NEW YORK :
REFERRING to their Preface in each of the two preceding volumes of the American Reprint of the London CHEMICAL NEWS for information as to the general character and scope of the journal, the undersigned would now call special attention to the features they have introduced in the American issue.

SEELY, of New York, a gentleman abundantly qualified to execute in the best manner the task thus undertaken. In tbis feature, we comply with suggestions frequently made and for some time entertained, and we are confident that it will

It will be faithfully . corrected, montbly, by competent authority, furnishing a reliable record of current prices in the New York markets.
