When .Tenner averred that vaccine innoculation was safeguard again at the smallpox, the "faculty' sneered. Forty-five years later, the. world laughed at Dag-uerre's first announcement that he could tlx a shadow and render it as imperishable as aub- fttance. Even Morse's teliigrapb was regarded by thousands as a myih, until the first line was put up ii 1844. Now vaccination is universal, . daguerreotypes are as common as wood-cuts, and . we talk by telegraph with almost as much facil ity as across a friend's taUe. Such is necessarily the progress of a grand discovery or 'invention in an age like ours; and of this irresistible onward movement of the use- ful and beneficent in practical science, we have a atill more striking example in the world-wile popularity of Hulloway's great remedies. f we mistake not, thy are scarcely older as an invention than the photograph and the electric tele-f P D Yet tneJ re familiar to half the human, race. The : discoveries of Daguerre and Morse have not been applied throughout the fv bo la area of civilization; but barbarian and He mi-barbarian races, upon whom tlie light of Christianity has not yet dawned, have experienced the benefits of these preparations. - When they were first introduced to public notice through the columns of the; English press, about twenty years ago, ' some of the medical . magnates or the day scoffed at them, as their prototypes ot the days of Jenoer and Harvey acoffed at vaccination and the theory of the etr 'eolation of the blood. Bat bow is it aow? The pame. of IloUoway has been rendered illustrious by, the spontaneous testimony of countless mul-litudes. "., The voice of skepticism has been hashed, and the specious argument of professional dogmatist, confounded, by the introduction of bis fills and Ointment into the-medical institutions of the most enllgbted nations. v -u There -may possibly fcia hre and there s dog-ged dUciplinarian of the old 'school, who wont see what is patent to the, whole world some fossil speciiaen of bygone age of: medical bigotry, rho okMM hi cars to the great fact thatHollo--'way's vegetable remedios re displacing end s- vpersedinjf the mineral poisons, once considered - all in all; but such instances of -confirmed and hope less fold fogyism" ere fortunately few and fr between. ..They will, probably be remember cd wtiea IloUoway is forgotten and not till theo.
