As compared with last year the new matriculation shows an increase of more than ninety per cent. More students than usual came from the country parishes. The Medical Department opened with largely increased attendance. The Law Department will open on the 18th inst, and the indications are that it will share in the general prosperity of the institution. The new dormitories are now being completed, and will fill a long felt want.
