.The monthly evening meeting of the Fellows was held on Tuesday-, the 14th May, J. Barnard, Esq., in the chair. Including a note from Mr. Calder, containing the following extract from a letter received by him from Bruni Island was read:—"Last week a curious circumstance took place in Simmon's Cove. An immense shoal of small fish of the sprat kind (?) was driven into the cove by larger kinds, such as the Barracouta, King fish, and others, in such numbers that they absolutely suffocated each other, and drifted ashore in such quantities that you will hardly believe me when I tell you there are at least one hundred tons there, and fully two hundred more at the bottom of the water, all dead."
