I REGRET to say that a letter, which has just arrived from Tokio, informs me that Prof. John Milne has lost all his valuable seismographic instruments, with his library and many manuscripts, through a fire which has occurred at his house and observatory. Prof. Milne wishes me to announce that his address-book has been destroyed, but he will be able to forward vol. iv. of the Seismological Journal to those entitled to it, if they will send in their names to him, “care of the Japan Mail office, Yokohama.” He further wishes me to state that he has 600 damaged copies of the Seismological Society's Transactions, and that from these he will be happy to complete sets. Applicants for the copies of the Transactions should address Prof. Milne, care of the Geological Society, Burlington House, London, W.
