THE Chemical Society, having been founded in 1841, is in the fiftieth year of its existence and is the eldest among Chemical Societies. To celebrate this important occurrence in the history of the Society, it has been arranged that on February 24, at 3–5 o'clock p.m., a meeting shall be held at the Society of Arts, where the original meeting took place on February 23, 1841, at which the formation of the Society was decided on. At this meeting various addresses will be delivered, and delegates from other Societies will be received. On the evening of the same day, at 8.30 o'clock, the President and Council will hold a reception at the Goldsmiths' Hall, which has been most kindly placed at the disposal of the Society for the purpose by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. On the evening of February 25, at 6.30 for 7 p.m., the Fellows and their friends will dine together at the Hôtel Métropole.
