Female Physicians in England. --A woman has, for the first time in England, passed a first medical examination. She had applied to the University of London and of St Andrews, to the College of Surgeons of London and of Edinburgh, and to the College of Physicians of Edinburgh,--but all in vain. Each of these learned bodies refused to allow her to compete for the degree which would have given her a legal qualification to labor in the cure of human ills, and finally she appealed to Apothecaries Hall, and having been examined in anatomy, physiology, chemistry, botany and mater a medical, which she had studied for the prescribed five years, was successful in passing. A further course of eighteen months study is required, when, if proved duty qualified, she will receive a license to practice.
