The monthly evening meeting was held on the 12th October, the Lord
Bishop of Tasmania in the chair.
-The Rev. Julian Woods observed that Mr. Spicer, whose reputation as
a botanist required no comment, had laid the Society under a great
obligation. The Society was now fortunate in having such a Herbarium,
as it could be truly called a type collection—such a collection indeed as no
other colonial society with which he was acquainted, possessed.
-E. C. Nowell, Esq., the Government Statistician, read an elaborate and
carefully prepared paper "On the Vital Statistics of Tasmania, with
especial reference to the Mortality of Children."
