Earthquakes In tbe Weit Indies.
WASHINGTON. December ll.-At two o'clock this
afternoon Secretary Welles received a dispatch
from Thomas Savage, acting Consul-General at
Havana, dated December 10, in which he says,
"From our Consul in Jamaica we have further
newB of the earthquakes at St. Thomas, Tortola,
and St. Croix. The earthquake began November
18, and continued until Monday the 20th. The
destruction of lives and property was immense.

members of the last legislature.

advised moderation and foibearance in legislation,
and in the matter of disfranchisement, not to go
beyond the Reconstruction acts.
The temper of the Conservative Convention

of the war as final; but earnest opposition to the
State being under tho control of the colored race.

Stuart, of Augusta county, was elected President.

the war we were assured that, upon the repeal o
the Ordinance of Secession, the repudiation of thi

Afluir? in Alabama.
MONTGOMERY, December ll.-Governor Patter?
son perfected financial arrangements in New York
for paying the interest ou tho foreign debt of Alo
bania due January 1,18G8, and has also secured
an extension ol' time for the paymetit of tho tem?
porary loan heretofore negotiated in New York,
until the same can probably bo paid from collec?
tion of taxes, which avoids tho necessity for
the sale of State bonds under the present depressed
condition of Southern securities.
Messrs. Henry C. Sotnplo, of Montgomery, Jo?
seph H. Speed, ol Perry, ami eleven other Conser?
vativo Republican members of the Reconstruction
Convention, have published a protest against tho
constitution, which ably vindicates their position.
They assume that the actiou of thc Convention is
in opposition to tho sentiment of the Northern
peoples, as expressed in the recent elections, and
that tho constitution adopted violates tho condi?
tions of the formation of the Republican party in
Alabama, by transcending the requirements of the
Reconstruction acts and adding features of pro?
scription and disfranchisement uot authorized by
tho measures. They believe the Northern people
will not permit the power of their government to
bo directed to the abasement and degradation of
the white population of tho South, or that they will
sentouco thc white race of the-South to be the ser?
vants of their former slaves, oven aa a punishment
for rebellion. They argue that the civil liberty of the
Northern people will be endangered by the con?
tinued exercise of a pro-consular rule maintained
by force over an impoverished and ruined people.
The South admits the thoroughness of their con?
quest, but trusts to thc magnanimity of the con?
queror, and appeals now to the tribunal of a last
resort-the "people. The political power of the
blacks is coveted, under tho proposed system of
suffrage, by political adventurers, who have no in?
terest in common with tho Southern people, as a
weapon of offence, to be wielded for the accom?
plishment of their selfish schemes of personal
aggrandizement. This race will readily surreudor
itself to tho arts and intrigues of designing per?
sons, who flatter their vanity and encourago them
in a jealous bate of tho white inhabitants of the
State. The colored delegates in the Convention
moved as subserviently at the beck of their Radi?
cal managers as ever slaves did at tho command
of their masters. Tho amendment to the Bill of
Rights, introduced by Keffer, that common car?
riers should make no distinction between citizens
of tho State, designed to secure to the colored
people seats at table and berths with whites on
steamboats, at hotels, and on cars, aroused con?
siderable opposition, and. threatening to produce
serious discord in thc Convention, was withdrawn
by its authors and advocates; but thc colored
delegates, the present members, we are informed,
obliged tho Radical majority lo premise them that
the legislature should and would carry it into
effect. The address alludes to the fact that the
Convention refused to pr?vido separate schools
for the whites and blacks, and simply provided in
tho constitution for tho establishment of one or
moro schools in each school district, by which, if
only one school should be established in a district,
children of both races must attend thc same school.
One ol tho standing committees unanimously re?
ported an article of tho constitution prohibiting
intermarriage of white and blacks, which was de?
feated in deference to the sensibilities of the color?
ed members, many members of tho committee that
made tho report receding from their position and
voting to lay the report on the table. The signers
of the address further declare that, entertaining
the views they do, they owe it as a duty to tho
people to warn them against lending themselves
to the ratification of the constitution. They know
not what fate may be iu store for the poople, but
it can scarcely be worse than that which they will
bring on themselves by aiding in carrying the
constitution into effect.

