The first meeting of the Philosophical Society for the present term was held on Monday evening, November 15, the Rev. Dr. Turton, the President, being in the chair. A variety of presents were notified, particularly the following additions to the Society's collection of birds: specimens of the Roseate Tern, the Sooty Petrel, and a new species of Swift, from Madeira, presented by the Rev. R. T. Lowe; a Rednecked Grebe, killed in Cambridgeshire, from the Rev. L. Jenyns; a variety of the Blackbird, from Dr. F. Thackeray; and a British-killed Spoonbill, from W. Yarrell, Esq. Also the young of the Kangaroo in the pouch, attached to the teat, from J. M'Arthur, Esq. The following communications were made to the Society :A memoir on the equation to curves of the second degree, by Augustus de Morgan, Esq., of Trinity College, Professor of Mathematics in the London University;— Observations on the Wourali Poison used by the Macoushi Indians of Demerara, by the Rev. W. Okes, of Caius College, who exhibited a quiver of the arrows, and a blow-pipe nine feet long, used in shooting them; a notice, communicated by Professor Cumming, from Mr. Edwards, of a substance resembling cannel coal, discovered in digging a canal near Norwich. There was also read the beginning of a series of observations by Mr. Lowe, on the Natural History of the Island of Madeira; the result of an attentive examination of
the organic productions of that island, of which Mr. Lowe has drawn up a systematic description. After the meeting, Professor Whewell gave an account, illustrated by models, of a mode of constructing stone vaults with no centering except for the diagonal ribs. This process has been revived by Mr. De Lassaux, of Coblentz, architect to the King of Prussia, and is shewn to have been practised in the vaulting of churches, &c. by the architects of the 15th century. Mr. De Lassaux calls it free-handed vaulting ("aus freier hand"), and shews it to be much cheaper, lighter, and stronger, than vaulting on a boarded centering. He finds it described by a French architect, Philibert de L'Orme, who wrote about 1568; and it is by him called "voutes modernes, et à la mode Françoise, que les maistres maçons ont accoustumé de faire aux eglises et logis des grandes Seigneurs."
At a meeting of the Fellows of Christ's College, to elect a Master, in the room of the Right Rev. Dr. Kaye, Lord Bishop of Lincoln, who recently resigned that situation, it was unanimously agreed by them to present his Lordship with a piece of plate, of the value of 500l. from private contributions amongst themselves, as a testimony of their respect, and to mark their sense of the great advantages which the Society derived from his Lordship's talents and virtues during the time that he presided over it.
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. We are sorry to have stirred the bile of "H. A. W." But we must entreat him to consider before he ventures a second attack. "It surely is a strange objection for a Protestant to urge against a religious rite, that it is not used on occasions where Scripture does not authorise it." True: but we never urged any such objection. We are not of opinion that the rite of extreme unction is authorised by Scripture at all. The unction mentioned by St. James was so far from "extreme," that the recipient always recovered. The Romanist, having changed the grounds and nature of the rite, was bound to change the application also. A viaticum is a very different thing from a medicine, natural or miraculous. If necessary, for a person in danger of death, it could matter little whether the scene was the chamber or the battle-field. The ghost in Hamlet speaks correctly (we mean, like "H. A. W." "according to the opinions of the Church of Rome"), when he says he was sent to Hades
"Unhousell'd, UNANOINTED, unanneal'd,
WITH ALL HIS IMPERFECTIONS ON HIS HEAD;"
yet did not Hamlet's father die on a sick-bed, but by the hand of an assassin; nor does it appear why a sudden death by poison should be more perilous to the soul than an exit by the sword of the enemy.
The Life and Writings of Justin Martyr being of sufficient importance to occupy two or three numbers, it is deemed expedient to commence with them in January.
"A Subscriber to the fund in aid of the Clergy Mutual Assurence," if possible, in our next. The suggestions of a "Scottish Episcopal Presbyter," and "J. S." nearly upon the same subject, shall be taken into consideration.
"C.S." has not been forgotten. We have such opposite documents before us, that we must refer him to those who are more skilled in legal points.
A" Constant Reader" and a " Middlesex Clergyman" have been received.
We have not yet seen " Dr. J. W." or his " Brother Tom."
R. P. will oblige us in any way that will gratify himself.
