The monthly evening meeting of the Society, which was very numerously attended, was held at the Museum on Monday, the 13th September ; His Honor Mr. Justice Dobson, V.P., in the chair. Mr. V. W. Hookey, who had previously been nominated by the council, was balloted for, and declared duly elected as a Fellow of the Society. The Secretary informed the meeting that a fragment of a paper, by the late Mr. T. G. Gregson, on the habits and manners of the Tasmanian Aborigines, had been placed in his hands for perusal. The first portion of the paper referred particularly to the general treatment of the natives by the white population, but as that subject was fully treated of in " West's History of Tasmania," it could be of little interest to the meeting ; the remaining portion, however, giving Mr. Gregson's impressions from personal observation of the Aborigines, was, he thought, of sufficient interest to warrant its being read.
