th becomes a valuable contributionto surgical pathology. We trust, then, that our readers will pardon us, if we shall ven-ture to add a few remarks to the statements which Professor Miller has already made. The first class of tumours,—the simple sarcomata of most British authorities,—werefirst accurately studied by Lebert, by whom the term fibro-plastic was applied to them,as is mentioned in the text, because he found them to consist chiefly of cells and fibres,such as are detected in cellular tissue in process of accidental formation. (Physiol.Patholog., torn. 2, pp. 120-160.) They are also fully described by Mr. Paget, in theLondon Med. Gaz., August, 1851. The latter pathologist designates them as fibfibro-plastic tumours, and his account coincides with that given by Lebert.

Anat. and Physiol., vol. 3. M. Lebert describes two varieties of the fibro-plastic tumour,—one soft, the otherfirm. The former, he asserts, has generally been confounded with encephaloid or colloidcancer. The tumour is lobulated, succulent, and sometimes as soft as medullary cancer ;but the juice which may be expressed from the mass is transparent and slightly yel-lowish, not milky, as is that of the malignant tumour; and though the consistence ofthe mass be soft, yet it always possesses more or less elasticity and tenacity. Thelobules, of which the growth consists, vary in size, from the 00393 to 0-393 of an Eng-lish inch, or ev
