Abstract

The monthly meeting of the Royal Society was held on Tuesday
evening, July 13. Mr. James Barnard in the chair.
The Chairman said he was sure they all deeply regretted the late
sad railway accident that had taken place since the last meeting of
the Society, one of the sufferers being their worthy hon. sec. (the Hon.
J. W. Agnew); but he was pleased to learn that Dr. Agnew was in
a fair way of recovery, and hoped that a few days would see him
about again.
Two fellows were elected to the Society, list of additions were presented to the Library, such as Annals and magazines of Natural History.
A paper was read by Mr. R.A. Bastow, F.L.S. entitled: "Collection, Observation and Identification of Mosses."
Notes were read on the "Discovery of Australia by the Portuguese", in reference to the presentation of photo-lithographs of four early
charts of Australia, Mr. J. K. McClymont made the following remarks:
"The maps lying on the table are photo-lithographs, in part or whole,
of four MS. maps of the sixteenth century, taken from the originals
in the British Museum at the instance of the Trustees of the Melbourne,
Sydney, and Adelaide Public Libraries."
