Hill o» Hsrma.—About 10 months ago. the at-teniion of one of the Editors of this Journal was called to Dr. Hull's New Patent Hinge 1 russ, by the following circumstance : An eminent merchant from Charleston had been under our care, during a few weeks, for an affection of his bead. Ün taking leave he observed that he thought it a duty, which he owed to the intereits of humanity, to make known to us the great advantages he htd experienced from the use of " the New York trus^." He had oeen alflictcd with an inguinal hernia several years, for which h»- had coiisulttd many Surgeons in this Cor.nVry and in Europe, and applied every kind of truss that could be obtained, without being able to prevent thr disease from returning on the slighiest exertion. A few months before ! e ca.-ne under our notic, he hail consulted l>r. Hull, in New VorV, wiio aoiv'ted the new hinge truss w th *uch pTfeci suci ess «hat no descent of the hernia had eve' uf erwtrds occurreu. 1 he most interesting -.irr.um'.tance in »nc case, howeser, was, thai no ir>cí>r.veinence had been experienced from the use of tbe instrument, wiiich the ^entlcrrín recon'me.i.ded to us as by far the most exCfllent one that had ever been applied an his ptrson. The wartti und urgent recommendation of our patient induceii us to ptocure a Rum-ber of the iniitruments thus aliuded to, f .f the purpos<.  giving thtma fait tiiat under onr own immediate obiervation.