The Leading National Issue.
The New York Herald thinks that the popular
reaction at the North puts the Radical party under
the necessity of hurrying np their work of South?
ern reconstruction on tho basia of negro suffrage
and white disfranchisements, in order that the ten
outside States may be restored in season to turn
the seale of the coming Presidential election. The
Wo expect to seo this purpose carried out, and
when carried out wo expect a Northern reaction
hardly less decisive than that which foreshadowed
tho speedy annihilation of the Democratic white
oligarchy of thc South in the first election of
Abraham Lincoln to the White lions/?.
There is something so repulsive to tho Amorcan
mind, so antagonistic to the genius, tho spirit and
the manifest destiny of our political and social
system, ic tins thing of a Southern negro balance
1 ot power, especially as it is established on white
disfranchisements, that it cannot last. It is a
compound of Asiatic despotism andAfrieau barba?
rism so monstrous that its first submission to the
general verdict ut the country will result iu a j mo?
ment decreeing the authority and the instruments
for its overthrow.
The World thus indicates tho Democratic doc?
The fuudamental doctrine ol the Democratic
party in relation to the suffrago is, that its r?gu?
lation belongs solely to the States, and that it is
an impudent outrage upon their rights for other
States to assume to intermeddle.
The World alludes to the fact that tho negroes
in New York vote on a property qualification or two
hundred and fifty dollars, and says :
If tho people of any other State choose to adopt
this policy of negro auftrage with a property quali?
fication, it would be HS absurd lor us to object as it
is tor the people of tue North to insist on univer?
sal negro suffrage in the South while rejecting it
The same paper refers to an arrangement it sug?
gested just after thc election, to be effected by a
conference of Southern Republicans and Northern
Democrats, which was in substance that the South
might concede qualified negro suffrage, in ex?
change for ?inmediato restorat on to all its rights.
The World says it is now satisfied that the temper
of the Republican party is such as to render such
an arrangement impossible. Says the World :
As the Republicans scorn the suggestion there
is no reason why anybody else should consider it.
They refuse to capitulate on conditions. Nothing
remains but lo storm their works and exercise all
tho lights of conquerors.
It admonishes the Republicans "that thoir ne?
gro suffrage reconstruction will not be permitted
It is very evident that negro suffrage is now the
leading national issue, and that thc Conservatives
of the North will all bo arrayed against it, especi?
ally as embodied in the Reconstruction act. It is
admitted that Congress may insist upon carrying
out its present policy so as to get the support of
the Southern negroes in the approaching Presiden?
tial election, but the Conservativo programme is
to repeal i* as soon as a Conservative Congress
shall be chosen. It will be "annihilated." says
tho Herald. "It will not be permitted to stand,"
says the World.

