The usual monthly meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania was
held on May 14th, when there was a moderate attendance of
Fellows. Amongst others present were His Excellency the Governor
and Lady Hamilton, Sir Thomas Brady, Sir Lambert Dobson, and Col.
The President (His Excellency the Governor) took the chair at 7'30.
The President said the first business on the paper was the nomination
of Mr. R. A. Bastow as a corresponding member of the Society. They
were all aware of Mr. Bastow's position as a scientist, his work in
connection with the Society being of an extremely valuable character,
but it was necessary to go through the form of an election.
Mr. Bastow was elected a corresponding member, and the following
new Fellows were elected :—The Rev. Mr. McDowall, Canon Dicker,
Mr. F. M. Young. Most of the evening was filled with details of Mr. P. S. Seager’s paper, entitled " A concise history of the
acclimatisation of the Salmonidae in Tasmania."
