A Medical Drift.
Some interesting correspondence has
recently been published in the Lon
don Lancet, between. Dr. Richardson
of the "regular school" of medicine,
and Dr. "Wyld, vice president of the
British Homeopathic society. It ap
pears from the correspondence that
there are a "large number" of homeo
paths in Great Britain who desire to
drop their distinctive name and be in
corporated into the "regular school."
The following points are made in Dr.
First That- the views expressed "by
Hahneman are often extravagant and
Second That Hippocrates was right
when he said, "some diseases are best
treated by similar, and some by con
traries," and therefore it is unwise
and incorrect to assume the title of
Third That although many believe
that the action of the infinitesinii in
nature can be denounced, its use in
medicine is practically, (by a large
number in this country), all but aban
doned. There are many accomplished phy
sicians of this school in the United
States. But we have never heard that
they were drifting towards the "old
school." The changes in the practics
of medicine during the last fifty years
have been wonderful. And no where
have they been more radical than in
the regular school. If the practice of
fifty years ago were sharply contrasted
with the present, we should perceive
how great these changes have been.
It is not likely that all educated medi
cal practitioners will acknowledge the
standard of a single school. But there
ought to be some common ground of
recognition, and some fundamental
principles which all could acknowledge.
Since the practice of medicine can
hardly be said, in its present condition,
to be on any exact scientific basis, and
new discoveries are being constantly
made, all earnest and enlightened men
devoted to the healing art might, with
out any sacrifice of principle, cultivate
a catholic and fraternal spirit which
would go a long way toward liberaliz
ing the profession.
The new relations which' public
men will sustain to each other after
the coming memorable winter says the
"Washington, city "Reporterr is one of
the current speculations here. There
has ever been an undercurrent of so
cial and individual affinity bringing -men
of different parties into special
associations outeide of politics, and-
many causes of repulsion between
representatives of the same -political
ideas. It often needs only some slight t
entering wedge-to break up old political
combinations and to rearrange their
elements in new ones. There are
many such causes at work thisvwinter.t
and the politicians are on, the lookout
for new bedfellows.