THE PURCHASE OF ALASKA-(lOV. WORTH AND FER?
NANDO WOOD -HOW TO OUST A COPPERHEAD
Tho Washington correspondent of the Richmond
Dispatch telegraphs on Monday night:
In the House to-day was discussed the very im?
portant question how' far a treaty with a foreign
power is operative when it has received tho ap?
proval of a foreign government and our Executive
and Senato and awaits the action of tho Houso of
Representatives in the matter of appropriation of
funds to pay purchase money. Donate was pro?
voked by a proposition to rcler to thc committee
the President's mcssago so far as it re?
lates to tho treaty for tho purchase of Wal
russia. Without * an appropriation to pay the
amount agreed upon, thu treaty cannot be exe?
cuted; and it appears to be the almost unani?
mous opinion of the members of tho House
that, inasmuch as all bills for raising revenue shall
originnte in the House, it is within the province of
that branch to considor and decide upon tho
merits of a treaty in order to decide if appropria?
tion shall be made; which virtually gives tho
Houso supervisory control over both the Execu?
tive and Senate in the ratification of troaties. Not?
withstanding tho tenacity evinced in maintaining
this ground, it would appear, from private con?
versations with members of tho House, that a
large majority of its members are in favor of ap?
propriating the funds necessary to consummate
our treaty with Russia.
Governor Worth, of North Carolina, arrived here
to-day, and had an interview with the President.
Fernando Wood, having got through tho strifo
for the mayoralty of New York, has arrived, and
was in his seat in the House to-day.
Further testimony is to be taken before the
Committee on Elections can decide who is entitled
to the soat representing thc Ninth District of
Kentucky, but it is expected a report will bc made
ina few flays upon thc statusof Mr. Young (Demo?
crat), charged with disloyalty by Mr. McKeo
(contestant). Thc throe points claimed to have
been made against him in proofs before
tho sub-committee aro that Young furnish?
ed a gun to a man to join tho Confcdcrato
army; that he provided rebels with provisions;
and that he caused Confederate soldiers to cap?
turo a Union soldier then socreted in Young's
house -tho proof on this being that Young said to
rebel soldiers, "There is a Yankee soldier in that
house, now go for him;" and the Federal soldier
was accordingly captured. Should Young be re?
jected, then will como up the question whether
McKeo is legally elected or not. Un this point
other testimony will hereafter bo taken.
Hie President sent to tho Senate to-day botween
two and three hundred nominations of regular
anny officers; most of them to bc lieutenants;
many of them to fill vacancies.

PARTICULARS OK THE DISASTER -TERRIBLE DESTRUC?
lOorn-s-ponch-nci' of thc New York Evening Post.]
SANTO DOMINUO Cm', November 9.-Wc are just
beginning to recover from tho shock of the late
hurricane and to look about us. 'ihe city shows
more ravages thaij ritter tho famous siege of twelve
months during Baez's former administration. In
the last days of thc recent Spanish occupation it
received some pretty hard knocks from the liber?
ating army outside its walls, but all this was child's
play compared with the wholesale devastation of
tho" late hurricane.
It was not so much a hurricane proper as a furi?
ous drenching storm of rain. It began at about 8
o'clock A. M., and blew in fits and roaring gusts
till past midnight. The groat damago to tho ship?
ping und larger buildings in the citv was done at
the beginning of tho blow. Rut all during that
terrible day the wind and rain seemed to combine
to continuo steadily the work of destruction. Tho
first crash of tho gale unroofed whole streets of
thatch-covered houses, and shook and lonseued
tiles on fiat-roofed Moorish palaces, built by tho
younger followers of Columbus more than three
hundred and fifty years ago. Old trocs that bad
withstood tho gales of centuries fell as if the axo
was at their root. The rain carno down in such
masses that it seemed as if a mountain torrent waB
running through tho air, bearing OD its surface
leaves and branches of trees, fragments of timber,
hats, handkerchiefs, and a miscellaneous lot of dry
goods (drv no longer), and eveu fruit. Cocoauuts
wcro whirled through the city hko cannon balls,
and added to tho fright of sonic who thought tho
horrors of another siege was to begin.
The poorer classes who were drowned out of
their houses, snatched hastily what little poor val?
uables they happened to possess, and waded
through the flowing streets to tho churches.
Their messed doors stood open as usual, and never
did moro stricken wanderers pass their portals.
Thc grand old cathedral on the government square,
begun, as an inscription over its main en france
informs us, in 1514, and completed in 1540, was
crammed with a weeping, terror-stricken multi?
tude. There was not a living thing to bc seen in
the streets except when, at Tong intervals, some
desperate adventurer, at the risk of his life, would
pick or crawl his way along under the lea of the
walls left standing, from ono to the other of the
old churches, in search of some missing relative
What added to thc dreadful gloom was the pon?
derous thump of the breakers all along the lino o?
tho sea-wall of the city, which at times sccmod to
shake tho vory foundations of thc churches, and
caused a cry of "earthquake" in tho crowd. Thauk
Heaven this appalling crown of disaster, which has
been withheld for thooo many conturios from this
venerable and historic city-once the metropolis ol
the western world-was spared lo us. In thc
midst of the universal desolation which prevails
there is a sentiment ot gratitude in thc breasts ol
these poor, destitute Dominicans., that matters arc
no worse. Their churches were comparatively un?
injured, and this these simple-minded devotees
regprd as a special token of remembrance ol
In this connection let mc cite the somewhat re?
markable fact that when the City of Santiago dc
los Cabclleros on the North side of the island wat
destroyed by an earthquake in 1843. the great
church of tl?e city was tho only building left stand?
ing, and the sorrowful but not disheartened dc

