Topic: [The aim of the new French monthly bulletin is to gather recent information in all branches of knowledge, "sciences and arts", from many sources "in both hemispheres": journals and periodicals, transactions of academies, public institutions, learned societies, new publications. Abstracts will be prepared and the work edited by "competent individuals". A public society has been formed by the Baron de Ferussac which "the most distinguished scientific men of France" have joined. The Baron is also attempting to recruit associates and shareholders in Britain, Germany, "other parts of the Continent, and in the Americas". The Athenaeum wishes the project well]
