The Indiana Medical College decided
to exclude women from the privileges of
that institution, after having educated
several of them, and ow Senator Ed

diciary Committee adverse to allowing
women lawyer to ^practice in the United

college the vote of the faculty was close,
and is likely to be retaken. The Ed

San Francisco claims a population ot
308, 215, an increase since March 1, 1877.
of 7,195, This claim is based upon un
trustworthy estimates of the canvassers for
a city directory. A recent careful census
of the city of Providence, Rhode Island,
showd a loss of population of over two
thousand, while the number of families
had increased nearly five hunt red. Can

The people of Maine are evidently
determined that the noble moose shall
be protected from the bullets of the hun

their forests. A act of the Legislature
provides th at no person shall before the
year 1880, take kill, or destroy any moose
under a penalty of one hundred dollars
and that any person having in his pos
session, keeping, or selling any moose
meat or moose hide shall be ubjected to a
similar penalty. I and after the year
1880 moose my be hunted, but not with
dogs, between the first day of January

The Virginia Legislature has made ma
terial changes in the criminial laws of
the State. Stripes are to be inflicted for
petty larceny and minor offences oi like
character but not more than thirty-nine
stripes may be inflicted upon any victim
in one day, and not more than seventy
eight for one offence. When a female is
convicted of an offence punishable by the
lash, she may in discretion of the court,
be sentenced to confinement in jail for a
period not exceeding twelve months. The
object of these provisions appears to be
to substitute the whipping-post for short
terms of imprisonment, and thus relieve
the penitentiary from petty offenders.

A Vienna correspondent say s: The full
text of the treaty of San Stefano, has renewed
a strong anti-Russian feeling. There is no
difference of opinion about the real meaning
of the treaty. It is .not Russian prepondence
but Russian rule in European Turkey and i
is just because, such alteration as would re
move this feature would entirely destroy the
treaty that less confidence is felt in the
efficacy of the congress since the pubheation.
While Count Andrassy will demand revision
of the entire treaty, he will decline to do so in
combination with England, because their in
terest is not identical.
The postmaster general has issued an

matter, whicTi is very important in its bear
ings, inasmuch as it over-rules the long es

mitted upon a wrapper of printed matter.

structions that any matter, the imprint of
which may be transmitted within the in
closure, may also be trausmitted at the same
rate, if printed on the wrapper or envelope.
This includes business cards and directions for
returning any printed matter on the outside
of the wrapper or envelope. Postmasters
however, are instructed not to regard re
quests for the return of such matter, unless
stamps to pay return postage are deposited.
A report has been submitt ed to the
House committee on banking and currency
by the sub-committee contesting of Chitten
den and Ewing which recently visited New
York for the purpose of ascertaining the pres
ent condition of the sub-treasury in that city
with regard to the amount of gold held there
belonging ta the United States government
and to others, and withthe view of conferring
with certain financial gentlemen regarding
the practicability of the proposed resumption
of specie payments on January 1st next. The
following are the substantial points of the re
port. The bankers were of opinion that re
sumption at the earliest possible moment was
not only consistent with the public welfare,
but was of the greatest importance to the
best prosperity of the country. Also that
resumption on the fii st of January, 1879, might
be made practical and safe if adequate meas
ures should be adopted but all who express
ed themselves on the subject were agreed that
the plans of the secretary of the treasury were
inadequate, and that if he should make an
attempt to resnme on the first of January, un
der such circumstances as are likely to exist
at that time,the attempt would most probably
fail. They were of opinion that the remone
tization of silver had seriously interfered with
the probabilities of resumption at the time
