Obituary.DR. ANDREW ANDERSON.
THE ranks of the profession in Glasgow have lately beenthinned by death; but few of those carried to the rear willbe more poignantly regretted than Dr. Andrew Anderson,who died on Friday, the 28th ult., in the fifty-third year ofhis age. The deceased gentleman was a son of the lateJames Anderson, Esq., Manager of the Union BankingCompany of Scotland, and, consequently, a great-grandsonof the distinguished founder of the Andersonian University- an institution in which the late Doctor held the Chair ofPractice of Physic for well-nigh twenty years. He gradu-ated in Medicine at the University of Glasgow in 1839, andwas elected Fellow of the Faculty of Physicians and Sur-geons of the same city in 1840. His contributions to the
literature of the profession were " Ten Lectures introduc-tory to the Study of Fever ;" " Heads of Lectures on thePractice of Medicine;5’ and several papers on a Oph-
thalmia," "Scurvy," Valvular Disease of the Hea.rt," &c.,in the Edinburgh Medical Journal. He filled the posts ofsurgeon to the Eye Infirmary and assessor to one of th2medical classes in the University of Glasgow ; while onlytwo years ago he ’was elected President of the Faculty ofPhysicians and Surgeons. In this position, as well as in hisrapidly-increasiJ2g" practice as one of the leading consultingphysicians of Glasgow and the West of Scotland, his scien-tific and general acquirements were winning for him anesteem which advancing years might prolong, but could not’diminish. He leaves a widow and son to deplore a losswhich will be keenly felt by the many who knew him as anable man, an accomplished physician, and a genial andsteadfast friend. a
COLLEGE OF SURGEONS.
WE understand that at the last meeting of the Councilof the College, Mr. John Simon gave notice of the followingimportant motion, which will come on for discussion in duecourse on Thursday next:—" That, for the future, in theopinion of this Council, the two omces of examiner andcouncillor of the College ought, as far as practicable, to bemade disqualifications each for the other, and that a com-mittee, with power to take legal advice, be appointed toconsider and report to the Council as to the steps by whicheffect may be given to this principle, prospectively, as vacan-cies occur: ’ We need hardly say that this resolution, if
carried, will cut at the root of one of the greatest abuses ofthe College, against which we have for years protested.
