Excerpt from The Magazine of Natural History, Vol. 7: And Journal of Zoology, Botany, Mineralogy, Geology, and Meteorology In taking a general survey of the progress of Natural History during the past year, it, is gratifying to observe the establishment of Natural History Societies, one after another, 111 many parts of the country. The British Association has given a grand stimulus to natural history pursuits; and the personal intercourse, among naturalists, to which it has led, cannot fail to be highly favourable to science, and to good feeling among scientific men. By this means, also, the great object of science, viz., that of reducing it to practice, and rendering it available for the purposes of domestic and general improvement, is likely to be more immediately effected, than by the single influence of the press. The Natural History Societies of York, Newcastle upon Tyne, Worcester, Bristol, Bel fast, and various other places, and the Entomological Society of London, are in a flourishing condition, and some of them have begun to publish volumes of their Transactions. Not only are new periodicals, devoted wholly or partly to natural history, being established in the metropolis, but also in the provinces. Among these deserve more especially to be mentioned, the Entomological Magazine of London, and the Analyst of Worcester.
