THE report of the council of the British Association was received and adopted at the statutory meeting of the general committee held on Friday last, July 5. Much disappointment was expressed that no ordinary meeting had been held for the second year in succession, and a resolution was adopted unanimously asking the council to arrange for a meeting in London next year if it should not be possible to meet at Bournemouth. It was left to the council to decide whether the meeting should be of the usual kind, with the various sections of the Association in session, or should take the form of a conference at which some of the national aspects of scientific work would be I presented. We urged the desirability of a London I meeting several months ago, and are glad, therefore, that the general committee has expressed itself so decidedly in favour of it.
