Huntingdon, July 5, I 813.
Fourth of July Celebration.
From the preparation made for some weeks past
it would seem that the Anniversary of our Indepen
dence was every where celebrated in an enthusias-
In this borough the several Sabbath Schools and
some of the citizens got up an appropriate celebra
tion. They formed in procession and went to
4, Cypress Cottage," above town, where the Declar
ation of Independence was read by A. W. Bust.
rucT, Esq., and addresses delivered by GEORGE
TAYLOR, Esq. and the Rev. It G. Dm, An abun
dance of refreshments were on the ground, which, of
course, received due honors at the hands of the
juveniles and all others in attendance. The day
was pleasant, and we have no doubt it will be long
remembered by those who participated in its festivi
ties. They returned to town before 3 o'clock.
We were not present at the celebration, and can
therefore not speak with more particularity on the
For the "Journal."
Ms. E emu :—Permit me to occupy a small
space in your improved paper with a remark or two
upon the present aspect of the Medical science.
A prominent object of your Journal, and of
newspapers generally is the diffusion of universal
knowledge. Intelligence upon all subjects is useful,
but it is peculiarly valuable in Medicine, because a
perfect understanding of the healing art is altogether
essential to the complete happiness of the world.
Whatever, therefore, tends in the least to elucidate
the principles of this science, or to excite new dili
gence and endeavors in the study of it cannot be
The science of Medicine is extensive, and much
of it metaphysical. It can only be thoroughly un
derstood by the collateral aid of information in va
rious departments of science. Chemistry, Philoso
phy, Botany, Natural History are essential to a pro
perelucidation of this science. The time allotted
in the United States by the various Medical Colle
ges for the study of Medicine is usually three years,
which period is not at all too protracted. In Eu
rope the time varies, but is generally much greater,
being from three to seven years.
No one, be their talents, industry, or advantages
ever so great, can possibly qualify themselves for
The practice of Medicine in a less space than three
years. The study of Anatomy and Physiology
alone is sufficient to occupy at least one year, while
the various properties of Medicine, with their action
upon the human system ; the phenomena and cure
of disease, Chemistry, Pharmacy, &c., cannot be
acquired in a less period than the remainder of the
lime. Yet a knowledge of all these it must be al
lowed is essential to constitute a well-bred practi
tioner of Medicine. When called to a case of dis
ease the physician must possess a knowledge of
Anatomy to teach him the healthy appearance of an
organ--of Physiology to teach him its use— of
Pathology to enable him to distinguish a deviation
from healthy structure or function. Then he must
be capable of exploring the whole Materia Medico,
and selecting from it a Medicine specifically appro
priate to the case. Pharmacy must teach him to
prepare this Medicine, and Chemistry intuit prevent
hint from combining incompatibles.
An individual who undertakes the practice of
Medicine without informing himself upon these va
rious subjects is highly culpable. He is ignorantly
and presumptuously tampering with the life of his
fellow-man, and stands very nitwit in the light of a
deliberate destroyer,' for which he certainly should
be held legally responsible.
The laws in Pennsylvania, and some other of the
States are greatly deficient with regard to the qual
ifications of physicians. Nothing is half so impor
tant to the welfare of a community ns the enjoy.
ment of physical ease. Without health all tem
poral enjoyments and pursuits are insipid; they
pall upon the taste.
4ilequato means should therefore be employed by
those whose business it is to guard the happiness of
the people, in order to secure to them as far as pos
sible the benefits securing from thisinvaluable boon.
When it is clear and decided beyond the shadow of
uncertainty, that persons born without talents, and
reared up without education arc altogether incom
petent to discharge the duties of physicians advanta
geously to their patients, surely the imposition
should net be tolerated, of allowing these persons
recklessly to tamper witlt human life for the sake of
money and property, which ought not to weigh in
the scale against existence.
The only effectual means for arresting the evil of
permitting unqualified individuals assuming the
character of practitioners of medicine is to interpose
the strong arm of the law, which might be done
without any violation of the principles of our free
Lfonstitution. It is presumed the essential qualities
of liberty in its unalloyed sense would be far from
desecrated by imposing certain restrictions upon ono
member of society for the good of many. The
law of liberty indisputably guarantees to its subjects
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which pro
per legislation upon this subject could not at all in
It is due to the people that some legal protection
should be afforded them against the knavery of ig
norant, pretenting practitioners of Medicine. The
great majority of them are unqualified to judge by
external circumstances of the acquirements of a
physician. Their education and condition preclude
all prospect of shielding themselves in such cases
against imposition, provided they encounter Eccen
tricity, Audacity and Presumption, which are qual
ities usually well developed in the mountebank, and
entirely essential to his success.
It is due also to the regular members of the Me
dical profession that some salutary restrictions should
be enacted to prevent the overrun of the country by
the class of practitioners alluded to. Certainly it is
not just that one sett of men devote money and
time and labor to become physicians, whilst another
class derive as great immunities front the calling as
they, without any of their outlay. Often owing to
the superior address, or greater presumption of a
quack, educated and qualified physicians are super
seded and the public arc injured, owing to inade
quate legal regulations upon the subject.
In Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts and some
other of the States the law prohibits persons from
entering upon the practice of Medicine without at
diploma from some respectable Medical Institution,
or a license from a board of competent examiners
appointed for that purpose. The profession and the
public are thereby mutually advantaged. The peo
ple can in this case have full confidence in their
physician for he has been weighed in the balance."
And the student of Medicine has greater encour
agements in such case to qualify himself appropri
ately for his profession, because the prospects of
success arc more flattering. His mind is not stored
with phantoms of quacks, penury and distress.—
He consequently omits no pains and spares no ex
pense that he may take an elevated stand in the
ranks of one of the most useful and elegant of all
The profession of Medicine cannot be too much
extolled. It has for its object the most noble end.
It contemplates the soothing of every pain, the
hushing of every moan, the banishment of every
physical ill from the human body. Its practitioners
are generally warm-hearted, philanthropic men, who
are ready to immolate upon the altar of benevolence
all that is.dear in life for the good of a fellow creature.
Dollars and cents ought to be and area minor con
sideration to the physician. His is a profession
which requires the sacrifice of ease, enjoyment and
health. No reward on earth can be adequate to
compensate these losses—the account must be col
lected in the great day of accounts, and it will then
be paid over with interest.
To blame,' an intelligent member of the Medi
cal profession with sordidness is to mistake him
absolutely.. All will admit that the talents and ed
ucation necessary to a physician's success must ren
der him adequate to acquire wealth or distinction
(if such were the object) in many other occupa
tions, with less hazzard or inconvenience; so that
this charge is unfounded.
A good physician is one who has been born with
the happiest talents, who began to inform his un
derstanding from his earliest youth, afterwards care
fully qualifying himself by cultivating every branch
of Physic, sacrificing the best and most pleasurable
days of his life to a regular and assiudous investiga
tion of the human body; of its various functions;
of the cause that may impair or embarrass them;
of the qualities and virtues of every simple and
compound Medicine. Beside these qualifications,
an educated physician will have added and continue
to add, the medical observations of all ages and
places to his own. Such an one may take charge
of life—none others ought. S.
