A good practice.

--A grand banquet has just been given to M. Ricord, the distinguished surgeon of the Hospital du Midi, on the occasion of his retirement from hospital service.--According to the law all Agrees of the Faculty and hospital surgeons, not full Professors, must retire at the age of 60. M. Ricord, although so young a man in appearance, has attained this age. His practice is now the largest in France — perhaps in the world; it is worth 300,000 francs a year, and he wears decorations from every principal monarch in Europe.--After M. Ricord, the largest, practice is that of M. Negaton, surgeon, which reaches beyond 200,000 francs.
