The monthly evening meeting was held on Tuesday, the 10th November, T. Giblin, Esq., in the chair. -The Secretary read a letter from Mr. Trappes, Oyster Cove, suggesting the advisability of introducing the Falkland Island Tussac Grass into the colony, and referring to an article on the plant in the Penny Magazine (31st May, 1845). -The Secretary called the attention of the members to a suggestion which had been made at the last meeting, to the effect that the Gardens might be kept open to a later hour in the evening. The Council had had the matter under consideration, and had obtained from the Superintendent of the Gardens all the information possible on the matter. It was found, however, that no change in the hour could be made, owing to the circumstance that no funds were at the disposal of the Council for payment of the extra attendants who would in that case be required. -Mr. Morton Allport read a paper, entitled "Further Notes on the Salmon Experiment." -Professor Harkness (agreeably to a request from the Council) offered some remarks on the approaching Transit of Venus.
