the Society's room at the Museum on Tuesday evening, June 14. His
Excellency the Governor Sir R. G. C. Hamilton, K.C.B., LL.D., presided,

Includes
A.A.A.S. Journal - The Secretary (Mr. Alex. Morton) laid on the table Volume III. of
the journal of the New Zealand meeting, which had just arrived. He
also said the journal of the Hobart meeting was well in hand.
Notes on Natural Limits to Occupation on the Land (a Paper),
Notes on Square-set System of Timbering in Mines, etc. (a Paper), As regarded Mr. Taylor's paper, he was sure they had
all listened to it with great interest. The explanation he had given
was very clear, and he had no doubt his object would be fulfilled if
the general attention of the raining public was directed both to the
advantages and drawbacks of this description of timbering.
July Meeting , - The usual monthly meeting of the Royal Society was held at the
Museum on Tuesday evening, July 12. His Excellency the Governor Sir Roberto. C. Hamilton, K.C.B., LL.D,, presided, and there was a
large attendance.
The Secretary stated he had received a telegram from Mr. Russell,
the Government Astronomer of New South Wales, informing him that
it would be impossible for his paper to arrive in Hobart by that night's
train. The paper was one of very great importance, dealing as it did
with the late Leake bequest in connection with astronomy. Under
the circumstances he would ask for the paper to be postponed till next
meeting.
Plants New to Tasmania (a Paper),
Artificial Obstructions to Occupation of the Land (a Paper),
On the Occurrence of Some Australian Ardeides (a Paper)
