By the present law, none but the real Physician r Surgeon dare attach M.D. or M.R.C.S. to his name and openly advertise his fees, as heavy penalties would be incurred. The public should therefore guard against impostors who impudently style themselves 'Dr,' 'Professor,' 'M.R.A.8. 'M.A. &c, in order to mislead the unwary as to their true character. None of these men really know more of the diseases they profess to treat than any person may by reading the above work. Fom long practical observation in the most famous Institutions of this country and the continent, the Author has had somewhat unusual facilities for acquiring that uniform success, which has hitherto characterized his treatment, and he refers with pride to the numbers he has been instrumental in restoring to health and happ.ness; whilst to all who need such aid he offers every assu- rance of speedy restoration.

THE MOST WONDERFUL MEDICINE IN THE WORLD I CURE IN FOUR WEEKS.—THE GUTTJE VITJE, or VEGE- TABLE LIFE DROPS, Protected by Royal Letters Patent; Sanctioned by the Faculte de France ft., have in numberless instances proved their superiority over every other advertised remedy for langour, lassitude, depression of spirits, irritability, excitement, fear, distaste and incapacity for society, study or business, indigestion, pains and palpitations in the side, giddi- ness. noise in the head, &c. This medicine strengthens the vitality of the whole system, gives energy to the muscles, speedily removes nervousness, renovates the impaired powers of life, and invigorates the most shattered constitution. For skin eruptions, sort throat, pains in the bones, and those diseases in which mer- cury, sarsaparilla, &c, are too often employed to the Tatter ruin of health, its su: pricing effieacacy has only to be tested Before wasting valuable time in seeking aid from instruments, electricity, galvanism, with similar absurdities, professing to set aside medicines, by American impostors and others whose boasted I distinguished qualifications I consist solely of their con- summate impudence, sufferers will do well tQ make fair trial of a remedy which, concocted on scientific principles, cannot fail.

The worst cases readily assume a healthy appearance whenever this medicament is applied sound flesh springs up from the bottom of the wound, inflammation of the surrounding skin is arrested, and a complete and permanent cure quickly follows the use of the Ointment. Rheumatism, Gout, and Neuralgia. Nothing has the power of reducing inflammation and subdu- ing pain in these complaints in the same degree as Holloway's cooling Ointment and purifying Pills. When used simultaneously they drive all inflammation and depravities from the system, subdue and remove all enlargement of the joints, and leave the sinews and muscles lax and uncontracted. A cure may always be effected, even under the worst circumstances, if the use of these medicines is persevered in. Sore Throats, Diptheria, Quinsey, Mumps, and all other Derangements of the Throat.

