Not illustrated. 1852 edition. Excerpt: ...and who are conversant with his many and varied attainments. The contest, we presume, will virtually rest between Dr. Jamieson and Dr. L. Robertson. We sincerely hope that wisdom far superior to that of which man can boast will guide those delegated with the great and solemn responsibility of electing the gentleman into whose hands the future destinies of this great national asylum are to be placed. MRS. C. CUMMING. This long litigated case is, we hope, on the eve of being sat: sfactorily and amicably arranged. The matter is in the hands of the able Qucen's counsel and chancery barrister, Mr. Bethel, and Sir W. Page Wood, who have agreed to adjust the existing differences, and decide what is best for the interest of all parties concerned. No proposition will for one moment be entertained by Mrs. Cumming or her legal advisers which is not based upon the understanding, that the late inquisition of lunacy is to be quashed, and that Mrs. Cumming is to be considered and treated as a sane and rational person. Mrs. Cumming is to enjoy, during the remainder of her life, the whole proceeds of her estate; the expenses of the late commission of lunacy are not to be paid until after her death, Mrs. Cumming agreeing to leave her property to her grandehildren. Should anything unfortunately interfere with the negotiation now pending, the qucstion of Mrs. Cumming's insanity will be submitted to another jury. Should this, alas! be necessary, we have no fear of the result. Mrs. Cumming continucs, by order of the Court of Chancery, under the care of Dr. Winslow. It is our intention to publish in the next Number a large body of miscellaneous matter, and analysis of several foreign journals and works.
