*** The above list is not quite complete, though it probably includes all the most important works of Prof. Jevons. No attempt has been made to register the reviews which he wrote for the Academy and other papers, nor have his anonymous writings in the Spectator and other periodicals been included. A volume of his papers relating to the Currency, is understood to be in preparation by one of his friends and pupils. A biography of him from the pen of Professor A. W. Ward of Owen's College has been announced. The object of this paper is purely bibliographical, and although the memory of many years of friendly intercourse might tempt him aside, the writer feels that this is neither the time nor place in which to speak of the loss to the world by his death, nor to endeavour to express the feelings of those who have to lament not only the ripe scholar and profound thinker, but the pleasant companion and the sincere friend.

BIRKENHEAD FREE LIBRARY –We are pleased to hear that the choice of the Library Committee for the post of Librarian, vacant through the death of our late member Mr. Hinton, has fallen upon Mr. William May, the principal Cataloguing Assistant at the Free Library, Liverpool, who is so well and favourably known to most of our members, through his efforts in connection with the much appreciated Exhibition of Library Appliances, &c. at the late Congress there, and for his able labours in the compilation of the large Catalogue published in 1880. Mr. May has been connected with the Liverpool Free Library from early boyhood, and carries with him the good-will and esteem of all his colleagues. During his long service he has developed a special aptitude for bibliographic and literary
research, which with his energy and experience, must render him emphatically the right man in the right place in his new position. There were we understand 116 applicants for the post. Mr. May's appointment is of course subject to the approval of the Town Council.
BIRMINGHAM.—On November 16th, Sir Stafford Northcote as President of the Birmingham Union of Suburban Institutes, delivered an address to a crowded audience in the Birmingham Town Hall. The address was a plea for the study of literature for its own sake.
CAMBUSLANG.-On November 16th a large meeting of rate-payers was held in the Parish Church “in pursuance of a requisition,” to consider the desirability of adopting the Public Libraries Acts. A motion in favour of adopting them having been proposed, an amendment was moved and declared carried by 211 votes against 177 in favour of adopting the Acts. This disposes of the question for two years.
DUBLIN FREE PUBLIC LIBRARIES.— The first Meeting of the Public Libraries Committee has been held at the City Hall,
when the Right Hon. The Lord Mayor was elected Chairman, and Councillor Alfred Webb, Vice-Chairman. The committee proceeded to consider the suggestions put forward at recent public meetings in favour of establishing at first only one library, and placing it in the neighbourhood of Grafton Street, rather than opening two district libraries, one in Capel Street and one in Thomas Street. It was pointed out that persons are now freely admitted to the National Library, Kildare Street, on the written recommendation of any respectable householder; and having regard to this, and to the cost of maintaining district libraries elsewhere, the committee decided to recommend the Municipal Council to proceed with the establishment of the proposed lending libraries and reading rooms in Capel Street and Thomas Street. A sub-committee was appointed to consider the question of structural alterations, and to make arrangements for taking up the loans required to put the scheme in operation. To the committee named to select books the following names were added :Rev. J. O'Hanlon and Rev. M. Close for History and Biography, Sir Robert Stewart for Music, Dr. Ingram for General History, Councillor Doherty, C.E., for Mechanical Arts, Mr, M‘Cormack and Mr. Brophy for Technical Industries, Rev. Dr. Haughton for Science, and A. J. Mayne, R.H.A., for Art.
LEICESTER. It is announced that the Leicester Corporation intend to promote a Bill in the next Session of Parliament, to enable them to levy a rate of twopence in the pound, for the support of the Free Library and Museum, and also of a proposed Art Gallery. This rate is estimated to produce about £3,500 per annum. Already a considerable number of valuable pictures have been presented to the Art Gallery, and the Town Museum is undergoing a complete reconstruction and re-arrangement, which will place it in the first rank of provincial museums. The antiquities for which Leicester is famed,