in what was then a ?avago though beautiful laud
accepted tho fact as a sign that tho Almighty
would not drivo them from their beloved sito, ant
set resolutely to work to rebuild it in moro than its
original beauty aud strength. And afterwards, in
18G4, when Spain, mado brutal by a revolt whicl
she despised, but could not suppress, in a fit 0
impotent rago bumed tho whole city to its founda?
tions: again, as by a miraculous interposition o
Heaven, the old churl- stood unharmed amid tin
flumes; and, again, with grateful and trustful heart)
its homeless children, with no]aid but their owl

faith, have erected a new and prosperous city. ]

Before this late visitation Santo Domingo Cit;
was famous chiefly for its magnificent ruins, am
one revisiting tho city to-day would not, at a firs
glance, be impressed with any Midden ubangi
wrought in the fortunes ol its inhabitants. All tin
prominent, editic. s remain standing. But tin
desolation is hi tho cabins ol' Mn- poor. Thousand
are houseless. Tho roofs ol their dwellings bcinj
blown off in the first heavy gust, the ram after
wards deluged and spoiled everything m thc shapi
of furniture, wearing apparel, bedding, etc., 8'
that large numbers have saved nothing but th
clothes they stood in. Some Of these poor peopl
owned a "burrow" or donkey their only treasure
with winch they did a kind of slow -express busi
ness about town; others kept a few hens or a fe\
goats, or a cow. A great part Ol Ihese domesti
animals were killed during the gale.'
The roads to tho interior ure in sad condition
being choked with fallen trees. It ia reported tba
many natives, with their animals, were drownei
in attempting to cross the suddenly swollen river
to their h'-nic-s. The Niqua river rose to an unes
ampled height, and swept off a large quantity o
copper ore belonging to tho Santo Domingo Cop
ocr Company of New York. The camels employe
by this company in transporting ore to the sea
coast. I understand, were not injured, as they la

desert. Great expectations arc entertained bur
from tho operations of this copper company, air

