.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."
