The Royal Microscopical Society.


    ON Wednesday, October 16, a conversazione was held in the Great Hall of King's College, about four hundred fellows and guests being received by the president, Mr. H. G. Plimmer, F.R.S., and Mrs. Plimmer. The object in view was, so far as practicable, to gather together a series of exhibits which -would indicate the many uses, both in science and commerce,-to which'the microscope is put at the present time. In addition, the conversazione afforded an opportunity for those engaged in microscopic work to show objects of interest or to demonstrate the use of apparatus or appliances for special purposes.
