AS announced already, the British Association will meet this year in Sheffield under the presidency of Dr. T. G. Bonney, F.R.S. Members of the association who have not seen the city since the last meeting there thirty-one years ago will find themselves now quite at sea, so great have been the changes in streets, buildings, growth, and, it may be added, public spirit during that time. It has now been found possible not only to provide ample accommodation for the sectional work, but to do so compactly, all the sections except one being within a few minutes' walk from the reception room. The reception, smoking, writing, and general committee rooms will be housed in the suite of assembly rooms belonging to the Cutlers' Company, which were used in 1879 for the evening soirees. The reception room of that date is now allotted to Section E. The Cutlers' Hall is also close to the tramway centre, and so is easily accessible from all parts of the city.
