The title of this well,known and valuable
volume, is a comprehensnve one, and fully
conveys the idea of its contents. It devel"
Pipes, as it purports to do, the "resources of
the Southern fields and forest; medical,
commercial and agricultural;" and provides
a complete "medical botany of the Southern
States," far more comprehensive than any
yet published-having, in fact, the advan
tage of using all previous publications-of
which Da. Poncm has made excellent
use. It affords practical informationiof the
most valiuable kind, in respect to the "use
ftl properties of the trees, plants and
shrubs,' abounding everywhere in the
tropical vegetation of the South.
All the conditions of this promise of the
title are ful8 in Dthe opa this copious
and mosy ; and, whether
wa no t Othe planter, the
peeath O eepe or the simple
lthisOUld be a household book
with all. Inriaef, it takes rank with the
abeolutely nleoSry bistories of the coun"
try; and where they exhibit little less than
the strifes, the struggles, the wars, and the
,miserable politics of society, this volume
throws us back upon God: shows us what
have been the blessings and bounties we
owe to'His hands; shows us where to turn
for resource at the hour of need; shows the
statesman how best to calculate the ptoba"
Dis poodca of the soil; the farmer how to
sva himaelf of its natural productions; the
-domestic medieiner bow to meet the emerr,
gencies of disease, from his native woods;
and the domestic economist how to find in
probably the most miserable weed, an herb
of grace as well as utility, giving relief to
his pains, and savor to his soups.
Conveying almost every variety of instruc'
tion on all these vital subjets, this volume
of Da. Poncssa was admirably calcnated
so meet the exigencies of the great civilwar,
forced upon the Confederate States at a mo"
meat when their materials in food, medicine,
metals and machinery were almost wholly
wanting; art and science, irrespective of
simple agriculture, was deficient in training
and experience, and when our people suf
fered from privations which rendered neces
sary the exercise of every agency to meet
the exigences of daily life.
The preparation of such a work as the
preset, happily occurred to the Surgeon"
General of the Confederate States; and with
a like felicity of judgment. he chose for its
the editor in whose able hands
achieed the most singular success, and
beame of general use throughout the war.
Da. Poacsa brought to his task all the
-essnials of study, science, thought and
medical training so essential to the work.
Tor 1g years, as physcian and surgeon, he
had dwelt in charge of the hospitals, enjoy'
ing daily opportualtes for experimental in
estigatIons in Therapeutics and Practical
Medicine. He bad made the best use of
these opportunities; of most incorrigible in,
dustry, his experiments were conducted
through the nicest details, and s.ubjected to
alt the most scientific tests. He was at once
scientifcally and practically naturalist; an
explorer of woods and forests; an analist of
dteb. roots. and herbs-gifted with a hap
4py ~ickness in discriminating them, and an

and qualities.

there is no book extant that gives such in,

this information, with minute directions
where to ind, and when to gather the ar.

that it is the very best treatise on this sub
ject to be had in the United States.
Some of our readers in the interior may
be surprised to learn that herbs, weeds, and
other such "tra"h," that they have seen
"run to seed" all their lives, should have a
remarkable value. Such, however, is the
case.
From XIX Century, July, 1889.
Treating specially of our medicinal plants,
and of the be<t substitutes for foreign articles
of vegetable origin; instructing the common
mind how to select, collate and utilise sub"
stances of great value; suggesting to the
professions and trades, and to capitalists,
ideas calculated to open new fields of profl,
table research and experit ent-this work of
Dr. Porcher is preeminently the most im.
portant contribution te science and art, to
the home and fireside, that has yet been
made by any writer in the South * * *
The work deserves careful study. The mer
chant, factor, planter, farmer, physician and
surgeon, mechanic-the representative of
every sphere of activity. will find in it much
that will gratify and reward.
Notices of first edition. Opinion of
Mr'. Ravenel, as expressed in a
letter to the author.
On the whole, I have been surprised at its
general accuracy and freedom from typo
graphical errors, knowing as I do from ex,
perience, how difficult it is for the printers
to be correct in scientific terms. The con,
nectiun between practical medicine and
Botany opens a vast, very vast, and almost
unexplored field, and your book lays the
foundation for its study and application.
It will take its place at a standard wora on
that subject, and in course of time will need
corrections, additions and amendments.
Oficial communication from Sur
geon-General S. P. Moore, C. S.
A.,-To the author upon the com
pletion of the task assigned him.
The comprehensive information displayed
in the preparation of this work has been
fully appreciated by the public, and very
flattering notices of its issue have been giv
en by the press to which it has been freely
distributed, with the request that as many
as possible of the more valuable extracts be
republished.
Permit me to say that your labors have
met with the approval of this office which
takes pleasure, whilst expressing its appre"
clation of the manner in which you have
accomplished the task unrtaken by you;
at the same time to compliment you on the
ability with which you have enlightened
the fltsda. and society upon matters, a
full nowledge of which is so important.
The work has been distributed widely among
the MDICaL OFFoxas.
From Southern Illustrated News, Richmond, Va.
We incline to the opinion, that a more
useful work has never been issued from the
American press. * * *
Most particularly do we commend this
work to the notice and acceptance of fami"
lies and house wives, who would not sup.
pose from the title that it contained any
thing that would be specially saited to their
tastes and wants. I'hey wtll discover that
no hook of receipts ever published is more
compact of serviceable hints and suggestions.
Indeed in this point alone, it is worth all the
. iqure Withins" and "Things Worth
Knowing" that were got up with such pro"
fusion fr sale in the Southern States It
would be difficult to tell what may not be
found within Its lids.
From .. W. Ravenel (one of the
most distinguished authorities on
questions of Natural Science at
the South.
The title indicates the scope of Its [email protected]
It is to bring to notice the resources of our
felds and forests, for medical, economical
and agricultural purpoges.
Dr. Forcher's previous researches and
studies had well qualified him for such aw
bors. His publications on our indigenous
materia medica had famIliarized him with
his subject, and enabled him to itse to -ad,
vantage a vast amount of material which he
had thus collected. Au extensive practice
in the city of Charleston and the ocenpatiou
of the Chair of Katerla Medica.i one of the
Preparatory Schools, gave him ample op,.
portunities of knowing and testing the va
rlbus resources of the profession. bott milne
ral and vegetable, whilst his fondiiess fur
the natural sciences. combined with some
familiarity with botany, enabled him to ap'
ply his knowledge to the best advantage.
Soon after the fafl of Norfolk, where he
occupied the p lace of Hospital Surgeon,
he was relieved from duty In the gield, and
under direction of the Surgeon-General, had
this duty assigned him. A better selection
could not bave been made.
