Abstract

Read at a meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania, 9th
May, 1871.-In the last paper I had the honour on bringing before
the Society I referred to a correspondence which was then
pending on the star n, and the attached nebula, in the constellation
Argo-Navis. It will be fresh in the minds of
many of the members of this Society that authorities, previously
quoted, have confirmed the alterations which have
been recorded in this object.
