Dr. BRIGHT, F.R.S., in the chair.THE annual distribution of prizes awarded
to. the students of the hospital took place thisday in the anatomical theatre.Additional interest was imparted to the
meeting by the circumstance, that on this-day, was first opened to public inspection thebust of the late Sir Astley Cooper, Bart.This work has been raised to the memory ofthis distinguished surgeon by his pupils, at acost of four hundred guineas. The bust was
executed,by Mr. Towne. It was much ad-mired as a work of art, and also on accountof its being an excellent likeness of the emi-nent man to whose memory it is raised. Itis mounted on a pedestal of white marble,Sve feet in height, and embellished with afine bas relief, and has the following inscrip-tion:—" Astley Paston Cooper. AlumniGrato Animo.

ST. TnoMAs’s HOSPITAL.—The whole ofthe medical and surgical lecturers of St.Thomas’s Hospital have resigned their chairs.The school no longer exists; and it is sup-posed that the governors will remodel it, byappointing fresh men to the hospital, whowill be competent to lecture, and therebyrevive the once far-famed school again. The
physicians and surgeons must resign their
appointments, as well as their chairs,
LECTOR.—May 5, 1842.Many correspondents wish us to objectto to
the transmission to them in England, by Dr.Martyn Payne, of Boston, U.S., of his medi-cal pamphlets, through the medium of anexpensive post, without paying the cost oftheir transmission.
Erratum.—The title of the letter of Dr,
Dick, at p. 195 of last week’s LANCET, for" Opinions of some Phrenologiats on Phre-nology," read " Opinions of some Physiolo- jgists on Phrenology." ‘’
