Abstract

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.
