1086 - DTD June 4; ed: 2/2 - "This editor of the TRUE DEMOCRAT exceedingly regretted, that he was obliged to absent himself from the Supper at the American last evening; for he was especially desirous of the opportunity of paying his respects to a profession, which, like that of the Law, and that of the Gospel likewise, is none less entitled to the consideration and gratitude of the community, because originating in the sins of mankind,"


1087 - DTD June 4; ed: 2/2 · Besides the presence of Mrs. E. Oakes Smith, the principle attraction here in Cleveland for the present week has been the annual meeting of the Ohio Medical Society.

"Of this Society, however, we know less than we mean to do. But, suppose we should say: "Of one thing we are quite certain, and that is, that there are no Doctors' down East, 'big enough to sneer at a Medical Society which has among its members such a man as' Jared P. Kirtland? Some folks, we dare say, would not believe us; and it is very possible, that our opinion might not be well founded. But is there any member of the Faculty of the Cleveland Medical College who would throw up our paper, on finding such a sentiment in it? That is what we want to know; for a very prominent genleman of that Faculty did fling up his subscription to the TRUE DEMOCRAT, because we ventured to express our notion, that 'no Doctors, hereabouts, were big enough to SNEER at a Medical College having in its Faculty such a man as Prof. Gatchell; whom at the time of making that observation, we had, incidently, just heard address a class of Medical students, in a speech that thrilled us with delight, although we had never seen the Professor, and do not remember, that we had even heard of him, before....

"One more word. We have no prejudices either for, or against, any of the clashing schools in 'The Art of Healing.' On the contrary, if we possessed any knowledge of that art, we would gladly devote all to healing the sore differences which divide its professors....'


1088 DTD June 4; ed:2/4 · Among those appointed to standing committ-
ees of the State Medical Society are two Cleveland doctors Dr. Star-
ling heads the new surgery committee, and Dr. Newberry, the committee
on medical literature. This is "a deserved compliment to two most
talented and ambitious young men, who are destined to stand at the
very head of their profession."

MEDICAL PROFESSION (Cont'd) 1089 - DTD June 4:3/1,4 - The sixth annual meeting of the State Medical Society was held in the Medical college of Cleveland on June 1. Professor Kirtland, the president, conducted the assembly, while Dr. Hill of Delaware acted as temporary secretary.

Professor H. A. Ackley and Dr. Rickey, both Clevelanders, were elected president and secretary, respectively, for the ensuing year. Following this, some 35 applicants were admitted to membership in the society.

Later in this session, Dr. Buckner of Cincinnati read a report, advocating the appointment of a board of examiners for determining the qualifications of prospective medical students in order that quackery might be prevented, and the ethical standards of the profession advanced in Ohio. At the afternoon session of June 2, the report was adopted with only two dissenting votes.

At the morning session of June 3, Dr. Newberry of Cleveland read a paper on "Typhoid or Typhus Fever," which was, on motion referred to the publications committee on and then made the text for a lively discussion.

Professor Kirtland spoke of his observations of the various aspects of the subject of Dr. Newberry's thesis, from 1805 up to the present time, both in the east and in the west. There are not many doctors hereabouts old enough to have done that.

An unnamed Cleveland doctor introduced a resolution authorizing the society to offer three $50 prizes for professional essays.

Dr. Buckner called the attention of the society to the "Gum Elastic Stethoscope," invented by Dr. M. B. Marsh of Cincinnati. Professor Kirtland, though personally disposed to favor it, doubted whether the society should sanction this invention.

In the report of the committee on preliminary education, the names of George Hoadley, Esq., William Slade, jr., and William De. Beatie, Esq., were placed in nomination as candidates for the board of examiners.

The society adjourned to meet at the American House for a fraternal supper,

He passed in rapid review the several theories of "the healing art." He spoke kindly of hydropathy, declaring that it had affected some cures.

"As was to be expected, Dr. Pulte devoted more space to remarks on the theory of his own school, than on that of any other. But even in

Homeopathy, we believe he did not profess to find the excellence of
scientific perfection....

"We understood him to go for uniting the 'Water' and what he designated as the 'Movement Cure,' to Homeopathy, 'in one phalanx,' Homeopathy, at the head, and the Water and Movement Cure to support its beneficient actions."

more learned crowd than surrounded the bed of Webster in his last ill.
ness. None ever gave out more learned opinions of the cause or causes
of a patient's disease. A post mortem examination proved all these opin-
ions false.

"O for the day in which the art of healing shall be based on science, and therefore be the thing it is now named."


Medical Colleges

1105 · DTD Feb. 19; ed:2/1 · Yesterday afternoon we had the pleasure
to be present at the commencement exercises of the Homeopathic Medical
College. Our pleasure was derived chiefly from Professor Gatchell's
address to the graduates. That address, though unwritten, was yet full
of sterling Anglo-Saxon sense, expressed in words of the same sort.
Indeed, we have seldom listened to a professor whose words were so pre-
eminently "fitly spoken." And, unless there are among those twenty-two
graduates some very "homeopathic" specimens of a genus homo, Professor
G's address must live in the memories and hearts of them all until they
have passed into the sphere in which, it is devoutly to be hoped, there
will be no call for doctors of any school.

MEDICAL PROFESSION Medical Colleges (Cont'd) of medicine."

The graduating class consisted of 52 men and one woman.

Mrs. Nancie Elizabeth Clark of Sharon, Mass. was a member of the class. For several years past she has resided in Cleveland. She has a good reputation as a lady of talent and character among our citizens, and is known by her classmates and professors as an industrious student. She has demonstrated the fact that a woman may get a medical education in any of our colleges without compromising in any particular on those delicate feelings which constitute the beauty of the sex.

We are sorry that the professors of this college have deemed it advisable to exclude ladies from their classes in the future.

"We entreat you to organize societies for extending to us material aid towards the upbuilding of Homeopathy in the West.
