Medical Matters Before Congress.  —April 7, Representative Murphy introduced a bill(H.R. 6524), declaring that all persons who, during the late war of the Rebellion, served in the Union Army as contract surgeons, shall be entitled to all the rights, benefits, and privileges conferred on surgeons and assistant surgeons of the army under the various provisions of the homestead laws. It was referred to the committee on military officers.

Medical Societies, etc.  —A new Medical Society has recently been started here, which has been incorporated as the Medico-Chirurgical Society of the District of Columbia. Dr. Robert Reyburn is the President, and, among others, it includes all the colored practitioners of medicine in good standing in the District. It seems to emanate mainly from the faculty and graduates of the medical department of Howard University.
