WE have received the “Daily Programme of the Twentyfifth Meeting of the American Association,” held at Buffalo, August 23–30. It forms a pamphlet of about 100 pages, but appears to have been published daily during the meetings, and is quite a model of what such a programme should be. It is. clearly printed on excellent paper, and has not the overcrowded appearance that the programme of the British Association often presents. At the last meeting a standing committee was appointed to superintend the selection of papers, and to this committee a short abstract must be sent before the title of a paper canjbe transmitted to the sectional committees. A list ot accepted papers is given each day, and appended is the time each is supposed to occupy in reading. The work of each section for each day is indicated, and all the necessary information as to officers, regulations, &c., are given. A list is also given daily ot the number of members “elected” and the number “registered,” with their addresses. Altogether for this meeting these amount to 352, and the number of papers entered for reading is 147. At this meeting seventeen fellows were elected, consisting of some of the best known names in American science. The next meeting of the Association will be held at Nashville, Tenn., on the last Wednesday of August, 1877, the president-elect being Prof. Simon Newcomb, of Washington.
