There are 1747 medical men in this city-neary half the profession-who make less than £150 a year. Only 250 make 400, and 170 more than :500. If this is the state of matters in the capital, what must it be in the country ? Berlin, Oct. 18th Obituary. DR. PIETRO PELLIZZARI. ON Sunday, the 2nd inst., the Florentine school lost this able and accomplished teacher and consultant after an illness of several months' duration. Dr. Pellizzari held the chair of DermosypMopathy in the Istituto de' Studi Superiori, and in connexion with it had charge of the wards set apart for syphilitic and cutaneous diseases in the hospital of the S. Maria Nuova. In both capacities, as an expounder of system and as a clinical instructor, he had rare gifts and accomplishments, the combination of which rendered him the most popular and the most effective teacher and examiner in his special métier throughout Italy. Students from all parts of the peninsula tlocked to his prelections and clinique, while for years he had established among his compatriots the highest position as a practitioner and consultant. ' The Italian Ricord " was a title he was well and widely known by. His youth, like that of so many other Italians who have risen to professional distinction, was spent in an atmosphere of revolution, and in sympathy with the cause of his country's independence and unity he served in the ranks of the volunteers in more than one patriotic rising. The consummation of a "united Italy with Rome for capital " once achieved. he threw himself with ardour into medical study-ardour all the more intense for the interruption so nobly incurred-and speedily rose to the front rank in the speciality which became his own. He was a powerful advocate of the disposal of the dead by cremation, and had indeed for many years been President of the "Societa di Cremazione" in Florence. In the terms of his will, and in keeping with his lifelong precept, his body tvas on the 4th inst. reduced to ashes in the local "Tempio Crematorio." His funeral, which took place on the 3rd inst., was one of the most largely attended and the most impressive lately witnessed in Florence. The leading lights of the Florentine and other Tuscan schools, whether in the medical, legal, or literary faculties, were numerously represented, and professional colleagues from all parts of Italy, and even foreign delegates like Professor Moriz Schiff of Geneva, assisted in person. Notable in the funeral cortège was the large attendance of students of present and former years, and still more so the few survivors of the revolution of 1848, who, under the banner of the "Reduci delle Battaglie Patrie, " accompanied their old companion-in-arms to his last resting-place. A selection from his numerous papers and prælections on obscure points of syphilitic and cutaneous diseases will, it is understood, be collected shortly and, preceded by a biographical memoir, be published. Dr. Pellizzari was in his seventieth year. DR. JULIUS voN BEREGSZASZI. To students who have worked at laryngology or rhinology in Vienna the name of Dr. Julius von Beregszaszi is familiar. Those who were so fortunate as to be admitted to his classes regarded him with respect and affection. All who knew him will be grieved and surprised to hear that he died recently of aneurysm of the aorta. He was only forty-five years of age, and from his appearance seemed destined to live the full span allotted to mortals. His death took place during a holiday visit to Bad Zardpoort in Holland. Shortly after his bath he sank down before the door of his hotel and expired. Dr. Beregszaszi will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends. By his genial manner he had endeared himself to his colleagues as well as to students and patients. More than one thousand letters of condolence were received by his widow. .
