THERE is a movement tor providing Edinbutgla w.itk. a zoological garden as a source of recreation and instruction. Some £ 10,000 or E12,000 was raised in fonr days by the town for a recent show of the Highland Society, and it is believed that £ 3000 a year could be obtained for the garden. Edinburgh has long had a Botanical Garden, but partly owing to the climate, perhaps, no collection of wili animals. We may add: (says the Globe) that South Bronx-park, New York, the largest zoologieal-gnr&o. in the world, was opened recently. It covers 261 acres, while the largest in Europe, that of Berlia* comprises only 00 acres.
