Army medical Board.

We learn that the Government has appointed a Board of Surgeons whose special duty it will be to investigate the sanitary condition of the army, and to decide, in individual cases of sickness among the soldiers, whether the patient shall be furloughed, discharged, or returned to camp. This is a step in the right direction. Had such a course been adopted two months ago, and physicians of eminent reputation appointed, there would have been less need of public hospitals then there is at present. We therefore hope that the Board will now set to work industriously, with a view to a thorough reformation of the whole medical department.
