    THE 200th anniversary of the birth of Albrecht von Haller—anatomist, physiologist, botanist, and poet—was celebrated on Friday of last week by the unveiling of a statue in his native city of Berne. The celebration was made the occasion of a public holiday, and was participated in by the State and municipal authorities, as well as by the professors and students of the University. It was also attended by delegates from numerous universities and learned societies, especially those with which Haller had been connected, the Royal Society being represented by Dr. Arthur Gamgee and the Royal Society of Edinburgh by Prof. Schäfer. An account of the proceedings will be given in a future number of NATURE.
