The monthly meeting of the Fellows was held on Tuesday, 12th May. The Secretary informed the meeting that His Excellency the President intended to be present this evening, but was accidentally prevented by the arrival of H.M.S. Virago, which necessitated his presence at Government House. After the meeting Fellows proceeded to the microscopical exhibition in the large room of the museum. Here a number. of microscopes, each supplied with a variety of objects, were collected. Mr. F. Abbott, by means of a powerful standard instrument, brought under notice many exquisite forms of the first order of diatomaceae, also beautiful specimens of marine plants parasitic upon algae and zoophytes, together with many other objects of great interest.
