Wonders of Surgery.?At a meeting of the Sau Francisco Medical Society last evening Dr. A. Aodrel delivered a brief but very inter esting lecture upon the lesection of the sub periosteum and the reproduction of the bones of the body when disease necessitated the re moval of ji portion thereof. To illustrate this theory. Dr. Aodrel called attention to the case of J oho Bollett, one of his patients, who was present. Two years ago this man came to this city with his left arm in a terrible condition from white-swelling. The bones forming the elbow joiut were found to be hopelessly diseased, and the doctor decided to remove tliem, and trust to the reproductive power of nature for their reformation. He accordingly cut out about two inches above and two inches below the el bow-joint, thus removing thejoint entirely. In this operation the greatest care had to be exer cised to guard against injuring any of the nerves or sinews. The arm was then placed in a mechanical ap paratus contrived to prevent a shriukage of the muscles or derangement of position, and nature was left to do the rest. The thorough manner in which she performed her share was demon strated satisfactorily last night by an examina tion of the patient. His left arm is apparently as strong and flexible as the right. The boues of the arm have not only grown together, but a oew and healthy elbow-joint has formed. Drs. Gibbons, Morse, Bently, and others ex pressed their professional appreciation of the wonderful nature of the operation, which Dr. .Morse declared might be classed among the triumphs of modem conservative surgery. The old elbow-joint was exhibited, and at tracted considerable interest. It belongs to Dr. Aodrel now by donation from Mr. Bollett who says he has no particular use for a third elbow joiot. ? San Francisco Chronicle. A Battle Field.?Dr. Russell. the London Times correspondent, in his recently published diary, kept during the Franco-Prussian war, says that the day after Sedan he rode over the battle field, the grisly horrors of which passed all belief. Human bands hanging in the trees; a dead lancer gazing curiously at the head of a zouave, which lay in his lap, clean blown eff; a wretch,with theGeneva bade on his arm,stagger ing towards the frontier under the weight of a sackful of watches and gold lace?these were tome of the loathsome sights, Perhaps none of them were so bad as that of the body of a French peasant, seen one lovely morning, as the Crown Prince, on his way to Paris, led his staff out of Montmirail through a beautiful country. This poor victim of war, "dressed in a blouse, was lying off the road inside a gap. He had been shot through the heart, and bad fallen face forward. There would have been nothing to account for his death, but that an old musket, broken in two, lay near him, and that the band of his cap had a number, and that a strip of red cloth gave it some semblauce of uniform." Janet Hamilton.?The Edinburgh Scotch man announces the death of iMrs. Janet Ham ilton, the Coatbridge poetess, whom it describes as one of the most remarkable Scotch women of the present century. Janet Hamilton was the daughter of a working shoemaker, and, al though without education, the mother of a large family?she married at 13?and for many years towards the close of her life totally blind, yet contrived, amid circumstances seemingly so adverse from first to last, not only to store her mind by self-culture, but to produce po^ms and various other writings of no ordinary merit. About three months ago a number of Mrs. Hamilton's admirers, amoog whom were Lord Dalhousie, Lord House, Sir W. Stirling-Max well and Sheriff Hell, proposed to raise ?100 to present to Mrs. Hamilton. but her death has rendered fruitless the kiod design, except in so far as it has shown how many and warm friends she possessed. The lady was in her 7Sih year. A Headquarters of Loveliness.?Beau tiful women, the pure-and the meretricious, come here from every part of the country. As in former times, philosophers repaired to the lyceums of Athens to display their acquire ments. and as now no musical artist considers fame and fortune assured until the judgment of Paris be pronounced, so no woman in New York, Boston, or Philadelphia, or in the tribu tary cities in the West, can reign as either a beauty or a wit unless she has passed the or deal ol New Orleans. Hence the splendid ar ray of loveliness we boast of. At this season of the year they come from every quarter?the voluptuous Andalusian, the enticing grisette, the embonpoint of Holland, the sunny tint of Italy, the blue eye of Ireland, the red rose of England, the "lint-white locks" of Scotia, our own scductive Americans?all warmed and mellowed by the sun of Louisiana.?iV. 0. Pic (lytuie. Schools for girls that Dickens would have loved to paint have been found by the Scholas tic Register at Kensington, Finchley, Waltham stow, aud Waltham Cross, near London. Spare the rod and spoil the child is no part of their discipline. Canes, leather straps, the classic |)irch are their common instruments of punish ment. And what terrible wickedness requires such seventy? Nothing less than the heinous offense of ''nodding and kissing hands to gen tlemen." This is the only way in which this propensity in the youthfui maidens in the vi cinity of famous London town can be restrain ed. And we are moreover assured that "Every father should be thankful to those governesses who had been the means of checking maiden improprieties, no matter at what cost." These girls thus "birched," were young ladies of fif teen, seventeen and eighteen! The paper9 may well call upon parents to take their children away from such schools and place them else where. Fashion.?A Paris correspondent writing of the prevailing fashions, says that the latest style of opera cloaks are cut with sleeves. The tnuimiug is entirely of gold or silver braid. 1 be head-covering is a simple scarf of silk tulle, carelessly throwo over the head, and carried arouud the throat, the long sweeping end fall luK gracefully over the left shoulder; a cluster of buds nestles in the soft folds at the right Slue, and another bunch of flowers holds to gether the ends of the scarf. This style of opera head-gear is becoming to almost every luuy, and, although simple, it is remarkably at tractive. IJOHIXY CHOP AND cheap8food for horses AND COWS. uct 6 GEORGE R.
