DEMONSTRATIVE ANATOMY. - One of the features of the evening exhibitions at the Fair is the anatomical lecture by Mrs. Dr. Young. The lecturer stands on a sort of temporary rostrum in the left middle Art Gallery, and by her side the complete anatomy of the human organism, life size, and so constructed as to be taken apart, exhibiting each organ, muscle and membrane separately. Mrs. Dr. Young's lectures possess this advantage over the jaw-breaking incomprehensibilities pronounced by profound medical professors -- for the understandings of tyro Esculapians she uses plain English, which, however unprofessional, is much more satisfactory to an audience, and don't detract one whit from her claims to good common sense.
