Dr. On Cubist spoke at some length in explanation. We had feared, at the hon. Chaii man had declined on a I miner occasion to give him an answer to a question on this sul ject, that it was the intention of the Court of Directors to put an end to this institution, without reference to the office of superintendent. .—He had never accused the Court of Directors of not expending a sufficient sum lor education; I ut Lord .Amherst, in h:s address, says, "1 he endowments (for the puipose of e iiication.) that h 'd accumulated through succes ive yeais, have been wholly swept away by pu. lie disorganization, and diverted from the proper course." Now this charge showed at least, that formerly a great deal of money was expended to very little pnrpo^e. Feihaps, said he. Col. Lvshi' gton will say whether the sub-assistant surgeons, spoken of by the hon Chairman, an I the Nitive doctors are the same? (To which Col. L. replied they were not.) Then have I and the hon. Ch iim&n been sreaking on two riiflfeieut points. I cannot help repeating my opinion, that if a superintendent is not appoin ed to the institution, it will speedily sink to nothing, because wha is every body's lusiness is nobody's. The Madras esta' l'shment does not tear the slightest analogy to the Medical Institut on at Calcutta. ) very regiment has three or four Nitive doctors attached to it, and these cannot I e properly educated, unless schools for them are » stablishe.l. Except a fe young me:i who have gone through my hands, there is not one, sav Dr. Breton, who can explain to the N tives, in their own langragi-. the tenns of a.iatomy and jhysic. If Lord Amherst had given too large a salary, that did not afford a sufficient reason for getting rid of the office of supeiintendeit. It does not give me much concern to find that my motion is to be met by a direct negative. The Chairman has endeavoured to persuade the Court that I wish to cast a censure on the Court of Directors. I have no such intention. My only o'ject is to preseive the credit and character of the Company, and I am therefore desirous that this Court should act in such a way as to induce the people of India to look upon them as a liberal and eiligh ened tody of men. I was happy to hear what had been said in explanation to day. A few years ago I might have expected such an explanation in vain, and therefore on that account, at least, I have reason to be satisfied.

The original motion was then negatived, and the amendment unanimously agreed to.

The Court then broke up.
