EVENING STAR. V wi? m urr at m Omcm (f 9BTIL r?* *BST DAY. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. * A*?tal Coubbhcbmbwt or thb Medical DiPARTMBirT~Dr Georgetown Collbob ?We found an unexpectedly large gathering on en tering tha Smithsonian Hall last night, the attraction being the annual commencement ceremonies of Georgetown College. After music bv the band stationed io the J tilery, and reading (be commission by Prof . Eliot, dean? A' *?fal*a, president of Georgetown College, addreesed the students and aodtenee briefly, remarking upon tbe pleasant duty be was about to discharge of giving the graduating elan this testimonial of tbeir alma mater, and the pleasure of wbicb was enhanced by the assiduity and correct de portment which had marked tbeir coarse of s'.adr. In the course of his remarks he very oonolusively controverted the somewhat com* man assertion that the study and practice of medicine is adverse to morality and religion. The follewing graduates were then oalled in tarn upon the platform, to receive the broad parchment, rii: J. C Wilcox, of the Dietriet of Columbia; George McCoy, of Ireland ; L M. Lanoaster. of Maryland ; D. B. Clark, of the District of Columbia; J C. W. Kennor, of Ohio; T A, Woodly, of tbe District of Columbia; J S Smith, of the District of Columbia; 8. Loomis, of Connecticut. As they severally returned to their seats they were met with hearty cbaars, and a few lucky ones were the recipients of beautiful bouquets fr?n their fair friends. Prof S. Young then proceeded to address the graduating class, in a manner eminently praotioal and suggestive. He reminded them that they were entering the profeesion al a period of unexampled pro gress ic medieine ; that the age is past when medical men relying only on observation, without the means of investigating the nature and true origin of phenomena presented to them, indulged m the wildest speculation. The most abundant means are now afforded for the study of those laws of natare which aie the foundations of all real medical educa tion, through the advanced condition of clen fetry and of anatomy, aided by that wonder ful instrument, the microscope. They had before them the acquired information of the whole medical world ; the result* of medical enquiry in any quarter coming at once to them through the instrumentality cf tbe press, and thoroughly informed as to what Is known, they are prepared to explore further and to add to the sum of medical knowledge They were admonished that tbe edueation they had received thus far was only elemen tary, and it was for tbem, having been taught how to learn, to proceed to complete tbeir own education At every Ptep they would find new and wondrous truths to investigate With all the knowledge acquired there is yet much un learned. We are for example scarcely on the threshold of knowledge of the nervous system, we are familiar with its phenomena and are acq airing faou in regard to its laws every day, but though the most important of all connect ad with the human machine, the supposed ?eat of the life-giving power, the controlling Influence of the whole economy, we must con feu our comparative ignoranoe. It is cheering, however, to be conscious that the knowledge gained already has been of vast service to oar fellow men; an examina tion of vital statist ice will demonstrate a pro gressive improvement?for example, in 1805 1 in every 7 admitted to the Paris hospitals died, now only 1 in 12, an increase of 71 per cant in 51 years. In tbe 80 000 persons an nually passing through these hospitals thage U a saving of 500 persons as compared with former years. Formerly, the time of treat ment was an average of 39 days, now 24 days. In some diseases 1 formerly died in every 5t> cases, now only 1 in 294 The average of mor tality has changed during the last 71 years from 1 in 20 dying to 1 in 40 in this day. In surgical practice more than 35 per cent, has baen gained since the beginning of tbe present century Tbe average duration of life has been incraaaad during the past 60 years years In obstetrical practice, 150 yearseinoe, 1 In 40 died, now net 1 in 250 ; from the last retires there appears to be a gain of 25 per cent of cure in past 75 years, and the average time cf treatment lessened more than cne-third. The discovery of ether and chloroform, and other medical improvements, has shorn disease of its terrors, bmall pox and cholera were no longer fatal Marsh mi aim a had baen stripped of its deadly power by the discovery of the alkaloid of cinchona. He adjped them to let real merit be tha ob ject of tffeir ambition; to