Exhibits.—Mr. Colenso exhibited some interesting specimens, among them were two samples of naturally variegated wool, sent to him by Mr. Balfour, of Glenross. Also a couple of ancient coins, one a denarius of Julius Cæsar, found, curiously enough, on the Napier Hills.

The Hon. Secretary, Mr. Hamilton, exhibited a very beautiful specimen of the adult White Heron, or Kotuku, with very fine dorsal plumes.
