Geological Society of America.—The sixth annual meeting of the Geological Society of America was held December 27-29, 1893, in Boston and Cambridge, Mass. The sessions of the opening and closing days were in the hall of the Boston Society of Natural History, and those of the second day were in the Harvard University Museum, Cambridge. The Geological Society has a membership of about two hundred and twenty-five, comprising most of the prominent working geologists of North America. It holds two meetings yearly, one in the summer in connection with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a winter meeting in the holidays following Christmas. Each of these meetings is held successively in different cities of the United States and Canada, previous winter meetings having been held in New York, Washington, Columbus, and Ottawa. The officers elected for the year 1894 are Prof. T. C. Chamberlin, of Chicago, president; Prof. N. S. Shaler, of Cambridge,
