Exhibit.—A specimen of the mantis shrimp was also exhibited, which on Monday last was dredged in the harbour by Mr. McIntyre, an employé of the Harbour Board. The shrimp is edible, and is considered a rare visitor in New Zealand waters. The mantis shrimp is found in large quantities in the Mediterranean Sea, and is highly appreciated among the inhabitants of Southern Europe as an article of food.
