OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. Blindness and Deafness. (“ Oamaru Mail,” Dec. 15.) Professor Wallenberg is still kept busy with patients. Wo on Saturday received a visit from two persons upon whom ho had operated. Their names are Mr. Nicholas Power and Mr. James McGrath, both of Waimato. The first-mentioned had been deaf in one oar for 14 years. On Wednesday last lie visited tiro doctor, and obtained some relief. On Thursday he was perfectly cured, a grass seed and an accumulation of skin which had gattherccl around it having been extracted. Ho told us that he could hear better with the ear that had been operated upon than he could with the other. The last mentioned visited the doctor at the same time. Ho was slightly deaf in the left and totally deaf in the right ear. A growth having been extracted from the right ear, ho entirely recovered bis hearing. Ho told 113 that he could hear Iris own voice—a thing that ho had not done for 16 years. The case of Mr. Alexander Aitchison is worth chronicling. He had been totally deaf in one car for four years and slightly affected in the other. He is now perfectly restored, and was so gratified that lie today introduced a suffering friend to the 1 doctor. Mr. Aitchison tells us that he C'nfld only hoar his watch ticking by means of the diseased ear by pressing it tightly to it. Now, ho can hoar it at a : distance of a foot, although his car is stopped with wadding. (“Oamaru Mail,” Dec. IG.) To the Editor. ; Sin, —About Professor Wallonburg and 1 his cures. lam glad that in previous issues you have called attention to the work and remarkable success of the Pro--1 lessor in a few days of his residence in s this town. I only just wish to say that I , can confirm the truthfulness of several of ’ the cases mentioned by you, for I have ■ seen the patients myself. I would like to urge upon the people of Oamaru and 5 neighborhood the importance of having , any affection of those parts of the body 7 which be specially treats attended to at •’ once, or when he has gone they will regret i that they did not avail themselves of his - skill. Such men as lie are a blessing to , humanity. Hoping this may lead to tho 7 relief ox some sufferer or sufferers, I am, &c., i Ohas. E. Barley. 3 (“ Oamaru Mail,” Dec. 22.) Mr. Janies Gibson, a shepherd employed 1 at Station Peak, called upon ns this moru- - ing, and requested us to bear testimony to 5 the fact that he has been cured of .almost 3 total deafness 'by Professor Wallonburg. 1 He bad been more or less deaf for 30 3 years, but for the last 20 years his hearing f had been getting gradually worse. Ten 3 days ago Mr. Gibscn placed himself under tho treatment of the Professor, and has so 3 far recovered that he experiences no diffi- ‘ culty in hearing ordinary conversation. At the same time Professor Wallonburg ■ introduced to us Mr. William MfKenzie, of Kakanui. He had been so deaf for 13 . years that he had been unable to hear - ordinary sounds. On Saturday last lie i became a patient of the Professor’s, and , obtained immediate relief. His hearing is f now as perfect as could be desired.^ , (“ Oamaru Mail,” Dec. 29.) To the Editor, i Sir,—Permit mo through jmur paper to i direct the attention of tho public to tho i following. > At the request of a member of my congregation, unable to pay, and suffering with eyes nearly blind and inflamed many years, I applied to Professor Wallonburg for advice and treatment gratis. He, i wilb generosity and kindness readily ! granted the favor. I made the application because I had learned from other clergymen that the professor is ever ready to give his services to the poor when asked to do so lay any person on whose honesty he can rely on being assured that no deception is being practised on him. This person was under the cave of several medical men, but without any beneficial result. Professor Wallenburg has had the case under treatment for about ten days, and now 7 the eyes are perfectly well, and tho person is likely to be able to earn his livelihood, to the great delight of all his friends, whose lasting gratitude Professor ’Wallenburg lias earned. I know 7 of my knowledge three others who beneflttcd very much by the treatment of the worthy Professor. I write this letter without the request of .any one ; but I consider it a duty owing to tho Professor’s kindnesss ; and I recommend those suffering in eye or ear to apply to him whilst they have the present favorable opportunity. I hereby tender my best thanks to Professor Wallenburg for his charity to the poor. —I am, &c., War. Coleman, Roman Catholic Clergyman. The Eye and Ear.—Professor Wallenburg is effecting some raarraollous cures in cases of blindness and deafness. At his invitation we visited the consulting rooms at tho Albion Hotel, yesterday morning, when we conversed with two or three out of a total of about thirty patients present. The first case brought under notice was that of James Robertson, of Morton Mains, who was suffering from heavy films in both eyes. He assured us that for the past six years he had suffered acutely, and during for years of that period ho had been under medical treatment without receiving any benefit—in fact he went from bad to worse. Placing himself under Professor Wallenburg’s treatment ho specdly came round, and • yesterday could distinctly see a hair at the , ordinary reading distance. Richard Atkinson, of Invercargill, who had been treated in Dunedin and Melbourne for 1 impaired eye-sight, als bore testimony to , the Professor’s skill. Ho had been totally blind of one eye, the other being consider- ] ably affected, but could now distinguish the time on a clock a couple of chains off. | Mrs. W. Jerrett, of Riverton, was the next patient introduced. She stated that i she had been suffering from deafness for the last six years, and during that time , her husband had expended something like LIGO in endeavoring to effect a cure. Under Professor Wallenburg’s treatment she had so far recovered her hearing that, she could without difficulty hear a watch ticking. H. N. Bates was the next patient consulted ; he bad been totally deaf of one ear for fourteen years, the deafness arising from an attack of scarlet - fever. In England his case was regarded 1 as a hopeless one, and this was tho more serious since the remaining ear was commencing to sympathise with the affected one. He had only been under the Professor’s treatment a few days, and could now t
