Abstract

The 1894 session of the Royal Society was inaugurated on Monday,
April 9. The President, His Excellency Lord Gormanston, presided.
His Excellency formally welcomed Dr. E. E. Mobeek (Sweden), Surgeon
V. G. Thorpe, P.R.M.S (H.M.S. Penguin), and Rev. T. Robjohns
(Sydney), who were introduced by the Secretary (Mr. A, Morton). The Bishop of Tasmania read a paper on " The Gothenberg System,"
communicated by Mr. Russell Macnaughten.
Mr. A. Mault read a lengthy note on a MS. chart in the British
Museum, showing Tasman's tracks in the voyage of 1642-4, and presented
fac-simile copies of the original chart to the Society for reproduction
in its "Proceedings." A paper on " Some Tasmanian Chitons," by Mr. W. F. Bednall,
Corresponding Member (Adelaide), was read. Rev. C. W H. Dicker read an interesting paper on what
be believed to be some fossil impressions in the bed of the River Ouse. Surgeon Thorpe read some notes on a new species of Pedalion found
in the Solomon Islands. The President thanked the contributors of papers, and the proceedings
terminated.
