Abstract

The monthly evening meeting was held on July 9th. The President, His
Excellency, Sir Robert G. C. Hamilton, K.C.B,, presided, Lady Hamilton
was also present.
Mr. F. Back, General Manager Tasmanian Government Railways,
was elected a Fellow of the Society. Includes correspondence in regard to the measurement of Tasmanian trees. Captain Shortt laid before the Society a chart showing the registration
of temperature by a self-registering thermometer recently received
from Paris. He explained that the instrument did not move by means
of spirit or mercury, but on an entirely new principle, i.e., the expansion
of a curved piece of brass.
