Dtaih of Froftwor LtmU John Rodoiph Affottk, — Tt ia with the decpflst 
regret that we have to antioimni the death of Profeuor A^osmi, the news 
of which has juat reached ua (December 15th). He wae a Swiss by birth 
and education, and much of hia ^^reat work was done in his European home- 
It woi not till 1840 that he left Europe for America, where be haa be«n 
almost evei sioce. XEe wae awiuedlj one of the few leading men in the 
sdence of Zoology, although he was'a believer in aeveral diatinct epedw of 
men, and a diebelJeTeT in Daiwin> grand theory of OTolution. Of hia 
Tarioue worts it is UDnecesftftry to apeak, for» with the exception of hia 
''Tour of Lake Superior" and *'A Journey in Brazil,** almoet all hta great 
efforts with the pen hare been mode in Europe. He waa bom May S8tli| 
1807^ in the pariah of Mottier, between the Idke« of Neofch&tel and Mont 
Id the autamn of 1871 he joined an exploring expedition to the Sonth 
Atkndc and PacLfic shores of the Continent, which waa his last eipeditioiL 
A careful exploration was made of the celebrated Sargasso-sea, and a nest- 
buildlng lish was diacovered in that raat bed of oceanic vegetatioD ; and 
other important cootributiona were made to natural science. Agossii 
received fewer dLstinctiona from European Sodetiea and UmTeraities than 
many leaa diadnguiflhed men of acieace. The Academy of Sciences at 
Paris awarded him their prize, however, and offered him a acientific prO' 
feaaorehipf which he declined. ITe ohn receirM the Oroaa of the Legion of 
Honour. Ilia natural aimplicity of character made him very generally 
beloved ; and one of Longfellow's poems describes him, amid all tha know- 
ledge he had gained of Nature, sUU at heart a child.
