EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....At the Petty Sessions, Dunmow, on Monday, the 25th September, William LAUNDRUM and Charles WILLIS were charged by the secretary to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals with torturing a horse on the 22nd September. Mr COLAM stated that on the said day the defendants were engaged in carting bricks near Felstead, and in crossing a field the wheels of the cart got embedded in the loose earth, and the horse was unable to draw them out of the ruts. Annoyed by this the defendants lighted some straw and placed it under the belly of the horse, which though it caused fearful injuries, failed to cause the poor animal to move the load. Witnesses having deposed to the foregoing facts, Mr YOUNG veterinary surgeon, and officer YOUNG of the society, were called to prove the extent of the injuries, and from their evidence it appeared the wretched brute was covered with blisters over the entire length of the belly, each of which measured the size of a hen's egg, and the private parts were swollen to five times their natural size. They had never before beheld such suffering. Mr COLAM having pressed for heavy penalties, the chairman said there could be no excuse for the brutality which had been proved. Even if the horse had jibbed, as the defendants alleged, such horrible inhumanity could not be tolerated. Everyone knew that kindness alone would cure jibbing. He should commit LAUNDRUM (the elder defendant) to prison for three months' hard labour, and WILLIS (the youth) for one month's.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Miss GARRETT, (daughter of Newson GARRETT, Esq., of Aldeburgh), whose endeavours to be permitted to study and offer herself for a medical degree at St Andrew's were frustrated by the opposition of some members of the Senatus of that University, has succeeded in attaining her purpose in another mode. On Thursday, she passed her final examination, and received a license to practice medicine from the Apothecaries' Hall, London, having gone through the entire course of study prescribed by that body. The course includes five years' apprenticeship, a preliminary examination in arts, and two professional examinations. The first of these is on anatomy, physiology, chemistry, botany, and materia medica. The second is on the practice of Medicine, pathology, toxicology, medical jurisprudence, and midwifery. A certificate of attendance at lectures on each subject is required. These certificates can only be given by regular lecturers in recognised medical schools. Certificates of hospital practice and of clinical instruction are also required. All these conditions were fulfilled by Miss GARRETT. Her course has been complete, missing nothing. The apothecaries' license, which, after this full course of study, and passing the two examinations, she has now obtained, constitutes the legal qualifications of what are called in England general practitioners. They usually take beside a diploma in surgery, but this is not at present open to women, nor is the M.D. degree anywhere in England or Scotland. Miss GARRETT has thus done everything that lies open to one of her sex to constitute herself a fit and useful member of the noble profession she has embraced; but if this result affected herself only, she would, we believe, be the last to consider it a triumph. Her true achievement consists in proving it possible for any woman of sufficient nerve, culture, devotion, and intelligence, who desires to enter such a vocation, to do so in England with full professional sanction, and invested with due professional authority. She proposes, we believe, at once to commence practice in London in those branches of the profession to which she desires especially to devote herself. What influence the example of one so well qualified by natural gifts and careful study to prove an ornament and aid in the ranks of the members of the beneficent art of healing will have in leading others of her sex to adopt the same line of life, time alone can show. At all events, every lover of the free exercise of talent in the sphere of its choice will rejoice in Miss GARRETT's honours and success.
