Professor Gray read the following note in reference to the life and services of the late Professor Bailey: - "Jacob Whitman Bailey, late Professor of Chemistry, Mineralogy, and Geology in the U. S. Military Academy, West Point, - the only Associate Fellow lost to the Academy by death during the past year, - died on the 27th of February last, at a comparatively early age. He was born on the 29th of April, A. D. 1811, in the township of Ward, now Auburn, in this Commonwealth. He was graduated at West Point, in July, 1832, when he received his commission of Second Lieutenant of Artillery. He was promoted to be First Lieutenant in August, 1836, and had charge of an arsenal in Virginia at the time of his appointment, in 1838, to the chair he so long and so worthily filled at West Point, at first as Assistant, and afterwards as principal Professor. "His public scientific career began in the year 1837, with a communication printed in the American Journal of Science, On the Use of Grasshoppers' Legs as a Substitute for Frogs in Galvanic Experiments.
