THE SCIENTIFIC COLLECTION AT SOUTH KENSINGTON. The series of conferences* at the Exhibition of Scien- tific Apparatus at South Kensington was opened on Tuesday. Mr. W. Spottiswoode in his address said this was the first serious, or at all events the first suc- cessful, attempt at a cosmopolitan collection. He adverted to the advantages which may accrue to the cultivators of science, and through them to the nation at large, from a national collection of scientific appa- ratus. He suggested that instruments whose immediate use has gone by, but which are nevertheless of historical interest, lent either by public departments or by private individuals, might remain there on permanent loan further, that other instruments as they pass out of active service, for example, from the Admiralty, from the Board of Trade, from the Ordnance Survey, or from the other departments, should similarly find a place in this museum. In such a category also might be in- cluded the scientific outfit of the Challenger, and of the Arctic Expeditions, and likewise those of expedi- tions for the observations of the transit of Venus or of solar eclipses. To these might be added apparatus pur- chased for special investigations through the Parlia- mentary grant annually administered by the Royall Society. And further, if this deposit of instruments be made without alienation of ownership, then private societies or even individuals might, he thought, be glad to avail themselves of such a depository of instru- ments not actually in use.
