Abstract

The monthly evening meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania was
held at the Museum on Tuesday evening. Mr. James Barnard occupied
the chair. Apologies for absence were received from the President
(Viscount Gormanston) and the Hon. Sir J. W. Agnew. Mr. A. Osborn Green read a practical paper on the subject of Tasmanian timbers - their commercial uses and preparation for market. Mr. James R. McClymont, M.A., contributed an interesting paper
on " Ancient wrecks and relics of European vessels on Australian
coasts." Mr. L. Rodway described "A New Centrolepis," of the order
Centrolepidiae, seldom honoured with attention by any but the
inveterate collector or the botanical student. The customary votes of thanks were passed, on the motion of the
Chairman, who mentioned the probability of the Council considering
the timber question one of sufficient importance for a renewal of the
discussion at the next meeting.
