New Members.-Mr. James Clark Gavin, and Count F. de Jouffroy d'Abbans.

The Chairman, in opening the business, remarked that the chief and, indeed, the only business which he had to perform was to introduce to them the President-elect, Dr. Hutchinson. In vacating the chair he had to thank the Society for the invariable kindness and consideration he had received from the members, and he had merely to express the hope and belief that the same kind consideration would be accorded to the President-elect.'

Dr. Hutchinson then assumed the chair, and read his inaugural address.
