[Anatomical Schools]

A meeting of the professors and lecturers in anatomy took place on Monday night, (it is not said where), on the subject of the atrocities lately discovered as having been resorted to for the supply of anatomical subjects. It was proposed and adopted by the meeting, after some discussion, that the professors and lecturers of the metropolis should discontinue their classes for the present, until some measure should be devised by parliament for a supply of subjects under the sanction of law, and without the risk of giving encouragement to mercenrcy murderers. This resolution was accompanied with the condition that all the other anatomical schools throughout the kingdom should be shut up at the same time.—Globe.
