There is invariably considerable interest attached to the discovery and identification of meteoric substances.
I therefore assume that a few remarks respecting the recent acquisition of a small but veritable meteroic stone, fully authenticated as having been unearthed in this State, may be of interest. The specimen in question makes the second which has been discovered in this Island, and brings the total number recorded up to date as having been obtained in Australasia, to about 33 examples.