not rely for success upon personal regard or the partiality of in fluential friends; to be careful in regard to their standing with their brother practition ers ; to let inevitable professional rivalries be honorable rivalry, and not a scramble for ad vantage ; to act upon tha cardinal rule (in their relation* to professional brethren and the public) that every man has a right to se lect for himself and family his own medical adviser ; to exercise the greatest prudsnce in thair confidential relations to families ; to ex act the full price for services to tboee able to pay, and to reserve for the poor their gratui tous services. He next spoke to them ef the difficulties they must expect to encounter; they must not look for wealth, as with few exceptions, tbe members of the profession are poor; they were entering upon a life of servitude not one hour of whieh they could eall their own ; they must expect ingratitude and to be sapp!anted by quacks and cha.-latans. Oae of their severest trials would be to find the whole community indisposed te recognise the superior merits of regularly educated physicians and a philosophic practice based upon scientific acquirements; and when Pes tilence is abroad in tbe land, they must re main at thair poets, even to the sacrifice of their lives. But there was another side to this glorious picture: Theirs was a noble profession, and 1U study the most captivating of all pursuits ; aad there was to the Christian physician the added feeling of gratification which follows the honest discharge of daty Dr Y , in closing, adverted to the rise of Georgetown College, which in sixty five years has advanced from a modest academy to the position of a world renowned Institution ; al luding next to the fact that it was now not quite seven years since the medical depart ment was organised, as a chili of tbe pareat institution, and the baptismal ceremony of which bad been performed within the walls of the same building where they were now met. During these years they had struggled, un aided. against difficulties, embarrassments and opposition of foes, was only known and only to be appreciated by themselves. Their success, so far, stimulated tbem to renewed exertion to deserve confidence and prove wor thy of tha truat reposed in them by their ven arable alma mater. Tat WasnisGTos (?w) Fma laacaasca Company ?The stock books for this company, recently chartered by Congress, were opened on tbe Vth inst, and by the close of business hours on the day after, every dollar of tbe stock was taken by substantial parties here, we understand. This is as it should be Tbum1 and4 cl our fellow-oitiaens prefer, very naturally, to insure with a company whose affairs are conducted under their ejres. and whose managers and stockholders arc known to the whole commanity That risks made by them must be perfectly secure, is guaranteed by the clause in the charter making all con oerned in this company liable in all their property for the legsd fulfillment of all iU en gagements. ?? Relieving tbb Puoa ? A correspondent writes us : 411 cannot forbear bringing to your notice tbe fact that during the severe spell of cold weather, in whloh there was so much need for help for the poor, members of Con gress acre kindly engaged in privately reliev ing the neeesiities of the needy."

It is from tha establishment of Ellis, Brother A Co , in this city. In finish, no ateam engine was ever made in thia country superior to it, while it doea the great amount of work required of it with ao little noise, that, atanding within two feet of it and one'a back turned to it, it does not make one aware of ita presence?tha best poaaibla evidence of the akill and perfection with which it ia built. We are proud of it as an aehievement of Washington city mechan ica ; aubatantiating, as it doea, our repeated assertion that no mechanics caji be found in the Union better qualified to execute orders in their respeotive linea than our own. Omsibus Fabb ?Several subscribers com p.ain that in making chaDge for quarterf, halves, Ac., omnibus drivers manage to get aeven cents f*re inatead ofaix-the proprie tore' rata. Very likely; aa they do that thing overv where an omnibua line runa. The remedy ia for the passenger who atands on a cent, quietly to demand It. Bua will then hand it over, though in ao doing, he may lose a fraction of a peuny. The number of ahort fipa and levies put upon the drivera is, of] oourse, very great, and we presume their aim u simply to take due care that in the long run, in the matter of making change thev shall get even with the publio.
