Literary Notice.

"Life, Letters and Works of Louis Agassiz," by Jules Marcon, has just been received from the publishers, Macmillan and Co., New York. This is by all odds the best biography of Professor Agassiz, although since his death a great many books have been written about him. Mr. Marcon enjoyed an intimate friendship with the great naturalist for almost thirty years; in fact he is the last surviving member of the small band of European naturalists who came to this country with Agassiz. He is, therefore, thoroughly competent to treat the matter satisfactorily. The name of Professor Agassiz is immortal and his connection with Harvard makes this work especially acceptable.
