The Cobham Journals. (Stanford.)—Miss Caroline Molesworth made observations on temperature,

atmospheric phenomena, the flowering of plants, ripening of fruit, &c., during many years, at Cobham Lodge, near Esher. Of these records, Miss Eleanor A. Ormerod (who dedicates the volume to the President and Fellows of the Meteorological Society, as their "first Lady-Fellow") has edited those that relate to the years 1825-1850. Miss Molesworth was a careful and conscientious observer, distinguishing between first and second-hand knowledge. We notice in the preface an allusion to the longevity of General Felix Buckley, who, having served at the battle of Culloden, survived until 1823.
