    AMONGST other lectures announced for the coming Baden-Baden meeting of the German Association of Naturalists, to which we have not referred in our note last week, we may mention that at the opening of the first general meeting on September 18, Prof. Kussmaul, of Strasburg, will deliver a memorial address in memory of the late Dr. Benedict Stilling, of Cassel, the first secretary of last year's meeting. The second and third generaTmee tings will take place on September 20 and 24 respectively, and will be partly occupied with the following lectures:—Prof. Ecker, of Freiburg, “On Lorenz Oken, in connection with the Centenary of his Birth;” Prof. Goltz, of Strasburg, “On the Heart;” Prof. Jaeger, of Stuttgart, “On Affections of the Mind.” The sectional meetings will take place on September 19, 22, and 23. For these up to the present no less than seventy-six papers have been announced, comprising all domains of natural science and medicine.
