The Bradford County Medical Society

da, on Wednesday, September 4, lstjl, at 10 o'clock A. I
' M.. the President. Dr. PARSONS, in the Chair.

j Troy ; Horton and Hornet, of Terrytown ; Allen, Smith
j field; Turner. Mason &]Ladl, of Towanda ; Bliss, of I,e-
Roy ; Clagett and Moody, Standing Stone ; ivifl', Athens;

| The minutes of the last meeting were read and approv
ed. Dr. MASON presented an invitation from C. L.WARD,
Esq., requesting the Society to diue with him, at 1! o'-
clock. P. M. The invitation wu- unanimously accepted, :
and a Committee consisting of Drs. HORTON, BLISS arid ]
TURNER, appointed to inform Mr. WAUD of its acceptance, j
and dralt resolutions and sentiments for the occasion. j
Dr. HORTON offered the following :

The President then announced that the Society was j
ready to receive written reports of cases, and papers. j
Dr. ALI.KN reported a case of concussion of the brain
from a blow on the bead, producing a fissure and slight
depression of the outer table ot the cranium. After a

hours after taking five drinks of whisky, was left by bis I
companions in his own lather's barn, about 12 o'clock at
night, to get sober, and was found dead in the morning.
A port mortem revealed venous congestion of the brain,
and an alcoholic scent in the ventricles, and over a pint
of liquid in the stomach with a strong alcoholic, smell.
This case strongly bespeaks a moral warning, as well as
a caution not to leave a person in a like condition unaid
Dr. HOLMES als > reported three eases of Cbowea, two
of which were connected with deranged menstruation,
and the other following acute rheumatism. All soon re
covered under a treatment adapted to indications without
specifics, which is the true principle of treatment in all
diseases leaving specifics out of the question.
I Dr. llouET.a case of a little boy, aged six years, that
j hail nearly severed his fore linger wi.h an axe, excepting |
a small portion of skin on the inside. It was immediate- |

rule not to operate until the symptoms are sufficient to
Dr. ROCKWELL communicated a ease, read by Dr. MA
SON, of an inei.-ed wound ol the abdomen, with a portion
ol the omentum protruding, which tailing to return, the j
doctor cut off. with very little hemorrhage and then dress- \
• I the wound the man was ut his labor in ten days. |
The Lecture, Essays, and Medical discussion were post- !
; potted to the next meeting.
Mr. H. M. MOODY, student of medicine with Dr. ALLEN, '
read a very interesting paper on Sulphate of fjuiuine,
which reflected much credit on the author. This exliib- j
its the tight Hpirit in medical students.
The I'resideut then appointed a Committee, consisting
, of ,Dr.s. HOLMES, BLISS and IIOMET, to nominate officers
for the ensuing year.
The Committee on nominations then reported the fol
lowing. viz :
President— Dr. C. M. TURNER, Towanda.

I A Committee, consisting of Drs. ALLEN and LADD, was

Dr. TCKNKR, the newly elected President, after lie l tig
introduced to the Society, gave a brief address, making
some very appropriate remarks, and promised his hearty
! co-operation with the members, in all its interests.
Tlie either officers being duly enstalled, promised, also,
to exert all of their energies to co-operate with the Pres
ident and members, for the very best interests and good
of the society.
' Then, by the request of the Society, Dr. PARSONS, the
| retiring President, delivered the Annual Address, which
was very appropriate for the occasion.
| The Society tendered its thanks to Dr. PARSONS for the
i interest he had previously taken in its labors, and tor the
• promptitude and despatch with which he has discharged
• his official duties during the past year, and may the tho'ts
of his many virtues buoy up bis drooping spirits in his
1 declining years, is the very best wish of" the Society.
The President then appointed Dr. HORTON Physician,
and Dr. LADD Surgeon, to the clinic, which was announc
■ ed the next order of business.
Dr. LADD presented a case of cancerous tetter of the
skin, on the nose, extending to each cheek—lady, aged
about fifty years—had existed a number of years. Sev
eral irregulars had warranted a cure, but failed.No cure
was promised and no treatment recommended but palli
Dr. HOMET. a ease of single hare-lip—child aged three
years ; operation recommended.
Dr. MASON, a very interesting case of supposed her
maphrodite ; child aged two years, which was pronoanc
ed a male ; an operation had been advised by a quack,
j bu". the Society discountenanced it.
Other cases of minor importance were prcsentod, but
i none worthy of note.
Tlie hour of 3 o'clock having now arrived, the society
proceeded to the residence of C. L. WARD, Esq., where
I the members were received with cordial hospitality, and
partook of a sumptuous repast, after which the following
J sentiments were offered by the Secretary, Dr. HOLMES, J
and very appropriately responded to, viz :
" The Medical Profession" — by Dr. HORTON.
" Our Country"—by Dr. BLISS.
"Onr Host and Hostess" — by Dr. TTRNER.
The latter was, on behalf of the parents, replied to by
the son, Mr. HARRY WARD, in a few brief and noble sen
timents, which not only done lionur to the parents, but 1
also the occasion. J I
The Society then adjourned to the Library, which prob. j
ably is not surpassed by any private collection in the I
State, being composed of Literary, Scientific and Medi- ]
cal works, and spent an hour in the examination of its J
extensive and variable eollecfionsof works, among which J
are many specimens of the earliest exhibitions of the art J
of printing. And this vast collection, which lias been j
procured at an enormous expense, from Europe, Egypt, |
and in fact from all parts of the world, is rendered doub- |
ly interesting and instructive, by its numerous living rep- |
resentations of past ages, customs and times, that books !
After which, the Society re-organized, and unanimous
ly adopted the following resolutions, viz : J J
I. Resolved, That this Society truly and gratefully ap-
I preeiate the courtesy ot Mr. C. L. WARD, and family, and
I that we extend to them our warmest acknowledgements,
i 2. That the war now being waged against our govern- I
1 meut, ha been undertaken without any apology OR ex- I
| euse. and lias for its only object the overthrow of our free I
J institutions ; therefore.
Resolved. That we will give to the National Adrnini.s
' tiation our most hearty co-operation and support in the
I execution of all necessary means lor its entire suppres- >
sion and the total annihilation of fitaon.
The President then appointed Dr. HOLMES, Lecturer, !
I and Drs. MASON and ROCKWELL Essayists, for the next I
I meeting. The subject ol blood-letting, in acute diseases,
i was chosen for discussion , at the same time,
j Dr. HOLMES proposed Dr. JAS. DAVISON, of Canton, for
J membership of the .Society. Deferred till the next meet- '

This a new Machine, and has not before been intro

the straw, by a combination of Pitts' Endless Canvass
, Celled Apron, a new Improved Revolving Picker, and
the well Known Vibrating Riddle. It is a simple, durable
and efficient Machine, will thresh rapidly and clean thor-
I oughly, without wasting, all kinds of grain, it will not
choke, run easily and steadily, without jumping, and is
warranted to be superior to the common Rake Cleaner
| now in use. It remains only to be seen and tested, to be
pronounced by every experienced hand at threshing, to
