TREAT.MENT OF THE PATIENTS. � Yesterday, at 12 o'clock, purauaht to notice, a general, and very numerous, meeting of the Governors of this flospitnl was held, in the Board Room, for the purpose of" inquiring into the rrnlh of certain statements which have appeared in ilie Mnrvirts ChrnjiicU^ arid other papers, relative to a Coroner's Intjuest on the bttc John Hammond, who died in fhe hospital." Among the Governors present were the Earl of Rosslyn, Dr. Holland, Dr. Chalmers, Mr. House. .'Mr. Nessy, Dr. Bell, Gregory, Air. Sleigh. Mr. Bebcr, Mr. Fuller, and other gentlemen of eminence in the medical profctaion. Dr. Holland having been voted to the Chair, Air. Ol-nmiwo, the Hospital Secretary, read tha minutes of the last Court of Governors, recommending the calling of this public meeting, and the adoption of other measures necessary for toe removal of any charges against tbe conductors and surgeons of the Institution. The CnAiuMAS inquired, the reculi of the corrcipo.idciice or. dered between the Secretary, the Coroner, and Dr. Bell, on the sub-jcci of UaJimoUd's cise. Mr. GuNXtXO replied he had, as directed by the Board of Governors, had a coinmonicaiion with Air. Higga, Uic Coroner, from whom he received, the foUowing letter : - " Cloisters, H'estminsier Abbey, July 28, 1825. " Sir,-1 have received your letter of the 'ZTth mst. I do r.olic-coUect what Is reported in the Moniing Chrm'icU of tbe 26tli. 1 have nothing to do with the newspapers, and seldom read any, excepting the Herald.   I cannot be required 10 anstter questions. " 1 feel much obliged by the Governors' ofler to heat tneifl have any compl&int to make. Were 1 in the habit of visiting patients in the Hospital, and I saw any ihin� inipropcr, I would not hesitate in bringing it before the Board. With respect to the case of JohnHamraond (to which yoti paniculariy allfide), 1 would recommend tho Commilieeto question his late master, Mr. Bailey, of Thomas's Hotel, Berkely-square, and >evcral of .Mr. Bailey's Bcrvauts, who visited the deceased during his confinement. I am. Sir, your very ohed/eot hutnble servant, " THOMAS lUGGS. " Joseph Gunning, Esq. Secretary." The Chaibmav said he undOTfood Afr. Higgs was requested to attend the meeting. Mr. GuKKiKO explained that that request had been forwarded to Mr. Higgs, but as he had no opinion to offer, and as he bad no. thing whatever to do with newspapers, he considered he could not be expected to make him.self a party in any investigation concern, -ing any statement which they published, for which they were amenable, and not him. He alsopbje.-tetl to attending on the coii. sideralion that be had only performed his duty as a public officer, and the question was not by any means part of his jurisdiction. The Chairman saggestetl the propriety of another application to Air. Higga for a copy of ibe depositions. Air. GiiNiJiva then read the answer of A/r. Bell (the surgeon-who was described in the inquest as having been consulted on the case of Hammond by bis friends, and to have given an opinion tantamount to a charge of gross neglect, and unskilful and improper treatrnenl by the surgeons of the hospital), which is as follows :- Sir,-I am entirely ignorant of the circumstantre to which yoii allude, unless tt refers 10 what 1 read yesterday in the Mcrnivg Chronicle ; nor do 1 remember to have expressed any opinion on that subject. '� Be pleased to tdl tnc of whom this Committee is composed ; for if the object is to icpel the calumnies eipress�l in the ncwj-papors, I shall consider myself bound to attend. " I am, Sir, &c " CHAR1,E.S BELL. " Mr. Gunning, Secretary, St. George's Hospital." The Sechetart said this was the result of the correspondenca nhich had taken place. Mr. PiTafAK, the House Surgeon,(under whose care anti direction the deceased Hammond was) here came forward, and hoped the Governors would by erery means or examinations in their power ascetiain whether the chBrges against him, iodiTtduaUy, and the QoveTOors of the Hospital generally, were founded in fact, or otherwise. (He�T.) H� sras most anxious for the fuUesit Invtjtlgatioo, and he was confldtnt that the result wjuld prove the (orgical treatment to here btm the same pursued in all inch cases'.' lUr.

He seemed to be negl-.'cied b^- his out-door friends, and money had been lent him to procure tea and sugar. Air.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
