Suppression of Newspaper extras on Sunday.

--The Baltimore Exchange, of Saturday, says:

‘ A notice has appeared in some of the city dailies signed by Provost Marshal Dodge, forbidding the sale of newspaper extras on the Sabbath day. This step is said to have been taken at the request of parties who profess a great desire to have the day properly respected. At a Union prayer meeting held in Dr. Dunning's church, corner of Green and German streets, a resolution was adopted requesting the police authorities of the city to enforce the law forbidding the sale of the extras. At the same meeting a resolution was offered requesting the enforcement of the law in reference to playing musical instruments on Sunday. This, however, was lost.
