The monthly evening meeting of the Society was held on Tuesday, April 9, T. Stephens, Esq., M.A., F.G.S., in the chair.
The Secretary, after some remarks as to the great loss the society would sustain by the absence from their meetings of the Rev. W. W. Spicer, observed that the subject had been brought forward at last month's meeting. At that time, however, Mr. Spicer had not resigned his seat at the Council, but subsequently he had done so. A paper "On some New Tasmanian Shells" (third series) by the Rev.
J. E. Tenison-Woods was read.
A paper "On certain Tertiary and Post-Tertiary deposits on Flinders, Barren, Badger, and others Islands in Bass' Straits," by R. M. Johnston, Esq., was read.
