March 2. Professor Airy, V.P. in the Chair. — Various presents of books and other objects were laid before the Society. A Memoir, by the Rev. R. Murphy, of Caius College, was read, containing the conclusion of his Researches on the Inverse Calculus of Definite Integrals; also a Memoir by R. Stevenson, Esq., of Trinity College, on the Solution of some Problems connected with the theory of Straight Lines and Planes, by a new and symmetrical method of co-ordinates. A communication was likewise made by W. Hopkins, Esq., on Physical Geology; in which he shewed, on mechanical principles, that forces of elevation, acting on extended masses of nearly horizontal strata, would necessarily produce a double system of fissures, one in the direction of the beds, the other at right angles to that direction. In a discussion which took place afterwards, Professor Sedgwick pointed out several districts which illustrated the truth of Mr. Hopkins' theory, viz. Flintshire, Derbyshire, the mining districts of Cumberland, &c.

March 16, The Rev. Professor Clark, V.P. in the Chair.—A paper was read by Mr. W. W. Fisher, of Downing College, illustrated by coloured drawings, on the nature, structure, and changes of Tuber

cles: the conclusion at which the author arrived was, that tubercles are organized, or organizable products; that they consist in general in an alteration of the structure of the organ in which they occur; and that the changes which they undergo are essentially due to inherent vital actions, the process of softening being frequently marked by the development of a new order of vessels in the diseased structure. Afterwards, Mr. Willis gave an account of his views respecting the progress of Gothic architecture, especially with reference to the formation of tracery. He noticed that Romanesque architecture differed from classical in the employment of compound arches, (instead of architraves) several arches being placed under each other, so as to form successive orders of openings. As a next step, the sides of these arches are decorated with shafts; but these are different in the north and south of Europe. In the former (as in Norman architecture) the shafts replace the edges of the openings, and are called edge shafts; in Italian Romanesque the shafts are placed in the square recesses of the sides of the openings, and are nook shafts. When the successive orders of openings became of different forms, (as two arches under one, or trefoils under simple arches) there is an approximation to tracery; and when the mouldings which bound the openings form bars, we have tracery. Hence the mullions and bars have mouldings which follow a series of subordination corresponding to the orders of openings, and this subordination is clearly exhibited to the very latest period of good Gothic architecture.


The observations of" An Old Subscriber" shall be attended to.

Many thanks to " R. B. B." his request shall be attended to.

We have no idea how it happened that " The Advertisements" never appeared.

We have received all the Hymns alluded to by " E. C. K." and beg to thank him for his willing concurrence.

Our " Volume of Music" will be somewhat broader and longer than our 8vo. Edition of Psalms and Hymns, which will therefore preclude the possibility of their being bound together.

As far as the Observations of" X." apply to rejoicing he may be correct; but would he object to a supplicatory Psalm or Hymn?

We could wish that " W. J. B." always wrote with a steel pen.

In reply to " One of that Body"— we ask, where are they forbidden? and refer htm for further information to Bishop Heber's Letters to the present Archbishop of Canterbury (when Bishop of London), to the Preface to a Selection of Hymns published at York, to the end of his own Prayer Book, and to the universal and imperative demand.

We are unwillingly compelled to defer our " Law Report," with many other articles of information.

"J. R." lays us under many obligations for the tunes with which he has favoured us; and we hope our other friends will not forget us. The more simple the airs the better.

We Bhould be obliged if " Carivius" would favour us with his address, as we may wish to communicate with him.

We shall be indebted to " T. W." for his proffered Tunes as soon as convenient.
