There were 69 persons present. At a private meeting afterwards it was passed on the President's motion, that elections should be somewhat more formal, on the Vice-President's that one fourth of the members present could blackball. R. A. Farrar, seconded by O. Elton, proposed that the members be not elected from the 4th Form. G. R. Askwith, A.

H. Hawkins, and J. F. Hardy opposed, and the motion was lost. 0. Elton's motion " That 4th Form visitors be excluded” was also lost. J. F. L. Hardy carried " That it should not be lawful for any member or motion once rejected to be proposed again in the same term, to prevent captious obstruction.” E. W. Silver found no seconder, when he proposed that every member should speak once in two terms.

Matural History Society. Thursday, May 27th–After some exhibitions by the President, G. R. Askwith read a paper on “coins of all Ages, Greek, Roman, and English ;" he exhibited a great many rare and valuable Coins in illustration; which were, most creditably, handled with great care, and not one lost or damaged.

Thursday, June 10th.—The President mentioned the donation of the following

Shells from Madeira, from Miss Ormerod, who bad most kindly also undertaken the onerous and difficult task of arranging and naming the whole collection of the Society.

Valuable spongs, corals, and shells from the Bermudas, from Lieut. F. Carpenter, O.M.

Coins, from J. E. M. Hamilton.

Handsome Ammonite from new railway cutting, from Mr. Guppy, better known as “Mark.

Pair of Indian Fly Fans, from G. Hadow.

Baskets of Ammonites, Echini, &c., from cutting, from the Master: wbose enormous Ammonite given to the Society, also lay on the table, in illustration of the lecture on Ammonites by W. H. Macdonald Esq., which came next. The lecturer described the habits and anatomy of ammonites, cuttle fish, nautili, and kindred creatures, in a most lively lecture, which never suffered the attention of the audienco to flag for a moment.

On Saturday, June 12th, about 90 members of the Society, including several of the Common Room, took part in a Field-day, which, though very enjoyable, thanks to the weather, the scenery, and Mr. Duck, was somewhat barren in results. After dining in Chisbury camp, which is to be visited this year by the British Archæological Society, the company broke up and re-assembled for tea at Leigh Hill, arriving in scattered detachments, which had come some by way of Bedwyn Common, and others by Bedwyn Church, and Wolf Hall.
