THE NEW MEDICAL COLLEGE, EMNBUBGH.â A commencement has been made with the clearing of the site to be occupied by the new Medical College, Edinburgh. The houses occupying this site were butlt about a century ago, and that portion of them constituting Park-place consisted of what were then first-class city residences. One of these, of very graceful design, is considered to be the work of one of the brothers Adam. It was the town residence of the Campbells of Succoth, and was at one time occu- pied by Sir Islay Campbell, Lord President of the Court of Session. This house, Mr. Anderson, the architect of the college buildings, proposes to re-erect aud incorporate with the general design in such a manner as not to interfere with the sssthetic effect of the Aiaatomy Court, of which it will form a fea- ture. Another qf these houses belonged to the Taits of Harviston, and in it the present Archbishop of Canterbury was born, his mother having been a 1 daughter of the Lord President Oampbell above re- ferred tc. The interior of these houses contain ad- mirable specimens of mantelpieces, doors, &c., similar in style to those so much aS cted by the modern Queen Anne school. These Mr. Anderson proposes to utilise as far as practicable in the new class rooms. To carry out the portions of Mr. Anderson's design aHflblately required will entail a cost of about £188,000. Towards this sum the pubhc have contri- buted about £90,000, and the Government have promised to contribute £80,000 conditionally upon the public subscribing the balance.âHuileUr.

Mr. Patrick Kelly, painter, pre- v aided, and re^plutioBs were passed to the effect that it was the opinion of the meeting that the bill of last y session, for the closing of public-houses on Sunday, was an attempt at class legislation, and, if passed into 11 law, would abridge popular rights and liberties; I that they regarded the Sunday Closing Bill a as an insult offered to the individual cha- 01 racter and manhood of the working men or Ireland n that the bill, if passed, would be the cause of making BJ law-abiding citizens become law-breakers, and would b4 also endanger morality, by introducing drink into the JL domestic circle and they protested against this a tyrannical attempt to curtail their rights and privi- m leges as honest and industrious lxiembgra of society w Xhejaeetibg was moist dieordetlj throughout. £