An Arab's Idea of Women.
The interest concerning the regions ol' the Upper
Nile created by tho Abyssinian expedition has in?
duced the publication of a now book in London, by
Sir Samuel Baker, whose title is, "The Nile Tribu?
taries and tho Sword Hunters of the Hamran
Ar abs. It is said by the English reviewers to bo
as interesting as thc author's previous work. At
thc village of Wat el Nogur Sir Samuel had some
curious talk with one of tho Arab Sheiks on the
subject of marriage. We quote :
Thc sheik laid down thc law with great force,
"that a woman was of no use when she ceasod to
be young, unless she .vas a good strong person
who could grind coru and carry water from the
river ;" in this assertion he was seconded, and sup?
ported unanimously, by tho crowd of Arabs
Now it was always a common practico among
tho Arab women, when they called upon my wife,
to request her to show her hands; they'would
then feel the soft palms, and exclaim in astonish?
ment, "Ahl she has never ground corn 1" that
being tho duty of a wife, unless she is rich enough
to possess slaves. Sheik AchmoL requested me to
give him some account of our domestic arrange?
ments in England. I did this aa briefly as possi?
ble; explaining how ladies receive our devoted at?
tentions, extolling their beauty and virtue, and, in
fact, giving him an idea that England was Para?
dise, and that the ladies were angels. I described
the variety of colors; that instead of all being
dark, some were exceedingly fair; that others had
red hair; that wo had mr>ny bright black eyes,
and some irresistible dark blue; and at the close of
mv descriptions, I believe tho sheik and his party
fett disposed to emigrate immediately to the chilly
shores of Great Britain; theyasked, "Howfar off
is your country ?" "Well," said the sheik, with
a sigh, "that must bo a very ?harming country;
how could you possibly come away from all your
beautiful wives? Triio, you have brought ono
with vou; she is, of course, tho youngest and
most lovelv; perhips those yon have left at homo
arc the old ones I" 1 was obliged to explain that
wo are contented with ope wife, and that, oven
wero people disposed to marry two, or more, they
would be punished with imprisonment. This an?
nouncement was received with a general expres?
sion of indignation; the sheik and his party, who
a few minutes ago wore disposed to emigrate and
settle upon our shores, would now, at tho most
have ventured upon a return ticket. After some
murmurs of disapprobation, there was a decided
expression of disbelief in my last statement.
"Why," anid the sheik, "thc fact is simply impossi?
ble I " How can a man bo contented with one wife ?
It is ridiculous, absurd ! Wbat is ho to do when
she becomes old? When sile is young, if rory
lovely, perhaps he might bo satisfied with her; but
even the young must some day grow old, and the
beauty must fade. The maa docs not fade like
tho woman; therefore aa ho Terrains tho same for
many years, but sho changes in a few years, na?
ture has arranged that thc nan shall have young
wives to replace the old; doos not the prophet
allow it': Had not our forefathers many wives?
and sha!! W3 havo but one? Look nt Yourself.
Your wife is young (and hero thc sheik in?
dulged in compliments), but lu ten years she will
not ne the same as now; will yo j not then lot her
have a nice house all to herself, when she grows
old, while von take a fresh voting wifo?"
I was obliged to explain to *h?> sheik that, first,
e>ur ladies never looked old; secondly, they im?
proved with age; and thirdly, that wo were sup?
posed to love our wives with greater ardor as they
advanced in years. This was received willi an
ominioua shako of thc hoad, coupled with the ex?
clamation, "Masballahl" repeated by the whole
party. This was the moment for a few remarks on
polygamy; I continued, "You men are selfish; you
expoct from the women that which you will not
give in return, 'constancy and lovo ;' "if your wife
demanded a multiplicity of husbands, would it not
bc impossible to love h?r? how can she love jon if
you insist upon other wives ?" "Ah!" ho replied,
"our women aro different to jonis, thev would not
Io.T wy^yjJ^^S? ^n Muntry\ "andTer"
heart is stronger than a man's; she is afraid of
nothing, because von uro with her; but our women
prefer to be far away from their husbands, and are
only happy when they have nothing whatever to do.
You don't" understand our women; they are igno?
rant creatures, and when theil youth is past are
good for nothing bnt work. Yoii have explained
your customs; your women arc adored by the men,
and you are satisfied with ono wife, either young
or old; now I will explain our customs. 1 have
four wives; as ono has become old, 1 have replaced
her with a young one; hore they ull are" (he now
