    THE Lens for November 1872, contains the following communications: “The preparation of Diatomaceæ,” Christopher Johnstone, M. D.: a succinct account of the most usual and approved methods of cleaning Diatomaceous deposits. A short reply of Dr. J. J. Woodward to Dr. Lionel S. Beale; and a memorandam by Chas. Stodder, entitled “Draw-tubes v. Deep-eye-pieces.” A continuation by Dr. J. N. Danforth of his communication on “the cell,” treats of the theories of cell development. H. H. Babcock's “Flora of Chicago and its vicinity,” Part IV. completes, we presume, the phanerogamic plants of Part III.; “Microscopical Memoranda for the use of Practitioners of Medicine,” by Dr. J. J. Woodward, relates the results of the author's experience on “the Imbibition of the Tissues with Chloride of Gold and Osmic Acid.” Prof. H. L. Smith gives a brief notice of the Bailey Collection of Diatomaceæ in the Museum of the Boston Society of Natural History. Dr. J. J. Woodward also advocates the employment of Frussulia Saxonica as a test of high-power definition in preference to Amphipleura pellucida. S. A. Briggs gives an enumeration of some of the Diatomaceæ of Upper Lake Huron and the Sault. The usual brief notes, with title-page and index, complete this number and the first volume of this American Quarterly Journal of Microscopy.
