Remarks on Fossil Cetacean Teeth.

Mr. A. Hamilton exhibited fossil cetacean teeth from the phosphate-deposit at Millburn, and contrasted them with some from the Oamaru district, now in the Otago Museum.

Mr. Hamilton exhibited a stone relic (belonging to Mr. Dunlop, of the Orepuki Shale-works), which he believed to be unique, and which was perhaps a sacred relic brought by early immigrants from the Society Islands.