marked four strokes upon tho sand with his stick).
"This one carries water; that grinds tho corn; this
makes the broad; the lust docs not do much, as
she is the youngest, and my favorite; and if they
neglect their work, they get a taste ol' this!"
(shaking a long and tolerably thick stick). "Now,
that's tho differencu bctweeii our establishments;
yours is well adapted for your country, and ours is
the best plan for our own."
AMERICAN POULTRY EXHIBITION.- The first Fall
exhibition of this recently organized society is
now open in New York. Good judges say it is by
far tho largest show of poultry ever held in this
country. There are ono thousand chickens, and
two hundred aud fifty different varieties of Fancy
stock on exhibition. There is a fair representation
of choico geese, ducks, turkeys, pigeons, rabbits,
and last, but not least, attractive Angora cats. A
letter from that city soys:
This show is turned to a good account for exhi?
bition, as it is made a salesroom as well as an ex?
hibition. A large part of the stock has changed
bauds within tho past few days. Every "coop Las
its price," and some of the fancy stock is exceed?
ingly high. Just imagine how ploasaut it must bo
to eat tho cge,s from a pair of Houdans that cost
$1000. Several pairs are marked for sale- prico,
$280, $300 and $400 a pair. Judging from the prices
attached to some of the coops on exhibition, it
would be much loss expensive to stock a farm with
a thoroughbred herd cf neat cattlo than tho same
number of fancy brod chickens, ducks or geese.
There is a patent hatching machino on exhibition,
prico $200, warranted to bring forth threo dozen
chickens every threo weeks. This machino at?
tracts considerable attention from visitors, and all
admire tho cunning and vi;,'or of a youug brood,
only a few days old.
NAVAL PENSIONS AND LIFE INSURANCE.-Mr.
Grimes has introduced in tho United States Sen?
ate a bill makiug further provision for tho widows
and heirs of officers of tho navy, and establishing
naval lifo insurance:
The first section provides that from and after
the 30th day of June next there shall be annually
set aside, from tho surplus intorest of tho naval
pension fund, tho sum of $150,000, for the purpose
of forming a nuolous of a naval life insurance fund,
which shall be increased by a yearly charge upon
thc pay of each officer of the navy entitled to tho
benefits of such fund, excepting midshipmen and
third assistant engineers, at thc following rates,
viz: Admirals, vice admirals and rear admirals, at
tho rate of $100; commodores, $90; captains, f30;
commanders, $70; liuiitcnaiii, commanders, $U0;
lieutenants, $50; masters, $10; ensigns, $30; boat?
swains, carpenters, gunners and Bailmakcrs, $20
each; and all other officers ol' tho staff and marino
corps according to their relativo or assimilated
rank with tho foregoing line officers.
Tho second section provides that thc assess?
ment nhall be monthly. Tho third section provides
for paying thc representatives of tho deceased offi?
cers, and prescribes the mode of so doing, to?
gether with tho respective amounts, according to
rank. The fourth section provides for tho crea?
tion of a board of commissioners of fhe naval lifo
insurance fund, who shall be retired navy officers,
appointed by the Prc.-ident, by and with the advice
and consent of the Sc unto.
TERRIBLE RAVAGES OK CHOLERA AT SEA-SEVEN?
TY-FIVE DEATHS.-The ship Lord Brougham ar?
rived at the New York quarantine last Friday, with
a cargo of disease and death. She reports having
lost, during the voyage, seventy-five out of three
hundred and eighty-two steerage passengers, from
cholera. The number who arc now down with tho
disease is twenty. Many of those who have bceu
ill look like skeletons. The sick have boen trans?
ferred to the hospital ship, and thowell passengers
sent ashore, preparatory to a thorough fumigation
of tho ship. It ts stated that thc disease broke
out two davs after tho vessel left Hamburg, and
raged for a fortnight with great malignity. At ono
time there were one hundred cases under treat
mo.if, and the s.enes on hoard wero fearful, a
panic prevailing among thc steerage passengers,
rendering it diffic ult foi tho commander to pre?
serve order. In some cases whole families were
swept off by tho pestilence. There h ive been no
new eases within thc past eight days. The .ship
sailed without a physician, so that when tho dis?
ease broke out no efficient efforts c ould be made to
check Its progress. The captain reports that
daring the early part of the vnyagn the woathei
was wann, and it w:is only when it became coldei
that the mortality decreased. Alargo number ol
the victims were children. Many of those jrhe
were attacked li\vd only two or threo hours aftei
the first symptoms appeared.

