Mr. Charles Joly, of Paris, gives in the Journal de la Societe Nationale d' Horticulture for 1882, a charming account of a visit to the celebrated Director of the Botanic Garden at Leige. Professor Morren makes a rule to possess himself of every paper or tract on botanical topics that appears in Europe and America, and these are all classified in an admirable manner for scientific research. On his favorite topic Bromeliaceae, the Pine Apple family, besides published works, he has an enormous amount of manuscript. The Botanic Garden, founded in 1840, is sustained by the city government, and the citizens take great pride in supporting it. In the Aquarium the Victoria regia is a great success.
