTS.-The late W. Spencer Phillips, Vicar of Newchurch, Isle of Wight, has bequeathed to the Charing- cross Hospital, St. George’s Hospital, Westminster Hospital, and the Brompton Hospital for Consumption each £200 free. of legacy duty.