MEDICINE AND SURGERY.
THE PHILADELPHIA UNIVERSITY OE MEDICINE
AND SURGERY waa organized in 1848. Chartered
by the Legislature, February 20. 1853. Nara e changed
by a legislative enactment to the Eclectic Medical Col?
lege, of Philadelphia, in 18C0. In 18(33 it purchased the
Pennsylvania Medical college, eslabbshcd in 1312, and
thc Philadelphia Medical College, which had previously
been merged into the Pennsylvania Medical College, in
1864 it purchased the Penn Medical University. The
Trustees of the separate schools united, petitioned and
obtained a special Act of the Lcpis.ature, consolidating ?
these institutions and changing their names to that of the k
Philadelphia University of Medicine and Surgery, j
March 16,13G5. AU these various Acts are publihed in |
the statutes of Pennsylvania. Tho cost of the I uilding C
and museum was over one hundred thouHand dollars, lt
will be observed that the University, as DOW organized, is
the legal representative or the four Medical Colleges that
it has absorbed. It is a liberal school of medicine, con?
fined to no dogma, nor attached lo any medical cliques,
but embraces in its teaching everything of value to the'
Sessions.-lt has two ruD sessions each year, commenc?
ing on the 1st of October, and continuing until the 1st of
January, as its first session, and from the 1st ot January
to the 1st ol April, as its s jcond ; the two constituting one
lull course of lectures. It has al.-j a summer session,
commencing the 1st April sad continuing until August,
for the preparatory branches, such as Latin, Orees,
Mathematics, Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Anatomy
Tickets.- Tickets to the full course of lectures $120, or
$80 for each session. For thc summer or preparatory
course $26. Uraudating lee $30. To aid young men ot
moderate means, tho University has issued five hundred
scholarships, which aro ?old to first-course students lor
$75. and to second-course studeuts and clergymen for
$50, each constituting the holder a life member, with the
perpotual privileges of the lectures, and aU the teachings
of tho school. The only additional tees are a > early dis?
secting and matriculating ticket, each of which is $5.
The Advantages of Scholarships.-The student holding a
scholarship can enter the College at any time during the
year, attend as long as he chooses, and re-enter the inst!
tu:inn as frequently as deired.
It requires no previous reading or study to enter the
University on scholarships, hence, aU private tuition fee.
Students, by holding scholarships, can piosecute other
business a cart of the tim e.
Tho candidato for graduation can present himself at
any time, and receive his degree as soon as qualified.
In casca stu iout should hold scholarship and not be
able lo attend lectures, it can ti? transferred to another,
thus preventing any lo as.
Parents, guardians or friends of students wishing to
purchase scholarship tor them a year or more before
their attendance at thc University, can secure them by
advancing one-half the price and paying tho balance
when tho student enters. Physicians and benevolent
men can bestow great benefit upon poor young men by
presenting them a scholarship, snd thus enabling thom
to ODtain an honorable profession.
The Faculty embraces seventeen eminent physicians
and surgeons. The Univers! y has associated with it a
large hospital clinic, wheto every form of medical and
surgical disease ia operated on and treated in the pres?
ence of tho class.
COLLF.OE BUILDING.-The College building, located in
Ninth street, south of Walnut, is the finest in the city.
Its front is collegiate gothic, and is adorned with em
battlements and embrasures, presenting a novel, bold,
and beautiful appearance. The facade ls of brown stone,
ornamented by two towera, rising to the elevation ot
eighty teet, and crowned with an embattled parapet.
The buUdlng contains between fifty and sixty rooms, ah
supplied with water, gas, aid every other convenience
that modern improvement can contribute to facilitate
medical instruction. Only five hunted scholarships
wdl be issued, and as two hundred and filly are now
sold, those wno wish to secure ono should do so at once.
Money can bo remitted by express, or a draft or check
sent on any National Bank in the United States, when
the scholarship will bo returned by mall, signed by the
