The Richmond Medical Journal.

--We have before us the first number of this journal, the prospectus for which appeared some time since in the papers of Richmond. It is edited by Drs. E. S. Gaillard and W. S. McChesney, of this city. A hasty glance at this number shows that it is one of the most promising medical periodicals ever established in this country. The necessity of a medical publication for this latitude is generally acknowledged. The Union is so extensive, stretching through to many lines of latitude, and embracing variety of climate, that it is not that a journal issued in one latitude the peculiarities of disease in a far distant one. The forms and types of disease in the South demand the treatment of physicians who have studied and practiced there, and so with the journal of medical science adapted to the same section. It should be edited by the faculty who know, by "theory and practice," all about the relations of climate and disease in the South. Every consideration of prudence and humanity seconds this idea; and we trust that the Richmond Medical Journal will meet with that liberal support which it merits, for these reasons, as well as for the talents and experience of its accomplished editors.

The Journal has a number of interesting articles, among them a valuable one on cholera, which is especially important at this time. For sale at all the bookstores.