AN EARTHQUAKE IN ENGLAND. The unusual phenomenon of an earthquake in England has caused no small degree of sensation throughout the country. Slight shocks have been felt at long intervals -the last we believe, in 1852—but in the present in- stance the manifestations of the mysterious subterranean power were more than ordinarily intense and general. From almost every part of the country reports and com- munications have been forwarded to us describing the nature of the shocks experienced, and in the majprity of instances the writers appear to be ignorant of the general prevalence of the phenomenon, and express their curiosity to know if similar shocks have been felt elsewhere. In some cases, indeed, the communications of our aorres- pondents indicate a doubt on the minds of the writers as to the origin of the oscillations and noises they describe and, but for the unanimity of testimony from as many different quarters, we should have been inclined to pay little attention to such communications, and would have considered that the writers had been frightened jby the rumbling of a dray or the rattling of a passing train. There is, however, no doubt of the fact of an earth- quake having been experienced, and so far as our infor- mation extendi at present, it teems that the subtenranean movement was confined almost entirely to the western half of the kingdom, no accounts from the east,'north- east, or south-eastern counties having reached us, with the exception of some from the immediate neighbourhood of London, a selection from which we publish below. The duration and direction pf the shock have yet to be ascertained with accuracy; but, from a uewspaper poiat of view, it appears to have been felt simultaneous over the entire region from Lancashire to Devonshire, and from the borders of Wales across to Derby, Reading, and London. A zigzag line drawn from Liverpool through Derby, Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Worcester; Here- ford, and Taunton, to Exeter, would seem to mark the course along which the main shock or shocks proceeded; but whether it or they originated at the northern or southern extremity of the line, or commenced at some central point and spread outwards, it is difficult at the present moment to say. The times at which the phenomenon was noticed are variously stated as ranging from shortly after three o'clock on the Tuesday morning to about half-past three. The greater majority of the accounts give the time as somewhere between 3.20 and 3.30, and this ten minutes in all probability embraced the moments at which the shocks were experienced in all parts of the country. Whether a strict scientific investi- gation will reduce this ten minutes to a shorter period remains to be seen, but it is highly probable that such will be the case. In no instance was the shock felt for longer than a few seconds. A minister, on ascending the pulpit, said: Let us begin the public worship of God by singing to his praise tbe-hymn,' and, having read it, as usual repeated the first line- I love to steal, at eve's calm close.' The leader of the choir then began to sing, in a nasal tone, I love to steal;' but, having pitched it too low, he began again—' I love to steal;' but having reached the opposite extreme, he found himself again necessitated to commence—'I love to steal'—when he was inter- rupted by a cough. The considerate minister stood up and said: I Seeing our brother's evil propensities, let us pray.' THE COURT-MARTIAL ON COLONEL CRAWLEY.—The Mhow correspondent of the Times of India, writing on 21st August, says :—' Colonel Payn, Major Champion, A.A.G., with about a doien officers of 6th Dragoons and 72d Highlanders, 52 non-commissioned officers and privates 6th Dragoons, one Parsee, and two Portuguese cooks were by division order directed to leave the station to-morrow en route for England, as evidence in the case of Colonel Crawley, who also accompanies the party. It was not anticipated here that arr rmre evidence would be required than that already stUctcd; but matters would appear to have taken a turn lately, as Tuesday afternoon a peremptory order was received to the effect that every man who had been on sentry over Serjeant Major Milley, or brought into contact with him in any way during his imprisonment, was also to be sent to England. I shall not be presumptuous enough to say anything about the merits of this unhappy case either way, but I may, perhaps, be permitted to state that the extent to which the suppressio veri principle has been carried will some day cause a sensation even now the public is ignorant of one-half the facts of the case. In a late number of your paper you commented upon the great difficulty all along experienced in obtaining authentic information on the subject. Most true, and in the earlier stages of the case you must have been grossly imposed upon by some one; even your latest remarks on Lilley s case contained a few inaccuracies, and for the reason already given not to be wondered at.' DEATH OF THE SENIOU CAPTAIN OF GREENWICH HOSPITAL.- W e have to record the demise of Captain Thomas Lamb Polden Laugbarne (1832), the senior captain of Greenwich Hospital, on Monday last, at his repidence in that institution, in his 78th year. The late Captain Laugharne had seen much service in his time, having been severely wounded and seriously injured, his skull being fractured in two places, for which he received a pension of L91 5s. He served as signal midshipman of the Northumberland, in Admiral Sir John Duckworth's action at St Domingo, in 1806, and as a lieutenant of the Unicorn, at the siege and storming of Monte Video in 1807, and in the attack upon the French fleet in Aix Roads in 1809, end on several occasions in cutting-ont expeditions and boat actions, capturing a Spanish national schooner under the guns of St Sebastian. As a lieutenant of the Nereide he served on shore at the destruction of the enemy's batteries at Jacotel, and at the capture of the Island of Bourbon he commanded the seamen attached to the army. He was first lieutenant of the Boadicea at the capture of the French frigate Venus, and re-capture of the frigates Africaine and Ceylon in 1810, and com- manded the boats at the taking of a French national schooner. In the American war he commanded the Alert, 16, and after a highly honourable defence hauled down his colours to the United States frigate Essex. For his defence of the Alert and protection of British interests he was presented by the merchants of Newfoundland with a sword valued at 200 guineas, accompanied with a letter of thanks. He was three times gazetted, and on several occasions had the honour of sharing in the thanks of parliament. He was a lieutenant of 1806, a commander of 1811, and a captain of 1832, having received the latter promotion when employed in the Coast-guard service in. Ireland. His appointment to Greenwich Hospital bears date let March, 1849.
